Tho report whicli circulated In this

to a committoo of citizens of this
County, calling upon the Gi eenvillo
and the Anderson dolegations to know
of thoM the stanJing of the Pickons
delogation in tho Lcgislaturo, &c., has
been sufciently exploded, and would
not again bo referred to by us, wore
it not that certain men in this County
have said that the whole afiair was
gotten up by oursolf as an election -
coring scheme, &c. To pin this false
hood, we publish below the cards of
Major Stewart and Mr. James Lewis,
and leave the Democratic voters of
this County to draw their own con)
ciusions. Mr. W illiams, has acknowls
edged to us that the report is correct,
-with the exception of the word "comn,
As to that point we leave the cards
of Ma~j. Stewart and Mr. Lewis to sete
tie. In juetice to Maj. Stewart we
wvill state that. ho did not volunteer tc
us the information about said report
but we, hearing it through ar.othecr
source, and hearing that the state,
ment was made in his presence, ap,
proached him to know if ho had board
the conversation, arnd ho, as an honest
and truthful gentleman, gave us the
information. Maij. Stewart is known
in this County as one of its best and
most substantial citizens, while Mr.
.liowis is known to be the personifica
tion of truth and honor. As above
stated we leave it to their statements
as to whether we or any of our friends
originated this report:
Hion. D. F. Bradley, Editor Pickens
DEA R SIn: In reference to some rew
ports in circulation, that a committee
from Pickons had wvaited upon the
Greenville arnd Anderson dolegations
to ascertain t.he propriety of return
ing yourself and Hion. .R. E. Bowen to
the next General Assembly, at tife re
quest of Mt. Andrew Williams that I
should give my recollction of his
statement in this matter, 1 have con
sented to do so:
Mr. Williams and Mr. James Lewis
were considering the chances of some
of the candidates, in my p~rosencoc,
when Mr. Williams remarked that
IMaj. Moon an d oth ers (as I understood
him; though 1 don't think ho poreon
ated any other man; but from the
course of his conversatipn he left the
impression upon my mind that others
were in company with MJaj. Moon) had
interviewed the above delegations
with the understanding that' it wvould
niot do to send Bradley and Bowen,
Iput that it would do to send Mr.
.Bates to the next General Assembly.
Mrr. W illiams has, sinlc3 the abovo con -
versation, approached mo very kindly
and sastains mnc in im recollection,
exoept the Wvord "committee," and has
confirmed my opinmon of him, formed
long smnce, as being a gentleman in
the full sense of the term.
Somib weeks later, Maj. Bradley aps
proached me at Pickens C. H. to know
? I had heard of theso reports and
.what I knew about thnm. .1 was satt
isfied from his appearance in conver
sation that he was in posession of said
yeportaded was anxious to locate the
auth~or. 1 was forced at this pmint to
~tm the golden rule, "do as y ou wish
to dono by,in telling,wheon called
0,hetruth as I undoetood it. I
h- i'that I have severed no friendship
no injured any one-in sim ply telling
I have not as. yet tak~en any active
part in this election, and at t ho same
time feel deeply interested in the wel.
Sfareof our County, 1 hopo no one
w(iill aconse me of oansing any undue

Li sIonI 4et rde add that those who have

Hon. 0. F. Bradley.
DEAR SIR-I understand that the t
reports now currently circulated in this t
County, in reference to a committea
interviewing Anderson and Greenville
delegations, to find cut as to your fit
ness to represent Pickens in the next t
General Assembly, are alleged by r
some to have been started by your- t
solf. With equal justice to you and
myself, will say, that I understood Mr. e
Andrew Williams to say that "Maj.
Moon went, and they had got back," f
sigrnifying that some person or per. j
sons wero in company with Major
Moon , and that it would not do to
send Bowen and Rradloy back. This
is my recollection as to what Mr. 8
Williams said. Will add in conclu (
sion, that I regard Mr. Williams as
a gentleman, and will not go back on
anything ho says. I drop you this
noto, that all mistakes or misundor
standiigs may bo corrected, so far as t
the truth of this matter is in my pos- ,

Primary Election in Abbeville.
On Saturday, the 17th inst., a pi
mary election was held in Abbeville,
and the following is the result for
meritbers of the Legislature: Gen.

Gon. Robt. Ri. Ilomphill, 1,779; J. 1U.

Dr1. J. F. Ensor, Superintendent ofi
the Ld'natic Asylum, under Chamber,
lain's administration,' has beon .nom. E
inated for Congress from this District, I
in oppositionv to Colonel Aikon. Of
course he has no chance of election, E
hut if he is only a candidate, on1 the I
Republican ticket, and spends all his I
means in tnying to advance the cause I
of the party, it will give him a claim t
on IRayes' administration for an ap, h
poinitment. This is about the secrot (
of' his candidacy, and if we thought <
there was the remotest chance of hisi
election, we wvould give our roa-Icrs a I
short sketch of him, but as there is <
no chance for his election wo will (
say nothing abont him. Let Aikon's I
majority he 10,000, dt least.
Robt. Smalls, colored, a convicted t
thidfand bribe taker, has been renom- <
inated for Congress by the Republis -I
cans from the 6th District. If there (
is a par'ticle of honor or .decency
amor'gst the Republican voters, they
will vote for his opponent, Col. Till% 1
man, the Democratic nominee. Smalls 1
should be boat by at least ten thou% 4
sand majority; but if he is elected the 1
Republicans of that District will en- <
dorse a thief and make themselves as (
contemptable as he is.
GREENVILLE, S. C., August 2.
The consideration of the caso of the I
United States against A. J. Hlinokle ]
and Thos. J. Hlinokle, Indicted for V
conspiracy, was resumed. District
Attorney Northrope closed his argu,
ment on bohalfof the Unitedi States. tE
After chargo of the Judge the jury
rendered a verdict of guilty.
~. .. :1...
In common newspaper parlance this
xpression includes all who hav vio
itted the internal revenue laws in the
ast five years, whether by the manu
acture or sale of liquor. It is under
14 broad signification that we ate
o understand the sentiments that1
iundreds of illicit distillore have de,
ivered themselves up and obtained
ho clemency of the Government for
oast offences. In the same sense are
he statements that hundreds of oth,
rs have their heads turned to Green
illo and are flocking to the United
Itates Court room to obtain amnesty.
.n this way, too, must we understand
he colored state'ment that Kirkland
vould ask Governor Hampton to
peak to those lawsbreakers at Pace's
lap, promising an audience of five
mindred illicit distillers. The ligbtest
>f these statements are exagera.tions
rauds concocted by fancy to justify
ho severe and illegal conduct of re,
renue officials. They look to the
ustification of such acts as the killing
>t Ladd and the abuse and oppression
>f unoffonding citizens on the ground
>f a state of general lawlessness i.n
he mountains. To accept such ex
iggerations as true would- lead to the
,onclusion that all of upper Oconee,
?ickens, Greenville and Spartanburg
vas a cesspool of rebellion and law,
essnoss against the Government. It
Nould bo an admission that disregard
md violation of law was tlo rule in
,hoso sections and obedienco to lawN
.ho excoption. It would lead to thc
,onclusion that every crock and slprin;
>ranch in the -mountains was embol
ished by still and boer stands closely
uarded by a troup of lawloss moun.
ainers. We do not wonder that thc
'Registor" is surprised at such a statc
>f things and can see in it groat jus
ification for the severe Measures ol
ho Government. Our peoplO will bc
more surprised to learn that our
mountains have suddenly brought
tortha an army cf illicit distillers.
It is unfortunately true that thcrc
bave been in the upper counties a few
persons engaged in illicit distilling,
but with us the number has been truly
cow. We have been at Walhalla near
y ten years, and in,.thiat period we
Ioubt if thirty persons hsavo been
iurought beroro the IUnited 'StIaes
Domnmissioner for illicit distilliniig. In
he last fivo years w'e have beenm next
loot' to the dfilco of the CJommissioner'.
nd have roprosented persons in his
ournt and we doubt if his record will
howv war'rants in five yentrs tot' twen
y' persns charged with illicit distil
ing, wvhijo we wvill go far'thier and ex,
press ana honest doubt whethmer he hams
ont up to court eight cases for' this
,ffenco in four' years. We wvill go
ather and express our opinion that
hero aro not twventy stills in this
ounty all told, idlo and running, law,
ul and unlawful. Our great trouble
vith the liquor business has becn the
vagon traffic introduced from adjoin
ng States, which led to the sub pod
Iling of a few gallons by citizens of
his county. Even these cases were
nfrcquent and often consisted of the
ale of' a quart or a few gallons by
ome one for a little profit. The
>rosccution of these petty violations
vas open for five years from the act,
o0 that petty violations through a lon g
oriod implicated a good number of
>eople who had really abandoned the
musiness. When amnesty was offered
o all who would come ina and plead
~uilty, every one in any way con
erned for five years felt it safest to
onfess and get a f'ull cloaranco. This
a what makes the number 'appear
rgo. We know very little of other
ounties, but presume the same state
f things, perhaps on a larger scale,
as existed there. We have heard
ome of our best citizens express the
pinion tihat thore are not six stills in
he county. Distilling here is rare in
leed in violation of law, so is any thing
ike regular retail dealing ;n violation

This morning, the whole of Contral

the road to Pendloton, to attend the
great Democratic moting, to cole

J. J. Lewis.
When we. reached Pendleton wo
found a largo crowd, already assem

The Flying Artillery and Anderson
Infantry fi st gave up a specimoti of

Anderson street. They then nmarched
through the printipal stroots to a
beautiful grove beyond tho railroad.
where there was a nico stand erected,
which showed the beauty of woman's
work. After the crowd had somewhat
settled, the speaking began. Colonel
Hoyt, wVith a few appropriato ro,
marks, introduced M'ajor E. B. Murray
s the first spaOker. R10 de!iVored an
addroess on the origin of the "Red
Shirts," showing how they first ori
ginatod in Pendleton, then spread
all over the Stato, having a great in
fluenco in the campaign.
At the closo of Major Murray's
speech, Col. Hoyt, roso and stated
that they had re'eived information
that thero was a Radical meetingo to
be held at three o'clock over in the
"Fork," at Townvile, and they didn't,
intend to let any Democrats speak.
He then asked Lhreo mounted co * mpa
nics to be in readiness to aoi>pany
himself and othcrs at one o'clock,
over thero to divido. time with them.
They went at the appointed time, but
we haven't heard the rosult.
Gen. Moise was then introduced,
and delived a splendid oration, in
such a clear and forciblo manner that
it carried convjCtion to every mind.
.Next Camte lion. J. 1L. Orr, wvho do,
livered a good speech, in his manly,
eloquent style. But they saved the
mostL pleasanit pairt for tho last, when
the peoplo were tired and hungry, and
would take somnetlbing very pleasant

was the speech of our' leasan3Lt, kind
