A PAPER FOR THE PEOPLE.

Once in a while the govelr-aent
awakes to the iniquities of Mor
monism, and for a little while re
minds one of the old lady in her
periodical "spazzuros." In 1862
Congress passed a rigid law pro
viding severe punishment for those
who shorld have more 'C:ves than
one, whether they belonged to the
Latter Day Saints or otherwise.
For seventeen years this law lay dor
nant in the statute books, and the
Mormon men went on marrying as
many women as they chose. A few
months ago the "spazzom" return
ed, in a modified form; Re3.aolds,
a Mormon elder, was convicted of
bigamy, or polygamy, and sentenced
to the penitentiary. He appealed,
and kept on appealing +ll he got to
the U. S. Supreme Court which
confirmed the conieti.on. Rey
nolds was, nominally, sent to the
penitentiary, where he enjoys near
ly as much liberty and as maly
converiences as he ever diO his
wives being peiirtted to -'sit him
whenever so inclined. His pr-i
ishment is a sham. George Q.
Cannon, Congressman from Utah,
,a )knion elder, has vAtten and
.Vublished a pamphlet ciit;ci2'ng
the decision of the highest Cor-t
of the coti'try, declarng it not
law, and ad'ising his people to c's
regard it-and Cannon is not in
jail for contempt. The Mormons
are rapidly increasing in nr'nabers ;
they have their etrissaies in- all
parts of the world, who are inducing
immigration. Only a few weeks
ago two Mormon elders were tra
versing the Northern part of Geor
gia, boldly preaching their hellish
doctrines, poring into the ears of
women and girls the beauties of
Utah and the Mormon religion.
They were creating wide-spread
dissatisfaction; families were being
broken up. Some of the ci+'zens
rightfully determined to put a stop
to these proceedings ; they met the
two elders, and proposed to give
them a "dressing-off' as a lesson
to them. While they were tonder
. arrest one of the elders, named
Standing, grasped a pistol in the
hands of one of the crowd, and was
immediately shot down. And it
was called "A brutal outrage and
murder." For several weeks Mor
mon proselytes have been practicing
their arts with success in the Coun
ties of Clay and Cherokee, North
Carolina. The people could stand
it no longer, and have given them
thirty days to arrange their affairs
and leave or take the consequences.
One of the elders writes to the Gov
ernor complaiining of "their abridge
ment of their religious liberty."
The North Carolinians and Geor
gians are treating them right. They
deserve no more quarter than liber
tines and seducers, and if the gov
ernment will not suppress them the
The last manifestation of the
"spazzum" broke out in the "White
House" a few days ago. The Cabi
net at Washington agreed on a let
-ter, the 8th instant, to be sent to
the different European govern
ments, protesting against the con
duct of these governments in allow
ing their subjects to emigrate to
the United States as Mormons.
This is a piece of nonsense. It is
not the business of foreign govern
ments to know the "religion" of
their subjects, nor to know in what
capacity they emigrate, nor to pre
vent their emigrating. But it is
the business of this government to
suppress polygamy, and it could
easily do so if the attempt were
made in earnest.

Crayton, of Anderson, President of
the State Agrievltural Society, and
Hon. J. N. Lipscomb, Master of the
State Grange, presided jointly.
Addresses of welcome were deliver
ed by representatives of the tova,
which were responded to by the
presidents. Hon. A. P. Butler, of
Aiken, 2ish Cow-nissioner, read an
essay on Fish Culture, and Comp
troller-General Johnson Hagood
one on stock-raising. Both gentle
men had subjects % ith which they
are practically familiar, and their
essays were both interesting and
instructive. After the reading of
each essay a general discussion by
the delegates followed.
A resolution was adopted to me

reward of $10,000 for the invention
of a machine that will spin yarn
from seed cotton.

address on the uses and purposes
of the Grange. Dr. Lartigae, of

Stewart's Body is a-marching
The body of the late A. T. Stsw

of New York, which was stolen sev
eral months ago from the family

Parties in possession of the body
have made a proposition to return
it on the payment of $250,000, and
no questions asked. The parties
are in Canada, and have established
the genuineness of their offer by
sending to New York the silver plate
and handles of the casket in which
the body was bu':ied. The magnifi

the reception of the body is nearly
completed. It is said that Judge
Hilton and Mrs. Stewart refuse to
comply with the terms of the body
The New York World still insists
that the body has been recovered
by the family paying $50,000.
Stewart's body has become as

An interview has at last been
achieved with Mr. Tilden. It was
not a regular "interview," for the
newspaper man got his report from a
member of Congress who had talked
with President T. But it has much
of the vigor of the great New Yorker,
and is evidently genuine if not entire
ly accurate. Mr. Tilden speaks confi
deutly of the future of the country,
believing that we are just entering
upon a long era of prosperity. Ile
believes the Democrats will win in
1880. le ardently desires the suc
cess of Ewing in Ohio, though he does
not agree with all his financial ideas.
A report is current in Republican
circles here that Senator Ilamlin is
desirous of imitating the Old Wiune
bago Chief of Pennsylvania, by select
ing his own son to succeed him in the
Senate. This programme of the wily
old Senator, if carried out, would of
course be exceedingly pleasing to the
Hamlin family, but it happens that
the Deuiocrats and Greenbackers of
Maine propose to have a hand in the
election of a Senator from that State
which will spoil the nice arrangement
of the Penobseot Chief. If intelligent
nien of the Democratic and Greenback
parties of that State may be relied on
they expect, together, to carry both
branches of the Legislature. They
have united in every County on the
local tickets, and can win 4f they
choose. And they seem determined
to do it.
The Texas Pacific Railroad Compi
fly have authorized the issue of bonds
for $24,000,000 for the completion o1f
the road, a distance of over l,20
miles. This may indicate a datern,'i
nation to build this important road
without aid from the Government, or
ine nanagers umy take this step with
the idea that earnestness on their part
will help thoem to secure the enveted
Government recoguition. It is most
likely that Col. Scott, the real head of
the enterprise, has found, duringr his
long stay abroad, that the bonds can
be disposed of at reasonable rates with
ont any Government guarantee. and
that we shall soon see the road in ac
tive process of construction.

Impudence and Ingratitude.
A certain Philadelphia Advertis
ing Agency sent us, a few days
since, an advertisement of a College
in one of our adjoining counties, to
be inserted one month and offered
us the liberal (?) sum of "$1, less
25 per cent.," which of course would
leave us 75 cents net, really worth
How these Northern Agencies
get hold of such advertisements
(for this is not the first of such
propositions) we are at a loss to
know, and can only conjectore that
>ur kind friends (?) at the head of
neighboring institutions suppose
they can get their advertising (lone
cheaper thro;ugh Northei n Agen
ies,though the work is to be done at
home. This is not only impudence
in said "friends and neighbors" but
downright ingratitude. The Prin
ipals of said institutions rarely fail
to remember tlieir neighboring Edi
tors when a Commencement is ap
roaching, and when they have "an
ax to grind." On such occasions
Editors of the neighboring news
apers are always "expected," or at
east invited. The courtous heads
of Faculties would of course prefer
that the Editor attend in pro.pria
ersona, for if present, "large as
ife," he will be expected to give a
glowing account of his trip, the po
ite attentions of the entire Faculty,
c., but above all the "gratifying
and perfect success of the occasion."
The Editor says his say--what in
luence his paper commands is ex
rted- and he is quietly laid aside
mtil "wanted" again for a similar
urpose. When patronage is to be
~iven out, however, he is forgotten
~r altogether ignored, and adver

~harpers, whom these polite Facul

The Cotiimon Schlool SyMem of
Our fourth reason for believing that
the State should maintain and develop
her present Common Free School Sys.
temu was, "That these common coun
try schools cannot and will not be sup
ported by the people ; and the same,
therefore, must be supported by the
This we regard as alone sufficient to
decide the question. If the people
were able, as prior to the late war, to
educate their children, it. might be
less cen,urable in these cormion firee
school demolishers t, pour out on ev
cry possible occasion their insurrec
tionary harangues to the detriment of
the Common Free School System ; but
they are not ; and, therefore, those
harangues are either short-sighted, or
dishonest, or both. The difference
between our condition prior to the late
war and that now, is about as great as
that between an eagle and a tortoise.
To contend, then, for an observance
now of what was practiced prior to the
recent war, and that too by means
alone of those circumstances that have
been totally changed by the war, is
certainly just as absurd as was the
fabled request of the tortoise to be
taught to fly; and an obstinate effort
in that direction will doubtless be at
tended with an equally disastrous re
sult. Of the 700,000 inhabitants of
South Carolina prior to the recent
war, perhaps upwards of 350,000 were
slaves, whose sinewy arms were busy
fror.; the morning's rosy dawn to the
dewy shades of evening in battling
for the ease and the educational facili
ties of the other portion of the popu
lation. Besides this, South Carolina
teemed with the collected wealth of
upwards of a hundred years of unsur
passed prosperity ; and, in iddition
still to this, the whole world was finan
cially "in easy circumstances." Now
we have not those 350,000 sin%wy
arms to relieve our children; our
wealth is gone "glimmering through
the dreams of things that were ;" and
the whole world is groaning under the
merciless bondage of utter penury.
Consequently, the vast majority of
our people that could once easily pay
from fifty to five thousand dollars per
annum for the educational benefit of
their children can now conscientiously
pay out nothing, comparatively speak
ing, except for food and clothing.
Thousands of our white population
will, therefore, come short of an edu
cation, unless some provision be made
for the same by State enactment. And
as this is true with regard to the
whites, how can it be otherwise than
true with regard to those 350,000 ne
groes whom the fortunes of war have
irrevocably made citizens ? But a
haughty smile of scornful contempt
distorts the proboscis of many at the
remotest suggestion of their contribu
ting anything-even a widow's two
miserable mites-towards the educa
tional benefit of the colored people.
What then ? Are these people to be
deprived of their constitutional right
of suffrage ? or enslaved again ? or
expatriated ? or exterminated ? or ed
ucated ? or shall our battered ship of
State continue forever rocking and
reeling on the restless billows of an
ocean of ignorance ? These are the
questions that present themselves to
us. If we have answered them in fa
vor of an education, it is simply be
cause we considered that the only sen
sible answer that could be given.
But there is another phase of this
subject that could be presented ; and
it is,this. We would rather that we
and every friend of ours should sleep
in endless death, than that the broad
lines of demarkation made by nature
herself between the two races should
ever be to any extent obliterated ; but
we favor the idea of preserving those
lines of demarkation, not by that pres
ent custom of traducing, vil lifying,
and degrading the negro hour by hour
under almost, if not quite, every agri
cultural roof from the "seaboard to,
the mountains"; but by that only
fficient method of withdrawing our<
inds from the morbid contemplation
f these degrading subjects, which de
rade our3elves, and fixing them for- I
ver on those high, broad, enlightened,
enerous, and refining principles which
ill elevate our race. When we take
his view and practice it, we wilJ, to
ur own,.advantage and honor at home a
nd abroad, rise above all passion,
arrowness, partisanship, prejudice, (
rror, and hatred ; know nothing but
ur own and our country's honor; and
~ay, in the name of God, humanity, s
ad reason, that it is now at length a

iarow minded baseness should loose

days of servitude was indeed sowetbing
like that of the faithful do which
knew no joy save in the smile of its
living master, and which, when that
smile was forever hidden by the shades
of death), lay Moaring in solitude to
the midnight winds until relieved by
a death of hunger. Their sinewy
arms secured for us and our children
both wealth and educatiotial facilities
before the war. To them, in a ineas
ure, we entrusted our helpless ones,
'The God of Battles stamped his foot,
And nations felt the shock."
Many of them were willing to go forth
and to fall beside their youthful mas
ters "on the field (if battle" ; and when
the sulphurous clouds of war had roll
ed away and left them freemen, they
childlike would have turned to their
former masters, bound to them as they
were by a thousand ties of mutual
confidence, and kindred labor and
kindred suffering. That we turned
away in bitterness from them, despis
ing their horny hands of friendship
and that ignorance and baseness which
we ourselves in part occasioned, and
abandoned their 'ignorant and suscep
tible minds to the eager teachings of
a lawless band of political plunderers
must be attributed to nothing else
than to that same wilful blindness
and obstinate perversity which are
still so prevalent amongst our people.
But still they are of service 'though
partially arrayed against us; for the
South is, and will continue to be, an
agricultural region. Consequently,
her hopes for future prosperity will
reside less in her
"---- dandy-despots, yea,
Those jeweled masses of millinery,
Those oiled and curled Assyrian Bulls
That smell of musk and of insolence,"
than in her. rugged, sun-burnt labor
ers. Now, no one can deny that with
all his faults the negro is our best la
borer. He is more capable, more
cheerful, more conversant with our
modes of farming, more humble, more
tractable, and generally more humane,
and patient under censure than any
other laborer we have ever tried. At
the same time, he will live in any sort
of a house, diet uncomplainingly on
the coarsest fare, wear "old clothes",
walk to church, and in various other
ways adapt himself to the poverty
stricken condition of our Southern
agriculture since the war.
At the same time, lie is not at all
responsible for his transmission hither
from the shores of Africa into bond
age here ; nor for his ignorance and
all its own legitimato evils, an educa
tion with its restraining, purifying in
fluences having been denied him by
the barbarous code of slavery ; nor
for his recent emancipation; nor yet
for much of that present want of politi
cal and industrial co-operation and
harmony which are now so materially
retarding the recuperation of every
kind of Southern industry. Why,
then, should we continue foolishly to
prate about, and dwell upon, these
matters to his injury and persecution ?
Why not give him a tithe at least of
the chance we would be compelled to
grant a German, Irish, or any other
laborer ? None of these foreigners
have ever benefited us without a satis
factory "quid pro quo" at once ; and
all were against us in the recent war.
The negro, on the other hand, material
contributed to the unsurpassed pros
perity of Southern industry; stood
"shoulder to shoulder" with us in the
recent war; and asks nothing to-day
from us but our common charity to
wards those faults we imposed upon
him by his state of slavery, until lie
can, by picking up the crumbs as it
were that fall from our educational
table, eradicate those faults and pre-1
pare himself by means of an education
to discharge all his duties towards us
as a humble laborer, with more fideli
ty, more intelligence, more sympathy,
more satisfaction, and more advantagei
to his employer. With these remarks,
we dismiss this offensive portion ofi
the subject, asking nothing but a calm i
outemplation of the facts, and the
simple reflection that if it is right and ]
beneficial to villify the negro, it should I
not be wrong and hurtful to speakt
what little good we can in his favor. t

The Race Path Road.
MEssRS. EDITORS : What is the
reason the public highway froti Dr.
Cannon's Ferry, on Saluda River, to
Nwberry, has not been tut and )peu
ld for public travel ? The road has
been ordered anid Special Commission
ers appointed to lay it out by the
County Commissioners nore than a
year ago, and the rond is not yet
touched. There must be a screw
loose somewhere. In 1876, an article
appeared in the Proyressive Age,
(Newberry,) to this cffect : That an
application would be wade at the next
Legislature to cut and open a public
highway from a point on the Augusta
road beyond Richardsonvi lie, in Edge
5eld County, direct, via Cannon's
Ferry, to Newberry C. 11., S. C., to
be called the Race Path Road But
it being ascertained that the same ob
ject could be accomplished by the
County Commissioners of Edgefield
and Newberry Counties, it was adop
ted in both Counties. But, Messrs.
Editors, I suppose the same reasons
existed in Newberry for not opening
the Race Path Road as exist in Edge
field. On the 15th of April, 1878,
the County Commissioners of Edge
field passed the order to cut and open
a public highway commencing at Pe
terson's branch on the Augusta road,
between Richardsonville and Allen's,
to Cannon's Ferry, to be called the
Race Path toad, and~a Special Com
mission was appointed to superintend
the laying out of said road, and a docu
ment prepared by the Board of County
Commissioners of Edgefield County,
setting forth what they had done in
regard to establishing the said road,
to the Board of County Commission
ers of Newberry County. The Board
of County Commissioners of Newberry
immediately passed the order to cut
and open the road direct from Can
non's Ferry to Newberry. But the
road has not been opened, and, as I
said before, I suppose the same reasons
exist in Newberry as in Edgefield for
not opening the Race Path road.
When the County Commissioners pass.
ed the order to open the road they
thought it would be prudent and wise
to postpone the opening of the road
until the crop was laid by, and by that
time these same County Commission
ers had become candidates for re-elec
tion. A few little whiners, yelpers
and barkers in human shape, appeared
before these candidates with their au
gust presence and proclaimed to them,
if you attempt to open this road we
will vote against you and will ever be
a thorn in your flesh. At these de
clarations the candidates wilted, with
ered and crouched, and that has been
the last heard of the opening of the
Race Path road by the County Com
missioners. So much, Messrs. Edi
tors, for electing Commissioners. Let
the State rise up as one mighty man,
and discard this abominable recon
struction Radical road law from our
statutes, and institute in its place a
law like that which was in force in
ante belium days when we had good
roads and low taxes. Messrs. Editors,
please allow me to call your attention
for a moment to a host of County
Commissioners through the State of
South Carolina who are sucking at the
big teat of the State. Messrs. Edit
ors, there are a plenty of good men
throughout our country, and men of
great merit, and men full of patriot
ism, who would act as Commissioners
without fee or reward if they were ap
pointed by our Legislature. Your|
orrespondent well recollects he acted
as Chairman of a Free School Board
>f Commissioners for many years in
intebellum days, and never received a
ed for his services, and could do so
igain if appointed by the Legislature,
Should the County Commissioners

intil the Courts convene this matter
will be turned over to a higher tribu
al, a tribunal which has never failed
o relieve the weak and the oppressed

I must bring this 'communication
o a close for I have spun it out long
r than I expected when I commenced
t, but the great interest I take in it

erous town of Newberry. It is
