We have received the first num

ly neatly printed but very appropri
ately flfled, its contents being of a
varied and exceedingly interesting
character. The Literary Compen

at an opportune time, there being
no literary magazine published in
the State, and we see no reason
why it should not grow at once into
favor and realize a paying list of
subscribers. It has our best wishes.

A mass meeting of the Radicals was
held at tL, place the 26th ult. All
the speakers were colored. Tom Ham
ilton was read out of the party.
Whipper, the would-be Judge, pitched
into Smalls, Congressman, charging
him with rascality. Smalls replied,
denouncing Whipper as a demagogue;
drunkard, gambler, and everything
else that was vile. Smalls is a candi
date for re-election to Congress from
the 5th District. We hear nothing
now of this rascal's conviction for
bribery last year. He appealed to the
Supreme Court; ex Judge S. W. Mel
ton, his Attorney, is in Europe, the
appeal lies in some pigeon-hole, and
Smalls, a convicted felon, is making
incendiary speeches, reviving the cor
rupt Radical party, and working his
way to a seat again in the United
States Congress. The delegates to the
State Convention from this County
were instructed to nominate a straight
out Republican State ticket.
A mass meeting was held in this
County the 25th nlt. The most prom
inent speakers were Dan'l Rouse and
Gloster Holland (of Ellenton notorie
ty,) and ex-State Senatkr C. D. Hayne
-all colored. The County Republi
can Convention met the 31st, to choose
delegates to the State Convention the
7th instant. It seems to be the plan
of the Aiken Republicans to make no
opposition to the Democratic State
ticket or County officers, and to centre
all their strength towards electing
members of the Legislature and a
Congressman from the 5th District.
The Republican Convention of this
County met the 27th ult., and elected
three delegates, all colored, to the Re
publican State Convention. The Con
vention was composed entirely of ne
groes, except that the Secretary was a
white man, Jno. Bradley. They ip
tend to run a County ticket, and to
use ever& effort also to elect a Con
gressman for the 4th District.
The rads of WillIamsburg held their
County Convention the 27th ult., ex
Senator Swails, mulatto, President.
This fellow was forced by the revela
tions of his rascality to resign his seat
in the Senate; there is evidence
enough in the hands of proper parties
to send him to the penitentiary, and
et he too is allowed to roain at large
and work for the resuscitation of cor
rupt radicalism. His speech, accord
ing to a News and Courier corres
pondent, was defamatory and inflam
matory. He defied- the Democratic
party to bring charges against him;
defied them to put him in jail; if they
do, said he, it will be the destruction
of the Democratic party in Williams
burg County. He said he wasn't
scared worth a damn; that his Coun
ty could and should go Republican;
that Hampton was elected by fraud,
cheating and stealing, &c.
[From the Merchant and Farmer.]
The Radicals held a. meeting last
Saturday and selected delegates to the
State Convention to be held in Colum
bia on the 7th of August. There
were but few on hand, and their long
faces and solemn countenances showed
that they did not enter politic6 with
the same spirit as in former days. We
learn that the meeting was a distinct
Overtasking the Energies.
It is not advisable for any of us to over
task oar energies, corporeal or mental, but
in the eager pursuit of wealth or fame or
knowledge, bow many transgress this salu
tary rule. It must be a matter of great im
por-tance to a! who do so to know how they
can regain the vigor so recklessly expended.
The remedy is neither costly or difficult to
obtain. Hostetter's Stomach Bitters is pro
curable in every city, town and settlement in
Ameica, and it compensates for a drain of
bodily or mental energy more effectually
than any invi~orant ever prescribed or ad
FOR THE HERALD.
& Few Suggestions to the Demo
crats of the County.
There is, in addition to the points
which I have mentioned as necessaryi
to be considered in the nomination of
candidates for office, another matter
which we cannot afford to neglect.
Officers are not only to be nominated
for the whole County, but they are to
be voted for by the whole County.
This fact taken in connctiou with
the fact that all offices and all political
authority are derived from the people,
involves necessarily the conclusion
that the people's feelings and opinions
must be considered in making no1i
nations. To do otherwise-that is,
to undertake to nominate candidates
without consulting the popular will,
or still worse, in open opposition
to the popular will-is to assume an
authority in defiance of the people's
rights, and to attempt a tyranny
which the people are sure, by some
means or other, to resent.
In speaking of the people in this
connection, I mean the Democracy of
the County; there is no occasion to
trouble ourselves about the feelings of
It is true that it is not always easv
to ascertain the sentiment of the peo
ple in regard to a public man, until
he has been nominated and run for
office. And the persons who criticise
political campaigns are generally like
the military critics-they only find
out blunders after the fight has been
made and lost. Still, it is usually
possible to form a pretty correct esti
mate of a man's strength in the early
stages of a campaign and before nomi
nations are to be made. Almost all of
our people take some interest in such
things; and even if thy do not ex
pect Lo exert themselves in the con
test, they at least canvass the merits
of such persons as are mentioned in
connection with office, and they have
little hesitation in expressing their
opinions candidly and publicly. To
those, therefore, who mingle to any
extent with their fellow-citizens it is
generally made quite clear who is the
favorite or who are the favorites of the
people at large. There are certain
pigheaded individuals in every com
munity who dodot, will not and can
not see even the most manifest signs
of popular preference; but these men
are few, and they, fortunately, do not
generally have any hand in nominating
Of course a delegate to a nominating
convention ought to be largely guided
by his conscience and by his judgment
of the intellectual and business quali
fications, of the persons offered for
nomination, and it is questionable how
far he should be controlled by any
mere expressions of preference on the
part of the particular men who elect
him a delegate; but when be reflects
that he is to nominate persons not only
to run a race, but to win a race, every
ditate of common sense, and I might
add, even of common fidelity to his
duty, is that he must, if possible, nom
ince not only a candidatefit for office,
but one who carries sufficient strength
to afford a reasonable prospect of ~ his
election to office. In the absence of
express instructions from his Club,
the delegate must remember that he
represents not only the Club members
who appointed him (who, by the way,
may be a minority of his Club,) not
merely the whole of his Club, but that
he represents the Democrats of the
County at large, those out of the Clubs
as well as those that are in them, and
that he must therefore vote for such
men as ought to and probably will se
ure the cordial support of the whole
party. Delegates to a nominating
convention by no means own the offices
to be filled ; they are at best but the
servants and agents of the Democratic
party. They must, therefore, if they
would faithfully discharge the duties
imposed upon them, select such candi
dates as will suit both the popular
needs and the popular will. The trust
confided to them is, especially in such
times as these, a very sacred one, and
they should be as careful and as scru
pulous about its discharge as they
would be about investing or taking
care of other men's money committed
to their keeping. Indeed, more so,
for the welfare of a whole County,
which often very largely depends upon
its public offices, is vastly more im
portant than the whole fortune of any
It is useless to say that the delegate
should only select candidates whom he
considers proper men for office, and
that if. the people do not vote and
work for them it is their own fault.
It is his business to select those upon
whom the voters can harmonize, when
ever he can. If he could make and
unmake public opinion, he might take
that ground. But the fact is, that the
people make up their own minds about
men, and they are not going to change
them at the order of any individual.
D~ur Democracy is an independent and
i bold one; it thinks for itself: it
will act for itself ; and while it acqui
~sces in many thin~s for the sake of
One great evil attending the system
of nominations by conventions may
well be mentioned here. It is the
very unwise, and often injurious prac
tice of delegates pledging themselves
to vote for a particular candidate or a
particular set of candidates. It is one
of the results of human weakness
which we can scarcely ever expect to
entirely prevent ; but it is not the less
to be held up to censure. Most men,
partly out of good nature, partly out
of vanity, need only to be flattered
and begged, to secure their vote, pro
vided they do not know the applicant
to be an idiot or a rascal. One does
not like to say no to a fellow who
comes fawning about him for his vote,
and not knowing what else he can do,
will most often say yes. Then again,
one feels so important when the big
electioneerer or his friends come to
hiiM and tells him that he is a man of
influence in his neighborhood, that his
valuable opinions are desirad by the
candidate, that the cand.date wants
the support of such a man, &c., &c.,
that he learns to feel migh;y kind to
this candidate and his friends, and in
the fullness of his pride and joy blabs
out his pledge to vote for this candi
date, before he knows what he is
about. And once promised, he feels
in honor bound, though a thousand
better men should afterwards be put
forward, and though he never received
a particle of favor from his candidate.
This is not an exaggerated account.
I have known enemies of years' stand
ing to be reconciled by a false compli
ment from one to the other, and I have
constantly known men pledged and
bound fast, even against their best
friends, by the use of fla,tery as gross
as it was hollow.
No delegate ought to come pledged
to a nominating convention, except so
far as he may be positively instructed
by his Club. For no delegate can
know, and no delegate has the right
to assume to know, exactly what men
will be offered before the convention
for nomination. And no delegate can
possibly know all the good and all the
bad in any candidate. He may be
quite well informed, and he may feel
very positive about it, bat he cannot
tell, to save his life, but that he may
learn, at the very last moment, of any
given candidate enough to forever
damn him in the eyes of the people.
Certainly no delegate can know, once
in a hundred times, what is a candi
date's ability, what is his moral char
acter, what is his -industry, what is
is patriotismi,and wha sis his strength
with the party at large, until lhe can
consult with other men.

the resolmions and after due deliberation
made the following report:
The Democratic party of South Carolina
in convention assembled, announces th
following as its
PLITFORM OF PRINCIPLES:
We reiterate our acceptance, in perfec
good faith, of the thirteenth, fon:.eentf
and fifteenth amendments to the Federa
constitution. Accepting ahd standing upot
them, we turn from the settled and fina
past to the great living and momentou
issues of the present and the future.
We reaffirm the platform of principle
announced by the National Democratic par
ty asembled at St. Louis, and in accordance
with the declaration of that platform an(
the utterances and acts of our distinguishes
leader, Wade Hampton, we call upon al
of our fellow citizens, irrespective of race
color, or previous condition, to unite witl
with us in continraiug the work of reform
and redemption inaugurated by the Dem
ocratic party of South Carolina, for it ii
evident that substantial and lasting reforn
is impossible within the ranks of the Re
publican party of this State.
We have charged and convicted the Repub
lican party with arraying race against race
creating disturbances and fomenting diffi
culties; with prostituting the elective fran
chise, tampering with the ballot box ano
holding unfair and fraudulent elections
with having accumulated an enormous debt
mismanaged the finances and injured th4
credit of the State; with levying exorbitan
taxes and squandering them when collected
thus wringing from the toil and livelihooo
of the honest poor man of the State a largo
per centuin of his hard earnings, withoui
giving, in return, any compensation there
for, and hopelessly involving in debt i
majority of the counties of the State.
Its management of our penal and char
itable institutions was a shame and a dis
We charge its legislation as demoral
izing, partisan and disgraceful; and th4
venality and corruption which character
ized every branch of the government, exe
ecutive, legislative and judicial, as having
no parallel in the history of nations.
It created a multiplicity of unnecessar
and useless offices, complicated in their sys
tem and uunecessarily expensive, and car
never purify itself, give good and impartial
government, or by its moral force anc

We do not charge this condition o
of things, which every patriot must. deepl,
deplore, upon the masses of the party, bu
upon their leaders, who made such fata
use of their confidence and trust; for it

of the State, of both races, desire peace
We, therefore, call upon all of our fel
low citizens, irrespective of race or pas
party affiliation, to join with us in preserv

maintaining her dignity and characte:

We discountenance all disturbances of the
peace of the State, and denounce all insti
gators and promoters thereof, and earnestl,
call upon all of our fellow-citizens, irrespec

and culhivate good will. And if the gov
emnent of the State is continued in oui
control, we pledge ourselves to protect th<
persons, rights and property of all its peo
pie, and to speedily bring to summary jus
tice any who dare violate them.
We desire a fair, peaceable election, ap
pealing to the reason and not the passior
of the people, and have guaranteed by lai
a fair election and a fair count.

The Resolutions were taken up seriatim
The resolution of Mr. Aiken relative tc
immigration was laid on the table, and the
Resolved, That for the development oj
our growth as a people, and of our re
sources as a State, a bureau of immigratior
and agriculture should be established, hay
ing for its object the encouragement of;
and holding out inducement to the honesi
and industrious emigrants from other coun
ties to settle amongst us, and designed tc
stimulate an increased and improved pro
duction of whatever may be grown upor
our soil ; and we recommend to the Gene
ral Assembly the speedy enactment of sucla
laws as will found such a bureau upona
permanent and practical basis, and provide
for its ready and active operation to the
attainment of this desirable end.
The committee recommended the adopt.
ion of the following substitute for M. P.
O'Connor's resolution relative to the excise
Resolved, That this convention views
with the deepest concern the troubles
which have arisen inr the upper portion
of the State in the enforcement of the ex.
cise laws of the United States relating to
illicit distilling of whisky, and is extremel~
selicitous that this subject should be fairly
considered by Congress, and some law~
devised in amendment of, or supplementary
to, the present system that will remove the
existing. causes of irritation, alleviate the
present troubles of obedience by virtue of a
recognition of the justice of the laws, and
restore peace and quiet where discontent
now reigns. And as preliminary to a
change of these laws, we invoke his Ex
cellency R. B. Hayes, President of the
United States, to extend amnesty unto all
persons in this State who have violated
Resolved, that this convention commends
with entire approbation the course which
has been pursued in thelate session of Con
gres by our distinguished United States
Senator Hon. M. C. Butler, as well as by
his Democratic colleagues, the Hon. D.
Wyatt Aiken and Hon. J. H. Evins in the
House of Rrepresentatives, and the State
now calls upon them in their respective
spheres of 'luty to exert their influence and
ability to effect the desired modification
of the excise laws, and secure for our peo
ple the relief which is so muchel ne eded and
A. C. Garlington, of Greenville, offered
the following resolution, which was unani
mously adopted, amid loud applause and
booming of cannon.

fidelity of His Excellency Governor Wade

MR. CHAIRMAN AND GENTLEMEN OF THE
CONVENTION: I would be wanting in all
proper sensibility if I did not recognize the
unexampled unani nity with which you have
done me the honor to call me to be your
standard-bearer again. It is true that you
do not call me now aQ yon did two years
ago, when all over our dear oid State even
the boldest scarcely dared to hop:-, when
we were making a fight almost as a protest
to save the civilization of our country. You
have not done that, but you have done
what is more grateful to us. By your re
nomination of us you have said that as rep
resentatives of South Carolina you come
back, and in the name of the people you
represent, you say "well done." You come
bick and endorse the pledge-. that were
made in the last canvass. You come back
the invincible Democracy of the State, not
only to endorse what we have done, but to
give asst.rance that we are going to win
another victory, grander in scope than the
one we achieved in 1876.
I will not say to you, gentleman, any
thing that % ill lull you into false security.
Many of you here were members of the
Legislature, and you may remember that
at the last session, in appearig here, I
said to you I believed that the Republicans
would not nominate a State ticket, but
would devote their whole labor to the ac
complishment of one thing, and that is to
carry the.Legislature. I have not changed
my opinion on that point, and froin some
points of view, 1 almost regret that a ticket
will not be offered by them in opposition to
the State officers. But I say here, whether
there shall be opposition or not, I pledge
myself td devote my time and energy and
ability to assist in carrying the Legislature
of South Carolina. I say here to the repre
sentatives from all parts of the State that
in whatever means I can assist you, if you
will only call upon me, I will respond
promptly; even more promptly than in the
last campaign; because, as you all know, it
t is much more important that we-should
have a good Legislature than a Democratic
I trust that you will go back and work
t from now until the election closes, that we
may carry the Legislature, and that we may
carry our Congressional elections. Gentle
men, I think you heartily and cordially for
the compliment you have paid me. I can
only ref%r you to the pledges I have made
ia the past, and to the way in which I have
fulfilled-then. I trust that in November
. next I shall have the opportunity of greet
ing you upon having achieved a victory as
grand as that of 1876.
Governor Hampton was frequently ap
plauded, and retired amid hearty cheers.
The other nominees also responded.

EDITRs H ERALD : Perhaps it
would not be incumbr<,us upon the
columns of your popular journal to
have a few items from "glorious old
Edgefield." The laud of candidates ;
fthe land where patriotism has c'hanged
into a sublime virttue. The virtue
that gave to batrbarism its dazzling
lustre, to christianity its heroic form
and to politics its redeeming traits, is
not dead. It still lives in Edgefield
to preserve, to console and to sanctify
Elevate the national character; con
front corruption wherever it appears.
Scourge it from the hustings. Seiourge
it from the public forum, and whilst
proceeding with the noble task to
which they have devoted their lives
and fortunes, this thought has enrap
tured and invigorated their hearts.
These are the sentiments and precepts
which the Edgefield candidate has
emblazoned upon his hopes of a seat
in the House of Representatives.
By the sort blue waters of Lake Lu
cerne stands the chapel of William Tell.
At Innsbruck in the black aisle of the
old Cathedral the peasant of the Tyrol
kneels before the statue of Andrewi
Hofer And here in tire great Ameri
can Republic-in that Capital City
which bears his name-rises the mon
ument of the father of his country.
It is not the fame of such. men as these
that the Edgefield candidate wishes
to rival. They care not for monu
ments or statuary to illustrate theiri
heroic deeds in the legislative halls of
their country. But like these men
they are urged on by their friends and
the pcople to leave their homes and
firesides to contend for a seat in the<
Legislature, where they can represent
their constituents to advantage, and
tell the simple story of high taxes,
phosphate monopolies and University
extortions. I would that Edgefield
were as large as the State of South ]
Carolina, and then our 41' candidates
would realize perhaps the brightest 1I
dream of their lives-to be a states
man. But it is not South Carolina,
it is simply old Edgefield, and alas !
how few out of the 41 will be chosen.

Af August next the cowmencement of
this popular movement throughout the
State will be celebrated with appro
priate ceremonies. The red shirt will
be worn to make the occasion solemn
and impressive and to throw a halo
around the scene. All Edgefield,
from the Saluda to the S-;-anuah, will
be in attendance on this august occa
sion. The youth and old age, the gay
and festive, the farmer and the mer
chant, the mechanic -and the clergy.
man will leave their avocations and
journey to Edgefield village. Hamp
ton, Ragood, Mackey and may other
distinguished gentlemen will be here.
The Bald Eagle will be chief. Gary
is the man that started the ball in mo
tion, and Edgefield accords him the
honor of commencing a movement
which has been the salvation of the
State. Let the people of Sonth Caro
lina show their gratitude and send M.
W. Gary to the U. S. Senate.
Edgefield is about to commence
work on the Branch Rail Road to

AND WAS CURED.
DELAWARE, 0., Feb. 1, 1877.
Ma. H. R. STEVENS:
Dear Sir,-I wish to give you this testi
mony, that you may know, and let others
know, what Vegetine has done for me.
About 'two years ago a small sore came on
my leg; it became a large Ulcer, so trouble.
some that I consulted the doctor, but I got
no relief', growing worse from day to day.
I suffered terribl; I could not rest day or
night; 1 was.so reuced my friends thought
I wonid never recover; I consulted a doctor
at Columbus. I followed his advice; it did
no good. I can truly say I was .ilscouraged.
At this time I was lookmng over my news
paper; I saw your advertisement of Vege.
tine, the "Great Blood-Purinier" for cleans
ing the blood from ill impurities, curing
Humors, Ulcers, &c. I said to my family,
I will try some of the Vegetine. Before I
had used the first bottle I began to feel bet
ter. I made up my mind I had got the right
medicine at last. I could now slee well at
nights. I continued taking the 'eetine.
I took thirteen bottles. My health isgood.
The Ulcer is gone, and I am able to attend
to business. I paid about four hundred dol
.ars for medicine and doctors before]I
bought.the Vegetine. I have recommended
Vegetine to others with good success- I
always keep a bottle of it in the house now.
It is a most excellent med icine.
Very respectfully yours,F.ATO.

IMPURE BLoD.-In morbid conditions of
the blood are many diseases; such as salt
rheum, ring-worm', boils, carbuncles, sores,
ulcers and pimples. In this condition of the
blood try the VEGETINs, and cure these
affections. As a Dlood purinier it has no
equal. Its effects are wonderful.
DoEcHEsTEE, MASS., June II..
Dear Sir,-I f*'el it my duty to sa~y one
word In regard to the great benenit Thavo
recived from the use of one of the greatest
wonders of the world; it is your Vegetinie.
I have been one of the greatest sufferers for
t he last eight years tha ever could be liv
in. I do smncerely thankbiv God and your
Veine for the relief I'have got.. The
Reumatism has pained me to such an ex
tent, that my feet broke out in sores. For
the last three years I have not been able to
walk; now I can walk and sleep, and do
my work as well as ever I did, and I must
eayI owe it all to your blo purinir Vege

HENDERSON, KY., Dec., 1877.
I have used H. B. Stevens' Vegetine, and
Ike it better than any medicine I have
ised for purifying the blood. One bottle of

al other medicines I have taken.
VEGETINE is composed of Boots, Barks,

~very child likes it.
