THE TAX UNION.
Whatever ruuy be the speculations
of persons relative to the Tax Unions,
and their excuses for not lending a
helping hand, will not justify the shame
and culpability thnt will rest on each
and nil, who refuse to aid a cause look
ing direct and only to the check of
misrule and peculation. All favored
the taxpayer's convention; nil watched
the able efforts of their committee that
went to Washington to plead for fed
. eral interference; and any who rev
iled the effort, were indulging in a
morbid wish to defeat the liberties of
their brethren and add a new chain to
... ,| their nlrendy enfettered limbs. Some
we admit havo lost the noble zeal that
animated them on the field of battle,
and have sunk into the lap of the be
trayer, and with blinded eyes arc the
captives of chncinry; but we believe
that the genius of right and truthful
liberty lives yet unsullied and un
tempted, and effort after effort will bo
made until right utterly falls, or is
again reinstated. The man who ac
cepts the situation as foregone i? a
laggard to duty, and tho friend of the
foes of peace and order. He gives tacit
support to villainy, and must be aa
guilty as they who riot to-day over our
misfortune. Let him who would be
warned, .and would bo a true citizen
join the Tax Unions; they are open
and free to every honest voter. Any
reports to the contrary aro as false as
they are malignant.
INTERESTING TO TAXPAYERS.
The plan of organization for united
effort to reduce the present enormous
taxation within proper limits, requires
first the formation of Tax Uuions in
esjjh township or other subdivision of
ev?ry County?secondly, that these
send Delegates to form at the Court
honst; of each county a County Union,
an'cl thirdly, that the various County
Unions send Delegates to form a State
Union to meet at Columbia the capital
of tho State. Euch Township Union
? is entitled to two Delegates to the
County Union (und one additional
delegate for every twenty members on
its roll, beyond twenty) and each
Ceunty Union to three Delegates to
the State Union. Subordinate Unions
having been already formed in the
various townships of the county, the
step to be taKon is to organize the
Orangeburg County Union. Realizing
tho importance of proceeding at once
.?.to. complete the organization contem
plated, tho Orange Township Union
has adopted the icsolutions which we
publish below, and to which we beg
leave to call special attention:
At a meeting of the Ornngo Town
ship Tax Unions held on tho 19th
day of July, 1874, tho following res
olutions were adopted:
Resolved, That the various Tax
Unions iu Orangcburg county be
jnvited to unite with this Union,
in forming a county Union for this
county by electing delegates to meet
for that purpose, at Orangcburg court
house on the first Monday in August
next, in the hall of tho Y. A. Fire
Engine Company at 12 o'clock AI.
Resolved, That a meeting of this
Tax-Union be held on the 30th day
of July, hist., to elect delegates from
Jho t?uruo to tin; proposed county
Union referred to in I ho foregoing
IIksqm'ed, That tbeio resolutions
he published in the Qrnngebtirg
Times and Orr.ngoburg Neys.
t. b. Boyp,
Secretary G. T. T. 15.
Mr. Editor:?Thinking that yon'
would like to hear the news from any
quarter of our noblo old county. I
tako this method of dropping you a
few lines, that you may be cognizant
of facts oa they have transpired in and
around the little way station * of |
Howe's Pump. In obedience to a call
from the citizens of New Hope Town
ship, we held a meeting on Saturday
the 18th instant to organize a Tax
Union, and u goodly number, consist
ing of whites and colored, turned out
on that occasion, seemingly anxious
to see and hear the purport of the
grand movement in favor of a good
and honest government. The meet
ing being called to order, on motion
Captain J. S. Bowman was called to
the chair and Mr. T. P. Stokes re
quested to act ns secretary, after which
the chairman stated, in a btief man
ner the object of the meeting, when
several gentlemen delivered addresses
on tho occasion, giving plain and
truthful statements of facts ns they
now exist under our present rulers.
Also, the colored people spoke in
favor of the reduction of the taxes,
and held up to ridicule the corruption
and dishonesty that now exist in the
county and Stato government. > So
you see, Mr. Editor, that we are mak
ing a progressive movement, at least
in this matter around Howe's Pump,
by securing twenty-five or thirty
names, whito and colored, to our list,
by way of a start in this noble cause,
with a bright prospect of as many
more at every meeting, and to this
end, Mr. Editor, we are determined
to work, and that manfully, for the
con sum at ion of a true and honest ad
ministration of county and State af
fairs, whether we are ruled by Re
publicans or Democrats, and I will
state, before I close this short epistle
that I do not remember of ever at
tending a mee ting, composed of whites
and colored, where there was more
harmony and unanimity of feeling
manifested than was on that occasion.
[com mun icated.]
Mr. Editoi::?A select party of|
gentlemen met one day and formed o
Tax-Union, (this it is presumed they
did to their entire satisfaction) with
out having due regard for the public
generally. In order to do justice to
.this, community- a-gencr-nl mnas moot- \
ing should have been called (by giv
ing timely notice) and nil voters,
white and colored, should have been
invited, in that case the people would
have had full opportunity to take
part in the proceedings, and express
their sentiments. This is really too
important a mutter lor a few citizens
take upon themselves to act for a
whole community. This seems to be
tho only place in this Stnto where
such arbitrary proceedings have taken
place, in all other places public meet
ings wore held, und the people attend
ed in luige numbers. Such proceed
ings aro not in accordance with the
wishes of our people. This assertion
the writer makes from reliable infor
mation. As far as is known up to
this time, there .seems to be no concert
of action. The time is for operations,
and the people must act and do their
duty, but these proceedings have very
much discouraged our people. There
is a great deal of work before us. Tho
continuance of the Orangeburg Times
should be secured, and it is the duty
of the Tax-Union to pay special at
tention to that matter. If we have
no newspaper organ we will be help
less, and nil effort* to bring about re
form wiil not avail much. Give us
public meetings and let us net, and
net p'.'t our light under a bushel.
This is the opinion of more than n

And dost the mighty lie bo low,

Taught the Blackville boys to know
Who wore the wreath of victory!
Alas 'tis true 1 the club in bluo
From Charleston eame ?nd put'eiu through,
And broke the hearts of not a few
Whose souls were bent on victory.
Still rallying to their chieftain's call,
These heroes of the hatnnd ball,
Again stood up, again to full,
When Angels shouted, victory !
A sympathetic crowd flood round,
For the Orange boy* upon the ground,
But iA that host, few, few wore found,
To wish the Angela victory.
But, heedless of the jeers that rung
From lips of aged and of young;
The Blue Caps fought, till umpire Ming
The score that told the victory.
'Tis sad to think our pitted nine
Is gone alas, where woodbines twine.
On other breasts that cross doth thine. ..
* Insignia, ot victory.
Now, pad fate, their hope is muffed!
Though their skill the papers puffed,
And by hove, they can be bluffed,
Who never gained a victory.
Too soon, too soon, do laurels fade
When gainrd by conquest easy made;
And fickle Fortune, wily jade,
Oft crowns our foci with victory.
To J and J a tear I drop,
To L and L and T short-stop.
The bottom rail is now on top!
