Ti in SKIES BRIOHTHIIINO.-Tho skies
begin to look 'brighter fur the white
people of Tennessee. There aro indica?
tions that, tho rudical party ?uda itself
unable to stand up nuder the weight of
the disfranchising law, by which from
50,000 to G?.000 freemen are deprived of
the right to vote-a right possessed- by
every ignorant and debased negro in the
State. Wo Observe that both tho radical
candidates for Governor-Senter and
Stokes-have come ont in favor of a con?
vention to remove all disabilities. Wells,
in Virginia, has aleo been oompelled'to
take grouud against the disfranchising
features of the new constitution. Thus,
eue by one, tho badges of despotism oro
falling from the shoulders of the people
of the South, nnd a returning sonso of
justice ushering in the dawn of the day
of freedom, when we sholl live under
laws made by ourselves, and bring the
reign of.carpet-baggers to un end.
The assessor's returns from four Coun?
ties in South Carolina show some curi?
ous results. Charleston County, which
includes the city, contains 1,634 horses,
1,764 dogs, 396 carriages, and 596 pia?
nos, organs, Sec. Richland County,
which ' includes Columbia, contains 661
horses, 721 dogs, 179 carriages, and 158
pianos, ?ko. Georgetown County con?
tains 306 horses, 571 dogs, 156 carriages,
and 52' pianos. Pickens County con
tains 1,317 horses, 1,023 dogs, 225 car?
riages, and 5 pianos. It is a singular
biit not a favorable foot that the dogs in
all bat one of these Counties outnumber
the horses; nor is it indicative of indus?
trial progress to see tho carriages mono?
polizing so Inrge a proportion of the
horses. However, it must bo taken into
consideration that the war used up a vast
number of horses, nnd the country has
not yet recovered from its prostration
sufficiently to replace its stock. Thc
Charleston Neics says thut in 1860 that
County had 2,747 horses Against 1,684
now; 1,613 mules against 1,240 now; and
39,741 swine against ",600 nt present.
The present assessed value of personal
property in tho County is S8.613.501. In
1860, tho State had 25,673 pleasure car?
riage?, but tho number now is very
small-a fuct which that journal alludes
to as showing bow greatly tho wealth of
that State und city has been diminished.
Tho Grand Army of tba Republic
seems to be losing cast, und is getting
u good many wounds, even iu tho bouse
of its friends. The New York Tribune.
has lately "soured on" the organization
considerably, nud thero are other less
notable defections on nil hand*. This
Grund Array is making n desperate effort
to secure tho control of Federal patron?
age in tho various departments. It is
said that it has appointed a committee
to examine tho clerks, with a view to se?
curing tho dismissal of all who do not
como np to its exalted ideas of patriot?
ism. Tho vacancies, of course, lire to be
filled from tho rank and file of tho Graud
Army, lt is presumed that one of the
questions to be propounded by Ibis in?
quisition will boas follows:
"Would yon tolernto tho decoration of
the gr.tves'of the rebel dead?"
Should there bo any hesitation, nuy
equivocation, anything, in fact, short cf
a prompt und decided negative, the un?
fortunate clerk is doomed, ami speedy
d?capitation will follow.
Having already incurred the obloquy
it so truly merits, as well us tho contempt
of nil respectable people, this Graud
Army of the Republic is now bringing
upon itself tho enmity of both office
seekers, and office-holders! It might sur?
vive tho obloquy and contempt; but it
cannot, loug exist with tho office-seekers
and office-holders arrayed against it. A
more formidable organization could not
THU ALABAMA QUESTION.-In tho de?
bate in tho Houso of Lords on tho 4th
instant, on thu motion of Viscount de
Redcliffe for a copy of tho Johnson
Clarendon treaty, tho Viscount referred
to Mr. Sumner's speech on the treaty us
"an intemperate oration," and "extrava?
gant to a degreo of absurdity," which,
however, he said, had "met with its anti?
dote in the calm judgment ^f the Ame?
rican people." Ho thought if tho Bii
tish Government thought proper to
resume negotiations they would not
have to confront such propositions as
those of Mr. Sumner. He consid?red it
a "base suspicion" that the United States
would "bide its time," aud await u mo
meut of British weakness to dictate
terms. Ho paid a high tributo to Mr.
Motley. Lord Clarendon expressed his
preference of tho first convention,
signed, by Mr. Johnsou nnd Lord Stan?
ley, to that signed by himself and Mr.
Johnson. He thought Mr. Sumner's
speech much to bo regretted, but "too
much stress should not bo laid upon it,
for ho was not a member of tho Govern?
ment, and thero was no reason to believe
that the majority in tho Senate which
voted for it supported either bis extrava?
gant claims or bis statements." Ile.
agreed with the Viscount that the speech
is not sustained by public sentiment in
America. Ho said, however much Eng?
land valued peuce, it valued moro its
national honor. The speaker spoke in a
complimentary manner of Mr. Johnson.
There seems a disposition iu both Go?
vernments to postpone Hie consideration
of tho Alabama question for the present.

How li Fre?a to be Betti pe*-Wtitt M
Victim Bnjri About II.
A victim of Itidinn vengeance arrived
in thia city Saturday night, departing
yesterday for bis hom* in Mooroo Coun?
ty, Hew York. His naroo is Dolo? (J.
Sanbertson, and he lost his scalp ot the
battte of Wasbitn. Perhaps the sensa?
tions experienced by Mr. Sanbertson
will interest and enlighten. Says he:
"I was in the infantry?1 Cnstar had
command of thu troops. There wo*
quito a force of. cavalry with us, but they
wore aboiit a mile in tho reur when we
tirst discovered the reds. Some of thc
troops had boen sent aronnd so us to
attack from tho other side. Tho rods
were camped in a sort of valley, und we
were within eighty rod? of them for half
an hour before daybreak. Just in the
gray of morning, tho firing commenced
on both Bides, and wo bad it nil our own
way for a few minutes, the cursed Snakes
being much confused, and not .knowing
what was up. At length they rallied,
and wo could hear Black Kettle shouting
and ordcriug. The vermiu got into holes
and rocks-anywhere they could find a
place-aud bet in *? fight back with a
will. We fired whenever we could see a
top-knot, aud shot squaws-there was
lots of them-just as quick as Indians.
We just went in for wiping ont tho whol*
gang. When it was fully daylight, we
all gave a big yell, and charged right
down into camp. The'lodges were all a
standing yet, and lots af Indians in
them. As we run through the alleyn, a
big red jumped ont at mo from behind
a tent, and b cf oro I could shorten np
enough to ran him .through with my
bayonet, a squaw -grabbed roo urouud
the legs and twisted me down. The
camp W?S trr??rinll of men fighting, and
everybody seemed yelling as loud UR he
could. When I fell, I went over back?
ward, dropping my gun, and I had just
got part way up nguiu, thesqnaw yanking
mo by tho bair, when tba Indian clubbed
my gun and struck me across tho neck.
Ho might Just ns well have run me
through; but bo wasn't used to the bayo?
net, or didn't think. The blow stunned
me; it didu't burt in the least, but guvu
mo a numb feeling all over. I couldn't
have got to roy leet then if all alone,
while the squaw kept screeching, und
pulling roy bair out by hauds-ful. I
heard some of our boys shouting close
by, aud tho squaw started aud run-on?
of tho boys killing her not three yards
off. The Indian stepped one foot on my
chest, and with his bund gathered np the
hair near tho crown of my head. Hu
wasn't very tender about it, but jerked
roy head this wuy and that, and pinched
like Satan. My eyes were partially open,
and I could seo the bead-work and trim?
ming on bis leggings. Suddenly I felt
tho awfulest biting, cuttiug flash go
round my bead, and thou it seemed to
mo as if roy whole head had been jerked
j clean off I never felt such pain in ?ill
j my life; why, it was like pulling your
i bruins right out. I didu't know auy
j moro for two or three days, and then I
t came to find that I had the sorest bead
of any human that ev?er lived. If tho
boys killed the viper, they didn't get
back my scalp; perhaps it got lost in the
snow. I was shipped dowu to Laramie
j after a bit, and ?ll the nursing I got
j hain't made thu hair grow out on this
i spot yet."-DeU-oil Free Press, June 15.

Wherever he goes now a quadrille is pre
pured to ensnare him, and be is asked to'
lead off iu the act of honor, lt was so
last wuek ut Annapolis, and again this
week at1West Point. And what ia true
of the President, is also true of the Gene?
ral, both of whom would probably face
any other kind of "build" rather than
these, and go through nny amount- of
marching rather than one such "hop."
At Annapolis, wo ?ir.-? told. Graut, instead
of ''lead mg P" in his set, was very .sub?
missively led off. evidently knowing no
moro of the figures, nnd doing them no
bettor, than a "frozen-toed turkey."
Sherman, on tho other hand, was, says
Jenkins, "awkward, ami quito as bold a

marching to tho sea." As for Grunt, says
the same authority, "ho had a snared look
on hits face that moved your heart:"
"Every figure was to him tho Wilder?

Tire ADMISSION OF COLORED PEOPLE To
PLACES OV AMUSEMENT.-The action of
thu Washington City Councils, in regard
to tho admission of colored people to
places of amusement on thc same footing
as the whites, attracts attention through?
out the country, and there sectas lo be
considerable difference of opinion
amongst the Republican press us to the
wisdom of tho course adopted. The
Chicago Tribune, tho leading Republican
paper of tho West, has the following iu
regard to the matter:
"Some ill-advised people in Washing?
ton ure endeavoring to proenre u city
ordinance compelling tho hotels of that
city to accommodate colored guests on
thu sumo terms, ami at thu Raine tables
as whites, or forfeit their licenses. An
ordinance has already been passed pro?
viding for aunulliug tho licenses of
theatres, unless they shall seat negroes
and whites without distinction on account
of color. So far from being Democratic,
or in accordance with the principles of
equality, such attempts are as flagrantly
at war with equalit;, of right as they are
with politeness. Tho only persons who
arc affected by obtruding colored guests
at ii hotel or in a theatre ure the other
guests or attendants and the proprietor.
Nineteen-twentiutliH bf these would bu
white under uuy circumstances, and the
effect of snob a measure is to enable one
black mun or woman to force his or her
company upon nineteen white men or
women who do not desire it. Displeas?
ing the nineteen to jilease the one, iu u
matter of mere association ami taate, is
not equality, bi.e the grossest inequality.
Hotels and theatres ure not public offices,
or Government institutions. They are
not supported by taxes, like free schools,
nor do they enjoy any legislative mono?
poly like railroads. They u fier entertain?
ments and amusement merely. Tho only
I function the Government has in relation
to them is to preserve order; not to regu?
late tho class of people who shall go
The Pall Mall Gaz-tie mentions the ro

last month, owing to subterranean dis?
turbances, tho naptha wells on these
islands overflowed, and the inflammable
substance spread over tb? entire surface
of the laka. It accident ly took fire, and
for forty-eight hours burned furiously
over u surface of many thousands of

husband had been at work during the

not ?Irenming of uuy danger, when u dead

TERRIRLE AFFAIR IN IDAHO.-Tho
most horrible tragedy of tho day has
been furnished by Bois City, Idaho. A
servant attempted to outrage bis em?
ployee's wifo in the absence of every one
else from tho house, and became so ex?
asperated by her resistance that, he beat
her nearly to death. Her assailant leav?
ing tho room for a moment to procure
a weapon, she managed to reaeb her
husband's gnu and cock it. The. man
soon appeared at the window, but the
gun would nut go off, and in the mean?
time he fired three shuts at her. One
of which produced a fatal wound. Then
he retired, set tire to the house and kill?
ed himself with the remaining two shots
in bis pistol. The poor woman whom
hu bud murdered had just the strength
left to crawl out of the door and preserve
ber body on tho greensward for tb? re?
cognition of her husband, instead of
compelling a search for the charred re?
mains among the ruins of bis house.
The murderer himself fell inside the
dwelling and was cousumed, so far as
his mortal part is coueerned, by fire.

THE COLORED DOCTORS IN WASHING?
TON.-The. rrjeutiou of tho applications
of tho colored doctors, Purvis and Au?

exciting considerable comment. Th*
Washington Star, in explaining the case,
"The question was simply that of ail
nutting them to social fellowship. Tbi
board of examiners nf tho society grunt
ed licenses to Dis. Purvis and Angust?
to practice, as soon as they made applica
lion; and it is claimed that this is tin
lir.st instance in the country where ain
medical society has given colored praoti
tloners any status. Tho society did UOl
quito como up to the mark of receiving
the colored doctors into sooial affiliation
bul they have shown themselves quite a:
exclusive in regard to numerous wbiti
applicants in the past. The coloree
practitioners will, ns they become bettei
known, bo able to dispel every prejudice
to their social disadvantage. Tuc Medi

with a view to prescribing u test for (jua

A Chicago journal offers some very
sensible suggestions to business men on
tho subject of advertising. The remarks
were called forth by u letter from a sob
scriber, asking the address of a promi?
nent firm doing business in that city,
aud dealing largely in musical instru?
ments. This firm were quite extensive
advertisers, but had always advertised in
what is very properly called the "spas?
modic fashion." This manner has be?
come much too common everywhere.
Many advertisers seem to regard an oc?
casional card of moro than ordinary
length and attraotiveness moro effica?
cious than a standing advertisement.
They forget that tho on\y object of ad?
vertising at all is to causo names to be
indelibly associated with their business.
Or, if they havo this end in view, their
practice ?a inconsistent with their mo?
tives. If it bo of any udvnutugo to ad?
vertise a month, it is certainly more ad?
vantageous to advertise weekly; and rea?
soning syllogisticully, the daily method
is far preferable to either.
TnE CITIZENS' SAVINOS BANK.-We
invite attention to the advertisement of
this institution to be found in our co

establishment of such u bank in this

having the want so satisfactorily sup?
plied. Tho policy and utility of savings
banks havo been amply vindicated by
experience, aud their existence in utmost
every city of the country is an evidence
of their supplying a general want. Our
mechanics, clerks, farmers and others
desiring to lay aside and augment their |
savings, have now an opportunity which j
wc trust will not bo neglected. We re
gard the Citizens' Savings Bank as a de- j
cided benefit to the public, and it is in our .
power, cordially, to commend it to the
confidejce of tho community and the.
State at large. The absolute confidence j
reposed in General Hampton, its Presi- !

feel assured its affairs will be managed, j
these afford tho amplest guarantee ns to j
