Tuesday Morning, July 20,
Tb? niue Kidge Railroad.
lu this morning's issue will be found
copied a letter relating to tbe Blue Bidgo
Railroad, penned from Columbia to the
Charleston Daily News. The writer
states that upon the most invulnerable
evidence his assertions are made. As?
suming that the premises are correctly
stated, the conclusion is patent that Go?
vernor Scott bas developed in a new di?
rection those viowa of finance so pecu?
liarly his own-which means, let the
common interests of the Stato go by the
board, so that his own aro protected. He
obeys blindly the injunotion, "Pot
money in thy purse, honestly if thoo
canst; bat' pot money in thy purse."
The wonderful discrepancy between the
bids, one falling below the estimate of
the Chief Engineer, tho additional issue
of bonds, creating the startling interest
charge of $700,000 in coin annually, the
flection of tho. highest bidder for award
of the contract, and, add to it, the ex?
orbitant cost of tho road material, con?
sented to in tbe contract, and the sup?
port of Messrs. Harrison and Cameron
in favor of the lowest bidder, puts the
agenoy of Governor Scott in a most in-,
jurious and damaging light to himself.
The News is disposed to forbear con?
demnation of Governor Scott until be
bas spoken in bis defence. The very re?
cent action of Governor Scott iu refer?
ence to the taxes; his feeble letter on that
subject, judged ns a State pnper, would
have destroyed, if it existed, the slight?
est respect for his Excellency's abilities,
whilst its insulting and truculent charac?
ter as a communication, and coupled
with offensive threats, have destroyed iu
us any feeling of charity which induces
a withholding and forbearance of judg?
ment. So strongly does the correspond?
ent of the Nevos assert his facts, and so
confidently does he vouch for their truth,
that we cannot do otherwise than be?
lieve, with the record of tho Executive
staring us in tho face, that Gov. Scott
has boen feathering his nest from tho
Bluo Bidgo Road; and we eic not feel
that wo do His Excellency any injustice
in anticipating uny communication on
tho mutter, and pronouncing judgment
in advance on so opon n fraud and swin?
dle upon tho people of South Carolina.
Gov. Scott seems to think that taxation
is tho "ready relief," which is to solve
every financial difficulty of tho State
he makes the many sutler for the benefit
of tho one; and we feel it a sacred duty
to make exposure of, and express our in?
dignation at, every symptom of fraud
and injury to our citizens which comes
under our experience.
How rr WAS DONE.-We recommend
tho following cards to tho attention of
Mr. Forney. He will learn how persons
were forced to join tho leagues:

WATCH HIMI-When satrap of South
Carolina, Gen. Canby pronounced against
the administering of tho test oath to
members of Legislature. Now, as satrap
of Virginia, he emphatically eats hiu
words, and pronounces for it. If not
over-ruled, the people of Virginia may bo
prepared for a stupendous cheat, iu spite
of the famous victory. As Dr. Sharpe,

Korti? and. Soot H-?Ti?? ir Conditio* ?nd
The Abdications throughout tho coun?
try, vjplitical, commercial, agricultural
and Juanoialj?n pbfht to a great and
staxjpng revival of file prosperity of the
Sooth. TPhert "never wan a period when
the conditions of the two seotions of the
Union might bo compared .with more
advantage to the circumstances and pros?
perity of these Southern States. Our
Northern brethren have got nearly to
end of their row, or, at least, have been
brought to n perception that, their pro?
gress and prosperity are not unlimited
and their resources inexhaustible. For
some years past, everything has been in
their favor, and everything against us.
There is a perceptible turn in the tido.
It is now the South's opportunity.
Over-trading, extravagance, luxury, debt
and a plethora of oheap ourrency, and a
monopoly of the favors, jobs and facili?
ties afforded by tho Government, have
brought about their legitimate fruits.
Money begins to be scarce and tight;
exportations decline; manufactories ore
working on short time, and the gran?
deur, extravagance and luxury which
awhile go prevailed in every part of tho
North, are greatly shorn of their preten?
sion and display. Shoddyism is nearly
snuffed out. There is no longer a vast
army to supply. Nor is there? a great
demand for the productions of tho North.
Tho grain, their chief exportublo article,
is not in demand iu the old world at pay?
ing rates. Producers and manufacturers
begin to writhe under the enormous ex?
actions of tho Government. They per?
ceive the impossibility of a rivalry with
the cheap labor of other countries. Even
railroads begin to be discovered to bo
expensive means of transportation for
their crude and manufactured produots.
On the whole, the New Orleans Times
concludes, it is palpable that everything
at tho North is over-done, and that the
re-action is about to begin in favor of
our section. Tho South, on the other
band, is arousing herself, "Uko a giant
refreshed." Sho has recovered, in a
large measure, from tho ruin and disas?
ters cf tho war. Tho trials and afflic?
tions of that event, and its consequences,
bavo produced a great chango in the
character of our people. A love of
luxury, extravagance and pride have
ceased to bo reproaches of our section.
In their place, patience, industry nud a
uewly-awakeued spirit of progress aud
enterprise have become marked charac?
teristics of the people. The products of
our section are an unfailing reliauco for
tho early resuscitation and enrichment
of tho South. Cotton, tobacco nnd su?
gar, the agricultural commodities of tho
South, aro in demand all over the world
at highly remunerativo prices. We have
no rivals of whom wo need bo afraid.
There is nothing which labor extracts
from tho soil that pays better than these
articles; nor is there any reason to fear
un over supply. The demand of tho
teeming old nations of tho world will
always keep pace with the production.
Other vast resources of the South aro
now understood and appreciated, and
the work of their development will soon
begin. It is not in any spirit of exulta?
tion or selfish sectionalism, but in view
of patent facts und proofs, that wo hail
thc brightening dawn of a new prosperi?
ty in tho South. All that we need is a
stable, solid and honest government,
assured political and personal rights,
and a better administration of the laws.
To these should bo added a spirit of
liberality, conciliation and cordiality on
tho part of the people toward those who
come to participate in our labors and en?
terprises, and to share with us the wealth
and power and prosperity of this highly
QUICK DESPATOH.-The town of He?
lena, in Montana, was nearly destroyed
by fire two months ago. To-day, there
is scarcely a trace of the fire in the prin?

twenty-four new buildings, worth not
less than $300,000, many of them sub?
stantial brick and stone buildings, have

indeed, especially whon it is stated thal

"Lox," the correepoadent of the
Charleston .ZVW^ writes ea follows:
ContJKnia, Joly 15.
I know thgt yonr papar ha? supported
tho Bine Ridge Railroad through thick
and thin; but un article apon tho Ashe?
ville, nnd Spar tanbury Railroad, which I
read in the New? a abort time, ego, en?
courages me to believe that yon will not
refuse to expose the hage job which has
been devised in connection with the
Blue Ridge Railroad. My information
comes from a first-rate source. The
statements I make can be proved to be
truo, and will convince the people that
the Blue Ridge Railroad Ring may hold
up itu head by the side of the great
Whiskey Ring, and not lose by tho com?
parison. I believe that the whole scheme
lins but oue object-to put money iu the
pocket of Dr. R. K. Scott, the so-called
Governor of Sonth Carolina. Why
should he care if $8,000,000 or $10,000,
000 bo added to the State debt? All that
he cares for is to make hay while the sun
shines, and he will do it if we lot him
I need not remind you that the Legis?
lature in September last passed a bill au?
thorizing the guarantee of ?4,000,000
for tho completion of the Bluo Ridgo
Railroad, and that at the meeting of the
company held lately in Charleston it was
determined to mako the principal and
interest of the guaranteed bonds paya?
ble in coin. About the end of June,
advertisements were published iu '.bo
State papers, and in tho Northern und
Western papers, calling upon responsible
persons to como forward and contract
for building the road from Anderson to
Knoxville, a distance of 152 miles, pay?
ment to be made in tho aforesaid coin
bonds. Colonel Low, the chief en?
gineer, was to have plans and specifica?
tions ready, and tho bids wero to be
openod at Columbia, on July 8. The
Chief Engineer was very close and gave
no information ns to what his estimate
of the cost of building the road was;
yet, queerly enough, it turned oat after?
wards that tho bid of one contractor was
in every item so little above, or so littlo
below, the estimate of the Chief En?
gineer, that the total bid was just abont
Whon the 8th came, the bidders, or
their representatives, met in Gov. Scott's
office at Columbia, and it was found that
bids bad boon submitted by the follow?
ing persons: J. M. Christy A Co., Criss?
vill, Patterson A Sellers, Dudley, Bard?
well A Co., J. A. Hunt, of North Caro?
lina; D. Tyler Sc Co., of Pennsylvania;
B. D. Hasell, of New York, and J. D.
Chnmplin, of New York, and one other.
All tlie bidders named were resposiblo
persons, and could guarantee tho fulfil?
ment of their contracts. The lowest bid
for tho work wus, in round numbers,
87,500,000, and the highest 810,000,000.
This last was the bid of Crissvill Sc Co.
There was ono higher bid, but it was un?
derstood to have been put iu only that
Crissvill's might not be tho highest.
When tho bids bad been exposed, Go?
vernor Scott said ho found that it would
take at least ?8,000,000 to completo tho
road, and bo could only command $1,
000,000. It would not do to spend any
of this, as it was his intention to apply
to the Legislature to iucrense tho guaran?
tee to the full amount required. [The
engineer's estimate was, I think, $8,500,
000."! This caused the contractors to
prick their ears; one of them, however,
was io the secret. Mr. McClure, repre?
senting Crissvill Sc Co., came forward
and said that he bad known the views of
the Governor, and had so arranged his
bid as to ndvauco tho company at once
$300,000 to pay off its outstanding lia?
bilities, and that he would carry on the
work for nine months, at a cost of about
$1,000,000, without touching tho bonds.
Tho other contractors very properly
objected to this way of doing business.
They said that they had not known what
Scott's views were and asked to be al?
lowed to modify their bids, so as to be
able to offer the same advances. Scott
could not refuse this. The contractors
revised their bids and submitted them
afresh, Crissvill ?fe Co.'s being still of the
bona fide bids the highest. All the con?
tractors were then bowed out, except
Crissvill ?fe Co., who seemed to occupy
permanently the Governor's back room.
When the uninitiated were ont of the
way, there was a palaver between Scott
and Crissvill & Co. After some talk they
agreed to reduce their bid to about $9,
000,000, which was nccepted. There were
other bids as responsible in every way, al
$8,000,000 and less, but the $9,00O,00C
bid was accepted. Is Saott in partner?
ship with Crissvill? He certainly wat
not in partnership with tho bidders al
1 $7,500,000 and $8,000,000.
' Now let us look at tho prices nt whiol:
' tho work was proposed to bo done.
Tho estimates for oartk-work, pei
' cubic yard, ranged from 28 to 45 cents,
1 Crissvill k Co.'s price was 40. [Whei:
1 there is any bid at a higher price thai
theirs, it may bo set down to tho nccoun
'. of the "covering bid" put in to proven
Crissvill A Co. being at tho top. J Foi
' grubbing and clearing, per nero, thobidi
1 were from $80 to 3175. Crissvill's bk
was $100 For loose rock excavations
tho bids wero from 50 cents to $1. Criss
5 vill's bid was 70 cents. For solid rock
1 tho bids ranged from $1.75 to $1.90
1 tho Inst being Crissvill's. For tunne
. excavation tho bids ranged from $9.7;
' to $10 per yard. Crissvill's bid wai
1 $15.50. For first class masonry tho bid
' were from $12.55 to $20. Crissvill's bit
was $18, Now I come to the cream of it
? For spikes and chairs perpennd, respoc
i tively, tho bids wero from, 7 ?nd^,1.
i cents to ll and 15 cents. These spike
j and chairs are worth about/tr<;rrm/a//<v/
te a pound in New York. For rail
iron, tbe bida were from $100 to
JjsT ton. OriswriH'a bid waa $135.
ia iron can be bought and delivered
J=J Anderson for ninety-txco do?,tfe a ton.
Orisavill, Scott Sc Co. make a profit of
OvXf forty-three dollars on each ton of
railroad iron. Upon the iron alone
there would be a profit of about $500,
Now, I oak you, Mr. Editor, ie not this
a hugo job? First of all, we were told
that the rood would cost 86,000,000 to
complete it. Now, it is to coat ?9,000,
000. The Legislature hos given $4,000,
000, (besides the 84,000,000 already
spent,) and is to he asked to give $5,000,
000 more. Responsible men offered to
build the road for $7,500,000, yet, the
$9,000,000 bid was accepted. Here is
$1,500,000 thrown nway-absolutely
thrown away. Who cnn tell where the
demand for money will stop? Will Scott
Sc Co. ever be satisfied? Why not spend
$20,000,000, and then the commissions
will be twice ns large? I say that tho
whole business is a job from beginning
to end. It must be stopped, and I cali
on you, sir, to expose it to the eye of the
people. Let them see tho way in which
they are being bamboozled. Let us see
whether the Legislature will give Scott
& Co. the spending of many more mil?
lions in which they have no share.
It is proper for me to add that Scott
alone is responsible for making this $9,
000,000 contract, Mr. George S. Came?
ron, the banker, of your city, and Gen.
Harrison, tho President of tho Blue
Ridge Railroad, who, with Scott, are
members of tho Executive Committee,
did all that men could do to have the
lowest responsible bid accepted. They
were powerless. Scott for tho State, und
Mayor Pillsbury for Charleston, repre?
sent about niueteen-tweutieths of the
stock of the company, and can work
things as they please. Tho other direc?
tors of the road eau do nothing, and tho
sooner they leave so rotten II concern the
better. They cannot afford to ba asso?
ciated with Scott, who wields all the in?
fluence and enjoys al! tho sweets, while
they must sham the public responsi?
SOCIAL EQUALITY ZN THE NOBTH.-On
no spot in the United States is the
colored race so well off as in the South.
These people have been taught that the
North is their Paradise; but thoso who
havo tried tell us that they would prefer
to be slaves iu the South to such free?
dom and equality as they aro allowed to
enjoy in tho North. Indeed, there is at
tho North an inveterate race prejudice
against the black man that is not con?
fined to parties. Radical Ohio voted
50,000 majority against negro suffrage in
that State; Michigan, moro radical still,
voted it dowu by even a larger majority.
Badical love for the black man is a hol?
low sham. They love him nt the South,
because they eau uso him to injure the
South and make that section vote tho
radical ticket. If n colored man doubts
it, lot him go to Boston or to Washington
and try to dine at Sumner's or Butler's
tables, or associate with their guests in
their parlors. Tho innocent colored man,
relying upon their professions to carry?
out such u purpose, would be shown tho
door, and probably kicked out of it.
! Au example of how tho North feels on
this subject of social toleraucennd equal
j ity, has lately been furnished in New
I York. Somo weeks since, tho editor of
the A nti-Slavery Standard addressed some
letters to the principal hotels of tho Im?
perial City, in order to procure lodgings
for a lady of Massachusetts, having for?
tune, intelligence and education, and
also for her son, a young gentleman who
lind received a liberal education, both
slightly colored. The following aro the
replies that ho received:
St. Nicholas-"Never received such a
request before. The inquirers would do
better to apply in person."
Metropolitan-"Very sorry, but im?
possible to comply; should lose most
likely all our guests if we did so."
Hoffman House-"Will send au an?
Everett House-"Tho proprietor is in
Massachusetts; will send au answer on
his return on Saturday."
St. James-Sends a letter refusing.
Brevoort House-Sends a letter re?
Fifth Avenue-"Will givo an answer
Westminster-"Not possible. All our
guests would leave if we did so."
Clarendon-"Impossible to make any
promise, for we are at this moment fall.
Besides, our guests aro for tho most part
persons who spend part of each year with
us, and are not going and coming, as in
other hotels."-Mobile Register.
An electrical blasting machine has

neously and withont danger. It will
work either with nitro-glycerine or pow?

DECIIEASE OF THE N ECHOES.-Dr. Rob?
ertson, a distinguished citizen of Texas,
informs tho Galveston News that ho has
taken pains to keep a record of tho vital
statistics of Washington County, and the
result shows that whilo tho white popu?
lation has increased in tho usual ratio,
tho negroes have diminished in number
nearly ten per cent, per annum in the
past four years.

"THE MOUNTAIN LABORED, " ETC.
After a considornblo amount of wind and
a clash or two of thunder, the clonds
opened and u few drops of rain fell, yes?

in this vicinity are completely burnt up,
while serious fears sre entertained of tho

along that route, yesterday. A young
flood would be acceptable here.
EXTERMINATION.-Forney is shocked
nt a speaker who said, at the late meet?
ing in Memphis, that "extermination is
the doom of the negro." But tho remark
is true. Extermination is tho negro's
doom, extermination, not by tho hand of
violence, but by tho competition, in la?
bor, between intelligence ond ignorance,
j economy and wastefulness, industry and
indolence. Yes, extermination is tho
negro's fate, and he can sadly shake his
kinky looks at radicalism, and say "thou
MAT OF THE CITY.-We have received
from A. Y. Lee, Esq., a copy of his
"Ward Map of the City of Columbia,"
which, after a careful examination, wo
pronounce as near correct as it is possi?
ble) to have anything of tho sort, in these
variable times-that ie, when there is
such a transfer of property continually
?oing on. This map is neatly put np on
rollers, and, aside from its usefulness,
will provo an ornament to au office, pas?
sage or dining-room. Mr. Leo will com?
mence the delivery of copies to sub?
scribers this morning.
A card ispnblisbed in another column,
from Miss M. A. Bnie, who is genrnuy
known ns the Confederate soldiers' friend,
in which she announces the re-opening
of her school, iu Edgefield. Shu has
bad many difficulties to contend with,
but has at last succeeded in establishing
her institution on a firm basis. Tho
children of deceased Cou federate soldiers
are taught free of charge; while board
can bo obtained in families residing near
the school at about S12 a month. She
is entitled to, and will doubtless receive,
au extensive patronage.
Tho planters of tho State: will be
pleased to soo that our enterprising fel?
low-citizens, Messrs. Blakely it Gibbes,
are prepared to engage several thousand
bales of cotton, at fair rates. Wo learn
that they aro securing crops at twenty tc
twenty-five cents per pound, according
to timo of delivery. When the rush oi
cotton comes in-say in November and
Decembor-tho market will, no doubt,
decline considerably; and it would bo r
sore thing now to securo a good paying

withstanding our section is suffering
with a drought, accounts from most o
