thread-bare patches of old calumnioe,
with the royal purple hues of bis ever

clares that Mr. Greeley must bo defeated

for the reason that Jefferson Davis had
done things that placed him "outside

"When the men of Indiana and of
other States, who had been captured
upon the field of battle, were languish?
ing and dying in rebel prisons-in Cas?
tle Thunder, Belle Isle, in the oity of
Richmond, in view of the window of the
Jefferson Davis mansion, almost within
a stone's throw-dying from starvation,
perishing from disease, and nakedness,
and neglect; suffering tortores and inhu?
manities that have not been excelled;
that have not been equaled in oivil life;
Davis, with a fall knowledge of this,
having it in his power to remedy it,
turned from them with indifference, and
suffered the men of Indiana aud other
Stutes to die like rotteu sheep. And
they did die, and their bones lie buried

Now, without waiting for any one t<
riso and explain if this ie a sample o
the way the Administration orators pro
pose to clasp hands across the blood;
chasm, or if such speeches as this are i
fair interpretation of what they under
stand by letting us have peaoe, we di
propose to examine briefly the specif!
charges made in this infamous appeal t
burnt-out passions. The Senator luys i
down (1) that Greeley went out of hi
way to go bail for a "moral monster;
(2) that Jefferson Davis is a "mort
mousier," because he is responsible fe
tbe sufferings endured by our prisonei
in the South.
We are willing to accept the tnsjc
premises of this double proposition
that he in a "moral monster" who wi
responsible for this state of thing:
There were two persons responsible fe
thesis awful and prolonged suffering:
but neither of these two was Jefferso
Davis. One of them is a mau who

The other is Ulysses S. Grant, Preside!
of the United States, and aspirant for

Dr. Lieber's garbling hands. This
history, in spite of B. F. Butler's dear

and universally known for such, in spi
of doctored Confederate records, and
all the forays made upon the War D
partment arohives by Leet and Badoau
The exchange of prisoners ceased tl
hour that Grant became General-i
Chief. His avowed motive was that I
could better afford to fill his army wi
green recruits, and let his captured mi
lie rotting, than, by an exohunge, repl
nish the Confederate ranks with train
veterans. It was good policy, porhar
but it was policy that murdered our a
happy prisoners. The rebels offered a:

? FEARFUL STORY.-Old Hoger Mccor?
mack, an eccentric and notorious charac?
ter, has just been found dead on his
farm, near New Bruaswick, New Jersey,
ander extraordinary circumstances. Fif?
teen years ago he wus a prosperous ship?
ping merchant in Philadelphia, having
his country neat neur Now Brunswick,
where he went every week, und where
bis wife end daughter Alice, a beautiful
girl of seventeen, lived. During the
summer of 1860, Mrs. MoCormaok died
very snddeuly and mysteriously, and
soon after Alioe became engaged to a
yoong and wealthy merchant, of Phila?
delphia. For some inexplicable reason
he broke the engagement, uud snddeuly
went to South America. A few days
after, Alioe was found in hor chamber,
with her throat out from eur to ear. Tho
tragedy created the greatest sensation at
the time, and the house was visited by
handreds of people from tho surround?
ing districts. Many openly said that the
poor girl had been murdered, and pro?
posed to have a more rigid examination
as to the cause of her death, but the ex?
citement dually died away, nud the oc?
currence was forgotten. McCormuok
seemed bowed down with grief, but came
and went for a year or HO, und then
almost entirely abandoned his usual resi?
dence, whioh was declared to be haunt?
ed. Superstitious rustics declared they
had aeon, again and again, the ghost of
Alice, and had heard screams und awful
groans from the unoccupied residence.
About tho 1st of July, McOormack
and a masculine compuciou returned to
the houso with u supply of provisions.
A few weeks since McCormick's compa?
nion wont away, and McCormack him?
self was not seen again by uny of the
neighbors, who, wondering what hud
become of him, broke into tho house a
day or two ago, and discovered to tboir
horror, lying at full length upon a cot,
tbe body of Mr. Mccormack, partiully
decomposed, while portions of the arms
aud limbs were found frightfully muti?
lated by rats and other vermin. The
coroner held an inquest, und huviug
found that death hud resulted from na?
tural causes, the last of the McCormack
family was interred on tho farm. The
contents of a box were examined und
letters found, signed by Joseph Mallory,
Alice's lover, dated Aspinwull, October
15, 1861, addressed to Miss Alice McCor?
mack. He wrote that hu hud broken his
marriage engagement with her upon the
confession of her own parent, who,
through remorse, hud divulged that, in
case he (Mallory) married bis daughter,
he would wed a seduced girl, aud that
the cause of her misfortune was her own
father. Tbe letter expressed the utmost
tenderness for Alice, aud closed by bid?
ding ber farewell, us bo never expected
to see her or be a happy man again.
ORGANIZATION OF TUE BANK.-A meet?
ing of citizens of thia County was held
ut the town hall, on Saturday, 21st Au?
gust, 1872, for the purpose of organizing
a national bank, to be located at this
place. Stock to the requisite amoant
having been subscribed, the articles of
association were signed. The Durne of
the "Merchants' and Planters' Bank of
Union, South Carolina," was adopted as I
the name and title of the association,
with a cupitul stock of $60,000, and with
leave to increase tbe sume to any sam
not exceeding $250,000.
Tbe bank was then organized by the
election of the following Directors: Wm.
Munro, B. D. Culp, Joniah Foster, T. B.
Jeter, H. L. Goss, A. H. Foster, F. M.
Farr, W. C. Harris, Wm. Jeffries.
It wus resolved that the entire capital
stock be paid in on or before tbe first
day of November next.
At a meeting of the Directors of the
bank, the following officers were elected:
President, Wm. Munro; Vice-President,
Thomas B. Jeter; Cushier, E. R. Wal?
lace. Finance Committee-The Presi?
dent, W. C. Harris, H. L. Goss und A.

THE MEETING OFTHR EMPERORS.-Tho
meeting of the Emperors of Germany,
Russia und Austria, nt Berlin, causes a
good deul of speculation in the Euro?
pean prints. Some aro disposed to look
upon it us merely an occasiou of social
intercourse and enjoyment, which kings
crave as mach as other men, while others
assign to it a deep political significance.
Some of these consider that it is Bis?
marck's answer to the successful French
loon, and means that the 5,000,000 of
troops at the command of tho three em?
perors will be employed to compel
France to accept the situation us dictated
by tbe terms of peuce with Germany.
On the other hand, it is stated that Rus?
sia has, by telegraph, disclaimed any
purpose unfriendly to France. England
has not been invited to take part in the
conference, and the King of Italy,
though invited, has deolined. It is con?
jectured that Victor Emanuel may de?
sire not to givo offence to France, which
is giving such notable signs of recupera?
tion. Whether the republican forms
France has adopted may causo appre?
hension to the European monarchies, is
cot stated. Possibly, judging from past
experience, they may expect these to be
of brief duration. At the same time
they have shown more vitality than waa
anticipated, and their permanent estab?
lishment would bo a menace to every
throne in Europe.
The Cathedral of Canterbury, the par?
tial burning of whioh was mentioned by
cable despatches, was built in 1130. It
has been restored and beautified during
the present oentury. The celebrated
Archbishop, Thomas a Beoket, was as?
sassinated before tho high altar in 1170,
it ia alleged by minions of Henry II, on
account of differences of opinion. The
town of Canterbury existed in the time
of the Romans. It was the capital of
tbe Saxon Kingdom of Kent, and it was
here that Augustine baptized Athelbert
and 10,000 of bis Saxons. The princi?
pal celebrity of the place is derived from
its historical associations, and from its
being the metropolitan see of all Eng?
A YOUNO WOMAN DRIVEN MAD DY DE?
SERTION-LEAPING INTO THE WHIRLPOOL.
Ou Monday, August 19, a yoong lady,
dressed in deep black, with a heavy veil
over hnr tuce, registered at the Mont
E.igto Hotel, Suspension Bridge, SB Miss
J. Booth, ?Stmttord, Conneotiout. On
her arrival ?ho iuquired if there were
any letters or telegrums for her. Re?
ceiving a uegutive reply, she sought her
room with leura in her eyes, remarking,
"Ho eau not have deserted mel" The
lady remained ut the bridge until last
Suuday eveniug, scarcely able to leave
her room, excepting au occasional walk
to Whirlpool, where she was noticed by
? the "employer" to sit hour after boar
communing with her own thoughts, un?
conscious of aught oise.
Last Hominy eveniug, aftor being sup?
plied with writing materials, she left the
hotel and was seen going in the direc?
tion of the Whirlpool, since which time
there han been no tidings of her, and it
is feared that while laboring under some
mental uuguish sho threw herself into
the river a few rods below the bridge.
Their fears were strengthened this morn?
ing, when it became known that Dr.
Guarios Mathews, of Philadelphia, had
picked up nt her favorite resort the fol?
lowing lotter, with the Mont Eagle head?
ing, supposed to have been written by
Miss Booth, although it is without date
"I waited ut tho Mont Eagle anxiously
wutohing for your coming, till at length
the truth bus duwue- upon me aud un?
deceived me. I never ouu stund the ex?
posure of my disgrace, uud iu my pre?
sent stute of mind I have decided opon
tho step, and wish no longer to live.
"Your cruel desertion hus driven mo
mad. Thrice I have beeu to the river,
and the bopo that y>u might yet nome
saved me; but now hope has fled, and
my brain is on Are. From one whom
you hove wronged."
Endorsed on the note was:
"Will the tinder please address tbe
enclosed note to Charles Clark, Stratford,
Conn.? A request from one who is but
one step from eternity."
