During 1ho discussion of the "Supply
Bill," a motion was made to make the
appropriation for the Penitentiary ?45,
000 instead of 05,000. Mackey warmly
supported the motion and said "public
institutions must be run upon the amount
the State was able to give, not upon what
they want." Min ort (an imported color
ed legislator)-opposed the motion, and
went in for a full appropriation, or open
ing the prison door3. He'drew a smile
upon the faces of the grave assembly, by
saying "if that gentleman (Mackey) had
had his just deserts he would have been
in the Pepitcntiary hist year." Hurley
arose to intersperse a little of the'funny'
with the debate, when Humbert said:
"you shut your mouth." Hurley laughed.
Humbert'enquired "how many prisoners
were there." Grbdn of Beaufort, replied
"that, be might be'con fin od Ibt re." [turn

The American people ore proverbially

the benefit of readers. Its .- elections are*
fresh and ? piquant, giving in synopsis,
what often requires the labored argument

guilt is in their own free admissions in
debate; they clamor openly fur plunder,
as a flock of vultures scream above the

taxpayers convention is an honest aud
earnest one. It is a work intended to save
a State from ruin, to save a people from

DEATH OF R. S. RR UNS.
Tbc subject of this notice was li man of
note; whose influence extended beyond
the city of his birth and residence. De
veloping early in life singular trails of
business excellence, he occupied various
posts of honor und trust. The war found
him actively engaged in the field under
General Evans, after being wounded be
was assigned to the Confederate treasury
department. At the end of hostilities be
resumed business in Charleston, and at
the time of his death was connected with
the brokerage of Lcitcb eVBurns. As a
Mason he was among its brilliant lights,
attaining from degree to degree in sym
bolic masonry that loft him few peers
upon the platform he had reached. His
illhoas was protracted, but heroically en
durcd,a~td his end in the pangs of ncutcst
suflcringjWns the triumph of the Christian.
Few men can be so illy spared as he, and
an army ol friends sorrow for their loss.
M. R. Dolnny addressed an excellent
letter to Asst' Justice, J. J. "Wright, in
which be states, that tho Grange and
Immigration movement in five years will
put the black clement in the minority,
and that this has been forced on the
white people. He recommends an amend
ment to the constitution providing for
"cumulative voting." In conclusion be
(a colored man) says, "rest assured that
there are no white people north or south,
who will submit to see the blacks rule
over the whites in America * ?* *
'Radicalism, be says has taught the masses
to believe otherwise, and act accordingly,
but it is a dreadful, terrible political

willing to have us participate; to concede
us our legitimate and reasonable, share

OnANCiEBURG, S. C. Feb. 14,1874.
The Board of Directors nine months
ago, took charge of the affairs of this
Company, having the Fair grounds pur
chased, aud to bo paid for, und buildings
to be erected. After me eh deliberation,
a site was chosen for the main building,
and a plan, prepared by Mr. Lucas, was
adopted, which, by closo estimate, was
within our means, and at the same timo
was that of a building large enough to
meet our present requirements for space.
The experience of our first fair showed
that it was just barely equal to our re
quirements for exhibition, as it was com
pletely filled. Owing to the difficulties
in the carrying r ut of contracts, by the
default of contractors in material * and
work, the erection wtis'somewhat retarded,
nnd in the scarcity of workman, the cost
was somewhat enhanced, in tirdbr lb be
ready for tte fair of 1873; but by urgent
efforts, we were able to bohl that fair at
the appointed tini6.
The"Corner . tone of tlx Fair Building
was laid with appropriate Masonic cor.c
monic.'i under the direction of Disti Dopy;
Grand Mas' ir ?L j<\ Izlar^ and Shibbo
letb Lodgb 2>o. 28 of'tbat ancient order,
which was an occasion of.much interest,
and there was n large attendance from
all parts of the Count).
In the midst of the work, the contrac
tor retired, and the Board w;v-> under the
necessity on the emergency of making the
best bargain possible, t > complete the
building in lime, and in proper style.
This was (fieeted at an increase of about
S30Q, on the original estimate,'which was
unavoidable under thij circumstances.
For this cause, audiVoin other cjrcuin
standes/especially the desire of the direc
tors to put the entire grounds under a
proper fence, and to lay out.prnpcr roads
and courses for the trial of Mock, it was
deemed proper to call the Stockholders
together for the purpose of voting en an
increase of stock. This was dotu-, and
tho stock increased to 300 Shares. The
directors have addressed the various
grange s and agricultural Soi ieties in the
County, soliciting subscriptions of stock;
but in only a few instances has there been
any response from them. Owing to the
financial panic, it has been difficult..to
j obtain subscribers for the stock, and some
of the original Shareholders have failed
to pay in f?ll their subscriptions. The
result is thai the directors have been
unable to carry out several desired im
provements, which, would add to the
value of the properly, and enhance its
capacity for pi >fil to tbo Association.,
The Association has also been compelled
to remain in debt to the amount of $109(1
while there is now owing to it from its
shareholders the sum of $500.
If the additional stock were all taken
up, and the same, paid, theic would be no
difficulty in earning out the projected
improvements. The last Fair, in such
bard times, realized a profit of over $200
above expenses, and parts of the building
aro now rented at $1<S5, for the present
year, and there is a cbauccfor other ren
tal. In an ordinary season, a fair will
pay a profit of $500 to $700, and rentals,
say $200, will make a good dividend on
?7500, and besides, the property is grow
ing in value every year.
in order to meet the liabilities of the
association, and to raise means for further
improving the grounds, tho directors
have laid out a Street aero-; the eastern
part of the h air Ground: and divided
iho portio ? across sum! Street into build
ing lotsj which they think will sell for n
sufficient sum to realize this object. The
portion cut'off is not at all essential to
the i rounds, and is eligible for building
j air poses'. Tho' streoi has been offered lb
the Town Council conditionally, and a
plat of the hits as laid i it' has been pre
Tbo number ol shares of .-lock taken
and paid in full, is 182.
The number of shares taken nnd only
partially paid is 18.
Total shares subscribed, 214.
The Trcaf urer's report is also submitted
in regard to tho financial condition of tho
Association. W. F.B AltTt >N.
Tim light of homo is shut out, the joy of
