The repudiation ot the State debt has been
solemnly agreed upon by a caucus ot colored
legislators, held In this city, presided over by
Beverly Nash, the negro senator Irom Rich?
land County. Comptroller-General Neagle
earnestly opposed repudiation, but his argu?

The feeling of insecurity engendered
amongst holders of South Carolina bonds by

and the anxiety felt by people, not In New

tines to maoitest itself in the way of requests
for lnlormation of various kinds. Thus one
Kntleman writes: "Why don't they (Scott,

Investigation into Kimpton's books promised
to the reporter cf the World ?" And "Why
don't they expose any errors. If such existed,

Very strong rumors are circulating of further
discoveries ot' over-issues in the bonds of the
State, swelling the amount lar beyond the
highest figures yet published. Ia contradic?

comes a statement that in most Instances the

The news that Union County has been plaeed
under martial law has created a protound
impression here, and lt ls leared that Richland
County wili be the next one attacked. Further
restrictions have been placed on visitors to
the Ku-Klux prisoners confined here. Messrs.
Rodgers, Farr, Greer, Dawkins and Rogersi
the Union prisoners, were to-day committed
for trial by Commissioner Booser.
The last day of the Fair was delightful, and
the Fair 19 pronounced ora all side% to have
been a perfect success. The premiums were
awarded to-day, and nearly all of the Charles?

DOINGS AT THE8TATE FAIR.
A Rainy Day-The Tournament-A
[FROM OrE OWN CORRESPONDENT ]
COLCMBIA, S. C., November 9.
It is a tradition here that Jupiter Pluvlus
smiles upon the State Fair, and the oldest resi?
dent can only call to mind one or two occa?
sions when the festivities of fair week were
interrupted by unwelcome rains. The fair has
hitherto been a prognostic ot fine weather, but
this year it failed. The City of Columbia got
out of its bed this morning, and while discuss?
ing its poached egg and morning newspaper at
Its early and frugal breakiast. read with alarm
in the unerring iorecaste of the Signal Service
department that "southerly winds and rain"
were probable for the south Atlantic State?.
The gloomy prediction was speedily verified,
and before ten o'clock the rain was tailing in a
determined, relentless way that boded no good
to the fair. It was a sad blow to the Slate Agri?
cultural and Mechanical Society. The exhibition
had just been fairly organized,and with pleasant
weather during the remainder of the week
would doubtless have been an eminent suc?
cess; but the lates willed otherwise, the rain
fell alike on the just and the unjust, and the
pleasure of the fair, for this day at least, was
destroyed. The attendance was good, how?
ever, and the discomforts ol the dav were en?
dured with that easy good nature that always
prevails In a crowd whose only raison d'etre IR
the gregariousness of the human animal. The
programme for the day was adhered to, and
much Interest was manifested In each event.
The various committees accomplished large
amounts ot work, inspecting the articles of?
fered for exhibition and watching the busy
play of the machines. An excellent trial ot j
the twenty-one cotton gins was made, each
gin being allowed three pounds to a saw,
and each machine carrying thirty er
forty saw?. The stock was duly inspected,
and the ribbon of victory fastened to such ot
the honored cattle as the judges deemed
worthy of that distinction. A game of base
ball was prayed between the Mutual and the
Robert E. Lee clubs, resulting In a victory for
the former, by a score of 26 to 5. The tourna?
ment, which had been necessarily postponed
yesterday, also took place. There were lour
prizes offered for the tournament and they
were carried off by Messrs. Hammett, Beau?
ford, James and Muldrow. The '-tin cup,"
which ls an honorable distinction accruing to
the worst rider, was won by Mr. Levy. After ]
this came a trotting match for one hundred
dollars, mlle heats, best three out of five. For j
this there were only two entries-Hickory
Jack and Boyce Sc Co'.s Rip Rap-and the race
was gallantly won by the first named horse in
2:5|; 2:51 and 2:511. This closed the day's
amusement, and carriages and umbrellas
The event of this evening In the city has
been, of course, the annual ball of the South
Carolina Club. The best hall in the place (Er?
win's) had been engaged, the rather Irregular
floor had been nicely waxed, and every ar?
rangement made to insure a pleasant even?
ing. The general management was In the
hands of the executive committee ot the club,
headed by Major Wi1 liam T. Gary, president,
assisted by an efficient reception committee,
General J. B. Kershaw, chairman; music com?
mittee, Mr. J. M. Rhett, chairman; committee
on supper. Colonel A. C. Haskell, chairman,
and a floor committee, whereol the principal
manager was Carlos Tracy, Esq. The mem?
bers of the committees were designated by
various badges, that of the president.
Major Gary, being particularly noticeable. It
was a handsome rosette of blue corded
ribbon, with fringed streamers, quite aa sig?
nificant and much more appropriate than the
little red ribbon of the Legion of Honor that
has decorated many a worst man's breast.
The party was an early one, and the bugle
blast for the first quadrille was sounded
promptly at eight o'clock. Most of the guests
were present at that hour, and before ten
o'clock the floor was crowded, and the br,li
was a pronounced success. From ten o'clock
till midnight were the pleasantest hours of the
ball, and during those two hours the little hall
contained as fair a convocation of the "beauty
and the chivalry" of this good old State as was
ever witnessed. Returning to my quiet quar?
ters, and endeavoring to recall the events of j
the night, I find lt difficult to remember the
names of a tithe of the fair ladles whose pres?
ence graced this second reunion ot the South
Carolina Club,but among them were Miss Annie
Hampton. Miss Preston and Mrs. Dr. Darby,
Miss Jordan, the three Misses Aldrich, Miss
Connor, Miss Russell, (an Augusta belle) Miss
Bonham, Miss Wlgfall, Miss Moore, the two
Misses Gary, Mies Kershaw, Mrs. George Tup-1
per, and last and least (In years and Inches)
Miss Dora Tupper, a darling child, not yet in
her teens, but with the air of a queen and the
beauty ot a goddess. It ls perhaps unfair to
make such a partial enumeration of the ladles
who honored this evening's party, but, how- j
ever grateful the task might be, lt would be
almost impossible to designate all of the fair !
women and brave men wno trod the floor of
Erwin Hall to-night. It was a coruscation of |
beauty, of which I have caught and reflected
only a spark here and there. There were
fourteen dances on the card, arranged In the
good old-fashioned style ot the galop, waltz j
and polka, alternating with cotillons ranging
from the Bouquet to Les Lanciers, and it was
not until the church bella chimed the hour ol
two and chanticleer croaked his saucy
challenge to the coming day, that the merry
party took to their carriages and rolled home
to dream of their South Carolina ball of'71.

larger than last week, but not up to the cor-1
responding week ot 1S70. The receipt? at all

decrease since September 1st, this year, ot
113,361 bales. The exports from all of the ports
for the week were 41,151 bales, against 52,280
for the same week last year. The total ex?
ports lor the expired portion of the cotton

[PROM OCR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
NEW YORK, November 8.
Tammany ls overthrown. In the whirlwind
evoked from the exposure of the frauds of its
leaders it has gone down, dragging with lt the
Democratic party of the State. Fortunate will
it be in the end if the catastrophe has not de?
stroyed the party In the nation. The result of
yesterday is one ol the most complete politi?
cal revolutions in our history. But a few
months ago, the power of William M. Tweed
seemed so Irrevocably established that the
doubter would have excited universal derision.
In a day the autocrat has been stripped of
every particle of his great prestige, and ls as
naked and forlorn almost as the beggar In the
streets. He has been re-elected to (he Senate,
it ls true, but he will never be permitted to
take the seat. So utterly used up is he that
the popular appreciation ot lils condition took
the shape, mis afternoon, of a report that he
had fled to Europe. .
Tammany Hall as a political organization Is
broken up. The resignation and retirement
of Peter B. Sweeney takes the brains out of
the concern, The defeat of the Tammany
candidates on the county ticket by enormous
majorities shows that the rank and file of the
party over which Tammany has held almost
undisputed sway, have abandoned it. Last
evening the Tammany Hall building on Four?
teenth street, which on election nights in the
past was wont to be brilliantly lighted and
crowded with cheering Democrats, was dark
and deserted, as If it typified the desolation
which had come upon its masters.
Tammany fell before the ripened wrath o?
the people. You In Charleston, who have just
passed through a similar political revolution
and have overthrown corruption at the polls,
will understand the feeling that pervaded the
masses here. I never before, not even In a
Presidential contest, saw such Intense interest
in an election. Men who had not voted for
vears, turned out this time. Citizens who
have refused to dabble in local politics, be- j
cause they were so dirty, took off their coats
and went in and worked this time os If their
salvation depended upon the result. How
widespread this feeling was, was illustrated
in the case of the venerable A.zariah C. Flagg,
a Democratic statesman of the days of Monroe
and Jackson, who blind, aged and crippled as
he was, came lrom a home In which iuflrmlty
has secluded him for the past twelve years,
and borne to the polls by a loving daughter
and strong-armed friend, deposited bis ballot
for the Reform candidates. I walked through
the lower portion of the city about noon yes?
terday. Nearly all (he wholesale stores were
closed-Wall, Broad and Nassau streets ap?
peared as they do on a holiday. The banks
were open for the transaction of necessary
business, but there was no hurrying to and fro
of merchants and clerks, there was no busy
throng of brokers and speculators on the side?
walks, and even the rattle of vehicles on the
cobblestones was wanting.
At night Print inn-House square and the
neighborhoods ol the newspaper offices were
filled with a dense mass of human beings. The
Herald rigged up a huge bulletin board and Il?
luminated lt from a calcium light hung at the
Astor House opposite. In the other offices
the returns were bulletined on posters. The
New Yorker Journal (German) had Its dis?
patches read from a stand erected la front ol
irs office, and beguiled the moments between
their receipt with music lrom a lull brass band.
As the reform victories, one after another,
were announced, they were received by the
people with vociferous cheering. The greatest
sat!slactlon was expressed in the defeat of
Ledwllb. the Tammany candidate for judge
of the Supreme Court, who had deserted the
reform movement at a critical moment to take
service with the enemy. The Germans were
especially delighted with the heavy majority
Sven to General Slge), the Reform candidate
r registrar. This ls, perhaps, the first in?
stance on record where twenty thousand Irish
Democrats voted for a German Republican.
The most desperate local battle was fought
in the seventh senatorial district, in which
Jimmy O'Brien was running for senator against
Bradley, the brother-in-law of Sweeney.
O'Brien ls one of the most unscrupulous poli?
ticians in New York and up In all the trickery
incident to local elections, and this was really
a case of Greek meeting Greek, for lt was
Jimmy against the Ring. Thousands of decent
people voted for O'Brien to strike at the Ring,
and he is returned by ten thousand majority.
His triumph puts him to the front as a party
leader, and there are many who already re?
gard him aa the "Bill Tweed" of the future.
The success of the Republicans lu the State Is
overwhelming. They have not only elected their
State ticket, but a two-thirds majority ot both
branches ot the Legislature; thus enabling
them to pass their bills over Governor Hoff?
man's veto. Another misfortune to the De?
mocracy ls, that the new Legislature will have
the redistricting ot the State under the cen?
sus ol 1870, which ls worth twenty thousand
votes to any party. Ot course, the deleat ls
attributed to the 'Tammany exposures. It Is
unquestionable, though, that the 12th of July
riots had a potent influence on the result.
They aroused a great deal of religious bitter?
ness, and, as I Intimated at the time, gave
new ll feto the secret Know-Nothing clubs. The
effect is exhibited not only In New York, but
throughout the country. The Democratic
party has met with defeat or heavy losses
everywhere In the North, except In New Jer?
sey, where the course ot Governor Randolph
and the popularity et Governor Parker saved
lt. And every Democrat from those States
with whom I have talked, charged their party
disasters to Tammany and the 12th of July.
Is the party ruined ? This ls a startling ques?
tion. But In the face of the rout of yesterday it ls
the question In most people's mouths. It the
Republican party, corrupt as lc undeniably ls,
weakened by intestine feuds and carrying
such a load as U. S. Grant, can beat the Dem?
ocracy everywhere in the North on the eve of
a Presidential contest, what possibility is there
of a success next year ? If the party rallies
and coes into the presidential fight, could lt
survive a national defeat ? I have seen a great
many despairing Democrats to-day, and I have
heard most of them warbling the name of
Brown. It ls needless to explain that this
Brown is Gratz of Missouri. " We must let
Carl Schurz and the conservative Republicans
nominate Gratz," ls the general remark, "and
the Democratic convention must meet and In?
dorse him." " If the opposition Republicans
will let us have Joel Parker on the ticket for
vice-president," said a hitherto stiff necked
and uncompromising Democrat of the old
school, "I think I can manage to swallow
Rrown." The recent editorial advice of the
St. Louis Republican, the Democratic organ of
Missouri, and Frank Blair's speeches in Ala?
bama and Mississippi, are much canvassed.
They propose, you will remember, that the
Democratic party shall decline to take part In
the Presidential contest, keep up Its organiza?
tion tn the States only, and that its members
support the anti-Grant candidate for President.
lu the midst of defeat the news from New
Jersey is consoling. Parker has made a
splendid run. He is the only Democrat
though who could have been elected Gover?
nor, except Randolph, who ls at present inelli
gible. Jersey, so constantly the butt of we
metropolitans, has risen cons derably in the
estimation of metropolitan Democrats. The
popular fac?tie now ls, "0 let's move over in?
to the United States."
There were no new developments about the
South Carolina bond frauds to-day. The
bonds weakened on Change this morning,
and bondholders are clamorous for more In?
formation. Two of the newspapers to my
knowledge have diligent reporters out, and
are working up the case, even at the risk ot
having their bodies perforated with bullets
from the firearms of the doughty Dennis, who
threatens dire destruction to all who dare in?
vestigate. A number of South Carolina gen?
tlemen sojourning In the city have held sev?
eral Informal meetings, and it ls understood
that lhere will be a larger gathering In a night
or two. The purpose is to ferret out all the
intending rascality of the State officials, and
give it to the press and public. You will prob?
ably have particulars by telegraph before this
reaches you. NTM.

THE BLUE RIDQE RINO.
A Startling Array of Figures and Facti
-The Personnel of the Company-Cot<
of the Work-How the Job ia flan
[FROS! AS OCCASIONAL CORRESPONDENT.]
TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.
For the last two or three years I have beer
an attentive spectator of the course pursued
by the Ring that at present rule the destinies
of the Blue Ridge Ridge Railroad. HIthertc
they have had all their own way, but at the
coming election lt may be possible tor honest
men to wrest the railroad from their grasp. A
short review of their conduct, from one who
has hal considerable opportunities for Investi?
gating it,-may not be valueless.
In February, 1869, Major T. B. Lee, a per?
sonal friend of the president J. W. Harrison,
was engaged, at a salary of $3000 a year, as
"principal assistant engineer" to resurvey the
line. As far as I have been able to discover,
his entire railroad experience consisted in
having been employed for a year or two pre?
vious to the war as rodman, chain-carrier and
transitman under the surveying engineer of
the Blue Ridge Railroad. Organizing a corps
he reran the old line, (two-thirds completed,)
and also a line round the tunnel that had
been examined and condemned by the
The survey and estimates completed, con?
tractors were Invited to tender for the whole
line, one of the conditions being that they
were to advance $300,000 to the company be?
fore receiving any pay for the work. Cress?
well, Peterson & Co. took the contract, em?
ploying Thomas Steers as subcontractor. Not
fulfilling, however, the terms of their agree?
ment, and thus greatly damaging the Interests
of the company, Cresswell k Co. were paid
$75,000 and all the debts they bad Incurred OB
the railroad, on condition that they would
abandon the contract.
Instead of again putting the construction of
the line to public competition, the contract
was privately given to the individual (or cor?
poration) working under the title of "Thomas
Steers," on far more advantageous terms than
those given to Cresswell & Co. The new con?
tractor was to be paid In cash at the end of
each month for all work performed. Notwith?
standing the tremendous fall In gold that had
just occurred, the actual prices in dollars and
cents paid for several descriptions of material
was higher than in the previous contract. In
the remainder it was about the same. The
price of bridge masonry was Increased Hf ty per
cent. Materials that could not be called
"earth," and yet that might be worked and
handled with almost equal ease and cost, in?
stead of belDg paid for at the express valua?
tion In each case of the engineer, as in the
lormer contract, were to be clastilnVd as loose
rock at seventy-five Cents a cuoic yard. The
prices averaged at least double those paid to
any former contractor on IRK line before the
war, whose rates I have been able to obtain,
and there are very few who luve taken con?
tracts ir. the line that will uot come under that
category. Steera's prices arc, us a rule, also
at least tiny per cent, more than casu prices
paid on the Air Line and other honestly cou
ductfd railroads in the Routh. Thu price on
the Air Line lor earth is about twenty cents a
cubic yai'H (halt in bends ol Hie Coinpan.v.)
"T. Ste^ a* gets thirty eenie cann. Rock, tun?
nelling and masonry are high tn like propor
tion. What can be the reason of all this' Can
it be that Scott, Harrison & Co. are Interested
in the Steere contract?
Move. Messrs. Humberd k Hitchcock, Jones
and others, held contracts on the tunnels and
other sections ol the line, previous to ibe war,
at prices varying from thirty to fifty per cent,
less than those given to Steers ? Co. Several
of them (very responsible men,) Intimated to
the company their willingness to continue said
contracts. This initiated an extraordinary!
course of action. If work were commenced
on the South Carolina portion where these .
contracts lay, these men could force the com?
pany to renew their agreements on the former
basis. For a year and a half, therefore; this
portion of the line (the one least admissible of
delay.) was left unworked. In the meantime,
Mr. Lee was employed In running lines Innu?
merable between Walhalla and the Cbatuga
Blver. Eventually he found a route that he
estimated as cheaper and shorter than the old
line. No less than three ol the engineers em?
ployed on the survey (all thoroughly reliable
men,) have Informed me that the data used in
estimating the two roads were radically differ?
ent. The quantities of the old line were cal?
culated as a first-class road, as regards breadth
of roadbed, easy curves and grades, slopes of
cuttings, Ac. Those of the new line were cal?
culated only tor a second-class road, with nar?
row roadbed, steep slopes of cuttings, and
grades and curves fifty per cent, steeper and
sharper than on the old line. And yet, with j
all their hair-splitting and many other ingeni?
ous expedients, there was not five per cent,
difference in cost, at Steen's prices, between
the estimates of the quantities on the two
There were, however, two great advan?
tages^) in the new route. 1st. The directors
were not obliged to give the work to the old
contractors, with their low prices, (out of
which they could not possibly afford to par
bribes) but could give it all to T. Steers, at his
exorbitant rates. 2d. The president, J. W.
Harrison, Governor Scott, G. W. Waterman
(director,) John Cochran, T. Steers, T. B. Lee
(the engineer who got up the line and esti?
mates,) and others in the Biog, owned, or had
bonded, large quantities of land on and near
the line ot the new route. The Walhalla depot,
aud probably another stopping place, were In?
tended to be located on lands owned by mem?
bers of the Bing. Under these circumstances,
who could be surprised that Harrison, Scott,
Lee k Co. should hesitate a moment which
line to adopt!
The old line (two-thirds constructed) was
abandoned. It had been unanimously adjudg?
ed the best and cheaper location-when
scarcely begun-by Latrobe, G winn, Randolph
St. John, Bowlne, Fink, Griffin, an 1 others ot
the most eminent engineers in the United
States. The new line was recommended by a |
man whose sole railroad experience, as far as
I can learn, bad been gained by working In a |
very mediocre capacity, for a year or two,
under an assistant of one of these gentlemen.
It suema to be the opinion of all who were
connected with the road, whom I have had
opportunities of sounding, that the new line
was adopted before it wat? run. That tbe chief
engineer being powerless to prevent thejub,
determined to have as little to do with lc as
possible. He always gives out that he left It en?
tirely to his assistant, and that the line was
adopted solely on the figures and estimates of
Mr. Lee. I believe that he has never even
ridden over the route hlmsefi.
But when we speak of the new line, It must not
be supposed that there was only one. Mr.
Lee and a large and expensive corps of assis
tanta has been at work off and on for the best |
part of three years, in running lines between
Walhalla and the Chatuga River about eigh?
teen miles. No less than four of these have
been given out as the final location. First, the
old line. Second, one a mlle or two to the
south, through the Needle Gap-a place on or
near the celebrated Poor Mountain tract,
bought by Harrison, Cochran and Scott. This
line was loudly crowed up, as running through
a remarkably favorable country (there
were, as the Irishman said, "such a splendid
lot ot high hills to fill the hollows with.")
In the preliminary test-pits, however, nearlj
all the cuts were found, contrary to the esti?
mates, to be almost bare rock. 3d. Another
line was run to a grade of ninety feet to the
mlle, (about twenty-five steeper than the old
line.) Here, gaining wisdom by experience,
they decided to let well enough alone, and not
sink preliminary test-pits at all. Several deep [
cuttings were put through and culverts built,
when they set to work on the heaviest cut of I
all, ( running under the beds of two streams.
Yellow and Peter's Creeks,) and supposed (?)
to be mostly earth. They found, however,
rock, two leet from the surface nearly all
along, especially where the culling was eighty
feet deep. One-of the contractor's foremen
told me that he considered that cutting to be
a lar heavier work than the finishing of
Stumphouse tunnel, to avoid which this line
was run. Other cuttings on the Une are
very heavy and wet, and mostly rock. In
many placea Blips may be calculated on.
In fact the line was found Impracticable,
and abandoned after a great quantity of work
had been done. 4th. They have lately sur?
veyed a new route, Intended for a narrow
gauge. It is laid out wltb several miles of I
line at a grade of one hundred and fifty feet to
the mlle, both ways-vastly steeper than any?
thing hitherto known In this country ona first
class railroad, and fifty per cent, steeper than
the famous Altoona incline. I bare been in?
formed by several eminent engineers, that an
Incline of one hundred feet to the mile ls never
used by good engineers, except under very ex?
traordinary circumstances. The Hue through
the tunnel is about sixty-five feet to the mlle,
maximum, going west, and forty-six feet to
the mile going east.
How the little engines of a narrow gauge
railroad can surmount (and pull up a tram
with th" mj Ito trier grades than the powerful
broad g- >ge engines can, none ot my en?
gineering friends (Including severa' chief
engineers of narrow gauge roads) can tell.
They don't believe it-and I am firmly persuaded
neither do the Blue Ridge magnates themselves j
-and they don't care. DETECTIVE.

"Sailer little children to come unto Me," saith
the Saviour, "for of such," He adds, "ls the King?
dom of Heaven." The world is oft pronounced by
poets a wilderness. Much more graphically might
u be described as a prairie carpeted with flow?
ers. The little Innocents, whose musical prattle
and guileless glance, upon which sin baa not yet
set its seil of discordance or suspicion, are so
many Heaven-planted dowers strewed along our
paths, and the sadden wi mering cf the humblest
cannot fall to produce a pang in the heart not
deadened to every impression of beauty. The
Kingdom or Heaven, says its sovereign, ls the re?
alization or that which ls characteristic of the
child-innocence and purity-and when He
demands runt little children be "suffered"' to de?
part hence, and go forth from aa Impure world
?.unto Him," the pang of separation for the Chris?
tian ls counteracted by the certainty mat the
Father of all has garnered them to His own
"As the sweet flower that scents the mora,
But wi triers la the rising day,
Thus lovely was this infant's dawn,
Thus swiftly fled Its life away.
"It died ere les expanding soul
Had ever burnt with wrong desire ;
Had ever spurned at Heaven's control,
