COLUMBIA, S. aC.
Wearies lay Morning, September'^. '71. Tlic Perlud of Fair*. Tho era of fairs is fast approaching. AH over the country, we observo notices of the fairs to be held this fall. We hope that our people throughout tho State ure preparing for our State Fair. Let us do our duty in this matter, and make tho fair a decided success. THE POI'E'S LAST ENCYOLIOAIJ.-The text of the Pope's encyclical issued Au? gust 5, mention of which was made by telegraph, is received by mail. He thanks all Bonum Catholics for their abundant demonstrations of affection towards him, as displayed upon his at? taining the twenty-sixth year of his pon? tificate. He believes that if they will continue to unite their vows aud suppli? cations to his, that "the full and abso? lute triumph of the Church" will be sc? oured. "Tho destruction of all tho earthly allies of hell" is confidently looked for, and there is not tho slightest hint given of any design to abandon the venerable claims of the pontificate to temporal power, nor is there even a temporary acquiescence in tho situation, The address is ably and moderately written, but it is tinged throughout with a certain melancholy, naturally sug? gested by the great changes which huve . recently taken place. The many reports of alliances and oounter-alliances among tho powers of Europe which have been flashed across tho cable to ns during the past two weeks .are but a small seleotiou of the alliances Mvhioh are bruited about in the European press. Bat while the cable despatches confined themselves to all sorts of possi? ble and impossible combinations of the larger European powers, the European press does not hesitate to draw the smaller powers likewise into the vortex. One of tho most religious organs of Eu? rope states that Sweden, Denmark and Holland have formed an offensive and defensive alliance, and have conjointly addressed a note to Kassia, in which they express their apprehensions of German ambition, and place thc integrity of their territory under the protection of the Czar. Another paper leaves out Sweden and substitutes in her plaoe Belgium, while their note was addrossed to Eng? land, and not to Russia. Still another version has it that an alliance for mutual defence has been made between Sweden, Denmark, Holland, Belgium, Switzer? land and Greece, but leaves out all in re? gard to a request for protection from any of the larger powers of Europe. Meanwhile, some of the powers mention? ed above, Denmark, Sweden and Hol? land, have each declared officially that as far as they are conoerned, no such engagement has been entered upon or even thought of, and'that all reports to tho ooritrury are mere inventions. But this has by no means satisfied the sensa tionists, who olaim that one of the en? gagements entered upon is absolute secrecy. The whole upshot of the mat? ter is that tho politicians of Europe feel instinctively that something in in the wind, or at least believe they do, and hence rack their brains to find the solu? tion of tho mystery, which each explains aooording to his opinion. In view of these facts, we ought to be very cautious in receiving European political news ut present, particularly that in regard to alliances and to the relations of tho dif? ferent powers, as tho rumors aro at pre? sent afloat principally by uninformed sensational corresponlents or by de? signing men, for the purpose of influ? encing the quotations of bonds and secu? rities. The same sad old story of revolutions, earthquakes and pestilence comes from South America by tho Intent advices. A coDBpiraoy In Peru to surprise the palace and make a prisoner of President Balta was "nipped in tho bud" on the 16th of August. The leaders were arrested and many houses searched for arms. A se? vere earthquake shook was felt on the 21st of August. The smaii-pox has broken out in the Southern towns of Chili. Tho following appointments and changes have been announced at the Exeoutivo Department: ! '? Henry 0. Banks, New York city, Com? missioner of Deeds. ' . ' - Wm. H. Dorrill, of Georgetown, and Christopher Mathews, of Charleston, to be Notaries Public F. W. Sasportas has been suspended as Trial Justioo of Colletou. It is O. B. Farmer, Esq., of Oolleton, who has been appointed Judge of the Second Circuit, vice Judge Z. Platt, de? ceased. "Two HUNDRED ANT> FORTY DEATHS PER DAT."-This is the latest bulletin from one of the cities (Tabreez) of fa mine-strioken Persia. The famine and pestilence, instead of abating, as was supposed, would thus appear to bo get? ting worse and worse. Collapse of the Charleston nepnblloan. MB. EDITOR: IQ what parportB to be tho dyiDg editorial of tho Charleston Republican, conBiderohle injustice is done his Excellency Governor Scott, and on attempt is made to throw odium on his oflioial actione, in regard to subsidizing the Republican press of tho State. I desire through the columns of your paper to place the blame where tho blame belongs. The last session of tho Legis? lature passed a bill giving the public priuting to the Clerks of tho Seriate and House of Representatives, and tho Go? vernor's approval of that bill was ob? tained on the assur nco t hut a consider? able expense would bo saved tho State under their management; hut subse? quent events have proved that, instead of an intention of economy, a "big job" was intended. It is not my object at present to say anything regarding the gentlemen who fathered this job, but it is sufJloieut to remark, en passant1, that they are well versed in political chica? nery, aud have fathered mauy previous jobs, which have resulted in the deple? tion of the State l'reatmry. After the passage of this Printing Dill, a company was formed, called the "Carolina Print? ing Company," of which Mr. Josephus Woodruff, the efficient Clerk of tho Se? nate, was eleoted President. Now, to any fair-minded community, tho fact of a man in whom the Legislature had con? fided tho outlay of such an important item of exp?nseos tho public priuting, over which he should have looked with on eagle eye, being eleoted President, or even having un interest in a couoeru doing this publio work, whose bills be would necessarily have to certify to as being correct, on which -pay men t is made, must attach something boyoud suspicion. Tho Carolina Printing Company, think? ing to make itself felt OH a power, then bought the Charleston Republican and the Daily Union, the latter published in this oity ; and things went on swimmingly until a time arrived when his Excellency Governor Scott was forced, from motives of expediency, in which the welfare ol the State was deeply concerned, to refuse to approve of any more bills for the pub? lic printing, until the matter had been laid before the Legislature for its con? sideration and action in the premises. Upon Governor Scott taking this posi? tion, and the Printing Company's jot being blocked, all mau uer of expostula? tions mid threats have been resorted tc by them-among others, the discontinu' once of the Republican and Union, tin two leading Republican journals in tht State. When it is here stated, und stu; oessful contradiction challenged, that ur. to the present time, over $200,000 hai been drawn for by this Carolina Printing Company, on bills certified to by tb< Clerks of the two Houses, for work dom or said to be done, and large bills fron them still outstanding against the State when it is a well-known fuct that fron $50,000 to $00,000 ought to have beet the extout of printing obligations in curred, it cannot be wondered ut tba Governor Scott, having the interest o the State ut heurt, should refuse to ap provo tiny more bills nut il the mutter hui been laid before the Legislature fo aotion. In regard to the Charleston Rep?blica. ceasing its issue from the foot ol not re coiving sufficient patronage for ita sup port from the State, there is not on word of truth in it. Bills have beei paid for work done in publishing th laws of the State, &c, the amount a which was quite sufficient to huve main tained thut journal in financial comfor for oue year to come, at least; but th hills were eolleoted by the Carolin Printing Company; the proprietor of th Charleston Republican, who, after pock eting the earnings of that paper, refuse to contribute a dollar for its support and allowed the drafts of its financia manager to go to protest, expecting tho Governor Scott would pay the unsettle accounts, rather than see the paper dit continue. Too much oredit cannot b accorded to Governor Scott for hi action in this matter, when it is cons: tiered what he will have to uudergo fror tho party lash, oil caused by his hones and firm resolve to suve the State Tree sury from a party of eur moran ts, ouxiou and williug to suck tho lifo blood fror, the Treasury, and reduce tho Slate t beggary, all for their selfish uud sordi motives of gain. It is not out of th way to state un incident which oecurre on the presentation of one of the ut counts, over o yard In length, of th i printing company, to tho Executive Dt portmeut for payment, the mummt c which was some $13,000. Governc Scott stated that hu was no adept i priuting accounts, nnd would submit i to one well versed in snob matters, whr after o careful examination, reduced th amount 810,000, leaving a balan?a c only 83,000 doe for work done. Th i servos to show the standard of the me .ntereHte?, who would thus resort t such low methods to rob the Stat? throwing themselves behind the ar. prov?l of the bill by the Governor, whoi they knew to hove but little know led g in printing matters. If the proprietoi of tho -Charleston Republican hod on desire to servo the Republican party b tho continuance of that paper, the could have done so, for they offered tb paper for sale for #10,000-85,000 eas and $5,000 on time, with a guarantee < 86,000 per annum State patronagi They were offered by good Republiaani anxious for tho success of the pape 84,000 in oash, and the balance, 80,001 to be taken out in State patronage, I be made over to the Carolina Printie Company, for its security; but they hu no desire to serve either the paper or tl party, OB shown by its dinoontinnanc thinking in their short-sightedness < east the obliquy on Governor Soot These few items are given to the publii in anticipation of the coming even when tho misdeeds of tho Carolit Printing Company, aud tho parties COD posing it, will be thoroughly vontillutoi If the leading artiele in the last issue of the Charleston Republican had been supervised before its publioatiou by Mr. Fox, its able and accomplished editor, subsequently to his formal interview with his Excellency Governor Scott, I am pursuaded a decided different tone would have been adopted. * * * CA VINO IN OP COAX MINES.-A corres? pondent of the New York Times, writing from Wilkesbarre, says: Tho Hoileuback coal mines, belonging to tho Wilkesbarre Coal and Iron Com pauy, situated uear this city, caved in with a terrible crash about 8 o'clock Saturday night. Thone mines had heeu iu au unsafe couditiou for sumo timo, aud u few days ugo thu indications of dunger became BO decidud that the miners concluded to abandon them ou Satunluy, which they did but a fow hours previous to the caving, thereby prevent? ing a horror uot second to the lato Pitts ton disaster. A portion of tho tools and implements wore successfully removed, but part of thomiue collapsed suddenly, tilling the yet undisturbed chambers with such a powerful rush of air that boxes, tools, caro, ?fcc, were hurled iu all direc? tions, while, fortunately, no ono was in thc mino, nnd all further attempts at re? moving them wore abandoned. Tho moss of the mino fell Saturday evening, startling tho city, although tho occur? rence was expected. Six acres of ground fell at ouce to a depth of neurly 200 feet, presenting a terrible chasm, and creating great fissures in the surrounding banks. Thousand? of spectators immediately docked to thescene, notwithstanding the threatening appearance of the banks, but no accident occurred. Tho mines were nenrly worked ont, so the loss to the Company is not so great as might bu imagined; but the miners employed therein will lose materially, being thrown out of work. A MURDEROUS ASSAULT.-In the New York Journal of Commerce, of Wednes? day last, the following paragraph ap? pears: .*At the Yorkville Police Court yester? day, Justice Bixby committed Dennis Burns without bail, and Thomas Kane aud James McNamara iu default of Si,OOO each, to await the result of the injuries of Timothy Hurley, who was, it is alleged, mortally shot by Burns, near the coruer of Ninth avenue and Sixty third street, lato Monday night, without other provocation than Hurley's ap? proaching to ascertain the cause of un uproar which the prisoners were mak? ing." The Timothy Hurley referred to in the foregoing can scarcely be the Timo? thy Hurley of our Legislature. lu the UrBt place, our Tim Hurley is by far too shrewd aud sensible to put himself in the way of boiug shot iu a street row, and, in the second place, a more than passing notico would have been made of the fact. The Timothy referred to is doubtless some unfortunate son of Go? tham who rejoices iu tho cognomen of his illustrious name sake. Mr. Hurley, of South Carolina, has not yet built the Enterprise Railroad, and until he ac? complishes that feat his mission is not ended. - Charleston Courier. A Washington despatch says it has been the opinion of the Treasury officials for some timo past that the rapid and continued increase of the claimants on the pension lists after the war had so long terminated was somewhat irregular. Investigations have been made from time to time, but these have only developed isolated cases of fraud, in most of which the offenders have been brought to jus? tice. Detectives in the service of tho Treasury Department now profess to have got on the track of information, which, when thoroughly sifted, will open up a wide fluid of fraud in this branch of the public service. It ?B as? serted that combinations exist, extend? ing throughout the largo cities, especial? ly in the Southern States, which have made a regular business of working up fraudulent lists of colored claimants who never had an existence, except iu the imaginations of the swindlers. SERIOUS ACCIDENT TO A UNITED STATES OFFICER-CAPT. W. C. BARTLETT THROWN FROM HIS HORSE AND BADLY INJURED. Captain \V. C. Bartlett, of Company E, 3d Artillery, stationed nt Summerville, met with a serious, if nut fatal, accident on Suudny. Ho was enjoying a horse? back ride with Lieutenant Burrows, when tho latter, being somewhat in the rear, galloped up to the captain, whose tiorse, being a spirited animal, took fright from tho rustling of tho leaves and became unmanageable. Captain Bartlett maintained his seat under great difficulties, until tho horse made a sud? den dash, throwing him against a tree, breaking both of his thighs and ono of his legs in two places. Captain Bartlett is well known in this city as the officer who commanded during tko Mayoralty election. Much sympathy is felt here for him.-Charleston Courier. THE HEALTH OF THE CITY.-The eily registrar reports the receipt of only oue oertiUoate of death from yellow fever daring the twenty-four hours ending at noon yesterday. This death took place on Saturday, but was not reported until Sunday afternoon, and if such delays contiuue the city registrar will make an example of three or four offenders. The whole of Sunday aud Monday victo with? out a siegle fatal oase of yellow fovor, and we hear of no new patients. In ad? dition to the above, the city registrar re? ports two deaths from consumption, one from convulsions, one from softening of tho brain, and ono from sorofula. [Charleston News, 12th. The Feji Islands have ilnally esta? blished a responsible government and seo all its machinery iu successful opera? tion. We aro informed that the first criminal court has boen held, at which throe natives wera oouvictod of capital crimes and sentenced to death. This is indisputable evidenco of civilization. ? ASSASSINATION IN TENNESSEE.-A spe? cial despatch, dated Huntingdon, Tenn., 5th instant, to the Nashville Union and American, says: "This afternoon, as a man, named Thomas D. Roseberry, was going to bis home by tho Jaoksou Hoad, he was overtaken by a party of seven men and shot with doable-barreled guns, fifteen ball? taking effect in his breust, from which ho died almost instantly. Four of the parties were Radicals-pro? bably all of thom wore. Roseberry was a Confederate soldier." W. J. Magrath, Esq., tho Presiduut of tho South Carolina Railroad Company, who went to Loudon in July last to no gotinto tho oxchango of tho sterling bonds of his oompuny for tho new first mortgago bonds, urrived wifely in Charleston, yesterday afternoon. Mr. Magrath completed successfully and promptly tho delicate business in his ohargo, und will receive a hearty welcome from his friends nt homo. [ \Jllt.t IIMIIM). ittll.l, The residence and out-bouses of Mr. S. \V. Buchenau, living near Tiltou, Ga., ?a ?oil of tho venerable John Bach man, L>. 1).,) was destroyed by firo on tho night of tho 5th iustuut. Ho lost every? thing, including many valuable memen? toes, tho result of the gatheriug of years. Being cut off from neighborly aid, the jiro fiend did its work effectually, inflict? ing severe loss upon him. ABOLITION OF SLAVERY IN SIAM.-Tho King of Siam has resolved to set free all the slaves in his realms. The perpetual abolition of slavery will take place in that country on tba 31st of January, 1872. A tax is to be paid by way of re? munerating owners for tho compulsory manumission, and the experiment of free lubor will thus be condo in still another country of the world. THE EVIL OF THE AGE.-Hearch among the statutes of New York has unearthed ono which appears to cover the siu of publishing abortionists' advertisements. The Tribune understands that tho law officers have notified the papers hereto? fore offending iu this regard that if the offence be not promptly discontinued their proprietors will be prosecuted. A father nnd sou, named Steen, were shot dead on tho rond, in Montgomery County, Miss., tho other day. Two gen? tlemen saw the deed committed by two men ambushed iu au ndjo:ning field, whom they recognized as having been concerned in former difficulties with the Steens. The assassins, named Scott and Teet, escaped. Miss Lucy W. Chandler, described as a lovfcly young girl, from Boston, was drowned while baining in the surf at Newport, R. I., one day labt week, with? in sight of her friends. Her body, which was carried out by the undertow, was not recovered till the third day after. A big dclegntiou of Southern editors culled upon President Grant, yesterday, and grumbled about the lack of patron? age fur their papers. The President lis? tened to tho grumbling with his custom? ary complacence, and, naturally enough, gave them no very cheering answer. \Neic York Herald. Two youths at Lexington, Miss., were toying with a pistol. Ouo of them slipped in a cartridge unknown to the other, who innocently snapped the pis? tol at him and shot him dead. Mme. Hindley, tho equestrienne of Barnum's circus, was thrown from her carriage, at Rome, in New York State, a few days ago, and died Wednesday morning. The Washington authorities have de? termined to suppress all bawdy houses iu that city atouce, only giving tho pro? prietors notice to quit. The Mississippi is lower than it has been for many years before. Cattle now roam where a few months ago steam? boats navigated. Funeral Invitation. Tko friends and acquaintances of Mr. and Mrs. P.

Suber arrived in Culumbia, yesterday, after a pleasant sojourn of several weeks at tho White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. Both those gallant gentlemen aro matrimonially inclined, it is pre? sumed; but, as has been thu case on several previous occasions, gave way to more persevering suitors, and-well, we must out with it-wero "cutout." They are endeavoring however, a la Tom Moore, to keep their spirits up, and are consoling ono another, evidently having strong faith in the old adage, that "there is just as good fish," otc. A singular accident happened to a pony, yesterday afternoon. Whilo at? tempting to scratch his head with his right hind foot, it caught in his month, and was so tightly wedged, that it re? quired the united exertions of several persons to release him from his unusual and unpleasant situation. What next? If Mr. Symmcrs was not born a grocer, ho has taken to the business wonderfully well. Ho knows where the best articles are to bo obtained, and always keeps such on hand. Tho best evidence of this is the immense business he carries on. His store was enlarged a short time ago, and yet he complains ol insufficient room. The Active and Ku Klux base ball clubs played quite nn interesting game, yesterday afternoon, being tho third time in which these two clubs have been matched, and tho first in which the Actives have beon victorious. Tho ruuE made aro as follows: Actives, 53; Ka Klux, 25. Glory enough to oblit?rale past defeats. An opportunity will be afforded our business men, during tho next day or two, to secure the valuable trade ol Union County. Columbia is tho best market the up-country has, and her merchants should avail themselves of all chances to increase that patronage. Mr. li. M.

To judge from the great number ol buildings in process of construction, Columbia is pushing along rapidly, Among the builders may be mentioner! Messrs.
