already been made in this paper as to
the time the Iopewell community
would hold its camp-meeting. We are
requested now to state the meeting will
commence on Saturday evening before

may be considered positive as the notice
comes from headquarters. The meet.

BARBECUE.-The neighborhood bar
becue and social near Mrs. Chesley
Herbert's on Wednesday last was a
most delightful affair, and called to
gether a large number of people from
the surrounding countiy. The dinner
was abandant and of the best, the hash
especially calling for praise. One pleas
ant feature in connection-there was no
speaking, consequently no politics, and
everything passed as meriy as a mar
riage bell. The people of the New
Chapel neighborhood are noted for hos
pitality and cleverness.
(OmCKENS- AND SNAKES.-Ed Brad
ley, colored, was up before Trial Jus
tice Carlisle Friday for stealing guineas,
chickens and a dog from Mr. Frank
Johnson, the night of the 20th. Ed
came into Court on crutches, with his
foot dreadfully swollen and bandaged.
While lying out in the woods the night
after the stealing from fear of being
caught, a highland moccasin bit him on
the foot. He was convicted and sent to
jail-where he wvill have much better
attention than he would have outside.
He is in no danger from the bite.
THE COLI.OED CAMP MEETING at
Blandusian Spring has been going on
since Wednesday, the 14th, without in
termission. About fifteen preachers
have been in attendance, and the inter
est manifested has been deep and pow
erful. Fifty persons have been convert
ed and have joined the churches c, :,heir
choice, while hundreds of others are
more or less affected. We hope it will
work for good to all who attend. At
this time the meetings are held in the
open air at the Spring in the afternoon,
and at night in the colored Methodist
church in town.
THE REv. H. W. KUuNs.-We an
nounce to-day with deep regr-et the de
parture of this distinguished divine for
the new home and new charge to which
he has been called. Regret and sorrow
are universally felt by the community
with whom he has been identified in
closest interest for the past sx years
every class of society and business hav
ing felt the influence of his zealous and
intelligent efforts in the advancement
of the public weal, religiously, socially
and financially. No man has worked
harder for NewbeiLy than he, and we
but utter the sentiment of the whole
people in saying well done, good and
faithful servant. The re-location of
Newberry College in the town is large.
ly due to his indomitable energy, and
the community appreciate it-Luther
Chapel too has cause for rejoicing even
in this hour of sad parting that his la.
bors in that direction have produced
good fruit. We commend him to the
good people of Westminster, Maryland,
and wish him and his interesting and
amiable family a pleasant and safe jour
ney and a happy home in the new field
to which they go.

f THE COUNTY CONVENTION.
In giving the proceedings of the Con
vention we shall confine ourselves ex
clusively to undisputed facts. We do
this in deference to the position that we
occupy. The writer of this is one of
the seven contesting delegates from the
Young Men's Democratic Club, and is
among those known as the "Suber fac
tion" in contradistinction to what is
known as the "Johnstone faction," into
which th, County is divided. It is in
view of these facts, and~in view of the
further fact that nothing should be said
to add to the excited state of the public
mind, and not from any indisposition to
say what we think, that we do this.
The County Democratic Convention
convened in the Court House Thursday,
the 22nd instant, for the rrpose of nom
inating candidates for .he Legislature
and the various County offices, Presi
dent W. D. Hardy in the Chair.
There were contesting delegations
from certain. Clubs in Townships Nos.
1, 4, 9 and 11. The chief interest cen
tred on the contest from No. 1. Seven
delegates appeared from the Young
Men's Club, known as Club 2, and four
from the Carolina Club. T. J. Lips
comb, of No. 1, moved that the matter
be referred to the County Executive
Committee, and that in case the member
of that Committee from any Township
wene not present the delegation elect
one of their number to fill the vacancy
for the occasion. G. M. Wilson, of No,
10, moved to amend by referring the
matter to a Committee on Credentials
to be composed of one delegate from
each of the eleven Townships, to be ap
pointed by the Chair. The amendment
was adopted and the Committee was
authorized to send for persons and pa
pers, The Chair appointed as the Com
mittee the following; From No. 1, R.
L. MeCaughrin; No. 2, J. 0, Turnip
seed; No. 3, Jno. T. Bynum; No, 4, J.
S. Spearman; No. 5, J. W. Folk; No.
6, T. M. Neel; No. 7, Jas. R. Irwin;
No. 8, Jno. T. Peterson; No. 9, A. H.
Wheeler; No. 10, Geo. M. Wilson; No.
11, T. H. Crooks. The Committee re
tired and after taking testimony from
the contesting delegations returned, and
made a majority and a minority report.
"We recorumend that the Young Men's
Democratic Club be entitled to four
votes and the Carolina Club be entitled
to three votes, and that the delegates
first on the list of each of the two dele
]gations be entitled to seats as delegates.
J. Win. Folk, Geo. M. Wilson, A. H.
Wheeler, J. S. Spearman, Jno. T. By
num, T. H. Crooks, J. 0. Turnipseed,
T. M. Neel."
"We, the undersigned minor ity of the
Comnmitte. 'n Credentials, beg leave to
report to tais Convention that we can
not agree to the majority report, and
recommeQnd that all the delegates from
the Young Men's Club be seated. Jno.
T. Peterson, J. R. Irwin, R. L. Mc
In regard to No. 4, the Committee
reported that they recommend the seat
ing of the five original delegates. In
regard to Club 2 of No. 11, they recom
mended the seating of the five delegates
present. In regard to Club 1 of No. 9,
they recommended that H. C. Moseley
be seated. The Convention took up
the reports on No. 1. A motion was
made to adopt the majority report.
Leave was granted to two members of
each of the two contesting delegations
to present andI argue their ca'ses. J.
E. Brown, of the Carolina Club, and
. L. Schumpert, of the Young Men's
Club, were heard. The facts of the
case may be briefly stated. On Mon
day night, 19th inst., the Young Men's
Democratic Club met in Thespian
Hall, in obedience to the call of
its Executive Committee, J. E. Brown,
President, in the Chair, and L. W. Jones
acting Secretary. E. C. Jones, Chair
man of the Executive Committee of tbe
Club, read the report from the Execu
tive Committee of the Township which
met the 17th to apportion the Township
delegation; by which apportionment
this Club was allowed seven delegates.
The two factions into which the Club
was then divided each nominated seven
delegates. The ballot was taken, with
the following result: 0. L. Schumpert,
53; T. C. Pool, 54; W. H. W allace,
53; J. Y. Culbreath, 52; L. K. Vance,
52; L. W. Simkins, 55; A. C. Jones,
51; J. E. Brown, 51; G. S. Mower, 48;
Geo. McWhirter, 49; 0. B. Mayer, Jr.,
49; R. Y. Leavell, 47; Geo. Johnstone,
48; D. S. Pope, 51; E. C. Jones, 2;
,1; R. Moorman, 1; W. W.
Hodges, 1; L. W. Jones, 1. It was then
asserted by the Johnstone faction that
there had been three illegal votes, that
104 ballots were cas.t whereas only 101
members voted. The Suber faction de
nied this, and it was soon ascertained that
103 members certainly voted. Some
said that James Hlornsby had voted,
making the 104. The President there
upon decided that Schumpert, Pool,
Wallace and Simkins were elected.
Mr. Hlornsby, being brought in, said
that he had not voted. The President
-then reversed his decision, and decided
that there had been an illegal vote cast,
and that there had been no election.
No appeal was taken from this decision.
Geo. Johnstone then moved to adjourn
rto Wednesday night following, and to
appoint a committee to investigate the
- votes in the meantime. W. H. Wallace
requested him to put his motion to ini
f vestigate and his motion to adjourn
- separately, as a motion to adjourn is
- not debatable. This he declined-to do.

When quiet was restored the Presiden
arose and stated to those who remainc<
in the Hall that, as he was in sympath

thought it better that he should als<

0. L. Schumpert moved "that it is th<
wish of the Club that the President,
Mr. Brown, do keep the Chair," which
was unanimously adopted by a rising
vote. Still insisting the President wa
excused. He called the 1st Vice-Presi
dent, W. H. W-allace, to tbe Chair, and
withdrew. Acting in accordance with
President Brown's decision, that thern
bad been no election, Mr. Schumperi
moved that the Club go into an electior
for seven -delegates-adopted. Messrs.
Schumpert. Pool, Wallace, Culbreath,
Vance, Simkins and A. C, Jones were
The Johnstone faction, after with
drawing, went to Mr. Mower's ofiice
and formed a Club, which they named
the Carolina Club. Wednesday night
following they met in Thespian Hall
and went into an election for four
delegates to the County Convention.
Messrs. Geo. S. Mower, Geo. John
stone, D. S. Pope and J. E. Brown
were then elected delegates-whole
number of votes 39.
We have stated the facts as acknow
ledged by both sides. We have stated
them with particularity, because they
are important. What action the Coun
ty Democratic Convention would have
taken after having heard these facts it
is impossible to say. Just at this stage
of the proceedings occurred
between Capt. D. A. Dickert and Col.
Thos. J. Lipscomb, (we prefer to call
them by these old army titles, though
the former is now a Colonel in the State
Militia and the latter is a Major-Gene
ral.) Aboat the time that Mr. Schum
pert was finishipg his speech a personal
difficulty arose between these two gen
tlemen. Shots were exchanged. Capt.
Dickert receiving a wound in his right
arm, the ball entering between the hand
and elbow, coming out just above the
elbow, and Col. Lipscomb being hit on
the right breast, the ball glancing and
causing only a slight abrasion. Capt.
D. returned home Saturday morning,
apparently doing well. Capt. Dickert,
the offending party, has tendered proper
apologies to Col. Lipscomb, which have
been accepted, the dificulty lias beep
settled honorably to both parties, and
they are friends. Both gentlemen were
gallant soldiers in the service of the
Lost Cause, and two braver men never
lived. We hope soon to hear that Capt.
Dickert has recovered full use of his
FAREWEL. SERMON.-ReV. H. W.
Kuhns preached his first sermon to the
congregation of Ltither Qbapel the last
Sunday in August, 1872. At that time
the Church was far from prosperous; it
had only forty members; the Sunday
School numbered only thihteen; prayer
meetings were almost unknown; the
people had no parsonage; the Church
building was sadly out of repair. The
last Sunday in August, 1878, the 24th
inst., he preached his farewell sermon.
The contrast between the condition of
affairs at the beginning and the close
of his ministry here speaks volumes for
his faithfulness and ability. The church
building is in fine condition; the Sun
day School numbers over seventy; the
membership is one hundred and thirty
one; prayer meetings are held every
week; a neat and comfortable parson
age has been erected; and the Church
now rank~s among the very first in the

sermon. He preached again at night

THE PICNI AT TRINTTY.-The nleet
ing of the County Lodge of Good Tem
plars was held at Trinity Church the
21st. The Grangers in that section
united with the Good Templars in pre
paring an elegant picnic for the occa
sion. Fully two hundred and fifty per
sons were present, Mr. Vastine Her
long, of Edgefield County, a vigorous
and forcible speaker, who has done
much good in his County, spoke first;
followed by James Packer, Esq., in his
usual happy style, and by Itev. J. C.
Boyd, in a short and pithy address.
The repast which followed was sump
tuous and elegant.
The next meeting of the County
Lodge will be held at Prosperity, the
3d Wednesday in November.

People are looking forward with de

money is plentiful. Economy is the
order now and it is right, that is in so
far as concerns such articles as can be
done without. But it is unwise policy
to deprive oneself of things which are
essential to comfort, and especially when
they can be had for a mere trifle. How
pleasant it is to sit around a well ap

hand how uncomfortable if the sets are

The Cramer Troupe advertised here
for the 24th and 2Gth, came in ahead of
time on Thursday last, and unfortunate
ly at a time of great political excite
ment, and in consequence the attend
ance was so small that the management
could not do otherwise than decline to
give a performance. We regret this.
Mr. Cramer had been solicited to visit
Newberry, and his mortification must
have been great, but we offer in excuse
the great excitement of the day which
no doubt influenced many ladies to re
main at home. Mr. Cramer's repu
tation and the versatile talent of his
company are known and appreciated
here, and would under favorable cir
cmnstances insure him a good house.
We suppose it would be useless to ask
him to repeat his visit, but add this
much, that had he announced a per
rormance for the next night he would
have had no cause to complain.
TrAT "KAuKUS."-Some days pre
vious to the meeting of the County Con
vention circular letters were sent round
.o the delegates in the County, signed
by J. S. Hair, (by what authority we
ire not able to say), requesting them to I
meet at the Court House Wednesday,
:he 21st, the day preceding the Conven
;ion. The delegates from the towns of
gewherry and Prosperity were not in
7ited. Quite a number of delegates re
)ponded to the call, many not knowing
what was to be done. IMIost of them
were opposed to apy such movement.
Fhey didn't like the idea of caucuses
ithin the party, nor the idea of array- r
ng country against town. The meet
ng was held over Mann's, (Webb's old c
,tore,) and T. W. Holloway, of No. 11,
was called to the Chair. J. S. Hair, of
No. 1, explained the object of the meet
ng, which was to unite together the
lelegates from the country. Capt. Jno.
UcCarley, of No, 4, moved to adjourn
ine die. This was seconded by W. R.
Smitb, of No. 7, and carried almost .3
inanimously, amid applause. And 4
,hus the "caucus" "flashed in the pan," 5
is it ought to have done, and as all such 6
ittempts will do. There are a few men
who are silly enough to try to array
::ountry against town, but the great
mass of the people have no sympathy
with any such feeling.
