This is the tittle of a new paper
started in Washington. D. C., by Mr.
J. S. Duffle, a native of this State. It is

them were called on for speeches. On
the part of our eandidates Messrs. Lips
aomb, T. C. Brown, Chalmers, Nance,
and others responded. The crowd was
very quiet and orderly ; no drunkenness
and no bad feeling.
A Roil of Honor.
The tidal -wave of sympathy for
famine-stricken Ii-eland, which swept
with irresistible force over the whole
United States, has exhausted itself,
but there are stifl here and there
pitying and generous hearts who re
member that this distress in Ireland,
though materially lessened, has not yet
eased, and who give effect to their
charitable> thoughts by deeds of active
benevolence. The latest instance of
this kind that we are called on.to note
is that of the Town Council of Newberry,
consisting of Intendant J. P. Pool, and
Wardens J. Y. McFall, D. W. T. Kib

occasion they promise to look thei
prettiest and do their best. We bav
not learned the object whether it is t
build a hall or to raise a fund for th
defeate. candidates, but whatever it i
let the hall be full, that their littli
hearts may be glad.
Schoo! Pic Nic.
The pic nic of Miss Janie Smith'
School - on Saturday' last in the grovo
near Mrs. Maycs' residence is reportei
to us as one of the best of the season
There were about five hundred people
little and big, assembled on the ground
and the dinner was just such a one a.
might have been expected from th<
people of that section. The school ex
bibition consisted of speeches and dia
logues which were entertaining an(
creditable. Addre ses were made bl
Geo. Johnstone, Esq., and- Prof. G. B
Cromer. A pleasant- thing to nientior
is that the company was quiet and wel
behaved and that not a jar occurred tc
uiar the general enjoynient.
Talking in Church.
We can think of no.more reprehensi
ble practice than talking in churel
during service, and we ire glad to sai
that as a" general rule our young peopl
show their manners in this respect, and
it is rare that the exception is noticed
We regret to say that on Sunday night it
the Methodist Church there was a breact
of good breeding so marked as to claim
wide attention. In a prominent place
and almost under the pulpit a smal]

terruption during the entire remarks

became more animated. We trust thih
may not occur again or we shall be
The Abbeville Press and Jianner has
this to say of our esteemed townsman,
Dr. Jas. McIntosh, on the delivery of at
address at the Anniversary Meeting 01
the Medical Society of Abbeville:
The audience frequently gave evi
dence of their high appreciation of this
address. The Doctor's fine speech, con
taining so much beauty of thought, and
expressed as it was in the most pleasing
manner, won for him the respect and
admiration of our people. Newberry
is fortunnate in having as a 'citizen,
so polished a gentleman and so eminent
a physician. We hope that the Doctor
may find itegreeable and profitable tc
him to come among us again. We
know that our ladies will always be
glad-to see a man who expresses so high
a respect for them. We sball look for
him at our next annmversary.
The Population of Newberry County.
Two weeks ago we published the new~
ensus of population for this County ex
ept. that from Townships 2 and 5,
which was not then in. This week we
ive the census- in full. Persons will
o well to cut this piece out for future
ownships. 1s70. 1880,
No. 6...................... - ,713..... 8'50
No.37........... ................1 .....,0

No.79....... .......... --.-.1,01..... 230
No. 11...................--. 2,061....2414
Total....... ...............22665 26.550
The population of the Town of New
erry is 2,347; the decrease of 445 from
.870 can be accounted for only on the
round that the census of 1870 was
icorrect and too large-the population
has not decreased that much, if at all.
The Bush River Pic Nic
Friday was an exceedingly pleasant
ocasion. There was not a large crowd
present, but just enough to make it a
nice, sociable gathe;-ng. Most of the
cmpany were young people-andecsn
idates.; the latter turning out in force,
and enjoying the day finely. They are
etermined to have a good time if they
don't get elected. Their electioneering
was very informal, and consisted chiefly
in forming new acquaintances. Now
and then one of them would porner a
voter and give him a "set to"; they call
this "swearing 'em in". The candi
dates are a fine-looking set of men. and
'nae a good impression. The Bush
iver voters would like to vote for them
all if they could.
Another class of candidates present
carried on a vigorous canvass in bug
gies, under shade trees and in other se
cluded retreats; they wanted only one
vote. Some of therm, we hope, were
Everybody was sociable and friendly,
the dinner was excellent, and altogether
the day passed off most pleasantly.'

Rev. J. B. Campbell on Dueling.
Sunday morning ReY. J. B. Camp
bell, of the Methodist Church, announ
ced that he would preach at night on
the subject of dueling. A large con
gregation assembled to hear him. He
took his text from the 13th chapter and
20th verse of Exodus-"Thou shalt not
kill." He said, in substance: Dueling
is becoming a common practice in this
State; five or six have occurred this
year in which citiz.ens of this State were
concerned. Tbis .fat is ga evidence of
a morbid state of public feeling. It is
a lamentable fact that it is considered a
manly way of settling difficulties to in
vite a man out upon the field and give
him an equal chance. The particular
point in the case is the moral quality
of dueling. 1. It is murder, without
qualification or discount-murder in the
irst degree. It is the killing of a hurman<
being-if not in fact still in principle. I
He that desires to slay his fellow inani
is a murderer at heart. It is murder]
in both, 2. It is premeditated; not I
the result of passion or impulse. The
duelist enters into the matter coolly
and deliberately ; practices for it; thinks
and converses about it, and Mithqut re- 1
ard for' the laivs of God or man, pre
pares to take the life of his fellow nian.
It doesn't matter what the "Code" says,t
or a vitiated public opinion says, or the,
laxity of the Courts says-it is rmurder.
3. There is probably po tie case ina i
hundred wh'ere the offence would jus
tify killing even in sudden heat 'and
passion. 4. Probably no case that could
not be settled otherwise. If offence be
iven and the offender refuses to make
mends friends may intercede; if he
still refuses he is beneath your notice.
5. It is a risk of one's own life-a de
termnation to kill or be killsd. It .is
sad enough to see one killed in excit.e
ment, but to see him deliberately go
out to be shot at shows the turpitude of
the affair; it heightens the offence. It
is no evidence of chivalry or courage
Ithus to expose one's gwp life. 6. Ha
tred enters into the duel, ap4 is at the
bottom of it; and "he tiiat hateth his
brother is a murderer." 7. Revenge en-.1
ters into it. The Lord has said "yen
geance is mine." A man becomes his
ownr arbitrator, and it is so easy for him
to go beyond what is propet. 4. It is
murder under the laws.of the Country.
A few realsons why all shonld be oppo-1
sed to duelling. 1st. It tends to lower
the type of our civilization:- to inculcate
into the minds of the rising generation
that to be tru.e and brav.e men they1
must be skillful with the pistol. 2nd. ]
A duel never settles a difficulty. How
can a dead nian give or receive satis
faction for a wrong done or a wrong
suffered 9 Gqd forbid that any m~an
should be satisfied with such a result.1
rd. It plunges families into the bitter
est grief. If you succeed. you have
made a widow and orphans, or done an
irreparable injury to thyse whowae in
inncent and Who U4pe never harmed
you. It is no small matter to drape a
whole ~household in mourning and to
remove from a family its head and sup
port. 4th. It sends a soul unprepared
into the ptlber Wyprld. Can a man who
dies in a duel go to Heavene PI can't
settle that question. 'But how canl a
man be prepared for Heaven who dies
with revenge, hatred and a desire to
kill in his heart? 5th. It is imperiling

politics he was a secessionist, advocating
separate State action as the only practicable
means of producing co-operation for the for
ation of a Souther'i Confederacy, and when
war enszed, he was amnong the first to vol.

a Presidential elector for the 3d Congres

D&An sS: I want to say to.you
hat you have my hearty endorse

in referenee to the ash-Slannop

men of the past who resorted to the
Saello to settle- their personal dif

and chivalric courtesy distinguish

style" appears to be fashionable.
The issue is very sharply made
between those who trem~ple law de
antly under foUt and those who
execute it, and I hope that courage
enough may be found to execute it.
