COLUMBIA, S." C.
Sun lay Horning:. January 17, 1869.
Wt Still Live.
The following prophetic, beautiful and,
as we believe, truthful article, is from the
Banner of the South, Father Ryan's paper.
It should be universally read, and its prog?
nostications borne in miud, by those of our
people who feel cast dovrn at the condition
of tho country. The dark cloud is begin?
ning to show- its silver lining:
There is a very pretty classic fable, which
aptly illustrates tho present condition of
the South. It is related that Antienus was
a giant who gathered new strength in his
combats every timo ho was dashed to the
earth. The earth was his mother, and as
her son tripped upon her bosom, she in?
fused such strength in his veins that he be?
came inviuciblo to every foe. So with the
South. Cruel var laid her prostrate. Sho
was levelled with the earth, but the earth
that grows the sugar-cane and the cotton,
gave uer fresh power; and, to-day, thanks
to the dear old mother, her youth is re?
newed like the eagle's and she rises from
humiliation like AnUeus of old.
$300,000,000 in cotton; a sugar crop such
as has not been known in years; a yield of
tobacco that is something surprising; are
tho jubilant notes of that tiding which
reaches us of what has been done in the
South in the year jost past. Starting with
no debt, or but very little, working literally
from the ground up, the South is to-day
rearing her head anew among the peoples;
and, as her brow greets once more the sight,
all men can see that the chiefest stars in her
diadem are yet lustrous with hope, with
glory and with power. Who says she ia
powerless? Who whines we did wrong over
the sods that enshrine the departed brave?
Who now is ready to abase his face in the
dust and his hand to bis mouth ? If suoh
there be, let him depart out of Israel; for,
in this revival of glory, there is no part nor
lot for the weak knee, and craven, and sneak.
In the wonderful prosperity wherewith it
has pleased infinite mercy to bless us, in
the past year ; in the noble prospect there
reaches us of further bountiful harvest in
this; in the rush that is now making of our
quondam oppressors to invest their means
in this land ; in tho pledge these invest?
ments give that everyman who makes them,
or is interested in them, will henceforth,
though only from mere selfishness, cast his
vote against further anarchy, despotism
and wroug ; aye ! and in the almost solemu
hush that this oouud, as it were, of the
South iuto a promise of wealth and power
hu-i brought about-iuall of them, are writ?
ten tho lessou that was couveyed in tho
motto of the Southern Confederacy, Deo
Viudice; for, though it pleased Him to
abase the good cause, it was only for a mo?
ment, and now, in aaother way than we
thought, in a way that we knew not of, lo !
look yon, He is indeed our avenger, our
sustainer, and our guide to a speedy future
where tho stoutest of the enemy will not so
much as dare to wag his head at the rebel,
but shall rather seek to take him by the
baud, uud swear by that mustard-seed, bis
soul, that ho, iu good truth, never hated thc
South,, but loved it iu his heart, and was
ever inclined to think it had the right.
Is this picture overstrained? Lot us see,
Just twenty years ago, Hungary fell before
tho bayonets of Austria und the Czar. Mer
said its hope was gone, and, doubtless,
there wore many snug fellows who advised
acquiescence, aud accepted tho situation
oven as ono of old accepted of thirty pieces
But others there were who spat at aud do?ee
the cruel tyrant, aud hid deep in their heart
the memory of tho past and tho purpose o
tho future. Twenty years passed, aud nov
wo see, no later than this very last pas
mouth, that tho Emperor of Austria propi

of her people, gives Hungary her owu

Venice is mistress of herself. .Circum
stances, you see, are too strong for tyrants
The earth loves her children, and, when th
strong hand hurls them dowu, forthwitl

What has happened to Hungary, wha
Venice saw ooine to pass, is now euactiug ii
thc sweet South. Eight years since, th
war-drums throbbed their warning, au<
thc trumpet called the valiant to play th
mau. Four years since, tho smoke
wreaths melted away into thin air on th
field of battle, and now, in turu, the dar
clouds of treacherous oppression begin t
break. Not one of tho "loi!" but, who
ho heaiv the marvellous wealth of th
South, yearns to put his money there, an
not one of them, mark you, when he doc
put his god iu Southern land, or mills, c
cotton, but will be as staunch an opponer
of further iniquitous and paralyzing legi:
latiou, as the truest of us all. Quod comet

Mn. EDITOK: Mr. J. T. Sloan, jr., tho
Columbia correspondent of the Charleston
Courier, was expelled from tho House of
Representatives a fow days since, because
he hud boldly brought beforo the world
facts which cannot bo denied, relative to
the disgraceful action of one of tho colored
members towards the University of South
Carolina; because ho has unhesitatingly
brought to light the proceedings ot that
House; becauso ho has spured no pains to
oxpose any one who was deserving of public
censuro; because ho hus wielded his pen in
defence of his lost, but still beloved State,
giving accounts of many blows struck
against her Treasury; for those reasons he
has been honored iu tho eyes of thoso who
are respectable and educated in this State,
for his expulsion from that body, which Luis
preferred to grope in the darkucss of its
proceedings, and allow 110 one to remain in
the walls of tho building occupied by them,
who is fearloss enough to put into public
print tho truth-the brightest of all virtues
-concerning their proceedings.
THE ADVANTAGE OF MUKDEIVEIW.-In
view of the great number of murders daily
committed, the New York Herald speaks
"Hanging, if successful-that is, if it
break a man's neck-is thc most suddeu
death he can die. It ruptures the spine in
tho immediate neighborhood of the mad,ilia
obloi.gi.Ua, and thus breaks up the communi?
cation of the nerve force or vital power to
tho organs that carry on the human ma?
chinery. If the man's neck is not broken,
the first action of tho cord is to close the
trnchen, or wind-pipe, and thus stop tho
supply of air. It also compresses tho largo
veins in the neck which return blood to tho
heart-tho jugulars-but does not entirely
compress tho large arteries that carry blood
to the bruin, for these lie deeper. Thc im
mcdinto physiological effect is a congestion
of tho brain-u congestion not dissimilar in
its commencement from the congestion of
drunkenness, whioh is generally regarded as
agreeable, uud the consequence of this con?
gestion-a consequence that perhaps follows
in throe minutes after the pressure of the
cord is felt-is tho total abolit ion of con?
scious sensation. Tho mau may struggle
and writhe in n way terrible to sec, but
theso struggles oro liko those of convulsions
generally-painful only to tho beholder.
Therefore, if a man is hanged successfully
ho feols only tho one sickening sensation of
the plunge beforo he gets to the end of the
rope-three seconds of horror. If he is
hanged unsuccessfully, by strangulation, he
feels the same three seconds, and, in addi?
tion, between tho pressure of tho cord aud
deep congestion of the brain, three minutes
of swimming, drowsy, uncertain uneasi?
ness-at tho worst, three minutes and three
seconds; and this is all we give of misery tc
murderers. Compare with this tho pain
that man suffers beforo ho dies from anj
ordinary illness, tho drawn ont wretched?
ness of his three weeks of fever, tho days ol
agony with rheumatism and tho bent for?
ward, restless nights beforo this rheumatisn;
finally brings his damaged heart to a stand
still; tho months of slow death entailed bj
a cancerous stomach; iu fine, comparo th?
history of any fatal disease with tho shor!
shrift of hanging, and then reflect that om
humanity now obliterates the murderer'.1
three minutes and three seconds by the usi
of chloroform. Really it is a fine age, am
if a mau is tired of this world and wants t(
get out of it on easy terms, the thing fo
him to do is to cut his neighbor's throat am
be hanged-nuder chloroform."

well afford to bc deprived. Its illustration!
aro of thc highest order, and its weekly

its selections from foreign periodicals, tc

"lu presenting tho first number of th

but by literary men. It is a part-and th
greater part-of our purpose to present
faithful mirror of tho progress of the grei
industrial interests of tho country, within
regard to speciality; in other words, to nol
tho facts as they pass, and the inventioi
and improvements which roprcsent tl
material part of civilization; and, as dail
journalism is tho noting of events and cou
ments thereupon, our field will bo that i
taking note, pencil in hand, oi inventioi
and improvements, and tho estimation i
their bearing and value. Economical que
tions, questions pertaining to tho well-beii
of all classes of manufacturers and artisan
will rcccivo treatment rather from a matte
of-fact and practical point of viow than
accord with any philosophical dogmas,

for tho profitable study of our industrial i
terests-wo proposo to make ourselves

THE LADIES' BENEVOLENT SOCIETY von THE
j SICK Poon OK COHTMDIA.-Thc annual meet
j ing of this much needed charitable associa?
tion takeB pluce on Monday next. On tho
j occasion all its members aro earnestly in?
vited to attend, end those who cannot do
so, it is hoped, will not fail in scuding in
tho small amount ot their annual subscrip?
tion-(Si) one dollar. It ia hoped tho
society will receive many additions to its
list of membership. Impoverished as this
community lins been and still is, surely there
are few who cunnot spare one dollar a year
for tho poor. Not for thc well poor-for tho
poor who are able by daily work to earn at
least their daily bread, but for tho sick
tho dyiug poor-aro tho alms of thia society
strictly appropriated. When well enough
to work, no matter how poor, they are no
longer recipients of its bounty, and there
eau possibly exist no imposition in the be
stowment of these alms; for the city divided
into wards, with visiting committees ap?
pointed for each, individual cases are thus
seen isto before relieved. For the means
at its disposal, no system of charity can
possibly do more unqualified good than
this; and plausible objections against other
public charities cannot, by any possibility,
be made to this, and no excuse for not giv?
ing, can be predicated of the character of
this unobtrusive but most efficient charity.
Our city pastors and physicians well know,
from tho scenes of want and woo they aro
compelled to witness, how much this "Good
Samaritan" society has accomplished in the
past, for the relief of many ready to perish.
It is the oldest benevolent society in tho
city; wc hope it will never dio out, for not
only "the poor wo have always with us,"
but the sick- poor. Any contributions from
gentlemen or ladies, not desiring to become
actual subscribers, will bo thankfully re?
ceived by the Treasurer, Wo hope this ap?
peal will not bc made in vain.
FOREIGN COINS.-For rough estimates, as

tho originator of the celebrated PLANTATION
BITTERS, and that they wero manufactured
and sold by ono Pedro Martelle, an old
Spaniard, in the Island of St. Thomas, over
forty years ago, as every old sea captain can
testify. Now, eir, I can certify to the above
as being trae, for I have followed tho sea
for over forty years, most of the time,doing
business with the West Indies. These same
Bitters, differently put up and named,
were brought to my notice on my first trip
to tho Island of St. Croix for a cargo of
rum, and for years and years after my ship's
stores wero never without them. I always
supplied my family and many of my neigh?
bors with thom, and can truly say a better
