Alclegratn to the "News and Courier"
from Orangeburg reports tho killing of
a soldier belonging to the garrison; by a
Capt Gallaber, on the 2d. This is a
cruel hoax on our friends, and a vile
slander on our town. Wo have no gar
rison fortunately at this place.
DEATH OF HON. J. L. OPR.
The subject of this melancholy notice
died on the 5th, at St. Petersburg, Rus
sia, where he had been sent to represent
the United States Government. The de
cided abilities of this prominent leader,
whether as tho champion of Southern
rights, or tho supporter of a Northern
tyranny, are too familiar for rehearsal
here. His career is closed and over
tho acts of his life, we cast the veil with
THE ROAD TO PERDITION.
Is paved with good resolutions, and
South Carolina financially reviewed, is
bolting toward that goal at railroad
speed. Tho radical defenso in covering
its shame said, the white poople of the
State were willfully blind to the light of
reason, and deaf to the argument of stub
born facts, evolved from an irrcsistnble
force of progressive Liberty. Prccon
viewed notions, and wounded pride were
contesting against enlarged views, which
sooner or later would overwhelm all op
position, and convert the fiercest enemies
to a friendly recognition. Such sophis
try pleased the car of the world, and the
new departure was hailed as the political
martyr. A very brief review will bring
us to the conclusion, (if any are mad
enough to defend the policy of the ene
mies of honesty and peace) that the rot
tencst hulk, with the most drunken pilot;
is nB much entitled to confidence, as is
tbis dynasty of perjured, faithless and
soulless government. Its promises arc as
voluminous, as its villainies arc glaring.
The first breach of faith began with the
birth of tbe party in the State. Thanks
be to God, the conception was elsewhere ;
Pestilence when brought upon some un
toward wind is dread, but when the at
mosphere is purged, the cause for danger
is removed. Tbis is our only hope, that
this distinct, peculiar, and wholly segre
gated plague may die out for want of
food (money). Stop that supply, and
the scourge vanishes. A desire "to re
deem the honor of the State, and educate
her citizens," induced these philanthro
pists to rate an assessment, and afterward
increase it three fold, after a plan of
stealage called "Equalization." The tax
was paid, and Mantalini picked up the
gold and silver, and tho deficiency went
into the "sinking fund." Military bills
to show up the many lined "hero of Fort
Sumtcr," were created, and tho appropri
ation for til esc, went in the wake of the
precedents. "Land purchasing bureaus"
robbed the State of hundreds of thousands'
and mado autocruts of beggars. The
legislature was an auction hou tc, where
every bill had its figures. State bonds
were sdrreptitimirdy sold by the officers of
the State at one half their face valuation
to'.raise money for themselves. In a
word, South Carolina, its property and
all (except it.s eons who were, neither to
be bought nor hoodwinked) was tossed
into tho political hoppor, aud the meal
wasqueitly taken as tell, while tho husk
was left for tho owners. Now we have a
liow tax to pay outstanding State debts,
'and a now call is made ihr logal talent to
save us from robbery.' It may bo worth
the attempt, but wo aro credulous;?
Arguo to tho Sphynx, or preach, meta
physics to a pump, and you will affect
about as much, as attempting to influence
a radical Court Supremo or otherwise,
by talking about injustice, or debating
questions Of eqhity. Adopt if it can be
done 8?mo plan to check this flow of
money into their pockets,"f and you will
be as ireo of radical rulers in a month,
as (Hibernia is said to be) Of snakes.. ** '
THE INDIAN POLICY.
The hue and cry is extermination, for
what; Is it that the life of the unfortu
nate Gen. Canby is worth moro^than the
entire race of Modocs, men, women aud
children. If so; what has made tho ex
istence of the Indian so contemptible, aud
the value of a solitary white man so ap
preciated. Gen. Sherman face to face
with red Jack, unless backed by the
steel wall which has always made him as
bold as he has been cruel, may have set
his teeth fast, ere ho had dared to speak
tho .death knoll of the Indian race. . If
prudence would have suggested this
much for his personal safety, should not
mercy have tempered his ire of justice.
The act of the Indian Chief was base aud
treacherous, but review tho base and
treacherous, policy of the government
which was represented in Gen. Canby,
and say if the uncivilized American saw
aught to admire, in the tinselled type of
the civilized American. Tho worm
will sting the foot that presses it, and
red Jack counting the cost, made tho
fearful issue. Back, back, before the
steady tramp of "Westward ho" he fell,
no hunting grounds for his living, no
resting place for his dead. Enlighten
ment to him was administered through
the rum bottle; civilization taught. him
that from behind a crevice of tho rock,
he could hurl a bullet to the brain of his
betrayer. His bounty was doled out in
beads and poisoned whiskey, his soul wus
preached to on one side by the missiona
ry revealing an accountability, and on
the other by a cunning trader who made
the wild Indian, a wilder devil. Per
plexed, deceived, and maddened, he was
not won over, but sank deeper and deep
er under tho influence of the tricky white
man, and hurling the lio of defianco to
his teeth, his wild heroism was aroused,
and he slew both the innocent and the
guilty. Better had the government
measured a modicum of its Southern
policy to the Indian, i. e. counting the
inferior its protege,, then it might
have been spared the disgrace of Sher
man's vindictive howl, and at least have
been consistent in its former dealings
with its subjects. Here the rule is in
hands' and hearts blacker than the In
dians. There for party sake cruelty will
?be practised. Treat the Indian as a man
and his savage breast will respond a
kindly throb. Rob hint, and degrade
him by putting his scanty subsistence in
the hands of cormorant rumselling agents
and you teach him that neither his, or
the life of such tools of tho government
is worth the sparing.

HO ! FOR ENTERPRISE.
Wc know of no town more gifted by
nature or more calculated to repay the
rambler in his search after pleasant views
and quiet spots wherein1 to ruminate than
our village, and future city, Orangeburg.
In every direction upon the outskirts
of our town, nature's solitudo i.*> relieved
by enterprise, both of natives and immi
grants, and new buildings meet the eye
on every hand. Home are dwellings and
some nre factories, some lb? comfort and
some for money making, some for enjoy
ment und some for employment.
Wc like to write of these pleasant
things and like to read of there being
elsewhere. To write of them i3 a task
affording the most pleasure, as their pre
sence amongst us shows that there is in
our midst both ability and willingness to
afford patronage and encouragement to
domestic, as well as attract foreign cn'ter
Among these busy spots that lie near
at hand, none can interest one more fully
than the Shingle Factory of Messrs. Al
drieh &? Co. An undertaking of recent
birth, possessed of all tho elomeuts re
quisite for permanent success.
The location will repay the rambler,
from its picturesque position on the hank
of the river, while the piles of cypress
blockss, the busy breath of the steam,
the strokes of saw, and whirring of the j
wheels, together with the methodical
movements of fifton or twenty hands em
ployed in tho works, afford plenty of
thought to feed his mind, and make him
wonder how in so small a space and time
such a quantity of labor cart bo accom
plished, and in such unique stylos.
The Engine is of twenty-five horse
power. It runs two saws and a planing
machine; and turns out 12,000 shingles
per day of ten working hours.
These shingles are never allowed to
exceed fivo inches in width, which pre
vents warping or splitting. They arc
sawed:of Block cypress, the best material
in the world for the purpose, and which
elsewhcro can only bo got at in ponds on
tho highland. Hero it can be obtained
in the river swamp at spring tides, and
is brought to the ' factory in flat-boats, j
and at the above rato of consumption it1
can furnish . material for eight or ten
What theso gentlemen may charge for
their shingles, wo do not know, but withNj
such facilities and a liberal patronage, it
would require but a small profit to bring
them in a fortune.
