The Great Tornado.
O%, Tbailday afernoon last the
Inost violent tornado, whirlwind, or
something of the kind, passed over
this unfortunate town, leaving des
truction mnd desolation Is its train.
The. dtLy had been an unusually mild
and balmy one, scarcely a cloud float
jng i the sky, until about four o'clock
in the afternoon, when t dense black
cloud was seen rising in the west. It
rteadily and rapidly approached,
overonsting the whole heavens with
its itsidnight pall. The wind began
to blow furiously, accompanied by
vivid fl,.shes of lightening and deaf
ening peals of thunder. Suddenly an
awful, ominous roaring was heard in
the West, and in a few moments the
storn bad swept past scattering every.
thing in its pitb, except the most sub.
So far as we have been able to learn
the destructive fury of the blast was
first experionoed at the plantation of
Mrs. 11oden, five miles to the west of
the town. Hero all the houses on
the place were totally wrecked.
The saw and griet mill of E'lijah D.
Walker were the next buildings to
feel its force. They were both level.
ed to the ground. From this point
its track is marked by scattered
fences and uprooted trees till 'it struek
the town on the hill near the old Male
Academy. The firat houses in its
course were the large flour mill, built
of brick, formerly the pro perty of
Major N. R. Rves, and the small
brick building occupied by David
Jones, colored. The former of these
it damnged badly, and the latter it
entirely demolished ; burying Jones
and his wife in the ruins, but not in
juring either of them seriously. Wi p.
ing out orexi.tence three or four small
houses belonging to Mossrs.Smith &
Molton, and one belonging to Allen
Farrar, colored, it passod on to the sub.
sturtial aesidence of Mr. John U. Mo.
Fadden. All of his out buildings,
three in number, were demolished.
The rosidenoa was too strong to yield
to the storm ; though the chinineys
were eartied away, and the house
itself airained and partially uteroofud.
Between tnis point and where it cross
ed the railroad track, it des:royed
two smLall huscs belonging to F. 1.
MuNinch, one of A. N. MNmnoh,
three of lon. S4uel MuAlily, two of
William Qutelabau mu, and one belong.
img to tio Charlotte, Columbia &
Augusta Railro:td. Several of these
hou8es W010 occupied at the time. t
none of the occupants had any bone.,
broken. In some Cases they wore
fam.teied in the ruins and had to be
extricated. Tio first building en
countered on crosting the railroad
was the hlge steai will of W. R.
Robert6on. The brick walls of the
building suecessfully resisted the
storm. It wa,, however, unroofed and
all the wooden additions to the 'naln
building entirely wrecked. The mil.
)er, Huarrison Bailey, hearing the roar
ing of the approaching storm, at.
toempted to escape from the building.
As soon as lie meached the ground lhe
was eaught up by the w bi.rlwind, and
carried to the distance of at least a
hund red yards, where lie war lodged
against nan elm tree. He hjs no re
collectio,n, he says, of passing through
the ar; remem~nbers nothing fromt tihe
titme be jumiped out of the mill till ire
found himsel'f at the t.ree.
From this point the storm took Its
courso along the back street extend
ing from the railroad to the reidene
of Major G. W. Melton. This street
was built up almost entirely with
amiall, one story houses, all of which,
witm one or two exceptions, wont
down before the- fury of the blast.
'The princip ad sufferers eon this street
were Mr. WiHIIiamn Nicholson, estate
of Johnm Killian, deceased, John Mo
Cauthren, George McCora'ick, Miss
Isabella McCaifferty, A. II. Davega,
Mrs. IHaird, William Ross, Mrs. S.
]N. Albright, Dr. S. E. JBraitton, and
Major James Piagain. Ott thme promai
ses owned b~y each of these persons at
least one house was enti-ely destroyed
and' ini, several instances as maany as
four. The next place in thie path of
the destroyer was the handsomoeresi
deuce and grounds of Major G. W.
Molton, Intendant of the town. The
house being large and substantially
built was very slightly damaged.
The chief ornament of the grounds
Was the socient forest trees that sur
r.onnded thme house. The great ma
jority of these were either torn out
bythea roota', or t wisted cit above the
ground. Their loss is irreparable.

Wednesday Morning, May 1. 1872.
In view of a probable combination
of the Democratic and Liberal Re.
publiean parties in the next Presiden
tial election, the question very natur
ally arises, upon what basis of com
promise will the coalition be effeot
ed, or will there be a necessity for any
compromise whatever. Arguing from
a liberal standpoint, we cannot see
that a possible necessity for a compro
mine could spring up, except in the
school of the "Bourbons" or "Im
praoticables," men who are still dis
posed to fight over the battles of the
late war, and run after shadows. We
contend that what were the cardinal
principles of Democracy ten years
ago are dead issues now, and cannot
In any way cnter Into a political con
test. Even the question of the va
lidity of the 14th and 15th amend
ments, which was an issue in the eam.
paign of 1868, is regarded as settled
by the great majority of voters of the
country, and although their constitu
ti'tna1it.v may be a debatable subject,
as it unAoubtedly is, to all intents
and purposes they are parts of the
constitution, and minut be recognized
na such until decided otherwise. A
Democratic President cannot abate
their force, or retard their operation,
and it, is vain and foolish for the
Democratic party to fight against a
principle that cannot be reached.
The living issues of the day requi~re all
the attention of D~emnorats, without
turning to waste time over questions
settled at leaset for the present. The
rapid approach of the general govern
ment to contralization anad doepotism
is a far graver issue than any over
which political battles have here
tofore been fought, and ertainly de
mands the conavbinatrion of all conser
vative oitizens to arrest if. The De
mocracy cannot afford to delay a mto
meuit in seurching for arnd exhuming
something already dead, but must
take a progressive stand, and meet
boldly the seguiremsents of ther times.
To aobiove final success, it must be a
party of progress,. not live ten years
behind the age, but keep pace with it.
In this wawy only will it accomplish its
mais4ion, and fulfil its destiny. It', for
a time, it becomes necessary to sacri
floe the party name, what matters it,
so long as it may advance the general
interests of the party. It must work
only in the- present,.and for the future.
'The past cannot be recalled, and the
lesues of the past lie buried with it.
Let themi remain there now. No
good can result by oalling them~ back,
and there is no wisdom in brooding
over unattainable ideas.
We ourselves do. not intend to
waste our energie. in struggling with
dead issues, but purpose launching
out in the world of progress, and
grapple with living, ' vital quos.
tions.. Life is too short to employ its
moments in followingL after ideals and
phantoms, and while our strength
lasts, we hope to use it in striving af
