AID FOB FL AN TESS -A NEW BANKING SCEESIE.
Mr. W. 8. Hastie, of South Carolina, sub?
mitted the following :
Whereas, The disasters of war have destroy?
ed the banking capital of the South, and a? the
high rates of interest paid by the planters of J
the Souih and Southwest for loans of foreign
capital for the last three years h is swept away
the profit of those wn > bave made partial
crops, and almost ruined the planters on the
seacoast, whose crops have failed tor three
successive years; and as it ie an acknowledged
fact that no agriculturist can safely pay mere
than seven per cent per annum for loans de?
pendent upon tho chances of the products of
the eoil ; and wb?reas, in view ot oor large
national debt, if it is of vital importance to tbo
interests of the Cotted States that the produc?
tion of cotton tobacco, rice and sugar should
be stimulate 1, therefore, be it
Resolved, 1 hat the Finan oe Committee of the
convention prepai e a memorial to tbe Con&rress
of the United States for relief, and to submit
said memorial to this convention for its ap?
proval. The basia of the relief asked for to be
founded upon the hypothecation of tbe bonds
of the several Southern and Southwestern
States with tbe United States; said bonds of
the States bavmg twenty years to run and bear?
ing au interest of six per cent, per annum,
payable semi-annually, and receiving in lien
thereof the bonds of the United States bearing
six per cent, interest per annum, payable semi?
annually, and the bonds maturing at even time
with the State booda (twenty years.)

Congress may direct.

IMMIGRATION FROM Ar STRIA.
Mr. Hastie presented a long communication
[rou John A. Wagoner, Commissioner of Im
nigration for South Carolina, ia which that
rentleman expresses his belief that Baron
3eust, the enlightened Austrian Minister,
rould readily enter into arrangements to pro
note trade relations between that empire and
he southern States. He also recommends the
?tabliahment of a direct steamship lino be
ween Charleston and Trieste, the Austrian
jori on the Adriatic.
A communication from Commodore Ingra
itm was also referred to the saine committee,
a which that officer expresses bis opinion that

ing topics would be avoided, 'foe writer fears

be manly work from industry and thereat be
hamed into it by their neighbors, ..jd our
xoapenty is solved. Providence has supplied
ricoless gifts; let us use them by our labor
bat?s, mike capital, build railroads and levee

THE PACIFIC RAILROAD.
Tbe following ie the report made on Thurs?
ley by the Committee on the Southern Pacific
lailroai which was unanimously adopted amid
Resolved, That ia the opinion of this con?
entton the interests of the whole country, es?
pecially by taoee of tbe Southern St atoa, could
*e served* by a main trunk railroad line Crom
lao Diego, California, through Junction River,
tolerado, and along the Valley of the Gila,
oath of that river, to ?1 PASO, on thc Rio
fraude, and thence to a convenient central
oint near the thirty-second parallel of lati
? de east of the Brazos River, Texas, from
rhich feeder-roads ehonld lead from St. Louie,
'arro, Memphis, Vicksburg, New Orleans and
thar points, aU of which feeder-roads should
ave equal rights of connection with the maia
rank, with similar feeder-roads from San
"ran cisco aud other points on the Pacific coast,
ritb like equal rights of connection.
Resolved, That the President of thia conven- U
iou be requested to forward a copy of this re?
ola.ion to the President of the united States
nd to the vice-President and Speaker of the I
louse ot Repr?sentatives, with a request that 1
bey present the same to the two nouses of
The committee, which was composed of re
ireaentativea from seventeen States, including 11
bree members ot Congress, give the following
eaaonafor the report: First. It is the shortest.
?ne connecting the Gulf of Mexico and the 1
Talley of tbe Mississippi with the Pacific coast. 11
;econd. 'It is the line, of all those now unoocu
>ied, of the most easy grades, and permitting I ,
>r the cheapest coostructiou. Third. It passes 11
brough a less inhospitable and barreo :o in
i y, an J u ver more fertile and Hospitable lands
han any other unoccupied route proposed. I 1
'ourtb. The line ia touched by water trauspor
ation at three points, afford tn g the greatest fi?
xities for construction, consequently hastening
nd cbeapeaing euch construction. Fifth. The j
ne will open to the world the groat mineral rc -
ources o! Arizona and Sonora, and render *
lore valuable the stock-raising districts of
.exas, New Mexico and Nortuero Mexico, and
hus enjoy an unrivalled traffic-. Sixth. It I
rould inevitably attract numerous feeders 1
rom Mexico, and thus not only stimulate en
erprise there, but draw to our shipping ports F
greater portion of the bullion which now seeks c
lurope by hazardous conductas aod smug- \
ling vessels. Seventh. It would open a new
otton-growing area in Texas, New Moxie J ai d

elt now useless tor the lack of facilities for

rhich would be the feeders referred to have
ot only been projected, but arc already io ac?
ive course of construction without waiting for | I
overument subsidy or encouragement. Ninth
nd last thou ch not least. The construction of I i
bis lino more than all else beside would cu- | '
aurage what we feel to be the greatest necc-s
ity of the honr-emigration and direct trade
THE BLUE RIDGE RAILROAD.
Mr. G. H. Walter, of South Carolina, 6 ab?
utted the following, which was referred to the
ommittee 00 Railroads :
Whereas, The Blue Ridge Railroad, to con
eot Knox vine, Tennessee, with a point on the
freenvillo and Colombia Railroad, in the ??tate j
r South Carolina, by acts recently ratified, has
rovided for the endorsement of the booda of t
ae said company to the extent of four mi! 1 iona j
f dol?an; and whereas, by the completion of
ais road and the connection of Knoxville with
in:innati by rail, a continuous linc of railway
.om the great West to a Soutuern port on the | j
.tlantic, will thus be opened by tho shortest,
lost desirable and practicable route.
.Rejoiced, That in the opinion of this con- I,
eution it is eminently to the interest of1
outhern aod Southwestern States that the ? ,
Hue Ridge Railroad should be fit once i
ompleted, and wo cordially cominead this
ntorpriee ta tho people of thc Southwest.
Mr. Millett, of South Carolina, submitted
be following resolutions :
Whereas, This convention has aasf mbled to
evise means for developing the resources of j
ie South rn building the Southern Pacific
iailroad, in leveeing the Mississippi River,
and miking available the mineral treasures
of the Mississippi valley; and whereas, to ac?
complish these ends it is essential to increase
our labor; and to increase our labor immi?
gration from Europe must be had by means
of steamer5 of heavy draught and large ca?
pacity, plying directly between Southern ports
and Europe; be it therefore
Resolved, That in the opinion of thia Con?
vention the great harbor ot Port Boyal, on the
thirty-second parallel of latitude, is one of the
greatest ports of the South Atlantic coast, and
that the railroad lrom thai point to Augusta,
Georgia, should be completed as speedily as
Mr. Millett, in offering his ievolution, said
that in the Southern States they must have
immigration, and must put forth all their
efforts to procure it. In regard to direct trade
it had boen sf.id.lbat they ha 1 no Southern
port to compete witn New York where immi?
grants could land.
Within thc past tif teen years a great change
had taken place in regard to tuc vessels carry?
ing passengere across the Atlantic. Fifteen
years ago they had wooden ships, then they
got side-wheel steamers, but now there were
iron propellers. And out of ninety-five vessels
engaged in the ocean trade ta and from New
York, only two were side-wheels. The average
tonnage of the propellers was 2500, and few
were below that, and all or nearly all drew nine?
teen feet of water, and south of Cape Hatteras
they had no port tbat had over sixteen feet at
the bar. lu the State which be represented,
they had a port whero tho water was twenty
feet deep. He bad only to remark that in
South Carolina they had a harbor equal to New
York, and that harbor was Port Royal. [Ap?
Tho resolution was referred to the Commit
mittee on Immigration.
THE IMPOST TRADE.
Mr. William S. Hastie, of South Carolina, in?
troduced the following which was referred :
Wltereas, By act of Congress, passed March
28,1854, certain cities of the West and South?
west aro allowed to import goods in bond
through the Cities of Boston, New York, Phila?
delphia, Baltimore and New Orleans, entirely
ignoring Norfolk, Virginia, and Wilmington.
North Carolina, and limning Charleston ana
Savannah to three points-Knoxville, Nash?
ville and Memphis; and whereas, since the
passage of that law the Southern Atlantic
cities have ma Je extensive railroad connec?
tions with the West and Southwest.
Rejoiced, That the Committee on Direct Im?
portation be requested to frame a petition to
Congres-, asking that all ports of entry in the
United Stales be placed upon the same footing
as to the importation of goods in bond by in?
The Committee on Direct Trade with Europe
reported in favor of the formation of steam?
ship linea from South ern ports, which should
be encouraged by subscription. The eaid lines
should be patronized by planters and mer?
chants of the South, and approving the scheme
inaugurated between Norfolk and Liverpool at
the Norfolk Convention.
Dr. Linsey, of Alabama, presented a minori?
ty report, setting forth tho claims of Charles?
ton, New Orleans. Savannah aud Mobile, which
elicited along debate.
Hon. Mr. Buist, ol South Carolina, said he
behoved that they b td met for the purpose ot
disoussing tho beat means for developing the
groat interest of the country and building up
direct trade with Europe. He was satiadcd
with the two first resolutions, but the third
discriminated against Charleston and Mobile
and other pla 'ea. He wanted to know whetbe r
there was any use in this discrimination ? One
speaker said that the selection of Norfolk was
made at Norfolk and Bristol, when Georgia,
South Carolina, and North Carolina were not
Mr. Byrd, of Alabama. North Carolina was
Mr. Buist said be stood corrected, but they
of South Carolina had not one word to say
against Virginia, the birthplace of Washing?
ton. Madison, Monroe, and more recently the
birthplace of Stonewall, Jar.ksnp_[Land ?? h oar?
ing. J We will do nothing to injure her pros?
perity, but in this matter there ls great dis?
crimination-but one place is named. If thc
City of Charleston suffered much during the
war, she was now ready to take part in tbe
Seat work of renewing the South and bring
g back her old prosperity. They wanted to
Eet a farr chance. They bad already a line to
iverpool, which brought emigrants to all
parts of tho South, and with tbe Savannah
line would rapidly fill up South Carolina and
Seorgia. It was, therefore, unfair for the
committee and the convention to pass on the
resolution as it now stood.
THE NEXT CONVENTION.
A report in favor of holding another conven?
tion at Loenville, on the 12th of October next,
also tor a committee of one from each State, to
prepare a constitution a jd by-laws for the con?
vention, to be reported at the next meeting,
THREATENING TONE OF THE ENG?
LISH COMMENTS UPON SUMNERS
The London papers are still harping upon
Vir. Sumner's speech. Tb9 Timos says it is
Ame that Americans should understand that
England will resist such demands to the last
extremity. It says that "unless there be a ect
;led design to pick a quarrel with us, Mr. Sut?
ler's policy is too preposterous to be cnter
ained. The attempt to reawaken buried aui
nosUies is, indeed, little short of criminal; but
he extravagant misrepresentations found ne?
cessary for thc purpose afford us slight assur
tnces of the destined failure of the attempt, :
The Saturday Review warns the people of
he United States against the probable re?
mit of putting Mr. Sumner's views into action,
or "they will then understand that there is a
unit to the patience of Englishmen." Thc
Telegraph drains a cup of cold oomfort from
he fact that "American Alabamas are almost
>penly fitting out for Cuba at tho preciso mo
nent when tho Americans are demanding from
England damages to be counted by scores of
nilhons sterling for the depredations of a
iruiser which we perhaps even strained the
aw in. endeavoring to detain." Intelligent
?nglishmen are becoming seriously alarmed
it the condition of affairs between the two un?
ions. The Beehive publishes the following
Sm-The information respecting the proe
>ects of Luglish omigratiou, which I was re?
tested to procure, had neen collected to the
jest of my ability, and I was about to send it
or publication myour columns, but the speech
if Mr. Sumner bas bad so great an effect in re
riving American hostility to Euglaud, and thc
lontiuuance of friendly relations between the
wo countries appears at this moment to be in
luch peril, that I lear thc promoters and or
;anizera of English emigration cannot for the
>resent prudently turn their thong its in this
iircction. Judging from what I know ot thc
;eneral temper ol the American people, and
rom thc language respecting Mr. Sumner's
i poe cn which I hoar held in conversation, I
ibould say there would be no rupture; but, ut
he samo time, I hold myself prepared tor a
urn of affairs which would oblige English
eaidents to leave this country.
Yours, d c, GOLDWIN SirjXH.
Boston, April 18.
The Pall Mall Gazette, in its comments
ipon this letter, says thc time has pas 3cd for
guoriug or attempting to conciliate American
lostility. "Mr. Sumner's charges ought not
0 bo pass?d over, for a great State cannot af?
ford to lay asido its self-respect when dcabug
vithits equals." The article conludes with
idvising Lord Clarendon to use very firm lac
ruage to Mr. Motley on his arrival.

North, visited the meeting of bishops of the

if ter made a written reply, stating that they
lad no authority to negotiate for reuni?n, re
niuding the deputation that proposals to that
:nd had been mado bj the Church South some
reara ago and rejected, and complaining t hat
.he conduct if tbe Northern Church towards
:be Southern had since the war been such as
naturally to promote a state of feeling which
nade reunion impossible.

of his labors and disappointments in trying tc

' Wheat crops look linc generally, but may

many aie replanting. Oat crop looks thin au i
meagre. Irish and sweet potatoes look fine.

On Wednesday nght last week, York County
was visited by a severe storm of wind, ram and
bail. Much damage was done, principally
along a narrow belt of land, varying from half
a mile to t AO miles in width, beginning in the
southwestern portion of the caunty, and cross?
ing the Catawba River near Aiken's ferry,
which seems to have been the attack of the
main storm. All three of the elements did
their shaw ol' the injury. In some places thc
heavy rains, amounting almost to a flood,
washed away both crops and soil, leaving thc
land ruined lor pr?sent cultivation. Some bot?
tom lands bad thc iVcsbely ploughed soil swept
off, and u heavy deposit or sand left in its
place. Hill-side fiolds also suffered from this
washing procead, and io some iustancjs a good
deal of guano Was carried away with the soil.
The water courses were trenerally swolleu, and
bridges and mills sufl'.-red in consequence. In
other localities tbe wind was the principal
agent of destruction, together willi bail, which
wc hear frap in lumps as large as guinea eggs.
Wc have heard of several houses being blown
down or othcrwiso injured by tho gale, and
have seen trees which were either torn up by
tho roots or snapped in tivo a few feet lrom
tho ground. Tho crops ?long the main truck
Of thc eiorm were very seriously injured, wheat
iu particular, teing almost literally ruined.
Thc bridge over S.ony Fork, above Gordon's
mill, was washed away; also the dam and tbe
steps of tho mill-house, though tue house it
Belt was uninjured. The dam of Miller's mill,
on Allison Creek, was broken. 8anms' mill, at
Clay Hill, bod inanv ol the glass in the win?
dows broken, as did thc house ot Mrs. Watson,
near by. Thc gin-bouse of B. F. Briggs, Esq.,
was blown down, and some two hundred
DCundB of lint cotton was scattered for mile.
David Turner a house, near town, was blown
down, and some others, which we cannot now
recall. The following farms were among those
which stood the severest shock, and thc crops
on thom will have to be almost entirely re?
planted: W. B. Steel's, Wm. Choat's, A. D.

H. Neely's, Mrs. Neely's, James Choat's, Mrs.
M. J. Watpon's. David Watson's, J. W. Aiken's
and J. B. Tate's. The storm was also very
severe in Mecklenburg County, N. C., especial?

Speaking of tho business before tho Circuit
Court in Abbeville, tbe Press says: "The ju?
ries, in spite of adverse agencies and anticipa?
ted obstacles, aro fully up to the usual stand?
ard of Abbeville jurors. Of thu eighteen grand
juror** drawn, but twolvc wore served; the rest
being negroes could not be identified by their
registeren names. Hence there were no blacks
on the grand jury. Of the thirty one petit ju?
rors only ten wore served tor the same reason,
and of these three were negroes. On each of
the petit juries there was one negro. The
grand jury, it will be recollected, serves for tbe
whole year. Its foreman was Will iain A. Giles,
Esq. Of the petit junee, Mr. F. A. Connor
and J. R. Tarrant, Esq., were respectively
elected foremen. The new bills found by the
grand jury involved no cases of very aggrava?
ted character. No bills were given out against
those citizens of our district against whom
charges had been preferred of complicity in
tbe killing of Randolph. The Attorney-Gene?
ral, Chamberlain, it is said, was expected up
to attend to these cases, but did not come, and
we have our doubla whether bo ever will come.
Tho grand jury iguored the bill charging Dr.
M. C. Taggart, A. B. Kennedy and John
Brooks with the killing of a negro at White
Hall at the election last fall."

JWIHE VITAL STATISllCS OF THE
United States show that periodical fevers and acute
and chronic disorders ot the stomach and bowels
are among the most prominent and fatal diseases in
thia country. Disobedience to the lawa of health,
as regards die) ; the use of pernicious stimulants;
and the wear and tear of business excitement, and of |
"fast lifo" generally, hive much to do with the pre?
valence of these maladies in our cities; while in the
Weet, and especlallv in the newly opened districts,
they are chiefly due to malaria, unwholesome wa?
ter, and the exposure and pi ivation incident to life
in new settlements.
Now, lt is a fact that it is as possible ti protect
the human system against these maladies as to guard
life and property against tbe incursions of assassins
and thieves. Strengthen the vital organizion with

MJ3T SARATOGA "A' SPRING WA'lER.
Saratoga, in the Sta'e of New York, U one of the
most remarkable mineral reservoirs upon tbe surface
ol' the globe. Within an area of a mile in diameter
are some thirty mineral springs-no two of diem
alike. lu rome of the waters, Chloride of Sodium
predominates; in others, Iodine, Magnesia, Sulphur,
Chalybeate, kc. The beneficial effects of some of
these waters, as medicinal agents, are known
throughout the civilized wo ld. Probably one hun?
dred thou-and persons visit these Springs animal.y.
Many huudrcd thousand bottles of rho water are
transported and consumed in the variou? localities
of the country.
The SARATOGA "A" SPRING WATER is pro
bflbly the most eff.ctive mineral watpr found on
ci Iber continent. It will be observed that it has ten
per cent, greater mineral properties than the cele?
brated Congress Spring; four times that of Barten.
Baden of Austria; fi VJ times that cf Air Ia Chapelle
in Prussia; twice that of^ Vicky in France; nearly
three dines greater than tho renowned Seltzer of
Germany; and equally over the Spas of Bath, Eng.'
land, and EisEcngen in Bavaria.
The reputation of this waier is based upon ita
effects in diseases of the stomach, liver, hovels,
kidneys, and spleen, and acts witb wonderful bene?
fit in cases of Chronic Dyspepsia, Constipation,
Gravel, Gout, Scrofula, Cutaneous Affections, Gene
tal Lethargy, Soreness, and Prostration of the sys?
The value of mineral waters has been prized and
acknowledged by medical men since the earliest
civilization. A celnbrated authorty says: "The vir?
tues of mineral waters have been beet ehown in the
treatment ol obscure and chronic diseases."
