likely to solve Itself, without troubling philoso?

workmen from other party or the country can be
readily, And, as far as California ls concerned,,
.thankfully supplied wi tn out-fun h er importations.
The arrivals are now comparatively few and Tar
between, and new immigrants are so scattered
over the country and so quietly occupied that
their presence ls not generally felt. The last
steamer from China at San Francisco brought
only about-sixty tnnnigrants; and the number
now resident in California ls- less than 37,000. or
33 per cent, less than it was a year ago. Unem?
ployed immigrants have, many .or them,rcturu?d
to their native country; and Chinese companies
and agents, hitherto employed in promoting im?
migration, have advised th.'ir countrymen to stay
-The t'dinbursh University ha? declared it?eir
upon the matter or instructing women in medi?
cine. At the Easter competitive examination a
young wom.in won the scholarship, but the
faculty refused to grant it on the ground that, al?
though women arc entitled to tuition, the univer?
sity prizes belong to men exclusively. The pro?
fessor of chemistry, Mr. Cram Brown, was dis?
gusted at this action, and made au application to
the corporation to put young women en the same
footing as youc^r men. The professors of surgery
and anatomy appealed to the members of the
corporation not to do it, asserting that they ci'uld
not perfoiin their duiies decently when women
were In the lecture-rooai. Tho professor of surge?
ry declared that he would rather resign than
lecture to a mixed class. He read a memorial
from one hundred and sixty-one male students,
protesting against the admission of females to
the classes. But the professor of phislology re?
plied that he round no difficulties as suggested;
he could lecture to a mixed class as easily as to one
composed of male students exclusively; women
made the most expert dissectors, and in his
judgment they are by nature better fitted for sur?
geons than men. The women were In a fair way
to carry the day, when Dr. Christison, physician
In ordinary to the Queen, came to the rescue and
informed thc corporation and professors that th s
"highest lady tu the realm" had lmtruct?d him to
represent to them that she greatly disapproved of
women studying medicine. Professor Kurtis's re?
quest was voted down by a majority of one.
Thc Finance* of the State.
Thc report of the Comptroller-General of
the State for the year ending November 1,
1870, is printed at last, and we regret to
say that its financial statements will be
found as deceptive and disingenuous as the
statements for 1S69, which were fully ana?
lyzed and exposed during the Reform cam?
paign. "We do not charge the Comptroller
General with the deliberate purpose to mis?
lead taxpayers at home and capitalists
abroad. The official reports, properly
handled, snow their own discrepancies, and
do afford the mean3 of determining, approx?
imately at least, the financial condition of
the State. What we complain of is, that the
Comptroller-General, by ingenious arithmet?
ical conjuring, produces a false impression
upon the popular mind, and shows only a
moderate increase of debt, where the broad
facts point to an addition of millions. We
have no intere?t io. depreciating the credit of
the State. On the contrary, it is our desire
to fulfil the public obligations and pay every
farthing which is honestly due. But it i3
necessary that the truth should be known ;
and if the State officials remain tongue-tied,
becauso they are unwilling to make mortify,
ing disclosures, their evasion of a plain duty
will not relieve them from either responsi?
bility or blame.
The Comptroller-General, in his printed
report, (page 21) says that the funded debt
on the 31st October, 1870, amounted to
S7,665,90S 98, which figures agree with
those given by Governor Scott in his annual
message to the Legislature. We say, how?
ever, and are prepared to prove, that, ac?
cording to the official report of the Comp?
troller General himself, the funded debt of
the State is understated by at least two mil?
lion dollars. That is lo say, the Comp?
troller-General does not include, in his
'?statement of the public debt, November 1,
"1870," (page 71,) either the $1,000,000 of 7
per cont, bonds issued (page 31) for the
relief of the treasury, or the whole amount of
the 3800,000 of 6 per cent, bonds issued
(page 31) for the payment of interest ou the
public debt Nor clo we find, in the debt
statement, any record of the $700,000 of 6
per cent, bonds issued (page 35) for the land
commission. These sums-deducting $300,
000 o? the $800,000 of interest bonds, which
amount is reported-make np $2,200,080
which must be added to the statement of
the public debt as given by the Comptroller
General. It may be said, as was said
during the Reform canvass, that these
bonds are "signed up" and issued, but
are held as collaterals, and do not
form a part of the legitimate State debt. We
reply that the meagre reports of Mr. Bamp?
ton, the Financial Agent, show that he has
now in his possession only $1,500,000 of
State bonds, against $2,700,000 held by him
on the same day in I860. This is not all.
Tho accounts show that the State owes Mr.
Kimpton the sum of $880,843 95, representing '
monies advanced by him. That large sum
did not come oat of Mr. Kimpton's pocket,
and we have the right to assume that
$1,600,000 of State bonds were hypothe?
cated, and so remain, as security for the
loans negotiated by Mr. Kimpton for the
State. Sixty cents on the dollar is quite as
much as a New York banker would lend
upon South Carolina bonds, and, to that ex?
tent, these bonds are as much a liability as
if they had been sold outright. Indeed, Mr.
Kimpton must have to carry a heavy weight,
U3 he charges the enormous.sum of $94,977 42
for "exjienses, express charges, stamps, in
"(crest," Ac. Of the Land Commission
bonds, ($700,000,) we s<;e qo trace. They,
also, may be hypothecated, or worse.
Wo think that we have now fairly shown
that the Slate debt is, at least $9,865,908.
Adding to this the guarantee by the State of
S4,000,000 of bonus o? the Blue Ridge Rail?
road, we have a total liability (exclusive of
other guarantees) of no less than $13,865,
908, which is about the amount at which T.he
State debt was put down by this paper dur?
ing the Reform canvass. It is only neces?
sary to add that in 1869 the total funded
debt, as stated by the Cornptroller-Geueral,
was $6,183,349 17, and that in 1868 the
funded debt was ouly $5,407,306 27. In two
years the Radical party have added $8,000,
000 of whick toe have knowledge, to the lia?
bilities of the State.
THE Walhalla Courier cails attention to
the fact that, with :he present valuation of
property in the county, and the rate per cent,
likely to be levied, the County of Oconee
will have to pay taxes to the amount of
$25,000, or upwards. In the "bad days
of aristocratic rule" the tax of PickenB Dis?
trict never reached the sum of $10,000.
Oconee Couuty is but one-half of what was
Pickeus District, so that the present eco
nominal administration only levies live times
as much tax for all our Radical blessings
Land Temar? la ireland.
A case recently adjudicated ia the Boyal
Court at Dublin, illustrates very forcibly fhe
beneficent character of the new Irish Land
act. The Marquis of Waterford owns exten?
sive estates- ln~Sorjdcroderry. They were |
granted to a Beresford two hundred yearsago
when they wereonly of-a nominal value, and-|
have descended to the present owner with?
out any material improvements having been
made by the successive proprietors in the
two centuries. The land is cultivated by
yearly ei.ants, who have, nevertheless, en?
joyed the privilege of the Ulster custom,
which permits a retiring tenant to sell to the
incoming tenant and require from him com?
pensation for the improvements made by
himself and preceding tenants. This is vir?
tually a prohibition for the landlord against
any undue increase of rent, and security for
the tenant that ho will not be turned out
without compensation, while it enables him
practically to name his successor. Under
this custom the lands of the Marquis of
Waterford have descended from father to
son for generations, and the tenantry has
been almost as constant as if the holders
were the legal owners of their section of the
estate. But the Marquis now offers the es?
tate for sal?, a plan which he bas long in?
tended to carry out. There are nearly three
hundred holders and families upon it, and
of course every one of them is affected by
the sale. Under the old system the estate
would probably have brought near its ac?
tual value; as indicated by the possible rents
that might be required from it as improved
by the tenants. The purchaser might, if he
chose, disregard altogether the Ulster cus?
tom, which was not recognized by the law,
and put the rents at such a rate that neither
the present nor any future lenaHt? could ob?
tain more than the barest living from ?.je
land which they cultivated.
It is precisely here that the Irish land act
stepped in to secure the tenants their moral
rights. The Marquis advertised the estate
for sale. The tenants secured counsel and
applied to the court to require the proprie?
tor to state in his advertisement that they
were entitled to the privileges legally recog?
nized in the land act of last year as the
Ulster tenant right. The application was
combated by the counsel for the Marquis of
Waterford as involving a loss to himself. It
would be, it waa argued, a notification to
intending purchasers that the property was
not worth so much as it appeared to be.
The tenants contended that without such a
notice tho purchaser would pay such a price
that he could only obtain a fair return by
raising the rents. The judge denied the ap?
plication, and although the details of his
opinion have not reached us, we conclude
that the decision rested on the ground that
the land oct itself protected the tenants,
whatever might be the terms offered by the
seller and accepted by thc buyer, and that i
would be a dangerous precedent for tenants
to admit that the absence of a notice on the
advertisements of the existence of reserved
rights was fatal to their power of enforcing
those rights. The defeat of the tenants was
in this way their victory. The judge said
that he might make public the fact that the
tenants had reserved rights; but such a
course could not be necessary, and the
rights are more secure and in better hands
than they would bo if the decision had been
