-The ill starred Mrs. Wharton is not allowed
to rest In peace during the Interim between
her two trials, but even at this early day the
partisans of the Van Ness family, at Wash- j
' ington and elsewhere, are beginning to pub?
lish their proposed line of prosecution. Ac- j
cording to a washington correspondent, the
testimony upon the Van Ness case ls to be
more startling and definite than lu the Ketch
um tragedy. Vau Ne?-s say* that he had never
been asked, in all his acquaintance with Mrs.
Wharton, to drink anything uutll the particu?
lar lime when she asked him to have some
dat et. He drauk but little, and then stat t d
to go home, ouly a short distance away, but
was seized with blindness on the way. Grop?
ing along like a drunken man, he was able
to reacn his doorstep and pull the bell. As
the door opened he fell forward In his hal),
and kne* no more for several dajB. When
Van Ness recovered h<3 went again to Mrs.
Wharton's, and she Invited him to par
take of another beverage. He felt the same
pain coming on him as before, and Immedi?
ately started for the front door, bat before he
could put his hand on the knob be reeled and
fell Into the hall and was dragged Into the
parlor, where he remained for a week, suffer?
ing nausea and the agonies of internal fire
during the whole period of Ketchum's si sk-1
ness, who meantime died above stairs. Dur?
ing this sickness lt ls alleged that Mrs. Whar?
ton frequently prepared his medicine, and
every time he drank of her preparations his
agonies returned; while, fed by his own family,
he recovered st lost. The correspondent also
says that social circles are exercised over the
fact that Mrs. Wharton had assumed a degree
of wealth which she never possessed; and her
former companions, to whom she said she
had an income of twenty thousand dollars a
year, are loud 4n denunciation of her. In
particular, General Brice, Eetchum's brother
in-law, now retired f. om the service, relates
the story with great severity maDy times a
Tbe Conspiracy A gain?t Charleston.
Although a few short-sighted Charles
tonians declare that the purchases of South
Carolina Railroad stock, by Mr. Moses Tay?
lor, of New York, and Mr. Wm. B. Johnston,
of Macon, are innocent speculative transac?
tions which have no more to do with the Cen?
tral Railroad of Georgia than with the Suez
Canal, the mass of th9 people are satisfied
that a Ring has been formed whose object is
to obtain control of the South Carolina Rall
I road and work it exclusively in the interest
of the Central Railroad and of Savannah.
The Ring have moved quietly and sagacious?
ly, bnt enongh bas leaked out or has bean
boldly acknowledged to convince all citizens
of Charleston, save the constitutional L o
No things, that a conspiracy is formed against
the commercial life of the city, which will in?
evitably succeed unless the people act with
more energy and foresight than they usually
display in matters of grave public concern.
The New Yorkers think it would be a good
thing for the Sooth Carolina Railroad to paes
into the hands of the Central Railroad, and
the Daily Bulletin supports the hypothesis
by a tissue of misrepresentation and down?
right untruth. Savannah and Macon know,
whether they admit it or not, that the effort
is making to choke off Savannah's powerful
rival. But from all parts of South Carolina
come protests against any combination j
which proposes to place the management of
our main thoroughfare in the hands of our
commercial antagonist, and The South, a
weekly paper printed in New York and Inde-1
pendent of the Wall street Rings, sends us I
earnest words of warning. This paper Bays :
"The South is fully alive to the Importance
of Increased transportation facilities, and in
every one ol the Southern States ihe deepest
interest is manifested, either in the construe-1
tlon of new roads or the Improvement of old I
ones. There are not leas tb?n five thousand
miles of newly projected railroads In these I
States, on moat of which work is progressing I
rapidly. The attentive reader of our paper
from week to week can but be struck with the
intense activity shown in this direction by the
"Il is not alone in the construction of these
new routes of travel that these Important j
changes are taking place. In the awakened
Interest of prominent commercial centres to
the absolute necessity of better and cheaper
transportation facilites, we nod Ihe^fittUUtttl
sources of schemes for
(roi of some ot the old and well-established j
lines. The - grasping ambition of the great
railroad king, Thomas Scott, of Philadelphia, I
has led him to place his strong hand upon the j
leading artery ol' travel towards the Pacifie, to j
which his recent election to the Presideccy ol
the Southern Pacific Railroad, in place of Mar?
shall 0. Roberts, resigned, ls a fitting climax.
We look with distrust noon these ?rlgintic mo- I
nopolists, while we cannot help admiring the
audacious boldness of the mind that can con-1
eel ve and execute sieh vast eut ?prises.
"The name of Wadley Is but little less known
in the South than that of Scott, for his constant
aim lor years has been to contre 1 a line of
roads westward from Savannah towards the j
Pacific, making his objective point for the
present at Vicksburg.
"The most recent attempt to secure another j
one of the old lines ls that of the Central Rail- j
road ot Georgia to lease the South Carolina
Railroad from Charleston to Augusta. The
bare suggestion, we are glad to notice, has
aroused the energies of the Charlestonlans,
and the matter ls not likely to go further at
present. It would be the most suicidal policy
on the part of Charleston to permit any such
scheme to be consummated. The elly itself
had better buy a controlling Interest in the
road, rather than permit the control of it to
pass away from her own people.
"The general interest exhibited all over the
South in behalf of railroads Is certaloly one of I
the mostgrattlylng signs of returning prosper!
ty to that section. With Increased transporta
Hon facilities all the other elements of material
prosperity and growth will quickly follow, I
and the waste places will be rebuilt, and the
desert be made to blossom as the rose."
-There are two points in the foregoing ar- j
tide which we desire to particularly notice.
The first is, that the matter of the lease "is
"not likely togo further at present," and the
second is, that "the city itself had better
"buy a controlling interest in the road rather I
"than permit the control of it to pass away
"Irom her own people." I
Our contemporary correctly says that the J
matter of the lease will not go farther at
present, but its words should not lull the
people into a false security. The Central
Ring had some hope of carrying their poiot
by a coup de main at the late annual meet-1
ing of the stockholders of the South Caro
lina Railroad, but when their object was
discovered, although at the 'eleventh hour,
they contented themselves with a reco?
noissance in small force, and retired as soon I
as they bad felt the strength of their adver
sanes. .They saw that they were in the
minority, and we doubt that the Ring
voted any of their stock But they did not
abandon the contest. They withdrew from
the market in the expectation that the failure
of the eSoi t to lease the road would cause
the shares to decline-their plan being to buy J
the shares at the lower figures. This plan
they are steadily carrying out. They will I
go into the market whenever, in their judg?
ment, the shares are near the bottom. We I
assert therefore, that the lease of the road j
ts ouly postponed, and will (if we lie idle) be j
carried into effect as soon as the Ring ac
quire a voting majority of the stock of the j
ruad. I i
The second point made by The South is I ?
that it is to the interest of the City of J ?
Charleston itself to buy a controlling amount I
of the stock of the South Carolina Rauroud. '
Upon this subject we can only, at this mo
ment, advance these propositions: The j,
loss of the ?south Carolina Railroad, or its i
passage into the charge of a Bing who will
work against the city, is equivalent to the
commercial rain of Charleston, and to the
rapid decline in value and ultimate ex?
tinction of its most valuable property; the
danger is one which threatens the whole
community, and is not confined to any class
of citizens; the subject, therefore, is one
which can properly, and with perfect fair?
ness, be dealt with tv the city as a corpora?
tion representing the entire people. The
difficulties in the way of individual actioo,
and the superior force and certainty of cor?
porate action, we shall endeavor to explain
never forgetting, however, that the debt of
the city is oppressively large, and that it ls
of the first consequence to guard against
any avoidable increase of debt and of tax?
ation. A matter so momentous as the life
or death of Charleston demands of us ample
discussion, so that if the people choose to
walk to destruction they may do it with
their eyes open, and a full knowledge of
what the future has in store.
Just So T
It ?3 not surprising that the State Senate
should reject the joint resolution proposing
a constitutional amendment, providing for
Cumulative voting. A body which passed
the Blue Ridge bill by a nearly unanimous
vote could not be expected to look favorably
upon a measure which has no other recom?
mendation than its propriety and intrinsic
THE LEADERS OF PUBLIC OPINION IN IRELAND.
SWIFT, FLOOD, GRATTAN, O'CONNEL. By Wil?
liam Edward Haripole Lecky, L. A. New
York: D. Appleton & Co. 1872. Charles?
ton: Holmeb'd Book House.
, The four essays contained in this volume
were published anonymously many years ago.
They are solid and valuable contributions to
the literature of one of the most perplexing
questions of the day, and their interest is en?
hanced by an introduction in which Mr. Lecky
gives bis latest opinions upon the question of
Irish discontent Mr. Lecky's vlewB are very
suggestive, and deserve the attention of Irish?
In the essays on the career and character of
Swift, Flood, Grattan and O'connel, Mr. Lecky
tells the story bl the growth and degeneration
I of public opinion in Ireland-the public opin?
ion which Swift created and Flood fostered,
which, In the hands of Grattan, accomplished
Irlsb. Independence, and under O'Connell saw
its gr?atest triumph and rapid decline, lt is
hard to realize the infamous condition of
things with which these men had to deal. For
a century the Irish Catholics (four-fliths of the
population) were subject to "a penal code"
which left them no civil or personal freedom.
The first measure of relief was passed In 1768,
but Catholics were not upon a fooling of com?
plete equality with Protestants till 1792. Their
disabilities from 1691 to 1792 are summarized
by Mr. Lecky as follows:
By this code the Roman Catholics were abso?
lutely excluded from the Parliament, from the
magistracy, from the corporations, irom the
bench, and from the bar. They could Bot vote
at parliamentary elections or at vestries. They
could not act as constables or sheriffs or jury?
men, or-eerve in the army or navy, or become
solicitor.'1, or even hold ihe positions of game?
keeper or watchman. Schools were establish?
ed to bring up their children as Protestants;
and If i hey reuised to avail themselves of
there, they were deliberately consigned to
hopeless Iguorance, bel?g excluded from the
university, and debarred, nuder crushing pen?
alties, irom uctlng as schoolmasters, as ushers,
were refused at home. They could not marry
Frotes;ant.-; and if such a marriage were cele?
brated, it wits annulled by luw, and the priest
who officiated might be hung. They could not
buy laud, or inherit or receive lt as a gift Hom
Protestants, or hold life annuities, or leases
for more than thirty-one years, or any l?ate on
such terms that the prouts ol the land exceed?
ed one-third ol'the rent. If any Catholic lease?
holder b) his industry so Increased hispruiits
that they exceeded thia proportion, and did
not immediately ruuke a corresp audiug In?
crease lu his payments, any Protestant who
gave tile information could ent-r Into posses?
sion ol lils farm If any Catholic hud secretly
purchased either his olu forieited estate or any
other laud, any Protestant who informed
against him might become the proprietor.
Tue lew Catholic landholders who remained
were deprived of the right, whtch all other
classes possessed, of bequeathing their lauds
us they pleased, It their sous continued Cath?
olics, it was divided equally between them. If,
however, the oldest, son consented to aposta?
tize, the estate was settled upon him, the
father from that hour became only a life-ten?
ant and lost all power of selling, mortgaging,
or otherwise disposing of lt if the wife ot a
Catholic abandoned the rellgiou of her hus?
band, she was Immediately free from his con?
trol, and the chancellor was empowered to as?
sign to her a certain portion of ber husband's
property. If any child, however young, pro?
tested itself a Protestant, it was at once taken
from the father's care, and the chancellor could
oblige the father lo declare upon oath the
value of his property, both real and personal;
and could assign for the present maintenance
and future porllou of the converted child such
proportion of that property as the court might
decree. No Catholic could be guardian either
to his owu children or to those of another
person; and therefore a Catholic who died
while his children were mino? had the
bitterness ol' reflecting upon his deuth-bed
that they must pass into the care of Protes?
tants. An annuity of from twenty to forty
pounds was provided as a bribe for every
piieatwho would become a Protestant To
convert a Protestant to Catholicism was a
capital offence. In every walk ol life the
Catholic was pursued by persecution or re
si rici ion. Except in the linen trade, he
could not have more lhaa two apprentices.
He could not possess a horse of ihe va?ue of
more thun Ave pounds, and any Protestan!,
on giving bim Ave pounds, could take his
horse. He was compelled to pay double to
the militia. He was loroidden, except under
pan Icu.ar conditions, to live in Galway or
Limerick. lu case of war with a Catholic
power, the Catholics were obliged to reim?
burse the damage done by the enemy'B priva?
teers. The Legislature, lt is true, did not
venture absolutely to suppress their worship,
bul it existed only by a doubtful connivance,
stigmatized as If it were a species of licensed
prostitution, and subject to conditions which,
if they had been enforced, would have render?
ed Its continuance Impossible. An old law
which prohibited it. and another which enjoin?
ed attendance ut the Anulican worship, re?
mained unrepeated, and might at auy time be
revived; and the former was, in fact, enforced
during the Scotch rebellion of 1715. The
paiisli priests, who alone were allowed to
offlclaie, were compelled to be registered, and
were forbidden to keep curates, or lo offlclaie
anywhere except in their own parishes. The
chapels might not have bells or steeples. No
crosses might be publicly erected. Pilgrim?
ages lo the holy Wella were forbidden. Not
only all monks and Irl a rs, but also all Catholic
archbishops, bishops, deacons and other dig?
nitaries, were ordered by a certain day to
leave ibo country; and if stier that date they
were found lu Irviaud, they were liable lo be
first imprisoned und then banished; and li
ufter that banishment they rei urned to dis
cna'ge their duty lu their dioces s, they were
1 able lo Hie punishment ol' death. To facili?
tate the discovery ol offences against the code,
t*o justices of ihe peace might at any time
compel any Catholic ol eighteen years of uge
to u ec.are when and where he lust heard mass,
whai persons were present, and who ofllci
atfd; and ll he refused to give evidence, they
mignt imprison him for twelve mouth-, or
until he paid a fine of twenty pounds. Any
DUO who harbored ecclesiastics from beyond (
ihe; seas wus Mibject to fines, v/hlch, for the
ti:?rd offence, amounted to the confi-cai lon of
all ni* g u d?. A graduated sia'o of rewanis I
was offered for the di-covery of Cmhoiic
bishops, priests und schoolmasters; ann a reso- <
I ut iou ol ili?> House ol Common pronounced '
the prosecuting and Informing ugaiust Papists
an hoiioiabe service lo Hie government.
And ihe Irish Protestants, also, were the
abjects of Jealousy and persecution. All the
prominent political officers were always Eng- (
nrj YT ?a ; njciiiniiot/an mu,
1 lahmen; BO were, witt few exceptions, the
bishops and judges. Of the 300 members of |
Parliament, 200 were returned by 100 indi
vlduals and 50 by ten. Oae peer returned 16
members. The pension Hst was enormous,
and was Increased at the pleasure of the
Crown. Deliberate attempts were made to
destroy all Irish Industry. Stringent laws
extinguished the trade in cattle and in wool'
and the export o? glass was prohibited.
It was in the midst of the prostration caused
by these laws that Swift first roused the senti?
ment of nationality. For fifty years the strug?
gle was continued. A handful of men wrest?
ed from Great Britain the abolition of all
legislative restrictions upon trade, the Inde?
pendence of the Irish Parliament, the release
of the Irish courts from the control of those of |
England, the Irremovability of Irish Judges.
Theee events and the display of political talent
on the part of the Irish alarmed England, and
led to the Act of Union. We need not trace
any further the saddening tale.
Mr. Lecky portrays the characters of the
Irish leaders with graphic clearness, and his
essays will at least do good in crystallizing
public sentiment, and In reminding Irishmen
that what they have once done they may, in
like manner, do again.
