Tho era of fairs is fast approaching.
AH over the country, we observo notices
of the fairs to be held this fall. We
hope that our people throughout tho
State ure preparing for our State Fair.
Let us do our duty in this matter, and
make tho fair a decided success.
THE POI'E'S LAST ENCYOLIOAIJ.-The
text of the Pope's encyclical issued Au?
gust 5, mention of which was made by
telegraph, is received by mail. He
thanks all Bonum Catholics for their
abundant demonstrations of affection
towards him, as displayed upon his at?
taining the twenty-sixth year of his pon?
tificate. He believes that if they will
continue to unite their vows aud suppli?
cations to his, that "the full and abso?
lute triumph of the Church" will be sc?
oured. "Tho destruction of all tho
earthly allies of hell" is confidently
looked for, and there is not tho slightest
hint given of any design to abandon the
venerable claims of the pontificate to
temporal power, nor is there even a
temporary acquiescence in tho situation,
The address is ably and moderately
written, but it is tinged throughout with
a certain melancholy, naturally sug?
gested by the great changes which huve
. recently taken place.
The many reports of alliances and
oounter-alliances among tho powers of
Europe which have been flashed across
tho cable to ns during the past two weeks
.are but a small seleotiou of the alliances
Mvhioh are bruited about in the European
press. Bat while the cable despatches
confined themselves to all sorts of possi?
ble and impossible combinations of the
larger European powers, the European
press does not hesitate to draw the
smaller powers likewise into the vortex.
One of tho most religious organs of Eu?
rope states that Sweden, Denmark and
Holland have formed an offensive and
defensive alliance, and have conjointly
addressed a note to Kassia, in which they
express their apprehensions of German
ambition, and place thc integrity of their
territory under the protection of the
Czar. Another paper leaves out Sweden
and substitutes in her plaoe Belgium,
while their note was addrossed to Eng?
land, and not to Russia. Still another
version has it that an alliance for mutual
defence has been made between Sweden,
Denmark, Holland, Belgium, Switzer?
land and Greece, but leaves out all in re?
gard to a request for protection from
any of the larger powers of Europe.
Meanwhile, some of the powers mention?
ed above, Denmark, Sweden and Hol?
land, have each declared officially that
as far as they are conoerned, no such
engagement has been entered upon or
even thought of, and'that all reports to
tho ooritrury are mere inventions. But
this has by no means satisfied the sensa
tionists, who olaim that one of the en?
gagements entered upon is absolute
secrecy. The whole upshot of the mat?
ter is that tho politicians of Europe feel
instinctively that something in in the
wind, or at least believe they do, and
hence rack their brains to find the solu?
tion of tho mystery, which each explains
aooording to his opinion. In view of
these facts, we ought to be very cautious
in receiving European political news ut
present, particularly that in regard to
alliances and to the relations of tho dif?
ferent powers, as tho rumors aro at pre?
sent afloat principally by uninformed
sensational corresponlents or by de?
signing men, for the purpose of influ?
encing the quotations of bonds and secu?
The same sad old story of revolutions,
earthquakes and pestilence comes from
South America by tho Intent advices. A
coDBpiraoy In Peru to surprise the palace
and make a prisoner of President Balta
was "nipped in tho bud" on the 16th of
August. The leaders were arrested and

MB. EDITOR: IQ what parportB to be
tho dyiDg editorial of tho Charleston
Republican, conBiderohle injustice is done
his Excellency Governor Scott, and on
attempt is made to throw odium on his
oflioial actione, in regard to subsidizing
the Republican press of tho State. I
desire through the columns of your
paper to place the blame where tho blame
belongs. The last session of tho Legis?
lature passed a bill giving the public
priuting to the Clerks of tho Seriate and
House of Representatives, and tho Go?
vernor's approval of that bill was ob?
tained on the assur nco t hut a consider?
able expense would bo saved tho State
under their management; hut subse?
quent events have proved that, instead
of an intention of economy, a "big job"
was intended. It is not my object at
present to say anything regarding the
gentlemen who fathered this job, but it
is sufJloieut to remark, en passant1, that
they are well versed in political chica?
nery, aud have fathered mauy previous
jobs, which have resulted in the deple?
tion of the State l'reatmry. After the
passage of this Printing Dill, a company
was formed, called the "Carolina Print?
ing Company," of which Mr. Josephus
Woodruff, the efficient Clerk of tho Se?
nate, was eleoted President. Now, to
any fair-minded community, tho fact of
a man in whom the Legislature had con?
fided tho outlay of such an important
item of exp?nseos tho public priuting,
over which he should have looked with
on eagle eye, being eleoted President, or
even having un interest in a couoeru
doing this publio work, whose bills be
would necessarily have to certify to as
being correct, on which -pay men t is made,
must attach something boyoud suspicion.
Tho Carolina Printing Company, think?
ing to make itself felt OH a power, then
bought the Charleston Republican and
the Daily Union, the latter published in
this oity ; and things went on swimmingly
until a time arrived when his Excellency
Governor Scott was forced, from motives
of expediency, in which the welfare ol
the State was deeply concerned, to refuse
to approve of any more bills for the pub?
lic printing, until the matter had been
laid before the Legislature for its con?
sideration and action in the premises.
Upon Governor Scott taking this posi?
tion, and the Printing Company's jot
being blocked, all mau uer of expostula?
tions mid threats have been resorted tc
by them-among others, the discontinu'
once of the Republican and Union, tin
two leading Republican journals in tht
State. When it is here stated, und stu;
oessful contradiction challenged, that ur.
to the present time, over $200,000 hai
been drawn for by this Carolina Printing
Company, on bills certified to by tb<
Clerks of the two Houses, for work dom
or said to be done, and large bills fron
them still outstanding against the State
when it is a well-known fuct that fron
$50,000 to $00,000 ought to have beet
the extout of printing obligations in
curred, it cannot be wondered ut tba
Governor Scott, having the interest o

In regard to the Charleston Rep?blica.
ceasing its issue from the foot ol not re
coiving sufficient patronage for ita sup
port from the State, there is not on
word of truth in it. Bills have beei
paid for work done in publishing th
laws of the State, &c, the amount a
which was quite sufficient to huve main
tained thut journal in financial comfor
for oue year to come, at least; but th
hills were eolleoted by the Carolin
Printing Company; the proprietor of th
Charleston Republican, who, after pock
eting the earnings of that paper, refuse
to contribute a dollar for its support
and allowed the drafts of its financia
manager to go to protest, expecting tho
Governor Scott would pay the unsettle
accounts, rather than see the paper dit
continue. Too much oredit cannot b
accorded to Governor Scott for hi
action in this matter, when it is cons:
tiered what he will have to uudergo fror
tho party lash, oil caused by his hones
and firm resolve to suve the State Tree
sury from a party of eur moran ts, ouxiou
and williug to suck tho lifo blood fror,
the Treasury, and reduce tho Slate t
beggary, all for their selfish uud sordi
motives of gain. It is not out of th
way to state un incident which oecurre
on the presentation of one of the ut
counts, over o yard In length, of th i
printing company, to tho Executive Dt
portmeut for payment, the mummt c
which was some $13,000. Governc
Scott stated that hu was no adept i
priuting accounts, nnd would submit i
to one well versed in snob matters, whr
after o careful examination, reduced th
amount 810,000, leaving a balan?a c
only 83,000 doe for work done. Th i
servos to show the standard of the me
.ntereHte?, who would thus resort t
such low methods to rob the Stat?
throwing themselves behind the ar.
prov?l of the bill by the Governor, whoi
they knew to hove but little know led g
in printing matters. If the proprietoi
of tho -Charleston Republican hod on
desire to servo the Republican party b
tho continuance of that paper, the
could have done so, for they offered tb
paper for sale for #10,000-85,000 eas
and $5,000 on time, with a guarantee <
86,000 per annum State patronagi
They were offered by good Republiaani
anxious for tho success of the pape
84,000 in oash, and the balance, 80,001
to be taken out in State patronage, I
be made over to the Carolina Printie
Company, for its security; but they hu
no desire to serve either the paper or tl
party, OB shown by its dinoontinnanc
thinking in their short-sightedness <
east the obliquy on Governor Soot
These few items are given to the publii
in anticipation of the coming even
when tho misdeeds of tho Carolit
Printing Company, aud tho parties COD
posing it, will be thoroughly vontillutoi
If the leading artiele in the last issue
of the Charleston Republican had been
supervised before its publioatiou by Mr.
Fox, its able and accomplished editor,
subsequently to his formal interview
with his Excellency Governor Scott, I
am pursuaded a decided different tone
would have been adopted. * * *
CA VINO IN OP COAX MINES.-A corres?
pondent of the New York Times, writing
from Wilkesbarre, says:
Tho Hoileuback coal mines, belonging
to tho Wilkesbarre Coal and Iron Com
pauy, situated uear this city, caved in
with a terrible crash about 8 o'clock
Saturday night. Thone mines had heeu
iu au unsafe couditiou for sumo timo,
aud u few days ugo thu indications of
dunger became BO decidud that the
miners concluded to abandon them ou
Satunluy, which they did but a fow hours
previous to the caving, thereby prevent?
ing a horror uot second to the lato Pitts
ton disaster. A portion of tho tools and
implements wore successfully removed,
but part of thomiue collapsed suddenly,
tilling the yet undisturbed chambers with
such a powerful rush of air that boxes,
tools, caro, ?fcc, were hurled iu all direc?
tions, while, fortunately, no ono was in
thc mino, nnd all further attempts at re?
moving them wore abandoned. Tho
moss of the mino fell Saturday evening,
startling tho city, although tho occur?
rence was expected. Six acres of ground
fell at ouce to a depth of neurly 200 feet,
presenting a terrible chasm, and creating
great fissures in the surrounding banks.
Thousand? of spectators immediately
docked to thescene, notwithstanding the
threatening appearance of the banks,
but no accident occurred. Tho mines
were nenrly worked ont, so the loss to
the Company is not so great as might bu
imagined; but the miners employed
therein will lose materially, being thrown
out of work.
A MURDEROUS ASSAULT.-In the New
York Journal of Commerce, of Wednes?
day last, the following paragraph ap?
.*At the Yorkville Police Court yester?
day, Justice Bixby committed Dennis
Burns without bail, and Thomas Kane
aud James McNamara iu default of
Si,OOO each, to await the result of the
injuries of Timothy Hurley, who was, it
is alleged, mortally shot by Burns, near
the coruer of Ninth avenue and Sixty
third street, lato Monday night, without
other provocation than Hurley's ap?
proaching to ascertain the cause of un
uproar which the prisoners were mak?
The Timothy Hurley referred to in
the foregoing can scarcely be the Timo?
thy Hurley of our Legislature. lu the
UrBt place, our Tim Hurley is by far too
shrewd aud sensible to put himself in
the way of boiug shot iu a street row,
and, in the second place, a more than
passing notico would have been made of
the fact. The Timothy referred to is
doubtless some unfortunate son of Go?
tham who rejoices iu tho cognomen of
his illustrious name sake. Mr. Hurley,
of South Carolina, has not yet built the
Enterprise Railroad, and until he ac?
complishes that feat his mission is not
ended. - Charleston Courier.
A Washington despatch says it has
been the opinion of the Treasury officials
for some timo past that the rapid and
continued increase of the claimants on
the pension lists after the war had so
long terminated was somewhat irregular.
Investigations have been made from time
to time, but these have only developed
isolated cases of fraud, in most of which
the offenders have been brought to jus?
tice. Detectives in the service of tho
Treasury Department now profess to
have got on the track of information,
which, when thoroughly sifted, will
open up a wide fluid of fraud in this
branch of the public service. It ?B as?
serted that combinations exist, extend?
ing throughout the largo cities, especial?
ly in the Southern States, which have
made a regular business of working up
fraudulent lists of colored claimants who
never had an existence, except iu the
imaginations of the swindlers.
SERIOUS ACCIDENT TO A UNITED STATES
OFFICER-CAPT. W. C. BARTLETT THROWN
FROM HIS HORSE AND BADLY INJURED.
Captain \V. C. Bartlett, of Company E,
3d Artillery, stationed nt Summerville,
met with a serious, if nut fatal, accident
on Suudny. Ho was enjoying a horse?
back ride with Lieutenant Burrows,
when tho latter, being somewhat in the
rear, galloped up to the captain, whose
tiorse, being a spirited animal, took
fright from tho rustling of tho leaves
and became unmanageable. Captain
Bartlett maintained his seat under great
difficulties, until tho horse made a sud?
den dash, throwing him against a tree,
breaking both of his thighs and ono of
his legs in two places. Captain Bartlett
is well known in this city as the officer
who commanded during tko Mayoralty
election. Much sympathy is felt here
for him.-Charleston Courier.
