NEWBERRY, S. C.
Wednesday Morning, October 3d, 1866.
The weather is remarkably fine for the
growing of turnips, potatoes and small grain.
We hear from some that the potato crop will
be fine, good news truly; while turnips are
We publish to,day for the benefit of our
readers and the many friends of Gen. A, C.
Garlington, the corrected speech of this
distinguished gentleman on the Stay Law,
together with his resolutions. The haste
with which it was at first printed caused
many errors to be overlooked, which
are now remedied, and this able speech will
therefore be re-read with much y+ieasure.
NEW DYE.-A dye of incomparable beauty
has by the merest accident been discovered,
and most fortunately in this town. Yankee
mixtures will hereafter be ut a discount.
This remarkable dye has been used with
success as can be proved by examining the
Brigadier's hirsute appendage. -The color
is almost indescribable, approaching very
nearly however a light crimson. For further
particulars apply to Peter or Son.
SALES-DAT-Like its predecsssors came
on Monday, and notwithstanding the threats
ening appearance of the weather a very large
number of people were cn hand, drawn to..
gether by the usual attractions of land sales,
furniture and other sales, the hope of heari
ing or seeing something . good, bad or in
different, and a few for the purpose of
spiritual refreshment. From limited observa
tion we believe that all parties were gratified,
but as our attention was almost wholly en"
grossed in keeping up with a few erratic in,
dividuals, who ought to have called on us,
and not with the general crowd, perhaps we
are in error. . Sales were- very spirited, bids
active, and judging from the signs, money
must be abundant; about 3000 acres, in
p.rcels, were sold at from $3 to $14 per acre.
Other sales were equally as good, and there
being no lack of buyers, all species of pro
perty offered were disposed of. About
1 o'clock, after business, the increase of
human sound gave token that the old vets
-and young recruits were charging,and loaded
to the muzzle, but other than making an
-undue noise, no harm was done to any but
themselves. Batteries Bourbon and Rye,
both strong fortifications were assaulted
fiercely from 10 a. m. to 5 p. in., but the
invincibility of the spirits which mnet these
.attacks were in every instance victorious.
A feb' weak shots were fired about sundo wn,
'when night put an end to the scene.
THE GOLD PREMIt.-rThe gold premium
has fallen to forty-three or four. When it
was at fif'ty,six and a half, a few weeks ago.
importers and brokers of New York urged
u pon the Treasury the policy of seiling the
surpIus, over $50.000,000, for the purpose of
fivoring importation. But gold has fallen
and imports increased by the demand abroad
for our Government securities, and the ims
portation of gold from Europe and large
supplies also from California.
At the present rate of importations, the
Treasury will, by the 1st of January next,
possess, $80,000,000 in gold, after deducting
all the sum required, in the meantime, for
the payment of interest on gold-bearing
bond3. $10,000,000 of the 25,000.000 to be
paid for interest will go to foreign bonda
-holders. The question is asked, whether the
~Secretary of the Treasury will suffer the
amount of gold to be augmented in the
Gover-nment vaults, in view of some plan for
a return by degrees to specie payments or
sell it at market rates ? His course, in this
respect, will undoubtedly be dictated by
Congress, and that body will tolerate no
measures looking towards a specie standard.
The Columbus (Ga.) Sun protests vigo,%
rously against being compelled to pay for
telegraph despatches from New%York City,
stating that the Herald had pronounced
President Johnson's plan a failure, and gone
over to the Torch,and-Turpenltino party. It
"We do not care what the NewsYork Her,
-ald thinks, or what it may please to publish,
nor do we regard it as a matter of the slight
'est interest or importance to our readers.
Because the Herald may be paid to change
its political opinions, and prophecy good
or evil to the side which has the heaviest
purse and makes the most liberal use of it,
is not reason sufficient that the press of the
country should have to pay contribution in
-order to receive the information."
There are foolish men enough at the South
who buy the Herald-which hounded the
South into war, deserted them when they
]had got in, and, now the war is over, labors
daily to keep the Southern States out of the
Union -to justify the sending of the item as
-a matter of news. The Associated Press
-agent cannot be blamed. When no Heralds
are taken at the Soath, the Associated Press
agent will never dream of sending such an
MURDER ON THE RACE TRACK -CHICA,
GO, September 24.-A trot between the
hbrses Genera! Butler and Cooley came off
on saturday, the race being the three best
heats in five, for $3,000. The first and
-second heats were won by Cooley, the third
and fourth by Batler, all after close strug
gles. Owing to delays caused by quarrel
ing between the jockeys, it became dark
before the fifth heat-was run, and the judges
could not see the horse. Bultler came in
without a driver, and on search he was found
on the track with his head split open. The
driver of Cooley was arrested on suspicion of
mnurdering him. The race was undecided.
The driver of Butler was also his owner.
SACRIFICE OF PRoPERTY--The following
facts are "straws," and we cannot assign to
them too much significance:
A gentleman who has just returned from
Carroll county, in Georgia, stated in the pres
ence of the editor of the LaGrange Reporter.
the other day, that a good lot of land exposed
to sale was sold for eighteen doIiars..
On sale day last, two hundred and eights'
acres of land lying in Goshen Distr'ict, El

twentystive dollars. A horse was also put

How TRUE .-The Louisville Courier says
"There is not a civilized nation on the fac
of the earth that would not joyfully accep1
the Southern States as a part of its domin'
ions, and grant them equal rights with then
own people, nor one that would not feel it~
strength and power doubled by the acquisi
tion. Their im]mense and fertile territory
the grand and wonderful heroism of theil
people, their astonishing capabilities foi
proding wealth, the fidelity of the p)eopl(
to their pledges, make not ooly the territory
but the people who inhabit it, valuable be

pose to erect the vast and valuale domair

reckless infatuation since the confusion o:
tongues at the tower of Babel ?"
RELIEF-The Rome Courier recommendt
that the law be enacted similar to one it
Kentucky, whereby all real estate levied 01
under execntion shall, previous to sale, b<
appraised-perhaps the price at which it wa
given in on the tax books of 1860 wouk
answer-and unless two-thirds of' this price
or more, shall be bid for the property at th4
sale-the creditors having the privlege 0:
taking it at that price, if he chooses-th<
sale shall be barred, and the property b<
freed from that execution and all others, it

say, three years. In Alabama, they have

LAURENS DISTRICT, 29th Sept. 1866.
Messrs. Editors: Perhaps no subject would in
terest a majority of your readers more, at the
present time, than that of a revival of religion.
I serd you a hastily-written sketch of the min
isters and meeting which closed yesterday, at
Fair View Church, Newlerry District. This
church has been supplied, since its organization,
about seven years, by the young and gifted W.
D. Mayfield, whose labors have been abundantly
blessed. He was assisted by the venerable Toli
ver Robertson, well known throughout the
Reedy River Association, and by a well'spent
life of over40 years in the ministry. His labora
have been abundantly blessed. We could not
listen to the preaching of this good man un
moved. His is the simple, earnest eloquence of a
mind and heart'filled with divine influences. He
displays no acquaintaZice with the subtleties of
philosophy, the polish of rhetoric and the gifts
of erudition ,but like the apostles Peter andJohn,
has an heroic faith and a love that constraineth~
to laborious duties in the Master's vineyard.
Elder J. K. Mendenhall, of your district, was
also present, during the meeting, and we hope
that he will pardon us for alluding to his sermot
on Trhursday evening, from the text found in
Hebrews, 2d chap., part of 3d v: "How shall
we escape if we neglect so grcat salvation." It
has been our good fortune to listen to some 01
the ablest divines in America, Thornwell,Bishol
Andrews and Wightmnan, Fuller, the Furmanm
and others, but we are not aware of ever hearing
a more powerful and masterly effort. Its publi
cation through your columns could not fail o;
The meeting closed Friday evening. A deep
solemnity pervaded the congregation. Eleven
were baptized, and others awaiting baptism. WC
were truly glad to hear that this church was ten
dered by its,pastor and members to the Luthe
ran brethren who contemplate commencing a
1nion meeting, on Saturday before the second
Sabbath in November next, and we understand
it is the intention of the Lutheran minister tc
cordially invite . all orthodox denominations tc
join in this meeting, and may God bless theli
labors. W. 0. Q.
A MOTTO FOR THE DOUGLAS MONUMENT.

appropriate motto to be placed upon it:

on the white basis by white men, for the
benefit of white men and their posterity
forever; and should be administered by white
men and none others. I do not believe thal

Stephon A. Douglas ever uttered, and they
ought, by all means, to be engraved in im

perpetuate his memory.
