Orangeburg County is great in
many respects, but in none moreso
than in the nobility of character and
independence of scutimcut displayed
by her honest and energetic farmers.
They arc intelligent, industrious, ail I
careful of the yood name of the great
Democratic party to which they bo
long. Upon them, depends the suc
cess or non-success of almost every
undertaking or calling. By tho
sweat of their brow tho merchant,
the office-holder, the lawyer and the
politician must live. YYithout the
farmers these characters would
starve. Upon the great drama of
life they would be liko the play of
Hamlet with Hamlet left out.
And yet, strange to say, these men
of our County, strong and indepen
dent farmers, are frequently lost sight
of, forgotten, and ignored by men
who live by their labor, in tho every
day transactions of life. " Why trou ?
ble ourselves about the farmers?"
argue some men. "They are accus
tomed to country life and do not ex
pect much notice from great men.
. And when we want their friendship
on special*, occasions, it 13 easy
enough for us to condescend a little,
shake their bauds, ask them how the
old women and children are, crack a
few homely jokes and make them
then and there declare us real clevor
But here's where the office holders,
lawyers, merchants, etc., are mista
ken. "We concur in tho opinion
that our farmers ar6 used to country
life, but that they are asses we deny.
Wany a man believes that he can
bring countrymen to his feet when
ever he feels like it, and complacent
ly consoles himself with the reflection
that he is loo sharp to expose his
deceit to the gn/.o of those at whom
he laughs in his sleeve. But our ob
scrvation has taught us to believe
that in many instances of this nature
the positions of the parties are just
vice versa. The bi^ot is the dupe,
the peacock the veritable ass, and
the countryman the calm studier and
despiser of the man who assumes to be
his superior. Of course all farmers
are nofsmart men, but they, as a gen
eral thing, reflect more credit upon
themselves and their trade than do
men of some other professions. They
arc unschooled in the "ways that arc
dark and the tricks that are" not
"vain." There is no guilo in them.
Thcir's it is to do and to hope
for an honest nnd honorable living.
Thcir's to till the soil aud coax from
ils willing bosom the Jjread of life.
But whilo this is the case; whilo
they have not the whole year round
to watch the wiles aud the arts of
politicians, they are nevertheless
shrewd, observant, aud watchful of
the course of public men and mca3
urcs. During this very summer wc
vcntuieto say that many a strong
resolution baa been formed behind
the plow handles that will be carried
out ere "twelve months from to day
Farmersaro essentially tho men to
watch over the lifo of this State*
Certainly they will be assisted by
lawyers, merchants, doctors and me
?? but these must be of a clans
in full sympathy with tho tillers of
the soil. This is nothing if it is no'
an agricultural country, and its sal
vation [depends upon the working
masses?tho farmers whoso labor
turns tho wheels of commerce and
makes glad tho nation's heart w ith
their annual tributes to her stores of
wealth aud greatness.
Then, upon tho farmers must fall
the curse of our country's downfall
if ever that day should burst upon us.
Free andj disenthralled now, it is
time for our friends in tho country to
wake up. "Why wait until the ene
my is upon you before you prepare
for action? Do you net see entan
gling alliauccs? Are you blind?
"What sort of a convention do you
mean to have in 1878 ? Have you
ever given the sub'ect- ft thought?
Have you selected men for the next
Legislature? Don'tyou think it time?
True, it is earlyy to discuss this sub
ject, but under the head of "Farmers"
it seems appropriate to bring it up, be
cause wc think that our agricultural
interests should be strongly represent
ed iu the next Legislature.
We would be glad to hear from
any of our friends upon the subject.
It is important that tho farmers in
the county should understand the
sentiments of each other. That end
can be accomplished by writing to
the News and Times. After a
slate shall have been made up against
you, you might as well attempt to
lift yourselves over a stone wall by
the straps of your boots as to beat it.
So hearken unto our warning.
Death of City Solicitor Seabrook.
Mr, E. Baynard Seabrook, the
corporation counsel, who has been in
ill health for some time, died last
evening. ,Tbc deceased was the eldest
son ol the Rev. J. B. Seabrook. En
dowed with fine natural gifts, he wns
educated at Pincctou, N. J., and at
tained a high grade of literary cub
ture. At various times he contribu
ted essnys on various subjects to the
periodical press, and some id* these
have attracted more than ordinary
attention. As writer an 1 public
speaker ho was fluent and forcible,
and his early death cuts short what
might have been a career id'mark.
His age was 34. The funcinl will take
place from 99 Broad street, at ">
o'clock this afternoon.?Actos tout
Courier 14/7l inst.
The deceased will be remembered
by many in our County as an elleo
tivc and able speaker. For a long
time he was Solicitor of this circuit,
in which position ho distinguished
himself by his eloquence and high
legal attainments. Like all humanity,
however, he had his faults, but at
heart he was a noble, frank, and
generous friend. Onco his career
stretched out brightly before him,
and fame seemed for a time to have
regarded him with especial favor;
but some evil genius, jealous per
chance of his bright future, assumed
control of his life-boat, changed its
course, nnd left him upon the bleak
sea of disappointment w ithout rud
der or compass.
Mr. Seabrook was one of the
most charming conversationalist
we ever met. His mind
wns quick nnd active, but of au
impatient aud nervous turn. Nothing
so provoked him as the inabi lity of a
judge or jury to comprehend points
! which to him were as clear as day
light. In speaking, he always went
directly to the heart of hissubjoct,
and preset)ted it with that clear, un
assuming simplieit) of manner which
never fails to attract the sympathy o f
audience or jury. Perhaps a dis
appointed ambition had a great deal
to do with his early death. With his
mind crowded with the oxubcranco
of rich prospects ahead, and to have
had them suddenly blighted, was
enough, with one of his warm aud
anxious temperament, to produce that
"sleepless sorrow of tho soul" which
ceases to ache only in the grave.

is cold in death, and E. Baynard Sea

/Cditor Oranyebury News and Times :
I was glad to see in your last issue
a part of the game law eopieil, or
perhaps all, as I was just thinking
of asking you to bring it before the
public. Now, Mr. Editor, is what
you have published tho real law ?
the latest law ? the law for tho
whole State, or for a few who are
law-abiding citizens ? Tho reason
I ask these questions ' is this:
I ni)self take a great delight in deer
hunting, or, in other words, have a
great hankering alter what is known
by deer hunters, as the "Buck
Ague," that is, to have an old Buck
to run over you and frighten you so
badly that you could not shoot* I
have never been in this predicament
but have a great desire to realize the
sensation, It always happened that
my gun would go off before tho argue
would come ou, and'frighten it oil', i f
not the buck. But about the law.
Some go hunting in July aud wlion
you ask them if thoy are not afraid j
of violating tho law, thoy tell you
the law says any one can kill rieor
at any time provided ho does not sell
any part ot the same. Jn loot, one of
Chamberlain's Trial Justices decided
this to be tho law last year in a case
brought up before him, but afterwards
I learned that the one prosecuted
paid the Honorable Justico ten dol
lars to decide it in this way. But bo
this as it may, here are men claim
ing to bo iaw abiding citizens hunt
ing in defiance of the law, as I under
stand it.M Again if you ask thorn or
tell them.about violating tho law
they will tell you tho law says any
ouo can hunt when ho pleases, provi
ded he does not go seven miles lrom
his home, and such nonsense. Al
most every man has his own law
a bout hunting. One man's law says
you can kill bucks in summer; anoth
er one says you can kill docs in the
winter and so on.
Now, Mr. Editor, this is a whole
sale violation of the gamo law, be
sides a wholcsalo slaughtering of
deer. I was informed a few days ago
of a man not very far from me who kill
ed and old doo that was so puor
that she Was so poor, that she
was not fit for food nnd perhaps the
same doe left a fawn which will per
haps die of starvation. Thus you see
perhaps two deer were killed or des
troyed for one skin, when if the law
had been observed, by the 1st of
September, both perhaps would have
been good venison. From all re
ports if tho fines were all collected
for deet killed in Cow Castle and
Providence Townships, they would
nmount to not less than two or three,
thousand dollars. And each hunter
should bo made to pay his fine of
twenty dollars* Why should the law
be disregarded under Hampton as
Governor ? Should we uot have re
form. Who's duty is it to bring such
violators of the law to justice, when
the Trial Justices here are aware of
The law was made by the Legis'a
ture of South Carolina, and should
be observed by every good citizen,
until the same has been recinded by
the proper authority which I hope
will not be done until deer become so
plentiful through the county that it
will' be necessary so to do. ?
Perhaps these parties who have
been hunting so early cau tell us
where we can find a law which has
been passed since the ope you pub
lished; if so they will confer a great
lavor, on a law abiding citizeu and
lover of Spout.
