The Silk Dress Lottery at KAHN'S in Augusta.

very long ago, and traded to the amount of $35.
This gave her 7 chances. She drow the silk.

President Johnson's Visit South.
Prior to his leaving the Capital on his Northern
tour, it has been ascertained that the Prosidont
expressed a strong dcBiro to visit the loading
Southern cities, and if it is at all practicable the
trip will be made carly in tho ensuing year.
Meanwhile it is not unlikely that ho maj mako a
tour of Virginia aud North Carolina scon after ,

Washington correspondent of tho Phibtdelphia
Gov. Orr's Message.
"Wo lay beforo our readers/this* week, tho lato
message of His Excellency, dov. Onn, to th*
Legislature of South /Carolina, now assembled in
extra session. The able document ia question is
ncithor long nor labored ; therefore every ono will
read it. And thia being tho case, we neod enter
into no analysis or synopsis of it. . In our opinion
it cannot fail to meet tho almost entire approval
of the people of South Carolina. Many men will
perhaps object to certain recommendations in that
part concerning tho negro code. Theabolishment
of the Graud Jury in the District Court, and tho
doing away with bond and security in tho case of
ono man indicting another, as is there advised,
would, it seems to us, bo very dangerous innova
tion?. We earnestly hope these alterations will
not bc made. As to the advice concerning negro
testimony, we think it admirable. , The time has
come when wo must lay aside divers long cherished
notions and prejudices, and come up to " thc
spirit of tho age." ~ This in, tho South, is an idea
and a phras?, which is abundantly ridiculed Just
now ; but nevertheless, it has plenty of sense and
reason in it.
Gov. ORR takes a clear and conciso viow of tho
situation and wants of tho State, and makes
many important suggestions on four groat points,
which, if acted upon wisely and wei), cannot fail
to bring relief to all classes of people, and bene
fit to all classes of society.
Gov. Cnn recommends a Penitentiary in South
Carolina, and so,' we believe, do most of thc pa
pers in the State. And so do wo most heartily.
Simply that rascals and malefactors may bj
made to work, and thus, nolens tolens, do SOLQO
good in tho world. They should by all means bo
made to support themselves whilo in jail.
Above, wo have alluded to " tho spirit of thc
;e ;" but still we do not, share one whit in the
m i wk i sh and ridiculous sentimentalism which sees
such special degradation in corporal punisbmot ts.
Wo da not see that a thief is moro degraded by
whip or pillory than by tho verdict which pro
nounces him a thief, and puts him as such in tho
penitentiary at hard labor. Tho degradation is
in thc cn'wc ; and the man mean enough to steal
cannot be dograded by the lash. We advocate the
Penitentiary, therefore, because of tho valuablo la
bor that will be done within its walls, and not on
account of the modern refinements which will pre
The President llenches the End ol'
Tho President, and his suite, of whose tour
Westward wo spoke last week, reached Chicago
on tho 5th instant. He went thither to bc
present at tho laying of the corner stone of the
monument to tho late STEPHEN A. DOUGLAS. This
was due on the day after bis arrival. He made a
speech on tho occasion. His reception in Chica
go was respectful. Not so in Cleveland, Ohio,
and one or two other places in Ohio and Indiana.
The demonstrations at these places provo that
hatred to the South flourishes among them like a
green bay tree. At Cleveland, the President's
speech was so interrupted hy disgraceful Radical
outcries, that it (tho speech) appears to us but a
string of undignified and exasperated ejaculations.
A row was anticipated at Chicago, but nothing
of th? sort took place.
Tho President has been Invited by tho people
of Now Orleans to extend his juurnoy and visit
that city. Tho Augusta papers suggest that thc
municipal authorities of that city invite him
Washington correspondents of Northern papers
say that it is his desiro and intention to make a
tour of tho prominent Southern cities carly in thc
The corner-stone of the Douglas monument was
laid in Chicago on tho Cth. Tens of thousands
of persons were present. Gen. Dix's address is
said to be a master-piece of oratory.
The President concluded his remarks on the
laying of the corner stone of the Douglas Monu
ment, as follows:
I am present to show my high regard for a man
who perished in tho public service, and one whom
I respectad and loved. I have no eulogy to pro
nounce;!' t has been dono better than I could
do if jinc men may wear tho civic wreath which
."o nation weaves for those who servo thoir coun
try in lofty positions, or their names may bo en
graved upon tho imperishable records of national
glory. This column is raised to tho memory of the
Legislator and thc Representative Man. A con
sciousness of duty performed was his whilo living,
and his reward will bo the inscription of his name
high on tho cenotaph erected by a grateful na
tion to commemorate the services of those v bo
lived aud toiled for their country and tho Ur on
of tho States.^flmmenso applause.] Fellow-cit
izens, I believe in my heart that if we could com
municate with tho dead and causo them to know
what was transpiring on earth-wore it possible
for Stephen A. Douglas to bo disturbed from bi
slumbcr-he would rise from his grave, shake oil
tho habiliments of tho tomb,.and proclaim " the
Constitution and the Uuion-they must bc prc
served." [Great applause.
A Nasty Mess.
A somewhat numerous and extremely nasty set
of Radicals met in Convention in Philadelphia
on the 3rd and adjourned on tho 7th. As they
arc, unfortunately, too numerous to call by name,
let it suffice to say that all the nastiest nigger
lovers, North and South, were there. Delegates
wore present, if wo do not err, from every South
ern State except South Carolina. And there were
.onie prcsont who wore not so nasty as others
And tho loss nasty (Bordor State Delegates) were
not in favor uf immediate universal ucgro suffrage,
and quarreled with tho vory nasty, who were; tho
former finally rctirod in disgust; the latter, left
alone, quarreled, wo believe, among themselves.
Tho nastiest Southern men present (than whom
none could by any possibility bo nastier) wore
old Brownlow, Governor of Tennessee, and Jack
Hamilton, Ex-Gov. of Texas. Fred Douglas, the
rich nigger from Rochester (or somo where up
thero) in New York, was a dologato. And Wen
dell Phillips was there. And tho ghost of old
John Brown was there. And the spirit of Dostio
hovered around. And Beast Butler was thore.
And Anna Dickinson had to do with iL And
Abby Kelly no doubt. And the whole thing was
as nasty a moss as Christians cvor beheld. And
we arc delighted to say that no good to thc nasty
cause can possibly como out of it.
The Columbia correspondent of thc Char
leston Courier taya "Governor Orr will recom
mend to tho General Assembly tho acceptanco by
tho State of the provisions of the Act of Congress
of July 2, 1882, donatingcortain public lands "to
tho several States and Territories which may es
tablish colleges for tho benefit of agricultural
and mechanic art," and tho appointment of a
commission to mature plans in conformity with
the requirements of the Act. According to the
terms of the Act, South Carolina will be entitled
to 180,000 aerea of land. The Governor thinks
that, by the sale of thc scrip for these lands, the
State may realize $150,000. As thero are no
public lands within tho limits of the State, the

Another Protrac ted Meeting.
Tea days ago, wo chronicled on interest!
protracted uioetiug in thc Eaplist Church at ll

fact that ? similar meeting is at present going

HERMON, in chargo of tho Butler'Circuit, and-1
gothcr, these oarnest laborors, faithful in t
cause of thoir Master, arc making most pr<tii
worthy efforts to arouse a spirit of religion in o
community. In thc course of tho summer ni
passing away, tho Methodists Ihroughout t
State have held protracted meotings with t
happiest results. Tho number of persons w
have joined this Church in South Carolinadurii
tho la3t five months is enormous. On tho Ne
berry circuit, only a fortnight or three wea
back, moro than a hundred accessions were ma
to tho Church under tho labors of thc Ret

And at MCKKXORY'S Chapel, twelve miles abo

Wo all know, and how well for us would it
if wc could act upon that knowledge, that mi
was created to servo God ou earth, and enjoy i
otornity of bliss boyond tho grave. This is-tb
?Ao?fd bc-tho great, and only great, object
life. In comparison with it, everything cl
should sink into insignificance. The influent
honors, wealth and pleasure enjoyed on oar
terminate with our earthly existence. How n
cessary then, how all-important, that the salv
tion of the immortal soul be made paramount
every other consideration.
The tenure of life is at best uncertain. To-da
full of life and health, tho recipient of honoi
and blessed with an abundance of this world
goods; to-morrow,-ayo, tomorrow,-the vol
of death may summon the soul to the judgmei
to the bar of the groat tribunal to answer for tl
doeds done in the'flosh. Wordly preferment w:
not then avail the criminul. The wealth pocscs
ed and the honors reaped on earth cannot thi
avert thc sentence of the unerring, tho impartit
tho righteous Judgo. The divine advocate wi
pleads for us now, will then no longer pleai
nothing but the record of a well-spent life ct
then save us from the punishment due to sin.
How great then is tho incentive to serve Gc
faithfully. The things of this world poss awa
but the blessed immortality boyond the grave
imperishable, eternal. Tho fruil bark of Hf
when wrecked upon this sea of trouble and so
row, and when all schemes of-earthly joy ox
happiness are crushed, finds a refuge in the sui
stantial and soothing consolations of the religic
left us by Jesus. Let us then hearken to tl
voice of God, and embrace, ere it shall be t(
late, the teachings of his holy servants.
If wc would but serve thc author of our bein
with thc same cheerfulness and avidity that v
do mammon, there would be not only moro ha]
piness for us in this life, but also an eternity i
bliss in thc next. The fleeting and visional
joys of this world aro as nothing compared wit
tho lifo to come. God created us that we migl
obey and serve Him. Bat if we disregard H
teachings, wc shall be punished. We, to whoi
all light has been vouchsafed, should always kee
in view the groat object of life-the Salvation i
our ctornal souls. By tho obsorvance of tl
teachings of Christ, we will enjoy that conten
mont, peace and happiness which Christ aloi
can give to His childron on earth. And whe
the work of tho faithful servant is done, and tl
great battle of life is ovor, God will roward bil
with an eternity of never-ending bliss for tt
faith and zeal of a well-spent life, and for tl
good works done in tho flesh.
