Th? State Finances.
The finances of the State are in a truly
promising condition, and reflect great
credit on the powers that be. The pub?
lic Bokools in severalCounties have been
?UBpendcd, for want of money, in spite
of the solemn protestations of the oar
pet-baggers to their colored constituents
that tbe masses shall be educated. The
different charitable institutions of the
State are also much embarrassed, and
the Luoatio Asylum, always an object of
Bolioitude to the Government, will short?
ly be closed, if assistance be not imme?
diately forthcoming. What has beoome
of all the money? The taxes whioh
have been paid ia daring the past few
mouths, r,t the rate of ten mills on the
dollar, for State and County purposes,
should have realized about the amount
of $1,800,000; and yet we have the
cheering information that the State and
the County Treasuries are empty! At
this announcement our rulers are raising
a howl of rage and disappointment.
Not once did the possibility occur to
them, that the goose whioh has laid so
many golden eggs might at last become
exhausted. And now that they havo dis?
covered this faot, they are mutually up?
braiding each other for results for which,
it appears, they are all responsible.
Legislators, clerks and attach?es assail
Scott and Parker, and those, in their
tarn, seek to free their skirts by crimi?
nating Eimpton. They claim (snob is
the rumor} that the latter seizes every
dollar wrenohed from the people to satis?
fy his commissions; that Parker's orders
are all protested, and that none of the
public servants can obtain a cent of pay
for their valuable services.
Often, in oar peregrinations in the
country, have we seen a fresh caroass
lying by the wayside. On all the neigh?
boring trees and fences, are perched
filthy buzzards and oarrion crows, eager
to glut themselves on the tempting
morsel. Bat jost apon the carcass itself,
crouches a mangy, gluttonons our, gorg?
ing himself apon the dainty feast. In
vain, the greedy birds hover around
him; of no avail are their efforts to drive
him away. He Buffers not ene to ap?
proach and partake of the least share;
but by growls and snarls, keeps them
at bay, until nothing is left to pick but
the bare bones. The inference is plain.
It seems now to be inevitable that the
State, under carpet-bag rule, will be
plunged into financial ruin. If it must
come, then, the sooner the better; for,
after the complete oollapso of the pre?
sent regime, there is some hope that
better, more honest, wise and economi?
cal counsels may prevail, and the State
Government be conducted, to some ex?
tent, at least, in the interests of the peo?
ple, and not solely, us is now the case,
for the enrichment of greedy office?
holders. The only cause of regret in the
present condition of the Treasury, by
euphemism termed a financial embarrass?
ment, is tho suffering whioh must ensue
to the pauper inmates of the Lunatic
Asylum and other charitable institutions
of the State, and the injury done to the
cause of publio education, by tho sus?
pension of tho State schools for proba?
bly a year.
The Superintendent of the Peniter
tiary, we see, has commenced proceed?
ings in the Supremo Court to compel the
Stato Treasurer-Niles G. Parker-to
show cause why he does not pay over
the appropriation made by tho Legisla?
ture to the penitentiary. What reply
this formidable legal action will elicit
fiom the Grand Cyclops of tho Financial
Klan, is.a matter, of course, of simple
conjecture. We presumo tho stereo?
typed answer, "No money in tho Trea?
sury," will bo givei. If tho mandamus
can go further than this, and compel
the Treasurer to show why there is no
money, we may have Bomo interesting
facts disolosed. It cannot be tine that
all, or even the greater portion, of tbe
moneys lately received from taxes, could
have gone to pay legislative expenses, as
we hear is alleged, for it is a well known
faot', that as a rule, the members of the
Legislature did not receive their pay,
nnd a large number of their pay certifi?
cates are now held by brokers and other
persons in this oity, who have been nua?
ble to get them cashed.
It is most probable that tho bulk of
the publio fonds, after paying impeach?
ment expenses, etc, have been devoted
to the relief of large amounts of bonds
hypothecated for loans in New York.
But there was no legislativo sanction for
Buoh a procedure; and tho inquiry springs
np here, whether the State Treasurer or
the Financial Board havo not been guilty
of misappropriating the public funds.
If the Legislature says that $80,000 shall
be given for tho support of tho Lunalio
Asylum, $80,000 for tho penitentiary,
and other sums for other specific pur
potes, and so on, aan the Finnnoial
Board defeat the expressed w?l of the
Legislature, und ase the publie monejs
for other purposes, and such as wore not
intended by the Legislature? Surely
not; and yet to ns there appears no other
hypothesis by which to account for the
want of funds iu the Treasury, unless
wa believe that that pnblio depository
has been actually and directly robbod.
France anti Germany.
Late European advices indicate that
the peace between Franco and Germany
is liable to be broken at any moment.
Franco, it is said? is bent upon seeking
revenge for her humiliating defeat in tho
late war, and the Thiers Government bas
been intently directing its efforts to tho
re-organization and equipment of the
army. It is stated that through his en?
ergetic measures Thiers has, to-day, an
army of 500,000 men thoroughly drilled
and ready to take the field. This is just
twice the number of available forces at
the command of the Emperor at the
opening of the late war. This fact, to?
gether with oertain threatening expres?
sions used by Thiers in his speech to the
Frenoh Assembly, about the 1st of this
month, aro said to have awakened tho
apprehensions of Bismarck and the Gor?
man Government, and steps will be taken
at once to prepare for any rash attempt
the French may undertake to vent their
revengeful feelings. It is not in thc
least surprising that the impetuous aud
warlike people of France should fret un?
der the galling sense of Prussian superi?
ority in arms; and within a few years, at
farthest, it might bo expected that they
would find a pretext again to measure
swords with thoir late conquerors-but
it Boems almost inoredible that they
should so soon have recovered from tho
oruBhing disasters of the lato war ns to
be again propared to tako the field in
Tho editor of this journal yesterday

NOTES FOB SLAVES.-Tho Supreme
Court of the Uuitod States delivered a
most important judgment, yesterday,
one involving vast interests at tho South.
It held, in a case from Georgia, that
notes given in tho purohase of slaves,
notwithstanding constitutional prohibi?
tions of recovery, are valid in law, and
the State Constitutions, so far as they
affect the question, are null and void.
All tho grounds sot up by the makers of
the notes aro overruled. A warranty of
a "slave for life" is held lo have no re?
ference to political changes that may di?
vest tho title to slaves us property. This
is a most important decision, and will
give rise to an immense amount of liti?
gation at tho South. Guradvice to par?
ties interested is to meet and compro?
mise all such claims at once.

A CLEVER DODO IS.-It h a singular
fact that whilo tho Colored Men's Con
vouliou at New Orleans endorso tho ad?
ministration of Grant iu maintaining
their liberties, appointing some of thom
to office, etc., they only say thoy aro
"not unmindful of his glory as a soldier
and his exalted virtues as a statesman;"
they nowhere recommend his re-nomina?
tion. Indeed, the resolution glorifying
Sumner contrasts strangely with tho cold
and even complaining compliment to
ffitThero has just boon held a general
election in Greece, the Government of
which is founded upon the system of
that of Groat Britain, and, according to
reports, twenty persons were killed ut
the polls. This smalj number of casual?
ties is said to be considered a significant
ovidenoe of harmony and good humor
among the voters. Among the motions
likely to bo ndoptcd by the new Parlia?
ment aro the abolition of agricultural
taxation, free trade, improved land and
marino taxation, improved land and
marine communication, canalizing the
Isthmus of Corinth, draining Lako Ca?
p?is, aud tho encouragement of mining.

THE BANKRUPT TBEAS?RY.-A special
despatch to the Charleston Nevos, dated
Columbia, April 23, saya:
It ia now cortainly known that none of
the newly engraved Blue Bidge scrip has
arrived, and-it ?B further stated that none
.will be paid f rom the Treasury until after
its receipt for. taxes. Many people hav?
ing claims are hanging around the Trea?
sury, to-day, uselessly; and the dodging
of tho Treasurer, to escape the multitu?
dinous presence of the claimants, was
amusing. Even the Judges have failed
to get their salaries. It is stated at the
Treasury Department that it is useless to
think of getting any money for schools
until next autumn. Much reliance
seemed to bo placed upon revenue from
dulicquent sales by tho Department, but
less coofidouoo is expressed by claim?
Bankers and brokers who doal with
the Treasury, in the way of business,
carry u look of farcical disgust ut the
present ?uanoial condition; while, at the
same time, they and other suhntautial
residents express the most serious fears
as to the prospects of tho future.
The determination to weed out the
barnacles upon tho ship of State is daily
strengthening, even in their own party
ranks, and the domands of the tax-puy
iog community are pressing ou every
side. The policy now being attempted
by tho Radicals to shift their responsibi?
lity is "too thin" to produce tho result
they desire for political purposes, and
there is a disposition among merchants
to combino with tho taxpayers to de?
mand n showing of what has been doue
with the people's money. Moderate Re?
publicans acquiesce in this movement .
THE RED BANK MANUFACTURING- COM?
PANY.-At tho suggestion, and with the
euergy, of Mr. John Green, of ?mr Coun?
ty, this company has been organized und
chartered by tho Legisluturu of Um
Stalo, for tho purpose of manufacturing
cotton into yarns, domestics, prints, ?fcc.
Uuder tho supervision of Mr. Greeu, ?
cotton factory has beeu erected within ii
few miles of our village. We learn thal
the machiuory for this factory hus ar
rived, and that tho muohinists are nov
opening and placing it in position, am
in a short time tho humming spindle:
will bo at work. Wo think Mr. Greet
wise, und he well deserves tho laudatio!
of our community for his zeal nut
energy in this matter, for ho knew w<
nooded a factory for turning our grea
staple-cottou-into yunis and domes
tics. Ho knew well that it WUH justa
important to manufacture our owu yum
und domestics us it is for tho farmers ti
raise their own supplies.
We think it the duty of our people ti
engage in the manufacture of cottoi
more extensively, as a measure of eco
uomy, and to assist tho development o
industry in the country; and unless ou
people become moro fully ulive to th
advantages and importance of establish
iug cotton factories at home, all tb
money must go somewhere else to pui
chase goods manufactured out of on
cotton, which wo could manufacture om
selves, as Mr. Greeu will do in a shot
time, and keep tho money here at boin?
changing hands all the time. Look ti
tho enormous per centago wo are payinf
in tho way of freights, which we cou!
save, on the articled we could manufac?
ture at home, and tho only way to sto
this per centuge, for wo cannot do it i
any other way, is only by building u
cottou factories. This is the foundutio
upon which rests all our prosperity.
We have been quito anxious for som
time to seo a factory of some kind reare
up iu our immediate vicinity, as wo nee
one here to infuso new life and energ
into our people. Wo hope it may clan

POLITICAL U.SI:S OF TUB POST OFFICE.
It seems that a new uso hus been font
for tho i st ellice in advertising politic
meetings. lu tho Now York post oflic
last week, on the morning of tho d
upon which tho recent Grant Republici
meeting was held, cards, postage unpai
wero found placed iu every ono of t
nu nierons private boxes of business mo
advising them "To remember tho Ora

would bo free. Tho newspapers geu
rally aro commenting upon this new i
vice, and tho tendency that exists to tu
tho whole mnohinery of theGovernmoi
down to its very minutest details, in
the chaunol of party usage. Much
the force of tho objection, however,
probably taken away from the oircui
stance by tho disclaimer of the Ni
York postmaster, who says, in a card

result of a "misapprehension" on t
part of the official in charge of tho oft]

MASSACRE ra THE INDIAN TEnnrrony.
The Fort Smith Neva Era, of the 17th
instant, contains the following news
from tho Indian Territory:
The feeling of jealousy harbored by
our Indian neighbors of the authority of
tho Government of the United States
exercised over their Territory, culmi?
nated laut Monday, the 15th instant, in
a fearful deed of bloodshed, falling little
short of wholesale massacre of the agents
of the Government. On the 11th in
staut, a white man named J. J. Kester
son, living in thu Cherokee Nution, near
the Arkansas line, about fifty niles from
this oity, come hore aud filed informa?
tion before United Status Commissioner
Churchill against one Proctor, also a
white mau, married to a Cherokee wo?
man, for assaulting htm with intent to
kill. Ho stated that while in his saw?
mill, on the 13th of last February, Proc?
tor carno iu, walked up without provoca?
tion, and shot his wifo dead. Proctor
then fired his revolver at him, tho ball
striking just abovo his left eye. Before
Proctor could lite again, Kestersou es?
caped. Proctor was subsequently put
on trial for tho murder of his wife at tho
court house, in Snake District, about
seveuty-fivo miles North-west of here.
A writ was issued, aud deputy marshals
were instructed to go to tho court house
and remain until the trial was over, uud
if ho wu? not convicted, to arrest bim on
tho other charge. When tho party ol
deputies and assistant* upproaehed thu
court house, they found it lilied with
Proctor's friends, armed to the teeth,
who had come to seo that he should not
bo convicted. A conflict ensued, briei
but terrible, in which eleven person.1
were killed aud as many more wounded.
Among tho killed were three United
States marshals, named Owen?, Hawkilif
and Wilson. The sheriff was also killed,
aud tho judge received three buck-s'.iol
iu his knee. Indeed, it appears frorr
tho sudden and deadly assault upon th?
marshal's force, that the people inaidi
the court house had beeu fully iuformet
of their approach, and we're pr?par?e
for them. Tho officials had instruction:
to make demands for Proctor only ii
case of his acquittal, and expected HUUI
r?sistance, should they attempt to nrres
Proctor after his acquittai; but for th?
murderous volltey on their first approach
they wore not prepared; hence tbei
Thia is oue of tho most terrible affair
ever known iu this country, origiuutinj
in distrust and jealousy, with which th
moro intelligent portion of tho inhabi
tauts of Indian Territory aro niisled b
had white men.
What protection eau be had, may b
surmised from the fact that Proctor lin
committed eighteeu murders and is stil
urihtiug. It is the stern d?termin?t io
of tho Uuited States marshal iu this dh
trict to bring to justico tho murderou
and rebellious crew in thu Nation at an
sacrifice or expense.

also, were the transformation scenes and
the pictures from the gorgeous soenery
of the Black Crook, which ended the
performance. But the panorama itself,
admirable as it is, does not afford half so
much enjoyment as the spicy jokes,

MANNERS.-Before you bow to a lady
on tho streets, permit her to decide
whether you may do so or not, by at
least a look of recognition.
"Excuse my gloves," is un unnecessary
apology, for tho gloves should not bo
withdrawn to shako hands.
When your companion bows to a
lady, you should do BO also. When a
gentleman bows to a lady in your com-"
pauy, always bow to him in return.
A letter must be answered, unless you
wish to intimate to the writer that he or
his subject aro beneath your notice.
A visit must be returned in like man?
ner, even if no intimacy is intended.
A smiling countenance is pleasant, but
excess of laughter should bo avoided,
especially when it is possible for any one
to suppose himself dorided by it.
Whispering in company is always of?
fensive, and often for reasons that per?
sons present suspect that they are the
subject of it.

TUE INVALID-A PEN PICTOBE-See her
pallid countenance, but a short time ago the
picture of ruddy health, tbe onvy of the
school and the pride ot tho household. Bho
was alw&ya welcomed by her schoolmates, tor
her lithe form aud pleasing disposition car?
ried cheerfulness into their rankB. Di'igeut,
punctual and exemplary, obediont and grace?
ful at homo, abe won the hearts of all. But,
alasl we are sorrowed. Those rosy choeka
and ruddy lips are blanched by consnmption.
Thu voice or.eo so enchanting In laugh and
song is feeble, husky and supplanted by a
hollow cough. Let us approach ber conch
gcutly and t&ko her hand. Do not shudder
because of the feeble ami passionless grasp.
The hand once so hearty and plump is ema
elated, and shows bony outlines, while tho
cords and tortuous veins aro plainly mapped
upon the surface. Tho pulse that bounded
with repletion, carrying vigor to tho wholo
ays tom, and imparting life, beauty; vivacity,
health and strength, is delicate to tho touch.
Thc feeble heart cannot propel tho thin,
scanty blood with force. Must wo loso her
while yet in ht r teens? Companions and
friends* gather around with words of cheer
and consolation, and depart with moistened
eves and silent steps. Must wo lose hoi? No.
thero is a relied Weean stay this destroyer
of our happiness, and not Buffer the loss of so
bright a gem. Something moro is required
now than dietary and hygienic observance,
for nature culls for aid, anti she shad have it.
1'ake this pleasant ut diciuc. It is invigorat?
ing. How it allays tho irritable cough, im?
proves the appetite and digestion, and senda
a healthy tinglo through tho frame. Ibo
bloud id enriched nervous force increased,
and tho heart hounds with a now impulso.
Seo her face brighten by degrees; the color is
returning, ber voice is getting clearer, and
pleasant words aro spoken. Tho strength
falters yet, but is gaining. Let us take her
out in tho warm sunshine. In a short time,
sh? will bo ablo to go without our aid, a Oberr?
od girl. This delightful medicine must bo
God-hlessed. It ia restoring health to our
loved one. She is emerging from hor sick
noss sweeter and nobler than beforo, and Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery must havo
the credit. It has raised her. Sold by all
first class druggists everywhere.
TUE LATEST SWINDLE.-Certain sanctimo?
nious charlatans would fain persuade the
world that diffusive stimulants have no medi?
cinal value, and that detestable slops, com?
posed of griping acids and drastic purga?
tivos, are netter tonics than the ?nost vege?
table ingredients combined with the purest
and mellowost products of tho still. Bul this
sort of thing won't ga down. The stomach
of our common aouso rejects it, ns tho physi?
cal stomach of every mau with an undepraved
palate rejects, with loathing and abhorrence,
tho nauseous abominations, "freo from alco?
hol," which humbugs aro trying to thrust
down the throats of temperance invalids,
nuder tho pretence that tho tilth will do them
good. It is not likely that while PLANTATION
BITTERS, tho standard Tonic ol America, ps
anywhere accessible, such sickening Iramls
can make much headway, but it is as well to
put thu public on their guard against them!
