Working the Road,
The Town Council of Winnsboro
show commendable enterprise in put.
tiug the streets in excellent order,
and we hope that the roads leading
into Winnsboro will be thoroughly
worked before the movement of the
present crop. Really good roads will
bring both population and trade into
the town. When the great Jesuit
started his reforms in Uruguay, he be
gam them bg making good publ c roads.
We can learn by his examplo. A
gent!oman stated, in our presence,
last winter, that he had brought forty
balos of cotton to Winnsboro, and sold
them, and that ho greatly desired to
bring forty-five bules more that were
under his control, but such was the
state of the roads that lie feared for
the life of his mules. and that he must
carry ti.m elsewhere.
Cannot the petty larceny, and the
continued killing of our planters'
stock, be turned to somo public ad.
vantage by our Judges and Juries.
Thoro is stealing enough done in Fair- i
field to give us splondid roads, if the
chain-gang were to beon.e, as it.
should, a familiar spectaelo. Instead
of boarding at the public expense,
etriminals should be made to work on
the public roads. Chinaien, whom
we shall have here soon, at least in
this generation, that is, are still bet
ter than negroes at stealing. We
should form good habits for them be
forehand, and get our hand thorough
ly in, before these new specimens of
"a n and a brother," reinforce the
colored or stealing portion of our coin
nin:!Ility. Let our carpet-baggers not
forget to introduee at once the Yankee
ehain-gang, among their other refor

ject the truth, because it is misgnoted
by the devil. In bis address before

Phillips declares that adivaneo in civ

there can be no adequate system or

Gold U1i aul Rising as We rdioted.
Gold rose in New York, on the 17th
to 14, a rise of. 121 per~ ceiit since
January. The purobabi lity' is that
it will rise still more, and the wvisdom
of our counisel to all who were in con
dlition to follow it, to invest their
e >tton-mioniey in gold, until this, the
buying season of the year, set in, is
fully justified. Gold, we now repeat,
hias, for four years past, invariably

ico little operation by which the
mercantile class pocket one-lifth of
the cotton crop of the country. Th'Iey
tell planters, of course, that it is due
to the irresistible course of circunm
stanices. Stock jobbers at New York
aind elsewhere have nothinig to do with
it. And planters who, the world
round, have ever been the slowest
people to perceiveotheir own interests,
umy believe it, if they choose.
Quarreling Over the Remains,
Thie Radicals are already wrangling
over the remalns of what they admit
is a dead administration. Tfhe ques
ionu Is not "who killed Robin P' sa
the Detroit F,ee J'tess, but "why did
t.ock Robin over live ?" The Chica
go IRepubl?ican, whlieb seems determnin
e-l to bra'ely stand by the concern un
til it Is decently buiried, thus berates
its party friends for their Iifidelity
and ,want ,of.courtesy to the dead :
"Even the Jaokha. and torn kna
zards and scavengers of the party camp
scent not only the rising gale of popu
lar dissatisfaction, but are preparing
to veer round and take advantage of
the unexpected change of sentiment.
The very ien who, a short timo since,
claimed to be friends of the President
par e"xellence, are now wagging their
tongues against him in the streets and
pn blie bar-rooms, and pronouncing
him a political failure and his uomi
nation t party blunder."
"Rats desert a sinking ship." It
is the work of instinct ; and we see no
reason why the Republican should
abuse its party friends for abandoning
the administration before it becomes
so low as to make support of it posi.
"Self-proservation is the first law of
Grant Deserted by His Friends,
The Chicago Tribune says
"There iiever was an administration
with better intentions or less aptitude
for carrying them out."
And the New York Tribune says
"Two months have passed away,
and it cannot be aflirmed that we
have i strong adminiistration. Its
moral power has been frittered away
by smali absurdities."
Of the Cabinet, it says:
"Secretary Fish 'has come down tc
us from a former generation, but he
is not the man to conduct our diploma.

if he should remain at the head of the
