-Oeneral Kennedy for lieutenant.
General John 1). Kennedy, of Ker
- aw, has been mentioned for Lieuten
aut-Governor in 1880. A better so
lectlon could not be made. Though
yet a young man, General Kennedy
has served the State with distinction
alike in war and in the political arena.
As far back as 1868 he stumped the
State for Seymour and Blair, and
since then, in every emergency, lie has
promptly responded, with a zeal that
knows no fatigue and an eloquence
that carries firm conviction. In 1876
he was constant in his attendance upon
the executive committee, and in 1878,
as the chairman of that body, he bore
the Democratic banner himself from
tie mountains to the seaboard. Though
he has never received any reward com
mensurate with his services, his pa
triotism has never faltered, and he
has labored as earnestly for the suc
cess of the party as he could posaibly
have done for himself. The State has
ik opportunity both of "rewarding
past services," and "securing the best
man for the office" by electing Goner
al Kennedy Lieutenant Governor.
The Columbia Canal.
The adoption by the Senate of the
Hoilse bill iW referring to the Colum
bia canal is much to be desired. The
hill may not be the best thing that
could be done, but it Is the best thing
that can be done under existing cir
enithstances. Briefly stated the bill
to as follows: A company of North
ern capitalists are to erect a dami
across the Congaree and to make a
'ciual two hundred feet wide, capable
of aff'ording transportation to boats.
About ton thousand horse power can
be developed, equal to the water pow
er of Lowell, Massachusetts, of which'
the State is to receive fifteen hundred
horse power, said to be worth ten
dollars per horse power per annum.
The State is to furnish two hundred
und fifty convicts, or as near that num
ber as pracicable, to be fed by the
contractors. The contractors are to
give bond in the sum of a hundred
thousand dollars, for the faithful per
formance of the work, and are to com
plete it withhi three years. These are
generally the provisions, but they
may be altered somewhat if the bill
Objections are urged that the State
Is doing the work and will make a
free gift to the contractors, but espe
cially that the enterprise is merelv
local and only Columbia will be
l e ; ?W Ituius(~ have been
demnst rated ere this that the Stale
* of itself will not undertake te work,
and the water powver, as it now
stanids, is not worth a cent. The con
tractors will feed the convicts, assume
all the supervision of the enterprnise,
and wvill turn over to the State water
power said to be worth three hundred
thousand dollars at least. This is by
nio meanms a bad bargain of itself, but
the secondary benefits will largely
swell the sum. For we hoold that the
improvement of this water power and
the construction of a broad and dcep
canal will greatly redound to the
general prosperity of the State. In
the discussion the canal seems to have
been overlooked, whereas it will per
mit water navigation and thuns facili
tate the transportation of cotton from
some of the largest producing counties
in the State. It is just as important
to complete a linik in the navigation of
the Broad, Congaree and Bantee
Itivers. as to construct a railroad.
Much more beneflcial to the State
would it be to open this canal than to
build the Greenwood and Augusta
Itallroad to divert a heavy trade from
Charleston and Columbia to Augusta.
We would be pleased to learn how
such a road is to benefit the eastern
* section of the State. And yet the
western counties clamor against the
canal, because they erroneously be
* lieve it will do them no good. There
is no consistency in this. Every rail
moad of imiportancee passing through
thme State raldiates from Columbia as a
common centre. Whatever Improves
Columbia improves the country, and
the towns connected with it. Estab
sh large factories in Columbia, and
on overy bale of cotton manufhotured
there will be a double gain, the freight
on the cotton and the freight back on
the cloth. Again, the disbursement
of several millIon of dollars a year in
Columbia to 'operatives, is a direct
gain ;to the whole State. Could
Lowell be cut out from the heart of
Massachusetts and located on thec
banks of the Congaree without injur
ngall Massachusetts and benfiting all
South Carolina? Time will be re
quired to build up a second 'Lowell
here. But wvhen the accessibility o:
* the cotton is considered, and the mild
ness. of the climate, which never closem
the factories by freezing, feetories are
a fboegone conclusion. It has beet

Editor. Ec/ister: The local notice
In thO Register of the 5th Instant, re

spectfilly ask the privilege of adduc
n additioaiil thebts aund tigures on the
subject. The road seems to claim) to
have always charged ia dollar andi a

to Columia, and since its 'victory''
in the Circuit Court, to have, with
maiignatinity to a Iiilleii Ibe, volini
tarily red(ulcled its rates all alone the
linoe. The rates have indeed becel' re
duced from whmt they wore ill Juntte
last, but they still greatly exceed the
ta-il' in operatioi ber'ore the war,
when the road Inade mI oney and paid
handsome dividends. It wNa.S proved,
in the case of Elder & Co. agaiist tho 1
road, and not controverted, that pre- i
viouis to tle war tihe ch arge oi cotton
froin Winnsboro never exceeded the t
limit prescribed for hecavy articles
seventy-nine cents on a bile of four'
liil(i.rd and fifty poinds--while the
limit on cotton as an article of mvas
ur-eient would be one dollar alt
niniietv-nlinie and i Ihalf' conts. A'ter
the war, whlen tile courts wero lax,
the road undoubtedly exceQvled its
charter limit on certaii articles, and,
a,s We hold, also oil cotton. The t
average rate charged was a dollar and
a half fori a bale of 4150 pounds 'ir loss, I
extra chiar'e beilnr miade for extra
Weight, but loo for ex tra bulk. We
hohi numberless receipts that prove t

with oilier roads. The freight from

some say, for we cannot obtain the

claims to have reduced freights to the
