The Court of Claims.
The Court of Claims,- in session at
Washington, have decided in favor of the
Government in the case of cotton seizure
in Alabama in 1864. The claimants were
Curlute and Henderson, British subjects,
residing in Georgia during the war, but
were engaged in making saltpetre, which
the court construes into giving aid and
comfort to the enemy. Otherwise the
claim against the Government was good.
The court allow- the claim of Francis J.
Willis, of Savannah, for $26,000, the
proceeds of one hundred and twenty-four
.bales of captured cotton throughout the
rebellion. He warmly opposed secession.
Daniel Hass, a subject of France, resid
ing in Charleston, was allowed $12,000 for
ninety bales of cotton seized at Charleston
The court allowed another claim, in
value $12, 345.
Other claims were dismissed, wing to

-Last week a lady returned home in the
evening, aud heard some noise in a room

followed. The body ol' Ute woman who

A LOST WEDDING PARTY.-From Glou

in the morning, and the party were to
leave for New Vori; at night, so to lill thc
measure of the day went roaming over
beach and scar, and finally gathered in the
boat for a short sail upon a sea that
scarcely rippled. It was the last that was
heard of them. \Vhether upset by a sud
den squall, or borne out to mid-ocean by
counter-gales, is unknown. No one is left
to tell the story of the death, and through
the lonely casements of the mansion, eyes

A WHOLE FAMILY STRICKEN DOWN.
The Barnwell (S. C.) Journal records the
following sad events :
^ Mrs. Josephine Harley, wife of Mr.
Frank Harley, who died a few days since,
expired at the residence of her father, C.
ii. Langley, Esq., near this village,' on
Monday last. Thc two children oi this
lady expired the same day. Thus within

ing tiie city bridge, about midway of the
bridge two or three meii sprang upon him
and gave him a severe -beating" with fists
an 1 cudgels. One or two pistol shots were
also fired, but evidently more for the pur
pose bffrightening than 'harming as none
them took effect. Armstrong went to
Hamburg after Iiis assailants left him and
remained there during Sunday. On yes
terday he returned to this city, where" ht
is at thc present writing. We learn that

who committed the assault. It is said,
however, that soon after President Davis'

him.in unmeasured terms, and made the
additional remark that " Blodgett and the
negroes were the only decent people in
Augusta." These reported speeches may
have had something to do with the affair
upon the bridge. Armstrong is said to be
from Barnwell county, South Carolina,

A FAIR PROPOSITION.-The Cincinnati
Commercial, (Republican, yet one of the
most independent journals "in the Union,)
in its issue of thc 20th, expresses itself in
the following significant manner :
'The masses of the people are not
anxious to fight over again the battles of
the war. Their weariness with the decla
mation that relates exclusively to the
saving of the country when the use of
the bayonet became necessary, has only
been exceeded by the impatience with
which they regarded the obstinacy of the
politicians of the Democratic persuasion
who refused to recognize accomplished
events as fixed facts. If the Democracy
take the Vallandigham 'departure, the
Republicans will have something to do
besides the glorification of war heroes
and the exploitation of the horrors of
the Ku Klux conspiracy. There will be

Edgefield, S. C., June 1, 1871.
Vallandigham Turns' a Somersault!
VaUandigham, the great Ohio Demo
crat, the king of the Copperheads, has
lately issued a manifesto-if ydu may so
express it-in which he distinctly recedes
from his old stiff and stern Democratic
position and urges the national Democra
cy to-recognize and assent to the Recon
struction measures and the three new
Amendmentsto the Constitution. This
seems wonderful in Vallandigham-al
most incredible! But it is nevertheless
true. And it is equally true also that
Vallandigham is a very able man and a
very honest man. Among all political
parties his new position is the great sen
sation of the day.
The meaning and design of Vallandig
ham in this move, is to win- over a large
body of candid and sagacious Republi-.
cans, and thus secure the triumph of the
Democratic party in the Presidential
election of next year. Or in other words,
for the Democracy to gain possession of
the government by a considerable sacri
fice of principle and at the cost of a fear
ful innovation upon our Republican form
of government. This new movement
may be for the best, but we doubt it very
seriously. We have long been hoping
and are willing to wait long for it-that
sometime in the future this reconstruc
tion policy and these new amendments
might be reversed, or at least essentially
modified. But if the Democracy should,
by this move, be installed in Washington
in 1873, of course they must say to the
whole country, "This thing is settled."
And thereupon the brave and honest op
ponents of Reconstruction and of the
Amendments would be obliged to give
up the fight and sink forever out of
The Great Treaty With Eugland.
The great Treaty between tho United
States and England, which the Anglo
American High Commission have been
arranging for three months past in Wash
ington, is at last finished, ' and has been
ratified by tho Senate.
This Treaty provides for the appoint
ment of three different Commissions.
The first of these is the so-called Tribu
nal of Arbitration. Its function is to
deal with the long-vexed Alabama claims,
and it has five members. One of thom
is to be appointed by the President, one
by Queen Victoria, one by the King of
Italy, one by the President of Switzer
land, and one by the Emperor of Brazil.
This tribunal is to meet at Geneva, in
Switzerland, within two months after the
ratification of the treaty, and eight months
are assigned for the preparation and ar
gument of the cases on each. side. But
the time within which the award must
be made is not limited. This award may
be of a sum in gross to be paid by Great
Britain ; but if the tribunal does not
make such an award, a Board of Asses
sors is to be appointed -to act upon each
individuel claim for damages. One mem
ber of this Board of Assessors is to be
appointed by the President, one by the
Queen, and one by the Italian Minister
at Washington. It is to sit in Washing
ton, New York or Boston, but the time
of its meeting and duration of its ses- "
sions are not fixed.
. The second Commission is that to set
tle American claims against England,
and the claims of British subjects against
thc United States, arising out of acts
against persons or property committed
between April 13th 1861, and April 9th
1865, exclusive of the acts of Confederate
cruisers. One of the members of this
Commission is to be appointed by the
Pre rident, one by the Queen, and a third
by the Presidont and Queen conjointly.
They are to meet at Washington, but the
time of their meeting is not determined.
A third Commission is also to be ap
pointed upon the Ca?ad:?'1 fisheries, con
sisting of three members, one nauiod by
the President, one by the Queen, and toe
third by the Queen and President con
jointly. This Commission will sit at
Halifax, in Nova Scotia, but nothing is
prescribed in the treaty respecting the
date of its appointment and meeting, or
the period of its labors.
This Treaty was ratified in the Senate
liv a veiw large majority, and has been
generally received throughout the Union
with great favor. It will certainly take
an immense amount of money lo cany
out its provisions, but we hope great good
will be the result. We cannot say, how
ever, that wo feel any interest whatever
in seeing rich Yankees paid immense
sums for pretended losses by means of
our privateers during the war.
The New Couuty of Aiken.
On Saturday, May 27th, the cominis
sioners appointed to select the site for the
court house arid jail of Aiken County
(says the Charleston News) held a meet
ing,' Senator P. Arnim presiding. After
silencing Prince Rivers and one or two
of his friends, who were disposed to.do
lay matters and occasion discord, the
commissioners examined plans and esti
mates submitted for the erection of the
contemplated buildings, and were con
vinced that suitable ones could not be*
erected for less than fifty thousand dol
lars. Not wishing to tax tho citizens for
this purpose, it was resolved t*> petition
tho Legislature for leave to issue bonds
for tho amount required upon the credit
of the county. Tho site for thc building
was not determined upon, but a commit
tee was appointed for that purpose. It is
believed that a place about midway be
tween the two hotels will be selected. It
is tho opinion that if thc Legislature

there will be no difficulty in raising the

ABBEVILLE COUNTY, 29th May, 71.
MB. EDITOB : In passing through your
County a few days ago an opportunity
was afforded me of seeing the crops along
the road from Edgefield to Ninety-Six. .
There is a much largerampunt of small
grain-planted than for many years here
tofore, and the yield will be increased In
proportion. Oats aie looking very fine,
and the earliest varieties are how being
harvested. Corn is looking remarkably.
Well, and has evidently been well worked.
The " stand " of Cotton too is good. It is
true there is not as much destroyed in
"chopping out" as heretofore, but the
..stand" is amply sufficient. We have
discovered that Our planters aro chronic
grumblers when the crop is in its present
stage, and we predict, (the grumbling.oi
many to the contrary notwithstanding,)
that unless some unforseen misfortune
befalls the crop, the present will be one
of the most prosperous years since the

The public roads of your County, it
would seem to a traveler, have not been
worked fo- the last ten years. But we
are aware of the disadvantages under
which the County Comrissioners labor.
We know thf.t if they are strict, and re
quire the fiel 1-hands to discharge their
'duty as good citizens, it is possible they
may not be promoted to a higher office at
the next election. In fact, Mr. Editor,
there is but little chance under the pres
ent system of road v eking, for the Com
missioners to make money out of it ; and
for this very reason there is but little
chance for us to get our roads properly
It-seems to us that some system might
be'introduced which would be an im
provement on the present. Might not a ]
capitation or other tax be levied for the
purpose of building bridges, working
the roads, <fcc? The money arising there
from might be judiciously expended by
Road Commissioners under the manage
ment of the County Commissioners. The
road Commissioners might make their
estimates and report to the County Com
missioners. The different public roads
riiight be let to suitable persons who
would be required to give bond, <fec, for
the proper fulfillment of their contract;
Public buildings and bridgos are built in
this manner, and why might not we ap
ply thc same system to working the
The killing of Watt Faulkner is the
general topic of conversation in the upper
portion Of your County. Most persons
are particular to say but little, as thej^are'
convinced that somebody is in earnest.
"Was Faulkner killed by the Ku.
This question is asked by every one,
and is unsatisfactorily answered. The
truth is, it is almost impossible to sup
pose that the Ku Klux killed him, from'
the fact that no reason is assigned for such
action. To whom did he give any infor
mation ? What secret did he communi
cate ? Why should they kill a compan
ion who had remained under fire until
seriously wounded ?
These and similarquestions are asked
on all sides, ano! of course, so far, remain

losing a good husband, while he himself
persists in marring the perfectness of his
life by thus lingering in the dry and arid

For the Advertiser.
MB. EDITOB:-I hear it rumored that
we are to accept the situation-the abnor
mal situation in politics.
Let' us examine, in a brief manner, our
past situation and the present, and thc
causes which have been and still are in
operation to bring about a healthful state
of things in politics. In respect to" tho
causes which brought on the struggle we
.have passed through, we .say that we
were right in one sense-at least accord
ing to the opinion of thc most philosoplii
cal and statesman-like interpretations'ol
the United States. In another sense, we
were wrong,-having violated or attempt
ed to retard the great foundation princi-.
pie of enlightened and civil governments.
It is perceptible on an examination of
tho philosophy of history, that before
and during what w? denominated the
dark ages of our history, governments
did trench on the rights of the people,
and allowed individuals to trench on thc
rights of others ; but, especially since
the feudal age, government has advanced,
and now says : You can do as you please,
so long as you do not trench on the rights
of others. An'd this fondamental idea
certainly abolishes slavery. And it oc
curs to tho writer tlrat, losing sight of
this fundamental idea, and holding on to
the special guarantee under our own Con
stitution, wc precipitatcd.the abolition of
our own favorite institution-an institu
tion which was certainly valuable *.o tho
world, anti to the individuals represent
ing it, and would have proved valuable
to all parties in the indefinite future. But
wo precipitated its dissolution, and be
hold tho situation.
Are we to accept'it? No, and why?
Because the situation is thc result of force;
and in violation of the fundamental prin
ciple alluded to. The records of the past
give instances of the inferior classas
rising up in their might, and usurping
tho government, but they have always
been equal in Constitutional endowments.
But here is a race at the South, with very
inferior Constitutional endowments, who
have usurped the government of the
States, and how ? Why, by tho aid of
that most unscrupulous set, whose like
have pounced, upon governments in all
ages, in times of trouble, and torn them
to pieces. But the situation- is not des
perate, seeing tho usurpation is the result
of accident, and by a mongrel set who
have generally been in thc lowest situa
tions. But the race which seems to be
bearing the burden of the day-a race
who made the world of art, science, lite
rature, mechanics, refinement, and all
regular governments too, and forever
will do so, with perhaps an occasions^
ephemeral interruption,-will doubtless
soon change the situation.
Some of the causes which have been
and are still in operation to ch.inge thc
situation may have been, and .still are, to
human appearances, irregular, but in thc
settlement of manj' things in this life,
and more especially in war and politics,,
moral questions aro ignored, and for
aught we know in accordance with uni
versal thought. Conllict seems to be uni
versal- in nature, and our present conflicts
may be tho means of softening, intimida
ting and bringing into harmony that
