PICKENS C. 11., S. C.:
Thursday. Nov. 3O, 1870.
COLUMBIA, S. C., Nov. 26, 1876.
Dear Sentinel : On arriving in Co
lumbia, I expected to find much ex
citement over the political situation
but to the contrary, I find that every
thing his quieted down, though there
seomq to be a solid determination
amongst the Democrats not to be
cheated out of i ho fruits of our victory
through the action of a corrupt Can
vassing Board; and in this it seems
that we have the support of the Su
preme Court of the State. It is duo
to the firmness and impartiality of
this tribunal, no doubt that peace and
quiet reigns throughout the State, for
had they permitted the Board of State
Canvassers to carry out their infa
mous scheme of defrauding the Demo.
crats out of their honestly won vies
tory. The insolence of the iRadicaE
would havo been unbearable, and ii
conflict would have been the result. But
they have been balked in their shame,
ful and open attempt at fraud, an<
now, on this p)leasanit Sabbath morn
iing, when they should have been a
the altar of the church imploring Go<
to soften their' hearts and forgive then
their manifold sins, they are reposing
in the common jail of .Rieblatnd county
instead of being permit.ted to rejoic<
over their inzfamay and luxuriate or
money stolen from the people. ]
beard a distinguished jurist say thiu
morning that a majority of their
should have been carried about a hal
mile further and p)laced in charge o
Parmele, where they might have beer
in a small me~asuro,ma(de to comipensat<
the State for what they have stole:
from it. The entire Board was com
mitted yesterday evening for con
tempt of' the Court, and fined $1,5o(
each. They will remain in jail unti
the further order of the Court. Ther<
has been a rule served on Corbin to
show cause for the same off%nso, whichi
is to be heard on to morrow, at 4
o'clock p. im. W hat the result will be,
ofc<ure,can not be anticipated, but
it is to be hoped that he will be made
to share the fate of his ill advised
clients. Tfhe Court has ordered ite
Clerk to issue coi tificates of election to
the Democratic members of Edgefield
and Laurenis, but whether Jones, th<
Clerk of the last House will placc
their names on the role and call thorn
in the organization of the House ro,
mains to be seen. If' he does not, h(
will be placed in the same posit.ion at
that of the Canvassing Board, anc
will doubtless be dealt with in th<
sameo man ner. But the thijeves dijt
hard, and they had rather go to jai
ini the hopes of a speedy liberatial
than to give up the "five years of goo<
stealing in South Carolina." Tiher
will evidently be exciting times o
next Tuesday, when the Legislatur
goes into an organization. WVhat I.l
final terminatian will be can not t~
anticipated, but of one thing you
readers may rest assured, arid that i
that the Democ rats stand firm an
determined, and have the best advit
era in the State, Get). Gordon is sti
bore, and will doubt less remain unt
the difficulties are settled. Everyi hin
at this time seemns to be working fI
vorably. 41 will keep you posted o

To Our Patrons.
Those who are in arrears to us must
@ome forward and settle, or wo will
be compelled to erase their names
from our books. Many ot our sub
scribers, who are good for the amount
of their subscription have failed to
pay us for Leveral years. We can
not afford to furnish them the paper
any longer, unless they pay up, and,
however, much we may regret to
strike their names from our list, duty
alike to ourselves and those subscrib
era who pay us, compolls us to do so.
We have been paying postage, and
furnishing many our paper for several
years without a cent in return. This
we are determined to do no longer,
and unless they settle before the first
day of January next, their paper will
certainly be stopped.
We have also determ'ned not to
enter any more ntaes on our books
without the cash in advance. 'I his
will be the nnalterable rule of the
office in the futuro.
Our Repeser.iatives, 1). F. Bradley,
and E. 11. Bates, and Senator, Col.
I. E. Bowen, left on Saturday last for
Columbia, to bo ready for the meeting
of tbe Logislaturo on Tuesday 28th
instant. It is to bo loped that this
body will earnestly tuko into consid
et taion the mtraitened condition of the
State, and by a short session of four
or five weeks, save to the State the
unnecessarily onerous legislativo ex,
penses of former sessions. Right here
is the placo to commence reform, and
nlow the is the Lime. 'I lhe Democrats,
if they be in the majority, will be ex,
pected to make good thei promises of
reform and retrenchment.
Up to the time of going to press,
there is no Legislative news. This
body was to havo assembled on the
28th instart. We are anxiously await
ing to learn the finale of tho election
trouble at the Capital. The Rads hang
on like 'eches, and seem un willing to
be convinced that they have been
beaten, and must release their iron
grip. The result, of' the 7th of No

terror made him comply, but if he ro
