THUKSDAY, APKILi 28* 188L
M. P. OTONNOK.
Our renders will be shocked by the!
startling intelligence of the death of]
this faithful public, servant, at his
home in Charleston on Tuesday.
The excitement of public life, and
the harassing contests to which he
was subjected during his Congress
ional career was more than .Mr. Con-,
nor could bear. Added to these
corroding ouiv.s and excitements, his
unswerviug attention to duty, and Iiis
devotion to the interests of his con
stituents, completely broke down his
(health, and at last resulted in his
death. The signs of disease were
seen in him during his canvass of
Orangeburg County in the last cam
paign. He however met all his ap
?pointments, and after the election,
took his place in Congress. But,
finding his condition growing more
critical, he, at length, came home to
die. Mr. O'Connor was a conscien
tious public man. In all his public
acts he was guided by a sense of duty.
Before the war he was several times
sent to the State Legislature. lie
was a brilliant (?rator, and, after the
war, the graces of eloquence brought
him out again into public life. His
removal from the political arena will
mark an epoch in the history of our
State. Wo know hot how bettor to
conclude this meagre notice of thi?
good ma \ t an in the language ot
.the iVcics and Courier:
* 'Surely M. V. O'Connor had not
an enemy, and the friends ho had he
(Could depend on as they could rely
on him. Always affectionate, gener
ous, tender and considerate, with a
bright, smile for every acquaintance,
and a linn, strong grasp of the hand
for every friend, his beaming #cyeami
cheery face will long, long be missed
in Charlest?n. Honored he was by
this people; loved he was by those
who know the sweet simplicity of hie
gentle, affectionate nature; remem
bered he will be as one whose whole
. s&rcttr vr&s free from the stains of
malice, euvy aud revenge, and who
leaves to those whose hearts ache for
Jiim to-day the precious memory of a
life adorned by generosity and chari
ty, and by a kindliness that never
In the United States Senate last
week, Gem M. C. Butler of our State,
happening in the course of his
speech to refer to the bargain be
tween the Republicans and (Jen.
Mahono, Gen. Burhside leaped from
his scat and in the most excited man
ner characterized the statement, as
false. It is reported that Burhside
was drunk, and on this account Geh.
Butler deelined to bandy words with
him, but corily proceeded with hb
speech at the conclusion of what he
reiterated the statement of a bar
gam. The next day Buruside, hav
ing timefor meditntion, and appeal
ing from Burnsido drunk to Burn
Hide sober, made an ample apology
in public session which was happily
accepted by Geh. Butler in the spirit
in which it was tendered. Ko one
can question Gen. Butler's bravery,
and he could well a fiord to exhibit
the calmness for which he is noted.

Editor Oringebury Times:
It appears tlmt immigrants arc
coming to South Carolina. I am
fearful that we arc not prepared to
treat them as comfortably as I hey
should be, iu Qrangeburg at least,
for we cultivate wotUiing compara
tively speaking hu t cotton, and these
people can't <*at cotton seed. No
man should apply for Iheiu unless
they are able, to furnisth good quar
ters .arid wholesomefood. If we in
duce them to come among us and
neglect -to treat them as they should
be they may leave, and the maliciousi
and false rumors circulated at the
North about us, will be believed. We
must not expect too much of these
people, remembering that they labor
under many disadvantages. They
have tw learn ?nur customs and man
ner of work, which requires time.
IIo?w to entice immigration into our
country? We must oiler good work,
wholesome food and good pay. This
will soon overcrowd us with them.
When cotton factories are establish
ed all over our land, and our fanners
learn to devote one half of their cot
ton lands tobread-stuffsthen will we
sue immigrants Hocking to on ?coun
ty. We will be prepared to prove to
the world that ours is a favored
land. But reflect, Air. Editor, n
minute. Suppose an immigrant
should come to Orniitreburi' to ex
amine our condition as farmers and
find that most of our farmers are buy
ing at this early date, North West
ern hay, corn, and meat oil time,
after having harvested 50 thousand
bnlcs of cotton. What would they
think? Sil pose Uicy should lind our1
barns full, smoke houses also, Ollr
fields cultivated with grain crops,
fat cattle Arc. What would they
think? Mr. Editor. I venture, to
give to the white fanners of our
country advice cultivate small graui
and such crops that require little
manual labor; raise horses, mules,
cattle, hogs and sheep. If factories
arcestahiishctl in our land there will
be a demand for all we can raise.
Mr. Editor, many fanners think
that Liiere is money iii no other crop,
but cotton, therefore plant all their
productive lands in cotton and there
barren lands in grain, which is a
great mistake. Ifthe capital of the
country was applied to manufacture
and half of the labor devoted from
cotton to provision crops, in a few
years our country would become
prosperous, populous and wealthy.
