Address of the State Democratic
APPOINTMENTS Fol! TUT. CA.Ml'AKSN. '
Tho State Executive Committee
Riiuouuce to their fcllow-c.itizcns that
the State canvass will formally open
on September !<>. Already tho coun
ties, in general, arc ready for action,
and the committee cannot doubt that
the campaign will be as brilliant as
Thron?diout the canvass the Domo
crnoy of South Carolina will have
but i ne rule of conduct. The plat
form <'I i i";T<;. adopted and reaffirmed
in ]<S7<^, is the Supreme law of the
Democratic party. I?y ii .'.<? h host
ami the lowest are Iwi i N > pi rson

Stale Convention, can change or
modify its wise proviso m tin l pali'io'
lie declarations. Within the line ul
the platlorni of the Democracy are
.-ale. Outside of it, and beyond it.
there is no true Democracy in South
Carolina. No issue nol made in iho
p'utforhi, ami ineonsi.-ieiil with i:,

platform and consilient v. .'.a it can

The platform of the Democratic
] arty of South Carolina i- al once a
history ami a prophecy. It is tho re
I cord of what i* past and the assur
ance ol' what is to come. In it are
declared Democratic principles and
j Democratic practice. The issue in

ocratic parly, is nol an issue of race.

State, a re tu complete the reform < > i

I So far as time and opportunity
j have admitted, the Democratic party
has kepi ti? the letter, and in spirit,
every plcdgoor promise made in th ?
platform ol Icj70. The State officers
[ elected two years ago arc again the
candidates uf the party. W ith the
same platform and the same candi
dates, holding beneficent possession of
every department ol the Stale gov
ernment, the Democracy of South
Carolina icseryC success and can
command it. Vigilance is necessary.
Active and incessant work is indis
?disable. Unity must be had. They
who slumber on in false security, they
who postpone tho preparations for the
fight, they who encourage or permit
dissension and division, for un\ rea
son oi upon any pretext, areas much
the public enemies sis are the politi
cal lepers whom Democratic rule
drives into the penitentiary oro.it of
the State. iMalcontonts, laggards,
disorgani/ers shall not pull down the
Democratic party; although they may
multiply its diflicultics a.id make the
struggle harder and more, desperate.
And when the battle is won, as it shall
h e, the Democratic party, lor its own
sake, will pass sentence upon any
who, not heing with us, are against
us, and make them fur all time poli
tical outcasts, despised by Democrats
of their ow n raco and shunned by the
colored Democrats who have been
tried and have kept the faith.
For the white Democrats, tho
Stato Committee arc sure no other
exhortation h needed. They know
full will thai Democratic rule, is
worth having, and that what is worth
having is worth keeping and will he
kept. By the colored Democrats, as
the State Committee believe, the solid
advantages of an enlightened ami
honest government aro thoroughly
appreciated. They have seen and felt
the difference between integrity and
I rascality, between lofty justice ami
partisan rule. The hope is that the
colored people, in larger numbers than
ever before, will inarch ben eith the
folds of the Democratic banner, and
so assist the Democracy in perfecting
the work of governmental reform
and industrial restoration.
The reign of ignorance and vice in
^'outh Carolina is pa.it and gout-.
Virtue, intelligence! and elevated
si itcsmunship shall, as during the
last two years, control Iii i public
affairs of South Carolina. For ibis lito
people fought in 1 170, and the sceptre
I then grasped, for the lirst time in
i igbt years, by pure and strong hands,
will not he laid down, and shtili not
in *\. cslcd away.

Beau Hickman and Canada Bill.
Canada Hill was onetime passing
through Washington, on his way to
New York, after a successful gam ?
hling tri]) on the steamboats of the
Western and Southern rivers. Tho
thought struck him that he would
stop and see Beau Hickruau, the
great wag, then world famous as a
clever ti ickstor. Tho two sports
melon the steps of tho huge marble
Capitol. Hickman had been pointed
out to Canada Bill by a hoot black.
'Is your name Hickman, pard ?'
inquired Bill, extending his hand.
'The same, sir. Whose hand might
I have the honor of pressing ?'return
ed Hickman, thinking that Iii4 now
acquaintance wa* a newly arrived
Western member of Congress.
'The band yoi grasp, pard,' re
sponded Bill, 'is oik generally know u
as being more able to deal cleverly
than fairly. 1, like your.solf. am one
ol society's razor Btrops. I am -.'
'Canada Bill, by gum !'
'Shake tho numhor-two-tiines?fo.t
I'm glad to see you Hickman.'
'How long are you going to stop iu

?Arc you known in thin city V
'Then I'll turn you to good ac

to venture on a sure thing ?'
' Right here,' end Canada iiil!
pulled forth two hugo rolis of bills.
'How would you like to turn that
into $12,000 within the noxt throo
'Name the job, and I'm your man.'
, 'Shi Wed lake a drink.' an 1
j'ickman led tho monlu tossor into
the card it).on of u fashionable sum
' The next day a genteel, a >! sum
looking man entered ilio .: enUein in 's
parlors at Wizard's Hotel, which
were tilled with Senators, Congress
men and oilice-seckers and holders of
all grades, lie carried a .-mal! note

'Gentlemen, I am collecting money
for a widow lady ami her three child
ren. They belonged to a once proud
but now cast-down family. If.you
will aid them please us'; no furth sr
questions, but give what you see lit.'
Iu the entire hotel the gentlemanly
beggar only received thrco donations
of twenty live cents each. The others
waved him impatiently aside, while
j some plainly told him he was an im
poster. Before leaving he said quiet
ly to the three gentlemen who ha 1
given him money :
This will he repaid you ten fold
to-morrow evening at this hour.
He then took the address ol each,
asking them to not fail to he in the
parlor next evening to get their mo n
ey, ami cautioning them to speak to
no one of his promise ? that he was
Orlando Matlcrson. president of
?'-?e Royal .London Society tor Hie
encoura?cincnt of Benevolence
As a matter of course, before he
had got a block away from th > hotel
every one knew all that he had sai l
and done, and all considered him
some crazy iannlic. Then a report
got about that he was an immensely
rich but insane English nobleman,
who spent yearly hundreds of thous
ands in seeking those out who wcro
willing to lend aid to the needy, an d
in rewarding them afterwards, so
j that, acceding to his cracked brain,
the cause ol charity might he in a
general way accelerated.
The next evening he came again,
asking alms, and every one was on
the lookout for him. He first singled
out the three gentlemen who had
given him twenty dive cents each, and
very quietly passed each an envelope
containing $2.50 and a small card on
which was printed : 'Give and you
shall receive.' 'Cast your bread up
on the waters and it shall be return
ed to you ten-fold.' 'llcmeruber the
example of Sir Orlando Matters on as
you journey through life.'
Sir Qrlano Matlcrson took 87.5 in
donation from the hoiue that night,
and it was noticeable that those whom
his cxamplo thus quickeno'l were
very careful that he should have
their correct address. The same re
sult followed iu each of tho scores of
hotels and sample-rooms which he
had initiated on the night before.
Tho third night he, with a solemn
face, returned to each donor of tho
previous night tho exact ten-fold
'It would be a joy which 1 would
consider cheaply purchased,' said In;
confidentially to a dozen gentlemen,
'if at tho cost of a half a million dol
lars I would teach the citizens of this
beautiful city to be thoroughly gen
orous to the poor.'
This night he was like the ticket
seller at tho railroad. One, two, live,
ten and even twenty dollar hills wore
shoved at him on all sides, so great
had been the awakening in the cause
of benevolence which the example of
Sir Orlando Maltersoh had aroused .
A benign smile hovered about his
mouth, and a tear that glittered be
times in his mihi, kind eye proclaim
ed tho joy his soul felt us he shoved
hill after hill into his pockets and
gazed with the look of a father upon
That, night Canada Bill -h >wc 1 up
to Beau Hick man something over
eighteen thousand dollar.*.
'We'll split her now,' suggested
Bill, as he ceased counting.
' Twouldn't give you 812,000,'
quoth Ilickman 'Lid il he till to
morrow night. I think I can raiso a
little "hush m niey" oh this racket.'
Next night Beau Llickmau wen*,

'Is that so V
'Sure. I Fere's the hook, with your

'Well, for gracious sake, Beau,

And scratch my name oil it, will
'Certainly,' returned llickmau,
scratching over the name with his
pencil; 'but Governor, I'm kind a
short to night. Couldn't you lend me

With a wry face tho victim would
pull forth his p ockct hook, and plac
ing the bill demanded in Hick man's
hand, would sli;> quietly from the
hotel to the street.
That night the two worthies divid

twelve thousand dollars.
Both Beau Ilickman and Ci had a

Gelting up with the Baby.
1I< >W Mil. JON KS DID II.
Mrs. Jones was not very well; baby
had had a course of measles, and
nursing and anxiety had almost worn
the little mother out. As they went
to bed, Mr. Jones, who was a loud
husband, said, "My dear, if there's
any getting up to night, I'm to do it,
mind. You just bo still?I can do
all that's needed just as well as you
'Do you think so, dear ?'queried
?Think '. I km v it. Women are
so conceited, they imagine nobody
can do anything but themselves.'
'Very well- I'll call you.'
The city clock had just struck one.
.Mrs. .I ones woke with the uoiso, and
heard baby breathing, as she thought,
in a disturbed and heavy way, as ho
lay in his little crib. Sho called
aloud to her spouse, who was vigor
'John, John !'
The snore went on more slronu
ously than before. She reached over
and gave his beard a hard jerk. The
half-developed snore evolved in a
moit, and Mr. Jones sprang up like
a night-capped Jack-in-the-box, and
rubbed his eyes in a bewildered
'What is it ? What is the matter !'
'Baby's sick, and wo must have a
light. The lamp and matches are
on the tuantlcpiccc,'and his loving
spouse sank under tho warm cover
ing, this time with a slight shiver at
the col 1.
Mr. Jones crawled slowdy out of
his warm berth, knocking over a
small stand by the bed side, which
held a pitcher of water, emptying the
ice cold contents on his bare foot and
night clothes. With a shiver and
groan ho Stepped on and over the
broken fragments, ran against a
chair which hold his coat and pants,
threw it over, knocking his watch out
of his coat pocket, whero he had care
lessly laid it, hi caking the crystal.
Next, a fearful clatter woke Mrs.
Jones from delightful dreams. lie
hud thrown down the tortga and
shovel on tho l.jiby'h china bath-tub,
chipping out some generous pioco3.
'My dear, what in the world are

will trot it.'
'Kasicr said than done,'he growl*
cd, tunning against a heavy book
c.'. -c. nearly knocking himself sense
It -s. 'I don't kt.ow where the bed is,
and my clothes are ice.'
'Here, called a sweet voice from tho
darkest corner of the room. After
knocking over all the toilet articles
ou the dressing table, and running
his hands?which he held out before
him that "he might seo better'"?
through the lace curtains of baby's
crib, making an irreparable rent?at
last he reached the bed. He sat
shivering on the .side of the bed, while
Mr. Jones slipped out of her downy
nest, slipped her little foot into a pair
of warm carpet slippers, and slipped
across the room to the olfeudiog
j lump, which was lit in a trice. She
came back to tho baby. He was
lying on his back, mouth open, snor
ing musically. No croup iu that
snore. She turned him over on his
side, kissed and (revered him up, then
attended to papa's frozen limbs by
getting him some dry clothes, and
covering him up?minus the kissing
j which perhaps accounted for his part

Somus arms again.
'To morrow night, I want the lamp
put where I can get it. A sensible
woman ought to know that the man

dear, henceforth I do the lamp light*
The Agricultural Society of Now
berry, at their meeting last week,
met the color question promptly and
fearlessly. Two colore I men applied
for admission to me rubcrsbip of the
Society. The Society, on motion of
Mr. Johnstonc, one of its members,
immediately adopted a resolution;
providing that they should be admit
ted to the privileges of membership
upon complying with the usual terms,
of admission. Those who are disposed
to think that the negro is "crowded
out" in South Carelina, will p'e&se
note this faet.
A Reto t Direct.?A clergyman*
Jrom u neighboring town and one of
his elderly parishioners, were walk
ing homo from church one icy day
last winter, when the old gentleman
slipped and fei 1 Hat on his back. Tho
minister, looking at him a moment,
and being assured ho was not much
hurt, said to him : "Friend, sinners
Bland on slippery places." The old
gentleman looked it} , as if to assure
himself of the laet, and raid, "I see
they do; but I lan't."
A Scotchman has trained a couple
of mice to turn a reel for twisting
twine. The laborers run about tea
miles a day, and reel from one hun
dred to one hundred and twenty
threads. A halfpenny's worth of oat*
meal lasts a mouse five weeks; the
dear annual profit on each animal
is computed at six shillings.
