For President of thc United States.
For vice-President
II. GRATZ BROWN, of BlUionrt.
How tho Money Went.
It is hardly necessary to say anything
moro to the honest and intelligent peo?
ple of South Carolina in regard to
Franklin J. Moses. They aro well satis?
fied of his profligacy, hts extravagance,
his venality, und his total moral depra?
vity. But there is nothing which im?
presses the people so mach as definite
facts aud explicit figures. Wu all know,
in a general way, of Moses' corruption.
We know that through his manipula?
tions as Speaker of tho House, with the
connivance of Treasurer Parker, tho
whole reoeipts from last year's taxes
amounting to nearly a million of dollars
-were made way with through a com?
bination of fraud and extravagance in
tho payment of alleged legislativo ex?
penses. Every proper object of tho
State's care and support has suffered in
consequence. The Lunatic Asylum has
not received a Binglo dollar of tho appro?
priations made to it for this year; tho
penitentiary next to nothing; tho public
schools have been supported-Buch aa
have been carried on at all-upon the
special assessments made upon the school
districts; the Professors of the University
have been without a cent for more than
a year; the salaries of the Judges aro
several quarters in arroars. In short,
the fraudulent pay oortilicates of Speaker
Moses have gobbled np every dollar in
the Treasury. Scarcely a single honest
claim against the State has been paid.
We have now some additional and in?
disputable evidence of tho way in which
the people have been robbed and plun?
dered. The vouchers in the Treasurer's
office show the following payments, made
during the present year, upon certificates
signed by Franklin J. Moses, Jr., for ex?
penses of employees alone of the House
of Representatives:
176 clerks. $94,019 25
162 porters. 25,917 05
177 messengers. 67,996 60
46 pages. 4,044 00
Total. 8191,976 60
Here, then, we have 561 employees of
the House of Representatives, drawing
money from the State Treasury to tho
amount of $191,976.60. How many
more there may bo, who still hold certi?
ficates as yet unpaid, we know not.
There is, however, a large amount of
such claims still outstanding.
But think of it, people of South Caro
lina, you men who profess to see no
ohoico between Tomliuson and Mosesl
This man who by your default may be
made Governor of South Carolina,
issued at the last session of the Legisla?
ture pay certificates to 561 employees of
the House of Representatives, or at the
rate of four and a half waiting men for
each member of the House-124 in all.
The pay, too-nearly $200,000-is 500
per cent, moro than the entire legisla
tivo expenses of former days. Gr?at
God, if Moses, us Speaker of the House,
can defraud the State of so much money,
where will be the limit to his rascality
when he becomes Governor!
The taxes, this winter, will be more
than double what they have ordinarily
been, under oven Radical rule. Proba
bly not less than $4,000,000 will be paid
into the public ooffers. Does any sens!
ble man imagine thut even a fraction of
this enormous sum will be devoted to
legitimate purposes, if Moses, the chief
of the corruptionists, is at the head of
the Government? No, fellow-oitizens.
Yonr public schools, your Lunatic Asy
lunts, your penitentiary, your Univer?
sity, your courts, all the institutions of
good government and every requisite to
the peace, good order and prosperity of
the commonwealth, will be neglected,
and you will have your hard earnings
forced from you solely to pamper the
profligacy and gratify the vicions and
extravagant tastes of MOBBS and his con?
How mon will grow impervious to
shame is shown by the result of the
plan lately adopted in Liverpool of pub?
lishing tho names of drunkards ii) tho
newspapers, to doter them from their
vicious habits. The experiment seemed
to answer very well for a timo, but snob
is the perversity of human nature, pea
pie got accustomed to the infliction, and,
so far from having any dread of ex?
posure, actually seomod to take a pride
in tho notoriety thus obtained. In fact,
many wore to bo found far moro ready
to give their full names and histories
than the magistrates were to hear them.
The progress of luxury is strikingly
illustrated in a modern sea voyage
letter written from on board an Atlantic
steamship says: "I hear the notes of a
Eiano, the lowing of a oow, tho caoklo of
ans, indeed all the noises of the barn
yard, here in m id-o o a an."

A most amusing incident occurred at a
political meeting, held in the interests of
the Bolters, at Union, a few dayB ago.
Corbin was speaking, and was reading
the list of names of the HOBOS brnnoh of
the Mooney family, who drew money
upon fraudulent pay certificates. Said
the speaker: "Fellow-citizens, I will
read you the names, and if you know
any of thom, I hopo you will say so, for
as yet I have beon nimbin to meet a
bingle individual who oan spot one of
thom. They are fictitious oharaotors
names trumped up morely to uso in
stealing the poople'a monoy! Who of
y*ou," said Mr. Corbin, "knows Etnmin
ger, who Markie, who Williams?" and so
on through the list until ho came to the
name of P. Haggerty. "Holdl" cried
an Irish voioe in tho crowd, much to the
speaker's discomfiture; ''it's mo' that
knows Pat. Haggerty." "Well," said
Mr. Corbin, mach ohopfalleu, "what do
you know about Pat. Haggerty?" "Bo
jubers!" retorted the Irishman, "do I
not know Pat. Haggerty like a brither?
He lives in County Antrim, in tho ould
cuu u th ry, and, faith I he's not como over
yet." Tho laugh that followed was long
?iud loud. It would neem from this that
the fraudulent pay certificates wcro
meant as a bounty to emigration.

Our reuden? will lind iu tho despatches
at the head of this column the dotails,
so fur as they lin ve come to hand at this
writing, of the lost attack upon thu Hon.
Josiah Turner, Jr. The act of blowing
np with powdar a building iu the heart
of a populous oity, at that most defence?
less of all hours, tho hour of midnight,
and for no conceivable reason, save that
it contained the press and fixtures for the
publication of a political newspaper, is
an act that it is difficult to find words to
characterize ia any beooming munncr.
Acts like that now under consideration,
in their baro recital, are more than
enough to loose a d^vil that cannot easily
be chained again. ,tlen cannot contem?
plate a deed so diabolical and so fiendish
without iustiuotively foeliug the strong?
est desire for retaliation, for vengeance
and for protection. Since the world be?
gan, mea never have been subjected tc
Baoh outrages without seeking, io some
shape or other, both veogeauoe and pro?
tection, and they never will. Bat, ai
diabolical as was this act, it is not the
greatest outrage that has been inflicted,
or sought to be inflicted, upon Mr

into from a window.
But little more than two yours ago, 01
the night of the 13th of July, 1870, an
other attempt was made to assassinati
Mrs. Turner. On that occasion, th
would-be assassin was so dose to Mrs
Taraer that the powder from his pisto
baraed her face.
On the 5th of August of that sam
year, Mr. Turaer was arrested by orde
of Qoveraor Holeleo, by a military force
without any warrant of law whatever

M?DICAL BUBBLES.-Columns would
be required to enumerate the medical
bubbles that have risen to the surface
and burst since Hostetter's Stomach
Bitters became the standard tonic of the
Western Hemisphere. Boasts the most
extravagant, fabrications the most pre?
posterous, cant the most sickening, have
in turn beeu employed to bolster up the
worthless preparations that have from
time to time been introduced, in the
hopo of dividing the field with that
famous vegetable remedy. Signal failure
has beeu the lot of each and all. The
reputation of tho Bitters as a preventive
of epidemics, a stomachic, an in vigoran t,
a general restorative, and a specific for
indigestion, bilious affections, rheuma?
tism, nervous debility, constitutional
weakness, paroxysmal fevers, and all
complaints to which the more sensitive
Bex are exclusively liable, is established
upon the sound basis of more than twen?
ty years' experience, and can no more be
shaken by tho clap-trap nostrums of un?
scientific pretenders than the everlasting
hills by the winds that rustle through
their defilep. O 13 fJ3
