To foster and advance thin great brenoh pf industry sud the arts, the State Agfi cn 1 tu ra 1 and Mechanic al Society waa formed, and annual fairs were established. Beginning on the 6th of November and ending ou the evening of November ll* the third henna! fair of that society is ?boot to be held. It will meet this year ander disadvantageous circumstances, resulting from the military rule that prevails iu nine Counties of the State. Nevertheless; wa expect a large crowd and a decided success. Let the State show the untiring energy of her sons and the indomitable spirit of her daugh? ters. Let us 4'broast the blows of cir? cumstance," and illustrate the pluck, of ?n -unyielding population. The State fair is not only an industrial institution; it affords also the chance for a delightful social re-union. Fair week brings to? gether the mountains and the sea-board; and though yellow fever in Charleston .nd Ctesarism or G ra uti s m in the up? country must, to some extent, impair the gathering next week, lot our friends, all who can, favor us -iib their pr?sence and their contributions. It will be a proud spectacle to see Sooth Carolina risa proudly from the waves that have rolled ot ev her, and show to the country ber undaunted crest-proudly illustrat? ing, her ?noient motto by exhibiting in bet distress the great principles of syinrr, ^^TOCES And SOPS. , To say nothing of the recreations af? forded next week, the solid business of fnirtw.6?k invites a.foll attendance at the capital.- The ?air itself, the railroad meeting, tho Survivors1 Association, and the Ladies'Bazaar, have certainly sub? stantial ends to attain. It ia enid that the. Olympian and Pythian Games of Greece brought together the youth, the beauty, the manhood and. intellect of shat land; and although confined mainly 'to feats of strength and savage encoun? ters, yet it is agreed that they subserved a very high and useful purpose. It is, however, a higher civilization that per? meates our annual gathering, and gives it ita tone and direction. True, we have the tournament, the bal), and the trials of speed, but these are but the in? cidents of the occasion. Tba main and most important element o' the fair at? taches to the peaceful triompha of art and indnstry. In Colombia, in particular, let each good citizen do his part and help the good cansa Columbia/ we are free to say, will greet with pleasure the friends and strangers that may come, and re? ceive' them with proverbial Carolina hos nl&ftj.'' Proportional Representation. Our able co temporary of the Louis? ville Courier Journal is waking Kentucky np to the merita of proportional repre? sentation. The Courier-Journal considers the various plans that have been pro? posed-to wit: Tho limited vote, the cu? mulative vote, the free list syBtem and the alternative or preferential vote. Generally, in this country, the cumula? tive system has been preferred, as in Illi? nois, Sooth Carolina, and elsewhere. The Courier-Journal expresses its prefer? ence for the alternative or preferential vote, known as Hare's system. This ia a method by which each voter may cast as many votes os he chooses for as many different candidates, in the order of his preference, one vote being oast for eaob; the vote for the seoond, or any subse? quent eboioe, to be counted only in case the vote for the elector's first ohoice is not needed to give snoh oandidate the namber of votes necessary to elect him, and no voter having more than one of his Totes ultimately counted. Our judg? ment leads us to prefer the cumulative vote-favored by the late Tax-Payers' Convention in this State. We deem it simpler in ito workings than the other methods, and, therefore, to be preferred, provided it meets the emergency. Thia, we hold, that it does. We ore gratified that this subject is gaining more and more upon tbe public attention. It hus been remarked that great truths travel slowly, sod that great reforms cannot be quickly consummated. Tbey mast be the result of persevering energy and in? domitable parposo. That there is u great question of improved voting and better government involved in propor? tional representation, we are sure. As we have said before, in our agitation of this subject, it is some form of proper tioual representation which can preserve popular government; and it is this, and ' this alone, which can make unlimited snffrage consistent with the public liber? ties and the public welfare in genera). Wo refer to this subject because we feel a deep i eiterest in it.ac ou jd^trac^ques; tion of g*pornroeut. We despair ot tho dominant partyJn tbj?)?3tate aodfepti log sacha programme. It is! true, we bali ere that the>lojred -voters might be disposed to make the concession, as a matter ultimately to oonduoe to their j welfare. Bat their oarpeVbag and other j advisers will control them until the ruling power IS takbtt. from ??ero. at the ballot box, or u o tiLit falla from. weak.and pall sied hands, prrn \ij . Tttd StttU Prlnllag-Thc ..C?t." In lb?t ?eas;." Wheo Dickons drew his oharaeter of the "Artful Dodger," he mast have had io bia mind's eye jost auoh a oharaeter as the Union's editor. After dodging ali the pertinent questions pat lo it, and trying to get off on sideor minor issues, it attempts to show that it had agreed with the New York Tribune in ita criticism a npon the "thieving carpet-baggers. Wc knot; that it did effect to do so, bat we also know that ils effort to mislead poblin opinion aa to its real attitude, was too "thin" for success with persons of disoernment. We now move to another point. The Union, in referrirjg to the subject of the State printing, has anticipated us only a little. That was the next matter that wo had determined to take up before it opened its lipa on the subject. Some time ago there ap? peared a communication in the Faaunx signed "Veritas," making BUudry state? ments with reference to the Union, which that journal called false and libel? lous. It demanded of the proprietor of the PUOJNIX the name of the writer, that bo might be sued for libel The proprie? tor of the PnoBNii protected his corres? pondent, declined to give the name, and I took the responsibility. of the alleged | libel. That Was the end of the affair. We mention this to say that we had, and have nothing to do with that article. But the writer resumes the subject upon his own . responsibility. We desire to have a full investigation of the matters connected with the frauds which he has reason to believe have been perpetrated in connection with the State printing. That the State has been swindled ont of a large sum of money in this connection, we have not the shadow of a donbt. As far as our information fairly carries ns, we shall go, and we shall expect the Union to supply all the points it has. We ask, then: 1. Is it not true that a printing com? pany was iormed to do the poblio print? ing, and that it did perform ita work? 2. Before the Union passed into the hands of the present proprietor, what was its relationship and the relationship of its editor to the said company? 3. Is it true, as alleged, that the said company numbers, or bau numbered, among ita members Gov. Scott, Speaker Moues, Comptroller-General Nszgls and other officials? and was its President not Josephus Woodruff, the Clerk of the Se? nate? 4. Is it trae that about $230.000 have been paid out on account of the poblio printing nineo the last Legislature-to say nothing of other oiaimB pending on this account to the extent of 850,000? 5 Is it trae that of this amount, from 835.000 to 845.000 have been paid for public printing to about twenty Demo? cratic papers of the State, and that from 835.000 to 8?5,0J0 have been paid to the three Radical papers? 6. If so, what has become of the ba? lance-about 8150.000-paid out on uc count of the public printing? 7. If there has been loug division or short division, let us have tho names of tho utV?o???. If, now, the Union, or any other party, oan throw light upon this subject, it ought to be done. If the matters here alleged can bu disproved or corrected, let it be done. Let justice be done. If the charges made are trae, and we are in? clined to think that the whole truth has not been brought out, oar readers can observe how muuy "cata" we have iu all the State bins. Can the Union-will the Union- tell us and the public what it knows on this subject? We pause for a reply from some source. "What is Truth?" We wait for an answer.

EDITOR: It is with regret that the necessity exista of publicly calling the attention of the City Gounod, and of thus oomplaioing of the very serious nuisance, in the existence of that of? fensive drain perpetually carrying, with a sluggish ourrent, the offal from tho Oolumbia Hotel, through Davis' Alley, aud a considerable distance on Assembly street. This nuisance is serious, cn ac? count of the ill health it baa produced for several months pest. If permitted to remain, property in this part of the oity most depreciate in value, and the fevers already engendered must terminate seriously. The City Council has been notified by the City Physician and others of this very disagreeable nuisance, but it seems they have let it escape their me? mory, or have unnecessarily delayed its removal. And, whilo the Gouuoil de? lays, diseases are confirmed, and the citi? zens rendered impatient and dissatis? fied. Is riot this a matter of the first | importance? How can pleasure be taken tn oity improvements as loog ns city nuisances remain? CITIZEN.

'Since that time twenty-one arrests have been' made, all bnt two of whioh were in the coobrry, and we are informed by Col. Morrill that ayer 200 persons have tnado OonfeaaiooH M to their connection with the Ku Kl ax organisation. Many who have made confessions say they were simply mem? bers of -tho Klan, and never took..an ac? tive part in its operations, nor were en? gaged io raiding or the commission of outrage* of any kind. Otberaijpay they were impelled to join nader threats of violence, while others give as a reason that by belonging to the organization they thought it would afford them means of protecting the negroes in their em ploy, in case they should be threatened at any time; and some assert that by no other means oould they have been ena? bled to retain on their plantations the necessary laboring force to cultivate the oropa. The confessions are almost inva? riably accompanied by the names of those who performed the ceremonies of initiation, as well as the names of others who were present on the occasion. Some who have made confessions acknowledge to their participation in the commission of outrages of various kinda-, including murders, and implicate other persons who are alleged to have been present. The following list embraces thoms who have been arrested since the publication of our luet issuo, up to 12 o'clock, Tues? day: 8. 0 Sadler, W. H. Snider, W. H. White, Riley Moss, Dr. T. B.

Only two of the negroes arrested by the military are in the jail.

MA JOH-GENERAL/ ROBEBT ANDERSON. Major-General Robert Auderson, whose death at Nice, on the 26th ultimo, bas been announced by telegraph, was a native of Jefferson County, Kentucky, and entered the West Point Military Academy in 1821. He served in the Black Hawk war as lieutenant, and dis? tinguished himself in the Mexican war by his brilliant conduot on several im? portant occasions. He also served in the Florida wars. The opening of the late civil nar found bim a major in command at Charleston, where he held Fort Sum? ter until it was well battered down by General Beauregard. President Lincoln rewarded his conduot on that occasion by promoting him to be a brigadier - general of the regular army. He was BOOQ emu pei led, through iii heaith, to relinquish active service und retired into private lifo. He was subsequently placed upon the retired list, the Senate on February 24, 1865, confirming President Lincoln s nomination, by which the brevet rank of major generul of the regular army was aouferred upon him.
