views or opinions of our Correspondents.
ft 13 generally admitted that the fall
?lections will be hotly contested by the
the party in power. To them it is not
the question of political interest, it is
purely individual and collective gaiu
to all who wear the badge of radical
office. The dupes who raise them up
are not a whit better off, on the con
trary they are indirectly heavy losers,
being obliged to bear their portion of
the cost of such rule. All hinds of
argument, specious and rigmarole will
be used to induce them just once more
to reinstate the party; Any erroneous
impression will be thrown upon the
Taxpayer's movement to invest it with
treasonable intent. In reply to this,
we inform any and all who claim a!
right to know how the taxes are dis
bursed, to enquire about the taxpayer's
organization, and sec if it is not hon
estly and purely nonpoliticul, and for
the salvation of the State. The taxpay
ers claim only what every one knows,
that tho radical leaders now in power,
and those seeking office, are short of
the requisites to govern, namely hon
esty and capacity. They are capable
of but one thing, that is taking care of
themselves. Who disputes this? Not
their own press ; read the strictures on
the rottennees of the government from
every journal of the party. Not the
northern press which has in quest of
truth, sent here to sec, and writes eter
nal disgrace in unmeasured denuncia
tion. Not the colored people; at every
corner they gather in knots and bandy
names of defaulters as freely as any
other flagrant occurrence. No proof
is wanted to convict a horde of officers
who have violated law at every point,
and yet law is impotent to arrest the

Carpenter aud Mnekcy are all free to
use the judicial chair to launch just
denunciations where they apply, yet
all is in vain. What then is our duty?
plainly to watch the enemy, and at
every point to block his gamo. If this
is worth the effort, you may always
find the Times open to communica
tions. It is your business, and ours ;

Trustees made statements which are
not in accordance with the facts. The
gentleman in his speech conveyed the
idea to the public, that all the salaries
due to teachers for the current year
1874, had been pnid, which is not the
ease. Those who received part pay
had to sell their claims at a grea* sac
rifice, and the balance of claims they
The fact is, not half of the money
appropriated for school purposes has
been paid. There is no doubt, however,
as the gentleman stated, but that the
money was applied to back ce-tificates,
(of which he was a large holder,) and
nothing left to pay teachers, conse
quently ihey (the teachers) will have
to hold their certificates until next
year, or sell them as I cfore at less
than half their face value.
It has been stated, by a responsible
party, that iu order to collect claims,
(which have been purchased at half
and less thaa half their real worth,)
twety cents has to be allowed certain
parties to get them cashed. Hence, it
follows, that no one can get their
money direct from the office.
One who was buying claims as agent
for another (for he had no money of
his own,) boasted that he made $1.000
by the operation. Now if he made
that amount, doubtless his principal

Some of these claims, uo doubt, are
purchased with money from the Treas

a feeling of rovereuee,- and tin earnest
desire to promote a deep and sincere
interest in the Times throughout our

honest and energetic man of the county
of Oraugeburg to support in every way
possible the enlightening lines of this
worthy sheet, and strive to advance its
cause under all circumstances.
This paper I would presume to say
Mr. Editor is, through its honest forms
and priciples, a democratic paper. Its
columns are not always bowed beneath
the delusive and shocking influence-!
of politics, nor has it any marks what
ever of contumacy. But guided by a
true and honest principle, it endeavors
to promote unity and prosperity among
its many readers.
I delight Mr. Editor to see the young
men of our county take into their hands
and under their charge, such occupa

and more experienced men for fear of

Mr. Editor.?Will you be so kind
as to give place in your columns, to a
short detail of one of the most pleas
ant little social parties, that has ever
assembled on the banks of old Caw

from the hands of thoFIorida refugees
by his Sister, "Hurricane Nell."
A very kind invitation from my
young friend "Charlie," took me to
Farnum's Mill. July 7th, and to my
surprise found "Charlie" at his post
below the mil), playing havoc with the
little ring eye Perch, with the indefat
igable fisherman, Mr. Wm. P and Maj.
J. W. D, who had already taken out
twenty perch a piece, and much lar
ger species than those caught by our
young friend. I understood on my
arrival, that some of the party had
"taken on" a little too much cherry,
before breakfast, and not having my
morning "cap" as yet, I was able to
judge, found all heads pretty level,
though a little more talking than
usual (saying what was five bottles of
whiskey aud six chickens for three
men's breakfast.) I at once took my
pole and seat in the boat with frieuds

succeeded in catching a fino string of

Mr. Editor.?The annual exami.
nation and exhibition at Haiglor's
Academy, under the supervision of Mr
Hugo Q. Sheridan, took place June the
30th and July 1st inst. The first day
was devoted entirely to examining the
pupils. Mr. Sheridan conducted the
examination and although the children
were rigidly and extensively examined,
yet they acquitted themselves with
much credit,showing they had a roaster
to instruct them. Mr. Sheridan's stylo
of teaching iscifferent from any I.have
ever seen.. It is objective and illus
trative. The child is obliged tolearn
under his System of instruction.'- - The
citizens'of St. Mathcws nro fortunate
in having such a school located irr their

The second day was devoted to dec
lamation. The morning was ushered
in pleasantly and beautifully, and at
an early hour the people began to
gather from every quarter. By ten
o'clock come three or four hundred
ladies and gentlemen had collected to
witness the exercises. Just as the ex
hibition was about to begin, tho assem
blage was thrown into confusion, by
the falling of n part of the temporary
brush shed, erected for Urn occasion.
Only one accident occurred, an old
lady, Mrs. Snider, received a severe
bruise upon her head from a falling
timber. Order was soon restored and
the performances of the day begau by
Masters T McCants aud H Jenkins,
acting tho'English man and Innkeeper'
"I am the gentleman" came next Mas
ters G Hol man, ? Williams, R Smith,
T Collier and W Whetstone, were the
actors. "A good thrashing" was acted
by Masters Hugo Sheridan, A Sum
mers and ? Zimmerman. The exhi
bition was now varied by speeches
from Masters O Dantzler, G Summers
O Collier and E Zimmerman. The
next was a court scene,"The intelligent
witness" by Master T Collier lawyer
and Master R Smith witness. This was
well rendered and produced a burst of
laughter, A shower of r.\in, at this
stage of the proceedings, caused the
exercises to be temporarily suspended.
The rain over. The "Street boy" by
Master G Collier was ushered in which
produced quite a sensation upon the
assembly on account of his ludicrous
dress. He performed his part well.
The other actors in this farcical piece
were Misses Maggie Parlor, Fanny
Felkel, Ephmuie Tompaon, Mollio
Smith and Matters T McCants, A
6uiuraers,J Felder and Huge Sheridan.
"The Artist" by Masters W Whetstone
Misssea Mary Jenkins and Simraie
Bair. Speeches, by J WheUtone, J
Felder. T Jourdian and A Summers
were next in order. The laughable
dialogue, "The Census taker" was
acted by Masters J Gilroore, T Haig
ler, Misses Mary Collier aud Bimtnie
Bair. Miss Bair deserves special no
tice for excellent performance. "The
Master piece" was acted by Masters
? Williams, T Felder, C Holroan and
Miss Mary Jenkins. We note with
ploaturothcirjimitoblo performance of
flatter Tommy T^eTtfcr as the'jngger.'
Speeches- came next irr order, Masters
H- JcuUins, T RflcCants, R Smith and
Jas. Gilmore. "The Ghost" by Mas
ters.- T Felder, W Whetstone and
Micees Collier and Thompson was a
good: thing. "A Plantation ..Scene**'
wis splendid. It was performed by
Maater? W Whetstone,. T Felder, T
McCants and' ? Williams. It pro
duced- outbursts of laughter and ap
plause. The exercises of tlicday Were
now brought, to a close by speeches
from the following young? gentlemen,
Masters Hugo Sheridan, Tommy Col
lier, Eugene Williams, Willie Whet
stone, Tommy Haigler, Tommy Felder
and an original speech by Masten
Clarance Holman. This speech shows
much thought and was well delivered.
It deserves more than a passing notice
on account of the unique ground taken
Uy the speaker. He denies the unity
of the human race and advocates the
n*w geological idea of distinct centres
of creation,, vizr The Caucasian,
African, Mongolian, Malay and In
dien. Caucasian the- highest in point
cf intellect and elvi 1 izntro-.r. The negro
the lowest in grndr. These views are
antagonistic to- the present teachings
ef Theology. The entire performance
did credit to both pupil and teacher.
Jt is'jmrtir however, to say that Master
Tommy Haigler deserves credit and
praise for ease and grace ir* speaking.
The exercises having closed the audi
ence was invited- to partake of a sump
tuous dinner, prepared for the occasion
by the ladies. These mothers nnd
daughters of St. Mathews know now to
cater to the appetite. It was a dinner
worthy of the occasion and the people..
The repast ended, the multitude turned
homeward well pleased with the pleas
ures and enjoyment of the day.
