For thc Advertiser
Mn. EDITOK.-Thc article in your last J
issue by Hon. G. D. Tillman is ono of!
practical wisdom, and should infuse new
life and energy into the stagnating views
of the Democratic body, lt appears just
at the time when the party, like a ship,
which dismantled and descried on asea
.'Floats idlv, sport of thc tempestuous
With no port to shield and no star to
Although, Mr. Editor, thc plan propos
ed in the article to which I refer, is not
in itself a guarantee of success to tho
party adopting it. still it is at least feasi
ble in this: it has gained victories for
the Democracy. Wo need not, however,
expect to win without a struggle. Tho
people of South Carolina, though bold
and chivalrous in all other respects, too
easily and too tamely submit to political
defeat ; and though they never quailed in
front of battle, are in despair at the result
r>( ono campaign. Having been taught
to bo honest in all things, and under all
circumstances, thoy carry this teaching
even into politics, and consequently, nro
no matches for their wily and unscrupu
lous ?pponents. Thc motto of tho Dem
ocratic party should be, Keep up the fight
in ono form or another, until tho goal bc
Attained ! Tho property holders of our
State, can never cxpeof lecislation to be
other than onerous to thom until the
property they hold be represented, ei
ther by some of their own number, or
r>tbers whom they may control But tho
Democratic party, which may be said to
hold nearly all tho property in tho State,
is in such a hopeless minority, that it can
>nly exercise a controling influence in
the councils of our country by seducing,
us it wore, thoso disaffected ones from
the Radical ranks, who can bring votes
with them. It has olten been said by
he Poet and Orator, though seldom by
the Philosopher, that truth and right will
prevail, Indeed if this be so, heaven
would be little preferable to earth Ad
Tutting, however, that; Truth is mighty
ind will prevail in all matters and things
iubbunary, How docs it do so? By
rradually drawing to its causo thoso of
in opposite tendency,-i.e. by educating
hem in it* principles. But when could
he Democratic party of South Carolina
?nvert Radicals enough from their ways
>f abomination to overbalance the scale??
Nothing short of tho terrors of hell itself
n immediate prospect, could turn some
if that party from their worship of mom
non. This is true.of the scalawags and
arpct-baggors. As regards tho negro
element, it would be necessary t i combat
natural ignorance in addition to moral
depravity. Tho negroes, although a few
ut' them pretend dissatisfaction with their
party, are a unit in the main ; and expe
rience has taught that it is utterlyimpos
sible for any one, hailing from the other
side, to alter their opinions. Triumph
over radicalism, which, in this State, is
merely a synonym for the most unblush
ing effrontery and abandoned rascality,
can only be achieved by tho instrumen
tality of those who can influence thc negro
vote ; and this instrumentality must come
from the ranks of those in affiliation with
the negro. Lot them bo Radical by pro
fession, we may make them Democratic
There1 is one circumstance very favora
ble U> tho plan of Mr. T. Tho radicals
wft quarreling among themselves, over
their booty, like a Hock of crows over
tho dead carcass, and having gorged
themselves to satiety, sit and eye each
other with distrust and jealousy. There
ave some, however, who were not in at
the feast, discontented and angry,-they
are willing to embrace any opportunity
to gratify their appetites. Let us take
them end mould thom into something
like decency. This manner of introdu
cing proselytes into our party from the
opposition, and which has been so face
tious dubbed thc "Possum Policy," has
no disgrace attached to it; there is cer
tainly no deception practiced. The ob
ject is to destroy the unity of thc radicals
by offering emolument to those who will
renounce their allegiance, and uso their
influence tu carry out the principles of
Democracy, which to say the most, are
no worse than this: Do on as little.as yon
can, and steal as little as yon caji do up
on ; in contradistinction to the precepts
and practice of thc other party : Keep
all you steal, and steal all you can.
Though the picture, Mr. Editor, of a
rampant possum, over the form of his
prostrate enemy, radical, with thc mot
to " ste .semper tyrannis," (which means
now, take your foot off my neck, if
you please,) may not comport with the
dignity and prestige of our own loved
Palmetto, yet it might be thc means of
restoring our State to something ol' her
wonted peace and happiness, when she
was neither slandered from without, or
hectored within. H.
Diseases that progress rapidly to a
crisis are not the only ones to be dread
ed. Canker or dry rot does not blast a
tree as suddenly as a stroke of lightning,
but unless arrested it destroys it as cer
tainly ; and in like manner chronic de
bility, although it does not kill with thc
swiftness of yellow lever, is as sure to
sap the springs ol' life eventually as any
acute disease, if not checked by invigo
rating medication. There is something
inexpressibly touching iii tho spectacle ol
prematuro decay. Languor, pallor, ema
ciation, ilnprcs>ion of spirits, and adi'?
taste for exertion, arc it? ordinary .-ytup

by tonie treatment. The best invigorant
a?id exhilarant that CHU he administered
in a case of this kind is liostetter's Stoin
adi Bitters Thc stimulating principle
of the preparation rouses the dormant
energies of the system, and the strength

permanent and healthful impulse to the
vital forces thus brought into play. The
failing appetite is re-awakened, tho pro
cess of digestion and assimilation are
quickened, tho quality of the blood is
improved, the secretions become more
natural, and every organ thatc attributes

the repair of tho physical*structure is ef
fected and its health and vigor restored.
In no class of diseases has the beneficent

who has used ii to remedy her complex
ional defects looks in the mirror, she is
equally astonished and gratified at the
improvements in her appearance. Every
blemish hos disappeared; her neck, arms
and bosom, now rival in whiteness the
snowy collar which encircles her throat,
her check mantles with a peach-like
bloom, and she is ready to invokea bless
ing on the inventor of tho article which
has wrought such a delightful transfor
DIED, in Spartan bu ig S. C., at tho resi
dence of W, K. Blake, Ksq., on Tuesday,
16th January, M A HY ELIZA
JONES, daughter of Capt. LKWIS and
RKDECCA JONKS, of Edgefield. S. C.
At the early age of sixteen years, this
dear child was called to her reward. The
race was sharp, but it was not long-the
battle was tierce, but (ho victory com
plete, lier sickness, through a period of
nearly ten weeks, was a beautiful illus
tration of Christian patience and resig
nation. Though subjected to tho most
intense sufferings, a murmur M'as never
beard to escape her lips; and just before
she expired, in reply to the question,
"Are you ready to go?" she replied,
"Yes, readj' and willing; pray that 1
may havestrcngth tn bear my sufferings.''
lier dying chamber furnished a scene
over which an angel might have wept
tears of rejoicing With a calmness ut
most supernatural, and un earnestness
bordering on inspiration, she addressed
father ana mother and brothers and sis
ter, with appropriate words of exhorta
tion and comfort, and urged them all to
meet herat her Father's home in Heaven;
and tho response from heat is almost
breaking with (.'riet', " By the grace ni
(.iud we will meet you there," registered
in God's great book of remembrance,
will, we doubt not, be in them nil Ihe be
ginning of a new life, even that which
"is hid with Christ in fiod."
At the ago ol'fourteen, thc subject of
this notice professed religion, and united
herself with the M. E. Church South.
Endowed bv nature with a warm and af
fect!' :iate disposition, gentle and affable
in bc; manners, she was tenderly loved
by her teachers and companions, all of
whom, on seeing this notice, will drop a
tear of svmnathy with the more nearly
bereaved, uer "devotion to her family,
and to her mother especially, was most
touching; and the struggle between sepa
ration from one so loved, and resignation
to the will of God. was severe indeed ;
but even in this, she obtained the victory,
and her last words to father and mother,
were words of comfort and of hope.
Sweet child ! Not dead, but sleeping!
Rest in peace in tho bosom of your moth
er,-earth ; and when the angel trump
shall wake you from your calm repose,
God grant that you majr meet again, la
ther, mother, brothers, sisters, friends,
in thai blessed land, where there is DO
sorrow, no night, and where " death is
swallowed UM in victory."

?L SPECIAL FERTILIZER, prepared by the Maryland Fertilizing and Manu

highest grade of Fertilizers sold in the South.
It ha? been used by several hundred planters in North and South Carolina and
Georgia for four seasons, with tho following results: s
It increases the crop from 75 to 200 per "cent. ; rt resists drouth in ali cases.
Tho crop is not effected hy rust ; it matures the crop from three to fear weeks in
advance, th as insuring against early frost, or in the event of a backward season
enables the planter to put in his crop as late as' the 1st June with a certainty of
It prodnces a better quality of cotton ; its effect on the second year's, crop with

times and in all conditions of weather hi perfect order for drilling. .

It is sold on the basis in quality of Peruvian Guano, poundfor pound. Agents

"I used three tons ' Cotton Food,' manufactured by tue Maryland Fertilizer Com -
panv. of Baltimore, applying 200 lbs. to the acre. By the sido of lt I applied 200
lbs. Pernvian Guano to the acre." - Jil
M Thc Cotton manured with the J Cotton Food' grew off more promptly and vig
orously, and whilst I made no comparison of the results, I am sure the preference
was in favor of the ' Cotton Food,' and so much am I impressed with th hi belief I
shall use it exclusively this year in preference to all others. The Cotton manured
with it was not affected like the others by the drouth, and matured three weeks
earlier. I also applied it in a small way on Corn with the most satisfactory results. "
J. H. HOLLINGSWORTH, Edgefield, S. C., to GRAHAM <k BUTLER, Augusta.
".I used 100 lbs. 'Cotton Food' to the acre, in the drill, on Mulatto Land, mixture
of ?and, it increased the yield one hundred per cent. I used several other kinds
tho year boforc and I decidedly prefer the ' Cotton Food:' It gave perfect satisfac
tion, so much so that 1 shall ase it entirely anothor year. - WT -
H. W. ADDISON, to GRAHAM & BUTLER, Augusta, Ga.
"I used 75 lbs. 4Cotton Food' in drills on light red land, which produced 1000
pounds Seed Cotton to the acre. It compares favorably with the best Fertilizers In
the market. My crop was increased about 50*per cent and gathered by 15th No
vember. I am well pleased with it"
J. L. ADDISON, Edgefield, S.C., to GRAHAM <fe BUTLER, Augusta, Ga.
" I used about 2Gtf lbs. ' Cotton Food ' per acre, one-half in the drill at time of
planting and one-half in the first furrow, sooond plowing in June, on sandy land,
clay subsoil, verv poor old field, a portion taken in last year and a portion this, it
produced twelve bales on fifteen aero*, lt has paid better than any Fertilizer!
have ever used. Have been using Commercial Manures ll years. Do not think
the land without manure under best circumstances would have produced jS bales,
Mest of my Cotton was gathered by tho 25th of October, and had no Yellow Cotton.
I have talked with several of my neighbor*, who uidce witn me in saying, there is
no hotter manure fin-tho Cotton Plant. Tho 'Cotton Food' has paid* better than
Peruvian Guano previous to the war."
