"We hear that Col. D. Wyatt Aiken's
sufferings are unabated. His many
friends in Fairfield sympathize greatly
with him and would be delighted to
hear of the alleviation of his pain and

A correspondence which has just

A leading exchange says: "Xo

valuable mineral and other resources,!
the Representatives and most of the '
newspapers of the State have asserted j
for years that its prosperity in the past j
and present is almost solely due to the j
existence of a tariff which excludes j
foreign competition and gives it a I
monopoly of the American market, j
and that its continued prosperity in
the future is directly dependent upon :
a continuance of that tariff. This j

A meeting of the delegates to the
Irish National League in the City of
Chicago on the lSih Inst., is described
as presenting the appearance of a national
political convention. At the
evening meeting of the convention
Michael Davitt introduced Mr.
O'Brien, who, in the course of his remarks,
said that the battle for Irish
freedom was not yet ended. There
was, in his view, a long and bitter i
struggle ahead, and never in the his- j
tory of the Irish race was there greater ;
in niifrmnp tha:: was ef.n- !
tred now in this convention. The !
speaker, continuing in this strain, said:
"We have to look to it now more than
ever that you should be at our backs
in the fight. If you only knew how
they are straining over there for a rift
in this tremendous convention to catch j
a word or a sign that Parnell is no
longer leader. Thank God, you have !
answered that to-day. You have sent
back the denial and shown that you are j
with Parnell, and to the death." At i
this declaration there was a wild out-.;
burst of cheering, which continued i
A I'UOMINKNT English politician sums
up the political sirua:ion in tiiat coun!
try as follows :
The universal feeling among responsible
statesman connected with the
party in power is that Ireland's proximity
to England makes an independ;
ent Iri-h Parliament, impossible so
1 long as England remains a sovereign
i nation. A native Irish Government
; would bo a standing1 menace in time of
. war- Ireland would become the basis
I of operations for England's enemies.
I Tlift riots in the 11 >rth of Ireland illns
j trate in a small w ;y what would come
i out of home rule. There is bail blood
enough now between the Irish and the ,
I Saxons: the transfer of ail administra- ;
rtive authority to the majority could j
only result in widespread carnage. \
The Irish cannot or will not pay rent: |
how can they be expected to pay for i
the land itself? They may buy the
land, but will never pay for it. No .
i Tory statesman is at present prepared i
: to believe that men who cannot pay j
! rent will be found able to pay ten and j
; twenty times as much. If an attempt j
to sell the land to the tenants is ever j
made, landlords must hold their grip I
till all is paid for. This would again
ruleoutan independent native Parliament.
Tory statesmen sre satisfied j
that the formation ot an Irr-h ministry
would be followed by n split among
the Xationa's, the loss of Parnell's
power and anarchy.
A general conference of the leaders
of the free trade movement in the
United States was held in New York
on the 12!.h inst. The principles for
which the free traders are contending
may be summed up in the address,
which are as follows:
1. They demand that the whole system
of Federal taxation be so reconstructed
and readjusted that all the j
taxes which the people pay shall be
received by the government without
the diversion of any part for the fostering
of p.iivate interests.
> Thnr. thn ni'nmntirm and irne nro- !
tection of domestic industry is to be
found in the removal of all taxes from
articles which constitute the foundation,
or arc necessary to the procscssess
of our various industries; and that
the incidence of taxation be restricted
as far as possible to articles which are
ready for final consumption, and of j
which the use is voluntary, rather than
3. They claim that the abandonment
of the present high, discriminating and
unnecessary tariff taxes, and the levy
of national revenue on a comparatively
few article?, on whicii taxes can be j
collected with the least interference j
with the freely chosen pursuits of the |
people, are the necessary steps to j
gradually ensure to the country full
industrial employment and high wages,
abundant production and low cost, extended
markets and a permanent revival
of comme.ciai activity.
In his address at the unveiling of |
the DeKalb monument, at Annapolis,!
on last Monday, Secretary Bayard j
There are those who tell us to-day j
that political parties arc essential for :
our Government, ami that parties can- j
not be worked ami incited to enthusi- i

personal ambition and the spoils ofj
place, patronage and profit; that such j
emoluments are essential stimulants to ;
public duty, and that without them ne-!
cessary party organization cannot be j
accomplished. If this be true I should I
despair of the llepnbiic, for then De- i

little value or meaning. But it is not |

A special telegram to tiie JSrews and
Courier, on the 17th inst. announced
the death of Gen. A. M. Manigault,
which occurred at South Island, 011
the evening before. The news of his
death was unexpected to the people of
the State, and ill be received everywhere
with feelings of sincere regret,
lie had not been in good health for
some time, bin none su=pocted that the
end was so near.
Gen. Manigault was born in the city
of Charleston in 1824, and was consequently
sixty-two years of age. At the i
commencement of the Mexican war lie !
entered a volunteer company of the |
Palmetto Regiment, and was with it
in all the battles in which it was engaged.
At the breaking out of the
civil war he threw in his lot with others
of his native State and entered the
contest. lie was elected colonel ol the
10th regiment. Tnroughont the entire
war he served with marked ability,
and was twice wounded. In 1880 lie
was nominated by the State Convention
for Adjutant and Inspector General,
and was elected. In 1882 lie was
re-nominated awl elected, and in 1884
the people were satisfied with his management
of the office, and re-elected
him to serve a third term. At the last
State Convention he was again nominated
over his opponents to till the
high position which he had occupied i
for six years with so much honor and j
dignity. In his death the State has i
lost an able citizen, and the military a
faithfui friend. The hero of two wars,
he will ever be remembered by the
people of the State he loved so well.

Messrs. Editors: When through
want of forethought we sutler I suppose
we should bear the consequences
patiently; but it is hard to keep silent. ;
Wc knw nothing of the views of the
candidates until they come through the j
couniry speaking. If the citizen is to
hare any liberty of choice?any chance j
to vote for the man that represents his i
views?the canvass should take place j
long enough before the election to \
allow lime for new men to be brought ;
out when it is found that not enough |
of ihose already out suit us in their
views. I, and I suppose others, never
suspected that of the candidates out
there wouldn't be a sufficient number
favoring free tuition in the South
Carolina College. Indeed, if we could
judge by the record of our Representatives,
I know that one of them
favored free tuition. No wish for a
change in the present management of
the College has been manifested in
this county. Could we then have expected
a trap to be sprung upon us
' and a delegation sent back opposed to
tuition without the issue ever being
made and the voice of the people ever
being heard? It is not certain that a
majority of the people of Fairfield are
n favor of a charge for tuition at the
College; and I am satisfied that if the
question was fully discussed before
them they would with an overwhelming
majority pronounce in favor of
free tuition. Is Fairfield to be forced
to vote against free tuition? Is she to
adjust her will to the views of her
candidates simply because not enough
of them represent her will? Some
time ago a gentleman said to me that
he would vote for no one that was not
in favor of free tuition. He can vote
for no one, then, but Mr. Buchanan;
but if lis wants this vote counted he
will have to vote lor two others who
do not represent his views.
But it is useless to lament; though 1
cannot but be greatly disturbed to
think ol such an important principle

Whether or not in lime to do any
good at this election, I cannot resist
the impulse to remind the people or
the county of some of the reasons why
they should cling to free tuition with
a devoted tenacity. 1 have uo one to
be benefitted by free tuition, and if
ever man were actuated only by concern
for the welfare of his State, I
believe I am when I feel so interested
in free tuition. I know that many
friends of the College wish tuition
charged; but, in my esteem, of all
that entitles the College to our affection
and support, free tuition stands
first. I would that Iliad space to'discuss
the subject more fully than I shall,
but 1 can only give some of my main
We all appreciate the importance of
education. We know that it is this j
that makes all the difference between ;
intelligence and ignorance, civilization |
and barbarism, morality and depravity,
prosperity and poverty, happiness
riM<l inii^rv Awl if ir siif.h :l
difl'erenco between a nation where no
one is educated and one where only a
few have the highest education, ho'y>
much more prosperous and happy
would that nation be where the ui;ij.n*_
ity are highly educated! If educUjun
is a blessing we want as rnair. m31l
ediu-atf^ as" possible. The m(',;a in.
telligence in the country the mor?
prosperous will the country be, and
that even those that do not directly
share in the advantanges of education
are greatly benefitted by them. If
then a State is simply a number of
men organized into a society to promote
by united means the welfare of
the whole, is there anything so much
in ihe province of a State's duty as
education? Certainly tn?;re is nothing
else like education which in its ctlecrs
so unites all of the ends of government.
For ignorance is the parent of
vice and poverty and is the one enemy
to the general welfare. All, however,
may admit the heed of intelligence;
but docs a common school education
for our people bring that prosperity,
or the result of intelligence, which a
college education would bring?
Now, if a high education is so important,
must it be limited to those
that have the private means to get it?
If the State does not endeavor to
facilitate the means of education, 'now
I- ~ ( ,1.TJ !,?
is miu UUliig iiui uui\ . iiu>v ait; uiu
people thai have united to promote by
concerted action their individual welfare
fulfilling1 the ends for which they
formed themselves into a State? Is it
not clearly the duty of a State, it is 1
not the noblest work, tlie grandest
privilege of a State to bring the most
liberal education within the reach of
her ccitizens? And if the State for
some time neglected her duty so that ;
education had to be bought a certain
price from private enterprizes, have
these private institutions acquired exclusive
right to the business of education?
Must the State forever afterwards
be debarred from making education
cheaper because it, will lessen
the incomes of these institutions? Are 1
men made for institutions? Is the
survival of any institution more imnortant.
than the education of the
masses? If at a cost hardlv felt' by j
any individual the State can support a j
great college and allow unparalleled ! :
opportunities to her young men for i
obtaining educations, has any institu- j
tion such a prestige that for its sake j
education must be kept at a monopoly : :
price and thus withheld from thous- |:
ands of young men whose means will |
not permit then to buy it at the de-'
nominatiol college rate? It is absurd j
to say that forty or fifty dollars' tui-1
tion makes it no harder for a boy to
get an education. Fifty dollars is a ;
large sum to a farmer; and he might;
be able to board his boy at college, j <
and vet*be unable to send him for the j
want of fifty Collars more for tuition, i
But our would-be Representatives,:
following the suggestion of the de-;
nominatiOHal colleges, tavor a charge
for tuition to those only who are able j
to pay and free tuition to those that j
need it. Laying aside all objections i
to the principle of making a distinc-1
tion between citizens on account of:
means, I submit to any intelligent !
man that it is utterly impracticable to j1
draw a line between those that are j
unable to pay and those that are not. j
That's an objection to the (Jitadcl. J
Can the scholarship be given to real |
poor boys even generally? The return
on the auditor's books can't show ;
whether a boy's parents are able to ,
send him to college. A boy's father j
or mother may be afflicted with a great
deal of land on which to pay Targe
taxes but from which to get little
monep. A mail that has no visible
property and pays little taxes may
have plenty of money but be allowed
to send his son as a beneficiary to the
Citadel, and, according to the plan of,
our candidates, te the South Carolina
College over a poor farmers boy.
Moreover, when competitive examinations
are stood the boy that needs the
scholarship most is poor and has had
few advantages; he cannot stand first
on the examination and is left out, yet
he may be sufficiently advanced to j
have entered the College. Let us not j
have the name of trying to educatc i
the poor when we know it is but in !
name. Why then do our Rep resent a- I
tives propose to abolish the present |
system by which education is put as ;
near the poor boy's grasp as possible j
and establish in its place one that will j
be perfect farce? Let the demonina- j
tions support their colleges if they j
wish. If these colleges are so much |
desired there should be no fear ot j
competition. Arc there not enough j
members of the denomination that will J
prefer to pay tuition for their sons at I
their college? If not, then it is false!
that the people composing the denomi- i
nations wish free tuiiion abolished, j
It <o, then it is tiilse that free tuition !
can injure the denominational colleges.
I feel that I must close, but one
word more about this absurd talk of
competition between colleges. Is not
the object of all colleges to elevate
hnmnnirvV And is it love for human
iiy for one that can feed but the hundreds
to be unwilling to give place to
another that can feed the hungry
thousands? Love for ray State and
the belief that free tuition in her college
is. that which will educate her
farmers' sons, elevate her people and
make her prosperous, cause me to feel
anxious for the maintenance of free
tuition With me it is a great principle,
and I would vote for no one that
did not favor it. Would only that a
thousand others felt as I do!
