THE D?YASM OF ENGLAND.
THE LONDON TIMES SERVES CTE A BIT |
OF FUTURE HISTOTtT.
The Battle of Dorking Answered In
Apparently to counteract the influence of
"The Battle of Dorking," which was calcula?
ted to excite the apprehensions of the English
respecting their ability at a future day to re?
sista hostile invasion, the London Times of
the 22d of June publishes "The Second Ar?
mada, a Chapter of Future History," of which
the following are extracts:
Shortly alter the close ol tba war between
France and Germany In 1871, the English
alarmists seemed unreasonable to an extent
that'verged on foolishness. Never was there
a period when, to ali outward seeming, an in?
vasion of England was less probable or feasi?
ble. France was stricken down and disabled.
We bad amicably arranged our differences
with the United States, aaa the greatest mili?
tary nation of the Continent had apparently
neither the disposition nor the power to be?
come a formidable assailant o? our indepen?
dence. If ever there was a country whose in?
terests and constitution pointed to a pacific
policy, lt was united Germany. She required
peace to consolidate her empire, and she
could not make war without calling the mer?
cantile man from his desk, the professional or
literary man from his study, the shopkeeper
from his counter, and the agriculturist irom
- the plough. Then, all-powertul on land, she
was powerless on the seas.- A contest be?
tween her and the maritime population of an
island must resemble a contest between a dog
and a fish, in which neither could quit. its pro
f?er element lor aggressive purposes without
m minent risk of discomfiture or destruction.
Germany would no more think of sending an
armament across the North Sea to Invade
England than England would think of landing
an army at Hamburg to advance on Berlin.
Nor was the navy of the United States suffi?
ciently strong in sea-going lron-clads, like the
Minotaur or Monarch, to cross the Atlantic
and encounter the English in their own
waters. So thought and argued the wise men
of England in 1871. They thought and argued
well, but wise men, however well they argue,
will sometimes turn out- wrong, and they
turned out substantially wrong in this in?
stance-as wrong as the late lamented Cob?
den when he made the tour of Europe to an?
nounce that, for all time to come, free trade
had rendered war a moral impossibility. Un?
luckily, mankind are more swayed by their
passions, their prejudices, their caprices and
their vanity than by their well-understood in?
terests; and so it fell out that, in the year
1874, the greatest of tho continental powers,
having taken umbrage at the tone and atti?
tude ot EDgland, In reference to sundry fresh
parcellngs out of territory, a league, including
the most powerful States, was formed for the
avowed purpose of reducing the British Isles to
' tho condition o? conquered provinces, to be
divided among the conqueror*. The best mode
of invading England had been so often the sub?
ject of competitive examination at the milita?
ry schools that an eager desire to test theory
by practice was felt by every young officer ot
Sremise; and a saying of the greatest of mod?
ern strategists had got abroad to the effect
that the capture of London, as compared with
that of Paris, would be child's play (Kinder
spiel. ) The time was opportune; for the long
smoldering hostility of the United States to
. Great Britain, through a series of untoward
-accidents, was again Kindling into Hame. Ac?
cordingly, all the shipping of the Baltic all
the naval resources of the league, were put
under requisition, and a sufficient number of
vessels was built especially adapted lor the
landing of troops, including cavalry and ar
It need hardly be added that our diplomatic
agents were on the alert, so that an enormous
armament could not be got together in any
?natter of Europe without creating an alarm,
h point of fact, our government were oppor?
tunely ad vised.that the invasion was seriously
meditated, and that they must be simultane
aOusly on their guard against an American
squadron which was to co-operate in a Fenian
?insurrection of Ireland. The bulk of the Eng?
lish navy was. as usual, scattered abroad, but
flue Channel fleet, complete in numbers and
equipment, was in the Downs, and a number
of gunboats and other vessels had been
equipped and put to sea under orders similar
to those issued by Nelson when Napoleon was
meditating an invasion from Boulogne: "Do
not throw away your Uve3 uselessly; retreat
toward your own shores belore an overwhelm?
ing force; but, if the enemy attempt ?? a land,
dash among them at all hazards, and ight on
until you sink them or are sunk."
,It was on the evening of the 17th o? June,
IwlrHhat the Admiralty received intelligence
itthat an American squadt sn had been sighted
off Milford Haven du Its way to the Irish Sea,
and my Lords immediately telegraphed to the
commander of the channel fleet, Admiral Slr
Henry Keppel, to be on the look-out. Three
bouts afterward arrived the news that the ar
mada hadafce?n descried, and, subsequent re
ports coming in rapidly, left little doubt tha
the Suffolk coast had been chosen lor the land
. ing. * * * *
So soon as the course of the headmost ships
left no doubt of the precise destination of the
expedition, the telegraphs were set to work,
and all the available troops were brought down
without delay. His Royal Highness the com
mander-ln-chief was present in person, but the
detailed arrangements were left to Lord Strath?
nairn and Lord Sandhurst, assisted by General
Wolseley and a well-appointed staff. A*couple
ofi^ttrisufficed to dig in the sand such rifle
" trenches as were still wanting; and
|? manned with the Guards, the Bines,
n o? marines, and the Inns o? Court
era. The rocky and uneven ground
behind the beach was occupied by a strong
body of volunteers, under the direction of Lord
Elcho. * ? * Taking
advantage of every inequality of the ground,
be placed his men so as to be within easy range
of the boats when they should near the shore,
and under shelter from the covering fire of the
ships. A brigade, consisting of three regi
' meats of the Line, the Sherwood Rangers and
two batteries of horse artillery, was kept in
reserve under Slr Richard Airey. The rest of
the artillery, with the exception of one mask?
ed battery, was placed on a mound or emi?
nence commanding a large portion o? the
beach, and the cavalry, including the Blues
and 2d Lin, "-tards, under Lieutenant-Gene?
ral Slr James scarlett, were placed behtndthe
heights on the extreme left, where they could
easily reach the shore. In the contingency of
the enemy effecting a landing in loree,
the cavalry were to charge along the beach
tand roll them up belore they had time to i or m.
With them, at the head of his Hussar regi?
ment, was the heir appafent to the throne, ir
resistibly impelled by the hereditary courage
ofhls race to disobey a royal order (issued
from Balmoral) not to leave the capital. Tor?
pedoes were laid down by a flotilla of gun?
boats under Rear Admiral Sherard Osborn,
which withdrew when this duty was perform?
ed, prepared to operate on the flank of the
armada when the landing should commence.
It was a time of agitating suspense to the
bravest while the ships of war were taking up
their positions to cover the landing, and the
transports were transferring their armed car?
goes to the boats. Alter ascertaining bv care
lul sounding that they could approach no
nearer, they opened their Are at about the
distance of a mlle. The rocks were shelled,
and the strand was swept with round-6hot,
causing little or no loss to the English, who
never showed a finger above rlfle-plfor treuch,
till the landing boats Intervened and the iron
^hail necessarily ceased. Then a signal gun
was heard; the battery in the centre ot their
Ksltion was unmasked. *******
Ings began to look very unlike Kinderspiel,
But large sacrifices bad been counted on; it
was known and felt that a first landing on the
British coast must be effected in the spirit of
a forlorn hope, and fresh boats were hurrying
in or loading from the transports; when, bark
a low. rumbling sound, like intermitting thun?
der, is heard from far off, across the sea. It
Is the sound of cannon on the extreme lett of
the armada. It can be nothing but the Eng?
lish Channel Fleet. A fast steamer had, In
fact, overtaken the Admiral, and, dispatch1 n
two of his ships to watch the Americans, he
had come back (like Desaix at Marengo) to
give a decisive turn to the wavering fortunes
of the day-the day big with the fate o? ?JQ
land, ol Europe, ol the-world.
?****?*? K *
?j.* The military organization of the invading
army was beyond all praise; an order emana?
ting from headquarters might be said to live
along the line, and the skill to restore a losing
battle or effect a retreat was never wafting,
any more than the strategy which wins or im?
proves a victory. But what did such skill
avail here, on an untried element, where
soldiers and generals were equally helpless,
where strategy was useless, and bravery
thrown away ? AU hope of carrying out any
pre-organized plan was at an end. Sauve qui
peut became the word among the hired or
pressed masters of transports, who, such ot
them as escaped being run down, made off
without waiting to take In their original
freights. The wind rose, and soon freshened
to a gale. The gunboats which had fallen
back before the advancing armament, now as?
sailed it on every side. The fire of shells was
continued lrom the heights. A desperate
sea-fight was prolonged till dark, and partial?
ly continued through the night When morn?
ing broke, the catastrophe was made clear in
all ita horrors. The second armada had
shared the fate of the first. Host of the hostile
iron-dads were missing. That which carried
Caesar, and his fortunes-in other words, the
Admiral-Generalissimo and his suite-had re?
ceived a 600-pound steel-beaded snot between
wind and water, and had no alternative bnt to
strike. Princes, Archdukes and Dukes were
made prisoners by the score. The renowned ?
chief of a brilliant staff was picked up in an ex?
hausted state while endeavoring/ to regain his
ship by swlmmiug, after the boat in which he
was trying to remedy the confusion had - been
swamped by the.surge; and a Serene High
cess, who had made his way to the shore al
the head of his contingent, was with difficulty
persuaded to give up his sword to Prince Ed?
ward, of Saxe-Weimar, who enacted the part
of Bayard to Francis I, at Pavia, But we re?
serve for another chapter the various episodes
of this ever-memorable triumph and its results.
Respecting "The Second Armada,'' the Lon?
don Times says:
It is probably useless to offer these consider?
ations to our alarmists. It is their nature to
conjure up visions of evil, and if one fancy is
dispelled, another will present itself. Up to
last summer, it was France that threatened
us, and not a week passed In the session with?
out some reference to the French Iron-clads,
their number, size, thickness, and so forth, or
to French guns, and chassepots and mitrail?
leurs. No sooner ls France overthrown, than
Germany is at once put in Its place, and de?
clared far more dangerous, though formerly
the main point insisted upon was that the
enemy were only separated from us by twenty
miles of sea. But assuming what these gen?
tlemen expect-that one or more Continental
powers should ever make the attempt to land
a force upon these shores-we submit
that the event which the author of
"The Second Armada" anticipates is far
more probable than such a- landing,
and such a march as others have
described. We know something from former
experience of thc difficulties which Impede
the assembling of fleets and flotillas, the em?
barkation and transport of large bodies of
troops, and of the obstacles to landlnz and
penetrating inland In presence of defensive
forces. We also know the overwhelming
power of the British Navy, and that it could
dissipate in a few hours ail the maritime pre?
parations by which we are said to be threat?
ened. Nor ls there any reason to doubt that
the land forces of which this country will now
be able to dispose could be collected and con?
centrated In a few days In sufficient numbers
to deal with any enemy which might break
through the barrier of our fleets. Indepen?
dently of all political reasons, we have in the
danger of the enterprise and the facility of the
defence a guarantee which ought to be suffi?
cient to all reasonable minds.
MURDER OF "PET" HALSTEAD.
Details of Che Deed.
The New York papers, of Monday, are QUed
with the details of the tragic end ot General.
Oliver S. Halstead, Jr., a well-known poli?
tician, who was shot the day before in the
room of a woman of disreputable character, in
Newark, N. J., by a Jealous rival.
Halstead, it appears, had been visiting the
woman (Mary Wilson) for some time. A
former patron of this woman, \ charcoal mer?
chant named Botts, maddened with drink and
jealousy, broke into the bouse early Sunday
morning, and, utter a slight scuffle with his
victim, who had Just arisen from bcd, shot him
In the heart andiungs, causing death in Alteen
minutes. The murderer, after the commis?
sion of the deed, walked away, but upon be?
ing pursued by a polioeman, gave himself up.
He lreely confessed the murder, and said that
he had premeditated it, and was willing to be
hanged for it. Oliver S. Halstead, the mur?
dered man, belonged to a prominent family.
His father, who resides near Newark, ls the
venerable and well known ex Chancellor
Halstead. The deceased was in the 53d year
of his age, and was graduated at Princeton
College in 1839. He practiced law until 1819,
when he went to Calilornta and remained a
year or two. Returning to Newark In 1860,
Mr. Halstead was a prominent supporter of
Bell and Everett* He was a warm personal
friend of Mr. Lincoln all through his ad?
ministration, and was frequently consult?
ed by the President upon matters of state. At
this time General Halstead gained the sou?
briquet of "Pet" Halstead from his supposed
position In Mr. Lincoln's confidence. About a
year ago he was again before the public eye In
connection with the "Halstead battery," a'sub
marine apparatus which attracted some atten?
tion. General Halstead was a man ot paris,
especially endowed with those florid, If not
very solid, qualities which makes men promi?
nent in troubled times. He leaves a wlte and
six children, among whom are two sons of
twenty-five and twenty years ot aze. Mr*.
Halstead, whom he married In 1810, ls the
daughter of the late Stephen Meeker, one of
the wealthiest and most respected citizens of
Newark-who died In 186S. She possesses In
her own right a considerable property, and the
family of the deceased are, therefore, in good
A KEW LUCRETIA BORGIA.
The Woman who Poisons Three Hus?
bands and Two Stepchildren.
Brief mention was made in a telegram In
Saturday's NEWS of the arrest at New Bruns?
wick, New Jersey, of Mrs. Lydia Sherman, by
officers from Connecticut, who charge her
with having poisoned at different times three
husbands and two step-children, the offspring
of her last husband by a -former marriage.
The New York papers of Saturday state that
this woman married a Jersey man nearly ten
years ago, and, alter living with him three
years, he died suddenly, and under circum?
stances which occasioned considerable com?
ment The second husband was married in
Connecticut, and died under equally suspicious
circumstances, but, aa nothing was there
known of the former mysterious death, no
action was taken. Early in 1870, at Derby,
Connecticut, the woman married Nelso u
H. Sherman, a widower, with two chil?
dren, one six, and the other fifteen years
old. Within nine months, these three
died, all under the same - unaccountable
circumstances. After the death of the oldest
child, which occurred last, Mrs. Sherman went
io New Brunswick to visit, and went also to
Philadelphia. Immediately after she had left,
succeeding the death of the child, the lilends
of Mr. Sherman took steps to Investigate the
matter, aud lo that end had the body of Mr.
Sherman and those of the two children ex?
humed. The officers who came on to make
tiie arrest stale that undeniable evidence of
poison was found upon all three o? the bodies,
and that it was plainly seen in the stomach of
the last buried of the three. They also state
that they have been able to Ox upon the al?
leged murderer the purchase of poison Blmilar
to that of which traces were found. The poison
was vegetable and of an unusual character,
the officers being unable to give its nftme.
They were armed with warrants and a requi?
sition from Governor Jewell. The statements
of the officers leave no doubt that the woman
Is guilty of one of the most startling and sen?
su ional series of crimes that has ever been
committed. On being charged with the
crime she gave no appearance of guilt, and
beyond the simple suiprise and the assertion
of her Innocence, did not seem to be at all

BEFORE AND AFTER MARRIAGE
[From the London Examiner ]
In the romantic'courting days the love-mak-1
lng is fresh and sweet and all-engrossing, and
the unreflecting -Innocents are deluded Into
the belief that the bonds of matrimony are
alone needed to secure them a life of love and
Joy at the high fever heat of these wat tn
youthful moments. But such an anticipation
ot heaven on this earth cannot be. The heat
must cool down, and the intoxication of love
sober into the tranquillity of friendship. It is
a great matter to get safely through this cool?
ing process. The danger is that, when it be?
gins", one or other, or both, ignorant that its
cause lies in the nature of things, may throw
the blame on an innocent partner, and In his
or her secret heart sigh over the awful misfor?
tune of a dreary union. This would not hap?
pen so frequently as lt does lt, as is not often
the case, the husband and wife were to sober
down at about the same rate. As a rule, the
lady will hold on to the billing and cooing and
tender love-making much longer than the
gentleman. It is the man that cools and the
wife that is broken-hearted. This, though
much to be regretted, ls easy enough to un?
derstand without considering the husband a
brute. Probably men hare by nature less ten?
derness than women. Certainly their active
business lives are averse to Its development,
and any considerable display of softness, on
their part, is commonly sneered down as an
unman if weakness. By our social arrange?
ments women, on the other hand, are devoted
almost entirely to the exercise ol this emotion;
to them love In some shape ls all and all; with?
out lt their lives are cheerless and blank. The
slow work of brtnzlng the lives hud pursuits |
of the. sexes Into greater harmony, and there?
by assimilating the characters ol men and wo- '
men. must be lefc to the untiring zeal of the
.promoters of the "woman-movement.-'
Among causes of evil lying nearer the sur?
face there Ls our system of courtship, which
seems as If specially designed for mischief. To
be kind and attentive to the object ot one's
affection is natural on the part of both man
and woman. But, according to custom, the
gentlemarr-fiuist do all thc woolngv the labor
of love-maaioz falls to him; and, as a rule,' he
does not spnrefblraself. For weeks, tor months,
for years, he worships at the feet of his fair
one, with compliment, flattery and endless at?
tentions. He seems the slave of her smallest
wish. In all this there Is much acting,' often
much conscious acting. Marriage ls the drop
ping of the curtain; with lt ends the merry,
but, in its consequences, melancholy farce.
And when he sees the effects of the play, he
sincerely wishes it had never began. The at;
tentions cannot continue. Nor is lt desirable
that they should. Yet. in getting th ?rn fora
time, women are taught to expect them tor
ever. The arrangement ls cruel to women.
It is like the practice of first spoiling children,
and then punishing th err for being spoiled.
Of course we can undersmud the extrava?
gant pre-nuptlal speeches of the bearded lover
without charging him with the least insinceri?
ty. Wbiie the lady is yet to be won, and he is
under the Influence of a pent-up passion and a
healed imagination, he talks sentiment and
swears a thousand fond, foolish, impossible
things-that their moons will be all equally
honeyed, and the like. No doubt he sometimes
prattles In this pretty, way more because it ls
the fashion than for a better reason. Often,
however, he is so Ignorant of human nature
that he believes all this himself. .But lt ls the
misfortune of the poor girl always to believe it.
How could she ever doubt such charming
truth ? The Incense of flattery is sweet, ana
she likes to pet and be pelted. The love may
be perfectly genuine on both sides, and yet
with marriage there may come a great falling
off from all this. When the wile dropauher
handkerchief the husband does not dart across
the room to save her the trouble of stooping.
After marriage a man.cannot be bothered
telling his wife twenty limes a day that
he really loves her. He thinks she should take
that for granted. And the excess of fondling
and caressing In which he Indulged, and for a
time enjoyed, gradually loseaJts zest, and be?
comes tiresome to him, especially when he
has, as most men have, business and Impor?
tant out-door Interests to occupy his thoughts.
But men are not all pure selfishness, and
women do not know how often their loving
embraces, though they Interrupt the busy
thoughts, and are felt to be out ot season, are
nevertheless patiently submitted to. out of a
delicate regard for their feelings. Unfortu?
nately love, though described as blind in the
selection ot its objects, has eyes preternatural?
ly sharp in detecting a coldness in Its votaries
In a thousand little things the loving but un
thinking wife sees and feels the growing
change. Gathering over her like a black
cloud darkening the sunshine of her early
summer comes the dismal thought that she
may oe the miserable victim of a loveless
marriage. At last, perhaps, in a moment of
Ies3 virtue or unusual Irritability, the jhua
baud, by word or deed, slights Borne little
personal attention, or neglects one of
the established ceremonies of love.
The poor wife leela as if she could not survive
it. It is a poisoned arrow into beratender
heart; a wound that may tiped long years to
heal. She is disappointed; her love is not ap?
preciated; and in Beeret she grieves ever a
hidden sorrow. If she is foolish enough to
complain, aud to' claim as a duty what to be
real or desirable must be purely spontaneous
and this i3 the folly of too many-she tnake3 a
ruinous mistake. The good mun has not left
off loving her. True, the fever ls no longer
on him; but he loves her with all his heart In
his own quiet way. Is she not his wife, se?
cure in his affection; bis trusted, bosom
friend-and what4 more would she have '!
W^en she accuses him of coldness and ne?
glect, he ls vexed, and does not like lt. If she
continue the annoyance she will make her?
self disagreeable, and may, when it is too
late, discover the awful difference between
the real and tue Imaginary loss of her hus
But let not the persecuted husband be too
hard; let him remember that he may be more
or less to blame; that his importunate wife may
be but demanding the love and attention he.
In his folly, taught her to expect, and olten
assured her she should have. A change In the
fashion of love-making would be a great bles
sing. Women are spoiled by the adoration
they receive before marriage, and both they
and their husbands have to eat the bitter after
fruit. Besides, this desperate wooing is quite
unnecessary. For a long time yet young la?
dies will have uo choice, but marry, whether
Antlered or not. And they would make much
belter and more coutented wives if, instead of
intoxicating them with wild, sweet ravings
that are at least Insane it not insincere-men
would treat them from the first wlih something
approaching the quiet kindness and affection
tliat their less emotional constitution will
enable them to continue unto the end.

A goodly numlerof citizens were In attend

The com and cotton prospects were represent?
ed .by farmers fiom all parts of the county as
looking well. Tie season has been good, and

Can any body beat it ? If so, speak out.
A corresponden, writing from Barnwell,
under date June 28, says : "All kinds of crops

The Union, of ytsterday, elves the follow?
ing account of the Fourth at the capital: "The
Fourth yesterday was duly observed by the
colored and a part of the white population of
the city. Early in the morning, the several
militia companies were brought into line, and,
with music, paraded the several streets. They
presented a very commendable appearance",
and were followed in the line of march by the
crowd that usually congregates on such occa?
sions. The 'youthluls' were also out with
their wooden guns, and bid fair before long to
rival their seniors in the manual of
arms and intricate evolutions. After
the marching hid been concluded, a
large assemblage congregated in the park,
where an oration was delivered by Attorney
General Chamberlain befitting the occasion.
Mr. Chamberlain vas followed by Senator
Scott, of Pennsylvania, Mr. Stevenson. M. C.,
from Ohio, Senator Sawyer and Hon. R. B. El?
liott, M. C., Irom this district. Senator Scott
spoke earnestly, and gave some sound advice
to the audience, representative Stevenson
spoke eloquently and fervidly, and dwelt with
much loree upon the occasion of the assem?
bling of the audience, their duties, rights and
prospects. We noticed upon the stand besides
those named, Hon. S.L. H?ge, Gen. W. Gurney,
Collector Wallace and others. There were but
very few white persons present, but the cere?
monies were interesting and Instructive; calcu?
lated to do good.
Tha same paper also brings Ute report ol an
accident, as follows: " A colored man was
lound on the road to Frost's Mills yesterday
morning, with a shot through the bead, and
also with the skull beat in. The man was in-.
sensible when found. It ls reported that he
was In the city Monday, and was one of the
Greenville Railroad hands. The coroner will
go up the road this morning to hold an inquest
over tiie body." ,
The Marion Crescent chronicles the follow?
ing accident: "We 'earn that Sam Howard,
nn old colored man, who resided on Mr. John
Collins's plantation, some nine miles from
town, accidentally shot himself on last Friday
afternoon. It appears that the unfortunate
man was sitting on a fence, haviug in his hand
a gun, well loaded with duck shot, and on at?
tempting to step down irom the fence, the
hammer of the gun struck a rall, andthe gun
went off, the shot entering Sam's lower law.
The bones were terribly fractured, making
the wound a very dangerous one. He has
the care of Dr. E. B. .Smith, and we trust he
may recover. Sam was a Juror at the late
term of the court, and appeared to be a quiet,
peaceable man." ?
The same paper brings the news of a fiend?
ish outrage: "We learn from a reliable source
that a most horrible outrage was on Monday
perpetrated on a poor but respectable white
woman living a lew miles from this town. The
woman, whose name irom motives of sym?
pathy and delicacy we suppress, was living
with a married sister, and on last Monday this
sister went off for the day, leaving the house
and her children in the care of the poor girl.
During this absence a negro scoundrel went
to the place and after a desperate but ineffec?
tual resistance foully outraged the weak and
unprotected giri. She was - severely chok?
ed and her mouth and eyes filled
with sand by the. monster durlnit the
struggle. To-day she is suffering acutely
from the personal Injury, and who can esti?
mate how deep is the sorrow she must feel
under the sense of that moral Injury of which
8bewasthe victim. The perpetrator ol this
deed of horror was not recognized, being un?
known to his victim. And yet such deeds in
South Carolina are no longer punished by
death ! Since receiving this Information we
learn that there is every reason to suppose
that one Benjamin Flnklea, a desperate
villain against whom there are three warrants,
including that yesterday Issued against him
for this crime, was the perpetrator of the
deed. Let all good men, who have homes to
protect, look out for the outlaw."
The Crescent also says: "A. Clarke Hayae
and Wesley Greene, two of the parties con
victedlot the .riot, assault and battery alluded to
In our last issue, and against whom bench war?
rants were Issued by order ol the court, have
been arrested. Kayne was arrested In Dar?
lington by the sheriff of that county and sent
over under guard, arriving here on Saturday
last. Greene was arrested by our prompt and
efficient sheriff. The prlsoaers are now In jail,
where, unless Governor Scott carries out that
pardoning principle they rely on, they will re?
main until the next term of the court, and
then they will receive the sentence ot the
court. We commend the prompt action of the
officers who have made these arrests."
Ben. Dormand alias Benjamin Dormand,
who was convicted at the June, 1870, term of
the court, ol assault and battery, and against
whom sentence was sealed by Judge Rutland,
was arrested last Saturday by the deputy sheriff
and ls now in Jail. Our readers will remember
that Ben was convicted ol' an aggravated as?
sault and battery on an officer attempting to
airest him. It was In proof, it we are not
mistaken, thal be actually used his knife,
slightly wounding the officer. Ben, at the
term of the court when he was convicted, was.
in jail to answer a charge of rape, as well as
the case of assault and battery. He was
acquitted of the charge of rape, and, on being
released by virtue of the order granted on
motion ot his counsel in that case, he wisely
left for parts unknown. But poor Ben forgot
that these Utile matters are sometimes re?
membered, and, venturln? back again, has
come to grief. So says the Marlon Crescent.
Speaking of tue crops, the Marion Star says:'
"The crops in our county are more than
promising, and planters generally are -quite
sanguine of retrieving in 1871 the misfortunes
of 1870. Corn especially promises well, Hie
number o? acres planted bel?g more than
usual, and the prospective yield being far bet?
ter than ordinary. Cotton, too, looks well,
and, although the acreage will not equal that
of last year, the amount produced will be
much g'reater. The farmers are elated at the fine
seasous so far. Generous rains have recently
fallen, and everything wears a vigorous as-,
THE PRESENT STATE OF FRANCB.- Edouard
Laboulaye, the French publicist, has written a
letter to a friend In New York, which is inter?
esting as showing how well awat?! the leading |
men ot tho nation are of the difficulties that
surround the republic of the hour. He says:
"We are attempting at this moment to found
a republic. I take part in .this effort without
having mucli faith in its success. You will
find in Hie Revue des Deux Mondes for June 1
an article of raine on the 'Question of Two
Chambers,' in which I sh?w how the Ameri?
cans have successfully solved the problem,
and urge my countrymen to imitate your ex?
cellent Federul Constitution. But there is so
little Republican spirit in France-there is
such love of pleasure, idleness and luxury,
and so little political sense, that I greatly fear
the re-establishment ol the Empire, or the res?
toration of the legitimate monarchy. Besides,
I understand how the country sighs for repose
after so much suffering, and dreads liberty
such as hos been practiced In France-that is,
sterile agitation and factious turmoil." i
THE BOWEN MYSTERY.
PARDON, OR NO PARDON-INCOMPRE?
The Great Bigamist Still in Quod-The
Efforts to Get Him Pardoned-Who
Signed the Petition-Doubts at Wash?
Again the telegraph tells us front. Washing?
ton that the Hon. C. C. Bowen remains in
jail, the-expected pardon not 'having been re?
ceived up to lost evening. The Washington
correspondent of the Baltimore Bun writes
on Monday night:
There seems to be no doubt that the Presi?
dent on Thursday decided not to pardon Bow-1
en. When Mrs. Bowen called in the after?
noon, Instead of seeing her, he referred her to
Attorney-General Akerman for an answer.
District-Attorney Fisher, who prosecuted the
case before the Griminal Court, declined to '
recommend his pardon. The Attorney-Gene?
ral had prepared a paper in accordance with
the President's views, but it appears that Mrs.
Bowen was successful at Long Branch. The
pardon is expected here to-morrow morning,
and Mrs. Bowen ls anxiously awaiting its ar?
rival . .
The signers of the petition for pardon were
a number of members of the bar, and all the
Jurors who tried the case, with one exception,
besides mo3t of the members o? the Legislative
Council and House of Delegates, and numbers
of our citizens. The application was present?
ed to the President several weeks ago, and by
him was referred to the attorney-general; Out
that officer wa. absent at the lime. In conse?
quence of which there wa3 some delay. On
his return he immediately asked a report
Irom the district attorney, that officer
recommended the pardon, and also
stated-as Mayor Hall, of New York," had writ?
ten a letter In opposition to a pardon unless
there was an Investigation Into the manner in
which the alleged fraudulent decree was ob?
tained-that there was no evidence in the case
connecting Bowen with the fraud. It Is un?
derstood that the Attorney-General made no
recommendation In the case.. Last week the
papers were taken up by the President, and
on Friday evening last Mrs. Bowen left here
to have an Interview with the President at
Long Branch, arriving there at -noon on Sat?
urday, and the same afternoon the pardon
The correspondent of the Boston Advertiser
If he is pardoned, the course Mrs. King-or
Mrs. Klng-Bowen, as she claimed to be-will
pursue, ls a subject of some curiosity. Bowen's
conviction decided she was not his wife, and
pardon, while his appeal for a new trial ls
pending, will not reverse the effect of the ver?
dict upon her. It 1* given out that she will
still claim him as. her husband, and live with
him as hlB wife.

PS- HOW WE USED TO BE PHYSICK
ED.-Who does not remember the time when
spring purgation was considered indispensable to,
summer health? No matter for wry faces, the.
inevitable salts and senna, rhubarb, or calomel
and Jalap, must be administered. These "spring
medicines," the youngsters. were told, were to
keep them hale and hearty during the summer.
We all know no w that this was a fallacy; that new I
vigor, not depletion, is what ls required at the j
commencement of the summer solstice. As a
preparation for the enervating effects of oppres?
sive summer weather, a course of HOSTETIER'S
STOMACH EUTERS ls highly expedient. This
famous vegetable preparation has three promi?
nent properties: It renovates, purifies and regu?
lates all the functions of the body. It Is composed
exclusively or pure vegetable productions, viz:
the essential principle of Monongahela Bye, and
the most efficacious tonic and alterative roots,
barks and gums known to medical botanists.
Hence, it ls an absolutely safe medicine, and no
tincture of the Pharmacopoeia caa compare with
lt, either in parity or m the variety of its objects,
and its comprehensive results. Happily for man?
kind, the theory that lt was necessary to pros?
trate a patient la order to care him, ls forever ex?
ploded, and the true philosophical doctrino, that
vigor is the great antagonist of disease, has
taken Ita place. Hostetter's Bitters ls an invlgo
rant, and hence lt ls the proper medicine for the
re ble at this most trying season or the year.
Be sure that you obtain the genuine article, aa j
there are Innumerable vile Imitations lu the mar?
ket. Look to the ornamental stamp, the engraved
label, and the name blown Into tho glass. Hos?
