To Our Readers.
The present number of Tnu NEws
AND HlERALD is sent to all- the old
suslcribers of the 2ri- eekly
Ne'ws and the FPairfield IHerald.
From this can be formed somo es
tiiate of the character of the news
paper we purpose to p)ublish
tholugh we shall miake considerablo
aditions and improvenents. We
trust that each old subscriber will
prouiptly place his namo upon the
list of Tim NEWS AND IiHAaD. Tho
cash system we have adopted, while
it is simply ncctessary for the sne
cessful management of our business,
will work neither hardship nor in
convenience to the subscribers. It
is quite as easy to pay the small
sum charged for a single copy of
the paper now, in payment for the
cominig year's subscription, as to pay
the same stmn one year hence for
the year then past. This is the
universal practice of every successful
newspaper in the country. Nor is
there over any objection made to it.
Thousands of persons in South
Carolina subscribe to papors out
side of the State, and they un
hesitatingly pay the subscription
money in advance This should
likewise be done with the county
We would also call attention to
our club rates. It will be little or
no trouble for a person to raise
among his immediate neighbors a
club of ten or of twenty subscribers.
In the former erase there is an ag
grogate saving of four dollars and
in the latter of ten-besides giving
the club- maker a copy free. We
trust that the liberal terms
ofoered will induce many to 'make
up clubs Any in form ati on desired,
together with specimen copies of
THE~ NEWs AND HIERALD, may be had
upon application to the Publishers.
We append our rates of subscrips
One copy, one year.. . ..... 83.00
One copy, six months. .. .. .1.60
Ouec copy, three months.... 1.00
Five copies, one year, at. . . 2.75
Teni copies, one year, at. .. 2.60
T 'wenty copies. one year, at. . 2.50

need not all be at the same post
The Radical County Convention.
The County Convention of the
Radicals met on Monday, and ro
mained in session two entire days.
Th body was about as noisy as ever,
aind at times the uproar was so great
that no business whatever couldl
proceed. It was five~ o'clock before
a permanen toirgani zation was effect
ed. Prince Martin was madoe chair
man, and WV. R1. Marshall secretary.
It was seven o'clock before a single
nomination was made.
)uring a recess, a joint discussion
bet woon Dem ocrats and Reul icans
was propoucd, and1( Majoir Woodward
made a telling sp)eech. lie was
attentively heard by almost tihe onl
tire audience. Andy Stewart, a
Radical negro leader, attempted
some interruption, .but the Major
sooni aquelched himl. It had been
arranged that there should be0 a re
ply from I. B. Smith, but the hour
of business arrived and the body
went to work. The following
nominations were made:
For Senator--Israel Byrd, colored.
For Reopresentatives--.Joh1n Gib
son, colored, S. S. Gibson, white,
Prince Martin, colored.
For Clerk of Court---Jno. J. Neil.
For School Commissioner-John
For Probate Judge--I. B. Smith,
The Convention now adjourned
till Tuesdag morning, and in the
me antime considerable dissatisefac
lion was shown in the ticket. Soveral
of the better class of Republicans
Niessrs. Crawford, Nelson, Martin
mud Harvey refused to accept a plae
an suob a ticket, and there was a
very general complaint'. ' So when'
the Conventiot re-aAsoibled, it was
f6ud necodsaiy toxundo all tho pro
vious work. A' now organization
eiditiro wag effected, and A new com
mittee on credentials tpp'ointed.
John Gibson was chosen "permanent
chairman, and C. W. Cummings
After a groat doal of wrangling
noise and confussion, a revised and
inproved (?) ticket was gotten up.
And here it is :
For Scnator-Warren R. Mar
For Reprenttives-John Gib
son, Daniel iird and Prince Mar
till, ill colore'd.
For Clerk of Comnt-Jno. J. Neil.
For J -Ago of Probato-. B.
For School Commissionr-John
For County Commisioners-John
Wilson, white, Carter Boaty and
Jim June, colored.
This is a fine reform ticket!
Jno. Wilson (vulgarly termed
No-Nose Wilson) and Alf. Smith,
colored, had a high wordy duel on
Friday lIast Tho.<o worthics were
whippors-in for several of the 999
candilidates in the fiel previosi to
the Ralical County Convention. Thoir
trouble was the result of a ccnflict
of intci ests, illustrating the proverb,
"Two of a trade ean't agro."
The Hampton Bille Club and the
Disio Sabre Club attended the
Co mden Democratic meeting.
The citizens of Ridgeway aro
much enconraged. I The colored
people are favorably impressed with
the fair, open speechos made at the
recont Democratic meeting, and
twelve of them have actually signed
the roll of the Democratic Club. A
large number have faithfully
promised their white friends to walk
boldly up and vote with them on
the 7th of Novewber.
The colored ifeople composing the
lft wing of the iadical army, cani
in on "critters" on Saturday last.
They were counted and numbered
actually reventy. They cheeoed
loudly for Mr. Marshall, ald, aftor
remaining in session some time, went
to his house an1d escortcd hili to
the meeting-place, wheo e he deliver
ed an address. He did not get a
nomination. The procession wont
round and round, "up the hill and
down again," but failed most utterly
to get up any degree of enthusiasm.
in fact, manny of the members, after
all was over, signitied their willing
ness to heaur argufmenlt! Every
thing encourages the hope that truth
will soon prevail.
A strong case of political per
eccution took p)laco a few days age.
Cornelius Minmms, colored, express
ed his intention oin last Saturday to
dra out of political slavery, and be
a free man. On Sunday he was
publicly expelled from thme colored
Presbyuterian church. Cornelius is
about the only ma~n in the church who
really has any religious pr inciples,
and he has long enjoyed tbe corfi
dkee of the whito people. The
Democracy will take good care of all
suchm deserving men.
Meeting at Ridgeway.
Thursday, the 5th of Octobor, w*as
a great day for Ridgeway and for
Fairfield. The p)ublic meeting hlcd
there will long he remiembered as
one of the most enthusiastic gather
ings ever known in the county. By
nine o'clock the Democratic Clubs
that were to participate, began to
arrive-most of thorm, oif core
being mouun tod. Everythming promi -
sodl a fine meeting. The p~eople of
Ridgeway had (levotedl both time
and n'onmey to Imakinig it a success,
and they have no roasoni to feel at all
disappointed. 'Thle busineas of thme
town wvas practicatlly suspended, and
tho place had tihe appearance whuich
is always presented on a general
hloliday. Theore wore several 1hu1n
dred men~l ill town by the time the
northern bound train arrived. Ini
the car was Col. John H-. Evins, ourm
next Congressman, and tihe opportu
nity was taken by the Clubs pies.
ent to have a speech from that
gentleman. Standing uponl the
platform of the freight-depot, lhe
addcressed a crowd in front of him.
His specech was full of force anld full
of good cheer for' the Democracy
of the county and the State. He
was frequently interrupted with
loud applause, and as lie stepped
into the moving car, the air rang
with three cheers for Ev'ins.
The procession was Boon formed,
under the command of Col. B3. E.
Elkin, as chief marshal, in the fol
lowing o rder :
Speakers in Carriages.
Ridgeway )omocrtic Club.
Dixie Demooratic Club.

The ground pelocted for the
stpeaking is remarkable in its natural
beauty and in its adapf;t.bility for
the purpose for which it ha more
than once beeii utted. A natural
iuplithelatre, formed by a gradual
ascotit u1pon all 01 sides from its celitre,
well shaded with hipidsoei trees
whose foliage is as abuin.lant as it is
verdant, this spot has all the fen
tures needed to namko.it suitable for
publie gatherings. Nor is it with
out historic interest. Here have
bten held tlireo public meetings at
intervals of just eight yearis. Late
in the year 1860, thopeaple assem

which were then atgitatilig the pop

thinking men. Again, in 1868, a
)ulic meeting was held on the same
pout, and idressos were (dl iver 'by
distinguished Carolinians in behalf
of the Democratic cause, then repuo
sented in Ih persons of Seymour
and Blair. Now, in this Centennial
year, aftrii the lapse of eight years

After a short interval there arrived
a large Club from Caiden, uder

After miic hy the band, the illeet

C. Davis, who statel tile purpose of
the meeting, weleolwed the entire

people esp)cially t'o occupy lace'i
