GOVERNOR ORR MAKES A REQUISI?
TION FOR FUGITIVE CRIMINALS.-Some
time since, two parties (both colored)
were arrested upon affidavits made,
charging them with the murder of
Mr. Bush, and tho ravishment of
Mrs. Bush, residing in South Caroli?
na. Gov. Orr, upon the facts being
made known through tho proper
channel, has taken the necessary le?
gal measures for tho delivery of the
prisoners to the authorities of South
Carolina, and the parties will be tried
in Beaufort District, whero tho of?
fences were alleged to have been com?
mitted. It was one of the most bru?
tal and diabolical outrages ever
recorded in tho annals of crime.
[Savannah Republican.
TOOK THE PAPERS.-At the last elec?
tion in Baltimore, among tho ques?
tions put to the voters vai the fol?
lowing: "Did you ever rejoico at a
defeat of the Federal army?" An

Political Significance of Worrie.
Verbal terms very faithfully indi'
? cati; political transitions. As soon as
it became fashionable to call tho
! United States a "nation," the world
j was not long in learning that those
who used tho language had a stiug
! ing consciousness that the word
j "Union" was no longer appropriate.
?The; "lifo of the nation" became a?
j favorite expression about the time I
I that there was a guilty sense of .a de- ?
j stroyed Union, and Congress became j
a "grand inquest" when it ceased to
confine itself to its legitimate and j
constitutional sphere. There is a j
wondrous power in words, and their j
employment not only denotes pro?
gressive changes in the thoughts and?
habits of a people, but they aro fre?
quently the forerunners of revolu?
tionary projects and designa By j
fixing popular attention upon this j
congregation of States as a "na-1
tion," the public mind was prepared j
for those changes which are success- !
ively engulphing all the attributes of
a republic, aud buildiug up consoli?
dated despotism in its stead.
It is safe to affirm that the masses
at tho North who constitute the
dominant party, know but littlo of
history. If they did, they would seo
that despotism can be exercised by
the many as well as by one. They
have au idea that only kings, empe?
rors, sultans and czars can be des?
pots, and with this cardinal error in
their minds, they have sold them?
selves, body and soul, to their Con?
gress. The time is coming-nay, it
is close at hand-when they will be?
seech God to commit them to the
tender mercy and conscience of an
autocrat, so that the hundreds of
vultures now tearing them may he
exchanged for an eagle.
We, of tho South, claim to be a
little in advance of our Northern
neighbors, of radical persuasion, in
political wisdom. We have been
thoroughly educated in the school of
adversity and suffering, and with all
the lights of the past and the warn?
ing vigils of the. futura gleaming fear?
fully athwart our pata, we would
take a czar or emperor to-day, sooner
than a Government administered by
a Congress in which we are unrepre?
sented-a Congress which takes new
courage from our helplessness, and
becomes more fierce, cruel and bitter,
just in proportion as we become more
weak.
Those of us who are not fools or
knaves will readily admit what pre?
sent events are inevitably drifting us
to. The anarchy, misrule and chaos
growing out of many despots, logi?
cally and unavoidably drive the peo?
ple to seek that security and protec?
tion which will be found in the stern
will and iron heel of a single master.
Those who first broke the dam and
let in the waters will be the. first
drowned, and come what, may, thc
man who shall grasp supreme po wei
will naturally commence by weeding
out all small rivals and competitors.
Does any one suppose that so huge
and unwieldy a body as Congress cai
long keep or exercise the supreme
powers which it is arrogating to it
self? Does Congress itself think so'
If so, a greater mistake than such 2
supposition was never committed
As soon as Congress shall have eon
summated its plans of political abso
lutism, some mau in or outsido of i
will seize and hold all the powe
which he may very justly deem hi
has as much right to as they have
And the facility with which he wi!
accomplish his designs will demon
strate how easy it is for men to b
Cromwells or Napoleons, if they onl;
have the nerve and select thc prone
time.
If any ono believes that we. aro ;
false prophet, let him see whethe
time does not vindicate us.
[ Riclimond Times.
DECLINE IN PRICES.-The whole
sale prices of the past week in ail th
leading markets of the country, say
the Charleston Courier, show a con
siderable decline. There is a dedin
in cotton and cotton fabrics, adeclin
I in cattle and provisions, a decline i
I sugars, a decline in wool, tallow
! leather, naval stores, metals, bomb
i stock, Sec., &c. In the necessaries c
i lifo it is inevitable that men in th
retail trade must speedily reco'gniz
these declensions in price, and giv
consumers some of the benefits, j
is found that there has been over-prt
duction in many things, especially' i
manufactures-that is, production bi
yond the ability and disposition c
the people to consume ut tho big
prices asked, and in many cases th
protectionists have over-reached then
selves. The failure of a market i
the South has had its effect, too, o
all dry goods, and thus thrift in th
section is shown to be a need for tl
whole country. It is found, alsi
that breadstuff's and provisions ai
plentiful in the country, and dealei
must realize that they are to be sati
tied with less than the exorbitai
prices of tho period of war. Ti
large stocks held in tho West on bo
rowings at high rates of money, ca
not bo held much longer, as the rat
of interest aro rising in the E?
also.

A Southern Hospital Associatio
1 for tlie i elief of disabled Confeden:
soldiers, has been formed in New (
leans. General Hood is President
the association, and General S.
Buckner, vice-President. Among t
Trustees aro Generals Lee, Beau
gard, Johnston and others. A ladi
branch association has also bc
formed, and a bazaar is to be open
at New Orleans for its benefit.
Public Benevolence?
We take tlie following from the
New York World, of the 21st instant :
Certain papers persist in obtruding j
their advice upon Mr. A. T. Stewart
touching tho proper method for him
to pursue in laying out tho million
dollars or more, which it is said he
intends to uso for the purpose of
erecting model dwellings for the poor
of this city. No doubt Mr. Stewart
is very much obliged to his advisers,
and will duly weigh all tho sugges?
tions they offer, and adopt them if of
any value. The article we give this
morning from the London Pall Mall
Gazette, is, however, of far more prac?
tical use to him, as it summarizes in
an understandable form the results !
of tho model lodging-houso move- !
mont in London. After all one has j
heard and read of thoso English Cn- j
terprises, it is somewhat dishearten- j
ing to find that barely seven thou- j
sand people are benefitted by them, j
and of these only a few hundred be- I
long to the very poor laboring class, j
It is the better sort of artizans who, 1
after all, inhabit these model lodging- !
(louses, and they.nre- not a class who, I
under ordinary circumstances, would j
live poorly or who need charity.
If such aro the meagro results of
the enormous sums of money spent
in England to provide decent homes
for tho poor, it at once becomes a
question whether it is an evil that can
bo reached by private benevolence,
however munificent. Thc stubborn
fact remains, as the Pall Mall Gazelle
points out, that it pays better to build
fever-breeding tenement houses than
well-drained and ventilated, whole?
some dwellings; and so long as that
is tho case, it is simply fighting
against human nature and the laws of
trade to try and rectify the matter by
private enterprise. Thc foulest courts
in London pay fifteen and twenty per
rent, on tho . investment of money,
while, the most profitable of the
model lodg'ng-houses do well if they
return six per cent. The same is
true in this city. Some, tenement
house property, and the very worst at
that, pays as high as thirty and forty
per cent., while tho average return
from good houses in good localities is
rarely more than ten per cent.
FROM MEXICO.-A despatch to thc
World, of the 21st instant, says:
Maximilian has not sailed, nor is it
likely he will sail soon, as the French
would not allow him to leave until he
signs a formal abdication.
A little indiscretion of the com?
mander of the Austrian frigate Don
dalo has been the cause of this.
When Maximilian left Mexico,
Gen. Bazaine thought that he came
to Orizaba merely on a little excur?
sion, as he had gono to Cuernavaca
and other places.
Day before yesterday, tho com?
mander of the Dondalo received at
midnight a despatch from Maxi?
milian, ordering him to have his fri?
gate ready yesterday, at 5 o'clock p.
m., at which time Maximilian ex?
pected to be here, and wanted to sail
afc once. As spon as tho.Austrian
commander received this despatch,
he called on M. Pey ron, tho French
commander, to take leave of him.
Ho showed tho despatch he had re?
ceived, and asked orders for Trieste.
M. Peyron sent at once this informa?
tion to Gen. Bazaine, who despatched
instructions by telegraph to the
French commanders at Orizaba, Cor?
dova and Yera Cruz, not to allow
Maximilian to escspe, and addressed
himself to the Arch-duke, stating
that he knew his plan to lly from
Mexico, but that he could not be per?
mitted to do so, unless he would for?
mally abdicate. The reason of this
conduct is, that should Maximilian
leave without a formal abdication,
the position of the French would Vie
very difficult and ridiculous, while, if
he abdicates in their favor, they will
be released from their engagements
toward him. It is said that Maxi?
milian will be obliged to return to the
city of Mexico and submit to Ba*
zaine's terms.
AN INTERESTING SCRAP OF CONFEDE?
RATE HISTORY.-Admiral Semmcs, in
reviewing in his paper, the Mobile
Gazette, Mr. E. A. Pollard's history
of the war, publishes tho following
order under which the Confederate
fleet in James River was blown up on
the night of tho evacuation. It has
never before been published:
CONFEDERATE STATES OF AMERICA, j
EXECUTIVE OFFICE, RICHMOND, VA.,
April 2, 1865.-Rear Admiral Raphael
Semmes, Commanding James River
Squadron-SIR: General Lee advises
the Government to withdraw from
this city, and the officers will leave
this evening accordingly. I presume
that General Leo has advised you of
this, and of his movements, and made
suggestions as to the disposition to
be made of your squadron. He with
I draws upon his lines, towards Dan?
ville, this night, and unless otherwise
directed by General Lee, upon yon
is devolved tho duty of destroying
your ships this night, and with ali
thc forces under your command, join?
ing General Lee. Confer with him,
if practicable, beforo destroying
thoa. Let your people be rationed,
as far as possible for the march, and
armed and equipped for duty in thc
field. Very respectfully, your obe?
dient servant, S. R. MALLORY,
Secretary of the Navy.

EMANCIPATION.-Herc is thc rcsnlt
of emancipation, after thirty years' I
trial in Jamaica, as reported by the
Colonial Sta.nda.-1:
"The fact is there, that we now ;
produce just less than one-fifth what ?
wo did sixty years ago, and that, too, ?
with a largerj present population; j
and the true causes are, that tho la- j
borers, having been rendered imprac?
ticable bymisch ie vous teachings, have j
withdrawn from the labor market, !
and that many have sought other \
means of living, and have realized a i
sort of savage independence, beyond :
?which, their untutored nature teaches
them to wish for nothing; that con- I
siderablo numbers have becomo tho- {
roughly demoralized, and livo by ?
depredation, and that many aro stiil
taught to consider thc large. x>roprie- '
tors as their natural enemies, and j
will only work for thorn when they ?
cannot help themselves. Tho Anti- ?
Slaver?/ Reporter says that, out of
350,000 people, 20,000 only labor on |
estates, and-thc 20,000 are so inde?
pendent that, according to thc report I
of the Royal Commissioners, they |
work only one-third of the time w hich ?
they ought to devote to labor."
THE ODD FELLOWS AND TIIE SUF?
FERING OF THE SOUTH.-We are au?
thorized to state that the members of
thc several lodges of the Independent
Order of Odd Fellows, in Baltimore,
will, on the evening of the 4th of De?
cember, give a grand fair at Odd Fel?
lows' Hall, the purpose of which is
to raise funds for the amelioration of
the condition of the destitute widows
and orphans of the South. One or
more concerts for the same purpose
will be held nuder the auspices of the
order, of the time of holding which
tl.o public will be duly notified. In
addition to these methods of raising
funds, promising so much pleasing
entertainment to our citizens, contri?
butions of produce and clothing aro
solicited from all who feel themselves
able to give, to be delivered at the
agricultural warehouse cf Messrs.
Hamilton ? Gilmore, Odd Fellows'
Hall. Arrangements have been made
to have all such articles transported
South free of charge.
TELL US WHAT TO Do.-The New I
York Timex, after reading the South?
ern papers ou the late elections, de?
clares the Southern people sufficient?
ly, and indeed marvelously, humble
and submissive. We have only one
thing more to do, to become all that
is wanted-to seek ou ti aud actively
assist in executing thc will of the
North. That is to say, like well
trained oxen,' to run with alaerity
under the yoke whenever held up.
The Herald, on the other baud,
pronounces us, on the same data,
sullen and defiant, and as foolish as
ever ; and advises us to burry-down
^lpon our knees, and into the dust, |
before it is too late.
Would it not be well for these two j
monitors to get together, and agree |
upon their testimony and advice ? j
How can wo tell what to do, when j
one applauds and encourages, while j
the other terrifies us ?
A committee of special agents
has been appointed to revise
the regulations of tho Post Office
?Department in relation to regis
i tered letters. It has been determined
to use large-sized envelopes, print?
ed in brilliant colors, and made
so conspicuous from their size and
appearance that they cannot be easily
concealed or stolen by persons hav?
ing charge of thc opening or closing
of mail pouches. At present, regis?
tered letters do not differ much in
appearance from ordinary letters, and
can often bo captured by a skillful
thief without detection. We should
think that this arrangement would
afford additional facilities to thieves,
discovering to them, as it will at
once, tho most valuable letters.
A NF.W MATERIAL.-It is said that
an artificial ivory is now made in i
France from a paste of papier mache
and gelatin. Billiard balls formed of
this material, though barely a third
of the prico of those made from real
ivory, are yet so durable and elastic
that they can be thrown from the top
of the house on to the pavement, or
j violently struck with a hammer, with
! out injury. With this same paste, to
I which the name of Parisian marble is
! given, among other things, the finest
and most complicated mouldings for
ceilings can bo made, or capitals of
calumns can be constructed in any
color so as to resemble the most valu?
able marbles.
SALE OF THE STATE WORKS.-The
real estate of the State Works at this
place has been sold, for ten thousand

operation as soon as the necessary
