Oct. 4, 1800. From Hayne't store to

miles. But it is the best country rond 1

bwart made the appointments in Polk
and it looks as if he might have had un
oDjcct in selecting the places ol S)eakmg
It would occur to any one that the coun
ty sent ought to have been selected as
one of the places, and if not, then a more
central place, to which a majority of the
votes mignt nno easy access. Air. liwart
would not agree to go to Columbus at
all, but selected this place, which is al
most within a stone's throwof the Ruth
erford county line on one side of the
countv, and Snluda, immediately on the
Hennersoncounty linron the other side ol
the county. Ewn'rtevidently desires as lit
tle stir in Rutherford and Polk at possi
ble, but for just what reason is not ap
parent. The crowd present was not
large trwlay. The smallest we have had
except at Spruce Pine, in Mitchell. The
majority ol them were democrats, too.
and red hot ones at that.
Ewart took the occasion to spring a
new issue, of a local character. He de
clared that the fair name of Polk county
nno ueen tamisnea Dy tne throwing out
of its vote two years ago. Crawford
knew nothing of the circumstunces at
tendance this rejection of votes, further
than it was done.
It seems that the county returning
boards refused to count the votes ol two
townships in that election, Saluda and
Levi s. 1 he reason tor this action was
that the registration books in neither
township were open thirty days prior to
the election at required by law. This ac
tion of the board resulted in the election
of the entire democratic ticket. John
Hampton, the republican sheriff, who
was running for re-election, apiicnled to
the courts. The court decided that the
vote ol Levi township should have been
counted, as it appeared thut no voter
had been deprived of his vote, notwith
standing the registration books had not
Ix-en ojiened the required numlier of days.
This gave Hampton his office. In this
suit Hampton's lawyer acknowledged
the fraud at Saluda, und did not claim
that township. Now, the fact is, the
failure to have the books open for regis
tration was the fault of Hampton him
self, who, as sheriff, failed to put the
books into the hands of the registrars in
time. In Saluda township the book did
not reach the registrar until some ten or
fifteen days before the election, as
we are inlormcd by Col. Tanner, the reg
istrar, and when it did tench him, a
numlier of names had already been reg
istered, we were told by a number of re
liable men, in the hnndwriting of the
sheriff himself. In addition to this, one
of these registration books was very
mysteriously spirited out ol the office ol
the register of deeds at Columbus, and
has never been seen since, and there are
many democrats who say they have a
good idea as to who stole it.
TUB RAD 1110 IT.
Ewart said in his speech that it hod
been stolen, but only the Lord knew
who did it. When he made this an
nouncement there wns a gentleman
stnnding just outside the door who an
nounced that "the radicals did it," and
we think if Ewart wants a full investiga
tion into the .natter he might be able to
get at something near the facts in the
Crawford made a fine speech tn-dnv,
and so enthusiastic were some of tfic
democrats present that he wns forced to
go to Mill's Springs, ten miles distant,
in the interior of the county and make a
speech to-night. Mr. Ewart waa urged
to go with mm, out, as usual, declined
to submit to any and all currying not
on the bills. Crawford had a fine audi
ence at Mill Spring, the school house be
ing filled with ladies and gentlemen, who
expressed their appreciation by hearty
applause irom tne men ana nantlsome
bouquets from the Indies.
The republicans put out their candi
dates for county offices at Columbus to
day, and, if anything is to lie interred
from expressions by their lending men, it
cannot command the support of the
party in the county. The republican
ticket is as follows: For the legislature,
lleni Thompson ; sheriff, John Hampton ;
clerk, Robert Ahrams; treasurer, Henry
Gibbs; register of deeds, Hransom.
The democratic candidates opposed to
them are: For the legislature, ohn Mc
Furland ; sheriff, 0. 8. Nelson ; clerk, J. P.
Arlcdge; treasurer, Thomas Ruppo; reg
ister of deeds, Ambrose Mills.
The democratic nominees are all good
men, and ought to he selected.
We were told to-day by oneof the most
reliable men in the county, that not less
than fifty republicans had voluntarily
told him that they never intended to
vote the republican ticket again, The
election will show how much they were
in earnest. One thing seems certain, the
republican vote in Polk will not be in
creased. J. P. K,
Saluda, Oct. 6. At exuetly 1 2 o'clock

Crawford, knowing he wns in a republi
can community, seemed equal to the oc
casion, his arguments were well laid
and every word burst like a bomb
shell in the republican camp. He
spoke for one hour. Mr. Ewart started
out by laying he never acted on the de
fensive, when in fuct his whole harrangue
wns an attempt to shelter himself and
clear up his record. He flopped about
like a lost man. His discussion of the
tariff was the most flimsical thins we
ever heard. Mr. Crawford in his re
