We further recommend that the
County Commissioners (10 sell such

not necessary for County purposes, and
that the proceeds, or so nimueh ais may
be nec'ssary,be applied to the enlarge

We further recommend that the Coi
ty Commissioners do have the well in

more shelving put lp in the Cleik's

records of that oflIce; that they htive
erected a privy for ie convenience of

Piekens county, or who hLave over
drawn their salaries, ald I think the
pelliteltial. t h proper j)pace lfor them,
let them be who they m Iv. But there
is one laIse inl the editorial referred to
whieh I think : little too h:rd onl thel

MR. EDIro: The citizens q
Coluinmbia use all their influence anl
efforts, besides* all their persua
sions, to induce the members of
the Legislature to vote appropria
tions for the Lunatic Asylum, Pen
itent iary, Canal, and for the South
Ca-olina University ; andi then to
cap (lie elinax, the City Council
grants licenses to bar-roons anl
cock-pits right at the very doors of
the University. Suppose the bar
room keepers want to get rich out
of the Students. We think any
further appropriations should be
withheld, and if the city of Co
lumbia will grant authority to its
own eitizens ,-o sell liquor and have
cock-pits, then the Legislature
should take the matter it) hand,
and pass a law prohibitlog the sal
of any liquori within a given dis
tance of the University, or vote no
appropriation to it.
