Io spite of all the phases of influences
which have been brought to bear against
it, the meeting, to-day, will ba large
aod influential. The whites will be out
ia force, and there will be a large rep?
resentation of our oolored people, tnaoy
of the latter coaling with an earnest
purpose to hear and learn. Aod we
doubt not good impressions will be
made upou their minds.
In DO case has a Radical meeting in
Sumter been disturbed, or the speakers
intetrupted by those differing from
them. The most obnoxious of their
speakers have, time and again, said
what they pleased, and delivered most
offensive and insulting speeches without
molestation iu any way.
We claim the same right for the
Union Reform speakers to-day. There
will be no disturbance, or attempt at
disturbance, on the part of the Reform?
ers; and, in advance, we notify the
Radical leaders to this effect. We in?
tend to put this matter beyond doubt.
We understand the oolored militia is
to be out to day ; and we have it from
trust-wort hy sources, that the Captain
here has ordered the men to carry so
many rounds of ammunition. We can?
not seo the necessity for this. No one
is disposed to interfere with the right
of the colored man to vote-no one, on
the Reform side, expects a difficulty, or
will countenance any who deport them?
selves in a manner calculated to pro?
duoe a disturbance. The meeting means
peace and order-free speech and fair
play, and nothing more ; and this it in?
tends to have.
gsjrju Judge Carpenter, Gen. Butler,
Capt. Tupper, and Messrs. Moroso and
Leo, of the Courier and News, arrived
yesterday, and were properly received at
the depot. Gen. Kershaw will arrive to

teresting letters of our accomplished

our second and fourth pages to day.

Messrs. CHAS. H. MOISE & Co., are
now making preparations for receiving
the bulk of their fall stock, whilst be?

ri NU WniTING INK.
Wc are indebted to Messrs. WALKER,
EVANS & COGSWELL for a bottlo of
'.Panknin's Patent Acid Resisting Black

fected by acid, aud hence is valuable to
commercial men, besides being a fine
article for common usc.
DEATH OF (lIltsT UUGUMA MCIN?
Thc sad news of this death reached
our town on Sunday morning last, buy?
ing occurred tho day previous, at her
res ?deuce at Lynchburg.
This estimable lady was well known
and greatly beloved, in this immediate
community, whero she resided up to tho
time of her marriage with Mr. JAMES
G. MCINTOSH. She was the sister of
our much beloved friend and fellow
citizen, D. J. WINN. Our sympathies,
as well as those of a large circle of friends
aro warmly extended to the nilli ct ed re?
latives of the deceased lady.
A person, calling himself Dr. G. N.
LEVISON, applied, on Monday last, to
tho Master of one of our Masonic
Lodges for assistance. Whilst tho
necessary arrangements were being
made for protection against imposition,
and for extending the assistance sought,
the party disappeared, making his way
off on foot on the Railroad track iu the
direction of Kingsville. The Wil
mington Star of Aug. 24, makes un?
favorable mention of a visit of the same
person to that city, in the capacity of
a lecturer. Our exchanges at Columbia
and j Augusta would do tho Masonic
Fraternity service by mentioning these
TBE COTTON MARKET.
A letter from one of our leading
merchants, now in New York, and re?
ceived by us on Monday last, says :
"Tell our planting friends they need
not look for any advance in cotton.
Were the war at once to stop, cotton
would not advance. The supply is now
equal tn the demand, which ha3 not
beon the case fer tho past few years. I
look lor steady prioes for the next thirty
days, and by the middle of October, I
think it will be down here to 15 els,
which would make it 9 to 12 at Sumter/'
Mr. Wm. E. Mikel!*, one of the most
promising of tho younger members of
the Charleston bar, died Tuesday morn
ing, after a painful illness. No man of
his age was more trusted or loved ; nor
was it doubted that his ability and in?
dustry would make his nature years.

"it a significant indication, that wher
"ever Judge Carpenter, General Butler
"and other Reformers have spoken, a]
"decided impression has been the result.
"The power of troth ?JJ thoa illustrated.
"Nor is tbero any doubt now aa to tho
"unanimity with which the effort for
"Reform will bo prosecuted. On tho
"part of the sober, intelligent and vir?
tuous people of the State, there is but |
'one roice. Political prudery . and a
'certain sentimentality may iofluenoo a
'few.men to decline to enter heartily
'in the movement for Reform. But
'the great mass of tho people opposed
