The formation of a National Sports

o great importance is attached to the

A Water Spout.
The strange phenomenon of a large
water spout is described as being seen
one day last week at Langley, S. C.
The pond at Langley covers 600 acres,
and ever this rested a dark cloud,
which shot downwards a funnel shaped
column, the water apparently moving
upwards to meet it. The two met
finally and through the huge funnel
thus foinied an immense quantity of
water was sucked up. The column,
it is said, did not remain stationary,
but moved towards the railroad trestle,
in which direction it disappered.
Not a drop of water fell from this
newly charged .loud in the vicinity,
althouh a heavy rain in the neigh
borhood of Aiken was supposed to be
i the re4t of it.
A negro. named Henry (lover,eom
mitted an assualt ou Friday of last
week on M1rs. Shuler, of Lexington,
while on her way home. While en
gaged in his brutal work a white man
came up, when the negro fled. Mrs.
Shuler was badly beaten about the
head with a lightwood knot. Subse
quent search found the villain in a
swamp. and rightly he was shot down
on the spot.
The next case is that of the negro
who murdered Capt. A. F. Butler,
Railroad Agent. in the city of Augusta,
during the last week. It was an m:i
provoked murder and done in the
presence of the murdered man's wife.
Here, too, was a richly deserved pun
ishment meted out. The negro, after
arrest and incarceration, was demanded
of the jailer by the indignant citizens
and speedily made to expiate his
crime. What a comment on civil

nifed. The object being to impress
upon the cadets the idea of duty and

moral sense and to enforce ethical
propositions. All of the military that
is really valuable is used ; all that is

nd talking for the welfatre of our souls,
md c-losing with prayer. He read to us
the 3rd Chapter of John, and assured us
ht whosoever belicreth in Christ shall
not perish biut shall have everlasting
ife. We must say that this good preacher
as done moire for us thtan any one we
ever saw, Hie has often given us papers
nd books, and pointed us the way from
earth to glory, He has done more for us
than the colored preachers, for they
seem to care nothing for us. Not one

The reason the negro preachers do not
visit these prisoners, is that they will
probably not be out in time to vote next
fall. Of all your politicians the negro
reacher is the most thorough. the most
absorbed, the most indefatigable. And
of all political gatherings, the negro
preahings are the purest and most em
hatic. Among the negro preachers it

'Vote for the Radical party and go to

At Ridge Spring, on the Charlotte,
Columbia & Augusta Railroad, a col
lision between the colored militia and
the whites seemed imminent a few
days ago. The colored companies
were drilling untIl a late hour oi Mon
day night. and threats were made as
t0 what they would do if interfered
with by the whites. The latter be
cominim inceinsed at the offensive atti
tude assumed, sent out runners for
help in case it came to the worst.
Fortunately for theni, the colored
troops kaving fought nobly in the
drill, retired quietly without ai overt
act. It is time that the radical party,
if they sincerely wish reform nd a
peaceful campaign, endeavor to con
vince the rank and file of their fol
lowers that this state of affairs must
be discontinued. It is scarcely pos-i

Gcorgetown is also much distracted,
but it is principally a republicau fight
between rival factiouns. A requisition
was made on the commandant at Char

The demand was declined. however, on
the ground that the difficulty was a mat
ter for the State authorities to settle.

A Call for a National Sports
At Oswego, N. Y., June 23, 1874,
the State Association for the protec
tion of fish and game, resolved to en
dorse the call for a National Associa
tion, and appointed the 9th day of
September, at Niagara Falls, as the
time and place to meet in convention,
and deliberate for intelligent and effi
cient legislation for the protection of
Game, Birds and Fish. In accordance
with tiis the call is made and dele
gates are invited from all sections of
the country to attend the Convention,
which we have been requested to pub.
lish. The necessity for some such
lezislation cannot be doubted, but no
mAtter how wholesome it might be
made it could have no effect on any
hunting grounds in this part of the
d.main. In the first place there is io
g.une to protect; second, were there
any it would be necessary to legislate
for the purification of the State Gov
ernmeut ere any law to that end could
be enacted which would be respected.
Seallawag ascendency. equal right.,
radical robberies amd other evils too
numerous to mnotion have turned
loose thousands of hungry hunters
who make a clean sweep of everything
from a minnow in the waters to a
sparrow in the fields. However, if.
there are any here who would like to
have a voice in the Convention, we
invite them to read the call and then
go to Niagara Falls.
"In Pairfield, Newberry, Union.
Spartanburg and Greenville, many of
the colored people are prepared to
listen to men whom they have always
respected, always knew were their
friends, but whom the party lash and
the power of ridicule and of personal
denunciation kept them from support
ing in political matters and in elec
tions. This disposition to correct a
wrong, to be set in the right path, to
et out of the den of thieves, and to
be ranged in political action with'
hotest men, ought to be warmly met
and strongly encouraged. Our friends1
may depend upon it that the colpred
people will hear thema with patience,
and will weigh their suggestions."
So far as our observation extends
the Phoenix is correct in saying that
"the colored people are prepared to
listen to men whom they have always
respected." And it is our duty to,
encourage that feeling. In no county
of the State does a better feeling exist
between the two classes thanm in New
berry. The bitterness of the past
seems to be all past, and the kindliest1
relations exists where heretofor'e it was
the reverse. The colored people have ~
gained an experienice which will be of
incalulable benefit to them, in finding
out that they have been made the toolst
of designing, unprincipled men, who
eared nothing for them, and every
thing for themselves.

mnuch so that I fear we will not make
more than half : Crop of cotton. The
earlv cotton has shed off and wilted so
badly that it has commenced to open
before the bolls are grown. The late
otton has not suffered so much. It
ontinned to grow during the dry wea

Friday last it looks fresh and promi2ies
:t fair crop if frost stays off until the

much. Early corn, since the fodder
has been stripped, is not so good as we
expected, though I think the most of
the farmers about here will make
nough to do them.
I had the pleasure of being one of a
