. -The experiment of a narrow-gauge rail-1
way is soon to be tried in the vicinity of New
York. The New Jersey Legislature recently I
granted a charter to a company authorizing it I
to construct a three-foot track lrom Jersey
City to Suffern?, a point about thirty miles I
west on the Erle Road. The lranchise ls io
?he hande of gentlemen of enterprise andi
capital, and, as the new route runs through a
thickly-settled and desirable section, where I
. passenger travel will be very considerable, j
there is a prospect that the experiment will I
be fairly tested under favorable circumstances, j
-The North German Gazette, while lt re- j
peats its denial of the alarming statements I
lately published In London In regard to the I
relations between France and Germany, yet
adds that an unpleasant feeling had been
caused throughout the Empire by the speech of
M. Thiers at the time ol the adjournment of the
Assembly, lt speaks also Oft he character of
th? French war budget, and Intimates that lt I
soggestB caution on the part of Germany, and
concludes, that if the relations between the
two countries were more favorable the occu-1
patlon of French territory by German troops I
would not be BO prolonged.
-The Minister ol Public Worship has given
formal Dot Ice to the Bishop of Er mel and that, I
as sentences of excommunication against Ger- j
man subjects clash with the civil law, and af- j
feet unfavorably the social status, therefore I
the consent of the government mutt be ob-1
; talned before such sentences are pronounced. I
' Tho minister Insists on obedience to the L.<va j
as a duty incumbent on ail, and Intimates that j
failure in that duty on the part of tbe bishop I
will lead to the withdrawal by the government
of its official recognition of his ecclesiastical
functions. The Bishop of Ermeland answers
apologetically, affirming that civil honor la In j
no way affected by excommunication. I
-The State of Virginia has thousands of
acres of land which have gone untaxed since
1865 because the assessors could find no
owner; and, strange to say, no claimant. The
registrar of the land office ls now selling
these farms, giving tax titles therefor, but j
with? a provision entirely invalidating them j
if. the real owner turns up within a reasona?
ble nnmber of years. Of coarse the buyers 11
ran consider? Me risk, but, on the other hand, I ,
' the land ls sold for one dollar an acre. Last I,
year twenty thousand acres were thus die-1,
posed QI, and lt said that only one owner bas I
. 'appeared for any part of the land so obtain-11
ed, and that his propel ty contained less than
oue hundred and fifty acres. *
-The movement of the St. Louis bar in
favor of wearing black silk gowns in court j
meets with favor in other parts of the coan
try. The Law Journal says : "We do not ad- j
vocate a return of the costume of English I j
Judges and barristers of the middle ages-to 1?
- wigs, coifs, saps, bands aad collars, or even I '
' to green, red, blue or purple bags, for these, I
. particularly all but the bags, would not be-1,
come a dignified and learned profession ia a I
scientific and intellectual period. But exton-11
sive use ol the robe and the gown we believe, I
' would add lustre, distinction and gravity to I
the bench and the bar, and would be an in
centlve to all wearers of these professional
Insignia to render themselves worthy ol the
-Misa Grundy, the newspaper correspon?
dent, photographs Mrs. Mason as she appeared
in the committee-room at Washington with all
the nicety of detail that women are so food of
displaying towards each other. The commit?
tee-men were all smoking, which was both un?
gallant and pernicious, and Mrs. Mason was
the target for smoke and questions both. She
stood lt-like a man-In a black ellk ault
trimmed with feather, a pretty white irill
around her throat, a pale pink rose In her
hair, andcrlmpB and curls In prolusion. Such
a costume would naturally inspire fori.tude
and good nature; but she lost her temper just
once, aod replied so tartly that the questioner
suddenly went out to take spiritual refresh?
ment, aod disturbed her equanimity no more.
He black eyes actually struck fire, but it was
over la a second, and the plumage remallad
. unruffled to the close.
-Hon. Wm. McDougal, in a receut lecture
at Hamilton, Canada, upon the relations be?
tween Great Britain and Canada, said that
after consultation with high parties In
England, he had been forced to the conclusion
that the policy was cot to abandon the Colo?
nies, nor to act so as to drive them away from
their allegiance, but to prepare them for
maintaining their own position by means or
their own right hands, and make them consci?
ous that if attack was levelled against them they
most depend mainly, If not altogether, upon
their own resources to resist it-falling in
Which, they must be prepared to accept the
> consequences, whatever they might be, which
followed invasion aod conquest. Speaking for
himself, and speaking freely, frankly and
truthfully, he was of the opinion that "the
anion of these provinces was the preliminary
step for the establishment of a regular sys?
tem of government ia British America which
would enable us, when the moment arrived
When necessity pressed upon as-to maintain
separate and Independent existence among
the nations cf the earth."
-The strike of the Warwickshire agricul?
tural laborers seems to have had reasoo lor it,
if they are DO better off than their Essex bro
toar, who tells his story in the Dally Tele?
graph. For fifteen yearBthls honeBt fellow
has worked for the same master ten hours
dally, at the munificent wage? ol eighteen
pence a day. On this he has had to support
himself, a wife and three children. The wife's
labor adds to these scanty resaurces two shil?
lings, an?* one of the children earns two pence
more a week. For his cottage he pays four
pounds per annum. Naturally, poor Hodge's
fare on this Income has not been pre?
cisely luxurious. For breakfast, he haB
generally a bread and water mess, "and
if we have it, a cold potato." His dinner
"is a bolled dumpling, with potatoes and on?
ions in it," and he is iain to make his supper
on a cup ol tea, a bit of bread, u a tiny bit of
cheese, (If we have lt,)ar 1 for artreat, an on-,
lon." He can never "get bc.f or mutton, but
sometimes a pig's 'pluck'-say six times a
year." What would an American farm-hand
think of having to lire himself, an i tobring
up a family on "bolled dumplings, with pota?
toes and onions ?" Or ls it any wonder that
the majority of the men at the Warwickshire
meetings are described as being stunted-look?
ing, and with small limbs and shrunken mus?
cles ? Labor nourished on dumplings, one
would think, could not be of a very sturdy
President Grant and Ku-Klnxlsm.
The electioneering document, in the shape
ol a special message upon the subject of
the Ku-Klux, submitted to Congress by Pres?
ident Grant, may fairly be taken as a deliber?
ate expression of the determination of the
the administration to persevere in the policy
which hos brought distress upon innocent
tkonsands, and keeps a prosperous and
peaceful section of Sooth Carolina under
the heel of the Federal soldiery. It mast not
be assumed, however, that President Grant
has any particular spite against thia State,
or against the South. The persecution ol
South Carolina answers his purpose, and is
expected to strengthen bis chances of re?
election. Casting his eyes over the field, he
saw that political capital might be made
more easily in this State than in any other
State of the North or South. And, when?
ever he believes that it will be profitable to
him to treat Georgia or Ohio, New York or
Virginia, as he has treated South Carolina,
the attempt will be made to reduce them,
also, to a condition of military subjection.
The excuse there caa be made as great as
the exenae in South Carolina. A man who,
as President of a great people, will place
nine counties coder martial law because be
has been told that a wide-spread conspiracy
exists there, is capable of placing New York
nader martial law because the people re?
fuse to be plandered any longer by Ute Leets,
Stockings and Murphys, who are bis dear
Meads and ohoseo representatives. This is
the warning which President Grant now
gives to ali who dare to cross his pith, and
the full meaning of his last pronunciamento
will not be veiled from the keen vision of the
patriotic mea who shall sooa assemble ia
Convention ia the great City of the West.
President Grant says that be was informed
that a condition of "lawlessness and terror"
existed in certain portions of Sooth Caro?
lina, aad that be requested Attorney-Gen?
eral Akerman to visit the State and report to
him apon the subject That, report was
made in October, 1871; aod, as President
Grant forgets to say, the proclamation sus?
pending the writ of habeas corpus ia nine
counties was instantly Issued. There was no
inquiry Into the troth of the representations
made by Mr. Akerman. Upon his bare
statement, the proclamar iou was issued;
with so indecent a haste that a county which
had not been accused was included in the
list. A "clerical error" was allowed to
place a whole community at the mercy of
the Federal soldiers, and their disreputable
assistants. At the time that the proclama?
tion was issued every county Included ia the
denunciation waa profoundly peaceful.
There had been isolated acts of violence, bat
they were not continued. The excitement I
of the elections had died away, and there
?vas no thought of organized resistance to
anybody or anything. It is a farcical ab?
surdity to say that, in October, 1871, a com
bination existed embracing at least two
thirds of the active white men in nine coun?
ties; their object being to prevent "the free
"actions of citizens who were friendly to
"the Constitution and the Government of
?the United States." There was an organ?
ization, it appears, in the upper part of the
State, bat its object was the protection of its
members against the incendiary acts and
brutal violence of the Scott militiamen.
There was no hope of redress in the State
Coarte, and the people banded themselves
together to punish crime, and guard them?
selves from the attacks of the negro militia.
No proof has yet been given that the Ku
Klux Klan, os it is called, did, as a body,
attempt to prevent any class of citizens
from doing any lawful thing. There were
members of the organization-witnesses
whom the government pats on the stand
everyday-who committed murder; but the
organization is not responsible for the con?
duct of its individual members. When a
Mason or an Odd Fellow robs or slays, do we
charge every brother of the order with being
aa accomplice ia the crime ? But President
Grant does not content himself with general
misrepresentation ; he soon comes down to
details. He has "no doubt" that similar or?
ganizations exist ia other counties, and has
"no doubt" that they are a part of a grand
system of "criminal associations pervading
"most of the Southern States." Fortunate?
ly the bare word of President* Grant has
verylitUe weight in the country; although,
unfortunately for ua, Congress has clothed
him with almost dictatorial powers. He
can arrest citizens of South Carolina by the
hundred, and lodge them in jail until it suits
his officers to try and convict them ; but he
and all his armies cannot persuade the peo?
ple of the United States that a majority of
the white citizens of South Carolina are
members of an organization ia which they
are bound by oaths which "they are :aught
"to regard as of higher obligation than the
"lawful oaths taken before civil magis
"trates." They may call U3 Hebels, but
they know we are not perjurers.
The assertions made by President Grant
in regard to the number of outrages com?
mitted in South Carolina are gross exagge?
rations. From one end to the other the
State has been investigated. The deputy
marshals and Major Merrili's subordinates
have ridden over every mile ol the so-called
Ku-Klux district They pretend to know
of every unlawful act which haj been com?
mitted. Tet President Grant has nothing
better than bis___ word to give in support
of the monstrJMstatement that "the in
"Stances of criminal violence" coala be
"reckoned by thousands." Tie Ku-Rlnx
trial3 ia.Columbia and in Charleston furnish
no proof of the correctness of each a charge.
President Grant has made a statement
which neither be nor his satraps can sustain.
As much may be said of his recapitulation
of the objects of the "illegal combinations
"popularly known as the Ku-Klux Klan."
Tbe constitution of the order, as read and
sworn to over and over again, both in Co?
lumbia and in this city, shows plainly and
distinctly that it was not its purpose to de?
prive the colored citizens of the right to
bear arms and of the ballot, or to suppress
colored scbosls and reduce the colored
people "to a condition closely akin to tbat
"of slavery." Long before the visit of At?
torney-General Akerman to Sooth Carolina,
the white citizens of the State had recog?
nized, in tbe amplest manner, the changes
in the State and Federal Constitution. In
the canvass which ended in October, 1870,
the whites and the blacks sate in the same
committee rooms, attended the same meet?
ings, spoke from the same platforms, and
were voted for on the same ballots. A con?
vention of the conservative people of the
State had declared their acquiescence in the
civil and political equality of all classes of
citizens, irrespective of race, color or pre?
vious condition. And yet President Grant
would have na believe that twelve months
later the majority of the white people, as an
organization, were engaged in an endeavor
to accomplish the impossible-that is, to re?
duce the blacks to "a condition closely akin
"to that of slavery."
The loose, statements of President Grant
will not pass unchallenged. They will be
scrutinized in the House of Representatives,
where they have already been declared to be
untrue. And this we der-'.re, not so much
I for our own sake as for the good of the
j country. The cup of our bitterness is full.
I No worse humiliation can be devised than
j that which has already been borne. The in
J geonity of President Grant's advisers cannot
inflict npon South Carolina a burden more
j grievous thif? that which she now endures,
j It ls true that hundreds of our citizens may
I be convicted, tried and sentenced to long
I terms of imprisonment ; but no new measures
I of iniquity will excite surprise. Every ves
I tige of protection has been torn away.
I With folded hands we await the result. But
I there are States which the spoilers have not
I reached; there are millions of good citizens
j who crave a return of peace and a roBtdra
I tion of fraternal feeling. To them we say
j that, as it bas been meted to ns, it will be
I meted to them, if the dictatorial authority
I of the President and the usurped powers of
Congress be not taken away at the polls.
I To them we say that it is impossible for the
wbite men of tbe Soutb to respect "the
I "old flag" and love the Union while the
Federal soldiers are the instrumente of
I tyranny, while the United States laws are
I the symbols of oppression, while in the
j United States Courts it is shown that no
I wbite man has aoy personal or political
j rights which the Federal officials are bound
I to respect. All tbat we ask is the free gov?
ernment guaranteed by the Constitution.
I Give us tbat, treat us as American citizens,
I not as slaves and dogs, and in fonr years'
I time the whole country will be united in
j thought and in purpose, and North and Soutb,
I East and West, will work side by side, as
I equal laborers, for. the maintenance of tbe
liberties and tbe increase of the wealth and
power of the Republic. j
