DRUMMER'S LAMENT.--It costs a good It
Pdeal in time and money to drum the i
country betwee.n here and Laurens by r
rail with the present schedule. Oe of c
the interesting fraternity says that it f
takes just ten days to make the trip,
taking in Jalapa, Kinard's, Martin's I
and Clinton, at either of which interme- a
diate places forty-five minutes would (
amply suffice for the business of the
biggest man of the party. By buggy it I
can be made in two days. Unfortu- r
nately there are not vehicles enough in i
the country to accommodate all the
drummers who travel in that direction.
There is one conspion, however, and
this is, that ha,ving more nppey than
any other Aass of travellers they ep4p
SPARTANBURG- WH AT THE DELE- r
GATES ASKED US TO SAY.-A better
pleased and more enthused crowd it was
never our fortune to meet than the par- ~
y returning fromr Spartanburg on Sat
urday last. Too full for utlteranpe to
express the great gratification expe
rienced, at the hands of president D)un
can, Capt. R. L. Bowden and citizens
gener4lly, they requested us to do so
for them. They acknowledge a com- i
plete surprise, and can never whilp 6
memory holds her sway forget the splen- e
did hospitality of the people of grand
old Spartanburg, whose hearts, homes
and purses were all thrown wide ppep.
We can understand that it was a mag
nificent ovationi, knowing what we do
of the whole-souled, warmi-hearted peo- '
ple of that highly-favored section. in
whose praise too much cannot be said. s
The trip to Pace's gap, so generously
afforded by the king of rail road build- ~
ers, President Duncan, was a rare tr.eat,
the magnitude of the work, the grand ~
mountain views, seen by many of them
for the $rst time, proving a wonder and
delight. Spartanburg has taken New
berry captive, and we take no little
pleasure in returning thanks for such V
The following were the delegates :

Too Mucn DRUMxMER.-The extraor- v
dinary gathering of drummers in this C
town last week evidently means some
thing. But what? Who can answer?
Some think it was apreconcerted move
ment, the object to take the merchants t<
by storm, and by a flank movement in t
overwhelming numbers persuade them 3
from going North; others that they
came to attend the colored camp meet
ing at Blandusian Spring; others again
that they had heard of the decline in r
chickens-the price we mean. What- I
ever the reason they were here, and the b~
consequence was that all kinds of pro
visions immediately took arise. Chick- s
ens, butter and eggs went right up- r
the proprietor of tbe Simmons House
paid fabulous prices for them, and little a
children's mothers who had been feed- (
ing their little ones on the pure article I;
had to reduce their rations with water e
because the cry of the drummer was u
more milk. Now no one objects to a s
drummer occasionally, as he is general- s
ly good looking and jovial, and one or
two cannot affect the market much, or
'ive uneasiness to the pcor who cannot
ford to buy at long prices, but when
they come in platoons, everything and
everybody is demoralized, and we must d
enter a protest. The drummer must be ~
made to scatter. For information we
give the names of those who registered C
in three days at tbe Simmons House. o

There seems to be a wrong impression as
the status of the case of the Democratic
minee for School Commissioner, institu
d just after the general election in '76,
ad to remove all such errors, is the object
f this card. It will be remembered that
enry S. Boozer of Prosperity was the nomn
ee referred to, that M. S. Long, (colored,)
as his opponent, and that the election was
elared against Boozer, as well as all the
emocratic nominees. Soon after said gen
rl election legal proceedings were institu
id by us for Mr. Boozer, to oust Long from
xe office of School Commissioner, on the
round, among others, that he (Long) was
tally ineligible to hold said trust, he hay
g been convicted at a former term of the
essions Court of official misconduct. The
sue was squarely made, anni placed upon
i Calendars of our Court to await trial.
a the meantime every effort possible was
iade by Mr. Boozer, his friends and his
uunsel, both here and in Columbia, to have
id cause arranged so as to place Boozer
the office to which, as every one felt, he
as fairly and honestly elected. Long was
moved from office before we could possi
ly bring his cause up for trial, and as a
lemocratic Convention was called to make
rtain nominations soon after, this amiong
thers, we naturally inferred thatr Mr.. Boo
