Reluse to Take Their Own Pills.
The action of the Board of Trustees of
the South Carolina University, on Fri
day, demands a word at our hands. Had
they simply accepted the resignations of
Drs. Talley, Gibbes and LaBorde, we
should have had nothing to complain of.
But they have accompanied the accep
tance with a statement of satisfaction that
the professors have withdrawn. They
" cannot regret," they say, *' that a spirit
so hostile," <fec., "will no longer be rep
resented in the University." t This com..
moot upon resignations is unheard of in
the history of the College, and, were
there nothing else to show it, demon
strates the degradation to which the in
stitution is tending. The imputation
ind the sin is that the professors resign -
sd on account of the admission of Secreta
ry Hayne as a medical student. How the
lotion of the professors ought to be con
sidered, will-appear more clearly in the
Light of one or two facts which we find it
profitable to recall, and which we com
mend to the consideration of the. board.
This is not the first of Hayne's feats in
ibis way. Being almost white, and yet
representing the black race, he is a good
wedge to open the way for it into new
places. A few years ago, he appeared,
me bright Sunday morning, at the com
munion table of Christ Church, the pul
pit of which was occupied by Rev. Mr.
Babbitt, and the members of which were
principally Northern people resident
1?re and a few natives who particularly
*y m pat hised with them. Upon the ap
iroach of Hayno, a member withdrew,
ihubbub ensued, and the Mission Church
>f Mr. Babbitt went incontinently to
ueccs. No more services were held in
t Tho Northern people-who'Composed
-he congregation would go no more. They

iVhut think you 01 HIM,, ?1_.eura Tr US
ces? And what do you think of Mr.
Babbitt, who caved in so ingloriously ou
li? negro question, at a time aud uuder
-ircumstances when courage and princi
pe were demanded. The negro is strone:
low, and so ?M Mr. Babbitt; but it would
lave beeu considered moro manly any
where else thau in the Radical party, to
lave stood l>oldly by his black brother,
.vhen he more needed recognition and
Again. We have it upon the best au
thority, that a considerable number of
Northern residents here-new and old
joiners-intended to send their sons to
:he College, If it bad not taken tho un
fortunate turn it has. Now that the fore
runner of a black invasion hus gone in,
they havo abandoned that intention.
They were willing to entrust their sons
to Messrs. Barnwell, Rivers, LaBorde,
Faber, &c., upon the prospect of only
white students attending, but are posi
tively determiued to withdraw them
from their successors and their allies,
with the expected irruption of colored
students. Such a disregard of " the wel
fare of the State, as well as of the dic
tates of justice and the claims of our
common humanity," such an unwilling
ness to stand by the colored man and
take him cordially by the hand, on the
part of those Northern people, shows a
lamentable inconsistency between pro
fession and practice. Will the Board of
Trustees think on these things?-Colum
English Emigration to the United
The Anglo-American Times, of Sep
tember 13th, believes that 44 emigration
on a large scale from England to tho
United States" has begun. It Bays 9 The
English agriculturist has found that he
may toil here to better purpose than in
his nativo village, and his expatriation
will steadily increase to large propor
tions." Mr. Geo. Grant has just.taken
a large colony to a tract of 540 square
miles in central Kansas, extending from
Smoky to Salina Valley. R. W. Edis,
F. s. A., latoly President of the Agricul
tural Society of London, lays out tho
central settlement, that is to be called
Victoria City. Scott Skirring, late i res
ident of the Edliuburgh Agricultural
Society, is a colonist, and Mr. Grant has
sold thirty square miles of the land to
gentlemen of distinction-scions of whose
families are to go out by and by. The
London Working Men's Farming Asso
ciation took eight square miles. Some
of the finest English cattle have been
shipped, and Aberdeen bulls are to im
prove Texas stock.
Stone houses have been- erected at $2,
000 and under, and if further examina
tion affirms what has been reported, the
whole tract wi'1, be settled directly.. Mr.
W. W. Clari*e hos gone to San Francisco
in behalf of tba Union Land and Immi
gration Bureau, of London, with a capi
tal of $1,000,000, to be increased to $5,000
000. His scheme is to have the disposition
of 50,000,000 acres in all parts of this
country, placed in the hands of the bu
reau to sell to the emigrant and superin
tend his removal. Thus it is Been that
Virginia is not the only. State which is
now receiving English immigrants.
Those going Into Virginia, however, ap
pear to do so wholly on Individual ac
count, and not through any immigration
bureaus or associations.

The Augusta Onhan Asylum.
During a late sojotrn in Augusta we
went to the now Orphn Asylum to visit
an esteemed young riond and towns
woman now occnpyii?an honorable and

dom have we. been 3 struck with the
material grandeur, tb beautiful domes
tic order, tho wise am efficient govern
ment, and the high ad holy aims, of an
eleemosynary instituon. The old Asy

and now, amileoutoiowr, on the Geor

Orphan Asylum-the andsomest ed i fice
we presume, in Gwgia. If there is
another as handsome.ve do not know ol
it It is of brick, fi\ stories in height
and of vast proportits,."with Mansard
roof, iron columns, pilcos and veran

for cleanliness, comi? and luxury. To
go through this nob building ; to see

so clean, so bright, soappy, so conscien

lives-but who othe/ise would be so

wishes well to his ki-a.privilege and

Abraham Lincoln and Compensation
for Slaves. '
Addressing the people of Virginia re
cently, Hon. R. M. T. Hunter said:
"I well recollect that, in the inter
view at old Point Comfort between Mr.
Lincoln and Mr. Seward on the one
hand, and Commissioners of the Con
federate States (of whom I was one) on
the other, this subject of compensation
for the emancipated slaves was introduc
ed by Mr. Lincoln himself. He said
that a prominent citizen of the North
whose name, if given, would probably
surprise us, had written to him to say
that if the slaves were emancipated, the
sum of $400,000,000 ought to be distribu
ted among their former owners by way
of compensation. The money, as weil
as I remember, was proposed to be given
to the States in proportion to the number
of negroes freed within their borderai
and by them to be distributed among
the individual owners. That this would
have been a very inadequate compensa
tion for 4,500,000 slaves is evident to all.
But who can estimate the relief which it
would have afforded to the despoiled and
stricken South; if distributed among
them just after the war, it would have
been of inestimable value. Mr. Lincoln
said he had no authority to speak for
any one but himself, but he himself was
in favor of it. Upon this Mr. Seward
expressed some impatience, saying that
the Government paid enough in the ex
penses of the war, which I suppose he
felt to have been waged for negro eman
cipation-a poor excuse to bo made in
regard to the claims of any of the States,
but none, certainly, in the cases of Ken
tucky, Missouri, Maryland and Dela
ware, which never seceded, and were
njvereven called rebellious. To this,
Mr. Lincoln replied with equal earnest
ness : 'I know you all say that it was
sinful to hold slaves, and, as there was
no right to do so there is no justice in the
claims for compensation. Now,' said
he, 'if it was a sin in the South to hold
slaves, it was a sin in the North to sell
thom, which they did to a very great ex
tent, as we all know.? "
The orator fien spoke at some length
to prove this last assertion of Mr. Lin
coln, quoting in its support from Mr.
Dabuey's- "JDol'ense of Virginia and of :
the South," *nd said: "There was no
point of view in which we could be con- :
iidered as deprived of the claim to com
pensation. If we were still citizens, and :
States within the Union, the spoliation ;
was unconstitutional, and we were cer
iainly eutitled to some compensation for j
iamage sustained. If we were separate |
i.id independent belligerents, such au ,
ict of plunder was not justified by the 1
aws of war, and we were entitled to I
>r>mnflnsatioii upon the precedents of ]
. . . ,...'?.' -i

?pinion, for what sue ??-_. ?
lave boen a great wrong, by throwing
he whole loss and punishment upon
hose whom she accuses of being the re
ipients of the stolen goods.
The United States maj' yet do some
hing, he thinks, for tho relief of the
iouth aud to remove the stain which
nust otherwise rest upon its reputation
jr justice and lair dealing, It can de
osit the amount of $400,000,000 mention
d by Mr. Lincoln, on the principle on
,'hich the surplus revenue s.v. ripoosited
, ith the States. If it should iirv . be
tturned no injustice would be done,
lose who would retaiu it were justly
utitled to it. This would bring great
?lief to the people ol* the South and
euefit the whole country by Increasing
io taxpaying resources of tho South
nd tho trade of tho whole land. Il this,
i-something like it is not done, then
io South will have to work out its own
dvation under u paralelled difficulties.
And shall we not do it?" "Energy,
ape, skill and self denial can accomplish
liracles, and I believe our people pos
iss v\\ these qualities."

j.-New Orleans Herald. &
The organ of the South Carolina Radi
cals-ths Columbia Union Herald-is
sorely troubled because three of the Pro
fessors in the University of the State pre
ferred to resign their position? rather than
teach a colored man who had been admit
ted to the institution. We can see noth
ing in these resignations to excite the ire
of the oigan. On the contiary, they are
the legitimate result0 of attempted amal
gamation in the schools. If the ring gov
ernment of South Carolina thinks that
it can force ?ocial equality upon the whites
.of the State it is vastly mistaken. The
laws of God and of Nature cannot be
changed or abrogated by the edicts of ,a
carpet-bag administration. The powers
which rule and ruin our sister State can,
by the enactment of odious laws and br
the exercise of brute force, make the
schools and colleges of South Carolina ad
mit colored men within their walls, but
I neither laws or physical power can com
pel white students or white professors to
I remain. When the colored men enter the
J whites will retire, and establish institu
tions of their own. The consequence of
this line of policy will be the destruction
of all State schools and universities instead
of benefit to the colored race, as these
philanthropic carpet baggers and scalawags
assert. We do not wish it understood
that we are among those who oppose the
education of the colored people. We be
lieve that they should be educated. We
believe that they should be given equal
advantages with the whites. But we do
not believe in mixed schools. Wherever
they ore attempted harm will come of the
experiment Ihe whites will not tolerate,
th? blacks do not desire them.-Chronicle
A Sad Picture.
It is no longer to be disguised that the
people of the South generally, and of this
State particularly, are quite indifferent, if
not favorably inclined, to the scheme of
continuing Grant in the Presidency for
another term. Ctsarism and centralism
have no terrors to them in the desolate
condition to which they have been brought
by the vain efforts to arrest their march
If their situation can be alleviated, and
there seems to be no other hope, by a sub
mission to any extension and increase of
the power of the federal government, they
will do more than yield such submission
they will rejoice in it. We cheerfully sur
render all claims to any political influence
or participation in the political ontrover
sies and party contests in the nation if
thereby we can have our personal righto
secured as they are in the empires and
monarchies ol' the Old World. Grant
may freely seize the sceptre, if he will on
ly wield it for our protection against out
rages, wrongs and desolation, such as no
Jespot, in modern times, has dared to in
flict upon a civilized people. Protect us
from tue crushing taxation, the wide-spread
irruption, the spoliation and confiscation
which are rapidly sapping the founda
tions of our society and consigning our
neople to poverty and desolation. Save
