COLUMBIA, S. C.
Wednesday Morning, March 9,1870.
Dr. Tiarri lpnoetT o Comiuanlcntlon_Snb
Jcct mt Innlgntlra.
We ask tho attention of our readers to
the communication of Dr. Tarnipseed
on the Qubjcct of immigration. Dr. T.
is a man of intelligence and has had the
benefit of exporionoo in foreign coun?
tries. His views, tho result at once of
reflection and observation, will doubtless
resolve attention at the hands of his f cl -
low-oitizone. Ia oar judgment, oar cor?
respondent has not over-esfjmated the
importance of tho subject of immigra?
tion, so far as the political sod general
interests of this State are concerned. Aa
we haye before suggested, we hold it tho
paramount objeot of jmblio concern.
We have never advocated and do not
now seek Chinese auxiliaries. On that
subject, our views are unchanged. But
we do regard it a great point to intro?
duce into our State such a olass of labor
on and citizens as Germany, Groat
Britain, and other European countries
eau supply. It ?B such immigrants that
have contributed so mnoh to the devel?
opment Of tho great North-west. We
need' hero their capital, their muscle,
their'spiral, their! intelligence, their sub
stan ti?l j citizenship.
W% ask,our readers and all concerned
in the building np of South Carolina, to
invesl'?H8 subject with tts legitimate im
portei?^; ; Ii. you. want a remedy for our
general ills in this State-a remedy sharp,
short andr decisive, it is immigration that
furnishes it. This is tho work that the
State Agricultural and Mechanical So?
ciety should take especially in hand. A
work more useful, more pressing, cannot
possibly engage the attention of that
body. Let no ?ene man expect anything
in thin line from the present regime in
South Carolina. This regime naturally
will be found to oppose immigration.
Those who now hold the political field
in South Carolina would prefer to dose
the gates of the State and hold the ground
for themselves and friends of the same
order. The Celt, the German, the Eng?
lishman, the Scotchman, or any light
haired and fair-skinned mau-for these
?hey havo no fancy. But we do want
j ust such men, and whilst we are ready
to give a fair field to all, without regard
to race, or birth, or color, wo have on
especial demand in South Carolina for
the material that has been so useful to
the North and the North-west.
It will bo seen that Dr. Turnipseed
suggests a mode of proceeduro with re?
spect to the introduction and distribu?
tion of immigrants. Let his FLAK bc
considered. Whilst we are impressed
with the impoitance of the subjeot, we
havo at present no plan of our own. It
may bo that the plan suggested will bo
found to meet the case.
One point more. Wo are satisfied
that Dr. T. might havo gone farther and
suggested the modo of accommodating
another class of immigrants. Wo mean
the class disposed to beoomo land?
holders at once. We hold that onr
laud-holders in general throughout the
whole State ought, by general and con?
certed arrangement, to hold out the
most liberal inducements. We throw
out this idea, and would be pleased to
hear from our friends on tho subject.
What we want is a practical, icell-planncd,
well-digested, general scheme in behalf af
European immigration. Dr. Turnipseed
has suggested a plan. Let others givo
thoir views. We invite a consideration
of this subject. It concerns U3 much.
It is worthy of thought.
WAK BETWEEN THE DRV GOODS
PRINCES.-A New York letter says: "For
several days a dosperato fight has been
going on between Stewart and Claflin,
the kings of tho dry goods market.
Stewart started it by 'marking down' be?
low Claflin's figures. Claflin followed
suit; Stewart cut down again; then
Claflin; and so tho war has gono on for a
week. Dry goods men tell me they
never saw tho market so excited as it is
by this war between tho two great
houses. Both parties are selling at
prices that are absolutely ruinous.
Stewart's pugnacity and capital will carry
him throngh, but houses not as strong
as his will probably go by the board be?
fore the storm blows over."
CONGRESSMAN BOWEN.-A special de?
spatch to tho Charleston News, dated
Washington, March 7, says :
"The inquiries of the Military Com?
mittee in tho matter of tho sale of cadot
ships, have lately been dirocted against
Congressman C. C. Bowon, and enough
has already been ascertained to render it
likely that his case may provo even more
interesting in its disclosures than that of
his decapitated colleague, Whittemoro."
J. G. Harding, an Englishman of
wealth and a residont during the lost
throe weeks at the Fifth Avenue Hotel,
in New York, committed suicide Satur?
day morning, in a house of ill-fame, in
West Twenty-seventh street.
Mn. EDITOR: In the varions uphcav?
ings of governments and society, that
sro periodically ?r*is??pSGc?. is thc history
of the so-called oivilizsed world, it.is bat
natural that there should bo Outbursts of
indignation from tho thoughtful and re
fleeting portion of the inhabitants, as
well as some suggestions as remedies for
prevailing evils. The redemption from
political evils, as well as tho machina?
tions of designing men, of governments
having any claims to civilisation anterior
to the state of the present era, lead us
almost to believe that God in his provi?
dence baa interfered directly, either by
permitting the man or men equal to the
times to be born; or a combination of
circumstances that would overthrow the
party who had conspired agaiust the
established government and tho public
welfare. Bomb had its Cinoinnatus;
Prussia its Frederiok; Ru-isia its Peter;
France its Robespierre, Marat and finally
ita Napoleon; England ita Cromwell ; and
last, but not least, America had its Wash?
ington. Some of the abovo named men,
who wero brought to the surface by po?
litical and social convulsions, wera not
good men, but they doubtless were in?
strumental in bringing about a bettor
state of things, both politically as well
as socially. History seems constantly
repeating itself, and it proves conclusive?
ly how little progress Las been mado
during the last 1870 years that the world,
claiming tho front ranks in civilisation,
bas profited nothing by the past. Tho
Roman Government, anterior to thc
Christian ora. was a better one than we
aro living under, to-day. Their adherence
to an oath or compact was far more te?
nacious, and'regarded in many instances
as more sacred than life itself. It has
been well said, that "tho best govern?
ment is tho one beet, administered."
Prominent and leading men of tho party
now in power have, openly proclaim eil
that they are acting "without tho
Constitution of the United States."
And, further, ns the cause of the
South has so often been proven in
accordance to the divine will of God,
they have declared that "there isa higher
law than the Bible," This party term
themselves progressive, beoauso they
have gradually and successful ly en?
croached upon the Constitution and the
Bible, and in the prospective hold out
the inducements that they cannot be
overthrown, because thoa far they have
been accorded the right by the voice of
the people, and that "revolutions never
go backwards." It would lengthen this
article too much to go into tho history of
parties as they have sprung up and passed
away, from the days of Washington up
to tho present. I will only state some
facts as now conceived by me, in reference
to the past, present and fnture condition
and prospects of South Carolina and the
other Southern States.
I have, for many years, been of the
opinion that a Republic, in its purity,
such as ours was in the days of its found?
ers, could not last, unless the country
continued to give birth to pure men of
masterly intellect, such as the publio
could confidently look to as men capable
of shaping their political course. Tho
masses of mankind havo always been
exceedingly ignorant, and we cannot
confidently look to the period when more
is promised tho well-wishers of human
kind. This fact, together with the m??
mense crowding, great want and beggary
in large cities, leads to bribery aud such
corruption as would more than content
the vilest politician. The faot is, great
political and social convulsions never can
be avoided or prevented in any country
where there are great cities; and 1 have
no doubt, (as I expressed myself nnterior
to the late war,) that if all the large cities
of the United States had been destroyed
and their inhabitants forced to become
agricultural, that there would have beon
no war; and all our political difficulties
would have been settled after the forms
prescribed by the Constitution. It was
doubtless thedegeneracy.both physically
und mentally, together with great politi?
cal and social upheavings naturally inci?
dent to densely populatod cities, that
caused the destruction of Troy, Athens,
Thebes, Carthago, Babylon, Jerusalem
and Rome; and there is no doubt, ere
long, all great cities of the world will
undergo the same desperate ordeal.
Mr. Calhoun was ono o? our purest and
greatest men, and as I was brought np a
Democrat, could not holp being one of
Iiis many and great admirers. But there
was ono great defect in Mr. Calhoun's
political history; and that is, while he
was oloquent, earnest and persistent in
declaiming tho great wrongs then in?
dicted, and iu the future to be redou?
bled upon the South, aud while he
pointed out with wonderful pathos tho
quicksands, the Scylla's and Charybdis'
I that should bo avoided, and that if tho
ship of ?Stale carno into collision with,
I would subvert every vestige of our liber?
ties, ho seemingly neglected to proscribe
a logical remedy. Really, in his day,
I oven, there was but one of two things to
preserve tho balance of political power
; iu the youth; the ono was tho renewal of
the slave trade, or thc rapid introduction
; of foreign labor. It is true, if his con
I current majority, advocated in his works,
I and no doubt designod by tho founders
? of our Government as tho palladium of
i our liberties, had beon adhered to, tho
Constitution might havo boon perpetu?
ated. But notwithstanding all his argu?
ments tended to prove that constitu?
tional compacts would bo disregarded, he
seemingly forgot to prescribe a course
that would strongtheu tho ballot-box.
Immigration is tho only remedy left
to redeem our State from political degra?
dation; und this, uo doubt, would relieve
the whole South of her internal trou?
bles, and perhaps, with Northern com?
binations, ovorthrow the party in power.
With a majority of white voters at each
and every ballot-box of any importance
throughout the South, the radical party
would cease to have a name; as the ma?
jorities which gave it importance at
I ?'aTO p?X" If you tek4s"&6 iH?o andi
all that appertain? to him from toe radi?
cal party, we can afford to lei avery ooo
?fro fu eren ally tom
Sis ?$aT?oe, (friendship
politically and socially. Thia will never
como to pass BO long as he ia in the majori-1
ty; and so long aa men holding either
high social or political, positions accept
or hold office under the jcriediotion of
their party, whether it be, aa somo reason,
for thefpublic welfare? or as others say,
"for the-money." All such, when time
and events havo effaced the radical party,
should be remembered, only to wear the
mark of him who "sold his birth-right
for a mess of pottage."
It is so plain to see that the white mun
must rule this continent, that "he who
runs may read." Tba only question is,
which is the shortest w^y to effect this?
I have always been, and nra still, one
of the best friends thc negro can claim
in tho position and capacity in which
God designed him-that of au inferior
to the white race. This I um willing to
bo tested by the ovidonce of my former
slaves. In order to make me bis friend
in tho radical sense, it devolves upon his
party to prove the converse of my pro?
position, and no longer appeal to the
sympathies of our race, in order to hide
And now for tho points for which
I have briefly endeavored to preparo
your readers. Immigration as now in?
stituted cannot be a success for the pre?
sent generation. The great difficulty is,
that the organizations as now constituted
compel every man who wishes to pro?
cure emigrant labor, to understand, as
well ns undergo, cither all, or at least
a part of its risks, of losses or gains.
This plan is confining it at onco to tho
leading and intelligent minds of the
people of the Sonth. The immigrant
should be placed at every man's door, BO
that when he is in need of labor-the
demand for which ls constantly increas?
ing-he can employ bim, giving to
parties such a bonus as would be remu?
nerating for the great convenience. My
proposition is, that the men of South
Carolina, who comprehend fully the
necessity of moving in this matter, form
a joint stock company of, say $10, $20,
350 or even $100 per share. Organize a
central or distributing bureau at Borne
central point, perhaps Columbia would
do; and sub-bureaus at each village in
the State; let all arrivals first report at
the central bureau, and bo distributed
according to tho various demands of the
sub-bureaus throughout the State.
Whenever an im m ?grant arri ves, his name,
age and birth-place, as well as his trade
or occupation, as well as letters of refer?
ence or recommendation, should be
duly recorded for future reference. The
farmer or planter applying for a laborer,
has omy to call for the kind of laborer,
and the clerks at each bureau, by refer?
ring to tho books, can send him the sort
of persons he desires; he, tho farmer or
planter, paying all expenses incurred by
the bureau, as well as a bonus for ex?
penses and profits to stockholders.
Thorn might be an experimental farm
established in tho vicinity of each bu?
reau, where these immigrant laborers
could be profitably omployed until
called for; nnd should any remain on
hand during the summer months, they
could be directed in farm work, so as to
make and harvest a'full crop. Agents
could be sent to England, Ireland, Scot?
land, Franco, Holland, Sweden and
Norway, Germany and Italy; and I am
told by persons who have recently re?
turned from trans-Atlantic countries,
that great numbers could bo procured
by only securing them a homo aud em?
ployment I havo seen this system
working admirably infPari*, in getting
employment for laborers and domestics
in every capacity; there it has proven,
not only a success, but of mutual benefit
and profit to all parties. I cannot, for
one moment, see how it could be ma?
naged in those largo European cities in
auy other way. Some ten or twelve
years ago the samo system waa com?
menced in New York city.
Tho distributing bureau for the great
North-western States is Castlo Garden,
iu New York city. Wo never will suc?
ceed to any extent until wc adopt the
joint stock company plan, and no longer
trust to tho general intelligence of tho
people upon this matter. Tho immi?
grant desiros to come; givo him the
means; place him at tho door of thoso
pleading for labor; sosurc go^d labor by
references; make their contracts, and all
will move on harmoniously, and South
Carolina and tho whole South will no
longer dip their colors to hators of law,
order and good government.

MR. EDITOR: WO had tho pleasure of
attending, last evening, one of the de?
lightful entertainments of Tremaine and
Brother, given in behalf of tho Mission
Presbyterian Church. There waa some?
thing so natural about the whole per?
formance, that we carno away feeling
moro than repaid. Had it not been for
tho rostrum and benches, wo would felt
that we were in the family circle. Tho
singers seemed to throw their whole soul

E.OSKOO.-Tho Norfolk Haily Journal, ot
December ll, 1869, says:
"This medicine is rapidly gaining confi?
dence of the people, and tho numerous testi?
monials of ita virtuos, given hy practitioners of
medicine, leaves uo doubt that it is a safe and
reliable remedy for IMPCRITX OF THE BLOOD,
LIVER DISEASE, Seo."
Thc last Medical Journal contains an arti?
cle from Prof. lt. S. Newton, M. D., President
o? the E Medi-Colloge, city of New York, that
speaks in high terms of ita curative proper?
ties, and gives a special recommendation of
Koakoo to the practitioners of medicine.
This ia, we believe, tho first instance where
such medicines have been officially endorsed
by tho Faculty of any of the Medical Colleges,
aiid reflects great credit upon the skill of Dr.
Lawrence, its compounder, and also pats
"Koskoo" iu tho VAN of all other medicines
of the present day. F2G
A TEJ?ALE REGULATOR.-Woman and her
needs. For complaints and irregularities to
which her sex is exclusively liable, HEINITSH'S
QCEEN'S DKI.IOIIT is recommended on the au?
thority of wives, mothers and nurses, who have
tested its tome and regulating properties,and
' know whereof they speak;" and also with tho
sanction of ablo physicians, who have admi?
nistered the QUEEN'S DELIOHT to their female
patients, in obstinate cases, with the happiest
results. Almost all female complaints are
complicated with mental gloom and despon?
dency, tho gentle and lasting exhilarating
effects of tho QUEEN'S DELIOHT is admirably
adapted to such cases. As a remedy for hys?
teria and mental depression, it has no equal
in the world. Nursing mothers find it an ad?
mirable invigorant. It ia highly satisfactory
that this preparation should prove so emi?
nently beneficial to the sex. Young and old
will find relict always. For sale hy FISHER SC
