Wade Hampton readied this city ton
day? ago, and. since that liiuchas
been busily engaged spending part of
his time among the capital ists. On
his arrival it was rumored that he
had come to secure the arrest, of his
predecessor, Chamberlain; that his
mission was <>[ a political nature; that
he was Id visit old friends; that he.
wanted to capture Niles G. I'u ike r,
one of iho South Carolina ring, who
how resides in Newark, and so on.
The fact is that Governor Ifampt in
eaihe here to raise money for the
treasury of South Carolina. The.
Legislature which assembled soon
alter his installation empowered him,
should he deem it necessary, to bor
row $1,00,060 on the credit ol the

This loan was necessary because of
the non-payment of State taxes pend

In Governor Ilampion's search for

people have olli-rcd to lend the Slate

A Sun reporter, in searching for
hi formation 0:1 this subject, fell in
with a hohler of the bonds of Soli lb
Carolina. "Look here/'said he, pro
ducing a large package of these
securities ami laying one of them be
fore tin; reporter, "here is a ?? 1,00 )
bond of the Stale of South Carolina.
As you see, it was issued in accord
ance with an ael oftho legislature of
the State, quoted on the face; it ia
signed by the Governor of the Stale,
countersigned by the Trca inv.r of I he
Siate, stamped with the great so:1.! of
the Stale, duly numbered; and you
Mr that the faith, credit and funds of
the Stale are by this boiidits-dfpledg
ed for the payment of the interest
and the redempti m of the principal.
These bonds were sold in this market
by the authorized and accredited
agent, of i he Stale ( Cherubic K imp
ton,) from whom 1 myself pure ha.-ed
them. Now, sir, when, alter these
things yon find that these boh Is are
lb-day worthless, how can any man
in this street where the villi lily of a
contract and the honor of a signature
are the supreme law, regard any
other pledges that may be made by
the government, of South Carolina.
The Governor whose signature is at
I ached to this bond, is to-day an ad
herent ami upholder of Wade Hamp
ton. The same is to bo said of the
Stale Treasurer whose name adjoins
the Governor's, and many members
of flic Legislature who passed the act
autlioi'uiiig their issue are to-day
members of Governor Hampton's
Legislature. Yet this bond aud those
bonds are worthless.
"But Iben wcro not these bond.--,
issued by a fraudulent Stale govern
ment," asked the Sun reporter?
No, by the legal government of the
Slate; recognized as euch by lite
.vliole population, which obeyed it
paid laxes to it and enjoyed the rights
of citizenship under it. I know very
well (hat it is said that these bonds
were issued by corruptionist'}, and the
proceeds uf them stolen by plunder
ers. But louk ho.'-e again, said the
holder ofSouth Carolina bonds t) the
Sun reporter : Here is a bond of the
city of New York, issued (luring the
rcigii of the Tweed ring corruption
ists, under the signature of Richard
B. Connelly, the proceeds of which
were stolen by Tweed iind his fcllow
plunderer.s, yet the g iverniuctlt of tb c
cit y of Now York does not on the r.e
couol perpetrate the infamy of re
pudiating this hond, or do me its pos
sessor the wrong ol' holding me re
sponsible for the e rim us of its author
ized agent, and this is pro.uninc; illy
ti nt; in the realm of credit tuul.fiu
ance When a man or Stale dishon
ors his or its pecuniary pledgee un ler
any pretext, beware ol* any further
promises from the same source. Mil
lions of dollars worth of these South
Carolina hond-; for which the State
drew the money from this city and
(ram small investor.-, here have been
repudiated. Governor Hampton und
his ] jogislaturo cannot issti s an/ boa d s
that have a higher technical legality
than Llicse South Carolina bonds now
in your hand, an I I know not how
soon his pledges may be repu Hated
by his suc.ecs.sor, us he himself as re
puditcd the pledges of his predecess
Bui. wore not these bonds gobbled
up by a ring of Wall street specula
tors?asked the Sun reporter ?
I must tell you my young friend ,
what a terrible wrong Io many men
is involved in the suggestion of your
?pic linn; why, sir, the veteran and
accomplished author and editor,
Charles F. I.Jriggs; who die 1 hut a few
day a iigO'lirtitiia' iAvy\ I rail |ntu i-?o ,.
qcqds of half tt century of industry

South Carolina bonds, ah I when they
were dishonored the veteran was
plunged into financial ruin; and wurde
still lie left his widow and orphans
without that lilt'e fortune which it
had been his pride to accumulate.
Ask the unfortunate Charles II.;
Webb, ask the broken down, Mr.
M-auk, when, you yourself know, if iL
is fair to class them among the sp.'ou-:
I a tors, who havo grown rich on the
bomls of South Carolina. Look at
myself, ill able to stand the loss I hive
suffered by that State. Scores of men
of limited means put their money into
these bonds, when the State offered
them in this market, nnd many of
them have been utterly ruined as a
consequence of trusting in its good
faith; they arc absolutely worthless,
although I believe they have been
rjuotcd within a lew months at I or 2
per cent, on the dollar. Why only
ib;-day, when ;i dead beat came to nie
to procure a loan of the wherewithal
to purchase his dinner, 1 gave him
h;8 choice between twenty-five cents,
which was all the change I hail in
niy pocket, ami one ol these $1,000
bonds. Mo took the twenty-live, cents,
saying it was worth a sackful of such
bonds. Now, sir, when South Caio
liniaiH conic into I .is market again,
to borrow money on the. faith, credit
and honoi of their Slate, 1 can but
shake the bomls in their face, as a
proof of what faith and credit arc
worth to sinne very pretentious citi
zens not. of African descent. The Sun
reporter had by this time heard
enough about the grievances of the
unhappy holders of the conversion
bonds of South Carol inn.

An Advertising Agent.
Wc thought, says Llic Burlington
Ttaickc.ye, from the way he came into
tiro oflico and slain hied his cane down
on the table and took the best chair
and spat on the stove and said,
"Well, Cully, how docs the old thing
work?" that he was a circus agent,
out bis card showed him to be a
modest, unpretending advertising
agent of a Wisconsin paper. He had
just come from Chicago, he said.
Wo said, "Ah !" hot because there,
was' an) particular brilliancy in the
remark, but because that is what we
generally say, with a rising accent
on the final syllable, when a man tells
us ho has been to Chicago.
"Yes," he said; he had been to
Chicago. "Had wc a man up there?"
"No," we hadn't.
'?Well," he said, ' don't send one
there. Just a waste of time. I've
been there nearly three weeks, and 1
just club myself every time I think
what a fool I was to throw away so
much time that I might have put in
somewhere else to advantage."
"Didn't he do anything in Chica
go?" we asked, rather timidly, for
wo began to see wc were in the pre
sence of a Master Mind.
"Naw-w-w!" he snarled, in a most
contemptuous tone; "hardly made
expense5; didn't pay salary. There
three weeks, und only come away
with $3,7b'0 worth of ads. All cash,
ofy, course, and that makes it a little,
better, but didn't pay for all that
time. How much Cliicago advertis
ing are you carrying ?"
VWc couldn't tell him indeed, with
out consulting the business manager,
but we wire confident that the
ttyckc.gti had, a', inside figures, at
least, three or four dollars' worth of
u4vr' vJnrrev^r, nrltrnrf i xtytnanfc?. We
began to tlunk what, a jewel this man
iinust be on the business /luff of a
daily paper. W.s he going to St.
Louis '? we asked.
He burst i 11L? a sort of derisive
laughter, for all the world like the
opposition benches in Congress.
"Been there," he said, "and ain't
going back until times pick up a
little. Deadest place you ever struck
in your life. Nothing doing. Just
nothing. Why, I was there ten days
? ten whole long days, as I'm a truth
ful man; and only got?let me sec?
I'll give you the figures. And he
pulled out his no'c-book fand ran
over the leaves and down long
columns of figures. "Yes, sir, I was
in St. Louis ten days to an hour, and
only got $4,227.50; and $1,896.7?? I
have to take in trade,'and only $2,
lo() cash-i n-advancc ads. Don't you
send a man t o St. Louis, if you don't
want to pay his fare home."
" Which way was iic going from
Burlington ':" we asked, deeply im -
"O, out along the line of the B. and
M.," he said, "out to Omaha, and
maybe out to Lincoln and up to Des
"Now, don't go there," wc begged
him; "don't go out that way at all.
It won't, pay you; we know this
country, and we know you won't
make a cent on this trip."
"Why not ?" he asked, defiantly,
and in a. rather incredulous tone of
'f Because," we said, "the 1 laic key c
had a man all through that country
one day last w eek. It may appear
incredible, but, sir, that man was
gone fifteen minutes, and came back
with only $72,000 cash ads, a couple
of national banks, six Nebraska
farms, a Kansas cattle itinche, and
the Iowa State Treasury, and the
captain discharged him for not mak
ing his wages. It's as dead as-"
But ho was gone, and we heard
him down stairs asking the business
manager if he thought it was ncccss
ary to import a thoroughbred liar to
edit his paper.

A correspondent writing to the
Atlanta Constitution, from Gaines
ville, during the recent session of the
Baptist Stale Convention, reported
Tlev. J. J). Hart well, missionary to
China, on .Saturday, related to the
Convention, a touching incident.
While in South Carolina, recently
he. was engaged in collecting funds
for the benefit of foreign missions,
and met with sonic Christians who
made great sacrifices to aid the cause.
A Baptist preacher donated a line
hymn book, stating, that be wished
to help the cause, but had no money,
and he gave his hymn book that it
might be sold and the proceeds given
to the missionary fund. In the same
Stale Mr. Ilhrtwcll vidi ted an old
widow lady. After talking to her
some time about missionary work,
without n thought ol asking a con
tribution from her, she went out of
the room a moment and rcLtrned
with a pearl card case wrapped in an
old handkerchief, and told the mis
sionary that it was a treasure which
had belonged to her daughter, long
since dead, and she had clung to it,
as a precious memorial, hut she felt
that she must give something io
Christ's cause, and she begged the
missionary to take it and s 11 it to
somebody for what, he could, and to
send the 11101103 to spread the gospel
to China. With her daughter's card
case she placed another of her own, a
souvenir ? f h. r happy youth. Mr.
Hart well showed hot'i^ eases to the
convention, and asked if he could
liiid a purchaser. Mr. James if. Low,
of Atlanta, immediately gave 6-3 for
the two, inking the old handkerchief
loo. lie immediately put them in a
I'acknu'^-und .sent U\om vritW -iUni-g?..

bad made such ii sacrilicc for the gos
pel of Christ. Who knows the pain
of that sacrifice to her, in spite of the
consolation whi:di must have conic to
j her when .-he thought of'.lie cause in
which she made it? And who can
\ ti ll of the joy she now feels when she
receives' again, from the hands of a
good, teiidcr-hcartcJ man, her lost
treasure, redeemed and mad, more
precious by one bitter sacrifice.
Ttic hymn book was sohl at once
for i?0, and given back to he sold
again. It brought another $5, and
was again given back. It may prove
a fruitful source ol'revenue, if future
purchasers have the liberality of those
at the convention.
Hidden and Safe.
One morning a teacher went, as
usual to the school-room, and found
many vacant seats. Two little schol
ars lay at their homes cold in death ,
j and others were very sick. A fatal
di case bad entered the village, and
j the few children present that morn
I ing at school, gathered around the
teacher and said :
'Oh, what shall we do ? Do you
think wc shall be sick and ilio too?'
She gently touched the bell as a
signal for silence, and observed :
'Children yon are all afraid of this
terrible disease. You mourntbo death
of our dear little friend::; and you
fear that you may be taken also. I
only know of otic way of escape, and
that is to hide.'
The children were bewildered, and
the teacher went on :
'1 will read you about this hiding
place;' and read Psalm xci: 'Whoso
dwellclh under the defence of the
Most High shall abide under the
shadow of the Almighty.'
AH were hushed and composed by
the sweet words of the Psalmist, and
the morning lesson went on as usual.
At noon a dear little girl sidled up
to the desk and said :
'Teacher, arc you not afraid of the
'iSro, my child,' was the reply.
'Well, wouldn't you be if you
thought you would bo sick and die?'
'No, my dear, I trust not.''
Looking at the teacher a moment
with wondering eyes, her face lighted
ns she said :
'Oh, I know! you arc hidden
under God's wings. What a nieo
place to hide !'

A Legend About Coffee.
There is a legend about coffee?a
legend in which a pious Mussulman
is the hero. The Mussulman used to
get sleepy during his devotions, ami
so he prayed to Muhammcd, who
eame to his aid. Mohammed sent
him for advice a goat-herd, who took
a hint from his goats, lie observed
that when these animals ate berries of*
I a particular tree they got frisky ami
excited?bounded about all thenight,.
in fact. The Mussulman touk the bint,
j ate the coffee berries, slept less, and
no doubt prayed belter.
That was ihe legend. That eofreo,' t
however, was sold in the streets of-.??
Gario toward the end of the sixteenth...
century is not a matter of legend, but
history. In fact, it was not only sqUl,
but it was forbidden to besohl. An ?
Arabian historian recounts that in tha?r
year 15:18 a cafe was attacked by the
authorities, and the customers who
were found on the spot hurried oll'to'"
prison, from which they werojtofc'-1'
liberated till they had each received;';
seventeen strokes with a stick, ibr^
encouragement of others. And, in
fact, this raid served the purpose ?s
