HOW THE PRESIDER'S AMNESTY PROCLAMATION
IS RECEIVED-ITS ?FFECT UPON MR. DAVIS
mia) CONFEDERATES INQUIRING AS TO THE
PROTECTION IT AFFORD3-GRANT DETERMINED
ON AN HONEST ADMINISTRATION OF THE GOV?
WASHINGTON, December 28.-Tho amnesty
proclamation of President Johnsons received
approvingly by nearly all classes save some
rabid hatera of tho Southern people, who go so
far as to threaten Mr. Johnson with impeach?
ment because of what they term" bis impu?
dence in preventing their indulgence in '?'en?
geance. All enlightened persons admit, of
course, that tho proclamation releases Mr.
Davis and others who were engaged in the
war from further accountability on the charge
of treason. The Ropublicans claim that under
the Fourteenth article of the constitution Mr.
Davis and others aro under disabilities and
cannot be relrased therefrom except by a two
thir is vote of Congress. The Democrats argue
that under the constitution the amnesty pro?
clamation restores political offenders to all the
rights, privileges ani immunities of citizens of
the United States.
A number of distinguished persons have
called upon the President to congratulate and
thank him for his proclamation, and approve
the happy selection of Christmas day for its
promulgation. Among those wha called were
soveial members of the Cabinet, judges of tho
Supreme Court, Congressmen, Genoral Blair,
and many private citizens.
Mr. Davis is urged to surrender himself
again to imprisonment in ordor that he may bs
brought before tho Supreme Court by habeas
corpus, to test fully the effect of thc Presi?
dent's amnesty. It is stated that Mason,
Slided, Benjamin and Breckinridgo have all

the protection which the amnesty affords.

Soma curious revelations are coming out con?
cerning the recent oporation? in Now York
Central, showing what a handsome thing the
Saturday-night-at-eleven-o'cloclt dividend turn?
ed out for those who were in tho secret, and
unew how to keep that secret.
As tho story goes, then, Commodore Van?
derbilt, his two sous-in-law. Horac9 F. Clark,
George Osgood, and some of tho rost of his
immediate family connections, wore, on the
morning of that day, ownois of some fifteon
million dollars worth of stock-that is, about
one-half ef the entire capital stock, which had
been selling during the day at $133 tl3i.
Furthermore, a well known Broadway dry
goods merchant was the lucky holder *bf at
least ten thousand shares, and a promine.it
Democratic politician and Wall-street specula?
tor, nearly related to Mr. Aug. Schell, happen?
ed to have bought ' calla" threo or four days
previously at various ligures, costing him from
$25,000 to $SO,000. Tho rise in the etock after
that clever Saturday night's work thus enabled
the?e several parties to bag from twenty to
thirty per cent, profit. The readers can figure
it up ia dollars and cents for themselves.
The directors generally, it is said, had not
much stock on hand at the limo, aud naturally
enough they feel very bad at havimr thus been
left out in the cold. The ?-.ext time thc Central
has a dividend to declare, they say they will
bc much obliged to tho ComjuoJoro if ho will

BARNWELL COOBTHOUSE, December 17.-We
ore not quite dead hero, and there has been a
fine morning's sport on tho first day ot' the
races of tho Barnwell Jockey Club.
The weather was beautiful-rather cool-but
tbe bright suushino and pretty women warm?
ed every heart and tba race course. Though
rather an impromptu affair, it was quite an ani?
mated scene. The first race wa3 milo boats.
Tho horses entered wore General Hagood'a
sorrel mare. Saluda, wno rau uudcr Miss ?5.
A-h's colors, aud Ur. Angus Faust's
chestnut horse, John Morgan, under Mrs. E.
D-y's colors. Both auimals appeared in
excellent condition when stripped for the race,
and Rood spart was anticipate L The horses
got off well together, and for more than half
a mile contested the race galiautly, when
tho mare bolted (because a rider on a
a gray horse came np suddenly.) It seemed as
if the"horse would have it all bia own way; but
tho rider of tho maro turned her, after tho
bolt, brought her into the track at tho point
sbo bolted, anti with good riding and a hue
burst of speed, rushed her in beyond the dis?
tance stand beforo tho flap: fell. The rider
who rode thc horse, hearing thc mare thunder
ins; behind him, seemed to lose b:s head, and
although be had won thc heat, urged bis horse
al?os alter he had passed the winning post and
ran him, undera strain, full a hali mile beyond;
then recollecting himself be took up anti dis?
mounted before returning to tho stand. Ac
coidiDg to the rules of tbe turf, this ruled him
out ot the race. The maro galloped over the
second mile and took tho purse.
The next race was a single dish of a mile.
For this thero were two entries, Mr. H. \V.
Richardson's chestnut horse Agate, and Mr.
Jem Dimond's roan horse, Kirk. This race
'was beautiful; both bersos got off well, and
from starting to winning post, contested every
inch of ground. It was a line trial ol skill and
speed; the horses wero well riddcu, and it was
a sharp contest from tho word go until tho fl tg
fell. The chestnut won by two lengths, but the
gallant roan lost no reputation m tho glory of
the beautiful Agate.
Tho nest race was a quarter stretch between
General Hagood'a Joo Alica and Mr. P. P.
Brown's Hector. This was a pretty burst of
speed and well contested; short and awoct.
Joe beat Hector a length.
To 6ee the young pt opio tura out in their
poverty to have a day's sport was a pleasant
Eight. Some of the young fellows wlio hayo
gone to work manfully to make cotton bat!
rino turnouts, but generally tho conveyauces
wero carriages, wagons and buggies, drawn by
mute?; yet I doubt much if thete has bcoa ?
happier party, prettier girls, moro dashing
young fellows, and a bettor day's sport any?
where since tho war. Among the handsome
women, we observed tho clogaut and accom?
plished Mrs. C- D-y, of Augusta, who
rodo npou the field well mounted, controlling
her horse with thc cuso and graco of a prac?
ticed equestrienne and well-bred woniao. S'ie
was escorted by Mr. A-A-h, a tail grena?
dier, who rode Iiis uorso like an Arab. We ob?
served, also, with real pleasure, the charming?
ly popular Misses M-n and T-1, of
Charleston; Miss H-d, of Blackville, and
Miss B-r, another interesting rcpresen
tivo of Augusta-all lendiug light and beauty
to tho occasion, lt was a pleasant sight
and I wished moro ot our linc women
and handsome g ris could afford a mount,
to maka tho scoue even moro cheerful anti
gay than it was. I have said nothing about
our Barnwoll girls, because when all are so
well doserving of praise it would bo invidious
to single out any ; their graco an J beauty is
proverbial. Too much praise can not be award?
ed to tho gentlemen who bavo revived tho
Barnwell Jockey Club for the amusement ol tho
day and what we have in prospect to-niorrow.
If I have time and am in tho humor 1 will send

BARNWELL C. H., Deceavoor 19.-Thorn were
threo races to-day; thc first was a half milo
and repeat. Tho entries wero Mr. ll. W. Rich?
ardson's Agate, Mr. Angiu Faust 's John Mor?
gan, and General Hagood'a Little Ella. Thc
latter was evidently not in condition; she
looked as if she liai not becu handled suffi?
ciently and w:ts comparatively rough. Tho
start was a good o.io. Ibo horses bains well in
Imo, whou the word i;go'' waa giren. By acci?
dent John Morgan did not ge: off, Lil tlo Ella
and Aprato spmncr forward, but tho V/ord ?'..a
shouted to come back. Aguie took up. Linie
EUa ran through. This was a sad misfortune
to thc mare, aa silo waa not in condition and
the ruu told against her. Ailer some consul?
tation, in whicii much time was lost, the jud?
ges decided it was uo heat aud the holies wero
ordered again to lbj starting post. This time
L'.cy all got off woli together, and ran in a
heap, Agato ahead, which bo k?.pl throughout,
aud won tho boat in line style. Thc second
heat was run and won by Agate, who took die
purse. The Charleston t:ag ran well,
but ?ko was rut iu nader disadvantage,
and while she did not win thc money, lost
no reputation. The Horgan mado ? good
raco, but wasnot quito fast enough.
Tho next race was a dash of a half mile, be?
tween Ku-Klux, entered by Mr. Ben Martin,
aud Belvidere, entered by lit. Roheit Ashley.
This was a very pretty race. Belvidere was
very restive and spiteful; Ku-Kiux was as quiet
as a lamb. Tho horses got off veil, aud utter
a sharp contest the raco was won hy Ku-Klux.
There was a third raco, a dash of ? hall milo,
between Mr. Fausta Upstart, Mr. P. Brown's
Mero and Mr. Bon Martin's Faouic. Fannie
bolted. . The race was handsomely won bv
The diy was calm, bright and beautiful.
There was a tine turn out and everybody seem?
ed to enjoy themselves to thc utmost." There
was no gambling booths or drinking stands on
the course, and the quiet and order was per?
fect. A notable feature was tho presence of
tho frocd people, who seemed to onjoy Hie
sport as much, if not more, tb-'.ii too whits

Instead of the annual Jockey Club ball,
which (for reasons unavoidable) could not be
given, the Turf festivities terminated this year
most delightfully in a private party given by
Mrs. E-n H--d, tho most charming of
hostesses, ever ready to advance thc enjoy?
ment ot the young people. Had tho ball suc?
ceeded 1 am sure it could not have been moro
enjoyed than tho social gathering of this eve?
Fresh from thc excitement of tho track, tho
ladies ;-nd their escorts entered with all tho
6o/i esprit of our Southern youth into thc plea?
sures of thc dance.
1 must do more than simply say tho party
was pleasant, for it would bo selfish aud unjust
to'.keep all to myself," the softly tinted pic?
ture which that fun-loving crowd presented to
my view. 1 will do my best to describo it, but
I fear it is too bright for the word-paiDting of
aa elderly lady, who has, "lo ! these many
years," hid away illusions of all kinds, crape,
satins and crush roses in dust covered tiunks.
Nevertheless, 1 will make the attempt.
First, my loveliest of little friends, the fair
>oung hostess of tho party, Miss F-y
F-d. How shall I ever describe that match?
less wealth of ha r (it was all her own) which
fell in clusters around tho snowy throat, re?
calling to every eyo which has ever gazed upon
the wonderful "bead of the Beatrice, that gor?
geous hue which only the portraits of tho old
masters exhibit ? Older hearts and wiser
heads have boen turned by lesser ra?
diance than this maiden's, whoso spirituelle
face only reflects her guileless character. Tho
contrast between her cousin and herself, Miss
S-c B-r, of Augusta, only increased tho
charms of each domoisclle. Miss B-, thc
brightest ot brunettes, well understands tho
effects of coleur de rose on a lisso.no figure.
As sho passed near me I silently admired tho
rivalry between the pink on her cheek and tho
pink on her form. Miss S-a M-n, of
Charleston, who in days past a:.d gouo was
welcomed by tho 'gudo folk" of our village,
received tho same greeting her sunny smile
and charming address will always command.
Miss ii-1 T-1, also of Charleston, repre?
sented thc "City by the Sea," ontraticinrrly.
Mrs. D-v, of Augusta, having regained nor
usual vivacity, cheered the hearts ot her many
admirers by her reappearance. The elegant
moire antique and exquisite shimmering blue,
with its rich trimming of cherry, was uideod
truly becoming to the petito figure of Madam.
alias I-n, of Aiken, would have made her
father's heart feel proud, aud ber mother's hps
smilo, could they have seor how universally
their daughter's dovc-tiko eyes stolo into tho
hearts ot tho assembly.
I hesitate whon I ?ndcavor to do justice to
the individual grace and beauty of tue E.iru
well fair sex. . How can I soleot when they all
looked so lovely, and deported themselves so
like well-bred women, as they ever do V What
shall I sav of the glorious black oyes of Miss
J-a B--z ; of Miss M-y ll-u, tho
sprightliest and always in tho dance ; of
Miss Y-a ll-y,' who, although not
dancing, had ever "around her a cuarmed
circle; or of her companion of thc oveniug, Miss
J-a B-n, whoso attire was most be?
comingly finished by tho jauntiest little crim?
son bodice ever worn? Miss A-a A-li,
who raniinds mo invariably of a snow drop,
loo-ked unusually like ono, us she elided into
the room in a dross ol lite loveliest tireen. Miss
E-a O-s, although a timid httlo maiden,
is self-possessed and talks with a dignity many
debutantes might envy. Last, Out not least
ly any means, let mo mention tho Misses
M-y nut! It-a A-h, known by their
friends as "tho roso buds." Cur Barnwell
gent lernen appeared as in ibu "olden limo,"
handsomely dressed and willi polished man?
ners, convincing mo that thc war did no harm
either to their cultivation or their refine?
ment. Besides our own townsmen, I noticed
many gentlemen from Allandale. I venturo to
say tho Charleston and Augusta girls will ad?
mit that they reaped as much real pleasure
from dancing to the music made by our local
band as they ever di 1 at homo.
Ihe next evening 1 spent in a small reunion
at thc residence of Judgo A-li, for tho pu ?
li?se of welcoming to our midst .Miss 1?- y
T-r, of Fort Motto, formerly of Charleston;
and ? must not fail to note tho general cuj'v.
ment of ?his young lady's music. Itfeccuied
that that voice, although not "tenor," ni^ht

large portion of thc soil in Spartanburg is,
perhaps, better calculated to retain manures

thc attention to these fine locations which
their merits demand. Thc important fact,
also, must not bo overlooked, that Spartan?
burg County will, at no very distant day, le
second lo no inland county in the Stale with
regard to her railroad communications. Vu.y
many of theso fine water powers arc in close
proximity to the Spartanburg ?md Union Rail?
road, which is in su'jccsstul operation as lar
west as Spartanbmg C. H. Thc famous
Air Lino Railroad, the completion of which
is now beyond a doubt, is projected
to pass directly through the centre of the
county. Beside this, it is hoped the good
sense of the pooplo of thc State will, at no dis?

mountain passes to Asheville, N. C., thus sc

Added to all this, it is to be observed that

Thrilling Scenes-Painful Incidents
Our English files coataiu a full account of
thclos8of the steamer Hibernia, seven hun?
dred miles from tho Irish coast, horetofore an?
nounced briefly by the cable. Certain passen?
gers who escaped in tho Captain's boat say
that at two o'clock on tho morning of Tuesday,
tho 24th ult., they were awakened by a crash.
Some went te tho cabin, and tho Captain met
them and assured them there was no danger.
Having confidonco ?H him they went to be d.
As the Captain did net appear at breakfast,
however, suspicion was awakened, and short ly
afterwards ho told them to get ready to go into
tho lifo boats. The crew, meanwhile, were
working at the pumps. The gale kept OB in?
creasing, and the water in the ship gradually
When first informed of tho danger in which
they were placed, the passengers manifested
some excitamont. They all felt dopressod. and
those who could weep wept; but as the day
wore on the excitement ?radually subsided,
and during the night of Tuesday it had alto?
gether disappeared. All were porfectly quiot
that night and one or two even slept. They
all had confidence in Captain Munro-bc was
so colloctcd and managed so woll. He fre?
quently came int? the cabin and spoke a cheer?
ing word to everybody. About four o'clock on
Wednesuay morning* it was determined that
thc b .ats should bo launched. Owing to thc
high sea this work was accomplished with
eome difficulty, hut fortunaloly they were all
git down at last. Previous ta launching No. 1
boat tho Captain came to the cabin and told
tho lucVcfj to como oa deck. The water was
then ankle deep in thc saloon. All the lady
cabin passengers wont to thc front of the ves?
sel. There was no hurrying and crushing.
The boats were tillod in thc most orderly way,
each when it had received its complement
shoving off to give place to the next boat. Ono
old woman sturdily rcl'tisod to leave the ship,
being determined not to leave her huahnnd.
but she waa put on board of tho lifeboat by
force. She screamed loudly while being lot
down into tho boat. When tho last passenger
had been got off, Captain Munro, with thc chief
cigineer, came off in tho Inst boat. Tho pas
sougers describe tho capsizing of one boat, and
the labor of tko crew in tho Captain's boat in
bailing out tho water undor the encourage?
ment of tho Captain. At 7} on \Vedncsday
night there w.i3 a great cry or "A sail, a sail I'
Thu Captain ordered lights to bo put up, and
told all th J passengers to shout for thoir lives.
Ali shouted luitily, and un answer was*rcturu
cd from tho Star bf Hope.
Hr. Coe!:?, Sa? Francisco, furnished tho fol?
lowing statement : "The weather on Tuesday,
tho 24th, was very stormy, and a high sea was
running. Whonitwas l'ouud that there was
?\o hope of saving tho vessol five boats were
launched, aud filled with tho passengers and
crew, uuder the superintendence of the Cap?
tain, who throughout displayed thc greatest
coolness and intrepidity. Tho whole of thc
passengers felt fully persuaded that had it not
been for Hie coolness and bravery of the Cap?
tain, who was thc last to leave tho ship, they
would havo Josi their lives. Tho five boats
had only left Ibo ship about fifteen uihutcs
when she wont down, stern foremost. I was
in thc Captain's boat, in which there were, in
all, thirty-three persous.
"Shortly aft' r the ship went down, wo saw
tho chief mate's boat suddenly capsize, but
could render no assistance, as our boat was in
a sinking condition and overloaded at the time.
It was an awful sight to see sonic of those
wiri had been in thc mate's boat struggling iu
Ihe water, and other's clinging to the boat's
keel, and yet be unable to render any assis?
tance. I think that after a timo Lhc bjat was
righted and a few of tho passengers succeeded
in getting iu, but I could not see how many.
"\Ve parted company with tho other boats, and
alter drifting about for about fourteen boura,

constantly batting, we wore picked up by Ino
Star of nope; and I cannot give too much
praise to Captain Talbot and tho other officers
of the ship for their very groat courtesy and
kindness. Tho Star of if apo also ajeked up
the boatswain's boat, in which there wore nine?
teen persons, miking, I think, a total saved of

equally valuable. Atter tuc rag-picker lias

pockets, he goes homo and assorts his wares,
and Iben sometimes makes ano!her round.
The labors begin UBUIII ly at three or lour o'clock

middle of the night, starting at len o'clock.
About Gue or two in the allernoon ?ic gets home.
Thc different articles aro placed in different re?

thc rag-picker foi paper and rags is throe cents
per pound ; ttlass ono cent a pound; for bones,
