Tho Nino Million Bill.
It ia pretty dear that tho nine million
railroad bill; or bill taking nine million
dollar* of the people's frmdi trom the
state treasury for tho benefit of railroad
corporations, will be sprung u;n the
legislature, before the adjournment, snd
an attempt made to rush it through. Mr.
Olmstead, a member of the house, now car
ries the bill in hi* pocket, and it i- tlie
same in its general features as that pascd
by the legislature last winter, and vetoed
by the goveuor on account ofits nnu.str >i
ty and unconstitutionality. Now let the
bill come up in what shape k tuay , the
principle is wrong and cannot a\ oid being
grossly unju-t to a large proportion 01 the
taxpayets *if tho cosnmonweii.tu, aud it i
also in direct oppoatiou to the s.-nttiuval of
t'te gicat majority of the people oi our
state, saying nothing about its being so
clearly in violation of the constitution, in
view facts, any member of these voting for
this bill, deserves to be stoned by his con
stituents, if over he should have tho audia
city to return from llarri-burg.
One main objection there is to this bill i-,
that it is in direct violation of a Who provi
sion of our state constitution. Another
great objection is, that the funds taken
from the state will bo applied, not for the
immediate relief and benefit of the taxpay
ers who might be as? > ted in needed improve
ments but will go directly to aid rich ccr
porations at the expense of the partic- fVom
whom it is Uken and for whoso direct bene
fit it should be applied. If th. funds of
the state are to be abstracted at all.
Centre county needs improvetne: t< as
much as any county in the -laic, ai.J i as
deserving as any other section, ye. we ven
ture to say that n : n farthing w ill bo set
apart in this 9 million bill in direct aid of
the people of our county, in making the
improvement they have been clamoring
for the last twenty years, namly, the con
struction of the L. C- !t S. C. BK. On the
other hand, should provision be made in the
bill to aid our road, in order to allay the
opposition of our people, we venture to say
it will be in such a shape as to deceive, and
the sum bo appropriated to the corporation
outside, nlMtisy /, and leaving the bur
den now resting upon our shoulders, hang
there to grind our people for year- to
come, ir ie state wwurtttes must bet
thrown away let it b* done in the t
objectionable ruaaer, let them bo thrown
for the immediate benefit of the taxpayer,
and not into the lap of princely corpora
tions, who have already gr.-.u fat by flee
cing the public.
But, barring the unconstitutionality of
this measure, we contend that the princi
ple, in this commonwealth, at least :s in :
violation of every principle of justice, as it
appropriafr* fund-, belonging to the peo
ple in common, towards buildiug up sec
tions remote from other portions that will
leeeiveao benefit therefrom, directly or
indirectly. We cannot see where is the |
justness of building up one section of the.
state at the expense of the other. If any •
portion of the state needs a railroad, let that
portion build it out of its owr means, as it
expects to receive every benefit arrising
from such improvement. As this question j
has been before the people for more than a
year, we do not think itnecessary to enlarge
upon it. W e know thai the peopleofCen
tre county are almost a unit in opposition
to the 51 million bill, and wea'soknow that
this is true of the people of every county in
the state, and this is sufficient ground for
the defeat of the bill.
As senator AVallaro is the leader on the
democratic side in the senate, hi course
will be followed by the majority of demo
cratic senators, bence great responsibility
rests upon him. AVilliam A. h aiiace, we
believe, has it in his power, by virtue of
the confidence reposed in him by his fellow
democratic senators, who will be guided by
his action, to defeat this bill. We will wait
and see. ,

with a rather merry "N. B," we think
Gen. Beaver who by the way, is one of the
warmest Sabbath school men in Centra
county, will allow us to speculate a little
• as to what may be realized by the Corn Co.
Now 24,000 grains of corn make just nine
(9) quarts, and these divided up into 24
grain packages will make just 1000 pack
ages. To apply for these, as above, will
require just 1000 letters, at S3O for postage,
and to send the corn on application, will
require another 1000 letters, costing anoth
s3o—making a t*tal of s<so in postage, on
9 quarts of corn. Then it will require 2000
envelopes, and at least COO sheet* of paper,
at an additional cost of $5. Thus making a
total cost of $65 for postage, envelopes, and
paper for sending out 9 quarts or 24,000
grains of corn, there being 2600 grains to
the quart. Now we grant that each grain
of this mission corn ttn yield one good
sized ear, which would bring a rciuru of
24,000 ears next fall, and as we have eounl.
Ed 90 ears to the bushel, would make 206
bushels in the ear. which, at 00 cents, a
fair average price, for the

views and received tho follow ing letter in ,

extreme men will accept the views here ex
pressed. but the fact* are beyond all que*- '
tiou, and they arc them selves the argu
ment and illustration:
75. the Editor of the AW York Ohssrrer:
As a patriotic citizen, a* well as the editor '
of a journal of wide circulation and ex ten- .
tire influence, it is j our duty, and I have
no doubt it is your desire, to obtain all the
information in your power as tothe history
of the disturbances prevailing in South
Carolina as well a* their origin and the
remedy fbr them. For this purpose I pro
po*e to furni-h you some aid. (>
There i* one que-tion in the eon-idem- {
lion oi this subject, fundamental in it* na
ture, and yet to bo solved, whether twora- _
ees can live together on terms of equably j
in the same country' and under the aamej;
system of laws, who are o**entwlly ditf*- j,
rent in origin, color, habitsanJcivilixation-
When to lhe<ecircumstances are added the
fact* that one people for centuries and un
til lately have been the slave* of tbe other p
that the latter look upon the former as its *
inferior, and rcfu*e to intermarry or amal
gamale with it, the problem becomes much
more difficult. History furniahea us with
no in-tances of the kind. Some of the wi
sest statesmen and philosophers have main
i tatnr-4 *hat sttch a *ato of equality is im- •
practicable. These were the sentiniements
of Mr. Jefferson. M. De Toequertlle and
Sir Samuel White Baker, the iiuuuusAtri
ean traveler, n reference to tho very.race* c
now under consideration. M. De Tocque- ii
rille state* that the prejudice* and anti- ii
[sathie# of tbe whites agaiust the negroe* j
were stronger in the free slates than in the (j
! slave slate*. Hi* ra*on for this are plausi
ble, Htid are now equally applicable to [
the southern *tate*. As a proof of the to- j
nacioos character of this antipathy, we may t
refer to the statement of Mr. Trollope a* to e
the condition of the 1-land and Barbadoes. (
; Although the negroe* had been ematieipa- .
! ted for twenty-five or thirty years, and |
j though persons of educationand good man
j ners. having scarcely a trace of African j
i blood, were invited by the governor to his
ball* and receptions, yet the pure w hitcs of
! the island persistently refused to recognize
socially these persons, because cf their ori
gin. Not long since an editorial article *'
appeared in the Nation, one of the ablest e
and most reliable republican papers in the
country, in relation to the difficulties at ?
West Point, connected with the colored 1
cadet The editor, although deploring the '
prejudice which exists against the negro 4
race, apologized for the conduct ef the I
white cadet* in that matter. Hi* opinion !
was that the young men of that institution t
should not be censured for not doing what I
their fathers, mothers, uncles, aunt* and
cousins would not do, viz; raise a colored t
person on terms of social equality, lie i
further stated that if all tbe white persons [
in the United States who are williugto, and (
( actually do* treat colored people on term* |
of social equality could bcgatheredtcgcth- |
cr they could be contained in a moderate ,
sized room. But it will be said that this it >.
van unreasonable and wicked prejudice,i|
which ought to be eradicated. Some wUei,
and gxd men doubt this, but granting it i,
to bo true, the fact of tho existence of the | J
prejudice still remains. Practically, the
' effect of the feeling is the same, whether it 1 1
be just or unjust.
If tbe two race* cannot live peaceably,
together on terms of equality, then ont i
1 mu-texit in subordination to the other. As,
to which should be superior and which in- :
ferior, it would seem there c<>ald bo nel 1
, hesitation in the mind of any intelligent j
| white man.
Leaving this topic let n* consider the im
t mediate cause* of tho late and present dis
-1 turbances in this state. They may be clas- '
•ed under several heads, viz: Tho igno- I
, rancc, corruption and extravagance of the 1
legislature, and of nearly all tho public 1
' officers; the heavy taxes collected from a '
[ poverty-stricken.people; the exclusion of <
i nearly all the the old citizen* of the state i
- from office; taxes laid by those who |y no I
: taxes upon tbosu who pay all, and more 1
, immediately, the organizing and arming of <
t the negroes last summer when nothing of <
the kind was done for the white*. I
, The state authorities were warned by |
\ discreet gentlemen that the later measure
■ would result in mhchcif, and the conse- ,
1 quence* which were foretold have followed.
, Bad blood was stirred up, and bitter were (
- the fruit* of it.
Consider the question of taxes, atway* a
tender point with freeman. Tho intelligent,
property-holding citizens have no share in
f the legislature of the state. The are taxed
by ignorant paupers and by strangers.
B The taxes are enormous, considering the
j circumstance*, and much greater than be- 1
k fore tho war, in the dayA of their prosperi
t ty. The writer may be excused for allud
i, ing to an instance in bin personal knowledge,
3 byway of example: A gentleman paid
9 his state and county taxes for 1669, amount- 1
Ing to $76. The same gentleman has just 1
t paid his taxes for 1870, amounting to $.'500,
j His property now is about one third of its 1
. value in 1859. This make- hi- tuxes now
1 about twelve times greater than in 1859.
Look at the criminal extravagance of the
I legislature. An instance or two must suf
. lice. It was stated without contradiction, i
, by respectable gentlemen in a meeting i
) where several high state officials were i
present, that the expenses of the legislature '
i before the war averaged about $45,000; I
1 this last scssjoc bills werepassed for expert* I
I ses amounting to $400,0001 The item of I
i stationery before the war did not exceed I
i S6OO per session: last session the bill for I
1 that purpose was $16,000. About one Jiuri- 1
tired and twenty altaehes of the legislature
' arc now paid ; formerly ten or twelve were '
' ample. As to the officers, we might de- j
scribe our county officials as an average.

' Before the war the people of South Car
dm* were emphatically a law abiding peo

A letter from Stooe Fort, Valine,
county, Illinois, furnishes the follow
ing particulars of a crime that rivals
in atrocity the fiendish murders ot
Probst and Traupman. The letter is
dated March 26:
"This morning our little lotfn was
thrown into intense commotion by the 1
intelligence that an entire family of
the naiuu of Dakinn had lieen uiurder-,
ed last night at a point some three
miles southeast of this place. As soon
as I heard the news I mounted my
horse and visited the scene of tragedy,
a small log hut of one room on the
land of Mr. Jerry Foley.
It stands in the miilst of a small
clearing of, I should judge, an acre
and a half in extent, surrounded on
all sides by an almost unbroken for
est It lies about three hundred yards
from the county road, from which it i*
reached by a bridle path. On reach
ing the hut I found about a dozen men
<>f tbe neighborhood, all terribly exci-j
ted, and looking tbe horror each one
felt. Dismounting and hitching my
horse, I entered the hut, and hope
that it may never be my fortune to
look upon a similar spectacle.
On uud diagonally across some old
quilts aud blankets, stretched upon a
rude framework in the corner of the
right hand as you eutcr the door, was
the body of a woman apparently thir
ty-four or thirty-five years of age with
her throat cut and hacked in a fearful
manner, the jugular veins, windpipes,
arteries, everything severed, aud the
head only held to the trunk by the
vertebrae. There was a deep incision
j across the palm of the right hand, as
though a sharpc knife had been sud
denly drawn through the clenched
Several deep and long cuts were up
on her shoulders and breast, hut no
where cottld be discovered any stabs,
-bowing that the murder was not com
mitted with a sharp-pointed instrument.
Near the fire-place, with her head
partially in an old skillet lay a fair
i haired little girl of soma ten or twelve
years of age, with her throat cut from
ear to ear. In the corner farthest
from the door, and on the same side
of the room where the woman was ly
ing, on a pallet, evidently where the
children slept at night*, lay the bodies
of two little boys, one across the other,
aged respectively about seven and five,
both with their throats cut. On the
iloor, near and partially under the bed
where the woman lay, was the body
of another little girl, apparently not
more than three years old, her head
nearly severed from her body. Such
was the horrible spectacle that greet
ed my sight on entering the hut.
The floor, the walls, the few articles
of furniture, everything in and about
the mioirable apartment, were deluged
in blood. From indications, the wo
man's struggle for life mutt have been
protracted and furious, until she suc
cumbed from locs of blood, or a disab
ling stroke from the instrument oi
slaughter. Bloody tracks on tho door
sill, and a trail of blood leading in a
northeasterly direction from the
house, pointed out the course of the
murderer's flight. Pursuing parties
started on the trail, hut did not pro
ceed more than one hundred yards be
fore they came upon the second sequel
and end of this terrible tragedy of the
The body of au infant not more
than a year old lay partially clasped
by the left arm of a man, it having
shared the fate of its mother, brothers
and sisters. The man, who was no
other than Dakins, was also dead,
with a ghastly wound ncross his
throat. His blood-stained shirt,
pants, nud a razor lying nenr the
body, where it must have fallen from
his hand the momcut after inflicting
the fatal wound upon his throat, pro
claimed him to he the author of the
wholesale butchery of his family, dis
patching his own guilty soul to the
other world swiftly after the shades of
his victims.

Iu bis message to Congress yester*
, Jay, savs the N. Y. Suu, President
Grant fulfils the promise forced out of
him by the danger of defeat in Con
necticut. He semis in the report of
the San Domingo Commissioners with
out attempting auy argument in favor
of annexation, and without asking
that it should now be carried through.
So far as we can recollect, this is
the first time that Ceo. Grant has
turned and retreated since he resigned
from the army in California in IHA-4,
to avoid a worse conclusion. It must
have been hard for him to yield to the
will of the people, aud let San Domin
go slide. How sincerely he must have
wished, as he sigucd his uame to this
message, that he had long ago takeu
the friendly advice of The Sun and
kept out of this discreditable scrape
altogether. Then he would have sav*
*ed the 8150,00 ft which he has unlaw
fully paid to llaez as a year's reut of
the worthless Day of aamaaa; be
j would have avoided the high misde
i meanor of taking part in a civil war
. in a foreign country with out authori
ty from Congress: lie would have been
. free from suspiciou, which no white
■ washing reports cau wipe off, of hav
i ing pushed this sheme merely to en*
• rich a few greedy favorites and cron
, ies: he would escaped the quarrel
dwith Mr. Sumner, by which Grant
'alone has been injured; and he would
I uot have lieeu subject to the necessity
> of this humiliating abandonment of a
i! project so obstinately loved and so
. senselessly promoted.
i This message has some queer fi at
, ures which we will not now comment
.'upon. The n*umntion of the Presi
, dent, however, that he and his
. crouiesare cleared from all suspicion
of a busiuess interest in annexation is
• verv simple. The Commissioners
havo discovered no proof that Gen.
> Grant, or Gen. Ingalls, or Gen. Dab
cock, or < Jen. Dent, or any other Gen
\ ernl in particular, was to make any
! money out of San Domingo. Of
y course was no such evidence for them
# to discover. The speculators who got
. up this scheme, and succeded iu enlist
i ing Gen. Grant with such surprising
| pertinacity in its consummation, were
/not fools enough to leave their tracks
* uncovered. leaving out of view the
; mines, the privileges, the steamboat
! lines, the railroads, tho water lots, the
; banking monopoly, and the right of
. I importing goods free of duty, here w as
1 Baez who stood to clear about half a
million iu gold bv annexatiou. Who
. can tell with whom he had bargained
. to make a square divide? All thisjbe
-1 longs to the secret history of tho intri*
/gue: but no sensible man cau reject
. the moral convictioa that such inllu*
j ence played a great part in this strange
. and unaccountable affair.
c Now that, thanks to the independ*
3 cut press and independent members ol
t! the Senate, the project has been sub
e stantially squelched, Congress should
. at once pass such resolutions as those
e lately offered by Mr. Sumner, con*
s detuning the employment of naval
-/fortes on the side of Dacz, and putting
.' a poremptory stop to all such usurpa
eltions on the part of the President.

v .Gen. Lro In Mexico—A Thrilllne
; t j Incident
j When Gen. Scott commanded the
h'army in Mexico, it became necessary
. to explore a mountain that lay lietwcen
| him and the enemy's camp. It was
s!one of those lofty peaks whose summit
ticleftlhe clouds, and reached the re
d giotu of eternal snow. The sides were
1 precipitous, and clad iu a tangled wcl
rjlof brushwood and rugged rocks, which
t/mnde the ascent seem perilous, if not
>.( impossible. There was some difficul
ty, therefore, in finding an officer bold
r enough to undertake the task. At last,
n a young lieutenant stepped forward
c nnd offered his services. He was ac
r cepted, and having selected n small
s company of men set out for tha moun
. tains. They foundjit more unpromh*
i. ing than even their fear had foreboded
J There was no sign of a path, no tract
e to show that human footstep bad trod
the toilsome ascent. They used both
o hands and feet with diligence, swiug-
J ing themselves up by the undergrowth,
t climbing over rugged rocks, or mak*
a ing a toilsome journey around them,
o till one after another gave up, and de
termined to make the nest of his way
g back Before half the ascent was ao
, complished tho young leader was left
B alone. Most men would have given
j up iu utter despair. Not so the young
, lieutenant. There was a heroic fire in
„ his breast not to be quenched by difti
2 cullies, however arduous. He paused
. long enough t<> take breath, and away
• be went again.
| , The path became wilder and wilder,
but our hero, like Milton's fiend,
i), "O'urjhuz and -la-I>, throng} straight
rough dense, of rare,
With lu-ttiL or hiißttn, or leetj f<,ir*ttt-shi
r- way,
ig And ink, or.,m*or wades,|rcreafi>,"
I till he viand* panting ua the icy sum
y, tuit. There was n moment's pause of
y .exultation, ns he saw beneath his feet
f. the clouds that, n few hours since, had
f. seemed so far above him. Hut the
u broad summit was v< t to be explored,
and he hastened on. The i rifn-d air
ir affected him paiuiullv, and the cold
s was iutruse. Juntas immediate dca
ll cent hecume a matter of life and death,
lie discovered that the whole tuoun
i. tnln skje wnv a shfet ef ice. There w*
y no time for thought, any death scented
v preferable to tlto one which would
- overtake him if delayed a moment
0 With a hasty prayer he threw himself,
j feet foremost, oil the slip|ery surface.
I Down,down, he went,at a dizzv, breath-
J less speed. The clouds passed upward
aud became sky ouce more, a id away
J down below, stretched a deep, clear
It lake. There was not a tree or shrub
(3 to break his course, and death seemed
u inevitable. Down, down, down! —
* hut lo! the ieo prow s thinner and thin
ner, it softens, it cracks, and his feet
. are planted in firm, moist earth, on the
| verge of the lake that had so ueirly
a been his grave. The sun had melted
x tho ice just enough for it to give way
| in time to save him.
t Since then he has stood on a more
, perilous height, the summit of fame,
3 gained by tho same dauntless courage
| that characterised his youthful explo t
, —for the young lieutenant was Robert
c K. The substance of the above
, incident was related by himself during
, the summer sojourn at the Feaks of
s Otter, in Virginia, a short time before
g his death.
. Death from a Snake Uite -Fatal
The following is from the Lances
, ter dailies: On Friday last the fune
| rai of an elderlv lady, uaiued Myers,
took pluoe at Rohrcrstuwu, and was
r largely attended. She was a resident
. of that village, was eighty years of age,
[ and her death was caused froy.3 tltecf
. fects of a snake bite. f,' U e had gone
, to a pile of chips am) was gathering
j some to make a fire with, when he
r was stung or bitten in the hand by a
, snake—it is suppuecd a copperhead.
. Her arm immediately afterwards be
t came swollen lo the shoulder, and she
, died two days after she had been bit
. ten.
A sad accident occurred on -Satur
day morning lust, resulting in th
death of Martin High, au interesting
lad aged about thirteen years, and son
of Georgo J. High, recorder of this
t county. It seems the hoy was sent on
j. horseback tea blacksmith shop, and
when returning the horse toek fright
.'at a pas*ig vehicle, the curtaius of
wdiirh were flapping in the wind, and
" j threw hit young rider violently to the
_ j ground, fracturing his skull. He lin>
> j gemi until ten o'clock in tbeevciiiug,
' when denth relieved him of his suffer
' 1 ings. The accident occurred uear the
| j store of Kryder A Landis, on the
Horseshoe road, about one mile from
* the residence of Mr. High. The boy
was picked u]i h) a mau named Aug.
Germ ley, and corivcyed to his home.
He was n bright bov and leaves a void
in the hearts of his afflicted family
' which ucver can be filled
1 t
' Senator Motion's prcmediiatod ser
' coade in Washiugtou tlie other day is
Selling a lift all over the country. He
oes not appear to be a success this
f time in the way of developing issues
' for the Fresideulial fight iu 18i2. The
' JV. Herald rattles hun over the |>ale
' as follows :
It looks, indeed, from the proceed*
1 iogs of this meeting, the acliou of Con
gress and the general course of the par
ty, as if the Ku Klux spectre is to be
' made the main issue before the people.
- Au effort is strenuously tuade to fast-
I en some of the manufactured Ku Klux
' oppiobrium upon the Democrats. This
I Ku Klux, it is thought, will be a good
' enough Morgan for the Republicans
1 until after the Fresidenlial election in
1 1872. Another monstrous bugaboo
-Senator Mortou calls up to alarm the
- voters is that the Democrats repudiate
1 tho national debt. What savs the
Democratic city of New York, where
* the greater part of the debt and tinau
* ciai operations of this country are con*
* ceutrated, to this ? It is more likely
*, that Mr. Morton's section, the West.
* would repudiate the debt more than
- the Democrats. Dut there is uo fear
- that aDy party in this country will cu
' tcrlain such a thought. The Senator
f boasts of the Republican administra
-1 tiou having paid off a considerable
t amount of debt, but lie forgets to tell
- us this has Ix-cn done by wriugiug four
? or five hundred millions a year out of
? the hard earnings of the American |w
* pie. Iu fact, the wfiole of the Repub
" licait platform, as laid down by Mor*
t ton, is negative. He projioscs no
® great measures. He brings forward
f no popular issue. He aud the admiu
s istration partv expect to flourish upon
1 the old war issues that are obsolete,
J and all their offorts now arc diricled to
I galvanize the dead past. No great
>- party can exist long in that way.
* General Grant, -Speaker Colfax, Bcna*
t tor Morton and the little circle of their
■* friends at the Washington meeting have
c opened the campaign of 1872, but it
has yet to bo seen if other prominent
* lenders of the party will accept their
'f action or follow them. The race is not
" always lo tho swift. Vast changes
d may take place in the course of a year,
e and these gcutlcmen may yet discover
•j that they started too early.
g A POSITIVE FACT. —An ingenious
* mechanic in New Orleans constructed
a sate which he declared to absolutely
burglar-proof. To convince the in
? credulous of the fact, he placed n
thousand dollar bill iu his pocket, had
e himself locked iu the safe, and declur*
y ed that he would give tho money to
n the man who unfastened the door. All
s the blacksmiths, and carpenters, and
it burglars in the stale of Louisiana have
* been boring nnd blasting and beating
e at the safe for a week with every kind
b of tool and exploitive mixture known
h to science, and the man is iu there
>t yet. Ho has whispered through the
* key hole that lie will make the re*
d ward ten thousand dollars if somebody
t, will only let him out. Hcbas convin
d ed everybody that it is the safest safe
ever invented. Fears are entertained
II that the whole coucern will have to
1- be melted down in a blast furnace be*
* fore he is released, and efforts are to
I. he made to pass in through the key
e hole a fire-proof jacket to protect the
d inventor while the iron is melting.
[* The fallowing ares orac of the few
1, mistakes which suggest themselves to
- the publisher of a newspaper :
1, It is a mistake to suppose that the
' subscription price of a paper is clear
y gain to the publisher.
It is a mistake to suppose that he
t obtains his white papor tor nothing,
* It is a mistake to suppose that a pa
