Hon. J. P. Reed has had an attack ol apoplexy.
THE BACON MARKBT. | t
The New York Dally Bulletin has the follow?
ing observations on the present position of j
the product of the hog :
The recent most persistent efforts to give ?
the market an appearance of excitement and 0
>uoyancy have nilled to break the genera! 8
?pathy of exporters, nnd the trade begin to .
:arry their figuring a little further to find out t]
ivherc the trouble lays. The conclusion arriv- s
id at appeal's to be about as follows : First, (
;hat the first movement abroad was to a large _
?xtent owing to the cheapness of goods, and 1
hat as soon as the advance here took place C
.he export on fresh orders stopped, though n
mmense amounts continued to go forward on
>ack contract; that lhere is enough now ac
mmulated in England and Germany to meet
tn unusually liberal cull, and that buying for
hemselves the consumers from the different
irmies will be more likely tp operate in an
iconomical and cautious manner than when
nppjled by the governments; that the French
n particular, after having obtained enough to
elieve present distress, will, as usual, Ignore
rte flesh of the swine to a great extent, and
hat, so far as Great Britain is concerned, the
ucrease In the home production will materially
essen tbe consumption of American goods, un
ess the rates ure kept low enough to admit of
ree purchases by thc very p .orest classes,
hose who In-many districts are compelled to
tibsist largely ou cheese, Ac, instead of meat,
lo much for the position abroad. And now let
ts look at home. The lute advance itself was
0 sharp as to make a considerable reac
lou almost positive, to say nothing ol a
leclded curtailment of all demands except in
be wa*'of Speculative Interest, which ls uu
loubtedly smaller, while every day gives evl
lence Of the large increase of the crop. Willi
.11 the goods sent abroad, and yet to go, and
he amounis taken tor home consumption,
here is uudoubtcd evidence of considerable
urger stock on hand than for the correBpond
ag period last year, and the last hoi; ls not In
et by any means, while the arrivals appear tb
how increasing weights every day. Certain
'rades of bacon, ctumeais, and possibly prime
tress pork, may be fairly sustained, but lhere
re a great many of the must thoroughly post
id. operators in thc trude who have serious
loiibts about mess pork and lard at current
'allies. Put them low enough and thcywill
indoubtedly sell, but with high prices a large
iroportlon of the production must uudoubtcd
y be carried over.

Bold Fraud?-Thc Authors Unknown
Interesting Evidence-How the People
are Cheated-The Trial Still Pend?
We continue our r?sum? ot the evidence
taken In the United States Court during the
last eight days, In the case-of the United
States vs. the Beaufort Commissioners of Elec?
Mr. Franklin Tal'oird, of Beaufort, testified
that he scratched two tickets, and recognized
boin among the ballots before him. Both con
taln??tthe name of C C. Bowen as member of
Congress. Since then, that name had been
erased, and R. C. DeLarge substltued, in a
handwriting which witness remarked was dis?
guised. On examining the Beaufort box since
the election, witness was satisfied that it had
never been opened with a chisel, and that the
manner of removing the votes was still a mys?
tery. Is a contractor and bulldler and fami?
liar with wood work. His only explanation
is, that the Bowen party were either out?
generaled by the DeLarge party, or that the
boxes were opened by some Northern patented
process entirely new .to the people of the
South. . ??.
Witness was present at a meeting held the
night before the election, which was turbulent
and combustible. Thought Mr. Williams gave
up all ho ought when he said the committee
might put a thousand seals on the box, bot he
would not allow it to go out of sight. Party
spirit was very high and things-were hot.
Heard Mr. Judd say there was not an honest
thread In them. .Somebody asked witness'
Dpinion, and he replied, ""Gentlemen, you have
ill been In the ring together so long, you
slight to know'each othej's character." Mr.
Judd spoke colleenvely. He ls a cool, calm
ind pertinacious man, eCgr?at Integrity, and
joes in to win when he starts out. Witness
?vas at the polls all day, and thought Bowen
?vas ahead. Voted for Bowen himself, be?
muse he WAS put on the Reform ticket as a
Mr. Silas Wright, of Beaufort, testified that
it a nominating convention held la thc town
ie heard Langley, one of the commissioners,
ay: "They have got the numbers, but we. are
rolng to win anyhow." It was at the time
;bat Whipper and all the defendants bolted
ind made other nominations at the house ol
Etobert Smalls. Being asked concerning the
Pocotallgo precinct, witness stated that the
argest number of votes polled Hiera under the
nllitary r?gime was from 175 to 200, and that
fte average before the last election could not
lave been more than 120 at the outside. Wit?
less was present during the counting o? bal?
ota when Mr. B. B. Sams was ordered out ot
he room for calling attention to the fact that
hree DeLarge votes were folded together.
ICr. Sams was the only one near enough to Mr.
Villi am s to see-whether he arranged the votes
correctly or not. During the first day there
vas no one on the part of the committee who
iould have detecied him' in calling a wrong
lame. Is United States Assistant Collector of
nternal revenue, and was appointed by Mr.
Sawyer. Took no more than an ordinary ln
erest In the election.
Wkne8ses were called to testify further In
egard to the Gray's Hill box, and to prove
