The GreenbaCkers and Nation,
We are not champions for o
against National Banks. indeed on
experience with Banks of any 1,n
has been extremely limited. Th
reason for this is obvious-to us
and, we may add, not by any mean
satisfactory. Suffice it to say it ha
not been because we had any fear o
*Banks-quite the contrary.
The papers from all parts of th
United States are full of the Green
back party and their opposition t<
National Banks. Now, it is but sin
pie justice to~our Banks at home t<
examine into the manner of theil
management before we take sides
and see whether or not they are the
monsters that some writers woul(
have us believe they are
As an example, we take the Na
tional Bank of Newberry ; for wi
know more about that one than an'
other. This Bank has been in suc
cessful operation since July 1871
It commenced with $100,000 capita
paid in, and in March 1872 inzreasec
it to $150,000. Its business hai
.been largely with the farming par'
bf our community, the general idet
being to assist the farmer during
the spring and summer to make hif
crop, and in the fall and winter tc
furnish money to market it. And
it can be said, to its credit, thai
there has not been a day since il
commenced business that it has noi
responded to all demands made up
on it for money to move the crop;
and, by its liberal policy towards
the cotton operators, has allowed
full and free competition, the resuli
of which has been that this has beer
one of the best cotton markets in the
up-country. The officers of the
Bank have kindly ft"nished us the
following statement, from which ii
will be seen who are the stockhold
ers and customers: There are 67
stockholders--54 in the County, and
13 elsewhere; average stock to
each $2,238.80, held as follows
Merchants, 17; Bank officers, 4;
Physicians, 3; Lawyers, 5; Clerks,
2; Societies and Trustees, 5; Far.
mers, 11; Widows, 11; Married
women, 9--of the idows and mar.
ried women a large proportion are
also farmers. Over $125,000 of the
stock is owned and held in this
On the first day of September
last, the beginning of the cotton
year, its loans amounted in the ag
gregate to $229,136.52, divided into
~ lev~n~ ~ fc11rvrtc~. ~ f~rnswn
chants, hold the bulk of the stock.
and that the farmers are its largest
customers. Be it said to the credit
of the farmers that the Bank has
lost less by them than by any other
class of its customers.
It would seem from the above
statement that the National Bank
of Newberry has been managed in
the interest of the citizens of the
County, and is still so managed, and
it is a rare occurrence that we hear
complaints. At the same time the
rates of interest charged are high ;
but when we consider the taxes
paid by the Bank it is not too much
to allow for fair dividends and the
risk of business. The tax paid by
the Bank is 3 per cent., amounting
to $4,500 annually-under radical
rule it was $5,500. This tax is as
follows ; on circulation 1 per cent.,
$1,350; on deposits j per cent.,
$650 ; on stamps $550 ; State and
County tax $1,650; Town tax$300;
total $4,500. Reduce the tax to
what Banks in this State paid be
fore the war, I per cent., and mon -
ey can be lent at the rates current
The Greenback party wants Uni
ted States Treasury notes issued in
lieu of National Bank notes ; in oth
er words, they want the United
States to fornish the currency
for the whole country. This would
amount to the United States doing
a banking business, which we do
not think the government should
undertake. The National Bank
system is a good one, the best this
country has ever had. The cur
rency is secured by a dep9sit of U.
S. Bonds in the United States
Treasury, and the notes circulate in
all parLs of the country, and the bil.
holders are absolutely safe even if
the bank 'hould fail.
We believe it would be a great
calamity to the country sho.-d Con
gress repeal the 10 per cent. tax on
Bank circulation and allow the
States to charter Banks of issue.
The result would be that the cot"1
try would be flooded with an irre
deemable currency issued by Banks
with no securitybut the stockhold
ers' liability ; and it would open the
way for speculators and adventur
ers to oi-ganize Banks of issue whose
notes wor'd not circulate away from
home, and in many cases wor'd re
sult in disaster to the billholder.
We hold it to be the duty of the
government to protect its citizens
in~ the issue of a sound currency,
'and one that will circulate freely in
all parts of the United States. A d
we think the present system the
-best that can be des ised. The gov
ernment should take up the Treas
ury notes as fast -as the National
Banks will issue their circulation
to take its place, which they would
soon do if the government shorld
relieve them of the tax of 10 per
cent. on their circulation and the
tax of 4i per cent. on deposits.
'While politicians are making a
great deal of capital of the Greepm
back question, we think that with
the resumption of specie payments,
which will certainly take place the
1st of January next, the country
will be satisfied with the present
circulation, and the question will
not enter into the elections of 1880.
The Republican Convention of
Darlington County has nominated a
ticket composed of colored Radicals,
white Radicals, white Independents
and white Democrats.
The Richiand County Repupli
cans have nominated for the Senate,
Andrew Lee, white ; for the House,
A.'W. Curtis, col., E. W. Weston,
eol., W. R. Marshall, white.
The Lancaster Republicans have
made a straight-out nomination for
the Legislature ; a white IRepubli
can for the Senate, and a white and
a black Republican for the House.
The Democratic Convention of
Charleston County, on the 15th
inst., nominated Gen. Rudolph Seig
ling for the Senate and seventeen
members for the House, three being
Three white D)emocrats have been
arrested in Sumiter for violation of
the Enforcement act. The affidavits
were made by CJoghlan, white Radical,
and the warrants were issued by Sam
Lee, the mulatto Radical who has
been causing so much trouble in that
County. The prisoners were carried
to Charleston Friday, where one was
discharged and the others were bailed.
The aggregate yellow fever deaths
up to the present time is over 10,
The estimated cotton crop this
year of the United States is 5,000,
000 bales, 1,000,000 of which will
come from Texas,

The Democra'ic Convention c
Charleston County, at its late sei
sion, adopted the following resoll
tion: Resolved, That it is t:
order of this Convention that n
member of this Convention, presei
at the Convention, shall be eligib
for nomination to any office.
That is strange. The cry
"send your best men to your Coi
vention, and "send your best me
to the Legislature;" but how ca
both be done in the face of such
resolution as that?
FOR THE HERALD.
How marked the change in ti
political aspect of South Carolina sin
the overthrow of Radical commoti(
in "76. T- cc is not a true heart
citizen-not an individual who
possessed of the least fragment
patriotism-who does not feel, wellih
up in his bosom, a spontaneous tc(
ing of thankfulness to the Suprea
Ruler of events, for this miarvelo
change. The circumstances by whi
we were then surrounded are st
fresh in our minds. It was nothi
unusual to see flaming up in t
gloom of night the flame of the i
cendiaries torch, not at all a nov
scene for peaceable and inoffensi
citizens ' be roused from their slu
bers by the roaring flames or t
crashing timbers of their burni
buildings ; life itself was by no mea
secure. The great mass of our pegi
had come to look upon corrupti
and theft in government officials as
matter of course; nothing but fal
hood and perjury in our courts w
hoped for, which rendered it next
impossible to reach and punish crin
of the most atrocious nature. T
most sacred rights of citizens we
desecrated with most unblushing ar:
auce. The groans and murmurin
of an oppressed and 'poverty strick
people, :were treated with suprei
contempt by the party then in pov
and by-the miscrable autocrat w
was set up to misdirect the affairs
the nation. The heart sickens in cc
templating the terrible scourge
flicted upon the Southern people
the miserable horde of thieving va
pires which Radical misrule sent do
among them to plunder and oppr
them. But thanks to a benefie(
Providence, with ?ne of the noble a
honored sons of her soil at the hel
our beloved State has emerged fr<
the gloom and oppression of that t
ig period, and to-day the sun of pr
perity bids fair to dispel the last ~
tage of the desponding darkness whi
then enshrouded her, and to quidl
into life her prostrate energies a
resources. The present is not, p
haps, in all respects, just as we woi
have it, nor could we reasonably
pect that the ship .of State woi
right up and sail smoothly in so sh
a time after escaping from the terri
breakers through which it has pass
and the injuries which it has sustain,
Are. we not having a glorious gove:
ment when compared to that of t
years ago ? We feel secure in I
possession of life, liberty and prope
and the laws are fairly administer
in every part of the State.
The future promises well if eve
citizen will do his duty. The b:
thoght of a repetition of the es
through which we have passed, shioi
cause us to avoid any course whi
has the least appearance of a possi
ity of jeopardizing the advantas
which we have struggled so hard
obtain. Let us, by our united effor
determine to hold the ground whi
we have won. It is unfortunate:
our County that there is so much d
content manifested concerning the ;
tion of the County Convention at
last meeting. Some have gone so
as to put out a ticket in opposition
the regular nominees. This is
wrong and in direct opposition to t
interest of the party. But fortunati
they have not, as yet, been able
find one who is willing to endans
the success of the party for the sat
faction of personal ambition. Soi
who have been called upon have
fused, and we hope and believe
will refuse to become candidates
such terms. Although there are
good many in this part of the Coue
who are not pleased with the nomnii
tions, yet they are almost unanimo
in the determination to support it, a
look down with contempt upon al
one who would suffer himself to
put out in opposition to it. At
meeting of Smobkey Town Club a n
tion to.support the regular nominati
was almost unanimously carried a
we trust and believe that this is t
general feeling throughout the Count
Other parts of the State are unit

be behind in contributing her sha
in accomplishing this object. No o
who is reasonable has ever hoped th
every individual could be pleas

FOR THE HERALD.
MEsSRs. EDIToRs: Allow me throug
your out-spoken and manly columns to hay
e a little talk with the fifty-one who silentl:
0 but most earnestly and sincerely oppose
it the uncalled-for resolution adopted by th
le fifty-seven on the memorable day of ou
last Democratic County Convention.
What is now to be done? ShAll we stat
is aloof and cry "hands off," while the cot
flict is raging ? Shall we say to the fift;
I seven, As you did not consult us as to tI
mode of battle, and virtually denied us ti
privilege of assisting you in putting forwat
,n the standard bearers in the struggi
we will now withhold our support and I
you fight alone ? It is true that both armi
are, to a considerable extent, demoralize
yet the fight goes on, and as the day a
pointed for the final battle approaches,
will continue to wax warmer and warme
t. Shall not the fifty-one, at least on this Ia
day, when the decision is to be made, wil
ie their united forces, join in with the fift
ce seven and completely and forever demoli
)n that party which has been the occasion
so much ruin, shame and corruption ?
d If things have not been done accordiE
1 to our way of thinking-if injustice h
of been practiced, still we have much le
worth fighting for. We have a Hampto
not a partisan, not a fire-eater, not a po
little selfish, sneaking office-seeker. th
would sell all for self aggrandizement, b
1S a man, a noble Christian man, the grandt
h man,-(statesman) in our opinion, upon tl
ill American Continent. We have gentlemin
upon the State ticket along with Hampto
And then we have an Aiken, true to hit
he self, to his country, to you, to me, to al
n- a man who stands opposed to class legis
el tion, to monopolies, and who is the frie:
of the laboring man; who, if he coul
would sweep from the country those t
- thousand ills and curses brought upon
lie by a monied power which tend to make t
ac rich richer and the poor poorer. This tr
ns man "has an opponent; the others mi
have. Surely we ought to contend manfu.
)le for them. And although we oppose a:
OD condemn, and shall forever do so, the ma
a ner in which the nominations were ma
5e- for the Legislature by the late Cout
,a Convention, yet we have good and tr
men, South Carolinians to the manor bor
to upon the ticket who are not in the least
es blame for the mistake that has been ma<

re greater importance can be suggested.
must be decided avd that in a very sli
0- time. It is now too late to call togeth
s the members of the Convention and a
en them to undo what has been so wrongfu
ne done. In our opinion this should have be
der eoae imniediately after the adjournment
the late meeting. It is always best, ho
110 ever humiliating it may be, to retrace o
of steps to the place wLere we took the wro
>n- path and get ourselves right. Such a cont
often saves much repentance and many :
b rets and tears. But the die is cast, a
by o-morrow, so- to speak, is the last dv
ul- Let us forget the present and everythi
vn that mars our peace, and look to the futu
SS We have nothing to be ashamed of, nothi
nt to .r pent of. Our record is clear, and
years to come we can refer with pride
nd the vote of the fifty-one. We mustr
L, condemn the fifty-seven, at least not all
>mi them. I1 have too much confidence int
patriotism and nobleness of heart of ma
who voted with the fifty-seven to belie
seven for a mement, that they acted frt
is impure motives, that the wrong commiti
ehi was intentional upon their part. Some
en them see now, as we saw then, that
uadopt that resolution under the then ext
nduig circumstances, was setting a most d:
yr gerous precedent, and that suca action b<
LId at least the appearance of putting a p
2-. mium upon political dissension and stri
ild But they were sincere in what they d
Division, strife and hatred were threateni
rto sap thueyfadation upon which
Ale rested. Honest, patriotic men were anxion
ed looking each other in the face and scriou;
d asking, what shall we do for the best? T
idea was entertained by some that perha
the best solution of the dilliculty would
wo to nominate the two individuals . wh<
he criends were warring with each other. T
-ty idea oni the morning of the Convention a
don the day before was.warmnly pressed b:
few influential men, some residents a
some,.non-residents of the County. Sot
.y of the delegates were led to believe tI
three-fourths or four-fifths of the Conv<
etion was in favor of such a movement, a
ls that- all breaches would be closed up a
Ld and no othsers made; and that this was t
ch best and quickest way out of our dific
- ties, and f'or any man to withhold his
fluence from the movement would be
es commit a blunder that might, perhaj
to lead to blood-shed and the defeat of
ts,. party. Having but little time for reflectik
cb many doubtless thus voted for a resoluti
ir that, perhaps, they would not vote for1
.day. We do not say that all were tht
is governed, neither do we say that all s
1c- the terrible mistake that has been ma<
its but we do give it as our candid opini
ar that had not such influences been broug
to bear ~upon the minds of delegates tI
to the resolution in the form in which it a
all offered would have never been adopted, a
he that the day is coming when the people
Bly Newberry County will refer to this matt
as a time when a dangerous precedent w
to established and a grand mistake m~ade.
:er If the gentlemen nominated had been 1:
t- in the field in the regular way, we wou
tIe to-day hear of but little opposition to t
e- ticket; which fact goes to show that t
dissatisfaction arises more from the mann
in which the nominations were made th
D to the nominees themselves. Therefot
a the great majority of the dissatisfied a
ty called on to overlook, for the present
aleast, the doings of the Conyention, forg<
ating for the sake of the County the appi
us ent injustice in the case, and rising up am
ad doing their duty like men, even if it has
lbe done under protest. Those who obje
be to the men ncminated, and we knowv th
in nearly every instance that such objectio
a in individual cases extend only to one ma
0- and in iome fe' instances, perhaps r,) tws
yn are calel upo'. for the sake of country,
id. they can Ott-out doing violence to the
bei feelings, to vot,e the whole tipket. Som
we know, cannrot vote the entire ticket, ai
7-we are the last man to say to such, sti:
ad conscience, throw away self-respecr,
ot violence to every principle of honor, sh
ryour eyes and take[the dose. No, we <
rnot say that, but we do say to all th
re we ought to be very certain that we wou
D be thus acting before we conclude that s
at will scratch out a single name from th
ad ticket. But if we find, after proper refle
-tion, after carefully weighing all matte
upertaining to the subject ~in t.he sc.ales
'justice and patriotism, that we cannot vo
ig the ticket in fall then we should quiet
to cut out the offensive name or names ar
yote the balance of the ticket. This tick
bis our only chance for success; therefore v
can conscientiously ask even our color<
U friends to vote for it, beligving that it wjli I
as far better for them and us that said tick
should be elected over theirs.
*This seems to be the best, wisest ar
re iost patriotic course for the fifty-one art
o their friends to pursue. The party mut
. come together, not to justify what td
1-. Convention has done, not to declare th:
d the very beet ticket that cogid be faum
hias be'en putj in tie field, nor to encourag
ithe party to repeat such a thing two yeam
h hence; neither to encourage office-socket
that such things will always be successi'
and that the people will quickly acquiest
in them; but to conie together to win
fight over a terrible enemy, for the sake<
people, of home and friends, of wives an
children and all else that we hold dea:
., Let us enter the fight, help again this victor3
n.1 n edta wheall issafne. when th 'e gran
ai~d then when all is safe, when the prau
we may not pull." And if there should be
any who love office more than country, let ..
h us frankly say to such that the day for that -
kind of patriotisin is past, that having been
e rocked in the cradle of adversity, educated

in conjunction with two others,' namely, Dr.
Wm. M. Dorroh and John T. Peterson, Esq.,
0 in nonination for the Legislature by persons
t whose nanes are not disclosed. I have be
lot lieved all along that those nominations would
of fall to the ground without any action on my
be part, especially after the withdrawal of
ay Judge Peterson, which I had every reason to
rbelieve would take place at the proper time;
-but if this ticket is to appear again I feel tbat
emy silence might create a misapprehension
ed inregad to my position in the premises.
of I aebeen nominated for a seat in the
to Legislature by a Democratic Convention of
st- this County, called by the proper authority
n and regula~rly constitated and organized. It
ris trne that I did not seek a nomination, and
rethat I consented to become a candidate only
e at the urgent solicitatioir of friends who in
fsisted that I could serve the interest of the
Id Democracy by so doing. But having received
ng and accepted the position of one of the
wve standard-bearers of the organized Democracy
ily of the County, I feel it my duty to stand by
-ly that nomination and cannot consent to a
le nomination on any tigket that conflicts with
the regular Democratic nominations.
.p I do not wish to be understood as rejecting
be the votes at the ballot box, of those who
Is h appen not tohave had part in my nomination
1is by the Convention; on the contrary I desire

Sanord's Analytical Arith
By S. P. SANFORD, A.M., L,L.D., Mercer
University, Macon, Ga.
These Arithmetics have been in accepta
ble use in leading Schools in this State and
other States for several years. Hon. Hug
o wrtig as now, ,Principal of Male Acad
ey at Clmbia),says ofr tperiot
any that I have seen in the fulness of the
examples, the clearness and simDlletty of
the analyses, and the accuracy of Te rules
and definitions. Tis8 opinion is based upon
a full age4 thorough test in the school-room.
To those teachers who may examine these
Arithmetics with reference to introduction,
I would especiall y commend the treatment
of Percentage and Profit and Loss. No text
books that I have ever used are so satisfac
For nine ty daysnfrom No. 1st next, San
