This exhibit is very meagre, giving

even votohed f6r'un'dr on'th tiy the
treasurer. How is to be tnown
whether this truly represents the
amoontb fid'ive'd snd disburged ?
Such great 1didrepancy exists be
tween the 'aliouut viswessed anid the
amount ported 6s rdceived, that
grave doubts arisu na to 'where the
'balance h ae gonie'.
The;property of thlo State tvas as
sessod latt 3 ear at $176,000,000.
Taxes were collected (,ays the troas
urer) on only $135,033.34. leaving
the enormouS'amount of na $4,
000,Otb'to'be 'accounted for by nulla
bona returns and fd-faitires at tax
sales. This frightful discrepancy of
25 pbr cent, shows how oppressive
ring iulo hirt 'liecome. Oivner's of
one-fbtirth, the property in South
Carolina ivere unable to pay taxes,
atnd hi-d their-property confiscated.
It inay be urged that a large por
tion of taxes was stolen by County
treastirors. Th's a'iawr to this is
that Ca'rdaa inid Me.lton-, two prom:.
nent apostles of 'fore, hav'e indict
ed but two lflaanroes who are accu.
cd of the embezzlomont of about
$50,00. It would be impossible for
any other treasurer to be defaulters,
or they would ero 'this have been
brought to justine. The treasurqr
must show tWe' taipayers' exactly
how this d iscrepenoy ekists, 'or his
statements will be taken with a grain
of salt. The 'people are *oary of
paying ruinous ta'xes and receiving
only mneagre, unsatisfactory reports
of how their tzionty *as expended.
But admitti~tg thie stat'eint of the
treasurer is correct, it appears that
$1,636,086.38 were collected and
1l,458,l52.32 were expended leavih g
a balance of $178,532.06. Of this
balance, $l35,0O00 were iet aside to
pay initerest on thre public debt under
the new consolidating act, 29,000 are
due the charitable and peatrl associa
tionsi Atnd 4l11,600 for salarieh. Trhe~
eschool money has all been expended]
except a few dollars.
Ov t million and a 'half 'of del
lars have bedn ivrrn'g from a plun
dered people, a sum large enough to
administer the affairs of four States
like South. Car'olina'. And yet, the
State ci-edit le dead, the treasury is
bankrupt, the charitable institutions
are languiashing,. schools aire closed,
anid oourts Are run~ en credit. A
beautfXul picture for the r adical pa rty
to show en the eve of the campaign.
Arnd had they sn iutb'lligint consti
