Manufacturing in this State.
We learn from a private corres?
pondence, that Mr. William Berry,
the proprietor of thc Pendleton Fac?
tory, in this State, designs to enlarge
its capacity for more extended opera?
tions. For this purpose, ho desires
to increase the capital stock of the
establishment to 860,000, in o .1er to
carry on the business more profitably,
and on a scale better suited to the
capacity of the mill. To accomplish
this, he proposes to raise a joint
stock company, by selling about forty
shares, of $1,000 each, retaining
twenty shares himself. The laetoiy
has been profitably operated by Mr
Peny for the past six months, ami
paid a protit of twenty per cent, on
the capital ;;lock in that time.
We would be glad to see Mr. Perry
and all others engaging in manufac?
turing in this and other States of thc
South meei, with success, and thc
proposal made, we think, offers a
good opportunity for those who have
the means and the inclination to em?
bark in the business. In the success?
ful establishment of cotton manufac?
tories throughout thc South, we be?
lieve, depends much of hex tuturi
The figures and statements oi

pro?ts of these establishments. Col

disappointed in their migration West

The local manufacture of the stapl
in the neighborhood where it i
grown, as estimated by the best au
thorities, will, at the lowest calcul;
lion, m it double, the price of th
raw staple packed and sent oil* t
foreign manufacturers. These result
are matter of statistical and matin
matieal certainty, and cannot be db
puted. In tho present impoverishe
condition ol the South, her peopl
should uso every effort to realize bot
values of the staple. To have som
idea of the increased profits to th
local manufacturez*, as well us th
planter, they must add to tin; plan
ors not returns and the factor's eon
missions in Charleston, or some otk?
Southern shipping port, tho profit
of Lowell and .Manchester.
What these profits are, wo find coi
doused in a letter written by tim
Patton, <>n the subject, some weol
ai*o. in Lowell, there ari: len larg
manufacturing establishments, 1
carry on which the aggregate c&pit;
is S13,0*X),000. The cotton consume
annually, 100,000 bides; the numb?
of yards ot cloth produced (cxcli
sive of yarns) was something ovi
100,000,000; the number of oper
fives, ?nosily women and childrc:
12,(1(10. To luise the amount of eu
ton manufactured by these mill
would require at least 30,000 fie
laborers, und yet it is converted in
vam and cloths by 12,000. Tho pr
cess of manufacturing- the cott<
doubles ils value, and yet. this on
requires 12,000 women and childrc
while the raising of the cotton i
?pures 30,000 hands. The writ?
then, pointedly and forcibly says:
"These are plain and positi
figures, taken from sources of u

The Sherman Bill.
It seems by our despatches, yester?
day morning, that Sherman's bill, by
skillful manipulating, passed the j
House, and, it was stated, would pro- j
bably pass the Semite. It is some- '
thing rasier than Stevens' bill, giving \
the appointment of the military go
? vernors of the Southern States to the
President, instead of the General of
But the measure is not yet a law.
It will be vetoed by the President,
will have to pass over the veto, and
then will lind its way to the Supreme
Court, where it will be declared un?
constitutional. Wc will take the
earliest opportunity of placing the
enactment before our readers, when
we get it in authenticated form. In
its transition between thc two Houses
of Congress, it has been so much
amended and changed that it would
be useless to give a synopsis of what
we thought it was.
It must reach us iu a day or two,
as it will have passed both Houses;
but we do not think it will ever be?
come an operative law.
The Newnan (Ga.) Herald, speaking
iu reference to the emigration of the
negro to th? richer cotton-growing
regions of thc lower valley, and thc
fact that the old Southern States
must begin to diversify their indus?
trial energies, says, with much good
But il we. partially abandon the
cultivation of cotton, we will, ol' ne?
cessity, be forced io adopt other
means of money making. Nothing
truer and nothing easier. We aro
favored with a. climate ami soil adapt?

peach. The former are now soiling
in our market for two dollars and a
hali' or three dollars per bushel,
while dried peaches are vert!'., in the
New York market, ?'rom thirty io
thirty-live couts per pound, or ten or
twelve dollars per bushel. These
facts should convince every om* hav?
ing the smallest knowledge of arith?
metic, that a large orchard will pay
better than a "cotton patch."

Middle Georgia cannot buy the cot?

Tin- Fenian itisitig.
The New York Times, of Tuesday,
has tho following cable despatch,
dated London, evening ol' the 18th:
The cause of tin- Pinnau outbreak
in tho South ol' Ireland is yet buried
in obscurity, though the telegraph
linos which run through the disaffect?
ed district are again working, and
communication has boon restored.
Some say that it was caused by the
arrest of the American officer, Capt.
Moriarity; while others say that this
prompt ai'rest prevented a general
rising of the irish.
Tlio British Government had news
of the affair early on the 12th inst.
An upper servant in the household of
tho Earl of Kenmore had received
two anonymous notes, stating that a
rising was planned in Killarney, and
that tho leader would reach Killarney
from Cahirciveen that night. Con?
stables were immediately sent to in?
tercept him. They met a wagon, on
which they lound Moriarity, whom
they took into custody, and upon
searching his person, found letters
confirming the assertions in the
Tho Fenian plan was to attack Kil?
larney, capture the place, and then
mareil to Cork. But the immediate
despatch of troops from Cork to Kil?

of Cail. Ilobsford's movements, de?
feated the wdiole plot, and caused the
insurgent band to disperse.

THAT SECRET MISSION.-The New
York Herald, of the 10th, says:
The secret mission of the steamer
Gettysburg, with frederick Seward
and Admiral Porter on board, has
been unearthed. Tho intention w.is
to purchase the island, of St. Domin?
go fora coaling station. President
Cabrai thought the plan a good one,
but demanded cash down, and plenty
of it. A largo amount of specie had
been brought aboard ?it Annapolis,
but at Port Royal, .Jamaica, the sail?
ors broke into the ward-room where
it was stored, abstracted three bags
of it, and deserted the ship with their
booty. But a reward of $100 being
offered for the recovery of tho money,
the search for them was very brisk,
and one of them was caught, with a
fortune on his person. He was
turned over to the first lieutenant,
who, it is said, compassionately re?
turned tho money to him and sent
him ashore. Thus the "missiona?
ries" had not money enough to pur?
chase St. Domingo, and. after recu?
perating their health ?at Nassau,
returned disappointed to Annapolis.
A REPUBLICAN PICTURE OF CON?
GRESS.-A Washington correspondent
writes to the New York Post:
"The Republicans are by no means
united. A part of them, in both
Houses, do not really desire to com?
plete any practical method of recon?
struction. They mean to keep the
Southern States out as long as they
can, to treat them as harshly us pos?
sible, to force through Congress mea?
sures which shall increase instead of
diminishing the divergence between
the President and Congress. These
men oppose the Blaine amendment
to the military bill, and insist on the
passage of the military bill alone.
The violent and extreme Republicans
in both Houses exercise an influence
disproportioned to their numbers, by
reason of their virulence and intole?
rance. They denounce as a copper?
head every Republican who offers to
differ from them, and exercise really
a system of terrorism, which has
broken down the independent judg?
ment of very many, and makes some
of the ablest men in the House and
Senate so anxious to avoid their pro?
scription, that they are silent or ac?
quiescent in measures which their

MONET. ORDERS.-The postal money ,
order system is proving a great eon-1
vrnienee, and is increasing in nil our |
cities where such offices exist. In
Savannah the Postmaster averages I,
twenty orders a day. Orders are is- '
sued in any amount not exceeding ! j
$50; and not exceeding 8150 can be j
issued to the same person on one post ! j
office in one day. The fees of money ; <
orders are 10 cents for an order not ? ?
exceeding $20, and 25 cents for over j
820 and not exceeding 850. This L
system of transmitting small sums of |
money is rapidly increasing in public
favor, and Postmaster Harris now j
sells some twenty orders per day. j 1

ANOTHER IMPORTANT D?CISION.- j
Tho Montgomery Advertiser says ot*
a recent decision of thc Supreme
Court of Alabama: Tho case of Haw?
kins vs. Nelson was an action of deti?
nue for a hors<> in Walker Circuit
Court, and the Supreme Court de?
cides that when: ahorse, th?' property
of ..- non-combatant, was tukenbythe
army of the United States; was aban?
doned by them and left on the plain?
tiff's premises, and was afterwards
regained by the owner, the plaintiff
cannot recover him from the owner,
by action at law, without showing
that the seizure by tho army was
authorized by the law of nations, as
recognized by the published general
orders for the regulation of the
United States army.

CRIME IN NEW YORK. In the city
of New York, there were, during the
your 186G, no fewer than seventy-one
homicides and murders, without in?
cluding numerous cases of death by
drowning or other means, where it
was not clear whether or not tl ere
had boon foul play. Only thirty
three persons were arrested for these
crimes, and tho records of the courts
show only fifteen convictions, (seve?
ral of which wore offences committed
in a previous year,) with nineteen
prisoners still to bc tried. That is to
say, of the perpetrators of clear and
unmistakable homicides in New Vori:,
