At a meeting of the Hibernian Society, held

We are called upon to mourn the untimely end
of a young, gifted and enterprising member of |
our society. The sod Is hardly dry, nor are the
rosebuds yet crushed by autumn's winds, which
mark and adorn the resting-place of William E.
Mlkell. He was by nature frank, generous and
confiding, and these elements, indigenous to
Irishmen, all nations and all people-especially
the American-know how to value ami appre?
ciate. He brought to the support or a character
bold and unflinching, talents adventurous and
enterprising. He contributed eminently to the
intelligence and usefulness of ocr State Assembly
In that remarkable transition period between 1865
and 18C7, when our State was at the mercy of the
caprice of the dominant party at Washington;
and by the combination of force of character
with aspiring Intelligence, he gave confidence
and support to his associates In their edom to
secure a well regulated, permanent and accepta?
ble government to the people or South Carolina.
As a lawyer and citizen, the full meal or praise
has already been best owed upon him by those
nearer and dearer in the avocations or ure. To
us it is permitted to mingle our special grier with
the common sorrow over the departure or a
valued and true friend. Though not born an
Irishman, he had all the emotions and instincts
of an Irishman. This was manifested by his uni?
form sympathy with us, and his regular and con?
stant attendance at our gatherings. Every object
of charity within the scope of our beneficence he
sought to advocate and promote, and spread
around these higher duties the charm of a free
and delightful social intercourse.
Let us remember bis genial warmth and loving
kindness, his Southern ardor kindling at the reci?
tation of Ireland's wrongs; his deep sympathy hi
all that we conceived worthy to do or to perform;
and bid fair peace to his sable shroud, and so hail
and farewell I

Arranging the Terms-Surrender of the
Army-Bazaine'? Intrigue?-Cause of
High Prices-The Death List-Opposi?
tion to the Capitulation-Bazaine
mobbed by Women.
The special correspondent ot the New York
Tribune telegraphs the following graphic account
of the scenes preceding and following the surren?
der of Metz :
THB PRELIMINARY CONFERENCE.
At noon on the 28th Bazaine sent the Prince an
autograph leter asking another conference: and
accordingly the Germans sent General Stiehle.
chief of staff of the Second Army, and Count
Wartensleben, chief of statTof the First Army, to
Frascatl once more. The Interview lasted three
hours of the afternoon. At first it was stormy on
the part of the French commissioners; but lt re?
sulted In their conversion ta the maui points of
the German terms. The first difficulty was con?
cerning officers keeping their side-arms, on
which Bazaine insisted. The point was finally re?
ferred to the King, and conceded by him in a dis?
patch received at three o'clock on the morning of
TERMS OF SURRENDER.
By agreement the conference was resumed ear?
ly the same morning; and lasted till 8 P. M., when
the capitulation was signed for the absolute ren?
dition of Metz and all its fortifications, arma?
ments, stores and munitions; and for the surren?
der on tue conditions of the capitulation of Sedan,
of all the garrison and all Bazaine?? army com?
prising three marshals of France, sixty-six gene?
rals, 6000 officers and 173,000 troop3 The Germans
are astounded at this result-an army and fortress
capitulating to an Investing army only a fraction
larger than Itself. rt .
The French commissioners were Bazalne's chief
of staff, General Jarnai. Colonel Fay and Major
Samuele on the patt of the commander of the
fortress. On the 28th, Major Landkuhl, etiler of
engineers of the Second Corps, was to enter by
t tlputation at io o'clock to withdraw the mines
from under the forts, preparatory to the safe en?
try or che Seventh corps, who will remain to
guard the city and prisoners, while the rest or
the First Army departs immediately for Paris and
lor the South, where the headquarters of Prince
Frederick Charles will be at Lyons. At l o'clock
the French army were to lay down their arm
Alt this has been postponed twenty-four hours, in
consequence of a want of readiness orr the part
or the French authorities, owing to Internal dis?
THE ARMY LAYS DOWN ITS ARMS.
On the 29th the forts were taken possession or
by the artillery or the Seventh Corps. At 1 o'clock
the Third Division (which will depart toward the
southwest} and the Fourth Division were review?
ed In splendid pageant by the Prince, on the
Nancy-Metz road, nearTour-le-Brede. Tnereupon
the iPrench) im penal Guards marched ont or Metz,
hearing their arms, which they subsequently laid
down at Frascatl, and pas-e l In review befare
the Prince. This honor waa accorded to them
alone. All the rest laid down their arms in the
Metz arsenals, and then marched to their canton?
ment outside the town, to await transportation.
Tne Imperial Guards were received by the Prus?
sian troop3 with respect: not a Jeering syllable
was heard, nor an Improperly exultant look seen.
Previously, at the Priuce's review of the German
troops, the cheering was loud and long con?
At 4 P. M. the French companies that were still
mounting guard at the various gates or the city
and at the depots and arsenals were relieve! by
Prussians, two-regiments ol infantry and one of
cavalry having entered the town. The appointed
military Governor-General, Von Zastrow, the
commander ol the Seventh Corps, took possession
and control or the ch y and toitres->, where, he
tells me, he expects to find the portrait or his an?
cestors who was at some early period also a mili?
tary Governor or Metz. .
The tragedy was completed, but there ls-another
side to tne story which st in remains to be re?
viewed. According to the statement ol General
Von Zastrow, who hetd the woodB or Vaux on the
morning of August 19, (after the battle of Grave?
lotte,' Bazaine contd have avoided being Inclosed
in Metz. After he was thns Inclosed, he could
have, according to Metzlau statement, made
a sortie and joined McMahon more eas?
ily by far than McMahon could reach
him. After most of Bazalne's cavalry and
artillery horses bad been eaten, this pro?
ceeding was or conree more difficult, still bis
movements are said to have lacked determination,
ind. m the last two sorties, to have been even
Frivolous. This ls charged to a plot In behalf or
:he' Regency by which this army was to try to
remain In statu quo until the conclusion or the
war In Western France, and then was to become
available, with Prussian cousent, for Bonapartlst
purposes. Bazaine himself expected In that case
to be tbe Governor of the Prince Imperial, and
the virtual Regent.
Nearly all the Metzlans seem to believe tbis, and
their most influential people haVe avowed such
belief to me. Since the time or the investment,
Bazaine bas never been seen In the camps except
on extraordinary occasions; never at all in the
ambulances which are in part constructed lu
numerous railway box-wagons on the Place
Royale. Equally seldom has be been seen In the
city. The civil authorities bad to find him at the
Barrier St. Martin. He did not appear at thc City
Hall once. He rarely, lt ever, said a word to en?
courage his troops. Canrobert sometimes cheered
their hardships a little, and then they would cry,
"ViveCanrobert I A bas Bazaine!"
BAZAINE FEARED HIS OWN" MEN.
Toward the last he dared not show himself to
his own men for rear or assassination, and thc
terribly relaxed discipline li assuredly the cause
or the hasty capitulation, when a week's rations
for all were on hand. On the morning or the 29th
five soldiers lay dead or starvation at Montfgny,
while the stn ir still indulged lu luxurious meals.
Four days' rations were given to the em ire army
that morning (29th.) but tor two days previous
they brui received none. No beer nor pork had
been obtainable at any price for a week; but on
that morning, before anything had arrived in
town, the shops had plenty thereof, which goes to
prove the charges current In the town that spe?
culators had seized a quantity or rood, and that a
rational system or apportionment, such m exist?
ed during the last ten days, ir lutrodoced at first,
and combined with requisitions, would have pre?
vented mach waste, and enabled the ron ress to
hold out a month longer.
HIGH PRICE OF PROVISIONS.
The starr used ar first to feed their horses on
bread. Recently, prices had leached the follow?
ing maximum: Sugar, $6 a pound; salt, $3 a
pound; one ham, $60; one potato, 9 cents; one
onion, 12 cents. A Utile pig; caught near Grave?
lotte, sold for $150. During five weeks, amputa?
tions have been performed without chloroform or
ether, and wounds dressed without carbolic acid.
DISEASE AND DEATH.
There are more than 19.000 elck and wounded.
During the alec c 35.000 persons have died lu the
town alone, the greater part from lack or proper
care. The prevailing diseases are varlolold, spot?
ted typhus and dysentery. Scurvy has not pre?
vailed, though even the slek have, for over three
weeks, received their horse steaks and horse
broth without salt. The reported discovery of a
saline spring at St. Julien was a hoax, contrived
by pnttlng salt into thu spring, to encourage the
GENERAL OPPOSITION TO THE SURRENDER.
When the capitulation became known, the people
were fu ious. The National Guards refused to lay
down their arms. On the afternoon of the 28th
iuBtant, a captain or dragoons appeared at tbe
head or a boody or troops who swore that they
would sooner die than yield. Albert Colllngnon,
the editor or an ultra Democratic daily newspa?
per, the Journal de Metz, rode about on a white
horse firing a pistol and exhorting them to sally
rorth and seek victory or death to escape impend?
ing shame. He was rollowed by a lady Binging
the Marseillaise. This produced terrible excite?
ment. The doora of the Cathedral were bust open
and the tocsin was sounded and the bell rung
nearly all night.
When General Cofflnieres appeared to pacify
them, three pistol-shots were fired at him. Finally,
by the aid of two regiments of the Une, he quietly
dispersed the mob; hut all night the sounds of
grief, Indignation and terror com inued. Respect?
able women ran about the streets tearing their
hair and flinging their bonnets and laces under
their reet, seeking th' lr friends, and asking wild?
ly, "What witt become of our children?" Soldiers,
drunk and sober, tumbled hither ani thither In
irregular groups, with their caps orr and their
sabres broken, sobbing and weeping like children
and crying. "Cit pawore Metz; Oh ma vauere
Metz: Tout est perdu
Yesterday I wa* closeted with the Mayor ami
the City Cou tell daring two hours, wall? liiey de?
tained me as the tlr-t stranger tha?. h;.d entered
the town,, to ask all manner of questions-some
chi dish In their uncertainty and error-as to
what the Prussians would do; how they would do
lt, and how they must be met. lt was as ir they
had never peen or knuwn a Prussian. They de?
manded to know whether their already destitute
larders must still supply the troops and whether
they would be personally maltreated ir unable to
furnish what was required. They were relieved
by hearing that a thousand wagons were ready at
Comedies to tiring provisions hither, and also
that, there are fonds in London ready to be ap?
plied to their relief, In response to the appeal or
the mayors or Brley and other commanes, pub?
lished lu English and American journals, saying :
"Help ls needed qnlckly."
GERMAN SOLDIERS OIVE THEIR RATIONS TO THE
' , FRENCH.
The entire-besieging army voluntarily gave np
their bread rations yesterday to feed their French
captives. This deeply touched the Metzlans, and
did much to relieve their fears. At noon a Pros
elan raliway inspector made the trip by rall from
Ars to Union Station, Bltnated a n$Ie sontb of
Metz, and to day perfect communication by rall
exista between Saarbr?cken, Metz and Nancy.
The roa'i was little injured.
But few German prisoners were found in Metz :
the French had not kept those they had taken
when they were in a condition to oe returned.
On leaving Metz*, last night. I noticed on the
faces of all the German sold lers a look of qnlet
satisfaction-nothing more. Not one of the
French officers and soldiers who swarmed all
about, even when intoxicated-which was sur?
prisingly unfreqnent^-wore any other expression
than a look of sadness or defiance, the latter not
being common add occurring chiefly among the
I am informru that the French loss in killed- ia
the various affairs since'August 18, added to the
deaths fro <i sickness In the town, were 42,000.
Bazaine himself declined the Prince's generous'
proposal to let all the i roops lay down their arms
outside of the works in view of their conquerors,
instead of laying them down In the arsenal, say?
ing that he could not guarantee their behavior.
The Imperial Guards alone -had preserved disci?
pline sufficiently to be trusted to pass In armed
review. The inhabitants had never ceased,, to
hope for the appearance of Bourbaki^ army from
Lille, or of the army of the Loire, or of some
other, relieving force; but the'troops themselves,
during the last few weeks, could no longer he de?
ed ved, as they got better Information .through
the German outposts. . ,
Their 'demoralization, due largely to hunger,
waa bitterly and openly complained of by their
officers'. ; At 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon Bazaine
passed through Ars, on his .way to Wiihelmshohe,
In a closed carriage, marked with his name, es?
corted by several officers of bis'Staff on horse?
BAZAINE ASSAILED BY WOMEN.
The women of the village hod heard of his com?
ing, and awaited him with erle, or "traitor I"
"thler!"' "coward!" "loafer!'' "brigandl" "Where
are our husbands whom you have, betrayed "'
"Give us back our children wnqm you have sold!"
They attacked thc carriage, and broke the win?
dows, and would have ly nched trie marshal but for
the Intervention of Prussian gendarmes. Three
days ago, when I sent the first news of tue capitu?
lation, "I told everybody on my, way of j the
astounding reality, faint rumors bl which they
had heard during so many weeks past The Ger?
man officers at detached outpoints hugged me
bodily, much against my will, as J waa m haste;
while the French people nttered maledictions on '.
"those brigands." Many still refuse to believe in
the surrender, being convinced that Metz had ten,
Alteen dr twenty years' provisions yet. The civil?
ians' rations In Melz-wolca were" too ample, as
many proved by what they had left-were thirteen
ounces of bread dally. The troops had half as
much bread, and at first twenty-four ounces pf
horseflesh. ? t
The French declare that now France has-no
hope but Parla, and their faith In Paris ls less than
it was in Metz. But there are earnest people who

morning, an- affidavit was made by one N. A.
Quinn, a etty detective, that he was informed by a
Mr. Bntiz that I wanted him (Bnttz) to tamper
with a ballot-box, and that he had refused to do
so, and had, therefore... resigned os a manager.
Mr. Butts being sent for and examined by the
district aitorney In his office, immediately after
the affidavit was made, denied having made any
Nevertheless a warrant wai issued, on this
flimsy pretext, for my arrest; and notwithstand?
ing I wat at my office all day, and in the United
States commissioner's office at 9 o'clock In the
evening, long after the affidavit was made and
the warrant drawn, yet ll o'clock at night was
the hour selected lor my arrest by the pliant
tools of C. C. Bowen, at the United States Court?
house, an hour at which lt was presumed I could
not procure the exorbitant bail ($io,ooo) demand
ed for my appearance at 9 o'clock the next mo i n
lng. I was arrested not at ibe Hibernian Hall,
aa stated, but at (the United States Courthouse, In
the commissioner's office, where I waa for the
purpose of giving bail for a friend who had been
On appearing, I was discharged by the United
States commissioner, upon the evidence of the
prosecution alone, the district attorney having
stated that lt was never designed that I ahould
be arraigned upon that affidavit, It having been
taken for some other pnrposp. The manager,
whom lt was alleged I endeavored to corrupt,
swore positively that I never attempted, in any
manner whatever, "by words or signs," to in?
duce him to tamper with the ballot-box, and de?
nied that he had ever told Quinn so. This man
Quinn will be required, at the next session of
court, to answer for this shameless perjury. This
whole proceeding, like others of the same kind,
was impelled by the malice of those who arc seek?
ing to gain their base ends by oppressing citizens
nnder the forms of law. E. W. M. MACEEY.

AN INFAMOUS OUTRAGE.
The Working of the Scott Leaven.
[From the Sumter News.]
We learn that on Wednesday night of last
week, a respectable and inoffensive citizen of this
couuty, named Benton, was taken out from his
hou-e by a gang of negroes and whipped until he
could scarcely stand. Their pretext was to force
bim to tell something about the Ku-Kiux. Know?
ing nothing, he could tell nothing about them. It
ls said that the gang were Instigated by white
men. If so, we hope the Instigators will meet
with the speedy and summary punishment wkicn
they so well deserve, lt is high time that auch as
incite an Ignorant, savage, thoughtless and cruel
mob to acts of that kind, while they themselves
remain bell ind in a place o. safety, should be made
an example of.
P. S.-Since the above was written, wc have
learned further particulars. The affair occurred
lu Lower Salem. A negro, in the night, broke
lnto a house occupied by two white glrlf and en?
tered the chamber in which they slept. Fortu?
nately they escaped the villain aud fled. He was
Identified, however, and, as it ls reported, his
place of abode visited by parties unknown, in
search of him. But he had concealed himself
somewhere else. Thereupon Mr. Benton, who
lived In that neighborhood, was visited and horri?
bly treated by ibe gang of negroes, as we have
stated abovi. It ls said that the negroes were
undisguised, but were led by a white man In dis?
guise, who was recognized, ir tbLs be so, be
ought, m our opinion, to receive the same punish?
ment as the reloua who attempted to commit the
rape. Tiere ls very great excitemeat, or course,
in that neighborhood.

AN AUTUMN SUGGESTION.
Now, as heavy logs' arise and searching winds
commence to blow; now,' as the human body,
exhausted like, inanimate nature by the heats o?
summer, begin to wilt and droop; now, ere the
Inclement winter makes its trying onset; now is
the time for a preparatory course of the best ac?

Fever and Ague ls rampant in all parts of the
country. Quinine, the physicians admit, will not
quell the phase of the disease which at the pr?s?
ent pervades the entire West. It ls well that lt is
so, for the remedy (so-called) ls deadlier than
the malady. But If quinine ls inefficient in, inter?
mittent fevers, Hosteller's Bitters ls irresistible.
It would be safe to ounce, a contract, mader heavy
penalties, that any given 4lFever-and Ague Dis?
trict" should be exempted from the disorder for
any particular time, provided every inhabitant
would take the Bitters acco r d in g to dlr ec t ion B, d ui
mg the term of the contract. There has never been .
an Instance In which this sterling invigorant andi
anti-febrile m edie m e has failed to ward off the
complaint, when taken, duly aa a protection
against malaria. Hundreds of physicians have
abandoned ali the officinal sp?cules and now pre?
scribe this harmless vegetable tonic, and nothing
else, as a preventive and cure for all the forms of
cb ins and fever. Vigor ls the thing most needful'
in these cases, as well as In dyspepsia (ind nef.

safest, surest, and most wholesome strengthening
