majority. This intelligence is nil the

was unexpected. Tho heavy Ropub

SPARTANBURG.-The entire vote of
tho County is 3,462-the Democrats
polling 2,770 and tho Bepnblicans

A correspondent writes:
"Oar District, all quiet-no riot
nov oven a disturbance in any part of
tho District. Nor have we had any
troops to mnko Us behave Governor
Scott need not obnrge D-mocrats
with being lawless, as Spartanburg is
moro thoroughly Democratic than
any District in the State, and has had
a more quiet and orderly election day
without oeing garrisoned."

Tho Freedmen's Bureau reports
that tho expenditures in South Caro?
lina during tho past year were $195,
500, besides 289,000 used in buying
subsistence stores issued to planters,
with a lien ou their crops. Bonds
were taken from the planters for this
lost amount, nearly or quite all of
which will be collected before New
Year's. .The crops this year aro tole?
rably good, and all who were indus?
trious have now abundant moans of
support. There is not much trouble
botwetui employers and employed.
The freedmen are, in all material re?
spects, much better off than they
were last year. The total number of
sick treated during the year was 55,
000, of whom one-fifth were whites.
Great attention lins been paid to
school matters. The number of teach?
ers is 123; pupils 6,698. The bureau
has spent $50,000 on school buildings
during the year.
Now that Gen. Grant is elected
President for the next four years, has
begun tho discussion as to whether
his words, "let us have peace," are
to be carried ont by acts that will
promptly inaugurate that much-to

the olive branch be substituted for
the sword?" cr will tho harsh terms

ROVING ROYALTY. - Never before
has Europe contained so many dis
carded or disinherited sovereigns. To
say nothing of mere heirs to royalty
such us the Comte de Chambord, the
Comte do Paris, the Count de Moute
molin and the father of the Emperor
of Austria, we have the two ex
Qnecns of Spaiu, the ex-Kings of
Holland, of Naples, of Greece, and
till recently of Bavaria also, thc ex
King of Hanover, the banished Grand
Dnke of Tuscany, besides a host of
minor dukes nod electors, once reg
nant in Italy and Germany. In fact
the whole continent is~iilled with
liviug warnings to unworthy royalty
aud roaming memorials of tho insta
bility of human greatness.
It is said that the returning omi
grants to Ireland now amount to
ono-tbird of tho outgoing, and the
ratio is constantly, though slowly
increasing. This is duo mainly to
tho increasing prosperity nnd ad
vanced tfqg?s among the Irish peo
pie, and thc'most hopoful friends of
ireland look to thc gradual eqooUza
tiou of wages on both sides of the
water to stop emigration altogether
The United States are not likely
howevor,#to feel tho want of it, sinco
that from Germany is largely on th
increase, and the contemplated cs
tablishmcut of steamship lines with
tho Baltic ports will .soon start an
other and entirely new emigration

Not ono mon in fifty who carries

indispensable part of tho meal, stops

And this necessity for newspapers
has been of growth so gradnul that
tho public has failed to appreciate
tho vast increaso in the machinery of
"paper-ranking" to sptiefy tho greatly
increased demand. Porty years ago,
tho newspaper that to-day is ns neces?
sary as the morning'.-* washing or the
breakfast of every town mau, was a
luxury indulged in by tho few. Tho
journal itself was a sheet the size of
I a pocket-handkerchief, its news was
not quite a mouth old, and its typo?
graphical beauty brought back the
early days when "the Devil first
taught tho art to Doctor Faustus,"
or, at least, when Benjamin Franklin
laborious worked bis onc-uinn-power
Fifty years ago. thc newspaper
man was bis own editor, type-setter,
pressman, office bo3', proof-reader,
foreman, reporter, book-keeper anil
correspondent. Except in the latter
case-which is still rigidly adhered
to in many offices-avery thing is ut?
terly changed. Tho corps of a great
daily, in a large city, is as thorough?
ly organized and about ns mimerons
as a regiment in the field. Euch edi?
tor, reporter, critic aud writer in
every branch, bas bis own clearly de?
fined duties; and bo must perform
theso with unfailing promptitude ano
precision. A general controlling spiril
combines theso varying masses and
fuses them into thc amalgam, we ac
cept as so satisfactory and think sc
Tho mechanical part, too, that put;
this material into form, bears little
trace of the parent system. Tin
magic wand of progress bas wnvet
over the printing press, and its bun
dred wheels and bands and cylinder;
fly before tho heath of steam in i
way that would cause a Guttenbnrj
to grow yellow with astonishment.
In "tho good old times," the pay?
ment for a paper was, as Jiulh/ Hot
(om hath it, "Bless us, a thing o
naught!" Tho editor of nil worl
took payment (wheu bc could get it
in kind. Ho would receive chickens
eggs, cabbages and garden sass, ovo
his counter in exchango for tho lumi
nary be banded across it. Cord
wood, peanuts aud knit socks wer
currenoy to bim; and in many ouse
he had to wait for these till the
either grew or were made to order.
Take tho system of a great daily c
the present, with its news from ever
quarter-its gossip from Pekin, il
acourato history of tho row in tb
back alley, its perfect biography <
the "wickedest man" in ita city; tl
reliable quotations of sale five m
?utes before in Liverpool, and i
thoughtful leaders upon vital que
tions of the hour.
"What is it but a map of busy li

And then reflect upon the gre
power of such a journal, conductc
on principles of perfect fairness ar
as perfect fearlessness. Tho ?re
metropolitan journals of New Yoi
are very kings among their peopl
and the tribute they demand is pa
promptly and ungrudgingly. F<
the city man knows the valuo of h
paper, its great power to aid him ai
to return every dollar bo pays it
hundred-fold. Ho knows it ls a coi
plicated machine thnt eats up mon
with insatiato maw; and he willing
gives his mite-among ten thousai
-that it may lack no sustenance ai
keep its vigor and its power to bc
him unimpaired. But even tho ci
mau who advertises by the $10,0C
does not know all the thousand lea
by which the means of a great da
trickle off. How singular will it sou
to our readers then, if we tell thc
that a paper like the Herald co;
daily-for composition, paper, te
grams, pay of workmen, editors, e<
respondents and reporters-from fv
thousand to five thousand dollars?
And this is the great secret of 1
wonderful success of such a paper-I
great secret of its power-that it 1
the circulation to demand this gr
daily outlay. With that circulate
aud with that influence, such a jour
can be entirely independent, lt <
act np to the axiom of all nowa
pcrs, that it asks no favors, but gi
u quid pro quo for anything it recoil
and it can take a proper and in
pendent position that makes its
fioionoy ten-fold. Another great
suit of this avowed understand
botweeu paper and patron, is
cheapening tho former one-half, j
Herald, with its twelve orowi
pages running over with news, f.
sip, criticism and thought, can
sold for less than the price of a d;
in a Southern city; and why? brea
the Herald can demand prompt
imedinte payment for all the wor
doe?; and thus simplifying it? it
cato machinery, reduce the cost
running it. When tho daily on
of the Herald is greatest, its inc?
is proportionately inoreased; for
A. T. Stuart, Bonner, or Helmb
the Bucha king himself, can opel
columns without the open seaann
greenbacks in advance.
This, then, is the great differi
between those mighty engine* of
news in the North nnd the provincial
Sross of tho Sooth-that while the
"orthorn paper is independent and
remnnorativo by its very ection, thc
Southern journal is cramped and
strained until it becomes in Rome sort
I a beggar.
Ana this marked difference will
continue until our people IC-??I ilmt
to have a good thing they must pay
for it; and that t_ bo effective in its
1 sentiments or its business uses, a pa?
per must be perfectly independent,
not only in tono, but in hard, mate?

Ku KLUX.-A horrible outrage was
committed somewhere iu tho Statu of
Arkansas, n few days ago. Our in?
formant is a reliable colored man,
who heard the particular.* from u
member o? tho "loyal league," who
?;ot his information from a fellow who
ost a cousin in tho late war. It
seemed that a Mr. Carpet-Bugger was
attacked in his own boase by 1,032
Kn Kluxers, armed with double-bar?
reled bowie-knives. They slaughtered
and ate ninctoeu of Mr. Bagger's
children before his oyes, and "com?
pelled Mrs. Bagger to eut her own
Sicnd off, and hang it on a book iu
tho cellar. She was then ordered to
keop still upon pain of instant death.
Sho happened to sneeze, and the
leader of tho dastardly crow imme?
diately had a thrashing machine set
up and run Mrs. Bagger through.
It's very doubtful if sho recovers.
Mr. Bagger was then forced to swal?
low four tons of gunpowder and a
handful of nitro-glycerine. Ho was
next dieted on live coals until un ex?
plosion took place, which subjected
Mr. Bagger to such intense pain as
to almost deprive him of reason. Tho
iiends then shot him full of holes,
made him hurrah for Jefferson Davis
and Horace Groeloy, and finally in?
oculated him with the small pox,
and soaked him with strong lye. He
was threatened with iustunt death if
ho revealed tho names of any of tin
perpetrators of this outrage, all ol
whom are neighbors of Mr. Bugger,
and who - bato him because Mr. Ii.
was a lo3*al sutler and cotton specula
tor during thc war, and now lives on
a confiscated plantation, with enougl
niggers to elect him to thc Legisla
ture. It is feared that Mr. Baggei
has sustained such internal injurie'
that he will not be able to appear a:
a witness at the military commissioi
appointed to try some ex-rebels foi
