A TART LETTER FROM TIOL.
WA-.11m.CTON. "MaV 10th. 1S84.
Messrs. ENitors: I never see the
ERIIALD, but the Press 4- Baner of
this week contains an extract from
the Newberrv Henm!A>D, Which pro
vokes me to ask for a small space
in your next issue.
i. You say, "Col. Aiken is op
posed to all public education and
ofree schools." This remark is so
utterly at variance with my views
that I must say, the thought is a con
ception of your own.
2. You say, --he delights in talk
in(g about the good oid schools in
which such men as Calhoun, Web
ster & Aiken were educated."
Another conception of your too im
aginative brain. I know little or
nothing of the schools in which
either Mr. Calhoun. or Mr. Web
ster was taught, and do not renmem
her ever saving a word in public. or
even in private as often as a couple
of times concerning the school at
which I was taugit; but am free to
confess that I believe thx school
richly deserves my holding it in
3. You say. "IIe is in favor of
appropriating public money to es
tablish a national seed house." At
every Session) since I have been a
imiember of Congress I have unsu
cessfully attempted to change or
abolish the present indiscriminate
gratuitous distribution of seeds.
4. The tenor of your article al
most Persuades me to characterize
it as it deserves, but respect for
myself restrains me: so I will con
tent myself with thaving shown
*your misrepresentations. reserving
judgnent upon the motive that
prompted you in placing me so
falsely before the public.
We cheerfully give space for the
foregoing letter, thes paragraphs of
which we have taken thle liberty of
numnbering. for convenience of ref
1. Col. Aiken salys that our state
ment, that lie is -opposed to all1 pub
lie educiationl and all free schools'
is utterly at variance with his views.
We are gladl to know this. We
had never heard him say that lhe
was opp;osed to puibliceducatin,
and we had never re':i a speech inI
which lie said so); hut certain truths
gatin currency and are known even
among those who cannot produce
them in printed form,. when called
for. We Lad r.:ad reports of his
speeches with some scrutiny, be
cause we regarded him as anI o;ppo
nent of free publie education. but
we (do not reime:r.er having heard
at :my timle that be was in favor oi
any pulic school in this State. ex

Or'r remaarks which called forth Co!.
A iken's letter crew written just afier
we read a published interviewv with
himi Onl the subject of govermuient
ai to the conmmn school s. ini that
intQrview he expressed the belief
th.at the 'ommontP schools sh.ould no,
butl said that' mr i*; ..u' &,ir
ulit - t hi sl-'i'. I tha*tl doe t
lie edution, the English innguage
meianlS nothing. T hitervAie may
not be errect. but it wa i?dJy
published. and we do) not know that
(Coh. Aikeni has cont radicted it.
2. We sai.1. Col. Aiken is one of
t htatesmecn -w;hoj deligh tin talking
:aout the i.god old schools in which
Ti s i.s of little consequence. but
we respect ul ly suinit that our crit
ic besth queston. He says he
knows little about the schools at
which' Caloun and Webrster were
tau t. n doe s not remember
hiaving said aniything ill publie about
th' s.chool ait which he was taughLt.
We sa'Iid othing abou t the Schools
at whc C..al('houmi. WVebs,ter and Ai
ken were taughit, but the schools -'at$
which .sneh nue,n .s" theyP were
taugt. manig siplyand plainly
schools thtexisted biefore the war.
And, if C'oh. Aikenm has not, in somec
of his sp)eechecs on the conmmou
school system of th:s State. contrast
ed that system with~ the common
schools of other days. mfaking~ the
contrast favorable to the latter, we
are more mistaken than we are at
presenlt willing~ to admit.
,. We said. speaking of C'ol.
Aiken's op)position to the educa
tional bill, -l may seemii strange
to some people that our Congress
man is in favor of appropriating
plic money to establish a national
seed h:ouse for the free distribution
of seeds to the p)eople, while lie is
opposed- to the ap)propriatijon of
public money for the free distribu
tion of education among the peo.
We knew that G1. Aiken ha
been active ly distribing-free seeds
and we inferred that he was in faz
vor of the seed house. About tha
it may be that.we weremistakel
But he does not deny the point.which
is, that he is in favor of the free dis
tribution of seeds; what he does de
nv is that he is in favor of the "it
discriuiude gratuitous distribution
of seeds." We (lid not mean to
oppose the free distribution of seeds.
We are in favor of free seeds and
free schools; and we dI not see
how Col. Aiken could consistently
favor the one and oppose the other,
as we thought be did.
4. We fail to understand, in our
simp'e way, why one's self respect
should restrain him from character
izing a false article "as it deserves."
We assure Col. Aiken, however, that
lie can freely characterize our ar
tiles as they -deserve." if not as
he sees fit t4 think they deserve,
without comproinising his selfres
pect, or departing from, that dignity
of speech so becoming to his high
We hope that we are not expected
to feel grateful to Col. Aiken for
-reserving his judginent upon our
motive." If he means to intimate
that an ulterior, or sinister, motive
lurked behind our article, or that it
was prompted by aught else than a
desire to see free schools within the
reach of all, he is as widely mista
ken in his "judgment upon our mo
tive" as lie says we are in our
opiaions, and that is putting it
strongly. We desire to place no
man "falsely before the public,"
and, if the time ever conies when
we are opposed to Col. Aiken, in
stead of his viewe on public ques
tions, we will criticise him openly
and frankly, or not speak of him at
The Press & Banwr. which Col.
Aiken r?ads, and perhaps admires,
sharply criticis.(d Senator H1lamp
ton's views on public education; we
as freely criticised the views of
Senator Phiter and Congressman
Aiken. who, from our point of view,
are wrong. Senator IIampton an
swers the Press (Io7 Baltilvr in a
dignified. statesmanlike letter; Con.
gressman Aiken calls our motive
into question, and we can ex
plain the tone oi his letter only by
supposing that le regards us as
fools and thinks that a fool should
be answered "according to his folly.'
On that point, how'ever. there may
be two or three opinions.
We have always admired Col
Aiken's fearless, outspoken i manner
on all subjects, and we (10 not dis
like him; but we do not think
that what lie calis our "inisrepre
sentatious" have been sufficiently
shown to prove that they were
baseless. Col. Aiken is cruelly.
and therefore needlessly, severe,
when lie charges us with being
highly imaginative ; we beg to
assure him that we are not-we
cannot even imagine why it is that
we never heard him spoken of as an
advocate of free public schools.
A committee of' our representa
tive men went to Saluda River last
Monday for the pupose of esti
mating the Probable cotof a big
connecting Newberry and Edgefield
Counties and decidingr upon a suita
ble place for the proposed ibridge.
After survey ing the crossingzs at1
Kinard's and B~oukn it's the comn
maittee decided that the latter is the
most suitable plce and es:imnated
that a bridgae cou~ ld be built there
at a cost of -7.000
The people inhabiting that strip)
of Edgetield which lies just across
the river are entitled to better
court-house facilities. They are
too far from their market and t'aeir
courts, and but for Salada Riv'er
their trade would fidw naturaliv to
Ncwherry. The propose-d bridlge
would greatly benefit them. and
would. it seem's to us, confer in

What more interesting topic can
be written about at this time than
the growing, fast maturing grain
crop. Butlittle was made last year,
either of small grain, corn, peas
or potatoes; the cotton crop even,
on which is centered the farmers
chief thought, was a comparative
failure. The little money realized
for this short crop to~a great extent
is exhetPd. gone glimierin)g. to
use a homz.,y expression. In many
cases it has been used to keep want
from the door, to feed hungry
-months, some of it,4and we are in
clined to think but little, has been
used to pay old old debts, and 'tis
a pity that the mass is not more
impressed with the living principle,
of the axiom that honesty is the
best poliev,' or that an 'honest man
is the noblest work of God.' How
much better would the world be if
this were the case. But we are
straying. Well, last vear's income is
gone, and hope now runs high in
the promise of a large, abundant
vield of oats, wheat. harley, &c.
Never did these crops look more
Promising. We are glad of this,
and our heart rejoices. The far
mer sees some of his difficulties
melting away in the glorious harvest
soon to b- realized.
We rode out a short distance one
afternoon last week, and we saw. and
a blind man almost might have seen
it also. that is if not quite blind.
What did we see, well this, 'sweet
fiel:s arrayed in living grcen.' on
every hanl. stretching far and near,
manifieent fields of tall growing,
beautiful oats and whe:t--utterly
utter t!.P prospect. One of the
finest view. in this short ride was
preentel on the home farm of
.fas. bulreatih. Esq The vast
grove in front of his io(lest
dwein wglittered in the
soft Slunshineo wvith oats. oats, oats,
from waist to shoulder high. Our
mind went back to the time of the
unpleasantness' between North and
So-ith, and an experience in the
Virginia valleys, for there in that
time which -tried men's souls,' were
such fielIs seen. Tie Hon. J. C.
Wilson also has a large extent of
splendid wheat. These two are suf
ficient to mention, but these gentle
men are not the only fortunate ones
After looking at the first mentioned
display of what nattre wil! do for
the industrious. we wondered if we
ever should sea a pretty ornate cot- t
tage oecnpying the site now taken
tip be the 'ndest dwelling.' What
say you. friend Jeemes?
Speaking of honesty a little while t
back, we are constrained to 'touch
her up again.' Just suppose for an
instant that every- m:m became
impressed with the feeling of lion-.
esty,. and that feeling made him feel I
a spirit of unrest until lie became
honest. The honesty we allude to t
here is the p)aying of one's just I
debts, and to owe no mian anything.
What a relief would be experi- I
enced, what happiness would pre-C

at once out t the slough of despair.
