I'm Still a x riend to Yon.
SET TO MOSIC BY WILL S. HAYS.
Ah ! years have eenie and gone, dear Tom,
The past seems like a dream,
Since you and I together met,
Down by the winding stream ;
I When hand in hand we promised, Tom,
j To each we would be true ;
! Old Time has made no change in me,
I'm still a friend to you.
How often have I wept, dear Tom,
When thinking o'er the joys,
The happy scenes of long, ago,
When you and I were boys ;
But now I'm told you*e very poor,
And your days in life are few,
It gives me joy to meet you, Tom
Pm still a friend to you.
Old friendship often withers, Tom,
Whene'er a man grows poor,
The rich and proud forget " old friends,"
And know them then no more.
But keep that honest heart of yours,
We'll make old friendship new;
I care not what the wcrld may say,
I'm still a friend to you.
I'm still a friend to you, dear Tom,
? Alas ! there are but few
Have ever been as true and kind
As I have been to you.
Personnel of tbe Tax-Payers Con
A correspondent of the New York J1
Herald, writing from Columbia, un
der date of the 8th instant, furnishes
that journal with the following Per
sonnel of the Tax-Payer's Conven-1 r
tion : I (
Each county in the thirty-two sends,
two or more delegates. Some of the j j
counties send as many as four ; and
Charleston County, the richest in the
State, sends eight, who are as follows :
Wm. B. Smith, President of the
Union Bank of Charleston, a white
man; George Shrewsbury, colored; p
Colonel Thomas Y. Simons, editor of a
the Charleston Courier ; Myron Fox, c
editor of the Charleston Republican, t
a Radical, who cultivates the style of t
Horace Greeley, and wears his cloth- t
ing in exactly the same fashion, bar- t
ring the stockings, which are worn t
inside of the shoes. . n
GEORGE A. TRENHOLM, \
the former Secretary of the Treasury ^
of the Confederate Government, whose
family, through speculation, it is said,
was at one time worth eighty million Jj
dollars, and who, it is also said, now A
owns one-sixth of the city of Charles
ton-a smooth-faced, white-haired oki
gentleman ; Col. Richard Lathers, a c
South Carolinian, who was a resident a
of New York for twenty-five years,
and President of the great Western r
Insurance Company ; Henry Gourdin, D
a well known and highly respected v
merchant, and W. D. Porter, a very *
eminent lawyer of Charleston. Ab- :
bcville County sends Arrnistead Burt, I!
formerly a Senator of the United .
States under the old dispensation. r
Barnwell sends General Johnson Ha- e
good, of Longstreet's old corps. I .
heard General Hagood to-day pay a *
a most graceful and kind tribute to a J
young officer whom many a Northern *
household mourned. I refer to Colo- t]
nel Bob Shaw, of the Fifty-fourth c
Massachusetts. He said Colonel Shaw ~
was a perfect gamecock, who feared ^]
nothing. Beaufort sends General E. r'
B. C. Cash, C. S. A.; Colonel A. M. ?
Lowry, Major McQueen and General -1
Evans. Clarendon County sends J. 0
L. Manning, formerly Governor of
the State ; J. P. Richardson and oth- ?
ers. Edgefield County stands first in }J
its representatives, and sends General J1
M. C. Butler, a fine looking man, a
former Major-General in the Confed- J1
erate army, who lo3t a leg at Brandy Jj
Station in.a cavalry fight ; M. L. Bon- ?
ham, an ex-Governor of South Caro- ^
lirTa, and General in the Confederate ?
States army, who commanded the 11
centre at the first Mananas ; General n
Martin W. Gary, a tall, gallant-look- r
iug soldier, a blonde, with a freckled "
face and eyes that mean shooting, ?
who, after th,e council of Lee's oin- a
cers at Appomatox, refused to surren- &
render, and cut his way through the *
Union lines with 400 men-all these 3
gentlemen own property, and are u
MEN OF HIGH CHARACTER.
I may stop to state Greenville coun-11
ty &en4s ex-Governor B. F. Perry, an
old Union wan, who is how said tb be r
the worst reconejiru.cted man in the a
State. Kershaw county fion/.)s Major- t
General J. B. Kershaw, an eagie^ye^ ?.
looking man, formerly commanding a ri
division under Longstreet, a very a
conservative and influential man, a t
type gamecock of South Carolina, as
he is called. Kershaw also sends t
General James Chesnut, formerly a "5
United States Senator ante-bellum, a a
gentleman of a quiet and philosophi- n
cal turn of mind, wh?S? name is gen- t
erally mentioned to-night dong'with t
General Martin W. Gary, General? t
Butler and W. D. Porter, for Chair- a
man of the Convention. General j
Kennedy also comes from Kershaw, c
and was wounded in every battle du- I
ring the war in which he was engaged, t
and is remarkable for his calm fair r.
mi?4.- Mari?n codnty sends W. D. a
Johnson, an ,ef-Chancellor of South t
Carolina, a man of great ju.d/cjal y
learning. From .Marlboro, C. W. q
Dudley is delegated,, an old, staunch b
Union man, who was defeated by bal- ii
lot box stuffing as a candidate for Con- t
gress lately, his successful opponent t
being a negro. Spartanburg county li
sends Lieutenant-Governor Gabriel g
Cannon, a plain, solid headed; gentle- t
man, with a fund of common sense
and a. turn for a joke. Union county
sends ?eneral Wallace, a praying I e
brigadier .of longstreet's corps, saicji
tb resemble Havelock-sword in one
hand and a copy of Watt's Hymns 1
in the other-that's his style/and ex- s
Governor Gist, a very undemonstra- 1
tive gentleman; and to conclude, r
.York county sends General E. M. f
Law, who commanded an Alabama c
b*7ga4e in the Confederate service, c
This gentleman is a young, progres- e
.?i-ye and consery^-^ delegate and 1
wilj mal?e Ins mark. '*. . f.
Jo be brief I wilj sum up the Con
vention as follows :-It is composed
altogether,of tax-payers and gentle- t
mon of high social standing, an?l its I
like has not been seen' in this State i
since 1860. It is- true that put.of
ajjpnt seventy-five delegates
NOT MORE THAN ?Iyj? WERE UNION j I
.originally, but they are honest as a \
bod)-, and have never countenar
bribery, swindling or corruption
any shape. Much good may- be
pected from these men, if the re
should be nothing but a mere exp
sion of opinion. It is true that
Republicans keep away from the C
vention as if the small pox was ]
valent in Columbia, but that is tl
fault, and they cannot expect to i
resent their party if they do not s
more than half a dozen delega
Individually the Convention is ct
posed as follows:-Ex-Governors
South Carolina, four ; ex-Lieutena
Governors, two; ex-United Sta
Senators, three ; ex-Congressmen, fi
ex-Members of the South Carol
House of Representatives before
war, forty-three ; ex-State Senat
of South Carolina before the w
?ixteen ; members of the judie
bench, five ; ex-Secretary of Treasu
Confederate States, one ; Banke
Eve; Major and Brigadier Gener

Most of the delegates are either c
jaged in professional pursuits or pla
;ing, and reflect on their respecti
communities the educated eentime

In the recent Tax-Payers' Conve

n the table, supporting his motic

I suppose that no man is more ill
.repared to discuss this point than
m this evening, but having stron
onvictions, I will do so. The quet
ion seems to me, sir, to consist i
his : Whether we, by this cumuk
ive voting, shall be confined to one
hird the power to which we are en
?tied. I, for one, am willing to bin<
lyself by no such obligation. Tb
istory of the world shows us tha

.\) think that the people who con
rolled the government of South Caro
ina from the tims when it first be
ame a colouy-to think that the}
re to be confined to this one point, i?
, thought that seems to me is abhor
ent to the mind of every en'lightenec
ian. It is a sort of declaration o;
weakness to the other element to ash
hem to yield their influence to con
roi one-third of the State. The true
nterest, sir, of the people of South
'arolina ie to enlighten the whole
eprcsentative mind in the State to
nact laws for the benefit of the
-hole people. Whenever you restrict
lie mind of the individual people,
on restrict the liberties of the land
t is by the homogeneous elements of
be whole State only that the State
an be formed. When you confine
lie action of a citizen by incorpora?
ion or restrict it by other means, you
estrict the right of will and theright
f action. The principles of human
berty are just as free, sir, as the air
f God's heaven.
A compromise ! No, sir. There is
better voice to appeal to, and that
> the voice of the world. Give us
jstice, sir, and equal laws, and you
all haye citizens who will obey the
iws, I say for one, that of all the
iw-abiding people of the United
Itates, this has been the most, it is
he mal-administration of the laws
li?t gives us all the trouble. There
i no qualification to the sentiments I
lake. I will never compromise my
ights as a whole for an integral part,
it others modify their sentiments as
hey choose. Give us equal laws,
nd we would have proper represen
tation ; then will we have ju: tice

Slurs ou Women.
At a recent dinner in New York,
i which no ladies were present, a
ian, in responding to the toast " Wo
?an," dwelt almost solely on the
.ailty of the sex, claiming that the
est of them were little better than
ne worst, the chief difference being
i their surroundings.
At the conclusion of the speech, a
en;tleman present rose and said : " I
port tho gentleman in thc applica
ion of his remarks refers to his own
lother and sisters, not ours."
The effect of this just and timely
ebuke was overwhelming; and the
?aligner of woman was covered with
hame and confusion.
This incident serves an excellent
urpose in prefacing a few words on
li|?r subj eel;
"Of a? tho evils prevalent, among

And in a majority of instances the
servant of God, from his first experi

boarding house of the seminary, is
subject through life to. a hard and
scanty regimen, little better than
prison fare. With a salary of four
or five hundred dollars, eked out by
the odds and ends of surprise par

stead of cash, after the shoddy ward
robe, fuel, medicines and other ex
penses of the family have been pro
cured, what remains to purchase
fresh meats, good tea and coffee and
the other necessaries of life ? Hence
we have known faithful ministers to
go days without tasting meat, and
frequently see them toiling in the

Decay ol (he Latin Races.
This triumph of Prussia over France
has even a broader significance than
appears to the unthinking obser
ver. It revolutionizes- the leading in
fluence of Europe. It is the triumph
of the Teuton over the Latin, ol' Pro
testantism over Romanism, of the
new civilization over the old. The
Latin races, with their intriguing
priesthood, their ignorant, poor, and
superstitious people, monkeries and
relics and shams, aro sinking to decay.
Italy, France, and Spain are all in
trouble, while Portugal is hardly
counted among the nations, so insig
nificant and powerless has she become.
All are bankrupt, and neither seems
to hold within itself the power of
recovery. France is a republic to
day, nominally; but those who know
France well, will be surprised if she
remain a i^jrabliq for a' year-. The
whole hoad of Franoo is sick, and the
whole heart is faint. The Latin blood,
wherever it flows, seems to be weak
and corrupt. There are men of ideas
and pure life and noble aspiration in
all these countries; but what are
they, what can they do, against a
church (Organization, hoary with ex
perience and perfectly united in its
object-vhap ODject "being 'the popet'u
atiou of its own power, at whatever
cost, against all the encroachments ol'

will know within a twelve months.
Nothing but universal education
instituted, controlled, and directed
by the State-and a (rep B.ihjp, with
free rneft i'? 'pre'?oh its truths, ban save
the whole Latin race from fatal de
generation and decay. Without these
regenerating influences France will
follow Spain and Italy into a power
lessness that will be alike her protec
tion from national jealousy and her
degradation from the world's respect.
Bound as these peoples are by so
many chainy it is impossible for thom
to hold a respeotable footing in the

H hat Tim Hurley Thinks of the
Situation in South Carolina.
Correspondence of the New York Herald.
COLUMBIA, S. C., May ll.
" Do take a glass of wine. It's good
dry Verzenay. . I import it myself.
Help yourself, my boy," said Tim
Hurley to the Herald correspondent,
as we sat in comfortable apartments,
belonging to the most distinguished
politicians in South Carolina. Two
elegant spittoons, which had been or
dered without regard to expense for
the South Carolina House of Repre
sentatives, lay at our feet, emblazon
ed with gilding. A beautiful chromo
copy of one of Turner's most bril
liant pieces of coloring,, giving
view of bright morning in ancient
Greece, when that Republic had gods
for law-givers and heroes to com
mand her armies, hung on the wall,
and busts and statues adorned the
room. Let me state that Tim Hurley
is a pushing,
RESTLESS IRISH YANKEE,
born in Massachusetts, of the most
indomitable energy and pluck, who
is building a large town inside of Co
lumbia, thirty-two houses being al
ready completed ; and when the town
is finished he intends to call it Hur
iey-upon-Congaree, that being the
lams of the rivar which washes Co
lumbia. Hurley is as well known in
South Carolina now as the old broken
fort at the entrance to Charleston
larbor, and is a good subject to be
nterviewed, as he is quite au fait in

Mr. Hurley. Ol' course I am. Now
look a1, that case of the piccqa of ail

LET ME Tuitii OVER.-I was apas
! Benger on a steamer from Panama to
San Francisco, when the rush .of
travel on that line was immense.
We were badly crowded, and there
was no room for chairs or tables, yet
we were bound to have our game of
" old sledge." A Baptist minister,
smitten with thc lust for gold, had
deserted his Hock, and occupied a
sleeping place on the cabin, floor.
Being a large, confient man, and,
finding him a sound sleeper, four of
us squatted around'him, and com
menced to play?n hi: broad stomach,
scoring'the points of iii.: game on his
black vest. We played for several
hours, undisturbed, except by an oc
casional snore of uncommon force.
I had won considerably, and one of
my opponents, Jim Doyle by name,
becoming excited at my turning up
Jack," brought down his fist on the
lower part of the parson's stomach
with great power. The pious old
gentleman was awakened thereby,
and looked up with some surprise-;
but seeing the state of the case, quiet
ly exclaimed : " Go on with your
game, boys ; but if you are going to
ppund me in that manner, you had
better let mo turn over!"
