Provisions of the Tax Bill.
As much interest is felt in the tax
ill; and even Republican journals are
low urging upon the Governor to dis
pprove it, it may be useful to refresh
he minds of our readers with arecapit
lation of its provisions. The mo
Lent we laid our eyes upon it, we
hought it would never do. Upon
very just ground, we expected the
,onservatives of the State, who main
y pay the taxes, to oppose it. Nor
ould we, for the life of us, see how a
)arty, which had come in upon pledges
f reform-which pledges were re
pected, so far as the declarations,
nessages and vetoes of Governor
3hamberlain were concerned-could
are undertake to carry a measure
hrough which, in the teeth of
hose. messages, belied all its lavish
romises, and violated its necessary
>rogramme. It is a happy circum
tance-it is a thing to be welcomed
rith joy-that upon grounds satisfac
ory to them, Republicans join us in
>rotest against its being made a law.
['he question of taxation is thus rising
nto its proper position and proportions.
hould the present bill receive the
ixecutive veto, it goes over to the
text session of the General Assembly,
fd discussion and consideration of
he whole subject of taxation will be

vent of a veto, we shall have a whole

in this vital subject, just as we have

Gov. Kellogg in his message to the
General Assembly says "the occasion
of this extraordinary session marks a
new and I trust a better era in the
history of the State. After a political
contest, the length and bitterness of
which have been unparalleled, a policy
-has at last been adopted, which, I
think, should have been tried at first,
and which, I trust, will afford an im
mediate and satisfactory solution of
the difficulties that have beset us for
years and entailed distress and mis
fortune upon the people. It is a most
hopeful sign in my opinion when, as
now, citizens of all political parties
seem inclined to take the management
of this affair into their own hands
and, sinking party aims, unite to ad
vance the general good."y
Regarding the State revenues and
their collection and disbursement the
Governor expresses the opinion that
the present system is too cumbersome,
expensive and unjust, and should be
radically changed. The Governor then
details the changes desired, and gives
a resume of the State finances, which
show a reduction in the State debt of
$3,065,926 since 1873.
He is following the example of
Gov. Chamberlain in the exercise of
the veto power on some of the iniqai
tous measures attempted there.
Associate Reformed Presbytery
The second Associate Reformed
Presbytery, we learn from the Abbe
ville M3ediusm, met at Dne West on
Friday, the 9th. The opening sermon
was preached by the retiring Mode
rator, the Rev. E. P. McClintock, of
Newberry. The meeting was well at
tended, all of the ministers constituting
Presbytery being present, and with but
asingle exception all the churches were
represented by elders. The Rev. R.
F. Bradley, of Anderson, was elected
Moderator. Trial discourses were de
lived by five theological students now
in the Seminary. The congregations
of Presbytery were reported as having
come up to their apportionments. .On
Sabbath the Lord's Supper was ad
ministered to about three hundred
persons. The Rev. J. C. Boyd; of
Newberry, conducted Sunday nights'
service. The church at Due West has
added to its membership some eight
or ten. Presbytery adjourned to meet
in the Thompson Street Church, at
Newberry, on the Friday before the
meeting of Synod in September next.
The Tax Dill.
We copy from the Phenix of Wed
nesday its article giving a review of
the provisions of the Tax Bill, a peru
sal of which will not only prove in
teresting, but afford much information.
It is a most extravagant bill, and is
generally, we are pleased to say, so
pronounced. There is no need of such
heavy taxation, nor can the impover
ished people of this State bear it.
The Phenix says that Governor
Chamberlain objects to the bill, and
only his engagements have prevented
him from making a statement in wri
ting, but he is open in saying that he
will not approve it. Good again for
our reform Governor, who shows on
every fitting occasion that he has the
interest of the whole people at heart,
and is ready for any emergeney. His
determination will give intense satis
The Daily Telegraph.
The above is the title of a new as
pirant for public favor in the city of
Charleston, the first numbers of which
have reached us. It is a sprightly and
spirited little sheet, and published by
L~. E. C. Moore & Co., from No. 6
Broad Street, from whence the old and
ime honored "Mercury" was issued.
Charleston has long needed another
faily and it has been a surprise that
mother has not long ago been estab
ished, and though the way is rough
mnd hard, yet we see no reason why,
if proper efforts are made, that the
Tlegrapht will not become a success.
Wisely too, the proprietors issue it as

price of $5 per annum.
All the fools are not dead yet, ac

money so easy that he quickly put the

The Greenville Enterprise & 3toun
taineer. requests all papers to give pub
licity to the fact that some time since,
a man calling himself E. W. Mason,
came to Greenville and established
himself as an instructor in penman
ship. He claiuied to have been a
former professor in the Eastman Busi
ness College, at Atlanta, and also of a
similar institution at Poughkeepse,
N. Y. He also professed being a
member of the Episcopal Church, a
member of the Masonic fraternity, and
also of the Good Templars, passing
himself as an unmarried man. After
a short stay, he proved to be an im
postor and a suspended Mason, hav
ing as we learn, a wife and children in
in Selma, Ala., and another wife in
Poughkeepsie. Whilst in Greenville
he behaved himself very badly, leav
ing suddenly for parts unknown.
It is not probable, after ventilation
of the above, that he will dare to visit
this place, yet it is not amiss to be on
the lookout. If he does not. perhaps
some other sharper may.
Bald Mountain, of which there was
so much excitement last summer, is
again, to the consternation of the peo
ple along the mountain ranges in
Western North Carolina, showing signs
of agitation. Before, the rumblings
and quakings were.only heard and flt
in the immediate neighborhood of Bald
Mountain, but now the shakes and
noises extend over the whole moun
tain region. It is supposed that this
region was once the crater of a vol
cano, for cinders are frequently found
in ploughing, and it is not improbable
that it will once more break out in
flame and burning lava. There can
be no doubt that something unusual
will happen ere long.
Mt. R. C. Logan, formerly of the
Kingstree Star, by invitation of the
stockholders of the Greenville Enter
prise and Mountaineer, has entered
upon the editorial control of that paper.
His experience and ability qualifies
him for such a position, and we con
gratulate the readers of that excellent
journal on their good fortune in se
curing such valuable services.
The County Commissioners of Ab
beville very sensibly hav~e resolved to
build no more bridges in that county
until after the crops are laid by. They
reason that not only better contracts can
then be made, but that there will be
more time to spare. A sehaible conclu
sion, certainly, and one which might
with propriety be taken as an example
worthy of imitation.
The new Treasurer who is to suc
ceed Mr. Spinner is a Mr. New, a
wealthy banker of Indianapolis, Ind.,
arid is about forty-three years of age.
He has been quartermaster-general of
that State and member of the board
of finance. His financial abilities are
said to be of a superior character.
The correspondent of the Greenville
News has interviewed Walker, the
murderer of the Rev. Claudius Miller,
and found him chaine-d by the neck to
the floor of the jail. His confession
is a long list of crime, the murder for
which he is now in prison,being the
most brutal and cold-blooded of all.
The Keowee (Waihalla) Courier
says that Mr. Sligh's bed room was
entered on last Thursday night and
852 taken from the pocket of his
pants. We presume that Mr. Hillary
Sligh, formerly of Jalapa in this
County, is the person alluded to.
A fine chance will be afforded this
fall by the Greenville Agricultural
Society to take a premium, one being
offered for the best cook and the big
gest baby. As the offer is open to the
world, why may not Newberry try for
one if not for both.
Mr. Beecher says that Emma Moul
ton put her hand gently around his
neck and kissed him, but that he did
not return it. We don't believe him.
Any man who would not kiss a woman
back is no man at all. Too thin. It
the truth is known he kissed first.
FOR THE HERALD.
The Hook and Ladder Company
We propose through the columns of
your valuable paper to prove that this
scheme is an impracticable one, and can
neither succeed. financially or practi
cally. In its financial aspect it must
depend for its success either on taxation
or subscription. The vacant stores,
uninhabited dwellings, and the possi
bility that a road may be built to
Laurens should cause tax holders to
pause and reflect on its feasibility before
they submit to be further burdened with
taxation. If it cannot succeed by taxa
tion, then it must depend on success by
subscription. Is there a plethora of
money here now to equip it? In its
practical view it is uscless. It would
take fully a year's practice to render its
members aufait in climbing ladders or
handling buckets, and even when ex
pert they would find that they could
not extinguish a fire under way. The
effort of a child to stop the destruction
of the crockery in a china shop after a
mud ball had entered is a fit simile of
the attempt of a Hook and Ladder Com
pany to check the devouring element.

refection. our duty is performed, even

FOR TrE HRALD. b
Sporting in Florida. ai
OCALA, FLA., April Coh, 1875. tl
MR. EIT-r :-Davs, weeks and monti s
have passed since I left our lovely little
village for Florida, (commonly called the l
Land of Fruits and Flowers,) in search of
that precious boon, health. Going via
Charleston, S. C., then by steamer to Jack
sonville, Fla., touching at Savannah and ",
Fernandina, arriving sarely in JacksonviPle, c
and remaining there a short time, we trav- i
eled up the St. John's until we entered the a
mouth of the picturesque Ocklawaha, a very f
small stream, and navigable for small boats a
only, following up the small crooked stream
and passing some fine wild orange groves
-which are being rapidly converted into
sweet groves-until we enter the mouth of P
the Silver Spring run-then going up the
Spring run about six miles, arriving at the t
Head, where we found hacks ready to con.
vey us to the lovely little village of Ocala,
a distance of about six miles from the
Springs. After remaining in Ocala about a b
month, we found ourselves much improved, 1
and as*we were anxious to satisfy our hunt- 9
ing and fishing propensitirs, we procured a t
team and off we started fo: Crystal River, n
a small stream about ten miles in length
and emptying into the Gulf of Mexico about tl
thirty miles soath of Cedar Keys. We
found it quite pleasant at Crystal River, the
hunting and fishing being very fine. ln- b
mediately after our arrival we were induced I
to go on a bear chase, which is common a
there and considered fine sport. Procuring a
some little boats, suitable for the occasion, i
down t'e river we floated, taking advan- t
tage t. *e talling tide; our boats were 0
hea-iiy loaded with guns, dogs, knives, '
ropes, &c., such things are often found very a
useful on these dangerous expeditions; haul- ti
ing some miles down the river, we made b
our boats fast to a huge. cypress and all g
hands went on shore. After wading some f
distance through the cypress swamp, sud- P
denly we were aroused by the dogs jump- v
ing a huge wild cat. The animal proved too T
swift for the dogs, and the denseness of t.e *a
swamp prevented our getting him; notwith- f"
standing we fired quite a cumber of shots 0
at him, some we think taking effect, but it h
seemed to increase his speed, and off into g
the swamp he sprang, we losing sight of P
him. As the dogs seemed willing to give tl
up the chase, we gave him up, knowing that s
plenty of game was near us. We passed g
on, getting entirely out of the swamp and a
passing through a thick scrub; now and e
then an old buck would be chased out from Y
his hiding place and we would occasionally f<
bring one down, take the hide and hams, C
leaving the remainder for the dogs and h1
buzzards. Passing on, we came to a dense 0
thicket and soon we heard the dogs, saw C
the bushes moving to and fro, and suddenly P
out near us came a huge bear-he was so
very fat that he could not run fast-with r
the dogs after, pinching him on every side ; d
occasionally we would hear a howl from t
the dogs, caused by the bear giving them a
slap with his huge paw- tearing them p
fearfully. The first squid fired at him, c
which seemed to rouse him up, and hie C
commenced more furiously on the dogs, V
slapping them in every direction. The first t
~squad seeing they had wounded him, were
'fearful they would be attacked, and began '
climbing trees-climbing those that were
small, so the monster bear could not fol- r
low after them. He didn't turn back, how- a
ever, but kept right ahead, running nearly t
over the second squad, (as we divided into e
squads), they fired quite a number of timecs
at him-apparently without any effect, and a
just as we began to think he was going to
get away, he halted some distance from us e
to slap one of the dogs with his trenmen- g
dous paw, killing the dog instantly, and a
rifle ball well aimed was sent whirling at
him, striking him just behind the front legs, n
a tremendous howl ensued and a desperate
rush at the dogs, jumping almost straight.
up, he fell lifeless on the ground and on
the dog he had just killed. It was fine but
dangerous sport. We then were all some
what fatigued, and thinking we had hunted ~
enough for one day, we went about one
mile farther south to a small stream called
Salt River, where we found an oyster bar ;s
the tide was just right for us to gather them.
We built a fire, threw the oysters in and
such a roast- I never have had before-the A
oysters were very large and of fine flavor.
After feasting on oysters until we all became
satisfied, we returned to the scene of battle
where we found the bear, and after hard o
dragging and pulling-making horses of ij
eurselves-we succeeded in getting the bear ti
to our boat. We then returned to our -al
camp, catching all the fish we wanted on r<
our return by trolling a line after our boat. et
The bear weighed several hundred pounds, al
and after being quartered up was very fine si
food indeed, and producing abost six gal- I6
Ions of oil, which we found very useful in ft
cooking. We were on other huuting and cI
fishing expeditions, and always met with a
good success. Leaving Crystal River we P
embarked on a small four ton schooner for s
a visit to Cedar Keys. We went out in the P
Gulf of Mexico about fifteen miles from
land, when a tremendous storm caine up
and we were tossed about by~thie mighty 1
waves for many hours, sometimes we would ai
be apparently under the water, as the huge
waves would often rush over the deck; b
having a bold captain, who didn't get so
much excited and kept us cheered up as
much as rossible, and Providence smiling e
upon, we were all landed safely, at Cedar ~
Keys, promising ourselves'not to embark
on such a frail craft again. .After remiaining
some time at Cedar Keys and enjoying our
selves finely, we returned to Crystal River,
then hiring a team to carry us to Tampa, a
distance of one hundred miles, we traced the
Gulf coast down, passing through Brooks
ville, the county site of Hernando County.
The country between Crystal River and
Brooksville, a distance of about forty miles, in
we found rather poor, being pine forest;
and the country is very thickly settled. Jij
Arriving at Brooksville, we found quite a y
stir, court being in session. The citizens af
were very kind indeed, and seemed to wel- th~
come all strangers. Brooksville has a pop- ali
ulation of two hundred and fifty, eight or w]
ten stores, and some of them well stocked th
ith merchandise of every description. We kr
saw some very fine orange groves there, pt
the trees were just blooming and some of ar
them loaded with fruit, presenting a grand su
sight. We also saw many fine plantations th
t and near Brooksville unoccupied, and be
he lands are as fertile as any found in the
tate, and well adapted to the growth of
ranges, lemons, limes, bananas, dates',A
:itrons, and in fact most all tropical fruits. na

It. bV the gOverllient many years ago, we
,w many traces of the Ind'an war, singu
r scrolls and marks of most every de
ription cut on the huge pine trees, evi
ntly signs which had considerable mean
g, known to none but the Indians. I can
>t say that we were pleased with the
)untry between Brook5ville and Tampa, as
is apparently to poor to produceanything
id only used as a cattle range. The pine
rest was being i>urned off, and there was
mass of fire raging through the woods,
uned by a gentle breeze, presenting a
arful sight for about fifty miles; the flames
ould circle around and leap up the tall
nes, the moss or. the pines catching and
ie fire tracing the trees up nearly or quite
the top, forcing the numerous fox squir
!s to leap from branch to branch, and
allv seek refuge in the highest trees
ey could find, many of them no doubt
eing burne-i to death. Arriving at Tampa
e camped on a beautiful lot owned by the
vernnent, near the bay, and we found
ie bathing nice, fish plentiful and fruits of
ost every description in quantities. We
et quite a number of gentlemen theie who
)ok great pleasure in showing us over the
)wn and furnishing us with any and all the
iformation we wished. We saw melon
lossoms, tomatoes, etc., all growing nicely.
i fact, we could not tell that they had had
ay winter, the vegetables, etc., growing
a'd looking as fresh and green as they do
L June up in South Carolina. Tampa seems
> be at a stand-still at present, not much
Ding on in the way of improvements. The
)wn is beautifully laid out, wide and shady
reetsend many nice dwellings, with beau
ful fiower'yards may be seen. The public
uildipgs are large and commodious. The
verament has expended about seventy
ve thousand dollars improving their pro
rty~since the war and have erected some
ry nice buildings. After remaining in
ampa some time, and having a very pleas
it time, we bid adieu to our newly made
iends and departed for Ocala, a distance
f oie hundred miles, winding our way
isurely along, camping where we found
Dod hunting and fishing grounds, and sup
lying ourselves with food, and enjoying
ie sport finely. Travelling along we often
tw herds of cattle and deer grazing t.o
ether, which would at the sight of us dis
pear; sometimes we would get near
iough to bring down a huge buck, which
e used for meat nearly all the time and
>und it excellent food. Passing on, we
imped near Dade's Massacre-so called
ere-the particulars of which most every
ne is familiar with; leaving there and
ming via Sumpterville, which is . small
1c'e, formerly the county site of Sumpter
ounmty. The county site has ieen umoved
icen thy, leaving Sumpterville rather on the
ecline. The orange grows finely at Sump
:leocmmnon pine lands, anid there
re tumeronis lakes near there which afford
rotection to the trees. It is, I think, one
t the finest sections for growing oranges,
te., in the St ate. Lands are cheap, in fact
lenty of good lands can be homiesteaded
ere, the only difficulty is that there is no
'nportation. Oranges sell there for one
ollar per hundred, large, juicy ones and of
ne flavor. Leaving Sumpterville we ar
ved in Ocala the following day, where we
re now quartered, enjoying the early vege
bles, such as new potatoes, tomatoes,
arden peas and, in fact, most all kinds of
ege tables (all ne w crops), also blackberries
nd many other choice fruits. Our old
ewberry frien'd, Mr. A. L. Eichelberger, is
ngaged extensively in the orange, banana,
rape and vegetable business here and is
1ceeding well indeed.
The surrounding country presents anmag
ficent appearance this season of the year,
e trees being clothed in their green
lage, and the birds are in full spring'song

so common in all the Southern States,
