. ' Oat readers know that it is not oar
habit, as it is very far frosn our taste, to
la trade oar private affairs npon their
notice. The persistent, personal, and
altogether unjustifiable attacks of a oity
contemporary upon the proprietor of
the Phcknix?the authorized agent of
theAssociated Press at this point?for
having sent ia certain despatch oh the
17th of December, 1872, in reference to
the Senatorial election, induco us to de?
part from our custom once again. As
was the ease pnoe before, when the re?
peated : and unjust insinuations of this
sjme journal fferi directed against as,
and If creed '?un 'to rojply, one shot will
suffice., Tho despatch. |u.question waa
the stsfement bf broeeedings- Sn a Trial
Justice's court, as they were reported to
es, and used in our own journal, and, in
substance, telegraphed to others. It
. may not hare been literally oorreot in all
particulars* We were not present at the
Justice's opurt} I tfl proceedings' were re*
pOrtod to us as an item of news', to which,
in fact, wo paid bat little attention.
Next day, upon learning; further what
they had been, we took the' pains to re?
fer oditariully to tho matter, and to de?
nounce them aB irregular. Wo declared
thai, the parties charged with bribery
mast make their showing elsewhere than
in a Trial Justice's court, and in. face of
the affidavits already of record, and con?
fronted by the witnesses who appeared
against them, originally. The Senator
elcot, as will be remembered by onr
readers, was not supported in our co
lamns, nor any improper practices oh
his part, or on that of any one else, up?
held by us. On the contrary, the whole
batch of candidates, including the one
bo warmly supported by our contempo?
rary, were unsparingly oharaoteiized by
new unworthy of the position to which
they aspired.We described the contest
as substantially one between race and
money, and that money had won the
day. We were, in fact, called to account
for qur>, denunciations of the voters as
renal, and prostrate before the golden
calf. So muoh for that. The intimation
that improper motives influenced us in
Bending the despatch, is unworthy of a
respectable journal, and is absolutely
groundloBs. Perhaps a reason may be
fonnd for. the bad mood of onr contem?
porary,' & the fact thai, as Press Agent,
it has been several times oar painf al duty
temporarily; t? withhold its telegraphic
deapatoho*^ owing to non-payment of the
weekly' assessment. Perhaps a change
of Press Agent, as called for by it,
might be beneficial to oar contemporary.
It might be able to relieve itaelf from the
pajmept of the telegraphic toUe and
other dues, as was done several years
ego by a journal bearing the same
name,'' "and having ' ftjin 'samo business
manager, as that of oar contemporary.

The Governor shows himself alive to
the Importance of encouraging immi?
gration. He looks leas to foreign boon
tries for i/sapply of fin^tustrtal immi?
grants, possessed of sufficient capital to
bay and stock emill fifths, than' to the
Norihero States Of the Union. He re?
commends tne ehaotment of a law pro?
viding tbat all persons who immigrate to
the State prior to the first day of March,
1875, and engage in the cultivation of
the soil, shall receive from the State
Treasury a bonus in money equal in
amount to the State and County taxes
assessed upon their cultivated lands and
farm: bttilOings; snob, bonus to be paid
annually, and to be oontinued for two
years after tl^e, cultivation of snoh lands
shall hare beeo'comcaenoed. This plan
contemplates the setting in motion a
ourrent of domestic immigration _ from
the Northern States of the Union to oar
own State; jn
He also cecomsassds, tbat in order to
encourage ' manufactories of cotton and
wool in this Slate, the speedy passage of ]
a law providing thafall saoh manufacto?
ries that may be .established within, the
limits of this State, on or before the
first day of Novoroer, 1875, shall receive
from.the Treasury of the State a bunas
equal.to the State tax assessed npon the
necessary -buildings, land and machinery
of said manufactories, euch bonos to be
paid annually, and to be continued for
five years after such manufacturing com?
pany, claiming the samo, shall have put
its factory into actual operation. As a
matter of equity, ho recommends that
the same bonus be allowed by law to
manufactories of cotton and woolen
goods, already established, for a like pe?
riod, commencing at the close of the
present, fiscal year.
The Governor postpones to a more
convenient season the consideration of
tho question of the publio debt, feeling
the embarrassment of the tangle in
whioh he finds it, with a bankrupt Trea?
sury and a shattered State credit. - We
observe that in connection with the
great attractions, whioh the State offers
to immigrants,'and whioh ho describe?,
he insists that taxes are not exorbitant.
He says that the present tax of fifteen
mills on the dollar is roally below that
figure, because of the great under?
valuation of property of all olasseB,
This is a grear.,mistake, and the Go?
vernor ooght not to dolude himself with
cherishing any such fanoies. Taxes are
heavy, oppressive, and almost unendur?
able, and property is assessed, in many
cases, at more than doublo its selling
value. A friend, who has lately fore?
closed a mortgage and bought in a plan?
tation for three or four thousand dollars,
and whioh will yield a very email income
until extensive improvements are made
so as to fit it for occupation and use, baa
to pay on it at the valuation of $16,000.
Were the Governor's, advanced views on
['fencing only adopted, places like that of
jour friend would become profitable to
work at once.' As it is, long lines of
fencing have to ha.run, in addition to a
iremorselesa tax, upon a valuation of at
.least fonr times the value of tho proper?
ty. No, -no; taxes are not low, assess?
ments orb not moderate. This is a cry?
ing evil, fox remedy of . which the pre?
sent State administration ought to work

Tbxas.? The recent ? triumph.of
Democratic party ia Texas is at loaded
bf a leasing end instruerttve result-the
?wbBidenoe of' political excitement 'and
disorder, and a marked restdraUoa of
peace. The defeat and overthrow of the
malignant party that kepi the Stats !n a
continual ferment of agitation and dis?
content has left the people their own
masters, and Texas has become as tran?
quil and orderly as any State of the
Union. The discussion of politics has
nearly disappeared from ita papers, and
they ure now talking of little ehe than
publio enterprises, railroad and bridge
building, cotton growing, public schools,
manufactures, and other similar health?
ful topics. So contented are the people
in the enjoyment of their regained rights
that they are beginning to forget and
torgivo the author of their lute wrongs;
they oven propose to let Go v. Davis go
out of office without the impeachment
which, at one time, tbey acriouBly medi?
tated against him, and which ho richly
deaerves. Tho new Legislature elect,
now about to assemble, will have a de?
cided Democratic majority io both
bouses, and might impeach und depose
Davis in prompt order if it wished to;
but some of tho loading papers are ad?
vising against this measure, and propos?
ing to let the Governor serve out his
term unmolested. The Galvestou Aretcs
thus discusses the question:
''But let us not be understood as say?
ing tbut Qov. Davis does uot deserve to
bo impeached and ousted from his high
office. He has been guilty of offences
against the great majority of our citi?
zens that, in many cases, were hnrd to
suffer. With commendable forbearance,
however, they have borne during the
past three years, aud despite the mnuy
acts of Davis aud his satellites, the Stutu
has grown in wealth and population as
never before. And this, too, when the
Democracy of the State was utterly una?
ble to prevent the extreme pressures of
the Radical administration. JSow Davis
is almost powerless, except in the mat?
ter of appointment*, aud these uro few
and uuimportant. If the obnoxious
measures passed by the last Legislature,
at the snggeation of Gov. Davis, cannot
be repealed, (he being likely to veto their
repeal,) their being put in force can be
prevented by failing to make appropria?
tions therefor.
"Why, then, uot allow him to finish
out his term? It ia but one year more.
Id that time, hemmed iu ou every side
by the Dsmooraoy, he will bo powerless
to do us harm. Why, then, attempt his
impeachment, and run the risk thereby
of being placed iu the helpless condition
of our sister State of Louisiana? Every
i o jo knows that Davis cannot be unseat?
ed without a struggle. His firbt move,
if it is uot already arranged, after his
impenohment, would be to call ou Gen.
Grant for assistance to retain him in his
position. What reasons have we for
supposing that the President would not
give him the required assistance? What
would follow? Probably thin: Tbat
Davis would retain bis office for four
years instead of one. This could not
fail to produoe unoasiness not only with
our own citizens, but with the capitalists
of tho North, who are cow investing
their means in tho construction of rail
toads and other internal improvements,
and would certainly stop the flow of im?
migration that ia ooming io from every
quarter of the Union as-well as Europe."
"Rekindliko Hatbeds."?It ia "offen?
sive" to Forney for the Southern people
to erect a monument to tho memory of
General Lee. He says:
"The Southern Generals were rebbls,
and it is contrary to every theory of go?
vernment tbat their memories, as such,
should be perpetuated in brass and stone.
In losing the war tbey lost all right to
renown as wurriors, and tho erection of
monuments to them amounts to nothing
elso than the assurance that the glory of
the South is her rebellion. It is not for
the good of the couutry that the young
men of. the South be taught their duty
to' the Government in such lessons as
would bo...learned from monuments to
Lee and Stonewall Jackson'. Wo uro
also told that such efforts 'rekindle
hatreds.'" 1 "
Wc do uot know what theories of go?
vernment havo to do with erecting a
memorial to tho man.whom Forney him?
self is obliged to stylo "a great man and
a bravo aoldior." Does Forney wiah the
work of Southern gratitude and admira?
tion stopped by Presidential ukase or
Congressional enaotment? His language,
in its soneeleas bitterness, would imply
as much.
A Washington telegram says: "Army
circles, aro somewhat agitated over the
bill just brought forward by Senator
Ames. In 1866, Congress passed a law
providing for four regiments iu the regu?
lar army, the enlistments in which to be
opened exclusively .to. colored men.
These regiments were doaigned for
Eofvi?o in such portions Of tho Sonthero
States, whore tho peculiar temperament
of - the black man enabled' him ; to witb

Saturday the coal yards of that city were

get any, if only a few bushels. On the
arrival of a train, with a few oars loaded
with coal, there was a charge by the
hungry individuals. Fortunately, the
South Carolina Railroad has enabled a
communication to be kept up between
Columbia and the' Pennsylvania coal
fields, so that a supply of anthracite coal
has been constantly coming, into the oity
via Charleston. The inconvenience that
a fuel famine causes to the rioh, and the
Buffering to the poor, however, and,. the
frequenoy with whioh such faminee fcuve
)ccurred in other places, should cause
some of tho. enterprising business men
A Columbia to devise i ways and means
to keep up a full supply'bf fuel?wood
and coal?in our city at all times, and
