COLUMBIA, S. C.. SUNDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 11T1870.
VOL. VI-NO. 228.
TBS FKATJDS TH THE SOOTH CAROLINA
ELKCTIOH.^-The Washington oorrespon
dent of the New York Herald writ ea to
that paper as follows, concerning the
views of Senator Sawyer and Represen -
tatiye Bowen in the matter of the frands
committed in the late election held in
this Slate, and which have been fre?
quently exposed in oar columns:
Congressman C. O. Bowen, from the
Second South Carolina District, is ready
for the work of the coming session. In
regard to the election of DeLarge, his
opponent ia the recent canvas, he states
that already eight out of twelve Commis?
sioners, of Election ia the Counties of
Charleston, Colleton, Barnwell and
Beaufort, comprising his district, have !
been indicted for tampering with the
votos entrusted to their care. Ia ono
voting precinct there are over 200 men
ready to swear that they voted for
Bowen, while the official returns showed
only fourteen votes cast for Mr. Bowen.
Every advantago was taken by his oppo?
nents of the election law passed at tho
last session of tho Sooth Carolina Legis?
lature. Ia the city of Charleston the
appoint mont of judges under tho Con?
gressional election law insured a fair
count of the votes, but in tho remaining
portion of the district there was no limit
to the changing of votes. With but few
exceptions, it is claimed that the mana
gora as well as the Commissioners of ?
Election were interested parties, being
candidates for State and local offices on
the Scott tioket. Mr. Bowea will not
only contest the election of DeLarge,
bat says he will show by sworn state?
ments that the official returns were made
to sait the interests of his opponent,
without reference to the actual number
of votes cast. He will not only claim
his seat in the Forty-second Congress,
but will prosecute every man in his dis?
trict who participated in tho election
Senator Sawyer, of South Carolina,
who has been suffering for some timo
past with a complication of diseases,
gives a discouraging account of the pros?
pecta of the Republican party in his
State. ' He substantiates the charges
made of fraud in the Second District at
the last election, and says that in some
of the voting precincts the women
actually voted as tho representatives of
their absent husbands. He does not |
hesitate to say that unless tbero is a sub?
stantial reform within the next two years
the State will fall into tho hands of the
Demoorats at the ensusing Presidential
eleo ion. The manner in which tho last
State election ia South Carolina is rep?
resented to have been held exceeds any?
thing io the way of election frauds that
could be charged against the New York
Democracy by its most ingenious ene?
mies, and this charge is made by the
personal and politioal friends of the ad?
ministration. . The eleotion of a success?
or to Senator Robertson, whoso term ex?
pires in 1871, forms an important topic
among the aspirants for tho honor.
A social reformer assures the world
that the mission of his sect is "to en?
thuse all humanity with a new religions
devotion to 'all truth, lead whoro it
may;' and if the truth be not known,
to its discovery; and if the way to dis?
cover it be also unknown, then to the
discovery of the way. To tho discovery
of the discovery of the discovery they
devote themselves: aud thus will the
hierophantic souls Bail down the pic?
turesque vistas of protoplasm to thc
shore of tho anagogics."
RESOXTS OF THE FRENCH SORTIES. -
The ultimate results of the French sor?
ties of the 30th are now proved to have
been the securing of an offensive posi?
tion outside of Paris, both on the South
and South-east. Despatches from Ger?
man sources this morning note the fact
of the French having been driven from
Chevilly, and of their having evacuated
Champigny-sur-Miirne, neither of which
events could have happened if the origi?
nal German account of the sorties had
been strictly correct. This tardy ad?
mission that the garrison of Paris had
retained the positions they captured on
Wednesday last, is one of the first in?
stances we have of a deliberate suppres?
sion o* facta by the German leaders,
and probably furnishes a moro emphatic
proof of their diminished confidence in
the early success of their present enter?
prise than a hundred unsupported as?
sortions to that effect. It mast Dot be
forgotten, however, that Genend Du
orot's present position at Creteil-on
the peninsula formed by the upper loop
of the Marne, and protected by the guns
of Fort Chorentou-can only be of ad?
vantage in so far as it affords him the
opportunity of forming a junction with
another army outside of Paris. Even
after the Prussian lines, a few miles in
front of him, have been successfully
broken through, he hus still the com?
bined armies of Prince Frederick Charles
and General Von der Tann between him
and the Army of tho Loire. He could
not possibly subsist for many days in
the already wasted country between
Paris and Orleans, and fniling some
decided success being ?ai ned by General
de Pulludines, it is difficult to seo that
General Ducrot's movement eau havo
anything more than a healthy, morul
effect upon those who aro inditing so
devotedly for the integrity of France.
[New York Times.
A party of hunters in Styria, Austria,
fouud a whole fuudly of wild meu con?
cealed in a mountain cave. It consisted
of a man, a woman and three children,
who were utterly nuked, but covered
with douse hair. They could not speak,
but only uttered unintelligible sounds.
Tho cave thoy inhabited was in an almost
inaccessible part of tho mountain, und
they must have lived there many years.
They were taken to u neighboring town,
and efforts are being made to improve
tin ir condition.

HALF A?.1VK.-It ia a Bad thing to paBS
throgh lifo only half alive. Yot tbero aro
thousands whoso habitual condition is ono of
langHnr and dobility. They complain of no
specific disease; they suffer no positivo pain,
but they have no relish for anything which
affords mental or sensuous pleasure to
their moro robust and cuergotio fellow-be?
In nine casos out of ton, this stato of lassi?

Now, what does common sense suggest I
under theso circumstances of depression? [
The system needs rousing and strengthening;
not mcroly for an hour or two, to sink after?
ward into a more pitiable condition titan evor,
(as it assuredly would do if an ordinary alco?
holic stimulant wer o resorted to,) but radi?
cally and permanently.
How is this desirable object to bo accom-1
plished? The answer to this question, lound
ed on tho unvarying experienco of a quarter I
of a century, ia easily given. Infuse new vigor
into tho digestive organs by a courso of
HosTETTF.n's STOMACH BITTERS. DO not waste
time in administering temporary remedies,
but rooke thc system up by recuperating tho
fountain-head of physical strength aud ener?

organs depend for their nurture and support.
liy the timo that a dozen doses of tho great
vegotablo tonic and invigorant have been
taken, the feeble frame ot the dyspeptic will'
begin to feel its benign inlluence. Appetite
will be created, and with appetite the capacity
to digest what it craves. Persevere until the
cure is completo-until healthful blood, lit to

of circulation, instead of the watery pabulum
