A special exception is made in the case of the
postmaster at Covington, Kentucky, the father
of the President, who draws an annual salary of
$3500, and who has been present in the Senate
for several days, patiently listening to the Rad?
ical defiances burled athis son.
-Persons wbo may be thinking of emigra?
ting to the White Pine region on account of
the glowing descriptions of the enormous
yield of siver from the mines, would do well
first to study the following statement by a San
Francisco paper, of the prices which are paid
in the Whito District for staple articles: Lum?
ber, from $250 to $300 per thousand ; hay, $300
per ton; barley, fifteen cents per pound; flour,
$16 per cwt.; bacon, forty-five cents; salt pork,
forty cents; beans, twenty-eight cents; sugar,
thirty-five cents; coffee, seventy ce its; tea,
$1 59 per pound; butter, $l;?heese, forty cents;
noe, thirty-eight cents; fresh meats, from
twenty-two to forty cent?. .
-It is, understood the administration has
determined to surrender the warrants of par?
don issued by Mr. Johnson, and recalled by
President Grant, only in cases where the par?
don is unconditional. IQ caeos where the
pardon was granted upon performance of cer?
tain stipulations or conditions., the recalled
pardons are to be retained, and the prisoners
for whom they were issued are to be held in
custody as though no pardon had been issued
from President Johnson. The theory is that
where the pardon is unconditional it is be?
yond tl e control of the Executive after it has
passed from his banda in such case, the mere
_ -petition of the party seeking Executive clem
ol ency being construed as an acceptance of the
pardon; but where the pardon ie dependent
upon a oompb'anco with certain conditions, an
absolute acceptance of the terms of those con?
ditions is, on the part of the prisoner, deemed
. necessary t:> give effect to the pardon.
5 -The New Orleans Times thus refers to a
^painful misfortune which has befallen one of
the most gifted sons of louisiana: "Yesterday
' a petition was presented to Judge Duvlgneand
by Messrs. Charvet and Duplantier, praying
that Pierre Sordo be interdicted and tbat a
curator be appointed to take charge of his
affairs. The petition alleges his permanent
and complete prostration and incapacity. This
distressing misfortune has long been known in
the community. From delicacy to bis esteem?
ed family, it has not been regarded as proper
to be referred to in the public prints. This
reason can no longer suppress the expression
of our profound sorrow and sympathy for the
-distinguished gentleman and his afflicted fami?
ly. The unhappy condition ti uir. Soule has
been produced by family sorrows of the most
distressing charaoter. His only son some
time ago manifested symptoms of mental aber?
ration. These have become permanent, and
now both father and son domand the incessant
care of devoted relatives aud friends."
-Mr. Fiak is fighting bard for the possession
of Commodore Vanderbilt's title-"Thc Great
Railway King." He now asks the New York
Legislator) for a law authorizing the Erio
Railway Company to consolidate with all tho
roads it bas bought or leased, extending from
New York to Chicago and Cincinnati, including
"the property of the Long Dock Company, the
Paterson and Hudson River Railroad, the Pat?
erson and Ramapo Railroad, the Paterson and
Newark Railroad, and tho Northern Railroad
in tho State of New Jorsoy, tho New York and
Newburg Railroad, tho Buffalo, New York and
Erie Railroad, ibo Rochester and Qenessee
Valley Railroad, and the Chemung Railroad
in the State of New York ; tho Hawley
Branch Railroad, the Jefferson Railroad in
Buffalo, Biadford and- Pittsburg Railroad in
the State of Pennsylvania, thc Atlantic and
Great Western Railroad, extending from Sala?
manca, in the State of Now York, through the
States of Pennsylvania and Ohio, to Cleveland
and Dayton in the last Damed State; thc Cin?
cinnati, Hamilton and Dayton Railroad, thc Day?
ton and Michigan Railroad, in the State of
Ohio, aDdn contemplated line of railroad be?
tween West Salem and Toledo, also in ibo
State of Ohio, and thence lo Chicago, in the
State of Illinois." The New York papers are
mnch incensed at this proposal, and oppose it
tothebest of their ability. "Itsresult,"say
they, "will bo to maka Mr. Fisk dictator and
drive away business that would otherwise
cluster around the naiural centre of the trade,
commerce and finances of the country."
-From a recent article in the Columbus,
Ga., San, we learn that that city is making
rapid strides in cotton manufacturing, and
bids fair to be the Lowell of the South in this
respect. In tb o last six months over $600,000 ot
additional stock has been subscribed to manu?
factories, and a? least two-thirds of that
amount paid in. Six weeks ago the Eagle and
PbceDix Company advertised for $450,000 worth
of stock to build another mill of equal capacity
with the pressnt one. As we have stated, con?
sid?r?t: y over that amount has been obtained,
and many thousands of dollars-enough to
build anothei small factory-refused. The
Muscogeo Company have raised $120,000,
all they wanted, in the same time, and the
Columbus* Factory all it desired, somo
$40,000. For some time past tho Eagle and
Pheonix, tbe Columbus and the steam facto?
ries havo been running 13.000 spindles and
many looms. The Muscogee Company have a
large brick building already completed, and
will have4000 spindles in it by next fall-all at
work. The additional mill of tho Eagle and
Pheonix Company will bo in operation in less
than a year. Thus, by next winter, 19,000
spindles will be running in Columbus, consu?
ming, OD an average, twenty bales of cotton
per day; and, besides cotton, a large variety of
woollen goods will be manufactured. By next
summer, at least 28,000 spindles will be iu ope?
ration. The people there are taking hold o'
matters in earnest, and are not waiting l'or the
action of Northern capitalists. All the money
needed can be obtained in that section.
WEBKSSDA? HOBBING, MARCH 24, 1869.
Risen from Commercial Reatta 1
Charleston is now. feeling the healthy in?
fluence of the profitable cotton crop of the
year, which gare the producer the means
of paying off a load of old debts and left
him with some money in hand for the pur-:
chase of the comforts as well as the neces?
saries of life.
As well as can be learned from merchants,
jobbers and railroad men, the spring busi?
ness is the best that has been known since
the olose of the war. The stores and ware?
houses are lively with customers, the rail?
road depots are Siled with freight, the
whole city is bright and gay. Nor are
the strange faces which are Been in the
streets the least pleasing sign of the pro?
gress we have made. We have won back
this year customers from Georgia, from
Florida and from North Carolina, whom we
had lost, and the old current of trade is
beginning to flow into the accustomed chan?
nels. And to the bustling business men
may he added the hundreds ef tourists from*
the North and,from Europe, who are spend?
ing a few quiet days in Charleston. The
hotels, are so full that travellers have been
refused quarters, and have had to shift for
themselves in private houses. One hundred
and fifty persons registered their names on
Saturday for a steamboat trip to Fort
Sumter, Sullivan's Island and the Morris
Island batteries. On every side there are
signs of new life, signs that the day of
awakening has oome, signs that the good
old city is at last assuming her ancient
rank as the principal seaport on the South?
ern Atlantic coast.
We made haste slowly, and at limes it
seemed that the reaotion would never come.
But we are stronger and wiser, and, we
hope, more progressive, because of the very
waiting and hoping which it has been so hard
to bear. We must have learned to adapt our
commercial selves to changing conditions
and altered times. We must have learned
that in these, days men who desire business
[ must ight for it and win it. We should
have learned that Charleston cannot be
kept down, cannot be crushed, cannot be
killed; that we have nothing to fear in the
long run from spasmodic competition, and
that we have it in our power* to make
Charleston, within ten years, the port of
import and export for the whole Southwest
and the Pacific coast-a grand metropoli?
tan city, as far superior to the Charleston
of to-day as this present Charleston is su?
perior to the Charleston of one hundred
years ago. And we shall retain our old
nobility of spirit, our old purity of thought,
our old fidelity to the plighted word; for to
us-though it may seem old-fashioned to
say so-the money and the lands, the
crowded wharves and the lofty warehouses,
would be dearly bought* at the price of
the integrity of our people.
A Distinction Witta a Difference.
During the debate on the resolution to
suspend the writ of habeas corpus in Lau?
rens, Abbeville, Edgefield and Newberry,
now indefinitely postponed, DeLarge, one of
the colored representatives from Charleston,
"warned the members that they were tread?
ing on dangerous ground and advised
"them to ponder well before they gave their
"vote in favor of a measure that struck at
"the dearest liberties of the people. If it
"is true"-he said-"as alleged, that in the
"counties referred to, parties committing
'.crimes are allowed to escape without the
"merited punishment, it is the fault of the
"judges, and they should be impeached."
On the other han J, Whipper, a Michigan-born
negro representative, said "he favored the
"rsBolulion. Only a few days ngo n mein
"ber of the constabulary force waa mur?
dered in Edgefield County, and when the
"murderer was arrested and brought to
"Columbia a writ of habeas corpus was asked
"for, and thanks be to the sheriff he re
"fused to obey the writ, well knowing, as
"he did, that justice would not be dono in
"the case. He knew, however, that action
"would be brought against the sheriff, and
"he would be fined; but he (Whipper) would
"be willing at the next session to relieve
"him of the penalty. He said it was nec?
essary and right that the writ should be
"suspended in the localities named."
This we can understand. A "legislator"
who thanks a sheriff for refusing to obey
a writ of habeas corpus would naturally de?
sire to tear from tho whito man every
shadow of civil protection. And this negro
Whipper, who openly applauds a violation
of the law of the State, and of the Consti?
tution of the State, is elected by the Gene?
ral Assembly TO coniFr THE LAWS OF SOUTH
A PROCLAMATION has been issued by
Governor Scott, directing all needful mec
sures to be taken to carry into effect the
recent act of the General Assembly, for the
removal of the county seat of Barnwell
County from Barnwell to the Town of
The report of the majority of the Senate
Committee on Pacific Railroad?, made on
February 19tb, 1869, is au exhaustive argu?
ment in favor of two additional trunk rail?
road? to the Pacifio-one from Lake Supe?
rior to Puget's Sound; the other from Little
Rock, in Arkansas, and from the terminus
of the Kansas Pacific railway in Ka ne as,
by the route of the thirty-fifth parallel, to
San Diego aud San Francisco. The report
declares affirmatively that the bill reported
by the majority of the committee was in?
tended to be the finality of legislation in
aid of Pacific railways; that after having
provided substantially two additional trunk
outlets-ene for the Northern States and one
for the Southern States-at suitable initial
points, it waB intended to stop there all Con?
gressional aid, and leave to private enter?
prise and State endowment the future con?
struction of branches. The report shows
at length and with a large array of statis?
tics, derived from the experience of the
inSuenoe of railways in England, France,
Belgium, Holland and the United States, that
they are the greatest of all modern agencies
for the production of wealth and the devel?
opment of trade aud commerce. It demon?
strates that the import and export trade of ]
the principal countries in Europe are in
precise proportion to the development of j
their railway systems, respectively; that
the experience of Belgium, France, Austria,
Spain and Italy shows that a tax on rail?
way receipts is the beat Binking fund thus
far devised for the speedy payment of na?
tional debts. It also shows that two addi?
tional trunk railways to the Pacific are com?
mercially necessary, demonstrating that a
single line cannot do the work that will be
thrown upen it; that additional lines, free
from obstruction by snow, are needed to
maintain uninterrupted intercourse; to pre?
vent the evils of a monopoly; to avoid po?
litical discontent in the Northern and South?
ern sections of the Union; to bring the
publio domain into market; to increase im?
migration from Europe; to quadruple our
yield of gold and silver; to save two-thirds
of the cost of wagoning supplies to the 109
military posts in the Indian country, which
now amounts to about seventeen millions a
year; to reduce by one-half the number of
troops maintained in the Territories by the
greater mobility the roads will give the
remainder, and to practically end Indian
wars, whioh the report shows ooat the coun?
try during the last campaign about one mil?
lion dollars a week. The majority of the
oommittee urgently recommend aid to the
roads asp measure of immediate and last?
ing economy to the government. The report
proves that it is safe for the government to
aid them, without reference to the inciden?
tal advantages of doing so, by showing from
the accounts of the Quartermaster's Depart?
ment with the Kansas Pacifio Railroad that
upon an average use of 220 miles of the
road its earnings for work done for the gov?
ernment not only paid tho interest on the
bonds advanced to the road and provided the
Binking fund to redeem them, but brought the
government in debt to the road. The report
opposes grants hereafter of government aid
like that given to the Union Pacifio and Cen?
tral Pacific, in bonds directly issued, but
advocates a guarantee of the interest of |
the mortgage bonds of the two additional
trunk Pacific roads, to be issued to a de?
fined and limited extent. It declares that
they are military, commercial and political
necessities, and concludes with the aver?
ment that the people demand their construc?
tion, and do not, as -has been alleged, par?
ticipate in, or sympathize with, the recently
raised outcry against Pacifio Railway aid.
