tho war, but now repaired, and trains

N. B. As a general rule, trains over
these roads run at a rate of speed
varying from ten to twenty-five miles
an hour. A fair average, except
under peculiar circumstances, weald
be about twelve miles, including
stoppages. Fares are high, from six
to eight cents, and not unfrequently,
on short Unes, ten and sometimes
twelve. Eating-houses on a majority
of the roads have been re-opened,
and are usually well supplied. The
traveler should, however, bear in
mind the condition of the country,
and provide himself with a "snack,"
so as to be on the safe side. Hoads
only partially operated are being ra?
pidly pushed through, and there is a
gratifying prospect of general re?
sumption of their business. Their
principal want is new rolling stock,
?fcc. EDWARD H. HALL.
NORTHERN MEN IN THE SOUTH.-A
correspondent of the Boston Pott,
writing from the South, says: "I
feel safe in saying that if the truth in
regard to the condition of the South?
ern States, socially and financially,
was fully comprehended by Northern
capitalists, the South would be amply
supplied with all needed capital to
develop her wonderful resources
resources beyond anything in the
North, or even the South, dreamed of
before the war. He says that when
about to start on his tour, many
friends attempted to dissuade him
from his purpose, urging that it was
dangerous for a Northern maj:, at the
present time, to travel in the South.
"Yet," says he, "I have traveled quite
extensively in the South, conversed
freely with all classes of Southern
people, with quite as great a sense of
personal safety and comfort as you
can possibly feel in walking from
your sanctum to your house in Bos?
ton. Indeed, I feel called upon to
bear my testimony to the hearty
c tiiahty and uniform kindness with
which I was everywhere received and
Such is no doubt the experience, if
not the confession, of all Northern
men who come South and behave
PEACE, BY Am., MEANS.-"Wc are
glad to read such articles as tho sub?
joined in the semi-official organ:
"We are glad to hear that tho aldo
soldier, Gen. Weitzel, who has just
been relieved from duty on our
Mexican frontier, does not 'consider
the country watered by the Rio
Grande worth going to war about. '
On this point, we are in perfect ac?
cord with General Weitzel. lu fact,
there are but few things in this mun?
dane sphere worth going to war about.
One of these things was at stake in
our late national contest. But when,
in view of that contest, we consider
what war is-when we reflect upon
its fearful losses, and the woes it
leaves behind it-we shall not talk of
it lightly, nor be willing to plunge
into it for any cause but the highest.
Were some men's views of affairs fol?
lowed up, we might have half a dozen
wars on our hands at this moment,
with as many of the nations of the
world; and before they were wound
up, we should probably have equally
good causes for at least a dozen more. "
[New York Times.
FBOM THE SOUTH.-We have just
met with a gentleman who has been
on a trip through Tennessee and
Georgia, from whom we gather somo
?/cry interesting items. We are al?
ways pleased to obtain reliable facts,
is it is from such data that wc can at
?ll times most correctly judge of the
future. He informs us that through
Georgia, Alabama and Arkansas there
will be but little corn planted this
spring; that the attention of all plant
srs is being directed to cotton grow?
ing, as they are under the impression
it will be the most remunerative crop,
lu many localities, there will not bo
lorn enough grown to meet home
?onsnmption, ?ujd not any to sell.

THE LATEST NEWS FBOM FRANCE.
Louis Napoleon will have Mexico
when he gets ready, provided we do
lot undertake to hurry him. That
s not very precise; but it is, perhaps,
is satisfactory as was to be expected.
But, though the French soldiers may
not soon depart from our sister Re?
public, the French money is almost
jone already; and there are not geese
mough in sll Europe to take another
oan like the last. Meantime, let us
seep hands off, and note how tho
>race of Emperors will next attempt
o "comble the deficit."

Valuable and Extensive Water Power
in the City of Columbia for Sale.
Ordered by the Legislature of South Caro?
THE undersigned Commissioners, ap?
pointed by the General ; Assembly of
South Carolina, at its late session, ?will
receive bids for the valuable WATER
POWER known as tho COLUMBIA CANAL,
until thc first day of April next.
Thc Canal is eight thousand six hundred
and fifty-four yards long, and tho average
fall for thc first threo miles is fourteen feet,
commencing at ten feet at Upper street, in:
Columbia, ami attaining nineteen feet one
inch at Bridge street; the remaining two i
miles, from Bridge street to its laonth,:
commences at nineteen feet ten,inchcs, and
attains a fall of twenty-five feet. Fine
building sites exist betw?on tho canal and
river, giving complete protection to build?
ings and machinery from freshets. The
State, through the undersigned, will con?
vey tho canal and all its appurtenances,
together with tho right of way for sixty
feet on each sido of the centre of the canal
to the purchaser. Compensation to the^
adjacent land owners for the right of way,
to be made by the purchaser, on the same
just and equitable terms that the right of
way was conveyed to the Greenville and
Columbia Railroad Company, by Act of
15th December, 1845.
This power has been accurately surveyed
by Prof. John LeConte, of the South Caro?
lina University; his report, together with
the Act of the.General Assembly and this
advertisement, has been print?d, and raay
bo obtained by addressing Jas. G. Gibbes,
Esq., Mayor of Columbia.
Prof. LeConte estimates that by doubling
the original capacity of tho canal, as re?
quired by the Act, that the power secured '
to Bridge street will bo 355 horse-power,
the average head being fourteen feet; arid
from Bridge street to its mouth 532 horse?
power, with an average head of twenty-one
refit, and a Current of ono foot per second.
With a current of two feet per second, the
powers would be 710 and 1,064 horse-power;
and if the machinery is not run at night,
thc power may bo doubled by accumulat?
ing water in reservoirs.
kiAs tho supply of water," says Prof.
LeConte, "whicn may he turned from the
river into tho canal at its . head, is almost
unlimited, the canal can be enlarged to an
extent commensurate with thc demand for
water power. If desired, it may be made
to supply water to tho extent of 5,000horse?
power or more. In fact, by very simple
arrangements, one-third or one-half, or
even more, of tho whole water in Broad
Rfv?r, might ho turned into. Such an en?
This water power is literally within the
city of Columbia. The city is now supplied
by railroads penetrating nearly every Dis?
trict in thc State, furnishing the produc?
tions of cotton, rice, wheat, beef and pro?
visions, with litt!.: expense at this important
Tho city of Columbia is supplied with gas
and good water, the climate is salubrious
and healthy, being above the miasmatic
region, and invites, forpleasant settlement
and society, merchants, artisans, mecha?
nics, manufacturers and persons of for?
tune and leisnre.
The property will be sold on tho following
conditions, to" wit: 1st. Tho purchaser
shall, within two years from the date of
conveyance, completo tho widening and
deepening of said canal to at least twice ita
origininal capacity. (Its original capacity
was fifteen feet wide at top, eight feet at
bottom and four feet in depth; to double
it according to Prof. LeContc's report, it
will require tho removal of 36,107 cubic
yards of earth, and 3,200 cubic yards of
stono to Bridge street, and from Bridge
street to its mouth 22,170 cubic yards of
earth-no stone to bo removed.) That tho
same shall always bo kept open fer boating
purposes, freo of charges, to whero it is
now used. (This will not interfere at all
with the water power for driving machine?
ry, as boats only descend as far as the first
lock, near Upper street. )
That tho water shall not become stag?
nant, and that it shall not be used for other
than hydraulic purposes.
That one-third of the sum bid shall bo
paid within thirty days after notice of ac- |
cepfcance of bid; one-third at ihe expiration
of six months therefrom, and tho remain?
ing third at the expiration of twelve
months. Titles delivered on payment of
first instalment, and that tho title herein
proposed to bo conveyed shall revert to the
State, on default being made of any of the
foregoing conditions, including payment
of all the purchase money.
Tliis water power with its location, in the
judgment of the Commissioners, is un?
equaled by any in tho State of South Caro?
lina, and not surpassed by any in the
Parties sending bids will please furnish
thc Commissioners with references as to
the ability promptly to mako good the
