' Our City Affaira.
Tho communication on "City Taxes,"
signed "Fellow-Citizens," which appear?
ed in our columns, yesterday, deserves
thc attention of all thoughtful and dis?
creet citizens. It is a matter of interest
to all classes of our people, that this city
be built np. It is the duty of tho City
Counoil, in every legitimate way, to for?
ward this work. It is to be hoped that
the members of the Counoil will have
the Rood sense to reoede from tho policy
that they seem disposed to inaugurate,
of heavy taxation. Nothing can more
effectually retard tho growth of tho city
than this. We need capital and settlers
here from abroad. We need the best
use and the most careful husbanding of
our resources. To our mind, the policy
of the oity is plain. It is to introduce
the utmost economy into the city admi?
nistration-to reduco the expenses of the
city aB far as'possible, and thus to make
the burdenR of taxution as light ss is
consistent with tho necessary expendi?
eres of the city government. A. liberal,
enlightened, economical, programme, on
the part of the city government, is es?
sential to the welfare ol the city. We
trust that there will be found in tho
Council an element strong enough to
carry out thin policy. It is tho duty of
the City Conncil to work for and not
against the interests of the citizens-to
build up and not tqbreak down-to save
and not to destroy.
We publish in another column, a me?
morial which was laid on tho members
desks, in the Legislature, yesterday,
against the passage of an objectionable
bill, now before them. The following
aro some of its provisions:
SEO. 6. That the Mayor and Aldermen
of the said city of Columbia are hereby
vested with all the power and authority
over the poor within tho city of Colum?
bia, which, by the law, now belong to
the County Commissioners of Richland
County over the poor of said County;
and for the purpose of raising funds to
provide for the support and comfort of
the said poor, the said Mayor and Alder?
men may assess and collect n poor tax
on the taxable property of the said city,
in the same manner as they assess and
collect taxes thereon for the support of
the city government: Provided, That
said tax shall not exceed per cent,
on the amount of taxes thereon paid to
the said city.
Seo. 9. That the ?aid Mayor and
Aldermen shall hereafter have power

for tuxatin by the said City Assessor; and
they are hereby, also, empowered to re?
quire all persons now engaged, or who

the oonduot of the same.

have power to elect their own School
Commissioner-removable at their plea?
sure-if, in their opinion, such officer

to pay the same out of tho school fund
which may como into their hands. They

the land, necessary to carry out the pro?
visions of this Act.
Hew Telegraph. l?l?ic-Southern anil At?
lantic Telegraph Company.
It is proposed to establish a new tele?
graphic liuo throughout tho South. This
enterprise is under tho auspices of tho
Southern and Atlantic Telegraph Com?
pany. This line has been extended South
to Richmond, Lynchburg, Petersburg
and Danville, and forty miles of tho line
from Columbia to Charlenton have been
finished. The enterprise is represented
by Mr. W. S. Morris, of Virginia, well
known as the ex-Prcsident of tho South?
ern Telegraph Company. We observe
that u number of business men and
banking honses in Charleston, Savan?
nah and Columbia havo taken stock in
tho new company. Mr. Morris is de?
sirous of presenting thc subject to this
community, and is prepared to show tho
advantages of the investment. ID the
Board of Directors, we observe that ten
ont of tho eighteen are Southern resi?
dents. Col. Childs, of this place, is a
Director. One of the leading banks of
thc city has subscribed liborully to tho
Stock. To all business men de&irous of
increasing telegraphic facilities and re?
ducing rates, this enterprise addressee
itself. Moreover, on general principles,
it may be said that the stock is a good
investment, ns telegraphic enterprises
are emphatically in accord with tho spirit
of the age.
Mit. EDITOR: Permit me to suggest,
that as Speaker Moses has become bel?
ligerent, that he bo sent to Union to
mise tho Stars and Stripes which be
lowered at Fort Sumter.
SrAnTANBUKG, January G, 1871.
Editor of the Phonix-DEAR SIR:
There is an article in the Daily Union,
of tho 1st, signed "Truth," which I
wish to notice. The writer of this
article is well known, though he seeks
to disguise himself under the signature
of an unsuspected virtue. The piece
bears unmistakable evidence of having
been writteu by a late disappointed
office-seeker; this is seen not only
in its .malignity, but also in its dic?
tum. I would want no better evi?
dence of the pedagogue thun the word
"kuklustic." This is tho ear that be?
trays tho uss nuder the lion's skin."
If thc devil is not shamed by this
"Truth," then there is no truth in pro?
verbs. Tho whole piece sounds so liko
fiction, that it seems almost absurd to
trent it seriously; nor would it bo sa
noticed, were it not that, like most ro?
mances, it is "founded ou fact." It. is
true, that Anthony Johnson wus mur?
dered, and that in u must brutal man?
ner; but out of this, "Truth" has woven a
thaory wonderful for its ingenuity. In
abusing our town paper, the Spartan, he
says any ono who hus been u close
observer of the inflammatory urticlcs
published in this sheet, and hus wi tnested
the fearful outrages and horrid tragedies
that have succeeded, cannot fail to tracu
in them the relation nf cause nnd effect.
How can you say so, "Truth," for if it
had been so, you would have tukeu
Johnson's placo loug ago? No publia
journal could have let your evil deeds
go unnoticed, and tho Spartan would
Eave deserved all you say of it, had it not
proscribed you. Mindful of its duty to
tho public, it would have directed its
shafts against you, and not against puor
Johnson, who was too ignorant to do
hann. If this had boen so, "Truth,"
yon never would havo turned Radical.
You would have remained a good Demo?
crat, and courted tho favor of that
bloody-minded journal. More Mian this,
you would not havo dared so openly to
betray its secret, and so expose it to the
ignorant public. The state of society,
as shown by "Truth." is certainly de?
plorable, but everybody does not seo
through tho sumo spectacles. Innocent
people, when they ore serenaded at night
by u party of young men, do not take to
the woods, aud then report society dis?
turbed by K. K.'s; but tho wicked fleo
tv lieu no man pursue. So "Truth" had
'more than one fact to start his narrative
on. In conclusion, he wauts to know
the remedy. To reach the remedy, we
nu ist kuow tho cause. The cause is
simply because tho law cannot bo en?
forced. But why cannot tho officers of
Ihe law enforce tho law? Becuuso tfiey
are not supported by tho people; aud
they are not supported by tho people
since they have not tho confidence of
tho people. There is not that sympathy,
that community of interest, existing be?
tween them that there should be. When
we are called upon by a set of irrespon?
sible men, mon without character for
honesty, men publicly convicted of
felony, a set of arrant knaves-when we
aro culled upon by these to enforce the
law, good people hesitate, and think
whether it is bettor to endure lawless?
ness, or bo led by theso irresponsible
thieves, they know not where.
Already, Spartanburg expresses har
coodemuution of theso aots of violence.
Already have her good citizens pledged
their support of law and order, and when
our rulers shall give us officers who are
mon of nerve and character, who have
the confidence of the people, then, and
I fear not till then, will these atrocious
crimes cease. SPARTA. \
