INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT OB?
STE UCTED-THE OBSTR UCTION
Here, in South Carolina, the aspira?
tions of the great body of the people
white and colored-run in the line of
material advancement. The desire to
mend hie fortunes is present with almost
every man. What people want, is to
surround themselves with the comforts
and conveniences of home; to gather the
means to educate their children, and to
lay up something for old age and the or?
dinary contingencies of life. But in
order to do this effectually, the Govern?
ment of the State must open the avenues
of enterprise by wise legislation and by
economical management-it must reduce
the public expenses. A cheap, a wise
and an energetic, progressive regime is
what we need. This, we havo not. We
have a multitude of unnecessary offices.
We have a set of officials, some of whom
Ure notoriously dishonest. Wc have a
Legislature, many of which are utterly
ignorant and not a few shamelessly cor?
rupt. Take it as a whole, the present
Government of South Carolina is an out?
rage upon the age and an incubus upon
the State. It has little statesmanship,
Jess virtue and abounds only in ''cheek."
It excels only in the art of making
money for itself. Individual exceptions,
no doubt, there are, but as a general
thing, we oonceive that we ure loyal to
truth, in saying what we have said, and
true to our journalism in not failing to
otter it. We bold that it is the present
rule that prevails in South Carolina,
??hich is a bar io the State's progress. It
is true, that in spite of this bar, we have
done and will contiuue to do much in
the way of bettering our condition. But
remove thi? bar-givo us in South Caro?
lina a decent Government-and wo will
move rapidly on the road of recupera?
tion. Capital and immigration would
come and come abundantly-the spirits
of the intelligent people of the State
would grow elastic-confidence would bo
restored-enterprises would be under?
taken-wages would be higher-the State
would be vitalized, and the fires of a re?
newed patriotism and State pride would
glow in breasts now closed to these influ?
ences. It is time for us to assert our
inalienable rights-not by the sword
not by deception-not by compromise
with au element that we reject-but by
energetic, combined, resolute action at
the ballot-box-by a will that conquers
a moderation that wins-a reasonable?
ness that convinces. Sbakspeare said:
.'Fie upon the world: it is an un weeded
garden. Things rank and gross in nature
possess it merely."' South Carolina is
now au uuweeded garden, uud much that
is rank and gross in nature doth possess
it. Let us see to it that the weeding
process is undertaker.-that tue Upns
liketree of radicalism is cut dowu.

Tun FBAMKIK? PRIVILEGE.-Senator
Shermau, iu his opposition to the aboli?
tion of tho franking privilege, says that
the petitions in its favor are mostly pre?
pared by postmasters for signatures. A
.contemporary well says, however, that
there ia no class who have botter oppor?
tunities' to notice tho disgraceful abuses
of the privilege than postmasters, and
their active interference in the mutter
?U.*?y be taken as a proof that the evil is
one that should be promptly corrected.
Tho subject is one that has been dis?
cussed for the past twenty years, and
Congressmen should gracefully yield
their consent to a reform that is demand?
ed by all classes of the people, regard?
less of party ties or other issues.
THE TWIGGS' SWORDS,-At a special
terra of tho Superior Court of New York,
tbs; other day, a motion was mudo by the
counsel of Mrs. Florence, (the relative of
General Twiggs, who claims possession
of the swords of honor left by that vete- :
tau, and cribbed by Butler. during bis
illustrious reign iu the Crescent City,) to
compel the Hero of Big Bethel to show '
cause why he should not be attached for j
contempt. Mrs. Florence has thc nerve, j
teaaoity and talent ot" Mrs. Myra Clark
Gaines, and will have chose s.v?rds, if it !
takes forty years ana every cent she aad
ber wealthy connections have. Butler
might as well baud over those highly- j
ornamented weapons. lu Twiggs' hands,
they were of some use to thc "nation,"
but in his they will only serve to provoke
comparisons which will be odious to him. j
li he had Napoleon's, Wellington's and
Washington's, he could never draw or j
sheathe them with honor. It i.s enough !
to make that hard-fighting, hard-swear- i
:.og old soldier turn in his grave, to have '
such II parody ou a soldier ns Butler in
possession of the evidences ot" his "gal*
it:it and meritorious" conduct.
The Mechanics' Bauk of New Voile has
ben victimized with au altered check
from SCO to S10.0G1, certified after it was
'Altered, aud sold to a broker in Wall
TLC New Yolk Time* says ..the de?
mand for a reduction of the taxes has
Jpow reached a point at which no govern
flleat could afford to disregard it.*'
TUESDAY, JANT/ARV 25
The Semite met at 12 ni. Preaideut pro
lem. Montgomery in the Chair.
Mr. Haye? introduced a preamble and
resolutions relative to the death of Hon.
Mr. Hayes spoke in support of his
resolution, and said:
MR. PRESIDENT: The telegraph has
already announced to the people of
South Carolina the melancholy tidings
of the death of Judge Boozer; and, sir,
while that announcement has caused
sorrow to many stricken hearts, it is upon
the peoplo of his native country that this
sad intelligence has fallen with the most
crushing power. He was, in many re?
spects, a remarkable mau-a mau of
great decision of churactcr and of fixed
principles-and he lins passed away,
leaving no blot upou his unsullied name.
My acquaintance with Judge Boozer
was of long duration, uud of the most
intimate and friendly character, and dates
back to the period of my earliest recollec?
tion. At that time, and to thc period of
his elevation to the Bench, he wno the
leading lawyer at the Lexington Bar.
He was born, if I am correctly in?
formed, in the year 1808, and graduated
from the South Carolina Collego, iu 1828
or 1829. At the ago of twenty-four, he
was chosen by the peoplo of Lexington
to represent them iu the State Legisla?
ture, since which time he has occupied a
prominent place in the political history
of this country. In I860, he was a mem?
ber of the National Democratic Conven?
tion, which met in Charleston, to nomi?
nate, candidates for President and Vico
PreBident of the United States, and, j
when the split took place iu that body,
Judge Boozer and ex-Governor Perry, of
the South Carolina delegation, alone re?
He opposed the seccssiou movement
with all the vigor cf his great mind, and
declared that if it were carried out, it
would inaugurate a civil war such as hud
been rarely witnessed by mankind. Tho
result verified tho wisdom of his forecast.
Immediately after the close of that san?
guinary struggle, ho was among thc first
in the State to como forward to aid in
the reconstruction of this Government.
Sir, ho was, emphatically, a Union mao;
he ioved this Government with an nitec
tion bordering upon idolatry, and to its
preservation lie devoted all thc energies
of a long aud blameless life.
Tho resolutions were seconded and
The following papers were received
from the House: Joint resolution to pro?
vide for the indigent poor of tho State;
bill to extend the time for the paymeut
of teachers; joint resolutions to advance
SG.O?O per mouth to the Superintendent
of tho South Carolina Penitentiary, until
the necessary appropriations for continu?
ing the building; to incorporate tho
Dclancey Kifle Company; to alter and

? Mr. C. D. Hayue, from the Commit- j
I tee appointed to prepare suitable pre?
amble and resolutions in regard to the;
j death o: Hon. Lemuel Boozer, submit- !
I ted the following:
Whereas, ia the mysterious dispensa- '
! lions of au over-ruling Providence, it
hath pleased the Almighty Judge of the '
i universe to remove from his sphere cf i
; usefulness among us, cue who. by his i
j patriotism, fidelity and honesty, had :

I respect aua gratitude towards bim, and

and whereas, by his untimely demise,
South Carolina has lost forever one of
i tho brightest jewels in her diadem of j
State. And whereas, it is alwrys becom- !
I ing iu those who sincerely mourn, to pay !
! a titting tributo cf respect and esteem to

Resolved, That the House of iiepre

regret, the intelligence >. f tho death of'
the late Jr.dge Boo/.er, a:i<: regard his |
loss as a public calamity.
Resolved, That we look upon hid bright1

est and patriotie citizen, as ono worthy!
to be followed by all who desire to emu

South Caroiiuu a community, than v hieb
none higher i an su.ywhen exist.

lowed to vacate hts s '?t. when .Mr. Whip- :
per tvok the Chair. Mr. Moses arose j
and seconded tue preuuj' le aud resolu?
tions as follows
Mr.. SPEAKER.: 1 trust this preamble'
and these resolut.on will be unanimous- ':
ly adopted. It i- .?r iper that the legis- . :
lutivo department ot the Government 1
should pay a merit sd tribute to the mern- :1
orv of tho dignitary whose ttidden ! )ss I
will be deplored by the whole people of i \
South Carolina. While .t may more pe- i
culiarly belong to the Judiciary to take ; ]
such action as will preserve upon its re-1 i
cord its est?malo of tho bereavement to l <
which it has been subjected, it becomes 11
us, as a component, part of this General !1
Assembly, from which the deceased was |
elevated to the honorable position which ?(
he held, to set forth, in an enduring form, j '
our high appreciation of tho character, | 1
loo.ruing and worth of the departed, and
our sincere participation in the publio
sorrow which now mourns the loss of the
State in the deaf* of one of its best citi?
zens and highest officers. The Hon.
Lemuel A. Boozer was born in Lexing?
ton County. He was a graduate of the
South Carolina College, and soon after
he left its walls, with distinction, he en?
tered on the study and practice of the
law. No better evidence can be adduced
of the .standing and reputation of a citi?
zen than that which is afforded by the
testimony of the community in which he
waa born and lived. Tested by this rule,
the character of the deceased will blazon
forth with a light which will render clear
the high estimate placed upou him by
those who knew him best. Always a
favorite ot the people, he was, soon after
his majority, sent to the House of Rep?
resentatives, and, by repeuted elections
thereafter, was returned to tho Senate.
There, for years, he was recognized as
au able debater and a clear-sighted logis- j
later. Never having iu view the advance?
ment of the chosen few, but compre?
hending the true position of the repre?
sentativo of the people, he looked to the
prosperity and welfare of the Stute, irre?
spective of personal ambition, and cure?
less of, aud indifferent to, all influences
save those of which an honest heart and
a sound judgment could approve.
When, from one end of South Carolina
to the other, the mad shock of secession
was felt, faithful amoug the faithless, be
faced its force, and could not be allured
from his positiou by either the favor or
frowns of those who ruli?d the political
simoon. He swerved not from the line
of duty which be hud prescribed for him?
self. Firm and steadfast in his principles,
amid the raging contest as to who should
be the foremost mau to strike the blow,
he still venerated the uniou of his
fathers, and would raise no unhallowed
baud against it. During to risk ail the
direful cousequeuees which might follow
his isolation from those who had hereto?
fore been the favorites of the State in
his constant, unmoved stand, he pre?
sented a picture upon which every true
lover of his country might look with
admiration and delight. The existence
of such meu marks epochs :u the history
of the world. At the close of the war,
when the results of the rebellion were
brought home to those who, after 'sowing
tho storm." were then "reaping the
whirlwind,*'and South Carolina could be
re-admitted to the Union only by an
acceptance of the terms and conditions
prescribed by the reconstruction Acts,
whilst he knew that from his old associ?
ates it was but inviting obloquy and
abuse, he had the moral courage to act
on the convictions of his judgment, and
lent tho aid of his character and expe?
rience to build upon the ruins of the post
a monument to freedom, which we trust
may be as enduring aa time itself. What
cared he for the smile or tho frown ol
this or that dissatisfied (because disap?
pointed) politician, when he felt that his
assistance was required in the organiza?
tion of a new State, which promised
peace, happiness and advancement to al
the people, irrespective of race or color.
He accepted a seat in the Convention,
from his old County, and was instru
mental iu framing a constitution, undei
whose provisions this General Assembly
is held. As a tribute to his worth, ami
as a slight evidence of the regard am:
appreciation of the Republican party, lit
was nominated and elected Lieutenant
Govcrnc r. On the organization of tin
State Judiciary, he was elected, by c
most fluttering vote, Judgo of the Fiftl
Circuit. All that was expected of him
who had proved au honest statesman
was realized, to its fullest exteut, whet
transferred to a new forum. Learned it
the law-firm and impartial-his jadtcia
career, though brief, was such as to ex
tort, eveu from these politically op
posed tc him. the tribute of respect ant
We must not venture to intrude inti
that private circle of which he was tin
head. Kind, charitable, pure, ht
gathered around him a loved and happi
family, who, iu this hour of their grea
bereavement, must be consoled by tin
assuaging reflect iou that they have it
their sorrow tho sympathy of all win
knew the one they have lost, and thu
they eau justly hope that his good work:
on earth have earned for him a place ii
Heaven. Whilo we tender hts family
our heartfelt condolence, and expr?s;
the loss which the State has suffered, lc
this mournful event teach us to remem
ber that all is but mortal here below
and let it also induce us to bear with tb
frail ties and infirmities of each othe
with a patience and temper that will thc
bette r prepare us for that solemn da;
when tho deeds of the flesh shall bi
judged of in tho .->pirit.

THE BURNS CLUB.-Last Dight, tho
anniversary o? the birth of Scotland's
favorite poet was duly kept up by tho
Burns Club, of Columbia-materially
assisted by the admirers o? the poet on
this side of the Atlantic. The supper
was provided by Mr. McKenzie, and it
was of a character to go beyoud the vergo
of criticism: it consisted of fish, flesh,
fowl, bivalves, with all the rt ceteras
cakes, tartiets, pies, jellies, etc. And to
assist digestion, a most excelleut orches?
tra, led by Sig. Angelo Mauro, dispensed
familiar airs, which made those within
hearing of tho delicious strains evince a
disposition to trip "the light fautastic. "
After a sufficient opportunity had been
obtained for enjoying the substantials,
President Melton auuounced tho regular
toasts, which were properly responded
to -the first by Mr. King, with the song
of "R-iatin* Bobin;" the second by Mr.
Wai. Symmers, with "Annie Laurie."
Just ut this point, we remembered that
I it was essentially necessary to evaporate,
so that our good citizens should be io
' formed of what was going ozi. To borrow
? a couplet from Burns:
..Tho night (h ave ou wt' saug?) au' clatter;
Aird ay tho alo waa growing better."
