The Star in the Cloud.
This eve the sun in glory sank,
In royalty ie bowed;
But, left behind a gorgeous hank
Of gold and crimson clouds.
High in the east the moon arose,
In regal beauty crowned,
To grace the eone of evening's close,
'Mid zephers sweetest sound.
But in this cloud of beauty raro
Upon its airy throne,
A g-lden star of jewt-la glare,
Sat regnant all alone,
No other star its graniduer shared,
It reigned a sister giucon,
Unto tie moon tha'. proudly peered,
With smiling graceful nein.
I watched It glow in splendor bright
And wield its magic wand,
Me thought those atreams of brilliant bright,
Told of an Angels hand.
That kindled every golden beam,
With Lleaven's magic touch,
The heart, will fondly meet the gleam,
That gently falls from euch.
But darker ahadows gathered round
The light, fauttas:io cloud,
With serpents coil thoy softly wound,
Within its gorgeous shroad.
The orlhnson tinis began to fade,
The gold was melting too;
What had been beauly. then was shade,
Upon the boundless blue.
Darker grew the midnight. cloud,
It. gloomy frowned afar ;
Still upward, ever grand and proud,
Arose the evening atar.
I watched it on its darkened throne,
Me thought that was the way,
That [lope in life forever shone,
Through bright or clouded day.
The breeze arose beyond- the'vale,
And fanned the courts of lleaven,
And by the rising of the gale,
The midnight cloud was riven.
Then brighter shone the golden star,
That ceased to reign alone,
For other stars oano from afar,
And round their Princess shone.

A supplement to the Laurensville
Herald, dated Monday 24th. enables
ua to give the following: The chibf
actor fl' all the villaintes previous to
the disturbance of the 20th, was Joe
Crews. For weeks before, 1p91e
families had never undressed for bed,
so greit was the alarm caused by
Crews' teachings and exhortations to
burn and kill. The negroesi were told
by him that they had the State gov.
ernment, and must keep it or die;
that it was necessary for their liberty
that he should be elected ; he had pit
arms in their hands; they niust use
D them ; they had the toroh-and match
D es were cheap. They must burn and
destroy ; and that all over fifteen
could vote, as lie had pasted the law
I himself. The building occupied by
Crews was an old one-- known as :Tin

s stores, he had his office ; and hero,
t al8o, he had an armory of State guns,
9 about 1,000. Besides this armory lie

and fortified. Joe refused to allow

'Error Wounded"-A Virtuons Iffort is a
Success-No Giving Atway.
Whates'er the result of the recent
election, as to the general tieket,
much good has been done.
When some of our friends doubted
the ;olioy of our placing iin the field
oaudidutes for Governor and Lieuten
aut-Governor, Ae argued that this
course ought to be adopted-that it
was essential in this way to give force
and point to the opposition. Ve
coutended further, that it was impor. I
tatnt to give an earpose of the flagrant
frauds and- plu.ndeirings that had. char
acterized the radical regine, and wo
said l9t the thinders 9f our. incigna
tion be heArd, and let the lightnings
of truth go forth to scathe the enumies
(ifthe State. This has been done,
and. well done. "Error wounded"
writhes in pain--and strike it again
and again, until it "dies among its
worshippers." Look at the exposurea
that have been made :
Starting with the Executive, the
damning charges made by lampton
and Butler and Carpenter and others
will cling to Gov. Scott like the shirt
of Nessus. In general, the charges
made, proved, established against the
ring of plunderers and corruptionists, I
will not soon be forgotten, and those
men stand pilloried 'in shame before
the country. Nor will the good seed
sown broadcast over the State fail in
good time to bring us albtarvast of
good. Outside of the practical results
the Reform effort is a snccehe, because
it was an effort in behalf of truth and
v i rt ue.
Let us go on, resolved to carry on
our opposition until we recover the
power and the influence to which we
are entitled by nature and nature '
God. It is the God-given right and
province of the white man of the
South. to give tone and direction to
Southern civilizAtion. Denying to the
colored men no right to which they
are entitled before Heaven and man
kind, let us nevertheless assert and
win that supremacy to which wo shall
show ourselves entitled by superior
genius, vittue and enterprise. ''o this
