S-rty and two days, (and how many

(begging the S. C. Republican's pardon),
and the end is not yet; it still sits in de
I ghtful leisure, waxing fat and sleek on
h e per diem. Will it Eit forever ? the
saints forbid. A proposition was made,
or resolution offered, last week, to ad
journ on the 25th, but it was tabled ; we
trust, however, that a ray of hope mity
be based upon that, and that this great
indefiniteness will some time come to a
close. The Republican objects to the
terms scalawags, &'c., as applied to this
body, by the "provincial" press so-called,
and lest we fall into odium also, we call
it a superlative blood-sucking party of
leeches or'vamnpires, feeding on the life
blood of the State and people they pro
fess to represent. That some good has
been done cannot be denie-d, and it would
be passing strange if it were not so, re

conservatism of others, who add a por.

There's the rub. One of the few good
things is,that on Wed-nesday last, eighty -

the act to-re-enact certain acts lending
the name and credit of the State to the
Greenville and Oolumbia Railroad Com
pany, and to validate the action of the
said company thereunder, the act having
previous&y passed the Senate. This was
right, and good for the road, and better
that it was done in the face of Goy.

' It always happens so.
Every time a Radical is asked to vote
for a negro he advises the negro to wait
-not to push his claims yet-that the
public mind is not- exactly ready.
That is to say, the Radicals accord
more WAIT to the negro's demand for
office, privilege, and place, than is some
times tasteful to Cuffee.
Cuffee is a man and a brother, no less
for all that-isn't he?
Some months ago, the State of Iowa
voted negro equality. Some weeks ago
in that same State, a negro juror was
regularly drawn, with other citizens;
and a Radical judge ordered him out of
the jury-box, saying, "The election was
a complimentary affair, not intended to
confer actual benefits, and it is presump
tuous for any negro to claim a place or
position white men only are fit to fill."
The negrojuror waits.
Menard, a negro, was elected to con
gress from Louisiana ; and the Radicals
maneuvered him out of his seat. He
has gone back home-to wait.
The Iowa Radical judge thinks Cuffee
ought to wait.
The Inauguration Committee are of
the same opinion.
Mernard got the same advice in Wash
And why not?
Waiting is a sweet privilege to the
negro ; and he appreciates it. He is
grateful for the advice. He loves his
Radical lords-licks the sweet Radical
hands that lash him-whines approving

him to vote for Radical officers-and
thanks the Radical for the glorious

MEssRs. EDITORS:-In mahing a brief
translation from a. French paper in regard
to- the visit of Mr. Davis to the School above
named, allow me first to say that the School
of St. Cyr, as the Polytechnic School, is un"
der the command of the Minister of War.
The first Military School established in
France, by Lewis XV., in 1731. was located
in a spacious, Mon.mental Building, erected
at the extremity of the Champ de Mars. (1)
Abolished in 1793, the Military School was
soon succeeded by that of the "Sons of
March." encamped in the field of Sablons,
which, however, lasted but a short time, In
1802, Napoleon the 1st, re-established the
Military School; this he established in the
left wing of the White Horse Yard, in the~
Palace of Fontainebleau. In 1808, he re'
moved it to the old Royal House of St. Cyr,
erected by Lewis XIV, and it is there that
the Military School stands to-day.
Every Frenchman from 18 to 21 years of
age, who passes the examination held every
year by the Minister of War, is admitted to
the School. When admitted, he contracts a
military engagement of seven years. At the
end of three years, the scholars are brought
before a board of examiners, and if accepted
are sent to different regiments as second
Lieutenants, but if rejected, are sent to other
regiments as privates. (2)
It is to this nursery,the glory and the hope
of Prance,. that Jefferson Davis paid a vi-it
on the 20th of January last. He was escort
ed by two officers of the old army of the
South, and by Mr. Slidell, who was the Re
presentative of the Confederate States dur,
ing the War of Secession. The French Gen
eral De Goudrecourt. Director of the Milita
ry School, received the distinguished visitors
with the most marked courtesy, and the
rvgiment of school boys being at the time
under arms, one of their number was placed
in commana, and the old Minister of the
United States the old- Director of West
Point, and the gentleman at last, who was
for more than four years the soul of one of
the greatest struggles recorded in hisrory,
exhibited an admiration which he did not
try to conceal, while witnessing the admira,
ble drilling of these youths, who are the
personification of the Military qualities of
When at rest, Mr. Davis spoke English
with a number of the younge men. He then
visited the study rooms, the amphitheatres,
the collection rooms, and the marble tables
on which are engraved, in letters of gold,
the names of all the scholars who have been
raised to the rank of generals. Thus ended
the visit of Mr. Davis, who left the School
perfectly satisfied with the proficiency ex
hibited. and with the sympathetic welcome
of t,e School boys of St. Cyr.
(1.) This spacious building retains but
one remembrance of what it was before 1789
and that iF a small room occupit-d by the
grt at Napoleon, when he was a scholar of
that Institution. -

say, :hat among the best and bravest gener.

.Mr EDYTUR-Dear Sir: Polka tells me
you are a mighty knowin' inan, and can tell
any body al! they want to know. Now,
there is somethin I want gou to do for me,
and you mustn't say I told you. The Scrip.
tur says, thar is a marryin and given in
marryin, here lately; egaitg some of the old
priofts, I believe it was Samon, in the book
of Sams, says the labror -i worthy of his
h ire. Now you see, I[want you to give these
tfellers sut. und row em up Sailt Lake City.
You are the man to do it..- A poor pas-on
has to ride a hard trottidi boss twenty ori
thirty milers a splashin through the mud,
and when be gits thar, his nose as red as'a
tu. ky gobler's snout, bis years fri: off, and
his eyes blowed out - by the cold winds, his
. bones t.huck till ther ready to fall together
in his skin. and, he stana Op and jines em
together, makes em both inter two for life,
a'id never as much as hears: heres your dol,.
lar. Aint it too bad. I reckon some folks
think as hcw a passoni eats his dinner offm
his old sarmins; now, I want you to just
tell cm what you think about it, in your pa
per. You see my darter and Sim Dodson Is
promised, and when you tell em about the
way some people do, I will give it to Jim to
read, and a,x.pim what he thinks, and if -he
is one of thein sort, I tell you he dont get
K tura Hobbs, and If he does get her and
don't pay the passon noth., she shan't live
with him a single minit, and he will find a
bifly divorce in the sheriff's office by sun up
next mornin, 'or my name alnt Kizy Hobbs.
.he shall leave his bed and board. But I
reckon a man what can't pay the passon
haint no bed, nothin but a board. My gran
ny was ninety-five years old when she died,
and she told me, after the Revolution war,
women was so scace in this country that
they brought ship loads of em from some
where else, and a man could buy a wife for
a bottle of rum, and a few pounds of to
backer. I thought that migh ty cheap for a
good wife, but law me, now, they aint worth
nothin. I think It is puttin a female woman
down mightily. I went to the Massisippi
once on a visit, way out i'n the Chickisaw
nation, and staid three months. When the
young folks thar take a notion to marry,
they have to wait till the circus rider comes
round, and that aint more'n twice a year,
when thar will be .half a dozen couples. to
marry, and you will see em a comini, some
with as meny chrekins s they can tote,
some with a pair of turkeys, another cloth
for breeches, sotne with a pile of socks, and
so on, but all to pay the passon. Well.
that was the best they could do-you see
that money was scace in theta days in LICK
SKILLET?, that was thle name of the lizt.e
town noti far off. ' hem peole thought
their wives was worth somnethin' and reckon
they was harder to get, a'nd not so willin to
miarry. as the galls th,esedays. I'hat is what
I tell Kitura. The galls ought to know who
to get, and he sure to marry a man that will
pay the passon. Now, Mr. Edytur, you just
give it.to em good; you are smart like, atd
kin say right sharp things sometimes, and I
haint got nothin to pay the printer, since as
how it has tuck all we can rake and scrape
to fix Kitura for hous4heepn; but Iaintsuie
she WILL keep house. '1 hat is what I[want
to find out through your paper If Jim
Doda.on dont pay.the passon, Kitura never
keeps house with him. If you will sendl the

GooD NUXBER.-The number of busi- i

of Newberry, from a recent survey taken a
by the local, is set down at eighty, this
includes all the various branches ; and r
may be considered a favorable ind,x of 0
prosperity. From a birds-eye view, ii
each-store or shop presents a map of
busy life, while content is marked upon ti
the face of the professional man,urerchant e
and artizan alike. So mote it be.
ONE OF THE BEST.-Sublime and prac- a

this appeal of the veteran at tLe foot of
