E. B. MUKRAY, Editor. THURSDAY MORNING, AUG. 14, 1879. The Nihilists are giving to Russia con? siderable trouble, and unless Russia changes the inhuman treatment of these misguided fanatics ?she will array the civilized world against her and create a sympathy for those she' would crush. The organization of the Nihilists seems to be secret and powerful, and the right of Russia to adopt adequate measures to suppress it must be conceded, yet, in the execution of those measures, humanity demands that she should not inhumanly torture these miserable people. M0RM0SIS3L The Mormon question has now become one of international importance* In a Cabinet meeting held on the 8th inst., the Secretary of State presented for con? sideration a letter protesting against the conduct of European governments in al? lowing their subjects to leave for the United States as Mormon emigrants, which letter was approved by the Cabi? net, and copies were Bent to the diplo? matic representatives of the United States at the Courts of Great Britain, Germany, Norway, Sweden and Den? mark. It is understood that the letter sets forth that bigamy is a crime in the Territories of the United States, punish-' able by fine and imprisonment, and that the penalties of the law will be enforced. It is to be hoped that the action taken by the government will in the future pre? vent emigrants of this kind from coming to this country, and the enforcement of the Act of Congress in the Territories will settle forever this festering social question. Should emigrants still persist in coming to this country, it is the in? tention of the government to refuse them entrance into our our ports and to forbid vessels landing them. THE COITON CBOP. Reports from the Boards of Exchange of the States of Virginia, North Caro? lina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas and Arkansas, are favorable to the pro? ductiveness of the crop of the present year, equaling, if not exceeding, that of the last. The crop everywhere is repre? sented as formic g, blooming and boiling well; and although the plant is generally reported as smaller than last year, owing to the July drought, yet the crop com? pares favorably with that of lust year, in many instances is better. The drought during the month of June and July en? abled the farmers to keep their entire crops in good cultivation; hence there has been very little, if any, abandon? ment, and no damage of consequence to them by the boll-worm or caterpillar. In some localities of the South the crop is earlier than usual, owing to the dry hot weather, while in other sections it is ' from eight to twelve days later. The apprehended danger of shedding from heavy rains has not been real zed, and the prospect for an abundant harvest is at present most promising. There is, therefore, no reason to believe that cot? ton will command a high price this Fall from a diminished production of the ?taple. _ SOUTH CAROLINA SEWS. Gleanings Crom oar State Exchanges.

An Incendiary Fire in Laurens County.?The Columbia Register of the 12th inst. has the following communica? tions: It is reported in this village that the stables and barn of Mr. James Epps, of Laurens County, were consumed day before yesterday by fire. Four mules, one horse and several calves were de Btroyed. Mr. Epps lives near Maddox's bridge. The statements about the burn? ing are very conflicting, but it was evi? dently the work of an incendiary. Sus? picion rests upon a young negro boy named Sam Mattison, who lormerly lived here and who is regarded as a mean fel? low. The latest news is that he has con? fessed, implicating another negro, and that he bos gone to jail. There was strong talk of lynching him, but I hope that there is nothing of this. Surely our good people are more law-abiding than this. We have courts of justice, and be? fore these every man should have a fair and impartial trial. ? Gains. Donaldsville, Aug. 8,1879. another account. Honea Path, S. C, Aug. 9,1879. Editor Register : Mr. James Epps, who lives about ten miles east of tnis place, in Laurens County, lost his barn ou the night of the 6th instant, by an in? cendiary fire. Four mules, one horse, five calves and one hundred chickens were burned. A colored boy named Sam Mattison has been arrested, and has con? fessed that he did the burning. He tied the mules together to keep them from being saved. He also confesses to have burned 200 bales of cotton last winter, which is supposed to have been the lot burnt at Newberry on the Greenville and Columbia Railroad. It is rumored that he also admitted that he had burned some house in Abbeville County. Filius Deloris. A Miracle in Georgia.?William Langley, a cotton planter, of Gwinnett County, was standing in0 a field on his farm. Around him were several men, a woman and three children, all breaking the soil for cotton. The sky was clear and the air quiet, there being about both a hint of sultriness. The children had just stopped work and thrown themselves, tired as tired could be, on the top of a pile of guano sacks, when a peculiar roaring was beard in the field. The sound Dore some resemblance to that of an approaching train, but as no railroads were near, the workers looked at one an? other in amazement. In a moment they saw a small column not larger in circum? ference than a barrel skim rapidly along the ground. The wind column or spout appeared to bo filled with dust, and in the centre contained what looked like a ball of fire. The mother rushed towards the children, who crouched low in fright, but before she could reach them the pile of guano bags, children and all, were scattered right and left. In its course, al? ways eccentric, the column struck a stump fairly from butt to roots and tore it from the ground, the wood splitting into three pieces, and dropping twenty or thirty yards away. Mr. Langley was sucked in as the whirling thing bolted by and throwu into a ploughed gully some dis? tance away. In the next instant the strange visitor had gone, passing up ever the tops of the trees. It was seen plainly by tho ladies at the Langley House, ap? pearing to them like the smoke that rub? es up in circular volumes from the smoke stick of a locomotive.?Augusta Evening Newt, THE SOUTH CAROLINA RADICALS The National Itudlcnlx, Forccufttlng a l)c in South Carolina, Preparing t Show a Largo Decrease in Population A Bait thrown Out for Disaffected Dem ocrats to Put Up an "Independent' Ticker, CorrcponJcnt of the Xav Yurk Timct. Greenville, S. C, August 2. The condition of the Republican party in South Carolina is deplorable. Tue leaders, with few exceptions, are utterly dejected. Mauy who, in the palmy days of the Scott and Moses administrations, were reveling in luxury, are actually in want of the common necessaries of life j their worst enemy could not devise a worse fate than has befallen tbetn. The only members of the Central Executive Committee who still cling to the planks of the old ship are R. B. Elliott, 0. C. Bowen, E. W. M. Mackey, Thomas John? son, Dr. Ensor, Cochran and Wilson Cook; but even these few are divided by discords and jealousies which lessen their influence and usefulness. The masses, especially the colored portions, seem less despondent. They complain of the de? sertion of their leaders at a timo when they wcro most needed, but they are hopeful that wrong can never be more than temporary. During a recent tour through portions of the "State, a Times corrrespondeut sought the opinion of a number of the most prominent and trust? worthy Republican politicians regarding the talked-of reorganization of the party. They seemed anxious that their "tales of woe" should reacbrthe public, but, fearing annoyance and possibly prosecution, they begged in almost every instance that their names, unless specially demanded, should be withheld; One of the most intelligent colored men in the State, who Was one of the Hayes electors, and is at present a member of the State Executive Committee, and whose veracity is not doubted, even by Democrats, in the place where he resides, said: "We"?meaning the Executive Committee?"have had no formal meet? ings since last summer, when we refused to endorse the Hampton administration, but some of us have met an odd times and exchanged opinions regarding the duty of Republicans in the future. We have as yet no fixed plans when or how reorganization can be accomplished, but I am confident something will be done Bhortly. The colored people are, how? ever, not so entirely unprepared for an election an you may think. They have well-disciplined organizations in every county, which meet periodically and dis? cuss the situation. They ure also collect? ing funds for a last resort?emigration. If they are not permitted to enjoy the rights of citizenship peaceably in South Carolina, they will seek homes elsewhere; and the scenes recently witnessed in Mis? sissippi and Louisiana will be reproduced in this State on r. much larger scale and under more favorable auspices." Re? garding the conservative utterances of the Charleston News and Courier, he said: "Sweet words cost nothing. I was brought up among these people, and know them better than most men. I have been one of the leaders of my party since 1868, and I have not forgotten the lessons taught me two and fouryears ago. we will not be molested, but if we make efforts to regain what wo have lost, and there appears the slightest prospect of success, the 'red shirts' will hunt us down and shoot us as heretofore, and such journals as the News and Courier will si? lently acquiesce in the bloody work, while others more outspoken will laud it. See what the Kingstree Star says about Swails," [alluding to the following ex? tract from that paper:] "It is currently reported that Swails contemplates returning to Williamsburg County. If this be a fact, it is incum? bent upon the Executive Committee of the Democratic party to find out what is his purpose in returning. If it is to take up his permanent residence among us, it is their duty, as good citizens, to warn Swails that he will do so at his own per? sonal peril. The white people, if true to what has beeu pledged in their behalf, will not permit Swails to return here to live. If he proposes to come here to arrange his private affairs, so as to leave permanently, the Executive Committee should have him so state, in writing, giv? ing the exact time within which he will leave for good and beyond which he will not be allowed to stay. If he declines to state his purpose, the public should be made aware of the fact, and he will have been made aware of the fact that his res-' idence here v. ill be at personal risk, and his permanently remaining here will not be permitted by the whites of the county. If, after this he makes his appearance, he can take the consequences ol his past. From what we hear, he will likely nave a lively time, and be glad enough to re? tire to more quiet and profitable scenes. ' We do not see what induces him to re? turn, if, indeed, he intends doing so. His property is all in the hands of Sheriff Jacobs, by whose intervention alone it has been kept from being sold at public outcry long ago." "I was one of the Hayes electors," he continued, "and as such I stood in con? stant dread of assassination before we crossed the State line. According to the State laws, we were entitled to the same per diem and mileage a? the members of the Legislature, but we never received a copper. We employed lawyers and appealed to the Legislature, but, while they did not deny the legality of our election, they rejected our claim, and merely because we were Republicans. As Republicans we have no rights in this State. We can neither talk nor vote as we please. Our only hope rests in our Northern friends, and if they desert us, God knows how it will end ?I am afraid to think." Another of tho old colored leaders, who bears a good reputation for hones? ty and veracity, said: "Our only sal? vation lies in the election of either Grant, Sherman or Blaine. Grant is our man, and he is the most feared by the Democrats. I heard some of the latter say, a few days ago, that if Grant were nominated he would be elected, but they would kill him before he could reach the Presidential chair. They also said that they would sooner kill every nigger from the mountains to the seaboard than per? mit tho State to fall into the hands of the Republicans again. These assertions might have been made in jest, but they evidently had the desired effect. The aged ex-leader of his race seemed to be most thoroughly frightened, and he firm? ly believes that a total annihilation of his people will follow any attempt to wrest the State from the Democrats. A prominent member of the bar, and late aspirant for one of the principal Federal offices in the State, expressed views which may not be approved by many Republicans, but as he is consid? ered one of the best informed up-coun? try politicians, they are worthy of pe? rusal. He believes that the Republican party can never again achieve success, or even a partial success, under their old leaders, and that they must look to libe? ral Democrats to ro-orgauize their shat? tered ranks in the next contest. He be? lieves that available men, equal to the task, can be obtained after the next Democratic convention, which he thinks will be controlled by the worst elements in the party, and which he believes will nominate candidates unacceptable to the liberal Democracy, lie expressed him? self utterly disgusted with the men who still claim the authority to control the actions of Republicans in the State, and asserted that they c'o not represent either the intelligence or the honesty of the party. "Think," said he "of a set of del? egates to represent us in the next nation? al convention who are chosen through the instrumentality of such men as R. B. Elliott! Could't they be bought by any? body? We must wait," he continued, "until opportunities favor us. Nothing can bo gained by ill-considered haste, and So loi keep in the background much may be lost. Republican triumphs in New York and Ohio this fall will in? fuse new life into the Republicans iu the Southern States, and kind words from our Northern and Western friends will restore confidence.'' Another member of the legal fraternity who at one time exercised much influence among up-country Republicans, 6aid: "If I thought we had the slightest prospect of success, I would pull ofl my coat and start in, but I can't see what good I could accomplish in my own behalf of for any? body else. The Democrats have every? thing their way; they arc in possession of all the election machinery, and how can we stop the ballot brigandage, or bow can we prevent the hordes of 'red shirts' from voting at every polling pre? cinct in the county on election day when their managers allow it? It is only surprising to me that they do not go one step further and abolish elections alto? gether. I labored foil the Republican party until I was almost ruined finan? cially. My practice, which is gradually coming back to me siucc I minded my own business only, was taken from me, and old college friends would pass me by without recognition. Everybody knew we carried the election in 1876, and yet our Northern friends deserted tin and consigned ub to the tender mercies of our enemies. No, thank you! I have enough for the present."^ The United States District Attorney was busily engaged at his office prepar? ing cases for the United States District Court, to be held at Greenville on the last Monday in August. He expressed his views without the least reserve. "I believe that the Federal administration will enforce an honest vote in 1880, and I am confident if the vote is honestly counted, that the Republican Electors Will be declared elected. Should chi? canery prevail, however, I am equally confident that the Republican nominees for President and Vice President will be elected without our assistance. I believe that Ohio and Maine will go Republican this fall, the former by at least 10,000 majority, which will give us new strength. I believe wo will have a working majori? ty in the next House of Representatives, and I further believe that we will have a majority of one in the United States Sen? ate in 1884. Much depends, however, on (he ne.vt census, and (he government ought (o appoint none but the most trustworthy Republicans as census takers." From close observation, and from con? versations with the most intelligent pol? iticians in the Charleston) Beaufort and Williamsburg districts, with reasonable chances, ought to elect Republican Con? gressmen at the next general election. In the Fourth and Fifth districts Republi? cans are powerless, but with proper or? ganization and the necessary protection, they could be induced to poll a full vote for electors. Recent appointments to subordinate positions in Federal offices have aroused considerable dissatisfaction. It is claimed that friends of local politi? cians were imported from adjoining States to fill offices which could have been more creditably filled by deserving Republi? cans of this State. The Charleston Cus? tom House appointments especially are severely criticised, and from several coses cited there seem to be some grouuds for the complaints. Yellow Fever Reports. Chicago, August 9. In answer to a telegraphic request of the Daily News of this city, A. D. Long staff, President of the Howard Associa? tion at Memphis, has sent a telegram giving the particulars of the condition of the city containing the following points: The total number of cases of yellow fever to this hour within the city limits officially recorded is 330 ; of this number 90 have died. In addition there have been about 20 cases and 5 deaths of Memphis refugees located within six miles of the city. The disease has not communicated to any of the surrounding towns on account of the rigid quaran? tine. The fever has increased in Mem? phis very perceptibly in the past ten days and is spreading from its original centre. We cannoi; hope for a discontinuance until frost. At least 30,000 persons have left, of whom 12,000 are located in camps Father Mathew and Marks, situa? ted four and Beven miles respectively from Memphis. There have been three coses in Camp Marks and one death. At least twelve thousand negroes are in the city, only 1,000 having gone to the camps. They have declined to leave the city, hoping to receive rations hero, which is in opposition to the views of all parties who are laboring here to attend to such as may be taken sick. Our only safety is depopulation. In consequence of the fever spreading among the negroes iu the past five days there is a growiug disposition to go to the camps. Should their appeal to the people of the United States for rations not meet with a favor? able answer, the negroes will no doubt move as soon as they get hungry. No one but a Howard visitor or a physician knows of the filthy hovels that these peo? ple live iu and in which they are taken sick and too frequently die. We have six physicians on duty and hove had un? der our charge 450 patients sick with various diseases. To these sick people we furnish nurses, medicines, stimulants and food. About 200 have been dis? charged. Our expenses are now &500 per day, and will probably increase. We hove on hand $18,000; this amount would have been sufficient if the negroes had followed the example of the white people and left the city. We hope not to be forced to osk assistance, but fear this non-actiou of the negroes will com? pel us to do so. The sanitary condition of the city is excellent."_ FOR SALE.
