'THE SOUTH CAROLINA RAILROAD.
The gratifying intelligence liasfteachcd us of the
completion of this Road to Columbia. The iron
for the Greenville and Columbia Itoad, for some
time in Charleston awaiting transportation, can
now be brought into use, and wc feel assured that
the energy and activity of the officers will speedily
cause the rebuilding of the few miles necessary to
complete tho link of through travel to our commer?
cial metropolis, with tho hare exception of the
Broad River Bridge. Even this obstacle wo hopo

A TRUE MAN AND A TRUE NEWSPAPER.
If there is any man, or any journal at the North,
says the South Carolinian, to whom and to which
the gratitude of the Southern people is due for con?
stant, brave, unyiolding adherence to their cause
in weal and in woe, that man is the Hon. Bkxja
min Wood, and that journal tho New York Daily
News. From the beginning he encountered oppo?
sition : from the beginning lie fought as boldly for
the principles of Southern Independence, as if the
stars and bars were throwing their shadows ath
?i wart the building in which lie wrote. And if any
man in tho country deserves honor for his motives,
admiration for his courage, and encouragement for
his labors, it is he who in the midst of enemies al?
ways dared to call us friends. As a Southern
journaL?a paper adapted in lone and completeness,
in sentiment and selection to tho wants of the
Southern people, there is he-daily published at the
North which approaches in attractiveness tho New
York News. It is already circulating by thousands
in every State in the South, but we desire to see it
in every household. The subscription price is
moderate, the news general, the editorials admira?
ble, and merchant, planter and mechanic alike will
find themselves interested in and instructed by Ub
eolumns.
LOCAL ITEMS.
The Streets.?The Town Council of Anderson
has awarded the contract for placing and keeping
the streets in repair to our friend, Mr. John* L.
Arxold, who has gone to work with commendable
zeal and energy to effect the reform which has been
80 long and sadly needed. This is gratifying in?
telligence to all whose peregrinations led them to
traverse the hitherto misorable apologies for high?
ways and by ways in this village.
Free Schools.?Wo learn that the Boanl of |
Commissioners, at their meeting on Monday last,
located thirty-three Schools. The rate established
by them is ?10 per scholar.
-Firs.?-Early on Tuesday morning the alarm of]
fire assembled quite a number of villagers to the
residence of Mr. L. T. Arnold, on Main street,
from whenco smoko was issuing freely. It seems
fiat; from an unknown origin, firo was communi?
cated to (he clothing in tho young ladies' room,
second story of the building, and but for the timely
presence of one-of tho ladies, the flames might have
made such progress as to rosult in a total corifla
gration of the residence. Promptness and energy
soon caused the fire to be extinguished, with the
loss, however, of considerable wearing apparel.
Evacuated.?For months past there has been an
eyo-soro existing on the body corporate of this vil?
lage, in the shape of an unlicensed and unrestricted
occupation of a prominent building upon the pub?
lic square by scores of frcedmcn, of all ages and
both sexes. Their simple and quiet occupation
would have disturbed no one, but uproarious and
indecent conduct on their part was certainly an
annoyance to the community, and tho " Frcedmcu's
Bureau " on the corner of Main street, south side
of the square, was becoming famous for its broils
and disturbances. However, ',' all things have an
end," and we arc gratified to make the announce?
ment that Tuesday last witnessed the conclusion of ]
this omnium gatherum. Pursuant to orders from
the military, the inmates of this disreputable re?
sort were ejected from the house as aforesaid, but
not until they had received repeated warnings to
procuro homes elsewhere. Wo arc gratified at this
evidence that idleness, vagrancy and their atten?
dant erilswill not bo tolerated by the "powers
ihat be."
Pro Tew.?We learn that during the temporary
absence^! Lieut. J. Chase, jr., who is in atten?
dance upon tho Military Commissior. now silting in
Charleston, the Provost Marshal's c?icc at this
place is in charge of Lieut. J. E. A sue, of tho First
Maine Battalion.
Board to Ait-rove Contracts.?The following
is the organization of the Board of Commissioners
to approve contracts between citizens and frcedmcn.
The Board is in session on every Tuesday, Friday
nud Saturday :
Lieut. J. E. As he, Chm*n., John B. Moore and
Elijah AVebb, Esqs., Citizen members.
Printe^forms of contract can be had on applica?
tion to either member of the Board.
" To Ttir* Editor?With compliments of S. Hyde,
Corner Benson House." Such was the superscrip?
tion placed upon a coupio of mysterious packages
found on the Editor's table yesterday. Wo have
heard of infernal machines, and their desfructivc
ness being concealed in this manner; and it was
only a few days ago that some patriot and well
wisher for his country attempted the life of a
Massachusetts Senator, the redoubtable Sumxee.
We eyed the packages suspiciously?turned them
over carefully, inspected their size and conjectured
their contents. Mr. Hyde is a gentleman, we know,
and would not maliciously perpetrate the worst
crime known to human laws. But then "discre?
tion is the bitter part of valor,", and it was decided
that the packages remain unopened until this mys?
terious circumstance is heralded to the world
through the columns of the Intelligencer, and if the
result of the examination produces the death of tho
editor and printers interested, then will surviving
friends know to whom tho lamentable occurrence
is to be attributed, and of courso Hyde will be ar?
rested and brought to punishment.
In the meantime, while awaiting the denouement
of this singular incident, the reader is advised to
search our columns for the adveitincincnt of S.
Hyde, a.id afterwards ex. .-.line tho choice assort- j
ment of g-o*" on hand at Cumcr'of the Ben?
son House. His prices are greatly reduced, which
p. decided attraction to purchasers.
RETROSPECTIVE.
It "were well for posterity tlint. the present gen?
eration of Southerners should -obtain lessons of
wisdom from the past, and endeavor to impress
?upon the new social and political systems now gov?
erning nono of thoso effoteand impotent ideas ren?
dered obsolete hy the vast changes of untoward
events, llilhorto, it has been considered rare and
exceptional for lalont, energy and industry, with?
out the combination of wealth, totnttain the full
measure of success and renown in the South. This
has always been crroneons, in our humble opinion,
for there arc thousands of Instances all through the
records of statesmanship where this heinous doc?
trine is controverted. Cut its very prevalence,
and the tame acquiescence of aspiring and ambi?
tious young men in its truth, almost engrafted it
permanently upon the people. We conceive that,
with the different relations now existing, there
will arise from the ashes of the decayed past a to?
tally opposite theory; and it is for the purpose of
directing attention to the evils accruing heretofore,
that we are induced to ventilate a few thoughts
upon this subject.
Prior to the war, it was entirely too common for
the people, especially of South -Carolina, to rely
upon certain prominent individuals for the forma?
tion of opinions, local and national. Public af?
fairs were entrusted alone to the care of such as
were chosen to represent them in tho Stato and
Federal Legislatures, and very often the promul
gation of views from these agents of the people
firmly bound the action of nine-tenths of the
masses. Polities were briefly and hastily con?
sidered and the conduct of politicians loosely re?
garded, for indubitable proof of this proposition,
it is only necessary to cite theprominent instance
of the disrnpturc of the Democratic party. -Here
there was no clear and definite expression of South
Carolina, but only the absorbing clement of such
ns choose to take the lead. We would not be uiis
undcrstoo.l, however, in bringing forwiird this in?
stance. Undoubtedly, the political education of
the masses induced them to endorao the poliey
when they consummated the act of secession. Yet,
the history of that naked measure?dismcmber
moni of tho Democratic party?proves that the
people were not then informed sufficiently as to
their interests and the great issues involved. They
relied too implicitly upon the ipxc dait of this or
that public man, and careless and iudifferent on
the subject, another stride brought them to face
the issue of secession or submission to sectional
rule. When this came, there was but one re?
sponse. It was then too late to exercise preven?
tive measures, and there was no alternative before
us.
If these assumptions arc right, then is it not
clearly the duty of every lover of his section and
country to shape his future course so as to avoid
the shoals and qui;ksnnds upon which the vessel
was rent in twain ? Must not the leaders hereaf?
ter be held to a strict account for their official con?
duct? AVe think so, and believe that it is high
timo the sovereign voice of the people should be
directed to the expression of an earnest determi?
nation that the revolutionized system of public
policy shall obtain a different impetus from them
directly. If those who have been trusted and hon?
ored with public confidence heretofore, have not
fulfilled their missions worthily, displace them
with new men, and sustain the indelible resolution
that only thoso who recognize the supremacy of
the governed shall fill the high offices and execute
important trusts.
Above all, encourage tho lamlablo ambition
which induces the youthful strength and vigor of
the land to deserve your confidence. Let it not
be said that the men who jerillcd life and limb in
in your defence arc to beset aside for the advance?
ment of others less worthy, by their own: deeds
and actions. Rcalizo the stern mandate which
has created this mighty upheaval of society, and
be prepared to act and think in the future for
yourselves. With an enlightened and well-inform?
ed population, to direct and govern the leaders,
wo may truly bclicvo that the prosperity and re?
nown of the past will be far exceeded by the fu?
ture of our beloved State.

1HE MILLS HOUSE.
For several weeks the card of this superior and
well-managed Hotel?one of the adornments of our
Queen Cify?has appeared in our columns, and we
tnko pleasure in directing the attention of the trav?
eling community to tho advantages and facilities
afforded by tho establishment. Located in conve?
nient distanco of tho business portion of the city,
refitted and re-furnished siucc the war closed, and
in charge of gcutlcmen who " know how to keep a
hotel," wo are fully persuaded that the Mills House
cannot be excelled anywhere in the South. The
Proprietor, Mr. Joseph E. Flrcei.t., is not person?
ally known to us, but we have the pleasure of nn
acquaintance with one of his chief assistants, Mr.
Tnos. P. Slider, formerly of the Xcwbcrry Sim,
who is an experienced editor and of course au ftiit
in all things, hotel-keeping included.

Pexdivetox Factory.?We extract the following
from tho last issue of the Greenville Enterprise :
We learn thabghc Pcndleton Factory, near An?
derson Court House, has recently changed hands,
Mossr3. Grapv, Hawthorn & Perry, proprietors
of McBee's Factory in this District, being the pur?
chasers. Prico ?31,500.00. It will be started in
a few days upon yarn exclusively, to the full ex?
tent of its capacity?about ouo hundred bunches
per day.
The style of the firm will be Perry, Hawthorn
& Graby. Mr. Perry, the Agent, is now having
the machinery put in good working order, and ex?
pects, in a few days, to supply the demands in that
vicinity with good yarn.
He expects, for the present, to make his home at
the Pcndleton Factory, though he will retain the
supervision of thcMc?KE'a Factory. They intend
to put it on fine goods so soon as the necessary
machinery can be had.
The building is brick?50 by 150 feet and two
stories high. There is ample room for 3,000 spin?
dles with looms. Locality as i3 well known, is
healthy and good, being immediately onthcilluc
Ridge Railroad. In connection with the Factory,
there are t'.UO acres of splendid land attached to it,
and the company intend to construct buildings new
and upon an improved style.
?-o-?.
The New York Express .says : " The crop of cot?
ton tnxcd'in 1SGC, we predict, will be very much
larger than was anticipated six months since, and
if we mistake not, white labor alone will raise one
third of the old crop. Tennessee, North Carolina
and Arkansas, will raise a great deal of cotton in
this way, and the Tennessccans arc wisely devo?
ting themselves mainly to cotton production. It
is certain that for two or three years hardly any?
thing will pay better. The experience of the civil
; war. and the combined skill and capital of the Old
World, has proved that the United States can have
no rival in a cotton producing country."
General Grant expresses the opinion that the
1 necessities of maintaining a large military force in
tho South no longer exists, and while he desires to
keep there an army sufficient to quell all outbreaks
that may occur, he believes that a material reduc?
tion can be made with safely.
1HE COTTON QUESTION.
It is a subject for congratulation dial tlierc arc i
a few men. anil a portion of the journals in the J
North, who rightly- appreciate the magnitude of
interests involved in the solution of the labor ques?
tion in the South, and wo hail with satisfaction
the promulgation of souud, practical views among
those people where there is a constant effort made
to produce false impressions and instil erroneous
ideas into tho public mind as to the policy of the
Government at this time. The Bostou Journal has
the following commentary upon the cotton inter?
est and its alliance with the future negro popula?
tion of the South. Coming from that self-righte?
ous and narrow-minded vicinage, wo think "it
worthy of perusal by our readers, as in striking
contrast with the visionary and impractical views
so frequently emanating from that peculiar sec?
tion:
Our imports arc enormous, and according to all
present indications, will continue so ; and yet, so
far as we hear, little or nothing is doing to supply
ourselvcs with the only article which is suro to bo
in demand for export, and which we have always
depended upon mainly for the settlement of out?
balances with other countries. Surely, in view of
its financial bearings, there is no question which
so legitimately comes within the notico of our com?
mercial organizations as that of the future supply
of cotton; and, important as tho subjects now
pressing upon the attention of Congress, no one is
more worthy than this of the most careful con?
sideration, and of tho most prompt aud vigorous
legislation.
We have'no desire to disparage the claims of
other measures before Congress and the country;
hut which of them all, like this, involves the in?
dustry of millions of people, and the lives of per?
haps hundreds of thousands ? Not now to mention
the welfare of the white population of the South,
which, by every call of duty and interest wc.of the
S?rth, nnd the Government, especially, are bound
to promote in all proper ways, the happiness and
prosperity, yes, the very existence of the colored
race, require at once that the relations of labor be
organized and defined ; that idleness and vagrancy
be counteracted, and that industry be encouraged
and sustained. The estimates of the mortality
among these poor creatures, who were but just
now rejoicing in their newly acquired freedom,
are most affecting and alarming.
In some portions of the South twenty-five per
cent, of the manumitted slaves arc said to be dy?
ing; in Georgia the proportion is believed to be
still larger. Is it too much to suppose, in view of
all the information now coming to hand, that
throughout the Southern States ten per cent, of
the freed population will have gone to their graves
before next spring ? This would ho four hundred
thousand ; equal to the number of inhabitants of
Boston and all its suburbs. Can wc fold our hands
and be indifferent while this dreadful mortality is
going on ? Are wc not responsible, in some meas?
ure, for the lives of those men, women nnd chil?
dren whom we have virtually taken under our
guardianship; and who, throughout the war,
looked so loyally toward the Government, aud so
expectantly aud trustfully to us ? It was a noble
utterance made in our 'hearing not many weeks
since, by the highest authority in the land, that
the truest humanity is tho safest political econo?
my. By helping to save the laboring classes of
tho South from needless and untimely death, wo
shall assist in saving untold wealth to the South
and to !'.ie North ; aud wc shall contribute largely
to the speedy- and satisfactory solution of difficult
political problems which now threaten to becoino
more difficult and unmanageable by tho aggrava?
ting circumstances of poverty and perhaps of an?
archy.
-iO
Akiikst of Mosnr.?Col. John S. Mosby, whose
dash and daring during the war rendered him con?
spicuous among the partisan leaders of the South,
has bceu singled out by the War Department for
persecution under the still arbitrary system of
military rule. Col. Mosby, after having been pa
rolciUwith the other officers of Gen. Lee's Army,
retired to his home in Fauquier, and engaged in
the practice of the law. Accepting the defeat of
the cause to which ho had been devoted, he asked
only the privilege of pursuing an honorable voca?
tion as a quiet and law abiding citizen. This has
been denied him. Wc learn that ho iias been ar?
rested by military authority, conveyed to Washing?
ton, and thrown into prison, in violation of the
terms of his parole. It is alleged that the charge
against him is that he caused the cxccution,of two
Federal soldiers during the war, in retaliation for
the murder of some of his own men. What if tho
charge be true?were there not many similar in?
stances of retaliation on the part of Federal Com?
manders ? Is it possible that the War Department
proposes to search the gloomy record of civil strife
to drag every cuso of Con federate retaliation be?
fore "'a military tribunal? Col. Mosby did not
shed blood for pastime, or to gratify a savage na?
ture. He was a soldier and subject to the stern
discipline of war. If, in-his judgment or that of
his superiors, the exigencies of tho strife, under
flic martial code, demanded a military execution,
he but fulfilled a soldier's duty in carrying the
harsh sentence into effect. The gcntlo eyes of
Peace should not dwell with severe scrutiny upon
the terrible routine of war, for it is impossible, in
such retrospection, to appreciate the necessities or
the sense of justice that provoked retaliation.
Blood enough has been shed to satisfy even ven
gence ; justice demands no further suffering, and
policy forbids its infliction upon men who are be?
loved and honored by the Southern people. If wc
would be friends with I hem, wc must not brand
and persecute their heroes.?A'. 1'. Newt.
Mas. Stonewall Jackson's Reply to tos Citi?
zens or Texas.?Wcgivc place to the following
beautiful response to Mrs. General Jackson to the
tribute of citizens of Houston, Texas :
" Richmond, V.l., Jan. S, 1SCC.
" Messrs. Beli .j- Read:
" Gentlemen ??Your note inclosing a letter
from Mr. John Dickinson of Houston, Texas, for?
warding a draft $526 in gold, and a certificate of
deposit from you. has been received. Mr. Dickin?
son requests that the proceeds of the same bo
placed at my disposal, and says the amount was
contributed by a portion of the citizens of Texas,
at. tho instance of some ladies, daughters of the
1 Old Dominion.'
" As I have not the means of knowing who these
kind friends and noble daughters of Virginia arc,
I must through you, express my heartfelt thanks
to them for this testimonial of love and honor to
my lamented husband, nnd would thank you to
convey them the strongest expression of my grati?
tude. That their reward may be far greater than
this noble net of generosity to the widow and fath?
erless, and that the choicest blessings of Heaven
may ever rest upou each one of these kind hearts,
is the prayer of " Yours, very truly.
MBS. T. J. JACKSON."
