for tho credibility of a gentleman who says, in
its columns, that when Judge Campbell, of
South Carolina, was in Washington attempting
to arrange terms for tho senar.Uion of his
State from the Union, President Lincoln pre?
pared a proclamation giving his assent. The
?riter says that shortly after tho breaking off
.of the effort to avert tho dire cafastrophe of
vrar, a gentleman having freo access to tho
private office at President Lincoln repaired to
the capital of South Carolina and deposited
with a high official of that Stale a manuscript
proclamation of President Lincoln, duly pre?
pared and ready for his signature, announcing
to the American people that, rather than
plunge the country into a civil war, the Exec?
utive Government of the United States ac?
quiesced in the dismemberment of the Union.

-It becomes quite a question how far
employment of colored troops in the ai
"pays," as a matter of economy. The i
geon-Genoral's report shows that for the
year, among white soldiers, the proportio
deaths to cases treated was as 1 to 97; am
tho colored soldiers, as 1 to 55; and tho
proportion of sick to well was quito as marl
Two year* ago the ratio of deaths ann
white troops to ihat of cases treated was a
to 52; while among colored troops it was a
to 29. General Fry once showed that of
180,000 colored troops in service during
war, 26,211 died or disease-a rate of 1 to 7,
elusive of deaths from wounds. On the ot
hand, of the 2,500,000 white troops, only li
120 died of disease-a rate of about 1 to
Thus the power of resisting disease in
colored soldier was only one-half that ol'
white. Now, comparing theso with the figu
for 1866 and 18G8, we shall see just about
same ratio preserved. These estimates
elude both ordinary and extraordinary servi
in peace and in war. The very important pi
Bical and medical fact is thus demonstra
that colored men cannot so well endure
fatigues and exposures of military service

"When THE NEWS, fifteen months aj
passed into the hands of its present pi
prietor9, we determined to make it, if mon
and work could do so, the cheapest and b<
newspaper ever published in South Car
lina. To accomplish this result we ha
labored with unflagging energy and zei
and in the steady increase of our advert?
ing and subscription we discern a marki
evidence that the public appreciate our c:
t?rprise and mean to give,it their suppoi
We begin the New Year with a larger total ci
dilation than that of any other paper in tl
Southeastern States, with about double tl
circulation in Charleston of any other new;
paper; and with an advertising businei
second to none. These facts, while thc
encourage us to renewed efforts to mak
THE NEWS still more attractive in the fi
ture, will enable us to largely extend th
sphere of its usefulness as a live, go-ahen
and independent Southern newspaper.
ThisJs our business position. One wor
now as to our general policy.
We believe that the time is past, if ther
ever was such a time, when either men o
newspapers might live by politics alon?
TUE NEWS in the past has eschewed ?seles
political disquisitions, and will never be
in the future, a political or party journal
Bouud to the fortunes of no tf?P.o
wran?, nw rt ".?t cu? ana'ckles woin b;
cringing suitors for public or private "pat
"ronage," owing blind allegiance to no class
bul rt^ognizing honesty and merit wherevei
we nnd them, we shall strive to make thii
newspaper the bold and outspoken chum
pion of the rights and interests of tut
whole people of South Carolina.
During the coming y ear TUE NEWS will givt
especial attention to all subjects connected
with the commercial, manufacturing and
agricultural interests of the Slate. The
mill-ow.icr and operative will find in itt
columns thc information they need as tc
the manufacturing and mechanical position
of thc State, the condition of our mills and
factories, and their profits and system ol
management, as well as timely hints con?
cerning the best sites for the establishment
of new industrial enterprises.
The farmer ar.d planter will find iu TUE
NEWS all the new processes which moy bc
dircovered-from tim*,' to time, in relation
tn general farming, thc order t f crops, the
introductiou of new varieties of seed, and
the most advantageous use of fertilizers.
And while this attention is paid to agri?
culture and mauufdc?ure?, wo pledge cur
selves that TUE NEWS shall be excelled by
no journal in the South in the promptitude
and accuracy of ils commercial and financial
reports, in the fullness of its telegraphic
intelligence, and in thc variety and fresh?
ness of its general news department.
In the family circle T1 E NEWS ?hould be
always welcome; for in addition to thc reg?
ular and entertaining le'.lcis of our fashion
correspondents and thc piquant character
of our miscellaneous readicg, we would say
that it is our steadfast purpose to continue
to exclude carefully from our columns
every phrase which might bo objectionable
to any sister or wife in our community.
Withal we do not undertake to reproduce
a New York daily in Charleston. We shall
preseni to our readers in compact and con?
venient form the latest anJ most interesting
intelligence from all quarters of tho globe;
but THE NEWS will be pre-eminently aloca!
newspaper. Not local in the sense of labor?
ing for the exclusive advancement of any
city or county; but local in that it will rep?
resent the State-the whole State-and
direct its chiefest solicitude to the diffusion
of State news, to obtaining and publishing
all information which bears upon li:e pros?
pects of curr people, and to thc untiring ad?
vocacy of every measure which will im?
prove the condition and develops the bound
I less wealth of South Carolina. To build
I up our State is the great object of our lives.
We believe that wc havo already doue some
good in instilling a cheery spirit into the
hearts of the people, and we are content to
find our own reward-be it early or late
in the co-ordinate and enduring prosperity
v.hich must follow TUE NEWS as the apostle
of the creed of progress, and the one news?
paper which never lost faith in the future
of the people and the State.
Thc Peace ot the State.
South Carolina, the so-called "cradle of
"the rebellion," is, on this Now Year's day,
18G9, the most peaceful and secure of all
the Southern States. We hare a colored
population of four hundred thousaud and a
white population of two hundred and
seventy-five thousand or less; but order
and quiet reign within our borders, and no
such thing as widespread riot or tumult
has been known in this State. It is not that
we have been free from the exciting causes
of trouble and disaffection. Political fire?
brands and itinerant thieves have been as
plenteous here as in any other part of the
South; lut white men end colored men labor
soberly side by side, and the business of
the whole State is in a healthy and thriving
The reasons of this are not difficult to be
understood. In this State brute violence
and rowdyism have always met with public
reprobation. Street fighting and bruising
have ever been condemned, and the beha?
vior of the people has always been marked
by reserve an<J self respect. These quali?
ties stood them in good stead when the war
was over. They were not willing to mouth
or rant because .they had been defeated,
nor were they desirous of wreaking puny
vengeance upon those to whom they had
given a life time of benevolence and care.
The honor which sade them just in their
dealings with one another made them just
in their dealings nita the freedman, and
these latter soon became conscious-and
the feeling grows each day in strength
that no South Carolinian would endeavor
to defraud or oppress them. The fair deal?
ing between the white race and the colored
race made bad blood well-nigh impossible,
aud thc freedmen, if they were not disposed
to trust their old masters without reserve,
were, at least, prevented from cherish?
ing bitter and angry thoughts. And the
calmness and conservatism which this pro?
duced was increased in force by the pres?
ence of a number of intelligent and trust?
worthy Northern men, who settled in the
midst of us and made this State their home.
Bat jt would be unjust at this joint to
fail to speak of thc generally discreet, and
orderly behavior of the colored people of
the Stale. They have not been without
fault, nor have they been wholly free from
Warne. More th.au once, and in moro than
one place, they have shown au astonishing
capacity for idleness, unthrift and violence
of speech and act. But taking them all in
all,-making allowances for their changed
condition, the oliaractcr of their compan?
ions, and thc use that has attempted to be
made of them-we ?lo not fear to assert that
thc freedmen of this State have been, on
tbe whule, well-behaved, and that, in their
general conduct nud increasing willingness
to work diligently and well, they have
shown a bright example to the freedmen of
The circumstances which wc have rpiled
account, to our mind, for the difference bo
tween tbis Slate nod thc other Slates of thc
South. We have no bloody riots; no am?
buscade*; no threatening of a war of races;
no long lists of white men killed by negroes,
as in Georgia; no deep seated disaffection
and distrust, as in Alabama; no contend?
ing Legislatures and rival Governors, as. in
Florida; no apprehension of a conflict in
thc streets of thc capital und a certainty of a
collision between ho> I ile purtios in tho coun?
try districts, as in Louisiana; no murder?
ing, plundering "loyal militia," as in Ar?
kansas; no long rolls of assassination and
lynching, as in Texas; no euch timidity
and uncertainty as may be found in any
other of the len Southern SlrjlfS We say this
iu no spirit of exultation We grieve that
there should be riot or mob law in any
part of this Southern land. But we do re?
joice that on this, the New Year's L)ay, v. e
have, iu South Carolina, LAW, and ORDKK,
and PEACE, and that we have, on every side,
thc omens of a bright and happy future.
THE IMPRESSION prevails veiy generally
that the last day for filing p?titions for
bankruptcy, without subjecting thc appli?
cant to the operation of the fifty per cent
clause, was yesterday, ihc cl ?sing day of
thc year. This ?3 an error. This day, tbe
first of January, IS?9, is the limit fixed by
the Act of Congress, approved July 27,
