Gov. Thompson's InauguraL
Hon. Hugh S. Thompson was in
augurated Governor the .th instant.
His Inaugural Address to the General
TAssembly, though carefully prepared
and scholarly in language, is devoid
of-point or-special interest. He cou
gratulates the people of the country
upoa the results of the recent elections,
as showing a. determination on the
part of the people to se'ure a more
rigid adherence to the principles upon
-which the government is founded.
He-speaks in glowing terms of the
-abundance of the crops and the pros
perity of the country. A large portion
of the address is devoted to the matter
of. popular education. He puts in a
word for tbe South Carolina Univer
sity and Citadel Academy. He in
sists that there is a pressing demand
for the establishment of secondary or
graded schools, which should be sup
ported by local taxation, and should
form a stepping-stone from the common
school to the "State institutions and
the excellent colleges in operation in
different parts of the State." He
refers to legislation on the subject of
rail roads, and urges' such legislation
as will protect the people from unjust
discriminations and at the same time
not be unjust to the rail roads. He
closes in the following:words :
"Although I have been elected as
the representative of a political party,
in the performance of my duty I shall
be the Governor of the whole people
of the State. I have no friends to
reward ; no enemies to punish ; no
partisan schemes to advance; no pri
vate ends to accomplish.
Relying confidently upon your co
operation, and invoking as I humbly
and fervently do, the guidance of an
all wise Providence, I shall to..the
utmost of my .ability maintain the
honor and promote the welfare of
Reunion and Banqueting.
It is a significant fact that the
students, alumni and gfficers of the
S. C. College and S. C. University
held a reunion in the House of
Representatives yesterday ; that an
oration was delivered by one of the
alumni, to which the public was
invited ; and more significant still
that "a banquet of the alumni and
special guests'' was spread last
night at 9.30, the special guests
being, to a very considerable num
ber, members of the Legislature.
The object of this movement is ap

d The Message of Gov. Ragood.
The last Annual Message of Gov.
[lagood to.the Legislature is' an able
document, and sets forth the condition
of public affairs plainly and minutely.
e The Message is too long tb be copied
in full into this paper; but we shall
attempt to give the substance of it.
The .* .
e PUBLIC DEBT
i s $6,571,825, bearing interest at 6
per cent. The debt was decreased the
past year $70,496. The State seou
-. rities sell upon the market above par.
The current expenses of the State are
met by current funds; and there is a
balance of $98,017 in the Treasury,
sawaiting Legislative disposition.
THE REVENUES OF THE STATE
s for current expenses are derived from
fthe net earnings of the penite.ntiary,
the phosphate royalty and taxation.
The penitentiary paid into the Treas
ury the past year $40,000 ; the phos
phate royalty $138.254; the State
Tax was 41 wills. The ordinary ex
e penses of the State government for the
r next year can be met by a levy of i a
will; the public debt will -require
3 1-10 mills more, making 3 6.10
mills. But $100,000 will have to be
lborrowed to pay interest on the public
debt in anticipation of the collection
a of taxe.s; and to do this will require
e 8 10 of a mill more, making the total
tax levy 4 4.10 mills. The Message
e recommends that the first annual pay.
meat of taxes, in the spring, be made
- compulsory, so that there will be money
in the Treasury to pay the interest on
the public debt as it falls due without
,having to borrow from the banks.
THE STATE PENITENTIARY.
The 1st of November there were 824
convicts in this institution,'against
0690 at a corresponding period in 1881;
- 778 are colored, 46 white. Of the
e 824 convicts, 224 were leased upon
phosphate work ; 121 were leased upon
railroads ; 25. upon, the Seegers farm,
0 and 454 within the walls of the prison.
0 Of those within the urison 97 were at
a work with a contrector in making
shoes, 120 at work on the Columbia
_ canal, and the remainder in various
employments. A large amount of
a work has~ been done upon the peni
- tentiary itself, and also upon the Col
t umbia canal. The Superintendent's
Report exhibits the following transac
tions : A balance in hand at the be
ginning of the fiscal year of $21,199;
2 earnings for the year, $94,236; ex
r penses proper 'of the penitentiary,
I $50$89; per diem and mileage of
r Board of Directors,.$1,267; paid on
canal, $8,096; paid into State Tress
-ury $40,000; and rernining in hands
of Superintendent, $14,901. This
last amount is in cash and bankable
notes given for convict labor.
This exhibit contrasts favorably
with the management of the peniten
tiary in the period from 1868 to 1876.
Then, beside the earnings of the con
- victs, it required an annual average
.. appropriation of $62,800 from the
State Treasury to support the institu
tion. In the health, general appear
ance and judicious discipline of the
convicts, a like improvement appears.
THE LUNATIC ASYLUM.
In .this institution are 550 patients ;
330 white, 220 colored; 525 are
supported by the State, 25 by them
selves or friends. The Trustees ask
for next year an appropriation of
THE DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTUEE.
A tax of 25 centsaon every ton of
commercial fertilizers sold in the State
Iis applied to the maintenance of this
eal interests of the State, and with
the promotion of immigration. Tbe
Message says, --I am pemxuaded Lhat
Departmeit ; the tax realized the piast
year was 823,704.
The Departninnt .it charged with
the iusptctioa and sapervision of the

to the benefit of the State."
The Message urges the Legislature
to devise measures to promote itumi
gration, as - a matter of paramount
importance to the State, socially and
industrially. For the
STATE AGRICULTURAL .AND MECUAN

ance of an annual appropr.atiou of
The educational institutions of the
State are commended to the fosteriug
care of the Legislature. A gratifying
improvemeot is shown in the
( PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM.
The amount of schol clhims not
standing in October. 1877. was $209,
940 66; these claiwb Lave dearly all
been paid, and the school fund is al
ajost free of debt. The a.ttendance
upon the public schools the past year
was 145,974 ; whites 65.399. o-olored
80,575; number of teachers 3,413;
white 2,126, colored 1.287 ; u,nher

dents., Tne students are provided
with rooms, the only charge being $10
a year for repairs, and tuition is free
-to all whose p*renth. reside irr this
State; they pay their own board. .The
Trustees will ask for an appropriation
of 812,500 for this college-the same
as last year. The Deaf and Dumb
Asylum, at Cedar Springs, had 62
pupils in attendance. The Superin
tendent recommends the establishment
of a separate department, with subor
dinate teachers, for deaf and dumb
colored children. An. appropriation
of 812.350 will be .aked for, which
includes the expenses of establishing
the proposed colored department.
THE RAIL ROAD COMMISSIONER
reports that his inspections of ttie
railroads the past year have been
highly satisfactory to him; that many
and vast improvemients have been
made, and the facilities for the safe
and speedy transfer of persons and
property have been much increased.

been projected, and considerable pro
