Financial Onuratlau^-Tlioso New %
Bond?, .
Dr. Neagle states that ?10 has ho con?
ceal mont to make of his oonneotion with
the new oity honda. He sends to this
journal tho following memorandum:
"Loaned to city of Columbia $75,000,
and received of city of Columbia
9250,000 seveu per cent, bonds as
collu to ral, with authority to sell at the
eud of ninety days, unless the amount
is paid, but with promise to renew
note for sixty or ninety days."
Dr. Neagle further stated that the
said bonds were here ia bia hands, and
exhibited them to our informant. So
much, now, for this part of the transac?
tion botwoon tho City Council and Dr.
Neagle. What, now, has tho City
Couucii, or tho Committee of Ways and
Means, who| wo presume, acted for the
Council, to say on tho subject? Whon
Dr. Neagle exhibited the bouda, our in?
formant observed that the bouds bore
date 21s/ August:-about forty days ago.
It thus appears that the City Council of
Columbia, forty days ugo, determined to
issue , new booda of the city, and in
seoret meeting did issue them, and that
until, brought out by us, the matter bas
been kept a profouud sccrot. lu the
meantime, tho City Council have bad
meetings-have published their official
proceedings-and yet, not a word has
been published upon the subject-so
important to tho citizens of Columbia,
tax-payers, and all oonoernod iu the
welfare of the city. Theso are matters
for the community to reflect upou.
Comment seems uonocesBary.
If revolutions could be "laid out" just
os magnificent cities of the far West
ure-on paper-it would be rather a
good arrangement for Spain, and not so
good a ono for tho patriots of Cuba.
Tho Spanish authorities have been at the
trouble and expense, within a few days,
of again assuring the people of the
United States that tho Cuban rebelliou
was utterly erushed out and done with,
and that a proclamation to this effect
would presently be issued by the Cap
taiu-Qeneral. We thick the friends of
Cuban indopendence may be excused if
they decline to place absolute dependence
on tho.above statement, for later advices,
also of Spanish origin, inform us that
4,000 additional troops are about to be
sent to Cuba in order to orush the rebel?
lion all over ngaiu. We suppose there
never was a rebellion that would not stay
crushed to tho extent of the one io Cuba.
Tho Camden Journal, commenting
upon tho arbitrary features of tho "Ku
Klux bill," says:
"See how it has fallen already upon
us, than whom a more quiet people
never .lived 1. Two young men, of high
respectability, have, at the instance of a
mun .who led a riot on tho ~ 4th of July
last, who urged the burning of the town
and the lynching of nu officer of tho law
on that occasion, been arrested and are
sought to he tried nuder th? provisions
of the Ku -Klux bill, when there js nut a
shadow of a point wheroupon to hang a
proceeding of that nature! Even the
persons arrested for riot on the occasion
just alluded to cannot be tried under
that bill, though that was an offence
against the law and publie peaoe immea
? Burably greater than in the case we are
speaking of. - And the reason for it is
plain and evident. _ It is' because lhere
was in neither case any infringement or
attempt to .infringe upon tho political
rights of others. .-Tho utter .absurdity,
the palpable malice of tho pr?sent pro?
secution, tho falsity of the statements
which must have been made and sworn
to in order to bring it about, demon?
strate! more clearly than any other argu?
ment the extent of this monstrous usurp?
ation, and disol?ses the foot that We are
at the m?rby. of .'every','man who has
malice enough in his heart-to color suffi
cieutly bis statement of. the offence com?
mitted against' him. True,' wo may dis?
prove the charge, and be ncqnitted by a
jury .of our. peers, but only ut great ex?
pense, inconvenience and trouble. We
may' be dragged to dungeons, treated
like brutes and subjected to unjust
punishments, before we can vindicate
our true position. AU this would not
have been, but for the passage of the Ku
Klux law. Let every man who has
within him otfen a lingering spark ol
that love of freedom and justice which
characterizod their anoesters, never dis?
honor their graves nor their memory
by assenting to support the men or thc
party who have put in motion this in?
quisitorial torture of tba nineteenth
century."
GOING FOR TUE EX-REDEM.-Tbt
Washington Patriot says:
"The 'Government' bas done it at
last. An ex-rebel soldier, one of Long
street's men, wo believe, bas liad Im
official head taken off, and is no longer r
clerk in tho Iuto'ior Department. Thc
subject was considered in Cabinet, nat
Anally referred ? tb Attorney-Genera
Akermun, who decided that un ex-Con
federate soldier was incompetent to hoir
an official position under the Coostitu
lion as amended. In his own cuse, huv
ing been a member of thc Georgi)
Home Guard, und uti officer nu Toomba
staff, he. is excepted from tho prohib?
tioa, for the reason that neither he uoi
Toomba over expected to do any fight
\ ing. Longstreet's ,cuso bas not yet beet
\. reached."
' QtnsHsr"V?OToBT?:^?t is "Mate'd- that
the! health of Qoeen Victoria, for many
years a matter of anxiety to her subjects,
hos beo?mo moro than evor tho object of
their solicitude, and uo? wo have the
reported remark of Disraeli that she is
"morally nud physically incapable of
reigning much longer," and th?t ber ex?
cessive devotion to her duties bas broken
her down. This he deplored, because,
as he remarked, "no Englishman oould
possibly havt. such completo control of
the political traditions of tho country SB
its sovereign." Making ?ll allowance
for tho readiness of tho ex-premier lo
take advantage of a certain coolness
evinced by the British public toward
the Queen, in consequence of her long
retirement, and to muke a little capital
for himself, bis words appear, uuvorthe
less, to have created a great excitctneut
in Eugland, ns they fall in with appr??
hensions loog ontcrtaiued of a develop?
ment of the hereditary taint of insauiiy
in Victoria's family. George HE, her
grand-father, became insane, and for
some ton juara his son was Regent. Iiis
career, both as Regent and King, was a
disgraco to the country. Tho present
heir-apparent is said to b? of low in?
stincts nnd associations. It cannot be
agreeable to a proud aud high-spirited
people to look forward to such a succes?
sor to the Queen, who, whatever her
infirmities of mind, has been a model of
womauly excellence, und never lacking
in queenly dignity. Under her long
reign, Englaud has enjoyed great pros?
perity, and might continue to do so
under ber son, if he kns. Um prudonco to
seleot wise counselors and abstain from
a course of life calculated to provoke
public indignation. Kings do not hold
their thrones by as strong a tenuru as
formerly, and eveu patient und peaceful
England may be capable of revolution.
The correspondent of the New York
World, alluding to this matter, tele?
graphs:
"There is a whisper that tho military
manoeuvres now going on at Aldershot
have some reference to possible out?
breaks that may occur on the auuouuae
mont of her Majesty's death, aud that
the presence of the Priuao of Wales with
tho army was expedient for the same
reason. All these stories must be taken
for what they are worth; but they are
now significant straws showing how the
wind blows. When thu Queen is more
than' usually affected in her mind, they
always send for Lady Churchill, and
that lady is now ut Balmoral."
It would, therefore, appear that old
England, whom tho world a little while
ago imagined as firmly planted in order
aa her own fortress of Gibraltar, really
stands on the verge of revolution. How
far such demagogues as Mr. Odgor and
Mr. Bradlaugh will be able to control tho
ignorant masses of Euglaud against
order and stability, remains to be seen.
We can only hopo that their influence is
little, and that the statesmen of Great
Britain will BO shape events, in case any
emergency should arise, that peuce may
be maintained, and the Prinoe of Wales
be given a fair trial oithor as Regentor
King. The world is moro nearly inte?
rested in a firm government in England
than most people imagine. Her ships
are on every sea and in evory port of the
universe, and the finances of Christen?
dom are affected by evory unnatural dis?
turbance of Lombard street. In the
great empire of commerce Loudon is the
capital, and a revolution in Euglaud,
should it bo permitted to assume large
proportions, would unsettle values in
every market and causo deep and gene?
ral financial distress. Wo look on revb
Iuton there, however, as only a rem?lo
possibility) and our. faith in the steady
sense of Jobo. Bull, and in his over?
whelming conservatism, is so -great that
we believe, despite all the dangers that
now threaten England from the decad?
ence of the Queen's capaoity to rule
much longer, order and good govern- j
mcnt will be maintained.

"THE BAYONET "MYSTERYTN CAMDEN.- 1
Just os we were going to press lost week,
wo mentioned the arrival of a squad of
United States, .soldiers, who did not
know why they'were sent hero, and that
we lind our auspicio no, which we would
wait to see verified or not, as the case
might' bo. We are informod that the
circumstuuces:aro ns follows: Some timo
?inee, Messrs. T." J. Ancrum, Jr., and A.
H. Boykin wont into the store of F.
Guss, n prominent Radical, about 3
o'clock in the afternoon, to purchase
Bornutbing, and an altercation having
arinen, Mri Ancrum atru'ok Goss with'a
small riding switch. Thereupon Goss
took out a warrant against beth of the
yoong men, for assault and battery, is?
sued by J. F. Sutherland, Esq., Trial
Justice. They were arrested uud bouud
over to uppeur at tho present term of
Court of Sessious. lu tho meantime,
Goss maltes nu affidavit ami baa a war?
rant issued from the United States Court,
bringing the ease under the Ku Klux
Bill. A United Statua Marshal-Slier
mau by name-came over, supported by
thu soldiers and their bayonets, aud ar?
rested Messrs. Aucrum and Boykin, who
wero tukeu before Commissioner Gayle,
and bouud over to appear at the Unite 1
States Court, to be held at Columbia, on
thu Uh day of next month. To thu
credit of the Marshal bo it said, bo did
not curry tho soldiers with bim, but
wont down quietly and performed his
unpleasant duty ns agreeably as was pos?
sible under the ci rou insta noes. Whoo
called upon by Judge Meltou to know
whether he had any bills to be given out
to the grand jury, J. M. Davis, Esq.,
ucting Solicitor, stated (obis Honor that
he hud been informed that a prosecution
had been eutered in the United States
Court against Messrs. Boykin und An
erutn, by Goss, for the same offence for
which he then bad a bill to give out, but
did not do so, preferring to wait until it
was seen what was to be douo iu the
United States Court.
This is a rather unusual case, but it
really is nothing more or less thuu a
simple assault and battery, aud bus no?
thing more to do with Ku Kluxisin than
n larceny has. The resuit of this at?
tempt to grutify malice will noon be seen,
us the United States Court will convene
in Columbia next week. Messrs. xVn
crum and Boykin buvo cugaged counsel,
who will appear for them if it becomes
necessary.-Camden Journal.
The half crown, two shillings and six?
pence, made memorable alike by prose
and poetry, that convenient sub-division
of British currency, which always came
in so handy where a shilling would be
too little und a crown too much; the old,
tho glorious hulf-crown, which might
well deserve the name of a British insti?
tution in itself, will, ulusl soon be a thing
of the past. According to the London
Times, the two and a half shilling piece
has ceased to be coined at thu British
mint. The discussion caused by the
proposed modification of the English
currency has, it is stated, revived the
proposition that a teupenny piece, cor?
responding in value to tho Kreuch traue,
should be coined instead. Three of
these new coius would be equal to the ex?
isting half-crown, and five would be equal
to the American dollar. But the British?
ers don't see it. They have a natural
fondness for the time honored crown and
half crown, whieh they cannot get over,
und the Times says that it is evident that
the feeling against the abolition of "two
six" is very strong among n large portion
of the English public.
A CIRCUS DESTKOYED BY FUIE.-A few
days sinco the three large circus tents of
Cider's oircus were destroyed by lire in
Reedsburg, Michigan, and ont of 150
horses belonging to the show, forty-one
were burned to death. One of tho can
vusmeu let foll a lighted torch into a
large quantity of loose straw, and, in en
instant thereafter, the flames communi?
cated with the bedding of the horses,
roastiug to death nineteen of tho ani?
mals. Twenty-one horses were rescued
in a damaged condition, some with their
eyes burnt out, some entirely skinned,
aud others with their hoofs so badly
burned that blood streamed from their
foot at every step. Several of the poor
animals, wild with excitement and j min,
strayed off into the country and were
found between three and four miles from
the scene of the disaster. The horses
belonged mai u ly to the baggage wagons,
the company losing only oue ring hors?*.
The tire was a severe blow to Mr. Older,
whoso loss is estimated at $10,000.
A MODERN PYTHAGOREAN.-Bonan!,
the eccentric Frenchman, who left his
fortune to tho New York Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to Auimals, it
was elicited during the testimony in
probate proceedings on the 20th inst.,
wus a believer iu the doctrines of Pytha?
goras, and confidently looked forward to
the passage of his soul into the body
of un animal. This certainly puts a
now phase upon the matter of tho be?
quest, and would make it appear that
tho donation is not such a benevolent
act after all, but rather a piece of wiso
forethought and precaution, in enso tho
eccentric Frenchman's spirit should
{coma to animate a Fourth avenue cur
