The Central Executive Committee con
gratulate the citizens of this District on
the recent elecis. We have utterly
failed to carry them: but we have proved
tbattbe white men are united, and that
many of the colored men 'have recog
L nized and discharged their duty. Twenty
r eight hundred and fifty-nine votes were
cast. Of theseeight hundred and nineteen
were Democratic. One hundred of these
votes were cast by colored men. Only
1 fi(teen white men voted the Radical
- ticket! And not one of them of any so
I cial or political -positior- Nearly half of
t the white men of the District, did not
vote at all. We have not shown our
strength. But we will!
The Central Executive Committee
recommeiid that every man wi.o can at
all afford it shall introduce foreigners to
cultivate our soil, the dispo,ition of the
m11;1j1rity of our laborers being such as to
warrant only ruin to the planting interest
of the country.

mend all those men-of whatever race or
class-who have not voted the Radical
ticket: 'nd they suggest thit all good
and true men stand by them, and see
that they receive the due rewards of jus
tice and honesty. All men of eighteen
years of age who have not voted the
Radical ticket, are considered Democrats,
and will be respected accordingly.
It is recommended that the vice-presi

Duinoc;ats in their respective Beats and

Meeting for the Settlement of the Debt Ques
An extreme!y large meeting was held
in Edgefield, says the Advertiser, Mon
day the 13th. An earnest and intent
spirit prevailed and the report submitted
by the committee, met with emphatic
apjproval. Gov. Pickens, being called to
the Chair, and J. I1. Miums, appointed
Secretary, the report was read, tbe prin
cipal features of which we. lay before our
readers. The report goes on to say there
is nojust reason why thse who held
notes and bonds for money, should not
loso any thing f-rm the face of the nkotes
or bonds, and that the whole amount,
interest and all, should be paid up, by
forced sales, dollar for dollar, while those
wvho owned land and niegroes should be
entirely sacrificed b)y a w2r, in which all
Jengaged alike, and for the consequences
of which all should suffei- equally. L:and
has been reduced in value to ahnost ntI.
izig w'hen forced to be sold in order to
pay money, bonds, notes and miortgages.
Trhe-labor that~made them valuab,le has
been aboh.shed, while m.,st of our taxes
are raised upon land, andl note and bond
holders are comparatively but lighitly
taxed. Now we tnink it but proper and
right that a -community thtus situated
ought, as just and patriotic men, to come
to somte fair and equitable compromise
by whichbthesettlemenmt of debts should
be made. As neighbors, as fellow-citi
zens raisei up together in all the walks
of life, we owe it to ourselves, to justice,
to honor, after our terrible calamities, to
make a fair and friendly adjustment of
all ouar debts, anid thus set an example to
our ruined~ and disheartened State, so
thycnsee that the District that was
its first to leap off in, the war, as a band
of brothers, was the first to show that
we are still a band of brothers, and that -
brave men are always just and magnani
We would therefore respectfully recomn
mend .to the people of Edgetield Distnict,
that all notes, bonds, mortgages or debts
now held, involving any consideration,
or based upon any obligations incurred
during the recent war, from first Jan.
1861 to the first of May 1865, shall be
adjusted a'nd settled upon the basis .of a,
gold standard at the date of the contract
or obligation, and then placed upon an
eqnal footing with debts before the war.
We further recommend that all notes,
bonds, or monied obligations of any kind
made or executed prior to 1st January
1881, with interest, shall be reduced to
twenty-five cents on the dollar, and paid
We earnestly urge the general basis
of settlement to be made by ail our neigh
hors and fellow-citizens, and whenever
it is not agreed to, then we reconnnend
that it be submnitted to an arbitratiojn of
three or four men as the parties may
agree upon, and the whole matter re
ferred to these for full amnd final settle
mnt. This would relieve us all from
the heavy ec penses of litigation in our
Jvurt,a and before mind juries, comn
Iposed in part of our former slaves. It is
well known that the expense of litigation,
under the general distressed condition of~
our enuntry, will consume in most cases
two thirds of the debt recovered, and if
land be forced to pay it that the sale of
lan1d now will not pay the other third.
As to settlement of debts due by. Guar
dians to wards, or by Administrators
an~d Executors to widows and minors,
we would respectfully recommend that'
all such be made upon the same basis.
except that an arbitration be made by
thirteen good citezens chosen by the
parties alternately, and that thef'r settle
mhent be presented to the Court, on pe
tition, praying that the Judge or Chan
cellor shall confirm the samne.

"However blatantly members of Con

enough to keep negro delegates out of

Seven Stars Saw.
We have been jonrncying through the
114arens a long time, and we have seen
mlany strange things since we-first sang to
gether the matin song 6f Adam's world.
We were then looking out, as we now are,
with our seven orbs, upon the vast expanse
of worlds, having amongst us the great
centre of alL * Saw earth's beginning,
"when it was without form and void, and
darkness wai upon the face of the deep "
We beheld %ith jo) the first ray of light
that illumined its surface, and followed with
wonder and admiration the Great Architect
in the progress of' his work, till he made
man in his own image and "put every living
thing that moveth upon the earth" under
his dominion. We saw his fair "help-meet"
walking bsy his side in- the garden of Eden;
we saw them, by their disobedience, fall,
and in soirow and sadness leave forever
the Paradise which had been prepared for
their blessed abode
We saw Adam's generations multiply atd
fill the earth until their wickedness cried up
to heaven: saw Noah building his ark on
the plains of Judah, I-reparing for the floods
of waters shich afterwards deluged the
earth, and floated the ark to the summit of
the mountains of Ararat : saw the wind:>we
of the ark opened, and the dove go forth
and return with the olive leaf in her mouth:
we saw Noah and his family, and the living
things that were with him, come forth out
of the ark, rejoicing and giving glory to
God: saw "the bow set in tho clouds" as a
token of the Cov.nuit made with earth:
and we have followed Noah and his de.
scendents ini all the changes of hiAory from
that day down to the present time. We
are now looking out of the windows of our
bright homes, watching day 6i night, the
inhabitants of earth and other worlds;
studying their chaiacter and habits, their
strange conduet and actions-all that makes
up their life and history. Nothing escapes
us. We know even the th&ughts of men.
We keep a record of what is doi: g in the
earth. As it revolves on its axis we have
the opportunity to bee every part of it once
in twenty-four hours ; thus all nations
every people,-of every land and clime, pass
in review befre us every day.
Lately we have taken peculiar interest in
the affairs of that part of earth known as
the American Continent, and designated
more particularly "the United States." Our
eyes have been turned especially -to South
Carolina, and we have been watchiig clo.-ely
the course of events in that little spot. We
propose to dispatch the result of some of
our observations in that quarter, -by the
clestial tele-graph line which ,has lately
been established between us. and that orb,
by the way of the moon, with whose people
we are also in communication, and from
whioni we often der ive important informna.

are several hundred niillions of miles nearer
the latter p'ace than we are, and hence have
better opportunities of observation as to
what is.going on there than we have. We
will preparec these artie!es for publication in
some one of your terrestial g zette.eqs they
will be devoted in the m,ain to pu'blicat
ters. Eut nec shall sk ocasien now and
then to shew up individisals~ not _by nanes
for iwe do nlot knoJw the namies of your peo
ple, but bi- a description of their persons,
so that their features will be readily recog
nized. So look out down there ! You
have been seen when you little dreamed
th.tt you were secen, and some of you have
been doing thinigs uhich- you-will be most
heartily ashamed of when they .have 'been
brought to light. You ,have been cutting
strange capers .of late, and we intend to.ex
pose you to your neighbors and the world.
We will tell y'ou some mean things which
you have been guilty of, and for whleh in
this bright place you would be put to death
in a manner which we may hereafter de
seribe.to you, for in this country we do
things very differently from what yon. are
accustomied to do in yours. We have a df
ferent sort of people-dfferenit laws and
customs, and so with most of the world's
which you see in this direction. There is
however, in our neighborhood, a star whose
inhabitants resemble yours very wnhchu in
appearance and conduct. Froui earth you
cannot see this star, and hence it is not to
be found on any of your astronomnical maps.
It is in the direction, and supposed to be
utnder the influence, of Stazus. There is at
this tinie great confusion amongst t.he peo
pIe who live on that planet. They, like you,
have been at war, and although it is now
ended they caninot come to terms of peace.
Hatred and envy, sin and iniquity abound,
and pollute the land to such an extent, that
we have just heard that preparations are
about being wade to .destroy it. with all its
people by fire. Be on the. look out-you
may see the light of this conflagration in a
few days. Before we proceed to give you
glimpses of your part of the Universe we
wish to give you an account of what has
lately taken place in that, to you, obscured
planet. It may do your people good by way
of exqmple. *

SPRING.-IIail propitiosS season!1 yes
we believe we can with safety say that
this delight ful, long looked for, ardently
desired, arnd fre'quently predicted as
come, (when it had not,) season, is now
abot to arrive. It comes under a cloud,
preluded by a deluge or rather deluges of
rain, with thunder, lightning and wind,
enough to satisfy the most disagreeable,
contrary -and careless clerk of the weather
that ever existed. It's been coming for
a month of Sundays, so said. We are
forced to confess though that the pros
pect is extremely fishy, for we are sttll
in the wet, and ur.der the peculiar circum
stances cannot help asking some of the
rhapsodical, fanciful, romancers, who do
th'e "locals" of certain 'country' weeklies,
if they are aware of the mischief done in
so often singing of the ap proach of Spring,
before it dreams of coming. The first
warm sunshiny day in January and
their pipes are tuned to the song of
Spring! From that time, till the middle
or thereabouts of April, they continue to
harp on this one string, notwithstand
ing that a dozen times or more their
very souls freeze under the frequent
biting spells. Its high time that the
practice be stopped. There is a point at
which "natur" rebels, we have arrived
there, an ii4ehalf of unwary sufferers,
who believe in this thing, and are caught
in the deluion, a protest is entered.r
Suppose the Sun does shine a little
warmly, the breeze feel balmy, or a 'lo
cal," under the happy influence of a
walk with ten or a dozen yar-ds of spott
ted magin, discovers a little flower of<
untimely birth, is that sufficient reason
that his readers be informed that Spring
has come ? It has to be stopped, and
the sooner the better. What is the con- t
sequences? Old farmers who think they
cannot be caught with chaff, put cotton
seed and corn in the ground. whicht
never again see the light of day ; fruit I,
trees put out their bloom only to be I
ipped by a frost; amateur gardeners
plough, spade and sow; and reap not of 5
their labor ; hens, heretofore sensible,
are wrought to the belief that the time '
for setting has come, while their lovely
"missusses" indulging in the anticipated ~
delight of killing "fried spring chickens,"
sot em ; what then, well some few eggs
batch, but alas the miserable little chicks 1
emorge into a chilling world, and never
rrive to the desirable fryable period; y
tender hoeted rnaidens nut nn their last 1:
lumfner's muslin, and get colds and sore
broats for their pains; and so on through
:he whole catalogue. Stop it, ) locals,
ill the time, the set time comes when
napleleaves arethe size of a silver dol
ar,eaiithe martins show themselves,
tnd the frosts are over, then unbutton
rour vests, take inspiration from all na
ure and'spout; for it will do no harm.
rhink how absurd it is to read a Spring
ocal, when just returned from mud ankle
leep, and the thermometer at a freezing
point. Be careful.
TnuF. PoLITENESS.-Politeness is a
summal V of all the moral virtues ; it -is
in assemblage of discretion, civility, and
:ircumspection to render to every one
the duty he has a right to expect, and to
idorn all our words and actions with
grace and affability. It is the offpring
of a well-directed mind, possessing itself,
ind being master of its own sentiments ;
that loves to do justice to every one, and
to sacrifice its own interest rather than
to injure that of others : that disregards
the clawor of vulgar opinion, and re
,uires not an explanation upon every
trifling or equivocal expression.
A FASHIONARLE BosNET.-The follow
ing design for a bonnet, such as will
echpse anything in this line ever seen
)r contemplated, is suggested, not with
a view to injure the trade, as our milin
-ry establishaents are now filled with
the latest and loveliest, but that we
may be gratefully pointed out as having
riginated the latest gem, and receive
the smiles and blessings of the ladies.
[low to make it
"Take a medium sized pumpkin-seed,
enrefully cut out the meat on the under
zide, put a narrow strip of fur around
the edge, and fasten strings to the sides,
and they will have a bonnet inl the pink
of the fashion. The broad end of the
bonnet should be worn in front to leep
Dff the sun an-d win"
L:Nr OF PHAYEnS.-The sufject on
the lerigth of prayers is occupying the
tten1tion of some of our exchanges. A
correspondent of the Congregationalist
and Recorder approves of the opinion of
aiother, that a prayer in the pulpit
sbould never occupl over eight minutes;
"The Lord's t)rayer occupies about
Half a minute. Our Saviour's prayer for
his disciples. in which he seems to poor
out his whole heart of love in their be
hIlf, is about four and a half min1uter
long ; Daniel's remarkable prayer, chap)
ter ix., three minutes ; Ezra's, chapter
ix., two minutes ; .Nehemiah's, chapte.r
ix., five and a half minutes , Solomon's,
at the dedication of the temple, five
minutes ; David's'great prayer of con
fession, Psalm ii., three minutes ; the
apostle's prayer, on the important occa
donn of fillung the vacancy occasioned by
the defection of Judas. is about twenty
seconds long. I think that in one of the
Psalms is the. form of praying-direct
address to God, kept up f:r a longer time
thin five or six minutes."
The writer also says that he has heard
a prayer, dedicatory of a very small
meeting h:ouse; more than seven times as
14, Ua.& of King Solomon's at the
dedieation of the T1emnple at Jerusalein.
SUx Huoss T.'cIs.-ShortMelow *is a
sensible fellow, and shiows such thorough
knowledge of horse flesh that we give
his views a local place, for the benefit of
young horse fanciers:
Yure views ar correkt, thare iz no tel
