Wapolfon1? Speech-The Golden Mama In
? .?' Politic ?. ,i
In common ?ssiny oUior journal?
ists, we find much to commend and ad?
mire in the speech, of tho Emperor Na?
poleon. It shows him a ruler disposed
to be progressive und mod?rete, And to
onnnftde fohflyty gft t^r g& jt may bo C0?
. Bistenfc with order. . "I will be responsi?
ble foror?er/' Help rae, Messieurs, to
socuro liberty." This is an utterance at
once' tan of dignity and replete with
wisdom. Louis Napole?n, in this speech,
0UOW8 th ut discaso lias not affected his
r nerves as yet He is willing to y told to
the popular domnnds-to make the
needed re?orui?. But order-"Heaven's
first lew"-this ho will hare. Liberty
is a good thing. Bat Napoleon and
Frauco know that license is not liberty,
and that before liberty stand in impor?
tance-protection to life and property
tho pnblio order and the pnblic tran?
quility. Again: When Napoleon tho
Third said that between those who
would grant nothing and those who
wonld yield everything, a glori?os oonrse
might be chosen, he anggested what
we regard a general principle worthy ol
adoption in general politics. Let us ap?
ply the principle to oar own political
condition. Between those in the South
who wonld grant nothing and those who
wonld yield everything, is there not an
admirable course open to ne? So we
think. So wo hare nrged. This golden
mean between the two extremes-th it
j usia milieu-wo freely admit that this if
the kay to our political role. For it if
the programme that addresses itself tc
the sensible men of the country-to th?
common sense of the people. It is th<
coarse that we advise now in our owi
State. Can wo not find a commoi
ground upon .which to rally the bones
strength of tho State? Standing midway
between the extremists of both parties
we raise the standard- of the men o
South Carolina who arc for light taxes
for a cheap and honest Government, fo
a progressive development of the State
for au era of peuce, prosperity and plenty
We repeat it: cab we not ii ml a comino
ground upou which to rally thu hone
st re. tig th of the State? Wo have befoi
answered thc question agreeably to oe
convictions. That: common gronn
stands midway between Repnblicnuisi
ruo mad and Democracy too oxaotiuf
That common ground is the ground upo
which this journal stands, and has etoo
nineo it took its stand in the spring <
1868.. That common ground is tL
ground of a liberal, reasonable, mod<
rate, progressive Democracy. Upon th
ground let all good men assemble au
make a common, resolute and carne
effort tb reliove our afilie ted State an
un o ver burdened people.

Tho ladies of this truly benevolei
Association propose, on the 21st instan
to give a musical entertainment for i
benefit, and it is almost unnecessary
appeal to the pnblio for its liberal p
tronage. This society, from very sine
beginnings, has worked up to its prose
position of usefulness, aguiusl many at
great disadvantages-small means, gre
poverty and tho general distress of tl
country. A late disaster, by fire, li
rendered it necessary that they shoo

objects of this society to bestow its Lie

donations to a cold charity, but for cot

made this appeal in vain; and wo

interested to learn that she has recently
published a new book. It is called "The
Court Circles of tho Republic;" Which is
a pictnro of life and society under eigh?
teen Presidents of the United States
from Washington to Grant. Ii gives
descriptions of fashionable life; lady
leaders of the ton; belies; distinguished
ministers, statesmen, and travelers, eti?
quette, and styles of dress. Tho reader
will find sametbing spicy in what the
writer calls the "influeuco of the war,
and the revival of splendors in the carnival
mob of gayety in tho administration suc?
ceeding that of Abraham Tin edu."
Thero is a great deal of valunblo history
in it. The work has sixteen stool en?
gravings of tho female lenders of fushion
in Washington, of whom several are, of
course, Southerners. Tho volume has
about 600 pagos and sells at S3.50. It
makes a handsome parlor book. D.
The Colombia correspondent of the
Charleston four tur says:
"A final settlement between the Board
of Directors of the Blue Ridge Railroad
Company and contractors Cresswell &
Co., was agreed upon last evening. The
Directors agreed to pay the contractors
$75,000 and settle with sub-con tran tor
Steers, now engaged on the road. The
contractors, who had previously threat?
ened to institute snit for damages for an?
nulling the contraot, withdrew all claims.
It in supposed they had done abont
$15,000 or 820,000 worth of work on the
road. Attorney-General Chamberlain's
opinion was, that the contractors had
legally forfeited the contraot, and could
not recover damages."
ANOTHER ABBEVILLE OUTRAGE.-The
following letter, from several of the most
?rwninent and respectable citizens of
okesbury, is published in the Abbeville
TB there a point at which forbearance
ceases to be a virtue? Yesterday evening
one Tom Williamson and another negro
rode into our village aud called at tho
residence of ono of our most quiet and
inoffensive citizens, Dr. Newton Sims,
and, asserting that ho was their prisoner,
attempted to lay bauds on his person.
The Doctor walked into bia house aud
shut the door, when Williamson actually
burst open tho door and seized tho Doc?
tor fa very fcoblo man) aud held him fast,
nntil tho cries of his daughters, who sup?
posed bim to be iu tho hands of a mur?
derer, and frightened almost out of their
minds, alarmed some gentlemen near.
On their approach, Williamson released
tho Doctor, loft the house and retired to
the street. Upon boing asked by a gen?
tleman upon what authority ho commit?
ted such an outrage, he produced a war?
rant and assorted that he had ucted ac?
cording to law and to instructions from
headquarters. The warrant was not pro?
duced or spoken of until after the out?
rage was committed.
Now let ns recapitulate: A few days
ago a quiet gentleman, one whose social
position is second to none iu our com
1 munity, was torn from his boggy by vio?
lence, his life threatened, kept in jail for
hours, and at last released under bonds,
and for what offence? Becanso he asked
Mr. Hogo what he supposed were fair
wages for an able-bodied nogro fellow.
Tho representative in the Legislature
threatens to murder us and burn our
bouses over the heads of our families,
and now the constabulary, without ex

and violate our persons in thc presence

ANOTHER GIN-HOUSE DESTROYED.-Wo
regret to learn that the gin-house of Mr.
David Half acre was destroyed by fire on
last Friday, together with ita contents.
Mr. D. N. Halfacre, his son, had, at tho
time, seven bales of cottou and 250 bush?
els seed in the building, which wore con?
sumed, at a loss of about $800. Mr. D.
Halfacre, Sr.'s, loss is estimated at
$2,200. Tho tho was tho result of either
the presence of a piece of flint rock in
the cotton while it was in process of gin?
ning, or tho accidental or mischievous
placing of matches in the same. This
is a severe loss to these gentlemen and
wc sympathize with them in it.
AND STILL ANOTHER BURNED.-Tho
gin-house of Mr. Wm. Davis, three miles
abovo Jalappn, in this District, was de?
stroyed by firo on Tuesday night last.
Between two and throo bales of cotton,
with tho seed, 175 bushels of corn, 3.0U0
pounds fodder, two w:igon bodies, a gin,
thresher and fan were all consumed, at
an estimated loss of about $800. Mr.
Davis is certain that tho fire was the
work of incendiaries, as ho saw two white
men running away from his premisos.
Wc understand ho has taken out a war?
rant for their arrest, tho parlies having

his gin-house and five bulos of cotton,

Act to authorize the Governor to appoint

Charleston, and the magazine guard in

to be sent to tho Hecate.
Tho Committee on Claims reported
favorably on accounts of John S. Simons,
($123.) and John Williams, ($78.) for
services as special constables in Edge
field County. Adopted, and ordered to

Favorable reports were submitted by
the Committee on Bills, to aller nuil
amend an Act entitled "Au Act concern?
ing the ofiiue, duties and liabilities of
Coroners;" to authorize administrators,
executors, aud other fiduciaries, to sell
certain evidences of indebtedness ut

service by indenture; to chango the loca?
tion of the oounty seat of Barnwell
County from 13 luck viii? to tho town of
Barnwell, and to provide for the holding
of courts iu said County.
Mr. Sloan, from tho Special Committee
on River Fisheries, submitted a report
statiug that for want of timo they have
been unable to give the subject that caro
and attontion whioh its importance de?
mands. The art of pisciculture ia at?
tracting a great deal of attention, both
in Europe and in tho Northern Staten,
aud enough has beeu ascertained by ac?
tual experiments to prove that the resto?
ration of migratory fish to our inland
streams and the propagation and culture
of the finer varieties of fresh water fish
is only a question of time, proper legis
latiou and a small on Hey of money. lu
our mountain streams may be found
thousands of salmon trout, where only a
few years since they were unknown.
This-ono of, if not tho finest of, varie?
ties of fresh water fish-was introduced
into one of tho branches of Toxamy
River, by one of our public spirited citi
zeus, by being transported iu an ordina?
ry tiu bucket and turned loose, aud they
have now increased to such un extent
that a single person, with a hook aud
liue, can tuke from 2?U to 3U0 in an af?
ternoon. They have been more recently
introduced into a small stream near Wal?
halla, iu Oconeo County, where th nj- ure
rapidly iucreasing in numbers. Tho ar?
tificial hutching of fish, spawn i ii almost
countless numbers, has proven to be a
task so simple and cheap that it would
appear almost criminal iu our Legisla?
ture not to adopt, some measure whereby
our rivers, once filled with migratory fish,
bhall bo replenished.
In our own State, where every porr?n
so disposed has been allowed either from
want of a law or the proper carrying out
of existing laws on tho subject, to fish
indiscriminately at all seasons, and in
any manuer, there is no euoouiagemeut
to private parties to give it that atten
tiou they would wish; and as the spirit
of tho age requires that our utreuius
should bo public highways, and fish
should bo public property, (where not in
private fish ponds,) it is necessary that
somo legislation should bc had to prevent
A natiou to be happy should have
some inexpensive means of recreation;
there is none so cheap and iuoffensive as
the sport of fishing, which combines re?
creation with profit, aud in tho judg?
ment of your committee auy legislation
that will tend to increase tho quantity of
fish iu our streams will add both to tho
prosperity and happiness of our people.
The report was ordered to lie over for
future consideration. A joint resolution
authorizing the appointment of Fish
Commissioners, and defining the duties

tection of migratory fish, was intro?
