-The noonday glare which arises from the
awful conflagration at Chicago hos relatively
dimmed the extensive prairie Ares which are
Bf ll raging to the northwest of that Ill-fated
city. For days a heavy veli of smoke has hung
over Minnesota, and thickly-falling cinders j
have been borne hundreds ot miles by the
wind, and strewn broadcast over the more
open and cultivated eastern counties. At some
places the whole population are described as
engaged in battling the flumes and disputing
their progress, Inch by Inch. At others, over?
powered and terrified by the swift approach of
the fire, they fled in disorder, leaving behind
them their houses, barns, cattle, crops and
otherworldly possessions, to be utterly con
sumed. They might well deem it fortunate to
have escaped willi their lives, lor many were
not so lucky. Accounts ol individual heroism,
distressing death.', panic-stricken villages,
narrow escapes, ?tc., come in hourly, and the
fire, as If to corroborate these reports, follows
closely on the heels ot the narrators, and at
one point it had reached a locality within fifty
miles ol St. Paul. Wisconsin ls u!so Buffering
terribly. The pine woods in the six or seven
northeastern counties seem to be one mass of
Hames, and the reflection ls discernible tor I

-A ' run on a bink,"especially if it is a sav?

positors, and the rule held good in Hie case ol

the solvency ol which had been impugned by
interested parties, and before Hie doors ol
which an apprehensive throng ol' poor, ualf
clad and deceived working men and women
assembled, bank-book in baud, on Monday.
The suspicion against the integrity ot the con?
cern, which found expression in some of the
Sunday papers, was bet afloat by one of the
directors In revenge for the defeat of his
aspirations for the presidency, and the only
consequence was that th? unreflecting
depositors, by drawing money on de?
mand lo Ihe amount ot about $250,000.
have thrown away $15.000 interest, which
is a clear gain io the bank. The scene on
Monday was a most unique and animated cae.
The crowd blocked up the thoroughfare.
Clambered upon window sills, dived into hid?
den places, and jostled ene another ia the ef?
fort to break through tho ranks ol policemen
who endeavored lo preserve som.;- kind of
order. As the afternoon waned, the many I
whose "turn" hat! not come became still more
excited, and threatened to carry the doors by
storm, lt was wini the greatest difficulty that
this disposition was quelled by the officers.
The president finally placated to the crowd
?with a speech, and lue spectacle ol the con?
stant line of depositors issuing with their
hands mil oi money still further reassured
them; so thal when ihe hour tor c!o<ing ar?
rived they dispersed lu comparative quiet, and
the "run" was. over.

self with the game of billiards, and soon became
an accomplished player. The tables then in
use were ol the most ordinary construction,
the cushions were made of rags, the balls
were ol poor material, and the cues were like
bean poles. When Basstord began the manu?
facture of billiard materials be secured Phelan's
services, and from the young expert gained
many valuable hints. After serving engage?
ments with several billiard firm*. Phelan went
to Ireland in 1851 to give exhibitions for ihe
benetit of his suffering countrymen. On his re?
turn he opened rooms in New York city,
where he remained a lew years, finally leaving
his business In ihe hands of Dudley Kavanagh,
and going to San Francisco. After a series of |
unfortunate speculations he returned to New
York and engaged with Hugh W. Collender in
the manufacture of billiard tables. The firm
met with great success and achieved a world?
wide reputation. As a billiard-player Phelan
was at one time the wonder ol the world, but
as the game progressed and became popular,
a hundred younger players took the held, and
be gave place to them, content te rest upon
the laurelB won in lormer days.
martial Law In Soatti Carolina.
A few weeks ago Senator Scott, the chair?
man of the Ku-Klux sub-committee, ad?
dressed a letter to President Grant urging
that martial law, under ihe provisions of the
Ku-Klux act, be proclaimed in South Caro?
lina. It was expected that President Grant
would at once accede to the partisan re?
quest, and it was believed that the necessa?
ry proclamation was immediately made
ready. The remonstrances of the Northern
and Western press, and the production of J
trustworthy evidence that Senator Scotl's [
statements were very wide of the trulb,
caused the proclamation to be withheld, and
it was boped, almost against hope, that
more moderate counsels would prevail, and
the suppression of lawlessness be left to the
civil courts. This feeling was strengthened
by the letter of Lieutenant-Governor Hau?
sier opposing the use of force; but at tbe
meeting of the Slate executive committee of
the Eadical party, the week before last, the
leading Radical officials went to the right
about and clamored for the armed aid of the
Federal Government. The United States
marshal and his deputies were galvanized
into astonishing activity. Scores of citi?
zens, suspected of Ku-Klux crimes, were
thrust into jail. Governor Scott boasted
that "measures had been taken'' for holding
a "Bloody Assizes'' in Columbia, in Novem?
ber. This appeared to be enough to satisfy
ihe demands of the most blatant Radical,
when, lo ! there is anether turn of the. screw,
in the shape of a formal proclamation by the
President of the United States, requiring
"all persons comprising Ihe unlawful com
"binations and conspiracies" in South Car?
lina "to disperse and to retire peaceably to
"their homes'' within five days. Even the
most rabid Radical sheet in the country does
not pretend that South Carolina is less peace?
ful, or more turbulent, tuan it was last mooth.
The Radicals admit that the United States
officials ar? hunting down, and capturing
suspected persons wilh all requisite vigor
aud with astonishing success. Tue reasons
which made military rule unwise and wron?
in September, exist and are stronger than
ever in October. And yet, martial law we
must have. May we not fairly Buppose that
Lhe proclamation was withheld, not because
it was unnecessary and indefensible, but be?
cause it might have had a prejudicial etleci
upon the elections of last Tuesday? The
Radicals are victorious in Ohio and Penn?
sylvania, and they are rouled in T/xas.
There is no cause now to fear the influence
upon the North of a return to the recon?
struct! ul policy of the sword and the fetters;
and as Texas lias dared to be free, the
Southern States, through South Carolina,
must be taught at once that they have no
rights which can be allowed to interfere
wilh the schemes of President Grant and
his unscrupulous advisers. In spite of elec?
tion laws and martial law Texas elected
Democrats to Congress. It was time that
Virginia, Alabama und Georgia should be
reminded that they are only free by suffer?
ance, and that a slroke of the Presidential
pen may, in u moment, deprive them of ull
lhe boasted liberty guurunteed by a patched
and derided constitution.
As wc are taught to be thankful for small
favors, we should rejoice, we suppose, that
only Spartanburg, York, Marion, Chester,
Luu-eu?, Newberry, Fairfield, Lancaster and
Chesterfield ure doomed to military despot?
ism-only bine counties out of thirty-one.
As to York, il '3 sufficient to say t'nut
the Grand Jury of the county have investi?
gated every case of Ku-Kluxwm reported to
them by Colonel Merrill and Congressman
Wallace, who gave Senator Scott the infor?
mation upon which hu based his letter lo
the President. They reported in open court,
after an inquisition eight days in length,
that il was u taie that any persons had re?
cently been whipped in the county, and ihut
only four acts of violence hud tuken place
since last July. All lhe particulars of the
four cases arc given. Only one of them
could, by any straining, be attributed to the
Ku-Klux. lu Newberry, the Stale Court
has not met, and can tiot meet, because Gov?
ernor Scott refuses to commission the legally
elected county commissioners. All the
facts are sel forth by lhe Grand Jury.
No Ku-Kluxism is charged by the Rad?
ical press against this county. Fair
Held is as tranquil as a summei 's day. One
case of Ku-Kluxism, which was reported, is
proved by the Wiunsboro' Netts lo be with
out truth. Against Lancaster not a word
has been said. Chester has been quiet for
many months. The last and only trouble
was when a band of negroes made an allack
upon lhe Town ot Chester and were repulsed
by the whiles. In Chesterfield one case of J
Ku-Klux murder is reported, and Hie lead?
ing Democrats deniaud Hie names of Hie
suspected-persons tbat they may be instantly
proseen1 ed. The Columbia Union declines
to give tbe name of ils informant who said
he, ar.? all the people of the county, knew
who the murderers were. About Spartan
burg our information is less specific, but in
Ibat county there is no tcrious disturbance
even according to the Radical pre?. And
yet the proclamation of President Giaul
roads as though armed forces of rebela oc?
cupied thc severa! couulies. lt ii uv. t:-vr.
that the execution of the laws of the State
are hindered and obstructed ; for the courts
meet regularly, except where they are pre?
vented from meeting by the failure of Gov?
ernor Scott to commission the officers elect.
The courts have Republican judges, Repub?
lican prosecuting officers, Republican draw?
ers of juries. If they have not done their
duty-and we believe that tbey have-the
responsibility rests with the Radical party
who retain in office men whom they believe
to be incompetent and weak. It is not true
that the execution of the laws of the
United States are hindered and obstruct?
ed; for the officers make arrests and drag
their prisoners over the country with a pica?
yune guard, and no one troubles them. It
is not true that the constituted authorities
of the State are "unable to protect the peo
"ple." Last January, Governor Scott, in a
message to the Legislature, solemnly de?
clared that "the civil law of the State" was
and should be sufficient for the protection of
the humblest citizen. Last week Governor
Scott (as reported by the Charleston Courier)
vehemently opposed martial law, which he
declared was "a mistaken policy." Norhas
any Radical paper in South Carolina dared
to assert that, in any county, processes of
law cannot be served and arrests made. No
person has resisted arrest All who have
been accused of Ku-Kluxism, conscious of
their innocence, have surrendered without
demur. It is, moreover, gross folly to say
that the organization, in the counties named
by President Grant, are "so numerous and
"powerful as to be able to defy the consti?
tuted authorities." Frem beginning to end,
President Grant's proclamation is founded
upon statements which are as true as the
sensational stories about the Tidal Wave, or
Encke's comet. President Grant has been
grossly deceived, or he is the williog tool of
a band of unscrupulous knaves who fear
neither God nor devil. 'We might add, en
pissant, that there is something very ingenu?
ous in the request that the Ku-Kiux will de?
liver up to the United States officers their
"arms, ammunition,uniforms and disguises."
In the happy land familiar to Nursery song,
roast-pige, with knife and fork erect in their
crisp brown shoulders, run to and fro squeak?
ing a request to be eaten. But living men
do not usually put a jope around their neck
and hand the end to a ready executioner.
When the Ku-Klux are caught, they will be
convicted, because tbe courts are organized
for their conviction. We do not expect
them-if such there be-to plead guilty, and
iurnish the proof necessary for their con?
The Presidential proclamation, we pre?
sume, i3 only a tirst step. We may expect a
suspension of the writ of habeas corpus,
and every other deviltry that Radical politi?
cians can suggest. But, people of South
Carolina, be not afraid ! Let. your courage
"mount with occasion." Hope on to the joy?
