See notice of Mr. J. A. Williams,

"Williams has had an experience of j
twenty-five years in this line ofbusiness,
? aud. all jobs entrusted to him will be
executed in the neatest style. Call, or

Mr. C. D. Kortjolin has in a fresh
supply of groceries liquors &c, which
we believe it is useless to call attention
to; for Kortjohn is a man who natur
ally draws people to him by his genial
manners and fair dealing, and,'besides
this, the reputation of his store for
blending cheapness with superiority
of quality, is well known.
On Thursday night last, a most atro
cious murder occurred at Georges'
Station. It appears that while Mr.
S. T. Jackson and Mr. Stoudenmire'
were closing up their store to retire,
tin unknown and concealed fiend fired
upon the party, almost instantly kill
ing Mr. Jackson. He is represented
as a highly respected aud peaceable
ci fixen, und the cause of the crime is
still a mystery.
Th e meeting in Charleston in favor
of fair play in the coming election was
large and earnest, being attended by
both parties, and it is hoped that it
may be productive of good results.
We repeat what we said before, that if
the Radicals don't intend to cheat in
this election, they will cause a good
Conservative to be appointed as one
of the Commissioners of Election
at each poll. Policy alone, if not. hon
csty, would dictate such a course, if j
fraud is not the game.
Mr. T. B. Boyd has returned from
tho North with a stock of $10,000
worth of boots and shoes, besides a full
supply of groceries. It is probably
the largest and finest stock of the kind
ever offered in Orangeburg, and we
would advise every body, now that
winter is coming on, to go around to
Boyds and get something that will keep
the feet warm and comfortable. You
can get suited in this store just us well
as auy where in the State, aud, if from
wearing broken shoes you get colds,
you have yourselves and not Mr Boyd
to blame. See his advertisement.
We were refreshed this week by a
visit from Rev. J. G. Williams,author
of "The Invasion of tho Moon," who
was here for several days assisting in
a protracted meeting iu the Baptist
church, and we dont know when wo
have experienced so pleasant an "inva
sion" upon our usually monotonous
We were also honored with a call
from * Mr. T. A. M. Cook, tho affable
County Auditor of Marlboro', who was
on his return from the Springs, whither
he hod gone for the mingled purpose
of seeking health aud pleasure. We
were glad to note his success iu the
attainment of both of his objects.
Much has been Eaid during the

The Orangoburg precinct Republi
can meeting,' for the purpose of electing
delegates to the County Convention,
took place hero on Tuesday, but did
not prove very harmonious in its oper
ations. McKinlay was made temborartfj

if not half of those present, dissented, I

The People's; Meeting.
The people's meeting on Monday in
opposition to the Ring was large land
enthusiastic, and a greater number of J
colored people attended and took' an
interest than was expected for I this I
politically enslaved Radical County. I
Col. A. D. Goodwin called the meet
ing to order, and upon motion> Dr.
T. A. Elliott was called to the chair,
and Mr. Edward Felder requested to
act as -Secretary.
The first and chief business was the
election of delegates to the Convention
in Columbia, which after considerable
pleasant skirmishing, in which nobody
was hurt, resulted in the selection 0f|

After the adoption of the following
resolutions, proposed by Mr: Samuel
Dibble, the meeting adjourned:
Resolved, That a Provisional Ex
ecutive Committee of five members be
appointed by the chair, whose duty it I
shall be to adopt such measures as will
place before the people of this county,
a County Ticket, which will truly rep
resent the honest voters of the County,
and which will commend itself to the
support of our good citizens, irrespec
tive of parties.
Resolved, That said Committee
shall be authorized, if it thinks proper,
so to do, to enter into correspondence
with any other political association in
the County, und to act with such other
associations, as they may deem advis
able, in order to secure the object set
forth in the first of these resolutions.
S. Dibble, F. W. Fairy, Dr. B.H.
Knotts, W. C. Wolfe and D. K. Mor
