LATER.-The Conservative candidates held a meeting and declined to accept the offices for which they received certificates, ll it shall ap? pear, orUegal investigation, that their election depends-ti pon the throwing out of the vote of the precinct from which the ballot-box was stolen. They invite their opponents to con? test the efection before the courts, and declare the belief that such evidence of fraud and ir? regularity exists as will give the Conservative ticket the legal return. SELDOM do we meet with a truth more beau tlfuRy expressed than this from the New York Nation: "Refined homes are the end of civili? zation. All the work of the world-the rail? roading, navigating, digging, delving, manu? facturing, inventing, teaching, writing, fight ling, are done, first of all, to secure each faml Uy in the quiet possession of its own hearth; land secondly, to surround as many hearths as possible with grace and culture and beauty, frhe work of all races for five thousand years Hs represented in the difference between a wig? wam and a lady's parlor. It has no better te Irait to show." -King George, of Greece, is probably the Shabbiest specimen of a monarch on the face " the earth. Not only has his whole power feen set at defiance by a couple of dozen of rigands, but he has also been forced to so r abuse his kingly dignity es to walk bare eaded with his queen in the funeral of the two inglis h commoners who tell victims to h is eakness.

Kiat ls the use of being a king when force'd come down to this sort of thing with ple lans. #?he Greeks ought to take good care George, as there will evidently be" far more buble In passing his crown than there is with pt of Castile.

The overwhelming sue cess o? the appeal to the people lias justified the previsions of the Emperor. After a t wt-Ive month of invectives, the various shades of his Majesty's opposition have only been able to muster one and a hali millions of votes-the supporters oflibt'ty without revolution, seven and a quarter. This vote is the real expres? sion of the national will; and if the conquered party will but consider their ways and bc wise, relinquish the violent hate of personal politics, give a long pull, a strong pull, and a pull altogether, Fiance lias before- liera futuro of glory that will put into the shade thc bril? liant reign of Louis XIV and Napoleon I Tlie French have ii proverb that when one has not what they love, it is necessary to love what ose lias"; if it were acted on, the nation r.-ouid be indeed happy. The large class of voters who went to the poll, showed a revi? val of political life very commendable, and how little influence had that fraction of the press which preached up abstention. The sensible portion of the Democratic*presa wipe their swords and honorably admit a lost battle. But the Incendiary papers congratulate them? selves on a triumph ! " Asinus asinum fricaL The majority consist in their opinion only ol Bcetians. But this Mephistophelic humor may be pardoned. Every condemned has twenty four hours to curse his judges. The Emperor and his ministers will not relax in their eilorts to make France governable-to habitu?t- thc people lo the use of liberty. The country lias unmistakably pronounced against barricades, and the "immortal principles, of 1789'' ure now discussed ouly over truffled tur? keys and Madame Clicquot's-and may the lit? tle widow's shadow never be less-champagne.. A great number of the civil servants of the crown voted "No," but this is a chronic fashion against every government that declines to in? crease their salaries. The "Noes" irom the army amounted to 4G,000; the navy nearly six thousands lt would be strange if the incendi? ary writings of the Opposition journals did not find some echo in the canteens. But it must not be concluded that the soldiers, in voting "Nb," are partisans of the revolutionists. On the contrary, Hie hostility expressed ls a de? monstration against some ol' the unpopular acts of the late .Minister of War, Marshal Niel, whose motto was, "The army is myself." The Emperor, on visiting the barrack, along with the Empress, where one half of the soldiers voted "No," was enthusiastically received; the Imperial visitors inspected the hospital wards, anil left 2000 francs for the braves lo drink the Emperor's health. His Majesty's letter to the army of Paris shows his confidence in it is un? shaken. The large towns os usual polled dead against the Empire, but the number ol' discontented is less than during the general elections of 18C9. Those towns which are the centres of special industries, however, voted tor the government by strongly marked majorities. Paris, too, gave gratifying proof of a re? turn N to better counsels. Everywhere the polling was fair and free. There were no urns with false, bottoms, or substitutes for ballot boxes, in the shape or a soup tureen, or n gendarmes boot. It would be marvellous if thc election passed off without a demonstration. On Wednesday evening, after the third day of agony, revolu? tion breathed Its last sigh. But during this time, some bayonet-wounds were inflicted, and heads laid open with paving stoties and bottles. The ghost of a barricade made its appearance, amidst the jeers of the lookers-on. and as usual the patriotic defenders bolted on the ap? pearance of the troops, who conlliiued to sweep the boulevards, where a crowd formed. About four hundred arrests have been made, but out of this number only fifty will be ar? raigned. Doggers and knives were the princi? pal arms found on the insurgents, who count two deaths-and the burial ol' these saviours of their country attracted some 1200 mourn? ers, who made very violent speeches over the graves. Two policemen are reported to have died from their wounds. The Min? ister ' of Police made an appeal to the good* sense of the Parisians-a very un? known element la their character-to keep within doors. It was just the thing wanted to retain them in the streets. To see a revolution is such tv curious spectacle, that the rheumatic and paralytic of several months lying did take up their beds and walk to view the fun. Did Hot a gentleman lately write to the Times that, thanks to a railway collision, he became a "perfect cure," from rheumatism ? A great many citizens fled to the mountains, during the ex? citement, and those who were compelled to remain near the housetops, provisioned their abodes with bread and hams for three days. It is said the chiefs ot the Left will be called upon to resign, it is singular that the leaders of this party, which sends them to Parliament, are never found in the bottle's van-nor. in? deed, do they ever call upon their constituents to abandon street-rioting. There were several cases of individual outrages cornmltttcd by the disciples of liberty, equality and fraternity. Those who were not for them were against them. Several (ramie attempts ore made lo seduce the soldiers to ..fi atei irize," especially those quartered in the barracks ol Prince Bn geue. But without success. One lieutenant, who replied lo one of the mob thal he would do his duty, was nearly shot dead by his ques? tioner, and several sentries became-Hie victims of revolutionary abduction. However, the little game is atlast finished-the majority in? sist on the government paying attention to them, not to the rioters. The Legislative As? sembly has resumed duty, and wlien the cabi? net shall have been reconstituted, (he march of constitutional liberty will be rapid aud un? impeded. The fight for thc kingship of Spain is down to come off within thc next two months. Prim has at last found thc philosopher's stone to solve all difficulties. The champions are ' the young Montpelier and the old Espartero. Priui himself will be "the dark horse" in the race. Much gossip is here going on relative to the great dinner given by the Spanish au? thorities here, to celebrate the triumph of the Plebiscite; and which he came hot-haste from Madrid to preside over. The other embassa dors contented themselves by presenting the congratulations of their sovereign of the Tuile? ries. The attempt to get upa sympathetic meeking among the Greeks in Parin to oppo.'e the natural wrath ot John Bull for the Mara? thon massacre, has failed-chiefly through tho instigation ol' Russia. The latest news we have from Athens and by telegraph express is, that his Majesty was "out scooting yester? day and killed two rabbiLs."' A leading deputy, belonging lo the Irrecon? cilables, has furnished "al! Paris" with ft good laugh at his his odyssey daring the last few days. He made the acquaintance of a German .'laily,'" lively as Hebe, and who had thc blood of the Brandenburgs in her vein--, and could boast bv her mother's side of that of the Haps? burg* also. For the first day's proceedings the deputy put one hundred and fifty Napo? leons in his pocket, for these kind of voyages round Parn arc often more expensive than a tour round the world. Mlle, was very weil "?ot up," and could boast ti little of literature. ' Uer i'ounces fresh from Victorine. From Hippolyte lier rouge aud hair: Her poetry norn Lamartine. Her morals from-the Lord knows where.'' She accepted, with a protest, jewelry and dia? monds; dined at a lamons restaurant, where truant kings and princes generally sup-for dessert, grapes on their branches, iii 20 francs each, and a box at thc opera at a fancy price. One hight her cavalier desired to see her home. She shat the door in his face, aud called him an imbecile. A few days subsequently he was talking with the wife of a German.ambassitdor, when a "lady" passed by In au elegant phti ton, and bowed to the ambassadrice, who looked daggers "Who is that person ?" demanded the deputy. "My waiting maid," replied the lady,"whom I lately dismissed." Possibly Paris may attribute its recent adhe? sion to the cause ol order to asparagus. There is no vegetable so highly prized, by high and low, as this succulent esculent. It is now pur? chasable by the most moderate purse, and it is held to be very efficacious as a purifier of the blood. A good dish of it can be had for two francs, and tor six sous ererv prol?taire can taste it. The "lower orders" eat it in a mix? ture ol oil and vinegar-thc "upper" with a white sauce. Fontenelleorice Invited Laharpc to dine with him, and announced asparagus as one of tlie good things. Laharpe inquired I with what sauce, "White," replied FonU'ttcUe, Lahor pe preferred oil arni vinegar, and it was arranged, halt the bundle was to be served to suit each. Before dinner hour, the news ar? rived that Laharpe was dead, and Fontenelle Immediately ran lo the cook and told thc cook io serve ali foe asparagus with while sane?;. For the Paris market, the asparagus is raised in the district of Aigentenil-outside the city a million bundles, containing twenty branches each, being sold during the season." The first bolte is presented to the Emperor. Although this plant was known to the (?auls, who moist? ened their parched throats with it, it was only in 1800 that its cultivation became a science. L'herault affectionately alindes to Itv as Isaac Wallon did to his bait-it is requisite to love the plant as a father his children-ns a doctor cares for his patient. It can be purchased ready cooked, or in the natural state, from the costermongcr. who trundles his hand-cart, up to noonday, through Hie streets, with Hie pre? cious frannie-mackerel, flounders, young car? rols anil Spanish onions, with sorrel lor aperi? ent soups, and doudel'on for diuretic salmis. An. "artful dodger? has at last come to grief, Be it known, that the pork-butchers who sell everything porcine, from the tail to the snout, deal also in crabs, crayfish and lobsters. \Jt is common In the mornings lo see these crust m:ed. "all alive, all alive," on I he flag way un? der the shop window. From the frequency of these exhibitions, yon mitrht imagine Paris had a more than Gargantuan stomach for shell-nab. but the secret" is. the collection ls hired out al so niticli an hour. It is a sort of harmless fraud-a- ihe wine shop cn Hie verge of bank? ruptcy negotiates for a dozen barrels of Bor? deaux, to be displayed before his door for a day; or the dry goods man, drivinga roaming trade, is always unpacking bales in front of the shop, blocking up the pathway, to repack at night in the back premises. Weil, a man had trained his dog to consent, without a prolest, to the lobster seizing a very bushy tail between its claws, much to the amusement of the shop? keeper and crowd. But the dog had also the habit of boUjpg when all was fast aud sure, and his msPfer also to call liini back. But both never were known to return, lill a detect Ive discovered the master reselling tho ho? mard. ll is said that the best moral books are like mirrors-they reflect, but do not correct, and Montalembert, a sentimentalist in his way, has inlormed us that he knows of no more beauti? ful subject to write upon thau the history of prayer-of the creature's confession To God", of Iiis miseries and joys, his feajgi and his desires. A Frenchman has acted on ms idea, and has published the prayers and thoughts of French Kings and Princesses, beginning with the prayer ot Clovis, on the battle-Held orTalbiac. in 496, down to the last will and testament of the Duchess of Angotileme, in 1851. THE El EST NEURO CADET. His Arrival and Reception at West Point-Consternation Among tile Cau? casians- A Council of War-How the Officer* Hope to Get Kid of Catlee. A West Point correspondent ol' the Kew York Sun, writing on the 25th ultimo, says: West Point and the entire National Acade? my were almost breathless with excitement yesterday. The son of a colored American citizen arrived here in his new role ot military cadet. There had been rumors that negro boys had been appointed to llio National Acad? emy, but tile ubsoliite arrival of an African, commission in hand, is too much for West Point human nalino to endure. Aristocrate professors and jaunty cadets are speechless.' Cadet Masler Charles Howard (colored) comes from Hie Slate of Mississippi. Iiis ap? pointment is from tlie Secretary ol' War, anti was recommend-*'! by the lion. Legrand W. Perce, newly elected member from, thc lifth district. His pure African descent is unmis? takably manifested in his clear black com? plexion, largely white eyes and closely crimped hair. His personal appearance ls by no means unprepossessing. In height he is about live feet four inches; his figure is well rounded, and his carriage not at all ungraceful. His countenance has a pleasant, shrewd and reso? lute expression. His acceut smacks decidedly ot the plantation. ''What you g'win to do wid dat bag, sali ?" and "You dun let dat drap," was his exclamation to a hotel porter who ac cidentlytook up his carpet-bug. His nose is slightly retrouss? and his face is shiny willi healtb. It ls settled that he cannot be rejected physically by the medical board. It is quite evident, that he is aware of the peculiar position In which he ls placed, and that although sensitive, he is not embarrass? ed nor discouraged. His appearance as he wandered a'.-nit the Plains, carrying io his hand an immense carpet-bag, and iuqniring the direction to the commandant's ollice, was somewhat amusing. He was politely inlorm? ed that he was in advance ol'the appointed time, and that new cadets could not be exam? ined until alter the 25th. Ile then endeavored to procure board, but everywhere he applied was Informed that lhere were no accommoda? tions left, whereupon he proceeded lo the Vil? lage of Highland Fulls, two miles below, and applied at Cozzens" Hotel. Dinner and supper were furnished him there, but all the rooms were ''engaged;*' so he had recourse to a col? ored family who live near by, and who are now entertaining him. He appears very quiet, bul apparently determined to "push things" resolutely. His advent is the sensation of the season. The cadets, especially, are nota lillie exercised In mind over Hie mat? ter, and it ls a theme of not a lillie contentious argument. Even the oflicers, while discard? ing all political bias in thc limiter, and aller having lb;ight for thc colored race, bulli at Hie polls and oh the battle-field, while feeling kind? ly toward him, speak very donbllinly on thc expediency ol"this venture. They regard il as a more decided advance of the colored niau into social circles than even the ?l?vation of Senator Bevels io Congressional rank. The position of Ute new cadet, If accepted and re? tained, must grow more and more embarrass? ing from his isolation and the peculiar novelty of his social connections. No doubt but this recruit will have a thorough initiatory "devil? ment''from the cadels. lo sustain which will test his fortitude. Otherwise be will be treated, by both officers and cadets, with courtesy rod kindness, their sense of honor bel?g too high to permit any other course. One thing is certain, the black cadet Is here. Ile is undoubtedly physically qualified. He must now drill with the while cadets until the examination on the 24ih of .July. Then he will fail .In mental examination, and go back to Mississippi. This is the program me. for the examining officers have power to reject any applicant. General Schriver and Colonel Black are opposed to the African, and while they are at the head of Hie National Academy Hie black boy will remain on the plantation. Judge H?ge. M. C.. from Columbia, is to appoint a negro, and has already signed a paper of re? commendation. Genera! Butler's colored youth was too young, and the general knew it. He only appointed him for political purposes. But in the light of the Fifteenth amendment, what shail we do willi the African in our national and naval acad?mies hs a grave question for the imregenerated mind. TRIE TAX TITLES. Th? New Plan to Quid Them. We see thai Representative Bowen has in? troduced imo the House of Representatives "A bill for thc sale of certain lots ol the sea islands in Beaufort County, and for other purposes.*1 Th?' bill legalizes a!! -ales heretofore effected, makes thc tax certificates of sales valid lille ty the property, provides for the sale of all school lauds and all lois In Beaufort at public auction bet ween Hie firsl of December, 1870. and the thirtieth ol March. 1871, on three weeks' published notice: provides for the sale of lauds in St. Luke's Parish, :u lots ol twenty acres, atone dollar and fifty cents an acre, lo the freedmen, who are or were, previous to 1SG2. residents of Ute plantations to which those lands belonged; for the sale of the lands of Phillips, Capers. Fripp?, Hunting and Ar? bor Islands at public auction, and for the sale of all other lands in possession of the govern? ment at auction in lots of forty acres lo beads of families, at a price not less than one dol? lar an acre. The bill directs that all monies received shall be paid into the treasu? ry of the United States, to be invest? ed by '.lie secretary in bonds of Hie United States, 'he interest on which .--hall be expen? ded for schools by the commissioners of Beau? fort County under supervision of the State su? perintendent of schools, and directs that all school properly now controlled by thc bureau shall be turned over to the school authorities Of Beaufort County. The bill further provides Hint oil suits at law to eject any purchaser ol auy part of this property shall be brought, not against the purchaser, but against the United bibles as dele ada a I. TUE MEN IX G RE EX. Further Particular* of thc Fenian Movements on the Ii o rd cr. All is quiet on l!ie Canadian line. The excite? ment has ceased, but sufficient force has been distributed on both sides of the frontier by ilie Dominion and Unitgt} .'.tates authorities, re? spectively, lo prevent trouble from maraud? ing bands unable to return home. Tilt! LATEST. OuDENSBfnc. May 20. Generals Meade. McDowell and Van Vliet arrived here this afternoon. They regari I the Fenian movement as ended, and are confident there will be no more trouble. The leaders are in the hands of the civil authorities. Gen? eral Meade thinks the railroad companies should transport the 1000 or l?(?i Fenians at .Malone home, as they look full fare from them coming. The report that General Foster, at St. Albans, had demanded the return of pieces ol'artillery; token hythe Canadians from thc Amcricarisside. is untrue. A Canadian who was in Hie fight near St. Albans states that there were just thirty-six Canadians engaged. Seven carloads of Fenians left St. Albans for home Saturday night. Til? First Battle-A Canadian Account. A special dispatch from Frellghsburg, May 25. to the Toronto Leader, says: The volunteers have had their first skirmish willi the Fenians. The latter mustered belora noon about three hundred strong, just oppo? site the line, two miles lrom Cook's corner of the road leading from thc latter place to Franklin Centre, and at the old Fenian camp? ing ground.. The United States marshal crossed to the Canadian side and informed Colonel Smith that lie had no troops to prevent thc Fenians crossing. In halt an hour afterward the Fenians open? ed fire upon the Sixtieth Battalion of Volun? teers under Colonel Chamberlln. and the Inde? pendent Corps tinder Captain Westover. The volunteers returned the fire with spirit. The Fenians were sheltered by a, group of houses on the boundary line, but they left their cover and a company dashed across the line into Canada, and the next minute a volunteer bullet laid ii dead Fenian across the road thirtv yards lrom the line. The skirmishing and firing was continued at irregular intervals for hau an hour, when Captain Gascoigne, who had at the beginning of the firing been dispatched lo Stenbridge village for assistance, arrived with the Victorias in double team wagons, followed by Cuplain Muir's troop of cavalry. The caval? ry dismounted On a hill overlooking the Feni? ans, and the Victorias defiled and opened a skirmishing fire from among the rocks. The Fenians retired under cover at 2 P. M., but shortly alterward appeared again, and a hot fire was kent up for some time. Nothing could exceed the" admirable manner in which the troops behaved; they exhibited the utmost coolness and steadiness, facing the galling dre like veterans. " . ? THE CHARGE. Apparently ! ired of firing, and ?laving no ammunition, the Fenians advanced within one hundred yards of osr lines. They were heavi? ly-built, rough-looking fellows, badly uni? formed, and"without discipline. No sooner was it ascertained through the dense smoke thal (hey were bent on attacking us. than the word "charge was given, and our gallant force advanced with'the bayonet." The Fe? nians halted and waited for the onslaught. "Reserve your lire and give them the British bayonet,'1 was the command, and on dashed the volunteers In double quick time, cheering lustily, amid cries of "No quarter." In a few seconds they were almost breast to breast with the enemy, who began to waver, although their officers dill their utmost to keep them iii line. .Aller a few feeble shouts ol' "Flin go Bragh," and "Remember our martyred broth? ers.71 which appeared to be their chief battle cry, they slowly turned tall and finally took to their heels, and made for the American fron? tier willi all possible dispatch, leaving arms, ammunition, overcoats, ami a considerable number of whiskey flasks on the Held. Colonel Chainberlin dashed up to the head or Iiis column, and rising in his stirrups, yelled "Give the cowards a volley!" an order which was immediately complied with, seven or eight Fenians falling, among them a youth, of seventeen, gracefully attired in greeu. and holding a lieutenant's commission". Captain Muir with TUE CAVALRY came whirling past at a terrible speed, willi loud cheering, which was taken up by the whole force and echoed by the spectators on the hill. Sweeping onward. Captain Muir and his noble fellows overtook a lew Fenian strag? glers, who bitterly implored mercy. One trooper, a big, burly fellow, seized a wretch by the collar, lilted him clean off the ground, anil dashed him senseless to the earth, to the great amusement of his comrades and to the infinite disgust o? the viciiin. who was pounced upon by an infantry man and conducted to the ivar. When the main body of the Fenians crossed Hu* line. Captain Muir ai once called oil' his men, and took up a position to Hie ri^ht of the Sixtieth. The Victorias were rushing up, but the enemy was out ol' sight and safely es conced on lite Yankee side before they had the chance of firing a shot. The whole force then paraded, when ii was found that not a man was hurt, although several had most extraordinary escapes. Tue greatest exultation prevailed, and everybody was disgusted ut the cowardly conduct of '.h'.* foe. The Fenians, about live P. M.. reappeared near the huge rock on the American glue, or?-. p?sito the hill, bu! were in no great humor for lighting, and a few well-directed shots sent them to their cover. The dead and wounded Fenians. Io the number ol twelve, were then cared for by Colonel (?minberiin. The boy officer who was wounded in the second attack stated thal Hie Fenian force amounted io three hundred and seventy-live, commanded by ten officers; that O'Neil was afraid lo head the at? tack himself, giving as an excuse thal !.<. was engaged ia * arranging "strategic move? ments." Colonel Chamberlin's force consisted of fifty men of his own battalion, and forty-six civ? ilians. Too much praise cannot be awarded them. ^_ A ROM USU ELI, IX TUE CAMP. How the Radical* in Washington Re? ceived the It< suit of tile Kew York Election. I). P. writes from Washington to *.he Cin? cinnati Commercial : There is no denial of the fact that the late election in >cw York has hail a somewhat du pressing effect u|?on the government people here, who, up io that ?.vent, counted their two-tbirds majority i:i Congress, and swung on as ii lhere were- no constituencies taking nole of their shortcoming*. Th u tho City of New York, tinder Hie corrupt control of the mos', infamous organization known to political humanity, should'exhibit a huge ninjoritvin favor of the Democracy, was expected. But Hie result In Hie rural districts ?ills our friends willi dismay, li is the handwriting on Hie iva!!, and means deal h. Aiiti yet, judging from tho talk ol Republi? can officials heretofore, one would mutier Hint the defeat of the Republicans iii a triumph of Hie De in av racy, was nu even! tn be expected, and. Whether pleasant or ?io:, one to ye re? garded with pliilosopl ical indifference. Bu* death, however lotiir nnlicipnied. cannot be made familiar. We look the inevitable calm? ly in the face until Hie face assumes thal form, and then ive shrink in dismay. I take my meals at Wcicker's, where quite a number of Congressmen feed, and Hie morning Hie news reached us, and each mun opened his morn ingjonrnal lo read the news, a dead silence, a deep gloom fell upon tho room, so marked thal a Stranger would ??ave taken us for a col? lection of u nilen akers, refreshing ourselves upon the cold baked meats ol a funeral. The mass of (ht (nieces and swindlers that have crowded upon the Republican craft, until ii is fairly swamped, for '.he first time'bettin to realize that their days are numbered-their doom seato/. What with this iniquitous pro? tective tariff thal grinds down the multitude that a few may prosper; what with the hard times and the thousand and one gigantic legis- '? lative swindles fer a few monopolists, tho peo? ple sicken and cry out for a change. Old Pig-iron says, in the deepest touo of a voice that sounds like echoes from a rotten collin : "The Demo-cratic partee will never consent, sir, lo a re-duc-tion of the tariff. The leaders may advocate such a ru-io-oiis po!-i-c.v when out o':' pow-er, but when in powi-r. s-'.-r, they dare uot.v Poor devil. I think I PCP him begging ft pro? tective tarin' from the Democracy. The in? stincts ol'that celebrated Organization are not so keenAnd perfect; as they once were, but enough are left to control the party on that subject, and indeed, all others of ti financial sort. A Democrat is a man who hates taxa? tion. The support of a government or anv sort is very offensive to bim. and the leaders are popular so long as they cater 'o this healthy prejudice. Jack Cade's financial no? tions, as portrayed by Shakspeare, are pecu? liarly Democralic. I see Jack in Con? gress now, returned by a constituency in the full exercise of Democralic in? terests in this direction. The Hon. Wm. Mungen ls a true type of the Dem? ocracy. He ls their Jack Cade to-day, and his idea of a tlosmial policy is to wipe out old scores and to^tgin again. This sort will have thc nt^vt House of Representa? tives, and not the learned Brooks and volatile Cox, who representithe Democratic bondhold? ers. Wait until Brick Pomerov ,fc Co. put in an appearance, and then let Kelley plead for a protective taritf. it will be good tun to note how such financiers will receive and act upon such propositions. And if will be. further on, great comfort lo see how the people wiil rally around, and sustain these gentlemen in their short cul to prosperity. ? think I hear Brick on the lloor promulgating his idea of a finan? cial treatment ol'the national debi. SUA'SLIISJE OX A DA UK SPOT. Some Comments of a Northern Radical Paper on Men and Thing* in South Carolina. _ 4 Thc New York Sun is lately paying a good deal of aitention to the course of men and politics in South Carolina. We copy some random paragraphs from its lively columns : HAItl) OX MASSACHUSETTS. But a short time ago Mr. Dunn^the inde? pendent candidate for Congress in the First Congressional District of South Carolina, spoke in Florence. He said that Whittemore was a thJef. having pilfered several thousand dollars from Mr. Shaw, a merchant in Boston. He supported this assertion with authenticated letters and affidavits. When he had concluded, Mr. Flood, colored, the postmaster ol Flor? ence, mounted the rostrum and said : "I do not question that Whittemore may be what Mr. Dunn says he Is: but I must Inquire, mav not Mr. Dunn, who is also from Massachusetts', be also a thief?" It seems to us that this is rather hard on Massachusetts. THE RULE OF THE I?SG. On the urgent solicitation of a large number of white people who reside in Darlington Dis? trict. S. C., Captain Lloyd, a Southerner, who is a inan of fine education and refinement, was appointed a magistrate. A case came before him that under the law compelled him to issue an order restraining two colored tenants from unlawfully holding over on some property which tiley had hired. Tue disreputable po? litical ring which exists in Columbia had Captain Lloyd summarily removed from ollice by authority of Governor Scott. That Lloyd did only what was right, however, ls continued by one of the higher courts of the State having decided that the"tenants must be ejected. HOW WHITTEMORE CONDUCTS THE CANVASS. Tlie disreputable Wlilttemore is very busy visiting the negroes in their cabins, eating and drinking with'them, and otherwise success? fully conducting the political campaign, which will terminate probably with his re-election to Congress. Mrs. Whittemore ls also active. Standing and campaigning for her husband on the plat form.of the railroad station lu Darling? ton, she kisses the negro wenches whom she meets there, and the dramatic effect is power? ful. The wenches are very grateful, and quick? ly balance the condescension of Mrs. Whitlc moiv by reciprocating the favor in kind. Tills lip service also helps Mrs. Whiitemore's school along, where she generously teaches the young negroes for twenty-live cen?-; a head per month. The pupils ure vei-y numerous, ?ind the Income wlilch she accumulates is highly advantageous to herself and husband. THE BEST OK TUE BUNCH. Massachusetts sent at least one man of per? sonal good character to South Carolina. We mean Mr. Sawyer, now a United Slates sena? tor from that State. He graduated at Harvard College, had charge of a public school in Bos? ton, was induced to take charge of the normal schooi of South Carolina, remained In that State during the greater part of the war, or so long as his salary supported him, was treated with great respect by the South Caro? linians, came North, a^aln went to Charleston, got the position of collector of internal reve? nue in that district, and performed the duties ol" the office with great ability and in the best, possible spirit ol' kindness toward the people. When the nominations were made lor United Stales senator, one of his opponents was Mackey, who claimed to be a worthy Republi? can, and another was the Hon. James B. Campbell. Mr. Sawyer wits elected by Camp? bell's friends joining their votes with those wiio were Sawyer's supporters. SCOTT IS U.iilliUllU. The Governor Visits Prank Arnim Moses in the Parly-.V .Jolly Radical Housewarming. Hie Augusta Chronicle ol Tuesday says : Governor Robert K. Scott, the ohio carpet? bagger who rule- and rllles the people ol' South Carolina, arrived itt Hamburg yesterday afternoon from Columbia, The exponent of the higher law. the Winchester rille, came from Columbia on the four o'clock train for tim pur? pose of paying a visit to Frank Arnim, tho State senator from Edgelleld County, and an ardent loyalist, and attending a party given b" the latter last evening. Il seems that although Arnim has only been assisting in running the government machine for a comparatively short time, he ha? experienced the same for? tune os the rest of the band Of loyal banditti, ami has made money enough lo sport linc clot iles and horses, and to build a new house. The mansion having been recently finished, he inaugurated its opening by a grand house wanning last night, to which he invited the Governor and oilier notabj.es from the State capital. Accompanying his Excellency was the notorious renegade and Speaker of the House of Representatives. Franklin J. Moses, ot" Sumter, the ex-secessionist and lire-eater, Of Fort Sumter memory. Several members of Scott's suite, and officials of a lesser light, alvo came over on the train. The party was met at the cal's by a band ol music and was received with tlie usual quantity of tooting and other demonstrations of delight by tho enthusiastic scalawags and negroes ol' Ham? burg. We presume that the party was treated very hospitably last, night, and wen.' offered every luxury "that the market could afford" or tlie taxpayers' money purchase. H I S K E i" . A.
