Tbc Richoioa l Dispatch ha* resurrected
a letter from Geo. U-.tv-rt E.
Lee, which has a be*ri?.g apoa a
matter th it hi* be^n much discaseed
iu the new^-iper* liteiy. In 1863,
the Richmond city eoaiicif appropriated
$60v000, ''for the pnrchA'e of a
* 3 /"* 1
a house anil lot to oe tencereu uvucru
Robert E. Lee and family, free of
rent." When General Lee heard of
the action of the city council of Richmond
be wrote the following letter:
Army Northern Virginia,
November 12,1863
To the President of the City Council,
Richmond, Va.:
Sir?My attention has t>< en directed
to a resolution reported in the newspapers
as having been jintroduc^l imo
the body over which yoa preside,
having for its object thepurch^e by
the city of Richmond of a hon e for
the use" of my family. I assure you,
sir, that no waut of < pfrecia ion ot
the honor conferred upon me b> this
resolution or insensibility to the kind
feeling which prompted it, induce!
me to ask, a* 1 most respectfuly do,
that no further proceedings be taken
with reference to the subject The
house is not necosiry for the u?e of
my family *nd my own duties will
prevent my residence in Richmond.
T ,J ka ffi
decline the generons t ffer, and trast
that whatever means the city coanci]
may have :o sp?re for this pnrpose
aaay be devoted to the relief of the
families of onr soldiers in the field,
who are more in need of as?si>tance
and more deserving of it than myself.
I have the honor to be, very respectfully,
Yonr obedient servant,
R. E. Lee, General.
Speaking A this letter the Charlotte
Observer says:
Richmond Pearson Hobson his
faiien into some disfavor oecause ne
ailowei too nuny women to kiss him
in public; aud yet it is recalled in this
conn c;ion that after his performance
at Santiago l.is neighbors at Greensboro,
Ala., sprung a project to raise
money to lift a mortgage o?i his
father's bouse, bat that the young
man said No; he would payoff that
mortgage him?e!f, which he his done,
and in addition to which he is educating
a young sister at one of the best
schools at the South.
Bat this is enongh to say, for comparisons

W3 notice from (hi Aagusta Chronicle
ihat i bill if? now pending in the
Georgia Legislature at the instance oi
Hon. 0. B. Stevens, commissioner ol
agriculture, ''for the purpose of perfectiD;?
the system of oil inspecting in
the State of Georgia." Another instance
of what a loss the abolition of
the department of agriculture hag
been to South Carolina.
me xacc in&i georgia u? a imolguj
of oil inspection has suggested to ns
that Sonth Carolina might have such a
system with great profit and benefit to
the citizens of the State. We have
seen oil sold in this State that was
worth very little more than water foi
illuminating purpose?, and merchants
would say, upon inquiry, that tbey
weie powerless to prevent it. Some
timee it is almost impossible to buy
good kerosene. A system of inspection
would prevent such swindles, and
tbc duty of inspecting meal, flour, &cM
might also be added to the daties oi
tbe i3?pector.
Says the Augusta Chronicle in reference
to the Georgia bill:
Another important feature of tbe
bill is tbe one providing for a StHte
A ?4- ~ ~ ~ UmiIwaoo if will ha
inspector, wuuae uumhwo k. .?? ?
from time to time, to visit the varioupoints
in the State where thero are oil
Inspectors, and to see that their work
is conducted in accordance with the
provisions of the it.w. In all departments
of business and in other branches
of the Siate government it has been
deemed proper to have these supervising
officers whose business it is to
inspect the work of local agents and
keep it up to the standard. It is believed
by the commissioner that the
office of S:afe oil inspector will not
only pzy for itself, but arid a consider
able sum to toe revenues ieueivcu uj
the State from tne Inspection of lilominatin^
oiiR. This measure will come
before tbe senate for action i?the next
dny or two, and it is believed wi 1
pas3 (he upper house as it did ia ihe
Ir will be noted thai the balief is
expressed "that the office of State oil
insDcctor witl not oo!y pa* for itself,
but add a comiderably enm to the
revenues received by (be State." We
suggest that some member of the South
Carolina General Assembly eeod for a
copy of this bill. It is certain'? worth
while to inquire into the operation of
the law iu Georgia. We need a State
oil inspector

Wkat to Do.
There is comfort in the knowledge so
often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's SwampRoot,
the great kidney remedy fulfills every
wish in curing rheumatism, pain In *."ie
back, kidneys, liver, bladder and every part
of the urinary passage. It corrects inability
to hold water and scalding pain in passing
it, or bad effects following use of liquor,
wine or beer, and overcomes that unpleasant
necessity of being compelled to go often
during the day, ana to get up many times
during the night. The mild and the extraordinary
effect of Swamp-Root is soon
realized. It stands the highest for its won- '
derful cures of the most distressing cases.
If you need a medicine you should have the
