Immigration Society.
Wo think it would redound to tho
interest of Pickens County to organiro
an immigration Society, with intelligent,
oncrgotic men at tho head
of it. Greenville and other countios
liavo Buch an organisation, by which
means they aro onablod to socuro all
tlin nmirrrnnts rnmincr i 111 n 1 Iuk Rpf.t.iiiii

of country. Pickons should not bo
behind hor sister counties in this rcs->
pect. Sho should hnvo hor society
with her best and most intelligent
citizens at its bond, who would place
thomeclvos in communication with
ngencics in Now York and othor
cities, as woll as the emigants thornsolvoh,
and lay beforo thom tho many
advantagos of our County as an in
ducoiuont for thorn to como and sot>
tlo among ua. Tlio agricultural and
min.irnl rosourcos of tho County; tho
manufacturing advantagos; the church
and Bchool facilities; tho manners and
customs of tho pooplo; tho salubrity
of tho climato; tho purity of tho water;
ihefortilitv of f.hn soil; firm mniinliiin
ecenory and a gonornl description of tlio
County should bo published in plain
and simpio langungo in pamphlet
iorm, and placod in tno hands of tho
oraigrant. Ho would then know
aomothing of tho country ho wasaskod
to go to, and wouid feci that ho had
an introduction to tho pcoplo beforo
he went amongst them. If wo do
not t.nlfft nn infnrnftt. in <lii? mntlnv
and inhko an effort to socuro some ol
thoimmigants now pouring into tho
South, and especially tho 1'iodtnont
belt of country, they will all pass us
by and scttlo amongst thoso who
liavo laid their claims before them.
Tho society could put itacit in direct
communication with Mr. Tilman J?.
Guinea, who has established an agency
in Now York city, and obtain from
him and other agents, tho number
and kind of immigrants desiring homes
in this section, their trade or calling;
and those of our citizcns want'ng
them could mako their ordors direct
through tho Society without any un
neccssary trouble. Thoso having lands
to bell or Iqaho could make il known
by this incanH directly to tho immigrant?tho
prico, number of acres
and quality of land, and cfToct a salo
or loaso without tho least troublo or
difticultv. There, aro mnnw nndunn.
tftgcs to the County llial would ariso
through such u Society; hor waste
places would soon bo built up and tlio
fiolds that arc now grown up in broom
sage and pines, would soon bo teaming
with the irohlfln <rrnin or flnnr-v

our nativo citizens, and bo nn impetus
to improvement and real prosperty.
Tbon lot uh organizo an Immigration 1

to it.
Major Whito was indictod for as?.
sault and battery with intont to kill
upon Austin Davis, a colored boy in
his omploy. Upon this indictipont
ho was put upon trial, and aftor long
deliberation by tho jury a vordict of
guilty of assault was rondored against
him. Tho jury ehargod with tho triul
of the easo argued upon this vordict
only as a kind of compromise, nnd
with tho expectation that Maj. NV hi to
would reeoivo that consideration from
tho court usual in all such eases: that
his punisiunont- would bo in propor
tion to tho oflenco committed, and in
uccordanco with established prccodont.
Tho sontonco of tho court was
that Major Whito pay tho costs in tho
prosecution of tho case, and that ho
bo confined in tho Count}' jail for
thirty days. In passing this sontcnco,
Judgo Cooko mado it convenient to
bring tho color question to thosurfaco
and onucavorcd to impress upon tho
prisoner tho o\en poiso with which
ho aimed to hold tho scalos of ju6tico
IIo claimed that ho could do nothing
less, and wlion appealed to by Cel.

in tho alternative, (fino or imprisonment),

Austin Davis, tbo complainant in
tbis action, was tried and convicted
upon two charges, 0110 for assault and
uauory wiui iniont 10 kiii ana uio

tlio first offonco ho waa scntonced to
tho county jail for sixty, and for tlio
