A Detroit paper relates the following
story in connection with the dog tax in
that city: "A boy about ten years of
age, leading a lively little dog, called at
the Central Station and asked if that
was the placo whero they shot dogs.
Being answered in the affirmative, he
said: "Well, please shoot triy poor
little Dan. He's an awful good dog,
and he plays with the baby all day, but
father's dead, and mother's sick, and 1
can't raise money to get a license." Then
turning to the dog tho boy stroked him
saying, *Poor Dan ; how Billy will cry
when I tell him you are dead 1' Great
big fears rolled down tho boy's fuco and
in a little time those around him made a
purse sufficient to save his ddg, and a
yrsoa went with him after the license.
The boy's eyes fairly spark'cd at his
unexpected luck, and, speaking to the
dog, he cried, Mint you're saved, let'ago
right home to Billy 1"
Tho flow York Herald's money article
'of Sunday, under the head of Southern
Securities says: "The dealings in this *

being made to foist some of the worth
less issue* of South Carolina on the mar

)uying bonds which sooner or later
must undergo material chango for the
worse. Those efforts arc stimulated by
a recent decision of the Supreme Court
of that State, which unfortunately, as
we nro informed, cannot be reviewed by
the Supreme Court of the United States.
The people of South Carolina will u n
questionably pay with cheerf ulnoss what
it legitimately due on their public debt,
but whs temper ef tho Stato, if we may
judgo from the tone of its press and tho
statements of its leading citizens, is
fiercely antagonistic to any swindle, even
though it be perpetrated by a legislature

the recent encounter botwoon MM.Raoo
and de Casftagnao, tho foomec recently
elected to the French Assembly by the
. Radicals, and tbe latter being editor ol
a bitterly hostile Paris journal. The
duel was fought on the 7th instant on
Luxembourg teritory. The Gaulois
says: la the Srst assault, after a feint,
M. de Caseaguac received a wound which,
beginning above hid glove, ran up the
foroafna nearly to the elbow. Four times,
without interval or respite, did their
weapons meet, and each timo there was
a succession of thrusts, parries aud feints,
performed with almost magical celerity.
Twice the adversaries came into bodily
[contact, and then it was that M. do Cas

the blood whi^ch lillod bia shirt slsev**.
The duol lasted fourteen minutes, and
tha seconds proposed a euspoosiou which
M. de Caesagnae refused, as he fca>-ed
that his fore arm might bcoomo weaken
by the los? of blood. In the fifth bout
M. de'Casvngnac made a rapid niovc

The result of the recent election was
surprising only to those who were unac
1?ainted with the results of the regis
tration. On Monday evening t,ha
Republicans booime aware th it th o
Independents' were in a majority, and,
in effect, gave up the struggle. This
they did the more readily as the Inde
pendents had widely placed upon* their
ticket no njan who, pSity prejudice
aside, was not esteemed and respected
by our citizens generally.

Aim! we are ouu5\K nt that the ""^efijig
of dir>np]ir>iutmcnt which naturally re
? alls from a defeat will bo entirely for
gotteu if our aucccssful opponents will
bring to their administration of uur
municipal affairs (as we believe indeed
tbey will) a spirit of fairness toward
tneu of all colors and parlies, and a
desire, demonstrated by works, to favor
rather thau retard that rapid yet healthy
growth of which Orangcburg has al
ready shown herself so capable.
Let us have now streets, a towu Mar
ket, a public weigher, and several other
necessities and we shall gladly shake

t, nquestionably the gravest strhjeci
of public consideration for the people
of lb s State is the disposition of our
ilcbt. There is enough of confusion
and uncertainty in its condition to
occupy the wisest fin-tneiers of the time.
The refusal or neglect to pay interest,
together with other issues raised, have
already completely floored the credit of
the State. Confidence bns gone ai>d
the trump of resurrection will not re
store it, if another session of the Legis
lature pasHcs without some practical
solution. IV e understand, from one
who ought to Know, that tho bonds of
this State of every class have been
??expelled the Stock Exchange, and that
there is an understanding with the
bankers, brokers and business men of
the North not to accept them, nor, in
fact, any security subject to public
control as collateral for loans. Ou r
bonds are quoted day after day at the
same figure, and we take it their stand
ing in the. murkut is merely nominal.
The court has exhausted its authority
id placing tho rights of the creditor
under the sanction of the constitution
iticlf. W? veature to say that no S^tnto
in the Union has ever*before lifted the
rights of tho oreditor to suoh a para
mount bright, and up to this timo it
has not had any appreciable effect on
the Sonde nor contributed muoh to the
restoration, of public confidence. The
Legislature is se rightfully jealous of its
authority over the whole subject of the
finances, and the time is ?3 short before
tho proposed special scasioo, that tho
machinery to collect that tax could hardly
be set in motion, even if it had not bo
nomo so odiou* in the eyes of the people
as fco' make Us collection without the

Leigh Hunt has touchiugly remarked,
"I for my part must stiii oudcavor, till I
die, to push the world a little further
into the sunshine." Although my
world is a very narrow one, I trust that
a somewhat kindred motive prompted
me to intrude my thoughts upon those
of your readers most directly interested
iu tbis matter, and whom 1 can better
reach through your generally circulated
journal than by any other means. I
beg loavo to prcmiso that I am very
conscious that there are many better
able to prescut this subject in its true
light thau I am, but as they have not
doue so, upon my repeated invitation, I
venture again, more at length, to bring
it to view. 1 have repeatedly exptessod
the opinion that tho
UNRECLAIMED LAN"VB ON THE WATERKE,
now comparately useless, would feed the
State if brought into safe cultivation.
If this proposition can be substantiated,
suroly a State badly provisioucd will
make great efforts to reclaim these
lands. This is no new idea. Fifty years
since Col. Adam Ulanding was most
earnest in this matter, and just before
the war intelligent and patrotic go?tlc
men had devised and were prepared to
execute a scheme to effectuate this great
work. It may be well to observe that
in the opinion of many of more eularged
experience and observation than I can
assume to have, there arc. in this State,
NO LANDS COMPARABLE TO THOSE
of the Watcrco for the production of
corn, except, perhaps, those on the
upper. Peadce. Indued, 1 have koowti
person *of experience who have examined
carefully tbe river lands and prairies of
the mum Invert, who regarded tho
Watcreo lands superior for corn pro
duct. We have cotton lands iu abund
ance all over our State, but our uplands
are unsuited to oorn and the grasses.
We have lauds suited to these products,
but our Nile which enriches the land
devours remorselessly its products. The
product, per ncre, in corn on Watcroe
lands equals that ol the Ohio Vnlley
and the prairies of the great West, but
fieaheto and want of drainage render the
crops uncertain ia the extreme. There
arc between the shoals at Camdon and
the junction with tho Congaree one
hundred and twenty thousand acres of
swamp land, now of little value, with
tho exception of a few plantations near
I'amden, which are capable of produc
ing, without manure, over
FIFTY BUSHELS OF COHN PER AClfE,
if well drained and cultivated, or
surpassing in uativo grasses the blue
grass of Kentucky. Now it is equally
impossible to cu'tivate these lands, or to
expose sheep to the inroads of the
freshets. When labor was abundant
and compulsory the lauds could, to a
moderately certain extent, be protected
by embankment, and wore valued at
tifly dollars per acre : now the greater
portion of them is deserted. A few,
somewhat protected, even now aro valu
ed at thirty dollars per acre, while
thousand* of acres of the liehest lauds
in the State could be bought at two
dollars per aero, and some at one dollar
per ncrc. Suppose the?c utilised and
producing millions of bushels ol grain,
thousands of horses, mules, cuttle, sheep
and hogs, and reflect that many of these
things aro now imported into the State
at an expenco of traiiportation exceed
I ing their prime cost Tho whole of
these land-, would not now sell at an
average ot ton dollars per aero. Indeed,
I know places where, subdivided, the
swamp lands, hitherto moat valuable,
will not sell at all even at two to three
dollars pet acre, whilo open uplands
j adjoining sell readily for twenty five
dollars per acre. The good uplands in
this State near railroads are pretty well
appreciated, and oan soon "begiu to |
stand alone," although their inferiority :
te bottom lands for grain is universally
! acknowledged. Lands which will pro
duce fifty to sixty bushels of corn per
aore, or a bale of cotton without man
ure, are surely worth fifty dollars per
acre, probably ono hundred dollars; but
event rato them at fifty dollars, their
present value docs not execod ton dollars
por sere. I am infuruted upon good
authority, from one who has oxamined
into the subject from good data and
thorough acquaintance with the whole
swautp, that it will cost about
om; million OK DOLLARS
to straighten the rivor nod perfect tho
tlateral d raius and dykes. If this be so, I
and its verity oan easily be tested or
disproved, this work would add four
millions of dollars to the wealth of
Kcrshuw, Richland and Sumtcr Coun
ties, and of taxable property to the
Stato. That this work will be done iu
lime cannot bo doubted. It is impor
tant that it bo done now while the lands
are depressed iu value, and can only
thus be enhancod, "und while they arc
yet under the control of our own people.
It is earnestly hoped that a joint stock
company will be formed at once by
thoso immediately concerned, and tho
work kept with all its profits among
ourselves. It is deemed certain that
tho Legislature, io view of the immense
addition of- taxable property to be
KXEMl'T THE LAND8 OF THE COMPANY
for a period of ton years. Will not the
large proprietors, whoso lands are a
burden to thorn, earnestly join iu this
work, which will require from them
only a contribution in lauds, which will
become a heavier burden still unless
some effort is made to redeem them ?

We clip from the Sumtcr W.atchm au
this charming picture of country life and
most truthful illustration of the pros
perity of the colored people We do
not care to publish tho pditioal sugges
tions of the writer, because we think
that in the houest aud earnest political
influence of the colored people is the
salvation of the State. The correspon
dence of the. II'atrhman sayg:
"Oa cither side of the clean but ir

struck with the extreme neatness aud
oleaulincss of every portion. The walls
were nicely white washed and adorned
with some cheap prints. A small cup
board exhibited through its glass, dours
a modest stock of crockery, bright and
clean. A musket was suspended above
the door, a water bucket stood on tho
shelf, its brass hoops burnished like
gold. The floor aud the deal table wore
scrubbed with the utmost care. A few
books were seen on a*shelf, aud gave a
new charm to the room. Tho cottage
was of the most humble kind. It was
built of round limbs for scantling, aud
clapboards instead of lumber. There
were four small rooms, all apparently
neat and orderly.
* The farmor who lives there told us
tint he and his two daughters f ho was a
widower) cultivated his little farm of
eight actcs and kept cvcrythiuK in order
iu the house. His laud had been bought
? y his hard earnings as a farmer and
gardncr in the neighboring town, and
his cottsgc was built by his own hands.

his life of hard an 1 honest labor, che r
cd by the sweet but siniplo joys with
which lu had surrounded himself, to
the care worm and troubled existence
which is the fate of many.
"And now, gentle reader, you no
doubt have located this cottage in some
rural district of OU or New Kngland.
Rut you arc mistaken. The year left
blank above was 1S7?, the State South
Carolina, the neighboring town ?Mir own
Sumker and the precise locality of the
model farm was, Jantet Hill.

Wlil France Accept :i King.
Tho Loudou Spectator docs not be
licvu that a restoration is possible iu
''ruiico without a long and bloody civil
war. The hope ol the Royalists is that
the Assembly will meet, and their party,
by the coalescing of tho Orleans branch
under the leadership of the Comto de
Paris, and ibe Legitimists, undor the
Comtc do Cbambord, will simply pro
claim the latter King as Henry V.
That decree once passtMl, no resistance
is, as they fancy, possible; for Marshal
McMuhnn has promised to obey any
decree of the Assembly; the civil authori
ties have all been secured by sweeping
changes, and still more sweeping threats
and the peasantry themselves will be
cither charmed with the restoration or
bo merely puseivo. Tho King, restored
to his throne, will grant whatever liber
ties he pleases; the nobles will be grati
fied with a Second Chamber; the priests
with the control of education; and the
ancient happiness of France will bo res
tored with her ancient monarchy. To
this consummation the interview at
Grobsdorf paved tho way. The unity
iu the Assembly is said to be strong
enough for this, purpose; but tbeic is
McMabon and tho army, which has no
traditions aonnoctcd with the Rourbons.
If tb??y think that the Republicans will
easily submit, the Legitimists deceive
themselves. There is M. Thiers, still
tho second power in France, who iu a
recent speech said that a liberal mon
archy, his early dream, was no longer
possible and that henceforth be consec
rated his life to tho consolidation of the
Republic; there again arc the people, to
whom nil the traditions of the Comte dc
Cbambord are antagonistic, and who
will not be ruled in tho uinetconth cen
tury by the ideas of the fifteenth.
An interesting instance of fluctuating

if it was a pleasure to him, and left. In
the afternoon he camo again, looking

back once more, saying: "It's no u**~;
she's got to be posted,' and, handing
over bis papers, disappeared Uofore
night be returned, and again withdrew
bis advertisement, intimating that this
time tho reconciliation was genuine and
everlasting. He did not put in an ap
pearance the next day, but the day fol
lowing he walked in, and, with an air
of despcratiou; ordered for the third
timo the momentous advertisement tobe
published. It was put in type, and as
the paper was about to go to press, n
nervous, sharp featured, bright eyed
woman of fifty uppcared on the scene,
bringing a writing from her hm-baud
to the following purport;
