any foreign country for tho purpose of

Columbia county is recognized by
the Democracy of tho statu as one of
their most reliable strongholds. Noth
ing has ever swerved her irom the path
of true democracy. Republican perse
cution and Republican inonoy have
failed to change tho result of any eleo
tion, and she can always be counted on
for a good big majority for tho Demo
cratic ticket. "When meeting with
representative Democrats from every
quarter of tho state, it is pleasant to bo
congratulated upon tho condition of
things in our county.
General Grant's article on tho liattlo
of Shiloh, published in tho February
number of Tht Century, has awaken
ed much criticism, and aroused several
old soldiers who claim that Grant has
done them an injustice. General A.
McD. McCook says that whiat is said
about him is absolutely without foun
dation in fact, and that ho will shortly
call attention to a few matters con
cerning tho Battlo of Shiloh and hii
part therein that will provo this. He
says that Grant has persistently pur
sued him for twenty two years. Grant's
reminiscences will no doubt cause much
dispute among tho array men, as no
two will bo apt to remember things ex

FROM OUK HKOULAU COnitESrONDENT.
Washington, Jan., 19lh, 188t.
Tho work of tho weok in Congress
has not been of particular interest.
Tho Senate has held secret sessions
on the pending treaty questions, and
has debated the Inter-state commerce
and Indian bills. Both the House and
Senate havo discussed the Okalahoma
lands invasion, and in both Houses a
day was spent in funeral oratory, tho
subjects being senator Anthony, and
Representative Evins deceased.
Representative Hurd made a strong
speech in oposition to the Blair educa
tional bill basing bis argument on tho
ground that tho Senalo was usurping a
constitutional prerogative of the House
when it originated a money bill to tho
Judiciary committee rfas lost by a
small vote. Tins is understood to in
dicate that the bill has more friends
than enemies in the House and will be
come a law. The amount of money,
about $100,000,000 appropiiated by
tho bill is not the full measure of its
importance. The greater part of the
money will go to the south, and will be
potential in the intellectual habitation
of thu darker part of that section. Un
der a Republican administration tho
money would no doubt havo been used,
like the Freedman'n bnrcau, as a means
of political propogeiida, but in five
weeks a republican administration will
bo a nightmare ot the past.
There arc several importaut mcas
ures awaiting the consideration ot the
House, which ought to be acted upon
at this seesiou. Among these arc the
bill to carry into effect the provisions
of the Mexican treaty, tho Bankruptcy
bill, the .national library bill, and tuo
Blair Educational bill. In the live
weeks yet remaining of the session
there is amplo time to perfect all the
appropriation bills and to act intcli
gently upon tho other measures refer
red to, but a dispositon has been
shown to prevent tho consideration of
any but appropriation bills, and a great
deal of the time of tho House is being
wasted in dilatory motions and roll
calls. This may have serious results.
If the wheels of legislation aro blocked
lor any length of timo tho ap
propriation bills, if passed at all,
will go through in the closing
hours of the session and without prop
per consideration. If any appropria
tion hill fails it may bo necessary to re
convene Congress immediately after
inauguration of President Cleveland.
This would please the Republican Sen
ate and might result in greatly cmbar
assing the new administration.
Tho Committee on Appropriations
expect to report tho Army
anil Post Ollice Appropriation
bills in time to call them up on Tues
day, and Wednesday. It is the inten
tion of the Committee on Rivers and
Harbors to :wk tho coneideiationof tho
It'ver and Harbor Appropriation bill
during tho latter part of the weok.
There is a disposition on the part of
tho friends of various prominent meas
ures now pending to antagonize the ap
propriation bills. Mr. Hewitt will en
deavor to call up the bill to carry into
effect tho provisions of tho Mexican
Reciprocity treaty during tho week.
Mr. Townsend wi,l prees the Mexican
Pension bill t Mr. Stockslager, tho bills
providing for publio buildings through
out the country j Mr. Singleton, tho
National Library bill, and Mr. Willis,
tho Educational hill at every opportu
nity. For tho uoxt two years at least tho
political complexion of tho respective
Houses of Congress is to remain un
changed. The IIouso will bo Demo
cratic, the Senate Republican as has
been tho case during four Congresses
since the memorable election of 1874.
If thu legislation which the country
needs is to bo adopted there must bo
more of tho statesmen, and less of the
mero politician at both cuds of the
The impression that tho bill intro
duced by Senator Edmunds Saturday
to punish dynamiters was subsequent
to the arrival of tho news of tho oxplo-
nion in Londou turns out to be errone
ous. Tho bill was introduced boioro
the Senate went into executive session,
which was at 12,30 p. ro. The report
that serious explosions had occurred in
London did not reach tho Capitol until
fifteen minutes later. It is a curious
circumstance that Senator Edmunds
should havo in a manner anticipated
tho news of tho crimo committed in the
British Puiliament House by introduo
lug a bill in the United States Senate
to prevent and punish offenses of that
DYNAMITE IN LONDON.
THREE GREAT EXPLOSIONS.
THE HOUSES OF 1'AtU.lAMRNT AM) THE
TOWKK OF LONDON 1IADI.Y SIIATTf'.llKD.
London is in a frenzied stato of ex
citement over tho recent attempt to de
stroy property and life by the uso of
dynamite. First camo tho explosion
at the London Bridge by which that
ancient structure was considerably
damaged. Then followed tho Tunnel
nnd tho Scotland Yard ovents, nnd
these wero followed by an attempt on
Saturday afternoon last to blow up the
Parliament Hous"s and tho Tower of
Londou. Immediately beforo tho first
explosion at Westminster, a lady visi
tor, who was alone and about to enter
tho building, beckoned to a policeman,
and when he .went to her sho called his
attention to a package lying nutsidu
tho step of tho crypt. Tho officer
picked it up carelessly, not suspecting
its deadly nature, when tho explosion
Willi tho sound tho big burly guard
went down, and with him, in close vi
cinity, two comrades of tho London
rorco fell. Tho man who hail earned
tho package is dying, the others nro
suffering from tho shock. Thorn wero
many iniurcd. A lady and gentleman
standing by wero prostrated, a boy was
thrown on his face and a little girl tot
tered to the wall. Tle great window
over tho main entrance to Westminster
Hall was smashed to ntoms and all
tho side windows wero blown out.
THE SCENE IN THE COMMONS.
There was only a lapso of threo min
utes when tho terrible report again
sounded. It camo directly from under
tho strangers gallery, lacing tuo
Speaker, in the Commons. The scene
was of an apalling charaete'r. Tho
Western extremity of the hall was to
tally wrecked. Under the peers' gal
lery on the Government side all the
woodwork was shattered and a hole
was made through the floor. The gal
lery itself was displaced, aud even tho
solid stonework of the doorways was
either pulverized or shifted from its
position. Every pano of glass was
shattered. The gallery benches were
overturned and broken ; the Speaker's
chair was destroyed j tho seat whioh
Bradlaugh occupies when present as a
visitor was demolished, and the glass
roof was broken to pieces. '
Tho seat of Gladstone, tho premier,
fared tho fate of that of tho great Rad
ical from Northampton, and all the
decorations and sculpture wero ruined
It might bo said that tho place where
the explosion ocenrred was literally
blown to pieces. Those in the House
at the time say the shock experienced
was something akin to that of an
earthquake, that the building in its en
tirety seemed to bo giving way.
THE WHITE TOWER WRECKED.
Hundreds of yards away some say
half a mile tho tremor which follow
ed the explosion was felt. AVhilo the
visitors in tho Commons were fleeintr
from the building, panic stricken, many
persons on tho streets were trembling
with fear. Its force was such that one
man was blown to tho earth who was
as many as 900 yards from tho point
where it occurred.
But the end had not come. The
Tower, the famous building which is
an object of tho greatest interest to all
foreigners, was to bo a victim. This
outrage was,in fact, tho most successful
which has yet been made upon any of
tho public buildings sinco tho present
era of dynamite warfare. Tho famous
old building was crowded with visitors
at the time, and a large number
were injured. The White Tower was
almost completely wrecked, tho roof
being completely blown off the struc
ture. What investigation has already
been made by the police tends to tho
oonclusion that tho explosives in this
case wero handled by persons who
gained access as sight-seers.
Tho ruins show that tho explosives
were operated from a point somewhere
in the inner bastion or on the espla
nade, near St. Thomas tower. The re
port made was far moro terrific than
either of the others. It was heard for
miles up and down the Thames, and at
once attracted an immense crowd to
The seenes that followed are almost
indescribable. There were at least
sixteen persons injured, several of them
children of tender age. The pale faces
of the little ones, their bloody heads
and broken limbs roused tho great
crowd congregated in tho neighbor
hood to frenzy. Yells were heard on
every side to "lynch tho villains ; roast
The police, the moment they realized
tho nature of tho explosion, effectually
barred all egress from the Tower anil
grounds. Thoy subjected overy per
son whom they succeeded in detaining
to a most rigid peareli, upon tho theory
that the attack was perpetrated by
some person or persons inside the
building. Snrgeous wero promptly
summoned to tho aasistanco ot the
wounded, who received all the atten
tion practicable. The excitement grew
as tho news spread and the crowds mo
There was no delay on tho part of
the authorities to track the perpetra
tors of all threo outrages. It was soon
found that just before the explosion in
the Commons, a man and woman, the
latter carrying a hand-big, engaged n
cab outside of Parliament Yard and
drovo rapidly away, giving no direc
tion as to their destination. They had
not gono very far when tho explosion
happened. Tho driver hearing this
stopped the cab and the man and wo
man nt once leaped out, hastening
quickly lrom tlio spot. Mho cabman
went in pursuit and the fugitives were
soon overtaken and arrested by the po
lice. The man is n Canadian and uppar
cutly a seafarer, Ho was thoroughly
searched, but nothing ot an incrumna
ting nature whs found on his person.
The Tower of London is, peihaps
the most uncient lortrcss in thu woild,
Traditiou even carrries its erection to
the time of Julius Casar. It stands iu
tho Eastern extreme of tho city proper,
and in tho very heart of tho life of the
great metropolis. It covers, with its
many towers, buildings and moat,
about twelve acres of ground and faces
tho Thames River, between two and
three miles below Westminster. In its
time a fortress, it palace and a prison,
it now possesses tho honorary titlo of
being all three, but it is doubtful if the
old structure will ever again bo used
for any one of the threo purposed. In
defereuco. to its past history, however,
all the honors of military service are
paid to it. A constable, generally a
held marshal ot the army, is in com
mand, the ollice dating from the timo
of tho Conqueror, nnd a batlalliou of
guards are in garrison, J. no great
Duko of Wellington was at one timo

Tho Stato senate spent considerable
time on Tuesday over some nomina
tions sent in by thu Governor for the
office of Notary Public One person
was rejected because ho was in tho
rebel array, and thu son of a Rear Ad
miral of the U. S. Navy was rejected
because ho is a democrat. Senator
Cooper took occasion to wavo tho
bloody shirt, and fight tho war over
aguiii, forgetful of tho precedents estab
lished by his own party in tho appoint
ments to ofiico of Longstreet, Mosby,
Aekerman, Key aud hosts of other
rebel leaders who havo embraced re
publicanism. And yet a high private
in tho Confederate service cannot be
appointed to tho unimportant place of
a Notary, aud this is called loyalty.

Tho re-election of W. U. Ilensel as
chairman of iho Democratic Stato
Committee last weeki was a well de
served compliment to a faithful ami
mcient omcer. lie did not seek tho
position, nnd his selection was sponta
neous and hearty, nnd a thorough en
dorsement of his management of iho
campaign. No one else was nomina
ted, but when a motion was mado that
he be elected by acclamation, it was
opposed by a young mau from Phila
delphia, who did not think Ilensel was
sufficiently acquainted with thu details
t a campaign to make a succpshIiu lea
der. Two other numbers of the com
mittee made similar speeches, and then
the vote was taken, resulting in 3 nays,
aud all the rest. yea. it was after
ward discovered that the small discor
dant element had a personal grievance
against Ilensel, aud sought to punish
him by denouncing him, with what
success nppears by the almost unani
mous vote in his favor. Utherwiso
the raci ting was a most harmonious

fictitious literature especially as wo
saw lying round loose, a few novels
near the desk, and on enquiring of tho
librarian we learned that quite a num
ber of years ago ac act was passed
prohibiting fictitious literature in the
State Library, our forefathers having
more dread in those, days ot tho demor
alization of their representatives than
have the parents of children in modern
times, who allow their offspring to
read indiscriminately the dimo novel
