..Dead issues and Living IteiulU."
As a matter of interest to oar readers,
especially in Columbia, we are pleased
to state that a volume bearing this title
will soon be published by Mr. H. C.
Mack, of Murfreesboro, Tenn. It is a
history of Sherman's march through
South Carolina, and will contain a full
and detailed account of the barning of
Columbia. AU tho valuable and inter?
esting details collected by oar towns?
men, Dr. D. H. Trezevant and J. P.
Carroll, Esq., have been turned over to
Mr. Mack, and will thus take their place
in history. The volume will also eon
tain a review of tho canses of thc war,
and of Northern and Soathern charac?
teristics. The book cannot fail to he of
rare interest and of great historical
Tta>e Position of France.
The mystery which at first surrounded
the secret treaty alleged to have been
submitted to Count Bismarck by Napo?
leon, or his Minister, is now all but
positively cleared np. It must be taken
for granted that a negotiation was pro?
jected in which the interests and peace of
Europa were to be alike violated. In
-tho first place, tho document published
?in London has not been repudiated by
tho French Government. A series of
"explanations" have been permitted to
come to us through indirect channels,
bnt they aro one and all dishonest eva?
sions of the .question pat by tho English
Cabinet, rather than a frank answer to
it. It is stated, for instance, that tho
French Ambassador and tho Prussian
Minister only discussed the subject in?
formally, and that the French Govern?
ment knew nothing about the discussion.
This story would not deceive a child.
The Frenoh papers also ask the world to
believe that the scheme was only broach?
ed in order to "test" Count Bismarck
an explanation which in itself goes far to?
ward convicting tho Emperor Napoleon
of the duplicity laid to his charge. In
short, tho evidence all leads to tho con?
clusion that the treaty which tho Lon?
don Times managed to get hold of, by
means best known to itself, was not an
invention, but something very closely
resembling the document actually sub?
mitted to Bismarck. Under these cir?
cumstances, the New York Times thinks,
it would bo impossible to exaggerate tho
new difficulties which Napoleon has
created for himself. The contest which
he appears to havo boen so eager to
bring about, was ono fraught with so
much peril, that we might well suppose
he would have desired to postpono it ns
long as possible. Tho opinion of Eng?
land was against him from thc first, and
he has always shown extreme anxiety to
remain on good terms with that power.
The discovery of this secret treaty would
amply justify England in confronting
him with something stronger than morul
opposition. If, as is positively stated,
tho disgraceful proposals of France were
instantly rejected by Count Bismarck,
the fact not only attests the superiority
of tho latter as a diplomatist and states?
man, but it will be quito sufficient to
insure for Prussia tho steadfast support
of Great Britain. In other words, sup?
posing that Prussia is ever in danger of
being struck down by France-a proba?
bility which grows smaller every day
there is no longer room for doubt that
England would at once step in to the
defence of her old ally, and that Napo?
leon would find himself BO hopelessly
over-matched that no possible combina?
tion could savo him. The Emperor's
deniul of all knowledge of tho outrage
proposed to Prussia in his name, will
not bo behoved in any quarter. No one
will doubt that ho is now endeavoring
to wrest by force of arms the prize
which a guilty intrigue failed to secure.
The disclosure of this conspiracy
changes the aspect of the whole strug?
gle. Tho attitude of Prussia, it is true,
is not affected by it; but France occupies
a position which threatens her with a
disaster immeasurably greater than any
she has sustained since Waterloo. While
pretending to be acting in good faith
with tho English Government, Napoleon
is revealed in tho act of contriving a
coup d'etat for a parallel to which wo
must go back to tho early days of his
rule. Belgium .seemed so secure that no
ono of late years has believed in tho re?
newal of French aggression. Yet at tho
moment tho Emperor Napoleon has un?
dertaken tho gigantic task of 1'subdu?
ing*' Prussia, he has managed, by a trick
of inconceivable baseness, to set England
at his throat. Henceforth, it is no long?
er an issuo between the North German
Confederation and France.
An Indiana journal is trying to pro?
mote pedestrian exerciso among thc stu?
dents of the Slate by urging a law to
prohibit the Mile of liquor within three
miles of any institution of learning.
General M. C. Butler bas been charged
as one of the authors of the "Black
Code." A correspondent ol' theChsrles
ton Courier thas settles the matter:
"By referring to tho ??ouao Journal,
page 119, in the vote oh the third aud final
reading of the bill, among the nays will
be found the name of General Butler.
Mackey knew, or might have known tho
truth, but the perversion of truth serves
his purposes best."
THE PROGRESS OF REFORM.-Wo are
informed of additional mass meetings in
behalf of reform at Walhalla and Green?
ville, where crowds of both colors assem?
bled to hear the speakers. At Greenville,
B. F. Perry, Esq., introduced tho speak?
ers and showed his appreciation of tho
oflbrts now making to secure for South
Carolina a reform government. In Pick

Tho "Marseillaise" will soon loso its
local and original significance, in becom?
ing the uuiversal hymn of revolution.
It is no longer the national strain of
France-tho hymn of liberty-it is the
shriek of war itself, the murmur of ga?
thering and impassioned legions. Wher?
ever it has been sung, contending cannon
have, ero long, thandered in its chorus.
There is blood in every bar, and battle
in every note. It roused tho Hunga?
rians to revolution; it gathered the Ita?
lians, and it was tho first ory of tho "lost
cause." It is heard now in tho pnlaco of
Napoleon, and is echoed along the Py
renneos and over tho green fields of Ire?
land. Glorious and almost inspired
though it bo, there is something dreadful
in its sound. We hear it in the wail of
the oppressed, the diapason of avenging
curses, tho rush to arms, tho howl of
battlo and the shriek of victory-all com?
bined in one agony of song.
prominent port taken by ex-Congress?
man Whittomoro in tho recent radical
Convention.attracts the attention of the
Northern prossof all parties. Says thoNcw
York Herald: "In South Carolina, Gov.
Scott, by the grace of ex-Congressman
WJiiitemore, has been nominated for Go?
vernor." Tho New York World says:
It appears that the cadet-broker Whi?
temore took entire oharge of tho South
Carolina Republican State Convention
on Thursday last. It was Whittemoro
who decided which of the delegates were
duly elected; Whittemoro who framed
tho platform "indorsing President
Grant's administration;" and Whitte?
moro who nominated the candidates for
thc coming raco. In ono word, from its
head to its tail, tho whole 1 top ubi i can
party in South Carolina was incarnated
in this convicted and twice-branded ca?
det-selling, carpet-bag Congressman;
and so decided a prominence on tho heels
?of his second rejection by the House
seems to iudicute that, just in proportion
as any man becomes degraded in general
estiniutiou, just in that proportion does
ho rise in the estimation of thoso rice
field sutfragans who form, with some
Whitt?iuoro-isli whito men, tho Repub?
lican party of South Curoliun. This fel?
low was driven from tho House for pluiu
theft, and his constituents sent him
back; the House spurned him from its
threshold, and, lol he rises still higher
in South Carolina Republicanism, and
from a simple Congressman becomes the
great head-centre of tho party through?
out the State.
Tho isolation of Franco in tho contest
on which she has just entered, seems
every clay to increase. The passive
liostilit}- of Great Britain is already au
accomplished fact; Denmark, on whom
Franco reckoned to cause a diversion
against Prussia in tho North, has given
olficial notification of neutrality, and in
spite of Prince Napoleon's mission, will
probably adhcro to it, while Spain is
moro than ever irate at the language
bold by tho Freuch Foreign Minister
with r?f?rence to tho subserviency of
I thc Cortes in tho choico of a King. As
a set-oil' to all this, tho Gaulois follows
up it.?s announcement of a correspond?
ence with rofereuce to the evacuation of
Rome, by the statement of a conditional
alliance between Franco and Italy, one
stipulation of which secures to tho
latter power a payment of 312,000,000
in gold, and another loaves tho question
of tho occupation of Rome aa thc capital
to tho Government of Florence. Proba?
ble as such au ul lian co may appear, it is
uouo the less likely that Italy will pause
before taking a step in which sho risks
everything for tho immedinto attain?
ment of an object which timo will un?
doubtedly put within her grasp.

A NEURO THIEF Kl?ts A WHITE MAN,
AND is IN TUEN SHOT AND THROWN INTO
THE RIVER!-A double homicido was
committed on Tuesday last, in tho town
of Ellasville, Florida. It seems that two
negro thieves broke into tho storo of a
gontloman doing business in that town,
aud whilo they were engaged in robbing
tho establishment, were discovered by a
white mau, and ouo of them captured.
Whilo tho captor was holding tho negro,
the scoundrel drew n pistol and shot and
killed him. A number of the citizens of
tho place, hearing of tho murder, pur?
sued tho negro, and capturing him, shot
thc assassin and pitched his body into

THE LESSON 07 Po LITIO AL SAVAGERY.
In the cou ol ud'ug portion of Soot t's
novel, ''Waverley,*'* t^ejf? is no affecting
passage, where thc hero, himself joist
amnestied for complicity in tho rebellion
of 1745, rookes an. unavailing appeal to
an official M friend. to save, tho Ufe of
Fergus Mcivor, who was about to suffer
death for high treason nt Carlisle. The
functionary appealed to, writes back to
Mr. Waverley to say that he is very
sorry for "the unfortunate young gentle?
man," but cannot interfere in his behalf,
so that the law must take its course.
Such, Sir Walter Scott pauses sorrow?
fully to add, was tho mode of reasoning
common among persons of honor aud
humanity only "sixty years 6?uce." The
London Telegraph, which reviews this
suggestive fragment from Waverley,
applies it to the oaso of the Hungarian
patriot, Count Louis Batthynni, who,
only twenty years since, was hung by
the Aastrl ~. Government for tho sole
crime of patriotism, as though he had
been a murderer or a dog.
In this period of Europoau perturba?
tions, and also as affording an instance
of the change which has taken place
since political matters were oonduoted iu
Austria and Hungary with HU ch a high
hand, and when it was quito consonant
with tho code of repression adopted by
the savage commanders, of whom Hoy
nau was the most prominent type, to
hang and shoot men and to flog women,
tho story of Count Batthyaui may not
bo without interest. One of the most
distinguished of tho Hungarian mag?
nates, ho signalized himself at an early
period by his zeal in behalf of tho inde?
pendence of his country, and after wag?
ing a fierce war against the Austrian Go?
vernment, he became afterward instru?
mental in promoting Kossuth's election
to the Diet. Subsequently, he officiated
for a short time as prime minister of tho
revolutionary administration. On the
approach of tho Austrian army towards
Pesth, tho members of tho Diet and of
the administration withdrew. Batthyaui
alone would not desert his post, und tho
consequence of his chivalric resolve was
that he was arrested and sentenced by a
court-martial, presided over by tho infa?
mous Marshal Haynau, to die on tho
gallows. A horrible story was current
nt the time, that on the night before his
execution, tho Magyar's noble wife, anx?
ious that ho should avoid the ignominy
of the gallow3, forwarded to him, in a
packet of clean linen, a long, sharp,
crooked nail, with which ho inflicted a
jagged, but not mortal wound, in his
throat. Other accounts havo it that ho
stabbed himself with a dagger, and in?
flicted so many wounds upou his neck
that he could not be hung, and, accord?
ingly, was shot. He met his tragic fate
with heroism and resignation.
The resentment of Austria extended
to his wife and his three children, who
were expelled from tho country, while
his property was confiscated by tho Go?
vernment. This was only twenty-one
years ago, but a great chungo has come
over Austria in its treatment of tho he?
roic race upon whom it will have here?
after to rely as its right arm in battle.
The policy of cruelty and oppression
has given place to tho wiser counsels of
clemency and conciliation. Tho people
of Hungary stand onco moro erect, and
one of their latost aots, which Austria
oviuced no disposition to repress, waa
to do justice to the memory of Louis
Batthyaui. Tren ted even niter his death
like a felon, and buried with mutilated
rites, his remains have beon recently ro
moved from tho place into which they
were hastily thrust, aud after lying in
stnto for twenty-four hours at the Church
of the Franciscans, they have been es?
corted to tho new cemetery at Pesth by
.lf),000 Hungarians, whilo for three miles
along tho route the wiudows-nay, even
tho house-tops-were alivo with men,
women and children, looking down with
pride and love npon the ashes of tho
mau who died for his country in her
darkest hour. In view of the war clouds
which aro now hovering over Europe,
and tho possibility that Austria may
some day have to make a life and death
struggle for her own existence, it is per?
haps well for her that heroio Hungary is
herself onco more, and no longer treated
as a subjugated and vassal race. Lot tho
lessiou bo applied hero in the United
States in regard to our Southern bre?
While all Europo is discussing the
mysterious Franco-Prussian treaty for
tho absorption of Belgium, that kiug
doni must feel peculiarly outroged by a
scheme which, if successful, would havo
becu utterly destructivo of its methods
of social and industrial development.
Tho mere ownership of tho territory by
any particular power might bo changed
and history be only ropcatiug itself.
Belgium has nover onjoyed what may bo
called international independence. It
has at different periods been a possession
of France, of Spain, of Austria and of
Holland; and oven now its existence is
guaranteed by other Governments. But
tho Belgian Government has fostered an
economical policy different from any
othor, and ono especially suited to the
very diversified character of tho national
industries. It has retained control of,
and operated tho canals and railroads,
upon tho principio that good and cheap
internal communication is n most im?
portant means of promoting the pros?
perity of a Stato. Tho refusal, some
timo ago, of tho transfer of the Luxem?
burg Railway to a French company,
cvou at tho risk of offouding Napoleon,
was in conformity with this polioy. It
is easy to judge, thorefore, with what
iudignation tho people would viow a
political transfer which would certainly
involvo tho destruction of their chief
element of prosperity, as woll as their
political existonce.-New York Times.

have increased to. RU ch an alarming ex?
tent as to be regarded in the light.of a
creditable profession. Few travelers
move over its. highways without .being
despoiled of everything in their posses?
sion, even to clothing. A private letter
recently received from ono of the cities
on the ronto to the City of Mexico says
that it is no unusual thing to seo a dili?
gence arrive with all its windows closed,
which means that tho robbers have not
left the passengers enough clothes to en?
able them to appear decently before the
public. Ou such occasions blankets aro
stuffed in tho windows in ordor that they
may be enabled to walk from the dili?
gence to their bed-rooms in a becoming
manner. A Government so powerless as
to submit to such outrages is scarcely
worth tho many eulogies passed upon it
in Congress, and thc high consideration
with which it is treated by our country.
SLAVERY IX WEST INDIES.-By recout
diplomatic correspondence between Se?

notwithstanding the Government had
been committed to immediate or speedy
abolition by General Prim. Secretary
Fish has instructed Mr. Sicklos to state
