The -questlori Weso'nsibility for
burning Columbia has never been

the burning of that city were an
Ixoclatedi ease, the question of responsmi

into~ consIderation all of Shermxan's

should convince the most skeptical
N~orthern mind that the load is on his
*shoulders. During the Confederate
retreat and Shernman's advance, every
ginhouso in the country was burned.
Every depot and store, and the towns
of Blackvilie, Lexington and Winne
boro, ao well as Columbia, were all
partially dest royed. Conmmon sense
teaches that whoever burned theme
burned Columbia too. When it is
universally conceded that Sherman's

when all the citizens of Columbia also
unanimously testify that It burnied
their city, where has hie a peg on which

A Letter Froin a Fanner.
Mr. 0. H. c Afaster:
DEAR SIR-As I have a few leisure
moments at my disposal, I will embrace
the opportunity in writing a reply to
your letter of no date, and send you a
summary swatemnent of soine existing
remarks based thereon.
To give anything like satisf: etory
answers to your interogatories, I
would have to assume the province of
the political economist, fortify every
position and substantiate every propo
sition by an array of official statistics;
but as I have not the ability of the for
mer, and not in possession of the lat
ter, I send you the Ibilowing cridely
expressed opinions for what they are
I presume you do not intond your
questions to be considered a simply to
be directed to a distinctive class or to
certain classes, but to be applied to the
entire ettlzenship of the State as a iit.
As individuals taken collectively con
stitute a cla'ss, so classes are but tile
component factors of the composite
whole, as applied to a people or popu
lation. I use the word class as applied
to calling. and occupations. Some
persons of a class may be prospering,
and others at the same time, fair more

the.God of nature has made
Many erde ofmnyknd.
It ls diflicult to glie a correct fixed
ed meaning to thes word prosperous,
unider all circumnstances, or rather to
establish a siugle stanidard by which,
at all times and under all conditions,
to measure or balance the meaning
wvhen applied to the status of the same
class or even nation. Different stand
ards are to be used in the estimate for
the several nations, and a variable cr1
terion must even be the test for diR
similar circumstances. One nation
may be declared not prosperous and
another quite so. Yet wvhen comp
ed the one with the other, it is palpa
bly evident that the 011e pronounced
not to be prosperons is fair in advance
of the other in wealthy piower, popula
tion anid all that gces to contribute to
the greatness ofa people, and vet (lhe

they were not comnpared one with the
other, but each within itself and to
itself, and by a standard fixed by a
reckoning up of their respectivye sur
roundings and peculiar circum istances
at the time and the standard of the
one did not require the same niumber,
and same measurement of the points
to be scored. Persons may be com
pared with other persons of the same
class, or one class may with propriety
be compared with the same class of
another nationality, but good sense
forbids the reverse. In all countries,
and at occasional periods, an abnor
mal state of things exists, and indi
cates an ulcerous condition of (lie body
politic. The legal (class as a whmole)
is niot prospecrous wvhen a litigious
spirit stalks through the land, when
lawlessness is fas/aionablc, crime runis
riot and the sheriff is kept busy, and
barratrv can be indulged in. The M.
D.'s (of all colleges) h ave their hands
full whenci wide-spread epidemics pie
vail, when the scapel, the bandage and
the splint have frequently to be resort
ed to. The merchants and store keep
ers are in full blow when such a condi
tion in society exists as will admit the
widest margin for profit, w hen mner
chandcise can be marked and sold1 at
orbitant percentage, and the necessity
of purchasers is such as will permit the
practice of extortion. There the ac
*Lumulationl of thie dollar' Is the syno
nym of prosperity-casting aside as
trivial such items as honor, integrity,
reputation, wvear and tear of brain,
and anxiety of mind. Buit tis is ai'i

im Inclined to answer your question
5y saving we are a prospering people.
And I think nio other nation or peo
pie under the sun has shown such
wonderful recuperative powers (not

I know, we have the class "croakers"
aimongst us, and we have "Alicawbers"
who sit down and wait for "some
thing go->d to turn up." These have
been lett out of the estimate.
As to the second interrogatory,
"What will make then more so?" I
will respond, Yankee-like-iuterroga
tively. They generally ansver a ques
tion by asking onme. Are our' people
extravagant? As a geineral thing, do
