A weitkk in the New York Sun declares
the Mecklenbnrgr Convention of

resolutions to be forgeries.
Sherman thinks that if he can get
& solid delegation from Ohio, he will
secure the Eepublican nomination for
President at Chicago. The aspirant i?
Cykcs H. McCoRincK, the inventor
of the grain reaper, accumulated great
wealth without speculating in stocks
- or anything else. His estate is valued
at $32,500,000. He made it all iu -
r . i ' ^ '
legitimate business. And while he en
ricbed himself he enriched others and
benefitted the country at large.
Mahoxe must be out of pocket. He
lost several thousands on a horse race,
j?penfc $12,000 in his last disastrous
State election, and has been soaked
about $261000 by his eldest son's fail'
ure. But he probably made money

the failure of her husband and the
necessity for economy iii her domestic
relations she remarked: "I have lived
on the army rations once, and I can do
it again." Every fidnorable man will
feel sympathy for such a woman.
Charlotte Observer: It is right

A "Washington special io the New
York Herald says: "The report comes
from New York and was repeated on
the floor of the House to-day, among
Kepublicans as well as Democratic
members, that Mr. Tilden says he will

have been much less. Perhaps he
would not have been puuished at all.
The Washington Post's advices are
that Mr. Samuel J. Tilden is not a
candidate for the Democratic Presidential
nomination, and. be will not
accept it for himself; but he will
accept it for Mr. Henry B. Payne, of
Ohio, and it is to seenre a Tilden convention

Mr. Payne that the Tilden energies are

Sheriff Spoffokd, of Chesterfield

The Washington correspondent of

York, is the second choice of those
- who are crying for the -"old ticket.'
He can be confidently relied upon,
tbey belie' e, to bring- oat a larger vote

Borsheiiner. The News and Courier
savR fcditnri&llv of thft nhove statement:
"What Mr. Flower has done to cause
v Democrats to rally around his standard"
lias not been chronicled in the political
history of recent years. His name is
associated with no work of reform \
his pubKc acts hare been of no particular
importance: his ability as an Executive
has yet to be proved. On the
other hand, Governor Cleveland has
- made a record as a Reform Governor
which has won for him a place among
the foremost men of the times. Is it
because Mr. Flower is rich that he is'
. so aear co uie xuaen wmg 01 tne
Democracy? Do they desire to nominate
him on the streogth o~ his money
bags? We doubt that he is stronger in
the Empire State than Governor
Cleveland. He certainly is not so
' strong outside of the Empire State/'

Speaking of the State Normal Insti- !
tote to be held at Spartanburg next
month, the Carolina Spartan says:
Every teacher who can possibly spare
the time and money should attend the In- j
stitute in Spartanburg. Board may be ob- )
?ttn. tallied in private families at four dollars a <
t-ii m i-i
week for the session. It will be little t
higher at the hotels. The railroads gener- (
ally give reduced rates to teachers. The <
Institute wiH begin the 15th of J uly and 1
continue four-weeks. A Secretary will be
appointed, who will make all arrangements j
as to the securing of board. The fallow- j
ine are some of the reasons why teachers i
should attend: VC/"

2d. They will be the better prepared to
work after old" plans or to make new ones.
3d. The teacher's work tends to isolate
him from his fellows and the community.
One session at the Institute "will draw him
out and bring him into sympathy and harmony
with others engaged in the same
4th. They will have more exalted opinions
of their profession and work.
5th. Spartanburg is a delightful place to
fipend a- month or two in the summer.
Goovl water, mineral springs, fine drives,
pleasant nights and a bracing air make the '
place attractive. . ,
6th. An excursion to the mountains will
be made during the session. This is a. ,
revelation of wonderful scenery, especially
to persons who have never been in the
mountains. Special rates are given to
those who wish to run up on the Asheville 1
road on Saturdays and return Mondays.
7th. In a few words, it may be said that
the teachers' meeting in Spartanburg this
year, will be furnished with ample means
for improvement, recreation and social enjoyment."
The daily lectures by the rega- lar
faculty, the special lectures by distinguished
educators, and the teachers' meet-,
ings will furnish an amount of valuable
information that will compensate one for
the time an money spt nt in coming to Spartanburg.
Let there be a grand rallying of
the teachers of the State. It will do them
Noue can deny the many advantages
of the Institute, and it is hoped that
the meeting in July will be more largely
attended than any previous one.
The faculty has been chosen with
special reference to their experience in
the several branches upon which they
will lecture, and their instructions will
prove alike interesting and profitable.
We trust there will be a large dele
gat ion of teachers from Fairfield.
THE GHOST OF THB?\.
The great hue and cry all over the
country for the renomination of Tildeu
and Hendricks is certainly one of the
impenetrable mysteries of modern politics.
Row it is that thoughtful men
can honestly entertain the opinion for
a moment, that the renomination of the
"old ticket" is necessary to the salva
tion of the party, is also anexplainable
upon auy hypothesis, to us conceivable.
Against Mr. Tildeu, personally, perhaps
110 charge of a damaging character
can be established, and he was
doubtless the man for the campaign of
76, (though this is denied by many.)
But the times and the surroundings
have materially changed-, and the
issues before the American people demand
standard-bearers of a different
IfTildeu were again placed in the
field, the great fraud of 76 would
dwarf all other questions, and questions
too of greater moment and importance.
There was in 1880 a great
tie gpon that issue, <;nd perhaps it
would have beea wise then to have
placed Tilden an i Hendricks in the lead
again, but the Convention let the
chance slip by, and Hancock and English
led the grand old party to defeat
and crushing disaster. Hence we say
let the fraud issue sleep forever?it has
slept long and soundly and its slumber
OUUUiU UUb HIM? LfC VUOVU1L/VU* JL& c*
great wrong and fraud was then perpetrated,
it has now become a damnum
abquc injuria, and the sooner, the
Democratic party realizes its truth, the
better it will be for the health of ^Jr.
Tilden and the good of the couutry. If
then the fraud issue is to be relegated
to the past, certainty no very strong
reasons exist why Tilden should be
brought to the front again. The pre
eminfent abilit; x the man, and withal,
his great public services to the party
aiul nation has won for him the gratitude
of his fellow-citizens everywhere,
but lik physical condition renders his
candidacy impracticable and visionary.
Besides, in the event of his nomination, :
as we have before intimated, no other ?
great question than that of the '76 1
fraud could be properly argued in the i
campaign and passed upon at the polls, j
The issue before the country (
is the tariff, and if the Democratic j
party would court victory, it must j
selcct for its standard-bearers men who :
have been and are now prominently
identified with the cause of tariff reform.
Mr. Tildcn is perhaps sound on
this question, but he has taken no
prominent part in its agitation aud discussion
and consequently would not be
the proper man to lead a tariff reform
party. - ; .
These, arc oar re&sous for hoping
that the National Democratic Conven- j
tion will not renominate the "old ,
THE XEXICAX PESSIOX BILL j
The bill for pensioning the surviving
veterans of the Mexican war has been *
called up in the Senate at last, and }
debate upon its provisions beguu. The <
several votes taken upon amendments <
introduced for the purpose- of killing 1
the bill indicate the fact that it will !
pass the Senate substantially as it j
came from the House. There was
considerable discussion upon Senator
Logan's motion to strike out that part
of the amendment proposed by the
Senate pension committee, which limits
the pension to ex-soldiers and exsailors
who are dependent in whole or
part on their own labor or on assist
ance from others.
Seuator Allison said giving a pension
to women who should, after the
passage of this Act, marry ex-soldiers
of the Mexican war would be establishing
a precedent that had not been
observed as to prior wars.
Senator Beck remarked that the
youngest of the Mexican veterans was
how 62 years old, and if he married at
all after that time he would be sure to 5
marry a young woman, and under tfce
proposed" amendment wc should have 0
to pay this young woman a pension as
iong as she "lived. :
Senator Logan inquired why it was
assumed that he would marry a young .
woman. . 1
Senator Beck replied "Because that 2
[s the rule with old men and the older
the man the younger the woman he
Bill marry. I would not even trust
he old members of this Senate. If']
hey were to marry again, I have no .
loubt thev would marry verv young
Senator Jackson, supporting the [1
;ommittee's amendment excluding! <
rom pensions men who did not need 11
hem, said he represented as many (
Mexican soldiers as any man in the
Senate and he did not believe that 1
pensioning for service was a correct '
principle. Pensions should be given
io the wounded, aged and needy. The
Senate committee's amendment provided
for that. It was no stigma on a '
man's character to say that if he . had 1
income enough to rSnder him inde- <
pendent of labor he should not have a (
Senator Blair also defended the committee's
Lo?an, as was to be expected,, opposed
giving any pension to soldiers
Df the Mexican war who afterwards
fought in the Confederate army. ^
Senator Call thought that Mexican
soldiers who were rich enough to live
without some form of labor were not
numerous enough to make it worth
while to make them an exception to
the bill. He also favored the clause
spying pensions to widows who married
Mexican soldiers not ouly before
the soldiers' discharge but at .any time
Senator Maxey regretted that the
pauper clause had been added to the
bill. He was opposed to it and asked
how the Hue could be drawn.

hope that the bill would pass as it

350,000,000 acres, the territory of an
empire, to this Republic, yet we were
here, dickering with the poor Mexican
soldier as to whether we should give
him the paltry .sum of a month unless
he went clown on his knees and
begged for it and produced a certificate
of his poverty. Senator Morgan expressed
himself as mortified and disgusted
at the spectacle presented in the

Morgan would give way for a question.
Senator Morgan said yes, and"
Senator Van Wyck remarked that he
would like to-ask . the Senator from
Alabaraa a question just at this point,

Senator - Morgan retorted warmly
"Don't insult me when you want to
ask a question; ask ine your question
like a gentleman."
- Senator Van Wyck said that there
was no occasion for so much feeling
on the part of the Senator. He then
inquired whether it was just to give a
wealthy man wiio had been a Mexican
soldier $8 a month and give only that
small pittance to" a poor fellow who
had aimost to beg his bread in tne
Senator Morgan thought it would be
no cause of complaint to the rich, but
would be a great boon to the poor
Senator Iugalls moved to lay on the
table the amendment proposed by the
Senate committee restricting the pensions
to those who depended on their
labor. The motion was agreed to and
the amendment laid on the tableyeas

FOJtMATIOX JLSD REFOBMA TIOX.
Although to the eye the ODly difference
between these two words consists
in prefixing two letters to the latter,
vet iii the- ideas conveyed by them
there is a much greater difference.
One involves the formation of principles
of action, the oiLcr the correction
of those principles. One is the formation
of habits, based npon such principles,
the other is the correction of
habits after they hare been formed.
Formation is easier, more certain, and
more permanent than reformation. In
reformation oar. success is far less certain.
For here we have to contend

Peas Sis?I have the pleasure of ac
knowledging your letters of January
and February, and rejoice to know
that many more in Fairfield are "cultivating
a desire for labor" in this
dark and benighted land, in order that
they may be an instrument in the hand
of God to make known his glad tidings.
Since the reception of my letters they
think that the work is not so far off.
It is not. It is only a matter of time
and space. It makes but little. difference
where a person spends his few
days of pilgrimage, for it seems that
God is now rapidly bringing the ends
of the earth together. As the Synod's
missionary, give me Africa forever.

shadow of death! I have been accused
by some: of having the wrong idea
about Africa, and that I made a mistake
in choosing the field of labor. I

that I am sane, and did not. decide

cheerful heart and willing mind I

convinced us of such in the history of
the Jews? Joseph's brothers meant
evil in selling Dim in jogypc^oui wu
meant it for good; the Romans persecuted
the Jews, bat in every city they
went they proclaimed, "Jesus of Nazareth,
the King of the Jews!" If I
can get any light from the history of

our own day and generation.

Fairfield to be felt throughout her

I have already planted myself here,

move me. I count not my own life
dear when I view the less fortunate

In 1881, while'sewing on a machine, my
wife was taken with a severe pain in her
side, which was soon followed By hemorrhages
from her lungs, severe cough,
fever and she could neither eat or sleep,
and in a few weeks she was reduced to a
living SKeieton. jo.er siomacn reiuseu w
retain any food and the physician thought
one of her lungs was entirely gone. At a.
final consultation of two physicians her
case was pronounced hopeless. I tried
Brewer's Lung Restorer by advice of one
of. the physicians and she began to improve
after tlie third dose% She continued the
medicine and is now'in excellent health,
and is better than she has been in several
years. I believe Brewer's Lung Restorer
