We ?aw, with much concern, among the pro?
ceedings of the Le, ?tinture, on tho ?th toit., a
notice by Wm BUHU, of tho Son a to, of a bill to re
peal tho Act of Sept., 1880, which secara lient
upon the growing crop, as security for advances
made for supplies to curry on said crop. Wo
were concerned, because we feared that tb? with?

advances woro mude, would put a stop to such
advances, In the main, and, just at tbie season,
when arrangements are being made for the pres*
eut year's operations, disconcert, disarranges

A lotter before us, from a leading factorage

of enlarged liberality and conserv?t i re views
ono that advanced more than $100,000 ou liens
tho past year, and, under * earnest, application,
was m iking arrangements to probably double
that amount the present year-confirms our ap.
prohonsious, and puts the mutter even in a more
eorious light than nppearod to us at first
We mako tho following extract from this
lotter, ud Irosssl to partios nt this placo:
"Wo snw, (bis morning, io the dallios, a notice
of a Hill repealing tho Lion Law of IK Gi}. This
Stops all proceedings towards advances. You will
ploase suspend all issuos of Liens, as wo shall
fill no orders for advances until this question is
Bottled In the Assembly. If this aot is rcponlcd it
will nearly ruin our planting friends, aud atonco
throw out of employ mont 25,000 laborers."
If the object of legislation bo tho public good
to foster mid dovelop tho industry and material
?merest of tho State-then wo are totally at a loss
to discover Ibo basis of argument and reasoning
for tho proposed action.
It is so manifest ns to bo apparent to every
observer, that tho application of tho limited copi,
tul of tho country, through tho operations of this
Act, to the industry of tho country, hus been such
ns constituted lt almost tho primo basis bf tb?
action of tho tatter. A large portion of (ho plant?
ing iutorosts of tho KUto havo bton conducted,
since tho war, upon this basis, and such was tho
destitution of tho country, that it could not havo
boon conducted upon any other basis. It has
added to tho product of the State, thousands of
halos of cotton, and tons of thousands of bushels
of corn-put In cultivation broad fields, and
almost innumerable smaller ones, which othorwho
would havo continued to lay in fruitless waste,
and given employment, with fair earnings, to
thousands of thu freed pc plo. And vory many of
theso people, who, by industry uud frugality,
have been enabled, !rom tho earnings ol ino pre?
vious year, to rent or purelinso small pnrcols of
land for cultivation, havo secured assistance,and
wcro now making arrangements to securo such
assistance-which they could - not othorwiso
obtain-under Um provisions of this Act.
We know hundreds of colored men now ranking
arrangements to carry on their crops tho pr?tent
your, under this lion law, who, by tho iuovitublo
rosults of its repeal, will And. their whole basis
of work in tho soi), for tho year, checkmated
and their operations brought to a perfect stand?
And so of hundreds of while farmera. And if
tho Legislature repeal ?his Act, it oannot othor?
wiso result than in reducing, to a great oxtcut,
tho agricultural products of tho State, the present
Year, us it will amount, virtually, to tho with?
drawal of a large amount of capital from assist?
ance of this grout central, vital interost.
If, thcroforo, the movement to ropcnl this Act
be designed as a blow nt the lauded interests of
tho State-to cripplo and obstruct this, in order
to force tho sale of lands, and thus to wrest it
from tho hands of proscut owners-(and wo con?
fess wo can soo no other possiblo motivo)-it must
not only signally fail of its design upon this class,
separately- since it will fall upon tho colored os
voil us tho white man-and can only bo accom
pli.-hed by putting an incubus upon the industrial
iuteicsts and energies of tho country generally,
nnd intliuting a heavy loss upon tho earnings of
tho State at largo.
Wo coll upon tboso in authority to pnu?o_
These aro tho facts of tho case, di-connected from
all political fueling or principio-regardless of
parly or race-and wo trust that thoto who now
sit in the counsels of tho Stato, will not exhibit
themselves so blinded and prejudiced by partisan
feeling, as tu rush wildly ?uto a moosuro. Uko
this, regardless of tue common good.
COTTON' STIiA I, IIS'G.
Thc bill introduced by Mr. Fr.ntTF.R, of Sum
ter, lo regulate thc sale of cotton und designed to
afford some remedy for tho terrible ovil of cotton
stealing, nnd tho illicit tmOic in seed cotton, from
which the planting community suffered so much
tho past season, carno up for consideration, in
tho House on the 7th in*i.r and was lint by a
vote of 02 io 2.
Wo annex tho fellowing report of thc discus?
sion on thc bill, taken from tho ' Courier," in
order that our honest farirers ntny sec how their
interests stand with those who assume to bu
their representatives. Mr. Porltor hus discharged
bis duty in tho matter, in the interests of honesty
und tho country, and tho result is before us. We
say, emphatically, let ibero bo no moro burning,
but lut every man protect his own property. This
ho has ii right to do, Mid this our Inmost people
Polarge moved to strike out tho enacting
clause. For ri tor, ol Sumter, who introduced thu
Hill, Bab! that in his section of tho country (Sum?
ter) cotton stealing is an evil, and tho people
demanded some remedy Little stores were
opened in different pails of tb? country, anil nt
night thieves would steal Colton *:id sell lo theso
Stores. Tho people both rieb, and poor, demand
id protection from theso midnight marauders,
ntnl Ibis Hill will give tho remedy. Ho said al?
though thu Hill could not prevent the thieves
from stealing cotton, yet it would prevent persons
from realizing on lite stolen cotton, lt would
protect tho pour colored man wini rakoa ? ?cw
bale*, as well ns thu rich in ntl who raises n thou?
sand huies. It was for tho I.ondit (if tho whole
people. He said he could tell o? enies where tho
fields ?vero while IV iib Colton at sunset, and nt
sunrise it had boon entirely stripped. Such ac?
tions bud exasperated thu people, und a abort
limo ago i bu store of Air. Kohersuu who hui', been
accused of buying stolen cotton was burnod to
the ;,r,oiiid, and if the citizens canuot bu protect
(id they will again (uko the law in their own
bun ts. This t'Vll of cotton-stealing was growing
mid in one county nf this St Hu thirty little atoros
bad bcCMstarted in thirty days, who woro carry
In g on (ho illicit ti ado of buying stolen cotton,
nod no doubt urged parties to steal ir. Tho trade
is all < arr led on hutweon 3 o'clock, 1'. M and
daylight. Ho said tho bleu of con.m weighers
was no now tiling, for foUitcon years ag", ii? tho
town of Choraw, they had cotton weigh? rs. Cot?
ton is tho grout Sltlplo of our country, and Ibo
planter, be ho rich ur poor, must ho piotuuled. lt
tras tho wish of Ilia colored peoplo that some
snell mensuro us lilli should puss, as be bad bron
fi ni on u tlnii) in thc field and on the highway, had
comers"d with them nile knew 'heir wants. Ho
hopvd t'io otiHClingoliiiis.- iiuuld not bo stricken
'I'omltnson opposed thc Hill, ond said thu Leg
Mature might ne wi ll p?s* an Act to rogulato
tho s ilo of rico, (and pli-nly of that bad boen
Stolen.) corn or any other commodity. Ile did
not believe tho nmouot of cotton had bcon stolen
as har been often asserted. Tho g< utleinan from
Sinnier ( I'orrWor) hud referred tu the burning of
Mr, 1.ooo,,sun's Koro In Sumter "by iudiguant
eitieeos." He weald Mk. bad it baan, shown
tbat Mr. Kobcrroa waa guilty of reeelviag atolcn
cott-.o ? He Illil bo belier?J Iba burning of Ur.
Roberson'satora wa? a political Mt, and for no
' other cause, for the nea weut there ta disguiao.
He aatd all Ibis elanor about stolen eotion ls
i raised for political effect only-lt la alijwh. Hs
desired ii to be understood that he was not apeak*
lng in a spirit of demagogubrM. He aald tba
Legislature bas no righi to Interfere io such
things; to PMS tbla Bill would be to oppressa
majority cf poor people in this State.
Defarge opposed the bill, aud saM he thought
the bill WM born la hell and conceived of the
devil. He hoped the bill would be voted doun,
and show to these people who cono here and say
if tba Legislature will not do ao and so they will
do so and so. lbey nay burn down stores onco
too often. The 8tat,e now baa the power to take
bold anu punish snob midnight marauders,. There
I is sufficient law ou the statuto booka to punUb
stealing, be tbat tho stealing of cotton or any
thing ot e. If tho law is not aevoro enough theo
aneud ia What more protection is needed?
Surely tho Bill before us oannot grant it. Tb?re
ia lew enough to punish receivers of stolen cot
i toa also, and bow lidieutous lt acema for men to
: talk of taking the law in their own bands. If
Robertson bud been guilty of buying stolen cot?
ton, why did they not arrest bim-instead of
burning his dwelling and driving out bis wife
and children-and tbon apply tho law, which, if
they did not think was severo enough, let them
cone to this Gonerat Assembly and aak that the
l law be amended. But no, they did not ; and
men who aro outlaws como beru and ask us for
protection. Oh ! consistency thou art a jewel.
Let us tell these gentlemen of Sumter county
that if they again act contrary to the law that
there is power in tho Slate that will make them
stand to luw. This Bill would be an act of op
pressiou to the poor, as it proposes to tax them
to foe a commissioner, and, upon the whole, it is
dangerous and special legislation.
B. James, (colored,) of Sumtor. favorod the
Bill andbolioved the measure would benefit all
the people, rich aa woll as poor. He did not bo
liovo tho assertion of the gentleman from Charles,
ton, (Tomlinson,) that tho destruction of Mr.
Robertson's s toro was a political action. Ha said
be knew Robertson, and as far as Robertson's
political status was concerned, lt n.m nut up to
high water murk. Ho said cotton hud I cen stolen
from tho fields of poor colored men und curried
at night to littlo stores amt sold.
Smiling (colored) of Sumter, opposed tho Bill.
Ho had conversed with whito aud colored pcoplo
in his County, in rcforonco to this Bill. Ho be
lloved Ibo intent of the Bilt war good, but il wus
spoilt in drawing lt up. This Bill duos not catch
tua dishonest mun at all. It will not do to com?
pel a poor roan who has a bag of cotton to curry
it to town or await the pleasure of tho Cominis
slonor to examine it, balure ho cnn soil it. Ho
believed the Bill entirely detrimental to tho inter
cats of the poor man.
Wilder opposed tho Bill, and looked upon it as
an attempt to revive the provisions of tho old
negro codo. Ho was not surprised nt tho soi'.'rco
from which tho Bill originated (Sumter ) u0.
ho was burn in Sumter, mid wu!'. rvci'.?eetcdtho
limo when n poor colored ?San ty ./nod to sell a fow
eggs, Ac, unless ho ?^d a pn(s from his master,
ho was put in tbo "bull-pen," and now about tho
eulae?*Jr'-ffiiioii is offered hero-thc appointment
of Commissioners to inspect and weigh cotton.
Ho styled them a? tricksters, who wonted to buy
the cotton from tho poor colored man nt a more
nomiual figure. Ho was-free, and wnntcd every
man to bo fro? ur lils actions und in thu sale cf his
products, bo they large or small.
Whipper opposed the Bill nm] aatd thcro woi
suffieion: law now to punish either petty or gi um!
larceny, and why not apply tho law? In rogunl ti
thc appointment of Commisioners ho wauled ti
know what guaranty thoro was that said Cominis
i stoners would nil bo honcct men, and if not wonk
they not encourage steuling of cotton and soil
i PODIO fur their own boncfit. And again Would i
bc possible thnt the cotton thief would go to tin
I Coinmisloner or weigher with his stulon tottoi
and thcro establish bis guilt. What is wanted
said he, ls a Commissioner-on each larrie planta
thin to protect tho poor laborer 0'iiu seo tho
ho ia nut robbed aud cheated of bis bard cam
Ramsay (colored) of Sumter, and Chcsnut (col
ored) of Kershaw, also aiad.o brief speeches in op
position to the bill.
On the question nf striking out tho onnct
log claese of tho Bill, De Largo culled th
yens and nays, wMoh rtsultod as follows : Yens
62;uuys,2; unsent or not voting, 59.
Und'or the luw as it bas been croate J, tho c?lico
ti O'", of State and county toxos WOu'.d begiu on til
"15th Inst. Wo seo it stated that it having beei
lound impracticable to coinmonco the coiled ?ot
at that ti mo, it will bo deferred until about tho ls
of February. It is also stntod that tho tn:
will bo one-third less than that of last year, am
will be fixed at ono half of ono per. cent.
Tho estimated expenses of tho State Govern
ment amount to $036,000, which, rddod to th
promium on gold in which the interest of tho Stat
dobt is to bo paid, will amount to about $1,000
OOO. At the rato assessed upon redland persona
property, tho amount realizod will bo but $S20,
OOO; and thus tho Stute dobt will likely bo in
creased to the amount of about $200,000. As th
sharpers, in ordor to pilo up their own eoOtai
havo made tho interest payable in gold, thl
amount will no doubt bo easily absorbed.
This, howovcr, will afford some temporary ri
lief to Ina tax-payer, and. it may be, postpon
tho day at whioh they will bo required to pay til
deficit of radical extravagance, until a time ;
which they may bo botter able to meet it. Upo
tho whole, it would seem to bo an indien Mon i
