made the following report which was
We recommend as the Democratic
platform of South Carolina in 1878,
enunciations of the same principles,
policies and pledges, as were contain
ed in the platform of 1870, which is
as follows, to wit: "The Democratic
party of South Carolina, in Conven
tion assembled, announces tho follow -
ing as its platform of principles: We
reiterate our acceptance in perfect
good faith of the Thirteenth, Four
teenth and Fifteenth amendments, to
the Federal Constitution, accepting
and standing upon them; we turn
from the settled and final past to the
great, living and momentous issuesof
the present and the future.
We reaffirm the platform ofjprin
ciplcs announced by the Nationa 1
Democratic party assembled at St. j
Louis, and in accordance with th o
declaration of that platlorm and thu
utterances and acts of our distinguish
rd leader, Wade Hampton, we call
upon all of our fellow citizens irre
spective of mce, color or previous
condition, to unite with us in confin
ing the work of reform and redemp
tion inaugurated, by the Democratic
party of South Carolina, for it is evi
dent that substantial aud lasting re
form is impossible within the ranks
of the Republican party of this State.
We have charged and convicted tho
Republican party with arraying race
against race, creating disturbances
and fomenting difficulties; with prosti -
luting the elective franchise, tamper
ing with the ballot-box, and holding
unfair and fraudulent elections, with
having accumulated an enormous
debt; mismanaged the finance, and
injured the credit of the State; with
levying exorbitant taxes, and squand
ering them when collected, thus wring
ing from the toil and livelihood of
the honest poor man of the State a
largo perceutuni of his hard earnings
without giving in return any comp u\? j
sation therefor, and recklessly involv- j
ing in debt a majority of the counties
ot the State. Its management of our
penal and charitable institution-* was j
a shnmo and a disgrace. \Ve clmr^?
its legislation as ilouioraluingj parti ?
sail and disgrace I ul, and the venality
and corruption which characterized
every branch of the government;
executive, legislative and judicial, as
having no parallel in the history o f
nations, it created a multiplicity of'
tin necessary 1 and useless olfic '3; tjoyi
plicated in thoir system and luiiijctfi
stfrllly' expensive, and cau never p'uri*
fy itself, give good and impartial
government, or by its moral force and
character exercise in its full so ve r
eignty. the law of the land We do
imi'^cbarge this condition ofthiugi,
which every patriot must?ileeplyde
plore, upon the masses of the party,
but upon their leaders, who nadc
such fatal use of their con fid*? dee and
trust, for it is our (inn conviction that
all the good people of the State of
hoth races desire pence and prosper
ity. We therefore call upon aM of
. fi.Uj.:.._? - o
our ic; if! ? ?<>.??>, 111 osirwiii vip to
race or past party affiliation, to join
08 in preserving the good name of our
.-tat?', and in maintaining her digni ty
and character among the Common
wealths of this greatcountry We
iliseountcnunce all disturbauco of the
peace of the .State, and denounce all
instigators and promoters thereof,
ami earnestly call upon all of our
fellow-citizens, irrespective of party
lines, to exercise forbearance and
cultivate good will; ami if the' gooern
mcut of the State is continued in our
control, we pledge oursclucs to protect
the.persons, rights and jtropc ty of all its
people, and to specif ily bring to summary
Justice any who dare violate them
We desire a fair and peaceable
election, appealing to the reason and
not the passion of the people, and
have guaranteed by law a fair elec
tion and1 a fair count. We call upon
?all of the patriot sons of Carolina to
join u3. Our object is continued re
form, retrenchment and relief, that
by honesty and econ?'.uy we may still
further reduce the taxes ahd lighten
the burdens of the people, giving at
the same time absolute security to the
rights and property of all. Upon
these paramount issues we cordially
invite the cooperation of every
Democrat and Republican who is
earnest and willing to unite with us
in this great work.
We recommend to the favorable
consideration of the Convention the
followed resolutions, and re
commended that the same do p.tss,
namely: the resolution offored by
Mr. Uuist, of Charleston, in relation
to the unity of the Democratic party
"Resolved, That the unity and in
tegrity of the Democratic party is of
paramount importance to the success
of our cause and the welfare of our
people in the ensuing election, and
we repudiate all fusion or coalition
with the Republican party, and most
unqualifiedly condemn any Indepcud
t nt movement whatever, us in imical
to the people and destructive of their
interests and welfare.
That for the development of our
growth as a people, and of our re
sources as a Stale, a bureau of immi
gration and agriculture should bo
established, having lor its object the j
encouragement of and holding out
inducements to, honest and indus
trious emigrants from other countries
to settle among us, and designed to
stimulate increased and improved
production of whatever may be grown
upon our soil; and wo recommend to
the General Assembly thospeedy en
actment of such laws as will found
euch a bureau upon a permanent and
practical basis, and provide for its
ready and active operation, to the
attainment ol this desirable end."
That this Convention views with
the deepest concern the troubles
which have arisen in the upper por
tion of the State in the enforccmen t
of the excise laws of the United States,
relating to tho illicit distilling of
wli^key, and is extremely solicit" us
tlnra this subject should be fairly
convidcrcd by Congress, and some law
devised in amendment of or supple

willj remove the existing ca isas of
irriijation, alleviate the pres.mil tniuli
les oV.our people, insure obedience by
virtt.te of a recognition of the justice
of lhe .laws, and restore peace and
quiet where discontent now reigns;

Loneliness of the Ocean.
One who has never travelled upon
thcocean expects to lind it somcwhit
thickly populated. He thinks oflltc
vast travel and tiallic that goes ovor
the wafers, ami he is ready to imag
ine that the great deep is alive with
this hurrying to and fro of nations
He reads of lands whose commerce
whitens every sea, and ho is ready to
think that tho ocean is as full of sails
as the harbor of some mighty me
tropolis. But he finds h is mistake.
As ho h aves the land, the ships begin
to (iU-- ^car; as he. goes on hi - way

throng^, way; but then again,
there -^vill be many days when not a
single i.sail will be seen. There arc
spaces,.1 measured by thousands of
miles, [over which no ship has ever
passedJ The idea of'a nation's com
merce [whitening every sea is tho wild -
est fancy. If all the ships that ever
have been built were brought togeth
er in a^ single licet, they would lill hu t
a hamll's breadth of the ocean. Tho
space, therefore, that man and his
w orki-' occupy on tho sea is so small in
its ex tent that the hold on it. by his
power is slight and superficial. Both
together are as nothing. The ocean
covers three-fourths of the surface
of tHc globe; anil by far tho greater
portion of this vast expanse is, and
ever ; has been, f ree from man's pre
sence and visitation.
Mr. T J Giver and D T Black
made a narr iw escape from being
killed by lighting during tho storm
of last Friday night. They were in
a wagon with a sewing machine, and
when at tho fork of the Spartauburg
road about a mile from town, the
elcctrh ity from a flash of lighting
knocked the horse down, turned over
the wagon and threw the men to the
ground. The men and horse tfWO
stunned for sometime, but neither was
seriously injured, although Mr. B'ack
complains of unpleasant feelings in
tho region of the heart and his ribs.
They are all up ami about. No in

His secretary suddenly approached
the wiudow and gazed abstracted 1 y
out upon the trees in the tubs whose
emerald branches were gracefully
swaying in the summer biee/.e in
front of the saloon across the way.
The former fixed his curious eyes
upon the Mayor for a moment, who
finally sufficiently recovered himself
to pay :
'My dear sir, your daughter needs
no license to write p -etry. She can
write as much as ever she pleases and
it will be all right.'
'Wont it be agin the law to do it
without a license?'inquired the man.
'She has beard that Byron and Mrs.
Ilcmans used a good many poetic
licenses in their writ ins and she thou
ght .-he'd better do as the rest of 'em
did. But if it's all right without, it's
probably owin' lo the freedom ot our
institutions and sich like.'
'Exactly,' said the Mayor.
And the satisfied rustic walked out
of the office pit king his teeth with a
small piece of a fence rail.

'There, that is finished and folded

Bertha, as she took ofTher littles* er

ty blue muslin dress, on which she
had been busy for several days.

'Pretty well done for me, auntie;

'That is encouraging. Now, Ber
tha, do you know that something else
of yours is also finished and folded
up this evening?'
'What else can it be, Aunt Mabel?
This is the only piece of w irk I ha^O
