ALL COTIO?.- We, commend to I lie
careful perusal of our plauting friends
the following article from Thc Paper, a
Democratic sheet published in Pitts?
burg, Fa., now that tho season [or
"pitching" at tho new crop ia approach?
"A sufficient number of years havo
elapsed since tho conclusion nf hostili?
ties between the States of the North and
South to permit of a calm survey of the
causes which contributed to the result.
Tho conquerors were not made so by
reason of their superior bravery, nor, as
would first appear, from their numerical
superiority, although the latter aided
them very materially,' but because tho
North was a section of mechanics and
its adversary merely au agricultural re?
"It was nota coutcst of muscle against
mnscle, but of bruins and inventive ge?
nius in opposition to personal courage.
Tho South found a few staples so pro?
ductive of wealth that it confined itself
to the cultivai ion of these, und allowed
every othor interest to languish. Its
cities became only great warehouses for
the storage of cotton, sugar and tobacco,
and the pride of thc peoplo swelled iuto
undue proportions as they beheld the
shipping of tho world at their crowded
wharves, eager to carry off, even to the
uttermost ends of tho earth, the fruits
of their fertile fields. From this was
begotten the fallacious idea tl?at cotton
was king, and that his sceptre not only
swayed tho destinies of America, but
that it was not without forco on the other
side of the Atlantic. This was very flat?
tering to the vanity of a growing peoplo.
still young iu the family of States, and
was sufficient to dazzle their eyes with a
splendor altogether meretricious. The
domination of cotton should have been
n source of pride to every American.
That prido, however, should never have
oven remotely approached idolatry. The
fact that it did become so, no person
will deny, and to this we assign the sub?
sequent overthrow o? its worshippers.
"When tho'war broke out it found the
States of tho South rich in cotton, in
sugar, iu mon and iu money, with au en?
thusiasm amounting almost to insanity,
and a determination to achieve victory
by the prowess of their urrns. The
North went into the conflict irith un
earnestness as terrible, but. with every?
thing the South lacked. Wo had a di?
versified industry to back us; we lind
iron and coal and* steel for the manufac?
ture of arms aud munitions; we hail
corn and oats for the cavalry, wheat and
rye for the soldiers, and milla for thc
manufacture of colton and woolen fab?
rics with which to furnish raiment to om
men in tho field. The South hud uouc
of these. 'Tis true, there were iron
works in Virginia and in Mississippi, bul
the?o were crippled early in the war by
reason of tho blockado and mechanical
poverty of tho South. History furnishes
no iustanco whero 8,000,000 of people,
equally united and determined, have
been subjugated. Had thc South pur?
sued a wiser policy in the past; had il
encouraged a healthy immigration aud
fostered manufactures, it would huvt
been a more formidable antagonist, anti
doubtless would have protracted thc
strugglo indefinitely, even if wo admit
that under circumstances victory was it
its reach. The lesson wo deduce fron
tho failure of tho South, then, is that,
without a blending of industries, nc
State or country can ever nttaiu trill
greatness. When a couutry can live
within itself it is independent, und nul
until then. The peoplo of the South ur?
rapidly realizing this, and from ?di pnrd
wo hear of new manufacturing enter
prises. Georgia seems to have tho lea?
as yet, but Tennessee, with her rich uti
nerol deposits, is putting on tho tirmoi
of Vulcan and striding rapidly to tin
front; while Louisiana seems to havi
made up its mind to send us its cotton
in webs, instead of bales, ai formerly
Tho inechaoio is invited to go South ant
co-operate with tho planter. This in vi
tation is being hooded, too, and a ubini
of interests is beiug formed that wil
eventually give birth to great socio
changes thero, and which cannot fail tc
bo productivo of much good to tin
who lo country."
GIN HOCSE UUIINT.-Tho gin house c.
Dr. John A. Bni'ksdnlo, with about sevei
bales of cotton, and a large amount o
cotton Beed, was burnt on the afternooi
of Wednesday last. The lire ocourrei

Justice of this County, and candidate
for tho Legislature ut tue luto election,
wits shot and killed by parties unkuown,
at or near his house in thu neighborhood
of Pacolett Depot, on tho night of the
29th ult. We have learned nothiug of
tho particulars of this outrageous act
that excites even a suspicion us to who
were its perpetrators. But accounts wo
have heard, satisfy us that it wits u brutal
and outrageous murder, and nu doubt
the good citizens in that section will ex?
ert themselves in attempting to briug to
justice the guilty parties. We will give
the . report wo have had of tho afluir,
which .is briefly this: That three persons
went to tho bouse of Johnston and
made demonstrations of .a kind that
caused him to quit his house to lind pro?
tection in the woods, und when ho had
reached tho distance of a fow hundred
yards, he was shot by parties unkuown,
and his body foll in it branch, whnro it
was.found. Johnston's mother was in
thu house, and saw the party who is sup?
posed to have committed the murder,
but did not, recognize any one of them.
We have not learned that they were in
disguise, and wo have not heard Kn
Klux mentioned in cou unction with thu
affair. Wo learned from our informant
that Johnston had rendered himself very
impopular with several colored persous
in his neighborhood, hy octa of tyranny
and fraud towards them, while acting nfl
Trial Justice, by taking tho little pro?
i porty which they hud exempt by law, in
payment of his costs in uasos which he
had induced them to institute without
cause, and in various ways deceiving

We only mention those furls which wc
have learned to indicate the course ol
probabilities. At. this time wo have
learned nothiug that attaches this iou
deed to any ono. Efforts will he nindi
to detect the guilty parties, because out
law-abiding und peaceful citizens ?ire de
I ermined to put u stop to such occur

THE KILLING OE A. F. Dun ARD, Esij.
The community, on yesterday, wen
shocked to hear that this estimable
citizen had bcou shot and killed, on tin
public highway. It appears that Mr
Dubard left this city Thursday niter
noon, for his home-about fifteen mile
above Columbia. About six miles frou
thc city, his body was found-picrcct
through with several sings. The de?
ceased was robbed of his watch uni!
money, but tho bundles in his buggy
were left untouched. It is supposed
that be was instantly killed; his coat was
burnt with powder, proving that the
murderer stood very close when the
fatal shot was fired. Tho incentivo o?
tho nssussiu was, doubtless, money.
Mr. Dubard wus OH old and respected
citizeuof Richland, and highly esteemed
for his strong and reliable trails. Ho
was a leading member of tho Methodist
Dhurch, and in his neighborhood was
its main stay. A cruel deed deprived
[lim of bis life. But os a pious, God
baring old mau, it is to be presumed
that be waa riot unprepared for the
quick summons that caine to him. H?8
violent and ?ridden death will exoite
general and genuine sympathy. The
assassin is lmtyct known; but it is to bo
hoped that the ofliccrs of tho Jaw aud
the friends of tho dceased will uso every
proper means to fix upon the offender
the responsibility of bis atrocious crime
The marks of Hat feet were diBtiuctly
seen about tho body.
MOKE TROUBLE IN UNION.-Passengers
r.'port to us a renewal or continuation of
fie uufortuuato stat? of affairs in
Union. It appears that on Sunday last,
Captain Aleck Walker, Ibo colored cap
tiiu of militia, applied to tho parties
who had charge of tho gnus belonging to
tho militia, but his demand was refused,
and ho was subsequently arrested-as
stated in Wednesday's PlIC2Klx-~-charged
with tTjo killing of Mr. Mat. Stevens.
Fifteen o? his militia were also arrested.
On Wednesday evening, a party of
unknown horsemen went to the Sheriff
and peremptorily demanded the keys of
the jail; they wero givon up, and they
proceeded to the jail and took charge of
five of thc prisoners-Captain A. Walker,
Churner Ilerudon. Joe Van Lew, Andy
Thompson and Sylvanns Wright. The
next morning, tho bodies of Wulker and
Ilerudon were discovered in the road;
and it was afterwards found out that
Thompson and Wright were badly
wounded. We are further luformed that
Mr. Smith, (tho acting deputy,) who waa
wounded on Sunday last, died on Thurs?
day night. Tho teachings of bad men
are bringing forth terrible (roubles.
