Tiie Armed Force Fraud-The Vull Ex?
We publish this morning in another
column tho itemized account of expend?
itures made by tho State Treasurer, un?
der pretended authority of tho "armed
force" resolution. This is a joint reso?
lution passed ia February, 1869, au?
thorizing and empowering the Governor
to raise an armed force to the urrmber
of ono hundred, if so maDy be needed,
and to mount them, if it be deemed ad?
visable by him. Tho Treasurer was in?
structed to pay whatever expenses might
be incurred-the amount of which was
attempted to bo left entirely to the dis?
cretion of lt. K. Scott. In other words,
the General Assembly seemingly endea?
vored to transfer their legislative powers
to the Executive. He was virtually to
mako tbe appropriation of the public
funds. There was no legal limit put
upon his powers in this respect, and he
might havo ordered millions of dollars
to be so paid out, if ho saw proper to do
.il. Precisely what amount has been
squandered under color of this bogus
armed force wc do not yet know. Tbe
account we publish is from the com?
mencement of tba present fiscal year,
.November 1, 1871, to tho 1st of March,
. period of only four months. The joint
resolution has boen in operation for
three and a half years. It is probable,
.however, that there were never before
?snob, enormously heavy expenditures un?
der it. Judge Orr has chargod-and so,
also, have other Republicans-that R.
K. Scott -bribed the General Assembly,
in order toiprevent his impeachment last
? winter, when it was so seriously threat
. ened by Bowen, Whipper and others,
s and . for thia purpose actually used the
\ public funds of the State, and gave Par?
iser "vouchers for the same in fraudulent
drafts under this inexhaustible armod
force appropriation. From the names
which appear upon thia list in whose
favor the orders were drawn, tho conclu?
sion seems irresistible.
To R. B. Elliott, who was Ssott's at?
torney ia the matter of impeachment,
and who loft his seat in Congress to at?
tend to this business for Scott, was paid
tbe enormous sum of $10,500. F. J.
.Moses, Jr., Speaker of tho House, and
.who now has the audacity to oiler him?
self as a candidate for Governor, re?
ceived $10,000. Other members of the
General Assembly, it will be seen, re?
ceived smaller sums. Whether or not
tim money paid them was a bribe in the
impeachment matter, is not so clear, but
the presumption points that way. They
^must, at any rato, explain tho matter, if
'they would uleur their record. The peo?
ple should murk every one of them and
bring them to an account. The largest
amount paid was to J. Mooney, to whose
account .is credited $25.545. Who J.
Mooney ia, we are unable to ascertain.
No one seems to know or ever to have
heard of him. It is generally believed
that be is an entirely imaginary charac?
ter. He is not in esse, except for pur?
poses of impeachment, la short, J.
Mooney is a fictitious name, employed
in the drawing of the orders opon tho
Treasury, in order to prevent its being
immediately nppuruut who drew and
.used the money.
J. Leggett, to whom 810,600 was no?
minally paid, is no equally mythical
character, as is also D. H. Wilson, to
whom $12,500 is accredited. They are
what his Excellency would, doubtless,
with propriety, term his secret servict
yoree, If this armed force swindle doce
.not furnish unquestionable evidence ol
jfraud, bribery and corruption, wo should
like to know what wonld.
Robert Kingston Scott, the penitentiary
is gaping for you and your guilty asso?
ciates. You will have, too, to disgorge
your ill-gotten gainB, for yoa and youl
Financial Board will have to restoro tc
the bankers in New York the money you
have received on fraudulent bondi
palmed off upon them. To you they
must look, for the people ot South Caro*
lina will not pay another dollar, even ol
interest, upon them. We dare you tc
order the levy you threaten.
IFATAC, ACCIDENT.-A fatal accidcul

POLITICAL JOTTINGS.-Every Demo?
cratic paper iu Mississippi has uow run
up the Greeley flag, the Columbus Dem?
ocrat being the last to unfurl it.
In an able letter addressed to William
H. Welsh, Esq., editor of the Baltimore
Gazette, Judge Black reviews the situa?
tion. He concludes that, while Mr.
Greeley with all bis reforms offers no im?
mediate atonement for tho wrongs of the
past and only partial remedy, yet Demo?
crats will support him with almost per?
fect unanimity, impelled by a profound
conviction that his eleotion alone will
save tho country from a long period of
mis-government and, perhaps, the total
destruction of our institutions.
Gen. Dix says Greeley is "unstable us
water." If any mau says that General
Dix bas u constitutional hatred for
water, shoot him on the spot.
Some enterprising littlo boys of In?
dianapolis hftving organized a Greeley
club, the Grant paper there is mean
enough to call them Demobrats.
A North Carolina man, who had heard
that Caldwell was elected, got mad at a
ballot-box and tbreatered to kick the
stuffing out of it.
i It turns ont that Caldwell's nominal
election as Governor of North Carolina,
was due to the grossest frauds. Not
content with supplying money ad libitum
to its carpet bag agents, the Administra?
tion colonized tens of thousands from
adjacent States to help along the Radi?
cal ticket. We do not wonder that Mer
rimou's friends insist ou his bringing
the matter before the Legislature for in?
A letter to tho Boston Post, spoaking
of Senator Sprague, of Rhode Island,
says: "He will publish a letter in a few
days defining his position, and thus
throwing the weight of bis immense in?
fluence in Rhode Islond for Greeley and
Browu, and, beyond a doubt, Recuring
this State to the Liberals."
England wants Grant re-elected, be?
cause there never waB a time when Eng?
land did not want to see this country
Tho ouo Southern mau whoso con?
versation should bring comfort to the
President is James L Orr, of South Ca?
rolina, who says that "he is surfeited
with offioe, and will never more submit
to the infliction of holding one." He
also declares that "he bas outlived am?
bition;" and of course he bas, for other?
wise he would hardly be supporting Dr.
Grant. Even in the remote contingen?
cy of the Doctor's ro-oloction, tho people
now in office will expect, and properly
expect, to bo kept in as the reward of
their good and faithful service. Few
will die, and none resign; and, in addi?
tion to this, several members of tho
Grunt family will come of age this year,
and euch, upon becoming eligible, would
receive something Ruug. So Orr is
right in supporting Grant from motives
of simple affeotiou.-New York Tribune.
There is sad nows from Missouri. The
leader of tho gaug who took out and
whipped Mr. T. La urson is an uncompro?
mising Grant man.
Daddy Cain In the Up-L'uuniry.
PENDLETON, August 10, 1872.
Daddy Cain was hore last Thursday,
and made a moBt excellent speech. He
began by telling bis colored brethren
that he was going to vote for Grant; not
that Mr. Greeley was not a good, honest
man, for that ho (Cain) considered bim
one of the bopt in the United Statos,
but that Grant was a man of determina?
tion, while Mr. Greeley was all theory.
After several questions from Captain 8.,
and considerable dodging, bo confessed
that Greeley had worked the longest for
tho colored people, us four years to
forty. He forgot to tell them, though,
that it was Mr. Greeley's forty years'
theory that caused Grant's four years of
practice. Ho then waded into the ufFeo
tious of Messrs. Scott, Parker und Cham?
berlain-especially Parker-and im?
pressed on his subie hearers, after seve?
ral attempts, that he considered the
aforesaid gentlemen either incompetent
or dishonest; he did not think them Ihe
former. Therefore, his bearers could
make up their minds ut to what he did
consider them. After several repeti?
tions, Sambo saw the joke, und was
tiokled exceedingly. He touched up
the Blue Bulge Railroad swiudle, de?
preciation of bonds, enormous increase
of State debt, &c. ; all of which to his
brethren might au well have been Greek
or Hindost?n, for all they understood of
it. Still, he evidently made au impres?
sion on the aolorod part of bin hearers,
which was mote than the Rev. J. S. M.,
of Anderson, did, a few days ago, wheu
he dropped preaching, and tried poli?
On tho whole, his upeeoh was a very
good ono, for it attacked our dishonest
State Government, and that is the sore
that troubles us at this time more than
Greeley or Grant. Hurrah for Greeley
and honesty, nevertheless. Yours, tc,
The Republicans of Greenville ure
dissatisfied with the condition of things,
and at their last meeting adopted thc
following, among other resolutions:
That we profoundly regret thu discre?
dit and Bhame which has been brought
upon the Republican party, not only ol
this State, but of the United States, bj
the mal-administratiou of the Govern?
ment of this State by the mis-conduct ol
most of the exeoutive officers of tbii
State, by the notorious abuse of theil
official trusts, and shameless corruptior
of many of the executive officers, ant
members and officers of the General As
sembly, who, in their capacity of publii
servants, have wrongfully enriched them
selves at the expense of those from whou
they derive their power. Among otbei
shameful abuses practiced by theso of
ficers, it appears by the sworn statemen
of Treasurer Parker, that the sum o
$111,860 65 has already been paid out o
the Treasury of the State for the ex
penses of tho lust Fcasion of the Gencru
Assembly. At least three-fourths of thi
amount was wholly unnecessary, and i
believed to be illegal. lu addition ti
this sum, there is known to bu in th
bands of the various County Treasurer
of this State pay certificates to an im
meuse amount, purportiug to have beei
issued io members and employees of th
General Assembly. For this crimina
extravagance and patent fraud, Frankli
J. Moses, Jr., Speaker of the House c
Representatives, is largely responsibh
Notwithstanding these facts are well sui
stantiated, this convention lenroy wit
paiu and regret that the said Frankli
J. Moses, Jr., has annouuced?himself e
a candidato for Governor, and bas r<
eeived the endorsement of a few bodic
of Republicans, who have declared tbs
bis course is acceptable to them.
That the drawing of money from tb
Treasury under the pretence of th
armed foroe bill, for the purpose of di
feating their impeachment, by Governc
Scott and Treasurer Parker, ia a betrayi
of the confidence of the party, and
conclusive of their utter unwortbinei
of the positions which they hold.'
At a meeting of the Republican par!
in Columbia, on Saturday last, rosoli
tions were introduced and adopted ii
struoting tho delegation not to supp'o
Governor R. K. Scott aud State Tre

re election, nor Gen. Franklin J. Mose
Jr., as candidato for Governor.
WHAT WE HAVE WON.-We have wc
a sound Legislature which will mal
laws for the people, and not waste tl
substance of the people in vain babb
and riotous liviug-a Legislature th
will not increase tho burdens of our ii
poverished people as the swindling L
gislature of 1868 did.
We have won a representativo in Co
gress by such men as Waddell, Ash
Leach, Robbins and R. B. Vance.
We have won a great moral viotory
victory that causes Federal office-helde
to tremble in their boots-a viotory tb
breaks the power of Radicalism forev
in North Carolina.
Now tell us what sort of a victory tl
Radical party won? What are they i
joieing for? Wbat aro they crowii
over? Do they think, because tho offioi
vote may declare the State to have go
for Caldwell and the rest of their tickc
that Conservatives give it up as a Rad

GOVERNOR BROWN S ACCEPTANCE OF
THE BALTIMORE NOM'NATION.-The cor?
respondence between J. B. Doolittle
and B. Gratz Brown, respecting tbe
nomination of tbe latter for vice-Presi?
dent b.y the B tl timor? Convention, is
published. The letter of Mr. Brown is
JEFFERSON CITY, MO., Aug. 8, 1872.
GENTLEMEN OF TUE COMM ITT KI;: I buve
tho bouor to acknowledge tho receipt of
your communication, advising me that I
had been uuuuimously nominated as u
candidate for the Vice-l'resideucy of the
United States at baltimore. For this
mark of confidence on the part of so
large a representative body of iny follow
citizens, I cannot too deeply express ray
gratitude. The distinction is ouo which
I feel to bu ia u great measure unde?
served, where so many mure suitable
could have beeu found; aud yet, should
your action be confirmed, I shall en?
deavor to discbarge the duties of thal
high place with fidelity to your trust,
with devotion to the public iuterest, and
with tho inflexible resolution to prove
not unworthy uf such choice.
The fuct that it repose? also upon the
declaration uf principles affirmed by the
Liberal Republicans at Cincinnati, and
was proclaimed without amendment, by
tho Democratic party ut Baltimore, gives
assurance that in this combined expres?
sion there is sought only tho deliverance
of the nation from a preBent grout peril
to its peace and liberties. To that end
all minor considerations hare been sub?
ordinated, and an illustration presented
to the country of unselfish patriotism
rather than any stickling for party ad?
vantage, which should cuuvince all of the
perfect sincerity of thia movement.
It has involved no surrender on either
part of any former convictions. It has
uot beeu negotiated or bargained. Its
origin was from tbe people. Though
differing in the past iu some issues of
great magnitude, yet, now that they are
settled, there is hearty concurrence be?
tween us upon all vital questions agitat?
ing the public mind. What conduct of
national allai rs that involves, your Con?
vention has well set forth iu its platform,
und its true accord witb the Democratic
ideas that guided an earlier Administra?
tion is the best guaranty that it will re?
store equal rights, tranquillity, develop?
ment and constitutional rule.
Permit me ulso, gentlemen, through
you, to express my thanks to the great
musses of your party, which has since
ratified this action with such sigual una?
nimity, and to say to them thut, iu ac?
cepting this, their nomination, I do so,
believing there is nothing in honor or
conscience, that should prevent the most
cordial co-operation henceforth in behalf
of politics preserved.
Io concluding, it is proper to stale
that severe illness han intervened since
the reception of your communication,
which bas delayed this reply until my re?
covery and return home. With very
great respect, yours truly,
' B. GRATZ BROWN.
ANOTHER SANTO DOMINGO Jon.-If our
information is correct, the committee
now sitting at Brownsville is engaged in
a far more importent work than it would
seem to be on tbe surface, aud this will
appear iu due time. It is, in fact, the
first step towards the annexation of the
Rio Grande country to the United States.
We have reason to koow tbat it is the
desire of President Grant that the fact
of the utter inability of the Mexican Go?
vernment to maintain order in that por?
tion of its territory contiguous to our
own should be established by official
proofs of the most incontestible charac?
ter, in order that the "new departure"
he is contemplating may be presented at
home and abroad in the light of a necessi?
ty which circumstances have absolutely
forced upon ns us n matter of self-de?
fence. The report of this commission
will bo among the dnouments accompa?
nying the President's message, and the
message itself will invite the immediate
attention of Congress to it, with a view
of placing our relations with the sister
republic on an entirely new basis, and
putting an end to the anomalous condi?
tion of things existing ou the border and
constantly threatening tho peaceful re?
lations between tho two countries. It is
part of the programme to sound the
Mexican Government upon the proposi?
tion for a joint military occupation of
tho Stales of Tam a uli pas and Nuevo
Leon, with a view to mutual protection
of the lives and property of tho citizens
of both countries. But, in the nature of
things, a military occupation of this
kind cannot be of long duration. Our
people will soon tire of maintaining
troops in a neighbor's territory, in order
to prevent that neighbor from robbing
and killing peaceable settlers ou our
side of the line, aud this feeling in due
time will i nduoo tho Administration to
open negotiations for a treaty, transfer?
ring tho.whole territory in a lump to tho
United States in consideration of a nomi?
nal indemnity of a few millions of dollars.

"PUT UP OR SHUT UP."-Por the past

mon who have made hundreds of thou?
sands and even millions out of tho Ad?
ministration, not ono of thom will risk
a dollar of thoir ill-gotten gains upon tho
candidate whom they say is "nure to bo
re-elected," "a perfect walk over,"
"Greeley no chance in tho world." Now,

TEN BECAUSKS.-A hundred reasons might
bo given why Lyon's Katbairon should bo
used by every intelligent human being in
pre ti renee to every other preparation tor tho
hair, but ten will suffice. Here they are:
Becaueo it nourisher tho fibres, multiplies
them and makes them grow; because it thus
prevent!* them from withering and bleaching;
because it removes the scurf and dandruff
whicb choke them ns t aren choke the golden
grain; beuaueo it keeps the acalp cool and
prevente eruptions; because it renders the
hair aa lustrous as satin; because it maltee it
pliant and elastic; becaneo it is a fragrant
and delightful dressing; because it does not
soil the pillow, the cup or tho hat; because it
is without a rival in cheapness, and because
no other article sold tor the same purpoae, in
this or any other country, possesses all, or
even one-half, of these invaluable properties.

THE ELECTION OF A POPE.-A question
of apparently immense future importance
in European politios is looming up. This

Pope, when tbe time shall come for the
