The Tax-Payer.
This is tho title of the paper the
prospective publication of which we
spoke of a few week?since. The first
issue of the new journal appeared en
Saturday last, nod was eagerly
sought after and read by the many
friends of Mr. Ilcyward, its popular
and courteous editor.
In bis salutatory Air. Ilcyward
takes high grouud as a journalist,
and advocates the solidification of
the Democratic party, and the culti
vation of a kindly feeling between all
parties. Our interests are identical,
and the Tax-Payer will endeavor to
organize a grand community of fuel
ing iu the County, and the advance
ment of its prosperity.
The typographical appearance of
our contcmpernry shows that there is
a skillful hand at the head of its pub
lishing department. It has many
excellencies iu this respect.
As a whole, the Tax-Payer bids
fair to be a pcrmaneut institution in
our midst, We again wish it success.
Gol. j0oi?nld R. Barton.
1 his gcntlhmnn entered upon the
duties of Auditor a few days since
In his bands tho people are satisfied
the matter of assess ing property will
l>o fixirly and impartially attended to.
Fresh from the I0U13 of the people,
be knows their wishes and needs, and
will properly represent them in the
fiscal department of the county. Col.
Barton is an honored citizen, an old
and reliable public servant, and we
welcome his return to official life.
Freight Discriminations.
It is over a thousand miles from
Charleston to St. Lqu'is, and yet the
freight upon flour per barrel from
that distant point to Charleston is
only ninety cents. It is only eighty
miles from Charleston to Orangcburg ,
but our merchants have to pay fifty
cents for each barrel of flour shipped
from Charleston here !
Why this discrimination against
Orangeburg ? Is it because thero is
no competing line between here and
Charleston ? or a desire on the part
of the managers of the South Caroli
na Railroad to injure the commerce
of this place for the benefit of some
other town ? If we are wroug in thus
conjecturing, we know of no other
cause to which to assign this manifest
inconsistency in the matter of
freights, on tho part of the Railroad
Company, save it be in a down right
determination to client our merchants,
because the road has chartered pow
ers and privileges. If this last hypo
thesis be true, our people should be
stir themselves between now and the
next election. They should endeav
or to select intelligent, energetic, and
fearless men for the Legislature'?men
who will not bo afraid to attack this
monstrous monopoly, the South Caro
lina Railroad Company, or to lay
bare its [oppressions and tho wrongs
it has, and is, inflicting upon the
toiling masses' For if the niorch int
has to pay high freights upon his
goods, tho amounts thus expended '
are always added to their cost, and
hence lali upon the consumers, who
iu nine cases out of every ten aro
farmers. Lot them then look about
and determine upon good men to
represent them in the General As*
scmbly. This Railroad Corporation ,
with a cheek of bras* and a heart of
stone, must bo reached somehow, and
the surest way is through the Legis
lature. It is a crimo to extort monoy
thus from our people for freights sim
ply because they can't help themselves.
Would it not be a good idea to call
a meeting *of our citizens fur the pur
pose of considering this matter of
oppression on the part of tho South
Carolina Railroad Company? ?
The"State Fair.
We have received a premium list
of the State Agricultural nnd Me
chanical Society for the Ninth An
nual Fair, to be held in Columbia
the 13th, 14th, 15th and 16th of No
vember next. Every preparation is
being made to make the occasion one
of great interest
The Secretary and Treasurer, Thos.
W. Holloway, makes the following
I. The offices nnd members of the
State Agricultural and Mechanical
Society would cordially invite far
mers, manufacturers and mechanics
to contribute specimens of their skill,
ingenuity and taste to this exhibi
tion, so as to make a true index of
the progress made by the Ststo in art
and agriculture.
II. Especially do we invite the
earnest co-operation of the uomcn of
the country to contribute by the
refinement of their taste and the ex-*
hibition of tho results of domestic
industry to add to the beauty of the
display, and to show how large a
part in the improvement of daily life
i& due to the quiet but useful labors
of the hearth and home.
"It is a Lie."
In the cours e of the Ewing-Mat
thews debate at Dayton Ohio, Gen.
Ewing assailed his opponent on the
ground of tho alledged MattheWS
Vonter compact. Mr. M:itiuwo' mm
wer was brief and to the point. "It
is said by General Ewing," said ho,
"that, in a certain critieat .- tage of tho
progress of the Presidential count, iu
Bpitc of a judicial decision of the judi
cial body to which all questions con
nected with it had been referred, I
appeared on the scene and intervened,
and for the purpose aud with the
effect of defeating certain Democrats
who orther wise would havejoiued with
others of their party in preventing
the declnrntion of the election that R.
B. Hayes is President, that then and
there with these Democrats I made
in the name nnd on the behalf of the
President of the United States, a dis
honest and dishonorable bargain, by
which he was permitted to bo declar
ed and inaugurated President upon
the promise, as a consideration, that
when ipaugii rated he would withdraw
the troops from Louisiana and South
Carolina, and so permit iu the latter
the Stnto government represented by
Wndc Hampton, and in the former
the State government represented by
Gen. Nichols, to be established as the
recognized governments of those
respective States. "Jho gentleman
went 3o far ns to particularize that
this bargain was iu writing. Now, I
intend to make my denial to cover it
in every form?written, vorhat, im
plied, expressed,collateral, incidental
?in every possible form, shape,
variety, mood, tense or view that the
ingenuity or tho malice of any mnn
may affirm it. It is a lie ! There is
not a word of truth iu it. There is
not a partinle of plnusiblo foundation
for it. There is not an event, a fact,
a document, an incident which could
justiiy a reasonable, conscientious
man, concerning tho possibility of it.
Every scrap that I ever wrote or
signed in connection with the history
of that event has been published far
and wide. If nny man has anything
yet, let him produce it. 1 dtfy all
my accusers."

The Ohio Election.
It is generally conceeded that the
Ohio campaign, now about to close?
tho election takes place next Tuesday
?is tho tamest and most lukewarm
on record. The most interesting
point in the contest was tho selection
of a Legislature that will namo Stan
ley Matthews' successor. An im
portant issue like that ought to have
made the canvnss lively; but it did
not. In the last election for Gover
nor, in 1875, Hayes defeated Allen
f>,444 votes. This in a total vote of
599,090. Hayes' percentage of tho
total vote polled was50.47; Allen's,
49.53. In the last Presidential elec
tion, Hayes carried the State by 7,
51G majority; total vote of the State,
059,771. Hayes received 50.214 per
cent, of the vote polled, und Tilden
49.073; Cooper" (Greenback") and
Smith (Prohibition) received 712 per
cent, of the total vote. In the last
General Assembly, the Republicans
had a majoiity of twenty-two on joint
Both parties claim the State rath r
feebly. The Democrats faintly hope
to make Bishop Governor by a com
fortable majority, say 20,000, or at
any rate to control the Legislature by
a small vote on joint ballot. The
Republicans, on the other hand, in a
vague sort of way, claim that West
will be elected by from 5,000 to 10,
000 majority. The workingmau's
movement throws an clement of doubt
all around. If it is as strong as sup
posed, the balance of powjr iu the
Legislature may belong to it. Ten
members elected by the workiugmeu
will do the job. The fact is neither
side is confident in Ohio, and all de
pends upon contingeucos, the scope
and force of which no man can safely
estimate, because they are in part
novel and eutirely problematical.

General H. 0. Butler.
. v
It will not be long before South
Carolina is again represented in the
House and Senate by the best and
ablest men in tlie State. General
Butler, who was elected by the legal
ly orga uized Legislature, will in all
probability be admitted to take his
seat as Senator. The fraud, who
claims a scat by reason of his election
by a body that never had any legal
existence and that fell to the ground
as scon as the military prop was re
moved, cannot be admitted. Should
the legality of General Butler's elec
tion be called into question by reason
of informality or illegality in the
organization of the present Legisla
ture, that question can be easily met.
The Legislature that elected General
Butler exercises all the functions and
powers that belong to the law mak
ing department of the government.
There is no longer any question as to
the rightful government. There is
but one in the State, and that is
recognized by the Executive, legisla
tive and Judicial Departments of the
Eederal Government. General But
ler is entitled to his seat as the Sena
tor elect from South Carolina. Should
tho Senate refuse to admit him it
must declnre a vacancy, because it
cannot admit Corbin. In the event
of a vacancy being declared Gen. But
ler will be re-elected by the Legisla
ture without opposition. He deserves
well of the State. His services de
serve to be rewarded. In the Senate
he would make for himself a record
of which all South Carolinians would
feel proud. Gen Butler is a man of
ability. Ho will retMcr his State as
faithful servico in the Sonate as our
own gallant Gordon. He is not an
impracticable extremist, but n ranu
of liberal, conservative and practical
views. He will be true to his State
and his section, but, at the same time,
he wiU be just and generous, and
comproheusive in all his views. Re
publican Senators will find Gen. But
ler to be as patriotic as *Sov. Hamp
ton. Although tho Senate is very
' close and the Republican party is np
prebensive of tlje Democrats obtain
ing control, we have strong hopes
that a sufficeiit number of right-think
ing Republican Senators will vote
with the Democrats to seat Gen. But

"Soldier" will tell what Judas, or
Longstrcet, or Mosby, or any of those
ancient or modern fellows, have to
do with the subject, which he attemp
ted to criticise, I will be very much
obliged to him.
Upon close examination, it is
found, that "Soldier" has jumbled a
whole lot of sentences and para
graphs together, picked up at ran
dom, here nnd there, nnd made a
(ling nt somebody, I ut ho will not
tell who that somebody is. I have
made a guess, however, and it I have
guessed right, "Soldier" not only
aimed in the wrong direction, but

to bo hoped that he will not pull
