LONDON, July 23.-In the Gommons,
" this afternoon, there was a discussion
upon the subject of the arrival of Frenoh
Communis ta in England,-during whioh a
significant question was put to the Go?
vernment by Sir Robert'Peel. After
alluding to the faot that Germany had
expelled the Jesuits, fie asked the Premier
whether the Government intended to en?
force tho section of the Roman Catholic
Belief Aot of 1829, which provides for
the banishment from England of all
members of the Sooiety of Jesus.
Gladstone, in reply, said the subject was
an important one, and must be taken
into serious consideration by tho Go?
vernment. He added, that though the
law in question was now nearly half a
century old, no steps had yet been taken
for its enforcement.

HORRIBLE AOCIDKNT.--We learned
from a passenger per the Atlantic and
Guli Kaiiroad, on Saturday, (says the
Savannah News, of Monday,) the parti?
culars of a terrible accident on the Jack?
sonville, Pensacola and Mobile Railroad,
about two and a half miles from the for?
mer city. The aooident ocourred on
Wednesday night, on the passage of the
outward bound train. The train ran
over a white man named Johnston and
his little son, aged abont ten or twelve
years. The man was horribly mangled,
his body being out completely in two,
and one of his arms torn from the shoul?
der. The little boy's head and body
wore badly crushed. It is supposed the
man was drunk , and having lain down
upon the track, had fallen asleep. From
the position of the bodies, it is inferred
that the little fellow was endeavoring to
pull his father from the track, when thu
train came along, and they were killed.
Mr. Jarret Robinson and wife, a vene?
rable and revered couple, who have been
for macy years residents of Howard
County, Mo., may, if they seo proper,
some time during tho coming autumn,
celebrate the sixtieth anniversary of their
marriage. What is most remarkable is,
that although the rather unusual longevi?
ty of this couple would indicate sound
constitution in each, yet they have
raised twelve children, all of whom ar?
rived to maturity, and not one now is
living. Mr. Robinson is, ve believe,
eighty-four, and the companion of his
lengthened days a few years his junior.

THE B AD?O AL CANVASS.-Last week
seems to have been a stirring one among
the Radical politicians. Large meetings
were held on James Island, John's Island,
Wadmulaw and Edisto Islands, and were
addressed by the Hon. C. C. Bowen, L.
C. Northrop, Cyrus Gaillard, T. A.
Davis, Hoyt and others. It appears
that Sheriff Mackey, with a few of- his
adherents from the city, followed the '
Bowen party, but, from all accounts, met
with very cold oom?ort. Mr. Bowen
made some very able and eloquent
speeches, and with such effect as to com?
pletely neutralize the distribution of
arms among the people by the Scott
Maokey ring, whioh Bowen denounced
as a trick to corrupt oud purchase the
votes of the militia. He said that tho
muskets were bought and paid for by
the State, and did ? not belong to Mr.
Mackey or Gov. Scott, nud had been
laying in Columbia for two years, and
were only given out now for electioneer?
ing purposes. That the State made
every mau a soldier between the ages of
eighteen and forty-five, and that as lung
as they did not injure anybody and be?
haved themselves, no man or set of men
had the right to take them away, simply
because they might not vote for Mackey
or Scott. He eloquently portrayed the
terrible condition of the Stato, and said
that he had no compromise to make with
the scoundrels who had robbed tho peo?
ple. That no man's life or liberty was
safe, and that there was no time, for the
lest two years, when any man who had
taken his life would not have been safe
by a verdict of a packed jury, and when,
if he had elaiu a maa in self-defence, he
would not have buen bung, without hope
of pardon from Scott. That he had
walked faithfully and fearlessly along the
precipioo in defence of the rights of the
people, and at whatever personal risk, he
would be true to himself and the cause
of good government. He made an ap?
peal to the women of his audience,
which, we learn, had the most marked
effect, and created much feminine enthu?
We understand that Mr. Northrop, on
Edisto Island, among other thiugs, made
tho point that General Grant was direct?
ly interested in the war again;-1 Scott;
that the strong argument against Grant
in the North was the condition of the
Southern States, and that ho was deter?
mined to clean them out ut any cost,
and that Mr. Bowen was tho right hand
man of General Grant in this movement
in our State; that Bowen was a poor
man, living on his friends, because he
had never been among the thieves, and
that if ho could have been bought, he
would have been as rich as they were;
that whatever has been said, Mr. Bowen
stood to-day a high example of political
integrity and personal sacrifice, as he
was unquestionably one of the ablest
men in the country. He stood in tho
gap when there was no one eise to save
the State, and he deserved the support
of every honest man, from the moun?
tain i to the sea-board.- Charleston JYews.
APPLYING TES PLATFORM.-Hon. John
B. Baldwin,, of Virginia, in his speech
in the convention at Richmond, gave an
amusing illustration of the way iu which
he applied thu Cincinnati platform and
Mr. Greeley's history,' to answer tho ob?
jections of those who are opposed to his
acceptance by the'Southern people.
Mr. Baldwin said he had lately been
in New York, and had met there several
of that class of gentlemen, one of whom
had approached him with a very deter?
mined resolution to persuade him to
drop the Ohappaqua farmer by some
means or other.
"How eau you Southern OT?? support
Greeley?" said this anxious patriot.
"Don't you remember what he has said
and written about you years ago?"
"Ah, well," said Mr. Baldwin, "we
have granted him a general amnesty for
"But," continued he, "you must re?
member his course during the war. It
is impossible you can support him after
"So it would be, but wc havo removed
"But, my dear sir, he cannot possibl y
be elected, and yon are putting y ourse) .'
in a bad position by supporting a man
who will surely be beaten."
"Well, we don't know how that may
turn out," wound np Mr. Baldwin, "but
anyhow we have gone on his bond."
And the solicitor decamped.
GREELEY ACCEPTS A PRESENT.-Gree?
ley has accepted a present. It was u
trophy from a ohuroh fair of the Roman
Catholio Cathedral, of St. Paul, Minne?
sota. Mr. Greeley wrote the following
letter in acknowledgment:
"NEW YORK, July ll, 1872.
"DEAR SIR: I have just received,
through Mr. C. A. Dana, your valued
present, for whioh I return my hearty
thanks. The weight of sixty-one years

the reception of presents whioh have a I
high pecuniary value, I gladly receive

and established not by the number of
dollars it may have cost, but by the
fond, warm hearts whioh gladly co-ope?
rated to tender it. Acoept my profound
acknowledgments, with my assurance
that henceforth, as heretofore, I shall
labor to smooth the rugged pathway of
poverty, and render our country first,

THE LATE DESTRUCTIVE FLOODS IN
ALABAMA..-The following letter has boon
farniahed the Charleston News by a large
ootton bouse of thia city:
MoNTooiiEi??,, ALA , July 18, 1872.
Therein continues. I saw a.gentle?
man from Selma this, morning, and he
informed me that the Oahaba River was
higher than it has been for twenty years.
The crops on the river are all nuder
water. This river runs through the
cane-brake country. The Warrior River
is very high indeed; it rose twenty-five
feet in one night. AU the crops on the
river are under water; also the Bigbee is
as high or higher than ever known.
There is no estimating the damage from
tbe flood. The orop is shedding the
forms and yonng bolls badly from the
effects of the heavy and continuous
rains we have been having every day for
ten days. It is impossible to give an
opinion about the damages; all the river
and oreek bottoms are a total loss. The
fear is that cotton will shed everything,
and things look very unsatisfactory to
me. The army worm is on us, and no
mistake about the matter; how soon they
moy destroy the crop, who can tell? Old
planters soy they will destroy the orop
on or before the middle of August. The
weather was never more favorable for
them; they are three weeks earlier than
any year Biuoe 1868, and I fear they will
clean up things in three weeks. The
damage by the overflow is immense in
this State. Thousands of aores are
under water, and have been for four
days. Planters are wearing long faces
this morning. The situation is a oritioal
one with the crop; fully one-third of the
plant in this State is late. If the worm
should accumulate enough to strip it in
four weeks, the late cotton will make
nothing, and the early cotton ?B shedding
very badly on the red and sandy up?
A FLAG OF DISTBBSS FLTING FROM
GRANT'S SEA-SIDE COTTAGE.-We were
told by a friend who lives near the Man
on Horseback's gift "Cottage by the
Sea" at Long Branch, that a rather strik?
ing and decidedly ominous inoident oc?
curred at the aforesaid cottage one doy
lust week. The inmates thereof, anxious
to exhibit their loyalty, determined to
run up the Stars and Stripes to the head
of the flag-staff, and thus fling out their
defiance to the sage of Chappaquo and
the party of the new revolution. Ac?
cordingly, the flag was brought out, the
ropes adjusted, and the immortal bunt?
ing run up, when, horror of horrors! os
it was flung out to the breeze it appeared
A perfect howl of despair arose from
tho terror-stricken crew when they dis?
covered their mistake, and so paralyzed
were they at the dread augury that they
gazed at it for several minutes in blank
dismay before they finally recovered
tho r senses. Then, seizing the ropes
again aud cursing the unlnoky mistake,
they dragged and tugged at it in such
frantic haste that when the flag came
down it was torn and tattered in many a
fold. Gladly would the dismayed Gront
ites have concealed the ill-omened cir?
cumstances, but there wero too many
spectators of the occurrence for that.
All regarded it as an augury that' the
ship which bore the fortunes of Grant
and his orew had at last run npon the
breakers, and that the flag of distress
was an evidence of their sinking canso.

This is the first use of the Eu Klux
Act for the benefit of white or blaok De?

enough, here it is used for the protection

If this precedent is followed up in the
Sonthern States, a third of the block
Union Leaguers will be in jail before the
November elections-because these black
Union Leaguers are, everywhere in the
South, instruments of tyranny, oppres?
sion and affright upon their own race. If
' the blacks of the South were free from
this oppressive fright, they would vote
as white Americans vote, not in masses,
but in divisions, in squads, upon princi?
ple, or, it may be, upon interest; and
pity is, the blacks of the South are not

FLOW OF SPECIE SOUTH.-We are
credibly informed that 50,000 silver half
dollars have been sent from Washington
by the Republican Executive Committee
for use in North Carolina. The wards of
the nation are greatly tickled by tbe
jiugle of silver, and their eyes dwell
upon "rhino" with delight. Tt is plea?
sant, however, to note the enterprise
which promises to aid in strengthening
the people of the South for a resump?
tion of tipecio payments, even thongh it
comes from staunch supporters of the
theory that greenbaok is better thou
gold and silver currency. One word of
caution: Look out for bogus ooin, par?
ticularly if wrapped with paper bearing
Radical vignettes.-Augusta Chronicle.
AN EXPECTED DUEL.- Advioes from
North Carolina represent that the cam?
paign has become so bitter and personal
that a duel is likely to result from it be?
tween Merrimon, the Democratic candi?
date for Governor, and Senator Pool. A
challenge has already passed, and both
are known fighting men, each having
heretofore fought duels.
In accordance with a law whioh wont

District of Columbia who shaves white
trash to the exclusion of negroes, or any
restaurateur who serves beefsteak to the
one sooner than to the other, does so at
the peril of various penalties and for?
feiture of license.

We are told that the North and Sooth
Railroad, between Galera and Birming?
ham, will hare to be nearly rebuilt, so
much damage baa been done by the re?

WANTS TO RETUBN A STOLEN BIBLE.
A Federal soldier, one of a number who
plundered the residence of Mr. A. Ley
don, in Atlanta, during the war, writes
a letter to this geotteman, offering to re?
turn the old family Bible, taken by him
on that occasion, if Mr. Leyden would
send him tbe money necessary to pay
the express charges. That soldier,
doubtless, contemplates supporting Ho?
race Greeley for the Presidency, because
none of Grant's family are susceptible
of a "returning" sense of justice.

The following is a copy of the memorial and
reaolutiona ia honor of the late WILLIAM T.
WALTER, as passed by Bichland Lodge, No.
1 39, A. F. M., at their last regular communica?
"It is appointed unto ?ll men once to die."
In obedience to this inexorable btw, it has
pleased the Supreme Architect of the Uni?
verse to taks from our midst our beloved bro?
ther WILLIAM T. WALTER, and place him,
a -'perfect ashlar," in that temple not made
with banda eternal in the Heavens.
Having entered npon bis Masonic oareer at
mature years, be gave to it that devotion of a
mind and heart trained to deede of love and
charity, and became for ua a leader in the
learning and work of Masonry-exemplifying
all the charnoteristics of the order so beauti?
fully and perfectly as to win for his memory a
place in our hoaita far more endearing than
the image of him which yet remains to adorn
the inner chamber of our Lodge.
By bia moral attainments, his unyielding
integrity, and elevated devotion to our prin?
ciples, happily blended with those high quali?
ties of personal purity which dignified and
adorned hts character, he has erected in the
hearts of hts brothers a monument which will
long be cherished as one of our greatest trea?
When such a Brother Macon dies, tho com?
mon-place phrases which mark the accus?
tomed page in oar record book aro feeble and
inexpressive. They are, nevertheless, due,
and o,ro awarded, to bira aa to the humblest
member ot the cralt-t-but with tho nrofouud
conviction that words, of themselves, are in?
adequate to express the noble virtues and the
unblemished charaoter of our Worshipful
Brother, . . ... #
But while we If reave the loss of such an
exeinplui', while we mourn,the loss of one who
vras n brother, a friend and a benefactor, and
express our profound sorrow o'er his ashes,
there,is another, a narrower and a holier
circle, within whioh this afflictive stroke will
fall with peculiar heaviness; Where those
gontlo and endearing traits of private virtue,
which ao eminently adorned nia character,
shone with unusual lustre.
We would not intrude too soon npon tho
sanctity of domestic grief to mingle our tears
with their?, yet we cannot fail to remember
that their griefs, though mora poignant than
ours, is yet oommon to ns all. Like them,
we, too, will cherish his memory with all that
warm affection whioh bis lite inspired.
While we in humble submission bow to the
Divine will, and murmur not at the wise de?
crees of Providence, it is fitting that we, bis
fellow-laborers on the unfinished temple of
life, should show our just appreciation of the
many exemplary virtnea that adorned the
treusel-board of his transitory career as a
His man; eminent qualities give us the as?
surance that he has at length reached the
topmost round of that ladder which leads
him to eternal life.
It ia, on motion,
Resolved, 1. That a page of our record book
be set apart to tho memory of our deceased
brother, William T. Walter, with auch fitting
words of tribute as the Worshipful Master
2. That a copy of these r?solutions, toge?
ther with the memorial, be engrossed upon
parchment, and printed, with the moat ear?
nest sympatbv and condolence of the lodge,
to his widow. "
3. That the jewels of the lodge and tho por?
trait of oar deceased brother be draped fa
mourning, and that the brothers wear the
uanal badge for thirty days.
4. That a copy of these resolutions be pub?
lished ia the daily papera of this city.
