THE PROCLAIMED LEA.UE.
The Government's Action Loudly Denounced.
Louoix, August 2:.-A meeting to de
nounce the government's course was held
in the rotunda this evening. An immense
crowd was present and great enthusiasm
was manifested. The Lord Mayor rre
sided. There were also two overilow meet
ings, at which Edmund Leamy and T. P.
Gill, M. P., presided. There were present
several English and Scotch members of
Parliament. including Jacob Bright, Cobb.
Sutherland: Fenwick and Haldane. The
building was full an hour before the meet
ing was opened. Many persons got in
through the windows. Prof. Galbraith,
Protestant, moved the resolution denounc
ing the edict against the League. which
was unanimously carried.
Lord Hartington did not know that the
governmentintended to proclaim the Lengoe
until after the decision had been reached.
As soon as he learned of the government's
intention he sent a strong remonstrance to
Lord Salisbury. Lord Hartington believes
the.proclamation ill advised and unneces

returns upon which the proelamettion was
issued and he failed to find any mention (.f

would submit evidence ipon which the
House would be enabled t: discharge ,:s
duty under the statute. ani decide whether
the proclamation dec'aring the League

LoxDoor, August 24.-The Meus this
-morning says the meeting at the Rotunda
inDbnlast night mat-ks on epoch in the
history of England and Ireland. The at
*tendance of English members of Parliament
is emphatic testimony that a real union has
at length been achieved by the most illus
trious of English statesmen.
Yesterday afternoon a Corautu tion re
porter met a group of colored men,. women
and children near the car-shed. They con
stituite a part of a gang of emigrants that
left Fairfield and Laurens counties, S. C..
*about eight months since, to try their luck
in Arkansa. Alex. Darby and John
Lykes, the leaders of tne party, talked
-freely about their experience.' Said Darby:
"We went West with the idea that we
would better our condition. I was prom
ised two dollars a day to do railroad work.
When I got to Little Rock 1 found that I
would get ornly one dollar a day. I soon
found that things were much higher in Ar
kanas than in South Carolina. and the
folks much meaner. The immigrant agent
that made such brash promises to us didn't
keep his promises. We found that the sit
uation was gloomier than tae one we left
behind us, and 1 got some of my old
friends together and induced them to re
turn to their home in old South Carolina."
Darby went on to tell about the hardships
to which his party had been subjected, and
told about a disease which had decimated
their ranks. He is heartily sick of the
West, and declares that for the remainder
of his life he will be satisfied to dwell in
South Carolina, where he was born and
raised. Many others who went to Arkansas
are anxious to get back, Darby says, but
they haven't the means. He believes that
the exodus of negroes Westward will not
again assume large proportions.-..:1tat

consistent with demands for a repeal of th

the Blair education bill because the oppt
si:io of Mr. Cleveland to the first, and Ii
lack of indorsement of the second ar
known of ali men, and further, the Roi
oke uterances upon these -ubjects are i
opp )' n to the general policy of th
Dentoer ic party. On the other ilan

In re::ard to the State debt the addres
says that all that has ever been done toward
its settlement, that has been of pr.actier
valie, was done w.hile the Repuiblicanscoi
troled the Statec. and all efforts of the D~el
oracy since they have been in power hav
tended to unsettle and undo what was at
coplihed by the Republicans, and th
reslt is that the finances of the State ar
in a hopeless muddle. It also charges th
Democracy with extravagance and mit
management in the administration of get
eral atiairs. It throws cold water upon th
suggestion of federal aid in the debt settl<
met. As to the promised aid for disable
soldiers and their widows, it say.s the R<
putlican party will cheerfully unitei
ever'. such effort in the future, as it hasi
the past, but it warns the people of Virgini
that if the party now in power is allowe
to remain in control its incompetency an
misnanagement will leave no revenue
be appropriated for the relief of soldiet
and their widows.
Touching the denunciation of the surplu
in the Treasury, the people of Virginia at
reminded that an aecum'ulation of this sui
plus was the leading count in the Demo<
racv s indictment of thec Republicans in th
canpaign of 1884, and some further apoit
gis and explanations, it says, will doubi
less be called for from the Demtocrati
leaders as to why this surplus is so muc:
arer now under a Democratic adm'inistrn
tion than it was three years ago. A .m

"HOLD YOUR GROUND"
The Last Order Given by General Stonewall
(st. Nichiolas for Arigust.)
After nightfall Stonewall Jackson rode
ofl with his staff to reconnoiter in fron
of the line he had gainei. It wa bis
idea to stretch completely around in the
rear of Hooker and cut him off from the!
The night was dark and Jackson soou
came upon the Union lines. Their in
fantry drove him back, and as lie re
turned in the darkness his own soldierS
began firing at their commander, of
course mistaking his party for the
enemy. Jackson was shot in the handl
and wrist and in the nppxr arm at the
same time. His horse turned and the
General lost his hold of the )rial ren;
his cap was brushed from his head oy
the branches; he reeled and was caught
in the arms of an oflicer. After a mo
ment he was assisted to dismount. his
wound was examined and a litter was
brought. Just then the Union artillery
opened again, and a murderous fire
came down upon the party through the
woods and the darkness. One of the
litter bearers stumbled and fell, and the
others were frightened: they laid the
litter down on the ground, the furiou1s
storm of shot and shell sweeping over
them like hail. Jackson attempted to
rise, but his aide-de-camp held him down
till the tempest of fire was lulled. Tbn
the wounded General was helped to rise,
and Valked a few steps in the forest;
but he became faint, and was laid again
on the litter. Once he rolled to the
ground, when an assistant was shot, and
the litter fell. Just then General Pender,
one of his subordinates, passed. He
stopped and said:
"I hope you are not seriously hurt,
General. I fear I shall have to retire my
troops, they are so much brokeik"
But Jackson looked up at once and
"You must hold your ground, General
Pender; you must hold your ground,
This was the last order he ever gave.
He was borne some distance to the near
est house and examined by the surgeon;
and after midnight his left arm was am
putated at the shoulder.
When Lee was told that his most
trasted lieutenant had been wounded, he
was greatly distressed, for the relations
between them were almost tender.
"Jackson has lost his left arm," said
Lee, "but I have lost my right arm."
The Cunning Liliputians Living in the
- Heart of Africa.
(From the San Francisco Examiner.)
Ronzo de Leo, who traveled =.any
years in Africa with Dr. Living-tone,
was one who almost stood out alone in
the assertion that a race of dwarfs lived
in Central Africa. In his lectures in
America he told of a little people who
fled to the clefts of the rocks when the
explorers approached. C. Eugene Wolff,
who traveled many years with Stanley,
and who is now in the city, gives some
queer accounts of these dwarfs. "On
the southern branches of the Congo,"
said he to an Examiner reporter, "I
have seen whole villages of these Lilipu
tians. They are a generous little people
who live in rude huts and clear ground,
engaging in varied sorts of agriculture.
They are also skilled hunters and they
make palm wine. They are as lithe and
supple in climbing trees as monkeys or
baboons, although they are physically as
perfect men as any of the giant tribes
thereabout, and they know as much.
The men are not over four feet and a
half high, while the women are a good
deal smaller. These tiny little men are
both brave and cunning. They are ex
perts with the bow and arrow, and
readily bring down the African bison,
antelope and even elephants with them.
As trappers of small animals they arc uin
surpassed. In a close pinch they use the
lance with astonishing dexterity, and an
ordinary sling in their hands is wielded
with wonderful skill. The dwarfs col
lect the sap of the palm, with which
they make soap. The men are smooth
faced and of a rich mahogany color,
while the hair is short, kinky and as
black as night. Tens of thousands of
them live on the south branch of the
Congo. They are an affable, kind
hearted people, of simple ways and de
void of vicious tendencies to a greater
degree than most semi-barbaric races.
The women are industrious and amiable.
Very queer those people look alongside
the great swarthy blacks further up on
the Congo. The latter are o f prodigious
size, uncouth, rude to the remotest de
gree and cannibalistically inclined. The
dwarfs stand in awe of them, but are so
brave and cunning that, with all the
odds of physique against them, the pig
mies are masters of the situation."
A Noted Blockade Merchant.
Charles K. Prioleau has just died in
England, aged sixty-one years. Prioleau
was a resident partner in Liverpool of
the firm of Frazer, Trernholm & Co., who
were largely interested in blockade ran
ning the during war of rebellion and was
known as the friend of the Confederacy.
Early in the war he fitted out a steam
ship and loaded it with one Whitworthi
riflod gun, two Blakely rifled guns, the
largest piece of ordnance in the world
at that time, and a lot of Entield rities
and ammunition and presented them to
the Confederate government. The
steamer was known as the Sumter, and
ran through the blockading ileet into
the port of Wilmington, N. C., in broad
daylight and landed her stores. The
Whitworth gun was used in the carlyv
battles of Virginia and did great execu
tion, its range being greater than any
guns in the United States. The Blakely
guns were mounted in the city of
Charleston during the siege, but never
fired a shot at the besiegers. They were,
blown up at the evacuation. The Enfleld
rifles sent by him were the first ever
used by the Confederates. Priolean was~
also on board the yacht Deerhound duir
ing the fight between the Alabama and
Kearsarge, off Cherbourg, and which
rescued the Alabama's crew after the
sinking of the vessel-New York Sun.

A NA MELESS CASE.
MIv case has been a very curious one
for DboUt thir-tC-n years. At interals of
about Une week I would beattacked with
spells of severe and most excruciating
pain, always commencing in the region
of my kidneys. The pain would then go
upwards and aifeCt my body and head,
and seemed to penetrate my very eye
balls, creatirg the most intense suffering,
lasting about eight hours each spell.
I resorted to all kinds of mediciuc
ithout benefit. Several doctois treated
my case, but none gave relief. I finally
used B. B. B. as an experiment, and tc
my utter astonishment all pain and suf
fering vanished after using three doses.
To the present time I have used three
bottles, and not a pain has ever return
ed. I do not know what was the matter,
neither could my physician name the
complaint. The B. B. B. acted finely
and powerfully upon my kidneys; ray
appetite has been splendid and my con
stitution built up rapidly.

comparatively blind. Have been treated
by em-inent physicians of diXroreni
schools without a cur. I have taker
five botiles of B. B. B. (mad.Le at Alanta,
