Au UuCftU' System.
The effort, which the State authorities
seem to be persistently making; to or?ate
the impression that disorder runs riot in
thisBtato is-to put it mildly-rory un?
fair and most injudicious. Take, first,
tho case of Edgefield. Was there any
occasion wnatetejefor Ib?jailitarjjpove-.
menta and grand hub-bub. modo there?
It ia truo that some Of tho people of
Edgefield aro ..much given to shooting at
oaoh Other at short distances, but we
learn that . not one of the shooting
serapes there have sprung from political
difficulties. But Mr. Eichelberger gets
into trouble, and filled with imaginary
fears, his potent influence carries arms
and guards to Edgefield. Take the oaso
of Abbeville and Anderson. Imaginary
troubles lead to the military movements
of the constabulary at those points. A
colored church ia burnt in Chester, and
forthwith tho whites are saddled with
the act. And ia many parts of the State,
outrages are reported, and if, in some
oases, there is unfortunately some founda?
tion for the statement of wrong-doing,
tile details are grossly exaggerated, and
the responsibility attached to a whole
community. Bead the Charleston Re
publican newspaper, and in almost every
issue, large capitals and sensational head?
ings precede the garbled and high-flown
stories of Democratic outrages upon
1 mild, Iamb-like 1 'Republicans. "
And what is the object of this system
of deliberate misrepresentation? It is
tor party purposes. It is to keep up the
passions and prejudices of the duped
freedmen in the interior. It is that
"the birds of prey" at the sea-side, at
the capital and elsewhere in the State,
may not lose their hold upon the suffer?
ing body of the State. An admirable
mode is this of securing the prosperity
of the State, which "progressive Repub?
licanism" professes to aim atl A fino
way is this to attract capital and immi?
grants which "progressive Republican?
ism" claims to have at heart!
But we are pleased to say that even at
the North and with radicals, this game is
becoming transparent. The cry of
"wolf " no longer'deceives. The whites
of South Carolina continuo provokiugly
quiet. And oven in journals, violently
radical, we are seeing every day the ac?
knowledgment that all is quiet in South
Carolina, and law-abiding, nay, almost
"loil." See, say they, how fiery South
Carolina has cooled down and turned
her gleaming sword into a polished
plowshare. "First in war," see, say
they, how now she is "first in peace."
And even Horace Greeley is almost
ready to take us up in his paternal arms
-albeit, he may be damning us the
while with "faint praise."
Let us take heart, then, for it docs
seem that the radical role is well-nigh ex?
hausted. In tbe meantime, let us look
out for now art? and new devices.
EX-PRESIDENT JEFFERSON* DAVIS.-The
millions of Southern hearts whose sym?
pathies follow Jefferson Davis wherever
he may go, will be pleased to learn that
his health has been much improved.
The consideration and respect with
which he hos been received in Europe
is not the less a tribute to the cause he
represented tbau to the man himself,
and is gratifying to his friends in Ameri?
ca. We cannot close this subject with?
out paying a passing tribute to tho bear?
ing of Mr. Davis-in imprisonment, in
sufferings and exile. "Of firm and noble
soul," he has borne himself, since tho
surrender, erect-giving the world assur?
ance of a XIAN. Bowing his haugh ty
hoad to none but his God, he will live
and will die-a soul unconquered.

THE NiaoEn QUESTION IN NEW YORK.
The nigger question on tho fifteenth

- Manufacture? mt the South.
??o snbjeot at the South can now be
wellJnTestoi withY importance tha%
tha?* of industrial ^ferelopment in tl&
way of manufactures. Wo earnestly
hopo that our capitalists or monied mein
wi? not,' thia fall, fail to turn their atten?
tion to the advantages of this form of
investment. It has been'dearly demon?
strated-even with mathematical accura?
cy- timt the South possesses advantages
oyer the North in. almost every form of
manufactures. And this may bo depend?
ed upon, that ?hles? our domestic capital
shall seek this channel, foreign capital
We aro told that in our State there are
many men who have money, and are
looking around for profitable investment.
Let us suggest to snob-put your money
in factories and manufactories, nnd it
will bo well for them and well for tho
country. A diversity of pursuits is tho
life-blood of prosperity-it brings into
play all the onergies of mind and body,
and leads to tho development of a peo?
ple's entiro resources.
As to tho advantages wo enjoy hero at
tho South, wo refer to the following ex?
tract from Col. Palmer's paper, submit?
ted to the late Agricultural Convention :
1. An abundance of ur -cupied water
power in cvory Southern otate.
2. A mild l?mate. Fire, for boating
purposes, is only necessary for from ono
to threo months in the year. Resinous
heart-pino wood can be procured at very
low rates. We pay for such wood de?
livered within ono mile of our factory,
only ono dollar per oord, and our total
expenso for fuel for, say two and one
half months in the year, is but one
tenth of one cent per pound, whoo
charged to the manufactures of those
months, while in the North it is about
one cent per pound on tho manufactures
of at least five months in the year.
3. Wages are, and must continue to
be, comparatively low. The mildnoss of
tho oUmate, tho abundance of lumber,
and tho cheapness of land, enables ma?
nufacturers to provide their operatives
with inexpensive but comfortable houses
and largo garden plats. Tho country
being an agricultural one, wo must soon
be able to produce our provisions, while
tho manufacturing districts of the North
must always depend upon tho distant
West, and, to some extent, upon the
South for theirs.,
4. Operatives. Northern men, acting
as superintendants of Southern mills,
admit tho enperiority of our factory
hands, who aro remarkably frugal nnd
industrious, and who aro easily con?
5. Freights aro lower on yarns and
cloths than on lint cotton. There has
been a timo, within tho lost three years,
wheu a bale of cotton of 450 pounds,
worth, say, ninety dollars, paid a freight,
from Charleston to New York or Phila?
delphia, of $2.50 per bale, which would
bo 2.77 per cent, on value; whilo that
ootton, modo into n balo of 400 pounds
of No. 20 yarn, worth, say S13G, paid
only sixty conts por balo, of 44-100 por
ecut. on value-a difference in favor of
yarns of two-third percent. The South?
ern manufacturer saves the freight on
bagging, rope und other waste. This
waste eau bu manufactured into paper at
tho South moro cheaply than at tho
North, nnd is, consequently, moro valua?
ble here than there. Reclamation on
falso packed or damaged cotton is easy
and direct, and we eave the burdensome
Northern charges for storage, brokerage,
On tho subject of the practicability of
Southern men engaging in cotton facto?
ries, Col. Palmor says:
It seems to mo entirely practicable for
tho planters of tho cotton-growing dis?
tricts, all over tho South, to combino to?
gether, in joint stock associations, and
eroct cottou mills of sufficient capacity
to spin up their crops. No doubt, if this
suggestion were noted upon at once, and
all our cotton mado into yarn, and
thrown upon the Northern market, the
supply would exoeed tho domnnd, and
loss, ?t first, would ensue. My proposi?
tion is to ship direct to tho continent of
Europe, as well as to the North, lt
would tnko us but little time to drive
other yarns from the market. Tho pro?
cess of approaching tho spinning of our
entiro crop wonld be gradual, nnd would
keep pace with the gradual wit hun wai
of our competitors.
Tho arguments in favor of spinning
will apply with equal force in favor of
weaving. I have, however, confined my
suggestions and calculations to spinning,
because it is more simple, and requires
less capital; nnd is, thereforo, moro like?
ly to bc gonorally adopted ut an early

A Winning Plank.
Our discussion of the Land Commis?
sion would be incompleto did we not
close by suggesting a remedy ngninst
the baneful and hostile i nfl neu ce it
is intended to exert. We have a reme?
dy, and wo intend to propose it. But
we know how it will surprise many of
our readers, if not tho entire State. Let
the progrossivo, liberal, anti-radioal,
black and white party that is growing in
South Carolina, and is destined by 1874,
if not beforo, to control its government,
inscribe at onoe upon its banner, "Land
for the landless, homes for tho homeless
It is with freo laborers that wo aro
dealing. They naturally desire the com?
fort and independence of homes of their
own. All the efficient laborers among
them will certainly succeed, in this
country, after a little, in reaching the
object of their desires. Let the new
party, whioh as yet has not a distinctive
name, pledge itself, therefore, most
solemnly, by public resolution, to assist
thom in this regard, and so secure their
votes. It is certain that we eau do more
for them in ono year than the Hon. C.
P. Leslie and tho vilo iuccdiaries Hogo
and Scott can do in ten.
Hogo's speed i ban opened tho cam?
paign. We ourselves can seo no sonso
in giving the radicals thc ear of the suf?
fragans for eight months, without a re?
ply. Let the State proas publish our
suggestion, and enlarge upon it, if it
approve of it, by showing that tho libe?
rals have land to rent, moleB to hire,
plantation implements to lend, credit to
use for the advancement of supplies-in
short tho power to do, what carpet-bag?
gers can only promise, and that thoy
will do what they have tho power to do,
if by their votes the blacks will help
overthrow tho corruption and extrava?
gance, which unchecked, will prey still
moro remorselessly upon our substance.
Neither need there be the slightest
fear that tho abovo recommended course
will deprive the State of farm laborers.
It will, on the contrary, it appears to us,
(and wo havo given the matter much pa?
tient thought,) render our present labor?
ers cheerful, efficient and available for a
longer per. 1 of time than they now
promiso to be. It will put intelligence
on top, and ignorance at the bottom.
And, as heretofore, capital aud enter?
prise will find instruments to executo
Look at this, gentlemen, and do not
roject it, simply because it surprises you.

A SOUTHERN COTTON Mxnxi.-A corres?
pondent of tho Memphis Appeal, writing
from Stonewall, Miss., describes a cot?
ton mill in operation at the latter place.
Uo gives the annexed facts:
lu tho pine barrens, 100 miles abovo
Mobile and twenty below Meridian, on
tho Mobilo and Ohio road, is tho cotton
manufacturers' village of Stonewall. The
structures aro of brick, tho main build?
ing 180 feet long, 55 wide, with two
wings, each 50 feet square. Two costly
engines, each of fifty-horse power, drive
the machinery of this model establish?
ment. There is power enough for five
times tho number of looms and spindles
now in operation, and since the number
of superintendents and of costly em?
ployees and managers would require no
augmentation, tho proprietors will at
once double thc length of th . main
building and fill it with machinery. With
this view the capital stock of the compa?
ny, when incorporated, will be increased,
and the quantity of goods manufactured
will bo doubled when thc additional capi?
tal invested will not be moro than one
fourth the original outlay.
At present there are only 52 looms aud
2,01C spindles in operation, consuming
daily about three bolos of cotton. Seven?
ty-three women and girls aro employed
about tho establishment, whose white
cottages, furnished freo of rent charge,
dot tho neighboring hill-sides. There is
not a negro, save tho proprietors' house
sci vants, at Stonewall; nearly every ope?
rativo is tho widow or daughter of fami?
lies impoverished by tho war.
The whole monthly cost of the mill is
81,-luO, including fuel, bil, salaries of su?
perintendents and laborers. And yet the
manager of tho mill informed mo that
ho was paying higher wages than any
other manufacturer in the South. When
I sought information as to tho profitable?
ness of the establishment, I was told to
make my own calculations. Wo havo
cotton enough of the best quality, which
cost us less than twenty cents, to last till
December. If wo wero not doing well,
we would havo sold 300 bales at a profit
of ten cents per pound. The clear pro?
uts of tho establishment aro not less
thar from 875 to $100 per day.
One ox-planter has 850,000, another
825,000 and threo others 85,000 each in?
vested in this establishment When the
Legislature meets, the Stonewall Mills
will bo incorporated and tho capital
stock increased. There is power enough
to drive five times the number of looms
aud spindles now running, and tho samo
number of superintendents and overseers
can superviso tho additional machinery
and increased number of hands. Another
wing will therefore bo added to the build?
ing. F?70 times as many looms and

OHIO.-Tho San Francisco Bulletin

out of his mining speculations.
?.vevcly Inlurcrt by Lion?.
?L ' Lucas, whose wonderful escape
fro? the furynrf-rkmsia-the Paris Hip?
podrome was recently announced, was
alive at last nccouu ts.
HU whole body is covered with wounds,
among which thirty-three bear tho marks
of lions' and lionesses' teeth, who at?
tacked him in the cage, whore he had
shat himself up with them. Had M.
Lucas not been in perfect health, and in
the enjoyment of a sound constitution at
the time of the accident, his arm must
have beet? amputated. Lucas states that
ha had not been -two seconds in the cage
before he perceived his danger. Ho had
omitted to take with him his usual weap?
ons, and had only a slight riding whip
in his hand. For an instant he lost sight
of the lioness, who, no longer perceiving
his eyes fixed on hers, seized him by the
lower jaw and bj the back of his bond,
crunching tho occipital bone, and then
seizing him by the arm, in order to drag
him between her paws aud devour him
at her leisure. Her sire, however, de?
sirous of sharing the spoil, attempted to
force him from beneath her paws, and
caught him by the thigh, inflicting a
fearful wound, and literally gnawiug
through tho main artery. It was at this
awful moment that Jose Mendez, nn at?
tached servant of Lucas, dashed into
the cage with a revolver, with the butt
end of -vbich he dealt a heavy blow at
the lioness' head, which compelled her
to give up her prey. Mendez, with mar?
velous strength, mado a spring at the
lion and threw him into the back df tho
cage; then, levelling tho weapon at the
auimnls with his right arm, pushed the
blooding man ont of their reach by his
feet. It was only then that the other at?
tendants came to the rescue, aud with nn
iron bar wrenched open the bars of the
cage, enabling Mendez to effect his es?
cape backward, dragging Lucas with
him, but never lowering his right arm,
with which he grasped the revolver.
The heroic conduct of Mendez deserves
record, and may well rank with deeds of
daring which have won stars and crosses
on fields of battle. The poor fellow
speaks of his noble eonduct as a matter
of course, and in his Franco-Spanish
?tcUois says he would have allowed the
yeasts to devour him rather than have
let them kill his master. Tho lions ex?
hibited by Lucas wore purchased by him
from a Spanish grandee, tho Duke of
Kivus, who has fifty of these animals in
his possession for training purposes.
Lucas ha? said that the lioness which hud I
so nearly devoured him had eaten pnrt I
of a lion-tamer at Rochefort, who is,
therefore, maimed for life. She is twelve
years old. Her cubs are now useless, as,
having smelt and tasted human blood, it
will bo impossible to tame them for future
exhibitions. As the young animals have
never smelt blood thoy are fumable, but
A MEDIUM EXPOSED.-Professor J. W.
Caldwell and Laura V. Ellis, the child
medium, a littlo girl of twelve, have
been exhibiting in Western Massachu?
setts a series of "wonderful physical
manifestations," after the stile of the
Davenport Brothers. Some of the tricks
wore very clever. The medium was
securely fastened with strips of cotton
cloth to a scat in a small cabinet. While
thus tied, numerous feats were perform?
ed, such as tying and uutying a strip of
cloth around her neck or waist; taking a
ring and placiug it on any of her fingers,
or in her mouth or ear. A bell placed
in the medium's lap was rung; a drum
played upon with a drumstick, and then
with fingers, and tho sides of the cabinet
were vigorously pounded with a stick.
A voico quito like tho medium's only a
trifle heavier, was heard in the cabinet
when tho door was closed,which profess?
ed to belong to the spirit of ono
"Blake," who, when on tho earth, was
a soldier, and "got shooted" at the first
battle of Bull Bun. In Qreat Barring?
ton, however, according to tho Berk?
shire Courier, tho committee, in examin?
ing the child's fastening, rubbed some
lamp-black upon her fingers, and when
the strip was next manipulated by the
supposed spirit blackened finger-marks,
were distinctly visible. Ono of the com?
mittee also heard tho child say in a low
tone to hor father, when an experiment
with a ring failed, "Father, I couldn't
muke it stay in my ear; it dropped out."
The explanation of the tricks performed
by Ellis is said to be very simple, tho
whole secret lying in slipping the arm a
little way into the bandages, instead of
withdrawing tho hands from them, as
would at first bo supposed necessary,
and any slender boy or girl can easily
THE LITERARY OUTLAW.-Where are
Mrs. Harriet Beecher Stowe's friends?
By "Unelo Tom's Cabin" she earned the
hostility of tho South, and now in equal
proportion is receiving tho disapproba?
tion of the men and women of the North
-the men openly professing their dis?
gust nt tho nasty story she has concocted
at so much a pago; and tho women-so
far as they speak in public-driving her
out of their suffrage convention by rea?
son of her recommending that man be
tho head of the woman as Christ is the
head of tho Church. Where, then, is
Mrs. Stowe to go? Back to hor Florida
home? No; for that, bought by some
juggle for a mere song at a tax sale, has
reverted, with a purer administration of
justice, to its rightful owners. To Eng?
land? Sho would bo scouted as ouo mak?
ing merchandise of fomily secrets. There
but remains for her, then, some homo in
that North where her name was once tho
synonyme of a glowing defenco of negro
weakness, but must henceforth bo liuked
with tho perpetration of as heiuous a
piece of bawdy as tho literature of licen?
tiousness in this country presents.

Prince Nopolcon'? Position.
Friiico NapoleoD Bonaparte, cousin to
the Ern poror Napoleon, and, like him, a
"nephew of Ins t??ele/' Napoleon I
continues his parliamentary agitation
against tho policy ot the Pans Cabinet
as Avon as the tendency of tho chief mea
sureafltoposed by the French Minister
in a very decided manner. The Prince
is not satisfied with the present head of
the dynasty, and although he himself
bas been nominated the second member
of the regency in behalf of the Prince
Imperial, should his Majesty die before
bis son attains his majority, it is .quite
ovident that he wishes to push forward
considerably in the path of radical pro?
gress prior to that event if possible.
His conduct in this direction has been
so marked of late that he is now classed
as an "irreconcilable" in politics, the
Minister of the Interior going so far, in?
deed, in his very presence, ns to charac?
terize his Senatorial course as "scandal?
ous." It is difficult to understand why
this should be. The empire as at pre?
sent constituted ought to be wide
enough, certainly, for one family. It
appears, however, as if it were other?
wise. Priuco Nupoleon, who bears a re?
markable nnd most striking personal
resemblance to Napoleon the Great, may
have iuherited with it that illimitnbility
of "idea" which raised up new thrones
and induced many conquests previous to
Waterloo. Toned down to practical
radicalism, ho may perhaps call this
French reform to bo put io practice by a
plebiscite instead of nt the point of the
bayonet. It has been said that his ad?
vice of the adoption of such au experi?
ment coutibuted largely to the Italio
A. us tri ?in war, the actual result of which,
although it banished thc Austrians from
Lombardy aud created n united Italy,
brought Savoy and Nico under the
sceptre of Bonaparte. His Imperial
Highness is consequently a successful
experimentist, and it may be that Spain
oilers just now au inviting field for the
exercise of his genius. He is very
shrewd and very compchensive. He
opposed the Mexican expedition; he may
go for Spain-perhaps go to Spain in the
event of a suitable king not being found
soon. He is radical enough for Spanish
revolution. He goes for the peoples,
and, of course, for Cuban indepeuce.

with surprise from sundry radical ex?
changes that "the Democratic party is

have a dim recollection of having heard

tho perpetrators believe it. Perhaps
they do; but if they do, their heads must
