scandal and commotion were produced by these
allegations among the members or the Methodist
Epic copal Church, and the assistant agent, Rev,
John Lanallan, who gave currency to these
charges of irregularity, was severely censured by
many, while on the other hand a largo propor?
tion of the church membership supported him m
what they called his effort to reform abuses. In
consequence of the excitement occasioned among
Methodists over the matter, it was decided to
bring Mr. Lanahan to trial for having developed
this condition of aflalrs, or for having asserted
that they existed in the Book Concern. H!3 trial
before the book committee and a number of bish?
ops of the Methodist Church ls now progressing lo

Methodists. Mr. Lanahan's friends declare that
this prosecution ls a persecution of him instigated

-The death of Very Rev. Henry Alford, D. D.,
Dean or Canterbury, tn London, ls announced by
cable. He was weU known as a poet and biblical
writer, and was born in London in 1810, where he
died. He was educated at Trinity College, Cam?
bridge. His first effort in verse was a volume en?
titled "Poems and Poetical Fragments," publish?
ed at Cambridge In 1831, to which succeeded, in
1535, "Thc School or the Heart," and other poems,
in two volumes. In 1S34 Mr. Alford was elected
a Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge, and 1835
to 1853 was VI ar of Wymeswtld, Leicestershire,
where be added to the slender Income of his bene?
fice by taking pupfs. In 1341 he published chap?
ters on the poets or Greece, was Hulseau lecturer
la the University of Cambridge in 1841 and 1S42,
and examiner of logic and natural philosophy in
the University or London in 1841 to 1857. Mr. Al?
ford published his first volume or the Greek Tes?
tament in 1841, and since then four more, the last
of which, completing thc work, appeared In 1861.
The former volumes have passed through many
editions. He was also author of several volumes
or sermons. From 1853 to 1857 Mr. Afford was
thc omclatlnjz minister of Quebec street Chapel,
where he enjoyed a high reputation for eloquence.
In 1857, on the death or Dean Lyall, he was ap?
pointed by Lord Palmerston to the deanery of
-The history of Ruloff. the murderer, who was
las: Friday sentenced to be hanged at Bingham?
ton, New York, ls very singular. He is now
maa or sixty-five years or age, and, so rar as can
be ascertained, bis first step in crime was taken
only twenty-six years ago, when he had almost
reached the age of forty. He ls a scholar or un?
usual attainments, and, prevloas to hh rall, he
was not only a lawyer, but also a physician and
mechanic, and skilled In all three proresslons.
His wife and cbUd disappeared twenty-six years
ago, and he was put on trial ror abducting them,
but escaped. Then he was tried for the murder
of hl3 child, and was convicted, but, before sen?
tence was passed, the Judgment was overruled,
and he was discharged, because no body had
?ver been found. In all these cases, as well as
when he has been tried subsequently for other
Offenoes, he bas acted as his own counsel, and
condacted his affairs with great akin. On
one occasion, when Incarcerated for some
offence, he gained the good-will of the
jailor, who made him the tutor or a
son. In reward Ruloff led the young man
astray. Thu pupil In letters and tn crimes was a
companion of RulofT In ?ne burglary which re?
sulted in the death for which he has just been
tried. The yoong man was drowned in crossing
the river with the third burglar, and Ruloff was
thus the only one of the three left to be brought
into court. Much of RulofTs history ls unknown,
but some facts of his late career have come to
light. On two occasions he has defended his own
accomplices in New York County courts, under
an assumed name, acts of bold defiance which
must stand almost alone In criminal histo'y- In
his room in New York City were found not only a
quantity of burglars' tools, but a half-finished
treatise on the grammars of nations, written by
his hand. The feeling of the people in Bingham?
ton again-t thia literary bandit was so strong,
that lils acquittal was impossible from the first,
and there was an avowed purpose to lynch him If
the most unfavorable verdict was not recorded
against him; and yet In the face of such hostility
he defended himself as calmly as ir he were the
paid conusel or a stranger.
Governor Scott's Special Message.
Governor Scott is carrying out in good
faith the promises made at the time of his
re-election as Governor of South Carolina.
In his annual message to the General As?
sembly, delivered in December last, he pledg?
ed himself to make every legitimate effort
for the restoration of harmony to the dis?
turbed opinion of this State and for the rec?
ognition by all classes in the State of their
mutual dependence and common interest.
Close upon the heels of these handsome de?
clarations came thc reports of outrages in the
upper part of the State. The houses of in?
offensive white men were fired into; a white
man was brutally murdered by the negro
militia; a deputy sheriff, while in the dis?
charge of his duty, was fired upon and killed.
A band of disguised men broke into the
county jail, took out'five of the negroes im?
plicated in the murder of a while man, shot
two of them to death and mortally wounded
a third. Nor were tale3 wanting of attacks
upon the colored people by masquerading
whites. These occurrences caused serious
uneasiness, and the responsible citizens of
Union and Spartanburg counties, in public
meeting, pledged themselves to bend all
their energies to the work of discovering the
culprits and of preventing the continuance of
deeds at variance with enlightened public
sentiment and counter to the highest inter?
ests of the State. In the meanwhile, the up?
country Radicals, joined by the incendiary
leaders of the sea-board negroes, raised a
howl of indignation, ? tying all the blame
upon the whites, denr.liding that martial
law be proclaimed in t'je offending counties,
preaching the bloody gospel of fire and
sword. Governor Scott was denounced as a
weak and feeble official, who hod not the
brain to know his duty, nor the nerve for its
discbarge. Threats of impeachment were
bandied to and fro. A concurrent resolution,
haughty in words and insultingHn tone, was
hurriedly passed and presented to the Exec?
utive. His answer is the special message
printed yesterday-an answer which disposes
of the wild charges made against him,
while it proves that the Executive is resolv
sd to uphold the. prerogatives of his high
s?lice and to maintain the supremacy of the
civil power of the State.
Governor Scott tells the members of the
General Assembly that he has no informa?
tion of anything like "a county organiz i
"tion, to defy, or to defeat, the law." The
prompt and impartial administration o'jus- <
tice in Abbeville and Edgefield prov.d that I
the civil power was sufficient for lbj protec- ?
Lion of life, liberty and property. Nor,.as I
the Governor frankly admits, is there any 1
militia force at the command r i the Execu- <
;ive which would be competent to suppress 1
i violence and disorder so general as to dis- 1
irm the power of the civil coutts. Every I
?ffort has been made to discover the crimi- 1
inls and bring them to trial, but "the Ex- '
'ecutive i3 without the power, as he ought 1
'to be wilhout disposition, to interfere with (
"Hie due administration of the law." These 1
ire, indeed, noble words. Governor Scott s
jays distinctly that not a single case hos '
jeen reported in which the officers of the law '
" have been resisted in the discharge of s
" their duties." He adds : "There is no '
" invasion which lam called on to repel; I
" no insurrection which I am called on to 3
"repress." Yet, colored "General" "Whip- '
per and colored Coiigressnian-elect Elliott '
Jemand that they be allowed to Jead three '
.housand coast militiamen to root out rebel- ?
ion and stamp out. disorder. Governor '
Scott meets in the proper spirit the declara- i
ions made by " the responsible and inlluen- ?
1 tial citizens " of Laurens and Spartan- i
mrg, and, in the repression of lawlessness, '
proposes to apply unflinchingly " all the '
' power of repression " which he can law- 1
ally exercise. His expressions, moreover, '
n regard to Hie use of au armed force for
,he public protection have the ring of the
;rne metal. Ho says :
"It Is my opinion that the civil law of the 1
State ought to be sufficient, and it ls my deter- '
nination that It shall be sufficient to protect '.
;he person and property of every and any ci tl- I
jen of the State, however humble, friendless j
jr obnoxious. I cannot bring myself to con?
template the nse of an armed force to punish
Individual violations of the law in a time of
profound peace. Such a remedy would be as
sad as ihe disease, and would bc a public dec?
laration that lhere was no civil government in
South Carolina, and that we are living In a
condition of social anarchy. I ara bound by
my oath ot office a3 the Executive of this State,
md in reverence of those principles of con?
stitutional liberty which are the vital force of
true Republicanism, to see that the law is duly
enforced before I resort to other and danger?
ous powers. I dare no( and will not assume
that justice cannot be administered, until the
i[fort has been made and the failure evident."
Thc recommendations of Governor Scott,
of a more complete and efficient organiza?
tion of thc machinery necessary for the ad?
ministration of criminal "justice, will doubt?
less receive an early attention. Tue modifi?
cations proposed appear to us to be prudent
?nd reasoaable. We cannot, however, avoid
the reflection that Governor Scott himself ia
largely responsible for the lack of "ability,
" discretion and courage " on the part of the
Trial Justices, of which be makes complaint,
rhese Tri.ii Justices were appointed by him
-in ignorance, we bope, of Ihe patent fact
:hat not one in ten had any other qualifica?
tion than the ultra-Radicalism of his politi?
cal creed. Governor Scott can himself do
much towards reforming this part of the '
udicial system of Ihe State. i
The special message breathes a spirit of I
candor, of liberality, of fair-dealing and, I
jven, of magnanimity, which is worthy of i
ill praise. It is more than we had a right ]
to expect, and everything that ihe Conserva- i
,ive citizen can desire. For the first time '
?ve feel that Governor Scott is speaking, not i
13 a party leader, bat as the Chief Magis?
trate of the whole people of -South Caroline.
And we are confident that every right-think?
ing man will gladly accept the olive-branch
extended Lo bim. The welfare and peace of
the State tower above th? schemes and.plots
ci party. This is a generous and a law
abiding people. We are conlideut, there?
fore, that Governor Scott, in the honorable,
dignified and just posilion which he has
taken, will receive tho cordial support and
earnest co-operation of the white citizens of
