The doutitutional Amendment.
This amendment to the Constitution
whi6h we have published, and which
irs adol:tid by Congresf, seems now
tc, be the prominent issue before th
Counjtry. it Is so sweeping in its pro

I Just rest
upoa uU. to await future
developi.iau.. if all the Northern,
States, and enough of the boider
States ratify it, to make it a part of
the Constitution, we can only submit.
But it does not appear that anything
but evil will arise to South Carolina
if it becomes a part of the supreme
law of the laud, and therefore it is ad
visable to let it become so, as far as' we
are concerned, by default on our part,
Several prominenf papers in the
South, we are told, are about to advo
cate its ratification. It will require
a' good deal of consideration o$ a
weighty character to bring us to the
positioa.that we can in the least bet.
ter ourselves by a similar advocaey.
Ootton Manufacturies in the South.
The indications around us, says -the
Charleston News,point unmistakably
to the fact that notwithstanding%the
gloomy political prospects, the South
is arousing herself for a great forward
fadvance in material prosperity. Look
around in every direction, and you
will hear of new and important> enter
prises, of such a nature, if carried out
as will add greatly to the wealt4j and
power of the country. Among these
important indications, the manufac
ture of cotton goods, f6r which the
South is most peculiarly suited, ap
pears to be receiving more than ordi
nary attention. Perhaps there is no
single branch of industry that this se6
tion could more readily take hold of
with a certainty of success than the
production of the va-ious kinds of
fabrics which are made of the cotton
wool, which is so abundantly rai4od
throughout these States. In England
this pursuit has reached gigantic pro.
portions, and the cotton mill has been
the means of building up some of the
largest fortunes in that country, The
same process is now adding heavily to
the growth of New England,and in both
cases the advantages bestowed by na
ture are not to bie compared to those
which have been bountifully given to
the Cotton States. Columbia, tha
Capital-of this State, astown beautiful
ly. locate-d by nature, although at pres
eat presenting only an evidence of the
barbarous ravages of war, might, in a
few years, by a judicious use of. capi
tal on the water power of the Broad
.and Salurda RLivers, innidiately adja..
cent, .be made a beaittiful city of 50,
* 000 or 100,000 .inhabitants. Our va
rious exchangos contain notices at
times of the progress of this branch of
industry, aind in the .region of which
* Montgomnery,. Alabama, is the bentre,

we think, was BNF.
We learn says the Carolinian, that
Meesrk. William Gregg, of Aiken, W.
R. Robertson of Wiunsboro, and Ar.
chibald Cameron, of Charleston, have
been appointed by His Excellency,
Commissioners to locate the Peniten
tiary and to prepare plans and speci
fications for the saine,to be submitted
to the Legislature at its next session.
These gentlcmen will meet in Colum.
bia on the 15th inst.
Hon. D. Wyatt Aiken has been al -
pointed to negotiate the purchase of
corn, ordered at the last session for the
relief of the destitute. .
We believe Gov. Orr could not have
made a better selection for the impor
tantpurp-se of locaffng a Penitentiary
than the above. We do- not know
Messrs, Gregg or Cayheron except by
reputation as excellent pra'tical inen,
but we do know that, Mr. Robertson
Judge of our District'dourt, is a gen
tleman of the most excellent practical
judgment, a quality so much needed
in the duty assigned the Commission
ers to locatt a Penitentiary.
We do not know any better appoint
-ment than Col. D. Wyatt Alken, In
,the important matter of buylng 300,
000 bushels of corn in the West for
the benefit of the needy of the State,
The facts below which need no argu.
ment we clip from the Carolinian. .
Our readers will observe that in the
paragraph headed "real estate," it is
expressly stated that "all of the above
lands was thin." With that statement
it is easy to infer that thee, was n10
great sacrifice "on the auction bleok."
But obsoive the second paragraph on
"sales by the Commissioner." l
cept two tracts in the list of lands it
will be discovered that the lots averaged
about thirteen ($18) dollars per acre
in currency. That does not seem to
be so great a sacrifice "on the auction
FACTS TAT NEED NO ARGUM1ENT.

Spartan, speaks in trumpet tones.. The
