STATE AGRICULTURAL CONVENTION
SECOND OAT'S PROCEEDINGS.
[SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE NEWS.]
COLOMBIA, April 29.-The Convention met
this morning. President Hagood in the chair,
Mr. Lawton submitted a report from the Com?
mittee on Manufactures, on the communication
of Colonel Palmer, relative to the importance
of a general system of manufacturing and
pi onie, to be derived from investments in cot?
The committee recommend its publication
and tbat it be recorded on the minutes of the
association. The committee fluter themselves
from the spirit manifested in this assembly, of
the practical ii telligenco of the State, that the
views and facts set forth by Colonel Palmer will
attract tho earnest attention of the people of
South Carolina, and they regard thc establish?
ment of manufactories in every section of the
South as vitally associated with agriculture,
and to redound to the public welfare and pros?
perity. To grow our own cotton, the best in
staple and quality, and to convert that same
into yarns aid fabrics for export, certain ly ap?
pear J tc be the policy and the hope of the South,
if lessons of wisdom are to be taken from the
past. The report was adopted.
On motion of Colonel Thomas, Colonel
Palmer was requested to lay his comtnunica
tion before the Commercial Convention, to
meet in Memphis.
Mr. Boniest submitted the report of the
Committee on Emigration and Labor.
The committee say that there can be no con
coalment of the fact that we are living under
new and altered condition of affairs, and
though there be an honest difference of opin
ion among enr oitizeus as to whether this new
system be to the advantage of, or prejudicial
to, the in tcrests of the country and the devel
opment of the resources of the State, interest
and duty alike demand that we face the facts
in cc>jpformity with their stern demands. No
question is perhaps of more importance to all
the material interests of the State than
that of labor, for without it of what avail
will be all the improvements in the mechanical
arts and agriculture. Under that ancient re?
gime, when the old Palmetto State enjoyed
flood-tide of prosperity, there was an organi
zation and an efficiency which crowned our
agricultural efforts with assured success; but
oar altered circumstances demand an altered
basia of operations. That labor is new in
large measure disorganized and unreliable
may be in part attributed to the mistakes of
the agriculturists themselves in making the
laborer a partner io thc retmls of his labor, as
well as to his sadden altered condition, and
the miserable infinenco of wily politicians
What remains to ns must be made available to
the greatest possible extent, and what is then
wanting io supply tho demand must be brought
to ns from the crowded domains of Europe
whose hands are always now extended to
g?nerons and hospitable America, ask
ing among as a fiiome and a coan
try. The committee deem it important to
to tho availability and organization of the
present class of laborers, upon whom we are
in the main now dependent, that there should
be as far os possible a nm form i ty of wages in
the matter of compensation to the laborer, and
an equitable and just fulfillment of all con?
tracts. Thi committee having adverted to the
fact that the present supply of labor is inad??
quat to the demand, the query arises how this
difficulty is to bo met, and the answer is, by
the introduction of emigrants from abroad
The practical success of this remedy is fully
established by reference to what has
been already accomplished by tho Emi?
gration Society of Newberry, which, with
a capital of a tew hundred dollars, after twelve
months' existence, and without a State appro?
priation to back her, hos already introduced
neariy three hundred emigrants into her own
and surrounding countios. and is now arrang?
ing for a much more extensive introduction of
laborers during the ensuing season. The la?
borers introduced are, with very few exceptions,
giving universal satisfaction to their em?
ployees. The committee hope this will be tho
nucleus to gather to an indefinite extent an
industrious and honest chus of laborers.
The report was adopted, and on motton the
committee was requested to report a plan
whereby the varions aectious of tbe State may
avail themselves of the benefits of the New
be. ry Immigration Society.
Mr. Pope submitted a report from tho Com?
mittee on the Constitution. The report was
taken np, the sectious lonaidored and sepa?
rately agreed to, and the constitution was
adopted as a whole.
On motion of Mr. Gilbert, a committee of
firmas appointed to kcopnp a correspondence
with influential persons in Get many, France,
England and other countries of Europe, on tho
subject ot immigration.
Mr. Thomas offered a roso'ution, which was
adopted, that the first annual fair bo held in
Columbia on the second Monday in November,
aud the Executive Committee be requested to
make all tho necessary arrangements.
The following were elected members of the
Executive Committee: Hon. John Townsend,

W. 8. Honerey, ol' Charleston; Edward Mackin?
tosh, of Society Hdl; J. B. Paluer, of Saluda;

[FBOM OUR SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT.]
COLUMBIA, S. C.. April28,1869.-The attempt
of the Radicals on Tuesday to carry the town?
ship election, of which you have alieady been
advised, came very near being successful, so
artfully had the plot beon contrived. Under
the law it is necessary to give fifteen days' no?
tice of tho holding of thc elections, aud this
was done-by posting four handbills, one in
the city ind throe in out of the way places,
where they would only be seen by the buzzards
'ind, perhaps, a passing locomotive. The
handbill posted in the city was lorn down as
soon as it was put up-of course, by accident
and the first intimation that the citizens
had of the elections was the opening of
the poils. Doe notice had been given
in the Uoion League meetings, and in a few
minutes one hundred rotes were polled. Of
the one hundred, ninety-five were black and
five white. S. L. Hose, member of Congress,
so-called, was one of the five. Some of the
most prominent and influential citizens at
once entered a protest against the holding of
the elections, lhere was some demur, but
the whole thing was at last knocked in the
head. The ticket proposed by the Radicals
was as follows: Town Clerk, J. L. Barnfield. Se?
lectmen, Jos. Taylor, P. B. Nowell and Alex.
Wilhams. Constable, H. Slims. Surveyor,
Jos. Winsor. All of these are ne groes but
Winsor, and their character may be
judged by the fact that Taylor, one of their
number, declared that he;could not as a decent
colored man sit with them if he were elected.
Winsor is neither a negio, an Indian, nor a
coohe. Tho citizens will have fair notice when
the elections do come off, and will rout the
enemy as they were routed in Marion the other
Joe Crews, who had an altercation with "the
Governor " because Leslie, of Barnwell, was
appointed Land Commissioner, was offered an
office worth $2500 & year, if he would only shut
np. In reply he said that ho had already been
offered a place in Charleston " worth $3500 a
year and stealings," but even this was no com?
pensation for the loss of the land commission?
er-ship, which would have been worth to him,
he said, at least $20.000.
Under tho new county offices system it will
cost about ten thousand dollars to collect thc
taxes in Richland. Under the old regime it
cost about twenty-fivo hundred dollars.
The meeting ot tho Greenville and Columbia
Railroad Company, to be held to-morrow, is
likely to te a stormy ono. Charleston must
watch the Greenville Road.
The ladies' fair opened to-night. It was a

The resolutions of Mr. Aiken and Mr. Boin

were then referred to tho Commttteo on Reso?
Mr. Lawton staled that bc had recently boen
exploring I he immense phosphate bede ou the
Ashlev Uiver, upon which money was being
txpetidou by Northern ca litsiists. Tho de?
posits appeared to b? incxhartstjb'o, and ho

opposed to allowiu.1 the production of Cotton
to monopolize tmd divoi t tho attention of our
ocoplo fi om other ptir-uits. Ho had recen Li v
received an order from Eui ope for an arLiolo
which ho learned for the first time bad been
fonnd in North Carolina, md w.iich, it was
said, was designed to supurada the ordinary
white load so univcrsal.y used. He d' Pircd
to draw tho attention ol our peoplo to all tlirso
great resources ol thor Slate. Ho also de
tired that the people should avail themselves
of those privileges which fi od Almighty seems
to havo grunted, in so wonderful amount, tu
South Carolina. Ho allqd6<1 to the other nu?
merous inventions mado in S iWh Carolina be?
sides Bellinger's stoam plough, and among
thou the (ireilging machine which was now
being used ver?- generally at the North and

who stopped, not lom? ago, at Columbus. Ga.,
whoro he was shown one of the finest manu?
factories in thc South. They even, roamilac

A letter from General Lee w;.s shown, ackuowi .

look to something beyond cotton, aod change
their front. To get emigration they must give
genial employment to laborers, give them good
food, the potatoes, wheat flour, &c. to which
they bad been accustomed. Tho Euiopeaas
are not accustomed to corn bread.
Mr. Wallace said he did not wish to revivo
the old agricultural society. His opinion was
against it. There is an act of the Legislature
which imposes certain obligations upon all as?
sociations chartered by Hie State. He thought
it would he injurious to thom.
On motion of Governor Orr. Colonel John B.
Palmor, President of tho Vaucluse Manufac?
turing Company, was invited to give his views,
which he had prepared, relative to tho man u
lacture of cotton and cotton fabrics.
At the conclusion of tbe reading of thia
paper, the convention, after returning thanks
to Colonel Palmer for his able document, took
a recess to four o'clock.
Tho Convention reassembled al 4 P. M.,
President Hagood in the cnair.
General Gary submittod his report on the
resolutions of Messrs. Aiken and Boinest, and
stated that tho committee ascertained that the
charter of the old society expires in 1870. and
that on inquiry whether the society owned any
real estate, they found that it only exorcised a
permissive right from tho City Council of
Columbia so long as they used the ground set
apart to them for agricultural purposes.
Mr. Aiken read from the acts of 1855 and
1856, to show that tho charter of the old socie?
ty expires in August, 1869.
The report of the committee was then
I should heve announced that the Standing
Committee on Education was appointed on
motion of Mr. donison, of Pendleton, son-in
law of John C. Calhoun. He made a brief but
very eloquent speech on tho subject, saying
theie could bc no prosperity, no advance,
no civilization without education, and ho would
make a scientific education gradual bat obli?
Mr. Heneroy, of Charleston, also accompa?
nied his report with on earnest aud able speech.
He urged that tho people of tho State do not
fully appreciate the importance ot having their
work done at home. Tho habit of going
abroad is so strong that the planter seldom
takes tho troubla to inquire whether what he
wants can be done in charleston or any ocher
part of the State. As a consequence the me?
chanics are almost starving, and the money
spent amongst our opponents abroad. Lot
our people try them, and they will got tao best
machines, and ii not satisfactory, cm always
make the home manufacturer responsible. He
hoped this movement would awaken oar people
to the importance ot their mechanical imple?
ments being manufactured at home.
Mr. Henerey's remarks were loudly applaud?
ed. He was followed by Mr. Lawton, who
spoke in high terms of the service rendered
by the preceding speaker during the war, and
his manufacture of percussion caps, Ac.
THE CUBAN REVOLT.
Chances of Its Success-Contradictory
The news in regard to the prospects of tu j
Cuhau insurrection continues very conflicting.
From New York wa learn that the Cubans
thero aro in in high glee ovor tho news that
tho Mexican Congress has authorized President
Juarez to recognizo tho insurgents as bolJigo
reuts whenever ho may deem it judicious to
do so; also, that Mexican ports are to bo open
to the Caban flag. The immediate result of
this action, they say, will be the placing of
several privateers in commission to look after
Spanish morck .atmen in tho West Indies. On
the other hand, tho correspondent of the
tialily for the Spanish cause7*teTr^^pb^*7r?m
Washington under date of Monday night as
Thero is authority for stating that the Span?
ish envoy to this country esteems the rebellion
in Cuba as substantially at an end That this
is too s?ngame an anni uncement is generally
believed here, bul that serious reverses have
been suffered by the insurgents is admitted
and known. Mr. Roberts deel ires that within
sixty days there will not be a man in arms
against tho authorities, and that General Prim
will find the situation pacific on his arrival. It
seems that the Captain-Qenerol has bad about
thirty thousand men under arms, an i they aro
steadily advancing and repossessing the inte?
rior country. Tho legation here view the insur?
rection as concluded, and anticipate a proclama?
tion of clemency in a few days, whioh will se?
cure ?he adhesion of those who yet feebly hold
ont. On tho other band, tbe ogents of toe in?
surgents, while they are depressed, are cot
hopeless, and they give oat that substantial rea?
son exists to believe that the rebellion may yet
moro vigorously revive than ever, owing to
the tact that the conceded occupation ot the
interior ais trie ts by tho authorities will con
c ntrate the insurgent torces more effectively.
It ls now competent to state that an expedi?
tion has been in process of organization for
some time; that it bas offices in Philadelphia,
this city, and New York; that several hundred
men in the first and last cities have been en?
rolled, and that a regular regimental classifi?
cation bas been agreed apon-at least on pa
per-one of tho fighting McCook family being
stated to bo in command, that expedition
will or waa to depart from Charleston. What
complexion the present nowa will cast upon tho
enterprise cannot bo foretold. It is behoved,
ho .??ever, that it will delay it, and most proba?
bly disband it altogether. The great difficulty
the insurgents have experienced bas arisen
from three causes: Tho proporty men have
been a sainst them; they cannot bay arms, hav?
ing neither money Dor a market, and their
?mancipation burst has failed, the negroes pre?
ferring to romain at labor tuan muster into
