Our climate is unsurpassed in geniality
and healthfulness. Land is more abund?

cheaper, than in any of the older States

being brought to the highest point of
fertility at comparatively small oost. We
have fine water, an abundance of valua?

State possesses every requisite to com?

} The reason of oar failure heretofore
in'the "varions'plans whioh liave been
partially tried to bring in immigrants,
seems to ns to lie in the fact that we
have sought for laborers rather.than set?
tlers. The prevalent idea has been to
suppl?ment the insufficient negro labor
with white men, of the laboring classes,
from the more crowded oommanities of
the old world. This it is impossible to
do, so long as there remain millions of
acres in the more fertile West open and
ready to furnish a home and farm of his
own to every oue who will seek it. No
man will be the servant of another if he
eau engage in the same kind of business
on his own responsibility, with equal or
greater prospects of profit. This is why
negro labor is found so inadequate at the
present time. There are as many colored
. people in- the State as there were in
times of slavery, aqd there is but a small
fraction less of them engaged now, as
then, in agricultural labor..

Those that are steady and industrious

to publish Ku Klux stories. North Ca?

of the imaginary outrages which have at

These outrages will be transferred to
other Southern States as soon as the
eleotions are over in North Carolina.
They' are invented to arouse a spirit of
hostility to the South in the breasts of

the re-election of General Grant.

of Charleston, by the Grand Master of

Ancient Free Masons, of South Caro?

CHARLESTON, July 3, A. L., 5872.
It is my painful duty to announce to
the craft of this State that, on tho 2d
inst., Most Worshipful Charles M. Fur
man, Post Grand Master of the Graud
Lodge of South Carolina, one of the
most fervent worshippers nt our altars,
passed boyond these vails into a higher
temple "not made with hands." A life
of such extended usefulness and purity,
so rich in all that makes a full and noble
manhood, asks no eulogy. Nor could
we bestow a fitting one while we bend
under the first shock of bereavement.
While our hearts are stricken with Bor?
row, we can only remember how we shall
miss tho venerable form, the warm hand?
clasp, the wise counsel, the temperate
"That beat portion of a good man's life,
His little, nameless, unremembered acta
Of kindness and of love."
When time shall sear over our now
bleeding wounds, fitting hands will
gather up the threads of this broken life
and weave them into a web of harmony
But that wo may give some expression
to our sorrow, I recommend to the craft
throughout tho entire State that our
jewels and the horne of our altars bo
draped iu mourning for the space of
sixty days, and as we bewail our fallen
chief, may we emulate the virtues we are
BO proud to remember.

"Picket," tho correspondent of the
Charleston Netts, interviewed Judge Orr,
nt Anderson, tho other day. Ho also
visited Abbeville County. We make the
following extract from his letter. We
will take occasion hereafter to notice at
length his interview with Judge Orr:
"In Abbeville County political affairs
appear to be lively. There the United
Brethren flourish largely, and excited
political meetings are held io different
parts of the County almost nightly.
Every effort is 'made to array the black
men in hostility cgaicst the whites. A
few nights ago one office-holder, whoae
most prominent exploitsince he deserted
from the Confederate army was robbing
the County Treasurer's safe, made a
rabid Radical speech about rebels,
slavery and Ku Klux, which Frank
Moses, who listened to it, declared made
his blood ourdie in his veins, and which
may, therefore, be assumed to have been
a pretty ugly speech. The speakers are
mostly, contemptible hounds who impose
almost incredibly upon the ignorance of
their colored auditors. One sample lie
will very aptly illustrate the absurd no?
tions with which they fill the beads of
the negroes. One of the speakers, a
member of the late Legislature, gravely
informed his audience that at the last
session he offered a bill in the Legisla?
ture to establish the price of bacon at
ten cents instead of fifteen cents per
pound, and that this bill would have be?
come a law, and the negroes would have
got their bacon for ten couta a pound
if it had not been for the opposition of
the rival candidate for re-election who
had voted against it because he thought
ten cents was too low. He promised,
however, if be were sent back to the
House that be would next winter fix the
law so as to bring bacon down to ten
cents, and his audience promised to send

The peu refuses to depict tho horrors.
Tho heart trembles ut the very thought
of the unspeakable misery, uud every
fibre quivers ut the recollection of tho
fearful terrors through which wu have
just passed. The picture is terrible. It
recalls to my ininti tho times of the In?
quisition, and the horrors of the Paris
blood wedding. Like a hoard of wild
beasts just escaped from their cages, the
mob, goaded to madness by fanatical
priests, and instigated to excessive fury
by rascally intriguers, flow through tho
streets howling for revenge. The mur?
derous, blood-thirsty rabble rushed un?
restrained from house to bouse, from
street to street. Heartless und without
pity, they spared neither tottering old
age, tbe trembling woman, nor the bube
at its mother's breast.
Without power for resi?tuuee, our
brethren wore subjected to the mast in?
human and barbarous treatment. Wives
and daughters were outraced before the
very eyes of husbands nud pureuts; their
houser were plundered, our sanctuaries
desecrated, our sacred law-rolls stolen,
and even our dead were not spared, but
their slumbers disturbed, uud our ceme?
tery destroyed. Many succumbed to
the wounds they received. Outraged
wives and girls hide their dishonor,
starving uud freezing iu grave-like
cellars. Bick men and women lie, de?
void even of a straw bed, in shanties
without windows uud doors, with no
pillows to rest their hoads, no blanket
to cover their feverish bodies. Hun?
dreds of unfortunates, robbed of all save
the clothes they wear, palo with terror,
wander, starving and without shelter,
from door to door, from street to street,
and beg for succor at the doors of those
few who were spared or suffered less
We can go no further, overcome by
our agony, and rendered destitute of
words by the intensity of our sufferings,
we can say no more.
Brethren, BO far but little bas been
done to relieve our misery, to dry the
tears of these unfortunates, or to miti?
gate their sufferings. Therefore, we to?
day appeal to you, dear brethren, HODS of
our Father, w ho, like us, pray to the one
living God, the God of Israel, tho foun?
tain of all love, for whose sake we now
Huffer; and as we rely upon Him and His
mercy, so do wo hope for your generosi?

and wo are convinced that we will not be

Let each give according to bis means,
and each who will think of Iiis unfortu?

vance the most heartfelt thanks of our

Mr. Charles Perkins, (lately deceased,)
by the name of Edward Nash, was car?
ried to the poor house, a few days since,
and remained there under treatment for
eleven days, during which time not one
mouthful of food passed bis lips, be re?
solutely refusing to touch it, saying that
be did not desire to live now that bis old
master was dead. We are informed he
ate nothing for seven days before he was
oarried to the poor house, making
eighteen days during wbich he syste?
matically starved himself. We doubt if

spending thron years with tho Sioux,
suffering gross indignities and being
compelled to perform the most menial
duties, she attempted to escape, but
was recaptured and beaten nearly to
death by her husband, and then sold to
a Cheyenne chief for three ponys. She
was taken North in 1870, and remained
with the Cheyeunes nutil this spring,
when she escaped to Fort Bonton. Miss
