A most roinantio elopement has just
occurred in Loudon; .England, which
has severely shocked the propriety of
the "Upper Ten," And created a
general "nine day's wonder," on ac?
count of the different positions whieh
the respective parties to the affair
held in society. It appears that a
-young lady named Crosse, aged about
twenty years, the daughter of a
clergyman, formed au attachment to
.her father's groom-a lad two years
her junior, named George Smith.
George had b^en in the family for
about two years, during which time he
used to accompany the young lady
during her equestrian exercises. In
this way, an intimacy sprung up be?
tween them, which tho father finally
became aware of, and thereupon de?
termined to discharge George at once.
The young lady heard of her father's
intention, and on the day the boy was
to leave, she managed to see him, and
told him to come to her windowat
night* as she wanted to escape with
him. The groom advised her not to
, pursue this course, but she persisted,
and accordingly the reluctant youth
went to the window at the time in
dicated, when the young lady dropped j
from her bower into the arms of the j
object of her passion. The next ques
tibn was, how to get married? The 1
lady had a considerable sum of money
in her .possession, which she placed
in the hands of her lover, and tho
!>airsiaried off they knew not whither.
They, however, made tracks for
Wandsworth, whore they hired apart?
ments, and the next day appeared
before a magistrate for the purpose of
being matrimonially united. The
magistrate refused to marry them on
the ground that the lady was under
The couple, therefore, returned dis?
consolate to their apartments, and
lived together for two days, when the
police, who had been notified by the
father to hunt up ?he runaways, came
upon them and arrested the groom on
a charge of fraudulently inducing the"
young lady to leave her home, know?
ing that she had money in her poss?i
sion belonging to Mr Crosse. The
case afterwards came tip for exami?
nation, before a police magistrate,
where the facts were made apparent.
Upon being asked if the groom had
induced her to quit her home, or
made the first advance to that end,
the damsel said "No, I think we were
about equal." It being plainly proved
that she was a consenting party, the
young man was acquitted of the
charge of fraudulently enticing her
from her home. In regard to the
money, he had left it untouched, arid
offered to return it to the father. Ac?
cording to the evidence of the young
lady, the chivalrous groom had con?
ducted himself with the utmost honor
and restraint, and it was officially an?
nounced that the young lady ".return?
ed to her home as intact .as on the
day she leftiu" "All'swell that cn^s
well." The reverend gentleman find?
ing his daughter really attached to tho
young mau, and determined to marry
him, gave Tiis' consent, and on thc
14th inst., the happy pair were united
Ii and the blushing bride taken to her
husband's home in triumph, the
party being followed by an "admiring
crowd, " who cheered lustily, and the
scene ends by Mr. George Smith re?
turning "hcarfeit thanks" to his
friends from a first floor window

DOIT GKEEK STIIL, LIVES-WHAT
MK. LINCOLN SATD.-Gen. Duff Green
is about to publish a letter reciting
the conversation he nacl "with Presi?
dent Lind?l? just before the fall of
Richmond. Mr. Green, in Iii" inter?
view, told Mr. Lincoln that the peoplo
of the South wanted peace. The latter
replied, Mr. Green says, in this wise*
"If you want peace, come back into
the Union, and if you! want slavery,
or do not want it, you can vote on
the Constitutional' Amendment. I
cannot take back any ci my emanci?
pation proclamation, but I will be
liberal in amnesty to the Southern
people." This took place in presence
of Gen, Weitzel and others.

To tile Voter* ot Orangeburg, E?lge

FSLT.OW-CITIZENS: After much hesitation,
1 have consented to be put in nomination
for your Representative in the Congress of
' thc United States. I publish this card, be
? cn uso the District is so large and tho time
?before the election so short that I could
: not, if I desired, canvass the District. If a
j canvass were possible, however, I do not
: think it becoming or desirable. In my
! judgment, this is no time for a sera ruble for
j office. It seems to me that no one proper
' ly impressed with the solemnity of the
j crisis, and the delicacy and importance of
! the duties to be discharged, could seek the?
; position merely for the gratification of per
! sonal ambition. For myself, I declare rhat
j I have no wish but to servo the State.
In 1788, South Carolina, through a ron
j vention of her people, became one of the
j United States. She remained a member of
I tho Union until December, 1800, when,
j through another convention of her people,
I she repealed the Ordinance of 17S8. seced
I ed from the United Statea, and with cer
I tain other sister States entered into another
i government' known as tho Confederate
; Government. We believed that we had the
right to secede and that our security re?
quired ita exercise in co-operation with our
Southern sisters. South Carolina, in 1852,
proclaimed by solemn ofdinance the right
J of secession. It bad long been tho settled
opinion of the State that abe was sovereign
and entitled to all tho rights of sovereignty.
She asserted self-government in order to
secure ber institutions and principles from
great evils, believed to be imminent. 8c
cession wa? ir. the nature of a proceeding
quia limet. It was coeecived in thc spirit of
I self-preservation-not to injure others but
to save ourselves. It cannot bc necessary
I to say that I am one of those who believe
that it was an honest effort for honorable
I purp -ses. The United States Government
I denic I the right of secession and waged
war ipon tho Confederate States, which
stooc upon the defensive-. A terrible war
of in? Vbion and desolation followed, and
finalh the Confederate States were over?
whelm i d by force of numbers and dissolved.
At the md of tho war the State of South
Carolin i found thc Confederacy broken un,
her cit a ens who survived tho terrible
ordeal ? hausted and impoverished, her
institut, i s destroyed, and the whole coun?
try occupied bj-tho military forces of the
United States. Under thes? painful cir
j cumstaxu the President of the United
States invited the States lately composing
the Confederacy to re-organizH tlicir gov
"ernnicnts and restore their connection, with
tho Constitution and Government o'f thc
United States, upon certain conditions, thc
' principal of which was an acqniesence in
tho abolition of slavery, whieh had boon
accomplished by the military authorities.
The State, wisely in my judgment, respond?
ed favorably to "tho invitation, ' It is true
that the mere issue of battle does not prove
right any more than did the old "wager of
battle;" but it does prove power which can
hot bc disregarded. A Provisional Gover?
nor was appointed, who called another con?
vention of the people, which lias lately
repealed tho Ordinance of Secession, and
bj- ah article in the state Constitution,
recognized the abolition of slavery arid pro?
hibited its re-establishment. Bv repeal?
ing that of Secession, the Ordinance of
1788, through whieh Soutli, Carolina be?
came a member, of th'? Union, was ipso
facto revived, and we are this day in the
Union precisely as we became in ?7JSS and
remained up to 1860.
We arc* now in a very anomalous position.'.
Relying upon tho good faith .".nd patriotic
intentions of the President oUhc United
States, wo have done all that Wm required
of us 'to restoro o un old reflrnons to tho
Constitution and the Union; but still we
have not; been received into fellowship at
Washington. That important par^>f the
plan of reconstruction remains ysBto he
accomplished. It is understood" ^fct' a
party will oppose thc President's P?sb pf
reorganizing the Statesaud giving to tm>m
equality of rights, and will i:. ;ud upon still
farther" despoiling and crushing the Stated
of the South as conquered provinces. Thur
radical fanatical party opposed our leaving
tho Union, and now they oppose ourreturn
I ing to it. When we were in the Union, they
I abused us on account ?f slavery. They
j waged T. ur upon us because we tried to
separate from them, and now that wo pro?
pose to return without slavery, they still
object. In this emergency, tho"8tate"needs
the assistance of all her tn?- men. Much
remains to be done, and not the least is to
secure a prudent, faithful and patriotic
representation in Congress, to assist and
forward the work of restoration which the
State has commenced. I arrogate not to
myself fitness to form part of such a rep?
resentation, hut friends have Urged me for?
ward, and if you are willing to try mo, I
will give my befit efforts.
In sonic respects, we are at the beginning
?d' our policy, as if we were a new State
about to assume now relations with our
sister States; but we must never allow our?
selves to forget that in other respects we?
are an old State-a State having antcce
j dents-a name to maintain and a history to
preserve. Whatever nicy betide ns in the
j uncertain future, the past, r.t least, is sc
I cure. . South Carolina hus never swerved
I from the path of honor, as she conceived it.
! We have a record of whieh none need he
ashamed: and when anv apostate son ef
hers disclaims or disparages it, may she
east him out as unworthy of her. The
devotion of every true son of tho State
adheres in adversity as well as in pros?
perity-is loyal through evil as well as
through good report ; and in, the midst of
the greatest misfortunes, "sticketh closer
than a brother."
After the delegations from the Southern
States shall have been received into Con?
gress, many delicate and impoi tant duties
will devolve upon them, especially in refer?
ence to the freedmen of the South, and the
control whieh Congress, or a party in Con?
gress, may desire still to exercise -over
them. It may not be improper, in this
connection, to say that, whilst I havo a?>
provod rV.c course of tho State in seeking
to restore herold relations with the Govern?
ment of the United States, it'has been upon
the faith awtd expectation that the State, as
soon as reconstructed, is to have entire
' control of thc whole subject of lier domes?
tic affairs. The Statc^and the State alone,
must be loft to decide to whom she will
give the right of suffrage! or other political
rights. A new code noir must be enacted
to protect and govern tho population lately
made free-to prevent idleness, vagrancy,
pauperism ami crime. I am not prophet
enough to foresee whethe r wo cari succeed,
but 1 solemnly belie ve it v.ill be impossible
to live in the country at all unless the Stat?
has exclusive control bf the whole subject.
1 have hope that this vnllbe permitted, nm:
I-think it is in accordance with our inte?
rests and true?olicy to sustain tho Presi?
dent and tho Democratic party in .theil
efforts to restore the St.ties to their posi
tion of equality and to give them equa
rights in tho (fovcrnment.
With these views, if the voters of th?
District think that I can servo them or th<
'State in this critical emergency, I will d<
my best for them; but I have too high t
sense of my own incompetency and of tb
difficulties and responsibilities of thc posi
tion, lo solicit it l>v a personal canvass.
