"A Hit?A Palpable Hit."?In allud?
ing to General Sherman's reported de?
claration that tho Fifth Maryland Regi?
ment exhibited a want of disoipline at
the Bunker Hill parade, tho Washington
Star says: "To this it might be retorted
thot the General himself was never very
famous as a disciplinarian, as his own
account of his celebrated march to the
sea clearly shows."

Ouk Telegraphic Despatches.?We
are pleased to ho able to announco to
our readers that from and after this
morning, we will be able to give them
a largely increased quantity of tolc
graphio matter. The Associated Press
service has been increased from 2,750
words to 3,850 words per diem. This
will enable us to furnish 1,100 words, or
one column, of telegraphic matter addi?
tional, and will niako our reports much
faller and more interesting. Improve?
ment will also ho made in the commer?
cial branch of the service We are in?
debted for tho increased telegraphic ser?
vice to the courtesy of the Western Union
Telegraph Company?a corporation
which has always dealt kindly and libe?
rally with the Associated Press.
French Finances.?The latest French
financial statement from M. Leon Say is
a far more remarkable tale than any
other nation has to tell. Tho war has
added in round numbers $155,000,000 to
the annual charges of the Government,
and in this' is made no aDowanoe for the
increase of burden caused by the loss of
Alsace and Lorraine. Nevertheless, if
we leave out of account the annual rc
. payments of $40,000,000 to the Bank of
France, tho Government has had a
surplus every year since 1871, and $130,
000,000 of new taxes have been laid on.
The indirect taxes alone yielded in 1874
over $370,000,000, or more than the whole
annual revenue of Great Britain, equal
to that of the United States; and this
was an increase of about $10,000,000
. over 1873. Mr. Leon Say estimates his
surplus next year at $30,000,000, whioh
the London Economist does not think by
any means over' sanguine, and ho there?
fore proposes to impose ho new addi?
tional burdens on the country, and even
sees not a very remote prospect of be?
ginning to reduce the debt or the taxes,
or both. But he announces his inten?
tion of postponing the resumption of
-specie payments until January 1, 1878,
on the ground of the plan that taking
time to prepare is a good one, as is shown
by the example of England in 1819, and
of the United States to-day. Another
reason is that if he resumed specie pay?
ments the Bank of France would have
to withdraw the convertible notes which
it was allowed to issue during the war as
part of the consideration of the loan it
nir.de to tho Government at the low rate
of ono percent, and therefore the Go?
vernment ought, in common fairness,
to repay tho loan in full, which it is now
able to do, before ordering resumption
Courtesy for the South Invoked.?
The New York Herald invokes hospitality

"Not only were we. tho victors in tho
struggle between the two sections, not
only were wc saved from the devastation
of actual war, but it is our part to re?
member, what has been too much for?
gotten by us, that we did impose upon
them of the South a change of habits,
customs and prejudices greater than has
been imposed upon any civilized people,
and that whatever opposition they may
have made to this in tho first years after
tho war, they have now, in good faith
and honorably, accepted it; havo actually
conformed their lives to it; are peacefully
and steadily pursuing their industries
with free labor, and have everywhere

party has had bad luck in nearly every
other great city in the United States, and
it might improve its chances by holding
council in tho pure atmosphere of the
Mississippi Valley this time. Cincinnati
ropresents Buchanan and dissolution;
Charleston is identified with the glooini

has two defeats treasured up against her,

Tamino the Shrew.?Tho great Shaks
pearean comedy, at the Opora House to?
I Tue Gbeatest Judicial O?tbaoe or
Modebn Times.?On Saturday, Adam
Crews, one of the murderers of Dr.
Shell, was arrested atColumbia and con?
fined in jail. There was Judge Car
I penter, but no application for a writ of
habeas corpus was made to him, although
[ he was the Judgo of the Circuit. Trick
orv was noceBsary, and a fit tool was
selected in the person of Judgo Mackey,
of the Sixth Circuit. Without notifica?
tion to the State's attorney of tho Eighth
Circuit, where the prisoner was to be
tried, or awaiting the production of evi?
dence for tho purpose of determining
what amount of bail, (if bailable at all,)
the offence required, this soi disarit
Judgo hurriedly issues his writ, and
without notice to any one, permits the
prisoner to give bail in the sum of $300,
and that onnis own recognizance! Tho
Judges of the Supreme Court were in
Columbia. Judge Carpenter was in Co?
lumbia. All had jurisdiction. Each
one of theso men to-day must stand
higher in tho opinion of South Caro?
linians than ever before. We thank
God that thoy had to leave the Supreme
Bench and the Columbia Circuit to find a
tool for this outrage on law and justice.
We chronicle it to the honor of caoh of
theso men that they must have been
above approach in such a mutter, and
we chronicle it to the eternul disgrace of
this man Mackey, that he was selected
as a fit instrument for this judicial in?
famy. Jeffreys, the most corrupt and infa?
mous Judge who ever sat upon tho bench,
would not havo dared to so outrage publio
justice, and Durell, his prototype, has
never so failed in his duty. Ho usurped
jurisdiction, under pressure from the
Administration, in order to destroy tho
political liberties of a State, but ho never
turned a murderer loose upon the com?
munity. Jeffreys! Durell! and Mackey!!!
We charge thiB man with buying prosti?
tuted shamefully the high office of Judge,
for this: 1. He should not havo enter?
tained the application favorably out of
his circuit, and at the residence of tho
Supreme Court Judges and of Judgo
Carpenter, without a strong showing. 2.
Ho should have notified tho State's attor?
ney to introduce such evidence as would
enable him to determine the propor
amount of' bail, if upon such evidence
the offence was bailable. 3. If he pro?
ceeded Without'sUoh evidence, he should
have fixed his boil At an amount com?
mensurate to tho horrible erimo of mur?
der. 4. Ho oho aid have required other
? security than tho man charged with the
murder. Docs not this offer a premium
to murder? Does not this moke of jus?
tice a mockery? Oh, South Carolina!
how low have you fallen! This man
dares to do this iniquitous? act, in order
to secure the Joe Crews influence, in aid
of his further aspirations for position.
But it shall never be. Tho iniquities of
this murderer aro more than surpassed
in this open outrage of law in the person
of the man, the Judge who has sworn to
do justice to all men, and no Legislature
would venture to endorse him after such
a violation of law.?Oreenville News.
The GnAss-nopPEB Chop.?In Minne?
sota, they are paying $1.60 a bushel for
I gross-hoppers?after they are caught and
I killed, of course. Little boys and girls
get ten cents a quart; two boys made six
dollars a day on grass-hoppers, and Blue
Earth County* has paid already over
$15,000 for the extermination of this
plague. An ingenious Minnesotian has
contrived a trap, run by horse power
which catches from five to twenty
bushels a day, and tho catchers bring
them to town in wagons, wheelbarrows,
and even in bags on their backs. When
paid for, they are buried in deep
trenches, and it is said that by next
week, Minnesota will be rid of* grass?
hoppers. It is proposed that, inasmuch
as the extermination of the insect inte?
rests the whole State, and not only the
localities where thoy make their first ap?
pearance, the State "shall assume the cost
of their destruction, and this seems but
just. Will not some ingenious Yankee
now discover a use for the grass-hopper?
Could he not be used for manure? Has
he no oil, good for rheumatism, or watch
I springs, or machinery? Will not some
one undertake to prepare desiccated
gross-hoppers for the use of the Digger
[ Indians in California? If he could get a
contract from the Indian Bureau, there
might be millions in it. The utilization
of waste products is now-o-doys one Of
the more notable sources of wealth; and
any one who should be so fortunate as to
invent a use for the grass-hopper would
make so large and rapid u fortune that
ho might hope to tempt others into dis?

LnCrosse, in Hancock County, was lite?

last, by two noted dcstXC&ulocs, who
broke jail last week at Oquawkn, Hen?
derson County. They came South, com?
mitting robberies both day and night.
On their way, they went through a
jewelry store at Burlington, whence they
went out on the Toledo, Pcorio and War?
saw Bailroad to Discor, robbing eight
houses in succession. They had taken
about $2,000 in the vicinity of LaCrosse,
at which place the Deputy Sheriff from
Laharp attempted to arrest them, but
tho desperadoes seized the Sheriff, and,
after taking from him bis arms and
money, armed themselves with shot?
guns and took possession of tho town.
They declared themselves tho equals of
the James Brothers and Youngcrs, and,
after taking what pluuder they could,
went into tho woods. About fifty men
went in pursuit of thorn, but did not
capture them. La the night, they stolo
somo horses and passed between Car?
thage and the river, going South. A re?

To the President of (he Board of Health?
My Deab Sib: The condition of the
marsh on the Western side of tho City
Hospital being prejudicial to tho health
of the inmates of the Hospital, I would
respectfully ask that the Board of Health
will endeavor to secure the drainage of

ing of the butcher pen in tho immediate

7b the President and Members of the
Board of Health of the City of Columbia ?
Gentlemen: I have the honor to report
that I have made proper examination of
oil the premises in Ward 2, and ordered
the use of lime wherever needed. I
found the premises of Mrs. Hoffman and
Mr. C. Brill?the former on Assembly
strcot and the latter on Washington
street?in very bad order, and have or?
dered them to bo cleansed, giving them
until Wednesday morning for this pur?
pose. Very respectfully,
Chairman, Ac, Word 2.
Dr. Heinitsh, from Ward .1, made a
verbal report, calling attention to the
condition of the drainage from tho
Wheeler House on to Taylor street.
Columbia, S. C, June 21, 1875.
To the Chairman and Membeiw of the
Boabd or Health: The committee of
this bodv for the 4th Ward, through my?
self as Chairman, beg leave, under a re?
solution of a late meeting, to present the
Your committee have not os yet made
any very exhaustive examinations of
Eremises in our Ward, but tho Chairman
os examined some premises reported to
him as obnoxious to people and resi?
dents near the some, and has attended
to such localities, and in most instances
the parties owning or renting the pre?
mises have shown a disposition to render
strict obeyance to the law, and promised
to have all sinks and other places imme?
diately cloansed and purified. But there
is one thins I wish to bring to the notice
of tho board. That is as to relations of
landlord and tenant. Your committeo
hove found some out-houses in filthy
condition?in fact, nuisances?in which
the tenant claims that to the landlord be?
longs the righting of tho some, as he or
Bhe nas been but a short time o tenant;
and, on tho other hand, the landlord
claims it as the duty of tho said tenant.
This, I think, is a question that the
board should at once decide, as summer
is upon us, and delays are dangerous to
health and life.
Another matter I wish to bring before
this body is a perfect hole of miasma at
the corner of Gadsden street and Elm
wood avenue. This place is calculated
to breed disease and all sorts of insects
at the present time; mud, slush and
water are at least six inches thick, and
it fills with every rain. There was a pe?
tition by citizens, some six weeks ago,
presented to the Council, which I am in?
formed was referred to the appropriate
committee for consideration, but for
some cause the said committee has never
seen fit to report on the same, and, in
consequence, the Street Overseer was
powerless to act. What is required and
asked for is a brick or rock drain, from
the East side of Gadsden street across
Elm wood avenue, to strike West or be?
low tho foot of the bridge fronting ths
Pair Grounds, and one from some street,
on tho West side, to intersect tho same.
If the Council will not do this, we think
it the immediate duty of the board to act,
as the health of all residents near is en?
dangered. We would, therefore, recom?
mend that this be attended to at once,
and that the committee, or some member
of the board, be ordered to act at once,
and have the work done, should not
Council act on the same at its next nieet
ing. I am informed by competent judges
that to a contractor the. work could be
done for$80 or if he hail to buy the
rock; but if done by the city, I think
would not cost over ?00. This, we
think, is much better than endangering
the health of hundreds of citizens.
. CHAS. BAHN I'M, Chairman.
Dr. Heinitsh moved that a committee
of throe be appointed lo investigate the
nuisance in the drain from Wheeler
House on to Taylor street, and the best
mode of abating said nuisance, and to
report at the next meeting of this board.
The President appointed E. H. Hei?
nitsh, J. A. Hcndrix and II. Daniels.
Moved by C. BarilUUi that the City
Council be requested to erect a rock
drain at once from East corder Gadsden
street and Ehuwood, so as to effect n
complete drainage, and !f not acted upon
b}' the City Council nt their next meeting,
that a committee of three of this board be
appointed to have it done at the expense
of the city. Carried.
Committee appointed in eise the
Council should not act?C. B.irnum, J.
T. Zealy, John Nott.
By C. Bornum?That the City Council
bo requested to have the marsh West of
tho City Hospital, and tho butcher pen,
drained and purified witli disinfectants.
By C. Barnum -That no fish bo
brought into this city from other cities
for public salo in this market from this
date to the 1st October next. Carried.
The Chairman of Ward 2, H. Daniels,
stated that he, in company with several
citizens, had that day visited tho Water
Works, and found them and the water at
present in good order.
On motion, tho board adjourned.
