Tbc Development of South Carolin?.
We wrote, not long since, of the deve?
lopment of Columbia. We riae now to
n broader thorne, and to oue in which we
aro not less interested-the development
of the resources of this State. In tho
first place, it is undeniable that this
State hos many natural advantages.
Providence has given us the blessings of
the soil, the blessings of health, the
blessings of climate. Standing between
tho cold of tho North and the heat of tho
extreme South, we escapo the disadvan?
tages of both, and enjoy the golden
moan. The low country with its const,
its rioe and long cotton; the middle
country with its varied products; the up?
country with its grain and other pro
ducts, have each their special attractions.
The question now might well nrise, how
are tho resources of tbe State tu be fully
doveloped? Wo refer now to tho mate?
rial im pro vernen t of South Carolina. To
state first general principles, it may bo
laid down as a role, that no State can be
folly developed, unless by diversified in?
dustry, all the energies and all tho capa?
bilities of the people are thoroughly
evoked. To draw these forth, no one
industrial parsnit will suffice-hence the
proposition that is generally accepted,
that'agriculture, manufactures and com?
merce or trade, are the three great inte?
rests that should alike be sustained. Ii.
is 'their harmonious combination that
will bring a full and well-rounded pros?
perity. We notice that no less a mau
than Father Hyacinthe-in a speech at
the Pea oe Congress-has thrown out
some ideas on this very point. He said :
"I have now a word to say of interest.
Earthly interests are great things. They
uro full of ideas and of virtues; and, after
nil, since Ood has placed ns on earth-it
is not for the purpose of dreaming of
Heaven either, but for the purpose of
deserving it-it is by the oonquest of tho
earth that man marches to the conquest
of Heaven. The sacred Book tells us
that God in His wisdom has made man
to establish this world in justice and
truth. These are words which we can?
not too well meditate or apply. Gentle?
men and ladies, tho justice of man to the
earth, is agriculture, industry and com?
merce. Agriculture holds the first place.
This earth, wrappod in n lethargic slum?
ber, is wakened by the vigorous arm of
the laborer; she drinks tho sweat of the
man; she is intoxicated with that bitter
and holy liquor, and taking n disgust for
her native barbarism, she bends herself
active and joyous to the culturo which
transforms aud fertilizes her. Behold
tho earth, established in j us tico and
truth, becomo tho nurse of multitudes,
oponiug her large breasts to tho mon of
all nations, aud pouring upon them in
great Hoods that physical lifo without
which the moral life itself would speedily
bo drained. The peasant 1ms purchased
these riches, which, with a just pride, ho
hands over to tho workman of our manu?
factories, saying to him, 'Brother, finish
my work and commence thine; pursue
the great labor prescribed to humanity
by God;' and tho industrial workman
takes the fntit of agriculture. Ho calls
from every whore tho concealed or rebel?
lious forces of nature. He conquers that
which is rebellious, ho elicits that which
is concealed, und ho creates in his turu
those other marvels which are tbe last
work of man and of matter in the sphere
of the useful, ns the arts aro their last
work in tho sphere of the beautiful. And
when tho peasant aud the mechanic
have done their work, then commerce
opens her broad wings, spreads her sails
to the breeze, her engines boil und roar,
her vessels furrow tho setts, her chariots
of fire traverso the earth; the arteries of
tho peoples open themselves on every
hand, in order that tho blood of the
same civilization, the seat of the samo
moral ideas and tho same material pro?
ducts, may flow throughout all humuui
So much, now, for general principles.
lu the light of these, let us consider how
we shall proceed to develop South Caro?
lina. Our object is not so much to enter
into details as to suggest food for
thought. In the first plaoe, as the Priest
has said in the extract we have given,
"Agriculture holds the first place."
Many of our readers have, no doubt, rend
the classic story of Antioas. It is said
that SO long as this character touched
his mother earth, ho gathered now
strength. Tho fabio may well illustrate
the power that comes from the soil. In
South Carolina tho agricultural interests
form tho basis of all other interests.
Our pcoplo must seo to it that this de?
partment receives tho attention it de?
serves. Lot them touch tho soil willi
scientific skill, with unflagging zeal,
with all tho modern appliance , and, An
ttois-liko, they will derive strength.from
tho contact. But thora is another inter?
est. Wo will assume that agriculture
has produced its fruit. Tins fruit, tin
manufacturer or "tho industrial work
man" takes up, and thence open new
sou revs of profit, uso and wealth. Ht
creates those marvels which are "lin
work of man and of matter iu the sphort
of the useful." But this is not all. Wt
will suppose that tho farmer and the me
chame have done their work. The great
interests of trade next follow in l?gica!
ordar^^'iThen^ com^|Ho. opens her
broad ?rings, |pread?, $?er kaili; tot the
breeze, hor engines boil and roar, her
vossola furrow tho sean, her chariots of
fire traverso tha? earth." These are, iu
doed. tho tl reo great interests Tn South
Carolina. Let Charleston look to com?
merce and direct trude with Europe. Lot
all tho State, from tho seaboard to the
mountains, from tho Pedue to tho Sa?
vannah, look to agriculture and manu?
factures, and wo shall be filling the ob?
vious programme bofore us. Wheu we
suggest that it is incumbent upon UH to
develop all our interests of farming,
mining, manufacturing and trading, we
havo suggested tho liuo of success to the
State. Wo shall continue, in tho future,
ns heretofore, now and thou, hero and
there, to indicate the special ways and
means of accomplishing this great work
of a throc-fold development.
Tho Now York Tribune, commcntiug
ou tho recently published statistics of
tho Confederate army, says:
"We repent the expression of our firm
conviction th.it the Confederacy never
put 100,000 men iu liue of battle at any
moment, nod hud not 50,000 meu iu its
encampments nrouud Manassas Junc?
tion, when McClellan stood inactivo and
irresoluto for months beforo those en?
campments, nt tho head of 150,000 to
200,000 of the best men that ever shoul?
dered arms. Wo aro further confident
that he had 10,000 more men in hand,
aud, but for indiscriminate, furloughs,
would have bad 25,000 more than Lee,
wheu tho latter commenced his move?
ment on our right flank, which caused
.Little Mack'-after standing tamely by
. nd seeing ono-third of bis army smashed
by two-thirds of Lee's-to destroy or
abandon millions' worth of provisions
and munitions, and commence a precipi?
tate 'flank movement' to the James."
No doubt, observes tho Macon Tcle
graph, tho leading Northern papers will
soon fiud occasion, in their quarrels, to
push inquiries into all tho conditions of
relativo strength aud equipment between
the f orces of Gen. Grant and Lee iu thc
memorable campaign which terminated
at Appomattox. When those aro known
to the people, thero will bo not one drop
of glory left in that campaigning, except
for those who stood on tho defence.
An exchango well says, "Policy look;^
to tho middle-wisdom, to tbe end."
Such was tho wisc aphorism of Sir Rich?
ard Raker, iu ouc of tho finest passaget
of his quiiiut old ' 'Chronicle of the Kingi
of England." We aro reminded of il
when we reflect on tho wariuess of North
eru manufacturing capital in Reeking iu
vestment in tho South. Thc policy o
political bigots and over cautious capital
ists combines with iuuoceut ignorance ti
prevent the udveuturo of Northern Bkil
aud Northern dollars iuto tho richest
hurvost of Southern manufactures cvci
bef?te odored to the enterprise of mau
Wisdom will, oro long, overleap thc bar
riers, and basten to tho end.
A SIGNIFICANT FACT.-That thc natura
iudoleuco of the Southern negro is a foi
midablc bar to bis elevation aud pro
gross, ovou tinder his improved condi
tiou, is illustrated every day. A fact de
serving of notioois incidentally mention
ed by tho New Orleans limes, (Rcpubli
can,) of tho 17th instant, which speak
of tho arrival of a large number of mon
upwards of 100, from Illinois, to worl
on tho sugar plantations of Messrs
Walker & Bronson, Bronson & Thomp
son, J. B. Lyon Sc Co., and Gravenburg
on tho Bayou Tocho. They were brough
from Chicago to Now Orleans for $18.5?
each, by contract with the Illinois Cen
tral Railroad. They are hired especial!;
to tako off the sugar crop. Think o
sonding for white laborers several huu
dred miles, paying 818.50 per head, nm
workiug them at a profit iu cotupetitic;

The probable effect of emancipation
in producing the ultimate extinction of
the black race in Am?rica i? foreshadowed
in an elaborate medical report recently
presented to the Stat o Medical Society
of Kectneky in relation to the relative
fecundity of women of different uationa
and conditions. In support of tho as?
sertion that labor tends to increase fe?
cundity, and indolence aud luxury tho
reverse, many historical illustrations wore
adduced; muong which were numerous
statistics from various parts of the South?
ern States, showing that ina gi veli pop?
ulation, where threu children were born
during slavery, one, or less than one, is
born now, and that nt least fifty percent, j
of the children of the freed people die !
during the first year of infancy. It is :
added that thc immorality of the eman-1
cipated slaves has even more to do with
their increased sterility than othor causes. 1

PIEDMONT AND ARLINGTON LIKE INSU?
RANCE COMPANY.-The Baltimore Under?
writer, for October, speaks ns follows of
this ulliauce :
"Tho two popular aud progressive Vir?
ginia life companies, tho Piedmont aud
Arlington, have joined bauds aud formed
an ulliauce which will bo productive of
advantage to tho iutcrosts of all con?
cerned. Tho amalgamation is effected
ou terms of equal financial strength, tho
surplus of the Piedmont being 8276,337,
and that of tho Arlington, 8270,270.
Tho capital stock of each is $100.000.
The combined assets amount to $1,500,
000, whilst the number of policies issued
in the first two j-ears of organization is
8,000. The union thus brought about,
ns will bo seen by this showing, gives
immediate weight tu thc new company,
and confers upon it at once equal rank
with many of tho old compuuies in
amount of assets and number of risks.
It starts afresh with a broader base und
a surer average, whilst the burden of
taxes aud running expenses is very ma?
terially lightened, aud tho interests of
tho policy holders proportionately ad?
vanced. No right of tho old ]>olicy
holders will bo effected ; they will cou
tiuuo to pay tho same rate as beforo ; to
hold the same policies ; to have the samo
privileges, with increased benefits. In
the arrangement of the official staff, as
might be presumed, Major Carrington
beoomes tho President of the Union. Ha
has earned the position by his unques?
tioned ability aud his unremitting devo?
tion to duty. Under his guiding baud
the future prospects of the company is
secure against all contingence."

PHYSICIANS USE THEM IN THEIR PRAC?
TICE.-It is almost universally the case
that physicians condemn what are gene
rallyk uowu as "Patent Mediciues." Al
though Du. Terr's LIVER PILL IS NOT A
j PATENT MEDICINE, yet its composition
(the result of years of study) is known
[ only to himself, and so palpable are their
j valuable curative properties, that very
1 many of the first physicians iu the South
and West have adopted them in their
' practice, and recommend them to their
I patients. 023G
Head tho following testimonial:
! Messrs. Ztjilin d> Co.-GENTLEMEN: I
i have used SIMMONS' LIVER REGULATOR,
not only once, but often, and can con
I fidently assert it has done me more good
\ than nuy other mcdiciuc I ever used. I
think it is the greatest medicine for dis
I cased liver, made in the world. Many of
j my ueigkbors have used it, and all will
I say as much, if not more, than I do, for
its virtues. I shall never be without it.
O 23:3 JOHN J. ALLEN, Bibb Co.
j GOOD ADVICE.-Let our possessions be
j what they may-marble palaces, brood
lauds, magnificent plate, or caskets of
"precious stones"-they all sink in the
j balance against Heaven's great boon
I HEALTH, and they cannot be enjoyed
without it. And yet how little is it va?
lued, aud how carelessly preserved. The
' laws of nature cannot be violated with
i impunity. Night revelry, luxurious Hv
I iug, irregularity of meals, and a disor
: dered appetite, will gradually destroy the
I power aud activity of the stomach. How
mauy ladies and gentlemen eat and drink
disease at late suppers, and arise in the
morning with headache, los.-, of appetite,
feeling languid and unrefreshed. There
eau bu no medical remedy that will turn
lead into food, or poisoned drinks into
nutriment, but medical science eau assig?
nat ure, supply exhausted fluids, and to a
great extent, correct the effeots of dis?
ease. In all cases such as the above, we
recommend PLANTATION BITTERS. Yoe
I will lind them just the thing-at the same
j time, a most delicious tonic and appetizer.

A wonderful cure reported from Penn?
sylvania with HEiNiTsn's QUEEN'S DE?
LIGHT. A girl fifteen years of ago, pale
aud sickly, emaciated, no appetite, losing
flesh, with sore eyes, sore month, and a

of tho Queen's Delight, her appetite re?
turned, digestion improved, increase in
growth and flesh, sores removed, skin
bright and clear, nnd every indication of
