? THE IMMIGRATION QUESTION.
To tlio Public of South Carolina.
| The immigration of an industri1
?
>>us white population into our State
2 is now universally aeknowledgod as
the true corner-stone of future prosperity.
The undersigned, having
completed his arrangements to furnish
good aud reliable laborers,
. would be glad to have the planters
' and other patriotic gentlemen geu4
erally, co-operate with him, und rej
spect fully calls attention to the fol,
j lowing programme, as already part>
j ly indicated in the correspondence
published in the Charleston papers
several weeks ago, viz :
TO TIIE EDITOR OF TIIE NEWS.
| A lew days :>go I received a letter
! from Mr. Ferlow, our former Slate
I agent of immigration for the Scan?
, di..avian countries, in which lie inI
forms me that early in this mouth
I he will leave Malmo, in Sweden, to
| arrive in Charleston about the 23d,
i when he would be happy to meet
i planters that desire to make con!
?
j tracts for European labor, at any
I convenient pluce. It would, perhaps,
be interesting to a number of
your readers to peruse Mr. Ferlow's
letter, and if the country papers
would generally copy it, some good
might result. Yours, respectfully,
JOHN A. WAUENER.

Djjar Sir?In the supposition
that you are still interesting yourself
in blilialf of immigration to our
' State, I hope you will call attention
1 to the following;
{Since I left Charleston I have de!

have now obtained tlie agency of
the Cunard line?tlie best steamboat
line running from Liverpool to New
York. This company lias deposited
| vviih tJie Swedish Government ?15,
i 000 in gold as a security for theior1
warding of the immigrants in
| conformity with the Swedish emij
gration laws. I am now in possession
of a license as agent for the
forwarding of immigrants to transatlantic
harbors, and 1 shall do my
best in trying to make the immigrants
go to South Carolina. We
have, in Sweden, a great number, of
people who are unable to pay their
tvholc passage to America, and they
v.uiuitiku inu uiicia ui some nircu or
; four land companies in Missouri,
Wisconsin, Minnesota and Lower
Canada, which pay half of their passage?about
$25 iu gold. Wisconsin
got about one thousand immigrants
last spring in this wa3*.
When these immigrants arrive at

Jurisdiction of the Supreme Court.
MY. Trumbull, from the Senate Judiciary
Committee, lias reported a bill,
j as a substitute lor one olio red by Sumi
tier and referred to tbe Committee, in
relation to the appellate jurisdiction ol
l ho Supreme Court.
Air Trumbull's bill shows a naked
and bare-faced attempt on the part ol
| Congress to destroy the Judiciary as a
eo-ordinate branch of the Government.
~ <.f the most alarming of the
-' s of Congress

j rights Hud; .powers of the Execuw.
I and have passed law a imposing restrictions
upon the Judicial Department
! wholly at varianee with their eonsli|
tutional rights.
! The Constitution wisely divided the
! powers of Government. It confers
| upon the Legislative department the
, power of making the laws; upon the
| Judiciary the power of interpreting
| the laws thus made, and upon the Execative
in devolved the duty of enforcing
them. This beautiful and wise
system Congress seems determined to
overthrow. The Radical majority
claim that they ure the Government;
that tliej' have the right, not only to
enact, but to declare and enforce the
i laws, over the whole of the immense
/
j territory embraced intlioStates of the
! Union.
Wo cannot believe that the Supreme
Court will submit to this unauthorized
and unconstitutional interference by
j Congress with their plain and ac|
knowledged rights. If th? Court
i should determine to uphold their con'
stitutionul prerogatives, it will be quite
j impossible for Congress to enforce
| obedience, unless tho Executive should
join in the erauule against the Judi|
ciary. This, perhaps, Gen. Grant
j would readily do, unless ho should become
alarmed at tho rash action of
; Congress and fear & like absorption by
that body of the Executive power.
Tho real caaefefor alarm, however,
at last, is in the fact that ft statesman
of tho position and ability of Mr. Trumbull
should eyen havo seriously considered
such a hill. Jn tho bettor days
of. the liepublio no trinn would have
permitted oven a suspicion to rest on
. him of a willingness to destroy this

( "Yurrup."
i Mahk Twain's Vis-a-vis with a

! Ilavc you ever seen a family ot

tliey pronounce it? They never
talk to you, of courso, being strangers,
but they talk to each other and ai
you till you arc pretty nearly distracted
with their clatter: till you are
1 sick of their ocean experiences; their
mispronounced foreign names; their
1 dukes and emperors: thoir trifl?%
ventures ; their pointless reminiscence
s till you are sick of tlicir imbecile faces
and their relentless clack, and wish it
had pleased Providence to leave the
, clapper out of tlu-ir empty skulls.

a year in ' Yurrup." and were returning
home to ]>o*ton. Papa said little,
?md looked bored?he had simply
been down to New Yo"k to receive
and cart home his cargo of traveled
imbecility. Sister Angclitie, aged 23,
1 sister Augusta, aged 25, and brother
Charles, aged 3.3, did the conversational
drivel, and mamma purred and
1 admired, and threw in some help

. The Abuse of the Franking Privilege. oi
tt
The franking privilege enjoyed by
Congress has long been justly inveighed
against by the entiro newspaper
press of the country. Tho system in
itself would not be so bad or so con- P1
J "
ueinnaiory, nowcvcr, were it not that "
it loads to such abuses as has drawn J1,
upon it universal odium. In his ex- ^
eel lent message to Congress and to U
the country President Grant assures
the people of an administration of
economy and retrenchment in all the P
departments of the government under
his especial charge. It is to he hoped
that Congress will keep step with the
Executive in this eourso of retrench- %
? sl
ment and economy, and that the first
earuest of its good intentions in this
regard will V?c to abolish the 1'ranUing 11
privilege altogether, or institute a re- n
form in the present system which will "
render impossible the frauds upon the
Post Office Department, to which it
is now notoriousl}* subject. 'C

bags of letters arc thus fraudulently
transmitted through the Post Office,

that is never read, but which involves w
ttC
the Post Office Department in great
expense and encumbers the mails and
often retards their prompt transmis- I*

Congress, perhaps for want offl w
little good advice in the matter, has te
hitherto persistently and contumaciously
refused to abolish their privilego
of franking letters and Congres- 'e!
sional documents, notwithstanding all Wl
the abuses which we have pointed out
as attaching thereto, and which havo
never been denied as existing. Now us
we propose once more that the privi- be
lege bo uboliuhed, but not without of- wi
fering a substitute in its place. Here g?"
it is. Let there be a law passed grant- te<
ing to members of Congress while en- ac
gaged in their Congressional duties an
postage stamps for all proper and nec- tw
essary purposes, the Postmaster Gen- gr
oral to keep a record of the amount
of stamps thus contributed by his de- yii
partment, designating tho quantity ve
allowed to each Representative and gr
Senator. It" Congress is imbued with mi
any of the political wisdom of Gener- re
al Grant, who first in his own udmin- at;
istration of affuirs promises economy ro
and retrenchment and recommends fif
the same much needed policy to the
legislative branch of the government, w
il will surely move in the matter and 8t
act at once upon oujr suggestion. fe
