FouNDE.n o: A ROcK '-The disappointed adventurers who have from time to time attempted to run their worthless potions against. Drake's Plantation hitters, vow that they cannot understand what founda. tion there is for its amazing popularity. The explanation is simple enough. The reputation of tho world-renowned tonic is founded upon a rock, the Rock of Expe rience. All its ingredients are pure and wholesome. flow, then, could tricksters and cheata expect to rival it with .so pounds of cheap drugs and refuse liquor, with liquorle-s trash in a state of adetous fermentation ? Of course the charlatans have come to grief. Their little game has failed. 'I heir contempt for the sagocity of the community has been fitly punished. i leanwhile Plantation Ditters seems to be in a fair way of eventually superseding every other melicinal preparation included in thu class to which it belongs.

Glorious and delightful as the Sumamer we.it.her is, its tropical heat is a severe trial to the vital powers. Even the strongest are sometimes prostrated by its effects. The common phrase applied to this condi. tion of the body is "general debility." Now, general debility arises from, and in cludes ai variety of ailments. The liver is more or less affected, the bowels are either constipated or too much relaxed, the atom neh but half perforna the pork of diges lion, the appetite too moor, and spirit de pressed.

Whitley, chief of the detective force, has addressed the following let. ter to Attorney General Williams: Naw YORK, August 9, 1872. SIR ; I have the honor to aeknowl. edge the receipt of a communication from your Department, under date of second instant, enclosing a copy of a letter from Gorritt Smith, Esq., ad dressed to the President in relation to those convicts in the Albany Peniten. tiary, who were convicted of ' 4-1 tions of the enforcement ac I requesting me to go to Alban make a thorough invcstigati o the condition of these prisono. .d report to the department my vt, is as to the expediency of exercising ex eeutive clemency in regard to any of them. In accordance with your request I proceeded to Albany on the 7th inst., for the purpose of fulfilling the duty assigned me. As a means of conduct ing my inquiries in a manner best adapted to arrive at all . the facts in the case, and also to lead the prison era to express themselves as freeley as possible, I deemed it best to see each of the parties separately without any knowledge upon their part is to my official character or the object of my visit. In this I received the fullest aid of Mr. Louis D. Pillsbury, head keeper of the penitentiary, who brought each prisoner in separately, with the sim - pie remark to each, that this gentle wan desires to talk with you. The prisoners were mainly frank and con tnunnteative. Some of itherl are vely poor, and unlearned, and have left large families behind them, and while acknowledging that they were mern bers of the various orders of the or ganization known under the general head of Ku Klux Klan, and that they had been justly sentenced as such, plead an extenuation that they had joined the order without a full know ledge of its aims and objects, and had been incited to deeds of violence by their leaders, who had managed to ecape from the country, Ih!aving thenl to bear the responsibility and the punishment of their inideeds. A number of them stated that they had been compelled to join the order to save themselves and families from visitations of the Klan ; others had entered its ranks under the snpposi. tion that it was a society organized for mutual protection, but lea.ue(l subsequently that its real designs were the extermination of the negro race sad the driving out of such of the whites as were in favor of the political equality and social elevation of the blacks. These severally expressed the heartiest contrition of their mis deeds, and stated that the organiza. tion was, one inimicnl to the best in terests of society, and that the gov. ernment was fully justifled in break ing it up. In further extenuation of having been members of the order, they stated that the operations of the Ku Klux Klan were wide spread, em bracing within its folds men of supe rior intelligence whom they had been accustomed to look to for advice and counsel, and whom they did not sup. pose would lead them into any combi nations that contemplated personal violence and even murder, if these were necessary for the accomplhsh ment of its ends. They were told that it was a good institution to put down meanness in the country, and they accepted the statement implicit.. ly. UTpwards of forty examinations were made in the manner above inldicated, neither prisonler knowing that any one but himself had been called out, and none of theta being aware as before observed of my offi cial position or the object of my visit. There was a singular unanimity in their statements end a general expres sion of regret that they shIould have been drawn into any organization dif fering so entirely in the objeet which they supposed it had in view when they joined it. In reply to the gen eral question, What were the ohjects of the orgranizatin? the answr wa almost invariably~ hen we joined the order, we u" td It to be a society establiehed utual protec tion, bi aftewha n fully ini tiatdtd disoverod i for a politi cal pnrp We,' .whie use was em braeed ' an oath, ich we swore to oppose the Radioq , arty in all its forms and prevoit neg ocs from vot ing.

In those to which I intend re.psctfully to c.ill your attention, the prisonears appear not only truly repentant, but abso lutely ashamed of tha dburse t' hich they seemi to have ur1wittingly pur sued ; they express thehtselves.ua anx ious to return to the". peaceful pur. suits of industry whenev ,the oppor tut.ity is o)l,red them, an+to become law abiding citizens in their respoo' tive comwui ities. - o'ulunel Whitley then named four' persons safely to be ea zsidored as pr:.pe"r sub.cot, f t.. S t of fb ecutive eleuvency. They are old men, poor and unliarned, and' were un doubtedly lcdsitto the K&Klux oder by misrepresontatioun. With rcgard'to others, should it I.e the intention of .the U.overnagent to make an , e*tended- exercise of its clemency in that direction he submiits the n,amlies of eighteen persons whom he dectns most worthy of its considera tion. As to the remainder of the prison ers who entered the IKu Elux order with a full kn'vledge of its real ib. ject, Colonel Whitley says it would not he entirely expedient to exercise the Executive clemency.

What lamdy is used to war ? Millie Tary. . llubbard on a Raltid. We stated in our last issue that the cavalry from this post had gone out on a raid and had not returned up to the hour of our going to press. The command cane back to town on Wed nesday without any prisoners. It seems that Deputy United States Marshal Ilubbard had been out in the Turkey Creek neighbo:hood for a week or ten days previous, concealed among the negroes, and thought that he had spotted the haulnts of certain men in that section whom the authori ties are very anxious to get hold of. lie sent word on Tuesday for the cavalry to come to his ussi.tance and that he could inako the arrests that night. The cavalry were, therefore, out as a auxilliary force to the Depn. ty Mlarshal, and not as an ind-epil cut connmand. Fromt respectable and reliable gen tlen,a we get information of the m11ost wanton and unprovoked outrages cummitted by Hubbard and his gang of negro :ts istants while pretendin to net in the di'charge of his duty. The premises of Mr. B. B. Robins were among tie fir,t searched. Ilis children are all daughters-two of. whom are married-ono to William Carter, the other to Ferris. Both of these men are avoiding arrestr, and their families are living near the residenice of Mr. Robini, atnd t.ner his protection. Mr. Robins informs us that his premises had been search ud eleven times before by the military authoritioo and that ho had always been treatud with res pcet and with 1 at'y n e;.:ary i.(ig;itp til! Hubbard made his appearance ; that he (Hubbard) seemed to gloat over the opportunity to insult women, ter rify children and expend some of his -alien against the respectable white peoplo of the State. The door of Mrs. Ferris' house was violently burst len and the lock broke by him, when she was in a few feet of the ior, (ffering him the key and asking that the door be not broken down. Whea this piece of unneCess.Iry bru talir,y was aceomplisheil and she ap pealed to hitm for redress, the only Ieply site received was an insult. The bed clothes were stripped from a sick child lying in a trnile bed, and the bed rolled violently about the room under the pretense of searching in and under the bed for a concealed Ku Klux. Thee acts are fair samt ples of tIe ..v:ay this hcroie tmarshal carries ou the war againt t women and i;ildren. Anotber place vi'ited was the +ntation of William Carter, which rentod'b,y two young met, Ca lvin calk and Georgo (arter. IBoth of epo men were absent from home on it e night of the raid. Their touse wits broken into and searched ; and when they returned home in the morning they found that seven quilts, uur countorpanes, three pair. of pan. loons and three vests had been ,land carried off.

B. Robins, apd tiatgentlemani being away from home, they attempttedl to go into his yard. Whleonordlered by his dauighter not to do so, thesy itnsulted her and levelled heir guns at her.

In justice to Lieutenant E. S. God. frey, wh-, was in command of the cav alry, and whom we know and respect as a gentleman, we are assured by our informants that the soldiers had nothing to do with the breaking open of doors, throwing sick children about, etc., etc. Lieutenant Godfrey we are sure would neither do anything of this kind himself, nor would he suffer it to be (lone by any one under his con .inand. Ilubbard was in cominand of the expedition-the cavalry were only along so as to give the civil authori ties aFsistanco in caso any should be needed-and upon Hubbard rcts the whole responsibility for everything that was done.-Chester /'<p,r,r". Seriots Accitient. It was with very great regret, says the Chester Reporter, that we heard on Saturday last of the serious ace. dent that happened to Mr. Samuel M. McDill on the day previous. Ie was having a well dug on his farm, and wasabout to descend for the purpose of seeing what progress the workmen were makinr;. When ho put his weight on the rope the knot slipped and ho full to the bottom of the well a distance of thirty-six feet. lIb was brought out in an uneon.ecious condi tiou and continued so for several hours. 11n~ eV,-i i.:u:i nio )_. iie _._ uro tdhnd 'roken, though he was se riously cut and bruised on the back and shoulders. It was feared that se. riouts internal injuries might be expe rienced. At tie time of his lall there were two men at the bottom of the well, neither of whom were hurt. The "old sixth" had no more gal lant soldier than Mr. McDill. For four years he ioilowcd tho fortunes of' that famous band, showing in all of its bloody battles, being ever in the front when ,here was i !oe to face, and yet providentially e.caping withoit, ececiviug the slightest wound. IllS old comrades in arms will extend to him an earnest sympathy in his amie tion, and will j"in in t be hope of his speedy restoration to health and strength. We learn from gentlemen who came dow n from York on 'T'uescda v, smys the Chester Reporter, that tho Republicans of that (ounity held their nominating convention ou Monday last. Sixty delegites were in attend ance. 01n the first ballot for a nomi.. nec for the position of Senator, each delegate voted for himself, n> one can didate getting as many as two vo!es.
