To the Patrons of tho ' Times."
It will doubtless be a mutier of sur
prise to most of you to find, wit'i tins
issue, that the Times hits passed into
ether hands, and an explanation on
thy part may therefore be expected.
With this view I would slate, that
although the paper has never since its
establishment enjoyed tho patronage
it should, as au independent advocate
of the interests of the minority, com
peting with a well fed "official organ/'
supported liberally by tho Democrats,
it is to-day in as prosperous condition
ns it ever has been, tho subscription
list and advertising patronage being
just as largo?if not larger?than at
any other period of its existence.
The financial prospects of tho paper
would rather encourage continuance,
but, unfortunately, my health having
failed to 9i\ch an extent that it is im
possible for me to continue longer at
the case as a printer, and a change of
occupation being necessary, I have
concluded, since the last issue to make
a final disposition of the paper, and
have been compelled, in the absence of
other oners, to do the best I could, and
as the par';iea who havo bought
(the proprietors of the Orangeburg
Hews) have agreed to carry out our
contracts with subscribers and adver
tisers, I trust the arrangement will
In conclusion, I desire to return my
thanks for past patronage, and to wish
success, both to our former patrons
and to the new proprietors.

THE FORCE RILL.
Congress has adjourned, and the

ject of the bill was to give him 'the
the power to use the United States
troops and courts anywhere in the
South for the accomplishment of ins I
designs. In the four Suites of Ala

General Grant is making every ef
fort to secure the republican nomina
tion for next President, and we hope
he will succeed in getting it; for if he
does, and the Democrats oppose him
by such a mau ns Tilden, of jN'cw
York, Thurmau or Allen, tho issue
will be the civil against military su
premacy, in which case Grunt will
certainly be beaten.
He is doing the very thing to defeat
his part}', and if tho Democrats only
continue to act with the wisdom which
has marked their course of late, they
will be successful. The action of the
Grant party in Louisiana and Ar
kansas, and their attempt to pass this
iorcc bill, ns well as all other meas
ures tending to military supremacy,
have changed public opinion all over
the country, and if tho democrats con
tinue to champion tho civil cause
against the military, and insert in
their platform all those purely demo
cratic pinciples which aim at tho
amelioration of the oppressed, and the
establishment of good government,
their tiiumph will be irresistible.
Tradition tells us that when the
Huguenots first settled on the coast of
South Carolina one of their fust acts
was to require every land owner to
plant and cultivate at lenst two acres
of breadstuff's for every member of
tli3 family, and subsequently they
passed a kindred act apprenticing
every man or woman who had no
daily employmont to sonii industrious
farmer, for the purpose of making
them grow provisions. There is no
doubt that at the present time it would
be a blessing to tho couu'.ry if a law
wna passed requiring every person
idling or sponging around large cities,
like New York or Charleston, to bo
taken up and put lo work on some
well organized farm.
It is an imposition for tho farmers
to Iced :,ueh a horde who arc skulking
from held work, and consuming with
out producing a grain for the Bt'Ston
oneo of their fellow-beings. There
are too many, also, standing behind

Major M. 11. Doluny, ,tho colored

March 5th. His subject was "Tho
Present Political issues of tho South."
He was introduced to n largo au

dition o/.' things at tho South, which
he urged tho Northern people to ac
quaint themselves with more thor

always continue so were it not for the
intermeddling of a few scalawags and
carpet-baggers, who, in order to keep
in office, leach the colored people that

His audience vras composed of

General Gordon, of Georgia, aud Mr.
Lnmar, of Mississippi, two eloquent
Southern statesmen, have, by invita
tion, taken the stump in New Hamp
shire, in the interest of the democratic
ticket. They have appointments to
speak every evening until election
day. They are liberal democrats and
will convince tho Northern people j
that the Southern people are neither
ruffians nor instigators of violence
against tho Union, as the blatant
Butler would have them believe.

There ie nothing new in tha Car?
dozo matter, except the adoption of a
r&rolution, by both houses, requiring
the attorney-general to assist the com
mittee in preparing an address for
Cardozo's removal. Jn the past two
days there seems to have been n cur- \
rent in Cardozo's favor, and it is now |
.stated confidently, by his friends, that
many who voted for the appointment
of the committee will not vote for the
address. The proceeding threatens to
bo long. Chancellor Johnson and
Mr. Trcnholm represent the conserva

will probably bo presented to day.
Tribute of Respect.
At a meeting of the session of the
Orangeburg Presbyterian church held
on the 1st March, the following Min
ute was adopted in reference to the
death of Dr. E. J. Oliveros: ?
Dr. E. J. Olivcros was born at St.
Augustine, Florida, on the 15th May,
1836, and died from tho effects of a
fall from his house on the 12th Jan
uary, 1875, and was consequently in
the thirty -ninth year of his age. He
early turned his attention to the study
of medicine, and graduated in the
Medical College in Philadelphia,
when he was about twenty years of
ago. Ho at once commenced tho
practice of medicine in Thomas
County, Gr,., where he remained for a
number of yoars in tho discharge of a
good practice. At the commence
ment of the late war he joined the
Confederate army and served to its
close, as surgeon, in Georgia, South
Carolina and Virginia. Immediately
after the war lie settled in Oraugeburg,
when he gave up the practice of med
icine, nnd carried on a large and suc
cessful business as druggist and apoth
ecary, in which business he continued
to the time of his death. Only one
week before his death, his house and
stoic, with all his stock, were con
sumed by a devastating fire, which
laid in ashes a largo part of our town.
Scarcely anything was saved from the
flames. This loss he bore with un
complaining Christian submission,
recognizing God's hand in taking
away what he had given. And while
the whole community was yet stagger
ing under tho heavy loss which had
been i!i!!i''!"'i on it?senrfplv n.ble to
j realize the extent of its loss and suf
io.iiig?he himself, one of its most
prominent and uaolVl members, by a
laptaiu Hood, who served in
provideuco sad nud mysterious to us,
was ?uddefily taken awiry from Us, in
tlie full vigor of health, and with
scarcely a moment's warning. X
Dr. Oliveros was born of Roman
Catholic parents, and reared under
the influence of that church; but-when
he canic'io manhood he was led, utter
maturo deliberation, to renounco that
faith, and united with the Boston
Presbyterian church in Thomas Co.,
On., then under the pastoral care of
Rev. Eli. Graves; and in 18(3-1 he
trnnsfetrcd his membership to this
church. On the 28th Juno of tho
snmo year ho was united in marriage
to E. Rose C. Beach, who, with three
children, still survive him. In Feb.
1867 ho was set apart to thfi-ffffico of |
deacon in tho Orangeburg church;
and in May, 1871, he was ordained to
the office of ruling elder, both or which
offices ho filled to tho comfort 3nd ed
ification of God's people.
Dr. Oliveros was a good citizen, a
kind and nfTectionage husband and
father, an exemplary Christian;, and a
faithful ruler in God's house* His
place is now vacant in our Councils.
We shall no more meet with hjlm here
and take sweet cuuusel together; but
trust wo shall meet him againiu "the
general assembly and Church1 of tho
first born which aro written in Heav
en. We mourn his loss; but we mourn
not ns those who havo no hope. He
has doubtless entered into Iiis rest,
and received tho "Well done, good
and faithful servant; enter thou into
the joy of thy Lord." "Aud I heard
a voice from heaven sayingrunto me,
write, blessed are the dead which die
in the Lord from henceforth; yea, saith
the Spirit; that they may rest from
their labors, and their works do fol
RctolviO, That in the death <*I Dr. E. J. j
Oliveros this church has Lst a cealous and
faithful supporter, a wise counsellor, and an
exemplary Christian-r?ne who cherish od an
abiding interest in its welfare, and who, wo
believe, conscientiously tried to discharge
his duties, both as a private Christian and
a ruler in God's house. ^

"It is an outrage.us shame that the

to go unpaid altogether, or until a
