grapher, tbe gentleman, accompanied by two
police agenta, called upon him and extracted
from him an avowal that he had availed bim?
se ll of the negatives of some of bis former pa?
trons least remarkable for personal attrac?
tions, in order to form a collection of portraits
representing the Inmates of tbe Versailles pris?
ons and the Brest hulks, the sale ol' which baa
been extremely large.
-The New York papers som 1 nue to subsist
mainly on the recent elections. The Sun
Bays one of the most marked effects of the
overthrow of tb? Ring ls to be seen In the
financial buoyancy which lt bas Imparted to
every phase of business. The Tribune has an
editorial plea for universal amnesty, and de
mands the removal of the disabilities of all
now ineligible to office, or none.,. Since her
rebuff at the polls, Mrs. Woodhull has written
several additional letters to tbe papers con?
cerning her right to vote. Charles O'Conor
says that Fields will never take a seat In the
Legislature. Tilden, in an address Thursday
evening, urged the young men to uphold the
rotare integrity of the State by attending to
political as well as mercantile dntlej.
-A Paris Journal states that a curious affair,
in which the diplomatist, M. Benedelti, ts con?
cerned, ls shortly to come before the law
coarta. That gentleman, when consul in
Egypt, married a young Greek lady, who
paseed as the daughter of M. Anastasis, a
wealthy merchant settled at Alexandria. It
waa, however, generally known that Madame
Benedettl was a Greek slave ol" great beauty,
who had been taken very young into Egypt,
aftertbe war In the Morea. M. Anastasie, who
had no family, purchased her, adopted and
brought her np, and on his death he left her
the whole ot bia fortune, which amounted to
seven millions of francs. The relations of the
deceased protested against the will, but did
not venture to dispute lt under the empire,
the husband ot Madame Benedettl possessing
great Influence. At present, however, a
nephew of M. Anastasie has taken up the sub?
ject and placed it in the hands of two advo?
cates of Paris.
-There seems to be no doubt that there is a
large and well-organized tody ol genulae
Communists In London, who hold meetings I
Week'y or ofteuer, and pa? ihe lemainde.- of
! the time grouped together In vehement con?
versation, at various unpretending inns.
Every now and '.nea. also, some ooted leader,
who has been given up for dead, makes a sud?
den entrance Into the circle of Bed?, and is
welcomed with open arms. For instance, Le
Moussu bas recently been seen in a dark stan?
way leading to one of the little upper rr oms
which serve as council chambers for the ex?
patriated Communists. Le Moussu is the one
who was charged by the Commune to requisi?
tion the convents and churchee; the man who
has been held up by the Paris Journal te public
execration as the assassin of nuns and priests,
and who, lt is said, hints that bis was the hand
that Bent Darboy to his last account. At one
o? the recent meetings, a long discussion aroBe
between the committee and a delegation from
the "Fraternelle," a society composed of. 1848
refugees, who assist with funds and obtain em?
ployment lor refugees from the Commune.
The delegation wished relugees in distress to
be sent direct to the "Fraternelle," bul "L'In?
ternationale Francaise" objectBto any direct
assistance, and wishes to hold the power of
assisting refugees in its own hands. Then
M. Schmelch read an essay on "The universal
education," wblch gave rise to an acrimonious
debate, and the meeting at length adjourned
without having accomplished anything of a
practical nature. The London Communists
are very evidently men of ability, but give fre?
quent proois of their inability to discuss any
question without getting into a quarrel.
? The Crowning Infamy.
The most unblushing piece of effrontery
with which his Excellency Governor Scott
has honored the people of this State is the
declaration made by him, through the State
Auditor, that he made no general promise to
the late Taxpayers' Convention to extend
the time ror the collection of the taxes Of
1871. We did not expect bim to fulfil his
pledge. It waB believed that be would find
a way of stripping himself of his last and
only claim upon the consideration of the
j people. Bat, in the face of the unimpeach?
able record, we did not look for so brazen
a denial of an unquestionable and indisputa?
Th? iyflTnayprf|'i?priventinn. on the 11th of
May.jippolnted a Committee of Five to wait
on the Governor and "secure a postpone
"ment of taxes." The committee consisted
of Colonel Tbos. Y. Simons, Colonel W. M.
Shannon, ex-Governor Bonham, Mr. James
H. Giles aDd the HOD. J. P. Richardson.
On the following day, Colonel Simons, from
the Special Committee, made the following
"The Special Committee directed by the Con?
vention to confer with the Governor of tbe
State, In relation to the postponement of the
collection ol tbe taxes In November ensuing,
beg leave to report :
"That Impressed with the conviction, under
the peculiar circumstances of the case, and In
view ot the fact that the people of the State
are thus called upon to pay the taxes for two
separate yean in one, of the Justice of the
measure of relief proposed, they have had an
interview with the Governor, who has autho?
rized them to state to the Convention, that
rehile the various o?ces will oe open in Novem?
ber for the reception o' the taxes at that time,
from such of the citizens as may be then pre?
pared to pay them, yet that THE TEBIOD FOK
THEIR PAYMENT WILL BE EXTENDED TO THE
FIRST OF MARCH, 1872, within which time If
payment ls made no penalty will attach.
"T. Y. SIMONS, Chairman."
"Only a Drunken Spree."
The Town of Union, long before the issuing
of the proclamation ordering the I Klux in
Union County to surrender or disperse, was
the scene or an outrage of a peculiarly atro?
cious character. It is a tale which should be
told throughout the country as an example
Of the insult and injury to which American
citizens are liable when the Ku-Kl ox law
lets loose upon a quiet community Its hordes
of lawless deputies and roysteriog troopers.
On the night of October 23d a number or
the most respectable business men in Union
ville were arrested aa Ku-Klux by the
United Slates soldiers. Their captors locked
them np, and proceeded to search their
houses. The most private apartments were
ransacked, ladies were insulted by indecent
words and gestares, articles or apparel and
jewelry were stolen and have not been re-,
covered. When the arrests were made no?
tice was given that the prisoners would
suffer death in the morning; but when
morning came the prisoners were dismissed
"as there were no charges against them."
United States deputy marshals accompa?
nied the soldiers who made tbe arrests, and
it was threatened that if resistance were at?
tempted tbe town would be laid in ashes.
After the release of the prisoners the author?
ities stated that it was "only a drunken
"spree." And it is even reported that no?
tice was sent to tbe publisher or the Union
ville Times, to the effect that, if he printed
any account of the orgy, the town would be
fired arid the publisher swung to a post.
These are the main facts as related in the
last issue of the Chester Reporter, a highly
respectable and trustworthy paper; but we
have, besides this, an admission or the truth
ol the charge from a source which even At?
torney-General Akerman will not venture to
The town council of Union held a meeting
on October 25lh "to investigate the origin of
"the disorders in that town on the night of
"the 23d October." All the information the
council could obtain was sent to United
States District Attorney CorbiD, who ac?
knowledges its receipt in a letter dated
Yorkville, November 3, printed in the last
issue of the ?Dionville Times. Major Cor?
"I thank you for the information thus
promptly furnished. The numerous affidavits
taken before your council on that occasion, all
go to show a most disgraceful, unwarrantable,
unlawful proceeding, on the part of the United
States deputy marshals, and I have no lan?
guage too severe to express my condemnation
of the conduct of these officials.
"The purpose of the Uolted States Govern?
ment is to secure to every citizen his life, lib?
erty and property, and to protect him in their
enjoyment, and these lawless acts on the part
ol the deputy marsbals are repudiated and
condemned In the strongest terms ; and I will
make lt my business to inquire whether they
can be punished in the courts of the United
states, or whether they must be left to the
civil authorities of your county lor punish?
We need no betier evidence than this that
the conduct or the official rioters was brutal
and infamous. What must their proceed
inga have been to wrest from Major Corbin
bitter words of jost condemnation? A peace?
ful country town-where the writ of habeas
corpus is not suspended-is treated by sold?
iers and Federals officials as though it were
a fallen city, ripe for Back and rapine.
One other point in Major Corbin's letter
requires notice. That gentleman expresses
his regret tbat the town council of Union
did not give the authorities any information
relative to the KuKlux raids in the county,
so that the persons who took part in them
might be arrested, prosecuted and punished.
Had this been done, says Major Corbin, the
town "might have been spared the visitation
"'rom these drunken deputy marshals-un
"worthy representatives of the Government
"of the United States." The answer of tbe
town council is right to the point They
show that the coroner took, and tiled, all
the evidence which could be obtained, and
they establish by affidavit the fact that, the
morning after the first raid, a public meeting
was held in Union and a committee appoint?
ed to wait on Governor Scott and confer
with him as to the best means of preserving
the peace. The committee gave Governor
Scott a detailed statement or the whole
affair, and of "the inability of the citizens of
"Ute town to prevent a recurrence bf unlaw?
ful acts." They aBked Governor Scott to
send to the town, immediately, a company
of United States soldiers, pledging him the
co-operation of the citizens in maintaining
law and order. Governor Scott promised
to send the troops, but they were not sent
until after tlie second and last raid. The
raids were made at the dead of night The
raiders were so carefully diguised that it was
impossible to identify them. The citizens
could lind no clue. They exposed the whole
truth to Governor Scott, and if that official
had seat, the troops immediately, as he
promised to do, the second raid could not
have taken place. The affidavits of the in?
tendant and committee, setting forth these
facts, are printed in full in the Union Tunes.
-We hope that the United States District
Attorney will show as much energy in bring?
ing the official rioters to trial as in pro?
nouncing them unworthy representatives of
the government They deserve a punish?
ment both swift and severe.
Senators Nash and Wimbnsb, and the
other colored members of the General As?
sembly who advocate total repudiation of the
State debt, have divulged their plans rather
earlier than was expected, but it has been
known for some weeks that the leaders
among the colored Radicals were ready to
seize the first opportunity of wiping out the
old and new obligations which now consume,
in interest, about six hundred thousand dol?
lars a year of the taxes which the Radical
repudiators do not pay. These people own
no State bends, and have nothing to lose by
refusing to recognize them. But it must
not be imagined that they have any regard
for the welfare of the taxpaying public The
amount of taxation ls expected to remain
the same. But Nash and Wlmbnsh and
their followers propose to divide amongst
themselves, under the forms of law, the hun?
dreds of thonsands of dollars, in CO?D, which
now go into the pockets of the holders of
We now know the plans of the Radical
repudiators. They may build better than
they know. Bat we are confident tbat we
express the opinions of the property-holders
and taxpayers of the State when we say tbat
they are just as firmly resolved to recognize
and pay, whenever they have the power, all
legal claims apon the State, as they are de?
termined to refuse and reject all claims,
whatever their natnre, which have been
fraudulently contracted. And, right here,
we have a word to say in regard to what is
called Repudiation. In its conventional
sense, in the sense in which it is under?
stood throughout the civilized world, Re?
pudiation is tfie refusal to recognize and
pay a just debt of the individual or
oj the State. Now, in this sense, the
taxpayers of South Carolina are not, and
never will be, the supporters of Repudi?
ation. They are ready to acknowledge and
pay, when they can, every just and legal
claim, but they positively refuse to recognize
any claim of a fraudulent character. In
holding this position the people of South
Carolina are no more Repudiators than are
the merchants who refuse to pay a forged
draft There is something in a Dame, after
all, and, from our stand-point, this taxpay?
ing people, while opposing illegality and
fraud m the issue and use of State securities,
are not, in the common acceptance of the
phrase, the advocates of Repudiation. The
colored Radicals, whom Nash and Wimbush
represent, are the only true Repudiators in
all South Carolina.
THE Baltimore American is advised that
Reverdy Johnson is to go to Columbia, S. C.,
to defend the Ku Klux prisoners to be tried
there at the November term of the United
States Circuit Court We need not say that
Mr. Johnson is a gentleman nf eminent
ability, and one whose words have weight
before any tribunal We Leartily hope,
therefore, that the statement made by the
American is correct
THE Barnwell Journal continaes to spur
on its readers to act vigorously in the mat?
ter of the railroad proposed to be run from
Barnwell to Blackville. It advises that, if
no outside help can be had, tbe people set
to work and build a wooden tramway which
would not cost more than $10,000.
