JUTRNKI)—ONE HOJt«E J'KRJSUF.S IN
THE 1LAMKS.
East night about i 1 o'clock, an alarm
of fire sounded from the City Hall, and
the different engine houses. The alarm
was occasioned by a bright light in the
northern part of the city. The light was
occasioned by the burning of the large
stone and frame stable belonging to .lames
Riddle, Son & Co., situated on Riddle's
Road just this side of their cotton mills.
At the time the fire broke out there was
in the stable three mules, two horses and
•ne pony.
All of the live stock were rescued from
the building with the exception of the
pony which perished in the liâmes. The
building was entirely consumed, together
with all the hay, carriages, sleighs and
great many other articles. The fire
as first discovered by Leander F. Rid
dle, who was on his way home from this
city. He immediately had the «alarm
whistje on their mills sounded which
notified the fire department in this city.
Although the Fire Department were
soon on the ground notwithstanding they
had to drivo through mud nearly hub
deep. After arriving they were unable
to get water and so had to abandon all
efforts to subdue tho flames. The origin
of the fire is supposed to be from an
oendiary. The loss will probably be be
tween $2000 «and $.1000.

AN IMPOßTANT LETTER.
From tlio Balt. Gazette.
In 1870, during the administration
of Governor Scot*, in 8outh Carolina,
there were iasued fraudulent state
bonds to the amount of nearly six
millions, which have since bien repu
diated and declared void by the Leg
islature. At that time Chamberlain
was attorney general of the slate, and
was one of three persons constituting
the state board of finance, and which,
with a man named Kimpton, had en
tire control of the emission and sale of
state bonds. The seal of the state
was taken to New York, aad a large
issue of bonds were sealed and sold,
the proceeds of which did not go in.
to the state treasury. This transac
tion is conjectured to have had a great
deal to do with Chamberlain's rise
from poverty to afflueace, and indeed
four hundred thousand dollars has
been named us Chamberlain's share of
the swag. It will be recollected that
at llie state republican convention of
South Carolina which nominated
Chamberlain there was quite a dra
matic scene between Elliot and Cham
herlain. There had been a breach be
tween the two, and Chamberlaiu bad
denounced Elliott as a public crimi
nal, and had declared that the salva
tion of the Republican party of South
Carolina lay in unloading such
as he. Elliott vowed vengeance, and
it was announced that at the
tion be would explode a mine which
would demolish Chamberlain. Elliott
made a speech in which be
ed his ability to ruin Chamberlain,
but that "he had been approached by
friends of Governor Chamberlain and
advised not to make known what he
had intended io." He had also been
warned that what he might say would
do no good, "as Governor Chamber
lain lias sevenly-six votes Hint would
stand by him if lie was proven guilty
of Inrceny." lie made a great liourish
of some documents he had, but lie
did not enter into details, and the
scene wound up with a reconciliation
between the two, and both were put
upon the republican ticket.
The Charleston News and Courier has
gotten hold of a copy of a letter held
by Plliott at that time, and its con
tents are interesting. It is as follows :
Kei-tembek. 23.* 1870 .—Dear P.. Yours of
the 21st came to me this evening. 1 was
glad, indeed, to hear from you, aad es
pecially that die hnances now promise to
weather the storm. I have no doubt It was
well to defer the "Statement" until October
There is no special news here. For a lew
days we have had fears of an outbreak in
Laurens and Newberry, but we heard yes
terday that the danger is over. About ttie
United N ta tes senatorship I don't know
what to say. /know very welt that It. is, in
rvry way, better for me to reniait i where 1
far the rest of my term. Still, I am called al
ready, and my position Is Just this : If my
friends wish me to become a candidate for

The P. to whom this letter was ad
dressed is State Treasurer Parker, who
perpetrated such colossal frauds upon
the slate. K. is lviinplon, the finan
cial »gent who uegutiated the fraudu

nership with those persons that Cham
herlain was able to say that it was in

where he was. The salary of a United
States senator would have been poor
compensation for tbeloss of "the com
missions" or percentages, according
to which the spnils were divided. It
is stated that further documentary
evidence muy be forthcoming which
will show Chamberlain up in uis true

From Philadelphia Press.
Every person who lias baen in the
Canitol at. Washington
al Legislature i9 in session in that me
tropolis of the Republic, or who has at
tended the legislative session of any
State in the Union, must have been
struck with the fact that the debating
took place and the business was done in
the presence of a large number of audi
tors and spectators of both sexes, for
whom ample accomodation had b
provided. There are galleries for strang
ers in in every legislative chamber, na
tional or local. The architect who
planning one of these Capitols, should
omit to provide such accommodation for
the public would be justly regarded «as an
incapable blocKhead. In England, by
the ancient custom of Parliament, and
by orders of both houses, strangers are
not to be admitted while the houses are
sitting. This is to carry out the idea that
the business of P.arliainent shall be pri
vately transacted, and if any one com
plain of such a privacy or public affairs,
the ready answeer is, "Tho newspaper
reports of tho proceedings convey to the
world a generally accurate idea of what
has been said and done"—there is no
official publication of anything.

He claims that the status of the Hayes

CONSPIRACY.

TO DO ANVTHINO FOR MONET.
Washington, Eebruary 1.— Maddox
made a clean breast to-day before the
Committee on Powers and Privileges of
the House. Eich detail of the plot to
sell the stolen votes in the hands of the
Louisiana Returning Board for $1,000,(Km
was given to the committee, and the
cross-examination by Judge Lawrence
upon data suggested by Wilson, aided
by Chandler and supplied by telegraphic
dispatches from prominent Republicans
absent from the city, failed to shake his
testimony.
The strongest evidence is yet to come.
Governor Kellogg said, in conversation
this evening, that the case against the
Republicans would be hopeless only when
all the members of the Returning Board
were implicated therein. Evidence in
complete proof of this fact will be sub
mitted before the committee, if not to
morrow, at an earl; day. In a recent dep
osition Kenner claimed that he had
kept the minntes of the executive ses
sion of the hoard. This claim upon tiie
production of his minutes, was found
be without foundation. Memoranda cl
each session had and of other facts in
connection with the meetings of the Re
turning Board were kept in detail by a
subordinate in the employ of the board.
These memoranda are now in possession
of the committee. They corroborate the
evidence presented by Maddox,—the
statement made by Lutletleld and th
position taken by Pickett, while impli
cate each member of the board in fraud
ulent schemes practised, and throw light
upon other alterations more serious in
their character than the forgery perpe ■
trated in the Vernon returns.
