Mit. EDJTOH: We learn there is to
bo a Cou veut iou held in Columbia,
on Thursday evening, April 2, for
the purpose of uoininnting suitable
porous for State offices, and for
Allow ns to suggest Samuel T.
Pointer, Esq., of Spartauburg, ns a
suitable person to represent the 4th
Congressional District of this ?State.
Mr. Poinier is a Kentuckian by
birth, and opposed the secession
movement iu his State. Since tho
war lie has lived among us-is fully
identified with the interests of the
South, aud keenly alive to the great
wrongs now attempted to be forced
upon ns by radical legislation. Should
he be nominated, we feel sure he can
get the votes of over 2.000 good citi?
zens of Spartanbnrg.
We have seen that Mr. McAliley,
of Chester, has been suggested for
the samo position. While we know
Mr. M. to be a good man, we doubt
if he could seeuro votes sufficient for
his election; and if elected, we doubt
if he would take the test oath. Al?
together, wo know no man in the 4th
Congressional District more eligible
than Mr. Poi nier; and if he should
be nominated, the vote ho? will re?
ceive in Spartauburg, will show how
highly he is appreciated by those
among whom he hus lived for tho last
Permit us to add, that we think it
would be wiso for the Convention to
nominate Gen. Scott for Governor,
and Mr. Boozer for Lieut.-Governor.
Gen. Scott is a Western man, and as
far as his administration of the Freed?
man's Bureau is concerned, wo have
not discovered that ho has any of
Now England's prejudices against the
white people of the South. Mr.
Boozer is known to have the inter?
ests of our State at heart, and his
follow-' itizous have heretofore shown
their confidence in him.
We believe it to be the duty of the
people of our State to harmonize the
differences of tho pa?t as much as
possible; for by no surer means can
wo defeat the designs of tho radical
party, whose, very existence depends
upon the continuance qf contusion
and anarchy. Let us endeavor to
restore the Union under the Consti?
tution; and if in the end our efforts
should fail, und a despotism shall bo
forced upon us, wo eat-nct thou ic*
proaeli ourselves with the thought
that it has resulted from the folly of

Tho wear and tear of lifo tolla upon ua all !
moro or leas. What aro wo but machines?
Tho vital principio ia tho motive power
that koopa tho human engine in motion;
but aa beams, piston?, connection pipes,
condensera and boilcra wear ont, so do
organs, muscles. Usanos and all tho com?
pound parta of that marvellous piece of
work called man.
Tho mechanism of thc body requires to
bo repaired and .strengthened just as much
as the mechanism employed to grind corn,
or spin cotton, or weave cloth. Steam
cannot drive a broken abaft, or impel a
drum or a wheel that is out of gear; nei?
ther can tho vital forco act through a
paralyzed limb, or an inert organ.
Aro you wearing out? Do you feel that
any ono of your organs-your stomach,
liver, bowels, nervous syatem, or any other
essential part of your organization, falters
in its work? If so, repair tho damage
with tho most powerful, yet harmless, of
inviirorants, HOSTETTER'S STOMACH
BITTERS. Remember that debility is tho
"beginning nf tho end"-that the climax
of all weakness is a universal paralysis of
the system, and that such paralyaia ia tho
immediato precursor of death.
- Don't wait for diaeaso to commit its
ravages before you commence tho
Strengthening process. Keep tho whole
body in a vigorous condition by prevent?
ing, as far aa possible, the inroads of de?
cay. Repair tho waste of nature with
nature's best tonio, Hostetter's Ritters.
IT ia a matter of congratulation that we
have at last had a reliable Tonic intro?
duced in Pankuin'a Hepatic Ritter?; manu?
factured at the South by Dr. CF. Pan kain,
the well known Charleston Chemist; and
which can be uaed by all persons, regard?
less of ago or ?ex, who require a tonic
medicine. Ask your family physician, and
ho will be sure to recommend them. For
