Our esteemed contemporary, the lime», which has frequently been led into error by placing too much re liance upon the statements of untruth ful correspondents, speaks of D. H. Chamberlain—who pretends to be Governor of South Carolina, although returns made by bis own poltical friends show that Hampton was elec ted—as * citizen who fought a long and bitter fight against corruption in his own party, and as an official who has wrung from his most inveterate political enemies the highest praise fer integrity,skill, and courage. And the Springfield Republican holds up Cham berlain as an earnest reformer wham tho Democrats ought to bave suppor ted for Governor, but who finally com promised with the corrupt Ring of the Republican party in South Carolina in order to secure the nomination for Governor. Now, it is a matter of record that Chamberlain was the legal adviser and the master spirit ot tbe worst of the Rings which have plundered South Carolina, and that a Republican Leg islature passed a resolution ordering tbe proper law officer of the Govern ment to institute criminal proceedings against him for malfeasance in office. As for his pretended Teform policy, which was a trick to win Democratic votes, the falsehood of his professions has so fr.quently been exposed in these columnsthat it is unnecessary to repeat the story. The Republican's account ot the rea sons which led Chamberlain to make terms with the men whom he had so bitterly denounced as thieves, though correct as far as it goes, is incomplete. Previous to the convention which re nominated Chamberlain for Governor, Duan and Elliott, two of his most ac tive enemies, had obtained certain let ters written by him, and Elliott pub licly announced during one of the sessions that he had in his possession papers which would send the Gover nor to the penitentiary. The latter had carried matters with a high hand tip to this point,but the threat brought him to terms. An interview was ar ranged, and Chamberlain was inform ed that be could have the nomination for Governor, and his friend Cardoza ihatvfor Treasurer, provided the no minations for other State offices were given to certain other persons. Beeiag that he was at the mercy of his adver saries. Chamberlain surrendered upon the spot, and that is how it happens that he went into the recent canvass.— JV. I'. Sun. ^HE WASHINGTON OUTRAGE CASE. It was yesterday ascertained that the man, E. C. Curtis, who so foully out raged a young girl at the National hotel at Washington, registered at the American hotel, corner of Franklin and Calvert streets, in this city,on the 15th inst., as F. A. Fink, Savannah, Ga. He sto days and suddenly left without notice. He returned on the 19th and settled hia bill. He asked Mr. Karr, the clerk, to check bis baggage to Charleston, S. C-, which was done, and he left the hotel apparently for tbe purpose of taking the train South. He did not fol low his baggage, however, but pro ceeded to Barnum's and there carried out hia late villainous act. Tha bag gage will be intercepted and a clue possibly obtained in that way. The polico authorities have notified all the principal cities to be on the look out for the man. The police of Balti more are firmly convinced of the en tire truth of the girl's statements. Her mental and physical condition on reaching her friend's house in this city furnished alto irrefutable evidence of the fearful outrage she bad undergone — Balt. Gazette. there for several LABOR CONFLICTS AND THE CONSEQUENCES. Philadelphia, March 29. —The gen eral manager of' the Reading Railroad Company haa issued a circular to the locomotive engineers employed on that road, the substance of which is con tained in the following extract: "In view of the recent high-handed interference with the business of rail, road companies, and tbe serious and semetimes fatal consequences that have resulted to tbe innocent travel ling public from the unjustifiable and arbitrary conduct of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers upon other railroads, it has been deemed unadvia able to retain in the employment of this company any one who is a mem her of that organization. If you are in such membership you will becalltd upon in a day or two to decide whe ther you desire to remain in the em ployment with the regulation requiring you to withdraw from the association referred to. It is not the desire of.the company to deprive its employees of any of the beneficial or life insurance features of the Brotherhood of Lo comotive Engineers without offering in their stead greater benefits of a similar character, and it is therefore proposed by tbe company to establish and endow a life and accident insur ance fund, out of which all engineers, upon payment of a monthly sum less than previously paid, will receive greater benefits than those heretofore derived from the Brotherhood of Lo comotive Engineers." FRAUDS IN THE PHILADELPHIA NAVY YARD. Washington, March 26, —There are evidences ot activity at the Navy De partment which indicate that Secre tary Thompson wants to know more about tbe whereabouts cf a certain $500,000, paid on account ot the sale of tbe old Navy Yard at Philadelphia, and that to penetrate the mystery which surround! it be intends to over beul the papers in tbe case that are on file at the department. THE COLORADO CASE. A PCZZMITO QUESTION AS TO THE LEGA LITY OF AN ELECTION. The New York Tribune publishes the following^from Washington:— "The Colorado case, whioh Clerk Adams has under consideration with a view of determining which name he shall put on the roll, does not turn upon tbe question whether Colorado is a State in the Union or not. It seems that as yet no law has been passed in that State providing for the election of a Representative for the next Con gress. The Enabling act directed a vote at the October election for a mem ber of the House of Rspresentatlves to fill out the unexpired term of the Dele gate. Both parties voted for their candidates for both the unexpired and the coming long term, but as no law P rovided for filling the latter term, the lemocrats proceeded at the Novem ber election, and as they claim in ac cordance with the law of the United States, to choose a Representative. The question with Mr. Adams is which of the elections for the lung term, if either is legal. " A Drunken Husband Devours a Por tion or Hta wife's Face. New Yobk, March 20.— Daniel Mc Caffrey and his wife, Bridget, who live at 157 West Twenty-sixth street, haa a quarrel yesterday. Thomas F. Flynn, a sou of Mrs. McCafferey by a former husband, heard his mother scream "Murder!" two or three times. He rau to her apartments, burst open the door and found his mother lying in bed and his stepfather actually de vouring her face. He pulled him away and a terrible sight met his gaze. Tbe lower part of bis mother's nose had been bitten off; also a piece of her ear and a portion of her right thumb. Her face and body were covered with blood and she was almost insensible. Offi cer Nilson was called in and arrested Daniel. He acted like one entirely bereft of reason when, brought to the station house, and the opinion of the Police Sergeant was that he was in sane. From investigation it was'dis covered that the prisoner had been drinking for over two weeks. Mrs. McCaffrey was taken to St. Luke's Hospital, and her husband committed to await the result of her injuries. A ring, having its headquarters in San Francisco and ils agents in Wash ington, is making extraordinary efforts to arouse public sentiment against the Mormon people of Utah. The pur pose is to make things bo hot for them that they will abandon the Territory, with its silver mines, its cultivated farms, and its comfortable cities, so that they can be seized upon by the Ring. It is evident that there is but little sympathy with any such move* ment. Outside of China, and other semi-civilized countries, it is not cus tomary to punish the innocent with the guilty.

A great scandal in Shangai, China, has been caused by public charges made by the United Stales consul gen eral against Geo. F.

The documents in the case have been sent to Washington for investigation. Governor Nicholls yesterday ap pointed and his Senate confirmed Pinchback as a membei of the Louis iana Board of Education.

Benjamin Noyes was committed to the county jail in Newark. New Jer sey, yesterday, in default of $20,000 bail.

The political situation would seem to be sufficiently exciting, but compared with the turbulence of the last three months, it is a dead calm, unruffled by an episode. True we have in our midst two claimants for theGovernor's chair in the province of South Carolina, whom our minority administration treats In a way that would be interesting and origi nal, if it had not been made old and odi ous by the last administration. Where is there law, precedent, or reason, for the legal governor af a sovereign state to be summoned before a fraudulent president to show cause why he should not yield to a pretender from Massachusetts,whoee only strength is the bayonets illegally sent there by tbe ex-presidential curse? It isfutile in politics as in love to think of "what might have been;" but, how natur ally and sythmically would all those jarring discords have adjusted themselves under a legally elected president, untram meled by "Returning Boards, Electoral Commissions, or leagues with Packard, Wells andEliza Pinkston;a president who could be indifferent to the cleaving of Blaine's tongue in the defense of thieves and carpet-baggers; a president who would be under no obligations to make Morton boundless the dispenser of to give the sons of the ensign of the bloody shirt rich sinecures. We hear much now a days of civil ser vice reform—on paper. Each cabinet of ficer is printing and publiahing a list cf rules which is an embodyment of sound principles is as faultless as a political platform, and as empty and hypocritical as Garfield. Any one at all acquanted with the diagnosis of the civil service malady, knows that its cure must be commenced with a purge. For the body politic to hope for health and eupepsia with all the vile accummulation of the lost administration rankling in its bow els and preying on its vitals gives reason to fear that the disease is affecting the head. The last to come to the front with hia little hoard of civil service maxims has been John Sherman, Mr. Hayes' Secretary of the Treasury, Wendell Phillips, Mr. Shermans' fellow parti san, compresses his political biography into the words: he went into the Sen ate poor, and he left it rich. A biog rapher with a genius for details could have said something more on the sub ject than Ibis, but it will do. Mr. Sherman goes further on paper than Mr. Key went. Like Mr. McCrary and Mr. Shurz, he says no removals with out cause, and no promotions without merit. But, while Mr. Key says a Re publican shall hava preference. My. Sherman says that politics will not be considered in civil service appoint ments, and, in order that his reform may have illustration, he appoints, forthwith, a friend of Mr. Horton, a* attachée of an Indianapolis paper, upon tbe syndicate; in other words, sends him on a European tour at Govern ment expense. A much bettor rule than "no removals without cause and no promotions without merit" would be: "there is cause for general remo val." . or Ex-Senator Powell Clayton 'of Ar kansas, one oitheex.moral idea states men bade a final adieu to Washington last night in apoculiar and character istic, but unsenatorial, way. He dis puted the bill of his landlord at the congressional hotel when be bad be On boarding with his family. Words fallowed and thy ex-Sonator jumped over the bar, and taking a bot tle, bruised tbe fare qf the landlord considerably, and iibmedlstely left the hotel with his family* The landlord swore out a warrant, for assault with intent to kill, and placed it In the hands of officers who followed Clayton to the depot when they found him in a Pull man car with his family and surroun ded by a largo number of friends. Tbe warrant was served upon him, but he replied that, in order to answer it he would have to remain in the city over night, which he did not desire to do. Mr. Clayton.^ came out upon the plat form ot tbe car, with his friends, who claimed for him that being a United States Senator, be could not be arres ted and showed a disposition to resist the officers it' they attempted to take him by force. At this point the train started, and Mr. Clayton, who had stepped off the car, was carried on board and the train proceeded on its journey, such was the manner of exit of a Senator only less notorious and despicable than Pattersen and Spen cer. C. A, S. Evidence showing the guilt ol Brigham Young in connection with the Mountain-Meadows massacre 1s beginning to accumulate. Young became tne head of tbe church after the death of Joe Smith in Nauvoo,Ill., and so must have been directly con cerned in the organization and direc tion of tbe order of Danites, whoae business it wa9 to commit the homi cides required by the church. Follow ing Lee's confession implieating Y ouug there comes now a copy ef the order for the destruction ot the emi grant party, signed by the commander of the Mormon legion and given upon the authority of Young, There is but one thing for the authorities to do in this case, and the way is very plain. A bill ts collect a tax on whisky and beer by means of "an instrument something like a car-bell punch," passed tho Virginia Legislature yester day. It is to be put up iu every bar room in the ritate. The tax per drink on alcoholic liquors is 2. cents,and on beer i a cent.
