-Several years agu u society fur the prose?
cution ut researches und discoveries in the

formed with ihe same objeci. It has been ar?
ranged wi'ti the parent so ie ty that the Atneri
caus shall pursue their explorai lons east of
the river Jurdan, a region ol couuiry hitherto
comparatively uuexplored. It ls estimated
that $10,000 will suffice, according to the plan
of the society, to carry out this purpose for the
first year. Among the discoveries already made
have been the buried foundations of the an:
clent temple, the Moabiie stone, the pavement
of the ancient city, worn smooth by the tread
of the Jews who lived and moved in the days
of our Saviour, and the ancient bed of the
brook Kedron, whose waters flowed by the
base of Mount Moriah.
The Taxpayers' Convention, which assem-1
ble3 in Columbia -to-morrow, is^? body from |
whose deliberations ai'd wisdom of action
much of good is confidently looked for by
the property-holders of -.he State*. The per?
sonnel of the convention is such as to extort
the respect even of the men whose shame?
less schemes and organized robberies have
compelled the taxpayers to take counsel to?
gether for their own preservation. No more
forcible plea for the necessity of euch a
gathering need be urged than is contained
in the strong letter of Mr. Attorney-General
Chamberlain, printed in to-day's NEWS, and
of which we may have more lo say hereafter.
Much has been said of late in deprecation
of any partisan coloring being given to the
proceedings of the convention, and in this
we heartily concur. The body would lose
much of power and usefulness if it should*
swerve from its proper attitude as the re?
presentative of all the taxpaying citizens of
South Carolina, to become the mouthpiece
or the tool of any political party whatever.
But, on the other hand, the people expect
that it shall fasten the responsibility for ex?
isting grievances upon the men to whom it
belontrs, whether they stwve to shield them?
selves behind a party name or not If the
crime be proved, and the culprits caught,
we trust the convention will cry alot I and
-? i m r ?
Union, the Banner County.
Union County puts in a claim to the credit
of having originated the movement which
culminates t?-morrow in the assembling .of
the Taxpayers' Convention. The claim is a
just one. Nearly two years ago the people
of that gallant county, in public meeting,
passed resolutions denying and denbuncing
the authority which claimed to issue and
negotiate our State bonds, without limit or
restraint, and to tax our property unto con?
fiscation, and invited their suffering fellow
citizens in every county in the State to meet
in Columbia, in convention, and counsel to?
gether as to their condition, and suggest a
remedy. TUE NEWS, at the time, published
the resolutions, and gave its emphatic ap?
proval to the suggestion of a convention ;
but the other counts, les3 watchful of their
true interests than Union, either opposed
the movement altogether or quietly ignored
it. And so the matter was dropped. This
was in the summer of 1869. Events have
since demonstrated the good sense of the
course proposed by our Union friends ; and.
they will have the proud satisfaction to-mor?
row of beholdiug the literal, though tardy,
fulfilment of their plau, in the gathericg at
the State, capital of the real and staunch

but still hopeful and self-reliant, South Caro?
The Municipal Election.
Parson Cain, in the Missionary Recoi-d,
deprecating divisi?ns on account of party,
in view of the coming municipal election,
says : "The taxpayers and laboring men
"shouid, in this instance, be united, because
"while they occupy relatively different
" spheres of activity, they ure all equally in?
terested in having good and economical
"government; all having to bear their part
"of tiie burdens of taxation. Let every,
"class of intelligent men of, all ..parties
"unite in selecting and electing a good
"competent class ol' men to govern and
"direct thc destinies of our commercial
Tile German? Uniting.
A movement hus been set on foot in New
York to organize a German-Americun Na?
tional Association. This Idea has sprung
from the uuity with which the peace festi?
vals have been worked, and there is good
reason tu believe that the project will be
followed up in other cities. The object of
the association will be, according to a circu?
lar from the provisional committee, "to
" unite nationally German-Americans for
"the mutual advaucement of their in
Thc Ladic' Mutual Aid Association.
The anniversary of this noble organization
will be celebrated at the depository, Chal?
mers street, this afternoon, when the annual
report will be read and an address delivered
by the Rev. William H. Adams. We have
long been persuaded that the important
work performetl by this society hu3 not been
fully appreciated by our citizens, and the
reason- is, because it has been the purpose of
the association to carry ou its operations
with the utmost consideration and delicacy.
In affording aid it has called for no sucrilice
of sensitive feeling or self-respect upon the
part of any one, but provided means of em?
ployment of which our sisters might, avail
themselves without ahrinkiug or mortifica?
tion. From the very geHius of the associa?
tion, it must be unobtrusive. And yet the
members to whom il ha3 brought timely
relief eau be counted by hundreds. It has
reached cases of privation und suffering, of
which mere charity would never know. It
hus zane, with its blessed ministrations, to
discover anti alleviate trials bidden from the
gaze cveu of friendship and love ; and to
this sacred office it consecrates itself in the
future us it has done in the past. Shall it lack
our hearty sympathy and co-operation ?
The need of such un organization was, per?
haps, neve- so great as now, for never has
lhere been such destitution of the ordinary
means of subsistence. The Lathes' Mutual
Aid, us it does uol (jive, so it does not ask,
charity. Donaliotis ?ill be thankfully accept?
ed, and carefully applied to the purchase of
material for work, but the special appeal
which ihe society makes ia, that our citizens
will give orders for work through them, or
purchase t?rom the stock already made up
and for sale at the depository.' 'And the
society asks also, that our .citizens will give
their names as members, arad their cordial
co-operation and sympathy to the organiza?
Let the anniversary this afternoon give a
new impetus to the "Mutual Aid."_

admitted by the medical profession as a funda?
mental principle of healing science. It ls wisely
provided by the human economy that whenever
anything ls wrong in the physical system the
natural forces of the body are brought to bear to
expel the disease. The great aim, therefore, ls
to strengthen the natural powers. This has been
kept in view by the skilful compounders of HOS
TETTER'S STOMACH BtTTEKS, which operates
to give fresh vitality to all the organs of Ute body.
Theeifect of this medicine upon the stomach, the
liver and thc kidneys ls prompt and decisive.
The patient, who ls wise enough to quit drudging
and try the Bitters, soon feels as if he had taken
a new lease of life, an', as he continues the-use
of the article, he ls overjoyed to find the streams
of health coursing through his frame. It is pre?
pared with great care, and its component parts
are entirely vegetable, lt ls free from the objec?
tions so often urned against preparations or the
kind. As a medicinal agent, lt has no equal,
while its pleasing flavor and healthful effects have
made it a general favorite. It is free from all
properties calculated to impair thc system, and
its operations are ax once mild, soothing, and
crhclent. AU who have used HOSTETTER'S
