Vuip to England. Mr. Harvey Allen 01
BfcJ", aa English capitalist, has written to
Governor Hagoo 1 from Lynchburg, Va.,
t?mt several British moneyed men are pre
pared to,embark in the business of export
ing yocrg rattle from the South Atlantic
States to thc pastures of Great Britain,
and asks that tho Governor inform him
jf possible before he returns to England,
kew many young cattle, from one to two
years old, could be annually famished at
'tat S'ooth Carolina ports, the class of an
ima'j. usually bred, the average price, the
prevalen?" of any disease, and any other
information thi* may be obtained. Mr
O'.v.ty alludes to the Agrarian troubles in
Great Brits'e as affecting most seriously
the farming interest of the nation, and be
ll tves that the meat supply needed may
be furnished at IrFs co?t and preater profit
by f-xporting from the South young cattle
and grazing them on the high priced lands
of the Kingdom than in producing them
on such lands. He refers, also, to the
btnefit to the South by the establishment
of direct steam trade to Great Britain,
wbich would be a consequence of the
progress of the enterprise.
Governor Hagood has referred the letter
for reply to Commissioner of Agriculture
Butler, rho will be giad to obtain data on
.lohn F. Hobbs.
There were those who predicted last fall
when John F. Hobbs announced his "in
dependent" candidacy for the solicitorship
ot this circuit that he would within a year
be evolved into a Radical. He at that
time averred that bis Democracy was un
surpassable and unimpeachable. Those
who so predicted are surprised to-day at
the sudden fulfillment of their prophecy,
when they seo Ibis unimpeachable Demo
crat endeavoring to renew the rusty chains
whim have fallen from the State, and his
;U.'tiy association and dallying with the
dirtiest and most unprincipled of the ne
gro politicians with whom the State is
vet unhappily afflicted.
" It is said that these accusations which
Hobbs is concocting have been in several
instances signed by one set of negroes as
.witnesses', and that when the Democrats
?ave appeared fer examination another
??et bf Bablo affiants have appeared in their
'itead and sworn precisely to the same ef
.<f?c:. It.is also said that there is such a
gameness in the chargeB as to lead to the
belief that they are mado wholesale and
afterwards filled in with the names of the
*ffonders ?s i hey may happen to turn up.
Of course an obliging colored friend hav
ing been posted, would not object lo testi-1
fy of his own knowledge as to the truth
of these charges.
' And so it goes. Mr. Hobbs is credited
with an ambition to secure a fat place un

Senator Callisou's Speech on the Bili
to Prohibit the Hiring Out of
MR. PRESIPEKT: I think it is time that
the State should define lier policy in re
gard to tbe convict labor of the ?State, if
it be our intention'fo make the most mon.
ey out of them in the" shortest possible
time, then it would le best to let them out
? on sealed proposals to the highest bidder.
But. I do not think that that would be
wise statesmanship, as it would only bene
fit the individual .ontractor, without any
corresponding benefit to the Sta'e, We,
should rememter that we have a State to
build up, and if we desire to place South
Carolina abreast of the other States of ?
this Union, we must.take a broad, liberal
and comprehensive view of our condition.
We have to-day more undeveloped terri
tory than any of the original thirteen
States of the Republic. Out of nineteen
millions of acres, we have in cultivation
only five millions; and in a commonwealth
capable of maintaining five millions of
inhabitants, wc have only one million. If
we look-at these figures, and regard them
as we-should, we will go to work like men
determined to build up our waste places,
"and make the world better for having
lived in it." The experience of the civi
lized world has taught us, that the only
way to prevent crme is to punish tlie
criminal; and the surer the detection and
the swifter the punishment, the less crime
will be committed. -I have no sympathy

over the wretch who would rob a maa on

property thus destroyed is not only lost to
the victim, but it is lost to the County,
lost to the taxable property of the State :
aud as all tai payers have a taxable in
terest in the property of their fellows, it is
but sisjple justice that these criminals,
t'iese destructives, should be made r.s far
ai practicable to build up that which they
have so maliciously and wantonly destro
ed. For that purpose, I would farm then
ont to all the new Railroads projected, or
that are being built, fur in no other way
can we so well dispose of this labor, or re
' cuve a larger return of taxable property
and population for the:State. Every mile
of Railroad completed, adds eight or ten
thousand dollars to the* wealth., of thc
State, beeides the enhanced value of the
Linds on either side ol the road. In my
County we have a practical illustration of ]
the developing tendency of Railroads.
Lock at that section over which the Char
lotte, Columbia (fe Augusta Railroid runs,
once lovely in its native drearini-ss, new
s'udded with beautiful farms and villas,
the homes of prosperity and refinement.
Besides, four or fi ve enterprising and thrifty
Villages nestle on the bosom of that cele
brated* plateau, whose influence reaches
the remotest bounds of our County. We
n-?ed more such, with their schools, church- j
e3 and refined society, to weld our people
into one moral, homogeneous masi.
Now, Mr. President, what dops tliis bilj
propose to do? To huddle six or seven
hundred unskilled convicts wuuin the
walla of the penitentiarv, where they must
be fed and clothed at the expense of the
^taxpayers of the State, and be unprofitably
employed, if employed at ail. According
to the report of the Directors, there has
been a daily average of 280 prisoners
within the wails of the penitentiary du
ring thc last year; and notwithstanding
they had the joint earnings of all within,
and over two hundred hired ont, the State
appropriated to that institution, in round
numbers, forty-five thousand dollars, which
clearly proves that the talk of profitably
working them within the penitentiary
walls is mere twaddle.
But, Mr. President, it is -aid by thc
friends of this Bili, that Railroad corpora
tio.is and their overseers maltreat these
convicts. In answer to that I would sayi
th-i State has as much power to enforce
th-drgood treatment in building up these
permanent highways, a3 shebas anywhere
else within her borders. I would piace all
those safeguards around them that human
agencies can devise; I woold have them
well fed, clothed, and moderately worked
with good medical attention when sick -:
and any one who would inhumanly abuse
them, should be punished by the courts
But if we pass this Bil!, we will stop all
these roads that are now struggling- hero
ically against great odds, to develop tl o
resources of our State. I have no direct
interest in any of these enterprises ; but I
do want to see our gallant old State abreast
ol the times and bounding forward into
that linr.tless prosperity that can be co
erced by limitless activity and unconquera
ble enterprise. I greatly desire to see our
people prosperous, happy and contented,
and to that end I have devoted my life.
Therefore, Mr. President, and gentlemen
of the Senate, I trust-, this Bill will not pass
Br. Strom's Bill.

Oar If ext Governor.
An Anderson man confidently states
that Hon. B. F. Crayton, the present
State Senator from that County, will
be our next Governor. Mr. Crayton
is a man advanced m years, and stands
high as a business man and experi
mental farmer. He is no politician ;
and if he is our next Governor it will
be one instance in Soutu Carolina of j
toe "office seeking the man.'" One
obstacle in Mr. Cray ion's way is the
fact that he lives in the up-country, |
which will not exactly suit the "ring."
We have not examined his record
and do not know how much cnn be
said against him ; but if he actually
runp, he will find ont before hp -is
elected that th? best of men are not
free from newspaper comment. We
wish him gcod lock.-Abbeville Me

Probability of an Extra Session.
. The opinion prevails that upon the
expiration ot the present Congress
the new Congress will immediately
convene. Thi following reason is
given for this opinion :
There is some reason to fear that
th : dilatoriness of Congress before
therecess may lead to au extra ses
sion. There will be ouly fifty-eight
days between the 5th ol Janua.-y,
when the hoiiday vacation cioses, and
the 4th of March, when the 4Gih
Congress expires. Eight Sundays
and' the holiday of Washington's
birthday will reduce the number of
working days below fifty. Soma of
these threaten to be wasted in the
dispute over the proper method of
counting the electoral votes. Al
though the Democrats in the House
have reached no conclusion on the
subject, it is generally expected that
the joint rule wili be brought up af
ter the recess and a determined at
tempt be made to secure its passage.
The Republicans appear as much in
clined to fight off any action as ever,
aad if both parties maintain this at
titude there will be a deadlock. The
funding bill will consume some time,
as the Senate will very likely amend
the bill in some important particu
lars" arid send it back to the House.
Then there are the important ap
propriation bills, which UsuaUy coii
snme about as much time ns will be
left after the two houses meet again.
It will thus be seen that- some of
the apprehensions lest-som? of the
necessary bills may Lot pass aud au
extra session be required are not
irfiTontrded. The Democrats are ut
terly opposecTto an extra session, and
most of the Republicans feel the same
way, but the frieuds ofthe candidates
for all the House positions anxiously
desire lo have the new Congress meet
in March, so that they can begin to
draw their pay right away. Other
wise the Democrats who now fill these
places will retaiu them until next
December. Then there are sorn? Re
publicans who want to have Congress
meet in the spring, so that commit
tees can be appointed to go South
and investigate alleged election frauds
during the period before the opening
of the regular session in December.
Whether these elements will be strong
enough to force an extra session it*is
too early to tell, but there is some
reason to fear it.
The New Secretary of the Navy.
The. President, cn the G;h, sent to
the Senate the nomination of Nathan
Goff, Jr., of West Virginia, to be
secretary of the navy. The nominr
tion of Gen. Goff caused general sup
prise except to the few who knew of
the President's intention to make it.
When the nomination was presented
to the Senate, Gen. Golf was in the
Capitol in the room of the Senate com
mittee on appropriations. He is a
native of West Virginia residing at
Clarksburg. He was colonel of ihe
Third Virginia regiment in the Un
ion army and rose t the rank of
brigadier t'?neral. During the war
he earned tue reputation of a gall.tnt
and able commander. Ile his been
United States district attorney ol
West. Virginia for twelve years. Four
years ago he was the Republican nora
inee for Governor and, it ?3 said, ran
ahead of his ticket considerably, but
was of course beaten by the Demo
cratic nominee, Governor Matthews.
The nomination of Gen. Goff is be
lieved to settle tho disposition of the
navy department in Gen. Garfield's
Cabinet. He had every prospect ol
keeping-Ids place as district-attorney
of West Virginia, 'L.he wo nf PI! M
andie \9uuiu hardly resign a twelve
thousand? dollar office to take a seat
in the Cabinet if he did not expect
to hold it longer than for the fig end
of the administration. Everything
indicates that his appointment was
approved by Gen. Garfield, and that
he will be continued in the position
for the next four yeara. This will re
cognize the claims of the Southern
Republicans, aod especially those of
West Virginia, while it will prevent
the charge of church influences and
prejudices, which the selection of so
prominent a member of Garfield's
denomination as Campbell would
have provoked. The new secretary
of the navy is about 44 years old and
looks even younger.
