England, Norway and Sweden, less, and in
Ireland least of all. This fact Indicates, what

-The Cincinnati Gazette, of the 29th, pub?
lishes a letter from Mr. Jesse Grant, tne father
of the President, of nearly two columns, being
his history of his difficulty with the "Stums
family." whilst thu Gazette gives a column
and a half of editorial to the same momentous
subject. Horace Stoma, of Cincinnati, was
assessor of the First Ohio District, and Mr.
Grant recommended to Stoms the reappoint?
ment of one Weithoff tor gauger. This was In
1869. Stoms has since charged In a letter to
the President, that Mr. Grant said, at the time
(January 16,1871) of soliciting the appoint?
ment "So and so has offered me five hun?
dred dollars if I can get you :o recommend
his reappointment:. He Is a rascal; but I will
take his money and divide with you." Wil?
liam 8toms, lather of Horace Stoms, also wrote
to the President, stating that his f the Presi?
denta) rather had proposed the acceptance of
bribes to put men in office. Mr. William Stoms
claims to have ever been the "unflinching
jriend" of General Grant, but an "iraperaiive
-duty demands," Ac., proceeding lo remark that
the newspapers are reporting the discharge of
his son from the office of assessor through t he
Influence and request of the President's father.
General Grant yent these letters to his father,'
and the old gentleman publishes them in full,
with appropriate comments. As tin-he letters
were written about two years aller the alleged
bribery proposition had been made, the reti?
cence the "unflinching friends" ol General
Grant have observed upon the subject, until
one of them was turned oui of office, is re?
markable. Old Mr. Grant denies the charge,
alleging that persons in A hose jndgm nt
and nouesiy he relied told him that
Weithoff was a man fit to be appoint
J eil, and one said be would give $600 to have
I the appointment made." This offer was told
to the Stomses, ont wtth no idea on the part
[of Mr. (Staat that lt waa intended as a bribe.
[The statement of Mr Grant is pialo and sim?
ple, not destitute of a humorous aptitude ot
epithets, as where he describes the elder Stoms
as a '-talkative, confidential kind of mau,"
sometimes known as "Old Billy.'" We give
the concluding paragraph of the communica?
tion, which ought to spike the guns ol his as?
sailants, If they are accessible to one of those
touches ot nature which "makes the whole
world kin :"
"I think the napers will not make-anything
by abusing me,' now nearly eignty years old,
only because I am the President's father, nor
tbat all ot them put together can cause him to
honor his fal ber and mother less lu the future
than he has In the past, even as God bas com?
manded him. J. B. GRANT."
-?draft for the new organization of the re?
gion (Alsace and Lorraine) ceded by treaty by
Prance to the German Emperor, has been for?
warded by Count Bismarck to the Federal
Council, and will be laid before the Federal
diet. This district, comprising 5695 English
miles, and containing 1,580,000 inhabitants, ls
to be governed by an administration emana?
ting direct lrom the German Emperor, aod
which will be divided loto the financial, edu?
cational, agricultural and clerical departments.
As the appointment of separate ministries
would Involve too great an expense, the pro?
vincial capital is to be established at Stras?
bourg, where the intermediate authorities will
be stationed, and will be placed under the con?
trol ot the Prussian ministers of Justice and of
commerce, who will manage the affairs of Al?
sace according to the directions of the Em?
peror of Germany. The provincial courts of
I Justice will retain their former organization
and Jurisdiction, but the code of the North
Germ m Confederation will be substituted tor
the French code. The court of appeals ls to
be removed from Colmar to Strasbourg.
tient ral Kershaw to Senator Robertson.
We print, in another column, the reply of
General Kershaw to the letter addressed to
him, and other leading citizens, by the Hon.
T. J. Robertson, one of the Radical senators
from South Carolina This reply is written
without consultation with the gentlemen as?
sociated with General Kershaw by Senator
Robertson, but the weight, and influence of
the writer entitle ice statements to conside?
ration and respect, abroad as well as at
There cannot be a better proof of the de?
sire of the people of the State to live tn
amity with tbe negroes than the nearly
unanimous support given by the whites to
the Reform movement Sacrificing time,
labor and sentiment, the native leaders of |
the Beform party accorded to the freedmen
the amp'ost practical recognition of their
civil and political rights. ' The white Demo?
crats and black Republicans stood together
On the stump, sate in the same committee
rooms, were voted for on the same tickets.
So anxious were tbe whites to prove that
theirs was not a party movement, that a
prominent Republican was pat before the
people as the Reform candidate for Gover?
nor. So anxious were thc whites to prove
that they were dealing honestly with their
former slaves, that In more than one in?
stance, it is to be feared, candidates were
nominated, and voted for, only because they
were negroes. A hearty and vigorous effort
was made to bring together the good men
of both parties and both colors, with the
single object of secaring a fair and equal
form movement failed. Excited by the
speeches of tbeir trusted leaders, the negroes
rejected the argent, banner of Peace and
raised the bloody standard of Passion and
Wrong. Nor was this enongh. AB Gene?
ral Kershaw, with exact truth, says : "The
"Commissioners, Managers and Boards of
"Election were so selected, and the election
"laws so cunningly devised, as to secure the
"result of the ballot Irrespective of the will
"of the people." Armed negro militiamen,
demagoguical appeals and unjust laws, de?
feated the movement for Reform.
There are two other points in the letter of
General Kershaw to which we desire to di?
rect particular attentiou. They are : 1 That
the collisions in Chester and Laurens were,
on the part of the whites, necessary and jus?
tifiable acts of self-defence. 2. That where
the negroes have not been armetl to thc
teeth, so as to threaten the lives and prop?
erty of the whites, there hos been no Ku
Klux-Klan or other unlawful association.
These statements are sustained by the un?
varnished facts. And they tell a tale which
Governor Scott and Senator Robertson will do
well to ponder without delay. The negro mili?
tia, by their outrageous conduct, have caused
every act of violence which the State has
known. It was so in Union, where they
killed an inoffensive white man ; it was so in
Laurens and Chester, where they tired upon
the whites, who then had to choose between
self-defence and meekly holding out their
necks to the butcher. In Kershaw County,
where the negroes have made DO threaten?
ing demonstration, there is unbroken quiet,
and there has not been, and is not, .in the
county "any organization corresponding to
"the Ku-KIux Klan." For this statement
we have the unimpeachable authority of
General Kershaw. But General Kershaw
says, and here is the gist of the matter, "like
"causes produce like results, and therefore
"any demonstration on the part of Hie ne
"groes, and especially the armed militia,
"which would render our people apprehensive
"of an attack, would very probably induce
"oi-aanizations for defensive or preventive
"operations, and possibly lead to similar
"disastrous conflicts as ensued at Chester
The people, however, desire peace to-day
as heartily as they desired it before the
humiliating break-down of the Reform Party.
Anti General Kershaw with propriety de?
clares Lhat, in common with others similar?
ly situated, he "has done more to promote
"peace and order in South Carolina than all
"the so-called loyal people within her
"borders." General Kershaw is ready to
co-operate with Senator Robertson in - any
"feasible plan" for harmonizing society
here; hut lie entertaius "the settled cou
"victiou" that "lhere can never be that
"security which will ever preserve the peace
"of society, until some of the errors of Hie
"past be corrected and some of our griev
"atices be removed.". Class legislation
must be 'repealed. Taxpayers ought tobe
secured an adequate representation in the
Legislature. Honest and capable men must
be put iu olHce. This is the programme for
the future. ^Aiid, us regards the past, lhere
must be a plain statement of all the out
Standing liabilities ot the totale, so that thc
taxpayers may know for what part of the
public indebtedness they are legally or
As to the propriety of holding a Conven?
tion of influential citizens of the State, there
can be no question. The Chamber of Com?
merce and Board of Trade of Charleston
have Invited it. General Kershaw, in his re?
sponso to Senator Robertson, makes a simi?
lar proposition. We hope, then, that the tax?
payers of the several counties will hold coun?
ty meetings at an early day, so that the
May Convention*-shall truly represent tho
conservatism, the intelligence and the
wealth of the people. This, we presume,
j will meet with the approval of General Ker?
shaw and bis co-laborers in the cause of the
public. The people, by their representa?
tives, will?doubtless consider, in the Con?
vention, any suggestions which Senator
Robertson may make. What the people first
demand is, a practicable plan of relieving
themselves from an intolerable load of debt
and taxation; a plan, be it understood,
which will not leave the taxpayers at the
mercy of the Radical leaders. Mere prom?
ises will not, this time, satisfy the people.
GOVERNOR SCOTT has appointed. General
John D. Kennedy, of Kershaw, the Jury
Commissioner for that county. The Cam?
den Journal calla this "a streak of dawn.1'
The TrtbWM ?aa Sooth Carolina.
The New York Tribune, in a recent issue,
'Now the simple fact is that to-day, in large
portions o? the late Rebel States, it is unsafe
for a Northern man to execute a Federal office,
to teach a school, to maintain the principles of
the Renubllcan party."
Not a word of this statemput can be truth?
fully applied to South Carolina. There is no
part of this State where it is nnsafe for any
Northern man, or woman, to bold Federal
office, to teach school or to maintain Re?
publican principles. There is no Southern
State which has less sectional feeling, or less
hostility, to the general government
The Franking Privilege.
We should like to know what is the con?
sideration which induces Congressman J.
M. Cavanaugh, of Minnesota, to nse bis
name as a frank for printed circulars, ad?
dressed to citizens of Charleston, setting
forth the attractions of the "magnificent
"new hotel" at Lake George. These circu?
lars contain some interesting information
Jbr pleasure-seekers, and will probably serve
the purposes of the proprietors of the Ar?
lington at Washington, who are, also, the
happy owners of Ate Lake George caravan
sery. But it le rainer hard upon tbe public
when a member of Congress uses his official
privileges to further, in so indecen^ a man?
ner, a private speculation.
The Conneettcnt .Election-..
To-day an election takes place in Connec?
ticut for Governor and other State officers,
Congressmen, and members of the Legisla?
ture. The same Gubernatorial candidates
are in the field this year that have been ruu
ning for four years past, namely, Marshall
Jewell, Republican, and James E. English,
Democrat. The year before last Jewell bad
411. majority ; last year English's majority
was 843. Of tbe Congressional, delegation,.
! messie, ou'uiig, niHiugg ana Starkweather,
Republicans, and Barnum, Democrat, com?
prise the present delegation, and they have
all been renominated. The vote, two years
ago, stood us follows :
Districts. Rep- Dem. * Majority.
First.11,617, 10,881 736 Bop.
Second.13,102 12,678 424 Rep.
Third. 9,212 6,813 2,390 Bep.
Fourth.11,915 13,075 1,100 Dem.
The contest will doubtless be a close one,
and, judging from present appearances, the
Democrats are more likely to gain ground
than to Bhow any fulling off in strength. The
contest* however, will be close, and both
parties are "confident of victory."

whenever the vital powers seem to languish, or
there is any reason to suspect that Ute animal
functions essential to the sustenat lon and pu n?

Bot at present they desire to call attention
more especially to an extract from "The A m encan
Grocer," relative to the great Tea swindles which
are now being foisted upon the American peo
plc. All lovers of Tea should peruse the remarks
of the editor of the able Journal from which the
extract ls taken, and be warned in time.
Referring to the large Tea Companies of New
York City, the writer says:
"I have now In my possession a sample of bogus
Tea, without one Bingle leaf of the original Obi*
nese Herb to adulterate lt wltb. It was made for
a Monster House, sold to a Monster Ho o se, used
by a Monster House, and distributed by the base,
corrupt myrmidons of that self-same Monster
House throughout the United States of America
to do Us deadly work of gradually poisoning the
free, yet unprotected, people of your Great Re*
The citizens of Charleston who wish to avoid
using the poisonous compounds, too often sold
under the name of Tea, should take the precau?
tion of purchasing only from responsible houses,
which have an established reputation for deahng
in PURE TEAS.
For PURE TEAS, of all qualities and prices, go
