COUNTY ELECTION NEWS.
Wegivebelow tho result of the voting
in.Orangeburg County, from oighteen
precincts. It will be seen that Green
has already surpassed Carpenters.voto
in 1870, which was 1693, although"
there are five precincts yet to be heard
from, which will probably increase his
vote several hundred.
The following is tho partial result:
D. H. Chamberlain ..3330
J. T. Green...1738
So far for Congress Buttz is about
1000 ahead of Mackay

In our next issue we will give the
full official returns, showing the vote
at each precinct for each candidate.
The above Bhows a terrible break into
the Regular Ticket.

SI ATE ELECTION NEWS.
Dispatches from all parts of the State
show that Green is running better
than any Independent Candidato 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

It is thought that Mackay has beat

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. Butlor to
Congress. Republicans concede that
the Democrats are victorious.
The Democrats sweep New York.
In Pensylvauia a telegram from Re
publican sources says: "It is feared
that the 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 arc very jubi
lant, believing that the returns from
every where, throughout the country
will show immense Democratic gains."

Whatever may bo the result of the
election, tho white people of South
Carolina enjoy the consciousness of
having done their full duty towards
the colored race. Both in 1870 and
1874 they buried prejudices, and held
out the olive branch of peace and recon
In 1870, by the advice of their lead
crs, the colored people rejected theso
proffers cf union, and in 1874 these
same leaders, for the purpose of extend
ing their lease of power, have again
shaken before the ignorant and blind
ed colored people the old Democratic
skeleton, and the ever faithful Radical
office winner, the Black Code.
These aro the regular agencies, used
by tho unprincipled creatures who arc
living by oflico and official pup, to pre
vent the two races from coining tngeth
er on a common platform of honesty
and food ffoVorDffient.

It is but natural that such repeated
rejections of the conciliatory proposi
tions of the white people will tend to
drivo them to an opposito course, and
adopt such other peaceful and legiti
mate measures as may be necessary for
their own good.
Wo regret that tho colored people
seem determined to ho lend by ollico
seekers to oppose every thing upon
which the white people are disposed
to unite in their efforts for harmony^
for it is evident, oven if Green is elect
ed, that tho masses of them have gone
against the whites.
The prosperity of South Carolina
demands that ihe 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 f o desirable a result.
We hope, if wo can do no. more,
that their efforts may be orowned with

ICditor Orangeburg Times:
It was our good fortune to have an
invitation to a Sunday School Celebrn
tion on Saturday, tho 24th instant.
We got there about 10 o'clock and
found a common school house in the
pino forest, but every thing well ar
ranged. Tho speakers stand was beuu
fully decorated with wreaths of flowers
by tho ladies hands. Everything was
in such perfect order, and the pro
gramme so well gotten up and carried
out by the Secretary, Mr. J. R. Herb
rand, and the Superintendent, Mr.
D. O. Jeflcoat, aud all tho teachers
and assistants, that too much praise
cannot bo given them. We were told
that this school was started there five
years ago by a lady, aud has been go
ing ever since, both winter and sum
Tho exercises began at 11 o'clock
with singing and prayer by the Rev.
Mr. Siflcy. After this tho speaking
commenced by tho boys and girls,
which was first rate. Tho order was
"Introductory" by Master Conner
Jeflcoat; "Wo are growing old," by
Louisa Davis; "Our obligation" by
Master Law ton Jeflcoat; "Our best
wishes" by Miss Cornelia Williams ;
"True Eloquence," hy% George Dnvis;
"The better land" by Miss E Williams;
"Vindication of South Carolina," by
Master Dan Davis, which was fine ;
"TompcraUco" by Miss A K. Jeflcoat;
and "Liberty and Knowledge" by
Master Asbury Pearson.
The smaller ones then spoke and all
did well. The Sccietary then nnnouc
cd that Mastci Henry Phillips would
deliver an address in behalf of his
school, which he did to the satisfaction
of all present.
Rev, J. L. Silloy thon addressed thu
pchool and gave much go?d advice.
After this the Committee arranged the
tables, and Mr. Editor, if you could
havo seen into those baskets and hexes
you would havo said it was a real feast
of every thing good and nico that
could be thought of. Every thing
went off splendidly. We hopo Mr.
Jeflcoat may live to carry on his good
work for many years to come. P.
Mr. Edito r :?In reply to 'Dr A. B.'
in your issue of October l?tl?, "I must
first and foremost" say, that his entire
communication abounds in misrepre
sentations, perversions of truth,(\vheth
er purposely or through raistake I can
not say) and has the undoubted ap
pearance of having been written by a
second party. "A, B." must have
furnished the material and eome oue
else reared tho 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 the first nrticle cannot be the
author of the second, because the style
is very different, and "A.. B." could
not possibly have made tho mistakes
which are found in this latter commu
nication. "A. B." does-not pretend to
be a Latin and Greek scholar, and yet
has managed some way to get some
Latin into bis recent 'production I If
"A. B." is the author of the document
bearing his name, he reminds me '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 wajl"?and then
labored, with all his might, to make
his audience believe him to be a pro
"A. B." pronounces all "allusions to
I he Rev. Mr Hartley, and the Antioch
church as false in tottf, ab iuitio, ad
finem/' and brands it 'as a wilful false
hood." He 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
whose communication do you find the
most angry and tempestuous epithets?
He makes an admission which,thanks
to Gon, I cannot make, viz:?He says
I dischargod"dirtat 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 am I an 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,;"! love ntjfr baptiBt -broth
ren, and give you nvy christinu greet
ings." Nothing of this nature present
ed itself in the reply to my sermon.
"Do you understand r
If my statements, in regard to the
Rev. Mr. Hartley, are untrue why
were the facts not. given ? The wife of
a baptist brother said that Mr Hartley
was sent foi; certificates to this elfect
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
tho 20th of August 3871,1 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 Baruwell county, S. C,, and said,
that the diderent 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 the
course of the evening, ho asked me
some questions in reference to the ex
pression: "Communing together," I
then told him that I had been informed
thnt the Rev. J. G. Williams of his
church was administering the Lord's
Supper to the Lutherans ard Metho
dists. Not long after this, it reached
my cars that the reverend gentleman
was telling it around that, I had said
I was mistaken, to which false rumor
I replied iu these terms: "If Rov
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 several
very reliable gentlemen, and ono of
our own Ministers, told me thnt such
was tho fact; and I now have a certi
ficate from ono of those reliable men
and can get a dozen others if I want'
them. Ij ore it is:?"This is to certify
that myself and wife arc members of
tho Lutheran church in Baruwell
county S. C, and did receive tho Lord's
Supper from the Rev. Mr. Williams
of the baptist church together with his
members. C. Ehrhardt."
Rev. Williams will not, and dare not,
deny administering the communion to
mcmbors of Pedobaptist churches.
