COLUMBIA, S. "C."
FricUy Morning:, August 6, 1869.
CUFFEE OWNS SOUTH CABOLLNA.-It is
currently reported that a colored Sena?
tor recently told a largo Assembly of bia
constituents (blacks): "The white peo?
ple any they are going to bring coolies
and white emigrants to this country.
But ibis country is ours; wu'vu got thc
Legislature, and we won ft allow-it-and
we won't We'll put the white mnn ten
feet under ground, and ns to the coolies,
we'll put them twenty feet."
The Kew York World, in commenting
on the sudden popularity of enfranchise?
ment of tho "white folk" of the South,
expresses the following very decided
opinion: "The anomaly of keeping
down the superior race is a failure, after
fire yean of Congress and the army to
bolster it np. This is the abandonment
df reconstruction. Its key-stono was
white disfranchisement. That pulled
ont, the whole arch falls. It has fallen,
and will soon be buried out of sight."
Furnia MACHETES.-If we may bolievo
Che current reports, they have a flying
machine in San Francisco, which will
make the airy voyage from that city to
New York in twenty-four hours. In theso
days of multitudinous and multifarious
invention, it is hardly safe to express a
doubt of the practical chances of any
machine whatever; and when the San
Francisco Highflyer bas arrived in New
York, wo promise to celebrate it in he?
roic verse, and still moro heroic prose.
Wo already begin to feel a sort of con?
tempt for the attraction cf gravitation,
serial curronts, atmospheric pressure,
and tho fusty old laws of nature, whicl
havo heretofore been deemed omuipo
tent. Only it would be rather moro sa
tisfactory if we could see the machine.
The San Francisco papers say thc expo
rimental trips were successful, and thal
a machino 150 feet long is being built.
Border law has iu all times and colin
tries been understood to bo a verv ^uc
sided sort of law-very good foi J<
who livo on the right side of the i< .
very bad for all others. It flourLsnoc
especially in those rude ages whci
enemy and stranger were described b;
the same word, and has its couuterpar
in the disposition which is said at tin
day, in some of the remote districts c
England, upon the appearance of
stranger, to prompt the exclamation:
"Punch his 'ead." Tho latest illustrr
tra ti on of this spirit of frontier justice
combined with prejudice of color an
race, is furnished by telegraph froi
Kansas. Two persons near Fort Beuto
were fired upon by Indians and one t
them wounded. The occurrence bein
reported in town, so incensed the cit
zens that they straightway took thrc
Indians, who happened to be in town i
the time, having como in for the pu
poso of trading, and hung them out <
hand-thus most illogically punishinj
as a cotemporary observes, for the ou
rage committed, "the only three Indiai
who by no possibility could have had
hand in it." This is the law of rotuli
tion, pushed to nu unwarrantable e
treme. Thc same cotemporary remark
that whatever truth there may bo iu tl
frontier saying that "there are no got
Indians but dead Indians," it would n
take many occurrences of tho kiud
justify the opinion that there are i
good white frontiersmen at all. If tl:
is border law, wo are afraid the Frieu
who have thc interests of the Iudiaus
hand will bo nuder tho necessity of a
plying to tho General Government to pi
tect their charges against the white mai
justice.

A DISGRACEFUL, OASE.-The somewhat
celebrated caa? of Bullock, Blodgett Sc
! Co. vs. E. H. Pnghe, which hos caused
considerable curiosity among our city
readers, was before; Judge Gibson all
day yesterday. Tho" oqunsol of Pagho
filed a plea denying that the presses,
fixtures, types and good will of tho Daily
Press were a part of the partnership as?
sets, and insisting that the issue made
by tho plea should bo submitted to a jury
at this (tho appearance) term. This was
resistod by the complainants' counsel,
and after a..long and exhaustive argu?
ment tho Court decided that tho facts
put in issue-by tho plea must be decided
upon the hearing of thu bill and answer
at the regular trial term. The counsel
for Pnghe then moved for a dissolution
of the injunction upon the coming in of
the answer, swearing off all the equity of
the bill. To 8nstain tho allegations of
the answer, affidavits of Beard and Hale,
both colored, were read. Both of these
negroes swore that they were largo Stock?
holders in the Loyal ueorgian concern
Beard that he owned $1,000 of the stock
-and Hale that he was the largest stock?
holder, though he could not say defi?
nitely how large his interest was.
Affidavit? in support of the charges of
the bill were read, made by 13 ut look.
Bryan, Conley, Blodgett, Bowies, Prince
- jd Bice. These affidavits not only re?
affirmed all the charges in the bill, but
contained new and important facts, and
made astounding disclosures of the work?
ings of the so-called Georgia printing
concern. Pnghe rejoined with a lengthy
affidavit, in which he took plain un indis?
tinct issue with the statements in tue
affidavits of Bullock, Blodgett Sc Co.
Tho contradictions in matters of fact
were of such a character as to preclude
tho idea that they were mere honest dif?
fering^ of opinion. There was not an
individual in tho court-room who wns
not fully satisfied that perjury was com?
mitted by ono side or thc other.

SOUTHERN SECURITIES IN NEW YORK.
Tho Herald, of Moudny, in its financial
review, makes the following report of thc
market for Southern securities:
Southern securities were generally
heavy and dull. The recent violent
iluctuatious in the Teuucssecs and North
Carolinas, supposed to result from the
manipulation of State officials, have
driven investment, seekers to other and
moro reliable securities. The North Ca
; linas and Teunessees were bettor towards
thc close of the week, but only from
what is regarded as a change in the spe?
culative tactics of the aforesaid officials.
Tho South Carolinas were weaker also
through an apprehension that tho State
is falling iuto the danger of lending as?
sistance to certain railroad enterprises.
The following were the closing prices of
thc Southern list on Saturday evening:

DEATH OF MANSON JOLLY.-This news
will be received with regret by the many
friends of this bold and daring Confede?
rate soldier. We learn that a private
letter has been received stating that
Manson Jolly was drowned on the Nth
of July, near his home in Texas. He
was building a residence on the opposito
side of the creek from where he lived,
i and had crossed over on horseback seve?
ral times during the day. Tho stream
was greatly swollen, and in attempting
to cross for the third or fourth titue, ho
was carried, with his horse, down tho
I creek, and in tho struggle which ensued,
both were drowned. Mr. Jolly had been
! married about one year, and leaves a
j young wife, the daughter of a former
citizen of Anderson.
Tho thrilling exploits and adventures
of Manson Jolly in this section of the
country, immediately after thc war
closed, aro fresh in the recollection of
all. His name was a terror, for a long
i time, to tho garrison of United States
i soldiers-especially tho volunteer white
and colored regiments-stationed at this
I place. When the regular troops arrived,
he removed to Texas, where he has since
? been leading a quiet and peaceful life.

I great calamity deprives him of nearly

is supposed to be tho work of a disaf?

THE KENTUCKY ELECTION.-The elec?
tion, which occurred yesterday involved
nothing which could awaken public in?
terest. Tho choice of members o? thc
Legislature was made without political
excitement, and the conteete for seats in
that body were generally between candi?
dates professing the same faith and ad?
hering to tho same party. Borne days
must elapso before the exact result of
tho small voto polled cnn be known. In
tho meantime our friends abroad may
rest assured that there -will not be more

crop, while in Wiuconsio and severa

THE TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE SUN*.-T
morrow afternoon will occur tho tot;
eclipso of the sun, the only ono sim
1831 that has bi>en visible in any extern
ed portion of the country, and tho la
ono that will bo seen during thc confur;
In ancient days such a phenomena ii
spired wide-spread terror among the i;
uorant heathens, and they viewed it wil
j the most fearful apprehensions. Nc
science points out unerringly the ve;
moment of its appearance in every pa
of tho world where tho interposition
thc moon between the sun and earth w
cast a shadow upon thc planet which t
inhabit, and traces exactly tho belt
country where tho light of the sun w
be utterly obscured and tho eclipse w
be total. The path of tho eclipse ov
the earth's surface-that is, where it w
bo total-will begin in the North-ot
part of Asia, passing up Behring's Stra
thence South-easterly over Sitka, E
Moines, Iowa, Louisville, Kontuck
Abingdon, Virginia, Raleigh, Goldsbo
and Newborn, North Carolina; and en
iug in tho Atlantic off tho North Cai
lina coast. All along this lino there w
be points of observation, whero d
! tinguished scientists and astronomi
j will bo stationed with all tho uecesst
i instruments and appliances for obser
; tions. Thc Government sends out sc
I ral of theso parties, whilo privato ont
: prise is also busy. Tho eclipse, it
j thought, will be visible in Columl
j about 5 o'clock p. m. Tho following
given as tho best means of observi
J tho eclipse, in the absenco of inst
i monts:
i "Take a large card with a small rou
hole in tho centre, and hold it agai
i the sun's raj's, so that tho shadow \
fall on tho floor, pavement, wall or otl
. ' dark and smooth surface. In the mid
j of the shadow there will bc a true im:
of thc sun, and thc eclipse can be stud
in its progress without straining the e;
and without smutting thc faco or hal
I with smoked gloss.
"This simple process was suggested
I tho familiar circumstance, that the li;
1 spots in tho shadows, during a sc
