?TOlirttS?? recent proprietor, Mr. Frank

TO THE PUBLIC.
^retiring from the proprietorship 'of
the Obaxgeburo Times, it is but proper
tjtnt I should acknowledge my thanks to j
the citizens of UWingebufg for their past;
patronage-and favor ; and in disposing of
tho paper and it3 editorial management
to Mr. James S. Hey word, I beg leave to
bespeak for him a still more liberal pat
ronage.. . . Very Respectfully,
FRANK P. BEARD.
-ho *ti uT? WftB?B^TlBWs:
h.,u^ mann'?':i 4^-. '. ... :
i Again I cOjino forward, to bespeak your
assistance in supporting an organ in our
midst which will firmly, and independ
ently qf,alkparty- spirit- battle "iigainst
the corruption which, in public offices and
political circles pervades our entire State.
Bly'former .intercourse had everything
in it to conduce to my pleasure, which
YliV' tri*? "
leads me to'hope for success on returning
to ^umfctfie control henceforth of the
Times ; and I eatfttbt too fully express
the wann thanks I owe to many, friends,
both for their; expression. of approval as
to my fprnicr efforts and for their express
ion ?f a Qftsire' that I would again take a
position that \Vouhl prevent tho Times
from, continuing its adherence to either
of the" evil choices which have been offer
ed to the good people of our down trod
den State, by the two factions of the
dominant party. My purpose is to main
tain those principles under which I first
solicited your patronage for the Times
and from which, after my connexion had
for some time ceased, I am sorry to say
it fell away. This I, with you, fool to
have been a betrayal of your confidence,
in which J would have you distinctly to
understand I had no part whatever: With
most pleasant reminiscences of the past
and entire good will toward all. I renew
our relations. Respectfully,
JAMES S. HEY WARD.
South Carolina suffers not so much
from Republicanism as from' dishonesty ;
and lack's Democracy not so hutch ns she
needs upright men in position. The duly
of the hour therefore consists not in quar
reling with his party so much as the
character 6r a candidate. Though wo
might readily vote for a Republican wo
can not support under any cifcuiHitar.ccs
one who publicly denounced and in the
main believed generally to be a thief.
You know that we are in political > creed
a Democrat; and if as we understand the
.name has fea^a brought to represent that
party in the State which is opposed to
the theft and robbery which overrules
iis, then are we in verity Democrat aid
this paper a Democratic paper.
- Moses may suit, some and Tomlinson
may satisfy others; but we shall support
neither. Indeed, some may deem it a
duty to saddle the state with' one or the
other of these hieb, out this wo cannot
see. In our former effort We voted for
M. C. Butler alone of the candidates,
and now we purpose to support only those
men, who v.'o sincerely believe, when
elected to office, will be not only- efficient
but also honest public servants*'
Wo have a preference for both1 party
and color, which the Urgent necessity of
the State demands and we are willing to
lay aside; but that the salvation of South
Carolina calls upon hor children to be
tray her to the control of any individ
ual robber or set of robbers ; or by a
cowardly poliey of temporary self-degra
datiton to prostitute their sacred right of
ballot; v?'d ticvef shall, hay; never can
believe. Self respect is life virtue of
life, and the man who once bows his neck
to the yoke, will ever after carry the
bend of the neck though the weight bo
taken off. The prisoner who has once
worn gyves at the ankles will spraddle
in his gait over after.
Last Saturday the 21st will for a long
time bo renlehabereo! in bur towli by nil
quietly disposed people as one of the most
disagreeable days that it has ever been
'cur ill fortune to fall upon. For this are
we deeply indebted to the RopvibitoaMs of
the State. We enjoy in common with
almost all our sister counties the Radical
party which has, just now, such a split
^in it?s whiskey can not fill or heal. Two
weeks ago one Jamison a prominent
splinter on one side of the split, a repre
sentative hence to the State Legislate.k>
and at jptesent a candidate for pre/morion
to the Senate cm Vhe straight outj(or
Moses) 'ticket, held without opposition or
interference a very quiet orderly and, as
to numbers, respectable mass -meeting, ot
which he made a highly Creditable cftbrt
at public speaking? shewing up the op;
posing ranks pretty well irad paying most
particular attention -to his individual op
ponent for the Senate; 'one Byas, who
?incontinently fled from the stand, saving
that'his artillery of abuse he would retain
until tile meeting which would take place
In the interval Bamisod appoints the
same'day (last Saturday) for the assem
bling of voters at their several precincts
to elect delegates to the county conven
tiou which ' has the nomination of the
county ticket. This little manecuver had
the sublimo effect of keying from the
chimes of Mr. Byas' oratory all Voters
not of this immediate precinct, and as
signed to those here tho election of dele
gate/, as a duty of the day ; thus narrow
ing the timo of their attention to Byas'
pccular claims upon their suffrage and
the virgin ethics of a struggle for repub
liertn honestyunder the Tomlinson ban
ne?, from the" *Rps *or fliat champion him
XVb' guanoed n't both meetings and
the b'rfly diifcrenco'toe-could observo; rfMd
it was quite marked, was the evident
more free use of soap and hair oil by the
Bolters, (or Tomlinson) splinters. These
looked ns if they soaped and then
greased freely, and tho others appeared
it is true, somowhat greasy, but appear
ently altogether so from a niggardly use
of soap. We concluded that if last Sat
urday's splinters were advocating honesty,
it was most evidently because they had
already been sufficiently "soaped" and
Jamison has been throughout on his
own ground and so far has had decidedly
tho advantage. -He made the best speech
out, and came to Byas' meeting last Sat
urday "on business" to see after that
.convention. The meeting Was held in
the Court House and after vory riotous?
proceedings was adjourned to the open
air for the purpose of free speech. Both
factions were at the highest point of ex*
citement. Whiskey and recrimination
bad set ablaze the ill temper and guilty
consciences (we presume^ of both parties
und of their respective adherents. The
Speakers were unceremoniously interrupt"
ed by questions and rlbtblls conduct,
which did not speak well for the innocence
of the "straight out*." At length the incet
ing broke up in a regular. Hot and for
some hours certain parts of the town were
taken poscssion of by a mass of enraged
negroes using most violent and obscene
language, many of them threatening to
burn down the town. The women were
even more violent than the men. To
hear their language was revdltiug, and
duiiug the riot they certainly showed
more of the beast'than the human.
Wo say hurrah for the split. Let them
burst wide open. But if the ears of de
cent people are to be thus invaded and
their property endangered by these '
wkiskified demons, it becomes the imper
ative duty of our foliow citizens to have
the scene of their family dissensions in
some locality other than our (own. If
this is impossible then it is best for every
man in town to be appointed town mar
shal and preserve by any uud every
means the peace of the town, while radi
calism holds its sessions of pandemonium.
Wo shudder to think of the degradation
to .which radicalism has brought us:
when they Agree we arc roldjcd, jailed $

our ears the vile filthy language of their

OUR COUNTY FAR*.
The committee haying in charge the
conduct of our County Agricultural Fair,
have, we undersUind, leased for that pur
pose, from T. C. Andrews, Esq., tho
owner of tho premises, the same buliding
which they used for ihat purpose last
year, known as Whittemoro's ?Soap Fac
tory. Tho bnilding is better adapted
?for the pufptfso than any other in our
town?tho greatest objection being the
want of spaco outside. The ?Socioty have
purchused for their pvirpose in future a
finely located and capacious tract, lying'
adjacent to tho new street, and it is only
from lack of time that arrangements havo
not been made for tho erection cf the
>neccssary buildings and .enclosures. Wext
year they look forward to having-an out
fit which will do full justice to this
the most important and controlling inter
est of our county. Tho energy which the
Society, through their committee, havo
displayed in bringing creditably before
[ the public,oind eliciting their, interest in
home industries deserves our highest on
comicm and most heartfelt support.
Seconded by tiic county as they deserve,
nnd we feel sure they will be, these gen
tlemen will give Orangeburg an honora
ble name among our sister counties. We
may expect, weather permitting, a very
fine Fair this year, and we hope that the
mooted tournament will bo no inconsider
able adjunct. Our county Fairs should
oo made to become to irM citizens of the
countrjr^fi generul ?iiy. of public rejoicing
and pleasant re-union for both the young
and the ol'd. * We hope shortly to place
before our readers the appointed time and
programme together, with the respective
committees. The Fair wilj be held a few
days previous to the State Fair, so that
parties exhibiting here enrt, with little or
?o trouble, transfer their articles from our
fair to Columbia, and be put ?o no incon
venience hy subjecting their animnls and
ingenuities to our inspection and compar
THE CAUSE ?tf MOT.
. The cause of the riot Ittst Satdrday
was the discharge trf a prstbl in the hands
of Mr. Petefe Crtnnort, who was guarding
a prisoner, arrested for disturbance in
the street, by Mr. James Cannon, our
We understand that a drunken, white
man had caused a disturbance r>t the
meeting, and. in being removed from the
stand, fell to the ground among the col
ored listeners, who crowded upon him,
when other v hite'mcn went to his assist
ance. Oue of tho colored men concerned
in the rumpus w*s arrested by the town
marshal, an*1, on account of the excite
ment, his brother assisted hm.as gward.
\Vben quite near the jail, a colored
mart from the crowd, attempted to rescue
the prisoner, when Mr. Peter Cannon-,
who had no club, struck at him with bis
pistol, which accidentally .exploded, and
the marshal, Mr. James Cannon, felled
him with his official club.
The negroes .swore that the man had
been shot udicj attemptedHhe rescue, und
that bin-attempt was made in behalf of a
prisoner who had been unjustly arrested.
Ami they rioted.
We regret the occurrencerxceedingljr,
as it subjected Mr. Cannon, who is one of
our most reliableyoung'tdfcfh and married
only ten days rtgo, to tile inconvenience of a
temporary jailing, from which he was,
however, in a few hours released, upon
giving the required bond.
On Mr. C's account, we are glad that
ft was no more than this; hut we do
think that if the colored man bad been
.shot his companions would havo been
taught this lc-ssori : that the foolhardy
man who attempts ?frhe forcible rescue of
a prisoner from the bunds of an officer of
law, no mutter how unjust the arrest may
%.ave Ikjcii, and is killed by the law offi
cer, can not lay any'blame to-thc officer;
Ao more thau the prisoner himself, "who
?trie.) to escape and is shot. The. presence
of the W\v commands obedience, and if
ict alone will purge itHc?!', by releasing any
party -unjustly held: ,
A \SAI> 'AlfeRAT.
We learn from our exchanges that dur
ing an altercation between Mr. Mont
gomery, one of our State Senators, and
Judge Melton, one of "our" candidates on
the "Straight-out" Moses ticket which al
tercation grew out of .political denuncia
tions, and abuse, that Mr. John J). Cald
well, a highly esteemed youh<* man *of
Columbia, was'killed by a pistol ?bot.
Tho occurrence is a very sad one in
deed. A more urbane and unpolitical
citizen than Mr. Caldwcll was nowhere
to be found, being without a known ene
my and everybody's friend, it is in every
way uufcrlunate that he should have thus
come upon this most untimely end.
With family and friends t? live for, and
mbftns to enjoy life, thus to be shot down
in a public saloon, in a quarrel in which
he probably had no concern, except that
of accidental presenco and a desire to
make peace and allay strife, is appalling
to think of.
