Thc State Printing.
Wc aro averse, on principle, to
bringing private affairs before the
readers of the Phoenix, and it is with
reluctance we do so now; but circum?
stances demand, in our own justifica?
tion, that we should bubrnit to tho
Legislature, and our readers gene?
rally, a plain statement of facts with
regard to the State printing.
In response to an advertisement
calling for proposals for the public
printing, to bo handed in on Monday,
the 26th ult., published by the Clerks
of both houses of the Legislature,
the proprietor of tho Columbia
Phoenix presented his bid at the time
specified. It had been rumored that
the work was, hereafter, to be "lead?
ed," instead of "solid," ns decided
by the Legislature at the Tegular ses?
sion of 1864. lu order to receive
definite information on this point,
application was made to the Chair?
man and ono of the Committee on
Printing, who stated that the work
was to be solid, and the bid of the
proprietor of the Phoenix was based
upon, as he thought, this authorita?
tive information. The day after tho
bids were called for-on Tuesday,
the 27th ultimo-a bid was submitted
by the proprietor of the Soulh Caro?
linian. Thc two biers were considered
by the committee, aud tho printing
awarded to the proprietor of the
Carolinian-his bid, as was stated by
the committee, being the lowest-ac?
cording to their estimate, about $300
for thc entire work.
The printing to be executed is clas
* sified as follows :
Bills, in "pica"-six by eleveu
Temporary journals, calendars, kc,
in "long primer"-1,705 ems per
Permanent work-journals, reports
and resolutions, ?kc., 4 'long primer"
1,705 ems to the page-1,000 copies.
Acts, (with side notes.)
Pule and figure work, kc.
An examination of the temporary
work shows that tho journals, as now
printed, arc leaded, making a differ?
ence of ten lines to the page, thus
extending ten pages-the average
length of the journals-to fourteen
at an extra cost to the State, at the
present printer's bid, of "$10 per day
on each journal, or $20 daily for thc
two. This is an actual advance upon
l ' a cost of the work, as proposed to be
executed hy Hie proprietor of the Phoe?
nix, of about seventeen dollars per day.
In this calculation, we make no re?
ference to calendars, reports and
similar work, executed daily-being
satisfied with the evidence furnished
in the heavier work. In addition tc
this, the pages of thc journals arc
often shorter than required by thc
contract, and, consequently, the wort
is extended over a greater number oi
A further examination will skon
that the "bills"-a portion of them al
least-instead of being eleven inche.'
long, as required by the terms of thc
contract, are only nine inches, thus
increasing the number of pages-vid
tho bills "to incorporate Soulh Caro
lina Loan and Trust Company," "tc
lend credit of thc State to tho Greeu
ville aud Columbia Railroad Compa
ny," "relative to insolvent debtors,'
and others, making five pnjges, (bul
according to custom charged as six,'
which if of the required length woulc
only have made four pages-a loss tc
thc State of four dollars and eighty
cents on each bill.
The assertions we make can bc
verified by an examination of UK
work, which, in justice to the ex
printer, is respectfully solicited
Again, the printing, according to tin?
terais of the contract, is to be prompt
ly executed and ia a workman-liki
manner. The . frequent delays t<
which the Legislature has been sub
jected, the numerous errors in th
printing and the deviation from th
express terms of tho contract, subjec
the present contractor to a forfeiture
of t hc work, as it was positively state?
that he was fully able to comply wit!
said terms. We publish the abov
facts purely in self-justification, a
well as to inform tho Legislature an<
the public of tho true condition o
affairs pertaining to tho public print
ing. Put the proprietor of the Phoenix
deems'it necessary to make a corree
statement in relation to his cours
touching this work. The Carolinian
of the 11th instant, plainly intimate
that printers employed in the Pha ni.
office were prevented from transfer
ring their services to tte Carolinian^
office, - where they were so much
needed. This is a false imputation,
as three printers employed in this
office did go to work for thc public
printer; a fourth, for what ho thought
the best of reasons, declined the situ?
ation and went to Charleston.
- Further: It was rumored in thc
House of Representatives, ou Thurs?
day, that application had been made
at the Piioniat office, by parties con?
nected with the Carolinian, for assist?
ance to carry on the necessary work
j of . the Legislature. This rumor was
I unfounded, no application ever having
I been made. State work was done in
the Phonix office on Monday last, at
the request of a member of tho Le?
gislature. It was au important bill,
? which he found it impossible to have
printed by the present contractor for
the work. But, even were it true
which, as we have said, it is not
that application, had been made to
this office, it proves conclusively that
the printer obtained the work under
false pretences, and that he was not
able to comply with the terms of the
As wo said at the beginning of this
article, it is with reluctance that we
thrust private affairs before our read?
ers, and our past course, under seve?
ral provocations from tlie same source,
proves this; but forbearauce ceases tc
be a virtue under persistent slandci
ReRponuc to Hon. ll. F. Perry.
"We notice in the "Wilmington Jour
nal a long letter from ex-Gov. Swain
of North Carolina, in response to th<
letter ol Hon. B. F. Perry, originally
published in the Phonix. In thi:
letter, Gov. Swain discusses, at som<
length, the "direct tax" question
With regard to the question of repre
sentation, Gov. Swain says:
"I repeat, therefore, that the thin
section, iii connection with the tes
oath, is a double disfranchisement o
nine-tenths of the people o? Nortl
Carolina, aud that I do not believ
that a majority of the Committee c
Fifteen, if accurately acquainted wit
our condition, would desire it;, ador,
"I have no disposition to deal i
invective in relation to either th
North or tho South. Tho solemnit
of the crisis should admonish ever
patriot to avoid it. I most earuestl
desire the perfect restoration of ox
national Union, not merely iu nam?
but in heart. Much of the unkim
ness which exists at present has bee
fomented by intemperate speak ci
and writers North and South an
South and North. In too many ii
stances, the newspaper press h:
tended rather to excite and inflan:
than enlighten the public mind."
MONETARY.-The National InleL
gencer has an article in reference 1
Wall street, from which, we extra
the following paragraph:
Many people are inquiring wh
they shall do with their surpli
money. The time for speculation

Anything that will give au inter*
of seven per cent, would be read i

Government bonds would be bong
up at an advance. The five per cer
would not linger at par. If the p?
pie could be made to believe that ?
can or shall have a 30uud curren
eighteen months heuce, they won
anticipate, or as they say in W
street, discount, the fact. They pi
baldy know, however, that Congn
is to control this matter, and tl
body ?viii have their hands so full
political subjects for the next t'
years that they will give little attc
tion to financial reforms.
RAYMOND THREATENS.-The N
York Times, of Tuesday, says:
Weean tell the South somethi
more. Unless tho peuding amer
meut be "accepted by the Southe
Legislatures, the fate of existing f.
vernment organizations at the Son
may be considered fixed. Wo i
d ilge in no menace. We affect
p rphetic vision. We oseay no i
Rtract argument, and lay claim to
exclusive information. But there
a fact vrhich the South cannot i
quickly comprehend, and that is, tl
in the absence of a settlement bas
upon the proposed amendment, Cc
gress will affirm the territorial exi
ence of the South, legislate out
official being its present f imctionar
and machinery of government, a
provide for tho organization of tei
tories on a plan suited to the em
gency. Aro the Southern people p
pared for this alternative?

Butler, of Morgan, proposed, in
Senate, a memorial to Congress; al

ors to proceed to Washington to

' ALnguat*. and Columbia. Railroad.
Touching the subscription of the
city of Augusta to this roa?l, the
Chrordcle'and Sentinel, of Thursday^
In making this subscription, our
city fathers would do weil to insist
upon certain guarantees which will
prevent the management of the road,
after it is completed, for the ex?
clusive or unfair benefit of any con?
necting road. More especially is this
important in relation to the roads
with which it will connect at Colum?
bia. We learn that the Wilmington
and Manchester Road will, in all pro
, bability, upon the completion of this
road, build a line direct from Sumter
I to Columbia. The contract between
' our City Council and tho Augusta
and Columbia Road should secure to
the Wilmington and Manchesb r
Company tho same rights and privi?
leges, as a connecting road, that are
given to any. other line.
The reasons for insisting upon a
guarantee of this sort are obvious,
when it is remembered that the road
from Columbia to Charlotte is under
the control of the same officer, and
I to a considerable extent of tho same
influence which has charge of the
Columbia and Augusta Road. With?
out some restrictions being placed
upon them, it will bo very easy for
the management of the Charlotte
Road ty give such direction to that
of the Augusta Road as will give the
former the control of the business
which may be offered at Columbia.
The interests of Augusta, and in?
deed of the whole country, require
that the line from this place to Co?
lumbia should be open to all parties,
upou equal terms. The Council are
iu a situation which enable* them tc
insist upon such terms as will secure
j this result. We believe that they
will, in their negotiation with thc
President of thc Columbia Road,
look carefully to this matter.
U. S. GRANT-.--lu the report oi
Gen. Grant, upon tho military affair;
of the country, recently published,
the following paragraph occurs :
Passing from civil war. of tho mag

eminent through the courts, it ha:
been deemed necessary to keep a mili
tary force in all the lately rebellion
States, to insure thu execution of law
and to protect life and property
against tho acts of those, who as yet
will acknowledge no law but force
This class has proven to be mucl
smaller than could have been expectet
after such a conflict, ft has, howev?
er, been sufficiently . formidable ti
justify thc course which has beei
pursued. On thc whole, tho coudi
tion of the States that were in rebel

regarded as good enough to warran
the hope that but a short time wi]
intervene beforo the bulk of th
troops now occupying them eau b
sent to our growing territories, wher
they are so much needed.

SWINDLING FREEDMEN. -A systej

Wo extract the following from a
spacial despatch to the Baltimore
Sun, o? the 12th :
. The House was interested to-day
in a brief discussion on an anomalous
proposition of Mr. Lawrence, of
Ohio, to repeal the statute of limita?
tions in trials for treason, and provid?
ing that any man guilty of treason
may bo tried anywhere and at any?
time. Mr. Lawrence gave asa reason
for ihe passage of this bill that un?
less it should be enacted wo cannot
hang Jefferson Davis. Several mem?
bers took legal exception to Mr.
Lawrence's position, but Mr.. Stevens
went still farther. He said' bc would
rather see every traitor in the coun?
try escape than see one of them hung
hy a law passed after his offence and
for the purpose of bonging him. Mr.
Stevens denounced such legislation
as utterly uujusLiliable and discredit?
able. He did not believe Mr. Davis
could be tried for treason, nor that
he had been guilty of treason'. His
offence was that of a belligerent, not
of a traitor. Ho (Mr. Steveus) had
not opposed the offerts made to bring
Mr. Davis to trial, but he had not
favored them. But he was utterly
opposed to any legislation of the
kind proposed, which would make
the mode, time or place of trial dif?
ferent from what they wore when the
offence was committed. Mr. Stevens'
remarks were listened to with .pro?
found attention. The bilTwent over.
Thorojs something unusually re?
freshing and hopeful in portions of
the legal argument of Mr. Stevens.
It gives assurance that some of the
monstrous propositions and legal
anomalies embraced in certain bills
before the Congress, and threatened
to be brought before that body, will j
not receive tho unanimous support of
the radical party after all. Retroac?
tivo or ex post facto law has thus far,
in this session of Congress, seemed
to be in general favor, and only yes?
terday, a very good lawyer, Mr. Bing?
ham, of Ohio, permitted his party
zeal to run away with bis legal know?
ledge and judgment so far as to in?
troduce a bill to make valid and legal

which have already been declared, by
United States courts, invalid and ille?

WANTKO!-The Richmond Times
has the following admirable hit:
A liberal reward will be paid by
the Reconstruction Committee of
Congress for "murdered agents of
the Freedmen's Bureau." as well as
for "insulted" school marms. As
soon as Congress adjourned the
demand for "atrocities" and "out?
rages" subsided ; but il bas been re?
vived with a vengeance during the
last ten days.
To meet this demand, it is scarcely
possible t<> take up a cony of the Tri?
bune which does not contain a tele?
gram announcing the massacre of
some agent of the Freedmen's
Bureau, at some point so remote,
as Mrs. Malaprop would say, from
the "outsquirts of civilization, as to
defy investigation." We suspect
that the "murdered victims of rebel
barbarity" furnish themselves ah
these accounts of the deep damnation
of their taking off, and find the busi?
ness exceedingly profitable. Any
agent of the Bureau, who will furnish
the Tribune with a circumstantial
account of how his head was chopped
off, and his body subsequently roast?
ed by "a dozen merciless rebels,"
will be allowed the highest price
which is paid to corresponding Milli?
ehausens. Any "school marm," of
ardent imagination, who viii give a
pathetic account of tho "breaking of
the windows of her school," will placo
the Reconstruction. Committee under
many obligations. If she is conscien?
tious, and has been pionsly reared,
and requires a small substratum of
truth for her account, she can find a
"truthful and intelligent, freedman"
to smash her windows, and boot at
her in the most dismal manner, for
five cents a night.
The damand now seems to bo con?
fined to murdered agents of the
Bureau and "insulted school mis?
tresses;" but a "barbecued freed?
man" wbuld command a fair price, if
he was roasted alive before a slow
fire, by a committee of cx-Confede

INDIANS STILL IX FLORIDA.-Ac?
cording to tho following statement, in
the lust number of the St. Augustine
Examiner, there are still from 100 to
400 Indians in that State. The Eva
miner says: "It is reported that there
are a large number of Seminole and
TJehee Indians still remaining in Flo?
rida, variously estimated at from 100
to 100-men, women and children.
The country occupied by them is in
tho vicinity of Indian River Inlet,
then South to Jupiter and Hillsboro'
Inlet, then West through tho Evor
gkv les, coming out on the Coiiosa
hatchie River. Colonel Sprague,
commanding this District, has made
arrangements to communicate with
them, and will pioeeeddown the coast
in the United States revenue cutter
to the points referred to, when it is
expected that Thoek-to-turte-nugge,
the chief of the band, will be induced
to visit our city. The prince of these
'wild men of the woods' amongst us
will be of much interest, and cause
many of our citizens to revert to their
services and trials during the deso?
lating and prolonged Florida war."
A DCEL IN THE DARK.-We are in?
formed that on Saturday night last,
a bloody rencontre took place between
two men iv, the baggage car of a pas?
senger train on the Nashville and
Decatur Railroad. The . difficulty
started in a passenger coach, and was
the result of a dispute in regard to
the quality of whiskey each carried.
Both were probably more or less in?
The two ;incn repaired to the bag?
gage car, and after pacing off the
proper distance, wheeled, and at a
given signal, fired their pistols.
Neither of them appeared to bo hurt
after tho shots.
At that moment the only light in
the jar, which shone from u lantern
held by the person who gave the
signal, went out suddenly, and tho
duelists then grasped their knives
and sprang upon each other like ti?
gers, cutting and slashing at a fearful
rate. They are both probably dead,
or if living, terribly lacerated.
Our informant did not learn tho
result of tho affair, or the names of
the parties. The noise of thc swift?
ly moving train deadened'the sound
of tho bloody conflict, and it is prob?
able that very little is known about
it.- Nashville Banner.

How LIKE.-A quaint old writer,
says tho Quincy Herald, says that
when tho pious early settlers of "New
England wanted to appropriate tho
lands of tho Indians, they adopted
certain resolutions, tho substance of
which was, "the earth is tho Lord's
and the fullness thereof; resolved,
that the Lord has bestowed the earth
upon his Saints; resolved that we are
his Saints." Tho radicals of the pre?
sent day act upon like , principle.
They resolve that none but "loyal"
peoplo are entitled to civil govern?
ment; and that, therefore, none but
tho "loyal" should rule tho Govern?
ment; and then they resolve that they
