was named as one of the delegates.
[From the Reporter.]
Though the meeting was not as full a one as
waa anticipated, in consequence, doubtless, of
the pressing demand for every farmer to be at
home attending to bis growing crop, quite a
large and respectable gathering of the substan?
tial ^citizens of the county was beld In the
courthouse on Monday last The m- eting was
organized, on motion of Major .8. P. Hamilton.
? by calling Major James Pagan to the chair, and
requesting C. S. Brice, Esq., to act as secre?
tary. The chairman, in a clear and forcible
way*fcsplained that the object of the meeting
was to inaugurate measures to ? secure the co?
operation of all honest men in the effort to
shake off the knaves who are running the
State Government solely for the Bake of plun?
der, and to restore the administration of the
government to honest and capable hands, irre?
spective of color or past party associations.
He said that lt was the dury of every respecta?
ble man to come ont squarely and work for an
honest government; that nil men white and
black, rich and poor, are equally interested in
the movement to reduce t.he expenditures of
- the government.
l Colonel W. A. Walker moved that a commit
\ tee of eight be appointed to nominate dele
I gates to the convention to be holden in Co
? lumbla on the 15th instant. The motion was
Major S. P. Hamilton offered the following
preamble and resolutions, and urged their
adoption in a speech of considerable length,
.eplete with good seoce and convincing argu?
Whereas, By the passage of the Fifteenth
amendment to the Constitution of the United
I tates, equal rights, both civil and political,
lave been granted to ali citizens of the United
Slates, and in every State of the Union the
raid Fifteenth constitutional amendment has
Recome the law of the land; therefore, be lt
Resolved, That we recognize the said consti?
tutional amendment as the law of the land,
and that we the citizens of Chester County
wlU truly and in good faith carry out the prin
?clples therein contained.
Resolved, That the resolutions heretofore
passed by the Press Conference at Columbia
are hereby approved and accepted not only as
the announcement of proper principles, but
also as the first trumpet note to rouse the
whole people for the impending overthrow of |
the enemies of law. and order, truth, virtue
and common honesty.
In dtansBing the. resolutions, Major Hamil?
ton first depicted in forcible words the great
changes the revolution had brought about, and
appealed to the white men present to recog?
nize these changes,and to accord to the colored
man cheerfully, sincerely and truthfully, all
the civil and political rights that the law now
elves him. He met andi exposed the falsity of j
the charge made by the enemies of Reform,
that the new movement ls nothing but the
Democratic party under a thin disguise. The
Democratic party in South Carolina, he said,
was dead; that the main question of differ?
ence between the Republican and Democratic
parties had been the status of the colored man;
and now that the deform- party accepted in
good faith the Fifteenth amendment as the
law of the land, there was really~**^ilfference
between the platform of that party and that
>f the Republican party. He forcibly ap?
paled to the colored men to assist In wresting
ie State government from the bania of j
ie plundering carpet-baggers ; that it was
trough their instrumentality that the govern
lent had gotten Into such hands; and that
ley owed lt to the welfare of the State to use j
jeir power und restore the administration of
ilrs to honest hf^d>. He warned them to
sware of the mean white men who are going
[to thc league lor the sole purpose of securing
ices for themselves, and said it was good
ie for honest colored men to know that they
ire in the wrong f*ace and come out ot lt,
ten such bad specimens of white men were
lng In among them. He?MXt proceeded to
>w up the Land Commission as one of the
j?test swindles of the age, and stated one
[tance in which a gentleman of York had
his land to Leslie at*4 oeracre, and after
ds getting a glimpse at his books saw
?re that immaculate thief had entered it as
'based at $6 per acre. The recently dlscov
J $00,000 swindle of N. G. Parker, State
isotlr, was ateo ventilated.
The preamble and resolutions were submit?
ted to the meeting and unanimously adopted,.
save by one vote.
E. C. McLure offered the following resolu
Resolved, That the delegates appointed to
attend the Convention at Columbia, be author?
ized to nil any vacancies that may occur in its
number, by the appointment of other dele?
Which was adopted, and the meeting then
At the public meeting held in Edgefield to
nominate delegates to the June Convention,
eight colored and seven white delegates were
appointed. The Advertiser says:
The speeches made by General Butler, Ma?
jor Gary, Major Bacon and Mr. Youmans, on
this occasion, were, une and all, able, honest
and truthful, and all in the same strain and
to the same end, viz: That of opening the eyes
of the negroes to their true interests, to the
selfishness, knavery and dissimulation of the
great mass of the Radical party of the State,
and to the honesty and good Intentions of the
Reform party. General Gary, who has taken
no part in politics since the war, appeared
only after repeated calls from the meeting.
He'declared himself an uncompromising old
school Democrat, totally opposed to acquies?
cing, only so far as we are absolutely obliged,
in either the Thirteenth. Fourteenth or Fif?
teenth amendments, totally opposed to negro
suffrage, and willing to wait and suffer undi
dooms-day rather than swerve from the pure
doctrines of the Democratic party.
Mr. P. A. Eichelberger, the leading Radical
of this section, was present at the meeting-or J
rather hanging upon its outskirts-and was
called upon loudly for his views, with many
assurances previously given, that respect, tol?
eration and ialr-piay should bethe order of the
day. Mr. Eichelberger, however, did not re?
spond. He and certain of his agents and myr?
midons were working like beavers in the after
part of the day, to undo the work of the morn?
And now Edgefield, having put herself |
among the ranks of those moving for aJReforrn
in the government, can only hope that the
wise action of the Convention- wUl be produc?
tive of such Reform.

the preamble of the Schema brought to a close.
They complain that fifty members who had

NEW YOKK, June 6.
The promoters of the forthcoming musical
festival have lately been Involved In a little
tempest raised by the opposion clans of Parepa
and Kellogg. Both of these ladles wished to
be at the head of the list of artists; both wish?
ed to have the most prominent places on the
programmes, and both wished to have the
choicest morceaux of music. At one time it
seemed quite Impossible to reconcile the con?
tending factions, and the result was that Miss
Kellogg's name was on one day omitted from
the programmes, and great was the wrath ot
the Kelloggites. "The Irate party was, how?
ever, appeased. Miss Kellogg was finally se?
cured, and ls announced to sing selections
*from "Trovatore," on the opening day of the
festival. A greater prominence ls, however,
given to thc name ol Parepa. who will try the
solos in the great oratorios. AU prima donnas
are very exacting, and the management lias to
use great diplomacy. There are also half a
dozen Jovial conductors to be reconciled, each
one thinking that he alone of all others is the
man for the occasion. It ls expected that this
week thc New York singing societies will take
hold of the matter more vigorously than they
have done hitherto. Three rehearsals are to
be held at Steinway Hall this week, at which
the oratorios will he practiced. The managers
have already gone to great expense, the means
being furnished by a Business firm down town.
The advertising bills are prodigious, that of
the Herald sometimes amounting to $250 a day.
Several of the artists will have to be paid In
advance. There is already so much money in?
vested in thc enterprise, that it will have to be
carried throush, and every day gives increased
assurance of its real attractiveness anti merit.
The sale of tickets has commenced, and the
prices have been put as low as can be expect?
ed-a dollar to a dollar and a half for admission
to each concert, without a seat.
The churches, with the first touches of warm
weather, are preparing for the usual summer

A well known attach? of one of our theatres
took a benefit on Saturday night. The play was
.a good one and thc weather was favorable, but
the audience was amazingly slim. "You might
have tired a cannon In the parquet," exclaimed
the disgusted beneficiary, the next day, "and
you couldn't hit any one except the conductor
of the orchestra." In fact, the attendance at
the theatres generally is rapidly falling off,
owing to the warm weather.
Sunday evening amusements, which ten years
ago would have been decraed most sacrilegi?

theatre-the so-culled "Grand Opera House"
was crowded to.excess on the occasion of a
repetition as a concert of the music performed
at the recent reception of the Ninth Regiment
at the Academy. Several members of the reg?
ular company of the theatre sang solos, and
Mox Maretze'k conducted a chorus of 125 pcr
forme s, who interpreted, instrumentally,-a va?
riety di operatic selections. No pretence ol
"sacred music" was assumed to fit tue concert

Tlie French papers publish a set of canons
attached to the Schema of Infallibility, now

read as follows:

A Shooting at Greenville.
The Enterprise says : "On Sunday evening
last, aboui 4 o'clock, whilst some colored boys
were congregated near the upper bridge, one
of them, isaac Cannon, aged about 13 years,
having a pistol about him, accidentally, it ls
thought, shot Harvey Moore, about 16 years
old. The ball entered the right breast, and
may prove fatal; The former has been com?
mitted to Jail."
Killed by Lightning.
The Yorkville Enquirer Bays : "We learn
that during the storm of last Friday afternoon,
Hiram Hutchinson, second son or Mr. A. E.
Hutchinson, ofiiock Hill, was struck by light?
ning and instantly killed, wbllevtandlng in the
door of the family residence. The deceased was
a youth of about sixteen years, and of very es?
timable character. It ls a remarkable coinci?
dence that his maternal grandfather was also
killed by lightning."
The Cheraw Reporter soys: "On Sunday last
one Benjamin Michael, an attache ol the whang
doodle's office, went to Harmony Church,
where religious worship was being held, and
seized the horse of Mr. W. W. Jordan on a tax
execution In his hands. By the remonstrance
of several parlies he was Induced lo forego his
purpose and release Ihe horse. Has it come
to this, that our people can't be allowed to
worship God, without having their services
broken In upon by the agents of thc thieves
and scoundrels who are now lording lt over
us ? If so, let us know it"
^s. Heavy Loss by Fire,
Tmr Edgefleld Advertiser says that Messrs.
Adams & i. heatham's steam saw mill, situated
immediate on the line of the Columbia and
Augusta Railroad, some two miles below Pine
House depot, was consumed by fire on Friday
night lost, together, with, some forty thousand
feet of lumber. We are informed that they
will be able to save a portion of the machinery,
but that their loss will well-nigh reach $1500.
I hey have gone promptly and vigorously to

and actually commenced rebuilding, with the
hope of having their mill in running order
within the next three weeBrs. Mr. Adams ls of
the opinion that the Ure was the result of acci?
dent, and not the work of the incendiary.

Thc Courier says: "This section has been
visited by almost constant rains for two weeks.
Bul little work has been done. Grass and
weeds are springing up luxuriantly. Hail has
also fallon IH some localities. Small grain has
been seriously injured by being blown down."
The Enquirer says: "There have been sever?
al falls of rain in various parts of this county
during thc week past, the most general ol
which was on Friday afternoon. This was ac?
companied with hall, which In some places was
severe, but as a general thing did no injury.
The copious rains of the last two weeks nave

and colton look very promising."

of rain since our last issue. From the best
sources we learn that the crops promise well.

bountiful crop will bc realized in Darlington

fell in ibis vicinity last Thursday afternoon,
and several trues were uprooted by the ac?

venience by Hie shower bath they received
under thc pavilion, and the damage to dresses
and other feminine trapping must have
amounted to hundreds of dollars. In thc eve?
ning a threatening cloud appeared, and 'Old
John Robinson's men," giving up the idea of

tents and prepared lo take a 'new departure.';'
Thc Intclligeuccr says: "During the past
week heavy rains have vlslted^everal sections
of this county, damaging the growing crops.
A considerable hail storm north of this place,
on Friday night had a disastrous effect across
a narrow belt of country. The farmers are
generally engaged this week In harvesting
wheat and oats. The wheat is considered fine,
and oats have improved wonderfully since the
rains set In. It is a busy time with the farm?
ers, as their hands are greatly needed In thc'
corn and cotton fields, while the grain crops
are being harvested."
The Walhalla Courier regrets to learn that,
on the 3d instant, a deslructive hailstorm
visited that portion ol Pickens County north
ol' the Courthouse. The crops on the planta?
tions of James E., John, and Mrs. Hugood,
and James Griffin were destroyed. Others in
ihe neighborhood also suffered severely On
the places above named, outhouses, fences,
fruit trees, Ac, were blown down. Where
wheat, cotton, rye, ic, were growing, corn
has been planted. Hail-stones fell as lame as

In Louisiana :
In the Parishes of St. Charles and Plaque

ing, don't drink whiskey or any intoxicating
thing, whether under the name of Bitters or other?
wise. Such articles Rive Just as much strength
to your weary body and mind us the whip gives
to the jaded horse, and no more. Alcoholic stim?
ulants are Injurious to nerve health, and are al?
ways foUowed by depressing reaction.

the Interest of any faction; but long and extend?

the bottle for rest or recuperation, will find, as he
keeps at lt, that he ls kindling a fire In his bones
which will consume like the flames of perdition.
Turn from lt. Take a tonic that will refresh and
not destroy. DODD'S NERVINE ls for sale by all
