ALABAMA SENATORS QU A im KLING OVKH
.rm-: SPOILS.-The two AI nb a in fi Senators
have bad a slight unpleasantness about
tho loaves and fish.?.- in their State.
Spencer was after tho collectorohip of
Mobile for a particular friend, and War?
ner had an oyo to tho identical position
for a political rotaiuor. The consequence
was a dead lock. Grant know not what
to do, and Boutwcll aud Delano were
bothered which of tho two Senatorial
magnates should be appeased. At length,
it'is said, the difflonlty was adjusted by
an agreement that Warner should get
tho colleotorship, whilo Spencer should
be accorded the postmustersbip of Mo?
bile. The first part of tho agreement
was promptly put in force and Warner's
friend appointed; but when it came to
airanging the postmostership, u hitch
occurred. Warner claimed that post
also, and Cresswell, it is said, yielded
to his demands. Thereupon Spencer
went to tho Whito House to raiso a row
about the alleged breach of agreement.
He had a talk with Grant, and, it is
said, hauled "Ulysses over tho coals very
warmly. Ho next went to the Post Of?
fice Department, and pitched into thc
jolly Cresswell, tho result being that
Cresswell consented to give the post
mastership to Spencer instead of War?
ner. But just os this result was reached
Warner happened to drop in and inter?
rupt tho interview; and hearing of what
had occurred, Warner demanded that
thc appointment should be changed.
Spencer interposed lively objections.
Questions and answers of au unpleasant
character were exchanged between the
Senators, and for a time there appeared
a very cheering prospect of a row. lt
stopped short of blows, however, and
the Senators have since had a chanco
to cool off.

Mn. EDITOR: The vetoeing aud par?
doning powers are dangerous nod tempt?
ing clements of great strength vested in
tho Executive, under the Constitution of
South Carolina; it creates in him A ONE
MAN, a political lever of gigantic propor?
tions; and, with such leugth iu the
hands of au unscrupulous partisan chief,
ho may usc it with extraordinary and
telling effect in prizing out any opposi?
tion to his own peculiar views and self
aggrandizement, either pecuniarily 01
politically. In a closo legislative con?
test, in tho passage of any railroad bill
or other important measure, the Execu?
tive may place his veto in tho market
subject to tho highest bidder, lending
his siguatnre to dollars and cents, and
not to principle; the same may apply tc
a closo political struggle. With thu
unrestrained pardoning power, he coule
or may control thu ballot-box with n wei
organized baud of ruffians, with iuatruc
lions, if need be, to munler auy oppos
ing candidate or voters of an adverse
faction, rather than shnxo defeat, will

party hirelings might be guilty of. Wit]
this power, he may open the doors of i
prison, turn the keys of the Penitentiary
and fix tho destiny of the State througl:
tho agency of felons.
As to the veto power, there is some se
curity against an undue abuse under tin
two-thirds rule of tho Legislature, bu
the pardoning power is pleuury and irre
vocable. It may be said that it is im
possible to frame a constitution, or ti
enact such laws as may subserve ever;
purpose, but when an evil or a danger

such glaring deformity upon tho oonsti

A Horrible Grim?.
The Grenada (Mian.) Sentinel, of Moy
22, relates the following' fearful hiato*?:
The city waa thrown into th? wildes!
excitement, on Monday morning last, at
the recital of one of the moat, brutal
murders ever recorded in the- annals of
crime, whioh had occurred across the
Abetnpoubonge tho night previous. In
a short timo the whole town was loud in
the denunciation of the deed, and could
tho perpetrators have Usen known, they
would have met with summary'punish
ment at the bands of on outraged com?
munity. It seems that, on Satnrday
night, about midnight, some one knocked
nt the door of tba ferryman. Mr. John
Futhey, and asked to be crossed over to
tho city for tho purpose of securing thu
assistait co of a physician. Pleas Futbey
opened the door, when he was instantly
seized by two strong men, and dragged
out. lu tho moaotime three men move
entered tho house and pulled John Fu?
they from his bed by tho legs, dragging
him ont also. It appears that out of tho
five men, who were all white, ono was
disguised ns an African. The two men
wero forcibly taken along until the cross
roads were reached, when each party
took a different direotiou. As soon as
John Futhey was taken ho commenced
to Btrugglo with his captors, and made
what feeblo resistanco hu could ngainst
them. Finding him determined, the
party of assassins threw a looped rope
about the neck of tho unfortunate vic?
tim and dragged him in this manner
about 400 yards, when they commenced
to whip and otherwiso abuse him nntil
life was extinct. Tho supposition is that
the whipping was done with a rawhide.
While this was going on, the other parties
held Pleas Futhey securely in their
hands, about thirty yards from where
his brother was being tortured, and forci?
bly made to bo a listener to his lamenta?
tions without being able to assist him.
After the brutal work was done, the
party let Pleas go, with threats that if ho
ever divulged the names of any of the I
assassins they would serve him like they ?
had tho brother. The deceased was an
inoffensive, weak old mun, almost ready
to step iuto his grave, one whom the
community cared very little for, and so
insignificant thot nona can conjecture
what brought him such terrible punish?
ment. Some suppose it must have been
for his money, as ho is supposed to have
hud several thousand dollars in gobi hid
away. But wo doubt this, because the
parties who killed him, after the murder
was committed, made no attempt to find
tho supposed treasure.
Others believed that the parties who
murdered him only iuteuded to chastise
him nud lut him go; while still auother
conjecture is that they intended to whip
tho secret of his hidden treasure out of
him, uud, that before they could do that
the victim died. Tho body of tho mur?
dered mau shows tbnt the whipping was
cruel boyoud comprehension, and that
the suffering must hnve been horrible.
Tho militar}' have arrested R. li. Cha?
tham, Clem. Edgar aud Bob Wilson, nil
men of good character in this communi?
ty, ou suspicion of being implicated in
this dark chapter of crime. These gen?
tlemen are nil well and respectably con?
nected, and we trust will soon be able to
prove nn alibi.
DECORATION DAY-WHY IT WAS A FAH.
URB.-The Times has a sensible und I
truthful article showing why tho decora- j
tion of tho soldiers' graves, tho other ]
day, was a failure:
"As a military display, it challenged
no particular notice. As an attempt to i
organize and consecrate a new national !
ceremony-to dedicate a day to the |
memory of tho dead, in the name of the j
cause for which they died-it command- j
ed little support. However creditable I
the motives in which the movement
originated, it is apparent that the move?
ment did not commend itself to the
judgment or foldings of tho country.
"Decoration Daj-, as it has been inau?
gurated, is a day that can never become
national. It is an appeal to the patriots
of ono section, at the expense of the
pride nud feelings of the other pection.
It is a memorial of the triumph of
Northern loyalty over Southern rebellion.
It is a method of reminding tho North
that it is a conqueror, and the South
that it is conquered, lt is an attempt to
convert even tho graves of tho dead into
testimony affecting tho history of mil?
lions who aro living. As managed by
reverend gentlemen hore nud at Wash?
ington, and elsewhere, it is an occasion
for heaping epithets of infamy upon one
set of graves, while piling Howers upon
another set-for reviving tho bitter me?
mories of conflict, scattering afresh the
seeds of bate, aud under tho pretense of
glorifying Union heroes, invoking curses
upon tho misguided, but scarcely less
heroic, Confederate dead. Such a cere?
mony might have had its uses in tho
midst of war; but it is incompatible with
the restoration of peace-utterly incom?
patible with that renewal of cordial feel?
ings between tho people of the two sec?
tions, which alone can impart lasting vi?
tality and strength to tho Union. And
Decoration Day, ns wo now have it, is
an ostentatious display of tho trophies
of victorious war, which tends to beget
a dictatorial and aggressive spirit on one
side, and feelings of humiliation and re?
venge on the other. To a festival admit?
ting of this construction, and marred by
these tendencies, the generosity and I
good seuse of the country will not be j
Tho Norfolk papers record a shocking
caso of homicide. The daughter of Mr.
John Murray, a stone-mason, was se?
duced by a young man named Alexander
Perry. Maddened at his wrong, Murray
made a desperate attack on Perry, who
shot bim dead with a double barrel gun.
Perry delivered himself up to tho au?
thorities, aud was released on bail.

, Wo copy the following from the New
York Herald: .........
NEW YOUR, Juno 1, 1869.
5fb *A? Editor of Hie Herald: Evente are
culminating which must speedily bring
about a solution Of the question whether
Great Britain intends to indemnify this
country for the losses to her shipping
and commerce committed by vessels of
war bnilt and partially equipped by Bri?
tish subjects in English ports, und, ns it
now appears from the written statement
of the builders, opeuly and notoriously
built with tho knowledge and under the
veryJejes Of her Majesty's responsible
advisers. The facts now established
simplify the question and Hweep away all
tho intricacies and technical difficulties
with which legal he.nmen aud a perverted
construction of the British Enlistment
Act had smothered and surrounded it.
England hus always sought to justify thc
non-seizure of these vessels in her native
and colonial ports, upon tho ground that
the provisions of her municipal act did
not euipr v. er her to adopt such a course.
Earl R isse 1, then first miuister ol
tho crown, ha* recently discovered thal
the fault lay upon tho temporary inca
pacity of his legal adviser. The cele?
brated "Alexandra" case was tried in thc
hope of vindicating tho impotency o
British law. It was a sham trial.
England has indulged iu sham trial.;.
To gratify this third Napoleou, Dr. Der
nord wes indicted for conspiring in Eng
land with Orsini to assassinate tin
French Emperor. Lord Palmerston iu
trodnced au ex post facto law to moot tin
emergency. Parliament rejected it upoi
tho principle, nolumus Ip.ges Anglice mu
tari, and his administration collapsed
An obsolete, dusty Act was exhume?
which had no application to the case, tin
jury refused to conviot, the Empnror wa
appeased, and tho law remained as be
foro, powerless to punish the offence.
England vaunted to America and t
France, "Look, wo have endeavored t
enforce our laws, but we are unable t
punish the authors of the wrougs o
whieh you complain." Assuming, how
ever, that tho provisions of the Britis
enlistment Act, honestly enforced, di
not reach the offence committed by th
Lairds and others in building, equippin
and arming vessels for tho open and pa
pable object of preying piratically upo
tho commerce of a country then i
peace with England, what was the conn
which, had tho friendship of Ruglan
been sincere and impartial, she migl
1 allude to a point in this great que:
tiou which, according to my recollectioi
has not been mentioned by the press <
either country-certainly not prominen
ly mentioned-iu tho course of the di
cussion. If thc statement of tho Messr
Lairds be true, tho Government wa
made aware that the Alabama was bein
constructed to carry out tho objects
afterwards accomplished. Without asl
iug an admittedly incompetent law oiric
to peruse the provisions of their mun
pal Act and advise whether the guil
enterprise was in violation of the ne
trality laws, tho Government of its ov
authority might havo seized the vessc
in the course of their construction,'
interdicted their egress from any of th?
ports, and have applied to Purliumo
for indemnity. Precedents for such i
act are innumerable. In tho case of pu
lie and international wrongs, not pt
hibited by positive enactment, such
course hus frequently been pursued, ai
Parliament has never refused its i
demnity. Eugland would have done
with respect to France or any other E
ropeau power, and why not with respe
to the United States?
I was in my placo in tho House
Commons when, in a thin and inattc
tivo assembly, Lord Johu Russell a
uonnced that ho bad advised the Que
to issue a proclamation according bel
gereut rights to the seceded Southe
Thoughtful men deemed tho step ha:
and premature. It was not, as I th
believed, intended ns an act inimical
this country, but it produced incalen
ble mischief and prolonged tho fratri
dal war. Amoug the aristocratic a
wealthier classes a strong feeling of p
tiality to tho South was evinced, n
mauy, when they subscribed to Con fe
rnto loans, risked (heir money on I
hope that tho great republic would cru
bl?) into fragments.
In addition to the strong grounds
ready existing to claim ample in deni n
for the losses thus sustained, I vent
to think that tho nou-ndoption of
course suggested strengthens tho pt
lion, and through tho medium of y<
i columns I submit it to the public.
