"Camp Aleitl?," as the bold buffalo raiders
Tiave namfd their rendezvous on the plains |
near North Platte. The gratifying Intelligence
of the success of Alexis's first hostile mani?
festation has already been announced In THE
?t?WBy and was also forwarded by cable to the
Duke's anxious relatives in Sc. Petersiurg.
More accurate details of the sanguinary con
best are now at hand. Thc Duke, Bufi'ilo Biil
and General Custer-all three-of a size and
.armed ? eap-?-pi? ior the fray-dashed off on
tneir proud and milk-white steeds. Alexis's
costume consisted of a gray Jacket and panta?
loons, trimmed with green, the buttons
Dearing the Imperial court-of arm?, an
Australian turban, a pair of monogram
alligator boots, a Russian knife and a Smith I
* Wesson revolver. Soon the herd of I
-accommodating bison was reached. The gen?
erous animals, peroeivlng the royal approach,
remained passive and calmly awaited their]
Me/ Custer and Mr. Bill soon found all they
ceuld attend to, and the Duke was Ielt alone j
with a bellowing buffalo of Brobdlgnagian j
aspect. Upon him did Alexis gracefully swoop,
with pistol balls twain, to his utter extermina-1
tionv Then the young hunter alighted, pulled
. out uta dagger, removed ihe tall of his pros-1
trate foe, and bore It to camp in triumph amid j
the enl?glnm8 of the assembled multitude.
Several others, including Count OJzonfieff,
also secured trophies, and the very successful
Initiation'of the campaign was celebrated In
the evening by a grand war dance, in which ?
those talented artists, Signor Spotted Tail and |
Herr Two Strike, took part.
-Accounts of the sale of the Empress Eu?
genie's Jewels are at hand, and very "bril?
liant" reading they make. A part of the col-1
lection was hu ely purchased by the Messrs.
Emanuel, of Bond street, London, lor ?60,000.
A foll recounts! of ali the precious gems
would be overpowering, and a brief mention
pf some of the - more remarkable specimens
will he sufficient to cause many a fair reader
to "die with envy." There are bracelets; of
ruby and sapphire and diamond, jewelled
watches, diamond brooches, sapphire and dia?
mond necklaces, an aigrette of diamonds,
emeralds and pearly diamond head orna?
ments, pearl necklaces, diamond frlDge pen?
dants, diamond anchors-and so on ad in?
finitum. One necklace of black pearls, of
large size, took years to collect, for the pearII
match each other perfectly. One of the Jewels
bas It3_especlal legend attached. After the war
between France and Austria in 1859, the Em?
press had a head ornament of diamonds worked
into the form of an olive wreath, with Mack
beads introduced in lt at regular *Jervals.
The olive branch told its own et*? of peace,
and the sombre beads within the glitter?
ing brilliants were refiew?*were meant to ex?
press Borrow fortbj^oldlers who had fall??.
Some nf these^***T8 were the presents of

This Usj/'nowever, does not by any means
cou*rwe the whole of the Empress's Jewels.

purchased the celebrated suit of rubles, and
lt is known that there are many articles of
enormous value still at Chlselhursr, which

The Financial Expedients of the Ring
From Bad to Worse.
Thc new scheme of financial "adj us t
"ment" which is said to have received the
approval of Governor Scott, and the details
of which are given in our Columbia corres?
pondence printed in another column, is a
fitting climax to the system of organized
robbery by which the Columbia Ring, with
the assistance of avenal and besotted Legls
' lature, have saddled the State with an over
! whelming debt, and made South Carolina a
by-word of mingled pity and reproach to all
mankind. The rascally clique of which
Governor Scott is the head are at last thor?
oughly frightened at the appalling pro?
portions of the obligations which tbeir
frauds and mismanagement have piled up.
They feel that their case is desperate, and
they clutch at a desperate remedy. They
know that they have dragged the State to
the verge of bankruptcy, and they are ready,
without a moment's compunction, to
dishonor her good name os they have de?
stroyed her credit. They care not a jot
who suffers, orwbat infamous means may
be employed, provided they can seem to
succeed in wiping out ten or twelve mil?
lions of the enormous public debt, the exist?
ence of which, as things stand, they are un?
willing to face and acknowledge, and yet
utterly unable to deny or explain away.
Bat the scheme on whic\i, just now, the
members of the Ring seem to rely with so
mach confidence will not avail to sa vo them.
Concocted as it is in the Interest of a gang
ot sleck-jobbera who have bought up the
uncertain millions ol the securities of the
State for a song, no wonder that its pro?
visions have been framed in the most
shameful disregard of the rights and just
expectations of the honesruondholders. It
is some comfort, however, to know, even
from the meagre outlines of the scheme
which have reached ns, that it is likely to
prove as impracticable in execution as it
was unjust and corrupt in conception.
Probes and Tests.
What good does probing do? Jim Fisk
was probed; everybody who is shot is
project, antr- \J?H. Jrv?.v?~ Au tSpETimCB u*
many years in journalism, and the reading
of many thousand newspapers and rnrny
hundred coses of gun-shot, wounds, has
not enabled us to discern the voiue of
the j)robe as an instrument of research
or relief. Occasionally some of the cloth?
ing, carried along with the ball into the
wound, is encountered by the probe and re?
moved. As a rule, however, all foreign
matters, except the ball, are driven ont by
suppuration. The ball is moro frequently
discovered under the skin by the Urger, and,
cut oat. Sometimes it is detected by the
probe, taken out by the forceps, or cut
down upon and then removed. Very often
a sac of cellular tissue is formed around
the ball, and it remains in the body, doing
no harm, except, perhaps, by pressure upon
some nerve or artery.
We by no means mean to cast discredit
upon operative surgery. We seek informa?
tion. The question ls whether probing upon
the whole does good, and, if so, in what
proportion of cases does it do good? On
the ot'ber hand, we would be glad for some
candid surgeon to tell OB how often the
patient is injured, hts fever increased by the
worry, annoyance, distress and disappoint?
ment caused by probing, which results in
nothing? Finally, it would be interesting
to know why probing in a great many cases
may not be dispensed with.
As to chemical tests and the value of
evidence by experts, it cannot be denied
that the issue of the experiments in Mrs.
Wharton's case bas gone far to produce in
the public mind an absolute want of raith
in analytical chemistry and all who dabble
in it. In future cases of poisoning, juries j
will hardly be persuaded so much as to lis?
ten to the testimony of so-called chemical
expert?/^lTT?ttoS?oiMi^ said that all
the physicians who att^nd^'CRfnwU-gf?t.
chum at the time of his death believed be
was poisoned, while all those who never saw
him witb one consent agree that he was not
poisoned. Certain it is that before the re?
butting evidence was adduced there seemed
hardly a doubt of Mrs. Wharton's guilt;
now her acquittal is a matter of course, un?
less, indeed, some testimony not yet sus?
pected may be brought forward. Chemistry
is no longer in favor. Its professors are at
a discount. But no right-thinking man will
say the science is at fault. Ita methods in
j certain cases have not been perfected, and
I ita experts are misnamed. They are bun?
glers who should be cast out of the profes?
sion. Much benefit may accrue as well to
medical jurisprudence ns to the cause of
science itself if the effect of the Wharton
trial be what it ought to be,and undoubtedly
will be, namely, utter scepticism, and a bit?
ter prejudice against chemistry, until preju?
dice and scepticism are alike overwhelmed
by the force of perfected science, which in
its essence, ls, within limits, absolute truth.
The L-gal-Tender Decision.
The New York World devotes an editorial
to a criticism of the legal-tender decision de?
livered by Judge Strong. It characterizes it
as one of the greatest affront3 and outrages
ever perpetrated against the people of the
United States, being, in fact, the declBlon of
Prudent Grant, dictated by him when he
packed the court for the purpose of overruling
a former decision or that tribunal on the same
question. The World thinks no terms can be
too severe for a denunciation of the act, un*
der mi ni nc as it does all constitutional^princi?
ples, and subverting the fundamental Ideas of
free government. It shows how the Presi?
dent, disliking ihe former decision on the
legal-tender question, determined to pack the
Supreme Couxt-wllh Judges favorable to his
views, and- thereupon appointed Justices
Strong ?fft Bradley, thereby creating the ma?
jority he des'red, and usurping the Judicial
jxfwer. Thus the President has become the
Supreme Court, and his appointees, Justices
Strong and Bradley, deliver the opinions he
wishes. The World then denounces the rea?
soning of Judge Strong, calling it a "tissue of
"chicaning sophistry," and exposing its falla?
cies. According to the decision, a mau who
owes a hundred dollars may justly discharge
his debt by making a tender of the value of
thirty dollars, and the World thinks the pay?
ment of one dollar or one cent as equitable,

ance, to eradicate and prevent dandruff, to pro?
mote the growth or the Hair and atop its falling
out. It ls entirely harmless, and perrectly free
from any poisonous sub-tame, and will therefore
take the place of all tte dirty and unpleasant
preparations now In use Numerous testimonia s
have been sent us from nany of our most promi?
nent c.tlzens, some sr which are subjoined. In
everything in which the articles DOW In use are
objectionable, CRYSTALDISCOVERY ls perfect.
It ls warranted to contain neither Sugar of Lead,
Sulphur or Nitrate of Sliver, lt does not soil tue
clothes or scalp, is agreeably perfumed, and
makes one or theo-at dressings for the Bair In
use. It restores the color of the Hair "more per?
fect and uniformly than any other preparation,"
and always doe9 so in from three to ten days,
virtually feeding the rjots of the Hair with all
the nourishing qualities necessary to its growth
and healthy condition; lt restores the decayed
and induces a new growth or the Hair more posi?
tively than anything else. The application of
this won iertul discovery also produces a pleasant
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 way
gratuitously to those wishing to try ir. You win
notice that in pursuing this course our aim ls to
convince by the actual merits of the article.
