A Fine Colt Killed.
Mr. W. H. Cole, of the Fork, had a
very fine blooded colt killed a few
days since, by mules, in the same
pasture. Mr. Cole says the ground
showed every sign of the struggle
and race by the colt for its life, but
was finally run down and had its
throat so lacerated that death soon
followed. He says the little animal
was an unusually fine and beautiful
one, for which he would not have
taken one hundred and fifty dollars.

persons on the streets, more especial

would accuse the boys of a malicious
desire to do harm; they only engage
in this obnoxious pastime for sport.
It is none the less hurtful; and should
not be allowed where such conse

The Newberry Obere says: "Why
should Governor Richardson be regarded
as an 'opponent of the farmers'? The Gov
ernor is a farmer; and, except during the
war when he was a Confederate soldier, has
alwy been a farmer. He may not agree
with te doctrines of what is known as the
'farmers' movement,' or he may. Governor
Richardson is an honest man; he is a true
man, and as pure a patriot as South Caro
lina hasor has ever had. And whatever
opinion he may entertain, he is not an 'op
ponent of the farmers'". And a writer in
the Keowee (ourier defines the Governor's
stand thus: "I would like to kaow which
side Governor Richardson takes in the
Clemson College. I think he is like the
man who was out hunting and thought he
saw a deer. Then he thought it was a colt.
He said he would shoot anyhow, and if it
was a colt he would shoot to miss, and if a
deer he would shoot to kill it. He shot and
missed. and the thing ran off and he never

DAWSON AND TILLMAN.
B. R Tillman made a personal and
abusive speech in Charleston last
week, that would reflect little credit
on any one. Had he not returned to
Charleston, he would in the estima
tion of many, have stood much high
er. Capt. Dawson met his charges,
and came off best man. He termed
the people of Charleston arrant cow
ards, and blamed them for "not even
killing a nigger," boasting that he
had participated in the Hamburg af
fair. His speech was rather void of
saneness. We copy from the Sum
ter Advance a condensed report of the
At last these doughty champions have
met and broken a lance in the political
lists. The Captain's organ plays such a
lively tune over the affir that it is evident
he regards it as a success for him. We are
glad the thing is done and over with, and
nobody hurt except, it may be by the good
mutual tongue-lashing that the champions
gave one another. But to the story.
At 8.4V o'clock on Tuesday evening,
while heavy masses of threatening clouds
filled the heavens above Capt. Tillman,
who says he fears neither God, man, or
devil as to certain subjects and on certain
occasions, faced a crowd of 2,000 people
from the portico of the City Hall tn Char
leston. Dr. A. W. Eckle introduced the
speaker with remarks to the effect that at a
recent meeting in that city a riot had oc
curred which had besmirched the fair fame
of that eminently respectable town, and
that as an atonement for this outrage on
decency, some ot the Charleston Democracy
had invited Ben to return and give them a
talk which the speaker engaged should not
be interrupted as at the precious meeting..
Tillman mounted the rostrum and began
his speech to a crowd that had increased to
about 3,000 according to the N. & C., 4,000
according to the World. He began by re
ferring to his fighting capacities, which he
said were large as compared with his power
to preach, and then proceeded to advocate
honest government and freedom from ring
rule. He said the people of Charleston
were peculiar in the depth and extent of
their cowardice and submission to this sort
of rule. He swore that if the sort of thing
that was quietly submitted to in Charleston
were even attempted in Edgefleld, the party
ittempting it would be lynched. He also
swore about the taxes Charleston people
paid, and alleged that they only stood it be
:ause they were getting rich off of Edgefleld
d other backwoods settlements. He al
ieged that every city of over 5,000 people
in the State-was ruled by a ring. In Char
eston it was worse than anywhere else.

slate for them and put fat farmers in their
place. ML'ey must get rid of the surplus
legislators thev'now Laave, or else he (Be)
ind his aohorts would suspect them of steal
ing their money.
He swore to God that the people were
putting themselves in the mine because
they were afraid of the Yetcs ad Courier,
umd accused Capt. Dawson of having legs
ong enough to reach from Georgetown to
Beaufort and feet large enough to eover
both those towns or counties. He also said
that the gallant Captain was not fit to lick
his boots or those of his hearers. He com
pared Capt. Dawson to the old man of the
sa, and the State to Sinbad. He then pro
eeded to show up, as he called it, Dlaw
pos litical and personal record. He
called te captain a big buzzard-he read
his letter to Woodruff in 1808, and other,
matter, editorials principally from the
DrTiy eos, and extracts from, the frauds'
ommittee report, with most of which our
people are already familiar. Meanwhile a
ieseger had been dispatched down Broaid
street to the Sewos aind Courier office to tell
the Captain that Tillman had begun a per
sonal attack on him. Responding prompt
Ly, Capt. Dawson appeared mounting the
stepofthe city hall and said he desired to
interrupt the speaker. Tillmnan was evi
dently surprised but he came to the scratch
wa said he would be glad to hear what the
gentleman had to say. Capt. Dawson then
aid he had come to meet his accuser fae
to fce, and answer him, leaving the ver
fict to the judgment of his fellow citizens.
H then took a seat awaiting the close of
[llman's speech. That worthy' producer
of black eyes and funerals on slight provo
cation, went on to comment on the Ham
burg massacre and the-to our mind-cour
ageous and proper stand taken by the Sewos
sad Courier on that subject, which was, how
ever, too much for the "one-eyed perch"
of this new "what will he do with it, who
said he and other Edgefield gentlemen had
saved the State by means of that riot and
massacre, having "dared even the devil to
save the State."
The speaker then instituted a compari
son of Dawsonism and Tillmanism much to
the advantage of his side, of course, and
wound up by relating the old story of the
jackass-howitzer as employed by the army
oficer against the Indians.
Capt. Dawson then replied to the gentle
men from Edgefield in his characteristic
style. As to the charge of political dishon
esty he referred to the fact that while in
187 he opposed the straightout Democratic
movement he was in accord in his views
with a large number of the best men of
South Carolina, but that when the move
ment was determined on he threw all his
ability, energy and the influence of his pa
per to support the cause. He challenged
criticism and referred to his record as to1
personal honesty. Referring to the Wood
ruff incident Capt. Dawson said that the in
vestigating committee had completely ex
onerated the Keres and Courier. Woodruff
was engaged by him as agent and corres
pondent at Columbia but when he got on to
Woodruffs and Jones's corrupt doings he ex
exposed them and that was what caused the
stir and resulted in the appointment of the
frads investigation committee. Had he
anything to conceal would he have so ex
He was charged by Tillman as being a
supporter of ring rule and of the effete aris
tocracy in power. To this he replied that
it was'only Mr. Tillman's opinion, but if
standing up for the best people of the State
and for white supremacy meant ring rule
he would plead guilty to the soft impeach
ment. He characterised Tillmnanism as sy
nonymens. with "exagerationl." He said
that Tilian was uncertain of his facts,
vague in his charges and loose in his state
All in all his reply was well timed and
the argument a good one and was most en
thusiastically received by the large audience
present. If the "gentlemen from Edgefleld"
aptured Charleston it <ioes not appear
upon the face of the "returns."

The course of instrunction, embracing ten years, isdesigned to furnisr a
liberal education suited to the ordinary vocations of life,. or to-fit students-for
the Freshian, Sophomore, or Junior class of colleges.
PLAN OF INSTRUCTION.
The most approved text books are used. The blackboard is deemed an.
essential in the class room. The meaning of an, author is invariably reqpired;
of each pupil. In all work done, in. whatever department, and whatever the
extent of ground covered, our motto shall always be -raeouNn s. To thin
end, we shall require that every lesson be learned, if not in time for the- elass
recitation, then elsewhere. No real progress can be made so Yong as- the
pupil is allowed to go on from day to day reciting only half-perfect lessons.

that stand in his class that otherwise he would have taken.

should be-FIRST CLASS in every respect.
