The wildest rumors concerning Governor Scott
were in circulation yesterday. It ls said that his j
Excellency openly charged Congressman Bowen I j
with "selling him ont." Bowen, by way of reply, j
flaunted in the face of the snraged Governor a
copy of the Bowen pester which adorns all the I \
fences and dead walls In the city. Scott would j
not be comforted, and then, or afterward, there
was "a blow and a dodge." It seems to be the j
general opinion among the Scottites that "some- J i
body" has been sold ont, bnt they don't know ex- j j
ac tl y TS-ho it is. His Excellency left ' Charleston
last right, but win not go back home to Ohio
until next week. " .j

HOW SCOTT WAS ELECTED.
The minority report ol the Howard Investi?
gating committee, submitted to Congreaa last
8esslon, unearths a little more rascality on the
part of R. K. Scott, and explains the manner of
his election in 1868. On page 28 of the minority
report is the following damning statement:
"It was offered to be proved that In South Caro?
lina Assistant Commissioner Scott had been
elected Governor of the State by the corrupt
use of rations, provisions and transportations;
that, as an officer of the bureau, and having con?
trol of this property, he, by and with the knowl?
edge and connivance of Howard, DID DBE SUCH
PROPERTY TO THE EXTENT OF $300,000 FOR THIS
PURPOSE. Tne names of the witnesses, men of
high character, and members of the Republican
party, were handed to the committee, and sub?
poenas asked for them, by whom it was stated by
respectable persons these facts coma be sub?
stantiated. The majority of .the committee re?
fused to allow them to be summoned." <

A hurricane occurred on Friday night, but with
little damage to the city or harbor. It was very
disastrous along the coast.
At Matanzas a very extraordinary rife of water
Inundated the space between two rivers, where
the railway depots' were located. The depots,
trains and passenger houses all disappeared. The
loss of Ufe ls estimated at 2000. The loss of
property ls enormous. ,
Cardenas also Buttered. The lower part of the
city ls laid waste. The interior of the Island
back of Cardenas and Matanzas ls desolated. The
cane being backward this season, sustains less
damage than other crops.
It Was the severest hurricane within a cen tn

the Baxter, bark Hunt, brig Charles, schooner
Edwin. Many vessels havebeen damaged. There
was a great loss or cooperage and stock In ware?

AFFAIRS IX KERSHAW.
A Ring Fiasco-Wu j- the Militia ls Or?
ganized-Prospecta ot the Reformers.
[FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
CAMDEN, October is, 1870.
Toe greatest "fizzle" that this place bas ever
witnessed, was the grand Republican mass meet?
ing that was advertised to be held here to-day
Reuben Tomllnson, State auditor, was to have
been here, bat, failed to meet the appointment,
and Instead of him they trotted out a little
preacher, hamed Jackson.
The meeting comprised not more th >n one Iran
dred and fifty men, women and boya Less en
thuslasm was manifested than on any occasion
we recollect. Jackson made a speech which was
a disgrace to civilization, and positively shocking
in a minister of the Gospel. Hore absurd propo?
sitions, more enormous falsehoods, were never
entertained nor uttered, we venture to say, In the
annals of any nation's history. One of his propo?
sitions was, that the more laborers there were,
the higher wages would be. One of his lies was,
that in .Virginia, North Carolina and Tennessee
the rights of the colored people had been taken
away since the Conservatives had got Into power.
He spoke for nearly three boura, and failed to
elicit one hearty cheer; and when a company of
militia were marched up to the place of speaking,
nearly the entire crowd left bim and went to ex*
amintng the guns and talking to the militia.
After stacking arms, Jackson told them that they
had befn given arma by the wise forestghtof Gov?
ernor Scott, ioho was ?etem?nea to have a Tree
election, and had secured lt by arming the mili?
This sentiment from one who frequents the
headquarters of the Bing shows, beyond ques?
tion, that our surmises were true. But notwith?
standing1 this fact, we of the Union Reform party
of Kershaw are going to have our rights respect?
ed at the ballot box, even at the risk of a fight.
Notwithstanding this open expression of the
cause of the arming ef the militia, and issuing
cartridges, we are going to see that every man,
white or colored, Uniun Reformer or Republican,
who come? to the polls armed, ls taken care of In
the manner prescribed by the act of Congress.
The Seo ttl tea have appointed as managers of
election In this county six men of the same
family, all office-holders, or their sons, and well
known partisans and appointees of Scott and his
minions. This ls the guarantee we have for a fair
election. We are naturally Indignant, but will do
ali in our power to see that the arrangements
made by the chairman of the Union Reform and
Republican executive committees, respectively!
are carried mm.
The Scottltes In this county are very much
alarmed by the rapid strides we have made, and
they are not sure but that we will earry the elec?
tion. They show lt by the managers they have
appointed. ... *t
Keep lt before the people that Scott's purpose
in arming the militia ls to preserve the colored
men from threats and Intimidations, and that he
gives them arms to secure a fair and free election.
_ _ _CAMDEN.
Opinion of a British Colonel of Engi?
neers on the Defensibility of Paris.
The London Times contains a remarkable
letter Lom a colonel of the Royal Engineers,
in reply to a communication from an amateur
engineer, signed "Conybeare." He says lt ls
a mistaken idea to suppose that a fort is com?
manded by a neighboring hill because the lat?
ter ls a few yards higher. No fort ls com?
manded, lu the military sense, unless the Inte?
rior of the work is seen and exposed to fire.
"Few military engineers," he says, "believe
in the possibility of reducing Paris by a regu?
lar siege. The Prussians, to do this, must
construct regular approaches, with breaching
batteries, to the very edge of the ditch of the
enceinte, but Buch works are not possible
against a garrison of four hundred thousand
men, who make continued sorties. There are
only two modes, therefore, of reducing Paris.
One. the slow but sure process ol blockade;
the other, the quick but barbarous process ot
bombardment from distant batteries."
The Russian War Cloud.
"If," says the Pall Mall Gazette, "Russia
should crowd us to the wail In Asia, what a
pretty pickle England would be In." Of late
years the power ol Russia has been rapidly in?
creasing, her material resources having been
developed as civilization pressed over Its bor?
ders and the policy ot Its government became
more European than Asiatic. One-seventh of
the land of the globe ls hers; her population is
about 75,000,000 souls, and only her western
border has to be defended. The Russian regu?
lar army is more than 800,000 men on a war
looting; the army of the reserve is 127.925, and
of the second reserve 200,000. Besides these
are the Cossacks, who, In lieu of taxes to the
fovernment, render military service. Russia
as Improved weapons, 700,000 breech-loading
rifles, and abundant artillery. In 15ti9 its navy
consisted of 290 steamers, with 2.05 guns; 29
sailing vessels, with G5 guns; 2? Iron-clads,
with 149 guns; and a force of mor,. .lian G0.O0O
sailors. From this lt ls evident how formida?
ble a foe she would be, and how much she
has done since the Crimean war.
The Sword and the Bowl.
The day after the fall of Sedan, King Wil?
liam, being at dinner with his staff, as soon as
the cloth was drawn, ordered the glasses to be
filled, and said:
"Gentlemen, I give you a toasfc I drink to
the army, with my heartfelt thanks for Its
bravery and devotion. You, Von Roon, have
sharpened the sword; you, Von Moltke, have
wielded it, and you, Bismarck, have lifted
Prussia to the proud eminence she at present
fills. I drink to the army, to the glorious
three, and to all gentlemen present wno have
contributed so much to our glorious victory."
The same day, at Moscow, the Emperor
Alexander or Russia, Immediately on the re?
moval ol the first course, ordered silence by
his head attendant, and then exclaimed:
"A toast, gentlemen, a toast. You have all
heard the news. I congratulate my uncle on
his success, and I drink to the health of King
William." . ?
He rose, drank his wine-"hoch ! hoch !
hoch r-and dashed his glass to shivers. The
company, upstanding, followed.
-The Princess Louisa, who ls about te depart
from the time-honored custom of the British
realm by marrying one of her mother's subjects,
is 22 years of age, and her destined husband, the
Marquis of Lorn, ls 25. The young man is a
member of Parliament, representing the County
of Argyll, and ls heir to one of the oldest peerages
in the United Kingdom, as well a? to a name of
historic renown. His father, the Duke of Argyll,
a man of high personal character and scholar?
ship, ls the most distinguished of the handful of
Liberals In the House of Lords, and, during the
war of secession, was noted for his steady friend?
ship for the North. The Duchess ls a daugher of
the Duke of Sutherland, and Mistress of the Robes
of Queen Victoria. It ls gratifying to learn that
in England the possibility of the Princess succeed?
ing to the throne "ls too remote to render the al?
liance dangerous;" but In what manner lt might
be dangerous ff her chances of succession were
not remote, seems to us not quite clear.

To the rotere of Charleston County:
A writer tinder the signature or "Facts," bas
twice attacked me through the columns of THE
CHARLESTON NEWS. To his first communication
I give a denial and a plain statement of my posi?
tion. To his second, In which he offers to give an
affidavit as to certain statements, which amount
to nothing-, ]. wUl state that I have inquired for the
author of "Facts," from the editor of THE NEWS,
and been Informed that he ls. one John Carsten,
and to show what bis affidavit would be worth,
and the animus by which he ls actuated in his
groundless attacks npon me, I submit the annex?
ed affidavit. E. M. WHITING'.
STATE OP SOOTH CAROLINA, CHARLESTON COUNTY.
Personally appeared John Detghan, who arter
being duly sworn, deposes and says that within
the week last past, one John Carsten did.in conver?
sation with deponent, say that-.he (Carsten) could
get E. L. Roche to resign or withdraw from the
nomination or county coroner Tor a consideration,
and that he (Caieten) did not care whether Scott
or carpenter was elected; all that he wanted was
to make money.
Deponent further states, that npon represent?
ing the above facts to E. M. Whiting, Mr. Whiting
repudiated the Insult of offering money to Mr.
Roche as a consideration; or his (Mr. Roche's) with?

To the Public.
Having boen Informed that a statement ls
current to the effect that I have declared that, if
elected to Congress, I will advocate only the
rights of the black race, I hereby brand lt ae
false and malicious. I have said, and do now
say, that I am a Republican, and that if elected
to Congress I shall stand by my race whenever
any of their vested rights and privileges are as?
sailed, but that I shall deem myself the represen?
tative or the whole people, In all questions or gov?
ernmental policy Involving their common tights
and the interests or my native State. 1 shall wel?
come the support or all who are willing to sus tain
me on this declaration or principles. Born and
raised in South Carolina, and bound to her soil
by every tie of kindred dear to man, I have never
betrayed, and shall never betray, any public trust
reposed In me by the native or adopted citizens;
and IT I have not succeeded in securing their
good ?pinion, I have at least faithfully endeavor?
ed to deserve lt, and sincerely believe that I have
as great a claim (at least) upon their support as
my opponent Very respectfully,

duration, and although continually suffering the
most intense pain, her great fortitude and sub?
