. ? COLUMBIA. Friday Morning, February 2, 1866. Southern Manufactures. The New York H?fald says that the fact that this country is to become the greatest manufacturing country in the world "will be established, if j by nothiug else, by the very exist? ence of the immense water power in tl ie Southern States, especially in Virginia and the Carolinas, where the cotton fields are at the door of the . manufactories. Every bale of cotton raised here before long will be manufactured into fabrics in this country. We haye heretofore alluded to the | facts presented above. The Richmond Dispatch asks why do the rich staples of the Southern soil take up their line of march to the far-off rugged, regions, where nature is bleak and inhospitable, where the scanty streams and the rocky earth seem alike un? propitious to manufacturing and com? mercial enterprise? Is it because the energy of man rises with the obsta? cles which are interposed in his path, and takes a stern delight in wrestling with ...

Fontenoy-17*5. Thrice, at the huts of Fontenoy, the Eng- j Usu column failed, . And twice the lines of Samt Antouio, the Dutch in vain assailed; For town and slope were filled with fort and flanking battery, ? And well they swept tho English ranks and Dutch auxiliary, _ \a vainly, through DeBarn'a wood, tho British soldiers burst, The French artillery drove them back, ? diminished and dispersed. The bloody Duko of Cumberland beheld with anxious eye, And ordered up his last reserve, his latest chance to try; . On Fontenoy! on Fontenoy! how fast his generals ride! And mustering come bis chosen troops, like clouds at eventide. Six thousand English veterans in stately column tread; Their cannon blaze in front and flank Lord Hay is at their head: Steady they step a-down the slope-steady they climb the hill; Steady they load-steady they' fire, moving right onward still. Betwixt the wood ana Fontenoy, as thro' a furnace blast, Through rampart, trench and pallisade, and bullets showering fa...

COLUMBIA Saturday Morning, February 3,1866. Constitutional Amendments. The amendments of the Constitu? tion of the United States, the Bich mond Dispatch says, seem to Le re? garded by the dominant party in this country as the panacea for every evil which afflicts our social or political system. Is the "rebel debt" to be killed? Amend the Constitution. Is slavery to be forever abolished? Amend the Constitution. Are the negroes to be admitted to all the rights of suffrage everywhere? Let the Constitution be amended. In short, whatever the radicals want done, or do riot want done, they pro? pose to accomplish by amendment of the Constitution. They are like quacks who practice with a single species of patent medicine for the cure of all diseases; and whether a purge or emetic be required, they will in all cases administer the same dose, without diagnosis or prognosis. Under the manipulations of political charlatans, who prescribe an amend? ing plaster for everything, the great charter o...

Wo are pleased to observe in the advertisements of some of our mer? chants, that they ure determined to reduces the prices of the staple articles of consumption to a living minimum. The depreciation of the currency might have been a pretext for in? creased rates of merchandize, but this depreciation of the currency has ceased.. Gold bas fallon in price, and the local causes which made heavy articles of transportation cost a heavy per centage on their originial value, has passed away. The South Caro? lina Railroad is completed, and there is no reason why goods should be kept up at the old prices. The cur? rency is improving, and tho rates of freight are reduced, and nothing but the insatiable greed of gain can keep up prices. There is little or no money, and but little trade. Whatever little currency is in the market, is held by the merchants or shop-keepers, and they take advantage of this state of things...

COLUMBIA. Wednesday Morning, Feb. 7, I860. Taxe? of the So ii Ut cr ti St ?tea. Those who oppose the adr fission of members of Congress from the South? ern States, and thus deny the people of that section any representation in the Legislature of the country, to be consistent, should refuse-to accept the taxes levied upon this class of per? sons, for taxation and representation are inseparable under our form of Government. But this position is ignored, and the system of taxation is pushed on as vigorously as if the persons taxed were represented in a republican and constitutional manner in the National Assembly. The fol? lowing is an exhibit of the amount paid by the several States named during the last quarter of the year ending December 31, 1855, upon their quotas of the direct tax levied by the Act of Congress, August 5, 1865: Tonnessee.$ 50,000 North Carolina. 35,986 Louisiana. 20,986 Total.$106,972 The following named States are the only ones that have not yet paid something tow...
