[Correspondence of the New York San.]
COLUMBIA, May 25.
The whole political ?atmosph?re m South
Carolina is sosurcharged with fraud and cor?
ruption that it would be a little singular i: now
and Ihen the sky did not darken and burst
forth in electric flashes o? crimination and're
crimination. These flashes always reveal the
pathway to a den of thieves, and your corres?
pondent, ever on the alert, has availed him?
self of the last of these outbreaks, and is now
prepared to give to the world a brie! sketch ol
one of the many swindles by which the people
of thi&State are bein" impoverished.
The Columbia and Greenville Railroad leads
from Columbia to Greenville, and ls 1-fO miles
in length. The financial condition o? the road
has from its completion been bad. and its
stock, the par value of which was $20 a share,
almost valueless. Dividends of course were
out of the question, and the bondholders
groaned in spirit as they looked at their un
proc clive securities. Dead carcasses always
attract vultures, and the delunct railroad com?
pany formed no exception to this rule. In the
summer of 1869, when the corporation was
seemingly in Its death throe?, the air became
blackened wiih these birds of prey. Hover?
ing about eager lor the final dissolution were
Parker, the State treasurer, who is a bird ol
most ravenous propensities; honest John Pat?
terson, whose talons are deep in everything
foul; the Hon. Timothy Hurley, a vulture ot
hue the blackest; the Hon. C. P. Leslie, a bird
whose plumage has ofttimes been besmeared
with public tilth; Dr. J. L. Neag'.e, the comp?
troller-general ol' the State, who has the keen?
est scent lor prey " ol any ol' the voracious
birds, and Uncle Joseph Crews, the great
poker player, who is always among the "very
first to light on a carcass, and who smiles com?
placently as he picks its bones.
THU FEAST OF THE VULTURES.
Besides these birds there were others who
came to the feast and watched eagerly for an
opportunity to gorge their maws from the Bul
. ferlcg corporation. Tue first effort ol the vul?
tures to obtain possession of the railway car?
cass was made in September, 1SC9. Ageuts
were appointed throughout the State lo buy
up from the discouraged and impoverished
widow and orphan the lew shares of the depre?
ciated stock each might hold. To avoid a sud?
den rise in thc shares, which might prevent
the consummation ol' the vultures' schemes,
these agents were selected with a view to their
respectability and position in the community
in which they resided. For the northern part
ol the state were chosen ex-Governor (now
judge) James L. Orr and the Hon Jacob P.
Reed, and as the greater portion ol' th*? stock
was held in thal section, the gemlemen-named
were made the principal agents. In the course
ol a month every available share of the- Green?
ville stock was in the hands ol the Statehouse
Ring, at prices varying from 75 cents lo $3 a
share. The stock so purchased was paid for
with funds raised by the hypothecation ol
South Carolina bonds in the New York banks,
and the amount paid in <he purchase was
about $240,000. The floating stock thus pur?
chased, ihe vultures began to think ot' a divi?
sion of the prey, and a turning over of the car?
cass for a new feast, i. e., the reorganization of
the Greenville Company with ihe darkest ot
the birds In the directory of the road. To their
consternation they lound that
THEY HADN'T EATEN ENOUGH
ol' the available side to enable ihem to turn it
over. They had not secured a controlling in?
terest in thc stock. What was to be done?
The money already borrowed from the State
must be made good or exposure was sure to
follow. This could not be done without the
consummation ol' their plans. In this junc?
ture a happy thought struck the Hon. Niles G.
Parker. Mr. Parker croaked and the other
vultures flapped their wings and gathered
around to hear it. The State owned 10,000
shares ol the stock, which by existing law it
was not empowered to sell.
"The State must sell her stock, and she
must, ol course, sell it to us," said the Hon.
Niles G., to which ihe other vultures again
flapped their wings in token of assent. .
"Bur," said an innocent-looking bird In the
background, "how are we io make the State
sell the stock when she ls iorbidden by law to
do it ?''
"pshaw ! you're green," said the Hon. Niles
G.? "Don't we own the Legislature, and can't
we bribe it to pass a law for onr benefit ?"'
The birds again flapped their wings and
croaked their delight at this strategy. Before
going further, however, the new company
was organized In -twelve shares ol ?20,000
each, o; which Parker took 24 $50.000; Les?
lie. 2i; Uncle Joseph Crews, 1"; i> eagle, 1; and
olhefs in like proportion. Some vt the vul?
tures came near being
LEFT OUT IN TUE COLD
by the rapacity of ihe others, and had to be
content with filths and tenibs of shores. Of
course thia organization was but informal, and
was only put forth as the basis upon which the
Anal divvy should be made.
And now for ihe Leglslaiure. Leslie and
Whittemore, the cadetship bird, look charge
ol ibis part ol' Ihe programme. They drew up
what they cailed a "Funding Mir lo enable
the State lo dispose of certain securities held
as a k.nd of collateral for advances made years
ugo to different corporations. Ol'course in ihe
pteamble Ihe comparative worthlessness ol'
ihese stocks was duly set forth, and the great
advantages to accrue Irom their sale were, ex?
patiated upon by the sleek Wbittemere, and
were received by the mystified nestor's with
months open and eyes lolling. Broad black
palms were rubbed on blacker knees in loken
of the legislative approval, as ihe noble sena?
tor lrom Darlington resumed his seat, and the
bill went to its second reading without a mur?
mur. Alas! when it came up lor its final pas?
sage ii was discovered that
SOMEBODY HAD PEACHED.
The legislative negro had discovered some?
thing akin io himself in the lenee. He straight?
way resolved that the bill musl be killed un?
less he was seeu-although by whom he was
expected to be looked at was u mys ery.
There was money in the bill, and it couldn't
go through-unless he had his stake, and ii
didn't go through that day at least. '1 hut
night the vultures gathered In their nest and
sat in solemn conclave. The A. I>. Barber
(who, by the way, is a neirrc.) ol'the South
Carolina Legislature was sent lur.
"Mr. Purvis," said the Hon. Stale Treasurer,
"this bill must go through."
"So I suppose," said the antitype of the great
"How much will it cost ?" said Niles.
"Don't know," was the response; "haven't
canvassed yet. Guess they'll want a thousand
"Find ouC will you ?" said the great. Parker,
and the fugleman withdrew.
J/EATHERING TUE LK.G1SLAT1VE NEST.
This was near the close ol the session ol'
69-70. The leg?K!stive maw hau'nt been well
lided. It craved spoils, and the maw offered
itself cheap. "Foriy-flve ihousund dollars
would secure the passage ot the law," said the
sub-canvassers ol the two huii?es, and so re?
ported the Lobby Klug to ihe vultures.
Next day the Hon. Niles G.Parker started
for New York. Telegrams were >enl lrom New
York to this place asking delay IQ the adjourn?
ment. Every effort was made to raise Hie
money, and "finally, after weeks of doubt and
anxiety, the cash was secured and safely lodg?
ed In Parker's carpet-hag. Pending this, how?
ever, the Legislature became clamorous. The
members threatened lo adjourn without pass?
ing the bill unless Parker hurried up with the
money. Finally, while on his way with the
greenbacks, to appease the wraih of the im?
patient members, he sent telegrams over lue
assumed name ol E. Perkins from almost every
station: "For God's sake don't adjourn."
"I'VE GOT TUE MONEY !:'
They didn't adjourn, and finally Parker
redbed this eily. $18.000 were raised lu New
York upon the hypothecation ol' Stale bonds;
$45.000 were paid to th? Legislature, and dis?
tributed the night before the adjournment,
and $;:000 were paid to Parker fur his truuble
in coing to New York. Of course the landing
bill went through flying. By its terms, the
State was authorized to sell all its securities
in certain corporations. The Governor, the
comptroller-g?ueral and the State treasurer
were appointed a board tc effect their sale.
The board was to exercise its own judgment
as to whether the securities should be sold at
public or private sale, and also as to the terms
ol pavmeut; 2.cd, by a singular omission, noth?
ing was said shout the price to be exacted for
these securities. The board could seil them
tor what lt pleased, and lt did. It pleased the
board to sel the 10,000 shares o? Greenville
Railroad stocii the first thing for S-l 0? a share,
when it was then bringing in Charleston,
owing to bull influences, over S7 a shure. lt
didn't please the board to sell the stock ol any
other corporations just then, and indeed lt
never ha? sin :e, thus proving that the whole
object of the celebrated funding bill, which
was bribed through thc Legislature, was noth?
ing more thaa a scheme to enuble a gang ol
thieves to possess themselves of the stock of
one corporation. .Of course the sale of this
stock was ?
A DUMMY SALE.
or a sell on the taxpayers. Not a man in
South Carolina but believes that. The $405,000
supposed to Lave been received from the sale
of the State's stock, where is it? Eveil echo
cannot answer where. When the vultures had
to borrow from the Slate herself to raise the
money first expended, it ?9 not likely that
they would be particular to pay for ber own
stock. This part of the transaction, however, .]
still remains in darkness, und it will probably
be lelt to a anare taxpayers7 convention to
fathom. Noihing now remained bu: to com?
plete the swindle by proclaiming the new or?
ganization. The board ot directors were ihe
original man pulators of the scheme. A stool
pigeon name:! Busn, imported to give respect?
ability to the new regime, was made presi?
dent, honest John Patterson, vice-president,
Niles G. Parter, secretary, and G. W. Water?
man, representing Governor Scott's interest,
was.made treasurer. The directors were the
above, and Tim Hurley, of Hurley ville on
Congarce, Uncle Joseph Crew?, J. L. Neagle.
the compiro.ler, the Hon. C. P. Leslie, e? Ul
nmne genus. Being thus secured in full pos?
se ;slon ol thu roud, without a dollars expense
?with a depth of gratitude rarely attained by
birds ol thai strip?*, sci about rewarding the
faithful. The lobby agents, for their ac?
tivity in securing the p-issage ol' the funding
bili, were awarded places in the uew company
with large salaries mid little work. Other
friends ot the scheme were rewarded in mate?
rial ways, and everything thenceforward went
on serenely except the road Itself. That paid
no better tin 1er the new management than the
old. This made no difference, however, to the
rauiority ol'the stockholders. They didn't get
hold of. the stock for dividends. Their game
was higher. Last winter the spotless directors
asked the Legislature to grant
. A LOAN TO TUE ROAD OF TWO MILLIONS.
It waa too much. The House bolts every?
thing at one gulp, and so it bolted this; but
the Senate shrank aghast. Even Whittemore
and Leslie turned pale when they saw the con?
templated fraud. Everybody understood why
the money was wanted, L e., to pay off the
[ amount already borrowed from Hie treasury
and pocket whatever might remain-a sort ol'
borrowing 1 rom Peter to pay Paul process,
particularly interesting to taxpayers. That
swindle did not go through, although it passed
the House and came to its second rvading In
BEFCiRE IT COULD BE KU LED.
Since then matters have been going from
bad lo wors?, until now the directors aro ne?
gotiating for the sale of the entire concern to
the South' Carolina Railroad Company, at rt
handsome p rout of course over the original
investment.. It is estimated that twelve "men
will divide not less than two millions of dollars
when this sr.le shall.have been effected, uud.
all on a capli al ol $0000. Such is earpet-bag

Thc Govt-mot's Interview with the
Offitc-Ho.de r's Candidat e- Winn
Grant Wanted And What Grant
Didn't Get-Governor Scott'* Opinion
of the Pitsident.
[Correspondence of the Sew York Sun.]
In view ol the President's recent proclama?
tion dedaring South Carolina In a state of In?
surrection, Lnd warning the insurgents to dis?
perse wiihiii twenty days, the interview be?
tween (taverner Scott of that State and'the
Pi -?slddont, whiChtookr *ce on Saturday, had
a peculiar nlgni?cance. The Governor said
the e had beeu no disturbance of the public
peace in South Carolina, and mildly insinuated
that the blood and thunder proclamation was
as unnecessary as it was ineffective.
GR;.N7 AIDINO THE KU-KLUX.
What the Governor said he needed to insure
obedience to the laws was a Detter class of men
in the Federal offices In the State. For in?
stance, he wauled a new United States mar?
shal appoicted-one who would seel hat the
laws were obeyed,.and who would arrest all
offenders. The Governor said he did not wish
martial law. but he thought the presence of a
few troops might be well to aid the marshal In
arrestlugIllicit whiskey men and other offen?
ders against, the Federal laws. The Governor | n>
told the President that everybody in South
Carolina tangoed at his proclamation, for the
simple reason that it was based on a state of
affairs thai did not exist. There was no in?
surrection in that State, nor wus there any?
thing iike un organized movement to create a
breuch ol the peace.
A BIO IITXT TO GOVERNOR SCOTT.
The President listened to all these things
with a looc of ihe most stolid Indifference.
When the Governor had finished speakiug he
asked him what he wanted him (thePresident)
to do. Wilh a look of surprise, Scott said :
"Why, ye ur Excellency, I have just been tell?
ing you. J waul you to make a new set of ap?
pointments in South Carolina. 1 want men
who are capable of enforcing the civil law, and
who have nerve enough to arrest offenders
ugainst the same.
"Humph !" remarked bis Exce?encv, "I
hardly kut.w what to do. Have you' seen
these ?" And the President drew from his
drawc-r a copy of resolutions passed by the
Republican State central commut?e, endors?
ing President Grams administration, aud de?
claring in favor of his renomination.
The President read them over willi a slow,
drawling accent, while Scott, who knew just
what they were and what lt all meant, squirm?
ed in his seat ?ike an impatient schoolboy.
When he had got through, the President said :
"Now, what did you say you wanted me to
Utterly disgusted with the (rifling nature ol
this question, Scott reheated his views,
"Humph !"' said t President. How do
your people feel down lhere in regard to the
next Presidency !"
"Well, sir.'-- said Scott, "to tell yon the
truth, we iaven"t thought much about lt We
have hard a hard time to keep the party from
going to pieces. You see the party in South
Carolina is so.filled up with thieves that we
have to keep our eyes opeu or the whole Stale
would be carried off."
THE PRESIDENT SMILED
at this and asked if the thieves were not all
driven om. yet. Alter some .arther conversa?
tion the Governor withdrew. Coming down
Pennsylvania avenue, Scott met a lrleud wno
knew ol the errand he had been on. Said the
"Well, Governor, how did you make out ?"
"Wby,': answered Scott, "I didn't make out
anything. Do you know that I begiti lo think
thal the reports 1 have heard about thal man's
want ol capacity are all true ? Why, 1 tallied
foran hair trying to make him see a eenuin
point, and I'll be hanged it' I could beal lt into
bis head to save me. The truth is, the poor
fool don't think ol anything bul renomination.
Thai's lh?; burdeu of his thoughts by day and
nis dreams by night. If thu realization of his
dreams depended upon South Carolina, he
would stand about as much chance ol bein"
President again as I do. He read over a lot of ni
resolutions there, and evidently wanted me to sc
promise I bat the South Carolina Republicans ru
would puss a similar set. They'd see him in iv
Tophet first. My whole interview wilh him
was j!;st so much time throwu away. I might
as well have lalked lo a stick."
And with this the Governor stalked off in

Reporter. Yours is a bad predicament,

Mr. Orr. Of the other Slates of the South
and their condition I am not very well inform?

A POLITICAL PHILOSOPHER,

Reporter. Governor. I amalad you told me
that. An American political philosopher who
does not care about affairs outside of his own
Slate is a rara avis. Your opinion on the out?
look for the Presiden;ia! conu'et in 1872 will be
of great value.
Mr. Orr. Well,, well ! I don't know much
about what Is going on up here. I suppose
Grant arti! be renominated by his party; in?
deed, J leel very certain of IL
Reporter. Why do yon think so
Mr. Orr. He has the inside track now, and
his war record ls not yet'threadbare. No
other general on that side can be put up
against him, and there is no civilian ot prom?
inence in the party who could shove him out
of the way. The Republicans could not suc?
ceed in electing a man who did not serve In
the war as a successful general. If they nomi?
nated a civilian they would have to part with
their heaviest pieces of artillery.
Reporter. But suppose.Grant is set aside in
tile convention and somebody else nominated?
WHAT TH EX \.
Mr. Orr. What then ? Defeat for the Re?
publicans, and, with moderation and wisdom,
an overwhelming victory fon the Democrats.
With Grant in the field the contest would be
doubtful, but with any other Republicanas the
slandnrd bearer of the party the Democrats
would win. But I have no failli in ihe Demo?
crats. They have no great men now; they arc
a lot of confounded idiots, that don't know
what they are about. It is aslikely as not that
in their nominating convention they will put
a fresh secession plank In their platform, put
up some old dummy ol' bygone days, and go
home to be licked like hell at the polls. They
had a fair chance lust time, and I among
others urged them to take advantage of lt. Ii
Instead ol nominating our fine old friend Sey
mour-with his draft riot reputation and the
absurd platform they give him to s'and on
they had put up Chase, Ihe country would have
been carried lor peace and Democracy. ?
voted lor Seymour and Blair myself, very un?
willingly, I confess, especially for Blair-I
went with the crowd. The Wue policy for the
Democracy Is to nominate for ihe presidency
some good-and tried Democrat wiih a sound
war record, not necessarily a soldier, if the
Republicans put up a civilian, but a prominent
general in case
GRANT TS IX TUE HELD.
Perhaps it would be better In any case to no?
minate a civilian.
Reporter How would Sherman suit "you
:lown South as ihe nominee of the Democratic
Mr. Orr. He would not suit us at ail. He is
?ot forgotten in .South Carolina. He is nn

There has been a great deal said lately, f :om
almost every section of the county, of tile de?
struction of wheat by rust. We had wei! nigh,
says the Spartan, concluded that the crop
wouid be almost a failure, but we have, ina

ravages ol' the rust were not so great as was
expected. Harvest has commenced with us.

We are iuformed, says the Spartan, that
during lost week several" soldiers of the garri?

having served their lerms of enlistment. We
also learn that there were six desertions dur?

ed were not unmindlul of the anticipated re?
duction in pay, which is from $16 to $13 per
month for infantry and a corresponding re?
duction of $3 per month in other branches of
the service. This.we learn, is to take effect, the
30th Instant. We will, in this connection, lake
occasion to say that Colonel Myers ano bis

disciplined body of soldiers that.have yet Deen

BOWEN'S TB J AX. EOE BIGAMY.
The New York Divorce Probably Void.'
A Washington letter bf Tuesday to the Bal?
timore Sun says:
Thesecond bigamy case of CC. Bowen was '
tried to-day beiore Judge Olin; holding the
'Criminal Court. A jury was: promptly ob?
tained. D. Dudley Field, of New York, H. T.
Merrick, A. G. Riddle and Judge Moore, of
this district, appeared for Bowen, and Judge
Fisher and Hr. Harrington for the ' United -
States. -The prosecution proved Bowen's mar- .
riage to Miss Frances Hicks, in October, 1852,
at Augusta, Ga., and that she was living when
he married In August, 1870, in Washington. -
Mrs. Hlcks-Bowen was present, and was
identified by one ol' the wltneeses as the per?
son Bowen bad married. She is a sharp-fea?
tured lady, was dressed in gray, and wore
glasses. Some of the witnesses had not seen
Bowen for fifteen years, but Identified him.
Among the witnesses were the brother
of Mrs. Hlcks-Bowen, her aunt, the ordi?
nary of Richmond County, <}&.. who pro
duced his documents, ic The defence im?
mediately -offered a divorce from Hrs.
Bowen nee Hicks, obtained in New York. The
prosecntlon offered to show that at the date
oftbat divorce Bowen was In the Confederate
army or In prison, and exhibited a divorce
gotten by him from Mrs. Hicks Bowen, in
New Haven. Connecticut, two weeks alter his
last marriage. They also contended that un?
der recent decisions ot the Supreme Court a ;
decree made in New York during the war
against a resident within the Insurrectionary
States was void, unless notice of the suit was
brought home to the defendant. Before de?
ciding this question the court adjourned until
to morrow morning. Judge Olin thought if
the delendant was not a citizen of New York,
and ran away from this woman when the war
was going on and obtained the decree, that
the publication was void. He wished to be
satisfied on the points whether such publica?
Hon was void, and whether or not there was
fraud. A nolle pros, was entered In the Parks
Bowen case, which has been once tried.
WASHINGTON, Thursday, June 1.
In the Bowen case, to-day, Judge Olin de?
cided that the New York record could be at?
tacked, first, for fraud, second, for want of
Jurisdiction. David N. Cooper, an expert,
swore there were erasures under Chris. C. and
Frances, and S. B. Cushlng, the witness, found
several other erasures, but no attempt to con?
ceal. Anson Herrick produced files of his
paper, but found no such advertisement as a
notice of C. C. Bowen to Frances Bowen. The
referee of the court swore no such case had
been referred to him In 1865, nor was there
any such case on Judge Barrett's docket.
