COLUMBIA, 8. C., Friday, November 9.
Tbe board of State canvassers met at ten
o'clock this morning;, and Mr. Leroy Youraana,
counsel for C. C. Bowen, made a motion,
which be supported by elaborate argument,
that the protest ol E. W. M. Mackey, ol
Charleston, be thrown out from the consider?
ation of the board, upon the ground that lt
had not been regularly flied, and was Insuf?
ficient for want of proper notice. Mr. C. D.
Melton, of this city, counsel for Mackey, op?
posed the motion.
The board retired and considered the mat.
ter, and upon re-entering, decided not to
grant the motion of Mr. Youmans, and no ti?
tled both parties that, the case would be taken
np next Friday, at which time both parties
would be required to snbmlt all the evidence
In their cases.
The protest of Mackey charges intimidation
and violence at several polls, and other irreg?
ularities at other places. Bowen looks some-1
what down in the month regarding bis case,
while Mackey is very cheerful. The con test ls j

ANDERSON C. H., November 6.
It ia impossible to iorm a correct idea as to
which electoral ticket carried Anderson
County yesterday. The negroes have voted
. more generally than the whites, I think, from
present indications. The election was quiet
and orderly et this place, and throughout the
county, so feras I have beard from the county
precincts. Yery little Interest was manifested
in the election, and the number remaining
away from the polls will embrace more than
one-third of the entire county, principally
whites. Betums have been received from
Anderson Courthouse, Pendleton, Sandy
Springs, Belton and Honea Path, showing an
aggregate vote at these five boxes of 1266
voles, ol" which the Grant ticket received 712
md the Greeley ticket 554 votes. The O'Con
or ticket did not receive a vote at this place,
although printed tickets were supplied abun?
dantly. The name of Thomas J. Mackey was
stricken from thirty-three Grant tickets at this

away from tbe polls.
SPABTANBURG, November 6.
Only about five boxes in this county have
been, so tar, heard from. They give the Grant
ticket a small majority. From the calculations
made, there will not be more tban 2500 votes
polled in the connty, and it is supposed tbat
they will give the Greeley ticket a small
majority. No interest whatever was mani?
fested in the matter except by a few leading
Republicans and persons of color; all was
quiet, and no disturbance of any kind bas yet
been beard ot. I will report more fully to?

TORKVILLE, November 6.
ibo election in this county passed off very

SKETCHES OF THE EXODUS EROTH THE
German Kindness Displayed In Vain.
[Nev York Herald Letter.]
Toe city of Uetz ia Its brightest days must
have been aa unlucky town, smothered over
with Torts and ditches and all the elaborate
mechanism of engineering art. Tbe great
Vauban accomplished these results in Louis I
XIV.'s days, when that King was doing a little j
royal stealing on bis own account and was
anxious to protect bis acquisition. Within a
few miles o? its gates the great battl e of Grave
lotte was fought, wbere Prussia burst the
French army asunder, driving one fragment
under Bazaine Into Uetz, to starvation and
surrender ; tbe other fragment under Marshal j
McMahon, Into Bedan, to surrender with I
its Emperor at the head. Gravelotte look?
very calm and fruitful this autumn morning,
and shows no trace of the gigantic strife of
two years ago. The fields are giving forth
corn and hops and vines, and tbe merry laugh I
of the harvesters is beard where the cannon I
I sounded upon tbat dreadful day. As your cor
respondent passed down the road along which
the King of Prussia advanced, looking out
over the rolling, hilly plain, thinking bis own
thoughts, there came a group which would
have oeen made luto a picture by the pencil
ot Tenlers. A donkey, with a ribbon or two
around bis neck by way ol encouragement,
was doggedly pulling a small rude care. This
was heaped with baskets of ripe.grapes. In
one corner, cunningly protected from seli-de-1
structlon by an ingenious arrangement of j
baskets, was a wide-awake Infant, just old
enough to stand, not knowing wbat the
'demonstrations meant, and its eyes firmly I
fixed on Its ' mother, who came plodding
behind, clapping her hands and chanting
nursery rhymes. An old man, with his
staff, marshalled the group with grave j
aspect, thinking, no. doubt, o^asadderl
things than grapes and win?P*Then
came a straggling procession of boys aud
girls-the boys from twelve to five-with rud
dy, dirty laces smeared with grape Juice. They
were shouting, laughing, hurrying borne to
evening rest with their harvest burdens. The I
Joung men had gone. The head of the tarn,ly
ad gone. The vintage oould only be gather
ed by women and children. The old men and
the children only remained. This was a first
glimpse of tbe new aspect of affdrs in Alsace
and Lorraine, and lt seemed odd that this tro-1
pby of German rule should make Itself mani- j
fest on tbe victorious field o? Gravelotte.
Now and then we met a group ot eager,
si riding youths marching toward the frontier I
or to some railway station-youths and mid?
dle-aged men, occasionally women In the
train with children In their arms, anxious tor
France, and we thought of what Byron wrote
of those wanderers of Israel wben they were
driven out of the Holy Land
And we must wander witheringly,
in other lands to die- I
And where our fathers'ashej be
Oar own can never lie.
METZ IN DECAY.
As I have said, Metz could never at best
have been a lovely town, and lt ls to-day a I
ploture of shabbiness and despair. In other I
days lt lived on its garrison. It had military I
scnooiH, and a large ll not pleasing variety
of peddlers and sutlers anet tradesmen ol
many nations. Many were Hebrews, who
were the first to go, for the exodus began
shortly after tbe German occupation. Tbe
Germans patronized their own people, and
had no occasion tor French Butlers and ped-1
dlers from tbe Orient. When the period came
for decision between France and Prussia Metz
gave way In a panlo, and thous inda swarmed
out of its' gateB. At least two-thirds of the
Inhabitants have gone, and Melz looks ns li
smitten with a pestilence-a sort of a city
laid out in state for funeral, and a Prussian
army as guard of honor over the remains. I
In addition to tbe ordinary passenger trains
running to Nancy, during tbe last few days
ot September, five extra trains Ielt tbe
city dally wltb lmlgrating inhabitants.
The scenes In the raliway depot
showed all the crowding, anxiety and
disturbance ol Lord Mayor?a Day in London,
or a Fourth of July fireworks in City Hall
Park, A railway officer Informed your cor?
respondent tbat on one day five tbonsand lett
from his depot alone. They have swept over
the country to Nancy, Lu ne vi ile, Com mercy,
Lyons-some to Rheims aad Epe may to find I
work In tbe champagne harvest-many to
Paris. In cities where the Prussians were in
occupation they would not permit the exiles
to remain, etipeclally the young men fit for
duty in the army, but drove them on beyond
their lines. With these they were always Be
vere. But tbe young men, upon accepting the
option for Germany, would be compelled to
enter the Prussian . army. So they left for
France. In one commune where lhere were
seventeen young men, only two remained;
of these two one was 111 and the other bad no
means of leaving. And from every quarter,
without any exception-except, perhaps, a
lew communes near the Rhine-your corres-1
pendents bring corroborating reports. From
thirty alone tbey estimate the number who
have departed as fifty thousand souls.
KS VE LR Y AND FEASTING.
When you are Informed that Metz ls "lit-1
'orally deserted," It ls difficult to make you feel I
how exactly true the phrase ls. The Rue des
Jardins, for Instance, which boasted forty I
stores, has five or six open. It is estimated
that two stores out of three In tbe whole town
are closed. Most of the open stores sell to-1
bacco and Bremen olgars; tbe old cafes are
German beer saloons. Some of the open
stores Inform you tbat they are "selling out
to close business," and wherever you look
you see houses for sale or to let. And yet,
as If, in Ironical comment upon the events ot
the day, there was a great Joy In Metz the eve-1
nlng your correspondent was there. It was I
an anniversary of something, and the Ger
man garrison were celebrating lt in a grand
banquet. While the conquered were hurrying
to the frontier the conquerors were c?l?br?t
lng themselves with eating and feasting and
THE PRUSSIANS COMPLAIN OF BAD FAITH. I
One circumstance that fills the Prussian mind
with anger Is that most of those who have I
left Metz, especially (rom the farm landa
around, have been In receipt of large Bums ot
money irom the Prussian treasury. The war, I
Gravelotte and other transactions of that
nature desolated the country aud swept,
away all living tb lu gs- crops and grain and
homestead and all means of life. And Prussia,
meaning to be kind to tbe sufferers andrecon
elle them to the new rule, paid them large in?
demnities. In some cases more money was
paid than the farmer had ever seen before;
more than his whole farm was worth. These
simple-minded agriculturalist took the hnneet
King's money and immediately declared for I
France. The thought, therefore, that Prussia
IB really paying the ex pences of a good part 011
the emigration, that the ungrateiul French?
men are really crossing into France with the
King's money in their pockets, give the Pick-1
elhaubers deep anger, and may account for
their rudeness to tbe exiles. " They lake the
Kaiser's money says the Pickelhauber rueful
ly, "and then run away." "Yes," says the I
Frenchman "why don't you let us stay ? We
want to stay and be Frenchmen. Look at
Paris. All the Germans who left there during
the war to fight France are returning, and we
don't say either be Frenchmen or leave Paris.
They stay and become rich; and yet we are
not allowed to remain here where we were
born without telling a lie and sayiog we are I
Germans. How is that ?" "Ob, that," says
Pickelhaube!',1' is quite a different matter."
PRUSSIAN" FIRMNESS AND KINDNESS.
So far as carpenters and painters and cnn-1
ning workmen can go, Strasbourg and Metz
and all Alsatian lownsare thoroughly changed.
You walk through Strasbourg and you find
every corner has a new sign, certifying In the
German tongue the street bas a new name. In
some side streets the old French names re?
main; but nearly every corner bas fresh glar?
ing German signs In large blue letters. The
railways have German Bigns, telling you where
to eat, where to walt and where to deliver and
obtain your baggage. The cabmen are much
distressed about this, one of them explaining,
not without profanity, that he did not know
bia bead from his heels since the new signs
were put up. But in all matters of ad minis-1
tratlon, so lar as the army ls concerned, the J
people have been treated with kindness and
generosity. The Pruasian officer, in any view j
you may take of bim, is not wbat would be re
garded as a model lather-ln-iaw. He would
raiher be Insolent than not, if you give bim
occasion. But In Alsace the officers seem to
belong to an amiable race. The orders from
Berlin are to "win the people, back to the
Fatherland," and so the Alsatians are In the
strange attltnde of receiving good gifts and
spurning the givers. All who have lost monev
in the bombardment have been weil paid I
am sorry to Bay that many of them as soon as
they received their money declared for France
and left for Paris to become martyrs on the'
Boulevards. The Prussian only shows his
Prussian nature in dealing with the emigrants.
There is no doubt that great brutality has been
shown to those Alsatians wbo declared for
France and emigrated. They were ill UBed at
the railway statfon.crammed Into lnlerlorcare,
and every discomfort heaped upon them'
Apart from this, tbe Prussian rule in Stras?
bourg and throughout Alsace has been as kind
as ever the French was-far kinder than you
will find lt In Germany.
THE DELINQUENT L Amt SALES.
An Important Declion.
SAMUEL JENKINS VS. WM. M'ALLISTER- BEFORE
JUDOS WRIGHT, AT CHAMBERS -OPINION.
It appears that the plaintiff In this case was
the owner of a certain lot' of land, with ap
purtenances, situate on the northwest corner
of Washington and Gadsden streets, in the
City of Columbia, In the County of Bichland.
That, under the provisions ot an act of the
General Assembly, entitled "An act providing
for the assessment and taxation ol properly "
passed September 16. 1868, and all acts amen-1
datary tHereto, the said desoribed property of
plaintiff was sold by the treasurer of Blchlacd
County, at a delinquent land sale on the 7th
day ol June, 1872, for the unpaid taxes of the
year 1870, William McAllister, the defendant
in this case, being the purchaser of the said
I" ti fi I CSt?lt??
The plaintiff first complains : That a tax exe?
cution lo the hands of a deputy, for taxes as?
sessed against him 1er the year 1870, which be
believed Included the whole tax for that year,
and satisfied, did not contain the taxes assess- j
ed against him lor his said real estate tor the
The plaintiff complains secondly : Tbat on
the 20tn day of May, 1872, he satisfied a tax
execution for taxes assessed against bim for
the said real estate for the year 1871: and that
at that time he was informed ano believed
that no other tax was due or delinquent on
the said real estate. And piaintlfi further
claima t That subsequent to the purchase of j
said real eBtate by the defendant, (William
McAllister,) made an agreement with bim
(plaintiff) that the defendant would relinquish
ail right and title to the said real estate, on
being paid the amount of purchase money and
the Interest thereon; and that un the 28th day
ol August, 1872, and at divers times before
tbat dale, plaintiff tendered tbe defendant the
whole amount of purchase money with Inter?
est thereon, which amount respondent refus?
ed and threatened to perfect the title to the'
said real estate In bis own name.
The plaintiff further complains that he bas
been rel used the rlgbt of re de mp tl an Of tbe
If tho plaintiff was misinformed ag to the
tejces upon the said property at the time that
he satisfied the execution lor tbe taxes asses- j
sed against bim for the year 1871, he certainly
had notice ol the fact of such misunderstand?
ing by the advertisements o? the county audi?
tor of tlie said delinquent land, as the auditor
of each county ls required hy law to make
such advertisement for a certain length of
time previous to the tUy of ?ate. Also when
the plaintiff made the agreement he claims he
did with the d?tendant, and which agreement
ie not denied by defendant, lt shows that he
(the plaintiff) was aware of the fact that some?
thing was requisite for bim to do In order that I
he might retain the title to said real estate.
As to the tender ot the amount of purchase
money and interest thereon by the plaintiff to
defendant as alleged by plaintiff and denied
by defendant ls an Issue ol fact to be deter?
mined elsewhere. It ls claimed by plaintiff |
that by the act of the General Assembly pass?
ed March 12tb, 1872, entitled "An act to
amend an act entitled an act providing for the
assessment and taxation of property,^ passed
September loth, 1868, and all acis amendatory
thereto, under which the said property was
sold, that he has the right of redemption.
The right lo have a certain length of lime
in which to redeem real estate sold for taxes
ls one which ls sacred, dear and highly cher?
ished by every property holder; therefore a
liberal construction should be given to ali
statutes touching that right. The net cf tbe
General Assembly passed September 15th,
1888, "providing for the assessment and taxa?
tion of properly," waB amended by au act of I
the General Assembly passed March 12th, 1872,
already referred to. The lMth section ol the act
of September 15th, 1868, allowed a certain
length of time before a deed could be given to
the purohaser of lands at any delinquent land
That section is as follows:
"No deed shall be made tor any real estate
sold at delinquent land sale until the expira?
tion ol two years from and after such sale,
nor shall anv survey thereof required by any
certificate of purchase be made until the expi?
ration of the same period of time."
Section 116, which refers to the right of re?
demption, is as follows:
"All real estate which has been or may
lierealter be sold for taxes, assessment and
penalties at delinquent sales under the laws
of this State, may be redeemed at any time
within two years from and after such sale, and
all real estate belonging at tbe time pf such
sale to minors, Insane persons, ' married
women or persons in confinement, may be
redeemed at any time within two years from
and after the expiration of such disabilities."
It will be perceived by section 114 that no
deed was to be made "for any real estate sold
at delinquent land sale until the expiration of
two years," and by section 116 of the same act
that land sold at any such delinquent sale
might "be redeemed at any time within two
years from and after such sale." Therefore, lt
is clear tbat wheo land was sold ai any such
delinquent land sale, such land might be re?
deemed any time within two years, or bet?re
the deed cf conveyance was made to the pur?
chaser; but after the two years had expired tbe
purchaser was entitled to the deed as tbe title
passed to the purchaser, and there could be
The said section of the act of Assembly of
September 16, 1868, was amended by the act
of Assembly of Match 12, 1872, (acts of A.
1871-72. p. 163) section 114, was amended "by
striking out the words 'two years,' and insert?
ing in lieu thereol the words'ninety days."'
Thereby declaring that "no deed should be
made for real estate sold at delinquent land
sale until the expiration of 'ninety days,' sec
lion 116, which defines the limit ol tne time
for redemption as striking ont the words 'two
years"' wherever the same appears therein,
and inserting In lieu thereof "ninety days."
Section 117, which defines the mode of re?
de motion, and requires persons desiring to re?
deem, to commence action within a certain
time; such action, by the said section of the
act, was to be commenced "within one year
after the date thereof, or within one year alter
the expiration of the disabilities named in the
preceding section" (section 116.) This sec?
tion was amended by striking out the words
"one year" wherever the same appeared there?
in, and inserting in lieu thereof "thirty days;"
and by striking out the words "two years"
wherever the same appeals therein, and in?
serting the words "ninety dayB" In lieu there?
of. Therefore, if a person whose real estate
bas been sold for delinquent taxes since the
passage of the act ot March 12th, 1S72, wishes
to redeem such such real estate, such person
must commence action for Buch redemption
within thirty days irom the lime ol sale, or
from ibe time of the removal of such disabili?

Section 4 of the act of Assembly of March

1871 should be sold at Ihe sale therein men?
tioned, "and conveyed in fee simple, without
the equity of redemption," ls to be construed
with the other portion of that act, and Hie
words "conveyed In lee simple, without the

that, after the expiration of "ninety days," a

The question as to the validity ol the act o?
the General Assembly, of March 12tb, 1872,
has not been raised in sucb a manner as to
warrant me In passing upon U* I think lt is
enough to say lo this case, that when a con?
tract ls made by the State with its citizens
relative to their taxes, such taxes being due
and unpaid at the time of the making ot such
contractor becoming due during the exis?
tence of the same, and stipulates that when
taxeB on real estate become due under lt, such
real estate shall be sold for such taxes, and
the person or persons owning such real estate
shall have two years after sale In whloh to re?
deem lt, the State Is bound by every rule that
governs a pure, Just and enlightened con?
science In an Individual, to carry outsuoh con?
tract in letter and In spirit.
The plaintiff asks that the said delinquent
land sale be declared void and set aside for
Irregularities In the said sale. If there have
been irregularities in tho said sale, such
Irregularities are also facts to be determined

the parties may take 3uch course in law as he
may be advised, and this opinion with accom?

A GROWL FROM TUE LIOS.
The British Minister Trikes up the Case
of Dr. Brattan, Whose Sureties are
Immediately Released toy the United
WASHINGTON, November 8.
The British minister has called the attention
or the secretary of State to the case ot Dr.
Rufus Bratton, a citizen of South Carolina,
who was forcibly abducted from Canada last
spring, by an American deteotive named
Hester, assisted by a Canadian officer named
Cromwell. Cromwell, lt will be remembered,
was recently sentenced to three years' im?
prisonment for this act; tho principal witness
being Dr. Bratton. It was not supposed tbat
any further mention would be made in this
case, but lt appears that E ration was released
by the United States authorities on ball, and
not returning to South Carolina, the securities
were Informed that the ball bond would be
forfeited If Bratton did not return. He there?
upon appealed to the Srlti-h Government for
protection. The British minister, under In?
structions from the Home Government, re?
minds the Secretary ol State that her Majesty'*
Government does not tolerate interference
with her laws, and that the proceedings against
Bratton, having followed his abduction (rom
British territory, must be cancelled. Tbe
Attorney General has therefore Instructed
U. S. District Attorney Farrow (Corbin ?) at I
Charleston to dismiss the ball bond and dis
charge the sureties of Bratten, and to place
the proceedings against bim, as far as practi?
cable, In the same position as before his ford- j
ble abduction from Canaca.

THE PEHOOF MURDER.
Farther Particulars-Whisky to Blame
On Thursday night last, Henry Peboof was
stabbed and killed by Montgomery Bishop.
Tne murder occurred In front of the dwelling
of the murdered man, In the northern part of
Sparianourg County. The particulars of the
sad affair, aa lar as we have heard them, are
briefly these: Mr. Pelioof was at the camp of a
wagoner, who had stopped in iront ol his
house, and while thtire Montgomery Bishop,
with two others, cume down the road and
stopped at the camp. Bishop was drunk. He
struck a little grandoon of Pehoof s, who was
oresent, and threatened him with further
violence, when Mr. Pehoof did or said some?
thing which caused Bishop to stab bim in the
lelt breast, from wh'ch he died lu a lew min?
utes. Mr. Pehoof waa sober aod, according to
the Information wu have received, was at?
tempting to prevent Bishop from Injuring his
little grandson. They were on good terms
with each other, and the sad occurrence, like
four-fifths ot the murders that occur in the
land, is to be attributed alone to whiskey. Mr.
Peboof was about sixty years of age, au honest,
industrious and highly respected citizen, and
his untimely death is deeply regretted by all
who know bim. Bishop made his escape and
1B yet at large.
