Lowly bowed the golden head,
Reverently bent the dimpled knee,
And the sweet lips softly said,
"Gentle Jesus pity me."
Pity thee, oh! sin!ess child,
Kneeling in thy robes so white!
Yes, a Saviour meek and mild,
Hears the baby's prayer to-night.
And bright spirits He will send,
Guardian angels they will be,
Jesus is the children's friend,
He will love and pity thee.
How oft through life's long chequered way,
When tossing o'er life's troubled sea,
World-worn pilgrims sadly say,
"Gentle Jesus, pity me."
When from His fold we chance to stray,
Of His commands forgetful be,
Let us like baby softly pray,
"Gentle Jesus, pity me." MAGGIE.

To the Editor of the Journal of
My attention has been directed to a
paragraph in your issue of the 1st
iust., relative to. the further payment
of the depositors of the Citizen's Sav
ings Bank, bankrupt.
The facts are just these: We have
paid forty-seven and one-half per cent.
of the liabilities, and we have some of
the assets still left. We are using all
the best means in our power to declare
another dividend, but all of our largest
claims are now in court and we cannot
attempt another dividend until they
We can but appreciate the import
ance of the depositors at not receiving
a dividend, but they must remember
that all the easily collected claims
were paid in first, with which we paid
the first three dividends in about
The bank closed in December, 1873;
in June, 1874, we paid the first divi
dend of 25 per cent., in the following
September the second dividend of 12i
per cent. was paid, and the third divi
dend of 10 per cent.. was declared in
August, 1875, making a total of forty
seven and one-half per cent. It has
been over two years since the last divi
dend, and we are not ready to pay any
more at present. We will have to ask
the depositors to wait, we cannot say
how long-for they are waiting on the
process of law, not on us.
There was no receiver appoitited,
but I was elected trustee by the cred
itors to act under a committee of cred

-RooK HILL, S. C., November 23.
At half-past three this afternoon the
northward bound passenger train on
the C. C. & A. R. R., was precipita
ted into South Fork Creek, ten miles
south of this place, by the giving way
of the trestle, in consequence of the
foundation having been undermined
by the freshet in the creer. The en
gine and tender passed over safely,
the structure falling just when the
express and passenger cars were well
The express car turned upon its
side in four feet of water. The two
passenger coaches dropped into the
middle of the running stream till only
about one foot of the tops were visible.
There were eighteen passengers aboard.
James McLaughlin, of Charlotte, was
drowned in one of the cars.
Most of the passengers escaped
through the windows of the oches
and lodged themselves in the trees.
They were rescued after, in some cases,
hours of suffering.
The Western bound train on the
Air Line Railroad, ran into a wash
out between Charlotte anid Greenville
Friday afternoon. The engineer,
Smith, was killed, and the fireman
hurt. No other casualties.
Hon. B. F. Crayton, President of
the State Fair Association, sold his
entire crop of bread-corn to Gen. W.
G. LeDuc, United States Com.mission
er of Agriculture. This corn will be
distributed throughout the United
States for seed. Gen. Le Duc said it
was as fine quality of this important
cereal as he had ever seen, and thereby
paid a high compliment to Mr. Cray
ton as an agieiu!turist. After this,
our people should raisz their own corn,
and not imnport it from the West. If
we can raise seed for other States, we
certainly should be able to wake enough
to do us at home. A smaller amount
of cotton and a larger amount of grain
would make this a most prosperous

A PAPER FOR THE PEOPLE.

ily Newspaper, devoted to the iaterial in
terests of the people of this County and the
State. It circulates extensively, and as an
Advertising medium offers unrivalled ad
vantages. or Terms, see first page.
The Public Debt.
The most troublesome matter
the Legislature will have to deal
with is the public debt. It is a
matter that calls for wise and bold
statesmanship. The legislator who
is afraid of giving offence and be
coming unpopular, who looks to
his constituents for guidance here,
is not fit to represent regenerated
Carolina. No matter how the ques
tion be settled there will be dissat
isfaction. There are those who
call loudly for wholesale repudia-.
tion, and others who say pay the
debt; and save the State's credit,
and others still who advise a middle
course. Those who advise the mid
dle course, that is, the payment of
the bona fide debt and the repudia
tion of the fraudulent, are right in
theory; but how to put that theory
into practice is the.trouble-how to
separate the honest debt from the
fraudtlent; they are so mingled to
gether that one is not distinguish
able from the other. And if they
are distinguishable at all, the Legis
latore is best prepared to make the
distinction. The committee charged
at the last session with the duty of
investigating the public debt have
no doubt done thorough work, and
are pi'epared to sabieit at the pres
ent session the best plan of dis
posing of this troublesome ques
tion. To that icommnittee,' and to
the Legislature at large, we must
give the credit of possessing the
necessary honesty, ability and pa
triotism to do what is right to the
State and to its creditors. The
people having sent their represen
tatives to the Legislature should
allow them to dispose of all public
matters as they see fit ; they have
no right to instruct them to do this
or to do that-to repudiate the
debt, or to pay it, and the legislator
who has not the boldness and inde
pendence to form his own opinion
and direct his own actions had bet
ter stay at home.' Therefore, we
think the plan adopted in some
counties of instructing their repre
sentatives what course to pursue
in reference to the public debt is
altogether improper. If the repre
sentatives are fit men they.-know
much better what course ought to
be pursued than the people at
large. We put our trust in the
Legislature~and doubt not that they
will settle this and every other
question that comes before them
for the best interests of the State,
unbiased by partisan prejudice and
unmoved by popular clamior or ap

We have received the reply of
Gen. Butler to Corbin in the con
tested case in the United States
Senate. The reply was filed by
T. J. Mackey, of counsel for Gen.
The reply is confined to two
points : 1st, That the question as
to what number of persons shall
constitute the House of Represen
tatives of the State of South Caro
lina, and the number of members
o such House necessary to consti
tute a quorum thereof, are ques
tions that arise solely under the
Constitution of the said State, and
as such involve no Federal issue.

The following is an extract from a
letter of an enterprising M. D., in the
upper part of our County to a friend
in the eastern part, to which we call
special attention. In Orangeburg, and
in the Eastern Counties of the State,
the growing of chufas is no new thing,
and from reliable sources we learn the
great benefits to be derived in fatten
ing hogs, thus strengthening the
opinion entertained by the gentleman
whose views are herewith appended.
We understand that in the vicinity
of Pomaria several farmers planted
this year, and the fattening quality
is clearly demonstrated by the large,
fat, black porkers to be seen from the
train in a patch near the depot.
"I assure you the chufa is a grand
success. It is a perfect gold mine to
the South. They are far superior to
any other new stock feed that we have
been experimenting with in the South.
They are no longer an experiment, but
a fact. We can now raise all the hogs
we want in the South. They fill up
the want that was felt in the South
a substitute for corn for hogs. Their
chemical analysis proves the superiority
of their fattening properties.
"I think of writing an article, pro.
bably for the Register, setting forth
their merits as a stock food, &c., which
I think would induce many persons to
cultivate them, for I verily believe
they are one of the important links to
the prosperity of the South."
Onx CENT A DA!-Economy is the order
of the thour, and every expenditure, however
small, is expected to give a return in full
value. Every family requires one good, re
liable family newspaper. If such an article
can be procured for less than one cent for
each working day of the year, we are not
aware of it. A Family Newspaper should
contain a carefully prepared summary of all
the news of the day, both Religious and Sec
ular; and if arranged-so that the two depart
ments mnay be separated and read by two
individuals at the same time, so much the
better. The Family Newspaper should have
attractive reading and information for the
various members of a household. Some por
tion of the paper should be devoted, every
week, to religious and moral improvement,
to eurrent secular news, to agriculture, com
merce, markets, finance, to general litera
ture, &c., with a special department for the
young. Above all, the Family Newspaper]
should be perfect!y pure, and free from any
contaminating influences in its reading mat
ter or in its advertisements. Too much at
tention cannot be paid to this feature, when
the press is flooding the country with so
much that is vile and pernicious. To crown
all, the Family Newspaper should be un
trammelled by any afmliation with sect or
party, and should be free to give all the good
news from and about all the world. If such
a Family Newspaper can be had for one cent
a day, it should be taken by every family in

WASUINOTON, D. C.,
Nov. 21, 1877. t
The work of the extra session is about
orapleted. The Army bill and the Navy
eficiency bill have passed, and Mr. Gox of
,ew Yo: k vesrtiday assured the passage of
he Paris Exposition bill by a witty speech
gainst it. This inimitable humorist puts 1
11 parties in the best of humor and the
ongressional heart is never so open to an
ppeal for an appropriation as when the
',ngressman is cheerful. Gox should never
ppose an appropriation unless he wishes
o help it along. Dyspeptic men like Ed
unds, Holman and E. B. Washburne, who
ever laugh heartily, are the men who kill
The work of the session has not all been
ausfactorily done. If anything was to be
aid of the strength of the Army-if any
hing was to be done more than to vote the
iecessary money-the force ought to have
>een reduced and re-organized. But this
nay be accomplished at the regular session.
The proposed bargaining of which I wrote
iou, and by which Patterson, Chamberlain,
Wells, Anderson and the rest are to escape
unishment, is now discussed in the papers.
)n the one side it gives immunity to the
persons above named and many more, and
)n the other it secures clemency to several
.housand persons in the South who are
accused of violating the Ku Klux laws, and
who are liable to be tried at any time.
Judge Mackey, of South Carolina, is the
prophet of the proposition, and claims that
all the leading Southern men are favorable
to it. He says Hayes favors it. It is the
most extraordinary bargain, I think, ever
suggested. This wholesale pardoning of
criminals of all degrees, while many States,
like Pennyslvac.ia and Maine, for instance,
are restricting the pardoning powers in in
dividual cases, has something amazing in it.
The great subsidy schemes for the benefit
of the Texas Pacific Railroad, the Missis
sippi Levees, a Brazilian Steamship line,
&c., have not been urged during the extra
session. Their lobbies have not been here.
Winter and the regular session will bring
It is thought the case of Spofford and

rely upon Senators enough to insure Kel
logg his seat. In the South Carolina case,

to get a vote at an early day, and the pro
baility i. that neither will be admitted.
Senator Conkling's Committee has not
reported the New York Custom House
nominations, and shows no disposition to.
Wh ile the session lasts the Senttor's friends
hold their places. After adjournment, Mr.
Hayes may, if he chooss, make new ap
pointments and the Senator's friends give
place to them. Perhaps Senator Conkling
would like to have Hayes do that, or thinks
he will not dare do it.
Maine's first contribution to the Gallery
of Statues ar the Capitol was placed in
position yesterday. Very properly the mem
ory of her first Governor is thus hmnored,
and a gentleman who knew Governor King
tells me that the artist-Simmons-has been
very successful in his work. The States
are not forwvarding as rapidly as was ex
pected, or as is desirable, their contribu

lined the German Mission. Hie will prac
tiee law in this City. Mr. Schurz, who, also,
is a free-thinker, can now go to Geraniy if
he gives up his Cabinet position.
A desperate fight is being made against
the confirmation of [H. W. Hilliard, ap
pointed Minister to Brazil. It is a petty
nd scandalous fight, too, and the Senate
ought to hasten the confirmation to prevent
American citizens from lurther degrading
theiselves iu such manner. Not a mau of
tanding or consequence has so far attacked
the private character of Mr. illiard ; but
vagrants and bummiers have done it per
istatly and the Senate is listening to them.

We were exposed last week to a
pitiless storm, that wet our feet and
stockings, and indeed our person all
over. In fact we took a cracking
cold, which brought sore throat and
severe symptoms of fever. The good
wife asserted her authority, plunged
our feet in hot water, wr->pped us in
hot blankets, and sent'our faithful son
for a bottle of AYER'S CHERRY PEC
TORAL. It is a splendid medicine
pleasant to take, and did the job. We
slept soundly through the night and
awoke well the next morning. We
know we owe our quick recovery to
the Pectoral, and shall not hesitate to
recommend it to all who need such a
medicine.--Tehuacana (Texas) Pres
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 ot'er, be
cause it is the most economical ever manu
factured in. the world. It is the mosteconom
ical because it is the best; it is the cheapest
because it is the best. It is purer, whiter,
and stronger than any other starch. It has
received the highest award over all competi
tors in the four quarters of the globe. Don't
be deceived by your grocer. Ask for Duryeas'
Improved Corn Starch for food, and Dnryeas'
Satin Gloss Starch for laundry purposes, and
take no other.
NOW AND THEN.
It Is only now and then that such men as
Hon. Alex. H. Stephens, Ex-Gov. Smith and
Ex-Gov. Brown of Ga., endorse a medicine
for throat and lungs, and when they do it is
pretty good evidence that the remedy must
be good for the cure of coughs, colds and
lung affections. They recommend the GLOW E
FLOWER COor SYiUP, and their testimno
nials are to be seen roud the ten cent sample
bottles of the Globe Flower Syrup, for sale
by all druggists in Newberry. A. sample
bottle relieve:s the wor.,t cough and will

A VERY GOOD) REASON.
The reason why only one sample bottle of
MERRELL'S HEPATINE for the Liver will be
sold to the same person, for ten cents, by
our Druggists, is because of the enor;nous
expense ot' importing the Hepatiue into this
country; but as~ there are fifty doses in the
large size bot tles, it seems two cents pet dose
is cheap enough after all for a med icine that
cures dyspepsia and liver complaint. Alil who
bave not had a sample botte are entitled to
one for ten cts. at all dr ug stores in NTew

pepsia, constipation, indigestion or liver com-.

BTATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA,
COUNTY OF NEWBERRY.
IN T HE COURT OF PROBATE.
benezer P. Chalmers, as Administrator of
the Estate of Sumnmerlield Montgomery,
de'd., with the Will annexed, Plaintiff,
against Susan Montgomery, Defendant.
By virtue of an order from the Frobate
~ourt for Newberry County, in the above
*tated ease to me directed, I will sell, at
,ublic outcry, at Newberry Court House,
) the First Monday in .December
rithin the legal hours of sale, and to the
ighest hidder, all that lot or parcel of land
ituated in the town of Newberry, bounded
n the North by lot of John S. Renwick,
n the South and East by lot of C. & G. S.
lower, and on the Westby Adams Street,
mdnaining ONE H-IALF ACRE, more or
The Newberry News.
We, thn underiigned, being fully per
SUaLdel that the intelligence, wealth and
industry of Newberry will sustain two good
papers, respectfully in rorm the citizens that
on or about the first of January next. pur
poset publishing a newspaper to be called
the NEWVBERRY NEWS. While it is pre
ferable not to parade a prospectus, custom
renders it necessary that we outline or fore
shadow our course. Be it understood at the
outset that our chins are not yet hardened
either against the humanities or the barber's
blade; yet, having sat Gamaliel-like at the
feet of Faust during the trying transition,
we feel not altogether unfamiliar with the
new needs of the newspaper world. Our
principle is that ofsimple Democracy, which
shall carry us into a crusade for a restora
tion (full and final) of local self-government,
State relegation of rights, and that elegant
simplicity in the national polity which
made the Republican Court of Washington
and Jefferson so conspicuous for far-reach
Realizing the fact that continued and in
dreasing prosperity depend upon labor and
capital, with justice and equity. we shall set
ourselves as a wall of adamant against all
rings, cliques and cabals that may ariso to
distract and overturn County, State or Na
tional councils simply to gratify personal
prejudice or to satisfy a selfish appetite. As
even-handed justice is an undying and en
nobling principle, the agricultural, mechan
ical, mercantile and professional elements
shall receive at our hands their rights as
honored and essential entities, whose indi
vidual and collective services, upon noble
bases, can alone build up and perpetuate a
true community of Interest.
Addressing ourselves first to the pleasant
task of advancing the varied interests of
the Town and County of Newberry, and
then the State, "from its centre all arouud
to the sea," we shall not forget our quota
towards broadening the national integrity.
As mone:, no less than mind and muscle,
nerve and conscience, are the factors in suc
cessful journalism, we shall endeavor to use
the latter in order to obtain the former.
We shall strive to go into the splendid future
that awaits a chivalric and magnanimous
course, having Faith in our work.
