OUR NATIVE LAND.-If poverty aud
distress were sufficient reasons for
leaving South Carolina, few families
or connections, we imagine, of its white
population, would now bo ia it. We
have all suffered sorrow and bereave?
ment, loss of property, and temporarily
at least, the loss of liberty. But there
is a fooling that keeps some of us nt
home, a deep religious feeling. It is
that we, who aro strong, should remain
here upou our native soil, and help to
bear the burdens of those that are weak.
It is that wo, who have survived the war,
should build up our wusto places around
the graves of those, alas ! who perished,
and left their loved relatives to tho pro?
tection of our laws and institutions such
as it is our duty to strive to make them.
It is becauso this is our country, and it
shall not be taken from us. It is because
tho glory of life is often but the halo of
its sufferings, and because that material
prosperity which we so persistently cou
fomul with truo felicity, too often proves
a delusioa whea attaiued, and turns, like
the apples of Sodom, into ashes ia our
grasp. It is because there is a solid
satisfaction ia remaining at the post that
God has assigned us, in striving humbly
to do our duty, uutil called by our
Almighty Father's voice to a happier
homo in Heaven. Such nra the senti?
ments that tio many a strong man to
South Carolina, whose nobility of soul
and strength of character, did ho leave
his native State, would insure him some
measure of success anywhere. Of all
such mea wc soy-God bless them.

DANCIER FROM EATING NUTS.-Medical
mea udvise that salt should bu tuleen with
nuts, espeoiuily wheu eaten nt night.
Once, sayo a writer, while enjoying ?.
visit from an Englishman, hickory nuts
were served ia tho evening, wheu my
English friend called for salt, stating that
he knew a case of a woman eating hearti?
ly of nuts in tho evening who was taken
violently ill. The celebrated Dr. Aber?
nethy was sent for, but it wan after he
had become too fond of his cup. ond he
wns not in a condition to go. Ho mut?
tered, "Salt, salt," of which no notice
was taken. Next morning ho went lo
this place, und she was a corpse. Hf
said that hud they given her salt, il
would bave relieved her; if they would
allow bim to make nu examination, ht
would convince them. On opetiiug thc
stomae.ii, the nuls were found in u mass
Ile sprinkled salt on this, and immo
diately it dissolved.

The following are tho comments of
the Abbeville Press and Banner upon
tho resolutions of the press conference:
"These resolutions recognize in their
fullest extent tho civil und political
equality of tho black mau-his right to
vute and his right to hold office-his
right not ouly to 'equal and exact
justice,' but to oflico and emolument
recognize all of this, not as a mere ab?
stract truth, but. as a controlling princi?
pio in the coming elections. These
resolutions give prominence to that
policy which, in the present crisis, rises
above party principles and national
issues-the prime necessity of securing
good government at home-of elevating
honest and capable men to offioe-and
this by the suffrage of 'all the citizens
of tho State, irrespective of color or
previous condition.' Hero is n plat?
form broad enough for us all to stand
''Asa matter of courso, the action of
tho couferenco is only advisory. With
a view to Borne determinate aud authori?
tative action, they suggest a meeting of
a convention of tho people on Wednes?
day, the 15th June next. We had
, thought that a later day would have
been more advisable, but wo suppose
that satisfactory reasons determined the
selection. But whatever difference of
opinion thero might be as to the time of
meeting, we had thought thero would
bu noue us to the importance of the
meeting itself. We do not understand
tho reusous which tho W Hillsboro News
suggests rather than urges, or why the
i holding a convention should involve any
arithmetical estimate of 'loss und gain,'
why it should bo necessary to lose some
Counties und gain others. If wo aro to
! gain anything at all, it is by union-by
i concerted pulposos and united efforts.
As a first and necessary step to this, we
1 must have a convention. Tho conference
. have suggested Ibo 15th Juno next, aud
* we suppose the people of the State viii
< ratify and confirm.
I "Thc News, Courier, Phoenix and (?uar
dian, and other leading papers of the
! State folly endorse aud earnestly sustaiu
tho foregoing resolutions, und wo aro
- sure that they will n waken a response
MB. EDITOR: My advioo to all good
citizens is, to register 1 register li vote II
vote!!! in the approaching city election.
There is really not so much politics in
this thing as the peace and quiet of our
homes, and the safety of the city nuances.
Tho present Mayor and Aldermen are all
good and true men, who have discharged
their duties; and the effort is without
any causo on enrth to displaco them by
an Act of legislation before their term
is out. They were elected under the
laws passed hythe present State Govern?
ment. They have, every one of them,
been put iu under the Reconstruction
Acts of Congress. Among them, there
is not a Bingle politician. They are all
plain business men. It is duo to these
men, and to the eity, that they should
be supported by all law-abiding citizens.
Leave unlawful acts to others; let good
men seek to uphold the law. The woy
to do this, is not as Gov. Scott is recom?
mending, by Winchester rifles, but by
standing peaceably for the law. The
great means the law bas placed iu your
hands. Comply with the law, register
and vote. Remember your taxes. Re?
member the city debt. Remember the
improvement of your city. Remember
its growing importance. Remember that
good men will not como and invest here,
as they have been doing in the last two
years, without a good city government.
Remember we need a stable government.
Do you want your city to improve? Do
you want your taxes to be reasonable?
Do you want peace and quiet? Then,
wo urge yon not to talk, like Gov. Scott,
of Winchester rifles to hold up your
government, State or city, but talk of
law, order, peace, prosperity and happi?
ness to all, without distinction of race or
color. We say again, register! registerl!
and wo say to von, vote!! vote!!!
