KEEP TO THE RIGHT.
Wo respectfully suggest to our city
fathers, that a sigu board put up at every
approach to the town with the caution,
"Keep to the right," may obviate the
unpleasantness of disputes and collisions.
A flagrant disregard of this common
sense law has rendered the observance of
it necessary. Vehicles driven to the
right, and pedestrians keeping to the
right, will save much unpleasantness.
"OUR APPLES SWIM."
The board of trustees in accepting the
resignation of the Professors of the South
Carolina University, say, after ascribing
the action of the Professors to hostility
to the "Hon. Ileury E. Hayne," a col
ored student who was admitted to the
Medical Department of the University.
This board cannot regret that a spirit so
hostile to the welfare of our State, as well
as the dictates of justice, and the claims
of our common humanity, will no longer
be represented in the University, which
is the common property of nil our citi
zeus without distinctions of race." The
Board of'Trustees is the same in aim,
spirit, and intention, as the party to
which it. belongs. Usurping, taking
everything which belongs to the people
of the State, for the benefit of its dis
graceful party. Tho barefaced balder
dash, "Our State" as used by these brassy
individuals, has its equal only in tho
toast of the English cracksmau at Bota

The late Hou. Judge O'Neil told an
excellent anecdote of an unsuspicious
couple, who were wont in harvest time
to visit a cro?s road store, where the pre
paratory step to trading, was a full and
oft repeated treat of New England Rum.
The result was a good trade on one side.
On one occasion tho gudo pair were
homeward bound, and hud to cross a
swelling run of water. The old man
reaching the house called to the boys to
help mother down after hunting on either
side of the horse where the old lady had
been behind the old gentleman in doublo
style, thoy informed "dad she aint thar"
"go back and find her then" They went,
and in the middle of the run they found
the old lady poised with her ruddy nose
just above the water, bobbing up and
down in happy enjoyment of her bath.
"Not a bit more, thankee" said the old
lady, as the water rippled down her
tk roat?"I'm full." So with us^tiear Gov
ernor, we are full of Bills payablo, Blue
Ridge Scrip, Morton, Bliss & Co., &c,
&c. We don't wish any more issue of
"Bills Receivable" to help us in our dis
tress. Just look aft or the old score, and
rub that out, and we will hobble along
with what wo have. "Not a drop more
thankee, we are full."

Oranqeburg, S. C, Oct., 22.
Mr. Editor.?The remarks made by
mo in arswer to your "Please rise to ex
plain," appears to have aroused the in
dignation of Mr. F. H. W. Briggmaun,
Were it not that I desire to place my
self in a true light?(opposite to the one
.in which, hn jdjirf* jcao} i^?? ttj'A^
low citizens, I would no- "condescend"
to take any notice of his uncourtcous and
To exhonomto myself from tho blame
he would have the public attach to me
in regard to the Fire Extinguisher not
being purchased,T would say : On tho
25th of April, 1873, Council levied a
tax which was collected in the months of
May and Juno following, realizing the
sum of $400.
This tax as I formerly sta'el, was for
the purpose of aiding the Elliott Hook
and Ladder Company, to the amount of
$150, and to buy two or more Fire Ex
tinguishers for the use and benefit of the
Town. The balance to be used in de
fraying the necessary expenses of the
towu. The first appropriation was made;
the second was not, but the money to bo
used for this purposo, appropriated to
the last, viz: the -expenses of the town,
nocessary or unnecessary, as the cose
may have been.
Now because this resolution in regard
to the Fire Extinguisher, was not car
ried out, he would lead tho public to be
lieve that had it not been for my neg
lect of duty, the Firo Extinguishers
would have been bought, by saying :?
"Council would also have beeu able to
purchase one or two Fire Extinguishers,
if the Clerk had left his books in proper
order when he went on his Summer tour."
If Mr. B., will take tho troublo to ex
amine he will find this resolution is in
the minute book, and wns there when I
left. My books wore written up entirely
to the time I left, with the exceptiou of
one resolution, which I wns not able to
write before leaving, but left this to bo
filled up by with the acting clerk.
Mr. B's excuse for not discharging his
duty seems to me to be a very lame one.
What had the state in which my books
were left to do with it? Even if my
books were left in the manner he tries to
make peoplo believe, was there not an
acting clerk whom ho could have had
to write them its he wished, aifflL could
they not have proceeded with tnflr law
ful business tho same as if I had been
present? He certainly carried out his
object in other matters. Why not in
this ? Perhaps it would have taken too
much money?lakon from other objects
which ho bad in view. One of which
was the Amelia street drain, which passes
in front of his residence. I will say iu
regard to this drain, that in my first ar
ticle, I mentioned that Mr. Willcock in
formed mo that no vote had been cast on
this matter, and my recollection of the
conversation with him on the subject was
confirmed, when upon oxarojning the
book I found no record or allusion to
the matter of ditching Amelia street?
Under this impression I wrote my article.
Mr. "Willcock, after reading that article,
surprised me by saying that I misunder
stood him ; that a vote had been taken,
but had been neglected to be placed on
tho roiuute boos, but, that on the Bull
Swamp Bridge, no vote had boon made,
and that he would have voted 'against it
had it been brought before the council.
I suppose this was how tho mioundcr
As the resolution of the Amelia street
drain, was neglected to bo placed on the
book: why was not this sufficient reason
for not prosecuting the work m it was
pretended to be in the matter of the
Fire Extinguisher? Tho public can de
cide for themselves.
I was not present at the meeting which
voted this drain, but had I been, I should
have voted ^against it, for the reasons
that the Town was scarce!v in a condi
tiod to bear the incumbent expenses;
and that it would be endangering the
health of the town by opening a drain
in tho months of July or August. I sup
pose, however, that the work was has
tened on account of the Council term
expiring so soon.
Whether Miss Staley made an appli
cation to Council or not to have th#?
drain executed, 8he certainly came to
me, a day or so after my return, in com
pany with her sister, and begged me to
try and have the work stopped. She
also left with roc n petition to present to
Council, protesting against the detriment
said work was doing to her property.
As has been seen, the Bull Swamp
Bridge was not built by the authority of
Council, but by the authority of Mr. B.,
for what reason the public may judge
for themselves. I certainly have my
opinion of the matter.
This, I feel, is explanation enongh of
my position in the matter referred to.
Whatever motive Mr. Briggrannn, Srv
may ascribe prompting my actions, dur
ing my official tern), I can conscien
tiously say it has always been my effort
to discharge my duty faithfully; looking
always to the best interests of my fel
