THUKtiDAY, JULY 28, 1881.
Trenxbliug in the valance.
Iu our last ist>ue tho dispatches
from \Vn8hiugton authorized us in
reporting the President ns on the high
road to recovery. This week t he as
pect is entirely changed for tho worse
A pus cavity has formed in the path
of the ball which has necessitated a
Btirgical operation for obtainiug an
other outlet from the wound. Yes
ter fractured bone was extracted,
and the patient is becoming weaker
and more restless. Wo fear from the
tenor of the latebt dispatches that the
President is far from beiug out of
State Agricultural Meeting.
The Annual meeting of the State
Agricultural Society opened in
Gnenville on Tuesday, about two
huudred prominent farmers being
present from this State and Georgia.
The usual opening addresses were dc
livered by President B. F. Crnyton,
Master J. N. Lipscomb, Mr. M. L.
Donaldson and Col. Wm. Wallace of
South Carolina, aud Rev. Dr. Daniel
Butler of Georgia.
A paper was read on the cultiva
tion of uplaud cotton, by Mr. E. R.
Mclverof Dnrliugtoa-, one on the
cultivation of uplaud rice, t>3' Dr. J.
W. Summers of Orangeburg, and
another on the labor question, b}* Mr.
C. H. Moisc ofSumter. After the
discussion of these questions, the
Society adjourned-for the da}-, for the
enjoyment of a ride around the city,
and a visit to Piedmont Factory.- The
meeting promises to be a very inter
The Overthrow of C'oult.ing.
After a most disgusting and weari-!
some fight at*'Albany, ?.'oukling has
been overthrown, and Lapham, a man
in many respects his inferior, haB
been elected over him as Senator from
New York. About a week ago Miller
was also elected iu the place of Plat t
who resigued with Coukliug. The
fight has been in ruanj- respects a use
less and revolting one. On the one
sidetbc strutting pride of Conkling,
aud on the other the worthlessness,
and riugism of Lapham and Miller,
the successful cautlidates. The New
York Times may well say that the
great State of New York can find
nothing in the new Senators in which
to feel proud. But the uselessness of
the light is another point. Before the
new rienators will take their seats iu
Congress the general elcctiou will take
place. Why then all of this disgrace
ful exhibition? But iu all evils there
is some good. The Republican party
is weakened, and the Democratic par
ty is strengthened. If tin election
should be held now, New York would
go Democratic with hardly a doubt,
and if the change iu public sentiment
is properly fostered we may conn
New York as safely back iu the Dem

The Health of Washington.
From common report and occa
sional newspaper paragraphs, the
health of the city of Washington docs
not nppear to be any of the best. It
is said that the malaria from the
Potomac atl'ccts the atmosphere anil
that fever and kindred diseases from
this cause arc not unfrequent. This
is the excuse that some of our Con
gressmen make lor tippling. They
say their physicians advise it for
keeping off malaria, and they are
very sorry. Now, if the Capital can
not be moved to some higher lati
tude, where our Congressmen may be
taken out of danger of. snakes, mal
aria rind monkey s, where they can be
refreshed by cooler breezes and ex
hilarated by natures pure mountain
dew, there is still another plan. Let
the whiskey of the Capital be "medi
cated'1 and'not taken straight. When
we consider the army experience, we
are astonished, with all the Confeder
ate Brigadiers, for which Washing
ton is noted, that the past should In
forgotten, and that the physicinns
j should be,so led astray. The repre
sentatives of a nation, ought to be
! kept healthy, and robust.
Labor and t anital.
It may bo a matter of interest for
U9 t0;npte.that wages are higher, in
other States, than in"SouTh Carolina.
The range as taken from carefully
compiled- statistics is from about
$2.5 per mouth, for laborers in the
New. England States to $41 in Cali
fornia. In our State, we believe, the
average is $8. ' ? -
What then ia the inference io be
drnwn from theseficts The low of su
ply and'deuiftuULti buuincao is ?8 ctfl
in is the law of water seeking its level
th nature. It may be said that one
cause of higher wages in the North
ern and Western States, is the high
er state of improvement, and conse*
quently, the greater productiveness
of laud" in these States. We grant
this. But, what is the cause of the
ditTerence of improvement? It is the
combination of capital with labor.
Wo have .ndduced these facts to
point out what we believe the inter
est of the State demands, in the mat
ter of immigration. We dou't want
all laborers, but we uccd a consider
able amount of capital. Politically
and agriculturally, it is the settler of
means who buys a farm for himself,
or who 3tarts a factory, a mill or
some other useful enterprise, whom
we need just now as much, if not more
thau the laborer. It is true that
labor is gradually getting higher,
but the immigration of actual land
owners will tend to relieve the diffi
culty as well as the natuial increase
of our population. We are not op
posed to more labor, for it is the |
strong arm of the laborer who gives j
life and energy to our land. Wi h
out him capital would be fruitless.
But it is the combination of capital
and labor that we weuld urge. Let
our Immigration Bureau in attend
ing to the one not neglect the other.
