Grand Dcinocrntto Demonstration At
In Fairfield, the ball lins been
fairly opened under the fairest aus?
pices. A grand gathering of whites
and blacks took place nt Ridgeway,
on Saturday last. Tho crowd carno
from Richland and Winnsboro," and
Kershaw and from this District, gen?
erally. Upon tho arrival of tho
special train from "Winnsboro, the
procession was formed, under tho
direction of Dr. Edmunds. With
mnsio and campaign banners, headed
by the speakers for the occasion, the
procession moved to the spot selected
for the exercises of the day. The
President of the meeting, Colonel H.
C. Davis, announced the order in
which the regular speakers would
address the crowd. General Hamp
tqn was introduced and received with
the usual demonstration of regard
and admiration. With his accus?
tomed high tone and fino sonso and
generous spirit, General Hampton
spoke, addressing his remarks more
especially to the colored people, and
making an effective and eminently
Colonel Thomas waa next intro?
duced, as one of the Presidential
Electors for the State at large. Col.
Thomas arose, and, with his usual
earnest and winning manner, made
an eloquent, forcible and telling
speech. The Convention has made a
judicious selection in him as one of
the Electors at large. Ridgeway teas
. proud of her son.
General Kennedy, of Kershaw,
was next introduced, as the other
Elector for the State at large, and
made a most sensible, discreet and
eloquent address, showing that the
Convention bad made,.in his person,
a wise selection.
Next came Colonel MoMoster, a
eon of Fairfield, who ably discussed
the question of the day.
Colonel Rion, of Winnsboro, next
came forward. He confined his
remarks to the colored people, and
made to them a sensible and effective
speech, in mode, style and manner
suitable to the capacity of his hear?
Major Mcuinre, oi Chester, the
Elector for this Congressional Dis?
trict, was next presented. Major
McClure made a pointed and telling
speech-neith?r "parliamentary" nor
"elocutionary," . but decidedly de?
nunciatory of the class of favorite
carpet-baggers, scalawags, et id omne
genus. He will do good work in his
Captain DePass, of Camden, next
delivered an eloquent address, in his
nsnal easy and off-hand style, evinc?
ing great earnestness in the cause of
the Demooraoy, and predicting a glo?
rious triumph in November next.
At this point, Colonel Davis stated
that the exercices of tho forenoon
would close by the reading by Col.
Thomas of the platform recently
adopted by tho Democracy of South
Carolina, in convention assembled,
and further announced that the
speaking would be resumed after
Col. T. tbon read tho resolutions
adopted as aforesaid. With enthu?
siastic cheers for Seymour ann Blair,
the vast assemblage went to dine.
The barbecno was gotten up in fine
style, and the same feast provided
for white and colored. After all had
satisfied the inner man, the roll of
the drum called the orowd together
on the bill-Bide.
Colonel Davis then introduced
Captain Davis, a son of Bishop Da?
vis, who made a capital speech, urg?
ing ceaseless activity and work in the
Judge Leitner, also of Camden,
came last, and fitly closed tbe white
role -with an eloquent speech. Mr.
R. G. Lamar now proposed tho fol?
lowing resolutions, which, upon mo?
tion, were unanimously adopted:
Resolved, That we cordially endorse
and ratify tho nominations, made by
thc recent State Democratic Conven?
tion, of Electors for President and
vice-President of tho United States,
and hereby pledge our most stren?
uous efforts to placo these Eleotors
in a position to cast the votes of
South Carolina for Seymour and
Resolved, That tho thanks of this
meeting be tendered to the gentle?
men who have so ably addressed us
At the invitation of tho Chairman,
Colonel Davis, Colonel Thomas now
proceeded to introduce the colored
D?mocratie speokors of Columbia.
Ho stated to the colored people
present, that persons of their own
mee would now address them, and
pointing to t)io words inscribed on
tlie campaign banner of the colored
Democratic club of Columbia, ex?
plained to them how, under the aus?
pices of the Democratic party, the
colored people would find all the
prosperity, and peace, and harmony,
that they desired-how, by com?
bining tho brains of the white man
willi tho labor of the colored man,
there would be consummated results
mutually advantageous, and how by
uniting with the Southern people,
they would save their race and secure
a hopeful future.
Pleasant Goode and William Stow
ers thereupon each spoke, and mudo
sensible, earnest and discreet re?
Colonel Rion next introduced tho
colored Democratic speaker of the
District, John Smart, who spoke
with good effect.
Thus closed tho exercises of the
day. It was a most successful affair.
Nearly 2,000 persons were present,
and much enthusiasm prevailed. The
sentiments of the speakers were
agreeable to both classes of tho
crowd. Upon tho colored people,
the truth seemed to dawn.
Well done for Ridgeway !
Much credit is due to the commit?
tee of arrangements.
We hail the rising star of the Fair?
Let the fires kindled on Saturday
burn on, until the whole State shall
be ablazo with a generous flame that
shall consume all the mushroom
growth of radicalism, and leave
standing the former columns of our
pride and honor and renown. The
decrco has gone forth, and Heaven
blesses it-that South Carolina must
and shall be redeemed from the alien
rule that now curses her with its
deadly, upas-like influences.
The adjournment of Congress must
be a source of great relief to Presi?
dent Johnson, whoso dignified and
courageous conduct toward that
usurping body, although for the
time partially unavailing, cannot be
too highly commended by every
right thinking man and pntriot.
When wo come to count up the results
of the political battle, we find that
although many obnoxious measures
were passed over his head, yet he, too,
had his triumphs. Ho successfully
resisted what appeared at one time
to be inevitable-his deposition from
the Presidency. He melted Stan?
ton's glutinous properties and suc?
ceeded in "sticking" him on the
shelf. He succeeded in arraying
the recusant radical Senators on tho
side of law and order. Ho succeed?
ed in bringing old Thad. Stevens
into contempt with his own party,
and in utterly confounding Butler,
whom they said "God raieed up for
the express purpose of impeaching
the President." Ho succeeded in
consolidating the Democratic forces
into au an army, destined in Novem?
ber to sweep radicalism out of na?
tional existence. Wo doubt whether
the dogged determination of "Old
Hickory" himself would havo stood
with more unconquerable determina?
tion, alone and singly at his guns,
defending tho Constitution, than
Andrew Johnson. And wo sincerely
congratulate him upon the briof
respite ho is now to enjoy from the
unnatural contest betweou tho legis?
lative and executive departments of
the Government.-New Orlean THmes.
Ono of tho chief peculiarities of
the Missouri bottom, is said to be the
great growth of sunflowers. For
miles and miles they extend in un?
broken and profuse luxuriance aud
utter uselessness. They, it is said,
went first brongbt here by the Mor?
mons, when they were emiguating
Westward from Nwuvoo, and have
since spread until they have extend
ed for 1,000 miles along the river.
SCIENCE: ADVANCES.-AS SOON
aa an article purporting to bo of utility
baa been teated, and its merits endorsed
by public opinion, unprincipled parties
endeavor to .replenish their doploted
purses by counterfeiting and substituting
a spurious for tho gonuino article. Some
time einco, mercury, in tho disguise of
pills, powders, Ac, was given for all dis?
eases of tho stomach and liver, whilo qui?
nine was freely administered for the
chills. At length, HOSTETTER'S STO?
MACH BITTERS mado its a?voiit, and an
entire new system of healing was inaugu?
rated. Tho beneficial effects.of this valu?
able preparation wore at onco acknow?
ledged, and mineral poisons suffered to
sink into that obscurity to which au en?
lightened age has cousignod them. There
have been many spurious Bitters palmed
upon tho community, which, after trial,
havo been found perfectly worthless,
while HOSTETTER'S has proved a bless?
ing to thousands, who owe to it their
restoration to health and strength.
For many years, wo have watched tho
steady progress of HOSTETTER'S STO?
MACH BITTERS in public estimation, and
its beneficent effects as a cure for all com?
plaints arising from tho stomach, of a
morbid nature, and wo aro freo to say
that it can be relied upon as a certain
relief and remedy. Its propiictors have
made tho above preparation, after years of I
1 careful study and sitting, and aro now
reaping the reward claimed by this valua?
ble specific, and which they so richly
merit, lt is the only preparation of tho
kind that is reliable in all cases, and it
therefore demands the attention of tho
alllicted. Aug 1 f

Tho annals of tho American Republic

very lifo of freo government is on trial,
and it will bo a Bad commentary on the
capacity of thc people, for tho exercise of
that high trust if they, tho jurors who are
lo try the issue, pronounco a verdict of
self-condemnation. If tho South has any

and every citizen is vitally interested in
the progress of tho battle, and cannot

As an organ, not only of sound Demo?
