of the importance ot the printed column as
well as that of plate glass and fine arcbltec-,
ture.- Readers of the New York city papers
Will notice a vast Improvement In Stewart's
column as well as an Increase in its extent.
-We have already noticed the Identifica?
tion of the body found in the East River, New
York, as that of young Pryor, son of Roger
A. Pryor. It Is not known in what manner he
came to his death, and prehaps the mystery
may never be cleared up. ecullar sadness
attaches to ibis severe domestic affliction in
the bright promise of the manner and loveable
character of this young* man. He had but a
little more than a year ago grad na tod at
Princeton with higher honors Iban bad ever
before been won in that institution by the
most distinguished of lis Alumni. The inter?
vening period has been spent by bim in a j
great, part at Cambridge, In England, where
ne won a prize in mathematics. A few months
ago he returned to the United States, and has
since been prosecuting the study of law in the
office of his father.
-Mr. Blond?n seems determined to invent a
feat in his rope-walking which shall finish him i j
at last. At a late performance to be given at
the Crystal Palace at Sydenham-lt had not
come off by last accounts-the tall masts that
support the rope were to be covered with tire
works from the ground to the top. When all
these wire well going, Blondin was to walk
forth on the rope bearing a great piece ol pyro- j
techny "weighing- about three hundred
pounds," which he would forthwith proceed to
discharge from "the altitude in the centre of
the rope." At the same time shells and mines
were to be exploded In every direction, and
the advertisement announces with much gusto
that Blondin "will thus be encircled with fire
for nearly ten minute?." This will doubtless
prove a charming spectacle to all who like lo
see a man killed.
-The New York Journal of Commerce says
that that city has "the finest fire department
in the world, not excepting that of London,
and of Paris under the Empire." The depart?
ment in New York is one that, by long ex?
perience of the workings cf a paid system,
has been brought to a high state of efficiency,
although"probably this has been accomplished
at a heavier cost than might have been the
case elsewhere. Its adoption has secured
several advantages which are plainly visible
to all classes. The rush of vast crowds to ?res,
niling up the streets and impeding the opera?
tions of the drem en, h as been done away with.
The men themselves work with energy and
skill. There ls not such a reckless waste ol
water as heretofore, and, in connection with
the insurance patrol, the exertions to save
goods and protect property from injury meet
with marked success. It 1B gratifying also to
note the diminution in the number ol fires.
-A Washington telegram of Sunday night to
the Ballimore Sun, says: "The advices to thu
Department ol Justice indica-e that the work
ol military arrests in the martial law district
of South Carolina ha's not been fully inaugu?
rated, though many persons whose imprison?
ment has been threatened are leaving that
section. A letter has been received here,
signed by the radical State senator Irom Marlou
County, protesting against that county bein?
Included in the presidential proclamation, on
the ground that lt is in a stute ol profouud
peace and quiet, and has uever been disturbed
by the so called Ku-Klux organization. This
official answers thal Marlon County ls Included
by ka typographical error or other mistake' in
the proclamation. But it is he who ls mis?
taken In that particular. Marion County was
reported lo the President by the Ku-Klux com?
mittee and the United States officials as beiDg
In the insunectionary district, and th? denial
of the lad by such an authoritative tom ce
creates no little surprise among officials. The
appeal to exclude Marlon County from the
martial law quarter will not be heeded."
-It would be amusing, if it were not BJBO
saddening, to peruse the advertising columns
ol the Chicago papers at the present time.
Nothing like it has ever been seen before, and
it is to be hoped nothing like it will ever be
seen hereafter. All the advertisements are in
reality just so many expressions ol grief, un?
certainty and penury. A few in the Tribune
begin as follows: "Wanted to Und, Swedish
girl Sophie, formerly living in my family;" "A
lost cow can be found at,"' Ac; "Two stray
trunks can be heard from at," A-c: "Taken
out of the flames, a dark bay mare;"' "Ten dol?
lars reward, and no questions asked, for a pall
full of dental instruments taken lrom," ?fcc;
"If the gray-whiskered man who was seen re?
moving from," &c; "Mr.-, please call at
-, and get your boy 'Georgie;' " "Mr.-,
go to No. -; your father is there." "Agnes
-will find her father at -." And so on
lor two long, closely printed columns. There
are also a number of "Missing" notices, and a
column of the very flneBt type is devoted to a
record of those who are "Lost and Found."
The whole city is more like a vast intelligence
office than anything thing else just now.
The Tools of Despotism.
Any one would suppose that the thousands
of negroes who, according to President Grant j
and Senator Scott, have been whipped and
maimed in South Carolina, would have been
able to 6apply enough affidavits to convict
the so-called Ku-Klux. In these cases a
little evidence will go a great way. Suspi?
cion is sufficient proof, where the accused
are condemned before they ore tried. Strange
to say, however, the revelations of the vic?
tims did not reach as far as was desired,
and the government resorted to that old
device of despotism-the use of paid spies
aid informers. Governor Scott, in his
interview with a Herald reporter, gleefully
announced that "the Ku-Klux organization
embraces those who claim to be the best
citizens of South Carolina," whose names
are known to "the government agents and
"spies, who for several months have been em
"ployed ir the disaffected counties." And
"I presume," said the Governor- "that the
"arrests now taking place are based on the |
''information so obtained." There can be no
mistake here. The victims, if they implica?
ted any one, did not touch the bigger fish
whom the Ku-Klux drag-net was intended lo
hold. A large sam of secret-service money
was sent down to South Carolina, and a
small army of paid spies and informers was
soon ready for action. They have been at
work "for several months;" hiding behind
doors, lurking under windows, violating the
privacy of private conversation and the sa?
credness of social intercourse. And what
manner of men will accept an employment
so contemptible and eo base ? Tboy must J
be and are the lowest of the low. Their
work is one which honest citizens regard
with mingled aversion and dread. These
know that just this system of political
detectives flourishes in despotic Russia, and
was full-blown in Imperial France. They
know that these mouchards, whose trade is
treachery, who receive their thirty pieces
every time they betray their friend, are the
convenient tools of the Napoleons and the
Alexanders of the centuries. These spies
and informers will manufacture crime to
order. They lio by rule, and boast of their
Than a system of espionnage, nothing is
more revolting to the English-speaking
nations of the earth. They treat it as in?
compatible with free government and popu?
lar liberty. Again and again, have the
giant States of the North and West con?
demned and denounced the very poli?
cy which President Grant now uses
for the ruin of the Commonwealth of
South Carolina. It is charged that the
unfortunates who hive been arrested in this
State are guilty of conspiracy against the
Government of the United States. That
Government, with its Ka-Klnx bills, paid
spies and arbitrary arrests, is guilty of con?
spiracy against the existence of the Ameri?
can Republic !
That Lying Proclamation.
Chester ls one of the counties in which,
icVordingto President Grant, unlawful com?
binations and conspiracies obstruct and
binder the execution of the laws of the State.
Phis is the pretext of the proclamation de?
priving Chester of tho protection of the
great writ of habeas corpus. Now, what is
the truth ? On Monday week, the October
term of the Circuii. Court began its sitting
as usual, at Chester, and has continued to
sit without let or hindrance. Nor were the
alleged Ku-Klux outrages passed over in
Bilence. The grand jury consists or six
whites and six blacks, and Judge Thomas,
(according to t ie Chester Reporter) after
instructing them io regard to the bills of
indictment submitted by the Solicitor, called
their attention to the receut proclamation of
the President of the United States, aud urged
them, by every consideration of fidelity to
their oaths, if they kuew of any outrages
that had been committed, to inquire into
them and make a full presentment thereof
to the court. He warned every man of
them, that it was his sworn duty, if he had
any information whatever in regard to such
cases, to lay it before the jury ; or, if he
knew the name of any person who could
give information in reference to the alleged
outrages, that it was equally h?3 duty to
give the name of such person to the jury, so
that he might be summoned beforo them
and required to testify. He knew of no
witnesses that he could send before them
who bad any information that would throw
any light upon their investigations ; he had
tio knowledge himself of any obstruction of |
the laws, nor did be know of any ono who
possessed sucii knowledge except, perhaps,
President Grant : and while he would lie
glad to have tho President before them so
that they might be enlightened as to when
and by whom the execution of Ihe
law3 had been obstructed iu this county,
it was impossible that his presence
could be secured. And when the grand
jury came into court for the purpose of re?
turning some bills of indictment that had
been submitted to them by the solicitor.
Judge Thomas took occasion again to urge
upon them the importance cf making a
searching investigation of all t^e violations
of law that were alleged to have been com?
mitted in the county, and suggested to
them thc propriety of sending a committee
to wail upon thc commanding officer of the
post to get any information that might be
in his possession, iu Oidvr that ihty might I
thereby be enabled to have partlee brought
before tbem to testify and make present?
ments thereon of all violators of the law.
These facts, which cannot be controvert?
ed, demonstrate, if demonstration were
needed, that, ao far as it relates to the
County of Chester, the suspension of the
writ of habeas corpus is without palliation
or excuse. The statement that the execu?
tion of the laws is hindered, or obstructed,
in Chester is unequivocally false !
The Stringency in the Money Market.
The London Economist gives an explana?
tion of the way in which the money market
is disturbed by the dealings of the German
Government with tht money drawn from
France in payment of the indemnity. The
writer says he has inquired into the matter
"on the spot," and the resalt is this: It is
estimated that the German Government has
received from France and holds $25,000,000
in English gold and $75,000,000 in French
gold. This enormous 6nm it keeps, it ?B
supposed, for the purpose of paying off a
five per cent, debt falling due at the end ol
the year. It does not desire needlessly to
withdraw so large a quantity of coin from
circulation, and oilers to lend it at three and
a half per cent, bat it asks for security Bach
as few are willing to give, and the loan, with
such security and at such rates, bas no at?
tractions for the German banks, so the
money lies in the treasury. A large sum has
also been received from the French in silver
five-franc pieces, but these do not go into
circulation either, because the branch bank
of Berlin at Frankfort, acting under govern?
ment ordere, has refused to receive them at ]
the conventional rates of 2 gulden 20 kreut?
zers, at which tbey have always hitherto
passed. It is estimated that about $15,
000,000 are in thi3 way kept lying idle, and
the Frankfort and other banks which count?
ed on it as part of their reserve have been
compelled to raise the rate of interest. The
object of the government in throwing this
large quantity of silver ont of currency is not
very apparent, but it is supposed to have
some connection with the contemplated
plan, of which the Emperor has spoken in
his recent speech to the Reichsratb, of a re?
form in German coinage. The Berlin Gov?
ernment contemplates a cbaDge not only
from a silver to a gold currency, but the
establishment of a uniform basie for the
coinage of the whole Empire. In the mean?
time, the locking np of the money, is pro?
ducing keen pressure in the money markets
of Europe, and particularly in London,
where the French have borrowed a consid?
erable portion of the indemnity.
The Rascally Scheme of tbe Ring-A
[Prom tbe Columbia Union, October 34.]
We learn from the Charleston papers that
an effort is being made by the defeated can?
didates at the late municipal election to con?
test the seat of Mayor Wagener.
Perhaps we are not BO well Informed upon
the subject as some of those now at work in
thlB questionable business, for we confess that
this 1B the first intimation which we have had
that the election was not fairly and honestly
conducted. If there was fraud used at the
late election, why was it kept eecret until this
late day ? Why was there not some showing
made at the time, if the election was not fairly
conduoted ? It looks to us very Uko an effort
on the part of fairly defeated candidates-so
far as we know-to prolong their lease
office. If this be so, those engaged .In the
operation will find that their action will not
be sanctioned by that portion of the Republi?
can parly which believes In the will of the
people as being the highest law.
