TJBE CLOSE OE THE TRIAL-THE
Conflicting and Knotty Statements
Mr*. King Rowen's Views of the Prose?
cution-Sc i* and Incident*.
A Washington letter of Thursday last, to the
Baltimore Sun. says :
The Bowen bigamy case was resumed .this
morning, this being the third dav of the trial.
Judge Olin announced'that be would admit
the record of the divorce granted between C.
C. Bowen and Frances Bowen, in the City ot'
New York', in May,-1865, but would allow "the
validity of that decree of divorce to be attack?
ed on ihe ground of fraud or of want of Juris?
diction In the court by which It was granted.
The prosecution thereupon proceeded to at-,
tack the New Yuri record by Introducing tes?
timony tending to show that the record was
spurious. The record certified that the New
?oik suit was brought by S. P. Cushing as at?
torney; that the usual order ol publication had
been made in the New York Atlas and the New
York Transcript; that a reference lor ex?
amination of witnesses had been made to Mr.
Bernish, who had filed a report therein, and
that thereupon Judge Barnard had rendered
the deoTee of divorce*, To contradict this, the
government produced the proprietor of the
Atlas, who testified that no such order had
been published in that paper, and the foreman
ol'the Transcript, who gave like testimony as
to that journal. Files of both papers were ex?
hibited, and no such publications appeared.
Mr. dishing is dead, but his law partner, Mr.
Sickles, testified that Cushing, so far as he
knew, entered all his cases in the office dock?
et, and that no case of Bowen vs. Bowen was lo
be found lhere. Mr. Bernish, the al.'eged
referee, testified that he had no recollection
that such a case ever came before him. Mr.
Plum, the clerk who certified the record, tes?
tified that he did so without having seen the
original papers, and that the original papers
could not be found. An expert from the
treasury department examined the original
New York docket-book, and testified "ihat
the names "Chas. C." and "Frances" there?
in were written over erasures, but that
there were other names In the book also
written over erasures. In reply, the de?
fence brought a witness named Smith, who
testified that he worked with Bowen at
bricklaying in New York in 1S59 and '60, and
voted wiih him for Lincoln in 1 ?0; that he
afterwards was treated kindly by Bowen while
in a Southern prison, and, in return, when he
went back to New York, he paid Mr. Cushing
a S5f lee to go on with Bowen's divorce case.
On cross-examination, he descrioedJIr. dish?
ing asa tall, spare man, aged about sixty-five,
when witnesses, who knew Cushing well, tes?
tified that he was a short, thick-set man/ and
died when he was fifty-five. The defence in
trod?ced- testimony to show thal Bowen'had
not heard from his wife for five years, believed
she was dead, and consequently, under an act
of Congress of 1858 iu relation to bigamy,
was exempt irom punishment, even it bis
first wife had afterwards turned out to be liv?
ing. .To this the prosecution responded by
proving Lhat Mrs. Hicks-Bowen had never left
Augusta since her marriage; had many rela?
tives in public trust there, and that proper in?
quiry would readily have ascertained her
whereabouts. The evidence then closed.
The most noticeable feature of the trial was
an address by Mrs. Klng-Bowen, made before
she left the witness stand, where she had been
called to testily. She spoke in a silvery voice.
easily, and with little perceptible embarrass?
ment. She inveighed against the injustice
which was being done to her. She asked,'
when all the newspapers in the United States
were filled with notices ol her approaching
marriage, why was not something said of this
before; why was it all kept back to make mis?
fortune for her ? None but a fiend could so
have acted. If this woman had friends, was
it not their business to have made known their
i claims to my friends, especially when they
knew that inquiries were belrig made ou the
How Bowen Procured his Cert l ti cu te
The New York Sun of Friday says:
Some days ago a stranger entered the coun?
ty clerk's office, and asked fof a copy of a de?
cree of the Supreme Court divorcing the Hon.
Christopher C. Bawenjtrom Frances C. Bowen.
Mr. Piutnb, an attache of the county clerk's
office for the past ten years, waited upon Hie
stranger. Tho Btranger exhibited a copy of
the decree, apparently certified by Mr. Duryea,
oue o? the oldest clerks in Mr. Loew's office.
County Clerk Loew. has made it an imperative
rule that no certified copy of any decree shall
be made out in his office without a reference
to the- original on file In his office. The
stranger was in a great hurry. He said he
wanted the copy as Boon as possible to file in
a suit in qourt. Mr. Plumb, misled by the ap?
parent signature o? Mr. Duryea, merely refer?
red to bis Index book for January, 1665, and
lound the following record:
? Chris. C. Bowen
Frances c. Bowen.
Decree of Divorce.
On the strength of this entry. Mr. Plumb
flied out a duplicate copy o? the divorce. The
stranger left, after thankiug ihe courteous
c! erk. This duplicate copy was afterward pre?
sented in evidence In the trial of C. C. Bowen
on a charge of bigamy, in the Criminal Court
at Washington. Upon examining the index
book the day before yesterday, it was discover?
ed that a decree of divorce had been granted
to some Bowen in January; 1865. The Chris?
tian name of the parties bad been bunglingly
erased with a penknife, andih^ name of Chris.
C. and Frances C. had been written over ihe
A search was Immediately made for'tlie
original papers in the case, but they were not
to be lound. The county clerk believes that
they have been stolen, though he says it just
barely possible that they may have been mis?
laid. Mr. Plumb went to "Washington yester?
day with the Index book containing the altered
carnes. These books will be offered as evi?
dence against BoweD.
The county clerk Is entirely blameless ia this
matter. The duplicate copy was granted by
his subordinate. in direct violation of his in?
structions. The origina! duplicate, which was
apparently made ont by Mr. Duryea, was un?
doubtedly a forgery, spread before Mr. Plumb
to secure the new duplicate.
The New York Times furnishes some in
''"terestlng particulars of. the search in that city
by Assistant District Attorney A. B. Williams.
Esq., of Washington, especially detailed to
hunt up the NeW York records in the case.
The Times says :
The first thing Mr. "Williams discovered was
the absence ol any record ol the alleged de?
cree of divorce in- 18?5,. purporting to have
been gffanied by Justice' Barnard, on the
minutes of the Supreme Court, and when Mr.
Richard C. Besnlsh, the clerk , or the court,
was consulted he could not remember ever
having seen or heard ol such a* decree. Mr.
Purdy, assistant district attorney in New
York, who aided Mr. Williams, found that
there wejp no original papers on file at the
county clerk's office answering to those ex?
hibited at Washington, and that although the
docket of divorces at that office contained
what appeared to be an entry of such a de?
cree, the docket looked, on sharp scrutiny, as
if lt had been tampered with. The names ol
the entry corresponded to those of Christo?
pher C. and Frances Bowen, but the hand?
writing showed that the baptismal names,
which were originally entered, had been
erased, and thc others printed in their place.
^ The Times then goes on to give further
statements of the case, coinciding with the
testimony for the prosecution, and says:
The only natural conclusion to be formed
under the circumstances was that some de?
cree in which the final names of the divorced
parties were Bowen, had been on file at the
eounty clerk's office, ana had been stolen Irom
lr. the baptismal names being afterward
changed so as to read Christopher C. and
Frances Bowen. The fraud betrays the plot?
ting of some keen and unscrupulous divorce
lawyer, aided, lt is believed, by some one hav?
ing access to the divoree records. Mr. Wil?
liams lelt for . Washington Wednesday
evening, accompanied by several witnesses
living in this city, and provided with full evi?
dence ol the fraudulent character of the
decree presented by Bowen's counsel, which
will be Introduced m the case to-day by the

A TALK WITH ASHY JOSS SON.
What Ht Thinks of Vallandighams
Platform, Jr ff Davis's Speeches, and ef
Grant. Sherman, and Hancock.
AKnoxvlle letter in the Cincinnati Com?
mercial says :
The question was asked of Mr. Johnson what
he thought of the valiant! iah am depasture.
"I haven't read the entire platform." replied
he. "but fi om what I hear o? it. there are
some sensible points in it. But we must not
deparjc too much. So lo speak, there is as
much'danger in getting too far away as stay?
ing too near. There are middle-grounds which
it Ts the best policy to occupy. The trouble is
that some of our party want to accept-too
much, and others dont want to accept any?
thing. It should not be the polleys
of the Temocracy to threaten to use
loree against the reconstruction acts,
or against the recent amendments. There
ls a lawful and constitutional remedy
for every evil. Our party ls a party of
peace, ol law, of order. We want no violent
measures. In my opinion the letter of Frank
Blair to Broadhead at the eve of the last
Presidential campaign did a great deal of
harm. Wh.r ? Because it was so written a3 to.
be construed into a threat that in case the
Democracy came to power they would use
force against the reconstruction acts. Now,
we should not threaten force, nor any.hing
like it. There is a peaceable remedy, and
thal remedy ls in convincing the people that
the laet two amendments tb the constitution
and the reconstruction acts are wrong. It ls
within the province of the people "to alter
these things if they will. The true policy ls to
accept all these thing? as accomplished facts,
but at the samt* time leave ourselves free to
hereafter inge their abrogation at the bar of
reason and. natl ce. I have always had great
faith in tbe'jrood sense and intelligence ol' the
American people. We mu3t appeal to them
to remedy tiiese evils, but to do it in a law?
ful and constitutional way. Another amend?
ment can be adopted thai will do away-with
the evils ol the last two. I have no lal th in a
remedy through the courts. It must be dorie
at the bar ol the people. Therefore I look for
a remedy in the nu ure, and I am not going to
say, and no other Democrat sho;:ld say, that
he* accepts the reconstruction measures and
amendment? as finalities, and that no attempt
will be made in the future to get rid of them in
a lawful and peaceable mariner. We should
not commit ourselves to any such absurd doc?
trine. We should boldly proclaim that we ac?
cept these amendments and acts as the law ol'
the land no .v. but that we will hereafter use
every honorable means to convince the people
that they should be abrogated and repealed. If
the people will not do it, then of course lt can?
not be don';. But for us to say that we will
forever close our lips against these iniquities is
I asked H's. Johnson what he thought ol
General Sherman as a Democratic cominee lor
"Sherman.1 -aid he. "is a smart mau and a
shrewd man. There ls no doubt but what he
is looking forward to the Presidency, and 1f
he can't get it from one party he intends to
trom another. He is not very particular about
parties. lu course of time he expects to be
President, but he ls in no particular hurry
about it. His chief aim now :s not to lose his
popularity, and to be' ready when the golden
moment comes. He is a military mau, and
don't care much about parties. He is a good
deal as Grant was alter the close of ihe war.
That little fellow had quite a na tion ot going
with the Democracy for a while."
"He was formerly a Democrat, was he
"No, he wn.?n"t anything. He didn't haye
sense enough. He hus got no head of his own.
Saerman is a much smarter man than he. ns
you can imagine. Frequently 'hey have both '
come in to see me on business. Grant al wa. s
stood back and let Sherman do the talking.
The lillie fellow felt his inferiority, took a
back seat, and let Sherman transact the busi?
ness. Shem an ls a mao, while Grant is noth?
ing. Yes, slr, he is just nothing."
"But the Republicans will be apt to renomi?
nate bluh don't you think ?"
"Appearances indicate that they Will."
"They have got him and seem inclined to
hold on to him * .
"No," repiled Mr. Johnson, "he liasgot
them. They can't get rid ol him He is in
and intends to. remain in. He bas got the
patronage aol that infamous Ku-Klux bill to
aid him. Ttu.t Ku-Klux law is a damnable lu?
mmy. Tweniy years ago it would have shock?
ed the American people like electricity.''
II A.'." COCK FOR PRESIDENT.
"You think. Mr. Johnson, that there is no
prospect that the Democracy will take Sher?
"No, they w ill not be apt to take him. Gene?
rally speaking. I am opposed to a military
man on the ticket, but it it Is necessary that
we have one, why not take General Hancock?
He is a soldier, a statesman, a scholar, and a
gentleman. He ls a noble specimen of a man
every way ycu take him, physically or men?
tally. There ls no comparison between Graut
and nim. Gr?.m is no man; he ls nothing."
"It seems to me, Mr. Johnson, that the De?
mocracy have a golden opportunity to win
next year li they will act sensibly."
"Yes, so they have, as you say. if they .act
sensibly. Bm. will they ? There* are men in
the South, especially, who are continually
Committing blunders: Now, look at the
speech of Jeff. Davis, recently .made at Au?
gusta, in which he talks about the lost cause
and all such foolishness. That will be trumpet?
ed all over tl.? North, to frighten men away
lrom the Democratic party. I have no doubt
but what his Selma speech contributed much
to va-ds our defeat in Connecticut."

JOURNEYING. TO THE POLE.
CAPTAIS HALI'S SEW ARCTIC
The Exploring Ship "Polaris"-Inter,
ealing Details of her Equipment
The' Personnel of the. Expedition
Plan of Operations, dec, d*c.
The Washington Patriot gives the following
particulars in relation to the vessel and mem?
bers of the arctic expedition under Captain
Hail, which, it is expected, will sail within a
fortnight, with the object of oppning the way
into and examining the great polar basin:
THE EXPLORING SHIP.
The Polar!?, formerly the Periwinkle, is a
vessel belonging to Ihe government, but re?
built and iiiieil lor this exlribitlon Jn such a
manner as almost to be a new and very supe?
rior craft. She is about 400 tons measurement,
considerably larger than- the Advance, in
which Dr. Kane undertook his faiBQtis voyage,
and about the same size as the Germania,
which left Bremen two years aso on an expe?
dition lo the Arctic seas. She has been plank?
ed all over her sides with six inches ol solid
white oak limbers, and has throughout been
nearly doubled in strength; her bows being al?
most "a solid mass of timber, sheathed with
iron, and terminating in a sharp iron prow
with whicfi to. cut through the Ice. Her en
sine,- which 'was built some time ago at
Messrs. Nearie St Levy's works, in Philadel?
phia, ls exceedingly powerful and compact,
taking up but comparatively little space,
and being peculiarly adapted for hard and
severe work, with liitle danger of breaking
down or getting out of order; and the propel?
ler is arranged in such a manner, that it can
be unshipped and lilted up on deck, through a
shalt or "propeller well" in the stern, which is
a great advantage when the? vessel is under
sail or surrounded by floating ice. that might
easily damage the blades. And, even lu the
-worst case, a supply of extra blades has been
provided, so that if one should, by accident, be
broken, it can always be replaced. There is
also an extra rudder on board, tend several
suit? or soils and sets ol spars ol all dimen?
sions. Ol' the two boilers, one is supplied with
an apparatus to use whale oil ior the genera?
tion ol'?team, as this will, in all probability,
have to be relied upon when other fuel gives
oui;"notonly to furnish the propelling power,
but also to heat up the vessel throughout by
steam, which will, of course, be necessary as
soon a? the cold and wintry regions have been
A SINGULAR EQUIPMENT.
Steam will, however, merely be used as an
auxiliary, as the Polaris is riggi-d as a ibretop
sall schooner, and fully able to sail and steer
under canvas only. A novel and interesting
feature in lier construction is a new sort ot
liie-preserviug buoy, which is placed on the
outside of the vessel, in the stern, and can be
lowered Into the water by touching a spring,
which is placed near I lie pilot-house. By touch?
ing another spring, an eleen ic light, which is
fixed upon tne buoy about two feet nbove the
water. 13 ignited by sompletlag the circuit of
an electric current* from a galvanic battery on
board; and no matter how dark the night, or
how oosctire the Arctic winter, the buoy can
always be distinctly seen, amt Hie man who
has lalleu overboard wili know in what .'direc?
tion to swim for hop* and help. That this is
an important and valuable leature In the At?
tings and complement ol the vessel no one
can doubt, and it is well calculated to Inspire a
wholesome sense ol'security, and to save life
where other and less perfect apparatus would
r -.il to meet the emerg-ncy.
A CANVAS II OAT.
Another excellent ana peculiar part of her
ont tic is a canvas boat, the invention of Mr.
John Hegeman, ol Saratoga County, New
York, by "whom lt has beeu patented, and
from whichTJaptain_Hall?X4it?iSgreat results.
As yet bur one ot these bouts hos been recelv
ed. but another and smaller ont? will be added
before the vessel leaves New York. The boat
that we saw is 20 feet long, 4 feet wide and 2.
feet deep, has a carrying capacity ol 4 tons,
weighs oi;ly 250 pounds, and can carry with
perfect ease* and safely 20 men. It consists ol'
an Interior frame, built of hickory, and ash
woods, over which is stretched a canvas
cover ?tiut has been previously soaked In
a preparation to render ll perfectly wat?r
prooL-and the whole boat can be taken apart
and folded together in a space less than one
eighth of Ha original size, in abotu three min?
utes, and by the assistance of a c*. iple of men
only. When folded up it is perlectly flat, and
can be transported on a slfdge across the ice
without the least difficulty. When open waler
is reached, the order of things is exactly re?
versed-the boat ls unpacked" and spread out,
'and the sledge and its contents taken on
board, dog-team and all. As the usual num?
ber of dogs to"an Esquimaux sledge is fifteen,
and tour men can be carried lu lt with ease,
besides provisions,' Ac, this boat will often
have quite a miscellaneous freight, and growl?
ing and snarling, barking and biting, will at
times no doubt lurnish a unique, if not melodi?
ous accompaniment to ihe measured sound of
PEUSON'SEt, OF TnS EXPEDITION".
But now as to those who are goiug to be the
principals in this adventurous and dangerous
expedition. They are, all told, twenty-nine
men, as good and true as can be found any?
where. These ls not a man among them whose
qualities nod character have uot been well
tested, from the gallant captain (Town to the
cook. As Mr. Hall said: "Every one of them
is worth his weight in gold, and much more,
for they lorin a solid set that I can rely upon;
I kuow ii." '
The leader of the expedition and coinman
der-in-c!'.iei is, of course. Captain Hall; next in
command comes Cxptalu 3. O. Buddiuglon. of
New London, nu old whaling master of thirty
years'experience, twenty-one of which were
speul in Hie Davis's Strait and Baffin's Bay.
and no less than ten winters has this gallant
old salt seen high up among .the Icebergs,
where the sun is" below the horizon for more
than four months in succession.
The .second officer is Mr. H. C. Chester, also
a whaling man, ot twelve years' experience
among Alie Ice; 4tnd the third officer is Mr.
William .Morton, who was Dr. Kane's trusted
friend and compaulon, and is the only living
mortal to whom it was ever permitted to look
upon the open Polar sea. Mr. Emil Schuman
occupies the post of first engineer; and the
scientific corps will consist, of three gentlemen,
of one of whom, Dr. Emil Bissells. o? Heidel?
berg, Germany, we have already spoken in a
hornier notice in this paper. He wlil attend
the expedition as a surgeon-naturalist. A
suident Irom the observatory at Ann Arbor,
Mich., will probably be the astronomer; and
an officer of the signal service department will
be aboard In the capacity ol meteorologist.
Besides these, there will be a blacksmith,
carpenter, steward a:r.l fourteen sailors, be?
sides the Esquimaux interpreter Joe, and his
This latter interesting couple, with their lit?
tle daughter, deserve more than a passing
notice. "They are both genuine specimens ol
the Esquimaux, but having; been in constant
company .with Captain flail for eight years
past, they speak very good English, and have
acquired civilized manners. Joe ls a famous
hunter and "sealer," and his little wife ls an
accomplished woman in a "small" way, who
has considerable talent for languages and lor
music Their little daughter, who will accom?
pany them, is rive years'old, and has been for
some time at school in Connecticut, where her
parents ???ve been lately residing, the guests
ol Captain Boddington. They will joiu 'the
ship at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, and a nice
and cosy little cabin has been fitted up for the
exclusive use ot them and their child. Not?
withstanding their love of Captain Hall and
their attachment tb this country, Hiey are
glad to visit once more their native country,
or rather native fields of snow and ice; and
it is not?t all cen alu that they will again re?
turn with the expedition.
Although Captain Hali expects to accom?
plish his purpose, of penetrating into the great
Polar basin, lt snell a one really exists, and
visiting the North Pole, in less thau three
years, lt ls quite probable that-It may consume
? much lunger time, perhaps even four or five
years. The Polaris has, therefore, been pro?
visioned for four years, which can be extend?
ed to six with a little economy and Judicious
distribution ol rations, 'i he great staple ol
providions is the so-called "pemmican," whicn
ls composed ol' Ihree parts of selected dried
meat to one part ol Hie best suet, mixed with
some other ingredients. The lood is both
nourishing and wholesome, and. through the
absence ol salt, there is no danger of scurvy
that pestilence of Arctic travellers-to be
feared from its use. lt is packed in 45 pound
tin cans, hermetically sealed, and of this there
ls no less than 10,000 pounds stowed away in
the hold, the manufacture of which consumed
and condensed 23,000 pounds of ordinary beef
and 5,000 pounds of suet. Besides this, there
is any quantity o? dried and dessicated vegeta?
bles, such as potatoes, tomatoes, onions ,etc,
and a large stock of flour, biscuits, 6ugar,cof
lee, tea, condensed milk, canned fruits, and
all other necessaries for a protracted voyage?
Captain Hall, however, expects lo be able to
economize with these provisions to a very con?
siderable extent, by substituting in their place
Ihe meat of the reindeer, musk ox, walrus,
and other game of the regions taal-he israbout
Evervihing has been done to make the
quarters of holli crew and oiBcers as comfort?
able as the rather limited space would permit,
and the between-decks and cabins are perfect
models of cleanliness. The state-rooms, for
the offlcersand scientists, are plain, but gotten
gp In good and convenient style, and the
cabin alt is a perfect drawing-room in minia?
ture. Handsome chromos decorate the walls,
and a ?ne cabinet organ, a present lo Caplain
Hall from the Smith American Organ Manu?
facturing Company, o? Boston, promises cheer
and many remembrances o? "Home, Sweet
Home" during Hie long arctic night. A hand?
some carpet covers the floor, anti there Is an
air of calm comfort about .this Utile room that
could almost tempt the visitor to accompany
Captain Hall in his daring enterprise.
THE PLAS OF THE VOTAOE
will be 'first to New York, where Joe and Han?
nah will join the ship, awl inf m there to Sr.
John's, Newfoundland. wherefthe Polaris will
take on board a fresh supply*!' coal. From
lhere the roule w?l be to the Danish colonies
of Holsteinborg and L?vele, ort the west coast
of Greenland, and thence to the still .more
northerly Esquimaux settlements of Uper
naick and Disco, at one of which places a de-'
pot will be established. A government trans?
port has been detailed to accompany the expe?
dition as far as this, carrying coal, lumber and
oilier heavy articles !o this reserve station.
In August Captain Hall expects ;o be able- to
push up through Jones's Sound, as far as to
latitude SO or 81 degrees, wheTe winter quar?
ters' will oe established, and the dark and
dreary Arctic night passed, during which it is
impossible to pain further on. But, with early
'spring, or HS soon ns the weather permits, the
voyage will be continued until solid lund or
ice shall effectually stop further progress,
when the expedition will proceed on sledges,
lo be obtained from the Esquimaux tribes that
inhabit ?lils region. Their rough conveyances
are lound more suitable .0 the Circumstances,
and beti? In every respect, thun any that
could be mannfactured In more civilized coun
trtVs, and willi an abundance of tools.
Captain Hall ?nus on his former expeditions
travelled over 1000 miles In sledges, behind
dog teamsvand has lor twelve years been an
indefatigable traveller' and explorer of the Arc
lie sea?. On iwo differeut occasions helms
passed three and five years in succession
among the Icc. and lrom this, his third and
greatest attempt, he is.tfbtnident qi coming out
triumphant, if victory can be snatched 'from

lar story to the New York Sun :
A most beatitiltil conspiracy has just come to
light here, by which it was intended to seize
the State Government for the time being, and
enact ail sorta ot laws for the benefit ot- Hie
thieves around the Statehouse. It seems
that when the feet became, known that Gov
ernor Scott Intended visiting New York, sev?
eral ol' the Jackal?, who are constantly nos?
ing about, resolved to plan a coup 'd''tat'. Lle'n
lenant-Governor Banaler, Frank Mose?, Jr.,
speaker of the House, General Dennis, of the
furniture swindle, and a dozen others, resolv?
ed as soon as Scott had passed beyond the
borders of the Slate to issue a proclamation
over Ransler's name calling the Legislature
together, Impeach Scott for alleged malfeas?
ance ii. office, suspend him from office, und
puss the celebrated per diem bill which was
defeated In March last by Scott's veto. The
members are suffering for money. Many of
Hiern have spent their whole time since the
adjournment in Columbia; afraid to go back to
their constituencies. It was a beautiful pro?
ject. Hausier was to call in Hie Legislature
the same day Scott led. As nearly all ihe
memberB are In Columbia or near lt.- Speaker
Moses was to organize il the next day. On
the next day
ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT
were to have been Introduced, and Governor1
Scott suspended. Of course then they could I
afford to await the Governor's return, and in
the meantime, be being powerless, they could
nave passed the per diem stealing bill, the
Greenville Railroad bill, the furniture bill,
and hosts of others that were designed to
plunder the State.
Fortunately, ihe little game got bruited
abroad. Scott left the city lor Washington on
Wednesday last. On the morning of that day
a gentleman well known in the politics of the
State, and wbo now holds an office In the Ex?
ecutive Department, met Ransier in the
street. Says he:
"Look here, Ransler, what means this re?
pon I hear about taking possession ol the
State Government ? Let ?he tell you this-If
you and your associates cont?mplale any such
action as lhat, and yon succeed even ior an
hour in having yourself declared Goveruor ol'
this State, the whole top of your
HEAD WOULD BE 9HOT OFF
before you could say Jack Robinson, and so
would your associates be treated. Remember
that/ I am with you in politics, but I certain?
ly wouldn't be responsible for what may hap;
pen in the event ol' your earning out your
Ransier, who is a negro of tlie very worst
class, rather quailed belore this tirade of one ol
his own friends, and straightway the new turn
affairs had taken was commtfnicated to Mose?.
The two then thought the matter over, and
like a certain Caliiornia traveller ihat I have
read about, they came to the concludion that
they didn't care about ousting Scott "anyhow,
somehow or oilier," and so the whole p'roject
fell through. Next fall, however, at the regu?
lar session, lt ls more than likely that articles
of Impeachment will be Introduced. Scott
hits lallijp out with the Statehouse, gang, be?
cause of bis veto ol their swindling schemes,
and of his affiliation with the recent taxpavers'

A Herald interviewer makes Grant say the
treaty is perfectly satisfactory to him. It was
either this or' war, though he thin!c9 if he
could- have had his own way he could have
done belter. Every article was submitted to
him and approved by him, and each urtlcle
was likewise submitted to the Ministers of the
Queen, costing a great deal of money for tele?

therefore, practically ratified. On the pecuni?

question, likely any day to bring the two na?

changes: "There ls not a word of truth in
these statements. Mr. Fish will not leave the

in the c ?binet regarding Cuban affairs. There
has been no change regarding the Cuban

i . NEW TORE, June 1. ,
A howl has gone dp jrorn all ihe Republican
papers over Mr. Jefferson Davis's latest speech
at Allan ia, and the Democratic papers, seeiug
instinctively how much party capital the Re?
publicans can manufacture' put of lt, have-,
.made great haste to repudiate the speaker
and his sentiments. The speech was tele?
graphed In full irom Atlanta to the New York
Herald* the correspondent adding Illustrai! ;e,
comments, the substance of which being that,
the Southern people were ripe for another,
"rebellion," and that Mr. DavU was traversing
the South with incendiar}' speeches to Are t?e
Confederate heart. Since the Ku-Klux buga?
boo was pretty well exploded; 'the Radical
papers and orators have been at a loss whit
next to abuse tlie Democracy and'the. So'pihi
about, and "Jeff Davis Threatens a New Be
bellion," as they now give it In the head Unes,
Is a perfect Godsend. The speech ls cited lo
prove the insincerity of the Southern people
when tliey proiess to have submitted to tlie
arbitrament of arms, and to Justify disfran?
chisement and martial law, and further patts,
penalties and repressions.
Mr. Horace Greeley's tour through the
Southwest Is watch?d with great Interest. lie

account ol his sojourn among the alligators

dates, with his own sanction. He is wiiling LO
contest the Republican nomination with Presi?
dent, Grant, wnom he distrusts and despise.'.
Greeley Is very vain. - It would be no difficult
task for any flatterer to persuade him that his
chances for nomination and election are very
good. But he stands as much prospect ol
being President of the United States as he
does of Lord Mayor of London, or Emperor of
Germany. His avowed protectionism wou.'d
swamp him In every Western State, and even
if his party was in the majority in this State he
could not carry it, for the Conkllng iactlcn
hate him almost as much as they nate ins
Three members of two very prominent
Legitimist houses, who have been residing lu
this city l?r years, left for France very sud?
denly yesterday. A large crowd of aristocratic
old French 'gentlemen and ladles were at the
wharf-side to see them off when the steamer
started. This ls another straw showing the
way the wind blows across the Channel. The
scions of all ihe ancient noble families d'
France are flocking back to recover the;r
heritages. What soothsayer, in his wlldeiit
Uiglits a year ago, would have dared to prediut
thal Henrv V would ever sit upon the throne
of his ancestors ? It looks now very m .ich i s
ll the reaction from the Communistic madnet 8
would bring back to Paris the quiet, limping,
blo'nde old gentleman, who has been keeping
blB lillie court for so many years amid the
forests of Austria. France runs through the
gamut of governments.- It 1B quite reasonr.
ole to suppose that Napoleon and the Com?
mune, as well as the Bourbons, will again
have their days of sunshine.
Decoration Day ls growing to be as much of
a national institution hereabouts as Fourth cf
July. It was more observed this year lhaa
ever before, since the Idea was borrowed from
the Confederates of ihe South. A procession
was introduced inio the observances this time.
It followed a mock funeral car, and marched
down Broadway to Trinity Churchyard, where
services were held over General Phil Kearney's
grave, and thence by one of the Brooklyi
terries to Cypres? Hill Cemetery. At the lui?
ter place a scandalous scene occurred. Aller
Howers had been laid on the mounds of the
dead soldiers, religious and patriotic proceed?
ings were had. Tue Rev. Mr. Peniacoet, pas?
tor ol the Hunsome Place Baptist Church, of
Brooklyn, preached a sermon in which he saw
fit . to introduce comments upon Mr.
Jefferson - Davis's Atlanta speech, and to
berate the Democratic party therefor.
A large part of the audience wan
'greatly disgusted. Upon the platform, nexl
to the reverend politician sat the well known
General Jeff. C. Davis, of the United States
army, lately from his command In Alaska
Davis ls quick tempered, and when Pentecost
opened upon politics, he jumped up, ripping,
and swearing, and left the platform. During
the remainder ol the sermon he stood a little
distance off, ventilating his opinions of the
speaker to a sympathizing crowd.
There was a bustle in the New York County
clerk's office yesterday, for a messenger from
ihe district attorney, ol' Washington was search?
ing the records with great, baste lo ascertain
the genuineness of the documents by which
your Mr. C. C. Bowen claims to prove his di?
vorce from his wife Frances. A flaw was dis?
covered and lt was followed up with avidity.
Two hours' examination of records and lndivl
duals saiisded the aeent that Ihe document
produced by Bowen in court ls a forgery. He
wem flying back lo Washington by last nights
train. So Mr. Bowen ls to be bothered about
u matter of forgery as well as bigamy. The
New York Journals express the opinion that be
will be convicted, notwithstanding the lrantlc
efforts of his last victim to save him.
The grandest wedding ever seen in New
York wus celebrated last night. The daugh?

exclusive in New York, did not grace the
occasion with lis presence, but Ihe cream ol
