FROM TUE STATE CAPITAZ.
CLOSISH DATS-THE EDUCATIONAL 8TSTEM-PUB?
LICATION OF LEO AL NOTICES-A COLORED AD?
[FROM ODE OWN CORRESPONDENT. 1
COLUMBIA, S. C., March 22.-The solemn
agreement to adjourn on Wednesday, 24th in?
stant, is not likely to be revoked, as t?ore is a
very general desire to get away. Several bills
of importance will have to go over to tho next
session. Among theso aro a bill for the care
of the poor; a bill to amend the charter of cer?
tain villages, towns and cities in the State, and
tho educational hill. 8enator Jillson, superin?
tendent of education, has worked earnestly tov
inaugurate a well-balanced system of educa?
tion and free schools for the State, and was
warmly supported by the Senate. His efforts,
however, have been thwarted by parties who
managed to get through a bill in the House
ontirely subversive and upsetting tl e whole of
the present excellent arrangeaient of the free
Bchool system established in Charleston and
elsewhere just previous to the breaking out of
the war. The Houses therefore not being able
to agree, both bills have bern laid on the table.
This morning Senator Jillson submitted an
able report, from which the following para?
graphs are taken :
The Committee on Education, to whom was
referred a bill from the House of Representa?
tives entitled "A bill to establish and maintain
a system ot public schools for tho State of
South Carolina," report that they are averse to
the passage of said bill for tho following lea
80U3, to wit :
1st. That it is very deficient and imperfect in
its arrangement and detail.
2d. That its provisions aro totally inadequate
to meet the exigencies incident to the estab?
lishment and' maintenance of a sound, liberal
and progressive system of common school edu?
3. That some of its provisions are unequal,
unjust and uurepublican. The provisions in
section 9 which empower the School Commis?
sioners of the County of Charleston to appoint
a school director from each ward of thc city
of Charleston, are so glaringly unjust and un?
wise as to oe apparent to the most cursory
'observation. The City of Charleston has
already a well organized and well regulated
system of common schools, and an efficient
Board of School Commissioners, who should
remain in office until their successors shall
have been elected by the citizens of said city.
In accordance with the reporta message was
, sent to the House, but that body while agree?
ing to the proposition to appoint a Committee
of Conference, declined to appoint the Corn

from the House, the Senate thereupon laid

STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA, )
j EXECU nvE DEPARTMENT. 5
COLUMBIA. March 22,1869. )
To the Honorable the Senate of South Carolina:
? SENATORS-I respect tully return to your bon
. orable body, in which it originated, "An act
to provide for tho umfo.m and proper promul?
gation of all ie cr ul and public notices" without
! my tpproval, for the following reasons:
I In the first place, I deem it unnecessary, as
there hos been no complaint or evidence* ad?
duced that thc system at prosont existing is
' not amply iuflicient and satisfactory for its
In tbe second place, ( consider it injudicious
in imposing upon a particular State officer, in
addition to his present duties, winch arc suf?
ficiently onerous, a large amount of labor
which legitimately belongs to bis colleagues in
the several departments of the State tr o vorn
ment, and to the local authorities in their re?
spective counties. Tho county officers, es?
pecially, whose duty it is to advertise tho legal
notices, may be supposed, from their local
knowledge, to be better advised of tbe stand?
ing and circulation of their neighboring jour?
nals than poisons at a distan -e. To them tbe
constitution and laws have entrusted the di?
rection and supervision of county affairs and
county expenditures, and uutil tbey are ?hown
to be incompetent or uu tait h ful, I deem it the
part of wisdom and sound policy for the State
to interfere with them in the discharge of
their duties, or intermeddle with strictly coun?
ty matters, as little as is absolutely necessary.
In the third place, the designating of certain
newspapers as "official organs" of the St tte,
and of the counties," I consider highly inexpe?
dient and improper. With but a single excep?
tion, every secular newspaper in tue State is
inimical to the existing State government. I
am unwilling to endorse their misrepresenta?
tions, or to increase their power of mischief,
by conferring upon them the name or character
of "official organs" of the State or counties.
Necessity compels their use to g ve circulation
to our legal ?uti?os, which of themselves suffi?
ciently indicate their official character, aiid as
the object of advertising is publicity, the offi?
cers interested in the several localities are the
best judges of wbat newspapers will most ef?
fectually accomplish their object and satisfy
the requirements of law.
For these reasons I feel constrained to with?
hold my approval of this act. and respectfully
return it to your houorablo body.
I Lave tho honor to be,
ROBERT K. SCOTT, Governor.
On the question, "shall the act become a
law, the objections of his Excellency tho Gov?
ernor to thc contrary notwithstanding," the
vote was, yeas none; nays twenty. So the act

THE NEW THEATRE.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEW8.
In common with the great mags of your
readers, I was delighted to leam, through your
lively and go-ahead paper, that a theatre for
Charleston is at last a fixed fact, aud that the
project is to be carried into effect with so little
delay. It ia to be hoped that a little extra
expense will not bo spared to render it a com?
plete job-an opera house, which, in all its
appointments, shall be an ornament and a credit
to Charleston. No one who is familiar with
tbe dimensions and arrangements of the best
and most comfortable Northern theatres, and
who has eeen the interior of the Adger build?
ing, can fail to have noticed the remarkable
adaptability of that fine structure for conver?
sion, at moderate cost, ? into a first class tem?
ple of the drama; and it would certainly prove
false economy in the end to omit any feature
from the plan of .'.Iteration that would add to
the completeness and elegance bf tho edifice.
Let the stage be eo roomy, in respect to
heightb and depth as well as width, as to meet
evory exigency of the scenic effects which
form so attractive an adjunct of the modern
drama, and, above all, let ready and abundant
means,of egress b? prodded, so that all may
feel that the theatre is a safe as well as an
Wc all know how handsome a revenue the
patchwork theatre of Hibernian Hall has paid
the society, and this, too, through seasons of
unexampled dullness and business torpor; and
now that our oity is waking up, regaining her
lost trade and striding ahead in the race of
commercial progress, no one can doubt that a
good theatre, which shall induce 81 st- class
companies to visit our community, and be
worthy the support of our own citizens and
those who come among us for purposes ot
trade, travel, health or pleasure, will be ono of
the most profitable investments in which capi?
tal can be employed. THE NEWS has already
shown, in a striking fight, the important influ?
ence that a fine theatre would indirectly have
upon the prosperity of our city; and should
the enterprising proprietor of tie Adger build?
ing feel indisposed to supply th? requisite
amount of money to execute the alterations in
fitting style, a few of our leading merchants
wo ld surely find their account in stopping tor
ward and helping on the work as a matter of
AFFAIRS IN THE STATE.
Tho residence of Mr. Thomas Hadlee was
entirely consumed by fire on Sunday night
last-doubtless the work of an incendiary.
A correspondent of the Abbeville Press has
lately visited the flourishing cotton factory
near Pendl?ton village, and says of it: "Ino
machinery is of tho newest and most improv?
ed description, miking tbe best fabrics with
the loast oxponditure of labor. They run two
thousand spindles, Bod ? thc profits for ono
year were such as to enable tho proprietors lo
double tho capacity of the establishment. We
would bo glad to seo tho day when our dis?
trict. will biast ufa factory so profitable to its
proprietors, uud eo beneficial to tho public."
Tho Barnwell Sentinel says : "Whonever we
have inquired of tho planters and tanners of
our couiitiy about their busioess for this year,
they say that they will be sure of a plenty ot
provisions. They ar*- moro particular than
usual as to these crops-using moro manure
Ot homo manu lac turo, as well as town stuff on
tbem. Some of the best of thom say that it is
botter to make corn at a cost of two dollars
per bushel on the farm, than t J pay one dol?
lar a bushel in town for it. This may seem a
little odd at tiret glance, but when tbe snort
measure they get, the hauling, freight and
i outward bound money is placed OD one Bide
i for the ^ ort h.TH shelled corn, and on the
other, their cob, c >rn, shucks, fodder, peas,
1 vines, &c, the fine crab crass and crowfoot,
? it appears that thore is money in it. This
kind of talk from them is grati fying, and leads
us to believe there is hope of abatement of tho
cotton lever. Few of them are so pushed
I about money matters that they are willing to
risk a great deal of future comfort and happi
1 nesB to make a big crop of cotton, when a big
orop always sells for a little price. Those who
. tried the big crop plan in 1867, paid pretty
dearly for it. They learned that there waa no
money in it-it thore was, they didn't see it,
' for it went iuto other people's pockets. We
- are glad to learn alno that they are bringing in
a finer breeds o. hogs and cattle. A pig that
' will be large enough for a good bacon hog at
1 ten and twelve months old, can be kept up and
- attended to at a cost much loss than the town
. meat, which be will net when smoked. Hogs
cannot ba raised any more in the range like in
other timos, unless a swineherd is employed,
3 and one of them can't keep a? with the long
3 legged, piney woods breed."

time since a well known young gentleman ap
? peared at one of our metropolitan churches
t with a very beautiful young lady, and. invok?

ately united to ber in marriage. The lady ap

determination visible on tho countenance of
the yuuth-a pale angry face-oviucing any?
thing but joy in the nuptials. As soon as
the ceremony was concluded the mm turned
to the lady with the remark: " I have kept my
promise now-you are married to me; but I
will never look on vour face again."
There was a frantic appeil in tho girl's

galo tbe merits of the article offered for sale. It ls a
well known fact that many ol tho Brandies, Wines,
Ac, are manufactured from French Extracts, Essen?
tial Otis and Alcohol, which is poisonous, thereby
causing many injurious effects.
Tho public is justly suspicious of nearly every?
thing put up for saleundor the name of Liquors, and
tho trade hos been brought into disrepute, end in
order to insure to those who desire a Pure Article, lt
is only necessary for us to say that we Import Direct

fecily pure as originally imported.

?"WITHOUT A GOOD DIGESTION.-ALL
other temporal blessings are comparatively worth?
less. The dyspeptic millionaire who bas tried all
the potions of the medical profession In vain,

half. Of course he would.

bas been recommended to such a sufferer. Possibly
he has turned from the friend who made the sug?
gestion with a sneer, Intimating that no has no faith
in any "patent medirme." If this has been the
case, so much the worse for him. Hit incredulity
dooms him to a life of misery. All the luxuries
which wealth can purchase aro at his comma ad.
Not one ot them < an give him pleasure. Hts own
iiralional cbsunacy is his bane.
The masses happily for themselves, are less
skepti al lhere ls such a thing as bigoted unbe?
lief, as well as bigoted credulity, and a golden mean
between the two, wL Ich men and women who ore
giit-d with common sense adopt and profit by.
The-e are the class that patronize and recommend
HOVTc/rrER'a BI ri Elis. Why do they app ove
this famous anil-dyspeptic and aoti-bi'isus prep ora?
tion? Sim ely because they have not bc n too much
the slave of senseless prejudice to give it a fair trial,
and have found that when ill other tonics, stimulants
and t.tomachic6 tailed, it produced thedo-lred effect.

Saratoga, in the State of New York, ii one of tl
most remurkablo mineral reservoirs upon the surfst

predominates; in others, Iodine, Magnesia, Sulpha

these waters, os medicinal agents, are know

dred thousand persona visit these Springs annual!:
Many hundred thousand bottles of the water ai
transported and consumed in the various localitii
of the country.
The SARATOGA "A" SPRING WATER is pr

per cent greater mineral properties than tbe eel

inPru-sia; twice that of Vichy in Franoe; near!
three times greater Iban the renowned Seltzer
