This seems li? be a trilling matter,
but it moans a great deal moro than
-mue suppose. Although none will
acknowledge that they uro opposed
to education, it h a fai t thal some
men will du very little towards
helping the young men of this conn
try to obtain it. Much Is being

tutions of thc State; we bear that
tin University is n rich man's col
lege; they fay that thc appropri
ation is enormous. Now wc ask
tho question, are these objections
Tho object of the University is
not to make lawyers, doctors or
or mochales, nor is it to educate
a particular class of young men;
but this grand old institution, that
bas ever bern the pride and glory
of South Carolina, owes its exis
tence to the fact that there have
been those who believed, that a lib
eral education was a blessing.
This University ls ti school frc"
and open to every white hoy in thc
.State. No one i-? compelled to
study latin or greek, or anything
else, hut the choice ol' stud:. -; ls

to give instruction In science

Messrs J. J. PLUSS and J. C

So ta. as wo have been aide t<?
ascertain, the road will certainly
be built from Columbia ti? New
bery, as tho necessary amount re
quired for tho grading has alroay
been subscribed end Charleston bas
promised to complete it without
the help or any capitalist outside that
city. What diroctlon it will take '
at Newbery, and whether we are to
get tho benefit of this groat enter
prise, now remains willi us. At ;
the next meeting of thc directors, :
a corps <>f engineers will be engag
ed and the work of grading com- '
menced. Spartnnburg and Glenn

term I nod to have the road, but
their claims do not in th?? least con

If tho road comes through Jacks
in this County, that town-hip to
gether with thc town of I.aurons
can easily grade tho road through
our territory. We can easily do
this and if the people decide to do
so, they can gel the road. If not ;
weean only look on while il i- be
lng built around us. Now, the
question i-1. what are wo todo.?
The greai advantage of this, or
any other railroad, t>> .lacks town
ship, i- evident. No argument is
needed to convince the people of
this section that their lands would
bc enhanced and tho general pros
perity of this section promoted by
having railroad facilities. So far
as Laurens \a concerned, unless we
have sonic enterprise of this kind
their h danger of being a gain bot
tled up. We must reach the coa l
by a new and ind?pendant railroad
and such a road thc C. N. A L. will i
he. It i.- liol worked in the inter- 1
cst of capitalists bul isa home en

that H. M. Smith, tho vandal who
