stated that the bonis of thc county treasurer
had been rejected by tho county commission?

Attorney-General, and asked that tho law bc
amended so that the Attorney-General should
have no such supervising power. In a report
made by the Attorney-General to the commit?
tee on tho subject, that officer says :
The bond of Mr. Haves, duly executed, wa s
presented to the Board of Comity Commission?
ers of Lexington County for their approval.
The board refused to approve it. Mr. Hayes
then presented it to mo and asked me to ap?
prove it. Upon evidence satisfactory to me,
but especially upon the certificate of his Honor
Judge Boez/r, to the effect that tho sureties
wore amply sufficient, I exercised tho authority
conferred cm me by tho second section of the
act entitled "An act to exton I tho timo for

I certainly have no apology to ofT.-r to the
Grand Jury of Lexington County for my action.
Tho case of Mr. Hayes was plainly one of tho
cases which the Legislature intended to pro?
vide for when conferring th: power upon meto

Wc desire to say a few words more with es?
pecial regard to tho manufacture of cotton
fabnes and yarns in South Carolina, and will
then leave the subject for tho present in tho
hands of our readers. It is a matter in which
we have a deep interest, and this it is which
induces us to try to pcrsuide the people of
South Carolina to embark their surplus moans
in manufactures, and particularly in thc spin
Ding of then' own cotton. We aro fully satis?
fied that it is the very best thing they can do,
and we are convinced of its practicability by
our own experience, as well as by thc state?
ments lately made by some of tai largest and
most competent manufacturers of New Eng?
land, who say that wo can and do produco
goods in South Carolina and Georgia cheaper
than th',., can be produced in Rhode Island
THE VIEWS OF SENATOR SPilAOUE.
If ourpcoplo will not believe us, let them
listen to tho words ot the largest cotton man?
ufacturer in America, Senator Sprag.ie. of
Rhode Island. This gentleman, at a dinner
party given to him tho other day at the '
Charleston Hotel, by a few of our leading citi?
zens, said that "it would surprise the people
of the South, and still moro surprise the peo?
ple of the North, to know,-what is a fact,-that
the best cotton factory of its size aud kind in
America is to be found in the city of Augusta,
Georgia; and that in looking at tho subject
fiom a manufacturer's paint of view, taking
the productions per hand and per spindle, and
comparing them with the work in other mills
running on tho same class of goods, ho found
that these Southern goods were equil to aDy
ol their kind seon in the Northern markets."
THE SOUTH AND THE INDIAN TABN TBADE.
But this is not all. Senator Sprague went
oa to say that "you"-meaning the Southern
people-"can do what we"-meaning the peo?
ple of New England-"cannot do. With your
?rreat advantages you can compete with Eng?
land for her Indian yarn trade. You ought to
3pin a large part of your crop and ship it in
that state, instead of shipping the raw ma- .
Let our readers remember those very im?
portant statements, for they come from the
largest American spinner-a man of wide ob-,
servation and fully conversant with the things
jf which he speaks, and a man friendly enough
;o us to tell us what he knows to be to our
jest interests to understand. We trust that
Senator 8prague will purdon us for quoting
lis remarks as we have done, and feel that
;heir publication is justified by the vast im?
portance of the eubjoct, and the weight which
lis opinion upon it must have with an intelli
rent public. Wo may add that the views of 1
Jenator Sprague are fully sustained by every
arge Eastern manufacturer who has visited :
he fae torios of this State and Goorgia during 1
ho present year.
WHAT HAS B2EN AND CAN BE.
It is also well known, and admitted io bo
i fact beyond controversy, that the most
uccesaful cotton factory in tho United States,
leforo the wa? was that at 8aclbyville, Ton- :
lessee, which was run outircly by uegro slaves,
iverseed by their mxstora. This factory made
uoney when others lost, and mado largo gains
rnen others mado small prouts. And yat in- '
elligent men aro to be found, oven in Charles -
on, who do not, nay will not, believe that it is
lossiblc for us to suceso! as cotton nnnufac
Tue difference iu favor from sjiiuuiu,: our
wu cotton, from savings in froight, waste,
rom cheaper labor, mildness of clinuto,and
nany other causes, amounts to fully fifteen por
eut. This fifteen per cent., in itself a large
irofit, is tho advantage which we have over
lew England. Our water power is limitless.
?ho salubrity of our middle aud mountain
ountry is such that wa scarcely need tho phy
ician, and our neit'hooring white population,
/hon drawn into connection and instructed in
heir work, as has been done at Grauitevillo
nd many oth?r places, aro inf-'rior to none in
he world. And this class of labor is much
arger in the South than ii commonly be?

Are the yeoplo of South Carolina willing
lager to remain :iierely tho producers of raw

a others for every manufactured article ? Wc
rust not. We behove that thc war has taught I
LS better, and t?o.t a now order of things is
awning which before long will produco great \
esults. Lat the Kalmia .Mills be liuished; lot I
'auclusc be rebuilt; let other factories be start- 1
don the splendid water-power at Columbia, ,
.ow offered for salo by the State. Let us spin <
ur own cotton; make and manufacture our own 1
ron; manufacturo our osvn phosphates; build
ur own locomotives, cars, wagons tiudploughs; (
aake our own sashes, doors, blinds, buckets,
irooms and shoes; iu Bhort, let us as a people,
?hile we devoto greater attention than ever
o such lauds as wo do plant, not bo satisfied
rith being merely au agricultural St itc, but
Liversify our industries, aud diversify even
ur agricultural pursuits. Let it no longer bc j
aid that while hickory grows on every farm
mr axe handles aro made in Missouri; and
rhile kaolin abounds in the State, every plate
m our tables is made in Staffordshire or New '
roney. Wo may then reasonably h>po to
karo in the prespcrtty and progress of the
fi-cat age in which wo live.
TUE LESSON OF NEW ENGLAND.
Nsw England was dissatisfied with the war j
if 1812-15, because it ruined her cDmuierco.
!hc then threatened to leave the Uuion which 1
he has lately tried so hard aud so successful- 1
y to save; but in losing her commerce she
lirected her attention to manufactures, aud thc
rhole wot ld knows tho result.
Let us leam a lesson from her, and the day
is Dot far distant when a prosperity will reig
amongst us wliich we never knew before. Al
ready is capital beginning to accumulate
in thc South. The present crop will leave a
large balance in thc hands of our people. What
will they do with it ? They do not want to
purchase lands, for they uow own more than
they need. They cannot invest il in slaves as
formerly, and they will hardly keepit hoarded
up. Thc day for that is past. Tho affairs of
the country are settled for soaie time to come,
and surplus means must bo invested in manu?
factures, railroads and other works of the
kind. Thc sooner we begin to do th?w. ihe
sooner shall we see thc prosperity we so ardent?

THE SOUTHERN SliLITIA BILL.
Tho bill providing for cbc formation of looal
militia in tho seven reconstructed States de?
veloped some events of interest in thc debates
in tho Senate on Tuesday. It came out that
the bili is only preliminary-intended to be re?
alized in detail by the other bill now before
the Military Committee, which provides for the
issuing of two thousand stand of arms, of im?
proved Springfield pattern, to each Congres?
sional District in tho reconstructed States,
with two batteries of artillery ; the same to bo
distributed by tho Governors to loyal compa?
nies in those districts. Thus tho full and pow
ful equipment of a standing negro army is to
bo provided fe*. In support of tuts design
Wilson recounted four thousand murders in
Texas since November 4, and stated that
more Union men have been murdered in thc
South since the 1st of January, 18C7, than
were killed at Gettysburg. Ho told of
one disloyal Louisianian who boasted he
had pinked one hundred and twenty Union
men with his own hand ac Opelousaa. To this
narration by the sonitor do description can do
justice. Ho was iu his most God-fearing, lib
eny-loving vein, and delivered the fiction with
a contempt for grammar and pronunciation
which brought tears to the eyes of an open
eared intelligent contraband in the gallery. In
tho discussion of the bill several of the uow
senators from the South made their debut.
Warner, of Alabama, exchanged complim ents
with Garrott Davis on tho virtue of scalawags
and carpet-baggers, and was so sensitive as to
insist that ho hud lived at least eighteen months
m the State, and had a rieht to bc considered
a regular representative. k Mr. Sawyer, of South
Carolina, is said to have made tho best speech
of tho occasion, and iga* respectful, intel?
ligent and direct. In tho couran of his re?
marks, he said that in So.uh Carolina and thc
other Southern States the loyal people were
uoarmod, while tho opposing party hid plenty
of arms, and were not scrupulous in the uso of
them. Tho government of South Carolina was
not, ho said, a government of the m ; iori ty,
hut was sustained by a majority of th J r copie,
including those disfranchised. Tho i clicy of
tho loyal men was so liberal that u i der the
present State Government of South Carolina
every citizen of tho State could hold > .ice. Ho
desired this prohibition to be repealed because
a mdilia was neccspary in thc Southern States,
und also because if their governments wore
real Stato governments, thoy ought to have
tho power lo orgauize aud call out tho militia
REMOVAL OF POLITICAL DISABILITIES.
In the House of Representatives on Wednes?
Mr. Paine, of Wisconsin, from the Commit?

W. L. Elliott, W. A. Daniels, J. A. Woodward,
W. J. Nixon, J. W. Bingham, C. E. Palmor,
and George Lewis, citizens of South Carolina.

relative to these men, signed by the Souih
Mr. Brooks, of New York, sug ;ested that all
the documents had bettor bo printed, so as to
havo them on record. He boped, that as uni?

would Boon be established also.
Slr. Ifturn cs worth, of Illinois, moved to amend
tho bill by inserting therein the namo or tno
Lieutenant Governor of Tennessee. This was
agreed to, and thc bill, as amended, passed.
A Washington letter of Tuesday says :

would be lo restore harmony and fraternal

T. West, of Liberty Hill, and Dr. Thomas H.
Patterson, living eight or nine miles below the
village. Dr. West was tho victim, and he is

fought; and tho result was as wc have stated

forgavo the unfortunate man who bad taken
his lifo. Neither one could remembor what
they had quarrelled ab mt. Dr. West was a
highly respectable and peaceable citizen; Dr.
Patterson no less so. The many friends of those
families aro filled with gi icm at this lamenta?

?5T NEW YOllK JULY 1ST. 1SJS.-DEAR
SIU : In your paper of last week, you or one or your
correspon .cuts say that Dr. Drake is uot thc origin?
ator ol the celebrated PL.tNTAUON BITTERS,
and that they wore manufict tr.-d aud sold by one
Pedro Martelle, au oid Spaniard, in the Islau I of St.
Thi mas, over forty years ago, as every old >ca can
taiu can test'fy. Now, sir, I cm certify to the above
as being true, for I have followod the sea for over
forty years, most of the timo d >ing business with
thc West indies. Thoso same Bictsr.-s differently
put up and named, were broagbt to my notice ou
my first trip to the I<l.u-d ol St. Croix for a cargo r f
rum, and for years and years alter ray ship's stores
were never without them. I always supplied my
family and many o' nay neighbors wita them, and
can truly say a better Bitters aud Tonic is not made
in all tuc world. Yours truly,
CATT. HENRY WENTZ.
