TIIE SOUTH CAROLINA RAILRO
Propositions Made by tho City Con
of Augusta and the Counter Prof
tion of the South Carolina Kaili
The following papers, which have been
nished ns at our own request, for the info
tion of the public, show what were the pt
eitions made to and by the South Cari
Railroad Company for tho settlement c
differences with tho City of Augusta, in
ncction with the Columbia and Augusta ]
It appears to us that tho propositions
jittedby the Committee of Directors of
South Car .-lina Railroad Company are lit
in their terms and free from all reasonable
jection. We venture, therefore, to hope thal
City Council of Aurusta, upon receiving
report or their committee, will favorably ev
tain the propositions which bave been mad
them, and so solve the difficult questions wi
threaten to embarrass both themselves and
fc'outh Carolina Railroad Company:
PROPOSITION OF THE RAILROAD COMMUTE!
THE CITY COUNC'L OF ATIOOSTA.
1. The South Carolina Railroad Comp
shall consent to tho use of their right of
from Graniteville to Hamburg by the Colun
and August * Railroad Company, and
which tho Columbia and Augusta Railr
Company shall pay fair compensation,. and
tho event of those two roads disagreeing ai
what is a fa<r compensation, then the tn J
to be referred to the Superintendents or Cl
Engineers of the Georgia Railroad. Macor :
Augusta Railroad, and the Western < M Au
tic Railroad; and in the event of the tai t rs
either one or aU of the above named a:'.ii
tors to act, then the City Council to name uti
parties to act in the place of those who ii
thus decline. This to bo done wit un
months from the acceptance of this agreeme
both parties agreeing to abide by the deas
of said arbitrators.
2. That till the Columbia and Augu
Railroad shall have completed their bric
across the Savannah River, the ?South Carol;
Railroad is to allow them (the Columbia a
Augusta Railroad) the use of .heir bridge n
track, so as to enable the Columbia and Augu;
Railroad to connect with the Georgia Railrc
and other railroads connecting in the city.
3. That the Columbia and Augusta Kailr:
pfiall, a their own proper expense, built
bridge across the Savannah River, oppos
Washingl on-etieet, of sufficient width to all
of two tracks, the one for themselves and t
other for the use of the South Carolina Rs
road, all subs ?quent repairs to be done by bc
4. After these respective tracks shall ha
crossed the bridge, then at a conveniei t poi
between Bay and Reynolds streets the ti
roads sball unite on a common track, at th?
mutual expense; tbeu use one track till cc
nee ted with the street railroad track, wi
which company they are to arrange for passii
over their track on Washington-street, co
necting with the Georgia Railroad passoug
5th. With a view to harmonize the conti ic t ii
interest of the Columbia and Augusta Riihoi
and tho South Carolina Railroad, the Ci
Council propose to waive all back claims again
the ?outh Carolina Railroad Company. Clair
arising from non-compliance on their part wi
their contracts with the city, piovided that f
the future they and all other railroads ente
ing tho city will bc held to a rigid accountabi
ty for forfeiture of contracts.

COUNTER PROPOSITION OF THE COMMITTEE O
DIRECTORS OF THE SOUTH CAROLINA RAH
To Messrs J. T. Gardiner, Chairman; Wrig/u
Allen, Goodrich and Meyer, Committee o<
the City Council of Augusta :
GENTLEMEN-The Committee of the Sont!
Carolina Railroad Company decline, with re
gret, the plan proposed by the Committee o
the City Council of Augusta for settling th
difficulties arising out of tho construction c
the Columbia anti Augusta Railroad.
The relations between the company they rc
present and the City of Augusta are cf an an
cient date, and have always been of tho raosl
friendly character, and the best dispositiot
prevails on the part of the South Carolina Rail?
road to maintain those relations unimpaired
They assure the committee from Augusta tba
the company have always been in th > bobe
that their several contracts with the City o
Augusta have always been fulfilled by thc
company in a manner entirely satisfactory tc
the City Council. Ko claims for violation:
thereof have ever been made on them, and thu
committee cannot admit that such claims ex?
ist, or consent to make them the subject of ne?
They believe the matters in dispute can bc
simplified, and that, as lar as the City of Au?
gusta ia concerned, they may be easily and
Between them and the South Carolina Rail?
road the only matter in debate is th* repay?
ment of the "sut scription made by the South
Carolina Railroad to tbe capital stock of the
Macon Railroad, according to the r?solution ol
the City Council, of eighteenth December,
eighteen hundred and sixty-one. The consid?
eration received therefor by this company is
the exclusive right of connecting with other
railroads in the City of Augusta; no other
railroad from Charleston or Columbia, under
the resolution of the City Council, can be ad?
mitted to tbe enjoyment of this privilege with?
out first tondering to the South Cat olma Rail?
road the repayment of the said subscription
and the interest thereon. The city now desire
to accord this privilege to tho Columbia and
Augusta Railroad Company. The South Car?
olina Railroad will meet this proposal in a
spirit of liberality and of friendship. Instead of
insisting upon the return of the entire sum of
their subscription and of the interest thereon,
as provided in the resolution of the City Coun?
cil, they offer to relinquish the exclusive en?
joyment of this privilege on receiving one-half
of the said sum of principal and intel est; pro?
dded, that all privileges enjoyed by other rail?
roads in the City of Augusta, or hereafter con?
ferred on any railroad, shall be likewise ex?
tended to the South Carolina Railroad. This
will remove tho only impediment to the en?
trance o? the Columbia and Augusta Railroad
into Augusta, and settle tho only question
connected therewith, in which the City of Au?
gusta is directly implicated; and this commit?
tee indulge the hope that it may be accepted
as a separate and distinct proposition, and
thus remove all cause of disquietude between
the City of Augusta and this com pan v.
The only matter in dispute with the Colum?
bia and Augusta Railroad consists row in the
uppoeitioti made by thc South Carolina Rail?
road to t.'.e construction of the former road on
their right of way and over their laud. Th ip
opposition bas been made by the Directors of
thc South Carolina Railroad from a sonso ot
the duty imposed upon them by the great trust
of which they are tho custodians and guar?
dians. They'hope this motive will be recog?
nized and admitted by tho committeo from
Augusta, and tho South Carolina Railroad
Company lelieved from all BOSpiciou of less
worthy motives. They are willing to meet tho
committee from Augusta in tho spirit that
animates that committeo; and to make a sin?
cero effort to compose tho differences, and
put an end to tho litigation that has grown
out of this opposition.
It has been alleged that tho encroachments
thoy oppose cause thom no damage and nu in?
convenience. This is an erroneous impre ssion.
If the South Carolina Railroad did not possess,
in their opinion, thu right to insist upou the
removal of thu track of the new road, beyond
the boundaries of their lands and of their
right of way. they would cheerfully pav ten
thousand d liars "to effect it. In a spirit of
compromise they make tho following pro?
1st. They will consent to the present lino of
the Columbia and Augusta Railroad traci?, on
the payment of fifty thousand dollars as a cou
sideration therefor, or
2d. They will leave the question of compen?
sation in abeyance u.itil ino courts shall have
decided what the rights of tho South Carolina j
Railroad arc, and that they will leave the
amount of compensation to be mado by the
Columbia and Augusta Railroad to bo fixed by
three competent persons, one to be solectod by
each of tho two companies, and a third to be
appointed by the two thus selected.
The acceptance of either of these two pro?
posals, and of that in relation to entering Au?
gusta, will remove all hindrances out of the
way, both of the City of Augusta and of tho
Columbia and Augusta Railroad, and leave
them free to carry all their plans into opera?
tion. It is deemed bettor for tho interests of
the two companies that each should enter Au?
gusta upon its own track and bridge; it is
against the interest and convenience of tho
South Carolina Railroad to give to another
company the use of its bridge and of the track
in Augusta, which form its means of connec?
tion with the Georgia Railroad and other rail?
roads in Augusta, and they do not desire to
negotiate for such an arrangement.

IEE GO URDI N'S' AND SUMTER
PUBLIC MEETING?TIN MANNING AND
Preparations for Organizing thc Com
puny- Appointment of a General Agent
-How the Work ls tobe Done.
A public mooting of tho citizens of Clarendon
County was held in Manning on Monday last,
to take into consideration the building of a rail?
road from GoordiL's Depot, on the Northeast?
ern Railroad, to Sumter via Manning.
The attendance was more than respectable
in point of numbers, and tho assemblage en?
tered upou the consideration of the affair with
a heartiness and earnestness that augurs well
for the carrying out of tba enterprise.
On motion, Hon. L. F. Rhame was called to
the chair, and R. M. Thompson, Esq., was re?
quested to act as secretary.
The ?rs t speaker io favor of the proposed
read was D. B. McLanrin, Esq., of Sumter,
who announced the gratifying fact that tbe
Northeastern Railroad Company felt a deep in?
terest in tho road, and would subscribe libe?
rally to secure its construction, and would, in
all probability, endorse tho bonds of the com?
pany to be formed, if they should find it neces?
sary to issue Buch bonds to raise funds for the
building of the road. The advantages of such
an endorsement can be appreciated when it is
stated that tho affairs of the Northeastern
road are in a prosperous and improving condi?
tion, and that they have been able to meet the
interest on thou* own bonds regularly and
Mr. McLanrin was followed by J. Galluchat,
Esq., and by Colonel J. P. Richardson, who
was in favor of running tho road from Gour
diu's via Manning to Manchester, and by Mr.
Davis, who was inf ivor of running the road
itcross thc Columbia and Charlotte Road to the
mountain reg bu of North Carolina. Mr. B. P.
Barron followed, and called upon the meeting
to limit their views to some attainable object.
He said there was no danger of failure, and
that tho proposed road from Sumter to Gour?
de's could be built.
Tho following resolutions were unanimously
liesolced. That a committee of throe persons
each election precinct bo appointed to so?
it tho subscription of a contingent fund for
the purposo of cmploxing a general agent-to
aid lu 01 K>* until is mn company and or assisting
in securing au engineering party to determine
the most desirablo location for tbe road.
Resolved, That the amounis severally sub?
scribed by parties for this purpose be entered
to their credit as so much paid on stock in
case the road shall be built.
Resoloed, That a financial committee of three
persons bo appoioted, who shall receive and
take charge of the funds thus collected and
disburse them on the order of the general
agent whom we may appoint.
Resoloed, That desiring to secure the serv?
ices of a general agent to promote the enter?
prise whose high character, energy and long
oxperiencc in railroad enterprises may furnish a
guarantee of success, wo recognize in D. B.
McLauriu, Esq.. the man emiently fitted for
tho position, and that this meoting unanim?
ously request him to act as tho general agent
for the people of Clarendon County in promo?
ting the organization of a company to under?
take the but 'ding of a railroad from Sumter to
The following were announced as members
of the Financial Committee : B. A. Walker, J.

Thc meeting then adjourned to meet again
on the first Monday in May.
HOW THE WOBK CAN BE DONE.
The Clarendon Press, to which we are In?
debted tor tho material for the foregoing re?
port of the meeting, is doing good service in
showing tho character of tho new road, its
probable effects upon tho district, and how tho
work may be done. It says :
We regard the' success of the enterprise as
secure if tho people of this District will but
come up to the mark and do their duty. There
is no cicubt about our ability to carry out the
enterprise to a successful issue if we will only
eviuce a determination to do so. lt is not a
long road wo have to build to place ourselves
in connection with the rest of tho world, and .
the region through which it is to run is of a
character most favorable to its economical
structure. There are fow roads which
have so favorable a location. The land from
ono tei minus to tbe other is an almost un?
broken level, presenting no swamps of any
magnitude. The grading is light, requiring
no deep cuts or high embankments. We esti?
mate tho whole length of the road from Gour?
de's to Sumter at about thirty-eight miles.
I'S cost, nil complete, caunot bo wry far from
$9000 a mile, at which rate the* eu tiro road
wutitd lequire au outlay of $342.000. Wero the
whole ;.m?uut to bo subscribed iii money, al
this time, wo would despair of its completion
for some j ears to come. Fortunately, how?
ever, such is not thu case. Labor und material
will represent the larger portiou of that sum
labor and material that wo have here in our
own district. There aro very few men inter?
ested in ita construction who caunot subscribe
something to its stock aud command t li o lab ir
to work out their stock. If our pooplo caDUot
subscribe money they ca i supply labor to
some extent, and if wo will lake hold bf thc
enterprise in earnest wo can build tho road
withiu ourselves and build it promptlv. Wo ot
Clarendon must ns-unie, as our sharo of tho
work, the building of the road from Gourdin's
to Maiming, and there is no tear but tba
other parties deeply interested-but not so
v.tally as ourselves -will continue tho road to
Let every maD, however poor, bestir him?
self aud, if be can do no more, let bim take at
least one sharo in the stock and exert himself,
and, if necessary, deny himsolf some conitorta
to pay up bis subscription to secure the com?
pletion ot the road. Ibero arc many among
us who are very poor, but they aro thc men to
whom tue building of tho road is indispensable.
A bOlf imposed tax by such persons to secure
the building of tho road, is ?ot near so ouer
ous as the j'early outlay to which they aro
driven bv want of a railroad. Their heavy
hauling to and from the railroad, and tho high
prices Ibev are compelled to pay ior every
kind of provisions and merchandise, amounts
in the course of a year to a considerable sum.
But there is a negative loss much heavier than
this in not being able to turn their labor bo the
best account for want of facilities for tbe safe,
economical and prompt transportatioi f pro?
duce to i ready market. Thia want compels
Bmall fanners to rely upon cotton an a market
crop, and from its cultivation they realize from
twenty-five to thirty dollars ta an acre, when
railroad facilities would enable them from
truck patches and gardens-to make from two
to five hundred dollars from each acre that
they may be able to cultivate.
Tho landholders of tho county form a class
to whose interesa the building of this road is
indispensable. It will not only bring among
?B labor of amore reliable character, but it will
open a market for their landa which at present
are almost valueless. Purchasers will not in?
vest in lands at a distance from railroad facili?
ties, except at a merely nomiual price. If cot?
ton should very materially decline in price,
which, under the improved system of culture,
we think ?3 inevitable, to what use can our
lands so far from market be put ? With a rail?
road running by our very doors, there are
scores of other productions in the culture of
which we can moat profitably and pleasantly
engage, to which we cannot otherwiao resort.
At present we need a subscription which can
be made availablo for securing tho charter and
inaugurating the work at an early day. Thia
is tho present and immediate want. When tho
company shall have been organized a subscrip?
tion in land will be available for raising funds
to carry the work onward lo completion.
It will be necessary to make a conveyance of
the iand to tho company; bot the owner need
not, on that account, be deprived of tho nae or
actual possession of his land. If he subscribe
Uve hundred a cr.a of land valued at two dol?
lars an acre he will simply havo to pay that
amount in money to thc road at some futuro
day, whon it ia comparatively easy for him to
do ao, when the lana, which be baa continued
to occupy and employ, will be releaaed to him
enhanced perhaps five or ten times in value by
the mero opening of the road. The company
in thc meantime has, without disturbing the
occupant in the possession of his land, eimply
employed it as a baais for negotiating a lo?n of
money to carry out an enterprise which haB
reade him perhaps ten times as wealthy os he
Public Menin? In Sumter.
A public meeting of the citizens of Sumter
was also held on Monday last, Mr. A. J. Moses
in the chair.
Mr. D. B. McLaurin addressed the meeting,
and stated that the residents of Clarendon had
hal a large and enthusiastic meeting at Man?
ning, and had subscribed liberally, both iu
lands and money, to construct their portio J,
?nd it now remained for the citizens of c'um
.dr lo say whether or not they ahould have the
road built. He also stated that it was a cer?
tainty that the road from Manning to Gour
din's would be built, and he urged upon the
citizens the great importance of the enter?
prise, and boped they would not let the oppor?
tunity pa: . from them to place themselves in
a condition of independence from tho present
monopoly that was now practiced upon them.
Mr. C. H. Moise ihen addressed the meeting,
and read a letter from the present superinten?
dent of the Northeastern Railroad, Mr. 8. S.
Solomons, which information waa carefully
considered by the meeting. Ho then stated to
tho meeting the importance of immediate and
prompt action on the part of tho citizens of
our town and surrounding country. He advo?
cated, in strong terras, the groat advantages
ni tho load, as it would place us indirect com?
munication with tho seaboard. At the conclu?
sion of his remarks, he offered tho following
resolution, which was unanimously adopted :
R'eolced, That a committee of five be ap?
pointed by tho chairman, at bis leiaure, for the
purpose of raising on amount of money suffi?
cient to defray our proportion of tho expense
of a survey of the railroad from Gourdiu'a to
Mr. John H. Foriter then addressed the
meeting, strongly advocating the construction
ot the road, and stated that if the citizens of

Colonol J. D. Blanding then addressed the
meeting at some length, and gave some valua?

urged upon all persons who had any intorost
in tho welfaro and proaperity of our town to
adv?calo the construction of tho road at once,
and ho also stated, trora bis personal knowl?

meeting adjourned to meet again on Monday,

A Washington correspondent writes to the
Cincinnati Commercial :
Let the socret adviser be any one, or no one,
the fact is patent that the patronage is being
horribly managed, and the wrath gathera force
as the offices are filled. I do not mean the
ordinary disgust that comes of disappointment,
but an uglier feeling than that. Heretofore
we have always had certain eminent leaders
who shared the councils and readily shoulder?
ed the responsibility, but now these leaders are
the men who were first amazed, and are now
About the Capitol one hears nothing but
curses, not loud, but deep, that follow every
batch of appointments. These Congressmen
complain that they are not only disappointed,
but are treated in a way to add insult to injury,
i he grim little sphinx sits iu ailonce, puffing
tobacco smoke in their eyes, and responding
"yee" or "no" with about as much meaning aa
there is in his face.
And yet, to one who looks philosophically at
the situation, these men BO treated really make
the government. General Grant feels hie
power now, but it is tho power of the patronage,
and eveiY day this lessens. Tho time is not
distant when tho politicians will have no cause
to call at the White House, and the eyes of the
people will be tamed to the Capitol, where the
fgovernment really is, and about that time the
ittle sphinx will lay aside bis cigar, and look,
too, m that direction.
This would all be very well, If that confound?
ed Democratic party did not intervene. But
timea hard, money scarce, and taxation heavy,
the people seo, in dismay, that the rich grow
richer, and the poor poorer, and with that dis?
position to abitt position when sick, or in pain,
they turn to a party that can give them no
