REFORM ! REFORM ! ! -Wc gladly
give place in our columns lo the fol
lowing local from last week's News
and Timex :
Senator Andrews left here on Mon
day last for Columbia, where he will
remain until the Legislature adjourns.
Senator Andrews is a hard working
representative, and we hope to record
many good things of him during the
present session.
POPULATION OK OKANUKI?UKC. COUN
TY.-According to the last census the
population of Orangeburg County is
as follows i Whites, 10,555 ; Color
ed, 23,515.-Total 31,070.
In 1870 according to the census
then taken the population was ;
Whites, 5,709; Coloied, 11,156.
Total 10,865.
This gives an apparent increase of
about lil percent. If these figures
arc a true index of the increasing
prosperity of our county and this
ratio is only continued for a few years,
the whole county will become one
vast city, in comparison which New
York City would pass for a little
country town. Dut this enormous
increase cannot be aceountod for on
tony other hypothesis than that the
census of 1870 is radically wrong, be
ing much less than the actual popu
lation. We have before called atten
tion io United States census of 1870
as gi ving Orangcburg C. II. a popu
lation loss thau 500 inhabitants
which was apparent to all as much
below tho real population. By the
last census we have the credit of have
ing a population of about 1,500 which
is probably correct. Orangcburg is
a growing county and no doubt pre
sents greater encouragement to im
migration than any other county in
thc State but this increase cannot be
thus accounted for.

Commissioner Phillips has his office

' COMMUNICATED.
ORAKOEBUUG, CH. Dec. 3d. 187?.
Afr. Editor:-I have learned from
good authority that T. C. Andrews
is just now showing how he np
predates honest Republicans by ma
king au effort to get Dr. Webster and
yourself removed from tho charge of
our post ofllcc. I am very glad to
learn that tho people here appreciate
your appartint effort to accommodate
them and serve thc public in your
management of tho olllce, and desire
no change, as nearly all the business
men of thc place have expressed
their satisfaction willi your arning?
incuts ami services. As for the peo
ple of this county we wish for n
more of Senator Andrews aj point?e:
to manage public funds until we cai
replenish our depleted Count)-Treas
ury.
It should be known at Washington
that the predecessor of Dr. Wehste,
was recommended for the position
by Senator Andrews, who had ai
honest Republican and good Post
Master removed to make a place loi
him. I now learn that Senator An
drews has aiiotlier opportunity ol
showing his honest intentions, in his
recommendations lo this ollice ami
signature to his bond lo the govern
iiient, by coming forward like an hon
est man and paying up in good faith
that deficiency in the accounts ol' our
former Post Master appointed Itv his
disinterested elf ?i ts as au honest re
publican ollicial.
Respi clluily Yours
