THE GABIBALDIANS AGAIN.-The Gari?
baldiens are on the alert again, large
numbers of them, it is said, having mot
at Genoa. What their objeot is, it is
uncertain, bnt it is whispered about that
Nice is the objective point, and when
taken in conjunction with the evident
good feeling subsisting between Ger?
many and Italy, and the fortification of
the mountain passes of Piedmont, a
movement against France seems proba?
ble. We hope, however, that no rup?
ture between Franco and Italy will take
place, and should be rather inclined to
believe an English paper, that these Ga?
ribaldiens really inte id to secretly enter
Spain and assist tho Spanish Republi?
cans in a rising against Amadeus, were it
not the Italian Government is aware of
the gathering at Genoa. Time alone
can solve the question of the destination
of the Garibaldiens.
Two VETERAN SOLDIERS.-A meeting

rals," whose viotories over the respective
treas aries of Arkansas and Alabama in
times of peaoo, have far eclipsed any
they won during actual war. Clayton is
the "veteran soldier" whose exploits in
Arkansas have won fdr him an immortali?

the penitentiary if "he were not a mem?
ber of the Badioal' S?bate, nnd kept in
there because he is 'dseful to Grant and

soldier" i of splendid renown, whioh he
won at the tail of a sutler's wagon during
the war, afterwards oarpet-bagging him?
self into the Senate from Alabama by
virtue of negro votes and Federal bayo?
nets. It is but natural such veterans aa
these should desire their patron endorsed,
seeing that his defeat would remit them
to.honest labor for a livelihood, and in
Clayton's case very possibly in his being
wade to answer in the courts of his
country for the crimes he has committed
against its laws.

Tb? Hon. Jamel L, Orr 4***t '?Th? Bayne
U To THfe EDITOR OP THE CH ARLESTON
NEWS: Judge Orr, in his recent inter* I
view with jour reporter, after full no?
tice that all he uttered waa intended for
publication, has Been fit to single ont tbe
"Hayne family," and represent it as, par ]
excellence, a fumily of office holders. If
there was no malice in this selection of
Judge Orr, (and I oannot perceive why
there should be,) he is singularly unfor?
tunate in his choice of the solitary ex?
ample put forward to give point to his
apologetic argument in favor of Grant'?
Judge Orr says: "The Hayne family,
for instance, I think, seldom had less
thau twelve or fifteen of it? brauch OR iu
positions of power and trust." Why,
the fat knight, immortalized by Shaks
peare, did not more egregiously multiply
the "men in buckram," than does Judge
Orr the Hayne family in this astounding
There were but two "branches" of the
Hayne family uuder the old regime. One
"branoh" were descendants of my grand?
father, Col. Isaac Hayne, hung by the
British, in 1781, as a rebel and secession?
ist; the other, tbe descendants of Abram
Hayne, who died about the same time in
& British prison-ship-he, too, like bia
kinsman, beiug charged with disloyalty
and treason by those who were then in
power. These two were the only male
adult Haynes of their day. For more
than a quarter of a century after their
death, there waa no Hayne] iu office in
?South Carolina; and daring the ninety
odd years which have elapsed since the
death of these two, the Haynes who
have held office, State and Federal, all
told, do not number fifteen. Instead of
twelve or fifteen at all times in offiou, wu
have, all.tdd, less than that number in u
period of ninety years.
The "Hayne family" have, ut all
eveuta, left room enough for Judge Orr.
That gentleman, though considerably
my junior, has himself been a member I
of the State Legislature, a member of
the United States Congress, Speaker of I
tho House of Representatives of that
body, member of the Secession Conven?
tion, commissioner from seceded South
Carolina to the government at Washing?
ton, Confederate colonel of the finest
regiment I ever saw, (whioh, however,
he never led into battle,) Senator from
South Carolina to the Congress of tho
Confederate States, delegate to the Na?
tional Democratic Convention at Phila?
delphia, head centre of Andy Johnson's
Reconstruction Convention, first Go
vernor under the constitution then
adopted, holding on by tolerance of
General Sickles after the auti-Johunon
Reconstruction Act, helping in the for?
mation of the constitution now of force,
and now a Judge under it.
I am surprised that a gentleman so I
various and so versatile-as the Germans I
say, so "many sided"-and successful in
every change-a man so eminently a live
mau as Judge Orr-should be raking'
among fossils and dead men's bones. If 1
the "Hayne family" alluded to by Judge
Orr were ever a power in the State, they
certainly are not so now, and it would
have been kinder of Judge Orr to have
let them alone. Though he may have
ont loose from all memories of the past,
it affords no good excuse for needlessly
and unprovokedly pitching into those
who have only these memories left to
cherish. At all events, he should have
been "sure he was right," before he
Judge Orr says that he is surfeited
with office, and will never more submit
to the infliction of holding one. I heard
him say the same thing eleven years ago
to the interesting regiment he then com?
manded, and whose fate was soon after
so melancholy. He told them that he
was more than satisfied with public
honors, and had outlived ambition. His
only care, he said, was to do his duty to
them and to his country. Within six '
months after this speech his regiment |
wt s turned over to his brother-in-law,
Colonel Marshall, who, with all the field
officers and half the regiment wore killed
in Virginia, and tho next campaign ex
Colonel Orr lived to be Confederate
States Senator, Governor, Judgo, Sec.,
and "John Brown's soul goes marching
on." His last card is, with tho aid of
Corbin, Bowen and President Grant,
to scourge the money-changers from tho
temple, aud to send packing the thieves
whom he, Corbin, Bowen and Graut
helped to pat in office. In his work may
God speed him. I would help a good
work though tho devil bid, and there is
no telling whom the Lord may choose as
His instruments. I. W. HAYNE.
THE MCLAUGHLIN CASE-THE PBI
BONER RELEASED, RE-ARRESTED AND

favor of the prisoner, and ordered his '
enlargement. He was then informally

and grand larceny, and gave bail in the

Col. J*. 8. Cotlinm, oar immediate
representativo ia the Baltimore Conven?
tion, having returned to his home at
thia place, on Saturday evening last, the
reporter of the Medium soagbt kin early
interview with him, whereupon the fol?
lowing conversation (substantially) was
Reporter-Colonel, will you gi\e to
me, for the benefit of the readers of the
Medium, your impressions in a general
way ot the situation as disclosed by tbe
recent event? at Baltimore?
Col. Cotbrdu-Politioal conventions
being a new thing with me, it is possible
that I may have' an exaggerated idea of
the one at Baltimore. There was cer?
tainly an immense concourse of people
there and great enthusiasm. The per
sonel of the Convention was said to com?
pare favorably with any preceding as?
semblage of tho kind, and the names of
many ot its delegates, who have made a
national reputation, rihow that there
were not wanting those who were fall of
wisdom, experience aud popularity. So
muoh for fha general appearance and
character of the Convention. The orga
nization of the Convention was just easy
and harmonious enough not to nave the
appearance of having been "ont and
lt. -lou think, then, that tho Balti?
more Conveutiou was not cut and dried,
but represented the popular will?
Col. C.-I do think so. And as proof
of it, when the Convention adjourned
at 1 o'clock P. M., on Tuesday, having
appointed a committee to nominate a
permanent chairman to preside over ite
deliberations, I do not believe that it
was known whether Gen. McClernand,
Gen. Cass, of Pennsylvania, or Mr. Doo?
little, .would be the obuirman. Tht
choice, as you know, was made of thc
last named gentleman. He was, per?
haps, informed by 2 o'clock P. M. of hi;
nomination by the committee, and Bpenl
the remainder of the time, between thor
und 1 o'clock, in preparing the admira
ble address which he delivered on as
suming tho chair. There was an awk
ward pause of fifteen or twenty minutei
utter the assembling ot the Conveutioi
in the afternoon, before Mr. Doolitth
mado bis appearance, escorted by Messrs
Huffrnau aud Bayard. The speech wa
not quite ready at i o'clock.
R.-I have seen it stated by some o
thu opposition papers that the speech o
Mr. Doolittle was prepared before hand
Col. C.-Yes; and this was also bt
lieved by Borne of tho delegates to th
Baltimore Convention, and that Mr
Doolittle bad gone to Baltimore with hi
speech in his poakst. Such, however
was not the fact.
R.-What was the effect of the speec
upon the Convention?
Col. C.-It was very impressive. Mi
Doolittle has few equals us a presidin
officer; has a splendid appearance, a ver
duo voice, is graceful, forcible and eh
quent. The npeech was reoeived wit
rapturous applause, and struok the ke;
note of the campaign now abonttoopei
R.-In your judgment, what will 1
the prominent'issae in the coming car.
Col. C.-This isa hard question to ai
swer. I would say, tboogb, that so far
loan judge from indications at Ball
more, that the people of the North ai
North-west are alarmed (and not witho
cause) at the ascendancy of tho milita
over the civil authority, and tho evide
tendency toward centralism on the ps
of the General Government. I belie
that one of the heaviest burdens tb
the present Administration has to car
is the state of things existing in t
State governments of the South,
heard no allusion made to the State
South Carolina that did not produ
manifest emotion in the Convention, a
the suspension of the writ of habeas ci
pus in a State governed by tho Radii
party, with a pronounced majority
30,000 voters, is regarded as a want
exhibition of power and a most flugn
violation of the rights of the citize
You will bear much of this during I
coming campaigu, or I am greatly rx
R.-What is your opinion as to I
result of the campaign?
Col. C.-It is of course impossible
prediot tbe result. Many changes n
occur between this time and the Hes
November. The present indications
that the movement inaugurated ut C
ciuuuti, and with singular nnanim
and enthusiasm ratified ut ]> al ti inc
will sweep over the countiy like a pra

"hard cider." The country hus b
playing a tragedy for twelve years,
the people of all seotiocs are hear
sick and tired of blood, usurpation
violence, of the establishment of mat
law, of military arrests and men
horseback; and if the nomination of
Greeley be, as the London Times
characterized it, a farce, it may all
more induce the two sections to st

lt.-The nomination of ? Greeley
Brown was not quite unanimous,
Georgia was one of tho States, who
a divided vote.
Col. O.-Yes, mid this was attril
ble, no doubt, to the high estimatif,
whioh Messrs. Stephens and Toomb
held as political leaders by some of
friends over the border. I was toi
one of tho delegates from Georgia
the dissentients were unwilling to
contrary to the known wishes of
constituents, but that there need 1
apprehension of trouble upon this
snore, that as straight as these "out-and
onters" are, they would not hesitate a
moment in deciding for Greeley as
against Grant. Senator Stockton, who
ia now aiding in the canvass of North
Carolina, said substantially 'he same
thing of the split in the Nsw Jersey dele-1
R.-The endorsement of the platform
adopted at Cincinnati, and the nomina?
tion of Greeley and Brown, you regard
Col. C.-Yes, praslie illy so on the
first ballot, and actually so on tbe mo?
tion to make tbe vote unanimous.
R -You think that Greeley*will go
into powor by an overflow of returning
good feeling-by a sort of political tor
nudo. But what of South Carolina?
Col. C.-It is hard to soy. I have my
opinions, however, upon the subject,
and shall not hesitate "to .show them
forth," for what they may be worth. No I
State in the Uniou will take more benefit
from the election of Mr. Greeley than
South Carolina, and in none is the feel?
ing of sympathy stronger for him. But
the colored people of the State seem to
be joined to their idols-they will vote
nearly solid for Grant, and having a ma?
jority of 30,000 voters, it is, in my jadg
ment, useless to make a fight in this
State on the Presidential election. The
strife and bitterness of former contesto1
will be renewed, without accomplishing
any good, and the raoe would be ran in
the old grooves of the Reform move?
ment of 1880, and with the same results.
R.-What, thea, should the good peo?
ple of the State do?
Col. C.-Better do nothing than make
a fight in the contest for President,
unless tho Conservative Republicans in
the State should make the issne, by pre?
senting Greeley electors. Ia that event,
we can exercise the right of choice
often a matter of inestimable advantage
to the weaker party.- Should this not be
done, it is probable the Grant Republi?
cans will split upon the question of State I
reform, which is an absolute necessity,
and admitted to be so by all parties, at
home and abroad. If any portion, fac?
tion or wing of the Republican party
will put u respectable ticket in the field
for State reform-honesty against disho?
nesty, good men against bad men-all
good men of the State, white and black,
Democrats and Republicans, should rally
to their support, and redeem the State,
if she be not past redemption, upon tho
simple issue of State reform; and if our
condition is past redemption, the sooner
the fact is kuown and realized, the bet?
ter.- Abbeville Medium.
THE NEXT POPE.-The last mail from
Berlin explains the canses of Prince
Bismarck's sudden and startling action
in regard to the election of a mew Pope.
His organa assert that the Cardinals at
the Vatican, in accordance with the
secret bull ispued by Pius the Ninth in
1870, have already agreed upon the per?
son of his successor, and that Cardinal
Patrizzi will be proclaimed Pope as soon
ns Pius the Ninth has breathed his last.
Now Cardinal Patrizzi is known to be the
ablest of the re actionary Cardinals at
the Vatican. He is the favorite of the
Jesuits and the principal originator of
the (Ecumenical Council in 1870. He
is a personal enemy of King Victor
Emmanuel, who confiscated a part of
his property in Tuscany. He was the
friend of King Bomba, and desires the
restoration of a Legitimist monamby in
Franoe. That he is bitterly hostile to
the new order of things in Germany
need not be said. He is, moreover, a
man of singular energy and decision of
obaraoter, and in that respect widely
different from the present Pope. Such
is the maa whom, tbe official organs of
the Chancellor of the German Empire
assert emphatically, the re-aotionists and
Jesuits of the Vatican have chosen as
the next Pope, and they declare with
equal emphasis that the German Govern?
ment will never allow him to occupy the
Bismarck bases the right of his Go?
vernment to interfere with the Papal
olection, on the ground that the present
German Empire is substantially the suc?
cessor of the Holy Roman Empire,
whioh ceased to exist in 1806. If that
argument is valid, it is difficult to seo
how tho Vatican can refuse the Cabinet
of Berlin at least the right to say who
?hall not be the next Pope; for the
German Emperors have exercised this
so-called right of "exclusion" at Papal
eleotions almost since times immemorial.
But the organs of the V?ticans say
that Bismarch, even if this right of ex?
cludion were conceded to bia Govern?
ment, would not content himself with
it, but that he wanta to go a step fur?
ther, aud claims, what was refused to
King Philip II, of Spain, the only mo?
narch that ever attempted to obtain it,
namely, the so-called right of inclusion;
that is to say, the right to say to the
Conolave of Cardinals whom they shall
elect Pope. They assort, furthermore,
that he has already selected his candi?
date, and that he is determined to' make
Count Hohenlohe the next Pope.
Wo have heretofore pointed out the
gravity of this conflict. It is certainly
one of the most momentous of modern
times, and sure to give rise to grave
complications.-New York Evening Mail.
