Judge Carpenter thus closed his
speech : "I never sought this noni

battle under tl.o bainr of some Caro
liniai. Your people put it upon mue.
I& is your fight. ; it will be your victo

disgrace. If you say you cannot'vote
for me because I was in the Federal
army, thank God, I have no such
feeling towards you. I yet have to
to have the first quarrel with a Con
federate soldier. When a muan offers
his life for his honesty, I aim bound
to believe he is honest. Your sol
diers fought in a cause that they be
lieved to be holy and just, and your
State sent to its support as gallant
mon as ever drew a sword or shoulder
ed a nuiket. I honor such men, and
it is their memories I wish to preserve
from everlasting dishonor. You (san.
not honor these men more than I do.
Their fame has spread throughout the
whole land. It is a part of my hori
tage ; it is American property.
Those who have gone down to thnir
graves in the discharge of duty, amid
the roar of cannon and the flash of
mushets, have sealed their fame
forever and it can never bo defaced
by mnn. It is the song of the oceans
that wash the shorcs of this A niericain
continent. The trcees are whispering
and the brooks are murmuring their
names ; the very air 1.k peopled with
the sltrit of their tioble retiolvesR.

We preont to our reiders this
morning the ticket which the Young
Men's Union Reform Club of iums.
boro have resolved to vote for in the
coming canviss. 'Vo congratulate
thom upon the independenco and pub
It spirit with which they have so gal
lantly come forward and proposed it,
and we trust that it may be supported
throughout the County.
But why, it may be asked, why an
other ticket ? The reasan is plain.
The nomination of Monday, October
3d, is unsatisfactory, and we propose
to ignore, repudiato and plainly bolt
it. Isaac M iller declines the nomina
tion. So does Mr. CAlvin jirice.
Alfred Moore has not taken the pains
to hot it be clearly known if he ao
eop ta or rot. Of the nominees for:
County Commissioners, M r. Dunlap:
declines the nomination, and would
rathier not have the votes of respecta.I
1)10 and honest white men who raise
no question of polities and simply de
sire less taxation, debt and stealing,
than to have their votes, so deeply at
tached does ho profess to bo to his
colored associaites, and so sure is ho of
his election and three dollars per
diem through themni. John Martin
"will acce pt if it is agrecaM>' to hsis jarly
for him to do so.'" The whole ticket
of the 3d of October has, therefore,
proven an impracticable fizzle, a ri
diculous failure in an effort to comn
promise with a set of bitter partisans,
determined to support the present r.
gime in high taxation aiid wasteful
oxpenditut es, to the ruin of the State,
and con fldent in their numbers and in
that antagonism between thte blaeks
and whites which they continually in
flame for political purposes. Another
Union Reform ticket then .is forced
upon us, or no ticket at all. And
since little time wats left, the sugges
tion of citizens here and from various
parts of the County, who were pres.
cut to hoar Col. MlcKissiek's excellent
speech has been acted on, and the
Winnsboro Club have nominated a
ticket, which they do not dict ate to any
citizen, but which they intend to sup
port themselves, nnd solicit for it theI
support of the enitiro County.
There is upon the ticket the natne
of a colored matn, Muajor Boulwar.-.
His charneter is unimpeachable, and
he is in full sympathy with us ini our
desire for more eonotnieal and better
govern mont. Other colored men
would hAvn hAO voeted for, ifhe ch/
so'ighu the nsominaf ion, but it was not
desired to have overtures fot harmoniy
declined' again. The. white people to
a sisfy their own sense of just ice, w1ll
do what is right towards the blaoks,
but they 'have gone as far in this
Union Reform movement as they efer
intend to go. Heore thev plaice tim
selves and the blanka niAay come; if
they have virtue and intelligen'e
enough to do so, and take the offer.df a
friendsbhp and cooperation that is
inade to them, and we will work out t
cur destiny togtln. n..t if the V
annot compitohends us, and continue t
o fear and suspect us, let them well
onw that this is our State, and we
rill notAurronder it to ignorance end

Carolina, among whom he was born,
and to whom he will do all the good
he knows how or has the ability to do,
to his latest breath. Gentlemen, the
day of ourredemption, and freedom
and power is nearer than some sup.
pose. But if it be deferred, lot us
wait for it. We have a past. to live
upon, and we should be content to live,
if need be, uipon memory alone. We
have a history crowded with such
memories as virtue could live upon
for a century, the very cechnes of
which, as they reverberate down the
succe-sive generations of the future,
will wake to life soldiers, 6tateEmen
and scholirs, not unworthy of their
illustrious ancestry. Let us cheerful
ly and hopefully do our immediate
duty. And when tho imipartial his
torian of our State shall sum un lip the
evidence of the record of this decade
(beginning with 1870 and enling with
1880) let the proud verdict be . "This
generation of Carolinians proved
worthy of their past history, and were
true to themselves. They suflered
with fortitudo and patience, aiid, by
their firmness, prudence. modieration
and wisdom, promf.ted progre:s in
wealth and civilizatioti, rettored liber
ty, and redeemed the State."
A IBlesstmisg I11 1M Retmsote Re
We feel deeply for the planting in,I
terest. in the distress that the prenent
price of cotton is' causing Many a
planter will not pay expenses, unless
prices rise. But the low price will
cause a movement of the blacks from
our State to Ibetter lands and higher
wages-a movement that will be both
largo anr rapid. This will restore to
tic whItOs the pul'til Ui cont rol of the
State. Secondly, it will compel a
better system of farming, necessity
never having yet failed to be to the
white race the mother of invent ion.
Thirdly, it will cause a greater diver
sity of products, and bring stock-rais
ing again into favor. And lastly, it
will cause a resort to manufactur ing
in its various branohes as a wonder
fully fruitful source of income.
As it is not long before your Dis
trict Agricultural Fair takes place, I
ivould like to make a few suggestions.
ht is likely that the first Fair will niot
be so good as each suoceeding one will
be, yet by using every uonns at hand
it can be nmade a very nseful and in
oresting one. Perhaps it is natural
for every one to supposo that he has
momething bettor than anybody else
mas. By exhibiting the said some
hing at a fair ho might he convinced
f his error. Now~ I think I have the
test turnip scodl in the Diistrict, and
tlso the best turnip -patch. At6 any
rate, I will -challenge the District.
Bhy the by, my patch is not in thme
Dietrtiot, but I put it on that side of
ny house and nearly as near thme line
is my possession would allow. If sea
ons prove favorable some of the tur
tips will be on exhibition.
My corn heed I think is of a snpe
-ior quality. Some of .it will be on

naking brooms out of old field straw.
f nothing happenms to prevent, son e
