MISS VAN ZANDT AGAIN.
This Chicago heiress and heroin(
is now playing the roll of the author

and is now assisting in the sale of at
autobiography of the condemned an
archist, August Spies, to whom she i.
affianced, and for whom, led on by in
fatuation, she is "cutting np such fan

GOOD MAY GROW OUT OF IT.
The controversy over the Canadian
fisheries has about subsided. Commis
sioners of the two countries will suc
ceed in arbitrating amicably this oft
disputed question, which it is to be
hoped will put a quietus to it for an
other century The talk of war by
newspapers on both sides of the At
lantic, and by certain belligerent con
gessznen, has done no harm and may
do this country good by arousing our
government to the necessity of having
4 sufficient navy to protect its com
merce and ports. There is a clamor
for coast defences for our own State.
eharleston's defences are inefficient,
the ews and Courier declares, to re
sist a naval attack, and there are oth
ers; the Palmetto Post claims that Port
Poyal, the most inviting port in the
State for an enemy to land, is totally
without any means of defence.
This talk of war has already brought
Congress to the front. Twenty-one
millions of dollars are to be spent in
the purchase of steel suitable for wax
purposes, and the erection of fortifica
lions and other works.
FRIGHTFUL LOSS OF LIFE.
On the 5th of February an Express
*Train in New England, running at
their usual high rate of speed, was
precipitated in a moment from Wood
etock bridge, sixty feet to the frozen
river below, occasioned, as is claimed,
by a broken rail.
'Four heavily loaded passenger cars,
every foot of available space-crowd
ed with pesns going to Montreal,
for the purpose of attending the "icee
carnival-were thus rushed with their
loads of gay, hilarious passengers into
a terrible, heartrending doom, and
without a minutes warning impend
ing danger. The engine and postal
car passed over the bridge safely; but
the coaches, striking the abuttments,
were thus knocked back in the man
The loss of life is appalling!i Fifty
killed outright and eighty, perhaps
twice that number wounded, mangled
anid burnt by the terrific conflagra
tion immediately following the catas
trophe. The night was intensely cold
ad the suffering was thus augmented
to a very great degree. Horrible:
A Mean Revenge.
Orangeburg Times and Democrat.
In a late discussion of cotton
weights between Col. S. W. Nelson, of
Clarendon County, and the Charleston
Cotton Exchange, many affidavits
from outsiders were published by
Colonel Nelson to substantiate his
charge that cotton shipped to Charles
ton invariably fell short in weights.
One of the affidavits thus published
was from Messrs. Turner & Brother,
merchants of Clarendon County.
Tneir affidavit contained no charge of
fraud, but simply stated that the cot
ton shipped by them to their factors
in Charleston, Messrs. Smythe & Ad
ger, generally lost in weight. There
was certainly no harm in their stating
this fact, ifit was true, and we pre
sume it was as Messrs. Smythe & Ad
ger did not deny it, yet, we learn
from the anning Tms, when
Messrs. Turner & Brother visited
Chaileston recently and, after paying
up every cent due on account of last
year's business, tried to make a con
tract for another year, that Messrs.
Smythe & Adger refused to continue
to advance to them' because they had
made the affidavit alluded to above.
As the Tims says Messrs. Smythe &
Adger are masters of their own mon
ey and have th right tb do with it a
they plese, but is it reanly to senL
suich revenge? Because they hold a
position high iu life on account of the
influence of their gold, is it right to
strike such a blow at the prosperity
country merchant, regardless of the
magnitude of his business, is, with
few exceptions, obliged to have some
one to act as a factor, to furnish him
means through the year, and if they
are to be treated by the Charleston
factors as Messrs. Smythe & Adger
treated Messrs. Turner & Brother the
sooner they find a new base of opera
tions the better. In other words, if
our country merchants and farmers
are to be snubbed by Charleston fac
tors simply because they say that the
cotton shipped to that place loses in
weight they had better transfer their
t business to some city where they will
be more courteously treated. This
attempt on the part of Messrs. Smythe
& Adger to punish a firm for telling
the truth will not help them nor the
trade of Charleston, and we would ad
vise those gentlemen to mend their
ways if they want any business from
[From Our Own Correspondent.]
ViAsHIrGToo, Feb. 7, 1887.
Every one seems to have been surprised
when it was announced that there was real
ly to be a change in the Cabinet soon. So
many unfounded reports of Cabinet changes
have found their way to Washington from a
distance during the present Administration
that people were not disposed to credit and
rumor on this subject.
But now it is generally believed that Sec
retary Manning intends to leave the Treasu
ry Department after the adjournment of Con
gress, to accept the presidency of the Nation
al Bank of New York, at a salary of $20,O0,
more than twice what he gets as a member
of the Cabinet. There has been much spec
ulation during the past few days as to his
probable successor. and as to whether his
resignation has anything to do with un
pleasantness between him and the Presid
There has been another woman suffrage
debate in the Senate and another vote with
the usual result. "That was a magnificent
triumph," exclaimed Mrs. Susan B. Antho
ny, as she gazed at the printed record of the
vote of two to one against her with which
the Senate rejected the Sixteenth Amend
ment. There is nothing like her unfatiling
cheerfulness in the midst of defeat, She
cannot be dismayed by adversity, and op
timistically greets every reverse with a smile
There has also boen a rattlng and spirit
ed Woman's Suffrage convention at this fa
vorite rallying point of theirs since I last
wrote you. This was their nineteenth an
nuallmeeting here, and Miss Anthony says
it was one of the most successful they have
ever had. The meetings were largely at
tended and the speaking was the best that
the ladies could do. They were much pleas
ed at the good attendance, and compared
the over-flowing audiences of this winter
with the empty benches they addressed in
years gone by, saying it was now almost the
fashionable thing to do to go to the Wo
man's Rights convention.
They have planned a great celebration for
next winter, in honor of the fortieth anni
versaay of the beginning of their movement
in this country. Forty years ago, Mrs. Eliz
abeth Cady Stanton, at a meeting in Seneca
Fahs, New York, introduced the first reso
lution favoring the franchise of woman.
She is billed for a speech on the same sub
ject at the anniversary celebration, although
her husband is quoted as saying that she is
done with the suffrage agitation.
Mr. Stanton said that his wife is convinc
ed that her sex does not want to vote. They
do not suffer any inconvenience from the
lack of the ballot, added he, they do not de.
sire it to any ap~preciable extent, and the
suffrage agitators are banging away at some
thing that offers no response whateves. He
thought if one woman in every ten, yes, in
every hundred, would petition Congress for
the ballot they would get it at once.
As the time for the President to sign or
veto the Inter-State commerce bill approach
es, interest in the subject increases. Sena
tors and Representatives question each oth
er in order to learn all the talk of the houses
and lobbies, and reports that the President
will sign it or veto it fly alternately between
the White House and the CapitoL.
Assuming that the measure will get the
Executive signature, if there is any dilfecl
ty in the selection of men to serve their
country on the railway commission atS$7,500)
a year, it will not be found in the sparsity
of candidates. but rather in the rodundancy
of talent that will be spread before the
President. There are about sixty men who
have been mentioned for commissioners,
many of whom have been prominent and
are now relegated to private life.
The issue between the President and the
Senate in regard to the Recorder of Deeds
is very simple and cannot, in its present
phase, be distorted into a question involv
ing the right of a colored democrat to hold
offie, as has been attempted. The people
of the District asked for one of their own
men for the offie. 'The President served
them with a stranger, and the Senate refus
d to confirm the appointment, The Presi
dent re-appointed him, and the Senate
again rejected him. That is all there is of
it. And until the name of a colored citizen
of the District is sent in for the offce by the
President and rejected by the Senate, it can
not honestly be claimed that the color line
issue is a factor in the case.
THE CITY OF THE SAND HILLS.
Fuvrox, S. C., Jan. 11, 1887.
That the Augusta and Manchester
Rail Road will be built, and run quite
near Fulton, is now a certainty. Col.
F. Gardner, chief engineer for the At
lantic Coast Line, a week ago, inspect
ed the courses run, and work of the
survey; he also prospected the coun
try's topography. Evidently the lo
cality was satisfoctory, as the corps
were immediately returned to Sumter
for the purpose of establishing the
permanent line, that the construction
can at once be begun. The partial re
survey now being made, will not, we
thinl4 materially altar the course as
now staked, except the necessary devi
ation required to bring the road quite
near to Fulton X Roads, which it has
been deemed advisable to do. There
exists some "doubting Thomases" who
"don't believe that the railroad is coin
ing"-there are some people "who
don't believe"-anythinlg. One ting
we would advise them to "don't" be
lieve is-themselves. A gentleman
residing here, has received from Colo
nel Gardner and Mr. Bridges the most1
positive assurance of the genuineness
of the enterprise, and of the certainty
of speedy construction. If the most
orthodox of "don't believers," "don't
believe" this. - then for all we care
they can go to that sweet bye-and-bye'
where the unelaborate costume of the
Greek slave will prove abzundantly
warm, even in winter,- but wc di
egcS; par'don us, we intended to
wrte about uL.m '-i~road which will
Scertainly be of al)st inestimable ad
vantage, not only as a convenience
but as the means of developing the re
sources of the country; of opening to
it tm anewe of ind~e- encouragmne
emigration; augmenting the value of
land, and attracting capital and enter
prise. Encompassing as it will, one
of the most dense timber belts in the
State, the road will be of especial ben
efit to those owning an excess of tim
ber. The multifarious varieties of
valuable timber with which the San
tee swamp is so thickly studded, can
by this means find its way into the
markets of the world. The healthi
ness of the "Sand Hills" is proverbial,
and its merits will doubtless in time,
be so appreciated as will lead to the
"City of the Sand Hills" being the San
itarium where the valetudinarian from
the chilly and consumptive North can
be rejuvenated by breathing the air of
this dry and salubrious climate. In
the light of all these advantages to be
derived from this much needed rail
road, we feel that the people of Fulton
have cause to congratulate themselves
and while we are proud of our usual
dignified and sedate demeanor, and
dislike to appear too gushing, yet were
we to say that the contemplation of
this gigantic enterprise was accom
panied by the emotions of unconcern,
or marked with a spirit of sang froid
by our citizens, we feel that then we
should be guilty of the grievous sin for
which Avanias and Sapphira were
"removed," for we do anticipate with
gleesome hop-shipsome gladness that
on the next beautiful autumnal morn,
when the glorious god of day shall
peep o'er our hills of sand and

The ladies of St. Marks Episcopal
Church have organized a se,.ing soci

in demand, We learn that this socie

last Saturday afternoon, at the resid

It is said that dull times are not known
by the agents for the great publishing hoase
of George Stinson & Co., of Portland, Maine.
The reason of this exceptional success is
found in the fact that they always give the
public that which is keenly appreciated and
at prices that all can afford. At present we
understand, their agents are doing wonder
fully well on several new lines. They need
many more agents in all parts of the coun
try. Those who need profitable work should
apply at once. Women do as well as men.
Experience is not necessary, for MLessrs.
Stinson & Co. undertake to show all who areI
willing to work, not hard but earnestly, the
path to large success. It should be remem
bered that an agent can do a handsome bu
siness without being away from home over
night. Another advantage-it costs nothing
to give the business a trial, and an agent
cani devote all his time, or only his spare
moments to it. Stinson & Co. guarantee
grand success to all who engage and follow
simple and plain directions that they give.
