SCHURZ ON THE PRESIDENCY.
Carl Schurz, says the Wilmington Star,
has been talking freely about the Repub
lican nominee for President. He is for
Sharman against the field. He will op
pose Grant if he is nominated. He would
not oppose Blaine,^ but he would not
support him. He is against any mas
who favors Grant. He did not once fan
cy Sherman, but he knows him better
now, and believes him to be the man to
squelch Gran?stn. Wo give the follow
ing bit of history as it appears in the
Washington letter to the Baltimore Sunl
it repr?senta Schurz assaying :
" When he and Evarts made it the ul
timptum of their remaining in the Cabi
net that Packard in Louisiana and Cham
berhtin in South Carolina should be al
lowed te go by the board, and that mili
tary interference in the local allai rs of
toe So th ern States should cease, ho
iSchurz) expected to encounter a bitter
-ostilitv from Sherman in the Cabinet
meetings, but to his astonishment he
found that Sherman agreed with him
fully. This gave a majority of the Cabi
net over to the peace and conciliation
Eolicy, and made it an easy matter to
ring over Messrs. Deveu.% Thompson
and McCrary, so as to have the Admin
istration act with unanimity. After the
downfall of Packard and Chamberlain,
Sherman continued as the strong sup
porter of all the President's conservative
measures. He never once flinched, and
when he followed np the Packard and
Chamberlain business with his fight j
air-dnst Conkling and the New York
Custom House ring, Secretary Schurz
says he concluded that here was the man
for the Republican emergency-the
emergency being the killing off of the
Grant 'Lxxun ' "
He does not know that Sherman will
be nominated, but he will prevent Grant
fr >m being the choice. The Grant mer,
ou the other hand, say that his declina
ture amounts to nothing. The Sun\t let
ter says :
"They say that Sherman's candidacy
only helps Grant, for the reason that the
more candidates there are with .some po
sitive strength themorecomplicated will
the opposition to Grant become, and the
result will inevitably be that Grant will
have to be taken as a last resort, just as
Hayes had to be taken at Cincinnati.
Schurz's threat that he will not support
Grant if nominated causes avery bitter
feeling among t^e General's friends, and
they swear vengeance should they be
thwarted in their purpose.''
If Sherman should kill off Grant Le
will do a good deed doubtless. But is
Sherman a much better man than Grant?
He has a very ugly record. Who will
kill off Sherman? He will do a goo.t
deed that should not die tongueless.
SENATOR VOORHEES ON THE
Senator Voorhees is for Hendricks for
President. He predicts the certain nom
ination of the favorite son of Indiana.
Ho says Ewing will be elected in Ohio.
He is of the opinion that John Sherman
will be the Republican nominee. He
says he knows that Grant does not desire
the nomination, and is not a candidate.
Of Gen. Hancock he has words of high
praise. He says :
"Hancock and David Davis would
make a powerful ticket The former
tan carry Pe nsylvania and the latter
Illinois. Judge Davis is a magnificent,
bruny man, and he is with us now heart
and soul on all the great questions af
fecting the country."'
CONK LING'S CHANCES FOR TUC
The well informed Now York corres
pondent of the Philadelphia Ledger
writes that the Conkling set are disturb
ed because Hayes and Sherman axe bulb
to be at the Indiana State Fair. They
want Conkling to enter tho Ohio canvass,
and thus increase bis capital stock. 'J he
fact of Grant's unwillingness to become
a candidate add to their embarrassment.
The correspondent says :
" As long as General Grant's candida
ture was a possibility, it seemed bardiy
worth an effort on the part of any one
else to place himself in competition with
it ; but now that there is no such possi
bility the conditions are materially
chanced. There is an inducement to go
to work now with some chance of suc
cess. If Sherman were out of the way.
Mr Conkling** friends believe he could
walk over the course."
A Parisjoorrespondeiit calls a'tention
to the fact, which American ladies seem
slow at comprehending, that to be iii thc
fashion now means to be distinctively
one's self in dress, and not as heretofore,
a copy of some one else. Tho change
makes it possible for all ladies to dress
becomingly, which was impossible un
der the old system.-New York Hcrattf.

For the Advertiser.
LET US AWAKETO THE SUBJECT
Editors of the Edgefield Advertiser :
As you are interested in the public
roads, and travel over them occasionally
in picnic season, perhaps you might like
to hear the condition they are in, which
I tell you isa very bad one. A reliable
gentleman who lives a few miles South
of Ninety-Six, said to me it would not
hurta buggy any worse to run it down the
steps of a house, than it would to run it
over some places in the roads. I have
also heard bad reports as to how the
roads have been worked in the Moun
tain Creek section of County. The Com
missioners ordered all overseers to warn
out their hands and put the public roads
in good fix, if it took the full number of
days required by law to work them.
Have the overseers obeyed the order as
to working the roads well ? No, not one
in ten ! The Commissioners ought to
make overseers know what it is to obey
orders, and overseers ought bo make
roa J hands know what orders really
mean. If overseers fail to obey orders,
the Commissioners ought to, without
fear, favor or affection, report them, and
have mern fined according lo law. And
just such Commissioners is what Edge
liold County ought to have. And then
we would begin to have better roads ;
and when Commissioners or any other
officers fail to do their duty, then it's the
people duty to turn them out, and put
new ones in their places. There is a
great complaint about not having picks
and shovels to work the roads with,
which I think is a just one. Why don't
the Commissioners furnish these; why
not levy a tax sufficient to get such tools?
Five or ten cents from each taxpayer in
the County, I think, would certainly
pay for them, and noliody would be
hurt. The most of the overseers and
hands, I think, have come to the cono-lli
ston that it does not matter much wheth
er they work the roads or not. If they
only walk over the road, brush it a little,
and flinir a little dirt in the worst places,
it's all right. What is the matter with
the people of Edgelield ; have they lost
all their public spirit and enterprise?
There is a song a great many overseers
and their hands have been singing for
th? last ten years. It runs pretty much
thus: The overseers, when they meet to
work in the spring say, " men, it's too
busy a time to do much to the road now;
we have too much plowing to do at
home; corn and cotton don't grow in the
big roads; but when we lay by our
crops, we'll meet again in August, and
then we will fix the roads all right."
And when they meet to give the road
that good August working, they have
another song to sing which is ''tuen, the
protracted meetings commence on Sat
urday, aud it will take a day or two to
fix for them, and when they are over, wo
will have fodder to pull, so we'll have to
give the road a light brushing over
again." And oh ! how heartily tho hands
sing this song, and clap theil hands for
joy, and say, "we've got mighty g> od
overseers ; what a parcel of clever fel
lows they are !" And the Commission
ers to whom we look to have tho road.s
worked, it seems, have been sitting un
der the sound of those sweet songs until
they have fallen into the same strain, all
agreeing and getting a long together
Our Democratic Commissioners de
serve credit for the economy they have
used in buildiug bridges and taking caie
of the people's monev; but what credit
they deserve for having the public high
ways worked, I leave for the people who
travel over the roads to judge.

TUE LAW FOB MURDERERS.
" Every departure from the good
Bible law of capital punishment has
been followed by a fearful increase in
the number of murders and of other
crimes," and in every State where
the death penalty has been abolished
there is a growing public sentiment
in favor of the re-enactment of the
law. There is no safety without it
and the p.isons are full of those
whose hands are red wi*h the blood
of their neighbor.-?. In Kentucky ''it
is urged that it would be better to
hang convict.0 than to imprison them
for life," and the Georgia legislature
are considering two very important
measures-to expedite the trial of
murderers and to repeal the "Alston
Law," which piovided that juries
should decide whether a murderer
should be confined in the penitentia
ry or hung. In all the other States
where a mistaken humanity has pro
vided for tho immunity of the priso
ner rather than the safety of society
there is a movement to make murder
and all the graver crimes punishable
by death. It may not be in accord
willi the raercilul tendencies of the
age but why redhanded assassins
should be treated with more consid
eration than their poor victims is a
question that has never been satisfac
torily answered. Of late years there
has been entirely too much tender
ness for criminals and these efforts to
rebuild the gallows are a step in the
right direction. The law has been
an insufficient protection for society
am1 through corrupt courts, half
hearted prosecutions and money-mak
ing executives murder ha', been made
a kind of inhuman pastime. If more
men were hung there would be less
necessity for lynch law and fewer
murderers. Capital punishment has
the highest possible endorsement-it
is right and proper and effective. No
other method has ever filled its place.
It is a sickly sentimentality that
would make the protection of thieves
and cut throats more sacred than the
purity and well being of society.
Is lt Possible
That a remedy made of such common,
simple plants aa Hops, Buchu, Mandrake,
Dandelion, ?fcc, make so many and such
marvelous and wonderful cures as Hop
Bitters do? It must be, for when old and
young, rich and poor, Pastor and Doe
tor, Lawyer and Editor, all testify to
having been cured by thom, we must
believe and doubt do longer. See other

THE BEST REMEDY
Diseases of Hie Throat M tigs,
B : Diseases
are so prevalcn?wd
fatal, that a safe ami
reliable remedy for
them is invaluablo
to every community.
PECTORAL is such a
remedy, and no
other so eminently
merits the confi
dence of the public.
It is a scientific com
bination of thc medi
cinal principles ami
curative virtues of
_ the finest drugs,
PECTORAL, chemically united,
to insure thc great
est possible efficiency and uniformity of re
sults, which enables physicians as well as
invalids to use it with confidence. It is
the most reliable remedy for diseases of
the throat and lungs that science has pro
duced. It strikes at the foundation of all
pulmonary diseases, affording prompt
and certain relief, and is adapted to pa
tients of any age or either sex. Being
very palatable, the youngest children
take it without difficulty. In tho treat
ment of ordinary Coughs, Colds, Sore
Throat, Bronchitis, Influenza, Cler
gy m au's Sore Th r o at, Asthma, Crou p,
and Catarrh, the effects of AYER'S
CHERRY PECTORAL are magical, and multi
tudes are annually preserved from serious
illness by its timely and faithful use. It
should be kept at hand in every house
hold, for the protection it affords in sud
den attacks. In Whooping-cough and
Consumption there is no other remedy
so efficacious, soothing, and helpful.
The marvellous cures which AYER'S
CHERRY PECTORAL has effected all over
the world are a sufficient guaranty that it
will continue to produce thc best resutfcs*- .J
An impartial trial will convince the most
sceptical of its wonderful curative powers,
as well as of its superiority over all other
preparations for pulmonary complaints.
Eminent physicians in all parts of the
country, knowing its composition, recom
mend AYER'S CHERRY PECTORAL to inva
lids, and prescribe it in their p-actice.
The test o? half a century has proved its
absolute certainty to cure all pulmonary
complaints not already beyond the reach
of human aid.
