arrived in Baltimore yesterday mom-tig.
Among the passengers are tho four Roman
Carbolic missionaries who are designed for
the mission iu the lower counties of Mary?
land among Ute colored population, and In
addition wm. have charge ol the colored
Catho ic church in Ballimore, now under
charge of the Jet nits. . The priests went on
board at Southampton* Tue arrangement has
been made by Archbishop Spalding. These
missionaries con.M: ?rom the Foreign Mission
Coiregedirst. Joseph, at' MW Pil', Middlesex,
England, near Loudon, and are Rev. C. Dow?
ling, fief. J. Gore, Bey. J- Nc onan and Rev.
C. Vignerout. They are accompanied by the
Very Rev. Dr. Vaughan, the foonder and
president of the English institution. They
were met yesterday, on the arrival of the
steamer, hf several of the Catholic clergy o?
Baltimore. It is the design of these. young
clergymen, the first: missionaries who have
left the college, to devote their Uvea to con?
vert ?nd promote the spiritual weitere ot tho
colored population of the United States."
-A distinguished party ot four Fet-Jee Isl?
anders have recently arrived in t his conn try.
They were in. St Joseph, Mo., a Tew days ago,
but, owing to the cold weather, their proprie?
tor, (for the visit seems to be a speculation,)
removed them to :he South for the winter.
They are said to bj specimens of the genuine
cannibals of the Feejee Islands, although one
of them. Princesa Obavah, bas become Chris
1 ianlzed, speaks English, and bas given up an?
thropophagy as a pursuit. "Ihe dis1 Inguished
visitor?," says C?f St. Joseph Herald, "were
four rh number. First In importance was the
, Princess ObaVat, a lat, lubberly female of
* about twenty-five Jears, the grand-daughter
- ol the Emperor of twp hundred thousand peo?
ple, i She la a Christian, and has lest all fond?
ness for human il-sh. Then in Importance

gentlemen last' named wore ol middle size,
strong-limbed and Etrong-nccked, with u com?
plexion between a copper-c?lor and a black,
with dark, curly and bushy hair.''
--=Tj?e_borror8 of the first lepotti of the re?
cent butchery of students at Havana are in?
tensified by the dfscirlptl?ng Which come by
maU. Tba ,ofl?nce for, which the volunteers
compelled* such a bloody reparation was the
breaking of the gio** that covers the niche
of Caatanon's togab, and the destruction of
TJ?^ove?-the grave of Gasman el Raero by
a party of thoughtujss boys freed frc.-. ;tc re?
straints of a medical lecture. There wa, not
even a pretence of a trial. The victims were
chosen by lot, one out of every five, and'it is
established that three out of the eight
?had - not been In the cemetery. The
Oldest ot these youths was not over
eighteen. The thirty-one not sentenced
to death by lot were condemned to the
chain-gang for periods varying from two to
ten years; and the sentences of these latter
were earned into such immediate execution
that they appeared with their hair cut short,
m convicta' dress, and guarded by armed vol?
unteers ?A the murdering of their classmate?,
which they were forced to witness. They are
now slowly dung under the severity of their
punishment. Tbe father of one of the vic
, tims w?s shot and wounded for tbe crime of
clasping the corpse ot bis son with tears, and
the mothers of two have*become demented
through grief. It is evident inat the condi?
tion of Havana cannot be made much worse.
The houses are closed, ouly mourning is worn,
?0 indies are seen at the opera, and murders
in the streets number many each day.
-A cavalry leader who wUl live in history
through the record ot one most gallant charge,
V time should obliterate the memory of all his
ether sei vices, hts just pissed away in the
I death of Sir Jamel Yorke Scarlett For ta'fa
' century!? soldiez,' lt ls chiefly through his dced
I at Balaklava that he will" be known to fame.
On that day the opportunity came for which j
he had waited forty yeas*.--Sir James was then
a brigadier-general, commanding the heavy
cavalry, and on that day of glory and disaster,
[ after the RUE siana had taken the redoubts, he
was ordered to charge with his brigade. The
?Busslah horse numbered twenty-five hundred,
! supported by artillery, and Scarlett rode at the
head cf only three hundred. The Turks
gathered on the uplands to witness the great
dee?, and the army held its breath as Scarlett
led the charge. The speed of his horse abd
his own Impetuosity carried him tar in ad?
vance of his men, accompanied by only three
aids,?nd, waving his sabre to hasten the ad?
vance, he plunged into the mass oi Russians
I ajd was engulfed lu the column, only to hew
his .way through with his fast following horse- I
meir, and to berne ont with five wounds and a
sabre cut through his helmet. Lori Riglan
pronounced this charge "one of the most suc?
cessful he had ever- witnessed,v and the na?
tion resounded with bis praise. Subs equently
General Scarlett was given entire command of |
tbe cavalry in the Crimea, and received the
Order of the Bath at the close of the war. In
i860 he was made adjutant-general. Among
the military honors be enjoyed at the time ot
his death were lieutenant-general, the colonel?
cy of the Fifth Dragoon GuardB and the com?
mand of a division at Aldershott. In politics
Sir James Scarlett was a Conservative, and
wa* returned in that interest in 1837, but lost
his seat in July, 1841. His death took place in
his seventy-third year.
Matrimony Hade Easy.
The bili "to regulate the granting qt j
"divorces," which has been favorably re?
ported on by the Houae Committee on the
Judiciary, is, in many respects, a flt com?
panion for the famous bill to make ita mis?
demeanor to call a person "a thief, rogue,
'scoundrel or poltroon" in "a rude, angry
'or revengeful manner." Under its benign
provisions,'the yoke of matrimony, may be
made as light ns it is tn Chicago?, and, in a
little.whjle, divorces should be obtained In
Soatn^3b?icaJ?Da as ej^Uy.-fes inrTgtfona,
where provincial limbs of the law are said
to offer to procure a dissolution of the
bonds of marriage for the consideration or
a barrel of apples-whether "apples of love'>
or "apples of Sodom" not being stated.
The old idea of marrying "for three years
"or the war" is nothing to lt.
All marriages, contrary to popular belief, ;
are not made in a better world, and they
who think they have met their long-sought ;
affinities, often discover, the first enchant-1
ment past, that they were the victims of a
hallucination, in which plumpers, palplta
tors, pearl-powder and panniers bore a con-,
spicuous part It is, therefore, a generous '
thing to declare, as the bill before ns does,
that when "both parties are insane or
"idiotic," the conjugal union ebail be void
"without nny decree of divorce or other
"legal process.'' Scoffers might suggest
that the fact of the marriage was In itself a
prima facie evidence of idiocy, and lt would
be easy enough for Darby and Joan, falling
into the sere and yellow leaf, to deem them?
selves insane, and seek a new alliance,
But thc fourth section of the bill has wider
scope, lt reads os follows :
"BKc. 4. If the .parties to a marr og ', sol- |
emnlzed when either cf them was unuer the
age of consent,.sep?rale during such mar?
riage, and do not afterwards cohabit, the tnar
i l?ge shall be void without a decree of divorce
or other regal process."
To our mind, this is legal authority for
the grossest immorality. The condition of J
the people of South Carolina is verxjpecu
liar. There are lo this State four hundred
thousand persons of color, who, until 1865,
could not contract a binding marriage.
Their sexual relations, Blnce the war, have
been notoriously loose, and it is the part of
wise and prudent legislators to protect the
marriage contract, so that it shall be neith?
er lightly made nor lightly broken. But,
under the State laws, marriage 1B a perform?
ance which may be completed with as little
ceremony as that involved in jumping over
a broomstick; and now, to make matters
worse, the Legislature, propose to Sallow any
persons who are under age to go through
the forms of marriage, and divorce them?
selves at pleasure. If gennie ?. 431a fl in and
.tie Demosthenlan Woodhull were Only a few
years younger, they would desire no greater
latitude than the new divorce law proposes
to give to the black and the white citizens
of South Carolina. No legal proceeder_
no -complicated Butt, would-be necessary.
A legal marriage, where the parlies were
minors, would become absplutely null when?
ever it suited a scolding w^fe or'licentious
husband lo so determine. Under this sec?
tion, a Juan of tender years might legally
contract, and legally dissolve, a score of mar?
riages before coming of age. No -surer
way of degrading the colored people, and
of insuring the speedy extinction of their
raca?Bh??t of legaliz? Fre> ; I^ve, cou!d
possibly be devised.
The seventh section of the bill defines the
canses for which, divorcea may bo- decreed
By the cWts? When: a person ii Ben tee ced
to imprisonment for life, or for Ave years, a
divorce may be had, and "no pardon grant?
ed to'the party so sentenced shall restore
"such party to his or her conjugal rights,"
Bot this is mild in comparison with the pro?
vision that a divorce may be bad "where
"either party shall have, by cruel or bar?
barous treatment, rendered the condition
"of the other intolerable, or life burden
"some." This may be construed to mean
everything or nothing. Another cause for
divorce is : "Gros? arrd confirmed habits or
"intoxication contracted after marriage."
Surely a man or woman who is a conUrmed
drunkard before marriage, and remains so
after marriage, -must be as unpleasant a
helpmeet as one who only begins to tipple
when the honeymoon is over.
The last and worst section of the bill pro?
vides that, when an inhabitant ol this State,
whose marriage has been consummated
therein, shall go into another State or coun?
try, "solely to obtain a divorce for any.
"cause occurring here, or for any cause
"which would not authorize a divorce by the'
"laws of this State, a divorce so obtained
"shall be of np force or effect tn this State"
Now the effect of this is obvious. A man
goes to Indiana or Illinois and obtains a
divorce from his South Carolina better-half,
and marries again in the State where the
divorce is decreed. In that State, Wife No.
2 is his legal wife, to all intents and pur?
poses; but, in Sonth Carolina, Wife No. 1 is
still bis lawful companion. We submit that
it is useless to make a dead-set at the Mo-r
mons if the laws of South Carolina enable
any Lothario to have two legal wives at the
^p> St .. ,~ tftr^
same tink, viz: One In this State, and
id?uiy other State. And, ii the laws of
rest of the country could only be Irai
upon tho same model, any person ml
have as many so-called husbands or w
as there are States In tbe Union.
We feel that this isa delicate subject u
which to write, and we have not sough
compare the proposed law with th? law
other States npon the same subject. 1
in the interest of morality and decet
and in the especial interest or the colo
people, we ask the General Assembly
make sweeping alterations in the dive
bill, or to change the title and call it-wt
in its present shape, it really la-a Bill
Encourage and License Prostitution.
Tile Brand of Cain.
The Rev. B. H. Cain, ex-Senator, and
editor and proprietor of the Missiont
Record, the colored organ, devotee the 1
issue of his paper to a discussion of the c
d it i on of the State. At the start he ;
nounces that the financial disclosures rec?
ly made fix upon the State officiais "a
"gree of guilt which is without palliatio
and he demands that the honest citizi
rise up in their might and cause the arr
of the culprits "so that justice may not
"cheated by their sudden flight from i
"State." He cogently says there is nor
son why the great criminals should not
punished "as well as the poor negro w
"steals a peck of rice to prevent his ram
"from starving." Nor will "the cry of 1
"publicanism" save tbe rascals in the tutu
for that cry "has lost its charm with I
"negroes, who ore now starving for want
'Tood, and are half naked arter years
"labor spent in following a half-vagrant li
"waiting for the fulfilment of prom ii
"made, but never Intended to he fulfilled,
"those villanous demagogues."
? In Daddy Cain's opinion, there has he
"a deep laid plan to plunder the Stan
Every financial measure was presented
being "essential to the honor and integri
"of the State," and it turned out that t
"few leading men" who persuaded the Ci
ored mernbers to pass each financial bill wc
pecuniarily interested, and made tbousan
of dollars by the operation. He holds t
Governor and Treasurer responsible as a
ceesories for "every fraudulent oct" tb
muy have been committed, and arges tl
people to hold them to a strict account
The Governor's Message, in Can
opinion, ls "the most acrimonious doc
"ment" which bas come from the Executl'
since Reconstruction, aod in it the Gove
nor "arraigns everybody but himself," mal
lng "a good bid" for popular support by tl
strong ground taken against ?he & K. I
But the people will be uta loss "to reconcii
"his contradictions, both of assertion an
"action, or the lost four years." It Is tra
that "tbe supple tools, who care nothing fe
"the good of the country, will believe all b
"say?, although they know bis words are un
"mitigated lies, and will lick and fondle a
even" but tbe honest people know that tb
Executive and bis officers "are clearly re
"eponsible for all tho ills which curse,th
"State." In conclusion, tbe reverend edito
says that ir the people bad an Executiv
"who loved justice, more than politics
"power," who did not Beek "to pander toth<
"prejudices or the ruling classes," who wai
uot ''bound np in every big job and everj
"little petty perquisite stealing," then w<
6beuld have a government strong enough tc
command tbe respect of mankind, and "tc
"strike down every villain who dared to pul
"the laws of the land at defiance."
Surely, when the leaders among the col?
ored men speak os plainly and fearlessly &t
this, the time must be coming nigh which
shall witness the union of the honest men ol
all parties, and ali classes, with the sole ob?
ject of driving rogues from positions ol
public trust, and of electing, in their stead,
citizens whom the whole State shall be wil?
ling to trust and respect.
