A Great Radical Fraud.
Tho monstrous outrages which the
radicals have perpetrated upon our
Constitution and all the sacred cus?
toms of tho Government and nation,
are so condemned by even tho defi?
nitions of the dictionaries, that the
radical hands which have the print?
ing of thom nuder their control have
ovou changed those definitions to
accord with their viows. They aro
determined, says the Richmond Dis
2>alcJi, that the definitions of Webster
shall no longer ohattor denunciations
of radical outrages; so they expur?
gated and interpolated the work, in
order to silence their tell-tale
tongues. ID oouipifing his diction?
ary, Noah Webster gave to cortain
words, among which wo now men?
tion "Constitution," "Congress" and
"compact," definitions which were
so abhorrent to the political ideas of
thoso now having that work in
charge that they have, in its later
oditions, stricken them out, and in?
serted other definitions in their
stead. In proof, we refer to the
editions of 1857 and 1868, respec?
tively, and will hore severally adduce
their text, so far as applicable:
"CONSTITUTION, 4.-The estab?
lished form of government in a State,
kingdom or country; a system of
fundamental rules, principles and
ordinances, for the government of a
State or nation. In freo States, tho
Constitution is paramount to tho
statutes or laws enacted by the Legis?
lature, limiting and controlling its
power; and in tho United States, the
Legisluturo is croated and its powers
dosiguatod by tho Constitutisn."
[Edition of 1857.
"CONSTITUTION, 3.-Tho principles
or fundamental laws which govern a
State or other organized body of
mon, and aro embodied in written
documonts, or implied in the institu?
tions and usages of tho country or
society; organic law."
"CONGRESS, 4.-Tho Assembly of
Senators and Representatives of tho
United States of America, according
to the present Constitution or politi?
cal compact, by which they are
united in a federal ropublio; the Le?
gislature of the United States, con?
sisting of two Houses-a Senate and

people of a nation, especially of a

"COMPACT.-An ngreomont; a con?
tract between parlies; a word that
may be applied, in a general sense,
to any contract or covenant between

and that the Demoorats are industri?

General has applied for an attach?
ment against tho respondent for con?
tempt, alleging a refusal on his part
to comply with tho terms of tho
judgment of ouster hcretoforo ren?
dered against him for usurping and
unlawfully exercising the office of
Coroner of Richland County. The
only question raised on tho argument
was whether tho appeal which has
been taken from the judgment ope?
rates is a suporsedoas in reference to
tho remedial action sought in the
The remedy afforded nuder tho
laws of this State, in cases in the na?
ture of quo warranto, is based upon
the statute of 9 Anne, c. 2J, made of
force by section ll wi the article of
December 12, 1712, settling the mode
of pleading, and of disposing of
issues of fact arising, and tho form
of judgment appropriate to tho case.
It authorizes a judgment of ouster,
and also tho imposition of a fino for
tho usurpation, as well as coste to
the prevailing party.
Tho right of granting the writs of
prohibition, mandamus and quo toar
ranio was conferred upon the Judges
of the Court of General Sessions
and Common Pleas, at their cham?
bers, in the same manner and with
the same effect as if done in open
Court; and tho right of appeal to
tho constitutional Court of Appeals
was secured by Act of 1818, statutes
at large, vol. vii., p. 321.
Tho exact question raised appears
not to have been authoritatively de?
cided in this State; but a question
depending on the same general prin?
ciples was presented in Pinckney vs.
Hanegan, (2 Strob., 251,) where it
was decided that an appeal from a
peremptory mandamus was not a su?
porsedoas, but that tho writ must bo
obeyed, notwithstanding such appeal.
The Court places its decision on the
authority of the case o' tho Dean
and Chapter of Dublin vs. Dowgatt,
1 p., Wills, 319, approving tho
grounds of decision afforded by tho
report of that case.
Tho caso of tho Dean aud Chapter
of Dublin vs. Dowgatt, aroso shortly
after tho passago of the Act of ?
Anne, and is an authority beariug on
tho present question, so far ns it is
influenced by the terms of that sta?
tute. The question before tho court
waa, whether tho pendency of a writ
of error to bring up a peremptory
mandamus was a suporscdeas of thc
writ. It was held not to bo a super
sedeas, "for that such a construction
would quite defeat the end of tho
statute and prevent tho officer who
was chosen annually from having
any bruit of the mandamus. This
expression must bo regarded as a
qualified statement of tho moro gen?
eral doctrine, readily recognized,
that tho subjects of controversy ordi?
narily involved in cases of manda?
mus aro of such a nnturo that delay
in affording a remedy is equivalent
to its denial. Such must also bo tho
nnderstauding of tho gonoral observ?
ations as to the effect of refusing a
8upersedeas made by tho learned
judge who delivered tho opinion of
the court in Pinckney vs. Hanegan.
Tho basis of decision thoro laid
down, in reference to tho caso of
mandamus, is still moro forcible in
its application to cases of quo war?
ranto. Tho former case concerns
only some ono official act to bo per?
formed, while tho latter involves tho
capacity of performing any official
act whatever. In both cases, tho
public have tho primary interest
involved, and tho respondent but a
secondary. So, in mandamus, tho
extent of that interest is limited to
tho performance of a singlo act of
duty, while, in the case of quo war?
ranto, that interest is commensurate
with the importance of the vpry
Apart, however, from any conside?
ration of tho intimate relationship
existing between tho two remedies
under consideration, growing out of
their remedial uses, tboy aro brought
into peculiar relation both by the Act
of 9 Anno and that of 1818. They
aro treated in both Acts as part and
parcel of tho same system of reme?
dial means, while in the latter Act
they are misled in referenco to tho
very right of appeal itself. Tho in?
ference is irresistible that the effect
of such appeal must bo the same as
to both methods of procoduro.
Tho authority of Pinckney vs.
Hanegan must, therefore, bo regard?
ed ns embracing tho determination of
thc prosont question.
Tho question whether tho proper
remedy in tho present caso is by at?
tachment, was not argued, but will
properly ariso on tho return of tho
attachment. The rule to show causo
will bo served absolutely.

CONGRESS OR THE CONSTITUTION.
We have repeatedly called attention

this great controversy may be gather?
ed from tho circumstance that tho

IMPENDING TROUMJE IN TENNESSEE.
A correspondent of the New York
World, writing from Washington,
says that news had reached that oity
of serious impending trouble in Ten?
nessee. General Georgo H. Thomas
has commencod to forward additional
United States troops into the State,
and Brownlow has prepared to call
for 30,000 of the militia. Tennessee
has a fuller compl?ment of arms than
any other Southern State, and a
formidable standing State army is
expected to bo organized at once. It
does not appear that any orders have
boen sent to Gen. Thomas to forward
troops from his command, nor are the
authorities fully posted aa to what is
going on either in Kentucky or Ten?
Tb? Political Campaign-. Radtral
Prospects Vorth ?nd Sont I?.
.All tho advices reoeived-Jietajre
oently from the Sonth, represent
oarpet-bagism as ou its deathbed.
With the exception of FloridM and
South Carolina, all the Southern
;tetes are conceded ns certain 'to go
for Seymour and Blair. Tho" radical
organizations in tho reconstructed
regions are dwindling away rapidly,
and defection has reached their very
stronghold with such alarming re?
sults, that the carpet-bag heroes see
nothing but ruin ahead. Thoy have
discovered their great wenkness in
tho very spot where they looked for
an impregnable tower of strength.
The negroes, ? hom they relied upon
as their right arm of power, have be?
come disgusted, and proclaim that
the white radical is a greater enemy
to them than the white rebels who
were lately their masters. The most
intelligent blacks, therefore, have de?
termined to join hands with their old
masters, and thus drive away tho
carpet-beg adventurers from tho
South to their native element. This
repudiation of radicalism by the co?
lored citizens is overwhelming the
Bepublican leaders of thc South, and
consequently they are beginning to
realize that they have been caught in
their own trap. Several shrewd Re?
publicans who have just returned
from different parts of the South
admit that Sambo has turned tho
tables upon them completely, and
that now their only hope of success
is in the North. This last hope
seems not to have a very firm hold of
them either, judgiug by tho manner
in which they write to their friends
in this city. Tho correspondence
sent here from different States in the
East and West, by radical stumpers
and managers, is of the most de?
sponding character. They admit
that Pennsylvania, Indiana and
Ohio aro lost to Grant and Colfax
beyond redemption, und one of them
declares that Illinois will go the samo
way, unless the strongest efforts are
made to save it. Logan's defeat as
Congressman at largo from the State
is spoken of as certain, but the elec?
toral ticket, it is urged, may be car?
ried by clever engineering. The
most sanguine Republican I have
seen here from Colfax's State, only
figures up a Republican majority of
3,000 in Indiana. This Republican
is one of the most shrewd and influ?
ential politicians in tho State of In?
diana. In fact, tho impression ?3
very general herc now that Seymour
and Blair will be elected by a very
decisive majority, not on account of
any great popularity of their own,
but because the people of tho coun?
try are determined to have a change
anyhow. - Wash. Cor. Ar. Y. Herald.

ADAM'S FALL.-In a small country
town, in Hartford County, resides a
clergyman, who is the pastor of a
small flock that esteem him very
highly, and whom he is fond of cate?
chising. A few days since, while
taking a ramble through the village,
he stopped at tho house of one of his
parishioners, and, after the usual
salutation bad been exchanged, the
conversation ran as follows:
"Well, sister W-, cnn you
tell nie how Adam fell?"
Tho lady commenced to smile
audibly, and finally replied: "Why,
my dear doctor, you're not serions?"
"Very serious, indeed," responded
Mrs. W-, whose husband's
name happens to be Adam, replied:
"Well, well, you will have it, doctor.
You see, Adam went to climb over
the fence, the other night, to go to
Deacon M-'s for a bottle of
whiskey, when an oar lying on the
ground took his foot. Over Adam
/eil, and barked his shin, and that's
the whole truth of the matter."
A RADICAL'S OPINION OF GRANT.
Tho Danbury (Conn.) Times, whose
editor was a Union soldier, and till
this year a radical, has this item in
regard to the "General of the army
and the radical candidate for the
Presideuoy," Gen. Grant: "Where
has his name won a single victory?
Not iu New Hampshire, nor in Con?
necticut. His name never caused any
enthusiasm in the army until the
army's work was done, and the pros?
pect of being led into another slaugh?
ter-pen was obliterated, and his name
in politics has not ono convert to the
cause which ho has seen fit to
shoulder. Silence is his statesman?
ship, obstinacy is his firmness, deceit
is his patriotism, nnd horses his
ability. He has lived in smoke and
will end in smoke."
SHOCKING MURDER.-Rev. Elias
Kennedy, a well-known colored
preacher of this place, was brutally
murdered, ou Saturday last, near
Ruckersville, Georgia, where he had
gone to attend a protracted meeting
at a colored church. He was first
ordered to leave the place, and coin
plied with the demand, but had
scarcely returned a mile in this
direction, when he was decoyed from
the buggy and shot by somo person
unknown. These faots are obtained
from his grand-child, a small boy,
who had accompanied him on the
trip. It is needless to say that this
outrage is strongly condemned and
much regretted by all good citizens.

A SAD SNAKE STORY.-A young
lady in Snyder County, Pennsylva?
nia, was in the garden picking ber?
ries. A piercing scream from her
alarmed the rest of the family, who
were at tho tea-table. Hastening tp
tho spot, they found her lying on the
ground insensible. She was carried
into tho house, and, sad to relate,
examination proved that she was
dead. Her friends, on proceeding to
prepare tho body for intermont, were
horror-stricken to find an immense
black snake coiled tightly around her
j person, underneath her clothing.
! There hoing no evidence of the snake
! having bitten her, tho inference was
that tho young lady died from fright.

very original discussion going on
just now in tho newspapers between
Mr. Charles A. Dana, of New York,
and Brick Pomeroy, of the far West,
as to the destiny of the soul of Abra?
ham Lincoln. They both appear to
be very positive in their knowledge
of tho matter-as positive, in fact,
as if each of them had received his
information by express direct from
the alleged location of old Abe's
spirit. Brick Pomeroy affirms, with
vehemence, that tho soul did not go
up to Heaven, but straight down to
the other place.
