What the Legislature of this State has Done.
A correspondent of the Abbeville Ban
ner proposes that the following series of
resolutions be adopted, and says that
they if privately ad'.pted, may be an ef
fective as if they had passed at a public
meeting, and been backed by a dozen
1. Resolved, That we recognize the
principle that a just debt imposes a mor
al as well as a legal oblig1tion upon the
debtor, from which he can only be re
leased by making full satisfaction of its
demnands, or by consent of the creditor'
2. Resolved, That whilst we discoun
tenance all idea of the repudiation of
debts as immoral, unjust and subver.ire
of the plainest principles of fair dealing.
we hold that the indiscriminate sucicng
a::d pressing the collection of debts on
the part of creditors at this time is equal
ly demoralizing, and fraught with grea
ter danger to the good order of society,
and to the best interest of the State.
3. Resolved, That we looked in vain i
to the Legislature of the State for some
measures of relief, For bread they gave
us a stone, for a fish they gave us a ser
pent. We now look hopefully to the
people, and believe that by the exercise
of a liberal spirit of forbearance and com
promise on the one part and by strict
integrity on the other, we may yet pass
safely and honorably through our pres
4. Resolved, That we approve the ac
tion of the Legislature of Georgia, in
providing for the payment of debts in
annual installments, and in securing to
the insolvent debtor a homestead and
means of support. That we look upon
such legislation as wise, beneficient, and
dictated by sound policy ; that we be
lieve the people of the State would ac
cept and cheerfully acquiesce n similar
action by our own Legislature, and give
to the measures-the sanction of highest
5. Resolved, That next to the blessings
of Heaven upon the efforts of our people,
we believe that the happiness and pros
perity of the State depends upon the pa
triotism of the creditor class of her citi
zens. By their forbearance they would
eacourage industry, by their acquies
enee they can modify constitutions, and
make the laws conform to the exigencies
of the time.
Resolved, That under present. circum
stances-despoiled by the ravages of war
and struggling for very existence-it
would be nothing short of refined cruelty
to let loose upon us the rough soldiers ofi
the law, and wrest from us the little
which remains. This we might endure
if it released us fromn their power, but
we could not stand by and see that little
sacrificed to satisfy the greed of a ruthless
creditor, our *ives and children forced
to beggary and ourselves yet crushed be-!
neath a load of debt.
ReDIcA. MONEY CO3MING SoUTH.-The
New York Post, in commenting upon
the politics of Tennessee, says:
Tennessee is far away from us. Our
people are not familiar with all the de
tails of the struggle for political ascen
dency which has been -going on there.
But it is necessary that we should take a
lively interest in it. Money is needed
-there for the loyal press, which are vigo
rousiy and ably conducted ; our ablest
and most effective public speakers should
go down there to address the people ;
Northern journals and documents should
be sent down there to all who will read,;
in short, it is the duty, as it is the inter
est, of the Republican party to make
Tennessee, during this winter, spring
and summer, the intellectu-l battle
ground on which, with voice and pen,
we may assert and maintain the ideas
which must prevail over the greatest
part of this country before we can have a
real peace, and which are there the di
r-ect issues in the poli.tical canvass. In
Tennessee we have an opp rtunity to as- I
sert republican principles b:fore the
Southern people by our etlest speakersi
and writers. We trust the energies of!
the Republican organization will be
-turned in that direction, and that be
twreen now and next August the State
will be as thoroughly canvassed by
Northern men as any one of the Northern
States was during the last summer and
A GooD S'ToRY.-A friend at a town
down in the country somewhere near
Bowling Green, tells the following: A
short time ago a couple of medical stu
dents disinterred a subject a short dis
tance from town, dressed it, sitting up
right on the seat of a covered wagon, e
*and started for borne. Coming to a tav
era and seeing the barroom lighted up,
they left the wagon and went in for a
drink. The hostler observed the man
sitting alone in the cold, attemp ted some
conversation, but receiving no answer,
he decoveredi how the affair stood, and I
instantly resolved to have a little fun oft
his own on the occasion. So taking the
corpse to a stable, he put on its over
coat and cap, and seated himself in the
wagon. The students soon returned ~
and took their seats by the side of the
supposed dead man, when one of themt
in.merrliment gave him a slap on the
face say ing.
"How would you like some flip oldI
fellow?" then remarked tremulously, tot

"So would you be," replied the corpse,~
"if you had been stolen from hell, as I
have been !"

turned to inquire for the horse and wag

day, when the joke came out.-Louis

Mr. Superintendent Sloan, of the G. &

for courteous favors rendered.
The appearahce of our paper is not by
any means satisfactory, but we cannot
help it. The paper upon which we are
forced to print is very poor, hard,
ridgy and far from white, and all these
bad causes combine to affect the print,

In too great a hurry !
In arswer to a polite request the other
day that an advertising account, con
tracted during last fall, be settled, we re
ceived in reply "you are in a terrible
hurry with your little account, and its
only - dollars and - cents! why what's
the matter?" Matter! this is the mat
ter ! dear, benighted, void of understand
ing, delinquent reader; our business is
made up of just such little amounts, and
we need them all, to pay for paper, rent,
hire of hands, food, fire wood, etc., etc.,
which have to be paid for cash down.
Therefore we are in a hurry, and are
forced to collect closely. When the fact
is patent, that our terms are cash, cash
down, no reasonable man should object
to our hurry ; and when, as it happens
often, we recede from our rule, and favor
some one, on a faithful promise to settle
soon, and that promise is broken, the
individual is decidedly unreasonable, if
not worse, who thinks us in a hurry af

portunity of seeing and dunning him.

We know of no better plan to suggest
to put a stop to this second St. Barthol
omew's passacre, this Iniquitou., indis
criminate, wholesale purpose of suing,
than that each man indebted pay a part
of his indebtedness, whereever he can
conveniently do so. Honor and human
ity require it. Some there at-e who can*
pay all, many half, and others only a
portion. Let each one pay h, portion,

they must be who would require the
whole. Let us try it, start it an; .:ay,
and if it fails it cannot be worse, but if
success crown it, confidence will soon
take the place of mistrust, and a rebound
at once felt which will give new life and
energy to every walk of life. There is
money in the country, but unequally di
vided, arid in many cases hoarded
with a terrible tenacity,'it is hugged up

minate squeezing of the legal pincers
might do good here. On the other hand,
the honest, crippled man, of small means
must be ruined if pressed for more than
he can honestly to himself and family
pay.: The man who forces a claim, know
ing that his unfortunate debtor will have
to go by the board, let him be anathema.
Let us for humanity sake have no suing,
this is no time for it, any other would be
better ; take a present part, and pay a

Who did all this? Poor pitiable object

this civil ruin ? Has he read his Bible ?
Does he remember the parable of the two

importance, and with the net-work of rail

THEIR FEET.-The ladies of Augusta
are noted for their pretty little feet.
The Macon ladies are so handsome in

eyes to straggle to their feet. The fasci

you must be Do;tor. Our reason for
noting the feet of our Augusta ladies was
given in the p-tragraph, a portion of
which you have quoted. It was to ob
serve the agility of the dear little gazelles.
You never saw a pretty foot that did not
belong to one "handsome in face and
form." The foundation perfect, the

Blow on gentlemen, so you blow not
up the ladies. Onr sympa thies are yours
however, in that we can boast of smaller,
daintier feet over here. The following
description of Psyche's feet admirably
gives you a faint idea of what we enjoy:
Her feet, they are so small,
So delicate her tread,
Daisies do not bend at all -
WVhen she walks overheadi~
But each looks up, and falls In love
With Psychie's tiny feet above.

Rail Road from Chester S. C., via Newberry to
Here is a line of Rail Road, which any
one can see, by consulting a map of
South Carolina, would be an important
connection for travel either North or
South. It would not only be important
for travel in the directions indicated but
there is a large extent of country, em
bracing the North-western part of S. C.,
ar.d Western North Carolina, which
would be placed by the building of this
line of Road, in such a position that the
people could send their produce either to
Columbia and Charleston, or to Augusta
and Savannah Ga. There have almost
always been serious complaints of high
charges for freight, on the Rail Roads of
this State, especially in relation to freights
to and from market. By the route of
the Rail Roads the people are compelled
to use thcpa.l; now running to Cobn;
'oia and Ch;;,;ston for transportation,
without any choice as to any other Road.
It is clear -tlrat if the Road suggested at
the head of this article wer e in existence,
the people, along the line of the Road,
and North-west and West of it, would
have a chQjee to go to either of the mar
kets suggested. The portion of country
between the line of Road and the mnoun
tains is not by any means a poor coun
try. A bundance of grain is grown there,
Cotton is no stranger to the soil, great
facilities of water power exist, sufficient
to drive any kind of machinery, and it is
well known that there are Iron Manufac
turers there and have been for years
Let there be facilities for reaching not
only one market, but different markets,i
and there would spring up 'in active and
irrepressible energy which would devel
op the resources of the State, and by
these means enrich the people. It is
not to be expected that the State would
grow rich in a day, but something would,
in this way, be done to repair the disas
ters of the recent war, and the founda
tion would be laid for a permanent pros
perity for this part ouf the country. By
these mneans; the people of the upper
part of this State and of Western North
Carolina would be benefitted, and they
would, in time, communicate to others,
a portion of the benefits they have thus
received. TVhe good conferred would be
mutual, and the prosperity which would
thus grow up would be permanent.
We shall occ.asionally devote a few
thoughts to this in.portant subject; be
eause it is of vital interest to the State.
ADvERTISING.-We commend the fol
lowing from the Louisville Courier, to
our non-advertising friends:
"A merchant of this city told us, yes
terday, that an advertisement of a par
ticular article, he put in the Courier, a
few weeks since, iealized for him a profit
of exceeding $1,000 on orders received
from the countr y from p)arties who had
never before purchased of hitm, and
whose custom was secured solely by the
advertisement which appeared exclusive
ly in the Courier. There are .others of
our merchants who might profit by this
example, and make a good many extra
dollars for themselvyes."
SENsJBL.-The Waynesboro' Times
says: "There can be no better time
than now to urge upon our farmers the
very great importance of their planting
a large corn crop. Let them make a suf
ficiency of Cotton in ordet- to bring
greenbacks into the country, but let
them not neglect the corn, oats, or any
thing adapted to our soil and climate,
that will aid in feeding the people and
promoting the growth of domestic ani
muals. Don't~depend on making Cotton,
and then buying provisions with the
mhoney from the West, but make your
own entables, and some to sell to your
les fortunate neighhor."

whom a liberal compensation will be al

condition of the editorial liver, together
with a desire for a little more ease after

to seek for help, regardless of pecuniary
consideration. Fightings without if ac

will leave us no fears within. We will
still however attend to such little jobs as

third Congressioaal Dlstrict of this State, in
the United States House of Representatives.
Feeling as I do that no good citizen will at
any time, when called upon, refuse to serve
his country, I accept the nomination.
Should the choice of my countrymen fall
upon me.at the present time, hedged in, as
we are, upon all sides, by great perils not
only to our State, but to the Republic, all
I can promise is a faithful discharge of my
duty, and that no effort will be spared upon
my part to bring back our noble old com
monwealth to her former position and pros
I remain very respectfully,
Your obedient servant.
