Duriug the twelve months of 1870 the number of
immigrants arriving at the port of Sew York,
where tho greatest inOux is received, was 211.190.
or more than enough to fully populate some of our
smaller State?. Ireland alone seat more than one
fourth of these, and Germany more than one-third,
and the immigration from the whole of Gt eat
Britain aggregates nearly one half of the entire
number. From France we received only twenty
two hundred, while Scandinavia contributed fif?
teen thousand. Russia, Switzerland and Holland
send about Ave hundred each, while far off Austra?
lia contributes nine, and the recent advantages be?
stowed upon gentlemen or color have enticed
only eleven irom Africa. The decrease In immi?
gration from last year ls less than fifty thousand,
not equalling what was expected on account of
thc war. Germany, or ?ourse, shows the greatest
falling off; but the largest proportional loss has
been from the Scandinavian States, caused by
the interf?rence or the war with the tines of
steamers which have been their principal means
of transportation. The Scandinavian immigra?
tion promises to surpass that of either Ireland or
Germany in the future, and is also among the
best f ir this country to receive.
Thc Charges Against Governor Scott.
We print in another column an article
from the New York Sun, of Monday, pur?
porting to be i he voluntary statement of Mr.
Samuel Hoggett, of No. 193 Madison street,'
New York, which statement is said to be
substantiated by several affidavits made by
memb?ra of the party to which Mr. Hoggett
belonged. It is alleged by Mr. Hoggett "that
an agent of Governor Scott went to New
York some three months since and engaged
twenty-five men to come to Sooth Carolina
to serve as deputy State constables. The
chief of this party was Colonel James E.
Kerrigan. They went to Columbia, and
were duly commissioned, and armed with
Winchester rifles. They found that Gover?
nor Scott and his intimate friends thought
themselves in constunt danger of assassina?
tion by the bullets of the Ku-Klux, and they
were informed that their particular duty was
to defeud them and kill their enemies. Some
of the leaders of the Ku-Klux were pointed
ont to them. They were promised that if
these leaders were killed, the killers should
receive ten thousand dollars for each man
killed, and be protected by the State authori?
ties. These deputy constables were subse?
quently seat out to the Union gold mines,
fifty miles or thereabouts from the City of
Colurribia, to protect negro miners. On this
expedition, Mr. Hoggett says, they were ac?
companied by fifteen United States regulars
under Lieutenant Paul. They remained
there ten days, and were thrice attacked at
night, but do not appear to have killed any
one. Finally, after having been in the State
plished anything, they were paid at the rate
of $2 a day, and ordered to leave. With
this order they complied, and many of them
are now in New York city."
This extraordinary story does not take us
by surprise. A'jout, two weeks ago, we re?
ceived what purported to be a statement
made by Colonel James E. Kerrigan, of
New York city, in which charges are made
similar to those contained in the letter of
Mr. Hoggett The statement received by
us is dated from New York, and reids as
In November last Colonel C. C. Baker, for?
merly a United States army officer, and Messrs
Puffer ami Runkle, came to this city to pro?
cure, ostensibly lor the pirposeof defending
tho Union gold mines, (formerly the Black
mines) in Union County, S. C., some fifty men.
They were acquainted* with Captain Wnsh
burneofthe Ninth Precinct. Captain Wash
burne Introduced Baker to Colonel James E.
Kerrigan, who agreed to Qnd the men In a few
lays. It was finally decided that twenty-five
would be sufficient, and ihis number of labor,
ing men, mechanics and others, were engaged
and sent to Columbia, S. C. Among the num?
ber were Colonel Kerri .un and Captain Lind?
say, both well known .ti this city as ardent
After arriving at Columbia each man was
armed with Spencer rifles, revolvers, a com?
mission from Hubbard, chief of police, as
policemen, and one from the Governor, as
constables. Colonel Kerrigan, it ls stated,
was commissioned as a captain of the South
Carolina militia These commissions were all
ilated November 17, 1870.
After their arrival at Columbia, In the latter
part of the month, Colonel Kerrigan and Cap?
tain Lindsay were Informed by Governor Scott
Lhat if. five men were removed from Union
County lt would be worth $30,000, and inti?
mated that they should be robbed and op?
pressed. II they resisted, "their saddle?,
should be emptied;" they "should be losr."
Thee were the terms used by the Governor.
Colonel Kerrigan and Captain Lindsay ap?
parently acquiesced In this cold-btooded pro?
position, and awaited further developments.
Their pay for this was to bc shares in tho gold
raines and ult limy could make by idbbery,
besides their regular pay as constables.
Among the men who were thur to be sum?
marily cleaned out. were the obnoxious Dem
jcrats, Messrs. Pearson, Smith, Gibbes, West
ind Sumner, all wealthy men, and controlling
:he county. Mr. West, who was captain of a
?ompauy of men formed for suppressing dis
jrders, was particularly obnoxious to the Gov?
ernor, and he designated him to be '"lost."
Mr. Hague, the Governor's private secreta?
ry, told all of the twenty-five men In Rose's
Hotel, Columbia, S. C., that lt was Intended
,hat they should "clean out" seventy citizens
>t the county, and that the Governor would
leo that limy came out ot any legal trial with
lying colors. At this Interview with the men,
?aker, Runkle and Puffer were present, and
tcqulesced lu all that H-igue said.
Representative Joe Crews, of Laurens, also
vanted S. B. Ford, J. Kyle and A. McCurley,
if Laurens, robbed and murdered. Crews
vould pay liberally, and if detected, the Gov?
ernor, he guaranteed, would pardon any one
rho was captured.
One ot the above three citizens, lt was stated
y Crews, had a safe in his residence, which,
; was reported, contained $15,000 or $20,000.
'his money was to belong to the men who '
captured it. These men were to be ki
Crews was ?o anxious that he grew irai
and he told two of the party who went n
here-Messrs. Cochrane and Barrow-that
would give them anything they wished ii t
would only murder Ford, Kyle and McCur
Larkin Lancashire, a distiller of Uc
County, was also to be put out of the way.
Colonel Kerrigan counselled his men no
do as Governor Scott, Hague, Baker and Cn
desired, but to hold their commissions as li
as possible, so as to get a l the money poss
for "heir services. When it was found t
Kerrigan and his men would not assassinat*

offic ially, and paid off by Governor Scott. Tl

Accompanying this letter were the follow?
ing statements :
STATEMENT or COLONEL PUFFER.
COLUMBIA, S. C., January 17, 1871.
To His Excellency R. K. Scott, Governor, <?c. :
MT DEAR SIB-I have been shown a copy ot
a communication addressed to TUE CHARLES?
TON NEWS for publication, and purporting to
have been written by James E. Kerrigan, ol
New York. In which, among others 'y name
ls mentioned, and which, in that connection,
contains so many misstatements that I must
say, first: That I did not visit New York to
pro3iire men ''ostensibly to guard gold mines,"
nor for any other purpose whatever. I WBB
introduced, while in New York, to Colonel
Kerrigan, as a former M. C., by Colonel Baker,
but I had no business with him whatever.
Second. That I was not present at, nor do I
know ol, any interview between Mr. Hague
and the "twenty-five men" referred to, and
could not, therefore, have "acquiesced" in
anything. Third. Thar I was present, with
other gentlemen ot this city, when the inter?
view between yourself, Colonel Kerrigan and
Captain Lindsay took place, and that during
that conversation nothing as alleged by Col?
onel Kerrigan was said lu my hearing-and I
believe I was preeent during the entire Inter?
view-and you expressly stated that you de?
sired them to ascertain the facts connected
with the late outrages In Union County of this
State, and to arrest the guilty parties.
YUH did not Intimate that you wanted any
meu assassinated, nor did I hear the names
alluded to by Colonel Kerrigan designated for
What arrangements Colonel Baker made
with Kerrigan and his party, I do not know;
I was not present when they were made, and
know nothing of the particulars.
I cannot conceive of any good arising from
the publication of a letter so malicious and so
untrue. At the present time, and during the
excited state of feeling In the npper counties
of the State, lt might do great harm, and could
possibly do co good.
C. C. P?FFER.
STATEMENT OP MR. R?NKLE.
To lae best of my knowledge and belief, the
above statement of Colonel Puffer is true, and
applies to myself, so far as it goes, with the ex?
ception of the Interview at your house, at
which I was no? present. Never having hen
present when any Instructions were yiven Col?
onel Kerrigan, or any of his men, or when any
arrangements were made with them, and
never having been told what they were, I cer?
tainly could not know anything about lt. So
far as the communication referred to relates
to me, I brand it as a base falsehood.
I am, very respectfully,
Your obedient servant,
J. H. RDNKLE.

COLUMBIA, S. C., January ll, 1871. )
Eis Excellency Ii K. Sro'!, Governor and
SIR-I have the honor to report personal
knowledge of an interview between yourself |
and Colonel Kerrigan, December 10, 1870, at
which time I was Impressed with the belief |
that Kerrigan engaged to obtal ., under false
pretences, money for himself and others, whom
he represented as having been engaged In con?
stabulary service at Union County. What I
remember most perfectly ls that you refused
to pay from the public funds an account which
had been fabricated upon representations of
Irresponsible persons, and ?hat you disclaimed
any connection with Colonel Baker, or his
mining operations, or. responsibility for their
pecuniary or other troubles. Kerrigan ap?
peared an adroit, persistent man, and made
various propositions and statements, and
when yon had torn the veil of lils flimsy pre?
tensions, he, nothing daunted, asked you to
give him a letter to carry to the Hon. R. B.
Connolly, Comptroller of New York city, as if
he had come 8outh under wrong Impressions,
and was loser in some disappointed political
ambition. You consented, and did write
obligingly for him. I am clearly of opinion,
which I unhesitatingly express, that Kerrigan
endeavored to filch money by intimidation,
and made actual threats to injure the credit of
public men as well as the Interests of the
State. I hove the honor to be,
Your obedient servant,
C. L. ANDERSON,
The hiter and the enclosures satisfied us
that the charges made by Colonel Kerrigan,
so far as Governor Scott was concerned,
were wholly false, and, disturbed as was the
popular mind, we determined to suppress
them. It is no longer practicable to ignore
these charges, however false, and we think it
due to Governor Scott that the statements of
Colonel Kerrigan and Mr. Hoggett should be
put before tho public, at once, together with
his own emphatic denial of their truth. We
say unhesitatingly that we do not believe
that Governor Scott ever contemplated a
plan of assassination so atrocious in itself
and so certain of detection. In fuct, we are
asked to believe that Governor Scott gave to
a party of New York roughs the power to
send him to the penitentiary, or the gallows,
mramrrtM - ~uum---M-i_Ui_xUL _ar_i?e
deemed insufficient. Work of this kind,
if done at all, were more safely done by the
[jail-birds who hang on the flanks of South?
ern Radicalism. Of the minor inaccuracies
in thc statements of Colonel Kerrigan and
Mr. Hoggett we take no notice. Tiiese
might be accidental. Bat we again affirm,
our belief that the general allegations, relat?
ing to Governor Scott, are substantially false.
There may be a grain of truth in the mass
of misstatements; but then
"A Ils that ts all a he may be met with and
