Ow? Cerreiipoiiacnt Ui lUo South Caro,
A correspondent, who' Signs himself
* 'Mo a n ta i n and Sea- bo ar u,1 ' ae ka ns cer?
tain questions respecting the South Ca?
rolina University. We desire briefly to
reply to the questions, and to indicate
our views on the subject matter. We
regret that the South Carolina University
is not a flourishing institution. As the
.successor of the South Carolina College,
it is linked with and forms park of an in?
stitution around which cluster memories
that the old ci tizona of the State will not
willingly let die. Farther, we have a
very high appreciation Of the philosophy
.of ? central ?tate institution of learning.
Wo ought to bavoasun in our educa?
tional system, and this we Bay with no
design, of disparaging other institutions.
Bat we may add, that we deem it no
fault of tho people of tho. State, and no
fault of the professors of the University,
that success has not marked the history
of the University since the new regime.
It is duo to the fact .that the University
jests, and' cannot help so resting, under
'thh ?lindow of tho npaa tree bf ' Radical?
ism-that tree tba fatal influence of
which paralyzes. every interest of the
.State;'mental, moral, and material, and
which tends, f?rther, to poison the very
life of the State. It is true, that the
Authorities have exercised towards the
University some forbearance. As for
ibo money they have appropriated, they
.deserve no thanks. It was the money of
the ?tate, and -where they have rightly
applied a few thousands, they have mis?
applied or squandered millions. Nor
have they done for the University what
they should have done. They should
remove their hands entirely off. The
University cannot, if it is to suooaed, be
fish, flesh and fowl. It must be one or
tho other. It mast stand out in bold
irelief, an institution for the whites of
?tho State. At the same time, we do not
?object to Claflin or somo o?her college
standing ont, in equally bold relief, an
institution for the colored people of the
?State. That public man who thinks
that he can secure public education upon
?ho basis of mixed schools and colleges
4a a poor statesman, and if he under?
takes to carry out such a scheme, wa
pronounce him now a fool for his pains.
At the same time, whilst we hold to
these views, it is our duty, as well as oar
pleasure, to present the oose of the pro?
fessors and officers of the institution as
wo understand it. It is due to truth
ned them that they should not be mis?
represented as respects their attitude io
the past, as well as the present.
After the close of the war, before the
present corrupt regime, the College was
.oonverted into the present University,
and, in addition to the aoademio schools,
schools of law and medioine were estab?
lished. In 1867, the roll of students
was 108, the next year it was 113, the
next year it fell to sixty-eight. Why woe
this? Because of the new regime? Thia
is the matter in a nut-shell; because,
whilst the University had an acceptable
?corps of teachers, the Board of Trus
ttees gave offenoe, and properly gave
?offonae, to the sensibilities of the State.
The position of the professors was a try?
ing one. Let us do justice to these gen?
tlemen, and recognize the conflict thal
?rose in their minds. They had a trust,
It was the University. This trust had
.been confided to them by the for mei
regime. The question arose as to whal
their duty was. So long as no degrad?
ing condition was attached to the tenure
of their office, they felt it their duty tc
retain their offices and to preserve foi
.better and more auspicious times the in
stitution which had beon so long thc
pride and ornameut of the State, ont
which had contributed so largely to al
the intellectual fame which attaches tc
the past of the State. In this point o
view, no reproach can attach to Un
officers of the institution. We are not
.aware that they nave, in any respect
abated aught of their fidelity to truth,
their consciences and the State. Dis
?creetly, bnt firmly and quietly, they
seek, we take it, to carry the University
flag,'and to preserve it, untarnished, foi
the better days ooinicg-when, removed
fcom baleful influences, the University
?hall again number its hundreds and dc
its good work. We know all the pro
fessors, excepting only the Rev. Mr
Babbitt, who is the only appointee o
tho present Board that carno fron
abroad. The gentlemen we know ari
true and reliable men, who require m
.eulogy at oar hands, as they speak fo
themselves in their oharaoters and thoi
services. Tho gentleman whom we d<
not know, for aught we can say, is with
ont reproach ead worthy of acceptation
We can, therefore, say, that whilst we ar
not surprised at the condition of th
University, and sympathize with th
spirit that prodaces the paucity of sta
dents; yet no blame can attach to the'
professors, and we deem them as, of
oourae, worthy of public confidence and
the publio consid?ration. As for the
speoial point made by our correspondent,
we learn that, so far at least as the medi?
cal sohoohis concerned, the point made
oin hardly be deemed well taken. We
are informed that the namber of stu?
dents in that department is between
forty and fifty, aud that this sohool,
therefore, contributes a majority of re?
cruits to the University. The professors
of tho Coll ?go iu the ?io ade m i o schools
are: Professors lt. W. Earn well, W. J.
Rivers, J. 0. Faber, M. LaBorde, J. L.
Reynolds, T. E. Hart, James Woodrow
and B. B. Babbitt. In the sohool of
law: 0. D. Melton, Esq. lathe sohool
of medicine: Professors J. T. Darby, A.
N. Talley, James Woodrow, M. La Borde,
John Lynch and Edward B. Smith.
Rev. 0. Bruce Walker is Librarian. The
official report informs us that the Uni?
versity had, last year, an attendance of
"The nverage cost to the State, for the
year, of the tuition of each of these
students was $455.88. The State appro?
priations for the University, for the fiscal
year, ending Ootober 31, 1871, were as
follows: For the support of the Univer?
sity. $25,000: for repairs on the Univer?
sity buildings, $6,000; total, $31,000.
The Treasurer of the University reports
that he hos collected fees amounting, in
the aggregate, to $1,587.60." .
Tne Adventurer from Brooklyn.-Brazen
Leslie, so-called Senator from Burn
well in the Legislature, is trying very
hard to prove that hs aoted just like the
honest man that he is in the Land Com?
mission business. The amount of the
matter is, that he thinks he has covered
up hia traoks so well that they cannot be
discovered ia the mud of FHAUD. That
remains to be seen, for we have a pro?
found conviction that the misdeeds ol
the rascals, big as well as little, whe
havo been plundering our people, will
yet be unveiled. The veil that oonoealf
the hideous features of these people w il
be tora aside, und many a Mokanna wiL

their oorrupt deformity. Chief amonj

We have read the account given in th>
News of the debate between Whittemor
and himself. We notice this especially
Upon Mr. Whittemore's asking the ex
Land Commissioner if he had not re
ceived a Bum of money as the prico c
his resignation of the office of Lam
Commissioner, he did not deny it. Th
reason why, we know. It is because th
evidonoe exists, and may be produced
that he did receive money as the prie
of his resignation. And his petty coe
ceptions of honesty and honor and oil
ciul decency do not allow him to ad mi
that it was a shameful transaction. Lei
lie says that it is nobody's business ho
he had resigned, or why he had r?sign?e
Shameless adventurer, it is the businec
of somebody. It is the business of th
people of this State, whose servant yo
were and are. It is the white man's bi
siness. It is the black man's bnsinesi
And particularly is it the business of tb

lu Agriculture, Manufactures ?nd Im?
If there.be three interests, in connec?
tion with oar industrial future, that we
have ever eiDOO the war sought to mag?
nify over and above all other interests,
it is our interests in the matter of agri?
cultural and manafaoturing develop?
ment and immigration. These make op
a triple power that will do much towards
establishing anew the foundation of oar
restored industries. To improvo our
agricultural system, to make it more
tborongh, to adapt it to the new order of
thinga-tbis is the great work of the
planter and farmer. To multiply our
manufactories, to utilize our products, to
develop our mechanical resources-this
is the great work of the meohanio and
the manufacturer. To open oar country
to the settlers of the North and to Eu?
ropean immigrants, to encourage white
labor, and to make the most of the labot
we have-thia is the great duty of al!
wide-awake, liberal and progressive citi
zens. These are the ends we have evei
kept In view, and we keep our eye opor
oar industrial objective point. It is bj
these methods and by this policy that wt
are to build up "our State, and to seonn
that power of wealth which will b<
foaud to give foroe, substance and per
in un on co to the viotories of intelligent
and virtue. Nor let this troth be evei
forgotten, that to make our political vic
tories Bure and useful, tho* plow, tin
loom and the anvil must help on the in
visible .work of tbe pen and tho voice.
In the last number of the Eural Caro
Un?an-a monthly deserving the waru
support of our people-we notice tw>
articles in particular to which wo desir
to call attention. The ono is upon "Th
Agricultural Advantages of South Care
lina, and its Inducements to Lnmigralion.
The other is headed: "Can the South bi
come a Manufacturing Country?" Co
Aiken, of Abbeville, is the author of th
ono article-tho first mentioned. If w
aie not mistaken, the author of the othc

by tho author. He speaks of our State
physical characteristics, and alludes 1
its climate. Tbe questions of real c
tate, sooial status, education, religioi

gontly discussed. Col. Aiken says, i
"To sum up in an epitome of trul
and correctness, South Carolina has tl

sitien and railroad facilities place her

The author of the article, "Can t

to us. Wo believe that the author L
rightly replied in the affirmative. J

WHAT MESH r.s. STANuKUY AND JOHN?
SON SAY OP THEIB RECEPTION AND TBEAT- j
MENT, SoCIAIi AND OTHERWISE, IN SOUTH
CAROLINA.-The Cincinnati (Josette pub?
lishes the substance of an interview its
reporter had with Hon. Henry Stanbery,
ooncerning certain dumaging statements
contained in the newspapers, in regard
to his exp?rience during the Kn Klux
trials in South Carolina, and especially
with reference to the alleged discourtesy
Bbown him and his associate counsel,
Hon. Reverdy Johnson, by leading citi?
zens of Columbia, und the report that
they had retired in disgust from the de?
fence of these cases:
Mr. Stanbery, who had heard of these
statements, bat bad not read them, on
being shown them, at onco pronounced
them wholly without foundation. He
said Mr. Johnson and he received in Co?
lumbia a warm welcome from the citi?
zens, who repeatedly expressed th-?r
grateful sonso of aud appreciation of
their professional services in these cuses.
A wish was expressed by the citizens
that thoy would accept a public enter?
tainment, but this was discouraged by
Mr. Johnson and ho, who fouud them
selves too fully occupied with their pro?
fessional duties, aud besides, under the
circumstances, they deemed it inexpedi?
ent. Mr. Staubery showed the reporter
a letter from Geueral Hamplou, dated
Columbia, December 23, written ou the
oveuing of tho ex-Attorney-General's
departure, in which General Hampton
says: "Allow me, as chairman of the
oomtnittoo inviting you here, to express
the sense of the obligation felt by onr
people to you for the zeal you have
shown, and the great ability yon have
manifested in tho great question now at
stake." Mr. Stanbery said their recep?
tion socially was all that could be de?
sired, though they were debarred to some
extent from moving in sooiety by the en?
grossing nature of their duties. Mr. S.
said their purpose in visiting Columbia
was to argue legal questions that grow
out of the Ku Klux prosecution, touch?
ing tho jurisdiction of the courts of the
United States over tho offence und the
constitutionality of the Act? of Con?
gress, called the Enforcement Acta of
1871, with a view of bringing these
queutions before tho- Supreme Court of
the Uuited States, and that they had
succeeded upon n division of opinion
between tho Circuit and District Judges
in having two important questions certi?
fied to thu Supremo Court of the United
Stutcs. These questions Messrs. John?
son und Stanbery expected to argue in a
few weeks. Upon pressing request of
local council they did not assist in the
trial by jury of. one case, and whatever
disgust they experienced while at Colom?
bia, was in the utter hopelessness of de?
fending, against a chargo whioh, in their
judgment, waa not made ont, before snob,
a jury us sat iu tho caso. Ha said that
persons to nerve as jurors in the United
States Court, in South Carolina, are se?
lected by tho Collectors of United States
internal revenue, and that the jury
which Hut in tho caso above referred to
was composed of ton negroes and two
whites. In view of this aud kindred
fuots Mr. Staubery said that some idea
might bo formed as to the manner the
Collectors had discharged their duty.
Tho death of Major General Halleok

give the enterprise a prestige. It is a

highest encomiums from the press in
