-The Albany (Ga.) News learns that the

to make cotton enough to psy out, bpt they
are unwilling to struggle under the incubus ol

introduced in the House this wee.;, calling on
the President to kform Congres?, specifically,
under what section of the act he buB suspend?

-Tn? people and the authorities of Cincin?

-The message of the Governor o? North
Carol na shows the debt of that State to be
thirty-four millions eight hundred thousand
dollars. The people are unable to pay the in?
terest on this sum, and the Governor recom?
mends the sale ol the railroad interests of the
State to prevent repudiation, bul at the same
lime says no financial policy should be deter?
mined upon until the facts ccunecied with the
debt are ascertained, la order that some con?
clusion may be reached as to the disposition
of the llabiliiies of the Slate. After the mt s
sage was read a resolution was offered in the
House and referred, redling that as the debt
waa created by strangers, elected under bay?
onets, wno voted moneys to railroads aod
otherwise embezzled the funde 01 the State, a
provision should therefore be made for repu
diatlag the entire State debt.
-The family name of the Earl ol Chester?
field, whe has just earned the immortality of a
cable notice of his death, having died of the
same disease i rom which the Priuce of Wales
seems likely lo recover, was Stanhope. He
was the seventh earl of the same title, and was
born In 1831, making bim ut the time ot Lis
death forty years of age. He snc.eeded his
father to tbe tl le in the year 18G6, and never
having married, leaves no coi to enjoy the
title which will, in consequence, descend to lils
cousin, a Mr. Geoigd Philip Stanhope. Tho
most interesting feature connected w.tn the
deceased and his relatives of the Stanhope
bloodisthat the dandy sh Phillp Downes Stan?
hope, Earl of Ches erfleld, who wrote the
famous cynical and heartless letters to his son
upon'the rules ol deportment, was a member
of the same family. Apart trom this, the Stan?
hopes are sufficiently respectable, ns the fami?
ly was of some importance as lar back as tho
reigns of Henry III and Edward I.
-A Wellington letter to the Baltimore Sun
says : "These Republican senators and mem?
bers who have an i ved here, and who have
expressed any opinion, do not expect that
mnch important business will be done this ses?
sion beyond passing a oi l reducing taxation
and the general appropriation bills. The sup?
porters of the administration expreB) their
confidence In thc nomination and re-election
of Grant, and declare that moat of the Presi?
dent-making for ihe session will be confined
to the Democratic side. The anti-Grant Re?
publicans do not appear to develop much
strength in the House; Indeed, lt is said there
. are not haifa dozen who can be counted on.
while Messrs. Sumner, Schurz and Tipton are
the only senators positively known in the
Senate to be against Grant's renomination.
The Democratic senators are very geuerally
opposed to joining bands with the anti-Grant
men until the latter show some positive or?
ganization that would warrant a coalition on
general Issues before the people. It is evi?
dent that there ls to be no precipitate
action, on the part ol the Democracy in
Congress on the Presidential question, and
it ls doubtful if anything positive results
from the caucus to be held early io the ses?
sion. The feeling at least now appears to be
that the lesser should come to the greater."
-Now that the horses and carriages, the
Jinenand eisner sen ?ce?, beJoaiiiog to the
I ex-Emperor's estate nave been nearly or
all fold, the attention of the acquisitive i
at Paris ls devoted to the sale o: "ie Im]
wines, which is now in progress at the Lo
The great quantity takes the public by
prise, for lt was announced that what wit
Prussian occupation, the siege of Paris an
Commune, the Imperial cellars bad been
ty well cleared out. On the contrary,
catalogue mentions one thousand bottle!
fifty-seven casks. Included In the list an
ward of twelve thousand bottles ol a
claret called Montrose, ten thousand bc
of Chateau Leoville of 1858, two thousac
Branc Mouton, and nina thousand of Cha
Lafitte of the same year, which connolss
esteem highly; besides this, there are a
six hundred bottles of Chateau Tquem or
which will be eagerly sought. The stoc
Burgundy is far less abundant; of the hig
marks, such as Chambertln, Romanee and
Vongeot, there are only a few hundred bol
There are scarcely more than one thom
bottles of champagne. The collection of R
wine is extremely meagre, with the excet
of Johannisberger. Of this rare viutage t
are advertised five hundred bottles fi om
Tuileries, two hundred and five from :
tainebleau, and fl ty-one from Compeigae.
addition to all this, there are fine old r
and sherries, with a goodly quantity of bra
and a very little absinthe-enough in
aggregate to stupefy one ?Uh astoalabn
and make one's mouth water.
i /' The Combat Deepen?.
.*>Veh&ve reason to believe tbatmovern?
now afoot, whose nature cannot, at presi
be made public, will lead to the shattei
of the Columbia Ring, and may send
guilty leaders to keep company with
Tweeds and Connollys of New York.
There bas been, on the part of the t
payers, abundant feeling, but very li
practical action. Every other man ba
plan of his own, by which a fraudulent d
may be shaken off and the iniquities of
rulare be fully exposed. The newspap
have dished up debt statements, with sa
and without, until the public have sicket
of figures, and plead for something fr
and new. There was danger, indeed, tl
the agitation against the Ring would so si
mer down, that the culprits might put oe
bold face and laugh at the opposilh
What the people required, as we bave sho
from the beginning, was a compact body
able gentlemen who would examine t
diff?rent plans of action, choose the be
and, as representatives of the tax paje,
carry on the fight. To them inform?t^
could be given which cannot properly
printed in the columns of a newspape
They could consider such suggestions
the skill and experience of distant co-labc
era might enable them to ui??ke. lu lin
they would be the head and centre of tl
movement; a body from which the publi
might expect the work which, in Ne
York, was done by the famon3 Committee <
Seventy. It is plain that the task would l
an unthankful one. Only an exalted sen;
of public duty could leal any set of privat
gentlemen to undertake IL We did bellen
however, that there were citizens o' Soat
Carolina who wi "ld come to the front an
shoulder the public barden. And the even
proves, we thins:, that we were not mis
takeo. We have every reason to believ
that, through the agency of treExecutiv
Committee of the Taxpayers' Convention
the people may count on obtaining such i
ooancil of war as they both needed and de
aired. The prospect for smashing the Mm
is Letter and brighter than at any tim
sinos the work of digging out ihe truti
? We are confident that the public will giv<
to whatever committee may be appoint
ad their full confidence and united shpport.
A set of officials who are entrenched in thc
State Capitol cannot, in an instant, bc
whipped, disgraced and driven forth, with
toe brand upon their foreheads. The struggle
will be hard and long, bnt when a break is
once made in the enemy's line, the result ol
the contest will not stand in doubt We
undertake to say thu, when the Ring are
attacked in earnest, proofs of their ras
oalUy will pour in with a rapidity which
viii not leave Hie offenders a ghost of a
chance io escape.
Tho presentment of the Grand Jury in re?
lation to the fiscal condition of Charleston
County fairly takes one's breath away. A
sufficient tax bad, it was thought, been
levied, and, nevertheless, there'are outstand?
ing claims against the county amounting to
one hundred and forty-five thousand dollars.
It seems to us that the financial affairs of
Charleston County need investigating quite
as badly, in their degree, as those of the
State. _ _
Our special correspondent informs us that
it is reported in Radical circles, at the State
capital, that Governor Scott is preparing to
flee from his "beloved State." It will, in?
deed, be a happy day when South Carotina
goes Scott-free ! Aad, perhaps, his Excel?
lency might have, in a week or two, as
mach difficulty in obtaining bondsmen as is
experienced by the contrite Connolly. Just
at this time Ohio may be a safer place than
the Palmetto State, and the Continent,
where Garvey lurks, would be better still.
Grant on Amnesty.
President Grant, in bis message to Con?
gress, after volunteering to prejudge the
cases of the so-called Ku-Kl ox prise a rs who
are now on trial, seems suddenly to relent,
and suggests a general removal of disabilities
under the Fourteenth amendment, as a sure
way of making everybody happy. How this
plan would work in the other Southern
States we will not undertake to say; but in
Sooth Carolina, at least, there is, even at
this time, no lack of honest and capable
men who are already eligible, under all the
amendments, to public office. The difficulty
with us is, that we cannot possibly elect
them. The mighty majority of intelligent
sable citizens' In this State have been BO
thoroughly drilled In party tactics, by the
handful of white rascals to whom President
Grant has handed over the control of our
State Government, that there is but scant
hope of a change for the better, as far as
the ballot box is concerned. That'd what's
the matter. _
W The Proof in a Nutsbell.^^^
The demand of the taxpaying public for
a thorough overhauling of tho official fiscal
transactions of the State Ring is founded
upon the official statements ol those wor?
thies, and not upon suppositions reports of
hostile committees or the sensational arti?
cles of the opposition press. It is not neces?
sary to make a display of figuring, or to
foiind ingeni?os conclusions upon hypothet?
ical statements ol bonds printed and bonds
destroyed. "Without going beyond the pub?
lished and formal declarations of the Ring,
we have a sufficient justification of What is
said against them. The story is summed
up in three hues :
Total debt ol the State, ac- .
cording to Comptroller Nea
gle'sreport, October 31,1870.$ 7,G65,908 00
Total debt of the State, ac?
cording to Governor Scott's
report, September 20, 1871..% 9,528,564 00
Total debt of the State, ac?
cording to Treasurer Par?
ker's report, November,
IQ addition lo the SI 1,994,908 reported by
Treasurer Parker, there is a debt of $3,
773,000 iu bonds which are held by the
Financial Agent as security for loans, making
the total debt $15,767,908 ia November,
1871, against $7,665,90S in November, 1870.
During the year ending November, 1871, no
law was enacted by the Legislature author?
izing the contraction of a new debt. We
have, therefore, un iocreasj of $8,102,000
in twelve months, without the authority
of law. These figur?e, we repeat, are taken
from the official reports. They are not
We contend that the enormous increase
of public debt, admitted by Mes?is. Scott,
Neagle k Parker to have taken place, is a
prima facie proof of fraud, and warrants
instant proceedings against the persons we
have named. If they are innocent, and, in
some mysterious way, have not surpassed
their authority, the sooner it ls known the
better it will be for them and for the public.
WE give up much of our space to-day to
copious extracts from the elaborate ar?
gument of the Hon. Henry Stanberry in
support of his motion, before the United
States Court, to quash the so called Ku-Klux
indictment?. A full and verbatim report
of the argument, from which our extracts
are taken, appears iu the Columbia Union.
