Death of Mr. A. J. Salinas.
Mr. A. J. Salinas, a respected citi
zen of Charleston, well known all over
the State as a successful cotton broker,
died at Spartanburg on Wednesday
morning last, just before day. He
had only arrived the evening before
with his wife and two daughters from
Cherokee Springs, and took supper at
the table of the Palmetto Hotel, and
retired to bed without any unusual
symptoms, but alas, during the night
he became violently ill, and before
daylight had ceased to live. It was a
sad and sudden death, and the symi
pathies of the entire community were
warmly and largely expressed to the
sorrowing wife and daughters. The
deceased was the only living brother
of .our townsman, Mr. F. E. Salinas,
who was telegraphed to at once and
who arrived at 2 o'clock the next
night. On Thursday morning the re
mains, accompanied by his brother
and his brother-in-law, Dr. Gibbes of
Union, were taken down the Spartan
burg and Greenville roads to the South
Carolina railroad for interment in
"They may seek to disgrace others,
but sooner or later, the blow like the
Australian boomerang, when thrown
by an inexperienced band, will re
bound upon themselves."
The word "boomerang" is so fre
quently used and so often misapplied
that we may be excused for giving
our readers a description and indicate
the proper application of the word.
The following is Webster's definition:
"bA very singular missile weapon
used by the natives of Australia. It
is made of hard wood, usually from
20 to 30 inches in length, from 2 to
3 inches wide and half or three quar
ters of an inch thiek. It is curved or
bent in the middle at an angle from
100 to 140 degrees. When thrown
from the hand with a quick rotary
motion, it describes very remarkable

We were quite familiar with the in
strument when a boy, and remember
well the feeling of pride we expelri
enced when after a long flight it would
fall submissively at our feet. It re
quires great practice, however, to at

ani inex.perienced hand it does nt re

fore, based upon that wrong concep
tion are necessarily false.
IHard Money and4 Injjation.
There are no two subjects upon
which people think they are better
prepared to express an opinion than
on Polities and Finance. There arc
no two subjects of inquiry on which so1
few are entitled to have any opinion at
all. As Sciences, Political Economy
and -the Science of Government are
in their very infancy. Some of the
Natural Sc.iences, as B3otap~y, Chlemis
try, Anatomy, Physiology, are ap
praching the status of the exact
Sinces. But their combinations arc
as nothing compared to the infiuite
eothbinations of Political Economy.
After even Mental Philosophy should
shw satisfaictorily how all the opera
tions of a4 single nind arp carried on.
yu have to calculate how nulli.os .of
minds operate one upon another; th1e
calculation of the resultant force will
be beyond the power of our mathe
maticians, for sometime we opine. s
But just because we know so little
about Polities, we can talk so glibly
about it. our neighbor knows uo more,
and we iieed not be afraiL Any
absurdity may be advauced without
any danger of a demolishing reply. .
But to come to the point. The
question of finance is brought before
us and we have to decide. What shall I
we do? What is the best for us in 1
the South at the present time? We'
miust coie to some conclusion. Hun
dreds of pages from Say and Adam
Smith and Ricardo would leave us no
wiser than they found us. There is,
however, frequently a practical way of
coming to a deeision where a theoreti
cal decision cannot be had. Here it
is in this case:
All the rich bankers and brokers
and real estate holders and railroad r
kings and their organs are opposed to
the expansion of currency. They are
rich, and, of course, desire to be richer.
We in the South are poor, and do not
want to be very poor. What suits
the rich does not suit the poor, and if 4
inflatiou-as it is called-does not
suit the rich, it is very apt to be of
advantage to the poor. That's the
whole ground for our being in favor
of it. We are an inflationist until
we are better informed. a

The reunion of the survivors of this a
far-famed gallant corps took place on
last Wednesday, the 21st of July, the a
fourteenth anniversary of the battle of a
Mauassas. To show the spifit of con- t
ciliation pervading the meeting we
can do nothing better than to copy an
editorial of the Union-flerald, in re

be universal. One more link is added

The early trains yesterday morning
brought in several of the gentlemen
who were to take part in the re-union

was crowded to hear the oration of
Gen. T. M. Logan. A large propor

Brand's band occupied the gallery,
and played some ie national airs, in
luding~ "Dixie," which is now a na-s
tional air. Gien. Hampton again pre

ing were at their tables. Amopg
others on the platform we noticed Drs.
Darby and Taylor, besides the gentle- I
men of the miornling session.i
Gien. T. M. Logan bears no resemn
blance to his namesake, Gen. John A.1
Loau. of Illinois. The orator of the.
Hampton legion is a tall, slender, pale
looking gentleman, with a soft, sweet (
voice, and an easy, natural gesticula-a
tion. Hie spoke earnestly, eloquently
and fervidly for about an hour and a
half. R1ifaddress o' oration was cx
tremely conservative in the best accep
tation of that term. lHe gave the
North credit for all that could be just
ly claimed for her by any of her best
and truest statesmen-her energy, s
versevecran co, indgstry and great re-r
sores ; for the South, of course, hie r
claimed her eminent statesmanship,v
great moral qualities, refined culture y
and iincible courage.

studies, and with laurels of intellectual

the youthful orators. The first address
s delivered by Mr. Lake. on the "Impor

'lie Value and Means of Obtaining an Ed

a diiy with an address.upon "The Progres

ice will not allow even a brief synopsis of

I degeneracy and financial intrigue and

,secret of our couns. 's social and political

our people are aroused, and the cause of ini

loubled efforts of our citizens. Would that A.
