Registration and Representation.
As the Legislature will soon be con
vened in extra session, and there is like
ly to bo no intermission between' the
extra and regular sessions, it may not
bo inappropriate to direct attention to
some matters of importance, which nave
been too long neglected by the General
Assembly. The points involved (says
the Anderson Intelligencer,) are found
in the Constitution of the State, and we
do not think this instrument of organic
law is too old fashioned for an occasional
Sec. 3, Art. 8, declares that " it shall be
the duty of the General Assembly to
provide from time to time for the regis
tration of all electors." This plain and
palpable duty of the Legislature 'has
been totally ignored, since the Constitu
tion went into operation five years ago,
and we think it is a safe and salutary
clause that should no longer be disre
garded. Indeed, the elections held du
ring the past five years have been in
direct conflict with the provision of the
Constitution, and to that extent have
been irregular and perhaps illegal.
Sec. 4. Art. 2, provides for the appor
tionment of Representatives among-the
several Counties, according to the num
ber of inhabitants. An enumeration of
the inhabitants ls ordered to he made in
1869, and again in JL8 5, and every tenth
year thereafter. Under this enumeration,
Representatives are to be assigned, in
the proportion mentioned, by an Act of
the General Assembly, at the session im
mediately succeeding every enumera
tion. The census was taken in 1889,
agreeably to ibu> order of the Constitu
tion, but there has been no apportion
ment of Representatives under that
oerisuH, Is it too late for the Legislature
to remedy this default of their predeces
sors, and must the people await the re
sult of the next census, before their
rights are secured? The present appor
tionment is unequal and unjust, and it
behooves the General Assembly, at the
approaching session, tb make a new ap
portionment, in time to. apply ita pro
visions to the next general election.. .
The election laWH, also, should be so
amended that the managers will be re
quired to make a return to the Commis
sioners of Election' within twenty-four
hours after the polls are closed. At
present, the managers are allowed three
dayH to make their returns, which is an
unnecessary delay. Further, the Com
missioners of Election should be re
quired to meet immediately after tho re
turns are made, and aggregate the vote
of the County, instead of allowing six
days to elapse before this meeting takes

A Charming letter from Greenville.
GREENVH.EE, Sept. 13,1873.
Dear Advertiser,-Will . you pauao a
few moments, before all. your blank col
umns are filled for this week, and give
me just one, to chant the praises of my
elegant "Summer Home'.' in the Moun
tain City of our dear old State-dear still,
though her glory be fallen ; for can a son,
Or daughter, of South Carolina look upon
a record of her past greatness, and fail to
feel a thrill of pride for the soil once gov
erned by a line of Heroes whoso deeds,
of true valor and strictest honor, will
ever stand forth amid our darkest hours,
as bright shining marks of the glorious
past of the proud " Palmetto State."
This summer, Greenville has been gay
beyond conception, and her oldest citi
zens, looking proudly on, say, never was
a season of more true pleasure and en
joyment known amid the hospitable
homes of their beautiful city. The Man
sion Honse and all the private boarding
houses are filled from garret to oellar,
and still the visitors are coming. There
is some nameless, indescribable, fascina
tion lingering in the very atmosphere,
which when once Inhaled, sends new
blood coursing through the veins, and
wakening all dormant powers of pleas
ure, causes one to see only the bright and
gilded side of life.
The driving, the walking, the moun
tain parties, and the moonlight revels at
he falls, are all sources of amnsement
o which the old, the young, the gay, and
:he sombre, turn alike, with that keen
lelight which the bracing mountain air
?reates in the most careless and indif
We, among a fortunate few, have been
h row a amid tho elegance and refinement
)f one of the most delightful private
warding houses in the South. Its beau
ifolly kept rooms and elegantly sup
pled tables, together with its blooming
lowers, singing birds, growing grasses, i
md above all, its highly cultivated and ;
mequaled mistress and familv, render ;
t, not extravagantly speaking, an;elysi- i
im of perpetual bliss, and those who ]
lave been so fortunate as to find tb. me t
lummer a home amid its beauties, will j
icarcely be able to pass another in hap- (
?ness elsewhere, i
And now we como to the groat "Air i
Liine," whose inexpressible addition to j
)Oth the business and pleasure of the <
.iiy, gives birth to universal delight <
.uiong the people. How grand to be able \
0 sit in their homes, and know that three j
?r four trains come thundering in du- j
ing the day, bringing passengers from
,11 quarters, and placiug the freight ol (
nerchants and farmers almost at their ?
rery doors. Glorious! We walked over (
o the depot a few days .since, which com- ]
oands a line view bf the cars as they ap- >
iroaoh. And can there bo conceived a \
rrander snpot??*?!?? H."?' TXV T' . '

hat is soon to follow. t
The Seminary and Male and Female l
foliages have just opened for the pres- ?
nt sessions, and numberless lads and ;
aisses and theological .students are pour- j
rig in with every train. Greenville has (.
ver been noted for its superior educa- \
ional advantages, and consequently, ic
ecms quito useless to attempt to add ono c
park to tho glory of its far-famed insti t
iitions of learning.
Bishop Howe has jus t, boen hero on Iiis i

f received aud most highly entertained ,
y tho people. His congregations were c
lrge; and Ilia sermons, deeply eloquent, ,
poke of a mind of great strength, and a .,
pirit of untiring research. c
Well, now that scorching August has n
?elted into September, and the cool days
rc com in ii on, wo are soon to turn our <
ices upon the pleasures into which wc ?

BABY PARMI?O IN NEW YORK CITY.
L shocking cnao of " baby fr niling" was
?rought to the notice of the Special Ses- .
ions of New York city Thursday morn- (
ag, the prisoner at the bar being a woman ]
amed Sarah Coates, of 205 East Sixty- (
bird street. Neighbors and others teati- ?
?ed to the fact that abe frequently kept a (
ittle six months' infant lying in ncr back j
ard exposed to the rays of the sun ; some- .
im es the infant would remain there all ,
lay without nourishment. This child j
lied on the 9th ol August, and another in .
he keeping of the same woman died on 1
he 24tn, also from neglect and inhuman .
reatment. Their, bodies wore/reduced to
aere skeletons, and were almost black ,
rom being exposed to the sun. One of j
he children, it seems, belong to the C ir 1
assian woman connected with Barnum's '
?us?ura ; the other belonged to a Mrs. j
?oger. A Mr; Doyn? said the little crea
urea, even before death, "looked like ,
loiled meat," and that he had often re ,
nonstrated with the woman in vain. For ?

lential curse, ramifying into tho re
motest corners of the land. And it is all
a fungus growth, from the course pur
sued by a thoughtless nation. Every
thing is sent to tho North or the East, to
pay a toll ; everj'thing wo buy comes
from the North or the East, that the
Cities of New York, Philadelphia.and
Boston may first levy a toll. It is this
system "that has made it no unusual
thing for a Railroad official to live in a
house for which the rent is only one
thousand dollars per month. Then no
people in the world indulge in thfi East
ern magnificence, that does your Rail
road or bank officials of New York,
Philadelphia and Boston. Senseless
waste is the fashion, and the agricultu
ralists of the country pay for it, right
This reckless waste causes high freight,
and makes everything else high, but
produce. If a Pr?sident of a Railroad
or Bank lives at the rate of thirty-six to
fifty thousand dollars per annum, it is
fair to presume that tho vice-President
or Cashier, will aim to spend twenty to
twenty-five thousand, and so on down to
the meanest official in the employment
in the corporation. Somebody must pay ,
for all this. Yes the business of the
country people pays for it, both by pro- :
duce sold to foreign countries, and goods
bought fer consumption. Isitanywqn- ;
der that these country people are kept
poor? And if it had not been for the ;
sonstant stream of emigration that has '
flowed to the West, carrying with it ,
millions of money to buy homes, the i
igrienltural interest of the country would 1
liave been totally ruined by the ex- j
Lravagance of their financial and busi- j
ness agents. How long, oh ye of slow i
compr?hension, will you permit this 1
tangos growth to thrive? How long ,
will ye get all your opinions, thoughts, !
md fashions, from communities, whose '
3tod is mammon, and with whom vile }
corruption is no disgrace? What pat- j
;erns ! that we copy our customs from i
.hem, and to whom we bow down, as the 1
;reat models of an advanced civilization. ?
There can be no " national relief" from i
mr present, distressed condition. Wo
nay go on for years producing prodi- '<?
jious crops of grain, meat, cotton, to
jacco, &c, Ac. We may bear taxation ,
ivithout limit, but we will" never bo any i
Detter off; anv richer, nationallv, be- 1
lone of these improvements, compuls
ively ; our soil is being gradually ex
lausted, our Railroads belong to stran
jers, our farms are mortgaged, our
states iu debt, our taxes consequently
?oavy, but not as heavy as the hearts of |
mr people at their inability to make
joth ends meet at the close of the year.

WHAT BECOMES OV rnv. Con>*?
In tho heated diseussions which aro
akiug place concerning the rates of
ransporjation, a recurrence to certain
istablfshed facts may bo bf advantage.
X is assorted to bo the fact that the cost
)f transporting corn and wheat and other
(rains ovor ordinary wagon-roads is 20
;ents per ton per mile. Wheat is coni
?mted at 60 and corn at 50 pounds per
j ash el. So long a? corn can be sold for
'5 cents per bushel, it can bo moved 125
niles, the value to the owner diminish
ng each mile, until it ceases at 225 miles.
\t that distance, the cost of transporta
ion equals the value of the corn. Wheat
lolling at $150 per bushel may be moved
ay the same means 250 miles, when the
?st of its transportation reaches its
mluo. These distances, therefore, aro
imits within which corn and wheat may
je transported by tho ordinary wagons
rho establishment of railroads has had
;he effect of enlarging the circle in which
;he wheat and corn may be transported
by land, and yet retain a commercial
iralue. If the cost of moving grain by
rail be put at one anda hair cents per
;on per mlle, and the same prices pre
vail, corn may be woved 1,600 miles and
wheat 3,200 miles , without exhausting
foe value of tho grain. It will be seen,,
therefore, kays Poor, in his manual of
raib-oads, that " the area of a circle, with
1 radius of 125 miles, ?R 49,087 square
miles; that of a circle drawn upon a
radius of 1,600 miles ls about 160 times j
greater, or 8,042/06 square miles. Such ]
? difference, enormous as it is, only |
measures'the value of-the new agencies ?
employed in transportation, and the re-1
snits achieved, compared with the old'
In bther words, the distance which corn
may bo moved by ordinary means ove?
an ordinary highway is 125 miles, and
the distance by rail LS 1,(500 miles. The
importance of the rato ol' transportation
by rail to. the producer of corn will be
readily perceived when it .is remember-.
ed that'every addition to the rate of one '.
and a half cents per ton per mile dimin
ishes tho distance to which the com may
be carried. If the rate be reduced tb
ono cent per ton por milo, then the corn
may be carried 2,400" miles*: if, however,
tho rate be put at two cents par mile!
then it can ouly be taken 1,200 miles. In
all those cases it is assumed that the
price is 75 cents per bushel.
The prices of corn arid wheat are regu
lated and controlled by the prices in
Liverpool. That is to say, the price in
Liverpool is the maximum, and thc price
at all points back tb the place of produc
tion is the same, less the.cost of trans
portation. The low price of corn pro
hibits its transportation by rail for any
considerable distance, and hence the
great value of the cheaper transportation
afforded by lake and canal navigation".
But this corn and wheat have to be
brought to Chicago by rail, and, assu
ming the average distance to be 250
miles, tho importance of the rate per
mile becomes evident. Thus a car con
cains 10 tons, or 357 bushels of corn. . If J
corn is selling in Chicago at 40 cents per
bushel, which was the average yester
day, we have the following results on a
car-load of corn :
250 miles at 1J cts. per mile per ton $3750
250 miles at 2 cents per mile per ton 5000
J50 milesat2? cts. per mile.per ton (52 50,
250 miles at 3 cents per mile per ton 7500
These rates would make the charge
per bushel at 10i, 14, I7i, and 21 cents
per bushel from the point of shipment
to Chicago, leaving the producer for his
corn the difference between that rate and
the selling price in Chicago. This mar
gin, or tho commercial value ot the corn
in the hands of the prod ucer, is enlarged
ir reduced as the price rises .or falls in
Wo have- compiled at the rates prevail
ing on Tuesday last,' at noon, tho follow
ing schedule of the cost of moving wheat
from Chicago to Liverpool, where, at the
ame dato, wheat was selling to arrive at |
ll shillings 10 pence, or 8193 per bushel :
storage, inspection, etc., Chicago; 2|;
lake insurance, lc; freight to B?llalo,
i4c ; charge* at Buffalo, lie; canal
reigbts, 12c; New York charges, 4c;
)cean freights, (14d,) in currency, 32c;'
)cean insurance,- shrinkage, etc., and
marges In Liverpool, Hie; total cost ol
transportation from Chicago to Liver
pool, 78ic ; selling price in Chicago, ?114;
otal $l!)2i. ThLs is the cost of transpor
tation where the rail is only, used to reach
.vater navigation. Assuming the dis
tance from Chicago to New York by rail
0 be 1,000 miles, the freight would cost,
ncludiiig inspection and storage here,
ibout 47c per bushel, against the 30jc by
ako. Thc lake freights, however, are
lither than usual. Any addition by the ]
.iulroad companies to the rate of ore and
1 half'cents pur ton per. mile would pro
jortiouately increase the adequate cost
>f moving tho wheat from Chicago by
.ail to New York.
The two pressing ovils which directly
ifi'ect tho producers of corn and-wheat j
ire, (1J the inadequacy of tho lirio canal

ailroada for bringing this grain to*Chi

raet tho question hus been settled by
lie India Government after three years

Knits ol' the system :
" By the over land mail advices from

The proceedings of the National Nar
ow Gauge Convention, held in St. Loni?,
