VETO OF THE PHOSPHATE BILL.
Wc publish on oar first page to-day the message
of Gov. Scott, vetoing tbe Phosphate Bill. It is
an able, and exhaustive exposure of one of the
worst measures passed by the Legislature, and we
take pleasure in according to Gov. Scott the ful?
lest credit for his prompt action in this matter.
We regret that it failed to effect the defeat of this
iniquitous bill, which was passed over the Gover?
nor's veto by the following vote: Senate?ayes 19,
nays 5; House?ayes 77, nays 24.
THE AIR LUTE RAILROAD.
We learn that a meeting of the Board of Di?
rectors of the "Air Line Railroad in South Caro?
lina" was beld in the city cf Columbia two weeks
ago. President Bcford submitted his report,
which was received as information, and deemed
satisfactory. The prospect for building the Road
within the next two years is highly favorable.
Tbe location of tbe Road from Gainesville, Ga.,
to Chariot tee, N. 0., is as yet undecided. An ex?
perimental line is being ran at this time from our
neighboring town of Greenville to Charlotte. It
}* believed that tbe arrangements of the Company
will shortly enable the Board of Directors to or?
der a survey of the permanent route, from Gaines?
ville through this section of South Carolina. It I
behooves oar people to be ready to meet any de?
mand upon their liberality and enterprise in this
direction, as undoubtedly the location of the
Road depends, in a great measure, upoa local
contributions. If Anderson can excel its neigh?
bors in this regard, we may confidently expect to
obtain the route at or near this place. But a con?
trary coarse, and other couoties will seize the
opportunity to our disadvantage. We feel confi?
dent that tbe pledges heretofore made by tbe peo?
ple of Anderson will be fully redeemed, and that
it is only necessary to give them a fair showing
in the location of the route to obtain substantial
and handsome assistance towards completing this
THE EDITORIAL CONVENTION.
It has been suggested that the anti-Radical press
of 'this State hold a conference, for the purpose of
scoring unity and concert of action on their part
in the coming political campaign. The suggestion
originated with the Columbia Guardian, and has
been endorsed by several influential journals,
while others have virtually dissented from the
proposition. It is further suggested, and agreed
upon by those favoring tbe original proposition,
Ibs t this meeting bt held in Columbia on Wednes?
day next, 16th of March. As the convention has
been called, we think it would be entirely proper
for every anti-Radical newspaper ia the State to
be represented on that occasion, although in our
judgment any decisive actioa would be preamn
ture- in view of the probability that a convention
of the people will be postponed for several months.
Bat, as our Columbia cotemporarv remarks, "there
are considerations of a social and professional
character, which, in themselves, constitute suffici?
ent reasons why the proposed reunion should be
held," and as we have always favored every move
men; of this character, we trust that there will be
a fall representation. An organization of this
kind might have'accomplished much good in the
past, and we throw oat the additional suggestion
that it be made permanent in its character.
The Charleston Neics says that "the press con?
ference, as we understand it, does not contemplate
the putting forth of a platform or any public ac?
tion in regard to the coming elections. The ob?
ject of the conference is to bring the editors of |
tbe anti-Radical papers together, so that they may
interchange views and opinions, and make them?
selves acquainted with the feelings and desires of j
every section of tbe State? A convention or con?
ference which looked to a public declaration of j
policy would be manifestly unwise, but the press
conference may result in incalculable good and
can do no harm." With such an understanding,
we ean all the more heartily endorse the proposed
meeting, and will endeavor to meet our brethren
?9 tbe day designated. j
THE DEMOCRATIC MEMBERS OF THE LEGIS?
The Charleston Daily Republican has often ex?
hibited' a virtuous: indignation again; t the Demo?
cratic press of this State in regard to the whole?
sale charges made by tho latter of bribery and
corruption among the Radical members of the
Legislature. It has repeatedly asked that these
charges be made in a definite manner, and has
urged that ? single instance of corrupt '.nd un?
faithful practice be pointed out. Its columns
hare been freely used in denunciation of Demo?
cratic newspapers for making wholesale charges of
this character, without substantiating them with
adequate proof Mat snob things existed among
the Radical members. And yet we find this teach?
er of "great moral ideas" sending forth a similar
charge against the Democratic members of the
Legislature, without adducing a single proof or
designating a solitary member who is guilty of
improper conduct. In reviewing the work of that
body, "to see how they have administered upoo
the trusts reposed in them by the people," the Re?
publican nses the following unequivocal language:
. "We have the strongest testimpn^ that nearly ev?
ery Democratic member of the General Assembly
sold their votes in the most ?-ottenly corrupt way."
As to the charge, we are confident that it is false
and malicions in every particular. But we have
no desire to screen any member of tbe Democratic
party by a simple denial, and therefore call upon
the Republican to introduce its "strongest testimo?
ny" before the public, in order that the people
may know "how they (the Democratic members)
have administered upon the trusts reposed in
them." In all fairness, that journal is compelled
to establish its broad allegation, as otherwise it
will stand convicted of making an inexcusable ac
j cusatiou against political opponents, purely for
In the same article from which we have quoted,
the Republican says that "we cannot shut our eyes
to the fact that there were men in that General
Assembly who were corrupt," and acknowledges
that some of its own party "went down before
temptation." Hence, it cannot be replied that the
Democratic newspapers have failed to establish
bribery and corruption, for here is a frank ad?
mission from the Radical organ that these charges
In behalf of the Democratic party, it is deman?
ded that this reckless charge against its members
be proven. Failure to do this will stigmatize its
author as a slanderer of the vilest nature, an un?
worthy member of the newspaper fraternity, and
a partisan of the baser sort.
NEWSPAPERS AHB PERIODICALS.
Rural Carolinian.?Tho March number of
this sterling monthly is, as usual, promptly before
us, and fully sustains its reputation. It has seve?
ral particularly noteworthy papers. An article
from the pen of Gen. Johnson Ha good, of Barn
well, on "Preparation of Land for Cotton," con?
tains timely suggestions, backed np by the neces?
sary facts and figures. In tbe same connection,
"The Premium Cotton Crop" and "A Method of
Planting and Cultivating Cotton" are worthy of
earnest attention from the planter. Some hints
on the "Cultivation of the Castor Bean and
Bene" for oil, by Gen. E.P. Alexander, suggests
another means of diversifying our industry.
A beautifully illustrated article on the best breeds
of Fowls, entitled "Poultry Farming for the
South," will be interesting and profitable to all
who are fond of eggs and chickens. The editor's
"Suggestive Facts" should Bet onr people to
thinking. We hope they will beed the warning
embodied in the article, and not neglect every?
thing else to plant cotton. We are glad to see
that the publishers have been fortunate enough to
secure contributions from that accomplished ar?
chitect, Alex. Y. Lee, of Columbia, who furnish?
es an excellent design for a dwelling-house in the
present number. The "Rural" is published by
Walker, Eaass & Cogswell and D. Wtatt
Aikf.n, Charleston, 8. C. Two dollars a year.
Sot'TiiERN Farm and Home.?This is another
new candidate for the "suffrages" of the Southern I
planter and farmer. It is published at Macon,
Go., by J. W. Burks & Co., and is edited with
rare ability by Gee W?. M. Browne, a well
known journalist of excellent literary reputation.
Its pages are filled with practical matter, and
handsome illustrations embellish each number.
It was commenced in November last, and has
already attained a prominent place among the ag?
ricultural periodicals. The March number has
been received, and any of our friends wishing to
examine the work are invited to call at this office, j
Two dollars per annum.
The useful and beautiful are admirably com?
bined in tbe March number of the American Ag?
riculturist. We have so often endorsed this excel?
lent publication as to make it unnecessary to
enlarge upon its merits at this time. Terms,

The Census.?The census of the State, as com?
piled io 1869, has beea completed and published.
In 1860, the total population of the State was
708,708. In 1869, tbe total population is set
down at 661,099, showing an actual decrease of
population in nine years of 42,609. Decrease of
whites, 16,427 ; decrease of colored, 26,182. The
relative decrease of the two races, as compared
with the total number of each in 1860 and 1869,
is greatest among tbe colored people, notwith?
standing the casualties of war and the unusual
amount of emigration among the whites.
In 1860, the total population of Anderson coun?
ty was 22,878, and in 1869 it was 21,125?an in?
crease of 252. During this period of nine years
the whites have decreased 214, and the colored
population has increased 466. The voting popu?
lation of Anderson is as follows : whiles, 2623 ;
colored, 1492, making a majority of 1161 whites.
Total number of votes in Anderson, 4145.
The total number of voters in the State is
148,716, divided as follows: whites, 69.301;
colored, 89,415. Majority of colored voters,
EIGHTH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT.
The new code of procedure adopted by the Leg?
islature was amended so as to trunsfer the county
of Abbeville to this Judicial Circuit. We extend
a hearty welcome to our neighbors. It is a natu?
ral alliance, and we trust will prove conducive to
the welfare of all concerned. Says the Abbeville
Tress and Danner:
"Without making invidious comparisons, we
may be permitted to congratulate the bar and
people of our District upon the change. Judge
Orr has already earned our respect by his legal
ability, and by his untiring: judicial labors in our
midst, and we should esteem ourselves fortunate
in having him for our presiding Judge."

form his patrons that be will be absent until the

tbe story whan wo read tbe resolution.
The FUtsburg Pott, the leading Democratic
newspaper in Western Pennsylvania, believing
that the victory of the party depends upon per?
sistence and a sound policyt makes the following
suggestions as to the future- course of the Democ?
racy in relation to. the- issues presented;
' 1. To ignore dead issuer, but never abate a sin
2. A firm reliance in the Constitution, and a
restoration of its vital functions where they have
been impaired by Radical legislation.
3. Equal taxation ; the strictest maintenance of
the public faith: a common currency for the whole
people, founded upon a sound and reliable basis ;
placing the public debt upon the basis demanded
by justice and sound financial policy; the creation
of a public revenue founded upon Just principles,
and the abolition of present iniquitous aud op-?
pressive revenue laws.
4. The protection of industry against the op?
pressions of a moneyed monopoly.
6. A reduction of office holders, and a conse?
quent cessation of the present extravagant expen?
ditures of the general, as well as State and muni?
6. A reduction of taxes, and adequate legisla?
tion to compel the holders of the public indebted?
ness to bear their proper share of tbe burdens of
sustaining the Government.
7. A just and equitable system of representation
in Congress, by which the New England States
shall not be allowed a disproportionate number of
Representative and Senators, and the Westshall
receive its just proportion.
8. The restoration of the States to an equal
footing in the Union, and the abrogation of all
test oatiis and disfranchising enactments, either
by Congress or so-called Slate Legislatures or
Conventions. A free government, maintained and
perpetuated by free ballot.
9. A strict definition, according to the letter and
spirit of the Constitution, of the powers, rights
nnd duties of each of the three co-ordinate
branches of the Government, confining each with?
in its proper sphere, and repressing each in its
aggressions upon the other.
The Pott is of the opinion that on such a line
of policy as is here indicated there would be re
emits enough from the liberal and conservative
wing of the Republican party to insure a majority
in the lower House of the next Congress, and ul?
timately to accomplish the overthrow of the Radi?
Immigration-.?The following letter from Gen?
eral John A. Wagener, covering one from Mr.
Hendricks, the general freight and ticket agent of
the South Carolina Railroad, shows the progress
now making towards directing the stream of Euro?
pean immigration to our shores. General Wage?
ner is working hard in the good cause, and we
trust that his efforts will be seconded in the way
that he suggests :
To the Editor of the Newt:
Through the kind exertions of Mr. L. C. Hen?
dricks, general freight and ticket agent South Car?
olina Railroad, the very acceptable and important
arrangement, which his enclosed letter explains,
has been effected, thus rendering Charleston, as a
port of entry, a cheaper connection of the great
West than any other Atlantic city.
I would respectfully suggest to our merchants
and people generally to give this fact the utmost
publicity, wherever, in Europe or elsewhere, their
correspondence may extend. It will have its influ?
ence after awhile. Respectfully yours,
March 4, 1870. John A. Wagsneb.
Charleston S. C, March 1, 1870.
General John A. Wagener:
Dear Sia?Having heard from connecting roads,
I beg to reply to your communication of tbe 19th
February. We can furnish immigrants with
through tickets from this city to Saint Louis, Mis?
souri, for $10 00 each, and children from four to
twelve years at half rates, when travelling in num?
ber of ten or more. One hundred pounds of bag?
gage allowed to each full passenger, and fifty cents
per one huudred pounds for all extra by rail to
Memphis. From Memphis to Saint Louis by steam
twenty-five cents per one hundred for extra.
Very respectfully yours,

Wuittemore's Impudence.?A Washington dis?
patch of Wednesday says:
"Whittcraorc leaves here to-morrow morning for
his district in South Carolina, to commence the
canvass for a re-election to the House. He takes
with him a large sum of money to aid in his elec?
tion, the funds baring been subscribed by Repub?
lican senators and others. He says he has receiv?
ed numerous dispatches from prominent men in
his district proffering support, and assuring him
that he can be re-elected. On the other hand, it
is said that Republican members of the House dis?
countenance Whittemore's effort to be re-elected,
and that he will be prosecuted under the statute,
making his acts as to cadetships punishable by
fine and imprisonment. A verdict and judgment
of guilty would disqualify Mr. Whittemore from
The New York Herald exclaims : "How utterly
void of all sense of the respect due to the
world's opinion must they be, und hold Whitte?
more to be, who now argue that that ousted mem?
ber will return on a new election!"
And the Tribune bluntly declares : "We repudi?
ate utterly the idea that any sensible constituen?
cy will re-elect members to the same House which
has just been cheated out of the opportunity of
expelling them by the trick of their resignation.
That would be a very elaborate invitation indeed
to prompt expulsion on sight!"
SS$~ We commend the following sensible para?
graph from the Cheraw Democrat to our farming
"If the present decline in the price of cotton
will have the effect of causing the planters to plant
more corn, it will be fortunate for the country.
We doubt the prosperity of any farmer who has
his bread to buy at any price. Certain it is that
the price of cotton is too precarious that a man
should expend all the labor of a year, relying up?
on it alone for the year's supply of breadstuff's.
We have not heard of any one yet who, if he can
eat cotton seed himself, will be willing to feed his
family, or even attempt to fatten his stock on it.
The old rule of making sure of bread and then
planting whatever else the farmer might choose is
decidedly the best, and it will have a great effect
in bringing up the price of cotton, too."
How it was Done.?Hon. John Quincy Adams
delivered an addresf before the "Conptituiiorial
Club" of Boston on the 22nd of February. Al?
luding to o proposition mr.de in the Massachusetts
Legislature, a few days before, to fire a hundred
guns on Boston Common in honor of the passage
of the Fifteenth Amendment, Mr. Adams said :
"I was only sorry that I was not in the Legisla?
ture to propose, as an amendment to it, that the
United Slates be humbly solicited to allow the
State of Massachusetts to fire that salute from
Fort Warren, and that the guns might be shotted,
in order to show the process by which the amend?
ment had been carried."
Matrimonial.?The frequent allusions to this
subject of late by the bachelor editor of the Ab.
beville Press and Banner we regard as somewhat
ominous. He must be going the way of all sensi?
ble men, although we had nearly given him over
to his "hardness of heart." Hear him in the last
issue of that paper :
In the absence of other items of local interest,
we would call the attention of our readers to the
increased excitement in the matrimonial market.
We refer to the Hymeneal column for the last quo?
tations. Gold is declining?Cotton is going down
?but Cupid stands firm. Vive Vamour.
Woman Suffrage.?Minnesota will be the first
State to declare for woman suffrage. Tbe Senate,
by a vote ot nineteen to twelve, has concurred in
the House bill which makes provision for submit?
ting to the men and women of the State, an amend?
ment to the Constitution, on the question of wo?
man suffrage. Tbe bill provides that the ballots
of the ladies shall be taken in separate boxes. It
is understood that Governor Austin will eign it.

The Wilcox, Gibbs & Co.'s Manipulated
Guano more reliable than any other ma?
According to my experiments this year tbe Wil?
cox,Gibbs & Co.'s Manipulated Guano is my choice,
from the fact that it is more applicable to any and
all kinds of land than any other I know. Some of
my neighbors have used pure Peruvian, some Sol?
uble Pacific, and various others. They tell me
that mine surpasses theirs. I believe the Peruvi?
an is better than any other where tho land is low
and moist, but to take land generally that is rich
or poor, moist or thirsty, stiQjor loose, altogether,
the Manipulated is more reliable than any other
I know. I am confident the manner of applying
the manure is to put it deep, especially on thirsty
land, and I believe 400 lbs. to the acre is the
quantity?less, I know, will pay, as I have tests
of it, but 400 lbs. pays better. According to the
seasons and chances generally of my cotton up to
this time, I do not believe better cotton could be
made to grow on the land where I have used the
