Tlie Mission of tlio Laurena Committee.
From the tolegrapm published in our
columns on yesterday, it was Been thut
Messrs. W. D. Simpson, J. A. Leland
and lt. S. Goodgion, of Laurens, are on
a visit to Washington, to vindicate their
section of the State against the charges
that have been made against it They
have laid their side of the case before
the President. The high character of
these gentlemen will no doubt invest
their statements with doe consideration.
We think the people of Laurens have
done well to send this committee on. It
is due to Laurens and the whole State,
and due to truth, that all the circum?
stances connected with tho late troubles
in that Oounty should bo placed before
the country. Too often has it been the
case in tho South that the foulest slan?
ders and the basest misrepresentations
have been allowed to go uurobuked uud
uncorrected. In this era of the world,
when public opiuiou exercises such a
vast influence, it is a mutter of great im?
portance that men and commuuitics
should stund io their proper light before
the tribunal of the public. Truth should
always be Bet free to combat error, aod
if ft coin is spurious, let it be promptly
nailed down. Hence it is that wc are
pleased to find that both sides of tho
Laurens imbroglio will bo seen in Wash?
ington. Let this matter and .kindred
matters bo thoroughly sifted; let tho
cases be viewed in all their buuriugs;
and then "let justice bo done, though
the heavens fall." President Grant may
rest assured that tho gentlemen compos?
ing tho Laurens committee will, to the
best of their knowledge and belief, give
"the truth, tho whole truth, and nothing
but the truth."
SAD, VERY-TnE CONDITION OV TUE
SOUTH.-A Washington correspondent
states that "an officer of tho Uuitcd
States army, stationed hore, bas just re?
turned from a tour of investigation in
the South, in the service of tho War
Department, and reports a sad state of
affairs, especially in North Carolina."
Of course, Bays the Cincinnati Enquirer,
those who hunt can find; those who aro
scut for a special purpose, must fulfill
that purpose. It is necessary for tho
political advantage of thc administration
that the South should be in a terrible
condition, and if that condition docs
not exist, it must be so declared, at all
hazards. Thcro never was a usurper,
from tho moBt ancient to tho most
modern times, that did not seek to ex?
cuse his usurpation by pretending ho
had discovered a most dangeroua con?
spiracy that required high-handed mea?
sures to suppress. Wo may look now
every duy for the most awful accounts
from the emissaries that Grant has sent
to this section, for upon their accounts
a superstructure of despotism, selfish if
not bloody, is sought to be reared. The
thing which is really sad to those in
authority is that the South is rapidly
becoming Democratic, despite the bayo?
net and the negroes who are pressed by
it to tho polls. As long as the bayonet
bad its own wny uud Republican victo?
ries were secured, everything was lovely,
and the Southern people were returning
rapidly to loyalty. But presto! with
Democratic success, what a change!

SOUTHERN "OUTHAOE" TESTIMONY.
The Washington correspondent of tho
Baltimore Sun telegraphs to that paper
us follows, under date of tho 2!)th ult. :
Since the appropriation of 810,000
made by Congress for witnesses for thc
Special Senate Committee to investigate
the condition of the South, numerous
applications have como from all kinds of
people, who seem desirous ot gaining a
little notorioty, and have all their ix
penses defrayed in a trip to Washington.
Some of thom profess to make startling
revelations, while others propose to de?
tail outrages already known to tho pub?
lic. On thc other hand, the conserva?
tives of tho South, who do not get au
opportunity lo bo summoned, but who
desire a fuir stutonient of tho condition
of affairs, uro coming hero ut their own
exp on no. A committee of citizens of
Laurens County, S. (J., have arrived i
herc to show that the riot caused there \
last November, in which at least a dozen
were killed, was on ti rely attributable to
violent speeches made by Republican j
lenders, and that no Ku K luxes or con- j
servutives wore engaged in it. Tbc Spc-1
ciul Committee did not take any evidence
THE LADIES' GUN-BOAT.-Thc sunken
Confederate ram Georgia, bettor known
during tho lute war to the people of Ibis
State us tho "Ladies' Gun-boat," (she
having boon built by contributions from j
HU? patriotic wives, mothers and dnugk
tars of tho soldiers of tho lost causo,) is i
about to bo removed from the river'
abreast of Fort Jackson, where she was
sunk by ber crew on tho evacuation of
Savauiiab, by Gen. Haidee, in Decem?
ber, 18G1. Capt. Abell, who bas charge
of tho work, has blown off tho iron roof
of tho Georgia with powder, and by tho ?
aid of careful and experienced divers,will
soon succeed in removing the obstruc?
Villon la Strength.
Tho Charleston News publishes the
following communication, introducing it
"THE AaRioaiiTOiuij SOCIETIES br TEE
STATE.-We print to-day a thoughtful
and forcible letter in relation to the pro?
posed combination, or amalgamation,
into ono powerful and vigorous body of
tho di Aero nt agricultural societies in the
State. We sincerely hope that steps will
be taken to have tho Charleston interests
represented at the meeting to bo held in
Columbia, on the 8th instant. There is
no time to lose, and, if we intend to
move at all, it should bo done quickly:
"Mn. EDITOR: In your iBsue of the
25th January, there is a communication,
over tho signuturoof 'Charleston,'and
nu editorial notice, headed 'Our State
Agricultural Societies,' that induces me
to trespass upon your spaco and the pa?
tience of your readers. Both tho com
m u meat ion of 'Charleston'und your edi?
torial notice look to the harmonizing and
concentration of our efforts at agricultu?
ral organization. Wo aro a very poor
people-almost OB poor to-day us any day
8inco Sherman left us. We are a pro?
scribed people. Thc laborer assesses the
tax; tho employer pays it. The pauper
runs tho machine; tho property-holder
greases it. The alien and the ignorant
till the places of honor, while the in?
fluence of the nation nud of educated
intelligence is unheeded iu our halls of
legislation. Further, wo arc au agricul?
tural people, aud, from that very fact,
independents aud secessionists by nature
-hating co-operation as tho devil hates
holy water, aud neediug it us badly.
But if the aucient civilization of South
Carolina is to be preserved, and we who
once were part of it are to have any in?
fluence upon her future, it is through,
and, for tho preseut, by these agricultu?
ral aud mechuuicitl organizations we
must act. And what are wo doing? We
have in Charleston the Institute organi?
zation, nod a South Carolina Society
both iu difficulties; in Columbia, a State
Agricultural Society, by no means upon
a .sound basis, and hero and there
throughout thc State local organizations,
destined, as any one can seo with half uri
eye, to an ephemeral existence. It
would bo unkind to add to the list the
Immigrant Association of last May, as
that seems to have been still-born.
Thus we fritter away our efforts ut in?
dustrial and social organization. With
difficulty able to support ono organiza?
tion, wo aro straining at half a dozen,
aud will soon have none.
"I, for one, freely endorse the plea of
3'our correspondent and your own re?
marks in favor of concentration. The
meeting of the State Agricultural So?
ciety, iu Columbia, on the 8th February,
culled with u view to placing itself on a
sure foundation, affords tho opportunity.
Let delegates from the societies existing,
let individuals from tho classes interest?
ed, factors, merchants, planters, me?
chanics-in short, all of us who eau
raise his eves from cotton ut thirteen
cents a pound to our possible future
meet thia .society nud join in effecting
what we need. When times ure better,
each one of the societies now existing
may resume its sphere of independent
and local influence. Our need, now, is
one organization, which, embracing the
whole State-up-country, low country
and middle country-will wield a force
sufficient to give a legitimate influence
to tho industrial und social interests
which it represents.
"We want n place und au occasion
where we eau all, onco a year, see ouch
other's faces, and plan and executo what
we may for SOUTH CAROLINA."
Trie Sin of February.
Mit. EDITOR: The day appointed for
the assembling of the members of tho
South Carolina Agricultural and Me?
chanical Society aud stockholders of the
Auxiliary Joint Stock Company, is near
at hand. Will the mechanics and agri?
culturists, and all other citizens of our
Stuto interested in the development of
her material resources, heed this call?
I trust they rna}-. Let every such citi?
zen go to Columbia on tho8tli inst., if
he intends only subscribing a single
shan\ While in convention thus as?
sembled, let them organize an efficieut
co-operation, which, having nu eye siu
glo to the material progress of tho State,
will in the future seo that the public
weal suffers no detriment from a dis?
jointed body politic. Our State is a
house divided against itself. Our mate?
rial aud political machinery do not work
j in harmony with each other. Thu cou?
su mers of thu country, tyrannical cor

compel tho produc?s to "make brick
without straw." And wherefore? Be?

others are not. Docs not our very exi.it

AN INCENDIARY PIKE.-Our townsman,
Mr. Burt Muyhin, on Monday night last,
was mudo to RH fier thu loss ol' about
85,000 worth of properly, through the
fiendish burning of his stables, eight
hoad of valuable horses and mules, corn

which divides Union from Newberry,
but he resides herc in town, and ho was

aster. Both stable and cribs were tiru?!
from each end, which showed a full pur?

Muybin has had an interview with Go?

open, and with a double-barrelled .shot?
gun, in tho face and side, with mixed
i loads of buck mid smaller shot, and thal
I either shot would have been fatal. Dealt
j was instantaneous. This is a most hor?
rible uud foul murder, rendered doublv
I so that the victim was a minister and an
inoffensive and quiet gentleman, and
most melancholy is it that his'wifo ii

Hasler, Edward Iloil'mau anil J. Levy,
j is to appear in this city, at Irwin's new
hall, opposite the Columbia Hotel, this
evening. Tho fame of theso talented
j musicians has preceded them, nnd it is
i anticipated that the hull will be lilied to
its utmost capacity. In thc Mobile Jic
Igtsler, of Weducsduy, "Bound About,"
u thorough musical critic, commenting
i on Miss Phillipps' appearance in Mobile,
I last. Tuesday night, said:
"Miss Adelaide Phillipps chose that
very difficult piece, 'Una Voce,' from thc
; 'Barber,' to moko her debut here in.
i Her first notes at once revealed a voice
of remarkable power, lull, rich and har?
monious iu its vol limo and tone, and
managed with tho taste and skill of au
artist whose .school and method have
been modeled hy tho bust masters.
There is a richness and force about Miss
Phillipps' voice Unit reminds us of some
of Parodi aud Vestival's great notes in
their puliny days. Her versatility is
very great, and after the marvelous di.'
ticuitiesof 'Una Voce,' she.sang witii the
most engaging simplicity, and iu a very
winning, cunning way, 'Comin thro' the
Ilya* for tho encore."
"Hound About" .says Mr. Levy per?
formed prodigies of skill and melody.
Tho wondrous difficulties ho surmount?
ed, the novel and ravishingly sweet tones,
tremulous with feeling, and given with a
delicious softness, made his instrument
sing in the silvery accents ol' borne weird,
elfish spirit, como to haunt us with some
of tho music of tho spheres. Mr. Ed?
ward Iloil'mau is generally spoken of ns
a brilliant pianist, with rather a femiuiue
touch. Mr. Hasler is a young German
baritone, sith n voice of linc eompusp,
