County Executive committee.
Th ere will be a meeting of the Execu?
tive Committee of the Democratic party
of Anderson County in the Court House
in Anderson, on Saturday the 23rd inat.,
at U o'clock a. nv, for the purpose of
tabulating and publishing tbe result of
the primary election. A full and prompt
attendance is desirable.
E. B. MURRAY,
There has been some enquiry as to the
manner of appointing the managers of
the primary election. By referring to
the rules for governing the primary elec?
tion it will be seen that the Executive
Committee of each Club appoints the
managers for the election in such Club.
Our people had better look after live
questions in electing their Representa?
tive. It is' always' easier to criticise.what
others have done than to originate new
measures, and yet the Legislator who can
only find fault without proposing any*
thing new for the relief of the people is
a tremendous failure. This is pre-emi?
nently true at this time. Our State debt
soon matures. We are now paying an
interest of six per cent upon our debt
' which [requires $468,000 per y ear. This
debt should add can be refunded on long
time at 3 J per cent., which would save at
least $200,000 per annum ' and give to
our. people a.reduction of at least one
and a half mills taxes. Our assessment
laws should be simplified and improved.
Our road system.should be remodeled.
Our County prisoners under sentence for
crime, should be put to work upon roads
and streets. Our penitentiary convicts
should be employed to develops the ma?
terial resources of the State, instead of
competing with honest labor to enrich
a few private persons. These and kin?
dred subjects are the ones our people bad
better get the views of candidates for the
Legislature upon. It is not profitable to
discuss issues which are irrevocably
settled. ^ .
THE BOCK JdZLES QUESTIONS.
Dr. Cook's article upon the University
and the Canal, replying to the Intelli?
gencer,,'presents, no arguments, which
have not already been presented with at
least as much force by the Greenville
News and other. papers which oppose
these institutions.. There is a great deal
of assertion- about his article, and very
little argument. ' He begins with assum?
ing that the appropriation is contrary to
principle, but fails to show us how it is
. so. This State has had a Col lege or Univer?
sity ever since 1805. Li it contrary to
principle for us to keep up what has
been handed down to us by the greatest
men the State has ever produced ? Not
only this, but every other State in this
Union, has its University, except, we
believe, the State of Florida. Is it con?
trary to.principle for South.Carolina- to
keep her head up with the other States
of the American Union. We think the
principle of a State University is well
established in South Carolina, and in all
the. other States, except Florida, whose
climate is not favorable, and whose
material progress has but recently begun.
To close the University on the plea of
the poverty of the State would damage
South Carolina more than our friends
imagine. It would proclaim to the world
a stagnation here that would be ruinous.
The University is a part of the education?
al system of the State, and is open for
all who wish to avail themselves of it.
The fact that all men cannot send their
sons to it does not render it the property
of any special class. All men cannot
avail themselves of the common schools,
but it would not do on that account to
close the schools. The9 University is as
much the property of the Slate as the
common schools, and every boy, from the
humblest to the highest, is alike entitled
to participate in its benefits. It is more
to tbe advantage of boys of moderate or
limited means than those who are weal?
thy. The wealthy man can send his
sons to any College in the world that he
may chose, but there are many boys who
will, get fine educations at the South
Carolina University, at an expense of
two or three hundred dollars per year,
whor.cojild not afford to pay five or six
hundred dollars at the University of
Virginia, or some other first class insti?
tution. This is a great stimulus to the
poor- boys of the State. There are hun?
dreds of them who will work their way
through this University, and prove
themselves the peers of any men, who
would not feel able to work through one
of the expensive institutions outside of
<?t|3^3jtate. One of the reasons we favor
this University is, that it tends to bring
higher education within tbe reach of all
classes of our citizens. We do not want
to see a state of things in South Carolina
which will enable tbe rich man's sous to
graduate at some University, but stop
the poor boy when he leaves the com?
mon school. We do not expect every
boy to be a University graduate, but we
do expect this very University of the
I State to break down, in a large measure,
j the advantages which one class of citi
I zena would have over another.* Tbe
I poorest people, and men of limited
I means, are not the ones to complain of
j the University* It is destined to dignify
land elevate their station in life, fcr it
I will frequently send out bright men with
I trained minds from these classes who
I will fcompete successfully with the sons
I of rich men in all the walks of life. It
j may not satisfy Dr. Cook for us to say
j that the University is here to stay, but
I be will live long enough, we hope, to see
I that the assertion is true. Anderson
I may waste her strength in fighting it if
j she choses, but it is a lost battle before it
j is begun. There will be a crushing
j majority in favor of the University, and
I it will have the life, and progress, and
j intelligence of the State as its supporters.
I Therefore, we repeat that the men who
j now set themselves up to fight the Uni
I versity will lose all chance of establishing
I an influence ic tbe Legislature, for he
I will be looked upon as lacking in pro
j gress, if not as a demagogue. The Uni
I versity ? here to stay, and it will be a waste
J of influence, of breath, of time and of
I money for any man to attempt to close it.
j Dr. Cook may be willing to stake every?
thing on this'fight, but tee people of
I Anderson want live, progressive and in
I fluectial men in the Legislature to grap
I pie with real issues and questions of
momentous consequence to tbe State
I which will, from time to time, arise. It
I will be worse thao folly to leave out any
j good man because he may be in favor of
j the University?such folly as the people
j of Anderson are never guilty of com
j THE CONGRESSIONAL CONVENTION.
j The Convention of tbe Democratic
J Party in fbe Third Congressional Dis
I trict, which met in Seneca City on the
I sixth inst., concluded its session on last
I Thursday, after having taken one hun?
dred and ten viva voce ballots and thir- j
j teen caucus ballots, making in all 123
I ballots. Col. D. Wyatt Aiken was re
I nominated on this ballot by a vote of 28
I to 14 for Col. George Jobnstone, of
j Newberry. The vote was made up as
I follows: For Col. Aiken?Abbeville 12,
I Anderson 9, Pickens 6 and Oconee 1.
j For Col. Johnetone?Newberry 8, Oco
I nee 5 and Anderson 1.
Mr. P. K. McCully, the only Ander
|8on delegate who voted for Col. John
I atone, seconded the motion to make the
j nomination unanimous. The candidates
I were all present ic Seneca during the
j Convention, Messrs. Aikeo, Johnstone
land Bowen arriving there on Tuesday
I night, and Mr. Murray on Wednesday
j morning. The two last named gentle
I men were telegraphed for by their friends.
I The Convention was harmonious through
I out, and the result was accepted in a
j good spirit by the candidates and their
I friends. The result is doubtless highly
I gratifying to Col. Aiken and his friends,
I as it is a high. compliment to bis effi?
ciency and popularity, this being his fifth
j term, which will cover a period of ten
I years service in Congress. The people
of Anderson County have always liked
Col. Aiken, though upon some things
I they do not agree with him. The An
j derson delegation in tbe Convention
j made a splendid fight for Mr. Murray,
and secured for him at one time the oext
I highest vote to Col. Aiken's, lacking
(only six votes of nominating him.
I When Mr. Murray's vote fell back his
I name was withdrawn and the vote of
I Anderson settled the contest as stated
I above. There will be no sulking in
I Andereon over the result, but Col. Aiken
I will receive the same warm and enthusi
I astic .support which has always been
I accorded him in this County. He will
J be elected by an overwhelming majority,
I even if he should have opposition, which
I we do not now anticipate.
I . In the discussion of the South Caroli?
na University we were mistaken in treat?
ing the $11,000 for the Agricultural
College as a part of the $15,000 appro?
priated to the University. It is in ad?
dition to that sum. The eleven thousand
dollars is a part of the interest on tbe
State debt, and is paid directly to tbe
University without an appropriation. It
does not appear in the appropriation bill,
and therefore we overlooked it in our
previous article. We are anxious that
these questions shall be settled upon their
true merits, and therefore make the cor?
rection before the primary election. The
principle, however, is the same. If a
University is to^be conducted at all, we
ought to have an efficient one, and the
money appropriated to it is not more
than is needed acd beneficial to the
Editor Intelligencer : Rock Mills
has carefully examined your comments
oc her resolutions on Higher Education
and tbe Columbia Canal. You must
excuse ua when we say you have failed
altogether to satisfy us. It does not
satisfy ua for you to say, "If a man
wants to lose all chance of establishing
an influence in the Legislature, he cannot
do so easier than by voting against tbe
University." And again: "Whether our
people favor it or uot, the University is
here to stay," &c.
As far as Rock Mills is concerned, she
desires no influential member in tbe
Legislature if it requires a surrender of
hia principles and tbatof his constituents
to obtain it, or any act upon his part
that will work injustice to our people.
We could but despise and hate such a
Rock Mills took no position on this
subject and that of the Canal except to
ask the views of tbe Legislative candi?
dates upon these questions. She sought
information from no other source.
Is it right to appropriate any portion
of the hard earnings of the people to
support high education ?
Before you can convince us of this
you must sbow us wherein it is right that
one man's child shall receive over three
hundred dollars of public money, and
the rest of ub leas than three dollars for
our children. If Democratic principles
means equal and just laws to all, then,
you must show us the equality and jus?
tice of taking over $300.00 to educate one
man's child and less than $3.00 to educate
another man's child.
If it be true that Republican or Dem?
ocratic government is based alone upon 1
the intelligence of the masses, we must
then be shown how it is that the educa?
tion of two boys at an enormous expense,
to the neglect of the rest, will give or
can give a basis of intelligence upon
which to rest our government.
As to the Columbia Canal we believe
not only our Club, but all the rest as
well, are satisfied that it is. a great monu?
ment of folly that cannot now or hereafter
be justified by the intelligent voters of
J. T. Cook.

the regular order of business and the

Col. Aiken, who spoke as follows:
Mr. President, Gentlemen of (he Con?
vention and my Fellow Citizens: Ouce
more these people speaking through you
as their representatives, have entrusted
to my keeping the Congressional interests
of the Third District of South Carolina.
To say that I thank you for this houor is
but a meagre method of expressing tbe
gratitude that this moment pervades my
bosom. T have been true to you in the
performance of the duties you have
imposed upon me in the past. Never
fear, my countrymen, that I will disap?
point you in the future. I know, my
fellow-citizens, that my course has been
severely criticised by some parties, and
that I have been charged with entertain?
ing views opposed to popular education.
My friends, this is a slander, for no man
iu the State is more in favor of educating
a constituency than I. But, sir, when
the aid to education conies through the
channel of a Bepublican caucus, I, as a
Democrat, am bound to refuse-its accep?
I have, too, been accused of opposition
to the National Democracy, and been
charged with being a regular "party
smasher." Sir, I yield to no man in my
devotion to party. I will never consent
to have my party fealty questioned. But,
sir, I have said, and do not deny saying,
that if the South in Congress had held
aloof and stood as a unit sbe might have
shaped Federal legislation, ana this I
advocated, not in antagonism to the
National Democracy, but because I
loved the South and my dear old State
better than I did the Democracy of
Yankeeland. [Loud applause and
Mr. President, I need not detain the
Convention longer. This fight is ended,
and it has been fought upon principle
and with honesty. Congressional honors
have again been confided to me. My
every thought as a public man shall be
for those who have imposed the confi?
dence. Tbe past speaks for itself. I
only ask you to await the future in
patience. [Loud and contiuued applause
Mr. Murray was called for, and re
sponded in a graceful tribute to his

Condition of Crops in South Carolina.
The reports of County correspondents
to the State Department of Agriculture,
August 1st, show a decline in tbe condi?
tion of cotton from tbe previous month.
During the early part of" July the rains
were very heavy, and this following tbe
excessive wet weather of June, caused
the plant to be very tender and succulent.
After the first week in July the weather
w.ia hot, dry and sultry, aud the sudden
change caused tbe plant to cast fruit and
leaves, and shedding is reported very
generally in all parts of the State.
Great danger to the crop was apprehen?
ded until near the close of the month,
when seasonable showers relieved tbe
anxiety of tbe farmers to some extent.
The plant was sustained mostly by sur?
face roots and in order to remove the
grass it was necessary to plough closa to
tbe plant, and in some cases the surface
rcots were destroyed. The growth of
the plant was consequently checked and
some damage necessarily done. Since it
has been freed of gross and has had the
benefit of tbe rains in tbe latter part of
the month, it is said to be taking on a
better and more vigorous growth, with
prospects for an average crop brighten?
ing. In the upper part of tbe State the
plant is small, and in the middle and
lower sections it is about an average
size, but, except in a few localities, it is
not fruiting as well as usual at this sea?
son. Three correspondents in tbe lower
part of the State mention the appearance
of the caterpillar; but one of them, who
has not Been the worm, doubts if it is tbe
genuine cotton caterpillar. The condi?
tion is reported in Upper Carolina at 75.
Middle Carolina at 85, Lower Carolina
at 92?an average for the State of 84
against 79 for tbe same period last year.
The July report showed the probable
damage to corn on river and creek bot?
toms, and it is confirmed by the later re?
ports. In many places the crops were
destroyed by the floods too late to replant,
and fields that on the first of June
promised an abundant yield were aban?
doned. The seasons have been remarka?
bly favorable for early plauted upland
corn, and it is estimated that it will give
above an average yield. Late planted
and that planted on oat stubble suffered
severely from excessive rains during
June and July and the drought that fol?
lowed, and was reported below an aver?
age on the 1st of August. The general
condition for the whole crop is reported:
For Northern Carolina, 73; Middle
Carolina, 91; Lower Carolina, 98?an
average for the State of S7 against 75 for
the same time last year.

tion as to which is the oldest railway in
