Tho Lawyers After Parker-Som- of hi?
Frandi ?nd Felonies.
What ia popularly known as the Gib?
son oase was ended on Tuesday last, so
far aa the preliminary trial before Judge
Willard goes-and this is a great way.
The plaintiffs, who were represented hy
Messrs. Pope & Haskell, have sustained
their CUBO in every particular, and made
a terrible exhibit of Parker's unlawful
expenditures pf the public moneys for
tho lost four years. Messrs. Pope &
Haskel], though acting only in tho capa?
city of attorneys for private parties,
have been of immense service to the peo?
ple of the entire State in disemboweling
saab of Parker's rascalities as came with?
in the purview of their case, and we
hope and believe have opened the way
for a successful criminal prosecution of
some of tho official robbers who have
been plundering tho State.
Here are some of the facts and QgureB
Which are unquestionable. The only
thing ia, that, they do not show by
milli on a all the money of the people
whioh has been, stolen, misappropriated
and misapplied in aid of the many
speculative sohemes, by whioh the cor?
rupt ring have enriched themselves.
They do not show all, we say, because
from the amount of taxable property in
the State, according to assessment, as
shown in the Comptroller's report of
1670, say, is round numbers, $184,000,
800, the amounts received from taxes
?hould have been far larger than th ot. 2
acknowledged to have been reoeived by
the Treasurer. But they are enough,
Heaven knows; aa they stand on Par?
ker's showing, to send him and all hit
embezzling associates, many times over,
to the penitentiary for the reat of theil
days, and to greater torments still ic
another world, when their days on earth
ah all have ended.
First; wo will take the amounts al?
leged to have been paid out this year foi
the legislative expenses of the last
session, and for a deficit in the pay men I
of those of the previous session. Thc
whole appropriation, outrageous thong!
it be, when compared to the SiO,00(
which was considered ample when th?
government was in honest hands
amounts only for the last session tc
$350,000. The appropriation to mee
the deficit ia the payment of last your'
appropriations, $280,000. Total amoun
appropriated for legislative expenses
Now, let us see what Treasurer Parke
olaims to have paid ont on this account
His exhibit Bums np as follows:
Paid io cash from Treasury .$586,111 0
Paid borrowed on notes. 399,312 7
Besides this, he paid on account 0
publio punting, for whioh no approprie
tion was made, $113,374.60. This makes
in all, paid ont for legislative expenses
$1,048,798 00. Parker bas thus paid, e
claims to have paid, over and above th
lawful appropriations, $448,798. It i
thus neon that Parker squandered almoi
the entire tax of thia year npon.legisli
tive expenses alone, for about one-ba
of whioh ?hero was not even an appr<
pria tion made.
We oome now to bigger things st il
and we invite the attention of our Nor tl
ern readers and exchanges especially <
it, for it gives the most damning proi
of the infamous State Government whit
Grant's tyranny and Grant's bayone
have foisted npon this devoted Stat
It has been the ory of Gov. Scott-it hi
been the ory of our Ku Klnx mart;
across the way-it has been the ory
every Radical in the State who has a
tempted to explain away or exouoe tl
enormous, bonded debt whioh has be<
heaped upon the State by the jarpet-bi
crow whioh Gran tism has oast among 0
and whioh Grant himself has encourage
smiled upon, sympathized with, ai
protected with tha army of ..the Unit?
States-that onr people have not pa
their taxes, and that, on account of tl
heavy appropriations mode by the I
gislatnre, the receipts of revenue we
inadequate to meet the legitimate expe
ditnres, and that, therefore, money h
to be borrowed on bonds necessarily
order to carry on the Governmant.
- Far be it from ns to defend or apo!
gize for the Legislature. A more c
bauohed set of thieving rascals net
met than were the large majority of t
members of Grant's General Asseml
in South Carolina. Their appropriate
have been enormous, ranging from i
to three times aa much as was ever befe
required to support the State Govei
ment. But-did they appropriate all t
money whioh has been stoleu or squi
dered? and waB it necessary, in order
meet their appropriations, that money
should be raised by issuing millions of
bonds? Let os ooo.
The figures were compiled by Messrs.
Pope & Haskell, after careful scrutiny
and examination into the Appropriation
Aots and all other necessary reoords, and
were undenied and unquestioned. The
entire appropriations made at tho session
of 18?S-OU amount to $1,138,800. The
amount acknowledged as received from
taxes amount to $1,291,482.02. This is
about $400,000 less than the amount
which should have been reoeived, and
whiob, we doubt not, was crushed out of
our impoverished people, whether it ever
got so far os the State Treasury or not.
But, as it stands, we see that there is
over $150,000 above the appropriations.
Bat mark this: In that very year, there
was borrowed through Kimpton $819,
714.50, and consequently upwards of
$990,000 squandered above the appro?
In the years 1869 and 1870 there was
appropriated $1,152,329.00. Taxes ac?
knowledged to have been received into
Treasury $860,974.19. There is a de?
ficit hero of $291,355. There was bor?
rowed through Kimpton that yeat
$971,039.21-making receipts in all
$1,832,013.40. The excess paid ont over
appropriations amount to $745,008.86.
For the year 1870 and 1871 the appro
priations were $1,296,564.14. Amount
reoeived from taxes $1,306,625.56. There
was borrowed through Kimpton th.it
year $571,558.48-making the amount
unlawfully paid out upwards of $550,000.
The whole amonnt unlawfully paid oui
for the three years aggregates the gigant?
ic sum of $2,298,394.77. This year, up
to the 15th of Jane, all the money re
oeived has been paid out very nearly OE
account of legislative expenses alone,
and comparatively nothing bas been paid
toward the heavy appropriations, whicL
sam up $1,470,100. Will the tax payen
not move? The prosecutions should com
menee at once. We will have something
more to say on this snbjeot^o-morrow.
WATTINO FOB DEVEiiOrai??TS.-It ii
strange indeed that any one with anj
perception at all, who pretends to be oe
the people's side in the pending struggle
should lag back, or fail to come boldly
and squarely up to the scratch, and shov,
by unmistakable action that be is really
for the people and with the people. Th?
issue ia now made up, tho fight fairh
opened. It is no common one, either
no mere party fight, but a struggle o
the better and more honest people, wbi
favor the great cardinal principles o
justice and equality upon which our Go
vernment is based, against the more de
prayed and abandoned ones, who favo
and uphold nepotism, centralism, pro
Boription, porruption and lawlessness
The standard-bearers representing tues
contestante are in the field, and for. an;
man or journal pretending to favor th
people's cause to lag back now, to u wai
developments, ia very struuge, is ridicu
lons and shamefully inconsistent. On
would suppose that the lust four years c
rule by the party in power, with its op
pression, lawlessness and corruption, an
with its mountain of debt, bringing n
benefit to the country, were sufficient t
convince all men that they should not h
trusted longer with the reins of Goven
ment, and ought' to chrystallizo all oj
posed to them into a solid body, whicl
burled against the enemy, would eon
pletely and forever dethrone bim.
CURIOUS OMISSIONS.-The Miesoui
Democrat calls attention to the omissic
in the report of the correspondence b
tween Schurz and Greeley of the folio \
ing passage from the letter of the form?
to the latter:
"As you are undoubtedly aware, yoi
opponents in the press charge that ye
are in contact with, and under the infii
ence of, politicians of doubtful chara
ter; that if you are elected Presiden
such men would be likely to be appoin
ed to influential offices; and that, ther
fore, the canse of reform bas nothing
hopo from you."
And also the following from Greeli
"I pass over the allusion to my polil
cal associates, barely remarking that <
imputation so vague can never ba sp
oifioally repelled. Charity is a virt
rarely exemplified in politics; and mo
men live and die in the undoubting oo
viotion that their political opponents a

that my age and your experience ba

CAMPAIGN NOTES.-Gen. Longstreet
sa;a there is no doubt that the State of
Louisiana will go against Grant and for
Greeley. i \
With cannons, sky-rockets, advertise?

meeting. , <.
The Philadelphia Bulletin says-Italics
and all-that "President Grant has ac?
cepted no gifts since he assumed his high
office." We don't think that the Presi?
dent's rejection of the Cleveland pup
fully justifies ino Bulletin in makiDg such
a statement as that.
The Detroit Post declares that Grant
bought and paid for his Long Branch
finttiige. So he did, but ?. T. Stewart
says that Tom Murphy and a number of
others gave him the money with which
to buy and pay for it.
The supporters of Gnu. Grant claim a
great deal of credit for bis administra?
tion, on account of the very inconsidera?
ble rcdnotion of tho national debt. The
onerous tuxes imposed on the people
would have caused the national debt to
be greatly more reduced, had it not been
for tho extravagance, mismanagement
and fraud in tho conduct of national
'.Lot us have peaoe," said Grant in
18G8, accepting the Republican nomina?
tion for President. It eleoted him.
"There most be no shaking hands across
the bloody chasm," says Grant in 1872,
speaking through Mr. limit well, "until
the chasm is closed np." This will de?
feat him. The people want peace-they
wanted it four years ago-they want it
now-and they mean to have it.
Every one of the four delegates fr om

FBIEND SELBY: ID your article of the
23d Joly, under the caption of "Parker
and tho Bond-holders," I think you have
made a'alight mistake iu ono particular.
The reader ia informed that those
"velvet oushioued divans, the cut glass
ink-stonda and pon-bolderB, China spit?
toons, $5,C00 clocks," &c., have been
purchased "with that filthy lucre."
Now, although that "great benefactor,"
General Dennis, did make the aforesaid
purchase, and, I believe, in good faith,
with full intent to pay, tho unfortunate
merchants in New York, who trusted to
his representations and faith of tho
State, have never received the first
farthing for their property, which was
sold at a fair price, and if their bills
were increased in amount while in the
bauds of nuy of tho ring, it surely was
no fault of theirs.
They aro uow left to regret that Gov.
Scott was refused the lion's share of th?
"steal," iu consequence of which, and
other frauds, tho whole appropriation
bill was vetoed by him, which mndo a
good thing for the owners of a "mill,"
called the South Carolina Banking and
Trust Company. In brief, those mer
chuuts have benn swindled, und lied to
for about two years. Their chances for
pay is about a9 remote us tho holders of
the Kimpton-Wiliurd fraudulent bonds
are for interest or principal. There is
not the ghost of a chance for either,
until the rascals aro brought into court,
aud made to answer, disgorge, flee the
country, or go to prison. There would
bo less difficulty iu convicting the plun?
derers who hare dono thu work here
than there was in settling the unconsti?
tutionality of thu Blue Ridge scrip iu
Columbia. Yours, truly, STEAM.

A TOUCHING OBITUARY.-It is, we
hope, with the emotions proper to so
solemn a duty, that we annouuee to our
readers the sudden demise of tho Bing?
hamton roorback. The alllictivo dispen?
sation-to borrow a phrase from our
reverend friends of the clergy-will carry
mourning into half the orgau offices in
tho land. The deceased was a root hack
of unusual promise; tho New York
Evening Post and Times, in particular,
had tho very highest hopes of it. They
assured us over and over again that it
would infallibly kill Mr, Greeley us dead
us a door-nail. He had buen convicted
of corresponding on the sly with Horatio
Seymour, through the bucolic Carmi?
chael, about thu Democratic nomination
for tho Presidency. He had committed
himself iu black aud white for payiug
pensions to the rebel soldiers. Young
Mr. Carpenter had made his affidavit to
it, and he haw the letters. Of course, no
candidate could survive such au expo?
sure as this. Thus the Times and Even?
ing Post, passim. About this time, they
ure probably pondering with added ap?
preciation a familiar stanza of Dr. Gold?
smith, tho first two'lines of which it
wtuuld bu rude to qnb'e, but which doses
by announcing that
"Tho mau reoovered from tho bito,
Tliodug it was that died."
Mr. Greeley still lives; the roorback,
aiua! is no more. The poor thing hud
been troubled with a huskiness ever since
Mr. Carmichael told the Herald reporter
-.several responsible gentlemen who bad
read the correspondence corroborating
his statement-that Mr. Greeley's letters
didn't contain a syllable about the pen?
sioning of rebel soldiers, but merely ex?
pressed the opinion that the Democrats
ought to have nominated Chase in 'CS,
aud informed Mr. Greeloy's correspond?
ent that Mr. Greeley-the sly old fox
that he is!-couldn't, as yet, "see his
way clear" to the end of 1872. But tho
immediate cause of death was a card
from the same young Mr. Carpenter, who
swore to having seeu a letter iu Mr.
Greeley's baud writing advocating the
payment of pensions to disabled rebel
soldiers. This curd closed as follows:
Several gentlemen residing in Unadil
la, of unquestioned integrity, who have
seen all of Carmichael's letters from
Greeley, inform nie that no such letter
was written by Mr. Greeley ; therefore, I
conclude, I may bu mistuken, aud that
my impression of the purport of the let?
ters was obtained from Carmichael per?
sonally, in stating what he had written
to Mr. Greeley, or intended to writo. At
the time of Carmichael's visit to the
Herald office, I did not regard the matter
be was working up as possible, and gave
him but little attention. I make this
statement thinking I may be mistaken,
aud hope for a publie production of the
whole correspondence between Car?
michael and Greeley, until which time I
rettact the statement made in my affi?
"Hero's a rum start," as Sam. Weller
somewhere remarks. Truly this is a
walo, and truly the New York Times and
Evening Post aro the unluckiest and un?
happiest of all the pilgrims that sojourn
in it. At such a time, words of consola?
tion are a mockery. Let us unite in
silent weeping.-Springfield Republican.
SUDDEN DEATH.-We regret to learn
that Mrs. Mary Moonoy, wife of Mr. V.
A. Mooney, of this place, died vory sud?
denly on Monday last. She appeared to
bo in her usual health on that day, und
made a visit to one of her neighbors,
with the family of whom ?ho wus con?
versing, when she was seized with a con?
vulsion, and expired iu two or three
hours after, remaining perfectly uncon?
scious from the first moment of the at?
tack. Mrs. Mooney was held iu very
high esteem by thoso who knew her, and
her unexpected death has sent a pang of
grief into tho hearts of many of our peo?
ple.- Greenville Mountaineer.

THE VJ.OTJ.M8 OF NEGRO MALIGNITY.
We visited the residence of Mrs. Orson
Barber and Mrs. J. B. Cohen, yesterday
afternoon, to inquire after their condi?
tion. We fonnd Mrs. Ward sittiug up,
surrounded by friends, and were politely
invited to enter. The unfortunate lady
was wounded in four places. Both
hands and ber head were bandaged; she
also received a shot in the left breast,
inflicting a painful wound. TbeBe were
all small shot, and were picked out. Her
hands are very mach swollen und ex?
tremely sore, rendering their use impos?
sible fur the present. The wouad iu the
bead is slight. We were informed by
Mrs. Ward that she was standing iu the
doorway, und Mrs. Cohen, her husband
and sister were seated upon the bench
on tho portico, as wau also her little
daughter, aged about twelve yearn, when
the devilish miscreants fired upon them.
The shots were fired from the big onk
tiee on the North-west corner of Ander?
son und Bull streets, diagonally across
from her lionne, a distance of probubly
thirty yards. They were so shocked by
the unexpected shower of shot, thut they
wore unable to notice in what direction
the villains retreated. Mrs. Cohen and
ber husband and sister were struck ab Jut
the face and shoulders, but only slightly
Mrs. Ward and her little daughter
were the worse injured of tho party.
The latter was struck io the fnco and
right shoulder and arm. We were ehowu
into the room where the poor little child
lay, suffering with a high fever, pro
dueed by the wounds. She was utterly
unable to move her arm, on account of
its stillness and soreness. The shot,
fortunately, did not eater the flesh to
auy great exteut, nod were easily ex?
tracted. They ure all doing very well,
uod it is to be hoped may soon recover,
although the coaditioa of the little girl,
owing to the setting in of fever, is
serious. We examined the door and
front of the house, and found the place
riddled with shot. From one of the
door posts two large slugs had been cut,
which were buried to the depth of an
iuch or more. Mrs. Ward was leaning
against this post when the assassins
fired, und the bulls struck within a few
inches of her head. The escape from
instant death was remarkable. Notwith?
standing the pain and distress caused by
this foul deed, Mrs. Ward seemed cheer?
ful, and is ia hopes thut the perpetra?
tors will be apprehended and made to
sutler, ia which hope it ia scarcely
necessary tu say the entiro respectable
portion of the community join.
SINGULAR RELIGIOUS CEREMONIAL.
At Echternach, in Luxem berg, every
Whit Tuesday a singular religions cere?
monial talion place, consisting of a pro?
cession of some thousands of invalids
and their friends, who make a pilgrim?
age to the abrine of St. Wihibrod, iu the
hupe of obtaining relief from their afflic?
tions. This year, the procession num?
bered about 9,000, mostly invalids. The
others joined iu the ceremonies in behalf
of relatives too ill to make the pilgrim?
age themselves. About twenty villages
were represented, and tho procession en?
tered the town about 9 o'clock in the
ii ire noon. First came the priests, head?
ed by banners, with several handred
mea ia blouses, chaating. Than fol?
lowed the great body of the pilgrims,
four or five abreast, either holdiag
bauds or holding on to handkerchiefs,
sticks and umbrellas, to preserve their
liues. But the most carious feature of
this ceremony consisted in the peouliar
manuer iu which the multitude ad?
vanced. Instead of marching ia the
ordinary way, they moved with a kind
of polka Btep, fo^ir forward and three
back. This was sometimes modified by
tho necessity of graining gronnd or
murkiug time. lu effecting the lust
named movement, they danced slowly,
occasionally turning themselves round,
when the olTect was something like that
of a Scotch reel. The procession was
interspersed with bands of the most
motley description, but all played the
same air of fuur bars, incessantly re?
peated. The whole woe brought up by
a dense crowd, half cbantiag, half re?
peating a short prayer in German. The
pilgrims proceeded through the town to
the church, where they ascended a steep
flight of steps, and, entering the build?
ing, passed round the shrine of the saint
and into the street agaia, keeping np the
duueing step all the while. This pro
oossiou haB taken place every year, ex?
