OFFICE HOLDING IS DEMORALIZING.
There is nothing so demoralizing to a
man as the holding ofan office of profit.
He comes to imagine that the office is
his, and if any one else offers for it he
feels that his rights are being interfered
with. In addition to this the office
holder becomes a dependent creature ;
comes to feel that he cannot live with
out. It, his usefulness outside is conse
quently destroyed. Once he gits it, he
lives in dread of losing it. To see any
man in this condition is deplorable in
the extreme. A dependent creature
with no self reliance, without ambition
other than to hold his office and draw
the pay, he is to be pitied. We some
times see them not satified with one of
fice but pushing for two, three or more.
Young man, shun being placed in this
position. Aim higher,aim to accomplish
a good name and independence in some
of the avocations of life and preserve
your manhood. Let office alone, shun
it as if it were a leper, for jut so surely
as you once get it you will never be
satisfied without it. The numbers
and numbers of men who are hanging
around Washington to-day clamering
for office, beseeching the President the
members of the cabinet or the heads of
department for an office, are those who
have tasted the ease of office, they
have been thrown out in the change of
administration and now they go back
to the new administration begging to
be reinstated. Some of the Democratic
party are there too, begging and
striving for a place, willing to sell their
birthright for a mess of pottage. Let
us'be ifen; let us feel that if we will
work we can win. Let us resolve to
neve'r apply for an office of profit. Any
man who will work can win without

LETTER FRO)[ NASHVILLE, TENN.
Nashville has won for herself the
title "Athens of the South," by the
interest she manifests in education and
culture. She has fourteen:pnblic school
buildings, ten colleges and twenty
four seminaries, with 3,600 non-resi
dent students from every State and
Territory in the United States, from
Japan, Corea, Armenia and Germany.
The largest male institution in the city
is the Vanderbilt, the corresponding
female institution is Nashville College
foryoung ladies. A place of such de
cided like any culture is most suitable
for any educational gathering. The
annual meeting of the National Educa
tional Association will take place here
July 16-20. This is the largest assem
bly of the kind in the United States.
The association was organized in 1857
at Philadelphia. Its object is "to ele
vate the character and advance the
interest of the profession of teaching,
and to promote the cause of popular
education in the United States." Any
person in any way connected with the
cause of education is eligible to mem
bership. Membership fee is two dol
The citizens are making arrange
ments for the accommodation of the
vast number which the experience of
former years tel.s them will attend-the
association. Teachers and school trus
tees will be here, the former recreating,
sight-seeing, and learning, the latter
looking for teachers. Persons looking
for new locations can do no better than
visit the city at that time. There will
be a committee especially to look after
such, and introduce them.
One of the most helpful features
about the-associatlon, aside from the
discussions, will be the opportunity of
meeting the great educational spirits
of the country, and see and feel the
drift of minds upon that subject. Of
course it gives an occasion for a pleas
ant week's recreation at very small
cost. All members of the association
get -transportation at one fare, and
board and lodging in the city for one
to one and a half dollars per day.
Persons from Newberry can come
pend a week and return for twenty
ive or thirty dollars. And for fifty
tollars they would be enable visit sev- I
ral points of interest, such as MamI- I
noth Cave, St. Louis, Louisville,
Iouteagle, Fort Donelson and the

Last Friday was the annual field
Iday of the Athletic Association. Foul
or five other institutions had represen
tatives on the field. Medals were given
for running, jumping, kicking, put.
ting 16 pound shot, 16 pound hammer,
throwing base ball &c. All literary
exercises were suspended for the entire
day. Early in the morning some one
yelled "yi, yi, yi, yip. Van-der-bilt."
Another fellow answered with "yi, yi,
youp, Se-wan-er in the soup." So
when the day was done, Vanderbilt
gathered up her trophies and counted
them, nine out of the fourteen medals,
and v'ictors in the base ball and lawn
tennis contests. Sewanee, the rival of
Vanderbilt, carried off one medal. The
other medals were divided among the
The most attractive feature of the
day was the game of ball between
Sewanee (The University of the South)
and Vanderbilt. These institutions
are said to have the best team of any
in the South. An immense crowd
gathered at Sulphur Spring Park tc
witness the game. The first three
innings were goose eggs for both sides;
then Vanderbilt 2 and Sewanee 1; then
Vanderbilt 6, Sewanee no'hing. The
Vanderbilts dropped itheir eight and
ninth innings, allowing Sewanee tc
play on. When~ the game closed at
sundown the record was S to 1 in favor
of Vanderbilt. Notwithstanding the
fact that-Sewanee beat Vanderbilt on
Saturday previous, she declined to
meet us again. Our playing for this
season closed with this game.
In the evening at S o'clock the inter.
collegiate oratorical contest took place
in the hall of the House of Representa
tives. Men from three colleges con
tended for the prize--a gold medal. In
spite of "yi, yi, yip, Van-der-bilt," and
"rah, rah, ree, Se-wan-ee,'' the Clarks
v-ille man carried off the prize. Every
body was pleased with the discussion,
notwithstanding the fact that we were
beaten in the most honorable of all the
contests of the day.
The last scene of Field Day was
late at night. As I sauntered up the
path towards Wesley Hall, half think
ing about half a dozen tnings at once,
half wondering at the beauty of the
canmpus, comparing it by snatches
with the descriptions of the CambridgE
campus, suddenly my ear caught a
sound. It was an orator pouring forth
a stream -of eloquence as big as the
Nile. A medal was at stake, Foun
ders, and the time almost at hand.
While feasting my ears, my eyes
caught a belated theolog coming irl
with his girl. He was speaking of the
merits of the speeches, and how much
he enjoyed them. She replied "1
Ithought them very common, the boys
make speec-hes about polities and
socialism and government so much til]
they have become chestnuts to me. It
does seem to me that a walk through
this campus at an hour like this would
suggest something more refreshing
than those old dry snbjects." They
passed out of hearing, and I went up tc
my room trying to digest a few thought,
on "mysticism." ,T. M. H.
CAROLINA AND THE FLAG.
Maj. Gilchrist Replies to Gen. Sherman's
[By Telegraph to New York Herald.]
CHARLESTON. May 7.-General Sher
man's criticism abont South Carolina
troops parading in New York at the
Washington Centennial without Uni
ted States flags has caused some feeling
among the soldiers of this State. Maj.
R. G. Gilchrist, who commanded the
Washington Light Infantry in the pa
rade, sa d to-day:
"General Sherman exhi.its his usual
malevolence toward the South in pre
suming an evil intent, when it was
purely accidental that there was no

the South Carolina companies, save the

them. I certainly did not when we

"It was the purpose of the Washing

flag extant in condition for parade, and

A REMARKABLE CASE.
The decision, to-day it is thought,
probably has been the most interesting
and hardest contested and most pro

history of this country. Over thirty
years ago, Justice Wayne of the United
State Supreme Churt, said that when

iad then been before the court five
imes in one form or another and has

irst suit in the case was brought by

In one of the published speeches

a Senator from Georgis at the time,
was the accredited representative of
South Carolina in Washington during
the troubled days for that State iime
diately succeeding the inauguration of

to the "fraudulent" President will

Fraud hai Making Appointments.
The Charlotte postmaster hasr
ceived notice that Harvey Withe
spoon, mail route agent on the C., C.
A. Railroad between Charlotte ai:
Augusta, has been removed. TI
communication bore date April 29tl
though it wvas only received in Cbs
lotte on Thursday, nine days aft
This "date" is probably accounts
for by the fact that the civil service Ia
in the the mail service went into effe<
on May 1st, and that discharge pape
were nmade out in blank name, dati
and signed before May 1st, so as to el
able the Department by a fraud to d
capitate Democrats at will.
Jim Hagler, colored, succeeds M
Witherspoon. The latter has not y
received official notification of hisr
moval; but he is expecting it by
early mail, as soon as the Departme:
gets time to catch up with its fraud
Mr. Witherspoon's average is ov<
99, so it will be seen that "that litt
breeches-maker of Philadelphia,"
not as anxious to improve the servi<
as his pious ways and pious promis
led some people to believe.

Newv York has covered the course, 2,8
miles, in the unprecedented time of

the record of the Etruria, hitherto tI
queen of the ocean, by 2 hours and

great record was made on the secor
trip of the new steamship, before
could be reasonably expected that hi

from long exercise, the performan<

both Southern and Northern papers
during the war, and letters of Gen.

A COLORED LUTHERAN SYNOD
The First in the United States Just Organ
ized in North Carolina.
[Special to The Register.]
CONCORD, N. C., Maya 14.-The
Evangelical Lurheron Synod of North
Carolina has just held its 86th annual
convention in this County, seven miles
east of this place. This session was a
very important one in many respects in
the history of the synod. In this Synd
there are several colored Lutheran min
isters. Upon their own petition
they were organized into a separate
Synod, to be called the "Alpha Synod
of the Evangelical Lutheran Church
of Freedmen in America." This I
believe, is the only separate Synod of
Lutheran among the colored people
ever organized in this county.
