COLUMBIA, S. C.
Sunday tylor ni n?. April 7, 1872.
The Union, of Friday's date, has an
article under the above heading, in
which, as is the custom with Radical
j : umala, the decrease of our eommerco
is attributed to tho war. Says that vera?
"The war of the rebellion proved a
heavy, almost a fatal, blow to American
commerce. Confederate privateers, is?
suing from English ports, nearly swopt
from the sea a commerce which was the
growth of a century, which had received
the fostering care of the Government;
and, while it was the pride of out own
oountry, it was the successful rival of
the great commercial nation of the
Every short-ooming-every palpable
failure and the inefficiency and hitherto
unheard of cost and expenditure of the
Government sinoe it has fallen into
Radical hands-is thus attempted to bo
explained and excused. There is nothing
that so effectually demolishes those base?
less fabrications palmed off for argu?
ments, than a few dry statistical figures,
which are furnished by the United
States census. It sounds very plausible,
and may satisfy superficial observers, to
account for our loss of commerce by the
war; but it does not happen to bo sus?
tained by the facts.
On tho 1st of July, 1861, we find the
total registered and enrolled American
tonnage to have boen 5,539,813 tons.
July 1, 1865, the same tonnage was
5,096,781-showing a decrease for the
four years of the war of but 443,032
tons. On the 1st of July, 1870, after
five years of ponce, under Radical mis?
management, wo find the tonnage to be
4,246,507 tons-a decrease of 850,274
from that of July, 1865, and about dou?
ble the decrease that occurred during
the war, when the terrible rebel cruisers,
almost a half dozen in number, were
"sweeping American commerce from the
8ea," It is manifest, then, that wo must
look for some other oauso than the Con?
federate privateers to account for the
immense loss to our shipping interest,
two-thirds of which has ocourred since
the Alabama, Florida, Georgia, &o.,
ceased to infest the seas, and during a
period of so-called peace, at least. It
will bo found just when the Union aud
the manufacturing monopolies of the
North, that form the baok-bone of the
Radical party and shape its commercial
policy, are most loth that it should be
The enormous tariff on iron, which
operates to put money in the pockets of
the iron dealers of Pennsylvania, at the
expense of the rest of the oountry,
and particularly tho Sooth and West,
prevents us from buying iron cheap,
and thereby disables us from competing
in ship building with England, sinoe
the chango from wooden to iron ships.
The next best thing, of course, that we
could do to support our commorco, as
from the protective turiff wo cannot
build our own ships, would bo, to buy
them as cheaply as possible ubroad.
This is the object of tho bill referred to
by the Union, entitled "A bill to pro?
vide for tho registration of forcigu built
vessels owned by citizens of America."
The tariff on iron prevents our building
ships auythiug like so cheaply as they
are built abroud, and then this refusal
to allow registration to foreign built
ships prevents us from buying them.
The consequence is, that being able
neither to build or buy, wo have no
ships, aud, of course, no commorco.
Was ever anything plainer or any com?
mercial regululiuns more absurd and de?
structive than those which owe their
origin and aro sustained by Radical pro?
GRANT AND TUE SOUTH.-Truly does
tho New York Express comment that
Grant's idoa and words of "Let us havo
peace," they interpret at tho South us
tho peace which comes from death or
from knocking a man in tho head.. Such
poaco-makers as Holden, in North Caro?
lina, Scott, in South Carolina, Bullock,
in Georgia, Rood, of Florida, Davis, of
Texas, Warmouth, of Louisiana, Clay?
ton, of Arkansas-mon who have plun?
dered tho people over whom thoy woro
placed of millions upon millions-are
but sorry peace-makers. And yet thoy
aro all for peace, on the Grant platform.
The peaco whioh Grant gavo to Louisi?
ana was Collector Casey and Gatling
guns; to South Carolina,* Akormau and
a civil posse of United States marshals;
to South Carolina again, the suspension
of habeas corpus; and to Florida, and
Arkansas, and Texas, the biggest gang
of political rogues outside of Sing Sing.
The Administration in these States have
mado a solitude aud call it peaco.
Edward A. Eggert, of Buffalo, has
written tho Lord's Prayer, threo times

A doad man being found at LaCrossc,
Wisconsin, with seven stabs in his back,
tho coroner's jury brought in a verdict
of "probable murder." A very cautious
Early on last Sunday morning a de?
tachment of United States Cavalry, un?
der command of Lieutenant MoDougal,
with Deputy United States Marshals
Loahey and Bonsel, arrived in our town,
and immediately commenced making
arrests, under warrants, wo learn, alleg?
ing murder and conspiracy, dating buok
to the eleotion riot at this place in Octo?
ber, 1870. Also, about noon another
small detnohment arrived from New?
berry, under command of Lieutenant
Miller, with Ohief Constable Hubbard
and Deputy United States Marshal
Hendricks. This detachment had ar?
rested, as they carno np, some eight or
nine citizens, whom they brought with
them, and lodged in jail.
The arresta were conducted quietly
and deoently, so far as we huve learned,
except that very little time was allowed
persons arrested to make preparation for
leaving home, and they were hurried
away in unnecessary haste. Several
were arrested withont knowing for what,
and no warrants were presented. In
one case, a citizen who was arrested had
a pair of new boots in his hand, but was
refused, by the soldier in whoso charge
ho was planed, permission to change.
This conduct, however, in justice to tlie
officers, we will say, we do not behove
would have been sanctioned or permit?
ted by them; and in justice to the
officers we must say that wo have heard
of no other than courteous bearing on
their part, and wo trust to be able to
give a good account of them when they
leave. If, however, we should hear of
anything to the contrary, wo shall not
hesitate to speak of it, as there is no ex?
cuse for a soldier conducting himself
otherwise than gentlemanly. As to
Lieutenant Miller, he has been among
us before, and it affords us pleasure to
bo able to testify to hie high soldiery
bearing and gentlemanly depurtmcnt, at
the same tims, we believe the servios
has in him an officer who will do his
duty faithfully. This any officer may
do, yet do bis whole duty, without sub?
jecting unfortunates, who may fall into
his hands, to unnecessary rigor or harsh?
ness. Arresting innocent men, and
dragging them from their families, as we
believe in this case, is a great hardship,
even though it be done with the utmost
cure and tenderness. Tho scenes wo
witnessed on last Sunday, in this village,
were enough to have touohed a heart of
stone-wives, sisters, mothers and little
children clinging to the necks ol hus?
bands, brothers, sons and fathers, and
Bending np a wail of grief that was
pitiable in the extreme. The futo of
others who had preceded, prison bars
and dungeons were brought vividly to
thoir minds. But faith in the innocence
of the accused should be, and doubtless
is, a consoling reflection to them. Yet
it is a hard fute for quiet, peaceable citi?
zens, many of them advanced in years,
to be deprived of their liberties and
thrown into a loathsome prison, theil
business negleoted and sufferiug because
of their imprisonment. What are we tc
think of a government that, instead ol
protecting, lend.! its soldiers to a part}
ring to oppresB its citizens? Does this
look like giving us even peace, to sn]
nothing of protection?
Some of the soldiers resorted to luv
tricks to extort money from their color
ed friends whilo they were here, bj
levying a small tax per capita, charging
from twenty-five to seveuty-fivo ceub
for the privilege of passing through th*
pickot lines on the outskirts of the town
In one case, the darkey had no money
but had a pooket-knife; so they polite!;
appropriated that little article of tb?
poor negro, and left him to whistle fo
another. This was done by these th
negroes call "God's people." It ma;
ulso give a faint idea of the kind of ruf
hans, (some of thom, at least,) by whoo
we uro governed at present, lu justic
to others among them, however, whoa
conduct was more becoming a soldier
wo must say that wo huvu heard of les
ill behavior among thom thitu wo hai
anticipated. Wo will ulso remark thu
we feel sure the officers in command di
not sanction or approve tho conduc
alluded to above. We aro willing I
praise, and it affords us pleasure to il
so whero it is deserved, yet wa are nc
afraid to blame where censure is dut
and no throats of vengoanco upon oui
self or others shall deter us from pul
lishing facts of outrages as they ma
occur. In this conoce:iou, it gives ti
pleasure to mention a Kindly and ht
mane act conceruing tho arrest of Co
B. S. Jones, who, suffering from
wound lately received, being arrested u
Sunday at his residence nour Cliutoi
waB permitted to romain at home. Th

expect under the circumstances.
Capt. Hubbard very properly, aa wi
his duty, furnished aud paid for tl
transportation of the .prisoners ho a
rested, but Deputy Marshal Hcudricl
flatly refused to pay anything, remar
ing that if tho prisoners did not furnii
thoir own transportation, they won
havo to walk. His manner of refnsi
too, was not as courteous us wo hu
soon gentlemen act under similar ci
cumstuueos. Wo desire to publish all
to put every circumstance worthy
moution whero it will not bo forgoth
in an hour, and wo shall do our part
put tho samo on record, for wo aro o^
dently "making history" rapidly.
Some of tho Deputy Marshals we
quito chameleon-like, changing thc
official capacity to suit tho nature of t
ease. Hence ono of theso officials (
rested Mr. A. V. Eioholborgor for
old difficulty which hud boon long si
tied between tho opposing parties, I
iu which tho Governor had offered a i
ward of several hundred dollars, thou
.subsequently revoked tho proclamati
and issued another giving full pardc
Mr. E. remained in jail a day or tv
when ho, on learning for what ho v
arrested, produced hie pardon and was
releat e 1.
One of the roads leading out of the
village was kept constantly picketed, and
every man passing ont was overhauled
until examination of warrants could bo
made to ascot tain whether the officials
had such a docnment to serve. Even
citizens oi ihe town going to their meals,
in some eases, were baited and "turned
in," until they satisfied the officials that
they were "all right."
Somo of our late visitors were sur?
prised, if not mortified, to see tbe feel?
ing manifested by many of the negroes
for tho poisoners, in going to the officers
uud begging that this one und that ono
be sot at liberty. The officers seemed to
think strange tbat such a foeling should
exist between the white citizens and tho
negroes of rebellious Laurens-some?
thing they had not dreamed of in all
their philosophy. They have left us for
the present, but with a promise-pre?
cious pledge-of returning next week.
Wo would net, however, be disappointed
shonld they forgot to fulfill their engage?
ment, though we would not be surprised
to see them at any hour.
And now, in tho uamo of liberty. Re?
publican liberty, has it como to this!
that tho sous of the revolutionary sires
of King's Mountain, Cow-pens and Mus
grove's Mills-who assisted in achieving
tho independence of this State-one of
tho original thirteen-from tho British
Crown, uud iu framing the General Go?
vernment by an instrument which ac?
curately and definitely prescribed its
powers-should be thus throttled aud
trampled upon by thoir overgrown croi
ture? Better that wo had romained the
subjects of tho British Lion-better tho
fate of oppressed Ireland-better that of
partitioned Poland-bettor tho peuce
and quiet of the silent grave!
In publishing the foregoing statement
of the doings of the receut raiders, es?
pecially the conduct of the soldiers in
extorting money from negroes, wo do so
under a threat of Mr. Deputy Leahoy,
made to us, that if published, the prison?
ers who left here nuder charge of Lieu?
tenant McDougal would suffer for it
that that officer would pour vengeance
upon them. Wo would regret publish?
ing anything that would eauso our pri?
soners any additional hardships, but at
the risk of the threat being carried out,
we nevertheless make the publication;
and if the officer in question is malig?
nant enough, which we can hardly be?
lieve, to vent his spl?en upon helpless
prisoners for a simple statement of fact,
ho will have to wield his thunder. Mr.
Leahey shall not thus muggie or put an
estoppel to our right of speech as un in?
dependent journalist, by such vain
threats us thu ouo alluded to.
HANGIN? AT Sunri?it-HOKIUDLU AF?
FAIR.-Wo learn by n gentleman em?
ployed on tho Wilmington, Columbia
aud Augusta Railroad, who arrived hero
last night, that Taylor Wilson, oolored,
was hung at Sumter, yesterday, at 2
o'clock, for the murder of Tom -,
also colored. Tho gallows was arranged
by tho Radical sheriff of the County,
very peculiarly, an anvil being attached
to the end of tho rope, which was ex?
pected to fall when the rope was cut,
and thus breuk the neck of tho con?
demned man by suddenly jerking him
up, instead of allowing him to drop.
The thing worked very badly, Wilson
being raised from the platform a few
inches only, aud very gradually. Ho
suffocated slowly, for a little less than
five minutes, and then succeeded in
raising his hand and drawing himself up
by thu rope. At this juncture carno the
most horrible part of tho wholo affair,
tho sheriff advancing towards him and
holdiug his hands to his sides until he
was too weak to raino himself again, aud
was compelled to endure a slow death.
Tho affair was described to us as ono of
the most horrible on record.

A Los ANGELOS SKETCH - SUNDAY
SCENES IN SONORA..-Tho Los Angelos
Si tv lias the subjoined :
There aro few scenes in evory day life
equal to thoso enacted every Suuday in
that portion of our city known as "So?
nora." AB moat of our readers are
aware. Sonora is inhabited chiefly by
the lower classes of our native California
population. Main street, the principal
avenue passing through it, is lined on
each side by a series of brothels, gam?
bling dens, and miserable billiard und
drinking hollo. As passing by an open
door-way, the voice of one calling out
nt regular intervals, and a deeply inter?
ested crowd standiug or .sitting in thu
iuteiior, pronounces it to bo a gambling
house, we step insido. Tho game is
keno. The caller stands at a small tablo
Facing tho op*>n door-way, and hus in
his huuds a tin cylinder containing the
:lice. These dice bear figures represent?
ing various animals and vegetables,
jouuterparts of which aro supposed to
bo on the cards iu thu hands of the
players. A few vigorous shakes of the
cylinder, and thu game und sing-song
jail commonces. So intent uro thu play?
ers in listening to the words falling from
the caller's lips, and to thu curds lyiug
before them, that the entrance of u
stranger into thu room is unnoticed, and
:onseqaontly attiacts no ntteutiou. A
girl of sumo fifteen or sixteen years ul
ige utters au exclamation in Spanish, aud
iltur comparing thu dice willi her card
is pronounced tho winner of the "pot."
We make our exit, aud proceeding a Ut?
ile farther up thu street, encounter a
^roup of Indian womun congregated be?
t?re the very corner saloon where they
liavo undoubtedly obtained the liquor
that has intoxicated thorn. With dis?
heveled hair, foaming mouths, and dis?
ordered and dilapidated garmuuts, they
present a disgusting yet pitiable sight,
tvhile their discordant voices, joining iu
lom? Indian song, grato harshly upon
tho ear. Similar sounds come forth lrom
:he open doors and windows of au ad?
orning house, indicating the presence of
jthers in a like condition. lu front of a
row of crumbling adobes are a number
jf gamo cocks picketed at regular dis
:auces apart. 13y-and-by theso will at
'ord amusement to their owners by being
pitted ono against tho other. They also
provide the means by which thu insatia?
ble -desire to gamble, which seems to
uavo takeu such firm hold of the native
3aliforniau people, muy be gratified.
L'orobauco a huud-to-hand fight with
tuives will close tho day's orgies. In
striking contrast with these scenes of de?
bauchery and degradation is that of u
^ouplo of Sisters of Charity proceeding
[rom one housoof poverty to uuother on
their blessed mission of mercy, feeding
the famishing and comforting and at?
tending to tho wants of tho sick. The
delighted countenances of the poverty
stricken inmates proclaim how welcome
their visits uro. Such uro a fow of the
many Suuday scenes in "Sonora."
A MOTTO FOR MORSE.-When tho fame
of Franklin had spread over tho world,

tho lightning from the clouds aud the
