COLUMBIA, October 21.
. "*L?nrens will giveforty majority for Scott, but
st least eiohi hun^rfl fraudulent votes were cast
by boys aad repeaters.
The day of election in Laurens passed off quiet?
ly enough, but a row occurred on Thursday, after
the United States troops had left the place. It |
seems that the constables tried to arrest a Ten
nesseean named Johnson, wt o resisted the arrest.
This caused a fight.
A messenger wu o brings the news to Governor
Scott says that five white 'inca and, three negroes
were soiled. The-white mear are named Tyler,
Lowry, Frost, Leahy and K&ihoe. Several or the
persons reported killed, if not all of them, were
constables. Rumor says that Joe Crews was snot
in the leg, but escaped into the woods. A man
named Powell was wounded, and ls supposed to
have been killed.
The Governor ls trying to get the United states
soldiers to return to Laurens. If they cannot do
so, the Governor will send op the white militia
The negro militia aie assembling to-night at
Tae Governor has telegraphed to the Secretary
of War, and to General ferry, for troops. There |
is intense excitement here.
~ Last night, & Reform n?gro, living ten miles
from Columbia, was burnt out by the Radicals.
Iiis house with his crop in it was burned, and his
f?rfTily barely escaped with their lives.
United States Commissioner Janney issued to?
day five warrants for fraudulent voting ia Co?
lombia, also one yesterday. The accused are all
negroes. Fifty-three other case3 are ready Tor
him, and 'many others will be found to-night.
In Spartan burg the total vote was 3500, of
which 2250 are Reform-giving a Reform majority
of twelve hundred ana. fifty. COSJXIR.
ELECTION FACTS AND- HUMORS.
The feeling in the city yesterday was decid?
edly more cheerful. It dawned upon the people j
that what had been gained by the Reform move?
ment could have been won in no other way, and
that, whether we elected the State ticket or not,
the back of Radicalism was broken. With from
forty to fifty Reformers In the lower House of the
General Assembly, and with eleven Reformers 1n
-.he Senate, Scott and his Ring can be so muzz'ed
that they wUl not steal any more. Besides this,
we have made the first step in educating politi?
cally the colored voters of the State, who, up to
this time, had beea guided by" their passions
rather than their reason. What we need now ls
toi hold the people together, to maintain onr or?
ganization, to show a bold front to thc enemy
wherever we find him. This will enable the Re?
formers to use their strength to the .best por?
no?" and to seize every opportunity of reform?
ing, In aczM 'ti tn RS as well as large, the govern?
ment of the Stat*.
Onr own estimate of the result of the elections
will be rfound in another place, but it ls proper to
say here that the Radicals claim the State by
about 20,000 majority.
MR. TIM H ORLE V'S ESTIMATE.
Hr. Timothy Hurley's estimate ls as follows:
Radical majority In the State. 15,000; In Charles?
ton County, 7000; General Butler several thous?
and ahead of his ticket.
Taking into account the large majority of the
Reformers in Charleston City, and the vote cast
in the parishes for the DeLarge ticket, this --ounty
can hardly give the Radical State ticket more
than 3000 majority. The county ticket ls still in
doubt, and many or cur friends claim that the
split between DeLarge and Bowen bas elected the |
Reform candidates for the Legislature.
HURLEY'S MAME TYRE.
At the Hurley Convention, in the Bowen inter?
est, the Mackeys declared their adhesion to the
regular ticket, and there was a general restora?
tion or confidence. Mr. A. M. Mackey was pnt
apon the ticket as school commissioner, and
peace reigned supreme. A little later, however,
the Bowenltes came to the conclusion that the
Mackeys were nos playing fair, and Timothy
Hurley was pat to lt to circumvent them. A
second edition of the regnUr Bowen ticket was
got ont for use in the conn ty outside of the city.
Upon this ticket, the following substitutes were
made : For the Legislature, Reuben Tomltnson
Instead of O. R. Levy; for county commissioner,
-Reed Instead of F. C. Miller; for school
commissioner, M. Emory Instead of A. M. Mackey ;
tor coroner, E. M. Whiting instead of A. R. Tare.
This ticket was glvea ?ut as thc regular ticket,
and the*Bowenltes assert that Messrs. Tomlin -
son, Emory, Reed and Whiting, with the rest of |
the Bowen ticket, are undoubtedly elected.
- poa COXOSBSS. .
The reports of the result of the contest between
Bowen- abd DeLsrge are very conflicting. Both
Bid?3 claim the victory, li is considered certain
that DeLarge has made a strong run, but tiowen
is thought to have the better chance ol coming
oat ahead in the official count.
These Interesting repositories, big with the
fate or the Charleston Reformers, are piled np 1n
the Circuit Court-room. The guard He about in I (
the jury boxes, and make themselves uncomfort-11
able as ocst they can. The detail tor yesterday
and to-day ls as follow*: From 12 M. to 8 P. M.,
on Krlday, A. 8. J. Perry and B. P. Frost, Reform
Ars, and Robert Mears and Robert Hamilton, Radi
cals. From8P. M., Friday, tot A. M., to-day, J.
T. Kanapanx and L. C. Nowell, Reformers, and
John Ancrum and George Holmes, Radicals.
From 4 A. M. to 12 M. today, H. B. Olney, Re?
former, and Aaron McCoy, Radical.
The United States commissioner issnei
warrants yesterday for tba arrest or the
following persons: Isaac Moultrie, fir voting
twice; R. A Weasy, for Intimidating voters. John
Holloway, Tko was arrested on Thursday for per
jory, gave bail to appear before the January term
of too Calved State* Court.
The sailors of the brig Concord, who were ar?
rested tm Thursday, were remanded for further
A warrant was also, issned for the arrest or a
person who, lt is alleged, discharged an employee
for voting the Republican ticket.

BIGGIN CHURCH. .
The last Radical statement In regard to the row
at Biggin Chnrch, attributes the a i ra cul ty to
two followers of DeLarge, who threatened to
she ot any man who would vote for Bowen, and
who prevented a good many from doing so.
Hearing of this at Strawberry, a crowd went over |
from that place to Biggin Chnrch to remedy thc
evil. Upon their arrival, the two leading intimi?
dator decamped, in very undignified style, along
with the managers, and the mob taking posses?
sion of the ballot-boxes, they have not since been
heard from. We learned from the managers, yes?
terday morning, that one Wm. Rlstlg was at the
head of this mob, who were all armed. Proper
steps have been taken by the United States mar?
shall to bring these rioters to Justice.
The bu from this precinct came in yesterday
morning, and we learn from the managers that
the report of a disturbance there ls Incorrect.
The voting went on quietly and orderly-the
Radicals enjoying the situation and having it,
pretty much their own way.
PCLTZ'S OLD FIELD.
At this place the majority for Reform was very
decided, but, unfortunately, too small to effect
mach. There wrns no harry in voting; nor the
slightest disorder during the day.
The returns from Gregg's Farm came In by a
small beat to the city, at 4 P. M. yesterday. The
kook was kept bi a insaner becoming the Intelli?
gent appointees ot Governor Scott, and the In?
jonction of the constitution was strictly carried
out as to there being no distinction of color.
Owing to this want of distinction we were obliged
to estimate the white vote with the aid of outside
Information. From the same source we learn
that, as oniy three colore! men voted Reform,
the election went off in a very quiet manner.
8T. THOU AS.
From New Hope Church the box arrived duly
sealed, and with lt the cheering news of 32 ont of
the 38 votes polled being for Reform. As at Foltz 'a
the numbers are small, but we shonld be more
than content If these "straws showed how the
wind blew." In the whole parish the total nam
ber of votes Ls about 900. The total number of
v..tes polled is about 493, of whloh, about 40 were
Reform. Thc elections were quiet and orderly.
In the late election 303 votera who had been
daly naturalized before Judge Pringle, in the
City Court, were objected to because they had not
taken out their papers In the United States Cou rt.
This ls the first election at which any objection
of the kind has been made, and as none was
raised or even hinted while the papers were bel?g
prepared and Issued by the City Court, lt took all
by surprise, and deprived hundreds of respecta
ble voters of their legal rights. A word ot eau
tlou would have sent them to the other court, but
there was no one to speak lt, and the votes were
lost to the Reform party. As lt ls a mat'er of
some consequence to 'be 300, we hope steps will
be taken to test the question whether the City
Court is authorized to Issue naturalization pa

Neut EIGHT HILE PUMP, Oct. 21. j
Arms and the men, I slug. Not arms and the
man, as Virgil says, but arms au4 the men. The
arms were what would be called In poetic-polltl
cal, or politic-poetical parlance, Winchester rifles,
bat I would .lescrioe them as muskets which
Noah may have nsed and not admired. The men
were the descendants of Noah's second son, and
followers of Scott.
In compliance with the advice given by THE
NEWS, your correspondent, ou Wednesday last,
remained In the city to vote early, but the early
voting there resulted In a late arrival at the das
nie and romantic spot Known as "The Pump."
Arriving at the Pump at ten o'clock A. M., I
found the polls surrounded by about fifty cf the | 1
colored partisans of Scott, about lifteen oi
twenty of whom were armed with guns, and one
B. ?particularly warlike son. or nain, with an old
cavaliy sabre besides his minuet. In charge or
the poll were a black man and a colore J mm, the
latter a carpenter though not a Carpenter man,
and a Smith thmgh not a t>lack-*initli, ami on the
table were Sooti tickets awi no ithers.
The few gentlemen who represented the Rerorm I f
party, together with one or two friends, had done 11
and were still doing their duty as well as was
possible under the circumstances ; but as soon as
the Reform tickets were exposed to view they ?iad
Deer? swed bu the nwb and destroyed. The tear?
ing up of the Carpenter and limier tickets was
Jone to the tunerul accompaniment of yells, con.
tcmptoas reviling*, and volleys of musketry from
the gun committee. c
Some tickets remained lu tho pockets of the j
whit : m :n sreumt, and Mr. S. W. Relley. the en 1
rlneer on the phosphate work's, whence I send
iron tht?, offered one to a c ilored voter, where
ipoa the hootlngs broke forth arresh, coupled
ivltb threats to take his life should he dare r -peat
the offence. A Bhort time after th" enacting of this
llsgracemi scene, Mr. Theodore Boag arrived on
the groused, and, uudcr his protctlon, a colored J
[Wormer deposited hl? voie, the gallant gunners c
seeming to have an Instinctive knowledge of the b
fact ?hat our goo I friend '"Tozey" is not to be ii
trifled with. Whilst, however, the few white men I
present were ready and willing to protect any c
colored man who desired to cast a vote on the v
side or b meaty and reform, t?ie negroes were In- t
ilrnLUted by the threatening, and. to their minds, ji
warlike attitude of the gnu committee, and jot
correspondent In vain endeavored to inspire the;
with the required amount of nerve. Thus wei
numbers of colored men Intimidated either Int
voting for Scott or not voting at all. If the ele
tlon has been conducted In many localltli
as itt was at the Eight-mile Pump, d
feat ls a foregone conclusion, and the:
needs no ghost to come from the grave to tell t
that we are not yet to be Scott free from the evl
by walch our good old State ls oppressed. Tl
United States Deputy marshal up here-or, i
least, a colored mao who wore the badge of one
sent here to see that things be fairly conducta
compelled the colored voters to open their tlc
et 3, so as to allow the crowd to know whet h i
they were for Scott or not. On being warne
however, to desist, he did so relactantly.
The conn; may be fair, but the election, at leas
so far as this poetic Pump is concerned, was'
swindle and ? fraud of magnificent and gigant
proportions. On the grounds I have above statei
(and I can furnish proof of the correctness of m
report,) we should demand a second'trial, an
should we succeed In getting one, be.prepared I
meei vo'e wt?i vote and gunners with gunners.

The Increase In the area planted In cotton waa

ported as follows : Below an average In condition,
'.Mississippi 0 perceut, average 4; Louisiana 8;
Georgia l; Tennessee 3. Above an average In con?

then, the clements of average planted and the
condition of the crop on the l?t October, th6 na?

equal-would lead us to a comparison with last
year as follows : North Carolina 15 per cent. In?

cent.; Misslsslsslppl 10 per cent.; L misiona 10
per cent.; Texas 30 per cent.; Arkansas :5 per
cent.; Tennessee J ner cent. This would give a
crop exceeding 3,500,000 bales; but the indications
or theseason thus far.the reports since October 1st,
and the probabilities of a ravorable autumn for
maturing and picking the top crop, do not prog?
nosticate a return of the remarkably favorable ex?
perience of the past season. In 1869 discourage?
ments and drawbacks appeared with the plant In
the spring, and gradually disappeared, the season
being ravorable almost beyond precedent,
and the plant exempt from frosts, rains, In?
sects and disease. The present crop was
vigorous In l's early growth, running to
weed rather than to boh: was bumed with
drought in August and flooded with rain In Sep?
tember; has endured vicissitudes unfavorable to
continued rrultrnhiess,.tud causing a general shed?

In ah the cotton States. The opening of tne
later bolls b unusual'y well advanced in
most places, and the last picking promises
to be light. These indications, instead of point?
ing to an Increase of a third of a million bales,
render lt probable that the present crop will be
no larger than the last. And if the remainder of
the season should be very unpropitious, a reduc?
tion or2.0.ooo bales might result. Another month
or two wul determine whether the preseat ero p
shall be limited to 3 000,000 bales, or rise to 3,500,
As predicted early lu the season, the promise
of an average crop upon the present area la cultl
vation has reduced the price to 15 cents a pound,
to the very verge or profitable cultivation, and

planters who grow cotton exclusively and buy all
their agricultural supplies.

THE GOLD AND BOND MARKET.
NEW YORK, October 21.
The chief feature to-day was the decline in
