WA TNOTON, March 18.-Unless
r. Cha iberlain withdraws volun~
tarily in South Carolina, Governor
I-:anmptoin will, whenever the ar
ran4etnents of the Federal' authori
tie's are coipleted, proceed against
hin im the courts of the State and
under a statute, which, curiously
enough, was enactediby the Republi
cans in 1868, to eiiible them to put
out' some Democratic i incumbent.
This statute provides for the sun.s
ipmry eviotion of any perdon intrud
ug nni self into a public office by a
warya t issued by a Circuit Judge.
The party evicted under such alwar
rant is authorized by the statute to
assert his claim or pretensions in
the court if he wishes, but he must
give way first and at once on the
issue and pretension. of the warrant
to the officer elected.
By the following letter addressed
to the President two days ago it will
be seen that Governor Hampton has
given a guarantee that if the troops
are withdrawn no violence will occur
or be allowed, but that he will pro

His Eecellency R?. I3. Hayes,
P'residcut of the United States.
Sin : A publication in the Nation
a l Republican of this date, to tile
effect that your Excellency has been
assured that, if the troops5 are with
drawn'i from the State House at
Columbia, Governor Hampton will
m Ike no effort to disporso s D. H
O.immberlatin, by civil proceas or
otherwise, rendern it proper that I
should inform your Excellency that
Governor Hamptonrecogizes no
tas quo as to this issue which he
isi under obligations to respet, ex
cept in so f. r as it is his bounden
duty to minltain the public peace,
and assert his authority only by
legal methods. He is not appealing
to your Excellency to determine
that 1h0 is the Governor of South
Carolina, but as the Governor of the
State he asks that tile Federal troops
shall be withdrawni from the State
House, to the end that the process
of the courts may be effectually in
voked to determine thme usurped
possession of the records of the
Executive Department, now with.
held from him in defiance of the
conStitution and laws of the State.
Whenever the civil authority is no

military, Governor Hampton w~illI
proeced by due process of lawv to
terminate that wrongful p)ossession
now and heretofore upheld by the
armed forces of the United States.
In reference to tihe proposoed

by -vii tue of his election b~y

PRINTINo AND JOURNALISM IN CnTNA.
-A Chinese printing office is a
greater curiosity than one would
think. The alphabet numbers away
into the thousands, and a cap and a
lower-case goes all the way round
the inside of a two-story building,
and half way up to the roof. It
takes an -apprentice twenty years to
learn the case, and then he has to
usea step-ladder to get at the
higher branches. A case was pied
one in Canton, and it took five days
to remove the type from the form of
foxemnan. They punctuate wherever
they can drop a dot, without regard
to .the prospective. When the
editor coins a word the printer
whittles out a new character with
his. j:iclS knife. The journeymen
set by the square foot, and .Bever
belong to a union. Theydo their
press work by hand, and use boxing
gioves to ink the type. They have
one paper in the empire a thousand
years bid, and the bound volumes
half filU a pagoda. It is rumored
that Bonnett 'has started to edit
that venerable paper. The editors'
head is responsible for all items
published in the paper, andis taken
off whenever an article of news is
published. Not an editor has been
beheaded in China for the last five
hundred years. The Chinese have
just invented a twenty -five cylinder
presB for printing tea chests, with
which they are able to print one a
Next to victory the Radicals want
time ; time to survey the field, st
let the strategic points, organize
their forces, and prepare for a'des
perate fight. They have not the
slightest intention of yielding. They
have committed themselves too
thoroughly for that. Delay is their
only salvation. It means desti-uc
tion for Hayeug. It is said that,
should the newv arrangement go into
effect, "Nichodlli will surely be re
cognized by nextL fall." If Nicholls
be not rc>gmized by next fall, he
probably never will be. The ad
ministrgltion is playing with fire, and
tuless very .:reful will be badly
burned. If Hayes really intends to
fullill his pledges in regard to the
South-we believe he does -he must
say to Blaine and Morton, "Get thee
behind me, Satan," and then go
straight at his wvork and finish it.
The longer he p~ostpones it the
harder- that wvork will be, and it is
already hard enough to tax his back
bone to t1.e utmost.--St. Louis Re...
MoRE ABOUT Mas. HAYEs.-"Mi-s.
Hayes never wears decollege dresses,
and several of the ladies invited to
to the State dinner on Saturday,
being told in advance of her p~refer
ences, in compliment to. her, wQrg
high waists. Mrs. Grant, however,
not knowing this, had her arms and
shoulders uncovered. Her toilet
was white silk, briocaded in bouquets
of colored flowers. Mrs. Hayes
wore camel-tinted silk, garnished
with lace and fringe. Her hair was
plainly combed over her .aer and
gathered in a knot at the back with
a comub. She wore no ornaments."
