tuc "Vessel Owuers and Captain?' Association
ot Peunsy.vania, New Jersey and Delaware,"
for tho purpose of iormitig auxiliary associa?
tions in otuei par?s of the country. The pro?
tection ol the interests of vessel owners and a
mutual interchange of views upon tho sub?

ihe meeting of this couvention, which brought
to Philadelphia some of tho largest auipownora
of the United States, repiesenting property
valued at many millions of dollars. The Ameri?
can coasting trado is almost exclusively in
American hand-, and is carried upon American
bnilt vessels, thousands of people being inter?
ested in it as owners or sailors. Whilst tho
foreign trade of tho country carried in Ameri?
can vosse s languishes, the coasting trade has
been kept UD mainly through tho exertions
and protecting care of this ''Vessel Owners' As?
sociation." The convention has determined to
appeal to Congress and the Stato Legislatures
to rcmovo various restrictions of which thc
trade complain; and as it represents a large
jand important branch of industry, its appeal

Thc Codification of thc Laws- General
Legislative Business-Fun among the
Representatives - Tuc Third House
A Catechism of the Lobby-Tlie Land
Commissioner's BiU-Thc South Caro,
[FROM our. OWN connESPO>DEjrr.]
COLOMBIA, SATURDAY, Febru arv G.-The de?
bate yesterday and to-day on the bili provid?
ing for the codification of the laws of South
Carolina has been quite interesting.
Thc first question raised was ou the propos?
ed amendment of tho Coninoitteo on tho Judi?
ciary as follows:
That the first section of the bill bo amended
so as to read: "In purauanco of soction three
of article fivo of tho constitution, a commis?
sion, consisting of two persons learned in law,
one to be elected by the Senate and ono by the
House of Representatives, is hereby establish?
ed, whoso duty ? shall be to revise, simplify,
arrange and consolidate, under proper beads,
all the statute laws of thc State, general aud
permanent in their nature, which shall bs of
forcoat the time they make the final report."
Senator Raiucy, of Georgetown, made an
earnest and eloquent spoken on the subject,
exciting i:o small surprise and astouishmcoi.
He said he was desirous of bavins a codo of
laws, but he wanted to have the work perform?
ed in such a manner as would bo creditable
alike to the General Assembly and tho State.
But, unless this was dono, he prefeircd seeing
certain laws abrogated, and then to fall back
on the statutes ot South Carolina, as a whole,
than to have them cut up, mutilated and de?
formed. What he desired was to see men em?
ployed to do this ff OTK who have already
studied the statutes, learned men of mature
experience; not men who wo lld be paid for
simply studying the statutes. They might not
bo able to got such a great jurist as Janies L.
Petiarru, who was himself ? walking text-boo.:,
but ho thought they could net those in tho
State who would not make them feel ashamed
of their choice when the work was presented.
Senator Corbin concurred in the sentirucuts
of Senator Rainey, but said the committee of?
fered the amendment to the bill as a compro?
mise. They were all painfully aware of thc
disagreements between tho Senato and House
at the special session, and this had been drawn
with a view to obviate the difficulty.
In the discussion on Senator Leslie's motio.i I
to strike out four thousand dollars and insert I
thirty-flvo hundred as the yearly salary of t.io
commissioners, Senator Corbin was decidedly
opposed to tho reduction. He took tho ground
that they could not Ret men of ability to do
the work satisfactorily al that price. He an?
nounced that, though it had been so intimat?
ed, he was uot an aspirant for tho position.
But it was an employment that required the
ablest mon they could find, and he was will?
ing, in order lo huve it well dono, to provide
for liberal payment.
Senator Nash tuongut if they would sond
over to Sumter, thoy could got an old gentle?
man there (J. S. G. Richardson) bent down
with rheumatism, it is UUQ. but one who, hko
?Ir. 1'otigru, is a text book himself. He would
guarantee they could got him to do tho work
for $3500, and do it weil, irrespective of poli?
tics. He waa unwilling to give the codifiers
moro than the judges.
The amendment prevailed by a voto of ayes
12, nays 7. Tbe Senate bill, as amended, pro?
vides for only one codifier, at a salai y of $3500
per aunum, with an allowance or $5000 for
printing, stationeiy, &c

Much of thc time of tho House was consum?
ed to-day in the discussion of a bill for tho
appointment of a Boord of Land Commission?
ers, and thc substitute therefor reported hy?
the committee appointed in furtherance of thc
provisions of an ordinance passed by thc late
convention. It is generally conceded that
such a board will be of advantage to tho
people of the State if specially charged with
the purchase of choap arable lands and resale
of them in small farms. Tho only point of
disputo was tho manner of appointing tho so
commissioners and tho compensation they
should receive for their services.
The original bill contemplated thc appoint?
ment of three commissioners, one of whom
was to attend all sales of land in person, and
under the direction of thc other nv o make pur?
chases and resales. He was to receive as
compensation for his services a fee ot ten dol?
lars for every title which Lo issued, whilo the
other t wo commissioners received a per diem
of six dollars whilst tho board was in session.
The substitute differed from thc original bill
only in the compensation of thc travelling
commissioners, which was fixed at $2300. No
conclusion was reached, lt is understood that
DeLargo is thc astiring candidate for thc po?
sition of chief commissioner.

"JFJIAT ROYALTY COSTS."
TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWh.
Tho Royal family and Queen aro no expense
to Groat Britain. George the Third inherited,
as Tom, Dick or Harry might havo done, cer?
tain lauds. These ?stales were vested in the
Crown Land Commissioners, in consideration
of Parliament providing thc necessary supply
for thc Crown and Royal family. lu lSu'7, thc
proceeds received by tho Commissioners ex?
ceeded tho amouuls paid to thc Queen and
Royal family by the pretty liltlo sum of ?70,000.
So tho Queen lost in that year $330,000 by her
grandfather's arrangeaient, and the country
mads that profit on thc transaction. Thus
tho Crown oi England costs $3S0 000 a year
less than nothing, or about half a million less
thin Genctal Gratis will ?cost when he gets
$100,030 a year. JOHN BULL.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.
Ia the debate upon Mr. Corbin's bill to make
valid the invalid and illegal city election, the

proclaimed not only that it is and must be a
PARTY question, but they also announce the

Tile Spartanburg and Asheville Kail
Wc tako the following letter upou the sub?
ject of tho Spartanburg and ?Ashev?lo Railroad
from tho columns of the Columbia Pheonix :
MR..EDITOR- I uo iced in yesterday's Pucc
nlx a short communication, signed "Colum?
bia," writteu in the interest of a i>ill now be
f.iro tho Legislature, to furnish aid in extend?
ing Ibo Spartanburg and Union Railroad to
ASJI villi'. North Carunna. The proposhion
made hy thu friends of this road is certainly
most reasonable and generous, and siiuuld
ci.inman i tho serious consideration of Uta Gen
i-ral A-smbly. ?'hi.s company proposes tu
"oho.v their faith by thor worus. inasmuch
as they do not ask thc Slate IO lend tts cr. dit
to their IO.UI uuiil they malic a substantial
demonstration o: nood fa tu a'nd earuosly, by
first securing individual subscriptions to the
amount i f Slu?.uu? as it capitol with which to
commence operations. Tho Spartanburg and
Union Railroad Company do nut desire to
bru g the extension ol their road into compe?
tition with any other road in the Slate, but
only ask the General As ?milly to consider it
upon its own morita. Arhovile, Nortu Caro?
lina, disiant only seventy-four mites from spar?
tanburg Comthouse, tho pr sent terminus of
i he Spartanburg and Uniou Railroad, will moat
coitaiiily bj reached by railroad communica?
tion from tho- Wo?t om'tho ir euch Broad Val?
ley, in two years, if not in less time; wiiieh
will bli g tho products of Tenno.-soo, Ken?
tucky and Ohio to a point almost at our doors.
From the certainly of the early completion
ol' the enliro chain of roads west of Asbevillo,
ibu Siatu of North Carolina, we arc assured,
has recently appropriated fabulous sums ot
money in order to reach th:i: point with her
I roads from ibo cast, and will thus perfect au
j mt broken chain ot railroads fro :i her soa-bonrd
to tho rich and fertile valleys ol tho great West.(
I Lot not the Logisluturo overlook tho import
ant fact that Charleston is, br many miles,
nearer to Asheville than is any harbor on the
coast of North Carolina, and that by Riving
tho Spartanburer and Union Railroad Company
the aid they ask, and enabling them to extend
their road to its natural terminus, the billions
of produce, naturally seeking the nearest and
cheapest outlet, would be -hipped via Spartan
burg, and Columbia t o C -teston.
It is now thought that the Wilmington and
Rutherford Rai.road, for the completion of
whick the State of North Carolina has sub?
scribed $4 000,00 ). will pass the Blue Ridge ab
Butt Mountain Gap-the point at which the
Spa r tanburg and Union Railroad Company con?
template crossing also. Should this bo true,
it ni ght be agreeablo on the part of the two
com sanies, or tho States by which they are
respectively fostered and encouraged, to unite
their strength, and thus, at a much earlier
day effect the desired connection. Assuming,
however, that the Sportanburg and Union
Company will receive no outside assistanco, it
is but fair to presumo that if the General As?
sembly grants the assistance asked for in the
bill the work will be speedily accomplished.
There is only a distance of eleven and one
fourth miles of the entire survey from Spar
tanburir to Asheville that san be called moun?
tainous, and the most competent engineors
have estimated that tbe maximum grade on
this division will not exceed sixty-three feet
per mile. The work on all other parts of the
road will bo comparatively light, running the
entire distance through a country that fur?
nishes, at hand, all tho wood, stone. Sic., re?
quired to construct tho road. When wo re?
member that this road passes through a coun?
try possessing boundless, though as yet unde?
veloped, mineral resources; that its comple?
tion will givo us unbroken communication
with tho "hoe and hominy" region of the
world-the Eden of America; that it will givo
a now impetus to all our industrial enterprises
and prosperity to all our people; that it will
enrich the State and make Charleston, indeed
and in truth, tho quevn city of the South, we
cannot doubt that tho General Assembly will
grant the aid that this company ask in the
AFFAIRS IN TUE STATE.
Tho Enquirer says : The fine wcathor of the
last two or three weeks has enabled our farm?
ers to start their farming operations at a much
earlier period than usual. A great deal of
ground has been broken up already, and un?
less wc have a very bad spell of weather, tho
crops of 1869 will be startoJ under very favor?
able auspices. There is every prospect of on
early spring, and our people eoom to be doing
all in their powor to take advantage of it.
There is, however, a lack of field-hands, nearly
every man who carnes on anything like an
extensivo farm hoing ready to employ one or
Tho following is tho result of the canvass of
children in York County : Tho number of chil?
dren between the ages specified is five thou?
sand niuo hundred and one, of whom three
thousand and eighty-six are miles and two
thousand eight Hundred and fifteen aro fe?
males. As to race, they aro : Whites, three
thousand two hundred and seventy-three; In?
dians, 27; colored, two thousand six hundred
endono. These childi en belong to two thou?
sand two hundred and eighty-seven families,
nine of whom havo, each, seven children over
five and under eighteen yo rs old. there being
forty-two boys and twenty-one girls in those
nine families. The most prolific portion of
tho county is on Clark's Fork, in the neighbor?
hood of Allison's Store and Hickory Grove, as
tho largest number of children iu tho samo
numtor of families is found there. Tho col?
ored clement ii most numerous in thoso sec?
tions suited to the cultivation of cotton, while
in thc northwestern portion of the cou.ity,
thoy aro outnumbered by the whites in the
proportion of fifty to one.
Within thc last (wo weeks. Barnwell District
has been deprived by (loath of two of her most
excellent citizons-Major W. "R. Barker and
Major A. J. Nix.
Of Bale-day m Barnwell, the Sentinel says :
Considerable property was sold by the abend'
on Monday last at fair prices, and a largo crowd
were in attendance. Oakman wad on hand
with a fine lot of mulcs.-and many were dispos?
ed of. It takes money to buy them, and they
command enormous pricos in this section.
Tho Southerner says there was a great gath?
ering in Darlington village on Saturday, and
adds : A goodly amount of property of all
kinds changed hands, and from tho spirited
bidding aud dosiro to invest, we would sup?
pose that a largo quantity of "stamps" had
lound its way herc.
Tho same paper says : Monday last was re?
turn day, and in spite of all the hopes to the
contrary, a largo amount of business found its
wi?y into thc bunds of our lawyers, and from
thonco to tho "mill," to bo ground into "home?
steads," which all invariably claim whon posh?
ed by their creditors. Wo thiuk suoiug, now,
for large amounts, au up-hill business, besides
the danger of paying costs.
