Wo would suggest to the Fairfield Sol?
diers' Relief Association the passage of
resolutions favoring the lease or pur?
chase from tho Stato of the Citadel
buildings in Charleston, or Niokerson's
Hotol (tho Methodist Female College
buildings) in Columbia, by the State
Survivors' Association, and the revival of
tho South Carolina Military Academy.
If each brunch of tho State Association
will undortake tho education of ope
youth, tho son o' 6 parent dying in de?
fence of 'the State,'et an annual expense
of $400, there being thirty-two Counties
in the State, these young men, so sup- ;
ported, would form the nucleus of a body
of cadets that would soon gather around
theai, and prove an ornament to tho
State. We know of no gentleman more
caleula tod to succeed in organizing such !
an institution than Maj. John P. Thom?
as, and.perhaps his services could be so- J
cured.w; , R i... ./. ,
We will be here met, perhaps; oh the
part of peoplo fond Of do-nothing con?
sultations, hy the stereotyped objection
always made to every unselfish and pub?
lic-spirited enterprise-that it costs too
muon. We answer, it ' costs not one
tenth' of what it is Worth. There is no
use to argue wit? a niggard. The best
way is to hold on to your opinion, and
let him hold on to his dime. Let him
squeeze: it, if he pleases, till the eagle
screams. But to a different class of peo?
ple we address ourselves!
The' founders of the South Carolina
Military Institute in one respect were
wise. ' Always willing to promote com?
mon schools where practicable, and
having done more to promote rudiment?
ary ?ducation than is generally known,
oar forefathers also understood tho great
truth that "knowledge descends," that
it is from the highly educated that in?
formation spreads,' and by the highly
educated that social progress is ad?
vanced. A Brewster, a Faraday, an
Agassiz, a Newton, a Butler, aro worth
more to even the material interests of
society than the thousand smatterers.
We can only allude to the principio; the
reader can follow it out for himself.
The education of those who promise,
from social position, to be powerful for
good or evil in their respective neighbor?
hoods to a very high degree is, then, a
clear duty,- and is the most certain
method' of spreading liberal thonght
throughout tho entire ' moss of society.
Let us liaye an institution, therefore, de?
voted to ?this purpose, and under the
control of1'persona commanding tho con?
fidence of 'the white people of the Hf ato
-the surviving officers ' of tho forces
contributed by South Carolina to tho
Confederate cause: The statement of
our proposition is sufficient for reflecting
men, and we forbear doing anymore,
therefore, than making the suggestion,
and permitting others who may favor
the idea, to com mont upon it at largo.

lhere .was^ groat excitement among
the'negroes in Sunflower County, Miss.,
last?Saturday: ; Instigated, by the incen?
diary harangues, 'of one Combash, a co?
lored mau, .they assembled to the num?
ber of 400'or 500 in the vicinity of Min?
ter's store, on the Tallahatchie River, j
After going to tho store and making
threats, and cursing out the whites gene?
rally, Colonel Minter made them a little
speech for the purpose of pacifying them,
but he was met with yells and abuse.
They-threatened to burn tho storo and
dwellings of .tho whites in that vicinity.
When the whites by words could not pa?
cify them, they tried the offeot of powder
and.lead, which dispersed them in a few
rounds, The freedmen, to the number
of 50? and upwards, were, at the latest
dates, encamped' in some old fields on
thc Archer place.
The Great Eastern is the great cable
layer, and now, having done such good
service, in, the At lau tic, she is about to
show herself in that part of the Indian
Ocean known as the Arabian Sea. At
last accounts, the Great Eastern was
stowing away forty miles daily of the
cable soon to be laid between Aden anil
Bombay, a distance of 1,800 miles, more
or loss. Aden has a Uno harbor, and is
a Very important point, though for many
years lt has boen only a coaling station
for steamers betwoen Bombay and Suez.
Fortifications have boon built there, and
with the completion of tho Suez Canal,
this British port will claim public atten?
tion again. Of course, telegraphic con?
nection with India is important, and the
now link is another in the chain that is
gradually girdling thc world.
PARAGUAY.- \dditionul advices of a

verely defeated on tho 18th of August at
Cnruguaty.'his loss amounting to'1,000
killed and twelve cannon captured. He
then fled to Ignacion, and was again
attached and defeated, losing twenty-five
cannon, all his steamers and forty-four
of tho British prisoners. Count D'Eu
is vigorously following up these victo?
ries, and Lopoz has been declared an
outlaw by the provisional govornment.

CONCLUSIVE EVIDENCE IN FAVOR |
OF IIOSTETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS.
W. H. Reese, a leading druggist in Monti*
cello, III., ib a letter of Juno G, 1868, writes to
thin effect: "Having sold Hostetter's Bitters
for tho past four years, I cannot but speak of
tho article as being tho best tonic and appe?
tizer extant. Daring the ague season of 1865-6,
I could not koep a sufficient atook on hand to
supply my customers. In fact, your Bitters
was ?.i yin .'c ?s quinine. I learn that physi?
cians prescribo it all over the Western coun?
try. Indeed, a groat many families think they
are not safe without your invaluable tonio."
J. K. Witherspoon, Esq., a magistrate of
Kershaw C .linty, 8. G., states, under dato
April 13.1868, that he has used tho Bitters
constantly in bis own family for tho provious
two years. He ti rat tried the preparation when
suffering from exhaustion produced by a se?
vero attack of fever. Before the first hottlo
was finished ho experienced a remarkable
chango for tho better. Ho had tried brandy
at tho outset, but found that did him more
harm than good. In one month from tho time
he commenced using the Bitters his health,
strength and appetite wore restored.. He had
recommended tho articlo to others in liko cir?
cumstances, and never known it to fail, and
had found it a perfect specifio for chills and
Mr. Samuel Young, of Clarion, Pa., under
dato April 6, 1868, certifies that he was com?
pletely curod of "ono of thc moat distressing
attacks of dyapepaia that ever afflicted any
mortal," by throo bottles of tho Bitters, after
"various other remedies had proved power?
less." Restored to perfect health, ho thanks
"that excellent preparation for tho result."
Dr. G. M. Spencer, of Bruah Creek, Perry
County, Ala., writing thonco Fobruary 8, 1808,
says: "I have used your Stomach Bitter? for

superior to moat of thu Bitters now prescribed
by tho profession generally."_Oct 1 f6
