"Lot our Jnot Censure ^j^^i^r^^&^raS^fci. A'.: nd the True Event."
BY J. A. SELBY COLUMBIA. 8. C.. WEDNESDAY MORNING, JANUARY 20. 1871 VOL. VI-NO. 264.
. 'Eke.ujude?tifne? were ; ?appointed. IS
committoo, by the citizens of Lauron s
Gouq ty, foi waijt, upon Governor Scott,
sud. lay before him what we regarded
the true history of tho unfortunate
occurrences of tho 20th October lust.
This we did on the 5th of November,
at no little personal icoonvonienco, and
as the sole object of onr mission was to
give correct information to the Execu?
tive, we simply reported, on our return,
that we had discharged this duty fally
and frankly. Wo fiud, however, that
thero are rumors circulating through the
country, seriously affecting tho good
faith of Governor Scott, in reference to
this mission, and ns we know them te
be unauthorized and unfounded, we
deem it an aot of simple justice both to
the Governor and the committee, to
make the following statement:
The Governor received us with the
utmost consideration, in his own honso,
and listened with the greatest respect
arid commendable patience to all we
read aloud to him and to all we had to
say. In reply, he expressed his gratifi?
cation in thus meeting us, remarking
that if the same confidence hnd been
manifested in times past, on the part of
tho citizen? of the jBtate, much of tho
troubles, of which wo complained, would
have been avoided. Capt. Estes, at
that time commanding tho United States
troops at this place, accompanied us to
Oolnmbia, and was present nt this inter?
view. The first practical poiut discussed
was the disposition to be made of tho
publio arms, seized by order of the
Court, and at that timo scattered through
the country. Tho committeo assured
the Governor that these arms were re?
tained by the citizens, mainly through
the fear that they would be re-issued to
the colored militia companies, if rc
turned. He then directed Capt. Estes
to box and forward thom to Columbin,
as fast as they should come in, nud the
aommittee, on their part, pledged them?
selves to use all their influence to have
them brought in ns soon as possible
This was certainly carried out in good
? faith, as the committee know that all the
arms thus returned-some hundred or
more-were promptly forwarded to Co
lumbia. Wo also believe that most, if
not all these arms would now bo sufely
boxed in Oolumbia, but for subsequent
developments over which tho Governor
had no control.
Tho committeo also assured the Go
vernor that our citizens had ceased to
look upon the constabulary force ns legi?
timate peace oflicers, nud to respect their
authority as such. That they had suf?
fered themselves to be used us mere
party tools in tho hands of despicablo
political leaders, and any effort to make
arresta by them would inevitably lead to
further nets of violence. On the other
hand, they assured him that tho United
States Marshal could rido through tho
length and breadth of the County, in
perfect security, and make whatever ar?
rests he pleased to make.
The Governor thea assured us that it
was his purpose to disband tho whole
constabulary force in the State, and that
none of them would bo sent to make ar?
rests in Laurens. This promise, too, ho
has faithfully observed. Ho then asked
the very natural question, why tho citi?
zens themselves had made no eil'ort to
arrest those accused of murder and other
outrages iu the country? Tho commit?
tee replied that these parties were un?
known to the public, and that the cha?
racter of an informer has alway? been
regarded as odious in this State. That
whenever a felonious killing occurred, it
was expected that tho friends of the de?
ceased would take the necessary stops to
bring the guilty parties to justice. Tho*
trial justices were all of his own ap?
pointment, and tho sheriff and other
peaoe officers were ready to execute any
warrants that might bo placed in their
hands. But no such efforts had hereto?
fore been made.
With the most positive declaration on
the part of the committee that our citi?
zens would rather court than shun a fair
judicial investigation into all tho facts of
the recent deplorable outbreak, and with
an assurance, on his part, that the cuses
wonld be tried iu our own County, the
The committee left the Governor im?
pressed with the belief that ho was only
anxious, faithfully and impartially, to
discharge his Executive functions; and
they bespeak for him, ai iu duty buuud,
an open approval of all snell nets.

THU ST WHAT TIME HAS SANCTION?
ED.-Tho maxim that tho voice of tho people
in tho voice of tho divinity, may, in eomo
caeos, be open to doubt, but tho testimony of
honest and enlightened witnesses extending
through a series of years, and all to tho samo
purport, is worthy of credence, admits of no
question. Upon snell testimony tho reputa?
tion of Hostetter'8 Stomach DitterB as an
antidoto and cure for many ailments is based.
During tho twenty yoarB that it has hoon be?
fore thc world, innumerable preparations in?
tended to compete with it havo gouo up like
rockets, and como down tho extinguished
sticks. Meanwhile, tho progress of that in?
comparable tonic haB boen swift and steady
always upward and onward like tho eagle's
flight. Ita introduction produced a revolution
in therapeutics, and it proved to bo ono of
thoso salutary revolutions that cannot go
backwards. To-day Uoatetter's Hitters is ono
of tho most popular remedios in Christen?
dom, and commands a larger salo titan any
other medicinal preparation, domestic or im
ported, on this eido of tho Atlantic. As i
euro for dyspepsia, bilious disorders, nervous
affections, general debility, and as a prevent?
ivo of epidemic fevers, it taken precedence of
every other remedy. This fact should teach
the ambitious country dealors who endeavor
lo foist their local abortions on the public in
its stead, how futile their small attempts to
cajole the community must necessarily bo.

to ao to Florida, in Winter.-Having for
tho laBt thirty-five years devoted my wholo
timo and attention to the study of long die
oases and consumption, I feel that I under?
stand fully tho course that ought to bo pur?
sued to restore a tolerably bad case of diseased
lungs to hoalthy Roundness. The drat and
moat important step is for tho patient lo
avoid taking cold, and tho best of all places
on this continent for this purpose in winter,
is Florida, well down in tho State, whero tho
temperature is regular, and not subject to
such variations as in more Kort horn latitudes.
Palatka is a point I can recommend. A good
hotel is kept there by Petcrman. Last win?
ter I saw several persone thero whoso lungs
had been badly diseased, but who, under the
healing influence of the climate and roy medi?
cines, were getting well.
Ono hundred miles further doMii thc river
is a point which I would prefer to Palalka, aa
thc temperature ii more even and tho air dry
and bracing. Mellonvillo aud Entcrpriee are
localed there. I should give a decided pre?
ference to Mellonvillc. It is two milca from
river or lakn, and it seems almost impossible
to take cold thero. Tho tables in Florida
might bo belier, and patients complain at
times, but that is a good sign, as it indicates
a roturu of appetite, and when this is thc case
they generally increase in flesh, and then thc
lungs must heal.
Jacksonville, Hibernia, Oreen Cove, and
many othor places in various parts of Florida,
can bo safely recommended to consumptives
in winter. My reasons for saying BO aro that
patients aro less liablo to take cold there than
whero thero is a leas oven temperature, and il
is not necessary to say that where a consump?
tive person exposes himself to frequent colds,
ho io certain to die shortly. Therefore, my
advico is, go well down into tho State, out ol
tho reach of prevailing EaBt winds and fogs.
Jacksonville, or almost any other of the lo?
calities I have named, will benefit those who
aro troubled with a torpid livor, a disordered
stomach, deranged bowels, soro throat or
cough, but for those whoso lunga arc diseased,
a moro ?Southern point is earnestly recom?

Philadelphia every week, whero I saw and ex?
amined on an average fivo hundred patients a
week. A practico BO extensive, embracing
every possible phase of lung diseaec, haB ena?
bled mo to understand tho disease fully, and
heneo my caution in regard to taking cold. A
person may take vast quantities of "Schcnck's
Pulmonic Syrnp, Seaweed Tonic and Man?
drake Pills," and yet die if he docB not avoid
In Florida, noarlv everybody ia ueing
j Schenck'u Mandrake Pills, for the o'.imatc is
more likely to prodnco bilious habits than
moro Nor! bern latitudes. It is a well estab?
lished fact that natives of Florida rarely dio
of consumption, especially those of tho South?
ern part. On tho oilier hand, in Now Eng?
land, one-third, at least, of tho population
die ot this terrible disease. In tbe Middle
States it does not prevail BO largely, Btill
thero are. many thousands of cases there.
What a vast percentage of lifo would be saved
if consumptives were as easily alarmed in re?
gard to taking fresh cold as they are about
scarlet fever, small-pox, Ac. lint they are
not. 'J bey take what they term a little told,
wi Hi they are credulous enough to bnliove
will wear oil in a few dava. They pay no at?
tention to it, and hellen it lays the foundation
for another and anotlu-i still, nntil thu lungs
are diseased beyond ail hopo for cure.
My advice to porsons whoso lungs are
affected oven slightly is, to lay in a stock of
Sclicnck's Pulmonic Syrup, Scbenck's Rca weed
Tonic and Scbenck's Mandrake Tilla and go
to Florida. 1 recommend these particular
medicines because 1 am thoroughly acquaint?
ed with their action. I know that whet et tiley
ure used in strict accordance with n.y direc
tioiiH, they will do the work that is rc quired.
This accomidished, nature will do the rest.
'J he physician who prescribes for cold, congh
or night-sweats, and then advises ihn patient
to walk er l ido ot.t every day, will be eui u to
liltvo a <urpse on his hand? before long.
My plan is to give my three medicine?, in
accordance \\i:':i tho printed direction?, ix
cept in sonic e .?os where u, freer nae of the
Mandrake- Pi'.!* ii necessary. My object is to
give tone to the stomach-lo get upa good
appetite, lt is al wat a a good sign when a
patient begins to grow hungry. 1 have, hopes
of such. With a relish for food ?i d the
graiitioati' n ot that relish comes good blood,
and with it more flesh, which is closely fol?
lowed by a healing of the lunge. Thin the
cough loo?! ns and abates, the creeping chills
and clammy night-sweats no longe r prostrate
and annoy,*and tho patient gots wei!, piovid
ed he avoids taking cold.
Now mero aro many consumptives who have
not the meinia to go to Florida. The qm ?Hon
may be asked, is there no hope lor auobV
Certainly there is. My advico to such i?. and
over lias been, tn stay in a warm roe ni during
the winter, with a temp?rature of abont
Boveuty degrees, which should bo kept
regularly at that point, hy means nf a ther?
mometer. Let such a patient take; hiB e-x
ercise within tho limits of tho room by walk?
ing up and down as much us his strength will
permit, in order to keep up a health? circnla
tiou of the blood. I have cured thousands
by this system, and can do so ogain. Con?
sumption in as easily cured au any other
disease, if tuken iii time, and the proper kind
of treatment is pursued. The fact ?tumis
nndiepntod on record that Scbenck's Pulmo?
nie Syrnp, Mandrake Fills, and Seaweed '1 onie
have cured very many of what soi med to be
hopeless esses of consumption. Oo where
you will, you will he almost certain to find
some poor consumptive ?bo has boen rescued
1 from the very jaws of death by their uso.
So tar as tho Mandrake Pills aro concerned,
everybody should keep a supply of them on
hand. They act on the live r better than calo?
mel, and leave none of its hurtful effects be?
llina. In fact, they are excellent in ul) cases
whero a purgative medicino ia required, ll
yon have partaken too freely of fruit and
dian lo < a ensues, a dose of the Mandrakes
will cure yon. If you urti subject to Bick
headache, luke a demo of tho Mandrakes and
they will relit v? yon in two hours. If yon
would obviate; the effect of a change of w ater
or the too free indulgence in finit, take
one of thc mandrakes every night or cverj
oilier eight, and ye.ii may then drink wate'i
I and eat watermelons, pears, apples, plums
j pe aches or corn, w it bout the risk of being siel
i by them. The y will protect those who live ii
damp situations against chilla and fevers
Try them. They uro perfectly harmless
They eau do yon good only.
