Sunday Morning, May 29,1870.
Tbs Proposition of Slr. Aigner-Immi?
Mr. Hans Aigner, a Prussian, who bas
been for one aud-a-half years in South
Carolina, proposes to fill orders for "set?
tlors, laborers and mechanics," bot woe u
October 1, 1870, and the 1st January,
1871. Mr. Aigner states that he has
made tho necessary arrangements in
Germany, France, Poland and Galicia,
and that in these countries they are "well
recommended farm hands," who desire
next fall to immigrate to thU State, under
his direction. Ho claims to have in Ga?
licia; In particular, an extensivo acquaint?
ance-and the assistance of influential
personages.. Ho calls upon nil decirous
of obtaining laborers, to send their or?
ders to him at Georgetown, care of l)r.
A. M. Forster. Communicate with him
aud he will give his terms. Dr. A. M.
Forster, a well-known citizen of George?
town, and a member of tho Executive
Committee of tho State Agricultural and
Mechanical Society, strongly endorses
tbeVolaimjt. of Mr. Aigner to the confi?
dence of the public. He says that Mr.
Aigner is a very intelligent Prussian,
"who is in correspondence, on the subject
of immigration, with sevorul persons iu
Prussia-ono of them, Priuce von Blu
ober-grand-son of tho old Waterloo
General of that name. In fine, Dr.
Forster expresses his confidence in Mr.
Aigner's ability to perform all ho pro?
We placo tho matter before the public.
Well Said-Thu Traill Spoken.
The Now York Ihnes, which is dis?
posed to toko a rose-colored view of
things, some time since argued that tho
South ought to be grateful to Congress
for ita manifold blessings conferred upon
this section, and thus the Times seeks to
magnify the policy of its party at the
expenso of the South. Tho Courier
Journal, a Kentucky paper, takes direct
issue with the Times and exposes its falla?
cious assumptions. Tho Journal holds
and maintains with irresistible force that
whatever of prosperity the South has
enjoyed has been secured, "not becauso
ot reconstruction, but in spite of it." It
alludes to the ways and methods of re?
construction, to the outrages, errors and
wrongs that it employed, and remarks:
"Yet, in spito of all this, the people
have prospered. Everything that relates
to tho government of the South is at the
lowest. Everything the party in power
could touch has dwindled. Everything
that exists in the shape of a corporation,
or publio fund, or an office, is away down
below zero. But that which belongs to
individuals, personal affairs, privato en?
terprises, crops and business, which the
Government hus not boen ablo to reach,
flourishes. Why? Because tho people
are hard-working, honest and enterpris?
ing. Because, iu spito of taxes, heavily
laid ou and rigorously collected, in spito
of an expensive administration, in spito
of official pillage, in spite of uncertainty,
interference, and outside pressure, they
have worked. L ito and early, they have
worked. Heart-sore and uneasy of mind,
they have worked. Against all tho ele?
ments, physical and moral, they have
worked unceasingly and hopofully, and
God, not radicalism, hus blessed them
and tho blessing comos in its own proper
apparel and not disguised ns a carpet?
bagger, a sat raj), and a ruffian. In spito
of pers?cution, tho South has prospered.
lu spite of proscription, thc good men
of the South to-day stand where they
have always stood, and where integrity
and intellect have a right to stand and
are always sure to stand, at the head of
"Even now tho people of the South
appeal to the people of tho North to rid
them of foreign interforenco and to leavo
them to that local self-government upon
which our republican system is founded.
All thc issues growing out of tho war aro
settled. Questions of war debts, of se?
cession, of suffrage), all are settled. We
need to have dono with partisan ha?
ranguing and turn ourselves to tho prac?
tical business of the country. Wc need
to have done with bureaus, martial law
and speechifying. Wo need a cessation
of loyal cant and bellicose howling of
every description. But wo cannot reach
this upland of peace so long as such
leaders as Cameron, Butler aud Drake
are permitted to niako their turbulence,
falsehood and corruption tho otto for na?
tional legislation and popular following.
"The Now York Times affects a mode?
ration which it fails to carry out. Instead
of congratulating tho South on its mis?
fortunes, aud flattering the policy of
loaders it pretends to despise, it had bet?
ter trim its lamp and look a little further,
or oise tuend both its porceptiou and its
counsel. As tho matter stands, it [dosses
over a repulsivo picturo with ii thin coat
of varnish, which serves only to bring
out its disagreeable features the more
palpably. Tho South is indeed pros?
perous, but it owes its prosperity tn itself
and to God Almighty, who always favors
tho strong arm and tho steady plow-share,
tho honest heart, tho sober understand?
ing and tho constant purpose."
Sirs. Josephine Simpson, of Toledo, n
California widow, is in tho lumber busi?
ness, and not only tends to her own buy?

till her contracts aro strictly fulfilled, and
then wants cash down.
A Good AVltneM-Read the Ttillmonr.
Tbo New York Nation, reviewing the
situation in tbo Booth, holds that there
is no doubt but tho interests of civiliza?
tion and of good government in this
quarter are suffering deeply, and "may
suffer irretrievably, if the present regime
be protracted much longer." The Na?
tion, which, bo it understood, is a Repub
can journal of wide influence, says:
"Very recently, business men of tho
highest character, both from this city
nud from Boston, havo been examining
tbe state of things there with reference
to investments, both for themselves and
their friends, and of course ono of tho
very first things to which their attention
was turned was tho government, for go?
vernment means taxation, and on tbe
manner and amount and application of
taxation depend the rate of profits, tho
prospects of immigration, and the pro?
bability of internal improvements. No
man will willingly invest much capital in
a Stato whoso revenues be bas reason to
beliove will be sqnnndcreil, or credit de?
stroyed, or whose legislation cannot be
depended on for a reasonable degree of
uniformity and houesty. Now tho re?
ports of these gentlemen-and tho two
wo havo in our eye have been ardent Re?
publicans and supporters of tho recon?
struction policy of Oongross, and do not
beliove any othor policy was possible or
desirable-desoribe thiugs as hoing near?
ly ns bad ns bad can bo. Tho effect on
the freodman of the spectaclo of largo
bodies of his fellows in a state of tho
grossest ignorance pnt suddenly in pos?
session of tho ' government of groat,
civilized and wealthy communities is, of
course, as demoralizing ns tho sudden
discovery of a parcel of diamonds, and
just as likely to turn his mind away
from steady industry, and to destroy his
faith in tho political value of kuwledge.
But this is not tho worst of it. Their
management of the State funds has boen
such, and is such, as to endanger Ameri?
can credit everywhere, to frighten away
capital, and make general bankruptcy at
soino not very distant day by no means
improbable. Moreover, no society was
ever long subjected to such a regime
without suffering in its very vitals, with?
out finding the stock of honor, truth,
decency and patriotism, on which it has
to draw every now and then to carry it
through exciting times, greatly and per?
haps fataliy diminished.
"Tho remedy for all this is to pass an
act of genoral amnesty, and leave every
community to its natural action. Let
whatever there is of intelligence in it re
sumo its natural weight. It is as much
the interest of tho negro ns of tho white
man-indcod, far moro the interest of
the negro than of tho white mau-that tho
States should he well governed, and
most of tho political talont and expe?
rience is in the hands of white men who
aro either disfranchised themselves, or so
disgusted by tho disfranchisement of
their friends, that they will take no part
at present in political nffairs. No closing
of tho reconstruction process will be safe
or real which does not give them their
natural influence on tho Government;
artificial influence they have lost forever;
but of tho other it is an offence against
civilization to deprivo them."
OTHER FEATURES.-Tho new Constitution

I proposed, tho New York World says:
Tho new Constitution of Illinois,
which is to bo submitted to tho popular
voto on tho 2d of July next, contains
some wholesome provisions, but is in
nothing moro excellent than in its strin?
gent limitations of legislative power.
So fur from countenancing the modern
heresy that legislation should be on tho
parliamentary order-that is to say, vir?
tually limitless-it hedges in tho law?
making body with restrictions of unusual
severity, and reiterates in the most un?
mistakable manner tho old nnd correct
doctrino of strict construction and lim?
ited powers. Special legislation-that
fruitful source of corruption and main?
stay of tho lobby-is almost entirely in?
hibited by a requirement that where a
general law eau bo made applicable, no
special law shall be enacted; a vote of
two-thirds of all elected to each House,
instead of a haro majority as now, is re?
quired to override a veto; and each ruotn
ber is required, as a condition precedeut
to his scat, to tako a stringent oath, be
foro ono of tho higher judges, in tho hall
of the Houso to which ho is elected, that
he has not bribed any vote at his elec?
tion, nnd neither has received uor will
receive any money or other valuable
thing for any vote or other official act.
Thu authority of tho Legislature to add
to tho Stato debt, savo for war purposes,
is limited to ?250,000; norean that body
I lix its own pay or allowances; nor is thc
i credit of tho Stato to bo by it loaned 01
extended in any way whatsoever to any
corporation or individual; nor shall it
exceed tbo appropriation estimates which
it is made thu duty of tho Governor tc
send in, unless by a vote of two-thirds ol
( all tho members elected to each House.
' To tho Governor is given the power tc
remove for incompetency or malfeasance
tho officers appointed by him and con?
I firmed by the Senate, without let or bin
drnuco from the Legislature; and nc
money shall bo appropriated by any pri?
vate law. Those main provisions-foi
there aro othor restrictive enactments
mako wild work with the parliamentary
theory of legislation, and can hardly fail
to render tho General Assembly of Uli
nols a model law-making body.

The following communication, from J.
D. Tradewell, Esq., City Attorney, was
read aud received us information :
Hon. John Alexander, Mayor-DEAI:
SIB: By tho 18th section of tho city
charter, found in 12 vol. Statutes at
Largo, pago 333, tho Mayor nnd Alder?
men of tho city of Columbia arc autho?
rized to establish and keep up public
scales, or scalo houses, with proper
weights and scales for weighing cotton
or other articles sold by weight in the
city. By tho 19th section, tue Mayor
and Aldermen are authorized to appoint
ono or moro public weighers, whose
duties may be prescribed by that body,
to which tho public weigher or weighers
are accountable, and so forth. Authority
is also given by that Act (section 19) to
assess as high as six cents on each bale
of cotton weighed, nnd a proportional
sum ou other articles, to bo paid by tho
B3* the 20th section of samo Act, (city
charter,) tho scales and weights thus
established are to be the standard to
which nil others in tho city shall con?
form, a departure from which subjects
tho person departing therefrom to lino
and imprisonment, iu the discretion of
thc Court, on conviction in tbo Court of
Sessions for Richland.
It is apparent to my mind, after looking
at these sections of the city charter, (Act
of 1851,) that to tho Mayor and Aldermen
of tho city of Columbia is confided the
fullest control of tho matter of weighing
cotton or any other articles sold by
weight within tho limits of tho city; and
that, therefore, tho ordinanco on that
subject of 19th January, 181)1), is legal,
and may be enforced against all violators
of it in the summary manner therein de?
signated. I nm, respectfully yours,

A living skeleton was carried to thc
poor house, yesterday. He was so re?
duced, from lack of food, as to bo uunblo
to walk without assistance.

arrangement will bo made between the

SUNDAY.-What a blessed day is Sun?
day to tho weary man who necessarily
catches but brief glimpses of home dur?
ing the foiling week; who is off in tho
morning while little eyes are still closed
in slumber, nor back at night till they
nre again sealed by sleep! What would
ho know of the very children for whom
ho toils, were it not for tho blessed
breathing respite of Sunday? What
honest working-man's child will ever for?
get this day, when, clean and neat, it is
his privilego to climb papa's knee, and
hnug about his nock, and tell him all thc
news, "which goes to mako up his narrow
littlo world?" "Narrow," did we say?
Wo recall the word, for it widens out
into the boundless ocean of eternity.
Sunday for tho working-man's children!
So would we have it-a day hallowed by
sweet, pure home influences; when thc
littlo band, quito complete, shall res!
from labor, and love shall write it dowL
tho blessed day of all the seven.
