COUNTY ELECTION NEWS.
We give below the result of the voting
in Orangeburg County from eighteen
precincts. It will be seen that Green
has already surpassed Carpenters.vote
in 1870, which was 1693, although'1
there are five precincts yet to be heard
from, which will probably increase his
vote several hundred.
The following is the partial result:
D. H. Chamberlain ..3330
J.T. Green.. ..1738
So far for Congress Buttz is about
1000 ahead of Mackay
Knowlton (Peoples) .2455
In our next issue we will give the
full official returns, showing the vote
at each precinct for each candidate.
The above shows a terrible break into
the Regular Ticket.

S1ATE election news.
Dispatches from all parts of the State
show that Green is running better
than any Independent Candidate since
Charleston, Anderson, Spartanburg
Union, Sumter, Greenville and Lau
rens, so far as heard from, give majori
ties for Green. The prospect is flatter
ing. There will certainly be a tremen
dous Conservative and Independent
gain in tho Legislature, whoever is
It is thought that Mackay has beat
en Buttz, and Sam Lee beaten Rainy
It is almost given up that Kershaw
is elected in his District, and very
probable that McGowan is victorious
The dispatches from every State, in
which elections were held on Tuesday,
indicate immense Democratic gains.
Even Republican Massachusetts is said
to have gone Democratic. Thompson
(Dem.) has beaten B. F. Butler to
Congress. Republicans concede that
the Democrats are victorious.
The Democrats sweep Now York.
In Pensylvauia a telegram from Re
publican sources says: "It is feared
that tho State has gone Democratic."
We have no space in this issue at
this late hour to give all the cheering
A dispatch from Washington says:
"The Democrats here are very jubi

every where, throughout the country
will show immense Democratic gains,"

Whatever may bo the result of the
election, tho white people of Soath
Carolina enjoy the consciousness of
having done their full duty towards
the colored rneo. Both in 1870 and
1874 they buried prejudices, and hold
out tho olive branch of peace and rccon
In 1870, by tho ndvico of their lead

ing their lease of power, havo again

ed colored people the old Democratic
skeleton, and tho over faithful Radical

These arc the regular agencies, used
by tho unprincipled creatures who arc
living by office and official pup, to pre
vent tho two races from coming togoth
er on a common platform of honesty
and (Midi! government.
It is but natural that such repeated
rejections of tho conciliatory proposi
tions of tho white peoplo will loud to
drivo ihem to nn opposite course, and
adopt such other peaceful and legiti
mate measures as may bo necessary for
their own good.
Wc regret that the colored people
seem determined to bo lead by ofHco
seekers to oppose every thing upon
which the white people arc disposed
to unite in their oflbrU for harmony^
for it is evident, oven if Green is elect
ed, thnt tho masses of them have gouo
against the whites.
The prosperity of South Carolina
demands that the two races should
harmonize, and it is a source of grati
fication to us to be able to record tho
fact that tho white people have, in two
State elections, done their utmost to
bring about ro desirable a result.

that their efforts may be crowned with

Several families have left Charleston

The Anderson Intelligencer charac
terizes Judge Cooks speech at Ander
son on last Saturday as "made up of
reckless assertions and bombastic as
sumptions,-utterly discreditable to his
judicial position, and thoroughly par

Editor Orangeburg Timet:
It was our good fortune to have an
invitation to a Suuduy School Cclebrn
tion on Saturday, tho 24th instant.
We got there about 10 o'clock and
found a common school house in tho
pine forest, but every thing well nr
rnnged. The speakers stand was beau
fully decorated with wreaths of flowers
by tho ladies hands. Every thing was
in such perfect order, and the pro
gramme so XfcU gotten up and carried
out by the Secretary, Mr. J. R. Hcrh
rand, and the Superintendent, Mr.
D. O. Jeffcont, and all the teachers
and assistants, that too much praise
cannot bo given them. We were told
that tliis school was started there five
years ago by a lady, and has been go
ing ever since, both winter and slim
Tho exercises began at 11 o'clock
with singing and prayer by the Rev.
Mr. Siflcy. Aftor this the speaking
commenced by the boys and girls,
which was first rate. The order was

Louisa Davis; "Our obligation" by
Master Law ton Jeflcoat; "Our best

"Tho better land" by Miss E Williams;
"Vindication of South Carolina," by
Master Dan Davis, which was fine ;
"Teniperahco" by Miss A K. Jeflcoat;
and "Liberty and Knowledge" by
Master Asbury Pearson.
The smaller ones then spoke and all
did well. Tho Sccxetary then an noun

deliver an address in behalf of his
school, which ho did to the satisfaction
of all present.
Rev, J. L. Silloy then addressed tho
school and gavo much good advice.
Aftor this tho Committee arranged tho
tables, and Mr. Editor, if you could

you would havo said it was a real feast
of every thing good and nico that

wont off splondldly. Wo hope Mr.
Joffooat may live to carry on his good
work for many years to come. 1'.
Mr. Edito r :?In reply to 'Pr A. B.'
iu your issue of October l?tli, "I must
first and foremost" say, that his entire
communication abounds in misrepre
sentations, perversions of truth,(wheth
er purposely or through mistake I can
not say) and has the undoubted ap
pearance of having been written by a
second party. "A. B.,x must have
furnished the material and some oue
else reared the fabric which, to say the
least, has done him no good, either as.
regards his fairness in controversy or
Christian charity. Ono thing, to my
mind, and to others, is apparent: The
writer of tho lirct article cannot be the
author of the second, because the style
is very different, and " k. B." could
not possibly have made the mistakes
which are found in this latter commu
nication. "A. B." does not pretend to
be a Latin and Greek scholar, and yet
ha3 managed some way to get some
Latin into his recent production! If
"A. B." is the author of the document
bearing his name, he reminds mo 'most
awfully* of a certain divine who arose
once to follow a minister of considera
ble attainment in classical lore and
began by saying "I wish you to under
stand that I never rubbed my head
against a college wall"?and then
labored, with all his might, to make
his audienco believe him to be a pro
"A. B." pronounces all "allusions to
the Rev. Mr Hartley, and the Antioch
church as false in toto, ab initio, ad
finem,'' and brands it 'as a wilful false
hood." Ho speaks of me as having
lost my temper and usjng epithets of
an improper character, and as casting
dirt at my enemies. Pray tell me, in
whoso communication do you find the
most angry and tempestuous epithets?
He makes an admission which,thanks
to Goei, I cannot make, viz:?He says
I discharged"dirt at my enemies," thus
confessing that ho and hie Baptist
friends are really my enemies. Is this
a specimen of Baptist religion? I say
once for all, I am not 'A. B.'s/ enemy
nor nm I nn enemy to any of the bap
tist people. I feel just what I said,
in the conclusion of my sermon on
Baptism, which discourse has brought
down upon me tho anger of "A. B."
and his friends, and which, according
to his own statement, has made them
my enemies, "I Jove my baptist broth
ren, and give you my Christian greet
ings." Nothing of this nature present
ed itself in the reply to my sermon.
"Do you understand T'
If my statements, in regard io the
Rev. Mr. Hartley, urc untrue why
were tho facts not given ? The wife of
a baptist brother eaid that Mr Hartley
was sent for; certificates to this effect
can be produced, if necessary. If it
be false then the falsehood is not mine.
Call not your friend a liar when com
mon fact won't establish as truthful
your assertions. In the same connec
tion wc find these words: "That Barn
well Union communion ; that slip of
the tongue." Far better for "A. B."
and his church, had he never made
this remark, for I will now give the
facts of the case, and the proof:?On
the 20th of August 1871,1 preached a
sermon on the "Evils of the Tongue,"
at Trinity Lutheran church, after
which I gave an account of a very in
teresting meeting which I had attend
ed in Baruwcll county, S. and said,
that the different churches were living
and laboring harmoniously together,
and communing together as Christians
should. That day I dined at Captain
H's., as did also a revered gentleman
of the Baptist church, and, during tho
course of the evening, ho nsked me
some questions in reference to the ex
pression : "Communing toguiher," I
then told him that I had been informed
that the Rev. J. G. Williams of his
church was administering the Lord's
Supper to tho Lutherans nrd Metho
dists. Not long after this, it reached
my cars that the rcvertmd gentleman
was telling it around that, I had said
I was mistaken, to which false rumor
I replied in these terms: "If Rev
did say that, he said what is not cor
rect, for I gave him the names of my
informants." I could not be mistaken
in regard to this matter for sovcral
vory rcliablo gentlemen, and ono of
our own Ministers, told mo that such
was the fact; and I now have a certi
ficate Horn ono of thoso rcliablo men
and can get a dozen others if I want'
them. K ore it is:?"This is to certify
thnt myself and wife arc members of
tho Lutheran church in Barn well
county S. C, and did receivotho Lord's
Supper from tho Rev. Mr. Williams
of tho baptist church together with his
mombcrs. C. Ehrhardt."
Rev. Williams will not, and dare not,
deny administering the communion to
mem burs of Pcdobnptist churches.
