IB ORANGEB?RG TIMES
ORANGEBURG, S. C, JUNE 18,1874.
LARGEST.CIRCULATION IN THE COUNTY.
BgU W* art in no troy responsible for the views
9t epinions of our Correspondents.
Our friends wishing to have advertisements
inserted in the TIMES, must hand them in by
ftoeoday morning, 10 o'clock.
Henceforth.. nil legal Advertisements
?if County Interest, whether NoticcH or others,
?trill be published for the benefit of our leaders
?whethor they are paid for or not.
Chamberlain is said to be the leading
candidate for Governor: A Northern ex
change thinks Mores is bad enough, but
cayo Chamberlain will be worse.
Neaole has had a general free fight
in Columbia with wife, friends and garri
son of post. Like d ture man be beat
his wife, and like a ture friend spared his
friends, until an officer of the garrison
threatened to chastise him for playing
With a nui?kct. Ncagle is only a speci
men ruler. Did he not once threaten to
shoot the young Governor ?
The "Day Book" is not dainty in its
oaracticuro of the Republican party;
yet its unsightly frontispiece of the 13th,
instant may not bo over drawn. The
carcase of a dead horse represents the
party, a wagon packed with "plunder,
custom house frauds,back pay,Presidential
presents, bribes, credit mobilier &c,"
and summed up as "garbage" is in charge
of General Grant, with his bull pup; and
Beast Butler is afoot worn out with lush
ing the old beast, and disconsolate at
failure. A score of favorites arc on the
?camper frem the defunct and rotten
miss. It is a sad sight that both State
and federal affiairs arc in such hands, as
cause the atmosphere of reflection to be
foul with shame.
ORGANIZE THE TAXPAYERS UMON.
We have been asked; what this Union
will effect? If carried out as proposed it
will effect a systematic and powerful
moral combination against the fraud and
rnsCTility existing tn-puOTvtfJHaCes. IT. Will"
be able pecuniarily, and on account of its
extended ramifications to bring defaulters
to trial, employ the best of counsel to aid
the prosecution, and adduce proof of the'
guilt of the accused. It will be setting
up sentinels on every hill top over the
Hessians, and will effect in every way \
what in our present unorganized condi
tion is impossible. The minipulafors of
our degradation and ruin arc all organ
ized, shall we remain inactive.
WHO WOULDN'TLO\'E IHM.
The "New York Times" Grants organ,
says of our "Young ' Governor:" 1 The
evidenco is overwhelming that he is about
*?S fit to be Governor of a State, as any
Pukoi.a k who prowls about the street of
fff^S. York at midnight." It is wrong for
j.tlae j"Times" to write this as Moses is said
tof jje a candidate for re-election. "He
htljp helped himself to public funds and
hfe turned over the key of tho treasury
, A anybody clso (who scared him) who
? ?ippcned to be short of money.". For*
Siinnie "Times" remember he is our Gov-1
crnor; His private character is so simply
detestable that we had to strike out pas
sages (refering to it) offensive to decency."
Olfr saintly Governor; These extracts arc
from n paper whose reporter in Columbia
saw things as they were, and us they
long have been.
The Executive Committee of the "Tax
payers' Convention" calls a meeting in
Charleston, for tho special purpose of
organizing taxpayers uuions. The sooner
an important meeting.
The members of the Executive Com
mittee of Taxpayers'Convention of South
Carolina are hereby requested tc meet at
the Rooms of the Chamber of Commerce,
in Charleston, on Thursday,the 18th day
of June instant, at 12 o'clock meridian*
The main subject of consideration will
be prompt and efficient organization of
Tax'Uuions throughout tUisJatato.
Those ineTnfce/sSflvo caifhot attend are
invited to fleiiti opinions*and proxies td

cOwi*?iitte^. v> Jamp.s ( 'iiksnit,
V. Chairman KxocutivoCoininitleo.
Our follow townsman Mr. G. A. Neuffer!
who is posted gives us the following:
Immigration to tho United States from
foreign countries, from 1776 to 1873, a
period of ninety-seven years, is 9,443,865.
Fully three-fourths of this numocr came
from tho United Kingdom of Euglaud,
British America and Germany. Tho
largest Immigration was in the last three
years averaging 400,000 per annum. The
average from 1820 to 1830, was only
15,000 per annum, from 1850 to 1870,
200,000 per annum. Taken from opecial
report on Immigration page 11, by Ed
ward Youug, G. W. D., Chief of tho
Bureau of Statistics, Washington D. C.
The total of Immigration has been
9,043,865, in ninety-seven years.
Mb. Editor:?In your issue of the
11th ultimo you state that the petition of
the citizens of the town, asking Council
to remove iiie hogs from the streets, was
laid on the table. Such was not the case
for the petition ?ras laid over for action
at the next regular meeting of council, at
which meeting Council will endeavor
to provide for the removal of tho so-call
The citizens probably are not aware
that there are some difficulties in remov
ing the hogs from the corporate limits
We are happy to be informed that the
petition has been before Council, and for
the first time wo entertain a hope that
the hogs will be kept at home. Our
remarks in the last paper, had no refer
euce to the action of Couucil, as we were
under the impression, that the petition
(as we saw it in the Post Office with a
limited number of names, some times out
of sight, und now and then on the floor,)
had been removed entirely as a lost
question and that Council had not seen it.
And we applied the remark "laid on the
table" intending to convey the idea of
the indifference of tho public. Our
town Council has the support of tliG
"Times" so far in all they have done
and wc nro waiting to hear tho virdict.
Justice has our tbauks for his correction.

From the New York DoVllook.
If Massachusetts, or Nc4- York, or
Congress, or any power undunhenven, Can
enter the State of Virginia und chango
tho local status of one man, woinun,child
or negro there, whatevor Wtemuy call
Virginia, a province, satrapy^ or depart
ment, it is a lio and imposition on com
mon sense to call it u State,i<br a State,
to exist at all, must have absyluto charge
of tho relations and status of the popula
tion within its borders. Moreover, if this
thing is done, if any outside" power has
entered Virginia and changccPthe legal
relations of its people from supremacy to
equality with negroes, it baj^ an equal
right and equal powor not only to enact
the so-called Civil Rights bill, but to ab
solutely reverse the condition of 1776
1805, and forco the people int^ftlio status
of tho negro during that long and glori
ous period. These propositions are abso
lutely and unavoidably true; .therefore,
if the so-called amendments uro assented
to, the Fedoral Union, tho^merican
system, the United States, that grand
fabric of freedom won by thenlood and
heroism of the men of 1776, igjCvjvreck, a
shapeless ruin, and the man casing him
self a Demoornt who "accepts the situa
tion', is a traitor to Americanl^bcrty or
he is a fool unfit for tho duties of citizen
ship. Meanwhile, it a fact, a f|rribio if
not fatal fact, that an outside power, by
military violence, has forced the negro
element out of its normal condition, and
it is now running loose in Virgjna, &c.
How shall the American Democracy deal
with this fact? They must remove that
military force?all external ferce?and
leave the people of Virginia, to adjust
their legal and social rehitions*%ith the
negroes as God and nature ami the ne
cessities of human -society ordain, for to
interfere, to restore the normaf order,
would be as wrong in principle, though
as bcncficicnt in practice as the interfer
ence of Lincoln, Grant & Co. is ariti-sociul
and atrocious. And "to this coifrplexion
it must arrive at last," for a tih\c must
come when tho Northern producing
classes, unable to bear the taxation, to
continue this devil's dance after an im
aginary freedom for negroes, the "North
ern collnpsc will restore freedom to the
Southern people, and leave them to adjust
their rolations to the surbordinatc race as
best they may, and the necessities of
social order reign. Such, bricfljr, is the
"situation"?such the tremendous neces
