A Conflrmed Absentee Turns Tp Senator Shawn
on Iland for the South fa: o'iim Sena
Special Dispatch to the Baltimore Sun.
.THEWSOUTH CAROLINA CONTEST.. ,
Washington, Jan. 6. Senator Sha
ron, of Navada, arrived hero to-night,
his first appearance in Washington for
nearly two years. He will be on hand
in the Senate chamber to-morrow. It
is understood that the purpose of the
Republican Senators is now, at the first
auspicious opportunity, to re-open the
Butler-Corbin case. The report of the
majority of the committee on privileges
and elections, declaring Corbin entitled
to the seat, has been ready tor some
time, and action will be called for on it.
When Mr. Butler was admitted as Sen
ator from South Carolina, with Sena
tors Conover and Patterson both vot
ing for him, he had but ono majority.
If the case is brought up now, Mr. Sha
ron's vote against Mr. Butler will make
it a tie, and the casting vote of Vice
President Wheeler will give the seat
to Mr. Corbin. This is the Republican
calculation, but it is possible that the
calculation may be at fault On the oc
casion of Mr. Butler's admission to the
Senate, Jndge Davis, of Illinois, did not
vote at all, tor the reason that he had
doubts as to the legality of Mr. Butler's
election, although some of the friends
of the latter asserted that Judge Davis'
vote in his favor, would be forthcom
ing if necessary. If this statement was
correct, perhaps the vote of Judge Da
vis can be counted on by Mr. Butler at
this time, which would still give him
one majority. It is true that there were
quite a number of Democratic Senators
who entertained the same doubts as
judge Davis, and who thought the
South Carolina Legislature ought to go
into a new election for Senator, but as
they walked manfully up to the scratch
then, they will do so a second time. This
doubt as to the legality of Mr. Butler's
election was shared also by members of
the South Carolina Legislature. In Co
lumbia in April, 1877, after President
Hayes had recognized the Hamoton
government, members of the Legisla
ture were then debating the propriety
of having a new election for Senator,
and it was said that one of the main
causes which dissuaded them was a
distinct intimation from Gov. Hampton
that he would give the certificate of
election to Mr. Butler, and to no one
else. However, Mr. Butler is in the
seat, and the probability is that lie will
stay there if Patterson and Conover
both stick. JThei casting vote of the
Vice-President would, it is extremely
probable, be disregarded by the Senate
after it becomes Democratic on the
fourth of Mareh,- as the ground wsis
taken that the Vice-President's consti
tutional prerogative gave him no right
to vote on the question of the admis
sion of , a Senator. Mr. Eaton cave
formal notice' that on the 4th of March.
1879, he would move to declare any seat
vacant tne occupant or. which had been
admitted by the vote ot the Vice-Presi
dent The only hope, therefore, it
would seem, that the Republicans can
entertain of getting Corbin in is to
seduce either Conover or Patterson
from the Butler side. If they can do
this the victory will-be theirs. J There
are rumors that Mr. Conover is dissatis
fied and mad with the Democrats be
cause they would not let him come to
the House of Representatives from
Florida, but as his support of Butler
has always been understood to be. due
sdely to personal reasons, this may
make no difference. As to Mr. Patter
son's course, there are curious stories
afloat in Democratic circles to-night to
t ie effect that Patterson, at the time
Butler i was admitted, would have
succumbed to the pressure and the
obloquy heaped upon him. and deserted
Butler had he not been held up by the
hand of Ion Cameron ; that " Don
Cameron, on account of personal
friendship and other reasons, wanted
Butler admitted, but of course, for
reasons of policy, could not give his
own vote to him. Strange as this may
seem, it is believed to be true, and it is
really not so wonderful as many things
which constantly occur here.
Curat to Death.
I Chatham Record.
The dead body of an old negro, named
Isaac Poe, was found, last Friday, in
the woods, between Haywood and
Moore's Mills, on Haw river, with the
legs half eaten by hogs, and the cloth
ing nearly all burnt. Isaac was an odd
character, having lived the life of a
hermit for many years past. He came
into, that neighborhood several years
ago, and until recently, lived all alone
under an old open shelter that he erect
ed in the woods, and ate nothing but
corn bread, which he would get by
working with the neighbors every now
and then. The only clothing tliat he
wore, was old rags that he could pick
up and patch together, and his furni
ture consisted of a bread tray, a jug,
and; an. old oven. He had no bed
clothes,' or wrappings whatever, and
would sleep at night sitting over a fire.
His companions were two hogs, who
were much petted by him, and followed
him in liis ramblings. He was an inof
fensive creature, and the neighbors fre
quently tried to persuade him to give
up ms eccentric , moae oi living, Dut ne j
seemed, quite content and satisneu
therewith. In August last he left: his
old shelter, and lived altogether in the
open woods, with jio covering whatev
er, still accompanied by his pet hogs.
Last Friday one of the neighbors found
his body in the woods near his camp
fire, with all the clothing burnt off ex
cept the collar of his shirt, and the
quarter of an old shoe, which was still
on his foot The flesh was eaten from
his legs by his pet hogs, and his bodv
otherwise mangled bv them. It Iff sun-
posed that theokl man while j sleeping
in a sitting posture over the fire (as was
his habit) tell into it. and was burnt to
death, and his hoes dratrced the bodv a
few feet down the hill, where it was
found.,, He had been seen alive only
two days oeiore, so mat ne died proba
bly Thursday night. The jury of in
quest returned a verdict that he was
burnt to death.
Coinage of Silver Dollars.
The books for December show
two millions and sixty-seven thou;
silver dollars were coined durin

mum. The Secretary; intends to keep
the coinage down to about the same
amount, unless some such bill as Buck

larger figure. csatw-i: c-u-? .

he :who would "shoot folly as it flies,
and boldly hunt down abuse and expose
wrong-doing, must not expect, nor wish,
everyone to be kindly disposed toward
him. If he does, he is himself a fool,
and will be wof ully disappointed. Speak
ing of the Wheeler and Wilson band,
Bridgeport, Conn., Piano says: "One
way of accounting for this falling off in
the public estimation, is the fact that
their leader is a Jew. There is a pre
judice against that race in the public
mind, which cannot be easily over
come." This wholesale denunciation of
a great people mortifies me, the more
especially since he assnmes to speak for
me as well as himself, I being a unit in
the aggregate "public mind. The an
tagonisms between peoples and races
exists only among the lower classes if
we leave out austere, rancorous, sectarian-bigots;
and the lower-osder-of
Jews wll, certainly, compare ; very, tar
vorably with the same class of Irish;
German, English, Italian or "American
roughs." Indeed, the Jews have none
so low as such. Who ever heard of a
Jew who could live only by loafing,
stealing, or brainless labor; or who kept
a low doggery or den oi prostitution r
The great men of any people are those
whose transcendant abilities give tone,
dignity and character to their nation,

musical business relations with those of
all nationalities, and have had my con
fidence betrayed in cases among all but
the Jewish. So has my wife as a piano
teacher. Again, generally speaking, an
inferior musician stands no chance with
a Jewish musical leader or director,
merely because he is a Jew. The same
cannot be said of any other nationality,
save, perhaps, American. Jews are
seldom or never inferior in what they
live by ; and he who has a Jewish com
petitor in music must needs be compe
tent, energetic and politic, and should
he be distanced in the race, the despica
ble dodge of attempting to revive that
dead, rotten shame of a past barbarism,
"prejudice of the public mind." will re
dound to his own discomfiture. Instead

enlightened times, especially in this
great republic. But anyway, Judas Is
cariot was a gwnl man as compared wit h
the mass of his maligners; yet, even if
he was as bad as our official rascals of
to-day, he was only one in twelve.
Would that we had as small a propor
tion in any vocation now. But let us
see in what his atrociousness consisted :
he had only one besetting sin, an inordi
nate love of money ; ("let him without
this sin among you cast the first stone
at him.") The reward of thirty pieces
of silver he thought he could make with
i impunity to his master, feeling satisfied
mat it delivered into their hands, his
enemies could not hold him ; but when
le saw that Christ was "sure enough
in- the toils, and could not extricate him
self, Judas, wild with grief, ran and be
sought his release and offered the mone'v
back ; failing in tins he went and hanged
himself. .Nobody told him to dd. so; he
was not even round out, but his sin was
more than he could bear, (good man.)
wish we had as much integrity and
effectual contrition for malfeasance in
office among the many malefactors
among our highest public men of to
day. Compared with them, Judas was
gentleman, a saint. If our many
naughty B's and many others would
even respect "public opinion" enough to
commit "hari kari" after detection bv
aw, even we could at least pity rather
than execrate the wretches. Judas rid
society of his presence, thus presenting
a laudable example and obvious, evi

Mr. H. R. Stevens:
Dear Sir About ten years ago my health failed
through the depleting effects of dyspepsia; nearly
a year later I was attacked by typhoid-fever In Its
worst form. It settled in my back, and took the
form of a large deep-seated abscess, which was
fifteen months In gathering. I had two surgical
operations by the best skill In the State, but receiv
ed no permanent cure. I suffered great pain at
times, and was constantly weakened by a profuse
discharge. I also lost small pieces of bone at dif

your office, and talk with you of the virtue of Vege

your manufactory, noting the Ingredients, dec, by
which your remedy Is produced.
By what I saw and heard I gained some confi

I commenced taking It soon after, but felt worse
from Its effects; still I persevered, and soon felt it
was benefitting me In ether respects Yet I did not
see the results I desired till I had taken It faithful
ly for little more than a year, when the difficulty hi
the back was cured; and for nine months I have
enjoyed the best of health.
I have In that time eained twentr-flve nounds of

I was never more able to perform labor than now.

I took Vegetlne faithfully, and It removed It level
