The dinner given for the benefit
of the Confederate Monument was
in every way a success. The viands
were choice, varied and abundant,
and everybody who dined at the

understand that a very handsome
sum was realized.
SALEM DEMOCRATIC CLUB.--A meet
ing of Democrats was held at
Salem church, on the 29th of June,
for the purpose of organizing a
club. An organization was effected,
and the following officers elected
by acclamation :-.
President-J. R1. Boyles.
Vice Presidents--Thos. Wilkes,
Jr., and J. Ml. Owings.
Secretary-W. J. Keller.
Treasurer-W. T. Pettigrew.
The second Saturday in July was
designated as the next time of
meeting, at which the committees
will be appointed and other business
transacted. This Club already
numbers over thirty members, and
THE ('OI.ORED FIREMEN.-The Hook
and Ladder Company was out for
parade on the Fourth, and present
ed a fine appearance. After march
ing through town, the company
repaired to the grove in rear cf
Capt. Jno. Smart's residence, and
enjoyed a fine dinner. On return
ing to town the men went through
several evolutions with their hooks
and ladders, and displayed great
skill and agility. The officers are
now supplied with handsome
trumpets. In this connection, we
are requested to publish the follow
The Winnsboro Hook and Ladder
Company return their sincere thanks
to the citizens of Winnsboro for
theie kind lhberality in assisting the
Company towards getting trumpets

J. B. MOMILLAN, President.
The Cedar Creek Club.
The regular meeting of this club
was hold at Dunlap's mill on Satur
day, President J. 8, G*unnell in tihe
chair. Several visitors were pres
ent by invitation. Major T. WV.
Woodward was asked to address
the club, which he did in a few
well timed remarks. He con
gratulated the people on the
magnificent results achieved by the
last campaign, and pic6ured the
changes that had taken place since
then. He 'was glad to see the sp)irit
displayed by the people of Cedar
Creek in organizing a club, and
congratulated1 them on having a
little leaven from Greenbrier. He
urged his hearers to stick firmly to
the grand principles of the party,
leaving aside all small innues such|
.as the fence-law and other unim.e
Capt. H. A. Gaillard then, by
request, addressed the club. In the
.condition of the State the party
must look alone to principle--the
question what particular individuals
should represent them was of com.
parative insignificance. Hie bie
lieved it was right for the people
to ask their representatives to give
-an account of their stewardship.
Hie than reviewed briefly the course
of the Legislature; and concluded
by counseling unanimity in ~ the
party, congratulating them that
no grave qunestion divided the
Denootiacy of Fairfield, but that
the organIsation is in full accor'd.
. Dr .S oisr nezt6 spoke.
IHe salsi there are no grave issues
before te #opIe, The O ht 'had
9 tqii 167O~ whfn~ ~a spite
of an overwhelming- Republican
vote, against the maclhiner;; of tho
State government, against the
whole power of the Federal gov
ernment, the people of Sou;h Caro
lina triumphed. We are now on
joying the fruits of that victory.
To fully reap these benefits the
party must be a unit during the
present campaign. There must
he no faltering and no divisions.
Mr. R. Means Davis then made
a few remarks on the situation, and
showed that the Federal elections
are also of great importance, as the
election of a president in 1880 may
bingo upon the complexion of the
next House of Represont:atives.
In conclusion he urged a full vote
at the primaries and a solid support
of the party nominations.
The club then proceeded to
business. The amendments pro
posed by the County Convention
were unanimously ratified. The
club then adjourned to the n.xt
r egular meeting.
FErAS TERVILLR R ESOLUTIOS.
Two Letters From Gentlemen who
Advocate the Views Therein Ex
Mn. D. R. FEASTER's LETTEr.
.Messrs.J Itdora NEwS AND HERALD:
We in this benighted "Corner" have
been favored recently with two com
munications signed Fair Play, one
of which was a citicism of the Reso -
lutions passed by Feaster
ville Democratic Club ; the other, a
reply to a communication wh'ch
appeared in your p.tper, sig ned, J
Hendrix McL.io. The object of this
article is simply to correct au error
into which "Fair Play" and a groat
many others seem to have fallen ;
I say here that J. Hendrix McLane
was not the author of the Resolu
tions, in fach was the only man in
the Club that opposed them, which
he did with all his might, but they
were passed notwithstanding his
assurance that they would meet with
the reception they have, by the un
thinking ; what did J. Hendrix
McLane do after these Resolutions
were passed ? Get in a lit of sulks at
a great many do ? No, he had the
manhood to say that he voted
against the Resolutions but as the
Club had adopted them, that he was
with us, heart and soul in the move
ment ; and he since that time has
proved "his faith by his works.'
As to Mrs. "Fair Play" (I am san
guine that it must be a woman)
dubbing our Resolutions "A New
Crusade" and calling J. Hendrmix
McLane "A Modern Nazarene" it is
simply begging the question, and
shows that she is devoid of ar'gu
mont, to sustain her position, or
rather in assailing ours, and has to
resort to ridicule ; and the success
that I see she hais met with, is to
make horself supremely ridiculou s
in the eyes of all thinking people,
and those that are capable of dis
tinlguishing between argument and
nonsenlse. I feel that I have subject
ed mnyself to the anger and the
scorn of the fair women of old
Fairfield, (and theore is none fairer,)
by calling "Fair Play" a woman, but
I beg to assure thoem that I do not
mean them any disrespect ; the
principal reason for my deoming
"Fair Play" a woman isi thiat I
scarcely thlink that any man in
Fairfield would have replied to a
communioation signed by the r'eal
name of the writor thereof, in the
manner which Fair Play did, with -
out signing 1his real name. Can it
be possible that suchl is a fact ?

Mr. J. H~endrix MoLane's Letter.
Af6sar8. .&ditore: Gentlemen,
The diffusion of knowledge among
an enslaved people is all that is no-~
cessary to prepare an avenu~e
through which thoy can pass out
from a condition of servitude into
the freeman's ltingdom. Thle same
tihing with full propriety I here ap
ply to the agriculturista of this
contry, at large, as well as
to this indi.vidual State. and it is not
at all unnatu1ral for some of those
enslaved, to hold on with education
al tenacity to their habits of slavery,

heard comnint up from ev(r q1lu;lrter,
nook and co'nlet', /'rah o'j Ia'se
is trimpltfientt, 'we ira e Iilled te
bear. So it is no liscouragement,
to the people of Fo-isterville, in
this farmers movement, to shake off
the shackles of oppression riveted
on them, by pernicious legislation,
and to revolt at the virulent influ-.
enco of the heinous practico of liti
gation, which together are crushing
us, and our calling into thedirt, and
which threatens to bankrupt every
member of the agrioulturiul ranks,
and to make serfs of them, and I eir
posterity after them, for all time to
come. 0:1 I would to G. 1, I could
ride through the aorial realms in a
chtriot of w tirhvin:l, and coal d
raise my voice like a trumpet of
thunder, I would cry out, and s.ty,
A WAKE, AWAKE, AWAKE,

palling condition. A (>d ti rough

of the whole l:m): i, commnand the-u to
marshal then ;ulves on(1 and a !, in
solid and deterin i t arrty a tin t
the o ncomies of labor and agricul..
ture. There is a spirit tife through -
out the country. vhicl m1otns to
never tire, never beoine dce.:pond
out, never give up, until the ill nssos
are enlightened and made free. I
for one am glad to) say I have en
listed in this holy work, and will not
rest so long, as I am ;a".le to give
it the least aid. I am in possession
of some facts, that a gre., itany of
my fellow farmers are nit acquaint.,
ud with, but they shall have thew.
I mean by the grace of Heaven to
give them the benefit of all I know,
or am able to g -tier, until honlest
labor hat triumpe d over its tvrants.
And gentleomen I hope you wi',1
allow inc reason tIblo splc in your
paper occasionally, for iny co,ntribu
tions to this good work. Y"En gonl
tlenen should feel much concern in
the ameliorat.)m an I prosperity of
agriculture. I know you are i deuti
fied is Lawyers with a system or
p rofession, that is antagonistic to
the protection and development of
agriculture. But one thing gentle
men, as sure as God sends us to
morrow, unless the farmers of this
country are speedily re''eved from
the mighty wrongs that are daily
practiced upon them, you will soon
have no use for a Ilewsapier. It
will die for want of supporters.
When I replied to "Fair Play's"
first letter, I politely asked Li e
Lawyers in the name of the 'e.ster
ville peoll, to moot us in this thing,
in friendly discussion. Thinking, the
negotLiaitions were being made wvitn,
one of the exponents of whom.
that had the manhood at Io ist to
atpprociato the im innor in which the
invitation was ofi'red, but the poo
creature has insuilted ou r courtesy
by his brainless braying. Yet "I
still challenge them to the contest
wvith the samfe good feelings of
respect, that characterized iy first
invitation.' NOw gentlemnan it 1f ty
appear that I htave madtce somei bold
advances, antd used some stroung as
sertions, the s:unoi I admit, and on'y
want the opp)ortulnity to adduce ar
gunment to support and substantiate
them every one, and wvill do it if
any responsible party, who objects
to thern, wvishes to throw bimisecf
in the contest as my opiponent. If
the challenge is accepted I ask
to, be apprised of it first by
private letter, I am willing
that the controversy be conducted
str'ict rules of civility, candor and
honesty, an arran;goment of this
kind agreed up)on, and ad
here to is all I ask, knowing it will
furnish my side, with a mea:ns of
producing just such information as
our p00opl0 need.
Ii m y as wveil gin some of the
reasons why we cannot, and think
the laboring class, as a whole, should
not endorse Mr. Gaillar'd as a rep)
resentative, and why wve opipose any
practicing L.&wyer's election to .t.he
M~r. Gaillard's opposition to
Judge Matckey's reelection to the
bench in this Juidicitd District, His
opposition to the Usury Bill, anid
the stand he took on the report
of the BIondl Commission, without
further enumeration are enough to
show that his action in the Legis-.
lature was in conflict with the true
interests of honest labor. We
admit that he is man of honor, arid
a gentleman, but these are not the
only qualifications to make a good
representative, but in addition to
these a man must havo a~ full kno)wl
edge of what his constituency needs
and wants, this knowledge I deny
Mr, Gmsilard having, and still rnore,
after a main has all these qualificai
tions, he should p0ssess enough
