The Democratic meeting.
Early on Friday rooming last, a
week ago, the Democrats commenced
to mako their appearance from all
sides. Most of them were here by 9
o'clock a. M., and exhibited the
utmost good feeling and determina
tion. The boys on "tho other side"
are not Modocs, nud only mean to
beat the Republicans if they can.
Because a man is a Democrat we do
not regard him as a mom tor, to be.
shunned both night and day. Some
of those fellows arc mild even to
effemiuacy, and would not hurt a
Republican for the world. They are
simply "the outs," and now they
want to be "tho ins." Ouly this and

O'Coner, and a great many other
speakers presented themselves, and
were driven to the stand in the grove
near Capt. Rowe's where the speaking

Democratic party of the County,

That gentleman, alter stroking his
mustaches and. feeling the platform
that it was not "riekety," arose aud
prefaced the following resolutions
with n few eloquent remarks:
Ifesohed, That we, the Democra
tic citizens ofOrangebug County, in
mntis meeting assembled, copJSnlly
indorse the action, of the National
Dcmocratio Cbcwontrion. which re
cently met at St. Louts*?heartily ap
prove its form of principles?ratify
its nomination of Sarauel J. Tilden,
for the Presidency, and of Thomas A.
II end ricks for the Vice-Presidency,
of the United Stutcs, and pledge to
them our most strenuous efforts for

indorse the action of the State Demo
cratic Convention which met at
Columbia oh the loth day of August,
i 1876?ratify the nominations made
by that convention for State nnd
Federal officers?nnd pledge to the
nominees our united and earnest Stljp*
3. Resolved, That we deprecate all,
violence in tho approaching political
contest?denounce all attempts, by
whomsoever made, to briug about
collisions?pledge ourselves to use all
proper efforts to prevent them?to
put down all designing disturbers of
the public peace, andHccuro the quiet
and peaceful use of the election fran
chise by all our citizens, of every
4. Reso'ved, Unit in the grand effort
for reform which the Democratic
party is now making, we deem it the
duty of all good citizens, without re
gard to race, to unite against our
common enemy, and work together,
earnestly and faithfully, for success;
and we pledge to our colored fellow
citizens who arc now in our ranks, or
who may hereafter unite with us in
this glorious cause, protection against
all violence and oppression from
whatsoever quarter it may come.
At the conclusion of the foregoing
resolutions, Samuel Dibble, Esq., with
the air of a lawyer who knew his
jury, stepped forward and seconded
them in a manuer (hat elecited ap
Now came the set speeches. Gener-'
al Kennedy was tho first speaker
who made a dig at our side. He
was very coquettish in the beginning,
but after he got warmed up, we
noticed that ho was not halt as tender
as we took him to be. Ho punched
arc und promiscuously and didn't have
a single compliment for the "ins."
His speech was straightout.
Mr. H. 8. Thompson followed. He
was more easy going, and we liked
And after hira came Hon. M. P.
O'Conner. Well! bis reputation as an
orator is world wide, nnd as we do not
desire to do an injustice even to a
Democrat, we will pass by him by
saying that his speech was replete
with eh quence?only it was on the
A colored Democrat named
Hutchins spoke next.
L. S. Yuurmans, Esq., concluded.
He is also known, and it is not neces
sary for us to say that he also did
well?but on the other side.
Upon the whole of it, the meeting
was rather an "enthuseastie rally of
Democrats, and as it has always been
the desire of the editor of this paper
to do the opposition justice, wo do
not hesitate jto say that Captain Jim
made a first-rate showing with his

The Republican State Convention
first DAT'b raO?EEDiWGB,
This body met in Iba hall of the
House of Representatives in Colom
bia at 1 p. ra. w the 12th inst.
Gen. Ellrott, the Chairman of the
Executive Committee of tho State,
! called tho Convention to order and
commanded the Secretary to call the
: roll. Contesting delegations from
Colleton, Orangeburgr Bpartanburg
and Georgetown presented them
Congressman Smalls was afterwards
nominated for temporary ClmirnNin
by Hamilton,-of Beaufort, and 8* A.
Swails by M. S. Hirsch, sf WiHiwras
burg. Smalls was olected by n vote
of 65 to 50. A committee was ap
pointed to conduct Smalls to the
chair, when ho mado a speech con
gratulating bis paFly upon its unity
Jas. Kennedy was elected Secre
tary and Josephus Woodruff and
A committee of one from each
county was then appointed on cre
dentials, and the Convention then
adjourned till 8 o'clock.
At 4 o'clock the Convention con
vened again, hut the committee on
credentials having asked for further
time the Convention adjourned till
10 o'clock to-morrow looming.
BKCOND DAY'S PROCEEDINGS.
Tho Convention met again Wed
nctday September 13th at 10 n. mi.
and shortly after adjourned to 8 p. m.
to give more time to the Committee on
credentials. Upon re-assembling in
tho afternoon a permanent orgnnizn
tion was effected by electing Robort
Smalls Chairman. Committees on
platform and rules vrore here appoint
Senator J. J. Pattorson was then
called on. Some little excitement
prevailed, as it was fully expected
that ho would make an attack on
Governor Chamberlain; but to the
surpriso of many it was demonstrated
that the hatchet had been buried du
ring the night, and Pattersou endors
ed Chamberlain and pledged his sup
port to him and the whole ticket
whatever it might be. He said that
President Grant had his eye on
South Carolina, and intended to take
care of her, and he (Patterson) would
wairant that Grant would bring the
Btrong arm of tho United Stato Gov
ernment to support and keep the Re
publican party in pow^r. He was
not afraid of armed Democrats, and
he would warn these fire eaters that
Albany Penitentiary is big enough
to hold and would hold, many of
them as soon as the election was over.
So far as his icportod hostility to
Governor Chamborloin was concern
ed he said he had only fallen out
with him because the Democrats
were praising him too much. He
got suspicious of him, but was per
fectly satisfied that he had cast of his
new-made friends now, and he would
accordingly support him. He next
spoke of the report of his having
patched up a friendship with Cham
berlain on a compromise in which
the repudiated conversion bonds fig
ured conspicuously. He confidently
asserted that the Republican paity
will be in power in South Carolina
for ten years longer, and would have
Hayes and Wheeler to ?*kc care of
them. He said the whipping-post
would be elm nged to the school* I
house, nnd colored men would soou j
be equal in every way to the white
people of the State. They would he
too smart for the Democrats to fool
them as they were trying to do, Geor
gia was an example of a State where
the negroes had no show, had no
schools, and taxes were higher than
when Bullock was Governor.
THIRD DAY'B PROCEEDINGS.
On Thursday the Convention re
assembled according to adjournment.
Thoa. Hamilton nominated D. H.
Chamberlain for Governor. Mr.
; Green of Beaufort nominated T. C.
Dunn. Hamilton and others spoke
for Chamberlain, and Aug. Straker |
and others against him. At 1 o'clock
in tho night Chamberlain was
nominated by a vote of 88. Dunn
received 21 votts* R. H. Gleaves
j was rominatcd for Lieutenant
Governor by acclamation.
j Mr. Traeheart, lately associate edi
tor of the Journal of Commerce, bus
retired from that paper and Mr. Dill
has takcu his place. Of tho Ittte r
gentleman Mr, Rhett says >
I "Capt, Dill has had a large nnd
valuable experience in journabim.
j On the Washington Union tho Charles
ton Mercury, the New Orleans Times
J and the Ncio Orleans Picayune, he
I served in positions of high impor
tance, contributing largely to the
j success of those papers during his con
[ nection with their editorial and busi
J ness departments, Captain Dill re
signs the position of special agent
I and adjuster of losses of 'The London,
Liverpool nnd Globe Insurance Com
pany," at New Orleans, which he has
held for several years, to unite his
fortunes with those of the Journal of
Commerce. Wo congratulate our
selves and our readers on the acquisi
tion of so competent an assistant."
Tho strikers are at work again on
tho Combaheo. We trust for tho
interents of all parties that these out-!
breaks will be speedily put down.
They do nobody any good; in fact,
work infinite harm. Determined I
measures must be adopted.
Toleration the a root Need of
A French ki?g", In giving his ideal
of a happy realm, said that ho de
sired to see the day when every pea
sant hi France should have ft chick
en in his pot for dinner. It was ft
homely but forcible way of describ
ing an era of social order and happi
ness and well-rewarded labor in a
land of green pastures and still wa
tei-s, like Jud:ea, in tho days of
Solomon, when, iu the words of the
Hebrew chroniclor, Israel dwelt Bafe
ly, every miu under his vine and
fig-tree. For it was not the bran
ches bending with the weight of
ripened figs and purple clusters only
which cheered the contented owucr,
but the thought of the law reignod
supreme, aud ihat there was none to
make him afraid.
But neither Palestine nor Franco,
in tho dnys of their prosperity, ever
offered so fair or wide a field for a
population as Nature has given to
the fifteen Slates recently rescued
from the thraldom of slavery,?being
in respect of area, an empire, and in
respect of climate and products offer
ing everything required by the phy
sical wants of man.
It is said that this great and fer.
t'de region is not prosperous in com
parison with the Northern portion
of tho Union, a region having no
greater naiural advantages. If this
is the fact, it is of far greater import
ance for the Southern people to find
out the reason of this lack of pros
perity than to follow after a party
leader who tickles their ears with
glittering theories and iparkling
rhetoric. For, whether Governor
Hayrs or Governor Tilden be the
next President, the wants and wishes
of the masses of tho people will re
main tho same, The great multitude
will still continue within the walks
of privaie life, and of the forty*four
millions of American citizens, not
one in five hundred can possibly fill
a public office. Still tho daily
question of every household will be,
What shall we eat and drink, nnd
wherewithal shall we be clothed ? and
these natural wants, whose full grati
fication indicate a prosperous people,
can be sali.-lied in that land only
where peace and order are supreme
and violent men dare not molest the
citizen in public, or under his roof
Why is the South not prosperous f
Is (it because that portion of tho
Union which lately opposed the Be
hellion is hostile to her prosperity?
The supposition is wholly unreasona
ble. A whole people do not act
without a motive, and the North has
no motive for desiring the degrada
tion of the South, but, on tho contra
ry, bns the strongest reasons of natu
ral humanity and of self-interest for
desiring the thrift and increase of
the South,?reasons of kindred blood,
reasons of natural pride, reasons of
domestic trade and exchange, rea
sons of natural security and revenue.
It is strictly true to say that the
Soul hern people have the hearty
good-will of the North in respect to
their physical and mental progress.
Not an item of Southern news indi
cating local advancement fails to bo
cordially noted by the Northern
newspapers irrespective of party.
Tho grand donation of the late
Georgo Pcabody, of Now England,
to the schools of the South, the
princely gift of Vanderbilt to a
Southern university, the thousands
of smaller donations to Southern
churches and schools from the ex
tremo North, and the many millions
of Northern capitrl invested in the
South are a few of tho more striking
evidences that the North has none
but tho most kindly feelings towards
the South and ardently desires her
prosperity. It may be added that
there 13 not a single feature of North
ern enterprise and industry which
Northern capital has not honestly
tried to reproduce iu the South since
the close of the Wftr, despite many
Is the ?o?th, tlifcn, ?dfc pfdsp?r'o?s
because" her* labdf By'st?m has bceri
overthrown T Facts speak fdf them*
selves, nnd the present marvellous
year of plenty attests tho truth of
the assertion that Southern labor
never worked so efficiently before.
The only complaint which comes
?from the agricultural districts Is that
the planters and formers afe glutting
the markets with superabundant
But it may he said that, although
crops are abundant in the South, her
manufactorie.i languish. On this
point we have the testimony of the
Georgia nnd Tennessee newspapers
that the only cotton and iron mills in
the couatrol which havo d dared a
dividend this year are in those
States. "Working up the raw mate
rial, which is supplied at their doors,
the Southern mills and forges have
prospered, while those of New Eng
land and Pennsylvania havo languish
ed and failed. Says the Chattanooga
Timte, a Democratic paper published
in the great Sou the in iron district,
"The South has to day more furnaces
in b'ast iu proportion to her number
than tho North has, and vory few of
ours are losing any money whilo con
slant losses at the North is the rule.
We believe the only mill in the Uni
ted Blairs, tunning exclusively on
tailroad iron, which declared a legiti
ma!e dividend for 1875, was the
Bonne Iron Company's m'M in this
The Administration has taxed
Southern manufacturers with no
unequal and unjust discriminations.
The national laws havo pru.cc.ed all
alike, and if dnuster has over-taken
any enie-piise, it has not proceeded
from any sectional p/elud-ce or in
tervention. Why, then, is the S??iiih
not as pios*porous as tho North, and
why arc not her rich lauds sought
by crowds of immi^.auts ? The an
Bwer jsr si'y given. Govc nor Hayes
says In h:s le ier of acceptance,?
''Laborers will not go and capital
w'll not be ventured where tho Con
st'lUiion and tho laws are seiet de
fh?nee,and d'siraei'.on, nppichendan,
and ala' m take the placj of peace
loving nnd hiw-ahid'ng social bio."
There is the whole solution of the
question; volumes could not isiale it
bet ier. The vtae ami fig iroe hear
nbundainlr, but the slndow of vio
lence t.oublcs the hurt of the owner
as he sits uuder the'r friendly
It concerns the North that this
great evil shall bo radically reform
ed. It concerns the South more
deeply and d'.cci'y: She can change
the whole aspect of tho heavens by
the femplo breath of suffrage, at ou e
puff dissipating the malarious vapors
and damps which now ^overhang her
sky, and kiting in the sunshine of
universal toleration and fVce speech
to gladden and cheer tho dwellers of
every hamlet and city. Let it shine
in a flood of glovy, so that the citi
zen, unmolested nnd secure, can fill
his pipe of peace with the staple of
Kentucky and Virgin's, and roam
at h'8 own sweet will from the oyster
bays of the Eastern shore to the or
ange groves of Florida, He can do
it in Maine or Massachusetts or
Illinois, and why not a few miles
farther south in his own country and
under his own-flag?
The world moves, and the South
must move with it. The first stop to
build up the South is to destroy the
dangerous faction which thrives by
violence and upholds the organs of
mob-law. A Republican administra
tion will teach them that malicious
persecution for opinion's sake must
Btop at once; that the American peo
ple are determined that Germans,
British, French, Irish, Scandinavians,
and Northern mon shall trade, work,
voto, and ta'k as freely as they please
in every county of tho South as freely
as they do in New York ani Ohio.
An obvious feature of tbis meeting
was the absence of the local scala
wags and carpot-baggors. They could
hot stand the lire, and doubtless
thought pro?dcnce the better part of
Vrtlor.? Cort Journal of Commerce.
The above has reference to" the
mass meeting held by tho Democrats
