SATURDAY, JULY 8, 187G
The Democratic Nominees.
It will bo heralded to the world I
now that tho Tammany ring has been j
crushed by tho ticket nominated at
Bt. Louis, nod that canal thieves and I
Keiioy roughs have been put to
flight. This is the way the Demo- |
crals will speak of the triumph of
Tilden. There are some people
however, who will view the result of
tho fight at St. Louis in a different
light; who will regard it as a victory
for John Morrissey, the pugilist and
gambler, and his brother rowdy, Bill,
McMullen, a notoriously corrupt
alderman of Philadelphia, aud
others"of like kidney. Starting out
a day or two before the convention j
with less than two hundred votes,
Tilden, by the manipulation of States,
from many of which he cannot getan
eleetoinl vote, managed to secure the
nomination oh the second ballot. All
descriptions of tbe proceedings of the
convention and attendant circum
stances agree that disgraceful dis
order, wild confusion, inebriety,
street fighting, bar-room brawls were
the leading incidents. Thus the great
reform ticket promised by the
Democracy for the Centennial year
was conceived in j^cbauehery and
brought forth in corruption. It can
not be that such a ticket will win the
support of tho intelligent people of
America or ?fcAuflieient number of
But aside from this, the man who
heads the ticket has a record that
will, damn him with lnstiug infamy
in the estimation of the average
citizen. A peace Democrat during
tho war; tho author of the peace
plank in tho Democratic platform of
1864, when Mr. Lincoln on a war
platform swept tho country with the
vigor of combined and enthusiastic
loyalty; a pretentious and scheming
railroad lawyer; nn unprincipled
swindler of his railroad clients,
Samuel J. Tilden has risen step by
step upon the ladder of Democratic
fame until he has reached its topmost
round?has gained the greatest glory
that can be accoided to any Demo
crat of this day and generation, the
honor of being beaten by tho Repub
lican nominee for the Presidency.
The little fame ho bus earned as a
reformer shrinks into nothingness
when it is subjected to close analysis
in . the light of sober facts. When
elected to bo Governor of New York
ho found frauds existing in the
management of canal affairs, aud
took advantage of than, aided by the
ni t of venal cartoonists, to build for
himself a reputation as the Great
Canal Ring Breaker. In doing this,
however, ho was earful not to prose
cute his Democratic friends who were
im plica I cd in (he frauds, and very
careful to persecute the Republicans
wbrt wen; likewise connected. Sus
tained at all limes by Republican
nflieiubj on the bench and in the
Legislature of the Stale in his efforts
to expose fraud and corruption, he
succeeded in imposing his pretended
ullcmpls at reform upon, a few people
oirfsidc of'his partisan followers, for a
lime, oh solid and substantial reali
ties. They forgot for the time being
that lip had been the associate aud
intimate of Boss Tweed, and .hat his
political artfulness had been learned
nt the feet of I hut grea! convict-fugi
tivc. Within the past year, however,
the sober facts hnvc been made ap
parent?so plainly apparent that the
delegates who sustained him at St.
Louis must have been blind either to
(hat which all intelligent men know
or to the interests of their party. Ab
it is, Boss Tweed's bosom friend, his
trusted lieutenant, the man who al
ways subscribed liberally to his
campaign funds, and the man who,
when elected to be Governor of Hew
York, was only prevented from
pardoning him by the greatest possi
ble moral pressure, is before the
country, and his character and past
record thrown open to disscctiou.
His alleged popularity is sheer bun
combe. Well-posted residents aud
activo politicians at his own home
declare most positively that he can
not carry "his own county, whileevc?*y
one who knows anything about his
last camp .igu knows that he descend
cd to the most contemptible trickery
to secure voles. Among other things
every chambermaid, porter and host
ler in the rotate of New York was
supplied with ceppcr-plnte facsimiles
of personal letters to them from the
press of his brothers, who are engag
ed in tbc patcnt-mcdieiue business.
This incident shows the low-cunning
of the man, the mean side of his char
acter, combined with which ho poss
esses the most lofty aspirations, and
a determination and a force of will
which, in the service of a good cause,
wculd give assurance of success. But
he is not a statesman, has never ren
dered any service to his fellow-men
that should distinguish him above
others, and unlike General Hoyes,
Iiis Republican competitor, he has no
record which will draw about him
the sober elements of the country aud
develop aay earnest of deep-seated
ITcndricks while not as dangerous
to the interests of the laboring man,
is equally as objectionable to the
South and West. He is also n
prominent railway man, and will, if
elected, bo under the control of the

is eminently a rich niau's affair, and
while the poor men will be called up
on to elect it, a delegation from the
laboring class will never be able to
get the ear of Tilden should he hap
pen to get elected. They have both
made fortunes iu defending railroad
monopolies and as a matter of course
will stick by their old clicnls, to the
ueglectof the poor, if put at the head
of the government. All the benefits
the laboring people will ever got from
them will be boforc the election.
They will spend a part of their
princely fortunes to secure their
triumph. Aller that they will forget I
everyboby but their rich associates.
Aye! they will even go back on those
papers whose support they purchased
at twenty cents a line. But although
Ihc power of money has been felt
from the interest, and the ticket now
before the country is labeled reform,
the sentiment of the people cannot be
change sufficiently to secure for it the
The money kings of the Kasl issued
the edict, and labor of the We*t has
been sacrificed to liie golden song of
the syren. Tito battle to be waged is
between labor and capital, the pro
ducers and consumers on the one
hand and the brokers, hankers, deal
ers and railway monopolies on the
other. Tbc result cannot be doubted
that Hayes and Wheeler will sweep
the country as the friends of labor.

Once there was a little dog with a

I was at one of the School District
Meetings on Saturday the 2 Ith ult.
I saw a good many men that can
neither write their name nor read a
chapter iu the Bible doing p.ll they
could to prevent any levy being made
in order to carry on a public school
for the purpose of teaching their chil
dren to rend and write, when* at the
same time they arc not able nor will
ing to pay for leaching their children
themselves. However after a great
deal of pow-wowing a resolution was
passed levying 1J mills on 1%o dollar
on all taxable property iu the school
District for that purpose and I fear
so large a levy will brcak some of
them for it will increase some of their
taxes full 50 or 75 cents, that is very
heavy tax to pay for sending their
children to school a few mouths iu
Mr. Editor its a sad thing to go to
a house and find parents not able to
read or write their own names, the
children growing up iu ignorance,
never having 'been taught enough
cttiqucttc to give you a civil answer
when spoken to. But to return to
the business of the day the lev*)* being
made by a majority of the voters
white aud colored then the growling
and barking commenced (not at the
moon) but at those that dated to vote
coutrary to their little aud narrow
views of what ought to bo done in
such matters. However it all amount d
to about the same thing as did the
barking of the little dog with the
-'ii'i.tail or..the moon. Ob \f nur t
islature would only enact a law com
pelling all parents to send their chil
dren to school a few months in every
year wo would soon see better bchav
cd children iuour country. Our young
men aud women would grow up so
much better qualified and fitted to
occupy and fill the station in life that
our Creator intended thorn to fill.
May such a law he made soon is the
earnest wish of your correipondent.

The Roy. Emanuel Caughman, at
Leesville, in Lexington county, writes
to Rev. A. Bollcs, July 2, 1870, and
says: "This will inform you that the

gelical Lutheran Synod, of South
Carolina, is no more. We buried him
yesterday ,evening, at 1 o'clock.
Myself and the Reverends Boozer

The Bicycle In England.
The bicycle coutinues to gain fresh
devotees in England, and it is no Ion*
ger open to sceptics to pooh-pooh the
advantages of the machine as a means
of locomotion. A very simple au
swer to such cavillers might be given
by the 500 bicyclists who recently as
sembled in Bushy Park,near Loudon
for a grand meet. Tho bicyclists
were for the most part young men,
but the middle aged were well repre
sented, and there were some who
might claim to be venerable, There
were not a lew noblemen and mem
bers of Parliament there too, and al
together it was a very distinguished
gathering. That the metropolis
should be able to produce nearly 600
riders at a casual meet is of itself
strong evidence ol the popularity of
the bicycling art, but there are other
facts which still more, strikingly de
monstrate it. Whereas last year
England could only boast of seven
teen bicycle clubs, their number has
iu one short twelve month risen to
sixty-eight. Leaving London for the
moment altogether out of the calcula
tion, it is estimated that there are two
thousand members of clubs in the
provinces; besides some 8,000 riders
unattached to any organized society,
The art is not without its votaries
and patrons iu high quarters. Mr.
Lowe's devotion to it is notorious; the
Prince imperial is connected as an
honorary member with the West
Kent Bicycle Club, while the Earl of
Lewis President of the Tumbridgc
wclls and Lord Gordon Gronville of
the Peterboro clubs. More convin
cing than anything else, however,
as to tho increasing practice of bicy
cle riding is the fact that the firm of
Conventry who are the principal
manufacturers of the machine are
turning out more than a hundred
weekly. The improvements which
have of late years been made on the
original clumsy velocipede have natu
rally tended to increase its popularity
