Ottt State Convention has met aud
endorsed the Cincinnati nomination of
Ctrcelejr and Brown as the proper thing,
ami tuTording to the South the only
clmuce of changing the complexion of
national politics in such way as to admit
of our taking some care of out selves at
homo, and not heiug held down by the
partisan exponent of a liberal Govern
ment at Washington D.C., while we are
being robbed at home by an horde of the
worst harpies and most bare-face robbers,
whe were ever floated into notice and
position by the untoward turn of events.
The chances aro that the national Dem
ocratic Couvcution will, at Baltimore
next month, likewise endorse these men,
and lei the whole South be arrayed once
more in behalf of an honest government,
owe freo from bayonets, political disabili
ties, and robbery worse than activo war,
the prison house and confiscation. And
now, whether we can get a majority in the
State for Grceley or not, still it is the
duty of every man in the State not to be
idle but both vote and work, and aid tue
effort of his compatriots to work out their
und his political redemption.
Our County has met with another sad
loss in tbc death of Capt John T. Jen
nings, who died on Monday eveuiug of
last week. He was an intelligent, ener
getic and successful gentleman; kiud
hearted to all, and enjoying the respect
and love of many friends. He will not
only be mourned by his friends, but will
be ndjjscd by the County at large. With
out being prominent at any ti(uo in a
political sense, he was one of those upon
whom the County rested for material
prosperity and advancement. His health
had not been good for some time
The community was very much enli
vened by the Elliott Fair, which was held
iu the Whittcmore Building now univer
sally devoted to public amusements that
require bouse room and shelter. It was
held on Wednesday and Thursday nights,
nud was a complete success; duriug which
everything requisite was brought quietly
und unostentatiously to bear, and the
benefits of tact nud energy fully reaped.
It was not only the pleasure of the ladies
to work zealously for the Elliott?, but
they made it a pleasure to the citizens
who went there to contribute their quota
towards assisting the enterprise. Orna
ments artificial, real, substantial, com
bined with beauty and taste to make con
versation agrecablo and contribution
ruther a privilege than other wise. This
und the tournament has kept us from
Mtagnating thus far into the summer. Eet
us look for something else to stir up the
blood and keep the young people alive.
The city fathers have tbc Dolly Vardcn
Avenue in the interesting state of ?'wheth

to have something, a croquet ground or
a skating rick or another fair, though
wo doubt exceedingly whether our vil

TEE NEW STREET.
*Mi:tBi:? F.uiT?its:?I si your Just, issdc
there appears what purports t? bo au ar
gument iu lavor of plaintiff in tbo great
ease of "Streut or no Street" over the signa
ture of "O. P. O. Deblock." As I purpose
to say a few words on behalf of the defend
ant iu this case, and desire in so doing to
shorten wherever I can, I might begin
by abbreviating your correspondent's
'noin de plume,' as it is difficult to write,
and I may have te write it several times.
I presume tho name means thntsapo
uaccous camphorated liniment composed
of solution of soap and ardent spirits,
and sold in small vials__under the name
"Opodeldoc," so, for fhort, I will call
your correspondent simply "liniment," it
is more easily written. Now, theu, in
his communication your correspondent
promises by telling us that all said here
tofore by the anti-street citizens amounts
to assertion. Ho wants facts, but I look
in vain through his argument to iiud out
anything more than assertions on Jus
part, without any facts in support of his
position, I take his whole argument,
and silling out the vast amount of chaff,
with great difficulty discover his proposi
tion to be this :
That inasmuch as there are some de
sirable lots in Russell Street, the owners
of which arc unwilling to sell at any oth
er price than that fixed by themselves;
therefore, there should be another street
cut on which the people can build, when
the grand influx of settlers takes place,
which "liniment" prophesies.
2. That at some future day there will
be a demand for lots, and that therefore
on irrespective of the present condition of
our people, we should not wait for the
demand, but make a street at once. I
gather these as his propositions summed
up ; and I imagine his argument will so
strike any one who rends it.
Now, I presume it will be conceded
that the lot owners in Russell Street have
a perfect right to estimate the value of
their property at just what they please,
and no power on earth (save, perhaps,
the despotic, arbitrary power under
which wo now exist) can compel one
single lot owner to sell his property at
an}' less amount than his own valuation.
If persons desiring to purchase these lots
arc unable to pay the price demanded,
then so much the worse for the purchaser
and peihaps so much the worse for the
lot-owner who may desire to sell, and yet
be unwilling to sacrifice his properly.?
If it holds good as to the owners of lots
on Russell Street, docs it not equally ap
ply to lot-owners in every part of t'ie
town? Then, when this new street is
made by which so many persons will be
accommodated with "desirable building
lots," will not the same right be awarded
to the lot-owners on that new street, as
the lot-owners on Russell Street enjoy, of
fixing their own price ou their own prop
erty?of fixing a price beyond the means
of purchasers?of refusing to sell at all?
How then can this new street hold out
any certain inducement by which this
vast horde of immigrants will be drawn
here to settle? Is there not the same ob
jection as to Russell Street? Have none
of these lots yet been bought up for spec
If, then, the new street will do no
more for purchasers of lot.s than Russell
Street has done; what benefit, tints far,
will the new street afford? wherein will it
tend to the increase of the inhabitants of
Orangeb?rg? Now, "I/inimcnt," chaff
ing, says : "Because a scheme does not
"suit them," (i. e. tax-payers) "they are
"opposed and cry "cut bono." It is
"about time that men should forget the
"old rule (which?) and learn to act for
"the very interest of the whole commu
"nity." What old rule be means, I don't |
know ;but all good citizens agree that the
public welfare should be paramount no
doubt; yet all good citizens have a right
to bo satisfied that, in making private
sacrifices tho good of the whole is ad
vanced, before they arc called upon to
make such sacrifice?; and I say that the
bare assertions of "Liniment" do not de
monstrate anything?they convince no
one that the "scheme" will benefit tho
public one particle. I say that while the
public good?the benefit to the people?
should be tho first consideration, it must
be demonstrated that the good contem
plated is beyond a doubt for tho general
good of the community, before the rights
of private individuals are invaded and
they called upon to contribute by sacri
fice or otherwise to that general advance
ment. Dot us again look, then, for the
good which this pnposed schemo will
effect to tho public, and then let us sec
what citizens arc called upon to contrib
ute cither iu money or otherwise, and
then nsk, 1st, it' it be a public good tit
nil, und if so,is it cotrim disunite with tho
sacrifice made to attain it ?
1 Oriingeburg, according to the last cen
sus, 18(51), contains hut a little over 1000
inhabitants. I doubt much if there has
been any perceptible increase since that
was taken (except in babies?as to which
I give it up?and they don't need streets
just yet.) Tho busiucss part of tho town
is almost wholly confined to liussell
street, to which there is easy access by
cross streets to all the inhabitants. The
stores (with hut ono or two exceptions)
all open on Russell Street. The street
runs through the town, and by it farmers
enter the town, principally, from East
and West. As a thoroughfare it has
been found abundantly convenient and
roomy for all the years gone by?for all
the time preceding this expensively pro
gressive age; in all the good old times,
when people were not taxed (so as to
know it) and could well afford to build
new streets if needed. Now this radical
view of progress conies in. What was
good enough in the good days?what is
good enough now?must givo way be
cause this is an age of progress, and wo
must go with the age ami pay dearly for
our passage too. A new street must bo
opened, and when conservative citizens
ask "cui hono" the age of progress won*
der?. Wo ask again, "cui bono?''
What will this new street effect for the
public good ? not what it may do for a
few citizens, who want to sell lots on it;
hut "pro bono publico?" Lot us sup
pose it opened. Commencing with 60
feet to the West; narrowirg down to 35
and 30 feet, so as to avoid some private
residences, and then passing these and
reaching other private lots, it spreads oat
80 feet wide down to the Railroad. Jiet
us suppose it opened, what then? Is it
supposed that the farmers bringing their
cotton, cither from the other side of the
river or across the railroad will u .<e this
street? There is not one farmer in 100,
who hauls cotton and produce to the
Railroad. They bring these things to
Orangeburg to sell and exchange at the
stores. These stores all front on Rusell
Street. To take this street would be out
of the way. They can only accomplish
their object by going where the mer
chants "most do congregate."
Again, almost all persons who como to
Orangeburg, come on busiucss in the town
with the merchants, and would have no
use for this new street. And even if'.here
be passengers coming up, or bringing any
goods or chattels, the business part of the
town is sought; and by actual measure
ment I believe the oul is as short as the
new street will be. It must be clear then
that this scheme will not benefit the far
mer, who is the must important citizen.
Will it benefit the merchant ? Will it bo
more convenient for him to haul by, or
transport his good:j to his store? His
store is on the great old thoroughfare.
I know of but one merchant whose lot
runs through from his store to this new
street, and who would probably use it. If
it will not benefit the farmer, ami but one
merchant (even if it will benefit him) and
no one else that wo can think of, where-;
in is this new street such a matter ofl'UB
j.ic interest, as to warrant the expense of
its building? 1 say rUBUC interest, be
causo with the rise and fall of lots pur
chased .on that street, the interest of a few
lot-owners is involved, and they do not
constitute the public. For this matter,
which does not present itself as a public
benefit, or as calling for public sympathy
and approval, what is the public called
upon to contribute? What are private
citizens asked to contribute ? Lot us soe.
First. The street is proposed to be mndu
80 feet wide, (and if made at all, it should
be no less) and to run from the R. R. to
its Western end. To run it from the R.
li. this width, it will cut through and
render comparatively worthless a number
of valuable lots the owners of which arc
bitterly opposed to any alteration of their
property. It will cut largely into the
burying ground of the Presbyterian
Church, uprooting sacred soil, and level
ing the. graves of the. dead who, undis
turbed, for so many years have, been at
rest. Continue this street of the same
width to the end, as of course it will be,
and it will cut into the private garden
and resilience of the Mayor himself from
^25 to 35 feet (this alone is a consideration
which should weigh with all who have
any regard for the presiding officer of the
town, for he, no doubt, has the same ob
jections to thus street that we have; but
he is too public spirited to let his, private
inconvenience inftuenco him in diverting
the Council from their cherished public
scheine.) It will then take oft' from other
good citizens' property from -15 to 20 feet.
This is what private citizens will contrib
ute to advancing the value of New Street
!oT?, Fur Ulis land taken by lV.rce from
i!i ? owners it is proposed to ptiy ut the
ra*,tc of pei- m*iv, not the price
which the owners fix ; they have" no voice
in the in.liter. Neither lite lot-owners
toward the Railroad, nor the Mnyor, nor
oj&er citizens at tbo "NVest end have the
slightest right to object to the price paid
ttma for damaging their property, per
haps ruining it. Those to whom the
rating places of their lamented dead are
d|SSr beyond valuation, cau say nothing.
Jas arbitrary price is fixed by persons
appointed under a rascally confiscation
Ms passed by a Legislature universally
jSpitted to be a disgrace to any nation,
/i v (1 by a Board iu which tho land-own
er is always in the minority. And how
^wer the land-owner may estimate his
property, the Town Council on one part
jmd the County Commissioners on the
ojher, close his mouth cffcclunlly. These
two, interested on the same side (pro
latino publico?) wrest a man's property
tra him nnd pay him jtist what they
^ . Jose to fix ai its value. "Was there
tfjjy more outrageous oppression ever
l?^ird of? There never was an adjust
ment of vnluo ever made by law or ar
tration, where both sides were not
rly represented, where the owner had
t some slight showing iu having his
operty fairly and properly valued.?
?t here are two corporations bent on
Trying out a common design, by which,
thout a single chance given him, with
hands tied and his mouth closed, a
rivate citizen is robbed of his property,
fbe possession of which is sacred and pro
fjcted to him by the constitution. Un-.|
dtfr the plan adopted, "Liniment" may
bo correct in fixing the amount of expen
ds at the figures he adopts. The ex
penses may be reduced still more. The
wad may cost but little more than the
grading, because this arbitary Board
have tbc same right to pay tbc owners
hut $1.00 per acre, as they have to pay
^25.00 It's a wonder they did not do it.
I But "Liniment" is 'supposing' things
only. I think "Tax-payers" fixed their
Estimate from data furnished by experi
enced gentlemen, and I doubt but that
their estimate is under, rather than over
ijthc true cost. So much for private con
tribution, wrongs and sacrifices. What
j/lo the public contribute? "Liniment'
says: "Don't wait for Ino demand, now is
the time to build your street. When
"immigration" sets in it will be too late'
(When immigration ssts in, so much the
better for those wh.) have bought up lots
to sell again.) In the name of the im
poverished people of the State stud Coun
ty, is this the time to burden them with
more taxes? Can t..cy bear more, now?
Has not the ellcct of Radical progress, of
which we bear so much talk, been to
crush our people down with taxes? Arc
not their lands sold, day after day, iu
huge bodies, because the owners are un
able to pay taxes? Have they not been
compelled to pay U. S. Revenue taxes,
Stato taxes, license taxes, town taxes;
and are they to have more laid upou
them ; and for what? "Liniment" says
"If it is to the iiitcr?st of the people to
?'have the street go through, let it go, but
"pay the owners the value." So say 1 ;
but who fixes the value? I have shown
a one-sided Board. Who says it's to the
interest of* the people? Why the Town
Council, and I suppose the County Com
missioners, but one of whom resides in
tow n (assuming that that residence makes
him familiar with the interests of the
people) and "Liniment" himself.
