Our ootomporary of the Columbia
Guordian repeats ita suggestion for an
editorial conference, in this city.. We
repeat what we hate before said, and
oononr in the opinion expressed by the
Abbeville Press arid Barnier, and the
Winnsboro Netos, (hat, politically con?
sidered, it is not likaly that said oonfer
enoe would result in good. We have no
feats about the harmony of tho opposi?
tion. The developments of an ' early fu?
ture will moke tte a unit in action, as wc
are now a unit in purpose.
The Abbovillo Press and Banner says:
"With due deference to the opinion of
our contemporaries, wa think it prema?
ture to attempt to adjust differences now,
by means of press conferences or party
conventions. Tho difference between
ourselves can easily be adjusted, when
the proper time comes."
We oononr iq this view. In propos?
ing a convention of the people, we con?
templated no immediate movement.

We copy, from the Bural Carolinian,
the following statement from Mr. J. M.

growing cotton. Mr. C. was the suc?

To the Executive Committee of the Stale
Agricultural and Mechanical Society.
GENTLEMEN: As I sm a competitor for
the prize to be awarded for the best five
aores of ootton, I do herein certify that
my five acres of land is an upland basin,
surrounded by a gradually rising slope;
that it was wet and comparatively un?
productive when I bought it, and that I
have by underground draining, manur?
ing, and careful and judicious manage?
ment, brought it to a very high state oi
fertility and productiveness, Ia making
my drains I out a ditch two feet wide by
three-and-a-half deep, and fillod twelve
inches with brickbats or stones, and
threw in straw and con-stnlks to keep thc
earth from falling in amongst them; 1
then filled up with earth. These draint
I prefer to tiles, having tried both.
In November, 1868, after gathering
my corn, I broke 'up the ground with (
half-shovel plow, six inohes deep, anc
followed this with a two-horse plow
being a bull-tongue, fifteen inches long
widened near the point, the better tc
pulverize the soil. The lot remained ii
this condition until January, when i
was harrowed with a large, two-bora<
iron-toothed harrow, which completely
pulverized the soil, and left tho gronn<
cleau and level.
On the first of April, I plowed an<
harrowed again, then laid off the row
four feet, aud put the fertilizer in th
drill, using a mixture of Peruviai
guano 200 pounds, plaster 300 pounds
and leaohed ashes 500 pounds, per acre
I then threw np beds eight inches, am
boarded off to four inches, and com
menced planting on the 27th April, usiui
the Boyd's prolific seed, procured fror
Mr. Beckham, of Richland District, S
C. The seed were planted three fe<!
apart by a compass in the hill, an
covered with the hoe, the plowing to b
done only oue way.
Thc ootton carno up well, and ns soo
as np. I sided closely, then hoed, the
throw back tho soil with a plow, un
thinned out to ono stalk iu the hill,
next run a halt sweep close to thecottor
two furrows to tho row, afterwards ra
ono furrow to tho row with a sweej
breaking out the middles, and followe
with tho heos to kill thc grass. In Ai
gust, another hoeing was given to "la
by" the crop, cotton thon lopping in th
row?. The thorough preparation of tl
land before planting prevented tho ni
oessity of much labor in cultivating til
crop. From those five acres wero picke
and weighed 12,510 pounds. Til
mannre cost us follows: Guano SI
plaster $11; ashes $1; stable manure $21
In competing for the prizo on tho be
one acre of cotton, I certify that tl
land is the same as the five ucres, au
cultivated the samo way, the on
difference being in the kind of manu:
used, and time of putting it on.
Eighty cart loads of stable manure, i
a cost of twenty-five cents per load, we:
broadcasted and plowed uudor in Marci
The laud was thrown up in beds foi
foot apart, and tho Boyd prolific t>c(
planted in hills three feet apart, coven
and cultivated as were tho five acre
This singlo aero yielded a much larg
crop than thc average of the five acre
tho harvest being 3,000 pounds of cot I o
with a cost of $20 for manure.?. Yoi

and judicious. We oononr in them fully
and heartily, and wo believe that sousi
1 ble men generally will fully adopt them
aa correct and just.' lu his speech in
NewjOrleana, the,_ex.-United Status Sena?
tor said: , ?
You will allow me to speak of one
other question whioh is somewhat local
and peculiar to ourselves-a question in
which we of the State of Indiana shall
have to deal, but not to the extent to
which you have to deal with it. In one
way or another the radicals at Washing?
ton intend to have it a fixed faot that the
fifteenth amendment to the Constitution
bas been adopted. Bight or wrong, they
intend it shall be deolared adopted as
?art of the Constitution of the United
tates. Under that provision of tue
Constitution, then, when it shall have
been deolared to have been adopted, the
colored people of tho whole country be?
come voters; they become clothed with
Eolitical rights as they have been before
7 Congressional action; as far as Con
gross could do it, clothed with civil
rights. It is a question for you to con?
sider very carefully what attitude you
men of the South shall occupy toward
the colored population. There is a deli?
berate purpose on the part of adven?
turers from the North-a class of men
who are desoribed as carpet-baggers
to appropriate the entire colored vote of
the South to their cause. And what is
their canso? It is not your cause; it is
not the colored men's cause; it is the
cause of plunder. And the question
presents itself jost in this form: Are you,
men of the South, willing that these ad?
venturers sholl appropriate that large
vote-in some of the Southern States a
majority of the entire vote? Are you
willing that this vote shall be appro?
priated for such a purpose? [A voice
'Not if we oan help it.'] How can , we
help it? Simply enough. It is a ques?
tion simply of personal influence be?
tween you men of the Sooth "to the
manor born," and those who have settled
here for the pnrpose of making theil
home here, on the one side, and these
bap-hazard adventurers of the North, on
the other side. That is tho way the
question stands. New relations have
come to exist between you and the co?
lored people of the Sooth. How will
you place yourself in regard to those
now relations? They have not been ol
your seeking, and they may, perhaps, be
very disagreeable to you; but the negre
is a voter in Louisiana, as he will bo it
Indians, if the fifteenth amendment i<
declared adopted, and it is not wortl
your while, nor is it worth my while, tc
go back on tho fixed fact. That travele:
in the mountain pass is not wise, whet
he is overtaken by the storm, to be cast
ing his eyes back upon the plain whici
he hos left. It is his business to cousi
der the dangers whioh menace him at th<
time, to save himself from the th reate ncc
peril. How can you do it? These nev
i elations are upon you. How are you t<
conduct yourselves toward the coloroe
people? They were onco your friendi
and you wore their friends. There wer
sociul relations between you-tho rola
tin ns of master and servant. They ha?
your confidence aud you had theirs. I
it possiblo that tho stranger oan nov
como iu and make these ancient servant
of yours his servants and your onomy
There is no occasion in theso now rela
tious which were forced upon you, tba
yon should entertain sentiments of dis
like to the negro because of it. It wa
not of his seeking; be did not prodno
this change of relations. Tho altere?
condition of things hus been forced oi
tba country and ou you, not by th
colored man, but by ambitious politi
ciaos North and South who wish to ruak
capital out of it. ['That's so,' nui
cheers.] 1 hopo to seo Southern niei
taking this weapon, which is placed ii
their hands, and usiug it for their coun
try's good. You liavo no causo to cntci
tain against the colored people a feelin,
of prejudice. ['We won't do it.'] Whe
your young mon were far off in the field
and even your aged men-many of thet
were absent during tho four years of th
war-you left theso colored men at you
homos, where they stood sentinels at th
doors, whero your wives and your chi
dren were safe under their protection
They labored and cultivated your lands
and raised those products which suppori
ed the armies in tho field. Aud now, i
it possiblo that tho foreigner-I spea
not of tho foreigner as a man of anothc
couutry, but men foreign to your inte
rests, men of other sectious of tho couu
try-is it possiblo that they shall come i
und make theso colored mon to bato yo
and destroy you? Your interests aro th
interests of the colored man.
A few colored mon may be brougl
round the lobbies of tho Legislatur?
They may bo temporarily invested wit
a few offices; but you go to work an
persuado tho colored men that their ir
tcrests ure secured by just laws, and b
just laws ulone, and that these apparel
benefits which are conferred on a fow e
their number, do not go to make up th
benefits of tho great body of them. Oh
them to understand that tho offices whic
aro conferred on the colored men hoi
and the colored men thero, work a pos
tive injustice to the people at large. Li
them understand that with regard f
their civil rights, you are willing to g?
them just laws. The negro, of his ow
notion, is not going to ask for soci
equality or sooial rights. It ia the Nortl
ern adventurer only who is trying
agitate that question, to make it
ground-work of ill-feeling between y<
and tho colored mao. In 1867, Senat
Wilson, addressing au audience in tb
square, declared this truo doctrine, th
no law in any land could open any mar
or lo bim, and
witl?llic proper ?dat
raoes, is the friend
the one roy of both races,
ment, the colored people .
if yon assure them that you will gire
them just laws, fairly nduiioistered. Po
this, and then the outside adventurer
cannot turn their votes against your Let
the colored men understand that the le?
gislation of your State is not being car- j
ried on to make a few men rich at the 1
expense of the great body of the people.
Appeal to the colored men to stand by
you in your fight for honesty, for jus?
tice, for integrity and for equal laws,
and that appeal will reach his heart as
readily as it reaches the heart of the
great body of the white people. I don't
want you to oonsider what I have said as
the expression of a man who is well in?
formed on the subject. I bave never
boen brought into close contact with co?
lored men to any considerable extent. I
don't kuow much of their habits; I don't
know much of "the influence brought to
bear npon then), but I do boliuvo that
tho men who har? known thom from
childhood up-the men who hare been
their frionda in times past-may, by
proper ooureo, restore that influence in
themselves which will enable them to
secure thc colored voter for tho good of
your State and for the good of the coun?
try. Let the consolidated sentiment of
the men of Louisiana be brought to bear
upon tho Legislature and for the right.
You ask nothing that is wrong. You ask
that yon shall be taxed only for the pub?
lic good, and that when tho taxes are
collected, the money shall bo expended
for the public good, and that the corrupt
tide of special legislation shall be stop
pod. We have much to accomplish.
What is it we intend? That tho Union
shall be perpetual, that it shall rest on
the Constitution, and that all the rights,
privileges and prerogatives of the State
shall be maintained forever under that
government, and that the National Union
thus supported by States clothed with
??ll their righto, will be the temple m
whioh freemen shall worship forever to?
What do we wish to accomplish? No?
thing that is wrong-everything that is
right. Wo wish to establish iu the United
States equal laws and just taxation.
These wo must havo. This plunder of
tho State and national treasury is becom?
ing universal. There must be a return
to a spirit of honesty in the public ser?
vice, both national and State. There is
a power greater than that of law. Daniel
Webster, in one of his beautiful orations,
when the question was agitating the
heart of the world, what treatment Rus?
sin would extend to Kossuth, and whe?
ther Russia would demand the return of |
that patriot vben be was nuder tho pro?
tection of Turkey, said thero was a
power mightier than the earthquake
more terrible than the rumbling of the
storm-the judgment of inn uland.
Lot us, North and South, unite now
for the purpose of maintaining the insti?
tutions of our country in the spirit in
which they were established by thc great
men who founded this Government.
THE MORMONS DEFIANT.-Brigham
Young, in a speech awhile since, said:
"I am tho real Governor of this peo?
ple, and, by the powers of the Most
High, I will be Governor of this Terri?
tory forever and ever. If the Gentiles
don't like this, they can leavo and go to
hell. Tho Governor of the Territory is
useless and can do nothing. If they
undertake to try me in a Gentile court, I
will see the Government in hell first. I
am ready to fight the Government and
tho mob. I have soldiers, rifles, pistols,
ammunition, and pleuty of it, and can?
non, too, and I will use them. I nm on
The second in authority in the Mor?
mon Church, Geo. A. Smith, a vice-Pre?
sident, hos also said:
"A Northern army is a curse. They
burned und dostroyed everything in tho
South, and abused by force, their
women; but let them come hero to abuse
the fair women of Utah in like mannor,
and nil, both old and youug, will have
plenty of arms, and, when they approach,
God will fight the battles and thu Saints
will bo victorious. Ho said tho United
States Government was not at peace; and
ho damned it and hoped to BOO it sink
into hell; that nothing in tho shape of a
free government could stand on North
American soil that was opposed to Mor?
monism and polygamy."
In 1850, the Mormons were 11,380
strong, and in 18G0 numbered 40,273.
lu 1850, they had 0,046 males, and in
1808 20,255. Tho ratio of increase since
1800 at least is doubled. The popula?
tion of Utah at present is 100,000 soula,
of whom 40,000 are men, and 20,000
capablo of bearing arms. Tho area of
Mormon territory, governed by Young
with despotic sway, is larger than that
of New York and Pennsylvania com?
bined, and contains moro square miles
than all the New England State?, or
Maryland, Kentucky and Tennessee. It
is a mountainous country, full of passes
and canons, whero large armies may bo
chocked by small forces. If driven from
their great city, the Mormons will take
to the hills and fight out a la guerrilla,
and if Uncle Sam. wants to know what a
war to put down polygamy will cost, he
can refer to his Seminole experience 'n
Florida. But the "cost" is its chief re?
commendation. It will put hundreds of
millions in the hands of contractors,
plunderers and sboddyites. Oh! "this
best Government tho world ever saw!"

on this road is stationary, sud consists

and fourteen inch stroke, aud of thirty
horse power. These engines are situated
in vaults under the sidewalk, and are
placed at intervals along the line. The
engine for each division turns a driving
wheel, which propels au endless rope
passing round a cylinder at the other ex?

PURITY VERBTS POISON.-Tbero is as much
difference between PH AXON's VITALIA, os SAL?
VATION FOR TUE HAIR and tho tilth-charged
hair-darkencra, as between tho Pool of Bethes?
da, that an angel stirred, and a fever-breed?
ing mud pond. The VITALIA is a crystalline
thud, without a single impurity or noxious
property, and tho naturalness of the shades it
imparta to grey hair is uncqnallcd. M1J3
