the bill does not compel the company to ext ead
the road to the upper part of the island; that
the Arcade plan ls an experiment on which

well as I knew how-to fight. Mace outfought

that both coalda't win."
The St. Louis papers contain detailed ac?
counts of the horrible railroad slaughter on
'the Missouri Pacific Railroad, Thursday morn?
ing, which places the blame for the coll isioa
upoa the conductor of the freight train. He
-was authorized to use thirty minutes of the
express train's time, the latter bel?g late, but
exceeded lt, and was nianing, lt is said, forty
-?ve minutes on the time of the express, when
the crash occurred, trying to reach another
etatioo. The sceue at the wreck was frlghtiul.
.Cars were telescoped together, aud their in?
mates crushed aide by side in one indescribable
agony. Before the relief train reached the
spot, the citizens near by bad gathered, and,
directed by two doctors, had made good prog?
ress in removing the killed and wounded, and
cari ng for the latter. The bedding and mat?
tresses from the sleeping cars were brought
out for the wounded to rest 00, and Hat, cov?
erlets and quilts were liberally provided by the I
neighbors. The wounded were brought to St.
Louis and removed on stretchers to t .ie hospi?
tal, the immense crowd which had gathered
lending willing hands.
-The New York Foundling Hospital prom?
ises to bo one of the leading charities ot New
York, and, under the management of those
indefatigable workers, she Sisters of Charity,
must ultimately prove <-. success. Thirteen
foundlings were received by the asylum last
week, and cared for by thc Sisters. The reg?
ular visiting day is on Tuesday, when
the building is thronged with the cu?
rious and charitable, anxious to assist
or get a look at thc babies - generally
the latter. Many of thc first ladies ot' the city
and Brooklyn are associated with this divine
benevolence-rescuing Innocent babes from
misery and death-and are diligent, enthusias?
tic, and never-wearying laborers in the good
cause. On thc last visiting day but one, a
dead baby was, for the first time, seen by the
numerous visitors, although thi Sisters are fa?
miliar with the last quiet repose of the little
innocents. It was laid out in a neat, plain
dress of white muslin, the waxen face calm in
the purity of death, and the pale brow, slightly
shaded by a few thin baby locks that laid soft
on Its marble forehead, looked serene and
peaceful, as if no suffering had ever contracted
the pearl-like leatures. A pair of little hands
were meekly folded over its breast; the stiff
tiny fingers, loosely holding a dainty cluster
of snow-drops, seemed but a part of the little
corpse they so fittingly adorned.
The South and Free Trade.
The Philadelphia North American prints
an article from the V*'innsboro', S. C., Noes
upon the subject of cotton, manufactures.,
and accepts it as au indication that "the
" Southern mind is beginning to approach
" the idea of protective duties as more bene
" ficial than free trade, even to agricultural
" communities." The North American then
"It ls a little curious to notice how the South
Carolinian, with all his prejudice, comes really
to the very ground we have long defended.
He ls In favor of introducing manufactures
here rather than feeding them abroad. This
is the argument we have made time out of
mind. He alleges that there are peculiar ad?
vantages in this country for manufacturing,
that render it expedient and necessary. He
finds that as*the manufactures increase immi?
gration will do the same, and be of a better or?
der. He alleges that manufacturing is better
for a community than simple agriculture, and
anticipates a popular understanding of the
matter soon, and favorable action" following."
It ought to be unnecessary to point out to
the North American the wide difference be?
tween the Protection of which it is the
champion, and the Free Trade advocated by
our Winnsboro* namesake. The Winnsboro1
News urge-, the establishment of cotton man?
ufactories in the South because yarns and
coarse cloths can be manufactured more
cheaply in the Southern States than in the
North or West. And it said emphatically:
" If it were not true that we have a margin
" of profit of five cents on each pound in our
" favor over all the world in this branch of
" manufacturing, we would not urge it."
The establishment of cotton manufactories
in the South is urged and recommended, be?
cause, by that moans, the Southern people
will be able to boy cotton goods at a lower
price than that at which New England and
British yarns and cloths are selling. We
all appreciate the value of mills and facto?
ries in giving employment lo labor and ac?
tivity to capital, but "tho greatest good of
?' the greatest number" is the cardinal max?
im of Free Trade; and unless we could man?
ufacture cotton goods in the9 South so as to
sell them at a lower price than the New Eng?
land-made goods, we should not have a word
to say in favor of cotton manufactories in
We may add, for the information of the
North American, that we need no Protec?
tion in South Carolina. We can sell the
South Carolina yarns at the cost of the
Northern yarns and make a profit of five
cents a pound, and we have sold South Caro?
lina yarns in England so os to yield a net
profit Of FOUR AND A QUARTER CENTS a pOUIld.
This is profit enough. More than this, it is
a proof that our people, because of the ab?
sence of cotton mills iu the South, are losing
four or Ove cents a pound upon ali tho yams
they use. New England does need Protec?
tion, or the South in time will drive her
from her chosen field. Can it not. then, be
arranged, by a new constitutional amendment
or otherwise, to put a Protective duty of five
cents a pound on Southern yarns, so that
none of them shall be sold to the disadvan?
tage of Massachusetts and Rhode Island ?
What the South demands is Free Trade.
Give us our implements and our machinery,
our metals and tools, free of duty; throw
open to our people the markets of Europe;
and we will soon show the world how much
latent life and energy is possessed by S! ese
quiet people of the South.
How Is This for High ?
The Scott Riug deny that South Carolina
is heavily taxed Let us see.
The taxes levied upon the people of the
State last year were as follows:
For poll tax.$ 70,748
" State 14 . 1,263,259
?. County " . . 501,0117
The assessed value of all the real and per?
sonal property ft the State is as follows:
Personal " . 38,851,2?4
The State and C( un^.y tax last year was
more than ONE PER CENT, upon the assess?
ed value of alt the real and personal proper?
ty in the State.
Ttnyeaisago the entire State taxation
was $S07,000. This year the taxation is
more than double mat amount.
The total expenditures of the State (ex?
clusive of interest) were $154,800 in 1867,
and are $611,890 iu 1870.
The General Assembly costs $115,006 iu
The salaries (of Scott & Co.) amount to
$167,000, instead of $50,000.
The expenditures for thc fiscal year, end?
ing ' October 31, 1869, were estimated at
$244,000, but $363,000 was actually spent.
The current expenditures for State pur?
poses in 1869, (the second year of the Scott
Ring,) were $300,000 more than in (the first
year of the Scott 'ling) 1868.
The debt of the State is-supposing we
wipe out the $4,0?j0,000 of Blue Ridge bonds
-at least FOUR AND A HALE MILLIONS more
than it was in 1869.
And yet the Ring say that we are not tax?
ed, and that there is no urgent need of Re?
trenchment and Reform.
A Great Invention-The Separating Cot?
Thc newspapers of the Southwest bring ns
glowing-accounts of the performances of a
new cotton gin, which bas just been tested
in St Louis. The machine was invented
and patented five years ago, and was tried
near Memphis, in the winter of 1SG5-G6, but
was not fully competent to perform well all
it was claimed to do. Since then the inven?
tor has been engaged in perfecting it, and
the machine recently exhibited is the re?
sult ' By it tho labor of picking the cotton
from the bolls is said to be entirely dispens?
ed with; and it is now only necessary to
pluck "bolls, cotton and all," from the stalk.
Three or four bolls can be grasped at once
and toru away, and ia this crude state they
aro placed in the receiver of the machine,
which separates the cotton from the husks,
leaves, stem, dirt and sand, by running it
through the "picker" as fast as it is wanted
for "ginning." The planter merely sends,
his hands into the field, where they gather,
iu the most rapid maoner, all the matured
cotton, whether the bolls are open qr, not.
It is stored ia this state until a convenient
time for ruaniog through the rnachiae. It
is estimated that one hand cao pick one
thousand pounds of cotton ia the new way,
quicker than a person could pick one hun?
dred and fifty pounds after the old style. It
.is said that oa a plautatioa of 500 acres of
bottom land, a single machine will save, in
cotton and labor, from S7000 to $10,000 a
year. Besides taroing out a better article,
the new machine will extract at least fifteen
per ceut. more cotton than was saved under
the old process. The price will be about 50
per cent, more than the old apparatus; but
old gios caa be so changed us to be utilized
in conoectioa with the new invention. The
St Louis Tunes thinks it is impossible to
over-estimate the value of this improvement,
and says "enormous sums will be annually
" saved by it, to oar planters, in the way of
labor, and in the improvement of the qual
" ity and increase in the yield of cotton."
Arrangements have been made for placing
a large number of the machines oa the mar?
A Fat -Job.
The Darlington Democrat has unearthed
some ugly doings of the County Commission?
ers in connection with their award of the
contract for building the new courthouse.
There were fifteen bids, at prices ranging
from $13,000 to $19,862. Ten of the bids
were put in by men ijamed Marco, t e. seven
by Samuel Marco, one by Cornelius Marco,
an infant son of the seven-fold Samuel, one
by M. Marco & Co., and oae by M. Marco.
One of the seven-fold Samuels (who bid at
$1G,500) offered as sureties JACOB ASTOR !
and A. T. STEWART! One of the seven-fold
Samuel Marcos put in the lowest bid, S13,
000, and this bid was accepted, but at S17,
990 50-uearly five thousand dollars more
than the price at which this very person of?
fered to do the work. But Marco is "not to
" annoy the Board in any manner whatso
'ever, and take their checks for the same
1 as the work is received." Whether this
guarantee against annoyance is worth
$4990 50 the County Commissioners do not
deign to say. Marco promised besides to
give as sureties M. Marco (one more !) B.
Clements, Martin Harrall and Wesley Hur
rall. But he did not do it.
Upon the face of it, this is one of the worst
of the myriad schemes for wasting the iard
earned money of the people.
Darlington ought to be as a unit in the
cause of Retrenchment and Reform.
The Rally for Reform.
The citizens of Newberry will meet ut the
courthouse, on sales-day in June, to appoint
delegates to the.Reform Convention.
S. Marco, of Darlington, who offered to
build the new courthouse for $1(5,500, named
as his sureties Jacob Astor and A. T.*
Was this done with the consent of these
gent leinen ?
THE Darlington County Commissioners ro
I jected the responsible offer of two respecta?
ble colored mechanics to build the new
courthouse for $13,500, and gave the work
to S. Marco at $17,990 50. This shows a
very proper appreciation of the colored citi?
zen, doesn't it ?
