therefor is that there is a mode of exam?

must be well aware that bia communica?

posectupon the Conservatives of teaohl

boped that it will be well applied. The
jYetcs, ot yesterday,.says:
"Yesterday afternoon, a party of, 100

of their number wore knooked down and
badly bruised. '' The rioters carried ali

an infuriated mob of seuii-b'arpariaos
from riding rough-shod over tba oowed
bodies of tho good pccpl? cf thc city.
'.And hdw may this ba done? We
answer, by putting numbers against
numbers, and, if needs be, force against
force. It is not sufficient that a aoattor
iog party of whites-should loiter aro lind
the polling precincts. They must bo
there in a body. They must act toge-'

If blood is to be shed, it cannot be in a
better causo than that of vindicating tho

COLORRD RIOTBBS.-Tba Charleston
News gives an account of a Republican
meeting, held in that city, on Monday
night, ?t which several prominent Rudi
osla spoko. There was a procession,
.banners; etc.. On returning ' from tho
meeting, the colored politicians could
not refrain from disturbing'quiet citi?
zens. Tho News says : ,
Tho procession was gathering num?
bers as it went on, and with increase of
numbers came an increase of excitement
and recklessness, amounting in many in?
stances to deedB of fiendish malevolence.
As they passed up Washington street,
they attacked the promises of Mr. Otto
Tiedemann, corner Calhoun street, broke,

they could lay their hands on. Now,
what induced this wanton assault and
destruction we are- at a loss to conceive,
for a more peaceable or a more estima?

Mr, Tiedemann. The next house that
suffered from the fury of the' mob was
Mr. C. H. Blancken, corner Charlotte,
and Washington streets. They broke
his windows, entered the store, and
thrust a burning torah into a m-.lusses
barrel, under the impression that it was
a kerosene barrel. A fiend incarnate
could not have exceeded this piece of
Delighted with these brave achieve?
ments, the savage crowd next attacked
the store and house of Mr. Klintworth,
No. 50 Washington street. They broke
windows, as ueual, threw brickbats
through them into the rooms, one large
piece hitting Mrs. Klintworth in the face
and nearly killing her; breaking crock?
ery, furniture, ?.o. These- playful exhi?
bitions of Radical manners Were accom?
panied by yells and shrieks, hurrahing
for Pillsbury, -singing,. "John Brown is
marohing on," alternating with abuse of
General Wjgener, and threats of "burn?
ing down every d-d putchman'a house."
The pext attuok was at the corner of
John and Meeting streets, where they
made repeated efforts to break into the
store, throwing stones at the windows

FRENCH . RESOOTIOES.-When France
finally succumbed after the terrible strug?
gle with the German military power, shu
was ulmost universally treated by Ame?
rican journals as dead beyond tho power'
of resurrection. We felt compelled to
doubt the porrcot.oeM of that opinion,
and pointed out tho fact that shu had
been reduced to worse straits before, aud
had rapidly reahperated. Oo ouo occa?
sion tho great statesman Burke opposed
ia the House of Com moue an iucrease
of the army estimates on the ground
that France had ceased to be a first rate
military power, and in two years after?
wards ho urged a combination of all the
groat European powers to resist her pro?
gress. Tho resources of tho nation ure
vast, and Frenchmen, as a general rule,
are prudent and economical. Outside
the cities little is expended for show, or
even for comfort, the aim being to save
as much as possible,, und when the. Go?
vernment wants to borrow there is
money to lend. Thus it happens (hut
the late loans, to tho remarkable success
of which wo have heretofore referred,
were so rapidly taken. ? Tho original de?
mand of Bismarck was for eight milliards
of francs, to be paid within less tban
two years. Tho milliard, or 1,000,000,
is cquivalont in tho enumeration of
francs to $200,000,000 in gold. Ono
milliard and a "balf of frauen, or $300,
000,000, < bad to be paid to Germany
within tho present year. Thiers made a
OAII on Franco for a loan of 8100,000,
000, and within h few hours $900,000,000
Was offered him,- of which $700,000,000
was subscribed by France, (Paris offer?
ing $500,000,000, and the provinces
$200.000,000,)'Ibe rest beiug lent by
Aa the Philadelphia Press remarks,
Prince Bismarck, who allowed tbe in?
demnity to be reduced to five milliards,
is probably eorry, by this timo, that be
did not adhere to bis first demand of
eight-that is $1,600.000,000, instead of
$1.000.000.000. He batt not calculated
sufficiently on the recuperative power of
France. - The subscription to 4.00O,
OOO.OOOf., estimating the whole popula?
tion, adult and juvenile, at 40,000,000
souls, gives au average of saved money
for' every one. The interest on the
loan ia six per cent., which is double the
amount paid on the national debt of
England. We, too, pay six per cent.,
but tho difference is that France bor?
rowed in .gold, the United States in
Th? Press adds that when Ibe Franco
Prussian war broke out, a year ago,
England bad a national debt-funded,
unfunded and value of annuities-ex?
ceeding $4.000,000,000. France th- n
owed $2,850,000,000. While the war
went on this was increased by two lonna
of $200,000,000, thereby making an
amount of $3.1150,000,000 at tho olose of
1870, being $950,000,000 less than that of
England. The new loan will swell this
up to $3.45.0.000,000, leaving the French
debt $550.000,000 less than the Eoglish.
That is, in sterling money. ?690,000,000
French against ?800,000,000 English.
A STEANOE BEING IN A TEXAS RIVEK.
The Brownsville (Texas) Slates says that
A. A. Freoman, Esq., member elect from
Haywood County, to the next Legisla?
ture, made to oue of the editors of that
paper, in the presence of several well
known gentlemen, the following remark?
able story: J. B. Maxey.au intelligent
citizen of Bell's Depot, in this Couuty,
aud keeper of the hotel in that place,
and fbr whom A. A. Freeman vouches as
a reliable, truthful man, was fishing lu a
canoe, on Joly 7, in Forked Deer River,
near Bell's Depot, and iu that part of the
river between the railroad and dirt road
bridges, when his attention was called to
an object in the river, some fifty yards
distaut, which proseuted the appearance
of a man drowning. Maxey rowed his
boat within ten feot of the object, and
saw a remarkable oreature, os the follow?
ing desoription will testify: It bad a face
perfectly white, with features like those
of a human being. It bad something
like moss on its bead instead of bair,
aud its neck was longer than the neok of
a man. Its body, down to the waist, or
so much of it as was exposed, was cover?
ed with black and white spots. It was
as large as an ordinary man, and bad
large black eyes. Maxey was within ten
feet of it ten minutes. He did not Bee
any arms. It looked at bim and slowly
turned around and disappeared in the
water. Thomas Neal, Esq., told Mr.
Freeman that bo saw the same thing at
tbe same plaoo about three years ago,
but did not tell it because be thought he
wonld he laughed at. James Neal and
Isaac Ward say tbey saw the same crea?

he had just reached the ground, where

and reclaims him, as follows:
I made a discovery a few evenings
since which relieved my mind from a
great deal of worriment. Our Bex ar?,
naturally, suspicious dud inquisitive. I
was having a pleasant chat ut the room
of a lady friend, when I thought I heard
my husband's voice over the fan-light of
a neighboring room. . We listened, and
heard boisterous laughing, whioh soon
convinced us that both our husbands
were there. We could hear distinctly,
"Chip," "Chip," "Chip," "Twenty
better," "What ye got," and a score or
more of odd expressions. Woman's cu?
riosity waa not long in being gratified.
We had no occasion to peep through the
keyhole; we learned, to oar entire satis?

to "two pairs."
I wish you could have witnessed my
husband when he entered our apartment
about 3 o'clock next morning. I had
boon waiting for him-had a sleepless
night. He entered stealthily, ned com?

rested for a moment by my snoring. I
confess I snored, but only in fnn. lt
was just to fool him. He, poor follow,
stared at mo with all tho eyes in his head;
he bad never heard me play before on
the nasal organ. I went it as strong as
Levy, but with not quito so much har?
mony. There ho stood, like patience on
a monument, when I commenced talking
in my sleep-"Chip," "chip," "chip."
"tweuty-fivo better," "two pair."

stand it no longer, and so roared right

CIRO, as reported to ns, are -aa follows.: i
A camp meeting of colored people began -.
at ?lie'above place on' last Friday,ana'
bad been continued up to the'night of
tho shooting. Monday, night, two men
rode up to .within a short distance of the ' '
congregation, when a colored man, who '
seemed'to be acting as a kind of guard';
'to tins road, hailed them with "Who are
you?" The mounted men replied ; witbr .
the asmo question, wben the/colored'":'
man ngail? asked, VVYho ate you?" . The"
party, on horseback?, evidently thanking
that their passage was to be interrupted, '
fired upon their interrogator; wounding
him id the thigh; whereupon, the ?Wbr?d
man attempted to run, when ho waa fired
upon the second time,-and wouuded in
the other thigh. Sbmo tw?lve bf "'four-.
teen shots warp fired, bu? with 'no, Other;''
damage, neatly alf the ballsjiassing high,
over, the hoads of the congregation. A :
' spent ball struck a-woman ?n1 the neck,
.but did not burt her. J'OAr informant
says that the parties who did tho shoot'.
|. in g were not disguised,, nod tlult it was
evident; from the^ effect " of the shots, ?
that they did not intend tb kill ahy ono,
I but merely to frighten the mau who nod'
'< questioned thoir passage. They rode off
in the direction of Ookesbury. Great
excitement prevailed at Greenwood.for a*'' '
short time, on account of thc affair, but
it waa believed that it would" quiet dawn
as soon as the matter was properly un?
derstood. It was no Ku Klux raid;
