Tbe people of th** jJta'e cJj> ply sympathize
with Mrs Ellerbe in htr
sorrow. In sorrow ami distress there
ie, and shoul1 be, no bitrer political
feeling.
However some of ns may have differed
wi:h ?overnjr -EUerbe in bis
policy, stUI webeii-ve tLat it was
generally admitted that his iutentions
were good and thit he devised what
he conceived .was best for the State.
He made the mistake of trying to
please everybody, and eoneeqnently
he pleased few. It u.nst be admitted
tbat his administration began under
hard circumstancos. tie mnernea
from pri?r administrations vexing unsettled
questions, and they continually
plagued hU administration.
We have no doubt (bat the end of
Governor Ellerbe's life wa? acc jlei a'ed
by the duties ?fhij office, and in this
senst it may be truthfully said that
he gave hi* life for the service of his
State. Had be remained on hi? plantation,
where be could have plenty of
out door air and been free from mental
anxiety and worry, doubtless bis
life would have b3en prolonged Canvassing
Soath Caro'ini in mid-summer
in the kind of campaigns that we have
had in recent years is a tremendous
strain upon the nervous system and
physical powers of the strongest.
Naturally a frail physic, it was a
severe tax on Governor Ellerbe.

THE >EW GOVERNOR
Lieutenaut Governor M. B. McSweeney
formally succeeded Governor
EUerbe on Saturday nfcht.
Mr. McSweeney is what's known as
a self-made man. His parent? died
when he was an infant, and he began
as a little boy to struggle for himsell
in a printing office. He obtained a
scholarship in Washington and Lee
University, bat was forced to abandon
his college coarse for the lack of
money to pay his board. He went
back to the printer's case, and has
stuck to it through life. He is now
? -proprietor and editor of the Hampton
Unarcnao, oue oi tne Dest county
papers in the State. '
Mr. M*.Swecney is a man of good
character, good common sense and
possesses good badness qualifications.
y.'SBv^News and Herald does not
^^"cl&im thaTiUo^ the oolf - newspaper
in the United Stales to say is effect
that the Philippine Islands would cost
ds more than $20,000,000, bat it may
be mentioned that when it was announced
that the peace commission
had agreed that America should pay
this sum, we then siid that the islands
would be a never ending source of
trouble and would cost the United
States many times the $20,000,000 and
the aacrifice of many lives. It was
not a hard thins to predict. The in
habitants are totally different from as,
in every respect, and it wjs not to be
expected that they would understand
us. Besides'there was a strong suspicion
that in some quarters these
islands were wanted purely for speculation
purposes, and that they were to
r be,taken to satisfy tbe greed of this
element. We also said that rebellions
would break out at frequent intervals,
and they would not be easily put
down. The cost to the United States
is already many times twenty million
dollars, and the end is not in sight.
Geo. Otjs has advised Secretary Algei
30,000 men are needed. The rest that
Gen. Otis says iu this dispatch is not

A GREAT REtJSIOS. J i
i v- H,);tnr* T notice in vour publica- j i
tion of my last 'etter, in ttie descrip- 1
km of the big gun on Fort Sumter, '{
your types say twelve inches iu diame- ;
ter at the muzzle, whereas I wrote
twenty inches; the bore is twelve inches. !
Of courso this is an excusable tvpo- \
graphical error. _ - I
f^Jiow^'fo resume: After returning i<
from our trip to Fort Sumter on j ]
Thursday r .ernoon, we found a small
steam tug called "Sea Gall," which
agreed to carry us the battleship i
Raleigh. So we paid the fare and 1
vrent ahnnrd. When we reacbea the
vicinity of the big vessel there were j
perhaps a dozen other craft lying along !
side of her and as near as they cjuld j
get; but our captain nosed his boat in j
between two other?, and wers soeu j
clambering aoross the deck of the one ,
lying between ocrs a ad the big ship, j
and then up the steps leadiog to her ;
deck, and in less time perhaps than it
takes me to write it oar entire party
are walking on and in and over the
gallant ship with a very polite little
soldier or marine by the name of Jas.
j X. Stewart, from Washington, D. C.,
I who spared no pains in snowing auu
explaining everything to us in a most
{ pleasant raauner; so polite was he, and
! withal so handsome in his nice clean
aaifor.ii, that I rather think one of
oar young ladies kinder fell?not down
one of the hatchways?bat a victim to
Cupid'* dart. We inspected the vessel
from deck to bold, laid our bauds
upon the rift-iguu that fired the first
at the Sp uiiah fleet io the harbor of far
away Mii'ili; and not onlv- so, bnt
turned the crank by which it was set
to bear on the SpmUsh ve-sel. One of
our laiies secured as a si>uveuir a hard
tack, which one of the marines painted
tor her t.'ie color of the vessel itself.
Your correspondent having served out
bis hard tack period in ihe sixties
didn't care to invest.
? i
We were also shown a lorpeao ana
the arrangement for firing it Oar
visit was altogether satisfactory, onr
boat allowing us all the time we
wanted, aad the marines showing all
courtesy and consideration we con'd
desire, and we left with pleasant recollections
aad good will for all, and
"after a delightful lit;le sail landed
again at the wharf and returned to
our city home, and after supper went
down te the Battery Park and strolled
over its pleasant walks. This is a
most delightful place to epeud an hour
or two under the live oaks or sitting
on the rustic chaira looking out over
the bay or walking around on the battery
and watching the vessels of varir*n?
sizes coining and 2oin??some
propelled by steam and others by the
wind?while ever and anon the delightfa!
sea breeze fans your oheek,
producing a mo3t gratelul sensaiion.
Here too is the Ja3per monument,
erected in memory ot Sergeant Ja?per
of Revolutionary fame, who when
the flig staff was shot away leaped
' over the wall of Fort Moultrie and I
replaced it amid the raging of the
" battle with th8 shout, "L?t us not
( fight without our colors " The Sims
i monument is also here, and recently
there has been erected here, facing
. Meetins street, a neat granite shaft in
' memory of the Confederate dead, and
on its eastern and western faces jets
have been arranged from which flow
a constant stream of pure, sparkling
, artesian water, with a an cap attached
to each for the accommodation of
visitors. The artesian water of
. Charleston is said to come from a
depth of fifteen hundred fcet^bekxw
the surtace, apd with, ice?ifi^Ttis quite" palatable,
baring only a slight mineral
flavor, something like soda. It is said
, to be verv healthfal, and to those
, accustomed to it better than any other
water. Horeea are very fond of it
and seem cot to like any other. When
driven np to one of th* tanks, which
abound all over the citv, they will
souse their mouths iuto it ?b^vc their
nostrils and take in great, dr aughts of

however much they drink. 1 have
stood and iooked on with pleasure as
the poor thirsty animals were dliven
op to a tank to see how eagorly iht;y
qaafi it down and without danger of :
barm trom an overdraught. Amongst
the manv inventions wrought out and ,
diacoverie-s made by the hods of men, '
perhaps few snouia occupy a nigner
place in our estimation than the artesian

MYRTHE ITEMS.
The recet.t showers have been very
beneficial to everything, although we
could take a good season now. There
are a few of our farmers that are
ahont throncrh choooing cotton; some
are just commencing. The ?ottoo has
been rather slow abcut coming up,
especially on high places. Yonng
corn which was planted before the
showers of last week is np to a perfect
stand and looking well. Old corn is
also doing well considering the
drought it has had to stand.
Gardens are a failure, owing, we
suppose, to the dry weather and the
appearance of numerous kinds of
insects, some of which are playing
havoc with cabbage and in some
places completely destroying Irish
potato vines. They seem to be worse
on Irish potatoes than other plants.
The small grain crop is being harvested
jast now. Oats ^re better
thin was at one time expected. The
stalk is rather short, but it has a very
heavy grained head, which makes
even better food for stock than if ^
'twa3 larger. t
The wheat crop also is better than s
(vrnefited. esneelallv where the r
'* ? ? sr / ?i' %
stand was tbin. This fact can very c
easily be accounted for, though as the s
lack of rain at the appropriate time ^
caused fhe numerous branches that t
always come from the main root to be
less than would bave been had there r
been a superfluity of water at the dif- \
ferent stages of its growth; thereby
giving the remaining branches the !
advantage of the scanty moisture and j
rainfall of April and May. The head
in such cases is heavy enough, being ?
extra large for .the stalk. j
The fruit crop nas almost completely
destroyed by the cold weather c
in the early spriDg, only leaving a j
few apples, and almost all of those .
have fallen off.
Quite an enjoyable occasion was had i
at the hospitable residence of Mr. E.
A. Davis on the night of the Slst ull. i
Lemonade and cake was served quite a
bonntifally.

Afier the very wet and exceedingly
cold winter we have bad a very dry
spring. The farmer* were very backward
in pieparing their lands and f
planting their crops. There was a *
great deal of wheat and oats sown 1
during the fall and winter. The early f
sown will make a fair crop, but the r
late will be almost a complete failure.
The corn crop, though very irregular,
is lookine- verv well. Cotton on 1
Sandy land is generally a good stand
and has a healthy appearance: that on
clay land is coming up nicely and
witb another good* rain would be
ready for working in a few days.

Would I could say something for the
encouragement of our farmers and
friehds as regards to cur agricultural
outlook, but let the mind be every so
active and the sigfct far-reaching, there
is nothing very encouraging to report.
Wc were visited by a good rain
about two weeks ago, which brought
up a tolerably good stand of cotton
j f. om our first planting and enabled us
to fini-h preparing and planting lands
that bad been -awaiting rain. The
last planting of cotton is a tolerably
g'yOd stand, bnt there is not moisture
enough in the ground to bring up corn
and piodcrs. The ground needs raia
to settle it around the roots of the
youn^ plants to keep them from d> ing.

A Card et Thanks.
I wish to say that I feel under lasting
obligations for what Chamberlain's
Cough Kemedy has done for our family.
We have used it in so many cases
of r.onghs, lung troubles and whooping
cough, and it has always given the
most periecc sausiatnuu; we xcci
greatly indebted to the manufacturers
of ibis remedy and wish them to plea?e
accept our hearty I hanks.?Respectful^,

Some pait of ibis section is uow

i- foing a great deal of harm. The
wheat nnd oat crops is damaged considerably,
almost a failure, and the
cutton and corn is t 01 np very well,
e=peciaily where tie s,il has a red

it will soon rain. We eivj >yed a nice

we are dry as ever now.

the same logic applied to ileir section.
The Michigan S.ate industrial school
for girls 19 being investigated by a
legislative committee and some <>f the
witnesses tell harrowing tales of the
most dreadful crne'ty practiccd npon
the students by 1 he teachers. As teported
In the Chicago Record, one of
the pupils, Annabeiia Echtinaw, wa9
giv?n a hot bath, ihe water being
heated from a steam coil in the bottom
of the tub. One of the teachers, Miss
Oaks, who was present, described it
as follows:
The girl cried out: "'Are you g'. i-g
to scald me?"' She was held in t*^nty
minutes aud on coming out b came
unconscious and died within rwen y
minuf.es. Miss Oaks said hot baths
were a method of punishment. She
also testified to holding a girl's hands
while Mrs. Sickles gave her twentyfive
or thirty blows with rubber tur>cnlif
int.rt nippp.s. She had a!so
1U6 "i"" ? ?
seen girls' month3 covered with courtplaster
for answering back.
One of the pupils testified tbat she
had been stripped and given thirtysix
lashes with a rubber hose as a
punishment for a remark about one of
tha teaehers. She was black and
blue for a month. The report continues:
Mrs. Helen M. Babcock, a former
housekeeper at the school, testified
tbat the beatings the girls got were
sickening. Une instance sne spo^e 01
was .that of Bessio Force, who had
been* impertinent. Mrs. Sickles tore
ofl her clothes and gate her thirty
blows, after she had been in a solitary
cell. Mrs. Brbcock continued.
"'Why don't yon cry? said Mrs.
Sickles, when she finished. Bessie
was as white as a sheet and trembliDg.
Sheaaid: 4I can't cry, Mrs. Sickles.'
You'll cry or I'll kill you. Take off
your clothes,' said Mrs. Sickles. Bessie
\ nfT* her clothes. Mrs. Sickles
| went into another room and got a
j trnnk strap about an inch and a
quarter wide. She made Bessie lie
across a sofar there in the office and
gave her, very deliberately, about ten
blows on the naked limbs. I could
not bear the spectacle, so I stood at a
window and looked out. Bessie was
screaming: 40h, Mrs. Sickles, don't
kill me! don't kill mc!' "
All of this occurred in a State college
for girls in Michigan. As an
evidence of barbarity it is pretty conclusive,
but no one will be so foolish
as to believe ou that account that
Michigan is not civilized, although the
occurrences certainly do not speak
woll for that State.
It would seem that there is a fine
field for Mrs. Home and her Boston
co-laborers who have worked themselves
up to such a pitch over southern
bafbarism. One of their own sex is
accused of scalding a tender young
girl to death; which, to 9iy the least,
is as barbarous and cruel as burning a
negro tnan. Neither is to be excas?d
or condoned, bnt we should all be
creful to avoid drawing general inferences
from exceptional occurrences
