lb is impossible to state, with any de?
gree of oertaiuty, the preoise amount of
State bonds which have been issued by
the present corrupt Financial Board.
We know, though, that the public debt
of the State at the time when the pre?
sent regime went into power was about
$500,000. It ia generally stated at that,
though it was something considerably
less. It is now placed by the official
financial authorities of tho State at
about ?16.000.000. In November, 1870,
the Oomptroller-General, iu his report to
the General Assembly, declared the debt
to be a little over $7,500,000. Some?
thing over $8,000,000 of the debt, then,
was created within one year, from No?
vember 1, 1870, to November 1, 1871,
and the probability is, that almost the
entire amonnt of bonds were issued
within a very short period of time, just
before the sohemes of the Financial
Board were exploded in New York, by
the discovery that Scott and his ring
were having printed Borne twenty odd
millions of bonds.
This, upon the face of it, smells of
fraud. The State oould not possibly
have had need of saoh an enormous
amount of money, say in round num?
bera 88,000,000, in three months time.
Before the war that much money would
have supported the State Government
for sixteen years, and kept al ft he public
institutions in a healthful and flourishing
condition. The Soott ring have issaed
in all, and attempted to bind the State
to their payment, some $11,000,000 of
bonds, according to their own showing.
Of these $700,000 were issued for the
purpose of buying lands under the Land
Commission Act, $200,000 or $300,000
were probably Issued legitimately to re?
deem the bills of the Bank of the State,
and perhaps the 8500,000 ia bonds issued
to redeem the bills receivable may-or a
patt of them, for wa have no idea there
were so many bills receivable outstand?
ing-be considered as legal and valid ob?
ligations. Bat, all told, we do not be?
lieve that a oent over $2,000,000 of the
bonds, if that mach, can be sustained as
legal obligations against the State.
There are, therefore, in onr judgment,
at least $9,000,000 of fraudaient bonds
oat on the market, and a tax will be
levied in the fall to pay the interest,
which will amonnt to $560,000. This is
abundantly sufficient to pay all the legi?
timate expenses of the State Govern?
ment, with the exception of the free
schools, for an entire year. Will oar
people quietly submit to be thus robbed
again and again?
Under the present Constitution, there
cm be no authority for the issue of
bonds, except for the purpose of raising
funds for extraordinary expenditures
such OB the building of railroads, costly
pnblio improvements, &a. It is a well
known tact, that not a mile of railroad
has been oonBtruoted, nor any other pnb?
lio work of the kind.even attempted, in
the last four years.
All the money from these m?lions of
bonds, and tho greater part besides ol
the enormous amounts raised by taxa?
tion, have gone into the greedy pockets
of Soott, and his thievish crew, and there
is not a dollar of consideration for it to
the tax-payers and the people ,of the
State. These bonds are not only fraud?
ulent but unconstitutional, and we be?
lieve wonld be so pronounced by the
courts, if the question is properly made
before them. It needed bat to subj oct
the fraudulent bond scrip to the test of
judioial investigation to kill it ntterly,
and it is reasonable to expect that a like
effect would follow an aotion to test tho
validity of the bonds. $2,000,000 wero
saved to the tax-payers of the State in
the one eaie; $0,000,000 may be saved in
the other. Repudiation is a distasteful
. remedy, and though we should strongly
advocate it in the oase of the fraudaient
bonds, it is certainly far preferable to
have them declared invalid by theoonrts,
if possible. Now is the time for aotion.
It Won't Do.
Treasurer Parker graciously advises
the bond-holders to proceed against the
State Auditor, and compel him to levy
teses to pay the interest on their bonds.
This course, if successful, would, beyond
ail question, put the neoessary funds in
the Treasury; but what guarantee have
the bond-holders that it would not go
the way of all the other millions whioh
have been poured into the Treasury
since Mr. Parker's term? It looks ex?
ceedingly much like turkey for Parker
?nd buzzard for the bond-holders, which?
ever way you take it.
A Bing-do ve-A bride.
Necetaltas non Habet Legem.
Thia is un old maxim, bot it, too, mast
give way before the marob of progress.
It has stood a great while, an I through
ronny generations of-meo, unquestioned.
To our State Treasurer was left the
honor of completely overturning it. In
bis wonderful letter to the bond holders,
while diluting upon tbe sacredness of
the pnblio debt, he says that it was "in?
curred by necessity," and that there was
law for . it. I Necessity, therefore, bas a
law, at any rate for Mr. Parker. His
oode is that bad old law, that he must
steal who has a chanco, and bo must
keep who can.

TOLD You So.-The Golden Age flgureB
up the mingled certainties and probabi?
lities of the electoral vote, and gives
Greeley 194 and Grant 67, with 105
doabtful. Adding theso doubtful votes
to Grant's, his total rote would be only
172, against Greeley's 194. Among the
doubtful States are Pennsylvania. Loui?
siana, Ohio and Illinois, with 80 votes,
bat Grant loses daily and Greeley gains
daily. Pennsylvania will probably be
the keystone ia Mr. Greeley's arch of
triumph; and in Louisiana aud Ohio the
prospect is exceedingly bright. The
Golden Age takes particular pride in
parading its figures, becauso, a couple of
years ago, it was regarded as on the
verge of insanity for nominating Horace
Greeley to the Presidency of tho United
States. But now a majority of the whole
people aro as crazy, concerning Mr.
Greeley, as the Golden Age was in its
wildest moments of prophetic fanaticism.

Tlie Herald on Boutwell's Speech In
The Now York Herald, in an article
upon the oampain in North Carolina,
after speaking in favorable terms of the
speeoh of Senator Wilson, gives Boat
well a broadside, as follows:
Senator Wilson deserves special credit
for the courteous tone of his speeoh to?
ward the opposing candidates and parties,
as well as for the moderation with which
he appealed to the colored voters for
support. , In following the admirable ex?
ample set by August Belmont and Sena?
tor Doolittle, in the Baltimore Convon
tion, the Republican candidato for the
Vice-Presidency has administered a re?
buke to those orators and journalists ou
the legalar Bopublican side who have in?
jured the oause of their own friends by
the violence of their personal abuse of
Greeley and his supporters. The open?
ing speeoh of Secretary Boutwell, at
Greensboro, on Wednesday last, was
altogether nf a different character.
Apart from its review of the financial
policy of the Administration, it was, in
its political aspect, a dangerous and rep?
rehensible effort to array tho Southern
blacks against their white fullow-citizoue,
and to scatter the seeds of distrust,
hatred aud revenge broadcast over the
South. The Secretary of the Treasury
denounced and spurned the proposition
that the people of tho Northern and
Southern .States-tho men who hud
fought the battles of the Confederacy,
nnder the banners of Lee and Stonewall
Jackson, and the mou who had marched
to viotory under the lead of Sheridan
and Graut-shall now clasp hands across
the bloody chasm made by the war, aud
bnry forever tho bitter memories of the
past. No; rather let us keep alive the
animosities and hatreds that lcd to the
rebellion, until tho chasm shall ba filled,
it may be, with tho mangled victims of
a more cruel war-a war of races.
Slavery, says Secretary Boutwell, waa
the oause of this "deep, dark and por?
tentous chasm," and injustice is thu es?
sential characteristic of slavery. Ho re?
fuses to recognize the fact that slavery is
dead; that it can never again be revived
in the United States whilo tho world
continues; that the Southern people, one
and all, accept the results of the war;
that the white citizens of the South ask
only to be allowed to live in peace, to
repair their shattered fortunes, to recon?
struct their desolated homes, and to place
their States once again on the road tc
prosperity and happiness. Ha sees in
the solid vote of tho blocks, ignorant,
idle and vicious though u majority ol
them undoubtedly are, a prospect of se?
curing the Southern States for the Ad
ministration of which he is a member,
and so he tells the negroes of North Ca?
rolina that it must still bo war botweeE
them and their white fellow-citizens; anc
he pours into their credulous ears the
insidious poison of suspicion. If yoi
are wise, he says in substance to thc
black crowd ho harangues, you will nevei
trust your liberties und immunities t<
your old masters, for whenever they ob
tain the power, if they cannot destroy
the former, they will deny you tho latter
Their professions may bu fair, but theil
hearts are false; and if you would pro?
tect yourselves, your cry must be nc
peace with such oppressors. Clasi
hands aoross tho bloody chasm? No
rather fill it up with more blood and witt
the corpses of men, women and children
whose white skins point them out a:
your natural enemies. Wo do Secretary
Boutwell no injustice in this interpreta
tion of his unfortunate speech. It wil
bear no other. His address is an effor
to excite tho worst passions of an igno
rant and violent people; to array rac?
against race; to persuade thu neg roo
that the white Democrats of the Soutl
are their mortal enemies; to revive tbi
deadly animosities of slavery whet
slavery itself has perished; to opei
afresh the wounds made by the war whet
the country is at peace. If the language
used by the Seoretary is less brutal am
coarse than the ideas it conveys, th
talent displayed in his rhetoric only ren
ders the offence against humanity tin
more unpar Jouable.
ggTho reoord of the President prove
that he can have nothing but detesta
tion for the polioy advocated by hi
Secretary of the Treasury. When Gen
Grant drew his sword for his country
he declared that it should strike on th
side of the South, if ho could believi
that tho war was waged for the abolitioi
of slavery. When the brave soldiers o
Gen. Lee laid down their arms and la;
helplessly at the mercy of the Unioi
troops, Gen. Grant accorded them term
of peace fitting for men who had foagh
so gallantly, although in a bad cause
When the sneaking politicians who ba?
kept their skins whole during the wa
sought after its close to persecute Gen
Lee, Grant's voice was raised in indig
nant protest against the treacherous aol
and they were forced to abandon thei
design. When the Radicals in Congres
endeavored to find a pretence for hold
ing tho Southern States as conquere
territory, Gen. Grant united with Ac
drew Johnson in dedaring that tho citi
zens of theSouth accepted the result o
the war in good faith, and were anxiou
to return to self-government within th
Union as loyal men. "Let us hav
poaco" bas been the ory of Gen. Gran
ever nineo the war ceased, hud he ha
raised his voice against every attempt t
force negro supremacy npon the Soutl
BS an outrage and an insult to the whit
raoe. What, then, will he think and sa
of the incendiary speech of his Seoretar
of the Treasury, followed, as it has beet
by violence and attempted mnrder o
the part of the blacks of North Carolina
Let us hope that he will at onoe ordc
Seoretary Boutwell baok to Washingtoi
and leave the campaign to the more dil
oreet management of Senator Wilson. J
is his mly safety, for a few such speeohi
as that delivered on Wednesday last b
the wandering Secretary would destro
the Administration. The people are a
ready weary of Ku Klux laws and pr<
soriptive test oaths, and the sentiment <
the North demands a more' libera] and
just treatment of the white citizens of
the Southdean we expect any each
policy fronvfhbse who strive to stir up
strife between the races in the Southern
States, and who instill into tho mind of
the ignorant negro tbe idea that lm for?
mer master is his deadly and unyielding
enemy? We warn Gen. Grant and Secre?
tary Bootwell that such a policy is full of
danger and trouble in tho future, for it
cannot fail to bring forth bitter fruit for
any Administration. It must inevitably
lead to disturbances of the peace, if not
to more serious evils; and in the train of
these must oome more military usurpa?
tion, more coeruive legislation, more of
that coarse of oppression and injustice
towards the Southern States, whioh has
already been pursued too long, and
whioh, we insist, must and shall cease,
whatever Administration may bo in
power. The people of the North will
uo longer suffer this unconstitutional
treatment of Stntes within the Union, or
tolerate the Acts that lead to its continu?
ance. They know that the South would
be peaceful, if left to itself; they will not
allow its peace to be disturbed by the
selfish intrigues of narrow-minded poli?
ticians. They do not intend that the
fair Southern States shall bo the Ireland
of tho American republic

This is his Honor's laBt visit to York

We kuow very little of Judge Mackey's
antecedents, except what ho told the
people here, in a set speech, some weeks
since. Ho is of honorable(?) connexions,
fought for tho State in two wars, and

he is a gentleman of considerable acu?

Thomas, u Becket, when raised by King
Henry to the Archbishopric of Cauter
borry, deserted the royal standard, and
devoted his time and talents to the
church. Who kuowa but that Thos. J.
Mackey will do likewise?
It was stated by a Union correspond?
ent last spring that Judge Thomas was
au aspirant lor Congressional honors,
and that he intended presenting himself
to the people as an independent candi?
date. Mackey has superseded him in
one branch of public service, but he will
uot find it so easy to oust the honorable
Mr. A. S. Wallace from bis seat. "Tried
in the balance and found wanting," he
would naturally be preferred to one who,
by his conservative principles, might ef?
fect a great deal of good as a member
from thia district. ? good Republican
(Radical) before, the present incumbent
plighted his faith anew to the party dur?
ing tho Merrill-Corbin-Wallace inquisi?
tion of the Ku Klux in our County. He
made long and frequent visits in the
full and winter of last year to Col. Mer?
rill, our military autocrat, and exercised
his every faculty to wreak out the ven?
geance of an insulted, ostracised and
iujured(?) dignitary on the honest and
out spokeu people of the community.
Mr. Wallace does not roar; he cannot,
consequently, be styled a lion, although
in every othor respect be calls to mind
him who "goes about seeking whom he
may devour." Neither is he like the

Notwithstanding the great nnmber
that left the County last fall-some 200
or 300-we are glad to inform you that
the agricultural interest has not been ne?
glected. The seasons have been fine,
and the laborers have worked very faith?
fully. The planters have very little to
fear now, except that tho fall elections
may elicit the interest of the colored man
to such a degree as to make him grow
negligent about harvesting. The mer?
cantile interest suffered more immedifee
ly after the suspensi?n of the habeas cor?
pus Act than now; only two houses have
been permanently closed in town. We
are also pleased to state that the female
college and the King's Mountain Milita?
ry School are in a flourishing aondition.
The Rev. James Douglas, of the South
Carolina Synod, has an efficient oorps of
instructors, and under his auspices the
Yorkville Female College bas a bright
future. Col. A. Coward, the surviving
partner of Jenkins & Coward, is well
known throughout the State as a polished
gentleman, a brave soldier, and a tine
scholar and disciplinarian. While he
merely claims for his school that it is a
preparatory one, it fits a yoaug man for
the junior year in college, and one of
ordinary oapaoity and application, who
has completed the course, may take the
aniversity degree of A. B. in two years.
The faculty number four, and there aro
four separate departments-the scienti?
fic, English, Freuoh and claoBical. The
King's Mountain Military School is with?

ously decline doing a favor.

pany. Grossness is never humorous,
profanity is never admirable; and if your
manner and speech once begin to ravel
out upon that edge, all their manliness
and charm are in danger.

drinks five dollars, ham and eggs three
dollars, and other supplies aocordingly,
