?lu MM???? ?ir President Qmk
When t'reaide?t Grant issn ed bia
inaugural, ba said in effect that be would
have no will to oppose to that of Con?
gress. ? We regard'bis recent message as
somowhat illustrating this proposition.
Hie message, in the beginning, rory
properly and- naturally refers to the
magnificent prospects of this vast
.country, r?eaf? great, and yet not half
def eloped. With regard to Southern
reob?strnoti?n, fie bas a good word for
Virginia; butas to Georgia, he wants
. ber, as. the New York Herald well ex?
presses it, "to say her lesson over again. "
As for Mississippi and Texas, he hopes
these State? will come out all right-that
as, according to the radical programme.
Ca tho subject of our nuances, the Presi?
dent endorsee the views of the Secretary
of the Treasury, and favors a gradual re?
turn to specie payments. On the sub?
ject of our foreign relations, tho message
is Conservativo, and seems to favor the
plan of leaving complications to bo
?o^ed by time. The President is in no
hirey to go to tho rosene of G aba. As
to the Tenuro of Oi?ico Law, the Presi?
dent ls decided. Ho urges its repeal,
tn. flue, excepting on this question,
tile Pr?jftdeift;i??} sates no views or policy
likely to provoke nny antagonism be?
tween tiirnsolf and COD gr ess. The mes?
sage is brief. Whilst we do not agree
with the views and spirit of this docu
ment in nil respecta, we are enabled to
say that, as a State paper, it is olear,
comprehensive, and praotieal, and if it
?boompliahea no great good, it is cer?
tainly not likely to work any serious in?
"A Gnoss iNDiONrrr TO SOTJTH CAHO
UNA SEN ATO R3."-Under this heading
the radical paper in Richmond, Va.,
saje; "A gross outrage was perpetrated
on'the 6th inst, at Glover Hill Station,
on tho Danville Railroad, by the au?
thorities of that road, by ejecting from
the ears three colored State Senators
' from South Carolina, and treatiug them
to indignities. United States Senators
Sawyer and Robertson and several mem?
bers of Congress from South Carolina,
on their way to Congress, were accompa?
nied-by three State Senators of tho same
State, highly respectable colored men,
all bright mulattoes. These latter pur?
chased first class tickets at Columbia,
and rode in a first class car through the
reconstructed States of Sonth and North
Carolina, without molestation; but when
they reaohed the Virginia line their
troubles began. At Danville they were
ordered out of tho first class car, but re?
fused to leave it There was a good deal
of excitement, sud no effort was at once
made to eject them. On reaching Clover
Hill station, however, two of them hap?
pened to get out to obtain refreshments,
and when they would havo entered again
were refused admittance, and forced
to take their places in n common car.
The third, Senator Wright, was then
ordered out, but persisted in retaining
hi8seat. At Clover Station, however,
by order of Preside nt Buford, our in?
formant says, he was forcibly and
roughly ejected, amid great confusion
and excitement, and mnch to tho indig?
nation of the South Carolina Senators
and members. It is said there was a
lively time on board the train."
In the proceedings of Congress, on
the 7th, the passage of the bill to re?
move political disabilities from sundry
citizens of the Southern States, therein
named, was urged by Messrs. Robertson
and McCr eery.
Mr. Sumner inquired if this bill had
been referred to the proper committee.
Mr. Robertson stated that tho bill
itself had not been referred, but the
names had all been considered by the
Committee on Disabilities.
Mr. Oonkling was not one of those
anxious for the removal of political disa?
bilities. This was the only punishment
on men who had originated the most
guilty rebellion the world ever saw.
After some further discussion the bill
Beth Houses of Congress have passed
a bill relieving the following South Ca?
rolinians from their political disabilities.
The bill was signed to-day by the Presi?
dent, and is therefore now a la> t : W. W.
Boyce and Calvin Bryce, of Fairfield;
James M. Martin, of Abbeville; N. G.
W. Walker and Thomas J. Webb, of
Anderson; E. M. Whiting and J. F.

It is said that the vote of Georgia for

ment will complete the necessary num?
ber, and that Senator Moi rill's bill for
tba reconstruction of that State will have

the feeing and
ot CJohmabisi, in
otion of .'a bnit??ing
House and Post
Office; and notwithstanding a quasi com?
pliment paid to "Senator Robertson" in
the introduction, yet the implied thrust
at the honesty of purpose of Coi. Ro?
bertson, or some other member of "the
party," (presumed to be a different one
from that which "Corsair" may be con?
nected with,) whiob your humble cor?
respondent deems highly unjust, un?
grateful and unfounded.
I need only mention a fact to show tho
inconsistency of the statement of "Cor?
sair." The City Council, it has been
saia, decline to grant or cede to the
United Stales Go-, er um ont a lot for the
purpose above mentioned, in considera?
tion of its impoverished, condition, yet
immediately or shortly after this de?
cision, tho samo circumspect and im?
poverished municipality donate the sum
of $8,000 to erect buildings for the pur?
pose of holding a Fair. Conclusively
the reason alleged for not relinquishing
tho ground for a public edifice, whioh
would be an ornament and advantage to
the city at present and in futnre, is sot in
reality the real cause of objection, (the
depleted condition of the municipal
treasury,) but because the professed
edifice is not to be situated on the spot
which may be most convenient for the
particular few who sign a petition "ask?
ing the Legislature to not pass the bill."
This is not the most objectionable por?
tion of the remarks of the correspond?
ent of the News. He implies a want of
integrity of purpose and dishonest in?
tentions on the part of our representa?
tive, in designating the special pieoe of
property now called for. There are
certainly many honest men of the "poli?
tics" of the writer of the article to which
I now reply; but he should remember
that there are those of the opposite party
with equal lofty sentiments and pur?
poses for the publio weal, and should not
indulge in allusions whioh are PO totally
without foundation, and which can be
proved to be incorrect by oitizens of
Columbia, and by ONE OF THEM.
The following is a copy of tho bill to
alter and amend the charter and extend
the limits of the eily of Columbia:
Be il enacted by the Senate and House of
Representatives of the State of South Caro?
lina, noio met and silling in General As?
sembly, and by the authority of the same:
SECTION I. That tho boundaries of tho
city of Columbia be, the samo are here?
by, extended to embrace, on the side of
Upper street, all the territory included
between the said Upper street and a Hue
running parallel to the said Upper street,
and distant therefrom nine hundred nuil
fifty-four feet; and on tho side of Harden
street, to embrace all tho territory in?
cluded between the said Harden street
and a line running parallel to tho said
Harden street, and distant therefrom
nine hundred and fifty-four feet.
SEC. 2. That the Mayor aqd Aldormeu
of the city of Columbia are hereby re?
quired to proceed, immediately upon the
passage of this Act, to designate, by
proper marks and monuments, the boun?
daries hereinbefore authorized.
SEC. 3. That an election for Mayor and
Aldermen of tho said city of Columbia
shall be held on the first Tuesday of
February, 1870, and thereafter on tho
day provided by Section ll. Article II,
of the Constitution of this State, for tho
election of members of the Generol As?
sembly: Provided, That the officers

Sectiou sh ?di hold their offices until the
regular election of members of the Geuo
rul Assembly in the year 1872.
SEC. 4. Each Ward of the city of Co?
lumbia shall elect its own Aldermen, but
the Muyor shall bo elected by tho ma?
jority of voters in the eutire city.
SEC. 5. That all Acts or part3 of Acts
inconsistent with the provisions of this
Act bo and same are hereby repealed.
Titouuus IN EDGEFIELD.-At a late
hour, last evening, we received intelli?
gence of a bloody affray at Edgetield
Court House, South Carolina, which, if
true, reveals a most terrible state of af?
fairs existing in that place. A private
party who arrived hero yesterday from
the Court House, brought information of
tho affair. He states, that on last Wednes?
day, John Robinson's circus company
arrived in the village, for the purpose of
giving two exhibitions, and that an im?
mense crowd of white men and negroes
had come in from the snrrounding coun?
try to witness tho performances. On
Wednesday night, the canvas was crowd?
ed, as were also the tents in whioh were
tho jugglers, and the "greut natural cu?
riosities, " which usually accompany these
caravans, and are denominated "side?
shows." It was iu one of tho side-shows
that the row is said to have originated,
though in what manner we were unable
to learn. At all events, pistols were
drawn by both sides and freely used.
Before tho difficulty could be stopped,
the scalawag Clerk of the Suporior Court
was shot and instantly killed, and an?
other white man, unknown, was so fear?
fully beaten in the head with the but of
a revolver, by some one of his adversa?
ries, that hi9 wounds proved mortal, and
he died during the night.
As if to put the finishing touch to this
oarnival of blood, our same informant
states, that on that night, the negro mi?
litia, who have been on duty at Edgetield
Court House for some time past, arrested
a white citizen of the County, on a
charge of being a rebel bushwhacker,
and in revenge, they said, for the mur?
der of negroes by the whites, gave him
a speedy trial and executed him bv baWg"?
ing his* t? ? iree in the village.
