-A proposition has been made to thc ? gov-1

tracts of ground for the purpose ol breeding
and rearing the animals, which are to be
"corraled" therein as cattle are "corraled" in
Texas. The uses of the buffalo to civilization
are' two-fold. In the first place, if not too old,
the buffalo serves for very good eating-In
fact, In the way ot a steak he cannot be Bur
passed, unies.', indeed, an epicure should pre?
fer the "haunch." Then, again, his shaggy
covering, reduced to a "robe," becomes very
valuable. Ou the whole, the buffalo or bison,
unlike most undomesticated animals, is useful
to man In various ways, and the idea of thus
utilizing lt strikes us as being a good one.
Certainly lovers of good eating would be glad
to be able to order of their butcher buffalo meat
for breakfast or dinner, as they now do in ihe
matter of more familiar but less juicy ani?

A Word to tbe Stockholders of the St
Carolina Railroad Company.
A desperate effort ls making, in tb
terest of the Central Railroad of Gee
and the City of Savannah, to ruin the S
Carolina Railroad, to impoverish the
pie of South Carolina, and to destroy
City of Charleston.
I This is to be accomplished by obtait
control of the South Carolina Railroad
lease or otherwise, and by retaining t
control until its immense Southern i
Western business is permanently diver
into other channel?, when it will be tos

With higher rates charged for freight
and frem Charleston than to and fr<
Savannah, with the whole power of t
Georgia Central Railroad and the leased
bought South Carolina Railroad direct
against Charleston, this city would obta
no other business than such as might dri
ble down from a few way-stations in tl
interior. The city would be as complete
isolated as when every railroad leading fro
it was torn up by the Federal soldier
Desolation and decay would swiftly ai
The plans, of the public enemy are no
known. They have already bought, at
third of its face value, about one-fifth i
the entire stock capital of the South Can
lina Railroad. Unless they find us full
prepared, they will attempt to lease tb
road at the meeting of the stockholders t
be held in Charleston, next Tuesday. J
they fail in this-and we have shown else
where that the proposed lease would be a
disastrous to the stockholders as to th<
people at large-they will endeavor to con
tlnue their purchasing of j?tock until thei
have a? controlling vote, when they wil
either compel a lease, or, without a lease,
work the road against this State, and foi
the sole advantage of the Central Railroad
and of Savannah.
The first step, then, is to defeat at the
coming meeting any movement looking tc
a lease of the South Carolina Railroad, 01
to a change in its wise and fruitful policy.
There is stock enongh held by South Caro?
linians, whose every interest is in this State,
to reject any such proposal by a decisive
vote. The Central Ring must be whipped
and handsomely whipped, that they may
know that this people are not so foolish
as to sell their trade and their commerce,
their whole security and prosperity, for a
beggarly and precarious dividend. In order
that this may be done, beyond peradven?
ture, we exhort every stockholder of the
South Carolina Railroad Company, who
owns property in this State or city, or who
?3 dependent for bis business upon low rates
of freight and free competition, to send bis
proxy at once to some gentleman in Charles?
ton whom he can trust, and whom he knows
to be more deeply concerned in guarding
and fostering the public interests than in
reaping a profit from a stock speculation.
If this be done, and ( done quickly, the
first attack of the Central Railroad Ring
will be sharply repulsed. We shall then
have time to carry into effect measures
which will make iv impossible for any rivals,
however powerful, to U9e our main trunk
railroad as a means of enriching them, and
o? reducing to beggary a community now
fairly recovering from the losses of pest'- [
lenee and war.
? Tbc I.eate of the South Carolina Kail
road lp the Central Railroad-It? Cer
I tain and Unavoidable Kranit.
When we said that the proposed lease of |
the South Carolina Kail road wonld result in
the sale of the road to satisfy the accruing
bond debt, we gave utterance to no imagina?
ry or forced conclusion. It will be a cer?
tain, unavoidable result. It is said the en?
gagement of the lessee will be to pay a divi?
dend of four per centum. How is it sup?
posed that this can be done ? It is said by
raising rates; that both roads, under one
control, can do so. But cannot the rates be
raised by agreement between the roads, as
well as by a lease of the one road to tbe
other ? Surely so. Why, then, are they not
raised ? Is it not because the management
or the Central Road Torces the reduction?
But if the Central Road nowforces the re?
duction, for what purpose will it in the
future, as a lessee, increase these rates ?
Will the increase of rates on the Sooth Caro?
lina Road bring business to Charleston?
Will it not certainly force it to Savannah ?
And if this is BO, will not the decrease of
business carry with it, of coarse, decrease
of income? The business of the South
Carolina Road ls thenceforth directed to
Savannah; the income of the South Carolina
Road is no longer adequate; the necessity
for keeping the engagement as to dividends
no longer exist3, and the easy extrication
from that engagement is to allow the road
to be sold at the instance of those who bold
I the matured bonds.
Ali this Beems to us so plain that we do
not see how any can doubt. It is not neces?
sary for ua to say that the proposed- lessees
of the South Carolina Road at this time
contemplate this result. It is sufficient for
us to Bay that, whether contemplated or not,
it must come as the necessary, unavoidable
result of the lease.
We suppose that the Directors of the
South Carolina Road are at least as anxious
as could be the lessees of that road to make
a dividend for the stockholders. They have
felt that the condition of the road up to this
time did not warrant it. What can the
lessees do with it that will make its opera?
tions more profitable, for they cannot lessen
the debt, and, therefore, the increase of its
profits can be the only source from which
they can perform their promises as to divi?
dends ? Now, it is too absurd fer belief that
they intend to promote the interests of j
stockholders of this road, to their own detri?
ment. They do not propose to take away
any business from tbe Central Railroad or
the City of Savannah. Then we are carried
back to tbe increase of rates; and we aie to
believe that business is to be secured to the
South Carolina Road by an increase of its
rates. If Bach explanations can satisfy any
thinking stockholder, then all we can say is
that he is a moBt easily satisfied person.
But in this ever recurring increase of |
rates, it is. not remembered that to these
rates there is a limit fixed in the charter of I
the road. These cannot be exceeded. And
if rates are raised as high as these limits
expressed in the charter allow, we predict
that the loss of business in cons?quence of
the increase of the rates would not make
the results of business equal to what it is
It may be that we shall be told all this
amounts to an announcement that the South
Carolina Railroad cannot, perhaps will
never, pay dividends. Far from it. We be?
lieve that it will not be long before the pay
ment of dividends to its stockholders will be
certain, and recompense them for the delays
which they have borne. We believe, more?
over, that it will be only and so long as the
ownership and control of the road is with
the people of the State that the stockholder
will bave his stock or receive bis dividends.
The real value of the road is more fixed and
positive at this day than it bas been since
the close of the war. And the proof of this
is in the fact which has caused this expres?
sion of our opinions-that the stock of the
road is sought for by capitalists io other
cities, and a rival and competing road that
hitherto acted as if it ignored its existence,
now is sufficiently moved by its progress to
boy off its opposition.
It is to the great advantage of our city,
as a seaport, that, in the great trials of the
lost seven years, it has been able to main?
tain itself. Take from it its control of the
communications with those places from
which come commodities that are its ex?
ports, and yon may as well fill np its chan?
nels, and let its docks and wharves go to
utter decay. Whenever you can bring pro?
duce here as cheaply as to any other sea?
port, it will come. It is only when it does
come freely that we shall prosper, and it only
can assuredly so come when here we con?
trol the means of communications, and
these means directed to the great end of re
storing to the city and its people the success
and prosperity of former days.
We have expressed ourselves in relation
to this proposed lease in plain terms. We
feel that we are on the defensive. We have
the right to sound the alarm and arouse our
people to the danger with which they are
threatened. We have not considered wheth?
er sacb a lease or any lease of the South
Carolina Railroad can be made consistent
with its charter. Of that we do not pretend
to judge. But we have seen in one State its
whole railroad interests absorbed by a lease
to a great monopoly in another State, and
the ineffectual efibrts of a part of the peo?
ple of that State to prevent this barter of
tbe franchise which the State gave to its
own citizens. We believe that duty to the
State, to the city and to ourselves will pre?
vent us from doing here what in other places
has been so unwisely done, and which was
deeply regretted when done, but could not
then be undone.
