John Kelly, the noted leader of the
Tammany Democracy, died at his
home in New York on Tuesday. Although
his health has not been good
for some time his death was not ex
pected. Perhaps no political leader
had more influence in the city of 2sew
York than John Kelly. He had many
virtues which will live after him.
The Supreme Court on Thursday
heard argument upon the motion of
F. TV. Fickling, of the Columbia bar,
to disbar TV. H. Lvles, Esq., from
practice before the Supreme Court, for
the alleged crime of perjury in the

dismissed the rule, as without foundation
for an order to be issued.
While Capt. S. M. Saunders, of the
New York Grand Army of the Republic,
was in Savannah during the late
centennial, he proposed the health of
Jefferson Davis on one occasion. His
action on that occasion has very much
enraged his comrades, who,communications
have passed between
him and the commander of the post.
Captain Saunders says he acted as an
individual and nas notbing to regret.
Both the Democratic and Republican
parties are pledged ia their platform
of 1884 to a revision of the tariff
laws. Now we hear of recommitting
the bill without debate. The laws
should be settled one way or the other,
aud not have it as a subject for discussion
at every session of Congress.
Those members who oppose reform,
whether Democrats or Republicans,
violate the promise of their platform
to the American people.
The commission appointed by Secretary
Manning to examine the accounts
of various States in connection with

that originally r ported by the department.
The amount assessed upon the
State wa? $363,570.07, and i. the first
statement submitted it was found that

$14,000. The recent report gives the
State a credit of only $222,396.30,
leaving a balance to be liquidated by

Senator Hampton* has addressed a ]
letter, which has just been made public, ?
tr\ the ct>f?rt?tovv the* TTreo TYsi.'li? As.'*
sociation, in which he promises hearty .
co-operation in the grand work of t
relieving our people of the trouble- t
some tariff taxation. While not an *
absolute free-trader just at present, he J
realizes the great importance of making ;
some reduction, and making the tariff i
one for revenue only. In concluding ?
he expresses the hope that no disturb- j
ing questions will be brought into the t
approaching campaign to overshadow i
the supreme issue of maintaining the 1
good government which has been j
established by heroic efforts on the t
part of our people. The prime cause ?
of our troubles he believes to be Fed- 1
eral, not State taxation. ^
The Turkish minister at Washing- i
ton, while in conversation with a re- ^
porter in regard to the religion of his ?
country on matrimony, said that the ?
Mohammedan religion permits only c
four wives. If the first wife object? c
the husband cannot bring a second j
wife under the same roof; indeed, he v
cannot marry another unless he is t
amply able to keep a separate estab- t
lishment. The law gives the wife the P
right to have her husband drasrged
before the courts if he violates that o
rule. Plural wives are not universal I o
among the Turks, and in Constantino-1
pie one wife is the general rule. In j Sl
Asiatic Turkey the custom of plural 1 o
wives among the peasantry is very j t<
common. The first wife, who works | !*
in the field with her husband, urges : g
* - i - -i - y i i
Jtiiin to marry a secona, a tmrii, anu j
frequently a fourth wife, in order to j a:
have more assistance in tilling the 1 ^
farm- These women, toa, are great y;
?????caaa?BE ??a ??
company to each olhcr, and iielp to
lighten the common daily burden-.
It appears from this that the husband
is the party of the house at ease while
his wives do the drudgery of farm
work and support the household.
Our esteemed contemporary the
yeics and Courier, in commenting
upon the indiscriminate shooting in
South Carolina, strikes the keynote of
reform when it savs:
Whatever be their cause, however.
indis;riminatc shooting and killing in
South Carolina, at least, must be
stopped. The law against carrying
concealed weapons was passed in
compliance with public sentiment, and
should bo enforced by public sentiment.
The man who is known by
nearly every one of his fellow-citizens,
except by those whose duty it is to
know, to carry a pistol habitually is a
disgrace to the community in which he
Jives, and should be marked and treated
accordingly. A law-breaking anil
dangerous citizen, he is unworthy of
the respect or confidence of his neighbors
and should be made to' feel his
position. Failing to reform him in
this way, he should be handled without
mercy when the crime which he courts
is at last committed, and the deadly
shot proclaims beyond question what
is his true character. Nothing will go
oo far towards reducing the number of
those who carry concealed weapons as
a few public hangings of members of
this class who have used iheir weapons
with deadly effect, and one or two
snch hnnrnno-s are sadlv needed in this
~ C5 ?C ?
Almost every mail brings the intelligence
of some difficulty win-re tho ready
pistol or other weapon is brought into
play, and in many instances the deaih
of one of the parties is 'he result. The
law must be vindicated and human life
higher esteemed than it seems to be in
our State at present. A few hangings
would work a wonderful reform in
| this direction.

Movement" in this Slate.
'Jno. S. Reynolds, ., IVin usboro,
*S?. (J.: Dear Siu?Yours asking
| more definite information as to tiie
: position taken by me in reference to
the "farmers' movement", so-called,
than that contained in the Rvjidcrs
report of our little club meeting at
White Oak, is received.
My only objection to compliance
with your request arises f rom pressure
on mv time, occasioned bv the unu
| snal difficulties, presented by this
rainy season, in the management of the
grass, whether it he in the meadow or
! in the crop. Both require active atten|
tion just now and have raised an issue
well calculated to discourage "Cuffee"
unless his organization is well kept up
and energetically led.
"While I am indebted to the reporter
(whoever he may be) of the Register
for the very flattering terms used in
connection with my name, his report
mnv lp.ac] to misaDDreneusion on a
point on which I may be ovcr-sensitive
and which on that account seems
to me to be a public evil. I allude to
the practice, which seems to be growing,
of assailing the motive-, of men
who, actuated, perhaps, by the highest
sense of duty, and certain';* in the
exercise of their plain right, and the
performance, more fully than others,
of their simpie duty as free and sovereign
citizens, form opinions as to the
themselves conspicuous by urging and
advocating them. Vague charges, and
the casting of suspicion on the motives
of public-spirited men, have been, are
and perhaps ever will be, used as effective
weapons in political warfare; but
I have never had any respect for that
sort of thins- as an argument. vro or
con., on the merits of a question. In
fact, I tave never been able to resist a
feeling of contempt for it, which reaches
in a measure to the individual who
would resort to if.
I desire to be distinctly understood
as according to the advocates o: the
farmers' movement the honesty of purpose
and good faith that I claim for
myself, and indeed have ever claimed
for the sturdy tanners of the land in
public matters. The expression "to
the manor b -rii", "viiii uli the devoted
fidelity to country that it carries with
it, has ever been associated in my
mind especially with the owners and
tillers ot the soil. Their interests are
as fixed as the soil itself. They cannot
be stored in sales, or boxed and scut
oil'to foreign vaults in the liineol
trouble. They mu>t abide the fate ot
meir country, wuuuser u u-j hcvmtated
by an invading foe, or rem and
torn by internal dissensions and class
conflicts, or calmly rests under the
peaceful reign of law based on mutual
concessions. It' they arc not true in
their hearts to the best interests of the
State, where are we to look for fidelity ?
With no doubt as to their motives, I
hoped and expected that the (Jonven

agitation, and by its consideration and
discussion of rhe agricultural situation
reach some intelligent conclusion as to
[he cause of the depression, or, at
!ea->l, throw some light on the subject
md to that extent allay the unrest and
discontent which seem to prevail, it
was with feelings of disappointment
md regret that I found myself unable
;o concur in the action of the (Jonvenion
or in the assumptions on which it
>eems to have been predicated. I say
teems, because in the published pro:eedings
the grounds on which the
lotion was based are not clearly and
lelinitelv stated. There seemed to be
i vague, indefinite idea that the body
politic was afflicted with leprosy and
lotiey-combed with rottenness, and
hat amid this rubbish of leprosy and
oM'T.ness, concealed somewhere, is a
nasi- ed enemy to the agricultural inerests
of the State. I cannot concur
u these assumptions. I cannot con;ur
in the idea that is floated on the
lir, not fixed and located, that injusice
has been done to, or justice been
vithheld from, the farmers of the State
>y any other class in the State, or that
he agricultural depression prevailing
s in any way, shape or form attributa- ,
>le to the conduct of our State gov- ,
rnment. The administration of our ,
rovernment since '76 has never been '
xcelled in purity, or in fidelity to :
onstitutional obligations, and it will ,
ontinue to be an honor and blessing
o the people of the State as iong as it ,
s controlled by a political organization .
vhich combines in harmonious union ,
he conservatism, the intelligence and ,
he character of all classes of our peo- *
ile, whether the offices are filled by
ttrraers or not.
If there is an individual, or a class,
rganized or disorganized, in the limits
f the State, in hostile attitude to the
gricultural interests of the State, I s
rill venture to sav that he or they are I
o closely masked as to defy the skill

ssutnptions?do the measures pro- 1
used reach and cure the evils? Do v
ley tend to generate or call into ser- 1
ice 3 healthy^ sound, elevated, liberal: 11
jitjd enlightened public sentiment
This is the oniy reliance?the sing]
attd sole airency by which rotiennes
i:; a government like ours can b
reached and eradicated. To meet th
assumed condition (which, by th
way, has strayed entirely away fror
the incipient object of the Convention
namelv, agricultural depression and i:
cause) the farmers are called upon t
organize as a class, to enforce c!:ts

labor in adjusting complications am
surmounting difficulties, to build o

Ir. seems that one of the purposes o
the movement is to take by Iegislatioi
for the benefit of the fanners their jus
share of the public treasure. Whci
the power is obtained by such mean
to do that, who is to determine wha

further. We make this class fiijrht am

our agricultural interests, gain t(

scars with which a crippled and de
based political sentiment emerges frou
We will have lowered our standan
of education, especially lh:it of th<
farmer, by substituting, regardless 0
expense, a set of special class school
for our State University system. 1J;
special class education we will secun
the perpetuation of the class dissen
sions and strife which we have inau
unrated. The Stale will not be allowet
to concentrate her educational strengil
and, in Iter impoverished condition
exorcise the highest and wisest economy

moral and intellectual culture of he:
sons and, breaking" down class lines
train up ali into onn hearty, healthy
strong family mutually dependent
mutually supporting and always strug
gling together for the welfare, bono
and glory of their common mother
How Ibis is to benefit the farmer as ai
individual, or the farmers as a class
or the agricultural interests of tlx
State, it will be difficult to show.
There is one assumption that 1 neg
lected to mention, which is correct
and that is, that the farmers constituti
the majority of the dominant politica
party of the State. This is a rirst-clas:
ground for not organizing as farmer:
for political purposes, as in that domi

nuiii puny uiiiy can uic\ wiuiu ujuji
political strength wisely for the welfare
ot the State and for the benefit o:
themselves. But the programme is an
appeal to them, not to assert that
strength as citizens and Democrats,
but to organize it and wield it as clas
power for cla>s purposes. This powei
is to be wielded within the lines of tin
Democratic partv. That is the avowee
a, movement contribute to the hurmonj
and efficiency ot that party: Is there
any conservatism, any spirit of concession
in it? Is there not the shadow
of the spirit that would rule or ruin:
A<rn111 ? it is ii farniors' oro-:!mv.sitior
to carry out a platform political in its
character and other than that of the
Democratic party. How is the membership
of such an organization limited
to Democrats? Is it not unfurling a
flag that might attract even a judicious
enemy of Democracy and under which
lie could judiciously tight? There is
no provision against it. Can we all'ord
ihis sort of thing in our condition?
Fearfully handicapped by the weight
of a newly-Hedged and debased citizenship,
is it not suicidal to fritter
away our strength for such a purpose,
when it i.-i all needed to uphold the
! thin veil of the law between us and
1IVV 4tn?t VlV"/tUlVy?iVU V v? UlliV-iJlj
and with it, ii* it ever eome> again, tlie

writers and sentimental philanthropists
theorize at :i distance on the
race question, it is oar fate to be in the
forefront in the practical solution of
the problem. The yits:l question with
as is?can we, under the load thrust
upon us, maintain a healthy, liberal,
enlightened public and political sentiment,
or are we to succumb and be
dragged down to its level? By taking
care of ourselves in this matter, we
render the highest service and do our
full duty to the State, and, indeed, by
thus holding up to his view a high and
worthy standard we render the only
aid In our power to the "man and
brother" in \vorking out his own destiny;
for that lie must, under the laws
of nature, do for himself. But the
point is made for application to our-,
selves and our duty in working out
our own destiny. Is it not the part of
wisdom, is it not the dictate oi seif
preservation, 10 concentrate our iorcc
?our intellectual and moral fuvce, our
educational and political force, our
Anglo-:>axou race force?and apply it
to the accomplishment of this purpose?
How can we do it? The only agency
in our reach for effecting this combination
is the Democratic party?the
organization not of any class, "but of
all classes?the organization of the |
people. It was framed for the pur- j
pose and used effectively to lift the j
political sentiment of the State from a |
condition ol ruinous and disgusting i
tiegradation to a healthy standard, and
thereby restore to its allegiance to the
Constitution the government of the
State. It is the only means at our
command lor maintaining the fidelity
of government to the expressed j
will of the people. It is the j
>nly instrumentality thiough which)
ive can concentrate our strength for
:he supreme duty of the situation. So
or.g as it will require of the ci'icials of
r ?vernmcnt fidelity to constitutional
>bligations in the conduct of their
jlhces, and maintain the rule of the

o Dawkixs, May 14, 18SG.?The long
f looked-for rain for oats has come at
la>t, and in an abundant quantity, too.
y On Tuesday the rain began fallingi
gently about seven o'clock in the rnornt
ing; by evening the ground was too
' wet for ploughing. Many farmers'
. countenances onghteneu at toe pross
pccis of having a good siancl of cottui).
and the oals crop receiving' such a
I high season made all in good spirits.
;t There was no.v a chance to increase
II the feed of Deck, Judy and John. But
5 alas! Tuesday night there must have
\ been a tremendous rain up the river,
q for 011 rising "Wednesday morning we
q beheld a broad sheet of water in our
i front?west. Looking south and north,
the same wide extended sheet of rip,,
l'ling water was visible. In fact, I
, found myself living ujjoii a peninsu?
la that morning?the night before. I
lived on high ground iialf-a-mile from
, the river. The rain continued to fall
I I nearly all day, gently; at night it.
'' ; c:une down in torrents, and on the
this point was well worthy of the I
"! name geographically given it, for iL j
11 i was one mile wide, extending u[> Pole |

the depot, covering corn and cotton !
| with water from three to fifteen feet. |
j In front of Mr. II. M. Zealy's resi-1
! dencc, just opposite the station, the j
corn of his on bottoms was under j
0 | water fully fifteen feet?tin-, too, half- j
"j a-mile from the banks of Broad river.!
I The water rose so rapidly that fear j
! was entertained by the clerks of Mr. I
1 J. S. Swygert for the safctv of his
' store here. At 12 o'clock Thursday j
^ night the water was within four feet of
' i the southwest co ner of the store. It
1 had already climbed near the eaves of
! ;he shed of the mess-house, just a few
' feet distant from the store. Had the
' water continued to rise for two hours
" longer at the same rapidity, it cer1
tainlv would have been alarming to
' the safety of the surroundings at
I The damage done to crops, pastures
" and stock cannot be estimated. I
know of not one pasture fence on ihc j

j be teen anywhere now, led by little'
i buys and men.
r; All the trestles 011 the Spartanburg,
j Union & Columbia Railroad between
j this place and Alston are gone. Wind'
j bank, Peach-tree, and the one over
| Owcns's Creek were carried away.
: The 1,000-ft. trestle below Alston was '
^ j seriously damaged, and the road-bed

say that it will be two months
before the locomotive will toot at Dawkins,
and that it will take $100,000 to
place the lines in the condition they
we;*e before the freshef.
! I>oth ends of the trestle at Shelton i
were undermined and carricd off. Our
friend Joseph G. Martin, living near |
Strother, lost a fine mule in the river, i
That genial gentleman, Capt. W. J.
Clowney, lost an entire flock of sheep,
consisting of thirty-five or forty. They
| were on the island jusi a short distance
! Irom Stroiher. 'Tis said that great
; effort was made by himself and bands
to save them, only abandoning the
attempt after bateau sunk, leaving
three of his hands on a snag or raft
lodged in the river, from which they
were rescued by a small thread. I am [
told that the process was unravelling I
I a rope and tieing together, then a i
i small thread or fish"m<r line was tied to
i tsic rope, and a ruck (small one of i
I course) was attached to the end of the !
. thread. This was thrown to the men
I in the river, which was caught by
I them after many unsuccessful attempts.
! Thev drew the thread until the un*
ravelled rope reacned them, and so
j continued until the stout rope cx.
tended from the bank to them; then
j the parties 011 shore pulled them across
! and thus rescued the trio. A little ;

j widow. If any exaggeration, why J
i forgive her; she did not so intend ir. 1
The mill of Capt. T. M. Lyles, at! t
j LyJes's Ford, was said to be moved! ;
j from its loundation and lodged in a j ;

I The river at Dawkins was two and i
' a half feet higher than the high water ,
| mark of 1SG.3, as shown mo Col. J. T.
: Dawkins just before leaving for Texas. |
It is certainly the highest in twenty j
J years to my own knowledge. No i
| trains have readied here since Wed lies-1
: day. Dawkins looks like Sunday
| now, not many people coming to it I
I since the stoppage of trains. In fact, J
it is no use, for the inability of the j
road to transfer freight to this point is I
a truth which will be felt seriously,
lor I venture tint mere are noi nve j
farmers whom the merchants here are j
furnishing, or agreed to do so, who h,
lias corn for their stock ten days.
Very many are now out of corn and
Baltimore bacon. It has caught the %v
lien store here in a bad fix. There is
no corn for beasts nor meal for man. Sj
I cannot conceive how the lienors at rf
this place will do if the communica- tl
tion remain cut for two months, as it i
has been said by sums knowing ones. ie
In addition to those who arc being ~
furnished by Mr. Swygcrt, add all the p(
farmers along the line who deal in
Charleston, and you have a legion that in
are dependent upon the speedy run- i ri:
ning of the trains. On paper It seems I n.(
light, but I assure you it is a serious si
matter to know that hundreds are out
of bread to-day, and unless relief
comes pretty soon immense suffering on
will be the result, rnose wijo nappen i
tu have a little on hand will have to |
reduce rations one-half or they will ! _
be out before the road is repaired, ;
The authorities of the road seem to be j
alive to the emergency, though. They T

Alston. It is to be hoped that they
will push things up and close the gap
