-As the snow blockade across the conti?
nent ls being continually alluded to, it maybe
Interesting to give a brief sketch of the trou?
ble th is winter. The Brut blockade occurred
October 12th, near Raw Un., since that time
with brief intervals there has oeen a succes?
sion of snow and wind storms of great vio?
lence. The greatest depth of fal Ung snow on
the. line of the road across the mountain ls Bl
?,ty:fonr Inches. But the detention ot the traine
has been caused by di laing and not by falling
xno3t._ In November, the second serious
blockade oceurreq? the' len ces having been
found instiiiclent. to arrest ttiecriulng snow.
An effort was then made to open the roi
keep lt open bj the use of snow plouf
which the company bad thirteen tba
proved to be efficient during the pas'
wintere, with three heavy wagons
pied behind each pbugh, and as tl
suit of this attempt twenty locomotives
disabled within one week by being throwi
the track and materially injured. ?
snow trains were flited out, with accomi
tlon8 on each for sleeping and feeding se?
il ve laborers, and with two weeks' suppl
provisions, this force was set at work, In
Hon to the ordinary number ot emplc
and in this way trains have been sent ov<
road. The road ls now open lrom Oma
Laramie, distance five hundred and sev
two miles, and from Wasbaki to Ogden
tance two hundred and twenty-eight-1
The obstructions are between Laramie
Wasbaki, embracing the divide of the (
nent, being only one. hundred and sev
nine miles. There are now seven west-b
passenger trains detained near Separa
which ls twenty-nine miles distant fron
western boundary of the blockade, and t
are two east-bound passenger trains at G
River, walting until the west-bound ti
shall pass the blockade. At various p<
along the road there are about eight hun
?west-bound cars of freight, and about
hundred cars of freight east-bound.
Mr. W. J. Magrath.
At the meeting of the newly-elected Bi
of Directors of the South Carolina Rail
Company, held on Thursday last, Mr. V
Magrath was unanimously re-elected P
dent of the Company. This unanimout
election, coupled with the fact that he
ceived the largest number of votes cast
any director at tbe annual meeting of st<
holders, is a pleasing recognition of
high esteem in which Mr. Magrath is hele
the stockholders and by his board.
The Lancaster Elections.
The Radical members of the State Sec
may congratulate themselves upon ha\
committed an act of usurpation which ex>
in turpitude any piece of financial rasca
of which their comrades in the House b
been guilty. We give the facts, which
tagen exclusively from the report of
Senate Committee on Privileges and E.
tiona, submitted to the Senate last week.
: At the election of a senator for Laucas
County in October, 1870, there were t
candidates, viz: Phineas B. Tompkins,
Democrat, and F. A. Clinton, a Radie
According to the certificate of the' Com rc
Bioners of Election, Clinton received IC
votes, and Tompkins received 852 vol
when Clinton was declared elected, and vt
admitted to a seat upon the floor or the Sc
ata Mr. Tompkins filed a protest agait
the election, and, undera resolution adopt
by tbe Senate, was authorized to take tes
moby to establish the facts alleged int
groands of protest Notice ol the time ai
place of taking testimony was served upi
Clinton, who was present by his attorne
The taking of testimony was closed on Fe
mary 27,1871, the result being that ni:
hundred and eighty-eight voters of Lanca
ter County were produced, at the varioi
times and placeo, nud made sill la vit th
they voted fer Tompkins. Testimony wi
also taken to prove that some of the balli
boxes had no lock or any means of fastet
ing^ and that they were left in this conditio
with tbe managers and forwarded to tt
County Commissioners of Elep.tinn. M
Clinton, the silting senator, look no test
mony in reply, and personally informed tb
Senate Committee that he did not desire t
do so. The committee having examined tb
poll lists found that the perdons who swor
that they voted for Tompkins did vote at th
elections,-and report that the case is redacei
to this point: "By the testimony of the vo
"tere, 988 votes (42 more than a majority o
"the votes cast in tbe county for State Sena
"tor) were given to Phineas B. Tompkins
"On the other hand, the return of the oin
"eera-Managers and Commissioners o
"Election-shows that he received but 851
"votes; less than a majority of the votei
"cast for senator in that county." A thor
ough examination of the law and precedent)
satisfied the committee that it was competeui
for the Senate (o go behind the certificate o:
election, ascertain the facts fully, and decide
upon the whole question. Mr. Clinton made
no attempt to impeach the character of o
single witness called on behalf of the con?
testant, and the committee, therefore, con?
clude that "the testimony or the witnesses
"produced by the contestant is to be received
"and treated, in all respects, as true, Tor the
"purposes or this case." The committee are
driven to anotuer inevitable conclusion, viz:
"that either the Managers of Election at the
"various precincts in Lancaster County, or
"the commissioners to whom the managers
"made returns, some one or more of them,
"have perpetrated a gross fraud; and that
"they have done so to an extent sufficient to
"cltange Ute wkole result of the election for
"senator in tfiat county."
The majority of the Committee on Privi?
leges and Elections are Radicals, the chair?
man being United States District Attorney
D. T. Corbin. They reported, as we have
shown, that it was proved by affidavit that a
majority of the voters cast their votes for
Mr. Tompkins, and they announced that
gross frauds had been committed, sufficient
to change the whole result or the election.
They declare it to be certain that "the pres
"ent incumbent (Clinton) ls not entitled to
"his seat," and, in the face or these fads,
the committee recommend that tbe election
be declared void, and the seat or the senator
from Lancaster County be declared vacant
Tbey officially announce that Clinton was
not elected and that Tompkins was elected;
and thea place the usurping member and
the rightful claimant upon ti ? same rooting.
They officially decide that Mr. Tompkins re?
ceived a majority oi the votes cast, and then
advise that the matter be referred again to
the people of Lancaster County "to say who
"is their choice for senator!" The people
have said; they have decided. What war?
rant is there for depriving them of their
rights, and for refusing his seat to the candi?
date whom they have deliberately chosen?
But even the report or the committee,
shamefully unjust as it was, did not suit the
Radical politicians in the Senate. Tile re?
port of the committee was called up ou Fri?
day, in the absence of Senator Corbin, and
was, on motion of Senator Hoyne, laid on
the ?able. A motion to reconsider was made,
which motion, also, was laid on the table,
which manoeuvre prevents any consideration
of the nport dur.ng ihe present session.
Senator Corbin Hied a protest against the
I action of his colle igue3. In that protest he
declares that both parties bad the fallest op-1
! portaalty to produce testimony, that toe re
I port of the committee was full and elaborate;
? yet the ' Senate, without reading the report,
' irrevocably disposed of the whole question,
j contrary to the report, in favor of the sitting |
member. In conclusion, Senator Corbin
I protest against such action because it J
demonstrates to the world that this Senate,
having a large Republican majority, will not
even hear before it deeldes upon the rights of
the parties to ibis contest, and the rights of |
?he people of Lancaster County lb representa?
tion upon this floor. -
: I protest against this action as unconstitu?
tional, unjust, and an outrage, and as fasten?
ing upon the Republican majority of this Sen?
ate a stain not to be effaced by time.
Senators Corbin and Wilson (Con.) then
resigned their positions as members of the
Committee on Privileges and Elections.
-There is no reason for saying, in thia
case, that the Radical Senators are the vic-1
tims of Democratic . misrepresentations.
They are condemned by their own commit?
tee, and bitterly blamed by the ablest mem?
ber of their body. Without condescending j
to offer an excuse for their shameless con?
duct, they have violated their official oaths,
made themselves the accomplices in guilt of j
the ballot-stuffing officers of election, and
deprived a whole county of the suffrage.
What can be thought of men who preach the j
doctrine of Equal Rights, and who give to
their political opponents only insult and [
wrong? What can be thought of a party
which bas no mercy on the misguided mask?
ers who prevented negroes from voting, and
which accepts and trusts, as it chosen repre?
sentatives, a body of men who, at one ?
swoop, nullify the votes of nearly one thou?
sand citizens of the State ?
Augusta and Charleston.
The Augusta Constitutionalist thinks that
the demonstration against the South Caro?
lina Railroad is only a feint, and that the
real object of the Central Railroad is to ob?
tain possession of the Georgia Railroad, con?
necting Augusta and Atlanta. It is led to
this conclusion by the opinion that the pos?
session of the South Carolina Railroad by the j
Central Railroad won ld not cut off Charles-1
ton unless the Central Railroad obtained
control of the Port Royal line, which will
soon be completed; when a through line
could be easily arranged over the Port Royal
and Savannah and Charleston roads to
Cbarleston. But a lease of tbe Georgia
Railroad would enable the Central Railroad
to cut off all its rivals.
We think it very likely that the Central j
Railroad has not abandoned the project of j
buying or leasing the Georgia Road. This
is a scheme all the dangers of which both
Augusta and Atlanta understand. Our con?
temporary does not, however, appear to have
considered the injury which Augusta imay
sustain, if it be deprived of the vast facili?
ties and active competition which are secur?
ed to it by the independence of the South
Carolina road; facilities and a competition
which could not be retained when the main
avenues to the sea were controlled by a single
corporation. Counting the two companies
which use the track from Augusta to Colum?
bia, the former city bas now five outlets;
viz: the Augusta and Wilmington Road, the
Augusta and Charlotte Road, the Sooth Car?
olina Road, the Savannah Road and the Sa?
vannah River. The trade of Augusta, is not
sufficient to sustain any one of the four lines
of railroad; and it is evidently to her inter?
est to give every encouragement to an ex?
tension of Western connections, and to keep
open her unrivalled connections with the j
coast. This is necessary for her local busi?
ness, as well as for holding and Improving
her posit io ri ns a distributing railroad centre.
To place the South Carolina Road under tho j
control of the Georgia Road is to take away
from Augusta her most valuable feeder. The
Port Royal Railroad may soon be added to
the list of the competitors for Augusta
freights; but has our contemporary any cer?
tain knowledge that the Fort Boyal Boad
will not, as well as the South Carolina Road,
be controlled by the Central Ring? The
Bhrewd railroad men who are striving to
lease the Sooth Carcuma Road know that its
value is diminished, for their purposes, by
allowing the Port Royal Road to rest un?
trammelled. Is it likely that they have over?
looked-that road ? - Is it not probable that
they are well assnred that the Port Royal
line can be controlled, or that it will not be
a dangerous rival ?
Assuming, for the sake of argument, that
the Port Royal Road will soon be finished,
and that it will be independent of the Cen?
tral Road, we beg to remind our contempo?
rary that it is far cheaper for its citizens to
spend a hundred or two hundred thousand
dollars, if necessary, to retain the South
Carolina Road under its present manage?
ment than to be forced to encounter an ex?
penditure of millions for the purpose of put?
ting the Port Royal line in condition to cope
with the Ceatral and South Carolina roads '.
The railroad connections of Augusta, by the
South Carolina Road, are everything that can
be desired, and the same company gives Au?
gusta, without a farthing of cost, the unsur?
passed liues of water communication which,
make Charleston *tb.e first of the South At?
lantic ports. As soon as the South Carolina
Road fell into'the bands of the Central.
Railroad, Charleston would be stripped of]
the lines of steamships which the business]
or the South Carolina Road maintains. And ;
the consequent delay in transporting and;
delivering freight would be commensurate.]
with the increase of rates. AugHsta would
be forced to reopen an ample channel to tho j
sea, and millions, spent upon the Port Royal j
Road, would not give her the advantages i
which she receives from the South Carolina
Road, and which it would be the part of
prudence to strive hard to retain.
We have made these suggestions only to j
show that the lease of the South Carolina j
Roud would not be injurious to Cbarleston
alone. Augusta has, also, a heavy stake in
FODLKS, who was found guilty of man.
ttiiigbter In the case of the colored convict
who was tortured to death In the Penitentiary
shower-bath, was pardoned by Governor Scoit j
before his conviction. It was ouly a colored |
man, and Governor Scott knows more of the
law and the tacts than either Judge or Jury.
WE have received ihe first number of the
Orangeburg Times, edited by Messrs. J. 8.
Hey ward aud F. P. Beard. It ls Democratic
in politics, and claims the support of tbe pub?
lic upon ihe ground that the good people ol
Orangeburg Quants have beca entirely with?
out a paper which represented their views
upon the social and political questions of the

.^SB-FOUR MILLIONS OF INVALIDS.
AU ne lowe-* computation there are never lesa
than fonr millions of Invalids In tue United
States. Of this number probably more than
three-fifths have neglected the ordinary precau?
tions necessary for the preservation of health,
and are anne ring the punishment due to their
carelessness. If the multitudes '.vho are now
afflicted with billonsneas, Indigestion, rheuma?
tism, Intermittent fever, Irr?gularit?s of the

With HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS, two
thirds of them would at this moment be perform?
ing the active duties of life, unannoyed by any
ailment or the body or the mind.
This assertion ls made advisedly. It la founded
on experience, and ls borne out by the testimony
of a countless host of wltnessess, whose attesta?
tions cover almost every variety of disease, and
extend over a period of about twenty years. Of
every thousand persons who take tbe Bitters, as
a preventive of the complaints above enumera?
ted, se ven-eight hs escaped them entirely; and
of every thousand who are actually attacked, and
use the great Vegetable Tonic as a remedy, three
fsurths are radically cured. These are not hap?
hazard assertions, bot statistical facts. They
are based upon the results ef inquiries made by
moro than fifty thonsacd persons in various
parts of the country, and upon the letters of
prominent citizens of every state, lt might al?
most be said, or every county, in the Union.
