COLUMBIA, S. C.[
Weeinea lay Morning. February 8,1871.
Alsace and Lorraine.
Among tbe certain demandB which will
be made upon France by tho victorious
Prussians, tbe oession of Alsaoe and Lor?
raine is the first in order and in impor?
tance. To Germany they will form a
grand foothold beyond the Bbine, and
an ngly entering wedge into France-the
nearest point of Lorraine being not
much more than 100 miles from Paris.
They are, also, coterminous with Bel?
gium, Luxembourg and Switzerland.
They form a fertile and picturesque
country, and, if Prussia is magnanimous
as to the other stipulations, their posses?
sion would go far to compensate her.
Like many frontier provinces, they have
had a curious problem of nationality.
They are mixed of French and German.
Alsaoe-the Elsass of the Gormans-was
long a German province; and even since
its oession to France, in tht seventeenth
century, it has retained its old customs
and costumes, and, in n great degree,
tho German lauguage. Lying between
the Rhino and the Vosges Mountains, its
loss does not weaken France in a mili?
tary sense so much as that of Lorraine,
which lies North and West of those
mountains, and is watered by strategic
streams flowing toward Paris-the head?
waters of the Aisne, the Marne and the
Meuse. It is pleasant to the outer world
that its oession does not rudely shock
tho social and domestic life of its people,
for it is German to the extreme, and
German Strasbourg is likely to bu quite
as prosperous as French Strasbourg,
and better content with her prosperity.
Lorraine, too, bas had its shifting na?
tionality. A part of the Austrusia of
the Franks, when the Empire of Charle?
magne was divided amoug his unworthy
sons, it became Lothars Heidi, in Latin,
Lothari Regnuvi, or Lotharingia, the
Kingdom of Lothaire. It was long a
bone of oonteutiou between Frauce aud
the German Empire, and by the singular
mutations of fortune, it is now F ranee
and the now German Empire which are
to agree as to its destiny. In 1697, by
the treaty of Ryswick, it was held us an
independent Duchy; but in 1730 it was
ceded to France, and formed the tribu?
tary dominion of Stanislaus Leeziuski,
the father-in-law of Louis XV, with the
further understanding that on his doath
it should bo united to France, to whom
it bas since belonged. It is a rich and
fertile country, and contains, among nu?
merous prosperous towns, Verdun,
Nancy and Metz, memorable in the
history of many wars. At Nancy,
Charles the Bold fought his last battle,
and Metz was a famous stronghold, and
the seat of the French Ecole de VArtil?
lerie. The inhabitants of Lorraine are
more Frenoh than those of Alsace; they
are, indeed, of a German type in form
and feature, but the language is French,
and they will feel tho transfer of allegi?
ance more thau their Eastern neighbors.
With tho progress of popular sentiments
most countries in Europe are ruled in
part, at least, by the will aud consent of
the people; but the history of frontiers
presents an exception. Savoy, Luxem?
bourg, Lorraiuo and Alsace, havo no
rights, and the man who goes to bed n
r'renchmau will wake up some moruiug
and find himself a Dutchman. But
France, who bought the whistle on
credit, aud blew a shrill challenge upon
it, is now to pay dear for it, and part of
the price is-Alsace and Lorraine.
MYSTERIOUS DISAPPEARANCE OF A PER?
SON HAILING EBOM COLUMBIA, S. C.-We
find the following paragraph iu tho New
Orleans Times, of the 4th instant:
Mr. W. B. Leeman, who, it is said,
carno here from Columbia, S. C., and
who reached the city two or three weeks
ago, disappeared about 2 o'clock ou
Weduesday, uuder circumstances which
would leud his acquaintances to suppose
be had been foully dealt with. Tho gen?
tleman was stopping, we aro told, at No.
7 North street, and had made arrange?
ments to go into the Westcru produce
and grocery business ou Poydras street,
betweeu Magazine aud Camp. Tho
store ("formerly occupied by tho Commer?
cial Bulletin) had, at his request, been re?
paired, and several gentlemen secured us
cierks. Tho work continued until
Thursday morning, when, fiudiug that
Mr. Leeman was uowhero to bo found,
the agent of tho store closed it. Ho had
purchased a quantity of liquors from a
houuo on Fultou street, uset of scales,
and many other articles, noue of which
were paid for; according to tho version
wo hear, tho arrangement hoing to pay
for the goods ou delivery.
Soveral gentlemen, who introduced
bim to their friends, uro puzzled to kuow
what has become of him. A few sinull
debt?, which are, it is said, still unset?
tled, rather intensifies tho mystery, but
the more charitable are disposed to think
he has fallen into some sudden mis?
Mexico is lively just now. The Presi
doutiul canvass, a revolution in Guerre?
ro, an insurrection of the Yucatan In?
dians, and several volcanic eruptions,
combine to keep it so.
THE TEST OATH BILI*.-The bill re?
cently passing both Houses of Congress,
to relieve certain classes, of persons from
the necessity of taking the teat oath, or
"iron-elad," pre viona to entering on
office nndcr the Federal Government,
may have its sign iii ann?e made clearer by
a word of comment. The political disa?
bilities originally imposed on the South?
erners are summed up in two branches;
the fourteenth amendment, excluding
from onion all who held office before the
war; and the "iron-clad," exoludiug all
who stood by the South in the wur, oven
though not holding office before. By
Act of Congress of July ll, 1868, it wu?
provided that those amenable to the
fonitenn th amendment should, on Im vin g
the disabilities thereby imposed re?
moved, take a certain form of oath be?
fore entering un ofJQoe, and the bill just
passing Congres" is to allow nil who ure
not amenable to the fourteenth amend?
ment, but arc to tho "irou-clad," to hold
offioo on tuking tho sumo oath. Tho Aot
for thoso relieved from tho fourteeuth
amendment is as follows:
AN ACT PRESCRIBING AN OATH OF OFFICE
TO BE TAKEN BY FEBSONS FROM WHOM
LEO AL DISABILITIES SHA lill HAVE BEEN
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of
Representatives of the United States of
America, in Congress assembled. That
whenever any person who has participat?
ed in tho lato rebellion, and from whom
all legal disabilities nrisiug therefrom
have been removed by Act of Congress
by a vote of two-thirds of each House,
has boen or shall bo elected or appointed
to any office or placo of trustin or under
the Government of the United States,
he shall, before enteriug upon tho duties
thereof, instead of the oath prescribed
by tho Act of July 2,1862, take and sub?
scribo tho following oath or affirmation:
I, A B, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that
I will support and defond the Const it ti?
ti on of the United States against all ene?
mies, foreigu and domestic; that I will
bear true faith and allegiance to the
same; that I tako this obligation freely,
without auy meutal reservation or pur?
pose of evasion; and that I will well and
faithfully discharge the duties of the
office on which I am about to enter. So
help mo God.
Approved July ll, 1868.
Tho bill just passed for those amena?
ble to the "iron-clad" only reads thus:
Bc it enacted by the Senate and House, ff
Repr?sentai i ces if '.he United States of
America, in Congress assembled, That
wheu any persou, who is not rendereil
inelligible to office by tho provisions of
the fourteenth amendment to the Con?
stitution, shull be elected or appointed
to any office of honor or trust under the
Government of the Uuited States, and
shall not be able, on account of his par?
ticipation in the late rebellion, to take
the oath prescribed in the Act of Con?
gress, approved the] 2d of July, 1862,
said person shall, iu lieu of said oath,
before entering upou the duties of said
odien, take and subscribe tho oath pre?
scribed in an. Act of Congress entitled
"An Act prescribing an oath of oflico to
be takeu by persons from whom legal
disabilities shall have been removed."
Approved 11th of July, 1868.
So that, with tho President's approval
of the above bill, the law as to Confede?
rates holding offico is that any man re?
lieved of his disabilities under the four?
teenth amendment, or any mau never
amenable thereto, may hold any office,
State or Federal, on taking tho oath pre?
scribed in the Act of July ll, 1868,
above quoted. Those not relieved from
amenability to the fourteeuth umend
ment are still disfranchised.

Tho Uncawah sailed October 13 from
Macao for Callao, with 037 coolies on
board. When eight days out, they rose
and refusing to go below after exercise
on deck, a severe battle ensued between
them and the crew, iu which tho car?
penter and steward were killed and
several sailors wounded. At last the
Chinese were driven below, wheu they
set fire to thu ship, ?iud the crew takiug
fright got out a boat, and the captain
was obliged to jump overboard and swim
after them. They pulled five days, till
they reached tho Great Natunas Island,
whence they were soon taken off. The
British ship Juan pore, on thc evening
of the mutiny, approached tho burning
ship uud picked up a boat manned by
twenty-five Chinese and a Greek sailor,
who told tho terrible story. Next day
she cruised near the burning ship, picked
up from pieces of wreck, ?fcc, 112 of tho
survivors, which sho brought to Anjer.
Tho remainder of the coolies doubtless
perished in the destruction they caused.
CHANGES IN THE BANKRUPT LAW.-The
House of Representatives, on Wednes?
day, passed Mr. Mercur's bill to amend
the bankrupt law. This bill, it is under?
stood, place;? tho appointment of regis?
ters with the United States Circuit
Courts, and provides that the time for
bankrupts to file their petitions shall be
extended from one year to two years;
that the reversals of decrees in bank?
ruptcy shall be made only in United
Stutes Courts, aud also that exemptions
under State laws shall not exceed $1,000,
so far as tho operation of the bankrupt
law is concerned. The last two amend?
ments are designed to meet attempts of
State Courts to impede the jurisdiction
of the laws, and, in the caso of exemp?
tion, to mako it uniform ia operation.
When tho Act was first passed, it pro?
vided that State exemption oxisting in
1804: should be recognized. The object
of this limitation was to prevent the
Southern Stutes, as was then feared
would be the case, from making excess?
ive exemptions in the interest of bank?
rupt land-owners, ?fcc.
