A Texas Plan for tixe (Radicals to
Control the South. ?
On yesterday both Houses of Con?
gress were regaled by the rending of
a most extraordinary document for?
warded by telegraph from Austin,
Texas, by authority of the Recon?
struction Convention, now in session
at that place. It comprises a series
of resolutions, which set forth that
greatlawle88nessis prevalent through?
out the State; that law-abiding and
"loyal" citizens are persecuted, and
winds np by asking Congress to give
the Convention power to organize a1
military force in every County, for
the purpose of preventing the com?
mission of the wrongs complained of.
A more audacious request waa never I
?ut with greater coolness before,
hat there ar? numerous lawless men
in Texas, we have not the slightest I
doubt; indeed, that State has always
been noted for the possession of bands j
of 80oandrels who respect neither life,
person- nor property. But the whole
animus of the Convention is apparent
in the attempt to make it appear that
Union men are being murdered by
ex-rebels. This is an old and worn
out cry, and the effort to organizo an
army of radicals, is no new plot. It I
hos been successfully carried ont in '
Tennessee, nnder Parson Brownlow,
and nearly eighteen months ago a j
movement took place in Texas, look?
ing to th? same end. The secret of j
the resolutions which have been
transmitted to Congress, is that the
radicals-desire to Organize an armed
political mob, by means of which
they can obtain permanent posses?
sion of the State. This very Recon?
struction Convention is the elected of1
a decided minority of all the regis?
tered voters in Texas, and when it
hos completed ita work, the probabili?
ties are in favor of a victory for the
conservatives at the election for State
officers. Hence the- anxiety for a |
convention army to control the pollc
We think that the wretched condi?
tion ' of Tennessee to-day, under
Brownlow and hts State army, is a
sufficient warning against extending
the policy of repression to Texas.
We hope that there is yet remaining
in Congress, sufficient decency ana
respect for the opinions of the entire
people of the country, to influence
the radical members thereof to reject
the petition. The threat of the Con?
vention, that in the event of Congres?
sional authority being denied, the
radicals will take the matter into
their own hands, is a significant in?
dication of the lawless character of
these self-styled "loyal" men of
Texas. It is a direct threat to plunge
the State into a condition of anarchy
i and bloodshed.-New York Herald.
A very excellent address was de?
livered by Col. R. A. Fair, before tho
Democratic Club of this piece, on
last Saturday evening. It was ad
dreased principally to the colored
members, and was designed to expose
the false philanthropy of the "car
pet-bngners" and "scalawags,", who
aro currying out theit own selfish
purposes at the expenso of tho de?
luded blacks-flt representatives of
that pions crew of early abolitionists
who sold their slaves, pocketed the
proceeds, and then joined in a holy
crusade against the institution. The
next address will be delivered by the
Hon. A milstead Burt/ with Mr. W.
H. Mc Caw os his alternate;
Franois Todd, about twenty-one
years of age, tras bitten in the hand
by a small dog, in New Haven, two
or three weeks ago, and died on
Monday evening last of hydropho?
bia. The wonnd in his hand waa
very slight, and no ill effects were
apprehended until Sunday, when it
first grew painful.
SUPPLEMENTARY REPORT OF COM. OF IMMIGRATION.
SUPERINTENDENT BUREAU OF EVBiTGRATION,
CHARLESTON, May 18, 1868.
Tb Hin Excellency Governor James L. Orr.
SIR: Since my last report to your Excellency, thirty-one persons
have been registered in this office, and liare found employment in
this State. There arc now twenty persons on the way from Ger?
many and Scandinavia, via Baltimore, and may arrive in a few days.
Tho registries of lands now embrace 332,660 acres, in almost every
District of tho State, for salo at reasonable rates mid on favorable
conditions; and nearly G,000 acres of good lands in salubrious
sections of thc State have been registered to be given as a free
donation to actual settlers, upon reasonable conditions of improve?
I am glad to perceive a more favorable consideration of our State
in Europe, and the indications arc, that as soon as we can obtain
greater and regular facilities for passage, we shall certainly receive
a share of immigration. Indeed, there would now be no want of
well inclined labor for us, if our people could make the arrangement
for an.outlaj- of the cost of transportation.
In Germany, there aro now three influential papers that advocate
our cause, although I am sorry to say we have, as yet, a multitude
of veiw bitter opponents. In Sweden and Denmark, our influence
is also extending; and, after a while, practical results will follow.
In Ireland, several gentlemen arc kindly distributing our pamphlets.
I have mentioned to your Excellency, on a former occasion, that I
desired very much thc establishment of direct steam communication
with Europe. With reasonable sacrifices this could be effected with
Bremen, Hamburg and Glasgow, where ship-owners are veiw favor?
ably inclined to om* project. Thc railroads from Charleston to
Memphis being willing to transport immigrant passengers at one
cent per mile, and their baggage at veiw reduced rates, would make
this route to the West a moro favorable one than over either New
York or Baltimore. It should be our constant aim to accomplish
so desirable an arrangement, and I trust, when our political position
is once more assured, that the State will liberally sustain every
effort that shall be made in that direction. I had, besides, intended
to have published a suggestion for un industrial movement, which
seems calculated not only to be of great advantage to oui- people,
generally, but would afford facilities for the profitable employment
of a considerable number of immigrant employees. I intended to
suggest and urge the establishment of at least one cotton factory in
a central and eligible position, in every District, for the making up
of the raw material into yarns, the capital to be subscribed in lands
at a low valuation, and the lands to be sold to immigrants. To
make the profits of these establishments secure, thc planters to
pledge a certain number of bales of cotton to be yarned on toll.
I only indicate the outline of thc plan for your consideration, deem?
ing thc confused state of public affairs unpropitious for attempting
it at present. It seems that even in the city of New York there is
a perceptible want of sufficient laborers for the farmers in the
vicinity-the papers complaining that the better class of immi?
grants, however in large numbers they arrive, are already, before
they leave Europe, billeted for their destination in the Western
States, and that only the worthless and indifferent remain for local
engagements. This agrees entirely with my formerly expressed
opinions, although it seems that some of our planters have obtained
labor from New York. I had made arrangements with a gentleman
in Pennsylvania to furnish labor of any kind, and of a superior
character, to such planters as could comply with his terms-which
were very reasonable-and whenever I have been applied to I have
fumishod his address. But I still continue to believe that our
resuscitation must be founded upon the incurring of an immigra?
tion of small farmers, who will be followed by reliable laborers and
skilled mechanics of every description, and that the most practical
method of effecting that is direct steam communication with
European ports, proffers of cheap lands and a multiplication of our
I have the honor to be,
Your Excellency's obedient servant,
JOHN A. WAGENER,
Commissioner of Immigration.

A PKW WORDS TU THE LADIES.
Many ladies, particularly mothers nursing,
complain of a tired, listless feeling, or
complote exhaustion, on arising in thc
morning. On tho wife and mother de?
volves the responsibility of regulating the
duties of tho household. Uer cares aro
numerous, and tho mental as well as
physical powers are frequently called into
requisition. 8ho often linds her slightest
occupation a weary task and existence a
burden, while at tho same time she has no
regular disease. HOSTETTER'S STO?
MACH BITTERS, if resorted to at this
period, will provo an unfailing remedy for
this annoying lassitude. The effects of
this potcntagent aro soon seen in tho rosy
chook and elastic step of tue bead of tho
family, as with restored health and re?
newed spirits abo takes her accustomed
place in tho family circle. If this friend m
need bo regularly used, those depressing
symptoms will never bo complained of, and
not only would lassitude not bo expe?
rienced, but many diseases following its
advent bc avoided. As a MEDICAL
AGENT, it has no equal, while its pleasing
llavor and healthful effects havo made it a
general favorito. It is free from all pro?
perties calculated to impair tho system,
and its operations aro at once mild, sooth?
ing and efficient. All who havo used the
Ritters attest ita virtues and commend it
to uso. Juno 0 to
