Sunday Morning, February 25,1868.
Uni-reMlty of Soutli Carolina.
The surest and speediest -way of
rehabilitatisig this city is the building
up of the University in "its midst.
Columbia has every natural advantage
requisite to make it a university town
_railroad facilities, beauty of scene?
ry, and healthiness of location. The
University, however, in its. present
state, can do little towards the end
we have in view. It must be en?
larged. In addition to its literary
and scientific schools, it should
have a law school, a theological
school, and a medical school. A
law school is a great desideratum in
the State. There is no such thing
within it 3 bounds. A theological
school, independent of creeds, pro?
posing as its object the laying of a
foundation for a dogmatic course in
sectarian schools, would supply an?
other want The need of a medical
school is almost as great, and the
advantages for the establishment of
such a school are innumerable. Free
negroes and the artisans from the
manufactories with which the middle
and up country must, ere long, be
filled, will crowd the hospitals, thus
placing a quantity of clinical mate?
rial within easy reach. The Medical
College of Charleston "would not be
in the way. About two hundred
students are usually in attendance at
the CharlestonjCollege. It would be
easy to attract these and many more
to Columbia, by opening under the
wing of the University a medical
school, and entrusting it to proper
hands. All the schools together would
bring to the town not less than half a
thousand students, and with tho^e
students no small amount of money.
Columbia would derive both profit
and importance from such an addition
to her population; and our citizens
will fling away a splendid chance if,
with this prospect before them, they
do not use every effort to fnrther the
scheme which we propose.
Of course, we have other reasons
than the above material one for de?
siring the establishment of these
schools. But we have advocated the
step from a merely abilitarian point
of view alone, because the other
arguments in its favor are so obvions
as to render it unnecessary that we
should dwell upon them.
Letter from Hon. B. V. Perry.
We publish this morning a letter
Hon. B. F. Perry, United States Se?
nator from South Carolina. It is a
calm and dispassionate review of the
political situation with regard to the
policy of the restoration of the States
lately in rebellion against the United
States Government, and Iiis views
expressed through the columns of
the National Intelligencer, the paper
having the confidence of the Presi?
dent of the United States, must have
weight and importance.
He has done right-done what no
other Senator has done-given the
true position of the State who con?
ferred upon him her highest honor,
and we have no doubt but his letter
will have its due effect in all the States
of the Union where the adherence to
the Constitution and the laws forms
the ground-work of their govern?
ment. He has nobly vindicated
South Carolina, and whilst a con?
sistent and sincere friend of the Union
through all the assaults made upon it
by his State, he unequivocally gives
his testimony to tho sincerity and
patriotism of her people. Such a
document, from such a man, cannot
fail to have its just weight and influ?
ence in every State in the Union.
We had the pleasure of meeting
Senator Perry on Friday evening, on
his return from Washington; he was
on hus way home, and left ye? Aerday
morning. He is quite hopeful, and
agrees with us that Andrew Johnson
is master of the position. He be
Heves that, ere long, the Southern
representation in beth Houses of
Congress wiH be admitted to their
rightful position in the councils of
the nation, and that through the
firmness of the President, his patri?
otism and adhesion to the Constitu?
tion and the laws of the country, the
radicals will be utterly defeated and
routed. He gave us more hope than
anything we have yet read or heard.
The Memphis Tribune has a long
article on the administration of affairs
in that city. It calls loudly for some
action on the part of the Legislature
which may give better security to life
The Hlghoat Authority.
A despatch to the XewYork Herald
gives us an item of importance, in a
recent decision of the United States
Supreme Court During the late
war, all cases from t?e rebellious
States were laid aside by the court; but
now, tbe rebellion being terminated,
it was proposed to resume considera?
tion of such cases, and on this ques?
tion all the Associate Justices voted
in the affirmative, Chief Justice Chase
alone dissenting. This decision is in
effect a legal endorsement by the
highest judicial tribunal of the re?
public of President Johnson's posi?
tion that the lately rebellious State?
now occupy their former position in
the Union, have not, according to the
ultra radical theory, fallen back to
the territorial condition.
THE NATIONAL FINANCE.-Business
at the North hesitates, while the
financial policy of the Government
remains unsettled. It is urged in
"Washington that action upon the
funding bill be taken, and that the
revenue will be' ample for all pur?
poses, and allow a large sinking fund,
if the financial scheme of the" inter?
nal revenue committee be adopted.
The amouut desirable hy the scheme
is estimated at $500,000,000. If such
is the fact, it is a heavier tax upon the
people, but, if admitted, the South
must be supplied with currency, if
crops of staples are to be made and
moved. The limit to the national
currency of 300,000,000 is nearly
reached, but it is considered quite
certain that Congress will authorize
an extension of the limit so far as may
be necessary for the circulation of the
South. _ _
TEK FUNERAL OF GEN. ELLIOTT.
The Charleston papers state that there
was a large and respectable nttend
auce of grief-stricken individuals at
St. Michael's Church, on the 23d, to
witness the funeral ceremonies per?
formed on the body of the late Gen.
Stephen Elliott. The funeral services
were feelingly read by tho Rev. Paul
Keith. The body of the General will
be taken to Beaufort, S. C., where it
will bo deposited in the family burial
TAE NAVAL RACE.-The great naval
race between the steamers "Winooski
and Algonquin, of which so much has
been written md said, came off on
Long Island Sound last week. The
result was in favor of the Winooski,
she beating her competitor so badly
that it was decided not to run the
entire distance. The object of the
race was to test the merits of the
engines, which are constrncted on
RUSSIA AND THE UNITED STATES.
The Moscow Gazette gives a descrip?
tion of a banquet given by the mer?
chants of that city to the American
Legation, in honor of the arrival of
Gen. Clay, Envoy Extraordinary and
Minister Plenipotentiary of the
United States of America. It speaks
with great enthusiasm of the toasts
drank to the Emperor Alexander, to
the President of the United States,
and to the continuance of good feel
ing'between Russia and the American
ACCIDENTAL DEATH.-We leam that
Mr. J. M. Terry, of this place, was
accidentally killed at the Iron Works,
at Hurricane Shoals, on Friday last.
The pistol of Mr. Terry fell from his
person while stooping, and being dis?
charged by the fall, the ball passed
through his head, killing him instant?

passage of a resolution declaring that
the p*eople of Tennessee are excluded

When our civil war began, or a
little later, many Americans convert?
ed their property into gold, und sent
it to England. The amount "of mo?
ney thus thrown into English busi?
ness is variously estimated-the high?
est figures being $500,000,000, and
the lowest $300,000,000.
THE CHOLEKA.- The subject of the
cholera is claiming the attention of
the New York authorities. Like every
other measure in that city in which
officials are interested, it is made a
lever of political plunder and power.
The politicians squabble and the

WASHINGTON, D. C., February 17, 1866.
' EOITOBS PHONIX: An interval of leisure
in tho midst of pressing bus i nc H s duties,
allows mo to gossip with your readers a
little while about men and things in the
national metropolis. During the past ten
days, I have from time to time boen observ?
ing, with admiring eyes, the colossal pro
portions and agile performances of thc
great Nack elephant now on exhibition daily
at tho Capitol, under tho special charge of
Messrs. Sumnor and Wilson, with their
assistant ring-masters. It is a good show,
and a cheap one, too, and no unfair dis?
criminations are made in it against the
Caucasian race, as in the shows before th<
war, when colored persona wero admit toe
for half price. Hore, all are equal. Jona*
than and Cuffee, and Jonathan's lady and
Cuffte's lady, sit side by side in thc samt
gallery, and thc, great American caglt
(once said to be of tho grey species, bu
now, moulting his feathers and coming oii
I black,) looks down and spreads his wing;
approvingly over the happy display d'
"liberty, equality and fraternity." I wat

of Reverdy Johnson against tho pre??se^
amendment of thc Constitution, and cut

many "American citizens of African ds

and dreaming probably of the past joys ol
the corn-shucking or "the Saturday night
frolic; for evidently most of them were of
recent importation from*tho corn-field.
Bancroft's commemorative oration on the
lato President Lincoln was one of the great
events of the past'week. Not having been
fortunato enough to receive a ticket of in?
vitation, I was "outside in thc cold," and
can give no description of the occasion. I
understand that tho Representative Hall
was densely crowdo'l- indeed, many who
had tickets of admission, found that, like
the Southern members, they had only th?
right to enter, without being ablo to exer?
cise that right. The oration was sold
through thc streets, at ten cents per copy,
before its delivery commenced, and man;
thousands wore reading it at their fire-sides
whilst it was being delivered by tho orator.
It is, of course, an able and well-written
oration, for it could not otherwise bc thc
production of thc pen of Mr. Bancroft; bm
it is very much like the play of Hamlet,
with tho character cf Hamlet left ou;.. It
has less of Mr. Lincoln than of anything
else in it. Several of thc foreign Ministen
have taken offence at its disparaging allu
sions to their Governments or loading men

And the Minister of the Mexican Republic

t is a very pretty quarrel as it stands, am
so I will leave it.
Mr. Bancroft's oratioa is conservative, s
far as he expresses himself relative to poli
tics, and I heard him say to Governo
Perry, at the President's reception, oi
Tuesday night, "I want aU the people i
South Carolina to understand, that whils
I have been in favor of abolition, yet I ai
utterly opposed to confiscation or any othe
harsh measures against tho South, an.
desire earnestly the immediate admissio
of the Southern Senators and member*
and the full restoration of the Souther
States to thc Union."
Governor Perry has been herc for som
time, closing up the attaint of his Prov
sional Governorship. He has placed h:
credentials in tho bauds of Senator Revet
dy Johnson for presentation, Ho expect
to leave for home in a fow days, but
learned from Judge Patterson to-day tin
the Governor will be siimmoned to appen
before the Reconstruction Committee o
Monday, and will probably be kept hei
for some days on that account. A moi
able and well written article on reconstru?
tion appeared over his signature in th
morning's Intelligencer, and has been tl
subject, to-day, of many very complimen
arv remarks by conservative men, as wc
from the North as tho South.
General Robert E. Lee arrived here la;
night, having been summoned to testi:
before tho Reconstruction Committee. H
Eresence creates quite a sensation, and tl
ighest regard is expressed for the gre:
and glorious man, who so well deservei
though ho could not achieve, success.
Fred. Douglas lectured iu one of tl
Presbyterian Churches here on Tuesdi
night, on "assassination and its lessons
to a crowded audience. Chief Justi
Chase, and Judges Kelly and Wilmot (1
of the proviso) graced the occasion wi!
their presence, and assisted in tho cer
monies of the ovening-Be gustibus m
' est, dee. Tho affair is understood to ha
been gotten up for tho purpose of givii
significance and endorsement to tho la
impertinent visit of Fred, and some oth
darkies to President Johnson, or to consc
Fred, for thc utter failure of his attem
to worry the President, and for tho gent?
rebuff' which ho received at his hand
The President has been heard to say, th
- his patience and temper were uover so s
vorely tried as upon this occasion. Tho
?iresent, speak in high terms of tho oxci
ent command over himself which he mai
fested, and the ability with which ho foil
the purposes of those whoso cats-paws t
delegation were. The lecture has had t
unfortunate effect of dividing, r.nd m
destroy the church in whoso house
worship, by consent of tho pastor, but n
of his people, it was delivered. A gontl
man told me that ono member had abroa
loft the church, whoso annual contril
t ions was over $1,000.

nearly a year confined in Fortress Monrc

Her interview with the President was o
of the most beautiful and touehing seer
i1 ever witnessed, and would make a p
turo equal to that of Jennie Deans ben
the Queen. At its close, the Presid?
handed lier a document, which, from 1
bright and happy smile, when she receh
it, I hope contained good nows for her a
her husband. She was at Fortress Mom
and saw lier husband about two wet
since; and also saw, but did not have 1
privilege of speaking to, President Da^
Slie describes him as looking very mr
enfeebled aud broken down.
Tho President's reception, on Tuest
night, was attended by about 2,000perso
half of whom were ladies. Amongst 1
celebrities, there were Mr. Bancroft, G
Hanks, Secretary Mcculloch and Mr. R
meed. The di??t?y of dress and jewelry
was not at all striking, bat I suppose the
ladies were afraid to wear their host, lest
in the crowd their dresses might be torn
and their jewelry stolen. One of tho most
brilliant and best dressed ladies I saw
there, was Mrs. Sae P. King, who was es?
corted by Governor Perry.
I learned, 'to-day, that the Tennessee
delegation will shortly be received, and it
is thought that this is the entering wedge
to further conciliating action. I know
that the President is very hopeful of an
early and satisfactory adjustment of pre?
sent issues, and expects confidently to see
all the Southern members in their places
before the close of tho present session.
Col. C. J. Elford, of Greenville, is hore,
endeavoring to obtain the favorable aud
final action of tho President in relation to
the pardons from South Carolina, not here?
tofore acted upon. He had a large number
of cases in his charge as attorney, and
being informed by a distinguished gentle?
man of Washington, that (tases in which
pardons had not beon granted, were re?
garded, in the present state of things, to
be in great peril, and should have immedi?
ate attention, he obtained the approval
of Governors Orr and Perry, and under?
took to have all thc South Carolina par?
dons, as far as he could, favorably dis?
posed of. He found 400 cases suspended
and laid aside, after being approved by the
Attornoy-General. These he has succeed?
ed in bringing before the President and
has bad them signed by him. They will
shortly receive the signature and seal of
the Secretary of State, and bo delivered to
CoL E. to cany to South Carolina. Forty
cases, under 13th exception, have not yet
left tho Attorney-General's office, but an
order was obtained to-day for them to be
put in course of completion, and thore are

sons, cannot be successfully dealt with at
A new book by ox-Senator. Ac, Foote,
entitled the "War of the Rebellion," is just
out, and is having a good run. It is very
I readable, being for thc most part a well
written sketch of the author's doing and
associations in tho Federal and Confede?
rate Congress. It is very severe on those
whom Foote disliked, and Benton, Pierce,
Davis and Yancey aro handled without
gloves; while he as warmly eulogizes those
to whom his feelings were kind. I think
that a skotch of Foote himself, by some
discriminating and impartial writer, would
form a most interesting and amusing ad?
dition to the book.
The internal revenue, for the upper part
of the State of South Carolina, is to be as?
sessed and collected as soon as the organi?
zation of the offices can ho completed. No
taxes will be assessed or collectod on any
subjects of taxation prior to 30th Mav,
1865, which is the date of the establish?
ment of tho collection districts in South
Carolin;;, except the taxes on incomes,
which will be collected for the incomes of
1864, and since. All manufactures, dis
: tilled liquors, and other subjects of taxa?
tion, produced or accruing since 30th May,
will be assessed and taxed. It is thought
in the departments and elsewhere her?,
I that the oath of ofiice will be so modified, <

iv venue officers, that there will be no dif?
ficulty in obtaining Southern men who can

THK CIRCUS.-To-morrow is the great
day which has been looked forward to with
so much eagerness by the young folks,
and a number of old ones, too, we verily
believe. Castello'u circus company will
give two exhibitions-in thc afternoon at
2, aud the evening at 7. It was tho inten?
tion of the management to havo remained
here at least two days, and then go on a
tour through the upper Districts; but,
owing to the impossibility of obtaining
transportation, that idea had to be aban?
doned. The Augusta, Savannah and
Charleston papers speak in favorable
terms of thc company, aud we have no
doubt that all who attend will be perfectly
satisfied. We would advise ladies and
children to attend the afternoon exhibi?
tion, as the crowd is seldom so large aa at
