WASHINGTON, February 9.-IN THE HOUSE,
Kerr spoke in opposition to tho postal railroad
to New York. He said tho system would soon
extend to telegraph, insurance and canals, cre?
ating a nec?ssity for new bureaus and depart?
ments; with them would come a fearful multi?
plication of offices anti dorks, increasing the
swarms of corrupt and infamous men, filling the
land with thieves, beggars, swindlers, villanous
contractors, operators and speculators; ? such
characters would command, if thoy did not
fill seats, iu tho House of Representatives.
This bill was only tho pioneer with which to
break down the constitutional barriers and
inaugurate a now policy. An amendment for?
bidding tho road to connect with other roads
now built was passed. An amendment extend?

COLOMBIA, S. C., February 8.-Ou Mondays
neither brauch of tho General Assembly usual?
ly has a very full or punctual attendance of
members. The result is that tho proceedings
on that day are not often of the Buncombe
order, and those who work moro and talk jess
have better opportunities of doing aoinothing
to complete the legislation necessary at tho
present session. To-day, however, -the condi?
tion of affairs in the House was somewhat re?
versed. Tbe members were promptly in their
seats, and almost the entire day was spent in
thc discussion of tho bill to establish a board
of land commissioners. There is considerable
diversity of opinion iu referent*- to the persons
to bo selected to carry ont the object propos?
ed. Some aro in favor of leaving the purchase
of lantli to the County Commissioners, others
to a simpic board to bo composed of thc Com?
missioner of Agricultural Statistics and two
other*, to bo elected by thc General Assembly.
Tho following is thc substitato offered by
Purvis, and whi<;h led to a lengthy discussion,
participated in by Whipper, Feriter, Bosemon,

Another attempt was mido in thc Hu use to

any, is necessary in reference thereto.
Purvis, from the Committee on Agricul?

THE SCHOOL CENSUS.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEW3.
As your paper is very exleh/ ively read by a
class ol'persons io this county w iio aro so much
prejudiced against the existing institutions in
this State as to refuse to rcgh ter their names
and tho number .of their children, I deem it
expedient to state through your columus that
section five of act tea of tho constitution, and
third clause of tho proviso, declares tbat "the
school tax shall be distributed among the sev?
eral school districts of the State in proportion
to the rcspecUve number of pupils attending
the public schools." By the act of September
15,1868, tho number of children, as well as the
number of childron attending schock, is re?
quired io be reported as the basia lor tho divis?
ion of tbe school tax of 18C8. This tax is
about to bo collected, and will be available for
scholastic purposes in tho sum of $150 OOO on
or bi'Jorc. thc Hrst day of November of the cur?
rent year, at which lime, probably, thc schools
mil opee. Probably, sep?ralo tehoois will bc
established for colored and white children
where their respective numbers will warrant
it, and probably, tco, tho school money given
to et"'h county will bo expended fr the iin
proicmeht of both colored and white ehiidrcu
m proportion to tho respective numbers of
each. As the ojp.c ai registration will bo tho
criterion cl'tuch ?X'.c;iditure, a?l will at .once
see tho impolicy cl iii sc who, under ibo cir?
cumstances and regardless of tho scholastic
wcitr.ro of tho chihlren of their jwer white
neighbors, refuse to register.

THE SOUTH CJLROLINA lt. It. CO.
Meeting of the Stockholders.
The annual meeting of the stockholders ot
the South Carolina Railroad Company was
held yesterday in the hall of the Southwest?
ern Railroad Bauk.
The meeting was called to ord?r hy W. J.
Magrath, Esq., the President of the Company,
who moved that tho Hon. Wilmot G. DeSaus
8uro take the chair. This motion was carried,
and Hr. DeSaussure declared the meeting
ready for business.
Tue minutes of tho annual meeting of 18G8
were road hy tho Secretary.
Major Gavin wanted to know what had be?
come of the report of the names and salaries of
the employees of the company, ordered to bo
famished the stockholders Iby the directors.
Ho said there were Borne barnacles on the road
that ought to be swept away. He did not see
why the stockholders should not soo who got
thia money, and what it was got for. This
very inquiry had been choked off before, and
he did not want to see it stifled again.
Mr. Cochran read the following report of the
Southwestern Railroad Bank :
To the Stockholders of thc South Carolina
Railroad Company :
No change bas taken place in the affairs of
tho bank since your hst meeting.
The various suits thou reported have not
progressed sufficiently to enabb me to report
Thc expenses of the bank* have ..cn re?
duced as low as practicable.
Having for nearly thirty years enjoyed the
confidence of this great company, whilst de?
clining re-election, I cunio: take leave without
expressing my grateful recollections of thoir
uniform confidence and unabated kindness,
and my recording my firm belief in tho abiding
power of our railroad to assist materially thc
fortunes of our city and Stato.
JAMES riosr., President.
Mr. Cochran said that Mr. Rose positively
The reports of tho President and Superin?
tendent of the railroad were then read by tho
Secretary, and on motion, referred to thc fol?
lowing committee with instruclions to report
as early as possible: Messrs. Jamesy. Wols
mon, A. 0. Andrews, J. H. Honour, Gabriel
Cannon and James McRae.
The President informed thc meeting that tho
report of tho names, wages and occupations of
all persons employed by the company, called
for at tho last meeting, was upon the table for
the tufonnation of the stockholders.
Major Gavin wanted to know why that report
had not been printed. He should liko to know
whero tho money went and what thc barnacles
were. He could not learn anything by looking
at thc report. He wanted lo havo it at home
and study it over.
Major Gavin then offered a resolution to thc
effect that tho report of tho President contain?
ing the names and salaries of all officers and
agents of the company bo immediately pub?
lished, and that hereafter that portion of tho
report be appended each year to the regular
Alonzo J. White, Esq., opposed Major Gav?
in's motion to print the report, on account of
the inexpediency of publishing to the world
tho minor details of the expenses of the com?
pany. If tho stockholders wished to guard
against useless expenditure, they should
chc08e proper directors. Ho thought they had
a good board now. If not, they should be
changed. U the mover of tho resolution want?
ed any of the information which tho resolution
seemed designed to scok, it was on the table
and any stockholder could read it for himself,
or if desired the Secretary could road it for tho
benefit of the meeting.
Major Gavin replied that ho could see no
harm in the publication. Unless thcro was,
something wrong there would be no opposition
to the public tion. A mau who had been dis?
missed from thc employ of the road came to
him for a ce .tilicatc t at he had not fur?
nished him with the iufon.c"' n which ho
had used at the last meeting of stockhold?
ers. He could not got back on tho road with?
out such a certificate. That satisfied him that
the officers of tho road wcro in league for dis?
honest purposes, and ho wanted the thing
Colonel Richard Yeadon opposed thc resolu?
tion on tho ground that no good was to be ac?
complished by it, and ho moved to lay tho res?
olution on thc table, but withdrew it to allow
Major Gavin to speak.
Major Gavin repeated his former arguments,
and said that tho report on tho table was no
use to him; ho wanted it at homo to study.
Hon. Gabriel Caauon, of Spartanburg, op?
posed thc ^solution, and Colonel Yeadon re?
newed his motion to lay on tho table, which
was carried almost uuanimously.
James G. Holmes. Esq., offered tl o following
resolution, which was adopted :
Rcs J( oed, That it bo referred lo the commit?
tee to which tho report of thc President aud
Directors ot tho Soul? Carolina ttailroad Com?
pany has been referred, to exaiuiuo and consi?
der "the expediency of reporting a plan tor the
arrangement of tho debt s> as to insure its
payment ut a erven tune by a semi-annual ap?
propriation of a u infirm sum, applicable to
tbs payment of both principal and interest.
lu supporting the resolution, ht said that
from tho report ot the directors of the railroad
it appeared that they had not ouly paid the in?
terest of seven per cent, on the actual indebt?
edness of tho company, but they had also made
a reduction of the debt itself. Tho same re?
ceipts that accomplished this end could bo
made to pay a small dividend and also a suffi?
cient interest on tho debt to extinguish it in
thirty years. He had agitated a sch erne for
this purpose in 1S57, and if it had been adopt?
ed theo the debt now woutd have boon much
Hon. Geo. A. Trenholm did not object to thc
resolution, but suggc?tcd for thc* information
of thc stockholders that tho plan proposed
had olteu been tried iu Eiropc, and though
g od in theory had never boen lound practi?
Mr. Holmes replied that he had often beeti
opposed by Mr. Trenholm 0:1 this same sub?
ject before, hut r.lthongb ho said thc scheme
was impracticable, ho had applied it to tho
de'bt uf thc C ty ol' Chirk-aton before tho nar,
amounting to $1090 000, and that Mr. Mem
mingcr had applied is to a Confederate debt of
$103,G03,COO. Tho City Council had interfered
unnecessarily wi:h the scheme, and the Con?
fed?ralo Government had been compelled to
abandon it, but in both casc?, as loug as ad?
hered to, it was both practical and successful.
Mr. Magrath suggested tlu!, Mr. Charles M.
Furrnan had booti in Europe for seven months
to arrange the debt cf thc company, and the
report stated t?at a plan for that purpose had
been decided upon.
Mr. Holmes replied that the two plans need

Mr. Boston Clarkson moved that a coinmit
f ee of three be appointed to whom should be
referred the report of the President and Diroc
tore of the South western Railroad Bank, which
was agreed to.
Mr. Holmes called attention to the fact that
the only thing in the report which required
action was the expression of an intention on
the part of the President, James Ro3e, Esq.,
to resign, and that a proper expression of tho
feelings of the stockholders on this occasion
should be made.

ALEXANDER H. STEPHENS.
His Relations with Jefferson Davis-Tl e
Denies Pollard's Story-His Opinion 01"
tlie President Elect-What he thinks
of thc Future of thc Country.
A correspondent of the Macon Telegraph
writes as follows of a roconfc interview with the
Hon. A. H. Stophcus:
When I entered he was engaged in looking
over the papers which had arrived by mail a
few minutes before, but kindly entered into a
very pleasing conversation with me without
delay. I ventured to call his attention to a
paper which contained the article of Mr. Pol?
lard on the flight ol Mr. Davis from Richmond,
aud particularly that portion relating to him?
self, with an urgent request Ihat he might al?
low mo to publish his remarks m reference to
it. He stated that he had seen tho article,
and would cram my request only on condition
tba], I would givo his remarks in his own
words. I then took down in short bond as he
spoko, the following:
"I havo a great repugnance to having my
name brought beloro tho public in such a con?
nection, even in correction of the many mis?
representations which I almost daily see in
the papers ; yet 1 assure you that what Mr.
Pollard in this article says, is without the least
foundation whatovor, and his information, from
whatever source derived, is entirely incorrect.
I was here, at my own heme in Crawfordvitlc,
at tho timo referred to. Mr. Davis did not
pass nearer to Crawfordvillc than Raytown,
some eight or nine miles distant, and I did not
know that he was passing through that part of
the Stato until some time afterwards. 'Gris
woldvillo.' spoken of in tuc article of Mr. Pol?
lard, is at least eixty or seventy miles from my
residence. However widely Mr. L ans and ?
may have diffeicd upon public questions and
public policy, either before or during the days
of the Confederacy, our personal and social
relations ?ere never iuteixuptel. Our terms
of intercourse were always friendly. No act
of incivility on the part of either of us was
ever exhibited towards the other, so far as I
am anare of. In this connection I would add
that it is not correct, as I herc seo it in tho
papers to-day stated, that I have accepted the
Professorship of History and Politicul Science,
lately created and tendered to mo in tho Uni?
versity of Georgia. The state of my health
and existing professional, as well as other en?
gagements, constrain me to decline it, at least
for thc present.''
I asked Mr. Stephens what he thought
would bo the course of General Grant as Presi?
dent; and whilo ho says but little upon public
matters, bia reply was as follows: "All tho
country wauts is good government. For Gene?
ral Grant personally I entertain the highest
esteem. From tho first time I first met bim at
City Point in 18G5, I have regarded, aud still
regard bim aa one of the most remarkable mon
I have over met. He possesses ono of tho rarest
combinations of elements of character of per?
haps any man living. I do not believe ho will
be easily influenced, much less controlled by
any person. He will act from tho dietatcs ot
his own judgment, and what he behaves to lie
tho line of ins duty. I reeardlnm aa a man of
great gen rosily and magnanimity-neither
selfish nor ambitious; and I believe ho meant
all that tho words import when he said 'Let
us havo Peace.' General Grant, however, no
moro than any other man, can have all things
as he might desire. The future of this coun?
try, there.ore, is still enveloped ia great un?
certainty. All the patriot at the South can do
is to bear in patience thc present, exercise a
gencruus confidence, and look hopolully for
Tinio'a development." Of
ho Baid, -''With good government, there is
much of 'life in tho old land yet.'" Hebere
referred to a paper recently furnished from the
Agricultural Bureau at Washington, which
gives the products and the great staples of the
country, Indian corn and cotton, during tho
year 1808, aud proc eded: "From this it ap?
pears that in all of tho States east ot' tho Paci?
fic slope, tho entire product of eira was nine
hundred millions bushels. 0:' this, more than
unc-hulf, to wit: five hundred and nine mil?
lions in round numbers, was producod in thc
thirteen Southern States; while the cotton
crop, estimated at two million three hundred
thousand bales, grown entirely in these States,
at an average market price, vould amount to
upwards of two hundred aud fitty millions of
dollars, which will bo moro than one-half the
loreign exports from tho en tiro country, lheso

[From tte London Review.]
The wonderful trials of temper imposed by
matrimony can soiree ever be known to an out?
sider. The provocative power of a woman,
which i9 naturally considerable, become many
degrees intensified by marriage. First of all,
the intimacy of tbat mode of lifo renders her
thoroughly acquainted with all the weak
points of ber lord. She knows exactly where
to hurt him most severely, and where to touch
a raw placo hidden from the rest of the
world. There is no doubt that when Xantippe
pitched crockery at the sconce of ber
husbaod, s ?A accompanied the missiles
with jeers at tho poor man's doctrine.
Milton, it is said, suffered horribly from
the tongue of his btipniato, and wo can
imagine her, not only hiding bis pen and ink,
but making fun of his verses. But these are
historical cases, where the battles wero of
chronic occurrence. In real lifo, people whon
married lo not altogether bark and bite. There
are intervals of repose when tho atmosphere is
clear and the sun shines ; or, as it may happen,
the storms are exceptional and che squalls com?
paratively rare. Off-handoncountorsfrequently
tend to postpone moro serious conclusions, and
the licite domestic skirmishes common to the
matrimonial state act as safety-valves of energy,
which might, under strict confinement, burst
into a disastrous explosion. There are numbers
of womeu who would be quit J uncomfortable if
they had not small quarrels with their hus?
bands. Tho smooth and even tenor of every?
day existence is broken up into a picturesque
variety by these passages. Husbands (espe?
cially when new to their happiness) are often
puzzled to know what makes tho angel cross,
and, to use an expressive term, cantankerous.
They ask the cause, but they aro fenced off un?
til a chance occuis for treading on their corns,
and then the shindy commences in real earn?
est. A lady of this dehghtful complexion is
completely happy if she can wind up with a
good cry. The dear creature dissolves into
tears, and the man feds himself at onco a
brute. Thisls her revenge. There is nothing
uow for the husband but absolute submission
and a full acknowledgment of his being in tho
wrong. A woman lins lost her ground forever
who fads in her object when sha has recourse
to ber pocket-handkerchief, and to a display of
swollen eyes and a red nose. Few, however,
aro s: unid enough to play this card until their
adversary beoomes disgusted with the trick; it
is generally kept back until the right time, and
then used with a vengeance.
The fascinating hypocrisy of tho sox ie
shown in nothing with such graco as in the
periods which immediately ensue after a tiff.
To the visitor or tho casual diner there is no
indication whatever ot the disturbance. If a
symptom is shown at all it is by tho husband,
who has not tho same faculty as bis wife ot
smoothing his feathers when ruffled. Of comae
this is only in good society. Among other
classes it is not so simple a thing to dispose of
the visible tokens of a matrimonial sparring
match. There are such things as black eyes
and scratched faces. Yet it may happen that
those of a higher spheie suffer just as bad
punishment as the less polished combatants.
Inward bleeding is moro dangerous than an
open wound. It is a fact that all tiffs
contain the possibilities of offences which
can never bo forgivon. A wild, vicious word
mav stick and rankle in a woman's heart
forever. Sucha word was applied, for instance,
by Mr. Johnathan Wild to the lady who visited
him in trouble; and it is bolievod she hung
him for it. A man who studies the disposition
ot his wtfo for the sake of his own poaco must
be cautious to mark the foibles of temper, for
the best of wives havo certain weaknesses in
this icspect, which it would be unfair and
rather uncomfortable to ignoro. It they would
only discover them to us bofore marriage I
But that is not tho custom. Such frankness
wou'd bo almost fatal to the institution which
binds communities together. Bcsidos, after
all, women with tempers are mush more tole?
rable than womon without. They possess
both action and spirit, while the tame, equable
colorless creature has neither. A landscape
seen "lu porpctiial Brjasrilno or moouebina
would be dull; it is a relief to seo it from time
to time stirred by the wind or in the light of
a flushed and angry sunset. Is this tho rea?
son why poets so often marry shrews ? It is
probable th it a lady who becomes conscious
that her husband is analyzing her would, out
of sheer spite, give him something to specu?
late upon of a hard aud practical description;
she would cross his romantic vision on a broom?
stick, or, worse again, flit over his bram with a
poker. Albert Durer was, it is thought, bless?
ed in this fashion. Vulgar men are not ex?
empt fi om similar b?n?dictions in disguise.
Yet they conceal their favors heroically. Tho
divorce court lets us into the many "acctC?E;
but there oro thousands of profounder secrets
unknown to that useful establishment. Tiffs
are not sufficient causes for separation, al?
though they may lead to tho most plenary rea?
sons for parting.
Wo should think that in most instances when
they do, thc fault is with tho husband. Mar?
riage is a science, or, rather, a line art. Thero
is scarcely any woman who could not bo re?
duced, by a good system and discipline, to an
unendurable line of ooudnoL Whether every
woman would be worth the trouble of such a
traiuing is quito another question; but, un?
doubtedly, to thc man who is married, there is
no more important task to take in hand. It
requires judgment, coolness and just a httle
clever cruelty. Thc slightest sign of weak?
ness (and bullying, mind, is a vulgar admission
of incapacity) will spoil thc ontiro operation.
RoughuOBS of any kind is, indeed, most unde?
sirable, and is only thc weapon of clumsy re?
formers. Mild irony and satire, with the chill
off. is much more effectual. Pctruchio laid
down an excellent programmo for Raryizing
Kate, where ho said :
"I will attend her hero
And woo her with some spirit when rho comes.
Say that she rail ; why then IM tell ber plain
she flugs us sweetly as a nightingale.
Say that she frown ; I'll say .-.be looks as clear
AB morning roses newly wash-.-d with dow.
Say she wi il bo mut" and will not speak a word.
Iben I'll commend lipr volu lility,
Aud say she utter? piercing eloquence."
Pctruchio was a genuino woman-tamer, who
used his art not unkindly. Of course, thero are
incorrigibles, whose husbands havo no alter?
native but a study of tho Book of Job, and a
strong faith m componsative immortality. With
them theic is no rest. When we read in tho
papers of brutal violenco towards wives, we are
often too scntimo ital in cendemning tho hus?
band. Wc may not take into uccount tho un?
bearable provocation to which he is often sub?
jected. A'story is told of an actor who had to
repoat Tobin's celebrated claptrap, "Tho man
who lays his hand upon a woman, savo",&c. It
occurred to him at the moment that, he bad
whacKcd his wife about half an hour previous?
ly, in the presence of tho green-room, and so,
in order not to appear inconsistent, he altered
the text thus : "Thcman who lays his hand
upon a woman, save wuen she d?terres it," &c.
\'.o should bo sorry to allow this freedom with
so noble a modern toast, hut, unquestionably,
there aro times whon its literal interpretation
must seem unjust to laborers whose wives
pawn thc children's clothes and waste the
ironer ia drink.
Into this braDCb of tho subject, however, it
is not our ineution to enter. Disputes be?
tween man and wife, in which the aaioothing
iion and tho dishes arc employed as arguments,
aro beyond the cooler region of tiffs. It is
wi-11 when the tiff only resembl s a lover's
quarrel, and is es'ahlished, perhaps, by tho
lady, fo;1 the express purpose ol' a delightful
iiiaki.'.g-up. Un such occasions a good hus?
band i.-i expected to show bia appreciation ot
Ino luxurious misery ho has gone through by a
box at ti'? opera or a ::ew dress. Ho not only
rlances, bot very properly pat? ibo piper, and
bo has ibo consolation of reflecting that any

There ls a patience exceeding that of woman, a
courage greater than that of the warrior, a fortitude
as unwavering as was ever told in story. Suca
patience, such courage and such fordtuds were the
crowning qualities of him of whom these words are
Generous in disposition, amiable in temper, an
