The County Conventlon.
On the 22nd instant the most im
portant Convention of the Cor'aty
will meet, the (5onvention to nomi
nate County officers and members
of the Legislature. Upon that Con
vention depends largely the f"atore
welfare of this Cornty. The dele
gates will be clothed with great re
sponsibility. It is to be hoped that
the Convention will be composed of
the best and wisest men of the
County, of men who have ideas of
their own, with the man1iness and
independence to stand up and
express them, men whose ideas
of right and duty are unclouded by
fattery and r-iwarped by prejudice.
The delegates should go to the
Convention to act for the best in
terests of the County, not to for
ward the schemes of any one man,
or clique or section. If the Con
vention act wisely and nominate the
right kind of ticket that ticket will
certainly be elected ; if, on the other
hand, a ticket be nominated that is
not acceptable to the mass of the
Democratic voters, the Republicans
and Independents, united together,
may bring upon us a most disas.

The people appreciate the great
issues before them, and we have no
doubt that the Nominating Conven
tion will be a truly representative
body, and that their action will be
such as to meet the approval and
endorsement of the party at large.
The State Conventions.
The Democratic State Conven
tion did the wisest thing they could
do when they renominated the whole
State ticket. Governor Hampto,n,
undoubtedly, can make a better ran
than any man in South Carolina,
and he certainly cannot be excelled
as a Governor. And it would be
impossible to improve the State of
ficers. 'Such a ticket will, as in
1876, call out the fall strength and
all the enthusiasm of the party.
The Republican Convention nomi
nated no State ticket. The reason
for this course is evident. It is
not because they are in love with
Hampton or his associates ; for if
they had any hopes of success they
would infinitely rather see Cham
berlain, or Elliott, or Swails, or
Smalls, or Patterson, or any other
grand rascal in the Gabeinatorial
office, surrounded by men of like
ilk. But they know they can't beat
that ticket, therefore they use the
ticket to further their designs upon
the Legislatur-e and Congress. Our
victory would have been easier had
they put out a straight-out Repub
lican ticket. The smartest men
gress. Men have been nominatec
for the latter position; for the for
mer we should select men who hav(
the confidence of the people ani
who will unite the whole Demo
cratic party in their support.
The Fence Law.
Mr. M. D. Kinard, of Williams
ton, Anderson Copnty, in a letter t<
the HmtD, says that he was op
posed to the no-fence law before it
adoption, but now thirks it a goo<
thing; he thinks, however, that i
year should be given to prepare fo:
it, so that pastr-es of clover o:
grasses corld be prepared for stock
Hon. D. Wyatt Aiken, in his ad
dress before the mass meeting h2
the Court House, the 5th instant
made some remarks on the fenc
law that are worthy of considera
tioia. He said that the day New
berry Couity abolishes the presen
fence law she will add half a millioi
dollars to her value. Out of twen
ty-nine intelligent and successfa
farmers that he had talked with oi
the subject in Anderson County
twenty-eight were in favor of th<
change, and say that since the;
have obtained fences there has beel
great improvements in farming an<
stock-raising. The one who wai
opposed to the change said befori
the abolition of fences he had gooi
pasturage for his stock-but it wal
on other people's lands. Eighty
three pounds of butter have beei
sold in Williamston in one day thi,
year at ten cents per pound, the re
sult of the no-fence law. One far
mer in Anderson sends fifty pound
a week to Charleston, for which hi
gets thirty cents per pound free of al
expenses. Since the no-fence law hai
been established in A -iderson then
has not been a single law.suit ii
the County in regard to division o
fences. The older farmers say tha
the cotton made on the land for
merly occupied by fences will pal
the taxes of the County.
In speaking of
for farming he said that an Agri

of introducing these. In this par

There is no greater promoter of jus
tice - than the expression of public C
opinion; and it is a lamentable fact a
that those who are capable of giving t
it are, either from want of self-confi- f
d:ce or indisposition, deterred from a
doing so. In either event, what is the f
meaning of it? A candid perusal of p
the pages of the past history of repub- d
lies will give an answer in tones too I
stentorian to be mistaken, too trae to t
be doubted. The republican form of E
government is one in which each indi- p
vidual composing it should consider I
himself personally responsible for its E

sentiments contained in his letters. a
The coming campaign-however sure a
we may feel as to its results-involves d
the most serious consequences. The b

We have tried-in the not far dis- j
tant past-every experiment conceiv- b
able to the ingenuity of man to come o
out from under its thraldom. We a
have mined against their mines; we f
have, by amalgamation, tried to reform t
it; we have submitted, acceded, sur- f
rendered and in almost every conceiv- o
able way compromised our dignity as t
a nation ; all of which efforts failed,
as they should,'most miserably, and at
last we have been compelled to oppose d
honor to vice, incorruption to corrup- e
tion, intelligence to the most infamous f,
ignorance, in order to recover our Jib- e
erties. How we succeeded is too ap
parently happy to be unknown, and a
why we wish a departure from the a
principles which brought us success, e
too mysterious to be understood. We t
will be opposed by all the trickery, in- c
famy and rascality that can be brought t
to bear by a polluted government, and t
it behooves us to meet it with all the t4
honor, intelligence and virtue incident g
to us as a people-to meet it without d
one missing linr in the chain which a
will bind it hand and feet, and con- 14
sign it to that chaotic oblivion which ;
it so truly merits. In order to do i
this we must lay aside all of har petty e
strifes and preferences, and delegate ,
such from our midst as are most corn- g
petent to carry out in word and deed b~
the immortal principles of that plat- d
form which in 1876 carried us 'mid i
shouts of victory into the possession ~
of the rights and privileges bequeathed r
us by an illustrious ancestry.
Our community is composed of far- t
mers, mechanics, merchants and law- c
yers; neither of which has a right to
exclusive representation in our halls y
of justice, nor to all of the honors and,
emoluments at the gift of the people, n
but either and all of which are enti- I
tIed, not on account of their vocations, Ih
but as one of the people to the afore- ri
mentioned honors, and the moment in U
which we deny any man this privilege a
(if he deserves it from a mental and v
moral point of view) we uproot the
staunchest principle of Republicanism.
We should send to Columbia and
Washington such men as will present
an invulnerable bulwark against all the
legions of corruption, and in selecting
them we should not slight the qualifi- t<
cations of any man on account of his
occupation. No man whose moral org
political record is tarnished in the k
slightest degree should be intrusted
with the management of our affairs in a
this the most trying hour of the life
of our liberties.
Remember that dissension is thed
material of which empires are con
structed. Be warned that those who
lead you by the noses into dissensions
in a republic, will profit by the change
and lead you by the necks into slavery
in an empire.
The triumphal march (grand ova
tion) of Grant is the first step taken-t
upon the authority of the great fraud
-towards the empire: we should beS
very careful to let it be the last. The
remedy against it is unity at the bal
lot-box, and knowing the remedy we
should-if we do not apply it-nott
murmur at what will be our just des
erts. Carolina has ever been the
champion of freedom, and no one part
of it claims more honor than is award er

assage of the Tariff Act of 1828, the y

be warning the Representatives and p

f Andrew Jackson's administration. 2
also remember the abolition question h

ritnessed many successes and disasters ti
p to the present time. . d
In looking ver all these events I I
ave concluded that our fair Southern b
Duntry has not prospered in propor- b
on to her soil, climate and various
nsources. The South failed in re- 1
ealing the Tariff Aci, and also in the f
bolition question, with great disaster n
nd ruin to her and a military t
espotism set over us. What has si
rought all this disaster upon the i
outh ? I will answer, by patronizing d
ar enemies instead of our friends. h
'he Southern people bought up the t]
laves of the North to makse cotton to vi
!ed the Northern manufactures, which v
ere built up by the Tariff on o
)reign goods, for the protection of n
Lmerican manufacture. If the South d
ad resolved not to sell one single bale k
