PicNlo IN Townsui No. 1.--A cor
respondent has kindly sent us the
following account of a picnic recent
ly given in townshit, no. 1.:
"The Democratic Club, of town
ship no. 1 gave a picnic at New
Hope Church on the 28th ult. for
the purpose of extending the cause
of Democracy both in interest and
members. It was largely attePdod
by the citizens of this and several
adjoining townships, and there was
much interest manifested by the
,members of the Club,'in the increase
of its numbers and in perfecting the
organization. The Club numbers one
hundred enrolled members. Mr.
T. S. Brice, the -, president, intro
duced Col. F. Cameron, the orator
of4hedgyi in a handsome and corn
pifInentary manner, also stating the
object of the meet:ng, and in very
concise language set forth the politi
0zal-prgsects of our country. We
congratulate this club in their choice
of such a noble and worthy presis;
dent. Col. Cameron stepped fo1b
ward, and hold his audience spell
bound for several hours, while he
faithfully delineuted the past, the
present and the future of our now
down-trodden country. He earn
ostly pleaded for immediate action
and union among the voters of the
South during the present campaign.
He said that the politics of the
country were so demoralized, that
were it possible for Washington to
be resurrected from his grave ail
be a c.niitat for the gubernatorial
chair, he would be disgracefully de
feated-so averse was the party in
power to honesty and integrity.
He also touched upon our finances,
remarked that we were all going, as
fast as tipn would permit, to the
poor mans grave, the negro in the
van. But such was the negro's
credulity and ignorance that he
could never be convinced, until
Radical money was not so freely dis
pensed. After paying 4 handsome
tribute to womar, he closed his ad
dress amid the acclamations of the
crowd. The Blackstock band dis,
coursedA the music on the occasion,
and added g'reatly to the enjoymIent
of all'. It wat indded a gala--day to
01(d Newv Hope, which, though slow
in action, is steadlfast and unwaver
ing'. We ho;Se that this social and
political gathering may have its
telling effects in the future."
REPUBLICAN RATIFICATION MEETI NO
-The meeting of Republicans to
ratify the nomination of Hayes and1
Wheeler camne off on Wednesday
last. By eight or nine o'clock there
was an immense crowd of negroes
iln town-almost all -of whom had
come to hoar the speeches. About
eleven o'clock, a procession led by
George Barber, as chief marshal,
and numbering about twvo hundred,
started for the ground where the
sp)eaking was ap~pointed to take
p~lace. The speakers arrived on the
northern- bound freight train, and
were driven in carriages 'to the
place of speaking. Mr. A. M.
Mackey presided over the nmeting,
and, after stating ito purpose, intro.
duced Governor Chainberlain. We
hiave not space for a full account ol
any of the speeches. .Ihe governor
spoke in general terms of the prin
ciples and policy of tlre Republican
as op)posed to the Democratic party,
urged eto a sesity of reform~ and

remarks wore very moderate in tone
and there was nothing iln them cal.
culated to excite any ill feeling.
While not subscribing in any degre(
to the views he expressed as to th(
need of keeping the Republicar
party in p~ower', we must conlcede1
that the sp~eech was in good tast<
nd calculgted to offend/ no one
Governor Chamberlain was foillowed
by Congressman A. S. Wallace, wh<
spoke but a short time. In his re
marks there was, of course, an ur
gent apppial to the blacks to stick tc
their party, and tihe nonsensica
'sttmjst the lyv pride of cot
~ton is, due to, theuaction' of th(
Democratic majority in the nationa
House of Representatives, but ther<
was a very; peticeable. absence oj
tile i dndary larigage and appea
to p~assion that have been the chiei
burden- of allac as political lhar.
angues sindc 'rdonstruction. W4
are glad to believe .that he is at Jasi
coming to see the'folly and the den.
ger of any further continiiance o.
sndly speeche's. Thie next speakem
was Mi-. L. CasA Carpenter, collel
or of internal remenu.. His r
.marks werA coufined chiefly to
considerstion of national affairs, up(
consisted of.a review of the differen
admiiistrations since that of .Wash
ington, and an effort to. show tha
the record of the Republican' park
is in all respects better, that
that of the Democratic party. . Ai
to State affairs, he urged the neces
sity of reform, and, like Governoi
Chamberlain, distinctly told hi
colored hearers that should .th<
party nominate unfit mien, th<
voters should go to the polls ant
defeat then there. The speech wa
moderate in tone, and perfectl3
courteous in its references to th<
Democrats of the State. At the
close of Mr. Carpenter's remarks
the chainman announced that Col
F. J. Cameron asked leave to reply
to the Republican speakers, ir
behalf of the Democratic party and
Democratic principles. The ques
tion was put by Mr. Mackey, whlc
urged upon the colored peoples to givt
Col. Cameron a respectful hearing
The crowd voted ianimously in thc
aflirmative. (Jul. Cameron took the
stand, and had just commenced his
speech when many of the negroes
started to leave, causing considora
ble noise and confusion. Mr.
Mackey and others thou appealed ju
the crowd, and after a short while
they became quiet. Col Cameron
tarted anew with a severe rebuke
4o-thpse of tge aud'idep Who, first
consenting to hear him, in the very
next instant by their actions gave
the lie to their words. The weechi
was an excellent one, full of good
points, and a complete refutation of
the fallacious argmnents of the 11e
publican speakers. The speaker
gave excellent advice to his colored
heauers,.showing them the folly of
their past course, and the ucces
sity of an early improvement
in their political actions. He
was justly severe upon the white
leaders in the party, who had misled
the colored people, and estraiged
them from their truest friends. The
speech was in all respects an excel
lent one, alike creditable to the
orator and gratifying to his
many ft iends present to hear
him. At the close of Col. Cami
erol's remarks, Mr. Mackey
offered the usual resolutions, en
dorsinig Hayes, Wheeler, Chamber
lain and Wallace, which were of
course unaxinously adopted. A
few other speakers, Messrs. Smart,
Mackey, Couch and others, thxen
made a few remnarks, and the crow~d
dispersed.
We are pleased to add that not a
single disturbance occu rred duiring
the entire day In the mornfing one
negro wvas put in tihe guard house
for being drunk and disorderly on
the streets, and another in the
afternoon for a like offenee, but
there was nothing like genera]
dlisorder. The crowd--consistine
df at least twelve hundred niegroes
and Ibout two humndredl whites-wax
pecrfectly well-behaved, and by (dark
in tihe evening the streets were
clear, and everything perfectl~
quiet. Winnsbl~loro has never had a
more peaceful day than last *Wed

Tihero'i's probably no city iln th

*a wise thlipg to plaee it hero. Th~

It is said that the. Pennsylvanj
Central is the largest, mnosextensiv
andl nios Infuent -co.r..r- .
the world ; far excocdiij in influ
ence the great E:wit ludia Company
of Great Britain. It controls the
traffic of roads from the most north
ern portion of Canada to Florida ;
and from Portland, Maine, to the
a Pacific, with steamship connections
I on both sides of the continent,
1 which literally causes it to surround
the world. All tho immensew power
and influence of this gigantic corpo.
ratimn has been put forth to renider
this grand Exhibition sucessful,
and they are sparing neither labor
nor expense in cartving out their
plans.
Nor have they been n)iggardly in
their - expenditures. bult haive been
feeding lavishly an 1 naturing ca1ro

liassenger train ever known in the
history of railroading was carried!
safe and rapidly over their rold

will reduce the fares during the fal
months, which will greatly mre we.
the amount of travel. It is to he
hoped that they will commeuce on
the Southei n rads which "tey con

round trip tickets from Columbia to
Philadelphia were placed at twenty'
dollars, the increased number of
persons who wotild avail thenselves,
of this opportuhity would 1110 e
1 than double the income'ef th roads
lin that route,.'ith. but a small com -,
pafatier'inef tse in the ilimuing
expenses. It is a .well settled fact. in
railroading, -that low rates of - travel
and1 freight bitild uup mid c1tich a
company ; while high rates iilw~ays
tend toward bankruptcy. This has
been demlonstrated in England, with
the cheap t-ains for wo):kuigzn'mn,
where the rates ar(! less than half a
cent per mile ; but the profits are
larger than on the more aristcratic
and~ more expensive trins, over th~e
same roads.
STREET CAlS.
-Another advatnt- it wh"ich Phlilat
delphia - has over other cities is her
system of street cars. At presentt,
many of the lines terminate at the
Exhibition gr~ounds, while tllse
running across these lines all issue
exchange tickets, so that at perfect
stranger can find his way as easily as
in old resident. Add to this the
excellent police systemn being un
army pf polite guide-posts, rea'ly to
direct one whih route. to go, and
there is nothing lacking in the
adapt bility of Philadelphia for the
Sehibition.-ground of bhe gre-itest
gatheiug of the kind that the world
has eover seen. C. E. C.
