-The Peck bargain and corruption divorce suit
in New York is now a sensation In that sensation
lovta? city. The incidents or this case are re?
markable, and ir trae give us the spoctacte of the
most contemptible characters fl gm lng m a way
that would shame the worst schools of Acion,
which refuse to produce a novel without relieving
lt by at least one virtuous and honest character.
The Peck divorce suit gives us thc following incl?
ients: "A scheming mother-in-law, offended at
her daughter-in-law, offers a son $30,000 to di?
vorce his wife. The son. a paper collar manufac?
turer, who seems worthy of such a mother, con?
sents. The wife, deservedly bound to such a hus?
band, secretly agrees to the separation on the
faith of his promiso to marry her again as soon
as the mother has been robbed of her $30,000. A
rascally bookkeeper, worthy of Buch a master, j
swears to the commission of adultery with the I
wife, and the divorce ls granted. Very naturally
auch a husband refuses to re-marry sach a wire,
and quite naturally tc* wife gees into court, ex
poses the conspiracy, and makes humanicy blush
at Its baseness."
-The story of the capture or Orleans reads like
a page from the history of the Crusades. The
French, destitute of artillery and fearfully out?
numbered, were forced to defend the city by in?
dividual b'avery, and made the victory a dear
one fer the Germans. Daring the night befere
tho assault, little "snake parties" were organized
to creep out through the long grass and meet the
Prnsslons crawling In. And every now and then
the silence was broken by a sharp, hissing cry AB
snake met snake in the underwood, and the
stings, In the shape or the long hunting-knives
carried on these expeditions, went to work. Next
day. lt being evident that the town must rall, lt
was d elded to save tho bulk or the army by re?
treat, while the Foreign Legion and the Pontifical
Zouaves engaged the Prussians and covered the
retreat. And nobly they did lt. The Prussian artil?
lery rained missiles of death upon them, till they
Judged them broken, and then assaulted en
masse, only to be driven back In ruin. Four
times did they meet repulse, but on the fifth as?
sault not a shot was fired against their heavy
masses as they deployed In the open, but as they
swarmed lr to Bauten and Into the raliway station
about a hundred and fifty ghastly creatures In the
rall tar y garb rose up to meet them In the longed
for embrace or death. Orleans was won. But of
these iso men not 60 escaped to tell the tale of
how lt was defended. Of 1500 or the Foreign
Legion 36 came back to Blois, and or 370 Zouaves,
but 17 left the field alive.

The Leopard and the Kid.
Governor Scott is fast developing a vein
of turnor which promises to throw his clas?
sical allusions into the shade. A genial
glow relaxes his tense muscles, and a stead?
fast contemplation of his official majority dis?
poses him to be at peace with the good peo?
ple of South Carolina and "all the rest of
"mankind." Should not bygones be by?
gones? Only a few days ago Governor
Scott denounced the mild Reformera as tur?
bulent Bebels, and suggested that a body of
armed men were harrying tho innocent Re?
publicans, who cultivate peanuts and party
politics in the upper part of the State.
Treasurer Parker and Auditor Tomlinson
swelled the chorus of patriotic remonstrance.
"Our smoky Caesar" nodded his august
head, and promised an indefinite amount of
heavy infantry and light artillery. A
shadowy Colonel Baker flitted across the
stage, prating of "many more murders" and
all the other sanguinary nightmares of a
dyspeptic imagination- Thi3 is done with
now, and Governor : Scott, rippling with
solemn smile, proclaims a. day of "public
"thanksgiving" for the 'manifold blessings"
with which the year is crowned.
On bended knee the twice-elected Gover?
nor may return "fervent thanks" for what ia
to uj, at best, "a blessing in disguise." We
wonder, however, whether he remembers
.trie speeches of Joe CrewBtfcOo., when he
proclaims that "political bitterness has been
"ameliorated;" and whether he has forgotten
the Winchester rifle speech, and the anning
of the colored militia, when he declares that
"public tranquillity has been greatly im?
proved." In all soberness, nevertheless, we
have roach for which to be thankful. The
health of the State has been remarkably
good. The earth has given forth abundant
fruit, and the whole State is anxious to pre?
serve peace and increase the prosperity of
the people. For this we may sincerely and
devoutly thank a Beneficent Providence; for
thin ?o ui?y conliuuc LO labor-Lt mm de?
ferred hope, at least without despair.
But Governor Scott will be satisfied with
nothing less than the immediate coming of a
' moral and political millennium, when "the
$wclf shall dwell with the lamb" (as during
the past four years?) and when "the leopard
"(who shall first .change his spots?) shall
"lie down with the .'kid." Which ?3 the
wolf and which is the lamb; which is the
leopard and which is the kid, Govern?
or Scott, does not condescend to explain.
Bnt be bas given Joe Crews the cold
shoulder, and is said to have promised
that the rioters in the up-country shall be
disposed of by the civil tribunals. These
two crumbs of comfort be follows up with
a "peace proclamation," aboutiding fn text
and metaphor. And this time, perchance,
he is not poking fun at the people of the
State. ? _
A good deal bas been said during the past
few years about the policy of wharf manage?
ment in Charleston, and it has been con?
tended that wharfage rates should be prac?
tically abolished, in the face of the fact
that ancient Boston, and even Baltimore,
maintained their wharves by a trifling tax
on merchandise and produce passing over
them. New York was held up as a pattern
of excellence, because no wharfage charges
were made there on goods. This policy has
brought the piers of New York to such a
wretched condition, that the great com?
merce of that port is seriously hampered,
except on piers owned by steamship compa?
nies, and which, at great C03t, have been im?
proved by these private corporations. It has,
therefore, been found necessary at New York
to change the past policy as to wharves and
the old-fashioned p'an of Boston and Charles?
ton is to be adopted, as will be seen from
the following official report published in the
New York Journal of Commerce:
THE IMPROVEMENT OF THE WATER FRONT.
The majority of committee No. 5, of the
Chamber of Commerce, have recommended
the following pian for the improvement of the
water Iront of the city, and it was adopted hy?
the chamber at a special meeting yesterday,
South and -vest streets should be made a
width of about ono hundred and thirty (130)
feet for Sottlh street, uud about one hundred
anti filly (150) feet for West street. Along the
water front u substantial bulkhead ol masonry
should be built, from which wharves at least
sixty (60) feet wide should be extended into
the river to the exterior harbor line, and, as
far as practicable, the wharves should be
placed at the loot of each street. The slips
Oetween these wharves should vary iu width,
In the clear, from about two hundred feet to
about two hundred awl twenty feet, i he foun?
dation of the wharves should be large hollow
iron columns, to be filled In with solid mason?
ry laid in cement, (uuless it should be consid?
ered belter at an increased cost to substitute
stone piers and arches,) with sufficient space
between these columns to leave free passage
for the currents and for the tides.
Upon these wharves should be built, when?
ever the demands of trade require, warehouses
of brick, stone or iron, three- or lour stories
high. The first floor should be open and free
from all obstructions, except stairs and the
columns which would support the other floors.
These warehouses should be of suitable width
and size, and extend over the whole length of
the wharves. Iron gates should be placed at
the front of each wharf, and could be closed
except during acilve business. Along tho.
bulkheads, beficeen the wharves, iron sheds,
open at all sides, aoout twenty-floe feet icide and
about twenty feet high at the peak of the roof,
might be very serviceable In giving merchan?
dise temporary protection from the weather.
* * * **-*??
The construction of the wharves and ware?
houses should be by individuals and companies
In conformity with the plans that shalt be
adopted by the commissioners, and these In?
dividuals or companies should be allowed to
retain or to acquire one or more warehouses
in fee or on lease, subject to such reasonable
restrictions and regulations ot the commission?
ers as will conduce to the public good.
For the carrying out of the above improve?
ments we have to suggest the following plan,
namely : Fix upon the above as the kind of
wharves to be built; then fix upon a rate of
wharfage on ships, and on all goods shipped
and discharged from the wharves; then pro?
cure the pi- sage ol an act of the Legislature
authorizing the above improvement and the
rates of wharfage, dividing the river front Into
sections of convenient size, Inviting compa?
nies to organize under the act In such manner
as may be deemed Bate In the Interest ot the
city; let these become the owners of the prop?
erty by purchase, at a price Axed by a board of
commissioners appointed for the purpose. All
present owners to have the right of mergln?
their property in the stock of the company.
Now, in our judgment, these Improvements
can be made better, cheaper, and more expe?
ditiously by this plan, than in any other way.
The improvements should be made under the
supervision of the dock commissioners.
With respect to designating where the dif?
ferent kinds of business shall be located, tor
very many reasons, too numerous to specify,
some of which must be obvious to every one
who gives the subject any thought, lt ls much
better to leave this localization lree to adjust
Itself. We would remark, however, that we
consider lt very desirable that trade should be
localized, and that there are many good rea?
sons why the business coming from the East
should be confined as far as possible to the
East River, and that coming from the North
and West to the Hudson River.

Snow, W. H. Webb, L. B. Lyman, Paul N.
Spofford, Wm. H. Galon. E. P. Fabbri, Jas. H.

?Another Outrage In Union."
The TJnionville limes shows that there
are four palpable falsehoods in the Radical
account of "another outrage in Union." A
number o? "indiscreet men and boys" were
boisterous, and said some "very naughty
"things" about the constables, but the out?
raged person was not fired at, and there
was no disturbance whatever. Perhaps,
after all, if would be well to turn over these
.indiscreet men and boya" to the care of
the school commission. Their idle words
enable the Radical papers and Radical poli?
ticians to make mountains out of mole-hills,
and give to these people an importance
which they can never obtain while they are
treated with serene contempt. The School
Commissioner of Union County can already
spell words of three syllables, and the "in?
discreet men and boys," in sobering them?
selves, might finish the commissioner's edu?
cation. _ _
THREE Radical county commissioners
were elected in Union on the 19th ultimo.
One of the three can actually read and
write. Glory !

The object of the Company is to relieve itself
from the pressure of debt, so that its service to

ed, J "he members of the Company give their
services, which are not free from risk, very
cordially, and they make liberal contributions
themselves; but they cannot sustain the burden
that ls upon them In the purchase of their Steam

aid from those who derive the whole benefit of
The Marlon Fire Company therefore appeal to
the citizens to give them liberal aid in the pur?
chase of Tickets, and in the countenance and
support of their present enterprise.
