iaving a rule served upon him.
Jpon the return of the rule he made
complete vindication of his con

Reid completely exonerated Mr.

ror the services he had rendered the

and several of them will doubtless
omie to grief.
We give a synopsis of Col.Aikens ad -
Irece on the Granges. This synopsis is
mperfect, as indisposition prevented
as from taking full notes. Col.
Aiken gives good advice to the
patrons and shows conclusively Lt,
bonofits resulting from the order. It
is the case that where the gronges are
fourishing, farming is improving.
'hie difficulty is that people do not
take hold of the matter properly.
We have soon farmers collooted on
the street ouroors earnestly d isousi
ing the crops, and yet, on entering
the Grange they have nothing to say.
If they wovnil n'y 'iCsi agt icultu

outside, all the members would be
benefited, and the meeting, be full of
But whore nothing isdone save the
transaction of routino business the
Grange cannot prosper.
We regret extremely that Col.
Aiken apparently in his address
counseled farmers to run off cotton
apen. which they may have given
liens. Col. Aiken cannot mean this,
for suoh advice would tend to violate
the rules of common horesty and
would certainly cause the farmers to
enidure the penalty o'f the law. It
is therefore unfortunate that he ut
tered any remarks that might ho con
strued into meaning this, for it would

The rest of the address was very
etertaining and was well recoived.
We trust that new life and vigor
may he infued into the Granges of
this County. Ridgeway Grange is
flourishing, but tho other county
Granges are doing nothing. The
question aisos w'het.her the farmers
will suffer to elude their grasp the
best opportunity ever offered to thema
for improvement, socially intellee
tually and pecuniarily.
It will be remembered that a few
days since two negroes made affidavit
in Greenville County that they wvere
present at the murder 'of Dr. Shioll
of JLaurons in 1868, and that the
murder'was instigated by Joe Crows
and hiu bon Adam.. A dam Crews
was arrested in Columnbia on this
charge and committed to jail. Hie
w~as brought up on habens corpus
before Judge Mackey who was in
Columbia en Monday. ia counsel
moved for a release on the ground
of irregular arrest, and that the war
rant was endorsed for murder on the
outside and merely charged homi
cide in the body of the warrant.
Judge Mackey hold t4io objections to
be good, and deciding thast thero was

The recent Centonnial celebrations
seem to have inaugurated an era of
good fooling betwoon the North and
the South. In the historic soones
of revolutionary events, the tw4
sections can meet with a coMmoM
fooling and united sentiment. They
remember on'y those days in which
thoirforofathers stood side by ide
with truly fraternal good. Sooi
after the inauguration of the Union,
the two sootions began to differ i6

Revolutionary gjound is therefore
about %.he only ground upon whio,
they can stand in unity. It is po,
culiarly fortunate that these Onten.

time. Fully a decade was roquired
after the civil war for sectional pass.

tonnials come sooner they would
have been failures. But everybody
is weary of the old war spirit
and is willing to accept some other

the timne for fraternal interiingling,
This is proven by the kindly spirh

ed 1500 patrons at one Grange pie. u

farmers never succeeded till they 00

rhe Speaker then denounced the -

effects cf liens'upon both the mer- r1
ohant and the farmer. The enor.
mous per contage will ruin any men,

that he might as well run his cotton P
off woen gathered. o
'In one county the recording ot P
liens gave in one year an income of 0
$6,500 to the Clerk of the Court. cc
In Abbeville therevenue this year it
is $3500, and in many other coun- s1
Lies it is also very great. The 01
Speaker's Grange allows none of its ti
members to give a lien, and' from fi
this the greatest benefit ensueu. h
He then dealt the farmors some m
raps about not reading. . Advised tt
them to subscribe to agricultural cc
works which are as useful to them as b
the law book is to the lawyer, or tt
the medical work to the physician. I
The old prejudice against "book W
farmers" must ibe exploded. Agri- it
culture in the South is fifty years al
behind hand. The delegates from w
the Northern Granes jwho came to w
Charleston this spring, stopped the 0
train between Charlotte and Colum. e
bia to examine a plough, and express. b
ed themselves as convinced that the Of
South would always remain poor until 01
the agricultural implements used tC
here be improved.
Apy bald red spot of land may be
taken and broken up with a two

The Grange elevates socially. m
But in order that this end may be re
attained, it is necessary to have
ladies in the Grange. The Spe,ikor
then eulogized the likoies and eclar.
ed that no grange wAs prosperous in B

The speaker then dwelt upon the t<
pecuniary benentse of the Grange, and 0
showed that by cc operation and h
wholesale purch ases, gre -t suvings W
can be effected.
In regard to the objections raised iy
that this would injure the merchants ri
be denied it, hut would only say that e
whore the public good conflicts withs e
the' interests of two or three men, b
thero men mnu.t be sacrificed.
'Tho speaker then explained the
secrecy of the (Grange. it possessed
no screts other than those porsessed
by other organizations. As the mer. ti
chants have their boards of orn- d
merce, the mechanics their trade b
unions, the professional men their as. o
sociations which no outsiders can join, ni
just po the farmers have their own
organzition to protect their interests, it
le then touched upon the moral d
and politieal influence exerted by the i.
Grange. It ignored religions and
creeds, mnaking.no distinctions on ac- e
count 'of themn. But it inculeatedp
chtarity an'd the Christian virtues and ti
thus exeroised a power for good. So 0
also it'ziukes no distinction because
of politics. 'But it teaches honesty
