DETOSED SOVEREIGNS.-Europe at pre?
sent shows the criminality of educating
one's son to "the offioe of a fowl" whioh
only soars to fall again to earth, making
them more miserable and discontented
from having tasted the sweets of spaco
in tho upper air. The number of de?
posed sovereigns, or the legitimate heirs
of sovereignty, now running about with?
out sceptres, is remarkably large, and
many of them are reported to be actual?
ly suffering for tho necessaries of life.
At the head of the list, because of his
extreme poverty, stands George, the
blind King of Hanover, who was de?
throned by Prussia in 1866. There is
Prince Wasa, who represents the origi?
nal royalty of Sweden, replaced by that
of Bernadotte, and is a descendant of
Gustavus Adolphus. There aro the
Comte de Chambord, representing the
Bourbon, and tho Comte de Paris, head
of the Orleans dynnsty of France.
There is Napoleon III, dethroned at
Parts, on September 4,1870. There is the
oldest son of Don Miguel, (uncle of the
late Queen Maria H, da Gloria,) who was
King of Portugal for a short time in
1828. There is Uuko Charles of Bruns?
wick, who was deposed and succeeded by
his brother in 1830. There are the King
and .Queen of Naples, and the respectivo
ex-rulers of Lombardy, Parma "and Mo
dona. There are Don Carlos. Isabella
TI, and little King Alfonso, of Spain.
The Pope, who has been deprived of bis
temporalities, may, in some respects, be
entitled to a place among the crownless,
but as long as he continues the head of
the oldest and most numerous Christian
body, be cannot be said to be without a
sceptre. , .
"LOOKING TO THE FUTURE."-Most
heartily do we endorse the following
sentiment, as expressed by the New Or?
leans Times. The spirit is high:
There is no habit of miud moro com?
mon than this. Pondering on coming
evonts-striving by every conceivable
precaution, and well-matured course of
notion, to avert evil and secure good
has been considered proof of sagacity
and wiso foresight. lu tho main, such
may be fact, but we still believo that
much time and anxiety so expended were
better given to instant and determinate
action. Quickness of percoptiou, cou?
pled with resoluto performance-tho in?
telligence to comprehend, the nerve to
execute, belong only to greatly practical
Timidity lingers so long over obstacles,
and shrinks so sensitively from difficul?
ties, that a long train of confused specu?
lations end in nothing. So nothing is
attained, and the poor feeble waverer
finds, too late, that time and tide are
lost. The syren song of exaggerated
precaution has lost him his opportunity
-inexorable fate closes her account
the harvest is past, the summer is ended
-hesitation has been his ruin-he has
pondered on the future which God does
not permit us to explore, till the present,
the only time whioh we can justly call
our own, has beeu squandered in irreso?
lution-surest proof of a feeble soul,
^ranting that grand self-reliance which
makes not only heroes, in a Pagan sense,
but Christian heroes of far higher typo.
Under Heaven's high dooroo man's
character depends on his own deliberate
sets. Once decided on a line of conduct
proper to be pursued, manliness, princi?
ple, honor and justice, call on him to
pursue it unswervingly. If he be faint?
hearted und vacillating iet him enter on
no high omprize, but jog on iu the beat?
en path with inferiority. Futurity is
with God, who setteth up and casteth
down, iu bis sovereign wisdom.
"Which of you, by taking thought, can
add a cubit to his stature?" ShujHing
lime-serving and evasion, belong not to
greatness or integrity. The whiteness of
man's soid is spotted by subterfuge and de?
ception. Irresolution nover stains tho
virtue of honest mon. As they think
they speak; as thoy speak they act, (so
said Osceola, an un-Christiauizod sav?
age,) and his noble sincerity might put
to the blush some who claim better light
and far higher instruction. The best
safeguard against future ill and remorse,
will always be found in open dealing, hon?
orable, resolve and brave action.
Wo do not udvooato rushness. Only
hasty and inconsiderate people yield to
its momentary suggestions; nevertheless,
au honest impulse, however ill-judged,
is sooner to bo forgiven than that frozen
policy which wears out life, striving to
compass futurity, and loaves the foolish
casuist, aud all who havo vainly trusted
him, dismal wrecks on tho shoals of time.
Adversity cannot subdue the virtuous
threatened poverty cannot scare them
from tho path of rectitude. They
anchor their hopos high above worldfv
change and sorrow-tho rock of ages is
their shield and they say to a vain spirit
of conjecture, "peace, be still!'' This
argument is scriptural-who, therefore,
shall pronounce it illogical? It should
bo our aim so to improve the present
that remorse belongs not to our dread
futurity either on earth or in tin eternal
state of existenco.
A San Francisco undertaker claims to
havo discovered a now method of pre?
serving tho doad huinau body. By his
process lie petrifies it. Ile exhibits a
body that bo petrified iu July, 1868. and
it exhibits no signs of decay. Whcu
struck, says the. editor of the Morning
Call, it give.? out "a ringing, metallic
sound." Tho color of tho llesh is not
Atter m. Storm there le ? Calm.
MB. EDITOB: Some two weeks ago,
tho militia wore from ?un dowe to day?
light, every night, firing around our
little village of Union. No one could
soundly and sweetly sleep, especially
our female portion of the coinmuuity.
There was a residence above town, on
tho Spartanburg road, one Juue Mob
ley's, where these organized bands of
militia soomed to concentrate and annoy
ns. They cautiously approached the house
of Mr. J. H. Gallman, a white man nnd
a good citizen, in the deep hours of tho
night, and fired upon him, lodging two
balls in the bed where his little niece
lay, fortunately haning no ono. A
short timo after this, they fired upon
Mr. Tom Hughes, a white man, and
frightened him and his wife to extreme.
Shortly after this, they attacked poor
one-armed Mat. Stephens in the road,
and brutally murdered him, throwing
his dead body over tho fence in conceal?
Tho good citizens of our village un?
dertook to ferret out this brutal murder,
and with the authorities of tho law,
commencod making arrests. Mr. Dan?
iel Smith, white, while in the discharge
of his duties as deputy, was fired upon
and killed. Up to this time, two white
men were murdered, and nineteen mili?
tia were put in jail, of whom some have
confessed, and a majority of thom will
be conviotod. Unfortunately for us,
two nights afterwards some banditti
nnknown, who are called Kn Klux, sur?
rounded tho jail, took out five of those
implicated in the murder, shot two to
death, about a mile above town, and
wounded the other three, who are now
in jail-one of them mortally wounded,
who has confessed his guilt. Our law
abiding citizens, who are certainly in
majority in this vicinity, deplore this
8tato of things, and have since used every
vigilance to prevent such disasters.
Now we have peace and qniet to per?
fection. We bear no more militia guns.
Tho night is not made hideous by fiends.
We condemn the Ku Klux, both white
and black, but it bas terminated, wo
think, in a small fight between ex?
tremists-two whites killed first, and
tjirco freedmen. Wo do not think mar?
tial law ought to be declared in this
County, because of tho few who do
wrong. If martial law should be de?
clared, all farming interests and business
operations must be paralyzed to such au
extent it will ruin both white and colored.
Wo soo that our Representative, Mr.
Mobley-"tfian whom a greater skunk
never lived"-wishes to force the Go?
vernor to visit our community. If tho
Governor will visit us, we will meet him
nt any point designated, and surround
him with our best citizens and weloome
him in Union, where he will learn the
true state of things. We will be glad to
sec him, and will gnaranteo him safety
A VOICE FROM UNION.
Gossip from the national capital dis?
closes deep-seated anxiety and alarm on
the part of the Radical leaders nt thc
prospects that tho Democrats, from pre?
sent appearances, are sure to carry every
Southern State in tho next Presidential
election, except, perhaps, South Caroli?
na, and a lively planning of means to
bring them again within tho Republican
fold. This was the animus of Morton's
resolution just before the recess, calling
upon the President for information as to
tho recent alleged defiance of United
States laws in North Carolina and other
Statos. Tho expected special message
of tho President is to be in the same
vein, representing the people unfit for
amnesty, and more hostile to the Go?
vernment than at any time since the war,
and asking authority to send the troops
into any State at will to enforce the
laws-a Radioal euphemism for controll?
ing tho elections. The return of Ahor?
man from Georgia, and his report |on
the prospects there, are awaited with
muon interest, and will doubtless affect
tho plan of some of the leading Radicals
for reconstructing not ouly Georgia, but
Florida, Alabama and North Carolina.

A correspondent of tho New York He?
rald, writing from Versailles, says:
"There was a fire at St. Cloud, in
which 120 villas wore burned. These
villas were strategical obstacles, and as
the process of demolishing them was
too slow for the impatient commander of
thc lino of dofenco, which they impeded,
he ordered them to bo burned-a pro?
ceeding which had tho doublo advantage
of being speedy and also of giving us a
prospect of materials for a sensational
letter-alas! to be destroyed by tho
simple history of the facts. It was only
war. Thc houses were in tho wa}' and
they must bo got out of the way. They
had been tho happy homos of 120 fami?
lies. But what of that?"
TUE CUSTOMS OF TUB COUNTRY.-Mex?
ico is a cheerful country for lovers of
peace and quietness. There is scarcely
a time whoo ono or moro of it3 States is
not in insurrection. Just now, Guerre?
ro, with a population of 270,000, is hav?
ing n sensation. One Genera! Alvarez
has placed himself ut tho head of the re?
volutionists, and proposes to oust the
legally-elected Governor. With unpa?
ralleled cheek, ho has issued a proclama?
tion staling that he desires the "estab?
lishment of order," kc, and invites tho
regular froops of the Government to lay
down their arms and "return to the bo?
som uf their families;'"' which would be
very clever in tho troops and very con?
venient, no doubt, to the ambitious de?
signs of Alvarez. But this is a very
? common way there of electing one's self
I to tho Gubernatorial chair.
Milton Robertson has been appointed
postmaster of Laurens. Mr. D. A. Ri?
chardson has been elected Intendant and
