The fat contributor is about to start
a newspaper in Cincinnati. He says:
"It is not unusual lor people about to
start newspapers, to inform the public
in a semi-apologetic way, that they have
discovered a 'void' in newspaperdom
whioh they propose to fill. They leave
it to be inferred that they would not
thus madly prance into the uncortain
field of journalism did they not distinctly
see this void, and had they not unbound?
ed confidence in their ability to fill the
yawning chasm. And they fill it, too,
not unfrequently, and we bear no more I
of them or the void either. Wc do not
profess to have discovered one of those
voids. In fact, we don't care whether
there is a void or not. Instead of hunt?
ing up we intend to go to work and make
a place for a newspaper, and strive to
establish it there on the basis of public
confidence and appreciation."

Soulli Carol inu. Bond?.
What might well be called an indigna?
tion meeting was held ut G6 Broadway,
yesterday afteruoou. It was a gather?
ing of the holder? of South Carolina
State bonds, who have, owing to the
non-payment of interest due and undue
depression in tbe miirket vulue of their
bonds, been awakened into activity and
the necessity of doing sometbing for the
restoration of the vulue of their bonds
and the collection of the interest on the
same. They hold and prove, too, that
the State is abundautly uble to pay its
bonded indebtedness, uud also that it
would do so but for tho political leeches
who are at its every pore, surely and
steadily sucking its f?uunciul life blood
up. From the speech of Judge Willard,
a synopsis of which is giveu "below, it
will be seen how the finances of tho State
ure managed. Large imbursemonts
have boon received by the State, and
?till she claims to be unable to meet her
debt; but the bond-holders intend that
she ahull show causo for non-payment.
Mr. Drake, who was instrumental in
having this meeting called, was appoint?
ed chairman, und, ou assuming the
chair, said that the meetiug had been
called for the purpose of adopting means
to compel the payment of the interest
ou the South Carolina bonds. He then
introduced Judge Willard, of South
Carolina, who, in a lengthy speech,
proved that tho Sta-Se was able to pay all
it owed. Ho siid:
The Slate is abundantly capable of
payiug tho over-due interest ou her
bonds. She is successful und prosper?
ous; her products far exceed her ex?
penses; but shu is payiug exorbitant
rates for money-from eighteen to twenty
per cent. The statistics of the State for
lust year are sufficient to show that she
is able to pay ull she owes. The tax
levy of November lust for the previous
nine months umouuted to $1,200,000,
aud of this amount 3900,000 were col?
lected. Tho ri-al estate tux was not en?
forced, but the deficiency was made up
by the sales of Juno last, and hereafter
the deficiency cannot possibly exceed ten
pen centum. Thu sales of land in June
last for taxes amounted to $1,100,000 or
?1,200,000. These moneys have gone
to tho treasury of the State, and if they
aro not there-aud thoy cluim that they
aro not-they have been improperly
withdrawn against the will of the people
of the State, who ure willing to pay, but
who aro being robbed by a political
bunditti. I know of what ? speak when
I say that if the moneys of the treasury
?vere ten timos ns large the interest would
not bo paid under thu present adminis?
tration, lu conclusiou, the Judge pro?
posed that the meetiug send a delegate
to ooufer with the State authorities, as
such u conference might leaJ tn a suc?
cessful culmination of the difficulty.
He stated that two injunctions hud
ulready been grunted against the trea?
sury-one to keep the Treusurer from
recognizing the revenue sorip bonds,
which represent $1,300,000, and another
to prevent tho payment of legislative ex?
penses, on thc ground of fraud.
Mr. Hubert asked if bond-holders
could not take some aotion to prevent
the payment of fraudulent claims.
Judge Willard recommended the hold?
ers to co-operate with the parties iu
South Carolina und aid them in suits
Mr. Hubert proposed to raise a sub?
scription of one per cent, on the bonds
represented, so as to secure the recovery
of some $200,000 already taken from the
Treasury, bat which could be easily
traced. He said he was confident that
the money conld be traced to some of
the highest officials in tho Stute, and
that they should either be made to dis?
gorge or go to prison.
There was some talk about a para?
graph which uppeured in tho Charleston
(d. C.) New?, whioh stated that $500,000
had been sent to New York to pay the
interest on the bonds, but no action was
tuken in regard to the matter.
Mr. Drake then offered the following
resolutions, which were unanimously
Resolved, That, from information re?
garded by us ns reliable, we are satisfied
that the State of South Carolina is
abundantly capable of providiug for tbe
fulfillment of her bonded obligation
without overtaxing her resources; and
be it further
Resolved, That tho failure to provide
for tho payment of the over-due interest
on her bonds is not due to any want of
ubility to command the resources requi?
sito for thut purpose; on the contrary,
abundant means have, during tho cur?
rent fiscal year, been provided for the
purpose of sustaining the government I
of the State and the payment of the in- !
terest on her debt; but that the failure
on the part of the State to apply such
funds is to be attributed to the illegal
and corrupt misappropriation of such
funds by some of the officials controlling
the finances of tho State. That wo will
co-operate with tho citizens of the State,
who we believe to bu desirous of holding
the defaulting officials to legal account?
ability, and of providing for a just and
economical administration in the future,
and offer such aid and encouragement us
may be within our power.
The meeting then adjourned, to meet

was buried in the town cemetery on
Monday afternoon last, with military
honors. He had been confined to the
hospital for about tbrso weeks previous

fever. On Monday morning last, about
13 o'clock, while deranged from the fever,
he either j um pod or fell from one of the
hospital windows into an excavation in

total distance of not less than twenty
feet. On being discovered, he wus
found to be severely bruised and other
