Sunday Morning, Arpril 4, 1875.7f
Prosperity, Quoth He.. ?
The Union-Herald protests that it.^ras
in dead earnest in asserting the recovered
condition of South Carolina from the
dcHolations of war, and the rule of the
carpet-bagger and hin credulous ally.
We were charitable enough to consider it
as indulging in a joke. But it comes up
with its figures, its observations of pass?
ing events unit us bigns of manifest im?
provement, to establish its position. It is
infinitely ludicrous' and the writer does
not justly appreciate himself as a humor?
ist He blends n little of truth, too, in
his humor to mako it go down. Nobody
means to assert that tho energy of the
people is dead, that they arc not strug?
gling manfully and successfully in many
places against all the evils and losses of
the past and all the spoliations and op?
pressions of the present We constantly
have occasion to note that "there's life
in the old land yet" We have had the |
pleasure for several years of summoning
them to renewed exertions, of pointing
out the various avenues to tho advance?
ment of their fortunes, to the recovery
from their losses, to diversified indus?
tries, to the establishment of manufac?
turing interests and to the improvement
of%their agriculture' Wo have faithfully
sought to bring into play again those
moral and intellectual forces, without
which tho plough and spindle, tho anvil,
hammer and plane aro but inefficient
tools in listless hands. Tho streams of
our lifo are either poisoned at the foun?
tains, or flow impeded by baleful obsta?
cles at every turn. They must be puri?
fied and cleared before their course can
bo prosperous and fertilizing. The
prime need of' our peoplo "is tho
advantages of education, the honest
and economical administration of tho
Government, i low taxes, fewer offices,
smaller- salaries, and a speedy riddance
from the corrupt influences which have
followed in the track of war, bringing
a worse train of evils than war itself. ? It
would he strange, indeed, if we had not
effected something by the extraordinary
exertions we have been compelled to
make. But no one with a spark of
manly feeling in him, no man who is
not an alien to every sentiment of affec?
tion and reverence for the past glory and
prosperity of this State, who has a drop
of blood in his veins running in sym?
pathy with the terrible wrongs inflicted
on thio people, more especially since tho
close of the war, can look upon their
condition to-day and call it really pros
porous. . To do so, he must be calloused
in indjfferenoe, or the victim of a strange
delusion. People manage to live, but
how many educate tbeir children? Where
are the schools, colleges, and other evi?
dences of civilization? where the moral
tone, tho just sentiment the honor that
shrinks from wrong, the spirit of justice,
the immovable. integrity, that character-,
izo a peoplo free, prosperous and ele?
vated? Not gone absolutely, but all
covered over and hidden, inert und almost
paralyzed by the moral miasma which
surrounds them. We aro happy to believe
we have been tho promptest to acknow?
ledge that there aro signs and evidences
of an improved condition of things
within the last few months. Tho skir?
mishing has begun, the opposing forces
have met, and the friends of honesty
and decency, those .who really care and
feel for the rights, property and well
being of the people, have cause to take
some hope from the results of the en?
counter. But tho battlo hits only just
commenced. It will he long and
desperate. It shows but a shallow appre?
ciation of the coming struggle, of tho
immense powers that are to be engaged,
of the vital issues involved in it, to
claim already the fruits of victory.
Prosperity, contentment, happiness of
the people, the true renaissence, can only
come from the liberation of tho forces
and influences which compose at once
the foundation and superstructure of
the State, and give it its only healthy
and normal activity. Owing to peculiar
circumstances, whatever views aro possi?
ble in the American system have gathered
here with all their intensity and vio?
lence. Until this headless excrescence,
this foul carbuncle, full of corrupt mat?
ter, with no exit w hi oh itself can make,
is removed, we must languish, showing
only the signs of a spasmr/dic, and, per?
haps, hurtful vitality.

The Philadelphia Press, of Monday,
calls upon tho country to stand by the
President. It boasts that the resolution
of endorsement, passed by tho Senate,
is the "first plonk of the platform on
whioh wc arc to move forward to victory
in 1876." The Press has a happy
faculty of 0**uwing comfort from Bmall
things. That resolution is the quint
essenon of milk and wator. It is tho
strong damnation of tho faintest praise,
and yet the strongest that tho Grantites
could daro to express.

ThbW, L.I. Fair.?This niuch-tolked

as a majority of the articles wcro donated.
Tho feature of Friday night was the pre?

military companies of Boston. The fol?
lowing letter from Governor Chamberlain
CoEUMBLi, S. C, April 1, 1875.
James (f. Porter, Esq., Secretary W. L.
I.?Dem: Sin: I havo received your in?
vitation to mo to be present at tho Fair
of the Washington Light Infantry, in
Charleston, on Friday evening nefxt My
health, I regret to Bay, will not allow me
to accept your invitation, but I thank
you most sincerely for the invitation, and
particularly for the very kind terms in
which it is couohed. I feel a special in?
terest in the success of your fair", as an
occasion which promises to draw out in
fresh and gratifying manifestations the
sympathy which tho two great sections of
our country fool for eaoh other. In some '
private and public ways, it has been my
privilege to add my efforts to yours in j
securing from the citizens of Boston some
expressions of their good will on this oc?
casion towards tho people of Charleston.
I am gratified to perceive from your let?
ter, that there is one ground of union and
harmony on which we can all stand?
fidelity and devotion to the welfare of
the State of South Carolina. I intend to
persevere to the end in that course which
has thus far mot your kind approval, and
I shall hope to receive in the future, as I
havo thus far, the earnest support of all I
men in our State who regard public of-1
flee and power as a trust to be held and |
exercised for tho good of all tho people.
I trust your fair will be crowned with
complete succors?success in its imme?
diate objects, and success in those
broader objects which it seems destined,
under a kind Providence, to promote.
Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
D. H. CHAMBERLAIN.
The Chicago Inter-Ocean figures up the
indebtedness of Mexico to the Unitod
States as $50,000,000 for American pro- ]
perty destroyed by "greasers," and Ame?
rican lives to the value of $12,500,000,
extinguished by the sania parties. This
total of $62,500,000 the Inter-Ocean thinks
might be very easily paid by deeding to
tho United States Sonora, Chihuahua,
Coahuila, New Leon, and a few other bits
of territory Korth of the Rio Grande de
Santiago. This looks very plausible, but
then it should bo remembered, that there
never was such a feeling against the tmns
fer of any territory to a foreign power, in
Mexico, as exists at the present moment.
Barring a few local tumults, Mexico is in I
the enjoyment of more peace than she]
has hard for a long time, public improve')
inents of a valuable nature are going on,
and it is not likely that she will consent
to strip off some of hor best territory.
Mr. Editor: Having been requested

? Plain Words for the People. --When
broken down in health, strength and
spirits, it is not necessary that we should
ask a medical man whether ah in vigorunt
is necessary. Common sense tells us
that it is. The only question to bo de?
cided is, what the invigorant shall be. A
sbindard tonic and restorative, which has
been many years before the public, and
in which millions of the intelligent classes
repose the fullest faith, seems, in a* case
like, this, to present the strongest claims |
to the confidence of the prudent invalid.
Hostetter's Stomach Bitters may be truly
said to possess these high recommenda?
tions. Its triumphant progress during
a period of twenty years, its present
popularity, and tho uniform success
which attends its use in indigestion,
nervous debility, biliary complaints,
fever and ague, and all ailments which
depress the physical system and enervate
the mind, entitle it to the rank of a stan?
dard national specific. It is regarded in
that light by tue community at large,
and hundreds of thousands of both sexes
resort to it at this season as a preventive
of that numerous and harassing class of |
diseases which take their rise from the
miasmatic winds and vapors of spring.

?We shall see what we shall see:"
"The can-can has come and tho can?
can has gone, and the damage has not
been very great, except in a pecuniary
I point of view. Those who expected to
soe something very naughty wero disap?
pointed?as they deserved to be. It is a
poor show, which is making a great deal
of money by pretendingto give very in?
decent performances. The proprietor is
?laying the artful little game of the
unkee peddler, who induced'the bad
dish boys of the villago to buy a number
of copies of Young's 'Night Thoughts,'
under the delusion that it was a vicious
book, by showing them a picture in it of
'Contemplation,' representing a young
lady scantily attired, taking a walk by
star-light. The more the can-can is
abused the better business it does, and
the manager can afford to pay editors
handsomely for denunciatory articles."
