INTERNAI, FRENCH TBOTJBIIES.-The
present situation of France, says the
Baltimore Sun, threatens her with a
worse peril thuu any during the war.
More dangerous eoemies than the Ger?
mana are now menacing her welfare.
Roobefort, Louis Blanc, and that
school of destructive madmen, having
resigned their places ia the Assembly as
a silent protest against tho cession of
Alsace and Lorraine, may be expeoted
to wield a/malign and powerfnl influence
with the Prussian mob. It is feared that
if the National Assembly adjourns to
Paris, it will bo overawed and swept
away by insurrection. Ferocious ruffians,
who are braver against their own coun?
trymen than against tho Prussians, go
about the streets wreaking vengeance on
helpless men and women who are sup?
posed to havo cultivated friendly rela?
tions with the Germans during their so?
journ in the capital. One journal in?
cites the poor to make war against the
rich. The 40,000 troops marched into
the city from the provinces would seem
to be the only force which can be re?
lied upon for preserving law and order
ia the capital. It is the misfortuno and
not the fault of the French peoplo that
they have been conquered by the Ger?
mans. A relapse into mob rule will not
only be their faalt, but will deprive them
of tho sympathies of mankind in their
TRIBUTE OF RESPECT TO BISHOP AN?
DREW.-On Saturday last, in tho Balti?
more Conference, Northern Methodist
Episoopal Churoh, the following was
read and passed unanimously:
"Whereas this Conferenoe has receiv?
ed information of the death, iu the city
of Mobile, on the 2d instant, of Rev.
James Osgood Andrew, D. D., seuior
Bishop of the Methodist Episoopal
Church South, and who was, from his
election and ordination in May, 1832,
until A. D. 1315, a Bishop of tho Metho?
dist Episcopal Church; thorefore,
Resolved, That we place upon our
journal this minute, testifying nur ap?
preciation of tho character of tho de?
ceased Bishop as an able, earnest
preacher of the gospel, and that we ex?
press our gratitude for tho grnco which
cheered his deolining davB and gave him
victory at tho last. Also, that we ex?
press our sympathy with the family of
the deceased, and with tho Methodist
Episoopal Churoh South, which has been
called to mourn the loss of its vonerated
Tho most creditable act which we have
known our Northern Methodist friends
to have performed for a long time.
We make the following extracts from
the Chester correspondence of tho York
ville Enquirer, under dato of March G:
Michael MoCormick, a citizcu of this
town, was found dead iu his bed on Fri?
day morning last. In the absence of
Colonel Daniel Witherspoon, the negro
who was elected Coroner last fall. Trial
Justice McDonald, earned au honest
penny by sitting on tho body. The
"crowner's 'quest" said it was heart
disease that occasioned the death. The
deceased retired to bed the night previ?
ous at a reasonable, hour in good spirits
and apparent good health.
While the Ku Klux scaro is operating
extensively all over the County, it is in
tho Landsford Township that the most
vigorous preparations are being made to
meet them. Under the orders of tho
league there, the highways are picketed
nightly by bands of armed negroes, with
instructions to fire into any crowd of
mon who may pass along, and to arrest
all strangers who are traveling alone,
and hold them till the following morn?
ing. This information we got from
gentlemen in that neighborhood who are
fully posted as to all their movements.
Prominently engaged in this hostile
demonstration, is one of the peace
officers of the County. The whole
movement is at tho suggestion of white
men whose consciences are making
cowards of them, and who are pluying
upon the superstitious fears of the
negroes in order to secure for themselves
quiet sleep and timely warning in caso of

PuDwc OPINION IN Yowc.---Tbe York
ville Enquirer contains a number of
cards from sundry individuals- whito
and oolored-renouncing further con*
nection with tho Radical par^fr J* W.
A. Hartuess says: M believe ;thai car j
government sbould be a whit o man's go?
vernment, and I am no longer a Radi?
cal." Sol. Hill und Jone Moore give j
notice that henceforth they "proposo to
abandon all connection with the Union
League and the Republican party," &o.
Nelson Davis denies that ho stated that
the books and records of the offices of
the Treasurer and Oouuty Commission?
ers of York were destroyed during tho
recent raid on those offices. Horace E.
Johnson denies that he said, as alleged,
that the liquor in a certain keg in D. S.
Russell & Co.'a bar-room contained poi?
son at the time the bar-room was enter?
ed on Sunday night, the 26th February,
&c. Milos Johnson says: "I was born
in Charlotte, N. C., and for the past
twenty-five years have been a resident
and citizen of Yorkville, R. O. About a I
year ago I joined the Radical party and
attended two.or three meetings of the
'Union League,' and no more. I was
nominated by the party and elected to I
the office of County School Commission?
er for York, whioh offico I now hold. If,
however, my tenure of this office re- j
quires me to endorse, to justify, to sanc?
tion or approve the bad laws that have
been passed, or the heavy taxes that have
been imposed on the people by the party
in power, then I am ready to resigu said
office, and to dissolve forevor and eter?
nally my connection with the Radical
party of South Carolina. It is due to
myself, to my wifo and children, that I
should further state that I have no sym?
pathy with, or knowledge of, those who
have been guilty of tho recent burnings,
or other acts of lawlessness that huve
been perpetrated in this County; if I did
know, I should certainly feel it a duty to
exert myself to bring tho offenders to
punishment. I am innocent of these
things. I am in favor of good laws,
good order and peace, and 'I dare do all
that may become n man' to accomplish
THE RAID ON ROSE'S HOTEL.-The
Columbia FHONIX publishes tho follow?
ing letter, addressed by E. M. Rose, the
County Treasurer, to his father in Co?
[Theu follows tho letter from Mr.
Rose's son, which appeared in our
columns a few days after the alleged
From what wo have been able to learn,
after careful investigation since the
above letter was published, we find that
it contains several statements which
must be taken cum grano salis.
The Treasurer says: "The K. Iv. K.
made a raid on mo Saturday night, but I
gol out of the way." This is so; or, at
least, he "got out of the way." The
"raid," however, was made about 1
o'clock on Monday morning.
"They destroyed all my papers, but
left tho tax duplicate." Mon of credi?
bility, several of them filling the highest
offices in the County, examined tho
Treasurer's office, on Monday morning
after the "raid," and found the records
and tax books of the office undisturbed.
"The troops arrived yesterday. I
came in last night." These statements,
wo doubt not, are true. "The troops"
arrived, and the Treasurer was on the
"Russell's liquors and the records of
the County Commissioners were all de?
stroyed." The ohairman of the board
informs us that but one paper is missing
from his office, and he believes he will
yet find it.
"They have broken everything that
they could-doors, ??o." Less thau
twenty dollars would pay for all tho re?
pairs necessary for the broken pannels
of two doors, and tbe fastenings or
catches broken on some of the other
doors. "And took out of the safe about
81,000-it may be less, I oannot tell yet."
The latter clause is true, for when the
letter was written, he did not have the
key of the safe from the time he left the
building. It is supposed that three wit?
nesses will prove that said Treasurer,
when he "got out of the way," in fact
had all the tax money about bim; and
divers witnesses will depose to his sub?
sequent statements that no money was
"They fired about 150 shots at me as
I was running." Only about thirty wit?
nesses, citizens who reside in the imme?
diate neighborhood, can testify that but
ono-a pistol shot-was fired at a dog,
who, by his yelping, did not "get out of
We deem it due to all parties to mako
the above corrections, which we do in
an impartial spirit, and only after tho?
roughly investigating the matter, and

ARREST OF A VTJ?LAIN.-Henry Cab?
bage, a negro, charged with assault and
battery and rape, was arrested last week
by Sheriff Ward. In May last this
monster committed a rape ou a white
girl iu Cluroudon County. Ho was ar?

breaking out of prison. Ho is a bold
und hardened villain, and nckuowleges

ARRESTED.-On Saturday last, Cuplaiu
C. V. Hamilton took to Edgefield throe

DIFFICULTIES, rn CHEST EU,-'For ?otuo j
days exciting ramors of serious difficul?
ties botwoep the whit? and colored peo- |
plo of Cb es tor hnvo been prevalont in
quarters at the Mt. Carmel Church, on |
the main road, about eight miles this I
side of Chester Court House, was well
authenticated, aod that Mr. Carland
Smith had been bushwhacked and had
his horse killed under him, was also re?
ported and believed. On Toesduy. a
oouritr oame from Chester, calling cn
tho peoplo of Union to go to the assist?
ance of the peoplo of Chestor Court
House, todefond that place from a threat?
ened attack from the negroes. To this
call a number ol oar young meu promp "
ly responded, and stnrted from here late
Tuesday evening. Early on Wednesday
morning, when about a mile from the
church, heariDg that the negroes had
burnt that building, and, it was sup
i posed, left for Chester, five of our men
were Bent forward to find out the true
condition of affairs. While riding along
the road near tho church, five volleys of
musketry were soddenly fired upon them
in rapid succession, from behind crees
and boulders of rook. Tho white men
retreated, and the negroes made a oharge
upon thom. Tho main body of the white
men then came up and returned tho fire
of tho negroes, when they broke and run.
Seven negroes were killed and one taken
to the Chester jail. It was a miracle
that not one of the white men was killed.
The first firo of the negroes was de?
liberately taken, not more than forty
yards from tho five white men, but not a
ball touched ono of them. Mr. J. W.
Waters was so severely wounded above
the knee that amputation was found
uecessary. Noothor iujnry to tho white
men was done, but they hud oue horse
killed and two badly wounded. The j
above can bo relied upon as the truth,
for we have it from responsible partieB
who kuow all about it. Tho white men
from Union had no intention or desire to
attack tho colored people, but were on
their way, as they believed, to protect
tho lives and property of tho citizens of
Chester. Again hns the militia guns
brought tho negroes iuto trouble, for
without them, they would not have
arrayed themselves in hostility to the
white people, aud fired upon white men
passing along the publio road.
ADJOURNMENT OF THE LEGISLATURE.
With no untoward accident, the concen?
trated essence of ignorance and preju?
dice, known as the Legislature of South
Carolina, adjourned the day before yes?
terday. Of course, we allude to the
mujority iu making use of opprobious
terms, for there are some men of both
partios whoso inclination and efforts
were directed towards the welfaro of this
degraded commonwealth. Hut, alas!
they were almost powerless, and really
accomplished only a modioum of healthy
and beneficial legislation, compared to
the wants and demands of this suffering
people. And not all of the legislation
permitted or procured by tho worst men
in that body deserves coudemnation, for
even they had glimpses of reason, and
occasionally voted for good measures.
Even they were not totally depraved.
But it is a truthful comment to de?
clare that a largo proportion of tho
past three months hus been idly spent or
wickedly bestowed upon iniquitous pur?
poses. lu view of this, and as a parting
salute to the Radical majority, we desire
to caution them against a repetition next
winter of the folly and wickedness
enacted by them during the oxerciso of a
brief authority. Tho tone and temper
of the people of South Carolina at this
moment does not indicate contentment,
ns it should, and this dissatisfaction is
not confined to Democrats, nor to the
white race alone in this section. Thore
is universal disgust and indignation pre?
valent all over this land, aud "there is a
point beyond which forbearance ceases
to be a virtue." It is almost reached, in
our judgment, and this unhappy condi?
tion of affairs is mainly attributable to
the lamentable ignorance and stupen?
dous folly of our General Assembly.
