-Oar latest foreign flies, down to the 1st In?

that the nation Is "willing to dolts duty, bat

age, l,lt will be dlfCcu't to excuse the manner
In which the treaty was drawn up." It does
not blame the United States for construing
the treaty as lt does. The Pall Mall Gazette
takes nearly the same view. It belabors the
much-enduring government and high commis*
doners with much unction, and then allows
that If .the indirect claims come within the!
terms of the. agreement, "we must accept the
responsibility forced on us by the negligence
and Incompetency of our government, and pay
the bill." But If not, not. The vigorous Mr.
Otway, M. P., does not m|nce malters at all as
the newspapers do. In a speech at Chatham,
he declared vehemently on the subject of the
American "case," and declared that be would
fight rather than pay. Which bellicose vati?

-.?irom Hucheo" has written a letti-r to the
Kew York Tribune, couched In lila customary
plain, blunt language, explaining "briefly the
reasons why ihe English people are startled
and astonished at ihe sit ape-ol the American
case. He begins by !aytag it down aa a posi?
tive fact that any amicable settlement on the
baals laid down by Senator Sumner is jost as
Impossible now1 as lt was at the time of his
celebrated speech; and that the idea ol admit?
ting claims for constructive damages has
always been regarded in England as absurd.
This being so, the Joint commission WSB ap?
pointed with the hearty concurrence of both
nations. The resultant treaty was scanned
with great interest, ano> according to
Mr. Hughes, it became the universal
opinion that the text only allowed for
the reference o? direct claims for the
arbitrators, and that the United States had
consented to waive the previous claims for
constructive damages. Mr. Hughes finds an
additional evidence in favor of the latter sup?
position in the protocol ef the conferences
now published. He then shows how naturally
the publication of the American case, reviving
all the old claims, has excited the alarm and
indignation of the English people. The Amer- I
ican proposition, that all these mooted points
may be safely left to the arbitrators for dec?s
iou, does not please Mr. Hughes, who confes?
ses that the risk appears too pre at. The only
conclusion in his mind is that ^ugland's only
course ls to take a preliminary objection to
the case, In so far as it relates to constructive
damages, and that, If the court should decide I
against England, the only alternative would
be the deplorable one of withdrawal from ar-1
The City Connell and the Bine Ridge
We hope that the City Council, at its meet?
ing to-night, will take action in opposition J
to the infamous Bine Ridge Railroad billi
?ow before the State Senate. The citizens
or Charleston are deeply concerned in de?
feating this bill, because lt adds a load of
$1,800,000 to the debt of the State without
any just equivalent; because it gives the
present Blue Ridge Railroad Company the
power to extend theirW or build branches
to any part of South Carolina, and because
it places the whole Blue Ridge Railroad
property, costing about four million dollars, I
tn the hands of a party of greedy specula?
tors who paid only $13,000 for the $1,300,
000 of State stock which controls the road,
and who do not even promise that they willi
complete the road when, freed from all debt
w h a Lacro ver, it is left in their care.
We believe that the sale of the State stock
in the Bine Ridge Railroad is of quest io o a-1
bte validity, and that the Ring directors and
President Patterson himself were not legally
elected. But, apart from these points, we
have the certainty that the City subscription
to the stock of the road,is upon the verge of J.
extinction, and that jt is proposed to give to
a clique of irresponsible tricksters -a power j'
I which will i enable them to divert* from j"
Charleston the whole benefit o[ the railroad I
system, to secure which the City has in?
curred a debt of more than a' million dollars, jj
i We think that the City Council should
protest against the passage of the Blue
j Ridge Bill, and should instruct the City At?
torney, Mr. Corbin, who is also one of the
Senators from Charleston, to take such steps
'as may be necessary for the protection of
our interests. This will, at least, prevent I
the supporters of the Blue Ridge bill from
saying, em they do say, that Charleston j
cares so little about her million of money I
and her Western connections, that she is not J
willing to submit to the Legislature the rea- j
SODS why the mensure should not pass. A
statement sp gratuitously uDjust should re-1
ceive an unequivocal contradiction. I j
The Charges' Against the County Offl- J
, . dals. j 1
The Grand Jury of Charleston County I \
make out a strong case against the county J ;
officials. It is, of coarse, a one-sided state
ment; but tbc-cbarges are so grave, and so j
well agree with public report, that, - com-1 ;
ing as they do from a body of jurors, the I j
majority of whom are colored Radicals, they f j
deserve instant investigation. In this de- J.
mund the accused officials will, If they know J i
what is good for them, heartily join. Silence j '
now is ?quivalent to a confession of guilt j1
The Grand Jury charge the County Com-11
missioners with evading legal scrutiny of ]
their transactions; which evasion is aggra
vated by the fact that the Commissioners
control the paying ont, every year, of about
one hundred thousand dollars of county I
funds, and by the unpleasant circumstance
that seven indictments, for fraudulent practi- j
ces in office, are now pending against two of
the present Commissioners. The Jury recom?
mend that the Commissioners BO indicted be
tried without delay; for "they already stand
"convicted by public opinion of being chiefly
"responsible for the present scandalous con?
dition of the county finances, resulting in
"virtual bankruptcy, -as numerous citizens
? and county officials are institutiog suits
"against the county for their just dues."
Against the County Treasurer the charges
are that he has paid out $170,000, although
continuously announcing that "there were
"no funds ia the treasury;" that payments
were made clandestinely to speculators, who
had bought county checks at- a large dis?
count; that persons "intimately connect
"ed with the County Treasurer'' are specu?
lators in count; checks,;, that the greater
part of the tax collections for the current
year have been used to pay checks chargea
able against the tax levy of 1870, with the
speculating holders of which checks "the
"Treasurer has been, and is, acting io
"concert." They recommend, therefore, j
that the County Treasurer be required to
fun. i ah a full statement of all moneys paid I
out, with the names of tho persons to whom
money was paid, and with the original
These are the main points of the present?
ment; and we repeat that the charges of the
Grand Jury are so definite and grave ns to
demand a judicial investigation. This is
due to the accused as well as to the taxpay?
ing public. ' j
Just as there is consolation in the belief
that the historian of the future will justify
the Southern States in their attempt to
establish their independence, so is there sol?
ace for the taxpajersof South Carolina in
the knowledge that the Radicals themselves
make frank avowal of the corruption and
extravagance which, in the concrete form of
a two per cent, tax, press with numbing
force upon the energies of the people. But
although the constitutional rightlulness of
secession muy, some day, be conceded, that
tardy justice will not, compensa e the t-'outb
Tor ul! she has lost and all 6he has suffered.
Though we were right, we were defeated and
overcome as though we were wholly and
systematically wrong. And, if Congressional
and Legislative committees report that onr
Radical raiers are, in their view, as impu?
dently lawless as we knowthem'to be, where
and when shall these avowals take a practi?
cal and beneficial shape ?
The Radical Ka-Klnx Committee of Con?
gress are forced to say that they can give
"little weight to any" assertion made by
Governor Scott; that the condnct or the
State officials in raising money at the rate or
three dollars for one is "indefensible;" that
bribery has prevailed,, in the Legislature, to
such an extent that legislation was controlled
by a band commonly called the Forty
Thieves, who would no?permit any impor?
tant acts to pass "until they were satisfied;"
and that the facts disprove the allegation that
"the deplorable financial condition of the
"State" was caused by the Ru-Klux organi?
These assertions, as far as they go, con?
firm what the Democratic press have writ?
ten, week after week, during the past four
years.' Nor do they tell as plainly the tale
of fraud as do the trebling of the State debt,
and the tenfold increase or taxation. They
are lesB shocking, because so familiar, than
the knowledge that the State Senate delib?
erately retain In his seat a man whom their
own committee declare to have been defeat?
ed by his Democratic opponent.
Well may we.think that, if an exposure or
the rascality or the State Government could
give us relief, that relier would have come
long before this 1 But we must continue
the straggle. We mast paint the thieves
and perjurers in their true colors. But the
purification or the government, after all,
must be the work or the people or the State.
They have nothing to expect from Congres?
sional 'committees, and nothing to hope for
from the leaders in Colombia who boast or
their sacceasful trickery and glory in their
infamy. Only by patient labor can the peo?
ple meet the enormous demands made upon
them. Only by firmness, by pers?v?rance,
by liberality of sentiment, by .a steady look?
ing to the wished for goal may the people
compass their deliverance. We must stand
ready to choose the least of the many evils
which surround us. We iii us t be willing to
take what we can get, as the first step to
obtaining all that we can desire.
A Fact Tor tbe German?,
The New fork Tribune has Information that
Baron Gerolt, the veteran Prussian Minister at
Washington^ was not recalled by his govern?
ment on account of any exigency in Us own
politics, but on the complaint of officers of
dur government that he manifested undue zeal
In serving the Interests of Germany during the
war with France. If such complaint was made,
lt was probably because the Baron exhibited
too mnch curiosity in regard to the supplies of
government arms and ammunition furnished
to France, a matter that ls about io be Investi?
gated by Congress, for there ls no limit to ihe.

who dare to interfere with any of the plunder?

question which seems to puzzle some of the
most ardent supporters of the administration.
The "Hf?then Chinee" Scare.
The question of Mongolian Immigration does
not seem likely to become difficult for many
years to come. The commissioner of mining
Industry shows in his recent report lhat to the
35,933 Chinese assigned to California in the
census of 1860 the census of 1870 adds only
14,377, although extraordinary efforts pad been
made to induce emigration irom the Flowery
Land. In all the Southern Slates there are
but 868 Chinese, and In the Middle and Eattrrn
but 178. In Ihe mining sections we find 1949
Chinese In Montana, 3142 In Nevada, and 3330
In Oregon. In the Territories alone their total
is 7075 in an aggregate population of 442,730
excepting the lud?an Territory. It ls evident
(rom these statistics that the white working?
men of the Norlh and the Pacific coast and
the colored laborers of the South have but lit?

The Great Sea Tunnel.
The tunnel under the Straits of Dover, from
England to France, is at length to be com?
menced, a joint stock company for the purpose
having been organized and registered in Lon?
don. Two millions sterling will be required
for the experimental driftway a, and the tun?
nel can be finished In five years for five mil?
lions sterling, working day and night from
both ends. The distance ls twenty-two miles,
and as no shafts for ventilation are spoken of,
it is understood that the plan includes two
parallel tunnels with trains running only In
one direction through each so as to keep up a
constant current of air. We entertain no
doubt of ihe ultimate success ol this plan; and
when it shall have been accomplished there
can be little doubt that lt will be the progeni?
tor ol other great works of the same charac?
ter under the sea, Just as the short sub-marine
cables were the beginnings of the great At?
lantic cables. Applying ihls to the great pro?
blem of shortening the lime occupied by the
transit between Europe and America, we find
that if a tunnel were driven under the chan?
nel to Ireland and steamers run from Galway
to ihe coast ol Newfoundland, and a tunnel
connecting the latter, with the main laud, via
Cape Breton, the sea voyage might be reduced
to three or lour days, and the whole time be?
tween London and New York traversed by sea
and rall in about a week.

Major Lockhart, In Fair to See, gives us
a lively story, well worked-up and especially
happy in the artistic touches which s imulate

ual manifestations upon the future religious

mission to the authority of Rome. Spiritual?
ism, which adopts scientific conclusions and.
yet demonstrates the immortality of the soul,
offers the only mode of escape. According to
Mr. Owen, the miracles which accompanied
the birth of Christianity were manifestations
of the forces which we now Include under the
