The Hon. Samuel Dibble, of Orangeburg
ounty, the Democratic nominee, has been
vlooted to Congrass from the Second District,
a fill the vacancy occasioned by the death of
ae lion. M. P. O'Connor. The Republicans
made no contest, Mickey prefering the chan
,es of securing his seat under the election of
'lst fall, when he was a candidate against
Nir. O'Connor, and whose seat, lie was con
:.esting when Mr. O'Connor died.

A Graded School.
We are informed that it is the purpose of
Professors Dreher and Cary to establish,
about the first of September next, a graded
iohool at this place. Professor Dreher is a
teacher of experience and once held a pro.
fessorship in Newberry College at Walhalla
Mr. Cary is a graduate of that College, and
haW been the successful head of the high
school at this place for the past five months.
No place in the State affords more- or better
facilities for a graded school t)ian Pickens,
and by the aid and co-operation of our peo
ple, we believe these gentlemen will succeed
.in their undertaking. We will have more to
fay about this Important subject in the future,
but in the mean time we hope that either
Professor Dreher or Professor Car- (or both)
will favor the public, through our columns,
with the particulars of their plan.
The voters of Laurens county, voted on the
question of a subscription cf $76,000 to the
Greenville and Laurens Railroad, and $76,000
to the Greenwood, Laurons and Spartanburg
Road, on the 9th instant. Both subscriptions
were carried by a majority of 1,820. Green
viele county has already voted $76,000 to the
Greenville and Laurens Road, which with the
$76,000 now voted by L-ntrons county, will
build the road between the two places. The
Greenville News advises the commencement
of work at. once, and entertains a lingering
hope of Greenville yet securing the Virginia
Midland. We hope all these roads and others
may be built in our State. They will give
our people more market and mall facilities,
enhance the value of real estat3; cause fac
tories to spring up and immigrants to come
amongst us, and add thousands of dollars to
the taxable property of the State.
The dead lock still continues at Albany.
The usual Republican method of carrying an
election, bribery, lhae been'r esorted to. One
Bradley, a st alwart, Conkling representative,
placed $2,000 In the hands of the Speaker of
the House, 'which lhe swears was offered him
as a bribe to desert Conkling. Hie swears
that Senator Sessions, the leader of the anti
Conkling faction gave him the money. An
investigation is in progress. Other members
of the Legislature are making statements
that they have been offered bribes. There is
nothing unusual in this attempt, or actual
bribing of Republican legislators, but it is
unusual for them to confess the fact and give
up the money.
Seneca City la excited over the finding of
diamonids in that vicinity. Some of the
aewspapers are incredulous about it, and
seem to think there has been some "salting"
done; the Seneca Journal protests that such

gery about it.

Col. A. P. Butler, our indeltigable Com
missioner of Agriculture, is doing all he can
to' have Wouth Carolina properly represented
at the Cotton Exhibition whieh is to be held
at Atlanta, Oeorgia, Ootober 5th, 1881.
The following oircular from the Commis,
CoxxusuIosua or AorioULTUR,
CoLUMPIA, 8. 0., May, 1880.
DUAIL SIR: At the last, regular session of
the Legislature an act was passed creating an
Agricu tural Department. This is an impor.
tant recognition of the rights of the planters, I
and I sincerely trust that I may have their C
co-operation in the effiont to develop the resour
ces of our State.
We will soon havew at thewoomis of the Com
missioner, in Columbia, cases or apartments
for each County, and it I& our desire to exhib
it the products of every County; and we re
quest that every citizen will feel that this cir
cular Is directed especially to him and aid the
Department by all means in his power. The
Commissioner will neglect nothing that will
advance the agricultural and mechanical in
dustries of the State, and he confidently relies
upon the people to sustain him.
We desire to have samples of the producte
of every County. They will be carefully ar
ranged in the proper cases and plainly marked I
with the name of County and contributor, We
want specimens of wheat, corn, oats, peas, rye,
barley, rice, buckwheat, flax, peanuts, tobac
co, cotton, millet, clover and grasses, dried I
fruit, chufas, molasses, wines, woods minerals,
stone, marble, any article used for agricultu.
ral or mechanical purposes manufactured in
the State, native birds, insects, and, in short
anything and everything that will show- the
wealth of the County, aid and encourage home
manufactures and prove interesting to visitors.
The importance of having such an' exhibit
at the capitol is apparent. It will be our best
advertisement in showing our wonderful re
sources, and more can be learned In this way,
by strangers seeking information, in a day,
than in a year's travel. It will be a fine me
dium of exchange, purchase or sale of seeds
to our own people, and in learning more of our
capabilities. I earnestly appeal to you to aid
me in this great work by sending any article
for exhibition that you think would be at all
interesting. They should be plainly marked
and addressed to A. P. Butler, Commissioner
of Agriculture, Columbia South Carolina.
The Department will pay all expenses of ship
ping. Very respectfully,
A. P. BUTLEn,
Oommissioner of Agriculture.
In addition to the above, the Commissioner
writes us personally on the opposite bide of
the circuler, which we take the liberty of
publishing, as it gives more fully than we
could do, the purposes of the Department,
and the importance of having the County
COLUMBIA S. C., May 24, 1881.
DEAR SIR: The Cotton Exposition to be hold
at Atlanta Georgia, Oct. 5, 1881 promises to
be of immense benefit to the entire South. In
addition to the exhibition of cot ton fabrics,
and machinery for the manufacture of the same
it Is contemplated to exhibit Agricultural and
forest products and minorals. It. is of the
greatest importance that the South Carolina
exhibition should be creditable to the State --
1t will be a splendid advertisement of our re
sources and will largely contribute t~o the in,.
ducement of capital and immigration. We
appeal to you personally to assist us in mak,.
ing a collection of our products. We earnest,.
ly desire that every County shall be properly
represented and in making this appeal to you
we feel that you will render the Depart mont
every assistance in your power to make a
proper showing for your County. Beside the
articles mentioned on the opposite side of t his
sheet we want the largest pumpkin, gourd,
ear of corn, boll of cotton, stalks of corn and 4
cotton &c., &c. that you can send and fruit
of all kinds. The fruit should either be preo
served in alcohol or forwarded so as to reach <
us before it has matured.
We request that all contributions will be
forwarded at the earliest practicable time, so <
that we may have space allotted us in Atlanta.
Trusting that you will feel an interest in this 4
matter, I am very truly yours,1
A. P. BUTLaR,
Commissioner of Agriculture.
This Is a matter of great importance to the.
farmers of our County, and they should tak e
great pride in having the County creditably
represented. They will observe that the
Department proposes to pay all expenses of
transportation, and if they will forward us
samples of any or all the articles mentioned,
we will properly label and forward as re
quested, to the Department. We consider
Pickens one of the best Counties In the State,
and shall feel very much chagrined if she is
not creditably represented at the Exhibition.
So we trust the farmers will send in their
articles and see that there Is no failure. Let
us show Pickens off for once.
A Gary Memorial Fund.
At a meeting of the Democratic Executive
Committee of Edgefield County, recently, steps
were taken to raise a memorial fund for the
purpose of erecting a monument to the mem,
ory of General M. W. Gary. Upon this sub,.
ject we take from the resolutions adopted by
the committee the following:
"8. That, for this purpose, we recommend
that a mass meeting of the citizens of Edge.,
field county be held at Edgefield C. H., on
Monday, the 20th instant, to take measures
for raising a Gary Memorial Fund, to be ex
pended in the erection of a monument, statue
or bust of the great soldier and statesman, as
may be hereafter determined.
4. That we cordially invite the Democratic
Executive Committe~s of sister counties, and
our fellow citizens throughout the State, to
co-operate with us in raising a Gary Memo

To those sooutomed to observe the eourse of
ivents from the standpoint of the National
"Spital, and to note the vibrations of the poll.

igns of disintegration and utter dissolution
if the party in power could not be more dis.

9 as if the edict were written in large chars.
era upon the wall of the Capitol building. A
>arty with nothing to hold it together but the
iohesive power of spoils, and beset on every
ide with conflicting interests and personal
Luarrels, cannot long exist under any circum-.
tances- but when, besides this, it is reeking
rith corruption and its leaders have lost not on
y the confidence of each other but of the rank
tnd fic, and the party organs have set to abu
ing opposite factions and threatening to "bust
hings," the end is in plain sight. This is the
sondition of the Republican party to-day.
It is not the Conkling quarrel that is going
,o ruin the party, but it is those conditions
hat make the quarrel dangerous; which it
ias only aided in uncovering. The National
Eepublican, for years the organ of the party
iere, and now a strong supporter of Conkling,
ias just taken a very significant position Its
ditor, George C. Gorham, late candidate for
3ecretary of the Senate, was Dorsey's lieuten
6nt in Indiana and helped to distribute the
mormous fund with which that State was
purchased in October. He now declares that
.he Republican party has come to be the party
)f corruption and monopoly; that it no longer
represents the people or has any principle,
and that the present Administration is the
oreature and embodiment of the great corpo
ration monopoly power. This is strange talk
to come from a Republican Journal but it is
the truth. But for the active influence of the
3orporations and the money contributed by
them or their representatives the party would
have been beaten in the last campaign. The
President elected knows whathe owes to these
influences, and he has always leaned toward
them. His first appointee to the Supreme
Bench is a corporation attorney. The leading
member of his Cabinet is a man who has been
investigated by Congress for complicity in job,
and who is believed to have prostituted his
rormer position as Speaker of the House to the
:orrupt service of corporations. Every
icbheme Ihat has been before Congress for years
ias had the support of James U. Blaine and
or the Brazilian steamsihip subsidy of John
Ioachi he was the especial advocate. We shall
icar more of this later on.

The farmers are doing all they can, working
almost day and night. I never saw better
workers in my life than we has e in this neigh
borhood, and It is all principally for Guano
We hear grumbling about high taxes, "a
fence" law, and all these things, but we hew
no complaint if it takes the whole cotton erop
to pay the guano bills. I don't condems
the use of guano entirely, but, let us use iese
of it and make more manure at home. This
we can do by using lime, which cost hardly
anything compared with the cost of Xsanes
Th an if we fail to make a good crop, we can
keep what we make instead of being com
pelled to give e whole years work to the
guano companies. Lime with rotten leaves
and some rich soil will make just as good
ootton as any guano-I tested the two last
year side by side on the same land. If we
would follow this Iplan, we could soon gpt
out of debt, tax or no tax, and be able to pay
the SBNTINEL for advertisements and sub.
I hope the people will take this matter Fto,
consideration and begin in time, so as tobe
able to keep at home the profits that go t& thke
guano companies. Yours truly,
The Cireuit Judges.
