Destitution in this State.
Wo cxtrnot tho following from thc
New York Times, of Monday:
Col. Jobu B. Palmer, tho agent of
the New York Southern Relic! Com?
mission, at Lexington, S. C., gives,
in a recent report, some facts that af?
ford a glimpse of the terrible destitu?
tion of tho pcoplo about him. He
says, among ot" or things, that two
cases of actual btarvation have come
to his notice-au aged widow and a
daughter. It seems that these poor
creatures, left penniless by the war,
had subsisted as best they could,
living from hand to mouth, sealing
their furniture, bedding and clothes,
until finally they shnred with the clogs
tho garbago of tho street, living on
tho filth and refuse of thc town, until
death" released them from wretched?
ness and debasement.
The commissioner's record is full of
dismnl but suggestive reading, and
the number of "extreme cases" is
startling. Tho fact is, we have bo
como so familiar with destitution,
starvation, hardship, suffering ami
kindred phrases, that wo tako them
in at ono ear ami let them out at the
other. Our contributions have not
been liberal, not even ordinarily ge?
nerous, and tho same remark applies
to the subscriptions iu Boston, Phila?
delphia and other largo cities. The
church collections, about which so
much was said, resulted iu nothing
the day was stormy and tho matter
was postponed. Since then, dribblets
have beeu sent to the authorized
commissioners, but nothing of any
In the meantime, tho accounts
from oflicial sources continuo to ap?
peal to Northern sympathy for help.
pBfcjt^y^iine officials send word of thc
^BjpPsfion, throughout South Caro
lina moro particularly, of anti
Northorn intercourse societies among
the "better classes" of Southern
people-word which, ia certain quar?
ters has a prejudicial and unfair effect
upon the minds of those who might
bo disposed to g ?ve. It is unfair,
because assistance is withheld not
from the auti-iutcrcourso 2>ooplo, but
from the poor whites, tho "sand
killers," who were forced into tho
Confederate armies, aud, after years
of unpaid service, return to their
families, unablo to support them, per?
haps needing support themselves.
A letter from Gov. Orr states that
thc wheat harvest, on which so much
depends, cannot be gathered until
the 1st of July, and that at least 400,
000 bushels of corn viii bc needed to
support tho destitute by gratuitous
distribution in that State alone. Tho
store of cowl on hand at' the date of
his letter was not sufficient to provide
the very poor with three weeks' ra?
tions. What will, in thc meantime,
appease tho cravings of tho. unfortu?
nate, nono can foresee.
Within tile week, a letter has been
re ceived by a well known scholar of
this city from a lady, with whose
family in other days frequent corres?
pondence was exchanged, in which
she state:-: that her husband-a pro?
minent literary man of South Caroli?
na-is confined to the house by ill?
ness. Her little children, accustomed
to luxury and refinement, are hungry
and half-nuked, and she is almost
.crushed under thc embarrassments
that encounter her single-handed
strength. She asks no money, but"
clothing of any kind for her children.
Such facts ns these should arouse
thc veriest Gradgrinds to the terribie
reality of Southern destitution.

"Wo havo riiaclo diligent inquiry of

that moro than half Hie land will be

MORE TESTIMONY IN FAVOR OF
Heinitsh's Queen's Delight.
EXTRACTS FROM LETTERS: "The
Queen's Delight is beginning to
awaken tho attention of our physicians.
Its remarkable curative power is seen in
its wonderful effect upon disease. As a
blood purifier, there is no medicino like it
known to tho profession. A gentleman
told mo that his son has been taking thc
Queen's Delight, and is moro bonofitcd by
it iban by any other medicine. He wants
a dozen bottles."
Extract from a letter: "It is due to you
to state in this publie manner, in order
that the people may know the truth, that
I have tried your Queen's Delight, and
I found it not only what you said it was-"a
pure medicino"--but the best medicino I
hare ever taken for eruptions and general
bad health. I had an eruption all over my
body, with impaired digestion and disor?
dered liver, and have tried a great many
medicines without any benefit. I have
taken one bottle of your Queen's Delight,
the eruption hus disappeared, my appetito
is better, my liver and digestion is im?
proved. I am sat ?.'lied one or two moro
bottles will onto mo."
Extract from a letter: "Al thc close of
the war, my constitution was (-battered. I
could not eat, sleep or perform any duty
whatever, such was my prostrate condi?
tion. Medicine and medical aid I had in
abundance, such was my condition np to a
few months since, when I began the usc of
your Queen's Delight. 1 have used two
bottles, my constitution is greatly im?
proved, my appetite is good, enjoy refresh
: sleep, ann am able to perform my share
of daily labor."
Extract from a letter-Wonderful effect
of mi Iv oifc bottle: "L haver nsod only a
half bottle of 'Qneon's Dolight' for boils
and eruptions of the akin and itching hu?
mor! of the blood, which annoyed me.vory
much. 1 am entirely cured. 1 think your
medicine a valuable one."
A remarkable case of liver complaint and
headache cured by the use ol ''Heinitsh's
Queen's Delight:" A lady of unquestioned
worth and reputation Voluntarily gives tes?
timony of the wonderful offects of this
medicino. She has been from early years
R martyr lo headaches, oaused by imper?
fect action of the liver, producing inten.-e
headache and paito over tho eyes. She has
taken only lour bottles, aud assures ns of
tho perfect cur?! it has made. She now en?
joys good health.
Still another: "During last .-pring, 1 had
bein troubled with obstinate chills sud
fever, which, when cured, left my system
in a wretched condition, blood impure, and
I was afflicted with on angry, and, as I at
one time thought, an incurable, cutaneous
eruption over my entire body. Tho most
violent remedies" suggested tailed to work
a cure, until, at tho instance of a friend, I
tried Dr. Heinitsh's Queen's Delight. Less
than two bottles cured ni?>. leaving my skin
in a healthy condition. My general health
is as good as ever. For such purposes, I
havo, ever since my cure, unhesitatingly
recommended your Queen's Delight."
