A Coming Address.
The Executive Committee of the
Farmers' Association met in Columbia
on Friday last for the purpose of dis.
cussing the political outlook and to
prepare an address to the farmers of
the State in regard to the establish
ment of an agricultural college and
other matters of importance to their
welfare. By the recent bequest of Mr.
Clemson eighty thousand dollars and
a large tract of land are donated to the
State for the purpose of establishing
such a college. This will not be suf
licient for the purpose and will' have
to be supplemented by State aid. To
secure this the Committee think that
the farmers will have to organize and
send only such representatives to the
General Assembly as will carry out
the expressed wish of the Committee,
as stated in the forthcoming address.
The Citadel Academy, as usual re
ceived a good deal of attention from
the Committee, but without any deci
sive action as to whether they will
oppose it in toto. The agricultural
annex, too, will receive some atten
tion in the address, while the phos
phate question and land scrip fund
will receive a full share of the discus
The main object of the address is to
lay before the people the reasons w by an
agricultural college should be es
tablished, and how, since the bequest
of Mr. Clemson, it can be done with
out much cost to the State, and it will
doubtless be read with a great deal of
interest by the entire people of the
A Merited Rebuke.
From our Columbia correspondence
it will be seen that Judge Kershaw
said on Monday morning after a state
ment made by Dr. Robertson what
almost every sensible man has wanted
to say every day since the commence
ment of the libel suit. ''nE NEws
AND H!aALD took occasion to say
several mouths ago to the News and
Courier "hands off" in this matter,
but instead of heeding our advice, it
has left no opportunity unimproved to
prejudice the public mind in favoi' of
the plaintil' in the suit, and has de
livered a daily argument in his behalf
on the testimony adduced the day
before publicat,ion. Dr. Robertson Is
perfectly able to take care of himself

Col. Edward McCrady, Jr., 01
Charleston, .has alinaye beeni consid
ered a man of undoubtedl honor, and
Dr. T. C. Robertson, of Fairfld and(
Rock 11111, and no0W of Columbia, .ii
known by all his acqunaintances and
friends as a man of undoubted veraci
ty and courage; so that when a chiarg<
of scounIdrelIsm on the part of eo Is
preferred by the other, society standi
aghast. Hence the interest in the Mc
Crady vs. Robertson suit for libel.
Charleston is exceedingly stirred up,
anid certain circles in Columbia are
also much Interested. The trial wai
allowed two days on the calendar,
It will consume at least a weck and a
half. The preliminary details have
already been given In the columns of
this paper, except that to the list of
Col. Mc Crady's attornecys should
be added the Charleston News and
Courier. Col. McCrady occupied sev
eral days on the stand, and as was to
be expected, made a very good im pres
sioni. WVhen lie got through the at
mospere semedto be very favor-abic
to is id. TenDr. Robersson got
his Inning, as the base ballists say, and
lie has been doing some pretty'lively
han.rnnng. "Tom s getin ther
with both feet," remarked a friend of
his on Saturday, just after he had had
a tilt with Mr. [H. A, M. Smith, Col.
McCrady's attorney, who has the repu
tation of being the shrewdest cross
examin'r in Charleston.
Mr. Smith is a small brunette with
the keenest black eyes you almost over
saw, and black beard, and Dr. Rob
ortson is a tall blonde with afinelhead,
a full board partly blonde and partly
gray, and a blue eye that is as clear as
the well in the bottom of which truth
is supposed to dwell. Mr. Smith is
of line family and high character and
spirit, and Dr. Robertson is likewise,
and the cross-examination pretty soon
developed Into a' running debate in
which points were made alternately
on one side or another, and during the
tilt Dr. R. proved himself the equal
intellectually of Mr. Smith in spite of
the professional skill and experience
of the latter.
"How is the case going?" was asked
of an attorney who had come down
out of the court-house, "is Smith get
ting away with Robertson?"' "I think
not; I think Robertson is getting away
with Smith. He has as much sense
and of course knows the case better.;
Dr. Robertson keeps his temper ad
mirably. Occasionally hegets riled, as
when Mr. Smith intimated that it was
much safer for him, an insolvent,
to write a letter to a non-duelist like
Col. McCrady, instead of to Col. Davie.
"I am personally rsponsible to any
body at any time for anything I say,"
was the answer." Both parties being
quite angry, the Judge called them to
order. "I beg pardon,". said Dr.
Robertson, "I have been trying to be
polite. He started it."
"That is true", said the judge.
The plaintiffs have about proven
their explanation of Col. McCrady's
remark that lie had been enticed into
the arbitration. The defence brought
Major Hamilton to contradict Col.
McCrady's testimony, that he had a
certain 3udgtnont, which Major Ham
lIton did emphatically.
It is utterly impossible to foretoll
what the verdict will be. From the
course of the trial it would seem that
the plaintiff's counsel will argue that
Col. McCrady testified truly, and that
if he did make mistakes of fact there
is no justification for denouncing him
vilely and outrageously.
The defence seem to take the posi
tion that they admit everything,
whereas the plaintifl's has maintained
the strict rules, refusing for instance,
to allow testimony to be adduced to
prove the irreproachable character of
Mr. Allen Jones. on the ground that
his character was not directly im
peached, although the charge had boen
made in assorting that he sold some
certain notes not belonging to hjn.
"Gentlemen of the jury," said Dr.
R., "If I don't prove every word I
charge give the plaintiff $10,000, all
he asks for. Let him give it to his
lawyers, they have earned it. Let me
get out of this litigation and I will
have a plenty of money. I'll never
put my property out of reach." The
defence will claim that the verdict
must be $10,000 or nothing.
Thu Judgu of ruurss is as valiis
Judge can be. lie has reproved the
plaintifF's side three times and the de
fendant's once, as before meintioned.
Ho charged the jury on Saturday
bet'ore adjournment that this is a very
serious and important case, amid the y
must not suffer any one to talk to them
When the Court convened oin Moni
(lay Dr. Robertson again took the
stand. Beforro answering any qites
tionls Dri. Robertson rose and asked
permissioni to state that thmd report of
his testimony in the News and Courier
of the 22nd(, as to what Col. ilaskeli
had said, is incorrect and false. Judge
Kershaw allowed Dr'. Robertson to
make this statement, and said that he
wished it understood that the press
has no right to isi'epresent testimony
nor to remark upon it so as to influ
eince the jur~y. After this the cross
examination of Dr. Robertson by Mr.
Smith, of Charleston, was continued.
The opinion is expressed that the jury
wvill disagree, but this seems to be
b)ased entirely oni surmise. Both sides
seems equally confident of success.
