Is. tty? Canoe of France Gone 1
It was announced a few days ago that
the army of the Loire, "the last hope of
France/' had been utterly defeated uear
Lemana. It now appears that Chanzy
has retreated in good order-that he
still presents au undaunted front, and
even amid defoat, exhibits the resolve
not to submit or yield. Reinforcements
are hurrying to the assistance of Chanzy,
aft the "last hope of France" yet re?
But is the army of the Loire the only
hope of France? We hold not. Tbero
stands Troohu, calm and resolute, in be?
leaguered Paris, with Duorot and other
brave lieutenants; there stands Faid
herbe in the North Valley, opposing Von
Gucben; there stands Bourbaki, making
headway in the vicinity of Dijon-to say
nothing of other detaohed Frenoh armies
still fighting on. In fine, the Germans
are still opposed by a united and reso?
lute population, bent upon a prolonged
and continued effort to rescue their na?
tive land. The valor of the Frenoh may
prove fruitless; but when this contest
shall terminate, it will be said of France
that she did all that was possible to
maintain her canse. Though repeatedly
defeated, tue Fr?noh fight now more
bravely than ever, and are passing
through a fiery ordeal in a spirit worthy
of the highest admiration.

In Unalo Sum's dominio UH, as it was
in Galilee, all wisdom is supposed to
come from the East; we can, therefore,
hail as likely to prove everywhere suc?
cessful a movement made in the Legisla?
ture of Massachusetts to abolish tho
office of ohaplain. When we bear of tho
member from Salem, one of the citadels
of Puritanism, saying that he only likes
chaplains in proportiou to tho shortness
of their prayers; and another venerable,
from blue light Boston, boldly asserting
that he favors tbe immediate abolition
of tbe office of chaplain, we feel in?
stinctively that the clerical band bas but
a very frail grip upon the legislative
bar. The only wonder is, I hat this fetish
has so long been indulged in. Much as
State Legislatures in general waut pray?
ing for, none will believe that any of tho
?hort divine interdictions and expostu?
lations of a chaplain have ever resulted
in good. lu fact, from the prevailing
character of such assemblages, a minis?
ter of the Gospel is uowhero more out of
place than in them. The indifference
and disrespect with which his prayerful
offices are treated, not only robs them
of all divine significance, but degrades
them to the level of a sorry satire. AU
the experience furnished this country,
in this respect, is unhappy; and when
we como to reflect that tho office of
chaplain is electioneered for, like other
carnal positions, neither State Legisla?
ture nor public morality would sutler
greatly by its total abolition.
SHALL WE HAVE A PROTEST AGAINST
USURPATION.-The South is powerless,
morally and physically, but tho North
has a voice, and can mako it both heard
and felt. Many of the Northern Legis?
latures are now in session, and it is
pertinent to ask which ono of thom will
be the first to condemn tho iniquitous
enforcement Act of Congress, that mukes
provincial dependencies out of sovereign
States, and demand its repeal? Will
the representatives of Pennsylvania re?
spond to the powerful appeal of her
Republican Governor? Will tho Gene?
ral Assembly of Now York add its sanc?
tion to the patriotic and powerful re?
monstrance of Hoffman? Wo shall sec.
The man who sets tho repeal ball in
motion will bo famous, for the hearts
of all true friends of liberty will be with

UNCLE SAM MUST TAKE HIS RAOC.EJ>
BILLS.-In a case in tho United States
Court at Raloigh, in which a postmaster
was defendant, the Court held that all
departments of tbe Government were
bound to sustain the currency of Hie
Government, and the fact of a bill being
moro or loss mutilated was no justifica"
tiou for its being refused by any official
of any deportment of the Government.

tion, that tho Clerk of the Senate be

dispose of the land purchased by tho
Laud Commissioner in their respective
Counties. Also gave notice of a bill to
levy a special tax in Lancaster County.

missioners of Darlington to issue bonds
for tho purpose of raising $250,000, was
made tho special order for to-morrow, at
A bill to supply tho deficiency iu the
appropriation for tho support and main?
tenance of free schools for 1870 carno up
for consideratiou, aud caused some inte?
resting debate, participated in by
Messrs. Corbin, Whittemore, Nash, Les?
lie and others. Tho bill provides for a
further appropriation of $10,000, to bo
made to pay salaries of teachers. It
seems that $10,000 will meet all defi?
ciencies, and thore is now in the bauds
of tho Treasurer of the State upwards of
$09,000, remaining over from the origi?
nal appropriation last year of $50,000,
and tho amount raised from tho poll tax,
which was somo $200,000 moro. Nash
and Leslie coutended that the amount
required should properly be drawn from
this fund in the hands of ihe State
Treasurer, and that if ho would not pay
that, then neither would bo pay, though
another Act of appropriation bo passed;
and they further suggested that a com?
mittee be at once appointed to wait on
tho Treasurer and learu why this money
was not paid out as directed by tho law.
Finally, however, tho bill was agreod to
and ordered to be engrossed, and, on
motion of Mr. Corbin, it was resolved,
that a committeo bo appointed to wait
ou tho Treasurer and gain thc informa?
tion as suggested by Mr. Leslie, as to
why tho unexpended school fund was
not paid out.
Tho Senate received from the House
tho Senate bill to provide for tho public
printing, with amendments, which were
concurred in, aud the bill ordered to be
Mr. McIntyre introduced a concurrent
resolution providiug for the appointment
of a special commit tee of two from the
j Senate and-from tho House to visit
tho Counties of Union, Spartanburg and
Laurens, and to report to the General
Assembly whether or not it bo advisable
to call upou tho General Government to
maintain order, .tc.
Mr. Nash also introduced a concurrent
resolution, that whereas domestic vio
lenco exists in tho State to ah alarming
extent, ?tc.; therefore, bo it resolved,
that the Legislature do hereby call upon
the Government of tho Uuited States to
give to tho citizens of this State that
protection which is guaranteed to them
by Section I, Article 4 of tho Constitu?
tion of tho United States, and that this)
resolution bc sent to tho Governor, with
instructions to forward it at once to Ihe J
President of the United States.
Both the resolutions were ordered to
lie over under tho rules.
A bill to amend au Act providing for !
tho next general election and tho manner
of conducting tho same, came up for J
consideration, and drew out somo hot j
tiro from Corbin, Leslie and Nash. By
Section 1 of the bill, which was drawn
up aud introduced by Corbin, it is pro- j
vided that in tho appointment of ma?
nagers and commissioners, there should
bo one from eaoh political party. This |
section mot tho most bitter opposition
of Nash and tho no less persistent dis?
approval of Leslie, while Corbin sup?
ported it by tho most irrefutable argu?
ment. Tho wisdom of tho provision is
so pntout that it is not necessary to give
I Corbin's Jviews in support of it, oxcept
. that he stated that there not only had
b aon ouspioion of f*aud in ibo lato oleo?
tiona, because of the ftba?nc? of auch? ?
provision in the law, bub that ho himself 1
waa perfectly convinced that there had
been gross fraud pr fte i io ed. He also
stated that1 to tho faot that tho people of
tbe up-country thought themselves cheat*
ed out of their honest ballots at tbe last
elections was attributable the lawlessness
tbat prevailed in that section of the
country. Nash opposed the section, from
tho fact, as hostated. that the Democrats,
if they wore in power, would not do so.
Question by Corbin-Does tho Senator
take the action of Democrats to bo bis
rule of conduct?
Tho bill was finally re-committed.

A DOMESTIC TIUOEDY IN NEW JEKSEY.
A sad domestic tragedy occurred in Jer?
sey City on Wednesday. John aloran,
a night band in tho Adirondack Steel
Works, rose about noou, and, while
dressing himself, got into an alteroatioi
with bis wife, when she seized n large
carviug knife from the labio au:l plunged
it iuto bis abdomen, inflicting a terrible
j and probably fatal wound. Mrs. Morai
i then jumped from a second-story win?
slow und escaped toa neighbor's, when
j she was arrested. Moran was found ly
ing upon the floor weltering in his blom'
nnd almost dying. The woman waf
brought back to the room, when Moran
retuned to make any accusation or state?
ment, requesting that his wife should rc
main by his side until he died or wai
out of danger.
THU TCUMBLE RESULT OF AN EVTL IN
naraoN-A BBAVB DEET?.-=-A bloody
scone was enacted iu Anderson County,
Kentucky, last week. The facts ai re?
lated are about as follows:
A farmer residing in that County tieit
od the farms of four of his neighbors
from whom ho purchased hogs, that
were to be delivered and paid for the
following day. Hu returned to bis home
that night aud went to his bed. About
Luiuuigul he was aroused by a noise in
an adjoining room, which was oaused by
the entrance of four disguised men into
his dwelling. Upon the summons, the
farmer arose from his bed aud opened
tho door leading to his room, when he
was met by tho disguised men, who de?
manded his money or his life. Tho
farmer replied that ho was willing to
givo them the money which belonged to
him, but that he hud iu his possession
money which belonged to his neighbors,
which ho could not give them. Ho wus
then told that nil tho money in his pos?
session must be given up, or his life
would be taken. With some apparent
reluctance, the farmer consented to the
demand of tho robbers, nod went into
an adjoining room, whore ho admitted
the money was concealed, the robbers
remaining behind. In a short time the
furnier returned with a double-barreled
shot-gnn and a Colt's pistol, with tho
first of which he opened on tho robbers^
two of whom fell to tho floor mortally
wounded, while tho other two made
thoir escape and were uot afterwards
seen. The farmer called iu ouo of his
neighbors, who assisted him iu washing
tho black from the faces of the two dead
men, when, to his utter astonishment,
tho farmer discovered that tho corpses
beforo him were those of two men from
whom ho had purchased hogs tho day
before. As SOJU as possible, the bodies
were removed to the homes of their
A STHAKOE STJUY.-Tho Lynchburg
"Several months ago a prominent citi?
zen of this city bought a barrel of fine
whiskey from Messrs. Rock & Armis
tend, but neglected to remove it. After
the burning of their store on Fridny
night it was found in the fourth story,
the barrel burnt almost to a coal aud the
whiskey in excellent order, though
rather too hot even for palatable 'Tom
end Jerry.' This is one of the most re
markublo cases of tho preservation of
combustible matter iu a great firo that
over came lo our knowledge, and eau be
accounted for ouly by the fact that thc
firemeu kept a continual stream of water
playing upon that part of tho building
during the progress of the fire."
As AFRICAN' RI LL.-To show tho total
nu tit ness of some of tho "newly en?
franchised" for the situation iu which
they have been suddenly placed, tho fol?
lowing circumstance is an apt illustra?
tion: At a late session of tho court at
Darlington, S. C., a negro being fore?
man of tho jury, brought iu the follow?
ing ver diot:
"Tho State of South Carolina guilty
of assault and battery." Tho presiding
Judge (very natundlj ) was so much dis?
gusted with the stupidity evinced, that
he ordered the jury to bo discharged,
and a more enlightened one substit uted.
Shades of Solon, alas!
Drunken Dick Yates has experienced
religion. Ile offered a petition iu thc
Senate, last week, asking for au amend?
ment lo the Conslitution of the Uuitcil
States, recognizing the Supreme Being,
and that nine-tenths of the people of Illi?
nois, including himself and the Radical
parly entire, believed there should bc
such nu amendment. Without debntiug
tho question iu Ibo abstract, wo would
yet remark that, considering tho con?
tempt with which tho Constitution ol
tho United States has been treated by
the soliciting parties, tho Supreme Being
is most honored by the omission; still, if
his formal recognition will add anytbiug
to its sanctity, lot us have it by all means,
if only on the score of policy.
