brought about some queer developments. One

lars in an "evening. The troubles Between
them and the managers are to be settled
by litigation. Both parties claim that they are
in the right, and that they are supported by
the best legal advice. The whole question ls
this, whether a manager, after selling a ticket
to his theatre, has any right to refuse admis?
sion lo the holder, no matter who' he may be,
or through bow many hands the ticket passes.
-The English manufacturers, it ls stated,
are already beginning lo reap a rich harvest
from the war. At Leeds the mills have begun
to work for five days In the week, and soon
will be required to work sir to supply the de?
mand for military stores. At Birmingham the
gunmakers have received more orders lor
small arms than they can execute. The orders
do not come directly from the belligerents,
but it is believed are sent by neutral powers
who desire to guard against the contingencies
of the war now raging. France, however. It ls
stated, was preparing for two months bet?re
the war broke out, and a few weeks ago was
supplied with 30,000 chassepots made by a Bir?
mingham firm. The London Telegraph as?
serts that both France and Prussia will make
use of Birmingham as a source of supply, and
says that lt is not comforting to think that
England should thus take part in the war.
One source of consolation, however, is derived
from the reflection that these establishments
at Birmingham form part of the military
strength of Great Britain, and that by means
I of the public and private manufactories the
government can produce more rifles in a
given time than any other nation.
Lands for the Landless, Again.
At the time that the first appropriation of
$200,000 was made for the purposes of the
Land Commission, it was pretty generally
believed that tbe whole scheme was a politi?
cal contrivance for securing votes to the
Scott party. This might be done in two
ways: By eellinfj lands on a long credit to
the colored people, so that they would have
homes of their own of more than forty acres
if without the long-promised mule; or by al?
lowing the more prominent Radicals to
Unger the funds, aud so receive, indirectly?
bribes which Governor Scott would be un?
willing to give from his own pocket It was
seen, at once, that it would be sheer folly
fer the white land-owners to lose an election
because of the influence exerted upon the
freedmen by the distirbution among them of
what la?ds could be bought, at fair prices, for
8200,000 or even $700,000. For every acre
of land which the Land Ring could sell at a
high price, the white land-owners could afford
to sell, at a low price, a hundred acres, or
could give them away altogether. In this
way they could defy the Scott party tq make
political* capital out of their land specula?
tions. But the Land Biog have cast
away their every advantage. Instead of
busily buying land, and disposing of it, for a
SQug, to the poorer colored people, they have
purchased lands at twice and four times
their value, putting the diff?rence into their
Dwn carpet-bags. So far, not one transac?
tion of the Land Ring has 'been exposed in
which a. State or county official has not had
a share. Besides Scott, Chamberlain, and
the rest of the Advisory Board, we unearth,
as co-speculatora, Senator Cain, Constable
Yocum, Representative DeLarge, Represen?
tative Whipper, Speaker Moses, County Au?
ditor Lunney, and others. And the follow?
ing letter from our Columbia correspondent
shows " that Representatives Purvis and
Smalls belong to the same unholy band.
"Land for the landless, again. Our philan?
thropic Radicals never tire of serving the dear
people, anti ot' trying to secure homes for the
homeless. Their benevolence ls boundless.
'.Purvis figures In the good work of securing
homes for the 'children of Hagar.' He has
sold-so comes the information from Lexing?
ton-the Geiger lands to the Land Commis?
sion for $8050, lhat ls 2300 acres at $3 50 an
'.How much did he pay for lt ? I know mon
who think.he paid ?5000 for the whole tract,
and some of these men-good citizens they are
too-think that he paid more than the full
value lor lt.
"The difference between $5000' and $3050 is
"How oui- friends, the Radicals, do love
those Lexington negroes !
"In Beaufort, the homeless are not forgol"
ten. My informant tells me that Smalls-Cap?
tain Smalls of the Planter-has sold lands In
that county to the State at the rate of 56 an
acre. Of course every mah is not a judge of
the value of land, but my informant thought
that such lands could be easily and any time
bought there for $1 an acre.
' "Buy at $1 and sell, at SC-something of a
"How's that for high ?"
.Upon the purchase of the Geiger lands
t?tere is a loss to the State ot at least $3000,
and upon the Beaufort lands the loss is $5
au acre. And-mark this!- if these land3
be sold to tho freedmen they will have to
pay out of their hard earnings the huge pro?
fits which the Land Ring have made.
Thrift Mast Follow Forney.
The Washington Chronicle prints a long
letter from a correspondent at Columbia, in
which the Union Reformers, and THE
CHARLESTON NEWS, are spoken of with, more
force than elegance. This congenial cor?
respondent has discovered that the Reform"
party means nothing more than "the loaves
"and fishes;'* that South Carolina is "the
"soundest State, financially, South of Mason
"and Dixon's hue;" that taxation is less in
this State than "in three-fourths of the
"Other States of the Union;" and that much
more would have been done "to induce im
"migration and establish free schools, "had it
not been for "the persistent opposition" of
THE CIIABLESTO.V NEWS and its frieuds.
Having in this way whetted the appetite of
the readers of the Chronicle, the* correspon?
dent declares that these "devils incarnate,"
(meaning the innocent and humble Re?
formers, ) had joined in a hellish conspiracy
for the murder of Governor Scott early in
September. This plot "came to light through
"one of the convicts in the penitentiary.''
The plan was "to put several pouuds of
"powder under the cushions of several' of
"the seats in tue car where the Governor
"was expected to ride when he visited hi3
"family up in the country, and place a suffi
"cient number of fulminating matches in
"the powder to ignite it the moment any
"friction was brought iuto action by the
"Governor's sitting down. This, it was cal
?jj - gay
"enlatad, would bring about bia destruction
"with the least possible chance of detec?
... Well-might the hairs of the correspondent
stand on end; devoutly may he bless his
stars if this Ku-Klux joke do not prove a
stern reality. Several pounds of powder !
Under the cushions of several seats ! This
is worse than the bombs bf Orsini, or the in?
fernal machine of Fieschi. No wonder that
Governor Scott bugs Columbia close. In
every summer breeze must he snuff the un?
familiar brimstone. Possibly, the whole of
Main street, Columbia, may be mined with
several tons of powder, and his Excellency
will be blown sky-high when next he takes a
ride in the historic double buggy. The fiends
who would put several, ponds of powder
under several seats, for one man to sib upon,
muBt be capable of laying Columbia in ruins,
or of reading Forney's Chronicle. \
Now that Forney has disposed of Bullo?k
and Georgia, he may make it pay to direct
his vision to poor Sonth Carolina. Forney
was paid 50 cents a Une for the lying articles
about Georgia, printed in his paper "while
Congress was in session. Advertising now
is dull. Even Bucbu, Sozodont a .d Solo?
mon's Bitters will not fill his emptying
columns. It is likely, therefore, that for
printing the letter of its so-called "Coium
"bia correspondent" the Chronicle was paid
half-price, or only 25 cents a line. Another
dose of the same medicine may be expected
shortly. _ _
America anti the War.
The New York Times, in a powerful
le?der on the recent series of reverses to the
French arms, strongly urges the mediation
of the United States between the belligerents
in. the interests of peace. It says:
"Surely this country has some claim to be
heard at the -Court of Berlin. The United
States would, we behove, speak with a voice
of giant power, and might be the means, under
Providence, of averting desolation from thous?
ands ol firesides. Those who lost children or
relatives lb the war, which recently darkened
our own land, can sympathize with the mourn?
ers now, on both sides of the Rhine. Will the
government make Itself the expression of the
opinion, which now widely prevails, that'this
war ought to be stopped ? We are at a crisis
In which our influence might be exerted with
great hope-we might almost say in the cer?
tain confidence-of doing good. If the Presi?
dent would address a letter to the King of
Prussia It would produce an instant effect.
The United States would have ten times more
Influence than any European power. It seems
to be a solemn duty on our part to use this in?
fluence. The moment is propitious. The
President ought to act, and act at once, and to
save this country from the reproach of having
done nothing to check this awful bloodshed.'
Secretary of State Cardozo. In a speech
made at Greenville, on the 12tb, claimed, as
one of the "great benefits" conferred on the
State by his party, the change of our system
of taxation from a fictitious to an actual
valuation. . ,
A correspondent of the Columbia Guardian
calls the attention of Mr. Cardozo to the
sections of the constitution adopted by us
in 18G5, and the constitution of 1868, and
asks him to point out the difference :
"All taxes upon property, real or personal,
shall be laid upon the actual value of ttie prop?
erty taxed, as the same shall be ascertained
by an assessment made for the purpose of lay?
ing such taxes."-?tee. 8, Artt 1, Conj. 1865.
'?All taxes upon property, real or personal,
shall be laid upon the actual value of the prop?
erty taxed, as the same shall be ascertained
by an assessment made for the purpose of lay?
ing such tax."-Sec. 33, .Art. 2, Cons. 1868. j
TUE Charleston Sudlicher Correspondent, \
commeutiug upon that portion of King,Wil
liam's proclamation to the Freuoh people, :
which reads that "it would be unfair to puu
"ish men who belong to a country cursed with
"a Bonaparte for its sovereigu," calls atteu-.
tiou to the agreement of the Allied Powers,
in 1815, never to treat with a Bonaparte,
and argues that King William is now con?
tinuing in the path marked out for Europe
by the treaty of Paris. The result of this,
according to the Correspondent, will be the
dethronement of Napoleon.

-The different townships iu Marion County
have held meetings for the election of dele?
gates to the county nominating convention, to
be held on September 5.
-The Marion Crescent takes tills view of the
Orr letter: "The . New York Tribune wants
the Republican party to take up some Southern
man and promote him to honor and distinc?
tion as a means of building up a Republican
party among the native Southerners. The
Tribune has indicated Judge Orr as its prefer?
ence for this purpose, and the Judge has put
himself into the market aa soon as he thought
lt would be decent and safe to do so. Judge
Orr is a born office-seeker, and has that happy
flexibility ol' character and principle that
enables him to adapt himself to the wants of
the market." 1
The First District.
The cUflerent counties in the First District
are invited, by a resolution adopted at Ben
nettsville on Monday, to send delegates to n
