Vice-president Wilson.?An exchange
Kays Vioo-President "Wilson, who is now
in Now York, has boon interviewed, and
talked very fully and freely about his
recent tour in tho South. He said that
he was v.-rv snrdiiillv r??tl lileosontlv r
coived by all classes, and the opinion is
entertained by him that the era of recon?
ciliation, that stop beyond reconstruc?
tion, is rapidly dawning. Without say
ing bo, ho evidently traces the increase
of good feeling to a corresponding in?
crease in material prosperity and fresh
spirit of industry?industry of tho
Northern kind, which means close atten?
tion to business. The crops are generally
of excellent promise, and that helps
.everything. Mr. Wilson believes that
race prejudices are dying out, and that
the relations between white and black
are becoming more friendly and practi?
cal. Politically, Mr. Wilson says that
there can be no question that the South
expects an alliance with the Democracy
of the North, which may give them tho
victory in tho next Presidential election,
but he predicts that there will bo no
violence?the Southern loaders resorting
to conciliation of the colored vote. He
"I think the Southerners are going to
act with a good deal of tact, and win
power if they can. How they will use I
that power remains to bo seen. I want
the country to remain in the hands of
those who carried it through the great [
struggle, led it to liberty, and are sound
on the general issues that were then in?
volved. This appears to mo to be abso?
lutely necessary for the good of this
'Country, at least till such time as tho
country, both South and North, gets
sound on the general questions that
affect the interests of all. "What we do
want is to have tho country safe. We
cannot afford to have any doubts about
this, if possible, but shall make it a
matter of certainty. I have no doubt
? that the Southern politicians are going
to make a tremendous effort to carry the ]
country at the next election."
The Now York World inquires why it
is that we, who furnished tho looms of
England last year with 875,000,000
poundsof cotton, valued at 4136,952,187;
who ore the equals of her population in
industrious qualities; whose country has
-industrial advantages superior to hers.
?are unable to compete with her in neu?
tral markets in the sale of manufactured
cotton goods? As the Morrill tariff in
1861 gave rise to our present exaggerated
system of protection, and as since that
date commercial prosporty has been far
less pronounced in this country than it
was during the previous decade, the
inevitable conclusion is that our pro?
tective system has proved an injury
rather than a benefit. It is, therefore,
assumed that with a more moderate
tariff we would more rapidly become
tho peer of England in manufacturing
enterprise. If we enter into competition
we must do so on equal tariff terms.
The natural advantages are altogether in
our favor, tin/ raw material and the con?
sumers both being in our midst.
The "Ibbepbessible" Aoain.?The ex
Land Commissioner is once more on the

New York, June 10, 1875.
Editor Daily Phcsnix, Columbia, S. C.:
Please, call for the publication of the
complaint and affidavits in my case, so
that the people may see exactly what I
am charged with and by whom, and
whether on information* and belief. I
can only judge of the grounds of com?
plaint from the Associated Press de?
spatch, to wit: "That I defrauded the
State of a large sum of money as Land
Commissioner. Hail $M0,000." Now,
Mr. Editor, I know I did not, and some
one has committed perjury. I am guilty
or I am not. The peoplo want to know,
both North and South. Political lying
won't do. The truth is mighty and "will
prevail. I am in the dark as yet, but I
will oomo out. I stand on my own bot?
tom, and ask no favors from any quar?
ter. Some body is lying, that's all.
Who i* it? You will soon seo. Let's
have the complaint and affidavits.
Yours, respectfully, C. P. LESLIE.
Sacrifices.?The New York Sun has
ciphered out tho exact amount that
Grant has "sacrificed" by giving up his
position of Goncrai for that of President.
It finds that eight years' salary in the
former office would have given him
8108,000, while eight years' salary as
President, exclusive of perquisites, will
come to $300,000, so that it would have
taken him till 1801 to draw as much
money on tho army pay-roll as he has
drawn on tho civil list. When wo add
about $70,000 for household expenses
and such, not to mention th* railroad
passes and presents, it seem u.s though
wo had made it up to the General.
