BE HAPPY AS YOU CAN.
thia life is not all sunshine :
Nor is it yet all showers,
/ But storms and calms alternate,
As thorns among the dowers.
And while wo seek the roses.
Tho thorns full oft we scan,
Still let us, though they wound us,
Be happy as we can.
This life has heavy crosses
As well as joys to share,
And griefs and disappointments
Which you and I must bear.
Yet, if misfortune's lava
Entombs hope's dearest plan,
Let us, with what is loft us,
Be happy as we can.
Tito sum of our enjoyment
Is made of little things,
As oft the broadest rivers
Are formed from smallest springs.
Bj' treasuring small waters
The rivers reach their span ;
So we increase our pleasures
Enjoying what we can.
There may bc burning deserts
Through which our feet must go,
Bnt there are green oases
Where pleasant palm-trees grow.
And if we may not follow
The path our hearts would plan,
Let us make all around us
As happy as wc can.
Perchance we may not climb with
Ambition to its goal,
So lot us answer " Prosont"
When duty calls thc roll !
And, whatever our appointment,
Be nothing less than man,
And, cheerful in submission,
Be happy as we can.

RICHMOND, Va,, x\ug. 20.-Ric
mond society has been ali a Hutt
to-day over the revelation cl the fa
that Miss MaLtie Ould oi this city, cei
brated far arni wide as L"ing Vi
ginia's greatest belie, was marri?
yesterday moi liing in Salem, Va.,
little out-of-the-way station, on ti
Richmond and Danville Railroad,
Mr. Oliver J. Schoolcraft. The abo
was extensively rumored last eve
ing, but the couple arriving hore
the afternoon, kept the facts from tl
public, and nothing was aseeiiain<
until to-day, when, on account
certain infoimalities in the Laarriuj
iicense obtained at Salem, the coup
were remarried in the groomja su
urban villa near Richmond, by ti
Rev. Alex. Weddell.
Miss Ouhi is ubout 28 years of
and Mr. Schoolcraft is about ar
a mere boy in appearar.ee. She
the daugh'er of Judge Robert Oui?
a statesman who figured in tho Uo

Gen.? 3IcCleIlau's Opi?ioni
The letter in which Gen. McClel
lan announces to the world that he
will support Gov. Tilden is of a high
ly solid, not to say didactic character.
One of the most important passages
in this document is that in which he
pays a, deserved compliment to Gov.
Hayes. " I have," he says, " the
highest respect for the character and
intelligence of the Republican candi
date for the Presidency, and believe
him to be an upright gentleman ; but
it seems to me quite impossible that
he can change thc organization and
policy ol' his party." We beg leave
to suggest that it is something en
couraging that thc candidate who
will probably be elected is at least
" an upright gentleman." The or
ganization and policy of his party
were to a certain extent changed, as
everybody knows, when he was nomi
nated. Tiny will be changed more
thoroughly should he be elected.
Moreover, suppose we should say of
Gov. Tilden : We have the highest
respect for the personal character and
intelligence of the Democratic candi
I date for thc Presidency, and believe
?i'm to be an upright gentleman; but
it seems to us ?juite impossible that
he can change the organization and
nojicv of his party." It is true that
Gen. McClellan finds great cause for
encouragement in thc course of the
Democratic majority >n the Hor^e of
Representatives; bat not being able
j to see it with his eyes, wc cannot de
; rive from it the same satifaction. The
j fact is that neither of the parlies has
an unexceptionable record, and the
voter who acknowledges no fealty to
either must be governed in his deter
mination by his estimate of the can
Gen. McClellan, in muming i.p the
results of the civil war, ob-erves that
" we have nothing more to do with
than, except to accept them frankly,
and to watch that they remain in
tact.". But he makes a great though
somewhat* mysterious point in favor
i of Gov. Tilden.. He will, we arc
to!t], " respect the autonomy*' of the
Southern States. We are not sui"
that we know precisely what the
General means by " autonomy." : ut
. we suspect a cat under that mealy
philosophical word. When it. came
to practical " autonomy" we fear that
a Democratic President., with the
Democratic party to back him, might
i give us a bigger dose of " autonomy
? than would be desirable. AH om*
i mischiefs have come ol' the doctrine.
i which Gen. McClellan hints at-of
? loose talk abou? " autonomy ;" and
i we doubt if it will help Gov. Tilden
i much to have this Caihounism, even
' in a modified form, brought out just
i at this critical moment in his behalf.
? The people of the United States have
i had quite enough down South " au
; tonomy" already.-X. Y. Tribune.
" When a negro joins a Democratic
club he si^is his death warrant."-;
ifznwt's Speech ot Gadsden..
And when a Radical, black or
white, attempts to execute that death
. warrant from this time forth in South
Carolina, he lut digs his own grave.
When * colored man has the honesty
1 and the manliness to come out from
among the party of thieves and plun
? derers, and vote with thc men who
. desire io sec South Carolina once
? more a \>\ace where every man can
live at peace with his neighbor, where
every man may earn bread for his
wife and children, knowing that while
1 iic is toiling for it no thieves are plot
ting in the halls ol its Legislature to
steal a large patt of it from him,
such mei.' will be prntectcd by the
Democracy of the State, let their
-olor or politics be what they may.
Such threats will not be permitted to
be carried ont in South Carolina any
longer, not a day, net an hour. For
eight years you have driven the un
informed men of your race over thc

Tbs end of the campaign in the
. Yellowstone Valley is most impotent.
: Three columns set out early in the
. Summer to drive Silting Bull and the
; Sioux across the Missouri to their
? reservations. The advance of one
; column was checked in a skirmish on
tiie headwaters of the Rosebud, and
til? cavalry of thc northern division
I wore i 'd into a dea;h-trap on the
.; Little Big Horn and butchered like
dogs. Gen. Te;ry on the Yellow
. stone and f?en. Crook at Goose Creek
. called for roe:.forcements, and after
I protracted delays effected a junction
! on the Rosebud. Then began a wild
: goose cha.se after the Indians. Tho
. valleys of the Rosebud, the Tongue,
' and the Powder Rivers were ran
t sacked, but no Indians were found.
Sitting Bull and his . entire force had
. quietly crossed the Yellowstone and
' gone north. Two regiments will be
. left in the valley during thc Fail and
? Winter, and pr?parations will be
i made to resume operations against
; the Sioux carly in the Spring. The
i campaign, as a whole, reflects no
. credit upon or.r army. Sitting Bull
. is the only general who has won a
i reputation.-New York Tribune.

The Edgefield demonstration, which
R ?3 the key note and entering wedge
! to thc campaign, has struck terror to
the brave (?) hearts which have here
tofore so gallantly led the assault
upon the State treasury and State
credit. Its effects arc not confined

Jjj IGHTEEN HUNDRED and SE^NTY-SIX
is the Centennial Year of the United States of Ameri
ca. It is the first time for sixteen years that the lower
House of the Nationa^Coijgress has been Democratic;
and the frauds and corruptions of the Republican party
during those years will no doubt be now investigated
and exposed with a merciless logic-and without fear,
favor or affection.
The aspirations of Grant Jbr a Third Term, as well
as tlie general tendency in'every department of the
government towards Centralism, is also to be checked
or Grant and an Empire must be the result.
THE ADVERTISER will keep up with the News
and Prospects of the day in these respects-and will
make its columns
VEHICLES OF TRUTH, PROGRESS, PA
TRIOTISM AND PURE DEMOCRACY.
This is also the year of the Presidential, State and
County elections. The coming elections in South Car
olina in November, are of greater importance to the
people than any event for the past hundred years. In
fact, the present year is to witness thc triumph of thc
advocates of good government or their defeat. And a
defeat will be absolute ruin. In such a case mongrel
ism and miscegenation must ultimately be more or less
the curses of South Carolina. There can be but little
difference in this respect between thc whites of South
Carolina and the people of the West Indies and the
South An>wiouii jdikatoo. rutil? uf?itte pc^pio xrf iia&?u*ie
must control the negroes or be controlled by them.
And the lat ter consummation wi il ultimately sink the
identity of our race.
" A. Straight Eight !"
Is thc Motto of THE ADVERTISER for the next
campaign. Jt is L Jtter to fight it out on that line, even
if we be defeated, than to win on any other. It is the
only honest course; it is the only manly course; and it
is the only path in which white men can consistently

To MERCHANTS and MANUFACTURERS,
THE ADVERTISER offers great inducements for
advertising, enjoying, as it does, a large circulation in
its native County-one of the largest and richest in the
State, with a population of 42,486, twice as many as
the city pf Augusta, Ga., and nearly as many as the city
of Charleston, S. C.-as well as quite an extensive
circulation in the neighboring States of North Carolina,
Georgia and Florida, and a limited circulation in a
number of the Western and South-Western States.
We earnestly appeal to our Friends to giv$us their
hearty support, that we may be the better able to make a
good fight against the combined forces of Radicalism,
Mongrclism and Centralism, and in the interests of White
