THE SITUATION.-The accounts from
France are so confused, that it is impos?
sible to arrive at the exaot position of af?
fairs. One thing, however, is evident
the war is fast reaching a crisis. Paris,
without a supply of provisions, cannot
hold out many days; therefore, the siege
must bo raised by a defeat of tho Ger?
mans, Ol'the oity must fall. If tho re?
port's of tho j auction of tho two French
armies he true, as reported, the re-pro?
visioning of Paris has become practicable
and the war may be prolonged without a |
repulse of the besiegers. This, however,
ie questioned, and we must await further j
advice's before forming any opinion as to

Mn. EDITOR: .Wo see that Mr. Levy
hos "introduced a bill to authorize the
Attorney-General to purchase for the
State a manuscript compilation of the
penal statutes of the State, prepared by
E. B. Seabrook, of the Charleston Bar."
Now, notwithstanding tho gorgeous
display of carpets, chaudeliers, coruices,
curtains and costly ornaments at tho
State House, South Carolina is a small
and poor State; and we think reasonable
eoonomy ought to be practiced; and
make tho following suggestions: Tho At?
torney-General is by the Constitution
relieved of the duties of Solicitor of the
Charleston Circuit, and ought to have
time to make the compilation himself,
and without oharge, The penal statutes
are all printed, and we aro told by a
lawyer that ull are indexed up to 1839,
and that au index of the later statutes
can be made on two pages of foolscap.
Again. It haa been the practice of all
Solicitors to make for their own uso a
compilatiou of all the penal statutes and
of the criminal law; and the Attorney
General might obtain without charge a
copy from his relative, Mr. Chamberlain,
tho Solioitor of the Charleston Circuit.
Again. Wo have been informed that
the Attorney-General has a law partner
in Charleston, by the name of Soabrook,
nod ho might obtain for tho Attorney
General, without charge from his rela?
tive, E. B. Seabrook, a copy of the
latter's valuable compilation.
Again. There is a Commission, well
paid, coustituted for tho very purpose of
making suoh compilations, of which
Commission Mr. Whipper is Chairman,
and as by Seotion 28, Article 2 of tho
Constitution, Mr. Whipper is declared
uot "eligible to a seat in thc General As?
sembly wh'lst ho holds" this "office of
profit" under the State, ho must now
have leisure to perform this duty for
whioh he is paid, and make this compi?
lation, without further chargo to tho
Mn. EDITOR: I havo beou traveling
extensively iu Laurens within a week.
Went there the day aftor the Govern?
ment troops arrived, and returned to
Abboville several days after they left.
I was at Laurens Court House on two
successive days, and h wing heard that
"Tin Pot" was literally riddled by the
"rebels," by firing upon tho Jo CJIEWITES
contained in it, I examined that fortress
closely, aud could not find whore a soli?
tary ball hod entered that ic ill-be. relic of
Toryism. I understand, Mr. Editor, by
quite a number of reliable citizens, that
tne officer in command of tho troops
referred to had learned, and really ex?
pected to find at lea3t 2,000 armed rebels
ready to meet him at his coining; but on
his arrival, finding nothing but ponce,
quiet and good order, ho was perfectly
indignant at the slanderous lies that had
been perpetrated by Jo Crews and his
myrmidons, upon a peaceful, law-abi?
ding community. That officer, with his
troops, left, and I have no doubt but
his visit to Laurens will prove eminently
useful to the cause of good order and

Kelly for tho murder of Colouel Ames,

DAWSON, GA., December 2.-The
verdict of tho jury, in the 3nse of tho
State against John Kelly, for tho murder
of Colouel C. T. Ames, proprietor of the
New Orleans Circus, iu November last,
was "Not guilty."
WHY THE TROOPS WEBE SENT TO NEW
YOBK.-It is now given as a reason why
the troops were sent to New York to
"insure a quiet election," that, ubout
thc 20th of October, Assistant Treasurer
Hillhonse, of New York, wrote from
New York, through Secretary Bedwell,
that he lind information through the
detectives that there was great proba?
bility that a riot would occur on election
day, iu which case tho sub-treasury
wonld be entirely nt tho mercy of the
mob, and that Secretary Boutwell was
no impressed with tho information that
he brought it bofore the Cabinet, with
the result so well known. It is supposed
that the same motives which influenced
tho administration in sending troops to
Now York prevailod also io the case of
the Eastern Shore of Maryland and other
A frightful accident occurred at Si
neath's, on the South Carolina Railroad,
on Friday last, by tho giving way of tho
scaffold erected over a well just dug on
tho aide of the track. Six of tho work?
ingmen woro precipitated into tho well,
which luckily had but a few feet of wal er
in it. Thomas Loftus, one of the
hunda, waa plunged in tho mud and had
his leg broken above the knee. Tho men
oo the outside immediately lowered a
ladder, and by that means were enabled
to get those who bad fallen in, up. .1
train passed at tho timo of thc breaking
of the scaflbld, aud it may have caused
tho accident by shaking thc superstruc?
ture, causing it to give away.
SOMETHING HOBBIBLE.-It will scarcely
be believed that in this year of our Lord
1870, men aro actually caught at night,
like so many cattlo, perhaps drugged,
and then carried on ship-board and im?
pressed iuto service. Yet, it is oven so.
Several cases have already been reported
to tho Courts, and it is understood that
others havo occurred. At the present
time, mystery hangs about tho fate of
ono individual, who, it is said, suddenly
disappeared ou Saturday night from At?
lantic wharf, and whose whereabouts
havo uot been discoverod. Clots of blood
and a pistol left behind, would seem to
indicate a struggle for life, aud that either
murder or captivity has been tho result.

Grant and Republicanism; hoisting at
tho head of its columns the name of
John T. nofftnan for President, and
Genoral Johu B. Gordon for Governor,
in 1872; and supporting the Democratic
nominees for Congress in his district.
This action has caused a considerable
stir in the ranks of tho Republican
PORT BOYAL RAILROAD.-We learn that
the work upon this now enterprise is
steadily progressing. Twenty-odd miles
