As oar readers baye observed, the bill,
celled a bill to extend the limits of this
oity, baa passed the Ho?se, with this
modification, that an election is tobe
held in April, instead of February, as
originally provided, and another election
is to be held at tho period of the general
Stale elections. We are not unprepared
for this result. It is about what was to
be expected. We regard this act of the
House of Representatives as a wanton,
outrageous and shameful abuse of legis?
lative authority. It is a kind of legisla?
tive outlawry. The fact of the matter is,
the present Legislature is composed
chiefly of legislative outlaws. Their le?
gislation is frequently outside of law,
justice nnd decency-to say nothing of
common honesty. We tell them this
they may go On in their reckless car cor;
bat for ?ll this, they will yet be brought
before tho bar of publio judgment, and
when the time for this shall come round,
they will beheld to a strict account by
those whose rights thoy trample under
fool, and whose sensibilities they seek to
outrage. This notion of the House, in
seeking to upset an election held under
its own laws, and ia seeking to oust men
from the offices to which they have been
regularly elected, is ip keeping with that
career of radicalism in the South, and in
Sooth Carolina, which makes it smell in
the nostrils of the decent people of the
State. Let its arrogant and presump?
tuous exponents bear this is mind, that
its days are numbered. The unalterable
resolve-the stern determination of the
mea and the women of the opposition
make its doom certain. Between what
is involved in radicalism in South Caro?
lina, and what is involved in the oppo?
sition, there is an "irrepressible con?
flict." And in this conflict, radicalism
mast go down. All that is natural and
logical and right, that it contains-this
will survive. AU that is illogical and
unnatural.and indecent, that it contains
this will die; and when this dies, not
much will remain. It may flourish now,
"like a green bsy tree.'* But not long
will this be. Its leaves will wither; its
sap will dry up. Its fruits will turn to
ashes on the tips of those who feed upon
them. Another tree will put forth its
leaves in Sooth Carolina, and it will bo
something like ths upturned and pros?
tate palmetto, and under its branches
all classes of the people will repose, se?
cure in rights and secure in property.
These are tho thoughts that occur to us
when we refleot upon the iniquitous vote
of the majority of the House. The ef?
forts of those radicals and Democrats
who voted and protested against this
wrong to the people of Columbia, we
acknowledge end appreciate. Wo have
no favors to ask of this Legislature. But,
speaking for our citizens, we demand
justice and fair play. As we expect some
day to have it in our power to dispense
justice, so now we demand that it bo con?
ceded to us. History shows how a Sylla
prodaces a Marius, und her long trea?
sured wrath and sense of wrong finally
seeks retributive vengeance. Let, there?
fore, tbe moder.dion of to-day scenic
the moderation of to-morrow.
It remains to be seen what thc Senate
will do. We e.innot but presume that it
will arrest the iniquity of the House.
We care, comparatively, little about tho
extension of the limits of Columbia.
That is a small matter. It is unneces?
sary; bat this does not amount to much.
But that, under tho pretence of doing
this, it should be attempted to lamper
with a valid electiou, and to oust men
having vested rights in their offices-for
the purpose of trying to place this city j
in the bands of radicalism-to the se-,
rious dotrimout of tho business und
tbe future of Columbia-this is what wc
are concerned about. Truly we have '
conto to n pretty pass, when such us
Thompson and Neaglo and Parvis, kc, j
undertake to regulato matters to suit ?
them in Columbia. Wo presume they !
have takou their cue from the dead Ste- |
vena and the living Nash, and have for-1
mally "camped outside of the Condilli- j
tion"-outside, too, of law, order and
THE WOKD NBC?no.- Forney's Chro?
nicle says: "Considerable sensitiveness
is manifested at evory colored conven?
tion about the uso of tho word negro.
The body now sitting form no exception,
a discussion having arisen the other day
concerning its appearance in an official
document. Mr. Langston apparently
was the only defender of the obnoxious
adjective. This feeling, we tbiuk, is un?
called for and mistaken. Negro is a good
Latin word transferred to English, mean?
ing blank. If the word is shameful, tho
fact mast be more so, and the colored
men make an admission against them?
selves io objecting to it. This word came
into the English language long before
America was discovered, and conse?
quently Cannot bo looked on as a term of
derision or reprouoh.
The Monopoly of ?la? Pttssphntvs.
State belong itjr property. T^fcfflqers
whom they eledl to s^fnisttrlttiafffirs
sore simply thoir agent?, to corty out thoir
views, and to' protect their interests.
They have no right to appropriate tho
proporty of the people to their own uses,
nor to give it away to others without a
full equivalent to the public treasury.
Let UH soe how these requirements are
complied with, in the bill before tho
Senate, which certain Senators and
Representatives propose to divest tho
whole people of the State of a magnifi?
cent property,capable of conferring innu?
merable blessings upon them ana: their
posterity, and appropriate it to them?
selves and the chosen few whom they
have selected as the participants in this
enormons scheme of spoliation.
The Carolina phosphates are tho most
extensive deposit of fertilizers known,
and is without a rival iu its fertilizing
properties, and the facility with which it
can be brought into use. The control of
this deposit, therefore, controls the price
of fertilizers throughout the United
States, and enables its owners to deter?
mine the tax they shall levy upon every
farmer who may desire to nae them, and
the proportion of his crop they will
dutch for their own coffers. It will not
be tho interests of the public, but their
own, that will determine them in affixing
their price for it; and they will take care
that they will have the lion's share ef the
labor of the farmer and the products of
it. Nay, tho very farm that lies on the
borders of our navigable streams will
not be permitted to be fertilized by the
phosphates lying withiu a few feet of it,
until they aro carried to Charleston, and
by manipulation and adulteration,
changed into fertilizers and sold for 960
por ton. And what is the equivalent
proposed to be given for this gigantic
monopoly? Why, twenty or forty cents
per ton, a snm that will not pay the ex?
penses of collecting it. Thus they offer
to pay forty cents per ton to the State for
it, and to sell it to the people at $60 per
ton. The poor freedman who has got
Ina little farm of worn-out land, upon
which the application of these fertilizers
would make his two bales of cotton five
bales, and his two bushels of corn five
bushels, dare not take it from the stream
where Providence planted it for his use,
and he cannot afford to buy it at its ex?
travagant price, and he is therefore com?
pelled to do without it, and leave its use
to his moro opulent neighbor. Thus the
old story is repeated of making the rich
richer, and the poer poorer, and this by
those who aro pledged to the support of
the rights of the working man.
Mit. Enrron: In your issue of tho 16th,
you reported correctly the gist of tho
bill before the Legislature, for tho re?
building of the Congaree Bridge. In?
asmuch as the Counties of Richland and
Lexington ure to be benefitted by a free j
bridge, more especially than the State at
largo, it is proposed that they shall pay
the assessed value of the property of the
Columbia Bridge Company; bear their
proportionate share of the taxation to
raiso the $40,000 asked for from the
State, to repair the piers aud put the su?
perstructure on, and finally, keep it in
repair when finished. If but u small
portion of tho cost of the work falls due
in any one year, as is proposed, the tax?
ation for this purpose will not be seri?
ously felt. Of eourse, it is assumed,
that a freo bridge is eminently proper,
and that the right way to got it is by an
equitable taxation. A free bridge would
bo the best for both producer und eon
j sumer; because it is calculated to fncili
i tate tho business of the former and
j cheapcu tho cost of product** to the lat
! ter; and wo all, whether producers or
I consumers, must contributo a share to
the cost of transportation; aud, in snell
a cu:;o as tho one under consideration,
muy we not do it iu tho way proposed,
which is tho cheapest, and thus avoid
the toll-keeper's salary, the cost of toll?
house, and dividends to stockholders.
Besides, tho good effects upon tho pro?
ductive industry and tho advantages
which would accrue indirectly to the citi?
zens generally, would be largo aud hard
to calculate. The comparatively small
su ru usked for from tho State, would be
more thau returned to tho citizens, by
the consequent promotion of industry,
trade and manufacturing interests, aud
by tho husbanding of our own resources,
as considered in connection with tho
competition wo have from Georgia. Aud
this bridge, from being at tho Capital of
tho State, and in a sentral part of it,
would benefit a large portion of the peo?
ple. And the great magnitudn of the
work almost precludes tho possibility of
the two Counties doiug it alouo, as inti?
mated by "Tax-Payer," or of the case
being quoted as a precedeut. And your
correspondent is also iu error, when he
says tho movement is in tho interest of a
fow capitalists; unless by a few, he means
all that wc have, and that that interest
is promoted by tho advantages extended
to thc most huinblo and obscuro indi?
vidual. And are tho people to do with?
out a bridge ucross the Congaree, because
sonto "enterprising citizens" have bridg?
ed Broad River, and forever confine
themselves to u flat? The reference
niado to bribery, in connection with this
subject, at tho present session, probably
rests upon as flimsy a foundation as any
of the rest of Tax-Payer's positions.
Some of those who are likely to bo in ns
good a position as any to know, if such
a thing is being done, assort, asa matter
of simple justino to tho members of the
Legislature, that not the slightest inti?
mation of anything of the kind has come
to their knowledge, and that the notion
taken, has been upon the merits of tho
bill, which are deemed quite sufficient to
commend it to the favorable considera?
tion of the Legislature and the masses.

REPUDIATION.-Une of the features of
Mr. Bontwell's report is his recommen?
dation tht.t tho national banks shall bo
compelled to accept four and one-half
per oent. bonds in exchange for the nix
per cent, bonds, which they now huveon
deposit in tho Treasury, as security for
the redemption of their notes. Now, in
this connection, we have a plain and
simple question to ask. The Grant ad?
ministration, we all know, professes the
utmost horror of repudiation. It can
tolerate nothing that has the look, tone,
taste, or smell of repudiation, Bays the
Louisville Courier-Journal. At the men?
tion of tbe word, it froths and foams at
the mouth, like a victim of catalepsy.
But what we have to ask is this-if the
Government compels the bond-holders to
surronder their bonds for less than tho
value of them, does it not, to the full
extent of tho difference, practice repu?
diation? Is not such compulsion repu?
diation to all intents and purposes? Is
not the Government as much a repudia?
tor in repudiating a part of the interest I
on every bond os it wonld be if it repu?
diated tho entire bond? Is not the sum
and substance of the difference simply
the difference between repudiating a part
and repudiating tho whole? And yet
people, who profess to be shocked at the
very suggestion of repudiation, will talk
to you of Boutwell's report as a model
of wisdom and honesty and honor! Rad?
icalism makes strange havoc of men's
The Chicago Tribune, which is gene?
rally regarded os one of the most ra?
tional, as it is certainly one of the
ablest, of the radical organs, doesn't
propose to cut down the prerogatives of
tho Supreme Court, but holds that the
Government is under no obligation to
enforce that tribunal's decisions. Tho
editor says that, if tho court decides
measures to be unconstitutional, the de?
cision docH not mnke them so, und that
neither the Executive nor Congress is
bonud by it; that tho President will still
use the army and navy to enforce the
laws as he understands them, and that
tho Supremo Court may use its Marshals
aud the posse comital us to enforce the
laws as it construes them. It seems to
us that his theory, if neted on, would be
subversive of all government except a
despotic one. Who or what could resist
the army and navy? What would tho
\ posse comitatus amount to?
NORTH CAROLINA RAILROAD BOND EX
CITEMENT-THREATS or R?PUDIATION,
ETC.-A despatch from Raleigh, North
Carolina, dated Thursday morning, Bays
that great indignation prevails through?
out tho State in regard tk tho deprecia?
tion aud misappropriation of the railroad
and other bonds, issued during tho ses?
sion of the Legislature of 1868-69. Bills
now pending in both Houses, requiring
tho return of all new Stato bonds yet
unsold to the Treasury, to bo re issued
only by instalments as needed by tho
railroads, have been postponed over tho
Christmas holidays. A bill is pending,
however, and will pass, calling in uncon?
stitutional bonds, issued to the Chatham
Railroad and fraudulently sold; but pro?
viding that innocent holders of them
shall receive iu lieu thereof, bonds held
by tho State on that road. A resolution
on Wednesday, passed the Senate, and
will probably pass tho House, ordering
railroad presidents to sell no moro Stute
bonds at loss than sevonty-tivo per cent.
Tbero aro general and wide-spread ru?
mors that bonds appropriated for rail?
road purposes, havo been misapplied and
fraudulently used, and persons implicat?

TUE SOUTHERN UNIVERSITY.-The Rev.
Mr. Thackara, of Florida, who has been
appointed the agent of the Southern
University, and selected to present to
the Southern Dioceses the appeal of tho
Bishops thereof, for aid in behalf of that
institution, is here. We commend his
mission to the liberality of our people.
As our readers know, it is proposed to
establish iu Tennessee, in a commanding
spot, a grand Southern University, whioh
in time may became tho Oxford of, at
least, tho Southern States. This Uni?
versity is under the auspices of the
Bishops of the Episcopal Church of the
Southern States, from North Carolina to
Texas. It is proposed here to train boys
not only for the ministry of God, bnt
also for the general business of life. The
University has been started into life al?
ready. The last session closed with 100
students. Others have been denied ad?
mission because of a want of room. To
raise a sum of money to increase these
accommodations, is the duty imposed
upon the Rev. Mr. Thackara. This gen?
tleman is thoroughly in earnest-elo?
quently pleads his noble cause, and
deserves that his appeal be answered.
He has received contributions from our
citizens, but we hope that these may be
increased. Contributions may be sent
to-day to the Rev. Mr. Shand, who will
convey them to the reverend agent ol
the Bishops of tbe Southern Diooeses.
Although under the auspices of the Epis?
copal Church, this educational scheme
oommends itself to the general sympa?
thies and tho common support of our
