Sunday Morning. December 20, I860 ?
Some ultra members of Congress,
together with a few Northern jour?
nals of the same stripe, not content
to await the slow procesa of Minister
Johnson's diplomacy for an arrange?
ment of the Alabaron claims, have re?
sorted to the plan of bullying Eng?
land into a settlement. Senator
Wade says he would stop palavering
over the matter, and make England
this proposition : "Here is the bill of
the depredations on our oommerco
by the Britiah-built and British-mu?
nitioned and provisioned and
manned rebel cruiser Alabama; and
wo want the money or your answer
yea or oar." This, says the New j
York Herald, ia the only settlement |
which will satisfy the American peo?
ple. We . are not satisfied that the
Herald or Mr. Wade spoaks the senti?
ments of the American people, or that
ono American in ton cares a far?
thing for the result of the claim
ono way or another; but aro certainly
"Very sar o that the damages claimed
on account of the Alabama are not to
be got ont of England in that way,
and that the sooner these Hotspur's
ourb their mettle, the further they
will be off from the contingency of a
back-down. England was never
known to yield anything under a
threat, and if the Government is
really in earnest in presenting these
claims, the more decently they go
about the matter, the better will be
the prospect of success.
Agricultural Development ol'the
MB. EDITOR: I read, in a former
number of the Phoenix, an article
signed "Virginia," setting forth some
of the inducements, agricultural, me?
chanical, Arc., that South Carolina
offers to those who would find plea?
sant homes and profitable invest?
ments for surplus capital. This is a
praiseworthy undertaking on the part
of "Virginia," and should be followed
up by others; for, if we would induce
capitalists to migrate hither and in?
vest their means in the development
of boundless resources, we should sec
to it that an unvarnished account of
the native characteristics of euch sec?
tion of our State, bo published for
the gnidance and information of those
in search of homes.
South Carolina is so diversified,
not only with rogard to scenory, cli?
mate, ?fcc., but also with respect to
her agricultural and mechanical faci?
lities-ranging, as it does, from thc
mountains to the sea-that it occurs
to me, the most fastidious taste might
be grrtified upon some spot within
her vast terri tor}*. As "Virginia" bas
shown a little (not hy any means un
unbecoming) selfishness in calling
attention to some of the inducements
o fie red in the vicinity of Columbia, I
proposo, in this article, to confine
myself principally to Spartanburg,
This is known as ono of the mountain
Counties of tho State, from its pros
imily to the Blue Ridge range. And
though there is no mountain within
the area of the County, it possesses
the clear sparkliug water, the fresh
balmy air, &zc, peculiar to the moun?
tain slopes. There is not, perhaps,
on earth, a spot more conducive to
physical vigor and longevity than
Spartanburg. Indeed, there is abso?
lutely no cause, of a local character,
for any disease whatever. The
streams, naturally fresh and pure,
move rapidly away, so that lhere aro
no stagnant pools, producing miasma
and creating fevers. This fact, of
itself, caunotbo too highly estimated,
especially by large capitalists, who
might desire to engage in extensive
manufacturing operations, giviug em?
ployment to hundreds, and perhups
thousands, of operators, upou whoso
vigor depends so greatly the success
of large undertakers. The soil of
Spartanburg is free to yield all kinds
of produce congenial to a mild and
temperate climate. Corn, cotton,
wheut, rye, oats, sorghum, Irish and
sweet potutoes, peas, and, indeed, all
the 8erenls, vegetables and fruits that
the wants of the people demnud, are
grown to perfection in this County.
As to tho amount of oue or nil of
these tl cnn bo grown per aero,
depends, aa in other countries, greatly
upon tho .seasons, manner of culture,
ko. At tho price the articlo at present
commands, there is perhaps as much
not profit iu tho culture of cotton as
in any of tho articles of produce enu?
merated. A largo portion of the soil
in Spartanburg is, perhaps, better
calculated ta retain manures than
any in the State, owing to its red,
still'foundation. Whilst manures ap?
plied to gray, porous soils, appear to
exhaust, with tho growth of our
crops, the effects of tho samo umouut
applied to tho red lands, may be dis
tu., '-"j ""on for three, four and evon
Whilst this County in second to
none in the State in the inducement?
it offers to the agriculturist, it is pre?
eminently adapted to manufacturing
operations. I doubt not, there is a
greater amount of undeveloped water
5over in Sparenburg than in any*
lsti.'ct embracing tibe same area in
the United States. There is. to-day,
on the Enoree River, alone, in this
County, enough of undeveloped water
power, whioh, if brought into active
play upon machinery, would give
employment to ten thousand opera?
tives. Indeed, the capitalist in search
of location to Invest in manufac?
tories, could not fail,within tho limits
of this District, to find a place adapt?
ed to all his wants. The Enoree, the
Tygers, Lawson's Fork, Fair Forrest,
and the Pacolete, togethen with other
smaller, tributary streams, all furnish
the most abundant facilities for
driving the heaviest machinery. And
then, these very desirable locations
can, in many instances, be purohased
at merely nominal sums, simply from
the fact, that prior to the war tho
peo plo of this country looked Bolely
to other parts of the world for manu?
factured goods, preferring themselves
to till the soil; while noxo, their for?
tunes are gone, and they have not
the means, if they felt a desire, to
bestow the attention to these fine lo?
cations which their merits demand.
The important fact, also, must not be
overlooked, thatSpartanburg County
will, at no very distant day, be se?
cond to no inland County in the
State with regard to her railroad
communications. Very many of
these fine water powers are in close
proximity to tho Spartanbnrg aud
Union Railroad, whioh is in success?
ful operation ns farWest as Spartan
burg C. H, The famous Air Line
Railroad-tho completion of which
is now beyond a doubt-is projected
to pass directly through the centre of
the County. Beside this, it is hoped
tho good sense of tho people of tho
State will, at no distant day, be di?
rected to the extension of tho Spar?
enburg and Union Railroad through
the mountain passes to Asheville, N.
C., thus securing an outlet to the
great North-west, so long desired by
tho entire", people, not only ef
South Carolina, but by tho citizens
of Tennessee, Kentucky and Ohio.
It is passing Btraugo that this enter?
prise has been so long neglected,
especially when wo aro assured by
the most skillful surveyors and engi?
neers, who have, from time to time,
survoyod the entire lino, that it is by
far the most practioablo line by which
it is possible to build a road forming
a connecting lino from Charleston to
the great West. It is iutimated that
this lino is not only ninety or ninety
five miles less iu distance from
Charleston to Cincinnati than the
line of the Blue Ridge Railroad sur?
vey, upon which not only tho State,
but private parties, have squandered
so much money, and upon which they
ara likely- to sqauder so much more,
but it is intimated that thc road via
Asheville could bo built, and the
desired connection formed, in ouo
half tho time, and with one-half
the moue}' required to complete the
Blue Ridge Road. Hence, I say, tho
time must be near at hand when the
attention of the people will be
aroused to tho importance of build?
ing this road.
Added to all this, it is to be ob?
served that the educational ad?
vantages afforded iu Spantauburg are
not to bo surpassed in tho South.
Tho Wofford College, one of the first
class institutions of tho United
States; tho Reidville institution; the
Limestone Springs Female College,
with male seminary attached, (all
located in this Count}*,) are all in a
prosperous condition, and furnish
the means for the most thorough and
complete education to both males
and females. The people aro high
toned and honorable, society exalted
aud reiiucd, and the community
comparatively free from political car?
pet-baggers and other disturbers of
tho publie peace.
It is toacountry like this that we
would extend the hand of welcome to
the honest and enterprising, from
whatsoever source thev may come.
A DREADFUL ACCIDENT.-Yesterday
afternoon, about 2 o'clock, there oc?
curred ono of tho most melancholy
accidents that has happened in our
city for some time. Mra. J. E. Os?
borne, residing at tho corner of Li?
berty and King streets, was engaged
in handling a can of keroseno oil,
with a lighted lamp near, when, by
some accident, tho light was commu?
nicated to tho oil, and an oxlposion
ensued. Before assistance could be
rendored, her clothes had burned to
a cinder, and she lay upon the floor
terribly burnt, and almost in a dying
condition. No hopes whatever are
entertained of her recovery.

RESTORATION OF SKNATOE LESLIE
OTHERWISE KNOWN AS THE "IRRE
PREserniiK."-It will be remembered
that, during tlio special session of the
General Assembly of this State,
which convened on the Otb day of |
July last, Senator Charles P. Leslie,
of Barnwell, otherwise known as the
"irrepressible-" doubtless, forsooth,
on account of his persistent and
open opposition to class legislation
of all kinds-became obnoxious to a
majority of his colleagues, and, on
the first semblance of a justifiable
opportunity, was brought to the bnr
of the Senate, and sentenced to six
months' suspension. By what par?
liamentary precedent or process of
law this judgment was enforced, no
one has yet undertaken to show, nor
has the fact that, during the opera?
tion of this personal punishment,
the County which sent Mr. Leslie
here, been deprived entirely of its
representation on tho floor of the
Sonate, ever received justification by
reasoning or rule. The opponents
of Mr. Leslie, however, attained their
end, which was to keep him "out in
the cold," until the nation has de?
cided whether or not they wero Se?
nators under the Reconstruction
Acts. The verdict came-they now
sit with undisputed authority as legis?
lators, and we are glad to fiud that
no matter what may have been the
causes of their action iu tho past,
justifiable or not, they yesterday dis?
played the good sense and magnani?
mity to restore Mr. Leslie to his seat,
having first modified the resolution
of suspension in such a way as to
terminate its operation with the close
of the special session. It is true that
this was not accomplished without
some preliminary iillibnstcring on
tho part of the discontented minority,
on Friday, as will be seen by refer?
en ee to our report of the proceedings
of that day; but the final action of tho
Senate iu the premises, was of such a
confirmed character, as to leave no
doubt that its purpose was to do
justice to tho whole people, while it
was also magnanimous to Mr. Leslie.
On resuming his scat, Mr. Leslie re?
marked, as near as our notes serve'
us, as follows:
Mn. PRESIDENT: It gives me great]
pleasuro to recognize you nt this |
time, in your new official capacity,
(nllud?ng4 to Mr. Montgomery as
President, pro lem.,) and equal plea?
sure, Senators, to greet you once
moro as your colleague and co-labor?
er for tho restoration of peace and
prosperity in this Stale. The resolu?
tion you have just adopted, rescind?
ing the resolution by which the I
exercise of my Senatorial functions j
was suspended, is gratefully appre?
ciated by me, not only on account of
myself, but of my constituents, par?
ticularly as it was unaccompanied by
any demand for apology or explana?
tion on my part. I feel, however,
that it is my duty to say that, when?
ever iu tho heat of debate, I have
ever employed lauguago personally
objectionable or offensive to Sena?
tors, unavoidably or collectively, it
has welled up to my lips from no in?
stinct of prejudice, nor by any desire
to derogate from your dignity as le-1
gislators. No gentleman over de?
liberately proffers an insult, and I
should feel personally culpable, did
I cherish the recollection of ono word
of disrespect to you, personally,
uttered by me. Your magnanimous
action leads mo to believe and hope
that, in the future, our counsels to?
gether may be harmonious, courteous j
and creditable alike to our charaotora
as legislators and men, and that the
fruition of our labors will be found in
tho passage of wiso and economical
laws, created on tho foundation of
equal and exact justice, alike to that
unfortunate class of pooplo who, by
the results of tho war, have become 1
tho wards of the nation, as well as to
those who have been their guardians j
and rulers in tho past. Let mo add,
in conclusion, Mr. President andi
Senators, in the words of that great
and good man, who stands to-day as I
