GOD BE PRAISED !
The Old Hero Thinks ? He Has
^Turned the l'orner."
For three days after the amputation of
his leg, Gov. Hampton's condition was
extremely critical. Then, for three or
four days, he was reported as steadily
improving-past the crisis. Thenagaiu,
on Monday, the sudden and horrifying
announcement was made that he was
certainly dying-was beyond ail hope.
And now, as we go to press on Wednes
day at noon, comes the cheering news
that he has again rallied We subjoin
the very latest telegrams that we can
obtain. They are from the Augusta
Chronicle and Constitutional ist, of Tues
day and Wednesday:
COLUMBIA, December 16.-Hampton's
condition is deplorable. The absent

be expected. We are to lose h:ui.

He has certainly been much worse i'or
the past two days; but to day has rallied
COLUMBIA, December 17, 9 P. M.
Gov. Hampton's condition isstill critical.
He, however, told a gentleman who saw
him at six this evening that be thought
he had turned the corner. He takes
nourishment in modeiation and alto
gether his condition is more hopeful.
It is now ascertained that no less than
forty Protestant ministers died of the yel
low ieverduring the epidemic in the South.
This is a sad mortality. Whilst a few
may have run fi om the pestilence the min
isters generally must have stood manfully
at their posts, or there could not have
been any such mortality among them. As
far as we have been able to learn only
some lew Northern Methodist preachers
fled. The SoutLern born remained with
their flocks and, forty of them died on the
field of duty. All honor to their memo
ry. A spleudid shaft, or a grand tree
memorial church should be erected to the
memory of the forty martyrs. Some eight
or nine Presbyterian ministers died in
Mississippi alone of the fearful scourge,
We have recorded the fact that thirty
two Catholic priests are reported as hav
ing perished from the same destroyer. The
physicians, too, were great sufferers, and
very many of them died. We have nor,
seen an exact statement of the number.
The scourge brought out some of the no
blest traits of humanity, whilst also re
vealing some of the ugliest and most re
pellant characteristics of poor fallen hu
A recent trip to Charleston revealed to
us. more dearly than we have before seen
or felt it, the utter stagnation prevailing
ia business. Not alone in comme4ciui
circles is this depression felt. First/the
planters are falling behind, then the mer
chants who have sold them goods upon
time fall behind with their factors, and
from these two centres of prosperity the
sluggish streams of stagnant business per
meate to all industries and all trades and
professions. Thc cry of ;'hard times" is
universal. Not alone is it heard here in
our immediate locality, where severe
droughts cut short our crcr?, but from
all parts of the Stale the cry is the
The question is not how "to tide our
selves along," "waiting for the better
times," but it is what policy to pursue by
which we can regain a plane of solid, sub
stantial, firm prosperity. The reply is an
old one, so often heard that our farmers are
grown weary of its repetition. Never
theless, so full is it of importance, so preg
nant of possible good results, that we re
peat it. Omit planting so much cotton
raise more hogs, oats, wheat and com.
For ourselves, we believe it would be a
good thing if cotton went to three cents
a pound if it would force our people to
investments in the line of manufactures,
where our cotton would be converted into
cloths, and towns would spring up whose
inhabitants would consume the surplu
sace of other product? which we could
NEGROES IX CONGRESS.
It is said that in the Forty-sixth Con
gress there will be but one negro-Sena-11
tor Bruce, of Mississippi, unless our
O'Hara should gain the seat from the See
ond District. In Washington it is freely
predicted that Bruco will bo the last of
his race who will ever get to Congress. | '
The Radicals of the North who control
matters in some Statesand cities will P
not elect tho "colored man and brother,"
and in the South il looks as if he did not
stand much chance of political promo
tion. In 1S70, there were nine blacks in
Congress; in 1S72, seven; change with a
bale of cotton to be in 1874, four; in 1ST?;,
three; and in 1879 the prospect is tl at
there will be but one. After that tue
place that knows him no more forever.
In the next House there will bo one
hundred and fifteen new members out of |
two hundred and ninety-three. Of these
some have served in former pears.
FIVE DOLLARS A DAY FOR
The House of Representatives has made | i
a good compromise by passing a bill al
lowing members five dollars a day for not
more than thirty days. The reaction from | I
the exorbitant rates of previous sessions
led many to demand that thc pay should [ *
be fixed at three dollars a day ; but sev
eral members showed that this reduction
would practically prevent poor men from
serving in the Legislature, as incid? nial
expensas are no inconsiderable matter, and t
three dollars will not cover them. It is e
much better to give a good per diem and
to limit the length of sessions. The la
borer is worthy of his hire, but he must
n>t be too long "finishing bia job. L'nd r
the proposed bill, the pay of the members
will be only about twenty five thousand
dollars, against several hundred thousand ?,
in the palmy days of I?adicalism. And f,
besides the consideration of exr-nse, a c<
short session will be of service in prevent
ing useless legislation. Only measures of "
general interest will receive attention. li

ing to spend a month in Columbia, but they T

STRONG SUGGESTIONS TO OUR
MEMBERS OF THE GENE
RA L" ASSE tl R LY.
Editors Edgefield Advertiser :
While ihe members ol' the Legislature
are wrangling over the "State's Indebt
edness," could yon not suggest to our
immediate Repr?sentatives the propri
ety, tin*justice and the honesty of doing
something toward paying the honest and
bonn tide debts duo by Edgelhdd County
to its long suffering and impoverished
creditors-some of whom will have to
witness the .?ab- of their lands fir taxes,
in consequence of trusting tba 1'mancial
integrity of tho County ? We have al
ready bad two IR\ estimations by gentle
men who.se ability and honor an- beyond
question. Now, if there are any op
posed to thc payment of the amount re
ported under tho last investigation, let
us have the reason for it; if none be
givon, we can assume that tlmsuopposed
to its payment are "repudiators," and
wish their neighbors to bo defrauded of
their honest, debts. No ono wishos the
fraudulent debt to be paid. I ?lo not be
lieve tho peoplo desire thc County either
to repudiate or evjule its indisputable
?md well established indebted ess; but, il
this be so, how aro we to act as to debts
due from one ciiis?n to another? Above
all, what kind of morality is thus to be
And there is another matter, Messrs.
Editors, that I wish to call the a'.totition
of our Representatives to-of far greater
importance, ami nore lasting in its re
sults than any before the Legislature
It is what is commonly called lhe"Stoek"'
or impropi riv, "No Fence Law"-a law,
thu simple ciVevt/ ni whio t.. I.I?K?
each individual fence his pasture lands
enclose his stock-keep them from ?liva
ding and trespassing upon his neighbor's
land and crops.
It is altogether supei Huons to go over
the threadbare arguments in favor ol', or
lo stale objections to tho law here. 1
simply add ono reason for the passage of
such a law, not b.-reiolore given by its
advocates. It is this: Very many of our
"public highways," or "public roads,"
are twice as old as eur oldest inhabitants,
built when the people were but thinly sot
tied, with but few towns and villages as
objective places, and with but 1 i tl lo refcr
enco to avoidance of bills, bogs, or cross
ing ofs'.reams. Our condition ii? ontir ly
altered. Villages have sprung upover the
entire country, and our old roads, after
wearing out our wagons and carriages,
have become worn out themselves. At
present we need more public road-*,
.shorter and better one.?-thereby saving
money and time. Those wo will g- t
by the passage of the "Stock Law," with
but little inconvenience or injury to any
jne, and with the greatest benefit, not
Duly to the majority, but almost to the
whole people. This question is solved
by the conflict of our obi and new syr
tems; it is irrepressible, inevitable, and
the advocates of the chango must win
soon or late.
The progress, agriculturlly, and the
improvdd financial condition of the
people of those counties that shall adopt
Ibis "Stock Law," I am confident, will
finally force us, through pride, if not
through interest, to abandon the "fences
if our fathers," give up our old system,
ind adopt the new. And wc further
more bclievethat, if not equal to it will bc
dmost equivalent in its beneficial re
mits in building up tho County, to an
mtire exemption from our annual taxes
for many years to come I have yet to
icar of a singlo land owner who wishes
sr intends to deprive his tcnants.of pas
turage ol' their stock; lt is t mphatically a
poor man's law, without injury to any.

Our County indebtedness for the pas s
has given us much trouble, and is still
doing so, inasmuch as there were two
reports-majority and minority-from
the Committee appointed to look into the
matter. On account of a clorical error
in the minority report and a defect in
the Act of the last General Assembly, a
considerable portion of the funds due
creditors is locked up in the hands of
the County Commissioners. The dele
gation met and agreed to provide for the
minority report, a majority of them, and
introduced a bill to cover the minority
report. And yesterday afternoon, at the
suggestion of Gov. Bonham, I presented
the said bill. The bill which had been
referred to the Committee of Waj-s and
Means was withdrawn lrom the liles of
the House. But I fear tho passage of
any bill in reference to this vexed mat
ter will be endangered by the shortness
of our time. The present indications are
that we will stick to tho concurrent res

Hepatitis, or Liver Complaint,
DYsrersiA ANO SICK HEADACHE.
Symptoms of a Diseased Liver.
PAIN in thc right side, under thc
edge of the ribs, increases on pres
sure; sometimes the pain is in the left
side; thc patient is rarely able to lie
on the left side ; sometimes the pain is
felt under the shoulder bhtde, and it
frequently extends to the top of thc
shoulder, and is sometimes mistaken
for rheumatism in the arm. The
stomach is affected with loss of appe
tite and sickness; the bowels in gen
eral are costive, sometimes alternative
with lax; the head is troubled with
[iain, accompanied with a dull, heavy
sensation in the back part. T..ere is
generally a considerable loss of mem
ory, accompanied with a painful sen
sation of having left undone some
thing which ought to have been done.
A slight, dry cough is sometimes an
attendant. The patient complains of
weariness and debility; lie is easily
startled, his feet are cold or burning,
and he complains of a prickly sensa
tion of the skin; lu's spirits are low;
and although he is satisfied that exer
cise would be beneficial to him, yet
he can scarcely summon up fortitude
enough to try it. In fact, he distrusts
every remedy. Several of the above 1
symptoms attend the disease, but cases
have occurred where few of them ex
isted, yet examination of thc body,
liter death, has shown the LIVER to
dave been extensively deranged. 1
