Edgefield, S. C., April 7, 1881.
Senator Voorhees Beards Billy Mahone.
In the Senate . on JPriday last, Senator
- Toorhees, Democrat, of Indiana, took tb?
. floor and seat.toJhe^clerkV desk ?nd had
read an ?xtract from the Even?ig lele
graph, a Philadelphia Republican paper
vrh'cb alloded to Mahone as "a renegade
Democrat," and charging that his acting
with the Republicans was in consequence
of a disgraceful bargain. Hoar objected
to ita being read, and Voorhees stated that
he would endorse it and make it his speech.
Hereupon, Mahone and one or two of his
Republican allies ranted and became im
pudent, when Voorhees cut the mattel
"short by speakipg out thus ;
. " I endorse th? term . Renegade Demo
crat.' I endorse everything ehe that may
be construed to reflect on the course of the
deserter from Virginia, and without bi*
taking time to put the words upon me, he
can seek hi? redress. There is no use in
making.any mistake about this matter at
The Concealed Weapons Law.
We are delighted to say that the new
law seems to be working decidedly well
m EJgefield. Since the beginning of the
year, the few scrimmages we have had, on
public days, have he n entirely of the fist
and skull order. And no longer does the
convenient pistol-five or seven shooter,
aelf-cocking, nickel-plated or silver rn mut
ed-No. 3S or 46-io its deadly work
upon th? court bouse square. It matters
but little, as a general thing, how much
men batter np each other with thei fist6;
but for God's sake let us be done with the
fatal pistol I.
, Senator Hampton Vindicates South
Among all the speeches made in the U.
S. Senate daring the deadlock which has
lasted so long, and which still continue?]
that of Senator Hampton, on the 29th ul
timo, was one of the best and most forci
ble. It is thus described by the Washing
ton correspondent of the Columbia Reg
"General Hampton began very com
posedly, standing by the side of his desk
with his left hand in his pantaloons' pock
et. At first he did not use his carefully
prepared manuscript. But having to read
Malone's remarks alluding to the repudia
tion of the debt of the Southern States,
including South Carolina, he continued to
read to the conclusion, throwing the sheets
on the tloor first to one side and then to
the other.. He showed up very vigorously
Mahone's- ignorance of affairs in Sooth
Carolina, in which he waa aided by hie
colleague General Butler; who silenced
Hoar effectually by alluding to bis obtuse
ness in failing to comprehend a very plain
statement Leaving the debt of South
Carolina, which he showed was foisted on
her by carpet-bag adventurers, and no^re
fiudiated by her own people, he discussed
he matter of organizing the Senate. Al
luding to the Kellogg case and recent
events for illustration of differences be
tween the parties, he said Democrats had
been magnanimous in great mattera like a
Senatorsbip and in the formation o? the
committees while Republicans now insist
on turning ont at an executive session, by
the aid bf the Vice-President's vote, a few
officials who were Democrats. He took
ground strongly against the right of the
vice-President to sway the Senate in this
manner. It bad never been contemplated
that he should have this power. General
Hampton's language was sometimes se
vere, but entirely parliamentary. The
speech was quite effective, especially the
first part relating to South Carolina mat
ters. It was in the old style of oratory,
but was delivered with eminent propriety
of tone and manner and with hardly any
gestures. Dignified, it was not tame in
composition, but gracefully and happily
written. The Republicans were guilty of
the discourtesy of pretending not to heat
your Senator throughout. Hoar, Ingalle
and Dawes were notably busy reading
newspapers. General Butler's manner in
convicting Mr. Hoar of dullness was in
Our Railroad Becoming a Doubly Im
The Richmond and Danville Railroad
.'Company, which for a year or two past
have owned the C. C. & A. Railroad and
thc Columbia & Greenville Railroad, have
lately leased the Atlanta & Charlotte Air
Line Railroad. And upon thu subject the
Anderson journal speaks as follows:
"As'the matter now stands all the rail
. roads in Sonth Carolina are either owned
or controlled by thia -combination except
the South Carolina Railroad, the Charles
ton and Savannah Railroad and the Port
Royal and Augusta Railroad, and these
will either be absorbed or temporarily cut
off and made powerless by Col. Wadley's
Georgia ? Central combination. Thus it
may be that the Savannah Valley Railroad
project will soon loom up into greater im
portance than hitherto. In view of the
tact that the Tennessee and Kentucky sys
tem of railroads have in view an outlet to
the sea over the Blue Ridge mountains, it
now appears that they will encounter the
Virginia combination in every direction
save to connect with the Sooth Carolina
Railroad or the Port Royal Railroad by
way of Anderson and the Savannah Val
ley Railroad. It is plain that there is now
little chance for an independent short line
to have any influence in railroad matters,
. but it appears al present thal Ute Savan
nah Valley Railroad is the hey lo Oie sit
uation,/ur tushing a connecting Uni: where
by a power/til combination can reach the :
seaboard independent of tlie company that J
'now has so nearly the entire Slate in its |
clutches. We shah anxiously await the
developments of these giant swings, and
shall hope for .the better for the interests
of our country, feeling certain that our
people can give Anderson the most envia
? ole positon of any town in the State in
affording her competitive railroad lines by
completing the Savannah Valley Railroad,
thereby offering substantial inducements
for a through trunk line from tho West to
pass by oar doors.
Dr* Wharton Seeking to go Abroad.
The Eafaula (Ala.) correspondent of the
Atlanta Constitution thus writes of a dis
tinguished preacher who has been in Edge
field lately. Rev. Dr. M. B~ Wharton,
' whom your Washington correspondent
tells us is in Washington asking for the
^consolata" ot Baise, waa_fonnejjy^asJ;or of
the First Baptist C burch at Eufaula. He-j
is almost irresistible in his appeals, and if
he fails to got this office it will be his first
recorded ?ailur?. He is the man that got
the $50,000 out of Governor Browp for
the Baptist seminary at Louisville.
Doling his recent visit to Rome,
Ga., Captain M. L. bonham, Jr., made
each a favorable impression on his
Georgia friends that President Mal
lory, of the Shorter College, joined
.with the Presidents of the literary
flocieties of that institution in extend
ing to him an invitation to deliver
the annual address before the socie
ties on the 14th cf Jane next. It

to know that it will be impossible to

A Memorable Occasion in Newberry
. It was my good fortune to happen in
the embryo city of Newberry on the 20th
of March. In "the evening waa the scene
of .a pleasant occasion'for all lovers of
learning' and educational interests, and
such truly are the people of this enter
prising little city, as was certainly then
and there evinced. It is sn occasion of
yearly occurrence, yet one in which a live
ly interest is always manifested. It was
the 22hd Anniversary Celebration of the
Excelsior Literary Society of Newberry
College. ' The exercises were held at the
Pyrt?nenm, which was literally filled, and
a more orderly, attentive audience, I n<<ver
saw anywhere, which certainly speaks
well for the citizens of Newberry, and ao
less for the young men of the Society, and
the high esteem in. which they, and the
institution they represent, are held by the
giod people of the community.
The exercises began about 8 o'clock, and
for two hours we had a feast of letters.
The society occupied the front seat?, ex
cept the representatives who took scala on
the rostrum. Not to flitter, yet we must
say we were impressed , with the fine ap
pearance bi these young, men. The ros
trum was not gaudy, yet neatly decorated^
and in the centre, and 4 jit.'the top, were
suspended the badge, and the mottoes of
the societies cut iu letters covered with
evergreen. To mingle in such scenes
brings vividly to mind the not very long
past when the writer was an actis'e par
ticipant on these occasions, and we feel,
bays, aa if we should like to be with you
again, and oar heart and sympathies shall
ever- be with you on these occasions.
The exercises of the evening were opened
with prayer, after which the presiding of
ficer of the occasion, Mr. G. E. Werber of
Newberry, delivered, in a very ' appy and
pleasing style,- an introductory address
His remarks were well timed, and highly
adapted to the occasion, and were received
"With cheere by his auditors.
The essayist^ the evening, Mr. E. J.
Houseal of Newberry, was next introduc
ed and read a very excellent paper on
'The Fallacies of Youth." The paper was
very creditable to the yoang essayist. He
c mtrasted youth and age, and what a
grand thing it would be if each rising gen
eration would begin where the preceding
left off and profit by their experiences.
How rapid would be the strides upward
and onward, of earth's fallen races, if the
fallacies of youth could be avoided The
chief among which is self-esteem, or as
some one has expressed it, "vanity w the
only evil." One of the chief antidotes for
these evils is the printing press, which by
making ita educational influence high-ton
ed, and giving to the youths of the coun
try a pare literature, and by expunging
mach of the sensational trash of the day
from its columns, may do much to correct
many of the errors of youth.
The question, '"Is a Republican prefers,
able to a Monarchical form of government?
was next discussed, and was represented
in the affirmative by Mr J. R. Lea veil,
Jr. of Newberry. The yoong debater went
on to point out the ends of government
to be the promotion of the happiness and
prosperity of the governed. To insure
?berty, justice, peace, freedom of thought
and speech, of religion and of the press,
and by citing numerous examples, espe
cially that of oar own republic, went on
to show that a republican form of govern
ment best subserved these ends, and hence
js preferable. The Bpeech was well deliv .
ered, and Mr. Lovell bid? fair to be an*
The negative formed a representative in
Mr. W. J. Cherry,of Cheater. Mr. Cher
ry went on to substantiate his position
from the nature of the governments under
consideration, and from their practical op
erations. Government is a means to a
certain end, and admitting that end to be
the same as claimed by the aflirmative
proceeded to prove that a n:onarchy, used
ed in the sense of a limited monarchy,
best accomplished this end. Tho great
characteristic of. monarchy is power. To ?
much freedom is a dangeroua^prerogative.
Sectional strfe and bitterness must exist in
a republican form of government. A
monarchical form of government is more
lasting. By reference to numerous facts
in the history of republics the speaker
from analogy concluded that a monarchi
cal form of government is preferable. He
presented the government of England as
a prominent example in favor of his posi
tion. Mr. Cherry argues well, and I wish
I could give you a brief of the arguments
of both there young men. I shall not dis
criminate. Where both did so well, i?
would be invidious, so to do.
The orator of the evening, Mr. W. G
Houseal, of Newberry, was next introduc
ed, and entertained the audience in a most
instructive style on "The real object of
life." Mr. Houseal showed, in a most
vivid manner, the sad spectacle of the
majority of the human family subverting
tba tra? end of existence by worshiping
at the shrine of ambition, ur doing hom
age to the God of wealth. Man was cre
ated for a high and noble purpose ; not
only for a few brief years here, but for an
existence beyond, and he who lives with
a view to this higher life comes the near- ?
est meeting the highest, the noblest, pur
est ends of existence. His address at the
close to the members of the society was
The enjoyment of the evening is much
indebted to Mrs. Clark, for the most ele.
gant music discoursed by her on the piano,
before and after each address. It was an
occasion long to bo remembered, and most
pleasantly, by ali who were present. May
the College and her societies long continue

An employee of Mr. Warren S.
Wells was plowing one day last week,
and by some means ran his plow
against a stump. This threw the
horse backward upon the stump, and
cut a hole in the side of his stomach,
large enough to insert your two fists.
His entrails came out and had to be
sustained to keeD them from the
ground. Mr. Wells says . he then

was a surprise and shock to that com

recovery of the firm and ita return to

WE beg to announce to the good people of Edftefield that we have' accepted the
Agency (for this County) of the PALMETTO MUTUAL BENEFIT ASSO
CIATION, of Charleston, S. C. . This Association waa organized and chartered under
the laws of the State of South Carolina, is strictly benevolent in its aim and object,
secured beyond any contingency, and at LOWER RATES than hitherto oirered by
Underwriters of Life Insurance, or any of thc many orders and societies established
for the purpose of affording pecuniary relief when the father or brother, or support of
the family, is stricken down by death.
Simple ! Sale ! Permanent Y
Tho plans ol "THE PALMETTO MUTI;AL BENEFIT ASSOCIATION" are simple,
safe and permanent. The members pay only orie srrfall ante mortem assessment ata
time, which is held as a sacred trust to make the payment ol death claims sure. The
mortuary Assessments are calculated upon thu American Experience Tables, are strict
ly equitable, and nrovide purely mutual protection at actual cost. The amount of
assessment increases every year in accordance with the mortality ol' each particular
age, thus equalizing the burdens of the old and young, and providing ihatpermanen
cy which the plans of most other societies have failed to secure.
The mortuary assessments are deposited as they are collected with the "First
National Bank, of Charleston, S. C.." an.I constitute a sacred fund for the payment of
Death Claims only. The funds arising from these assessments cannot be loaned or
invested in securities of any kind, but must remain on deposit in bank, subject to
sight drafts for the payment of Death Claims.
Certilicates of Membership will be issued to all acceptable persons,
MALE OR FEMALE,
between thc ages of twenty (20) and fifty-five (55) years, for amounts pl one, twof
three, four, or live thousand dollars.
The money collected from members creates lico funds which are kept separatoand
distinct from each other. The one, Mc-f-iary Assessments, being EXCLUSIVELY
DEVOTED TO THE PAYMENT OF J BATH CLAIMS: and tho m her, Member
ship Ftes and Annual Dues, being appropriated to the PAYMENT OF ALL THE
EXPENSES of managing the Association.
A Board of Supervisors selected ?'rom the prominent citizens of diff?rent sections
of our State has been organized, who will attend the annual meetings of the directorr,
examine the receipts and disbursements of the mortuary fund, and certify to the cor
rectness of all annual statements ?nade by this Association. The Secretary of the
Association is under good and sufficient bond for the faithful deposit of ail assessments
collected from members. The Officers aro well and favorably - known in commercial
and insurance circles, and it is their d?termination that the business of this Associa
tion shall be judiciously managed, and tho interests of its members faithfully guarded.
We cordially commend this Association to the especial attention of the people of
Edge?eld. It is a good institution, and merits success.
