-=IheJnng columns of announcements In the
London Times, intended for mends ta Paris, have
for some time been? rrequent subject of remark
and* people have wondered what chance there
was of their ever reaching the eyes for which
they were meant. The means adopted for this -
purpose' &re explained In the Times of Jan?
uary.-80: "Those pages of the paper which
contained communications to relatives in Paris
were photographed with great care by the Lon?
don Stereoscopic and Photograph Company on
piena of thin and almost transparent paper,
abant an Inch and a hair la length by an Inch in
width. On these Impresstons there could be seen
by the naked eye only jjro legible words, the
Tinies, and six narrow brown bands representing
the ali columns of printed matter forming a page
of the newspaper. Under the microscope, how?
ever; the brown spaces become legible, and every
Une of the-newspaper was found to have been dis
^taetry copied, and .with the greatest clearness*
The photographs were sent to Bordeaux for trans?
mission thence by carrier pigeon to Parla, When
received there th.-y were m ag nineo, by tho ala
of a'magic lant?n*, to a large size and thrown
upon a Boreen. A staff of clerks immediately
transcribed the messages add sent them on* to the
places Indicated by the advertisers." -*.'
-?Cadet Grant, whose fame rests more oh h?sre-' ''

than oa his being the President's ?JOB, has oeen ,
interviewed by a New York World correspond ant, '
wno found him awed built young fellow, deep- '
chested, broad-shouldered, and thia ta '.heflanks. '
He possesses a fcqen. quick eye, anu ls neither
handsome nor the reverse. It would not require 1
a vfcry fanciful observer to . notice about his
month the lines or a somewhat dogged character,

there will be no serious opposition to Grant's re-,

Governor Scott and the Union Murders.
The special message o?. Governor Scott in
relation to the Union murders is AS conser?
vative as his previous message upon the
troubles in the up-country. He repeats that
no further legislation.is needed, for the sup?
pression., of outrag?e and the protection of
the people, in addition to that suggested in
! former messages, which looked only*to a
J strengthening of the judicial' arh^. bf the
government.' But he ?3 justly severe in his
dew un c ia lion of -murder and assassination,,
and declares that "it is of thesatmost im?
portance that measures- should betaken
." not only to deter the turbulent from com
/' nutting came, but to punish, with the
"severer penalties cf the law, those guilty
" of such-outrages apon civilization as have
'?-recently characterized a portion of our
"Sta^e? incited either by a spirit of revenge,
" dr for the purpose of potting out of the
" way those who might become dangerous
" witnesses when confronted with those sus?
pected of participation-in previous mur
." tiers." These indignant words-are justi?
fied by what 'are believed to be the facts,
and they express the settled -' opinions of the
great mass of the people. We trust to time,
to oar own exertions, and, above all, to the
just Ged of oar fftaers, for a redemption
from the myriad evita, of misgovernment, and
of social and political disorder. We must
keep our hearts pure and our hands Clean,
or we'cannot hope to save our people. .Mis?
fortunes enough we hare had, but a greater
?ian all remains behind if this State is to
t tem pt to redress its wrongs by the foul
crimes of disguised desperadoes. ? - There
might be something of heroism in a stand?
up fight in-the broad light of day, with the
old battle-flag waving overhead. - But there
is nothing bnt sin and shame in acts like
those which have' been committed in one
unfortunate county. They, are unwise,
they are inexpedient, they are dangerous
they are utterly wrong in the sight of Qod
and man. , '. -. a.
Governor Scott, in his message, pointed
ont to the Legislature " the paramount im
" portance " of electing an efficient presid?
ing judge in the place of Judge Vernon.
These are his words :
j "I would earnestly appeal to the Legislature
that In their choice all partisan prejudices or
personal preferences should be laid aside, and
a man selie ted for that highly responsible po?
sition whose character is a guarantee for his
faithful and fearless discharge of his duty. A
high-minded and honorable judge will always
sink the partisan In the patriot when sitting in
judgment on the lives and reputation of his
fellow-citizens and the character and welfare
of the State."
In relation to the call made for United
Sjtates troops, Governor Scott says that he
hhs no doubt that a sufficient garrisou will
he promptly sent to the leading points in the
unprotected section of country, This will
put an end to all trouble. With Federal
soldiers stationed in the up-country, the
Conservative classes will have a rallying
point, and there will not be a whisper of
riot To send the negro militia to Union, is
to send them to bloody graves. Tosend
United States troops, ls to insure quietness
We ure glad that Governor Scott stands
firm ia his determination to uphold the civil
law, and io ase only United States troops
Where a militar}' force is necessary. In this
course he will be sustained by the people of
the whole State.
An English View of Free Trade.
' Mr. John Stuart Mill, in a letter accepting
his election as honorary member of the New
York Liberal Club, introduces a brief but
forcible lecture on the necessity of a free-trade
policy in America. Protection he designates
as on employment of the powers of the gov?
ernment to tax* the many for the bene?t of
the few. - Whatever gain there is, is made
by the few alone. The laborers are not
benefited, wage3 do not range higher, und
the employers in the protected trades are
alone profited. This, says Mr. Mill, was a
system worthy of Great Britain under her
nu ref ot-med constitution, when the powers
of l?gislation were in the hands of a limited
close of great land-owners and wealthy man?
ufacturers; bat in a Democratic nation like
the United States it is a signal instance of
dupery. He says he has a higher opinion
af the intelligence of the American people
than to believe.that a handful of manufactu?
rers will be able to retain, by fallacy and
sophistry,, that power of-levying a'toll on
aver! oUier person's earnings which, the pow-,
erial aristocracy of ' England, with-all their
political ascendancy and social prestige,
have not been able to keep possession of.
Ur. Mill is thorough in his denial of the
benefits of protection, maintaining that the
consequent evils cannot-be removed by any
readjustment of details, and the protection,
just so far as it fulfils its purpose, abstracts
from the aggregate wealth of mankind, and
makes a loss to the nations who thus force
their industry out of its natural course.

s Horley &s introduced igbill, in-foe
House of?Repr?^entatives, creating a sterl?
ing funded debt, to be exclusively used in
?? payment of the Existing public debt of
fthe; State. We understand that the bill also
provides t1 nt no new debi shall be contract?
ed until tb J question of its creation has been.
.submitted to the people, and approved by a.
two-thirds affirmative vole. The details of
Mr." Hurley'S'scheme have, not reached ne?
but weare confident that any measure will
give general -satisfaction which limita the ?
public power of borrowing money and run?
ning into debt The State debt, as it stands,
is far too large, and for aa mach of it ns waa
contracted, by the present Radical govern-'
ment there has been little "value received."
Yet, if the people eau be'aesured that the
debt will not be increased, and that it will
be allowed to stand at the present high
I water mark, there ls no question that the
whole debt will be promptly and honestly i
paid. _ _\
THE earnest protest of the citizens of

THE first number of the Marlboro' Times,
?which succeeds the"- Bennetlsville Journal,
was issued on Wednesday last. The editors
in their salutatory article, say that they regar?
the reconstruction acts aud the recent amend-'
ments to the. constitution asr having-all the
binding force and efficacy of law, and that in
political as well as' lu other matters, they
think it best to allow the dead past to bury its
dead.. They will yield a support to the ad?
ministrations-ot President- Grant and' Gover?
nor Scott, so tar as .they ''manifest a dlspoai
" lion, ia the management of affairs, to con
" suit the best interests of the people." They
express the hope.'that "the firm and manly
stand*' taken by Governor Scott is but the
precursor of other acts on his part, showing
that he realizes the Importance ot the position
he occupies "as Governor of the whole people
? of South Carolina and not as the mere lead?
er ol a political party," and say that "a firm
' adherence to the true interests of the-people,
" a disposition to restrain those lawless ?pi ri ts
j* who foster discontent and stir up strife, and
a course of conduct looking to the reduc?
tion ot the immense burthen of taxation
which weighs like an incubus upon our
people, while it would array against bim

S* POISONOUS MEDICINES.-THE
theory that the virus or disease can bc safely
counteracted by doses of poison ls false aud dan?
gerous. Within the last twenty.ave years not
less than a score of virulent poisons have been
added lo the repository of the medical profession.
They are given in small doses, otherwise they
would destroy life Immediately; but even In
minute qu.iuiitlcB, (hey produce, ultimately, very
disastrous effects. It ls unwise aud unnhllosophl
cal to employ, as remedie?, powerrul and Insidi?
ous drug?, which, In subjugating one disease, sow
the seeds or another si Ul more unmanageable.
[ None or these terrible medicaments operates with
as much directness and certainty upon i he canses
i of dis>a*e as HOSTRTTER'S s roMACH BITTERS,
a tonic and corrective, without a single deleteri?
ous Ingr?dient Cit its composition. Arsenld anil
quinta are given for intermittents; bromide of
ppiasduni for nervous disorders; strychnine and
prussic acid for general debility; mercuiy, lu
various forms, for ?Iver complaint; preparations
of chloroform and opium for sleeplessness; and
yet these deady drugs do not compare, as speel
iics fur the diseases above enumerated, with that
wholesome vegetable iuvlgoraut and alterative
while they arc all so pernicious that it ls astonish?
ing any physician should take the responsibility
of prescribing them. Let invalids, for their own
sakes, try the Bitters before they resort to the
