COLUMBIA, S. C.
Sunday Morning, July ll, 1869.
Tho meeting of tho citizens, to be held
on Monday next, at the Court House, nt
12 M., is of such signal importance that
a full and earnest attention is heartily
recommended. This meeting is for tho
purpose of considering tho subject of
State taxation iu its entire bearing-a
subject in which every one is interested.
It is apprehended that tho statements
pronounced by Governor Scott in his ex?
traordinary letter will be thoroughly
sifted aud analyzed at this meeting; and
acting on this presumption, we shall al?
lude only to a few of tho salient points
of this wonderful tissue of insolence, ar?
rogance aud falsehood of Governor Scott.
Ho says in paragraph 2:
"The course provided by law in such
cases is for the complainant to appeal to
tho County Auditor, with a statement of
bis case, who will forward it to the Au?
ditor of State, who has full power to
make any abatement or correction which,
in his judgment, is just and proper. As
to the general chargo, which is inferrible
from your note, that tho taxation is too
heavy, I havo to say that tho amount
provided for is required by tho necessi?
ties of tho State, and must bo collected
to meet its exigencies, and to fulfill effi?
ciently its engagements and responsibili?
The Auditor of State, by this process,

adviser does not caro to go. Suppose tho
Auditors do not corroct or abate, but
confirm the actsjof tho assessor and board
-a way of thinking which wo believe is
normal with the now auditors of this
Stato-Gov. Scott reasons that tho un?
fortunate tax-payer has gotten to the
end of his road, and completely ignores
the existonoe of such institutions as tho
courts of justice of South Carolina.
What are the exigencies and necessities
of the State, which tho Executive

Borne of them-a e-mali portion of the

sioner, constabulary and tba elevation

pered, the Executive entertains a peca
liar aud tender interest. To do just loe
to these relations of the State, says this
inexorable fate, ."you mest pay your
In reference to the over-valuation of
property by the Assessors, the Governor
expresses himself: . ?
"And notwithstanding the lamentations
about the over-valuation of lands, there
are but few of the owners who would con?
sent to sell them at their assessed valua?
tion. The low prices occasionally brough t
at sheriffs' aud bankrupts' sales are no
criterion of the value of the property
disposed of, as there is generally a na?
tural sympathy among the people pre?
sent for the unfortunate debtor, anet he
is permitted to purchase his property,
without opposition, at his own price."
There are thousands of tax-payers who
would gladly and cheerfully sell their
property for the value assessed, but that
is not in the programme of Scott Sc Co.
to pay the inflated valuation, nor even to
make a fair and equitable bid for the
property-for why pay anything approx?
imating to the real values of the article,
when by quietly waiting, the unfortunate
viotim shall become entangled in the
meshes of their web, and iu due course of
law, fall an easy prey to the Land Com?
missioner, who awaits tho certain and
sure denouement of tho drama. The
Executive actually trades on the hu?
manity of our relations, and reprobates
that sympathy and 3harity which is a
crowning glory of mnnkind, whioh
prompts the outsido world to restrain
their bids from affecting the unfortunate
debtor. What can a peripatetic politi?
cian, an itinerant peddler for office,
know of tho kindly relations with whioh
we Southern people regard each other's
distresses. Gov. Scott affects a spirit of
candor and frankness, and writes:
"There is no doubt that there aro im?
perfections iu the tax law, aud irre?
gularities in the execution of it. For
the present, individuals have the righi
of appeal against what they deem in?
equitable aud unjust, and I have nc
doubt such alterations and modifications
of the law as will be shown to be ne?
cessary, will be made at the next session
of the Legislature."
We agree with bim os to the imperfec
Hons and irregularities, but we know bj
sad experience that every flaw in th<
construction and execution of this infa
mous Act militates to our prejudice, anc
inures to tho benefit of Governor" Scot1
aud his parasites. What the Execntiv?
terms "unpatriotic efforts being mnde t(
induce the people to believe tho systen
of taxation ns unjust and oppressive"
which wo cull the indignant effort fa
existence-ho uses with ingenuity,1 ' fo
an implied panegyric upon the Legisla
turo and R. K. Scott, for lifting the ere
dit of tho State, the vindication of he
financial resources, tho retiring of th
floating debt, and a host of public bone
fits, including tho enhancement of th
value of the State bonds, for which Gov
Scott entertains so parental au affection
not forgetting the Blue Ridge Boad
which, too, has a home in his Excellen
cy's expansive heart. The wish whicl
the Governor expresses for the prosperi
ty of our State sounds, in the languag
of our own McDuffic, "like the bugl
blast of the robber baud." There sha!
not remain a doubt in regard to ono fea
turo of tho bill, declares our Executive
You shall pay your taxes, and the duiy o
tho tax gatherers is plain and imperative
"It is to press their payment steadil
and perseveringly, and to rigidly enforc
tho penalty of twenty-five per cent, o
delinquents. If these officers aro intel
rnpted or interfered with, it is inonu
bent on mo to see that the laws of th
State are promptly and faithfully ex<
This dilemma has but one hom, an
thc unfortunate tax-payer is upon it. H
must pay his taxes, or have "twonty-fh
per cent, rigorously enforced," and the
pay tho taxes, with tho addition of tl
black mail. Should these officers be ii
tortured with in pursuance of their di
ties, declares this mighty potentate, '
('l'?tat c'est moi,') shall see that tho ku
aro faithfully executed." So intimate
blended is his Excellency with the Sta
and her finances, so special his intere
thereto, that whilst condemning tl
morality, wo acknowledge tho positic
taken per sc is natural and what wo e
pocted from Governor R. K. Scott. Tl
allusion of tao Executivo to factious pc
sons, and his threat in reference to tl
interposition of tho Courts, is, in 01
opinion, tho blackest featuro of his lc
ter. Does ho pronounce factious tho
persons laboring under on exhorbita
and oppressive system of taxation, a
pealing for relief to those sources whi
in every civilized country constitute t
bulwark of civil liberty? Can he, wi
any show of decency, call those reckle
?and thoughtless moo, who cry to the
Courte-tho sacred shrine of justice, the
borne of protection and guardianship of
individual right and property, the insti?
tutions foundod and fostered by th*
united wisdom of centuries-for relief,
and who only ask a fair adjudication and
decision noon the issue submitted? It
seems so. It is BO, tor this Carolina
we beg pardon, thia Ohio-Czar fulmi?
nates his imperial ukase and any*. "Con?
sult the Courts, and I will convene an
extra meeting of the Legislature and
pass such laws as will superoede the de?
cisions of the Courts." He tells us
the Auditors of Oounty and State shall
be sufficient to decide the issues.
EsBay the Courts, your natural defence,
and I over-ride you, the Courts, and
aught else, by the weight of my iron
hand. And this new Aminidab Sleek is
impious enough to invoke Divine aid to
countenance and aid his wicked designs;
he unblushingly alludes to open vio?
lence and covert fraud; ond, with a rare
humility, proclaims that South Carolina,
in "my keeping," has found her savior.
We know not where the "responsibility
and odium," of which Governor Scott
so flippantly discourses, "may end."
We do know where it commences, and
we have our own peculiar faith in a Di?
vine Providence, which will at some day
bring to Scott and his co-pluuderers the
end which they so richly deserve. We
have written of this infamous letter and
its infamous author with no "hated
breath." We have called attention to
his scandalous, odious threat of suppres?
sion of the Courts, and we conclude by
saying, Governor Scott's own lotter fur?
nishes tho scourge in every "houest hand
to lash the - through the land."

MB. EDITOR: The man who has been
elevated J (?) by the votes of seventy of
eighty thousand ignorant negroes to the
position of Governor of this State, came
ont, in your paper of the 8th, with an
article in reply to a note previously ad?
dressed to him by three of the tax-payers
of Colombia, in whioh he makes a weak
effort to jnstify the course of his State
Board ol Equalization in nearly doubling
the value of the taxable property of the
State. His first ground of exonse is the
ignorance, whioh ha characterizes by the
milder term inexperience, of the assessors
of the taxablefproperty of the State.
Now, if ignorant and unsuitable men
were appointed to assess the property,
who is responsible for their appointment?
Why. Bobert Iv. Scott, and he alone; for
it wns he who appointed them, and it
was his duty to know that a man was
competent before appointing him to an
office of so much importance. The writer
of this article happens to know that in
many instances competent men were re?
commended to him by the Representa?
tives to tho Legislature from various
Counties, and that he paid no more at?
tention to their recommendations than
he would have, paid to tho barking of a
dog. Now, the presumption is n fuir
one, that these Representatives knew
better than did his Excellency, who, of
the citizens of their Counties, were pro?
perly qualified for tho discharge of the
duties of the office of assessor. Why,
then, did he not give some heed to their
recommendations? Simply, because these
Representatives, who made the recom?
mendations, were Democrats, and repre-,
sented a white constituency, and there
were iu their Counties a few contemptible
scalawags, who bud to be fed from the
public crib, no matter whether they were
qualified for an office or not; aud so they
were appointed to tho offices for which
they possessed, according to Gov. Scott's
own showing, no qualification. The Go?
vernor vouchsafes, in his article, the in?
formation that the bouds of the State
have risen in value, in a comparatively
short period, from 25 cents to 73 cents on
the dollar. But there is ono point, on
which ho makes no revelation, on which
some of tho tax-payers would like to have
a little light, merely to gratify an inno?
cent curiosity; and that is, how many
thousands of dollars worth of these State
bonds B. K. Scott, the carpet-bag stock?
jobber, bought while tboy wero down to
23 cents, about the payment of which
Governor Scott is so very solicitous, and
expresses so much patriotic determina?
tion, now that they have so greatly ap?
preciated in value. Perhaps a revelation
on this poiut might tend to enlighten us
a little as to tho cause of Gov. Scott's
great anxiety to have the property of the
State assessed at its maximum value.
But the Governor seems to have be?
come somewhat inflated with the idea
which gave rise to a somewhat famous
declaration by one who had rather sud?
denly attained to a position of eminence:
"1 am tho State." Ho seems very con?
fident that he has all the trumps in his
own hand, inasmuch as be proceeds, in a
very dogmatio manner, to inform us how
he intends to operate the machinery by
whioh to squeeze the taxes out of ns.
He hints, by way of inducing the eels to
lie still aud be skinned quietly, that the
operation may become much moro pain?
ful, should tboy happen to squirm a little
nuder tho infliction. Ho suj's: "It may
bo that repressive measures of tho cha?
racter alluded to, should there be a ne?
cessity of resorting to them, will add
largely to the burdens of the tnx-payerff,
and be productive of agitation and ex?
citement." By way of administering a
counter auodyno to the Governor's
nerves, we would merely suggest to him
that, should he attempt, through the
machinery of a corrupt and venal Legis?
lature, to substitute bis dictum for l&w,
in order to torture the already over-bur?
dened tax-payers of this impoverished
land into a compliance with his avari?
cious designs, and thus produce "agita?
tion and excitement," tho tendency of
such a couree might jwssibly bo, instead
of running our State bonds, by tho 1st
of January, up "practically to par," to
run them down to twenty-five cents, or
even less, on the dollar. "Let us have

PERSONAL.-We had the pleasure of a
visit, on Saturday, from Major Samuel
R. Chisman, of Virginia, who is at
present on a business tour South in tho
interest of prominent business firms of
Now York. Major Chisman was in active
service during tho entire war, and dur?
ing the last year and at tho close of the
struggle, was Chief Quartermaster at
Greensboro, where he had charge of one
of the largest magazines of quarter?
master's stores in the Confederacy. By
his connection with the armies of Gens.
Lee, Johnston and Beauregard, his per?
sonal acquaintance with the officers and
men of those armies was very extensive,
and by his promptness and correctness
in tho transaction of business, and by
his uniform kindness and accommodat?
ing spirit, he made friends of all with
whom he had either official or personal
