Sunday Morning, January 21, 1866.
Tho Ricnuiond Dispatcli says that
portion of the country, known as
"the South" embraces 850,000 square
milos, and is aa large as Great Bri?
tain, France, Austria, Prussia and
Spain, with a most productive soil
ami genial climate; with staple pro?
ductions which none of those great
countri? can grow; with 3,000 miles
of coast line, indented with bays and
crowded with islands; and its vast
centre watered by the Mississippi,
into whose bosom are poured 36,000
miles of tributary streams.
The total agricultural productions
of thc United States for 1850 amount?
ed to 1,104,000,000; of this sum, the
North produced, in round numbers,
6,400,000, and the South 5,600,000.
Population of the North in 1860 was
13,527,220; population of the South,
9,664,656. The North had a defi?
ciency in 1850 of agricultural produc?
tions to the value of $6,105,594; the
South a surplus o? $124,855,712; or
each person at the North consumed
thirty-eight cents more than he pro?
duced; at the South, each person pro?
duced $12.90 more than he consumed.
- These facts are now referred to for
thc purpose of showing how idle it is
to despond of the futui'e of a region
which possesses such enormous ele?
ments of natural wealth, and whose
exports at the period above mentioned
were three times as great as those ol
the whole United States ten years
after the Revolutionary war. Thc
recuperative powers of such a regior
must be perfectly incalculable. With
the introduction of capital andimmi
gration from the North and fron
Europe, all traces of the late war wil
be obliterated in five j ears. Even
year that succeeds will witness such !
march of prosperity, and populatioi
as even the "Western States have neve
- eqnalled. With the removal of slave
ry, the energies and enterprise of th
whole world will seek a field of actioi
within our borders. If we will oui,
give up the barren pursuits of poli
tics, and turn in to hard work, th

Rev. J. J. O'Connell deliven
a lecture in Hibernian Hall, Charle

is highly spoken of by the press

Mr. O'Connell is a close thinker,
logical reasoner, and withal as pei

University o* 80 ut ll Carolin?.
MESSRS. EDITORS: It will be of in?
terest tc tho people of the State to
know how their most distinguished
institution is prospering. By an Act
of the Legislature, the system of in?
struction has been very materially
changed, and the South Carolina Col?
lege, within whose walls some of lier
greatest men, who grappled with the
abstrusest questions of the pulpit and
the State, formed their minds, is now
the University of South Carolina.
Thus the collegiate course of instruc?
tion has been abolished, which needs
to be particularly noticed.
The statutes, as adopted by tho
University of South Carolina, are,
with little exception, the same which
govern the University of Virginia.
Thomas Jefferson, the celebrated pro?
jector of the latter institution, brought
forward the plea, in favor of the plan
he proposed, that a student who could
not enter, being rejected on examina?
tion, and afterwards should distin?
guish himself, was an argument that
he should have been admitted with?
out an examination. The statutes of
the South Carolina College required
a student to stand an examination
before entrance, and, if able to enter,
he was compelled to go through a
j prescribed course before graduation.
I During the recent war, all young men
capable of bearing arms were called
into the field, and thus their studies
were necessarily neglected. On their
return, they who had originally had a
course of education in view, and
whose fortunes were not too shat?
tered, wished to renew their strides.
They could not enter the South Ca?
rolina College because of the exami?
nation, and possibly on account of
the prescribed course of Latin and
Greek; and here Jefferson's argument
can be applied as exactly illustrative
of the condition of these young men.
The university system entirely reme?
dies all these inconveniencies. No
examination is required of applicants,
and the student is allowed to select
any course of study he maj' choose.
Thus a student who has neglected his
studies, even for four years, may take
such studies as he may be able to
prosecute, by degrees take up others,
and finally go through a course as
high as that which required gradua?
tion when the institution was a Col?
lege-nay, higher. Another objec?
tion to the College was the length of
time requisite for graduation, which
was four years, if entering the Fresh?
man Class. Now, a student who ap?
plies himself can take a diploma on
any branch iu two years. What is
also to be noticed in the university
bv ^vhich a student's knowledge if
'determined-whether he shall or shall
The Faculty now consists of sis
professors, two of whom have beec
recently elected-Hon. R. W. Barn
well and General E. P. Alexander, f
11 distinguished member of Genera
Robert E. Lee's staff. Prof. Barn
well was, in former years, Presiden'
11 of the College, and is widely kn O wi
as a distinguished politician, having
been Senator in Congress. Profes
sors Joseph LeConte, John LeConte
Reynolds, LaBorde and Hivers ar*
known as gentlemen of high standing
11 and ability. The exercises have com
menced; the number of students at
tending is somewhat small, but b
increasing. The University bids fai:
to be one of the finest institution
South. It is expected, ere long, thu
there shall be a school of law, am
also medicine, which will- put it 01
[ I the same footing with the University
of Virginia. May South Carolins
cherish her University, if not her Col
lege. * ROEGUM.

REPORTED CONSPIRACY FOR THE
RESCUE OK MR. DAVIS.-From parties
who came up on the Norfolk boat
last evening we learn that there was
much excitement at Fortress Monroe,
on Sunday night, in consequence of
an order trebling the sentinels and
raising the draw-bridges of the for?
ex-Confederates there- the agent
of the National Express among the
rest-were, by the order of the Sec?
retary of War, to leave with an hour's
notice. A discovered conspiracy for
the rescue of Mr. Davis was the
alleged cause for this.
f Richmond Dispatch, 10///.
C(>ri( <.i)oniU nce o? the P>lcenl?,
WASHiNOT-on, January 15, 1866.
I learn, on the moat reliable authority,
that tho Congress are getting more deter?
mined in their radical policy. Many of
the member? went home during thc Christ?
mas recess. They found their people at
fever heat, and they have como back much
fiercer than they went. Tho difficulties
around the President thicken every day.
The resolution of the House of Representa?
tives, passed a few days since, announcing
that the army should not bo withdrawn
from tho South until tho sense of Con?
gress was first had on the subject, is ono
of great significance. If anything api>er
tains exclusively to the Executive, it is the
control of the army, and the regulation of
military movements. Yet, the radical ma?
jority in the House evince a disposition to
tear from him this thc greatest flower of
his prerogative. As a commentary on this
resolution, I learn that tho President has
countermanded an order, previously given,
for the withdrawal of a portion of thc army
The Senate have given the Committee on
Reconstruction authority to bring persons
and pipers before it. This ?ill insure a
long story of great outrages at the South,
and thus an excellent campaign document
will be prepared for the next elections^
Th6 business of amending the Constitution
is becoming an epidemic. The Senator
from Oregon, Williams, wants a little clause
of his own hatching put in thc Constitu?
tion, prohibiting the Congress from over
paying for emancipated slaves.
Trumbull's bill-introduced in the Se?
nate, to enlarge thc powers of the Freed?
man's Bureau-has a clause; of much inte?
rest to your sca-ishmd planters. His bill
! provides, in tho fifth section, "that thc
1 possessory titles, granted in pursuance of
Major-General Sherman's special held or?
der, dated at Savannah, January IC, 18C5,
are hereby confirmed and made valid." It
is impossible to say whether this bill will
become, a law or not. Trumbull is not con?
sidered an extreme radical, and the bill
coming from him makes it look more
Gen. Howard's report, as Chief of tho
Freedman's Bureau, represents that the
negroes arc subject to more outrages in
South Carolina than any other State. That
is a very bad reputation to have here, and
calculated to do the State much harm.
Another bill of Senator Trumbull's, to
secure to the freedmen South their civil
rights, is the special order for to-day. I
take it for granted that some such bill
The Secretary of War, in a recent official
opinion, states," as Ids judgment, that war
still exists in this country, though hostili?
ties have ceased. On thc oilier baud, Rever?
dy Johnson quotes, in bis recent speech in
the Senate, from the decision of tho Su?
preme Court, to show that Congress could
not declare war against a State. In con?
nection with this opinion of the Attorney
General, that war still exists, is an impor?
tant order from tien. Grant, to tile effect
that all persons connected with tho army,
or acting undermilitary orders, are exempt
from the jurisdiction of the State Courts.
'l here was some pretence of an assassin
undertaking to kill Senator Wade. It
seems a ferocious fellow, as the account
goes, "scowling horribly," demanded
Wade's recommendation jfyX an office, or
ohice-teekers, bnk tb?% man wa- certainly
I more demonstrative than his tribe gene
l I rally is. The Chronicle cried out that this
was another manifestation of the Wilkes
Booth spirit. But it turned out that the
so-called assassin was a drunken rowdy
from Massachusetts, who had been turned
out of a situation at the Navy Yard.

"WASHIKGTON ly EM H.-Tho groot
bugbear of the day is repudiation of
the Federal debt. Though there is
little cause of apprehension of this
disaster, yet the House, at the open?
ing of the session, guarded against it
by a declaratory resolution, which was
adopted with only ono dissenting
voice. But an alarm has been raised,
not so much on jcouut of any fear
that the South will come into Con?
gress with a force equal to the task,
and a disposition to use their strength,
or the greater and newer dread of
a rising faction in the North. There
is said to be ar. organization now in
