Wednesday, September 17, 18M'.
Cross Keys Township in Union
County, has been severely affected
with Meningitis and Bilious Fever.
Several deaths have occurred, and few
families have escaped sickness.
The last issue of the Anderson Con
servator contains the -viledictory of
Messrs. Brown & Haynie, who have
sold their interest to Messrs. Murray,
McGill & Langston. We wish those
who have just thrown off the respon
sibilities of journalistic life, as well as
the gentlemen now assuming them, all
The Cotton Crop.
The New York inancial Chroni
cle estimates the crop of 1872-73 at
3,930,508, against 2,970,000 of the
year before, while the growing crop it
is estimated will be nearly equal to the
last. The estimate as to the present
ciop is but an approximate surmise.
The fluctuations in the crop as shown
year by year are sufficient to set at
naught any nice calculation as to what
the crop will be.
We have received the first copy of
the Williamsburg Republican, pub
lished at Kingstree, S. C., by S. A.
Swails, editor, and M. J. Hirsch, as
sociate. It is a creditably printed and
edited sheet. It is strictly republican
ia polities, but its salutatory says,
"that its chief end and aim shall be to
work and -watch for the good of the
whole people of the State." There is
a chance for it to do a .yeoman's ser
vice and we hope for the best.
The Orphan's Friend.
We are pleased to call attention to
the card issued by the Rev. R. 0.
Oliver, Superintendent of the "Caro
lina Orphan Home," Spartanburg,
aSnouncing the publication on the 1st
>f October next, of a family paper, for
the double purpose of educating the
orphans of the Home in the Art of
P-rinting, as well as to add to the
usefulness and success of that institu
tion by the incon arising from the
paper. We cordially recommend the
The Transatlantic Balloon has prov
en to be a failure, the process of infla
tion showing it to be badly construct
ed, and the material not such as Prof.
.Wise expected it to be. The Profes -
sor is mortified and indignant, but is
still hopeful, that though this effort
has failed, he may yet successfully
make the trip. It is said 50,000 peo
ple. were assembled to witness its as
eension. -It contained 400,000 feet of
'gas,'and when it burst this immense
volume nearly suffocated those who
stood under its lea side.
*Twena-lBrst session of Roan
-.The exercises of the 21st-session of
lEoanoke College opened on the 3rd of
September, says the Roanoke Tunes,
under the most cncouraging auspices.
Thie number present is the largest ev
er known on the first day of the ses
sion. Already young gentleman are
in attendance from about fifteen States
and Territories, with the prospect of a
much larger representation. Every
trains brings new arrivals and confirms
the opinion that this will be the
.most prosperous session in the history
of the college.
We rejoice to record this gratifying
evidence of the widening influence of
this institution, which so well merits
a-liberal patronage. It deserves this
-all the more because its expenses have
been redueed to suit the times. The
small sum of $200 will pay the neces
sary expenses of a ten months' session.
We advise all young men to examine
its advantagages, as set forth in the
annual catalogue, which may be ob
tained on application to the president.
Sixth Annual Fair---Anderson.
We are indebted to' the efficient
Secretary and Treasurer of the Ander
son Farmers' and Mechanics' Associa
tion, Capt. Jas. A. Hoyt, for a copy
of the-Premium List of the Sixth An
nual Fair of this successful Society,
to be held on the 29th, 30th and 31si
of October next. We are pleased to
notice that in all the various depart.
mnents, viz: Field, Stock-embracing
eattle, sheep, horses, hogs, and poul
try-as well as those of the House
hold, Manufacturers', Fancy, Fine
-Art and Floral, the premiums are not
only valuable, but cover the whole
ground, and worthy of the Society, its
officers, and the citizens who foster it.
Judging by the premium list, and the
success attending former exhibitions,
the coming meeting promises well,
and our sister County and town has
our earnest wishes in so good a cause.
We cannot help here, once more ex
pressing surprise that in a community
so enlightened, so wealthly, so emi
nently agricultural as Newberry, that
no steps have yet been taken to revive
our Agricultural Society. Surely it
is not de-ad beyond every hope .of
,-aue.;tion. Wr- would be exceed
ingly loath to think so! and we -
ture the uggeICtion, that uo%w the
farming element of the County is be
ing rapidly taken up into Granges,
that the different -divisions agitate
the matter and reason about the im
portance of it. H .w profitable and
interesting an nual giJtering of all
the Granges would'be. Think of it.
What Will the Legislature Do?
With the deepest concern the tax
payer asks himself, what is to be done
about the bond question, which by re
cent decision, involves an additional
and heavy tax ? Provision was made
by the Lst Legislature for an exami
nation into the character of the bonds
and claims against the State, so as to
determine which were valid and which
not. That has not been done.
And now the people are called upon to
swallow the whole mass, and are at
the mercy of a ring, whose venality
and unscrupulousness knows no bounds.
Will the Legislature interpose in this
matter, and force the test whether
these claims are just or not ? It is
said, that for some such purpose the
Assembly is to be convened in extra
session. Our faith in the party, how
ever, is not strong enough to hope for
much, yet we do hope that something
will be done. An honest debt, though
grievous under existing circumstances,
is not objected to, but a fraudulent
one must be condemned.
The Popular Movement.
In spite of violent denunciations,
and untruthful assertion's, the farmers'
leagues or Granges are growing vast
in numbers, as well as .gaining in
popularity with those who were dis
posed to cry theni down. A very t
sho, time has sufficed for this. That I
the association was designed as a 2
political movement, and as such, de- i
nounced by.those who feared such a
r4sult, has been, it is believed, shown s
to the contrary. That such a large
and influential class of the voters of 1
the country will have. a voice, and a
strong one, in shaping the future, is f
not to be denied. It could iot be i
otherwise, and who but knaves would a
desire anything else. As a body they
will not take part in politics, but as
individuals, better informed through
association,theyw 'ill be able to control, 3
in a marked measure, if not cause a I
change to come over, the spirit of the
present ugly dream, which will inure to,
the public good and prosperity. The a
main objects of this important move
ment arc manifold and plainly apparent a
-unity of action among a class repre- i
senting so large a portion of society- B
protection against monopoly and fraud
-and a ready means of acquiring in- g
formation on all matters- tending to t~
advance their interests intellectually,
socially and pecuniarily, upon all of a
whieh hang the agricultural prosperity d
of the country. These are some of U
the points had in view. This union
is based upon broad and enlightened a
principles, and for progress, and the
results can~ hardly be measured. It
is plainly to be seen that there is a a
decline in this important branch of b
industry, for while the farmer digs and
sweats harder than ever before, the o
present system of labor is unremiunera- a
tive, and the consequence is that in a
mjority of cases, the agriculturist, j,
who should be independent and well si
to do, is only able to keep his head
above water. And why is this? ~
Simply because of want of unity, s
want of information as to what system 0
or plan is best to insure success, and
how to sell the products made to advan
tage, and avoid the trickery and frauds :
of moniied monopolists and speculators ~
abroad, who sit in luxurious ease, and a
by the bare exercise of sharp wits lay e
plans by which they can grow rich at
the expense of the farmer, who toils ~
with unremitting patience and un- a
tiring energy, but who all the while,
grows poorer. This the farmers *ord
the Granges are called upon to meet y
squarely, and it is their right to do so,
and their duty, not only to themselves
and their families, but to the whole i
country. Without successful agri- a
culture, every class of society suffers; t~
all are dependent upon the products ~
of the soil. There need be no conflict ,
of opinion, no reason to think that in
this association of the farming element
there is any desire or wish -to injure a
any other interest. The intention is not e
to build up one class on the downffll
of the other; not by any means. The
merchant for instance, is as necessary 14
to the farmer, as the farmer is to the f6
merchant; one cannot do without the
other, and it is the height of folly to 14
think otherwise. Yet there are those S
who think that the Granges meditate ~
opposition to them. It is an erroneous a
idea, no such thing is contemplated.
All that is desired is that the farmer ~
shall make the cheapest purchases he
can, and sell to the best advantage. ~
Just so is it with the merchant. Live ~
and let live, should be the principle. y
It is well to recognize this movement,
or this union, as a fixed and establish- I
ed fact, and all classes harmuonize to- c
gether without confliets or clashings.
In all that is for good, we believe the
Granges sympathize, and whatever
there is of bad, whether commercial, a
social, and it may be added political,r
they will be able to do a great and ~

leIuan, Gen. D. H1. Hill, now of Char

Mr. Moore, a young gentleman, very
iudly this morning gaveu, an opportu

Very! The New Era has thrown
flood of light upon the world in ma

FOR THE HERALD.
Ma. EDITOU:-I am disgusted in body,
tind and heart with tobacco, and every day
live this disgust is increased. This spitting
horrible! If men -will chew and smoke,
nd the women will dip, why do they not
vallow their saliva and tobacco juice, and
ot affBict evety decent person around by
riting, spitting, spitting. I now write in a
aurch where there are the longest and most
ple spittoons I ever saw. Out of curiosity
have just measured one, and its dimensions
re 34.) inches by eight. Regular horse
ughs. These are neatly made and painted
hite, but filthily stained and filled with dis
usting contents, and yet with a number of
ese extraordinary appendages of modern
vilization, the church is spattered, gormed,
ad defiled]. I a disgusted, sir; I repeat, I
n disgusted. Macb of this nasty work is
ne by the Preachers of the Gospel. Is it
at strange that good men, wise men, men
fparts, and men of influence should propa
ate a habit in society that nausentesdecency,
ad shocks all the refined sensibilities of our
ature. I was in a p)ulpit the other day, and
a each side within were filthy spittoons.
he sight and odor were offensive, and I at
mped to push them aside with my' foot,
at they were stationary, built in the pulpit
hen it was~ made, and, I presumed, had
ever been cleaned sine the church had
ee built. It does seem to me that a minis
r of Christ should be scrupulously nice,
keo his Master. Who can fancy Him chew
g tobacco and spitting! The very thought
abhorrent. The minister of the Gospel
ould in every respect be a pattern for the
ang, so that they may unhesitatingly fol
w without danger of mistake. B3ut -the
reachers of religion are doing more to
read this vile practice in society than any
ther class of men. A change ought to take
aco, and our ministers should free them
ilves from the pollutions of tobacco.
I have not one word to say to those outside
e church except the young. I am willing
>endure anything at their hands, but I
ust address the religious people. Is it not
shame for religious people to spend mon
r, squander time, vitiate their taste, defile
eir mouths, lower society in the scale of
finement, yield themselves slaves to a vile
abit, set such examples before the young.
ad by their piety and position fasten upon
ciety a practice which none can justify ?
he use of tobacco is a scandal upon the
ecencies of a Christian profession. Quit it,
e Christian chewers, smokers, and dippers,
nd contribute the avails to the charities of
t church. Her coffers now empty would
e filled at once, and many sad hearts be
tade to rejoice. Think of the thousands
ad tens of thousands of dollars offered at
t shrine of this indecent idol. Ye religious
eople of the various denominations, who
ear after yiar, let your ministers go unpaid.
ho spend from five to one hundred dollars
r the vile weed, where is your conscience?
ompare your love of the church, of her
tinistry, with youi love for th is vile weed,
ad answer the question, WVhere is your
I am astonished to hear it argued, that
tany good and even great men have and
ill use the weed. It this the best that can
e said for it. What indecency cannot 1he do
nded on this basis! A ease must be hard
m for defence, when the acknowledged
eaknesses of men have to be pleaded as the
est defecnce. Any vile practice may be
acouraged by this argument, as there have
en good, but weak, and faulty men im all
es, who have violated taste, propriety,
ud decency, to the shame of their profession,
nd shall these evils be perpetuated on socic
because good men practiced them. If the
oung are encouraged to practice the wrongs
f the good, they may become monsters in
Tobacco is wrong, and the young ought to
taught this truth. . It is a wrong against
elth, a wrong against propriety, a wrong
gainst the. resthetic part of our natare, a
rong against the financial interests of char
v, a wrong against the younger portion f
ciety, demoralizing them and tending'
iretly to extraxagance and profligacy. A
hew of tobacco, a segar, is a step to the
rst drink, and the first drink a step towards
rnkenness and infamy.
Ye young people, suffer a word of advice.
P these older people will chew and spit, and
moke and make chimneys of their noses,
nd dip and make their mouths vile, do you
:rain from a practice. which, it' ind ulged in,
o will regret as long as you live.
