Johnson, Supt. of the Charlotte Columbia, and the Wilmington, Columbia and Augusta R. R., have just returned from a tcurof inspection and a visit oi observation to Port Royal Harbor, and express themselves highly pleased. When such men are out hunting we may bo a sured that there is something in the windJudge King Is an extraordinary man mentally and physically. At the advanced age of eighty three years, he is as vigo.ousas most men at half the years, and mentally he is as bright and forcible as ever. Long may he wear his honors. This visit no doubt has reference to a South Atlantic route patronized by Ross Shepherd who has cast his eyes in this direction, and means that Port Royal shall receive impetus froui his capital. Sot a Technicality. TlIE correspondent of the A~ncs and j Courier, iu speaking of the case of Jame- I A. Rowley, who was acquitted on a j charge of receiving b.ibes by a kdin'cul j flaw in the indictment, cast a i effect ion on Hon. Robert Smalls, leproson;alive in Congress f?oui this distiict. It will be remembered in ih's case that the Solicitor wished to enter a 11 >1 pi but Mi. Stualls, knowing that if this was done insinuations and slurs would be made use of by his political opponents, and being conscious of lbs iiniccouce demanded a ! trial, which reached in his acjiiiial. not on a technically but a'?er tlie liict? o* tlie case bau been pro.*c?iccd to the jury. The eo: respondent of the Xac:, I musk have been awatc of these facts j when wiiting oi'tne fiowloy w e. ami yet i he asks: " P"d no Congiessmaii Smalls, slip tliiough the fioaus of the couit in just the same way. " ? Mr. Smalls has sent the follow "i?g em- j phutic letter to that journal : Washington. February 21, -S7o. j T> the Editor of Ike h'.ia cud Cau or ': Taking the ground that it is not your i intention to d. injustice to any one where your attention is called to the facts I would state that ujjon perusal of the j correspondence of bebiuaiy 17th i om Columbia to your issu s of ihe 10ih instant, I find that the fol owinc; ie itence at the close of the iccital in tlie c.ue of James A.

" i I take immediate oppc tuniiy to send ! you, iu reply to the above, the simple, but most emphatic declaration, "Ao.'" and would request you to tu?n to your! own Columbia corre.-pondeuce whereui it is expves>ly stated that the court, Jo.dye Carpenter presiding, did not instiuet the j jury to find a verdict of not <rui!rv iu con- j sequence of a Haw in the indictment, hit' on a clear and prima fade ea-c, and judgment was rendered, a cor !hi 'y. Know'nsr th** ' " " > * ^'ifo my ' intention of eoireeling the stan ment in the above mentioned reference of your Columbia co respondence of February 17th by the some correspond?nee of October Oth. I am yours, very truly, Hubert Smalls, i ? By all means let us have a Spartanburg and Port Royal R. R. We verily believe j that a connection with the incomparable ' deep water facilities of Port Royal either ; via Augusta as is proposed, or perhaps by | a more direct air line to Greenville (\ II. o Spartanburg. must precede and not fob 1 low anv successful on iAct to unite tin great west with our ocean front. Coin-j muuieation with Charleston simply, would not ' pay for the candle," and ol tors no greater facilities than are now pro posed to divert the western trade from jKirts it now uses. Port Royal unites all advantages beyond competition. The movement now on foot to locate a route from Spartauburg via Laurens to Augusta, while opening up one of the most fei tile and productive sections of the State to railroad communication with Port Royal, points the way to the natmal and most imperative necessities the west would claim for her interest in the enterprise ol Peking new and more attractive facilities for shipment. The tortuous ill projected m l badly constructed mute from the in tenor over the Greenville and Columbia R. R., wou'd 1 e out of the question, even if Charleston could for ^ moment been tevtained as the point of destination to which the wast would teal That villainously constructed route is subject to destruction by each spring freshet and inter uption all along its route by the very nature of its location. A new route there fore must be bad and a link of but one hundred miles from Augusta to Spartan burg would not only redound to the advantage ail along i's route but* would inspire the project of the western extcnI -ion from Asheville with some reasonabh hope of completion and perfection. We repeat that wc have no faith iu the sucj cess of the Spartanburg and Asheville R. i R., until the link is constructed to deep wilier facilities ami such are only to he got at Port Royal by the means we have indicated. The Custom House a* Beaufort. The House committee on public boil, dings and grounds has. before it the do!lowing bili making an appropriation for purchase of the necessary buildings for a cru-tomhouse, postoffiee, and other public offices at Beaufort, South Caro Una: Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled That the secretary of t e treasury bo, and he is hereby, authorize d and directed t purchase he lauds and buildings now o- cupied as a customhouse in Beaufort. South Carolina, together with auch ad joining property as may he necesary to provide accommodation for the office of the said c utomhouse, the postoffiee, and such other public offices as it may b? proper to established therein, including such wharves and buildings as may be required by the lighthouse board; and for this purpose there is hereby appropriated out of any money in the Treasury not otherwise appropriated, the sum of thirty thousand dollars, (if so much be necesary,) to be expended under the direction of the secretary of the treasury: Provided, that no mouey hereby appropriated shall be used or applied Jor the purposes mentioned until it shall appear that the State has duly released and relinquished to the I'm ed States the right to tax, or in any way assess, the site, or the property of the United States that may be thereon, during the time that the United States sha'l be or remain the owner thereof. Outrage iu Edgefield County. Ridgespriug in Edgefield county has gained an unenviable notoriety for outrages, on colored families, whi< h strange to say always occur during the years when an election is pending, with such regularity as m'ght justly lead to the conclusion that there is some "method iu their madness. A correspondent of the r /? ion Ilwiild gives details of at) affair that occurred there on the Uth of February, when some twenty five or thirty masked men visited 'lie house of a col J red man took out four of the family am! b.'at them unmercifully. The man's wile was stripped and after being whipped was tortured by having hot sealing wax dropped over her per&on. This hellish deed has been made light of l?v a portion of the opposition press in this S.ate. and the journal that published the facts lias been accused of throwing a " fire brand into a peaeeab'e e immunity. " By the Edgefield .\<h ert> .< ) this offence was palliated as the act of four or 1 yj rash a nd thoughtless boy-. 11-il.ii flip stati'inPiif. iti:if]p in flu* lfn-uhl is untrue and mischievous in the holies degree, but <.an they now deny its truth in the face of the following letter from Dr. Elisor, of Columbia, in answer to a tequost made by the governnor that he should examine one of the viethus of what the Adccrtiser calls "rash and thoughtless hoys " ? He says : Columbia, S. (\. February 1% 1876. Ifis Excellency D. II. ChtnnUtbiht, Governor of South CoroltiW. Dear Sir: In obedience to your comnmnication of this date, 1 have the honor to iejK>rt that I have carefully examined tho woman referred io ( Patsy (Jaidner ) and find that she has been recently burned in about one hundred places w:th some burning substance in a liquid or semiliquid state, on the posterior portion of her body, covering a superficies extending from the middle of the bac k down to about \ he middle of the lower third of the thighs, aid L; era y to a line dravn from tie .Guilder to the knee o.t either side Most of the sores are still covered with the inspissated contents of the blisteis raised by j the burning. Some are in a bleeding and others in a suppurating condition. I am . verv respectfully, J. F. Ensor, M. D. We have waited to see if there was a I 1 >vv-?* "v jonrn-il in this State who would have as much manhood and sense of justice as exhibited by the Augusta Chronicle and Sentinel which has on several occasion cotne boldly forth and condemned such outrages in Georgia, but not one has come forward. They are ill too busily occupied in talking of redeeming the State, of securing good gove ninent, of promises to the colored voter of protection and security of life and property, to speak one word of condemnation. No they pass it by, cast from them the paper that lays bare the fiet-\ with the remark "only niggers. they deserved what they got?been hog stealing, or into some mischief. " But until their journals do come forth j in condemnation, until these deeds I of" violence cease to disgrace this nineteenth century, these words of promise of j protection and security of life and prop1 crtv under the wing of their political p rty, will be scouted as vain and empty words. i # > The Lumber Business of Beaufort. This forms a very important branch of the trade and commerce of our enterprising town, and is st adily increasing in proportions, and the improvements that are being made at the old established mill of Messrs. D. C. Wilson, ?fc Co.. at Pigeon Point, and extensive work that has been done in the construction of the Atlantic saw mills of Messrs. Bobbins Boddington it Co., on Beaufort river, are prouiisiug signs for the future. We this week paid a visit to Pigeon Point, which as a mill site cannot be surpassed in the country. It is situated about one mile northeast of Beaufort, at the mouth of a creek running in from Beaufort ! river. It is a large two story building. 1 On the ground floor is located the boiler | and engine, which is of sixty horse power, with a stroke of forty-two inches, which furnishes the motive power for running a planing machine, saws, two shingle machines, and a lath machine. This mill has capacity for sawing 25,000 feet of boards per day. The shingle machines turn out 20,000 per day. The planing machine puts the finisning stroke on flnnrinnr. idanin<r and tnni'ir.nf and grooving at one operation. This company have almost completed a new wharf, 190 feet long, which Mr. William II. Devlin, carpenter and contractor of Beaufort is contruet ing. lie has recently built a pile driver with a drop of forty feet, in which he usesa hammer weighing 2,000 pounds. The piles in some places are driven seventeen leet. This wharf has from fourteen to fifteen feet of water at low tide, and when completed will be one of the mo.-t substantially built wharves in this section. It has been well said that economy is the source of wealth, and visitors to this mill see it illustrated on every hand. Space and time are economized by having first class machiuery conveniently arrant' ed, and all refuse matter is put to some use. The sawdust furnishes fuel for tin furnace, the butts of logs are sawn into shinghs, the slabs are made into laths and what material is unserviceable for such purpose, or is on hand in too grea' an abundance is sold in the towu for fire wood. This company is extensively engaged in shipping ship timber for northern market.* au<. do an extensive business in building material for the home market. Mr. Mason, who is general superinten ent, is a quiet unassuming man, however, he un derstands his business thoroughly, and a> a mill man and machinist in this line is above par. Mr. Ritcliie. the business manager received us in a most cordial manner, and we were much pleased with the general business air that pervaded the entire establishment The following morning we took a turn round the Atlantic Saw Mills, which allocated about a mile west of Beaufort in rhe beautiful bend, of the river, that lends such ah attraction to the harbor. The proprietors of this mill are Messrs Robbins, Boddington A Co., an English firm and the word "English" is stamped upon all their surroundings, in the soli* dity and durability of a'l their constructions, as far as they have progressed. The site selected by them is also a splendid locatiou for a saw mill. This is at the narrowest portion of the peninsula that is formed by Beaufort river and Battery creek, and lias been so arranged that advantage is taken of both the waters of the river and the creek. The logs, which are cut on land owned by this j tirm 011 the Oakatee river are brought j into Batterry creek in rafts to the railroad trestle, and from thence this company has constructed a canal leading to an ii cliued plane, up which the logs are ! drawn by steaui power directly to the ' saws. After leaving the saws the lumber i miis on a rolling bed 510 feet long, that ! leads down a bintF eighteen feet high to a dock from whence it is put into vessels owned by this company and shipped d'reet to Liverpool (Eng.) The 'machinery is run by an engine of eighty horse ! power, and they have facilities for sawing I logs sixty five feet in length. This firm have only had their mill running since the beginning of this year, but have already shipped very heavy cargoes ' of timber to the English Market. Mr. 1 R. F. Brown, is master mechanic, and 1 general superintendent, and the sawyer I Mr. J. E. Black.. We were unfortunate in not meeting any members of the firm, from whom we might have derived further interesting information, but from what wc saw of the present progress 1 at this mill, it is destined to be as fine a mill as there is in the country. ? ~ Another Fleet Review [Washington Cor. Baltimore Sun.] The navy department is now engaged in making arrangements prelim'wry to a series of fleet manoeuvres in t'-<* vie:nitv of Port Roya'. the rendezvov. o'the North Atlantic squadron. Dating*tie preparation necessitated by the critical re'a.i ns existing between the United State* ;n 1 Spain tpn Onhan n 'got*.-'linns :< fleet of twenty-eight vesselsof all classes including i m ujltors, was placed in readiness for ac-1 J tivc operations. In anticipation of this j emergency Rear Admiral John Rodgers. | familiarly known as "fighting John,' I then on duty at San Francisco, was ordered to report at Washington, with the' veiw of assigning him to the command of; ! the iron-clad fleet. The probabilty of com- j ' plications having disappeared, Admiral' Rodgers has returned to his post: the fleet, j however, is still maintained, the larger portion still at anchor at Norfo k. These ! ves-els which are mainly the iron-dads, as soon as the weather becomes suitable, will ! be ordered to join the rest of the fleet at : Port Koyal, when tactical operations will j commence. These fleet drills are considered j very essential to the efficiency of the navy, training it in harmony 01 action, and that the government desires to take advantage of this opportunity. The fleet will not be disbanded at the end of the drill unless , the situation in Spain aud Cuba assumes an attitude which would augur a perma nent settlement of subjects of controversy. ?(final 3totirf$.
