Tne Consolidation Business.
' This paper had actively- opposed the Bill
?to promote the consolidation of the Green- ;
"Kile and Columbia Railroad- Company a,nd
??the Blue Ria^aSailrb^(^mpany,^better
known as the Consolidation Bill. Our main
Objections were that the Bill enables the
Green villa Bing to obtain possession of the
fqar million of Blue Ridge-bonds guaranteed
T?y the State ; that it allows those Bonds' to
be sold at any time and at any price ; that it ;
.deprives the State of its lien upon both, roads,
and, by permitting the Greenville road to
coiisnme the bonds of the Blue Ridge road,
mal:, the -completion of the last ?named
line practically impossible. The Bill, how?
ever, has become a law, aod? wo arejnvited
to present to the public the reasons why the j
measure was" supported by the L?gislature.
This we will-cheerfully do :
1. The Consolidation Bill does not consol?
idate the two roads, but merely authorizes
their consolidation upon certain conditions.
It is argued, therefore, that the stockholders
of the two companies will see to it that J
neither road is gobbled up by the other.
While at this stage we. may remark that "the
"stockholders" of the Greenville road are |
the Greenville Moggin -whose straightfor- j
ward integrity the people have very little
confidence. They nil! doubtless take care
Of their own interests ; but it is doubtful that
they will haye much regard for the welfare
of the Blue Ridge road. This last named
- road is virtually controlled by Governor]
Scott and Mayor Pillsbury, who represent
the stock of the Company held by the city
and State These officials' coo prevent the
Greenville Biog from obtaining control or
the Blue Bidge bonds, and we are informed
that this is their determination.
2. The object of. the management of the
Greenville road in asking to have the lien of
the .State-postponed is, that the Second
Mortgage bonds, now existing on the road,
and in the hands of the company, may be?
come First Mortgage bonds. With these
bonds it is proposed to pay off a past-due
debt, and to pay for the iron and equip?
ments necessary for putting tho line in iirst?
rafe condition. It is urged, moreover, that
the Greenville road, wheu properly ironed
and equipped, will not.only pay the interest
on its bonded debt, but will have a surplus
which can be used in paying the interest on
the Blue Bidge bonds while that road is in
process of construction.
3. The fact that the State had a statutory
. lien upon -the Bjhe Kidge road ?3 said "to have
been one of the difficulties' tn the way of ne?
gotiating the Blue Bidge bonds. The mort?
gage executed, and put on record, in the
-'several States through which 'the road runs,
was made to be a first mortgage on the prop?
erty Of the company, while .the aot authoriz?
ing the endorsement gave the State a first j
lien. Bat the purchasers of the bonds de?
sire that theirs shall be the drat claim on the
property of the company. They cannot eu
force their claim in the courts, as against
the State in any event, bat, if the company
foil, to pay, its merest, lire tandera-of ite
bonds, freed from the State lien, could in- ;
stitute proceedings against the corporation
and so satisfy their demands.- In .the opin?
ion of the friends of the Blue Bidge road* it
was, therefore, absolutely uecesaory to post-1
pone the State lien.
4. As to jjae"change iu "the law of 18G8,
which gives the Blue Bidge Company the
privilege of negotiating ?heir bonds at the
market price,-it is urged that tne provision
in the act of 1868 requiring "$3,000,000 of
the bonds lo be sold ut .par was a permanent
bar against the negotiation of the bonds
upon their merits. The law niigbt, however,
have been evaded by an arrangement of |
commissions, or by using the fourth million
of bonds to meet the actual loss upon the
remaining three millions negotiated nomi?
nally at par. The restriction did not, more
over, prevent the hypothecation of the bonds,
nor would it appear to prevent the bona fide
holders of such bonds from selling tbtrn
at any price if the money lent upon their
security was not punctually repaid.
5. Tho present management, of the Blue
Bidge road have for sometime advocated it?
consolidation with the Greenville road, us
the consolidation would give the companies ?
a working basia of two hundred miles of J
completed road. Thia should establish'a
confidence in the value of the security which
would . not be given to one based upon the
few miles of the Blue Ridge road now in
6. Any opposition te the Consolidation
Bill would have been futile, aa the friends of
the two companies, acting together, were
strong enough to overcome lt without difli
culty; the more especially as the scheme
was not regarded.as a party measure, but as
one of great momeat to all of upper South
These are, as clearly as we can state them,
the principal arguments in support of the
Consolidation Bill. We have given' both
sides of the question, and we leave the pub?
lic to form their own opini?n.*
Commissioner of Agriculture".
John Heart, Esq., has been confirmed by
the State Senate as Commissioner of Agri?
culture. Up to this time the office has. been
or little, if any, service to the State, but we
doubt not that the known ability and energy

Agriculture highly valuable to.the farmers

general public. The appointment is a good
one, and we are glad to see that it was
POEMS. By Lucy H. Hooper. Philadelphia :
J.' B. Lippi ucott & Co. Charleston : Pogar
tie's Book Depository.
These poem3 belong to a high order of |
vers de soci?t?, and as such they are deserv?
ing of honorable mention. The-author has
taste, feeling, fancy, and a cultivated judg?
ment ; her expression is vigorous and musi?
cal, and her sympathy with the superficial.
aspect1? of human emotion is ready and nat?
ural. In none of the poems included in this
I volume does she attempt to strike any of the
? higher or deeper, chords of passions-she
touches minor keys, add photographs tran?
sient phases of thought and feeling. But
ber touch is tender and delicate, and her
Verses have quite enough of the divine spirit
of truth and melody to insure their popu?
larity. She is not always original here
and there the inliueuce of stronger singers
can be traced in her verse ; but if there-is
nothing new under .the sun, the most ardent
Athenian must be content to' have the old
J. sometimes gracefrliy retold. Many of the
poems deserve f pedal mention ; but we
most eon ten t ourselves with quoting the fol?
lowing brief and vigorous lyric as a fair
specimen of the whole :
