Senator Voorhees Beards Billy Mahone.
In the Senate on..Friday last, Senator
- Voorhees, Democrat, of Indiana, took the |
floor and ?eut,foJhe^clerkV desk ?nd had
read an ?xtract from the Evening 2ele
graph, a Philadelphia Republican paper
wh?ch al!oded to Mahone as "a renegade
Democrat," and charging that his acting
"With the Republicana was in consequence
of a disgraceful bargain. .- Hoar objected
io its being read, and Voorhees stated that
he would endoree 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 matter
"short by speakipg out thus ;
- " I endoree the term ' Renegade Demo
crat.' I endorse everything ehe that may
be construed to refect on tn? course of the
deserter, from Virginia, and without bi*
taking time to put the words upon me, he
can seek his redress. There is ho use in
making any mistake about this matter a?,

We are delighted to say that the new

_ 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 tt
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 Heg
"General Hampton began very com
posedlv, standing by the side of his desk
with his left hard in his pantaloons' pock
et. At first he did not use his carefully
prepared manuscript. But having to read j
Mahone'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 sheet?
on the tl cor first to one side and then to
the other.. He showed up very vigorously
Aiahone's ignorance of affairs in South
Carolina, in which he was aided by hi?
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 not re
pudiated by ber own people, he discussed
the matter of organizing the Senate. Al
luding to the Kellogg case and recent
events for illustration of diff?rences be
tween the parties, be said Democrats bad
been magnanimous in great mattere like a
Senatorabip and in the formation of the
committees while Republicans now insist
on turning out at an executive session, by
tb? aid bf the Vice-President's vote, a few
officiais who were Democrats. He took
ground strongly against the right of the
Y ice-President to sway the Senate in this
manner. It bad never been contemplated
th;-1 he should have this power. Genera)
Hampton's language was sometimes se
vere, but entirely parliamentary. The
speech was quite effective, especially the j
fine 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 hear
your 8enator 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. <fe A. Kai I roa I and
the Columbia & Greenville Railroad, bave
lately leased the Atlanta & Charlotte Air
Line Railroad. And upon this subject the
Anderson journal speaks as follows:
"Aa the matter now stands ail the rai!
- roads in South Carolina are either owned
or controlled by this-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
' ott 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
fact 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 combiuation in every direction
save to connect with the Son th Carolina
P?silroad 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 mattere,
but it appears al present that the Savan
nah Valley Railroad, is the key to Oie sit
uation,/\irnishing a connecting Uni: where
by a powerj'ul combination can reach th
seaboard independent oj lite company that
nena has so nearly the entire Slate in its
clutches. We shall anxiously await the
developments of tSese 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 the West to
' pass by our doors. .

The Eufaula (Ala.) correspondent of the

is almost irresistible in his appeals, and if
he fails to get this office it will be his first

During his recent visit to Rome,
Ga., Captain M. L. Bonham, Jr., made
such a favorable impression on his
Georgia friends that President Mal

the annual address before the socie

A Memorable Occasion in Newberry
. It was my good fortune to happen in
the embjyo city of Newberry on the 20th
of March. In the evening was 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 un occasion o?
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
Pyrtaneam, which was literally filled, and
a more orderly, attentive audience, I never
saw anywhere, which certainly speaks
well for the citizens of Newberry, and no
less for the young men of the Society, and
the high esteem in. which they, and the
institution they represent, are held by the
g wi 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 seals, ex
cept the representatives who took seats on
the rostrum. Not to fl itter, yet we must
say we were impressed , with the fine ap
pearance ot these young, men. The ros
trum was not gaudy, yet neatly decor.itedf
and in the centre, and^at."the top, were
suspended the badge, and the mottoes of
the societies cut iu letters covered with
evergreen. To mingle in auch scenes
brings vividly to mind the not very long
past when the writer was an active par
ticipant on these occasions, and we feel,
boys, as if we should iike to be with you
again, and our 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 happy and
pleasing style, an introductory address
His remarks were well timed, and highly
adapted to the occasion, and were received
?frith cheers by his auditors.
The essayist'of 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 young essayist. He
contrasted youth and age, and what a
graDd thing it would be if each rising gen
oration would begin where the preceding
left off and profit by their experiences.
Mow 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
same one has expressed it, "vanity u the
only evil." One of the chief antidotes for
these evils is the printiug press, which by
making ita educational influence high-ton
ed, and-giving to the youths of the coun
try a pure literature, and by expunging
much of the sensational trash of the day
from its columna, may do much to correct
many of the errora of youth.
The question, "Is a Republican pr?f?ra,
able to a Monarchical form of government?
was next discussed, and was represented
in the affirmative by Mr J. R. Lea veli,
Jr. of Newberry. The young debater went
on to point out the ends of government
to be the promotion of the happiness and
prosperity of the governed. To insure
liberty, justice, peace, freedom of thought
and speech, of religion and of the press,
and by citing numerous examples, espe
cially that of our own republic, went on
to show that a republican. Sorta of govt rn
ment best subserved thc3e ends, and hence
?s preferable. The speech was well deliv
ered, and Hr. L-avell bidd fair to be CM
The negative formed a representative in
Mr. W. J. C herry, of Chester. Mr. C her
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 tho affirmative
proceeded to prove that a monarchy, U3e
ed in the sense of a limited monarchy,
best accomplished this end. The great
characteristic of monarchy is power. To
mach freedom is a dangerous^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 monarch i
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
f could give you a brief of the arguments
of both the?e young men. I shall not dis
criminate. Where both did w well, ij,
would be invidious so to do.
The cratoi 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
the true end of existence by worshiping
it the shrine of ambition, or doing horn
ige to the God of wealth. Man was ere
ited for a high and noble purpose ; not
>nly for a few brief years here, but for an
existence beyond, and he who lives with
i view to this higher life comes the near
?t meeting the highest, the noblest, pur
tat ends of existence. His address at the
:lose to the members of the society was
The enjoyment of the evening ia much

WE beg to announce to the good peoplo of Edprelield that we have" accepted the
Agency (for this County) of the PALMETTO MUTUAL BENEFIT ASSO
CIATION, of Charleston, S. C. This Association was organized and chartered under
the laws of the State of South Carolina, is stn'/' '. nevolent in its aim and obpct,
and from its . spicily growing popularity wh<- ' . educed, we feel assured that it
will fill a long telt want with our citizens for e pian of mutual protection for their
families, based upon equitable principles^ and u^on rates obtained from the most re
liable insurance tables of mortality, whereby SAFETY and PERMANENCY may|be
secured beyond any contingency, and at LOWER RATES than hitherto ottered by
Underwriters of Life Insurance, or any of tho many orders and socieiirs 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 ?
Thc plans ot "THE PALMETTO MUTUAL BENEFIT ASSOCIATION" aro simple,
safe and permanent. The members pay only one small ante morion assessment at a
timo, which ia held as a sacred trust to make the payment ot death claims sure. The
mortuary Assessments are calculated upon the American Experience Tables, are strict
ly equitable, and nrovide purely mutual protection ul 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 lhat permancn
cy which the plans of most other societies have failed to secure.
The mortuarv assessments are deposited as they are collected with the " First
National Bank, of Charleston, S. C.." an.l constitute a scored 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 remaiu on deposit in bank, subject to
sight drafts for the payment of Death Claims.
Certificates of Membership will bo issued to all acceptable persons,
IMI-AXJE O:R, FEMALE,
between thc ages of twenty (20) and fifty-five (55) years, for amounis ol cse, twor
three, four, or five thousand dollars.
The money collected from members creates tteo funds which are kept separato a?d
distinct from each other. The one, Mortuary Assessments, being EXCLUSIVELY
DEVOTED TO THE PAYMENT OF DEATH CLAIMS :^and the ol her, Member
ship Fees and Annual Dues, being appropriate-! to the PAYMENT Or' ALL THE
EXPENSES of managing the Association.
A Board of Supervisors selected from Ihc prominent citizens of different sections
of our Slate has been organized, who will attend the annual meetings of the director?,
examine the receipts and disbursements of the mortuary fund, and certify to the cor
rectness of all annual statements made by this Association. The Secretary of the
Association is under good and suilicient bond for the Liithful deposit of ail assessments
collected from members. The Officers are well and favorably . known in commercial
and insurance circles, and it is their determination that the business of this Associa
tion shad be judiciously managed, and thc interests of its members faithfully guarded
We cordially commend thia Association to the especial attention of the people of
Edgefielc*. It is a good institution, and merits success.
