Death of Mr. D. B. MoOreight.
The subject of this minoir was bor
in Fairfield District, S. C., March 2d
1833. The companions of his earl
years will remember him as bearing
character remarkably free from vice
and irregularities, which common
disfigure the ardent, and erring, p
riod of youth.
But "the steps of a good man ai
ordered by the Lord," and it was p
culiarly pleasant to him to trace tl
hand of Providence in the events
his oheckered life ; and to attribute
the divine blessing, attending tI
prayers and instructions, of a devo
edly pious mother, what others are a,
oustomed to'rofer to natural tempor
mont, and personal discipline.
It was deeply affecting to witne
the filial tenderness with which I

to kneel with him, and placing h
hand upon his head, invoke the blo
ing of a covenant God upon his futu
years. Ijor fervent prayers, ai
earnest counsels, were over fresh
his memory, and seemed to foll<
him, like guardian angols, whisperi
accents of warning and nceourap
mont, and beaconing him away frc
many a forbidden path.

Mr. Editor :
Intense desire to contribute towards
restoring prosperity to my fellow-citivis
induces me to offer a few suggestions on
the above subject, which I will be pre
pared to advocate more at large hereafter
at the meeting to be held in Winnsboro
on the 2d Monday of this month, and
in other st.ctions of the District, if the
pian I shall propose elicits sufficient in

To sum up thin whole subject of im
migration in brief, we wil obtain immi

Ready Money to pay their passage to
Fairfield, and to start them in their oc
cupations snccessfully. All schemes not
involving this feature, will not only be
slow to get into operation, but will
probably fail completely in the end.
Let us, then, form a Company, char.
tered for the term of ten years, under
the direction of competent directors,
chosen by stockholders and with one or
more officers paid for attending to the
interests of the Company. Let sub
scriptions to its stock be solicited and
obtained, the money obtained to be ap
plied by loans on good security and
bearing interest, to encouraging all ef.
forts to induce immigraticn, and to mul.
tiply such industrial pursuits in Fairfield
District, as may meet the mature appro
bation of the Board of Directors.
. The features of a l3uhiing and Loan
Association, and also of a Saving Bank
(but not of a Bank of Discount or Ex.
change) could very judiciously and
effcctivt.ly be combined with the opera.
Lions of this Company.
Since the existence of the Company,
as being an experiment, should be limit
ed to a term of ten years, the assets will
at the expiration of that term, be distrib
uted amongst the stockholders, in pro
portion to their stock, whether contrib.
uted in cash, which is the great need of
the company, in order to enable it to
work at once, or in good titles to land,
to be disposed of by the Directors, to
Immigrants or others.
Such a company might lose small
amounts by injudioious loans to par.
