COLUMBIA, 8. C.
_i_i_1 , . ._!_j_'< iii_,\ ' ? ??? ; Tnesd*? Morning,Ootob?r 3.1871. Oar City Afluir?. ?8 oar readers hove observed, the allegations made in this jouro.u.1, with respect to tbe City Oounoil and their operations, has not been disputed. It now romains for the whole transaction io bu thoroughly investigated and ex? posed. Let the citizens of Columbia look to tho welfare of the oity. A ring has fastened upon the city. Let it be broken. The Board of Trade have very properly taken the matter up. Let their investigations be thorough and searching. Tho eyes of all good citizens, without respect to party, are upon this investigation. Let this entiro transac? tion bo exposed, Justice demands it, and the interests of Columbia require it. <-??-> It ought not to surprise any ono to learn that the friends of Napoleon III are secretly organizing and plotting iii Paris to restore him to the throne of Prance. No one supposed thut he would remain a privuto citizen. ntCuisci hurst, or that his friends would bo idle in his behalf .so long us there was one chance left to nguiu proclaim him Empe? ror. His whole life was full of trick and plot; in fact, he soldom took a direct path'to auy end, prefetriug ruttier to reach it by devious courses. If he can mount tho throne again ho will, the only question being, has ho tho power to do it? All present circumstances would be favorable to the attempt, wore he quite ? certain of the people. Just now, the people of Franco are an authority, which is more than eau be* Baid of that hybrid growth called a government. Tho dis? armament of the National Guard is in his favor, for the Guard hated Napoleon and would fight against his restoration to power. It is doubtful if tho regular army would not support him were he again to place himself at its head. It is well known that many of the leading generals of France are still ardent sup? porters of tho Empire, and thnt they would be able to control the army in great degree. Tho strength of tho re? public appears to be exaatly nothing; the Assembly is arrayed against the Chief Execrative, and the Chief Execu? tive against the Assembly, and the peo? ple have little confidence in either. It is this condition of affairs which gives the friends of Napoleon III a chance to plot, aud even a chance to plot success? fully. -!-?--*- I If Connecticut does not speedily make a marked improvement upou her wooden nutmegs, it is to be feared that the in? ventive geniuB of California will carry that State aheud of her. At a recent election for assessor in San Francisco, the Radicule made a good many votes by surroptitiounly applying nitrato of silver to the name of tho opposing candidate. As the application produced no immedi? ate effect on the ballots, they were depo? sited in the box without suspicion on the part of the voters. But when the vote came to be counted the chemical aotion of the nitrate of silver had per? formed its mission and the name had disappeared from the ballots. A man who would be guilty of snob conduct as that couldn't be trusted with a five dil lar bill a hundred yards from home by his own cherished mother-in-law. - ? ? ? ? ?

CITIZEN. ?-??-> FIENDISH OOTHAQES ny NEGROES -A report from Oreeubrier County, Wost Virginia, gives the details of a most dia? bolical ont rugo which occurred in tho township of Palestine. It seems that ti mau iu tho employ of Mr. Georgo V. Purry hud a difficulty with Mr. Lewis F. Watts, in which Watts was whipped. Watts thou employed two negroes and ii whim muu to go to Perry's ut night time for the purpo^o of beating Iiis antagonist. Thu whito mun retnuiued in the rond and the negroes knocked at tho door ami were admitted by Mr. Perry. Tho man they were af tor stepped behind Ibo door as it was oponed, und tho negroes, not seeing him in tho room, wont up stairH in search of him. As soon ns they start? ed np stairs he sprang out und ran to tho railroad for assistance. The negrous, after searching in vain for bim up stairs, came down and fell upon Mr. Perry and his young sou and beat thom fearfully. They thou seized Mrs. Perry, threw her on the bcd aud tied her by the hair to the bed, after which they brutally out? raged her person. The fiends then at? tempted to outrage a little girl only twelve years of age, doiug her tho most serious injury iu their hellish efforts. Mrs. Perry, in ber struggles to escupe, had nearly all her hair pulled from lier head by the roots, but she finally suc? ceeded and fled to a neighbor's in her night clothos for protection. Tho man who had gone for assistance returned with others and captured the offenders. They thou went to Watt's aud arrested him and his son, and kept them secure until next day. Tho news spread rapidly, aud tito people flocked in with guns, de? termined on lyuching nil the guilty partios. Those, however, were secured in a strongly built house, so that they were not reached, although desperate efforts were made. They were tried and Beut to tho Monroe Jail, where they re? main securely guarded. A JAIL. DELIVERY AT BENNETSVILLE. i'he Times says: "All the prisoners cou fiucd iu our jail made their encape last Thursday moruing. Sheriff Easterliu went up into the jail for the purpose of role ising one of the pri.souers whose time of confinement bud expired. As he entered the door leading into the pass age, one of the prisoners threw him vio? lently against the iron bur fastening thc door aud stunued him. While he WIIH iu this condition, John ll. McQouge, confined for the killing of Robert J. Breeden, at Clio, last July, York McCall, imprisoned for larceny, and a boy named David -, passed ont. The sheriff's j sou met the last mimed on tho steps and stopped him, but the other two made good their escape. On examining the jail, tho sheriff discovered that during the nigbt the lock on the cell in which the prisoners were confined had becu broken by means of nu iron bar which they had procured in someway. Know? ing that heywould enter the jail early in the morning for the purpose of releasing one of their number, they gathered in tho passage and prepared for him, with the above rosult. Owing to the beauti? ful jury law that we now have, there was no oourt held for Marlboro at the regu lar time in September, and therefore these mon could not be tried. They tried themselves, and tigreod upon a ver? dict of 'not guilty,' and have loft for parts unknown." We regret to nnuonnce tho death, from chronic dysentery, at the residenco of Mr. M. Pollitzer, of Mr. Chas S. Kuli, a native of Austria, aged sixty yours. Mr. Kuh bad been ill for a loug time, and all medical efforts to ameliorate his condition were useless.

A GOSSIPING: Ou) RICHMOND BARDER ON THINGS OP THE PAST.-Lomax Smitb, a barber in the Exohango Hotel, Rich mond, i? a relie of tho palmy days of Virginia. A- writer in the Petersburg Progresa satin tho old gentleman's ohair, to whom Smith gossiped about old times: "A nico collection of gentlemen, sir," said Lomax, "this oonvention at Assem? bly Hull; mauy very genteel and nble persons there, sir. It does me good to see again in Virginia tho best people j coming forward to take part iu politics. Aud yet, sir, there aro some great men here, too-scattered about among tho hundreds I don't know; but-excuso me, sir, turu your face a Utile to tho kit you aau't remember tho convention of '29, can you? Too young! Yes, yeal j Well, there wus Mr. Junina Madison, aud thal other gentleman, very smart, but rallier flighty, Mr. Randolph, of Roan? oke, und more than 1 can tell uow. You have got big mon herc to-day, but, bless my soul, sir, they wus all giants then; lhere wasn't a humble individual hero. Giants, sir, giants, every ono." Aud Lomax re-strapped his razor, turned our hoad gently and began again: "And how did they como hero, sir? Omnibuses, hucks? Not they! Private carriages, private .servants, and each hud a square mahogany box, with silver mountings. In this were four t-quaro buttles, trimmed with vines und leaves of gold; ono held old piuoiippln rum, ono brandy aud houey-pouch and honey, sir; ono sherry und ono Madeira. No whiskey aud no drinking at bars. The case was in every delegate's room, with the key put away, but," ?nd hero Lomax thoughtfully aud suggestively drew his razor through th? palm of un huuest huud, "their constituents know where tho key was; sir. Yes, sir! And shav? ing thom wus fifty cents. 'Ko change! Those were days! Why, nothing now is as good as it was, and I eau tell tho rea? son. Ever since 1850, when they got up the universal suffrage, things have been goiug dowu, dowu, down. I never used to shave anybody that wan nobody, and now I hardly ever shave anybody that is anybody. Yes, sir, that 1850 suffrage commenced tho whole thing, and now uothiug is liku it used to be. Why, sau? sage, sir, sausage! the old Virginia lux? ury 1 What is it now? It used to be mude ont of tho oh (doest part of the hog, und now yon'ro lucky if it's u hog at all; ?ind when it is, there is nothing but gristle and lenu." Lomax drew a long sigh, wo gently rose, and "declining the chauge," left the premises with tho con? viction that Lomax was more than half right. FIVE ST?HES, A HOTEL, AND Two NEWS?

It is stated that in New York city, re? cently, a quantity of human hair, silky, silver gray, and thirty inches long, was sold for 835 an ounce-neatly twice ns much aa gold will bring. Ono house in that city has imported 0,000 pounds of hair sinoo January, paying for it $100,000 in gold. They have at work on it 103 girls, who earn from twelve to eighteen dollars a week ; and yet they und tho demand greater than the supply. Hair has advanced twenty five per cent, in market value, and is likely to go up twenty-five per cent. moro. At last, tho pestiferous house-flies uro to moot tho futo they deserve.
