The Overmastering Question of the
The New York Hernia] discourses upon
what it calls " the overmastering question
of the day" in the following striking man
ner : .
" Shall we have Cresarism or republi
canism?"' In our histoiy General Grant
has attained the position which Jefferson,
Jackson and Lincoln attained. He is
.. master of the political situation. Supreme
in a party which is supreme in the nation,
commanding our politics and legislation,
he ?3 irresistible. Our constitution, unlike
that of France and Spaiu, makes the Pres
idential office as impre<r- ible as the Czar,
impeachment is practiu, ./no punishment,
?nd no President can be reached except
by a revolution. It is, moreover, a pain
lui ard extraordinary tact that, while ive
rv politician in America is thinking over
the problem whether General Grant will
* or will not be a candidate for re election,
no leading republican has dared to say
that such a candidacy would be pra tical-,
3y an avowal of the "failure of republican
institutions. We see the unfortunate con
ditions of our society-corruption in Con
gress, on the Bench : in social life, luxury,
voluptuousness, craving for riches, the
absence of simplicity and. truth in our
lives. After Tammany Hall, and Erie
transactions, and Credit Mobilier, Cresa
rism ?3 a danger that eau only be overcome
by such a revolution as was needed to de-,
strov the Tammany King. Men like Mr.
Conkling, whose eloquence thundered like
the roar of Niagara against poor Mr. Gree
? loy and his fancie*, are silent uow. They
may say that they clo not speak because
they will not be rude or unjust to the
President. Thev will not speak because
they dare not. When any Senator sup
presses the truth within him because Cr?
.sar may frown, then he is a partisan of
Caesar. When any Senator has another
monitor for his political conscience than
the people's will ne is ready for any sur
Nor does it answer our arguments that
thevcharacter of General Grant forbids any
apprehension that he will be a candidate
for re election, or that, if elected, the lib
erties of the nation will k>e safe in his
hands. To this wo always answer that
when liberty depends upon the forbear
ance of any man it has no true life ; for
while we have Grant to day, who may be
trusted, whom shall we have to-morrow ?
Rome had other Casars than Julius-nay,
*hc had Brutus before Cresar. The evil is
in our constitution, in thc subservience of
our public men. Csesarism does not nec
essarily mean that C cesar shall be a vici
ous man. On the contrary, th<* men who
have mounted to supremo authority haye
generally been men of rare transcendent
gifts. What men were Caesar, Cromwell,
Napoleon-.' How rich in faculty and ex
perience ! how brave and renowned ! how
faithful to their country and its glory !
Cresarism always make a nation glorious,
but never free ; and it is because we would
rather have our country free than famous,
because wc see thc highest 'glory in the
truest freedom, that we press this discus
sion. Nor does the character of General
Grant entirely release him from anxiety.
He is a soldier ; lie knows the felicity of
authority. His ideas of the Presidency
have always been that it is in many senses
a personal office. True and faithful as he
has been, there are many things he has
done that show a tendency to Cresarism,
to the belief that, in some way, the Pres
ident has a supremacy of will that knows
no responsibility but to his own consci
ence. From-his first selection of a Cabi
net down to his extraordinary assignment
of his son to a command for which the ar
my records showed neither exouse nor pre?
c?dent, every now and then we Bee *the
Cosar spirit-the belief that there is a su
. prenne responsibilitv which in the.royal
legends is called " by the grace of God."
General Grant is no greater, no more pa
triotic, no more suited to his country, than
Caesar or Cromwell or Napoleon. Each
of these men fought for his country and
would have died for ii. In like manner
did General Grant. But what these men
achieved for Rome and England and France
did not prevent their assuming power
when it was bestowed.
Therefore we contend that all sentimen
tal issues in our politics should be post
poned until we have decided the funda
mental questions. Wc have seen France
pass through a trial which we should dread
to sec imposed upon America. We have
seen her institutions submit to a strain
which we are sure our own could not re
sist. The lesson taught by France we
-hould be swift to learn. . In the presence
of this spirit of Csisarism which pervades
?HIV politics and has expression in Wash
ington can we feel that there is no danger
to the Republic ? If it is true that Gen
eral Grant s friends mean to place him in
nomination foi a third tenn and hi: is weak
enough to accept, then tb*e issuo will be
upon us-au issac involving the national
freedom. We elected General < "rant a sec
ond time because his fame, his services
and thc unparalleled calumnies heaped
upon him required no less a vindication.
Tin's wc did as wc had done to Washing
ton and Lincoln. At the same time we
should gladly cud thc precedent here and
support tho one-term amendment. Be
yond that wc cannot go ; for if it is nec
essary to elect any mau a perpetual Presi
dent of the Republic wo have no Repub
lic. Unadulterated Republicanism is in
consistent with the idea of perpetual,
constantly renewed power. Better, as we
have said, abandon the expensive and ir
ritating forms of election and legislation
and government;uid return to our an
cient allegiance to Great Britain. The
Queen's government would no ?onbt re
gard us as something more than a colony,
and worthy of repr?sentation in Parlia
ment, and welcome us back with stars
and titles Wc should have then, what
wc aro afraid we have not now, the right
to pass judgment upon our rulers when
they no longer possess public confidence.

Civil Rights Issue in Gotham.
NEW YORK, July 12. '
The trial of the first civil rights case
took place yesterday. Aaron Richardson,
the proprietor and 'manager of the Opera
House, was placed on trial in the Court
of Sessions, on an indictment charging
him with a misdemeanor in violating the
provisions of what is known as* the civil
rights bill. Anna Lawyer, Margaret Pay ne,
John F. Payne and Michael Meehan were
examined on the part of the people, their
evidence mainly going to show that Payne's
servant, Lawyer, had been sent by him,
accompanied by his children, who are al
most white, to ithe box office of the Opera
Honse and procured seats down stairs, re
presentineth?t they were for the parents
of the children, and that on Payne, pre
senting the tickets at the door they*were
refused admission, and told that there was
a place for them in the gallery. The de
fence claimed that the tickets were pro
cured by false repr?sentations. The case
was give-r to the jury about six o'clock in
the evening, and they came in and report
ed they were unable to agree, and were
discharged. They stood ten for acquittal
and two for conviction. The two .jurors
wko held out for . conviction, is is said,
have always boen noted as Abolitionists.

A Heinous and Brutish Crime Charged
Against Gov. F. J. Moses, Jr.
From the Colleton Gazette, a strictly
Republican journal, and edited with abil
ity by Geo. F. McIntyre, Esq.. formerly a
Republican Senator from that County, we
copy the following article And we pub
lish this article, not that we endorse it,
but that public attention may be'brcfught
to the accusations of hellish lust con
tained therein against the preseut Chief
Executive of the State of South Carolina,
and that an investigation may be brought
about, and the to-nth or. falsity of the dis
gracefully outrageous reports clearly es
tablished. The charges are clear and dis
tinct, andar? boldly made by a man prom
inent in Bepublican ranks, and who, we
dare say, is responsible for his assertions.
And now, in behalf of an outraged peo
, pie, we demand an investigation-a close,
searching and sweeping investigation. If
"the charges cannot be sustained, let Geo.
F. McIntyre suffer the fullest penalty of
the law for his grossly libellous publica
tion. If, on the contrary, the charges
can be substantiated, and Moses is proven
the guilty monster that McIntyre pro
claims him, then in Heaven's name, let
the vile, dirty dog be disrobed of his Exec
utive mantle, kicked from the high office
he so loathsomely degrades, and become as
he must a by-word and reproach among
all people, having the slightest spark of
regard for decency and respectability.
The Republican party-those who elect
ed Moses to the Gubernatorial chair
should not suffer these accusations to pass
heedlessly by. Justice to Gov. Moses,
and justice to the entire people of the
State-white and colored, Republican and
Democratic-should and must impel the
Republican party to seek an investigation
in the premises.
Here is the article as we find it in the
editorial columns of.4h'? Colleton Gazeite:
History and numerous books of travel
in the east furnishes with many incidents
regarding the.;inhuman traffic indulged in
by the Turks, (we refer to the slave mar
kets where young innocent girls are sold,)
J who, prompted by last, let nothing stand
j in the way of their beastly gratifications,
and the mind naturally revolts in horror
from the contemplation of the fate of the
poor young creatures when once they are
made inmates of a harem. What will the
J popular feeling be when it is made gener
ally known that the Governor of this
I State has persons employed for no other
purpose than to act as procurers, inveigle
into his meshes and den young girls of
.J every description, regardless of their inno
cence, and whoj when once in his posses
sion, never go forth from him except as
poor tainted beings, to become in time, if
not immediately, miserable outcasts.
Prominent among his creatures who
I pamper to his villainous practices in this '
respect is one JI. C., a rather good look
ling person from the City of Churches,
who came to Columbia at the instance of
Judas Moses, to be by him employed in
I God knows what originally, but who cer
tainly was never known to engage in any
other business while in the Governor's em
ploy, than the fiendish calling we have
already alluded to. This young man plied
1 his calling along with a number of other
males and females likewise hired by Moses,
' and in some instances the man out-strip
1 j ped the master; one of which we shall
j This H.Q. met ata Pic-nic a young
girl of about fourteen or fifteen years of
age, who, it seems, took quite a fancy to
him, and he with the devil's work rife in
his heart, proceeded at once to ingratiate
I himself incer favor, entirely forgetful of
' This master's claim upon him concerning all
j possible victims. However, other wolves
j sent out to seek victims for the fiend who
j disgraces the Gubernatorial Chair, espied
I the pair and made a report of it at once
J to "his Excellency," at the same time dis
canting freely upon the beauty of both
j form and feature of the Intended victim.
I They received instructions to procure her
j at all risks-for his Excellency's self, who,
j now seemed jealous of the doings of this
j H. C., a creature he intended should visit
J Pic-nics and the like in his interest, and
J not irom any personal motive ; and they
j at once set about carrying out their in
I structions. livery effort of the smaller
fiends, however, proved fruitless to accom
I p;ish the hellish purpose in hand, and after
J many like attempts they reported to ' his
Excellency" their inabilty to serve him.
Now docs the arch fiend go forth huu
I self, and we blush to record it, found a
j not unwilling tcol in the girl's own moth
j er. God knows by what bribes or influ
I ence va thus bringing a mother to be will
1 ing to sacrifice her own child ; but certain
j it is that he succeeded in purchasing
the girl from her inhuman parent.
The result of a mother's influence over
her child is told in a few words. A close
carriage is sent by his Excellency to the
j mother's house, and as a further induce
ment to get the girl, to retnru in it to his
Excellency's house, the veritable H. C.,
for whom she seemed to have formed an
attachment, was sent with it to accompa
ny her in the rid-* which was to convey
her to her ruin. She consented. Swiftly
was she carried to this den of infamy in
habited by Judas Moses and ais-for the
time-victims, and on many a succeeding
afternoon the same close carriage might
have been seen going and returning on
this :;elf-same mission, always intrusted to
the care and discretion of the aforesaid
H. C. Now for the denouement. On one
occasion H. C. happened lo be absent
and thc mission ' of conducting the now
ruined girl to and from, his Excellency's
establishment on Assembly street, was in
trusted to another, who, upon arriving at
the girl's residence, was by her informed
that she could7iotpossibly accompany him
back until she could consult with ?. C.
This creature of our Governor immediate
ly returned to him and eported the words
of the girl. Disappointment jud rage
filled the heart of Judas. He sent af
once for H. C. and dismissed him in no
kindly manner from his service, but wheth
er from fear of H. C's knowledge of his
doings or some other motive, he did not
ieave him altogether to his own resources
to gain a livelihood, but had him appoint
ed Sergeant of tho Guard at the Peniten
tiary, where he now is, and should be, bul
under different circumstances. Possibly
J udas himself may have a correct idea
that he himself will eventuate there, and
it may be that H. C., was by him placed
there to act, if called upon, in the capaci
ty of " a friend at court.'' Deep is the de
gradation that the people of this State have
been made to endure, yet could any one
in the ante bellum days have ever imag
ined the proud Stateiof South Carolina
sinking so'low as to haye-fin- her Chief
Executive such a character "as is Judas
A Desperate Fight.
SAN FRANCISCO, July 12.-At Marys
ville a bold attempt was made by three
men to rob the bank of Decker Jewett.
Frank Whipple, one of the robbers, en
tered the bank and presented a pistol at
Mr. Jewett's head. Mr. Jewett fell down
and made his way to the desk, where Mr.
Bingham, the chief clerk, was writing.
Whipple leaped over the counter followed
by Bingham, who instantly shot Whip
le in the neck. A desperate and general
ght then ensued. Several shots were
fired, when'the combatants clubbed their
pistols and finally Whipple turned to run
out of the bank when Bingham and Jewett
simultaneously fired upon him with dou
ble barrel shot guns, and he fell mortally
wounded on the side walk. Whipple says
he had two confederates.

NAPLES, Juno 21st.-r 1873.
Dear Advertiser,-J have now been in
Naples four or. five .days, enjoying the
dolicious climate to tho utmost, and vis
iting all the points and Qm??ts that tottf^
ist? ?ronerally. .consider 'of nuist .-bjipor
/tance. Of ali" their ?iti?sy after- Rome,
["ih'? Italians are most proud of Naples!. A
national motto says "see Naples and die."
This lovely city lies on tho world-famed
bay of the same name, has 000,000 in
habitant's, and is, all in all, tho most
charming spot upon earth. It is also the
home and paradise of beggars-Lazzaro
ni. These aro bad enough 'throughout
Italy, but here they are totally pestifer
?ous and unendurable. I hayo visited only
a few 0/ the three hundred churches for
which Naples is famous. They are inor
dinately rich in style and ornamentation,
and ".'.I look alike to me.
The National Mus?um here is one of
the hnest in the world-filled with bron
zes, marbles, jewels, and Pompeiian an
tiquities too numerous and too beautiful
to attempt to describe. In this Museum
I inspected a collection of ancient Mum
mies in a glass case, two of which are'in
such a perfect state of preservation that
the very hair upon their heads is lifelike.
In company with a pleasant party, I
have visited the Isle of Capri, the Blue
I Grotto, and, last but not least, the-ruined
city of Pompeii under Mt. "Vesuvius.
We drove to Pompeii by private carriage,
?ind remained there over a half day ex
amining this great historical scene. Al
most the entire city has been cleared of
the lava, mud and debris of the great
eruption, and the ruins now stand clear
and clean, above ground ; so much so
that ono walks about this city of the
dead in the same manner as about a city
of the living. The house, of Diomed,
the Street of the Tombs, tho City Gate
(with the sentry .box where the soldier
was found dead on dutyJ the City. Walls,
the Forbin, t?ie Amphitheatre, tho Ba'fh's,
the Theatre, the Temples, aro all objects
of noblest and intensest interest. But of
still greater interest to me was "Vesuvius,,
which is at present so inactive as to allow
travelers to ascend te its very crater
The crater itself, however, js always
burning, and always sending clouds
of sulphurous smoke high into tho air.
I had the good fortune to reach the high
est point, and to walk as it were upon
the lips of the crater, looking down into
the fearful abyss and snuffing the fiery
brimstone vapors, and gazing upon the
red-hot openings hero and there all
around. Vesuvius is 4000 feet above
the sen, and so steep "that its extreme
summit can only be reached upon foot.
Of the many travelers who attempt thc
ascent, not mof? than one-third ever
reach the crater. They " faint by the
way," and'must be content with roam
ing about what rs called " The'Hcrmit
age." By dint of strong physical endu
rance, howeyer, and the pulling, tugging
and grappling of an experienced guide,
your correspondent "made the trip"
and "saw the elephant." I. was well
paid Zo.; my exertions and difficulties.
The distance "across the crater is about n
half mile, and I walked almost entirely
around it viewing the depth from all
sides. At certain points it was almost
impossible to stand the withering heat
and the strong odor of sulphur.. Vesu
vius is certainly one of the greatest won
ders of tho world.
In visiting Capri we spent a wholo day
roing and returning-by boat on the Bay
Capri is a small mountainous island in
tho Bay of Naples, and In ancient times
was tho summer resort of the Roman
aristocracy. At its highest point it is
1S00 feet above thc sea'; it has about 5000
inhabitants. Augustus built a great
summer Palace on tho island, and subse
quently Tiberius erected twelve Villas
in honor of 12 Gods of heathen mytholo
gy-traces of which buildings still re
The Blue Grotto is also on the shore of
the Bay. You enter it in a small boat,
and thc entrance being only S feet h
height, you are obliged to lie down in
the boat as tho latter glides in. Ill thc
interior the roof is 40 feet hight above
the water, while- tho dimensions of the
Grotto otherwise are 165 by l'K) feet The
effect of the refraction of the dazzling
blue light upon every object is tho most
beautiful thing I have over seou.

A Letter From Missouri.
MIAMI, Mo, July 8th, 1873.
Dear Advertiser :-Now, whileour far
mers aro busily engaged harvesting thc
best crop of wheat ever raised in Mis
souri, it may bo well to talk with you a
little about Salino County and the crops
This County measures four hundred
thousand (400,000) acres, all rich and
nearly all arabic land. The soil is from
two to fifteen feet deep. During tho last
twetye months there have been fattened
in this county ar.fl sold, thirty thousand
(30,000) cattle, three hundred thousand
(300,000) hogs, and a considerable num
ber of horses and mules. Tho Missouri
River borders on our county for one hun
dred miles, making nearly three-fourth*
of its boundary, and affording several
landings in the county at which towns
have sprung up.* We have also one Rail
road til rough the county.- Our towns are
Marshall, Brownsville, Miami, Arrow
Rock, Malu Bend. We have sovcral
small villages besides. Tho towns named
number on an average about a thousand
each. The population of the county is
twenty-five thousand (25,000).
A common estimate for our present
wheat crop is twenty to thirty five bush
els; which, for estimating thc crop, wc
will put at an average of twenty-five
bushels per acre. The area of our coun
ty in wheat this year is estimated at forty
thousand (40,000) acres, which will give
us for tho present 3'ield ono million (1,
.?0,000) bushels. This, our farmers think,
is now worth one million dollars. Now
that I have run up this estimate for you,
I am not willing to leave it without a
hint at deductions,-such as tlie rent on
land worth forty to fifty dollars per aero,
cost of machinery, (about ?000 being ne
cessary to stock an ordinary farm), cost
of thrashing (0 cts. per bushol), cost ol
hands harvesting (board and two dollars
per day, some oven throe dollars). Some
women are getting two dollars per day
for binding wheat.
Our prospect for acorn crop is remark
ably good. Farmers of this county will
engage now to deliver from the pni in
the field, when dry next fall, at twenty
cents per bushel.
Oat? are heavy, estimated to yield 40
to 00 bushels per acre.
Clover and the grasses all very good.
Our farmers make clover hay under a
high pressure system, as they do most
of their work. They run tho rake only
a few hours behind the mower, and pile
the wilted clover in the barn. It molds
a little, but makes tu>v of which horses
and other stock au very fond. Men
have not time for saving /odder in this
In closing, let me say, that the contin
ued good health of my family and my
self, in our adopted home, is indeed re
markable, as is also our success under
God's blessing in our now field.
Tho Edgefield and Edisto Baptist As
sociations, meeting both in our old neigh
borhood next autumn, do, by this re
markable coincidence, invite us to visit
our friends in the homo State then ; and
cur abiding attachment for the friends of j
?xor youth ?sys comes, but^e aro not will
ing at this distance from the time to say
we will come.. You shall know before

^-r- .To Facts and Figures.
" T?&arilt, dear Brutus, is not in our
"feStar, '." ;.
Bat In ourselves, that we are underlings."
The Public are indebted to "Facts and
Figures'' for tho earnest a.id laborious
oiforts which hrivo'boen made by him,
through the Press, for thc construction
of a Tram or Wood Railroad from Edgc
Jield C. H. to Pine House,
j The urgent necessity fdr Railroad coin
'm'unicatinn of some.sort to connect Edg?
field villago.with tb?.trunks.of thcjjreat.
Rail thoroughfares to the cities and towns
of this and other States, ls too apparent
to need elaboration at this time. For
twenty five or thirty years perhaps, there
have been hold In this place Railroad
meetings, conventions, and all the ma
chinery of inexperienced and inexpert
men, to effectuate the great object of in
ternal improvements in the way of Rail
ways, without success ; and to-day, the
venerable old Village is like, in its mis
fortunes, to an "old Tower, from whioh
rats are e~in sajd to mn away." What
has been the cause of our failure hereto
fore; is doubtless owing to the usual want
of concert of action among ?mr people
from the want of-definite and accurate
information of the value;Ojf Railroads, in
developing the resources' of a country,
and thereby increasing tho value of prop
erty, abd extending the blessings of"oiv?
lization to places illumined only by dim
reflections from other lights. Perhaps
another cause has.been tho outlet for the
surplus capitaltjf thc people, in former
days, In tho purcli?so of lands and ne
groes, which were tho only investments
that they were thoroughly versed rn, and
in which they felt secure of good profits.
An agrinultnral- people are rarely Pro
grcssionifsts or Reformer*. It is neces
sary to demonstrate to them the actual
and certain results of improvements, be
-fore they aro willing to embark their
capital m the venturo. There is also an
other Treason In tho inflated conceit of
people, who being wedded, to some pe
culiar notion of their own, cannot per
ceive and recognize the advantages of
the plans of others. It is necessary that
extremists on both sides modify their
views, or probably, the next generation
will find in old Edgofield Village the
outlines only of its former existence. .
There is one fact upon which wo all
agit ", and that is, that we must bc on
the linc of communication with Hie outer
world, or we will inevitably go to decay
and ruin. Edgefield Villago is non off
the track, whilst tho rush of business
and travel is passing by. and aw?" from
ft.. Business men in the village.* instead
of making an effort to restore the vitality
of tho place, are locating elsewhere, and
are leaving us only tho vices and crimes
of a stagnant, and purulent civilization.
Law, Order, Morality, Religion and De
cency are fast fading from our socialism,
and barbarism riots in rampant madness
In our midst. Something must be done,
and that quickly, if we are to be saved
from ruin. A project is suggested by
"Facts and Figures" to commence the
work of rejuvenating and improving the
old village, by the construction of such
a Road as the people are able to build,
and which will answer their purposes as
well as that which'is termed a first class
iron Railway. Try the cheapest Road
tust-that which you arc alic lo build.
Ascertain from its business whether it
will pay-afterwards whether the busi
ness done will authorize a bettor road ;
and theil, an I not until then, endeavor
tobiiilila better one.' We must creep
before wo walk, and those who advocate
a first '"Iiiss iron Railway at present, lits
regatd tli ! prim iry law? of locomotion.
There is ono thing certain,: Wc can
build a tramway frpiu tho village ;y tho
Pine Moline, and-equip it at a compara
tively small cost;*btit wo cannot build a
first class iron Railway at present wi:li
ent a heavy outlay of funds, which <v.n
nm be collected in thc present uonditi-m
ol' things, and stringent sta;*! nf :?n?
money market. Tin; question is Ived
into ono of two alternatives, ? it!: r l i
build a tramway, from Edgelicl.l C. Li.
to thc Pine House, at a comparatively
small expense, and experiment on tho
chances nf such a Ball way paying .n?en
cxp?iftes, nr begin by a lirnt class Rail
way, that never wilt bo built, and .'here
by los? forever all chances of coniH-eimn
with thc grout arteries which wiil place j
us in connection with the grund'contres j
of trade, travel and civilization.

AIKKN, July Uth, ls;.;.
MR. EDITOR-NOW, since summer has
fully asserted itself, and thc dull, sou KUI
be.g^un, wherein newspaper men have
burder work thun at any other lime gath
ering and manufacturing items-immy
times when desperate getting locals'?
from the family recipe book-perhaps a
word or two from thc City of Health,
(so-called by sanguine property hoblers)
will help to "fill space" in the columns
of your esteemed paper.
Thc timo has passed, Mr, Editor, when
the average Edgcfieldian could ?lng that
pathetic and satirical stralr. ?
"Barnwell County, Aiken Town,"
with evident gusto. Thc "Town'" having
attained a degree of prosperity rather
above that of its neighbor-though the
latter is surrounded by tho best of cotton
lands, and, like a self-made man, is not
averse in prosperity, to listen to a recital
of the tale, "How from-poverty I came."
So tho song new would but show a pleas
Tho good fortune of Aiken lies in thc
virtue of its climate, which has made it
one of tho most thriving towns in the
State, with anotuneuviable future. The
season for visitors from the North has;
been over a month or more; but thc
boarding-house keepers having rested
during the intorim, are now exerting
themselves, and with apparent Kucees3,
. to induce a tide of visitors for tito R?m
mer. It is aireadv a favorite resort of
tho people pf Augusta, and il is as easy
of approach from thal city, through the
as are its suburbs. Savannah ami Char
leston are also beginning anew io visit
Aiken during tho hot months. It is a
pleasure to hope tho day not Var distant
when the ante-bellum summer visitors,
-those who built tho many neal honsos
about tho town-will have so far recov
ered their fortunes as again to make this
their regular^ su in ni er homo.
No town In the State ls so admirably
situated for both winter and summpr re
sort as this isl ltd pure and dry air is
beneficial alike to the consumptive and
debilitated, and its drives, scenery, .tc,
is attractive to thoso who -wish to escapo
a while from pent-up city lifo.
An organization has existed hero du
ring the winter for tho Promotion of
Amusements for the benefit of visitors
for that season, but recently an associa
tion for the advancement of tho interests
of tho tow;; has boen organized jp its
I stead. Its members are composed of
\ euergotic men, and there is no doubt but
that tho place will bo materially lu refit
ted by tho workings of the Society. Its
object is to forward and instituto any en
terprise which will build up .and people
tho town,-making it still more attrac
tive and the voritivo " Saratoga of the
South." As the Society is in its infancy
it is nt present looking to tho beautifying
of the streets and minor improvements.
Very soon, howover, more important
objecta ?HU engtet? ito attention. Aa
this society will aoon be in good working
order, would it not bo expedient, Mr.
Editor, to sendVdbwn your energetic
Railroad man, iorhim to bring before
tho^oci.ei?'tliG importanco'-of a Railr?&J
betWeen 'h'?re and ? Edgefield.? ' Let'biin

another ia an euterprise.of ijj'uhml tj?nc
lit.^ho?^h many?plims ?fa^?'adva?co
men't of Aiken have been discussed, it
appears that no tboughk?f another Rail
road has entered the minus of its citizens.
Especially a road bringing it in direct
communication with the far West.-a
road which would benefit the town more
than any other. Heretofore the citizens
have boen content with one Railroad,
and their attention devoted to improve
ments within the' c?rp?ratellniits oT the''
Yesterday I. heard that.tho S. C. Rail
road Company^as now interesting itself
in a road fromvHere to the Pine House,
and that soon a proposition would be
made by that Company to the people of
Edgefield and Aiken to this effect: that
if the people would subscribe ?200,000 to
a road between Aiken and Ninety-Six
tho Company would build the road from'
Aiken to the Pine House. My informant
was recently in tho City of Charleston,
and got his information direot from the
highest officials of 'the S C. Railroad
Company.' It is true, that Company has
for several y??ars talked of building the
portion of road spoken'of, but, that now
it is said it means "business;" It is to
be hbped that the information is true. In
my opinion there is more hope now for
? Railroad to Edgefield than ever.
In the way of business our town is
quite dull. The " Glorious Fourth" did
not occasion the circulation of many
greenbacks, thodgh crowds of the colored
population filled the town with full in
tent and purpose of enjoyin,. theyself."
They seemed to be perfectly happy para
ding with drum and fife, sweltering in
the sun and firing a small cannon-in
honor of the day.
The crops in this section are smaller
than_they were this time last year, but
having got rid of the grass are in fine
order and growing vigorously.
It is thought about one-sixth more
cotton is planted this year than last^ but
there is no increase in the area planted
in corn. We are getting good( rains and
the planters are satisfied with the pros
pects so far.
The Peach crop has not amounted to
much for several years, owing to the
seasons and negleot of planting new
trees, consequently more attention has
been paid lately to the cultivation of
cotton ; and it is now demonstrated that
tho poor lands of Aiken, with the aid of
fertilizers, will produce cotton, and that
farming can be made profitable here.
Last year oho of dor most successful
planters made fwerity-seve>i bales ol'
cotton cm twentyacres of land, not over
a mile from Aiken Town. * T.

What Should be Done with a Church
Member, who Traffics lu Ardent Spirits f
A paper read before the Union Meei..ig
of tlie 4th Division, Edgefield Associa
tion, on 27th day of June, 1873, by J. S.
MCKIE, and published by request of the
In this case I am of the opinion the
Church should be as kindly affectioned
Jowai-d sucli a brother as the case will
permit, and endeavor by brotherly love
to dissuade him from his course. His
duty, howevor, is plain. He should im
mediately forsake the traffic which is
offensive to his brethren, as his bounden
duty. Romans, 14 Chapter, 13, lil, ll vs.
" Lot us not therefore judge one another
any more ; but judge this rather that no
man puta stumbling-block or an occa
sion to fall in his brother's way. Let us
therefore follow after the things which
make for peace, and things wherewith
one may edify another. It is good neither
to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any
thing whereby thy brother stumbleth,
or is oll'ended, or is made weak." .
Tho scriptures required UH to walk cir
cumspectly. It ought to be noticed that
public opinion is changed, and changing
very fast, on this subject; and thc traffic
in ardent spirits cannot bo entered into
now as safely as it could sortie years ago.
I think it is now satisfactorily ascertained
that there is no lasting benefit whatever
in* ardent spirits. Ic must be morally
wrong to oller for sale, that which the
vender knows can do the buyer no good.
It must bo worse to offer for sale that
which ho knows, while it can do him no
good, may do him much harm. We
! would regret very much were we to al
low ourselves under any pretext, to en
gage in a traffic which would make it our
interest to encourage our fellow men to
ruin themselves for time and eternity.
And such must bo the fatal step of those
who enter into the traffic of that much
abused commodity, ardent spirits.
It is wise and safe in man to study the
will of God, and endeavor to walk be
fore him to all well pleasing. To bo in
different to his honor, must be offensive
to his majesty and provoking to his
wrath. We are commanded whether wc
eat or drink, or whatever wo do, to do
all to tho glory of God. This ought to
regulate the affairs of lifo aud the pleas
ures of taste. Wo may offend in eating
and drinking. -This, howevor depends
upon our motive, and the oxtent of our j
indulgence. So, Ibeliovo, with the traffic
of liquor. Our Creator raado us depen
dent on wholesome food for growth and
health, and has graciously given us sxp
petites and cravings for it. The gratifi
cation of these natural desires, so far as
consists with tho cuds . be secured,
must be in accordance with Ids pleasure, [
who gives us richly all things to enjoy.
Beyond this must be injurious and offen
sive intemperance. It lias been .asked
"cannot liquor he lawfully used by a
Church member?" I remember to have
seen the following answer by an eminent
divine: "In just so far as they can be
proven to be needful, cither for the good
of tho user or for tho happiness of the
community, otherwise their usewillbej
injurious, and by thedictatesof common
sense ought to bo declined."
But says one, " docs not tho Bible allow'
their use?" Just so far and no farther
titan they, are beneficial. Tho -same
author says, "Tho Bible does not pormit
their nse for food ; for there is no sus
tenance in them. It can't allow their 1
j use for tM fulfillment of any but the in
nocor* .a natural desires, but there are
I no sue. Desires for thom to satisfy. Thero
is nothing in thom that can gratify any
natural propensity. 1 think the Bible
allows their use, then, only so far as.
they are medical, That is, in cases of dis
ease where tho patient is sinking, or a
, complication of complaints where some
thing is needed to sustain or invigorate
The author above roforred to further
says; " If tho desire for alcoholic liquors
must be classed with tho lusts of the
flesh-and I canuot see that it belongs to
any other company-then tho Bible must
be at war with tho traffic of it; becauso
its tendency isas much, if not more than
any other, to lill the world with corrup
tion. And if God is at variance with tho
causes of sin, and strikes at tho root of
iniquity, he must be opposed to tho
.traffic of spirits as a most fruitful source
of moral evil, much unrighteousness
and ungodliness on earth. It must,
therefore, be morally wrong forachurch
membor to traffic in ardent spirits."
