Tho. Radicals of Beaufort are on
tlie war path in real earnest, hut
there secru to he dissension among
their ranks and a split in their party.
Ou Tuesday tho 26th instant at. a
niRPB meeting of colored people, tho
party leaders wore the hobby of
every speaker and had heaped upon
them all the slangaud vituperation
known in the unabriged edition of t he
Radical vocabulary, until tho Ring
tail .Roarer, Joe Robinson, made a
mad attack upon Tom Hamilton and
Myers, of the Wallace House fame,
upon whom he charged tho downfa'l
of Radicalism in this State. Hamil
ton, with his usual independence an d
grace, made a sensible and stirring
speech in which he declared thai
ofliec bad no attraction for him, nor
did he cat o whether they (Radicals)
thought him ripht or wrong. At the
bar of his own conscience he stood
for judgment, and appealed to time
for a vindication of his course and tho
purity of his motive*.
Atter this niauly address from one
in whom the colored people should
feel ? pride, ??iii? narrow headed
viper offered tho usual resolutions
reading Hamilton out of tho party
which were adopted by the meeting.
VV. J. Whipper poured fourth a
stream of wisdom in a lengthy har
angue by way of abuse of tho old
party leaders, saying that not oue,
against whom fraud in the slightest
degree could bo charged, should be a
candidate for office. Some one in
the crowd called his attention to W.
J. Whipper, when lie cried out, "I
shall not be a candidate for office."
Poor Hamilton received a large por

in returning to their homes. This
incidont does not admit of comment ?
the fact speaks strong enough.?
The above is the best commentary
we have yet seen upon the unselfish
generosity and nobility of character
of our Governor. Can the Radicals
produce the record of any thing like
it, or the faintest resemblance to it iu
the conduct of D. II. Chamberlain or
any other carpet-bag or seal la wag \
official of their party. Wo have

We have had colored people, coining
to us in want of the actual necessities
of life when asked, ''why dont you go
to y our Radical leaders and officials
for help," say they had tried them
aud were deuied time after time.
The colored people know these
things arc so, the Radical leaders
know llioy arc tacts, and yet the
people are as much the dupes of the
I leaders to-day as they ever were.

Governor will lie remembered in

An old feud existing between the
families of Toncys and Booths of

engineer, M. Lesseps, who cut tho
Sue/. Canal, was to superintend the
work. Also a groat railroad has boon
constructed in Peru by General flou
ry Meiggs, who died a short time ago,
between Callao and Groza. These,
with the unncling of Mont Ccuis,
and the Pacific Railroad from Omaha
to San Francisco, constitute the w In
ders of the nineteenth century. And
now tonics the Texas Pacific Rail
road to San Diego, which groat work
will be built in ? few yenrx. Thor? is
no power or influence on earth that
can prevent it.
But there is another great rail
road, which, if it can bo built, will
eclipse all other enterprises in that
line, and will be the grandest rail
road in tho world, connecting tho
Old ami New World, a id thus avoid

American continent with Asia and
Europe. Just think of it ! A rail
road from Washington City to St.
Petersburg, with only forty miles of
water between those great cities of
the New and Old World !
My plan is for the United States,
Great Britain and Russia, or the
capitalists of these great countries, to
construct this road. Lot tho road be

country, he come out as an indopon

is "yn.-dullod in the mysteries of con

were ho to submit his claim*.taftfie
suffrages ol the party wilh who in
he claims to havo affiliated,
his defeat, would bo certain and

iudcfensible. How humiliating it
tifvj be to havo thus openly to ac
knowledge his own we?kiuvs. Such

can get so many local conservative
votes, it maters not who is the noini

expensive, and those who are under
pcv&onal obligations to myself are
numerous, so that 1 can rely on bo
many. Again, there will be quite a
number within the ranks to whom
the nominee will be personally objec
tionable, and I shall secure that elo

Republican vote and thus you see my

such in this State who aro see'dug to

To the, h.tlitor Orangeburg Times:
There appeared in cditorinl
columns of your last issuo an article
headed The. Radical Ring Convention
in which a lew remarks made by
myself in tho Republican Convention
of the 5th August were so greatly
distorted and so wide of the truth,
that I feol compelled to appeal to
your candor and fairness for a timely
correction of the same. I have noth
ing to sny as to the justice or propri ?
ety of your comments.as theso un
doubtedly wero dictated by a mis
understanding of the language used
on that occasion. Much that I said
has been inistnted and murh sup
pressed necessary to an understand
ing of tho context, but I especially
object to being represented as making
this false statement, that "not, one
school teacher had been paid." What
i did say , was that the school teachers
of this County had not ban paid in full

years on years aguiic, probably
about the time of the Revolution, a
man of Irish decent passing through
tho country on foot, atopped at a far
mers house ami a?.kol f>r work.
Work wis givcu him, bat he soon
left, giving as the rcaion, th it t!io
work was hard and the diet light.
He was fed morning, noon and
night on homiuey. It was homiuey

When he left he shook oil' the dust of
his feet against tho place and called
it ''flomuey Town." Tunis has w irk
ed great changes since then, Chan
ges in tho appearance of the country
in tho appearance ot the poople, iu
i thoir modo of dress and manner of
living. When years ago, tho hard
worked Irishman found nothing but
homiuey, now rico, potatoes etc
aro iu great abundance. One or
two facts strike a traveler as ho pas
ses through this section. The first
is, that it is very densely populated.
There aro houses along the road,
houses along tho creeks, houses in tho
woods, houses every where., and those
houses arc all well filled.
Another fact is the thrift and con
tentment of these people. Their
houses, farms, orchards, lior.lOS and
cattle all indicate this. They aro a
laboring people, they know how to
work and are not ashamed nor afraid
to do it, and the result is abundance
and contentment. I have often
thought that such people, away from
the excitement and temptations of
the city, village and rail road places,
living in the quiet of tho country, re
lying on thoir own manhood, inde
pendent in their possession, eating
thoir bread honestly earned in the
"sw eat of their face," arc the happi
est people the sun shines on. Anoth
er fact is they aro a church going
