V [From tte Brooklyn Eagle.]
The alert, alive and immortal Columbia, S.
C., correspondent ol' the New York Sun sur?
passed himself In kis letter published lately.
He makes the paper ol" which he is the repre?
sentative take considerable literary liberty
with the names of Stuart, Sutphen & Co., car
Eet merchants on Fulton street, on the righo
and side going towards the city hall from the
ferry, and just two doors lrom the corner ot
Cranberry. These gentlemen are well known
In Brooklyn. They do a largo business. The
Arm is composed of gentlemen who are de?
servedly esteemed and trusted in this, city,
and no one was more surprised than them?
selves at the ?'peculiar juxtaposition"' in which
they find their names. * But let us *
SEE WUAT IS CHARGES
against Stuart, Sutphen & Co., In the Sun let?
ter ol to-day. The correspondent.seya that be
has just got a glimpse at the bills ior lurnlshing
the ?tale capitol ol' South Carolina, and that
the furniture was bought, ordered, introduced, ?
auAharged for by Mr. John B. Dennis, chair- j
man of the House committee*on refurnishing
the capitol. The correspondent says-that Den?
nis tried to keep bim from looking at the bills;
but he sot bold, ol the IQ through a secret:
source. "He found them charged to the firm of I
Stuart, Sutphen ? Co., of Brooklyn, N. Y., and
to the Arm of Nicoli- Davidson, of New York
City. Among the Items \vhich the correspond?
ent discovered, he enumerates the following :
Article. Rea! value. Price charged,
i clock.t.$:oo oo $485 uo
1 Clock. 75 CO 475 00
1 chandelier..1,000 oo 3,000 oo
20 mirrors...-....(each) ISO oo 350 00
1 crimson curtain. .-. 1,300 oo
l cornice. 865 co
120 spittoons. 960 oo
The estimated real value in the case of the
article of which the real value is omitted from
the above table, is considerably less tMh/i one
third of the "price charged" for them* in the
same lanie. The correspondent also says that
Stuart Sutphen. (moaning Stuart <fc Sutphen)
ol Brooklyn,.' have, furnished carpets
enough at i'l 50 a yard to flt out every private
bouse In ' Columbia." He then goes on to de?
scribe sundry diversions of the negro legisla?
tors?, and winds up by saying that the whole
bill lor refurnishing the Statehouse is $92
Believing that Messrs. Stuart, Sutphen & Co.
could and would be eager to throw some light
on this transaction, a representative of the
Eagle proceeded to their store this afternoon
. to see and learn what they hud lo communi?
cate on their own account. To this end, refer?
ence was had to Mr. Hardenburgs of the Arm,
a well known gentleman of Brooklyn, and an
honored member of the board ol education.
Tlie following interview will be read with in?
INTERVIEW WITH STCAP.T, SUTPHEN i CO.
Eagle. I have called. Mr. Hardenburgb, to
flq? if yon were willing to make any state?
ments In reference to the Sun statement of the
Items in the bill rendered by Captain John B.
Dennis, of Columbia, for articles contributed
by your firm and others to the refurnishing of
the Statehouse of South Carolina.
Mr. Hardenburgb. Certainly, sir; but what
is the Sun article ? Let me see.
Here Mr. Hardenburgh took out of his
pocket a Sun, ot Saturday. It had nothing In
It in reference to the matter, but the Eagle
representative read to him the letter ol -A.
P.," in the Sun of to-day, whereupon Mr. Har?
denburgh, speaking to that letter, said:
In the first place, the Sun says the total cf
the bill is $92,500. Now, the bill of this firm is
$21,294 69, all told; the bills of Nicol <fc David?
son are two, one for less than $21,000, the
other lor about $2000 odd. The whole of the
bills actually charged by us (that ls, by both
firms) is less than $00.000. How $92,500 car
be said to be charged, I do not nncierstann.
Eagle. Could lhere be such a tbitig as Stuart
*<k Sutphen and Nicol t Davidson charging the
reasonable' amounts you mention, and then
for ihe legislative offl.ers to charge the State
$92,500, paying you the face of your bills and
pocketing the remainder ?
Mr. Hardenburgb. Ol that I leave you to
Judge. Tile way of it, so fur as we are con?
cerned, ls this : Last summer I was on duly In
the store. Mr. Stuart was among the Thous?
and Islands. Mr. Sutphen was also away. I
wish you to know that those gentlemen had
nothing lo do personally with these negotia?
tions. Ol' course ihey stand by my action,
but it was not their personal action. Mr. Den?
nis came to me and showed me an order from
Franklin J. Moses, speaker of the South Caro?
lina Assembly, and also signed by the Lieu
tenant-Gove.uor, saying that there had been
$125,000 appropriated for refurnishing the cap?
itol. He icanfccZ me to allow him a commission
on the order it he icould get us the job. He
was chairman of the committee on refurnishing
I til* not take at first to the idea of commission.
lt was not our usual way. I asked him Uwe
would be paid in cash or In State bonds. He
said in cash, and all we would have to do
would be to send in our bill when the woik
was done. After that we talked again about
commissions, and finally it was put at the usu?
al rate ol' ten per cent, or less. The work was
to be done by the 1st of November. I attended
to little else bul arranging the articles and get?
ting them shipped. They were in and ready
on time. I did not get the money as I expect?
ed, and I spent two months ol this winter, lrom
January 3 to March 3, In Columbia, trying to
fet my payment. What bills went In I do not
now. Fur fear ol being mls-l''.entifled with
such u thing as lobbying, I never went into the
capitol but twice all winter, and once was lo
see the candelar lighted up. The most I did
was to make jut my firm bill, $21,294 69, and lo
send it to tue Governor and to Mr, Dennis. I
was told alterward thu Hie bill appropriating
mouev for my bill, for Nicol & Davidson ?ind foi
other'bilis bail passed. I came home with the
lollowiug check :
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, JV/
COLUMBIA, S. C., February -, 1871. j >| :
To thc Treasurer of the State cf South Carolina:
Pay to J. B. Dennis, or order, twenty-one
thousand two hundred find ninety-four ?9-100
dollar*, for expenses ol' refuruisning and re?
fitting the Statehouse. F.J.MOSES,
Attei-t: A. O. Jones, Cleik. Speaker.
] put this check in the hands ol Henry Clews j
& Co., New York, ?or collection, and you see '
it is endorsed J. B. Dennie, Stuart .t Sutphen,
Henry Clews ?i Co., and Hardy Solomon. The
latter is president of the Slate Bank of South
Carolina, lt was protested with the statement
that uo funds so designed had been appro?
priated by the State or were in the State
treasury, "lt seems the Governor had vetoed
the bill for noproprialions after its pascase.
In that bill tue payment of my account and of
Nich6: & Davidson lind been provided for.
Eagle. So yon have not yet been paid ?'
Mr. Hardenburgh. No, sir; uot a cent; not
my expenses; not the money 1 advanced to
gel the things out of freight. Th J sum owing
on the.bili ls 321,291 09. It is a fair bill; a bili
wiiicb any one is at liberty to examine our
books to see is fair and just. " In regard lo the
$92.500 I know nothing; that is nearly twice
our bill atui Nicol & Davidson's put together,
us I have told you.
Air. Hardenburg!! also said that the carpets
. be furnished were thu exact quantity which
Mr. Dennis ordered; and thc curtain back of
the speaker s chair was furnished in accord?
ance with tho directions ol Mr. Dennis nud
the speaker himself, who were np North last
Bummer, and who lett directions with Mr. Hur
denburgh what kiud ol curtain was needed.
He wont over the curtain item by item-thirty
yards of silk fringe al $9 50 u yard; a lull piece
ol brocateile at nearly $12 a yur.i in geld; tas?
sels a: $l? 50 a pair. <fcc.. all paid for by Mr.
Hardenburgh w the New York, market. Tne
worst tiling about the case is thai Ur. Harden?
burgh paid cash for the go xis he furnished,
cash ior their shipping ano. freight, casi for
putting them up, and is now denied even the
payment ofthe bill, which is just, and the bill
itself seems to have been doubled by the leg's
lative committee, not lor his benefit, but fur
SOME or THE WORTHIES.
From the South Carolina papers we learn
that John B. Deunis lives in Columbia; is elect?
ed a member ot the Legislature from Charles?
ton, having boarded at the Mills House a week,
in order to be uble to say that he represents
It is only fdr to Dennis to say that. Mr. Har
ti*mburgh fouutl him all square in his dealings
with tym. No one who knows Mr. H., or who
! tries lo deal with him, would venturi on any?
thing pot square it expectation cf his co-ope

THE CLARENDON TROUBLE.
CIRCUMSTANCES OF THE MURDER
How the Negro Mob Marched to 3Ian?
tiing and Marched Away Again.
[From the Clarendon Pres'.]
Peter J. Lemon, (colored,) county commis
eioner, was found dead in his buggy, at a
branch near Fellowship Church,' on Thursday
morning, the 20th Inst. He had been to Man?
ning the day before, 19th inst., and had start?
ed home some time belore sunset. When
found he was lying in the foot of the buggy
perfectly dead, the horse having re?
mained attached to the buggy the entire
night, at or very near the spot where the
murder occurred. It was supposed that he
was shot about or probably a little before sun?
set, by parlies concealed in thc edge of the
brandi, as tracks were lound in that locality.
Coroner James M. Gamble, with a Jury ol In-'
quest, repaired promptly to tho spot, but
nothing could be elicited save that the de?
ceased came to his death by reasons of gun?
shot wounds indicted by parties unknown.
Upon his person were found twenty-one
buckshot wounds, ranging from the forehead
to the knees-the large majority of which
wounds would have proved mortal. It was a
terrible deed and deeply to be regretted, as
political capital is ever manufactured out ol' |
these occurrences by our enemies to the dis?
favor of the whites. There is no evidence
as to who thc perpetrators of the deed
are. It is true that - the only . ap?
proach to evidence which we have up
to this moment been able to gather wus from
a colored witness (and a Republican) on the
second inquest which occurred iast Monday
that he had heard a colored man, now a refu?
gee from justice, supposed to be skulking
about here in the woods, threaten Peter J.
Lemon's life. Whether this individual carried
out his threat or not, we are unable to form an
opinion: but o? one thing we are certain, that
Die Whole affair has engendered some bud blood
in our district, which, but for the fortitude and
promptness ol' the white people in meeting lt,
would have been productive ol much evil. The
body ol Lemon was burled on Friday on San
tee where the deceased lived. At his "funeral lt
was proposed by some of tho infuriated ne?
groes, upon mischiel bent. Ihut-they would or?
ganize a large force and march to Maoning
next da}, take the town, terrify the women
and children, and insult and ill use the white
men on account of Lemon's death. In ac?
cordance with tili.1, programme tim ;'ariny of
occupai ion,*' led by the valorous Colonel Oli?
ver Gailliard (negro.) commenced the forward
movement against the doomed city on Satur?
day morning. The citizens were apprised very
soon ol their coming, and in a short time per?
sons in the country were notified ol' the hos?
tile demonstrations taking place. Before
many hours had elapsed, a number ol white
Citizens, variously est ?muled ut from three to
four hundred, rallied to the defence of the
town, lully prepared to give ihem a warm re
ceptlon, but to act on tho delensive un
til the negroes should commit the first
overt acc. The rurce ol negroes; hearing
of the preparation made to receive them,
wisely concluded to cull a halt when on. the
suburbs of the town, and after some parleying
Colonel Gailliard and a squad came In only
partially armed und commenced an altercation
with one Egbert Nelson (colored R?pubiican )
lor the great and mighty reason that said
Egbert was supposed lo be "rejoicing over
Lemon's death," and had, moreover, written
Lemon a letter to come to town on the day In
which he was killed. Upon this slight and un
saUsfactbrj evidence it wus demanded that
Egbert should be given up to an infuriated
mob, which the whites refused to suffer done.
Finding that, Republican as Nelson is, that the
whiles were determined that he should have a
fair chance, and that everything shou'1 'ie
done in a legal way, they took their
departure, uttering curses both "loud and
deep against the town, and swearing
that they would come back in greater
('??roe on Un? following Monday and have it
.tut, in sucking and laying "everything In
ashes, iroin Maiming to Santee. Forewarned
was to be forearmed, and long before the sun
had reached its meridian splendor on Monduy
a large force of Several hundred citizens were
under arms in town, under comp?tent officers,
selected on the occasion, and again ready to
try conclusions with the redoubtable black
warriors, who seemed to have an itching lor
deeds ol martial glory. But "a change has
come over the spirit ot their dreams." They
were not us warlike as on the previous Satar
day. This time the negroes came in a more
pacific way, le"d by a negro uf more sense than
Colonel Gailliard. They came this lime with
very few arms, and If they had them at
all, did not bring them as lar as the church,
some three miles from town, where they
hailed, and the coroner held another inquest
as arranged the previous Saturday, ia view ol
further evidence which they deemed they had,
but which turned oui a failure. Coroner Gam
ble and other gentlemen from town went out,
btu found everything more pacilic uncl quiet
than we had reason to expect from the de
laonstnuions on Saturday. The second In?
quest having been held, the party of whites
returned to town, and the negroes to their
home on Santee, having concluded not to
enter Mur.ning under "lue glorious pomp and
circumstance of wur."
Our thanks are due to our friends and fel
'ow-cltizeus in Sumter, who, hearing that we
were in great straits, and a bloody drama
being enacted, sent ns special couriers to
know if we wuuled any assistance, anil prof?
fering several hundred men ai short notice

radical-change has been introduced in the prac?
tice of medicine. Physicians have ceased to tor?
ture and prostrate their patients. Instead of pull?
ing down, they build up; Instead or assaulting
nature, they assist her. Cupping, leechiug, blis?
tering, venesection, calomel, antimony, stuplfy
lng narcotics, and rasping purgative?, once the
favorite resources of the faculty, and now rarely
resorted to even by the most dogmatic members
of tbe profession. Thc old creed was that disease
was something which must be expelled by violent
artificial means, Irrespective of the wear and tear
of the vital organization In the p rocess. The new
creed recognizes the improvement of the general
health as essential to the cure or all local ailments.
Hence lt is that HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BIT-.

macy has ever brought to the assistance ol nature
in her scroggies with disease, has been cordially
approved by practitioners of the modern school.

portance, and thc celebrity or the standard luvlg

title which llOSTETTER'S BITTERS have fairly
earned by their long career or success,) ls mainly
due to Its efficiency as a protective preparation.
