The Situation of Judge Orr.
We print* to-day a highly important let
ter from Anderson, in which the special
correspondent of the News sets forth the
present opinions of Judge James L. Orr
upon the condition and political future of
the State. With sinewy force Judge Orr
describes the robberies which the Ring
have committed, and exposes the hollow- I
ness of the pretensions of those leaders ot' I
his party wno are now fightjng for the
mastery during the "one year's god steal
ing" which remains. A more severe ar
I iigmuent of South Carolina Radicalism
has never been framed ' ihan that which
now falls from the lips of thc ablest man
in its ranks. The statements which J udge
Orr makes upon this point the people know
t > be true, but their determination to holu
taloof from Republicanism will not, prevent
..!iem from seconding any set of. men .who
may nominate candidates for whom decent
cuzens can consisten! ly vote. Whe n Re
publicanism in South Carolina is made re
M ec i !e, when it is stripped of the para
sib . .' . ich corrupt its tissues and make ii
hideon to see, it will be time enough to
?nv:;, he whi.e citizens of South Carolina
ii enh the Raclical fold. And, bad as,
il.i are, we firmly believe that two
vi -r more of Scott's rule would be le.-s
n : ?b] t>> the tax-payers than to the Re
p Hean party. The re-election ot Scott
he (lection pf any like man, might
thc State fons million dollars, but it
? dd cost the Republican party its very
existence. Yet we feel that weare noi
??n? too tai in saying that, as the whites
adhere to their determination not to make
p irty nominations this fail, a Republican
c inaidate like Judge Melton or Mr. C.
Davis Malton or Jucke Graham would re
ceive the votes of at least fifty-eight thou
sand of the sixty thousand white voters
in the State.
lt will be noticed thai Judge Orr ex
plains away the most objectionable point.?
in the defcuce of nepotism and gift-takinj
which ho delivered in Columbia upon hts

Out ot the Heated Cyci.1.
The extraordinary heated tenn, whose
oppressive fieryness was quenched in the
torrents of last night's thunder storm, has
left a sad record behind it. Although a
kin i Providence preserved us from the
outbreak of any alarming epidemic the
Destroyer counted an unprecedented num
ber of victims stricken down directly by
the merciless heat. The mortality from
coun de soleil has exceeded anything in
recollection of this generation, as the hot
s;?ell itself lasted over a greater number
of days than anv oth??r within the past
twenty years. Over two hundred deaths
occurred within the past fortnight from
sunstroke, while the cases of persons ac
fually attacked lie between eight hundred
and a thousand. The lower animals, par
ticularly horses, died by hundreds from
the blistering heat, lt seemed in vain to
attempt escape from the excess of ambi
ent caloric, and the exodus to the seaside,
the vallevs and the mountains was incrpas
?" bv the baking influence of tbe sun'0
rays noon brick walls. A light, hotbrf-'-zf.
" -ming in disappointing puffs from south
erly and westerly directions, did not help
matters much. Yesterdav, however, a

The Call for thc Stale Convention.
The call for th?-- Republican State Con
vention appears in another portion ot to
day's Timon. It will be seen by reference
to said call, that the convention is charged
with important and responsible .duties. Il
not only has to Select an entire set of new
State officers, but also s*?ven electors i ?.
President and vice-President nf the Uni
red States, a Congressman al large, an !
the entire political machinery for the party
for the coming campaign. The duty im
posed upon the Republican party at the
present is one of the most arduous and re
sponsible since its first inception in this
?Hate. Upon the executive and variou
county committees depends in a great de
gree our success or failure in the coming
campaign, and it behooves the party to see
to it that none but efficient, active, trusty
men are put upon these various commit
tees. The candidates to oe nominated for
?h? various positions are numerous and
persistent, and it will require the very best
liscTpn?ation of the convention to select,
good men for the positions. For this rea
ion .the very best men in every county
should bc selected as delegates to thc State
It will be seen upon reference to the
''call" that neither the congressional, nor
che county conventions, can be called un
til after tue Statt? Convention; as the ofli
'...rs whose duty it will be to call these
conventions are to be selected by theStat*
Convention next August. This is as it
-liouid be. and we hope the Various coun
ties will now go to work and discuss this
matter freely, resolving that for each con
vention, State, congressional, and county,
there shall bc a different set of delegates.
Let it be understood by all that the pres
ent county chairmen, and the chairmen ol
the respective congressional districts have
no power to call conventions in their re
-?.??ctive dt&lrioto, foi ?nv orh&i I>\??TW?
man to select delegates t^the Statu Con
vention which meets August 21st. They
c innot coll a convention to nominate coun
y officers, members of the Legislature, or
members of Congress. . That duty is im
posed upon the chairmen of the various
counties an<l congressional districts to be
elected by the convention in August.

DR. BRATTON RELEASED ON $12,000
BOND-No DEMAND FROM THE DOMIN
ION.-A dispatch to the New York Her
ald, t'roin Yorftville, dated Juiy 2d, says :
Dr. Bratten, who is alleged to have
been abducted from the Canadian Domin
ai, is now here unuer bonds. The charges
c,unst him are complicity in thc hang
ing ol one Jim Williams, a negro militia
Lapiain, on thenight of the 6th of March,
1871, just after thc attack upon the town
of Chester by the negro militia. When
martial law was declared here Bratton
tied to Canada, where he remained until
the 6th of June last, when he was kidnap
ped in London, Ontario, by two Canadians
and brought to Detroit, Michigan, on that
night. There he was formally arrested by
J. G. Hester, a United States Deputy
Marshal belonging to, this District, who
brought him to Yorkville, arriving on thc
10th bf last month.. ,
He remained in jail until the night of
the 13th", when he gave bail in the sum of
? welve thousand dollars for his appear
ance before the UnitedStates Circuit Court
at Columbia on the first Monday in Au-,
gust nex . There has been no informa
tion received here whether or not he has
been demanded by the Canadian authori
ties. Indeed, it is generally believed that
[ such has not been the case. That he was
forcibly abducted at the instance of Hes
ter is ? well known fact, but whether it is
j a breach of international law remains to
be proved. Hester is here, and he treats
the rumor ot the demand for the return
of Brattnn and himself with derision.

The Organization of the Baltimore
As we are upon the point of going to

telegraphic reports of the assembling
and organization of the Baltimore Con

attended. Senator Doolittle of Wiscon

and careful. He stated the situation
ablv and eloquentlv-evidently leaning
f to the indorsement of Greeley. The Con
vention adjourned after tho speech of the
Chairn.an, until the mornine of the l*?th.

Wost, lights now advancing, now rece

the heavens, at. anther slowly creeping
''?ward the zenith, bewildering the be
holder's eyes. And strangest of all, the
indorsement of the Cincinnati candidate
at Baltimore, has, by imperceptible de
grees, passed from a slim probability in
to a well-defined certainty. Meanwhile
we at trite South are quietly looking on,
exercising " a wise and masterly inac
tivity," hoping and believing that the
success of Mr. Greeley will be the over
throw of the odious military despotism
under which we have so long suffered,
and the restoration of constitutional lib
nrty.toan oppressed people. To sucha
consummation we can cheerfully resign
many fond hopes and long cherished
prciMdices as things of minor importance.

Thc drums beat, and the cannons roared,
and the anvils clanged, and thc big organ
boomed and thundered, and tho horns
tooted ; and tho grandest band ol* Greal
Britain, thc British Grenadiers, and thc
grandest band of Germany, Kaiser "Wil
helm's Imperial, and the grandest band ol
Austria, HerrStrauss's, and the grandest
band of France, the Guarde R?publi
caine, all blow their loudest blasts and
achieved their greatest feats. And Herr
Bendel, the German pianist, smote thc
piano until it crumbled to earth. And
Madame Peschka-Leutner, thc highest
running-up singer, who had never be
fore gone higher than G. sharp in alt,
(which of itself is miraculous) under the
inspiring influence of thc white hatted
philosopher, ran up to C., and-wc were
going to say, died; but she didn't. On
the contrary slio is alive and well.
And thc Sage ol' Chappaqua wore a
black Alpaca sack, and bore in bis hand
a huge bouquet, which he waved at the
male musicians, and finally tossed to
Peschka-Leutner when she achieved her
C. in alt. And the 50,000 head of sover
eign people rose ever and anon from
their seats, waving hats and handker
chiefs, and cheered for the old man who
is to be our next President.
And after tho Jubilee, tho City dined
him and wined him magnificently. And
then ho departed for Newport, where he
had a heavy and mysterious conference
with Chief Justice Chase. And then
back to chopping wood and cutting down
trees at Chappaqua.
Verily, all these d?monstrations point
to old Horace as the coming man ! '
Judge Orr, being interrogated by the
"interviewer" of tho Charleston 'News,
as to who would bo run for Governor on
the reformed Republican ticket, said :
Oh, I don't kuow. Th ero aro half a
dozen good men who might be named,
with either of yhoin I should be satisfied.
I do not want it-would not have it-nor
any other ofiicial position on thc face ol'
the earth to which I could bo elected or
appointed. I have held ollice siufce I
was a hoy, and I am tired*of it. I would
resign my judgeship to-morrow, if I
had anv other way to support my family.
And that is something that will give me
strength in the convention. I can say to
them: "there is no office under the sun
that you can give me, or that I will take.
I have no desire for office, no selfish in
terest to*subsorve, no choice of candidates
between honest men, and all that I want
is to see a reform in our State Govern
ment." Thero is Judge S. W. Melton,
who wotdd make a good Governor,
or C. D. Melton, of Columbia, or 1
would have no objection to Judge Gra

Correspondent. Who aro the other can
didates for nomination?
Judge Orr. There are a good many of
them. Frank Moses, Dr. Neagle, Gov
ernor Scott and John Patterson appear
to be the nost prominent. I don't KUOW
that Patterson's chancos amount to much,
and, as to the triangular contest between
Scott, Moses and Neagle, I am told that
Scott means to play off the other two
against each other and Blip in between.
Neagle says he has got $1QO,000 to spend
for the office, atid Parker says he has got
$50,000 to pay for his re-election. Moses
appears to havo used up all his ammuni
jSST* Governor Palmer, of Illinois, in a
speech at the Laboral State Convention
of that State, said: "We are going to

It is stated that .Judge Thomas J.
Mackey, whoexpects to receive the nomi
nation for Governor at the hands of the
Radicals, (says the Lancaster Ledger,) is
soon to take tho stump in this State in
the advocacy of the repudiation of the last
issue of State bonds. Wo are willing to
wish the Judged success in this new
departure. There is scarcely a single
man in tho State so idiotic as to boliovo
that the large number of bonds issued
by the Financial Board during the past
eighteen months .^ere issued under strict
authority of law, and repudiation is tho
only way to get rid of an enormous debt
saddled upon us illegally

Orr aud Corbin at Greenville.
At the Grant Republican ratification
meeting at Greenville on the 4th, Judge
Orr and District Attorney D. T. Corbin
wero the speakers, and concerning their
crusade against tho Columbia thieves, (at
the bidding of their master, Grant,) a
correspondent of the Charleston News
furnishes tho following :
Orr spoke first, and-well, he is always
sensible. His speech was very mfich
such as ho delivered in .Columbia, advo
eating Grant's re-election, and attacking
the Ring in Columbia in no measured
But it is Corbin's speech I wish to re
port. Now, mark: It is Corbin, the State
senator ; it is Corbin, thc United States
district attorney; it is Corbin, the city
attorney ; it is Corbin, the codifier of our
laws ; it is Corbin, the Ajax Telam?n of
the .Republican party in this State, whose
speech I am reporting. It will surprise
and astonish you'and your readers. Af
ter advocating Grant's re-election, ?fcc,
he attacked the Ring in Columbia. I
had heard Carpenter and Butler in their
indictments of Scott ?t Co., at the last
election. I thought thoy had exhausted
the vocabulary of abuso against that
Ring; but oh ! if you had heard Corbin
you would say theirs was musketry, and
Corbin's artillery Columbiads. He nam
ed Scott, Parken Chamberlain, Ncagle,
F. J.*Moses, Jr. He pronounced them
all scoundrels, thieves, villains, tho very
worst and meanest of mon. Insisted that
they must bo driven out of tho party;
that they had deceived and betrayed thc
?arty ; that they were as bad as thc Ku
Klux, comparea them with them, (and
yon know" whai Corbin is on the Ku
Klux.) Ho asserted that, without au
certain knowledgebnbed thc last Legis
lature, aud bought them up to vote tho
Blue Ridge Railroad scrip, $1,800,000.
with ?175,0U0. That Moses had exceeded
everything ho had ever conceived in vii
lany and rascality. That he had issued
as the speaker of die House $100,000 o?
pay bills to people ?ill over the State
bribes to support him and enhance his
popularity. ?Many of them had never
been lu Columbia at all- and some were
paid as clerks who could not read or
write. That too King must bc expelled
from olllco at all hwiards; that thc Rc
publi.-an party mist perish if they did
not. lie oxeusedCirdor.0. lie said that
tho financial boort-Scott Parker and
Chamberlain-now'wihbed to issue moro
conversion bonds; fiat tiny v ?shed Car
dozo to sign thern-.lhat the law required
Cardo?) to do so; dat he, Corbin, advis
ed Cardozo not to d* so, but die rather
to throw himself onthe people, and they
would support him,and chat Cardozo de
termined to rot iu ji?l before bc would
sign anv more.
This is but a tithed' what he said. So
you sec tho RepuHican party in this
State is divided-Seltt and Moses hoad
one portion, Orr am Corbin the other.
Many think Moses ii so astute, cunning
and deceitful, and sc plausible and elo*
quent, that with ethstituents so igno
rant and vicious anc indifferent to the
merits ol' the questioi, it will be hard to
bailie him. Some of us thought wc saw
the " Reform Varty" redivivroi in Orr and
Corbin. It would* b< easy to defeat the
ring with other crnstituonls but with
those they have, 'SMiat shall we say?

Speaking of insincerity, it is the candi

fession that he has at times been "acting
in and co-operating' with political organi
zations with whose, leading doctrines I.
sometimes had n?fther, sympathy nor be

record. Here is a man who sets up for a
high-toned, consistent statesman, for to be
Vice President of the United States, who
admits that he has belonged to and work
ed with parties whose leading doctrines
he did not believe, and had no sympathy
with. We have, known of men overlook
ing minor differences of opinion with par
ties for some special temporary purpose,
but it is rare that men will make such a
cynical avowal as this of Wilson's-that
they see no objection to connecting them
selves with and working in, and for par
ties whose leading doctrines thev secretly
disavow and detest. What is this but a
confession of hypocracy, and how can we
trust a man who makes such a statement
about himself, for the object of showing
that he was not a real " Know-Nothing,"
but only a pretended one, all the time of
his membership with that faction ? Such
is, doubtless, Mr. Wilson's mbtive in pen
ning thia extraordinary confession. In or
der that we may think that he was not a
narrow-minded bigot some years ago, he
would prefer have us believe that he was
a hypocrite. TSuch is the dilemma-upon

DIED, on the 25th June, 1872, Mrs.

She was a consistent member of the
Methodist Episcopal Church for 60 years.
She adorned the church of her choice
with mire than ordinary zeal, by acts of
kindness and Christian fidelity, and boro
the heat and burden of her Christian day
Her husband was killed 55 years ago ;
she had several ^mall children to raise,
and being somewhat destitute, it took a
good deal ol' moral courage to withstand
the shock in her peculiar and trying con
ni tion. She managed to rear up her
children in credit and respectability. She
was the victim of sore disease and disap
pointment, but in all her distress she
found a source pf joy, by trusting in God.
Thus was exhibited in lier thc powor of
tho Gospel, for she rejoiced and shouted
aloud the praises of God while on her
death bed, and talked freely on the sub
ject of death. There seemed not to be a
cloud of doubt or fear over her spiritual
Sky. She is gone to the spiritland, where
she will not shed any more tears. Fare
well, our mother in Israel !" Thou art
gone to praise God forever.

Price, 94,00 Per Saw.
rpflESE GINS were sold the past sea
JL son for the first time. They ar?
made under Mr. Gullett'a personal su
pervision, who never allowa one to be
sent from his works until it has been
fully tested, and made to j fin perfectly in
every respect. This mode of testing ls
very important to the purchaser, as he
does not run the risk of receiving and
setting up a Gin to find* it, on trial, to be
imperfect. ' i
The IMPROVED GIN difiera materi
ally from the Steel Brush Gin formerly
sold by us, inasmuch as the fiteei Brush
has three brushes, while the new Gin has
but one. '
We guarantee every Gin .to be of very
light draft, to thoroughly clean the seed\

justed and gins very fast.
We respectfully refer to ail those-who
