We are pleated to find that the views
of Dr. Turnipseed, on the subject of
immigration, are attracting notice. The
Columbia Guardian and the Abbeville
Press and Banner incline to the mode of
action that Dr. T. suggests. The problem
of our future prosperity is to be solved
by tho employment pf several agencies,
and chief amongst these, is the agenoy
whereby a good class of Citizens and la?
borers shall be added to oar population.

The Anderson 'Intelligencer recently
called upon the Charleston Republican
to make good its chargea of corruption
against some of the Democratic mem?
bers of the Logie] at uro. At the same
time, the Intelligencer expressed ita opi?
nion that the charge was false and ca?
lumnious. We observe that the Marion
Star, a Democratic journal, gives cre?
dence to this rumor. We have always
regarded oar Democratic members as
faithfal, incorruptible and true. If we
narembeen mistaken-and we still think
that we cannot be-no party considera?
tions or any other considerations shall
prevent ns from coming out in a denun?
ciation of corruption. Corruption is the
same to ns, whether it pertains to white
or black; to Democrat or radical. In
South Carolina, we seek a return to the
period of official honesty and political
integrity, and whosoever, in public life,
may fall by the way-side, let him be

able response from several bf our State

GEN. QUES ADA'S MANIFEST?.-Gen.
Manuel Qdesada, Commander-in-Chief
of the Republican Army of the leland of
Cuba, who arrived in New York about
ten days ago, has published an address
to the people of the United States. Tho
General speaks hopefully of the future,
and boldly avows that the Cubans fight?
ing in Cuba have resolved that their
country shall soon be a free and inde?
pendent nation. A tabular statement of
the strength of the liberating army is
contained in the General's manifesto,
showing a total strength of 61,688 men,
5,085 of whom are in the Oriente Dis?
trict, 7,584 in the Camagnay, and 47,000
in Lins Villas. Not only have the Cubans
an organized army, but they have also,
aocording to General Quesadu, in the
district occupied by their troops,
churches, schools and manufactories for
the supplying of war material. He
claims that the Governments of thc
United States and Qreut Britain arc
ignorant of what hos happened in Cuba,
in consequence of the facility with which
the Spaniards can disseminate false news.
DISSENSIONS IN SPAIN.-Madrid is now
in n condition of chronic ferment over
the troublesome vacancy at the Escurial.
Some new sensatiou succeeds another
daily, and the popular excitement is kept
ut fever lieut. The latest sensation is
the return of Mpntpcusier to thc capi?
tal, and his quiet resumption of his
rights as a Spanish citizen. Gen. Prim
has endeavored to allay tho agitation by
making the public statement in the
Cortes that he is opposed to Mont pen
sier for King, and that all tho ministry,
with the exception of Admiral Topete,
are of his turn of mind. This has ruf?
fled the diguity of tho Admiral. Ho has
tendered his resignation, and his parti?
sans aro furious against tho Spanish
Premier. Hence, "another ministerial
liaron Nathaniel Rothschild, a dis?
tinguished member of tho famous family
of wealthy bankers, died in Paris on
February 19. He was the third eon of
Baron Nathan Meyer Rothschild, and
was born in 1812, and in 1842 married his
cousin, Charlotte, daughter of Baron Jas.
Rothschild. Baron James, who died not
long ago, was famous for his immense
wealth, but Baron Nathaniel, it is stated,
was a man of greater mark and rarer
powers. For many years bo was blind,
and recently becatno totally paralyzed.
A Foui. MURDER.-On Friday, tho 26th
nit., an inquest was held by Coroner J.
H. Gallmau, upon tho body of Rederick
Gist, an aged oolored mau, about eight,
miles West of Union C. H., who had
been killed by another colored man, by
tit? nnmfl o? Bob Woodruff. It appeared
that a difficulty had occurred between
the two some weeks before, at a corn
shucking or a dance, and that Bob thou
threatened Redcrick. 8iuce then he has
frequently made tho samo threat, und on
the night of tho 25th, he, in company
with others, met Rederick and got into
a fight which resulted in tho death of
thc latter. Bob immediately left, and
has not boen heard of since, although
diligent search has been niado by tho
sheriff and others for bim.

The Atlantic cabio, on Saturday, re?
ported tho arrival at Liverpool of the
first cargo of Bombay cotton through
tho Suez Ca?.al, and if this revolution of
trade in tho East be followed up, it will
place the Cast India crop in competition
with tho American, in England, nearly
two months earlier than heretofore.

DnuoroT.is, ALA., March 8, 1870.
MB. EDITOR: I said in my font, that
labor wah scares in ibis section. It ia
not so much the scarcity of muscle, aa it
ia the inability to uso that muscio. Idle
and unemployed negroes are supera?
bundant, but they do not hire and will
not work. Amongst these orea tu res are
often seen white ?nen, formerly consi?
dered high-toned gentlemen, passing
whispering to this one, then to that one,
and proffering by all manner of verbal
inducements to compensate the freed?
man, if he will only go to work for him.
No candidate at the hustings ever la?
bored more assiduously to secare bis
election, than do these labor-hunters to
procuro "hands" for the present orop.
Such Tile, dirty electioneering I have
never seen. Snoh "stooping to conqoer,"
literally, no refined gentleman could ever
resort to. Infinitely wonld I prefer to
let my lands lay fallow, and with my own
muscle and energy earn a frugal living
for my family.
Some planters in this section spend the
net earnings of a single crop to secare
labor. Agents are sent by them to all
parts of the Eastern States to get labor.
I saw one man returning from Virginia
with 115 hands, with their accompany?
ing families, of perhaps twice as many
more souls. Another had eighty able
bodied men, from North Carolina. If
such importation continues for five
years, the Atlantic-Sooth will be depleted
of negroes, and tho valley of the Missis?
sippi will bo virtually Africanized. In
the meantime, Virgioia, North and
South Carolina, should energetically
strive to supply this deficiency of labor
by immigration from abroad, and the re?
sult will be an appreciation of real estate
in the old States, and consequent thrift
and agricultural prosperity. Bot what
will be tho effect upon these South?
western States, if the few millions of ne?
groes now iu the South be collected into
one-half the area they now partially
occupy? Will the alluvial lands of the
West be enhanced in value? Will the
cotton crop of the Mississippi valley be
increased? Will the whites of that sec?
tion become richer, more prosperous and
happy? Will civilization be benefitted
or advanced? To my mind, there is but
a single answer to these questions. The
emphatic "No," answers them all.
Whenever negroes mutiply, labor is less
efficient. When labor is uncontrolable,
agricultural success is retarded. When?
ever, in alluvial lands, planting "doesn't
I pay," capital will not invest, Ac. It ap?
pears to me suicidal for the planters of
the South-west to encourage thu herding
of the idle negro in their midst. Far
better for them and tho whole South,
that this doomed race should be scattered,
that they may the sooner, like shallow
water, be dissipated from tho earth.
"Go, multiply and replenish the earth,"
is a command the negro is not fulfilling,
and obliteration will be tho inevitable
cons?quence of disobedience.
The sturdy pioneer of fifty years ago
had to endure hardships aud confront
dangers that inured him to recklessness,
which succeeding times inherited in
these parts, and hence, that disregard for
human Ufo that existed in the West so
proverbially a few years ago. Indeed,
the present is not entirely destitute of
tins inheritance. Steamboat and rail?
road accidents are almost as common as
they were years ago. Within a week,
I've seen announcements of three s tea ni
boaf disasters, and two railroad catas?
trophes; in one of the latter, sixteen
lives wore lost and fifty persons were
wounded, and this, too, by throwing a
train of cars from a lofty trestle, which
hud been officially reported for somo
weeks as unsafe. This occurred in Mis?
sissippi, and if the above statement,
which I received from one of the wound?
ed, be truo, what penalty should be in?
dicted upon tho officials of that road?
Steamboat transportation is speedily
becoming a seoond class means of carry?
ing produce to market on these Western
rivers. One boat does not pass where
probably three or four grunted by before
the war. High-pressure river boats make
a doleful sound, almost like the belch of
the railroad eugine. The products of
I the country are not so largo, is one
cause, and another more material one, is
the projection of railroads. Nothing
but a saving of time, enables the rail?
road to HU pe reed e the steamboat, for the
latter is by far tho cheaper transporta?
tion nntil the item of time is brought to
bear upon it; and in theso days of pro?
gressive utilization, "time is money." A
railroad train, costing much moro than a
steamboat, will carry, on an average,
about eighty tous of freight from one
point to another, while the steamer, at
much less cost, but in a louger time, will
t ran-?i iori between tho same points at
least 250 tons. The windings of the
stream cost money, because thoy con
sumo time. From Benton to Selma is,
by railroad, twelve miles; by boot, it is
over forty miles. From Beuton to Mont?
gomery is thirty-eight miles; by boat, it
is over 100 miles.
Before tho war, ono very interesting
feature of this country to tho traveler,
was thc number of artesian wells evory
where to bo seen. One of these wells in
Selma produced a stream which was suf?
ficiently utilized to mal.o it asourcooi
moonie to tho city or private parties.
Visiting that wei), rccontly, I found but
a small insignificant slrenin, of no prac?
tical valuo whatever. And several others,
that once were apparently never-failing
streams, have completely dried up.
Considerable corn has already bceu
planted in this section, and every possi?
ble effort made to produce a big colton
crop. What will be tho result, time
alone can tell. I have been astonished
at tho quantity of cotton yet seen in thc
Ourdcns are beginning to look green,
and tho earlier vegetables occasionally
eeen. Tho late cold snap aeriouslv
damaged tho fruit crop. Thus fur, Marci
has boen exceedingly wet, and returded
tho planters' work. Health of the coun
try generally good. Menegiiis prcralsat

TnE FUTURE OF COLUMBIA.-Wo can?
not but think that our city has a bright
future. Certain are we, that if the era
of prosperity shall, by our earnest efforts
and God's favor, dawn upon the State
and the South, Columbia must largely
shore in this prosperity. This city pos?
sesses many advantages and not a few
attractions. Its beauty, its climate, and
its health make it most desirable fot
residence, whilst its central location, its
water power and its converging railroads,
make it a good business point. Further?
more, we have a municipal government
worthy of public confidence, composed
of discreet and responsible citizens, in?
terested in the welfare of the city and
earnestly seeking, by economical manage
ment, to improve the finances, ard at th<
same time to improve the city. The ci h
taxes have been reduced as low as possi
ble; the city expenses have been as mud
curtailed as possible, and there are as fev
salaried officers as possible. In fine, w<
are satisfied from our observations
without deriving our impressions fron
any one connected with the city govern
ment, that our City Council have dis
charged their duties with an eye singh
to tho interests of tho city, and deserv?
the hearty well-doue of the people. Th<
