The Negro in South Carolina.
The history of the colored race in South Car?
olina commences with the year 1671?199 years
ago. In April of that year, Sir John Ycamans
(the third of the proprietary Governors of this
State) brought with him a number of Africans
to till his large farm on Ashley river. This was
twenty-five years before the introduction of rice
into the State, and many more before cotton was
first planted. Cereals and animal products
were then the objects of the planter's attention.
The number of the colored race increased very
rapidly; so much so that in thirty-seven years
_in 170S, that is?the census returns show a
/greater number of them than of whites. There
were 4,100 of them, while the number of the
whites was 4,080. -There were, at the same
time, 1,400 Indians held by the colonists as
In 1787, South Carolina closed the slave
trade by legislation, making it a penal offence
to bring slaves into the State. This, it will bo
remembered, was twenty years sooner than
either the United States or Great Britain took
direct.measures against the slave trade.
In 1790, three years after this legislation
against slavery by South Carolina, the whites
were in a majority, the entire population of tlie
State being about 250,000. Atter that time, the
colored race increased more rapidly than the
white, until the war. In 1860, the two races
stood colored 412,320; white 291,388. At the
close of the war?we mean, of course, in 1869
?the races had both decreased?the colored
being 386,139; and the white 274,962. It is
more than probable that the decrease of the
colored race in these nine years (26,182) has
been almost entirely since the war; whereas
the decrease of the white race (16,427) occurred
during the war. The only authoritative regis?
try of deaths that we have in the State is in
Charleston; and by reference to the mortuary
reports published weekly, it will be seen that in
that city the disparity of deaths still continues.
The rate of deaths is" about five colored to three
and a half white.
These points in the history of the colored
race in South Carolina may convey some useful
suggestions to the political thinker whe seeks to
solve the now knotty question of political, race
and party issues."

sideration for his affiliation with his natural

Beautiful Tribute to (lie South.
The following beautiful tribute to the South is
from the Baltimore Episcopal Methodist:
And yet, amidst all this desolation and ruin,
did the world ever see anything like the uncom?
plaining dignity with which the South has
borne a hideous vivisection that left it at the
time but a ghastlv semblance of life ? We con?
fess that not all the magnificent valor that won
her thousand victories, not the fiery onset of
Jackson's Scotch-Irish, nor the superb compo?
sure with which he directed the advancing tide of
battle, or covered the slow and sullen retreat,
has ever so electrified and melted our whole
souls as the sublime fortitude with which the
South has borne the most unspeakable woes.
? Tlie Niobe of nations there she stands,
Childless and crownlcss in her voiceless woe,
An empty urn within her withered hands,
Whose holy dust was scattered long ago."
Nor is this all. The Virginia thus treated,
the "Lone Mother of Dead Empires,1' is also
the mother of that Union from which she has
been kept out like a leper, and only admitted
now under the most tyrannical and exasperating
The corner-stone of this grand constitutional
fabric was laid by the hand of the giant 'who
now stands at the threshold of the temple, his
hair shorn, his eyes put out, and for the present,
making.sport for t.'i2 Philistines. It is Virgin?
ia, that proud old colony, which having no
quarrel of her own with the King of England,
yet took up, from generous sympathy, the cause
of Massachusetts; Virginia, but for whose
Washington, the revolutionary war would have
been a disastrous failure; whose Jefferson wrote
the declaration of independence; whose Patrick
Henry roused the nation to arms with his elo?
quence ; whose Marshall was the glory of Amer?
ican jurisprudence; whose Madison* Monroe,
Harrison and Taylor adorned the executive
chair; whose Winfield Scott and Rough and
Ready were the leading military figures of the
Mexican war; with troops of her valorous sons
in the war of 1812; whose statesmen have il?
lustrated the councils as have her soldiers the
camps of the republic?this is the good old
commonwealth which for five long years has
been ground to the earth under the hoal of ne?
gro and military vassalage, and is now only per?
mitted to enter the edifice which she made by
her own hands, and adorned the immortalized
by her genius and virtue, from its foundation
to its pinnacle, as a captive and a slave.
The Oldest Inhabitant.?The oldest man
in America, the veteran John Kitts, was re?
ceived with great cordiality by the President
and members of Congress a few days ago. The
old man wtts born in Bedford county, Pennsyl?
vania, in 1762, and is, therefore, in Iiis 108th
year. He served in tho-Revolutionary war, and
was present at the surrender of Lord Cornwallis
at Yorktown. In the battle preceding the sur?
rendering Mr. Kitts was struck in the back of
the head by a spent musket ball, and the in?
dentation which it made is still visible. The
old man points-to the scar with considerable
pride, and is quite garrulous about the circum?
stances under which he received the wound.
When the war of 1812 broke out he was consid?
ered too old to enter the service as a soldier,
but went in as a messenger to carry the mails.
He relates many interesting stories of the nar?
row escapes he had from being- taken prisoner
by the euemy's scouts. On one occasion he was
forced to leave his horses and take to the woods
so closely was he pursued. He was the bearer
of important dispatches which lie succeeded in
carrying safely through. Although entitled to
a pension both as a soldier of the Revolution
and of 1812, he has never until now asked for
it; and in his modest manner said he didn't
expect to remain long upon the rolls, and all
he would draw out of the treasury would not
bankrupt the government. He has neither
children nor grandchildren living, and when
asked if he had any relatives he replied; ".No,
I am the last of the stock."
Immigration.?Referring to Dr. Turnip
seed's views on this subject, tlie Charleston News
"This plan; observes consideration, especially
by the State Institute and the State Agricultu?
ral and Mechanical Society. It is plain and
apparently practicable. We confess that the
scheme of the Pier nix correspondent is not
complete in every respect. There are matters
connected with the accommodation of immi?
grant land-buyers which are not discussed. It
is, however, something to begin with; some?
thing towards a mature and practical scheme
for the encouragement of European immigra-?
tion. From the State Government we expect
no assistance. The work must be done by the
farmers and merchants of the State. Upon
them the whole burden will fall, and they will
roap the benefit. After the redemption of the
State from a corrupt and profligate rule, the
work of immigration is the most important task
that lies before us, and the sooner we begin it,
the better for South Carolina and the whole
Southern people."

to a little girl, to whose sister he was paying his
addresses, "you arc the sweetest thing on earth.""

Experience ?with ax Ixqujisitive Trav?
eler.?Wc had gone past one or two stations,
when a tall, broad-shouldered, .farmer-looking
fellow, got into the car, and without a "By
your leave," or "Is this seat engaged ?" down he
sat by me. I gave him a severe look that ought
to have annihilated him, and the car moved on.
By and by my attention was attracted by a gen?
tle touch. "Pleasant day." I gave him to un?
derstand, in a curt way, that I didn't care if it
was. After a while he reached his long neck
out by me and said, yawningly, "Looks as cf
we should Lev some rain soon." I let the re?
mark pass without*reply, determined he should
not draw me out. After some miles he again
spoke "Killed a hog last night*" "Well,
whats that to me ?" I said sharply. "Guess
what it weighed?" "O, don't bother mc?six
hundred pounds." "Guess ag'in?" after a
pause. "Well, say one hundred pounds." The
challenge to guess had a trifle of interest in it,
but in a moment, ashamed of having shown any
at all, I thrust my head out of the window,
awaiting my sturdy associate's further advance.
He made none, ami after riding ten or fifteen
minutes I looked around. He was staring out
of the window, apparently lost Sin- reflection.
"How much did' your cussed hog weigh any?
how ?" Iaskcd as surly as I could. His face
didn't change a muscle, though I thought his
eye looked a trtflc mischievous, as be replied,
"Don't know, wc didn't weigh him." Fortu?
nately for my peace of mind he got out at the
next station.

or something of the kind, were obliged to sit
three on a seat. One of the seats contained two
gentlemen and one lady. The gentlemen, of
course, would not allow the lady to take an ex?
posed scat; she, therefore, sat in the middle.
As the night was extremely cold, gentleman
number one quietly passed his hand (a remark?
ably small hand, by the way,) into the lady's
muff. As the muff was- art. very capacious, the
lady quietly removed one of her hands front
the same. In a few moments she felt a move?
ment on the other side, and found gentleman
number two attempting to pass his hand into
the muff on the other side. She then quietly
drew her hand from the muff and allowed him
to do so. What took place in the muff after?
ward she is unable to say. But each of the
gentlemen privately reported to a small circle

Importance of a Good Corn Crop.?
The corn planting season is upon the fanners
of Georgia, and they would do well to notice
the following suggestions, which we find in the
Cultivator-'and Country Gentleman, on the im
fortance of a more general cultivation of corn,
t says, that there are more reasons for growing
corn on a large scale, and in all parts of the
country, than any other farm crop?even in
those localities that are especially adapted to
wheat. It says that in all wheat counties a ro?
tation is necessary, and corn is fowid to be one
of the most essential crops in a rotation. The
grain is needed for the team and stock and to
help in making pork, while the fodder is a
great help in wintering stock. It says that
while cotton may for years be the most profita?
ble crop at the South, yet it is better policy iu
those States to grow home supplies, especially
of corn and the different meats required, than
to depend on selling cotton and buying those

gestions, and yet, how few there are who will
practice the precepts contained therein?prac?
tice what most of them preach. One day last
week, wheat and corn commanded the same
price in this market, and we think it altogether
probable that corii will rule higher than wheat
here till the new crop comes in. At present,
the prospects of a fine wheat crop are flatter?
ing, and if our farmers will only plant corn
plentifully, times will be betternext fall and
winter in Georgia with them, than it has been
for years. No doubt there will be plenty of
cotton cultivated. All that the most eloquent
could say would not bring about. a reform in
cotton culture, so far as its extent is concerned;
but we do hope it will not prevent the general
cultivation of corn from the mountains to the
seaboard of our State.?Atlanta Intelligencer,
How to Feed Fowls.?Fowls are not fed
for the mere sake of keeping them alive and
healthy on the least possible amount of food.
Wc wish to convert the food into flesh, or into
eggs. In feeding for quick fattening it is un?
derstood that poultry should be made to eat as
much as possible. Our rule for feeding is to
throw out the feed twice a day as long as the
fowls will run after it and no longer. We are
told, and it is our experience also, that fowls
thus fed will eat considerably more than if they
can go to a feeding box and help themselves at
all times. We want the fowls to eat; the more
they eat, within reasonable bounds, the more
eggs they will lay, the longer they will lay, and
the better condition they will be in. Laying
fowls should take exercise. If they can go to
a trough and eat atomy time they wish, they
will take next to none. If they are fed but
twice a day, they will hunt insects and wander
much more. If fed soft feed such as wheat
bran mixed "with corn meal or ground oats, they
will be hungry again in two hours after feeding,
and be oft' after insects; etc. Give feed, then,
only to adult fowls while they will run after it

plated a table covered with a cloth. On the
table was a basin, and an actor concealed under
the cloth poked up his head through a hole in
the table, so as to seem to be placed in the ba?
sin. The effect was prodigious. The audience
applauded and trembled. Unluckily a wag,
who had been strolling about the stage, had
sprinkled a spoonful of snuff on the basin, and
just as the tyrant finished his address to the
severed head of his enemy, the head replied by
a hearty fit of sneezing, and changed the au?
