"A decision of considerable importance to ail
persons whe have parchased real estate in the
South, under the salea of the same by the Fed?
eral Government for taxes was decided In the
Supreme Court ol the United States to day, on
an appeal from a claimant whose land had
been sold by the Federal tax commissioners
under the act of 1862, and a deed given by two
o? the three commissioners who were author?
ised to sell. Two questions were involved
the validity of the-law and the validity ef the
dsed: The court sustained bo tb, and held
that aa the sale was. made by a public act, lt
was entirely competent for two o: the three
commis-loners to convey a title. The virtual
effect of this decision Ls to give all the present
owner; of these landa a fee-simple in the
same. A good, deal of property ls held in
Virginia and Sou; b Carolina under these tax
-A Washington correspondent of the New
Tork Herald declares that he has succeeded
in ferreting out main points o? th? President's
annual message. He says: "The leading
subjects which will be discussed will be Inter?
nal taxation, the tariff, finances, the Washing?
ton Treaty, the Indians, and the Ku-Klux dis?
turbances in the South. Oa th? question of
internal taxation It ls understood that the j
message will recommend the abolition of ali I
internal taxes, except on spirits, malt liquors,
tob?ceo- ia every form, and stamps. Con?
sidering the satisfactory condition of the
financ?e, lt has been fou ad by careful esti?
mates that the carrent expenses of the gov?
ernment, including the interest on the
national debt, can be easily met from the
revenues from these sources, and still leave
a surplus lor an annual small ?reduction
of the principal. This ls chiefly owing to the !
successful administration of the Internal rev?
enue bureau in the collection of the taxes on
the articles retained. The tariff will also be
fully treated upon, but the message will em?
brace no specific recommendttions as to the
articles upon which there shall be a reduction
or which shall be placed on the free list. The
message will also allude, but very briefly, to
tba operations of the Ku-Klux societies ia the
Southern St J tes. It will be left to the Attor?
ney General to report at length the condition
of the question and what measures have been
taken to suppress this insurrectionary order.
The labors of the high joint commission,
and the successful conclusion of the Wash?
ington Treaty during the past year, wili be a
subject of congratulation to Congress, with
the expression of the belief that the comple?
tion oi the duties of the commissions estab?
lished by the treaty will harmonize all mat?
ters of controversy which have been ^ !">ng
pending between'the governments at Wash?
ington and london. This will also lead to
some observations upon the generally satis?
factory relations existing between the United
States and the rest of the world. Theaieces
eity of a reform in the civil service has
already been brought before Congress In pre?
vious messages. Another relerence to the
subject may be made. Any further discus?
sion of the St Domingo question is yet under
advisement. The message, it ls understood,
wi'] bc as brief as the subjects discussed will
admit, merely calling the prominent points of
the department reports to the special atten?
tion of Congress."
-Hon. Montgomery Blair has been Inter?
viewed. Be sayc let the Democratic party as
an organization stand back and the field be
kept clear to the disaffected and independent
Eci-ublicacs: let the Radicals call their con?
vention and nominate Grant, and* let the inde?
pendent Republicans bolt and nominate who?
ever they please, and then the Democrats rally
lo his support He says some sacrifice must
be made to defeat Grant, and expresses a per?
sonal preference for William Cullen Bryant,
although he thinks that Trumbull would make
a splendid candidate, as would a'so Judge
Davis, Judge Rowney, ex-Secretiry Cox or
Mr. Gratz Brown. In spite or his tariff pro?
clivities, he would support Mr. Greeley. He
does not think there is any scarcity of
material, and that the only difficulty to
be apprehnded ls In the Hunkerlsm and
Boc: bonum of the Democracy, hi the course
of bis interview, Mr. Blair said : "If
the Democrats don't make a nomination,
Grant will make one for them. He will buy
up enough Democrats to hold a convention,
and go through with the farce of making a
nomination. I have reason to know that he
would have attempted lt In 1868 if Chase had
been nominated. That is a thing to be pro?
vided for at the proper time. But Grant still
holds a strong sectional card which he In?
tends to play. Why, he is the man that went
down to the capital last spring, and when
Congress was baiting over an enforcement
bill, ordered that one be passed, and lt was
done. Grant hos got a Ku-Klux bill, and, for
mere sectional capital, he is bound to find a
a Ku-Klux organization. He has sent a com?
mittee trouping all through the Southern
States, and the evidence they have collected
is simply wadding for partisan guns to ne
fired from every Northern rostrum next sum?
mer. This will make votes in .certain locali?
ties, unless some such men as Sumner. Bry
ant or Trumbull can counteract it. The
people of this country are growin? indifferent
to public affaire through their dlBgust at
the way in which they are controlled. Now,
there are fie Germans. They will never sup?
port Grant a second time. 1 look upon Carl
Schurz as one ol' the mo3t thorough, sensitive
plants in existence. He knows, by intuition,
what the Germans as a mass intend doing.
We had ' a demonstr?isn of that in the latter
patt of Mr. Lincoln's term, when the Ger?
mans became somewhat disaffected towards
his administration. The Germans have a
thorough national spirit. They have a natural
hatred to oppression in all its peases, and (bis
made them the most determined opponents of
slavery. It was of the German element that
the Republican party was built up In Texas
and Missouri. ? It was through this element
that the same party has benn victorious in sev?
eral of the leading Northern States. The Ger?
mans would vote for a Democrat before they
would support Grant lor another term."
This being Thanksgiving Day, under the.
proclamations of President .Grant and Gov
ernor Scott, the p.iblic offices and banks will
be closed, and there will be a partial suspen?
sion Of general business. A number or picnic
parties have been organized, and the school
boys, at ali events, will hall with joy their
holiday. The men of business will tarn a
nimble sixpence as long as they-can, and the
fortunate folk who are not compelled to work,
will doubtless devote the morning to pious
supplication. Just at this time there is
much to be thankful for, and more to pray
The Height of Impudtnce.^^s
This phrase, in future, will have a sharper
significance than hos been given to it by
either flash weeklies or comic annuals. The
"height of impudence" is the Annual Mes?
sage of Governor Scott, written, according
to common report, by the notorious Thomas
Jefferson Mackey. It is filled with acrid
abuse of the respectable white people of the
Slate. It is without parallel in its brazen ef?
ren tery. Bat it will, we suppose, accomplish
its dual ourpose. of patching up the totter?
ing financial fabric, and of giving the Radi?
cal journalists and Radical politicians ample
ground for defending the despotic acts of the
soldier-President of the United States. The
gross exaggerations and bold falsehoods of
the Message will be swallowed without salt
by the administration organs. Against, the
florid declarations of oar Executive, the naked
truth will not, for the moment, prevail. And
yet we owe it to ourselves to point ont tbe
more prominent of the vicious untruths to
which Governor Scott gives the sanction of
his official Signatare.
It is truelhat THE CHARLESTON NEWS, in
1868 and 1869, did advise, and urge, a repu?
diation of the new debt contracted after the
war. We were aware that such a course
could only become of real effect when the
State Government should be controlled by
upright men, who would pay every dollar of
honest debt while refusing to pay a single
cent of debt which had been fraudulently in?
creased. But, whatever its actual merits,
the proposal was certainly more capable of
taking a practical shape In Lhe first days of
the Scott administration than in the third
year of Radical misgovernment. The new
government is now consolidated. It bas ac?
quired a quosi-stability, and has been ac-1
knowledged and recognized by successive
conventions of the whole people. It bas at
its back lhe bayonets of the Federal Army,
and the whole power, civil and political, of
the Federal Government. We have lillie
hope of accomplishing in 1871 more than
could be accomplished in 1868. What we now
desire to'show is, That the breaking down
of tEe State credit, involving, according to
Governor Scott, an immense in?rense of the
bonded debt, is not the result of any local or
partisan combination against tbe Govern?
ment of the State.
The efforts of THE NEWS to unite the tax?
payers in opposition to the State Govern?
ment, with the object of acquiring a healthy
and legitimate influence in lhe public coun?
sels, were unsuccessful. It seemed, indeed,
that both the press acd people were willing
to tike the new gov ern Lient on trust. There
were a Tew staunch men who sided with as,
bat neither they nor THE NEWS had any ad?
verse influence apon tbe credit of the Stace.
This is shown by the fact that the price of
the State bonds steadily advanced, so that,
as late os June, 1870, they sold at 82. By
this Mme. with one exception, every act un?
der which boncls of the State have been
issued had become law. The Sterling Fond?
ing bill wai not passed. But the Conver?
sion bill, the Land Commission bills, the
Bills Receivable bill, the Payment of Inter?
est bill, the Relief of the Treasury bill and
the Bank of the State Funding bill were al?
ready upon the Statute Book. It had been
shown by THE NEWS that the debt was rap?
idly increasing ia volume, that the current
expenditures were enormously larger than
before the war, and that the true condition
of the State finances was studiously conceal?
ed. We did all we could to enlighten the
public. And yet, in June, 1870, the Stale
bonds were among the eighties. Whatever
Governor Scott may say, neither TUE NEWS
nor local combinations had, a little more
than a year ago, impaired in any way the
financial standing of the State.
The revelations made duriDg the Scott
Carpenter canvass had, we presume, some
effect upon the Northern money-lenders. Al?
though there was no panic, the bonds de?
clined In price. Ia April last they stood In
the neighborhood of 60. At that time the
people were thorough ly aroused to the nec?
essity of taking steps to avoid the ruinons
demand that the taxes of two years be paid
in less than twelve months. This double-tax.
question was the cause of the public meet?
ings in Charleston, which led to the^ay
very far from striking at the credit of tfie^
State, affirmed and recognized the validity]
of the public debt, as reported to the Conven-*
tion by the Comptroller-General. We fail to
find in this course any evidence of the ex?
istence of a conspiracy to break down the
pnblic credit The Convention warned the
public against receiving lhe Sterling Fund?
ing bonds and any other bonds thereafter
issued, but this did not hurt tbe bonds al?
ready issued. On the contrary, it added to
their value, and, when the action of the
Convention was known, the bonds, which
had just before advanced, fully maintained
their price. A few months later a fresh de.
cline set in, and at the the (foss of the Chicago
fire the new bonds were selling at 50. There
was a full in Vie price of al! securities.
Loans were called io, and where the money
waa not forthcoming the collateril securities
were sold. New South Carolina bonds' went
to 41. And this was before one word had
beenpublicly said about over-issues or re?
pudiation. Toe rapidity of the fall brought
to light some ugly truths. Under their in?
fluence, and tliat of the card published by
Governor Scott, the new bonds collapsed. We
haye, therefore, established these points:
That (1) the repudiation agitation in 1868
and 1869 did pot prevent the bonds from
rising to between eighty and ninety; that (2)
the price of the bonds steadily decUned, in
the absence of all agitation, to about 50 ;
that (3) the Taxpayers* Convention affirmed
and recognized, in May last, all the pnblic
debt reported to the body by the Comptrol?
ler; that (4) the bonds, without any inju?
rious movement upon the part cl the tax?
payers, fell to 41; that (5) nuder the in?
fluence of Governor Scott's own card, and
the pressure of forced eales, the price de?
clined to 23. We might add that the old
bonds have stood steadily at about 70, while
the new bonds were ?meng the twenties.
These facts are sufficient to show that Gov?
ernor Scott's charge that the people of the
State are responsible for the failure of the
public credit, i. e. the fall in the bonds, is
wilfully and maliciously untrue.
What, then, are the canses of the finan?
cial smash over which Governor Scott
sheds some crocodile's tears? We answer
that they are: 1. The fearful extravagance of
the State Government 2. The attempt to
carry a large floating debt, in New York,
upon the security of bonds of the State.
Governor Scott's own message proves these
propositions. The debt, a year ago, was
reported to be $7,665,908. It is now re?
ported to be $11,994,908, exclusive of a
floating debt of $900,000, to secure, which
$3,773,000 in bonds of the State are hy?
pothecated. Governor Scott admits that the
legislative expenses of last session were
$583,651, and sharply criticises "the ex?
travagant and illicit disbursement of the
' State moneys to which-the legislative de
apartment has given either its express or
"implied sanction." It was within the power
of Governor Scott to sell the State bonds at
80, or over, and so cancel the floating debt? Io
his great wisdom be would not allow this to
be done. The consequence is that $900,000
in money are now equal to $2,700,000 in
bonds, while eighteen months ago th? sale
of $1,100,000 of bonds would have paid oil
the money debt of $900,000. It is useless
for Governor Scott to attempt to shift the
blame upon other shoulders. The State
Government, and not the taxpayers, are re?
sponsible for ?ll the troubles, social, political
and financial, which have fallen upon the
State of South Carolina.
Otra correspondent Picket gives a lively
account of the opening of the General As?
sembly. There was an incipient row, and
the House postponed the reading of the
Messaga Otherwise, all was tolerably tran?
WE have heard of many a worse proposi?
tion than that of Senator Hay ne-to destroy
all the unsigned and unissued bonds of the
State, in the presence of the General Assem?
bly. Mr. Whittemore, however, persuaded
the Senate that it was better to await the re?
port of the Senate Investigating Committee.
New State Papers.
We have received copies of the first issue
ol the Aiken Tribune and of the Abbeville
-Ved i um.
The Tribune is a neatly printed and well ar?
ranged sheet, edited by Mr. Henry Sparnick,
who is, also, the propiietor. It will advocate
the principles ol the National Republican patty,
but promises lt will be liberal and Just as well
as fearless and enterprising. This ls lar more
than we have been in the habit ot getting from
the Radical presses in this State.
The Afediuro-edited by Mr. Robert R.
H em phi ll-ls a very large and handsome
paper of thirty-two columns. It bas a goodly
array of advertisements, and proposes to be an
Independent Journal, advocating "'ail meas
"urea that may really tend to build up and
"strengthen" the county and State. We hope
that the Independence of onr new acquaint?
ance will be far removed irom Neutrality.
THE TRUE GROUNDS OP CONFI?
DENCE.-Whence comes that Arm reliance, that
absolute, uadoabtlag faith In the efficacy of HOS
j TETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS as a remedy for
I indigestion, billons disorders, Intermittent and
remittent fevers, which notoriously prevails In all
parts of the United States? This confidence has
been growing for twenty years, and it is still ex?
tending. It IB not the remit ot credulity, lt has
not been engt ndered by any human device, but is
the tp. ntaneous and natural consequence of ex?
perience. What people see dally gplng on under
their own eyes they cannot qnestlon. When ?smi?
lies in no healthy districts, that resort to tbls
wholesome vegetable tonic as a preventive, escape
periodical fevers, und the r Immediate neighbors,
who neglect that piecantion, are prostrated by
the distases, how is lt possible tbat the phenome?
non should be without its lesson r In like man?
ner when lt is seen that obstinate case* of dys?
pepsia, of liver compl?t?t, of constipation, of
ue: vom weakness, and of general debility, yield
to the operation of the famous remedy, how can
even Incredn lty itself withhold Its endorsement?
Eye-witnesses of the salutary effects of the Bit?
ters are to be found In every civilized settlement
on this continent. The thousands upon thous?
ands who owe their restoration to health and
strength, or their preservation from sickness to
Its extra;, rdlnary medicinal properties, are en?
thusiastic la Its praise. The multitudes who re?
commend lt In a neighborly way to their friends
