Vemassk, S. C, April 8. The night's
events did not disturb the President's rest,
to he said, and he was up on time for a 9
o'clock breakfast. Tho train for Savannah
had been kept waiting at Charleston
Junction for tho Picsident. Tho day
opened warm, and, by comparison with
yesterday, was sultry. Tho barren fields
or scrub-growth of yesterday wero succeeded
by stately groves of pine and abundance
of blossoms and Southern moss hanging
in gray bunches from the trees. Indications
of an approach to tropical regions
began to appear in tho tendency of tho
foliage to the tops of the trees, and in tho
peculiar color and width of leaf of under-grout

BiMvrux. April 8. Tl ojnvstery surrounding
the brut'il minder of Mrs. Ellai'a lton,
at the door of her home in Walcrtun, Sunday
evening, March IS, has been discovered.
Fiazlor Cunluff, a negro
waiter, was arretted on account
of information given by two of
his companions1, Clark anil Smith, that
CiiulitT had confessed to them that he murdered
Mrs. Carlton, and that the ill-fated
woman's husband had hired him for ?2V)
to do the job. Clark is very sick, and
says he cannot die with the secret on
his mind, lie says: "Some time nbout
Match 4 Cuulill told me that Carlton,
whom we both knew, had otTered
him $260 to do tlm job for him. Tho
p'an was to o to Carlton's place, bind him,
and thin chloroform and smother the oilier
party. The night befoie tho
murder he was nwiiy.,Siunlay afternoon
lie told me that he had ' got the money.
Going to the house about dark, Cunlilf "aid,
he tied one end of a ball of string to his
wrist nnd went to the door, Carlton being
on the opposite side of the street holding
the other end of tho string so as
to signal him if anyone should
come. The job was patistactorily accomplished.
The ball of string was rolled up,
and both men canto back to the city.
March 30 Cunlilftold me and Tony Smith
that ho was going to meet Carlton and get
$100. When he ennio back ho said he
missed seeing Cai lton."
Cunlitl' maintains a dogged silence. Mo
has a bad record, and was suspected of tho

dealer, ho was ptruck on tho head with a

Washinuton, April 8. Under the present
law small country Postmasters, whose
sales of stamp? do not amount to moro
than ?200 per annum, retnln sixty per
cent, of the value of stamps cane d as
their salary. Tho reduction of letter post-ago
to two cents would of cuurso
materially reduco the compensation of
those small Postmasters, wero they
to rccoive only the satuo pctcentuge.
But tho new law provides that where the
sale of ttamps do not exceed $200 per annum,
tho Postmaster shall after October I
bo allowed to retain one hundred per cent,
of tho stamps cancelled.
Judge Kla, Sixth Auditor of the Post-office
Dopartmont, said to-day that this
would cut off the entire revenue from
about per cent, of all the
in tho country. In tho Now
England and Middlo States the offices
at which the sales of stamps nggiogato
morethan enough to pay the postmasters'
salaries averago about ouo in throe; in tho
Western States, about one in four, and in
tho South, about one in eight. Besides the
great reduction in revenue, the operation of
the new law will entail a great deal of
additional labor on tho postolhce department.
At present many small offices retain
sixty per cent, of the receipts
and pay the othor forty per cent,
to a carrier, who delivers tho mall
to and from tho depots. After October 1
theso small offices will retain all the receipts,
ond the carriers will have to bo paid
by warrant from tho postoffico department.
Much othor additional work now distributed
aniontr country postnmstors will also
be transfoned to the department, and it is
belioved that the deficiency for tho first
few yoars will be much .greater than was
at first expected.

Philadelphia, April 8. The largost and
bet uppo.ntcd steam jacht that has ever
been designed for ocean navigation bus
been launched by Win. Crawf & Sons, of
this city. Decks are not yet pi inked, and
no m.ist, bowspnt or spir gives promise of
the canvas she will and her holds
are not yet occupied by the engines or
machinery which nro to furnish her propelling
power. Still her lines are visible,
and competent judges of marine architecture
foictcll for her moro buoyant battling
with tempestuous soas than the Namouiia,
theretofore tho most complete specimen
of steam pleasuro craft construction.
A notablo contrast between tho two
steamers may be sutnmarizod as lhiglish
nnd American models. The Namoiina
has tho s..iaic stern affected by Fnglish
builders, while tho men
think will run inoie comtortablv hemic a
dangerous sea by reason of her elliptical '
.tern. From knight-head to taflrnil slio
is 230 feet it inches; upon deck her length
is 225 feet; on water line, 213 feet 3 inches;
extreino beam, 20 leet 1 inches,
moulded depth amidships, 10 feet; load
liuo draught, 13 feet. The upper deck of
tho new v.iclit is flush, and lor its whole
length is unbioken save by u narrow house
that extends for eighty feet of its tpaco
amidships, by a steam capstan windlass
forward, by tho nece?.saiy conipanionways
and skylights to givo access and light
to tho quarters below, and by lo.ir
handsome ventilator tops to supply
air to the engine and fire rooms,
hl.o will have two sets of boat davits
on each ide. Upon t lie port side and
just Itirwuid of tho mnininat will be hung
u sie.un launch, thirty-two feet long; abntt
her, iu fact well on the quarter, on the
same side, is to be hung the dingy, or
woi king-boat, eighteen fret long. On the
siarboard side, ubieast of the steam
launch, is a six-oared cutter, thirty-two
feet long, and abaft her and abreast of the
dingy is to bo a whale-boat, United States
pattern, thirty-eight feot long, which will
row live oars and which Mr. Gould will use
lor his gig.
The keel of tho Atnbuita, which was
laid iJcci'iubor 10 last, is of the best
iion, eight inches iu depth and two
niches thick. At the forefoot and stem it
is increased in thickness to two and
inches, the other dimensions remaining
the Mime. The Morn-post is heavier,
being four niches by eight, and tho
is the sumo iu dimension. The frames
.ire all of tho best quality of angle iron,
tlnec and one-half by three inches, and
extend iu one piece from the keel to the
lop of tho ruil, tho portion above tho
stringers being, of course, lighter, and that
above tho plank-sheer forming tho bulwark
stanchions. Kach frame has a
i wo and one-half by two and
her 'tween decks.
Owing to the depth of the yacht, the
hold pioper has ample space for the storage
of luggago and stores. The permanent
furniture of the lower deok is to bo composed
of iuluid maple, butternut, cedar,
California laurel, sycamore and other na

Its forward part is to bo a most elegant
apartment, upholstered elaborately for ue
us a social hall or smoking room. The
steam-drum, of course, is enclosed within it.
nnd a largo space just aim ft this is to be
used as a kitchen, the galley stovepipe
coming up and entering the
smoke-stuck, thus disposing of all the
kitchen odors, which, from tho position of
tho cooking on Mr. Dennett's
yacht, has been found very objectionable.
It will communicate with the lower deck
by a companion-way and a passuge along
tho port sido will lead to the itewurd'a pantry,
the position of which will be shown
hereafter. Abaft this is tho engine-room,
and iu the extreme afterpart of this house
is to bo tho room for tho captain of the

A visit to Algiers disclosed tho fact that

Locfsr Gkove, Ohanue Co., Va., April -1.
I havo read in your paper of the very
strange steps taken by J. G. Bigelow and
his ctToifs to get at my money, which good(
kind and generous people gave to mo for
tho benefit of myself nnd dear little baby.
I havo never employed Bigelow to attend to
any business for me, and he hii3 never rendered
me any service either, and I want
the public to know this. Ho pretends to
have done so much for my husband, but I
never employed him. nnd 1 have no money
for Bigelow; and I hnpo the court will
throw aside his unjust claim. My poor
husband is still in prison, and Bigelow
should he ashamed to try to take from rna
money given to mo and my child for our
support. Bigelow hns never done any good
for my husband, nnd he enn not havo any
of tho money with my consent. Respectfully,
Bettie K. Mason.

St. I. ii is, April 8. Officer Tom
of th" Cent i ul District, to-day, telegraphed
Chief Campbell I mm Chicago, that
ho hud I'lmilos Sanders, the murdered of
lllicer Charles Print, and would leave for
;it. to-night or to-morrow morning.
The telegram announcing the arrest of
Siih.lci iu Chicago, was teeeivod yestonbiy
at the four Coitus. Detectives llallornu
and Ktiguii wore standing on Randolph
und I'liiukliit stieets yosiordny
when a loan who looked n if ho might be
wanted 1 the police, walked up and
wanted to avoid the officer's gaze.
Ho was stopped and taken to the Central
Station, l.ioiiteu.iut Shea, who was at
tJio station, looked at him closely, and
loteiTing to a photograph in the for-
eigu book, said : You're Charles
Sanders who killed Officer Print, in Oc-
tober, 1870." Tho prisoner replied without
hesitation: You've called tho turn, pant.
It was not iu October, it was in June, '70."
Tlicrocoid verified tho prisoner's statement.
Ho was thou questioned about the
homicide and his wanderings, and said
that he killed Print, iu self defense He
had been iu a house of illfame on Popular
street, and wns drinking heavily. Iu the
evening lie went to his sistoi's house, and
while theio became involved iu a row with
.Mr. Martin, his sister's lutsbuiid, during
which Officer Prii.'.z eamo up. Tho
officer began using his club inflicting
a wound on tho prisoner's head,
traces of which are still visible iu a scar.
Tho olhcer then drew his lovolvcr, whioh
Sandeis wrcncliod fiom his grasp arid used
with fatal effect. After killing tho otHcor
ho crossed to Kast Carondolet und wulkcd
to Alton, whoro ho boarded a train for Chicago.
Ho remained there for several
wosks, and finally obtained employment
on tho propeller Collingwood, on whioh ho
wont to Canada. Ho plied betwoon Ontario
and F.rie, Pa., and was enrployod for
several months in a woolon mill in Massachusetts.
Ho roturned to Chicngo and
found employment as fireman on ong of tho
lake tugs, where- he roinaincd until arrested.
Sanders' account of tho murder as
givon to tho Chicago police is far different
from that given at tho time of the killing.
Sanders wrs woll known to tho police' as a
dosporato character, and was suspected of
being impucuteu in several tuefts, while he
was convictcu oi an assault on a man -with
