Tlio .?l?on-Politlcal?' la SoulU Carolina?
Tbt Late Convention.
The Nation, a radical paper, saya:
Moro encouraging ia the non-political
South Carolina news, which, indeed, ia a
great deal better than most persons in
this Bootion of tho country have been
hoping for, and is absolutely good. It
is Gorpioing, for example, to loam that
one small association working in New
bony District, a fine country, with a
beautiful climate, and lying in the mid?
dle region-between tue sand and the
hills-alone 'has introduced almost 500
European immigrants, Swedes wo take
them, jp be, for the gentleman who gave
tho account of them went on to say,
that. "if you give a Swedish laborer n
peck of meal and three pounds of bacon
(a week) you may expect him to taber?
nacle with yon only for a night;" and he
added something to the effect that the
Swede is a free man, who comes to this
country to better his condition, and not
to be e. serf, and who must be treated
accordingly. These remarks were made
in a convention whioh sat for several
-daya in Charleston, and included delo?
ngates from Georgia as well us from all
parts of South Carolina. Looking over
tho report of the proceedings, we noted
an entire absence of the spirit but re?
cently pervading the South Carolinian
mind-the spirit which demands, not
-immigrants who desire to better them
-selves, bat a servile peasantry. It ap?
pears as if there were now a genuino
wish to foster the sort of immigration
from: abroad? and from the North and
East, whioh has built up tho States of
the West and made them tho wonder of
the world; and an elaborate plan to
accomplish the desired result was sub?
mitted to the convention, and, after in?
telligent debate, adopted. The South
waa always ready enough to hold cou voli?
tions, agricultural and other, and it is
hard, when we read the Charleston reso?
lutions, not to think of the gentlemen
who used regularly to meet and resol vo
that Norfolk, Virginia, waa designed by
Odd to be the greatest sea-port on thia
oontinent; but still the resolutions be?
fore ns have a very busitiess-like and
hopeful look. In brief, this is the gene?
ral Boheme: Landholders and other capi?
talists are to subscribo land, or money
with which to buy land, and thia is tobe
divided into farma, of whioh every other
one is to be given to any respectable and
healthy man who will occupy it and im?
prove it, holding it at the end of ten
years in fee simple, and, until tho ten
years' term expires, under tho sole con?
dition that he ahall not abandon it, but
shall cultivate it Alternate sections the
association is to hold. Four freight and
emigrant steamers are to be built, and
every means is to be tried to induce emi?
grants from Europe, whether bound for
South Carolina or for Oregon, to make
the journey eta Charleston-a route
alleged to be cheaper than any other now
in existence. Chinese laborers-of
whom, as "ootton-hands," glowing ac?
counts were given-are to be called into
the rioe districts. The erection of cot?
ton mills is to be encouraged, and
figures were read, which seem reasona?
ble, tending to show that a manufacturer
who should barely pay expenses in run?
ning twenty frames in New Englaud,
could make $15,000 a year by running
them in Georgia. An instance waa given
of a manufacturer who actually bad dono
both these things BO lately aa last year.
Our apace forbids our giving further
details of the projected plan, but, as is
said above, it looks hopeful.

A "REPUBLICAN" VIEW.-The Nation
says, referring to tho political condition
of South Carolina:
"Nothing ia surer than that tho rescuo
of South Carolina from ber present rulers

pecially Republicana-should pray with

as it were, to weloome the earnest pupil

theae ideas still more ; we might give
them in the chaste and beautiful language
of the orator himself ; but we do not
deem it necessary at present to do more
than call attention to the subject. Wo
shall allude to it again, and often ; for
we believe that upon thia grand principle
depends, in a very great measure the
prosperity and grandeur of not only the

To secure those, let us work, earnestly,

An unsuccessful' attempt waa made in
New Orleans on Monday to introduce

prevailed, and the police were called to

THE NEW MODE OF VOTING.-Tho" sys?
tem of free, or cumulative voting has
been submitted to the people by the Il?
linois Convention, in such a mnnner,
that, if adopted, the members of the
Lower House of the Legislature will
hereafter be elected upon this plan.
Each Legislative District will eleot one
Senator and three Representatives. Un?
der the system now submitted, voters are
permitted, in voting for the Representa?
tives, to cast one vote each for the three,
ouo and a half votes each for two, or
three votes for one. It is assumed that
tho two political parties will, under this
provision, oach nominate only tho num?
ber of candidates its votes will enable it
to elect, leaving the opposing party to
nominate the number of candidates its
votes will elect. Thus, if a district has
9,000 votes, of which 2,300 are Demo?
cratic and 6,700 are Republican, in elect?
ing three members, tbe 2,300 votes, if
concentrated upon one man, aro sure to
elect him because the 0,700 votes, divid?
ed among three candidates, will give
them only 2,233 votes each. To elect
ono minority candidate among three,
therefore, it is only necessary that the
minority party shall have barely more
than a fourth of the total voto. If, how?
ever, the minority party is grasping, and
attempts to elect two candidates out of
three, it is liable to lose its Representa?
tives altogether. For instance, if tho
Republicans have 5,500 votes, and the
Democrats 3,500 out of the 9,000, the
Republican vote, divided among three
candidates, will give them 1,833 votes
each, while the Democratic vote, divided
between two, will give them only 1,750
eaob, and Republicans, exclusively, will
bo elected. At the same time, it is as
dangerous for the majority party to grasp
moro than they are entitled to, as for tho
minority. If, for instance, out of a total
vote of 9,000, tho Democrats have 5,350,
and tho Republicans 3,050, if tho Demo?
crats should attempt to elect threo can?
didates, their votes, divided among three,
would give them only 1,783 each, while
tho Republican vote, divided between
two, would give them 1,825 each, and
thus tho Republicans, though iu u mi?
nority of tho popular vote, would get
two out of tho threo members.
QUEUY.-A correspondent of the Co?
lumbia PHOENIX, over the signature of
"A Native," regrets the notice which ap?
peared ia our columns last week, con?
cerning the railroad excursionists. We
would be glad to know the exact Hue or
sentence that has given umbrage, confin?
ing the question to what we said con?
cerning tho railroad officials? As to the
politicians, wo can readily understand
that our remarks were not entirely ac?
ceptable; but as tho new officers of the
road were in company with the aforesaid
greedy place-seekers, it was manifestly
proper to spoak of both iu the same ar?
ticle. We wish to treat every person
"with respect aud civility," irrespective
of "policy or interest," but some mon
forfeit all claim to either by their own
conduct. Hence, we refer occasionally
to certain politicians with a savor of
contempt, and oft-times ridicule.
As to the new officors of tho Green?
ville Railroad, wo are profoundly igno?
rant in regavd to their "education,
mouey and influence," and on more thau
ouo occasion have expressed our want
of information concerning them. But
wo are willing to prove them by their
uctious, and if they are earnestly
engaged in promoting the material
prospority of this sectiou, uone will
yield moro readily a due meed of praise
than this journal. We shall wait for
substantial facts and progressive indica?
tions. As we do not oppose, but hearti?
ly endorse, every inllux of capital and
enterprise, these geutlemon cnn a fiord to
undergo a short probation, boforo we
rush at them with "cordiality." At
least, such is our way of thinking, and
wo are sorry that it does not please "A

DEATH FROM LOOK-J AW.-The remains
of Mr. John Blackburn, whoso death re?
sulted from rather singular circum?
stances, were interred last Sunday, at
Trenton, N. J. Some ten days ago, ho
accidentally chopped off the joint of his
finger with au axe, while in tho not of
splitting some wood. Ou immediately
replacing the disjointed member, it clung
fast iu its proper place, the coagulated
blood holding it attached. Having tied
it up in a pieco of li neu, he resumed his
work, and foolishly imagined that nature
would soon effect a perfect cure. Toward
thc close of last week, ho felt a pain in
his nuder jaw, and a physician being
consulted, the symptoms were pronounc?
ed very dangerous. His finger had be?
come moro swollen, and inflammation
had set in, making further amputation
necessary. His condition became gra?
dually worse, and he died on Friday

An UndcrtaJtcr'* Wedding.
There ie a "melancholy interoet" ia
little affair that actually oodnrrod not
a.thousand miles from Boston, a short
?me sine*. A well-known olergyman re?
ceived one morning an imperative sum
mono to be lin attendance' to. perform
?4the ceremony" at the residence of an
equally well Known undertaker in the
evening. He went, accordingly, sup
posing, of course, that he was to accom?
pany the man of grief to a house of
mourning, but waa agreeably disappoint?
ed on finding the house (over the shop)
brilliantly lighted and filled with guests,
whom tho undertaker proceeded to in?
troduce, as follows:
"This is my intended wife, sir, Miss
Grape. I shall marry her to night, if
"Certainly," replied the olergyman,
somewhat amnsed; "and these are yonr
friends to witness the ceremony?" look
ing ronnd at the orowded apartment.
"O, yes, you know many of them
allow me-this is Mr. Bones, sexton of
St. Charles Church."
Mr. Bonos rose solemnly, and houved
a hundred dollar funeral sigh us he
bowed to tho minister.
"Mr. Mould, sexton of tho brick
Mould, who had a low cut-whito vest,
a large glassy white shirt bosom and
collar, a palo face and sunken eyes,
which gave him the appearance of being
"laid out," replied to tho clergyman's
greeting with the usual sad shake of the
head he had practiced at funerals the
past twenty years.
"This," said the host, as the indivi?
dual approached on tip tip-toe, with
down-cust gaze, as if afraid of disturbing
the silence of n grief-stricken family
sitting in tho front parlor at a funeral,
"this is Mr. Bluck, the undertaker; I
believe you've met before." Black
bowed, and inclined his head sidoways,
as if he expected the minister to whisper
some directions to him before proceed?
ing with tho service.
"Allow mo to make you acquaiuted
with Mr. Stone, the sculptor." Stone
griped the minister's hand ns he would
a mallet; he was proprietor of Stone's
Monumental Works. Then followed in?
troductions to tho superintendents of
two cemeteries, a pinto engraver, and
others more or less connected with the
grim business of the host, who after
finishing introductions, aunounced him?
self ready for tho marriage ceremony.
"You don't mind standing here and
using this black walnut case for a table,
do you?" said the bridegroom; it was too
heavy to move, besides it's full of shrouds
and caps that wo don't want to tumble."
The minister acquiesced, and the twain
were duly united, after which, cake, wino
and conversation pervaded the company.
The clergy mau congratulated the bride?
groom on bia bride. "Yes," replied the
happy man, "abo's been my house?
keeper some time-uico woman-ain't
afraid of dead folks."
"Ah, indeed," said the clergyman,
getting a little chilly down along his
backbone in spito of himself, and wish?
ing to chungo tho subject, he remarked:
"Any nowa to-day, Mr. Tressells?"
"News.no-that is, yeal You remem?

drowned himself from a forrv boat lost
"Well, they found him this morning
in ten feet of water, .iud paving stones
in bis pockets."
"Yes!-We've ff ot him up stairs, if
you'd like to see him!"
Not knowing what might como next,
tho clergyman thought best to take bia
departure, which he did with a grave
demeanor suited to tho ocoasiou.
HADN'T JINED 'EM YET.-A rather ver?
dant young mau, whoso features exhi?
bited every aympton of having been
tinged with the emerald, quito recently
entered a jewelry store in New York, and
gazing earnestly iuto the show-case, re?
"You've got a heap of mighty pretty
breast-pins thar, mister; what monght ye
tax for 'em?"
"What sort of a piu would you like to
look at?" inquired the merchant.
"Well, dunno!" said the visitor, point?
ing to a plain Maaonio pic, (the compass
and square,) "how much is that yere?"
"Five dollars only, air," was the reply.
"It's a very fine pin, eighteen-curut
"You haven't got ary ono with a little
gold hand-saw laid across it, hov you?"
interrupted tho would-be purchaser.
"I bol i eve not, sir," said the merchant.
"Wish ver had, it would suit mo ex?
actly. I'm just out of my time, and
gwine to set up ns carpenter and j'iner,
and I thought I'd like some sort of a
sign to wear about mn, so folks would
have au idee who I was. What do yo
tax for that ar pin you've got yer hand
"Seven dollars," said tho merchant,
producing a compass and square sur?
rounding the letter G.
"Seven dollars, eh!" said the youth,
"I'll take it-sorry yer didn't have the
hand-saw, though. But I reoon every?
body will understand it. Tho compass

TURPENTINE STILL BURNED.-We leora
that a turpentine still belonging to Capt.
J. F. Carraway, at Williams' landing, on
Black Mingo Creek, was destroyed by
firo on Friday night last, being a loss to
tho owner of about 8600. The fire is
supposed to have been the work of an

/ FASHIONS--SOMETHING WE SHOULD
LAUGH AT IP SEEN IN AFRICA.-We might
have thought iVAb/tgrtl^f Dr, j Living?
stone had written, throe jean ago, that
ho had found in Africa a tr ibo, tho wo
mon of which drees BB follows: "Tho
Dayous are beautiful women, with ex?
quisite complexion and fine forms, and
they dress in the most perfect taste.
They wear short dresses, reaching the
ankles. Upon the forehead is perched a
small hat, the front of which rests upon
the nose. They take large bags of hair
and wool, saturate them with butter and
hang them on tbo hack of the head,
covering the neck. Upon the small of
the back they, tie a bunch of cotton
cloth, colored and cut into strips. Tboir
shoes are beauties, coming to a poiut at
the toe and having the long and sharp
pointed heel placed under the middle of
tbe foot. This makes the foot very small
iu appearance, but tho wearer would tip
over forward but for tho bags on the
head and back. Each woman, when she
goes out, carries a large plantain leaf to
keep off the sun, whioh she holds by the
stem between the thumb aud fore-finger,
crooking her elbow up from her body nt
an angle of ninety. Tho effect is more
beautiful than you eau imagiue. Tho
gait of the women is particularly ad?
mired. Tho heavy ones have difficulty
in keeping their balance, but the light
ones pick their way ulong ns prettily as
heus walk over hot ashes. Young girls
go barefooted. For some years after
they are of age to put on their shoes,
they suffer with lameness und sore feet
-after that their feet beoome perma?
nently deformod, and they have no moro
pain. Walking is, however, not u favorite
practice with them, and running is im?
possible. The Government of the Da
you's is really democratic, the ruler being
chosen annually by vote of all tho peo?
ple; yet it is Baid the women do not waut
to vote. All they caro for is plenty of
hair aud little shoes. Tho men aro sat?
isfied with this division, nud the State is
quito prosperous, though tho society is
ruthor vulgar aud unintellectual."
DISCOVERY OF THE ORIGINAL DOCU?
MENTS FOR THE BOOKS OF GGNESIS.-Mr.
Charles Welford, in his last Loudon lot?
ter to the Book Buyer, published in New
York, by Scribner, Welford & Co., gives
an account of the remarkable announce?
ment just made by Sir Henry Rawlinson
before the Asiatic Society. It is not
merely that this eminent Orieu tal scholar
claims to have discovered the original
records from which the book of Genesis
was composed, but he illustrates his po?
sition by details of tho most striking
kind. Ho himself said:
"Tho progress now reached iu tho col?
lection and arrangement of the Nineveh
inscribed fragments, made it beyond a
doubt that they would bo able to derive
tho whole of the history given in the
book of Genesis, from tho time of Abra?
ham, from tho original documents; and
it was not too much to expect that almost
tho same facts and descriptions would bo
found in the Bible. Ho hoped very soon
to have ready n paper ou the Garden of
Eden, (Paradise,) in which ho would 6how
that was tho natural name of Babylon.
The river bore tho same namo, and thc
Babylonian documents gavo au exact
geographical account of the Garden ol
Eden. The flood and tho Tower of Ba?
bel would bo found to bo most amply il?
lustrated in Babylonian documents."
NEW SYSTEM OF TBIIEOBAIZ-MONE\
ORDERS.-From the Albany Evening
Journal, of the 16th instant, wo get thc
The Western Union Telegraph Com?
pany has, we notice, inaugurated a sys?
tem of telegragh money orders, which
promises to be of great benefit to thc
business community. In its essential
features it is similar to the system in
vogue in tho Post Office Department,
with the difference that payments can
bo made in distant places nearly as
quickly as if the parties were in tho same
room. The plan is very simple-a per?
son desiring to pay an amouut of money
to a party in another place deposits the
sum in the office whero he resides. The
office receiving the money authorizes
tho office from which it is to be paid to
pay tho amount deposited and charge to
tho office giviug the authorization, exact?
ing a morely nominal fee for the service.
Tho system has only just been put in
operation, aud it fills so important a
want in the commercial community, that
it will undoubtedly become popular.
MANUFACTURE OF COTTON AT THE
SOUTH.-Among the many ablo reports
to the Immigration Convention, lately
hold in Charleston, there is not ona of
greater importance to our people than
the following, presented by Col. J. B.
Palmer, ono of the owners and the mana?
ger of the Saluda Cotton Factory, near
Columbia. As soon as we can obtain the
proper information, it is our intention to
givo descriptions and locations of tho
water powers so abundant in Union
County, and, if possible, iuduco tho for?
mation of Companies to erect Factories
upon them. We hope each ono of our
subscribers will attentively and studi?
ously read Col. Palmer's able and reliable
report. We believe there could bo
cuough stock raised in this County to
establish one or two Factories that would
be profitable to the Stockholders and
materially benefit the State at large.
