The New Year.
Iith this issue begins the new year.
Christmas has come and gone, and a
dull Christmas it was. Never, since
the dark, crimson tide of wir rolled
over our country, making desolate so
many homes and leaving his gory
footprints at so-many households in
tho land, has a now year opened with
brighter and more pleasing prospects
for the future. After we had gone
through those four years of firo and
of blood, a ccmplete revolution was
made in our government and we were
subjected to a tyranny and an oppres
slon more galling and bittor to a
proud and chivalrous people than that
of war itself. The carpet.baggor came
down in swarms from their Northern
homes, obtained possession of the
reins of government; slandered, cal
lumniated and robbed our people;
kindled a feeling of distrust and ha
tred between races that should live
together in peace, and by continually
adding fuel to the flame kept up the
bitter feeling between the two races,
and thus continued themselves in
power, robbing and plundering the
people, and gloating over our helpless
and miserable condition. Corruption
stalked in high places, ignorance oc,
cupied the seats in our capitol, that
had once been filled by our Calhouns,
our Duflies and our Pinkneys, and leg
islated for the people, while roughs
and thieves swarmed in count
loss numbers around the Stato Creas
ury and appropriated the peoples
money and the peoples goods to their
own use with impunity. Nay, all this
was considered, by the crew then in
power, as commendable and praise
worthy acts, and the greatest rogue
received the greatest honors. These
things have now paesed away, and
behold all things are new. It is like
the dispelling of a dark and angry
cloud from before the glor'ous and
beaming rays of a noon day sun. In
the place of corruption, we now have
incorrupttble integrity, instead of ex.
travaganco and a profligate waste of
the peoples money, we have economy
and a judicious disbursement of the
publio funds, for ignorance we have
intelligence, for vice and debauchery In
public officials we have honesty, in
tegrity, prudence and temperance and
we now have the means within our
power of again soon becoming a hap,
py and prosperous peop)le. The lien
law, that spawn of Radicalism and
breeder of extravagance and dissipation
Is a thing of the past, while in its
place upon our statute books is sup
plied by the re-enactmen,t ofthe usury
law. We have need to rejoice at the
great change in affairs; but let us use
our vietory' and the means which God
has given us of bccoming prosperous
and happy, with prudence, mnodera
tion and wisdom. No people bore de
feat with greater fortitude, or sub,~
mitted to tyranny and oppression du-.
ring the dark, dark days in the imme
diate past with more heroism. Then
let us show thu world that wo can
turn a victory as well as a defeat to
advantage, and that we can use the
means and power we now have to
the prosperity and happiness of the
wvhole people. We congratulater our
readers on the bright future, and trust
that they may enter upon their duties
for the new year with a redoubled
energy to contribute their part to
wards placing our State and our peo,
pie in the samno prosperous and happy
condition they enjoyed before the late
Murder Near Ninety,Six.
Dur-ing the Christ,mas holidays, an
old bachelor, by the name of Frank-,
lin and his oidmaiden sister, living near
1Kinoty-Six, Abboville County, were
horribly and brutally murdered by a
gang of savage and fiendish negroes.
A clue to Lbhe guilty parties was first,
obtiainod by the persimmon club with
*hich the dued was Oommitted. The
plae where the club was cut was
found, and the tracks leading from it
were mvo~eaured, which corresponded
with the foot of 11h0 supeotod party.
Four negroes have boon arrested for
the crime and lodged -In the Abboville
jail. Another whateadme hanging is
evidently ln'atono for t,hat County.
That Five Dollars a Day.
Some of our citizens werg, justly,
indignant *ben they vead in the
Clarletton Journal of Commerce and
in the Greenville Daily News, that
the members of the Legislature had
voted themselve $5.00 a day dnring
the recess, and many were the male
dictions heaped on the devoted heads
of all the membeas of the Legislature,
not distinguishing in their impetuous
indignotion (even had the'news been
true) the member who voted for it
and the one who voted against it.
But we are glad that we can correct
the mistake made by these journals
and assure our readers that the mem
bers of the Legislature do not get 65
a day during the recesm. They get
nothing. Such a step would be obsti
nately fought by Tum SENTINEL, and
by its Editor in propria per8ona. The
Editor ia not present at this writing,
but we speak advisedly when we say
this, for we have heard him denounce
such a course in unmeasured terms.
It would be equal to the back salary
grab of Congress a few years ago, and
would be met by the same indignant
condemnation by the people.

of the taxpayers of Pickens County,

JOHN 0. DAvIs,
Auditor Pickens County.
DEAR SENTINEL; It has been some
time since 1 had the pleasure of chats
ting with the old home journal.
My friend "Bones" had boon silent
some time; but I saw by your last is%
sue that there had been a resurrec
tion of dry "Bones." Therefore I
concluded to come to life. I thought
p)erhaIps he had gone to the "yard;"
but I am glad to know that he hasn't
gone to increase "Bone fertali.. re."
Wecll, Christmas has come to Cen,
tral, and brought with it "tangle-foot,"
turkey shooting, chicken fighting,
Our great evening of the charades
and hot supper has come and gone.
1t proved very profitable to the
church. Our charades, which came
off first, was almost a failure, owing
to the serious illness of one of our
princip)al actors. A fter' the charades,
we repaired to the Central Hotel,
where the supper was laid. Under
the skilful management of "Cousin
John," everything passed off well.
The committee of arrangement had
an abundance of everything good
more than a'll e'd' "t.. But the
event of the evening was the. halloting
tor the hady that should ret ive a
largo steep)lo cake. It was Central
and Pondleton-Miss Essie 0., of
Central, and Miss Julia P., of Pendle..
ton, were the rivals. The prIico per~
veo was 10 cents. The voting began
wvith small sums of two, three and
five, but as the exocitement increased
the numbor grew larger, until they
reached as high as fifty and a hundred
at a single shot. It was a hard fought
battle; but Central came out victori,
ous. T[he cake brought the "small"
sum of something over $90. As soon
as the contest was decied, Miss Essie]
returned the cake to the church, and
it was auctioned off by "Cousin John"
It was purchased by D . C., and re.
turr.ed to Miss E. And so ended our
s. o upper.
We haven't anything about Central
wonderful to tell. We have had sev
oral marriages, but they are common
at this season of the year.
I hope Imay be ableto tak ofner
in the new year, with Tuu SaxrN?Ix,.
Conkling, the siver-tongued orator
from New York and the leader of the
anti-hayes party in the Senate, and
Senator Gordon had a very sharp lit.
tie fight in the Senate last week. They
called each other hard names and
would have fought it out according to
the code of honer had not the venera.
ble Hamlin from Maine and a oouplo
of other friends interfered. Gordon
ought to have shot the sneak. We
are getting strong enough to talk as
we please these days and another cow
hiding after the Sumner-Brooks pate.
tern would do the whole country
good. When old Mart. Gary goes on
to take Patterson's place we may look
for some consternation among the
Radical senators. Gary will make
them move around lively.-Abbeville
Medium, 19th ultimo.
From the tone of the above, the
Medium seems to be for war. But
we are not surprised at the martial
spirit of the medium, since her senior
editor is a Brigadier General and her
junior an Adjutant General.

WIll our Bloody Shirt friends at

tfleir shirts, and, "like the Arabs.,of
the desert, silently steal away" into a
state of quioscence?

earth. But Hlostetter's Stomach Bitters is a
living and thriving remedy. It goes on cur

creases its popularity. It has been repeat
edly imitated, but without success, 6'oun

entrenches itself in the confidence of the peo
