Tue Gatlieilng of Ex-Car oil mi Buzzards. Washingtgn, June 21.?The gather? ing of ex-carpet-baggers from South Carolina at the Chicago Convention par? took of the nature of a genuine love feast. Ex-Collector Worthington, of Charles? ton, delights to tell a story, even though it be against himself, and the other even in;? he was describing the flock of buz? zards with great gusto. Of course he said there were the members of the dele? gation, all looking hearty and fat. Cor bin, Taft, Tom Johnson, Brayton and the smaller fry, Postmasters Boone and Whittemore with their crowd of darkies. Even the disposition of the petty honors of the Convention brought about a divis? ion of sentiment, and a lively discussion was inaugurated!. A parlor in the Sher? man House wa s secured for the use of the delegation, and they resolved them? selves into a caucus, appointed a sergeant at-arms and balloted for the position of chairman of the delegation. Deas made a speech which could be heard all over the hotel favoring the selection of Bray? ton for this honor, and bis howls attract? ed the attention of the guests of the hotel. Crowds gathered at the door leading into the room occupied by the delegation, and many present thought at one time that it; would be necessary to invoke the aid of the police to quell an anticipated riot. Five hours were devo? ted to the consideration ot the momen? tous questions effecting the delegation, and the flight narrowed down to one between Smalls, who supported Corbin against Brayton, the latter succeeding as chairman by voting for himself. More fan was created by the attitude of the delegation towards Frank Moses when he visited cheni at their hotel and endeavored to be friendly with his old associates. From their actions it would never have been supposed that any of them had ever seen the inside of a jail, for they endeavored to give the ex-Gov? ernor of South Carolina the cold shoul? der after the most approved style. Poor Frank was badly cut up at such shabby treatment, and almost wept as be bewail? ed the actions of his old cronies. Sam Lee, pitying his situation, gave the ex Governor a ticket of admission to the stage of the Convention, which was promptly disposed of for a cash consider atioo, and Moses did not again turn up. Moses looked tbin and feeble, but was as clean and neat in his person as ever. He told a sympathizer that the action of his former friends was the cruelest stab that he had ever received. L. Case Carpenter was also on hand, but from Colorado, and although with the Elaine men he was not a supporter of the Plumed Knight. Chamberlain was expected bat did not come, as he was among the Independents and could not be chosen from New York where he is now located, and his old associates do uot take much stock in him. Among others present was Jim Thompson, for? merly of the Union-Herald; for the Radi? cals one week, and the Democrats the next, thus alternating his politics. Nagle was on hand looking as tat as a pig, but he seemed grieved that Frank Moses did not recognize him, especially as he called to mind the many judgments standing against him as endorser of the notes of the ex-Governor. Ex-Senator Patterson was conspicuous for his absence and a great many inquir? ies were made for him. Comparing notes as to old times and acquaintances was the favorite pastime of the gathering, as well as referring to the fate of old comrades. Wilson Cook entertained a select circle v> ith a story of how he scared Leslie at Topeka, Kansas, some years ago by slapping him on the back and saying, "You are my prisoner, sir." Leslie thought Cook had the necessary papers for him, and he plead with Cook for mercy with tears in his eyes. Finally he consented to "set 'em up," when told that it was only in fun. Some one referred to ex-Senator Patter? son's running in the ground a street rail? road at Baltimore, and leaving the stock? holders the ties and a yard full of boxes when he got through. Another had seen Hardy Solomon selling bread at Kansas City, and so it went on. "Ob, it was rieb, I can assure yon;" "it was good to hear the boys talk," said the ex ' collector.?Special Dispatch to the Sunday News. From the Chicago Herald, June 5. Armed with an order from the sheriff, a J7cr?Wreporteryesterday presented him? self at the jail to see "Dr. Warren," otherwise ex-Governor Franklin JT. Moses, of South-Carolina. After a little waiting he was conducted to "Dr. War? ren's*' cell. The "Doctor" sat in the door with a big tin cup of coffee before him. A slender figure in shirtsleeves; a splen? did head of silver gray hair, cut with a "bang" and parted in the middle; an aristocratic face, a keen blue eye, a large nose, a gray beard of perhaps two weeks' growth?otherwise facial and personal neatness?made up the picture. The Herald man recognized his victim at the first glance and extended his hand through the bars. "Frank, how are you?" , The ex Governor looked a moment in bewilderment, and then a pained look came over.his face. "My G?," he said, "is this yon ?" Thirteen years ago the Herald repre? sentative, then connected with a New York paper, had represented that journal at two sessions of the South Carolina Legislature. Franklin J. Moses at the first session was Speaker of the Assembly and the avowed candidate for Governor to succeed the carpet-bag Governor, R. K. Scott, of Ohio. Moses was elected Governor to succeed Scott, and held the office three years. He was a power in the South. Young, brilliant, unscrupu? lous, he wielded a terrible power for mischief. He was not a carpet-bagger. He and his father and his grandfather were born on Palmetto soil. His family were among the most respected in South Carolina. They lived at Sumter. Frank, the son, and afterward the Chief Justice, the father, joined the carpet-baggers. The old man tried to do what was right in the electoral contest of 1876, and in a measure redeemed himself, but for Frank, the Governor, who bad consorted with carpet-bag and negro thieves both in the State Government and Legislature, there was no forgiveness. When Hamp? ton came to be Governor, Moses, the carpet-baggers and the vultures generally fled like thieves at the sound of a police? man's rattle. When "Dr. Warren" had recovered his surprise at meeting an old South Carolina acquaintance, his first question was: "Are you still a newspaper man ?" and his next imploring words were: "Now don't make this any worse than it is!" . The Herald man smiled at the thought that such a fall could be any worse, but he promised uot to refer to the "Doctor's" present troubles. "I only wanted," hi said; "to know if you were the real and > genuine Frank Moses?" "Yes ; here I am," said the ex Gover? nor. ;<It is a different position from thit you first saw me in, but don't tiiink too hard of it. I ain't all bad, nor am I wholly without hope. I doo't ask any old friend to trust me. I recognize the disgrace of it all. I must fight my own battle, and just now fate seems rather hard. Now, please don't tear me all to piece?, will you ?" The tone with which this was said would move an obelisk from I its base. The Herald man replied that he cared nothing for the ex Governor's troubles in a newspaper sense. He did want to recall old times and ask after old acquaintances during the good old days of pelf and plunder in the Palmetto State. "What, for instauce, has become of Governor Scott ?" he asked by way of starting the conversation. The "Doctor" looked a minute through his bars as if engaged in a work of in? trospection. "Oh, yes; Scott,''he said. "Well he's down at Napoleon, Ohio. He got out of that murder scrape by paying handsomely the widow of his victim. When he did that the jury called it an 'accident.' Oh, Scott acted honorably in tbat as he always did in everything." "And Cardozo?" pursued the reporter. "Cardozo is a Spanish mulatto, and is sharper than chain lightning. He was convicted of mal? feasance and bribery, was pardoned by Hampton, and is now a clerk in the treasury department at Washington, and is one of the best clerks there. Been promoted three or four times. You know he always was the best accountant we had there. If ever I wanted a correct statement of anything I relied on Cardo? zo." Here the ex-Governor allowed himself to wander off into retrospect. He stretched his legs and seemed to forget his surroundings. "Tell you who I met the other day," he said, "at the Palmer House. Dr. Neagle?remember him? Comptroller, you know, under Scott and under me. Well, sir, Neagle came up to me and say3, 'Hello, Governor.' Now between you and me that was not my title just then, and I looked at him hard. Then he says, 'Frank, don't you know me?' Well, I didn't though Neagle and I were like brothers years ago. Then he told me his name, and I almost fell in his arms. Neagle has changed so nobody would know him. Grown stout and gray, and rather decrepid. Tim Hurley?you remember Tim. Tim has gone to Europe. Tim was a jolly Irishman who came down there when I was Speaker, got in? to the riog and made money. Tim was going to play it fine. He was going in for 'home improvements' and to become a citizen of the soil. He stole through the lobby and tried to curry favor with the home people by buying city lots. It didn't work. Poor Tim. He had a suburb off Columbia called 'Hurley ville.' I guess it's been sold for taxes a dozen times. Tim has gone to Europe. No? body knows whether he is rich or not, but I guess he saved enough out of the general wreck to make himself comforta? ble. "Remember Parker, the treasurer ?" "Yes." "Well, Parker is in Philadel? phia?rich, I believe. He and 'Honest' John Patterson always trained together. Patterson is in New York. His lamous epigram, 'Five years of good stealing yet in South Carolina/ did not come true. "Remember John Dennis?" "Yes." "Well," said tho ex-Governor, "Dennis is at Yankton, D. T., has a big business there, and is rich, of course. Cass Car? penter, the carpet bag editor, is in Den? ver?be was a sneak," Frank added, with bitterness. "Old Dick Carpenter, the Judge; let's see, I don't know where he is living. I saw him here at the Conven? tion, but I dodged him," the ex-Gover? nor said, with a laugh. "Worthiogton, the old collector at Charleston, is a clerk iu Washington.- He was here at the Convention. So is Woodruff? remember him ??the scoundrel that turned State's evidence on us all and got into jail him? self??he is a Washington clerk. "Some? times," said the ex-Governor, with a bitter smile, "I think it would have been better for me if I had gone to Washing? ton and got a clerkship. People call me a thief because I was Governor of South Carolina in a corrupt era, but I want to say right now that the bulk of the steal? ing, the horrible crimes in legislation, the awful corruption and defiance of de? cency, Which ran South Carolina's debt to $22,000,000 was before I came into the Governorship. I had nothing to do with Scott and Parker and John Patterson and their New York man, Kimpton. They were the ones tbat piled the debt up. I was reckless no doubt. I used to buy niggers for $2 to do anything I wanted done when I was Speaker of the Assem? bly, and I got the money to do it with from this gang, but bow they were steal? ing was never revealed to me. I wanted to Oe Governor. It wsb a pride?a per? sonal and family pride. I saw there was but one way?make myself popular with the niggers. I did it. I flattered some, associated with others, ont bought a great many more. It was all wrong, I know. My life was ruined. I was made an out? cast. I did not dare even to go back to Sumter. I had to meet my own father even in secret. I am now an outcast, a miserable, wretched jail-bird, but even with that feeling I can see my errors and blame nobody but myself. I say?(this with the old pleading look) don't be too hard on me, now, will you ?" "Time's up," said the genial deputy at this juncture, "and I want my lunch." The Herald man, had, therefore, to bid the ex-Governor of South Carolina adieu for the time. Ex-Governor Moses, alias "Dr. War? ren," is in the Chicago jail for obtaining ?25 from one local physician and $17 from another on bogus checks. The two physicians say that they mean to prose? cute him to the full extent of the law. He has been committed for trial and seems to be utterly friendless. His wife is in this city, but it is said she and her family will have nothing to do with him. A Political Side Issue. Chicago, June 20.?At the afternoon session of the American prohibition convention, a platform was adopted which declares that the God of the Chris? tian scriptures is the author of civil gov? ernment; favors the use of Bibles in schools; asserts that God requires and man needs the Sabbath; demands strict prohibition laws; the withdrawal of all charters to secret lodges, and that their oaths be prohibited by law; opposes prison and imported contract labor; favors a revision of the patent laws ; pledges the party to vote for womeu suff? rage; asserts that the civil equality granted by the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments should be extended to the Indians and Chinamen; that internation? al differences should be settled by arbi? tration ; that land and other monopolies I should be discouraged; that the govern i ment should furnish a sound curreucy; that the tariff should be reduced as fast ? as the necessary revenue and vested j busiuess interests will allow ; that polyg? amy should at once be suppressed, and that the Republican party is censurable for the long neglect of its duty in respect to this evil, and demands a direct vote for President and Vice-President of tho United States. The preamble- adopted by the National Christian association, in 1875, was also adopted. The convention then proceeded to a nomination for Pres? ident of the United States. S. C. Pome roy, of Kansas, Governor St. John, of the same State, and Rev. J. Blancbard, of Illinois, were named. Of the 77 votes cast, Pomeroy received 72, and the nom? ination was made unanimous. For Vice President, J. A. Conant, of Connecticut, was nominated by acclamation. ? In some sections of Abbeville the oat cops are good, but upon an average, they are not abundant. It is thought by observant citizens that there will be none of this grain which should be shipped. It will be required to feed stock and to seed the ground for another crop. The price which the merchants will be enabled to offer will not be an induce- j ment to sell now. I THE LATEST COUNTERFEIT, Glass Dimes That King Like Silver. "That's no good," said the clerk, in the presence of a reporter, as he shoved a 10-cent piece back across the counter of a Broadway restaurant. "Yes, it is," said the man, who picked it up aud again laid it down., ringing it as he did so. The man behind the counter picked the token up, laid one edge of it on the counter, holding his thumb and fore? finger on the other and, with a quick pressure, broke it in two iu a nearly straight line, which left about two even halves. The man looked on in stupid aston'-Lment and picked up one of the pieces. The broken edge did not look like glass, but its texture showed readily that it was friable and not malleable. "Now I'll show you," said the man, as be picked up a little hammer and gave the half lying on the couuter a couple of quick whacks. It was pulverized as if it bad been hammered in a mortar, and showed only bits of brittle, broken sub? stances, glass-like in all respects except color. The particles were a dead lead color, and the still unbroken half showed a date of 1855, indicating that the coun? terfeiters bad, on account of its dead color, decided to take an old instead of a recent date. These coins have been made to weigh and ring so like silver that it is impos? sible to tell to what extent they have been circulated, and doubtless many have passed through many hands with? out having created any suspicion. Mar kera Bros.' who handle enormous quan? tities of silver of all sorts, said they had seen two samples. The coins are made in all grades, and the samples they saw were both standard dollars. One of the brokers was trailing a fistful of dollars from one hand to the other when his eye caught the milled edge of the coin, which looked thicker than its predeces? sors and successors. Picking it out, he found that the milling was not quite so distinct as it should be, and the coin had a dead look, but answered correctly to the touch. He threw it out aud refused to take it, returning it to his customer. A few days afterward a man came in with a similar coin, ouly that it was al? ready broken iu two pieces, which fell apart as the stack of coin rippled over bis finger ends. The edges looked like those of a lump of mica, or sheeded isin? glass, as tbey are found by geological field hunters. That there was glass in it be could only guess, and has never met any one who could suggest a method by which base metal could Le combined with glass so as to give a true weight and the right ring. The glass is evidently intended to make the ring correct, and yet it must be thoroughly mixed with the metal or it could not be broken with the pressure of a thumb. The secrets of the counterfeiters are not known to the smelters nor are they to the glass-work? ers, and neither can understand how there can be au amalgamation or fusing. The bad metal, according to that, must be some comparatively new discovery. Glass weighs only one-tenth that of sil? ver, and no base metals approach the weight of silver, so that all are puzzled. ?New York Letter. The Roar For Cleveland. Washington, June 20.?The feeling among the Democrats here in favor of Governor Cleveland is very strong. Not a few Democratic Congressmen express the opinion that the Chicago Convention will be scarcely more thau a formal rati? fication of the nomination of Cleveland. Unless something occurs meantime to check the Cleveland swell, it is believed that he will be nominated practically by acclamation, and that the Convention will complete its work in one day. So strong is this impression iu the minds of some that several Senators who had in? tended going to Chicago, to-day declared it not worth while to take the trip, sim? ply to join in one hurrah and then dis? perse. Georgia, Michigan and Maine have chosen Cleveland delegations to Chicago, and even some of those who antagonized the Governor at the recent New York Convention have fallen into line for him. Senator Brown, of Georgia, says it looks as if Cleveland would be the man. Georgia has disappointed the Bayard men. In the estimates of the probable strength of the Delaware Senator Geor? gia was counted for a number of votes, but the Convention, while not instructing for anybody, clearly indicated a prefer? ence for Cleveland. The friends of Bayard and of McDon? ald also now acknowledge that neither of them will stand any chance whatever if the New York delegation shall deter? mine to support Cleveland. If that del? egation should refuse to back the Gover? nor, then it will be a free-for all fight. Friends of Mr. Morrison now urge him 6trongly for second place on the ticket with Cleveland. They say it will be necessary to have a Union soldier from the West if Cleveland shall be nominat? ed. Congressman Theodore Lyman says that the probable decision of the- Inde? pendents in Massachusetts will be to vote the Republican State ticket with the Democratic electors at the head provided that the Democratic nominations at Chicago are acceptable. The chairman of the Democratic dele? gation to Chicago from Virginia is re Sorted this morning a* saying that that t?te will probably vote for Cleveland. This would be a gain. King's Mountain and Cowpens. A recent visitor to the battlefields of King's Mountain and the Cowpens, in South Carolina, reports that the monu? ments placed there many years ago are ruined by relic-huuters. The facing of the Cowpens monument, "Erected by the Washington Light Infantry of Charles? ton in 1856," is nearly all gone; the ground has grown up to forest, and soon there will be nothing to mark the spot where one of the most important events of our Revolutionary history took place. A monument in honor of Morgan's vic? tory has been erected by Congress and the State of South Carolina, assisted by other States, at Spartanburg, sixteen miles distant, but this cannot identify the place where the battle occurred. On the King's Mountain battlefield there is a monument, placed there at the time of the Centennial celebration in October, 1880, which is untouched by the spoilers as yet, and is likely to be, as it is of rough granite at the base and of such size as to repel the inclination to chip off keepsake pieces, but the Ferguson-Chron? icle monument, erected where Ferguson, the British commander, and Chronicle, Boyd and ether Americans killed in the battle were buried, is so far destroyed as to be worthless as a monument. The in? scription on neither side can be read, and the face of one side is nearly all of it hacked off and carried away. Surely here is a little patriotic work for the South Carolina Historical Society or the Washington Light Infantry, or both," to do in preserving for all lime these two interesting spots of our Revolutionary history. No doubt Congress would lend a helping hand, as it hns in so many sim? ilar instances? Baltimore Day. ? Cleveland's acknowledged lead for the Democratic nomination has combined the friends of all the other candidates in an attempt to break the popular current which has set in his favor. New York congressmen say the reports of disaffec? tion toward him in their State are gross? ly exaggerated and ridicule the statement that he cannot carry New York. By unprejudiced observers of the situation he is s. ill regarded ay the probable nomi? nee, and of his presentation to the con? vention as New York's candidate no reasonable doubt is entertained. The two Logans. John A. Logan, candidate for Vice President, professes to be the special friend and champion of the colored peo? ple, and the Memphis Appeal has taken the trouble to hunt up his record. The result will be somewhat surprising to the colored voters that be now courls and flatters, aud the colored man who studies it will be apt to hesitate before giving this arch demagogue and time server his support. Logan voted in 184S for a constitution? al provision prohibiting any negro or mulatto from settling in the Slate of Illi? nois. He also voted in favor of a con? stitutional provision to exclude negroes from the right of suffrage or the right to hold office. But this is not all. Logan was a member of the Illinois legislature in 1853, and as a member of the judicia? ry committee, he reported the following bill: If a negro or mulatto, bond or free, shall hereafter come into this State and remain ten days with the evident inten? tion of residing in the same every such negro or mulatto shall be deemed guilty of a high misdemeanor, and for the first offense shall be fined the sum of $50. If such negro or mulatto shall be found guilty, and the tine assessed be not paid forthwith to the justice of the peace before whom the proceedings were had, it shall be the duty of said justice to commit said negro or mulatto to the custody of the sheriff, or otherwise keep him, ber or them in custody; and said justice shall forthwith advertise said negro or mulatto, and on the day and at the time and place mentioned in said ad? vertisement the said justice shall, at pub? lic auction, proceed to sell said negro or mulatto to any person or persons, who will pay such fine and costs for the short? est time; and said purchaser shall have the right to compel said negro or mulat? to to work for and serve out said time. If said negro or mulatto shall not within ten days after the expiration of his, her or their time of service, as aforesaid, leave the State, he, she or they shall be liable to a second prosecution, in which the penalty to be inflicted shall be $100, and so on for every subsequent offense the penalty shall be increased $50 over and above the last penalty. He drew up this bill; he reported it to the house, and he advocated it on the floor. It whs his bill, and it became a law, and remained a law until 1865. The records of the Illinois legislature establish all we have stated. It is there? in printed that Logan was before the war the most bitter and unscrupulous enemy of the colored race that could be found in the country. He hesitated at nothing. If a colored man came into the free State of Illinoisphe wanted him sold into sla? very if he could not pay a series of heavy fines. The most cruel and arbitra? ry measures were the measures he pre? ferred in the cases of negroes or mulat toes found in the State. And tlm man is John A. Logan. It is the same man tbat is now seeking the votes of colored men, on the ground tbat he has been their best and truest friend. The bare truth is, he is the same Logan at heart tbat he was in 1853, and if he was in earnest then he is a hypocrite now. The printed records of tho Illinois legislature leave no doubt of his desire at that time to persecute any colored man that came within the bounds of the State. The Corruption Fund. Washington, June 19.?One mission of the Republican party has been to teach the use of money in politics. Dorsey's new two dollar bills carried Indiana and elected Garfield. Arthur eulogised "soap" as the most potent weapon in political warfare. Jay Hubbell was the most advanced tactician in this line and devised the famous death warrant ciicu lars by which hundreds of thousands of dollars were wrung from government employes for the last congressional cam? paign. It has become the fashion of late for Republican leaders in Congress to decry the use of money in elections and to denounce the good old assessment plan. Some of them have gone to the point of denying tbat such extortions were ever made. More than once this bare-faced assertion has fallen from Re? publican Congressmen on the floor of the house. The old blackmail methods have been fully exposed and abandoned but it must not be supposed on this ac? count that the Republicans will not have an ample campaign fund. They are compelled to bestir themselves with unusual vigor because most of the liberal campaign contributors were wedded to Arthur's cause and are offended at Blaine's nomination. The sources which responded most liberally in 38SO cannot be relied on this year. Wall street is averse to Blaine. Gould may help him out, but not to the extent be aided Gar field when he gave $100,000 and arranged for the appointment of Stanley Matthews to the supreme court. The horde of officeholders is to be depended on for the bulk of the fund for this campaign. The Blaine clubs which are being organized all over the country are to act as collect ing societies. Circulars are now being prepared at the Republican headquarters in Washington to be printed by the thousand and sent to every official urging him to special interest in the approaching campaign. These circulars will not be couched in the stern language of the Hubbell levy but will be so worded as to make the impression that it is best for the federal officeholders to "aute." Blaine's plan is to make a vigorous cam? paign in every State which can be con? sidered doubtful, and into these States the corruption fund is to be poured. The more doubtful the Slate the more money it will receive. With all the restrictions of the so called civil service, and with the additional legislation on the question of campaign assessments, it is impossible to prevent the accumulation of a great fund to buy votes for the Republican party. Its managers know how to get money and they will have it. They elected the last presidential ticket with money and meau to try to elect Blaine and Logan by the same means. ? Last week tho Pickens corre?poi> dent of the Greenville News stated that Major Lewis R. Redmond was in a dying condition and would Hoon pass away. The same report reached us and we wroie and bad set up the rumor as we had heard it, but before going to press we met John L. Gravely, Esq., who lives within one and a half miles of Redmond and enquired of him as to the truth of the report. Mr. Gravely informed us that there was no foundation for the re? port ; that he had seen him only the evening before and that he (Redmond) said he thought his health was slowly but gradually improving. We are glad to be able to make this correction on such good authority as Mr. Gravely.? Pickens Sentinel. ? Bread ought to be cheap. It is computed that over 00,000,000 bushels of last year's crop remain. The crop of this year is enormous, almost, if not 3uile, unprecedented, while the foreign emand grows beautifully les*. If bread be not cheap, it is the fault of grain gamblers and not of Nature. Sugar is another necessity that ought to be low in price. The supply of various kinds is immense. The Springfield Republican says the price in Glasgow is five cents a pound, while a Glasgow grocer bids for custom by offering tea at the usual price and throwing in the sugar. ? Mr. A. J.

A few days ago a mau giviug the Dame of Dr. Warren, of Philadelphia, but af? terwards changing it to James K. Law? rence, of Dover, Del., was arrested in Chicago on a charge of obtaining money by false pretences from two or three physicians of that city. He proves to be the notorious ex Governor Moses, of this State. We take the following from the Chicago Tribune: J. 13. Warren claimed to be a delegate to the late Convention fromTerre Haute. He acted also as a representative of a photographic establishment which en? larges pictures. He secured orders and collected on the same about $700. War? ren entered the office of Dr. J. H. Hol lister and introduced himself as Dr. Morton, from Philadelphia. He chatted pleasantly with the Chicago physician, and before leaving the office asked Dr. Hollister to lend him $25 to help him beck to Philadelphia, when he would promptly forward the money. Dr. Hol? lister soon discovered that he had been duped in lending the money and swore out a warrant for his arrest. Warren was caught and brought before Justice Foote, who continued the case in $500 bail to June 18. While in the armory lock-up Warren was identified by Dr. J. Adams Allen, of No. 125 State street, as the man who beat him out of $17 last week on the representation that he was Dr. Morton, of Philadelphia, and the prisoner was booked on the second charge.

All kinds of PULLEYS AND SHAFTING and MOST IMPROVED CANE MILLS and EVAPORATORS furnished to order. Van Winkle King Cotton Press Has long been before the public, and is too well known to need any further de' t.ption. Its chief points of merits are: It takes very little room, is easily handled, and takes so little power; can be used on all kinds of powers?horse, water or steam. Ginning and packing can all go on at the same time, without interfering with the Gin. A two inch belt will pack a 500 lb. bale of cotton. It saves its cost the lirst season in labor. Read the following. Testimonial: ANi'Knsox, S. C?Mr. John E. Peoples?Sir: The Steam Power Van Winkle Cotton Press bought from you last Fall has given entire satisfaction. I packed bales of cotton weighing ??O to 725 lbs. in live minutes with all ease, using a 4-inch belt and 25 lbs. steam. There did not seem any more strain on the Press than with a 450 lb. bale. For dura? bility, strength, lightness of power, small quantity of steam required, economy of space, I deem it the King of all Cotton Presses ; especially so as the low iprice at which it can be bought for puts it within reach of every man running a steam Gin. In fact I would not be without it for twice its cost. I would advi se all my friends to buy one of Van Winkle's Steam Power Cotton Presses, as you will save its cost in labor in one year. M. A. COBB.

Y., has given satisfaction wherever used. The Saws are made of the best imported steel. The saw shaft is the largest made. An examination of other Gins will convince you it is the most substantially built Gin in use. It never breaks the roll, and therefore does away with the expense of the revolving head, as the secret of making the Gin to prevent its breaking the roll is in the proper shape of the roll-box. Every one should examine the improvements in the Hall Gin made this year, especially the improvement in the Feeder.
