COUNT** EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE.
There will be a meeting of the Execu
tive Committee of the Doraocratic parly
of Anderson County in tho Court House
in Anderson, on Saturday the 23rd inst.,
at ll o'clock a. m., for the purpose of
tabulating and publishing the result of
tho primary election. A full and prompt
attendance ia desirable.
E. B. MunBAY,
There bas been some enquiry as to tho
manner of appointing the managers of
tho primary election. By referring to
the rules for governing tho primary elec
tion it will be seen that the Executive
Committee of each Club appoints the
managers for tho election in such Club.
Our people had better look after live
questions in electing their Representa
tivo. It is always easier to criticise what
others have done than to orig?nalo new
measures, and yet tho 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 Slate debt
soon matures. We aro now paying an
interest of six per cent, upon our debt
which requires $468,000 per year. This
debt should and can bo refunded on long
time at 3} per cent., which would save nt
least $200,000 per annum and give to
our people a reduction of nt least one
and a half mills taxes. Our assessment
laws should be simplified and improved.
Our road system should he remodeled.
Our County prisoners under sentence for
crime, should be put to work upon roads
and street?. Our penitentiary convicts
ahould bo employed to develope the ma
terial resources of the State, instead of
competing with honest labor to onricb
a few private persons. These and kin
dred subjects aro the ones our people had
better get the views of candidates for the
Legislature upon. It is not profitable to
discuss Issues which aro Irrevocably
TBK BOOK MULLS QUESTIONS.
Dr. Cook's article upon the University
and tho Canal, replying to the INTELLI
GENCER, presents no arguments which
have not already been presented with at
least as much force by the Greenville
Neto? aud 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 falls to show us how it is
so. This State has had a College or Univer
sity ever since 1805. Is 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, tho 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, whoso
climate is not favorable, and whose
material progress has but recently begun.
To close the University on tho piea of
the poverty of the Stat? would damage
South Carolina more than our friends
imagino, It would'.proclaim to the world
a stagnation here that would be ruinous.
The University Is a part of. the education
al system' of tho State, and ls 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 Spacial class. All med cannot
avail themselves of the'common echo ola,
but it would not do on that account to
close th? sohoola. Tho' University is as
much tho property of the Slate as the
co m ta on schools, and every hoy, from the
humblest to the highest, ls alike entitled
to partic?pate in ita ben efl to. It ia more
to tho advantage of boys of moderate or
limited means than (boas who are weal*
thy. Tba wealthy maa caa send bis
eons to any College in the world that he
may chose, but there are many boya who
will got fina educations - at tho Booth
Carolina University, at an expensa of
two or three hundred dollars per year,
whoi?gpld not afford to pay five or lix
hundred dollars afc the Uni varsity of
Virginia, or tome other first cJn&a instl
tdtlon. This ia a great stimulus to th?
poofboyaof tho State.Thero are hun*
dreda cf them who will work'their way
through this * University, and 'prove
themselves th? peera of any men, who
woolf! not fee', able to'work through one
of the expensive institutions outside of
?$|fi^toV Ono of tho reason? wo' favor
udTtiniveraity is, that it tend? to bring
higher -education within'fha reach pf all
ciaates of our citrus. #e do aol.want
to see a state of things* in South. Carolin*
which; will ?nable? the rich man's sous IO
.iiate at Borne University, bui stop
a poor, boy when h& JeaYis ?fc? com?
on school. Wia do'.uoi-iexpccs --rWery
boy to hs *; University graduate, hut we
do ex?sct Ibis very University of the"
Stato to break down, in a largo measure,
tho advantages which one class of citi
sens would have over auolher."Tbe
poorest people, and men of limited
means, aro not tho ones to complain of
the University, It is destined to dignify
and elevate their station in life, for it
will frequently seud out bright men with
trained minda from tbeso classes who
will [compete successfully with tho sons
of rich men in all the walks of life. It
may not satisfy Ur. Cook for us lo say
that thc Uuiveroity ia here to stay, hut
he will live long enough, we hope, to see
that the assertion is true. Auderaon
may waate her strength in fighting it if
?he choses, but il is a lost battle before it
is begun. There will be a crushing
majority ia favor of tho University, and
it will have tho life, and progress, and
intelligence of the Stato as i ts supporte ra.
Thoreforo, we repeat that tho men who
now set themselves up to fight tho Uni
versity will lose all chance of establishing
an influence io the legislature, for he
will be looked upon as lackiug in pro
gress, if not as a demagogue. Tht Uni
versity is here, to ?tay, and it will be a waste
of injluenee, of breath, of time and of
money for any man to attempt to dote it.
Dr. Cook may be w illing to atake every
thing on this light, but tho people of
Anderson want live, progressive and in
fluential men in the Legislature to grap
ple with real issues and questions of
momentous consequence to tho State
which will, from time to time, arise. It
will be worse than folly to leave out any
good man because he may bo in favor of
the University-auch folly aa ibo people
of Anderson are never guilty of com
TI1K CONGRESSIONAL CONVENTION.
Tbo Cou vont ion of tbe Democratic
Party in Ibo Third Congressional Dis
trict, which mot In Seneca City on tho
nix th iuBt., concluded its session on last
Thursday, after having taken one hun
dred and ten viva voce ballots and thir
teen caucus ballots, making in all 123
ballots. Col. D. Wyatt Aiken was re
nominated ou this ballot by a volo of 28
to 14 for Col. George Johnstone, of
Newberry. Tho vote was made up as
follow! : For Col. Aiken-Abbeville 12,
Anderson 9, Picketts G and Ocouee 1.
For Col. Johnstone-Newberry 8, Oco
neo o and Anderson 1.
Mr. P. K. MuCully, the ouly Ander
son delegate who voted for Col. John
atone, aeconded the motion to make tho
nomination unanimous. Tbo candidates
were all present in Seneca during tho
Convention, Measrs. Aiken, Johnstone
and Bowen arriving tboro on Tuesday
night, and Mr. Murray on Wednesday
morning. Tbe two last named gentle
men were telegraphed for by their friends.
The Convention was hnrmonioua through
out, and the result was accepted in a
good spirit by tho candidatos and their
friends. The result in doubtless highly
gratifying to Col. Aiken and h ia friends,
as it is a high compliment to his effi
ciency and popularity, this being his fifth
term, which will cover a period of ten
years service in Congress. The people
of Anderson County have always liked
Col. Aiken, though upon aomo things
they do not agree with bim. The An
derson delegation in tbo Convention
made a splendid fight for Mr. Murray,
and secured for him at one time the next
highest vote to Col. Aiken's, lacking
only six votes of nominatiug him.
When Mr. Murray's vote fell back his
name was withdrawn and the vote of
Anderson Bellied the contest aa stated
above. There will be no sulking in
Anderson over the result, but Col. Aiken
will receive the same warm and enthusi
astic support which has always been
accorded him in this County. He will
be elected by an overwhelming majority,
even if he uhould have opposition, which
we do not now autioip"le.
In the discussion of the South Caroli
na University we were mistaken lu treat
ing tho $11,000 for the Agricultural
College as a psrt of the $15,000 appro
priated to the University. It it 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 the
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, aud therefore make the cor
rection before the primary election. The
principle, however, is the Bame. If a
University is to.be conducted at all, we
ought to have an officiant one, and the
money appropriated to it ia not more
than is needed and beneficial to the
EDITOR INTELLIGENCER : Rock Mills
has carefully examined your, comments
on her resolutions on Higher Education
and the Colombia Canal. You must
excuse us when we say you hare failed
altogether to satisfy us. It does not
satisfy us for you to say, "If a man
wanta to lose ali chance of establishing
an influence in the Legislature, he cannot
do so easier than by voting against the
University." And again: "Whether our
people favor lt or hot, the University ls
here to stay," Ac,
At far as Rock Mills is cou corned, she
desires no influential member in the
Legislature if lt requires a surrender of
his principles and thatof his constituents
to obtain lt, or any act upon his part
that will work Injustice to oar people.
We could bot despise and bat? such a

Mr. President, Gentlemen of (lie Con
vent ion find my Fellow Citizens : Once
more these people speaking through you
as their repreaentatives, have entrusted
to my keeping the Congressional interests
of the Third District of South Carolina.
To say that I thank: you for this honor is
hut a meagre method of expressing tho
gratitude that this moment pervade? my
bosom. I have been true to you in ibo
performance of the duties you have
imposed upon me in tho 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 parlies, and
that I have been charged with entertain

My friend*, this la a slander, for no mun

a constituency than I. Hut, sir, when

I have, too, been accused of opposition
to the National Democracy, and been
charged with b'-ing 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. Hut,
sir, I have said, and do not deny saying,
that if thc South in Congress had held
aloof and stood as a unit she might have
shaped Federal legialatiou, and this i
advocated, not iu 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, 1 need not detain the
Convention longer. This light is ended,
aud 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

dence. The past speaks for itself. I
only ask you to await the future in
patience. (Loud and continued applause

Condition of Crops in South Carolina.
The reports of County correspondents
to the State Department of Agriculture,
August 1st, show a decline in the condi
tion of cotton from the previous month.
DuriDg the early part of July the raine
were very heavy, and this following the
excessive wet weather of June, caused
the plant to be very tender and succulent.
After the first week in July the weather
was bot, dry and sultry, aud the sudden
change caused the 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 the
anxiety of tho farmers to some extent,
The plant was sustained mostly by sur
face roots and in order to remove thc
grass it was necessary to plough close tc
the plant, and in some caaea the surface
roots were destroyed. The growth ol
the plant was consequently checked and
some damage necessarily done. Since il
has been freed of grass and has had thc
benefit of the rains in the latter part ol
the month, it is said to be taking on s
better and more vigorous growth, with
prospects for an average crop brighten
ing. In the upper part of tbe State the
filant is small, and iu the middle and
ewer section? it is about an average
site, but, except in a few localities, it is
not fruiting as well as usual at this sea
son. Three correspondents in the lowei
part of the State mention the appearance
of the caterpillar ; but one of th em, wbc
has not seen the worm, doubts if it is thc
genuine cotton caterpillar. The condi
tion is reported in Upper Carolina at 75.
Middle Carolina at 85, Lo wer Carolins
at 92-an average for the State of 84
against 79 for the same period lust year
The July report Bhowed 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 fiords too late to replant
a*sd fields that on the first of June
promised an abundant yield were aban
doned. The seasons have been remarks
bly favorable for early planted upland
corn, and it is estimated that it will give
above an average yield. Late planted
and that plantea on oat stubble suffered
severely from excessive rains during
June and July and the drought tbat fol
lowed, and was reported below an aver
age on the 1st of August. The general
condition for the whole crop ls reported :
For Northern Carolina, 78; Middle
Carolina, 91 ; Lower Carolina, 98--ac
average for the State of 87 against 75 foi
the same ti mo. last year.
