There is a general belief, p however, that the Comrn mission has re ported to the President that a compro- . mise It hardly possible, and want to khow what to do; and that it has been' advised in answer thereto that if it can. t not arrange some terms within the next b t oirty4.lght hours, to pack up, leave the city, and come to Washington and re- b lior to this eost. the beet sources of information here a am to the Elect that Packard will not yield to any oompromlst which does lnot squarely recognise his legal exist nems as the fExecutive of the State, nor will Nicholls yield a particle on this polnt, Both are firm, and hence a con 4olidation of the Legislatures is next to Smpossible, because neither will listen to any overtures which will put to risk his respective gubernatorial title, It is believed also that the Commission will declde to-morrow that its mission is a tfltless one, and will lqpBv New Or leans Monday night for Washington. Preldent.rayes will then bring mat tlte to a focus very soon. Those who speak for him and who assume to know whereof they speak, say that he will not directly recognise the claims of ether candidate, but will direct the troops to be withdrawn, If Packard, without them ann without inciting riot. and disturbanoeeran maintain his gov ernment and enforce his authority by eommanding the respeot of the courts and the support of the people, well and good. If he cannot, he mu t go to the wall, With the troops withdrawn, the situ . ,tion will come to just this, that either Nioholls or Packard will force Federal reoonltlon, when it is developed which title the people sustain as the valid one. If Nioholls collects the taxes and Pack ard cannot, the fullness of the former's title would be demonstrated, as would also the weakness of the latter. It is among the probabilities of next week that the troops will be withdrawn, and thatt by Saturday night next both elaimants will be standing solely on the strength of what their cause respective. ly is worth. In the meanwhile the President will see to it that the peace is maintained; the troops will be kept near enough to the beligerents to prevent any forcible demonstration, but will not he stationed as a bodyguard to the officers represent leg either of the dual governments. -With such a policy pursued, the imh piesslon and hope Is that the complioa .tons will settle themselves. Both 4lmants can defend their title as best, ey may, but one or the other will een have to give way by reason of sheer exhaustion and lack of support. BUvLL. MOIREHOUSE.

Demort. fr.] o WAatlnotow, April 13, 1871. ho After all the woes of 8outh Iarolina, and at the alose of her long season of horrors, there was anJ element of the ludicrous hljected into the Anal to chapter of her deliverance, which cannot be en?. th fered to go unremarked without, as Burke used to say, "eclipsing some part, of the gayety of he nations." I refer to the antics of that peculiar wi Individual, te onUN PAttangeSi who, as if the inetltntlna of earpet-baggery re- he qnired a floIhilng touch of disrepute to make it w' the most utterly hateful abortion of deformity m that ever draggy d out miserable existence upon the face of the earth, is known as "senator," and credited to ' Honth Carolina." It is net aoy present purpose to speak harshly l of John. To speak harshly of him at title tme be would be to waste kike upon the cnaress of a du dead dog, with no other result than to Infect the hi surronading atmosphere with bad odors, wh'oh lt may be avoided by simply leaving t'ie aforesaid oareass to decompose in pseae. The enrrent supposition respecting John is, that he is silply vile in every impulse of his nature and simply vicious in every fibre of his being. But thise esti- an mate Is one-sided. Hills character presents someus variety of traits, and is therefore not altogether uninteresting. Ills career to the merely asmual observer anu doubtedly presents the aspect of a low, dull monot ny of perfoetly level baseness; but the r olos observer soon ascertaine that this seeming monotony of baseness is diverslfled by osloadonal chasms of Idiocy which, while they may not des poll the landscape of its general hideousness, at f least relieve its samenese. Thus the good-na- h tared observer of John's career is kept perpetu- b ally in doubt as to whether his sots should be rated crimes and ascribed to depravity of soul, or errors, and charged up to feebleness of mind; b and while there may be no doubt as to the advisa bility of his immn diate incarceration, there Is a most perplexing question as to whether his place of confinement ought in justice to be a peniten tiary or, In mercy and oharity, an asylumrn fr Idiots.i It should be remitkod, however, that while John's violonsness of soul has been clearly appa rent these many years, his feelenrss of mtid has been strikingly developed only of late. Yutt see, A it does not regntre a powerful mind for thie ope ration of • icking ap kea t s'u log as the victim is securely held down by ablt.bodisd pale of the thief. Thus, while (irant, or those who operated In lis name, heldl Hntth Carolin pinned to the earth, John was enabled to pick her pockets withb © out betraying any foeblenose of intolleel. It was an avocation requ'ring, under thie liroumstaurtes, neither a itritness, skill nor n nrage; nothing was required, in faot, but mere greed ad ad sl t pie vacuity of morals, willth bot of Whloch Jobhn is ealnowed to the extent of genius. 11 ,wever, any trained monkey, or, perhaps, an edutcated how, could have performed the operation with the same success under the same circumstances. IBut the general public, looking on from a dil tance, and intent only upon the manipulations of i the pickpocket, lost sight of the military garrot ere who were really the chief contributors to the success of the operation, imagined that John was dolong an artistic job of light-fingered work, a and straightway dignified him with the reputas A tion of a great, bold and skillful thief. 'f Now the institution of oarpt-baggery has, In A deed, furnished forth some rare specimens of the 0 genus thief. ltunning over the list- on long to, recapitulate--we discover many names deserv ing of real eminence as thieves ; mostly sneak thieves, it is true, but still eminent as to th)eir I kind. But Patterson is not one of them. Hie lacks even that low order of intellectual develop s ment reqnistte to greatness in the sienco of theft, and he o uld never have obtained the rep utation lie has but for the peculiar circumstances t Wwhich have aided him, and which would have ena. bled evenn in liot or a dumb brute to steel as much as he has, and with as little effort of mind or y body. As to the other phluses of John', reputa I- tion for example, HIS 1R1 n'UTA1IOlN AN A ,IAR, they rest upon an equally precarious basis. Ills lies are, like his larcenies, bungling and mala I droit, and usnually betray the inanity of the mind that promulgated them much more strikingly than turpitude of the soul that gave them birth. SHe puts himself on paper one day and then rails himself a liar the next by way of recantation, Swith a cang frid that is too amusing to admiD of a the disgust usual ly excited by seach ltrformanos. am EAntSla stPl.o1rr As A roaozu Aln) PEtnoia were characterized by the same crudeness. On one oausion, in a civil suit where Aleck MoOlure was his attorney, John won the cue and got a verdict by perjury and the subornation thereof. Then, when the clerk of the court was making np the judgment, John was so elated with the result that he oouldn't keep to himself the baseness by which It had been brought about. To his feeble mind the winning of that suit by perjury and f subornation of the same was something to boast * of, and so he boasted of it to MoOlure, has attor Sney. The latter heard him through and then d told him he must go to the judge, ask permission I-to waive judgment and offer to settle or compro I mise the case without reference to the verdicto of n.the jury. ud John demurred to this advice. 't "Well then," said Mo'lnre, "you d-d scoun Sdrel, if you will not do that, I will go into open il court as your attorney, waive jndgment myself, and state the methods by whichb you obtained a verdict in your favor; and then, harlang washed my hands of your c.oe, I will present yen to the ne rand Jury I' This threat brought John to his senses and be obeyed McClure's command. Now then, when it is further statei that it was one of his own rela tives whom John thus sought to defrand through perjury, and the success of which operation he deemed a matter for exultation, you oan frm some idea of the quilnt combination of vil'iony and idiocy which serves him in lien of a obhrao ter. But odd and ladrous as his elie erlrscapades have been, M fll arshrt of sitsasahngesess ssage that when John first began to get through his thick skull the idea that Chamberlain was going to be left to his fate by Hayes, hie immediately sought to make his peace with Hampton. The latter consented to an interview with Patterson more out of a sense of grim humor than from any other motive, and when Patterson astne Hampton enjoyed the scene in its ludicrous sapedts as keenly as did any of the lookers.on. Patterson made pledges of fealty, to which Hampton listened sunaely, and which he accepted with a queer sort by of half-amused, half-pitiful expression upon his P° good notured faoe-much as he mlght have s oepted sstiranses of dstibgutished consideration from a burglar who had been captured is his w hostie, and who was now in the custodey P of the police on his way to jail. John was anxious to make his peace with Hamp- Pt ton complete, and it occurred to his feeble mind at that it would help him in Hampton's estimation to b denounce hlis late associate, Chamberlali, which tr he forthwith proceeded to do, John's intervew w with Hampton was not long. The ktar, that af- w ternoon, speaking of it, remarked with a grave humor peynliarly its own, that "the interview w was very cordial on both sides, and lasted as to much as fifteen m notes I" ae Aoording to the best informntion that I can dI obtain, i,,nN't ".etirrv To wAMPTron" 1 lased about twenty-four hours; but as that is longer th n he was ever bef re known to medi. tate anl honest association, we should give him I du' credit for ib. But the next day he got a ,aong ti his old aseulettes-Kellogg, Bill Chandler, a fel low namqd Painter, whio is to journalism what w John Is to p'lities, and the balance of that crew- 0 andl they told Jolhn that he had acted the d--n fool. ' John didn't knew but he had. However, it w amounted to nothing, because he had made no w pledges that he could not easily go baok on. tM Then these fellows told John that he had been a too fast; that the whole situati in had changed; b that Chamberl in had gote to New York to tmake J arrasngements to raise funds for the purpose of ti resitting Hampton to the bitter end, and that the sympathies of the whole North would be with a Chamberlain I Thereupon, as sorn as Chambetlsin returned from New York,John hastened to assure him that t he must take no notice of what had passed between himself and Hampton, and that he (John) had never had the remotest idea of deserting hio (Chamberlain). I presume Chain. I; berlain-who at least knows what constitutes manhood and who, whatever he may be, is not an I idiot like Joho-received the latter's "pledgee of fealty" in much the same spirit as Hampton had done a few days earlier. r In the meantime, however, the younger Pat- I le tern, whose name is "S1," and who is currently a supposed to be a son of John, had been going about among the newspaper correspondents, stating that he hld the original of AN ADDiRna To Tor, PsoPl9 or Tun VNITEr sTATrS,I, nsisned by ltampton, Butler, Conner and one or two other Conservativ., and by his father, John, O. O(. lowen andt others, on the part of the "Rie Spublicans" of touth Carolina. "$i" came to mo Saturday night and told me ha had a man at wok copying that letter and would be able to furnish copies In the various news ew ureaux the next day. Unt it did not come to hand. I don'tknow that there is any such letter in existence, or that is there ever was one; for I have nothing but im Patterson's word for it, whih], is not genorally conelder d legal tender for a fact. But if the letter ever did exist, and if Hampton intinsled it to young Patterson for publicat on, as the lat ter told me, then it was suppresamd here at the of instance o John, who, between the signing and i- the copying of it, had effected one of his light be nin changes of politial base. But, If it had an been publ shed, John would not have been em. k, barraseed, because he could easily have an * nounced to-day that he was a liar yesterday and had a new set of views ready for to.morrow-and n- evorybody would have believed him, so far as he yesterday was coacerned. to Thus, having suppressed that lotter-suppos. V- ing for the sake of argument that 8i Patterson's k word for it idlinated its existence-John setout tr to ada the nigger Elliott in lme solt OtIg To RAs184 FUNDs to enable the " Itopub!ioans of Hion h Carolina" of to "resist the taxpaytr's rebellion." By the way, notici as you go along, how admirably that a phase of Eiliott's chtins In with the Itst of the A comedy--tis roaring farce enthtled The Oarpet. ch baggers' Last Fraud, or the Drllveranue of Mouth or Carolina. The Dill ()handler and Painter aforesaid now put into John's wooden head the brilliant notion that it would be a nton thing to go up to the While House and solicit a contribution to that a- fund of EIlnott's from Hayes himself. So John id immediately went out upon the street and told Ily everybody hie met-or at least everybldv who th. would permit him to speak to them in putblio hli bow he intended too o up t the White Hor.n and )0, IiULDOZE flAIEs. of if course Bayese was apprised of It, rid so' Swhen John went up to the Executive ion elou the next day, THU PRESIDZNT WAN " VRYI BOI." and declined to see him. At last 12 o'clow k came and with it the news that 0hamberialo's pr ,oosed "resttance" had flashed in the pan and that the "talpayers' rebel:ion" was a success. John glanced hurriedly over the afternoon paper which contained the news, and then underwent another metamorphosis. "Oham-berlain was ad-d sneak.: Hie courage had all oozed out of him as soon as he got to Columbia. Haees had sold out the men who elected him and was a 0-4 d-d -- -. And he (John) would live todanesoon his (Hayes') grave. He would vote to admit Buthlr to the Senate. He would do all he could to give the Benate to the Democrats"-except resign; he was not quite mad enough for that. And so on for quantity. But the theme is tiresome. One's sides get sore between laughing at John's buf fooJery and cursing his baseness. I should sup pose that Calhoun would turn in his tomb and kick his cofu all to pieces at the degradation of hi suooeauion. But John will soon vanish. Nothing is left of him but a bad smell now, and the atmosthere will soon absorb that. A. 0. BUELL. J. B. We·ker, D. D. 8., 180 Delord street. A choice assortment of ready made alts now open as M. L.

Ftalurday always has been a good day for races, and that this is a feet recoglentd and appreiated Ii by those who have charge of meetings in this portion of the country, is evidenced by the feat n that Saturday is always chosen as the last day, tl It so happened that the Inclemency of the 1 weather on Thursday last necessitated the post. ponement of the races set down for that day an. til Saturday, and, ase a ntnral consequence, the postponement of the brushes for that to-day to another. Monday was chosen, and Monday will a be the fifth and last, and the mbet Interoeting trials of speed, aco.rOing to the general opinion, will take plane, and close the meeting. Buat, not withstanding, the peoullit attraotveness of SatIr. day as a race day, coupled with the pleareast weather, dr w to the Fair Grounds a large at tendanoe, exceeding in number perhaps the andl- enee of Tuesday last, considered to date the big day of the meeting. The attendance iocluded many ladice, so many, in fact, that the Grand trand was allbat crowded. On arriving on the grounds there was some disappointment exparienoed by the gentlemen who freq'tent the members' stand and the qgar. ter stretch to find that TnIl TRA(K was not in a condition equal to their expectat ins of what it would be. It was believed that the stilf breer,ee of Fri. dlay, with the occaMlonal glimpses of sennhine which accompnlied them, and the bright san which shone on it yesterday, would dry it, and that by the hour fixed for the opening rsee it would be in, good condition. But in the beet places it was heavy, and in the worst the jockeys reported it was slushy. The state of the track, however, had very little, if say, effect on the The Poole at Hawkins', for although there was onalidera ble talk of old stagers, eot., the bcakers of the favorite, as they asd, put np their money on the speed sc well ,e on bhe wind of their nags, and the favorites in the sales held their own. The backers of the favorites, in two out of the three races sold on thetrack were, however, "ont in their osaiulations," as the report of the races will show. or The Vlrst. are a Woodland, Port Leonard, Jim Hinton and Biloxl were entered. J Woodland was the frst choice by long odds, selling at the rate of $1011 to $40 for Biloxl, see ond choice; Jim Hinton and Port Leonard selling J at #$2 and $211 r, speetively. T'his was one of the rteon in which the favor ites were the losers, an "old stager " winning. The race was a hurdle hea iloap, two miles over eight hurdles, for all ages, and the bell tno saddle up for it was tapped at abon, 8:110 o'olock, ad a few molments after, in response to the tap callitn " to monOt," the horses and their riders appeared on the track. There was a good start made on the first trial, Bilsýxi taking the le.d j *at after passtng the string. Ile lead over the first hurdle and by the quarter pe.t, followel by' Woodland, Ilnton ho ding thlrd place and Leonard bringing up the rear. They passed the b'fa and the three.quarter post In tire same p,sitlosn, taking the hurdles as they aeme to( them. Wh1en the home stretch was reached, and the fourth hurdle was in view, there was a stnuggle for the first caance at it, but there was no change In position when it was g ne over althcflgh Woolalsnd had crept up on the leader, HIrnton was pushing t him, and Leonard was doling his .bet to rake third plaes. Under whip and spur they came down Ihe road inlog between the fourth hurdle I and the strlng. I tuDItxa Tlx sRTrRIr t they went, Blloit still in the lead, Woodland t right behinud him, and litton and Piert Lusonrrd togetlher. Tbis was the flrst mile, and on the I first quarter of the second mile Port Leonard panbet up onto the third place; Biloti still kept t the lead, and Woodland was ,o cond. Between this quarter and the second mile post Leonard I Iettled down to work, went by Woodland, ad I Sthen by Biloni, and the poet was paused in the following order: Leonard1, Bilo1t, Woodland, I Hlinton. Hinton pushed Woodland over the course, but I when the three-quarter post was passed there I was no, charge in the order, but on the home stretch ulnton went ahead and was considered good for second place at least, if not for first, I under the sring, but, tufor nuately, he struck r the lset hIurrdle and tlhrew hiis rider, and F.ort tleonardl ("the old stager") led under the string, Woodisnd, who had passed 15lollo on tile h me stretbh, second, and liloxi fourth. Time-4;li. The Mecond Race * was a sellng ra e, one mile and a ruarler, and i for it therl were the following entrrs: Humbug, Maria Barnes, lort Leonard, Kiiburn and Cora Linn. This was the one race in the three sold at the I pools in which the favorite son, Kilburn being first choice. Port Leonard, on saeconnt of bhis exploits in the first race, solil second, and Maria Barnes was pur I ohased as third. The other two sold about even. 1 After the usual preliminary tapping of the bell, the horses were brought up to the starting point (the three-.qnrter po.t), and after three false star got of. From the stand it was impossible Sto say which took the lead, but as the grove of trees Just on the home-atretch tarn was passed it was seen that KUburn was abead and the others bunched. Barnes moved away from the bunhb and took the second place, lHumbug and IAne were hot after, together, and Leonard took the position behind them. They passed under the string in the same order, tuambog if anything, if any I change is worthy of record, in advance of IAnn.
