The Herald is in the highest respect a Fain

State. It circulates extensively, and as an

Our New York correspondent, J.

The Newspaper as an Eduea
What we shall say on this sub
ject is not intended to recommend
this paper or any other in particu
lar, but newspapers in general. So
important has the newspaper be
come that it has received in England
the appellation of the "Fourth Es
tate of the Realm," being placed
alongside the King, Lords and Com
mons in influence and power. In
this country it is-equally powerful.
The best newspapers are the lead
ers of public opinion, exercising an
- unbounded influence upon the pub
lic mind in all matters of public in
terest. But great as it is as a
source of power, it is still greater
as a source of information. A per
son who reads the papers regularly
acquires a rich store of knowledge ;
he keeps himself informed on the
current topics of the day, and knows
what is taking place in the world
around him. He is learning the
two most important branches of
knowledge, history and geography.
It is really astonishing to see how
little our young men and boys
know of the present and immediate
past. They can tell you the names
of the Kings and Emperors of
Rome, and of the Kings of England;
they know the causes and the his
tory of the English and the French
Revolutions, but are utterly igno
rant in regard to the most impor
tant events connected with their
own and other countries during
their lifetime. This is a defect in
education. By a few minute's de
votion daily, or weekly even, to a
good newpaper one acquires an im
mense stock of information of the
most important and interesting
character. If one does not keep
abreast of the times from youth up,
he had as well been born grown.
This is a matter that deser':es the
serious consideration of every father
and teacher. Let any father gather
his boys around him at night ; tell
them to lay aside their Latin and
Greek a few minutes ; ask them
who are President and Vice-Presi
dent, who are our U. S. Senators,
our Congressmen, our State offi
cers, County officers, and so on,
and see if they are not ignorant on
these everyday matters. Then, let
him ask himself whether his boys
are being properly educated.
In our own day have transpired
events that will go to make history
for our great-grand-children-events
of momentous interest-the Ameri
can Civil War of 1861-5, the Prus
sian and Austrian War of 1866, the
Franco-German War of 1870-1, the
Turko-Rassian War of 1877-8, the
Grand Presidential Campaign of
1876, the Electoiral Commission, by
which a candidate was made Presi
dent who was not elected, the re
demption of South Carolina from
the rule of the carpet-bagger-all
these, and many other events that
have recently occurred will form in
exhaustible themes for the future
historian, and the readers of the
21s Centur will pore over them
Argonautic Expedition. And why?
Simply because they have been con
tent to live in ignorance, or have
been TOO STINGY TO PAY A FEW DOL
LARS FOR A NEWSPAPER.
Every school and college should
require the pupils to study contem
poraneous history-provide good
newspapers, and make them a spe
cial branch of instruction. How
else will the boys ever learn the
history of their own times? As
these events occur the newspapers
record them, and if we do not learn
them there we lose them forever;
for the historian who shall write
them will belong to a future genera
tion. The value of a good newspa
per is inestimable.

FOR THE HERALD.
Our Washington Letter.
WASHINGTON, D. C.,
Fub'y 6, 1878.
If the Democratic majority in the
House should determine in advance
upon a reduction of five, ten or fifteen
per cent. from last year's expenses of
evei-y department of the Government,
and should judiciously selet the
items on which the principal reductions
should be made, not an interest of
the Government would suffer. And
it seems as if no reduction could be
expected unless it is thus agreed upon
and made a paity measure. Every
Committee report suggesting a nore
economical administration of any
branch of the service has so far been
denounced by a united Republican
party, and almost always Democrats
enough sympathize with extravagance
and plunder, or have local interests to
take care of, to make the passage of
any measure of economy a matter of
doubt. On this subject the, impor
tance of which cannot be overrated,
there is not only the want of harmony
indicated above in Congress, but
apathy at the White House. Except
in getting generalities the head of the
Goveinment has said nothing. No
member of the Cabinet. except Secre
tary Sherman, has taken strong
ground for reduction of expenses, and
no doubt sought in that way personal
popularity at the expense of the other
heads of departments.
J. Madison Wells was registered at
a hotel here the other evening, and a
man at the hotel office told all inquir
ing friends that the great King maker
had gone to the house of Senator Kel
logg. Senator Kellogg's bell was rung
that night by every Washington news
paper man not in the secret. Inqui
ries were frequently made at the
White House, also, but Wells had not
been there. By the way, one thinks
of the White House involuntarily
whenever these Returning Board men
are the subject of discussion. Wells,
it is now saidl, who has just surren
dered in New Orleans, expects a jury
more favorable to him now that his
trial cannot take place in January.
Anderson's case is not decided, but
will be this week, probably. It seems
hard to pnnish these people, who re
ceived nothing more than a smail of
fce in a Custom House, while the
highest position in the country is filled
by a man who, but for the crimes for
which they are being tried, would now
be a private citizen.
There was, last night, it is said, a
meeting of "visiting statesmen" in
luding Stanley Matthews, Sherman
and Garfield, of Ohio, and Zack Chan
dler's son-in-law, of Maine, to consider
what should be done if, as has been
reported, they or any ofl them should
be indicted for complicity in those
Louisiana frauds. The~ meeting was
In tbe Senate yesterday Mr. Bay
ard made the most forcible speech of
the sesion 'against the Bland bill.
He concluded by saying he was wil
ling to permit the free coinage of the
silver dollar of 4124 grains, and to
make it a legal tender to a limited ex
tent, but to do more than this meant
national bankruptcy and nothing else.
n the House a resolution to suspend
the rules and adopt a resolution favor
ng an income tax, received 165 votes,
gainst 88. This was an unexpectedly
large vote, and indicates that if a bill
>f the kind comes squarely before the
ouse it will receive a two-thirds vote.
There has come with Francis Mur
phy to this city the same influence
which seems to have accompanied him
lsewhere. On Saturday night a
neeting was advertised at Lincoln
Rall, the largest in the District.
Soon another had to be organized, and
;hen another, at all of which Murphy
spoke. For various reasons, among
hem the opposition of a portion of
he clergy and a carefully disseminated
itory that the lecturer was merely
ercenary and did not speak, unless
de was assured of two or three hun
Ired dollars per night, the first meet
.ngs were not full. They are now the

The undersigned members of the
Grand Jury of said County would

desire to make special mention of the
County Auditor's faithful performance
of his duties : that they find the books

regard him as entirely free from blame
therefor as he has only been in posses

find the present
CLERK OF COURT
of General Sessions and Common Pleas
keeping his office in proper order;
they further find that Thomas M. Lake,
late Clerk, has failed to turn over, to
either of his successors, the moneys
of said office, as required by law, and
they recommend that the Solicitor
at once take such action as may be ne
cessary to have the law complied with.
They further find that all of the
County officers have deposited the
moneys in their hands as requested
by law. That they have not had op
portunity to examine into the manner
in which the various
of the County have discharged their
duties, with the exception of those
risident in the Town of Newberry,
who have done so in a satisfactory
That they find the
of the County in bad condition, and
recommend that the County Commis
sioners give them immediate attention.
That they find the

comfortably eared for. They further
find the building needing some re
pairs, especially in the foundation at
the South-western corner and in the
rough-cast at the South-eastern cor

pairs are needed in the

that the present Keeper is remedying

cases coming before them arise from

INTOXICATING LIQUORS AND FIRE
They desire to state that, in their opin
ion, it would be of incalculable benefit
to the State and County if the traffic
in liquors of all kinds were .restrained
within the smallest limits by proper
legislation, and that the least change
in the present law which would result
in any good would be the repeal of the
quart and retail licenses. They are
further cf the opinion that the Statute
relative to carrying concealed weapons
should be more rigidly enforced.
They further find
a growing evil in the County, and
that, in their opinion, the present
Statute in relation thereto should be
so amended as to provide a certain
and definite punishment for the of
They, therefore, respectfully pre
sent all these matters for the attention
and consideration of the Court.

You are, no doubt, coirect in desig
nating whiskey and pistols as the chief
causes of crime. It is so not only
here, but elsewhere in the State. In
regard to carrying concealed weapons,
there is no law in this State, gentle
men, that prohibits it. The habit of
carrying arms, which is so common, is
a discredit to our civilization. Cer
tain circumstances surrounding our
people during the recent past have
produced this habit. The habit ig
not gentlemanly, is not Christian, yet
some gentlemen and Christians feel it
necessary to their personal protection
in the present condition of the coun
try. I have had a varied experience,
have passed through a great deal, and
over one year ago stood, as you all did,
on the brink of a civil war ; yet have
never found it either necessary or de
sirable to be armed except while serv
ing in the war. Experience teaches
that there is no necessity for arms if
one is cool, collected and self-restrain
ing. The Legislature should provide
a severe punishment for carrying con
cealed weapons. More important than
legislation is that every good citizen
should discourage the practice, and by
his own conduct set a wholesome ex
ample in behalf of law and order, that
the country may no longer have to
answer for the blood of her citizens.
We want capital to come to this State;
we want good, honest, peaceable and
intelligent men to come here from the
crowded North to help build up our
waste places. They will never come
till this perpicious habit of carrying
concealed weapons ceases, and human
life thereby becomes more secure. All
law-abiding men should unite to put
down this evil. Better to suffer wrong
and injury than to have one's hands
stained with the blood of a fellow be
I feel that your diligence and the
creditable manner in which you have

FOR THE HERALD,
Surrounding circumstances and the
short-Sightedness of the wisest and
most experienced put to naught the
expectations of all. The papers teem
with articles on remonetizing silver.
Congress appears to be in a sort of
dilemma, hesitating between two opin
ions. Yet nevertheless, everything
pro and con, the low premium and the
influx of gold into this country, is a
problem to be solved. It has been as

them would be sent back to this coun

political indications of the certainty
of the passage of the bill remonetizing

are not being sent home, the market
prices are fairly sustained, and gold is
actually coming into this country in
no small quantities from the old world.

ever before since the war, and our ex
changes remarkrably favorable.
If we take a bird's eye view of Eu
rope, the very same phenomena pre.

is constantly importing, hoarding and
accumulating gold. She has added
millions of gold to her stock within
the last year. England in the mean

ML EDITOR : I desire through the
columns of your paper to expose the
fact, that on last Tuesday night just
after dark, the Presbyterian Parsonage
of this place was unceremoniously en
tered by an excited crowd from the
Presbyterian congregation,followed and
encouraged by persons from the Epis
copal, Associate Reformed, Methodist,
Baptist and Lutheran congregations,
and imposed a heavy pounding up
on the Pastor and his family, which
was wholly undeserved by them. Thick

Mr. EDIToa: Having read in~
your paper reports of the remarkable
cres of eatarrh, I am induced to tell
"what I know about catarrh," and I
fancy the "snuff" and "inhaling-tube"
makers (mere dollar grabbers) would
be glad if they could emblazon a sim.

I suffered with eatarrh. The~ nasal

though at intervals I would sniff up
the so-called catarrh snuff, until I be.
came a valuable tester for such medi
cines. I gradually grew worse, and
no one can know how much I suffered
or what a miserable being I was. My
head ached over my eyes so that I
was confined to my bed for many sue
essive days, saffering the most in
tense pain. which at one time lasted
continuously for 168 hours. All sense
of swell and taste gone, sight and
hearing impaired, body shrunken and
weakened, nervous system shattered,
and constitution broken, and I was

cure me in three-fourths of a second,

SAYS READ THIS.
Being now a resident of Columbia, at
least for awhile, I would say to my friends,
acquaintances and fotmer cuttomers of
Newberry and Laurens, that I have splen
did opportunities of purchasing.goods either
in small or large quantities, and anything
they may wish to purchase will be procured
and forwarded with the utmost dispatch.
I think I can safely assure my friends that
they will be fully satisfied as to goods and
prices. I shall charge but a small commis
sion for my trouble.
Give me a trial and you will not only
help yourself in saving money, but help me
also-no mjatter how small the order. A
retail or wholesale bill will meet with
prompt attention and you wil be -pleased.
The ladies need not hesitate in sending me
orders as a lady relative of mine of good
judgment will assist me in making selec
tions for the ladies.
