-The Duke Alexis is a handsome young
man, and bears a more striking likeness to
his grandfather than to the present Czar. He
is a great smoker and fine horseman; a despe?

four per week at the beginning of next year.
This seems to be fair, and will eventually give
the workmen all they have been contending
for. The masters have held out against fixing
the standard of Ume for labor at fifty-four |
hours per week while unfinished contracts
were on hand. The proposed arrangement
will eaable them to finish their contracts this

nine honr rule.

Democratic State Convention issue an address
to the Democratic voters of the city. They
rehearse the proceedings of the late conreo
Hon at Rochester, claiming that they obtained j
a success over Tammany there, urge all bon-11
est Democrats to nominate men ot the highest
character for intelligence and integrity for the I,
Legislature, having no doubt of their ability to (
elect them by overwhelming majorities, thus
assuring the utter and speedy downfall of the
Tammany ring, then some portion of the sto?
len millions may be recovered. They close by
saying: "Let us pledge ourselves to vindicate 1
and redeem the honor ot the Democratic I
party, and use every means, through the bal- j
lot-box and the courts, to bring tbe criminals i
who disgrace our party to condign punish- ,

than live under German rule, they are wllllog <
to quit the land made dear to them by all the \
associations which bind people to the land of ?
their nativity, in order to put a stop to this
depopulation of two of the fairest provinces of
the new German Empire, the authorities have
adopted and revived various measures which
must, to some extent, check the ebbing tide.
The price of passports, without which no one
can leave these provinces for a foreign country, '
has been raised; a French regulation of 1
1866, but which for a long time vas obso- <
lete, requiring that persons desirous ot emi?

should prove that ail their pecuniary obliga?

and ls now strictly enforced; and the privileges

they must discontinue the business in which
they were engaged. When lt has been found
necessary to adop. such stringent measures as
these to keep the people at home, the difficult
task which Prince Bismarck and his august
sovereign have before them in "reconstruct?
ing'' their new acquisitions may be readily
-The organization of ihe French army has
progressed to a somewhat favorable conclu?
sion, when the shattered condition of France
ls taken into consideration. While the rest ol
the continent Is engaged In bringing out its
full strength of men and materiel wlih a view
to warlike complications, France, too, under
the impetus of her new military administra?
tion ls gathering in camps the raw material
destined to undergo the transformation into
soldiers. It is estimated that the French
Minister of War has at his command no
less than 700.010 men at the present
time, subdivided into the regular troops,
the army of reserve and the National
Guard, ready tor ihe field. A number of
camps are lu process of formation, of which
the chief, at Botirge.-, will contain lf.0,000 racu,
who will be thoroughly drilled In artillery ex?
ercises. A camp south of Paris will be form?
ed with from 100,000 to 120,000 men. Another
camp, In the vicinity ol Rennes, will include
about 40,000 men, of whom about one-third
are intended for the artillery service, and who
will be duly drilled in that practice. A fourth
camp is contemplated at the plain ot Tou?
louse, comprising 20.000 or 40,000 men, which
will receive, mainly, the recruits Irom the
middle ol France belonging to the classes of
the years 1870 and 1871. These are the ele?
menta of military strength with which France,
emerging from her recent disasters, hopes to
maintain her military rank among the great
powers of Europe.
-A late London paper gives the details of a
case which one would scarcely suppose could
occur in the nineteenth century and in a civil
Ized country. An Irish gentleman, named Mr
Alfred Handers, who ls possessed of a property
of $20,000 a year, and who ls a partner of the
well-knowa firm of Mandera A Ca, brewers, at
the Instance of his brother and hts own wife,
was placed In a private lunatic asylum at Fing,
lass In April, 18C9, and still remained in con?
finement there on the 18th of August last, al?
though lhere 1B every reason lo believe that he
ls quite sane. During the whole period of bis
Incarceration.extendlng through twenty-seven
months, he was not visited either by his broth?
er or his wife. Alter a long time he contrived
to communicate with his solicitor, a Mr. Lewis,
who went to the asylum and demanded an In?
terview with him, but was refused by Dr. Dun?
can, the proprietor. A clerk of Mr. Lewis
haviDg succeeded in obtalnlog an Interview
with Mr. Mandera, the latter was thereafter de?
barred from takiog exercise In the pleasure
grounds. Finally, on the 13th of August, a
writ ol habeas corpus was taken out directing
Dr. Duncan to produce his prisoner, BO lhat the
necessary steps might be taken for determin?
ing his mental condition and testing the le?
gality of his confinement. At the time of the
application for the writ, letters from Mr. Man?
dera that were sensible and intelligently writ?
ten were read, and also the affidavits of two
keepera who had attended the unfortunate
man for several months, and both of whom
testified that he was perfectly sane.
The Ku-Klux Falsehoods.
After an incubation of several days, the
Columbia Union has batched a reply to tbe
charge that all it> most striking stories of
Ku-Klux violence bave been shown to be
untrue. We gave six ?prominent examples
of deliberate falsificador), on the part of the
Union, or its correspondente, to whictfcate
gorical statement Ibe following answer is
"1. Ben Hare ?rcs diabolically murdered In
Newberry County. In August last, by a party
of '"night ridera." as stated in this journal.
How does Tut: NEWS know that ihe men ar?
rested tor the crime are guilty? They have
not yet been tried. Did we say they were
"white night riders ?" What we aimed at was
to state the lact that the mttrder was commit?
ted, and even this fact TUE NEWS does not
?.2. Bird Sims alias McClure was murdered
in Chester, as staled by us, but we never men?
tioned the name of Ku-Klux as connected
with the affair, and challenge THE NEWS to
f?rove to the contrary. Whether McClure's
atber In-law was guilty ol the offence remains
to be seen.
"3. Lewis Thompson, a colored preacher,
was most foully murdered near Jeter's planta?
tion, on Tyger River, his body being lett by
the villains to decompose in the broad sunlight
for nearly a month. We saw and conversed
with the brother of ihe murdered man, and,
from other evidences in our possession, are
satisfied tbat the story of THE NEWS about an
"Investigation," in which it was lound that
the colored men murdered Mr. Thompson, ls
a sheer fabrication, gotten up doubtless In TUE
NEWS office. The colored friends of Thomp?
son were prevented, by Ku-Klux terrorism,
from according his body a Christian burial,
and THE CHARLESTON NEWS is the Journal tbat
lifts up its voice In defence of such devils In?
carnate as those who committed Ibis cowardly
and Inhuman deed.
"A. It was charged that the Ku-Klux were
riding in Fairfield County, and up to this date
said charge has never been disproved, al?
though the Winnsboro' Keics bas made several
ineffectual attempts to do so. The most thai
journal could say was lhat lt had never heard
of such riding. However, this ls ihe kind of
Sroot necessary to establish a point with TUE
EW8. We expect the irutb or falsity of the
charge that KuKluxwe.e riding In Fairlie!!
County will be established to Hie satisfaction
ot even THE NEWS belore many more months
"The rest of tbe cases enumerated are of |
the same nature as ibe foregoing, except they
are of still less importance. We also publish?
ed Hie fact of ihe several raids upon the Jail
In Union Count}-, when nearly a score of col?
ored victims were sacrificed by these bosom
friends of Tun NEWS. The attack upon Sim?
son Young-the murder of the Melton family
-and the outrages in Spananburg-all bav?
appeared in ibis journal, and at the time ol
heir publication none doubled their veracity
nore tl an TUE NEWS."
The rejoinder to these barefaced endeav?
ors to browbeat this paper may be made as
conclusive a9 the original charge.
1. Three Degroe3, named Ed. Calmes,
Dave Whitmore and Dolph Kinari!, lie in
Newberry jail, awaiting their trial for ihe
murder of Ben Hare. We do not prejudge
;hem. The evidence wa3 strong enough to
lusiify their arrest, and, until these Radical
negroes are proved to be innocent, the us?
inions of the Union tbat Hare wa9 killed
jy Ku-Klux are only fresh evidence of the
Malignity with which it attacks ihe wbite
Democrats of the State.
2. For the statement that McClure was
nurderod by his wife's father, now lying in
chester jail, we have the authority of the
Chester Reporter. The colums of the Union
ure proof enough that th? responsibility of |
;be crime was placed upon the Ku-Klux.
3. For the statement thal Lewis Tbomp-1 I
jon was murdered by the colored people, for
social reasons, we have the authority of the
Union Times. Thati3 sufficient.
4. Against the statement of the Winns?
boro' News, that lhere are co Ku-Klux in
Fairfield County, the Union sets the word
)f its anonymous correspondent, whom the
?Vinnsboro' Nercs has publicly branded as a 11
wilful liar. J f
The "rest o? cageg en?t?erat?d"-say8
^e K-'ton-are of "the same nature" as the
foregoing "except that they are of less im?
portance,'' Now it happens that the other
:ases named by us were two, viz: (1.) the
alleged attempt of a band of Ku-Klux to
murder a colored Republican in Edgeiield,
md (2) the whipping by the Ku-Klux or u
white man named Rytenburger in Sumter
County. We gave (1) Ihe affidavits of twenty
citizens of Edgeiield County declaring thal
no such outrage woe commilted. Besides
Ibis, we gave the affidavit of the colored
man who was said to have been attacked, in
which he swears that no such attack was
made, ar"v that be had heard of no lawless
act in his neighborhood. We gave (2) the
Sumter Xews and the Sumter Watchman us
our authority for the statement tbat Rytenbur?
ger v*as neither whipped nor threatened to
whipped. In these two cases, as i? (be
four preceding, we couvicted Ibe Union, or
its anonymous correspondent-, of down?
right falsehood. They are, ti3 the Union
says, "of the same nature'' as all its Ku
Klux jams; and us ihey are ouly two fuliri
cations, while those which il vainly attempts
to explain are four in number, it naturally
speaks of its deformed twins as of "les3
As a last blow the Union quotes "ihe
"murder of the Melton family" a3 a vera?
cious Ku-Klux crime. We think that the
tallowing card, which appears in tbe Union
of Tuesday, disposes of this last outrage:
CUKRAW, S. C..|Septembor 14, 1871.
MT. L. C. Carpenter, Editor of Duly Union,
Columbia. & C.:
DEAR Sm-We have to dny seen a copy of
your paper ol ihe 21st of Juiv lust, in which
we notice a communication signed "GU," and
dated "Chesterfield County, s. ?., July 17,
We do not propose to notice thc many false
statements contained In thai article, lor there
ls scarcely a single word ol (ruth in Hie whoie
of it: but there is one 8tat?-uirni which, us
gcod citizens, having ihe welfare of the whola
timmunity at heart, we desire to notice, and
that ia this: "The murderers of this (the Mel?
ton) family are known here to every Democrat
and to many Republicans." Now, we pro?
nounce this statement utterly and unquali?
fiedly false, for we are all Democrats, and none
of us know anything whatever as to who waa
the murderers of the Meltons, and we are well
satisfied that the statement is a gross libel,
not only upon "every Democrat." but also
upon "many Republicans" of this county.
Our main object, however, is to learn Irom
you who the aui hor of this communication is,
in order that we may have him bound over to
testily at the next term of the Court of Ses?
sions, in regard to this subject, about which he
seems to know so much, so that the authors
of this horrible tragedy may be brought to
trial. A. MCQUEEN,
HrNBT Md VER,
W. L. T. PRINCE,
P. F. SPOFFORD,
A. M. LOWRY,
G. W. DCVALL.
The editor of tbe Union refuses to give the
name of his correspondent. Of course. Any
man is good enough to slander the citizens
of Chesterfield County. The Union will
print any statement, however outrageous, BO
long as it reflects upon white men who are
not Radicals. But we do not despair. Let
the good people of the State take the pains
to nail every lie as it comes fresh from the
mint in Columbia, and the Union will soon
be as impotent as it already is disreputable !
The Edgefield and Laurens Railroad.
A meeting of the citizens of Edgefield
Conn ty was held at the courthouse on sales
day, in October, to take into consideration
the feasibility of constructing a railroad
from Augusta, Ga., via Edgefield Court?
house, to Laurensville, S. C. A large num?
ber of citizens were present, all of whom
appeared to take a deep interest in the pro?
ceedings. Ex-Governor Bonham presided,
and addresses were delivered by Major W.
T. Gary, Major John E Bacon, General M.
C. Butler, General Duoovant and others, and
the following resolutions were adopted :
"Resolved, That we, the cilizens cf Edgefield
Count}-, in convention assembled, concurring
in the belief that there 1B a necessity for a
railroad from Aiken, some point on the Char?
lotte, Columbia and Augusta Railroad, south
ot the Pine House, or Augusta, Ga., via Edge
field Courthouse to Laurens Courthouse, here?
by express our willingness to heartily co-ope?
rate with all parties Interested for the early
r mpletlon of this enterprise.
"Resolved, That we hereby assent to the ex?
tension of this road to Sparenburg Court?
house, or any point beyond Laurens Court?
house, which may, by those Interested in this
enterprise, be deemed advisable.
"Resolved, That we hereby pledge ourselves,
except In extraordinary cases, to grant to this
enterprise the right or way over our lands.
"Resolved, That there Is a necessity for a
convention of all persons interested In the
building of this railroad.
"Resolved, That we hereby call said conven
ventlon to meet In Columbia, S. C., at 10
o'clock, A. M.. cn Friday. 10th November,
1671, to take Into consideration all matters
pertaining to the building of this railroad, and
to adopt such measures as may be necessary
to secure its early completion.
"Resolved, That a committee of twenty-one
be appointed to nominate eight delegates to
Bald convention from the County of Edgefield.
"Resolved, That we Invite the citizens of
Chatleston, Spartanburg. Laurens, Abbeville
and Newberry to meet us lu said con ven lion.
"Resolved, That the several towns, villages
and neighborhoods in the reFpective counties,
along the route, be requested to send each five
delegates to Bald convention.
"Resolved, Thal the Clly of Augusta be Invi?
ted tosend seven delegates to Bald convention.
"Resolved, That the Town of Ai..en be re?
quested lo send seven delegates."
The committee to represent Edgefield
County, as nominated by the committee of
twenty-eight, consists of ihe following gen?

We presume that, in due time, a formal
nvitation to take part in the proceedings of
he Columbia Railroad Convention will be
ixtended to the City or Charleston, and we
lope thut delegates will be appointed who
ire conversant with railroad affairs and
mow what is required to be done for the
iromotion of the commercial interests of
his port. Abbeville, Laurens and other
lounties have already appointed their dele
jatee, and Charleston cannot afford to be
lack ward in co-operating in any practicable
)roject for facilitating inter-communication,
ind for developing the resources of the State.
This is tho lille of a short paper, in pamphlet
brm, Issued from the press of Messrs. Walker,
Svans & Cogswell. The author briefly reviews
he controversy, on the advantages to be de
ived from the ?tudy of the ancient languages,
>etween two of the most distinguished schol?
es that South Carolina has ever produced,
Hugh S. Legare and Mr. Grirake, and suggests
.hat a republication of their weil considered
opinions on classical learning nrght not be
nit of place now that the great questions be
,ween the North and South seem to be set
.led, and trade is filling the vacuum created
)y the war. The inordiuate interest ol late
30stoweu upon scientific and mathematical
studies, in the author's estimation, also calls
Tor an exposition of the useful and refining
effect of the study of the ancient writers, to
enable us not to confound cultivation and re?
finement with effeminacy and weakness; but
rather, by eliciting menial and moral as well
EIS physical activity, to contribute still more
fairly and lully to our jet undeveloped national
power and grandeur. To our present methods
of classical instruction, the author makes
Borne objections, and closes his paper with
some valuable suggestions wlih a view to the
removal of some of these obstacles. The essay
ls oriel and interesting, and ls written with a
clearness which indicates the ability ol' the
