PROGRESS OF TSE CUBAN REVOLT
A SPECK OF WAR.
HAVANA, April 17.-La consequence of a docu?
ment issued from New York, signed "Moreles
Lemus," imposing conditions upon Cuban re?
fugees for support of the revolutionary cause,
Dulce has issued a proclamation ordering the
seizure of all property belonging to Lemas,
Leon, Cassanova, Cieneros, Criardo and others.
The journals generally praise the decree of
confiscation. The rebel leader, Adolcers, was
captured and executed at Manzanillo. It is
reported that a schooner, with arms and men,
was captured near the mouth of the Mantarea
River, near tho western end of the island.

TEE DISESTABLISHMENT QUESTION TS THE HOUSE
OF C?MON8. .
LONDON, April 16.-In the Hon so of Com?
mons, to-night, Mr. Gladstone moved that
the House go into committee on the bill for
the disestablishment of the Irish Church.
Newdgate, Conservative, moved as an amend?
ment that the House go into committee six
months from the present day. This mo'ion
was equivalent to an indefinite postponement.
A lively debate followed, during which Et. S
?ytoun, member for Kirkaldy, created a sen?
sation by declaring his objections to that
clause in the bill wi ich provided for the
support of Maynooth College. Mr. Aytoun
is a Liberal, and voted with the majority
in tbe division on March IS, when the bill
passed to Its second reading. His declara?
tion waa followed by a scene of great ex?
citement in the House. Tbe Opposition
cheered repeatedly, and counter cheers and
other interruptions from tho ministerial
benches. When Aytoun ended his remarks the
confusion subsided, and the debate was contin?
ued. The most of the speeches were made by
minor members of the Opposition. At the end
of this discussion, which lasted six hours, Mr.
Gladstone rose and said due care would be
given by the government to the terms of the
* provision mado for Maynooth College. He at?
tributed much of the opposition to the bill to
the power of the clertry in Ireland. That power
had been built up by tho old policy of Eoglaud,
which ha? lately been partially reversed, and
was now about to bo finally and completely
abandoned. He concluded by declaring the
success of his bill was not a question of party
but of justice.
Mr. Disraeli followed. He disapproved of a
division on Mr. Newdgate's motion for post
poDcmeot, and said he was anxious to>go into
committee on the bill.
The House dvidod on the original motion to
go into commut?e with the following result:

A Row about Dividing tbe Spoils
Crews Vows Vengeance-Who Wrote
that Famous Letter.
[FROM AN OCCASIONAL CORRESPONDENT.J
C?LCHELA, April 17.
IO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.
There has been a big fuss in the Radical
camp, and from all 1 can gather, it is only tho
beginning of a bigger row.
lt appears that Governor Scott promised the
office of Land Commissioner to Joseph Crews,
one of the white members of the State House
OT Representatives, and then gave tbe office to
C. P. Leslie, tho senator from Barnwell. This,
of course, riled Crews terribly, and be swears
.vengeance against the whole party, vowing
that he will expose their schemes and tricks
siuco they have controlled the government.
Last night Governor Scott sent for Crews
and promised to give him something else if he
would only keep quiet. But Crews would not
be mollified, and cursed the whole establish?
ment right and loft, saying that they had all
well feathered their nests, and that all thc
spoils were given to Northern men. Ho said
he would show them that it was too late to talk
of buying him. It promises to be a very pretty

TBE ENROLLMENT OF NEGRO
Its Effect upon the Peace and Quiet of
the People-A Sensible and Manly Ar?
Wc take the following well-timed and judi?
cious article from the Sumter Watchman :
Anything like tbe enrollment of negro troops
at thiB time, it seems manifest, could not fail
to have a most disastrous effect, both npon the
agricultural interests of the State, and the
peace and quiet of the people. The exciting
elections having passed over, and a veiy per?
ceptible calm having succeeded, and tbere ap?
pearing to be nothing of a special nature be?
fore us to produce disturbance, a very general
hope waa entertained that the laboring ele?
ments of tbe country wo- ' ld be permitted to set?
tle down, with what of zeal ana application the
still conflicting and demoralized condition
would admit of, to thc great and vitally impor?
tant business of cultivating the soil. Our farm?
ers and planters were generally more hopeful
of the efficiency of labor the present year, and
were devoting themselves with an activity and
earnestness snch as we have not witnessod be?
fore Bince the oloso of th* war. As a proof of
this we may point to the almost unequalled
i amonnt of fertilizers which have been and are
' being brought into our midst-to the compara
. ftively small number of idlers now seen, and to
tho spirit which is manifesting itself in coonee
' Ition with thc formation of agricultural associa?
tion s,looking alone to progress and improvment
in developing the material interests of the coun?
But it would be wrong to attempt to conceal
thc fact that this movement toward the or?
ganization of negro troops, or even the forma?
tion of a negro militia, as must, in fact, bo thc
practical result, has created- serious apprehen?
sions in tho minds of our most quiet and less
sensitive citizens. From the very Da turo of
the circumstances now existing, such a move?
ment must breed disturbance t^ a greater or
less extent, and, as a consequence, detract
from our industrial energies. Governor Scott
reiterates his feeling of interest in tbe com?
mon good of "our people," as he calls us, and
especially in tho development of our material
prosperity. Docs not his reason, bis observa?
tion-the history of the past three years-tell
him in language he cannot mistake, that what
he proposes to do must retard both these ? If,
in fact, the effect be not of a more serious nx
ture ? And did there exist, upon tho face of
things in this State, at this time, a show pf
necessity, looking to the preservation of the
peace, for such a movement, there might ap?
pear some consistency in tbe professions of
Governor Scott, with such movement. But it
is notoriously the fact, that at no time since
the inauguration of tbe present State Govern?
ment, so obnoxious to every seuse, feeling and
interest of the whole mass of the intelligence
and worth of the white citizens of the ?State,
has there been a period of general quiet equal
to that which prevails at present. And, if vio?
lence and bloodshed now again occur, wo ask,
?D the name of all truth, at whose door will thc'
responsibility rest ? We ask this in all sober?
ness, and with no leeling but that of depreca?
tion of difficulty in the future.
If, then, we cannot eeo the necessity for this
mustering of the militia, and thc iuevitablo ir?
ritation which must follow, what motive c.;n
we discover, except it be a purpose to continue
to violate and wound the natural sensibilities
of our people-to tyrannize over them b> the
use of tho brute force which the superior num?
ber ot tho negro population affords-to crush
them down, in tact, with the heel of the negro?
Ihn is certainly the tendency of these things,
if it bo not tho purpose. And yet Governor
Scott says, while io the pursuit ot this uow in?
sult, and wrong, and oppression of our people,
of tho existing state of things : "I am not
without hope, however, thHt tboy will gradual?
ly become reconciled to them."
Lf ho really indulges such a hose, it is botter
at once to tell bini that ho has failed entirely
to comprehend the character of our people,
and that his hope is utterly without lounda-1

Thc Triple Alliance"-TUc New Span?

From the latest foreign mails by the Java we
glean the following:
THE "TBTPLE ALLIANCE."
A deputation from Naples presented the
King of Italy with a crown of gold on the anni?
versary of the battle of Novara, fought March
23,1849. After thanking tho deputation, tho
King remarked that Italy was on the eve of
a grave crisis. Never had tho noed of earnest
unity been greater. "Momentous events, from
which will spring the accomplishment of our
wishes, and of the destiny of oar country, aro
at hand." There seems to be no doubt that
the King did make use of these significant
words, and as a Republican conspiracy can
hardly be looked npon as realizing the destiny
of the country, the King is supposed to allude
to the "triple alliance." Tho Emperor Napo?
leon, it is believed, has sold the Pope for Italy's

relations with Southern Germany, has negoti?

longing to that confederation. Prussia, it is
further asserted, will select the approaching
election as an appropriate moment for quar?

Frere-Orban, it is true, comes to Paris with the
most conciliatory views. The Emperor, in an
autograph letter to the King of Belgium, has
convinced that country that in all events its
independence will be carefully respected, and
that he is not ambitious of conquest or an?

is perfectly reassured, and quite willing to
make all suitable concessions to France. Bat
it appears that those concessions are dis?

WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP.
Secretary Fish Abandons his Conserva?
tism-Prompt and Dec in i ve .Uta su rcs
to be Pureucd Toward* Spain-The
Honor i-r the Flag to bo Vindicated.
'a. TruBUiLmuu tuicKioui ur xuuisusy inst,
to the New York Herald, says:
Secretary Fish, after all, seems determined
to pm sue tho correct course in regard to
the protection of tho rights uf American citi?
zens abroad, and particularly respecting those
cases growing out of recent occurrences in the
vicinity of Cuba. While there is no doubt that
he bas expressed heretofore very mookra tc
views, still there is just as little doubt that ho
is determined not to allow tho national honor
to be lowered. While ho does not believe in
hnsiy action in tho absence of fall informa?
tion, yet wheu all the facts are in his posses?
sion and make ont a case calling for a positive
assertion of the national dignity, thero is
reason to believe Mr. Fish will take such
a stand as will satisfy tho most ex?
acting and jealous on the point of na?
tional honor. If tho. reported outrages and
insults to our flag prove to be founded
on facts and are not gross exaggerations, Mr.
Fi.-h will demand reparation promptly. Apply?
ing this to the case of the Lizzie Major, it is
said he will demand that the two passengers
be not only snrrenrered without delay, but
further, that they be placed on board tho
American brig from which they were taken,
or some other American vessel, and that tho
American flag at the same time be saluted by
tho Spanish man-of-war; further, he will de?
mand indemnity for the detention of the pas?
sengers and such losses as may have resulted
from their seizure. It these really bo his in?
tentions, and they are so stated to bo by good
authority, jar. Fish, after all, will only be re?
sponding to tbe popular wish. The Secretary
ot Sute has replied to Captain Campbell's
claim for redress in thc matter of the seizure
of the brig Mary Lowell, stating that the mat?
ter had been made the subject of investigation
before the Admiralty Court, under the demand
of the British Government; bat that whatso?
ever mi?ht be the result thereof, he might rest
assured the United States Government would
protect all tho rights ot its citizens.
Trouble about tho Spanish Mission -
Spicy Interview between General
Sickles and the President.
General Sickles had a spicy interview with
the President on Wednesday.
It appears that whon Sickles dor-lined the
mission to Mexico the President promised him
the mission to Spain, and even went so far OB
t o put his name down for the place. Sickles
went away under the impression that he was
booked for Spain, and gave himself no further
trouble about it. The next lie heard was that
Sanford had been nominated for the place.
Sickles went to tba President for an explana?
tion. The President told bim that when ho
promised him Spain he fully intended to give
it. Sumner, Anthony and a few other senators
had come to him and insisted that Sanford,
who had been removed from Brussels, should
be traustorred to Spain, and they were so im?
portunate that ho could not avoid granting
their request. Sickles (so tho story goes)
wound up by giving the Pr?sidant apiece of
his mind, lhere is great opposition to San?
ford in and out of thc Senate, and thoro arc
some doubts now of bis confirmation. Ho has
been eight years oat of tho country, and dur?
ing all that timo hos hold tho' comfortable
place of Minister at Brussels.

THE CUBAN REVOLUTION.
An Address to the People of thc United
States from thc Agent of tbe Insurgents
-Terrible Scenes in Havana-The
An address published by tho agent of tho
Cubans in this country says that the power of

last October, and that now they have 42,000
men in their army under tho command of C?s?
pedes, general. They claim control of all tbo
interior, amounting to two-thirds of tho island;
and allow the Spaniards only the portB that
they aro able to retain by forts and fleets,
neither of which the rr^'Ttioniets have. Tho

peals to the broadest interpretation of the

A letter to tho New York Tribune, dalod
Havana, April 10, says:
Yesterday we had another bloody scene, and
a brave one. The military authoritioB went
out to execute two mon, and with their accus?
tomed accuracy of aim, shot six or more. Leon
and Madina, tho two Cubans condemned for
taking lead in tho riot of the Puente Chavez
last January, were garroted amid the wildest
disorder. These men had been tried in a re
trular civil court. They were workmen in the
tobacco factory of Figuera, and whon about
the time of the Villanueva and Louvre mas?
sacres, tho police attempted to seize some
arms concealed in the nox*, house, they Balliod
out at the head of a nntnbor of their comrades,
and led on the crowd to oppose the policemen,
several ot who*n were killed in the affray.
These deaths were charged upon the two men,
but were not proved as specially their
doing. It was a question whether their eas J
carno nuder the benefits of the amnesty de?
creed by General Dalco shortly after his arri?
val nore. Tho lawyers of tbe prisoners submit?
ted that the amnesty was written in the morn?
ing before tho affair at the Puente had oc?
curred. Tho officers of the government replied
that it was not in force till its issue in the offi?
cial gazette at four in the day; and so, between
tweedledum and tweedledee, the lives of these
Cubans were spirited off. The trial was fall
and long, and about as' fair as any trial of Cu?
bans by Spaniards can bo at this time. The
general fact is that the execution was political;
the men were not put to death for murder, bat
for treason. A feeble attempt bad been made
to rescue Leon from the law, on tho ground
that he was a citizen of tho United States? bat
it failed from want of proof.
It is usual in Havana to garrote at seven or
eight in tho morning. ThiB time the cmAper?
formance did not bet?n till about eleven. The
suspicion occurs that the authorities desiened
reserving it to so late an hour to give it tne
utmost publicity and effect, whatever might be
the consequences to au excitable and injured
people. A very great crowd, ou foot and in
carri i gea, had gathered around tbe hollow
square of soldiery encompassing the platform
of tho garrote, which, as usual, was set up in
tho Punta adjoining the prison, and quite near
the sea. Leon and Madina, robed m white,
wore conducted toward tho garrote. A Spanish
paper says that a prisoner charged with treason
in tho Villanueva affair, called out to one of
thc condemned, as they were leaving the
prison, "Remember, Leon,your promise!" Ar?
rived on tho platform, Leon begged to say a few
words, and leave was graotod to him, accord?
ing to tho Spanish press, under plea that they
were to be words of contrition and farewell;
bul t|ns story is not yet verified. Leon began
a speech that soon grew bold and defiant in
the extreme. He said that though he stood
there, doomed as a criminal, he died for his
country, and was going to glory. Ho might
perish, but tho insurrection would not die with
him, and now he folt sure of the triumph of
brave man uttered. Nothing could exceed tbe
scornful and defiant abandon of some portions
of his speech. He held his head up proudly
and smiled, and almost, laugdod ont m tbe rac
ofthc death for which he wished tu show a
contempt as unmistakable as that which he
felt for his armed executioners. Tho volun?
teers guarding the platform tried to drowu his
voice witb cheers for Spain and crieB of death
to traitors, but, maintaining his bravado to the
last, Leon shouted his grUo over their heads
to the crowd beyond. It was heard and caught
up while the executioners wore carrying him
to the chair of thc garrote, and placing the
iron collar around his nock preparatory to
working the horrible set ow at the back of it
which was to give bim sudden death. A shot was
fired, and a Cuban fell dead near a volunteer.
Loud and frenzied cheering went up from a
multitude of tho common class of spectators,
wbite Cubans, mulattoes and negroes, while
this was taking place. Some cried, ' Viva Cu?
ba libre I" and others, "Viva C?spedes 1" and
"Muera Espanal" and tba volunteers replied
by snouts and shots. Cubans in the crowd who
had arms are said to have discharged them,
and one volunteer fell. The volunteers say, more?
over, that shots were fired from o ne of the neigh?
boring houses which they visited, bayoneting
several of the inmates, and, as is also reported, a
woman. All the soldiers, excepitiog the square
of volunteers Dear tho garrote, who maintain?
ed their position with an unusual and sinister
forbearance, broke ranks and charged upon
the crowd with sabres and bayonet?. Three
or four black mea and mulattoes were dread?
fully mangled in the fury with which they re?
venged themselves upon the respected portion
of the defenceless multitude. Tho most omi?
nous stgn of tho affray was that tho artillery?
men belonging tu tbe regular army, and be?
lieved to be too well disciplined to butcbei
without orders, drew their swords and ca : up
those within reach. No ono is at present sure
that more that seven persons were killed by
tbe troops. A great many must have been
hurt by being bayoneted, or shot or run
over. The flight of people and carriages
from tbe scene was as fearful as the scene
itself. For a milo np to tho Theatre Tacan the
great Prado of Isabel, ono of tho finest drive's
tu the world, was crowded with fugitive drivors.
A few wounded woro borne by in carriages, and
amoDg those on foot wt>ro excited men with
pistols in their hands, whom no volunteer took
the tronblo of arresting. While thc turmoil
was going on, the two men at tho garrote had
been bound to their scats and put to death by
tho turning of'ho iron screw. From noon to
sandown the dead men, white-shrjuded and
white-capped, sat rigidly in their seats, a
ghastly spectacle for tue entire city. But
more Cubans wore executed tban tho daring
Leon and his equally tearless companion Ma?
dina, and BO ibo whole of Havana feels to-day.
THE WARDLE CASE.
Decision of the L'nited States Supreme
On Monday last Chief Justice Chase deliver?
ed tho opinion of tho Supreme Court in the
case of ex parte Wm. H. McArdle, as follows :
This case came here by appeal from tho Cir?
cuit Court of the Southern District of Missis?
sippi. A petition for thc writ ol habeas corpus
waa preferred in that court by the appellant,
alleging unlawful restraint by military force.
The writ was issued, and a return m ado. by tho
military commander, admitting thc restraint,
but donying that it was unlawful. It appeared
that the petitioner was not in the military ser?
vice ot the United States, but was hold in" cus?
tody by military authority for tr al befure a
military commission ou a chnrgo founded on
tho publication of ortioltts alloged to be libel?
lous, in a newspaper of which he was the edi?
tor. Upon thc bearing, tho petitioner was re?
manded to thc military custody; but upon his
prayer an appeal was allowed him to this court,
and upon his fi'iug tho usual appeal bond for
costs he was admitted to bail upon recogni
ztnee, with sureiica conditioned for his future
appearance in tho Circuit Court to abide and
perform the final judgment of this court. A
motion to dismiss this appeal was made here
a' the Inst term, and, after argument, wns de?
nied. A full atatoment of tho case made will
bc found m tho report ot the decision, and it
is therefore unnecessary to repeat it here.
Subsequently the case was argued with great
ability and thoroughness upon tho merits, and
WAS taken under advisement by the court.
Wlnlo it was thus held, and before conference
as to tho dociaion proper to bc made, an act
was passed bv Congress, returned with objec?
tions by ihe President, ?ind rc passed by tho
constitu? ional majority, which, it is .insisted,
takea fro :i this court jnri.-diction of tho appeal.
The second section of this act is as follows :
And be it farther enacted, That much of tbe aot
approved February 5,18C7, entitled "An act to amend
an act to establish thc judicial courts of the United
States, approved September 24,1789," aa authorizes
an appeal from tbe judgment of the Circuit Court to
tbe Supreme Court of tbo United ti tates, cr the exer?
cise ot any such jurisdiction by said Supreme Court
on appeals which havo been or may hereafter be
talion, be, and tho 6amc is hereby, repealed.
The attention of the court was directed to
this statute at the last term; but counsel hav?
ing expressed a desire to he heard in argument
upon its effect, and tho Chief Justice being de?
tained from his place here hy his duties in tbe
Court of Impeachment, tho case was continued
under advisement. At this term wo have
heard argument upon the effect of the repeal?
ing act, and will now dispose of the case.
Tho first question is necessarily that of ju?
risdiction; for if the act of March", 1868, takes
away the jurisdiction defined by the act of
February, 1867, it is useless, if not improper,
to enter into any discussion of other questions.
It is qnite true, as was argued by the counsel
for the petitioner, that the appellate jurisdic?
tion of this court is riot derived from acts of
Congress. It is, strictly speaking, conferred
by tho constitution. Bat it is conferred "with
such exceptions and under such regulations as
Congress shall make." It is unnecessary to
consider whether, if Congress had made no
exceptions and no regulations, this court might
not have exercised general appellate jurisdic?
tion under rules presented by itself; for among
the earliest acts of Congress, at its first ses?
sion, was the act of September 24, 1789. to es?
tablish the judicial courts of the United States.
That act provided for the organization of this
court, and presonted regulations for the exer?
cise of its jurisdiction. The source of that
jurisdiction, and the limitations of it by the
constitution and by the statute, have been on
several occasions subjects of consideration
hero. In the CSBC of Durousaean vs. The Uni?
ted States, particularly, tho whole matter was
carefully considered, and tbo court held that
whde "the appellate powers of this coart are
not given by the judicial oct, but aro given by
the constitution," they are nevertheless "lim?
ited and regulated by that act, and by such
other acts as have been passed on the subject."
The court held, further, that the judicial act
waa an exercise of the power given by tho con?
stitution to Congress "of making exceptions to
the appellate jurisdiction to the Supremo
Court." "They have described affirmatively,"
said the court, "its jurisdiction, and this
affirmative description has been understood to
imply a negative on the exercise of such appel?
late power as it is not comprehended within it."
The principle that the affirmation of jurisdic?
tion implies the negation ot all such jurisdic?
tion not affirmed having been thus established,
it waa an almost necessary consequence that
acts of Congress providing for tho exercise of
jurisdiction should come to be spoken of as
acts granting jurisdiction, and not as acts
making exceptions to the constitutional grant
of it. The exception to the appellate juris?
diction in the case beforens, however, is
not an inference from tho affirmation ot other
appellate jurisdictions. It is made in terms.
A provision of law affirming tho appellate ju?
risdiction of this court in cases of habeas cor?
pus ia expressly repealed. It is hardly possi?
ble to imagine a plainer instanco of positive
exception. Wo aro not at liberty to enquire
into the motives of the legislature. We can
onlv examine its power under the constitution,
and the power to make exceptions to the ap?
pellate jurisdiction of this court is given by
express words. What, then, is the effect of
tho repealing act upon tbe case before ns ?
We cannot doubt as to this. Without jurisdic?
tion the court cannot proceed at all in any
cause. Jurisdiction is powor to declare the
law, and when it ceases to exist the only func?
tion remaining to the court is that of announc?
ing tho fact and dismissing tho cause. And
this ?B not lese olear upon authority than upon
principle. Several cases wore cited by the
counsel for tbe petitioner in support of the po?
sition that jurisdiction of this case is not affec?
ted by tho repealing act, but none of them, in
our judgment, afford any support to it. They
arc all cases of exercise of judicial power by
tho logislaturo, or of legislative interference
1 with the courts in the exercise of continuing
jurisdiction. On the othor hand, the gouei?l
rule supported by thc best elementary writers
?&M ?tim ? JuMufc?., '??M&Uire ?j?,
transactions passed and closed, as if it nover
existed," and the effect of repealing acts upon
suits under acts repealed has been determined
by the adjudication of this court. The sub?
ject was fully considered in Morris vs. Crocker,
and moro recently in Insurance Company vs.
Ritchie, in both of which cases it was held that
no judgment could be rendered in a suit after
the repeal of thc act under which it was
brought and presented. It ?B quite clear,
therefore, that this court cannot proceed to
pronounce judgment in this case, for it has no
longer jurisdiction of the appeal; and judicial
duty is no less fitly performed by declining un?
authorized jurisdiction than in exercising
firmly that which the constitution and th?
laws confer. Counsel seems to hare supposed,
if effect be given to the repealing act iu ques?
tion, that tho whole appellate power or the
court in cases of habeas corpus is denied. But
this is au error. The act of 1868 does npt ex?
cept from that jurisdiction any other cases
and appeals from circuit courts under the act
of 1867. It does not affect that jurisdiction
which waa previously exorcised. The appeal
of the petitioner in this caso must be dismissed
for want of jurisdiction.
THE GU FEIN.
[From the Chesterfield Democrat. |
Some of our readers may not know that hie
insulted Excellency replied to the article of THE
CHARLESTON NEWS, in regard to the organiza?
tion of negro militia, flatly denying that any
order was issued for tho enrollment. Unfor?
tunately for tbe Governor, the enrolling officer
at Abbevil c, one Guinn by name, comes to the
rcscuo of his chief and says just enough to
prove tbac either the Adjutant-General's De?
partment was in operation before it was open?
ed, or his offended majesty suspended an order
emanating from himself which he now claims
had never been issued. Tbe fact is, in our
humblo judgment, THE CHARLESTON NEWS is
entitled to tho wholo credit of inducing an
abandonment of the mischievous design by
its timely and manly protest. No ono can read
the wholo correspondence which has been call?
ed ont on this subject without coming to the
[From the AbbeviUe Press.]
In another column we publish the comments
of tho CHARLESTON NEWS upon Guffin's letter,
showing how entirely irreconcilable are ita
statements with the positions assumed by Gov?
ernor Stott. The points made by the editor
are well taken; the issues clearly presented;
and the conclusions seem to be irresistible. As
THE NEWS expresses it. "if Gunin be right,
Scott is wrong; and if Scott bo right, Curtin is
wrong.' But whatever be doubtful, this much
is certain-admitted m Guffin's letter and pay?
out in every act-that he exercised the author?
ity, whether lawfully or not, to raise a com?
pany. Agencies thc most effectual'; appeals tho
most irresistible were employed; a company
of sixty-five mon was raised; and but for
tho timely interposition of others to arrest
the work, labor would have been disorganized,
anda bloody conflict inaugurated. Guffin's
act contemplated no mero enrollment. He
wanted a company for actual work-'short,
sharp and decisive"-he employed the most
speedy means to raiso it, and did raise it. His
statements aro consistent with his actB; but
both word and deed are irreconcilable with tho
positions of Governor Scott. It is a matter of
no concern to us who is right and who is
wrong. We are willing to let tho matter rest,
and trust that wo may never again nave tho
disagreeable provocation and the unpleasant
task of reviving it.

The Cheraw Democrat notices an ingenious
attempt to swindle the liquors dealers of that
place. Some sharper offered a barrel for sale
from the bung of which brandy of good quality
was drawn, while from the gimlet hole at
either end the clearest and most i nm cent
well water was obtained. On offering his
liquor for sale, he drew from the bung a small
sample, which pleased the purchaser at $3,25
pe gallon; but when he attempted to gauge* it
to ascertain the outage, tho rod would only go
straight down, and not entirely down at that.
This was strange, and excited suspicion, and
upon examination it was discovered that a tube
was fixed in the barrel just under the bung
which would not hold a quart. This was filled
with the real simon pnre article, while the bar?
rel itself contained tho very common and un?
popular beverage which may be had for noth?
ing at any branch. The fellow decamped be?
fore his frick was fully exposed. He had pur?
chased s bottle of good brandy and poured a
part of it in at the bu ig on the pretence of
giving his newly distilled article a better flavor.
When suspicion was somewhat aroused, he
put on a bold face and offered to sell at $2 and
draw it off by the gallon, but took care not to
be present at tho drawing.
