T&&e P?aba WT Barop?,
The sp^eohes of the Emperor of
France are very paoiflo. The speeches
of such of his Ministers as indulge in
oratory are assuring. The official
journals talk mildly of the benefits of
peace. Everything is apparently
modeled, in Franco, upon principles
which will insure the reign of quiet
for all time; and no one in Europe
should imagine that there can be the
slightest idea of any disturbance in
these amicable relations, whioh it is
the pride of the Emperor Napoleon
to cherish. But, amid these sooth?
ing facta and agreeable circumstances,
there is another drawback, whioh
comes from Marshall Neill, who an?
nounces that the re-arrangements of
the Frenoh army are completed, and
that it is in fall fighting trim. Of
course, as "the empire is peace," the
Marshal does not hint that there will
be any opportunity of employment
for the army, at present. On the
contrary, it may be supposed that
the fact that it is, or might be, pnt
upon a war footing, at a moment's
notice, is of no importance, except as
a matter of truth, whioh it might bo
desirable to have made known. The
Philadelphia Inquirer thinks the
world interprets this significant hint
as something like a menace. France
gives notice that, if she does not act
ugly, it is hot because she might not
do so, but because she does not de?
sire to disturb the peaoe of Europe.
Hence, there is a strange interest
attracted to the Napoleonic utter?
ances. The more frequently they
are made, tho less impression do they
have, and, hence, Europe is on the
alert for the first note of war, whioh
must come from France, and which,
despite all assurances to the contrary,
is expeoted, in proportion, perhaps,
to the strength and volume of the
imperial assurances that such a thing
is impossible. Tho blow will fall, it
is supposed, (when it does fall,) upon
Prussia; and, just as soon as the toc?
sin of war is sounded, it will be dis?
covered, wo imagine, that Prussia
is entirely ready for the encounter.
There are signs portending fresh and
unusually vigorous agitation of the
Roman question, and this could but
be naturally expected. Garibaldi
has left the national council halls,
from. the alleged conviction that he
could better serve Italian unity in
tho field; and, in retirement on his
native isle, is said to be devoting
himself to the framing of a, new and
more promising campaign. Mazzini,
too, is making vigorOUB exertions, in
a new direction; and all the known
leaders, in fact, are significantly
active. A fugitive sentence, dropped
here and there by leading journals in
Europe, would tend to the belief that
the initiative step will be taken by
the Emperor of the Frenoh; and this
theory is in completo harmony with
the views o! General La Marmora,
expressed in his letter of some
months since, in whioh he so candid
ly revealed certain incidents connect?
ed with his o#n ministerial career in
the Italian Cabinet. Indeed, so
frank was he, that he took special
pains, by making unexpected dis
closures, of a semi-State naturo, to
convince the Italian people, and the
communities of other countries, that,
ever since the Convention of Sep?
tember, in 1864, Napoleon TH has
_. _ . _
been watching over Italy carefully.
If we credit the ox-Ministor's state?
ments, Napoleon merely intended, by
that Convention, to tempo? aiily poat
pSe tho consummation' of Italian
wffhes r&peeting the abolition cf tho
temporal power of the Papal 8eo
until a more favorable morneu'?^ thai
is, nntil the revolution; could bo
effected without undue violence, and
the starting into motion of antagon?
isms that would not only threaten
defeat of Roman annexation itself,
but which would also T>o injurious to
French interests attaohing to other
and perhaps more important schemes
elsewhere. It must be doubted that
anything else than a pressure of an?
other kind ever induced the Empe?
ror to enter into the negotiations of
September, a pressure that he was
unable to withstand. But even ad?
mitting tho correctness of LuMar
mora's views, is this the opportune
moment for settlement of tho ques?
tion? Yet the condition of public
opinion, on the continent, is indicat?
ed by the fact that when a report was
sent through Enrope the other day
that tho Emperor had uttered war?
like sentiments in his address to tho
troops at Chalons, on the occasion of
his visit to the camp there, rentes at
once fell on the Paris Bourse, and
people said it meant a settlement of
the deferred Roman status. If there
is anything to favor this idea, it must
be found alone in the fact that Italian
neutrality, in case of a French war
with Prussia, is not sufficient for Na?
poleon; and that to secure more it
would be his policy to carry the nation
through the Roman troable and free
her from the perplexity that looms
above all other difficulties, casting
about the national limbs the Jettera
of a political nightmare. Perhaps
the full realization of the national
dreams would give him the desired
alliance; but here the theory meets
grave obstacles, for such an alliance
pre-supposes, of course, a breaking
off with Prussia, and how could Italy
break with the power which has ef?
fected so strong a title to Italian gra?
titude? No man can serve two mas?
ters, we are told, and it is equally
true that no nation can be the active
ally of each of two other nations in
open war with each other. Yet
LaMarmora would seemingly have us
believe so. He affirms it to be a mis?
take to suppose that the Prussian
alliance implies coldness towards
France. If this be true, what expla?
nation is to be given of the debates
of last winter in tho Italian Cham?
bers? There is another reason why
the Emperor might bo tempted to
take a step in this direction now, but
it is too unimportant, apparently, to
entitle it to much weight. It is
found in the fact that in the volun?
teer army which is gathering around
the Pope, a strong legitimist and
royalist nucleus is formed, favorable
to tho intriguing designs of the
Bourbons refuged in Rome. Unim?
portant as this latter reason now is,
though it is easy to perceive that it
could be invested with controlling
importance by the Pope boldly and
openly attaching himself to tho plots
of Napoleon's enemies at tho Vatican
and tho Farneso Palace, a move
might oven unwarily be made by his
Holiness that would force tho Empe?
ror to promptly counter-move to
escape a checkmate It is unneces?
sary to say that that, counter-move
would not pr?vido for the continu?
ance of the temporal power. Thc
whole political world, the Inquire}
concludes, will view with deep inter?
est the next agitation of the Roman
question, whatever quarter it ma\

There was a fine turn-out. The
meeting was a most intelligent and
earnest one,, and many of tho fair
women of the two neighboring Dis?
tricts graced the occasion with thoir
presence, and dignified the cause by
their adherence. Au extra train from

THE RESULT IN MAINE.-A special
despatch to the New York World,
dated Bangor, September 15, says:
"The Republicans of this city, in?
cluding the Hon. Hannibal Hamlin,
are greatly discouraged at the result
in their State. They had confidently
counted on 25,000 majority for
Chamberlain. Returns received to?
day indicate that it will not exceed
15,000, which is a Democratic gain
of nearly 18,000 from 1866, the last
test vote in the State. The Demo?
crats throughout the State are jubi?
lant, it being conceded before the
election that anything less than
20,000 Republican majority would be
a Democratic triumph. For ten days
before eleoi ion the radicals freely bet
on from 20,000 to 25,000 majority.
Large sums of money have changed
hands to-day, the radicals paying up
their bets. In tho cities and a few
large towns, where the radicals hold
absolute control of the polls, they
made large gains over last year; but
tho country towns. generally show
large Democratic gains. The radicals
have spent half a million of dollars in
THE MASONIC CONVENTION AT ST.
LOUIS.-The parade of the Knights
Templar, in St. Louis, on Tuesday

most interesting events that ever
occurred there. Over thirty com
manderies were in the procossion,
representing about twenty States.
A still greater number would have
been present, but for the detention j
of steamers and railroad trains. The
streets along the lino were thronged
with spectators, who greeted the
delegations with cheers, waving of
handkerchiefs and other manifesta?
tions of welcome. Tho Council una?

A father came homo from his bu?

said: "Nellie would not like to go
to bed without saying her prayers?"
Half opening her large blue eyes,

"Now I lay mo down to sleep,
I pray the Lord-"
Then adding, in a sweet murmur,
"He knows the rest," she sank on
hor pillow in His watchful caro who
"giveth His beloved sleep."
At the (plantation of Mrs. James
Erwin, iu Abbeville District, on Mon?
day evening lost, an altercation took
place between Harvey Pratt and
Honry Elam, both colored men,
which resulted in the death of tho
former. Pratt was terribly out up
with a very large knife. Jealousy
was at the bottom of the dispute.
Elam delivered himself up.

The Late B?avrfhqu?lce.
The lotter? from Lima gi ye minute
details of the terrible offeots'of the
recent earthquake on the Pacific
coast. We have published theymost
important of them. .One lette? men?
tions, that twenty valuable ^silver
mines in tho interior of Pern-were"
completely sunk, "tho earth opening
and huge water-sponts coming np. .
At Cobija, the loss of Ufo was alight.
It was bnilt on a bluff fifty feet
above the seo. The houses tottered
and tumbled over into the posan,
while the inhabitants fled to the
high hills close at hand and escaped.
Bands of thieves, as is always the
case when calamities involving de?
struction of property occur in com?
munities, were roaming about the
villages and country residences,
searching tho ruins, picking up every?
thing valuablo they could find, and
even robbing the bodies of the dead.
A curious illustration of their greed
and readiness to pocket valuable
articles . and gulp down everything
edible and drinkable that falls in
their way. is mentioned. A box of
sarsaparilla washed ashore from
some ship, and they drank every
bottle of it, taking it to be a bever?
age for ordinary use. Whether it
was the compound of old Dr. Jaoob
Townsend or the young Townsend,
ia not stated; but one or the other
had better institute inquiry us to the
effeots of this box; it might turn out
to their advantage. It could not,
however, convert the thioves to hon?
est men. Tho Townsend quacks
could hardly invent a cure for that;
it would be out of their line.
The most original statement of ali
is gathered by a letter-writer of Lima
from General Kilpatrick, our Minis?
ter to Chili, who had arrived at Lima,
on his way home, and who had
brought reports of the effects of wie
earthquake, os for down as|the State
to which he was accredited. He
stated that, on the South side of the
rained city of Arica, "as the earth
opened and yawned, there came up
600 mummies, who stood in long
Unes, facing the sea." The writer
calls them "mummies," though he
afterwards calls them skeletons. The
hideousness of the array would be
equally decided with the one os the
other. The narrator says that each
of the skeletons was entire, the
hands doubled np and supporting
the chin, tho knees drawn up, and
the feet supporting the fleshless
frame. This was the manner of
banal of the aborigines. The place
where this unearthing of the skele?
tons occurred was an old cemetery,
and tho skeletons are, doubtless, the
remains of the Incas and Indians.
The writer well ?moy say: "As tho
ground receded, what a ghastly spec?
tacle, amid the throes of an earth?
quake, was the coming up again to
earth of theso long-buried skeleton
remains!" It was a sort of mockery,
by the dead, of the living, this sud?
den appearance of 500 skeletons in
the midst of the calamity, glaring
with their sightless orbs upon the
scenes of horror and despair amongst
the living! What a commentary upon
A Peruvian gentleman, who was in
Arica during the earthquake, has
given the New York papers many
horrible details and incidents. He
says: "No one who did not witness
it, oan form ony idea of its horror."
Groans and outcries, falling build?
ings and shivered timbers, tho air so

each one throwing him or herself flat

and opened around them. Parents
crying for their children; mothers

THE LEGISLATURE.-A HIGH OLD
TIME.-FRUITLESS ATTEMPT TO EXPEL
THE IRREPRESSIBLE LESLIE.-The in?
terest of the proceedings in the great
unlawful was confined, yesterday, ex?
clusively to the attempt, on the part
of the Senate, to expel Charles P.
Leslie, the member from Barnwell.
Mr. Leslie, who is a frank, outspoken
Republican, but one who has mani?
fested, on every occasion, his inten?
tion to legislate for the benefit of all
classes of, people in the State, without
reference to political issues, hos, for
some time past, been very obnoxious
to his own party, because he has
never truckled to their schemes oi
permitted himself to lose sight of the
fact that he is a white man, enter?
taining enough self-respect to vote
against every resolution and bill
which contemplated social equality.
In this way ho has inourred the petty
hatred of such negroes as Randolph,
Nash and Swails, who dread his
ability and independence; and they
have anxiously been looking for an
opportunity to get rid of him. Thie
seemed to present itself last week,
when Mr. Leslie, in a fit of disgust
at the shameless partizanship with
which he was prevented, by parlia?
mentary technicalities, from unearth?
ing some of the radical rascality ol
his colleagues, and he said to thc
President, "You may gag me and
rush things through as you please:
you will be sorry for it." lian do! pl:
took hold of this bauble, and, using
it in connection with Mr. Leslie*!
refusal to retain his seat wher
Wright, a negro, was put in th?
chair in tho temporary absence ol
the President, offered a resolution t(
expel him, on tho ground of disre
spect and contempt. Tho mattel
came up for consideration, yesterday
and occasioned a high old time.
Tho attendanco of visitors wa:
unusually large, the public hnvinj
understood that tho resolution wouh
be likely to cause an interesting de
bate, and amongst the audience wer
many of the best citizens of Colum
bia. When tho resolution was callei
up, a proposition was made to ex
pnngo all of it looking to the expul
sion of Mr. Leslie, so as simply t
reprimand him for his conduct; bu
it failed. Under the rules, Mr. Lei
lie was allowed to make his defence
preparatory to leaving the Senat
Bising with great composure an
dignity, he said that ho hoped n
Senator would, in a narrow-minde
or mean spirit, interrupt him in hi
remarks; and ho desired to in fori
the Senate that he did not wish t
say anything which was calculated t
prejudice their judgment in th
matter. Whatever was done by tl
Senate ho wanted to havo dono in n
open way, and when, under tho rule
he retired from the Senate Chambo:
ho wished his friends to seo that tl:
votes of all Senators should be r
corded on the journal, so that tl
poople could understand what sort i
mon are now legislating for then
nnd what sort of times we are livir.
in. He wanted them to see that tl
charges upon which he was to I
tried were not the real ch ar g
which had been preferred again
him, but wore based on the fact th
he was opposed to the revolutions^
measures and schemes of the Senate
opposed to the plundering of tl
State treasury whioh was going o:
and opposed to the character of tl
present organization of the Goner
Assembly. This was why tho Sena
wanted- > to i have I bim expelled, ai
thia he well understood, and Won
see that he had his rights. [A
planee in the gallery.] He was n
speaking to curry-favor, but to s
himself I right before the oountr
Under-lying all Governments, w
the beautiful principle of equal ai
exact justice to ail men; but the
men who preferred these oharg
against him knew nothing of i
workings. The whole obarge whii
bad been tramped up against hi
was fostered by two men (Rando!]
and Corbin) who desired to vie t
great impeacher Ashley, and th?
zeal and anxiety to gain a roputatii
I r I in --- i i -
os impcsjhers waa inducing them to
pursue their present course. ..Sir,"
Raid Mr. Leslie, addressing himself
to the President, "I can see tho fu?
turo, and in it I see plainly that this
Sonato and the House, as now con?
stituted, cannot stand; and it is for H
thc expression of such an idea as this
that I am to be expelled. Bat, be?
fore I go, I call ou the people of
South Carolina to' observe the men
who, to-day, are driving out and
suppressing every spirit of liberty."
Mr. Leslie then proceeded to show
up Corbin-h?w he had pretended to
great friendship for him (Leslie;)
had, night after night, been in his
room, planning how dust could bo
thrown into the eyes of his negro
colleagues, by preparing a substitute
for the objectionable discrimination
bill, and how', by hie mean manipu?
lations, Corbin had already saccee ded
in securing five different offices for
himself, and was expecting a sixth.
At this stage of his speech, Mr.
Leslse was gagged by a point of
order, ostensibly because "he. was
dealing in personalities, and, rather
than submit to the unfairness of the
so-called Senate, he asked leave to
retire without further remark. He
then started ont of the Senate cham?
ber, but returned to his seat, and, in
a very composed way, begged to say
ono word more. He then remarked,
in a dignified and earnest way: "This
Senate has refused to hear me fairly,
to-day; they will hear from me else?
Ho retired, amidst great applause
from the audience, the larger portion
of which followed him into the
street and cheered him for his exhi?
bition of manliness and independ?
The Senate then proceeded with
the debate, and Corbin, Randolph,
Wright and others spoke in favor of
tho resolution, saying, in general
terms, that Leslie was a disgrace to
the Senate and. should long' since "
have been expelled. They failed,
however, to show anything against
him, except that he had handled them
without gloves, whenever they had
attempted any of their revolutionary
schemes, and, so weak were their
speeches and transparent their real
motive in seeking Leslie's expulsion,,
that, when the resolution was brought
to a vote, it failed. to pass, notwith?
standing the vigor?os application of
the party lash and the earnest ap?
peals made to the passions of the
negro Senators by. the extremists.
An effort was then made to pass a
resolution of censure and to suspend
Mr. Leslie, bat, before a conclusion
was reached, the hoar of adjourn?
In the afternoon, when tho Senate
re-assembled, the whole matter was
postp lidd until Monday. The
feeling against Leslie is very intense,
bnt it is not likely that anything will
bo done to him, as he is a little too
brave and influential to be tampered
Lost evening three or four hun?
dred citizens, who had heard of Mr.
Leslie's independent course, called
upon him, at Nickerson's Hotel, and
invited him to say to the public, in
defence of his course, who i the Sen?
ate had refused to hear., He accept?
ed, and delivered a . speech ..that
created a stir in the radical. camp
the effects of which will be felt by
the hybrids for a long time to come.
With clear, logical precision, ho re?
viewed the legislation of the great
unlawful, pointing ont, with- merci-,,
less coolness, bow all that had been
done was in the interest of the car
pot-bag fraternity, and for the.accu?
mulation of spoil. Whittemoro,
Corbin, and that ilk, were held np to
view as mere office hunters, and
office holders, who loved the negro
only for the sake of his vote; and
the utter incompetency of the |black
people to make laws was portrayed
with a fidelity that laid bare in ft mo?
ment tho enormous absurdity which
is being perpetrated in Jan noy 's
new State House. Mr. Leslie's
speech, throughout, though consis?
tently Republican in its tone* waa
characterized by a frankness which
won the continued applause of his
hearers. It it. evident that he j.s
thoroughly disgusted with the rotten
concern he is in, and, though sacri?
ficing no prinoiple represented by the
party which sent him to the Senate,
he is a firm believer in the doctrine
that a white man in South Carolina
has still some rights left which a
negro is bound to respect.
