OFFENDERS, NOBTH AND SOUTH.-The
New York Times has aa article on "Un?
discovered Grimes," in which it con?
cedes that there is - no canse for the
"pharisaical line of thought" by whioh
peoplo in the North, when stories of
Southern outrages ara reported in the
pax -rs, aro apt to congratulate them?
selves npon their superiority to their
brethren at a distauoe. The police
officers and judges of the criminal
courts ia the large oities could give evi?
dence enough on this subjeot. Yet Con?
gress seems to consider tho organized
tribunals and officers of justice in the
Southern States incompetent to deni
with crime in that section, and proposes
to intervene with Federal authority,
thus not only over-riding State functions,
but by such legislation as that contem?
plated in tho enforcement bill, and in
the Ku Klux Aot, increasing the tempta?
tions to crime by the faoility with which
subordinate ufiloialt: may perpetrate out?
rages in the pretended performance of
duty, with no responsibility to State
.courts, and the prospect of being leni?
ently dealt with by the Federal authori?
ties, if, indocd, any notice at all is taken
of their offences.
BEHIND-HAND.-A Washington letter
aays: The Senate is so far behind with
its business that nearly 500 bille on its
calendar will by lost, whilo nearly 100 iu
the HOUHO must meet the same fate.
Among these are all the measures relat?
ing to the internal revenue system, tho
tax oa cigars aud tobacco, tho abolition
of tho franking privilege, the land grunt
railroads, except possibly tho Southern
Pacific, whioh is pending in a conference ;
the dozen steamship subsidy bills, the
inaomo tax repeal, all the bills relating
to our foreign affairs, all tho schemes for
the revival of American ship-building;
the naval line and staff bill, tho bill to
abolish the grade of admiral, the bills
?mending the national baukrnpt law, the
project to ro-orgauize the Post Office
Department, to consolidate tho Indian
tribes aud create the new Territory of
Okalama, to provide for the admission
of Utah and New Mexico as States, for
an uir-line railway hence to New York,
to croate a national system of education,
together with many other bills of greater
or lesser import, but especially the bill
to establish a new Federal civil system
over the South for the suppression of
disorder, &c, whioh has been agreed on
by the Reconstruction Committee. The
Republicans are very mach disappointed
at the failure of this bill, and would en?
deavor to press it through were they not
aware of the determination of tho De?
mocrats to prevent its passage by every
means kuowu to parliamentary law.
This bill, among other features, pro?
poses, it will bo remembered, to create
several hundred Federul c#nmissiouers
for the South. This, with several others
noted, will, of course, be introduced
anew in the coming Congress, but the
increased Democratic strength has de?
stroyed there the two-third rule by which
the Republicans have been able in this
Congress to force through so much le gis?
CUBA.-Tho force of tho Cuban re?
bellion seems to have beca weakened
since the crowning of the new king of
Spain. The impression ia said to pre?
vail on tbe island that he will initiate
ce?orms which will remove the most se?
rious causes of complaint against Spa?
nish oppression and excesses. There is
certainly room enough for reform. The
new king is said to be a man of sense
and generosity of sentiment. It will be
a just und wise thing if he shall put un
end to the bad system of administration
which has prevailed in Cuba for many
years. Tho cruelties practiced during
<ho war by tho Spaniards havo been re?
volting to tho moral souse of Christen?
dom. Tho Spaniards, it is true, tell us
to miud our own busiuess, and treat our
own people with justice aud equity. It
may bi true that what Spaniards do in
Cuba is none of our busiuess, but it
must also be obvious that many thors,
in view of the oppressions practiced on
the Cuban population, and of tho im?
portant fact that the United Slates can
put an end to mis-govcrnniout lhere if it
eh i )^e, may consider that it in our busi?
ness, and that thus tho matter will get
into national politics, and the Govern?
ment be ultimately compelled to inter?
fere, ileuco it will be poliiic iu Spain
to treat her own subjects in that spirit of
justice and moderation which sho ex?
pects from her powerful neighbor on
TUE KU KLUX. - The Unionville
Times lins no fa?tb in tho ability of mero
Noldiery to disband the Ku Klux organi?
zation. It says:
"In our opinion, tho best way to
break them up would bo to first break
up tho gang of thieves uow plundering
tho State, then put into State, County
and judicial offices only snell men as uro
capable uud honest, aud elect u virtuous
aud intelligent Legislature that will
show some respect for tho feelings,
opinions and interests of the white pro?
perty owners and tax-psyers of the
State. Bring that power to bear against
tho Ku Klux, and we believe it will rout
them completely. At any rule, it is
worlh a trial."

MESSIER. EDITORS: T feel constrained iu
begging you to allow mo a short ?paco in
your paper to call attention to a fact of
serious character. There is, at tho pre?
sent time, a party of moo-known to me
by the mimes of Elton and Watkiu
who aro selling stoves under false pre?
tenses. First These stoves, os far us I
can judge-biking the ouo I purchased
ns u sum plo-are not worth tho price
asked. Second. They offer to sell on
time till 1st of October, taking a nott!
one day aller date, and, in a few days
tbeicutler, demuud payinout, aud threat?
en the simple country people with pro?
secution aud penitentiary if tboj* refuse
to pay, because their notes are un?
stamped. Third. They sell the same
Htoves fur different prices to different
people. I want to warn tho people
against theso men, and advise them if
they have stoves to buy to get them from
responsible parties in our own towu of
Newberry. Theso aro faats, and ? am
prepared to substantiate thom. Re?
spectfully, G. Ii. CHAPMAN,
Pomariu, S. C.
The Boast is a shifty fellow, in Simon
Suggs' Reuse of tho word. According io
Mr. Farnsworth, who openly made the
charges in the House some days ago,
Butler is joint owner of a quarry from
which tho Boston Post Office is being
built, tho contract far tho latter having
been let at his instance to tho highes!
bidder. He also borrowed from tho
Treasury Department certain valuable
mirrors for bis private residence, und
failed to return them. Butler answered
by sayiug that Farnsworth was a "mad
cat," and that I?is Uiajoiity at tho iast
election was reduced from 14,000 to
1,400, whioh was, no doubt, tho best
defence ho could make.
GANADA ANDXHa UNITED STATES. -Tho
New York Journal of Commerce 'remarks
that Senator Howurd'o reaolotion asking
thu cession .Of Canada by Great Britain,
ia based! up?u a principio akin to tbat
wide h won ld require pro per ty-h oidora tb
give up their premises to the police com?
missioners, because their money and
bonds were a standing temptation to
thieves, and thus an obs lacie to the per?
manent harmony which should exist be?
tween tiie city government and tbe citi?
zens. ?Mr. Ho ?uni declaren that tbe
ownership of the Northern portion of
the continent by England "is, ia ita very
nature, an obstacle to the permanent
hui ino ny of tho two governments."
Therefore let us have it, and keep the
peace! Perhaps be interprets the noble
seutiment in tho President's message,
"let na have pence," iu the acuso that
when wo covet what belongs to another,
it should bo given up promptly, in order
to prevent a quarrel. It may be doubted
whether other people will see the morali?
ty of this idea. The harmony between
the United Stutes aud Canada lAVs been
impaired by tho waut of a reciprocity
treaty, aud by the fiahory dispute; and
no doubt there is some soreness arising
from the Alabama claims. Those- are tho
cuises of uuy coolucsa that may exist,
aud not the ownership of Great Britain.
So far us Fenian raids from tho United
States are concerned, our national police
nus slr.)wu its ability to act promptly.
The equitable adjustment of the troubles
between ourselves and Great liri t ni u ouu
not be facilitated by u spirit like that
evinced by Mr. Howard and Mr. Butler.
The complaint of Mr. Disraeli, iu a
speech iu the House of Commons, to
which wo lately referred, that the tom;
of leading ofliciuls in tho United Status
towards Great Britain was not as courte?
ous as to other governments, muy have
some foundation, aud tho resentment
which the speaker expressed was m t. al?
together as ubsurd us some of our jour?
nalists seem to consider it. lu till tho
civilized countries of the world men
holding such prominent punitions iu tho
Goveruiueut us Senator Howard and
Representative Butler, are guarded in
their allusions to other couutries, and
adopt uo such laugnuge as is common to
our demagogues, ti a less they desire to
provoke a war. It is, therefore, not so
ti ti reason able that foreigners should at?
tach moro significance to tho utterances
of some of our public men t han they de?
serve, und that, even oinking nil allow?
ances for Congressional appeals tu bun
combo, they should conclude that thu
public sentiment must bo hostile which
is courted by such nppouls. We agreo
with tho Journal of Commer?a that the
direct tendency of all such talk is to
make Cauada hate us, and to put Eng?
land out of tho humor for concessions.
Tho Howard resolution, by raising au
additional issue, tho surrender of Cana?
da, uud that in au oifensive form, plays
iuto the hands of a party which has be?
gun to show itself siuce the appoint?
ment of tho joint commission, und
which evinces a purposo to prevent the
commission from making auy practica?
ble settlement. True statesmanship
would dictate tbut if we want Cauada, or
auy other additional possession, we
should obtain it honestly, and also as
economically as possible. A course of
justice uud fair dealing muy, iu ibo end,
attract Canada voluntarily to this coun?
try, and any other course, even if our
financial condition warranted us in goiug
into wur for that or any other purpose
not demanded by national honor aud
self-preservation, would only bring her
in as a slave, to lie held down by thc
strong arm of force. In truth, it con?
cerns ourselves us nearly us it does
foreign nations that we .should maintain
a standard of honesty and morality in
our dealings with others, und not de?
grade ourselves into laud robbers, who,
like other robbers, when they have plun?
dered all within their reach, fall to light?
ing among themselves for a division of
the spoils.-Ballimore Sun.

of the ?States on.7the same footing, en?
joyed by them prior to the inauguration
of the war of secession, or, in other
words, the war was to end as soon an the
South would cease its armed hostility.
Tho idea that tito war wiw prosecuted for
the purpose of subjugation or reveuge
was scouted ut ou ult sides, and Congress
even went to thu trouble of making a
flat denial of this proposition in a reso?
lution which received id most tho unani?
mous approval of both Hie Senate and
tho House of Representatives. No, tho
war was to bo couducted on purely con?
stitutional grounds, the rights of tho
States were declared to bo apart from
tho rebellion of a faction of thu popula?
tion. Secession was declared a political
heresy, und the ordinances passed, with?
out any effect whatever. The Demo?
cracy of the North sustained the propo?
sition that the States were still in tho
Union, and un this priuciplo thoy stood
and fought aud won tho battles of the
As soon, however, as armed hostility
ceased, the Radicals declared that seces?
sion was notan idea oui)", that it was
possible for States to withdraw from the
Federal Union, aud not ouly that, but
that curtain States had actually severed
their couuection with the General Go
vernmeut, and were not ouly ont of tho
Union in fact but iu law. When the
Democrats reminded them of their for?
mer averments, they retorted by asking:
I Would you have those who have been
engaged iu rebellion against the Govern?
ment go scot fret:? "lint the principle,"
I Democracy cried out. "Don't amount
I to anything," was the answer; "weare
going to punish the South; wo now de
! claro that the Southern States have been
out of the Union, und in oidor to insure
tho success of our party fur ali time to
j come wo are going to reconstruct tho
States after a lashioil of our own."
Thou followed a host of unconstitu?
tional enactments; of robbery, of Se?
questration, and of disfranchisement, all
clothed with the characteristic appella?
tion o? reconstruction in the interest of
loyalty. Ry virtue of these nets, aud
those of secession, Virginia was deuied

joyment of all her former rights for
eight years aud eight mouths; North
Carolina, for seven years and two
mouths; Mississippi, for niue years, one
mouth und fourtoeu days; Texas, for
niue years, and Georgia for ten years and
twenty five days. The war only lasted
four years aud a few mouths, therefore

age, four years of exile for thu offence of
In view of this fact, the demand for
additional reconstruction, for moro Con?
gressional iuterferenco, is little less than
barbarous aud is sullicieut to bring tho
blush of shame to any party, the despe?

Tar: NEW BAYONET ELECTION A cr. -
The new bili, which has now passed both
houses of Congress, called the enforce?
ment Act, aud which is designed to ex?
ceed in effectiveness as a piece of elec?
tion machinery that of thu last session,
will, it is to bo presumed, become law by
tho favor of tho President. We have
heretofore given a pretty full and accu?
rate exhibit of its astonishing provisious,
under which penalties of liuo and im?
prisonment aro imposed regarding the
registration of voters, which is virtually
to be taken possession of by tho Federal
officials, and also the conduct of the

If this is not degruding and debusing
the Slates wutitouly and malignantly, it
is difficult to couc.-ivo what it is. The
Act of tho last session, if wo mistake
not, rc-aeted injuriously upon the domi?
nant political party iu the country which
passed it, ostensibly for tho purpose of
securing tho purity of elections. It wus
for certain localities only, at that time
New York city, more especially, it was
saul-but now it seems corruption is
everywhere. It has grown BO rapidly
that thu law must be .-o framed us to bo
brought to bear at will in all quarters,
and be made more stringent aud
