CHARLESTON, FRIDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER I, 1871.
* HUMORS OF THE RAIL.
THICKS (POX TRAVELLERS-TRIALS
OF A DISGUSTED PASSEXGER.
By Donn Platt.
I never left a depot yet that somebody was
cot put under my care." I don't know why this
is; I suppose it" ?3 something in my counte?
nance; if I knew what, I would have lt ex?
tracted. I don't like having unprotected fe?
males and school ?ir's and boys turned over to
me. It's a little hard on a man. And what ls
the good o: it? Nobody needs protection; if
any one dees, it ls a benevolent, good-looking,
innocent sort of mac-such as the writer of |
I v.as leaving on the morning train once
from Philadelphia, when a respectable looking
old scoundrel, in gold-rlrumed glasses, asked
me to take charge ot his daughter. She could
have taken charge of me. She was thirty If a
dav, with a face that had been on the offensive
for ten years. I'd like to see any man attack
that woman; I'd go odds ten to one on the
T'ie olt! fellow seemed to be in a great hur?
ry, and thrusting tte lady under my arm left
the cars and drove off. In a thin, angular
?oice, ita; was meant to be very sweet and
was not, she asked me to take her'pocket-book
and get the necessary ticket. 1 lett the car for
that purpose, but when I approached the
opening where the ticket agent, kept In soli?
tary confinement, snaps at the world outside,
I found mat I had left my pocket-book under
my pillow at the hotei, antrwhat was worse,
my watch with lt. I had about twenty min?
utes, and ?umping into a hack I promised the
driver tea collars ll he would get to the hotel
and back in time for the train. He started off I
at a ltirioti? rate, ran over an apple stand, crip?
pled a venerable gentleman on the corner op?
posite, and in less than the time stated. I and
fcthe driver lound ourselves marched off to the
^station iu the hand ot the police. We were taken
before a corpulent justice of the peace, who had
as much adipose In his head as most men carry
about th-ir muscles, and lt took the old fellow
just two hours to try. reprimand and fine us
for our denken and disorderly conduct. Of
course ite train went off with my charmer.
It went off without her pocket-book. I never I
saw her a^ain, although I made diligent search
and advertised In the dally papers. Eut one
unfortunate day, some months aller, I encoun?
tered a male member of her family, who made
some serious charges against me connected
. with the desertion of a lad v and stealing her
pocket-book. I tried to explain, but, falling
to get my words In satl9lactorIly, was forced to
make ar. assault on this member of her family,
that ended in some black eyes und bloody
Now what was the good cf putting that aired
female under my care" i only led to her
giving me that pocket-bo K and the catastro?
phe that followed. She could Just as well have
gone eff on the Pennsylvania Central without
as well as with me. The thing is an outrase.
If people want to put their females under the
care of anybody, let them try the conductors
they are hired tor such purposes-and not im?
pose upon innocent passengers.
?.I was reminded of this by an ad-'enture that
happened lo me the other night In New York.
I was about leaving on the nine ('clock train
for Washington, when a man v ho was lo
search of me approached. I know he was In
search cf me. He was In search of some
respectable, benevolent individual to put a
woman under his care. And he did. She
happened to be rather good-look og, and I
.didn't object in a violent way, but I vuneltner
Tery graceful or gracious over the c unpliment.
When I came to secure sections in : he sleeping
car, I found that a delegation of i lous people
were going to Washington on sci ie charitable
-business, and had taken nearly al the berths.
I procured two-at least I though : I had-and
marched my female with ber twe carpet-sacks,
strap-satchel, a mocking bird, a td a silk um?
brella, with a waterproof, and tw D shawls done
fc up in straps, in 161. When we a rived inside,
f I learned ?or the first lime that m y unprotected
female could not abide 3leeplng-cirs. She said
she felt like suffocating, and I wi ?ned secretly
she wouid suffocate; but, when we camelo
occupy our berths, I made ?wo disagreeable
The first was that the two tickets called tor
the same berth; the other, that this was the
upper one. My female friend said positive!y
that she could not get Into that berth. I in?
formed ber that it was her oniy chance to
sleep, and she told me lhat she would rather
alt up. I then gave her the further informa?
tion that was very well, but in a sleeping car
there was no place to sit except on a wash
-basin, and that I thought would be rather in?
convenient. At last, wilh the aid of a step?
ladder and the steward, and two pious old
Pomps, my unprotected female was boosted
. -into her roost, and the curtaindrawn over
her for the night.
Then came the question as to what had be?
come of the undersigned. I consulted the
conductor and the steward, and bad the satis
*Ellon ot hearing the fact stated lhat If I had
ld them earlier the blunder might have been
remedied. But, as lt was, the pious delegation
had retired for the night, and all the berths
were occupied. The conductor, however, told
me that he would try and make some arrange?
ment, and then went off about his business.
A drunken man bad been captured on the
platform as we started, where ne was found
Addressing the stars in a vociferous way, the
sleeping car ticket fished out of his pocket,
and the inebriate fellow chucked Into an upper
berth. I was leaning against ibe washstand
of the car in a very melancholy way some
time after, when this intoxicated fellow stuck
Als head out and, addressing me, said:
' I would like io have a drink."
"Water ?" said I.
"No, curse it, darn water ! I want some
whiskey; I am dry as a chip."
"Well," I responded. "I am sorry to say
that I have none about me."
"Ain't you the conductor ?"
"No," I responded, "I don't believe I am."
"Nor do L If you were the conductor you
would have something to drink. Where is the
I told him he was in the ether car.
"Well." he said, "I have a great mind to get
up and hustle around till I get a drink."
"My Christian friend," I said, "there Is
nothing in the constitution nor the sixteen
amendments that prohibits you from getting
up and hunting a drink, if you want lt."
. Whereupon the inebriated individual rolled
rout of the berth. He rolled Into several others
and was promptly ejected, and at last, getting
his legs, disappeared at the further endof the
I took in the situation at a glance. Here
was a berth vacant. Above it was a white
hat. I Immediately removed that white hat.
I carried lt further along and put it over a
Christian association, who was lost in the
Sleep ot Innocence and peace, and then return?
ing 1 ?rsconced myself In the berth vacated
by the man Who had a constitutional right to
a drink. I was dropping into a slumber, for I
always sieep on a car devoted to that business
and invented by Mr. Pullman; the motion bas
the same effect upon ray brain that rocking
has upon a child, and I not only sleep easily,
but profoundly. Ina few moments I should
have been beyond all disturbances; but it hap?
pened I was awakened out ot my first wink by
a row in an adjoining section, There seemed
to be a pitched battle going on between
one of the delegates and a man who claim?
ed the berth to be the one he just vaca?
ted I heard him sav, "Now get out of that;"
and he called the good man the offspring
of a female dog, adding thereto some very
profane language. The conductor came to
the rescue of the weary delegate, and when
the maa called attention to the fact of the
wh'te hat, he puzzled him sorely by showing
bim two or three white hats further along in
the same car. At this the Inebriate passenger
desisted, but as the conductor's back was turn?
ed renewed the fight with the next white hat,
Insisting just as positively that that was his
berth, and with the same profane and violent
language and scuffle. He was repulsed only
to begfn again, and he kept fighting these
good Christian gentlemen who were so unfor?
tunate a3 to have white hat?, until I fell asleep
and dreamed till morning of my earlier youth
-of the church, not round the corner, but in
the glen, where the forest trees brushed
against the windows, and the sunlight came
down as if in response to the prayers ot the
beautiful maidens, and snowy-headed lathers
of the land. I only awoke when entering the
sinful city of Washington. ^

THE IX JURY TO THE COTTOX CROP.
What They Think In Georgia.
The Columbus Enquirer, p. Ished lo the
centre of the finest cotton region in the world,
still adheres to Its opinion that the growing1!
crop will tall much below three millions of j
bales. Ia its Issue of Thursday last we find
the following :
We heard, yesterday, of a Muscogee planter
who made one hundred and twenty bales ot
cotton last year, who has this year planted the
same land In cotton that he did last year, <ind
who ls offering to sell his growing crop us ,
thirty bales as the ruling price. In view of I
such facts, and of the wonderfully short re?
ceipts as compared with the corresponding
dates of last year, it is not easy to mea: ure
the faith of some men who still talk of a crop
exceeding three millions of bales.
The Augusta Constitutionalist of yesterday
We have now upon us a spell of dismal, raw,
cold weather, and as uncomlortable In every
respect as we have ever known In September.
We have had rains in superabundance, and the
earth ls saturated with water. It can absorb no
more, and Blreams and ponds ara everywhere
full. This continuous wet, cloudy and chilly
weather ls very much against the cotton
plant, as every one knows who ls at all ac?
quainted with its cultiv?t ion. The ele
meo ta seem to have combined to do all the
damage possible to the cotton crop. The
season has been throughout, from the time
the seed was put in the ground, more uniform?
ly unfavorable than auy the writer can re?
member ever to have seer. In Georgia duringa
long experience. The picking season is. thus
far, unprecedentedly bad. These remarks will
apply to all the cotton States, as we judge by
our exchanges. They all tell the same uniform
story ot bad weather, s'ow opening and slow
picking of colton and damage to the crops.
The lowest estimates yet published of the crop
do not seem to us extravagant. A very short
crop may already be considered a fixed fact,
and business calculations should be made on
THE WEATHER THIS DAY.
WASHINGTON, september 22.
The low pressure in the northwest will prob?
ably extend eastward rapidly, with brisk
southwest winds over the lakes, but the
smoky haze attending it will prevent exten?
sive rains in that region. Falling barometer
with increasing cloudiness and easterly winds
on Saturday along the Atlantic coast, and
pleasant weather in the Gulf States.

TH? NEW YORK MUDDLE.
TUE LATEST FACTS, RUMORS AND
Tamilian y-s Troubles-Comptroller Con?
nolly aa State's Evidence-Public Feel?
ing;-The Effect of the Exposare upon
the Democratic Canse.
The New York press continue to be Ailed
with fads, rumors and discussions concerning
the troubles which bave come upon the ring
government. It is evident that public feeling
ls running high. On this point the correspon?
dent ot the Philadelphia Ledger says, referring
to the action of the citizens' committee of
seventy in adopting resolutions to sustain
Comptroller Connolly :
Notwithstanding the respectability and in?
fluence of the seventy, there ls a feeling be?
gining to ?rain ground against their disposi?
tion to push their movement too far, thus in?
viting reaction. Their course, in approving of
the retention of Connolly in office, is dissented
from, while their threats of meeting the Mayor
by force in a certain contingency is considered
altogether too revolutionary to be commended
by men of conservative convictions. Outside
of the politician's circle the belief is that the
people can fluht this battle out to trie end
within the iorms ol law, and without doing
anything to bring on anarchy or disorder. Un?
questionably there ls a very Inflammable feel?
ing prevailing everywhere, and all who are In
favor ot law and order see and feel how little it
would take to produce an explosion. Never
was good temper so much needed, therefore,
not only on the part of the committee of sev?
enty, but ol ali others directly or Indirectly
LIAS CONNOLLY TURNED STATE'S EVIDENCE ?
The New York Iierald gives an interview be?
tween one ot Its reporters and Mr. John Foley,
of the citizens' committee of seventy, and
plaid iii' in the suit brought on behalf of tax?
payers, in which an injunction waa granted by
Judge Barnard forbidding ,lhe issue of more
:lty bonds. In this Interview Mr. Foley ls
made to say :
"Mr. Connolly has offered the committee of
ieveuty to pay back to the city, to the last
:ent. all the money he owes-"
"He will make restitution ?"
"Yes; he will pay every cent Oh, he will
make lull restitution. But he will do more.
He has offered to submit statements which
will criminate and send to prison Sweeny,
Tweed and Hail."
"Has he done It or merely promised lo do
"I guess he has done lt. The committee
have the whole evidence in their hands/'
"Then lt ls Intended to eave Connolly from
the consequence ot his crimea, BO that his
rivals lu the ring may be punished os they de?
serve. Is that lt, Mr! Foley?"
"Not by any means ! There will be no com
Dromlse with Connolly whatever, or with any
of the infamous ring. My Impression Is that
the whole lour will have to go to State prison.''
"Then Connolly has not turned 8tate's evi?
dence exactly, but ls so overwhelmed with
shame that lie Is anxious to make restitu?
tion, and abide the verdict ot the courts in his
.'That's about It," answered Mr. Foley, and
after nodding meaningly continued : ""Con?
nolly won't go to prison, ii" he dot?? go. without
Laking with him tue rest of the gang."
SECURING TUE PLUNDER.
The New York Tribune says editorially :
It is rumored that Woodward, Ingersoll,
Garvey and others have made assignments of
their property, and are preparing for a journey
to Europe. Keyser, either because he feels
less guilty or more courageous than the others,
proposes to stay, and may, perhaps, attempt to
Imitate Connolly by turning State's evidence
against the rest. The Tribune hopes that the
numerous committees who are working up the
matter will not permit the escape unquestion?
ed ot such excellent material for convicts and
TUE RING'S REAL ESTATE.
A list has been compiled from the New
York registry records giving date of convey?
ance, description of property and value ex?
pressed of real estate conveved io Richard B.
Connolly, Wm. M. Tweed and Peter B.
Sweeny between 1868 and 1871. For Mr. Con?
nolly the amount foots us $354,000, for Mr.
Tweed $2,364,300. and for Mr. Sweeny $998.
D00. The New York Sun adds to this exhibit
the statement that "members of the ring are
offering their real estate at a discount of
twenty-rive percent, from the prices which
ruled a fortnight ago. Thia bad a de?
pressing effect upon the real estate market
generully, and has thrown things somewhat
out of gear."
A SMALL STEAL.
After such stupendous frauds as have been
unearthed, the following item from the Tri?
bune's editorial column seems almost trivial :
"A responsible business man of this city In?
forms us that the four engines in the new
courthouse were built lor $2500 each by a New

they agreed to make out u bill lor $32.000

A QUESTION OF i'AP.TV POLITICS.
A correspondent writing irom New York un?
der date of the 19;h says :
It is a good sign, at this crisis in the affairs
of the municipal government, to see such
men as ex-Preskleut Fillmore coming from
their retirement once more to the front. Mr.
Fillmore came down trout his residence in
Erie County last evening, and this morning, I
am Informed, he was closeted with a number
of prominent Democratic politicians, not in
nor of the ring. The ex-president is under?
stood to have'urged that, In die coming State
convention, the "rule of four" (Hall. Connolly,
Tweed and Sweeny,) must be thoroughly repu?
diated; any other course, he thinks, in the pre?
sent state of public opinion, would be fatal lo
the supremacy ot the Democratic party in this
State. He does not assume that the "ring"
are guilty beiore they are tried, but he insists
that the" party must have for leaders men
against whom there is no suspicion even.
THE RINO AND TUE DEMOCRACY.
Samuel J. Tilden, chairman ot the Demo?
cratic State Committee, being asked if what ls
entitled the "Ring" is absolutely devoid ot
Strength In the country, Mr. Tilden said: ..! do
not think it has any solid strength. I told Mr.
Connolly, when he first sought an inter?
view with me. on last Friday, to ask my
advice, that he might as well make up lils
mind that, as a political power. Hall and
others connected with the transaction which
had excited the public indignation, had
ceased to exist. My opinion ls that the
fall must carry down the organization
which these men control ; in oilier word?,
the Democratic party of the city and county
must be reorganized* by an edict ol the Demo?
cratic pany of the State. The Democratic
party of the nation consists of lour millions of
treemeu; of the State lt. consists of lour hun?
dred and fifty thousand citizens, and of the
citv more than ten thousand. These vast
masses of Democrats can never consent that
the sole result ol' their existence should be
that half a dozen men mi^ht enrich them?
selves by public plunder, or that, when just
arraying"themselves for a national and State
battle, they should be Impeded and dishonored
by offences of a small kuot ot local leaders.1'
WHO STOLE THE VOUCHERS.
Tiie Evening News, in an extra, makes the |
following statement, which has uot yet been
authenticated : -The man who stole the
vouchers from the comptroller's office Is
known, and a warrant has been issued for his
arrest. He will probably be In custodv to?
night. The above statement can be implicitly
reued upon. We have all the facts in our oos
sessioa, but refrain lrom makini: them public

THE WEATHER AND TUE CROPS.
Raina In Abbeville.
The Press of Thursday, the 21st, says: "We
had, on Tuesday last, one ot the heaviest rains
ol the season. The streims about the village
were rendered Impassable, and the delegates
to the Reformed Synod, returning to Due
West, were for some time water bound."
The Crops In i nion.
A correspondent, writing on the 2lst, says:
"The cotton crop will he about one-third of
what lt was last year. Corn about three
fourths of an average crop. Farmers may
remedy the short crop ot corn by sowing oats,
and nearly every one seems to be In the notion
of sowing largely of this crop. There is a
great scarcity ot good seed wheat."
Cropt and Kains in Greenville.
The Enterprise, of Thursday, the 21st. says:
"The cotton crop In this county will probably
not exceed one half last year's product, but
the planters have already commenced bring?
ing some to market. On Monday there were
six bales new crop, good quality, sold at 13J
cents. It will be thus seen that the Green?
ville market opens well, and planters in ail
adjacent sections may expect to make as good
sales in Greenville as" anywhere else. The in?
crease In cotton culture in Greenville is re?
markable: In 1840 the entire crop was only
300 bales tor Hie whole district; last year lt was
about rjfteen times as much. Greenville ls
proved tobe a cotton as well as a grain and
grass growing section.
"On Thursday evenlns, rain commenced
tailing, which continued, we believe, the great?
er part of the night, a portion of the time com?

AN AEROLITE /A DARLINGTON.
[From the Dirllngton Southerner.]
Tuesday night last, between 9 and 10 o'clock,
a pheuomena ot frightful and unusual appear?
ance was witnessed by some ot our villagers.
A young man who was sitting out on the door?
steps at the lime says lhat suddenly every?
thing around became lighted upas with a llisht
ol uncommon brilliancy, which lasted tor three
or four seconds, that so small an object as a
pin cr a needle could have been easily discern?
ed and picked up from off the earth. Two of
these strange displays of light occurred, the
last following in a few minute's after the flrst.
but not so brilliant. No moving body or visi?
ble cause was seen in the elements, but so sud?
den and uncommonly brilliant flashes of light
must have been produced by a meteor of great

We are pleased to learn that THE CHAR?.ES
Toy NEWS, the Edgefleld Advertiser, and other
journals, are uklugailec ded Bland against the
suggestion which has been made, to hold a po?
litical convention or conference the present
year. The next year is the time for our periodic
agitation, and we may well devote the present
to our material interests. It is premature now
to lorecaste the political luture or determine
the elements which shall control next year's
issues. They will all develop themselves in
goo 1 time, and point out the path of duty as
WP,! as of safetv. In the next year we will
have, doubtless, agitation enough without an?
ticipating it now. Let us have peace for one
year at least.

WHO IS RESPONSIBLE ?
Tpe following letter ia printed in the London
Times of tlie 8th inst.:
To the Editor of the limes:
SIR-In; your '.ender of tills morning upon
the Government of the City of New Yorl% you
say "the Tammany Ring "appoints every cus?
tomhouse officer." Permit me to correct this
grave error, which will, in the United States,
break the force of your able article, as lt will
unquestionably be copied by the leading pre33
The customhouse officers are appointed by
the President of the United States through the
Secretary of the Treasury. Nominally, the
collector of the port appointa the subordinates,
but in fact the apDOintments emanate from
Washington. The Democratic party of New
York, or of the United States, ls ready at anv
moment to compare its honesty in office with
that of the present Republican administration:
and if Messrs. Tweed, Oakey Hall and Connol?
ly are the thieves the New York Times is en?
deavoring to show them to be, they will
simply be turned out of their places of honor
and profit, while the Democratic party will
continue to be what it is-the party of econo?
mical administration ot the government, of
free trade, specie payments aaa conservative

-The favorable reports or the decrease of
th?; cholera In Germany, which we have re?
ceived from time to time, prove to have been
unfounded. There ls now no doubt that this
terrible scourge ls advancing with rapid
strides, and that, in the cities where it is most
firmly established, its virulent and fatal
character Is more to be dreaded than ever be?
fore. At Konigsburg, where the cholera has
made its most terrible vlsltationlihls year, the
disease ls proving much more fatal, the ratio
of deaths to the number of those attacked hav?
ing advanced from fifty to eighty percent.
Three hundred deaths mark the week Just
closed, and still there ls no abatement. We
may consider it Providential that this violence
of the plague has been postponed until the
season ls so tar advanced that the disease can
hardly obtain much of a foothold In this coun?
try. Prussia has been unable, with the ut?
most vigilance, to prevent Its introduction
across her borders.
