COLUMBIA, S. C.
Sunday Horning, October 9,1870.
It ia believed in London, from tho
constant passage of EngHsb and Prus?
sian couriers between their respective
capitals and the Prussian headquarters,
that an armistice is being considered.
Reports sro carrent that a suggestion ?B
being disouseed for the iucorporation of
both Mecklenburgs into Prussia, the
Grand Dukes thereof to bo compen?
sated by the coesion to them of Alsace
and Lorraine. The reputed manifesto
of Napoleon in favor of a French-Prus?
sian alliance is officially contradicted at
Berlinj and the Empress Eugenie repu?
diates any direct or indirect connection
with the London paper in which it ap?
peared, or with any other newspaper.
A Berlin telegram asserts that Marshal
Bazaine still adheres to the Emperor.
A message from Paris to an English jour?
nal states that at a meeting of tho coan
oil of ministers on the 29th ult., Favre
and Arago protested against further con?
tinuance of the war without consultation
with the people, bot that Karatry, Tro
chu and Rochefort dissented.
THE FALL ELECTIONS.-A great deal
of interest centres in the elections which
will be held this month and next, as
upon the result of these elections de?
pends the character of the forty-second
Congress. There are a number of Radi?
cals in the present House of Representa?
tives who were ol cc tod by small majori?
ties. For instance: Root,.of Arkansas,
had only 467 majority; Julian, of Indi?
ana,.116, (although defeated before the
people, he was awarded this majority by
the House;) Orth, of Indiana, 457; Hill,
of New Jersey, 78; Ketehum, of New
York, 425; Schenck, of Ohio, 245; Ste
venson, of Ohio, 497; Smith, of Ohio,
333; Winans, of Ohio, 105; Wolker, of
Ohio, 462; Bingham, of Ohio, 416; Cake,
of Pennsylvania, 225; Mercer, of Penn?
sylvania, 811; Cessna, of Pennsylvania,
54; Paine, of Wisconsin, 429. In the
twenty-first district of Pennsylvania,
Foster was elected by a majority of 41.
but the Radical House of Representa?
tives gave Covode the seat. It will be
seen that-a slight chango in opinion will
in many of these districts, and in many
others as well, where the vote was nearly
as close, change the result. The Demo?
crats are confident of carrying many of
these close districts. On the 11th of
this month elections will be held in In?
diana, Iowa, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

MR. EDITOR: In the month of May,
1869, the PHCW-OC contained order? for
the rogolation of the "Sunday Batta?
lion," signed by tho Mejor Commanding,
the fifth paragraph of which, sajo:
"At evening e or vico, parade, until
further orders, is dispensed with, but
mombnrs of the organization may attend
at their u*nal rendezvous, if so disposed.
It is, however, moat earnestly requested
that no laughter, or othor noises, be
made at the ohuroh doors, so that the
preachers and hearers may not bo dis?
turbed. Reform that altogether, for the
praotice is dishonorable, and the batta?
lion most see to it that no unseemly be?
havior he allowed on any pretense what?
This request of the Commandant
scorns to have fallen on listless ears, ns
it is meekly ignored by members of the
battalion. They assemble in front of
some of the churches of onr city, and
spend the hour of worship in smoking
cigars and in laughing and talking, to
the annoyance of the minister and
hearers. Is there no remedy? It hos,
to use the mildest term admissible, under
the circumstances, become a nuisance,
and calls for the speedy interposition of
the "Major Commanding."
FATAL ACCIDENT.-Yesterday, at about
noon, an old building in Bedon's alley,

tablished with candles, and in spite of
this and the noise of the outsiders, the
occasion was carried to a brilliant close.
