..Wa LOVB THBH NOT AS ONCE,"
Ac-The Herald directs attention to
the affectionate (?) manner with which
the rooontly elected negro Congress?
man from Louisiana is received bj
the radical House. '-Lo! the poor
Indian," may do Tory well, but when
the darkey demands the rights to
whioh they have always claimed he
waa entitled, they turn up their noses
and show very plainly by their con?
duct that "we lovo thee not as onoe
we did. " This is the extruoi.:
"At first, for a long, uncomforta?
ble time, he was left severely alone
upon one of the sofas in the rear of
the hall. The poor fellow, annoyed
at the social ostracism to whioh his
radical colleagues from the Northern
States most illogically condemned
him, arose and sought in vain for an
opportunit? to seoure a desk. Every?
where the radicals turned up their
noses as he approached, and at
length he felt compelled to leave the
floor of tho House in disgust and to
seek refuge in tho gallery behind tho
great clock, where a hundred or more
of his own race were congrega tod and
kept him ih countenance."
A private letter from a prominont
and well-known South Carolina Re?
publican, to a gentleman in New
York, says: "Our prospects in South
Carolina, and, I think, nil over the
South, aro now very encouraging,
both politically and materially.
Lawlessness has ceased almost as if
by meglo since the elections, and
everybody seems to adopt the motto
of Grant, 'Let us have peace.' Good
feeling seems rapidly returning be?
tween the two parties, and a promi?
nont Republican is treated different
from what he was only a month ago.
The financial prospects of the State
havo improved wonderfully within
tho last two or three weeks."
THB JANUARY MAGAZINES.-Put?
nam's Monthly Magazine, for January,
presents a rare table of contents.
Among the contributors aro Wm.
Cullen Bryant, Fennimore Cooper
and Lucy H. Cooper. G. P. Putnam
& Son, 661 Broadway, New York,
are the publishers. The now volume
begins with this number.
The Galaxy-Sheldon & Co., 498
and 500 Broadway, New York-is up
to the mark. It contains nearly 170
pages of interesting matter-some of
it a little sensational-furnished by
such authors as Eugene Benson, Mrs.
Edwards and others.
GEN. TOM THUMB AND TROUPE.
Speaking of those little folks, who
are to exhibit in Columbia, on the
19th, the St. Louis Republican says:
The renowned Gen. Tom Thumb
and his associates, consisting of Mrs.
Thumb, Commodore Nott, and
pretty little Minnie Warren, although
the veriest Lilliputians in size that
have ever been known, are Brobdig
nags in the way of attraction. They
give a levee each day at eleven
o'clock, one at three, and a third at
half-past seven in tho evening, yet
the Mercantile Hall is filled on each
occasion with adults as well as dele?
gates from tho juvenile population.
In addition to the exhibition of their
diminutive selves singly, in pairs or
altogether, and in a variety of poses
and costumes, they sing, dance and
amuse the and ?unces in a variety of
ways too numerous to mention.
Commodore Nutt is quito au actor
and mimic, and displays much
genuine vis c?mica in his personation
of the shilelah-brandishiug Irishman.
He is noticeably acute and sprightly
in all he does, and Miss Miunie is a
model of daintiness, prettiness and
propriety. Tom Thumb and his
wife demean themselves with a gra?
vity and sobriety becoming in mar?
ried people, yet add their quota to
the general entertainment. Our
readers will miss a raro spectacle if
they fail to to seo them.
MELANCHOLY SUICIDE.-Mr. Thos.
J. Price, sr., avery aged man, com?
mitted suicido in Macon, on Friday
night last, by taking poison. Ho was
well known as Assistant Bridgc
keeper of that city. He had been
luboriug under a tit of insanity for
si vi ral days previous to his commit?
ting this rash ?nd fatal act. Mr.
Price tarns a native of South Carolina,

Wc are informed that tho corn?
cribs of Mrs. Ann Vernon, of this
town, were burned at her plantation,
on Tyger River, about 2 o'clock cn
Saturday morning last. Tho cribs
contained about 1,000 bushels of
earn, the entire crop of this year.
This outrageous deed was certainly
tho work of an incendiary.

Messages Nos. 7 and 8 from 1
Excellency the Governor were a
nonnced and presented to tho Sena
by Mr. John Heart, Private Seorel
ry. Message No. 7 is ns follows:
COLUMBIA, December 15, 1868.
Tu die Honorable the President of t
Sin: The delay in transmitting t
report in relation to tho Uuivorsi
of South Carolina lias been <>.?<
finned by my desire to avail mys
of the results of tho deliberations
the Board of Regents, at its rece
annual meeting, on tho condition a
prospects of the institution.
I gather from thc prevalent t ne
tb osa discussions, and also from tho
opinions of intelligent citizens from
various portions of the State, that a
very general impression prevails that
there should be an essential modifica?
tion. In the constitntion of the go?
verning body of the University-the
Board of Trust?es. At present it
consists of thirty-eight members, Of
which eighteen are ex officio, includ?
ing the Governor ana Lieutenant*
Governor of the State, the President
of tho Senate and the Speaker of the
House nf Representatives, the Chair?
man of the Committee of Education
of the Senate and House of Repre?
sentatives, respectively, the Judges
of tbe Court of Appeals, the Circuit
Judges of the Courts of Law, und tho
Chancellors, and twenty other per?
sons elected by joint ballot of the
General Assembly, to hold their office
for four years, and until others shall
have been elected.
Tho cumbrous and unwieldy char?
acter of the Board, as at present con?
stituted, detracts materially from it?
efficiency and usefulness. Where
responsibility is divided and dissi?
pated among so many, it is almost in?
evitable that it should bo lightly ap?
preciated; and engaged as many of
the Trustees are in othor important
public duties, ana residing at a con?
siderable distance from the capital of
the State, it is not to bo wondered
at, that their obligations connected
with this appointment, often merely
complimentary, should bo frequently
overlooked and neglected. To such
an extent has this been carried, that
important meetings of the Board
have had to be repeatedly postponed
for want of a quorum, although but
nine members cf tho thirty-eight
were requisite for tho purpose. It
has been suggested that the remedy
for this evil is tho substitution of a
Board of fivo or seven Trustees, se?
lected fer their special capacity and
aptitude for tho position, and who
would be willing to devote more of
their time and nttoutiou to tho im?
portant trust confided to them.
It has, also, been suggested that
tho internal regulations of tho Uni?
versity would bo moro satisfactorily
managed if the election of the Chair?
man of tho Faculty were loft to the
members of tho Faculty themselves.
Tho experience of the past two
years admonishes ns that somo
changes in the tuition fees oro neces?
sary to popularize tho University,
and bring its advantages within tho
reach of tho greatest possiblo num?
ber of students. The present charge
of twenty-five dollars per term, for
each academical school, with ten
dollars additional for tho library to
each student, whether used by bim
or not, prevents many of the
youth of tho State from enjoy?
ing tho educational advantages of the
institution. It is deemed advisable,
therefore, to reduce tho tuition fees
for each school to one-half tho pre?
sent amount, and a corresponding
diminution iu tho charges for the
library and other extras.
In order, howover, that tho Pro?
fessors employed shall bo insured a
reasonable compensation for their
services, it is recommended that an
appropriation bo made by tho State j
of S2,000 per annum, for each of
them, and also to allow them tho
additional sum of $500 per annum
from tho fees for tuition, should a
sufficient amount bo received for
that purpose, and if not. thon tho
amount so received shall bo di
! vided among thc Professors pro
I r>tt<t. All moneys received for tui?
tion fees, and other sources of re?
venue, shall bo deposited with tho
Treasurer, and accounted for in his
annual report, or at any time when
called on by thc Board of Trustees.
Tho Board of Trustees havo au?
thorized a committee of tho body, if
deemed advisable, to arrange with
tho State for an increase of freo
scholarships, on tho basis of annual
appropriations for the salaries of the
A small appropriation-say about
$600-is required for necossary rc
vuirs to the University buildings.
I have submitted briefly such sug?
gestions in reference to tho Univer?
sity as I deem important to its pros?
perity and tho public interests, and
earnestly invite to thom your care?
ful consideration, pledging myself to
cheerfully co-operato in carrying out
the policy which may bo designated
There are many matters of detail
which will appropriately come np for
the action of the now Board of Trus?
tees, should tho changes recom?
mended bo adopted by you. Very

A HEEMAPnEODiTE. -In Vienna,
Catherine Hohnann, a native of Ba?
varia, is exhibiting herself at tho
present time to tho physicians and
naturalists of tho Austrian capital.
She is neither a man nor a woman,
but a lus tis natura?, a caso of hernia
phrodisia vera laleralis. A journalist
who saw ber, writes to tho Vienna
Press: "I pitied the poor creature. *
Although in good health, and of ro- \
bust, even beautifully shaped form,
she sat boforo mo in deep distress
and wept. And she has wept al?
ready a great deal in her joyless life.
She loved aman for twelve years; he
loved her, too, and even proposed to
her to go with him to America,where
nobody would know of her misfor?
tune; he would live with her there
and bo happy with her. But she re?
fused ^to accept his j generous offer,
saying she would not make him un?
happy. And then sho loved, dread?
ful to say, for seven months-a
young girl. Both of them were
greatly attached to each other, until
the .young girl finally turned from
her and married. 'From this time
forward,' says tho poor hermaphro?
dite, 'I could no longer look at the
girl; I hated her.' The most con?
flicting feelings always surge in her
breast and torment her heart. She
feels love for both sexes, and does
not belong to either. 'What shall I
do hero on oarth?' she exclaimed;
'what am I? In my lifo, an object
of scientific experiment, and, after my
death, an anatomical curiosity!' "
Tho rumors of vast unexplored
gold fields in South-east Africa aro
generally credited. Tho Governor of
Natal, some timo ago, expressed his
firm belief of the existence of the
precious metals in that district, and
recently a member of the legislative
council writes that there eau now be
scarcely a doubt that a large region,
bordering and extending to tho North?
ward of tho river Limpopo, has for
ages yielded gold to tho natives, who
have obtained tho precious metal by
means of tho simplest processes and
thc rudest appliances.
