BY THE GOVERNOR:

Executive D.viwrtment, f
CoLWiiniA, S C, October 0, 1878. j
Whereas, by tbo Constitution of this
State, it is. required that "The General
Assembly shall provido for an annual tax,
sufficient to defray the estimated cxpunsos
of the State for each year ;"
And whereas, it is by law provided that
the Comptroller-General shall on or beforo
the 15th day of November annually, give
notice to the County Auditors of the rates
per centum of taxation authorized by law to
be levied for the various State purposes ;
And whereas the General Assembly at its
last session omitted to provido for suou
annual tax, for the fiscal year to commence
on the first day of November noxt, by reason
whereof the Comptroller.General is unablo
to give notice to the County Auditors of
such annual tax, at the time such notice is
by law required to oe given;
^"And whereas, by the decision of tho
Supreme Court of the State, the Comp
trollor-Qoneral is required to levy a rat e per
centum of taxes to pay tho interest upon
certain classes of bonds, which are a part
of the public debt of tho Stato. and to give
notico of such lovy to tho County Auditor
on or before the 15th day of Novomber noxt;
And whereas, it is deemed important to
tho welfare- of the State, in view of this
dec ision of tho Supremo Court, that tho
General Assembly should take into immedi
ate consideration tho condition of tho public
debt of tho State, and should so provido as
that whatever taxes arc be levied to pay tho
interest thcreun shall be levied at tho samo
s that ut which thegenoral State levy.,
lived to bo made ; ?
And whereas, the facts above recited pre
sent an extraordinary occasion, which, in
tho judgment of the Executive, mukus it
necessary to convene the Goneral Assembly
at a day earlier than the period provided
for the regular annual session thereof.
Now, therefore, I, Franklin J. Moses,
Jr., Governor of the State of South Carolina,
by virtue of tho power vested in me by Sec
tion lt't, Article HI of the Constitution of
the State, do issue this my Proclamation,

Oran?ed?r? Times:?Euelosed. find
'$2.00 for another ycar'a subscription, as
I see by a Vi on the margin of wrapper*
which reminds me that my subscription
is out. Orangeburg District was onco
my home, but now I live , in the Lone
Stai State where I have been since 1855.
Well do I recollect tho cold frosty
morniug in Feb. thnt I bado good byo to
the frieuds and acquaintances of my
school-days in th.e old village, and took
my course westward with an old friend
as far as Blackvillc, whero I took the
cars for .Montgomery, Ala., thence by
steamboat to New Orleans, thence up the
Misrissippi and Bed River to Shroveport,
La., then stage, ox wagon und afoot, to
within 1? miles to where I uow reside.
Three years after I came to Texas, I
bought the place I am now living on,
improved it, and notwithstanding the
war and a few Texas drouths, I have suc
ceeded in making a good living, nnd
have gathered around me enough to sat
isfy me that if those young meu in South
Carolina (and I know there are a good
many of them) could be induced to come
out to Texas, nnd use even ordinary in
dustry, they would, in a few years, bo
comparatively independent and prosper
ous Texas offers inducements to every
class of immigration, and of every profes
sion. Wo have rich lands, both tim
bered and Pinivie. Towns and cities
springing up all over the State, and Rail
roads being constructed now more rapid
ly than in auy other Southern State, and
will soon be connected with the other
States by several Railroads. XVe have
a majority of white people in this State,
and the most of them are Democrats, and
Avo will soon get clear of the last vestige
50,000 majority in the State, and at the
next election, on the 2d December next,
wo will rid ourselves of Radicals, carpet
baggers, scalawags, ?fcvcs, rascals and
defaulters. This is a white man's State,
a poor man's State, a young man's State;
and here 1 would say, that girls stand
the bet-t chance to get married out here
of any place I know. As this is a grow
ing and prosperous btatc, everything
partakes of that disposition, and all arc
moving on together in a happy style to
that great destination that seems to await
the people of this State. There is one
thing that man: our happiness, however;
I mean those of us from the old Palmet
to State, and there are a good many of
us out h<*re?and that is, the sorrow we
feel when we think of our old State
being ruled by negroes, thieves, Radicals
and rascals, and some of them; too, to
the manor born ; poor South Carolina is
ruined, manacled, trodden down'in the
dust, bound liana and foot, and strangu
lated by the grasp of the oppressor and
: desecrator. When I think of my happy
boyhood days, and view the State of af
fairs that exist there now, I turn away
with a heavy, sorrowful heart, and deeply
sympathize with all the good people in
my native State. How much better off
would a great many of the white people
be, if they would eonio out to Texas,
where there is a plenty of good rich land,
good health, fat beef, a plenty of deer,
turkey, fish, nnd a plenty of everything
th.it makes man happy and comfortable,
and above all, a good State government;
good laws, and the banner Stale of tho
South and South West. Democratic to
tho core. Young and old men think of
these things and come along, there is
plenty for you to do here. You can get
into employment anywhere at good wa
ges, say from 12 to 25 dollars gold per
month, owing to the business you may
follow. 1 know you bato to leave our
old Stuto, but she cannot help you now,
and the time has come when you must
look to your own interest, and my word
for it, there is no better place or country
to make a good living, and purlmps n
fortune, if you will uso tho necessary ex
ertions than Texas.

Religious liberty appears to oxist in
theory rather than in practice in Turkey,
and the Syrians complain that in this
respect they are worse off than the Egyp
tians, who nru allowed privileges denied
I to themselves. For instance-, a Tract on

Truth was lately published in Beyrout
and its circulation was at once forbidden,
and yet it is allowed circulation in Egypt.
In Damascus there is a Medjlis-ef'-Alu'
arif, a Moslem Court of Inquisition, which
includes most, of the young TJlema of tho
city. They have a president, secretary,
inspectors, &c. Their duty la to pje-'
vent the circulation of books and doc
trines contrary to the received opinions
?in fact, to make an Index Expurgato
rious. Mahmoud Eflendi Ham zu, tho
finest scholar and gentleman in Damas
cus, refused the presidency, which has
lately been resigned by Mahmoud el
Tibez-el-Furedz. The society, however,
is very active, and the correspondent of
the Levant Herald at Damascus com
plains that some of its inspectors have
already examined all the Arabic books
possessed by him. In Egyt books circu
late freely, bearing to the people the re
sults of modern research; while in Da
mascus, the most ancient of cities, the
inhabitants glory in the dignity of dul
ness,-and occasionally grow excited over
discoveries 500 years old. It would bo
interesting to observe the effect on Lon
don of a similar Court of Inquisition to
that which exists at Damascus. A hint
of its consequence is given in the pastor
al of the Roman Catholic Bishops, who
tell their flocks that much of tho litera
ture of tho times is unfit to be in their
homes. We nro supposing, however,
that all classes were represented in this
Court. In this case the institution
would, no doubt, but a veto on tho circu
lation of many interesting m.vcls that
now engross the attention of the youth
of this country to the exclusion of weigh
tier matters. The circulating libraries
would close their shutters, nud society
be duller, but wiser, than it is at pre
ters; 775,092 words ; 81,173 verses 1,197
chapters, and 00 books. The word Lord
occurs 1855 times. The word reverend
occurs but once, which is in the 9th
verse of the 111th Psalm; The middle
verse is the 8th verse of the 118th Psalm.
The 21st verse of the 7th*chapter of Ez
ra contains nil tho letters of the alpha
bet except the letter j. The finest chap
ter to rend is tho 20th chapter of the
Acts of the Apostles. The 19th chapter
of 2d Kings and the 37th chapter of
Isaiah arc alike. Tho longest verse is
the 9th verse of the 8th chapter of Es
ther. The shortest verse is tho 35th
verse of tho 11th chapter of St John.
The 8th, 15th, 21st and 31st verse of tho
l()7th Psalm are alike, Each verse of
tho 136th Psalm ends alike. There are
no words or names of moro than six syl
XUay The conduct of England toward
criminals could be copied .by America
with profit. Home time since four of our
fellow-citizens, unable to get an houest
living in New York, sped to Uurope,
and laid plans by which they hoped to
open the Bank of England as easily as n
man may open an oyster and extract the
surprised bivalve. All went well until
?they were caught,. No New York
lawyers were present to defend them,
and no New York jury to decide on
their case. Justice was even-handed,
and the scutonco was imprisonment for
life. They know that in England the
words "for life," do not mean, as here,
until a new governor is elected, but "un
til they arc dead." Well, thero are oth
er speculators in bank stock and coin
whom we could easily sparo to English
justice and Englis'i prisons.

A Struggle with a Dovil-Fish.
Air. Chas. II. Braincrd, of Boston, in
writing to the Scientific American about
specimens of the devil fish, relates this
interesting incident: Tho strength
which these creatures possess is almost
beyond Amprehcnsion, as is evinced by
what tool^placo when my pet was cap
tured. He had seized hold of a subma
rine diver, at work in tho wreck of a
sunken steamer off tho coast of Floridn.
Tho man was a powerful Irishman, who
claimed to weigh three hundred pounds.
His sizo and build fully verified his state
ment, and, to uso his own language, "the
basto landed on top of my shoulders aud
pinned my arms tight. I felt my atmor
and myself being cracked into ft jelly."
It seems that he was just about Ij^uygjj

tho fish by one of ito Wrl^ibgU^lwr
tried to pull it off, but could nqt. ot^ljk
the power of a single, one of.tha .nuckoni.
The fish was only removed .by being dealt

truth must he granted that- his "nonde-ol
