Exchanges have noted the enormous
increase of taxation laid on Orangcburg
t County, and while they howl over their
own burdens, with a generous sympathy
for sufferers like themselves, they echo the
shameful levy. Thesuffering consequent
upon this will be felt in many cases.of
those who will be forced to part with
their property to fill the bottomless maw
of radicalism. The taxpayers conven
tion will have a job when they undertake
to checkmate the State Government, but
we believe the game can be blocked.
Louisiana is seeing the dawn of day, after
a curse of african night, and South Car
olina may be freed of carpetbag rule,
which is worse than ignorance. It is in
from the qermax zeitvnq.
How appreciated the germans are in
the up counties, is proved by a circum
stance which occurred in Abbeville. The
citizens of this torvu collected a handsome
sum among themselves, engaged a band
of music, and the largest hall, ordered
several kegs of Lager from Charleston,
then inviting all the German farm labor
ers arouud for twenty miles, with their
wives and children to n ball, and it turned
out a real merry ball. Everyone was
delighted,and the affair was a success.
The native gentlemen and German ladies
enjoyed the waltz and polka together,
while the Germans were equally dolghtcd
with thcqundrille &c,und this free inter
course of good feeling happened in a town
where Germans were hardly known here
tofore. Abbeville county orders now
1000 German farm Inborers. This
county knows now what Germans can
do; a circumstance of last year opened
the eyes of its people; One family of a
German, his wife and a boy of eighteen
years, strayed to Abbeville, where* their
travel money ran out. They begged for
work, but nobody offered cither work or
wages, finally a farmer engaged them, and
said he would risk the matter, to rent
them a peico of land, also horse wagon
and plow, and during the year to furnish
the provisions; If they should make
nothing, all right. The German began
work, as only a German does, with a will
and a heart, the result'of his labors, was
eight bales of cotton Wurth ?500, he gave
the fanner two bales as rent, for the
land and the horse, two bales for advan
ced provisions, which left the renter
four bales, for which he at once bought a
horse and wagon. The fanner immediately
sold him 100 acres of land on ten years
credit, and now the German laborer is his
own matter, and probably Ibis year will
make his eight bales of cotton, ns well as
his corn pens, &c, and then we inny say
his earnings, will be his clear profit. How
long will it take before this German will
be an independent man; come one nnd
all nnd do the same.

The taxpayers convention will ussom
ble at Columbia very shortly. It will bo
composed of nten whoso experience in
public lifo entitles their opinion to weight.
Tho wise nnd tho fearless, tho honorable
nnd patriotic, are to meet to pass seu
tnnce upon the pluderers who, have the
effrontery to call themselves rulers, and
have not the shame to be above the corn
man theif. Secure for the time being
behind a pnrlizan judiciary, and banded
together, each knowing the other to be
deserving of the felon's garb, yet none
daring to turn State's evidence, they have
gone on from one degree of enormity to
another until the modem nomenclature of
scoundrel as is applied to them is as ac
ceptable as the title of "Masters" was
farcical to "Flute Snout, Quiuco & Co"
when nt the call of "Bottom"jthcy "spread
themselves" as actors. The convention
need not confer with tho crew at Colum
bia with the hope of exacting promises
of reform. Such au effort would be as
utterly lost in effecting good, as the party
is lost to any sense of right. Years long
years in which millions have been wrung
from the people, in which many a home
has been forfeited to tho State, in which
thousands hove been driven away from
our borders, in which we have been the
servants of ignorant and beastly hirelings,
havo passed by, and the abuse has grown
to a curse, until the very name of "the
party" which rules, is as hateful as evil
can be. No; any conference with them
must be decisive upon one of two points,
either to relinquish the grip upon the
people's life,or take a people's finale. The
cry comes from every portion of the
country "will the people of South Caro
lina consent to bo thus fettered nnd rob
bed, and make no resistance." It is a
reproach to us all, yet wc counsel no vio
lence. There is an appeal that can not
fail at Washington if filly mnde,nud push
ed to hearing. Let that appeal bo mude;
and let tho complex machinery of wheels
within wheels,rings of Governor.Seualora
legislators, courts, and understappers go
to smash, and let us h we once more a
ruler somewhere to be found,.who what
ever b? his political coat, shall be entitled
to the name of an honest man. At this
juncture the lantern of Diogenes would
hardly light us to such on one in high
A meeting of the share holders of the
Roberts Subsoil Attachment was held on
the 20th inst.
The meeting was called to order by J.
A. Keller who was afterwards elected
President of the Company. The ballot

in the election of F. H. W. Briggmann.
On motion of Col P. S. Folder the name
of -'Roberts Subsoil Attachment Company
of Orangeburg" was adopted. The Prcsi

sum of five ($5) dollars.

An Old feud Revived
[From the Neica & Courier.'] fiy^fti
Tho political feud, which had its origin
twenty-fivo years ago between Jefferson
Davis and Henry ?. Footo, both then of
Mississipi, and warm political opponents
and which lived through successive party
campaigns in the State and the country,
did not abate ono jot, except for a breif
and delulive tru e, when Mr. Davis be-'
came President of the Confederate States,
aud Mr. Foote a member oftheCoufedc
iate House of Representatives, and sur
vived the wreck and ruin of the war and
its defeats. It seems to-day to have in1
creased in inteusity and bitterness in spite
of.their gray heads and growing wisdom
and thousands of cxainplesof part, and
persounl reconciliation tha,t have oc
curred while they, perpetuated their
quarrel. Recent publications ?.f Mr.
Footo in Washington papers ' nffeeting
Mr. Davis have added, fresh' mate
rial to their mutual wrath, nnd now
it is reported that a duel is actually being
arranged by which to cud the feiid forever.
Tho following letters form the present
climax of the trouble, the fuse appearing
in the Washington Capitol, and being a
private letter written last fall:
i.kttku from Mil. dav18
Mkmpiiis, Tknn., November 25, 1873,
?Sir.-, Dear ?\r, Yours of the 20th
instant has beeil this day received. I
have not seen any of the articles which
you inform me It. 8. Foote had written
in abuse of me, nor have I had any desire1
to read whatever he might write.
In 1851 I published him as constitu
tionally a liar, atd his subsequent career
only served to confirm me in that judg
ment. Since that date, thcrc.'ore, I have
taken no heed of the utterances of said
Foote. His flattery, when he was seek
ing political preferment in tho Confede
racy, and his abuse when, faithless to his
trust as a representative in t\\? Congress
of the Confederate States, lie was prepar
ing for his subsequent desertion to their
enemy, were alike disregarded by me.
You arc at liberty to use this as yen
think proper. I remain, respectfully and
truly, yours, Jkfkkuson Davis.

The following card is published in the
Washington Chronicle by Mr. FoOte:
As a portion of the community may
possibly expect from me some notice of
the in mi ting and grossly nspersivo letter
over the signature of Jeffcrmn Davis,
which yesterday morning made its
pearancb in the columns of tho Capitol?
though the glaring nieudacity of all the
allegations of fact contained therein
might well justify me treating the letter
itself and its infamous author with cool
and passionless contempt, jet, for certain
reasons hot difficult I imagine, to ho di
vined, 1 have thought proper to take a
somewhat different course,
I shall not now gu into a detail of past i
occurrences with a view of my own vin
dication. It is not possible for the ruined
and disgraced champion of disunion to
sny aught of me, or of my public career,
which could in the least degree disturb
my equanimity. Ho has cherished nn
undying hatred for me ever since his own
presumptuous arrogance, on a very noted
occasion, compelled mo to slap his jaws
in this city in the winter of 1847-48. The
hostility thus ei gendered whs afterward
Much heightened bj my defeat of his(
treasonable aspirations to the office ofi
Governor of Mississippi as a secession'
candidate in 1851. My constant and uu
yielding opposition to him nnd his nefari
ous schemes in Richmond during the war
of tho rebellion for three years was not at
nil calculated to assuage his enmity. My
free, but unanswered, and \- veilUire to
say unanswerable, expositions hut sum
mer of his indecent und seditious attempts
to keep alive in the bosoms of his coun
trymen feelings of irritation ami' aliena
tion which ought never to have been
brought into existence, have doubtless
much inflamed the malignity which was
slumbering in the recesses of a heart
capable of all mischief I rejoice to know
that the blighting curse of Mr. Davis's
commendation it never can now be my
ill fortune to incur. Rut I bid this
mighty man of Gat b, who writes so blus
trously for publication in the newspapers,
that I do not live in absolute conceal
ment; my whereabouts may bo easily
found by him or his idolizing confeder
ates. He knows, as thousands of others
know, that for full twenty years J have
stood ready to accord to him buch satis
faction as he might deem nccccssnry to
his deeply-wounded honor; and that,
whatever general views I may entertain
touching tho propriety of settling such is
sues as have arisen between him and my
self in the mode rcforcd to, yet that, from
i special deference to him, I shall be alto
gether induced to make his an exception

of honest and patriotic men has no right
to skulk behind tho hypocritical pre
