The Turin"-Strange Developments.
The Washington correspondent of
a New York paper writes:
"A clause was inserted in thc bill
hythe Senate, repealing tho law of
last session, requiring the Pacific
Railroad Company, and certain others
West of the Mississippi, to uso Ame?
rican iron in tho construction of all
railroads in the United States. This
feature was intended to protect our
manufacturers against foreign com?
petition. The Ways and Means
Committeo have restored it in the
It is stated by the New ?York Ex?
press that thc Senate inserted this
report in the bill, and without a di?
vision, on* motion of Mr. Sherman,
of Ohio. Mr. S. stated, in debate,
that Welsh and British iron now
costs, on the other side, about thirty
five dollars per ton, and ninety dol?

necessity to import iron and rails to
relay old tracks and to lay thc nume?

in Iowa, and thc North-west gene?

the people of that section just now
by the high bounty tarif! men in
Congress. Some of these aro thus

old railroads cannot afford to keep
themselves in good repair.
3. That while heavy food is rotting
in some parts of the West, the cost
of transportation over heavy taxed

Such is the result of radical legis?
lation. Surely the people of the
West and North-west will have their
eyes opened, ero long, to the motives
of the party headed by Stevens and
others of that stripe. While, politi?
cally, they are trying to crush the
poor unfortunate people of this see
tion, they are inflicting upon the
peop'e who aid them against us incal?
culable injury, as we'll us impeding
almost every great interest <>[ the
country. And all for what? That
Thad. Stevens and his In-other iron?
mongers of Pennsylvania may make
large profits. Such is the fanaticism
of tiie prest nt Congress.
THE NEW CUSTOM HOUSE. -Weare'
highly gratified to learn by a letter
received from Washington that au
appropriation towards the completion
of this fine building will probably
be made at thc present session of
Congress. The Collector of the Port
now on a visit to Washington on
official business connected with his
office, had obtained au interview and
hearing before the Committee of the
House, and had receive;! ;i favorable
response to his application.

To BE EXECUTED.-Wright Sulli?

robbery in this District, and whose
case was carried to the Appeal Court,
where the sentence of death was pro?

SURRATT AND THE COPPERHEADS.
The Washington Ledqei; avery funny
but malignant radical sheet, in its
account of the arival of Surratt, says:
We observed several of the leading
"Copperheads" of the city in the
yard, and one of them was heard to
remark that "no twelve men in this
District could be found who would

"Wo have about determined that
the time and ink bestowed upon the
discussion of our political status can
be more profitably employed, and
herein give notice to those who have
been specially edified by our disqui?
sitions upon this branch of philoso?
phy, that we will let the subject rest
for the present. Our readers will re?
ceive regularly the news, and it will
remain with them to form an opinion
as to w hat progress wo are making lu
nearing a haven of rest and security.
We wish to write more upon subjects
that directly concern our material
prosperity, and *o awaken a spirit of
enterprise and progress in every
branch of home industry, satisfied to

He who "rides upon the storm" will,
in his own good time, bring about
such issues as will redound to our
good and His glory."
Our cotemporary is nearly right as
regards the discussion of the recon?
struction plans of Congress; but, as
"eternal vigilance is the price of
liberty," and as we expect to get back
in the Union in some way, and at
some time hereafter, wc think it be?
hooves the Southern people to watch
closely thc progress of political
events; and wc think it to be the
duty of Southern journalists to keep
'them thus informed, and to comment
freely on such measures as affects
their political and material interests.
A CONFEDERATE GENEBAL OK SOUTH
CAROLINA.-General Albert Pike,
poet, politician and soldier, has
taken editorial charge of the Mem?
phis Appeal. He has some pretty
decided criticisms now and then. The
latest is on the following despatch
CHARLESTON, February 10.-Gov.
Orr has just arrived from Washing?
ton. Ho expresses himself as con?
vinced of speedyfrestoration on thc
basis of impartial suffrage. It is un?
derstood he will defer convening the
Legislature of South Carolina until
thc North Carolina Legislature takes
action on the new propositions.
Whereupon, Pike says:
South Carolina did not "wait" foi
North Carolina, or any other State,
in 1861, when a few of her leaders,
urged by hot-headed persons at Wash
ington from other States, hurried am
precipitated her into secession fo]
the avowed purpose of forcing tin
other Southern States to secede
whether they deemed it wise to do so
or rash and premature. We shouh
think that Gov. Orr and Gov. Aikei
would think it not exactly in thebes
taste for South Carolina to be cagei
to return into the Union at thc pric<
of negro suffrage.
LABOR IS ALABAMA.-The Selia:
(Ala.) Times says that the dispositioi
among planters is to produce a suffi
ciency of breads tuffs to supply them
selves, at least. There is also a de
cided tendency among all to locali/i

To Holders of Stocks, Bonds and
Coursons of the State.
BY the provisions of the Acts of Septem?
ber and December, 1866, providing for
the funding of the interest and principal of
certain Stocks and Bonds of the State past
due, the holders of Stocks, Bonds or Cou?
pons can receive either Bonds with Cou?
pons attached, or Registered Stock, as
may he preferred by them.
Nil Bond will be issued for a less amount
than $100, nor for fractional parts thereof;
and no Certificate of Stock will be issued
for a less amount than $50, nor for frac?
tional parts thereof; but "holders of Stock,
Bonds or Coupons must pay the differ?
ence, if there be any, between the amount
presented and tho Bonds or Stock."
The following i? the indebtedness of the
State recited in the above mentioned Acts
to he funded, viz:
Of Bonds issued tinder Act of December.
1S5!>, "to grant aid to the Blue Ki.ige Rail?
road," past due since 1st January, lHii.j;
and of Stock issued under Act of June,
1838, "for rebuilding the city of Charles?
ton,'' past due since I860.
On Bonds under Act of December. IHJ'J,
mentioned above; on Bonds tinder Act of
December. 1854, "to authorize aid to the
Blue Ridge Railroad;"" on Bonds issued by
virtue of Act of December, 1855, for thc
construction of the new State House, and
tho Bonds issued tinder Act of December.
1 s3:i, "to provide funds for the erection of
the new State Capitol;'.' on Stock issued for
thc construction of the new State House,
by authority of Acts of lS?t?, '57, '58, '59,
'Cl and '63; on Stock issued hy Act of June,
1 "for rebuilding tin- city of Charles?
ton." (excepting that portion of saidStock
already ref? rreel to as past duo since 1860,
and on it no interest is to he calculated;)
and on the three per cent. Stockla??cd
by the State.
"The foregoing inter, si i.- to be calcinated
as due up io the 1st July, 1867, al which
lime the new Bonds ami Stock begin io
bear interest, payabh semi-annually t here?
after. The interest on the new Certificates
of Stock for the principal of St oi k of Act
ls:!S. already mentioned as past due since
I860, will bear interest from the 1st Janua?
"The small amount of the Stoeli of ls;-;s,
past due since 1860, being specially pro?
vided tor by these Acts, thc holders there?
of ?ill receive new Certificates of Stock in
the amounts called for by the ones they
now hold, upon their presentation.
Persons desiring to transfer interest due
them, by order, must .slate on the face of
the- order thc definite amount thus sought
to l,e transferred, affixing thereto, in all
cases, the requisite United states revenue
stamps. Orders defective in these parti?
culars, or drawn for thc transfer of trilling
amounts of interest, w ill not hi recognized
hy thc office.
The attention of Stockholders is special?
ly calh-d to the following resolution,
passed at thc last session of thc General
"Resolved, That the State Treasurer be
authorized to fund the interest on the
Stock of the State past due, as provided
for in the Act of September, 1866, and tin
Act passed at the present session of the
General Assembly, in the name of the
parties or persons holding the principal or
entitled to the interest on the said Stocks
on thc first day of January, 1SU7."
it will he observed that this resolution
in no way effects thc sale and transfer of
Stock, hut simply means that, as the inte?
rest is already calculated on all the funda
ble Stock to tin1 1st .July, 1867, preparatory
to funding, parties dealing therein prior to
that date must arrange between them?
selves the inu res: to which thc amount
sold and to bc transferred, would, in the
absence of such circumstances, bc entitled
<'ii thc 1st July, 1867; and in accordance
with the Acts providing for tho funding, to
avoid the duplication of interest, all Certi?
ficates issued on transfers made prior to
the 1st July, 1867, must begin to bear in?
terest on that date.
Persons holding Stocks, Bonds or Cou?
pons included in above statement, are re?
quested to present their claims.

J_ ed Commissioner, has been instructed
by his Excellency Governor Orr to organ?
ize thc Bureau at the earliest possible mo?
ment, in a few days, agents will he ap?
pointed by the Governor to proceed l<>
Europe, whoso duty it wiil be to induce
immigration to our State, to disseminate
snell information as may he furnished them
of lands for sale or lease, and to engage
such laborers, mechanics, servants am!
other help as may be desired by the inha?
bitants of the Siate. An agent for tin
same object will, perhaps, be sent, to Nev.
York, lt would be desirable that all peo?
ple furnish this Bureau, without delay,
with information how they desire to be
served, indicating tho kind of help they
require and the wages which they are wil?
ling to pay; or a description of the lands
they have'for -ale or lease, and their terms
and conditions. If combinations cnn be
formed in thc sevi ral Districts of the State
for joint action, it would, perhaps, facili?
tate mutual operations; and where ar?
rangements eau be made to advance part
'.f the passage money of the laboring im?
migrants, by accepted orders to that effect
on any of the factors or merchants of
Charleston, it would no doubt greatly ad?
vance thc result. If the people that favor
this measure frould meet at their respect?
ive Court Houses to consult and indicate
tin ir wants, this Bureau would take great
pleasure in serving their interest to tin'
last of its ability. A pamphlet will bc
printed in several European languages fer
distribution, (describing thc capacities and
advantages of our soil, climate, produc?
tions, etc, in which many particulars, that
are promptly furnished, may be advertised.
The means at thc disposal of this Bureau
being strictly limited, the kind assistance
of the conductor^ of our public journals :s
