COLUMBIA, S. C.
Sunday Morning, July 4, 1875.
An Eastorn War Cloud.
Tbc relations between the English
Government and the King of Burundi
ure still unsettled. The news is so
fluctuating and uncertain that it is bard
to tell what is the exact state of affairs
between the two countries. One day,
war is declared to bo inevitable. The
next all the clouds are reported to be
dissipated, and the sun of peace shines
over both countries in full meridian
splendor. It is very certain, however,
that there is no lasting harmony be?
tween tho two nations, although war is
not desirable just now in Asia, and
England especially does not want to fire
u gun which, before the contest is
closed, may be replied to by Kassian
batteries. The unpleasantness arises
from two causes?disputed jurisdiction
over a small strip of territory lying bo-'
twecn tho kingdom of Burmah and Bri?
tish Burmab, and from tho geographical
position of the former kingdom, which
separates British Burmah from the Chi?
nese empire. Recently a British expedi?
tion en route from India to the point of
beginning for a commercial route to
China was attacked by the Chinese
forces nnd its leader murdered. An at?
tempt was mado to arrest tho murderer,
but ho was protected and defended by
tho authorities of Burmah. No cxplana
. lion or apology was given, and that is
the open wound that still irritates and
rankles in tho minds of tho British offi?
The kingdom of Burmah is not such
a weak-handed opponent as is generally
supposed. It has a population of 1,000,
000, and tho peoplo aro tho most intel?
lectual in that portion of India. Por?
tions of its territory wero easily dismem?
bered by tho British in 182G, and again
in 1852, but within tho last ten years
Burmah has paid great attention to mili?
tary matters. Her forces have been in?
creased and tho troops supplied with
new stylo European arms and officered
by Austrian and Polish generals. The
contest, if one take place at the present
time, will, therefore, not be quite one?
sided, and tho natives of British Bur?
mah may possibly sido with their dusky
brethren and thus place tho English be?
tween two fires. It is important that
England should have permission to cross
Burmah into China at this time, when
Russia is beginning a now series of ope?
rations on tho Amoor River, and it can
bo secured in no other way. The trouble
umy end by tho whole of Burmah falling1
into the hands of England, and being
incorporated with her Indian posses?
The Beecher-Tilton scandal case has
terminated in a mis-trial and tho jury
has been discharged. The statement is
made that the vote stood three for con?
viction and nine for acquittal. Under
ull the circumstances, this result must
be considered a victory for tho plaintiff,
and Mr. Beocher has virtually been
for ad guilty of the ofl'enco with which
he was charged. Loeder is to be tried
for perjury, and Moniten defies the
Beeeherites to indict him. In fact, he

Mb. Editob: Friday we had a plea?
sant entortainment at the close of tho
year of Btndy at tho Ursulino Institute,
in the usual way, and tho Convent pu?
pils proved that they had been students,
not in name only. Misses Daisy and
Nell Aldrich, Lilly Lynch and Mary
Olarko distinguished themselves in mu?
sic on piano, guitar and harp. Many
other names were often mentioned with
honor in their respective classes. Tho
pencilings and paintings which hung
upon the walls testified to fino tasto and
culture, and tho various specimens of
needle-work showed talent and industry,
proving thero were few hours of idleness
spent by the young ladies during tho
past year. The system of education given
m the Convent is very thorough, em
bmoiug, with the curriculum of studies
usual in a first class institute, those les?
sons of domestic economy so nccossary
to homo comfort and health. The
grounds surrounding tho Convent are
spacious, and afford ample room for open
air exercise, which, judging from the
tine and healthful appearance of the stu?
dents, they know well how to enjov.
Loeder as a 13LACK.MAir.mi.?The Bos?
ton lilubc prints a letter from Mr. W. H.
Morey, a gentleman of standing in that
city, concerning Loeder, whoso recent
affidavit is made public after the closo of
the caso for tho defendant in theBeechor- j
Tilton case. Mr. Morey writes that he
knows Loeder too well, and continues:
"During tho year 18(58, Mr. Joseph Loed?
er canic to Boston and established a
small upholstery store in one of our
principal streets, and for six months did
a moderate business. He was a good
workman himself, and his employees
wero also good and apparently under?
stood their trade. About this time a
lady, living and moving in tho best
South-end society, wanted something |
done to her lambrequins, sent for Loeder, 1
she having previously heard qf him and 1
his expertness in the trade through a
friend of hers. Mr. Loeder came, esti?
mated the probable cost, and set the day
on which he should call for them. Every?
thing so far was perfectly satisfactory.
Meanwhile this yonn^ lady's brother,
who had been absent for many years,
unexpectedly returned, and on tho very
day, as it happened, that Mr. Loeder
was to call for the curtains. Of course
ho saw thoir affectionate embraces, for
this brother had always loved his sister,
and she was rather demonstrative in her
actions toward him, since she had not
seen him for many years. The curtains
wore finally repaired, and Mr. Loeder
received his pay, and for three days no?
thing was heard of him. At tho expira?
tion of that time a lotter como directed
to this lady, and was postmarked Boston.
On opening it, and glancing at tho sig?
nature, sho was greatly surprised to see
Mr. Loeder's name. The letter run thus:
My Respected Mrs. M. W.?Dear
Madame: You will feel surprised in
hearing from mo again, particularly
through a letter. Nevertheless I feel it
my duty in calling your attention to the
fact that while working at your house I
noticed many unladylike demonstrations
on your part toward that gentleman. I
thought it very improper at tho time,
especially as you were a married lady.
Unkind as it may appear, I fool it my
duty to warn your husband, unless you
immediately iucloso $100 to my address.
The letter, being shown to tho hus?
band and brother, nearly caused Mr.
Loeder to get the top of his head shot
off, but finally both gentlemen were per?
suaded to a milder course. Mr. Loeder
was visited, told how wrong ho was,
made to retract his unjust accusation and
finally to leave the city for good.

Bridgcrs was appointed Chairman, and
Geo. Yonge Secretary. It was stated
that the rates were being gem rally
cut, and it was desirable to establish
rates that would be maintained. A sub?
committee was appointed to report rates
for the action of the convention.
The sub-committee reported a resolu?
tion that with concurrent action of the
Green Line and all comp? ting lines,
they recommend the adoption of the
tariff and classification cd' May 12, ltt73,
from all Eastern cities to Chattanooga,
Tenn., and to all competing points in
the Carolinas, Georgia and Alabama.
On motion of Mr. Fink, it was agreed
that the Boston rates of August 20, 1874,
be adopted to Columbia and Augusta,
and that Charlotte rates be made the
same as to Columbia and Augusta.
Resolutions were offered and adopted
as follows: By J. N. DcBurry, that the
acceptance of the rates be conditioned
upon the action of each of the railroad
companies and steamship lines compet?
ing for business agreeing to maintain
tho same in good faith, and in the event
of any lino declining to protect these
rates, then the other Hues to take such
discriminative action as will protect the
same. By Gen. W. L. James, that all
deviations, whether by drawbacks or
failure of any of the lines represented to
prevent tho uso of combined locals,
shall not be permitted without the au?
thority of said commissioners.
Another meeting was held at the St.
Nicholas Hotel on Thursday, the 24th, at

1873, with the exceptions adopted April
10, 1875; to Charlotte, Columbia and
Augusta, the Augusta rates of the Boston
convention, August 20, 1871, and similar
classification as beyond Augusta; that no

between the lines, which has been waged
since last February.

Killed.? A colored girl, about twelve
years of age, was killed on the South
Carolina Railroad, near Kingville, on
Friday last, by being run over by the
train. We learn that the girl was idiotic,
and had been in the habit of playing and
walking on the track, near which she
lived. Those in charge of the train are
exempt from condemnation, as it was
impossible to avert the casualty. This
is another lesson to parents who permit
their children to frequent railroad tracks
