THE WEEA'KLY HERALD.
NEWBERRY, S. C.
Wednesday Moritng, December 6, 1865.
With a neat and appropriate heading, and on
clear white paper, the "Herald" is sent out to its
numerons readers this week, and its publishers
are proud to know that their efforts continously
rrade to gratify them during the past months
trae'been appreciated, and that the -present im
provement will meet with a smile of:npprobation.
Not a few have been the drawbacks experienced,
but sustained by the wise discrimination of the
majority, in a largely increased subscription, and
a wholesome advertis'mg patronage, they have
been enabled to overcome many things neither
profitable or pleasant. To those who have sus
tained them by kind words and substantial re
Membrances they are most gratefully indebted.
But all is not yet done, to stop here will not do,
th2y must go on, and to do so the sheulder of
every good man,and woman too, is needed to the
,xbeel. The mnchinery now so nicely working
m,ustbe kept in 'grease' or it will clog and rust.
All the material now used, costs from three to
four times as much as in former times, [and
tLa4 with the Id.or necessary in publishing
a paper,has to be paid for as soon as rcceived or
done. Under these circumstances is it not rea
sonable that cash i: advance should be -required.
It cannot be otherwise, and no one with a show
of reason will ob ject to it. 'The paper. cannot
live on promises to pay ; something more sub
-stantial is needed. That there are only a few,
Iowever, who exrect a miracle in these modern
times is a pleasant fact, namely, that paper can
be had for a song, and that labor can wait, or
that printers live on air ; it is hoped that they
mill no longer harbor such a preposterous idea.
A l"rge number of subscriber's have paid up to
December and t.heir time having expired they
will please renew at once, that such valuable
names may be retained on the "good books" of
A Christmas Treat.
December 21st, six months from the date of
the Herald's first issue, will end the term of many
of our subscriber's, and they will be glad of this
reminder that they may come forward, or send
on and renew. A most happy and opportune
time-the Christmas ho'iday's-and every one
who renews wilt be petmitted to imagine that he
or she is giving us a Christmas present. Happy
ide?a; look to it friends and readers; send, in
youxr Christmas present in greenback or apecie
wec are not particular which, and secure in re
:zu a paper cheap, handsome, readable for your
res, your wives and your children; and if
can, without inconvenience to yourselves,
your neighbor to club in with you, two are
~er than one, inasmuch as the trouble of ma
change will be avoided. And then the
'e the merrier for ns, the better will be the
.p?r, and the happier the Christmas for you.
It will not be amiss to look out for that little,
o d, ugly cross mark too, which will now be seen.
Somie object to it, but really friends there is no
barm meant by it, and it will not come to you
but one time if you so- w:ill it.

Mr. Seward's Auburn Speech.
The following passage occurs in Mr. Seward
late Auburn Speech :
"The influence of the United States on the in
ternational co:nidut of-foreign States, particular
lv on the American continenit," would, he to]<
his hearers, 1-hough impaired by the civil war.
be now reuewcd," and "he expected to see re
publican institutions, wherever heretofore es
tablisbed throughout the American continent
speedily vindicated, renewed arid invigorated.
The London Morning Post of the 4th ult., i;
reviewing the speech, says:
One can hardly suppose that a Cabinet Minit
ter, even in America, would give utterance t,
what certainly sounds very like ttireats, if hi
Government had no intention of carrying th3s
threats into execution ; and when Mr. Sewari
declares that he expects to see a republic wher,
an empire now exists, people are justified ii
thinking that those with whose intentions h
must be presumed to be acquainted have resul
ved on endeavoring to effect that change.
American Ministers are so frequently betraye
into "bunkum, ' that we would willingly believ
that in the present itistane Mr. Seward had ir
other object in view than that of gratifying hi
audience by expressing sentiments which the:
would be sure to relish. But the Mexican queE
tion is one, of all others, which ought only to bi
touched serionsly. The present is certainly no
4he occasioi which the Government at Washing
ton would select for embarking in another war
and, whatever may be their designs, it is likel,
that the time for putting them into executioi
has not been determined upon. - A distant poli
cy must, however, be to a great extent depen
ienton the course of events, and we may b,
pei iit ted to hope that, ere the subversion of tht
Mexi(,2n empire is resolved upon, the Americai
people may be brought to regard in a differen
light the exclusive doctrine of President Monroe
IkESTORATIN.-The Washington corresponden
of the New York World, says that a bill has beer
drawn up in Washington, for presentation t
Congress on the first day of the session, propos
ing a new scheme of restoration. It provide
for t6e appointment by the President of a Gov
ernor for each State lately in rebellion. Th
Governor so appointed is to have the power o
the appointment of all executive and judicial of
ficers within the State, according to the laws o
the State in force at the time of his entering int<
office, excent such laws or enactments as ma:
have been passed by a Legislature recognizing
and co-operating with, the so-called Confederatt
Government after the passage of the ordinanc<
of secession in such State. The Governor is fur
ther authorized to organize courts in accordanc(
with the said laws of the State. All of his procla
mations are to have the same force as the lags
He is to open a registry, where all qualified vo

who are to prepare a constitution, on which Con

The World is not a Radical journal, but, or
the contrary, supports the President's policy o
reconstruction. If the above report of its car
respondent be true, then, indeed, will the South
en States be re duced to the condition of mleri
territories. The Southern States (South Carolim
being among the .foremost) have accepted tbh
conditions indicated by President Johnson ai
ncessary to their restoration, and we hope, there
fore, that the above programme does not receiv<
the sanction of his administration, but is mere]'

SAD AcCIwEN.-The many friends of Rev
W. A. McSw&I, will be pained to learn that, or
last Sabbath, while going to his church appoint
ment, in the lower part of the District, he ha<
the misportune of getting his leg broken. I
seems that a horse, in a vehickle behind him, be
came unruly and was about to get tangled in Mr
McSWAIx's~buggy, when he tho" :ht it safest fo
himself to jump from his buggy, by which botl
bones of his left leg were badly broken abovy
the ankle. This is the second time an acciden
has caused him to have a leg broken. Hie wa
brought to his home in the Village on Monda;
last, with the prospect of a long, tedious an<
painful confinement from this accident. His con
gregations, on the circuit, will feel his absence
and will sy mpathise with him in his suffering ani
misfortune. Nor will they be alone in this, a
many outside of his denomination love and ad
mire this distinguished and eminent divine, ih
and out- of the pulpit, and among the-n we clair
to blend -our sympathies.

We learn from tile New York Herald, of th<
27th, that the reported participation of Ameri
can soldiers in the recent assault on Matamoro
by the Mexican Republicans has, it seems, prc
duced a very disagreeable effect upon the In
perialists, and they are said to fear that our Gos
ernent seriously meditates interfering in be
half of president Juarez. Even the abandon
ment of Maximilian's journey to Yucatan is as
cribed to apprehensions on the part of his Cabi
net of difficulty with the United States, and it i
stated that Marshal Bazaine has ordered severr
important positions to be strengthened. Mex
miliani is said to have lately received an autc
graph letter from Louis Napoleon, urging him t
more energetic measures t.oward the firm estat
lishment of the empire.

On Monday last, Sale Day, an unusual number
of citizens were present. The streets were filled
with visitors, merchants..and darkies. Cotton
wagons and wagons with goods, wares and mer
chandize rolled through the town and blocked
the "gangway." Auctioneers were busy with
divers sales, and up to their ears in furniture and
feather beds, etc. Notwithstanding the threat
ening aspect of the weather some of the fairer
,)ortion of humanity graced the occasion, and
- completed the picture.
BURGLARIous.-An attempt was made on Sat
urday night last to enter the work shop of Mr.
Z. L. White, for the purpose no doubt of getting
possessoin of some of his firearms, but the hopeful
expectations of the rascal were rudely, to him,
disappointed. Flanders a boy working for Mr.
White, faithful and vigilant. and sleeping on the
premises, hearing a suspicious noise, armed him
self, went outside, and discovered the Aillian,
who started to run, at which Flanders fired, and
it is supposed hit the mark; ordering a halt, or
he would fire again, the pursued stopped. Flan
ders then we are told inflicted upon his person
a most inerized and terrible licking, after which
he allowed him to hobble off.
ADvICE GaAris.-Any one at all familiar with
the old saws of "taking pigs to a bad market,"
or "getting hold of a sow by the wrong ear,"
and the inconvenience attending, will appreciate
our fix in endeavoring to poke a crooked stick
do-vn a straight man's back, in other words at
tempting to joka a man with a disordered liver.
It happened to us the other day, the effects of
which are still felt. in a spirit of pure christian
philanthrophy we advise the man given to fun,to
be careful in ascertaining whether the object he
is poking it at be in a condition to receive it, that
Sis if his liver is in good working order; otherwise
for he will certainly be stung. We are a living,
unfortunate example, scorched, withered, dried

IVASHINGTON, November 27, 1865.
To E. F Perrl, Provisional Gorernor :
I do not think it necessary for the mem
bers-elect, for South Carolina, to be present
at the organization of Congress. On the con
trary, it will be better policy to present their
certificates of election after the two houses
are organized, which will then be a simple
question, under the Constitution, of the mem
bers taking their seats. Each house must
judge, for itself, the election returns and
qualification of its own members. As to wiat
the two houses will do, in reference to tho
oath, now required to be taken, before the
members can take thelr seats, is trnknown to
me ; and I do not like to predict. But, upon
the whole, I am of opinion that it would be
better for the question to come up and be
disposed of after the two houses have been
organized. I hope that your Legislature will
adopt a code in reference to free persons of
color that will be acceptable to the country,
at the same time doing justice to the white
and colored population.

I noticed were fine calicoes at 30 ets., plaids with
