The State Grane aon Iin t.
We clip the followit: from the
Greencille News of the Tth alt.:
Dr. James Mcintosh. of Newberry,
then read an essay upon -limigra
tion." He alluded to what had been
done in and for the country by the
immigrants who came here many
years ago, and whose descendants we
are. He deprecated the idea that the
country now could not receive and
aosiwilate izumigration, when it had
done so when it was only a weak be.
ginning. He then discussed the ques
tion as to whether there was room
0_ .. i n this State for Immigrants. He
showed that there were twenty-two
acres of land in this State for every
man, woman and child, and 120 acres
for every actual laborer. In New
York there was 1 1.5 acres for every
inhabitant, in Belgium 11, in En
gland 1, in Germany 31. It would
be seen that . here was an abundanee
of room for our population to be fully
doubled without being crowded. The
Yalue of land increased with popula
tion, and farmers would find that with
a doubled population the value of
their land would be quadrupled, while
a diversification of industries would
be enforced. He then reviewed the
progress of the last few months in
this direction, the scanty appropria
tion by the Legislature having borne
abundant fruit. Five hundred new
inmigrants seemed a small number.
but it was an excellent beginning
especially so when the small propor
tion of inhabitants of fo.eian birth as
, returned by the last census was con
sidered. He then made a number of
suggestions foi- attraction of immi
- grants of a desirable class, advocating
appropriations ' such as would enable
vigorous, useful work to be done, such
as the scattering of pamphlets giv
' full information about our State,
its productions, facilities, soil, climate
and general advantages and attrac
'ens. He suggested that the State
iids be surveyed, cut into forty acre
traots and sold to immigrants at nom
' _nal figures and free from taxation
'.: under certain limitations. He also
-::.suggested that owners of large bodies
of land should offer to sell it in alter-.
nate tracts to immigrants at low rates.
e also uged the need for encourag
,ug immigrants to remain by giving
them an interest in the land and a
respect of owning something that
would' bind them to the soil, and
'- make them feel at home. Alluding
4o the advantages of immigration he
cited the State of New York with 31
per. eent oT foreign born, Minnesota
with 52, and the Republic generally
with '15 per cent. while South Caro
hina had only 8-10 of one per cent.
f she had received her proper propor
tion.ashe would .now have 140,000
nrwhite population, making her
iuere important politically, and laying
the ever rising ghost of the race issue.
He- then centrasted the difference in
material prosperity between the States
6 l concluded by. drawing a strong
'Y' contrast between white and colored
~~ 1abor, demonstrating the superiority
and practical economy of the former.
Col. Lipseomib thought this subject
was the big one before the people, and
~ e hoped it would be thoroughly dis
cussed. He spoke of the curiosity
and interrest shown at the far north
in South Carolina especially, the peo-,
pie saying that they could find out
nothing about the State, even from
her own citizens. Those enquiries
t$"were the origin of the Agricultural
Department. Immigration had been
directed to the Northwest to a great
setent by the prejudice excited
among immigrants against the South,
and' by she powerful efforts of rail~
road corporations desiring their lands
'to be settled. That artificial stimulus
had now partly eeased, and the South
kad a chance to get her shara. What
eort of imgration was wanted?f
Brains, muscle, and money-useful
citizens of all classes. He himself
preferred northern immigrants, al
though he would cordially welcome
What was wanted in South Caro
lna was for every man to take the
same view of this question that the
[ essayist had, and work to get from
the Legislature appropiations to send
ont drummers and documents at the
- North and across the water to attract
immigrants. The railroads were anx
Sions to obtain immigrants for la
borers. and wanted the people to help
them by providing employment and
homes for the immigrant women and
~2 children. He thought the matter of
immigration far too big to be con
ined to a sub-department of the Ag
rieultuiral Department, ,vith an avail
able fund of $10,000.
Col. Boykin, Superintendent of
Immigration, was called upon, and
spoke briefly. He said South Caro
lina could .obtain valuable immigra
Ntion if the people would inform them
selves as -to what they would get.
Four hundred and fifty immigrants
had been settled mostly in families,
the greater part of them being la-*
borers who were hired out just as
other laborers were, the employer ad
vancing the $10 necessary to pay for
the transportation of full grown la
borers to Columbia, and taking it
from the wages. Those desiring such
laborers should be prepared to give
them good shelter, and such food as
they are used to until they become
accustomed to corn bread, as they
-. soon do. The department had done
little to bring immigrants during the
e-xtreme hot weather, bue. would be
* prepared to make good selections of
groups of families ,from August to
October. HIe suggested the forma
tion of clubs in the same neighbor

ilies together, thus preventing them

I found on the train the inevitable
irummer, a product and necessity of ii
:nodern enterprise. He is a character
to study, his cheek is unused to I A
blushes, he has no deadly dread of a
lie, he has that glibness of tongue
that can be acquired only by long and
oarnest practice. There is one thing
he can do, he may be very deficient
in other traits and qualities, but he t
can puff his wares and the particular
rm that it is his predestinated mis
sion to talk up. He has learned long
igo that one way of getting himself
up is to pull others down, and this he h
does without scruple. I have been a
told that there are decent men among ,
them; it may be so, bat surely they
are exceptional cases. That business
must, indeed, be in a bad way which C
hasn't some decent men in it. I a
know from personal observation of j
drummers, if there are foul-mouthed, o
profane, shamelessly indecent people,
these are they. I take it that to be a
drummer is net an easy way to get to C
heaven. Do you think that valise a
contains only samples and wearing j(
apparel ? My dear sir, you are greatly
cuistaken ; there, in one corner, is
ensconced the whiskey flask, and in s
another place the pack of cards, t
:uarked perhaps. Can any one tell
why these four things generally go a
together, profanity, card - playing, t
whiskey-drinking, and general worth
lessness of moral character ? They
are closely allied ; whenever one is i
seen, the other three are not far off. b
And there is no one occupation in a
which all four are so generally found
as in the modern drummer.
The drummer is an example of this a
fact, that men go to waste and ruin, 2
morally, when they are shut out from
home-influences. Honme, and especially
a Christian home, is almost a Para
dise Regained. Its power to restrain
from evil and cultivate and stimulate
the - good cannot be overrated. It is i
one of the most blessed conservative t
influences in this bad world. With
out "Sweet Home," earth would need
no fire, or brimstone, or visible fiends
to make it a hell, not in metaphor '
but in reality.
I reckon that the next time four i
drummers are seated around a square
table ornamented with fifty-two pieces
of pictured pasteboard and a bottle of C
whiskey, they will not give me a i
vote of thanks for what I have here a
said about them.

of Utica when he was only twenty

defeat, but was re-elected to the '

of 1,200. Another re-election to the s

The Lien Law.
It is very probable that the lien
law will he a quos;ion for the next
session of the Legislature. For
years it has been recognized as the
one great drawback to the farming
interests ; but while it is so regard
ed almost universally, there are
many who consider it a necessary
evil. With a homestead law ex
empting every dollar's worth of
property of the small farmer, there
is left to him nothing for a basis of
c.cedit except the privilege of pledg
ing his growing crops. Many far
mers find themselves absolutely
moneyless at the beginning of the
year, and of this number a large
proportion have no means of rais
ing money. They cannot get it
from the Banks, because they can
not find endorsers; they cannot
raise money on mortgages, because
they often have nothing to mortgage.
If it were not for the lien law, what
would they do? Could they plant
and cultivate a crop? This is a
very difficult question. Another
question equally as difficult is, Can
a farmer pay the interest that he is
compelled to pay when he gives a
lien, and save anything ? Is he any
better off at the end of the year
than at the beginning ? If not he
is in a very deplorable condition.
If after working hard year after
year he has nothing to show for it
he is liable to become discouraged
and to give up in despair. We do
not believe that in an-ordinarily
good year a farmer can pay from
20 to 30 per cent.-as they are said
to do on iiens-and make anything
at all. And when a bad year comes
he gets swamped completely. What
then can be done to relieve this
class of the farmers? Should the
lien law be repealed it cuts off their
only means of getting credit.
Should it continue in force it com
pels them to pay a rate of interest
that will eventually bankrupt the
last one of them. They cannot pay
such interest year after year and
make a living ; it is an utter im
possibility. It looks like ruination
either way you look at it. It seems
to us that this matter should be
taken hold of by the Legislature,
and something should be done.
The plan that looks most plausible
is this : that the Legislature pass
a law repealing the lien law, but
not to take effect at once. If the
next Legislature will do this, al
lowing to the first of January, 1883,
for the act to take effect, we believe
it would be a wise measure. It
would give the people time to pre.

Our Washington Letter.
WASHINGTON, D. C.,
July 27, 1881.
As it was here a few days after
July 2nd and 3d, it is now, and so it
has been since Saturday last, the 23d.
Nothing is talked of but the Presi
dent's condition. The relapse of four
days ago followed a period of over two
weeks of confidence in the President's
recovery, and plunged people into a
state of profound anxiety, and though
this is in a measure changed by bulle
tins of the last two days it has by no
means disappeared. So great was the
surprisc here when imminent danger
was announced on Saturday and the
consulting physicians were hastily
summoned, that ii doubt if people in
this city will become confident of the
President's final recovery again until
he is seen on the streets. They have
learned, too, within this week and
apparently upon the best authority,
that as long ago as the 12th of the
month the physicians believed the
President dying-that hc could not
live twelve hours. This fact, if it be
a fact, was cencealed from the people.
One newspaper published a statement
of the kind, but the article which
seems to have been based upon the
information was generally deemed sen
sational. These things, now first gen
erally known here, will serve to per
petuate the uneasiness which is un
questionably general in this city.
Senator Conkling is still here and
ehibits the solicitude felt by all as to
affairs at the White House. He does
not, of course, "talk politics" and will
not converse with newspaper men.
The report that Vice-President Arthur
ad been summoned again is contra
icted, but there is no doubt he is
kept closely informed by Secretary
Blame, the Attorney-General, and the
Postmaster-General, of all that occurs,
and that he remains by official request
where he can be called here at a mo
Guiteau has failed of late to receive
ny attention from the local press.
The only means of learning from him
it all was through the District Attor
ey, and that official has been away
for the past week.
There has been established here a
kind of headquarters for Virginia Read
justers, the special object to be accom
lished being the dissemination among
Virginia negroes of the opinions of
orthern Republicans favorable to a
usion of Republicans with Mahone
Democrats ap the f'all election. I
udge that about one lepublican in
;en among those prominent in the
orth, countenances such a fusion.
Eet this Washington office has set it
self to work to delude ignorant Vir
iia Republicans with a belief that
.he proposition is the other way. It
s to be hoped that at the regular
leadjuster headquarters in the State
>usiness is transacted on a fairer basis
