CO LUM BIA, S. C.
Thursday Morning, August 25,1870.
Tho lesaou recently taught by^North
Carolina should have a healthy and re
assuring effeot upon the Conservative
party of South Carolina. Upon the evo
of the late election, the old North State
was seemingly not lesa certainly doomed
to radicalism than is our own to-day; jot
the result of the election has been an
overwhelming defeat to the carpet-bag
hordes, foreshadowing their downfall
throughout the South, from the Potomac
to the Bio Grande. In the many safe?
guards with which the radicals have en?
deavored to prop up their party, such as
the enforcement bill, the militia bill, etc.,
they have invented weapons, which aro
donble-edged, equally as dangerous to
themselves as to their political foes. Be?
sides this, a general disgust of carpet?
bagger is rapidly spreading through tho
negro ranks. They have boen deluded
80 long with unfulfilled promises, they
find themselves so invariably cheated out
of their aspirations, discover themselves
always in the attitude of mero tools for
the elevation of strange adventurers, that
they now pause, and ask what is to be
gained by cultivating unfriendly rela?
tions with the white people of their sec?
tion, with whose interests theirs must al?
ways be identical. It neoded but this
pause in the flood-tido of madness to set
in the ebb, and it dashed through, the
ballot boxes of North Carolina, sweep?
ing away every vestige of radical potter
and influence. So will it soon sweep
across our own cane and cotton fluids,
leaving South Caroliua a regenerated
State. Now, therefore, is tho proper
time for the exercise of the utmost cau?
tion and judgment by tho Conservative
party in selecting candidates. All old,
wornout, fossilized politicians must be
repudiated. None but young, active,
capable men, free from all outaugliug
political alliances, must bo put in nomi?
nation, and thus apolitical victory iu tho
fall elections may bo assured.
Great meu are not always infallible in
their own families. We all know that
George W. caught it right hot from
Lady Martha's tongue, on occasions
when he did not too the matrimonial
mark properly. Iudeed, if we are tc
oredit traditions, the Father of his Coun?
try-our country-was made to stand
rouud quito lively whenever Martha was
iu a bad humor, and her tomper wai
none of tho sweetest, as we all hnvt
heard. Special despatches from Europe
to the New York papers affirm that thc
Empress Eugeuie is displaying some ol
the same symptoms, and, rolling up hoi
Bloeves, has "goue into" this fight like a
man. She gave tho Emperor u seven
wigging on heariug ho had sent his
horses to the front; said the idea of his
riding horseback in his present state o!
health was preposterous; declared thal
ho should only ride in a, carriage. Tc
all of which tho Emperor shrugged hil
shoulders and said nothing. After bei
return from Cherbourg, and since Na
poleou's departure, she declared her in
tention of going to tho front to tak<
care of her family, and was only re
strained with great difficulty. Wo lik<
this in Eugenie; it shows that, what
ever may be her qualities as an Empress
she is a good womau and loves her hus
band and child; that her heart is mort
sensitive to their danger than to anj
other claims. We feel that Lady Mal?
tha would havo done tho samo thiuj
nuder.similar circumstances, and wo car
pardon many thorns where a rose is fra
grant with such incense of affection,

MK. EDITOR: "There is life in tho old
land yet." That this is so, the following
faots will demonstrate: Last January
Rev. L. C. Chappell bought'a small tract
of land iu the upper part of Richland,
known ns tho "Center Place." It was a
poor, worn-out place, and had long been
abandoned ns unfit for cultivation. It
had growu up iu old field pines, broom
sedgo and briars. It was as hard a look?
ing case as ouo could find iu a mouth's
travel. Mr. Chappell and his three sous,
only one of whom is grown, went to
work, cleared, fenced and ditched fifty
acres nud planted them in boru, cotton,
sorghum aud potatoes. Ile had no
labor beside that of himself aud three
sons. Yesterday we saw his crop aud are
satisfied he will make tweuty bules cot?
ton, weighing 400 pouuds each, 400
bnsbels corn, 120 gallons sorghum, be?
sides potatoes, peas, eke. Besides this,
ho harvested about 400 bushels of wheat
and oats, which he had sown ou au ad?
joining place. See, Mr. Editor, what
well-directed iudustry can do on the
poorest, worn-out laud in South Caro?
lina. Settlojup tho Stato with sensible
working farmers like Mr. Chappell and
his boys and she toill li;-e. To Northern
and European small farmers wo would

of the (so-called) County Convention, held in

principle of rotation in office.
