President elect, and escort him to tho
The Chair appointed Gen. M. C.
Butler, Capt. W. B, Stanley and Col.
J. B. Moore as the committee, who
escorted Gen. Kershaw io the chair.
Gen. Kershaw, upon .taking tho
chair, briefly addrcssod the conven
tion. He assured the gentbmen of
the convention that it was as much a
surprise as a gratification to him at
being called upon to fdl so distin
guished a position. He felt that the
most distinguished position that any
man in the State of South Carolina
can occupy at the present timo is to
be the presiding officer of a con ven
tion of that class of ostracised citizen
whose voice should always be heard
in shaping the destinies of the State.
He excused himself from saying more
than assuring the convention of his
heartfelt thanks lor the honor con
ferred. He felt that this was not the
occasion, if it was otherwise proper,
that he should offer measures or coun
sels for the consideration of the con
vention, when the battle for the re
demption of the State, in which the
Democrats expected to bs victorious,
was so far distant. As a military
man, he should not indicate his pirn
of battle until the enemy has some
what developed his plan of campaign.
He said it would be a presumption
on his part to indicate what should
be the course of this convention, of
which he was incapable, and, there
fore, would announce that the chair
was ready fo cute?*tniu the business
of the convention.
Col. \Yro. Jobuson, of Charlotte,
and Mr. McGec, of Anderson, were
invited to seats on the floor ol the
Gen. Johnson Hagood, of Barn well
olfored tho following preamble and
The Democratic parly of South

3. The convention then to go into
A discussion ensued upon the reso
lutions, during which Mr. Till man,
of Edgefield, freely discussed the poli
cy of ^thc party, when there appeared
j to be a desire to debate the resolu
tions in secret session, a::d it was j
indicated that if there should be a
division of counsel, it should be kept
from the public until a plnn of party
organization and action had been fully
developed and was made harmonious.
To obviate further debato of so
important a set of resolutions, Goneral
Butkr oflercd the following resolu
hcaolvctj. That a committee of
fifteen, to consist of three from each
Congressional. District, be appointed
by the convention, to be known as a
committee on business, whose duty it
shall bo to prepare business for tho
convention, and to report a plan of
action, to whom all resolutions shall
Resolved, That said committee re
port to this convention at 10 o'clock
Friday morning, to which hour this
convention shall stand adjourned.
In the discussion of this resolution,
Col. Aiken said he oppescd it, and be
lieved it was only the duty of the con
vention to elect delegates to St. Louis,
elect a State Executive Committee,
aud then go homo. Time.had been
taken up in the discussion of a subject
which the convention had no right to
take up. He should vote agoinst all
mcasuics except the two above men
Gen. Butler advocated his resolu
tion, aud said it was of the utmost
importance to the people .of South
Carolina that the organization of the
Democratic party should be discussed,
und some plan of action he submitted
to the people. If the campaign was
worth making it was worth preparing
The resolutions af Gen. Butler
were laid on the table.
The Presilcnt of the convention
wns made ex officio chairman of the
State Executive Committee.
The resolution for secret session
elicited some debate, when a motion
was made and carried, at 11.30 p. m.,
to adjourn to 10 o'clock Friday morn
ing, when an election for delegates
was gone into. After appointing an
Executive Committee, consisting of
fifteen, the Convention' adjourned
sine die. Capt. Jas. F. Izlar was
chosen an alternate and also a mem
ber of the Executive Committee.
To Bo Regretted.
The friends and admirers of the
Journal of Comnurcc. those who be
lieve that a Conservative course for
the Democracy is the best one for it
to pursue, will regret its extremely
bitter course. We gave it a good
send off in this county?advertising
it in the homes of nearly fifteen hun
dred of our lax-payers?but wc fear
we shall have to change our mind in
regard to the lofcy position woaccrcdi
tcd to it upon the plane of journalism.
Indiscriminate abuse of Republicans
can accomplish no good for the suf
fering tax-pay era of South Carolina;
nor arc the extreme views entertained
by our neighbor's correspondent,
"Straight-Out," shared by the majori
ty of the people of this county. The
Conscivativrs here want good and
honest government above all things
else. They are. of opinion tbat
neither the extreme views of the
Journal of Commerce nor the Cun
ningham-Mackoy policy of the News
and Courier will help them to secure
that longed-for boon. I fence it may
be safely asserted that the majority of
the Conservative s in this Slate have
no legal representative among the
daily newspapers of South Caiolica.
The Journal of Commerce needs a con
siderable cooling off, and then such
communications as '.he ono from
Straight-Out would find their*" way
into the waste-basket.

The Columbia l'/ttenix made its re
appearance in that city on Monday
last, but in a rather diminutive shape.
It proposes, however, to contain all
the news. The Phtvnix was severely
castigated by such papers us tho News
and Courier and the Suinter IIafc/i
man for advocating the clcctiou of
Governor Chamberlain, and was vir
tually ruled out of the Democratic
camp by their mad opposition. But
! time works wonders, and wo now find
the fr eies and Courier and the Sumtcr j
lJ'arr/<???n claiming for thcmsqlvcs
the solo right to laud his Excellency.
This of couiso vindicates tho cause
of the Phocr.ix and establishes Sclby's
right to the distinction of the title of
Prophet. Go it Julo. Wo wish you

The Cabin Boy.
"Please, sir, don't you want a cabin
"I do want a cabin boy, my Tad, but
what's that to you ? A little chap
like you ain't lit for the berth !" ?
"Oh, sir, I'm real strong. I can do
a great deal of work, if I ain't so very
"But what arc you here for? You
don't look like a city boy. Run
away from home, hey ?"
"Oh, no, indeed, sir; my father
died, and my mother is very poor, and
I want to help her. She let me
come." Here the little boy covered
his face -with his hands and wept as if
his heart would burst.
"Well, sonny, where arc 3'our
letters of recommendation ? Can't
taken boy without those."
Here was a damper. Willie had
never thought or its being necessary
to have letters from bis minister or
teachers, or from some proper person,
to prove to strangers that be was an
honest and good boy. Now, what
should he do ? He clasped his two
hands together und stood as if in
prayer, the captain meanwhile cur
iously watching the workings of bis
expressive face. At length be put his
hand in bis bosom, and drew out his
little Bihle, and without one word put
it into the captain's hand. The
captain opened it at the blank page
and rend :
"Willie Graham: Presented as a
reward for regular and punctual at
tendance at Sabbath school, and for
his blameless conduct there and else
where. From his Sunday School
Captain McLeod was not a prods
man, but he could not consider the !
case before him with a heart unmov
ed. The little fatherless child, stand
ing humbly before hint, referring him
to the testimony of his Sunday school
teachers, as it was given him in his
little Bible, touched a tender spot in
the heart of the noble seaman, and
clapping Willie to bis bosom, bo said :
"You"arc the boy for me; you shall
sail with me; and if you are as good a
lad as I think you arc, your pockets
shall not be empty who:; you gu hack
to your mother."

How U Get Rid of Flies.
Row George M cares Drought, writ
ing from Ireland, says: ''For three
years 1 have lived in a town, and dur
ing that time my sitting-room has
been free from flies, three or four only
walking about my breakfast table,
while all my neighbors' rooms were
crowded. I often congratulated my
self on my escape, but never knswthe
reason of it until two days ago. 1
then bad occasion to move my goods
to another house, while I remained
on for two days longer. Among other
things moved, were two boxes of
Geraniums und Calceolarias, which
stood in my window, the window be
ing always open to its full extent, lop
and bottom. The boxes were not
gone half an hour before my room
was as full of flies as those around
inc. This to me h a new discovery,
ami perhaps it may serve to encour
age others in that which is always a
source of pleasure, and which now
proves also to be a source of comfort
viz: window gardening./?Exchange,
The above is certainly a very -;im
j pie and pleasant remedy, and will pay
' for the trying even if it fails. The
housekeeper who has the good taste
and the watchfulness and the "are
and clonhliuess, to keep "two boxes
of Geraniums and Calceolaries" in
the window of her kiichen or dining
room is not apt to be troubled with
flics and any other filtbiucss.
And we would lay a wager that
her thoughts would be ai clenn as her
