COLUMBIA. S? C.
Friday l^orninjr; July 28.18?t What the Prussian shot and shell could n'oV'tlo to do'tuoiolizo tho French loyalty ol tho people of Strasburg, the love of public placo is accomplishing with the j, greatest ease. ? Alsatians hunger for officiai positions of honor and profit as eagerly as tho provorbial Ameriom offioe eeokor. Seven of the former Freuoh officials who stood by the gallant General Ulrich to the bitter end, now hold posi? tions under the new imperial rule; mapy of tbe old justices of th? peabe Lavo entered tho Gorman- service, and the former gendarme^ ot the Third Napoleon are eager to preserve.the pence of the good city of Strasburg for his Majesty William First. * So readily do patriotic Europeans who have long lived at the publio expense transfer their allegiance, only to continuo thom in comfortable quarters, that it does not seem to matter much whom they servo. A COLOBKD PBEAOHEII LOOKING THINGS ? IN THE FACE:--The Baton Bouge Sugar Planter says that one day last week Mr. E. N. Bean, the ohiof constable, balled on Rev. Luke Billnpa, a worthy oolorod man, who has accumulated some proper? ty since thewar, and solicited his vote and influenco.for Robert Morris aa the del?galo to the Republican convention in ?^ew Orleans next month. Mr. Billups _ made this reply to him: "I cannot support that man nor any other stranger: I seo around me gen I lo? men working in the fields with tho plow ami boo who wore wealthy before the war. Among them I seo my old master, Thompson W. Bird, earning his bread by the sweat of his brow, while noinr oomero are making their living easily by staying in the shade, and that is some? thing I do not understand. I have lived iu this Pariah thirty-three years and have always been well treated by every one residing here, and I shall give my influence to norman who is not identi? fied with the Parish. This is all I have to say about tho matter." It is hardly necessary to add that the conference was immediately brought to u ?lose. There are now no loss than fifteen monarchs in Europe who have lost theil occupation and 'are out of honest em ployment, with little or no prospeet ol finding visible moans of support in thai country. They are: Prince Gustav? Wnsa, of Sweden, sent to grass in 1809 Count do Ohambord, August 12, 1830 Duke Charles, of Brunswick, Hep tem bei 17, 1880; Oount de Paris, February 24 1848; Duke Robert de Parma, 1852 Grand Duke Ferdinand, of Tuscany 1860; Duke Francis, of M?dena, 1860 Franois II, of Naples, February, 1861 the widow of King Otto, of Greeae, Oe tober 24, 1862; Duke Adolf, of Nassau 1866; King George, of Hanover, 1866 the Elector of Hes -o, 1866; Empres: Charlotte, of Mexico, 1867; Isabella, o Spain, 1869; Emperor Napoleon, 1870 All these orownless soveroigus are foolinj away their time in Europe-doing worn than nothing, in faot-wbilo, at the aam< timo, the retail peanut trado of tbi country constantly cries to them, tram pet-tonguod, to come over and cmbarl in it. On ANO i" it UN AND RmnoNMBzi.-Jamo A. MoMoater, of the New York Fret mans Journal, (Catholic,) thus speaks ci the two orders out of which sprung th. late riot. First, of the Orangemen b says: There is an oath-bound soorot associa tion of foreigners in New York, knowi here, by way of deluding the thought less, as an "American Protestant Asso elation. " It is made up of the scum o the most degraded class of Irish set vants of the British orown. It is, pur and simple, tho Orauge Lodges of Ire land. Their secret oaths have not been kop secret, They have boen made known in one way and another, many times These oaths are utterly atrocious. Th fundamental organization of tho Orange men is an outrage on any civilized soe oty. Tbe object of their accursed sec is to shed the blood of Catholics. And then of tbe Ribbonmon: There in, in this country, and in thi city, a large body of Irishmen, baptize Catholics, but not in tho oommunion c . the Catholic Ohnrob. They are boun by tbe "Ribbon mo n's" oatb. Poor fe lo wal they bind themselves, by an oat doubly forbidden, to avengo wrong done to their olergy, or their Churo! And tbe Churoh they swear thus to prc toot excommunicates every man of thei for taking this oath. It excommunicate them, first, for the manner and form c their Beeret oath. It also exoommnn: oates them for the nature of that oatl whioh is forbidden by the Oatholi Churoh as recognizing private, or socro revengo. We uso Mr. MuMaetor's language "Thus," he continues, "there are tw miserable factions of Irishmen disturt ing the peaoe of New York-ono < ' whioh factions, Ribbonism, is distinct! exoommunicateil by the Catholic Cbnrol and the othor is hated by bor, as beio( distinctively, of tbe devil." - An Ohio Judge has decided that tl: words of.a "common eonjd oro' not m tionable." ! Th? Charleston city Election, and tn? 1 Irian Vote. -y ' >;v COLUMBIA, JulvA27, J871. MR.-EDITOR: j&Bow n$, through ?he mediuu^of youri poper?'to oaU'tbfe atten? tion ofj.jjthe forejgn element portion/of yonr readers ((or wbbse behellt'.jit ?was probably written) to an editorial in this morning's Union, under the caption of "The Demoornoy and ?the Charleston City Election." In it an attomptismado to prevent the foreign element, especially tba Irish portion of it, from voting the Democratic ticket' by casting odium on that party, and by false statements. To the writer of this communication, who lived in Charleston at the time and voted - at the Mayor's election there in tho very height of. Know Nothingism, it would bo difficult to make it appear why the Irish would not vote for, and bo in harmony with, the Demoorotio porty. I think I happen to know a little moro about Charleston city and people, in those days, than does the oditor of tho Union, and I can Boy, without fear of contradiction, that the porty who, with the aid of the foreign element, elected Charles Macbeth, Democrat, over F. D. Richardson, Know Nothing, io 1854, wore the real friends of tho foreigners. To my mind, tho portion of the editorial in questiou referring, to the IriBh ele? ment would apply with more force to this city than to Charleston, for I regret that ciandor compels meto say that the Know Notbiug party elected E. J. Arthur Mayor of this city on that issue, and, by its influonco, put out of the Council a gen? tleman who was legally elected an Alder? man by the people, simply because he was a foreigner. P. C. CHARLESTON, S. C., July 25, 1871. COLONEL D. W?ATT ALHEN: lu your letter of tho 17th instant, to the Colum? bia PHON'IX, you are pleased to say, "Tons or phosphates have been shipped over the South Carolina Railroad, when only a sample was sufficient for the re? quirements' of the premium lists." As tbe company whioh I represent shipped three tons last fall, which were exhibited at your fair, and whioh were the only tons, I believe, exhibited, I would, for your information, state that tbeso three tons were at my request con Bigued by tho General Agents, Messrs. W. C. Bee & Co., to our Local Agents, Messrs. ti. O'Nealo & Son, Columbia, S. C., and not consigned to you as Secre? tary; aud tbat the freight was paid by our Local Agents, Messrs. R. O'Nealo & Son. On making application in person at your offico, you boin?; present, I beHeye, being un annual member, your assistant, Colonel Duncan, suggested that I could make the entry in my own name, with? out further cost, which I declined to do, paying tho entrance fee, and taking re? ceipt in the name of the company-wit? ness books of your office. 1 incidentally learned that some mem? ber of your' society was very much exercised at the appearance of such u vast stock of phosphates, shipped nt the expense of the Sontb Carolina Railroad; presumo bo might have been a stockhold? er in suid railroad. Never having known the gentleman's name, I bavo heretofore been unable to undeceive bim. But for his further information, I would say that the Sulphuric Acid Company are neither spongers by nature, or inimical to the South Carolina Railroad. Witness the heavy shipments of fertilizers made over that road by them, and oonscquent in? creased shipment of half dozeu bales of cotton for each ton neut to the plauters. In conclusion, Colonel, permit me to say that I expeot to ship several tons to your coming fair, so that visitors may seo bow our fertilizers are put up-to pay tho freight on tho tons shipped and more, if required, to pay for space whereou lo exhibit the samo. Were I allowed to suggest, I would say tbat it might bo well at next fair to ap? point n Smelling Committee, to seo that the railroads wore not imposed on, and to debar for tho future auy party or par? ties guilty of such imposition from making entries; and I hope it may not be amiss for me to say that tho gentle? man referred to should bavo a seat on said oommitteo. Yours, respectfully, JOHN L. BLACK, Traveling Agent for ?Sulphuric Acid and Supor-Phospbate Company. < ?? ?? ? An important conference of tbe D?mo? cratie politicians is to be held at Sarato? ga, New York, next week, to "take soundings," us the phrase is, with refer ouoo lottie noxt Presidency, with purticu lar reference to the Southern element. Tho presence of BO many Southern poli ticians in New York st present.it seems, has been tho means of eliciting an anx? ious inquiry as to the position of the party at lurga relative to the so-called "now doparturu," and it ia to satisfy that inquiry tbat the New York leaders have agreed to meet them, informally, at the time aud place referred to. REMARKABLE INCIDENT-A WHOLE FAMILY BDRIED WITHIN A WEEK.-A re? markable series of deaths, by which a mother and tbreo children were buried, occurred on Plum street last week. The mother, a widow lady named Williams, was buried in the samo grave with two of the ohildreu, while the third and last, buried yesterday, waa laid by ber eido. What is chiefly remarkable in this in? stance is that they are carried off by no epidemic, but died under ordinary cir? cumstances.-Petersburg Courier. Suiciding is all tho rago in Riohmond, Va.

Scott, Stevenson and Van Trump, roached this placo on Satur' day last, aoo;0mp?nied by A. &) .Wallaoey M. O. from phis District. Aa, much ef? fort had previously been mode to pr?? pare auitablo casca for them, the com mittoo woro ready to go vlgoroualy io work early on Monday morning; and th? early part of tho doy was occupied in tho examination of aevoral young mon of thiB town. In the afternoon, Hou. W. Dr 8impaon and Ool. B. VV. Dall, of Laureus, after having obbycd summons to meet the oonimitteo at various points, obtained an examination, and loft curly on Tuesduy morning for home. Tho second day was opeucd by continuing tho examination of persons from tins town and the surrounding country. Tho street reports aro to the effect thnt tbo p urai H tonco'of tho majority of th? com? mittee-aided by tho military and other iofiuenoea equally potent-had beou re? warded by tho discovery of a witness who had modo out a capital case for the next Republican catnpaign document. This witness, it is reported, stated io substance to tho committee that be knew a number of persons who had buen en? gaged io tho Ku Klux outrages; aud gavo the names of oighteou gentlemon from this vicinity-persons of high re? spectability. These eighteen bad per? formed a wonderful amount of deviltry; bad most of thom been present at tho murder of the negro, Anderson Brown, which occurred lust winter, four miles from this place; nod many of them were also the murdorersof tbo militia captain, Jim'Raiuey, occurring shortly afterward, iu tho He tjulun neighborhood, ten miles bolow here. They bad also rnidod ou Rosa's hotel, the Probato office, and dnue other crimes equally heinous. Tho witness also admitted, ou a cross-exam? ination, that lie bad stolon a horse, a quantity of bacon and tobacco from hi? employer, and waa generully 'a bud mau.' Elis name is William K. Owens, and be has beou employed for some timo iu the coach factory of Messrs. Kerr <fc Roach. The statements of tbis witness wero so palpably false iu every particular as to en nae little concern to those whose names be bas used ia bis story; but at the same time, it is sufficiently credible, perhaps, fur all tho purposes for which the testi mouy is wanted at Washingtou. "It is announced that the committee will oloso their work bore, to day, (Wednesday,) and dissolve until Sep? tember, when many of the unexamined witnesses will bo called to Washington, aud their testimony taken iu time to tiuish np tho investigation before the meeting of Cougress. Thus far, no arrests of suspected porsous liavo beou made nt tbis place." The same paper gives the following: "On Saturday night last, tba colored brass baud of tbis town assembled bo fore Rawlinson's Hotel, to serenade the Republican members of tho Congres? sional Ku Klux Committee, who bad arrived here that afternoon. An im? mense crowd of persous filled tho side? walk abovo and below tho hotel, collect? ed partly by the music of the baud, and partly, perhaps, to create a d?monstra? tion in houor of tho members of tho committee. Thc marshals of the town, under nu ordinance of the council, oc? cupied themselves in au effort to koop th? sido-walks clear of tho crowd, so ins not to obstruct tba usual passage of por Hous engaged un other business. To? ward tho oloso of tho demonstration, Wm. H. Snyder-one of the marshals while d?Bobarging this duty, met one Tom. Johnson, colored, who refused to givo woy to tho command of tho officer of the law. Snyder thou attempted to arrest bim; but Tom. rofusing to no knowledgo, thu supremacy of tho law, jerked IOORO several timea aud attempted to force bis way ut tho hoad of tbo crowd, whether or no. Upon a third attempt to arrest bim, he jerked Sny? der's baton from bis baud aud knocked him down. Suyder thou drew a pistol and fired five shots at tho belligerent darkey, wounding bira iu tho fuco, shoulder, baud, arm aud back-euch shot taking effect, but not infliutiug dangerous wounds. Tbo balls have becu extracted, aud Tom. is io a fair way to recover. Aftor a special investigation of tbe facts Ueforo tho town council, Mr. Suyder was exonerated of all blame iu tba matter, the shooting having occur? red in thc discbarge of bis duty as. au officer of the town." Tbo Chester Reporter says : "We aro informed by persons from Yorkvillo that, cn lost Saturday eveniug, ?t tbo table of tho King's Mountain Hotel, in that town, Major James Burry, incensed at finding himself iu close proximity to A. S. Wallace, seized a pitcher of butter-milk and dashed it into tue face of that distinguished Con? gressman.

BENEFITS OF LAUGHTER.-Probably there is not the remotest corner or little inlet of the miaute blood vessels of the body that does not feel some wavelet from tho great convulsion produced by hearty laughter, shaking the central man. The blood moves more lively-probably its cbemic.il, electric .or vital condition is distinctly modified-it conveys a different impression to all the organs of the body, as it visits them.on that par? ticular mystic journey, when the man is laughing, from what it does at 'other times. And thus it is that a good laugh lengthens a man's life, by convoying a distinct and additional stimulus, to the vital forces. The time may dome when physicians, attending more closely than they do now to tbe innumerable subtle influences which the soul exerts upon its tenement of elsy, shall prescribo for torpid patients, "so many peats of laugh? ter, to bo undergone nt such aud sacha time," just as they do that; far more objectionable prescription, a pill or an electric or galvanic shock. Look most to your spending. No matter what comes in, if moro goes out you will always be poor. The art is not iu making money, but iu keeping it; little expenses, liko mice in a barn, when they are many, make great waste. Bair by bair h eada get bald; straw by straw, the thatch goes off the cottage; and drop by drop the rain comes into the chamber. A barrel is soon empty, if the tap leaks but a drop a minute. When you mean to save, begin with your month; there are many thieves down the red lane. The ale jug is a great waste. In all other things keep within compass. Never stretch your legs farther than the blankets will reach, or you will soon be cold. lu clothe*, choose suitable and lasting Btu ff, and not tawdry fineries. To be warm is the main thing; never mind the looks. A fool may make money, but it needs a wise man to upend it. Bemember it is easier to build two chimneys than to keep one going. If you give all to back aud board, there is nothing left for the savings bank. Fare bard and work bard while you are young, and you bavo a chance to rest when you are old. LIST OP NEW ADVERTISEMENTS.
