- A Young Tornado.
A tornado passed through Newberry ai
County, near Colony church on Satur- ,
(lay afternoon at about 1 o'clock. It
was not more than forty feet wide, but $
it was quite terrifie. It blew a hole
through the chimney of Mr. Lewis fi
Perkins' house and the bricks fell on the
hearth. Trees were blown down around
Colony church, but the building es-h
caped injury, as it was not directly in
the path of the tornado. The church
was shaken violently. The path of the t
tornado resembles a clearing made for
a railroad. Crops were not damaged

The following address by the presi
dent will explain the objects of the
meeting. Below also will be found a
list of the delegates:
Gentlemen: We have met here for the pur
pose of considering the various interests per
taining to the material progress of the colored
race and the State So in this intance our
iews should not be so contracted as to sup
pose that our meeting here is merely to pr orit
our race only. but we must view the matter
. touching the interest of our white brethren
Both races have a common interest that is
identical and inseparable. For instance, if
we would do an act that would affect or de
stroy the interest of the white race, it would
o perate equally destructive to the interest of
the colored race. All are in the same boat
nd most swim together or sink together.
Therefore, the sooner we recognize this fact
ad un ite with the white people of this south
land to aid in building up its resources in
every conceivable way, the bctt er it will be
for us all.
We are strictly a laboring factor of the
South, whose climate is temperate, congenial
ad productive or variety or staples; and it
has an extensive comnmercial advantage for
importation and exportation,to foreign marts,
Upon this fact we should not confine our
selves to one kind of industry hut should en
gage in all the veried industries that the coun
try would consistently admit ot. Our white
friends have no objection to our development,
but they are in hearty accord with our ad
vancement in any usetul enterprise. Let us
then begin the work of enterprises and let our
white friends aid -xs. They are morally
bound to extend us helplrg band. so may
God bless the indi',.rial efforts of the race.

A Card from Col. WV. J. Talbert Acknowi
edging that he Did Try to Answer
senator Butler in his A beence.
COtLUmIa. S. C., July. 30.-Col. W.
J. Talbert has sent the following to this
office for publ-cation:
To the Editor of The News and Cou
rier: Seeing by the papers that Gen.
Butler said that he would have replied
to me if he had been present, I desire to
say that he came to Prosperity the day
before the meeting and asked the privi
lege of the committee to reply to me.
Now, it is passing strange that he
should have made such arequest, when
I had not been mentioned in connec
tion with the discussion. It seems that
the distinguished Senator dlesired a
spat with me. Then it is more strange
still that he should after making his
speech and salivating all over the Alli
ance people and their demands, leave
the stage of action and not listen to
what I had to say, and even be followed
by the newspaper reporters so that no
report was even made of mxy speech,
and then charge me or the committee
with breaking the faith.
I wish to say that I was invited there
to talk AI"ance, and what 'I said I am
responsible for and would have been
more than willing for Gen. Butler or
any body else to have heard and replied,
and if he had wished could have done
so, as he was only a half or three quart
ers of a mile away, and left on the same
train that I did. No man, sir, shall
get up in my presence and talk about
driving a sixteen-horse wagon through
the Alliance demands (and he no
wagoner either) and expect me to be
silent; and I will also say that had my
distinguished friend been present I
woLld have said a good deal more, (of
course in a resp)ectful manner,) but
without being egotistical I said enough
to spoil every track he made with that
sixteen-horse team. I showed to the
crowd that he dodged the issue entirely
and (lug up a dead issue; that he helped
to bury himself and gro)wled over the
decayed bones (the Vance billi and did
not touch the living issues at all. In
conclusion allow mec to say that I do
not expect justi ? at the hands of tubt
newspapers, but I will be for the boys
face to face and tall the truth, and no
earthly power shah close my motuth.
