Cotton States Life Insurance CompaZy.
We take pleasure in calling the atten
t.ion of our readers to the card to be
found in this issue relating to the above
named company, one of the most popu
lar and fairest in its dealings now in op-2
ration. One of its chiefest merits is
that it is a Southern company and identi.
tied with the interests of the South.
ern people, and as such has peculiar
claims. The company, as will bo seen
by advertisement, has added the Tontine
system of dividends to its other plans,
any information desired will be prompt
ly given by addressing either Mr. W. J.
L-Lval, at Golumbia, or M. W. Abney, M.
D., at Edgefield.
The Columbia Union.
The editor and proprietor of the Daily
Union of Golumbia, is now issuing a
Weekly paper, and promises "to devote
it to the material interest of South Car
olins," and "not to offensive partizan
ship." This is eminently right, and we
hope Mr. Carpenter will make it such.
A-ide from its peculiar polities, and wore
particularly the di;po,ition so eagerly
manifested to catch at and disseminate
broadcast every idle and vicious repoi t
which the unprincipled get up, the Daily
Union is ably edited and managed, and
Nhowsan indnstry in gathering news,
which makes it in the main very inte
e,ting, and the same energy and tact be
stowed on the Weekly, will make it as
readable as the be-t. Thee are excep
tions to all general rules, and thercfore,
all is not fair in war.

The Xay Convention.
/ o v'icw of thre Convention to be heki
in Columbhia, a number of gentlement
hr.eedo:terchanged views on the situa
tion wi:th the-Governor. The discussion:
on thfiaces, sterlinrg fond bill, the
convention, and taxation was long. It
was agreed, -says the News, "that the
convention would be productive of good,
provided it (lid not partake of a political
- or partizan character, and the hope was
~czpressed that such would be the case,
-endthat'the body would confine itself
strictly to the purposes for which it is
convened." We believe that this hrope
'ds entertained generally, and that the
body will meet and temrpe,ately discuss
the questions as u vderstood] in the plan
* whica suggested a convention. Th'e Co
lumabia Union belie"es "that before it
has been in session txvo hours, renlui
tions or speeches wili be offered or mzadr,
denouncing Radicals, Repuh!!canismr,etc.,
andl calling upon the people to ri.e ini
. their mright and drive the intruders fromi
the State." The Union wi!! be mistaken.
Partizan feeling and polities i:,troducedl
into the G,onvention wou'd dlestr"y its
main object, in fettering its usefulness.
The abandoned coursc of the L'gi,1atuore,
its r>igate waste, shared by a!!, or
-:da;!r all of the offiials who have beern
able to get a finger in the commnon pie;
theo enormous taxes ; all these and more
haive brought the pe'ple to thinik that it
is time they were looking tmare coe
into affairs, which so seriously a ff. ct the
omnmon well-being. And! to mrake ar
inrvestigation is their s-demn right. Thi,
:rnvestigattion, intelligent mrinds of the
State understand, is the object of th.e
presec:t mieeting of del--g,t-:s from eac:h
of 'he Coun:i:-s. The tax pae:swd

The Tal; With Gov. Sont
The Charleston News of the 19th con
t.a;ns an almost verbatin report of th
language of Gov. Scott, en the financita
and general condition, the more import
ant because it is the first expression o
official opinion that has been heard ii
the present crisis. Each question a
propounded wns answered by Gov. Scot
frankly and squarely, and ,how that the,
had b:en thoughtfully considered. Wan
of spare alone prevents tis piresentin,
this report to our readers, and we giv
(1nl1y a few extracts. In regard to tl.
action of the Board of Trade, and th,
feeling of the people as to taxation
State debt, and the corrupt Legislature
the Govern-er saH:
"I am free to say that, in my judg
ment, the disturbed condition of the pub
lie mind results from a mi-apprehensioi
of our financial affairs. Either with ;
view to iinj-ire the credit of the State o
to achieve personal objects-perhaps po
litical in character-certain individual
have sought to make it appear that th,
State debt has been largely increased b:
the present adnnisitration. Such is no
the fact, and I propose to show the wh
and Aheref-ore. Fii-t, the act of th
Legislature of ISI auth rized the fund
ing of the bills ,f the lank or ;he Stat
into State bnds. 'That I do tiot regar
as an increase of the deb)t, but merely a
a change in tie fM M of an old debt, th
co-:rts having deited that the State vta
unqtiestionably liable fur these bills. S
muich, then, k inot elhrgeable to this ad
ministi ation. Secondly, in the reorganti
zation of the government, it was ase
tained that a large amoutit cf. r.t du

the issue of a .lion of bonds. It wi
he seen, hy reference to the law, ho%
theso uonds were to be negotiated.
aird!v, a debt existed which had bee
created by the issue of hills receivahI
inmediatlv ift,:r the war. T::ey, to,
had to be provided1 for, or rather, retire'
aind an additional i-suc of five hun:'r.
thousard dollars' wor th f bomids wa
made for this purpose. Fourthly, ic wn
ascertained, during the regular s*.,sioTn
1SG-'G), that even ith this assistanet
Sit was i:npossib!e, at the low price .
which the bonds were selling, to tE
'the liabilities which existed-debts, b)
te way, that had not been created b
this adminivtration. The issue of a imi
lion more of bonds was. tberefore, :in
thorized, for the relivf of the treasuri
The sum total %as then two on;lion fiv
hundred thousand dollars. Finally, ti
net providing for the organization of th
1at.d commission called for seven hur
dred thousand dollars more of bond
and thus the total issues, since 18W,
amount to three tnillion two hund:e
thousand doiars. Now, of these bond.
according to the last report of tile finar
cial agent, at New York, about one nmi
lion of dollars have t-en placed upo
the iarket, leaving a balance of twcntv
two hundred thousand dollars in I
hands. You will see from this statemen
tha:t there is no f-undatiun wha'ever f
the runors which have obtained curreu
ey and can readily understand why,i
conseqluence of those t un,ors, our seeu
ties htve been depressed. and the cre :
of the State seriously itjuired."
Antd on the question: of taxation
"With a prope'r undler,tanding of th
subject-that is, taking into conide-r
tion the agZregate of the three levies

11 RECKLFS On CRIMINAL SHtOOTNG.-On
re Sunday evening last, soon after the fancily of
re a citizen of this town hid gone to Church,
so meof the yout.ger children who had re
re m:ained at home, with the servant, were
alarmed by the exp!osion of a fire-arn, and
cra'hillg into the house of a rifle ball. The
- bil penetrated through the blind and double
to panes of glass, ned indented the door at the
farther end of tho ro,)n. The children had
Oi left the supper table but a few moments,
e just Vhire the ball caine in. To say nothing
in of the desecration of the Sibbath, this thing
of careless shooting at all times, within the
ce corporate limits, should be prohibited.
je Since the above was put in type, we learn
. that the fears of the family are relieved. The
,k slot was acciden tal. A gentleman was shoot
ut ing at an of1endivg dog.
