/ "Do you know airy one who has a fow hun
dred to lend? "No; but wo know of a few.
^hundred'who would like to borrow," is the re
ply. Thcro is a striking commentary iu this
upon the times. .Without doubt, the country
is hard up ; and were it not for assistance from
abroad, the starvation and misery which has
visited some of our unfortunate neighbors in
spite of all efforts, would be almost universal.
. But it will never avail us to give way to de
spair. Let us look., tho crisis full jn tho face,
and resolutely qndeavorto meet it as best we
may.. And first, let tis consider briefly the
causes of this general depression in our midst,
and sco if we. can gather from theso sources any.
reasons for encouraging hopes of the future
/ First, the 'failure of crops Inst year left the
/whole country so poorly supplied for the pre
sent season, that a clog Was laid upon all agri
cultural enterprises, which arc the basis of our
material prosperity. This State is dependent
for support upon hor groat staples,.and in case
of ^a failure in .the crops, wo have no manu
factured fabrics to sond abroad to exchange for
the products of other sections; hence without
gratuitous aissistan.ee from the benevolence of I
strangers, our people at such a tame must suf
fer many and great privations. Being under
this stato of affair's now, tho question arises, is
there any hope of bcttoring our condition in
this respect? "Wc arc? happy to be able to
point to the crops of the present season, and
tihd .in them a sign of encouragement. Na
ture seems to have smiled upon tho labors' of |
the industrious planter, and holds out to him
tho prospect of an ample harvest. In visiting
different parts of our District of late, and in
hearing reports from othor sections, we arc jus
tified in concluding that tho crop of tho pre
sent year, when brought to market, will tend
"greatly to the amelioration of our condition.
\/ Secondly, t^ic disagreements hot Ween debtor
laud oreditor, the existence of a Stay Law, and
The accumulation of . litigation consequent
thereon,?all these tended to add to to tho dis
tress incideut'upbn the failureof the Southern
cause. But hero again, there is liopc in- tho
future, since the Court Dockets will^oon bo
oloarod of this ?fTC<*B ^f,HUM?> and^tnos cour^o.
of justice Wi?^j^ed-lh\|-U usual' channel.
Had it not beoKfo?<he misguided 'action of the
military comqibndjgt, tho ; great \maB8 of this
litigation would 'havo beer* already dispatched,
.and the country -would already bq( reviving
from .its incubus.
/. Thirdly, the disorganized condition of Socie
ty, consequent upon tho nrbitary and unjust
legislation of Congress. The' effects of this
are to bo seenio the total destruction of credit,
in tho stagnation of business,* in tho uncertain
? ? ?
ly which hongs -over the events of our political j
lire. * Iu theso days, when no contract is sacred
undor, the law y wheh all the calculation aud
arrangements of prudent foresight-are liable at
any moment $o be annulled by a military or
der, when th? close of a disastrous war fiu4s
us not-ouly "the victims : of. the conquering?
sword, but of tho vindictive edicts of tho victo
rious party, promulgated from tho Halls of a
factional Congross, and iucreascd in their sever
ity by the manner of thoir execution by power
ful and irresponsible agents,?all these form
the prime causes of our dis tress, and from these
it is our hardest task to find'a refuge. But
even here, lot us not give way to despair. Let
us .struggle on with our fate, and Fortune may
at somo unexpected turn of her wheel, declare
in our favor. Meanwhile, let us toil faithfully
for the accumulation of the means of support
ing existence; let us devote our energies to
placing ourselves in a position of private in
dependence : so that if storms are around us,
and our political horizon shows no star of hOpeu
.we ean iu tho cheering domestic circle, enjoy
the consciousness of comfort, plenty* and peace.
Brazil ami its Products.
We place before our readers, the following
interesting account of Brazil, written by a
friend who has been there for the ? pur-pose of
seeing the country, and who has made his o?|
scrvations.with intelligence and discretion ?
OnAxoKuuiiG District; S. C.
?June fith. 1SG7.
Mit.'Editor :?I feel confident that you
have no idea of visiting the Empire of Brazil,
but'notwithstanding,'I will, comply with ydur
request, by .giving you a brief description of the
climate, soil and ? productions of that country,
togother with the manners, customs and habits
of its people I do not consider the climate, a
healthful one, judging from tho number of per
sons that I saw with coughs and other diseases
I frequently noticed the range of thermometer
j in the Northern portion of the empire (on .the
Equator) hud however strange it may appear, I
'never found the mercury ^higher than ninety
eight (98) degrees at noon. Tho temperature
of the climato in that..soctif>n is the saiuc the
j year round, but as I proceeded ?South It gradu
ally grew milder, and in no portion of the em
' pirc that I visited did I find it sufficiently cold
:to stop vegetation ; thoughJL was told while inj
province of San Paulo, that they sometimes
have a very light frost in that- section during
their cool season, but as I mentioned above,
not sufficient to kill vegetables. It is true that
tho lands generally, in that ..country are very
productive and can be bought at low rates, but
I must say that many of the accounts that I
read, (concerning the fertility of the soil
of that country), previous to my visit there,
were exaggerated. I think that if their good
lands*were cultivated according to our system,
they would produce about thirty-five (35) or
forty (40) bushels of corn to the aero and from
twelve hundred to thirteen hundred pounds of
seed cotton ; again, , the corn might not make
anything, if planted according to our system,
for I was told that tho object of the Brazilian
in planting his corn thick*is to shade the land,
and protoct it from the heat of the suu during
long dry seasons, which they frequently havo
during the year. I noticed that all of the
Americans that are planting in that country
(notwithstanding tho most oi' them are from
the Southern States) follow 'he Brazilian's
example. As yot the growth of cotton in that
country has not proved to be a success, aud is
looked upon by some men there as being a
doubtful crop. Tho coffee "fazcnduS" or plan
tat ions arc very fine and beautiful, but they
can not be bought for less than from seventy
five to one hundred dollars per acre, and beforo
proceeding I will state that coffee can bo
grown successfully, only in certain sections of
tho Empire, owing very much to the climate as
well as tho position that the ground must occu
py in regard to the sun, as the lands of the
country are generally rolling. Sugar caue
grows well, but the joints arc generally very
j short. Tobacco also grows, finely in certain
sections ;T was told by Brazilians that the
latfds in tho vicinity of Bahiu arc best adapted
to the growth of this plant.' ??
Tho mass of the population occupy the mari
time districts, the interior being principally
covered with very thick forests; and it is
there that the Brazilian government wishes
emigrant" to settle in order to clear these
,Jv? ? 1 X" "*"~'
forests and open reads, &c. Tho inhabitants
of Brazil are whites, iudians, .negroes and mix
ed races. Tho whites.1 are! chiefly Portuguese
and their defendants'J- of "those mosi of the
wealthy are well educated and generally very
hospitable, but education is limited,, ob schools
aro very rare oxcept in tho largo towns; there
fore, the people gonerally, arc ignorant and
' also 'Very indolent; tho indolence I think is
caused by the constant heat, which I was told?,
hnj} atgrcat tendoucy to keep tho whole human
system debilitated. Nearly all of tho labor of
that country is performed by negro slaves, who
thrm about three?fifths of tho population. I
thiuk that slavery there, will in the courao of
t*inc be abolished by^ gradual cmanipation,
though I do. not think that it will be done very
soon. I left Brazil about eight weeks ago,
and "young negro fellows .were then worth from
five to seven ? hundred dollars; the. pewplc of
tho United States appear to be more deeply in
terested concerning the abolition of slavery
in Brazil, than the ? Brazilians themselves; it
my predictions be true in regard to the aboli
tion of slavery there, I am confident that, that
country? will be, in a much worse'Condition
than oUrs, as'there is even now less prejudice
in Brazil between the different races than there
is in the Souther)) States. ,
K The religion of Brazil is Catholic, although
there arc. two American churches in Bio-dc
Janioro, one of which is an Episcopal and the
other a Presbyterian.
Brazil is divided- into provinces and each
..province has a-president appointed over it.
J The laws of the country arc very good, but
they arc not properly in forced, as the judges
as well as the juries aro open for bribery and
corruption. There arc but three railroads in
the empire. Roads for traveling by private
conveyance arc also very rare, and cv.en thc-s^
that they have arc suitable for pack mules
.onlv *???? it. is on t.ltAsn nack-mulcs that all of.
their exports and imports arc transported I
through the interior of tho country. Agricul
ture is in a very backward state and not. more
than one forty-ninth part of the country is
supposed to be cultivated, and manufactures
scarcely exist.
The people of the. interior live upon beef,
mutton, vegetables, farina and fruits. The
vegetables are inferior, - the cause .of which is
the want of proper' attention and 'cultivation.
The farina is used as a substitute for bread,
and is mace of the roots of tho mnndiocn-;
'the mnndioea rcsciiiblcs very much our Palma
Christi plant; and tho jnloo of its roots
pressed out, ns it is said to bo vory poisonous ;
after which, thoKO roots aro kiln-dried, and
ground into a meal which has the appearance
of the meal made of Indian-corn ; this meal is
oaten on the meats and vegetables, without be
ing carried through any other procotw.
Persons removing to tho interior of that
empire t an never afford to cat wheat bread or
ham again, from the fact that flour cannot be
bought for hws than from twenty to twenty
two dollars (in gold) per barrel, and hams for
not less than from forfy-fivo to fifty coots per
pound; then tho expenses for transporting
these articles through the country on pack
mules arc very great. The mules of that
country aro not large, but they are very fine,
and can be bought for from thirty-five to fifty
dollars per head. I saw but four horses hi the
cmpjrc and they were inferior. I was told
that horses would net do well in that climate,
aud that was tho roason why so few persons
had them.
. There are Other things connected with the
history of lirazil too numerous for me to men
tion at present, but I will give you a full ac
count of that country on sonic subsequent oc
casion. M. D.-B.

To assist him in the arrangement of his
Registration programme, as well as to divert,
from himself individually a portion of the odium
which will possibly bo excited by tho probable
charaetoi of his Order on the subject, our
Military Chief, tienerul Sickles, has gathered
around him an Advising Board. Five mem
bers compose it; two from ench of the States
constituting this District; and one a repre
sentative of tho Military. Our State is repre
sented by Lemuel Boozor of Lexington and
F. L. Cardoza of this city; tho former not un
known in political circles in tho interior Dis
tricts, the latter a citizon of African descent,

laborious, task of framing roles for. Registra
tion. Tho result of their deliberations and
consultations will - not be made public until
they shall have arranged a schctno command

well be supposed, however, ns the members of
the Council arc all dxtrcino in their views, that'
tlo liberal basis of registration will bo present
ed, and,' if their recommendations aro endorsed
by the General Commanding, our road to the
registration office aud thence to the ballot-box
will not be a smooth one.'
In a case for infringement of Internal Rev
enue Laws tried in the U. .8. Court last week,
the question of the inviolability of telegraphic
despatches was .pressed upon Judge Bryan.
The Prosecuting Attorney* wished to examine
Mr. U'Kcaf, the Supcri'utendant of the Tele
graph Company, in regard to the character of
Certain- messages alleged to have been sent
from here by one of the parties implicated iif;
the indictment*. Mr. O'Keaf declined to an
swer, and stated that he was bound to entire
secrecy in regard to. all despatches scut or re
ceived by him, pleading also that his position
was analogous to that of a Postmaster.'?'His
counsel ably and logically presented his ease,
but their alignments wore over-ruled by the
Judge, who decided that he must give his tes
timony in the particular demanded. The
question is a novel one in our Courts, and .can
hardly be regarded as definitely nettled.
W illiam Jennings, charged'wiih having
been prominently connected with the band of
desperadoes, yclept] '-Bead Heads'*?who have
for months past been living like the. Arabs in
Kdgcfiekl, Lexington, BarMvoll and Orange
burg Districts?was last week arrested and
marched iu irons through the city, to Castle
Pinckncy, where he is uow incarcerated, lie |
will be tried by Military Commission, and if
convicted; will probably suffer flic extreme
penalty of martial law. A Commission was
appointed a few weeks since, and now holds
sessions whenever cases are brought before it .
Its first case was that of rbo negro rioters on
the Street Cars, who were acquitted.
*vV general collision on the "Western frontier
with the poor hiduius seems to bo inevitable,
and the government U rapidly moving troops
towards the seat of war. 'Companies D* and F
of the Gth Regiment, which have fur months
been stationed here, . left yoidcrd-.ty. They
joined at RranclivUlo two companies from the
garrison at Columbia', and went westwivruVitb
them. Colonel Green, lately Vn command at
the Capital, has charge of the Battalion. Two
companies of artillery from Fortress Monroe
arrived bore to-day, to replace those who have
gone. Colonel Burton, favorably known for
his kind treatment of Ex-President Davis, ac
companies them.
The farms in the neighborhood of our city
have this Spring.been quite prolific-, and large
quantities of early vegetables have been ship
ped North. The steamer Champion, which
sailed last Saturday for New York", took us
part of her cargo 2Q0? barrels'of Irish pota
toes. These command very fine prices in that
Metropolis, and our industrious and energetic
farmers will be well rewarded for their enter
prise. ? . ' ? , j<.
The 'steamer Manhattan, consort of-the
Champion, which' left Ncw York on Saturdaj*
afternoon, pleased.her passengers and surprised
the people generally by arriving at her wharf,
here, on Monday, having made the passage in
?18 hours. This is the quickest trip made be
tween the two*: ports since the war. The best
time ever mado was by the Colnmbia'xxx 18GU '
she then completed her voyage from wharf to
wharf in -IG hours.
A new force pump designed to supply loco
motives with water aud do away with the ex
pensive hydrants now used by the Railroad
Companies, was tested here at tho S. Cf R. K.
Yard on Saturday. Three thousand gallons of
water were pumped into the 'tender of nn cn
gino iu six minutes. Superintendent Peakc,
Major Melton the contractor for boring tho Ar
tesian well, and several others interested in
hydraulic machines were in attendance, and all
were pleased with the result of the trial.
Gen. Sickles returned Monday from his trip
to Raleigh to meet the President. The people'
are wondering if he will advertise his return
with Order No. H5. Vio all wish, ns good citi
zens, to '?'render unto Ctcsa'r the things thnt
aro Ctcsar's," and to be obedient to tlio "rfc.
facto" authority; but litany complain that
their momorics can hardly retain tho General's
edicts?they follow each other in mioh rapid
succession. DELTA
