THE REPUBLICANS IN COUNCIL.
The Republicans of the Pickens
and Easley townships held their
respective club meetings last week,
at which time they elected dele
gates to the County Convention
which meets here on Saturday
next. From what we have heard
each of these townships were re
presented by their best men,
though "they are few and far be
tween.'' The scarcity of these
men in our midst insures for some
of theni the continued favor of
"'Uncle Sam.'' But with themseves,
all is not "quiet along the Poto
mae.'' Dissension has found its
existence, and their small ranks
are broken into sections of oppos
ing parties. They are not pulling
together. Mr. II. B. Hendricks
has launched out with his crew
upon the raging seas, to be attack
ed by other representives of the
party. M'essrs. Folger, Barton,
Gary and others, with the per
suasion of their respective tongues
w ill, and are working against Mr.
Hendricks. A desperate fight will
be made next Saturday, as to who
shall go to Columbia as delegates
t.o the State Convention. We have
.seen this, "Hendricks will appear
in the County Convention with his
immortal ever loyal Colored Dele
gates, with the exception of Clark
Miller who 'vainoosed the Ranc.''
iHe brings with him from Pickeus,
Jeremiah Looper, Alex Pitts, coI
ore(, IHlenry Lawrence, colored,
and Tony Ferguson, colored. A
part of these, )erhaps all, he hopes
to vote in his favor.
Thlie following are the delegates
from this township who will doubt
les~s try to elect their men: E. II.
Baitoni, Luke I. Arial, A. WV. Fol
ger, W. F. Gary, Rev. S. Sulli
var., colored, and J. WV. Sullivan,
With this issue the MEENG;FR
is 6 months old. In that time it
has met with miucha success, and
we desire to express our apprecia
tion for the patronage which it has
received both at home and abroad.
Our subscription list for several
weeks past, has increasedl at the
rate of about 15 a week. It is our
intention to have it increase fromi
time to time, until it finds its way
into as many more housholds in the
county. There are many who re
side outside of the county, who
are the weekly r'ecipients of the

thanks, and the invitation to con- r
tinue to uphold us in our work ? V
A RIOT IN CINCINNATI.
The City of Cincinnati became
the scene of a terrible riot on Fri
day night last, and which lasted
until Monday morning. The
Charleston Riot of' 76 is small com
pared with that which has just ta
ken place in Cincinnati. It was
the outgrowth of a failure on the
part of a jury to conviet one Ber
ner who was charged with murder.
The case was tried and the jury
returned a verdict of mainslaugh
ter, whereupon a number ot citi
zens of the city became enraged c
and made an effort to secure the "
prisoner in order to lynch him.
Ile had beein taken from the jail by C
the county or State authorities,e
and was within the reah of the
mob. The mob was very desper
ate. It, buined down the Court b
In the riot 200 persons were kill
ed and wounded. The militia of
the city was unable of themselves If
to quell the row, and the militia of fi
the State was called out. At 11
o'clock p. m. Sunday, the city was
guarded by 2500 troops and it was
believed that the worst, was over.
