cies or removals; that th? Tenure-of-offico law
is only operativo durin? a recess o? Congress,
when the President cannot remove but may I
suspend an officer, aud the letter can ouly be
done for cause. But it is the opinion ot Cabi?
net officers and sound lawyers generally that
the President may in effect remove officers
during a session of Congress by sending thc
nominations of a successor to thc Souate and
the latter*confirming the same. This beincr

which occurred in the Senate on Tuesday, just
after the adjournment of Congress. Mr. 'Sum?

height of fashion, accompanied by twe females
of the samo "race and color," gorgeous in feath?
ers and silks, approached, and, touching Mr.
8umneronthe snouldei, claimed acquaintance,
and immediately presented his female friends
to the grtat c'lprnpion of t'aeir race. The dam?
sels were delighted to see Mr. Suivner, and
each took a hand And settled themselves for a
little talk over mattera and things. Mr. Sum?
ner did cot aeem, however, to appreciate their
attention, and, with tho best grace he could
command, withdrew his hands, and, turning
his back, resumed the conversation which had
been interrupted. The party were not pleaa
[ st their reception, and one of the ladies 1
marked: "Well, I didn't think he would be

SATURDAY MORNING, MARCH 20, I860.
JV o Resurrection for South Carolin?.
We have shown in a previous article ho'
little truth there is in the assertion mad
by the Westminster Review, that through01
this State "abject and irrecoverable poi
"erty reigns.'' We now take np the aseei
tion made in the book under review-tba
"South Carolina is utterly and helpless],
As a general proposition it will, we pre
sume, be admitted, that the prosperity of i
country depends upon its natural advan
tages and resouroes, and upon the charac?
ter of its people; it being ooneeded tha
healthiness ol' climate, fertility of soil
abundant mineral wealth and a command?
ing position on the highways of commerce,
are only valuable in proportion to the skill,
energy and perseverance with which the
Boil 10 cultivated, with which the hidden
mineral is brought to light, and with which
the current of trade is made profitable and
advantageous. And in connection with this
there will arise the consideration whether
there is anything in the politioal or sooial
oondition of the people whioh should pre?
vent them from reaping the abundant har?
vest of 8'ircess which our Great Mother
sixers to all her faithful servitors. The
whole subject, then, has these three gene?
ral divisions. 1. Our natural advantages
ind resouroes. 2. The character of our
people. 3. Our political and sooial oon
1. The natural advantages of South Car?
bina. Thia State has seven climatic divi
lionB. 1st. The sea islands. 2d. The tide?
water region. 3d. The belt of about fifty
mileB between the tide-swamp and the sand
hills of the upper oountry. 4th. The sand
hill belt of about thirty miles. 5th. The clay
belt of about twenty miles. 6th. The granite
belt of ninety miles. 7th. Tho mountains.
Without attempting a detailed description
of these different sections, we may say that,
in addition to the well known long staple
sotton, there may be produoed on the sea
islands corn and wheat in abundance, while
nearly every semi-tropical fruit will grow
Lhere luxuriously. Olives, oranges, bananas,
theE spart o grass, ramie, all may be grown
on the sea islands, and there is no reason
why there should not also be seen flocks of
?beep and droves of portly cattle. In the
tide-water region the cultivation of rice is
carried on with great success, and it may
be mentioned here that rioe is now again
being raised in the inland districts, it being
Tound that the grains are larger than those
uf the tide-swamps, although the yield to
the aore is much smaller. Throughout the
upper sections of the State tbe short staple
cotton is the principal crop, but tobacco and
indigo may be cultivated to advantage. In
certain sections the grape is grown in abun?
dance, and the peaches of the State are too
well known to need our praise. Generally
it may be said that there is no valuable
plant, fruit or vegetable which cannot be
profitably produced in South Carolina.
Nor have we any reason to avoid speaking
of our minerals. We have gold in Spartan
burg and other districts in considerable
quantities, and we learn that in the fifteen
months preceding June 1, 1853, the mines of
Mr. Wm. Dorn, in Abbeville and Edgefield
Districts, yielded gold of the value of $300,
000. But, more important than gold, we have
iron of fine quality and lead in abundance.
Besides this, we have the kaolin clay and
buhr stones finer than those imported
at heavy cost from Franoe. And last and
most important of our subterraneous treas?
ures, are the bone deposits or phosphate
beds which spread over many miles of coun?
try. One company alone owns 20,000 acres
of these lands, and similar land in England
has been let for two thousand dollars in
gold per annum. It is the South Carolina
phosphates which are expected to tako the
place of foreign guanos, when the supply
of these shall fail, or when their price shall
put them beyond the reach of the ordinary
consumer. Several companies are already
engaged in mining the phosphate rock and
preparing it for consumption. Its reputa?
tion is spreading rapidly, and tens of thou?
sands of tons have found a ready market.
And there is nothing in our climate which
should make our fruits, our plants, our
cotton and rice, our minerals and our phos?
phates, extremely difficult to work or pre?
pare for sale. According to the census of
1860, the deaths per cent, in South Caro?
lina were 1.41, against 2.0? in Arkansas,
1.45 in Kentucky, 1.76 in Louisiana, 1 76
in Mapsachuaetts, 1.35 iu Connecticut and
1 22 in New York. This is the general per
centage; but in Charleston, the principal
city in the State, the deaths are much lees,
for the tables of mortality show that the
deaths per cent, in this city are Usa than
in either of the principal cities of Europe,
or, with but two or three exceptions, in
either of the Northern and Eastern States.
Without, then, making any exaggerated
statement, we may say that we have vast
natural resources, and that there is nothing
in the climate to prevent those resources
from being turned to the best account.
But, beyond this, we may speak with
pleasure of our system of internal commu?
nication; for South Carolina, which built thc
first long line of railroad in IheTJnited States,
is now busily engaged in extending her
railroad system and perfecting her commu?
nications. The great Blue Ridge Railroad,
the direct road to the West, is in a fair way
of completion. The South Carolina Rail?
road is bringing freight daily from St.
Louis, Memphis, Mobile, Vicksburg and
New Orleans. The Savannah and Charles?
ton Railroad, which, with the Northeastern.
Railroad, completes the direct seacoast line
of railroad travel from Portland, Maine, to
the> Oulf, will be opened throughout in less
than twelve months! And this is not all.
Charleston, the metropolis of South Caro?
lina, is one of the finest seaports on thc
Atlantio coast. From her wharves can be
seen the broad billows of the ooean. Her
harbor is open at all seasons, and upon her
bar is a sufficient depth of water for vessels
of the capacity of four thousand and five
thousand bales of cotton. Charleston is
th? natural outlet for the trade of the West,
and when the Southern Pacific Railroad is
built-and it will be built!-the commerce
of the Indies and of the Pacific ooast will
flow to Charleston, there to pass, not to
New Tork, but directly to Bremen, Havre
and Liverpool. In ten years' time this shall
A few words now as to the character of |
our people. No one will doubt that South
Carolina was highly prosperous before the
war; no one will doubt that ours was a des?
perate condition when the war came to an
end. But, as we have showed in a prece?
ding article, the people were not daunted
or cowed. They went at once to work, they
worked hard, they kept on working, and
notwithstanding the disturbing and danger?
ous influences of party politics, they pro?
duced last year cotton, rice, corn and other
products to the value of at least twenty-five
million of dollars. This ia thc best proof
that can be given of the manhood and in?
dustry of tho people of the State.
Who, thinking of these things, of what
nature bas done for us, and sf the change
in our prospects wrought by four years of |
work, will venture to say that South Caro?
lina is utterly and helplessly crushed ?
The day of her new birth has come, eaoh
month adds te her strength, and in another
iecade she will be touching a height of J
good fortune of which her people scarcely
lream, but which is a certainty, a fixed
fact, in the minds of those who know this
State and this people.
Thc Condition or the State..
We published, yesterday, a report of an j
nterview had with President Grant on
Tuesday last by the Hon. J. P. Reed and
Ion. W. D. Simpson, of this State, mem
>ers of Congress elect. The paper which
vas read by Mr. Reed fairly expresses the
riewa and opinions of the Democracy of j
South Carolina, and has our approval. We
lo not desire to see any faotious opposition
,o the new administration, and while we
lave no faith in either General Grant or his
Jabinet, we are ready to give "a hearty sup
sort to all such measures of the adminis
ration as will in our judgment tend to de
relope the resources and promote the in
erests of a common country."
To the following paragraph from the pa
Der read by Mr. Reed, we call particular j
tttention, as it confirms what we have
tgain and again declared, and what is
briber still confirmed by the important
loeument, published by us this morning, in
?hieb, men of high rank and of all shades
if opinion unite in declaring that invest
aents are as safe here and will be as profit?
able as in any part of the country.
Mr. Read said: "The condition of the people
'of South Carolina socially is and has been
'one of profound peace, and aside from a few
'isolated acts of personal violence that have
'occasionally been committed in different
'parts of the State, such as are unfor?
tunately of two common ccourrence in all
'sections of the Union, good order has pre
'vailed, and the laws, State''and Federal,
''enacted for their government by bodies in
'which they were unrepresented, have been
'respected obeyed and enforced without the
'slightest tendency to tumult or violenoe."
We may add, upon good authority, that
General Grant received Mr. Reed and Mr.
Simpson very courteously, and spoke to
hem with a cordial warmth, of which there
s no sign in the printed report of his reply.

Lotter from James Pagan.
CHESTER, SOUTH CA?- LINA, Jan nary 6,1869.
Dear Sir-I have Just received a communication
from Geo. W. GrafBln, Esq., Treasurer of Patapsco
Guano Com Dany, rcquoating my opinion of tho "PA?
TAPSCO," to 'oe sent direct to yon-which I take
pleasure in doing, as I ?increly believe that it ls the
best fortilizer now in use. I have tested tts merits
fully, and find those who have used it alongside of.
other popular fertilizers, do not hesitate to Rive lt
tbe preference; ?here are as many kinda in nse here
as there are merchants wbo deal in it. No two
houses recommend tho same kind, but dnrinz the
last season I bad a good opportunity of introducing
tho "PATAPSCO" GUANO to some extent.
I pave to t>>n (10) different planters 509 pounds
GUANO to put each on ono acre of land, and agreed to
take part of the product for pay. They all succeeded
well. I got nearly 100 per cent, profit from the ten
acres, and tho plantera are satisQeu that they got 50
to 100 [ er cont, more than they could have expected
en thc samo land without the GUANO. I also sold
small quantities to some twenty or thirty plantera,
who tried it on all sorts ?f land. Some of them
certify to wonderful results, and evory ono of them
bavs engaged to take mora for the coming season. I
expect to sell ten limes the amount which was taken
I began In 1867, and have not heard one man say
lt did not over-pay bim for his outlay. Ia some re?
spects lt must bo superior to the Peruvian Guano.
For instance, you can mix the seed with the FAXAPS
co, and the Peruvian must be covered before plant
lng. Ibe "PATArsco" acts at once ?pon the sprouts,
as soon as lt comes from the soed, and makes it start
rigkt oft growing, and prevents tbe sickly stage
which cotton, without the stimulus, has to go
through-you know this. For two or three weeks
the cotton plant ls in- a condition which is eo-pre
carious that no plantar can say that he has a certain
stand I believe the "PATAPSCO" secares a Setter
and more healthy stand than can be had by the ap?
plication of any other fertilizer. I speak from ex?
periments made for two years. I have planted a. lit?
tle cotton for the purpose of watching the result,
and am sard that soiling tho seed in PATAPSCO
GUANO will secure an early and healthy stand of cot?
ton, which is like getting a good start in any kind of
I would recommend 250 to 300 pennds to the acre.
I made 606 pounds lint from one ac re by planting SCO
pounds of "PATAPSCO," which made 260 pounds the
year beiore withont lt, and the season of 1867 was
better for cotton ihan 1863. Tho some field on the
part not fertilized made more in 1867 than in '68. I
thins it wonl i pay best, however, for about SOO
pounds to the acre. Respectfully,
($gneJ) JAMES PAGAN.
