A few words on the subject of the relief for
the Flench. The sufferings of unhappy France
have elicited the liveliest sympathy here, and
the aggregate sum obtained lor the victims of |
the war must be very great, though HO full
statistics have yet boen gives. B^ihe "request
ol Bishdp Potter, collections were made last
Sunday inmost of the churches of thlsEplRco

Numerous fairs and concerts have been glveu
with happy pecuniary results. One* of these,
given at Steinway Hall, though a- poor affair,
musically speaking, netted $3388.- "This was
especially for Strasbourg. Several mediocre
artists have hoisted themselves into temporary ,
notice by giving concerta "for the benefit of |
France,'* using the condition of that nation as
a mere" advertisement. In every quarter a
genuine sympathy has been suowa, and, os be?
fore said, vast sums of money have been con?
Now, what becomes of all this money ? That |
is what people are beginning to ask. We have
no reports from France to show that one-half
of it has ever reached the sufferers, for whom
lt was intended. We hear from Paris that the
stories of sufiVrlng during the 6lege were very
greatly exaggerated, and it ts said ' that the
material sent from London to the Paris poor
have been seen exposed for safe ia Paris
shops. In fact, the suffering in Puris is proba?
bly no greater than in other large ?ties at all
seasons, In the country districts, there is un?
doubtedly much distress, but the difficulty is
to reach that distressed class, and there is a
ireneraf disposition of lale to demand a more
nti mate knowledge of what becomes ot the
fuods. *I think' if the matter were tc be fully
investigated, it would be lound that a great

[Correspondence or the New York Son.]
COLOMBIA, fc?. C., March 15.
Governor Scott has just concluded a confer
entn^wlth certain leading Conservative citi?
zens Irom various portions oCthe State._ The
Governor invited these gentlemen, to. meet
him to consider the beBt means of securing
and preserving thc peace. With reference to
the recent troubles, their causes, effects, apd
remedies, there was a great deal of plain talk
on both sides. The gentlemen representing
the people of the Slate were very clear and
intelligent In their statements os to the causes
Of the troubles. They said the people of South
Carolina cared not Under'what political name
they were governed, Republican or Democrat,
but they did want respectable and honest men
in office, and they also wanted the authorities
to cease pushing the negroes forward Into
places from which white men are excluded.
They were willing to give J^ie negroes equal
political rights, bat they protest against allow?
ing him at all times and m all places to assert
his superiority.
The Governor vjas requested tb disarm his
negro militia. The delegation claimed that
this was one ot the worst features of thelr-pre
sent government, the placing of arms ia the
hands of ignorant and irresponsible negroes,
and refusing to. issue an equal proportion to
such companies of white militias have been
organized. By doing this, as well as extend?
ing the lime for the
the delegation thought that peace might be
secured. They describe the .feeling through?
out the country though as most intense against
further taxation without representation, for
their present condition is that in effect. As one
of the gentlemen-said to raeyesterday.lo Bpeak
injr of this: "A former slave of mine is now in
the Lower House, and is considered one of
the most ignorant and corrupt negroes in it. I
know that he does not pay one cent tax, for he
does not own a dollar's worth of taxable prop?
erty. His vole ls for sale on every measure
that comes up, and, indeed, ho never votes
upon any but adjournment measures unless
he is paid for it. I pay over $2000 taxes to the
State aqd county, and nm even denied the
right to vote. The only way the class to which
I belong can have any voice at all is by perso?
nal appeal to the Executive: In short, -the
people-who supply thc means to support the
government, nave oo representation, while
th? Ignorant and vicious, who contribute
nothing at all, have full sway."
These arguments were forcibly presented to
the Governor, not as an excuse lor the out?
rages which have been committed, but as ac?
counting for the feeilng which produces such
r?sults. The Governor had two or three meet?
ings with the'delegation, and after expressing
his opinions quite Ireely in regard to the law?
lessness ot the upper counties, said that In def?
erence to the wishes of the respectable* people
of the State, he would disarm the negro militia
and ex teed the time lor the payment of taxes
in such counties as might desire it. Accord?
ingly, atv order was Issued to-day recalling the
Winchester rifles that have caused so much
trouble, and lt is therefore more than likely
that peace and quiet will orrce more reign tn
?York and Chester. *
Everything hos been quiet in' these coun?
ties, though since lost week the imported Ku
Klux have departed as quietly as lt came.
Troops have been arriving for several-days,
aud are sent up as fast as they come, but lt is
more than likely that the dauger ls over now,
and that there will be no more disturbances of
any kind. The Governor's conciliatory policy
has alanued his compatriots of the Executive
. Such high-toned citizens and legislators as
(he Hon. Joe Crews acense him ol recreancy
to the Republican faith, and assert that he bas
gone over bodily to the Democrats. Joe
Crews is the man whom Kerrigan accused of
wishing to go .into the assassination business
on Joint account' with himself. Like other
members of the lower house, Joseph's ante?
cedents will not bear avery rigid scrutiny.
He was formerly
and many a dollar has crept into ids pockets
by the sale ot negroes at .the auction block.
Now as then Joseph sees that negro-trading is
a profitable business, und he has managed to
manipulate negro votes greatly to his pecuni?
ary advantage. Of ail men in Sonlh Carolina
Joe Crews ls perhaps the myst detested. He
ls certainly the most unblushingly dishonest
member of the Legislature, for the reason-that
he admits all his evil transactions, and tells ex?
actly how jobs are puf up.
An Incident occurred at the last session,
whereby the smoothfaced Joseph's modesty
was made to alilne lorth with refulgent spleu
dor. It appears thai an investigating com?
mittee had been appointed by the Assembly to
inquire Into cerlaln transactions of a pecu?
liarly interesting nature, and. with its usual
prodigality, the House voted $10.000 to pay ihe
investigators' expenses. Tn? lovely Joseph
was made chairman'of this committee, and
the money.plac?d subject to his order. Tbe
cotninittce remained lu existence several
months, but It was never known that any good,
was accomplished. It never went out of
Columbia, and, .ia short, never really in?
vestigated anything. It soon attracted
the attention of an envious member, who
one morning got up and moved that.
Uncle Joseph's committee be instructed
to report. Unfortunately, Uncle Joe didn't
have'anything to report, "and it was then
moved that the farce be discontinued. But
now came the settlement. Ten thousand dol?
lars hau been-placed in old Joe's, hands, and
Joseph never said a word about returning a
cent ot it. Some of his admirers softly insin?
uated that Joseph had "gone through" the ten
thousand. Joseph at once repelled the base
charge, and asked toi'mi investigating commit?
tee. Of course it was necessary to whitewash
Joe, and his. request was, thefore, granted.
But, alas ! the remarkable candor displayed by
the only witness summoned, who happened to
be Joe himself, knocked spots out of the plans
of ihe whitewash committee.
'.How much of this $10,000 did your commit?
tee expend. Mr. .Crews ?" asked the chairman.
"It expended it all, slr,'' said Joseph, very
Q.-For what purpose was this large amount
expended ?
Joseph sat nonplussed .and very troubled
in spirit. He finally accounted in a fashion for
about $2500, but couldn't furnish a voucher for
a single dollar more.
Q.-Mr. Crews, you have explained the ex?
penditure of $2500. In what way did you ex?
pend the remaining $7500 ?
Here was a poser, and Joseph winced under
ihe gaze of a hundred interesting and sympa?
thizing eyes," for all were curious to know how
he would get out of lt. But Joe was equal to
the task. He hud a happy thought. He had
heard somewhere thauno wit ness-could bo
made to criminate himself; so in the midst of
his despair his countenance assumed its bright?
est emile ns he answered : "I cannot answer
that question without criminating myself."
The chairman caved, and Joseph retired,
completely whitewashed. The committee re?
ported that there was no evidence against Jo?
seph, and all was again serene. Such are our
legislators. i
The other night, while the Governor was re?
ceiving the "peace delegation," Joseph delib?
erately walked Into the Executive chamber
and took a seat on the Bola bv the side of
General Kershaw. The latter arose Da a digni?
fied niauner, and said, "Governor, I will not
sit in the same room-with Mr.-Crews. Either
he br I must retire." Joseph gathered hiih
sell up and sloped. And now he feeUbjtter
toward the Governor for havmg talked with
the -'d-d rebels," and be swears that Scott is
getting ceady .to join the "rebel,, crusade"
against the Republican party. Poor Joe)
doesn't see ?hat the world moves on, and that j
a time is coming when intelligence, education
and honesty must agaitr find expression with?
