The election that is to take place
the 13th instant is exciting more
than usual interest. Two public
meetings have been held, each meet
ing has put a ticket in the field.
The misunderstanding concerning
the time for the meeting arose in
this way:-The Intendant and the
Clerk gave notice December 24th of
a meeting for the 31st, to nominate
a Council for the ensuing year; this
notice, we understand, was given in
accordance with a resolution of the
entire Council. In the issue of the
31st was another notice by the In
tendant and the Clerk, postponing
the meeting to the 3d instant; this
postponement was made by the In
tendant without consultation with
any of the Council except one mem
ber. In justice to the Intendant,
we take this occasion to say that we
do not believe he had any other ob
ject in view than to allow certain
citizens who expected to be absent
Wednesday an opportunity to par
ticipate in the nominations.
There is an attempt on the part
of some to drag into the campaign
issues that do not belong to it. We
hear of the "dry ticket" and of the
"iet ticket". There is no such is
sue involved. As we understand it
the position taken by the ticket
improperly called the "dry ticket"
is this:i 1st, To secure better order
on the streets; 2nd, to enforce the
Jaws against gambling and.other
offenses within the corporate limits;
and, 3d, to place it within the power
of the citizens to declare at each
election whether barrooms shall be
licensed or not-in other words,
that if licenses be granted these
licenses shall expire with the expi
ration of the term of office of the
Council granting them, so as to
leave their successors the power to
grant or not to grant, as they see
fit, during their term of office. This
is fair, and nobody can reasonably
object to it. It is only to prevent
r one Council from forestalling the
action of its successor. This was
the case up to 1877. Prior to that
time the municipal elections were
held the first Tuesday*in Novem
ber, and licenses were granted in
November and December. The
Legislature, March 2, 1876, so
amended the town charter as to
have the election on the second
Tuesday in January ; so that the
Council that was elected in Novem
ber, 1875, continued in office till
January, 1877. The licenses ex
-piring in November and December,
1876, were renewed by that Coun
c' il for one year-the shortest tims
allowed-and the same thing has
happened every year till th~e present.
So that the charge made by some
that one Council has "forestalled'
the action of its successor is un
founded, and is the result of igno
rance of the above facts, which
clearly explain the whole matter.
When the question of "wet or dry'
comes properly before the people
as an issue we propose to discuss
it, but we can see no occasion to
do so now. All that the citizens of
Newberry are called upon to con
sider in this election is to secure
the best Council possible-a Coun
eil that will be firm in preserving
peace and good order on the streets,
aggressive in punishing and pre
venting all violations of law within
the limits of the town, and attentive
to their duties of keeping the
streets and sidewalks in proper
condition-in short, active, enter
prising business men who will know
their duty and will have the cour
age to perform it. There is no poli
tics involved in the election ; and
all that can be expected of any citi
zen is that he exercise his own judg
ment and support the candidates
that he thinks will best secure the
interests of the community.

Mistake in the Appropriation
The State* tax was fixed by the
House that introduced the appro
priation bill at 4} mills ; the Senate
amended it by making it 42, but
afterwards receded from its amend
ment. The engrossing clerk, how
ever, made a mistake and put 41 in
the bill when engrossing it for rati
fication ; so that the State tax
stands at 4- mills. This extra one
fourth of a mill will raise about
$25,000, which will remain in the
Treasury to the credit of next year.
Gen. A. C. Garlington has become

The General is a graceful and for

him in the editorial harness again.

The following are the reports of the

which were called for by the Senate
at its recent session, and by that body

ket sick-two white men and one black
and man. They had some straw to lie up
on and were all chained. They were
v of all covered with vermin and fleas-so
le). much so that I was forced to leave the
ad. the room. I don't see how it was

I reached the stockade on Monday u
afternoon, the 25th, and immediately f,
proceeded to the said inspection. I
found in the log pen, which is called
the hospital, three convicts lying on a
shelf made of poles and clapboard and
covered about two inches with straw
Tvo of said convicts were colored and
one white. One of the convicts, Jno.
Lord, was in the last stages of exhaus

shackles and a pair of pants-the rest
of his body being covered with flies.
The other colored convict had general
dropsy. * * McGar- G

leave the shelf, and the straw was so
full of vermin that I could not make

From the stockade I went to where
the convicts were at work, and in
spected each convict separ.tely. With
the exception of nine, I found them
all, more or less, infected with scurvy,
and with an eruption which was evi
dently caused by the vermin on their
persons. There were two who were so
swollen with dropsy of the extremities
that I remarked that they should have
been in the hospital, and was told that
they were there on light work, just to
do wvhat they pleased. None of them
possessed a change of clothing, and
their persons, though evidently having
been washed the preceeding Sunday,
were offensiue on account of the stench
from the filthy clothing.
In a conversation with Dr. T. .
McKie, an excellent gentleman as
well as physician, I found that he had
refused to attend further on these con
viets, as we could be of no possible
service under such a condit.ion of
things as prevailed ; and Mr. Twiggs,
the associate engineer of the railroad,
with the Georgia branch, informs me
that he has remonstrated time and

FIf the world was all before the rad

turbing the ordinary and peaceful
course of events, I doubt if they could
have selected a spot more calculated
to give themx temporary encourage

than the State of Maine. I1 say nothing
of the manifestly selfish :motivcs which

Iam certain that the feeling which

a love of disorder or aan indication of a
