The past two weeks will pass into
liintory as the hottest weather experi
enced in many years. In the large
cities hundreds of people have died
from " .sunstroke," some of them in
bed, iu the middle of the night. The
cold wave from Manitoba is hourly ex
pected. The grand ovation given in Iondon
to lieaconstied and .Salisbury is one of
the noticeable events of the present
week. Krigland rings with their
-praises, for the great diplomatic victo
ry gained at Berlin. The speech of
CtortschakolFin the Congress almost
makes one sympathize with him in
Ida defeat. He reiterates what he
said at the beginning of the Turkish
war that it was waged in the interest
of Christianity and humanity, against
Islam ism and inhumanity.
Mr. Henry 1'. Fowlkcs, of Franklin,
was in town recently, attending the
meeting of the Congressional Kxecu-
tive Committee, and seeing friends and
relatives. Mr. Fowlkcs is sjKken o
ns a candidate for Floater to represent
the district composed of "Williamson
and Maury. According to the old
compact ljetwcen the counties, "Wilt
liamson is entitled to the Floater this
time, and we know of no one who
would lie more acceptable to the peo
ple of Maury than Mr. Fowlkes. He
is a native of this county, and has a
host of friends here. He is a young
man of brilliant promise, and an elo
quent and gifted orator. We lielieve
he will have no opposition, so un i ver

We announce to-day, Hon. W. C.
Wiu'thorne, as a candidate for re
election to Congress, subject to the
action of the Congressional Conven
tion. His past services all speak trum
pet tongued for bis return. The New
York Sun says the only way in which
a State can have power in Congress is
to send a man of intellect there, fi7
.(tpliinitlt'i-r. Intellect without in
fluence will not give power. The
ilKjAi.i is a Democratic paper, and
ivill support the nominee, but we feel
it our duty to say that the interests of
the people, and of the party, and of
the whole couutry demand his return
to Congress. His opponents are young
men politically speaking who can
iil'ord to wait; but either of them will
ret our cordial suniiort if he gets the
Southern papers are very severe on
Jell'ersoii Davis for his recent very
foolish snecch in Mississippi. In that
HjMX-ch he claimed to speak for hunt-elf
alone, and with this reservation
proceeded to utter some line senti
ments for Republican campaign docu
ments. Mr. Davis is really the worst
enemy the South now has, for his
peculiar position gives him great imw-
Ct for harm. He has not been in sym.
i.;iv with his people since the war,
and yet b'a utterances, from
lime, have bCIl Used with
elici t against theni. Those who charge
him with U'ing 1m night are either un
just or have an entire misconception
of his character. He is acting from
his own highest convictions of duty
and principle. We Mipiww the South
will have to endure the cllect of his
mania until he dies.
Hon. John M. Fleming, of Kuox
ville, was iu Columbia a few hours
this week. 1 le is a candidate forO'ov
vrnor, subject to the Stale Democratic
Convention. He is in tine health anil
looking well. Col. Fleming is one of
the ablest men in flic Slate, and on all
political questions be occupies as und,
othodox IVmocratie position. He is
in favor of such a settlement of the
State debt as will be just to the credi
tors of the State, and, at the same
time consistent with the ability of the
eople to pay, and at as early a day as
is practicable. Col. Fleming has many
waim friends iu Maury, who would
gladly support him if be receives the
nomination. He is able to make a
vigorous and successful campaign, anil
if he is nominated, bis canvass will be
ne of the most brilliant our State has
witnessed in years.

the coutrjr of Rlouut, renowned during
and since the war a3 Loyal RIount.
This couuty is situated in the midst ol
the great illicit whiskey distilling dis
trict aud is widely known as contain
ing the most desjierate and brutal out
laws ever engaged iu that traffic.
Scarcely a week passes without a mur
der or homicide, bushwhacking be
ing resorted to with as much frequen
cy as during the most turbulent times
of the war. Last Friday the most de
liberate and unprovoked murder ever
committed was perpetrated in tue low
er end of the county, which will bet
ter illustrate than words the spirit ot
lawlessness prevailing among a cer
tain class ot its inhabitants, the par
ticulars as iriven to an Atitcrivon re
porter last evening, are as follows:
A certain John Ltikey, who has lieen
known in the community as a liar
woikimr hut'uiiintelliireut farm hand
iriven at times to drinking, visited the
house of a family of the name of Hall,
which family consisted of a brother
totally bliud, a sister nearly so, am
the victim who was both partly blind
and half-witted. While at the house
ot the Halls Iikey counterfeitin
drunkenness, drew a derringer pistol
from his pocket and pointed it at the
younger Hall, at the same time iau
inir the hand of the halt-blind sister
of his intended victim and placing
on the trigger, requesting her to pull
it, that he might see whether it wouk
shoot or not. Hall sat all unconscious ot
his danger, but the girl suspected some
design, refused to do as he requested
and inloiiued her brother of what wa
traii-piriug, whereupon Lakey pretend
ed unconscious drunkenness, and pres
ently requested Hall to go with him
home. Hall asseeted and started with
him, and shortly overtook a couple o
young men, who lourneved in compa
ny with them a short wavs, when
Lakey fired his pistol iu the air to se
if the horses would scare, as he said
He then feigned sickness and lay
down, Hall holding his head. Pro
fessing the greatest friendship for HalL
and receiving assurance of the same
feeling from the man he was about to
murder, ! coolly put his hand in one
lMH-ket and drew his pistol an 1 took
a cartridge from another, and delilier
ately fitted it in the pistol, and then
placing it to the head of his blind and
unsuspecting victim, tired, blowing ou

three hundred regulars. Aftera march
of alout six miles, and within a short
distance of Cay use station, he encoun
tered between 4M) and 5HU warriors.
This was alsiut S o'clock iu the morn
ing. (Jetting the men into position,
Col. Ames ojenei nre on the hostile
who returned it, but without eflect,
neither side sustaining any injury .
This was continued without intermi.-
slou until 12 o'clock, when the Indi
ans attempted to charge Miles' lines,
but were driven oft, the redskins be
ing unable to stand the lire from the
howitzer. In the charge the Indians
sustained considerable loss, those pres
cut estimating their dead at fifteen.
Miles' casualties were two men woun
ded, one iu the arm, and one in the
leg. shortly after I o'clock the In
dians fell liack to Woods's mountains,
This is the first time during this cam
paign that the hostiles have attempted
to charge, and snows that they are
driven to desperation. During the
whole light they shot wild. Miles'
object, iu view of the overwhelming
numbers against him, was to prevent
tne advance oi the hostiles, and if pos
sible to noid mem m check tut re-en
forced. This he did, although h
force was afoot, and the savages well
mounted. During Friday the Indians
completed the destruction of Cay use
station, wnicn on the day previous
they had partially destroyed. It is
fcaiV3iJ that Meacbam's has met a sim
ilar fate. Aqmngthe interested spec
tators of Miles' fight were a large num
ber of Umatilla.', whp look tides with
neither party, but appeared Ui relish

young man belonging to this tribe,
iu 4 r Wenapfciioot, haye j :ied lie

young warriors have passed Ijeyond
his control. At ten o'clock this inorn
ing Col. Forsyilu; wjtl) hjs command
was at Weston, having lieeu ordered
to the scene of yesterday's conflict,
and was moving as rapidly as his
horses could travel. The forces now
in the Umatilla country amount to
seven hundred men, and it is thought

Washington, July 9, 1878.
A Congressional investigation it has
often been said, is a pretty sure way
to cover up the particular wrong in
vestigated and make the public tired
of the subject. The work of the Pot
ter committee is-not an exception to
this rule The committee has exam
ined a large number of witnesses; it
has,, as your- correspondent will en
deavor to show, developed some Im
portant facts; but unless a careful
analysis of what it has brought out is
made when it completes its labors the
people will get but a partial and con
fused knowledge of the results. Par
tisan journals, if they are republicans,
of course, belittle the result of the In
quiry, whUe the democratic organs
have been too ready to magnify re
sults when they were but half estab
tablished, aud these bave in fact
helped the republican organs to mud
dle the public mind. In what follows
an attempt Is made to present briefly
what has really been established by
the evidence before the committee.
1. The Presidential election could
only be carried for Mx. Hayes by coun
ting nls electors fn botn tne btates of
In Florida the Canvassing Board as
sumed without warrant ot law to ex
ercise discretionary powers and to al
ter the results appearing upon the re
turns. This the courts have since de
cided to be unlawful, and their deter
minations have been that in that State
at least Tilden, and not Hayes, was
elected upon the votes returned.
2. Testimony taken in Florida and
in Washington shows that in respect
to the votes returned there were the
grossest frauds. It is established on
unimpeached testimony that in Raker
county the , canvassers first counted
one or two disputed returns aud later
discarded the return they had once
counted and counted the return from
that county they had previously re
jected for no reason extent to make
the figures come out for Mr. Hayes.
In Alachua county it is shown that
the election officers brought the re
turns to Mr. Dennis, Chairman of the
Republican County Committee, and
upon his upbraiding them with the
showing thvy proceeded in his house
to add 21!) fictitious names and as
many fictitious republican votes to the
returns. This was the county in Mr.
Noyes' charge, and it .Is established
that when he proposed to call .Denuis
as a witness about these returns Den
nis told him he would rum the repub
lican case, and must not be required
to testify, and he was, accordingly.
not required to do so. True, Noyes
says that it was not because of fear to
the cause, but of fear for Dennis iht-
sonally, that he did not call him. So
Dennis says that just before the can
vassers were fc take action he beard
there was a bargain with Rarlow, the
republican manager, by which the
tate was to be counted tor Haves and
Drewand he went in the morning be
fore they were up to the room occupied
by Noyes anil Wallace aud told them
that the republicans wouldn't submit
to this, and the State had to lie count
ed either for Hayes and Sterns or Til
den and Drew, and Noyes and Wal
lace thought so much of this they irot
straight out of bed and went and d is
missed Rarlow. This Noves explained
by saying he did not want Dennis dis
satisfied. McLin, one of the State
canvassers, says they canvassed the
returns under positive assurances of
reward, which Noyes denies but it is
understood Wallace admits.

Rut in this connection it is most sig
nificant that every one connected with
the Florida frauds got office. Noyes
was made Minister to France. Kasson
Minister to Austria, McLiu Justice' of

the Supervising Architect's otlice,
where fie had nothing to do but draw-

who tooK the affidavits in Alachua
was made a postmaster. Black and
Vance, the canvassers there, went one
into the Treasury and the other into
the Post Office. Howell, who was
clerk of Raker couuty, was made Col
lector ol l ustoms. ifowles, who was
election officer in Leon county, where
the democrats claimed there was a
fraud of seventy-four votes, went into
the Treasury. Rell, another County
Judge in a contested count, was made
a timber agent. Humphreys,, one of
the electors, was made Collector of
PeHsacola. Ieons, Sterns' secretary,
was put into the Treasury. Maxwell,
a republican detective, was made a
lieutenant in the army. Phelps went
to Paris with McCormick. arnum,
one of Sterns' Cabinet liecame a Re

3. In liouisiana the election substan
tially depended uiion the ivarishes of
East aud W est Feliciana. No protest
oy tne precinct omcers accompanied
their returns. The republican mana
gers claimed that where it would have
lieen dangerous on the spot to make
protests they should be received after
the returns were sent up. This su
gestiou, of course, opened the way for
every form of fraud. In those two
parishes Anderson and Weber, two
custom iiouse cierKs, were supervi
sors of registration. They both made
protests m New Orleans, or parts of
proies's. 11 :s said now that these
men are worthless liars, but they
were at the critical moment in the
canvass of the votes the trusted agents
of the republican party in that work,
and upon them stood the exclusion of
those parishes. Now please take no
tice how the evidence before the com
mittee coroborates Anderson's confes
sion, particularly that of Campbell.
the district attorney, brought by Sec
retary Sherman all the way from Da
kota to contradict Anderson. Accor
ding to Campbell's statement Ander
son prepared a paper for protest.
W hether he did it voluntarilv. as Pit
kin says, or at the request of Pitkin
as Anderson says, is of no conse
quence. Any way the protest was
prepared by Anderson, and the last
known of it was sent by Pitkin to Mr.
Conklin. Rut Campbell declared be
fore the committee that this protest
was wholly worthless and contained
no statement of facts of any value up

er, and nothing appears to the1' con
trary. It is Insisted that E. L. Weber Is a
bar because he now admits the twin
die about his parish, and yet wrote the
letter he dkl just before Packard's gov
ernment fell. . That letter is really a
corroboration. of his present story. It
is just the letter which a reckless and
excited man, believing some rumor
about his brotner's death which he
had just heard, and anxious to sustain
the Packard government, would write
to fire the Northern heart. How ut
terly and preposterously groundless
and false it was he in the light of bet
ter information admits. He was not
driven out; Don Weber's family was
not driven out. They did not sacrifice
their property, and they have re
mained there undisturbed until this
day, although the NicboILs govern
ment was established, which they so
much pretended to dread. That letter
in the light of subsequent facts is an
illustration of the utter falseness of the
whole bulldozing pretence.
West Feliciana had twelve white
people in it, republicans, and among
those twelve the office rotated, and
nothing could be more profitable than
for them to cry out year after year
against the danger of democratic as
cendancy. It now appears that the
danger to w hich Anderson and Weber
were exposed was that of losing . their
offices if the democrats came in.

4. As regards the Sherman letter
Mrs. Jenks is brought forward to ac
quit the Secretary, and how does she
acquit him? By declaring that every
thing except the writing of the letter
with which he has been charged is
true; that he assured and promised
Anderson and Weber, as claimed,
that he wanted them to stand firm,
and promised them protection and
rewartl; that, not satisfied with his
oral promises, Anderson wanted writ
ten assurances, and that, having pre
pared a letter to that end, he sent it
ny Weber, who gave it to her to cur
ry in. Having read it, she says -she
conceived that they ought to be satis
fied with the oral assurances of so dis
tinguished a representative of the re
publican party, and thereupon, to
quiet them, she dictated, with the help
of a republican official in New Orleans,
a reply which should pass oft' as Sher
man's. No one who ever read this
reply believes that it was her produc
tion. But even if it were, it siill re
mains that all the assurances of aid
and comfort which Mr. Sherman is
charged with having given to the con
spiracy are substantiated by the wo
man, brought forward to acquit Sher
man of the letter, which, after all, is
only one item of evidence to sustain
the fact of his action to which she has
5. Without either Anderson's evi
dence or E. L. Weber's, the conspira
cy to count out the Felicianas under
pretence ot violence tliat never exis
ted, is made put, and the probable
cause which apiears for assuming that
this action was the result of promises
and protection from the visiting states
men is strengthened by the fact that
in Louisiana, as well as in Florida
everylnidy that was connected with
the fraud is in office. The list is too
long to give here. It reaches from the
Ik-turning Board to Mrs. Jen ks' broth
er. No guilty man escapes.

(i. As to the forged electoral returns.
The constitution requires separate
votes to Le cast for President and Vice
President, and different certifications
to lie made of those votes. Rut in
Louisiana the electors voted for tioth
oflicers iu one ballot and embraced the
return in one certificate. The demo
crats claim this was constitutionally
defective, ai:d that neither Congress
nor any other tribunal would have
counted the vote of a State thus certi
fied had tlie fact appeared, aud that
by Some arrangement it did not ap
jiear. Whether the difficulty be so
serious as this or not it is at least time
that the republicans regarded it as
most important, for they opened the
returns in Washington, sent them
back to New ( irleans and required a
new set; and when the new set made
in Christmas week, but dated back to
the nth of Decern lier came to lie
signed some of the electors were not to
lie found and their names were torged.
It has lieen commonly reorted that
it was a duplicate of the first set to
which the names were forged, but this
is is an entire mistake, it was the
second set, erfect in form, to which
the names of the electors were forged.
Reyond this anything can be tie
lieved of officials who would furnish
forged wipers of such solemnity and
Importance. The facility with which
the names of the absent electors were
supplied indicates how lightly they
wiaild regard the conspiracy to throw
overboard the Felicianas, and with
what praise they must have welcomed
Anderson's suggestion to withhold
republican votes to afford a pretence
for claiming intimidation and exclu
ding the. votes of those larislies.
And here, again, we find every one
connected with these forged returns in
office. Kellogg is made Senator, Tom
Anderson is made a Collector of Cus
toms, Marks Tax Collector, Rrewster
Surveyor tieneral, Clark is put in the
Treasury, Hill made storekeejier, and
now not one of them knows how these
returns were forged.

A Scene in the Berlin Congress Gort-
schakoff on Russia's Sacrifices.
Berlin Correspondence of the London Times,
At the lieginning of yesterday's sit
ting there wasa really interesting scene
which deserves to lie noticed. Prince
(jrortsehakofl', detained iu his bed by
gout, has not lieen able to attend the
last sittings. At yesterday's meeting
became iu his carriage, which stopped
at the entrance, whence the Prince
was carried to the door of the council
room, when everyone hastened round
him to congratulate him on the resto
ration of his health. Soon af
terward, Prince Bismarck declared the
sitting opened. Prince (Jortshakeoff
then licgged permission to speak, seat
ed, he rose with apparent effort, and,
amid profound and resiectful silence,
said: "Mr. President and your Excel
lencies: After.having b .t'ii kept away
for severaldaysfrom your deliberations,
I do not like to reapiiear among you
without i making the followiinr
remarks, which are prompted by the

ring your late deliberations my col
leages (the Prince here bowed toward
M. d'Oubril and Count Schouvaloh")
have granted you, in the name of
Russia, concessions far surpassing
those she thought of making."
On hearing this all the memliers of
the congress evinced signs of appre
hension. The aged Piince soke
with ellbrt in a trembling voice, hold
ing firmly to thetable and looking be
fore him with a resolute axpressjon,
and his auditors liegan to wonder
whether bis words were not the pre

concessions Russia had made, and
whether it wan not to make this declar

extreme fatigue imposed on him by
his presence m the congress. Happilv.

with a promise that he would abstain
as far as possible from drink, he was
