The Convention Last Saturday.
? ~< .
As previousely announced the Con
vention to elect fivo delegates to the
Columbia Convention, which trans
pireson the 11th inst., was held in
this placo on Saturdny last. County
Chairman S. L. Duncan called the
delegates to order, and announced
the object of .the meeting in a brief ad
dress. Then came the fight for tem
porary Chairman and secretary.
Representative S. L. Duncan and
Sheriff E. I. Cain, were put in nomi
nation by their respective "friends for
Chairman, and Representative W. H.
Reedish and Mr. T. K. Sasportas for
secretary. There being a contesting
dclegatio." from Shcrifl Cain's pro
cinct, it was ruled by the chair that if
elected he could not take the scat.
Hence Mr. Duncan was elected with
out' much opposition. Mr. T. K.
Snsportns walked over the track for
temporary secretary, Mr. Reedish
having withdrawn in his favor. After
this a committee of thirteen on creden
tials was appointed, of which A. F.
Browning Esq. was chairman." All
the credentials were referred to this
committee, and the convention took a
recess until such time as the Commit
tee signified their readiness to report
This recess was occupied by the sup
porters of Cain and Duncan in but
ton-holing delegates, and stuffing
them with the merits of one or the
other of these leader?. About 3
o'clock in the afternoon rumor was rife
that Cain would be elcctod perma
nent Chairman. It is but fair to say
that'the Duncanitcs were equally as
sanguine of the success of their cho
The convention convened again
a little after 4 o'clock on the niter
noon when the committee on creden
tials ?mode their report, seating the.
Caldwell delegation. This sent Cain's
stock up, and thu Cainitcs at
tested their joy by shouts of "Hurrah
for oux JSheriffl Cain, forever, hoys !"
&c. A permanent organization was
commenced by Cain and Duncan
being put in nomination for the
chairmanship. At this point Cain
rose to a question of privilege and
stated that there appeared a statement
in the Free Citizen in [regard to him
which was. false. The publication
was made.;to injure him and to dc
After a good deal of wt angling
and speech making, the vote was
called and-resulted in favor of Cain
for Chairman5 by a voto of 4S to 2G.
The unnbuno'emcut wnsrcccivcd with
deafening applause by the Convec
tion. Hfr. T.*K. Sasportas was elec
ted permanent secretary .without any
opposition and-Mr. V. Culler Assis
Au'ele^'Ubri ior fivo delegates was
then ^^Jinto, and duL of twenty-five
or thirty nominations, E. I. Cain, S.
Li. Duncnn, 1\ E. Jone?, Shed i nch
Morgan - and John If. Livingston
were chosen. The claims of Solomon
Felder were strongly advocated by
A. F.'Browning, Esq., hut there be
ing so many candidates before the
Convention the requisite' member
were elected before his name on the
roll was reached.
Upon the whole of it, the selection
made by the convention is a good
ouo, being strong anil representative
in character, and withal moderate
but unflinchingly Republican.
Sheriff Cain is certainly a very
strong man, while Mr Livingston is a
ti uc type of the advanced thinkers
and intelligent whites of his party.
Mcssrdf Lhincnn, Jones and Morgan
are also hard workers, and have the
confidence6f the people.
Before-.closing it is but proper to
say that the noise heard in ihc con
vention, c?va^9 ..made principally by
those who)were admitted upon the
floor nS'tfpectatorg, and who violaled
the privilege extended to them by
endeavoring to participato in the
proceedings of the Convention.
Neeini! C. W. Caldwell and T. K. |
Sasportas were elected alternates to
the Convention. This is a good se
Tho answer to the rule for con
tempt issued against W. A. Courtney,
Esq., of Charleston, was heard on
Wednesday" last. Judge Reed post
poned further action in the matter to
a day yd to be determined upon.
From the Other Side.
A correspondent writing to the
Nctos and Courier, under date 1st.
iust., hnB tho following to say in re
lation to politics in this County. It
is good sound rending for both parties,
and should be pondered by them. We
have always been in favor of minor
ity representation and hope to sec it
yet obtain throughout this entire
country. iL puts n safe check upon
rash ard con upt majorities, and al
ways ensures "a hearing" to both
sides. Tho Republicans of Mississippi,
Georgia, and other Democratic States,
would have been infinitely more com
fortable to-day if they had adopted
minority rule when they had tficpower
to enact it. This paper will al ways be
found in favor of fair play, and to
that end we reproduce the following :
"Whatever may be deemed exped
ient in reference to the Stnte nomina
tion, we don't think anything would
be accomplished by u "straight-out"
Democratic nomination in Orange
burg County, except the consolida
tion of the Radicals. Although "we
speak without authority," not being
one of the "knowing ones," we think
the best thing for the Democrats of
this county to do is to keep well
organized, and give their two thous
and votes to which ever wing of the
Republican party is honest, fair and
just enough to ac know* I edge the right
of "minority representation." It is
said that politics is a gamejn which
equity has no p'acc, but sometimes it
may hnppm that equity and policy
run in the same groove, in which the
best players will follow. In this
county the Radicals arc about three
thousand strong, and the Democrats
two thousand. Tt. ere fore, by the
system of "cumulative voting," the
latter are entitled to one county com
missioner and two representative.i.
Now, if the Radicals nominate an
honest ticket?if it starts the dead
from the graves to cry but, "well
done," by nil means let the Democ
rats join in the chorus. This is all they
ask. But if the Radicals will not
nominate a decent ticket, then let it
be known that two thousand Democ
rata arc ready to unite with the hon
est Republicans who arc unwilling to
foster rascality. Considerations of
party should always give place to the
interests of good government."

Go for him, Towser.
The Constitutionalist and the Chron
icle & Sentcriel of Augusta arc nt it
agaiu. The latter journal accuses
the Constitutionalist of conducting a
dog-in-the manger policy in the
house of its friends. The Constitution
alist throws down the gauntlet to the
Chronicle & Senlcnel, and the last
named journal lakes it up as follows :
"The dog-in-the manger policy of
the Constitutionalist has dolie us no
barm in the past; we do not think it
can do us any in the future. As to
M r. James R. Randall's vnporings I
about ' bullies" and "chips," we care
nothing for them. We treat them
with the contempt which they
deserve. We have not sought a per
sonal issue with him or any one else.
We shall certainly not decline one, and
if he thinks lo the contrary he may
be given ample opportunity to dis
cover his mistake."
Now if "My Maryland" is really
longing for the smell of gun powder,
it seems that abundant opportunity
to satisfy his ol lac tori es has been
offered him by Messrs. Walsh &
Rut the >A cn\i and Courier, smelling
the battle afar oil', advises these
belligeiehls to adopt this motto :
"Punch, brolhci*?, punch with care!"
Upon which we would remark,
keep cool, Messrs. Editors of the
Ncics a:,d Courier; the Gcjrgia duel
ists arc not likely to call upon you
for a second. And if they do you
can decline to act by falling back
upon your religio us creed. So don't
get unduly excited.

Otho writing to the AVies aud
Courier from here, in relation to the
contest between Cain and Duncan,
has this to say of our neighbor aud
ourselves : "Of our two newspapers,
the Nkws and Tim; s has been quite
non-committal, while the Free Citizen
has espoused tho Duncan side quite
warmly." Correct, brother Otho.
What is the use to espouse Caiu's side
when it sccnis that the people have
taken that privilege to themselves?
However, if it becomes necessary for
this paper to take a stand on one side
or the other, we shall not be found
timid in declaring ourselves, nor
backward in sustaining our side.
This distinguished jurist is strong

Sam. Mclt.m is more popular just now
with (lie masses of the people in this

he won't defend a Mackcy nor connive
at the escape of a Niles G. Parker.
