MATTBBa IN YORK.-Tho Yorkville
Enquirer gives on account of thc receut
occurrences in that County, which un
tinnily gave rise to apprehensions of
-trouble. It seems that a number of in?
cendiary fires have recently oocurrcd in
that County. Tho Enquirer furnishes
details of at least seven of theso cases of
incendiarism, all occurring in rapid suc?
cession, and attended with loss of horse?,
-cotton, gin houses, agrieultural imple
?ments, &c. With regard to tho parties
who have suffered by theBo acts, the En?
quirer states that they ure of tho high?
est respectability and not obnoxious to
eithor political party. The Enquirer
"They aro tho lust persons to suspect
of boiDg engaged in the 'Ku Klux' ope?
rations; and, hence, it eau hardly be
made to appear that these incendiary
fires have been made in retaliation of
wrongs, or supposed wrougs, inflicted
upon tho colored rnce. That the torches
<were applied by the blocks, there is little
room for doubt; but of course they uro
prompted to do so by base white men,
whose purposes are sufficiently transpa?
rent. It is desirable by tho Rudicul
-leaders at Washington that 'new out?
rages be perpetrated in the South, and
it is a part of tho programmo to exaspe?
rate the whites by inciting tho deluded
negroes to acts of lawlessness and vio?
Of course these outrages produced
strong feelings in the community of
York, and it seemed likely that a dis?
turbance would ensue. At this critical
period, as the Enquirer informs us, Gen.
Anderson, commanding tho State mili?
tia, accompanied by Messrs. W. E. Rose,
Senator, and J. H. White, member of
the Legislature, reached York ville. Gcu.
Anderson at once examined into the
?causes of the excitement, and conferred
freely with the best citizens of tho town.
The result of the matter was, thut Gen.
Anderson ordered the arms, ammuni?
tion and equipments of tho town com?
pany (colored) to bo turned over to thc
Sheriff of tho County, for deposit iu n
place, of security. As to the cause of
tho troublo iu York, tho Enquirer says:
*' The sense of uneasiness was shown to
h ive arisen principally from the ill advised
volley of organizing and arming military
companies in the County, composed entirely
of colored people; of ref using to place white
militia companies on the same footing; and
the reckless, dangerous and undisci?
plined uso mode of tho arms so distri?
buted to the colored cotnpuuics,
"It was also forcibly' insisted thut
much of the incendiarism hud its origin
uud execution in theso companies, und
that the officers of these cotnpuuics failed
to oxoroise tho requisito discipline over
"It was brought to the attention of
General Audersou that these officers of
companies bad a few days previously ac?
knowledged the propriety of delivering
up the arms and accoutrements fur?
nished, and had sighed a petition to this
"The following order was issued on
Tuesday afternoon, and in compliance
therewith, nearly ail tho guns have al?
ready been turned over, us directed, aud
at this timo tho utmost quietude pre?
.'HEADQUARTERS N. G., S. C.,
YORKVIMJI?, S. C., January 31, 1871.
By direction of C. L. Anderson, Ma?
jor-General commanding, it is hereby
-ordered that the guns, accoutrements
and ammunition of Captain Geo. Adams'
company, National Guard, Stato of South
Carolina, bo turned over forthwith to lt.
H. Glenn, Sheriff of York County, for
Storage nod custody.
C.ipt. Co. -, Utu Regiment N. G. State
of South Carolina."
Alludiug to tho exaggerated state?
ments, with respect to occurrences iu
York, the Enquirer says:
"The burning of burns andgiu houses
in this Couuty is but too true; though
thc statement that 'forty coloro 1 men
have boen whipped,' is a groundless
fabrication. With the exceptiou of n
personal difficulty in this town on Sun?
day night lust, between a negro and a
young gentleman in town, with which
the recent incendiarism hud no connec?
tion whatever, we hove not heard of the
least collision or altercation between thc
two races siuoe the first fire of ten days
ago occurred. Vague threats of burning
the town had been made by negroes, and
thc citizens properly enough adopted
precautionary measures to prevent the
desti ne! iou of property.
"Wo have heard of no 'Ku Klux'
notices having beeu posted about,
threatening the lives of ten prominent
colored men and two white mon in case
of incendiarism, though threats of killing
colored men without particularizing any
persons may have boon made by thought?
less iudividnuls whilo iu pussiou. It is
also a mistake, so far as wo uro advised,
that threats are made against armed
bands who may patrol tho roads."
lu conclusion, tho Enquirer says:
"The committee assured General
Anderson that this act on his part, to?
gether with their united and earnest in?
fluence, would, they believed, enable
them to prevent a collision that at one
time appeared so imminent. Otherwiso,
they feared that no counsels, however
honored, would bo cfleotivo lo control j
the excitement of certain portions of tho
people. To tho maintenance of peuce,
tho committee pledged their utmost in?
dividual efforts and those of tho white
people of thc town. Wc cordially hope
that io the future no cause may be
afforded, by whito or colored, for the
violation of thiB compact.
..In concluding thia article, yr? are
pleased to bear testimony to the firm?
ness, candor and high tone distinguish?
ing General Anderson's conduct in ino
delicate and diflioolt trust he was called
upon to exeoute. With a iow moro
officers in South Curolina possessing the
temper and spirit of thin geutlomun, we
should feel secure in the preservation of

The New York World, of Jauuary 80,
thus gives a statement of the posture of
affairs iu France:.
"Tho foi ls arouud Puris were occupied
by the Gorman troops yesterday uioru
iug, and the entire garrison of Paris, ex?
cept tho National Guard, uro to surren?
der their arms. This garrison is com?
posed of regulars and Mobiles, who uro
to be kopt in Paris as prisoners of war.
Tho heroic city remains invested, but
will bo allowed to reviotual during un
armistice of thieu weeks, which is to ex?
tend over the whole theatre of war.
Tho armies in the field will retuiu their
respectivo positions, ns follows: Gen.
Faidherbe, with tho army of the North,
headquarters at Lille aud Arras; Geu.
Chanzy, with tho army of tho Loire, at
and uear Laval; Gen. Cliuchart, Bour?
baki's successor, with the army of tho
East, neur Besancon; and tho Garibal
dians near the Swiss frontier. Tho Ger?
man armies will occupy positions sub?
stantially as follows: Part of the be?
sieging force will bo sent into tho pro?
vince of Champagne, which is to be
occupied as a pledgo for war espouses.
Frederick. Charles' anny headquarters
are at Orleans, aud the Grand Duko of
Mecklenburg-Schwerin hus his troops
near Tours. Von Gooben, opposed to
Faidherbe, occupies Amiens, St. Quen?
tin, and other Northern towus, while
Mauteuifel, now commanding both
Treahkow's aud Yon Werder's armies,
continues to guard tho lines of commu?
nication in tho East of Franco, and
holds his own around Belfort. All the
country lying between these opposing
annies is to be neutral ground. The ar?
mistice is to expiro ou tim 1'JLh of Fe?
bruary, but if we are to believe a rumor
said to be prevalent in Loudon diplo?
matic circles, Count Bibuiurok has suc?
ceeded iu obtaining from the provisional
government preliminary accepts nee of
conditions of peace. A constituent as?
sembly to meet nt Bordeaux is to be
called without delay. This assembly
will decido upon the new form of go?
vernment for France, and take final
uction upon tho conditions of peace,
already agreed upon by tho provisional
goverumeut, who, it should hero bc
stated, remain in authority in Paris as
well as in Bordeaux during tho interreg?
num. The National Guards, who retaiu
their anus, are to maintain order in the
capital. England is sending convoys of
provisions into Paris, and Count Bis?
marck has been requested by Eui Gran?
ville to have them forwarded without in?
terruption. Berlin rejoices amid bon
lires, illuminations and processions; and
tho Emperor of Germany, after thank?
ing God for His mercy, and looking
upon it all as a reward for German pa
triotism and heroism, hopes that peace
may soon follow."
THE FALL or PAULS -The New York
Sun says: "With any other raoo tbau
tho French, it would be sufo to say that
tho war is now virtually over, and that
peace will bo accepted with all tho hu?
miliations it acknowledges and confirms.
But there is a wonderful vitality in that
people, and it may ovon yet break forth
tn some unexpected wuy to astonish and
confound tho world. It is possible that
tho war may still bo continuod by tho
mass of tho French with tho samo tena?
city and bitterness os tho V?ndenos dis?
played in fighting against the Conven?
tion eighty years ago. But this is not
to bo counted on with any great confi?
dence, lt is rather more probable that
the wholo nation will imitate the exam?
ple of Paris, and make peace on such
terms as tho conquerors may exact. But
if France now succumbs altogether, and
.settles down submissively into her pre?
scht place as a broken pow? r, it will bo
only another proof of tho utter exhatts- J
tiou and debility into which she hus
beeu sunk by tho rulo of the bastard ad?
venturer who governed her from the be?
ginning of 18-10 until the surrender of
