Bureau of Agricnlturo.
Id the report from this Department
tho Commissioner recommends that
power be granted by the Legislature
to employ an immigration agent; that
improved varieties of seeds be pur
chased for distribution among the far
? 'Itters of the State ;flhat an expetimcn
Lal farm be established under the di
" faction of tha Bureau; that an asscs
? eor be appointed in each towuship ol
the State to receive returns for the
"Department; and that a special ap
. propriution be made to meet the ex
rpensesof these recommendations.
? The affairs of this department are
' "-evidently controlled by an energetic
' and competent ofllcer and, if properly
? supported by the Legislature and peo
ple, may do much for the advance'
" mentof the Agricultural interest ol
the State. An immigration agent
?'< alone, if nn active ollker with tho
i necessary ^experience, may work out
a more prosperous future titan wo
now dare hope for under our present
circumslances. That laborjis uurelia
' i)lc and will continue.s?>, cannot b
denied : and a reform not only in the
character of the laborer but the quali
ty ol his work is needed through out
the Slate. Politics have had the effect
of antagonizing capital and labor to
the serious detriment of our leading
industries. This must be corrected
either by affiliation of the present la
borers with the dominant party or by
the introduction of others who will
act with it. Either remedy is slow
in its action but whether the desired
result can be effect sooner by the one
or the other, is for our Legislators to
determined. Because our agiicultur
el products are greater now than ever
in the past, is no sufficient reason
they cannot be made slili greater by
a moro reliable labor. There is a
grand future for the South and we
hope it is not fill in the distance, A
live Agricultural Department may do
much lo bring it on.

The School Department.
Superintendent Hugh S. Thompson
gives in his annual report a most en
couraging account of the department
under his charge. There lias been
a gradual increase in the number ol
pi pils attending the public schools
each year to the present lime. Ibtr
ring the last year there were 131,072
pupils in attendance, 8,171 teachers
employed and 6351 ,<1 l?,f>0 expend
He recommends thnt'in addition to
the present slate appropriation, each
?school District be authorized to levy
and collect a local Inx for the special
benefit of its own bchools. This sys
tem pievnils in many localities and is
found to givu most satisfactory re
suits, und he thinks it will he equally
successful in every county of the
Slate. Mr. Thompson believes the
present mode of selecting County
School Commissioners by (lection
biennially very ohj -oli mable, lie
eatn-e it yields one of the chief obsta
cles in tho way ol ihe Schools, the ut
ter Incapacity of many of these olll
ceiii. Notwithstanding this just oh
jeclion, the mode ol selecting these
ulllcers cannot be changed without an
amend incut to the constitution. 11c
advises that no pupils be admitted t<>
the public Scliools other than those
between the ages ol U and IG \ cars.
The aid obtained from the I'eabody
Fund was appropriated to the expen
ses of the formal Institute at Spar
tuntmrg. During the nux.t school
year two of these lu-s.itules are pro
posed lo be held, one lor whiles and
the otlu r for the coloic.il teachers, and
an additional amount of money i
asked lor lo d fray the expenses.
There aie now within the limit- ol
the State 3,331 Colleges and public
ami priva e scliools at which u,e < |,||
dien are I ruined and Ibis number is
not si llieu nt for the necessities of th
state. Ait incrsnso in uumbci and
I |hVh ncy is w-ry desirable.
Let Time Deoide It.
The excitement, occasioned by the
bitter partisanship in tho late elec
tion, having partially subsided our
citizens arc settling down to hard
work and sober thought. We were
led by the press and political speak
ers to bclieve Hint the gentleman who
has been elected President of the Uni
ted Stales for the next four years,
was a bribetaker, a perjurer, a bitter
partisan and a vile slanderer; but
now we are told through the same
channels that be bears an unstained
character and is a Christian gentle
man, a gallant soldier, a wise states
man and a noble patriot. That these
conflicting'reports, concerning a high
otlicial of the government, need to be
submitted to the arbitrimcut of time,
is felt to bo a necessity by 5 every
good citizen North or South. No man
ever possessed belter opportunities
to make himself great thau Mr. Gar
Held possesses; and no man, not
even Mr. Hayes, shall so iguotnin
ously fail as he, if these opportunities
. be allowed to pass unimproved.
? Thc'South owes nothiug to the Re
publican party but scorn and haired
and expects nothing from its repie
scntative as a Republican. The
character given him by friends
and the published sentiment of the
North, however, lilts Mr. Garilcld
above partisanship1, ami from that
character the South expects even
, thing- fair dealing, good government
reform where it is needed and still
more competent officers to fill nation
al position in our section. Whether
these just expectations shall he rea
lized is left lor time lo decide. In
the mean while let charity hide the
errors until the decision shall be
Gov. Hagood was inaugurated in
the Hall of the Representatives on
ln*it Tuesday at 1 P. M. in the pres
ence of bot h houses, several of tho
Stale ami United Stales Judges and
U large assemblage of citizens. Chief
?Justice Simpson aduiinisleicd the
oath of office in a most solemn ami
impressive manner and so hushed was
every sound that tho\fall of a pin
Could havo been heard. After sub
scribing to the Oath Guv. Hugo.) I do

was brief, to the point, eminently
practical anil suggestive. Being a
business man (iov. Hagood will ad

To Our Patrons.
The season of the year has come
when money is more abundant, and
wc hope it will not be out of place to
! call upon all delinquent subscribers lo
' come . forward and pay up. Some
j have already done so, and of course
j this notice is not intended for them.
'? We arc opposed to dunning through
tin: columns ofn newspaper; hut we
! arc in need of what is due us. and we
', have uo other way of reminding out
j delinquent friends of their obligation.
I If we did not need the money this no
j ticc wouhl not appear. We hope
every one of our readers will take the
] right view of this request and forward
! the amount of their subscription with
out delay, we have performed our
part of the contract faithfully.
I The results of the late election have
j been so gratilying to the Republicans
; North that they have been infused
wilh a new zeal for the good of the
'party. In order to secure the control
, of the South, a proposition has been
i made to rain? 8250,000 for the purpose i
I of establishing newspapers through-!
j out that section. This is certainly ;
u spec'cs of political charity we did j
: not expect, hut doubtle s is welcome;
news lo the Radicals of South Caroli-i
Ina. Boliver, Wcbsler Co. will
hand in their petition now lor a few
j thousand in order lo ventilate their
? wrath lor n little wh'le, then sell the
