COI.UMIMA, December 8.--Special :
Early in .Novoinbcfiifh^Hhto_ depart
ment of agriculture announced the
crop estimates of its correspondents,
after n careful tabulation, and accord
ing to these estimates tho yieUl of j
cotton this year was placed at 039,000
bales. Thov reports of the correspon?
doubt, on which this (stimme was
based, wero made ubout Septen)uer
20, when tho plant looked promising,
hut later in the season it became ap
parent thnt dry weather and unusual
ly early frosts wou'd greatly affect tho
yield, and at tho time thc figures were
published tho statoniont was made
that tliey wero probably too high.
To make sure of tho facts Commis
sioner Butler some weeks ago sent out
to his township correspondents for sup
plementary cstjmates of tho cotton
crop Several hundred replies have
hoon received of tho average date of|
December 1, and a tabulation just
completed shows that thc crop of 1881)
is only 543 20S hales, against 558,000
bales last year, a decrease of nourly
15,000 bahs. Tho loss of 90,000 bales1
from thc September estimate is ac
counted for ii (?it only by drought and
early frosts, but hy the backwardness
of the plant and tho extent to which

Thoro has boon somo discordant
eloments in tho Baptist denomina
tion from timo to timo which havo
found expression in tho organiza
tion of now churches with somo
modification of tho original faith.
Thoso eccentric movomonts like
oxeroBoncos in tho animal and
vegeto bio kingdoms havo sorved
tho double purpose of affording an
escape valve for disorganizing and
disente gm tin g iniluences and in
tensifying and t.*onsbJidaiing thc
supporters of tho truo faith. Thc
first of those innovations was pro
pagated by Ben. Randall, un un
educated man, but of sound sense
and fervent pioty. Ho remark cn
passant that ignorance and corrup
tion are convertible terms. Mr.
Randall espoused tho cause of thc
Baptists on tho mode and propel
subjects of baptism, but opposed
their ctilvailistio principles advo
cating ns more consonant with tb h
I interpretation of tho seri pinkos tb. c
doctrine of Afminiahs, Like al'
new sects they were assailed wi tl
terms of reproach, being callee
Ran dal iles, Gone rill Provisioners

Baptists. It would be 'instrtic
ti ve to follow and portray tin
effect of this divergence, but ppact
forbids. We will only remark, an<
we do so with the greatest pleas
ure, that although iii numbers the'
are small and had their beginning
under the leadership of an ignc
rant man, they have fjcivcn specia
attention to the causo of educa
tion, and in testimony of their en
terpriae in this direction have sc\
oral colleges to which they cai
point with pride and congratul?
tion. It is loft with tho futuro t
dotermine whether ui'idor tbeligh
of instruction they will roturn t
the original faith. The second c

ated tho duty of women in hor
relation to the church and paid a
glowing tributo to tho untiring
zeal and steadfast dovotion of the
Misses McIntosh and Coker, of
Society Hill, for the advancement
of its interests. Tho Pastor of tho
church in k s usual, felicitous style
made a deoply impressive appeal
to tho children, and wo have no

a liberal contribution to tho mi'3-1

We cannot refrain from remarking
that no estimate can be made of
the strength ar d power of woman's

long lingored oven after public
sentiment had made tho exocutior
of obnoxious laws impossible. Ir
tho memories of that mastor o
foronsio eloquonce, Patrick Henry
wo find one episode, tho emi

apology for ita transcription. "Ii
Virginia on Juno 4, 1768, thro
Baptist ministers, John Walker
Lewis Craig and James Child
were taken boforo the Magistrate
and bound over for trial ns dis
turbera of tho poaco" charged wit1
preaching tho gospel, their accu

aman "without putting a texte
Scripture down his throat."
Thiie trial waa mado memor;
bio by tho eloquent Patrick Hem
appearing for the accused. C
hearing of their arrest he . roc
sixty milcB to. bo present at tl
trial, and volunteered his servia
to dofond thom. Seating lumsc

papers and then addressed t
court. He dwolt on tho eharf.
"For pror.ching the Gospel of t
Son of God." He asked at \
eloao of a most eloquent appe
"What law havo they violated
And then for a third timo in
slow dignified manner ho lift
his eyes to heaven and waved t
indictment about his hoad. T
effect was oleotrical. Tho co

Mu. EDITOR:-Asa reador of youc -
worthy paper for two yoars and a halfx
please give mo. space to say that re
cently I wroto a short nrtio?? to tho
Peo Deo Alliance headed,
"WHY IS IT ?" - tho Donio(irat8
of tho South toll us, tho negroes
of tho South, that 'they aro our
best friends. This ought to bo
true in word, dcod and act.' I al
ways thought white and colored
ought to yoto together, as wo wore
together in all but politics. Why is
it if a negro commits tho least offence
it is published, but if ho dons any
thing commendable nothing is said
about it? Wo havo no objeotiou to it,
but why not publish our good deeds
from polo to polo and from seaboard
to mountain top as well as our ovil
Now, can any fuir minded mau who
Btands up for right, truth and justico,
Bee anything in tho- above articlo to
call out such a bitter reply os heads
my article-"Hang Rev. A. Mc
Lees"-just because he asked a civil
(ind moral question ? It ii a digres
sive reply to my letter. I am a born
son of South Carolina, -and nevor
voted but onco iu 1113' lifo, and that
was in 187G. I have preached in
thirteen counties of the State, and.
wino of the beat w'uito mon in tho
"5lnto and in this county havo heard
tue prottch, and kuow I preach tho
gospel ned not pditics; and yet tho
3d i tor of the "Alliance" wants a chris
tian minister and a law abiding citi?
:en hung for nsking a civil question.
I think he should liavo replied in a
nilder tono to such a conservativo
otter na mine was. I nm a conserva
.ive Republican, and know that tho
nt?ro?ts of tho white and colored aro
usoparablo. Tlic reply to my letter

When Christmas bells are ringing
Around us everywhere,
Vnd snowy gems are swinging
Like spirits in the air,
iVe laugh so loud an merrily
We feel so wonderous gay,
Wc cjuitc forget some eyes are wet
With tears on Christmas day.
When Christmas bells are ringing
And friends we love arc near,
Their laughter and their singing
Are pleasant sounds to hear;
But while with love and jolity
Our bosoms overflow,
Some turn to .weep tor those who sleep
Beneath the church yard snow.
