Our renders -will he shocked by theij
BtftrUitig intelligenceofthe death of!
this faithful public servant at his
itoinc in Charleston on Tuesday.
The excitement of public life, and
the harassing contests to which he
was subjected till ring his Congress
ionnl career was more than Air. Con-,
nor could bear. Added to these
corrodingeuros and excitements, his
unswerving attention to duty, and his
devotion to the liiteyesls of his con
stituents, completely broke down his
health, and at last resulted in his
death. The signs of disease were
seer, in him during his canvass of
Orangeburg County in t he last cam
paign, lie 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. Air. O'Connor was a conscien
tious public man. In all his public
acts he was guided by a sense ot'duty.
Before the war he was several times
sent to the State Legislature. lie
was a brilliant orator, and, after the
war, the graces ?l'eloquence brought
him out again into public life. Iiis
removal from the political arena will
mark an epoch in the history of our
State. We know not; how bettor to
conclude this meagre notice of this
good ma i t an in the language ot
.the ATca-s ami Courier: i
-".Surely M. P. O'Connor had not
?an enemy, and the friends he had he
could depend on ns they could rely i
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 eye and
cheery face will long, long be missed
in Charleston. Honored he was by
this people; loved he was by those
who knew the sweet simplicity of hi* 1
gentle, atfectiounte nature; remem
bered he will be as one whose whole
. career was free from iho stains of
Wiilice,, euvy aud revenge, and who
leaves to those whose hearts ache for
bim to-day the precious memory of a
life adorned by generosity and chari
ty, and by a kindliness that never

happening in the course of his
speech to refer to the bargain be
tween the Republicans ami (Jen.
Mahone, pen. Burnside leaped from
his sent and in the most excited man
lier characterized the statement ns
false. It is reported that Burnside
was drunk, ami on this account Gen.
Butler declined to bandy words with
him, but cooly proceeded with his
speech at the conclusion of what he
reiterated the statement of n bar
gain. The next day Burnside, hav
ing tune for meditation, and appeal
ing from Burnsido drunk to Burn
side 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

the calmness for which he is noted.

Editor Oringeburg Times:
It appears that immigrants arc
coming to South Carolina. I am
fearful that we arc not prepared to
treat them as comfortably as they
should be, in Oraugeburg at least,
for we cultivate laotitiing compara
tively speaking but cotton, nnd these
people can't .oat cottom .seed. No
man should apply for them unless
they are. able, to furnish good iqtiar
tcrs.und wholesome food. If wc in
duce them to eojue among us and
neglect i** treat them as they should
be they may leave, and the malicious
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 4*i I earn our customs and man
ner of work, which requires time.
How 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 pur land, and our farmers
learn to devote one half of their cot
ton lands to bread-stuffs then will we
see i hi migrants Hocking to on coun
ty. We will bo prepared to prove to
the world that ours is a favored
land. But reflect, Mrr. Editor, a
minute. Suppose an immigrant
should came to Oraugeburg to ex
amine pur condition as fanners and
find that most of our farmers are buy
ing at this early date, North West
ein hay, corn, and meat on time,
after having harvested 50 thousand
bales of cotton. What would they
think? Suposothey should find our |
barns full, smoke houses also, our
fields cultivated with grain crops,
fat cattle Arc. What would they
think? Mr. Editor, I venture, to
give to the white farmers of our
country advice cultivate small grain
and such crop** that require little
manual labor; raise horses, mules,
cattle, hogs and sheep. If factories
arcesiablishefl in our land there will
be a demand for all we can raise.
Mr. Editor, many farmers think
that there is money in no other crop,
but. cotton, therefore plant all their
productive lands in cotton and there
barren lands in grain, which is t>
great mistake. If the capital of the
country was applied to manu fact tin
and half of the labor devoted from
cot ton to provision crops, in a few
years our country would become
prosperous, populous and wealthy.
