THE removal of Senator Sumner
from the Chairmanship of the Comniit
tee of Foreign Affairs, by the Republic
Senate caucus, is disapproved by the
Republican press generally. His emi
nent abilities, his long service on the
Committee, and his familiarity with the
general principles that have controlled
our foreign polic! make him unques
tionably the fittest man in the Senate
for the position from which he has been
ousted, while his life-long devotion to
the cause of human freedom gives him
a strong hold on the confidence of the
masses of the Republican party. On
the other hand, Mr. Sumner, with all
his gifted ability, has an over-bearing
demeanor which illy brooks opposition
to his views, and a temperament which
frequently brings him into personal col
lision with his peers on the floor of the
Senate. In the recent San Domingo
debate, this unfortunate weakness not
only involved him in acrimonious collis
ion with nrominent Republican Senators,
but L ied him to make a bitter personal
assault on Gen. Grant and Secretary
Fish. In his opposition to the San Do
mingo purchase, we conceive Mr. Sum
ner was right. This mania for gobbling
up foreign territory, grows out of a false
national pride—is unwise and danger
ous. We have enough of heterogeneous
material to deal with already, and no
commercial advantageous can compen.
sate for the increased strain on our po
litical system by these repeated annexa
tions. But Mr. Sumner was as clearly
wrong, in imperiously pressing his op
position to a bitter arraignment of the
motives of those who favored annexa
tion. It seems to be conceded that for
some time he has not been on speaking
terms - with the President or Secretary
Fish, and several of the most prominent
Republican Senators. As the Chairman
of the Committee on Foreign Affairs
has largely to do with the confidential
policy of the Administration, this anom
alous condition of things rendered neces
sary either a change in the -head of the
Committee, or that the President should
communicate with the Committee
through some other member. A ma
jority of the Seriate preferred the former
course, and hence Mr. Sumnerls remov
al. The latter is unquestionably largely
responsible foram) Senate's action. Y
there is norßepublican who will not re
gret that there was even a seeming ne
cessity for the ehango—while many will
utterly disapprove it.
THE Ccmipiler seems to be morbidly
sensitive over the County Finances,
and regards it a duty to resent every al
lusion to them. With more zeal than
prudence it takes exception to our re
ference to one or two items in last
week's issue, and ventures an exceed
ingly lame explanation of what seemed
to us—and we may, to better account
ants than' the editor of the Compiler or
ourselves—defective in the annual ex
hibit. Our neighbor seems to think
these annual balances, even *ben
amounting to thousands of dollars, are
too small affairs to be can - led forward
into succeeding accounts, that it is . no
body's busin,ess what becomes of them.
It strikes us, notwithstanding the Com
piler's explanation, a novel method of
keeping accounts. A more satisfactory
explanation would have been a frank
admission that the balance of $4,359.62
due Mr. Wattles, the previous Treas
urer, was treated as an additional debt;
In which case the aggregate debt in Jan
uary, 1870, should have been certified as
in fact $53,350.07, instead of $48,990.45.
The Compiler insists that "every cent
received and disbursed is accounted for
under its proper head, as the books in
the office will abundantly verify." All
of which may be so. Unfortunately the
public do not have access to these books,
and they have to deal with the publish
ed statement. Such small items as
"519,499.63, money borrowed from bank
and sundry persons," and "$20,811.13,
notes and interest paid to bank and sun
dry persdns," may be very' convenient
in balancing accounts, and possibly sat
isfactory to persons having access to
the "books," but cannot be so accepted
hr tax-payers generally. The Compiler
is entirely too sensitive on the subject' ,
of the County finances, and its officious
zeal in defending them tends only to
CONGRESS will not, .at the present,
session, enter into meral legislation.
There is a strong pre4asure from the
South for legislation tsivovide security
against Ku-Klux outrages, and a number
of Republican members of both Houses
are disposed to remain in session long
enough to pass something to that end.
The Democrats, however, win vote sol
idly for adjournment, being hostile to
all legislation affecting lawlessness in
the South. A number of Republicans
also favor an immediate adjournment,
some being anxious to get home and
others being boptless of accomplishing
anything effectual, at this session, to
remedy existing evils. On Monday the
House adopted a joint resolution offered
by Mr. Dawes; to adjourn on the 15th,
but the Senate laid it on the table.
The House on Monday adopted joint
resolutions to put salt, coal, tea and cof
fee on the free list. This action, it is
estimated. would reduce the revenue
$16,000,000 from tea and coffee; $521,000
from coal, and $1,150,000 from salt, the
several bills abolishing the duty on those
articles. There is no prospect, however,
that the Senate will act upon them at
the present session of Congress.
THE news from Europe during the
past week is not of special moment.—
The Emperor William had set out on
his return to germany, attended by a
brilliant staff of Princes, officers of the
army, and representatives of German
States. Great preparations were being
made for his reception in the German
cities through which he will pass on his
way to Berlin. Prance remains tran
quil, all efforts of the Red Republicans
to Inaugurate a reign of terror in Paris
having thus far failed, under the rqpres
si ye agencies of the government. The
National Assembly will move to Ver
sailles on the ..13th. A protective policy
as to imports has been announced, with
a view to realizing revenue. The Black
Sea difficulty has been adjusted to the
satisfaction of all parties interested.

at the beginning of the session, by which
all inquiry into the legality of Mr.
Dechert's return from the Ist district was

regulating contested electi2ps. It was
neeeisaiy 'tfitie the Democrats STauld

was carried; hence the smothering of
all investigation of these frauds. The
bill now goes to the House, where it of
course stands no chance of adoption.—

THE PRESIDEN.VS FISCAL CARD
General Grant has just finished the
second year of his Administration.—
Upon his fiscal card we have $208,254,-
473 as the amount paid on the principal
of the National Debt 'during the last
two years, with a tax reduction, in the
meantime, of a little more than eighty
millions of dollars, a decline of about
twenty per cent. in the premium on
gold, and a very notable increase in the
market value of the securities of The
United States. The yearly gold interest
charge, March 4th, 1869, amounted to
$124,256,350; ind on March 4th, 1871, it
amounted to 5113,194,949--showing a
decrease of $11,060,401 in two years.—
This is the result of fidelity in collecting
the revenue of the Government and
economy in the public expenditures—
the two fiscal points in respect to which
General Grant gave his official pledge In
his 'lnaugral Address. Partizanship
cannot ignore these figures, or conceal
them from the people. They demon
strate the great wisdom and extraordi
nary success of the President's Admin
istration, considered in a financial point
of light. They constitute an argument
which the people will not be slow to ap
preciate in the election of 1872.—N. Y.
THE marked political event of the
past week is the removal of Senattot
Sumner from the Chairmanship of the
Committee on Foreign Affairs of the. U.
S. Senate. It had been foreshaduwed
for some weeks by rumors from b Vasil-
ington, as the probable result of Sena
tor Sumner's assaults on the adminia
tration in connection with the San Do
mingo question, and the bitter personal
antagonism between himself and other
Republftan Senators. The Committee
appointed by the Republican caucus to
revise the Senate Committees, reported
in favor of removing Mr. Sumner from
that of Foreign Affairs,•and gave him
the Chairmanship of a new Committee
called Privileges and Elections. After
a prolonged debate the caucus adopted
the report by a vote of 21 to 26. Mr.
Sumner promPtly7declined the new ap=
pointment, demanding his old position
or none. By this change. Mr Cameron
becomes Chairman of the Foreign Com
mittee, being the next oldest member.—
The vacancy in the committee, omit—
sioned by Mr. Sumner's removal, is filled
by Senator Hamlin, of Maine. '
Ii the Senate, on Friday, )dr. Howe
submitted a list of the Staading,Cora
mittees, as revised by the Republititn
caucus, and moved their adoption: An'
exciting debate ensued between the ad.
vocates and opponents of Mr. Bntuner's
deposition—Senators Wilson, Trumbull,
Sherman, Logan, Schurz, Tipton and
Morrill of Vermont, strongly arguing
against the change, while Senators
Rowe, Stewart, Edema* Scott and
Nye as strongly supported the action of
the caucus. The Democratic Senators
did.not participate in the debate, and
contented themselves )vith voting
against Mr. Howe's resolution, which
was adopted by the following vote:
Aimes, Ferry (Mien.), Osborn,
Anthony, Flanagan, Pomeroy,

TUE PRESIDENT'S VIEWS ON MR. SIMI
ITER.—The Washington correspondent of
the l3osion Advertiser says that on Thurs
day morning, prior to th ) assembling of
the Senatorial caw us, General Butler
went to Pesident Grant to see if some
compromise could not be made regarding
Mr. Sumner. Thereupon the President
explicity said that Mr. Sumner could not
be retained as Chairman of the Foreign
Committe unless against the earnest
whishes of both himself and the Secretary
Of State. Among the important mitten
which the Administration would have to
submit . t4; that committe, and which re
quired the sympathy of its chairman, were
the report of the San Iknningo commis
sioners, and the Joint gigh Commission
on the ' Alabaina claims and the fishery
question. Mr, Stunner's views on these
questions were both very pronounced and
very hostile. and his removal was thus
absolutely necessary. This closed the
conference, and General Butler returned
and reported what the President had said.
The caucus was then held, and the removal
of Mr. Sumner carried for the second time.
To make their report of a full and un
biassed character they have examined
State and Federal Judges, prosecuting
officers, political editors, ministers of the
gospel, private citizens, both white and
oolored, members of what is popular
known as the Ku-Ktax-Klan, magistrates,
constables, members 9f thel)iir, men who
have been scourged and abused -by bands
of men in disguise, and indeed all classes
of persons from whom it was reasonable
to expect such testimony could be elicted
as would form the basis of a reliable
judgement upon the subject of inquiry.
Of the fifty-two witnesses examined
it will be found that twenty-nine are
members of the Republican or Radical
party, and twenty-one are members of the
Democratic or Conservative party. Of
these latter, six were acknowledged mem
berg of the Ku-Klux.
The first subject of inquiry is: Have
crimes and outrages of the character com
plained of been committed by organized
political bands of disloyal or evil-disposed
persons in the State of North Carolina?
The evidence demonstrated the affirma
tive of this question. There is first the
order known as "Heroes of America" or
"Red Strings," which was organized dur
ing the war. It was inimical to the rebel
lion, was certainly a political organization
in the interests of the Republican party;
but .the evidence throughout was straight
and incontrovertible that no violence was
either intended. or . countenanced by this
We now come to the establishment of
what is termed the "Ku-Klox-Klan," the
veal name of which, in ita several stages,
has been "The White Brother-hood,"
"The Constitutional . Union Guards" and
the `‘lnvisible Empire," the name of Ku-
Kluz Klan" having been suggested by its
members to decieve the'public, and to en
able them to deny connection with it *hen
asked upon the witness stand whether
they were members of that organization.
This order was instituted in -North C4r
olina some time In 186 e.
Mr. James E. Boyd, a Lawyer of North
Carolina, whose testimony is iinimpeac a
ble, testified that the `#Ku-Kluz" was a
secret organization, having for one of its
objecta hostility to the negro race. The
members are bound, upon the penalty of
death for disobedience, to strictly obey
orderi, even if they involve murdir and
assassination. Its meetings are held in
secret places—the woods generally.
CLEARACTILR OF TIM DISOCIRES.
The disguise prescribed was 'a long
white gown, and a mask for the face. No
applicant could be admitted as a, member
of the organization until his name had
first been submitted to a regular camp.
A county was divided into districts, and
each district composed &damp, which was
under the . command of a captain. The
whole county constituted a kiwi, under
the command of a chief. No person could
be initiated as the member of any camp
until his name had been submitted to the
camp, and his application unanimously
agreed to by the members of the camp.
No raid was to be made, no person pun
ished,, no execution done, unless it ,had
fir at been unanimoulOy agreed upon at a reg
ular meeting of a camp of the klan. The
i.igu of recognition of the White Brother
hood Was by eliding the right hand down
along the Opposite lappel of the coat. If
the party to whom - the sign was made
was a member of the organization, he re :
turreg it by sliding his left hand in the
same manner down along the opposite lap
pel of the coat. The word of distress was
This witness testified that he knew of
peaceable negroes who had been taken out
of their beds at night and hanged; of
ethers being drowned. Its numbers in
North Carolina he supposed to be forty
thousand. The negroes, as a class, before
the Ku-Klux arose, were peaceable.
Andrew Johnson 'was said to have been
the President of the party of North Caro
lina, encouraging the Ku-Klux. This
order committed very many outrages, from
murder to flagellation and larceny. In
Lincoln county three white women were
taken from their hiiiiites and whipped by
In Alunaace county five white women
were whipped, in Catawba county three,
and so on, through most of the counties.
In Orange county five colored men were
hanged, and alio several inmates of the
CONCLIISION OF THE COMMITTER.
From all the testimony heard, the con
clusion is irresistible: ,
1. That the En-lEftix organization does
exist, has a political purpose, is composed
of members of the Democratic or Conser
vative party, has sought to cam , out its
purpose byenurders, whippings, intimida
tions and violence, against its opponents.
e. That it not only bindi its members to
carry out decrees of crime, but protects
them against conviction and punishment,
first, by disguises and secrecy; second, by
perjury, if necessary, upon the witness
stand and in the jury box.
3. That of all the offenders" against the'
law in this order, (and they mtulike many
hundreds, if not thousands, because these
crimes are shown to be committed by or
ganized bands ranging - from ten up to
iseventy-five,) not one has yet been convic
ted in the whale State.
Such being the state of affairs, it is sure
ly not necessary that the committee should
argue the insufficiency of the reasons giv
en for establishing an order which his
led to such results. With such au, army
of criminals at large, with no power in
the State tribunals to bring them to jus
tice; with their grganization, oaths and
secrecy, baffling and defying all the appli
ances of the law, and bringing them to
each other's aid; with the consciousness
that they:numjcier enough to turn the scale
of political power in favor of the party
with which they act, so long as their vio
lence and intimidation are successful
against those whom they oppose; with
acts in view, he must have a credulous
nature who believes that any lempinary
lull in the activity of such an agency at
once of crime :ad of pawer imports coat
tinned security to those who must become
either victims of their crime or submis
sive suppliants to their power.
But the testimony of so many of the
judicial officers of the State as we have
taken can leave no doubt that, as agahtst
the violence of this Ku-gruxorganhation,
the authorities of the State cannot secure,
to its citizens "life, liberty and the pur-
suit of happiness."

needless to.say fruitlessly, while the ves
sel was. stopped for five minutes. The
Captain with his two mates were standing,
as stated, by the log on the starboard
I side, when a cross sea broke, lifting up
that portion of the bridge and tilting the
unfortunate men into the sea. The iron
bars which supported it were doubled up
like pin wire. The bridge waa interrupt
ed in the middle by the Captain's deck
house. The. bridge was solidly construct
ed and of great strength. The man at. the
wheel is not to blame in the slightest for
the occurrence. He was keeping the
course as directed. I consider nobody to
blame in the matter. It was one of the
risks of the sea. The cap of the Captain
was found next day in one of the reefs of
the main saiL Thit sail was terribly
split by the same sea which eatumal the
fatality, and which caused the main boom
to break. There was great grief exhibi
ted by the cabin passengers and others
when they learned the sad news. Mr.
Findlay, who holds a master's certificate,
was then put in charge, . and hi , has ac
quitted himself of the task eolith:led to
him to the satisfaction of all oitboard.
MAR UAGEa.—A bill has been introduced
into the Pennsylvania Legislature, which
makes it more difficult for persons to
marry, as follows:—"An Act regulating
marriages and for the protection of clergy
men and justices of the peace performing
the ceremony. The bill makes it the duty
of any person empowered by law to join
others in marriage to first require of those
presenting themselves for marriage a
license issued by the Clerk of the Orphans'
Court where the marriage ceremony is to
be . performed, under the hand and official
seal of said clerk, and within thirty days
after the ceremony the person or persons
performing the ceremony shall return the
license to the clerk, with an endorsement,
giving the date of marriage, the names of
some of the witnesses present.' The Clerk-1
of the Orphans' Court, when applied to
by any person legally entitled to a marri
age licerise, or by the parents and guar
dians of those not legally entitled thereto,
shall issue a license in substance as fol
lows:—Marriage license, name of place
where license is issued, month and date,
any person authorize t:' by law to
perform the marriage ceremony, greeting:
You areliereby authorized to join inmar
riage A. B.; of —, aged —, and C. D.;

will make due return to my office within
thirty days. E. F., Clerk. The clerk
shall keep a correct copy of all marriage
licenses by him issued, in a book, together
with a copy of the return endorsed on
such license by the per-on performing the
ceremony, and shall receive $1 for the
If any clerk shall refuse or neglect to
issue a license to any person legally enti
tled to the same, or shall neglect to record
a copy of the license with the return with
in thirty days after such return, or any
person refusing or neglecting to return
the license with the return endorsed with
in the time specified, shall be deemed
guilty of misdemeanor, and on conviction
be fined not exceeding $l,OOO and costs.
If the clerk shall be in doubt as to the
right of - persons applying for license to
assume the marriage relation, he shall
administer oaths and examine witnesses
who shall be liable to prosecution for per
jury for false swearing. Should any pro
bate judge fail to examine witnesses, he
shall nevertheless be liable to a fine for
granting license illegally in not exceeding
$1.,000 and costa. The presentation of a
license duly issued to any person author
ized to perform the marriage ceremony,
shall be sufficient authority for the per
formance of the ceremony, and a full &Ft
swer in any suit for marrying minors and
others forbidden by law."
Hann/ Rocniteonr.--The cable -an
nounces the death of genri Rochefort, a
young Frenchman whose name has attract
ed much attention during the last two
Years. He was a brilliant and effervescent
writer and speaker, and bitterly hostile to
the Empire. His paper, the Lantern,
was suppressed by the authorities for its
boldness, and he was fined and bhprisoned.
This paper was one of those andicieus
sheets that *sprang fat* life l trader the
new press law of 1868. It waive small
pamphlet weekly, and its first nine num
bers had a very large Circulation. Roche.
fort was finoll.spoe francs and sentenced
to imprisonMent for twenty nine mentks.
His paper was removed first to Itrintsebl .
and then to Aix-la-431rapelle, where he
issued 100,000 a week and sent them in
sealed envlopte into France. The war
found Roasted' in limbo,. but the SWIM'

academy concluded to walk out and meet

distance, and not finding her, they return
ed. TUezuesnbers-of the batik:aim -• , •
became alarmed and at once-organized a
regular search. After a ii•iiitle.ta.„search
of some hours, they returned, and a party
of horsemen started. They letAted that
she had been seen about a mile from town,
and after procuring the assistance of David,
Cyrus and William Clouser, living near
Where she was lent seen, they continued
the search, and soon discovered tracks
leading from the main road to a small pond
about six feet from the road side. Here
they found a handkerchief spread out on
a small bush bearing the name of the
miming tine. -This at onCe convinced them
that the body must be in the water, which,
upon °rumination proved to be the case.
This pond is small, and bas formerly been
,used for coaling purpoeen. , Wlio water at
'the deepest poi—t is eighteen inches. Her
feet Were fourteen feet from the shore,
thus indicating that she walked in and
threw herself backwards. Stones were
found in the water as though used for
steps. The fact that her 'handkerchief
was placed on the bush, the stones in the
water and all the circumstances connected
with the case, show great presence of mind
up to the very last moment. A jury in
vestigated the case, and rendered a. verdict
in accordance with the above facts. Miss
Fagot, was a very estimable young lady,
aged about 23 years, and, had endeared
herself to all who knew her. She had
been attending school in this place since
Jan. 11th. On Saturday morning her
friends came from Sunbury and took the
body to that place for interment, near
which she has a brother and sister living."
A STOUT nr DAN Rtes.—ln the Mayo's
paler the other day, says the New Orleans
Picayune, we encountered Dan Bice, the
veteran drew; man ftneiniMitilble down.
He, as Mnial, took the lead in conversation,
and got off quite a number of jokes, of
which be seemed to have a fund inexhaust
ible. Among other things he related an
anecdote of the well-known actor, Din
Marble, who, during his life, was acknow
ledged to be the best comedian on the
stage. "Marble," said Rice,. "was very
fond of his tod, and ;lever missed an opppr
tun ity of attending thoraces. It, happened
that on the evening that he was to appear
at the St. Charles in the Yankee Teamster,
or some other similar play, one of the
most exciting races that ever, cam* off in I
New Orleans took place, and Dan, of
course, was there. Imbibing pretty freelY,
he was soon 1U a state that was scarcely
Ilignitlet% i4d it was with no little &M
-multi he was taken to the theatre and
gotten into any sort of condition for ap
pearing before the clamorous and expect
ant audience. At last the curtain rolled
up. Dan was pushed on the stage. The
glare of the lights and the sight of the
audience reared with laughter, and Marble
(sot tdo drimk to appreciate the situation)
stood surveying the house in the most
comical fashion, swaying to and fro un
steadily. Finally he said: 'Here I am—
little late. Fact is, been to the races. All
the fellers bet whisky, and I held AAA.'
The indescribably comic expression or,
Matble's face, and: the 'absurdity of his
excuse, set the house in such a roar as I
shall never forget while L lire. `Pioi
Marble,' continued Dan, 'ha died of cholera
afterward up the river, on the very nig
that he played a piece which he had him
self dubbed "sure cure for cholera."
ENGLISH POLITICS.—The attentive read:
er of the newspapers scarcely needs to be
informed that the English people are be
coming dissatisfied with the waning influ
ence of their ,nation in the great events
which are transpiring en the Continent,
and are alarmed that gennanyand,Russia
should pay no attention to reqiiests or ad
vice from their Government. Mr. Glad
stone and his Ministry have to bear the
blame to a large extent of this" condition
of affairs, and this Opposition in Parlia
ment give them little rest from their fre
quent attacks. As an illustration of the
British feeling that their country is losing
its prestige, we copy the following from
Judy, ono of the London humorods week
"J. Ball beis to inform his friends, the
public, heads of families and teachers in
infant schools, that he is prepared to ex
hibit on very reasonable terms his cele
brated English Lion (quite tame.) The
awe-inspiring and terrific roars of this no
ble animal, combined with its perfect
harmlessness, are now well known. Any
person may, with the greatest impunity,
kick or spit upon it, pull it by the tail,
so that much fun may be derived from its
ferocious demonstrations, at which nobody
need feel the least afraid. It has been ex
hibited before all the crowned heads of
Europe, and has raised screams of laught
er. Address J. Bull, at the 'Wind Bag
Inn,' Lamb's Conduit street"
ANCIIINT RELICS MOTILATED—The old
Cathedral of St. Denis, in Paris, the
bdPial place of many of the Kings of Prance
suffered severely from the German shells
during the bombardment. Around the
windows a number of the superb arches
were smashed and the ornamental masonry
badly broken. After the city surrendered
the soldiers mutilated the statues which
are erected on the tombs- The head of
St. lienia was knocked off, two lingers
were broken.from the heads of Catharine
de Medicis, Med thehea4 r feetand swords
of the figures of Henri XL; Charles V.,
Charles d'Anjou, Chaska' Martel, Louis
XVI. and Charles le , el . The marble
angles hovering over tbe 'Minh of Louis
'and Phillippe Alaimo& irere broken into
fragments. Blanco de Prance, Marie d'
Espane and Jeanne d'Evermix suffered
the loss of their hands, crowns and wreaths.
Altogether the destruction of these price
lese memotials of the hlatorio ages is irre
parable, and causes a deep regret. •
