FAIRMOUNT PLANTATION, BABITWELL COUNTY
July 7.-Tbe numerous correspondents of you
admirably oondnoted journal keep yon ao wei
informed .as to the condition, and prospecto
tbe crops of corn and cotton, I shall say bul
little about them. They look very well hen
at present and promise a fair yield, provided
the seasons continue to hold out,. and if we
eau prevent the negroes from stealing cotton
as mochas they did last jeir-first by bas<
ketfulls and then by whole bales-we shall
be able, perhaps, to gather a reasonable
amount, according to the number of acres
planted. It is too early, however, to predict
much with regir 1 to cotton, lt being liable to
so many contingencies between now and frost,
The cattle and bog crops deserve, I think,
more notice than they receive, and I wish to
direct particular attention to the subject of
stock miling-the destruction of cattle and
hogs by negroes.
It is well known that before the war, when
the negroes were under guardianship and con?
trol, cattle and hogs were raised in abundance
in South Carolina, and no planter or farmer
who managed properly, except in a few locali?
ties, ever bad to bay beef, motton or bacon;
and from the section of country where 1 reside,
tbe- surplus or cattle raised waB sent in droves
to the Charleston market. But since freedom
has given the negroes better opportunities for
stealing and gratifying their animal propensi?
ties, it is impossible, except in a few neighbor?
hoods, to raise even a tithe of what is needed
for home consomption. If the predatory hab?
its if the negroes did not keep constantly re?
ducing tbe stock, th-'r natural increase, in this
section, wonld in the course of a few years be
sufficient to supply the whole State; the price
of beet and pork would go aown so low that
any freedman, with ordinary industry, would
b9 able, with a pittance nf his wages, to buy at
the markets of the towns and villages all that
he would require. But the mass of that peo?
ple have not forecast enongb to take that view
of the muter, nor will they deny themselves
even if they aid; for with them the present is
everything, and they will kill the last cow or
bog to gratify their appetite, and that, too,
witb the most unmerciful And remorseless dis?
regard of the nght of meum and tuarn; taking
the last cow ot the poor, unoffending widow,
who depende upon the last of her stock tor the
scanty allowance of milk which she gets tor
ber little ones.
JIIlhone are annually lost to the Sooth that
might be saved by pioper legislation and con?
cert bf action on the part of the planters and
farmers. The Sooth is becoming every year
more dependent on the West ior necessary sop
plies, and tbe pork crop of the United States
does not now exceed what it was fifteen years
ago. The number of hogs killed and packed
m the West in 18 C-'57 was 2 534 77tl ; in 1868
'69 2 477 2 4 and yet .tbe natural increase in
the wants during that time must have been
fully 40 per cent. Population is gaining on
production. According to the oensus of 1860
we bad in boutu Carolina of hogs 965 779; now
we have but 4G8.373. and the negroes will keep
on reducing them unless they are prevented;
they are as bad on bogs as the beats in tbe
swamp-iu fajt, the two-legged bears are
worse than the four- egged ones.
If we want immigrants to come to our coun?
try we must have tho wherewith to feed them.
Let the planter? and f .rmci s then bo propel?
ed in their endeavors to raise, besides grain, an
abundance of r*att.e and hogs. Let pioper
lawB be enacted lor guarding against theft
and inflicting a severe and summary punish?
ment wheu tuoft is detected, bea mg in mind
tbo principle laid down by Blaek-tone, that
cri mi-s must be measured and dealt wilh ac
oordioe io their etTec d upoo sooietv and the
full measure of punishment moto I out that is
required lor their prevention. Let thc neg)o
knJT lus leg il rights, deal with him jus'lv,
honestly, firmly but, above all. convince him
that be shad not steal. Th9u will our State
oe rendered in a great meaburn, independont
of external supply. The cotton crop, atter de?
ducting for wages and the inten-Bt on capital,
will be net profit for fun her lovesiment. either
in commerc : and manufacturing or ia more la?
bor for making still larger crops, and with the
millions annu illy paid to tbe West for pork
and grain retained in the South, will give a new
impulse to every department of industry.
tu certain situations and under certain cir?
cumstances I admit it will bu best for individu?
al? and even wbole States lo purchase certain
suppl ii e. bot, as a general rule, that State will
be rno-i prosperous 'bat is least dependent
opon others-particularly for bread and meat.
Proper legislation and concert of action on
the part ol the planters and farmers of our
Staie con bring ahmt a nght condition ot
thmgs, aud the peace, prosperity and happi
ness of tbe community will bo enban.ed there?

TBE STATE TAXES.
THE TEMPER AND P?RPOSEC OF TBE PEOPLE,
Spirit of the Country Press.
The following extracts from articles in the
State papers on the subject of taxation justify
the anger of our people, while the; shi vor to
pieces the chief statements made by Governor
Scott in his last lons letter.
FAIinaLD ADVISES RESISTANCE.
The Wi nus boro' News advises tbe people "to
pay only such a portion of the tax as the
real raine of the property calls for, and carry
the question to the courts.'' It says farther:
There is not even the. appearance of justice
in the present manner of assessing the Taine
of property. The Board of Equalization oan
tax jost aa they see flt, if they CAD exercise aoy
each power, as they have presumed to do in
Orangebarg, as raising the assessment SOO per
cent. Under that decision tbe boase of a gen?
tleman returned by bim at 18000, and sorely
that is a high value, will bave to pay a tax on
$32,000. In Fairfield, land for wbicb the owners
have been anxious to get $4 an acre, has beeu
assessed by the County Auditor at $6, to which
50 per cent., or $3, bas been added by the State
Board of Equalization, making $9 per acre in
alL Is this justice? Another tract of land
belonging to the estate of N. Wrriolr, was re?
turned at $100, at which price it had been sold,
and wbicb those who are acquainted with the
naked old field say is mire than its real value,
bas been assessed at $300.
And just BO, there are thousands of honest
men who have made a fair return of their pro?
perty, who forsooth, are to be doubly and
tuply taxed, because suspected it ?B that
many others, impoverished by misrule and a
mongrel ?tate government, hive not returned
their property fairly. Kealst the injustice.
Ke'use' to pay. Trust to the future for a
SUMTER APPEALS TO THE COURTS.
In Sumter the feeling is very strong. The
News says : ' 4 "
But the question is as to the remedy. Should
this tax, based upon a fictitious assessment,
be quietly paid-without effort to mitigate
th i wrong? We answer emphatically in the
negative. Let this be qoietly paid, and it
would but be accepted as a license for the im?
position of yenmore unrighteous and excessive
We believe that the groper course was de?
termined upon, so far as the present ls con?
cerned, by the meetiog ot taxpayers Ott Mon?
day last at the courthouse. A committee was
appointed to wait upon the authorities, care
folly and truthfully to represent tbe facts,.and
ask an abatement. Should the committee fail,
however, in securing relief, then appeal to the
judiciary was determined upon. We believe
tb is to be the true course. The opinion has
been expressed-by legal gentlemen tbatf aider
existing authority, the present tax cannot bo
forcibly collected previous to Marah next, and
the farther opinion has been, with equal confi?
dence, expressed, that the decision of the ju?
diciary would be adverse to the legahty of the
- SPAETANBUEQ CLEARS FOB ACTION.
In Spartan burg there has been great excite?
ment. The Gazette Bbows tbe way that the
tax muddle works. It Baye:
Nowhere in the State, we believe, have the J
people yielded a more ready and obeerful oom-1
plianco with the ?banged state of affairs than
the people cit Spartanburg. Very few com
fhints were made with the assessments,
roperty generally was assessed at its market*
able value. For months our people ha v? been
preparing to meet the expected demands of
the County Treasurer. When it became known
that the State Board of Equalization Lad
doubled the assessment of real property, the
people cheerfully acquiesced in the decision,
and sought means to meet the additional de?
mand, what each bad to l>ay ng a matter of
?linpl? calculation. He Knew the amount of bis
real property and its assessea value ; he
knew the value of bis personal property which
he had returned under oath. With these data
the calculation was simple and the total amount
due was easily derived.With this amount in band
our farmers came to town in response to tile call
of the County Treasurer. At the Treasurer's
office, however, they found their calculations
all at fault; their real property had been not
only doubled, but m some instances quadru?
pled, while their personal property had myste
nouai y increased, in value since the r mode their
sworn returns. They to und themselves unex?
pectedly much batter off in this world's goods
than they previous') had any idea ot, though
unfortunately they were obliged to pay hand?
somely tor the pleasing discovery. For the
fiist few days much grumbling was heard upon
our streets, and payments made ander protest.
In almost every store a group of men could be
seen soliciting our merchants to go over their
calculations and see wherein the error lay.
Grumbling soon gave way to nghteena indigna?
tion, which threatened for a time to ter nina te J
in Bomethmg far mire serious. Wiser coon- '
sets, however, fortunately prevailed, aid now
our larger taxpayers aie withholding payment
until some satisfactory solution of the problem
can be given.
In the mountains the people are justly in?
dignant. The Walhalla Courier has an inter?
esting article on tbe subject of taxation, from
wbicb we take the following:
We show by facts the fair valuation of our
lands. The arable lands in Coonee were origi?
nally assessed at $9 uer acre, in Piokene $6 48,
in anderson at $6 29. in Greenville at $524, m
Spartanburg at $5 87, io Abbeville at $5 25, in
Laurens at $555. in Union at $341, and in
Newberry ct $5 84. Lo these lac s exhibit an
unfair valuation of the lands of our county ?
If eo every one must adm il that the valuation
is too high in Oconee, instead of too low. Will
a people who bave returned their arable land
above any of tbe nine adjoining counties be
likely to depreciate their Wild lands? Is the
doubling ot our lands under these circum?
stanced a fair and impartial equalization? We
challenge the State for s better record of ad
valorem re urns. Bat our average value is
below all these counties, Bays the And tor.
Lit as show why tbis ia tru?. 'Ibo proportion
of acres of arable laud in Pickens to the whole
number of acres is as one to seven, in Oconee
as one to twelve, in Anderson as one to five, in
Abbeville as one to tour, and so on. Again,
Oconee is the northwest county of
the State, bounded by and terminat?
ing in tho mountains in a northerly and
westerly direction. Three milos north of Wal
halla we utrike ibe mountains, and for a dis?
tance of fifteen to twenty miles in different
directions, tbcre is an unbroken succession of
rocky hills. An area of fifteen miles wide by
twenty miles long number a voting population
of lee's than 200 son 6. These are men, who
have settled lu tho little coves aloug tbe moun?
tain branches. The remainder of this large
area is useless except as ii woodland pustule,
and one tenth the amount would answer hil
tho purposes of thc settlers in that way. The
nood bas no maiketaolo value, and tbe soil is
too poor and broken for cultivation, lu Pick?
ety thc propnrtoo ol broken lauds is muc.i
less, there being about the sume quantity of
arable land in the two counties and thc same
poDulation. whilo m Oconeo th.-re are nearly
200,003 more actes of laud than in Pickene. lb
ute other counties thc surface is not so broken
aud tho eoil better. Three four:lis of our
county eau grow only om, while all tho
others except V okena grow cotton largely
ai d profitably. Conon is money, monc.v easy
of transportation, a d laud adapted to its
g-owih is more valuable.
We will explain one other point which may
have influenced iu some degree tbe action ot
the State Board. That is the hw figures at
which meadow or pasture land was valued.
Ii Oconee this was fifty-seven cents per acre.
The truth is there is not au acre of meadow
laud, sine ly speaking, in thc county. 'Tuc
as.-cssors put under that head ol j fields worn
out and washed. To tno Yankee mind, meadow
is a valuable class ul land.
From these tacts it is manifest that thc
State Board must have acted either from igno?
rai.ce or fraud, or both, in doubling cur
lands, and we are inclined.to thins from the
former. Io fact the letter of the btate Auditor
What is the rf medy ? Some suggest ibe
c Hirts, but if there be any other pracicaole
way to relief, we advise tbe people to adopt i'.
We suggest tbe fol owing, wuicb m ghi result

on the presentment of a petition properly
vouched and approved bj this Conntj Auditor,
and then let every one rest his case on its
merits. We believe if the Auditor bas not the
power, he should withhold th? collection of the
tax on the whole amou>.t added by tbe State
Board, and refer tbe matter with his reasons
to the next meeting of the Legislature for con?
firmation orrejeotior. It munt be best to try
Uga Ural, as we are satisfied the entire amount
added by the State Board is without justifica?
tion of law.
