MEETING} OF THE JOIST STOCK COMPANY".
This company held an afternoon meetii
and reassembled this evening. A commun
waa appointed during the afternoon se ask
to determine whether or not any organlz
tlon of the society could be effected under tl
g?nerai Incorporation act of the State. Gei
eral Botler, of that committee, reported th
evening that a oveful examination of the la1
re gar ffing the subject bad been made, an
that the. committee were of one minc
and that waa that lt -was inei
pedlent to attempt to organize under any o
the existing laws. A temporary organis?t lo.
with tm directors waa recommended Instead
Jt waa also recommended that the compan;
apply to the Legislature tor an act ol in coi
poration. This recommendation elicited con
aiderable discussion, but waa finally adopted.
The list of additional subscriptions to tho?
previously reported was read, which show*
that fifteen hundred and ten dollars had beei
An election for directors ot the compan;
Was then gone into, which resulted In tb
Obolos of the following named gentlemen: B
-C. Shiver of Blohland, J. B. Palmer of Bich
Jand, Johnson Hagood. of Barnwell, W. C

Of Charleston, and M. W. Gary of Edgefleld.
It was decided by vote that the directors take
Charge of all moneys received for stock of the
company sold, the same to be deposited on
Interest In some safe banking company.
A series of resolutions offered by Mr. J. S.
JUobardsoo, of Sumter, waa adopted. These
resolutions provide, first, that immediate steps
be tak9n to increase the stock; second, that
the misters of tbe subordinate granges of tbe
Patrons ot Hubandry be requested to act as
agents In soliciting subscriptions to the stock
Bot the company by members of the granges.
RTL at the masters of the granges request
Khe members to subscribe at least for twenty
Hfive share?, and that the members of each
H^range have the privilege of taking one hun
Bdred shares. It was also resolved that the
Roasters of the subordinate granges report In
r columbia, on the 15th of January next, and
that, at roch meeting, the organization of the
Joint Stock Company be completed. A reso?
lution requesting the grand masters of
granges to forward blanks, with Instructions,
to masters of subordinate granges, Betting
forth the advantages of the company, was
Ex-Governor Bonham, o? Edgefleld, sug?
gested a resolution, which was adopted, pro?
hibiting the transfer of stock without the con
seat of the society by a vote. This caused
gome debate. It was proposed to amend the
?attat resolution so that with the consent of
tiie president of the society the stock might
be transferable. Any restriction as to tbe trans?
fer of the stock was opposed by several. Hr.
B. CVNeale took a business view of the matter
Aoisule of the question. As to what any one
rnlght be pleased to subscribe as a kind ol
jielp at present to the society, others might
wish to look opon lt as aa "investmc
"a business matter," and would not deslr
bave any embargo upon or any restrlctlo
the transfer of it. General Gary, of Bi
field, took very much the same view of
matter. Governor Bonham favored retal:
the stock In the hands o? the original sU
holders. A compromise waa suggested by
R. C. Shiver, of Columbia, to the effect I
the stock should be offered to the society
fore any other disposition was made of lt.
General Butler's opinion the discussion
premature. He moved that the whole ma
be referred to the January meeting.
Richardson at this Juncture withdrew
resolution, and without transacting any
tber business the meeting adjonrned.

A PAST OF CHARLESTON'S MERIT.
Unusual Interest was manifested by the
many farmers and planters who collected at
an early hour around the. space allotted for
the exhibiting of agricultural implements.
Almost every conceivable labor-saving ma?
chine had a place here. Conspicuous among
the exhibitors were the names of J. E. Adger
A Co. and C. Graveley, of Charleston, who
bad a magnificent display ot the articles re?
ferred to, which were continually surrounded
and tbeir qualities being remarked upon.
From the first named house, a rotary harrow
carried the heart of every enemy ol weeds
along with lt as the practical illustration of Ita
usefulness was heine made. Mr. J. M. Craw?
ford, who plants near this city, had upon ex?
hibition a very floe working improved har?
row, bat he was completely taken aback when
the rotary got to work. Mr. Crawford is a
successful practical planter, and his ap?
proval alone is a sufficient voucher as
to the usefulness of the Implement,
but lt was universally acknowledged.
Besides this, there were irom the same house
a case of Coll ins's sweeps and ploughs, con?
taining sixteen varieties; a case of Farqua
bar's sweeps and ploughs, thirty varieties;
five varieties of the Watt plough; the same
number ol the Collins plough; a large num?
ber of Colllns's sweeps on stooks, and new
ploughs named respectively the General Lee
and Stonewall Jackson. The portraits of these
renowned generals are neatly painted upou
the beams, i .miner's sub-soil plough, shown
by the same firm, was highly praised. It was
practically tested, and went to a depth of six?
teen Inches, making very neat work.
Mr. C. Graveley'a collection of agricultural
Implements was as mach the centre of attrac?
tion as the above named. Among the many
patents and useful machines displayed by bim,
were a Mcsherry wheat drill: Wright's cotton
planter; Brinley two-horse plough, which was
satisfactorily tested on the ground; a one-horse
plough of same make; also a No. 1C, and a
subsoil plough; one fast cutting cross saw; one
single hook tooth cross-cut; one double tooth
cross-cut; one man cross-cat; one lightning
hand saw; one Hoe's inserted tooth saw; one
Hoe's circular saw; a forty-five saw Magnolia
cotton gin, and a large variety of sweeps,
Bhovels, scooters, bull tongues, ?c., &c. In a
word, the showing made by these two houses,
Charleston may well be proud of.
The paintings, fancy work, machinery, fer?
tilizers, and other articles contributed by
Charlestonians, exhibited In the the exposi?
tion, and mentioned In previous letters, all
received much attention, esDeclally those In
'he ladies' department, which was crowded
with visitors from morn till night.
Daring the day there were frequent show
ers, whlcb interrupted the out-door pleasures
of the gentler part of the visitors, and sent
them hastily to seek cover under the spacious
roof of the building mentioned. Upon such
occasions the scene inside was a magnificent
one, for all were ia,their best colors ana
spirits. No one disagreeable happening, be?
sides the rain, disturbed any one. and althoush
one could hardly obtain e tandi og room, the
jostling appeared to suit, and jokes and the
ringing laugh of the belleB made all merry.
A beatitiful pair of ducks have been placed
In the fountain pond in the building, wblob
attract the attention of the little people.
As on the proceeding day much enthusiasm
was displayed on the racing grounds, and loDg
before the hour for the races to commence
had arrived, every available seat apon the
large stand waa occupied, while the fences
and elevations were covered with eager ex
pee tau ts. The drizzling rain waa not sufficient
to dampen the ardor of the gentler aez, and
with the protecting aid ot umbrellas and
water-proofs, they entered with zeal Into the
lest l vi ties ol the occasion.
Tbere were but two races worthy ot men*
tlon, the first being for a purse of ono hun?
dred dollars run ni og race, mlle heats, best two
in three, for horses not trained. For this race
Messrs. Fludd and Cash, of Sumter, entered
"Prussian," a bay, and Colonel Bacon, of
Edgefleld, entered "Bob Shelton," who!
ran on Tuesday. A start was made after tho
usual and annoying work cf clearing the track.
"Bob Shelton" took the lead, and kept lt well
throughout the flrBt heat, coming In moro
than a length ahead; time 1.53 J. After the
fifteen minutes allowed by the j udges had expir?
ed, the second start was made, a better start
than the first, Shelton getting the burst, gain?
ing on the first quarter, and holding his dis?
tance to the end of the mlle, running the
heat and the race In 1.524. Betting
was pretty lively In this contest, aud consider?
able money changed hands.
The second test was tor trotters to sulkey, j
best two In three, mlle heats. For this Mr. !
J. N. Talbot, of Columbia, entered chestnut
horse "Billy," and Mr. J. 0, Graham, of Bleb
land, entered "diaries Logan." This was a
lively race so far as the first heat waa concern* I
ed, although the sportsmen present were san-1
gulne before the heat was half through that I
"Billy" would win lt, as he did in 2.57. In the
second heat "Logan" broke badly, but gained I
a portion of bis loss, not enough, however,
but to just keep himself from belog distanced, I
lt appeared, bad Talbot let bis horse out, the
heat and race being won by "Billy." No other
races were made up, with the exception of a
little turn with pacers, that afforded some
amusement to the spectators, especially when
one of the contestants reined his steed ofi the
track into the enclosure. j
Darkness coming on, and the storm lacreas
in g, tbe most of the people turned their steps
to warda the oentre ot the city. They who had
houses of their own, or some kind friend
whose hospitality they could enjoy, were for
t?nate, as there Is here scarcely any place
where man may lay his bead. The hotels are
literally packed, and many people have been
turned away; the clerks begin to look haggard
and tired, our friend Gadsden having hardly
time to get his meals, and even the Iron coo-1
atltution of mine boat Gorman, of the Colum-1
bia, appears to have had a little over-testing
INCIDENTS AND ACCIDENTS.
The runaways and smash-ups that generally I
figure where strange horses are carried Into I
strange places have their place in the enron!
cling of the day's proceedings. Luckily no
one bas been seriously injured, although .a
number have been unceremoniously spilled
ont. No leas than three buggies have gone to
wreck, a thing to be regretted by every one
except the carriage manufacturers and wheel
wrights, of which artisans Columbia can boast
of some very good ones. No accidents have
occured upon the grounds save the ? esc il bin g
of a perambulating curve irom the back of a I
bucking nag Into au adjacent lot by a future I
citizen of these United States. .
The number of "Jeremy-Dlddlers" bas In
creased; there is an alarming crop of them,
and they should be awarded some kind of a
premium. One cannot walk In any direction I
without meeting with a "soapman," each
package warranted to contain more money I
than ls asked for lt, a whlp-selier who sells I
a whip for seventy-five c?ats and gives away a
dollar or a sweat table.. There a fellow cries
himself hoarse at tbe tall of a wagon over |
"prize candy packages," while bis sorry
looking nag (he pays five dollars per day hire,
which helps pay taxes) eats bis "shocks" In I
front as If be understood the whole matter. I
Strange to say, the fools are not ali dead yet,
ind many a countryman goes borne minns
twenty-five dol?ais from his certainty of know-1
lng where lay the "lit tle Joker."
Captain Bates and Mrs. Captain Bates, some
where ander seventeen feet in length, occupy I
i rather quiet nook near the secretary's I
juice, from where they look dowe upon the
iceue, with twenty-five cents worth of satis-1 '
action for every one (the press excepied) I '
vho desire to look up to them. The "unhappy 11
amlTy* occupies a large tent with wings like a I
?eroD, longer than the body, in rear of the ex-1
lOBltlon building, where they seem to live I
re ry happily, especially when lt rains and the I
sauvas is filled. "Tue riots of New York" ,
itretch along the street leading from the gate I,
? the centre of the enclosure, and none of the
jr lek bats or bayo nels have doue any serious I <
injury yet. Prince Erle, tumbling down stairs I <
n the most approved style, rivets the gaze of I
.he Bmaller portion of humanity, while the I
Tat women and men suggest ideas of I 1
sternal bliss were one only a Fiji Islander. 11
Interspersed with these are numerous little I .
>ootba, some presided over oy dilapidated
emalus who have tbe appearance of having I
>een cast out by Colonel v. Woodhull, where I

.'NOTHING SUCCEEDS LIKE SUCCESS."
LONDON, November 7.
The Dally Telegraph, referring to the re?
election ot Grant, says: "No one deserved
better ot his country, or is worthier of a place
among the illustrious men who have twice
held the Presidential office. England bas bad
cause to complain of many things, but Presi?
dent Grant's policy towards ber bas never
been wilfully petulant or hostile." The Tele?
graph hopes the United States will now take
care of Mexico and Cuba.
The Standard upholds the principled on
which the Southern States seceded from the
Union, as opposed to Republicanism, which
lt denounces as "a deification of the
temporary passions of the majority," and
as identified with personal and politi?
cal corruption. It argues that in conse?
quence of the supremacy of thu Republican
party, the States are loaded with enormous
debts, and the foreign holders of their secur?
ities receive notti ng. It bolds the Republi?
cans responsible also for the insurrection io
Cuba, the anarchy in Mexico, and the murder
of the Emperor Maximilian. The Democrats,
however, lt considers no better.

There is great enthusiasm lo Rheims over

THE RESULT IN BOVtM CAROLINA
The Lut est Facts and rtgnrt? from the
Coom les-Apathy In Abbeville.
- [FROM ona OWN OOBSRSPONDBNTS ]
The election here was very quiet, and the
vote small, not one-half or either whites or
blacks voting. At this hoi, Greeley received
38 votes and Grant 290, arM about the same
proportion prevails throughput the county.
The Black Vote lat,: Barnwell.
BLXCXVH^?, November 6.
The Grant electoral ticket bas earned Barn- ]
well .County by about ISOOdmajorlty. A sinai1
vote was polled, and there were no disturb-1
GRAHAM'S, November 5.
At this precinct Grant received 194 votes J
and Greeley 77. The blacks turned out in full
force, and all voted for Grant. ' ( '
The Usual Result Cpa .Beaufort.
BEAUFORT, November 6.
The Grant and Wilson electoral ticket bas j
carried Beaufort County by about 3600 majori?
ty. A four-fifth vote waa-polled, and there]
were no disturbances of any consequence. All i
of the different boxes will be counted In Beau?
fort town day after to-morrow, and you will
then have the official return. Bot I think you j
can rely upon the statement above.
No Change In Chester.
CHESTER, November 5.
The Grant and Wilson electoral ticket has
carried Chester County by about 1800 majorl
ly. A small white vote was polled, and there
were no disturbances. ? .
Indifference In sedgefield.
EOOEFIELD, November 7.
The election passed off very quietly. The
whites took but little Interest lu the election.
There were 144 while votes cast, and 811 col
ired votes. Of these the Greeley electors re?
ceived 132 votes, the Grant electors 821, and
me vote for O'Conor and Adams. Have not
leard Irom any of the other precincts In the j
The Whites In Georgetown all for
GEORGETOWN, November 6.
Grant's majority In Georgetown will be
?bout 1600. The vote, with two precinct* te
dear from, is Grant 125!), Greeley 191. The
colored vote was almost solid for Grant, he
having lost, so far as heard from, but tblr- j
teen votes in the county. All the white men
roted for Greeley except nine.
All Quiet In Kershaw.
CAMDEN, November 6.
The election was dull, and the white vote
very light. Grant's majority In Camden ls 755
out ol 1227 votes. It ls probable that the
county will give Grant a majority of from 800
The Nominal Election In Marlboro'.
BENNETTSVILLB, November 5.
The voteo ivt this precinct have nearly all
been cast (three o'clock P. M.,) and stand as
follow.-: Colored voters 475, all (or Grant;
white voters 56. Very few whiten from the
country have come , out to vote. Indeed, so
[ar as they are concerned, the election is
merely nominal. As this ls the largest precinct
In the county, a tolerably correct Idea may be
lormed of the result of the final count, but I
will send you the official returns as soon os lt
can be bad.

Some Good News from Union.
UNION, November 6
The election to-day passed off very quietly,
but In consequenca of the late hour before the
polls are closed it is Impossible for me to give
the full vote of the county. At this box,
Jeter, Conservative, received 520 votes; Mob
ley, Regular candidate, 548 votes, and H. H.
D. Byron, Independent Republican 30. I feel
confident that T. B. Jeter ls elected by over
600 majority, some Bay 750. I can give you
nothing reliable as to the electoral ticket, for
two reasons: 1st. The State executive com?
mittee did not furnish enough Greeley and
Brown tickets, and although the press in this
place was set to work upon them early in the
day, a number of persons voted for Jeter J
alone, not having Greeley tickets. In the j
next place, aa some of ibe other cooDties In
this congressional district did not feel so Al?
elen t Interest In a chs.nga.-of our Federal gov?
ernment as to vote for a decent congressman,
a large number of our people voted to con?
tinue Grant and his marshals in power. If
they can stand Wallace as. their representa?
tive, of course they rmst not complain if we
assist to elect Grant president I will try and
give yon the full vote to-morrow.

In addition to the four Incendiary fires In
this State, which har ? been reported in THE j
NEWS during the pas , four days, and which
have involved the destruction of three gtn
houses, a large quan ii ty of cotton and one
kitchen, State papers received yesterday come
co hand filled with accounts of other acts oT
incendiarism resulting in the" destruction of
ono kitchen, one mill, five gln-bouees, and
not less than seventy bales of cotton. There
ls a horrible suggestiveness In those simulta?
neous applications .ol the Incendiary's torch,
and lt ls sad and sicker lng to hear of the mid
night sky being luridly Ht up throughout the
State by fires which' ar ? the result of Ignorant,
besotted malice, and which ' each tell of the j
annihilation of the results of the season's I

A Robbery and if Itt In Kemivw.
The Camden Journal reports that at about
daylight, on tbe morning ot Friday, the 1st I
instant, a fire was dlscovered-In the large I
three-story gin-house of Mr. Thomas W. Lang,
on the weet side of Wateree River. The glu
house waa wed Jointly' hy Messrs. Tneodore
and T. W. Lang, abd .contained at the. time ot
the fire, about thirty-seven bales of cotton,
fllieen or which were Hat, ode' thousand
bushels of cotton seed ?nd extensive machine- [
ry for ginning; cotton and threshing rice.-. It
seems that when th?' Soas? was Opened the I
Interior was ob fire to'knch an extent that lt
was Impossible to enter, and con*equently I
nothing was saved, eitcept a few bushels of I
cotton seed next to tht mill race,' add about a
baie of stained cotton. The mill adjoining the
da-house also caught fire abd bnrued almost
to the water's edge. ' 1? I
There is no one at present to : whom sos
plc!on attaches. It ls probable that a heavy }
robbery was committed and the bouse fired
to conceal it. The loan will amount to not less
than nine thousand do liars, and there was no I
insurance upon the premises. This ls tbe I
rourth case of gln-houE es being bornt in this I
oopory-^Pte-seaeoo, aaaa fct -benoo^ee^-^uossaJ

their year's labors.
Two Incendiary IPIres tn Newberry.
The Newberry Herald says: "We learn that
on Tuesday night last, about ll o'clock, the
kitchen ot Mr. Albert .'.pear m an, near Jalapa, I
was discovered to b( ou fire, and was soon I
totally destroyed. There had been no fire In I
lt since noon of that day. It was clearly the
act of an Incendiary. Aad again on Friday
night last, about the same hour, the gin house
of Mr. N. B. Davenporc, In this county, was Bet
on tire by come fiend, and the building wltb
twenty-one bales of cotton burned. The lu; ld
light of this burning was seen lo town and
excited some alarm, lt being at the first sup
posed to be from somu building In the town." I
A Oln-Honae Burned In Sumter.
The Sumter Watchman says : "We are truly
sorry to learn that our friend and fellow
townsman, Thomas II. Fraser, Esq., had lils I
gin-house (localed about len rolles from this
place, and containing three bales of cotton,
one of his own and two belonging to colored
men residing on his premises,) completely de
s troy ed byan accidental fire on the night of I
Monday, the 4th Instant,with all the machinery I
and gearing attached a lt. Tbere was'no In
surance on either thi building, machinery,
or cotton, and his loss is about seven hundred
dellars outright. The gin-house was perfectly
new, his old one having been burned two
years ago by the hand of an Incendiary." !
Accidental Flrea In Wlllamabnrg.
The Elngstree Star reports two fires In Its I
neighborhood aa followa: "Mr. McBride
Scott's gin-house was destroyed on Tuesday
evening last, with six or seven bales of cotton
belonging to himself and other parties. Mr.
Scott wai giving his personal attention to the I
gin at the time the accident occurred, and lt
ts supposed the fire originated from a match in
the cotton, or lrom the friction of the ginning
apparatus, which ls sometimes the case. A
considerable wind wfs blowing at the lime, j
and lt was with great difficulty that his
dwelling house was swed, lt having caught
several times during Ute fire.
"Since the above was put In type, we are In
formed that the gin-house of Mr. E. S. Sauls,
(who lives In the neighborhood of Mr. Scott,)
was destroyed by Aro on Monday morning
last. The combustion occurred while the gin I
was In motion, and lt la believed was caused
by a match being in lue cotton. Mr. Baals lost
eight bales of colton belonging to himself, and
some, belonging to other persons.
"We can scarcly look at an exchange but
what we see an account of the barning of gin
houses, and, In most of Instances, large quan
titles of cotton. Farmers should exercise the I
greatest caution possible lu protecting this
valuable species of property."
Another Gin-House Barned.
The Edgefield Advertiser says: "On Friday
evening last, Mr. Jacob Lagrone, living some
three miles from Lott's, had his gin-houae, I
Borne ton bales cotton, seventy-five bushels
oats, colton Beed, Ac, destroyed by fire. Tne
fire occurred whilst the gin was io motion,

In the colton. Loss over two thousand dol-1
