RAILBOATJ MEKTJNU.-A meo ting of the
citizens of this place was called at the
Court House, on Saturday evening last,
for the purpose of considering a propo?
sition from th? corporators of the South
Carolina Central Railroad, which de?
manded immediate action.
The Central Railroad went into legal
existence on the 18th instant. The .fol?
lowing is the proposition made to tho
people of Lancaster hythe corporators:
1. If tho owners of the Camden
Branoh will, by vote, agree to unito with
us, and take stock in our company in ex?
change for their stock, on equal terms,
then we will lift their road for thirteen
miles and turn it round to Sumter.
2. We will run from Camdon to Lan?
caster if the people of Lancaster will
give tho right of way free, and subscribe
$100,000 to the sto"k of the company,
to be paid in land along the route of
the line at its assessed value or in cash.
The following resolution, submitted by
Wm. A. Moore, Esq., was unanimously
Resolved, That this meeting unani?
mously accepts and express unhesitating?
ly the opinion that the people of Lan?
caster will unreservedly accept ?be pro?
positions submitted by the corporators
of the Central Railroad, communicated
in the letter addressed by the Hon. R. J.
Donaldson, Senator from Chesterfield,
to our own Senator, Hon. R. M. Sims.
A committee was appointed to nomi?
nate delegates to attend the meeting of
the corporators in Sumter, on the 18th
instant. The eommittee named tho fol?
lowing gentlemen: Wm. A. Moore, N.
G. B. Ghafee; alternates-J. B. Erwin
and D. J. Carter.-Lancaster Ledger.
THE LAW OP DIVORCE.-The Greenville
Judge Orr has rendered an adverse de?
cision in the oase of John H. Walker vs.
Mary J. Walker, petition for divorce.
The case has been held under considera?
tion since last court, and tho legal pro?
fession will be indebted to the Judge for
the very learned and able opinion in the
case. We have examined this opinion;
it will form a land-mark in future cases.
The Judge distinctly indicates that the
Court of Equity of this State always had
the power to exeroise jurisdiction in di?
vorce cases. We have long been of the
opinion, notwithstanding the uniform
disclaimers of the Judges, and have al?
ways believed that a Court of Equity
could and ought to have granted di?
vorces where there existed the scriptnral
justification. It is manifest that Judge
Orr would restrict the granting of di?
vorces to cases of the most aggravated
character, and he would not suit Chicago
or the State of Connecticut.
WHAT OHIO THINKS OF THE FIFTEENTH
AMENDMENT.-The defeat of the pending
fifteenth amendment will leave tho ques?
tion of negro and Chinese suffrage to be
dealt with by the States. Will it be de?
feated? Upon this subject tho Cincin?
nati Enquirer says: "We shall be told
that it will make no kind of difference
whether Ohio ratifie i the amendment or
not, it will be a fixed fact, and Ohio
must have negro suffrage whether she
wishes it or not. That kind of an argu?
ment is an insult to tho independent
voters of Ohio. States may ratify it in
any manner and form as Indiana has
done, or as Virginia, Mississippi and
Texas are forced to do. In the event of
it j not being ratified by three-fourths of
the States in a constitutional manner, the
whole sehemo will fail. The people of
Ohio should, therefore, vote as if the
whole question depended upon the deci?
sion in this State. In every view of the
case it is an important issue in this oan
PEACH ORCHARD FORTY-FIVE MIT.ES
Lona.-George F. Akers, of Nashville,
who is at present on a visit to Virginia,
writes to a friend in Nashville from Pe?
tersburg that "the breast-works in front
of Petersburg, thrown up by the Con?
federates during the late war, extending
to the left towards Richmond about
twenty miles, and to the right about
twenty-five miles, for the defence of the
city, nave grown up in a continuous line
of peach trees of every variety, yielding
an abundant erop the present year. This
is the only legacy left by our poor fellows
who were on the advance line within 100
yards of the enemy. Having eaten the
fruit while on picket duty, they cast the
seed aside and now they appear in one
continuous line of forty-five miles in
beautiful trees, yielding the greatest
variety of the finest fruit.
On Saturday last, two n e men were
killed by a negro, in Lauderdale County.
Tho white men wero in tho woods hew
ing logs for a building, nnd had felled n
tree across a neighborhood road, and
until cut away, it was necessary for per?
sons passing to ride around it, and seve?
ral had dono so. When tho negro in
question came along, being drunk, in?
stead of going round, ho rode over the
log on which tho white men wero at work.
Upon this a quarrel arose, and in the
midst of it, tho negro drew a pistol, and
shot them, striking one in tho bend, kill?
ing him instantly, and wounding tho
other fatally. Our informant says tho
negro had not boen caught, but that
hundreds wore in pursuit of him.

AFTER an extensiv? usc of this important

A C urd-Southern Life insurance Com?
pany, Atlanta Department.
To the People of South Carolina :
Tho abovo Company was organized in 18CC,
in consequenco of tho wholesale forfeiture of
Southern policies by Northern companies. Tho
unparalleled success of tho enterprise has
forced several of theso companies to restore
their Southern policies, from thc fact that they
could not operate in our midst without the ap?
pearance of honesty.
Wo keep all our money at home to build up
our impoverished country-every dollar of
premium being safely invested in thc State
from which it is derived. The institution is
purely Southern, and hence should appeal
with great force to the patriotism and sympa?
thy of every Southern heart.
'Tis not our purpose to make war on other
companies, hut to exhibit the special advan?
tages offered by this purely Southern Compa?
ny-founded on patriotism and solid wealth.
Its ratio of assets to liabilities-tho true test
of a company's strength, is second to none on
this continent-being nearly 300 to KO.
Whenever and wherever wo have presented
the claims of this Company, it has not only
enlisted thc sympathies of our people, but has
also eecured their hearty co-operation. We
have secured 500 policios in Sozth Carolina
since the 10th of Februarv. Wo number
among our Directors Gen. Wade Hampton and
Col. Wm. Johnston, gcutlemen well known to
every citizen of South Carolina. Wo appeal
personally to the people of South Carolina to
assist in pnshiug forward this deservedly
popular Southern institution.
