COLUMBIA, November 17.
There are rumors on the street that under
tvery act authorizing the issue of State bonds
there ?TS been an over-issue. Rumor states
that under the act funding the bills of the
Bank of the 8tate there was an over-Issue of
bali a million. It ls rumored that under the
aot of 1868 for the relief of the treasury, there
were duplicate issues, making an amount
double that anticipated by the people. The
SCt for the conversion of securities, rumor
says, is even worse. The first issue was (rom
one to two thousand bonds numbered in red
ink. The second issue, of like amount, was
numbered In blue ink, and so on.
It ls asserted that parties here are preparing
-affidavits looking to suits against the persons
The stockholders of the Blue Ridge Railroad
met again to-day, and the reports of the offi?
cers were rendered. They entered Into a de?
tailed account of the condition of the road, es?
pecially of its financial embarrassments. Pre?
sident Harrison stated thal the negotiations
with Henry Clews & Co. had not bee i satisfac?
tory, and had retarded progress. He also
stated that six hundred tho i and dollars of
the bonds ol the road were hypothecated and
were held by H. H. Eimpton, financial agent
of the State, as security for two hundred thou?
sand dollars of advances. Eimpton refuses to
render au account, and gives as an excuse
that the State finance committee recommend?
ed the loan, and he prefers to charge lt In his
accounts against the State and not against the
company One hundred thousand dollars of
bonds are held by a national bank of this city
as security for a small advance to the contrac?
tors. All the others, amounting to over three
millions, are in the hands of George S. Came?
ron, the financial agent ol ?be company, subject
to the order of the president. All the bonds
used are hypothecated according to the Blue
Ridge act. lhe chief engineer recommends
that lhe narrow gauge be adopted, saving
over two and a half million of dollars in con?
struction. There was no election ot offi?
cers to-day, and the meeting adjourned till
to-morrow to await the arrival of important
persons to confer upon projects of consolida?
tion. Of the various plans the one most talked

THE VOICE OF THE PRESS.
Y The Bubble Will Bunt.
[From the Klngstree Star.]
The whole subject appears to us to be In a
muddle ol inextricable contusion and doubt,
and that no clear and satisfactory statement
bas yet been made. We know one thing, that
the bonds are now down to thirty-five cents
on the dollar in New York city, and that with
all the pretended financial ability ol' this Radi?
cal State government, it falls to lift them from
their depressed condition, or restore confi?
dence for them In the markets. There ls some
cause for ibis, and a cause too that bas but
recently develope I itself. Another significant
lact ls, that this great decline and want ot con?
fidence In State bonds obtains Immediately
where Mr. Eimpton, the State's financial
agent, resides, and where, ii there has been
no fraud or cause for suspicion, dealers In
these securities would not handle them so
cautiously. There ls evidently some well
founded reason for this great and sudden con?
traction of the markets. The bubble will
burst lc a lew days, and reveal the true condi?
tion of the finances of the Slate.
All Honest Nen Must Sustain l's.
[From the Barnwell Sentinel..
Does any man who has a particle of patriot?
ism left, who has the least lenee of justice
remaining, think of paying the debts Incurred
by this corrupt State government in Columbia ?
Are we so mean and low spirited as to tax
Ourselves, to make these scoundrels rich?
T?o ! ten thousand times no ! Let the misera .
ble speculators in Wall street, who bought
those bonds with their eyes open, at a great
depreciation, who knew they were stolen from
a poverty stricken and suffering people, let
them be the sufferers. We do not believe
the. c is an honest man. Democrat or Republi?
can, white or black, in old South Carolina, who
will not say emphatically, Repudiate ! Repudi?
ate ! And honest men, the world over, will
* An Argument on the Other Side.
[From the Torkvl le Enquirer.]
We regret to perceive that the Charleston
Courier referring to tue alleged corruption of
our State officials in regard to the bonded debt,
advocates out-and-out repudiation as a reliei
from our pe: ding ills; and that THE NEWS,
dwelling upon the same subject, advises the
people to refuse to pay the State and county
taxes now tailing due until a trustworthy ex
blblt ls made ot the entire liabilities of the
State, and until, furthermore, satisfactory
guarantees are given that lhe moneys of lhe
people will, hereafter, be honorably spent.
The wisdom of either of these plans Is ex?
tremely doubtful. If Governor Scott, Niles G.
Parker, Dr. Neagle, and others, who are
charged with perpetrating these alleged frauds,
are gullly of lhe charges, let them be brought
to the bar of justice In a legal manner and
there be made to answer for theil' misdeeds.
Our Slate oftmals are amenable to the people
for their act and the people have it In their
power to hold them to a strict accountability
for the faithful performance of their duties.
We have had the temerity on lormer occa?
sions to advance ihe old logy and somewhat
obselete doctrine that two wrongs do not
make a right, and that it ls better lor an
outraged people to seek redress of their griev?
ances in a legal manner ; and we think subse?
quent developments ef quite a recent date
prove the correctness of the policy we Indi?
cated. We suggest the same course In the
present Instance. Let us ignore the Idea of
repudiating legal obligations, and let the pto
Ele pay their laxes as they become due ; and
aving'dlscharged our duties pnperly, If our
public officers are remiss in the performance
ol theirs, let them be brought to condign pun?
ishment in a legal manner.

mon Pleas and General Sessions met on Mon?
day last. Judge Melton present, and adjourned
at noon on Tuesday. Nothing could be done.
No Jury. Three grand jurors and five petit
jurors to begin court with ! The present law
requires thal the Jury shall be drawn fifteen
days before the silting of court, and that the
jury commissioner, clerk, sheriff, chairman of j
the board of county commissioners, shall all
be present at the drawing. At the late draw?
ing for our district, however, two of these
officials were absent-chose to be absent, we ,
have no doubt-aud more tiwi that, mont nf |
tne persons drawn were never notified.
Judge Melton ls to return to Edgefleld on the

which do not require the Intervention of aJury.
In the meantime the course ol justice ls de?
liberately stayed by these Radical county offi?

WHY BULLOCK RAN AWAY.
The Plain Facts, of the Case.
[Georgia Correspondence Cincinnati Commercial.]
I will tell you why Bullock ran away. He
had issued to H. I. Kimball and others all the
bonds going to the Macon and Brunswick
Road, over five millions of dollars, while still
the road lacked seventy-five miles of being
completed. The work ls now stopped, and
the Mate bas of course been swindled. Kim?
ball ran short ol funds and got the Governor
lo over-issue the amount ot funds due him, so
that he could hypothecate them. He deposit?
ed them in New York and obtained au ad?
vance of sixty cents on the dollar. When the
lime came for him to redeem be could not do
it, and as the Legislature was about to meet,
they would be sure to unearth the whole thing,
expose the fraud and Impeach Bullock for vio?
lating the law. When Kimball failed, Bullock
made frantic efforts to get up the money
himself, so as to get back the bonds and show
that Kimball had not been overpaid, but he
failed. Some of the lessees ol the State Road
proposed to help him, but all would not con?
sent to it when they round the amount was so
large. This last, however, ls mere rumor.
At all events, Bullock failed to raise the
wind sufficient to set himself square on the
record, and went to New York to see what he
could do there. He had bis resignation and
"address to the people" all prepared before he
left here, but to be kept secret until he found
out what he could do in New York. He failed
to make any arrangement there, and with
certain impeachment staring him In the face
lt he came back, be let fly his address and re?
signation, and remains away. The conspiracy
against him was none other than a determina?
tion to impeach him ll he had misappropriated
the publie funds. Il' tbts could not nave
been proved against bim, and a clear case
made out, he would not have been Im?
peached. The Democracy of this State are
not anxious to make a martyr of Bullock,
and the majority of the Legislature are not
the men to commit perjury to remove an in?
nocent man, especially so when he has only
twelve months to serve. Not two months
ago Bullock told me that the present Legisla?
ture was one o? the best that had ever been
elected in Georgia; that they were capable and
honest, although Democratic, and much bet?
ter representatives of the people than the last
one. The notion about a conspiracy against
him, and 1 -another attempt at separation,"
must have entered his head alter he found out
to a certainty that he could not replace what
he had wrongfully taken from the treasury.
The fear that ran Bullock off was a conscien?
tiousness of guilt.

CLEAR AND HARMLESS AS WA?
TER- NATTANS'S CRYSTAL DISCOVERY FOR
THE HAIR.-A perfectly clear preparation In one
Dottie, aa easily applied aa water, for rest orin ir to
gray hair ila natural color and youth'ul appear?
ance, to eradicate and prevent dandruff, to pro?
mote the growth of the bair and stop its falling
out. It ls entirely harmless, and perlectly free
from any poisonous s J bit ance, and will therefore
take the place of all the dirty and unpleasant
preparations now In nse. Numerous testimonia s
have been sent us from many or onr most promi?
nent citizens, some or which are subjoined. In
everything in which the articles now In use are
objectionable, CRYSTAL DISCOVERY ls perfect.
It ls warranted to con'aln neither Sugar of Lead,
Sulphur or Nitrate of Stiver, lt does not soil fe
clothes or scalp, ls agreeably perfumed, and
makes one or theb st dressings for the Hair In
use. It restores the color or the Hair "more per?
fect and uniformly than any other preparation,"
and always does so la from three to ten days,
virtually reeding the roots or the Hair with all
the nourishing qualities necessary to Us growth
and healthy condition; lt restores the decayed
and Induces a new growth or the Hair mere posl
tlvely than anything else. The application of
this won lerful discovery also produces a pl" ant
and cooling effect on the scalp and gives the Hair
a pleasing and elegant appearance.
We call especial attention to the fact that a
limited number of trial bottles will be given away
gratuitously to those wlsalng to try lt. You will
n tice that In pursuing this course our aim Is to
convince by the actual merits of the article.

The vegetative powers oil lie are strong, bat In
a few years how often the pallid hoe, the lack lus?
tre eye, and emaciated form, show their baneful
influence. It soon becomes evident to the observ?
er that some depressing influence Is checking tba
development of the body. Consumption ia talced
or, and perbapajhe youth ls removed from school
and sent Into the country. This Is one of the
worst movements. Removed from ordinary di?
versions of the ever-changing scenes of the city,
the powers ot the body, too mach enfeebled t?
give zest to healthful and rural exercise, thoughts
are turned inwardly upon themselves.
If the patient be a female the approach of the
menses ls looked ror with anxiety as the first
symptom In which nature ts to show her saving
power in diffusing the circulation and visiting the
cheek with the bloom of health. Alas l increase
of appetite has grown by what lt fed on. The
energies of the system are prostrated, and the
whole economy ls deranged. The beautiful and
wonderful period In which body and mind under?
go so fascinating a change from child to woman
ls looked for In vain. The parent's heart bleeds

Nothing ls more desirable to such patients than

During the Superintendence of Dr. WILSON at

occurred to two patients. Real on nan lor a rrnre

INSANE ASYLUMS, and the melancholy deaths by
Consumption, bear ample witness to the troth of
these assertions. In Lunatic Asylums the most
melancholy exhibition appears. The countenance
ls actually sodden and quite destitute; neither
mirth nor grief erer vial's lt. Should a sound of
the voice occur lt ls rarely crti?alate.
