THU COLORED CONVENTION.-Mention
hasbcou mado of acoDveution of colored
men, to meet at Columbia, S. C., on Oc?
tober 18tb, professedly to consider
'?matters affecting tbo welfare of tbe
oolored race." The colored mon of Mis?
sissippi held a convention at Jaoksou on
tho 31st ultimo, for tho purpose of elect?
ing delegates to the nutional body.
Three resolutions were udoptcd-first,
"ro-afBrmiug our devotion to President
Grunt, and pledging our undivided sup?
port to tho Republican party in the elec?
tion of 1872;" second, endorsing Gov.
Alcorn, and third, tendering thanks to
tho "Hon. Charles Sumner for his able
defenco in behalf of justice, liborty and
truth." This ?B tho first oflioial defini?
tion of tho specific "matters affecting
the welfare of the oolored ruco" which
are to be aonsidered in tho philanthropic
? . ? ? -
JroaE O. B. FARMER- A GOOD AP?
POINTMENT.-Among tho late Executive
appointments, we uotico that of Mr.
Oh arl os Baring Farmer, to he Judge of
the Second Circuit, vice Judge Z. Platt,
(deceased. Mr. Farmer is a nativo of
Oolloton, and one of the old landlords of
the County. Soon aftor oompleting his
eduoation, he began tho study of law,
and for over eighteen years has been a
practicing lawyer at tho Colinton bar.
For a number of years before tho war,
he held the position of Oommissioner in
Equity, and discharged the duties of
Ibis important post with an ability and
courtesy which gave universal satisfac?
tion. After the war, he served for a
time as District Judge for Colinton, but
has since resumed tho praotioo of tho
law. He is also engaged ia planting in
the lower part of the County. Judge
Farmer is a Democrat of liberal views,
and his oharaoter, ia public and private,
is unimpeached. He is now about forty,
sevoa years of age, and has a large
family in Walterboro. His appointment
will, no doubt, bo advantageous to the
interests of the State, and give Eatisfac
tiou to all parties iu the circuit.

THAT TIDAL WAVE.-Tho great "tidal
wave" which Boroo papers have "evolved
from their inner conciousness" ns to tuke
place on October 5th, and havo credited
to Agassiz as a prediction, is creatiug
quito as much interest on somo parts ol
our Atlantic coast us tho second advent
prognostications of Cummings and Mil?
ler. It is now less than u mouth to thc
time whou this great rush of waters will
be upoa us, from Florida to Muiuc, and
it is high time we were making prepara?
tions to receive it. On another simihu
occasion, namely, thc first great deluge,
our ancestor, Noah, had a warning ol
many years. Considering, therefore, th<
extent of the expected flood, our notice
is a very short one. Acoording to th?
alleged calculations of the learned pro
lessor, this wave is to sweep the wholi
Atlantio coast, "to the height of lift;
feet or more, OD the night of the 5th o
the morning of tho Gth of October.'
We should think some folks along shon
would be likely to get wet, under the cir
eumstances. Will not the "groat dee]
give up" much that is buried beneath it
turbid waters on the occasion? It wa

Mn. EDITOR: In the Daily Union, of
tho 9th instant, I notice, a communica?
tion over tho signature of "Josh," in
which he tries to hold Lexington County
up in a ridiculous light, by calling it the
..State of Lexington."
From the bending of tho piece, wo
would judgo that bia "rambles" and so?
journ in our laud of shoddy, chivalry,
Ku Klux and coru whiskey, hud been
eutirely in Lexington. But iu rondiug
tho piece, we find that ho was only in
Columbia, and from thence took in his
enlarged eyes and understanding, at one
viow, tho whole "State of Lexington,''
and instead of telling us what he thinks
of the "Stuto of Lexington," wo hud
him telling us that he is iu tho Girard
Uouso, on Chesuut street, in the city of
Philadelphia. In "whut ho thinks of
tho State of Lexington," he is very po
etio, and paints in glowing colors tho
panoramic beuuties of Chusnut street.
Tho people of Lexington have always
I boon noted for their modesty-never as?
suming moro to themselves thnn is justly
duo them. Shu admits a wont of intel?
ligence; she does not. claim tho wisdom
of some of our young Solomons iu thu
way of getting tho people's money out
of the State Treasury. But thou Lex?
ington is Democratic, and consequently
ii very quiet sud law-abiding-so much
so that the Daily Union has not beeu
able to make ont a single case of vio?
lence, much less murder, by which, if
possible, to keep the Northern mind
fired up against Us. "Josh," in his
"rambles" North, would, no doubt, like
to tell some horrible tales of Ku Klux
and murder committed in Lexiugtou,
and is watching the Union closely.
A KICK AT CIVIL BIGHTS.-Tho Wash?
ington Chronicle has tue following card:
To THE EDITOR OF THE CHRONICLE: On
the 31st of August, 1871, Hon. lt. B.
Elliott dined, by invitation, with a gen?
tleman, at the place known as "The Na?
tional Dining Saloon," on Twelfth
street. A mau by the name of Samuel
E. Clark, of Ohio, now a clerk in tho
Post OlHco Department, caused conside?
rable disturbance about the matter.
Said Clark claims that a "nigger" hus
no right to dine at a restaurant where ho
takes his meals; and also stated that if
he (Clark) "hud $300 in his pocket to
parchase the Court with, that he would
take a ohair and break tho d- nigger's
head." lam iuformed that Clark was
dismissed from the Treusary Depart?
ment on tho ground that ho was u Demo?
crat of the worst sort.
ONE WHO WAS PRESENT.
A Washington letter to the Baltimore
Sun naya: "Seoator Scott's representa?

from his own party friends. A complete

that no less than live Kopublicuu, Fede?

ouly have no outruges been committed
in that section since the Ku Klux com?

Alderman Wallace arose and said: A.
Mayor, prior to tho question being tal;
on the adoption of tho report, I deni
to present tho following protest agaii
tho erodion of a now market, whicl
hopo will be read by tho Clerk. (T
protest and names of signers were rent
You will observe that tho protest bec
the .signatures of four-fifths of tho i
sponsible tux-pnj'ors of Columbia, a
wo should not pass over their proti
lightly. It should bo considered se
ously. They recite in their potiti
their assent to the building of a now ci
hall, and au addition to tho prose
market, if necessary. Would it not
best to delny building a now market f
tho present? It is too much to take up
ourselves just now. I again ropeut, tl
this strong protest of our citizens shot
bo carefully considered, for it is up
thom aud their friends that wo mny hu
to depend for tho ways lind means
linish a now market. I am an ndvoci
of improvements, and wish wo coi
build tho market, but I deem it pro|
that wo should forego either the hall
Alderman Wigg said bo favored the
erection of tho new market, as the pre
Buut market is entirely inadequate for
market purposes. Applications for rent?
ing of stalls are daily mude and refused,
because there are no vacant stalls. He
knew this, as he has, for Borne months,
boen endeavoring to obtain a stull for a
frieud. Thu old market hus fully puid
for itself, nud is now a source of reve?
nue, aud he would here assert that if the
new market was erected to day, every
stull could bu rented. As to the ways
uud menus, he would sttttu that it is not
the bug-bear some people would make it
appear, as the amount of cash on deposit
in bank to-day, and thu revenue from
tuxes (und no increased rate of tux) in
January, will build both thu hall and
market. To usu a common expression,
he would Hay the city is not broke. He
respected the petition, but could not vote
to reconsider his action iu tho premises.
He would move that tho petition be re?
ferred to Committee on Market.
Tho petition was so referred,
j Thu question being taken on the
[udoptiou of tho report ol the Committee
ou New Market, it was agreed to.
Alderman Cooper introduced the fol?
lowing r?solution, which WHS adopted:
Resolved, That the sum of ?100 bo ap?
propriated to tho City Physician for the
pttrchuso of medicines for tho iudigenl
Alderman Wigg introduced tho foilow
iug resolution, which was adopted:
Resolved, That a special committeo of

tion with thu Committee on Streets, bo
instructed to have the streets and drains
