COLUMBIA, November 21.
It is understood that Governor Scott, IP his
forthcoming message, will endeavor to show
that the debt of the State does not exceed
thirteen million dollars. It ls also understood
that the State debt has been increased several
million dollars as one effect of the exposure
of the alleged bond frauds, owing to New
York loans being called in under the nnanciai

[Prom the Columbia Phoenix ]
Thc rumor mentioned in a telegram to THE
CHARLESTOS NEWS of Saturday In regard to a
fraudulent issue of conversion bonds is con?
firmed by subsequent investigations. The act
of March 23, 1869, entitled "An act to provide
for the conversion ot State securities," was
ptesed ostensibly to allow holders of stock ot
the State to convert lt into coupon bonds. Tne
second section provides that any person hold?
ing coupon bonds may, in like mannar, con?
vert bonds into ?tock. The first section w: s
to meet the wants of those who wished ? 520U
rity easily transferred lrom band to hand;
while the second section was, on the other
hand, meant to meet the wants of .such as
k wished a security, which, by being registered,
was made secure frena loss by thett or acci?
dent. The ace did not Increase the public
Under this act, the plunderers at first had
printed $3,500,000 in bonds. Ol course, such
of them as were used for the conversion of
stock are a valid debt. These can easily be
distinguished by their numbers. In addition
to the stock outstanding at the time of the
-passage of the act, some additional stock was
created by the conversion of bonds of small
denominations Into stock, which was then at
once converted from stock into bonds again,
but of large denominations-small bonds, such
as fillies, one hundreds, Ac, being always at
a disco 'int, com pared with larger bonds.
Of course,,!he Legislature Intended that
bonds '.DUB acquired by the treasurer should
at once be cancelled. Up to October 31, 1870,
$400,000 o? such bonds are reported. These, it
ls believed, were at once placed again upon
the market, Not satisfied with these small
pickings, it was resolved by the conspirator
to Issue $(,500,000 more bonds. Itw?3 8C?e
geoted by one of them that, to cuntir, te tl.
numbering np to so high a figure AS wou ' ~ .
chide $7,000 000, would attract attention, and
hurt them in the market. The numbers on
the second batch were, therefore, duplicates
of the first, the only difference being that blue
Ink was used instead of red. These bonds
were used as collateral security, and were
subsequently sold out by the holders. By re?
ferring to Section 7 of Article 9 of the Consti?
tution, le-will be seen that this attempted
increase ot the debt ls unconstitutional and
void. That section reads as follows :
"SECTION* 7. For the purpose of defraying ex?
traordinary expenditures, the State may con?
tract public debts; bnt such debts shall be au?
thorized by law for some single object, to be
distinctly specified- therein; and no such law
shall take effect unti' lt shall have been passed
by tne vote of two-thirds of the members
of each branch ol the General Assembly, to be
recorded by yeas and nays on the Journals of
each house respectively-and every such law
shall levy a tax annually, sufficient to pay the
intereaj>of such debt"
The' act of March 23, 1869, does not fulfil
these provisions ot the constitution. The
bonds Issued une".er it over and above the
amount legltisilely used in the conversion of
securities, are, therefore, so much waste
paper. These are the bonds now selling at

General Sherman on General Grant's
A reporter of the New York Herald reports
some remarks made by General Sherman as
part of an "interview" with that officer just j
grior to his departure for Europe on the fri
te Wabash. Being asked about the admin- ]
?ration policy in the South, the General
"I don't care to speak plainly on these mat?
ters. It ls not In my line of duty. I think,
however, that when the war was ended war?
fare against our brethren ot the South should
have ceased. The negroes are well disposed,
and a kindly people, but they are not, as a j
class, posted in the science of government;
they are apt to make mistakes and behave
rashly. But I have no doubt whatever that
everything will turn out all right in the end.
Tbe Union men In the South were never a very
fine class of people, and some down there now
would be better out of lt, but their presence
in the late insurrectionary States affords no
proper excuse for acts of lawlessness."
"Then, General, you do not approve of the
repressive acts 01 the Federal Government ?''
" I think a mistake has been made. They
are ntjt all rascals In the South. The majority
of the people are the best citizens of the re?
public. The young uien that followed the 're?
treating Confederates into Texas, thc: men of
the army of Virginia and the lads of the West
who leaned toward the South, were capital fel?
lows, though mistaken. These, in my opinion,
should have been Appointed to position under
the government as marshals, postmasters, in?
ternal revenue collectors andto other Federal
and State offices, Instead of being driven into
opposition, i really believe that these young
men represented the South, and that they

SUMNER AS AS INTERVIEWER.
Hoff Butler was Beaten at his Own
The Atlanti- Monthly for December gives an
account of the Interview between B. F. Butler
andi Senators Sumner and Wilson, of Massa?
chusetts, during the recent canvass by the
first for the Republican nomination to the
governorship of that State, and after the ap?
pearance of a newspaper paragraph, which
asserted by authority that the senators op?
posed Butler's candidacy. The Atlantic's ac?
count says :
Immediately after the General's arrival In
Boston he proceeded to Mr. Sumner's rooms
in the Coolidge House, and found the senator
busy ever his morning work, and comfortably
chatting with his colleague. Taking the morn?
ing paper from .his pocket, the General read
the paragraph above quoted. "This purports
to be by authority," said he; "ls this truer
'?Tea, General." "Turning to Senator Wilson,
"Did you concur, slr?" "I did."
> Alter an opening skirmish, the General be?
gan to insist that his speeches were not cor?
rectly reported; but the senator reminded him
that the Springfield and Worcester speeches
were evidently written out or revised by him?
self, and those speeches were enough. Baf?
fled at this point, General Butler brought up
bis reserves. "This all comes." he retorted,
"of your hostility to Grant. I am for him,
and you are against bim. I have foreseen
this, but thought it would not come before
May; but I am ready for it. Tou have always
been against Grant, and every measure ot his
administration." "Ah !" said Mr. Sumner,
"every measure ? Be good enough, General,
to name one." "The San Domingo treaty."
"Waiving the question," said Mr. Sumner,
"whether this was an administration mea?
sure, be good enough to name another."
To this there was no answer. "You are
silent. General; please mention one other."
The General remained tranquil. "You are
still silent, General Butler ! You men?
tion only the San Domingo treaty,
and yet you allege that I have been against
everv measure of the administration. I ask
again lor an answer. Now, General," (after a
pause,N "have you not been against the treaty,
so that in opposition to the administration we
are even ?" General Butler then proceeded to
quote certain language which he alleged Mr.
Sumner had used in disparagement of the
President, addlug. "I have an affidavit of it."
The senator sali that this matter of obtaiomg
affidavits seemed a little too much according
to the practice of the criminal courts. "But,"
said he, "General, to be frank, do you think
any better of General Grant than ? do ?" No
answer. "You are silent, General, you do not
answer me. I ask you again, do you think
any better o.' Grant than I do? I know you
do not. This I know." Here Senator Wilson
Joined in the conversation, and lt became less
pointed, and in a few minutes General Butler
took his leave.
.1 RADICAL CRT FOR REFORM.
The Republican Party Mast not Become
a Co-operative Thieving Association.
[From the Springfield Republican.]
Tammany hasn't by any means bad a mo?
nopoly ot fraud. Supposlog we Republicans
turn our disgusted gaze from that decompos?
ing corpse Ions: enough to take a lair look at
sundry State Governments at the South, which
call themselves Republican. Y'et men who
are honest enough In the transaction of their
own private business, shake their heads re?
provingly whenever a Republican journal
alludes to the notorious facts tor any other
purpose than to deny, or befog, or belittle
them; they fear that "the party" will sustain a
damage. Just here the moral comes in. The
Republican party cannot afford as a mere
question of good poller to Identify It?
self with corruptionlsts; 'lt cannot afford
to defend fraud, or to cover lt up, or
make excuses lor lu or tolerate It In any way,
shape or manner. The condition, not only of
its usefulness, but of Its continued ascendancy.
ls that lt snail be, what it calls Itself, the party
ot honesty-the party of good morals. The
day that lt becomes, even in appearance, a
co-operative thieving association, lt will be
time for its sagacious members lo chalk up
"Ichabod" over the front door, and seek a
new political tenement Mr. Greeley, we see,
ls optimist enough to believe that this day
hasn't got around yet, and isn't likely to for
some time to come. We hope from the bot?
tom ot our hearts that he Is right-that his
prophecy will come true. Above all things else,
we need in this country just such a national
house cleaning as he describes. It cannot
come too soon. It bas got to come sooner or
later. If the Republican party disdains to
handle the broom and mop, it will infallibly
have to abdicate Its position as housekeeper.
In the possibility that lt may indulge In illu?
sions upon this point iles, to-day, its greatest

What Governor Campbell of Wyoming
Thinks of it.
The telegraph has mentioned that Governor
J. A. Campbell, of Wyoming, in his message lo
the Legislature, on the 7th instant, had en?
dorsed the favorable working of woman euf
frage in that Territory. Tne Governor's lan?
guage ls as follows:
Women have voted In the Territory, served
on juries and held office. It is simple justice
to say that the women, entering for the first
time in the history of the country upon these
new and untried duties, have conducted them?
selves in every respect with as much tact,
sou mi judgment and good sense as men.
While it would be claiming more than the
facts justify to say that this experiment, ina
limited field, has demonstrated beyond a doubt
the perfect fitness ol woman at all times and
under all circumstances for taking a part in
the government, it furnisher at least reason?
able presumptive evidence in her favor, and
she has a right to claim, that so long as none
but good results are made manifest, the law
should remain unrepeated.
The telegraph reports that a bill has been
introduced-into the Legislature ?to take away
from women the coveted privilege.

NEW YORK. November 21.
At eleven o'clock this morning, the steamer
Mary Powell, with the reception committee,
and about five hundred persons, Including a
large -'umber of ladles, proceeded down the
bay. O 'er one thousand persons had assem?
bled on the pier to witness the departure. The
steamer was gally decorated with the Bussian
and American flags. Nearly all the vessels in
the bay were dressed with flags, and many of
them displayed Russian colors. Broadway Is
thronged with persons awaiting the parade.
Great numbers arrived (rom the country on
the early trains to-day. The buildings on
Broadway and other principal streets were
decorated with flags. The National Guard is
out in full force. The weather ls fine, and the
reception will be brilliant.
LATER.-The crowds on Broadway are so
dense that locomotion is almost impossible.
Every window and space from which a view
can be obtained is occupied. Ten thousand
troops are in line, extending two miles. Alexis

During the formal reception, Major-General
Dix addressed the Prince as follows:
Your Imperial Highness-In the name of
the citizens of New York, I have the honor to
tender you a cordial welcome to the United
States. It Is a great gratification to us to see

A HORRIBLE DEATH.
The Effects of Eating Diseased Meat,
[Prom the Columbia Union.]
There seems to have been a case of trichina
on Monday, to Judge irom the following ver?
dict of the inquest held by Coroner Coleman,
yesterday, over the body ot an unknown man
at the guardhouse in this city. Dr. Gibbes
made the post-mortem examination, and the
Jury returned a verdict that the deceased came
to his death from "a quantity of cellular
bodies all through his muscles, aod In the
muscular tissue of the heart, and on Its sur?
face. These cellular bodies are cysts, contain?
ing a species of worm, which was caused by
the deceased eating diseased meat."
In the above case, the post-mortem exami?
nation revealed the fact that the man wa9
literally filled with trichina;, the most of them
as large as a pea. They were in his heart, lo
his brain, and In fact, everywhere. The agony
of the man was such, that in one ot his fits lie
burst open his heart. He is said to have be?

place was taken with a fit on the cars, and
from thence was carried to the guardhouse for

BA B Y-RAISIN Q EXTRA ORDIN?R T.
The Hospital Dom of Moscow-Ari Array
of Babies-Babies Hatched by Ha.
r hiiiery-What Becomes oe" the Found.
Fourteen thousand babies !
That is just the number of babies they had
In 1867 in the great Hospital Dom, in Moscow.
Where did they come from ?
Well, they came mostly from the City of I
Moscow. Some of them we.-: foundlings,
some were the offspring of naval and military
officers, and many belonged to the merchants
and tradespeople ot the city. This great baby
hospital ls the largest In the world. It ls a
great baby-ralslng machine. If a man ls a
fowl (and many men are foul,) as Diogenes
says, then this hospital is the great national
chicken-hatcher for the Russian Empire.
This great baby bospital ls managed thus: The
hospital is divided into, perhaps, fifty wards.
One ward with competent physicians and
nurses will take care of babies one and two
and three days old-foundlings.
Another ward with other physician nurses
will care for all the babies- perhaps one hun?
dred, from three days to a week old.
In another ward will be all the babies from
one week to two weeks old; In another those
from two weeks to a month old; In another
those from one month to two months; in
another those from two months to lour
months; and so on till one ward will take
charge of children ten years old.
There Is one ward especially devoted to
babies with "scald head." Another ward takes
pore-eyed babies; another malformations;
another babies diseased through paternal sins.
Bach ot these sick wards has one constant phy?
sician, who makes the disease ot bis ward a
specialty. Ii lt is the ward for sore-eyed
babies, then the physician ls posted on that
diaease. He bas doctored babies with sore
eyes by the thousands. He knows every
phase of the diaease. Besides being skilfully
educated as an oculist, he has the experience
of years-all the time doctoring sore-eyed
babies. What wonder that he becomes profi?
cient, and that he should kuow constantly
what to do with any difficult case of sore eyes,
which might puzzle the most experienced phy?
sicians who had not mule that particular
disease a specialty.
So In the other sick wards, there were physi?
cians who looked after scald head, and made
lt a specialty. For years this physician had
attended thousands and thousands of cases
of sore head. He bad aeen the diaease in
every form, except the symptoms of political
sore head, which seemed to have taken hold
of Mr. Greeley, Mr. Cbase, Mr. Frank Blair,
Mr. Wendell Phillips, and among American po?
litical babies, Mr. Waterbury and the Toung
Democracy, who want a new deal in the city,
and the Young Republicans, who want a new
deal among the customhouse and posto Alee.
WHEN THE BABIES COME
they enter at the general office. Tbe clerk

when she wants to see It, calls, hands In her
check 912, and the baby with the correspond?
ing check ls produced.
As soon as the body Is In possession of the
hospital officers, lt is baptized and sent to its
The nurses-wet-nurses-are healthy coun?
trywomen, the wives o? ex-serfs (Mosheku.)
The diet of these women ls so selected that
they shall produce large quantities of health?
ful milk. The bosoms of these women are
oftentimes immense. Their dress waists are
always above their bosoms, which gives them
a very singular appearance. They are larger
at the waist than at the shoulder.
TREATMENT OF BABIE9.
The babies are fed, washed and dressed with
the utmost regularity. Each nurse in a ward
has a specific duty to perform. Take the ward
having the week-oid babies : One norse will do
nothing, from morning till night, but undress
babies; another nurse will plunge them under
streams of warm water'and wash them; an?
other will dreaa them up and toss them away,
while another will follow and nurse them. So
they go, up and down the aides ef the ward,
each baby being washed, nursed and dressed
a certain number of times each day. The little
thing learns to like its treament. Sometime
the nurses give them a toss of several feet
into the beds, or from one woman to another,
and the little thing will laugh and screw up the
After being nursed, they are rolled up tight
like an Indian baby and laid away. Their
hands, arms, legs are all wound up with strips
of linen cloth. This is the only criticism I
could offer against their treatment of babies
this pinioning their hands and feet.
Many good respectable mothers whose hus?
bands are in the army or navy, or even well
to-do tradesmen, send their offspring here to
be cared for. The treatment ls so superior
that by far fewer babies die than would die if
left to the best care of a fond mother.
Yes, hatching babies! There ls a funny
machine here for hatching prematurely-born
children. Little "wee bits" of babies, whose
mothers have to sive them up at the age of
alx, seven, or eight months, are here cared
for In a manner so nearly like nature that the
baby never knows lt ls born at all. It ls
rolled up in downy swaddling clothes and kept
In a dark place warm with steam, and these
great, rough-bearded men act to lt like a
mother. Many of these unfortunate little
things which come into the world prema?
turely, through great convulsions and fright,
like the Chicago fire, are thus made to live.
By-and-by, when they are old enough, they
are brought out to the light, and the anxious
mother calls, hands In her check, and sees for
the first time her poor little unfortunate baby,
smiling, lat, and happy. Heavens, what
transport of delight some of these mothers
show ! They seize the little angels, press
them to their bosoms, and cry to God a prayer
WHAT BECOMES OF THE BABIES. ?
Thia is a hard question. Those belonging to
the well-to-do merchant class are tagen home
as soon as the dangerous period is passed.
The cast-away are trained up by the govern?
ment-the males becoming officers in the
army and navy (0, Fifth avenue Belles .') and
tbe females becoming actresses and assistants
in choruses In the great theatres. Some be?
come the wives of priests-all drifting Into
social circles above the ex-serfs. One ot the
most agreeable officers I met in Mosco- - was
a captatn of Infantry, who was once a mother?
less foundling.'-[Eii Perkins in the New
York Commercial Advertiser.]

A RECEP TIO S AT THE VATICAN.
The Pope on the American Calamities.
A correspondent writes from Rome to the
New York Evening Post under date of the
The Pope to-day held a reception at the
Vatican, at whlcb a score or more of English,
American and Italians were present These
visitors were escorted to the usual waiting
room, a rather dreary yet stately apartment),
marked with the Papal arms, adorned with
faded frescoes, and with a throne at one end.
The ladles, dressed in black and wearing black
lace veils, and the gentlemen, arrayed in ordi?
nary evening costume, bul all without gloves,
were ranged on Beats along thu wall, and
during the hour of waiting could beguile the
time- by speculating upon the Identity of the
various cardinals, priests and other ecclesi?
astical officials, who from time to time flitted
by on their way to private audiences with
The eomlng of the Pontiff was announced by
the appearace at the door of two Swiss guards
in the Papal uniform of red and yellow, but
otherwise there was no pomp of preparation,
Following a half dozen of military men and a
dozen or so of ecclesiastic officials came Pius
IX, dressed in a long white gown, bound
around the waist by a silken sash trimmed
with gold. On his bead he wore a white
skull-cap. He was lntrodueed to his visitors
by an official, and spoke a few words to each.
To the group ot Americans the Pope showed
especial attention. Placing his hand on the
head of the little girl who was one of the
party, be expressed his pleasure at seeing
strangers Irom such a distance. "There have
been many Americans here this season al?
ready," said he, In excellent) French. "Your
country is now experiencing great suffering
through vast conflagrations. I don't refer
merely to the destruction of Chicago, but to
the great fires In the woods- beyond lt. This
s all very sad: but remember, we are all In
the hands of God."
Crossing to the other side or the room Plus
IX proceeded to speak to three ladles who had
?laced themselves there apart irom the others,
hey all fell on their knees,, and one of them,
grasping the Pope's hand,, covered it with
kisses, while she anxiously poured forth some
hurried words as if asking a favor which to
her was ol the greatest importance. It ls eti?
quette not to reply to the remarks of
the Pope at these receptions unless he
should make some direct question; but
this lady disregarded all rules In the
anxiety of her appeal, and Pius IX was obliged
to cut her short by turning to the assembled
company, to whom he gave in Italian the usual
benediction. Almost all knelt at this moment,
the cardinals and priest? setting the example.
Then, with a courteous Inclination ot the head,
the Pope left the room, followed by the clergy.
Plus IX ls a very handsome old man, with a
manner at once shrewd and bland. He ap
Bears to be In excellent health for a person of
ls- advanced years, and though he had a
shuffling galt inseparable perhaps from his
rather inconvenient costume, there was noth?
ing in his actions to denote physical weakness,
or anything approacnltn^'decrepltude.

a few years how often the pallid hue, the iacIMu?

development of the body. Consumption ts tauted

and sent into the country. Thia ls one of the
worst movements.. Removed from ordinary di?
