I am not at a loss to understand the
causes which prompted your little soul
to the commission of said act.
* You know for some time pnst that I
had lost all coufidonce in you us a pub
lic leader, and had frequently expressed
myself, in unreserved terms, aa having
not a shadow of respect for j ou as a
Under these circumstances, and my
refusal to bo quiet, I did not look for
anything short of what you have done
It is a well established fact that you
have rarely retained a man in office who
had tho boldness to condemn your
wicked aud inGdel mode of living, your
gross and immoral conduct, and your
lying and thieving record as a public
A man might possibly wink at the
peccadillos of a fellow creature who
manifested any signs of remorse or con
Iritiouj he might, too, commiserate the
tuns of him whoso hapless misfortune
it is to have an over development of the
animal passion; but for the overt sins
ol a laughing, remorseless, libertine

That you hare disgraced the position

Scott, \i a fijet too patent to bo denie 1;
that you ore unfit to hold the humblest

conscientiously believe; that you c>uld
nnt enter any'hotel at this place, as a
boarder, or bo the guest of any houc?t
Republican here, 1 also B?riou?ly aver.
During your lato trial lor larceny,
when it was expected that you would ap
poor and nuswer to the charge against
you, I heard tho largost hotol pro;>riotor
in Orangoburg earnestly srear that you
should not enter his hou.10 as a guest.
Should you, therefore, desire to give
this county a call during this campaign,
I would advise you to ucgotiatc with
tho jailor or keeper of the county poor
house beforehand, as I do not think any
other place would give you rations or
And now my much offended Governor
I respectfully request that you accept
my resignation as Aid de-Camp upon
your stuff. It is hard enough, God
knows, to have to live under one so

renegade fiom virtue, but it is much
worfto to be associated with him official
You will hear from mo from time to

According to the County Chainnans
call and precinct Chairnians notice a
largo mass meeting of the voter* .A'
Lewisville Precinct assembled at Lewis
ville on Saturday August the 1st, to
elect delegates to go to the Convention
to be hold at Orangeburg C. II., on the
13th, ins*.. As usual, there was a great
pow-wow, as to who would ho the pir
mnnant Chairman. About the h mr of
10 A M., Mr. C W Caldwell Precinct
chairman endeavored to call the meeting
to order, but found that the chair had
been supplied by one sore bead, who
expected to advance his own interest,
by ?-o ninth assumption, but the chair
man who is never at a 1 ss, as to how he
should act on such occasions very
quitely withdrew sonic two hundred
yards, and in fact a more central place,
the crowd (generally) following and
called the meeting to order, st.itid tho
object, and wai uninimoudy [elected
pcrmunant chairman. The me:titi;
transacted all the busitiC'S before it for
consideration in a very orderly an 1
short space of time. The bogus meet,
ing continued in session for some time,
quarrelling ub to who should be the
contestants. Judging from the actions
t,f some two or three, two or throJ
tickets will be put before the people
this fall in Orangeburg County.
About the time lh-j regular
Convent ion adjourned, the fact
of II P Cooke K.?q., Trial Justice
bceing removed becam j prey aleut?the
most intense excitement predominate]
for a while, the meeting sympathising
with Mr. Coeko and coudemming the
action of Gov. .Moses, many swearing
that if Moses ever had any chance in
Orangeburg County for re-election, the
last vestige of a chance had been ro
moved. 1 learn that (Jo v. Moses scut
for Mr. Cooke to com c to Columbia,
aud 1 sec from the papers that he went,
and 1 sec the result of his interview.
The (Jot's actiou seaiuiugly wjuld
convey the idea that he has got the
absolute power to perpetuate his po.si
tion for lifo, but if all men wore like
Mr. Cooke (who is poor and can scarcely
afford, j ocuniatilly to act independent)
would hold out and make no eon session
to this corrupt head o f our State. Gov.
Mo.ccs would bo compelled to rely on
his merit for re clcetiou, aud in that
event instead of bociug sent to the
Gubcrnational seat this fall woul 1 meet
a more appropriate place under the
confines of John R Dennis.
The Orangeburg Aurora Bate Bill
and Lewisville Pioneer Rase Ball Clubi
played a match game on the grounds of
the Pioneers. The game was interesting
aud was witnessed by a largo concourse
of pcoplo a groat many from Orange
burg being present. Among tho nuin
ber was his Hon. J W Mosoley, both
sidvs played well, the number of scores
boing Aurora 4??Pioneers 3i, tho
beating eleven, a small beat considering
tho practice of the two clubs, ono with
three years practico and tho other but
about three moiitls. The visiting club
were well entertained, and friendship
and harmoney was the order of the day
and in a short time the game will bo
played again, at tho Aurora's ground.
