undeniable, and is fully illustrated in
the efforts of those who have no pri

triots that they are, set aside the de
man'ls of business auri social life, and

the hydra-headed corruptionista who

Surely such efforts as th'se, such self

will be eeei that the proper ticket for
those who are in favor of the amend

The Brave Kescuc.
A STOIiY OF CEriiON'.
I was an only child, aad my father
was a widower, bo that our actual ne
cessities ia that olieapjacd frugal coun
try, teyion, were eubily piovidrd for.
Our nearest neighbor waa Air. Fors
ter, a plantar, by far wealthier than we
were. Now Oswald Foster and I wtte
pkyhted lovers, but the very idea of
u engagement bttween his only son
and the daughter of his embarrassed
n!ithbor was gall and wormwood to
Oswald's faiher a proud, strong-willed
man.
Desirous to efface from OawaldV
rnind the idea of marrying poor little
Ellen Travers, Mr. Foster, with nib
W'fw'a concur re no, proposed to jvend
his boh to Europe, oonflden that for
eign travel aud obauge of sceue would
soon obliterate from his memory the
image of the lonely little girl bevide
the great tauk of Mmarj. And now a
word concerning the tank itsell, the
name oi which, I fear, conveys to the
road or but a very inadequate concep
tion ot the stupendous reality. The
tank of Minary, justly reckoned among
th marvels which the island of Cey
lon h stilt to show, is pbihaps the
grandest of tho artificial lakes ever
planned by mortal engineer. Moi
than two thousand years passed ainc,
before he Christian era, a Buddhist
king bade his aubjfeoU toil to erect the
rn;siTa walls of hewn atone and tongh
chunam tha- nviic-u that vast sheet of
water, twenty-five miles in eicum
fereuce. With the Minary lake, or tank,
which lay oiose to ruy own homo, I had
been from childhood familiar, and I
d.arly loved the mirrorhke expanse of
its cuim waters, fctudded with lloating
i-iiaiids of tho crimaou bloebomed lotus
of India, the rd flowara und green
iettvee of which covered many thous
and acrea of tho surface. Strai,ge fih
of brilliant colors glided in alittcinz
shoals through the deep, clear water,
raiely disturbed by prow or paddle ;
bright birds cf every size, from the
caritr flamingo to the tsny oriolo or
the towering adjutant, haunted it ;
and all around grew in denst profit
fusion the mighty trees and flowering
creepers of the virgin forest, whence
came at times the complaining cry of
the mountain cat, the belling of the
deer, the panther' snarl, or tho crash
ing of cane and sapling, as wild ele
phants forced their way through the
traoklefis recesses of the jungle.
Alligators were very common, snakes
Xlentiful, and the scorpion, the centi
pede, and the tree icccu wtre often to
be met with in the more KWmpy and
tangitd tracts of the wo&dlandtf.
Oswald was going away, and it would
be but very seldom that we were to
meet henceforth, since, poor fellow,
he was to sail by the Lord Dalhousie,
txpected at Point de Gaile on the
thirty first of the montb.
I went with a hoavy heart to the
pot where we always mot. To my
surprise I did not at first see him for
whom I looked, and begun to fear that
he hud forgotten lo keep his wouted
tryt ; but, on drawing nearer, 1 be
held a eight that for the moment froze
my very veins with horror, and oaus
od the cry of anguish that rose to my
lips to die away. Oswald, lying on
the tnrf among the roots of the gigan
tic palm tree, seamed to be asleep,
overcome, probably, by the unusual
heat, while around him was loosely
coiled something that resembled a
etout rope, curiously streaked with
black and orange and white some
thing that caused the withered leaves
and crisp graea to rustle, as it btirred,
writhing.
I had never seen a living tic paluu
ga, but I knew at the first glance that
tho snake before my eyes was no other
than a large specimen of that dieaded
reptile, which in Ceylon takes the po
sition that in continental India belongs
to the cobra, and for the bite of which
there is no known remedy. Twice
within the last three year laborers ou
my father's plantation had been
brought in dying from the veaom of
the tie palunga, but in each instance
the skill of the native snake charmer
had led to tho oapture of tho reptile,
and it was not believed that any of
this xpecies, rare as weil as danger
ous, had been left alive in our imme
diate neighborhood. This, however,
was ui; questionably a tio palunga,
many feet loug, and it had wrapped
its coil, as though in hideous sport,
around Oswald's limbs as he lay there
unconscious.
The great flat head of the enormous
snake rested on the ground among the
flowers snd ferns. 1 could see itueyes,
bright as jewels, fixed upon me. It
showed, for the moment, however, no
particular signs of anger or distrust,
but contented itself with quietly con
templating the intruder on its haunts.
As I stood gazing on my sleeping
lover and the monstrous creature that
lay, wakeful, but quieBcent, so near to
him, all the stories of snakes that I
had ever heard or read came crowd
ing in upon my quickened memory.
I knew that tite tio palunga, in com
mon with most of the venomous varie
ties of its race, seldom employed its
poison fangs unless when attacked or
annoyed ; but I also knew that the
hardiest elephant hunter of the forests
would sooner confront the charge of a
herd of incensed tuskers than face the
loncelike dart and rancorous bite of
this dreaded denizen of the jungle.
The tic palunga, unlike the boii and
the python, rarely, if ever, preys upon
the larger animals, such as deer or
oattle, confining its diet, for the most
part, to birds aDd frogs and lizards.
Some cappice, most hkely, had caused
it to twine a part of its supple convo
lutions around Oswald as he lay, and
so long as he remained asleep and ruo
tionless, there was little probability
that the serpeut would harm him.
My great fear was lest he should awake,
and, iu awaking, by some haty mov -tnent,
arouse the ire of the resistless
foe. Oswald was brave and t-trong,
but it was a mockery to speak of
i-treugih or courage when so terrible
au untagouist was in question.
Suddenly, as if it had been a whis
per fiom Heaven, there came into in
mind a thought that promised hop ,
iveo iu that diie fxtiernity of ne it.
I hud often seen harmless snakes kept
tame in colonial households, and was
aware of their habits, and of their
love for ceitain kinds of food, and,
above all, for milk. Could I but bring
to that spot a supply of milk, atnfr
place it, before Oswald should awake,
temptingly near to the tic palunga, all
might be well. And yet to desert him
poor fellow I in such terrible com
pany seeme J cruel ; yet it was for hid
sake, and I felt that 1 must go. Very
slowly, then, lest my footsteps should
disturb the sleeper or irritate the huge
leptile that kept watch beside him, I
stole away, and when at a safe dis
tance, flew rather than ran along the
orest path.
The nearest European dwelling was
Oswald's own home. There were Cin
galese huts nearer, no doubt, wh re
dwelt some of Mr. ForsterV hired men,
but I should not be able to pis cure
what I sought save from the planter's
house. At auother time I should not
hive willingly trespassed on the do
mains ot Oswa d's father; but this was
no occn-ion for scruple or punctilio.
L f e and death, as I knew, depended
my speed.
There at length rote up before me
the milk thorn hedge, the impenetra
ble thorns of which are useful in beep
ing out leapard aud jackal, which sur
rounded tlie planter s homestead; aui
passa g through at open gate, I eu-ttr-d
the compound. The first ser
vum that I met, and who lifted his
hnd to iii a turban with a poitte
"Salaam !" aud a smile that t. bowed
his white teeth between his bearded
lips, was a man -vhom I knew, a
Mahrutta room, who had formerly
been in my lather's service, a d
whoe child I had nuied tftrough an
attack of the Ceylou fever.
"Lall Singh !" I gasped out, panting
for bieat h, "do me a kindness for the
wake of old bread and Malt. Get mj
some freh milk quickly, for tho love
oi God, but ask no questions bhai !"
Something in my tone impressed the
Mahratta, for without a word he hur
ried off, and soon returned bearing a
jar of milk aird a drinking vessel, "or
lota, which would contain someting
less than a (int, aud which, at a sign
from me, he filled with milk. This
very act, slight as it, seems, was no
small compliment, for it was doubtless
his own drinking cup that La'l Siugu
wa giving me, aud should any lip not
bfloj.gi;.g to oue of the pure Hindu
descent touch its burnished rim. it
would hereafter bo unfit for use.
HowtVci, 1 Mcuroeiv waited to utter a
word oi thanks, but .snatched up tho
bran lota and darted out.
It may be thought singular that I
had not given the alarm to the house
hold at Mr. Forster's plantation; but
I had i t-solved that I would not, ii 1
oould do my errand unquestioned,
create a turmoil which might bring
about me the very evil against whic'i :
was stiivi g. Oswald's rnotLu r and
sisters loved him, but their nervo
were nor the ttronget, a-id their out
cries, had they beard the news, would
hnve had the effect of summoning a
score of servants and coolies, and to
seal Oswald's fate by sending a ntisy
posse of volunteers to the place where
he lay at the snake's m. rc .
As on winged feet, yet carrying the
preoioun draught of milk with jealous
care, I hurried back to tho spot wlurt,
at the fool of the huge talipot tree" lay
Oswald, yet arleej . The snake, how
ever, as though uneasy, was beginning
to stir. Its monstrous head wagged
slowly from ?ido to side among ihe
whits vi)d flowers, and its Blender
tongue protiudtd from between its
grim jaws. But I was in time, aud 1
poured the milk, or rathej; a portion of
it, on tho giouni, so that a long trail
should lead to the pot where I tat
down-the brass drinkiu cup, with wh.".t
of its contents remained, aud was care
ful to avoid, by any abrupt gesture,
incensing the-tio paiuug.
Then o ime a minute or two of ago
nized expectancy, end then, to my
great joy I saw the r ptile slowly un
coil himself, evidently making for the
milk. First oue wreath and then
another of the snake's limber iength
was untwined, and the great serpent,
brushing through the- foiest glass and
flowrtts, stooped it? bioad head to
drink. As 1 saw Oswald thus freed,
and the unaufrpctiug foe draw fur
ther awaj from the p'aoe where he
repo.-ed, I feit the strength that br-d
hitherto supported me suddenly be
come weakuos. My nerves being no
longer biaoed by the sense of Oswald's
mortal psril, he instinctive ttrro aud
disgust which f had from childhood
felt for the serpent trib ftverpowered
me, and I grew weak, and could
scarcely stand and scarcely see.
What wa this before my dim - jes ?
The well known porch of the Dutch
colonit's summer house, overgrown
by trailing crtepers, and all bu:
choiad by tall weed. Mechanically
I entered, and sitting down on a
mouldeiing wooden seat, ones decked
with silken cushions and gold leaf, I
gradually regained the physical
strength which had deserted me, aiid
with it Ihe capacity lor thougnt. xi iS
cvrioua how, in kuch cases of tiienu;
exhaustion, the btnumbed mind slow
ly resumes some abandoned train of
tnoi gbt, and thut it va wuii me.
Bv degrees I remembered OswalUs
danger, my own efforts to save him,
and
What was that rustling among the
sterns and leaves and buds of the lux-
urant plants that festooned the shat
tered windows of ti-e summer house in
all the rank profusion of their tropical
growth? Surely surely not the rip
pling, undulating motion with which
a huge snake drags himself in ihe brake
aud luuele crass ! les; my tears
were but too true, for there in the
open window space the broken
trelliswork of which had been re
placed by wild vines and dangling
orchards appeared, at a height of six
or eight feet above the ground, the
Hv'eouB head of the serpaut that had
lately menaced Oswald and now con
fronted me.
And then it flashed upon me tuat
this deserted kiosk was probably the
reptile's actual home, and that, as
though in the verj irony of terror, I
had ventured to intrude into the hai
of the terrible creature from the sight
of which I had once that Oswala's
safety seemed assured reeied dizzily
away. I had ofteu ht.!d of tue strange

the futility of resistance or of flight
forced itself upon me,;,and I stood,

fixed with so pitiless a stare on mine.
The subtle, suffocating odor which
large serpents exhale, when angry,
reached me; but already I gave myseit
for lost, and waited passive will the tio
palunga should make his fatal dart.
The sibilaut noise f r- m the snake's
half-shut jaws had grown louder, and
the bright, baleful eyes more menacing,
while the grim head towered high aloft,
ready to strike, when suddenly some
thing bright flashed through the flower

maa voiC's;?.nd then Oswald came leap
ing throug the doorway, me'.took in his
arms, and bore me out into the broad
light of day where lay writhing yet
the carcass of the snake, hewn thro
ugh by the sharp cuttiug ax which
Oswald tiil grasped in his right hand.
"Shabash!"' exclaimed Lall Singh,
whose swarthy face gleamed with

vai quish'.-d reptile. "It was well that

To Ldl Singh I was, indeed, in no
slight degree indebted for my safety.
Convinced, fioni the agitation of my
manner, that something was wrong, he
1 ad followed me, and was in the act of
arouaiii'iOswald from his slumber when
tho piercing shriek which fear had
wrung from me re-echoed through the
woods and called attention to the immi
nence of the peril. Thn Oswald had
snatched up one of the keen, short axes
which the native woodcutters had left
stioaing in a tree trunk, aud had been
fortunate enough to disable thesuak- at
the first blow.
My story is now to'd, and I have only
to add that I was overwhelmed with
praises and caresses by the Forster
fam;lv hitherto so cold and that on
the following dav Mr. Forster himself
rode over to mv father's house to
tntreat Mr. Travers. from whom he
had of late been estranged, to accept
his renewed friendship, and to ask for
my hand on behalf of Ins son. Oawaid
lost his passage on boar the homeward
bound steamer that was to touch at
Point de Galle: and when he did visit
Europe, he took with him Ellen Trav
els as his wife.

Ou Wednesday night, in New York,
there was a great public meeting to
hear what Parke Godwin had to say
about the political "situation." He
made a lucid statement and a power
ful argument why the nation should
elect Tilden, and thus get rid of Radi
calism, and reform the Government.
After he concluded, Judge Thomas J.
Mackay, of the Circuit Court of South
Carolina, was called out and introduc
ed to the audience. He was warmiy
received, and made a speech, which is
noticed as follows by the World re
porter :
' After speaking at great length on
the past and present condition of South
Carolina, Judge Maokay said that the
people of his State were determined to
throw of! the oppressive yoke which
they had boruo for the past even
years. Cheers "Wo are carryiig
the nag of the Union, and consider
ourselves good and loyal American
citizens. Cheers. We mean to stand
firm in our tiiort to free ourselves
from ho abides heaped upon us by
corrupt rule, but we mean to accom
plish this by the ballot and not by tho
snoid. Cheers. Since the close of
the war we have greatly suffered from
the present pernicious government.
At thnt time thn population of South
Carolina was 700.0UO, composed of
about .400,000 blacks and 279,000
whites. In July, 1808, tho debt of the
State was $5,000,000, and in six years
it had inci cased to 20.000,000. Tho
tiuhlie priming alone one year cost
S'i00,0i)0. J he whole taxable property
did not amount to over 130.000.000.
f 1 1 1 i ir u'.i!
n ii. e Uepubiieuns extracted
t T 1 l . .a
$2,000,000
yearly. All the work of
t!ie Legislature, couid be completed in
thirty days, but the session is exten
ded over 100 dayf, costing each year
$012,000. The system of taxat.. in
tho State amounted to nothing shoitof
confiscation of property. "Shame !"
Columbia, the cnpital of the State, has
a tax of J per cent., while the bank
rate of interest is from eighteen to
thirty per cent., owing to the great
risk of making any kind of investment.
We cannot draw capital from the great
North in exchange for the products of
the Stnte, now wasting for the want of
a proper market. There are, out of
10,000.000 acres of arable land, only
3,000,000 acres under cultivation,
owing to the high rate of interest and
the vicious system of government.
?he only class of persons who have
done well in South Carolina are the
carpet-baggers an I thft office-holders
the latter grow richer as the Gov
eruruent'growfl more corrupt laugh
ter, and are likely to do so until they
are viped out at the coming election."
Applause The speaker then refer
red to the nomination of General
Wade Hampton for Governor of South
Carolina, who, he said, was free from
political taint, as were the other Des
moctatic candidates for office: They
iutended to do their duty, and had
dared to face their Republican ene
mies even iu spite of the bayonet.
Cheers.

VI . IV. Holden.
This extraordinay individual de
nies the statement of Rev. Mr. Bai
ley, which it seems Mr. B. has made
to more than one in the last few years.
Mr. Ralley had no earthly motive for
traducing Holden. The latter coald
not admit the truth of his oonf ession
without seriously compromising Grant
and his administration. Within the
last few days, evidence has been fur
nished confirming Holden's confes
sion to Mr. Bailey. Uhamberlaim ia
now playing the same role in South
Carolina that Holden did in our own
State. He has started out as Holden
did with a Proclamation declarinc
certain counties in a state of insur
rection and ordering the insurrec
tionary bodies to disband. Thus did
Holden m regard to Caswell and Al
amance. Chamberlan will follow
np this with the same violent meas
ures which Holden employed. Now,
how doos it happen that the reform
ed thief acts just as Holden did? Is it
not plain that Chamberlain got his
programme at Washiugton.wl ere Hol
den said'in his confession that he got
hh ? The conduct of Chamberlain is au
incidental proof that Holden told Mr
Bailey the truth, when he said that
the Kirk War was planued in Wash
ingtou in the interests of the Radi
cal party. Tho deposed Governor
now denies thai he made such a con
fession. But he also denies that he
took bribes and Deweese and Hugh
L. Pike, both Radicals, and his in
timate cronies, while the stealincr
was going on, say that he was re
peatedly bribed. Deweese was a
member of Congress during Holden's
administration. Pike was the editor
of the Standard at Raleigh, and au
thor of the phrase "hoftv on the
Castalian." Here is what Pike said:
"I hereby swear that I am knowing
to the fact that W. W. Holden did
in the year Ibrjy, receive $2,000
(twenty five thousand dollars) in
North Carolina bonds, for giving his
signature to a certain act." Horace
L. Pike. May 3rd, 1870.
A brite taker will not hesitate to
ie besides. Holden is editing a pa
per, miscalled, the Constitution, which
is just as full of faluehoods and ma-
igmty.as some of the great religious
newspapers of the .worth. If any
truth of a political character is pub-
ished in the Constitution, we venture
the assertion that it has esoaped the
editor's eye.
Ilic Indiana Garrrmander,
It may have doubtless puzzled many
of our readers to understand how the
Indiana Republicans managed to elect
nine out of the thiarteen Congressmen
from that State, with a majority ef
over six thousand in the popular vote
against them. The News and Courier
says the detailed returns of the elec
tion in the several Congressional .Dis
tricts show how effectually the infa
mous arrangment of those Districts by
the Republican Legislature has stifled
the voice of the people. These are the
figures that tell the tale:
4th District 405
6th Otatrttt 2.'"3tt
6th District 1.057
7th District 8,334
8'b Ditric 80
SthDia'ilct 699

loth iltri. t 6'0
Ilth District 2,476
13;h Di3trict 2.353
Net Democratic
Total 12,539 majority 6,18
It will be seem that in the four dis
ricts carried by the Democrats their
majority aggregates 18,723, whilst the
nine districts carried by the Repub
licans give only sn aggregate majority
of 12,539, giving the Democrats a
majority in the State, on the Con
gressional vote, of 6,186, despite the
fact that they secured less than one
third of the Congressmen. The In
dianapolis Sentinel makes the point
that, under the present apportionment
aws of Indiana, the Demooreats must
have a majority of 17,000 of the pop
ular vote in order to control the Leg
islature and have a majority of the
Congressmen. This is the kind of re
cognition of the rights of the majority
thai calls its lf "Republicanism" in
the Centennial year of American In
dependence. The rifle clubs in South Carolina,
which Gov. Chamberlain has outlawed,
have been officially recognized by him
again and again. To one of them he
presented, in the name of the State, a
silken banner, be me- by that company
in the pageant at Banker Hill. When
Chamberlain came to Charleston last
summer he was escorted by the Colum
bia Rifle Clubs. Oa the 28th of June
he rode through the streets of Charles
ton at the head of the rifle clubs of
South Carolina and Georgia, accompa
nied by similar companies from New
York and Boston, and at night he broke
bread with those rifle clubs as their
d'ustinguifched guest.
