Tho Ingrute is au embodied argu
ment in support of the doctrine of total
depravity, for associated with thai
base attribute, ingratitude, are selfish
ntss and hypocrisy, ami they act to
gether, like blood hounds held in
leash, constituting a monster not un
like the mythological Cerberucs ?f the
Greeks. He is a dog with three heads,
oar king when the hack of his benn
faclor it turned nnd stinging with his
serpent's tail when he can t!o so with
safety to his person. Unfortunately
for society no modern Orpheus can
soothe him to sleep with his lyre, and
no modern Hercules can drag him to
the gates of the infernal regions.
Senator Thad. C. Andrews, of Or

charged with libeling G. A. Neu Her
and gave bail for his apporraiice.
Under the heading of'The day of

ly to take it for granted that Senator
Audrews did libel Neu Her. Wait
Brother Gilbert and hear from the

The ballot between Barn well and
Blackville has been fought, but tin;
smoke of it still lingers to becloud the
promise of good feeling in that
County. It seems that aftoi Black
ville won the light squarely and
honestly,? there were some men mean
enough to spirit away the ballot boxes,
and poll lists, and burn them. What
could have been ihc object of these
men we do not know, unle.'S it was to
overthrow the expressed will of the
people of that County. ?Such flank
movements as these, cannot he too
severely condemned ; and wo trust
that the guilty parties will be caught,
and dealt with roughly. In Barnwcll
Count)', like 11 other Counties,
there area few old fogies, and spavined
politicians, w'io want to have matters
there own way, and who will sanction
any measure which may have for its
purpose the accomplishment of their
^^.iffcrn^aatafio -tubas, iik^i lOTr-l'
get that things have changed in this
Country, and that what suited it
twenty years ago, is obsolete und un
acceptable to the people of today.
"We want young, live and vigorous men
to run this Country now, and those
old fellows who have had their day,
should quietly withdraw from the
stage and remain passive. It is cer
tain they will never obtain again the
control they once had over this land.
The)- are laid upon the shelf, and the
people will sec to it that they shall re
main there. Soinc-of them have been
endeavoring to make war in Bare well,
but thoir efforts were, too puny to
affect much. Their influence for evil,
however, is left, and thai is all. They
are liko troublosomo old women?
will have their mouths into every
body's business, and neglect their own.
This is exactly- the trouble in Barn
well County. The liberal, progressive,
and active sentiment of that County,
is in favor of Blackville. for the Court
House; the old gran da in politicians
arc against it. Such persons do not
enre for the wishes of ihe people. In
their own conceit they imagine that
they alone arc capable of judging
what is best for the Country, and
would wink at the burning of ballot
boxes, or anything else, that was at
war with their gouty ideas.
But this is none of our fight, and
but for our aversion to unfair means
and measures being used to ac
complish one's purposes, wc should
have said nothing against the burning
of the ballot boxes at Barnwcll. We
hope that ihc matter will be thorough
ly investigated, and that the names of
every one connected with such an in
famous act, will be given to the public.
Blackville triumphed fairly, and
should not be robbed of her laurels
by unprincipled partisans of Barnwcll.
Stuff,?We know of no greater
humbug than the lachrymose demon
strations of our memorial celebrations.
They arc very good in theory but
very poor in actual results; When
