members of both houses. It was asserted of
Mr. Trott that he was an active opponent of
the present system of reconstruction and a warm
supporter of President .Johnson. Mr. Clark is
denounced as having doue bis utmost to break
down and bring into contempt the Republican
party in Charleston, having Mr. Potter and
Mr. Geddings as his chief aide-de-camps aud

JUDGE PLATT AND THE SOUTH CARO
LINA RAILROAD COMPANY.
Edgefleld County, ss.-Tn ro. tho Columbia and
Augu?ta Railroad Company TS. the South Carolina
Railroad Company-Peddon to condemn and as
ECES ecmpen-ation tor lands and right ol' way of
the South Carolin" Railroad Company.
On tho 17ih of December last. I grantod an
order requiring the Clerk ot Edgefield County
to proceed according to tho provisions of the
act of the Genend Assembly (act No. 42) rati?
fied on 22d September. 186'8, to empanel a jury
ot wclve to assess the oompensation to bc
paid by the Columbia and Augusta Railroad
Company to tho South Carolina Railroad Com?
pany tor a way over the Ianda an'l tight of way
of tho latter company, that is to say, first, over
the Jot at Orangeville Sta ion, d-scrib?dasa
lot of ten acres, on which is situated the depot
atsaidstatiou; second, over tho right of way
ot ono hundred feet appurtenant to said Soutn
Carolina Railroad between said Grauitcvillo
Station and the point near Himburg Known os
the Dead Fall; and third, over the lands which
lie outside of the one hundred feet right of
way, bat with,n the two hundred fett claimed
by "said company, at that point; and that in
rendering their verdict the said jury should
discriminate between tbe amounts which
should be ascertained by them for a way over
the said several parcels ?espectively. lu obe?
dience lo such order the clerk did, os ho says,
proceed as directed by said act to sel rei ihe
names of twenty-four disinterested freeholders
of the county, and that on the 81 -t of Decem?
ber last ho drew the names of twelve ot the
said twenty-four lo act as jurors and summon?
ed them to meet at GrauitcviUe on Satuiday,
tba 2d January next followiug; that two ot thc
twelve jurors so summoned tailed tc attend,
and that he made up the proper number by
summoning two others from tho village to act
in their stoad.
' The jury thus empanelled and assembled
wore Bworn by flit, clerk and did proceed to in?
spect the premises, and on tho evening of tho
samo day did rind and render the following
verdict of compensation: 1. For way over lot
at Gronitovillo Station, $50; 2. For way between
Granitevillo Station and Dead Fall, $50; 3. For
way at Doad Fall, $10.
Subsequently thereto, to wit, at the recent
February term of tho Court of Common Fleas
for EJgofield County, the above named defen?
dants moved the court tor an order to set aside
the verdict, the assessment aud all tho pro?
ceedings ol tho jury aforesaid, upon certain
grounds and for certain reasons stated and set
forth in their motion. Both parties appealed
by counsel, and testimonv, both oial ani writ?
ten, was introduced by ooth parties in support
of, and in opposition to, tbe motion. After
hearing all tbe testimony and arguments of
counsel, my mind was led irresistibly to the
conclusion that many of the grounds stated by
defendants for setting aside tho verdict of tbe
jory had been well taken; that in some respects
the proceeding* of both clerk and jury had
been irregular, illegal, in violation of the man?
datory provisions of the act 42 and in disre?
gard bf defendants rights; and could I have
felt assured of my power lo act in the matter,
I should have cutertaiue I the motion, and
Would havo granted the order asked for; but
such power is not conferred upon tho Circuit
Judge by (ho act itself, and I did not foci at
liborcy to os3umo jurisdiction in so important
a matier (unprovided for by law) upon a mere
motion in my law-court But 1 intimated to
defendant's counsel that if they still persisted
iu claiming to havo said verdict sob asido and a
jury empanelled de novo for assessment of
componsa iou, and would present their griev?
ances aud pi eter their request in tho form of
Petition in Equity, declaring that thoy claimed
only a fail trial before the compensttiou jury
(such as the act itself inteudud to secure to
thom), and that they did not purpose to avail
themselves of tho order piayed for by apply?
ing tor anot?cr injunction against tho Colum?
bia and Augusta Railroad Company, thereby
further cotapl?eating this already protracted
coutroverny, I would cntertaiu such petition,
aud would consider tho testimony uow before
me on this motion as thc proper
testimony in such equity proceeding, (ibis
latter suggestion was acceded to by
counsel ou both sides.) But ai the lea ling
attorney and counsel for d?fendants woro not
present aud resided in Ch'ai lesion. I would
wait until they should decide to take or not to
toko tho course above indicated.
Having now waited a uasonablo time, and
no such petition having beeu presented, noth?
ing remains for mo bnt to dismiss the motion
now before me, and in d iing so I am gittd to
know that the injustice ana injuries done to
the South Carolina Railroad Company, alleged
by them, are not irremediable. All such wrong*
can be redressed and righted. The act itself
has provided tho remedy, to wit, by declaring
(section 4; "that from the vcidict so reudorcd.
it shall be the right of either party to appeal
to the first term of tho Circuit Court next en?
suing in tho county " and there, on showing
reasonable grounds for such appeal, the court
will order that the question ot damage and
compensation shall be retried before the rega?
lar court jurv, and by their verdict, it is to bo
presumed, all the wiongs now complained of
will bo righted. It is. therefore, now ordered
that the motion made for setting aside the ver?
dict of tho jury, empanelled by tbe dork in
pursuance of my order of 17th December last,

OUR NE tr PRESIDENT.
Grant's Intense IVegrotsm-H ls Intention
to Monopolize the Patronage of the
Government-Parcelling ont th? Unices
among Personal Friends-The Tenure
of-offlce Bill-Squally Times Expected.
Tho Washington correspondent of tbe Balti?
more Gazette, in speaking of tho views and
policy of President Grant, says :
He means to out-Ile rod Herod in all that
pertains to the torture of tho South-ho means
to go the length of Sumner in ncgroism-but
he designs at the same limo to monopolize the
patronage of the government! Bis imbecilo
CabiiiCt is universally anathematized by the
Radicals; but they ore huid in check b- his
monstrous strides in (he direction of military
despotism over tho whole country, and espe?
cially in the direction of an absolute subjuga?
tion of the Southern States.
The new Executive thought proper to go out?
side of his constitutional duty in recommend?
ing in bia first State paper a ratification of the
Fifteenth amendment. What had he to do
with that business ? Why log in it, except to
assuro the fanatics of the North in advance of
his extremo radical sentiments ? In almost
tho very woids of the letter from this city,
which you published on tho m rniug of the
4th instant, ho gave assuranco in his inaugu?
ral of "protection" to tho carpet-baggers, and
tbe supremacy of the Radicals and negroes of
the South, and even before bis office was or?
ganized a;, the White House, restored, as was
predicted ho would, Torry to his "oonimaud"
in Geo i-ci a, Sheridan to his in Louisiana, and
Revuolds to bis in Texas.
But tho extremist policy in this respect is all
that may be expected by the Radical mag?
nates. The offices must bo giveu to the Presi?
dent's personal friends. lu anahzing his
Cabinet I find not a sn?glo man nominated but
received this distinction for personal favor*
either to him or to his military and personal
friend, General Sherman.
Tho erneute in the cato of Stewart threatens
to break up prematurely tho amicable rula
tions of the great Republican party and utterly
to prevent thc repeal of the Tcnure-of-office act.
The new leader on tho administration sido ol
tbe Senate (tho brother ol' G:neral Sherman)
immediately introduced a bill lo extricate tho
President from his dilemma. You will sec that
it was objected to by air. Sumner, and in such
a tone and manner that indicated buSnoss. I
have not supposed hitherto that the grand
Rtdic.tl Hire-up would occur forVut least three
months, but it now looks as if harmony would
scarcely exist throe days.
I am greatly mistaken if Grant's policy will
prove a success. He will find, after all. flint
his hatred of thc South and admiration of
Sambo will not suffice. The Radical leaders
will fight to the Inst ditch, and sacri?ce "quite
smart," before giving up the spoils. They will
die fleet, and die game.
Chagrin of thc ttfB.ce Seekers.
The politicians have beeD greatly disturbad
by tho m muer iu which President Grant snub?
bed General Carl Schurz yes tcrdttv. na it leaves
them in great doubt ai; to what influence they
are to have in controlling local appointments.
"Senator'' Schurz boldly protested ag ;i:ist ihs
appointments as proposed by the President,
and for his trouble received thc ceusoriug re?
ply, "1 know the people of Missouri butter
tuan you do, Gcueral."
This :j;mplo announcement, it is feared, will
bu applied lo all who atlompt to dictato to the
President in matters of appointment. Another
tearful obstado has bean presented to their
plans for securi**" ^mces. by tbe positive order
that all applications must roach him through
his several secretaries. This denies the poli
tican an opportunity to urge, persona fly, his
claims upon tho President, and to tell him
wbathe has done for his party in tbia:TJuion
League or io that political club. Eaob case
will stand upon its own merits, strippedof the
froth of politics. To-day thero was ai great
rush upon tho President by the carpet-bag
' brigade, nearly every man being armed;with a
packago of papers ho was particularly desirous
tho President should read. His reply to all
was his Cabinet had not yet taken their places,
but when they did they should refer their
papers to them for consideration first, after
which ho would bo pleased to act on them.
Many of these disappointed expectants left the
Executive Mansion blessing tho new Presidont
-"over the leif."
The Army, the Military President and
There is u certain comical worry in the souls
pf Radical politicians iu Washington over Pres?
ident Grant's determination t > have his pri?
vate exccutivo housohold as military as he
wants it, even if ho cannot have the Cabinet of
his choice. Aroiv headquarters have been al?
most literally transported to the White House,
tito grounds of which it is feared may yet b?
turned into a regular military camp. Tho late
Gen ia! of tho Army still has army on tho
brain, and. as bc feels himself perfectly capa?
ble ol handling that branch of the public ser?
vice, might bo well disposed to right matters
by his favorito military method if the civil ma?
chinery to which he is unaccustomed should
work "too long awry. To tono down the
army and lop off some cf its limbs is a
project that linds considerably more favor
among tho politicians than heretofore. Tho
personnel of tho President's official household
tor the present is as follows: Gouoral Portor
will havo charge ot tho matter of making out
appointments; Genera! Badcau will attend, as
heretofore, to the opening of the correspon?
dence; General Babcock will have charge of all
applications for, and matters pertaining to,
appointments to office-all such applications
will bo promptly roforrod to thc several de?
partments; General Dant will have control of
all arrangements for visiting tho President, in?
terviews, presentations and the gen oral charge
of tho reception room-transacting thp busi?
ness of all callers not absolutely necessary to
bo sent to Ibo President.
DUEL IN NEW ORLEANS.
Rifles the Weapons-Three Exchanges
ot Shots-One of the Parties Severely
A duel was fought on the 4th instant, at Mo?
lairo Ridge, near Kew Orleans, between two
well kuowu residents of that city, named Lewis
Lalaurie and Leonard Sewell. The difficulty
originated in an altercation on Carondelet
street, respecting a debt of a former partner
of Mr. Sewell. The challenging parly was Mr.
Laiaurio, and tho weapons selected by his op?
ponent were lilies, with round balls, at fifty
paces. Thc scone on thc grounds is thus de?
scribed by tho Crescent, of the 5'.b :
Arrived on tho ground, Messrs. Manuel
Blasco and Delnsuza ou the part of Mr. La
luuric, aud Messrs. Bernard Avoguo and John
Hancock on the part of Mr. Sewell, eousu lcd
apart to arrange final preliminaries. Tho
weapous selected were ordinary bunting rifles.
Each ono had brought ids own gu i. Every
preparation having boen omplorod, tho sec?
onds tossed tor position. Ibu choice fell to
Mr. La I aurie, wuo necessarily selected tho
side toward Ibo itarttl and ncarest^ho New
Canal, from which dircc*i.on the wn.d was
blowing so heavily that it tvs with d'fuculty
thc seconds ooma koop on their hals. Thc ad?
versaries wcro piaco.l ui position at tho dis?
tance mentioned, both preserving a solf-com
posuro admirable to behold. Tho final in?
structions were then givon to thc principals
hoing to fire between thc words Uro aud toree
the com-mind to bo given: ' Gentlemen, are
you ready ? Eire 1 one, two, throe." The
usual wuruing w.:s given; the words droppod
from tho lips of tho second, and almost simul?
taneously -with the word three Mr. Sewell
tired, missing his aim, Mr. Lataurie's gun not
go.ug uff, as it b id not boen cocked.
No evidence of any disposition toward a re?
conciliation being manifested by Mr. Lalaurie,
the parties were plaacd again in position.
Tho command given as before, Mr. Lalaurie
firing fini and Mr. Sewell immediately altor.
As Mr. Sewell pulled tho trigger of his deadly
weapon a gust of wind struck him full in the
lace, blowing his eye-glasses quite oft his nose
and over his head. Without ado ho quietly
drew from his breast pockat a pair of gold
mounted spectacles, which ho securely fixed
over his eyes. Upon examination by thu se?
conds it was discovered that Mr. Sewelfs trou
sors were perforated in tbe right lee. just be?
low tho kneo, by Mr. Lalaurie'a ball, which
bad, however, respected tho skin.
No appearance of reconciliation being at all
evident, this cool, deliberate, desperate conflict
reached its third stage. The rifles were again
placed in the bandi ot tho antagonists. Fire!
one, two, three, was solemnly repeated by tho
seconds. A flash, a crash, and a death-hke
stillness ensued. For this timo, at least, it
could hardly be possiblo that both had escaped
unscathed. Yot there they stood unmoved add
as fiim us a rock to tho uttur though pleasant
astonishment ot the fow present. Mr. Sawell
was, howevorv observed to raise his foot slight?
ly aud was approached by a friend, who asked
him, "Ate you hil?" "Well I don't know.
Yes, I think I am," answered Mr. ?ewell,
whose sui geom already near, pulled off his
boot and alter examining his foot found that
thc last shot ot Mr. Lalaurie had struk Mr,
Bowell's right foot, the ball entering near the
first joint of the gre it roe> coming out in the
hollow of tho toot opposite the little toe.
The orificas of the entry and exit wore very
large, and indicated the calibre of Mr. ^lau?
rie's rifle to be about sixty-two. Mr. Lalauno
bad received Mr. .sewell's ball in thc left coat
sleeve, almost in line with his breast, the skin
of tho arm being barely scratched by tho mis?
sile. At this juncture the second ot Mr Lalau?
rie walked up to Mr. Sewell, to whom he ten?
dered his band, remarking, "Sir, I am sorry
that this thing has occurred." Mr. Sewell
cordially accepted the proffered hand, and
smilingly answered: "You should have no
cause for sorrow. Your principal has done
very well, making two oxcolluuf line shots."
Aud ibo parties separated.
Mr. Sewell was removed to his residence, No.
212 camp-street, and is now. wo ore happy to
be able to state, progressing finoly. The affair
has caused considerable excitement as both
parties nie so well known iu commercial and
social cheles. Tho gentlemen acting as sec?
onds, also being piominent aud popular man
hero, havo lent an additional interest to this
sanguinary and determined conflict. Thc high?
est praise is accorded the principals for their
sang-froid and imperturbable etlnucss, tho
bahaviorof b nb being Mpukoo of as handsome.
The rem irk made by. Mr. Sewell when he
lost the choice of position, thal "if his antag?
onist knew how to uso his advautago, bo was
a dca I nun; but be hoped be would not shoot
him in thc taue, as in that event a very hand?
some follow would be distigured," is ?Ilustra?
tivo ot this.
Taken all in all, this duel, so deliberately con?
duced ami so dcturmiuodly persisted in, is
ono of the most remarkable that baa occurred
in this cry for years.

Saratoga, in the S ta?e of New York, is one of tbs
most remarkable minorai r?servoirs upon the ra rfu co

alike. In f onie of tho waters, Chloride of Sodium
predominates; iu others, Iodine, Matrnosla, Sulphur,
Chalybeate, kc. Tho beneficial effects of some of
these waters, aa medicinal agents, are known
throughout tho civilized wotld. Probably omi hun?
dred thousand persons visit theso Springs annually.
Many htiudrtd thousand bottles of tho water aro
transported and consumed in the various localities
of tho country.

three times greater" (han tho renowned Seltzer of
Germany; and equally over tho Spas of Bath, Eng?

'Ibe reputation ot this waler is based upon ita
effects in diseases of tbo stomach, liver, bowels,

The value of mineral waters has been prized and

monuji of many harassing disorders. Entangled in
its fogs are the seeds of coughs, colds, and of that
