without their consent, which they are
only too .ready to give; and if they choose
to make'contracts and give security for
their fulfillment, we would- like to know
hoW Mr. Boutwell is going to prevent it.

at tho South in ouch in solon t defiance.
All.sensible mon, dependent upon the
vicissitudes, of commerce for BU pp ort,
krioW that the country needs labor for
its development and prosperity, that
evengu thc days ot alavary the supply
of labor foll very far short of the de?
mand. Some relief most be had, if we
expect to ever: struggle successfully
through our national and financial trou?
bles. Mr. Boutwell and bia friends may
succeed for a time in opposing and ham?
pering the movement, but we have yet
to see a political party or principle that
can successfully combat the laws of de?
mand and supply in the way of labor.
We dislike, therefore, to see a Secretary
who should know better assuming to
subject a great popular-movement to the
dictates of his own narrow-minded pre?
judices, availing himself of the opportu?
nity a Abided by official position to in?
trude b?UdSas in ? wished-for interpre?
tation of a very simple act, which any
one can just as'well interpret for himself.
If it is any satisfaction to Mr. Boutwell
to know it, we would inform him that
the preparations to secure a large influx
of Chinese labor to the South ere going
on, and will go on, just as though he
had never written. We advise him to
ponder this fact, and not imagine in
future that he carries all the laws of the
country in his port-folio, or its people in
Ilia breeches pockets. The New Orleans
Times speaks as follows on this subject:
"An effort is being made to stem tho
current of public opinion in favor of the
introduction of Chinese laborers into
this country, by invoking the interfe?
rence of the Federal Government. The
idea and purpose originated with tho ex?
tremo radicals, who expect to maka
Bontwoll availablo to carry out their
object. He, of course, is quite ready
nud willing to do anything which he
thinks may servo his great aim to keep
the South in subjection to tho negro
population, and maintain the-ascendancy
of the radical party. The menus by
which this end is to be attained is to re?
vive and put in foroe an Act of Congress
passed some years ago, prohibiting what
is known as tho coolie trade. A similar
and successful usc was made of this law
by Seward shortly after the close of tho
war. Responsible persons, who had tho
means, aud a full kuuwlodgo of tho sub?
ject, came to this city, opened an office,
and advertised for proposals to introduce
Chiueso laborers. At that time thisSt'ato
was under a military government, and
nny order .of a Federal officer could bo
enforced aud executed with ns much cer?
tainty and ns little regard for tho rights
nud interests of the people as tho ukase
of the Emperor of Russia. Mr. Soward
was not slow or scrupulous to use this
power to prevent the inauguration of
this enterprise, and orders were pub?
lished, instructions were sent to District
Attorney*, and tba old anti-coolie Aot

The foreign agenta who carno
here to establish steamers to. bring to
this country Chinese laborers, so' much
needed, were so discouraged that they
abandonod their enterprise. The tide of

bring Chinamen to California, to afford
cheaper labor to tho Boston capitalists',
who were embarked in that b?ge swindle,
the Pacific Bail road, but it would be
highly unchristiao, aud a violutiou of a
sofemn Ant of Congress, to permit tho
Southern planters to avail themselves of
that ch oap labor, and thus place, our
'beloved colored brethren' nuder tho
necessity of competing with formidable
rivals for that of which they then had
and still have * monopoly. Buch was
the result of Mr. (Seward's interference
in 1866 with the attempt to introduce,
Chinese into New Orleans to supply oar
planters with reliable labor. How many,
millions have been lost to the South.and
the World by this radical negro derna
gogueism. ' To please, to flatter, to hum?
bug the freedmen and seouro their vot?s
for the radical party, are far more im?
portant. aim? with these partisan agita?
tors than the development of the pros?
perity of any portion of the ?ouutry,
especially of the acoursod rebel bou tb.
There are intimations of further at temp ts
of this same character to interfere with '
plans for the introdnotiou of Chinese]
into the South. The telegram sends na |
something to tho effect that the old m?ti?
co olio Ant is to be revamped and so con- I
strned and put into operation ns to 'pre?
vent this immigration. ' -. 1
..-We hardly think, however, that the
submissiveness of our people can bo de?
pended on now, as in 18(H). Tho law iu
question has no application to the volun?
tary immigration of any class of people.
Its whole scope and object were to sup?
press or prevent a trade, such ns was
represented to be carried ou between
(Juba and China, in which Chinese and
other Oriental people were forcibly and
violently deported from their country
by contractors. The right of emigration
is .expressly reserved and recognized in
this law. It is only necessary to havo I
some proof, the certificate of an Amen- I
can consul, or other evidence, to rebut
the presumptions upon which alone this
Act of Congress can be put in force.
The right of the Chinese to emigrate to
and settle in this country, is as clear and
unquestionable as that of any other fo?
reigners. Their right to contraot singly
or in large numbers, in China, or in this
country, with any of our citizens to work
for them, is besides fully recognized in
the recent treaty which was negotiated
by the Ii arl in ga mo mission. .
"Let no one, therefore, who appreci?
ates the importance of the movement to
initiate and set on foot the importation
of Chinese on a large scale into the
South be deterred or discouraged by the
apprehension of any legal interference
therewith by tho Federal^Government.
Thero is no law on whiebr such interfer?
ence can be effectively maintained."
The Charleston papers state that a
Californian, Mft-Josepiia-i? former resi?
dent and native of that city-is prepared
to make contracts for supplying any
number of Chinese, on favorable terms
tho employer not being required to make
any advance. The matter is well worth
The indefatigable journals of New
York have unearthed a scheme on tho
part of our Government for the inde?
pendence of Cuba. The Sun, of Tuesday,
lets light into the business, and says it
is no longer a secret that the Adminis?
tration has opened negotiations for that
object with the present Government of
Spain; that General Sickles has already
presented the subject to the Minister for
Foreign Affairs at Madrid, and that "two
bulky telegrams have been reoeived at
Washington in consequence." The pro?
position which General Sickles had laid
before Marshal Serrano and his associates
is given as follows:
I. Spain shall recognize the independ?
ence of Cuba under the government of
II. Cuba shall pay to Spain au indem?
nity for tho resignation of the rights
hitherto exercised by tho mother coun?
try. The amount of this indemnity to
be specified in tho treaty.
III. Tho indemnity, whether fixed nt !
$100,000,000, 850,000,000, or $25,000,
000, to be in bonds of the Cnbau Go?
vernment, payable with interest nt the
expiration of a convenient period.
IV. These bonds to be guaranteed hy?
the United States.
V. An armistice to bo proclaimed be?
tween the patriots and the Spanish troops
in Cuba, immediately upon the execution
of the treaty. The island to bo evacuated
by the Spanish forces as soon as the
treaty is ratified by tho representatives
of the Cuban people, and tho guarantee
of the bonds approved by the Congress
of the United States.
VI. If these terms aro not nt once ac?
cepted by the Spanish Government, the
United States will, without further delay,
recognize the independence of Cuba.
Tho Cuban Junta forwarded from Now
York a protest to the President and Se?
cretary Fish against the alleged proposed
purchase of Cuba from the Spanish Go?
vernment, saying that two-thirds of the
islnud are owned by native Cubans, and
now held by tho authorities of free Cuba.

FIEXID-ONE MAN KILLED AND ANOTHER

account of a terrible affair which occur?

"As our readers are all aware of the

Mr. D. Cresswell arose wo will not allude
to it in this connection, but merely give
the history of the recent tragedy Ss given
to us by our informant On last Wednes?
day afternoon Mr, D. Cresswell and an
older brother, Mr. Charles Cresswell,
left this city in a buggy to return to
their homes, near 96, South Carolina.
Late on the evening of that.day the two
brothers reached Edgefield Court House
and stopped for the night at the village
tavern. On yesterday morning, between
8 and 9 o'clock, the Crosswells again
started on their journey, taking in the
hnggy with them a sixteen shooting
Winchester rifle as if anticipating trou?
ble. They bael not been gone long when
some one came into the town and said
the two men had been murdered. A
party immediately went out to ascertain
if the rumor was correct. A mile and a j
half from Edgefield, on the road to 96,
the bodies of tho Crosswells were found.
The Older, Charles Cresswell, was per?
fectly dead-the body being almost rid?
dled with buckshot. D. Cresswell was
seriously if not fatally wounded. One
hand was pierced by two balls; the other
hand by one; the chin was also struck;
one ball entered tho side, another the
stomach. The latter is reported to have
said that two men concealed by tho1 way?
side had fired simultaneously as they
saw the buggy-afterward making their
escape. Ho identified ono of the party
as George Addison, Jr., a brother of the
young lady of the affair. The wounded

At about 10 o'clock, as two brothers

they wero shot by two men-supposed
to be George and James Addison-who
had concealed themselves in a plum-treo

and give it the benefit of our circulation;
DERBT, CONN., July 21, 1869.
SIR: The political corruption of our
laud is well known. As a people, wa
clo not love our country as we should.
We do not have that pride in, nor that
feeling for our flag which other nations
have for theirs. Bribery and corruption
seem to be linked with politics. This
should be checked, otherwise it does not
require a prophetic eve to foresee our
doom. All other republics have failed
we fast follow. To arrest this down-fall
of a nation, the Order of the Eagle has
been established, its object being to in?
still into the young men of America a
high spirit of honor, a respect for our
country, a love for the flag. To this end,
it is proposed to organize societies with
an oath for members that they will snp
gort the Constitution of the United
tates, vote for the best men irrespect?
ive of party, and if ever elected to office
never to accept a. bribe. The motto is
Ducit amor patriae. Branches of this
order are to be established, with a sys?
tem of correspondence, in every city and
town throughout the Union, all working
together for tho common good. It
should be distinctly understood that this
is not a secret organization. There are
many things that could be attached to
keep up the interest-a reading room, or
gymnasium, or perhaps a rifle corps.
Will you not aid the good cause by
using your influence to organize a branch
in your own city or town?
For the constitution and further par?
ticulars address, yours respectfully,
THOS. L. CORNELL, President.
