A Letter from Col. Suber.
GLENN'S SPRINGs, So. CA.,
July 29, 1877.
M:ssRS. EnIToRs : Pray allow me space
in your columns to say that no man can
regret more than I do the unwarranted
use that was made of my name at the elec
tion in Newberry last Thursday. And if it
had resulted in my election I would have
been grieved and embarrassed beyond
measure. THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN NO AL
TERNATIVE FOR ME BUT TO REFUSE TO SERVE,
having rejected all overtures made to me
to lend my name and influence to an inde
pendent ticket. I have yet to' learn that.
there is any power to compel a man to
enter the public service against his will,
any more than to compel men to vote for
you against their wishes. Although impious
men no longer bear sway in South Carolina,
I feel yet that the post of honor is the pri
vate station and am quite content to occu
py it for the remainder of my days. I did
everything that I could before I left home,
and my friends have done all that they
could since my departure to prevent this
unpleasan.t complication of my name. My
partner, Mr. Caldwell, has repudiated and
condemned it for me in and out of print.
What more could I have done ?
"I have done all that may become a man,
Who dares do more is none."
It could not be expected that I should
stand at the polls, armed with the club of
Hercules, to beat back men who might ap
proach with my name on their tickets. I
would be unwilling to resort to this des
perate expedient to avert a calamity great
er even than my election to the House of
Representatives. Men have the right, un
der the Constitution and laws of this coun
try, to vote for whom they please, and if
their choice happens to fill upon me and
they insist upon voting for me nolens vo
lens, I am not the man to spurn them for
it. I can only say that I think they have
displayed very questionable judgment
that they could have better voted for a
better man. I have never asked the col
ored people to vote for me for any office,
and I doubt very much if I shall ever have
occasion to do so, but I did importune
them, not ten months ago, very earnestly
to vote for other worthy gentlemen, and I
received the applause of all good men for
my endeavors in that behalf. I was invited
to all parts of the county to address them,
because it was supposed that they had some
confidence in me and might listen to .my
appeals in behalf of Hampton and home
rule. How much good I accomplished by
my speeches to them I leave to others to
say. If it was commendable in me to so
licit their votes for other persons of my
political faith, surely it can be no crime
for me now to receive their votes UNsoLuc
ITED. At all events, I do not feel dishon
ored by this manifestation of their confi
dence, and if they never do worse things
than vote for men of my way of thinking
the country will suffer no detriment from
With this explanation, I have no fears
of the verdict of the people of Newberry
as to my conduct. Respectfully,
C. H. SUBER.

Our Trip to Ninety-Six.
We left the beautiful and interesting lit
tle town of Prosperity on Friday morning
for (we will say) the city of Ninety Six ; it
is the fashion to call all towns cities. For
this reason and for fear of offending some
of the good people of Ninety-Six, we have
onformed to the fashion and call it a city.
We found the roads in some places almost
mpassable. We crossed quite a numrber of
bridges and found some of them in a very
precarious condition, which we were very
reluctant to cross, for fear of our precious
selves being lodged underneath. We crosse d,
hough, three rivers, Bush, Little and
Saluda's bridges without great peril. Crops
re looking generally well, and we enjoyed
tie sight of several fields of beautiful cot
on, and of peaches in the greatest abun
ance by the roadside. They look as if
hey were planted for the accommodation
f the fruit-loving travelers. We reached
inety-Six at six o'clock P. M., and met
with a most cordial and warm reception.
The good Methodist brethren were having
a District Conference at Ninety-Six, and on
Friday night we heard a most eloquer.t ser
on by Rev. Dickson, of Columbia. On
Saturday morning we started bright and
early to visit the Old Star Fort, situated
;ree miles from the city, near Old Cam
ridge. Drank sparkling water from the
ld Cambridge well, which made it doubly
dear to us on account of its interesting
istory. There is no trace left of Old
ambridge except one small cottage and
the old hotel, which looks as if it might
withstand the storm and tempest of anoth
er century. We found the Old Fort more
picturesque than our most vivid imagina
tion had ever portrayed. It is almost cov
ered with noble and majestic oaks. The
well inside the Fort is almost filled up with
rubbish. We visited the cave also, which
our soldiers struggled eo bravely for, but
did not venture inside of it. I would like
o tell you more of the Old Star Fort and
surroundings, but as my space is limited I
will desist. We returned from the Fort in
time for Conference, and heard an appro
priate address by Rev. Dickson in behalf of
Dolumbia Female College, which was fol
owed by 2rof. Duncan in behalf of Wof
ord College Saturday night we heard a
ood sermon by Rev. Mr. Pritchard, of
N5wberry, and after him prayer and ex
ortation by our good old brother Boyd,
which was very stirring, with one or two
amiliar old tunes, which we all love so
much to hear, and which carry us back in
memory to the good old camp-meetings.
abbath morning we repaired again to
Church and listened to a very deep and
learned sermon -by Bishop Wightman.
'he afternoon was devoted to the children
f the Sunday-School. Conference closed
Sunday nighlt with a sermon by Prof. Dun
an. Ninety-Six, on the whole, is a splen
did little city. Vb e not'ced some very
adsome residences. Most of the stores
are built of brick. It has one good hotel,
ept by Mr. Hale. Last, but not least of
the handsomle features, is the many fair
ldies and handsome and gallant beaux of
Ninety-Six. We met with quite a numbdr
f our quonldam friends and school-mates,
vho welcomed us in a miost cordial man
e, and made us feel that it was good to
e there. *.

FOR THE HERALD.
MESSRs. EnITros:-The first of the "Re
union Meetings" of the students and ex
students of Newberry College, was held a
Lexington C. H., on the 20th ult., and be
lieving that you and your many reader.
have an interest in the College, lately placec
in your midst, we hope that this meagrc
sketch (merely an epitome of the proceed.
ings) will be of interest. The meeting was
to be held, as above stated, on the 20th
ult., and in the Lutheran Church. A num.
ber of the students were in attendance at
4 o'clock P. M., and a business meeting was
immediately held for two purposes, to or
ganize an association to be known here
after as "Central Reunion," and to make
suitable preparations for the exercises in
the evening. Present at this meeting were
Messrs. J. B. O'N. Holloway, J. F. Hobbs,
S. 0. Kaminer, C. M. Efird, C. W. Welch,
Justus A. Miller, J. B. Wingard, Rev. G. A.
Hough, Prof. D. B. Busby and Dr. L. B.
Folk. Mr. Efird was called to the chair
and Mr. Holloway elected secretary. Sev
eral resolutions were passed, and next came
an election of officers. Dr. L. B. Folk was
elected President, C. W. Welch, Secretary,
S. 0. Kaminer, Treasurer. These officers
hold their positions one year. After an
harmonious meeting and of interest, the
house adjourned to meet at such time and
place as the officers may appoint.
Now, after we had transacted business,
we wanted to hear some speaking, and all
of us hastened to our homes-I say homes,
for the Lexingtonians made us feel as much
at home as if we were really within hear
ing of the gentle voices of our mothers and
loved ones-when we would soon be ready
to hear what our representatives had to say
for our College. It had been raining all
day, and the prospects for a full attendance
and lively occasion were not very pro
mising. We were still more fearful, when,
toward evening, the. rain came down in
torrents, and seemed more desirous to wash
us away than to give us a good season.
At 8 o'clock we repaired to the church
and soon discovered that the rain bad been
successful in preventing a full turnout. The
meeting failed ! But we were determined
not to leave the place till we had spoken a
few words in behalf of an institution which
had its origin in that quiet little town. So
we resolved to have a meeting next morn
ing-Saturday morning ; and early, yea,
before sunrise, we had a herald on the wing
proclaiming the news. At ten o'clock a
number of the villagers had taken their
seats in the church and the meeting was
opened with prayer by the Rev. G. A.
Then came the speaking, which was be
gun by Mr. J. B. O'N. Holloway, on "Edu
citionl, a blessing, and the want of it a
curse to every Nation." He proved beyond
a doubt, that where education had entered
the confines of 'a nation, progress and suc
cess were certain, but where superstition
and ignorance reigned, there was no hope
till the bright light of civilization had
burst the clouds of darkness and barbarity
and consumed the last fragment of these
Mr.: J. F. Hobbs next appeared to speak
a word for his Alma Mater on the subject
of "Home Education." He maintained that
we should educate our own rulers and not
suffer foreigners to come here and adminis
ter our laws. We had already suffered
too long, and shall we still continue to
make no effort to correct these errors. A
want of space will not permit us to make
any extended comments on the speech, but
suffice it to say that- it was an able effort,
and if heeded, South Carolina will rise to
the position she once held.
Mr. J. B. Wingard then followed in his
usual torcible way on the same theme. He,
too, evinced that our people needed educa
tion and entreated the parents to educate
their youth. He adjured the youth to con
sider the importance and seize the oppor
tunity. Mr. Wingard did himself credit,
and like the others left a profound impres
sion on the minds of his audience. May
that sensation trausform itself into d1eter
mination, and may many of Lexington's
sons enter the walls of our noble College to
reap the benefits of learning, and lift our
grand old Commonwealth from ruin to her

Address of the Executive Com
mittee State Agricultural
COLUMBIA, S. C., July 12, 1877.
The Executive Committee of the State
Agricultural and Mechanical Society
would respectfully call the attention of
its members and the people generally
to the meeting to be held at Anderson
Court House on the 8th of August next,
and urgeutly request a full attendance.
The object of the meeting is to re-or
ganize the Society, infuse new life into
it, and to give it an impetus which will
start it on its new career with a force
and spirit commensurate with the great
work it is designed to accomplish.
This great work is the restoration of
the agricultural interest of the State, the
source of its wealth and the basis of its
strength, to its former prominence-a
prominence which has been lost by its'
having been forced to bear the brunt of
the oppressive taxation imposed by an
unjust, tyrannical and hostile govern
ment, the demoralization of labor in
cident to the emancipation of the slave,
and his consequent exposure to the
inuence of the low demagogue; and
until recently by the utter hopelessness
of deliverance from those deep seated
evils, for at least many years to come;
a hopelessness that paralyzed the ener
gies of the people and made them
almost as poor in spirit as they are in
But the recent political revolution has
changed all this. The hopes of the
people have revived; they have been
relieved from oppressive and unjust
taxaion, and the low demagogue has
been taught that South Carolina is no
longer a field for his operations.
Farmers and Mechanics! the time
and place are conspicuous. With the
prestige of political success we meet at
old Anderson, whose bugle blasts first
summoned the hosts under the banner
of home rule and reform, and gave an
impetus to the great rgceergent which
resulted in datory uugaralleled in the
history of any people.
Let us meet then, upon this classic
sp.ot, and inaugurate a moven'eat in the
iiterests of Agriculture e h must
acieve a like success.

WAsHINGTON.-One of the noblest charac
teristics of the Father of his country, was
that in his boyhood when he had committed
an offense which was likely to bring the in
fliction of the sevesest punishment, he could
not tell a lie. I grieve to say that there are
reputable grocers and merchants who will
assure you that any other starch is as good
as the Duryeas'. The awards of the great
Centennial at Philadelphia have settled that
question, and they have proclaimed that as
against the starches of the world, there is
none equal to that manufactured by the Dur
yeas. They took the great medal at the
World's Exhibition, and they pronounced
their starch the best in the world. All re
spectable grocers keep it. Ask for Duryeas'
Improved Corn Starch, and Duryeas' Satin
Gloss Starch. Use it once and you will use
A Result of Obstructed Diges
Among the hurtful consequences of obstruct
ed digestion, is the impoverishment of the
blood, and since a deteriative condition of the
vital fluid notonly produces dangerous organ
ic weakness, but, according to the best medi
cal authorities, sometimes causes asphyxia, it
is apparent that to improve the quality of the
blood by promoting digestion and assimila
tion, is a wise precaution. Hostetter's Stom
ach Bitters is precisely the remedy for this
purpose, since it stimulates the gastric juices,
conquers those bilious and evacuative irreg
ularities which interfere with the digestive
processes, promotes assimilation of the food
by the blood, and purifies as wellias enriches
it. The signs of improvement in,health in
consequence of using the Bitters are speedily
apparent in an accession of vigor, a gain in
bodily substance, and a regular and active
performance of every physical function.
