"Lot our Just Censure ^^^^^^t^^^^^-^^??&p* Atlond tho True Event."
BY J. A. SELBY. COLUMBIA, S. C., TUESDAY MORNING, AUGUST S 1871. VOL. VII-NO. 120.
Th? NtccHsiiy or Organization,
Our respected cotemporary, the Keo
wee Courier, joins hands with tho N?ibs
in deprecating organization this year.
We will add a few words to what vre
have already written on this subject. If
we intend to keep up tho Democratic
party in this State, we must keep our?
selves in accord with its movements.
We are now totally disorganized, and
have been so since the dissolution of tba
Union Beform party, last fall. We
have not even a committee which could
take the initiatory steps to re-orgauize
the party, or with which tho national
committee could oonfor, even upon the
most vital and important exigency. We,|
Bupposo that tho party organizations arc
never allowed to expire in other States,
for there is always work to bo done.
Perhaps nowhere is there so much to be
done as in South Carolina. Our oppo?
nents nover slumber nor sleep. Have
they more need of vigilant and persever?
ing effort than we? Have they the pro?
mise of more and greater rewards than
we, to induce their steadfastness? We
do not agree that our people aro only
capable of a sudden and emotional effort1
in behalf of their liberties-that they
are inoapablo of earnest and sustained
labor when a proper patriotic taBk is laid
beforo them. They aro not impulsive
and impressible. On the contrary, they
are stoioal, slow to take position, and |
not readily aroused to action. There
must ba a good causo to enlist their
energies, and it must be long presented
with tho constant persistency of earnest
nesu and truth, beforo they lay hold of
it; but when they do, you may trust
them for ah impetuous, determined and
self-sacrificing devotion and constanoy
to the cause. They who took the re?
sponsibility of inaugurating tho Reform
porty, last jear, aro responsible also for
tho dissolution of the Democratic party
of this State. When they dissolved
their temporary substitute, thoy left
nothing behind but politioal anarchy, in
the face of a disciplined and triumphant
foe. An effort was then made to effect a
compact organization, which, by this
time, might, wo believe, have held in its
hand the politioal destinies of this State;
but that failed in obedience to that pro?
crastinating appeal now urged against
organization. We have not only to
unite our people, but to gain, by this
time 'next year, 10,000 votes, or we are
doomed to ruinous defeat. Tho voten we
gain are to be won, not by agitation or
pnblio appeals to popular assemblies,
bat by a concentration of assiduous
efforts npon individuals. In our opi?
nion, tho most of this work is to bo done
in the first months of next year, if we
proposo to gather the autumn fruits.
We repeat, let us organize County and
preoinots clubs of prudent and thought?
ful men, and an efiioient executive com?
mittee, active and energetic, who will
quietly and efficiently work ont the re?
sults of their own counsels. A delay
until next year, wo fear, will bo fatal to
It is worthy of consideration, too, that
tho experience of our Charleston friends
cannot be resorted to to deduce a rule of
aotion for tho State. Their ciroumstanaes
are entirely different. They operate
npon a different sort of people altogether,
and by different means. Their work
may, perhaps, be more efficiently dono in
a week or two than in a longer period.
In the rural districts we must operate
according to our own experience of the
requirements of the work. Wo com?
mend this subject moBt earnestly to the
consideration of the people. If we had
the ear of the thoughtful wefeel sure we
oould impress npon them at least a por?
tion of. our deep conviction^ of the vital
neoeasity of rallying and organizing our
forces for the victory whioh may lhere
be rendered possible. Much, of course,
of its value and expediency would de?
pend upon the use made of the organi?
zation when effected. It would not be
proper here to anticipate what might be
tho forms and modes of efficient politi?
cal work, whioh the party might see fit
to prosecute. That in their united wis?
dom they would find such work ready to
hand we have not a shadow of a doubt.
THE CHARLOTTE, COLOMBIA AND AU?
GUSTA RAILROAD.-We learn that the
Pennsylvania Central Railroad Las pur?
chased a leading interest in the above
road. With tho great wealth and influ?
ence of tho Pennsylvania corporation
added to the efficient management and
energy of the present directory of tho
Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta Bail
road, we expeot to soe a prosperous state
of affairs inaugurated for the latter. We
understood, yesterday, that the stock of
the road was on the rise, a considerable
advance, having been made in the ruling
prices of some time past.
STRIKING IT EVEN.-One of tho provi?
sions of the Ohio Sunday laws is the
exemption from arreBt for debt on Sun?
day. And so careful has been the spirit
ot Ohio legislation to extend equal privi?
leges to alt, that it has aiso provided the
Ramo exemption for Israelites on Satur?
day, their Sabbath.

INFLUENCE OF TEMPERATURE ON

tho temperature of night, and day ie greater
than at any other timo of tho year. In tho

Hinco di Hoovered that among thia description
of medioinoH, HoBtettcr'a Stomach l?tter? is
infinitely tho bebt. It gently quickens tho

cissitudes of temporal ure in our climate. Few,
if any eaaes of epidemic fever aro heard of in
localities whore it is in common UBO. AH it
bucoinoa moro and moro widely known, and
tho demand for it increases, cbiils and fever,
anti tho bilious remittent seem to recede l>e
foro it, and if ever it should come into univer?
sal uso, these diseases would ceaoo tu hu
known as tho econrges of our low-lying and
marshy di s trio t u. That homely hit of proverb?
ial philosophy, that "pitvolition is bettor
than cure,'' should ho especially boroo in
mind in tho autumn months; and indeed in
all seasons, together with tho faut, that
among all tho preventives of malarious dis?
ease, HoBtottor'a Stomach Hitters is tho
most safe aud potent.
Bo certain, however, to obtain tho pennine
article, as countless imitations of a pornieioua
character aro abroad. Kee that tho externals
are all right, and remember that HOD tetter's

AFEW reasons why they should have tho
preference over all others:
1. wheeler & Wilson's Bowing Machine is
much simpler than any of tho others; re?
quiring lees than half tho amount of ma?
2. As thc result of this simplicity, this ma?
chine in much lees liable than the* others to
get out of repair.
3. Another result of this fcimplicity ?B
4. Another result ia less friction, and, con?
sequently, greater ease and rapidity ol' mo?
tion, with less noise.
5. And greatest of all, that it uees no Shut?
tle, and makes thc lock stitch.
It ?B the cheapest to buy the best. Buy the
machine that han justly, fairly and honora?
bly won a reputation and independence
against a strong and bittcrcompctition. For
more than twenty years has tho Wheeler &
Wilson not only stood first and foremost, but
now stands tho uni i vailed Sewing Machine of
tho enlightened civilized world. Buvthe ma?
chine that has beeu thus tested anti proved,
and then you are ?ure to get tho best. For
