Wednesday Morning, October 4,1871.
Prince Bismarck, who, it seems, can
do anything bnt be idlo, is now neing
his efforts to assemble a general postage
congress to perfeot a system of universal
postage. All countries joining the postal
league are to nee one and the same kind
of stamp;/alike in appearance and val oe.
Present rates are to be reduced, and the
entire plan made to work harmoniously
and efficiently in 'small countries as well
as large. It is expected that most of the
European States, and several Asiatic
and South American Governments will
at once join the postal federation. Pro?
vision will bo made enabling nations
not joining at the inception of the league
to unite with it.at any future time.
APPORTIONMENT OF RSPBESENTATTVES.
No aotion having been taken by Con?
gress at the last session on tho appor?
tionment question, the Secretary of the
Interior, it ja stated by the Washington
correspondent of the New York Tribune,
will, under the laws of 1850 and 1862,
make the apportionment oalled for under
tho census just taken. The number of
Representatives will be 241, giving two
eaoh to Illinois and Missouri, and ono
eaoh to Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minne?
sota, New Jersey, Texas and WiBOonBin.
New York will lose three, Ohio and
Pennsylvania two each, and Kentucky
one, while the New England States will
lose six in all. Some twe or three States
will probably gain an additional mem?
ber for large fractions, which will require
the aotion of Congress to authorize elec?
tions at large.
The Gaatein Conference, followed by
the meeting of Prussian and Austrian
Emperors at Salzburg, has led to the
adoption of a treaty in which Germany
and Austria disown all aggressive designs
against each other, and unite in a decla?
ration that they will, in a spirit of neigh?
borly oomity, oppose all aggression from
without. Germany, on her part, recog?
nizes the importance of maintaining "a
strong and intact empire of Austria,"
while Austria deolarea that "adhesion to
Germany is the will of the Austrian
Sovereign und her leading statesmen."
Whether this latter declaration be utter?
ed in honest sincerity of purpose, or be?
cause of the diplomatie pressure from
without, is nowhere definitely pro?
nounced upon. It is rumored that the
Emperor of Austria begins to find the
difficulties of his situation insurmount?
able, and looks forward to tbe relief
whioh retirement alone can bring. As
to Italy, the unity of the nation is to be
upheld and the rights of the King to be
maintained; but tbe Italian Government
on its part agrees not to interfere with
the Holy See in any religious matter,
and is to return all purely church pro?
perty to the Pope.

GEN. HAMPTON'S LETTER.-We concur
with the Barnwell Sentinel in the views
it expresses. Tho Sentinel says:
We have read the letter of Gen. Wade
Hampton to Gen. Hill. While we al?
ways receive with respect the opinions of
Gen. Hampton, and know that he in?
tends to advise for the best interest of
the South, 'we cannot agree with him in
the opinion that we shall keep out of the
next Presidential Convention. The only
hope of these States is in a reform of
the Government and return to constitu?
tional principles. The only party that
holds ont snob a promise is the Demo?
cratic party. If we keep aloof and re?
fuse to go into convention, it will either
be considered as indifference or sullen*
noms, We are neither sullen nor indif?
ferent, bnt feel the moat intent and live?
ly interest in the triumph of the party,
and are determined to exert our utmost
effort to insure its success. This being*
the case, we do not agree with Gen.
Hampton, but concur with Senator
Sohurz, that our true policy is to mani?
fest our sympathy in every effort thal
has for its objeot reform/
We think tho Southern States should
send delegates to the Convention,, to ex?
hibit and manifest sympathy, afford in?
formation, interchange views; but not to
take a prominent part, either in the for?
mation of a platform or the nomination
of a candidate. This is essentially the
work of the North and West, and when
they have agreed upon their platform
and nominated their candidate, the
South should bave representatives pre?
sent to assure thom of their hearty sup?
port and earnest co-operation. Notwith?
standing carpot-bag influenoo and scala?
wag desertion, the South is as loyal to the
Constitution as the day we went to war
to maintain it, and would be untrue to
ourselves and falso to our history if we
exhibited,tho slightest luke-warmne&s in
any effort to restore constitutional go?
vernment. To fold our hands and stand
outside looks as if we are waiting for a,
bid. tp Bopport that party which offers
the highest inducement, or as if we are
indifferent to the success of either party.
This is not tr no; we hope and expeot no?
thing from the Radical party; we do
look to the triumph of the constitutional
Domooratio party for solid and perma?
nent . relief.; Hence, we conclude, it is.
oar polioy and duty to show, to that
party, that we tiffy bttly-, sympathize with
them but will be pr?sent in the Conven?
tion to give our best counsel and entire
support. '? ? .'i 1 . lilt

Th? Little Game ot Scott, Moie? ?Si Co.
Nothing that their Radical lorda and
masters pan do-whether tragedy,
comedy pr farco- excite? other than a
mild surprise in' tho minds of tbe peo?
ple of Bon th Carolina. The political
and social leaders of the dominant party
have exhausted the crimes of the deca?
logue, and, unless they suddenly become
unselfish, magnanimous and pure, none
of their antics will came this pooplo
either astonishment or mortification.
We know, 'hoy, are busily engaged in
adding tb their ill-gotten gains. Wo
know that they desire to stand os an in?
surmountable barrier between the whites
and the honest blacks. We know that
what they hove won by fraud they nre
eager to retain by force. But nono of
these things, whether os inchoate ideas
or as accomplishing facts, can create a
sensation here, whatever their effects
upon the tender susceptibilities of tho
North. We would not oomparo upright
Republican leaders iu the North und
West, with tho unsavory knaves who
hold domini?n in tho South. Whatever
their political idio&yncracies, Mr. Gree?
ley and Mr. Fish und their like are high
minded, conscientious uud pure. As
much cannot be said for the Scotts, the
Maokeys and the H?ges who hold cor?
responding positions in the Southorn
States. Nuy, wo could uot, with justice,
place any one of the graceless loons who
now control our public and private for?
tunes, upon u moral equality with tho
humblest negro who picks cotton on the
coast, or hoes corn nuder the shadows of
the azure mountain ranr-e. Yet it is
Scott, and Moses, and Hogc, and their
companions who contrive tn hoodwink
respectable'people in the North, who
assure Northern and Western Republi?
cans that South Carolina needs a second
baptism of Aro, who. ure ready to per?
form in this State the second act of tho
ghastly tragedy, that burlesque of jus?
tice and truth,'whose'first brutal sueno
was played last week in Raleigh. For a
month or more, the Columbia Union,
Governor Scott's organ, has preached
the wrath to come. It has striven, by
malicious fabrications and by perver?
sions of the truth, to fire the Radical
heart. And ut last the order of pro?
ceeding, then shadowed forth, is de?
termined on in council and emphatically
and authoritatively announced.
A meeting of the Republican State
Central Committee was held in Colum?
bia on Thursday, the principal subject
for consideration being the making of
arrangements for the National Colored
Convention,' whioh assembles in that
oity next month. As this convention is
to be exclusively composed of colored
men, the colored Lieutenant-Governor
of the State, with the colored Judge of
the State Supreme Court, the colored
Congressmen and members of the State
Legislature, might have been trusted to
do what was necessary in the way'bf ap?
pointing delegates. But it was thought
proper to bring the State Central Com?
mittee together, and to call in as "in?
vited visitors" those eminent personages,
Governor Scott, Mr. Speaker Moses,
General Worthington and Judge H?ge.
What had they to do with the Colored
Convention? NothingI That Conven?
tion was the pretext for a new departure,
for a restoration of mutual confidence
between the arch intriguers, for a bold
denunciation of the Feder 1 Court and
of the white people of the State. Mr.
Ransier, whose vigorous protest against
martial law was still warm on his lips,
opened the ball. What he said is not
fully known, but he probably vibrated
dexterously between the poles of con?
tending opinions, and declared emphati?
cally that "something must be done."
We do not regard Lieatenant-Governor
Hausier as by any means the most sin?
cere and trustworthy man in the Radical
party, but his color is as much in his fa?
vor as that of Scott and Moses ia their
shame and reproach. Governor Scott
now addressed the meeting "by invita?
tion," and expressed his determination
to suppress the Ku Klux organization.
He assured the committee that "mea?
sures had been taken" to make the next
session of the United States Court in
Columbia "as memorable to the mid?
night assassin" as was the late session of
theoourt presided over by Judge Bond
in Raleigh. He said that "every pledge
of the Democratic leaders in the up?
country, and the pledges of the Hame
party in the' Tax-payers' Convention,
had beeu broken,'and that ho had no
longer any faith ia anything but the
strong arm of power." What, we would
ask, are "the measures" which have
buen taken? Does Governor Scott pro?
pose to bribe witnesses and pack juries,
as his party bribe voters uud pack elec?
tion boards? Are his paid agents al?
ready manufacturing a fresh supply of
Kn Klux outrages for tho columns of
the Union, or does he onco more propose
to remit the State to the tender mercies
of a drum-head aourt martial? More
than a year ago he declared in a publio
speech at Washington that "Winchester
ride luw was the only law for South Ca?
rolina," and he showed his sincerity by
hounding his militiamen on to acts of
violence, which would havo made a less
patient pooplo rise in armed rebellion,
and hang him before the gates of the ca?
pital. We are now threatened with ne?
gro militia and worse, upon the pitiful
plea thut the leaders of the white people
of thu State have broken their every
pledge. This charge is false. Every
promise made to Governor Scott has
been kept, but-and here's tho rub
every-promise made by Governor Scott
has been broken. There is no truth in
him. *A man who has been convicted
ugain and again of wilful lying strives
vainly to sully the fair reputation of gen?
tlemen whose publio and private life ie
without a stain. But one exonse is ac
good as another-to an official who, like
Scott, ia a candidate for re-election.
When Governor Scott hud said hie
say, Mr. Speaker Moses wus invited tu
address the meeting. This man. was a
violent secessionist. It .was ho who
hauled down the United States flag ul
Sumter-after its surrender, bo it under
?fi ifl ?tm?^^i?uimm^?mmm?mmim^t
0'ood. The first South Coolamin of
quoei-reapeot ability who clutc"^'' at the
prises o( Radical politics, ho has been a
partner in every corrupt Boheme whioh
the Leginluturo and tho ringa have con?
trived. A candidate for the Gubernato?
rial o ilion, be paid "a glowing tributo"
to the honesty and'integrity of bis rival,
Governor Soott, and excused bim for
being deceived by the promises of men
who "for twenty years had imposed
themselves as leaders apon the people of
tho United States.'' These pen saw
through Mr. Moses when ho was much
younger thau he ia now. They and the
peoplo know him UB ho is. und have
nothing more to learn. Still no has tho
effrontery to denounce Judge Bryan and
Murshul Johnson, and to demand tho
latter's removul. Of Mr. Johnson, per?
sonally, wo kuow nothing, excopt thitt
he is tho son of Mr. Rovordy Johnson,
and is u staunch Kepublicuu. With
him, we have no political sympathy
whatever, but we do uot hesitate to Kuy
thut we believe him tn havo doun his
duly. His fault, according to Mr. Muses,
is Unit his juries do uot convict innocent
mou. Those juries are drawn by Mr.
Johnson, in ncoordauce with tho slriot
rules laid down by tho Chief Justice of
tho United States. Hi; luis no discretion
ns to the manner of. forming tho panel.
His olli ci ul duties are disch urged in tho
way which Chief Justice Chase hun do
! oided to be just and proper. Tho pub
! lie must take their choice betweou the
opinion of Mr. Moses, and the deliberate
judgment of Mr. Chuso. What Scott
1 and Moses require is a batch of couvic
I lions; and, that their juries may bo of
the Haleigh kiud, they propose that
Judge H?ge bo put in the pince of Mr.
Johosou. This Hogo is n simpering
Northern adventurer oT tho worst cluss.
Although totally ignorant of law, he
was elected io 1868 an Associate Justice
of the Supremo Court of this Stute.
Upou tho henel), his miserable incapa?
city was so conspicuous thut bis party
wero glad to nominate him for Cougress.
Ho was defeated by a majority of 3,008
votes, but was allowed to take his seat iu
Congress, upon tho ground that his op?
ponent wuB disqualified under the four?
teenth amendment. Hogo failed of re?
nomination, and lives upon tho profits
of political jobbery and the crumbs
which fall from Scott's public table. No
man hus been more active in stirring up
strife between the whites and blacks.
But ho is an admirable tool, and, with
him US United States Marshal, Messrs.
Scott, Moses & Co. couut upon having
juries to their mind. They might bo
mistuken. A Unitod Stuten Marshal is
uot beyond the reach of tho law, aud a
place is reserved in a woll-kuowu gallery
for a portrait without which it cauuot bu
deemed complete.
How far Scott, Moses nud Hogo, u?d
their white attach?es may go, we do uot
pretend to say. They are utterly reck?
less and unprincipled, aud cauuot sink
much lower in the opiuiou of the people.
At their back is tho whole power of tho
United Stutes Government, used, to se?
cure the renomination and re-eleotiou of
Presideut Grout. Ku Klux trials, aud a
Marshal H?ge, are not required to give
President. Grant a popular majority in
South Carolina. There is a deeper pur?
pose iu view. It is intended to arrest
Southern mau by the hundreds iu every
Southern State, so as to overawo the op?
ponents of Radicalism, and restore Radi?
cal dominion iu Virginia, iu North Caro?
lina, iu Alabama anti iu Georgia. Inno?
cence will bo no safe-guard. The
punishment is measured by political
I necessity, and not by degrees of guilt.
A New York abortionist, who kills on
unfortunate woman, whom he betrays,
is sent to prison for two years. A
Southern Democrat, who is accused, uot
of murder, but of maltreating aod
threatening a Radical politician, is sen?
tenced to six years in the penitentiary
aud $5,000 fine. This is the justice to
secure which "measures have been
taken" by Governor Scott, Mr. Speaker
Moses aud the soi-disant Judge Hogo.
Fit instruments of tho basest tyranuy
which the ceutury has known, they are
ready for any work which makes DO de
mauds upou honor, integrity or truth.

TUE SODDEN TUMDLE OF NEW STATE
BONDS.-The New York Herald, of Fri?
day last, in its review of tho stock mar?
ket ou the preceding day, says:
The Southern State bonds were heavy
and lower under the depressing influence
of a sharp deoline iu the now South Ca?
rolina sixes, which fell from 54l? to CO,

years he dovotod himself to the study of

had discovered a key by which the appa?

could bo explained, and all its mysteries
laid open tu tho commonest understand?

relative to a gas machine, which bas

"In another column appears tho card
of 'The Columbia Portable Gas Light
Company.' The office of the company
will be found at 708 Broadwuy, New
York, whilst tho factory is located in the
city of Columbia. The automatic gas
generator, it is claimed, for simplicity,
durability, economy and mechanical per?
fection, is superior to all other inven?
tions of the kind. Au ordinary me?
chanic can disjoin and unite it iu a
short time. A servant of moderate in?
telligence is perfectly competent to
manage and control tho machino. The
light produced is soft and brilliant,
-whilst tho cost is fifty per cent cheaper
than coal gas. It is at once cheap,
economical and safe. It cnn be used iu
every dwelling, and is peculiarly adapted
for bouses iu tho country, or where coal
gas cauuot be obtained."
Thia invention is tho fruit of our
fellow-citizen, E. C. Plumer's skill and
ingenuity, and it is earnestly hoped that
a liberal patronage will reward a South?
ern mechanic's industry aud inventive
genious, and that Mr. Plumer may reap
the rich harvest both of honor and
profit, which he surely deserves.
