siastic in urging tho Legislature to

TUB GOVERNOR'S MESSAGE.
Gov* Chamberlain's last message
to the Legislature exhibited a genuine
spirit of reform. He renews many of
the recommendations of his inaugural,
such as the registration of electors,
and the election of justices of the
peace in accordance with the require
ments of the constitution. Ho also
recommends strongly tho enacting of
a law putting into effect the syst&m of
cumulative voting in elections of in
corporated cities or towns, and thus
testing the theory upon a' small scale
before trying it over the whole State.
So far Chamberlain has made .a
good governor, and if he continues ou
this line ho will be supported by con
servatives as well as republicans.
THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE.
President Grant's message on Lou
isiana affairs is but another exhibition
of his glaring mediocrity and inten
sity of feeling against the people of
the South. In spite of his boasted
firmness rit is nothing but a weak
apology for his unconstitutional ac
tions, and shows plainly that he is not
nt caso in his position. He feigns be
lief: in all the stories of Southern out
rages, and thus hopes to blind the
people, if he cannot quiet his con
It is a dangerous thing to tamper
with liberty, and the republican party
will find it so to their sorrow.
HUMBERT AND ANDREWS AGAIN.
A committee of the Senate, com
posed of Whittcniore, Smalls and
Smith, came to our town on last
Thursday to investigate the charges
of J. L. Humbert against T. G. An
drews. Considering the character of
"Whittcniore of cadet-ship renown, it
was naturally thought by our citizens
that the scheme was to whitewash the
whole affair for the reputation of the
Senate and of the party. By the
published proceedings, however, in
the News and Courier, things have
taken quite an unexpected turn. The
committee seems to have been some
what divided. Smalls is reported in
his discussion ns saying that "Hum
bert proved everything that had been
charged against Andrews." Whitte
more and the other member of the
committee seem to have been opposed
to Smalls in the work, although it
does not appear whether they deny
Strange to say, at the instance of
Whittcniore two conservative rnem
sbcrs have been added to the commit
tee, and there seems to be an earnest
-effort to get the testimony of Humbert
before l.o is convicted.
The committee ns now constituted
arrived in town on Monday, and wo
hope before we go to press to give the
result of their investigations.
As we go to press we learn from
a dispatch the News and Courier
that they have not agreed upon a re
port. We are waiting for a lull de
velopment of the facts before giving
.our individual views.

percentage due them for the use of their
rooms, and the balance of ?232.86 was duly
forwartled to Columbia und has been ttc

In addition to this the sum of $S8 was
raised by subscription for the monument
which was also forwarded together with list
of subscribers. These sums, with over two
hundred dollars raised by subscription by
the ladies of the Orangeburg branch of the
Monument Association several years ago,
makes up a contribution through the ladies
of ihid county to our State monument of
over $500 00.
If the other counties do as well ns this, the
monument to the memory of onr gubant

On the Death of Mrs. Olivia C Hoi man, who
Died at her Residence in the Fork on the
lOf/i day of January, 1875.
No longer need of affections care
Until the worn and still form resting there;
Tbc tireless vigils of love are past,
And the grave hath claimed its own at last.
Smooth the soft eye, the placid brow?
Peace like a halo enwreaths it now;
The labored breathing, the moan of pain,
Shall never yotu fond hearts rend again.
Now onward, with slow and gentle tread,
Solemnly bearing the holy dead
With pule hands folded over her breast
Reverently, tenderly lay her to rest.
The golden beams of the setting sun?
Meet type of the brief life-journey done?
Like the light of hope dispel Is the gloom
That lieth a pall on the waiting tomb.
The chinch of her love breathes a holy spell
Over that sacred and lonely dell,
And the fading waves of the flowing river,
And all her sorrows, have ceased forever.

Animal Deposit. A cargo of 500 tons now
on the woy to thin port. This gliano gave
?rcat satisfaction In Virginia and North
'arolina the past season. Circular and cer
tificates sent on application.
Prof. Wilson, of Baltimore, Md., says of
this guano: "By a critical examination of
the analysis of tho various cargoes vou have
imported, a striking feature is du: great
regularity in tht percentage of tho impor
tant constituents ss%:itial_ for tho produc
tion of all crops."
Prof. F. A. Gcnth, of Philadelphia, Pcnn.,
says: "The guano is evidently of animal or
igin, and tho minute hones which were dis
covered in the Bame indicate that it is the
result of the decay of bat.*, mire, Ac. The
quantity of organic matter which is still
present is about 12 per cent., and this yields
about 2} per cent of ammonia, i A portion
of the nitrogen is present as nitric, acid, of
which about 3 per cent, were found. AH
tho nitrogen present would be equivalent to
about :n per cent, of ammonia. The piios
pboricacid in ihe guana averaged about 12}
percent., equal to 27.3 per cent, of Bone
Phosphate. A considerable quantity of the
phosphoric acid, however, is present as so
called neutral Phosphate of Lime, which,
l>cing slightly solublo in water, renders the
Guano es quick in junction as a correspond
ing quantity of Superphospates would do.
The small percentage of potash which wns
found in analysis adds to its value. From
all tho experiments which I have made of
the Guanahani Guano no doubt can exist
that it is a valuable manure."
Prof. H. 0 White, of the Goorgia State
Agricultural Society, says: "A? shown by
the analysis, this guano contains, in good
proportion, all the elements which are gen
erally considered as of value for plant food,
and the forms and combinations in which
they are'present are such as to render them
available to and assimilable by the plant, I
should judge that the proper use of tins ar
ticle for purposes of fertilization would be
attended with great profit."
Prof. Charles U. bhepard, Jr., in a recent
nnalysis of thi-i Guano, says: 'This Guano
(of animal origin) would appear from its
physical and chemical properties to answer
every reasonable expectation of a chemical
