COLUMBIA, January 23.
MORE IN REGARD TO THE KERRIGAN AFFAIR.
The Kerrigan charges have created a con?
tinued excitement here. The attempt in the
House to "dispel the fabulous reporter of THE
NE?S from tue sacred precincts of the hall,''
on account of the charges copied from the New
York Sun, fell to the ground harmless, of
course, the speaker, with his accustomed good
sense, declaring it cut of order, as the House
could not reach a "fabulous" object.
Crews and Hague have been interviewed by
your correspondent, and deny in toto the
statements made in regard to them by Co'onel
Kerrigan and Mr. Hoggett. They admit, how?
ever, that the men came here and were sworn
in as constables.
Mr. Crews makes the following affidavit, the
original of which is in our possession: | (

aloresald, who, being duly sworn, declares,
on oath, that the following statement ls true E
in all respects : ?*
I deny ever authorizing or attempting to p
employ any means to assassinate any persons v
In Laurens or any other county. I never did J
seek an interview with any of Hie men belong- 1
lng to Colonel Kerrigan's band. I was sent p
lor by them, in Columbia, immediately after 0
their arrival. They proposed to me tb assassi?
nate any one that 1 would say I wanted put
out of the way, provided they could get ?ny I
money from tho party they should assassinate, a
They did not expect me to pay them, as they o
said; but their object was to gee money. They ,
said they would kill any men I would desig- tJ
nate. I stated to them that I expected to ap- h
ply to the clvii'law to punish asy parties who
had committed any offence to me or to any of
my party. I Immediately left their room. I 1
then took good care to have no more couver- g
satioa with them unless witnesses were pre- i
sent. In a few days they weat to Union, and
wbflh they returned Colonel Kerrigan came to
me and .asked me to prevail upon the Gov?
ernor to pay them some more money (or their
services as constables. I went with Colonel
Kerrigan to see the Governor, and he left Gov?
ernor Scott perfectly satisfied so far as he was
concerned. Next, one of the men who first
approached me with the assassination scheme I tl
said he had not got what he ought to have, d
and asked me to use my influence with the '
Governor to get him and some three or four
others about twenty dollars each, which I Je-1 a
dined doing, saying to them that they must 0
go to the Governor and see him lor them
selves; that I had done all that I felt lt was my
duty to do. as I had nothing to do with the I e
bringing of them here, and I did not wish i
to have anything to do with them now. In a 1
short lime aller they departed irom here, I
met some of them in New York, and one of I r
them stated to me that he would publish a card | r.
against myself and others unless we gave them
some money, which I declined lo do, saying to
them that no communication that they could
publish would effect me in any way. During
my stay in New York, I was visited by some
of the party and culled on lor money, and to
use all the influence I could to help them izet ;
more mone}-. Ali of which I declined to do.
This embraces ali the connection I have had i
with the affair.
Some of the men whom they charged me
with wanting to assassinate, I would do an}-11
thing in my power to ttccomodate at any time,
if I was to see them in trouble. As for Messrs.
Kyle and McCurley, I have nothing in the
world against them. Tnis man Ford ?hat they
speak of I don't know as being In the county.
If I had any chartres against them, I should
certainly resort to the civil law to have them
punished, as 1 AM OPPOSED TO ALL LAWLESS?

TOO MUCH OF A JOKE.
Yourcorrespondeut. allowing himself some
little latitude, attempted to perpetrate ajoke
on the impeachment business by sending you
anltem rega ding the disposal of tickets of
admission. As lhere seems io be but one per?
son wno can see the Joke, and that is your
correspondent himself, the conclusion must be
that be somewhat failed in bis intention.
Parties here treat it as a serious matter, and
hence the correction. The fifteen hundred
douars voted will, of coarse, go to the pay?
ment of witnesses and other necessary ex?
penses. We say now the impeachment la not
a ioke. Judge Vernon's friends have advised
him from the start to fight lt to the last.
Some time since we had a bill introduced by
some one of the untevrided, providing lor a
"lawful" fence. Mr. Mobley, Mobley-llke, now
gives us notice of a "Bill to prohibit the car?
rying of unlawful arms by persons not author?
ized to carry them." The penalty lor this
grave offence is to be one hundred dollars fine
and six months imprisonment.

THE COTTON MOVE31ENT.
NEW YORK, January 22.
The cotton movements for the week show n
marked increase In the receipts and exports,
and the figures indicate a very rapid move?
ment of the crop toward the seaboard, and
thence to Europe. Receipts, this week are
over 14,000 bales in excess of last week, while
exports are more than double of the corres?
ponding week last year. Notwithstanding the
Increased exports this year, the shipments
represent much less value in consequence of
the decline in prices, thc natural result ol the
European war. Receipts at all the port3
tor the week were 146,387 bales, against
135,535 last week, 139,C31 previous week, and
124,250 three weeks since; total receipts since
September 2,048,821, against 1,025,139 for the
;orresponding period of the previous year,
showing an increase of 422,885 in favor of the
)reseut season. Exports from all Hie ports
or the week, 119,349, against 6I,08G for Hie
ame week last year; total exports for expired
lortion of cotton year, 1,219,548, against 838.
15 for the samo time last year. Stock at all
Orts, 546,470, against 436,725 this date last
ear. Stocks at interior towns, 117,179, against
01,045 last year. Stock of cotton in Liver
col, 545,000. against 341,000 last year. Amount
f American cotton afloat tor Great Britain,
90,000, against 141,000 last year. Amount of
ndian cotton afloat for Europe is 88,000,
gainst 87,000 last year. The weather at the
Outh was less favorable for picking opera
Ions during the week. In some sections rain
as fallen, and in others the weather bas been

[FROM OUR OWN cc..RESPONDENT.]
WASHINGTON, January 21. i
Another week has rolled on, bearing on the- 1
pages of its history one more feature of Radi- j
cal tyranny and national shame. This, like ?
previous usurpations and exhibitions of despo?
tic power, received its support from the Sen?
ate, but is characterized with the mark of
Executive approbation. Singular it is that it
6hould be so, when hardly four weeks ago the ?
President was explaining that ho did
not recommend general amnesty in his
annual message because he forgot the
good Intentions he had formed In that'direc
tion. Now, this resolution of Morton's,
prised to replace the South under mar?
tial law, ls so perfectly antagonistic to any .s
thing like amnesty that it must be at once 1
perceived that Grant, who was consulted con- 5
ceraing the political necessity of such planning,
has given np altogether any idea of recom- r
mending it. With this the Radical party in c
Congress have shirked their duty, and thus In '
the place of the absolute demands for lt which
the leading Republican Journals representing 1
popular sentiment, as well a3 Republican Con- r
pressmen, actuated as well, perhaps more, by c
motives of policy as by the Inducements of "
:ommon justice, have repeatedly enunciated.
Upon the topic of excluding all Southern J
?"tates from repr?sentation in Congress who
Jo not send mercenary carpet-baggers or ne
irroes, wnicb this resolution contemplates and
which the investigating committee appointed
under it will endeavor to effect, there ls ab- r
whitely no ground for uneasiness. It cannot t
avail to stop the rush of Conservative victories, _
und the endorsers of it, who, in their eagerness
lo grab it as another weapon ol offence, did ?'
not stop to count the cost, or to bestow a sin
orle thought upon tbe responsibility incurred
i)y its adoption. The committee must paint
the Southern States blacker than ever before;
they must rack their imagination for stories
yet more diabolical than any that have been n
uttered to give their resolution its proper dig?
nity, and they have the men to do it with. Ii
Senator Wilson, who has Just returned from
Massachusetts, can search the records of out- u
rages back from the days of Stanton's adminis?
tration, while Chandler will be a host lu him?
self, and can detail speculations enough to J1
frighten the peaceful Senate out ol its '.seven 1
Now here is another thing to be taken In o
consideration. There must bo an army to t
take charge of these States wherein the game il
of reconstruction ls to be played over again, a
That is. if the Intents ol the new measure are v
are to be acted upon in their fullest extent. I
But if the military force ls depleted or Its
strengtl), and If "wrong and outrage'' are so I
rampant as the Radical party will persist in as- t
serting, there must needs be an Increase in the c
army, which has employment enough already c
upon its banda without being posted in reg?- T
menta aud brigades to carry out the work ol'
changing the sentiments of the Southern pop- (
ululions. Sherman will not be able lo stand lt. ,
and though he ls quiet he condemns Invaria- s
bly any such proposition, thinking there will ,
be work enough for his torces In i lie spring, i
when the Sioux and the Apaches range again ,
upon the war path. 1
But these are minor to the great thing of all, y
and that is Hie revulsion of sentiment which
hos commenced and is goin^ on in (tie North
and West. Il is tile skeleton in the Radical '
closet which grows larger and more repulsive .
with each stroke of despotic enactments.
Tue senate is not in session to-day, haviiur '
adjourned over so that senators might have ail j
opportunity of transacting business wiLh the, ?
President, who, in his turn, also takes boll- .
day ami refuses to be interviewed, and "curses
not loud but deep" attend his indifference.
The House indulges iu Its usual Saturday
"gab," and "revenue reform," -'land grants,"' ,
'.high taxes" and "low tarlfls," are lu order
for any amount of impassioned oratory. <
The anxiety in all circles over the situation |
about unhappy Paris approaches the intensity i
of suspense. Many have thought that ere this '
all would have been over, because of the '
strong German ally, starvation, which inn-t 1
be marching now with seven leagued boots.
So strong has been this opinion, that specula- '
lions have beeu In some quarters rutnpaul ]
upon the settlements to be made-and the pos- j
siole divisions muong the brave I renell people
concerning their own future. Bul of course
ail must be the merest guesses, without ope I
word ot substantial information. The govern- 1
ment rarely hears /'rom Washtuiine. Uioiigh
the report is circulating to-day Unit th? Si?ie 1
Impartaient has official advices irom him, an?
nouncing the desperate condition of affairs iu
the beleaguered city, mentioning, tis au luci; 1
dent of the horrors, that horse meat is selling ;
now for two dollars per pound.
Governor and Senator-elect Vance, of North
Carolina, is still in this city. It is very doubt?
ful if lie. will be admitted to his seal in ibu
Senaie. It seems a burning shame to write
these words, but what else does the Radical
warfare against the rights ol his constituency
mean! The modest demeanor ol this gentle?
man. In such niter com rust lo the carpet-bag
element ot the North, has won for him golden
opinions among the b'J er order of Itadicals,
but, unfortunately, the '.worser half " occupy
the p sitions of power.
Advices from Connecticut, where the Democ-.
racy have renominated Governor English, are
most encouraging lor the success ol' the Con?
servative ticket lu that State.
Just now there is a little fever of excitement
in official circles, as well as throughout the
country, about the repeal of the Income tax,
which has been recommended by tb? n*w com?
missioner ot internal revenue, and (Ais time the
impression ts quite general that Congress will
accede to the demand whicn comes lu from all
quarters that this odious and really unconsti
tutiona?-but the last ls of little consequence
here-law be rescinded. Mr. Boutwell has
been opposed to it, and still ls, but so far has
interposed no objection, although he thinks
that it was his business, and not within the
province of a subordinate officer of his depart?
ment, to make the recommendation.
This lead3 to thesusrgestlon that there will be
"fun" in the Treasury Deparcment before lons.
The military commissioner of Internal reve?
nue is, in many respects, ignoring the right?
ful dignities of the Secretary of the Treasury,
and it looks as if, in so doing, he has the sup?
port of the President. It looks very much as
If Grant would be glad to have Boutwell re?
tire, and as if, with his Internal revenue com?

PARIS, December 29.
"The bombardment has begun." Every?
body In Puris is shrieking, and, with the ig?
norance characteristic ot those people, every?
body is insisting the bombardment ls a sure
indication that the "Prussians, despairing t*
overcome the noble resistance ol the Parisians
(which is the admiration of the whole world.)
and terrified by the approach ol the invincible
legions of the provinces, have determined to
trv to end the matter at once."
The fact ls the Germans have opened a hea?
vy cannonade on Avron heights, which are
seven miles from Paris, while the German bat?
teries are three miles and a halt or four miles
still further off. Mentally measure these dis?
tances around your place of resldenee, and
imagine your house bombarded by cannon ten
or twelve mlle* off.
The Germans have opened a cannonade at
this great distance because it enables them to
worry the French without exposing their own
meu. They have opened the cannonade to
force the French troops to keep the field in
this severe weather, which ls not ouly killing
or disabling the French by hundreds dally
(three hundred men have been brought in
frozen in ode night,) but is disheartening
The order for the rellim to Paris "Of the
troops was given only under pressure ot offi?
cers, who declared their men would not, and
could not, stand the severity of the frost. They
sleep on the frozen ground, with no covering
but a very thin blanket. Tiley are Insufficient?
ly and irregularly led. They ure miserably
shod. One night passed in these conditions is
more fatal than a pitched battle. Therefore
the Germans, willi accustomed sagacity, have
forced Hie French from the cover of Paris into
the open field?" covered with snow and swept
by cutting winds which penetrate the thickest ?
There needs no bombardment to end the
siege. Its consummation is at hand. There
were 9000 omnibus horses al the beginning of
the siege; 'here are only 3000 left-not four
days' supply. We have eaten so many hearse
horses (you know funerals are a monopoly
which is lar med to a company) Croesus him?
self, were jhe to die, would be obliged to con?
tent himself with one horse to lils hears-,
though no Croesus ever yet quitted Paris tor
Pere la Chaise except with lour or six horses'
tails turned on him. i went lo Pere la Chaise
yesterday-1 was there only three hours, during
which time thirty funerals passed by me. Two
thousand seven hundred and twenty-eight per?
sons died here between the 13th and 24th inst.
Typhus fever swept away 221 (last week 173
pei'tsh-'d by the same malady,) small-pox SSS
(instead of 391.) and numerous cases of lock?
jaw, gangrene, and purulent infection arc re?
ported In the hospitals. The apothecaries'
shops are gettiug as empty as the grocers'.
Bands of thousands ol people go out at night
to cut down trees ami tear down fences for
fuel. It is impossible to do anything with
.them, for there are no lights lu the most dis?
tant streets. Petroleum oil alone is used in
the street lamps. All tim gas is kept for-the
balloons. So great ls the scarcity ol'fuel and
the severity ot the weather, we are burning
mahogany^ sandalwood, and all other precious
woods heretofore reserved for cabinetmakers'
use. The lecture-room (the old concert-room)
ol'the Musical Conservatory, and some ambu?
lances are healed with fuel of these costly
tropical woods. Many poor familles are burn?
ing their furniture.
The provisional government meets daily to
consider the policy to be adopted to end the
siege. The majority of members are, it is ru?
mored, thinking of leaving Paris in balloons to
avoid signing the capitulation. General Du
crot ls for massing the troops and for hewing
their way through the German lines to Join the
provincial armies. He declares lt treason to
the republic to surrender 200,000 soldlere (reg?
ular army and Gardes Mobiles,) to the Ger?
mans, and swears he will neither Bign nor
take part Ia any capitulation like Sedan and
Metz. It was rumored yesterday in Paris he
had gone off in a balloon daring the preceding
night. This is a mistake, he Is still here. He
will probably make his exit by this way, for he
fights with a rope around his neck. Yon know
he bas betrayed his parole, which be gave up
General Blanchard is opposed to any such
steps of desperation. He says there ls no plain
in i he neighborhood of Paris sufficiently wide
for 200,000 men to make saeh a dash; that the
enemy's cavalry would make them prisoners:
that the few *who escaped would perish of
hunger and cold by the roadside^ moreover,
where could they go ? The Garde Mobile would
refuse to obey any such orders, and it Ia be?
lieved the regular army would prove equally
refractory to them. To attempt to carry out
such a scheme would lead te tho disorganiza?
tion ol the army and probably to frightful
scenes In Paris. Conceive 200,000 men sud?
denly released from discipline ana eager to
make amendsln riotfor weeks of every sort
of severe privation:
The Radicals are in seoret conclave almost
nightly, and lt is notorious they are plotting
the renewal of the. attempt to overthrow the
Provisional Government. When you'conslder
the numbskulls who are at the head of affaire,
does not our situation seem desperate ? The
clearer heads are in favo? of the immediata
capitulaci?n ef Paris (for some time, at least a J
fon night-bow much longer nobody here
knows, for we are absolutely Ignorant oj Che
state of the provinces and of the'railway lines
-rivers and canals are closed by ice,) and the
signature for an armistice to bold elections 1er
a national-assembly to negotiate a peace.
General Trochu's views are not known to
the public, but it is believed he stlll hugs the
delusion of being able to break the line of in?
vestment, and he is resolved' his name shall
not be associated with the capitulation. WU!

dies or rails into a state of trance. The whole
aspect of Inanimate natures teaches us that there
is a paralyzing influsncc In the air, and ought to
teach as that our bodies require an lp crease ol vi?

warm blooded animals bury themselves in the
earth and remain In a state of partial stupefac?
tion until the season is over, and the elixir of the
spring sunshine stimulates their stagnant blood,
and restores their vigor. But man although he
