• Homicide at the New York Boat Race.
The great excitement attendant upon the
Boat Race at Poughkeepsie between the
New York aud Poughkeepsie boat resulted
in a homicide. Tne affair is related as fol
De Mott approached William Stevens, one
of the crew of the four-oared boat
Floyd T. F. Fields, which was beaten in the
great race on Tuesday, aud accused him of
selliug out to New Yorkers. Stevens earn
estly denied the allegation, and on De Molt
repeatihg it, struck him a powerful blow
with his fist, knocking him down aud break
ing his neck. Stevens immediately gave
himself up to the authorities, and is now in
jail in this city. He had no intention of
killing De Mott, and feels deep grief at the
result. Coroner Haight held an inquest on
the body to-day, when the jury brought in a
verdict in accordance with the above facts.
Considerable sympathy Is manifested for
Gov. Wells on Neoko Suffrage.—Gov
eruor Wells, of Louisiana, in a recent ad
dress before the Universal Suffrage Society
of Louisiana, said:
I dissent iu toto from that conclusion. On
the contrary, 1 am fully persuaded, from my
knowledge of the negro character, that nine
out of teu of the late entire slave population
■would support their former masters person
ally or politically, or any way, in prelereuce
to all sti augers—and I regard all as strangers
in ibis connection who did not stand iu this
domestic relation towards them. Nay, more,
1 believe in my heart, that within twelve
mouths from tue time the negro would ob
tain tue suffrage, neither the unfaltering
-Southern Union man, nor the Union man
•whose loyalty dates irom the obtaiument of
Federal office, could live otherwise tbau on

was given, if the individuals lately in rebel

logue had been disposed of down to the

quantiiy, the bidding became so slack that,
at the suggestion of one of the committee, the

HOMICIDE IV CHARLESTON.
From the Charleston Courier of the 25th
we take the following :
DISGRACEFUL AFFAIR AT ORANGEBURG, S. C.
We learn by a gentleman from Orange
burg, 8. C., that a number of the First Ohio
Cavalry have been guilty lately of some
very disgraceful proceedings in that town.
On Thursday or Friday last, a large party of
them visited the 9tore of Jones & Johnston,
and, instead of giving the protection asked
for, cleared the store of everything it it,
wantonly destroying and throwing in the
street whatever they did not appropriate to
themselves. Messrs. Jones & Johnston had
a large slojk of liquors, which they were
disposing of to the planters in exchange for
cotiou aqd other produce. They had re
fused to sell liquor to soldiers, except to
officers, and it was supposed that refusal had
enraged the men and led to the pillaging of
the store. Their loss is estimated at be
tween two and three thousand dollars. The
Post Commandant did all in bis power to
arrest the parties, but was unable to save
We learn that some of the same party af
terwards proceeded to the hotel and caused
some disturbances there, breaking glasses,
The next day the Cavalry left for the
Eastern part ofthe State.
WHOLESALE SALE ITLL.VGINO IN CHARLESTOM.
On Friday night last a party of eight or
ten colored soldiers visited the store of Mr.
H. P. Knee, who had been victimized a few
nights previously by an extensive robbeiy on
bis premises, aud commenced some suspici
ous demonstrations, when the corniug of some
white citizens on business evidently inter
fered with their plans and they left without
having an opportunity of carrying their plans
into execution, From Mr. Knee's store they
proceeded to that of Mr. K. P. Reils, at the
corner of Ratcliffe and Smith streets, and
were commencing suspicious overtures of
familiarity with his money drawer, when the
same opportune circumstance as occurred
with Mr. Knee; induced them to beat a re
treat. The line ot march was taken up and
terminated at the shop of Mrs. Roberlitz,
corner of Cannon and Rutledge streets,
where, unfortunately, there was no one in
the store except her clerk, at whose breast
a pistol was presented by one of the scoun
drels whilst another quietly possessed him
self ot the contents of the cash box. The
party then retired firing the pistol at the store
us a malicious feu de joie on their success,
Mr. C. Witcheu, who keeps a store at the
corner of fYnn and Elizabeth streets, was af
flicted with a similar visitation about 8
o’clock on Saturday evening. A squad of
colored soldiers came into his store osten
sibly for tbe purpose of purchasing segars.
Upon handing- a bunch of segars for their in
spection they were snatched from the clerk
while a pistol w r as presented at tbe breast of
Mr. Witcben aud a donation of a dollar re
quested in tbe delicate terms of the highway.
Before compliance could be made with this
moderate demand the money drawer and
contents were extracted aud the whole
Mr. Witcben appealed to the Captain of
Police for a guard as he considered his life
endangered. He seems confident of his abili
ty to identify the trespassers as members of
the 64th Massachusetts Volunters.
HOMICIDE ON SHIPJfOAD.
Last Thursday a difficulty occurred on
board the schoouer Z. Secor, Captain Baker,
in which the steward, William Lynch, was
fatally stabbed with a sheath knife by one of
the crew, named Andrew Manning. The
unfortunate man expired almost immediate
ly. Manning has beeu arrested and lodged

The steamer Cosmopolitan, Captain Crook

following morning, consuming only six hours
and five minutes time on the passage. That
is the best time ever made in this depart
ment.— Charleston Courier, 25.

V « HILTON HEAD MARKET.
In Jhe .Transcript’s Market Report occurs
Rkmakks.—The market seems to be a mis
erable failure. Nearly every stall had water
melons, -and'scarcely anything else. A few
sickly-iookiug, worm-eaten cabbages were
for sale. Tomatoes and Okra were lair, and
sold by the plate, A produce store at Hilton
Head, with a purchasing agent in the coun
try, would realize a rapid fortune for its pro-
S rioters. At Beaufort, S. C., produce is re*
tiled for less than wholesale dealers in our
market charge fir the same.
—There are 1,704 wollen factories in ope

crop of wool is about 95,000,000 lbs. The

The Revolution in H*ytl.
HOW IT CAME ABOUT.
Geffrard was elected President of Hayti
for five years; at the end of that period, the
Senate re-elected him for life, according to
the constitution of the country, but not in
accordance with tbe wishes of a majority of
the people. Yet he had done more to civil
ize and elevate tbe nation than any ruler that
bad preceded him, and bis character and pe
culiar faults are nothing unepmmon in Hay
ti. The government of the country is a mili
tary despotism, similar to that of Napoleon
when first consul, and tbe President, conse
quently, has almpst unlimited power.
Therefore, when the people wish a change
of rulers, revolution becomes an absolute ne
cessity, there being no other means open to
HOW IT HAS PROGRESSED.
The present levolution lia9 Been in con
templation and preparation for some years,
and was known, it seem 9, to foreigners be
fore the government was apprized of it. Per
sons in all the cities and towns of Hayti are
connected with it, and the Patxhan guns and
ammunition now used by tbe “rebels” came
from the United States. The government
troops have been Worsted in almost every
encounter, and are rapidly deserting to the
THE COMMANDER OF THE REBEL ARMY.
Salinave, who commanded the rebel army,
was in Domiuica fighting against Spain. He
was under sentence of death in Hayti, lor
political offenses. He took possession of
Cape Haytien with about five hundred Do
minicans and an equal number of Haytiens.
Since that time he has received upward of a
thousand Dominicans more, and large num
bers of Haytiens. Geffrard's best troops have
been badly whipped, aud a great many de
serted, oge regiment having gone over in a
body, officers and men.
A short time ago Salinave discovered a
traitorous general among his officers, who
was holding correspondence with Geffrard,
and bad laid a plot to retake Cape Haytien.
Saliuave allowed him, with his men, to ad
vance nearly to the gates, and then opening
an enfilading fire upon them with grape and
canister nearly annihilated them, wounded
the general, who ran away, aud cut his aid
and horse nearly into mince meat. At this
date, June 26, no mails had arrived at Port
au Prince from either Gonaives or St. Marc,
so we conclude that the flame has reached
those towns, and that Salinave will soon be
in front of the delapidated . forts and anti
quated guns of this city.
THE UPSHOT OF IT.
In fact, as I am informed, Geffrard has
been advised to leave as soon as possible, as
his troops are not to be relied upon—the
common soldiers caring little who is Presi
dent so that they get their pay. Salinave
pays his soldiers twenty five gourdes a month
aud eight gourdes a day for subsistence.
Geffrard pays four gourdes a month, and four
gourdes a day for rations ; and a gourde is
only worth about seven American cents.
The result is easily seen. Foreigners have
never yet been injured in Haytien revolu
Damei, the present minister of public in
struction, will probably be elected by the
Senate as President, should Salinave succeed.
Under the new order of things greater priv
ileges are promised to whites; a treaty of
commerce will be made with Dominica, and
improvements receive liberal encouragement.

The Form of Pardon. —A petition for par
don is made directly to the President, who
calls to his aid the Attorney General, through
whose hands all applications pass, and thence
to the Secretary of State, where, in case a
pardon is granted, a warrant is issued sub
stantially as follows, aud generally in the
words of this form:
“Whereas, , by taking part in the
late rebellion against the Government of tbe
United States, has made himself liable to
heavy pains and penalties ; and whereas, the
circumstances of his case render him a pro
per subject of Executive clemency i Now,
therefore, be it known, that I, Andrew John
son, President, do hereby grant to the said
■ a full pardon and amnesty for all of
fences by him committed, arising from parti
cipation, direct or indirect, in the said rebel
lion, conditioned as follows, viz : This par
don to begin and take effect from the day on
which the said shall take the bath
prescribed in the proclamation of the Presi
dent, dated May 29, 18G5, and to be void and
of no effect if the said shall hereafter
at any time acquire any property whatever
in slaves, or make use of any slave labor,”
[From Bu.,tou Journal,j -
Sum Rue Mor til and South.
There is a great deal of excellent advice
now being given by the North to the South
ou the question of suffrage; but aH will
agree that, where it is possible, the best ot
ail shapes to put it in is that of example.
This always certifies the sincerity of the ad
viser, and gives increased confidence in his
competency. We are reminded of this by a
little struggle which recently occurred in the
Republican State Convention of lowa. The
Committee on Resolutions had reported,
among others, the following :
Resolved, That, with proper
the purity ot the ballot-box, the elective
franchise should be based upon loyalty to
the Constitution and Union, recognizing and
affirming the equality ot all men before the
That L the true doctrine well expressed.
But, unhappily, the State Constitution of
lowa, in defining the qualifications of elec
tors, restricts them to the case of “white”
men only. It may well be imagined, there
fore, that when the above excellent resolu
tion was read in convention, many membeis
must have thought that its application, like
charity, ‘should begin at home. So a gentle
man rose and proposed an amendment in
dorsing an amendment to the State Consti
tution striking out the word “white” above
referred to. Quite a lively skirmish follow
ed, with various motions and speeches; but,
on the matter finally being brought to vote
by counties, the amendment was carried by
’ fi ve hundred and fifty-tour for, to two hun
dred aud thirty-six against it.
How many colored men, women and chil
dren does the reader suppose there are in
the great State ot lowa to be affected by this
action ? By the census of 1860, only 1069 !
It was thus only a question of principle that
was to be decided, and yet nearly one-half
of the Republican Cc*iveution resisted the
h° m “.application of their own just doctrines!
The Democrats will probably go in a body
fqr the continued exclusion oftaegroes from
she pojls. There are yet some ten or twelve
Northern Srtites where this injustice prevails.
The fir*: thing they ought to do is to purify
their oin record. Theu, with clean hands,
they can call upon the people of the South
to go and do likewise, though the effort in
the case of the latter must necessarily be ten
times as trying as that ot the former,
