provided with a little book published this year ,

require In his conversation with the people.
-r-The French steamer Lafayette arrived
here from Brest to-day. Just as she was about
to sall from Havre forty of her crew were Im?
pressed into the Imperial service. The news
of the recent French disasters, and of Hie over?
throw of the empire and the proclamation of
a French republic, was first made known to
the. crew and the passengers of the Lafayette
.at Sandy Hook. The announcement of the
disasters brought tears to the eyes of the
lemale and to even some o? the male passen- :
gera, but thia despondency was overcome bv J
-unbounded enthusiasm caused by the news of
the proclamation of a republic. Cries of Vive

Lafayette to France they will volunteer in the '
service of their country.

II hasten to describe the uniform at their dis?
posa". It ls a black velvet sack or jacket and
black velvet knee-breeches, (some prefer
them long, but the average length is a few
1 nches below the knee,) red and black check
.square stockings, and flannel shirt ot the same
pattern and color, a black velvet cap with a
.tri-olor feather, a game pouch and gourd.
Thia la the uniform for the frontiers. Nothing
has been settled as yet as to what the women
will wear when lt comes to marching off to
the Paris fortifications; but as all hare declared
they mean to take positions round the capital
In time of need, we may look forward to the
varied styles on avery extensive circuit, just
twenty-seven leagues around."
-The following anecdote of General Trochu
may be read with interest at a time when he
is called upon to play an important part in
public affairs, as lt shows that he ls not less
distinguished for his private virtues than for
his talents and courage as a soldier. Upon
the death of his father, some years ago, he be?
came entitled, under the French law of succes
sion,'to a moiety of the small patrimonial estate
in Brittany, which was to be divided between
himself and his brother. This brother had
eleven children. The General has none. He
simply remarked that his brother needed the
property more than he did, and relinquished
his share of it. Not long afterwards Iiis
brother likewise died. Upou this occurrence
the General observed that, having no family of
his own, he was the better able to provide
for that which Providence had bestowed upon
him. He adopted his eleven nephews and
nieces, laid down his carriage, reduced his
own domestic expenditures, and assumed
with cheerfulness the duty of providing for the
whole of his late brother's family and house?
The Military Failure of France.
For more than half a century it had been
the general belief that the French military
system was practically perfect, and that, in
all matters which affected the comfort of the
soldier in camp and on the march, there was'
absolutely no room for improvement. This
feeling wa3 strengthened by the knowledge
that military glory was the one great tradi?
tion aud constant desire of the French na?
tion, and, as Ute Napoleonic dynasty was
hedged in by steel, it was not doubted that
the Emperor had, even to the injury of other
interests, lavished his care and the public
treasure upon the soldiers of the Empire. It
was, then, a shock to all Europe when, im?
mediately after the first battle of the Franco
Prussian war, the French officers and sol?
diers complained loudly of short rations, de?
fective ammunition, insufficient transporta?
tion, and a lack of hospital supplies. The
whole supply service had broken dnwn.
Where the French system was thought
the strongest, i. e., in administrative or?
ganization for the comfort and protection of
the soldier, it had shown itself incapable,
weak, and in a condition of helpless confu
jion. Plausible explanations were given to
the public. Crie3 of treachery near the
:hrone, and of fraud in high places, were rais?
ed without delay. Every explanation was
riven but the true one, which is, that the
French supply departments are radically
vrong in system, and, since the peace of
1815, have broken down whenever the strain
)f war has been put upon them. The main
acts are explained by General Trochu in bis
veil known work, "L'Arm?e Francaise en
.1867 " which wor!c, by the way, shelved the
tuthor, and gained for him the ill-will of
?very military barnacle in the Empire. In 1
he chapter upon Intendance or Administra- 1
;ion, General Trochu says:
"In France, after the campaigns of tho Re?
public and the Empire, men whose experience
ivas considerable united for the purpose oi
furnishing the army with a 6ystem of militai y
art ministration, the principles, and mechanism
of which had a high practical value in refer?
ence to war.In the system of these great
administrators, the direction an^ control of
the various services were carried on, side by
side, without being confounded with one ano?
ther.The i.irectors, the controllers, and
the executive officers were men of business,
who had been initiated into business from the
first step in their career, ind educated from an
early period lor the performance of their func?
tions in the army by actual duly, by exchanges,
and by being specially brought :nto contact in
every way with the details of those functions.
They lived from the uge ot elghteea or twenty
in an atmosphere of business, having sp?cial
reference to the administration of the army.
.The members cf the central department,
and the agents of the administrative services,
commenced their career as students, learning
from their youth what was always to be their
specialty. Under the system which prevails
now-a-days, all such functionaries, without ex?
ception, before entering upon their public busi?
ness, have been through long years-the years
of youth, in which men learn and study with
most fruit-officers and non-commissioned
officers In the army. With them a public ex?
amina'ion takes the place ol tenor fifteen
years of practical and professional experience.
What do I say-of thirty or forty years of such
practical experience; for we see generals of
brigade, not unfrequeutly at the last sta^e of
their career, becoming Intendant-Generals,
that is to say, the arbiters for the next war, of
the existence ot our troops In the field. It is
idle, I think, to search through the whole
scope of the public affairs of France lora more
astounding specimen of blunder."
The same high authority assures us that
through the failure of the Intendance in the'
Italian campaign, whole divisions of the
French army wei'? often for days together
without bread; and that in the Crimea the
army must have perished but that a well
kuown house of business in Marseilles step?
ped forward to sustain a paralyzed depart?
ment. Again, we find that ia consequence
of being thrown upon the Intendance for its
supplies, the medical department of the
French army, both in Italy and the Crimea,
was continually at its wit's ends. The Sur
geon-in-Chief of the Guard, writing from
Alexandria on the 19th of May, 1859, says:
"No litters, no ambulances, no wagons; I
have begged hard for chloroform and per
chloride ot Iron; nothing has as yet been given
He writes again from Valeggio ou the 7th
"For the last fortnight some regiments have
only once or tw.ee had bread, and even then it
was mouldy and of a very bad quality. Wine
has completely failed; there lias been scarcely
ipy l3sue of it."
On the 2d of July, an officer wrote to the
Emperor himself from Castiglione:
"Sire, the wounded of Solferino, who are
crowded here, have never yet had their
wounds dressed fer want of supplies. We
have lint, but no linea, no sheets, no sugar, no
Matters wore quite as bad in tbe Crimea,
perhaps worse. It is stated in the Gazette
Hebdomadaire, in which some recent arti?
cles on the medical statistics of the French
army have attracted great attention, that
whereas in the English army 33.9 per cent,
and ia the American army 40.2 per cent, of
surgical operations in war prove fatal, in the
French army the proportions were, during
the Italian campaign, 63.9 per cent.i during
that in the Crimea 72.8; and the cause as?
signed fo: such excessive mortality ia the
A fi JU V;liniMJii
supremacy-the omnipotence-of the Inten?
dance Militaire, which, from a medical point
of view, is io a condition of absolute inca?
This reads like a chapter from the history
of the war of 1870. Divisions without bread
for days together; no linen, no provisions
for the wounded; no ambulances; no wag?
ons ; no chloroform. And, we may now add,
cartridges of sand, cannon balls of wood,
and thousands of horses existing only on
paper. How was it possible for the French
to succeed ? Their system was wrong ; their
officers were inefficient; they starved before
battle, and, if wounded, lay rotting on the
field until they were succored by the advanc?
ing Germans. No army could hope to main?
tain its discipline and keep up its spirits
under these conditions. And the whole re?
sponsibility rests upon the shoulders of that
"Intendance Militaire," which is "ia a
condition of absolute incapacity."
Another popular delusion is dispelled. It
eau no longer be said, in matters of military
administration, that "they manage these
"thiugs better in France."
A public meeting was held in Greenville,
on Friday, the 2d instant, at which Dr. James
Furman, the president of the university, an?
nounced the plan of endowment which had
been agreed upon, viz: 8200,000 to be
raised in bonds, bearing interest from Janu
uary 1st, 1871-principal not liable to be
demanded till January, 1876, when one-fifth
was payable ; and so on every year, till the
whole was paid. If the obligee died before
the expiration of the first five years, then the
bond became null and void. A preparatory
school is to be connected with the institution,
where tuition, free of charge for ten years,
would be given to those taking bonds. El?
oquent appeals, in behalf of the university,
were made by Dr. Manly, the Bev. W. D.
Thomas and Mr. Capers.
We sincerely hope that the efforts of the
trustees may be successful, and that the
corresponding secretar}', Mr. T. D. Gwin,
will soon have enough applications for
bonds to make up the amount required.
General Phil. Sheridan, the barn-burning,
woman-insulting hero of the Valley cam?
paign of 1864, told Bismarck that he could
ou ly compare the surrender of Napoleon at
Sedan to that of General Lee at Appomat?
tox. Comparisons, we know, are odious,
but we cannot forget that General Lee sur?
rendered at Appomattox only 27,000 men,
of whom Ie33 than 10,000 were armed. At
the close of the war, the Confederate forces
numbered, at the outside, 150,000 men:
while, nt that time, the strength of Hie Uuit
ed States armies wa3 over 900,000 men, of
all arms. With as many men ns McMahon
had at Sedan, General Lee would have
marched from Petersburg to New York and
thence to Chicago, whether the opposing
army was double or treble the strength of
bis own. }- _ .
The Nomination of Rulney.
It seems that Senator Rainey has been
rather obstreperous since his nomination for
Congress by the Radical Convention. The
Darlington Democrat says :
"Two weeks ago, Rainey would doubtless
have received thc nomination of the Beform
party for Congress, simply because he was es?
teemed to be honest. But the character cf the
speeches delivered by him recently renders
such a nomination now, In our opinion, lmpos
possible. He sustains the corrupt administra?
tion of Scott, endorses the reckless expendi?
ture of public money, maligns the whites, and
endeavors to intensify the ill feelings unfortu?
nately existing between the races.
''Under these circumstances, the ratification
of lils nomination, we repeat, ls impossible'"
MOST likely the "French officer," shut up
in Sedan, who sent the New York Tribune a
telegraphic report of the battle, and of the sur?
render of McMahon's army, wa9, himself,
one of the French officers whose "neglect
of duty," and "avoidance of the fatigues of
long marches and the discomfiture of b?v?
ouacs, " he so bitterly condemns. His place,
if an officer, was with his men-not in a
THE Radical meeting held at Blackstock,
last Saturday, was an utter failure. The
Chester Reporter says that even the elo?
quence of Wimbush failed to draw from the
cora fields oear by a number of colored men
who were pulling fodder.
Ox Wednesday, Governor Scott commis?
sioned thc officers of the Columbia Rifles, as
follows: Richard O'Neale, Jr., captain; C.
J. Iredell, first lieutenant; W. H. Mauning,
THERE was to have been a Grand Radical
Rally at Aaderson on Saturday, but no
speakers arrived until late in the evening,
when the majority of the faithful had gone
home. It was a huge fiasco.
THE Oconee Courier says that the Radical
County Treasurer is a defaulter to the tune
of $1980. _

There ls hardly a elty or town of any note in the
country into which they have not found their
way. The reason of this widespread popularity
