sons, Oastis and Fitzhuga Lee. The uses upon
the property davine acm ululated daring the re
hellion lt was sold therefor, and purchased hy the
government; thus lt will bc seen lt IS held by
virtue or atax title. Subsequently-errons wei?
made to redeem lt by paying thc amount of
taxes, bot they were anwccessful, and thc title is
still vested to thc government by virtuo of the
tax salo alluded to.

being involved ld the quarrel for the mayoralty or
Richmond-that finally ended in thc frightful
courthouse dlsas-e?. He was tried for forgery
and convicted.a short time since, and lt is grave?
ly related that, Immediately following-Hie sen?
tence, the culprit-who tilled at thc time the
office of United States commissioner-was taken
by the marshal and installed in his Judicial seat,
Where, for the rest of the day, Uo sat in Judgment
over criminals sent before his court. When the
Judicial work of the day was ended, he was
marched off to prison, and Is now serving out
(our years in the Virginia Penitentiary.
-Brigham Young is le iturlng the Mormons* on

the day or her dc .th, when she had occasion to
wear a cloak, and chen she lort this plr.ee for thc
next apartment she ?MS.forty-nine yean old, and
they went to her daughter. I do not know what
bas become or them, she did not taite?. cloak
worth $2-% seo, $40 of $50, and sit down lu lt with
a child with a piece or meut m each hand to grease
lt all over. But now let some women get a silk or
satin dress; and they will, perhaps, while weiring
it, take up a child with a piece ot chicke n in one
hand and apiece of pork in the other, or a cup of
milk to drink, and as likely as not some or lt ls
spilled on her dress, and then they say, 'Well, I
declare, my dress ls spoiled.' "
-The clock at present in the cathedral at Stras?
bourg ls not the original one. It is. In reality, the
third, all very wonderful pieces ol mechanism.
The first clock was commenced in 1332, and com?
pleted two years afterwards by John, Bishop or
Uchtenburg. It was placed In the don'-lc tran?
sept, oppoiitc to thc place or. the present clock.
There Is still to be seen in the Wall the brackets
which served to support.- The second clock dates
Irom 1547, but, from various causes, was not com?
pleted till thc 24th of J-mc, 1074. This clock was
restored the first time in 1CC9; a second time In
1732, and ceased to work altogether in 1789. The
present dook was commenced In June. 1838, and
was set go'.n; for thc first time on Sunday, thc 2d
of October, 1842, on the occasion or the tenth
scientific congress o? France, which mst.at Stras?
bourg. It was solemnly inaugurated on thu cist
or December followiug, when a nocturnal fete was
given to the maker.
-The correspondent of the London Telegrpoh
with the German army of-the Loire writes as >l
lows or tho services or the Pruss?au ca vi r:
"The various movements or the Cerman tr- is
have been hitherto conducted without any it
tempt at molestation on the part or the enemy.
Protected by a thlek curtain or ever-watchful,
eavairy, the infantr* hive moved hi perfect free-'
dom, without even a thought of danger to harass
?rlmpede?them. No branca or thes?rvlce has con?
tributed more to the marvellous successes of this
campaign than the cavalry; aud military authori?
ties will do well to consider the great importance
of that arm aa. evidenced in the praent war.
Pushing on sometimes two or even three clays'
march ahead of the colainas, the cavjlry have
with an audacity that would have amounted to
recklessness but for the extraordinary cat e and
.kill in their movements, and their topographical
knowledge-succeeded in not only completely
covering and guarding thc advance of the armies,
but also in obtaining such accurate and constant
information as to the strength, position, and
movements or the enemy, that the German com
manders have never been af a loss to know in
i 'Which direction to concentrate their troops, where
I to reinforce, or where, without danger, to weaken
I a corps. .
-The.correspondent of the London Daily News
at the Prussian headquarters says : "I under?
stand that lt has been under discussion whether
the King shall enter r^ns when the capitulation
takes pl icc, and that it ls all but decided that he
is not to do .so, but that Prussian royalty is to be
represented by thc Crown, Prince Unquestionably

South Carolina.and Congress.
A week or two ago thc Burn well Sentinel
published a memorial in which Congress
was asked to appoiut a committee "to iuves
"tigote and report on the political condition
.'olSouth Caroiina, and to niukesuch sugges?
tions as to them may seem lit, wise and
"pruper." The memorial set forth the charger
against the State government, with which
the peopie became familiar during tho late
political canvass, and was desired to be
signed throughout the State. IQ this direc?
tion we believe that little, if anything, has
been done. The New York World, how?
ever, has heard that the memorial is now re?
ceiving signatures prior to its presentation,
and it urge3 upon Congress the propriety of
acceding at once to the request which the
memorial embodies. Thi3 makes it proper
for us to say that the people of South Caro?
lina, according to our information, do not
court or desire any interference ou the part
of the General Government.
It ia only reasonable to suppose that any
Congressional committee which might, at
this time, be appointed would report in favor
of the State administration ; and even a sat?
isfactory report would be of little bene?
fit to* *the people. A Radical Congress
will not meddle with a Radical State
government, and the debates in the
Senate and House this wee!: point out
th- malignant spirit in wit ich any opposi?
tion movement would be received. The
moral effect of au exposure of the iniquities i
of the past two years would uot be worth I
two straws in the way of preventing abuses |
in the future. Moreover, any violent agita- i
tion against the present State Government,
now that it promises better thitig3, would
unquestionably interfere with the usefulness
of the few inen who are striving to do good,
and would, besides, ' exercise an injurious
influence upon the business prospects of the
We know too well how much- remains to
be done before South Carolina may rejoice
in the possession of - a government which is
thoroughly capable, thoroughly representa?
tive and thoroughly honest. But we are
convinced that we can work out the problem
for ourselves more speedily and more surely
than a congressional committee, with Con?
gress at its back, could possibly do it for us.
Burnt children dread the lire. We pray that
we bc let alone. .
Thc Regulation of Lahor.
Aaron Logan, ono of the negro members
of tb? Legislature, carries off tho palm as the
proposer of a plan cf regulating labor,
which is as comical as it is absurd. This
new conjuring trick takes the shape of "a
"pill for the regulation of labor contracts,"
which begins with a multitudinous where?
as, and in the first section onacts "that on
"and after the passage of this act, tho Ia
"borers and employees may assemble at
"their respective polling places in, the State
"on the first Mondays in January, April,'
"July and October in each year, to propose
"and decide Ly ballot apon a fair price to
"be charged and paid for labor, fuily dis?
charged, by the day and month, and a ju3l
"and reasonable portion of tho crops; and
"laborers discharged during any fractional
"parts of a month shall be paid for in accor?
dance with the price agreed upon as a day's
"wages." Section 2 provides for the meet?
ing of mechanics, tradesmen, artisans and
the employees for the purpose of adjust?
ing uniform prices for their respective
trades, crafts, ?fcc The rates adopted by
them are to be considered thc minimum
rates for the next three months, or until
changed Section-i provides-that at these
quarterly meetings three managers of elec?
tion shall be chosen, who shall receive two
dollars each for their services in conducting
tho election. The County Commissioners to
furnish ballot-boxes. The polls are to be
kept open from C o'clock A M. to 5 P. M.
The followiug is the mode of voting. "Each
'?voter being eighteen years of age, and not
"under, shall provide, himself with a ballot,
"upon which shall be written or printed, first
"the name of his avocation, then tho price of
"a day's lubor.anda month's labor; and those
"engaged in agricultural pursuits shall have
"written or printed thereon, instead cf prices,
"the portion ot.the crop or crops. The prices
"receiving thc highest votes, shall be deein
"ed the minimum prices to be charged ami
"paid for labor during the three months
"following." Section 7 i3 tho "intermediate"
clause, and provides that auy employer
threatening or discharging his employee for
voting as he pleases , is subjected to a fino
of fifty dollars and thirty days' imprisonment
We suggest toat this round about way of
growing rich is .unworthy of ihc wisdom or
experience of the South Carolina Legisla?
ture. . Representative Logan does not go
far enough. He should immediately propose
an ameudment to thc constitution, declaring
that whosoever hires laborers docs so for
their benefit and not for his own pro?t, and
that the rate of the remuneration of every
laborer so employed shall be determined, not
by the value of his work, but by his owu es?
timate of what, his services are worth. To
this might bc added a provision for extract?
ing sunbeams from cucumbers, pr, in other
words, for extracting sense from the non?
sense of Aaron Logan and his colleagues,
and then the organic law would be charm?
The discussion, in the House o? Represen?
tatives, or the proposal to authorize a
county tax, in Charleston'- County, of five
mills on tho dollar, brought to light some,
startling facts. Jervey, one of the members
from Charleston, said that the county com
nrissiouers had already issued more checks
than they could pay, and Bo3emon admitted
that tho county was in debt to- the tune of j
3100,000. Lee asked that, Edgelield, also,
might hay? a tax of live mill*, upon tho
ground that a three-mill tax would only pro?
duce about $27,000, which 3nm would be
swallowed up in trial justice fees.
It ?3 evident that under tho present system,
or want of system, the county commissioners
may levy the a*uthoriaed tax, and then spend
aa tauch aa they choose, leaving to .their suc?
cessors the unpleasant duty of making good
the. deficiency. There ia au urgent need of
reform is this matter, and wc call to the at?
tention of the General Assembly the follow?
ing extract from the message of Governor j
Scott, submitted to them only a few days
ago, and already, we suppose, well-nigh
"I would direct your attention to Ibo laws
defining the powers and duties of county com?
missioners, and their piTvisions and abuses.
From the frequent complaints against some
of the boards, it v?ould bc imagined that they
wero devoted more to private acquisition than
thc faithful discharge of a public trust. In
neighboring States the office of county com?
missioner is looked upon moro as an honorary
station, bestowed as a mark ot confidence and
trust in the judgment and business capacity ot
the individual, rather than as a position of
pecuniary emolument, and, except in the
neighborhood of large cities, the compensation
is but trivial, seldom amounting to more than
from fifty to a hundred dollars per annum.
Stringent laws are required lor tho preven?
tion and punishment of abuses, which will re?
strict expenditures within legitimate bounds,
forbid all participation, direct or Indirect, In
contracts, for which proposals should be In?
variably advertised, restricting thc amount of
county orders Issued, constituting the county
auditor the permanent clerk of the board, by
whom all orders should be signed and issued.
TDB Yorkville Enquirer expresses its re?
gret that manifestations of violence, which
all good citizens must condemn, have ap?
peared in York Connty, and suggests that at
as early a day as practicable the law-abiding
people of the county hold a meeting, and in
conjunction with the constituted authorities,
take such measures a3 will secure to the
county that peace hud order which they so

bers from Greenville, offered an amendment
on Wednesday to prohibit the members of j
tho General Assembly from drawing their

amendment '..as supported by all the Reform
