Spread of Manufacturing.
Wo uro gratified to observo that, in
some portions of tho grout grain
growing regions of . tho North-wost,
thejsubject of the ostnblishmont of
manufactories is, nt length, being
taken up by tho people. With tho
magnificent water-power in that sec?
tion, taken in connection with the
high bounties they havo to pay to
the Eastern manufacturers, tho only
wonder is that they had not embarked |
in the business long ago.
It ia proposed to erect a largo cot
taaiactory at the falls of St. Antho?
ny, and tho people of Minneapolis,
Minnesota, who have the under?
taking Under consideration, behove
that it would bo very profitable.
One of tho papera say that water
power there is certainly much cheap?
er than in Lowell, Lawrence and
similar places; labor is as cheap; tho
-.cost of subsistence, in that laud of |
"wheat-, of meat and of general plenty,
would certainly bo much cheaper
than in the East, where breads tull's,
beef, pork, lard and cheeso are largely
procured from tho Wost. Why, then,
it is properly asked, should not a
yard of cotton oloth be manufactured
ns cheaply thero as in Lowell? Wo
quote from a Minnesota paper:
"The cotton to go East is first
sent from the plantations by steamers
to ports of shipment, and thero
transferred to* sailing vessels bound
to Boston, New York or Pbiladel
Ehia, when, for use hero, it would
e put on board a boat on the
lower Mississippi or tributaries, and
not again unloaded till it reached
within convenient droyago distance
of tho place of manufacture. Cer?
tainly, there would bo a saving on
the freight of the raw material."
. The writer urges tho above reasons
fdr going into the business exten
aivehy. With tho exception, perhaps,
that, at present, tho South is not n
grain-growing region-it is improving
in that respect, however-she has all
the advantages noticed above, only,
perhaps, to a greater extent. If
manufactories were established iu
theso States, the cotton, or tho bulk
of it, could bo hauled from thc planta?
tion to tho factory, or to its ngeut in
any town or city. We have abundant
water power; wo can raise provisions,
and the double commissions, dray age,
wharfago and storage, which moko
up a long array of charges to bo de?
ducted from tho umount the cotton
sold for, would be avoided.
With tho South, West and North?
west engaged, even moderately, in
cotton and other manufactures, tho
days of protection by high tariffs
drawbacks, &c, would bo at au end.
Tho consumers, in every section of
tho country, would bo relieved of a
heavy burden, aud bo enabled to live
in comparative comfort, ns prices of
all the articles tho}- need would as?
suredly tumble down. Wo hope the
good work will go on.

ALMOST HUNG.-The subjoined let?
ter explains a circumstance referred
to in tho Mercury, of Saturday, un?
der tho caption of "Almost Hung,"
and it is regretted that any misappre?
hension of the facts of the ?aso should
havo accidentally occurred:
EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT S. C.,
COLUMBIA, 17th June, 1867.
To (he Editors of the Mercury, Charles?
ton, S. C.
GENTLEMEN: Under your head of
"Local Affairs," in yesterday's Mer
cary, you state that the freedman,
John Jenkins, "wan almost hung,
owing to a strango over-sight on the
part of Governor Orr in souding a
copy of tho reprieve of tho negro,
John Jenkins, lo General Sickles, and
none to tho 'sheriff of thc District."
Tho facts aro theso: Tho respite for
Jenkins was prepared and carrie*' by
mo to thc post office Tuesday night,
and banded to Mr. Bell, ono of thc
clerks. Tho contents of the letter
were communicated lo him, and ho
promised to mail it so as to reach
Charleston Wednesday night, which
he doubtless did. The lotter was ad?
dressed to "John E. Carew, Esq.,
Sheriff Charleston District, Charles
ton, S. C." No copy of tho reprieve
was sent lo General Sickles, but a
telegram was sont tb him Tuesday
evening by Governor Orr, informing
him that Jenkins had been re spited
until thc 12th July. I have tho honor
to bo, very respectfully, your obe?

After removing Mayor Withers,
General Swnyne proceeded to re?
organize tho City Council and Board
of Aldermen of tho city of Mobile.
Among tho appointments as Council?
man of tho Eighth Ward was a Mr.
Jones. Tho latter, not recognizing
tho right of Swayne to remove the
? old board uud appoint at will their
successors, declined to accept tho
j proffered appointment. Whereupon
Swayno declared his intention, in a
letter to Jones, to appoint in Iiis place
"a loyal colored mau."
A portion of the colored people of
Mobile then wrote the following let?
ter to Genend Swayne, declining, for
themselves and their colored friends
of Mobilo, to receive tho appoint?
ment, and asking for tho appoint?
ment of Mr. Gideon M. Parker. Wo
commend not only the example of
the colored people of Mobile to their
race in this city, but toke pleasure,
also, in calling special attention to thc

Tho following is the concluding
portion of Attorney-General Stau
barry's opinion iu relation to the
Reconstruction Acts, defining
WHO ARE ENTITLED TO REGISTRATION.
L The oath prescribed in the sup
plemontal Act defines nil the qualifi?
cations required, nud every porsou
who can take tho oath is outitlod to
have his name entered upou thc list
2. Tho board of registration havo
no authority to administer any other
oath to tho larson applying for re?
gistration than this proscribed oath ;
uor to administer any oath to any
other person touching the qualifica?
tions of the applicant, or tue falsity
of thc oath so taken by him. Thc
Act, to guard against falsity in the
oath, provides that, if false, the per?
son taking it shall be tried and pun?
ished for por jury.
No provision is made for challeng?
ing the qualifications of the appli?
cant, or cutciing upon any trial or
investigation of his qualifications,
either by witnesses or auy other
form of proof.
3. As lo citizens/iip awl residence.
Tho applicant for registration must
bo a citizen of tho State and of tho
United States, and must bo a resident
of a County included in tho election
district. He may bo registered if he
bas been such citizen for a period
less than twelve months at the time
ho applies for registration, but he
cannot vote at auy election unless
his citizenship has then extend d to
the full term of ono year. Ah to
such a person, the exact length of his
citizenship should bo noted opposite
his name ou tho list, so that it may
appear on tho day of election, upon
reference to the list, whether the full
term has then been accomplished.
4. An unnaturalized person cannot
take this oath, but au alien who lins
been naturalized can take it. and no
other proof of naturalization cnn be
required from him.
5. Noone who is not*[tweuty-one
years of age at tho time of registra?
tion can take the oath, for ho must
swear that ho has thou attained that
G-. No one who bas been disfrnn
franchised for participation in any
rebellion against the United States,
or for felony committed against the
laws if any State or of the United
StateT can safely take this oath.
The actual participation in a re?
bellion, or tho actual commission ol
a felony, dues not amount to disfran?
chisement. Tho sort of disfranchise?
ment hero uicaut is that which it
declared by law passed by competent
authority, or which has been fixer
upon tho criminal by the sentence oj
the court which tried him for the
No law of the United States ha;
declared tho penalty of disfranchise
meut for participation in the rebel
lion alone. Nor is it known that uni
such law exists in either of these tel
States, except, perhaps, Virginia, a'
to which State special instruction!
will be given.
7. As to disfranchisement arisitv
from /tarin;/ held office followed by par
ticipation in rebellion.
This is the most important part o
tho oath, and requires strict atten
tiou to arrive at its meaning. I deon
it proper to give the exact words
The applicant must swear or ailinn a
"That I have never been si mendie
of any State Legislature, nor heh
any executive or judicial ofliee iu an;
State, and afterwards engaged in ai
insurrection or rebelliou against th
Uuited States, or giveu aid or com
fort to the enemies thereof; that
have never taken an oath as a mombo
of Congress of the United States, ora
a member of any State Legislature
or as an officer of tho United States
or as an executive or judicial office
of any Slate, to support the Consti
tntiou of tho United States, nu
afterwards engaged in insurrection o
rebellion against the United State.?
or given aid or comfort to thc cut
Two elements must concur in ordc
to disqualify a person under Hies
clauses: First, the oflico and ofiicii
oath to support the Constitution ?
the United States; second, cngflgin
afterwards in rebellion. Doth mut
exist to work disqualification, un
must happen in the order of tim
A person who bas held au i
and taken thc oath to support th
Federal Constitution, and has m
afterwards engaged in rebellion, is in
disqualified. S->, too, a person wli
bas engaged in rebellion, but hasu<
heretofore held an office and take
that oath, is not disqualified.
8. Officers of the United States.
AH to these, the language is witl
out limitation. The person who lu
at any time prior to the rebellio
held any office, civil or militar
under the United States, and hi
taken an official oath to support l!
Constitution of the United States,
subject to disqualification.
0. Military officers of any Stat
prior to the rebellion, uro not subjo
10. municipal officers-that is i
sivy, oflioors of incorporated citio
towns and villages, such as mayor
aldermen, town council, police at
other city or town officers-arc n<
subject to disqualification.
11. Persons who have, prior to tl
rebellion, been members of tho Co
gress of tho Uuited States, or mei
hers of a State Legislature, are sn
jcct to disqualification. But those
.who have been members of conven?
ions framing or amending the con?
stitution of a State, prior to the
rebellion, are not subject to disquali?
12. All the executive or judicial
officers of any State who took an oath
to support the Constitution of tho
United States, are Bubject to disqua?
lification, and in tlfeso I include
comity officers, ns to whom I made a
reservation in the opinion heretofore ?
given. After full consideration, I
havo arrived at tho conclusion that
they are subject to disqualification if
they were requirod to take, ns a part
of their official oath, the oath to
support the Constitution of tho
13. Persons who exercised mero
agencies or employments understate
authority, ure not disqualified; such
as commissioners to lay out roads,
commissioners of public works, visit?
ors of Stnto institutions, directors of
State banks or other State institu
tious. examiners of banks, notaries
public, commissioners to take ac?
knowledgments of deeds, and law?
Having specified what offices held
by any one prior to the rebellion
come within thc menning of the law,
it is necessary next to sot forth what
subsequent conduct fixes upon such
person tho offence of engaging in re?
bellion. I repeat that two things
must exist as to any person to dis?
qualify him from voting; first, tho
office held prior to rebellion, and,
afterwards, participation in tho re?
H. Au act to fix upon a person
the offence of engaging in rebellion
under this law, must bo an overt and
voluntary act. done with thc intent
of ?liding or furthering the common
unlawful purpose. A person forced
into thc rebel service by conscrip?
tion, or undera paramount authority
which ho could not safely disobey,
and who would not havo entered
such service if left tree to the exor?
cise of his own will, cannot be held
to he disqualified from voting.
l?. Mere acts of charity, whore the
intent is to relieve the wants of the
object of such charity, and not done
in aid of the causo in which he may
have been engaged, do not disqualify.
But organized contributions of food
and clothing for thc general relief pf
persons engaged in the rebellion,
and not ot a merely sanitary charac?
ter, but contributed to enable them
to perform their unlawful object,
may be classed with acts which do
Forcett contributions to the rebol
cause, in thc form of taxes or milita?
ry assessments, which a person may
be compelled to pay or contribute,
do not disqualify. But voluntary
contributions to the rebel cause,
even such indirect contributions a^
arise from tho voluntary loan o
money to rebel authorities, or pur
chase of bonds or securities orcatec
to afford the means of carrying Ol
the rebellion, will work disqualified
1G. All those who, in legislative ol
other official capacity, were eugaget
in tho furtherance of the commoi
unlawful purpose, where the du tie:
of the ofiico necessarily lind rolatioi
to the support of tho rebellion, sucl
as members of tho rebel conventions
congresses and legislatures, diplo
matic ngonts of thc rebel Confedera
cy, and other officials whoso office
were created for the purpose of mor
effectually carrying on hostilities
or whose duties appertained to th
support of the rebel cause, must b
held to bo disqualified.
But officers who, during tho rebel
lion, discharged official duties no
incident to war, but only such dutic
as bolong even to a state of pence
and were necessary to the preservo
tion of order and the administrate
of law, are not to be considered :.
thereby engaging in rebellion or a
disqualified. Disloyal sentiments
opinions or sympathies would not dis
qualify, but where H person has, b
speech or by writing, incited other
to engage i's rebellion, li?: must com
under the disqualification.
17. Tho duties of lite board appointe
/ < superintend the elections.
This board, having the custody t
the list ol' registered voters in th
district for which it is constitute,
must sec that tho narnu of the perso
offering to vote is found upon t!i
registration list, and if such provi
to be the fact, it is tho duty of til
board lo receive his vote. They cai
not receive tho vote ol' any perso
whose naiiic is not upon tho lis!
though he may be ready to take til
registration oath, and although li
may satisfy them that ho was nimbi
to have his name registered at t!i
proper time, in consequence of ai
seine, sickness, or other causes.
Tho board cannot enter into au
inquiry na to the qualification of an
person whoso name is not on tho lis
or as to the qualifications of any po:
son whose name is on the list.
18. The mode of totimj is provide
in the Act to be by b/dht. Tho boat
will keep a record and poll-book <

of voters, and tho persons elected h
a plurality of tho votes cast at tL
election, und make returns of the;

?'Oil, Sing a Nc tv SOUR."
MESSRS. FDITORS: Few are aware
on how slight a circumstance deep
emotion frequently depends. Among
tho mouy influences which surround
us, none BO suddenly and so power?
fully affects tho mind ns good music.
Oporntic singing in the house of
prayer is certainly out of place, aud
decidedly objectionable whenever
this species of music is indulged in;j
but iu our walks about places of
public worship, we have never noticed
this peculiarity connected with any
of tho churches of thia city.
Trinity Church Choir, it may bc
said, is a little off from thc "old
paths." Tho classic and ecclesiasti?
cal character of some of the music
for tho canticles of tho church is very
beautiful, but in no way associated
with "Opera.'' It is to bo regretted
that the melodics of tho masters
such as Beethoven, Mendelsohn,
Handel, Hayden, Mozart aud others
.should bo taken as operatic music,
lt exhibits the musical erudition of
those who have taken upon them?
selves to criticise and characterize
every graceful turn and flowing ca?
dence into operatic airs.
In tho house of worship, we are
enjoined by the great Psalmist not
only to pray, but to sing, aud sing a
new song. ".Sing praises lustily
unto him with a good courage;"
"Sing with tho voice of melody.'*
Whatever may be tho motives for
going to church, let no one invade
the sacred precincts of the heart, and
question the iu mates of tho sa?
cred temple. If a note from the
cantatrice could but awaken a re?
sponsive chord in tho heart of one,
and iead his stops to within thc por?
tals ot the saucluary, let tho heavenly
choirs, in their thundering halle?
lujahs, sing. AMEN.
Thc Richmond '/'tines reports a
singular explosion of a latch-key,
with which a gentleman was openiug
his door a few days since. Tho report
was ns loud as that made by an ordi?
nary pistol, and the force of the ex?
plosion shattered tho key-ring and
scattered the keys, blowing a button
<.!!'his glove and injuring his hand.
Thc cause assigned for the explosion
is this: The lock was of brass, and
bad berni heated by the sun, and the
key being of steel, and als?? heated,
had, by coming in contact, caused a
thermo-electric ?'lurent. This cur?
rent often causes au explosion, the
shock of winch i.s not unlike that of
au electric battery.
