A convention of delegates, repro.
,senting most of tho far Western States
and the Territories, met in Dr'nver
YJity, Col., Oct. 15tlh to considor the
subject of irrigation, and to devise a
iuoans by which the great expanse
of rainless country between iho M is
ouri river and th.e Rocky Mountains,
as ell as on the lacific slope, can be
brought under a system of ir igatior.,
so as to nia-k the saino valuable to
the sections in which it lies, as well
as to the GAoneral Uovernimnut, which

A negro missionary repeated to
Sir Charles Lyel), the gc !ogist, the
following prayer, offered by a negio
preacher at the ordination of another
negro preacher ; the langungo is na
terse and comprehensive as it is
singular to us.
.Mako lie good like he say. Make
he say like lie good. MNko ho say
like he good, like ho God-!"
That is, "Make him as good as lie
preaches. Afako his preaebing as
good as himself. Mako his preach
ing, make himself as good as God !"
One of the most striking indica
tions of the immorality prevailing
among publio men and in the manage.
ment of great corporations is afforded
by the following passage from the no
port recently mado by the President
of the Western Union 'relegraph Coin.
"The franks issued to Government
officials constitute nearly a third ni
the total complimentary buiiness.
The wires of the Westerni Union
company extend into thirty-sove1n
States and ni.ao Territor imi wit.hin
the limits of the Uited States, an''
into four of the Brilish provinceq. k

'ties and the judicious use of coi.,pli.
ncutary franks among then has boen
the mleans of saving to the comnpany
niany times the money-value of the
free sorvive perforniol."
When a gentleman like Mr. Wil.
liam Orton speaks in this manner of
bribery of public oflicials it becomes
evident that the condition of society
and the idea of honor and d ecoruti
prevailing among thoso who exercise
great trusts are indeed deplorablo.

cannot be sold because there are no

We present this morning a fow ad.

TIhue great Financier in his message
compared South Carolina with sever.
ali other States, to prove the compara.
tively low taxation imnposed upon un.
WVe happen to have the data for com
paring the rates of several States:
Tonnestee, Ohio, Kentucky, M issouri,
andi South Carolina:
Tennessee, $49$.2:l7 724. $3,238l.670
Ohio, 2,285.480.300. 23,626,648
Kentuck y, 6Et4.818 643. 6,710.118A
Missouri, 1,294,90~2,89,7. 13,908,4-18
8. Car olina, 160,000,000. 2,767,675
From this table it will be seen that
the tax rate on the assessed value of
property is for Tennessee, 6.3 mills,
for Ohio, 15 mills, Kentuoky, 9.4
nills, Missouri1 10 mills, South Caro
hia, 17.2 mills. The rich and pros
pornus Sita af mhio is th os. .
it all approaching South Carolina in
lxhorbitaut taxation. (We would
-oark by the way that Ohio has had
Republican Governors for the past
,wenty years and Republican legiF
atures most of that time.)
This comparison assumes that pro.
?orty Is taxed its full value in each
f the States. We believe this as
mmption to be an error.
Gov. Moes states that property is
aassessed in Illinois at 25 per cunt of
.te real valuo. In Californin, real es
tate is aPMotms d at one-third its real
raue. The N, w Y.rk Heald of
he 28th amorta that tle reil valuo of
L lot in Bobton that the givortament
ranted to purchase for the cxs,.iltion
)f the pott oine, was two and a halt
imes the atsssed price. Tthese are
,bree instarces, taken at randomii, tll
tending to prove tLat 1. i I in the
North is a eseed at not more thai
half its real value, and (hat the tax
-ato therefore in only half as much as
vould appear from toe table. On
he other hand, property in S, ti h
Darolina is assessed at tl.o greatest
)essible rate. L.nds are serowed up
;o the highedt pr ice, much more, geni
,rally, than they would briig if sold.
Low many thousanIds of acres would
be sold gladly to-morrow for thoir
assonsed value? We aro informed
hat the Auditors have received in
itructions to allow the property of
iu townlhip to deoroanio in atseascl
,aliue from the ouatimato of the pre
rious year. [in other words, if

The Uion~i-Herald proceeds in this
tyhla at lerngth to denounce the ma
ignity of the Conservative press.
Somec of its remanrks are just. No
Ldvantage ean be gained from mere
nalignity, nor froum intolerance of

roniduct. Wo hiave therefore nto
rymnpathy with a so-called "red-hot"
umtohcrant individual that can see no
ivil in his own belief, or no good in son

disgrace to the honest Republicans of
