Xe Comes Out Boldly for Coercive Govern
VAIN1XGTON, .May 12--Tlie Pres

Renresentatives thp "Act to prohibit

with his objectiovs to its approval.
The President says: "Holding, as

siring to concur with i'ongrcss in all

^The true rule as to the emuplov
ment of military force at elections is
not doubtful. No intimidation or
coercion should be allowed to control
or influence citizens in the exercisc
of their right to vote, whether it av
pears in the shape of combinations of
evil disposed. persons or of arned
bodies of the militia of a State or Lf

diers, either of the Union or of the
State militia, should be present at the
polis to take the place or perform the
duties of the ordinary civil police
force. There has becu and will be nu
violation of this rule under order,
from me during this admistration

right of the national goverunimeat to
employ its military forice on any dav
and at any place in case such em

"At the most critical periods of
our history my predecessors in the
Executive office have relied on this
great principle. It was on this priu
ciple that President Washington sup.
pressed the whiskey rebellion in Penn
sylvania in 1794. In 1806, on the
same principle, President Jefferson
broke up the Burr conspiracy by
;ssIing orders for the employment of
such force, either of the regulars or of
militia, and by such proceedings ofthe
civil authorities as might enable themi
to suppress effectually the further
progress of the enterprise, and it was
under the same authority that Pres
ident Jackson crushed Nullification in
South Carolina, and that President
-Lincoln issued his call for troops to
nave the Union in 1861. On nuire
rous other occessions of less signifi
cance, under probably every adminis
stration and cert: inly under the pres
ent, this power has been usefully ex
erted to enforce the laws, and without
ojection by any party in the country,
-fnd almost without attracting public
attention. The great elementary cu
stitutional principle which was the
foundation of the original statute of
1792, and which has been its essence
in the various forms it has assumed
since its first adoption, is that the Gov
ernment of the United States possesses
under the Constitution, in full measure,
the power of self-protection by its own
agencies, altogether independent of
State authority, and, if need be.
against the hostility of State govern
ments. It should remain embodied in
our statutes unimpaired, as it has been
from the very origin of the govers
ment. It should be regarded as hard
ly less sacred than a provision of the
Constitution itself. There are many
other important statutes containing
provisions that are liable to be sus
pended or annulled at the times and
places of holding elections, if the bill
before me should become a law.
* * * * Another grave objec
tion to the%ill is its discrimination in
favor of the State and against the
National authority. The presence or
employment of the army or navy of
the United States is lawful under the
terms of this bill at the place where
election is being held in a St te gov
verniment, then and there in need of
such military,.intervention, but unlaw
ful to uphold the authority of the
Government of the Ubited States,
then and there in need of such mili
*tary intervention. Under this bill
the presence and employment of the
army or navy of the United States
would be neeessary to maintain the
conduct of a State election against the
domestic violence that would over
throw it, but would be unlawful to
miaintain the conduct of a National
election against the same local violence
that would overthrow it. This dis
crimination has never been attempted
in any previous legislation by Con
gress, and is no more compatible
with sound principl-s of the Consti
tution o'r the necessary maxims and
mnethods of our system of government
ou oceasons of elections than at other
times. ****Although I be
liev'e that the existing statutes are
abundalJtiy adequate to completely
pr-event military interference with the
elections in the sense in which the
phrase is used in the title of this bill.
aind is employed by the people of this
country, 1 shall find no difficulty in
concurring in any additional legis!a

The hast meeting of our pring
Wnw held at Prosperity
chulru, Newberry county. The meet
int began on Saturday and eiksed
Sabbath night. The Plastor, Rev. .1
C. BoYd, is a large hearted. g-enrrous
tan. We were only asked to do the
work of the two d1ays-that is, to
preach twice Saturday and three times
on Sal.bath, and of eour;e we tried to
do it. The congregatio-ns were large.
On Sabbath the house was packed.
morning and afternoon. The service
at night was in the academy in the
towl of Prosperity, the church being
nearliy a mile out.
Of the people of Prosperity we have
often spoken, for it is- one of the places
to which we make an annual visit.
Look over the minutes of Presbytery
and of Synod. if you would know
them. Their record is clear. They
always pay their pastor, and their ap
portioniment of Synodical expenses.
No congregation in Synod, that we
I know of, has a better record in this
respect. Is there any better test of
Christian character ? A man may be
liberal without being a Christian
but how can any one lay claim to be
ing a Christian who does not pay his
pastor, and who does not contribute to
the support of the enterprises of tie
Church ? To give, is just as plain
a Christian duty as to pray, and
prayer is the breath of Christian life.
No man ought to satisfy himself that
he is a Christian who does not pray,
I frequently, regularly. So, neither
ought a member of the Church to be
satisfied with his condition if lie does
not pay his proportionate part of
Church expenses. The people of
Prosperity pay, and we think it is
fair to infer that they pray.
'We had a good time with these
people, as we always do. It was an
e-ujoyable occasion, and we did not
get much tired either. The people
also seemed to enjoy the meeting, and
we hope good was done. There were
one or two incidents; that occurred
during the occasion that started tears
of joy in the eyes of more than one.

We heard the proposition to re
move the church into the town of
Prosperity discussed in more circles
than one. It struck us as being a good
idea. The plan is to remove the
church to some central place in the
town, put in new and larger windows,
new pews, &c., so as to modernize the
old building ; than to add the present
church lot to the cemetery adjacent,
and make a village cemetery of it.
IThe church, it is said, would be more
convenient to the members of the con
gregation in the town than where it
now stands, and it would suit tihe
peo~ le of the town a great deal better.
No one would be put to inconvenience
by the change, and some would be
greatly benefitted. Service at night
has now to be held in the academy.
.Che means can be raised to make the
change, if the consent of all the memi
bers can be obtained.
Monday morning, before l1eaving,
we called at the academy, and found
our friend and former pupil, Mrs.
Long, busy teaching "the young idea
how to shoot." It was pleasant to
hear the late School Commissioner of
the county say that she was one of
the most effieient teachers that he had
under his charge. She has been
teaching in Prosperity .for several
years, and is doing a good work.
Prosperity is one of'the best busi
ness places in the country ; but we
would think it would be still more
prosperous if it had fewer drinking
saloons. But if Newberry village can
cairy a full scre, it may be that
Prosperity can live with three.
Since our last annual visit, the
Lutherans have reconstructed their
church. It is now very neat and at
tractive externally. It is the only
church building in the 'town. Rev.
J. Hawkins, editor of the Lutheran
Visitor, is the ac.ceptable and efficient
pastor. We were sorry to find him
in feeble health.

T. B. CREWS,
May 19. 1879.
No event that has transpired for
years has prodtced so widespread
a sensation as that which took place
at the village of Pocasset, in Massa
chusetts, May 1st. This place con
tains a large number of those known
as Second' Adventists-religionists
who look for the second coming of
the Lord at an early day, and who
believe firmly in the continuance of
revelations, signs and miracles 's
in' the days when Christ was on
earth. Chas. F. Freeman was of
this faith ; was a prominent leader.
He conceived the idea that it was
his duty to follow the example of
Jacob, who offered up his son Isaac.
He professed-and in htis fanati
cism, he undoubted ly believed-that
God had revealed to him that he
must offer up one of his famnily as a
sacrifice, and that this offering r1ms.t
be his little daughter Edith, a
brhight, flaxen-hiaire~d girl, the yet
of the household. TIhe mother~
p)leadied for the child ; lbut ni .
gav her consent, her husband hav
ing persuaded her that she was re
sisting the will of Geoi, and that
lie would either interpose to pre
vcr t the fatal blow or would raise
up the dead child. The deed was
done, the father phunging the knife
into the heart of his sleeping child.
The Second Adventists behe ived,
with Freeman, that God would
raise up the child the third day.
Freenman and his wife were placed
in jail. Doctors examined them,
and prionounced them sane. Free
mnan's delusion has not left him;
he still believes that he acted under
(divine directionf, and is cheerful and
content. The mother though, who
gave her relheiant consent to the
killing of the child, has; been comn
pletely prostrated with grief and
remlorse, and has wept cnstantfly
day and night, refusing for several
days lately to take any food ; and
it is thought that she will (lie of a
b)roken heart. The Adventists in
general still approve the act, and
the *only indignation they feel on
the sub:ject is that God should comn
mand tire deed to be done, and then
should refuse to restore the child
by a miracle. This horrible deed
in the Nineteenth Century and in
the enlightened State of Massachu
setts almost passes comprehenidn.
The Freemans are not ignorant
people ; the Adventists of Pocasse$
possess tihe usual intelligence that
belongs to American communities
in general. It shows the power
and the cvil-of religious fanaticism.
And now tihe murderer of his own
child takes tile ground that he
shoul not be punished, and he ap
peals to the American Constitution
which guarantees freedom of reli
gions belief. Of course this can
avail him nothing. Yet, is there
not tolerated now in the Territory
of Utah, a "religious belief" which,
fhough not so shocking and horri
ble to contemplate, still is as per
nicious as the offense for which
Freeman must answer with his

Unveiling the Confederate Monument.
The Confederate dead are bound
to us by the strongest ties; by ties
that entwine themselves with the
tenderest, holiest and best traits of
human sentiment. They were bro
thers, fathers, husbands, sons; they
died in a glorious cause though
now called the "Lost Cause"-the
defense of State rights and political
liberty; they have been called by
the outside world "rebels." It was
fitting, therefore, and a duty we
owed them, to tes;ify our apprecia
tion of their valor and patriotism.
In 1869 the first ste)s wvere taken
toward erecring a monument to
perpetuate their memory.
HISTORY AND DESCRIPTION OF THE
A small meeting was held in
Washington Street Chapel, Novem
ber 4th, 1869. Money was collect
ed from time to time. In 1871 the
Monumental Association purchased
from the City of Columbia a site on
Taylor's Hill on which to erect the
monument, bnt finding the site un
suitable they abandoned it, after
-having paid the price--600. The
foundation of the monument was
thence removed to Elmwood Ceme
tery. The reason the State House
grounds were not selected for the
site is apparent to all, when they
remember in whose hands these
grounds then were. As soon, how
ever, as South Carolinians got c.m
trol of affairs it was determined to
erect the monument on its present
site, and the Legislature appropria
ted $650 to assist in the erection.
The monument was made by Mul
doon, Walton & Co., of Louisville,
Ky. The base is made of South
Carolina granite presented by Judge
Jno. S. Green, from his quarry on
the Congaree. The marble shaft
and statue are of Italian marble
from Carrara. The monument
stands forty feet high, and is sur
mounted by a Confederate soldier,
eight feet high, in uniform, holding
his gun with fixed b)ayonet ; the
statue is universally pronounced to
be an excellent representation.
On the front die-stone beneath is
written the following inscription :
Perpetuates the memory
Tr-us to the instinets of their birth,
Faithful to the teachings of their
Constant in their love for the State,
Died in the performance
Of their duty;
Have glorified a fallen cause
By the simple manhood of their lives,
The patient endurance of suffering,
And the heroism- of death ;
In the dark hours of imprisonment,
In the hopelessness of the. hospital,
In the short, sharp agony of the fieht
Their support and consolaition
In the belief
That at home they would not be for

Who may in future times
Read this inscription,
Recognize that these were men
Whom Power could not corrupt,
Whom Death could not terrify,
Whom Defeat could not dishonor,
And let their virtues plead for just
Of the cause in which they perished.
Let the South Caro!inian
Of another generation
Who may read this roll of honored
That the State taught them
How to live and how to die,
And that from her broken fortunes

companies, splendidly uniformed i
and well drilled, made a magnificent
display. Over ten thousand peo
ple were present, ald everything
p:ssed off in the happiest possibl(e
m1anfle'. The city resounded with
salutes from the artillery, the bands
plyed inspiring strains. the old
battle torn flags that had waved
over so many present floatd in the
breeze, and the eves of Carolina's
fair danghters spatked with joyful
plvasure at beholding this work of
tiir hands. When the veil was
lifted from the statue a good old
"rebel yell" went up from a thous
and throats, and was repeated again
and again. The scene was one that
will ever be remembered with feel.
ings of pride and pleasure.
There is a great deal of Bun
combe talking and writing about
the President's veto. Many Demo.
cratic newspapers accuse the Demo
eratic Congressmen of lack of "back
bone," and twit them with "backing
down." They say that the Demo
crats should insist on passing the
appropriation bills with the riders,
and if Hayes continues to veto, let
the responsibility fall on him. This
is the sheerest nonsense. The veto
is a Constitutional prerogative
whether a wise one ~or not we do
not undertake to say. The only
legitimate way of passing a meas
ure against the wishes of the Chief
Executive is to pass it over his veto
by a two-thirds vote. This the
Democrats cannot do ; and they
have acted wisely in yielding and
declining to keep the army and other
departments of the government out
of their pay.
Feeling is not politics; politics is
founded on reason.
C. McKinley, who is now in
Washington, writes thus to the
News and Courier :
I saw Dr Mary Walker to-day.
She was attired, so far as I could
see, just like any other man. A
nicely fitting black cloth frock coat
of a strictly masculine pattern made
up the outer woman. His hat was
of brown straw, and she had on a
standing collar and black cravat.
Her shir-t fr-ont (I suppose it is a
shirt) was pleated and neat and
snowy- I don't think upon reflec
tion that he could have had on a
corset. Didn't look so at any rate.
She carr-ied a cane in one hand and
a parasol in the other. His coat
came down below her knees, and
its hair was cut so as to just about
hide his coat collar. She exerted a
good deal of attention as he always
does, I am informed, but took it
very quietly and behaved very pro
perly. He was clean shaved, by
nature, and wore a pair of close fit
ting black kid gloves. She was
talking with one or two other wo
men, and I must confess that jer
sober attire compared vet'y favora

\VASHINoTON, D. C.,
May 14, 1879.
It was a surprise to all yesterday,
when the Senate, by a decisive vote,
concurred with the House in the pro
position directing the Secretary of the
Treasury to use for the payment of the
arrears of ,pensions the eight or ten
millions of money in his vaults, held
there to redeem fractional currency
long since worn out. It was surpris
ing, not because there was any reason
able objection to such a course, but.
becase the vote showed a willingness
to act upon financial matters. So far
as the pensioners are concerned the
vote is of no consequence, as there is
plenty of money in the Treasury to
pay them. That they are not paid is
the fault of the Secretary of the Treas
ury, or the Secretary of the Interior,
or both. The interest on bonds is the
only money that Secretary Sherman
pays out cheerfully and promptly.
Yesterday before the vote alluded to,
Senator Booth attacked the course of
the Secretary vigorously.
The proposition mentioned above
was a part of the Legislative appropri
ation bill, and will, of course, share
he fate of that bill. Opinions differ

the bill goes to him, as it will in a

MESSRS. EDITORS : The city of
Newberry is progressing and there are
already erected on Caldwell Street
three brick buildings, built on "burnt
district" by Mrs.'Mower & Son, near
ly completed. One finished and occu.
pied as a barber shop by Tobe Daw
kins, who is a polite and entertaining
knight of the razor and shears, and
does his work in French style, a mode
appreciated in this fashionable and
thriving city. * The next will be used
as the Post Office by that accomplish
ed and accommodating officer, Mr.
Boone, and the third by Harriet Ken
nedy as a restaurant, where the hun
gry can be made happy at all hours
with the nicest and best.
Tahe sidewalk from the corner of
Friend Street to the depot platformn is
being put in splendid order by our
accomaplished city officers, and prepa.
ration is going ahead for building up
the entire burnt portion of the city.
Messrs. T. C. Pool and 0. L. Sebum
pert are now eng7aged in mkn
one million of bricks for the pur
pose of building a Hotel on th~e
old site. This Hotel is intended
to be one of the best in the State;
underneath will be five stores of
first class. Others are engaged in
making large quantities of bricks.
Mrs. Mower & Son will put up three
or four houses ; Jeff. Lane, one ; Cash,
one; Mrs. Paysinger, one ; Beard,
one. Tihese stores, with the excep
tion of the latter, will all be built of
brick. .Beard, I have been informed,
intends to put up a frame building.
I hope lie will change his notion and
build of briek, to correspond with the
balance. These stores, including those
under the Hotel, are a!l on. Main
Street, in the most business part of
the city, and will be built of best ma
terial and fire-p'roof. Our people,.have
passed through the fiery furnace, and
the past experience will work to our
good. The intelligent citizen who
bought four lots on Friend Street, I
hatve been informed, designs building a
fine bachelor's cottage. Thus we will
have eleven or twelve good stores by
Fall. IIere is an opening for enter
prising merchants to come here and
start business. This city has a trade
of about one.fourth of a million of dol
lars, and about 25,000 bales of cotton
are shipped from this place per annum;
besides the quantity of beef, pork;
mutton, chickens, eggs, &c., that our
6,000 people of this place consumes is
tremendous. Of all people they are
the greatest eaters I have ever been
among. This city has all conveniences:
one of the best conducted banks in the
State, officers accommuodating, and al.
ways plenty of money ; good schools ;
good and able preachers; efficient

because her husband could not affu:d
to go, .but whose fresh complexion
and bright eyes seem to have caught
their bloom and brightuess from
Mrs. B.-Dear mie, Mrs. White,
how well you are looking ! If you
will not think me impertinent, let me
ask how you can keep so healthy in
this dreadful city ? I have been to
the White Mountains, go there every
summer, in fact, and I can't keep off
the doctors's list at that.
Mrs. W. (sm iling).-I'll tell you
the whole secret, Mrs. Brown. You
remember how poorly I was last
spring, sonic days even being confined
to my bed. Dr.-told Mr. White to
seud me to the mountai.ns, but I
knew he couldn't afford it, and I tried
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription.
Its effects. were so marvelous that I
also tried his Golden Medical Dis
covery, to cleause my system. In my
opinion, one bottle of the Prescrip
ti->n and the Discovery is better than
six weeks of the White Mountains for
a sick woman. .I have only been out
of the city a week during the whole
summer; then my husband and I
went to Buffalo and stopped at Dr.
Pierce's Invalids' and Tourists' Hotel.
The baths and mechanical apparatus
for treating patients were alone worth
going to see. Besides, our accommo
dations were better thnn we had at
Long Branch last year, and the drives
and scenery are superb. Let me ad
vise you to use Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription, and try the Invalidj' and
Tourists' Hotel next summer instead
of the White Mountains.
The Latest Invention in UTsetul
Within the last few years there has been
expended a great deal oT inventive thought
and genius upon what may properly be class
ed as household articles, the most noted re
suits of which are the production of the sew
ing machine, the wringer, the washing ma
chine, the carpet sweeper, &c. Almost every
week we chronicle the advent of some new
invention by which the cares and labors of
housekeeping are lessened, and woman's
The newest thing to efallenge our attention
and gladden the heart of the housekeeper, is,
what isalled the NOVELTY BRUSH HO l -
ER, C$RPET STRETCHER and SWEEPER, a
very simple con trivance designed to' firmly
hold in position any kind of a brush or dust
er; having an extension handle that enables
one to wash or dust windows, walls or ceil
ings without the aid of a step ladder. That
is one of its conveniences, and it is also one
of the best carpet sweepers in the market,
holding the bru-lh firmly at.an angle. It
cleans the carpet thoroughly. raises no dust,
and does not wear the carpet like the ordina
ry broom or brush, and wi'l outwear a half
dozen blooms. As- a handle for the scrub
bing brush it is the best device ever made,
no more knecling on the floor, no more back
aches or sore fingers.
As a carpet stretcher alone it is worth its
cost, as a carpet of any size can be laid even
ly without any of the labor and vexation
usually attending such work. It is strong;
simple, thoroughly made, cannot get out of
order, has no screws, lever or hinges, is com
pact, cheap and durable.
It is manufactured by Brown & Co., Cin
cinnati, the well knows manufacturers of
useful household articles, and is sold only by
their agents to housekeepers. The real u tili
ty of this article will at once be seen by those
most interested, and we predict for it a large
sale. Every housekeeper in the land will
