The present Co ress has had a
great deal to s about Southern
war eias. inace'. a Ta(ge pa'
Ctr 1i time has been ocCnied in
diseassng tis subject. T)e R.
nublicans have done all they co(
te encon rage it in hopes of creating
a runture between the Northern
and Southern Democrats. When
IDra--, a flat-headed Democrat from
the St"te of Missouri, made his
laing speech against Southern
war claims, protesting against pay
Ino any of them. and prophecying
that the Southerners would next
ask for pensions and pay for slaves
lost on account of the "late rebel
lion," the Republicans thought the
issue had come, and expected a
family row. But when Ben Hill, of
Georgia, a Democrat and a South
erner of the straitest sect, got up
and out Dragged Bragg, their hopes
were disappointed. Hill declared
that the real, true Southern people
have always been opposed to the
government's paying such claims,
save in a few exceptional cases;
that those who presented such
claims declared themselves always
"loval" to the Federal goveinmen t;
and that such persons have no sym -
pathy from the people at large-in
sho-rt that those whom the South
erners would like to see reimbursed
for property destroyed were not
"ioval" and therefore can get no.
thing ; and that they have no desire
to see the "loyal" ones reimbursed.
ThIe 1-4th instant a bill was pre
sented to pay Juo. .J. Armstrong

ment of his wharf at Alexandria,

Keifer, Republican, of Ohio, crit.
icised Butler's speech, and asked
whether he favored pensioning
Butler replied-I repeat that
whenever the depletion of the treas
ur by these claims is over, I think
that the pity, the humanity of the
orth will take care of the maimed
of the war, and (if vou wish to know
i) I see no more reason v:hy a Con
federate soldier, maimed and crip
pled in the honest discharge of what
he believed to be his duty, should
not be pensioned than why a Con
federate General (referring to Post
master General Key) should be put
into a Republican Cabinet.
Aiken, of South Carohina, de
clared himself opposed to all South
ern war claims. He was glad to
.ear thIat some miembers onl the
Republican side were liberal enough
'to vote compe)fnsationl for damiages

same month of 1878. immigration
is largely on the increase. Of a~ll
this number scarcely any have come
South. The true reason of this is,
not the 'unset lied state of affairs,
but the fact that these white for

in this they are wise. They cannot

The cotton crop amounted to

was Si~ cents per pound. The value
of the crop was $194,700,000. In
1877 the number of bales was
4,750,000-450,000 less than in

thus seen that too munch cotton

J0udge Alrich rendered a very

q"uestion of homlesteau exemption.
Without giving the names of par

fendant moved the Trial Justice for
an order of reassignient on the
ground that the corn, fodder, bacon

i.o hia zfs exempt. The Trial Jus
tice decided against him, holdlng
that these articles were not exempt
except when the products of a
homestead ; that these articles were
not the yearly products of defend
ant's homestead. because he owned
no real estate, and that they were
not exempt as personal property
because they are not among the ar
ticles enumerated as exempt in the
Cons'itution.. The defendant ap
pealed to the Circuit Court. Judge
Aldrich sustained the appeal, hold
ing that the personal property of a
debtor of every description to the
ci,1oiunt of $500 is exempt. We
learn that the judgment creditor
proposes to appeal to the Supreme
Court. That Court has alread, one
or more cases Jf an exactly similar
character before it. Its decision is
awaited with interest.
In to-day's issue is a coinmunica
tion from F. Werber, Jr., Clerk of
the Board of County Commission
ers, in reply to that portion of the
Grand Jury's presentment relating
t o the building of the line fence. The
Grand Jury simply stated that the
price paid for the fence from Broad
River to Mr. Dominick's Little
Mountain place was high :they
made no charge or insinuation of
anything wrong in the transaction,
but ask a reconsideration-"if pos
sible." The County Commissioners
say that they took the lowest
bid they could get ; that it was~
not their fault that the price :s hig:h,
and that it is not possible to recon
sider the contract.

M:ssus. EmTious: A great many
of our citizens have been puzzled,
since the trand Jury made its present
men. to kniow wa h onyCm
mils ioers wouIld dio in regard to thle

of the conttraeCters them aselves asking
wther or not the Couty still pro
peUSK to complyV with the terms of its
cotractsM. In reply to this question
I :a iauthorizecd to aus-wer, yes. lloW

I admit that the prices agreed to be
paid for somec portions of this fence
upon a. ca nal observationa may seem
h igh, yet when C you consider that this
fnce will have to be kept in repair

that lg and widely swelling creeks
have to be crosed; and, too, when the
pice.2 paid byv other Counties on simini
lr contracts are compared with ours,
heni I thinl: that this great terror
that seized thle G rand .Jury will be
displed, and that then its memtbers

Why were ntot someC of these coam
plainers present at Alston to take coi
tracts, or to force others down to
lower prices, if the contracts arc too
high ? Thei y were certainly invited
through your advertising columns to
be with us. and the County Commtiis
sioners are ia no wisc to blame that
they were nIot there. I am sure that
the Comrmissioners would have been
more thaiu pleased to have awarded
the building of this fence to any one
of them for even one dollar less than
the present contract.
To so muech of the presentment as
regards the price paid I have niothting
further to say; but when the Grand
Jury recomnmended a "reconsidera
tion of the contract," and this too
without the consent of the parties who
have taken contracts, I itust add that
this portio)n is simply puerile.
