the House to set aside an evening n<

bills already prepared by them, 1
whioh they have not yet bad an oppor

these measures is a bill providing for 1
construction of ten steamers, as sugg?
ed by the Committee on Foreign Allai
and apart from the recommendations

report. Not only the Committee
Naval Affairs, bot distinguished offio
of the navy, heretofore consulted by
committee, together with tbe Secret:
of the Navy, are folly impressed w
the necessity of an effioient navy, as <
present force is inadequate for extern
service in oase of emergency. Besic
it is said, among public men, that
relations with Spain are of such a c
racter as to suggest preparations,
looking to war, but to the protection

recently said by a high executive o ?L
> Spain shall be more disposed than sb
how to act with justice, and accord
to treaty obligations, Although we

The Court of Olaims, yesterday
. oided sixteeu ootton cases, nggrog
awards to the amount of $353,789.
of these olaims had been appealed, i
Supreme Court, bat the decisions'1
over-ruled, they wero sent back
judgment rendered in pursuance c
decision of the higher oonrt. One of
them was the Carroll caso, involving
over $93.000, and the other $23,000.
From the decision cf the Supremo Cour',
it is inferred that the Acts in forcent thu
time of tho seizure of ootton are a con?
trolling elemeut to determine the dispo?
sition of tho property, and the statute is
to bo thus construed, namely : Where the
property was captured during tba life?
time of tho decedent, thou evidence of
his loyalty is suflicicnt to maintain an
action; but where the seizure was after
administration, then the loyalty of thu
decedent immaterial, und tho right to
maintain un action depends upon tho
loyalty of tho administrator.

HoBUIDXiB.-A catastrophe- almost un?
paralleled in horror, disclosing the gross
cruelties of thu Macao emigrant trade by
ooo last and most terrible demonstration,
happened in tho China Seas l ist May,
und is recorded iu a parliamentary re?
port just ordered by tho Iiouso of Com?
mons to be printed. A vessel called tho
Doti Juau, ending under the Hag and
with tho authority of the Portuguese
Government, set nuil ou the -4th of May,
with G50 coolies on board. Thu.-c poor
wretches, it appears, were kidnapped
ami ?hipped iu tho inost shameful man?
ner. Once on board, thia large multi?
tude was placed literally iu prison
penned on the maui deck und fastened
down by three iron gratings, which
clused tho hutches, leu coolies ut u time
ouly beiug allowed to come on deck.
Tho ship sailed lu f dr weather froui
Macao. On the second day of tho voy?
age, as declared by Herker, au Austrian
seumau, the captain selected twenty
coolies and put them iu irons, with much
brutality, as un example to the others.
Cu the thud day, a difficulty ai ose about
the food passed down to tho emigrants.
Tue i n ter pi eier got angry, and struck
those who complained with his cane;
whereupon thu wretched coolies made u
nidi at their European jailors. The
iron hatches were immediately slammed
bade upon them, and when the poor
creature'? beat upon the beams und
planks to get air, muskets were fired,
down into thu crowd. It then appear?
that, in desperation, some few of tho
coolies set fire to a store-room forward,
hoping, no doubt, to force thu crew to
throw their prison open. The sailors
tried to pump water down upou the seat
of tho confiagratiou, but tho freuzied
men below pussed thu hose out of the
port-holes, <?o that pumping became use?
less. Thea tho fire spread beyond all
control, aud volumes of ?hick smoke
rolled into the main deck-choking the
mass of coolies at either end, who hud
tukeu no purt iu the previous proceed?
ings. Rfd tongues of flame uud suffo?
cating clouds tilled the ship below
halohus; while thu miserable prisoners
beat at the iron grating, tore at the fast?
enings of the deck, aud eveu endeavored
to get up to the air through thu venti?
lators. The port-holes, however, were
fastened, the dead-lights were too small
to allow of a man's budy passing, and
the ventilators were burred, so that
there was no nf cape.
'Io two hours' time tho fire was "es?
tablished on the -main deck"-which
means that scores ot the Chinese bad al?
ready '4>een roasted or smothered-yet
the crew never took a siuglo step toward
sating the lives of the imprisoned
wretches. They merely lowered three
boats on their own account, und pushed
off from tho buruiug vessel, leaving all
that mass of human creatures pent up in
u floating hell of fear and agony. The
sea was calm; the hutches might surely
have been opened ut the last moment;
yet the Dou Juan's captain and bauds
shoved off, while thu ship bluzud, and
while the coolies perished inside with
frightful cries und cercaras. Tho scoun?
drel master and crow saved their villain?
ous lives; a junk picked them up; and
the same witness who tells us this says
that when tho twenty Chinese in irons,
who were upon the forecastle, broke
away their fetters, and swam toward the
junk; they were pushed off into the seu
to drown. Meantime, ia their awful
terror, the survivors of the 650 below
found some means of bursting tho fore
hatch. Scores were by this time killed
by the flames or the smoke; scores had
been trampled down in-tbe frenzied rush
for life to tho uppor deck. About 100 in
nil at last emerged from that Golgotha of
anguish, and leaped at once into tho sea.
A. few managed to get hold of spars aud
floating gear, and hung upon these till
some fishing boats picked thom up next
morning. The majority were already
mortally injured when they escaped, or
were drowned, or crushed by the f alli nu
shaine and spars of tho ship. But at
least 500 were first scorched to death, or
choked and trampled dead, before the
infernal prison-gate waa forced by the
breaking open of the hatches, which tho
saptuiu and crew had so shamefully left

The Beaufort Republican says: "A
gentleman digging in his garden on Bay
street, on Wednesday last, unearthed a
Bk ele ton, which had evidently been
buried a long time. How it got there is
a mystery, as it was covered by only a
few inobes of dirt. A surgeon was
oalled upon who, after a minute exami?
nation, pronounced it to be that of a '
female, about ten years old, and much
worn. It was one of the tilter variety,
with fifteen springs."

! Oa.pt. Charles V. Hamilton Denles Impli?
cation with tl?? McDuflle Hobben,
Yesterday oar reporter had an inter?
view with Capt. Charlee V. Hamilton,
, the alleged leader of the band of rob
I bers, and who was convicted at the last
j term of McDuffie Superior Court, and
I sentenced to tea years' imprisonment in
I the penitentiary for robbery.
I Capt. Hamilton said: I wish to make
' a statement in regard to the evideuce of
Long and Willis, aud also iu regard to
the previous character of those men. It
was ? tissue of lies from beginning to
end. Long's statement was identical
with a passage in a book called "The
Fancy Man; or, A November Day in Bos?
ton." Long had this book hero iu jail
with him arid learned that passage before
tho trial took place. Loug stuted that
this robbery was bis first offence. That
was not true. He confessed to mo, when
bc was with toe in this jail, some timo
before the trial, that he had been impli?
cated in a number of crimes during and
since thu war. lu 1861 ho stole a horse
and exchanged it for a mule, which he
sold to a Mr. Lanier, iu Abbeville Coun?
ty, South Carolina. Ho said that after
thc wur, in 1865, bu was hired by several
parties to kill Mr. Lanier, for which
service ho was to receive $103. Be fora
he got to Linier's house, however, he
?included not to kill him, but to give
him a good whipping. Lanier wus a
horso doctor, aud Long sent a man up tc
his bouso to tell him that a gentleman
bad a sick horse down the road, which
be wauted attended to. Linier went tc
where Long WUP, who gave him 30C
lashes, ulmost killiug him. Ho was next
in with a parly who robbed au old mai
named Bou nt roe, in Abbeville. Lo nj;
was to kill Bountreu with a sledge-ham
mer, but us ho made a blow at him th?
oid man dodged, uud Lue hammerslippec
from Long's grasp. Bountree thai
jumped tu bis gun and the robbers rai
off, taking with thom about 0600. Im
mediately afterwards Long, with twe
others, stole a lot uf guns, pistols, watch
and $150 iu money from a party of ne
groes on Little Biver, in South Carolina
r inding that he was getting under sus
picion, We said he came down to Edge
Held and hired himself to Series & Hew
itt, who were working a guld mine
Whilo there he frequently stole gold
which another person was suspected ti
taking. He aud another party weut t<
rob a negro ou tbe Savannah Biver, bu
us they entered the house thu negri
struck at Lung with an uxe, cutting opel
his shoulderaud nearly cleaving him ic
twain. He afterwards tried to make i
appear that it was the Eluui boys, o
Lincoln County, who were concern?e
in this robbery. At Dom's Miuo, S. C.
Long robbed thu Uuited States census
taker in 1870 of his books and money,
He said that there was a man namec
Harriss came to him afterward, and lol
him that if he gave up the books h
might keep the money. He told Hat
riss he knew nothing about tho robbery
Harriss then went to a mun who wa
concerned with Long in tho affair, an?
told him Lung had confessed. The ma
then gave up the books. Again fallin
nuder suspicion, Long said he went t
Coweta County, Ga., and afterwards li
cated in Thomson. He also stolu a hors
from a mau named Blackwell, iu Edge
field County, S. C., aud sold it in Glin
cock County, Ga. Willis, who tried t
make the impression that I had induce
him to do wrong, was as bad as Lout
He helped to murder Atkins, beside
being engaged in other crimea. Ban
sey, io 1866, went with u porty to Lil
coln County, and searched the house (
au olel negro man, named Henry Cobl
for money. Failing to get uuy at tb
house, they went to the house of Cobb
son, whom they hung until he was nenrl
dead, to make bim confess where h
father's money was. They then wei
back to Henry Cobb's, where they wei
fired upon by a party of negroes. Ot
of Ramsey's party was killed and tl
others were all wounded. Last sprit
Ramsey went to New York to get cou
terieit money. His expenses were pa
by four citizens of the County, who
names I never expect to make known.
Reporter-If you nre innocent, Cai
Hamilton, why were you couvioted?

Hamilton-I was unable to ccipli
lawyers until tho last moment; con:
qnently, wus not prepared. If I hi
had a chance, I could have proved th
Long and Willis were induced to lesti
against mo, and could have establish
my innocence to the satisfaction of eve
one. That which did mo tho most hui
was tho report that I was u United Stul
detective, trying to ferret out Ku Kin
If I was that, I was certainly a dang
ous man in the commnnity.
Reporter-Long's ev id en c.; in relali
to you, Captain Hamilton, was vt
straightforward and conclusive.
Hamilton-Yes; but, aa I said befo
he took every word of it out of tbe bo
he had here in jail with him. Lo
stated that ho was twenty years o
whilo his real age is twenty-four you
This he told me himself. Mr. Eva
who was robbed some time since, has
peatedly said he would not believe Lc
on his oath. 1 am innocent, anti i
made to suffer for the crimes of other
Hamilton then stated that he was be
ia ?Spar tan burg, S. C., in 1817, s
served through tho war in Gen. Forre
command, ns captain of a band of soot
He was married in Edgefield, in.Fauna
1867. Hamilton is a powerfully ht
man, aud has anything but a pleas
countenance. His bare statement t
he is innocent will hardly be boliev
when twelve citizens of MoDuflieCouij
which was the principal socue of
mis-doings, after a fair and impar
trial, have pronounced him guilty.

SOUTHERN STATE BONDS.-Io the finan
oiul column of the New York Herald, of
the 6th, we find the following in refer?
en co to Southern State bonde:
The bonds of the Southern States,
never very uctive in this market, are
gradually sinking in the scale of securi?
ties. This will continue to be the case
uutil some different course of policy
from that now practiced in the South is
inaugurated. The financial status of
nearly all the Southern States is far be?
low that of their Northern and North?
western sisters. Since the close of tho
war, they have been drifting on from a
bad to a worse condition, uutil they have
actually reached a point which makes
repudiation almost necessary. It is not
yet too late, however, for them to reco?
ver their former positions, and bave
themselves from tho disgrace which at?
tends and always follows a bankrupt go?
vernment. Their political condition re?
quires to bo revolutionized. They must |
choose law-mukers who ure ready to go
heart and soul into the cause bf retrench?
ment. They mnst elect legislators who
are anxious to porform their duties in the
interest of the State und for the welfare
of the people, and who aro willing to
work for redemption instead of personal
aggrandizement. They must have of?
ficers less actuated by selfish desires,
and with greater affection for the public
good. Ali who are entrusted with re?
sponsible positions should possess, in
sumo degree, ut least, those cardinal
iiindificatious, virtue, justice, prudence
?nd fortitude, added to honest intentions
and disinterested motives. Until tho
Southern people can effect a change in
their political relations tbut will lead
them nearer to tho requirements above
recited, they must not expect to regain
the proud and commanding positions
they once occupied iu ino Uuiuu family.

DAY EVEN INO, April 29, 1872, it was re?
solved that a Committee be appointed to so?
licit stiMucriplions from the citizens of Colum?
bia, for the purpose of purchasing a new
Apparatus UH tho one at present owned by
the Company is almost entirely unfit for use.
lu malting this appeal, tho Company is well
aware that the citizens have been called on
lately tor subscriptions to purchase the
Stoamcre owned by the respective Companies
in the city; but as the amount required to
purchase /. new Truok will be small in com?
parison with the eost of a Steamer, tho Com?
pany rely on the well known generosity of the
citizens of Columbia to aid in placing this
brauch of thu Fire Department on a proper
footing. _ . ?
Tho following members of the Company
compose the Committee, who will solicit sub?
Committee for East side of Main street
