COLUMBA; 8. ?.
Yti?xy Homiflg, February 25, 1870;
We learn that the proposition to ex?
empt from,, taxation for a certain period
such cotton faotories as may hereafter be
established in this State will be brought
up before the present Legislature.' So
convinced are w.e of the importance of
encehre?i?g . thia brahe* of ind?stryy
^^tiniTMiiMiiii. -~1' y^H"'*'" ?pM-! oe?
party, will be disposed to look with
favor upon such a movoment by the
Legislature. If South Carolina expects
to keep abreast with tho columns of.
progress, ehe muet not fail to invite into
the State capital from abroad, and espe?
cially that capital which proposes to seek
investment, fiji cotton fae to ri cs. To work
up our great staple should be our policy;
and if native capital and enterprise can?
not or will not essay it, then let us invite
foreign capital and enterprise to the
good work. ;
The Political Situation Reviewed-A
After the war ceased, we had for some
time in'South Carolina no party forma?
tions. The colored portion of tho popu
lutionv of . the State had no political
status, and ag to tho white voters, broken
in fortunes, defeated in battle, with no
State or country that they could feel was
their own, they: were in no humor to
form political. combinations, Without
power and influence, they were, indeed,
without the ability to form these combi?
nations, had the disposition existed. The
whites of. the State, therefore, passed
politics by, and looked to their private
interests. In the meantime. Congress
assumed the wCrk of reconstruction, and
advanced the freedmen to suffrage.
Then carno political adventurers into
the State-then arose native political
mushrooms-politioal fungi-and soon
the radical party of South Carolina,
composed almost entirely of the colored
people, was organized.
The call for a Constitutional Conven?
tion was issued. The whites declined to
take the field, and as a consequence, the
Constitutional Convention was a conven?
tion of the radical party of the State,
who, without let or hindrance, carried
out their programme. The next step
was to elect State officers. Now, for the
first time, at a late moment, the anti
radical element of the State was aroused.
It was seen that the citadel was about to
be carried before our very eyes. The
chances were desperate, but it was de?
termined, at least, to make a vigorous
effort to save the State from the rude
grasp about to be laid upon it. The op?
position to radioalism naturally took the
form of Democracy, and in April, 18G8,
tho South Carolina Democratic party
met in Couveution, consummated a party
organization, put forth a deolaration of
principles, and placed candidates bofore
the people. As anticipated, the Demo?
cratic candidates wero not elected, but
tho point was made. The seeds of op?
position to radicalism were planted. The
anti-radical element had taken its stand.
Next, the Presidential election came ou;
and the South Carolina Democracy se?
lected their candidates and took the field
in earnest. Our readers are familiar with
the result. It is enough for us to say
that tho entire strength of? tho Democra?
tic party was polled, two out of the four
Congressional candidates wero elected,
and one-half of the Counties of the
State were carried for the Democratic
party. The result was considerable and
full of promise. The contost over, the
Democratic Clubs laid aside their stand?
ards, and as was wise and patriotic, ac?
cepted the result and turned their atten?
tion to the advancement of their material
In the meantime, another election is
to bo held, and the question arise.'} what
shall the opposition do-what specific
lino of action shall wo adopt? Upon
certain points we aie agreed. It is
agreed that the radical party of the State
must bo opposed at the ballot-box. It is
agreed that a generous and general rally
must bo made in behalf of political re?
form. It is further agreed that tho op?
position must acknowledge all the politi?
cal and civil rights now enjoyed by tho
freedmen. It is agreed that tho opposi?
tion must address itself to living issues
must be a party active, progressive and
in full sympathy with the spirit of indus?
trial development and popular enlighten?
ment. It is agreed, in fine, that the
opposition must go bofore the State
pledged to the principle of fair play and
justice to all, to the putting of able and
honest men into office, to tho honest and
cheap administration of our State Go?
vernment, to the development of our
material wealth and to the sincere en?
couragement of foreign capital and im?
migration seeking our State.
- Upon these pointe there seems to be1
no difference. Here we. hare that
the State auti-radical press. The ques?
tion has arisen, how sholl thia fight bo
made? Shall we lay aside 'the Demo
oratio banner and essay a new flag? Oar
renders are a warb that wo hove very de?
cided views upwnMsnsubject. As "par?
ties DOW ?tandi we aro Democr? ts, and we ;
do not propose,to forego,e\thor name or
general pt?tifcipSeJC Q BfcfcE Appreciating
the paramount importance of oonoert of
notion, knowing that the anti-radioalists
bf the State have a common parp?se in
view? moved by an earnest desire to have
all anti-radioali?ta movo like ono man to
the rescue of the State, we -venture to
suggest that it is quite possible to have
these differences settled in a decisivo way
upon a fair and honorable basis. Let
the question in debate be settled by the
anti-radicalists themselves. In duo time
let a convention of earnest and able
men from .every County assemble,
and suggest a platform upon whioh we
may all be able to meet and fight the
good fight of Carolina's redemption; In
the meantime we do not hesitate to de?
clare that we earnestly hope and advise
that tho people will stand firmly by the
Democraoy. Wo, want no hybrid party.
We want honest men by honest, means
to consummate an honest reform. Let
us stand by th? D?mocratie party. Let j
us raise again oar undishonored stand?

interpreted, means in this State roLiri

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.
Mr. Mixsctn offered a concurrent reso?
lution, which, after warm and exciting
debate, was laid on tho table; that the
time for adjonrnmentof this Legislature
bo extended to March 15.
Tho following bills were passed and
ordered to be enrolled: Senate bill to
fix the per diem and mileage of the
members of the next General Assembly;
to recharter Bantowle's Bridge; to grant
to certain persons therein named the
exclusive right to dig and mine in the
beds of tho navigable streams and waters
of the State for phosphate rocks and
phospbatic deposits; to further amend
and perpetuate the homestead.; to raise
supplies and to make appropriations for
tho fiscal year commencing November
1, 18G9; joint resolution to authorize the
Committee of Investigation for tho
Third Congressional District to make a
similar investigation for the Fourth
Congressional District, with an amend?
ment; a bill to authorize the County
Commissioners of Abbeville to lay out a
public road from Greenwood to New
Market; to define the powers and juris?
diction of County Commissioners; to
incorporate tho Plymouth Congregation?
al Church, of Charleston ; to declare the
corporate privileges of the Camden
Bridge Company at an end, and to vest
the saino iu the County Commissioners
of Kershaw County.
This is the way the Fox girls produce
their spiritual rappings: Fasten one end
of a piece of elastic band, four or five
inches long, to the middle of a pound
bar of lead, and tho other end tb a ring
largo enough to receivo the toe of your
shoe. Take another piece -of elastic
band, eight inohes or more la length;
fasten one end to the ring and the other
to the right leg above tho knee; When
standing, with the contrivance arranged
as described, the bur of lead should not
como quite to the ankle. Of course, a
long dress is necessary to conceal it.
When sitting, the raps eau bo made by
putting the toe of the loft shoe .through
tho ring, and with a slight movement of
tho foot causing the lead to strike the
floor. Ono ond of tho bar will be likely
to come in contact with tho floor a little
before tho other end docs, and thus pro?
duce the peculiar double-knock mano by
the Fox mediums. By a slight' lateral
motion of tho foot, raps can bo made
with such a contrivance on a table leg or
ii door. A gentleman walking home with
one of the girls, one evening'after n
seance, noticed a sound in connection
with her step like that made by a wooden
peg in walking; and the embarrassed girl
said she could not conceive what caused

that they could not agree on the price.
Mr. Brooks then turned to Hon. W.
