The Religions Riots In Londonderry.
The Orangemen and Roman Catholics of
Londonderry haye been quarreling to their
hearts' content-or, rather, os ferociously as
they could reasonably have expected to be
allowed to do. There is a point at which
tho military authorities cannot well avoid
tba unpleasant duty of interfering with the
favorito recreation of the inhabitants of
Ulster, brit os we learn that the riot had as?
sumed "fearful proportions" before it was
suppressed, we may suppose it may be re?
garded an a success from the Irish point of
view. We do not leam what was the origin
of this fresh outbreak of the long and stand?
ing feud between the Protestants and Ro?
man Catholics of the Maiden City, but we
aro probably safe in assuming that either
some rabid Orangeman gave utterance to
sinister anticipations as to the prospects of
Pius IX in the next world, or that some fer?
vid Roman Catholic expressed himself dis?
respectfully with regard to King William
ILT, of glorious, pious, and immortal mem?
ory. It tokes very little time among snob
belicoso theologians as those of Ulster for a
personal "argument" to develop into a gen?
eral row, and yesterday it seems that the
contest grew so fierce ?bat nothing but a
volley from the military availed to separate
the opposing parties-"fighting like devils
for conciliation, snd hating one another for
the love of God."
We hear again, with regret, of the renew?
al of these wretched broils, which reflect
discredit on all concerned-on whichever
party may happen to bo the aggressor, on
their opponents, who are so ready to resort
to violence en masse, and on the local autho?
rities, who HU d'or them to proceed to a pitch
at which they cannot be checked without
military force aud the loss ot life. Of course
there will be accusations and counter-accu?
sations bandied about between the two par?
ties as to which shall be held responsible for
the outbreak, and a mutual exasperation
hoe been created, which it will take long to
allay. It is to be hoped that under tho new
order of things in Ireland, tho magistrates
and others charged with tho preservation of
order will become sufficiently imbued with
the spirit of religious tolerance, whatever
Lhoir creeds, to be able to Iring about more
peaceful relations between the members of
the two churches "militant" in Ireland, in?
stead of, as is now too often the case, open?
ly encouraging the fighting propensities of
their respective factions.-New York Times.
A DESTRUCTIVE FLOOD.-The New York
Democrat, of Friday, says:
The fears of destruction hythe rise of the
river have been fully realized by the people
along the Hudson, and a freshet almost
equal in severity to the great inundation of
1?57 has swept away property to an alarm?
ing extent. From all along the banks of
the Hudson and the Mohawk Rivers we have
advices of a remarkable rush of waters, and
intelligence of the demolition of a great deal
of valuable property. From New Hamp?
shire come telegrams of sad destruction of
life and property by the strength and force
of the freshet. In many places railway
trains have been stopped, and serious detri?
ment given to travel. This, with tho fogs
of the night previous, and the severe storm
on tho Sound, hos affected the transport?
ation of passengers very disastrously. Al?
together, these vagaries of the wind and tide
will cause immense damage, in addition to
the great loss of human life.
MOUE SintEws.-Half a dozen scolding
women hold a convention at Washington to
reform themselves out of petticoats, aud one
of them mado a speech reciting the reniions
why Grant ought to mako her a member o?

she was assistant editor on the paper that
first bore tho Grant banner to tho people of
the Stato of New York.

The State ex rel. the Attorney-General vs. the
Acting Mayor and Aldermen of die City of
Charleston- Quo Wan anio.
On hearing tho argumenta in the above
named proceeding, and upon mature con?
sideration thereof, it is ordered that the re?
spondents, the acting Mayor and Aldermen
of the City of Charleston, do forthwith, and
npon pain of contempt of this Court, vacate
the several offices of Mayor and Aldermen
of the said city, now by them held, and do
forthwith deliver to Gilbert Pillsbury and
the other relators named in the above-stated
case, all and singular the books and proper?
ty, and all other things pertaining to these
several offices os aforesaid, and that they do
henceforth abstain from doing or perform?
ing, or assuming, or protending to do, or

Let a copy of this judgment be served on
Witness my hand and the seal of this Court,

MAY 1, 18G9.
In the afternoon a certified copy of the
above judgmeut was served on Mayor Clark,
and upon each of tho Aldermen, whereupon
a meeting of Council was called to discuss
tho oourse proper to be pursued under the
circumstances. At this meeting, through
the advice of their counsel, it was resolved
that no further opposition should be made,
and accordingly, when later in the evening
Mayor Clark received a note from Mr. Pills?
bury demanding, in obedience to tho man?
dates of the Court, a surrender of tho office,
and books and papers pertaining thereto,
at 12, on Monday, the following reply
CHARLESTON, May 1, 1869.
Hon. Gilbert Pillsbury, Mayor elect.-Sin:
Your favor of this date is to hand, and the
contents daly considered. In reply, I will
say that whilst it was my desire to hold, on
Tuesday evening next, one more meeting of
Council, in order to close up some unfin?
ished business, still, as it is your wish, I
will, at 12 o'clock M., on Monday, the 3d
instant, turn over to you tho possession of
tho office of Mayor of this city, in obedience
to the results of tho law. Respectfully,
G. W. CLARK.
To-day, ut 12 o'clock, Mayor Clark and
the Acting Board of Aldermen will vacate
their offices and surrender them to Mr.
Pillsbury and tho Aldermen elect. A re?
quest wus made by Mayor Clark to be al?
lowed to hold a meeting of his Council, on
Tuesday night, to wind up some unfinished
business, which wus, however, refused.
Rumor is rifo as to the probable policy of
tho new Mayor, the general burthen of which
is that there will be a very clean sweep
among the city officials, to make room for
tho hungry supporters of Mr. Pillsbury.
There are quito a number of lean bottom
rails that will havo to be placed in position,
and it is probable that the palling down will
commence at once. - Charleston Courier.
The Charleston papers, of yesterday,
state that the new Council was duly inau?
gurated at 12 o'clock, on Monday, according
to the programme. The following are the

WITHOUT A GOOD DIGESTION-AU other
temporal blessings are comparatively worthless.
Tho dyspeptic millionaire, who has tried aU the
potions of tho medical profession in vain, and
believes his complaint to be incurable, wonld give
half his fortune to bo freed from the horrors of
indigestion, and thus enabled lo enjoy tho other
half. Of course hs wo-uld.
Perhaps HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS
has boon recommended to such a sofferor. Possi?
bly bo has turned from the friend who made tho
BUggostion with a sneer, intimating that bo has
no failli in any '?patent medicine." If this has
been tho case, so much the worse for him. His
incredulity dooms bim to a Ufe of misery. All the
luxuries which wealth can purchase are at bis
command. Not ono of them can givo him plea?
sure. His own irrational obstinacy in his bano.
Tho vmsser, happily for themselves, aro lose
skeptical. Thero IB such a thing as bigoted unbe?
lief, as well as bigoted credulity, and a golden
moan between the two, which men and women
who are gifted with common sense adopt and
profit by. These aro tho olasB that patronize and
recommend HOSTKTTEO'S BITTEBS. Why do thoy
approve this famous anti-dvspoptic and anti
bilious preparation? Simply because they have
not been too much tho slaves of eenaclcBS preju?
dice lo give it a fair trial, and have found thal
when all other tonics, stimulants and stomachict
tailed, it produced tho desired effect.
"Strike, but hear," said the Roman sage, wher
his ignorant enemies were assailing him. "Doubt
hut try." says the man who has been cured of in
digestion, or biliousness, or intermittent fever, bj
the Bitters, as he relates his experience of th?
medicine to his invalid friends. Whoever is ec
wedded to his own foregone theoretical conclu
sions, as to decline to test the properties of i
niodicino endoreod by the testimony of intelligeu
men in every walk of lifo, and approved by tin
people at large, deserves to suffer.
