-A Washington telegram to thc Rici mond
Dispatch gives the following S3 thc origin <H the
recent amnesty rumors: "The President in.
formed Senators Johnston, of Virginia, and Bore
man, of West Virginia, that he had pre; .ired a
message to Congress recommending un versal
amnesty, and that he would transmit it to that
b-Mly after the admission of Tcxa* and Geo gia;
t iat, in his opinion, the time for general amnesty
had arrived, ?nd he thought Congress should
pass a bill onablii.g all political offenders to be?
come enfranchised by going to the nearest court,
registering, and taking a proper oath. The pnbli
cation of these facts aroused thc opponents to
general amnesty, among them a few senators and
representatives , who have been since that
time exerting their influences with thc President
to have the message delayed or set aside alto?
gether. The subject or amnesty lias been several
times talked over by th?? President aud his Cabi?
net, and General Grant adheres to his original
purpose; and the draft of a message to Congress
on the subject is now lying upon his table.
Meantime, accounts of outrages, alleged to
have been committed rcceutly lu North and
South Carolina and Alabama, upon colored per?
son?, have been brought to thc notice or
thc President by Senator Warner and others,
as a reason why thc amnesty proclamation should
not now be issued. Secretary Fish had an inter?
view with thc President on the subject to-dny,
and approves tho course proposed by thc Presi?
dent. General Sherman also approves the am?
nesty message, and to-day remarked that amncs^
ty would tend to soothe the two or three hundred
thousand persons disfranchised in the South, and
cause them to assist in put ting down lawlessness;
and this class or people would no longer be found
saying wc are not citizens, and don't care if thc
laws "are violated. Admiral Porter also re?
marked that general amnesty ought to be grant?
ed at once."
Oar Political War-Horse.
Thc martial speech of Governor Scott,
during his recent trip to Washington, is be?
ing handled ia a most disloyal and irreve?
rent temper by the New York pres3. Any?
body can see, either that the Governor was
in fun. or that the speech was made after
dinner. Besides, he is a man in office, and,
now-a-days, office, like charity, covers a mul?
titude of sins.
What does that scurrilous, journal, The
World, mean by describing In spirited re?
marks as the atrocious utterances attribu?
ted to and not denied by the fellow who
"styles himself the Governor of South Caroli
"na." If thc Governor did say "that said
"State was one nest of assassination, that
"there was no protection for loil men, and that
"he only wanted the General Government to
"give him Wiuchester rilles, with a hundred
"rounds of ammunition for each, 'as tho best
" 'law that you can have there,' " is he the iirst
man who has used the bottom of a tumbler
for a field-glass, and who, as he gazed, has
seen visions and dreamed dreams?
We grieve to say that The World extends
no consideration whatever to the hallucinated
Governor, but seriously, nay, fiercely, puts
him down by the counter testimony of "an
"aged and eminent citizen of South Carolina,
".who,'' as we are told, " was prominent in
"thc councils of the republic long before this
"so called Governor started in life as a quack."
The venerable statesman has no mercy upon
the maudlin, yet bellicose doctor, but writes,
as The World pitilessly informs us, "todc
"nounce the Governor's charges as the most
"gross and absolute falsities, and to declare
"that such fostering of or incitemcn t to crime,
"as there has been in the State, is due solely
"to this very man, who has notoriously par?
doned the greatest villains almost as fastas
"the courts convicted, and now seek.?, by the
"creation of au armed negro force, to carry
"the next Congressional elections." We blush
to think that our family afl'airs are so well
known. Let us have peace. Let our vener?
able statesman reflect that there is no clan?
ger in those rifles which the Governor is
seeking to gain. They can be sold, a3 well
.as the State. And let the pnnic stricken
Governor reflect that the suffrages. he needs
can be secured without any help from Wash?
ington ; they can be manufactured as easily
as the Southern outrages.
We add with a trembling hand the conclu?
sion to which The World arrives, in regard
to the heart and head of our beloved Chief
Magistrate. It speaks of his " low and base
"calibre;" it argues that thc instincts of such
a nature must "normally develop them?
selves in thc late slanders retailed in Wash?
ington;" and adding insult to injury, it de?
scribes him as "this particular specimen,"
as if lie were a stuffed polecat. Perpetrat?
ing a horrible climax, The World exclaims:
"Equally natural is it that his stupidity
"should be as gross as his malevolence; for
"otherwise how would he assert a state of
"affairs in South Carolina which proves noth?
ing so much as his own worthlessness ? Tho
"hog, it is said, in swimming frequently cuts
"its own throat; and so this Governor., in
"seeking to procure thc extension of Iiis
"term by thc rattling of bloody bones, but
"proves that he is not fit to be a Governor
We take issue willi The World. If thc
facts are so, Governor Scott is a man of the
greatest prudence and shrewdness. If Iiis
own people think so contemptuously of him,
happy for him was the day when he emigrat?
ed. In certain disturbed states of society a
penniless adventurer may become a million?
aire and a Governor in Suuth Carolina. He
is "all right" beyond any question. But
as for us, we fear that we shall lose this ex?
cellent officer. His leading supporter in
Charleston was overthrown as soon as he re?
sorted to pistols. He himself incurs the same
danger from popular ingratitude when he
resorts to Winchester rifles. Indeed, we
greatly fear that he could not save himself
from defeat, through ho should summon to
his aid torpedoes, and columbiads, and ele?
A Good Word for Alaska.
At last some one is found to say a good
WOAI for Alaska, the land of frost, fog and
snow, for which the Czar of All the Rnssias
consented to accept the snug snm of seven
million dollars. Au article in the London
Observer states that the fur trade lias be?
come very active under the auspices of the
go-ahead Americans, and the catch of sea
otter skins, which is, almost confined to
Alaska, has largely increased. When that
territory belonged to Russia, the number
never exceeded 3000 ncr annum. Most of
thc skins went into ?aissia direct, and the
trade was protected by a monopoly vested
in the Russian-American Company. With
the transfer of the territory, the company
and tho monopoly have ceased to exist, and
the catch during the past year was double
that under the old r?gime. In the article of
fur seal skins from the Aleutian Islands, also
part of tlie transferred territory, there is lo
be found another example of the anxiety of
its new masters, the Americans, to ?inprove
the shining hour. The old Russian com?
pany used to jog along contentedly, pro?
ducing and sending t) Europe some 4000
seal skins per annum. Du -ing tho eighteen
months that have elapsed since the transfer,
the American successors of the Russiuu com?
pany have consigned lo Sir Curtis Lamp3on
about 300,000 fur seal skins, representing a
money value of about $2,000,000 ingold.
A few yeaig of thiB would go far to pay the
purchase money which our folk3 paid Rus?
sia for the sterile tract; but the best judgea
are inclined to fear that a slaughter so vast
is injudicious, and that iu their basic to "re?
alize" our speculative friends are imitating
tho impulsive individual who killed the goose
for the sake of thc egg-}.
Thc Fire Parade.
A correspondent asks us to have thc kind?
ness to agitate thc question of "a general
'.closing up of all places of business on the
"27th of April," when tba annual parade of
the Fire Department will take place.
Every man is the best judge of his own
affairs, and it would be an improper interfer?
ence with the rights of private citizous to
uso any public pressure to cause them to
close their places of business on any partic?
ular day, perhaps at great loss and inconve?
nience to themselves. At the same time, we
take it for granted that every employer will
do what he can to give all ?1030 who desire
to take part in tho parade a proper opportu?
nity of doing so. Thia is the least that em?
ployers can do for the city and tho Fire De?

Tiic Camden Election.
The CITIZENS' PARTV Ticket was elected on
Monday, by a majority of fourteen. The
Journal says that there was considerable
interest taken in the election, and much
activity prevailed among the friends of the
two tickets, but the day passed oft" quietly.
At night the Republicans held a meeting, at
which they resolved to contest the election,
and accordingly on Tuesday handed in a
protest, which waa considered by the Town
Council, who declared that the election was
legal and valid. The Council elect will be
installed on Monday next.

JQAVIS & MILLER'S
GREAT REDUCTION IN PRICES.
QUALITY STILL FURTHER IMPROVED.
We beg leave respectfully to call the attention
or the public to our Superior Flavoring Extracts.
As ten years have now elapsed since we .first in?
troduced them to the notice or the American pub?
lic, we deem It unnecessary at present to enter
into a lengthy description or meir merits, Ac.
There ls hardly a city or town or any note In the
country Into which they have not round their
way. The reason or this widespread popularity
and dally increasing demand ls owing entirely to
their peculiar excellence and intrinsic worth.
Being determined to make them the Standard Ex?
tracts of the day, we have still further improved
their qualltv, aud now we firmly and honestly be?
lieve that they stand without a rival. Our Vanilla
Extract cannot be surpassed for richness and
delicacy or flavor. It is a strictly pure andJilgh
ly concentrated Extract or Vanilla Bean!. In
short, we think it the best that ls made, at least,
this ls the decision or the best Judges in the coun?
try. We doii't pretend to compete la price with
many or Hie so-called Flavoring Extracts or the
day, which are really but worthless compounds,
undeserving or thc name.
For quality and style, we defy competition.

PURE YEAST POWDER,
A substitute for Yeast In making Hot Bread,
Rolls and Batter Cakes of every description, hav?
ing the advantage of making tue dough or batter
perfectly lieht, and ready for baking without
delay, and greatly diminishing the liability to
become sour. . .? ' _
Many dyspeptics, who cannot tolerate fresh,
light cakes when made with yeast, can eat them
with impunity when raised in this way.
When used according to directions, it is war?
