Tho news from South America has ?
fresh variety. Besides the usual head?
ings of "Another revolution has broken
out in -Colombia," "Obiriqui up in
armB," ' ?War- between Salvador and
Honduras,"vlndian troubles in Chili,"
?co., it is stated in the papers that tbero
are wonderful discoveries of coal and oil
on tho isthmus "within thirty miles of
Aspinwall." These are tempting at
traotions in the Southern continent,
added to its silver, gold and jewels I We
are very muoh afraid that we shall have
to takd possession of South America.
The people .there won't "develop tho
riches" of their country; and we have a
world of enterprise schooled in rugged
fields of granitive New England that
could extort a world of wealth from the
rich South American mines. And then
we have ' the African, who is so well
adapted to tho South American climate
and diet. FirBt, buy a big piece of ter?
ritory, and then to "let ns havo peace,"
send in the troops to protect our citizens.
We don't see how we can got along
without the richer parts of South
HEBE AND THEIVE- THE DEFFEHENCE.
A new light or free-love philosopher,
who had boen misleading some weak
minded.women in some villages in Con
?lejotjpnt, was. seized ono night by au ex
.oited populace and a coat of tar without
the feathers-the latter probably being
rather too expensive an article to waste
upon such a worthless fellow-adminis?
tered to him. It is needless to say that
be did not permit tar to stick to his
heels in making for other parts. Tho
. transfer of Ku Kluxing operations from
the horrible South to tho Lund of Steady
Habits is one of those curious events of
the times. Great excitement exists in
Springfield, by reason of the murder of
Hon. Sharon Tyndale, late Republican
Secretary of State for Illinois. He left
home about 1 A. M., of tho 29th ult.,
and was found dead next morning, shot
through the head, and his money gone.
The perpetrator of the foal crime is un?
known. Had this taken plaae in any
State South of Mason and Dixon's line,
' every Republican .paper from Maine to
California would bold it up as a terrible
Ku .Klux outrage. Occurring in the
"loil" precincts of Springfield, however,
it is j Bimply a murder; and how dread?
fully the Republicans feel that they can?
not, make political capital ont of hie
death, there is no telling.
This is the difference between "out?
rages" in the South and North.
MAJOR SAMIVEL DICKERSON.-In tho
Charleston Deutsche Zeitung, appears the
following startling announcement: "The
Northern States will experience a sensa?
tion shortly, suoh as they have never
-known before, in comparison with which
tbe Nilsson, the Russian Czarovitch, are
mere, rushes-and this great and shiuiug
light is' to eman/ite from Charleston.
Mr. Corhiu and Mr. Gurney, aud o thors
of the Soul h Carolina Republican san?
hedrim, have concluded to send n lec?
turer to the North to open the eyes of
that bcuighted region on tho vexed Kn
Klux question. After much delibera?
tion, they have fixed upon Major Samuel
Dickerson as the most suitable mau for
thia high mission. In the good old days
'before the Union came in,' this black
major, then called Sam. 'for short,' was
a.tolerable brick layer, beat the drum,
and daring the late 'onpleasautness'
occasionally servod as drummer to tho
Germun Artillery, and made himself
useful waiting on tho officers. For 'auld
lang syne,* we .ihould like to see tho
major well received at the North. It is
not yet decided what city the gallant
major ?ill first honor with his shiny pre?
sence, as he is still going from hou.su to
house, hat in hand, to collect tho where?
withal to defray traveling espouses.
May he succeed iu leaving us with his
ppokets full of 'rocks.' "
POLITICAL TRUCE.- It seems that thy I
unremitting warfare, which has bren |
prosecuted with herculean vigor between
the representative men of the DeLargo
party and Bowen, is soon to come to un
ead. A trace has been declared for the
Surpose of collecting an indemnity of
2,G00, which the high aud low privates
at the custom house are being taxed to
raise. In tho evontof a failure of nego?
tiations to bring about n solution of thc
difficulty, tho batteries of C. C. B.'s
*'irrepressible" foo will be opened with
renewed vigor, in tho form of a merci?
less prosecution of the bigamy suit,
which, should peace set in, will be left to
wilter away. The men who have to sub?
mit to . tho extortionate demands for
funde, are getting tired of paying over
monthly pro rata assessments on their
salaries, and aro crying deeply and loud?
ly ugaiust tho imposition.
Because New York's foreign Tote is
mainly Democratic, thc Radical papers
declare, that the "damned Dutch and
Irish" are ignorant, corrupt and revolu?
tionary. But, beoause Chicago's foreign
vote is generally radical, these same
papers triumphantly assert that tho for?
eigners there aro of the "better class."
If the foreigners are of tho "botter
olass" in Chicago, Heaven help tho
natives of that leprous city, who are no
doubt entitled to tho "honor" of mak?
ing it the most disreputable city in tho
John Hancock ia tho Democratic can?

STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA,
COLUMBIA, May 2, 1871.
To the Sheriff of Fairfield County.
SIB:' I have been credibly informed,
by a number of oitizeus of Fairfield
County, as well as by your own official
communication, that on the night of tho
29th ultimo, a body of armed men, in
disguiso, rodo into tho town of Wiuns
boro, and left at tho houses of several
County officers a written paper, in which
they wero commanded to resign, nnd
threatened with violence if they Jailed
to obey. AH you are the chiei executive
officer of tho County, it is your duty to
tako measures to nscertaiu und bring to
justice these masked violators of tho
public peace, and, for this purpose, you
should promptly invoke all thc re?
sources which tho law places at your dis?
Io tho lust resort, should the ordinary
servico of process provo inadequate to
tnuku thc necessary arrests, by reason of
any nrmcd combination, you will call out
tho posse cumitalus, which cull, I have no
doubt, will be responded to by all good
lu all cases of this character, where
citizens ure putin terror by armed bunds
of lawless men, it is expected that thc
local authorities shall exhaust all legal
resources to give udcquulo protection to
lifo aud property, before tho Stuto Exe?
cutive can properly intervene by extra?
ordinary exhibitions ol force, hitherto
unknown to the administration of thc
laws in civilized communities.
Thc fuiluro of tho proper Couuty
officers to exert their utmost vigilance to
detect, aud their most vigorous eilurts to
bring to punishment all disturbers of
the peace, will bo doomed conclusive
evidenco of their flugraut neglect of duty
It is a grave reproach to tho people of
Winnsboro, that a band of fifty disguised
horsemen should havo been permitted,
undisturbed, to enter their town and
occupy it for several hours, with tho de?
clared purpose of putting iu terror, or
inflicting violence upon the sworn pub?
lic officers of the County.
In this connection, it is proper that 1
should call your attention to tho recent
Act of Congress, which mukes all citi?
zens, who ore privy to any acts of orga?
nized violence, and fail to givo any in?
formation in their possession, th ut. may
lead to tho arrost of their perpetrators,
partice.ps criminis in their guilt.

UOAD.-Thc stockholders in this road
convened, yesterday morning, in Nick
crsou House Hall, at 10 o'clock. Gen.
Paul Quattlebaum was chosen Chairman
and F. H. Gordon, Esq., Secretary.
After the meeting had beeu called to
order, the Committee ou Proxies
Messrs. John J. Cohen, W. 13. Stanley
and E. Hope-reported that a majority
of thc stock in tho company being rep?
resented, tho convention was fully organ?
ized for business. Several resolutions
of au unimportant nature were intro?
Considerable excitement was manifest?
ed at ono time with reference to certain
insinuations or charges against President
Johusou, and a lengthy debato ensued
participated in by Gen. Barringer, Gen.
Butler, Gen. Geary, Col. Rion, Col.
Haskell, Col. McMuster, Messrs. McAli
loy. Mausen, and others. Tho charges
were, that President Johnson sold $200,
000 worth of railroad bondsin Now York,
to M. K. Jessup A: Co., and insisted one
half of tho per eeutuge-S2,u00-which
was paid over to him. Furthermore,
that when indicted, before a Chester
court, with reference to over-charges on
cotton to Charlotte, he asserted that it
was a mistake-tho despatch was merely
a decoy ; some of his despatches having
been overhauled by Mr. Smith, of the
North Caroliua Railroad; and that he
had sent another despatch, correcting
the mistake, but that it had never been
received. Col. Johnson read a copy of
:i hdter-which had beeu sent to a frieud
of Iiis-explaining thc circumstances of
lim bond transaction, and emphatically
denying that he had acted fraudulently;
tit the same limo bringing counter?
charges against Mr. Manson; which
that gentleman indignantly denied.
Pending this discussion, Gen. Butler in?
troduced a resolution, that a committee
of seven from this meeting bc appointed
to examine into thc discrepancies in thc
President's report, pointed out by Mr.
(J. II, Manson; and also to inquire into
the matter of over-charges preferred
against thc President of this road;
when Col. Haskell delivered a lengthy
address, completely refuting tho charge.'-.
President Johusou and his friends evi?
dently courted an investigation and tho
appointment of thc c oimittee; but when I
the resolution was finally pul, it was laid
upon tho table.
An election was then hohl for Direc?
tors, with tho following result: William
Johnston, Rufus Barringer, A. B. David?
