Columbia, Nov. 12. The board of State
canvassers meet to-morrow to count the vote.
Senator Gordon arrived to-day on a special
train, and will be present daring the ses
sion of the board of canvassers. A number of
Northern Senators are expected to arrive to
morrow. The Democrats are still confident
that the State has gone for Tllden and Hamp
ton. Some Republicans admit Hampton's
election, bat confident Republicans have
carried the State for Hayes' electoral ticket.
They assert that the board of State ' can
vassers will throw ont enough Totes to elect
Chamberlain and the Republican electoral
I Section 23, chapterS.orthfeEevised Statutes
provides tbattbe Secretary of State, Comptrol
ler General, Attorney General, State Treasurer,
Adjutant and Inspector General ami chairman
of the committee on privileges and elections
of the Home of Representatives shall consti
tute a board of canvassers, four of whom
shall be a sufficient number to form the board.
The following are
THE MEMBERS Or THE BOARD:
Henry E. Hayne, (colored,) Secretary of
State; Thos. Calunn, (white,) Comptroller
General; Wm. Stone, (white,) Attorney Gen
eral; F. L. Cardozo, (colored,) State Treas
urer; H. W. Purvis, (colored,) Adjutant and
Inspector General, and II. J. Hlrsch, chair
man oC the committee on privileges and elec
tions of the House of Representatives. All
the members of the board of canvassers are
Hayne, Cardozo and Dunn are candi latea for
re-election. Hirsch, who is" a candidate for
solicitor of the third judicial district, is not
acting with board of canvassers at this time.
Hayne, Cardozo, Dunn, Stone and Purvis con
stitute the board of canvassers as now organ
ized. The board claims a right to decide who
are elected, and there is no appeal from their
decision except to courts. In the case of the
Governor and Lieutenant Governor, .however,
the final decision rests with the Legislature.
In case tSere Is a contest for county officers,
the county canvassers decide who is elected.
In this particular Instance the State board of
canvassers occupy a del'cate and Important
trust, at they are called upon to decide upon
their own election, three members of the board
being candidates for re-election. The decision
of the board In throwing oat votes in any
county for alleged frauds -virtually ends mat
ters so far as they are concerned. Every
thing appears to be quiet. There is no excite
ment to-day, but all are anxiously awaiting
the -meeting of the board of canvassers. A
number or prominent citizens from all parts of
the State are present.
Charleston, Nov. 12. Latest corrected
returns' give the Democratic State ticket 1,318
majority. Tflden'a electois in thirteen out of
thirty-two counties are 712 behind the Stale
ticket. Governor Chamberlain claims' the
State for the Republicans by 2.030.
Special to the XiUonal Itejubtlcin.l
Columbia, S. C, Nov. 13. The rifle
clubs from all portions of the State threaten
a raid on this city next Thursday, with a view
to intimidating the board of State canvassers.
Governor Chamberlain has received letters
fiom all portions of the State threatening h'm
with murder if he docs not declare Hampton
and Tflden elected. We have carried South
Carolina! for Hayes, but Tilden's Ku-Klux
friends threaten to change the result at the
point of the assassin's pistol. We cannot
escape serious trouble, unless the President
protects us as he has the Flordians and LouisI
anians. T. F. L.

Charleston, S. C, Nov. 12. Let
no attention be paid to the Associated
Frees dispatches which are sent from this city
In the interest of Tllden and Hampton. They
are written by one F. W. Dawson, the Cen
tennial liar, who boasts that his lies are more
potential than truths. We have saved South
Carolina to honest government, and despite
the ahot-guns of the rebels the State will give!
Chamberlain and Hayes 8,000 majority. The
rebels are organizing all over the State, and
declare that they will murder the returning
board at Columbia on next Thursday when the
election results are declared. We look to the
President for protection against this last ef
fort of the Ku-Klux, Democracy. C.
Savanxah, Ga., Nov. 12. A special to the

Is no ptace for a soul
Thai's distracted with donbt '.
Lt as know who is In,
Let us know who is ont;
For our eves they grow dim
At on figures we rate
That make it for Tllden
And make It for Hayes
Oh I for seers' and for prophets
Like those of the Jews !
They were better than papers
That plague us with news:
They were smarter than editors, '
All In a due.
Who tell us tls-Tiiaen,
And tell us 'tis Hayes.
Call the spooks and'the mejumi;
Perhaps they will know.
Summon Slide with his pencil
And Home with his show.
Let them rap on our sconces
To end our amaxe.
And say if'tu Tllden,
Or say If tlsHayes.
Is that phantasmal vote
Hid In the mountains or swamps ?
Go, Uraja, with your lanterns,
Go, Blocs, with your lamps,
Hunt It down, and when captured
Just clre It a blare,
Whether fatal to Tllden
We long for a season
Of quiet and rest
To wipe off our mnstaehe
Ana pull down oar vest;
Cat how can we do It
When boys stop their plays
To shoot madly far Tllden
And madly for Hayes 7
Ocr yoang men grow gray
And oar fat men grow thin,
Fed on "extras" that lie
Like original sin.
Give as calm for our slumbers
- And psaee for oar days.
For we r weary ot Tllden
And weary of Hayes.,
It isn't every electioruvhicb. gives both sides
the pleasure of a victory, even for a day apiece.
Hon. Ruins I. Frost has riled a petition for a
recount of the votes in the Fourth Massachu
setts Congressional district.
"Claim everything', concede nothing," said
the Democratic circular issued ten days before
the election, and most faithfully have the rank
and file iollowed instructions.
The Democrats claimed that they had Colo
rado up to and two days after the Inauguration
of Governor Routt. They will continue to
claim the election of Tllden, whether elected
or not, until the 4th of March.
Gov. Hendricks seems to take a philosophi
cal view of the situation. Talking about that
fatal 'one vote which he and Gov. Tllden are
looking for, he said on Wednesday night, "The.
last straw may break the camel's back..!
General Thomas S. Dakia,. Democratic can
didate for Congress in the Third New York
district, proposes to contest the election of
Chittenden, claiming, to be satisfied that he
(Dakln) was elected by the popular vote.
There is a vague suspicion- in the public
mind that this delay In the verdict is a con
spiracy to sell newspapers. In the newspaper
office?, on the contrary; there' Is a'flr'm'convic
victlon that It Is a deliberate plot to kill ofT the
editors'. Xtv Tork Tribune.
In every really doubtful State thus .far de
cided the result has proved that the Demo
cratic "claims" and boasts were ridiculously
false. Is it not about time lor Democrats to
understand that such claims" are liable to be
misleading as to the remaining disputed States !
On Wednesday the Democrats claimed Hit
nois, in the faci of a Republican majority of
20,000; Thursday they claimed Ohio; Friday it
was South Carolina; Saturday Louisiana and
Florida; Sunday it was Oregon; to day it will
perhaps be Vermont, and to-morrow Massa
chusetts. Troops at Columbia
Ail of the-Uu'ted States tioopi stationed at
Aiken, South Carotin t,were yesterday ordered
to Columbia to protect the Stale Board of Can
vassers,which is holding meetings at the latter
place. Subsequently the order was so modified
as to leave two companies of soldiers at Aiken,
where trouble is threatened.
Spanish Pilgrimages to. Borne.
The correspondent of the London Timet,
writing from Barcelona; October 0, gives .the
following singular account of the recent pil
grimages from Spain to Rome-: "Eight hun
dred unhappy pilgrims, chiefly women and
girls from country villages in Catalonia, Arri'
gon and Valencia, sailed from Barcelona In
the steamer Bourgosne at 10 a. m. to-day.
At 10 p. m. the steamer put back Into the har
bor, and a message was sent that the ma
chinery had broken down. The fact was these
poor, ignorant country girls, brought by their
priests from lonely hill towns to go (o Rome,
bad been told that the forty-chilling passage
money there and back included provisions, or
at least bread, for the fifty-hours' voyage. Ar
rived at sea,, penniless and hungry, these poor
country lads and misguided, girls, many not
over 17 years old, cried for bread, and werere,
fused and told to buy- bread or eat their own.
They had spent their all for the privilege of
breathing the same air as the Pope, larjcjtng
it then- duty; they .had not a penny? and a
mutiny arose. The ship put back into Barce
lona harbor, where I have just (past mid
night) been to s.eeher, and the unhappy
eight hundred-lads and girls have to pass the
mgnt in jumper on aecK. jl more cruel act
on the part of the parochial clergy who led,
these superstitious children into trouble it' is'
hard to conceive. The indignation hereis
great, arid." .the' clergy were hooted on the'
wharf. October 11 Another steamer, the1
Immaculada, Conception, with, six hundred
and forty.nine pilgrims, chiefly priests and
peasant glrla and lads from the hills of Cata
lonia and Aragon, sailed last night for Civita
Vecchia. The pilgrims formed no procession,
but were insulted "by the crowd on the
landing quay. On "board, the vessel, when
1 cot up. the confused crowd danced, sun? and
hurrahed,' women cried to find themselves ia
such company, and men "Joked. Cheers and
riras were given for Charles VIII, 'The Pope1
our King,' holy religion, and El Siglo Faturo.
On board this steamerlmmaculada Conception!
each pilgrim donned at once -the famous Uar-
list heart, and a monogram which I did not
understand. Strict orders were -riven that 'no:
one save pilgrims should be admitted onboard,!
but two lads in a boat were invited by a pries?
to until.- 'iiesiui to the rope.' iuey accepted;
the offer, we're insulted, and bustled' down'

A War Correspondent's Mishaps.
The correspondent Of the London Xcas
writes : By noon next day -we had reached
Chupren, three or four miles from .where .thai
road begins to ascend to the' pass over that1
spur of the Balkans which here interposes lie-,
tween Belogradshlk and Ak-Palanka." Hero
there was another halt, and my driver ln
formed me that the road over this pass-was so
steep and difficult that it would be necessary
to get the assistance; of bullocks to drag us
over, for which I should, of course, have to
pay. It took two hours to find the bullocks,
and nearly two hours more for the slow-moving
brutes to reach the spot where their ser
vices were needed, so that by the time we be
gan to ascend the mountain the best part of
the afternoon was gone. The horses were
taken out of the carriage, the bullocks put in,
and we dashed gaily forward at'a rate" which
might have caused a snail to laugb us to
scorn. What made it the more exasperating
was that the road was not bad at. all, and that
it appeared to me the. bullocks were entirely
unnecessary. It -began, to grow dark, before
we reached the summit, and I was Just begin,
nlng to congratulate myself on the prospect of
getting rid of the bullocks, when
TIIEItE WAS A SUDDEN CEA8H,
apparently on the road above us, which
sounded exactly like the breaking of a huge
beam of wood. The mountain was covered
with trees, and a heavy black cloud which
had for the last hour been gathering behind
their tope, threatening rain,madelne thlntat

us, and that a gust of wind' had carried away

same thing, for they paid no further attention
to this sudden. -crash than to -harry forward
the cattle as fast as possible. 'For a minute
oc two we heard.nothing.more, when an irreg
ular discharge of musketry broke on our ears,
and a few bullets whistled over our heads;
My party was thrown Into the wildest conster
nation, which was not in the least decreased
by the fact that the firing continued' in ah ir
regular manner, and kept growing rather hot
ter. v The crash we had heard was , a'volley of
musketry. They were not long in taking, si

with a suddenness which produced on my
mind the effect of an unexpected trick of

I soon made out that our patty, was, not the'
object against which it was directed, 'and that
we probably had not been seen at all. Th'erc(

Curiosities of the Telegraph.
We can imagine the astonishment of a but
ler who received a telegram from his master,
a certain nobleman, asking him to send at ones'
"ten bob," as he was "greatly In need of it."
Of course the message had been wrongly
transmitted, "ten bob" having originally beeii
"tin "box." This story, which happened not
many years ago, was told me by a gentleman!
who .was In the telegraph service at the time,
and had to deal with the complaint which was!
made about the matter. The following also;
comesr from thej same source ; At one of thej
gatherings' held periodically 'at Bremear, some'
years ago, a certain earl telegraphed, to Edin
burgh for a "cocked hat," to bo "sent to him at
once. In transmitting the mess-go.the article
mentioned as wanting was. converted Into
"cooked h'amVwhlch.was actually forwarded
forthwith, greatly to the surprise and indignu
tlon of the nobleman. A telesram was ones
received as 'follows: "Please send your!
'pig' to meet me at the station." Of
course, It should have been "gig," the lustra-,
ment having : made -what, ;!a , telegraphic
phraseology, is 'called a false dot'. Over and,1

unfortunately tbe same cannot be said of the
.Servians, .notwithstanding the , assistance of
our volunteers, many of whom, shed tholr
blood for the Sclavonic cause. I k'now'that all)

sufferings of our brethren 'and co-rellgtontsts.
The' true interests of Russia are', however,'
dearer to me than all. My wish to the utter-'
most is to spare Russian blood. Therefore 1

A few dars after the accident a young gen-.

rived from.'New Orleans to search for his
brother, Henry Clemens, who was! also clerk
on the Pennsylvania. We need not describe
the meeting. Every one had been attracted
by this young- boy, Henry, whose youth' and
slight physique were called upon to endure so
much, and whose refined, graceful, mariner
made It a gladness todoforhlmwhat'eould
be aonein the absence of the mother and sis
ter, for whom his heart grew sick. Once';ih

;what mother would do were I at home!" Oh!
after all, it was mother's love for which he
yearned, buteven.tbat. strong as.it is, had no
power, to stay the decree gonevforth toset
bounds to his dsys. Lacking for dear presence,
there were there, with gentle hands aud tones,
to; do for, him, to tenderly bind up the poor
scalded hands and fold, them oyer agtctte

What Idoreniember, without the least trouble

lavish outpouring of money and sympathy,
and that this did not fail and die out, but listed
through to the end. Even then, neither the

hausted, for the Pennsylvania's victims-Were
hardly disposed of before those of the St.
Nicholas were brought there, and were received
