THJB MISSING CONFEDERATE RE?
CORDS.-In bis article on the flight of
Jefferson Davis, in tho current num?
ber of Packard's Monthly, Mr. E. A.
Pollard makea the remarkable state?
ment, that the bulk of the valuable
documents of the Confederate Go?
vernment, including tho correspon?
dence of Jefferson Davis, exists to?
day in concealment; that many days
before tho fall of Richmond, there
iras a careful selection of important
papers, especially those in tho office
of the President, and letters which
involved confidences in tho North and
in Europe, and that these were se?
cretly conveyed ont of Richmond,
and deposited in a placo whero they
remain concealed to this time, and
.will probably not bo unearthed in
ibis generation. Where is this re?
pository of the secrets of the Con?
federate Government, Mr. Pollard is
not prepared to say.
He has repeatedly sought access
to these papers, out of historical cu?
riosity, but he has been invariably
met with the explanation, that while
thia indulgence might be allowed him
for such legitimate purpose, it would
be unsafe for private reasons, and
the information, if published, might
be productive of serious conse?
quences to persons of importance yet
living, and within the jurisdiction of
the Government. It hus been im?
possible to surmount this objection,
and thero is no doubt that many of
these papers' do really involve dis?
coveries of som? curious negotiations
in the war, the parties to which might
astonish the public.
Mr. Pollard mentions the case of a
siDgle secret dooumunt which he was
once permitted to see in Richmond,
wherein certain parties offered to as?
sist the Confederacy, by supplying
its Western armies for a whole year
from the granaries and magazines of
the North. Such important letters
and other secret, papers, (says Mr.
Pollard,) still exist, vero preserved
from the wreck and firoof Richmond,
and at this moment ure kept in a
manner and place which render them
secure against discovery, loss or mu?
The mysterious information which
Mr. Pollard thus communicates, is
much more agreeable than the belief
whioh we bad before entertained that
the papers in question bad perished.
We can testify that, on tho capture
of Richmond, the offices of the Con?
federate Government were found to
have been carefully stripped of every
document which was thought impor?
tant, and that the rebel arohives now
preserved at Washington, aro of very
little historical value, indeed.

THU BRIDGE TO BROOKLYN.-On
Monday ovening, the Common Coun?
cil of Brooklyn voted to subscribe, on
behalf of tho city, for ?3,000,000 ont
of tho ?5,000,000 of the capital stock
of the company whioh lins undertaken
to build a suspension bridgo over tho
East River between New York and
Brooklyn. Its successful completion
will be witnessed at no distant day.
The new bridge will start on this
sido from ii point near tho Register's
office, in tho City Hall Park, and
will st riki) tho other side of tho East
River, nt the corner of Sands and
Washington streets. Its largest
span, or reach, will bo 1,600 feet,
which is nearly 600 foot longer than
that of tho bridgo over tho Ohio
Rivor at Cincinnati, and nearly 800
feet longer than that of tho Niagara
Fulls bridge. Its total length will bo
a little over u mile, and its width
eighty feet, admitting of tho passago
of 200,000 persons daily.

San Franoisoo bas to pay $31,300
for permitting mobs to smash SCTTS
paper offices during the war.
We bare splendid news from
Washington. General Grant, in?
stead of waiting for the hour of his
new offiae, announces a "policy" thut
will do more good than a thousand
orntien:;. 2o demanda ??otu Con?
gress honesty and economy. Tbe
timo to equandor hos ceased; and if
our easy-going Representatives lin?
ton * to vote millions for every plau
,c li tune, it must bo done over
uie veto of thc. new President. This
simple declaration will suvn millions
to a depleted Treasury. We must
pay our debts before iucurriug new
ones, and especially we must stop
the wholesale waste of money and
lands covered by the mnuy railroad
schemes. Wo accept Gen. Grant's
declaration in tho joyful hopo that
wo have seen nn end of real estate
speculations in the unprofitable do?
minions of other countries-of im?
mense "lawyer's fees" for Washing?
ton lobbyists-of land grants and
Indian treaties, and of the astound?
ing frauds in tho collection of the
customs and taxes. Let economy be
tho word, nnd the country will re?
spond? Any Cougressmnn who pre?
sumes to stund in the way will be re?
buked by tho people. Gen. Grant is
right, nnd tho nation will givo him
an enthusiastic support.
Wo look for bis coming as mon
who guzo through tho darkest night
and fervently yearn for morning.
This is a sign of the coming day, and
wo feel assured that it will be a day
of glorious and beneficent works, of
economy, honesty and peace.
[New York Tribune.
After near half a century's strug?
gle with lawyers aud courts, Mrs.
Gen. Gaines finds herself compelled
to appeal to Congress for tho im?
peachment of a judge, whom sho
charges with attempts to extort
money from her as the prico of jus?
tice. New Orleans officers of all sorts
are in bad odor just now, and this
particular one bas been the subject
of ugly tales before; but for the
credit of the United States Courts,
we trnst there may be some error in
the report. We are used to unjust
Stato judges; but wo have still hoped
that justice might find a sanctuary iu
tho courts of tho National Govern?
meut. If these ehurges be really
preferred by responsible parties, ou
credible evidence, we pray Congress
to lose no time in investigating tho
case, and-if it be proved that a high
trust hus been thus shamefully dese?
crated-in visiting the severest and
swiftest penalty npou the culprit.

SERIOUS AFFRAY AT GREENWOOD.
On Saturday afternoon last, a num?
ber of men, more or less under the
influence of ardent spirits, created
considerable disturbance in that gen?
erally quiet village. The marshal of
the place, Capt. John G. Boozer, en?
deavored to induce them to dis?
perse. A young man named Benson
threatened to shoot bim. Boozer
knocked him down. On recovery
from his full, Benson drew his revol?
ver, but he was prevented by Boozer
from shooting, Boozer nsing his
knife very effectually in self defence,
and inflicting several very dangerous
wounds. These are tho facts as we
learn them.-Abbeville Banner.
CAPTURE OF NED JACKSON.-This
man, noted as the murderer of Robert
R. Suggs, in March last, was captur?
ed at this place on Tuesday last, and
turned over to the proper authorities.
It will bo remembered that Suggs
was killed in a most cold-blooded
manner, inside of his own house,
near Gee's Mill, the murderer being
within a few feet of him. When
captured, Ned tried to make resist?
ance, being well Rimed, but tho stout
arm of the law was too much for
him. A pistol and knife were taken
from hi.s person.
SUDDEN DEATH.-On Tuesday night
of last week, Henry Cobb cunio to
bis death near War nook Crooning, on
the railroad, three miles East of this
place. A jury of inquest Was empan
neled Wednesday morning, by John
Wilson, Esq., acting coroner, and
rendered a verdict that ho died from
intoxication. The deceused for many
year? held the positiou of road car?
penter on the Greenville Railroad, and
was always regarded as a peaceable
citizen and reliable workman. Ile
leaves a family to mourn nus un t; moly
A house, near Pleasant Valley, N.
Y., occupied by a family named
Adams, caught lire from some un?
known causo, during the absence of
both Adams and bis wife, on Tuesday
afternoon, and wan entirely con?

CON YA T. KS crc M'rc.-Af tor a disease
lias boon conquorcd, thoro is Htill tho
weakness that it leaves behind it to bo
removed. Convalescence is a tedious af?
fair. If the enfcoblod and flaccid mus?
cl?e, tho shattered nerve tho thin and
watery blood could speak, they would cry
for help. In too many caaes ouch help as
is given them is not of tho right kind. Thc
fiery stimulants of commerce do barm.
They kindle a temporary flame, which is a
mockery. Their effect passes, and the last
state of bim who uses them is woree than
the first. Not such is tho effect of HOS
TETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS. There
is no drawback to its toning properties. It
has been found THE GREAT MEDICINE
OP THE AGE for sustaining and bracing
up tho enfeebled constitution-no matter
bow much debilitated-its it not only be?
stows strength, but soothes the nervous
system and allays all excitement of thc
bram. Willie this excellent preparation
possesses such cf?cctivo properties, it is
perfectly safe and is agreeable to the taste.
Attempt* havo been mado to rival it.
Thoy havo failed. Can it bo necessary to
say why they have failed? Ask tho recover?
ed dyspeptics, bilious snfTcrers, victims
of fever and ague and nervous subjocts,
who have experienced its effects, what they
think ot it. Ask TUEM, and bo guided by
what thoy say.
As a household medicine it is available
