War Investigating Board's Report.
Tho report of tho war investigating
commission, appointed by tho Prosidont,
was mado publio last ?Saturday. It pur
ports to givo a thorough investigation of
tho dl?Teront branches o' tho sorvico.
Tho roport is a voluminous document,
containing 76,000 wordH, nud is unani
mous. Gou. Milos ls censured for alleged
doroliotiou of duty in falling to commu
nicate to tho propor authorities tho boliof
or suspicion ontortninod by bim that
refrigerated beef, dangerous tc health,
was issued to troops.
Tho roport whitewashes Gen. Algor,
Scorotnry of War, and his appointees.
Thoro bas boon a feud of long standing
between Miies nud Alger, and it is ovi
dont that tho inlluoucoof tho adminis
tration has boon thrown around Algor.
Tho indications aro that Gon. Milos'a
hoad will fall. A court of inquiry has
boon orgnni/.od by order of tho Prosidont
to invostigato tho conduct of Gon. Milos
in making cliargos against tho war
dopartmont, It lias boon frequently
statod that tho commission studiously
rofrainbd from calling tho common sol
diers boforo it, and wbon any ono did
appoar who gavo honest testimony as to
irrogularitio8 or short-comings, thoy woro
without exception bullied, brow-boaton
and treated in a most brutal mannor. It
is unfortunato I hat so much suspicion of
partiality attaches to tho roport.
Tho roport, bowovor, pays a high trib
uto to tho horoism of tho common sol
diers. Tho pooplo of tho United States
should over bo proud of thoir soldiers,
who, co-oporatiug with sailors, in loss
than throo months put an omi to Spanish
colonial powor, oufranjhisod an oppressed
pooplo and taught tho whole world tho
strength and nobility o? mr groat Re

Henry Timrod ami (kc Colleges.
Wc published on tho 2d inst., as a nows
itom, that tho President and Faculty of
tho groat "Johns' Hopkins University,"
in Baltimoro, wore taking an interest in
tho salo of Timrod's Poems away off in
Maryland 1 This wook wo call attontion
to a fact which is recorded for tho first
timo in South Carolina annals: Tho ton
prominent and certainly wost influential
colleges in our State aro tho real leodora
in tbiB groat literary revival of Timrod's
Pooms. Hero is tho splendid roll call :
South Carolina Collcgo, Richland; South
Carolina Military Acadonvy, Charleston;
donison, Oconco; Winthrop, York;
Charleston Collogo; Erskine, Abbovillo;
WofTord and Convorso, Spartanburg;
Furman, Greenville^ Tho Newberry Col
logo. Why, for tho first limo in our his
tory aro tho Presidents of all our colleges
corporators in ono association. Old
lloraco explains it wbon ho says, "that
tho study of lil oral uro and tho liberal
arts toad to soften manners and disarm
rudeness;" and so it is that ovory collogo
prosidont is enrolled as a foremost
worker in restoring to circulation tbeso
wonderful pooms of ono of Carolina's
sons of gonius.
Looking nt tho situation from tho
county point of viow, of course Charles
ton and Spartanburg, with population
and two colleges npioco, havo memorial
advantages; so Richland, with tho capi
tol, its largo population and with its old
collogo; but Oconoo, with Clemson,
should easily measure with York and
Winthrop, and wo predict that no other
county with a singlo collcgo will do bet
ter than tho Northwest and Northoast
counties of our State. The four hundred
young mon at Fort Hill havo to moot
four hundred young ladius at Kock Hill
in this splendid literary and patriotic
contest. Thoro ought to bo good do
claimers in all our institutions of higher
education, and a good way to lot tho
rising generation know of tho merits of
Timrod's poetry is to havo his pooms,
"Christinas Hymn," ".Spring," "A Cry
to Arms," "Carolina," and other poems,
recited at a full assembly of studonts.
It will bo a revelation and ovory young
lady and gentleman will want a copy to
toko homo as a valuable possession.
Hesidos tho county organization at Fort
Hill and Nowry, Miss Kihi Kohl bas boon
appointed agont for Walhalla, Wost
Union, Soncca, WostmiiiBtor and tho
rost of tho county, and at an early day
will canvass for tho volumo which should
havo a placo in ovory homo in tho county.
If success attendu this praiseworthy
off ort, not only will tho poems bocomo
familiar to our people, but a publio me
morial in bis honor will bo erected.
South Carolina has in tho past been
charged with indifference to tho literary
works of Gilmore .Simms, Groyson, Paul
Hayno, Timrod and hor otbor distin
guished sons. This is a good tinto to
turn over a now loaf. It costs a very
small sum to securo a copy and havo
your name on this roll of honor. Oco

Thoro was a right lively fight ovor tho

howovor, if wo got it through tho I louse
I think it will pass tho Sonato and bocomo
law, a i Senator Alexander is now willing
for such a bill to go through tho Sonato.
His opposition to tho bill last year in tho

would not favor a local bill whon tho
Senator from that looalitv was opposed
Thc HouBo has mado sovoral attempts
to pass a resolution to lot tho pooplo voto
on an amondmont to tho Constitution
providing for bi ennial sessions. It re
quires a two-thirds voto to pass snob a

boon received in tho House. It is cer
tainly to bo hoped that enough raombers
may no woll soon to got up to tho Stato
House to secure tho desired number. If
tho pooplo over do got tho opportunity to
voto on that question thoro will bo no
more annual sessions. Out of all tho
States In tho Union only four havo annual
sessions of tho Legislature, this Stato
being ono of tho four.
Thoro aro many liquor bills before tho

Thoro is much moro poverty in towns

Indeed thoy do, all told, but thoy may
