;The State Ticket.
Gen. Wade Hampton, the chosen
standard-bearer of the Damocracy in
the coming campaign, needs no in
troduction to the people of South
Carolina. Born : in-- aarleton, he
has passed, ' As KdSf hi.sd before
him. the greatdr 0rtin ofi-iiis lite in
Richland, ad .represented that coun
ty severalim -the<State Legis
lature. Upon all the exciting ques
tions which agitated the State pre
viou; to the war Gen. Hampton en
tertained moderate views; but when
the South manifested by its action
that the people were united upon ex
trewe measures, he acquiesced in
their decision and devoted himself
and his fortune to their service. As
Colonel of the Hampton Legion he
entered active service and through
his merit and conspicuous gallantry
rose to the rank of Lieutenant-Gen
eral. When a State government was
organized under authority of Presi
dent Johnson, the gubernatorial nom
ination was offered to him and re
fused. Notwithstanding this, Gov
ernor Orr, .the regular candidate, re
ceived a majority of only a few votes.
In 1868 Gen. Hampton participated
in the National Democratic Conven
tion which nominated Seymour and
Blair, and two years later canvassed
the State for Carpenter and Butler in
in the Reform campaign. Since
then he has devoted his attention
to private affairs. Although General
Hampton has his residence in Colum
bia he owns large tracts of land in
Mississippi, where, as tenants and
laborers, he has settled all that re
main of his former slaves, and between
whom and himself the best relations
exist. Called by the State to the
front Gen Hampton will lead in the
most vigorous canvass ever made in
South Carolina. Politically be is in

amendments, without reservation, and

The Hon. W. D. Simpson, of Lau
rens, the nominee for Lieut-Governor,
both in the profession of law and in
the political field, has achieved de
served distinction. He represented
Laurens county in the Legislature
before the war, and in 1868 defeated
A. S. Wallace for Congress by a ma
jority of 4,291 votes. A partisan rule
of the House prevented him, owing
to his political disabilities, from rep
resenting the district. Col. Simpson'E
nomination adds much strength to the
Col. R. M1. Sims,. of York, was
Adjutant General of Gary's Brigade
during the war, and after the war rep
resented Lancaster in the State Sen

prminent member of the Patrons of
Husbandry, a gent.leman of high cul
ture, and very popular.
Gen. James, Conner, a leading
member of the bar of Charleston, was

of Brigadier General. He was a mem

United States to reconstruct the Stats
Since then he -has not taken any
active part in politics until the pres
ent campaign. In May he was unani
mously chosen Chairman of the State
Executive Committee. The enthu
siasin with which his nomination as
Attorney General was greeted by the
Convention is an evidence of the grat
ification with which it will be re
eeived by the people.
Gen. Johnson Hagood, of Barn
well, the candidate for Comptrollei
General, is.a leading.-representative ol
the planting interests- of the State.
He served with conspicuous gallantry
during the war ; was a member of thE
Legislature in 1865, and has sinc(
-then entertained Conservative political
views. For several years he was
President of the State Agricultura)
Society. While Gen. Hagood enjoys
general popularity, his local strength
is peculiarly great. The extraordlinary

Under his management all leaks will
be stopped in thd treasury.

Cameron's Order to Gen. Sher
WASHINGTON, Aug. 16.-Secretary
Cameron has written the following
letter t6 Gen. Sherman:
Aug. 15, 1876.
To Gen. W. T. Sherman, Com
manding United States Army :
SIR : The House of Representatives
of the United States, on the 10th inst.,
passed the following preamble and
Whereas, The right of suffrage
prescribed by the Constitution of the
several States is subject to the XVth
Amendment of the Constitution of the
United States, which is as follows :
"ARTICLE XV.-SECTION 1. The
right of citizens of the United States
to vote shall not be denied or abridged
by the United States, or by any State,
on account of race, color, or previous
condition of servitude.
SEC. 2. The Congress shall have
power to enforce this article by appro
And, whereas, The right of suffrage
so prescribed and regulated should be
faithfully maintained and observed by
the United States, and the several
States, and the citizens thereof; and,
Whereas, It is asserted that the
exercise of the right of suffrage is in
some of the States, notwithstanding
the efforts of all good citizens to the
contrary, resisted and controlled by
fraud, intimidation, and violence, so
that in such cases the object of the
amendment is defeated; and,
Whereas, All citizens, without dis
tinction of race or class or color, are
entitled to the protection conferred by
such article ; therefore,
Be it resolved by the Rouse of
Representatives, That all attempts,
by force, fraud, terror, intimidation,
or otherwise, to prevent the free ex
ercise of the right of suffrage in any
State should meet with certain, con
dign, and effectual punishment ; and
that in any case which has heretofore
occurred or that may occur hereafter,
in which violence or murder has been
or shall be committed by one race or
class upon the other, the prompt pros
ecution and punishment of the crimi
nal or criminals, in any court having
jurisdiction, is imperatively demanded,
whether the crime be one punishable
by fine or imprisonment, or one de
manding the penalty of death.
The President directs that in ac
cordance with the spirit of the above
you. are to hold all the available force
under your command not now en
gaged in subduing the savages on the
Western frontier in readiness to be
used upon the call or requisition of
the proper legal authorities for pro
teeting all citizens, without distinc
tion of race, color, or political opinion,
in the exercise of the right to vote, as
guaranteed by the. Fifteenth Amend
ment, and to assist in the enforce
ment of "certain, condign, and effec
tual punishment" upon all persons
who shall "attempt by force, fraud,
teri-or, intimidation, or otherwise to
prevent the free exercise of the right
of suffrage, as provided by the law of
the United States, and have such
force so distributed and stationed as
to be able to render prompt assistance
in the enforcement of the law. Such
additional orders as may be necessary
to carry out the purpose of these in
structions will be given to you from
time to time after consultation with
the law officers of the Government.
Very respectfully your obedient
J. D. CAMERON, Secretary of War.
The comments of the New York
Tribune are as follows :
"Secretary Cameron's letter to Gen.
Sherman is undeniably smart, and
the country will chuckle over the
neat way in which the resolutions of
the Democratic House about the right
of free suffrage at the South are turned
into a boomerang. And .yet, Mr.
Secretary, the judicious will grieve !
The effect of the letter will be to re
vive at the South the dread of Federal
interference with their elections, to
encourage among the negroes the hope
of having the troops officiously on
their side, and, in general, to foment
mischief rather than to avert it. It
is a clever piece of work-too clever
In another place it says in connee
tion with this subject:
"The whole country will look with
g eat interest to the Southern States
for the evidences of disorder or of
peace, and will sustain the Adminis
tration only if its policy is clearly
sustained by the facts as they exist."
We give below an account of the
passage of the above resolutions em
bodied in Cameron's order :
"There was much political excite
ment displayed over the resolution,
and although Mr. Lord said that he
had offered it after consultation with
many Southern members, it was man
ifest that there was a serious question
as to the good policy of the move in
the minds of many Democrats. The
Republicans supported it heartily.
The delay in reaching a final vote
upon it was caused by the fact that
many Democrats withheld their votes
on the preliminary motions, thus re
vealing the apparent absence of a quo.
rum, and necessitating two calls of the
House. In the meantime, Mr. Lord
tried to get an opportunity to explain
his purpose in defending the resolu
tion; but objection was made from
his own side of the House, Mr. Here
ford being conspicuous in the decla
ration that no explanation was wanted.
,The previous question was at length
seconded, and the main question or

Our Rifle Club.
Under ordinary circumstances we
would not have been in favor of such
an organization. We do not believe in
the encouragement of what is called
the "military spirit." Our future
battles have to be fought with the
Toledo blade of intellect ; the ballot
not the bullet is the weapon of civili
zation. But untortunately we are now
in a state of transition where physical
force may still be necessary to enforce
the law and preserve order.
In view of our peculiar situation,
where an unguarded word or hasty act
may produce a conflict, it is eminently
proper that there be in each com
munity an organized body who may at
a moment's warning be ready to pre
serve order by the call of any
peace officer-the Governor, the Sher
iff or the Mayor of the town. For
this and this only they are organized.
Under command of an officer who
combines prudence with energy, we
may rest assured that they never will
be called on except their presence be
needed, and when called on, that their
action will be made effective. The mere
appearance of an organized body by its
moral effect will often quell a riot. With
the sincere belief that for the purpose
of preserving order alone this club has
been organized, we thank our fellow
citizens for having increased the feel
ing of security in our midst.
P. S. The "old cannon" might be
made the nueleus of an artillery com
pany, but we think best to feed her
only with blank cartridges to boom
forth the victory of Tilden atnd Hamp
ton ; then she may burst, provided
the fragments won't hurt anybody
not even St. Whittemore.

Letters and Figures in Favor
We cannot divest ourselves of the
belief in omens; where we cannot
trace cause and effect we love to find
some connexion between present and
future events however fanciful. There
is no connexion between the rising
of a covey of birds on our right and
the price of cotton ; still the sensible
Romans believed it and dealt in fu
tures accordingly. But even where
our expectations are based upon rea
sonable grounds we are pleased to find
seeming confirmation of our conclusions
from strange coincidences in nature
or in unexpected properties and rela
tious of figures and letters. We take
the bulk of the following vagaries from
that sterling paper the St. Louis Re
publican-don't stop reading, it is a
good Democratic paper-and a fev
our own fancy has supplied. In the
first instance it has been found that
Presidential candidates with the final
letter N to their sirnames have a de.
cided preference in the eyes of Dame
Fortune. The names of the following
nine Presidents end with that lucky
final letter, as Tilden's does, they will
find Washington, Jefferson, Madison,
Jackson, Van Buren, Harrison, Buch
anan, Lincoln and Johnson, just one
balf_of the whole illustrious line, whieb
seems to show that N is a very luck3
letter for the Presidential candidate to
have at the end of his name. The
letter 8, the initial of Samuel, is the
19th letter in the alphabet, and Uncle
Sam is.destined to be the 19th Presi
dent; but further, the letter J, in S.
J. Tilden, is the 10th, and indicates
that Tilden will be the 10th of those
Presidents whose name ends with an
N. Grant came very near ending
with the favorite letter, he inissed it
by a 't', but he foreshadowed the
coming N. But now comes the most
starding coincidence. . The candidates
for the Presidency are
Taking the order in which the various
letters composing those names stand
in the alphabet, just as 8 was found
to be the nineteenth, and adding them~
together, it will be found that the ag
gregate is 369, exactly the number ol
votes in the. next electoral college, of
which the names of S. Tilden and T.
Hendricks make up 194, a clear ma
jority of the electoral vote. The fol

Death or General Wagener.
General John A. Wagener died
very suddenly at Walhalla, on last
Sunday. With him we have lost a
representative Democrat of the State.
He had just been nominated an Elec
ton for the State at large by the Dem
oratic Convention, and the State al
large is the chief mourner, however
great the bereavement of his family
and friends. He by his talent, vigor
and industry has organized the Ger
man element in this State, and imbued
it with love for their adopted country.
The seed which he has sown has borne
abundant fruit. The people of this
State have honored him because he
deserved it. Our German fellow-citi.
zens will never forget him and will
still be governed by the spirit of his
teachings and his actions.
The proceedings of this body wil]
be found in another column. We
have freely expressed our opinion that
the nominations should have been
made in a different manner ; still we
have never thought that we should
find cause to differ from the result
reac.ed. The Convention has nomi
nated able candidates who fairly repre.
sent the different shades of opinion.
Let us now lay aside all prejudice, vote
for and elect the nominees.

STRATFORD, CoNN., Aug. 23, 1876.
Very few of the readers of the HERALI
know anything of this charming New En
gland village, in which for the last five day.
I have been sojourning, the delightful quiel
of which Igladly exchanged for the bustle,
tush, roar and crowd of New York city
S. J., B. J. R.,.and one or two others whc
have been here, and who by the way arc
expected here this season, will suptain me
in the assertion, that this is the place foi
rest, quiet and comfort, with refined socie.
ty and unbounded hospitality. In Phila
delphia, at the Centennial Exposition, in
New York, on the rushing trains, on crowd
ed streets, the mind is dazed and bewilder
ed, but here, the sensibilities are touched,
the heart is reached, nature in her loveliesi
aspects is spread out in lavish array.
Dr. J. and self left New York on Thurs
day last, taking an Excursion Steamer ai
the foot of 24th street, for Norwalk, a bust
ling little town, which we reached at sii
o'clock, p. m., in time for the cars' whic
made the rest of the delightful journey tc
Stratford, where we were met with oper
arms by Mr. and Mrs. Hurd and family,
and soon after were in the fullest sense ol
the expression, at home.
The journey up the East river was enjoy
ed largely, for the steamer was staunch,
the saloon was filled with ladies and gentle.
men, with the usual complement of chil,
dren, and then there was an excellent bau
of music, which discoursed frequently and
well, beside there were refreshments of all
kinds-and all of this, excepting the latter,
for the small sum of 25 cents. But I musl
not dwell on the river ride nor that by rail
for I wish to tell of a clam bake with eeb
broiled. I will only s-y that the ride by
rail from Norwalk, revealed a new system
of farming to me-everything was a picture
of beauty, charming residences, fine scenery,
rich meadows, sleek cattle, &c., with every
few miles a beautiful view of the coast.
But if I was charmed with all that, how
much more so when our train stopped with
a suddencess which will throw one. out ol
equilibrium if not prepared for the shock
everything, it may be said, is here done it
a hurry, the trains move fast, stop and stari
fast, and the people are fast. Even the
horses have the motion and move on the
2.40 principle. I remarked this to a-frienc
here,- who replied, "Oh, yes, everything ii
at its speed here, there is no time for tar
rying." Hastily following the example o
a score of others I jumped out, and in the
next moment the train was in quick mo
tion, the next out of sigh t.

with gravelled walk; between, everywher e

I would like to tell of the old graveyart
with its moss covered tombs of grey an<
blue slate, bearing dates which run back gi
far as 1690, and tell that "here lyesye body!
of one of the first settlers of Stratford. Thi
most of these old stones, some of whicl
are extremely rude in shape, show early at

There are only one or two stores here,

of the people, who can go and return at al

fifty-four trains passing up and down throngl

I had not been here long before my kini

time-Monday, mode of transportation, a
large spring wagon drawn by a spanking
pair of bays who were happily inoculated
with the fast motion. The party numbered
twelve happy souls, the majority, of course,
ladies (nature's best gift being largely it
the majority in Stratford.) The ride in the
bracing morning air--thermometer at 50
deg.-was delicious, as we dashed over the
long bridge (there are so many bridges is
this region that the next town, three miles
below, is named Bridgeport,) and out inro the
country, through shady avenues, every nou
and then catching glimpses of the Sound,
our spirits rose to the occ.asion. Arrived,
Mr. H., who was the fiovinig spirit, gave
orders for dinner, to consist of blue fish,
eels and clams without number. In the
meantime some of the party donned bath.
lg suits and took the tide, which was al
its flood, and made mermaids of themselves,
with the exception of Dr. J., who trans*
formed himself into an interesting merman,
to the horror of the fish and other finny
creatures. With appetites made keen by the
ride, salt sea air, bathing and a delightful
anticipation of what was in store, we sat
down to the spread-a veritable marine re~
past. It was such a d inner as I may have
dreamed of but never before realized. I
know that my fish-loving readers will envy
me the pleasure of that occasion. It was
my first introduction to a clam bake. The
clams are taken from the salty beds and
placed in a pyramid or pile on the sand
and a fire built around, the cooking being
after the approved and familiar barbecue
style. The most acceptable style for me is
the fry-in this way they are perfectly de.
liious, and boiled they are not bad to take
by any means. A young lady friend from
Charleston, who is here for her health, and
who came here in search of an appetite,
has found it, and it would have done any
one good to see the execution she did on
this occasion. Like all ;hings else, this
dinner had to end, not because the blue
fish, eelsfr clams gave out, but that the
cap.cities of the party were not sufficient
to take in more.
Yesterday, Dr. J. and self took a ride by
rail to New Haven, famous as a seat of
learning, for there is located Yale College.
[t is a city of about 60,000 souls, hrand

FOR TE HERALD.
HOPE STATION, Aug. 23, 1876.
MR. EDITOR :-As briefly as possi
ble, under existing circumstances, I
will endeavor, for the interest of your
intelligent readers, to sketch the pro
gramme of a pie-nic given by the
Independent Order of Good Templars
at Capers' Chapel, in Old Dutch Fork,
Saturday, 19th instant. The day
promised a beautiful one as Aurora
appeared in the grey twili'ght of the
morning, lifting with her rosy fingers
the dark veil of night. - Eolus held his
boisterous legions at bay ; Appollo
drove forth his golden chariot with its
former brilliancy, thus making a day
in which angelic females-to enjoy
the great feast-might be seen peram
bulating the inhumid roads to the
place of congregation. At 10 o'clock
a large crowd had already assembled.
On arriving upon the ground we found
the organization in session. After its
session of business transactions was
over, a procession was formed as fol
lows : Speakers, then visitors from
other Temperance Societies, after
whom came the procession. The pro
cession was very imposing as it met
the public gaze, and plainly demon
strated the large accession of individ
uals from present and prospective
drunkenness to the grand army of
Moral Reform. This grand phalanx
'of non-alcoholics proceeded to the
speaker's stand, upon which, Messrs.
J. B. O'Neall Holloway, a recent and
well-qualified graduate of Newberry
College, J. Fletcher Hobbs, a present
collegian of the same institution, and
Major Henry A. Meetze, the well
known and distinguished legislator of
Lexington County, took their seats.
Mr. Holloway put the ball in motion
by a very eloquent, well-timed and
tuost practical address to both old and
young. Mr. Hobbs was then intro
duced, and at some length tr 'ed the
effects of intemperance upon taie men
tal, physical and moral man individ
ually, then its effects upon the social
and domestic circles, and finally its
pernicious effects upon a nation's com
mionwealth. Lastly came the Major,
with all his laughable'jokes and good,
hard, common sense,'which failed not
in its logical tones to touch very
deeply the meditating powers of every
rational mind, and the horrid pano
ramie scenes of alesko1ic tyranny that
this logical sire presented,. failed not
todam pen the eyes of those whose
'ps had touched the "accursed thing."
orwe saw once alcoholic maniacs,
but now at war with the venomous
liquid, shiedding bitter tears over their
past actions as the truth touched their
hearts, and we too were forced to fol
low the Scriptural injunction, "Rejoice
when others rejoice and weep when
others weep." Soon dinner, to the
great delight of all, was announced.
The table was loaded with an exuber
ance of food from the hands of our.
good "Old Dutch Fork women."
These generous ladies are not only due
unbounded thanks for the feast fur
nished their guests, but also for
the great exertions they made to
render the occasion a pleasant and
felicitous one. After dinner, Maj.
M1eetze n~ade a very interesting and
instructive address ori the present po
litical and degraded condition of,South
Carolina, advising her patriotic sons
what course to pursue for her redemp
tion. A MICUS.
COLUMBA, August 23.-The follow
ing order, annoneing the earliest ap
