HORACES GREELEY, of New York.

Blect Your Best Dieu.
There are eight or nine Counties in
our State, suoh as Anderson, Fiokens,
Ooonee, Greenville, Spartanburg and
others, in which the white people have a
olear majority, and can elect whom tl. j
please to County offices, cud to repre?
sent them in the General Assembly.
The delegates from these Counties have
been, since the radical changes effected
by the Reconstruction Aots, the only
modicum of representation allowed to
the property-holderi or white citizens of
the State. They have not, heretofore,
been sufficient in numbers to prevent
mischievous or corrupt legislation by
their mere votes, and therefore none of
it is chargeable, properly, to them. Still,
they have not entirely met the expecta?
tions of the Conservative oitizens of the
State. They have generally voted right,
but, with a few honorable exceptions,
they have not been active and earnest
in their denunciations of wrongs and
frauds which were being committed
under their very noses by tbeir scheming
and venal assooiates of the Badical per?
The Republicans, indeed, have repeat?
edly charged that some of the Demo?
crats were no better than themselves,
and were equally ready to engage in illi
oit legislation when they were allowed
to share in tho spoils. We are slow to
give oredenee to such infamous charges,
especially as we know that the Demo?
crats, with very rare exceptions, recorded
their votes against all swindling mea?
sures. It serves to show, however, the
necessity for the seleotion of men of
irreproachable character, and also of
ability and experience, so far as is prac
We have had enough of half-way com?
promise men, such as the Dem?crata in
the Legislature have frequently been.
Even if they are honest and faithful to
their public trusts, they have no power,
and exert little, if any, . influence. So
far as praotioal results go, snch men
might as well Btay at home. One earn?
est, capable member, able and willing to
apeak persuasively, is worth to ns in the
present General Assembly a dozen ordi?
nary men, of small calibre, who conflue
tbeir legislative efforts to voting aye or
nay upon the questions as they are put.
A gentleman of high character and
ability will command the respect and
esteem of the very worst men, and will
exeroise a powerful influence over them.
The voice of one honeBt man will put to
flight a legion of thieves. In ordinary
times, electors may be allowed to gratify
their personal preferences for individuals
io the selection of public officers, without
serious detriment to the interests of the
community. Now, however, when at
best we can secure but a small minority
in the Legislature, it is incumbent upon
every good oitizen to Bet all other con?
siderations aside, and vote nut for the
mun he may like best, but for him who,
he knows, will be able to render tbo best
servioe to the State.
There have been two causes, in our
judgment, which have heretofore hin?
dered the white Counties from selecting,
in all cases, their ablest and best men to
represent them in the State Government.
In the first place, gentlemen of cha
i toter, such ns had been wont in better
days, when public office was a mark of
distinction and honor, to accept posi?
tions, were disinclined to be thrown in
with such a disreputable crew as they
knew would be congregated at the State
In the second place, tho best mon in
our State were, as a rule, the most pro?
minent in the war, and those, too, who,
from an advanced age, were not active
participants in the clash of arms, were
identified with the past history of the
It was very generally oonoeived that
men like these would be especially dis?
tasteful to the negroes, and with a view,
therefore, to counting the negro vote
where the majorities were small, second
rate, compromise men were fixed upon
We trost this short-sighted polioy will
be no longer pursued. Tho Democratic
or Conservativo members of the Legisla?
ture are our forlorn hope. Each one
should be a tower of strength in him?
self. Greenville has led off in the right
direction by plaoing B. F. Ferry at thc
bead of her tioket. We hope the other
Oounties will follow her good example,
and send none but pure and, as far oe
they can, able and influential representa?
tives to the Legislators.

TKO Bollar?' Address.
We publish, this morning, the address
whioh the "True Republicans," or Or?
ites, have made to the citizens of the
State. Though containing nothing new,
it is a capital address, as coming from
Republicans. Tho charges therein set
forth of corruption, fraud and venality
against the present State Government,
have appeared, time and again, in the
columns of this and other Conservative
journals throughout the State. They
come, however, with greater force from
a body of Republicans, for there are hu?
miliating confessions of the misdeeds of
their own political associates, and are,
therefore, undeniable. Whether the
bolters will do any better than the un?
bolted, remaiua to be seen. Their State
ticket ia certainly far preferable. But
what about the Legislature? How is
that to be reformed? Other men may
be selected, but they must be inexperi?
enced and uneducated negroes. They
will be poor, too, and when subjeoted to
the same temptations as their predeces?
sors, upon what rational grounds can we
hope that they will not yield, too, to tbe
glittering allurement of the gold of the
lobbyists, who will swarm around them
with their jobs and schemes to "develop
the resources of the State?"
THE WEST VIRGINIA. EJECTION.-The
latest returns from West Virginia indi?
cate the eleotion of Jacobs, the present
incumbent, who ran as an independent
Democrat, over Camden, the regular no?
minee. The now Constitution, upon
whioh the people also voted, is still in
doubt. ?s generally conceded hitherto,
the result of this eleotion can have no
bearing upon the Presidential election,
the issues being generally of a local cha?
racter. The Republicans having no
ticket of their own, voted the independ?
ent ticket, whioh, it is stated, represent?
ed also the mass of the Liberal party.
THE RIOHT OP A PHOTOGRAPHER TO
EXHIBIT PORTRAITS.-The New York
A case that is of interest to almost
everybody-at least to those who think
enough of their personal appearance to
have themselves photographed-came up
before Judge James W. Fowler, of the
Third District Court, Friday morning.
From tho evidence in the case, it seems
that an artist named Carl Heoker took a
photograph of a Mrs. Wilson, and kept
the negative in his possession, as is the
oastom among photographers. Not a
great while after this, the husband of
the lady was stopped in the street by a
friend, who informed him that Heoker
had a large painting of his wife on exhi?
bition in his gallery, for business pur?
poses. Becoming very much enraged at
the artist's "impertinence," as he styled
it, he at once repaired to his place of
business, and after making sure that the
beautiful painting of his wife, whioh was
not yet removed from the artist's easel,
bad been painted from her original pho?
tograph, the infuriated husband at onoe
said he would give the astonished artist
jost live minutes to choose between re?
moving the pioture at once or have it
rent io a hundred ribbons. The artist at
once said he would remove it to Mr.
Wilson's residence, which he did. The
artist's assignee now sues Mr. Wilson for
890, which amount he alleges Wilson
agreed to pay for it. Aooording to
Hecker'o story, Wilson, upon seeing the
picture, offered him 390 for it, if he
would but chango the expression of the
mouth; bot in consequence of the illness
of Mrs. Wilson, it had never been done.
Still the pioture was in Mr. Wilson's pos?
session. It seems there were two large
paintings made-one taken for a lady
friend, which was also in the house of
Wilson-and in consequence the evi?
dence of witnesses was decidedly mixed.
The question, which has never before
been raised-whether a person paying
for a photograph has a right to the nega?
tive, aud whether an artist who has un
eye for tine features has a right, in case
one of his customers happenu to bo a
woman of peculiar beauty, to exeoute a
large painting for business purposes
was ono which Judge Fowler took under
consideration. He reserved his decision,
giving the counsel on either side the pri?
vilege of submitting any briefs bearing
upon the question.
SINGULAR CATTLE DISEASE.-The farm?
ers of Berks County, Pa., report a singu?
lar disease among the oattle. Within a
few weeks, a number have gone blind,
some in one eye, but.most of them in
both eyes. One farmer has twelve head,
some entirely blind, and others partially
so. One calf, at three days old, never
out of the stable, lost its sight. On
some farms two, three and four are vic?
tims of the disease. The nerve of the
eye seems to die from within, and the
eye becomes white. Horses have thus
far evoaped the ailliotion.
THE CATERPILLARS TN FLORIDA.-Mr.
P. B. H. Dudley, a successful and expe?
rienced planter, writes from Archer,
Alaobua County, one of the finest sea
island cotton regions of East Florida,
that the caterpillars have brought terrible
havoc in the cotton fields, so that he
doubts whether half a crop will be made.

MB. EDITOH: On the night of the 19th,
some of the young citizsDs were rather
jubilant from having partaken too freely
of refreshments at the Republican cau?
cus. Being somewhat noisy and demon?
strative on the street, they were accosted
by a policeman, (Henry Goodwin,) who
ordered them to appear at the Mayor's
Court the next morning. As this was
their first offence, his Honor discharged
them, after hearing the case. On the
same night, (the 19th.) this policeman
was found by some of theao young men
asleep on his post. They took from him
his hat, belt, club, badge and handker?
chief, withoat awakening him. Perhaps
he, too, had attended that caucus. For
this, he was arraigned before the Mayor,
and fined 32.59. Policemen should be
cautious how they rudely accost citizens
for the same offence of whioh they them?
selves are guilty. CITIZEN.
A FEATCBE OF CITY LIFE.-A profes?
sional gentleman, well known m this
city, had not seen his son for a long
period of timo, owing to the fact that
the latter retired to bed ero the former
returned home, and in tho morning the
father always loft home before the son
got out of bed. One morning tho lady
of the house managed to got the father
und son together at the breakfast table,
and by way of a joke remarked: "Son,
let mo introduce you to your father."
"How do you do, father?" said the hope?
ful. "I don't remember ever having met
you before, but I have heard ma speak

Edith Challis, a well-known actress in
London and New York, while traveling
some months since, was very attentive to
an old lady, who fell ill on the journey
and subsequently died. Las? week Miss
Challis was greatly astonished at receiv?
ing a letter from her executors, to the
effeot that the kindness shown to the old
lady had resulted in her being remem?
bered in her will to the extent of a clear
?2,000 a year for life. In consequence
of this she retires from the stage."

the late Archduchess Sophia. Again and

try; but one night he came up with the
specter and thrust his bayonet into his
back. Then it turned out to be a beard?

He proved to be mortally wounded, and,
what is remarkable is, that the soldier
who killed him has been locked up in an
isolated cell, while the court maintains
rn absolute silence on the event.

GREAT EASTERN MENAGERIE, MUSEUM
ANS CIRCUS.-This colossal and popular
establishment, the largest, we believe, in
the country, is wending its way in this
direction, and will play in Columbia,
giving three exhibitions, on Wednesday,
September ll. No institution on the
road has ever given, or can give, tho im?
mense amount of satisfaction that the
Great Eastern does. The fact alone that
it spreads three aores of tents, six in
number, is evidence sufficient of its gi?
gantic proportions; but when we remem?
ber that these immense pavilions are well
Ulled with moral and instructive amuse?
ment, then some idea of the grandness
of this affair can be formed. Six tents
will furnish just six limes the amount of
amusement we generally get, besides
affording capacity abundant for all who
wish to go, thus obviating the terrible
jam and crush usually occurring at such
places. To tell the wonders of the zoo?
logical, and ornithological, and curious
collections, would take more space than
we can allow. The well paid and trusted
agents of this great show have explored
every land where startling attruotions
can be found, and secured everything
worth purchase, regardless of cost. The
jangles of India, the forests of Africa,
the sand deserts of Arabia, the palace
pens of Egypt, have all given np their
natural treasures to make complete the
elegant menagerie, caravan and hippo?
drome of the Great Eastern. The dou?
ble circuB performance by a renowned
double troupe of acrobats, gymnasts,
equestrians, voltiguer?, posturers and
clowns, at the samo hour, in separate
tents, strikes us as bomethiog new and
startling in the annals of the arena. The
separate orchestra, brass bands and
corps of performers ara all complete.
We look for an immense outpouring of
the people. Messrs. W. W. Durand and
Scott, the popular agents, were in this
city, yesterday, making the necessary ar?
rangements for the mammoth show.
TARTON'S LIFE OF GREELEY.-This is
one of the most notable books of the
times, and decidedly one of the best
written and remarkably interesting of
American biographies. "We do not pro?
pose to review it from a political stand?
point, for it is not designed ns a mere
campaign book, but a work of standard
value, from the pen of a writer of estab?
lished reputation, whose biographies of
all eminent Americans are well known
and highly valued. Mr. Parton's writ- '
inga are all attractive on account of the
oare he exercises in collecting incidents,
and the ingenuity with which he weaves
them into the story of a life, to relieve
the tedium of dry faets and monotonous
narrations. Such a work cannot be re?
viewed in the compass of an ordinary
book notice, and it is therefore best to
simply inform the reader, that it was
commenced several years ago, before Mr.
Greeley was thought of as a Presidential
oandidate, and faithfully written as one
volume in the series of Parton's biogra?
phies, simply for its general interest and
intimate connection with the history of
the country, for near half a century.
Commencing with his birth, and follow?
ing him through all the vicissitudes of
early years of trial and adversity, the
Behool which developed the wonderful
power that marks his riper years, and
carried him forward to the time when the
people honored him with the nomination
for the highest place in our land. Not
written in the interest of party, it is a
full and impartial history, entirely free
from partisan bias, and worthy a place
in every library in the land. As a book
of reference, a guide to young men and
an incentive to renewed activity for
every aspiring mind. The volume is a
large duodeoimo, elegantly bohnd and
appropriately illustrated, and is Bold
through the canvassing agenta of the
National Publishing Company, Atlanta.
All things considered, and all political
predilections aside, it appears to na one
of tho best and most generally desirable
hooks of the year.
