?SPECIAL TBXXGBAK TO TES NEWS. ]
COLUMBIA, Sunday Night, December 1.
Governor Scott will send bis valedictory
message to the Assembly to-morrow. Its tone
ls very temperate and conciliatory. He re?
views bis administration; mentions the abun?
dant harv es ts of the present year, and the
general increase In commercial Importance
and prospects, under a reign of peace through?
out Ute State, Refers to the singular condi?
tion of the State and country when he was
elected first; the nattering vote by which
he was twice chosen, and to the minority
which at that time kept aloof from all that
tended to bring about a better state of feeling
between them and the majority. In this con?
nection a referenoe ls made to bis first in?
augural address treating and advising upon
the same subject, making a close comparison
and thorough review of the situation then and
now. The financial conditioner the State
then shlfeow ls referred'to, and the canses
and the reasons for the changes
made; ! the Increase ot the debt and
other financial measures are briefly
explained, as also the opposition of the
Democracy and the Democratic press in the
State, whloh tended to make matters worse in
this respect Instead o? better. The fact of Ku
?Gux outrages having been committed, and
that nine connues had been placed ander
martial law on account thereof, tending also
to Increase the'lndebteness, ls alluded to. The
charges and asseverations against bis admin?
istration aro taken up, and briefly answered.
The improvements, prosperity, 4c, of the
past four years In connection with the build
lag; up ot the waste places, the Increase of
business, A.c., are cited; and reference ls
made to an. editorial article In Tn CHARLES?
TON NEWS of last July, in whloh a hopeful
view was taken of the material prospecta of
the State. The message conclude?, lt ls said,
by a reference to the fact of his having been a
prisoner of war at Charleston; of his having
beon humanely treated, and of the subsequent
responsible duty which he performed in the
State siter the war, and before he was chosen
its Governor; ot the feeling o: pride be shall
always possess fo4?aving been identified with
the new form of the government of the State.
He admits that he bas committed errors, but
claims that they were only such as were
natural ander the very peculiar changes and
circumstances ot the times, and such as
would have probably been committed by al?
most any man in the same position. Inclos?
ing, be declares that he ls willing to leave the
review and criticism ot his stewardship to
time, feeling that, ir weighed justly, his errors
will beitound not chargeable to a want of

THE ALABAMA TROUBLE.
United states Cavalry Encamp jd About
the Capitol-The Movement Creates
Great Excitement-Thc General Gov?
ernment to lae Advised of the Situa.
MONTGOMERY, November 30.
This morning detachments ot the Ninth
United States Cavalry marched to a point J
twenty yards from the Capitol grounds and
bivouacked. Intense excitement followed,
but learning that the troops were intended
for a mere posse co ml tat us, and not to drive
the Legislature from the Capitol, the excite?
ment subsided somewhat.
The Legislature at the Capitol passed a bill
and sent lt to Governor Lewis, but he refused
to receive lt. A Joint resolution passed rais?
ing a committee to communleate the facts ot
the sltualllon by telegraph to the government
at Washington, and appointing a delegate to
present a written statement of the case to the
President. The L?gislature express great con?
fidence that the President wl.i sustain them,
when the tacts are laid before him.
In answer to the committee of the Capitol
Legislature, Governor Lewis yesterday replied
that two bodies 'claim his recognition. That I
the members of the other received a majority !
ol the votes cast, and that be could not re?
cognize the Capitol Legislature, because, if
the persons whom he said did not receive a |
majority were included, the body would be
without a quorum. The Courthouse body did
nothing to-day, but has been in secret session
a considerable portion of the day.

OUR COTTON SPINNERS.
STRIKING ADVANTAGES OE THE
Some Hard Facts for .he Consideration
Tbe following communication appears ID
the New York Journal of Commerce of Thurs?
A IK KN, 8. C., November, 1872.
To Ute "Editor of Hie Journal of Commerce :
It ls astonishing that the success ot the few
cotton iactorles at the South since the war bas
not Induced capitalists irora abroad to Increase
From the reports of the president of the
Granite ville Mills (Ave miles distant from
Aiken) for the years 1868,1869 and 1870, 1 col?
late the following figures, and I learn that the
report for the past year was still more favora- ;
The machinery of this mill at the expiration
of Tue war consisted of 9120 spindles and 337
looms, worn out, and its capital was Inju?
diciously inoreased irom $469,000 to $716,500.
Yet. notwithstanding this great dtspatlty be?
tween capital and spindles, the exhibit de?
velops the fact that lt has renewed the greater
part of Its maohlnery, Increasing its spindles
to 24.000 and its looms to 570, and the produc?
tive capacity from 60.000 to 175,000 yards per [
week, besides new houses for operatives and
other Improvements, and all this without
Btopping dividends or assessing the stock?
holders. In 1867 the company was owing
$166,000, most ol it bearing interest at 12 per
cent., while in 1871 the surplus was $187.000.
In the year ending March 1, 1871, 3,080,123
oounds of colton was consumed at an aver?
age cost of 17.13 eenie per pound, producing:
8,444,076 . 4 4aheetlng.

At a meeting of the stockholders in the
spring of 1872 the president proposed to double
the capacity of the mill In three years, and
yet pay a dividend of ten per cent, p r an?
Can any Northern factory make a better ex?
hibit? The cotton mills of Augusta and Co?
lumbus, Georgia, are doing proportionately
The Augusta mills, with a capital stock of
$600,000, had In 1870 $400,000 as a surplus fund,
and commercial capital after paying quarterly j
dividends ot five per cea t., ortweniy per cent,
per annum. ,
It has been practically demonstrated that
cotton can be spun into yarns at the South for
6 cents per pound cheaper than lt can be spun
In Old or New England; consequently a prop?
erly conducted mill could make 6 cents on
each pound of yarn more than Northern facto- j
rles, which are and have been enriching their
stockholders, and peopling wlih teeming |
thousands the rooky hills of the East.
I would call particular attention to the fol?
lowing extraot from a report made by Colonel
J. B. Palmer, president of the Saluda Cotton
Mills, in 1869 :
"I support these positions by the following
statement ot actual cost of mannlacturlng al
the Saluda Mills, as shown by our books.
"It must be recollected that we have em
ployed, In the manufacture of No. 20 yarn.1,
only 4000 spindles (Jenks ring travellers.) Of |
course a greater number of spindles, or the
production ot yarns of a lower number, would

A manuiaclurer of cotton yarns from Man?
chester, England, after looking at our books,
told me that we manufactured obeaper than
they did by about ihe difference In value of our
currency and gold-that is to say, 4j cents per
Among the advantages enjoyed by the South
over the North In manufacturing cotton may
be enumerated the following :
1. Here the raw material ls produced, and
by working it here various expenses Inciden?
tal to Its transportation could be sa ved-sue h
as profits made by those who Invest capital,
time and lLbor in moving it from place to
place; insurance during transportation; loss by
samplings and stealages Irom the bales.
2. Experts claim that in our warm Southern
clime cotton works to better advantage, some
estimating this advantage as high SB ten per
3. Reclamation on false-packed and dam?
aged cotton is direct' and easy.
4. Freights on manufactured goods are less !
In proportion than on bulky and hazardous
bales of cotton. Yarns can be delivered In
New York from this vicinity for 60 to 80 cents
6. Abundant supply of operative labor at low
rates and consequent exemption Irom strikes.
Northern superintendents of Southern mills
admit the superiority of our bands, (whites.)
and the ease with which they are controlled.
The average wagea paid at the Saluda Mills
are $142 82 per annum.
6. The mildness ot tbe climate enables the
operatives to en) oy a larger proportion of corn?
ions ou a given amount of wages. In cold
climates a larger proportion of carbonaceous
food ls requisite, which costs more than fari?
naceous lood, nor do the houses lor operatives
require to be so expensive aa In oolder re?
gions. Lumber of the best kipds coat only
$12 or $15 per thousand. The short winters
require less fuel. Land Is cheap, and each
household can have Its garden, cow and plgd.
7. There ls a home demand for ihe goods
the larder country stores keep supplies of
yarn for sale as regularly as they do sheetings.
8. By purchasing seed cotton from the
planters and ginning lt at the mill the cotton
is in a belter condition for working than after
it has been compressed Into bales, and the ex?
pense o? packing the cotton, bagging, ties and
handling would be* saved, as well ns the ex?
pense of running lt through the picker. The
wastage cotton undergoes in different ways
has been estimated from one-tenth to one
eighth ot the bale..
The Langley Mills, ten miles from Aiken,
were exempted by an aot of the Legislature
from taxation fur a term ol years, and as there
is a disposition io encourage manufactures, a
like Immunity would be granted to other com?
The remarkable healthfulness of this sand?
hill region is noted far and wide. For years
Aiken has been not only a resort for Northern
invalids lu winter, but also a retreat for the
citizens of the Southern coast regions in sum?
mer. Situated among the pines in the heart
of the "cotton region," and in close proximity
to Augusta, the largest interior cotton mart,
and connected by rail with Charleston, one of
the best of the Southern seaports, this neigh?
borhood ls a favorable point for the location
of factories. Tbe pre-eminent success of the
Augusta, Orangeville and Langley mills war?
rants the opinion that other mills would prove
Could the entire crop of cotton be converted
into yarns at the South, and shipped abroad lu
that form, lt would add $150,000,000 annually to
the wealth of this portion of the United States.
Foreign mills would adapt their machinery to
working up the yarns I nstead of the raw cotton.
Il but one-quarter of the crop could be thus
converted lt would be a great blessing to ibis
oountry, and enable numbers ot women and
children who are now dependent on others to
support themselves. NEKIA.

A STORM IN TBE FRENCH ASSEMBLY.
PARIS, November 30.
In the National Assembly this afternoon, be?
fore the miaules of the previous Bitting were
ratified, M. Baragnon, a Conservative deputy,
protested against the vote of yesterday on tbe
resolution of Minister Dufaure belog recorded,
because several of the deputies were absent;
and he did not believe the result was a lair
expression ot the'will of the assembly. M.
Battil said he considered that the vote elo?
quently demonstrated on which side the Con?
servative policy could be found. The remarks
gave rise io great excitement In the chambers.
Many protested against the language of Battil.
and recriminations passed backward and. for?
ward between the opposing parties.
A deputy irom Paris questioned the govern?
ment lo relation to encouraging the addresses
which bad been sent to Thiers by the munlcl
pal councils during Ihe present controversy,
and accused the government of conniving at
and Inciting them. M. Let rance, minister of
the interior, warmly defended the action ot
tte government In receiving the addresses,
and announced lhat he accepted for himself
the principle of ministerial responsibility. The
agitation In the chambers here became very
great. M. Duval made a violent attack upon
the government. Henceforth, be said, neither

THE DEATH OF GREELEY.
FURTHER PARTICULARS OF HIS LAST
[ HI? Last Words, "It ls Done"-Tribute
Of the Tribune-Sketch of tile Career
of the Great Journalist.
NEW YORK, November 30.
! The accounts published of Mr. Greeley's last
moments represent bim to have been con?
scious. During the day, as is usual in cases
of inflammation of the bruin, his physical suf?
fering was extremely sllfhf, but Increased,
and a morbid action of tbe mind was evident
from exterior manifestations. He was a?ked,
"Do you know that you are dying ?" Without
tremor or emotion he answered, 'Ter."
Again, when asked If he recognised Mr. Held?
he looked up with immediate r?cognition,
lifting his band, grasped Mi. Reid's feebly,
and said distinctly, "Yes."
His last words were, "It is done." His face
hardly changed, only settling a little into a
look of perfect peace.
At six o'clock Thursday ?x-Surg"on Gen?
era! Hammond arrived at th) bedside of Mr.
Greeley, and held a lengthy consultation with
the attendant physician, who has not left him
since tbe first alarming symptoms manifested
themselves. The Herald report says : .
The cause of his illness ls concisely slated
by those in charge. Mr. Greeley, already
worn by the almost constant exertion and the
loss of sleep lucldental to lils tour through
the West, was during bis lue wife's illness
always at her side. By the deepest entreaties
he was prevailed upon to take only four or
five hours' sleep in twenty-fear, and from lack
of rest ensued nervous prostration. It was
with difficulty, too, that he could be Induced
to eat sufficient food lo sf."ord bim proper
nourishment, saying it was distasteful to him.
Still his vigorous constitution remained ap?
parently unshaken UH witt in the past ten
days, when the keen eves ot hie friends noted
bis tailing health, though they were hardly
prepared for BO sadden and complete loss ot
In relation to Mr. Greeley's conversation
and actions, Dr. Hammond said :
He talks Incoherently the whole time, and ls
quite obstinate. If one wants bim to (bow
the pupil of his eye he Immediately closes lils
eyelid lightly and refuses point ?blank to let
anybody look at lt. II bis pulse has to be leif,
be struggles and keeps his wrist hidden as
long as he can. He retases to eat anything
from a spoon, so we had to administer beef
tea through a tube. He does not ki.ow bis
own daughter. He keeps talking the whole
time, but as wbat he says Is quite unintelligi?
ble, of course no notice is taken ot ltA One
thing he kept repeating over and over again
while I was there was, "I ?lied when I was
born, and I was born when I died."
Concerning the dlagnnMs, Dr. Hammond
said that in his opinion Mr. Greeley was sur?
fe ri og Irom Inflammation ot the brain and its
mern Dranes. "While there ls life," of course,
he added, "lhere is hope, but there are more
than ninety-live chances in a hundred against
his eurvlvlog forty-eight boura."
The sequel bas sadly shown how true were
the tears ot the physician.
The Tribune in announcing Mr. Greeley's
The melancholy announcement ot the death
of the editor and founder ot the Tribune,
though for a few days lt has been expected by
his family and Intimate friends, lalla upon us
with all the shock ot a Budden calamity. He
had reached, ind- ed. a ripe old age, but time
had not laid Its withering touch up JD him.
H'B splendid constitu? ion easily bore i ne strain
of enormous labor. His mind was os ires!)
and strong and suggestive as In th? prime ot
Hie. His generous Impulses were unchllled
by dioheart-enlnpTjcperteooee. Tnrtwuii ???
trying campaign which has j mt closed, his
physical vigor, hla tact, his Ime.'leclual ncilvl
ty surprised even those who knew him best,
and seemed to promise many years 01 useful?
It 1B certain that no history of the mostcrltl
cal period lo our national life can ever be writ?
ten In which Horace Greeley shall not be a
cocisplcuous figure. But the noblest career lu
lils eyes was that which ls given up to others'
wants. The successful life was that which ls
worn out In conflict with wrong and error.
The only ambition worth following was ihe
ambition to alleviate human misery and leave
the world a little better than he found lt.
That he had done this was the consolation
which brightened his last days, and assured
him be bad not lived In vain.
It ls not for us In the first hour of our loss
to palut lila character or catalogue his virtues.
Although for several months we have missed
the Inspiration ol his presence ana the guid?
ance of his wise counsel, bis spirit has never
ceased to animate those chosen to continue
his works, and the close band ot sympathy be?
tween ihe culel and his assistants has uever
been broken. We leave bis praises lo ihe
poor, whom he succored, to ihe lowly, whom
he bas lifted up, to the slave, whose back he
saved Irom the lash, to the oppressed, wuose
wrongs he made hts owe.
The H-iraM, In Its editorial upon Greeley,
He has, In a mistaken aspiration for a high?
er field of usefulness, and power, and glory
than journalism, fallen a sacrifice to his politi?
cal ambition, ile had failed lo appreciate the
commandlog position which be bad secured
as a leading American Journalist, and leaving
lt lo pursue the ignis fatu.ua of ihe Presidency
he dropped the substance for the shadow of a
great distinction. Otherwise, the history and
ihe enduring rewards of Mr. Greeley's indus?
trious and useful career :.re full of encourage?
ment lo young men, wno, without capital,
personal influence or powerful friends, have
ine battle of life before them.
Tbe President and Mt*. Greeley's Death.
WASHINGTON, November 29.
Frequent Inquiries were made to-day by all
classes in regard to Horace Greeley's health,
and much sympathy was expressed lu his be?
halt. A report of nts death being in circula?
tion this evening, and having reached the
President, tie and bis family, as a token or
respect, did not attend a reception of the
diplomatic corps, given by the Secretary of
State, and lo which he was invited, but sent a
note explaining the cansa of his absence.
Hr. Greeley's Career,
The events of the life of Mr. Greeley have
been of late so otten laid before tbe public
that lt seems almost a work of supererogation
to rehearse them now. But a notice of bis
dealh would be incomplete without at least a
glance at what he himself often spoke of as
"a busy life."
Horace Greeley, the son of Zacoheus.Gree
ley, was born In Amherst, N. H., February 3d,
1811. At a very early age he became fond ot
reading, aud lt was related that before he was
ten years old he had read, chiefly by the light
ot pine knots, every readable book that be
contd borrow within seven miles of his father's
house. Bis first labor was on ibe farm, and
from the farm be went to the printing office and
learned the first principles ci Hie profession to
which his life was devoted. From the spring
ot 182G to ihe summer ot 1830 be was an appren?
tice in the office of the Northern Spectator, at
Rast Poultney; Vt., and lett IC only because the
paper suspended publication. At that time be
waa not twenty years cf age, but bis knowl?
edge ot political statistics and of party move?
ments and their leaden) was so extensive thai
he was regarded as an authority tn such mat?
ters. Alter working s wie months as a Jour?
neyman printer, be went to New York with a
scanty wardrobe and only ten dollars in his
pocket, in quest, of employment, which he
soon obtained. In 1833 he went into business
tor himself as a member of the firm which
published Ute first penny paper la the world,
and which failed In leset than three weeks. He
atterwards commenced the publication of the
New Yorker, and received so little from ll
that he was obliged to eke out a living
by p%iny-a-llnlog. At the end ol
seven years the New Yorker also failed. Bul
it was In 1810 that Mi'. Greeley's brilliant ca
reer as an editor really commenced, and bli
first notab e efforts were In ihe Log Caoln, e
weekly Journal, established to promote th?
election ot William Henry Harrison to thc
Presidency, and whlcti attained a wide circa
latlon. The success o ' this venture led to tL<
founding ot the New York Dally Tribune, th?
first number o? which was issued on the iou
of April, 1841. In the following au tn tn a the
weekly Tribune waB commenced, and with
the Dally and Weekly Tribune, his name bas
ever been most prominently identified. He
lived to make his paper a power in the land
one of the greatest if not the greatest news?
paper ot the day-and to the last he esteemed
the title ol 41 the founder of the New York
Tribune " the most honorable that could
be conferred upon him. In 1848 Ur. Gree?
ley was elected to Congress to fill a
vacancy, and during his Bbort service
as a Congressman he was'chiefly noted
for bis opposition to the abuses of the
mileage system, and bis devotion to the wel?
fare or the laboring classes. Previous to this
time he had become known an an enemy of
slavery, and he WBB ever ni ter warris distin?
guished as an Abolitionist. When a Republi?
can administration came Into power in the
Federal Government his paper was naturally
considered Ita organ, for it was perhaps, the'
most powerful agency in the consolidation of
the elements first known under the name of
the Republican party, and Its editor was
among the foremost of its leaders. He was at
first Inclined to allow a peaceable secession of
the t-outhern States from Ihe Union, butas
soon as war was declared he became a pro?
nounced advocate ol union by coercion, and
irom April, 1861, until April, 1865, the war
measures ol the Federal Government, includ?
ing emancipation, whloh he early advised,
bad no warmer supporter than Horace
A war man In the days of war, Mr. Greeley
believed tbac as soon as the war was over
peace should return to the country. Early,
theref ore, after the surrender ol the armies of
Lee, sud while Lincoln lay dead at Washing?
ton, he began to writ e In iavor of amnesty and
reconciliation. Under that banner he hence?
forth fought in the face of opposition that no
ordinary man would have withstood, and
when defeated In tbe great battle upon the
Issue of which all bis hopes depended he fell
Ul and died.
Mr. Greeley was married July 16,1836, in
Immanuel Church. Warrenton, N-rth Caro?
lina, by RPV. Wm. Norwood, to Miss Mary Y.
Cheney, of Warrenton, formerly of New York.
His wife was by profession a teacher. The
acquaintance had been formed ai3*?' Graham
House, and was continued, by correspondence
after Miss Cheney, in tbe pursuit of ber vo?
cation, had removed to North Carolina. The
lady ls understood to have possessed high in?
tellectual endowments, and ber domestic vir?
tues must have been great to have secured
such profound and permanent devotion as Mr.
Greeley showed to her.
Mr. Greeley's private character was sin?
gularly pure and free from everything of a
vicious or corrupting nature, even from bis
early youth and through all the vicissitudes of
fortune. When poverty pinched hard upon
bim, and his early life was one of toil and self
denial, bis innate integrity protected him
against the temptations that his genius opened
before him for corrupt practices. Hs temper,
it is true, was Irascible, but those who knew
him beat Indu'ged bis eccentricities, knowing
that under such an exterior existed a rich
mine of worth never obscured when duty de?
manded its treasures.
In bis private relations there was no man
more trusted and relied upon than Mr. Gree?
ley. His friendships were based upon true
worth, derived from bis keen but apparently
unsophisticated discernment of character, and
bis Influence and offices could be relied upon
In any emergency. He was singularly happy
in his domestic relations. His views of lt and
duties, his literary pursuits, even In their idio
syocracles, were in accord with the opinions
ot his wire, down to the dieter leal self-denial
that alleviated the poverty of his early efforts.
Mr. Greeley's religious belief waathat of a
Unitarian Rpstorationist. He says In a lerer
to the Rev. J. M. Austin : "I believe that the
moral character formed in this life will be
that in which we shall awake In the Hie to
come, and that many die so deeply stained
and tainted by lives ol transgression and de?
pravity that a tedious and painful discipline
must precede and prepare for their admission
lo the realms ot eternal purity aud bliss." ?
