much cheaper, that we will capture
that market by driving New England

the State can give, and decidedly to

lumbia is having her canal built at
the expense of the State, by convict
labor, and now will not Sen at ora open
their big hearts to help the bone'and
si jew to increase the taxable prop?; ty
of this State by creating property
that will be immediate in its results
in reducing taxa'ion? The increase
of taxable property since 1S77' has
only been fifteen millions of dollars;
but with a wise, progressive policy,
it, no doubt, would have been .twice
that amount. Rail Roads are imme
diate in their developing tendency.
They increase the great ^arteries of
commerce, disregard distance,, and
bring remote places into market at
increased value and profit to the State.
Then, Mr. President, I say let us
use this convict labor, not in digging
phosphates or making shoes and red
stockings, to increase the wealth of
individuals who belong to the privi
leged class that pay no tax to the
State, and Bend all they make by our
credulity out of it. It is time for us

This road has been surveyed along i
entire proposed route, which extent
from Aiken, S. C., to London, Ky ,
distance of more than 400 miles i
?lmost an air line. In 1832 the com
puny was formed by the consolidate
of five independent railroad corpora
tiona in the States of South and Nort
Carolina, Tennessee, and Kentucky
the franchises granted to each of th
five comr nie? being transferred t
the consolidated company. The stock
holders of the consolidated rail wa;
are the stockholders of the origina
companies. A majority of the stool
is held in South Carolina, has beei
nearly all paid up, and has been ex
pended in surveys and constructioi
in this State. Of the 125 miles o
the South Carolina division of thc
railway, 50 miles are graded. Whei
the consolidation was effected a con
tract was made with the Atlanth
and North- Western Construction Com
pany, of New Jersey, for the building
and equipment of the entire line fron
Aiken to Loudon, Ky., the construe
tion company to be paid in bonds o;
the railway company.
But it was stipulated by the con
struction company that it should not
be compelled to commence work until
a contract was made for the sale ol
the bonds of the railway c .mpany,
the construction of the railway thus
being made to depend entirely upon
the prior negotiation of the sale of
its bouda. A financial agent was ap
pointed and sent to England, where
he is now trying to uegotiati the
bonds of the company. In spite of
the depressed condition of railway
securities, he has succeeded in at ract
ing the attention of capitalists who
are able to float the bonds of the
road, and who will take hold of the
enterprise as soon as them ia a reac
tion in railwsy matters. The com
pany has determined to raise money
enougb. to finish the grading and to
trestle and cross tie the road from
Aiken to the mountains bvi securing
the subscriptions of towns, townships,
and counties interested in the road to
the capital stock of the company.
These ubscriptions will be made by
a popular vote and will be collected
by pecial taxation. The road, when
completed, will bring Chicago 170
m<les nearer to Charleston than any
other route, and will open up one of
the richest agricultural, mineral, and j
manufacturing sections of country in
the South. I

WASHINGTON, January 24 - Senaj,
or M. C Butler, of South Carolin?
had a very lively set to with Senatth
Edtnundsduringihe executive session
When the Senate w s coneideiing tht
nomination of Emory Speer .to be
United States Distiict Attorney foi
Georgia, Butler opposed the nomtn-i?
don on the ground that Speer had
acted uu/airly in the prosecution ol
the South Caroiina sleet.on cases
Senator Edmunds made a very crusty
speech, in which he dwelt upon the
mortification he felt at the failure r?
the trials. *He desciibed with biting
humor Speer's imprudence iu crossing
the line and venturing upon the sacred
soil of South Carolina. He then went
on to describe the trials as a farce,
and said that Speer, as the special
counsel for the Government, had been
openly insulted in court by Youmnns,
the chief counsel for the defence.
Youmans was a former law partner
of Senator Butler, and Butler at once,
sprang to his defence. He said thal
the Vermont Senat >r had been misin '
formed and misled by certain news j
paper publications upon the subject
He (Butler) was present duaojf th^
trial and could give evidence rebuk
ing the charge. ' \
Edmunds then said that he^had
written a letter to Judge Bond, who
presided at this trial, and that the
Judge had replied that the newspaper
reports of Speer's treatment in court
were substantially correct.
"Then," said Butler, "the Judge
convicts himself of incapacity to prop
erly discharge the dutiea ol his office^ If]
any such thing had occurred it would
have been the duty of tne Judge to
protect the counsel." Butler continued,
saying that the proof that there waa
nothing in these cases iay in the fact
that not a single conviction had re
The Vermont Senator had smiled
grimly at this and said that it must
be remembered that these trials took
place in South Carolina.
"But," said Butler, "you must
also remember that the trials took
place in the United States .Court,
where ihe power o. the Goverment
was represented by unusual means
icr carrying out, a prosecution. You
had the machinery for packing the '
jury in your banda and yet not a sin
gle con.ictiou .was obtained."
Elmnuds then sai l that he had
rt ad the te timony in those cases and
he waa ot the opinion that there
should have beeo convictions.
Buller replied: "It is only your
opinion. I, too, have read the testi
mony, and I tell yon that tiierx ia not
a northern State where a dog would
be convicted upon such testimony."
This sort cf talk went on for tea
or filteen minutes Butler in onf in
stance charged that the Republicano
had bought Speer and that the orine
of District Attorney was given to him
a* the price of bis Dew allegiance.
"Take bim, ' said Butler ''You are
welcome to him."
It was only towards the last of the
spat that Senator Lamar spoke. He
rose for the purpose of explaining why
he should vote for the confirm -dion.
It was in puisuance of bia policy ol
votio^Jor all nominations of the Ad
micis^etio.n^wbere there was nothing
shown to prove disreputable character.
Lama* then uttered one sentence of
comment upon Edmund's criticism ol
Southern State ai?urs He said that
Edmunds had evidently intended to
be as offensive as possible to the
Southern Senators, and that 8 far as
be was concerned be bad thoroughly
succeeded, but he said nothing ab"Ul
severing personal relations. To this
Edmunds made no reply.
The Laie Mrs. Jane Perry Butler.
" Richland," the Columbia corres
pondent of tbe Augusta Chronicle,
speaking of the Nexos and Courier's
admirable dei-ign of securing and
publishing sketches of the expert
encftg of Southern women during the
war, relates the following:
Many of your readers w ill recol
lect the instance of Gen. Butler's
mobber taking the oath at Edgefield

Mathew Oalbrai h Perry, was a Com

a gallant army officer of tbe Revolu
tion. Her husband was a captain in
the regular army prior to the late
war and served his cour try faithfully,
whilst one of bis brothers was a
Ubited States Senator and another
Governor of South Carolina. Mrs.
"Butler, being a widow, found it nec
essary for the proper transaction of
some legal matters to take the hated
oath. The officer who presented her
to the commander of the post, tnink
J^ng to win favor for her with the lit
tle despot of an hour, began to give
him a list of tbe distinguished ineu
with whom she was allied. The no

On Wednesday of last week, Sen

chairmen of standing or select com
mittees of the Senate, shall be entitled
to a clerk or secretary at a salary ol
$1,000 annually, the same to be paid
out ot the contingent iuud of the

he Slid : " I shall not detain the
