COLUMBIA, S. C.
"Wednesday Horning, June 6,1872.
Mr. Sumner'* Speech.
The great event of the day is the pow?
erful arraignment of Grant by Sumner,
(in the Senate, on Friday last. The
speech was a most elaborate one, skillful
-ia arrangement, abounding in authori?
ties, pleasing in its rhetoric and most
irresistible in its conclusion. The New
York Herald-though a strong advocate
of Grant-is forced to say of the effect
t of Mr. Sumner's speech upon Grant:
"Every weak point in the armor is
. pieroed and punctured until, as he draws
to a close, it seems as if' there were not
an unpunotared square inch from the
.helmet to the heel."
Mr. Sumner opens with au avowal of
his fidelity to the Republican party, re?
fers to his connection with it at its origin
An 1851, his persistent labors iu its be
" half np to the present doy, and expresses
''his deep sorrow at seeing this great party,
v primarily so pare in its principles, and
apparently destined to endure forever,
and continue its efforts for the good of
'man, subjeoted to the will of one man
ad made an ignominious instrument of
despotism. Then comes the crushing
attack upon Grant, whose nepotism, dis
? graceful habit of receiving gifts, utter
. disregard of the Constitution and civil
1 law, military usurpations and personal
unfitness for his high position, are por?
trayed in words of eleotrio power and
^?loquence. He enters into an exhaustive
. discussion of nepotism, traces its origin
-away back to the Papal history of Borne,
-dissects it, shows its nature and influ?
ence, and recites from the letters and
-works of our greatest statesmen-Jeffer?
son, Washington, Madison, Adams and
others-passages showing the utter ab
faorenoe whioh these great men felt of
auoh an abase of power and trust, and
.compares their pure example with the
-disgraceful conduct of Grant, who bas
- appointed more of his relatives to office
. than all the other Presidents pat toge?
ther, from Washington down. The
- "taking of gifts" is next attacked, and
its baneful results dearly shown. The
?wards of Scripture: "Thou shalt not
.wrest judgment, thou shalt not respect
^persons, neither take a gift, for a gift
.doth blind the eyes of the wise," furnish
-a text to the great Senator, and he harls
-his shafts of satire and of vehement in?
dignation right and left into the exposed
^breast of the greatest gift-taker of the
Grant is compared in this respect to
Washington, Brougham and other great
mon, and an incident is related of Wash?
ington who, even while out of public
servies, refuted to accept a gift of cer?
tain shares in a canal company, Baying
as one of his reasons for refusing, "If I
, -accepted, should I not henceforth be
-considered as a dependent?" The Santo
Domingo annexation s?beme oomes in,
too, to afford the Senator a striking in?
stance of Grant's usurping disposition,
rand desire to seise opon the war powers
of the Government. The unauthorized
stipulation of Grant with Baez, through
his military aid-de-oamp, his promise to
lobby the soheme through the Senate,
bia despatching men-of-war to Santo
Dominigo, actually occupying a part of
-the territory of an independest nation,
and assuming control of it as a part of
the United States, are dwelt upon with
.great earnestness; and the violations
of the Constitution and of international
? law made manifest. Sumner charges
-that Grant would not have dared to un?
dertake saoh a oourse toward any white
government, and considers the affair as
an insult to the black race. On this
point Mr. Sumner closes by saying:
"Let met confess, sir, that while at
each stage I have felt this tyranny most
?keenly, and never doubted that it ought
to be arrested by impeachment, roy feel?
ings have been most stirred by the out?
rage to which, besides being a wrong to
to the black republic, was an insult to
.tho colored race, not only abroad but
(here at home. How a chief magistrate,
with 4,000,000 of colored fellow-citizens,
oould have done this thing, passes com?
prehension. Thia outrage was followed
by an iooident in whioh the same senti?
ments were revealed. Frederick Doug?
lass, remarkable for his intelligence as
for Iiis eloquence, and always agreeable
in personal relations, whose only offence
vis a skin not entirely Caucasian, was
-selected by the President as one of the
.commissioners to visit Santo Domingo,'
and yet on his roturo, and almost within
? sight of the Executive mansi?n, ha waa
.repellad' from the oommon table of the
mail steamer on the Potomac, where the
-other commissioners were already seated,
and through him waa the African race
dnsulted and their equal rights denied.
?Bot the President, whose commission he
bad borne, neither did nor said anything
to right thia wrong, and, a few days
later, when entertaining the commis?
sioners at the Exeoative mansion,
actually forgot the colored orator, whose
cervices he had sought. Bat this in?
dignity is in unison with the rest. After
Insulting the black repnblio it is easy to
/ace how natural it waa to treat with in?
sensibility the representative of the

MURDEROUS AFFBAT AT GRAHAM'S
CROSS ROADS.-OU lost Saturday night,
a white man, residing and engaged in
the turpentine business at Graham's
Cross-Roads, on the North-eastern Rail?
road, was Bssanltod and so badly wound?
ed by a negro, that bat little hope is'en?
tertained of his recovery. The two bad
a misunderstanding, in which the negro
picked np a brick and struck the white
man on the head, felling him to the
ground. While the latter was thus
lying senseless, the negro went off, and
having cat a tough stick and sharpened
the point, be returned to the prostrate
mau and jobbed it into the latter's
breast. The point entered between the
ribs, jost below the heart, inflicting a
serious and, it is thought, fatal wound.
A. physician was called in and afforded
every assistance, but he gave it os his
opinion that the wound was bleeding in?
ternally, and that the wounded man
coald not live. The negro, seeing what
he had done, took to the woods and
made his encape. A strong posse went
io pursuit of him.-Charleston News.

There is no end to newspaper enter?
prise now-a-days. The latest ease we
hear of is the original idea oonoei* cd ny
one of the gentlemen at tao bod vo the
New York Times, who took it into-bia
bead to join a traveling cirons company
for the purpose of giving the readers of
that paper an insight into the inner life
of the saw-dust knights and their span
gled-back equestriennes. We give a few
extracts from the writer's experience:
The afternoon performance was about
to begin, so I waa divested of my jour?
nalistic jaoket, thrust into a scarlet ooat
that was too small for me, and told to
assist in putting tho fancy trappings on
the ladies' horses, and make myself gene?
rally useful in tho eu try-way of the ring.
Within twenty minutes of my engage?
ment my "boss" confidently told the
ring-manager thut "that now supe you've
took on don't seem to amount to much. "
The ring-manager replied, however, that
it was none of his business; tbat Mr.
Howes had taken me on. An hour after?
ward, my "boss" declared to Mr. Howes
himself tbat 1 wasn't worth a oent a day,
and that lie had butter "shake" me us
soon os possible. Before the perform?
ance waa half- over he had sworn at mu a
dozen times for idling about, (ignorance
of my duties compelled me to confine
my effort!] to carrying the rosin-board,
on which the acrobats and gymnasts
rubbed the soles of their shoes, into tho
riug.) and after the final act ho indig?
nantly remonstrated with Mr. Howes,
whose unusual passiveness he could not
understand. I had not long been a
member of the circus troupe before I
discovered that all my previous ideas
with regard to this class of people were
totally erroneous-at least so far as those
with whom I was thrown in contact were
concerned. I had expected to find my?
self among a rollicking, roystonng sot uf
mon, who preferred short pipes and
tobies of alu to wine and segara, and
whose dressing-room was a theatrical ex?
hibition of everything that is coarse and
objectionable. And I had more than a
vague suspicion that some of the ladies
might be a little loose in their actions of
strict propriety. I was astonished to
meet a oompauy of staid and decorous
ladies and gentlemen, quiet and rather
reserved in manner, and, so far from
having a liking for dissipation, that they
were only too anxious to get to bed as
soon as they got home from the aven
I traveled with the tent-men one morn?
ing for the express purpose of seeing
thu tents erected. They were put np,
both the circus and the menagerie tents,
in a little under two hours. Now, tbe
circus tent itself, though not so big as
the Circus Maximus of old Rome, which
wa) one mile in circumference, is 130
fi'ot aorosB, and holds over 0,000 people.
One would have thought that it would
oocupy a whole day to put up the seats
alone. The menagerie tent is only a lit?
tle smaller than the circus tent. As soon
SB the animal cages and chariots arrive,
their canvas coverings are removed, the
tires, niles and springs are examined,
and the dust or mud removed from the
wheels. Presently the Omnibusses,
rockaways aud buggies, containing the
performers and the band, begin to
arrive in rapid succession, their occu?
pants hurrying away immediately for the
dressing-tents. Of the ladies' dressing
tent of course I am unable to aay any?
thing. The men's tent presents a most
curions spectacle in the oourse of five
minutes. In tbe centre stands a sort ot
high pedestal, with.small looking-glossee
arranged on the top. Before one glass
stands the "funny" clown, applying any
amount of mutton fat to his face and
neck, before he puts on the powdered
whitening and vormillion paint, which is
to give to bis face the conventional, half
ghastly, half-comical appearance whioh
olowus affect. At the next glass stands
a stalwart fellow, with nothing on but
fleshings and a pair of high jack-boots,
dyeing his moustache to a beautiful black.
Peeping over his shoulder is a compa?
nion, whose only garment is supposed to
be a steel corselet, putting at least a
quarter of s pint of oil upon bis hair. All
around are huge cases; one filled with
breast-plates, another with helmets,
others with lances, flags and banners,
aud others with great crimson jack?
boots. "Helmet for No. 10," cries the
property-man, and No. 10, perhaps al?
most in a state of nudity, makes a short?
cut to tho property-man by means of s
somersault. (All the performers are re?
quired to ride in the procession.)
"Breast-plate for No. 10," calls auothet
property-man; and No. 16, who is shav?
ing, nearly outs a piece out of his cheek.
Down goes the razor, for tbe rules
against keeping the property-man wait
mg are very stringent, as I found out tc
my oust the morning I rode ia the pro
oossioa. It was on the second day ol
my circus life, and in the good city ol
Providence, that I made my first and
lust appearance as a knight ia fall armoi
iu the publio streets. My costume con?
sisted of a corselet and pettiooat, snob
as were worn by the old Crusaders; t
steel breast-plate, a steel helmet witb
visor and nodding plumes, and a pail
of large crimson boots reaching to thc
kuee. The property-man also furnisbei
mu with a gigantic battle-axe, and gavi
mu very brief instructions as to how J
should carry it.
The thermometer stood eighty-fiv?
degrees, and the raya of the sun shot
down on the polished Burface of the bel
met with suoh intensity that I felt as i:
my bead waa being roasted. I am sun
that I could have steamed potatoes in
snlo that helmet, or broiled a portor
house steak on the outside of it. It wai
a patent cooking-stove on a small scale
generating, as the stove founders say ii
their advertisements, an immense amoun
of beut with absolutely no oonsamptioi
of fuel. And I endured that agony fo:
one hour before we roturned to thu tents
whoa I took the first opportunity to fee
if my hair was singed. Like a camel, '.
rushed for a buoket of water, threw nv
helmet on the ground, and dashed nv
head under the water s The next mo
ment I lay splattering at full length
apon the ground, with the sensation that
a cannon ball had struck me somewhere
near the region of my heart. I picked
myself ap slowly and confronted that
awful property-man. It WOB he, and not
a cannon ball, who had knocked me
down. "You're a niae sort of cuss, to
go ohaoking the properties aboat like
that," he exclaimed, as he picked up the
helmet and strode away. Fortunately
for me, my friend had so much to attend
to that he hadn't time to knock me down
again. Otherwise I think he would have
done so; for he waa very angry, stood
about six feet two inches, and was very
powerfully built. An BOOU as the Com?
pany had resumed the costntne of the
nineteenth century, they all hurried to
the different hotels to whiob they wero
assigned-some to snatch an hour's sleep
baforo dinner, others to write letters,
and others, again, to lounge about and
smoke. I retired to my room to seo if
any of my ribs were broken.
I had boen so intently studying the
fat boy, that it was some time before my
attention was attracted to his immediate
neighborhood. At his left hand, sat
rather a petite-looking young lady, nine?
teen years old, with a full beard and
moustache; and next to her, eat a little
lady of oight and twenty years of age,
and thirty-two inches in height, in a
child's high chair. She is married to
one of the employees of tho circus, who
is an ordinary-sized mau, and, strangu
BB it may appear, they say that she rules
him with an iron rod, by constantly
threatening to gut a divorce from him.
Of course, as sho brings him a consider?
able annual inoome by exhibiting her?
self, this is about the last thing he would
wish her to do. She gave us a taste of
her quality during diuner. Tho "funny"
clown came in late, and on taking bis
seat opposite the party, said, "Well, my
'small by degress and beautifully less,'
bow are yon all this hot day?" "Sir,"
exclaimed the little woman, firing up in
an institut, "I will thank you to treat me
as a lady; you deserve to have your ears
well boxed. If my husband was here,
you wouldn't dare to address me sol"
My oxperience of a oircus has con?
vinced mo of one thing-that from tho
proprietor down to the lowest eupe and
stableman, each and every person con?
nected with one lead a very hard life
and earn every penny they get; and
their short nights, their long journeys
in a bot sun, over sandy, dusty roads,
their processions in a mid-day glare,
their thoroughly broken day, must be
exceedingly exhausting to the system.
There is, too, a considerable mental
strain in going through a horseback act
in the ring, while the physical exertion
of the aorobats, gymnasts and leapers
must be something tremendous. And
yet, though some of them look worn,
they are all as cheery and merry together
A SPEECH DY MB. GREELEY.-At the
Brown University alumni dinner last
Friday night, the Hon. Horace Greeley
MR. Ca AI nit AN AND GENTLEMEN: I
profess no chinna to the society of colle?
giate men. To be sure, Amherst bas
made me a doctor of laws, and of such
the world certainly stands in great need.
At least, the laws need doctoring, and
some of the law-makers, too. as yon all
know. This appointment is a recent
one, and I accept the trast. There is
no pay conneuted with it, but there is
honor. And it is well to honor those
who honor scholarship. At Amherst's
suggestion, then, I shall try and dootor
the laws, and all good men will aid me
in so doing. Your President proposes
to aid in the education of the South.
What their needs are we all know, and
how much less than their meaus. Uni?
versal education is a prinoiple-nay
more, a duty. All men vote, and all
women are apparently likely to, al?
though I wish it understood I am not
endorsing tho movement. Education in
U8 neoesaary os polios or soldiers. Go?
vernment should not merely be the
means of keeping one man's hand out
of another man's pooket-it sometimes
does not succeed in that-its aims should
be larger; it shonld rather put means
into men's pockets. Government should
be a fatherly, beneficent proteotor of the
people. I think, with Hamilton and
De Witt Clinton, that the duty of go?
vernment should not be merely to rein
fovea the hangman and thief-taker. Ho?
nor everything that honors intelligence.
Colleges aro the great fountains from
which spring au educated people. Edu?
cation is the support of a journalism
which is not the echo of courts and ca?
binets, nor fostered by official patronage.
An illiterate people could not support
our institutions. Those are founded in
the school room. When that falls into
disrepute, despotism is not far off. Ho?
nor to everything that diffuses intelli?
gence; honor to everything that dissemi?
nates eduoation. Honor them as foun?
dations of free institutions and the life
of a free people.

The trade in human hair has assumed
snob importance of late years that it has
beoome a matter of no little interest to
those for whose ornamentation it is con?
ducted, yet who, nevertheless, possess
but little information on the subject.
The dashing belle oan, perhaps, hardly
realize the fact that the beautiful soft
blonde tresses whioh contribute to her
beauty had once grown in natural luxu?
riance on the bead of a pretty peasant of
Bretagne or Normandy, Auvergne or
Flanders, and had been bartered by its
wearer for a ring or a braoelet, or that it
had, perhaps, been the pride of the
reigning beauty of some Hungarian vil?
lage, which poverty had compelled to
part with it to one of the numerous hair
merchants, who now periodically visit
the European country fairs, and oarry
off thence, in exchange for a few glitter?
ing baubles, tho capillary pro Jacta of

where ?hey obtaiu the hair in its raw
