a splendid mansion in the Champs Elysees in
Paris-the same where' Patti passed her
honeymoon. Her father-in-law, M. Rouzaud,
who is a colonial merchant, has. In honor of
his son's marriage, given a sumptuous dinner
to his clerks, and placed in each of their nap?
kins a bank-note for one thousand francs.
-Another monstrous fraud has been un?
earthed in New York. A telegram from that
city announces-that, -in the building of the
Eighteenth Ward Market-house, over $250,000
have been stolen, but exactly what became of
the money ls not stated. The Tribune says
that. In 1865, the Legislature appropriated
$75,000 for. the construction of the building,
which sum was offered to the contractor, who
undertook the job, but afterwards received
$387,000 lor the work. How much of thia
amount was fraudulently drawn from the t reas
ury:remalns to be seen. '__

for obtaining information interesting to agri?
culturists. Several new features have receutly
been Introduced by General Myer, the chief
signal officer, among them the appearance.or.
the sunset, which is obtained , by means of a:
convex mirror, the colors -and shades being
traced with pastels on a plane of glass placed
above the mirror. In this manner the appear?
ance and torras of clouds are also noted with
correctness and facility. The visitor Is Inter?

and their movements under certain conditions
of the atmosphere, the materials employed
for this purpose being merely ?vire and raw
cotton. Every branch of the office is under
strict discipline, and all engaged la Ita admin?
istration seem to be influenced by a desire to
further promote its usefulness.
-Senator Sumner has . written a letter ad?
dressed to-PresidentA. D.; "White, ex-Santo .
Domingo-commissioner, In which he says that,
he is surprised by Air. White's statement that
he had misreprf.-^nted the facts with regard to
Frederick Douglass. Mr. Sumner repeats
that his allusion was to the exclusion of Mr.
Douglass from th? common table of the mall
packet, which exclusion be rebuked, and thar,
he said that President Grant carefully omitted
Douglas?, who was In Washington at the time,
from the dinner to ihe commissioners, and 1
thus repeated Ihe lodignlly. Mr. Sumner
quotes the statements of A. M. Green and
James Wormley (colored) to show that Doug?
lass complained of the neglect, and felt it
keenly. Mr. Sumner adda that Douglass at his
house said that he fell the President's neglect,
which was less excusable, as he had gone lo
San Domingo at the express invitation ot thc
President, and on his return was insulted on
board the Potomac mail, packet, and that, an
Investigation by the President would have
been a proper rebuke to those who had in
sui tod him.
-The Yokoboma Herald, describing a re?
cent Japanese festival, says : "The second
day was occupied with exhibitions of the in?
genious tlayllght fireworks, ol Hie manufac?
ture of which the Japanese appear to be Hie
sole masters. As usual these consisted most ly
of bombs, which, exploding hl.?h in the air,
discharged sometimes various colored jets ol'
smoke, and sometimes closely folded packages
of wire and paper, which unfolded themselves
into'parachutes of great bulk and symmetrical
design. They were sometimes Ash, which
swam leisurely through the atmosphere to ihe
ground; or snake?, which writhed themselves
away over the tree-tops; or great birds, that
hovered kite-like and motionless for an In?
credible long time. Occasionally they took
the shape o? cottages, temples, human beings,
magnified crests of daimlos, trees und flow?
ers-almost anything lhat a lively imagination
could suggest. The smoke figures, however,
were the most amusing. One of Ihe most fre?
quently attempted was a cuttle fish, with n
body of thick fuliginous black, and arms ot
lighter hues. Of course the Illusion was very
brief, the wind not allowing the smoke to re?
main undisturbed for more than a few seconds;
bnt while it lasted lt was perfect."
-It ls singular how soon goodness and gen?
tleness and womanly devotion are recognised
by the English people in any of the members
of thc royal family, and what almost personal
interest they seem to take in those who thus
make examples to the whole people, and
whose Influence through such devotion is felt
In the meanest hamlet in tho land. The espe?
cial Idol of the populace ls, at present, the
Princess Alexandra. Not even the Queen
evokes such enthusiasm when ?he appears in
public. And from all account*, in her mod?
esty aDd pure womanliness this "Sea
King's daughter from over the eea" de?
serves all the admiration, all the praise that
li io freely given her. She was present
nt the recent marriage in London of Miss
Fox. From one description wo extract a few
HneB just to show what ls thought and said of
her, and th? spirit In which it ls thought and
said: "These years of English living, of Eng?
lish maternity, and of English royal sorrow,
have not given lier one trait that is English.
Ontline, attitude, movement and expression
are as much opposed to the characteristics ot
this insular nation as spirit is oppoaed lo mat?
ter. Gravity seems to forget ils laws for her;
she Feeras poised rather than posed, and her
movements aro a3 light and elastic as though
she treadH upon air. Her face bears an ex?
pression of Just ihe gentlest eagerness. just(
enough to suggest that she knows lhere are
better things to be had, without furnishing
ihe Rlightest trace ol discontent with what
Rho has attained. Everything about her ls ex?
quisite, yet. outside of all there is something
that seems to try lo bide the excellence, or
suppress ils effect."
Strike While the Iron's Hut.
An appeal comes from Columbia for the
taxpayers of Charleston to assisi in Ihe her?
culean labor that luis already been com?
menced in thc courts of cleansing the
Augean stables of Slate Finances. It is like
the cry of the early Christians, "come over
"into Macedonia and help U3;*' and to such
demands for help tho citizens of Charleston,
with their oft-proved public spirit and their
immense pecuniary stake in ihe matters nt
issue, are not likely to be careless or unre?
sponsive. It is not ihe first lime that ihe
attempt has been made to raise money to
enforce through legal processes an account
of their stewardship from the unfaithful offi?
cials of the State, and it is unnecessary uow
to inquire why the attempt by the executive
committee of the Taxpayers' Convention,
lost winter, failed of success. It is enough
lo say, and not too much to claim, that the
people of Charleston have always been will?
ing to co-operate with uny other earnest
movers in this matter, and to lend to the cause
their powerful aid with all zeal and liberality,
although they may not have been ready lo
initiate such a movement without the moral
and material support of their fellow-suiler
.ers, orto bear the brunt and Ihe labor un?
aided and alone.
Now, however, everything seems ripo for
actiou. Not only bas the public sentiment
against thc Ring thieves been vastly extend?
ed and deepened throughout both political
j parlies in the State 'and country, but the
most convincing evidences of fraud have
lately been laid bare by means of the internal
war within the Riog itself-by m^ans of Ihe
rival greed for office on the part of its mern h e rs j
overpowering the hitherto "cohesive power
"of public plunder," and it should not be
difficult now to secure Ihe conviction of the
guilty parties, and such an exposition of
their crimes as will drive them ia disgrace
The skirmish fire hos begun and is hotly |
maintained; the action must soon become
general alODg the line. Will not Charles
tonians contribute their fair quota or the
sinews of war? And as a practical method
of making and applying the collection of
funds, will noi the resident members of the
taxpayers' executive committee, or some
public-spiritel private citizens, designate
some bank or office as the place for Ihe re?
ception ot such contributions as may oller ?
Ttae Next Election.
The State of West Virgiuia holds an elec?
tion on the 22 i of August. It will be diffi?
cult, probably, to draw from the result any
valuable inference of ibo strength of the Re?
publican or the Liberal and Democratic
party in that region, for the issues are en?
tirely local, and neither the Grant Republi?
cans nor the Liberals have made any nomi?
nations for State officers. The principal
issue is the acceptance or rejection of a new
constitution, proposed by the convention
which met at Charleston last January. This
instrument makes no radical change in the
organic law, and contains no provisions of
a partisan character; but there is a section,
to be voled on separately, which excludes
colored men from office. There is no pro
babllity of this section being carried. The
Democrats asa body favor tho new consti?
tution; the Republicans as a body oppose it;
but this division will not be strictly observ?
ed, and the vote will be governed in a great
measure by local and class interests. The
new constitution, however, provides for a
new set of Stale officers, and changes the
Lime of holding the general election from Oc?
tober to August; so that a governor aDd
other functionaries will be chosen on the
22d, to take office ID case Ihe constitution
should be adopted, while ir it be rejected the
present incumbents wi.l hold over. Three
Congressmen are likewise to be voted for j
provisionally. If the constitution fail, their [
election will be void, and they must run
again ia October. Thus it will be seen that
there is a prospect of abundant local excite?
ment, though the issues have little signifi?
cance to the rest of Ihe Union.
The Grant Republican Convention, which
mei, nt Grafton on the 23d of May and chose
delegates to Philadelphia, passed a r?solu- j
lion refusing lo recognize the new cons ti tu- ?
lion as a party question, and adjourned
without making any nominations for State
officers. The Democratic Convention as?
sembled at Parkersburg, May 30, approved
the new constitution, and nominated for
Governor Mr. Johnson N. Camden. Soon
afterward the present incumbent, Governor
John J. Jacob, a Democrat, and an un sue
cessful aspirant for renomination, organized
a bolt and entered the field as an indepen?
dent Democratic candidate. Since then a
curious variety of combinations have been
made for the purpose of concentrating upon
Jacob the whole Republican and a part of |
tho Democratic vote. No fewer than four,
and we believe five, independent tickets have
been nominated, each with Jacob's, name at
the head, and all manner of Dames for the
hedy and the tail. There are straight Grant i
Republican tickets with Jacob; straight j
Confederate Bourbon tickets with Jacob;
eclectic tickets wilh Jacob; Greeley tickets
with Jacob; moderate Democratic tickets
with Jacob. Moreover, there are secret bar?
gains with friends and foes of tho Conven?
tion, and such a dickering of August votes
against possible October votes that all cal?
culations based upon the relative strength of
parties are utterly futile. Ic is certaiu that
Jacob will get the entire Grunt Republican
vote; the Liberal Republicans will sustain
Camden; the result dependB upon the ex?
tent to which Jacob may be able to divide
the Democrats. The nominations for Con?
gress are Dot complete. In respect to them
there is an additional complication, as the
State bas been redistricted.
While the August election has therefore
little political significance outside tho State,
a Liberal victory in West Virginia in Novem?
ber is almost beyond questiou. At Hie elec?
tion for Governor in 1870, Jacob (Dem.) wai
chosen by a majority of 2,150 over his .Re?
publican competitor, Wm. E. Stevenson;
und at the vole for or against tho Constitu?
tional Convention in 1871 the majority for
the convention was 2,851, the Republicans
generally going against it. The present
delegation in Congress consists of two Dem?
ocrats and one Republican, and their major?
ities in 1870 were: First District (Dem.)
1,061, Second District (Rep.) 13, Third Dis?
trict (Dem.) 1,793.
Governor Scott Pleads Utility.
We print in anoLher column a letter from
Governor Scott in reply to the letter of Sec?
retary Cardozo published a few days ago.
It is a plain confession of guilt, and so the
people must regard it. Whether Scott is a
liar or Cardozo is a liar, or whether both are
liars, mattera very little. We trust none oj
them. And wc are sorry to see that there is
a disposition abroad to whitewash Cardozo,
because of his death-bed repentance; a dole?
ful Peccavi! when all the harm is done.
The one thing to slrive for is the rejection of
the fraudulent issues, and the punishment of
Ibe thieves. Press them to th? wall I
Tile Prosecution Fand.
Nearly four hundred dollars have '?en
subscribed io Columbia to the prosecuting
fund, and the amount can be easily doubled
or trebled if other places show that they are
in sympathy with an immediate onslaught
upon the Ring. Charleston should move,
and move at once. One or two thousand
dollars from Charleston would enable our
friends to push things vigorously. Let ns
not wait for Greeley and Brown :
"Who would be free,
Themselves must strike the blow 1"
Tile New Mosca.
There is danger that F. J. Moses will be
overlooked while war is waged upon the
Financial Board. Moses is sneaking ahead,
and, as Governor, he would be more dan.
gerous than Scott, Parker and Neugie com?
bined. It is truo that he is only charged
with a theft or misappropriation of a million
dollars, but, considering Iiis opportunities,
this is a bigger swindle than the six million
of Conversion bonds. Keep an eye on
Kill or Care :
We wish that the Hon. Charles Sumner,
United Slates Senator from Massachusetts,
could be persuaded to "take the stump" for
Greeley in the low-country of South Caro,
lina. Why? Only because, if be did not
cure the negroes, the negroes would cure
.fi ii a nani.
