COL UNIA, S. C.
Frilay Mor nins, March 19. 1?68.
T-be London Time* ?\ut At, ul<l."
The London Ti mrs basan article on war
between v^reat Britain and the United
States on account of the Alabama claims.
It does not profess to believe that war ia
probable, but takes issue with Mr. Reverdy
? Johnson upon a remark submitted by him
that a war would bo "vastly more disas?
trous to Eugland than thc United Stutcs."
It confesses that Cunada might bo forced to
snrronder, but contends that that would be
"no loss" to Eugland. Tho Times couliniH s
in tho followiug arch manner to compare
capabilities of destructiveness between tho
English and tho American.-, iu which that
paper rather iufringes the putout of tho
Confeds, and, furthermore, draws it rather
strong as to "what lins happened" mid
"what may,"cto., wink in thia Southern
direction that will not get a wink back:
?"Tho snggestiou that numerous Alaba
mas would scour every ocean iu search of
tlie British Hi g and Ho in wait in tho
crowded track of our Australian galleons is
a thought of retaliation that must bo only
too 'natural. But neither is tho monaco
necessary nor is it so certain that wo should
find tho odds against us in this sort of war?
fare. Our ancestors were robbers and
pirates, and the Americans arc n Btep
further from that origin than wo aro, for wo
sro an earlier link iu tho chain. Two ships
did all the mountain of mischief that is laid
to our charge, and if it is strange that thor
could be Allowed to get ont of our ports, it
is very much stranger that they should bo
allowed to scour our cntiro ocean und
tbwsten every pathway of commerce. If
our neglect, our red-tapeism and our stu?
pidity were so great as to arouse suspicion
and breed mistrust, what is to bo said of thc
.American Admiralty? How can Mr. John?
son be sure that what has happened will not
happen again? His argument requires that
both circumstances nnd national character
should chango on both sides of thc Atlantic.
We ure to become irresolute, backward and
chary. 'Wo are to-become inseusiblo to that
honor which, if anywhere, we console our?
selves we have maintained on tho sea. We
are to be incapable of doiug on u grand and
open scale that which was lately dono hero
. on the smallest possible scale, irregularly
and surreptitiously, yet with astounding sue
cess. Tho crime charged agaiust those pri?
vateers was that they wero British in every
respeot whatever, except a Hag and a cap?
tain's commission. On tho other baud, thc
Americans are to do ou a colossal seato what
.they failed to do in miniature. By their
? own estimate they lost moro iu the late war
'by the ships that durst not show themselves
?t-sll,-but kept in harbor for fear or Uiosu
twe monsters, thau by the actual captures.
Then, in tho present state of American
polities, who can count on tho permanence
.of tho stains quo in any respect? How
would aforoig.i war operate on the Federal
qnestion? Wonderful and uuexpected
things have happened ou that fabulons soil;
witness the death or maiming of 1,OU?,?OU
men iu the field. What has happened may
still happen. So also may that which hus
not happened, nor even been imagined."
The result of an investigation recently
made by tho reporters of tho New York
Times into the condition of thecolorod pop?
ulation of New York, establishes the facts
that during the year 18G7 and 18GS there
were twice as muuy black as white men ar?
rested, and that, as a general thing, tho
on tire blink community is addicted to
. gambling. The report ends us follows:
"The present generation of colored peo?
ple are congenitully of so low a type of intel?
lect, and consequently of such low habits,
ss. to be littlo bettor than mero animals."
Another instance where tho moto in the.
. ur other's oyo is alone seeu. The "higher
? civilization" should evidently commence at
'Hov. Samuel Anthony was dangerously
wounded near Americns, Ga., while cele?
brating a wedding. He hud gonn to thc
residence of a Mr. Mann, whoso step?
daughter was to bo married. During the
ceremony, Mr. Mann entered in an intoxi?
cated -condition, nud objected to Ibo pro
? oeeding8. Au attempt was made to eject
him, when a shot gun ho held was dis?
charged, dangerously wounding the clergy
toa?. Mr. Anthony was able, while lying
flown, to conclude tho ceremony which wai
30 inauspiciously interrupted. It was after?
wards discovered that tho wounded clergy?
man had two thicknesses of cloth, beside*
over 200 small shot in bis body. It is though!
he will recover.
SBOCKIKO AFFAIK.-A barn on the furn
of Wm. II. Vila?, near Winooski Falls, Vt.,
took fire about 8 o'clock on Friday evening
and was entirely consumed. Tho barn wa.'
a very large ono, and contained at the timi
thirteen horses and colts, thirty cows, t
yoko of oxen and IOU sltoep, (145 animal.

MB. EDITOR: Dull, dull, most amazingly
dall. Will nay thing ''chango the spirit of
our dreariness?" The above, question has
occurred to one-and doubtless to many of
of our city'tn erena nts-within tho past two
weeks. Are we doing tho legitimate and
essential proportion of business to which
our positiou and faoiliti ontitlo us, and if
not. how in the evil tc bo retn?uio?? Tho
writer thinks we ore not, nnd will eudeavor
briefly to assign his roisous.
First, in regard to tho cotton question,
which is acknowledged tho world over to bo
tho groat controlling product of our South?
ern trade and com more*. It is by no means
uccossary to enter into tho detail of figures,
to provo that Ibo receipts and shipments of
cottou from tho Columbia depots is very fur
?mort of what it. onco was, of what it no.v
should bo and tho quantity it must hereafter
bc, to insure our mercan tilo growth and
commercial importance. Hive wo not rail?
roads; have wo not banking facilities where?
with to move tho cotton? llavo we not a
board of trade to proposo plans and devise
ways for moving the crop? It is weil
known that wo have all these, and still wo
have not, during tho passing s">?nn, con?
trolled our just proporti n ui it.
Why do wo COP" autly hear accounts o!
cotton that i? hauled from points North,
Wost and "Last of us to Augusta, Ga., to
Cheater, Winnsboro, and tbcucu shipped
Northward or to Liverpool, without so
mno.* us a drayman receiving a benefit?
These aro vital questions to our town,
and should bo grappled fearlessly and in
earnest by our board of trade. Would not
our cotton business treble itself tho next
season, if the different depots on roads lead?
ing to this city were doubled in sizo and
accommodation, and the tariffs on cotton
for shipment to this point reduced forty or
fifty per cent.? Would not such a policy
double tho business of railroads centreing
here, and command tho business through?
out adjoining Districts? Tho writer insists
that it would; and urges further, that tho
best interests of all railroad corporations
lies in making the lowest possible rates of
freight, nnd extending tho greatest possible
amount of accommodation and promptness.
Above all things, if a courtesy or lavor is
extended, let it be dono io a generous,
wholo-soulod manner, and not with envyiug
and unmanly complaint.
The pi ices paid tho planter for cotton ut
thia point aro as high, or higher, as at any
interior town in the land, and in this re?
spect our country friends are peldom heard
to complain. Thc writer thinks that an
estimate of prices on an average tim ing tho
past fall will show a higher figure than that
of our Augusta neighbors. Willi all due
respect to them, we claim it, and oiler, as
explanation, that we scarcely Eetenough to
Olvide tinily among ourselves. VTliGlL.
The Spaniards in Cuba aro violating all
laws, not ouly of civilized warfare, but of
humanity, in a shocking manner. They
have not only shot the captured Cuban Gen.
Lopez, but, ns ono of the Spanish organs
in Havana states, in tho neighborhood of
Gibara tbey have despatched some of the
captives with kuives. They are setting a
frightfnl precedent, and they will have to
binnie themselves if some day they have to
pay dearly for theso horrid outrages.
A well-known citizen of New York recently

The great Life Insurance Company of tho
United States is tho National, of which Jay
Cooke St Co. are the General Agents, Wash?
ington. Compared with other big compa?
nies, it is destined soon to bo the BIGGEST
company in tho country. Why? Because
its growth and popularity, measured in its
infnuey, warrants it. They have issued, in
five months, nearly 4,000 policies, embra?
cing n sum insured of upwards of $18.000,
000, and thc applications daily increasing.
Another reason is, that tho plan of tho Na?
tional is the correct one, tho cheapest one,
the most liberal one; secures tho largest
amount, for tho sum paid; no fictitious or
distaut dividends declared to dazzlo tho im?
agination with ils glittering promises, but
gives you n cash dividend in hand before
yon start. How? A young clerk, ngo
twenty, pays $12.90 ii year, und secures a
policy in the National for $1,000. In other
companies he pays $10.89-a differenco of
$6.04, or a cash divideud of over fifty-two
percent. This difference will euablo him
to take ont a policy for $500 more; so that,
should bc die, his family secures $1,500,
and pay no more premium than other com?
panies charge for $1,000. This don't look
like, whn1 is supposed by some to bo tho
case, that tho company divide all tho profits
among themselves. Why, tho fact is, they
[jive 3'ou a dividend before it is due-in ad?
vance -and no contingent operation of ma?
king a profit is dependent upon it. Insuro
