DEMOCRATIC CLur, No. 1, ToWNsHIP
4.-Tbis club held its regular weekly
meeting at Mt. Tabor Church Saturday.
Thos. S. Moorman, Esq., addressed the
meeting in the best and most effective
campaign speech we have ever heard.
He was listened to attentively by white
and colored, and his speech cannot fail
to do good. There are in this club 27
colored members; they are working no
bly, and are deeply in earnest, as is ev
idenced by the fact that they meet every
week and many of them have to leave
their cotton and ride several miles to
the place of meeting; yet most of the
-members come out every time. Three
cheers for No. 4.
Our candidates have gone the grand
rounds of the programme laid out by
the Executive Committee, the last
stump mounted on that programme
being at Jalapa, and we have just cause
for congratulation that they have la
bored faithfully and well, They rest
now for a few days to recuperate
theirenergies for another tour through
the county, and only wait the action of
the Committee, which will appoint
places and time. At the Court House,
in the grove where Hampton had the
. pleasure of addressing the thousands of
the county, we understand a gather
ing will again be made, and a sumptu
ous barbecue spread. This will be one
of the featuresin the next programme.

PROMENADE CONcEIRT.-The ladies
of Newberry propose giving a prome
nade concert on Monday evening, the
16th. inst., at Temperance Hall, the
proceeds of which are to be given to
the scourged city of Brunswick, Ga.,
hundreds of whose inhabitants are now
in sorest need of help. This is a most
praiseworthy charity, and one which
will make direct appeal to the hearts of
the people of Newberry,who are so high
ly favored as never to have experienced
the effect of a visitant so dreadful as
yellow fever. The concert will be un
der the direction of Mrs. Bailey, and it

till past -iiidnight, during whieh time
the fortunate delegates werentertained
and edified by_ the wisdom and elo
quence of the party lights, the doors
were opened to the public. The nomi
nations were made, and then began the
tag of war. The contest between the
carpet-bag party and their opponents
was very close, but the carpet-baggers
were victorious, so far as to seceme the
nominations-securing the offices will
be quite a different and independent
matter. There is evidently much dis
satisfaction among some of the most in
fluential colored men at the result of
the nomination; they see that the prime
and moving object of the carpet-bagger
is office, and only office continually.
No ticket that could be made up in this
Cour.ty would be easier to beat, and
we expect and intend to beat it largely.
The nominations are as follows:
For the Senate-H. C. Corwin.
For the House of Representatives
Thos. Keitt, W. H. Thomas and S. S.
Bridges, all colored.
For Sheriff-J. J. Carrington.
For Clerk of Court-T J. Clayton,

THE FIRE BLAZING.
On Tuesday last by regular ap
pointm ent the Democratic County Can
didates met the citizens of Liberty Hall
at Duckett's School House, and gandi
dates and people being all euthused it
is not strange that a good time was had.
At an early hour in the morning the
whole county seemed to be in motion
men, women and children making their
way to the spot of meeting-and it was
indeed gratifying to see in the crowd a
plentiful sprinkling of colored men,
who came out to hear the truth about
the matter and to take advice as to their
future course-for they evidently see
that their old leaders won't do to tie to
any longer. The colored men are soft
ening and begin to understand th4r
duty. There were four mounted and
uniformed clubs in attendance on this
occasion, viz., two from Cromer's Town
ship, one from Jalapa and one fron
Laurens; and as they dished up with
ringing cheers for State and County
tickets, they were met with responsive
vivas from the crowd already assem
bled. Conspicuous in this animated
concourse were the ladies, whose pres
ence lent a charm to the scene. The
speakers on this occasion were Lips
comb, Keitt, Dorrob, Chalmers, Riser,
Wheeler and Pope, who addressed the
company in the order mentioned, and
in the happiest manner. The arguments
adduced were plain and pointed and
convincingly practical that the only
hope for the p6ace and welfare of the
State lay in the success of the Demo
cratic cause, and with Hampton as
Governor.a new order of things would
take tlie place 6f the ruin which now
spreads over the State. The day was
not all taken up in speaking, either,
for the.ladies, knowing that the inner

redit to their appetites. The citizens

hospitality and for the earnest zeal dis
played by them, and they will have

AT JALAPA ON WEDNESDAY.
A BIG DAY.
NO ABATEMENT IN~ ENThUSIASM.
At an early hour on Wednesday
norning it was our plea-sure to arrive
mn the ground where the candidates
ere to make the last talk of the pro
~ramme as laid down by the Ex. Com
3re they are again started out onl
1 grand round. The place selected
-the beautiful grove surrounding the
iouse of W. C. Sligh-was well chosen,
shade and good water being plentiful.
As we drove up it could be seen that
he country around was all awake, that
verybody was out and that the day
was to be another one of those tri
ruphs of which Newberry has had so
nany since the campaign began. The
randidates were ill in line, and though
ird and hoarse from the arduous ia
ors of the past weeks, were ready for
he work in hand. Jalapa wvas ready,
boo, not only in stern material but with
large complement of nature's best
gift-woman-who were there in large
mbers, In and around, too, could
e seen crowds of colored men, in grat
ifying numbers. Soon. the stentorian
'oiceL of the chairman, Mr. E. P. Chal
ner, was heard making the welkin
-iag with his call* for order, as the
peakig would soon commence. The
rarious clubs in their red jackets, viz:
Jalapa, Cromer's, Laurens and Silver
street, took up the cry as it reverber
ted through the grand old woods, and
ame up to the stand with the battle
cry of Hampton and Reform. It was
an inspiring cry and a scene calculated
to stir one profoundly. When order
was had, Capt. Lipscomb was intro
duced, who occupied the attention for
nearly two hours. His remarks were
principally addressed to the colored
men who sat close to the stand. Next
followed Col. Keitt in a singular-ly hap
py and pointed style. The sensible and
practical illustrations of this speaker
were plain, enough to carry conviction
to the mind of every colored man pres
ent. ,That he knows ttow to talk to
them was made* evident on this occa
sion, and we wish that space allowed
for an ontline of what he advanced.
This speech occupied an hour. After
this came dinner, -and such a dinner!
We will not attempt a description, save
to say that everything was pirovided in
barbecued meats and hash, besides a
delicious spread fr-om the ladies' bas
kets in fried chickens, pies, cake, &c.
It was a glorious feast-and at our cor
ner of the table stood one or two of the
fair providers who shall alw ays have a
big place in our heart for the handsome
manner in which they did the honors.
The hash was better than any ever
tasted at a barbecue before, and we
think wouald have even made S. P. K.,
of famous hash memory, take down his
laurels. It was one of the best ordered
d inners, too, ever known-no confusion.
no rash, nor grab, nor anything calcu
lated to cause unpleasantness. All had
plenty, black and white, and each, too,
bad their tables. After a couple of
hours spent in this way, attention was
again direct ed to the stand and the
time was taken up by Dr. Dorroh, L.
7. W. Riser, Y. J. Pope, D). B. Whee
ler, S. Pope and E. P. Chailmers. As
these gentlemen had but limited time
he speeches had to be short, and in
non~PAI1eflce they made them pointed,
FOR THE MERALD.
TOWNSHIP NO. 11 ABLAZE!!
ONE HUNDRED COLORED PERSONS PRES
A COLORED CONVERT MAKES A SPEECH!
Last Saturday, 30th ultimo, was. a
.gala day for Township No. 11. On the
morning of that day large crowds could
be seen wending their course to the
place selected for the meeting-Wick
er's Camp Ground, about three and a
half miles from Pomaria depot. The
"Hampton Mounted Rifle Club," re
cently organized, under Capt. E. J.
Lake, in their red jackets, having uni
ted with the "Newberry Lance Club,"
under Capt. D. A. Dickert, also uni
formed, focmed a procession of over a
half mile long in length, and with
deafening shouts of "Hurrah for Hamp
ton," proceeded to the stand which had
been constructed near the school house,
where a large concourse of ladies and
gentlemen had already taken their seats.
The mounted clubs assumed their posi
tions around the stand in order. Some
one hundred colored persons had taken
their places near the stage, evidently
desirous of hearing the great questions
and issues of the day truthfully and
ably discussed. Wing some of the
white men present, we noticed those
who had not attended political meetings
sidee before the war-had never voted
for any of the fusion tickets put in the
field for the last eight years, thus show
ing that we had chosen a leader for
whom they were not ashamed' to cast
Quiet being restored, Mr. Thos. W.
HolIoway,. President, of the- Democratic
club at this place, introdnced the speak
ers in order. Eloquent and stirring
speeches were made by Capt. Lips
comb, Col. Keitt, Drs. Pope and Dor
roh, Y. J. Pope. Esq., Col. Chalmers,
and Mr, D. B. Wheeler.
They were plain., practical, often
abounding in living every-day illustra
tions calculated to reach the minds of
the colored persons, whom they were
pardeularly anxious to impress. Several
points were made by them that the
negroes were wanting to hear. It has
been told to them by the Radical speak
ers that the Northern army set them
free, and that if the Democratic party
gets the supremacy (as sure. it will)
their freedom and the;- rights as color
ed men would be taken from them.
This infamous set of lies was refuted,
and it was. clearly shown that the ne
groes owe their freedom to the war and
its results-the freedom of the negro
was a war measure, an effort on the,
part of Lincoln to cripple the resources
of the Southern people. Abraham Lin
coin would have suffered slavery to go
on to save the Union. We will not give
at length these able and convincing ad
dresses,, but we sicerely hope it is seed
sown in good ground, and that they
wviJ bring many votes to the Demo
The chairman of the meeting an
noanced that if there were any Repub
licans present who wished to speak,
they would now be given an opporta
ni y to do so, when Riley McKissick, a
caloted Republican, "a chronic candi
daoe." mounted the stand and delivered
himself of his pent-up "'publikin" feel
ings. He charged the whites of acting
in bad faith just afler. the war; told his
coiored brethren he was a "'publikin"
and intended voLing the "'publikiin"
ticket. but also said to them that they
were free men and had the right to vote
just as they pleased, nobody should hurt
them. Aft.er this harangue, in whicb
the English g' ammar and dictionary
suffered terrible contortions, Jack Sloan,
a recent convert to the Democratic fold,
rose and gave an account of the ill-.
treatmen.t he had .suiffered at the hands
of his pretended Radical friends; de
nounced the carpet-bagger and "scala
wagger" in unmeasm-ed terms, and de
clared his intention hereafter to follow
the whito people. and urged the same
upon his colored auditors. Jack took
his seat greeted by the ap)planse which
only the penitent deserve. .i
We forgot to mention in its proper
place, that our patriotic ladies had kind
ly furnished a basket picnic for the oc
casion. Everything was plentiful and
all enjoyed the repast hugely.
The exercises wvere then announced
by the chai-man as closed, when an
opportunity was extended to any who
might..desire to join the; Deincratic
club. "Several colored nien 'caine for

of this township-we shout., Hurrah for

To Shake, or not to Shake ?
Aye, that is the question. Is it better to
quiver from hesd to foot in the paroxysms
of fever and ague, or to bansh the atrocious
disease by a course' of that standard anti
febrile remedy,; Hostetter's Bitters.: There
cannot be much doubt as to the response of
the malaria-stricken to this inquiry. From
evety locality on this cont'nent whose inhab
itants are tormented wit-i the shlverihg
'pfague comes an increasing demand for the
only genuine preventive and eradicant of
malaria provided by science. The denizens
of fever and ague di.stricts well know how
utterly inadeqnate to do more than give a
brief respite are the so-called remedies of
the facuhty. Quinine, arsenic, bismuth
what are these but poisonous palliatives,
which cease after a time to produce any
beneficial effect whatever, and if persisted in
wreak irreparable mischief upon the system?
Everywhere they are be.ng abandoned by
intelligent persons, and that genuine vege
:able specific for intermittent and remittent
disease, Hostetter's Bitters, substituted in
their place. 4qtf.
QUESTIONS FOR EVERY ON~E TO AN
Are you troubled with Indigestion, Consti
pation of the Bowels, Dyspepsia, or any
other disease of the Liver? Have you suffer
ed for years and found no relief from the nse
of medicines? Do yott have a faint appetite,
and are you troubled with feelings of languor?
If you have these feelings we know you have
not tried the new discovery MERRELL'S
HEPATINE, at Dr. S. F. Fant's Drug Store.
It is performing wonderful cures in this and
all other commu itses where the people use
it. It is pronouinced by all the best Liver
Medicine in the -world. Two doses willhe
~ieve the worst case of Dyspepsia or Consti
pation of the Bowels. Each bottle contains
fifty doses, and a teaspoonful of this medi
cne in a wineglassful of water three times a
day for one day, prodtices a most wonder
ful ehange. Where the system is run
down with t.he lost of energy and appe
tite, or Dyspepsia, with all its -rain of evil,
is effecting its deadly work, this remedy,
MERRELL's LIEPATINE, never fails to bring
about a speedy and permanent cure. Those
who doubt the merit and virtueseof this medi
ine and live from~ day to day~without try

but can not lie dared~ unless they take the
