Before ovcry election the Republicans
have been just as blatant about reform
as they are now, and yet the result
has always been from bad to worse.
Judging from tho past, we have little
to hope for in the future, and that fu
ture is still more darkened now by the
prospect of nothing bettor thau Cham
berlain for our next Governor. It is
boasted by his admirers that no offi
cial wrong can be fastened upon him ;
but however this may be, he is not clear
of that suspicion which his past asso
ciations have brought upon liim, and
which makes him a very inconsistent
candidate of the champions of reform.
If the Republicans really wanted re
form they would hardly select as their
Btandard bearer the boon companion
of Scott, N eagle and tho rest of the
State house Ring. Surely if they can
not find an honest Republican out sido
of this company, they must bc'in a bad

It advises that "both classes of our
citizens bo represented in the nomina
tions by tho best men of their own
selection." General Kerahaw in his
recent letter, also recommends about
the same course. After referring to the
change in public sentiment at the
North he says :
After nil,' however, our relief depends
mostly upon our own people. Let them or
ganize andcoiiHolidate all honest men who
can mo above unworthy prejudices and party
idavcry, to rescue the Stato from anarchy,
ruin, and, in the end, a bloody despair.
Thcro are others, on tho contrary,
who strongly advocate a "do nothing
policy;" who seem to think that in
some mysterious way things will change
for tho better, in time, without our
agency. To such we would say that
we do not object as much to the inac
tivity as to the want of organization;
which invariably leads to disintegra

refusal to co-operate with us, should, in
the slightest di-grec, cause us to recede
from the principles which we laid
down in tho reform campaign. Such
a course would give just ground for
suspicion ns to our sincerity. If we
felt that our position was just and right

Bisinark has to do with tho Beecher

has utterly fitiled to'graut ua this rea

.should meet in convention in Colum

convention arljourjis, not necessarily
to make new nominations; if develop
ments prove this to be inadvisable, but
for organized action against tho most
unscrupulous ring that over luxuriated
upon a poor and oppressed people.
By all means let us keep together.

Mr. Editor:?As it is presumed
that your paper reflects the sentiments
of the Conservative citizens of this
county, it is hoped, that during these
trying times before us, you will do all
in your power to combat with our ene
mies in this great struggle, and open
your columns to such communications
as our good citizens may contribute
This seems to be your duty. We now
have every evidence that the Times
will be an interesting and useful paper
and nothing will contribute to it better
than such a course If wo want suc

A Trip to Cherokee Spring.
Cherokee SraiKO, Aug. 25,1874.
My family and eelf left our home to
visit this delightful summer resort a
week ago. We wero worn out when
we got to the village of Spartanburg,*
for it was a tedious days journey. Hav
ing to remain at Alston from 9 o'clock
until 1 o'clock, there wns nothing to
while away the hours, but look at Mr.
Elkins fino crop of "ku klux" corn, the
finest I ever saw. This curiosity in
farming, each farmer had to go to the
field and sec for himself.
When at Spartanburg wo had eight
long miles to travel in the night "with
out a moon's light. Dreadful we
thought the road, although our driver
informed us that it had been worked
and was in fino condition. Our hack
was very full. Two of tho largost
ladies of the lower country, with chil
dren in their laps, occupied the back
seat, a good size man with child in lap,
a grown .servant girl and child of six
occupied the next, or middle scat; the
driver and a boy of twelve yearju^ji.i'
a stout tyqJuii^drp^ .1 I
mau had the front seat. Thankful to
the ' Werul driver and safe foiled
mules, at 10 o'clock we found oarf elves
in front of tho Cherokee Spring Hotel
half alive and half awake (the young
ones having been lost in slumber hours
ago). Our land lord met us with a
hearty welcome and soon invited us in
to a sumptuous supper?I enjoyed it
and retired for the night. I took sev
eral days to get.over the tiresome
journey, but the delicious water, brac
ing atmosphere, and generous and
nicely gotten up fare has completely
revived mo. Fruit is here in an
abundance, and the finest kind of mel
ons of the sweetest varieties. Captain
John Bowman of your county, with
lady and son are over here in fine
A calico ball came off here last
Tuesday night. The young ladies
looked line they were dressed in hand
some silks. The hall and parlor were
diesscd in wreathes which looked bo
cheerful. Ice cream and cake wero
plentiful on the occasion. Spartan
burg sent some of her handsome gents
to danco with the fair daughters who
came from diflereut parts of our State,
who I think came hero for pleasure, for
j they look too fresh and sweot to say
they have bad health. This is truly
a healthful and delightful resort. I
recommend it to you my low country
friends who have chills and fovor all
summer and almost shake to pieces in
September. Here U the place to cure
all diseases. Board is cheap and pleas
ure plentiful. Come and see for your
