Sunday Morning. December 6.1868.
COMING SOUTH.-We have informa?
tion that prospecting companies are
passing through Washington city
almost daily, on their way South.
They are represented to be generally
men of ample means, and aro anxious
to invest a part of their capital in
Southern enterprises. Some wish to
bny land, others to establish manu?
factories, and others to engage in
anything tbut promises tho most
? < ??- ?
Ono of the most important ques?
tions that is likely to receive tho
early consideration of Congress at ita
next session, is the reduction of tho
national expenses. The monthly
statements of tho Secretary of thc
Treasury show that though vast sums
are accounted for under the head of
"receipts," yet the public expendi?
tures aro so very largo that tho an?
nual diminution of the public debt is
comparatively small. Of tho auiouut
actually due the Government under
existing laws, it appears, judging
from both official and e.r parie state?
ments, that considerablo sums arc
never collected, in consequence either
of the inefficiency of the officers en?
trusted with the collection of reve?
nues, or with their inability to cope
with the arts of designing and dis?
honest men; and from careful esti?
mates, it is very generally admitted
that could ali the revenues actually
due the Government be fully collected
and scrupulously accounted for, thc
national debt could be liquidated in
twenty years. Under the present
system of collection, officers arc ap
Sointed by a power remote from tho
istricts in which tho collections are
to be made, and that a power moro
eminently political than practical,
and heneo it would be not at ail sur?
prising if men unfitted for tho trusts
assigned them, were often appointed;
and it is a well known fact Hint in
many cases the officers selected ure
almost entirely ignorant of tho
business condition of thc com?
munities to which thoy uro as?
signed, as well us unacquainted with
tho people. Tho aggregate expenses
incurred in the collection of the in?
ternal revenue at tho present time
oxcecds $2?,000,000 annually, while
it is supposed that of the amount
actually dne tho Government $75,
000,000 annually romain uncollected.
It is apparent that in proportion as
these two items can be diminished,
just in that proportion would tho
public finances be relieved.
Ho! FOB SALT RIVER.-Tho editor
of the Reading (Pu.) Gazelle is a gay
bird. Hear him warble:
"We acknowledge the receipt of a
season ticket for passage to the head
of Salt River. We accept. We embark.
We take onr position proudly upon thc
deck, and amid the spray of tho dash?
ing waves wo raise our hat and bid a
last adieu to those we leave behind.
Wo have no tear for them. Our
oyen uve dry. We do not envy them.
Thoy have "drawn the elephant."
Our skirts are clear, and there is a
glorious consolation in tho thought
that we had no baud in it. Grant is
elected. Per contra, Seymour is do
feated. Very well. If the radicals
can stand it, we can. Wo go-we set
sail-wo depart-wo vamose-we
leave-we send-but we never sur?
render. While perambulating those
historical waters, wo will keep a
watchful eye upon those who are
running the machine in our absence.
We will oppose all that is, in our
judgment, wron?;. We will prepare
to guard against all national calami?
ties. Wo will prepare to receive all
national blessings. We expect Grant
to join us within n year. Wo will
confidently look for a "grand old
smash up" of tho entire radical con?
cern. Extreme measures will not
endure. They have been tried in
absoluto monarchies. They always
failed at last. Moderation must go
vorn. People can bo governed too
much. They will not stand it. We
go "up Salt River;" we go to meet
Griswold, ol' New York, and John I.
Blair, of New Jersey. These two
gentlemen differ from us in politic-;,
but wo aro not proud, and therefore
accept their company.
* * ?. *
"Farewell, rads; we bid you all
adieu. We won't stay long. We
will bo back in less than two yearn,
and von will then have the felicity ot
taking our places. All wo ask of you
is to keep tho country :u as good*or?
der os we will the crystaline halls of
tho pnlaco at the head of Salt River.
Adieu. Good-bye. Farewell. Tu tu.
It is said to bo a fact that Johnnie
McDonald, although employed cvory
day in Raleigh, as an oilicer of tho
Legislature, tokes but one meal per
day in that city. Ho walks to his
home, in Chatham County, forty
miks from Raleigh, overy ovening.
and back tho next morning; and still,
wo hear, he complains very much of
his seden I arv habits.
Mn, Enrrcr.: It must be gratifying I
to every well-wisher ot bis State to
witness tho awakening intorest in her
behiU. manifested by tho people of
Maryland and ' Pennsylvania, as
evinced by tho highly-respeotable
delegation of gentlemen from those
States, who como to examino into
ber condition and futuro prospects,
especially as connected with an in?
crease of labor and cupital. Tbe
State, at tho present timo, sadly needs
both these olemeuts of prosperity,
and ber peoplo will gladly welcome
both, and givo a hearty co-operation
to cvory movement mado to procure
this desirable result.
! South Carolina possesses advan?
tages and attractions which few other
States cnn present to capitalists and
emigrants. Herotofore, under ber
former system of labor, sbo was pe?
culiarly a planting State, that is, her
land proprietors cultivated large
plantations, instead of tho system of
farming, so generaly pursued in tho
Northern and North-Western States.
Labor was abundant, and tho plant?
ers, whotbor wisely or unwisely I do
not pretend to say, devoted their
agricultural resources to the cultiva?
tion of tho great staple-cotton.
Large tracts of laud, sonio of it very
valuable, wero left uncultivated; every
planter of large meaus bad moro land
than he could conveniently cultivate,
and all were sufficiently independent,
so that tbero was but little induce?
ment to part with land or to ofter in?
ducements to emigrants from other
Stutos or from Europe.
Now everything is chang* d. Thc
people of this Stale are impoverished,
tho result of fierce civil strife. That
portion of their capital which was
invested in their former labor was
swept away in a day, and tho whole
system utterly disorganized and
broken up. This revolution in tho
working system of tho Southern
States has bad its material results,
but will, it is to be hoped, eventuate
to tho best interests of the State nud
the prosperity and welfaro of ber
people. Thc best lauds can bc leased
by emigrants on thc most favorable
terms, or can bo purchased by them
for one-third of their former value;
iu short, as thc writer personally
knows, our planters ure disposed to
ofter any and every inducement to tho
industrious immigrants, either from
the North or from Europe; aud
should they accept of thom, our rich
lands would soon teem with abuu
duut provision and other crops,
not only sufficient to sustain
the homo population, but for ox
port aud sale. Agaiu, there is the
most abundaut water power, for
manufactories and mills,'in nearly
every water course, of any size,
within the State. Indeed, in the
vicinity of this city, there is .sufficient
water power to make Columbia a se?
cond Lowell, with the advantage ol
having tho raw material without tlx.
cost of transportation. Hero there
is an inviting field fora large amount
of capital aud its attendants, skilled
labor, mechauico and artizaus-a elast
of populationlwhicb we need to de
velop our extensive mineral and otbei
resournos, as well us to strei gtber
aud invigorate the energies of om
whole people. Besides these induce
ments, there is that of a bountifu
supply of the best timber, an im
portant item in the development o
the resonrcos of uuy country. Again
tbero is another attraction of tin
greatest importance, to those dis
posed to come and dwell with us
and that is the mildness uud salubrity
of our climate; with short and not in
clement wintors, and with a genera
exemption from any wide-spread ra
vages from pestilential epidemics
This is an important matter toinvn
lids, and indeed to all classes, whethc
they como from Europe or tho colde
latitudes of this couutr}'.
Political excitement has gem rall;
subsided in our midst, siuco tb
Presidential election, and our peopl
of every class cnn now go to work fo
thu benefit of the State. Politics, n
a business, pays badly to those wh
have to labor in any lield for suppoi
or maintenance; while tho wrath t
parties and party strife strike ut tb
most vital interests of every conn tr
where they may prevail. Our publi
men and legislators should drop mci
party legislation, and do all iu thei
power, liya wise and liberal systou
to encourage and foster every publi
enterprise; wo hopo and believe the
will do so.
It is but just to the present Execi
tivc of tho State, to express our bi
lief that in all measures calculated I
advance tho interests and prosperil
of thc people of all classes, they wi
have his warm and earnest co-open
tiou. Ilia inisl course in this re?pec
both before and sinco bis election i

and is a guarantee for tho futu;
for tho wiso administration oT b
department; and that in all thin;
ho will bc an important co-labor<
in the promotion of tho best i
tcrcsts of tho people among who
bis lot bas beef cast.
I bavo thus glanced hastily nc tl
condition and prospects of our b
loved State, uud hope that tho ft
words I bavo writteu may boprodu
tivo of good both to our own peon
and tho friouds wl,,> may come amoi
