-who, while living,'dwelt In a mansion in the
Quartier St. Germait), but. who was killed
during the bombardment. On visiting bis resi?

a suite of ro^Tflp, while the real entrance irom
the alley was through a swinging door cut ia
tlw'solid masonry, and sklliully concealed,
from view. This room had ostensibly been
used-by_the.count as a place .lor..storing
old furniture, but "on sounding its walls
a large and deep closet was lound
"in which were tools, implements, anti appara?
tus ol various sorts, including surgical instru?
ments, Jars of chloroform, narcotics, and so
on; also a powerful battery. Here was found
a manuscript which purported to be the
count's record of experiments in galvanism
and electricity, made by himself during several
years. It is well known that for the past four
years it has been his habit to deliver lectures
on such subjects before learned. societies, one
of which, entitled "The Mechanism ot Life,"
procured for bim a confidential interview with
the Emperor. The manuscript shows that it
was the system of the count .tb invite people
to his house on one pretext.' or another, and
then kill and experiment'with them, most of
his experiments being made with a view to
restoring suspended "animation.

The Radical Orgab has come to the con?
clusion that some of-the people of Charles?
ton, :who call themselves "Citizens." have
discharged their employees for voting for
Mayor Pillsbury. This S?H 13 laid at the
door of the Old-School-Eoarbon-Locofoco
Democrats, whoever they maybe, and their
"petty tyranny" is taken as the text upon
which to preach. against "cast-iron poli
"tics,"and the "old infamous ruts" in which
Charlestonians are said to be over-fond ol
That any persons who desired to vote the
Radical ticket w?re prevented from BO doing,
by either moral suasion or physical force, we
emphatically deny. The Organ admitted,
even before the'smoke had cleared away
from the Held, that the election was as fair
?ts any election could be in the excited Con-;
dit ion of party politics. And this is the
plain- truth, so for as-the Citizens' Party
were concerned. ' Upon the Radical side,
however, intimidation of the worst kind
was openly practiced. . GangB of negro
bullies surrounded the polls, hooting at
every mian of their color who had the pluck .
to vot? for General "Wagoner. Where they
could je so with impunity, the ..Radical
rowdies beat, and cat, their defenceless op?
ponents. Only the presence of the United
States troops, backed r - three or four thou- .
sand determined white citizens, guaranteed
to the whole people the. free exercise of the
suffrage. And this protection was extended
to every/voter; whether white or colored,
Radical or Conservative. The Radicals in?
tended to win the election, as they had done
before, by brow-beating the timid or infirm;
voter. They failed, as they deserved to do.
Their threats:.and blows, their clubs and
knives, gave hundreds of votes to the Citi?
But themain charge, the barden of the
song, la that certain persons were dis?
charged from their employment because
they Vu ted for Mayor Pillsbury. Whether
this is tme, we do not know." We do bear,
however, that it was intended last week to
discharge from the City Police several mem?
bers of the force who were suspected or
voting for General Wagen en Let this
pass! We desire to meet the question
squarely, and without reference to individual
cases on either side...
Justas a Radical President or a Radical
Governor gives the preference to a member
Of his own party when the public loaves and
fishes are ready for. distribution, so may a
Conservative-citiz?n give the preference,
Other things being equal, to the person who
votes with him .on election .day.. Where
there is a purely political question at
issues we do not wish to see any man pun?
ished, directly or indirectly, because he de?
posits' his ballot fdr! the candidates of bis
choice. At any 'tattoo which involves the
rights,, or the pitvUeges, of any class of
citizens, we desire that every voter have
absolute immunity from blame in endeavor?
ing to elect the candidates whom be is most j
disposed to trust Bat no such question
came ap, bo. ;,the* Conservative side, in the
Charleston Municipal Election. A band of
tr;ed and substantial citizens were pitted
against a plundering clique, who had
wasted our. substance and had striven, for
years, to make, the blacks the bitter and
unrelenting enemies of the white people of
the State. The. choice was between Hon?
esty and Dishonesty, between Probity and
Tice. And the man who, with all the facts
before him, voted Jbr '.'the Pdlsbury Party
deserves nb more indulgence at the hands of
his employers-than if he bad opened their
warehouse doors as a - baad of burglars ap?
proached. It is a business necessity that
Charleston Bhould bave a decent govern?
ment Without it, trade languishes, and
the burden ol taxation becomes intolerable.
The- election of Pillsbury and his ticket
would have cost the merchants and the
storekeepers bf Charleston hundreds of
thousands of dollars, which would have
been extracted from their pockets, in one
shape or another; by profligate m al-ad min
istration. Every employee who voted for
the Pillsbury Party voted, therefore, to
strip bis employer of his hard-earned in?
come-to flich money from the till or the
very men upon whom, and by whom, he
lived. And if any employer in Charleston
desires to retain in his service those who.
deliberately consort with public plunderers,
that employer deserves the worst evil that
may befall him. We want no bribes-no
threats ! Every citizen is at liberty to vote
as he. may please. But the sensible em?
ployer should have no rurther use for any
person in his employment who, by voting
with them, becomes the accomplice of the
Mackeys, the Cains, and all the smaller fry,
who are bent on compassing the ruin of the

The Democratic Victory in Kentucky.
Official returns from ninety-six counties
give Mr. Leslie, the'Democratic candidate
for Governor of Kentucky, a majority of
forty thousand, and it is estimated that,
when the returns are in from the counties
yet to be heard from, bis total majority in
the State will foot up forty-five thousand,
and may reach fifty thousand. General
harlan, the Radical candidate, has doubt?
less done as well as he could. No other
man in the party could have done better.

Federal patronage and Federal influence
could do foe "him, he has not only not re?
duced the Democratic vote, bnt, owing to
the nationol"the contest, it bas actnally
been increased. In other jvords, if the ne?
groes bad hot voted, . Leslie's majority
would have exceeded that of Stevenson, in
1866, which was 88,608.
The Philadelphia Bulletin bas a homily on
this topic which, although it is specially" ad?
dressed to the Republicans of that city, on
whose party ticket some members ot a cor?
rupt municipal "ring" have been placed, may
be taken to heart by honest men of all parties,
and especially of that one which maybe
dominant in any given locality. In the course
ot ito remarks'the AzWefm says: "The cbm
"monly-pr?vuillng notion with regard to the
"meaning of fidelity to political party isa
"very'shallow and tinsafe One. 'It limits it
"seli to the crude Idea that party loyalty con?
sists In voting a party ticket, and swearing
"by party offlc?-holdere. How grovelling and
"mischievous it ls needs no very extended
"argument to prove. How lt degrades the
"principles of-any party, and lowers the gen?
eral tone oi social and'political morals, must
"be "?e?n ' by every intelligent and honest
"mind. There ie no loyalty in Bhuttlng the
"eye and muzzling the tongue when 'men
"who have got Into office, be it high pr.low,
"prove unworthy of their office. He serves
..his patty best who is first and boldest In his
"efforts to keep it pure, whether those efforts
"are directed to keeping men out of place
"who are unfit for it, or in exposing, that mal?
feasance in office to which sb many men are
"tempted when they find, themselves sur?
rounded with the opportunities for pecula?
tion and corruption.'.^

The "Early Worm'! Theory.
The London Spectator makes UL argument
against eaiiy rising In the following fashion:
"The truth ls that late rising in civilized cc-un
"tries is not the result either of Idleness or
"fashion, or contempt for hygienic Jaws, but
"ol'a habit based-partly upon the social Sys?
tem of division of labor, it is very lncon.
"venient lor any society which ls in any way.
"inter-dependent to varyiitstlme of rising with
"the sun, and lt, therefore, selects ; a rough
"mean time at which for the greater, part ot
"the year there will be a decent measure of |
"dayl?gbi. In England, that time ls not 5, or
"anything like 6, but between 8 and 9; and,
"accordingly, Ahe majority of people, who can
"deas they, like, select that time lor rising,
"and so enable themselves to act with .some?
thing like concert. They can ail go to busi?
ness at once,, instead of wasting boars in I
"walting for each other, and all finish at once..
.?instead of burdening the whole class.of as?
sistants, clerks, ?ce, with different and varia?
ble hours. .Moreover, they can all go com?
fortably to work, that ls, can economize
"their, strength to the utmost, acute dlscom
"fort, unnecessarily Incurred, involving loss
"of mental power." Notwithstanding .which,
no doubt the early bird will continue to catch
the lattest worms.
Royalty in England.
The .London Daily Kews, the leading liberal
organ, says that the people do not complain of j
the cost of royalty, but ol the cost of royalty
In retreat. They want royalty, and miss lt j
with regret. "They want to see more of it,
"to feel its presence as the presiding genius
"and Influence over Foclety, as tile visible em?
bodiment of all that ls grand and gracious,
"and hospitable and majestic in the history
"and traditions of the State. They want to*
"see imperial and royal visitors to this coun?
ty received as guests In the palace, not
"lodged as strangers -in an hotel. There
"would never have arisen any question as to
"further demands upon the country in respect
"of provision of. members of the royal family
"by additional taxation, If the country were
"persuaded that the civil list for many years
Mpast had been spentln fulfilling the ordinary
"obligations of a royal household and esta?
blishment. The English people are not so
"mean as to pour Into the public treasury the
"proceeds of the hereditary domains ' of the
"monarchy, and then'to! expect, provision to
"be made lor the royal family out of an annual,
"allowance, granted to the sovereign for'llie,:
"and just sufficient for maintaining the digri
"ty of the CroWn. Perhaps the question for
"providing for an unknown quantity of future '
"princes, and princesses may require some
"day or other to be dealt with in a compre
'.'benslve and permanent manner, especially
"In the event of repealed marriages .but ot
