(OVERNoU IIAMPTON Will inake his
first appearance in Charleston on the
22nd of February, if his health per
G EN. DICK ANDEiisoN has not been
appointed Inspector of Phosphates,
but is a sub-inspector. Col. Thomas
Taylor still retains the inspectorship.
THE NEw YouK -erald says: "Pro
fessor Von Holst, of Freiburg, who
has been seit to this country by the
German Academy of Sciences to com
plte his great work on the United
States, will lecture at Steinway HILl,
next Wednesday evening, on Cal
houn. The Professor is regarded in
Europe as the best authority on
American constitutional history, and
his lecture is likely to be heard with
interest." When a person of such
eminence as Professor Von Hoist an
niouncos a lecture In New York on
Calhoun, it may indeed be hoped that
the South is beginning to get her
vindication in history.
Will it be Sammy?
.tolitical circles were stirred by the
announcement that a caucus of In
dianla Democrats had pronounced for
Tilden for President in 1880, thus
giving Hendricks thn go by. Investi
gation proves that it was nerely an
informal conversation among certain
hard-nioney legislators who thought
the ticket of 1876 1lie best for 1880.
Hendricks and Thurman feel better
since the Oxplanat-ion. Yet old
Sammy Is a ghost that will not down
at, anybody's bidding. As soon as all
the papers have buried him they have
to go to work to kill him again. If,
as prophesied, Tildon will run for
governor of New York this fall, and
be elected, it will be no idle boast
that he has twice rescued the State,
and can absolutely command her
thirty-flve votes; nor can we see how
the Domiocratic Convention can Pass
him by with this record. It may be
a nauseous pill, just as Grant is to
many Republicans, but the Demnocra
cy may have to swallow him never
theless. The South is bound to sup
port the candidate that can win, who
ever lie be, and if the North wants
Tilden again, wo cannot object.
People used to think that twenty
birds in twenty shots was good shoot
ing. Yet Captain Bogardus last week,
in New York, broke six thiousand
glas balls out of six thuousand( and
thirteenu, making a score of' five thou
sand six' hundred and eighty shots
before he mnissed a single ball. Th'le
balls were spr'iug from a Bogardhus
trap), which, it is said, has a vicious
way of shooting out the balls as bir'ds
fly. Blogardus expended six hundred
pounds of load in the matIch, and at
the end his shoulder was black and
blue1 and his fingers bleeding.
Another most interesting match is
just about complleted. A woman,
Madame Anderson, agedl fifty or
thereabouts, is walking against timie,
her task being to walk 2700 quarter
mnlecs in 2700 quar'ter hours, night
and day. As she has to walk a quar
ter of a mile at the beginning of ever'y
quarter of an hour, this means Cint
besides tramping 675 miles, shu cannot
sleep for a loauger period than about
ten minutes at a timo for twentv
eight days. No One would believe
that a human being, especially a
wvoman, could endure this, and yet by
this time the Madame has accom
plished lher task. She kept herself up
b)y chaffing with the thousands of
spectators, and singing anl occasional
song. Besides sutiering from blister
ed feet she has had nto trouble. Her'
performance was closely watched, to
see that no deception was pr'actised;
but she toed the mark every time,
nover starting three mninutos late.
Senator Merrimon withdrew from
the contest for Senator in North Caro

Merrimnon's honorable record in the

Destroying the Honor of the State,
From the Abbeville Medium we
clip the following;
In the course of it running conver
sation bel.weei a party of intelligent
gentlemen at Ilodges last Saturday a
v,ote was taken as to he i roper dis
position of the bonded debt, of ti
State, and every man of the company
VOtAd for absolite repudiation. This
little straw may be taken as an indi
cation othow the wind is 'blowii.
One of the voters said, "I vote for re
pudiation because I want to destroy
the honor and (le credit of the State
we liave no bu11sinless borroviig inoilNy
to rm the government Vor which pur
pose lie Stite is lerself, suffictiently
able without any extranieous aid."'
It is a settled fact inl every reflectiing
minld fht no 11mre act of a general
atssqmIIly ennti iakv a wrong riiit or
force (i people to pay t d(ebt they
never cmit.rac(ed and dlo not owe. It
is complicity with thieves to ask thei
to (10 so.
We tre in1ot So mucl Surprised at
ti vote as at the candor of the voter.
That wholesalc repudiationi would
most effectually tend "to destroy .1e
honor and the credit of time State" is
somctling about which we have no
doubt, but we had charitably believed
that tile repudiaitionists themselves
were not aware of the consequences
of their act. Tie point is not whieth
or the State ever wishes to borrow
again, but whether she intends to pay
what she has already been elnt.
If an indi vidual should boirrow mioney
to begin bmsiness, andl, after acqjuir
ing a competency, should1 refuse to
piay the 1loan on time grounid thant lie
could get along in future without aniy
assistaiice, aind wished to destroy his
credit to prevenit teimptation, lhe
would be acting~ precisely as5 some
Carolinians wish (lie State to act.
(WING fl.ACK ON H lKNDR1X,
Indiana Demnocrat., Hold a Caucus and
Throw Up Their Hats for Tildeni.
[(Spria to L( I.e P/ htiaddphia Ties.]
INDIA NAP'OIAs, January 9.-Indiana
politicial circles are consi deirably dis
turbed to-day over rep)orts of the cani
ens of about thirmty leading D)emnocrats
from all pairts of thme State, which took
place at the Bates llouse, and which
is known to have expressed decided1
preference for Trildeni over Hlendrix as
the next candidate for the pre.sidency.
It was freely asserted in the confe~r
ence that if Gover'nor TiIlden conld ex
p)laini satisfactorily the cipher tele
grams lie wvould be far more available
as a catndidate than the Iindiata fivor
ite. Governor' isndrix has met with
severe tinancial losses (durinig the past
few years and is not able to .furnish
the, sinews of war for a vigorous
national campaign, it was argued.
No dissent from these senthnenits was
oxpressedl in the caucus. Governor
Hendricks'flriendlsfeel much chagrined
at the rep)orts that have been circu
lated and call attention to the fact that
not a Democrat from Indianapolis was
present at the contference.
The election of Voorhoos to thme
United States Senate next week is
now believed to be assured. Thme ac
tion of the different caucuses leaves lit
tie doubt that hie will be chiosont on the
first or second ballot.
The funernal services over the re
mains of Mr. Schleicher, of Texas,
took place ini the hall of the3 House of
Xelpresentatives, on Monday afternoon,
at. three o'clock. Thise was, therefore,
the second ceremony of the kind with
in a few davs. Mr. Schileicher makes
thme inthi member of the Foerty-fifth
Congress who has died dining the
sesion, his eight predecessors being
Senator Bogy aiid Morton, and Rep
resentatives Leonard, Welsh, Quinn,
Williams, D)ouglass and HIartridge.
This sad recordt is made all the more
impressive by reports that Repre

DnSPEiATE ENCOUNTER WITH A
BURLAR.-obert H. Murphy, a
grocer, on Grand River avenue, De
troit, suspecting that burglars had been
attempting to enter his store, on
Sunday night concealed himself and
awaited developmnents. lie soon
heard the burglar enter the rear door,
by means of a falso key, when a strug
glo ensued. Murphy soized an iron
wedge and struck the burglar several
blows upon iis head, felling him to
the floor, but the fellow regainod his
foot, and, choking Murphy injtojiIseI
sibility, escaped. A i hour later a man
applied at the police station for modi
cal attention, s.,:-ing he had been way
laid and beaten b) robbers. Murphy,
regmiing co ncIlo usness, proceeded to
the same station house, where lie
identified the party as the burglar.
The latter admitted the ract, and said
the fear lest he should die unloss his
wounds were dressed prompted him to
go to the station house.
Hunter, the murderer was hanged
at Philadelphia on Friday. Ile was
completely prostrated, and had to be
carried to the place of execut.ion.
The hanging was bunglingly . per
formed. The rope vither had too
much slack or gave way so much that
it barely lifted the culprit from the
floor, when lie fell back, and was
caught by tie assistants. The sheriff
seized time rope and hoisted I Hunter
into the air, and lie was hung only by
a nuilbor of persons holding to the
rope during the whole time inm which
he was suspended.
