THE WORK OF THE LEGISLATURE.
Tactic-, of thc Railroad Ring.
[FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.)
COLUMBIA, February 23.
Probably tbe most disgraceful scene enacted
during the present se?slou of the Legislature oc?
curred tevday in the judiciary committee room,
where open house was kept by the railroad men,
and who therein resoned to the mo9t barefaced
measuns to obtain vote9 for the Greenville
swindle. It ls said that $200 was freely offered
for votes; Int your correspondent has been unable
to learn ol any special case where it was received.
But not only lc the committee room was this bar?
gaining carried on; the floor of rhe House was no:
a whit more sacred, and the affable smiles of the
lobbyists (who are all well known,) and the persua?
siveness of their glib tongues, were, judging from
various signs, not lost upon many. The friends
of the State were, however, not entirely Idle, as
will be seen by thc appendel cltcajar; which was
largely distributed among the members :

owned by Governor Boberr K. Scott, H. II. Kitnp

making twelve interests. These gentlemen have
never spent one dollar in building this road, hav?
ing acquired lt by purchase for a mere nominal
sum. Not one or them have taken one dollar
from their pockets to improve Its condition. Thc
State has already given to the road in loans
$1,500,000. These same gentlemen have created
a second mortgage of $l.50o,0j0, and issued the
same In bonds and divided them amongst ihem
se.ves. Finding these bonds worthless and
unsaleable, their road In a worn-out conti;
tion. they now com2 to the General As?
sembly, and, with" sublime impudence,
ask: r'rr3t, that they be allowed to create a bond,
based ou nothing. Second, that the faith and
credit of the State bc endorsed ou these worthless
bonds. Third, dist lhere shall be no Uralt to the
issue. Fourth nat they be a.lowed to buv and
own every railroad in the State orsouth Carolina:
and for every mile or road SJ bought ar built the
State must give her bonds at th? rate of ten
thousand dollars per mile, to be divided amongst
these poor and ueedy meu. Fifth, that they be
allowed to build auy and all such roads as the
combine! wisdom of these vastly experienced
railroad gentlemen may now or at any time
within ten years see flt. And lastly, by section 6
of their bill, knowing that the bonds that they
a?k to cieite are'and will be worthless-knowing
that the endorscuieut of railroads ls deemed un?
constitutional, and hence, void and null, and
lieu ce. asa matter of course, unsaleable, with an
impudence and cool assurance that has rarely
b- en equalled and never excelled, ask the Geaeral
Assembly no; only to grant, but to
compel, the treasurer* of the State,
at the request of these modest railroad
gent.emen. to take these worthless ami unconsti?
tutional uouds, and issue to them the bouds of
the state to an unlimited extent. Gentlemen,
are you prepared to vota away your birthright
for a mess of pottage ? Are you prepared togo
home td your constituants to receive the curses
that wlH await you on the passage of this bill, in?
famous m its Inception, infamous in its demanda,
carrying on its face the broad seal o'theft? Do
you suupose that the people o' the State will
allow such acts to go unpunished ?
Remember, that whoever votes for thia bill will
have his name recorded, so that he may be known
for all lime.

vernor, and Messrs. Chamberlain and Tom inson,

After roll MU the blil to facilitate the punish?
ment of crime was taken up and passed to a third
reading, as was also a joint resolution authori?
zing the publication of decisions of the Supreme
Court for the past three years. The bill to make
appropriations and to raise supplies for the fiscal
year commencing November 1, 1870, was then
taten up and discussed until half-pas: i o'clock,
when it was passed to a third reading. Various
amendments were otferc-d and some ot them wera
adopted, while others ware rejected. The most
prominent of those adopted was the striking out
of the constabulary and land commission appro?
priations. Over the twelve thousand dollars to
be appropriated for the payment of detectives ap?
pointed under the bill to facilitate the p ?ui-dimeut .
of crime, some sharp lilts were made during tue
debate. White offered as an- amendment that no

After the passage of the appropriation bill a
motion to adjourn was voted down by a majority,
who were evidently cocked and primed lor the
Greenville bill, but Bosemon was too quick for
them, and, by engineering, aucceded iu getting
the Senate biU to release the lien upou a lot owned
In Charleston by the South Carolina Institute, be?
fore the body ; and as soon as this was disposed
of the bill providing for the election of justices of
the peace was sprung on them, and pending the
discussion of this bill the House adjourned at
half-pa9t 5 o'clock P. M.
PROTEST OF THE SENATE.
The following resolution, introduced by Arnim,
was adopted without debate, and a copy thereof
transmitted to the treasurer :

The bill to sell the Stat* landa lu Barrington, at
$4 38 per aero, on which the committee on public
lands reported favorably, came up for second

admitted that huge swindles had been perpe?
trated in the purchase of lands, but denied hav?

upon the matter, to which Leslie responded,

BLl'E RIDGE RAILROAD SWINDLE.
The committee appointed to investigate the af?
fairs of the Blue Ridge Railroad submitted their
report to-day. It embodies tie testimony of
Governor Scott, General Harrison, H. H. Hlmplon,
and J. L. beagle. The Governor, in the course or
being questioned, evidently lost his temper. He
says, to the committee: "Do you suppose that If I
the Saviour came here with a bill ever so good, or
it was thought be>t to appoint a coramitt'.-e to in?
vestigate him he wouldn't be crucified if he did
not pay something to prevent lt ?" He thought
tlie road liad oeeu conducted os judiciously and
economically as possible. The committees ap?
pointed heretofore were merely bent on getting
something out of it. He had learned thut ?50o
had been demanded by one of the committees, for
each member, to make a report. He told General
Harrison he would see the Blue Ridge in perdition
before he paid it, out he (Harrison} differed with
him, and thought it was best to subsidize them,
as he feared otherwise efforts would be mader to
ruin the bonds, and nothing else could be done to
protect Mr. Steers. When the bill came up one of
thc members of the House said to one or the par?
ties, "That report can't go through until I get
$jjO." And he thought it was so with every bill.

The shores on approaching Samana Bay are

Thc commission and press correspondents were
delighted with the scene. Many had Dot seen a
tropical couutrv before, and thought thi3 a primi?
tive sort of paradise. They were much struck
with the dense forests of palms and or other
trees, and the richness of thc verdure. Only a
tent here and there could bc seen amid the
dense tropical foliage, and there was no sign of
cultivation, except in 9po*s of a few yards iu ex?

Soon after the anchor .'ell, neariy all wanted to
go ashore.- Tlie boats were soon lowered, and
the commission and correspondents went to thc
little village mentioned. The people, nearly all
colored, aud of many shades and types of the
colored races, appeared well please! to see the
visitors, but seemed Iracapable .of excitement.

In thc ship's cutter, with the special object or ex?
amining the reported coal minos near lhere. Hu

of lignite or tertiary brown coal, indicating bods
of considerable extent and faronvbly situated for
workingand for transportation to the gulf. Iledocs
no: regard lt as of any va tie fur ocean ste Miers,
but as likely to prove or some economical value to
ithis region as ruel ror local steamers on the gulf,

tives in case a railway should ever he laid along
the great valley. No oilier valuable minerals
have, so far, been discovered. All agrr-e that tue
soil is very rich and generally deep, even to the
t'ips of the hills or small mountain*. The bran

specimens new to them.
OPINION A BOLT 'JOBS."
Though there may be no jobs, as far as ouu. .
government officials ure concerned. In land spec?
ulations at the town and Inner ??av of Samana.
the lease of the little coaling Island and privileges
of the bay to thc United state? for ?i50,OJO a year
loo'K3 very much like a job. This ls aa enormous
sum of money for Buen property and
privileges. Fifty thousand dollars a year
would* be too much, and the Dominican
government probably would have beeb -glad
to nave got less. Others besides lUez, there ls
reas-on to snspect. have their hands In ?lils job.
flue year's rent of this lease ought to be enough
to buy up nearly all the land around the harbor.
A SPEECH BT FRED. DOUGLASS.
Fred. Douglas made a characteristic speech In
Hie little plaza yesterday to the denizens of Sa?
mana. Notice had been given two or three days
previously that he would speak. About one hun
drcd.and thirty people-men and children-were
there to listen to the colored orator, and about
half of them understood what he said. He talked
about the glory and greatness of the United
States, and dwelt especially on the deliverance of
the negroes from slavery. He asked them if they
had heard of Sumner, Abraham Lincoln-the
Moses of tlie negroes-or of other prominent
abolition and Radical leaders. Uc confessed the
people knew little or nothing of these lights of thc
world, and thought this fae: might hurt Mr.
Sumner's feelings should that distinguished sena?
tor ever know or it. In truth they do not know
much of thc world outside of their own neighbor?
ARRIVAL AT SAN DOMINGO.
Several of the party had been tllspatcltfri over?
land on ?lie20*.h to S.in Domingo, with dispatches
to 15?ez. and they arrived there, after a luxurious
drive.throogh tropical meadows and forests, on
?he 3l9t. The Tennessee anchored in the port of
San Domingo, three miles from shore, owing to
the- genera! b ulnesis of the' harbor, on the 2d in?
stant, after a thirty-five hours' rim from Samana
Bay. Sr. Domingo is a. qua'nMooklng, ancient
and dilapidated old town, containing seven or
eight thousand inhabitants. It is the oldest
place built by Europeans In America, lt ls much
like Panama and other old towns built by tht
Spaniards, except, perhaps, that lt is In a worse
condition of decay and lias a more perishing
blight resting upon lt. Tue very buildings" are
overgrown in many places with grass and shrubs.
Some ol' these buildings and large rnlus are pic?
turesque, as showing the architecture, state of
civilization, and colonial graudeur of Spalu sev?
eral centuries ago.
LABOR AND FOOD.
To a Northerner lt ts a mvstery how the natives
can live with so little work. All exertion is dis?
tasteful to them, and they mase one think of tho
man who was not lazy, but "born tired." In the
town there are several small stores, at which you
can purchase queer little loaves of bread, orange?,
bananas, Hm:*, mangoes, plantains, yams aud
tobacco. American, French and Spanish gold
and silver comprise thc little money lu circula?
tion. Verv good cigars, made of the native weed,
can be had for $15u per hundred or $12 per thou?
sand, and are the cheapest commodity lu this ex?
Nearly one-half thc men of the town are sol?
diers, and a large shanty seen as you land on the*
beach-watched by a crowd of idlers-is a guard?
house. They are all negroes, and mostly tal!,
well-formed, and caoable of enduring -fatigue.
They wear cheap blue chintz shirts and panta?
loons, no sleeves, and bright-colored cloths
wrapped abiut the head, and each carries a mus?
ket and a hideous long serpentine blade called a
machete, with an edge like a razor. One told ni?
he used it to cut his way through Hie underbrush,
but he looked as il he could put it to worse use.
Their clothing 13 wragged nu.1 patched, and such
accoutrements as they canv often bear the
Initials "L:. S.," and area part of those furnished
by our government for Hie lease of Sumana Bay.
They receive for a week's rations a bag co?tai u
lng only one very small loaf of bread.
WSile many live on the luscious fruits which
grow wild here in abundance in the woods, on
the peninsula there are several small larras. In
this part or the island are thc American settle?
ments of about three hundred negroes from tbe
''States," a3 our country ls called here, the result
of the colony sent by the American Colonization
Society in 1825. At that time San Domingo was
under the control 01 Hayti, and President Boyer
alotted about three caros (or nine acres) to each
family. Thev are satisfied, of course, with a
country yielding so much with so little exertion,
but complain of the frequency of war and de?
struction of property, and of tielng tbe heaviest
sufferers. A company of us visited some of TTTelr
ranches on the mountains, and were very cordial?
ly entertained and treated to oranges and cocoa
nnts. They live In the same wretched manner as
the natives. There were those among them who
had not seen a white face for'maay years, and as
ours passed for such-although they are burned
of a beautiful red, gradually deepening at the end
or the nose-they received us hospitably. One
old woman was so glad to see ns that she ran
after us a quarter of a mile, and breathlessly
urged us to take a token of her admiration In the
shape of three hen eggs, the last the poor creature
Such of these negroes as do not own ground
work for the small planters in the vicinity. The
price of labor was formerly about thirty cents per
day. but since annexa-lon has been talked of the
price has risen to one dollar, probably because of
the immigration and consequent increased de
mand for workmen.
THE ANNEXATION QUESTION.
One and all of those with whom I have spoken
-and I have "Interviewed" them very exten?
sively in this part of the country-express but
one sentiment upon the subject of the island's an
nexation to the Cnlteu States, namely, an earnest
and Arm conviction that their prosperity depends
upon having the protection of our government.
They all look forward with hope to the time when
our flag will float over them, and sav it will be the
only surety that their nnfortutate country is to be
no more disturbed by civil wars.
AN INTERVIEW WITH BAEZ.
. Yesterday morning was axed upon as thc pro?
per time for visiting President Baez, who had
sent word that he was at the service of his visit
tors, and at ll o'clock the President, acconipa
nled by the members or his Cabinet, entered the
saloon in the national palace to walt the arrival
of Hie commissioners. Mr. Wade being unwell
from a slight illness, lt was nearly one o'clock
before they arrived, accompanied by Mr. Secre?
tary Burton, Mr. Frederick Douglass and General
Slgel. They were severally presented to the
President and lils officials, after which Mr. Wade
read the following short address:
MR. WADE'S ADDRESS.
"Hr. President, wc have the honor to p ace In
your hands an autograph letter of the President
of the United States, which will explain to you
the object of our mission. Your Excellency-will
see that ir. is a mission of peace and good will.
'.We come under Instil uctlons from the Congress
of the Uulted States, and sanctioned by the Presi?
dent, to make sundry inquiries regarding the re?
public of which you are the Chief Magistrate.
These instructions explain themselves, we trust
that we shall be received as friends, and afforded
such simple facilities f. r thc prosecution or
our Inquiries as may be nects^ary. Receive,
sir, through us, the most cordial wishes of
the people or the United Slates for the peace aud
prosperity of the Dominican Republic."
Mr. White unstated lt into French, and the
President responded as follows, through tue me?
dium of Mr. Burton:
"1 am very glad to welcome the commission to
our country, and ara very happy that the United
States Government has thought proper to accede
to thc request of our people so far. We shall bc
pleased to ofler you every facility tn our reach.
We hope that on Investigating the feeling and
wishes of the citizens of Santo Domingo upon the
subject of annexation, you will make your search
thoroughly, and will examine both the friends and
foes or the measure."
The visitors were then conducted to seats, and
an Info, mal conversation ensued.
RICHNESS AND FERTILITY. *
A party who have arrived from 5amana. over?
land across the Island, report the most beautiful
and luxuriant vegetation and evidences of great
mineral wealth. They saw- mahogany, satin?
wood and lignumvitae in abundance. The latter,
which sometimes sell ot ?loo per ton, was used
ror firewood at oue place. A merchant here
showed me a handful or gold-washings, one piece
as large as allina bean, obtained from the bed or
tlic shallow Ilma river. It ls procured by tho na?
tives with thc rudest implements, aud sometimes
in one day three or lour ounces of pure metal are
uflered rer sale in the town at $14 in silver per
our.ee. There were also shown me pieces or verv
rich copper ore taken rrom an old abandoned
mine In the mountain* only a few miles rrom this
city. A number or Near York capitalists have
nowa corps rr geologists exploring the island,
and thete ls no doubt that the mineral riches or
this remarkable Uland will be eventually devel?

More Incendiai} Fu n,
The same paper has the following: On last Sat?
urday morning about three o'clock, thc barn of
Mr. Samuel Mccarrcr, near Bethany, was burned,
together willi all the provender it contained and
several calv.es. At the same time the smokehouse
of Mr. McCarter was broken open and a quan?
tity or meat stolen. The dwelling house was also
broken into, but nothing was taken so rar us dis?
covered at last accounts. We learn that several
negroes were arrested charged with these offen?
ces, but no evidence being produced against them
they w?re discharged.
On Sunday night last, about io o'clock, a straw
field, several hundred yards distant and in front
of the residence of Mr. A. L. Smith, about three
miles from this place, on the King's Mountain
Road, was fire :. About hair an hour arter the
discovery or Ure in the field, Mr. Smith's barns
and stabiea were also fired a:- d entirely consum?
ed, together with the hi?y, fodder, ?c., which
they contained. A horse and a mule which were
In the stable when lt was fired escaped without
Injury. Mr. Smith being suspicious that the straw
JU tue field was fLed to atuuet hts attention irom
the barn, was engaged th watching the latter,
and had only left lt for about teu minutes to ou
serve the progress of the fire in the field, when tie
barn was discovered to be on fire.
Another fire, the work or an Incendiary, occur?
red about 4 o'clock, on Wednesday morning last,
on the premlsc3 or the Misses Alcorn, two maiden
ladles living alone about seven miles northeast or
town. Fire was set to the corn crib, which com-,
muiilcated to the kitchen, and thence to the
il welling, destroying every building on the place,
as well as nearly aU thc rurniiure and oilier prop?
erty belonging to the ladles.
Tm: BLACK CONGRESSMAN.-The Chronicle, !
of Charlestown, Massachusetts, gives the rollow?
ing sketch or Robert 13. Elliott, member of the
Forty-second Congress for the Third District or
South Carolina. The Chronicle ts' mistaken in
saying that Elliott has already taken his seat,
as his terra does not begin till the 4th of March
next. Elliott was admitted to the iloor of thc
House recently, as are other members elect who
visit Washington. Trie Chronicle says:
Robert B. Elliott, the colored United States
representative from the Columbia District of South
Carolina, who took his seat in the nouse on Tues?
day, three years ago was employed in this city as
a type-setter. At that time ihe lived at the West
End, In Boston, where he established quite a pop?
ularity among men of his own color during the
few months he was there, and was a prominent
member of a then existing colored literary sod- '
etv. During his stay in Boston he married a
handsome and intelligent mulatto girl. Leaving
Boston, he went to" charleston, S. C., where he be?
came one of the editors of a Republican pu per
published by colored men. Mr. Elliott is about
30 years of age, and appears to be a full-blooded
African. He was born and educated in Liverpool,
England, where he also learned the printers'
trade. He has travelled considerably, and has
served in the English navy. His education ls
quite complete, he possessing a good knowledge
or classical literature, and speaking and writing
the English. Latin, French and Spanish lan?
guages. He has the reputation or being the ablest
colored orator in tile South. . ,
THE-CALIFORNIA EXPERIMENT IN TEA CCL
TURE.-The San Francisco Bulletin, or thc 13th In?
stant, supplies the rollowing latest Information
on this subject :
Several thousaml'tea plants were received here
last year rrom Japan, and after lying In store for
some time were set out In a plantation on Mr.
Brannan's estate, at Callstoga. The plants had
been so long out of their native earth, and were
In such condition when received at Callstoga that
lt was doubted whether any of them would live.
About ten or fifteen per cent., however, put forth
leaves, ?nd will probably grow in rime into re?
spectable tea shrubs, though not al present In a
very thrirty condition. At the same time a quan?
tity of Japanese tea aeed was received and plant?
ed out in the same locality. The seeds all germi?
nated, and the young plants appear so thrifty
thai no doubt is now entertained or the success
or the experiment, and Mr. Perkins, who has the
matter in charge, having recently received from
Eugene M. Van Reed, of Kanagawa, a fresh sup?
ply or several hundred pounds or seed, ls now en?
gaged In planting them, Mr. Brannan having re?
newed Ms lease and made arrangements ror
starting a tea plantation on an extensive scale.
We are nut without hope that California tea may
In a few years become a staple article in the mar?
kets or the United States, and ultimately rank In
Importance with our grata crops, and the pro?
ducts of our vineyards and orchards.
