Into each by-path. I arrived just in time to
stop three wretched Turcos, mounted on artil?
lery horses, as they were entering an old
quarry with the hope of making a shortcut
from the field. Our artillery must have been
roughly used, so many caissons pass
along the road without guns. Bat here
come one or two regiments of the line,
quite firm, tolerably complete in numbers, rifle
on shoulder and knapsack on back. Behind
them Marshal McMahon, calm, dignified, al?
most smiling, and fresh as a rose. I salute
him as he passes. He responds without no?
ticing me. One of his aids, M. D'Alzac, names
me. Then the old hero stops, and tells me
quite simply the story of his defeat, thus: "I
had only 35,000 men, and I found 150,000 In
front of me. We have given away before num?
bers. They have killed or wounded about 5000
men. But we shall have our revenge."
T!ie Laud Ring Once More.
"We are almost tired of exposing the cor?
rupt management of the Lane! Commission.
That Commission was established with the
avowed purpose of giving homes to the home?
less and lands to the landless. It bas done
neither. In nearly every instance the State
paid two and three prices for the lands pur
? chased, and when they are sold again the
purchasers (the poor freedmen ) have to pay
twice and thrice their value. Land which
they can buy at S3 or S5, in open market, is
soid to them by the Land Commission at S5
or $10. This is, indeed, a boon, and the
colored people appreciate it at its true

? "B. G. Yocum ls a philanthropist of Chester,
j He came from the creat Naarth, and seeks the
good will, th? votes and the money of the men
and brethren. He has been buying lands-so
runs our information from Chester County
and selling them to the State through the
Land Commission. Recently he so disposed

Reporter tell us whether these lands are worth
$5 an acre ?
"Now if Yocum paid S5 for these lands, it Is I
easy to see that his margin was the snug sum
"This Yocum is a Yankee-a nomad that
has been wandering about hobnobbing with
negroes, and settled In Chester at last, when 1
he found a negro renting a shop who was 1
willing to take him in: He ls also said to be 1
one of his Excellency's loyal constabulary '
force, and a nominee for a seat In the General 1
Assembly, as a representative of Chester 1
"From Georgetown County comes Informa- 1
tien of the sale of the Richard Dozier Place
5310 acres of land, said to be worth hardly a
dollar an acre, il' so much. This tract has
been sold to the Stae through the Land Com?
mission for $3 50 an acre. This makes $18.585
what it cost the State. At one dollar an acre
lt cost $5310, and this ls $13,275 less than the
State paid for*lt. Good margin. Did Ralney
sell lt to the State ? Was the draft for the
$13^535 drawn In favor of DeLarge ? Or, how
was lt ? And how about the titles ?
"Cannot the editor of the Georgetown Times
give us some information upon what these i
lands are worth ?" 1
This is a plain case. In the Chester pur- ;
chase the loss to the State is $2555. In the
Georgetown purchase the loss to the State j
is $13,275. The3eare, we take it, incon?
trovertible truths Who will now believe
that the State has actually obtained more
than 3200,000 in lands, at their true value,
in exchange for a payment of $700,000 ?
Wade Hampton on Reform.
The Abbeville Press and Banner prints
the following extract, from a private letter
of General Wade Hampton, addressed to a
resident of Abbeviila village. General Hamp?
"How does the Reform movement prosper ?
In the issues now presented and the candi?
dates in the field, I cannot see how any true
man in the State can hesitate as to his proper
position. Differ $3 we may about the platform
of the new party. I see no alternative but to
support its nominees. I hope and pray that
good?may come of the movement, for unless a
change ls made in the rule of the State, noth?
ing but ruin awaits us."'
The Press and Banner say3 that General
Hampton defines hi3 own position and that
of every true Carolinian "on the pending i3
"sues between Union and Reform and Re?
publicanism. - between a reformation of
"abuses and their continuance. It will be
'.'indorsed, we know, by all of our people,
"to whom the name of Hampton itseiri3
"worth a hundred arguments. 'The law and
"antidote are both before you.' "
Rev. Mr. Hicks and the Ring.
We have the announcement, from the Or?
gan of the Ring that the Rev. W. Watkm
Hicks has "tendered bis resignation" as
assistant pastor of St John's Lutheran
Church, and that he was led to this step by
the "hubbub" occasioned in his congregation
by the pol?tica] anti-Reform pyrotechnics in
the last number of his magazine. The AYA'
Ceniv.i-y has become of late so active and
zealous, if not so efficient, au ally ot' the
Scott Governnieut, that the sympathy of the
Ring mouthpiece with the editor in his
troubles is natural enough. The congrega?
tion of St. John's, which has flourished so
long under the devoted ministrations of its
revered rector, the venerable Dr. Bachman,
will doubtless quail under the awful threat
of -the destruction of the church," which
the Radical sheet foretells a3 inevitable, un?
less the "departure" of the "gifted" Hicks
be somehow averted.
COLONEL C. C. PCTFER, a Northern man,
has been nominated as the "regular" Republi?
can candidate for Cougress from the Fourth
District. This nomination was made upon
the ground that the convention held in Co?
lumbia, which nomiuateJ A. S. Wallace, was
"irregular and informal."
TUE Columbia Phviix says that Mr. M.
J I. Harman, an ex-Conf ad?rate, proposes to
establish a weekly paper in Lexington.
The Congressional Slate.
The nominations for Congress, made up
to this time, are as follows:
I FIRST DISTRICT.-Radical nominee, J. H.
Rainey, a colored man, State senator from
SECOND DISTRICT.-Radical nominees, C.
C. Bowen, the present incumbent, and R. C.
DeLarge, a colored man, member of the
State House of Representatives from Charles?
THIRD DISTRICT.-Radical nominee, R. B.
Elliott, a black man, member of the Legis?
lature and Assistant Adjutant-General of the
FOURTH DISTRICT.-Radical nominees, Col?

nominee, Colonel J. J: McKissick, of Union.
-An enthusiastic Reform meeting was held
at Dog Bluff, In Horry County, ten days ago.
-The Chesterfield Democrat urges every one
to go to work, and declares that unless a j
change be made in the State Government all
the property in the country will be swept
away "before Scott's second term expires."
-The Georgetown Times says: "We take
hope from the signs on the political horizon,
which point to the re-establishment of those
true Republican principles, so long held in
abeyance. Ere another year rolls around, we
trust the old Palmetto State will herald a vic?
tory for good government, and that the elec?
tion ot Carpenter and Butler will establish that
harmony between the races never again to be
-The Union Times says, that after Judge
Carpenter concluded his speech at Newberry,
last Monday, a president of one of the leagues,
with a number of the private members, went
up to him, snook him cordially by the hand,
and told him publicly that they Intended to
vote for him and General Butler.Where
ever Judge Carpenter has spoken he has con?
firmed the wavering, revived the hopes ot the
desponding, and won many converts to the Re?
-The Horry News says: "From every sec?
tion of tile county that we hear lrom, the Re?
form tide rolls on, Increasing In volume as it
goes. At one time there was danger that a
want ot concert of action on the part of those
who favor Reform might so divide the vote of
this county as to leave a probable chance for
the Radicals to elect to the Legislature out-and
out Radicals, or men who were so far commit?
ted to their policy, and dependent on their
votes, as not to pledge themselves to the Re?
form party. This danger is now averted."
-This suggestion Ia made by the Union
Times: "Saturday afternoon 13 generally
taken by the colored men as a time for recrea?
tion, and they select some point-usually
around a store-In each neighborhood, where
they congregate on that day. In every neigh?
borhood there are white and colored men who
can, If they will, make speeches. Let some
Dne of these be appointed, or do It voluntarily,
to speak to the colored people In each neigh?
borhood every Saturday evening. It Is not
necessary to make long speeches on such oc?
casions. Short and pithy remarks would be
more effective, and would command more at?
tention. In this way, the canvass would be
kept up warm at every point, and in a short
lime many who are now afraid to hear their
voice above its ordinary tone would become
good speakers and be our best and most suc?
cessful woikers. Let lt be tried In every
neighborhood, and we'll soon find the colored
people drawing closer and closer to their true

GREAT REDUCTION IN PRICES.
QUALITY STILL FURTHER IMPROVED.
We beg leave respectfully to call the attention
of the public to our Superior Flavoring Extracts.
As ten years have now elapsed since we flrst In?
troduced them to the notice of the American pub?
lic, we deem it unnecessary at present to enter
into a lengthy description of tuelr merits, Ac
There ls hardly a eity or town of any Dote In the
country Into which they have not wand their
way. The reason of this widespread popularity
and dally increasing demand ls owing entirely to
their peculiar excellence and intrinsic worth.
Being determined to make them the Standard Ex?
tracts of the day. we have atm further improved
their quality, and now we firmly and honestly be?
lieve that they stand without a rival. Oar Vanilla
Extract cannot be surpassed for richness and
delicacy of flavor. It ls a strictly pure and high*
ly concentrated Extract of Vanilla B?ans. In
short, we think lt the best that ts made, at least,
this IB the decision or the best Indee? in *L?> coon
try. We don't pretend to compete tu pi iee with
many or the so-called Flavoring Extracts of the
day, which are really but worthless compounds,
undeserving or the name.
For quality aud style, we dery competition.
