Amount of Taxable Property in
the County .-Democratic
The value of all taxable real pro
perty in the county is. $2,855,500.
The value of all taxable personal
property, as assessed by the present
Auditor, is $1,076,400. Total value,
real and personal, $3,931,900. This
assessment is for the fiscal year
1877-8. The assessment of per
sonal property for 1876-7, by the
preceding Auditor, was $996,556

10 mills on that-the probable tax
of next year-would make $798.44
saved. That is saving No. 1.
The number of polls assessed by
the late Auditor was 2,159; by the
present Auditor, 3,940-a gain of
1,781 polls, representing $1,781
saved. That is saving No. 2.
Salary of the present Auditor,
$600; salary - of his predecessor,
$1,250. Saving No. 3, $650.

Auditor, $400; under his predeces

Oliver P. Morton, U. S. Senator
froma Indiana, died at his home in
Indianapolis, the 1st inst. Senator
Morton was born in Wayne County,
Indiana, in 1823 ; graduated at the
Miami University ; studied and
practiced law ; was elected Circuit
Judge in 1852; Lieutenant-Gover
nor in 1860, becoming Governor in
1861, when Gov. Lane was chosen
to the U. S. Senate ; elected Gov
ernor in 1864; elected to the U. S.
Senate in 1866, as a Union :Repub
lican ; was re-elected in 1872. His
term would have expired March 3,
1879. Morton was an extreme IRe
publican and was popularly known
as the leader of the "bloody-shirt
policy." By his death the Repub
licans lose one member and the
Democrats gain one in the Senate.
Gov. Williams will appoint a Demo
crat to fill the unexpired term.
Were the Judges Properly
The Constitution, Art. 2, Sec. 24,
directs that in all elections by the
General Assembly the members
shall vote viva voce. But Art. 4,
Sec. 13, provides that each Circuit
Judge shall be elected by joint bal
lot. All the judges now in office,
except Judge Kershaw, were elect
ed viva voce ; Judge Kershaw was
elected at the last session by ballot.
By Joint Resolution the General
Assembly at its last session directed
the Attorney-General to institute
proceedings in the Supreme Court
to test the validity of the election
of those judges who were voted for
viva voce. Accordingly the Attor
ney-General has selected the case of
Judge Shaw (Dem.) as a test, and
the Supreme Court will decide the
question at an early day.
Over 2,000 bales of cotton were
sold in Spartanburg for the week
ending October 27th, 500 being
sold one day. The same week
2,148 bales were sold in Greenville,
519 in one day. Yet neither of
these places is in the "cotton belt"
and neither was known as a cotton
market till a few years ago. The
only explanation of these large
sales is that both these places have
superior railroad facilities. New
The Treasurer's Salary.
Retrenchment is right and pro
per, but it ought not to be carried
too far. We think the Legislature
overdid the thing when they fixed
the salaries of the County Treasu
rers. The Treasurer of this Coun
ty gets $800. That is not enough
for the time, labor and responsibili
ty that the position requires. Treas
urers of Newberry County during
the Radical regime got about $2,
500. That is too much, of course.
The sum of $1,200 or $1,500 would
be a reasonable compensation.
While Newberry wants to be econ
omical in her public affairs, yet she
is willing to pay her public servants
what their services are worth. And
this is no doubt the sentiment of
It is cheering to note the signs
of prosperity in different parts of
the State, the reports of which
come through accounts of success
ful County Fairs. A community
which can afford to devote its time,
energies and money to enterprises
outside their shops and offices, and
which tend to the general advance
ment, benefit and pleasure of the
whole people, show an unselfish
ness highly to be commended and
that the expressed desire to reform
and overcome past evils were not
idle words. We are pleased to no
tice that Anderson, Greenville, Ab
beville, Union, Cheraw, Darlington
and Orangeburg have proved that
there is life in the old land yet, and
that their citizens can work as well
The Divorce Law. -
The Keowee (Walhalla) Courier
wants the Legislature to repeal the
divorce law. In this State there
are only two grounds for divorce
adultery, and desertion for two
The Courier says; "The Mosaic
law allowed divorce for one cause
only, and this we regard was abro
gated by the New Testament."~ We
don't propose to have a theological
discussion with the Courier, but we
believe that divorce on that ground
is still in consonance with the Di
vine law, and should be allowed by
human law. That, however, is the
only ground that justifies it.
A plan is on foot in New York to
restrict the right of suffrage to
those who pay tax on $500 worth
of property or who pay an annual
rent of $250. The measure is advo
cated by the rich Republicans, who
have held several public meetings
on the subject. As the working
classes and nearly the whole of the
Democratic party are opposed to
it, it stands little chance of being
adopted by the Legislature.
Adjutant-General Moise, during
the campaign last fall, promised
from the stump that if elected he
would give a year's salary to the
public schools. October 23d he
gave the Superintendent of Educa
tion his check for the balance of
this year's salary.

FOR THE HERALD.
Our Washington Letter.
WASHINGTON, D. C.,
Oct. 31, 1877.
The political events of yesterday were
the announcement of the House committees
by Speaker Randall, and the presentation
of nearly one thousand bills and resolutions
in the House.
The committees are in some sense a sur
prise to all, but, to most, will be an agree
able surprise. The personal feelings of
-Mr. Randall are exhibited less than was
thought probable in the composition of the
important committees, and he has evidently
done his best to put the working material
of the House where it will do. the most
good to the country. The chairmanships
are on the whole judiciously distributed,
though New England with five Democratic
representatives gets none.
I suppose that never before was such a
number of bills and resolutions presented
in one day. Another opportunity will not
be had for a week, and numbers seemed to
have thought the only hope of securing
action on their measures at the extra session
would be in presenting them as soon as
possible. Among the more important of
them was a bill appropriating money to aid
in our representation at the Paris-Exposi
tion next year; to revive the Alabama
Claims Commission ; reducing rate of pos
tage to two cents ; repealing tenure of office
act ; for the removal of all political disa
bilities ; to simplify existing laws for collect
ing duties on imports ; making the Depart
ment of Agriculture one of the Executive
Departments; to repeal the act providing
for resumption of specie payments ; to make
U. S. Notes receivable for duties on im
ports; and one appropriating three million
dollars for the levees of the Mississippi
In the Senate nothing was done. The
Louisiana Senatorial contest, in Committee
on Elections, promises to be very long and
Mr. Hayes yesterday sent in for confirma
tion the name of E. WV. Stoughton as Mimiis
ter to Russia. Thus, of the men who
managed his case before the Electoral Com
mission, three are in high office by his
assistance-Evarts, Matthews and Stough
ton. All the members of the Florida Return
ing Board have Federal office from him,
and also t.he two managing members -Wells
and Anderson-of the Louisiana Returning
Board. Th':s reform marches on ini the
civil service. By the wvay, Evarts received
his former appoi'ntment as Attorney-Gen:eral
by reaaon of is defence of Andrew John
son in the impeachment trial.
The Senate confirms from day to day a
few appointments that are not objectionable
to any one, but has not commenced on the
main body of them.
Representative Foster, of Ohio, says that
he and Hale, of Maine, are the parties who
caused Republicans to gather two or three
times at the house of Secretrry Sherman to
agree upon means of averting open rupture
in the House. The resolution endorsing
the policy of 'Hayes wvas not offered yester
day in' the House,- though it was thought
some Democrat would offer it. Many Demo
crats, as well as the Republicans, seem to
wish the resolution kept back.
The population of this district is about
140,000 ; its property, at a high valuation
for assessment purposes, is put at ninety
millions of dollars; its debt, bonded and
floating, is nearly if not quite thirty millions.
New York with seven times our population,
a hundred times oar wealth, and a thousand
times our trade, has only 'a debt between
three and four times as large as ours. Our
debt was created by Republican appintees
of Grant, and not by men elected to office
by our citizens. We wish it inquired into
at the earliest possible day by Congress.
This morning Mr. Hayes and party started
for Richmond, where the people have pre
pared to receive him grandly. There is to
be an election in Virginia, but as there are
no Republican candidates in the field, there
is no one who remembering Ohio, might
object to the trip. His presence cannot
defeat a Republican party where no such
party exists. In the winter he goes to New
FOE THE HERALD.
SMOKEY TowN, Nov. 3, 1877.
DEAR HERALD: The farmers have been
quite busy gathering their crops, such as
King Cotton, corn, peas, and making the
sorghum and putting in the oats. Cotton,
corn, pea and sorghum crop are good.
Some of the farmers have made one bale
of cotton per acre ; corn is exceedingly
good, one young farmer making thirty-five
bushels of corn to the acre on poor up
land ; that is good for high. That young
farmer is making a high strike-wants to
be joined in wedlock's sweetest joy. You
will not be surprised to hear of his mar
riage and that soon, as marrying seems to
be all the go now-a-days in Smokey Town.
The farmers are all in lively spirits and
hope to be better off yet, as we have but
one more carpet-bagger holding forth in
Newberry County, and certainly he will
hand in his resignation. The sweet potato
crops are very good, I think. Mr. Boland
has the largest I ever saw ; so large that
'he had to prize them out of the row with a
rowbar. Some one said he had to drive
iron spikes in them, put a lock chain round
'and get his good neighbor Wise's yoke of
oxen to draw just or.e up to Brown &
Moseley's Steam Mill and have it ripped up
before it was ready for family use. So
your readers can imagine what the size
was. That potato takes the shine off Mr.
Longshore's potato. Mr. B. is a good far
mer, but he is better on raising potatoes
than anything else. He is running a tan
nery and he is a splendid tanner and makes
that and potatoes specialties. Mr. Gromer
lost nearly all of his potatoes by night
walkers. But what signifies the loss of a
few in such potato country as this ? If any
of your up-country farmers want to get any
of them for seed for next Spring they had
better send in their orders at an early date,
while the roads are firm. I tell you, dear
Ed., we have a good old time down here.
'You shall hear again after the potato crops
ar properly housed. 0. K.
We would like much to see some of those
potatoes. Seeing is believing.

FOR THE HERALD.
SHADY GROVE, NEAR BATESBURG,
Oct. 29th, 1877.
We have just returned from a very fa
vorite spot of ours in the -piney-woods,
known as Bartley Spring School-house,
where we had the pleasure of meeting our
good old friend and brother Mark Boyd,
who preached for us there on Sunday
morning and evening to a very large and
attentive congregation. Uncle Mark was
full of the Holy Spirit's power, and preach
ed with much liberty. His sermon in the
morning was full of love and sympathy,
and will doubtless prove to many a savor
of life unto life. Evening services were
full of pathos; six were added to the
Church; penitents bowed at the feet of
Jesus and cried aloud for mercy ; many
were made happy in a Saviour's love, and
with their faces radiant with the sunshine
of a glorified Redeemer, proved to the
world that there is a reality in the religion
of the Lord Jesus Christ; and while this
good work was going on we were not sur
prised to hear the voice of the good old
veteran of the Cross above all the rest
praising his Master for the manifestations
of His Holy Spirit. Bartley Spring School
house is surely a favorite spot, not only
with us but with many others who repair
there Sabbath after Sabbath for the purpose
of receiving the benefits of thn. gospel and
to learn more of the meek and lowly Jesus.
'Tis situated near Capt. Werts', on a
beautiful hill, and is surrounded by huge
oaks and pines-an excellent place to build
a church. We hope the good people will
use all diligence in raising money for that
purpose. We thank Uncle Mark for his visit,
an' say to him, we will not forget it soon
and hope that he will come again.

He had not slept a wink for twenty
four hours, coughing all the time. His
sister bought a 25 cent bottle of Dr.
Bull's Cough Syrup at the nearest drag
store, gave him a dose, and the cough
was broken at once and he slept quietly
during the night.
The Russian Court invited Dr. Ayer
and his family to the Archduke's wed
ding in the Royal Palace. This dis
tinction was awarded to him not only
because he was an American, but also
because his name as a physician had
become favorably known in Russia on
its passage round the world.

ECONOMY IS WEALTH,
Poor Richard says. If this be true, then it
is wise in every family to use Duryeas's Satin
Gloss Starch in preference to any other, be
cause it is the most economical ever manu
factured in the world. It is the most econom

because it is the best. It is purer, whiter,
and stronger than any other starch. It has
received the highest award over all competi
