Tuesiay Hom in sr, January 30,1872.
A Ci? rd-To tW4 Pabllc.
It is not my canto m to ' parade my
matters of private bcsinees before the
publio, but Mr. Thomas, of tho Caroli?
nian, has Boen fit to publish certain de?
spatches to and from the agent of the
Associated Press, himself, the proprietor
of the Union, and myself, relative to the
terms npon which the press despatohes
are to be allowed to the Carolinian. His
comments thereon are calculated to put
me in a falsa light before those of the
community who are unacquainted with
such matters. The proprietor of the
Carolinian would impress the publio
with the belief that it is a most unheard
of and unjust imposition to require of
him to pay a bonus for the privilege of
receiving the despatches, and that the
domand is nothing moro than a com?
bined effort to hush his self-important
voiae, and retard the rapid porsuit of
the ring upon which he is engaged.
Tho truth is, an established custom of
the Press Association requires that new
enterprises in tho line of journalism
shall pay a certain sum before being ad?
mitted to the privileges of membership.
The amount tq be paid vanes in differ?
ent localities, and ia apportioned record?
ing to tho size of tho piano and the num?
ber of papers already' established. In
New York, $15,000. ia; required; in Au?
gusta, the Pr?ts had' to pay $1,000; in
Savannah, the Advertiser the same; in
Charleston, the Republican was assessed
$400; in Columbia, the South n Guar
dian, $150, when only this pager (the
PHOENIX) was ia the field; and tho Union
pair]LW>e. Tho $200 required of thc
Carolinian is comparatively a very small
I uesiro to.. throw no obstacles what?
ever ih tho way of th? Carolinian, and
am perfectly willing to extend to it all
the courtesies of journalism; but I am
not to be cajoled i or frightened into, (lie
snrrender of my rights. So far from
the Carolinian being a special object ol
persecution, as its proprietor .would
make it appear, it is he that claims as c
right' that which' he cannot recei ve other?
wise the.u as a gift.

Wulsh, received yesterday, oxpiains.anc

AUGUSTA, QA., January 29, 1872.
Col. Thomas, Columbia, 8. C.:
I have read your artiole in Sunday'i
paper. The demand whioh Messrs
Sulby and Carpenter make is not unjust
as old papers have the right to demand i
bonus, and, in addition, to insist that t
now paper shall give security for om
year for the payment of its pro rata o
assessment. Snob demands are alway
sustained when the amount of bonus i
not exorbitant. The sum named is smai
in comparison to amounts paid elsewhere
I merely desire to set myself right witl
PATRICK WALSH, Agent.
Mr. Cathcart will please furnish cop;
of the above to Messrs. Selby and Car
penter. P. WALSH.
The public can judge for themselve
of the truth of the silly and self-conceit
ad obarges made by the proprietor c
the Carolinian, of a ring combination t
suppress bis trumpet. He may blow bi
horn as loudly as he will, and continu
to sound his own praises in the Carob
nian as lustily and incessantly as th
oolumns of the PHOINIX Were made t
do, under his editorial management. H
may still gratify his vanity by publishin
extended and complimentary reports c
his own remarks, and letters from friend?
laudatory of himself. He may, indeed
endeavor to advance in the Carolinian
as he certainly did while editor of th
PHGSNIX, his own personal iniet-esU? en
tickle his overweening vanity, in sue
manner and style as to him may seei
delicate and proper. But when, to giv
a heotio glow of life to his infant ente:
prise, he casts malioious reflections upo
me, and strives to injure my business,
shall have a word to say to him, an
promise him, in all cases, a Boland ft
I did not desire controversy with hie
but I shall not shun it, when his diet
torial course provokes it. As for tl
futuro conduct of the PIICKNIX, the pu1
lie will find that it will manifest noi
the less, for his absenoe, the spirit whit
Mr. Thomas BO pompously claims to ha'
breathed into it. It shall hereafter,

The law in this State preeoriblng the
manner of conducting elections is a dis?
grace to tba statute book of any free
aud oivilized people. lils ao admitted
even by tho leadiws and influential mem?
bers of the Radical patty; and yet, al?
though a bill to amend it and expunge its
most objectionable features was intro?
duced and favorably reported upon by
the Committee on Elections, and its ne
cessity and propriety clearly demon?
strated . in ,. debate ?t the session ot
1870-71, it still oumbora the calendar of
the Senate, or is, stuck in some pigeon
hole ot a committee, and is likely to re?
main theta. The prominent objections
to the law, aa it now stands, are, first,
the unlimited and dangerous power
given the Governor, in the appointment
of the commissioners of election, and
consequent control of the managers;
and, Beoond, tho unusual length of time
in which the managers aro allowed to
count the votes and make their return to
The Governor, by confining bis ap?
pointments to bis own particular satel?
lites, can aeonre bia own election and
whatever of - the other candidates may
be acceptable to him, without any re?
gard to the ballots of the people. But
oven should the Governor be above the
employment of auch fraudulent mea?
sures to accomplish hie cods, thc people
are ielt> to the tender mercies of the
managers, j themselves, who, if they aro
so disposed,: oan stuff, the boxes to their
hearts' content, to aid the eleotion of
their special favorites.
The bill referred to above, as amenda?
tory of the Aot now in force, provides
for the immediata/counting of the voteB
after the closing of the polls, as was the
old custer in bur State, and ?ur?Wr re?
quires th: each political party in the
field be represented upon tba board of
managers and the board ot oommi?
sio) rs of election, if there are not moro
than three parties. The opposition to
the new bill, urged last winter, was the
flimsy pretext that the appointment ul
Demoorats to take a share of the ma?
nagement and supervision of the elec?
tions, was an aot of just i co that would not
be accorded the Republicana were
the Demoorats in the ascendancy.
In otb v words, the great "God abd
morality" party should, according to
these solona, adopt as tho rule of theil
oonduot the very iniquities whioh thej
oharge against their political enemies,
But even this ground of excuso, untena?
ble and self-contradictory as it is uudei
any ciroumstanoes, cannot be rraintainec*
now. The indications are, nuJf we fee
justified iu saying with certainty, thal
the Democracy of South Carolina wil
not make nominations or support part]
candidates at the approaching elec
tiona. The field will be left to the Re
publicans entirely, and the contest wil
be between rival factious of that party
Tho Democrats will look quietly on; tr]
to run in such good men us they can io:
County offices; and as for the others
seek for the least dishonest Radicals
aud vote for them. In view of this con
dition of things, it may be well for tb?
opponents of Scott and the present oor
rupt administration in the Legislature
(we mean the Republicans,) to see to i
that the election law be so amended, be
fore adjournment, as to BC oura a fai
election, and preclude those opportun i
ties for frauds whioh characterized th
elections in 1868 in every County wher
there was the smallest apprehension of
closely contested race. If R. E. Soot
becomes again a candidate for re-elec
tion to the gubernatorial chair, all effort
to defeat him, even by a majority of hi
own political party, will prove otterl
futile, if the eleotion laws romain as the
now are. If he does not havo himse
elected, it will be because he is to
honorable, pure and chivalrous to prai
tice a fraud when the way is clear an
every temptation before him, of unhol
ambition and avaricious groed, to entic
bim on. We leave every one to judg
for himself, basing his conclusions apo

AM IRISH THRONB.-The Now York
News publish os the follow! og despatch,
nuder date of London, January 26:
The English Government is privately
discussing a proposition to make Ire?
land a Viceroy of Great Britain. The
following are tho two leading features of
the proposition, viz: The hereditary
Pr ?noe of Wales to be Viceroy, and a
permanent Boyal Court to be held in
It is understood that the reoent agita?
tions in Ireland in regard to the question
of "Home Bale," have shown the Go?
vernment the nrgent necessity of taking
immediate steps toward the adoption of
of a more oonoiliatbry policy in dealing
with the question at issue.
It is believed tho subject will he
brought prominently before Parliament
when it convenes on the 6th of Febru?
ary, when the proposition for a Vice
royalty will be submitted for thoir cou
sid elation. .
The proposition, as it stands at pre?
sent; emanating from an official souroe,
bas created a profound impression
throughout England, and forms the
principal topic of discussion in the clubs.
MIOKATION FROM THE STATE.-The
Union Times, of the 26th inst., says:
A large number of citizens from the
niuo persecuted Counties of this State
aro emigrating to the States of Georgia,
Texas und Arkansas. Sosroely a train
pusses" that does not carry a number of
white families away; but there is a great?
er exodus of colored people than whites.
On our way to Columbia, a few weeks
ago, we found in tho oare of tho Spar?
enburg and Union Road not less than
twenty able-bodied colored men-some
with their families-who were on their
way to the West, and they told os that
a number of othor colored -people were
preparing to leave, while a great many
more would like -to go if they had the
means. One of the men made the fol?
lowing significant remark: "If the d-d
Marshals had let the white folks alone,
wd should have stayed here and done
well, but we oan't stay where de white
folks aro drove away."
It is a singular fact-and one that goes
far to deny the assertions of the Radioal
press and their lying correspondents
that tho colored people do not feel se
aure among the white Southern people,
and are abusod by them; that scarcely a
white family has left this County with?
out being followed hy twice as many co?
lored families. Soon after the Marshals
oommenood their indiscriminate arrests
of the whito people of this County, the
neighborhood of Pacolet was almost de?
populated of its white men. Great fear
was then entertained that the colored
people would become troublesome to the
women and ohildren left; bnt, strange to
say, the colored people of that section
aro now following their old neighbors
and employers so fast that one-half the
prolific lands of that section will not bo
cultivated this year for want of labor.
It is estimated that about 100 white men
and 300 colored persons have left Union
County during the past two months, and
we learn they ate leaving the other eight
Counties in about the same ratio?
The colored people, when left to their
own free and unbiased choice, will al?
ways cling to the true white Southern
Oem STEAMSHIPS.-The demand for
freight room at this point for the North?
ern oities is BO active ss to keep our
steamships busily engaged. The steam?
ship James Adger, w> ich arrived here
from New York on Friday morning, left
here yesterday with a full freight, having
boon only forty-eight hours in port.
The splendid steamship Georgia, of the
iron line, reaohed her wharf from New
York soon after 5 P. M., yesterday, with
a good freight, and will be despatobed
immediately. The great facilities whioh
are afforded to merchandize at this point
is attracting a large business, sud the
steam lines to Philadelphia and Balti?
more go full.-Charleston Courier,
CHILD BURNT TO DEATH.-A colored
child, four years old, the daughter of
I Bony Martin, who works on the wharf,
?and lives in Vender horst near Coming
I streets, was so severely burned ou Satur?
day afternoon, that it died early yester?
day morning. It went to the ohimuoy
plaoe unobserved and dabbled in the
fire, its olothes iguited, and although
tho screams of its sister, somewhat older,
in whoso oare it was, attracted help as
soou aa shu discovered its condition, it
waa mortally burned before assistance
could be rondered, and after suffering
severely, died as stated.

struck a stump whiob caused a double

ably supported by Mass Jennie McClel?
lan, who, though ? new faoe on our
Leards, baa already become quite a
favorite, and well does she deserve tba
compliment. Next carne. Buokstone's
beautiful musical drams, 'The Child of
the Regiment,' in which Mrs. Oates, as
Josephine, waa in her element, and, U
possible, added new laurels to her r?pu?
tation. The piece wai well calculated to
show the abilities of the company, and
each member seemed to vie wita each
other in showing their appreoiatidn of
the handsome compliment paid thara by
the large audience which greeted them
under such difficulties. Bain, sleet, nor
anything else caa keep the crowd away,
as was fully demonstrated last evening.
"It is only necessary to announce a
benefit for Mrs. Oates to night, witb so
good a piece as the Bohemian Girl on
the bill, tb secure aa overflowing house,
and that without respect to the weather.
The little lady's Savannah friends are
always ready to honor her professional
tulenia and personal worth, and they will
not fail to give demonstration of the
faot thi's evening.".

Dallcalo matures- Thia "ia tho phrase
applied by His Blaekneas, tile Moor of Ve?
nteo, to the fair ladlee of Italy. It waa tits
lovely complexion of Desdemona, such .a ra?
diant contrast to his own, that won bis heart;
and sooth to aay, every man of discernment
oonaiders a fair akin, nks a sweat voibe, "an
excellent thing in woman." Now, thin la a
okarm which can be acquired. Thor? is a
healthful and odoriferous toilet arttole, known
evervwhere as HAOAN'S MAOMOLIA BAI.SC,
whtoh literally transfigur?e a cloudy or sallow
skin, suffusing thc di ?colored faoe, neck, arms
and bosom with a soft, pearly tinge, and im?
parting to the surface a smoothness and a
gloaa like that of polished marble. Instead
of clogging the pore?, like the atioky enamels,
or contracting them, and thoa obstructing
perspiration, like the astringent cosmetics, it
cleansea the ? kin from all impurities and
wonderfully improves its texture. This pecu?
liarity ia particularly appreciated by oar
rural bellen, who find that theiooaratinesa and
roughness, which country air ia apt to engen?
der, are speedily removed from their faces,
hands and arms, by this uelightful prepara?
MT FBIRMO, atop that tarribls oongb, and
thus avoid a consumntiTS'a grave, by using
Dr. Pierce's Oolden Medioal Diacovery. For
caring all throat, bronchial and lung dis?
eases, it bas uiver been equaled. Bold by
