Tte Cloe Ridge Bill on Its Merits
Squirming Among Its Supporters-A
Square Vote and tb? Job Indefinitely
Postponed!-The Hew Apportionment |
of Members of the Legislature.
[FUOM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
COLUMBIA, S. C., January 30.
The members of the Senate to-day pat an
?ffectuapffutetus upon the Blue Ridge Bail
road swindle, and at the same time, and by
the? same action, Indicated very clearly their
disapprobation of the credit system In legisla
tlon. Mr. Leslie intimated, on Friday last,
that the Senate was not disposed to tolerate
the C. O. D. principle, and that, as the New
York advertisements say, "the money mast
accompany each order to secure the ship?
ment of the goods;'* and the friends of the
Blue Ridge scheme have doubtless found by
this time, to their entire satisfaction, that
promises te pay, contingent upon the passage
of a bill, hardly furnish sufficient motive
power to turn the senatorial grindstone for
an axe of such proportions.
The measure came up to-day, Immediately
after the morning busioess, as the special order j
of the day, and a motion was made by S walls
to again postpone the consideration of the bid
till Thursday next. Nash hoped not, and
could not see any reason why a vote could not
be taken then as weU as any other time.
Whlttemore accused the senators of acting In
bad faith toward him. He had been called
ont of town for a day or two, and they had
agreed not to take up this blil of abominations
until his return; but be noticed by the Journal
that they had made a determined effort to take
ap the bill on Friday. Now that it had eome
up he was preoared to say something about lt,
and hoped the' motion to postpone would not
prevail. Hay ne called for the ayes an j noes
on the motion to postpone, and afterward
withdrew the call, which was renewed, how?
ever, by S wai ie. Leslie thought he would like
to have S wails get np and tell, in a dear,
distinct voice, so that the Senate could
hear him, why he was so anxious all
of a sadden to have the thing postponed,
when he had been all along trying to
barry lt ap. Swells replied that it had
been talked about so much that he be.
gan to think there waa something In ll him?
self, and he wanted time lo study on it Leslie
thought that the bill as drawn was a dellbe
ale insult to the Senate. It was as bad as
though lt asked them to set fire to the State?
house, and then sit there amil the building j
was consumed; and he submitted that the men !
who drew the bill were either downright luna?
tics or else they thought the senators were
idiots. Tbe bill proposed to pay the debts of
several railroad companies while the Slate was
unable to pay Its own debts, and lt proposed
to do a great many other th 1 gs J ust as absurd.
He did not propose to vote for any posipone
ment. He wanted the bill Killed there and
then, and afterward the friends of the meas?
ure might bring in a new bill having the same
general object in view, but being decent In tts
provisions. The vote on postponement waa
then taken and lost by eleven to fourteen.
Smalls ihen moved to sinke out the enact?
ing clause of the bil), but being reminded that
thu couldnot*be done while'the bill was
under discussion, be moved to amend by
striking out all after the enacting clause.
Whlttemore said this was cutting off the body
from the head, and he did not know as lt
made much difference whether they did that
or cut the head off from the body. He didn't
want to do either. He wanted to meet the
bill at once, and If the Senate liked the bill let
them pass ir, it ihey didn't like it let them kill
1 a straight vote, without any dissection,
pitatlon or vivisection about it. Smalls
> (bat his motion was the bf st one. He
erstood that the bill bad a good heading,
and lt lt had a good bead and a corrupt body
it would be a*good idea to cut off the body and
throw lt away.
S wai ls moved to recommit the bill, and, this
motion taking precedence ot i he other, lt had
some show of pa ...jig, uni il Hayne rose with a
motion to indefinitely postpone the whole mat?
ter. This started another lot of fillousterlng
motions, and provoked a speech from Smalls,
who said they were all'protesting that they
wished to. K'll the bill, but lt they did, why
didn't they vo*-* for bis motion instead of beat?
ing around tue bush ? He thought lt was all
very thin, and that lt looked as though, after
all, they were In favor of passing the bill, and
were only trying to compound with their con?
sciences or to gammon their constituents by a
show of opposition. After a little further de?
bate, a vote was reached on the motion to
Indefinitely posptone, and lt was carried by a
vote of seven to eight een. This action effectu?
ally disposes of the bill of abominations, as
the rules of the Senate provide that no mutter
which has been indefinitely postponed oan be
again brought up, nor can a similar bill be
Introduced again during the present eesslon.
?revious to this good day's work the fol
g bills and notices were introduced:

A PROBABLE MURDER.
The Body of Mr. Bigelow ls Found.
[From the Marlon Orescent.]
We learn that the body of Mr. D. Bigelow,
(of whose mysterious disappearance we gave
an account some weeks since,) has been
found. The bones of the poor old man, (for
little else was discovered,) were identified by
the clothing, and were lound In Cypress Creek
Bay, half covered by leaves and mud. Our
informant states that not even a knife was
found lu the pockets o? the dead man's gar?
ments. Tills is one step, and we hope that lt
may not be long before we will be able to give
our readers tbe end of this dreadful matter.
Mr. Bigelow may or may not have been kill?

be reached. The body was found last week.
EUGENIE DEFENDS THE EMPEROR.
Fear nor Ambition Ever Entered His
The Empress Eugenie has Just addressed a
letter to a friend In Switzerland, from which
these extracts are taken:
I have challenged public attention so often
of late by the leti-.rs tro m me which have been
published, it seems to rae the public must be
tired of seeing them.' Moreover, I confess to
?ou there are accusations against which I
ave extreme repugnance to raise my voice,
and the light which will one dav be thrown
on the subject will exhibit the sole sentlmert
which couid have connected me with tho
4th of September. Defection had made lt
impossible lor me to defend myselt, and
being unable to conquer I refused to
divide when the enemy might at any mo
ment enter through the breach our InteMlne
dissensions opened to it. I obeyed a feel I ag of |
personal unselfishness by leaving to oin -rs the
honors of the defence the instant 'twa? proved
to me that I was alone and unable to uegotlate
peace. This must be knowD, and If lt ls nol
I neither can nor wish to tell lt. Ot all my
sufferings none bas been more painful than to
see that after such a career as th? Emperor's,
public opinion has been so widely led astray
as lo require-not a political or strategic ex?
planation, which I could have uuaeretoori,
from Sedan, but-a detailed narrative of tue
Emperor's personal conduct! What can be
credited after such wildness. I have an abso?
lute confidence lu the power of truth. The
sole motive of ibe Emperor and of me lias
been the grandeur and prosperity of France.
We may have made mistakes, but neither fear
nor ambition ever entered our hearts one sin?
gle Instant. I cannot now say disgust hus
never entered lhere; therefor**, I will not de?
fend myself, and caunnt bring raj s -lt to pass
through this additional calumny. EUGENIE.
CONCERNING PEA.NDTS.-The New York
Standard dwells learnedly upon peanuts.
First, as to varieties : "There is the Atrican
peanut, the Georgia peauut, the North Caroli?
na peanut, the Tenn- ssee De amit and the Vir?
ginia peauut. Their qualities improve in
the order In which they are here set down,
the first being ihe poorest and the last
tue best. Ii you want peanuts see that you
gel the sort coming from the Old Dominion."
Then, as to the quantity consumed, the editor
tells us : "There are annually consumed in
this country 800,000 bushels, vuliied in the
wholesale market UL about one and a half mil-1
lion dollars, so that ihe sum paid yearly by
the consumers cannot, be much less thaa three
millions of dollars. Virgiula produces nearly
one-hair of this quantity, and Tennessee over
one-quarter, whl<e about one-eighth ls raised
by Georgia and North Carolina, Africa furnish?
ing us the other eighth."
THE NEW BABYLON.
THE CANKER AT THE ROOT OF SOCIAL
LIFE HY PARIS.
A Striking Picture of Dissipation In the
I Gay Capital-How the People Profit
hy the Lessons of Ad vers! t j .
[From the Saturday Review.]
This time last year Paris and Franco were
passing through the furnace of affliction.
The teachings ot adversity had been bitter,
but at least we were assured that the lesions
had not been lost. A great price had been
paid for the wisdom that comes of experience,
but at any rate the experience and Us fruits
were gained once for all. Confessing her
faulis, she denounced her seducer. Borrow?
ing a congenial precedent from the imposing
Hebrew ceremonial, she charged all her sins
on the dynasty of her choice, and cast it out
into the wilderness. Thenceforward she had
broken with her past, and made a fresh pact
with ihe future. Like a lorette (urned devo?
tee, and alive to the excitement of contrast,
she rather gloried In the mad dissipation she
had repented of. There was doubtless much
ephemeral sincerity In the earnestness
with which she threw herself into her
part. Paris ls too emotional not to
be genuinely impressionable, and sincerity
always has Its influence, even If it be boru of
self-delusion. When Paris recanted and con?
fessed, although she vowed and promlsod so
much, we were almost half inclined to believe
her. Yet we mlgut have remembered that
when nations have passed Iheir early youth
they seldom profit by the schooling of adversi?
ty. A tone of thought has established Ttseir in
the ascendant, inveterate habits have become
engrained; exceptional men may rouse them?
selves to extraordinary effort, but the nation
gravitates back into the deep-worn grooves.
.We say nothing now of French International?
ists who renounce patriotism as l reason to
humanity, or of the Communists who denounce
properly as theft, and identity superstition
with religion. We speak of all that ls most
respecinbie ia a political point of view, what?
ever it may oe as regards private morality;
and we ask how have the "respectable" Pari?
sians performed the vows that were forced
from them by the pressure of the beleaguering
Germans ? What have been the fruits of the
panic generated of murder and flre-rAising
during the misrule of Communist anarchy ?
As lt happens, we have the means of satisfying
ourselves, and conservative Paris ls put to
a crucial test at the opening of ihi New Year.
It has to return a member to the Chamber,
and the eyes bf France and Europe are upon
lt. In the opinion of many thoughtful French?
men, Parl?is asked to decideupou Its own fate,
and yet conservative Paris seems to give no
thought to the matter. Never had French
conservatism, taking the word in its broadest
sense, its path of duty made plainer or easier.
Yet the timid bourgeoisie ls Inclined to leave
the course clear to the nominee ol' the party
who but yesterday set Paris ia flames, to the
poet who has prostituted bis genius to apolo?
gize for the worst excesses of the Commune.
While Rome burned its emperor fiddled.
Paris has a plain duty to perform in the
supreme interests of Its own honor and
safety, and the Parisians s'amusent. We
would not be hard on a people for
acting alter their nature. We never believed
that a grand national regeneration was to be
operated by a miracle. We know that with a vo?
latile nat lou there must a light hearted reaction
from the depths of depression, and that the
journey bacK to better things must be a'l up?
hill, and very painful at the best. But, making
the most generous allowances, lt is Impossi?
ble not to feel grievously disappointed. The
Reds are raising their heads again. The Ger?
mans still occupy tne provinces of France, and
the German chancellor has Just stung the na?
tional pride to the quick. The country has to
brace itself to bear a burden of taxation which
only Industry und frugality can render tolera?
ble, and nothing whatever is settled as to the
government of the luture. Yet long before
France bas left the school ol adversity, she
has cast all its lessons behind her, and her lat?
ter state ls worse than the lormer by wasted
opportunities and hundreds of millions ol
Pails is atlll the Paris of the Empire. Im?
poverished as she is, she still Ands the means
tor dissipation and tiivoUty. She has dis?
carded decency, and seems bent on proving
to Europe that the refinement and good taste
on which she prided herself were only tinsel
on the surface. She ls holding her orgies in
what should ba the house of mourning. She
has pitched the booths of ber Vanity Fair on
pavements scarcely cleansed from the blood
of her citizens. The stalls are set as thickly
along the Boulevards as evey they were, and
the trade In ?trennes goes forward more brisk?
ly than before1. It appears as If the chosen
seat of genteel comedy had lost all sense of
tho ludicrous. Does Paris believe Ute to be a
vaudeville, and crushing national calamities
things to oe trifled with or jested over ? It ls
hard to see where even the most ingenious
and light-hearted and valn-glorlous of peoples
can find matter of mutual congratulation In
the events ot the past year, or the prospects
of the coming one. Fancy an English or Ger?
man family munching bonbons aud exchang?
ing jests on the day after a funeral, and while
there is an execution In the house. A moral?
ist might find something suggestive of tbe
hollowness of things in France In those
gaudy and costly cases which contain a franc's
worth of unwholesome sweets. Still we can
conceive that something might be said by a
Parisian tor keeping up the lrlendly fashion of
?trennes. Abused as lt has been, lt .ls the
French counterpart of the German Christmas
tree, and originated doubtless, lu kindly family
feeling. There might be a fa'se air ot chival?
rous spirit in struggling to be cheerful In
memory of past happiness lo pinching upon
straitened means in order to be generous. No
such defence can be Bet up for the public
amusements of the season. The masked balls
at the opera-house are lu full swing. Most
people know what these are by hearsay If not
by personal observation. The masked ball
means the looBe-tot loose Paris celebiating
Its saturnalia, lu a disguise that Invites decen?
cy to Join while giving Indecency lt- wildest
license-iudecency of thought, speech, and all
but act, we should say; for experleuco has
taught the necessity of detailing a powerful
three of police to quell any demonstrative ob
Bcenity. It means dancing, beginning at mid?
night alter long dinners; suppers In ihe cabi?
nets of the Malton Dor?e, and the Ca:? Anglais;
women In "costume," with aa little character
as clo.hes, shading off through the neutral
classes ot'shopgirls, actresses, danseuses and
dames de comptoir, to ladles of society ensconc?
ed snugly in their masks and dominoes. These
masks and dominoed give absolute immunity
from the whispers of the world, even were the
world more inclined to censure than it. is.
The fair wearers may rub their draped shoul?
ders with the naked ones of thc most brazen
tongued of the lost sisterhood, and listen free
ly to shameless talk. Ir, ls easy to conceive
the facility which these balls give for assigna?
tions In a city where married women are fre?
quently as much their own mistresses as fasci?
nating young girls la business. One might
fancy that trie censorship which busies Itself
with the politics ot the. drama might, profitably
turu Us attention to the morals of these forc?
ing-houses tor female innocence. The masked
ball exhibits the dignity ol Frenchmen In
quit? as striking a light as the dcilcscy of
Frenchwomen. The grand nailon t hat blazon?
ed the walls of Versailles with Us vic;oi les,
reared the Arch of Triumph, an 1 cast, the
column of the Place Vend?me, has Just been
capitulating by hundreds ot thousand-), their
arms tn their hunns. Here they ure. fresh
from the Caudine Forks, capering, shrieking
and grimacing as clowns, Pierrots and mon?
keys. Not that i hey hav?-forgotten the war. Oo
the contrary, with their felicitous sense of the
flin?38 0f Milngs, they have made the taking
of each other pr.soner and the spoils of tue
victor the standing; jokes ol the season. Nor
are the ladies altogether oblivious of the dead;
if i hey wear but the lowest, of corsets and the
briefest of skirts, ihey have iheir minimum ol'
raiment suitably trimmed willi black and sil?
ver gray. We caunoi say that we. admire, the
taste nf dancing the can-can on a coffln-lid.
mirare we Hine thai we do not prefer Hie
p?troleuses of the Commune to tue Bacchanals
of the Carnival. But llien we ure not French,
and we suppose, we must take French patriot?

voiiue which their admirable ad lug, their
S ate subventions, and the masterpieces ot

Still one might have believed that their turn
m na* have come In the grave circumstances
of the hour, and that Moll?re's comedies
might have been light enough for the
taste ot the desolated city. On the
contrary, all the different managements are
constantly ransacking their repertoires fur
; frivolities and Indelicacies to rival the Palais
Royal and the Bouffes. We are the less sur?
prised when we remember the delighted
crowds that filled the latter house on the mor?
row ot the evacuation of Paris by the Germans.
Tet let us be just. One change the war bas
wronght In the Parisians, and we bave referred
to it already. The most sensitive ot people
has suddenly become the most thick-skinned.
We should have Imagined that for many a year
to come prisons and prisoners would be sore
subjects with French soldiers; that the sight of
a Prussian helmet would act like a red rag on
a bull. We are Informed that the most popular
caricature In Paris is a group o? German sold?

Tuileries gardens, while a single Frenchman

'..Something that Charleston Should
[From the Marion Orescent,]
We once before took it upon ourselves to
advise the merobants of Charleston, and, de?
spite the fact that little good came of lr, we
will say a word or two more in the same spir?
it. We then urged Charleston merchant* to
adopt Immediate and proper step3 to influ?
ence our cotton crop of 1871 lo them; now,
we would urge upon them the wisdom of
beginning at ihe commencement of the year,
and, by their united action, have the rail?
road facilities to iheir city placed on the
same footing, or as near as may be, to those
enjoyed by Wilmington; and, further, by Judi?
cious business arrangements with the planters,
to place themselves in a position to compete
for the handling of the crop which ls to be
made this year.
As planters generally need advancements In
order io cultivate their lands properly, the
merchants of Charleston should first establish
safe and reliable agencies through which they
can make these advancements. This Is about
the only way th ?y can calculate upon making
advancements tialely, but with a good agent,
acquainted with the people. located here,
they could safely enter upon the advancement
The railroad matter Is more difficult, and to
show how discriminations are made In favor
of Wilmington, we mention the fact, of which
we have been intormed by a gentleman of
undoubted veracity, that a freight conductor
on the Wilmington, Columbia and Augusta
Railroad Company grumbled for a long lime
at having to take cotton to Florence, and said
that he had a good mind not to carry lt any?
how. As long as conductors are unwilling to
carry produce, and Ireights are so arranged
that lt can be set down In Wilmington cheaper
than In Charleston, of course trade must yield;
but If Charleston is alive lo Its Interests and ls
willing to make ihe proper efforts to Increase
its trade, the whole matter can bs effected.

THE COOLIE SYSTEM OF CUBA.
WASHINGTON, January 31.
Official statements show that since June 1st,
1847, when the first consignment of Asiatics
arrived at Havana, t here have been Introduc?
ed Into Cuba 109,000 Asiatic colonists, at aa
average cost to the purchaser of $350 each, re?
presenting a dlshurnement of upwardi'of $37.
000,000, or $1.500,000 annually. Our consul
"eneral suggests that lt would bo Interesting
to know how tnanv of these Asiatics have re?
turned to their country, how many are now
llvm", and how many hive been subjected to
capital punishment In Cuba, how many have
died In prison ami chain gangs, and how many
in their despair have commit ted suicide. The
great want of thc Island Is an abundance of
hands, of cheap and easy support, and no
other country except the Celestial Empire can
furnish them. In connection with ihis sub?
ject the repor;s from official sources In China
are to the eflVct that the atrocities ol'the coolie
slave trade, which hare recently been brought
io public cognizance, will arrest the attention
and excite horror wherever the English lau
?iiu"e In spoken. The hopi* I? expressed that
the concurrent opinion and action of all Chris?
tendom will establish such a police on tho sea
as to render all coerced emigration, inevitably
tending to the slave trade. Impossible.
Our diplomatic and consular representatives
in China being unsuccessful In their efforts lo
nreveut tho trade, have laid the matter before i
our .-overnment. Consul Bulley, at Hong
Kong* says the coolie ol China ls bought by
tue Heh trader to serve hts purchaser at low
wages for a series of years in a foreign coun?
try, under contract, for the faithful perform?
ance of which, In runny lusiances. he gives a
mortgage on his wife aud children, with a
stipulation that at the end of hla term of ser?
vice he ls to bc brought back to China by his
purchaser. This contract ls sold by the dealer,
through his agents In Cuba and elsewhere, at
a large advance, and ts a source of great profit
to crtuliaibis who have the means to buy and
sell large numbers of m*n.
THE POLYGAMISTS AROUSED.
I The Governor of Utah Vetoes the Con
stltatlonal Convention Act-Excite?
ment In the Legislative Assembly.
SALT LAKE CITY, January 27.
Governor Woods to-day retnrned to the
Legislative Assembly the act for holding
convention to prepare a constitution for the
admission ot Ulah, without bis approval. He
suggests tbat the organic act of Utah contem?
plates only suoh malters as relate to the do?
raesllc concerns ol the Territory, and no
power ls therein given to abolish one form
of government and adopt another. The power
that created alone can destroy. Without spe?
cial authority from Congress the Territorial
Legislature has DO right to act upon the sub- J
ject o? admission; and, further, Utah having
less than the required population under the
present apportloument for one representative
to Congress, he thinks lt would be well to
await tue pleasure of the general govern?
All violations of the laws ol Congress should
cease. Polygamy should be abandoned, and
laws should be enacted by yon in accord with
the laws of Congross upon that subject. Until
that ls done the people of Ulah cannot ex?
pect, nor should they ask, admission as a State.
Religious toleration in the United States Is as
broad as the wants ot humanity, but the gov?
ernment cannot tolerate church dogmas which
set at naught its statutes. .
The Governor's veto message in the House
created mach excitement, and the members
expressed themselves with bitter Invectives.
Mr. Taylor, one of the Apostles, exclaimed,
"Are we nonentities; are we serfs; have we
rendered ourselves criminals bv putting the
power into the hands of tbe people to ask for
admission into the Union? Tho polygamy
clause of this message," said he, "I consider
an open Insult to us. Ii is worn threadbare,
and has become a stench In the nostrils of all
respectable peoplP. What laws have we vio?
lated ? And If we hare violated any, why are
wejxot punished for it ? Even murderers are
brought to testify against us, and every means
need to prove us guilty of polygamy. If con?
trary to the constitution or laws of the United
States, why don't the Federal Judges prose?
cute us under United States laws? Is ibis
House to be insulted by such charges as con?
tained In the document from the Governor ?
I saj nay 1 I throw it back in his face, and
tell him lt ls a falsehood. [Voices-Sear,
hear.] We are American citizens, and de?
mand the rights of such." ^
Mr. James w. Young did not care ? snap for
the acts, and asked no odds of the Governor
or any other man.
Mr. Rockwood said that thev had been
abased long enough, and that be would gladly
die a martyr to the Morman cause. It there
was anv of the blood of otu* forefathers ot '76
In the Assembly they would at once resent the
On a motion from Mr. Young, a committee
of three, to act with a similar committee from
the council, were appointed to draft Joint res?
olutions for the purpose named In the vetoed
act. The same committee were Instructed to
draft resolutions expressive of the sense of
the House lu regard to the offensive charges
in the Governors veto message.

THE NEW S KS AT O Ii FROM NORTH \
A Biographical Sketch of General
On Tuesday the Legislature ot North Caro?
lina elected General Matt. w. Ransom United
States senator In place of ex-Governor Z. B.
General Ransom was born In Wsrren County
In 1826, and ia now forty-six years ot age. He
graduated with the first honors at the Univer?

J. Johnston Pettigrew. In 1852 General Ran?
som was elected attorney-general by a Legis?
lature of opposite politics. In 1858 he was

ex-Governor Swain and Colonel John L.
Brldgers, General Ransom went lo Mont?

visional government, as a commissioner
from North Carolina to thal government,

very soon transferred tts) the Confederate
service. He remained in - ihe Southern army
during four years, was twice wounded severe?
ly, was promoted to colonel and subsequently
to Ihe rank of brigadier-general for gallant
conduct. Whilst he always maintained dis?
cipline in bis command, his uniform kindness
lo his men insured their love, while his cool?
ness and Intrepidity in action and soldierly
bearing in camp and field gained their highest
