CHARLESTON, FRIDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER I, 1871.
THE SURRENDER AT SEDAN.
A MOMENTOUS INTERVIEW AND ITS
Moltke Immovable-Bismarck Has no
Faith In Ora tltnitc-Germany Blast
Have a Lasting Peace.
The follow'ng account ot the significant ne-(
gotiations attending the surrender of Sedan,
written by Captain D'Orcet, is taken from a
work by General Ducrot just given to the
We were introduced into a parlor on the
ground floor, where we awaited for about ten
minutes the arrival of the man who was to ac?
quaint us with the wishes of King William.
At last General Mol ike entered, accompanied
by Count Bismarck, General Blumenthal, and
several officers. Aper a cold salute Count
Moltke inquired of General de Wlmpffen
whether he bad proper powers and credentials,
and upon th* afflrmalory reply of the latter,
asked to vet l'y them. This being done, Gene?
ral Wlmpfleu presented Generals Castelnau
and Faure. Count Moltke wished to know in
what character these two generals were pre?
sent. General Faure replied that he had come
as chief ot staff of Marshal McMahon, simply
to accompany General Wimpffen, but with?
out any official character. General Castel?
nau then sold that he was the bearer of a
verbal official communication from the Em?
peror, but that lt was only to be made
at the end ot thc conference, In which,
however, he waa not otherwise authorized
to take part. Count Moltke presented Count
Bismarck and General Blumenthal by simply
pointing with his finger to each of them. We
then took seats around a square table covered
with a red cloth, in the following order: At
one Bide ol the table Count Moltke. to his left
Count Bismarck and General Blumenthal; at
the other side of the table sat General Wlmp?
ffen, alone; behind him, and almost in the
(background, were Generals Castelnau and
Faure and the other French officers. There
were also in the room seven or eight Prussian
officers, one of whom, upon a sign from Gene?
ra'. Blumenthal, placed himself near the man?
telpiece, on which he leaned forward to take
down all that was being said during the con?
ference. Alter all were seated perfect silence
prevailed for a moment, and lt was felt that
General Wimpffen vras embarrassed as to how
to begin the conversation; but Count Moltke,
seeming determined not to break silence,
General Wimpffen began. I should like to
know the terms of the surrende which his
Majesty, the King ot Prussia, intends to grant
Count Moltke. They are very simple. The
whole army to be prisoners, with arms and
baggage; the officers may retain their arms as
a testimonial ot esteem for their courage, but
they will be prisoners of war like the men.
General Wimpffen. These terms are very
bard, and it seems to me that the French army
.deserves something belter for its courage.
Could not a surrender be obtained on the fol?
lowing conditions : "The town and the for?
tress, with the artillery, shall be handed over !
to you. You shall allow the army to retire
with its arms, bag gaze and flags, on condition
that lt will not serve again during this war
against Prussia. The Emperor and the gene?
rals will engage their word for the army, and
the officers will pledge themselves personally
and In writing te keep the same terms. The
army will be conducted to any part of France
designated by Prussia, or to Algeria, there to
remain until th* conclusion ot peace."
He then began to enter into details regard?
ing bis proposition, Beemlng to consider the
conclusion 01 peace near at hand; but General
Moltke remained impassable, and contented
himself with replying that he could make no
change in the conditions. General Wimpffen
renewed his request. He first appealed to the
sympathies which his personal position might
Inspire Count Moltke.
A PATHETIC APPEAL.
General Wimpffen. I arrived here only two
.days ago from the Interior ot Africa. My mill
Uky reputation until now bas been spotless,
aid here I am ordered to take command in
the middle of a battle and am thus fatally
forced to attach my name to a disastrous sur?
render, the whole responsibility of which I am
.compelled to assume without hav'.ng myself
prenared the battle that led to lt. You, who
are a general, like me, you con understand
better than any one the bitterness of my posi?
tion. It ls possible for you to soften my
sad fate by granting me more honorable
terms. Why would yo*' not do lt? I know
very well that the principal cause ot our disas?
ter was the fall at the outset of the battle of
the gallant marshal who commanded before
me. He would not, perhaps, have been the
victor, but he might at least have operated a
good retreat. As for me, if I had commanded
at the outset, I dc not say that I should have
done better than Marshal McMahon and gained
the battle, but I should have prepared a re?
treat; or at least, being better acquainted with
our troops, I should have succeeded in uniting
them in one supreme effort to effect a sortie.
Instead of that, I am bound to assume the
command in the battle without knowing the
situation ot my troops. In spite of all I might,
perhaps, have secured a retreat but lor an un?
fortunate incident which it ls useless here to
relate. [This was doubtless an allusion to the
confusion of orders r .ul ting from the tact that
Marshal McMahon had handed over the com?
mand to General Ducrot, who exercised lt up
to 10 o'clock in the morning, when General
Wimpffen claimed it on the strength of a letter
from the war minister of which he was the
bearer.] General Wimpffen continued in
the same strain; but, seeing that Gene?
ral Moltke was little moved by th s personal
pleading, he took a different tone, saying :
"If you cannot grant me better terms,
I cannot accept those which you want
to Impose upon me. I shall make an appeal
to my army and to its honor, and I shall suc?
ceed In cutting my way out or in defending
myself In Sedan." (It must be owned that he
himself did not appear to be convinced ol
what he said.) He was interrupted by Count
Moltke, who replied, "I have great esteem for
you. I understand your situation, and am
sorry not to be able to do what you ask me;
but os for attempting a sortie, that ls Just as
Impossible oe tr, defend yourself in Sedan.
Assuredly you have troops that are really ex?
cellent; your crack Infantry is remarkably
?ood; your cavalry bold and enteroiIsing,
our artillery ls admirable, and has done us
much harm-toe much harm-but the greater
part of your infantry is demoralized. We have
ma^ to-day more than 20,000 unwounded
prisT er?. Not more than 80,000 men now
remain to you. It is not under such circum?
stances that you can pierce our lines, for you
know that I have at present around you 240,000
men and 500 mouths ot fire, of which 300 are
already in position to open on Sedan. The
other 200 will be there by to-morrow's dawn.
I:'you wish to convince vourself I can have
one ot your officers conducted around the dif?
ferent positions which are occupied by my
troops, and he will be able lo testify to the
correctness of what I have said. As for de?
fending yourself in Sedan, that ls quite Im?
possible; you have not forty-eight hours'
rations, and you have no more ammunition."
General Wimpffen replied. I think lt ls your
Interest, even from a political stand-point, to
grant the honorable surrender to which our
army ls entitled, lou are going to make
peace, and no doubt you desire to make it
soon. The French nation, more than any other,
ls generous and chivalrous, and consequently
appreciative of the generosity with which she
is treated. If you grant us the terms which
would flatter the pride of the army it would
please the country and diminish the bitterness
of defeat In the eyes ot the nation. A peace
concluded under such auspices would have a
chance of being durable, and your generous
act would open the door to a renewal of
friendly feelings such as ought to exist be?
tween two great nations that are neighbors
and such as you desire to exlsL II, on the con?
trary, you persist in using harsh measures to?
wards us you will Burely excite anger and
hatred in the hearts ol our Boldlers. The na?
tion would be likewise wounded In her pride
and Bhare the same feelings. You would thus
awaken all the bad instincts lain dormant
through the progress of civilisation, and you
would risk to Inflame an interminable war be?
tween France and Prussia.
BISMARCK HAS SO BELIEF LS THE GRATITUDE OF
Count Bismarck here replied. Your argu?
ments, General, seem on first thought to be
gafitouB, but will not really bear discussion.
Mc little bellet in gratitude in general, and
anv none at all II the gratitude ol a people.
One might believe in the gratitude ot n
sovereign, and sometimes in that of one's lam
Hy; one might even, In some circumstances,
place perfect faith la lt; but. I repeat, th
nothing to expect from the gratitud*

other, if they had solid institutions as ot
pie, If they had veneration for their trad
or if they had u sovereign firmly estab
upon the throne, we might believe in th*
itude of the Emperor and his son, and i
some importance to that gratitude; but f
last eighty years the eovernments of I
have changed with such singular rapid:
much out of the ordinary course of event
beyond all foresight that nothing can t
lied upon in your country; and that to

to imagine that France could forgive ou

envious, Jealous, and excessively proud,

war to Prussia-that is, to Germany-an
time you have declared lt as usual, from
ousy, because you could not forgive u

glory, but you thought that victory was a
opoly which was solely reserved for you.

General Castelnau here began, with a ht

for me to deliver thc message ot the E
Count Bismarck. We are ready to hear y<
General Castel nau. The Em peror has cbai

General Castelnau. Yes.

fully. ) In that case Liiere ls no change in 01

all he may be pleased to ask. (Here lhere a
peared to be a secret difference of opinion b
tween Count Bismarck and Count Moltke, fi
the former, lt seemed, would not have bet
sorry to terminate the war, while Moltke wa
on the contrary, deslrious of continuing lt.;
General Wimpffen replied: "We shall r
commence the battle."
Count Moltke. The truce expires to-mo
row morning at four o'clock. At four o'cloc
precisely I snail open fire.
Here all arose, and gloomy silence prevail?
for a moment.
RESISTANCE IS HOPELESS-ALL IS LORT.
Count Bismarck again addressed General c
Wimpffen. Yee, General, you have valiant an
heroic soldiers. I doubt not that they will d
ivonders of valor to-morrow and cause us ser
ous losses; but what good will it do you? T<
morrow you will not be auy further advance
than to-day. and you will have on your cor
science the blood of your soldiers aod that c
ours, which you will have uselessly caused t
be shed. Let a moment of mortification no
prevail on you to break up the conference
General Moltke will convince you, I hope, tha
to attempt resistance would be folly on you
All took seats again, and General Moltki
said: I assure you again that a sortie cai
never succeed, even if your troops were In thi
best condition. For, independently of th*
great numerical superiority ot my men anc
artillery, I occupy positions whence I cat
burn Sedan in a lew hours. These position;
command all the outlets by which you woulc
attempt to break the circle that encloses you.
and are so strong that it ls impossible to carry
General Wimpffen. Ob, they are not sc
strong as you would have us believe-these
positions are not.
Count Moltke. You do not know the topo?
graphy of the environs of Sedan; and here ls a
droll fact which exposes your presumptuous
and Inconsistent natioo. At th" outset ot the
campaign you distributed maps of Germany
to all your officers, when you had not the
means ot studying the geography of your
country, since you had no maps of your own
territory. Well, then, let me tell you, our
positions are not only very strong, but formid?
able and i m prej, a?le.
General Wliupifen had nothing to reply to
this strrn truth. Alter a brief silence he
said: I shall avail myself, General, of the offer
you kindly made me al the beginning ol the
Iconference. I shall Bend an officer to see
those formidable forces of which you tell me,
and on hts return shall take a decision.
Count Moltke (in a dry tone.) You will send
nobody. It is useless; you can believe me.
Besides, you bave not much time to reflect.
Tor lt is now m ia nigh r, and by four o'clock to?
morrow morning the truce expires, and I shall
not grant yon an inetant ot delay.
General'Wimpffen (already abandoning the
plan of examining the position of the enemy.)
And yet you must well understand that I alone
cannot undertake such decision. I must con?
sult mv colleagues, and I do not know where
to find'them at this hour in Sedan. It is im?
possible tor me to give an answer by lour
o'clock, and absolutely necessary that you
should grant me a prolongation of the truce.
Count Moltke obstinately refused. Count
Bismarck bent toward him and whispered a
few words in his ear, which seemed to signify
that the King would arrive at nine o'clock and
that it would be better to wait. Count Moltke,
in fact, arose and told General Wimpffen that
he consented to a prolongation until nine
o'clock, but that lt would be the last limit.
The surrender was by this time, in principle,
decided upon by General Wimpffen, and if he
did not sign lt Immediately lt was only to save
appearances and to dlminlsh'the responsibility
which fatally fell upon him, by dividing it as
much as possible with the other generals.
DODGING THE ISSUE.
The Organ' Refaces to Explain-A
The Columbia Union of yesterday says:
We shall not be drawn into a long contro?
versy as to State finances, lust at this particu?
lar time, and we trust the public will have
patience to walt until the facts shall be made
known, as they will be at a meeting ot the
Legislature, now only a lew days distant. If
there has been traud in the shape of an over?
issue ot bonds, or In any other shape, those
guilty will be brought to the bar of justice and
punished; but whatever may be the facts as to
this matter, the public shall' be kept apprised
of the condition ol things here, that they may
know to what extent this immaculate Demo?
cratic party ls responsible for the present dis?
ordered state of public affairs.
THE roi CE OF TEE TAXPATERS.
The People are not Fools or Slaves
Pay Only Honest Debts.
[From the Marlon Star.]
The taxpayers ot South Carolina stand
pledged to pay nine millions dollars, but no
more. If twenty millions be added, then we
Bay repudiate. We favor payment of all hon?
est debts, but we don't agree to let Kimpton,
Tim Hurley & Co. be our bankers, with them?
selves as cashiers.
To all tilings there are limits. South Caro?
lina may be, in one eense of the word, con?
quered, but her people are not exactly fools or
slaves. They don't intend both to be tyrannized
over by the general government, and to be
robbed by the State officials.
It seems that, politically, we have little
hope, and, financially, we will have less, If
we suffer our credit to be tossed about in
Wall street and enjoyed in Columbia.
Shall we Fill the Pockets or the
Thieves ?-Let us Ponder the Matter.
[From the Marlon Crescent]
What is to b ? done ? What can be done ?
These ant the questions we are to consider,
and we have very little time to think about lt.
Already the Lix-gatherer's notice ls out, and
the few dollars, which a barren crop year bas
given us must go to feed the cormorants In
charge of our treasury. We are called on to
send more money to fill the pockets of these
thieves who know confess to almost double
the debt they reported due by the State In last
May. We are to entrust our money to
those who have Increased our debt by mil?
lions, while taxing us four times the amount
we paid when our property was ten limes
more valuable than now. Will we do lt ? For
our own part we are ready tor any measure
whiob will relieve the people. It seems like
madness to entrust money to the custody of
those who, by confession, are convicted of
theft and fraud. Let us ponder the matter.
There must be a way to defeat this monstrous
HOW TO FIGHT THE RING.
Not a Difficult Task-Delays are Dan?
A citizen of New York makes the following
suggestions In a letter to the Phoenix :
You no doubt read with much Interest from
the New York papers the doings and wander
lugs of the magnates of the State of South
Carolina In and about New York. I Bee by my
last Phoenix that you treat your readers to a
dish Irom the New York World and the blazing
little Sun, about the millions which your peo
Ble have been, and still are, being robbed of.
ow, all this has been heralded and reiterated
over and over again, and I shall be pardoned
for Baying that no one except a "dam pbooi"
disbelieves lt. Now, why In the name of
common sense don't your people seek a
remedy ? Do you, or they, hope tor any relief
through a legislative committee ? And do you
suppose that any respectable and responsible
trust company or bank is agoing to take the
financial agency from the present Incumbent,
without knowing how the accounts stand ?
Why didn't your taxpaying convention raise a
committee ot three, with power to call for per?
sons and papers, and demand of the Executive
ot the State a full examination of all the books,
soth in Columbia and elsewhere, wherever the
taxpayers of South Carolina had lan interest ?
They would then have got the pulse ol Gover?
nor Scott and bis amiable attorney general.
They would never have dared to refuse BO
reasonable a reqnest. Did they refuse, they
stood convicted before the country of such
outrages as would have consigned them
out of hand to the same bourne where

undertake to say that with one good man-ac?
countant-and one good lawyer, both irom
South Carolina, and in the real Interest of the
State, and one man that I will name, who ls
now In the City of New York, I will blow all
those financial manipulators, ot whom you so
loudly complain, so nigh that they would not
come down to torment the people of South
Carolina again this side of the final resurrec?
tion. It ls not a difficult task by any means,
and if I could see a few of your men of brains
I could point out the road. Now is the time
for action; delays are dangerous. I have writ?
ten to my old counsel In Charleston upon this
subject, in a confidential way, and I desire
that you will treat this communication the
same. South Carolina to-day. with all her
misfortunes of Ku-Klux, martial law, and
wholesale robbery, con, if she will make an
effort In the direction Indicated, relieve her?
self al once ot a score of abominations, and,
in good time, raise henel! to the dignity and
credit ot any State in the nation. There ls
nothing vague or Illusory tu these suggestions.
I mean business, and if your people desire re?
lief, tbey must attend to business. It will not
do to fight euch wind-mills as the Union, and
carpet-baggeas. and Grant, and thieves, on
paper. Facts and a legal tribunal is what ls
wanted to Immediately secure the sympathy
ot all good men, and ultimately equal and ex*

NBW YORK, November 13.
The much-expected Grand Duke ts said by
down-town bulletin boards to hare arrived
somewhere lu the lower bay, but as we had
the sume announcement Saturday and again
yesterday without warrant, we shall not feel
sure ot our Grand Duke until we see him rid?
ing behind those (our cream-colored horses up
Broadway. His Highness does not know what
he lost by neglecting to arrive promptly at the
time he was first expected, some three weeks
ago. Our population, male aad female, was
ripe then to receive a Grand Duke. But this
watching and waiting, interrupted occasion?
ally by false alarms, has made almost every?
body sick of the business, and I dare say a
great many thousands of people will not budge
ont of their houses and stores now to gaze at
AB Alexis is to be a prime sensation for the
next two weeks, however, all the enterpris?
ing leading dallies have made extensive pre?
parations to write him up. The Jenkinses,
to whom is delegated the delicate and diplo?
matic task of interviewing his Highness, were
in a painful flutter on Saturday night when it
was announced by reliable dispatches Irom
Sandy Hook, for the twentieth time, that the
Kvettana with the imperial party bad arrived.
They rushed out of their several newspaper
offices in great baste, and embarked in all
manner of craft for the scene of the Interview.
Unfortunately for them lt was the Abreck, not
the Svetlana, which bad come. There was
nothing left to do alter this catastrophe but to
interview the captain of the Abreck.
One ot the Jenkinses, who went down the
harbor in his "steam yacht," has left us a re?
cord of the first meeting of a New York news?
paper reporter with the commanding officer of
the advance ship ol the Imperial Russian
squadron. The vigor with which the officer
was piled with questions must have given him
new and novel ideas of newspaper smartness.
The St. Petersburg reporter who would have
dared to have committed half as many imper?
tinences would have been in danger of Siberia
and the knout. The nautical Russian, how?
ever, took the infliction good naturedly, and
even condescended to indulge in hilarity. He
testified thai the Grand Duke was "nice" and
"amiable." On being Informed that the
American ladles were anxious to see Alexis,
he observed that Alexis was "a fine looking
boy." He does not dine with his mess, but
with bis tutor, the admiral. On au Interesting
subject we learn
"Has the Prince been seasick, to your
knowledge, since you left Cronstadt?"
"Seasick? seasick? How you mean?"
"Mal (le mer."
"Oh! No, no, no; he ls too much ot a sailor
Jenkins goes wild over the appearance of
things on board the Abreck. We are told that
at the elem of the vessel a marine is stationed,
with a "very determined expression." The
conversation on board ls carried on in a
"most gaunt tone," meaning, probably, the
Russian tongue. The costume of the officers
ls "not gorgeous, neither does it seem to have
met with much tailoring Bklll lo its construc?
tion"-the fashionable cut being a weakness
with Jenkins. Everything is scrupulously
clean from stem to stern, "corresponding ex?
actly with the seamen's dress." Drinking, also,
seems to be indulged in on board-and doubt?
j less Jenkins was willing to take his oath to
that. In conclusion, he relates that the quar?
antine officer, on coming on board, merely In- j
quired if there had been arty seasickness I
during the voyage, and on receiving a reply
In the negative, "Immediately declared ttl
Abreck past quarantine." Lucky Russia'iK.
What would have been their fate if the dread?
ful marine scourge had visited them ?
The successful Issue of the attack on the
New York Ring by the taxpayers and citizens
hos encouraged the Brooklyn people to
make an attempt to get rid of a similar in?
cubus, composed of Democratic and Republi?
can politicians. The stealage has not been so
great In volume, but, considering the relative
size of the cities, it has really been larger. A
mass meeting of citizens was held at the
Brooklyn Academy of Music on Friday. The
Mayor, " the honest old Dutchman" who has
Just been defeated for re-election, presided,
and among the speakers was Utile ulm. Chit

and red-hot Radical, General Slocum, the

candidate for mayor, A. A. Low, the tea mer?
chant and richest man In Brooklyn, and U. S
Dlsttrlct Attorney Tracy, himself up le his eye
lids in corruption. The meeting was a tremen?
dous gathering In point of numbers, and the
strongest feeling prevailed In favor of getting
at the ring and destroying lt Perhaps the
ring-smashing movement, which you Inaugu?
rated in Charleston a few months ago, and
which New York followed up so successfully,
may have been the beginning of a general
purification of our official service. Our down?
trodden and sorely plucked people will take
courage to rise In their own defence when
they see how readily the thieves fly before a
well-directed attack. The lesson will be read
to advantage by those who have unjust State
burdens to bear also. Mr. Beecher made the
Brooklyn anti-ring movement the subject of
his Plymoulh Church sermon last night.
Some mischtet ls afoot again, for Butler, of
Massachusetts, came on here post baste irom
Boston yesterday, and closeted himself several
hours with Grant at the Fifth Avenue Hotel.
The President ls in town to see bis son off on
a pleasure trip to Europe with General Sher?
man, (at the government expense.) There
port ls that Butler ls engaged in Presidential
combinations. He agrees to support Grant for
a price. A part of the price ls the removal of
Dan Sickles, as minister at Madrid, and the
substitution therein of Butler's friend, George
Wilkes, of the Spirit ot the Times. Grant and
Wilkes were once as thick as members of a
ring, and there was no ead of the presents the
iaiter was giving to the former. A pretty
sight on Harlem Lane, during the earlier visits
of the President to New York, was George
and Ulysses behind a fast trotter, the Presi?
dent holding the ribbons and both gentlemen
ornamented with cigars. There was a spirit?
ed engraving of it made, which may still be
found Tn some of the Republican barrooms.
It seems that Grant promised his horse jockoy
friend some good thing-the French mission
or the secretaryship of war, or something of
that sort, but afterward deliberately "went
back" on his plighted word. Wilkes was
dreadfully incensed, abandoned the President
to his own devices, and cleared out to Euro; e.
Wilkes was the peacemaker who Induced
Butler and Grant to shake hands, after the
quarrel produced by the bottllng-up report of
the latter. Now Butler does Wilkes a good
turn by making the President come down with
Ihe mission to Spain. N v M .

Nash ?he Repudiator-Rein. - Qt "the

Parker-An Impeachment Proposi?
[FRO? oca OWN CORRESPONDENT.
COLUMBIA, 8. C., November U.
The vultures* are returning In fut? force for
t?e winter's campaign, and all sorta of rumors
are afloat as to the Intentions ol the dominant
party lor the coming season. Governor Scott,
Comptroller-General Keagle and Attorney
General Chamberlain have, as your readers
are aware, been here some days. Messrs.
C. Bowen and P. ? Moses arrived to-day. and
Treasurer Parker le- expected to arrive UM
morrow afternoon. The latter officer willi |
have for one portion of his rather comfortless
reception the presentation of a mandamus,
obtained by State Superintendent Jlllson, to
compel him to disburse the money needed for
the salaries of the school officers and teachers,
or show cause for his neglect. There are hun?
dreds more of the minor officers of the State
who are anxious to see the treasurer in regard
to their claims for services, but there appears
to be but a small chance of the settlement for
some time yet of any of their little bills.
Senator Nash expressed' himself strongly
to-day on the subject of repudiation. He said
that the members of his race proposed, If
there were any repudiating to be done, to
strike first at the old bonds ot the Slate which
were Issued, to use his own words, at a time
"when be was a nigger." and which were
used to help keep them In bondage by paying
the patrol guard, building guardhouses, Ac.
He said he was lu favor of paying all the bonds
of the State which had been honestly Issued;
but if Buch citizens as were represented by the
Taxpayers' Convention were In favor of repu?
diating the new debt of the State, then his
people proposed to repudiate the old debt.
He said, however, that he would not under- J
take to forecast the action of the Legislature on
this subject until he had had consultation with
his friends in the party. The State officials
pooh-pooh the determination ol the colored
men to repudiate the bonds, and declare that j
they can control all that, and, remembering
the very simple and efficient device by which
this Legislature bas generally been ''controll?
ed" in the past, this seems eminently proba?
ble, unless, Indeed, the supplies of public pelf ]
should be In some way withheld from these
State officials for the next two or three months.
By the way, Ibis same Nash ls a man of great
Ingenuity and fertility of Imagination. His
ponderous brain ls occupied now with a plan
for deposing Governor Scott, which ls all very
well so far as that goes, but he proposes lo
substitute Dr. A. G. Mackey, late of Charles?
ton and now ot Washington, which reminds
one of the frying-pan and fire, King Log and
King Stork, and other climacteric similes. If j
he cannot make him Governor, Mr. Nash ls
quite willing to secure for Dr. Mackey the po?
sition of United States senator, from this als
trict; but lt is almost needless to explain that
both of these schemes are to the last degree
chimerical, for the reasons, among others, that
Dr. Mackey is very comfortably established in
his position at Washington, and that he ls not
now a citizen of South Carolina.
