WW thank the author for the very
acceptable present of the first nuuilxr
of " ltutter's Political Quarterly, de
voted to unearthing the sanctimoni
ous political rats of the South, exjios
ing Kadkal ist-allawags and carpet
baggers, biographical sketches of the
reconstruction desrructionists; with
pieasing pictures behind the scenes in
the reconstruction conspiracy ; with a
refreshing history of the Radiiail
frauds ' and ' dead-beats ' in the
South, and their connection with the
Government tinkers at Washington."
If the programme is fully carried out,
this quarterly will have a brilliant
run. Some of its delineations will be
recognized hereabouts as quite graphic
and just. Indeed, Rutter paints well,
and is on the road to distinction.
Take, for example, the following par
agraphs relating to our late iameutod
chief:
This reverend scamp writing from
Trenlon, June S a 1 mils that he re
ceived money from Mutter, bat aaya the
services were rendered purely out of sym
pathy for hitu. odd sort of sympathy
and "mercenary kindness that, which n

ret nreiice experiences such Christian sym
pathy I t Maw Ruttor, would it not bo a
more con.V.ntout and C'hriHliau way of
slewing ii by paying the aforesaid cash
back? We know entire families of Radi
cal philanthropists who are afflicted with
the same Christian sympathy as his rev -oreiic:
luit they never pay auvlhiiie.
His rvcreuce, we reuiemhcr, came near
confiscating for his own use the I'nion
street Methodist I urojial chun-Ii, South,
because it was not draped in mourning
for thn death of l'resident Lincoln as
promptly as he thought it should he; and
the wriler, learning if his intentions,
purchased the goods with which to drape
the church, and hail it done in time to
prevent his designs. And we are afraid
that his reverence is too great a fool to ue-
eome it nrst-ciass Knave. He is s 'aiii;
enough to devise villainy of a high order

ent temper of our people, be the part
of wisdom; yet we by no means in
icntl to deire-ate au uprising of the
people of this country against the
luture aggressions of the taction now
domiaaat at Yuahingtoa. On the
contrary it is our deliberate convic
tiea than all frth?r aggressions and
usurpations of Congress, should be
checked, if it can be done in no other
way, by the mighty voice of a popu
lar revolution. We speak these words
advisedly. They embody the doc
trines for the vindication of which the
founders of the American u
pulic staked their fortunes and
their lives, and it becomes the people
in every State to cling to them now,
despite the menaces of the faction
which wields the purse and sword of
the nation and controLs the corrupt
currents flowine from what, a short
time siuce, was our grunt fountain of
justice. What is loyalty to-day is a
barren lie, and true patriotism means
stern resistance to the unlawful acts
ol the powers that be. Is there never
more to he opsnition to arbitrary
rule ? Is there never more to be a
limit to subservient submission '.'
Mast amendments to the Constitution
procured by force and fraud be ac
cepted as law ? Are the majority of
the citizens of this country to retrain
heueefcHth from having a voice iti its
affairs? Is the ltadical faction to I
suffered to obliterate the Constitu
tion altogether and forever ami to
trample at will upon the rights of
two-thirds of the people ? Have the
Legislatures of three-fourths of the
States voluntarily and of their
own free will given in their adher
ence to the new-fangled notions of
Phillips and Sumner of liecvher ami
Greeley? If they have then we
miirht, iierhaits, fold our hands and
"accept the situation." If they have,
we mic-ht also raise the cry of "No
discussion of dead issues," and accept
the a mend men is as "accomplished
facts." llut what is the truth in re
gard to the matter." How anil by
what means were the amendment
adopted? 15y force and by fraud! by
the exercise ot unlawful jtower on the
part of Congress and the administra
tion by open and unblushiug bri
bery! It would seem so, if two of the
most tyrannical measures with which
we are aeiiuainted are to be coolly
cla-'sed among the "dead issues" by
ivmocrats and accepted as "facts"
beyond and behind which there is to
tie no lmiuirv and to right winch the
only truly liberty-loving party does
not feel inclined. e believe the
time to protest is now. Now or never
those who would stop tliis mad Kadi
cal revolution must act. This year
the people must reconstruct Oongn ss,
or rather substitute a better one. No
tyrant has ever more manifestly
abused the power confided to him for
the public good than has Uongress
uoue has ever rendered himself mure
justly amenable to popular indigna
tion and punishment than the leaders
of the ltadical faction.
They have overthrown the public
laws and time-honored chartered in
stitutions. They have cruelly op
pressed and wronged thousands of in
nocent men. They have, by trickery
and violence, forced upon the people
of various States rulers whom the lat
ter justly and cordially despise. They
have wrested political power lroiuthc
bands of the white man, and con
ferred it in large measure upon the
negro. They construct and overturn
State Governments by their own des
potic edicts, regardless of the
will or right of the governed. They
are the masters of this land, and if
they be not now called to account, the
American freeman must soon sink
into the political serf. We do not be
lieve in admitting anything that Is
not true in recognizing anytliing that
is not right; and the sooner the peo
ple of this country set their feces
sternly against the treason and fraud
which culminated in the adoption of
the Fourteenth and Fifteenth amend
ments and oppose the amendments as
the fruits of a base and ignoble crime
against the Constitution and laws of
our country, the better it will be for
thent and lor the world. Bridyeporl

This, of course, is gross error. The
amendments recently adopted are not
acts of Congress, but are now parts of the
fundamental constitution of the country,
incorporated into it by the votes of three
fourths of the .states, in accordance with the
provision of the instrument itself.
Whatever view may have prevailed as to
the propriety of their adoption (the
Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments;
. that has lieen settled by the votes of the Leg
islatures of three fourths of the States.
They have boen officially proclaimed, and
held by the various departments of the

ties, in the Congress, can affect them.
They are now beyond the jurisdiction of

wisely in declining to run a tilt against
accomplished facts. Nay. in recogiczing

and in uniting upon a plat farm of honesty
and good government lor the deliverance

WTe appreciate fully, we think, the
condition of affeirs in Bouth Carolina
and the etlorts which our friends there
are making to oust the scaliawags and
ettrpet-baggers, who, in conjunction
with the negroes, have done so much
during the past few years to bring re
proach upon itepubiican institutions
and oppress and discourage the peo
ple: but we never see admissions in a
is inocrutic journal like those above
quoted, without feeling that we ought
to raise our voice against them. YY e
do so in this case reluctantly, since
the lourier heretofore has been a
f m and steadfast advocate of princi
ple a defender of the right at all
times and under all circumstances.
But what are the fact? Is it true that
the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amend
ments to the Constitution have been
laufu'iy adopted ?
This the (courier knows as well
as we, and we are sony to see
that it is willing to ignore all this and
admit substantially, that the amend
ments are valid, or if not valid are to
be recognized as such as a matter of
lHilicy by the Democratic partv of
tioulh Carolina.
We will agree that Congress may
not now have the iwer to undo ail
of its unlawful acts; but there is a
vast difference UHween recognizing
this feet, if it be one, and admitting
that any illegal and fraudulent inter
ference with the rights of the States
and of the people must be acquiesced
in and accepted as " accomplished
facts" simply because a wicked and
designing party who chanced to be in
power saw fit to rWe rough-shod

carried their pride and Ealamtry to

TI1E RHINE AS A " BOUNDARY."
A generation ago Victor Hugo
wrote a book on the Khine, in which,
besides giving the most fascinating
ami pot tie of all descriptions of that
famous stream, he cried out, "France,
take back the Khine," as ht stood at
the tomb ol Hoc he, who was buried
on the shores of that river, and whose
grave is to this day jiointud out to the
curious tourist.
Napoleon, the bitter enem v of H uvn
has tried on several occasions to make
of this cry a national slogan to call to
his supjiort all parties in France. The
Khine is, according to many French
men, the "natural boundary" of
1 ranee. The Germans whom the
Emperor would like to make his sub
jects, however, do not agree with
him. The people of the German
Khenish provinces are German in
language, tastes and feelings, and
have no admiration of Napoleon III
or his policy. Belgium, with its
French-speaking population and with
but fortv vears of national existence
to overturn, would be a much easier
acquisition for r ranee.
THE OPINION OF THE FRENCH MIN
ISTER AT WASHINGTON.
M. Paradol, the new French Min
ister, while en route to Washington,
was interviewed at a New York-
hotel by a reporter of the New York
Herald, with the following result:
Iteporter I am aware, sir, that you
left trance before the present war
cloud appeared on the European hori
zon, and therefore you can say noth
ing of the present situation that we
do not know of already; but you are
thoroughly acquainted with the tem
per of the French people. Is French
w-ut mieni in favor of a war with
Prussia?
M. I'revost-Paradol Well, I speak
for myself as a Frenchman. The
people of France do not want war;
they want peace, trade, commerce,
industry. But should Prussia persist
in her attitude of defiance to France
insist upon putting a Prussian on
the Spanish throne all France will
Hi? for war. A Prussian on the Span
ish throne! is it not ridiculous? Sir,
it would be a blow at France an in
sult not to be bt.ir.-n. The case of
France and Pruia in this Hohen
zollern affair is similar to that of the
United States antl Mexico. Yon
could not stand Maximilian in Mex-k-o;
it would not do; the French can't
stand a Prussian in Spain. But there
will be no war. Bismarck is not such
a fool as to go to war tin such a frivol
ous pretext; the matter will be set
tle.! by the Emperor.
Keporter But, M. Paradol, sii
pose, as is stated in some of the tele
grams from England and France, thai
your government will not be content
with the declension of the Prince
ljfopold (who, as you are doobtiotri
aware, has relapsed into his original
littleness), but insists, now that
France is aroused, that Prussia shall
observe the treaty of Prague, what
then?
M. Paradol Ah! that is another
affair. Prussia (with emphasis) ought
to observe the treaty of Prague. If
the Emperor says she shall she will.
There may be a war on that question
but I can only give my opinion on
these matters as an individual, not as
a minister, for this complication arose
alter 1 left b ranee.
iteporter There seems to be in
France just now not one, but several
parties, all having different ideas of
government, but united in opposition
to tne empire, now would a war ut-
fect them?
M. Paradol A war with Prussia
defense of the legitimate influence of
France in the Peninsula would unite
Orleanists, Bourbonists, Reds and all
parties, mere will be put one party
in an rrauce wnen the nrst shut is
fired in defense of French honor, and

HOW WILL THE WAR AFFECT Tills
COUNTRY ?
From tho St. Louis Democrat.
The blockade of Prussian ports will
materially aneet the manufactures and
limit the supply, thereby enhancing
values, wiui wmcn enhancement
Great Britain and other countries
must sympathize. Thus, whether
gold goes up or down, manufactured
goods must experience a marked ad
vance. The producing industries
particularly of the agricultural ant
manufacturing classes, must be inter
fered with and retarded, thus throw
ing into other producing marts in
creased demands, and consequent auz
mentation of price. Great Britain
will therefore reap a large increase of
prostienty in her manufacturing dis
tricts, and the United States will be
called upon fur meats and gram. A
protracted war would probably restore
to our marine interests quite all that
they lost during our own struggle, and
t hat we shall have to pay in increased
prices will be more than made up in
the stir and activity of our shipping,
and the quickening of our agricultural
prosperity. Use growing confidence
in our government securities ought
not to be impaired, antl bonds, which
may temporarily be lowered in price,
will certainly be sought after as the
struggle proceeds. 1 he present pms
iicct is one for an advance in those of
our borne product Hour, grain, etc.
and a spirited stir in trade to avoid the
increased prices that must necessarily
prevail.
From the New York Herald.
Next to the increase in immigration
will l-a demand for our breadstuffs,
and high prices for our splendid grain
crops. If the war lasts we shall even
till some big gun contracts, and our
workshops will buru gas. Europe
will go on the debtor side of the books,
in a very unqualified way. Our bonds
at first w ill go down in the markets
of Furupo, for there will lie a rush fur
money to be handled in the great
tinancial transactions, and all values
held as investment will lie on the mar
ket ; but this will be only a first effeet.
Later it will be realized that the
ImiimIs of this great, prosperous,
peaceable ieople are the only securi
ties worth holding, and they will be
In demand at any price.
CONSOLIDATION Of THE
DEBT.
The New York Bulletin
sia has just consolidated
1 he entire capital of it is, say $24",
1100,600 goM. A tew weeks ago $67,
S00.60Q was placed at four per cent.,
and it apieared probable that the
balance of the fl'ioO.tloo would be
quickly subscribed. Should it be
necessary for Prussia to enter the
Eurojiean money market her long sus
tained integrity would assist her in
making as advantageous terms as any
omer government.
I'KOIIAHLK CUXSEIH ENCES OF THE
WAR.
From the Now York Sun
The consequences of the war can
not but be serious. The recent inter
view between the North German
King and the Russian Czar at Ems
seems to have had m view a clost
alliance between these powers, for the
purKjse of meeting a contingency
which has now at length arrived.
lionaparte having been the first to
rush to arms, Europe may hold him
responsible for the breach of the
peace, and organize a coalition against
his dynasty, in which Prussia, Rus
sia, nweuen, anu npain may possibly
be pitted against France, Austria,
and South Germany Italy is also
usually counted on the French side,
though it is far more likely that this
power should avail herself of the
tide ol events to make Rome the
capital ot Victor Emmanuel. As for
Spain, Napoleon w ill probably, in the
event of war, despatch one of the
Princes of his dynasty, at the head of
a powerful fleet and army, as ruler of
that country, leaving Cuba at liberty
to achieve her independence of the
volunteers who now rule and rob her.
The first object of the contending
powers will unquestionably be to lo
calize the war; but in view of the
unsettled relations between Egypt
and Koumaniaon the one hand and
the Porte on the other, and the gen
eral fermentation among the Chris
tians of the East and the Slavic pop
ulations of Austria, it is to be feared
that the con tlagration will spread till
over Euroe and Asia. This would
give to ltussia a chance to get the
Letter of Turkey, anil place England
in the alternative of war or the ex
tinction of her power in the East. As
for the United States, the sym oath ies
of our people are with Prirssla and
of
PRUSSIAN
says Prus
her debt.
This is a city of strategic and historic
importance. Shortly further on Is
Bingen; and there begins the mar
velous scenery which has given to the
Khine such world-wide celebrity, and
has made familiar the names of such
trifling though picturesque hamlets as
Oberwesel, St. Goar, Boppart, Ander-
nach, Bacharacli, Remagen and the
like. Midway among these is Cob
lentz, overlooked by J,hrcnbre
stein's castled night, and still further
down the stream is the collegiate town
or Bonn.
To add all these to the long list
Freueh towns would certainly be
splendid gain to France; this is what
is meant when Frenchmen cry with
Victor Hugo: "Take back the Khine.
It is, however, a large enterprise, and
not likely to succeed.
A FEARFUL INSTRUMENT OF WAR
FA BE.
The last aud most destructive of the
death-dealing project iie.s the exolo
sive bullet, designed by Perluiset, and
executed by a trench artisan in the
celebrated firearms factory of De
visme, is described in the last num
her ol the Arm; and Xary Journal
rlxternaJJy quite similar to the ongi
ual Miuie cylindrie-conical mass of
lead, it is discovered, by an unscrew
ing of its length about midway, to be
internally a magazine of nilmiuale,
The explosive compound dynamite
powder, eondeiistd powder, or what
ever it may be has an explosive
force six times that of gunpowder.
Experiments which have been made
under the patronage of the Russian
Prussian audjAustiiaa governments
ami last by our own War Department
demonstrate not only its effectiveness.
but the singular properties its
inventor has given it. "Being given
the distance of the target, its
density, the quautity of charge in the
gun, and tne same of the ingredients
constituting the projectile," he has
established a most, exact relation, by
accurate calculation, between the force
necessary to explode lite projectile and
its penetration before subjection to
tins pressure. Thus the magazine can
be so constituted that the passage of
the bullet through a sheet ol paper will
explode it, or so that the severe impact
of iron or hard wood is needed for such
a result. It is comforting to be assured
that " a ball which would not explode
in the body ot a soldier or a horse.
not at a very limited distance, would
explode in the more resisting body of
an ammunition wagon."
Though M. Pertuiset is the inventor
ol the particular missile to which ou
attention has been drawn, by a singu
lar propriety of circum.stauees Prince
1'ierre Napoleon, tho bete noire of the
Bonaparte family, appears to have
been its inspirer. From a little nam
phle t, badly translated .from an essay
on explosive projectiles, written by
tne crince, we are not surprised to
learn that its author entertained the
idea quite a number of years ago, and
even applied to Devisuie to make him
a gun of particular calibre, suited to a
hollow projectile of copper, or of an
alloy of lead and antimouv. The fact
of Bevisme's declining to produce the
arm, defeated the Frinee's purpose
The ethics of slaughter are defined
in no recognized c.xie, but there is a
pretty general accord among nations
that explosive bullets shall not be
used in small arms. Our readers have
not forgotten the convention into
which, at the instance of Russia, the
prominent nations of Europe entered
a year or two ago. louring our own
war tliere was an occasional sugges
tion of such missiles being used, but
we prefer to believe that the few cited
instances were altogether imaginary
We know that an invention of this
nature whether Perttiiset's or not,
we are uncertain was offered to the
Confederates and declined, on the
score of pure sentiment, by the Board
oi examining umeers: and, ir our
memory is not at fault, the infernal
missile was considered in a similar
spirit by our ar Department.
At the recent trial of Pertuiset'
projectile, made by the urdnanee De
partmentai Washington, the purpose
oi experiments seems to have been to
(e monstrate its utilitv in exploding
caissons, artillery .w agons, etc. The
twenty-seven shots, made at all sorts
of targets, proved the excellence of
the fulminate for such purposes. W't
are very sure that no civilize I gov
erumeui w hi in' n-pos.-i io adopt an
explosive mi -sue tor any oilier pur

France already owns the west bank
of the Rhine from a few miles north
of Basle, in Switzerland, to the fron
dier of the Palatinate at Lauterburg.
The possession of the last named dis
trict would add to the list of French
cities, Spires, with its old cathedral,
and the fortified places of Landau and
Neustadt, besides a largo number oi
smaller towns and villages. In Rhe
nish Prussia speaking always of the
western shore ol the Rhine the first
town of importance is Worms, asso
ciated with the name of Luther. After
passing over the flat, highly cultivated
district through which the Rhine here
sluggishly rolls along, the towers and
bridges oi juayence loom in sight

so. I have recently been convinced of Its
vi )..ti,m medical virtues, In t!ie relief at
tended Mr. Jaied Uoollllic. who was a case ol

lluutsv lite, for twelve muntlis Is fore goina

Disease of the Kidneys, a disesse that Is
scarcely, if ever, relieved by the sid of msd
, ,i -i,-'it. thereby prodncing fee,ienl
Dropsy of Ihe most formis-shV character.
I l.sd of bis ever being relieved,
when, to my astonishment. In a very short
time, by the use of tbe water of your wells,
be has been placed a-rain on bis leet, and Is
uovi utile, to some extent, to prosecnte bis
iluily avocjtinn. I feel no hesitancy, but
would urge npon patients suffering simi
larly, to visit at once your Wells, as betn
tbe surest means of regaining their health
and vigor. UEUBUK K. ttfJLLlVAM, M.D.

disease. Dyspepsia. Before a week elapsed

sufJsrteg ftm Dropsy and t'urouic Diar
rnes. In three weeks be waaent!reiy re
lieved from tils latter, anil almost from tbe
lormer. 1 am sslislleU by experience aud
observation that the Water has extraordin
ary curative properties in Dyspeala, Dropsy
and diseases of tbe bowels. It is also more
palitable, aud much colder than most min
eral waters. 1 believe it possesses ss much
virtue as any mineral water In this country,
and time will prove 1L C. C. CLAY, Jr.
HtnmvtLLK. ALA., July 19. MM.
Sir: 1 feel pleasure is giving a certificate
to the effect thai your watering place has
been of great benefit to myself tbe short
time i stayed there, sry complsiut was
t'liron u Jaundice, which was fast resolving
itseit a, to Dropsy. When 1 came to your
Wells my condition was truly aad, and my
bone of so early an eradication of so long
seated a distember was forlorn. Your waters
have certainly woudertul curative powers.
To all who have Dropsy, Chronic Diarrhea,
Dyspepsia or Kidney complaints,! cheerfully
recommend vour Wells, believing at the
aame time in tbeir efficacy In other diseases.
