WASHINGTON, D. C., Jtine 13.
Upon opening of the; Criminal Court, this
morning, ex-Congressman C. C. Bowen, con-^
victed of bigamy, in whose case the motion
for a suspension of sentence was argued yes-:
terday, appeared in court with Iiis latest wi?e,
Mrs. Petigru King Bowen, and Messrs. Riddle '
and Moore, of hie eounse.1.- The hour beiDg
early, there were but few spectators In the
JUDGE OLIN'S DECISION.
Judge Glin said this is a motion to suspend
the seni tpnee of the law in this case, and, as a
consequence, to let the prisoner go at large on
bail until the exceptions taken af the trial ar?
disposed of by the court in bane. I have
byard a somewhat protracted argument on
this question, conducted with much research
and learning. The conclusion at which I have
arrived, after a careful examination ; of this
* question, ls that it is my duty to pronounce
T the sentence of the law upon the verdict in
this case. Possibly this court has the power
to suspend passing sentence " lor any crime
charged in an indictment after the verdict of
cullty by the Jury, but from all the authorities
it is, I think, clear that such a power should
never be exercised unless it was Clearly and
raanilestly apparent to the court that iojustice
bad been done the defendant. S>nce the trial
ofthis case. I have carefully reviewed the ex
ceptions taken on the trial to my rulings, and
I am unable to discover any error in them,
and so believing, I think iL my duty lo pro?
nounce the senteuce of the law.
There ls another question incidentally in?
volved in tliis case which I do not decide, and
that is, whether upon pronouncing sentence
in ibis case, and ween a bill of exceptions has
been ?lied, a Judge of this court may not sus?
pend the execution of tbe sentence and let the
party to ball until the questions raised by the
bill ol exceptions have been settled by the
court in bane. This question I do not decide.
I am ol the opinion if I hare power to sus?
pend the execution of the sentence, any Judge
of this court has the. same power, ana as I
have come to the conclusion that I committed
no error on the trial o? the cause, an applica?
tion-to me to suspend the sentence would be
The Judge asked : "Do you wish to say any?
thing, Mr. Bowen, in addition to what your
counsel has said ? If so, you can hare the
privilege or doing so."
HR. BOWEN'S REMARKS.
Bowen arose, and as he did so Mrs.
King*Bowen conrulsively clung to bim, bat
finally he persuaded her to take her seat, and
Ii your Honor pleases, I am aware that per?
haps anything ? can Bay'would hare nb effect-'
I will say thin, and perhaps all that I shall say:
In this transaction I took the step that I did-,
last August in good faith, and for several rea- '
sons: First, I had relied upon the record I bad !
obtained In New Tork; and here let me say to
my friends that If there was anything wrong
in that record lt was the fault of those parties,
who took my money add obtained that record
in 18C5. If your Honor will bear with me one
moment I will go over that point, as p?chaps
it ls tb? last time I shall say anything ufcon
this question : i
The entry made In that book, and the testi
* mony, unimpeached, ia this court, as it stands
to-day, ls that the whole entry, though there
- are erasures there, waa in the handwriting ol'
one person, corroborated by the expert that
the assistant district attorney hImself put upon,
the stand. Further than that, the clerk testi?
fied that it was in the handwriting of the clerk'
in that office who died three years ago. That
testimony stands to-day uncontradlcted. One
step further and 1, am done, so far as that re
cord ls concerned. One year ago she (point- ?
lng la tbe'dlrectloa of his wire) enclosed her
money to the clerk of that court, and .obtain- (
ed a copy of that decree, and on that copy sue <
IP THE RECORD IN NSW TORS WAS WRUNG,
lt is the fault of those men, and the way they
do business there. I am now done, so far as
the record is concerned. .Outside of that, the
act of Congress, which I had seen and read,
and which I had shown te lawyers, there was
but one universal opinion In regard to. They
all said that that covered the case. Much was

A BAS PON 150 THE WOMAN IN AUGUSTA.
Il I &>uld hare opened my mouth,' I could
_ have shown perhaps why the abandonment or
desertion took place. But my mouth was
closed; so was hers. f"will say this much: I
would hare been willing to have had ber open
her mouth upon that .question. Whatever
may hare happened in 1852- the difference
between us at that-time I -do not plead as any
A BOT OS 18 ANn A MOTHER OF 3Q -
I say I do not mean that/ Working for a liv
ins:, toiling every day, was I to sit down there
in that little town and 'starve to death ? Whe-a
I went was she to go with me ? If she did not
go, whose lault was it? This could have been
shown. I made every effort that I could make
in 1862. I made what might be called the last
-I sent a messenger to her trying to settle
this difficulty. It was pot Into her hands;
though, when- the messenger weat and
knocked at the door, he was told that no such
person lived In the house. Alter persistent
Inquiry, he found a person who saki
' HER NAME WAS FRANCES EICKS,
and that perhaps the letter was intended for
her. Wheo she was told that the letter was
irom me, and that I waa stopping at a -hotel
in the very town, she said: "jake the. letter
back; I want nothing more to do with him.
Tell him to 8^nd me no more messages." The
next day I sent again, and with a. similar re?
sult. That la the testimony in th'is case. The
district attorney says that! could have found
the woman: that I could bare gone to her at
Augusta. Grant that I could., bul had I auy
encouragement at any time'after that that I
would meet with any better reception ? Was
I to go there and force myself Into the house 2
Nay. no ! But lime passed oo, and, as I say,.
El 18<*5 THE DITORCE WA8 GRANTED.
I troubled myself no farther. I did not secrete
myself. I did not run Away; but, within one
h attired miles of that woman, I sat down in
puWic life; and she (Mrs. Hicks,) nor any ot
her friends, caa to-day say she ever, made an
loquiry; thatshe ever opened her mouth, not?
withstanding the newspapers* were Ailed with
my nam?-?roin day today, being twice elected
to tbejpositlon which I had the honor to All
on-the hill (the capitol.) This woman
NEVER OPENED HER MOUTH
all this time. When I made up my mind to.
get married, the newspapers heralded it all
over the country. It was shown tha*t no one
had any claim upon me-, for no one said a
word. They all stood mute, and when inquiry
was made of the very man who took the stand
-Hatcher-when Inquiry was mude of him he
denied to the counsel in Augusta that he knew
ani thing about lt; and here let me say that, so
MALICE AND PREJUDICE
is concerned, I do not wish to say anything
about that, though I could say much Buuut
flee it to say that this prosecution-ii you are
pleased to call lt that-grew oat ol this, and
ibis alone. I stood In the way, politically,- 01
someone. I must be gotten out of the way.
Ina few moments more
THE SCENE WILL CLOSE,
(with head bowed, evidently.muck affected.)
?5o far as politics is concerned, this is atan end.
They did not go to'this woman at the com?
mencement ot ihls prosecution. They traced
up some one else. They came here and got un
indictment. It made but little difference upon
what I was convicted, so long as I was gotten
out ot the way.
A WOMAN BT THE NAME OK PARK
was lound, who bad Bald, previously to thar,
in her own handwriting, that sba. had no
claims uponane. On that Indictment I was put
on Icial in this very room. At the very time
tnaxl was put .upon trial the district attorney
I ia?--: In bis hand the same evidence that be hud
here; and while he sat here holding that evi?
dence be urged ray conviction in the Park
case on the ground that Mra. Park was my
lawful wife. Hatcher and Christian, the two
witnesses In the last case, wereconcerned
nene In the first; but not a word did they say.
Why, then, did Hatcher not Bay, "I have an
aunt in Augusta who feels aggrieved ?" No,
but there he sar, saying to himself, "So long
as this man can be convicted, go on.:' They
failed in their conviction. In less than an
nour niter that failure I waB arrested npon a
warrant in the case of Hicks, and Trom that
time down-to this lt has been going on.
I AM TIRED AND WORN OUT
with this pursuit of me. The whole combined
South at one time Attempted-to fight the Gov?
ernment of the United States. They con?
tinued- lt for lour years, and fayed. It is use
les.'-, it is foll.? for any one man to attempt
tha'. One raati, without money, and, perhaps,
only a limited number of Iriends, to cope with
this government in a prosecution- of this or
anv O? her kind. I Bay it is impossible. They
p?? iheir spies. They p y their men. The?
ransack the country fain one end to the
other, having all the money needed at their
command, j n this I do not mean to cast any
Imputations or reflections upon the district
attorney .or his assistant I only say that I
am tired and worn, out.
A new trial ls spoken of. I do not know
that I have any. assurances ol' any .better rer
Buir. Not that I have acted wrong in this case
Intentionally, jour honor: but sent to prison

WITHOUT MONET, WITHOUT FRIENDS,

These gentlemen (district attorney and. Iris
assistant ) having the privilege and the means
of roaming the country tn hunt up all sorts of
witnesses, it seems to me that I could Dot hope,
for a.much better result.
lu conclusion, I say that whatever punish?
ment may fall upon my head, I .stand here to
receive it. From the commencement of this
affair I have-not shrinked.
' I MARRIED THAT WOMAN
(pointing:tc his wile) last Augustin good faith.
Though the laws ot the country may annul,
that, I have a firm belief that the-laws ol God
never will. Wbea Whatever punishment that
may be inflicted by this court shall have been
served om. if we are spared (turning to his
wife, who rises and receives bis extended
hand) I return to her. [Mn?. Bowen here
.clung closely .to her .husband-] Jira. Bowen
in a moment or two resumed her seat, at the
request of her husband.
Mr. Bowen continued. I contend, or did,
that that statute ol limitation was a sufficient
bar to the action of bigamy. I agree with your
Honor that If it had been proved; here that I
had deserted that ?roman In Augusta", ano
gone off, .that that statute would hot have ap?
plied. But such is not the fact. Sitting down
within one hundred miles of that woman, and
ehe refusing to communicate with me, she
never making a solitary inquiry lor me during
that 'fife years." I say that that statute was a
sufficient bnr (o the indictment that was ob?
tained here In this court.
One word more, and I am done. To these
gentlemen who kindly offered to go my bail, I
am much obliged. I have acted by them, as 1
have In this whole transaction, tn good faith.
To-day tiley are relieved. I am truly gratefut
Now. your Hone, I ara "done. Pass your
sentence. You know the case and the cir?
cumstances that surround lt. -
The Court. The sentence of the' -court is,
Bowen, that you be confined tor two years in
the Albany penitentiary. ?
. A WIFE'S BEVOTION. .
Mrs. Bowen, clinging closely to her hus?
band, in a feeling, manner said In a fl rm-yat
gentle voice : "IT rf e did it, I did lt. If he Js te
oe sentenced, please sentence me. You nave,
no right, your Honor, before God Almighty^
to visit punishment upon him alone for what I
did also. Wi til that record fn my baud I stund
before this court and before my God. I pro?
cured lt. It was obtained in good faith. If Ir?
regular, if invalid, we are not in fault. Oh,
sentence me. I cannot part from him. He Is
(oo pure, too good. You know him not; I' do
know. him. ?
** FfNE AXD IMPRISONMENT.
The Couru Madam, I have a duty to per-,
form here, and, while.I sympathize with jouj
from the bottom of my heart, I must still per?
form that duty.
Tn addition, Mr. Bowen, to the Imprison?
ment for two years in tfie albany penitentiary,
you will pay a fine of $250. I hope the war?
den of the Jail, if you ire committed to his
custody, will postuoue tho execution ol the
sentence until you nave an opportunity to ap?
ply to some of my brethren on this bul of ex?
ceptions for* a stay of the execution of the
s enterte. I may be mistaken, I do not prc
' ft'ss to be unerring about this, but I have given
my best Judgment to it. The case is BO sod
that lt draws blood from the heart. You are a
man ot great Intelligence. You are surround?
ed lu such a way that it is sad to be compelled,
as I think I am compelled, to' pass* the sen?
tence of the law. I wish from tue bottom of
in y heart that lt were otherwise. But I have
brought my best Judgment to the case. The
law must be administered, however big? your
social position may be, and however sorrowful
the surroundings may be.* If I bad any doubt
abocft the .rightfulness-ot the verdict, I might
hare taken another course. But I dp not see
howl could do it... While I sit here I must
perform my duty as I understand it. .
BOWEN* IN JAIL.
The prisoner' and his wife ' then resume*
I heir sear, and clung to eacli other, both .sob?
bing audibly. The court was then adjourned,
j and Mr. Boweu was directed by the marshal to.
his offices where he was followed by .Mrs.
Bowen and one or two personal friends, and
waited long enough lo receive his letters from
the capitol, wheo, .the commitment.having
been made, out, he was escorted to jail in a
carriage by Bailiffs Sprague ana stahl.
On arriving at the Jail he was soon

CRAWFOROBVILLE, Ga., June 4.
This is a straggling, shabby, dirty Southern
town, of perhaps 4.00 or 500 inhabitants. The
streets are without sidewalk?, and tedestrlans
take their choice between walking in the mud _
or dust of the roadways or among the rank
weeds .that fill the broad space3 be
tween the wheel-tracks and the fences.
The decayed frame houses were painted 6o
long ago that they now Bhow no traces ol
paint.. This ls the county town ol the County
ot Taliaferro-a name thal has degenerated, in
the mouths ol the people, Into Tolllver-?nd
in the centre ol' a weed-overgrown square in
the lown there ls a lillie ugly brick courthouse*
but no business seems to be transacted lulu
Around the square stand four or five stores,
with large vacant spaces between; each store
lias its complement of ball a dozen dirty,' yel?
low-faced loafer3. -in. butternut pantaloons',
coarse colton shirts, and broad-brimmed
slouched felt-hats,.who were hanging about
the doorway and chewing tobacco ifs vigorous/
ly as If that were the chief business of life.
The,rude little tavern has no outward Indica?
tion ol' readiness to furnish entertainment, ex?
cept a much-whittled bench upon the porch,
and a wash-basin and towel for public ni rf.
There ls a church or two, but no nubile school,
no newspaper, no telegraph office, although
ihe wires rim through the place, amt no par?
ticular sign of-modern* civilization except the
van of a travelling photographer established
hmong the weeds on ihe.square.
On Hie outskirts ot the village, across the
railway track, is Liberty Hall, (the residence,
ol Alex. H. Stephens, late vice-President cd
the Southern Confederacy,) so named, u?t
with any reference to the mansion of lue hos?
pitable old fellow in Goldsmith's comedy, but
io Indicate the interest ot its owoer in the
cause of human liberty; for even here In t?u?
South, lu the old days ot slavery, men talked,
with, enlbiislasin about liberty, meaning, of
course. Che liberty of the while race. Liberty
Hull-is a plain waite farm-house, with a large
sloping lawn In iront, shaded by locust trees
and numerous negro bouses, and other out?
buildings ut the side and in ihe rear, all fresh?
ly painted. A sprightly mulatto girl took In
my cardt and returned at once to tue porch to
escor?me through an arrow half, past a little,
plalply-iureisbed parlor, through a large room
watled around from floor lo celling - with
books, and into a-room at the back of the,
house.' Here I found a" little withered, wrin?
kled old mao, With wouderluiJy bright brown
eyes, while hair, and a ira me BO emaciated,
that it seemed to be literally skin and bones.
He wore a homespun suit ol butternut color,
and fiad an old black felt hat upon hie head.
This perocn was Mr. Stephens. He half-rose
as' I entered, and extended a hand so gaunt)
and fleshless, that ft did not seem
to be Hie banu ol a living man,
aud Immediately afterward be sank back
into his easy chair.- At bis rlgnt
band stood a round table, piled up with a con?
fused heap of books, letters, newspaper*,
manuscripts, and writing materials. A pair
ot crutches leaned against the wall on the
oilier sk'e of bis chair, and be rested his feet
on tile rounds ol unother chairt io which lay
an ugly','iat, brindled dog,' lhat the files would
not allow io sleep. There were two beds in
the room, a bureau covered with boitlea ot
everv size and shape, containing medicines
and liquors, and a grate in which ? coal ?fire
was burning, although lt was a warm Juue
day. A single picture, representing Faith
btuoding by the cross, hung above the mantel,
which rivalled the bureau In ils array ol boi]les.
'There were niles ol books upon the floor, and
articles of clothing scattered about the room.
Mr. Stephens said he was always glad ' to see
-visitors and to talk upon public affairs, but
that be invariably insisted that correspondents
who called upon him.should not publish what
he said, because be had no wish to be brought
before the public. This prohibition 1 auer?
ward prevailed un him to modify so far as td
consent that. I might mention whatever he
should say that had heretofore been made pub?
lic, and tie (old hts nephew, a young man who
came in while we were talking, to give me a
copy of an Augusta paper, which Le sal dcor.- j
tamed an authoritative statement Ci- his views
ai> lar as he wished them to be knecmb
Mr. Stephens denounced the Republican '
leader-fin the strongest terms as guilty of "the i
most outrageous perfidy" in prosecuting the ,
war for the avowed* purpose of .restoring the.
Sorfthern States to their old places In the'
Union, and then, when they had triumphed, ;
refusing lo let them take those places, denying ?
them the rights ol' sell'-goverrimeut and repre?
se nial lou In Congress, putting them und ey .1
bayonet rule, and afterward reconstruct lug I
them by upi outing all ihe foundations of their ?
society,-ditqiutlfljing all men of intelligence
and property from holding office or voting,
and placing their governments in the hands of 1
the Ignorant and vicious. He spoke ot the* ;
Kepubi ?cans as Jacobins without conscience or ,
consistency, whose purpose was to establish a
centralized, despotic "government, and to de- 1
si roy the liberties Of the people. All of the re? i
construction legislation of Congress lie belie v- .
ed to be unconstitutional, frnrimrient and void.
The XII Uh amendment he admitted to be val- 1
ld; because it had been milled by the righlf.nl j
goveruineuls-of the Southern Slates- the gov. ',
ernmentR ile jure, and not the governments de
facto afterward established by bayonets. The
XlVih and XVth amendments he claimed weri?
lto patt of Hie constitution, because their pre?
tended ratification had been effected by force
and fraud. They were not resuhs of the
war, as the Radical leaders falsely .claimed,
but were conceived alter the war waa over, as i
apart ol' the scheme of centralization which
those leaders' bad concocted to keep t hw- .
selvesMn power. He did not hold ihe XVth
amendment tb be invalid became he opposed 1
negro suffrage, butbecause of the usurpations
-and outrages upon the coustitntloh by which
lt . was wrongfully adopted. He did not be- '
Here Uio ballot would ever be taken from the J
negro U the XVth amendment was declared
void, and the control of the1 suffrage placed .
where 11 rightfully belonged,, under Ihe-exclu?
dive Juriscflcilou ol the Suites.. In such a case,
il ll should be proposed to deprive the negroes
of Hie fi?a?hise, the win t? man would divide
into two . parties upon the- question, and the>
one .hat opposed ihe "measure, with the aid of
the votes ol the negroes, would carry the day.
But Ihe fact t hat universal suffrage was BO
firmly established did not. he said, lessen the
duty of all lovers ot constitutional liberty to
oppose the XVth amendment This-usurpa
lion should never be ??ermined to pass without
proper rebuke and condemnation, even by
those who favor Hie object aimed at by it. The
de jure governments ot the Southern States, he
said, areatill in a condition cl repression, and.
he declared that tho history of no couniry
shows grosser or/more palpable usurpations of
power, or more glaring acts of wrong, vio?
lence, fraud and perfidy on the part of those in
authority than we*?e committed by the-Repub?
lican party tn the passage ol the so-called
amendments and the reconstruction laws.
Mr. stephens talked for more than an hour
in this manner, rehearsing all the old argu?
ments with which Democratic orators and
newspapers have made people too familiar
for the past tWc years. In answer to an In?
quiry as to'what he thought of the New De?
parture of the'Northern Democracy, he read
me a copy ol a long letter recently sent to a
friend-ia Pennsylvania, who had asked his
opinion of the platform lately adopted by the
convention in lhat State. The letter express?
ed very positive opinions, and these' he en
Iargen upon in conversation, but he especial?
ly desired me to make no mention of his
views upon this subject, as he wished that
they should not-be made public, and had cau?
tioned his Pennsylvania friend not to let his
letter get Into print. He expressed the oellef
that the movement toward centralizing power.
In the General government, whloh he said
wa3 going; on' with cbnstartlly accelera?
ted rapidity, would end In destroying
all the power and independence of the
states, and next tbe liberties of the peo?
ple. This, he said, was the deliberate purpose
?of the Republican .leaders, and he jouk.-d.for
its speedy accomplishment One pretext
aller another would be found to invade the
liberties of the people, and deprive ihem of
the light ot selt-governmcnt.- "1 may not live
to seo it,'' he saki, "but you are young, and
will yet witness the downrau ot Republican
government In this country, and the establish?
ment of a centralized despotism." Unlike Mr.
Toombs, Mr. Stephens .does not believe that
another war is possible between the North
and South, and he thinks a remedy-for the
evils of which he complains can be reached
only through peaceful means. He said he be?
lieved the Democratic party could yet save
the country lt it would-make an earnest and
solemn appeal-to the people at the next Presi?
dential election, warning them ol the plot to
destroy their liberties. Jf this were done, he
was confident that there was yet honesty and
Beuse enough among the people to cause them
to rise and "hurl the Jacobins from power,'
as he expressed lt.. ? '
In the course" of the conversation a negro
man came in, presented Mr. Stephens with a
basket of apples, and asked his advice* about
Beliing his peas at the present market price,
after he had gone, Mr. Stephens said that all
his former slaves still lived upon his place,
and worked the land on shares. He lound it
more profitable than slave labor. The negroes"
divided tie crops themse?veB and brought him
his share. He depended entirely upon their
honesty, and did not believe they deceived
him. The negroes were, not as well off lor
comforts as la the days ofjslavery he said;
they were bot as well clothed, fed or housed,
bu', he presumed they preferred freedom to
slavery with more coinfortti In'one of the
brlgl intervals in his political talk, Mr.
Stephens spoke of the civilization of Georgia
before the war as the highest ia the world.
Pauperism, he said, was almost .unknown, and
lu all his practice at' the. bar he had only
known one case of deliberate murder; but he
admitted that cases of k'tlllngMn quarrels were
Nearly all of our two hours' talk was on the
political topics indicated above-I should say,
rather, his talk; lor most of the time Mr.
Stephens seemed nearly oblivious ol the pres?
ence ol his auditors. With bis eyes fixed upon
oue point on the wall, he would talk as steadi?
ly and consecutively as il repeating h well
learned oration, and- he seemed Impatient ol'
questions or any Interruptions,, It was as if
he were rehearsing Item memory the chapters
of his book, and felt bound to get through with
them all. Sitting in his disordered room *snr
rounded by a. contusion of old books, manu?
scripts, bottles, vials, and' ancient furniture,
and discussing questions many of which were
lung since settled and are nearly forgotten, he
seemed to be a.sort ol necromancer trying to
revive the spirit of the dead past. He has
been an invulld ibr the psst two years, and
ts obliged to use crutches in walking. He
never expects that his health will per?
mit him to agulu luke any.pan la public nie.
In spite of his infirmities, however, ho makes
blB iuduer.ee widely felt by means of conver?
sations with men who come from all parts of
the South to-see him. Scarcely a day passes
i hut, he does not receive visitors from a dis?
tance. Ia this way he keeps up hla acquaint?
ance with public men ihroughuut the South,
and ls still potent in controlling the action of
the Democratic party la this Slate, and, to
some extent, in all the Southern Mates. Prob?

accept -tne?rtluulion. The -people of the vil?
lage have a great reverence for him, and seem
to rely upon him for advice and assistance.

The department: of agriculture bas received
returns from nearly three hundred couutles,
representing the most productive districts of
e?ch o? the cotloh States, and showlug the
comparative average and '.he condition of the
crop on the drat of June. A diminution la
the area planted lc cotton appears la every
Stale except Florida. The most careful analy?
sis of Ihe returns, with due regard in making
averages Lei the extent of colton production lu
the respective counties, gives the following
percentage of reduction In comparison with
last year: Virginia 30 per cent., North Caro?
lina 14, South Carolina 13, Georgia 12, Alaba?
ma 13, Mississippi 15, Louisiana 8, Texas 14,
Arkansas 16, Tennessee 12. These Slate
averages are reduced to a general average.
Tue assumed acreage of the respective States
being aa element in the calculation, will place
the reduction of the cotton crop ol 1871 as
compared with that of 1870, between 14 and 15
percent., equivalent to nearly a million and a
third of acres. This would -leave between
s?ven and a hall and eight millions of acres as
the present area In cotton. The average
yield bas nor in former years exceeded 150
pounds per acre; that for 1870 was more than
200 pounds. The condition of the growing
plant is below an average lo nearly every
Slate. The spring has been unusually wet,
md cold, retarding the growth, causing many
of the plants to turn yellow and die, and ob?
structing the cultivation to a large extent.
Replanting has refilled the vacant spaces
3f Imperfect stands. The weather has
recently been more favorable, and it is
xrt Impossible that an average condition
may be obtained by the commencement of
.he picking season. The condition of cotton
ia July of 18C9, a year favored with an abun?
dant yield, was only a Utile better than the
showing for this time of the present year.
Whiie the prospect ls slightly unpromising,
there is nothing In it pl a decisive.character.
The percentage Oelow an average, condition ls
respectively as follows : North Carolina 10 per
cent., South Carollua 8, Georgia 18, Alabama
17, Mississippi IC. Louisiana 10, Texas 7, Ar?
kansas 17, Tennessee 10. In Florida the con
ilillon ?8 three per cent, above an average.
An official estimate of the ullimale result so
early in the season would be an absurdity.
The influence of future rains, floods, frosts und
insect enemies cannot be calculated in ad?
vance'; but in view of the extremely favorable
circumstances affecting . the crop last year,
there cannot be expected In the present yearv
upon a reduced area, a cr,op exceeding three,
and one hall millions of bales. An early frost
or the prevalence of insects,.or a very unpro?
pitious season, might reduce the yield lo three
millions, and a still further reduction ia possi?
ble in the union or severity ol several of these
causes of failure.

TBE POPE'* ENCLfCLlCAZ.
So Compromise with the "Sub-Alpine"
An encyclical letter from the Pope appearB
In two New York papera, addressed to "all
patriarche, primates, archbiahops," ?tc.
After reciting hla present situation, the Pope
declares that "not only what are called safe?
guards, and which are devised by the sub-Al
blne Government, but that all titles, honors,
immunities and privileges, whatever shape
they take under the general name of safe?
guards or guarantees, ban be of no avail what?
ever towards securing, prompt and free use of
.power divlnely'traflsmitied to us, nor towards
guarding the" liberty necessary for the Church.
Such being the condition of affaira, as we
have repeatedly declared and profes8ed that,
without the crime of breaking our Bolemn
oath, we can consent to no conciliation which
would in any manner destroy or diminish the
rights of God and of ihe Apostolic See, BO
now, as of our bounden duty, we declare we
will never agree to nor accept, nor can we
so agree -to or accept, those .cunningly
wrought-out safeguards or guarantees pro?
posed by the 8ub-Alplae Government,
whatever their devices, or any olher,
of whatsoever kind or however, rati?
fied, which, .under, the form of Becking our
sacred power add liberty, shall have been of?
fered to us In lieu of, and exchange for, that
civil principality with- which Divine Provi?
dence willed that the Holy Apostolic See
should be furnished and strengthened, and
whioh 1? ratified to na by legitimate ?nd irre
fraiflbfe titles, as .well as by possession, fur
more than eleven centuries. God grant that
trie rulers of this earth, whom lt much imports
that such a pernicious example of usurpation
as we endure may not take root and flourish
to the destruction of all power and'order, may
Join with one consent of minda and willa, and
that hushing quarrela, the di?turbancea of re?
bellions being appeased, and the deadly coun?
sels of ali the sects abandoned, they may unite
in one movement for restoring to this Holy
See its rights, and with these his lull liberty to
the visible head of ihe Church and the desired'
calm to civil society.

shot somebody else's dog; whereupon the
latter (not the dog, but liu owner.), brought
an action to recover damages to the amount
ot $100. There* was s mistrial before, and on
.Monday last the case was heard a second time
before Trial Justice Havne, consuming the
best part ol' a day. The Jury this time agreed,
and brought in a verdict for the plaintiff, as?
sessing the damages at $46. The report.?t

. At the last session of the l?gislature, by a
?lece' of Radical chicanery, the limits ofthe
own of Timmonsville were extended, .so as
to bring in more negroes, and secure control
to the Republicans. Accordingly there was
an election, under thc new charter", on the 7th
instant, resuUtng in the election ofthe entire
Democratic ticker,, by a large majority. So lt
would appear that the colored people jn those,
parts are beginning to find out a little more
about, the true character ot their would-be
Radical leaders, and let them severely alone.
