-There is a woman in Jollst with a lew em
. phatic ideas on the topies. which agitate the J
bosoms of a portion er her sex, and she talks in
this way: "I jost don't believe in these new wo?
men notions. I have, raised six boys-four or
them vote now, and the others wUl soon be old
?enough. Then I wilt nave six votes. Now these j
good-for-nothing women who have fooled their I
time away, and never raised a single boy, come
around and want every woman to vote for her?
self. I don't believe In such nonsense. I have
raised my six boys, and I am going to have every
one vote for me. Those women who go lecturing
around the country instead of raising boys, have
no business to vote anyway. And when they say
that they are Just as good asl am, and have a
right to vote themselves, ir they have no boya to
do so for thom, it ls not true, ir they are as smart
as I am, why did they not raise some boys to vote
for them r I tell yon, I do not Intend to be cheated
out or my six votes by any such good-for-nothing
folks. I guess that the world would come to a
pretty pass, in a mighty short time, If the women
all took to goln' around lecturing on wimmln's
rights, instead of raising boys." ?
-It ls about "neck and neck" between warlike
inventions for offence and those for defence.
Rifle guns abolished wooden ships, and plate
armor* opposed itself to the new cannon. But
\ captain Ericsson, wno, made the last and greatest
revelation In naval archttectur hen he invented
the monitor, now announce*, in the Army and
Navy Journal, that he bas perfected a system
or torpedo practice which can be nsed success?
fully to destroy the largest and strongest
iron-clad afloat. He offen to build and
equip one of hts torpedo boats, at bis own
expense, ir the British Admiralty will give
him. the privilege of one or two shots at the
great Iron-clad Devastation; or he will test his
Invention on any other crart worthy of his powder.
The great difficulty which Captain Ericsson claims
to have overcome ts that of getting the torpedo
under the vessel to be blown up. The manner
lu which he dojs this is to fix a delicately seda?
tive percussion cap in the end of an elongated
shell containing three hundred pounds or dynam?
ite, which he Ores from a fifteen Inch gun at such
an elevation as to strike the hull of the hostile
vessel beneath the water-line. Tho guu ls carried
1 tn oue of his turret boats. The Importance or
this Invention cannot be over estimated, and ir
lt realizes the claims or its Inventor, Captain
Ericsson may be called the great destructor of
"Won't Accept tho Situation."
The Horry Newe says very frankly that
the people of Horry "won't accept the situa
" tlon;" and it is very evident that the whole
county is in a bad way. And no wonder.
The white voters in Horry outnumber the
colored voters three to one. They have the
power in their own hands, and can tide
roughshod over the prostrate minority. They
have been taught that minorities have no
rights. Year after year they have seen the
Scott administration, hooting at respectabil?
ity and growing fat by pandering to vice.
No regard has been paid to intelligence or
wealth. The Scott administration, as the
representatives of a majority in numbers,
cared nota fig for tho white population,
their interests or their feelings. Why, then,
should not Horry-where the whites, within
the law, are omnipotent-accept the situa?
tion, and mete out as has been meted to the
masses of the people ?
But the people of Horry are straightfor?
ward and honest. They like to seo every
class protected by proper representation,
and have, of their own accord, given the col?
ored people a voice in the local affaire of the
county. Only the other day the white voters
elected a colored man one of the board of
Behool trustees of Horry Township, and the
person so elected was ono who sate in the
famous Reconstruction Convention.
Horry "won't accept the (Scott) situa
"tion." It does unto others aa it would be
done onto, and, by the votes of a white ma?
jority, elects a colored Republican to an im?
portant local office.
Jute for Gunny Cloth.
The Sooth has annually to import from the
antipodes the material with which to cover
her cotton crop and render it marketable,
and during this summer she will spend up?
wards of $7,000,000 for gunny cloth alone.
-Now, all of this large amount of money
could be.saved by the cultivation of jute,
and the manufacture of the cloth at borne.
Having this end in view, Hon. Horace Ca?
pron, Commissioner of Agriculture, has im?
ported a quantity of the seed of the jute
plant, and.some of ; iL may be had from him,
upon application. - "?
The jute will flourish anywhere south of
the 33d parallel of latitude, but is sensible
of cold. The seed should be planted about
the same time as corn, and tho plant. will
flower about the beginning of August, when
the tops should be cut off. A month later
the entire plant should be steeped in water
for a week, when the bark will Blip off. The
fibrous interior is then tied up in bundles of
about 75 Btalks each, and is ready for mar?
ket It finds a quick sale at the ports, and
is now quoted in New York at 7 cents per
The introduction of this new fibrous staple
is of great importance to the South, os lt
will render her independent of the world, ns
to her annual supply of bagging. If all the
jute required for her consumption was grown
and manufactured in ber own limits, her
'planters would obtain their bagging at about
ten or twelve cents per yard, and would not
be snbjected to the high prices consequent
upon a small supply on hand. Ia 1866, bag?
ging advanced to forty-three (43) cents per
yard ; and this summer the supply on hand,
and expected, is smaller than it was then,
and we have reason to anticipate an ad?
vance in price, perhaps even beyond that of
1866. . There are now thirty (30) jute mills
at work in this country, which will turn ont
for 1870 about 24,000 bales of gunny cloth;
and if the staple mentioned was grown in
the South, as it can bc, tho number of mills
I and amonnt of their product would soon be
increased sufficiently to supply all the bag?
ging needed by the South. Onr planters
will do well to obtain some of the seed and
give this new staple a fair trial. It may
prove of great benefit to the whole South.
The Blue Ridge Bonds.
The sections of the State Constitution cit?
ed by our Columbia correspondent, os pro?
hibiting the endorsement by the State of rail?
road bonds, are as follows:
"ARTICLE IX-SECTION 10. No scrip, certifi?
cate or other evidence of Stope indebtedness
shall be issued, except for the redemption of
stock, bonds or other evidenoes of Indebted?
ness previously issued, or for such debts as are
expressly authorized la this constitution.
"ARTICLE IX-SECTION n. Any debt con?
tracted by the Statu shall bo by loan on State
bonds, of amounts not less than fifty dollars
each, on interest, payable within twenty years
after the final passage of the law authorizing
such debt." * * * .*
The act to grant additional aid to tl^e
Blue Ridge Railroad Company in South
Carolina, approved September 15, 1868, de?
clares (section 2) that "the faith and the
"funds of the State of South Carolina be and
"the same are hereby pledged io secure tho
"punctual payment ot any contracts which
"shall be made by the Blue Ridge Railroad
"Company in South Carolina'' to an amount
not exceeding four millions of dollars.
We have no desire to hamper the opera?
tions of the Blue Ridge Railroad Company,
I bat if the guarantee by the State of the four
million dollars of Blue Ridge Railroad bonds
is indeed n constitutional, it is better for
all partie? '\at the truth be known at once.
IN one of the country districts a colored
man was arrested on a charge, made by his
sister, that lie had stolon four eggs. He
was committed to prison, but succeeded in
making his escape, by breaking out of the
prison where he was confined. Ve under?
stand that this crime against the peace and
dignity of the 5ta'.e w'?l ces . the taxpayers
sevtnty-fivi Collars! Pretty dear eggs!
The State tax on 430 acres of land, most?
ly unproductive, on Capers's Island, about
thirty miles, by water, from Charleston, i3
nearly ten times 04 much as it was fonr years
ago. In I860 the tax was $3; in 1867 the
tax was $9, and in 1SG8, (the Scott adminis?
tration,) the tax was $29 li). For the laBt
named year the* land was totally unproduc?
tive, not having been planted.
These ?gure3 are more potent thau big
speeches. A tax-burdened people cries out
for Retrenchment and Reform.
Thc Juno Convention.
The Marlon Star says: "We urge upon all
"good citizens opposed to our present cor
" rupt government to attend the meeting in
" their respective school districts on the 14th
"instant, and vote for four good honest
"men, irrespective of race, color or party, to
" attend the county meeting on the 25th. We
"would suggest, if possible, the election of
"two white and two colored men. Let us
"all, shoulder to shoulder, make one grand
"effort for the salvation of our State."
