HORRY COUNTS', June 4. ?
Noticing In your columns the strong Infor

onion of feeling among men of all parties and
races who desire to redeem the State from the
misrule and corruption which ls so rapidly
harrying it on to destruction, I thought your?
self and your readers would be pleased to learn
that even In this far-away corner of the State

On Monday evening, the 30th, there was a
parade of the Union League at this place, and
a torchlight procession, which was joined in
by a number of the prominent white citizens,
who were not members of the organization,
~ but who sympathized with the object of the de
' monstration, which was In favor of the elec?
tion of. our esteemed townsman, Captain
Thomas C. Dunn, to Congress in place of the
.notorious cadet-seller. Speeches were made
by several ot the citizens and responded to by
the president of the League. The utmost good
feelino^prevailed, and the occasion was one
which cannot fall to have a lasting Influence
.tor good upon the political relationship of the
two races in this Democratic county. It is
with pleasure I record the fact that here, in
Democratic Horry, the political equality of the
two races was fully and cordially recognized,
and the visible effect was that, at th.9 election
on the next day, every vote cast was for Cap?
tain Dunn, over fllty colored votes being poll?
ed, and not one for the disgraced Wbittemore.
Cannot Little River fairly claim to be the ban?
ner town, so far, In the Relorm movement?
Our citizens do not propose to let the good
work stop here. We shall labor to make this
a universal feeling In the county, and let our
example encourage and animate the patriotic
men of the State who are so nobly laboring In
the cause of the political brotherhood of the
races and the Reform of the State government.

The Infallibility Discussion.
ROME, June 5.
Yesterday, upon the demand of one hun
re,d and fifty of the Fathers of the Ocumeni
Council, the end of the discussion on the
chema de Trimatii et InfailibUitate was pro?
nounced. On Monday the discussion of the
^chapters will commence. The Ultramontanlsts
deny the report that it is their Intention to
withdraw from the Ocumenlcal Council after
the proclamation of the Infallibility dogma.
The deliberations of the Council have been in?
terrupted by thc Feast ol Gregory XVI, who
died on the 1st of June, 184G. The sessions
will be resumed, however, next Thursday. A
violent scene occurred in the Council, last
week, between Bishop Maret, the well-known
Galilean prelate, and Cardinal Billo, during
the discussion on the Infallibility question.
Bitter language was used and much excite?

Ferry presented the petition of Mr. Hatch,
who is imprisoned In San Domingo. He ac?
cuses General Babcock of having prolonged
his imprisonment in the Interests of thc San
Domingo treaty. Ferry said that Babcock was
unworthy of the oi?ce. Sumner thought that
Babcock should be cashiered. Chandler as?
serted that Hatch was a worthless, troublesome
scoundrel. Ferry said Hatch was a man of
honor and integrity, and he would take his
word as soon as he would Chandler's. After
a sharp debate, during which the Committee
on Foreign Relations was severely denounced
for its sluggishness regarding the rights of
American citizens who were abroad, the whole
matter was referred to a special committee.
The Judiciary Committee reported a bill to

THE INFAMOUS ZAND STSTEM.
Origin and Operation of the Ulster Cus?
tom-Tl it Effect of thc Gladstone Land
British statesmen, from Edmund Burke to
Benjamin Disraeli, eminent divines from Sid?
ney Smith to Sidney Godolphin Osborne, and
political economists from Adam Smith to John
Stuart Mill, have been equally emphatic in
their condemnation ofthat system of land ten?
ure so long tolerated In Ireland by the English
Government, which refuses the people the
right ol' self-rule, and takes upon itself the re?
sponsibility or legislating for them. . The
wretched condition of poverty and villanage
in which a barbarous land-code has kept the
people of Ireland finds no parallel in any civil?
ized country. It has been found necessary in
every other European nation to give the occu?
piers of the soil that fixed interest in it the
denial of which to the Irish peasant has been
the cause' of so much destitution, agrarian
crime, and disaffection toward the govern?
ment. It was brought about in France by the
revolution, effected in Italy during the reign
of the Emperor Leopold, and accomplished In
Prussia at the beginning of the present cen?
tury, by that radical change in her land laws
which has elevated the feudal serf to the sta?
tus of a peasant proprietor, and the experi?
ence of sixty year3 has shown how beneficial
to- Prussia have been those measures of re?
form ; for to their operation may be chiefly at- j
tributed her present proud position in the
family of nations.
LAND TENURE IN IRELAND.
Land is at present held In Ireland either on
leases for terms of twenty-one years and up?
ward, or at will from year to year. Tenants
who hold in the latter are ol course subject to
an advance of rent from time to time, or to
ejectment from their farms at the option of the
landlord, to carry out whose wishes regardless
or the consequences to the occupier, existing
laws afford peculiar facilities. The lands held
on lease do not probably exceed one-tenth of
the whole, and, therefore, however beneficial
such an arrangement may be, the effect ls not
very appreciable on the general state of the
country. Highly beneficial, leases undoubtedly
have proved, not only to the tenants, but also
to the landlords who have had the sagacity
and honesty to grant them. In support .ol' |
this view we have the statement, among oth?
ers, of Lord Portsmouth, who owns a property
in Wexford County, and who granted, several
years ago, leases for thirty-one years to his
tenants. "My rents," he says, "are punctually
paid; the occupants feel they have a security for
their industry; my estate ls greatly improved,
the farms are well cultivated, and the people
are contented, peaceful and prosperous."
Seeing that such are the results of granting
leases, why have not other landlords adopted
the custom much more generally than they
have done ? The truth is, they are blinded to
their own Interest by the love of arbitrary
power. They prefer to keep the tenants at
their mercy, obedient to theff^lctates in all
thlnrrs, but especially in the exercise ol' the
franchise, by holding over them, in Urrorem,
an advance of rent, or a notice of ejectment.
Tenancies-at-will may be divided into two
classes, the better to understand their nature
and operation; the lirst, held under the sanc?
tion of what bas been called Ulster Tenant
Right, and the second, held on estates in those
districts where that custom has never been
THE ULSTER CUSTOM-WHAT XT IS, AND HOW
The "Ulster Custom" was for a long lime re?
garded as having a common law force, or at
ieust a quasi-legal sanction. Such, however,
never was the met, and all efforts made to le?
galize lt have hitherto prove abortive. The
usage, as it name imports, has chiefly prevail-1
ed In Ulster, extending to at least four-tilths of |
that province, and is almost unknown In the
other three Irish provinces. The comparative
exemption ot that portion of Ireland from the
misery and starvation so prevalent In other
parts of the country, ls partly owing to its ope?
ration and partly to thc linen trade ol which
Ulster is the seat, and Belfast, its chief town,
the great emporium. What then is the nature
of this custom? How did it originate, and
how does lt differ from other tenures ? It ls
traceable to what has been called the ''Ulster
Plantations" in the reigns of Elizabeth and
James, and the subsequent grants of Cromwell,
under which rulers three-fourths of the Is?
land passed, by confiscation, from its origi?
nal- owners, and was parcelled out by the
conquerors among their favorites and
successful generals, under certain condi?
tions, for occupation by soldiers, colonists,
and natives well affected towards the govern?
ment, which prohibited the exaction of exor?
bitant rents, and established a sort ol' conjoint
proprietorship in the land between the tenants
and landlords. The tenante gradually ceased
to be cognizant of the original terms upon
which the landlord held under the crown,
while tho landlords permitted what has since
been known as "Ulster Tenant Bight" to
come into operation in their place. The dis?
tinctive feature between Urcat Britain and Ire?
land in land tenure consists in this: that In the
former country all houses erected aud substan?
tial improvements made on the farm belong
to the landlord, and have been paid fur by
him; whereas in Ireland the opposite ls the
case-they belong to the occupier, und have
been done at lils expense. The landlord, how?
ever, has hitherto hud it In his power to de?
fraud him ol' their value whenever he choose,
either by raising the rent to un exhorbitaut
amount," or by ejecting him iroui the land
without refunding him the outlay or givinj
any compensation for the Improvement.
THE PRACTICAL WOIIK.INU OK TUB SYSTEM.
The Ulster Tenant Hight prevented to a cer?
tain extent this evil, and hence the efforts
which tove been repeatedly made to prevent
the landlords from Infringing lt. and to get lt
legalized and extended to the other provinces.
It is a custom rather difficull lo define. Lord
Dullen n, himself an Irish landlord, and one.
indeed, who in his views ol'what would be Just I
toward the tenan#farmers, has shown himself |
far In advance of most of his order, says, "He
could much better tell what it is not, tkan
what it is." Its leading, idea, however,
amounts to this-that when trie tenant wishes,
he is permitted to sell to another the right ol'
occupation of the farm, together with the
houses and appurtenances belonging to it, and
usually receives for his good-will, as it is call?
ed, a sum varying i'rotn live to fifteen years'
purchase, or, in other words, from live to
litleen times th? amount of the anutial rent.
Thc price he gets is chiefly regulated by the
Character ol' the landlord for what is called
"harshness,'' or indulgence toward his tenan?
try, and his permission to sell must in all cases
be ?ought aud obtained. If the occupier, 'hen,
have confidence in Hie honesty ot his landlord,
he will further expend, it necessary, lu the
erection of more suitable houses and in perma?
nently improving the land, on the faith that
his rent (viii not be suddenly raised in conse?
quence of the enhanced value of the farm, and
that, when he chooses to sell, he will bc ac?
corded leave and will be reimbursed for his
outlay and original purchase money hy the
price lie may obtain. Still he ls merely a ten
aut on sufferance. He hus no guarantee
nguiust an increase ol rent, a notice to quit, or
the refusal ol permission to sell, and may be.
and not seldom has been, thrown, penniless on
the world at the caprice ol' his landlord.
EVICTIONS HT WHOLESALE.
Even wholesale evictions have not been un?
known In what, has been termed prosperous
Ulster. A landlord there a few years ago
cleaved a large portion or his estate in one
day, to make room ror Scotch sheep, which he
expected would realize more for him than the
amount ol' the rents he received. Several
hundreds of the tenants, old and young, were
left homeless, in the depth or winter, and
only saved from starvation by the efforts of a
committee which appealed to'the charitable at
home and iu other lands. Some ot them
found shelter in the workhouse. The cry of
their distress reached Hie Antipodes, and the
Australian colonists chartered a vessel which
conveyed many ol them to that distant
land. No facilities to sell were afforded
I hem. nor, Indeed, permission given.
This outrage on humanity was subse?
quently tnaue a subject of Parliamentary iu
quiry, and, although the law was powerless to
afford redress, it liad the effect *oi arousing
public indignation, and impressing on British
statesmen the necessity of regulating by fur?
ther legislation the arrangements between
landlord and tenant In Ireland. Matters have
been still worse in the other provinces where
liberty to sell has been rarely conceded, and
compensation by the landlord for beneficial
Improvements almost unknown. Whole dis?
tricts of country there have been depopulated
to give place to sheep and oxen. Some land?
lords have paid the passages of their tenants
to this country, where they landed in utter
destitution, while others left them to die by
the wayside, or seek a refuge In the work?
TENANTS TUE SLAVES OP THE LANDLORDS.
This power, possessed by the landlords over
the very lives ol the tenants, has been used to
make them the veriest slaves to their will, and
has tended to render the franchise conferred
on them a "mockery, a snare and a delusion.
The result has been that, so far as Parliament?
ary representatives are concerned, seldom
have any been elected lrom Ulster, where the
tenants have more to lose than in other pro?
vinces, except the nominees of the landlords.
Should the tenant-farmers appear Inclined to
support an opposition candidate, then the no?
tice to quit or the Intimation of a raise of rent
is brought into requisition if they refuse to
vote as their landlord bids them, however
contrary it be to their convictions; and this
in itself is a galling bondage, calculated to
debase and degrade. He and his posse corni
talus of bailiffs and understrappers take their
stand at the polls to be witnesses of |
the obedience or disobedience paid to
the ukase that has gone forth. What
have been the consequences of this state
of vassalage? The reduction, within little
more than twenty year9, of the population of
Ireland from upwards of 8,000,000 to little
more at present than 5,000,000, whereas it
should have been 12,000,000; the necessity for
the suppression of revolt by the suspension of
the habeas corpus, and the exercise of the
strong arm of the law; the exile and imprison?
ment of men who. ceasing to hope for redress
at the hands of the government of the Injus?
tice under which the people suffer, risked
their liberty and life lo sunder the connection
between Great Britain and Ireland; the tacit
sympathy with such efforts, however wild and
chimerical they may appear to us, and the
sullen discontent at the existing state of
things which pervades the masses of the peo?
ple, wMle the bullet or the dagger of the as?
sassin often finds it way to the heart of the op?
THE GLADSTONE LAND BILL.
The efforts of British ministers and Parlia?
ments to apply an adequate remedy to the Ini?
quities of "Irish landlordism" have hitherto
proved abortive. The measure, however. In?
troduced by the present Premier has Just
passed the House of Commons, and this, should
lt receive the sanction of the House of Lords,
as it doubtless will, is likely to go a great
length toward putting an end to landlord ra?
pacity and despotism! Its provisions regulate
all tenanclcs-at-wlll, and they are, as has been
already stated, by far the most numerous,
while thc "Ulster Custom" 13 recognized and
legalized, with the operations^ which it will
not, however, Interfere so long as landlords
and tenants are mutually satisfied; nor will it
disturb existing contracts or ieases, pro?
vided their conditions are not Incon?
sistent with the objects it has in view.
Its retrospective scope is however, its
essentially important feature. In all cases
where Hie landlord desires either to eject
thu tenant or Increase his rent, the latter
can claim compensation lor Improvements
made by himself or his predecessors fur
twenty years retrospectively, and foi* perma?
nent Improvements and buildings irrespective
ol' date, as weil as for,the injury he may sus?
tain by the loss of his farm: nil such matters
to be adjusted by an arbitrator mutually
chosen, or a court of law to be established for
adjudicating upon them. It further provides
for the purchase of his holding by the tenant.
giving him, under certain circumstances, fa?
cilities for doing so by means of a treasury
loan of two-thirds the requisite amount-a
clause in the bill which thus forms the nucleus
of a peasant proprietary. Its effect will, there?
fore, be to deprive the landlord of the power to
arbitrarily raise the rents, or unjustly Inter?
fere with the domestic coucerns or the religion
and politics of his tenants. If he wish to pos?
sess their land he must do so at the ex
Sense of his pocket; he cannot do so, as
e formerly did, at the sole cost of a notice to
quit, leaving the people to die by the wayside,
or starve In the workliouse. The funds' with
which, he must supply them will suffice to place
them, should they emigrate, in another coun?
try with fair prospects for the luture. Neither
will they be likely to carry with them that bit?
ter feeling ol hostility toward the British Gov?
ernment which has, up to this time, been so
characteristic of the Irish emigrant. This
measure will give security where uncertainty
existed, and establish order where lawlessness
prevailed. The landlord will find his powers
abridged In so far only a3 they were arbitrary
and unjust, and the tenant will feel himself
protected by the strong arm of the law iu the
enjoyment of the fruits ol' his Industry. Such
are some of the results anticipated lrom the
bill by Journalists and publicists who have
been the friends of the tenant-iarmers.

the Governor of the Palmetto State. The gen?
tleman says that Dr Scott was probably an
honest man while he was peddling patent med?
icines In Nevada, but that when he became a
politician he fell. Dr. Scott, as Governor of j
South Carolina, ls the chairman of an advisory
board, which approves the acts of a colored
commissioner, authorized by the Legislature
to buy decayed estates, with an appropriation
of several hundred thousand dollars, for the
purpose of subdividing them to be sold to poor
people who will cultivate the soil, and, produc?
ing crops, from time to time pay for the land
what lt may be valued at. The former incum?
bent of the office was a white politician nam?
ed Leslie, who, having had to resign and take
a position as State senator, when attacked
in the Legislature with the Inquiry as to what
he had done with the unaccounted for money
In his possession, deliberately replied "that no
investigation of his conduct would be pmdent.
because lt would certainly put the chairman of
the advisory board In serious trouble;" and
when Leslie was further threatened with an
Investigation, he stood .up in the Senate or?
South Carolina, and with a sneer on his coun?
tenance Inquired, addressing thc senators,
"Which or you will commence V And there
was no Investigation. The present commis?
sioner offered one of the most prominent law?
yers In South Carolina a part of the plunder or
the otflce ir he would be his security for the
faithful discharge of his duty. The plundering
is done by first getting an appropriation to
buy the decayed estates; then the owners of
those lands say they are worth, for example,
ten dollars an acre; the commissioner re?
ports favorably for the purchase ol* a tract of
lund at that rate; the advisory board ap?
proves of the purchase; but the owner or
the land receives perhaps not more than $5
?er acre. The politicians pocket the difference.
lils ls one of many apparently som'-charltable
schemes which are held up by those fraudulent
politicians in South Carolina and other South?
ern Stales, to make thc people ol the North be?
lieve that they are doing wonders for the bene?
fit of the negroes and poor whites. But In re?
ality they are burdening the people with taxes,
and stealing as much of those taxes os they
possibly can. They are not developing indus?
try among the negroes generally, out leading
them astray by awakening in their minds false
ideas of social life, by Iniquitously making
them believe that ir the whites are sufficiently
burdened with taxes, being unable to pay
these, their fine estates will come under the
auctioneer's hammer, and, being bought
for a trifle by the State, will be subdivided
and turned over to the negroes. The organi?
zation of picked men into exclusively colored
companies of militia in South Carolina ls a
measure which Is evidently fraught with a pre?
meditated desire to produce a serious conflict
between the whites and blacks, because Dr.
Scott, ol'Ohio, the Governor of South Carolina,
has said that a Northern white man ls not as
safe unprotected by military force In the State,
when the contrary ls the rad. provided the
white traveller is not an incendiary who tells
the negroes that they must not respect their
late masters, and ir these should Interfere
with them to burn their houses. The Gov?
ernor has two companies of United Stales reg?
ulars in Columbia, on the ground that the
State is not yet fully reconstructed. The truth
ls that the Governor is a very unworthy of?
ficial, and is misgoverning South Carolina.

evils-that is, the candidate who may be the

CHARLESTON, May 16,1868.
Mr. J. B. RUSSELL, one of our careful and intel?
ligent Pharmaceutists and Apothecaries, has sub?
mitted to my examination the formula for the
preparation of a Soothing Cordial prepared and
vended by him.
It affords me pleasure to express a favorable
opinion of its safe and efficient, adaptation to the
particular cases of the diseases of children, which)
lt is designed to relieve.
E. GEDDINGS, M. D.
Having had occasion to prescribe RUSSELL'?
Soothing Cordial In severe cases of Bowel Com?
plaints In children and delicate females, I have
been much pleased with its effects. I consider lt
a valuable medicine in all cases, In which it may
bc advisable to avoid the use of anodyne, and par?
ticularly for family use, as lt ls perfectly safe.
W. T. WRAGG, M. D.
CHARLESTON. S. C.. 1868.
I certify that I have most successfully used"
RUSSELL'S Soothing Cordial in the Summer Com?
plaints of infants. He has fully exhibited the in?
gredients of his remedy, and the tedious method
of preparation. I recognize the prescription
containing no anodyne whatever-as a most safe
and em carious one in bowel affections of children.
When much pain or restlessness attends the affec?
tion, doses of Paregoric can be added to the pre?
scribed doses of the Cordial according to the age
of the patient. Thc compound, though more
often, acts In an etllclent manner without any ad?
dition of anodyne.
W. M. FITCH, M. D.
CHARLESTON, S. C., 1868.
Dear Slr-I have used your Soothing Cordial for
Diarrhoea in teething children, and lind lt a very
excellent preparation. It has a great advantage
over most preparations of the kind in containing;
no Opium or Narcotic.
When these are required they can be added ut
proportions applicable to the case.
I therefore can recommend its use In the affec?
tions for which it is designed.
Respectfully yours, Ac,
T. L. OG1ER, M. D,
MOUNT PLEASANT, S. C., 1S6S.
Afr. J. B. Russell :
DEAR SIR-I have used your Soothing Cordial
for children extensively In my practice, and most
cheerfully testify to its merits. I have found lt,
without an exception, to accomplish all lt claims,
and cons; '.er it superior to anything in use for
children. ? . ,. ,
Its freedom from anodyne of any kind recom?
mends it as a perfectly safe preparation in the
hands of mortars and inexperienced nurses. "
