Of Some Matter,
His haste, in order to get TnE Time*
in the hands of the public, caused our
printer, inadvertently, but entirely to
omit a paragraph of oiir salutatory, where
by our position was not so definitely
stated as we would like. After giving
our individual views, we wrote thus:
"While these are our individual views,
wcdoimt propose to use thorn any other
wise *8& as a stand-point from which to
discusWno current issues, nor in ntiy way
nggrcssivoly advocate them. AVo pro
pose to make Tin-: Times a political
journal only in so far as is our duty, to
serve the natural desire of our subscri
bers to be somewhat posted in the poli
tics of the day."
We think, that if read in connection
with our published remarks, it will take
from them such acerbity as they un
doubtedly had without it. We hope
that we have individuality enough to
meet all reasonable demands, but such
individualism in journalism amounts in
these critical times to schism Again

Bishop Howe's predecessor, the late

The Hon. J. B. Bee:: and tho South
Mr. Beck, of Kentucky, one of the
.committee on the actual condition of the
Southern States, makes the explicit state
ment of tho debt of the nine Southern
States, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida,
Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina,
South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas,
"amounting in aggregate to tho sum of
$^20,000,01)0. Not one dollar for Con
federate wnr'debt; and nothing to show
from many of the States, for millions im
Ipued by State isnd county."
In tho nervous and pointed language
oi the gcntlemtn of Kentucky, wo pre
sent the. record of the Governors, chief
magistrates of these devoted StAtes:
"In North Carolina, Governor Holden
was successfully impeached for high
crimes and misdemeanors; he is now edi
tor of tho Government organ at Wash
ington City. Governor Bullock, of (Geor
gia, resigned his position, and fled from
the State to prevent certain conviction
for like offences. Governor Smith, of
Alabama, retired Jn disgrace, proved to
have officially plundered his State by
illegal and corrupt issue &?Ov),??() of her
bomb to the Alabama and Chatta iooga
Kail Road Company. Scott, of South
Carolina, proved by bis own partisans to
be a public plunderer, who, if he escapes!
impeachment, must buy bis corrupt Leg
islature. Reed, of Florida, wilfully rob
bing his State by illegally placing mil
lions of hcrlmnds in the hands of such a
thief as I/ittlefiohl is shown to be. Clay
ton, of Arkansas, charged by a Radical
grand jury for the most flagrant offences.
Wnrmonth, of Louisiuua, if half that is
said against him by his own party friends
be true, is W.orjfe than any of them;
Brownlow. while in Tennessee, made a
pandemonium of that State; Davis of
Texas, a tyrant und usurper, who is de
nounced by his people regardless of party
as a fiend in human form, whose orders
and nets are a disgrace to American civil
station?these arc he men placed by Con
gress over seven millions people in nine
once free ana independent States; men
who arc loathed hud execrated by the
people whose rights, liberty and honor it
was their duty to protect; some have
been overtaken, the others will be. Hated
and despised, their only refuge, if they
can escape the penitentiary, seems to be
in the Senate of the United States."
Who over heard of a Republic, entitled
to that name, or of a free or self-govern
ment, where a portion of the people,
while held to citizenship and taxation,
were denied equal rights and placed under
baas, pains and disabilities ? And yet
this is the actual condition of affairs in

By request of a business firm in this
place, we would call the attention of the
South Carolina Rail Road to the fact
that a shipment of flour lo them, made in
Augusta, on tho 12th insb, was put ofl
the cars at Branchville, where it was de
layed until the Kith, instead of coming
directly through. While we like to see
the entire and mutual devotion which ex
ists between Charleston and the South
Carolina Rail Road, we do not, ns a busi
ness community, appreciate such a spirit
of sacrifice on the part of the Road as
abandons our merchandise "in transitu,"
and takes the transportation all to Char
