Th* fear has been entertained that thc
Faculty would '?e removed, and the Universi
ty e nvcitf-d into a high school fer the o77
?,re i people Sf tho S.ate.- I will not (lenv
thal tilt v as ground -tor the indulgence til
^ these fears. ;:nd I Lave no quant-I with those
who save expression lo them. Let us inquire
if :ii y have h. en realized. The salary of :.
professor, n? ihe Act estabii-hin'g thc Univer
sity, was fixed at ?1.000; the present Legis
lature raised it lo $2.000. The present Board
of Trustees has not removed a single member
of thc Faculty, but they have tilled a vacancy
by tho election of a gouUemauof the highest
professional reputation, who for a long period
has been a favorite witb^he people of the
Staio. ft is, I believe, von- weil understood,
that at their next meeting they will call to
another vacant chair a man of distinguished
scientific attainments, who has b'ten a Pro
fessor in tho Medical College of Charleston
ibr thirty years. The Professors LeConte
have accepted positions in the University of
Caliibrtna, and thc State has lost their vulua
bio services, but it seems to be t'oe determina
tion of tho Board to repair the Joss, and so
to organizo the Faculty as to give to it the
utmost efficiency One of thc professors has
just returned from the North, which he visited
with th? view of making purcha-e1 to meet
certain wants in his department, and the funds
were supplied by the Board. Liberal appro
pria1; 5ns have Leen made for puttiug the
buildings and premises in order, aud the cam
pus to day is more inviting than it has been
? tor many years. In this connection, il is^I
conceive, no violation of propriety to add,
that the Trustees met the application of a
rc:?l ing professor, a ehort time ego, not only
with justice, but, as he himself remarked,
with ?triking generosity, paying him for extra
sjrvice*. and giving Iiis salary in advance to
the 1st October. These fae's are^ mentioned
for a purpose : the people .should trnow them.
If the University is to die, it will die by other
banda than those of tho present Board of
Trustees. They have done nothing that
should t-'vao i;s door*.agamstthego>! por.pl?*
ff the State, and justify a withdrawal of their
support. I suggest, too, trial romefbing is
due to the Faculty of the University. From
a sense ol duty, they remained at their posts,
and to this course .they were advised by many
of the leading men of the State. They are
gentlemen well known to thc people, and as
jealons of the honor of the University and
of Carolina as any other of her citizens. They
are entitled to the thanks of the people, and
the censure' implied in a withdrawal of their
support is unjust and unmerited.
" With these ficts, I make my appeal to the
patriotism and intelligence of our citizens.
The University can bo saved only by their
pa'ronage, and this patroncge is to bc lound
in number* alone. The crisis ?3 at hand. A
respectable catalogue will'be followed by the
usual appropriation; But if, the people will
m>t send their sons, and seek other institu
tions for their education, then i;e may expect
consequences which all good men must de
plore, and which will be embittered by the
reflection that it was within our power lo
have prevented them.

Armed Negroes in Hancock.
The Greensboro Herald gives the particu
lars of the recent negro outrages in Hancock
county. It appears that on Saturday night,
thc 1 Uh icst., a negro man, who was living
on the plantation of Mr. James Hardiman,
on or near tho dividing linc of Hancock and
Greene, counties, was murdered by a party of
unknown persons in disguise, lt seems that
the negroes in the neighborhood became
greatly excited, and supposing Mr. March
man to-be implicated in the murder, a body
of thirty-five to forty "organized themselves
into a regular armed company, on the night
of 18.h inst., and repaired to Mr. Marchtnan's
house. They surrounded the house and, with
horrid oaths and vows of vengeauce, commenc
ed au indiscriminate fire on the premises, in
which Mr. Marchman was severely wounded.
After keeping up the fire for fifteen or twen
ty minutes, on the assurance of Mrs. March
man I hat they had killed her husband, they
ieft the premises uttcrir-g the most bitter
curses against the whites. So far as we can
learn, the uegroes made no.efibrt at conceal
ment. Mr. Marchman made his escape in
disguise and soon proc *red assistance. The
civil authorities acted promptly, and fifteen
.oTthe^party have been arrested and confined
iu/he Jail at Sparta. They have made a full
confession and given the names of all the par
ties implicated. Floyd "Moore, tho leader of
the gang, is yet at large.

The crops hero, as elsewhere, are injured to a

The excessivo heat of this summor has givtf?
Greenville its ante bellum appearance to a groatcr
extent than during any year since the war, by
forcing many persons to seek its salubrious climato
and healthy waters. Friend SWANDALE has not

' Tho United States Court, now in session here,
odds lifo to our city from summer to summor. It
is now completing its third week, under tho pre
siding care of Hon. GEO. S. BRYAN. It has been
my good fortune to attend closely the proceedings
of this week, and to find myself pleased with tho
courteous and dignified bearing of tho Court, and
edified by the legal ability displayed. The Court
has been occupied since Monday with the case of
the United States vs. 17m. H. Stacks, and it wil*
probably consumo the entire week. Capt. Wm.
H. Stacks is prosecuted by the U. S. Attorney for
forfeiture of property and whiskey, connected
with, what was to have been, a ** Bonded Distille
ry," but which it is alleged, has beca carriod on
without compliance with the requirements of the
Revenue Law. The counsol for defence admit
that all the requirements wore not complied with
exactly by law; but they have also proven that
iPw.as not the intent?t tho defendant to defraud,
and that he was allowed to proceed by tho Reve
nue Officers of that District. This has ralher
compromised the officers themselves, who seemed
bc acting in good faith towards the Government
and the Defendant It shows how careful one
must bo to understand and comply with the letter
of the law, even though the spirit of the law may j
warrant some little departuro; and particularly
io.reference to this Revonuc (oras it is sometimes
aptly termod Infernal) Law. The caso ie a vory
important one, and creates much interest gener
ally. Gon. W- K. EASLEY, of this Bar, and Col.
S. W. MELTON, of Columbia, aro for tho Defenco;
whilst-BYRON, (of Yankecdom, I suppose)
and W. E. EARLE of this Bar arc the Assistant
U. S. Attorneys acting in Corbin's absence. BY
BON opened the prosecution, after the conclusion
of thc evidence, in rather feeble stylo. Gen.
EASLEY followed in one of his masterly efforts'of j
two hours. Col. MELTON followed, after a respite
Gen. EASLEY?naoneftr?ff, and, after two houTj^
was compellod' to ask the Court to hear him
to-morrow. When I say that Gen. EASLEY and
Cul. MELTON aro both deeply interested in this
case, and have given it careful study, your read
ers, who know their reputation at the Bar, may
concoivo what we heard to-dny. Words of mine
cannot convey the slightest idea of the rio tl flow of
eloquonco, tho tolling wit, and the searching ar
gument. Capt. EARLE will have something to do
in replying to-morrow.
But there aro other matters of interest of which
I must spook. I tako it for granted that tho peo
ple of Edgeficld arc interested ia good schools' ;
f r they have proved tho fact heretofore in the
number of students, both male and female, that
h.tvo registered hero iu years gono by. Well, we
people in this beautiful, healthy country, with its
puro waters and salubrious climate, want tho peo
ple of Edgefield to know that our schools are
opening, under new and more favourable auspi
ces ; and that we want them to mSko thc cotton
and let us educate their children. We aro in tho
mountains where provisions are always cheaper,
and we can board their sons and daughters and
teach tbcm, too, cheaper than ii can be done at
homo. We want them to know that if they will
only move horo with their familios, that their boys
can bo prepared for any University or Col'cge, in
the Peabody School, under Prof. J. B. PATRICK,
whom many of them know as a teacher of repu
tation and a gentloman of strict integrity, as is
also his Assistant, Heyn. W. H. CAMr-BBt.L. We
w.int thom to know that ?his can bo done for
nothing, when .they have not the means of paying,
and for a merely nominal prico ivhere they are de
sirous of contributing to ttys common lund. We
want them to know that thoir daughters can also
bo prepared for College on the same terms, and
by compotont lady teachers, all of which may be
seen by reference to our City Poper. Wo want
them to know that Forman University, under its
o3toomod and learned President, JAMES C. FUR
MAN*, D. D., with his Corps of able Assistants,
will soon resume its exorcises, and 1 hat tho course
is thorough and cheap. Wo want them also to
know, by reading ?je advertisement in your pa
por, that the Greenville Female Collogo will opon
simultaneously with tho University, and that their
son? and daughters can come to the same conve
nient and healthy Ipcation, and find their intel
lectual wants readily supplied, whilst their physi
cal condition cannot butboboncfitted by th? brac
ing air etho " Greon City of the Mountains."
We Want them to know all theso facts, and wo
want them to think about tho advantages to bo
derived, either from moving hero willi their fami
lies, or in sending their sons and daughters, who
must bo educated.
No place can boast of moro literary, social, or
religious advantages than Greenville. And, when
we get tho " Air Lino Road," as wo hopo to do,
wc look forward to the timo that numbers will
flock hore, ns the great central point of tho Groat
West of South Carolina. A.

Di: A H SIR:-I beg leave to acknowledge through
you tho receipt of ten thousand dollars, tho fall
Amount of my claim under policy 1850, uhicb
was taken out last February, on tho life of my
late husband, Maj. Amos E. Ward. Allow me to
express my grateful thanks to tho company for
their promptnoss in the payment of this money.
In fact they offered to pay mo the whole amount
due within a very few days after tho death of my
husband, provided I would deduct the interest -or
ninety days, which I declined.
I thank you personally for your kindness in at
tending to the appointment of myself as guardian
for my children, and all othor matters which were
necessary to sec uro to myself and li ttl o children,
the full benefit of my*husband's intentions.
With a sincero desiro to see your company suc
ceed, I romain, Very Respectfully,
MARY B. WARD.
Tho above letter from Mrs. MARY B. WARD
needs no explanation. Her lamented husband,
Maj. Amos E. Ward, was formerly among thc
wealthiest and most enterprising of our citizens,
bat like nearly all tbc rost of^us, ruined by the
results of the war. On the 18th day of last Feb
ruary he made application to the Southern Life
Insurance Company for a policy of ten thousand
dollars, which was accepted and tho policy issued.
In less than ton days after be received his policy,
he was taken sick and lingered until his death,
which took place on the 20tb of April. The
proof of his death was forwarded to tho conpany
on the 24th of May, and Col. Alston, tho sipcrvi
sing agent of tho company, came at once to
Cuthbert and offered to pay unto tho family the
full amount of tho claim, provided they would de
duct thc 90 days interest, which Mrs. Wari de
clined to do. The money wits tbcrcforo due on
August 24th, and on the 21 st was paid over.
We aro glad to know that this deservedly
popular company is doing a very largo bujino.s
in the South-larger perhapf, than any other
Company-. It is a purely Southern corporation,
and has been instrumental in stopping, to some
citent, tho immense druin from our inipoveiishcd
sectioo, of millions, which annually go Norlh for
Life Insurance, which by calculation, buied on
the heit statistics which can be nbtaino'.l, roach the
enormous Bum of over twolve mil;.ons of iollars
annually. There aro twenty-seven Notthern
Companioa doing business in Georgia besidu the
-U-/...- .iL.- C-.- /W ll. L -tl-yiV^.
fcrn Life, is, we believe, thc only one, w^are
: Ta i ns its money in tho Stato. Not ono dollar ta
ken in Georgia is sent out of tho State, but is
securely invested among our own people fer thc
protection of policy holders and the development
of our own material prospciity.
This feature in thu Southern Life, has neural
ly excited the animosity of tho Northern Compa
nies, aud been the cause of the most slumbrous
attacks from Northern Insurance Journals. ?hesc
attacks, however, have had ?no other result tban
to add vory largely to the business of tho com
pany, and to bring forth replies from its office
which provos beyond all controversy, unie? thc
people believe that Gen. G or Jen is guilty of per
jury, that tho Southern Life is not only sohont,
but the strongest company doing business a the
Uuited States. Tho true test if a compiny's
solvency is not tho amount of assets but thu -da
tivo ratio of assets to liabilities. A company Pay
have twenty million of assets and owo twcity
ono million, and thus bo as surely insolvent as
one which owes a million and hits no assts.
! Judged by this mle the Southern Lifo Btmda
without a compeer among all tho lifo insurance
companies of the United States, as the foliovv.ng
table will show. This tablo is compiled frointho
H worn returns to the Insuranco Superintenden. of
New York, for tho year ending Docomber 3Jst,

Connecticut Mutual, 169 to o very 100.

Unite-1 Sutes, 148 to every 100.
Knickerbocker, 118 to ovory 100;
Universal, 189 to every 100. .
Sou them Life, from the sworn sUtcment of it.? '
President and Secretary, has $510,G02,20 with
which to pay $17I,92S,S1, thus giving a ratio of I
assets to liabilities of $299,67 to every $10.0 of |
of liabilities. In other words the Southern life
could reinsure all of its outstanding risks, pay
all of its debts, and close business to day with
a surplus on hand of $339,674,S6. Hore is a
showing that so&Uggors theso northern slanderers
that they have no rcsouroe left but to attack,
tho integrity of its officers, and say that ibo
whole thing is cookod up to. decei,yo_n,nd when,.
Gen. Gordon, the President of thc Atlanta dc'
partmont comes out over his own signaturo and
swears totho above, that ho perjurcshiaisolf. Ibis
will bc hard to make our people believe. Wo da
not intend by this article to draw any unjust
comparisons or to moko war upon any other com
pany, but we do think, othor things hoing equal,
that it is the duty of evory patriotic Southern
man to patronize his own company.
?2?- Somo of the Coban exiles aro locating in
Georgia. A few days sines two Cuban gentlemen
purchased a plantation of eight hundred acres
from Mr. Charles J. Denham, of Columbia Coun
ty, at a cost of $10,000. This tract of land is
situated about seventeen miles from Augusta, and
is said to comprise some of tho most fcrlilo land
to be found in Colombia.
TjSi- There is a genornl complaint that tho no
groes (says th? Charleston Neus,) are not made to
pay taxes on their property. This complaint is a
foolish one. The negroes are free from tax be
cause tboy are not whito moni because they are
Radicals, and because they will bo .wantod one of |
thuso days to vote again for Scott, Bowen and tho
Mackeys. Considering the dirty character of the
work to bo done, tho price is not high.
