We aW not opposed to progress.
We are not opposed to material de

public enterprises that are likely t

Snorthern protectionists have alwa
advoc.ced high traif' laws, for the
same reason-the protection and
eneouragement of home industries,
This exemption som taxation is
aer all that may be said for it,
but a kind of protection,
The man who own twenty thous
and dollars, and invests all his
capital in a factory, is free from
taxation, and can snap his figers
at the treasurer ; while the ran
who, for any reason, is not able to
make a similar investment, mA

draspit from the taxable property
of the country, and thereby forces
the other taxpayers to made good
what he was accustomed to pay
into the public treasury, before he
made his inest.ment, Two hundred

F.mory Speer says -a great deal
worse thing's fregn.ntly happens at
political netings in Georgia than
happened at the Marios rueeting,
and no one ever thinks of m.a.kingt
any tuss about it-" And yet Speer

in eivsiied countries. Melton
turned the man agement of the

able to wade deeper thtan himself in

In the Senate Friday there was
protracted debate on the Divore
Bill. It was a tight struggle, hoR
ever, and it was only defeated by
majority of one vote, the minds o
the Honorable members being prett,
There are filty bills and join
resolutions in the Senate, very fei
of which have been disposed of.
In the House there is more reti
cence and business is dispose
with great speed. Of 130 bill,
claims, &c.. on the calender, 33 wer
disposed of. Leaves of absence ar
largely in order.
During a session of the lions
of Representatives one day la:
week, a gentleman was called t
order for wearing his hat in the hal
the hat being a conspicuous brigl
beaver. The Speaker sled thh
the gentleman had a perfect rigl
to wear his hat in the hall. and rr
marked that in his recollection hal
the members of the House used t
wear their hats during the session:
It is not at all surprising that th
members freely eat pinders durin
the sessions-the matter of surpris
is that they wear their coats.
Governor Thompson thinks th
General Assembly should do som+
thing for increasing the etliciene
of the militia force of the Stat:
For our part, we distinctly objei
to compulsory military service, an
we see no need of spending mor
money upon the militia ,orce. I
may have been true in other time:
and it may now be true in othe
countries,- that peace is a time c
preparation for war, but the maxii
does not, apply to our corntr_
The militia force of this State i
not thorough in its organizatior
simply because its existence i
forced. We can obtain soldier
and good soldiers, when occasioi
The railroad otlicials of the Stat
have done all in their power to s
cure the enacnetnt of a law do
priving the Railroad Commission o
the authority to fix freight rates
They appeared before the Railroa
Committees and made known thei
grevances, but it is not likely tha
the desired change will be made
Mr. McCaughrin shaped before tb
Committees that the reductions it
freights to Newberry were scarcel'
perceptible and that the results o
the commission's powers would b<
disastrous to railroad property
Similar views were expresse b2
otAdr leading business men of thb
State,. after which a bill was intro
duced in the house which propose<
to take from the Commission tly
power to establish freight rates
The bill was unfavorably reportas
upon, and the matter goes over,
We did not approve the establish
ment of the railhund commission
because we regarded it as an unjus
interference with private ptoperty
-and we still so regard it. Wi
freeir- admit,. however, that wi
know more about other subjects
than about railroading ; and this
it seemis to us,. is unfortunatly truw
of the commiissioners,
i$ is likelv that a bill will b>
passed autturizing the commissio;
to enfore the establishment o
excond-elass passenger cars an<
