England, with the approval of tlie Brovlslonal

which 13 advancing from Leraans, along the line
of railway from that city to Chartres, had reached
Dreux, twenty-five miles southwest of Versailles,
when they encountered the Seventeenth Division
of the -German Army. Being outnumbered, the
detachment fell back upon thc mabu body. This
engagement has nothing to do with the army of
the Loire, which, at last advices, had fully com?
pleted the turning of the German right. Tluj Ger?
man force which encountered Gardes Mobiles
near Dreux was marching from St. Germain to
join Von der Tann.

the important preparations which the Germans

1S48. He has no military knowledge, and this
double command is working mischief. The
friends of Bourbaki blame him for remaining In
so doubtful a position. Great activity, neverthe?
less, has been evident in the army of the North
for three days, and there ls good reason
to suppose that a concentration of the
forces of this command ls about to take
place, with the object of marching to the re?
lief of Paris by moving eastward and endeavor?
ing to make a junction witt "he army of the
Loire, between Fontainebleau and Cretel'l. The
National Guards will be left to defend the fortified
towns. It ls reported that the army of the North
numbers 120,000 men, but I can only locate 95,ooo.
Evidence exists everywhere of a secret hope
entertained by the country people that tbe Or?

THE LUNATIC ASYLUM.
Thc management of the State Lunatic Asylum
ls becoming to be a.matter worthy of the atten
tlon of Governor Scott. The Dr. Harris (an 1m
ported mulato) has recently been lemoved fr?m
his position as assistant physician, for which he
was said to ba notoriously Incompetent; but he
has been retained in the offices of he?d attendant
and secretary and treasurer. I have the best cl-1 \
dence that the treatment ortho Inmates ls vastly
harsher than formerly, and that the health of the
male division (especially) is much worse than
heretofore. Dr. Ensor seems to be dollin all that
he can to remedy these grievances, but they can
not be reached unless by the removal of unsuit?
able and Incompetent subordinates. Governor | t
Scott has been ?ppealed to to remedy the matter.
lt is another good case for bim to prove to onr
people that he ls In favor of good government-If
he Is in earnest with his promises' to that effect. I (
lt ls runtier reported that the expense of feeing t

were formerly done for about $400. Why not
have this matter properly and officially exposed ; I ;
and theo the falsity of these damaging rumors, ir
they are false, would appear, and Dr. Harris's |(
character be vindicated; and ir they are true, he
ought to be summarily ejected. The Governor has J1

The greatest excitement that has relieved the

lince the battle with dipper weapons between | J
Dadet J. W. Wilson and (colored) Cadet J. W.
smith, occurred to-day when the news was re?
ceived of the War Department's action on the
verdict of the recently-convened general court -
martial. Had the accused beeu sentenced to be
ed out and shot, public astonishment could
scarcely have been greater. The general ex?
pectation was that lr Smith escaped dismissal
ie be severely reprimanded, aud no one was pre
jared to hear such a decision as has been made,
ttie cadets are almost all indignant and dis
ippoloted. It doe3 not seem that they desire to T
ujure the accused nor glory In his punish- ti
nent; but they a33ert that he has been guilty ol
)rerar.icatlon and inconsistency ; that his eadet
tonor is quillen, an(1 tu-at> "black or white,
is he may be-while * oadet uniform he ls
denuded with the corps and Institution. And
hat now that he is released from all penalty and

0 the gravity of Hie offence against smith's name.
The cadets feel that Smlih has not been Justified,
ind thev, as a body, h*ve been wronged. Thesen
iment against Smith is more unanimously bit?
er and Intense than ever. The previously adopt
!d resolution to taboo any in the corps who ainl
Hted with Smith will be more rigid ly observed
should another collision occur, lt !-< plain that the
result would be more serious than bet?re. Had
ie been reprimanded, and his action declared
milty, the reeling or prejudice would be greatly
<no*lined. With one or two exceptions, the mil?
lers, although they dare not say so, share the
lame feeling with the cadets.

ORTSCHAKOFF TO DARON BKrNNOW, C0MMO?ICAT
ED TO GRANVILLE BY lill CN NOW, NOVEMBER 9.
TZAKSKOE SELO, Oatuber 19.
Baron-The successive alterations which the
ompromlses considered to be the foundation of
he equilibrium of Europe have In these last years
odergoue. have obliged the Imperial Cabinet to
xamine the iutiuencc upon the political position
f Russia resulting therefrom. Among these cona
romlses that which interests us most directly, ls
he treaty of thc 18th-30th of March, 1856. The
pedal convention between the two powers bor
?ering on thc Black Sea, annexed to this treaty,
ontaius an engagem nt on the p.trt of Russia to
imlt her naval forces to Inconsiderable dltnen
Ions. In return, this treaty offered her the prln
lple of the neutralization of that sea.
lu the view of the signatory Powers, this pria
Iple was to remove all possibility of conflict,
mellier between the Powers bordering on the
Hack Senor between them und the Maritime Pow
rs. It was to increase the number or territories
ailed by the unanimous agreement of Europe to
njoy the benetlts or neutrality, and so to protect
tusaia herself from alt danger of aggressions.
The experience of tineen yeurs has proved that
his principle, upon which depends the security or
he whole exttnt of the frontiers of the Rimslan
hnplre In this direction, rests only on a theory,
u fact, while Russia, disarmed in the ?lack Sea,
as even by a declaration recorded in the proto
ols of the conf?rences legally denied herseir the
"jsslbll'.ty of taking efficient measures of rm nt i rae
efeace lu ihe adjacent seas and ports, Turkey
reserved the ri?hi of keeping up unlimited naval
orces In the Archipelago and the straits, France
and England preserved the power of concentrat?
ing their squadrons In the Mediterranean.
Moreover, by the tei ms of the treary, the en?
trance to the Black Sea is formally and forever
prohibited to the Hag of war, whether of the
Riparian powers or any other power. But by
virtue of the convenlion called the Straits Con?
vention, the passage through these straits ls
closed to flags of wur. only In time of peace. It
results (rom this contradiction that thc coasts of
the Russian Empire remain expose 1 to all aggres?
sions, even on the part of less powerful States as
soon as tliev possess naval forces, to which Rus?
sia would be able to impose only a few vessels of
The treatvofthe 18th-30th March, 1956, more
over, has not escaped the Infractions to which
most of the European compromises have been
subject, and in pr-sence of which lt wonld be
difficult to ailinn that written law, founded upon
respect for treaties as abase of public law and
rule for the relations between States, has preserv?
ed the same moral sanction which it may hive
had In oilier times.
Wc have seen the Principalities of Moldavia and
Wallachia, the rate of which had been Axed by
the treaty or peace and by the subsequent proto?
cols under Hie guarautee or the Great Powers,
effect a series of revolutions as contrary to.the
spirit as to the letter of these compromises, and
which led them first to union, then to the sum?
moning of a rorelgn prince. These events occur?
red with the consent or the Porte and the acquies?
cence of th? Great Powers, or at least without
the latter having thought it necessary to make
their decrees respected.
The repr?sentative of Russia was the only one
to raise his voice to point ont tu the Cabinets that
by this toleration they would put themselves In
contradiction to the explMt stipulations or the
treaty. Beyond doubt, If these concessions,
granted to ono of the Christian nationalities or
the East, had resnltcdifrom a general understand?
ing between the Cabinets and the Porte, by virtue
or a principle applicable to the whole or the
Christian populations of Turkey, the Imperial
Cabinet would have had nothlug to do but ap?
plaud. But they were exclusive.
The Imperiiii Cabinet then could not but be
struck with the fact that lt had been possible to
infringe with Impunity the treaty or 1S56. but a
few years afrer Its conclusion, In one of Its essen?
tial clauses, in the fiico or the Great Powers as?
sembled In conference at Paris, and representing
as a whole the high collective authority upon
which rested the peace of ihe East. This infrac?
tion was not the only one. At several Intervals,
and under various pretexts, the entrance to the
straits has been opened to foreign ships or war,
and that or thc Black Sea lo whole squadrons, thu
presence ur which was ii violation or the charac?
ter or absolute neutrality ascribed to these waters.
In proportion ?is the pledges offered by the
treatv grew wenk, and especially thc guarantees
or an effective neutrality or the Black S?*, thc In?
troduction ot iron-clad ship", unknown ;;ud un?
foreseen at the time o." the conclusion orthe treaty
of 1866. augmented for Russia the dangers of ab
eventual war tty increasing, In considerable pro?
portions, the already evident Inequality or the re?
spective naval forces.
In this t-tate or things, lils Majesty the Emperor
was obliged to ask himself, what are the rights
and what tas duties which accrue to Russia from
these modifications in tho general situation, and
from those Infractions ot engagements to which
he has not ceased io bc scrupulously faithful, al?
though they were conceived In a spirit of mis?
trust with rc-pect to him ?
Upon mature examination of the question his
Imperial Majesty has arrived at the following con?
clusion, which yon are directed to bring to the
knowledge o: the govern meut to which you are
Our august master cannot admit. In law that
the treaties, Infringed In several or their essen?
tial and general clauses, remain obligatory in
those which touch the direct Interests or hts em?
pire. His imperial Majesty cannot admit, In fact,
that thc security ut Russia should depend on a
fiction which has not withstood thc test of time,
and be put In peril by his resp e: for engage?
ments which have not been observed In their in?
tegrity. Thc Emperor, confldlng in the senti?
ments of equity of the signatory powers of the
treaty of 1850, and tn the consciousness they have
nf their own dignity, Instructs you to declare that
hts Imperial Majesty can no longer consider him?
self bound by the ooll/atlons of the treaty of 18th
som March, 1850, so tar as these limit his right or
sovereignty in thc Black Sea: that his Imperial
Majesty considers lt lils right and lils duty to give
notice to his Majesty the Sultan In respect to the
special convention additional to the said treaty,
which tlxes the number am', the dimensions or
the shlps-of-w.sr which the two riparian powers
reserve the right of maintaining in the Black Sea;
that he loyally gives notice of this to the powers
signing and guaranteeing the general treaty, or
which this special convention constitutes an In?
tegral part; that he rsstores to his Majesty the

THE REM OE TERROR.
OUTRAGES IN UNION AND LAWLESS?
NESS IN 8PARTANBURG.
Tho Doings of thc Negro Militia In
- Union County.
[Fron the Union Times.]
The white people of this section are begin?
ning seriously to think of organizing themselves
Into a solid body of military, to protect them?
selves and families from thc outrages committed
and dang?rs threatened by fae prowling armed
negro State militia. The acts of those Ignorant,
self-conceited and misguided men, for the past
week have been outrageous lu the extreme, and
they must be ptopped, or bloody work win be the
result. Every night a band of them are to be
seen prowling about the suburbs of oir towns,
along the fences and In the woods, with loaded
guns, given to them by the State authorities, and
from dark until daylight In the morning the quiet
of our citizens ls disturbed, and the women and
chi dren kept under excitement by the sounds of
firing from these guns. Scarcely an hour tn the
night passes that we do not hear the report of one,
and sometimes Ave or six, In rapid succession.
Emboldened by. the fact that the white' people
quietly submit to this, they have commenced
overt acts of violence, disregarding age, i=ex or
condition. On Saturday night last they appear?
ed to have become perfectly wild, and determined
to bring about a collision with the white people.
Squads of these negroes were In almost every
section of this township on that night, with mus?
kets and cartridge boxes, making threats against
the white people. A squad of them went to the
house of Mr. J. H. Gail m an, one of the most peace?
able, quiet and respectable citizens In the county,
and discharged a volley Into the house. One of thc
balla struck a bed on which was lying a child, a
niece of Mr. Gunmarl, and lodged in the bed,
where lt was found thc next morning, and proved
to bc ong to the militia guns. Another shot was
aimed in the direction of the bed on which Mr.
O. and his wife were lying, but, fortunately.
. lodged in the side of thc door. The ball that
entered the bed struck about four inches from
the child's head. Five bullet holes can now be
distinctly seen In the bullding. About the same
time an attack was made upon the honse or Mr.
T. L. Hughes, and the night made hideous with
cursing, firing of guns, and throwing of stones.
Six ot thc mulila were arrested by au officer of
the Uulted States garrison, but as the captain
had no rio wer to arrest any of thc militia, -particu?
larly us one or them was an officer, and appa?
rently acting nnder orders, he could not confine
them, but released (hem. One prominent Repub?
lican lnforme<l us that as he was sitting on the
piazza of his house, just after dark, a number of
these militia passed with guns In their hands,
and shouted, "Get Into vour holes white folks,
the militia is ont to-night."
Above this town, -about midnight, four of these
armed militia were seen, who on meeting others
were heard to say "have yon seen anything of the
white horse company ?" To which the other an?
swered, "no." "Well look ont for them, they will
be ont lu a short time." This occurred not a great
distance from Mr. Gunman's house, and shortly
after wards firing was heard In that direction.
Not long after the firing they came back, and one
of them remarked-"if he bad showed his face,
I'd have given it to him." Firing of muskets was
heard In almost every direction nearly all night.
But these acts of firing and threats are nut con?
fined to one night, but arc of nightly occurrence,
and our citizens have come to believe that the
negro militia have determined to try their fight?
ing qualities by thus threatening and annoying
them, and maliciously firing Into their houses,
endangering the lives of their families.
But let us warn thc colored people tint If they
dopreclnitatsso.h'irrlb'ea state of affairs upon
ns, upon them and those who have incited them
to lt will fall the responsibility. There ls no white
military organization now In Union, bnt there is a
military Spirit among ns, tried and disciplined In
a four fears' war. which, if forced into active re?
sistance, in defence of wives, mothers and sisters,
will face death In its most horrible forms and
carry destruction to the opposing race, rather
than submit much longer to such outrages.
It ls a notable fact that with All the si andero us
reports against thc white people of this section,
no act of violence against the colored people has
been trjmped up, except those just before the
election, gotten np for political effect, and the/
were perpetrated by meu of their own political
The white people of Union desire no quarrel
with the adored people. Had they desired lt, the
outrages of last Saturday night would have been
sufficient provocation to bring lt about. Why are
th-se guns, with ammunition, permitted to be
taken from the armory and scattered all over the
county? Who ls responsible, If a colored man
moves to another State and takes handgun with
him, as many are preparing to do? We do not
pretend lo say there has been no outrages com?
mitted by some bad white men, but we do say,
that no responsible or respectable white man has
been gullly of them, or would aid, in any manner, ?
In committing them. When the vigilant author!
ues 01 Northern cities can drive bad men from
their communities, and stop the numerous hor?
rible crimes daily cunrmltted there, we may ex?
pect to prevent thc few outrages now committed
at the South. Every respectable white citizen in
Union deplores and deprecates such acts, and
stands ready to assist the proper authorities to
arrest those who commit them.
The white people have suffered and will suffer
much from the colored people, but so long as the
State arms arc In the hands of the indiscreet,
Ignorant, prejudiced and excitable colored militia,
with liberty to use those arms when and where
the prejudice or malice of any one of them may
incline him, just so long will the white people
feel they have no security In life or property, only
through efficient weapons or defence, guided by
their own strong arms and stout hearts.
Alleged Lawless Proceeding? In Spar
[From the Columbia Union.]
We are pained to learn that there ls still a dis?
position In Spartanburg County to keep up these
scenes of turbulence and disorder. We are In?
formed by a gentleman whose reliability we can?
not call in question, that there ls a determination i
expressed on the part of certain men to drive Re?
publicans out of the county and to set at d?fiante
the authority of the State. Thursday night a
disguised band of armed men entered the town
about two o'clock for thc purpose, as they avow?
ed, Of rescuing from the hands of the sheriff a
condemned murderer named White, who was to
be hung yesterday. It appears thar, this erl m lu al
had been convicted of the murder of a color- '?
ed mau about four months since, at a place called
Cherokee Iron Works. This gang of men demand?
ed of the sheriff the surrender of his prisoner, ',
but this demand, to his credit be lt said, the sheriff
flatly refused to comply with, and told the ruffians
ir they wanted to kill him and bis family they
could do lt, but he was determined to do his duty
and hang the murderer. It ls supposed that these
men were only deterred from attempting to res- !
cue the prisoner by being informed that the Jail
was full of armed men, sent there to assist the
sheriff Thirty-five men composed the band. After
Inquiring for several prominent Republicans they
finally retired, firing a few shots, and yelling the
We dislike being compelled to believe that the bet?
ter doss of the citizens of Spartanburg counte?
nance and support these lawless men In their hel?
lish work; bur lt does seem to us that ir the solid
men or that county would set their faces against
any and all these attempts to set the laws at defi?
ance, and would assist In bringing the offenders
to justice, all these outrages would cease. Quite a
nnmber of men are now here from that county,
and all of them tell the same story or a reign or
terror In certain localities. The only way to put
a stop to this work ls to arrest the men who en?
gage In lt, and mete out to them swift and con?
dign punishment. The peace and welfare of the ?
State and of the people alike demand thar this be

A CHAVEN CART ET-BA O O EE.
Thc Radical Version or thc Laurens
One Everson, a revenue official and a satel?
lite of the Scott Ring, writes a letter to the Na?
poleon (Ohio) Signal, in which he pretends to de?
scribe the disturbance at Lanrensvllle on the 20th
of October. The Lanrensvllle Herald prints the
letter aa '-a sample of the reckless way In which
thc Radicals can and do lie," and it ls evident
that Everson fled with what may be termed Radi?
cal rapidity. The letter ls as follows:

to his murder' being myself under the charge of
A terrible riot broke ont at Laurens COurthonse
on the 20th, the day after the election, which was
Joined in by the citizens throughout the county
and borders. After thc erneute at the Courthouse
square had subsided, the bushwhackers (for they
can be termed In no other way.) scoured the conn
try around, swearing death to all who had par
tlclpatcd in any way as prominent men In the
Republican party, and referring especially to the
State constabulary, of which your son was a
member. The constables had to flee for their
lives and took different directions. I had, in the
performance of my duty, reached Laurens, and
had to flee with the others who were suspected of
sympathizing with the Republican party. On my
route down the railroad, I was hailed from a
landing place by your son, and he told me that
others were with h im, also deelng from the danger..
About a bair hour arter this he appeared about 30
or 40 rods in the rear of wher?. I was, near
the railroad track, about five miles this side
of the Courthouse. Wm. Riley, a colored man,
was also with htm. They were approached by
about thirty mounted men, and both were shot
down In my sight. Ko power at hand could save
them from thc fury of the bushwhackers. I my?
self was thou attacked, and only through the mys?
teries of an order to which I belong was saved
from the same fate which befell your son, and
with great difficulty and trepidation have reached
this place. Tyler and Kahlo, reported killed, are
sale, as I saw them on my way down yesterday.
There ls no telling at this date how ma' y were
massacred, as the country was alive with these
desperate men, shooting colored men whenever
found in the highways. Wo know of eleven
killed, and lt ls fair to presume that there are
manv more not yet found, as a number of our
friends aro missing.
I join In the grM you mnst feel at yonr loss, for
I was Intimately acquainted with him, and both as
associates here and because we both had served
In the army fighting that princlpte which has now
caused his murder, onr thoughts and reelings
were mutual and harmonious. Of one thing yon
can feel assured, that when the day or reckoning
shall come, there yet remains In South Carolina
men who were lils comrades In the army, and
who will avenge, tn proper time and manner, hhs
death; my ?el r, the witness to his last moments,
among the number.
I am, your obedient servant,

A crazy woman, name unknown, was brought,

they who had charge of ber, had the eighty-six
dollars necessary for her half yearly contribution
