LARGEST CIRCULATION IN THE CO?NTY.
J. S. HEY WARD, Editor.
What we want for the South in the
Baltimore Convention, arc a short scssiou,
unanimity of action, nnd no democratic
nomination. A democratic nomination
would, from present appearances, be en
suring to Gramt his reelection. Yet, wc
think that the opposition to Grecley, on
the part of tho northern delegates in the
convention*/ Will' be both strong and deter
mined. We hope/ however, that the South
ern delegates will beuten who arc convin
ced that this being persuaded by the demo
crats of the North, who aro our worsts
enemies, is worn out; that the salvation"
of the South nuist be wrought out by the
South. And it we cannot get what wc
Consider for our preservation, let our del
egates withdraw from the Convention,
meet in Richmond, and tell the Soil(licm
people what they must do. Wc say tousr
because we believe that tho delegates will
speak the desire of the people; and in this
Case otthe white people of the South, and
whatever they decide is the necessity, our
emergency admits of no argument. The
North may be at liberty to theorize, but
with us it is not only a question of honesty
but one of race. This is what wc must
meet fairly and squarely, and aa a unit.
Let us wrangle as much as wc may, as
to the best measures to be adopted ^what
ever our delegates eventually declare to
be the proper action, let us adopt that
without a murmur, acting as a unit.

County politics run highland the vuri
Ous candidates are comingpo light, one by
one. Several politicdBg?cting& have tak
en place already in and about the county,
nnd those who are interested in such t lungs
go out pretty roALarly. The exodus is
noticeable in town rffc>stly by tho closing
tip of all the windows and doors in rogue's
^ row. Just at preseut, everything is love
ly, and every body's goose apparently
hangs high. The goal is yet afar oft, and
tho time is uot at hand for bolting and
being thrown out, &c., Ac. Wo arc not
in the ring, nor are we sufficiently posted
to represent accurately the ?.norme nnd
merits of each particular aspirant; but
our friends may rest assured that they
Will iu time bo presented with a "slate,"
which wc will carefully select and offer
for their favorable consideration; with ar
guments the most forcible wc can find.
In the meantime, we can but express the
Wish that as the crops arc already some
what backward, the colored people will
not waste too much of their time listening
to political harangues.
The ?RANOEBUEO County Biiji.e
Society.?This society had its second
annual meeting last Sabbath evening in
the Baptist Church at this place. At 8i
o'clock the President, liev F. Auld called
the meeting to order. Upon his taking
the chair the ceremonies were introduced
by singing tho hymn 'Bock of Ages.' This
was followed with a prayer by the Vice
President, Rev J. D. A.Brown. The hymn
"Lot everlasting glories crown," was then
sung, the minutes of tho last meeting read
und confirmed, and a full and interesting
report made by Kirk Robinson, Esq, who
Is the Secretary of the Society.
Lack of space and time prevent our
publishing this report which wo propose
to give in full in our next issue.
The report was upon motion adopted,
nnd a collection taken up, after which
upon motion of Rev T. II. Legare, the
following gentlemen were elected officers
fof the ensuing year.
Rev. F. Auld, President j Rev. J. D. A
Brown, 1st Vice President; Kev. A. Pope
Norris, 'id Vice President; K. Robinson
Esq., Sec'y, Treas.and I)cpositarian. Also
the following executive committee: Pres
ident, and Secretary, ex officio, Dr. T.
A. Elliott, Messrs. M. Glover, F. S. Dib
ble, J. II. Fowles, F. IL W. Briggmnn,
und J. A. Zcigler.
Tho election wns followed by an ad
dress upon the sourco, purpose, history
find influence of the Biblo by Mr. John
A. Hamilton,.who treated the subject with
graphic beauty, concluding with an elo
quent appeal to tho assembly to perform
their duty in behalf of disseminating tho
gospel. In conclusion a hymn was sung,
a prayer made by Rev SI r. Norris, the
L. M* doxoiogy sung, a benediction pro
nounced by Rev Mr. Brown, the meet
ing then adjourned.
The New Street is the topic of the day.
At every corner you are asked, "arc you
a street man or not? Aro you in favor,
of or against the street?" As we said be
fore we have been unable to sec any valid
argument brought against the street; that
\4, any thing to prove that it must be
detrimental. Still we are in favor of let
ting both sides have a fair showing in
our columns. Ono thing is sure: any
open space will be apt to relieve us in a
measure from the overflow of hogs, wi'h
which the town is infested'. This itself is a
thing much to bo desired. This opinion
we hazard; not however proposing to be
for or against hogs, as we have been
warned that this is a dangerous topic.
Run the street first for the hogs nnd then
run the hogs for the street.
"We are glad to hear that Mr Rowe
whom every body in the County knows
as uncle. Peter, who is the oldest mason
in the United States and one hundred
years of age, has entirely recovered from
serious indisposition, which a short time
ago threatened to prove fatal. Wc had
hardly heard that his relations were gath
ering around what they feared would be
bis death bed, when wo bear that he is
again up, riding and walking around as
usual?that is as if he were about fifty
years of age, which our readers know is
not by any means old. Mr Rowe is a
most remarkable man, who believes in
living and enjoying life?has been doing
so for over one hundred years nnd has
not died from it yet, but expects to have
another jovial reunion on Jus next birth
day. May health and happiness attend him
in the interim, and full joy then and there
after to the end of his life's journey.
Wc find the following enclosed in a
sub-confidential sort of way:
On the street, we heard one of "ATrie's
sunnics," of twelve years, give vent to the

Messrs. Editors.?The beautiful fish
ing smack, "Horace Grceley," was this
clay launched on the fast rolling stream
of the Edisto, and tho' unaccompanied
with the thrilling roar of Artillery or
the waving of Banners, yet the joyful
iips of the master builders and spectators
poured forth a volume of feeling, that
will not only tell well upon the table in
the shape of a Bell-Cow Trout and brass
aide jack fish; but [joints graphically to a
political, cpicuriau luxury that will be
enjoyed in the South and elsew here, when
the honorable name it bears shall be
placed at the helm of the greater Ship
of State. Slay the small ripple that radi
ates from; the little boat increase in vol
ume as it bears onward tho genius of
Reform, until it lashes the surrounding
shores of our unhappy country.
With due Respect.
NV?NpKHi'ul.?We had the pleasure
of meeting and conversing yesterday with
Mr. Frank Palmer, a gentleman well
known in the community, who, some
months ago, was known to have been to
tally deaf and dumb. After an ufllie
tion of nine years, caused from a gun
shot wound received in battle, Sir. Pal
mer is entirely restored to tho use of his
long lost faculties, and presents to the
world and his friends one of those cases
of the wonderful achievements in medical
science of which we sometimes read, but
seldom or never witness. Wo heartily
congratulate Sir. Palmer on his restora
tion, ami the consequent happiness it
must bring with it.?[Carolinian.

As to tho private lots, nil we have to
say is thisJ if it is to tho interest of the
people to have the street, let it go through;
and pay 4.he land owners the actual value
of the lands'appropriated lor the use of
the public. In running tho now street,
however, let it be laid off sftthnt while it
may accomplish tho object intended, it
will do the least possible injury to the
owners of lota through which it passes.
"Many Tax-payers" say that they can
sec no good resulting from it "at present."
By this they admit that it may become
necessary to have it in tho future. Now
it' the city fathers do exhibit a little
meto forethought and sea now what
"Many Tax-payers" admit may become
necessary in the future, "Many Tax-pay
ers" .have no right to complain. "The
People" and the city fathers will have
committed no error, but only s?en a lit
tlo farther, and recognized now a ne
cessity which "Many Tax-payers" admit
may hereafter exist. This is the whole
thing. It is a difference iu tim?.
Again, it is said, "so soon as there
springs up a demand for building lots,
there will bo a corresponding disposition
to furnish them." Show me, in tho past,
where this has been so. There has been
a demand for those very kind of lots over
since the war, and who of the "Many
tax-payers," have shown tho "disposition
to furnish them ?" Name tho lots fur
nisho l. I know that many persons have
left, who were desirous of settling in our
midst, because they could not obtain
suitable building lots. And 1 know fur
ther, that those who have built, in tho
majority of eases, have had to do so on
some one of tho roads leading into the
town, been Use they could do no better.
These are facts, and I have heard or read
that facts are stubborn things.
If, however, "Many Tax-Payers" have
any good and valid reasons against this
project, let us have them. But wc con
fess that the whole argument of "Many
Tax-Payers" does not convince us.
Any one who read said article cannot
fail to sec thai self-interest has swallowed
tip every thing else. Quit self now for
a lit tle while, und think of tho prosperi
ty of tho whole town, the true interest
of the whole pio pie, and tho welfare and
.happiness of your neighbors; Don't wait
for the demand. But hoid out tin- in
ducement. Dbnt wait formen to come
and ask for lots. But arrange ami fix
lots so that they will bo eligible, aud
invite emigrants to . t.me. ! nm iti favor
of another street on tho South side of
Main stree t, I wish that it was open n >w,
and I hope to see it opened at no distant
day. (). P. O'DKLDOCK.
