All the officials of the State intimate a will?

TBE TAXPAYERS' CONVENTION.
Vlevrs of Governor Seo?.
In reply to a letter from a number of the
business men ot Columbia soliciting his views
on the Taxpayers' Convention, Governor Scott
COLUMBIA, May fi, 1871.
Gentlemen-I have the honor to acknowl?
edge the receipt ot your communication of this
date, in which, referring to the Convention of
Taxpayers to assemble in this city on the 9th
instant, "to take into consideration the de?
railed condition of the finances of the State,"
you luvite me to express my opinions on the
subject. I concur with you "most heartily in
tiie hope that the convention will be successful
in -devising mean? for the redemption of the
Side from ber financial embarrassments, and
placing her in the position she has heretofore
occupied-unbounded in resources, exalted in
credit and unsullied in reputation." The im?
portance of this convention is eonceded by
every thoughtful man, aa lt springs Irom a gen?
eral belie! on the part of the taxpayers -that
there has been a great mal-adralnlstration In
the finances of the State, tending to an unnec?
essary and unwarranted increase of the public
debt,"aud thereby adding largely to the bur?
den of taxation. If this convention assem?
bles, as I believe it will, with a determination
to develop the truth or falsify of these rumors,
unswayed by political partisanship, they will
accomplish much good by pointing out any
evils that may exist in this- particular, and
suggesting a proper and prompt corrective, or,
if Hie result of their Investigation justifies it,
by relieving those upon whom the bur?
den of taxation falls heaviest, of the.wide
spread distrust of the financial management of
the State, which has gained currency among
the people. This course on the part ot the
convention will lay a sure foundation for all
needed reforms, and tend to inspire confidence
both at home and abroad. The important sub?
jects of finance and the State debt, and of as?
sessments and taxation, which will be consid?
ered by this convention, engaged my early at?
tention upon my inauguration in 16G8, and io
my first message to the General Assembly I
urged that they should give to these vital mut?
ters their most careful consideration, and IJ
deem the following extracts from that message
Bot inappropriate now :
"The financial condition of Hie State will doubt?
less engase your early and most serious attention,
and the necessary ways and means b: provided

ews of the State tn peace and war. The obligation
of the >taii:, therefore, to meet all of its llabill?es
ls founded alike upon correct moral principle and
sonnd public policy. iMs obligation should be
the more sensibly felt, from the fact that a State
caunot, like an individual, become the subject of
coercive process to Compel lt to meet its just -in?
debtedness, bat the creditor ma3t rely solely Opon
In regard to taxation and assessments, that
message contains tpe fellowing:
"There ls no problem that cun cigage the at?
tention of the legislator, more difficult ttnyi the
framing of an equitable system of taxation.
Even lu the most prosperous commnnites, the
laws ; lui: exact from the citizen a portion or hts
means to support the government that prote ts
his life and property, are viewed with extreme
m nail ?veness. Especially ls this Hie case in a
society such asimis, wuere values of tverv kind

In this connection I would now add, that If
the credit of a Commonwealth is to be the
mere creature of party success, then, indeed,
has the public creditor but a slight guarantee
for the Safety of Iiis investment. Such a theory,
I feel assured, will neet with no sanction by
While it is my sworn duty as Chief Execu?
tive ol the State, to take care that the Com?
monwealth suffers no harm, cither by the
enactment of/unjust laws or the mal-adminis
tration of its finances, my private interests as
a taxpayer also impel me to co-operate in any
measure that will lighten the taxes, reduce
the expenditure ot public moneys, ami at Hie
same time preserve the public credit. As you
have invited my opinion, I would venture to
suggest that a committee of your convention
cal! upon the officers charged with the care of
th" public moneys, for an exhibit o? their
books and all olhclul records relating tb the
State debt, and the receipts and disbursements
o*the funds committed to their custody dur?
ing their administration of thPir respective
departments. I trust that these officers will
cheerfully irire tho committee access to all
sources of inlormation without reserve, and
aid them in person lo arrive at a correct con?
clusion: aud u it were deemed expedient lor
this committee to extend Its researches to the
financial agency in New York. I will render
any aid within my power to lacllitale the ob?
ject of such examination, believing, as I do.
that tiie more complete the investigation, the
more beneficial will be Hie result in satisfying
the taxpayers, and the public creditors, that
any existing distrust of the healthy condition
ot our finances has arisen from a wont of in?
formation on thc one hand and Of misrepre?
sentation oa the other.
1 do not wish to be understood a? intimating
that there has been no extravagance lo the
expenditure of the public moneys,*or no im?
provident iRrisIation. Tht-se evils have exist?
ed, and demand correction. Tue first and
most natural remedy for these evils would be
to secure for the State Hie services of citizens
whose experience and personal character
would burnish a guarantee tor wise legislation,
and a judicious expenditure ol the public
louds. Events in this State for the past three
yeara have not been propitious to secure the
services of that cla?s of our citizens. Whatever
plan may tend to the achievement of this de?
sirable end, in any manner consistent with our
system ol' free government, will deserve the
earliest attention and support of the General
I may be pardoned for Hms even casually
alluding to the political situation, as this musl
be recognized in the application of any practi?
cal remedy for the deranged condition of our
finances, either real or supposed.
Yet," even with tho most economical and
provident administration of the affair of the
State, it would be impossible to reduce public
expenditures to the anti-war standard. The
basis 01* our government ls essentially chang?
ed. At present we have more than double tile
population to be provided for by law than for
? merly, and sharing In and directly subject to
' the civil adminisi ration,' and the expenditure
must be, therefore, absolutely greater.
So iar as that expenditure nas been unneces?
sarily or disproportionately increased, it
should be corrected, and this is the true finan?
cial problem. Any action thanh*} convention,
rising above the "spirit of the partisan, asl
trust it will) may take, iu the interest ol'the
whole people, to solve this problem, should re?
ceive the cordial support of all good citizens,
and shall, most assuredly, have mine.
Permit me to add, in conclusion, that the dis?
turbed condition of the country, resulting in
violence, and in many instances murder,
tends to demoralize every department of In?
dustry, and seriously checks the advancement
otthe material interests ol'the State. I trust that
this convention may give some public expres?
sion of decided condemnation ol this lawless?
ness. While I do not believe that the gentle?
men composing that convention can. by any
expression ol theirs, control the action of in?
dividuals or combinations that endanger lile
and property, yet I am sure that, as represent?
ative ineu from every section ol the State,
their denunciation of all disturbers ot the
public peace will do much to unite all good
citizens lu an active effort for the maintenance
of law and order.
I am, gentlemen, very respectfully, you:
obedient servant, ROBEKT K. SCOTT.

ALL ABOUT THF STATE.
The ".\eowee Courier (Walhalla) speaks dole?
fully o;.' the prospect of the wheat crop, rust
having made its appearance pretty generally.
The young corn and cotton looks promising,
and tbe fruit crop is pronounced uninjured so
far; that is, If the cold snap on Saturday night
will haye done no harm.
Speaking of the weather and the crops, the
Union Times says: "We are enjoying fine
growing seasons for all crops. Corn is looking
6trong and healthy. Cotton that was up when
the cold weather two weeks ago came, is
much injured, and many have concluded to
plough lt up and plant corn it its stead. We
were pleased to learn irom a number of plant?
ers, on Monday last, that the wheat crop gene?
rally looks fine, and promises a large yield.
There is a much larger area of land devoted to
the cereals ibis year than .for years before.
This is good policy."

A MURDERESS CONVICTED.
CLOSE OF THE FAIR-CRITIENDEN
TRIAL IN CALIFORNIA.
Inc dents Before and After thc Verdict
Appearance of thc Prisoner- T li e
Manner in which the Jury Conducted
;From tire Sao Francisco Chronicle.]
Laura D. Fair, the prisoner, was a'tended by
lier mother, Mrs. Lane, who sat on her riirbt,
and her daughter on her left. Alter Judge
Dwindle appeared, the jury was called and
Jouud present, and Mr. Byrne addressed the
jury. Mrs. Fair theu resumed her half-recum?
bent position-, closed her eyes, and remained
apparently entirely unconscious of the district
MRS. FAIR'S LITTLE GIRI..
The daughter acted precisely as it might be
expected a~h unsophisticated child would act.
She seemed entirely oblivious of anything that
transpired, and occupied herself in chewing
gum, and regarding alternately the judge, the
jury and the spectators.
MKS. LANE, THE MOTHER
of the prisoner, was perfectly composed
throughout. To all intents and purposes she
was a spectator, taning less interest in the
proceedi. gs than did the strong-minded wo?
man who were seated behind her. At 12.45 P.
M. the coiirt announced the usual recess until
2 o'clock P. M.
DURING THE RECESS
Mrs. Fair, her motlier and daughter partook of
lunch brdught by a waiter from a neighboring
restaurant. Mrs. Fair seemed lo be in excel?
lent spirits, and occupied herselt in pleasant
converse with her. little daughter, frequently
consulting with lier counsel, who appeared
hopeful of a favorable result. When the court
resumed its session, the prisoner resumed her
semi-recumbent position and made no further
movement. The Judge commenced his charge
al Jive minutes before 3 o'clock und concluded
exactly at twenty-five minutes after 3 o'clock.
Those who anticipated a long deliberation in
the jury-room, and made their calculations ac?
cordingly, were disappointed. The jury retir?
ed at 3.25 P. M. At rive minutes after i P. M.,
or lorty minutes after they had retired, the
Jury came Into court and took their seats in
the jury box. They were precoded by Mr.
Cook, who whispered something (probably Uie
verdict of thy jury) in Mrs. Fairs ear. She
turned a tri?e paler than usual, lier head
dropped to one side, but otherwise she did
not seem to be affected by the Intelligence.
The excitement among the" audience was in?
tense, and tiley climbed upon benches and
the backs of chairs in order to obtain a view of
Hie scene which all felt would ensue. Judge
Dwindle took his seat upon Hie bench. A pin
dropping upon the carpet ol the court-room
could then have been heard. People held
their breaths lo hear the verdict. The Utile
?laughter of the prisoner for a moment seemed
awed by the oppressive silence, mid turned
lier wondering blue eyes upon the jury, who in
one short moment would pronounce the sen?
tence that would give'her a mother lor life, or
leave" her an orphan to Hie cold charities ol'
The court then wrote the following and read
it to the jury: "Gentlemen ol the' jury-You
are instructed to stale by your verdict, H'you
convicted the prisoner, whether she was guilty
of murder In the first degree, second degree,
or manslaughter: you should so state."
Foreman. We find ihe prisoner guilty ol
murder In the tlrst degree.
The clerk theu read the verdict, and, calling
each juror by name, asked him ll thal was his
verdict? All replied. "Iiis."
The ominous words, "Guilty of murder in
the first degree," fell irom the lips of Hie fore?
man of the Jury. Mrs. Fair's Utile daughter,
who seemed to comprehend their full meaning,
broke forth in a violent flt ol sobbing. She
leaned over upon lier mother, and her childish
cry of anguish pierced every heart. Her
paroxysm ol'grief became so violent lhat she
sprung Ji oin her chair and fell In her moiher's
lap, her little arms encircling Mrs. Fair's neck.
Slie continued iu this position until the court
adjourned. The scene was a most affecting
one. Several of the Jurors were affected lo
tears, and even Judge Dwindle had difficulty
in retaining command of his voice.
EFFECT -PON MKS. FAIR,
The delivery of the verdict that consigns her
to the gallows liasl uo perceptible effect. Shi'
seemed marble as she reclined in her easy
chair. Mrs. Lane, Hie mother of Mrs. Fair,
betrayed no extraordinary emotion. Her face
flushed slightly as the verdict was recorded;
otherwise, sire gave no token of the ?torm that
must have ruged in her breast as she saw Hie
child of her bosom condemned to au ignomini?
The grief of the'ehiid awoke feelings of com?
passion lu the large crowd; and now Hial
Justice was vindicated, mercy spread about
her ministering spirits to invoke pity for the
child, if not the mother.
THE DELIBERATIONS OF THE JURY.
When the jury retired to their room to de?
liberate, they had not, in accordance with
Judge Dwinelle's instructions, discussed the
mailer of Mrs. Fair's guilt among themselves.
They had been for many days confined to?
gether, and discussed probably almost every
subject within the range ot human observa?
tion except the exact question which brought
.them together. When, uierefore, the seal of
silence wus removed irom their Ups after a
mouth, they felt as though relieved of li great
iucubus, and prepared themselves lo stale
their convictions to each other, based upou
their understanding of thc evidence and the
charge of Hie court. Being all business men,
and having spent a month .cf Hine lu hearing
Hie testimony and Hie arguments, Hiey Indi?
vidually determined to approach the conside?
ration "ol' the case in a business way. If un?
necessary time had been occupied iu hearing
Hie case," they were determined not to spend
any more unnecessary time in Hie determina?
tion ol' the verdict. They llrsl determined to
as is usual in such cases. Their choice fell
upon U. F. Stereo, the printer, the most elder?
ly man upon Hie jury. They next resolved
that "(hulling's Manual"-' should be adopted as
the rule of the discussions that miglil ensue.
Next they determined that a ballot should be
taken tc indicate how Hie jury stood as a body
upon Hie question, Qrst, of murder in the first
degree. Next each juror was numbered as
follows: Henry M. Beach, 1; \V. I). Litchfield.
2; Hiram Rosekraus, 3; 1). C. LiUleiield. 4: ti.
F. Slerelt, 5; J. W. Shadier, C: Hermann Wen?
zen, 7; John E. Freeman, 8: Astf R. Wells. ??;
Ernest Majrlsch, 10 : George Morrow, ll;
Tliomas Ilvrobin, 12. In this order, should a
disagreement result upon the drat-ballot, each
juror should explain his views to Iiis fellow
jurymen. All the preliminaries being arrang
eil. thc foreman slated Hint, the ballin would
be in order. A hal was procured and placed
up'.i. the table, and the loiemau

lo -write ou their ballots "Guilty" or "Not

was done. One by one the Jurors advanced
and placed his wilueu ballot Within Hie recep?
tacle provided. There was a degree of tie
liberatiou which marked lids epl-odein the
discharge of their dillies that denoted how
e?ch individual juror felt ihe importance of
the duty he was then discharging. Not a
word had passed between them upon the ques?
tion of Hie guilt or innocence of the prisoner
at Um bar, Lanni D. Fair. Tuc ballots were
nil in, ann the Jurors resumed their seals, all
anxious lo knoiv how eac'i had voted upon lim

REMANDED TO PRISON.
Arter some discussion between the" prosecu?
ting attorney and Mr. Cook, counsel for the
defence, the court named the 29ih day of Maj?
as the day ou which he would render his sen?
tence. Judge Dwinelle remunded the prison?
er into the custody of the sheriff. She left,
leaning upon the arm of Colonel Knox, and
leading her little daughter by the hand, with
her mother accompanying. A carriage was in
waiting to receive the party, who entered it
amid an immense throng of people gathered
in the streets to get a glimpse at the prisoner.
It was driven to the county Jail, where the
grlsoner alighted, entered, and was enclosed
y the iron doors, to await her forthcoming to
receive sentence lor the crime ol which she
The mother and daughter attempted to en?
ter the jail with Mrs. Fair, but were prevented
by Jailor Kelley. Mrs. Fair appealed to him to
let her child go with her. The Jailor iniorraed
her that it was impossible. His order arid Iiis
duty required him to prevent the entrance oi
both her child and mother. The Jailor asserts
that Mrs. Fair ls confident that she will neither
be hanged nor sent to the State Prison. On
what her faith to the contrary ls based is
known only to herself, but the conjecture is
that she relies upon the Ingenuity ol her coun?
sel Rnd the "quips and quirks" of the law to
effect her release.

tain,! brough Its commissioners.docs not recog?
nize them in coses where such subjects took up
their domicile in thu South, as thereby they
subjected themselves to al! the risks and con?
tingencies ol war. All legit?male claims for
.cotton, however, will be considered. It has
been reported, without warrant, that they
will amount to thirteen millions, or more: but
this ?3 considered to be a great exaggeration.
They will not probably amount to one million
There will OH no difficulty in ascertaining all
Ihe particulars, as the Treasury Department
has full data o? all the seizures of cotton, the
names of owners thereot, und all the particu?
lars concerning the sei/.'ires. Among ihe
Claims which will also come before this board
will be that of cur government, growing out
of iii? parchase o? sullpelre in lue East Indies
during Ihe war, and which was seized by the
British Government This Government is
aware tina unoiher list ol' British claims was
recently published in thal country; but it also
hus information that many ol' them have al?
ready been adjusted, while olliers will not
come within the provisions of the treaty.
There ure other miscellaneous claims which
will come before this second board.
The San Juan question will be referred to
the arbitration of a friendly sovereign, proba?
bly the Emperor of Brazil.
From the documents which accompany the
submission of the treaty, lt is believed that the
decision cannot fail to be in favor of the Unit?
ed States. The treaty provides for the free
navigation of the St. Lawrence by vessels ol
the United States, and for the use o? the Cana?
dian canals, upon the payment of regular tolls.
There are also provisions regulating the privi?
lege of fishing in Canadian waters, but these
have not been ascertained tn sufficient accu?
racy to justify their statement.
The London Times of to-day mistakes in say?
ing that the treaty must be ratified by both
houses of Parliament. Its legislation will,
however, be required to carry some of its pro?
visions into effect.
The mixed Spanish commission consists of
Otto, as arbitrator; Cushing, attorney on be?
half of the United States; Polish arbitrator,
and Carlisle, attorney on behalf of Spain.
The High Commission takes no cognizance
of contracts between British subjects and the
admitted by the medical profession as a funda?
mental principle of healing science. It Is wisely
provided by the human economy that whenever
anything is wrong in the physical system the
natural forces, of. the body-are brought to bear to
expel the disease. The great aim, therefore, is
to strengthen the natural powers. This has been
kept In view by the skilful compounUers of HOS
TF.TTEB'S STOMA CB BITTERS, which operates
to give fresh vitality to all the organs of the body.
The effect of this medicine upon the stomach, the
liver and the kidneys ls proniptand declive.
The patient, who is wlseenongh to qultdrngglng
and try the Bitters, soon feels as if he had taken
a new lease of life, and, as he" continues the use
of the article, he ls overjoyed to lind the streams
of health coursing through his frame. It is pre?
pared with great care, and Its component parts
are entirely vegetable. It Is free from the objec?
tions so often urged against preparations of the
kind. As a medicinal agent, it ha? no equal,
while Its pleasing flavor and healthful effects have
made it a general favorite. It is free from all
properties calculated to Impair the system, and
Its operations are at once mild, soothing and
efficient. All who have used II05TETTER'S
STOMACH BITTERS attest ifs virtues and com.
Even those who are in the enjoyment of perfect
health frequently have need to have recourse to
tonics as preventives ot disease. " We arc never
too well armed against the assaults of "the Ills
that flesh is heir to.:' In health or sickness this
tonic cannot be taken regularly without giving
vitality and elasticity to .the system.
