A TRIP TO WASHINGTON.
The only other feature ol Interest In to?
day's proceedings (except, perhaps, the reso?
lution of both branches of the Assembly lo
adjourn next Wednesday, which appears, this
lime, to be a genuine thing,) has been the in?
troduction, by Representative Hurley, and
the adoption by the House, of the following
Whereas lt la understood to be 'he inten?
tion ot IIIB Excellency the preside ut of the
United States lo make a tour through the
S JIU hero Stales during the coming spring; and
whereas lt is the desire of the people ol South
Carolina lo accord to Ulm a reception worthy
of his blgh position and distinguished ser?
Resolved by the House of Representatives,
the Senate concurring, That a committee ol
-on the part ot mis House, and-on
tbe part o? the Senate, be appointed to ex?
tend to his Excellency an Invitation to visit
the State, and to make all arrangements thal
may be necessary in connection therewith.
It ls somewhat difficult to understand why a
committee should be seut to Washington to
ask the President to visit the Stale In the face
ot his expressed Intention to do so, but there
caa be no doubt that the member from
Charleston, who offered the resolution, has
good and sufficient motives for his action, and
that the committee (of which ol course Timo?
thy will be chairman) will cover itself with
GOOD-BYE TO TBE BOYS JOT BLUE.

HOMICIDE IN EDGEFIELD.
[From thu Augusta Chronicle.]
A negro named William Haywood was shot
on Sunday night In a cablu on Beech Island,
S. C., about two miles and a half from the
etty, and died the next day. The ball, it ls
said, entered the left side below the heart, tbe
weapon being so close that i be clothing was
burned by Hie powder. On Monday the coro*
ner empanelled a Jury In Hamburg, and held
an Inquest on the body at ihe place where the
shooting occurred. The verdict rendered was
to the effect that the deceased came to bis
death at the hands of some person unknowo
Aiterward, Barney M. Lamar, a while man,
was arrested cn suspicion of having shot Hay?
wood, as it wu? supposed lrom previous oc?
currences thal Lamar must bave felt that he
had good cause for shooting Haywood. As to
the main cause tf the difficulty, lu ri her than
above staled, we are not fully advised.
B. M. Lamar ls said to be well advanced In
years, und owns considerable properly in
Souib Carolina. Our informant did not state
when the examinai lon of the prisoner would

On Sunday night last, Mr. Barney M. Limar,
an old and well-known citizen ot Beech
Island, shot and instantly killed a negro man
named William J. Haywood. Oa tue follow?
ing day Mr. Lamar repaired to Aiken and
surrendered himself to Sneriff Jordan of thal
county. There being no jail as yet in Aiken,
Mr. Lamar was brought to this place to day

DEATH OF HON. JAMES A. NISBET.
[From the Mdcon Telegraph.]
We ure pained to announce the death ol
Hon. James A. Nisbet, which took place in
ibis city on the 18th Instant, after a protract?
ed Illness lrom an affection ol the Kings, from
which he has suffered lor about a year past.
Mr. Nisbet waB widely known In Georgia, and
we mav say throughout the country, as an
eminent lawyer in large practice-a very
euergeilc and public-spirited man-with a re?
markably clear and eminently practical
mind-a writer ot unusual force-a man
whose word was as good as his bond-whose
Integrity was beyond ali suspicion or ques?
tion-aud In all respects one of the most in?
fluential, valuable and exemplary citizens of
Georgia arid o? Macon. He was born In
Greene Counuy. in thia Stale, on the 9th day
of December, 1812-the fliih sou of Dr.
James Nisbet. He was graduated at the
Uuiversltv ol Georgia, and read law with his
distinguished brother, Hon. Eugenius A. Nis?
bet, and subsequently completed bis profes?
sional education at me law Behool ot Yale
College, Connecticut. He settled In Macon In
1834 or 1835, and soon alter married Frances
Rebecca, eldest daughter of Dr. John Wing?
field, of Madison, Ga. For about twenty years
be was tbe law partner ol Hon. Washington
Poe, and more recently was associated with
the law firm of Nisbet? and Nisbets & Jack?
son. He was one of the officers of tbe Macon
Volunteers, at the organization of that com?
pany; and, during his long residence in the
city, he has held the office of mayor and post?
master, and twice represented the county In
the General Assembly, overcoming, by bis
perfoeal popularity, each time, an adverse
??.?riv majority.? He waa one ot the leading
projectors of the Central and Southwestern
Railroads, and lor some lime a director In the
former company. He died in the communion
of the Presbyterian Church and in peace and
charity with all mankind, leaving behind him
an afflicted widow and lour children.
ALSACE ANS LORRAINE.
THE SUFFERINGS OF A CONQUERED
Scenes of the Emigration.
IQ the Revue dee Deux Mondes for Decem?
ber Is SQ exceedingly interesting, though sad,
narrative of the expatriation of tbe people of
Alsace and Lorraine in October. Though not
new as to the general statement, it contains
details and incidents still fresh, and not hith?
erto so fully related. The whole article is too
long tor our column?, but Its spirit ts preserved
and its essential facts given In the condensed
extracts whicb follow :
Since Prussia has now possessed Alsace and
a part of Lorraine for nearly two years, and
the time has arrived when she ls preparing
the official census of her new subjects, lt will
not be useless to a?k what her victory has
brought her, and what price she has paid.
The stones ol Metz and Strasbourg are hers; the
forte, the ramparts, the arsenals, the Immense
barracks, the msgnitlcent military establish?
ments are In her hands; but has ehe gained
the population to ber cause ? Do the BOU.s of
the people belong to her ? Facts alone can
answer this question; the simple recital of
what ls passing In the countries annexed will
suffice to enlighten Europe.
In the ancient departments of the Upper
Rhine, the Lower Rhine and the Moselle, the
Meuribe and the Vofges, suppressed or muti?
lated by the conquest, the date (bencelorward
historical) of the 1st October. 1872. will be
forever remembered. It was the last delay
allowed to the inhabitants in choosing be?
tween the French and Prussian nationality.
The government of Berlin had officially an?
nounced that alter this day all the French,
born or domiciled in Alsace or Lorraine, who
Bhould not have elected for France, shoud be
considered as German subjects. According
to the Instructions sent to the directors of
each "circle," the choice must be followed by
a veritable change of domicile.
Sixteen hundred thousand human beings
were then given the alternative of quitting
their Interests, their houses, their Heins, their
affair?, the graves of their relations, the
places they had Inhabited from infancy, and
where they hoped to die; or lo loose their
title of Frenchmen, to renounce their country
and their fl ig. Who can tell us what tears the
necessity of choosing between such great sac?
rifices ha? cost an Inoffensive population
won by to be iree and happy ?
Oo the eve of the 1st October lt was neces?
sary to decide whether to fly or stay. Many
had not waited till this last moment to tlx
th em se I ves ta France, but the majority of
those who had given In their carnea as her
adherents bad not hastened thither, their du?
lles, their affairs and necessities had detained
them In the place of their residence.
What was to be understood by the phrase
"veritable domicile," which every one was to
select in France, to make nts choice availa?
ble 1 Might lt not eunice to hire a chamber
on French territory, and then rellim after
Borne time ! At first the Prussian authorities
gave evasive answers, allowing the people to
suppose that great facilities would be granted
them. It was not till the last boura that it
was announced that all who remained
alter the morning of the drst ot Octo?
ber, even when they had given In a
public declaration of their choice of France,
should lose the benefit ot this declara?
tion and be declared German eubjecls.
This uews, which had been preceded by
more favorable rumors, produced a veri?
table panic in all ranks of society. The con?
tagion of flight became general: many who
bad not as yet decided did BO at once, and de?
parted without regulating their affairs, with?
out knowing whither they were going or
what would be their means of living, or their
asylum on the morrow. The same semi ment
animated all, rich and poor; inhabitants ol vil?
las len ttieii elegant monotone, country people
their fields without culture, workmen re?
nounced an assured support and dall v hro??,
to run into certain poverty-all moved by tbe
Irresistible desire to escape foreign dominion.
What a response to tbe Prussian pretence of
reBtoriog lo the great Germanic family their
long-parted brethren ot Alsace and Lorraine !
Singular brothers, who turned their backst oo
these brett ren ann sought to know nothing ol
Germany but the road to France 1
All the trains which led to the French fron?
tier were crowded to overflow wllh emi?
grants-In many places the number was so
great that supplementary trains were organ?
ized; on the 30th of September thousands of
young meo crowded the roads, flying at the
last hour from the Prussian conscription.
Sad sceues look place at the railroad stations;
heads of families, merchants, small shop?
keepers left their houses, their interests, all
their pos-eeslons to the caie ot their wives,
and eveo to the young girls of their families.
Sous separated themselves from aged parents,
without knowing if they should ever see each
other again-women wept, and tba firm
closed ll PB and set lea tu rc s ol the men told
what was passing in their souls. As always hap?
pens In a great public misfortune, strangers
conversed together and mingled their sorrows.
A etill more lamentable spectacle was that ot
the poor household goods ol the peasants piled
on cai ts which covered the road-the father
on loot leading the leam with a resolute step,
the mother mounted ou the rickety scaffold?
ing of her paltry furniture, looking with a sad
air at the vast spaces, and the unknown hori?
zon. Mttuy trundled on wheelbarrows their
small possessions. The hlBlory of this suffer?
ing population deserves to be kept In memo?
ry, tor the love ot the peasant for the Boll he
cultivates is BO great, that In losing this lie
loses all lie cures lor, and these laborious peo?
ple, sharp In their bargains, eager for gain,
Inured lo latlguc, and possessed with the
demon of proprietorship, sacrifice the passion
of their whole lives to the pure sentiment of
A widow with ber two children was asked
on the 29th of September where she proposed
to fix her residence. She replied simply: "I
do not know. I have neither resources, cor
asylum, nor employment; but I go; my sons
shall not be G er tu an e." These last words ex?
press the sentiments of all. This lromier pop?
ulation, who have longe?t known Germany,
are the very ones who feel that to belong to
ber would be their greatest misfortune.
"Whither are you got?g?" people were ask?
ed, whose wretched possessions showed their
poverty. "Io Fr?oce," waa the answer.
: hcy went right onward lill they reached the
frontier, und ihen only asked themselves
where i-hould be their shelter and how they
should gain their bread. The young men Oed
that they might not serve ia the Prussian
army; the old men that they might not die
Prussians, hven octogenarians quitted their
asylums to give in their adhesion to France.
Ii ia impossible to est?male the number ol
emigrants. The German censas report (when
published) must be taken with some nlljw
annce, as they unv minde the ancient French
inhabitants lu the German new-comers. If ls
Bald that 161,000 persans gave in their choice
lor France lu the annexed provinces, without
counting 254.000 "opt Iocs" made lo France it?
self; but this number noes not cover the whole
total. The "options" of the exempt minors
are not taken into this accouut, and a crowd
of persons ure known to have departed with?
out any public declaration, while awaiting the
completed list. Some authentic details will
give an idea of i i.e enormous proportions of
In the last three days of September 45,000
travellers passed the station at Nancy, and
the approaches to the railroads were BO
crowded thal the latest comer? could not even
reach the gate without hours of walting. On
the road from Noveaut to Pagny the furniture
wagcn9 succeeded each other without Inter?
ruption, night and day, so close and wedged
together that it seemed like a block in the
streets of Paris.
The City ot Metz, once so flourishing, Is
now a deBert, where here and there appear
only Borne remains of the ancient population.
In all quarters ol the town the closed win?
dows and notices "to lef'overthe doors show
that the houses are empty. Io the principal
street twelve of the largest Bhops are closed,
not to be reopened. Manufactories of shoes,
ot flannel, of hosiery, which employed two
thousand workmen, have been removed to
Nancy, the celebrated workshops for palming
on glass to Bar-le-Dtic. All the attorneys
have gone to France; there remain but two
notaries in the city. On the most moderate
calculation the number of persons who have
quilted Metz amounts to at least thirty-two
thousand. From forty eight thousand Inhab?
itants the population has fallen to sixteen
thousand. It ls not the ancient Metz, only Its
Metz, say the Germans, la Only important
I to us lo a military point of view, f vie need lt
I to close to France the road to Oer nany, and
open to us the road to France.- Our end ls
attained; let Industry perish and be ans be
extinguished-that is the affair ofJ be Inhabi?
tants, not oms.
i But of Strasbourg the Prussian offlclala
speak with solicitude; they intend to render
II happier and more flourishing than ever.
Strasbourg, decayed under France, ph a. ll enter
upon an era of prospeiity such as French
cities have never Known. A powerful univer?
sity, richly endowed, shall dra^ thither the
most celebrated professors of Gernany. What
has become of these magnificent promises?
Fifty-two Germans have replaced in the uni?
versity fifty-one Frenchmen, as veil known
and belter Informed than their successors.
No distinguished man of Germkiy has been
wil ii g to accept toe Prussian ???re and en?
counter the unfavorable dlsposltioi of the Al?
satians. Even of those more obscure profes?
sors, gathered UD from everywhere, some have
alreaoy taken flight, mortified with the void
around them and their deserted, hem re?. lu
fact lhere are no scholars, and In order
lo supply them special scholarships have been
created lor Strasbourg only. In nite of these
advantages, BO eagerly nnnounce(. only those
Inhabitants have remained who are detained
by their necessities. Here, as everywhere, rich
and poor have departed without hesitation,
and though many ot the larger Industries
have not ceased their labors, as this would
have ruined thousands of families, yet lo Al?
sace the current of emigration baa been as
considerable as in the environs of Metz. The
villages ol the French Vosges are peopled
with the new comers. Epinal has 1000, St.
Die, 2500-the whole de par tm eat. 45,000 more
than before. The population of Nancy has
greatly Increased, and many large manufac?
tories have teen transferred thither.
There are in the ceded territory whole vil?
lages where neither workmen nor factory
masters dare to spend the night. Every eve?
ning thousands ol men pass over into France,
who ihus establish that they are Frenchmen,
and return on the morrow to their labor. In
the suburbs of Metz women drove the plough
and sowed the Hehls in October. Eotlre vil?
lages In German Lorrain?, especially in the
environs of Bitche, remain deserted.
Tnnse who stay are In general no less hos?
tile to Germany than those who go. Tbey be?
long principally to the middling clues, who
have only a house or a few fields for their sole
property, and lo quit them Is min. The
workmtn has his strong arms and tools,
which go with him; the rich can spare a part
ol their revenue-but these have noibing
else. Theirs is a sad lot. The relations of
family, friendship and neighborhood, so dear
to the dwellers In provincial towns, are broken
up.by the numerous departures; they remain
Isolated; and the home pleasures In which one
takes refuge in the midst of public Borrow,
are dried up at their sources. As to out-door
enjoyments, ihey have ?eeo ucknowo lor the
last two years io Alsace. The spring fairs,
which drew together a large concourse of
people, and amused a whole department for a
month, are frequented only by Germans. On
ine German public feie days the French re?
main within doors with windows closed; even
the workmen take their dinners lo the shops,
that they may not meet them. Il ls like Ven?
ice under the Austrian rule.
Even In German Lorraine the people have
scarcely spoken that language since the con?
quest, and the mistake of the victors In re>
baptizing the towns-calllnz Thlonville Dud?
enhofen, Chateau-Sallns Salzburg, Ac, Ac
only makes the Inhabitants bold more strong?
ly to the old names.
'lhe emigration has carrie) off bo many
youths that they find almost none for the
Prussian army. In the greater part of the
towns and villages not a man bas awaited
their conscription. At St. Avoid three pre?
sented themselves, all infirm; al Sarre-Union,
one able-bodied man. At Metz, where the
average ls three hundred and filly youths,
there were this year only fltty-seven, of whom
fifty-one eared themselves in France. The
Germans give different ti gu res. They claim
twenty volunteers in Melz. Nothing l's more
exact; but they neglect to mention that these
an? ti'" oona of functionaries and merchants
who have come m norn Germany since me
Bo> s of sixteen and eighteen have fled in
groups, not walling lor ibelr lum to arrive,
One, living on tbe banks ol the Nied, said to
bis mother, who strove lo re?alo him, '-If
you keep me, I will throw myself under the
blidge where the water ls deepest." Another
replied to the entreaties or his family, "Kill
me, I will pardon you my death; but If you
make me a Prussian I will never pardon you."
Generally no resistance has been made io ibe
departure of the youths, though they took
with them all ihe joy and even the support of
the family. Those mothers who had wit?
nessed Prussian reviews at Colmar, Stras?
bourg. Ac,did not wish, at any price, to expose
their sons lo the same severity.
Tbe last straw added io the burden of those
lett behind Is the Imposition of two new tuxes
-one on the culture of tobacco and ihe other ;
on the price of salt, which, coming on people
so exhausted already, Is not likely lo pro?
mote belier feeling. After all, the ground of
Alsace-Lorraine may belong to ihe Germans,
but their souls will be French still.

The bill declare" the election In Louisiana,
held on the Uh of last November to be null
and void, and reinstates in office tbe Stale

Judge for Louisiana, to proceed to Louisiana
and appoint two citizens of different politics
to be Stale registrars, who shall cause a new
registration to be made of all legally qualified
voters ot the State, commencing March 18,
and ending ten days prior to the dale ol elec?
tion. These State registrars are to appoint
two supervisors ot registration tor each parish

greater number are lo be appointed, and In

Trumbull, while concurring in most of the
committee's views, did not favor ibe passage
of tbe bill they reported. He, ^presented his
views In writing that they might be printed

from the report recommending the selling
aside of the late Louisiana election, and a

and recommending that the members of the
Louisiana Legislature, declared legally
elected by both returning boards, be
called together lo the statehouse as
the legislature of the State, and that they
then proceed to count the electlou returna
and declare who are the legally elected State
officers. Anthony, while agreeing with the
majority of the committee In their relation ol
facts, and also in their conclusion ihat there ls
no legal State government In Louisiana, wus
yet so reluctant to resorting to extreme mea?
sures In Interposing the authority of Con?
gress, that he should reserve his Judgment for
a time to.see whether a better way for meeting
the case' could not be found. Wright, ot
Iowa, inquired whether there were Bot some
other members of this committee who wished
to make a report on Louisiana. [Laughter.]

Observations on the Vanity ot Life
Don't Explain that $V?0O.
Be Tore Hr. Colfax made bia last appearance,
the Nation improved his case by making it a
text for some good hints lo Young Men's Chris?
tian Associations. They deserve an even
wider reproduction than they have yet re?
ceived, and an application not merely to such
associations, but to a great many classes of
good and goodish men and women, who think
they serve the cause of religion and morality
by attempting to varnish over and conceal
from public sight such lapses as that of the
vice-President. The Nation says :
Mr. Colfax is behaving-to speak mildly
very Injudiciously. Ile bas been accused, on
ev.dence on which any jury would convict
him, of having perjured himself with regard
to the receipt ol $1200 rrom Oakes Ames.
Now, there Is only one answer to this, viz:
tnat Mr. Colfax received the money from
somebody else, and this answer could be
made in five minutes. All he bas to do ls to
name the man who paid lt to him, and give
the reason tor which lt was paid; and this, to
a gentleman ot small Income who keeps bis
accounts with great accuracy, as Mr. Colfax
says he doeB bis, can be a lass: of no difficulty.
.Inaiead ?i doing this, however, he went to
the Senate, and made an absurd 'demand for
a fresh committee of investigation, though
the Wll?nn committee waa still el tel ocr, then
allowed Oakes Ames to go home, and said he
would produce his defence when Oakes
Ames came back, made some rambling obser?
vations about "looking over his papers," and
tben started off to attend religious and tem?
perance meetings In Philadelphia and Balti?
more. At Philadelphia he made his appear?
ance before the Young Men's Christian As?
sociation, and was received with shouts
of applause ; and at the temperance
meeting at Ballimore there was more
frantic applause, and the Ylce-Presldent
informed the audience tbat "the world was
lull bf human trials and crime, and Buffeting;
lull ol war > and disease, and breaking hearts ;
lull of unjust aspersion," and made other
moral reflections of the same sort. We now
beg to inform Mr. Colfax that honest men are
sick, heartsick of ibis sort of thing; that
what the world demands of him Just at pres?
ent ls not philosophical observations on the
vanity of this lite, but a plain account of how
he got that twelve hundred dollars; and, pend?
ing his preparation of that account they think
he ought to maintain a decent seclusion and
reticence. We may a!ao, with equal confi?
dence, Inform the young brethren ot the
Christian Association that, when they raise
shouts of applause for a man In Mr. Colfax's
position, they set hundreds of thousands o?
oiher young men asking-os they asked dur?
ing the Methodist Book Concern troubles
whether there ls any more necessary connec?
tion between morality and the worship of
Christ than between morality and the worship
of Pan. Membership in these associations ls
last ceasing to be a certificate of Integrity;
let them take care that it does not raise a pre?
sumption o( want ot integrity.
