vi'etr? or opinions of our Coirespondcnls.
To the Patrons of the ? Times."
It will doubtless be a matter of sur
prise to most of you to find, with this
issue, that the Times has passed into
other hands, aud au explanation on
my part may therefore be expected.
With this view I would state, that
although tho paper has never sinco its
establishment enjoyed tho patroungo
it should, as an independent advocate
of the interests of the minority, com
peting with a well fed "official organ,"
supported liberally by the Democrats, j
it is to-day in on prosperous condition
ns it ever has been, tho subscription
list and advertising patronage being
just as large?if not larger?than at
any other period of its existence.
The financial prospects of the paper
would rather encourage continuance,
but, unfortunately, my health having
failed to such an oxtent that it is im
possible for mo to continue longer at
the case op a printer, and a change of
occupation being necessary, I have
concluded, sinco tho last issue to make
a final disposition of tho paper, and
have been compelled, in the absence of j
other offers, to do the best I could, and
as the parties who havo bought
(the proprietors of the Orangeburg
News) havo agreed to carry out our
contracts with subscribers and adver
tisers, I trust the arrangement will
In conclusion, I desire to return my j
thanks for past patronage, and to wish
success, both to our former patrons
and to the new proprietors.

THE FORCE RILL.
Congress has adjourned, aud the
force bill, the pet measurelofPres^
^drmt Grnnt pno nntr-pnaacrl^' TllOoff
ject of the bill was to give him thft
the power to use tho United States
troops and courts anywhere in the
South for the accomplishment of his
designs. In the four States of Ala
bama, Louisiana, Mississippi and Ar
kansas he could suspend the writ of |
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, aud the Democrats oppose him
by such a man as Tilden, of New
York, Thurman or Allen, tho issue
will be tho civil against military su
premacy, in which case Grant will
certainly bo beaten.
Ho is doing the very thing to defeat
his pa'rty?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
lorce bill, as well as all other meas
ures lending to military supremacy,
have changed public opinion all over
the countiy, and if the democrats con
tinue to champion th*e civil cause
against the military, and insert in
their platform all those purely demo
cratic pinciples which aim at the
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 tho const of
South Carolina one of their first acts
was to recpiire every land owner to
plant and cultivate at least two acres
of breadstuff's for every member of
tha family, and subsequently they
passed a kindred act apprenticing
every man or woman who had no
daily employment to som& 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 the couu'.ry if a law
was passed requiring every person
idling or sponging around largo cities,
like New York or Charleston, to bo
taken up and put to work on sonic
well organized farm.
It is an imposition for the farmers
to Iced sueh a horde who are skulking
from field work, and consuming with
out producing a grain for tho susten
ance of. their fellow-beings. There
are too many, also, standing behind

Major M. U. Deluny, the colored
conservative candidate for lieutenant
governor, delivered a lecture by re
quest in Trving's Hall, New York ou
March' ?th. His subject was "Tho
Present Political issues of tho South."
Ho was introduced to a largo au
dience by Hon. William Cullen Bry
ant, and soon portmyed the true con
dition of things at the South, which
ho urged the Northern people to ac
quaint themselves with more thor
oughly. - Ho told them that tho two

posed toward ench other and would
always continue so wero it not for the
intermeddling- of a few scalawags and
carpet-baggers, who, in order to keep
in office, teach the colored peoplo that

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

There is nothing new in ths Car
dozo matter, except the adoption of a
resolution, by both houses, requiring
tho attorney-general to assist tho com
mittee in preparing an address for
Cardozo's removal. Jn tho 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 tho committee will not vote for the
address. The proceeding threatens to
be long. Chaucellor Johnson and
Mr. Trenholm represent tho conserva
tives on tho committee. Tho address
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, tho following Min
ute was adopted in rcferenco to the
death of Dr. E. J. Oliveros: *
Dr. E. J. Olivoros was born at St.
Augustine, Florida, on the 15th May,
1836, and died from tho effects of a
fall from his house on tho 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 tho
Medical College in Philadelphia,
when lie was about twenty years of
ago. Ho at once commenced the
practico. of medicine in Thomas
County, Ga., where ho remained for a
number of years in tho discharge of a
good practice. At the commence
ment of tho lato war he joined tho
Confederate army and served to its
close, as surgeon, in Georgia, South
Carolina and Virginia. Immediately
after the war he settled in Oraugeburg,
when ho gave up the practice of med
icine, and carried on a largo and suc
cessful business ns druggist and apoth
ecary, in which business he continued
to tho timo of his death. Only one
week before his death, his house and
store, 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 tho
flumes. This loss he borei with un
complaining Christian submission,
recognizing God's hand in taking
away what he had given. And while
tho whole community was yet stagger
ing under tho heavy loss which had
been inflicted on it?scarcely ablo to
realize the extent of its loss and auf?
?c.mg?he himself, one of i?.-j most
Prominent und tiaclVl members, by a
providence- sad and mysterious to us,
was suddenly taken r.wiry from us, in
the full vigor of health, and with
scarcely n moment's warning.
Dr. Olivcroa was borii of Roman
Catholic parents, and reared under
the influenco of that church; but'when
lie came'to manhood he was led, after
mature deliberation, to rehguncp that
faith, and united with tho Boston
Presbyterian church in Thomas Co.,
Ga., then under the pastoral care of
Rev. Eli. Graves; and in 18?4 ho
transfeircd his membership to this
church. On the 28th Juno of the
same year ho was united in marriage
to E. Rose C. Beach, who, with' three
children, still survive him. Iii Feb.
1867 ho was set apart to th&gypca of
deacon in tho Orangeburg church;
and in May, 1871, ho was ordained to
the office of ruling elder, both of which
offices he tilled to the comfort stud ed
ification of God's people.
Dr. Oliveros was a good citizen, a
kind and affectionage husband and
father, an exemplary Christian, and a
faithful ruler in God's housfe* His
place is now vacant in our round Is.
We shall no more meet with hjim here
and take sweet couusel together; but
trust wo shall meet him again in "the
general assembly and Church of the
first bora which are written iii^ Heav
en. We mourn lib loss; but we mourn
not as those who havo no hope. He
has doubtless entered into Iiis rest,
and received the "Well done, good
and faithful servant; enter thou into
the joy of thy Lord." "Aud I heard
a voice from heaven sayingrunto mo,
write, blessed are tho dead which dio
in the Lord fromIienceforth;^ycn, snith
the Spirit; that they may rest from
their labors, aud their workp. do fol
low them." I
Jtcsolvul, That in the death cl Dr. E. J.
Olivcroa tins church has Lst a zealous and
faithful supporter, a wise counsellor, and an
exemplary Christian- -ono who cIu.-ri?liod an
abiding interest in its welfare, aiid who, wo
boiicvej conscientiously tried to dhchorge
his duties, both as a private Christian- and
a ruler in God's house. V
Resolved, That we recognize AjSod'i liand
in that stroke, by which he .wuno suddenly,
and in a way-sc distressing to us, taken
away from us; and that we bow in-silent
submission to the Divine will, recognizing
God's right to call for His own when and
how ho will, and thanking J lim for the
fathful 8CrvjfgWttl nious exauiplc, which,
abled to render.''
Resolved, That we tender to the family of
our deceased brother our sincere and heart
felt sympathy in their sore atlliction, aud
commend them to tho grace of Christ which
abounds towards his people in all their sor

of records be inscribed to his memory, and
