Tnesd*? Morning,Ootob?r 3.1871.
Oar City Afluir?.
?8 oar readers hove observed, the
allegations made in this jouro.u.1, with
respect to tbe City Oounoil and their
operations, has not been disputed. It
now romains for the whole transaction
io bu thoroughly investigated and ex?
posed. Let the citizens of Columbia
look to tho welfare of the oity. A ring
has fastened upon the city. Let it be
broken. The Board of Trade have very
properly taken the matter up. Let
their investigations be thorough and
searching. Tho eyes of all good citizens,
without respect to party, are upon this
investigation. Let this entiro transac?
tion bo exposed, Justice demands it,
and the interests of Columbia require it.
It ought not to surprise any ono to
learn that the friends of Napoleon III
are secretly organizing and plotting iii
Paris to restore him to the throne of
Prance. No one supposed thut he
would remain a privuto citizen. ntCuisci
hurst, or that his friends would bo idle
in his behalf .so long us there was one
chance left to nguiu proclaim him Empe?
ror. His whole life was full of trick and
plot; in fact, he soldom took a direct
path'to auy end, prefetriug ruttier to
reach it by devious courses. If he can
mount tho throne again ho will, the only
question being, has ho tho power to do
it? All present circumstances would be
favorable to the attempt, wore he quite
? certain of the people. Just now, the
people of Franco are an authority, which
is more than eau be* Baid of that hybrid
growth called a government. Tho dis?
armament of the National Guard is in
his favor, for the Guard hated Napoleon
and would fight against his restoration
to power. It is doubtful if tho regular
army would not support him were he
again to place himself at its head. It is
well known that many of the leading
generals of France are still ardent sup?
porters of tho Empire, and thnt they
would be able to control the army in
great degree. Tho strength of tho re?
public appears to be exaatly nothing;
the Assembly is arrayed against the
Chief Execrative, and the Chief Execu?
tive against the Assembly, and the peo?
ple have little confidence in either. It
is this condition of affairs which gives
the friends of Napoleon III a chance to
plot, aud even a chance to plot success?
If Connecticut does not speedily make
a marked improvement upou her wooden
nutmegs, it is to be feared that the in?
ventive geniuB of California will carry
that State aheud of her. At a recent
election for assessor in San Francisco,
the Radicule made a good many votes by
surroptitiounly applying nitrato of silver
to the name of tho opposing candidate.
As the application produced no immedi?
ate effect on the ballots, they were depo?
sited in the box without suspicion on
the part of the voters. But when the
vote came to be counted the chemical
aotion of the nitrate of silver had per?
formed its mission and the name had
disappeared from the ballots. A man
who would be guilty of snob conduct as
that couldn't be trusted with a five dil
lar bill a hundred yards from home by
his own cherished mother-in-law.

FIENDISH OOTHAQES ny NEGROES -A
report from Oreeubrier County, Wost
Virginia, gives the details of a most dia?
bolical ont rugo which occurred in tho
township of Palestine. It seems that ti
mau iu tho employ of Mr. Georgo V.
Purry hud a difficulty with Mr. Lewis F.
Watts, in which Watts was whipped.
Watts thou employed two negroes and ii
whim muu to go to Perry's ut night time
for the purpo^o of beating Iiis antagonist.
Thu whito mun retnuiued in the rond and
the negroes knocked at tho door ami
were admitted by Mr. Perry. Tho man
they were af tor stepped behind Ibo door
as it was oponed, und tho negroes, not
seeing him in tho room, wont up stairH
in search of him. As soon ns they start?
ed np stairs he sprang out und ran to tho
railroad for assistance. The negrous,
after searching in vain for bim up stairs,
came down and fell upon Mr. Perry and
his young sou and beat thom fearfully.
They thou seized Mrs. Perry, threw her
on the bcd aud tied her by the hair to
the bed, after which they brutally out?
raged her person. The fiends then at?
tempted to outrage a little girl only
twelve years of age, doiug her tho most
serious injury iu their hellish efforts.
Mrs. Perry, in ber struggles to escupe,
had nearly all her hair pulled from lier
head by the roots, but she finally suc?
ceeded and fled to a neighbor's in her
night clothos for protection. Tho man
who had gone for assistance returned
with others and captured the offenders.
They thou went to Watt's aud arrested
him and his son, and kept them secure
until next day. Tho news spread rapidly,
aud tito people flocked in with guns, de?
termined on lyuching nil the guilty
partios. Those, however, were secured
in a strongly built house, so that they
were not reached, although desperate
efforts were made. They were tried and

main securely guarded.

i'he Times says: "All the prisoners cou
fiucd iu our jail made their encape last
Thursday moruing. Sheriff Easterliu
went up into the jail for the purpose of

entered the door leading into the pass

lently against the iron bur fastening thc
door aud stunued him. While he WIIH
iu this condition, John ll. McQouge,
confined for the killing of Robert J.
Breeden, at Clio, last July, York McCall,
imprisoned for larceny, and a boy named
David -, passed ont. The sheriff's

stopped him, but the other two made
good their escape. On examining the
jail, tho sheriff discovered that during
the nigbt the lock on the cell in which
the prisoners were confined had becu
broken by means of nu iron bar which
they had procured in someway. Know?
ing that heywould enter the jail early in
the morning for the purpose of releasing
one of their number, they gathered in
tho passage and prepared for him, with
the above rosult. Owing to the beauti?
ful jury law that we now have, there was
no oourt held for Marlboro at the regu

ON THINGS OP THE PAST.-Lomax Smitb,
a barber in the Exohango Hotel, Rich

Virginia. A- writer in the Petersburg
Progresa satin tho old gentleman's ohair,
to whom Smith gossiped about old times:
"A nico collection of gentlemen, sir,"
said Lomax, "this oonvention at Assem?
bly Hull; mauy very genteel and nble

see again in Virginia tho best people j
coming forward to take part iu politics.
Aud yet, sir, there aro some great men

Aud Lomax re-strapped his razor,
turned our hoad gently and began again:
"And how did they como hero, sir?
