yon met on the train,
And you really believe she would know YOU If

"Of course," he replied, .'she would know me;
there never was womankind yet

"Then yon told her your love?" asked the elder;
the younger looked up with a smile,

"What, sit by the side of a woman as fAlr as the \

And look somewnere else lest the dazzle flash

"No, 1 hold that the speech of the tongue be as
frank and as bold as the look,
And I held up herself to herself,-that was more

"Young blood !" laughed the elder; "no doubt

TREASURER PARKER'S RESPONSE.
Cardoso False or F\u "etfui.
OFFICS: OF STATE TREASURER,
COLUMBIA, S. C., August 12. 1872.
Hon. F. L. Cardozo, Secretary of State :
SIR-Your extraordinary letter of August
6th, addressed to your attorneys, Messrs. Mel?
ton & Corbin, relative to your connection with
the financial transactions of the State, and a
treatise upon constitutional law, ?fcc, <fco., ls
before me. I will reply briefly to that portion
ot lt devoted to myself.
First. You say that In November, 1870,1
(you) began to suspect that the conversion
bonds that had been sealed my me (you) were
not being used for the purpose lor which they
My only reply to this weak and absurd state?
ment is that there never was a conversion
bond sealed by.you that you did not know for
what purpose lt was sealed, or might have
known had you desired to do so. If you did
not know, lt was your own fault; the proof oi
which la ample.
Second. Concerning the sterling bonds au?
thorized by ace ot the General Assembly, ses?
sion of 1870-71, you have made so many ridi?
culous assertions, unsubstantiated by a single
line of the testimony, that I pronounce all you
have written upon the subject, except upon
two points, aa pure invention, and leave the
public.to Judge of your motives.
Upon tue two points relerred to, I have
only to say, to the fl rat statement, "that you
sealed $3,600,000, and refused to seal any
more," the first part, viz: that you sealed
$3,500,000, is correct; the other part of the
statement is false, as you were never asked to j
seal any more, as they were never taken from
the American Bank Note Company for signa?
ture or sealing. This does not rest upon my
statement alone; there ls prout of the' fact,
which I will furnish lt you are bold enough to
The second statement "that the treasurer or
Financial Board meant to hypothecate the en- j
tire $6,000,000 of these bonds as late as March
last, without the knowledge of the Sterling
Fund Board, and were only prevented from
doing so by the timely repeal of the oct. and
cancellation of the bonds by authority of the
Legislature;n so far as I am concerned, both
as treasurer and member of the Financial
Board, I pronounce the same to be false, and
fdr proof of my assertion I refer to Governor
Scott and Attorney-General Chamberlain as
evidence. I will add, furthermore, that all
these bonds were tn my possession, in charge
of the American Bank Note Company In New
"fork, lrom the date of their preparation, after
they had received the seal of the State, until
Just before the General Assembly adjourned in
March last, and that at no time did I contem?
plate the negotiation or sale of them in any
manner whatsoever, nor did I or the Financial
Board attempt to do so. I dely proof to the
contrary, and charge you with either entire j
forgetfulness or a wilful perversion of the
* In regard to your statements relative to seal?
ing bonds In the month of October. 1871, and
following down to the period ol the passage
of tho validating act; so far BB lt relat?e to
conversations, purporting to have taken
place between you and myself, I have only to
say that I will not admit that there ls any
truth whatever In the words that you have
pat lo my m orr A. Bat it is immaterial to the
public what may have been said by you or my?
self upon the subject; acts and facts are what
the public want.
Yon declare with great apparent self-com
Elacency that since October 1st, 1871, you !
ave not sealed a single bond, though repeat -
I? edly requested to do so; to which I reply that
you have never refused to seal any bonds pre?
sented to you Bl nee that period, until those
DOW belonging to Messrs. Morton, Bliss & Co.
were presented, as I have bad on hand all the
bonds that I required for conversions already
sealed by you, and still bave some for that
purpose, but not a sufficient number to meet
the demand above alluded to.
You then so on to state wbat laoguage you
used to the State treasurer, and what he used
In reply In reference to the conversion and
disposition of bonds, all of which rests entire?
ly upon your statement, unsubstantiated by
evidence, andis unworthy of notice. Whether
I used the language you impute to me or not
ls of no consequence io the proper loterpreta
' tion of my acts, and no gentleman would have
dragged such Irrelevant matter before the pub?
lic. Common courtesy and the ordinary rules
governing official intercourse, if nothing more,
would have restrained any gentleman from
making public use of private conversation. But
I deny having said aoythlng you have charged
upon me in this connection.
You say next: ' That I (yon) have already
seajed sufficient bonds for all legitimate pur?
poses, * * * and that the amount oi l
$6,151,397 75 in bonds have been Illegally, I
(you) claim, issued." Te which I reply that
toe Legislature, by the passage of the act
known ta the "validating act," Bays :
"SEC. 1. Be it enacted by the Senate and
House of Representatives of the Slate of j
South Carolina, now met and sitting in Gene?
ral Assembly, and by the authority o? the
same: That the said bonds and obligations
issued in behalf of this State, as mentioned
and set forth io the report of the treasurer of |
.v this State to the -General Assembly, dated
October 318', 1871, were duly aud lawlully
Issued in conformity with the true intent and
meaning of the several acts of the General
Assembly hereinbefore set lorth by their re?
"Sec. 2. That the acts of the officers of this
State, authorized under the provisions of the
laws of this State, and of ibe several acts
hereinbefore referred to. to the extent of all
Issues of bonds or obligations enumerated and
set forth in the said report of the treasurer,
be and are hereby in all things ratified, con?
firmed and established.
"Ssc' 3.' That each and all the bonds named
in said annnal report ot the treasurer ot this
State for the fiscal year ending with October
31, 1871, be, and the same are hereby, de?
clared to be lAgal and valid bonds of the State
of South Carotina, for the payment of which
the faith, credit and funds of the State have
been, and are hereby, pledged : Provided,
That no bonds be included which are not re?
gistered In the treasury at the time of the pas?
sage of this act. as provided for In Section 14,
Article 9 of the Constitution, relating to finance,
II further says:
"Sic. 8. The Governor is hereby authorized
and required to sign all of the bonds named
la this act; the State treasurer Is authorized
and required to countersign the same, and the
secretary of the State is authorized and re- j
quired to affix toe seal ot the State to tbe same
without delay: Provided, That no bonds shall
be signed by the Governor, nor countersigned
by the State treasurer, except for the conver?
sion of bonds or Btocks already Issued pur?
suant to law."
The bonds which you assert to have been
Illegally issued, therefore, are declared by the
foregoing sections to be duly and lawfully
Issued, in conformity with the true Intent and
meaning of the several acts of the General
Assembly. Perhaps the Legislature will be
considered, as good authority as yourself.
Your remarks upon the legal aspects ol the
case might as well have been left for your j
attorneys whom you h-vve employed to oon
duct lt, one of whom yi .urself said yon felt j
free to iniorm me gave lt as his opinion that
the courts would, If asked, require yon to seal
the bonds. The absurdity of addressing a let?
ter to your attorneys and parading before
them your opinion upon constitutional law
needs no comment.
The reason why you have acted against the
advice of your ablest counsel must be apparent
at this time to one at all acquainted with you
and your latest ambition.
I have only to add that T trust never In roy
public career to descend so low as to attempt
to elevate myself by blackmailing the reputa?
tion of others. Respectfully,
(Signed) NILES G. PARKEK.
CROPS IN THE STATE.
The Newberry Herald of the 15th says : ''We
have had copious showers during last week,
and the zone of rain has, as we are informed,
extended ever the whole county. The crops |
are promising. "
The Abbeville Medium says: "During the
past few days we have had a rellim of the op?
pressively hot weather. On Saturday various
sections of the district were favored with rain,
which !?t now generally needed. The crops
generally ar? looking well."
The Greenville Enterprise reports: "The
weather has not been so hot during the past
week, and, saving Thursday last, the days
have been comparatively cool; on that day the
thermometer reached ninety-four degrees.
Rain bas fallen in plenty. John A. Goodwyn,
Esq., and Dr. W. A. Mooney, from the upper
part el the county, say they do not remember
in their whole farming experience of amore
promising crop; and Rev. A. C. Stepp aud Dr.
J. M. bulli van give the same glowing account
of the corn and cotton in the lower end of
Greenville. A big crop, coupled with the
election of Greeley and Brown in the fall, will
give us an elysium."
The Sumter News, of the 15th, says: "The
rains have been excessive In some localities In
In this county, and, in consequence, rust and
caterpillars have made their appearance, doing
much damage to the crops. Mr. J. A. Ful
wood bas lost eight acres of rice, while his
pea crop has been destroyed and his corn seri?
ously Injured by the ravages of the latter.
Others In the same neighborhood have suffered
severely from the same catiae. A friend at
Mayes vii le wrote us, under date of Aus:'ist 0,
that his crop of colton had commenced ru
lng. and that army worms In numbers had ap?
peared in that community, but that up to the
time or that writing they had confined them?
selves lo the grass, and had not attacked the
crop of cotton or coro. The lookout ls gloomy
now for the planters. A week or two makes
great changes In their prospects."

THE RIDE ASTRIDE.
Failure of the Central Park Sensation.
The New Yotk World, of Monday, says:
"For some unknown reason the five young
ladles who last week announced their inten?
tion to ride astride their horses in Central
Park on Saturday failed to keep their engage?
ment with a public which BO far showed its
sympathy with their striving for a purer and
nobler womanhood as to turn out five thous?
and strong to cheer them In their undertak?
ing. It may be that stern parents absolutely
forbade this aodrogynapenthlppodrome, for
reasons readily understood by all who are
blessed with daughters; and, again, it
may be that when the moment for ac?
tion came the young ladies1 courage
forsook thom, and womanly timidity re- j
asserted Itself in their too ambitious breasts.
For lt ls a daring thing to take Mrs. Grundy
by the cap-strings in such a wildly hilarious
fashion as these young horsewomen proposed
lo do, and it way well bs. doubted that there
are five beaut.ss in the c.ly whose moral cour?
age or recklessness would be equal to so great
au undertaking. If the proposed reform in
'horsemanship' ls ever tibe made in New
York, lt will not do for those who propose to
bring it about to announce their intention in
such a way as to set crowds of gaping people
to see them at some particular place at a cer?
tain hour. We would advise our adventurous
young friends to practice the new fashion first
at a raclng-Bchooi, or in Borne seclui'.e 5 place,
and then, unannounced, to ride forth con?
quering and to conquer on the spur ot the mo?
Cloturing, tailoring, #c.
