AUGUSTA. FRIDAY MORNING, NOV. 4,1870. SOUTH CAROLINA. We have already given an account of some of the outrages perpetrated in South Carolina by the defeated rebel democracy after election. The republicans carried the State by 30,000 majority, also carry ing with them man}' whites who never voted the republican ticket before, and would have carried more but for the ter rible threats of tlio rebels and fear ol their vengeance, which was has been in some cases fearfully executed. Two members of the last Legislature are among the as sassinated. Of the deeds which have been committed, the following account which we find in an exchange, from a corres pondent in Columbia, gives an example: “The most inhuman, brutal outrages that ever disgraced civilization are perpetrated here in the name of Democracy. I was last night invited into the office of one of the State officers to witness a sight that chilled my blood with horror. The room was large and dark, only a single candle being lighted to enable us to see more closely the objects we were called upon to inspect. On one side ot the room, ranged side by side, and divested of all the clothing of the upper part of the body, sat two stalwart men and out woman, their backs literally cut into shreds by the lash of their tormentors. I had read of the horrors of Uncle Tom and dreamed of the brutal Legree, but it was an image of fancy that I never could persuade myself was pos sible to exist as a tact. Yet last night I had the evidence of nty own senses, and like Thomas, who desired to put his fingers into the gaping wounds, I am prepared to douht no longer. These poor people were dragged from their homes at dead of night, carried a distance, and then stripped of their clothing and lashed and beaten until their persecutors became tired of such hellish work. The woman’s back was terribly mutilated and torn, and I never desire to witness such a sight again. Their only offence, so far as known, appears to be that they were Republicans, one of them having been selected as a manager at one of the polling places. They know all the men who committed the outrage, but when ar rested and brought before a magi;late tor pre liminary examination every one of them is able to prove an alibi by a score of witnesses if need be. Trials here aic a farce, and jus tice is nothing but a mockery. The civil au thorities are powerless to protect these pour inoffensive people, and unless the U. S. Gov ernment can enforce the Fifteenth and other amendments to the Constitution the colored people may just as well be remanded at once to the tender mercies of the fiends incarnate. The names of these people are Clem ISowden, Minerva, his wife, and Daniel Lipscomb. The Governor, United States Senator Rob ertson, Congressman lloge, and several oth ers saw these poor creatures and heard their story. It was enough to melt the heart of an anchorite. An old gray-haired white man. another of the election managers, was treated in the same manner, and subjected to other indignities too indecent to mention. And yet the very tnen who commit these outrages boast of their “superior intelligence,” their culture and refinement, and, strange to say, they find plenty of supporters among the peo ple of the North.” POLITICAL. The Albany Express calls attention to the fact that in a period of thirty-three years the State of New York has never been held by the same political party more than four consecutiv e years. The Mobile liegister mixes Massachusetts politics up fearfully. It makes that “old bowling dervish Wendell Phillips” the radical candidate for Governor. It is said that there are about 15,000 in dictments agninst radicals in New York city, and that Old Tammany holds these indict ments over the heads of his political serviles to compell them to do his dirty and criminal work at the polls. The Democrats of St. Louis, at one plunge, have gone head and ears into the most de moralizing mire that they ever fiung at the radicals. They have accepted into the party a negro who deserted the radical party, and have even consented to run him for Congress. It only remains to show that the “nigger” is a carpet-bagger now to snup the foundation of all the self-respect that the Missouri demo crats have ever professed to have.—New York Herald. A seeker for the privilege of American citi zenship in New Y’ork the other day inquired of a gentleman in City llall Park as to where he could get his naturalization papers. Ik ing told that the time had expired during which they could be obtained to be of use at the next election, he retorted, “Well, thin I'll vote without ’em as I did last year. I was a thinking, maybe wid this Fideral law it would be convaynant to have 'em ; hut, sure, Tammany will see me through.” The young Democracy of New York have decided in committee to support the democrat ic State ticket, hut to fight Tammany on local issues. Stewart has retired from the sixth district and left the field to Greeley to run against “Sunset Cox.” Trouble is feared in the election at I'.dti uiore and the troops at Fort McHenry are ordered to be in readiness in case of riot. The Hon. J. J. Hinds of Alabama brings neVs to Washington that the republican ticket will he elected by at least JO.00) majority ; that Major Norris, the Republican candidate for Congress in the Third District, whose elec tion has been heretofore considered doubtful, is now almost ceitain of success; that the only districts in the State which the 1 Jcntocrats claim are the Fifth and Sixth ; but hopes are entertained for Mr. Masterson, the Republi can candidate in the Sixtli District; that the Republican majority in the gitdature will be at least 20 on joint ballot, which insures the election of a Republican Senator in Sena tor Warner** place; and that Renjamiu Tur ner, the colored nominee in the Mobile Dis ♦ triet, will be elected by uver 1,000 majority, notwithstanding thi* defection of certain lie publicans, who oppose negro candidates. THE SEW I) lAH OSD FIELDS. 'J'iie newly discovered diamond fields in Africa, at the Cape of Good Hope, are oc cupying the attention ol news gatherers and tilling columns of the newspapers. The bare suggestion that diamonds are to iie had only for tin: picking of them up from the dirt, where their brightness lias been entombed for ages, is exciting, and thousands will probably ru>h to the new diggings without counting the cost, or considering whether, the statements put forth are reliable or not. The Tribune in an editorial has made a summary of the facts so far reported about the new fields from which we copy: j It is about four years since the first dia mond was found in South Africa, 'i his was i a stone estimated at the time to be worth about $2,500. In the course of a year five or six more were picked up by natives and sold to colonists for a mere trifle. In the third year a fine stone of 83 1-2 carats, now known as "The Star of South Africa,” was barter, d away to a cattle dealer, and alter passing through several hands finally sold for £24, 000. This was but a trifle compared with such famous gems as the Begem diamond, worth a million of dollars, or the famous jewel belonging to the Sultan of Mntan in Borneo, valued at three millions and a half; but it was quite enough to cause a rush ot em igration from Natal and t ape Town, and it is reported that from 1,500 to 2,000 persons are now engaged in the search. The diamond field is represented as cover ing an area of no less than 1,000 square miles, principally in the Orange Biver Free State, i hut stretching on the one side into the Trans vaal Bcpuhlic, and on the other into the Brit ish Cape Colony. The definition includes the , most remote points at which there are rumors of any discoveries; but the excitement ot the search is concentrated in a tract a tew miles in extent on both sides of the Vaal Biver. near its junction with the Orange, about MOh miles from Cape Town. The jurisdiction over the land is in dispute between several native chiefs and the two Boer republics ot Transvaal and the Orange Free State, while Dutch missionaries also claim , territorial proprietorship in certain pans of the field, and exact irom miners a royally of one-quar tet of the find. These disputes give the mi ners little concern, for they have organized a republic of their own, elected a provisional government, and made preparations to de clare themselves independent. Thus far they seem to have lived peaceably and orderly— being probably too busy to make trouble. The wildest stories, of course, are circulat ed respecting the value of the discoveries; hut thus tar no trustworthy statistics have been published. The latest advices trout the Cape report rich developments at the l’nicl diggings, where 74 diamonds have been touud in one week, and £1 0U0paid to the missiona ry us royally. Supposing the royalty m have been honestly paid (which we grant is sup posing a good deal), we shall have $20,000 for the value of seventy-four diamonds—an average ot $270 a piece. There are nearly one thousand men at work in this district.how ever, and they seem to have worked for a long while with only moderate luck. .The stroke of good luca over which the South African papers are now rejoicing lias yielded the fortunate miners only $20 u piece. Tin Cape Argus conjectures that the value of all the diamonds unearthed since the discovery of the Star of South Africa must be about £100,000, that the yield at present is about 120 or 150 stones a week. Conjectures as to the value of tile product are ot little worth, lor they must rest only or. the hearsay testi mony of inexperienced witnesses. The dig gings are remote and hard to reach. Compar atively few stones therefore find their way at once to market, and we have only the guesses of immigration agents, forwarders, and colo nial journalists as to the treasures which the fortunate adventurers mny have put away in their pockets, waiting a convenient opportu nity to sell. We only know that nearly ali the stones thus tar seen have been very small —most of them worth only a few dollars ; and none—not even the Star of South Africa—-can be said to possets exceptional brilliancy. The search, however, lias been conducted ill a ran dom, superficial manner, by merely scraping the surlace toil and washing or sifting tin gravel in which the gems are found; so that though the result has not yet been sufficiently briliant to tempt emigration from distant shores, it is by no means unlikely that titor, careful aid systematic methods of digging will prove Sauth Africa to be one ot the rich est diamond-lands on the globe.

On the 20th of October, the day on which the Prussians entered Metz and occupied the citadel never before passed by a hostile foot since Guise d clouded it against Charles the Fifth of Germany, all the houses in the city were closed.

A Dutchman the other day, reading an ac count of a meeting, came to the words, 4‘the meeting then dissolved.” He could not de fine the meaning of the latter, so he relerred to his dictionary, and felt satisfied.

Rockland, Oct. 31, 1670. To the Editor of the Daily Journal: I have never seen any thing equal to the j vigor with which the Rockland hack-drivers j prosecute their business, i have traveled j some—am quite familiar with tin* style of] hack-drivers in various parts ol the world: have seen some enterprise displayed by them in New York, San Francisco and St. Louis; have run the gun ni let of a double file of them, with a good sized valise in my hand, many a time, and come out without a scratch; have j had some experience in a Sacramento three card-monte house; have been through a whole block of New York Jew dealers in ready made c lothing; and know something of the active business habits of a New York Peter Funtk auction shop. But for smartness and dash in their employment, commend me to the Rockland liack-men. I embarked in Portland for Koekland in the steamer Kiclunond last Friday night, with my wife and little boy. Arrived at Koekland about four o'clock the next morning. Beside ourselves, there was but one other* passenger for Koekland—an old lady. The boat having touched the wharf, we started for the gang way to step ashore—wife on one arm and lead ing my boy by the other. As we came out of the saloon i was instantly seized by three stout men. w hile another seized my Toy, and several others my wife, and a great many oth ers surrounded us in the darkness, all shout ing, and screaming, and pulling and hauling, ' in a jargon and confusion truly terrific. “What means this mob,” I shouted—“what have I done to deserve this treatment,” as I was pulled away from my wife arid boy. Louder and fiercer were the yells, and I now distinguished a shriek of “free ride io the .1- House /" and another superhuman scream of “/o /.- House, free ride and free rum /” In vain I hung back, bawling till I was hoarse that 1 did not want to go to either the A- House or the Z- House; my resist ance w as useless in the brawny hands of three Koekland hack-drivers, and my voice was drowned in the demoniac yelling of the eight, eon hack-men who had come for us four pas sengers, and was bound to have u«—dead or alive—whole or in pieces. They meant busi- j ness. I was unarmed, anu my wile anu the j old lady could render me no assistance. “My trunk !’’ I shouted, “let me see to my trunk.” At this two other hack-men dashed through the crowd that surrounded me, and thrust their hands iido my pockets. I shouted for the police, supposing them to lie pick-pockets “Your baggage check, we want your check,’ and they got it in less time than it takes me to tell it, but not in season to avoid a pair of black eyes which one of them got, from a finely delivered blow by one of the men hav ing me in charge, lie evidently considered me his game; no npp< sition house could pick me with impunity. I was then boosted into a coach and a guard was stationed at each door to keep me lroru escaping. I looked out into the darkness and shouted for my wife anti hoy. All my screaming was useless. The crowd of enterprising hack-men were surging up with yells and cries to which “pandemoniums let loose” must have been techie, pummelling each other with fists and whip-stocks. Above the din I heard a woman's shrill cry. As the crowd approached ntarer I discerned the old lady home upon the shoulders of several of the vigilant hack-men ot thu “A-House,’’ wliilst the equally enterprising drivers of the “Z- House" were making a dashing charge j for her re-capture. They had already taken j her bonnet, traveling bag, parasol, shawl, and ; all the other loose articles of clothing she had on, and were row making a gallant dish for the body. The perseverance and business like promptness with which both sides man aged the allair was surprising, but the sope- 1 j-ior agility of the “Z- House" men tri- j umpheil. The passenger was torn from the j other tide, thrown inton hut k and away it j dashed at lightning speed into the darkness. I have not heard from the old* lady since, al though I have carefully scanned the obituary notices of all the papers of this vicinity. The coach in which 1 was confined was next attacked, and my rescue attempted by the op position, and I am certain I was only saved by the fleetness of the horses which -lashed away, and in their course crushed a light carriage for the “Z—~ House," and ran over one of their drivers. 1 was landed at the “A House.” The driver generously refused any fare. Five very polite gentlemen waited up on me out of the carriage, urging me strongly to enter the house, breakfast and hoots black ed gratia, hut ascertaining that my wife and child were not there, 1 peremptorily refused their hospitality, and went forth in search of them. My wife I heard from during the day. She had been hauled to tho “Z-House,” but refusing to stop at that hotel without her husband and boy, although they offered to pay her three dollars for so doing, the enter prising driver had gone to St. George with her for fear she would go to the “A House.” My boy I have not yet found, but it is thought he may be in Waldoboro' or Bath, as both places are included in the route of some of these drivers, and the passage en tirely free provided the passenger is taken from the steamboat This is the way the Rockland hack-men do business. Their vigilance is unsurpassed. Their industry will doubtless be rewarded, but it is difficult for n stranger like me to see where the reward comes in. It is a vigorous stylo ot enterprise, but it lias its little draw backs to tiie traveler. It is pleasant to sec honest industry pushed, but the zeal of a Rockland hack-man is too ardent for the real enjoyment of the passenger who happens to have any inclination of his own as to what lie would like to do with himself and his wife and children. In fact, the Rockland hack men are too obliging—too accommodating. 1 have no doubt they w ill prosper. Such ener gy will have its reward. Such generosity will be repaid, and when they can no longer afford to run free hacks, I have no doubt the traveling public will be willing to pay them a reasonable fare. Count S. Fondest. Domestic Nctos. The Argus says that on Tuesday morning the porgie steamer Victoria, ow ned by David S. Willis of Mystic, Connecticut, which had been lying in Portland harbor under attach ment, in charge of a keeper, Mr. Simeon Walker of Cape Elizabeth, since the 23d of September, was taken out of port and disap peared in a very quiet way. The steamer was seized for debt lor stores, fuel, &c., incurred in carrying on these operations, which are said to have proved quite unremunerative. Proper measures were at once taken by the authorities for the retaking of the steamer,and Wednesday night deputy Sheriff Adams left fur Poston, which port she was reported as hav ing arrived at. The sheep trade is carried on extensively in the Aroostook country. T. M. liichardson, says tlu^Sunrise. passed through Presque Isle recently with 300 sheep which he had col lected in Maysville and vicinity. They were very large and beautiful sheep. The next day Culumbus llayford, of Maysville, passed through Presque Isle with 340 sheep and sev eral head of cattle collected in the northern part of the county. The Lewiston Journal says that the prac tice of eating arsenic to whiten the complex ion, which has become so common among women of a certain class in our large cities, has reached Lewiston: and the records oj sales of all the apothecaries—as required by law in case of poisons—show that many young ladies are constant puchasers and eaters of this deadly poison. The money-order business is steadily in creasing at the Bangor Post Oflice. During the month ot September ltlO money orders were sold, amounting to §3,422 82, and or ders were paid to the amount of So,350.54. The office received on deposit from other of fices, .$4,598, and remitted §2,290 during the above uamcd month. The schooner Dreadnaught, Henry E. Wil lard, master, of Cape Elizabeth, has landed the past season 1392 bbls. of mackerel, and the receipts for the same amount to $13,900. She made ten trips in six months, and had a crew of eleven men. R. S. Ambrose, lor many years a highly es teemed merchant of Lewiston, died at eleven o'clock Wednesday night, ot paralysis of the heart. He had been ill for some time, but Wednesday was more comfortable and re covery was confidently anticipated. The Whig says that Independence rock is growing beautitully less under the vigorous assaults of the contractors. About 70 tons of rock have been blasted oil and put on shore. .Mr. Joseph Emerson, well known to the citizens of Bath as a sweet singer, recently died in New York. His remains are to be brought to Bath for interment. Rev. S. Bowker, formerly of Bluchill, and more recently of Wells, lias received and ac cepted a call from the Congregational Church of Raymond, N. II. The ladies of the Baptist Society nt Surry, have repaired and painted their parsonage— not done the lalior but paid the bills. Smelts still continue to be sent from Bath to the Boston market, but the supply is far below the demand. THE BRIDAL CHAMBER.
