They Get Up Again.
The Dcniccrut of hist Friday was
unusually refreshing, and has kept us
in a good humor the whole week. We
must therefore hasten to reciprocate
.?onie of the courtesies so graciously
It will be remembered that severa 1
weeks ago certain questions were
propounded to us in the columns of
that pii] er reflecting upon the edito
rial inuungencut of the Timks. We
took no ( t?n.se whatever at the en
quiries and insinuations, but set Lo
work in the liest, humor to answer
them and throw all the light wo
could on the subject. Wo stated
facts as we know them, but of course
we did not ask the cditcr of the
Democrat to boldjour pen. It seen.9
however that our answer is not satis
factory to our neighbor, and that we
must have bit Eomcwhere by the waj
the target shakes.
It is claimed liy the editor of the
Democrat that we "went out of our
way" in alluding to Bolivcr's pub
lished statement a year ago that he
paid the wages of the editor of tbe
Dtmocrut lor] editing for him last
year. I Jut in this we ditler with our
neighbor. The very iuterrogati ons
to us, to say nothing of the secret
whisperings which have reached our
ears, show that there was confusion
in the public mind as to who was
in alliance with Boliver, and as we
seemed to be accused, we t bougbt'it
proper to givo tho best light we kno.v
upon tbe subject, which was lioltvers
own statement, thinking that he must
know best whom he employs orpa)s.
We alluded to it as a mItter ol fact
ns uo denial of it had ever appeared .
At this late day bo never, nearly a
year afterwards, tbe editor of tbe
Democrat puts in a denial, asserting
that Gen. Izlar paid bis wages aud
not Boliver. Upon this Mr. Boliver
sends a card to tlw Democrat, pub
lished elsewhere, in which be reiter
ates bis statement of January last,
that he paid the wages of the editor
of tbe Democrat, giving the money to
Gen. Izlar, who paid it over to him,
declaring that (Jen. Izlar "cannot
and will not deny that it is true.''
Boliver furlbar states that the hinds
of the paper were never in tbe ban da
of tbe Court, and that "there never
was a moment from the time he
bought" the paper "to the time" he
"sold it, January 1st 1870, thai" he
"did not control its finance-." him
self, "receiving and paying out all
moneys nudj making all contracts.''
.No receiver was ever appointed in
tbe case, and Gen. Izlar was only the
Counsel both ol\ Boliver and tbe
c :itor of the Democrat.
IIcic^we.leave the matter with* the
public, as it concerns the people only
so far as it throws light upou tho
history of the past, and illumines tbe
pathway of the future.
Welcome now.to the second point
of attack in the Democrat, which was,
that we brought to the notice of the
public the fact that '.bat paper was
mortgaged to Alonzo Webster in
order to injure its jbiiainess. Our
best answer to this cbargo)of imp ro
priety is to quote what we did say,
which is as follows :
"To insinuate that the TlMKs, be
cause it was bought from George
Boliver, would in any way shield
him when he requires a blow, is as
unjust as to suppose that the ( Munge
burg Democrat would be untrue to
Democracy because it happens lo be
mortgaged totAlonzo Webster."
We therefore plainly said that it
was unjust to censure on this score. It
seems however, from the unusual tint ?
tcring, that tin* must have been a
tenelcr point with our neighbor. It
is a little singular that, our neighbor
was'not'so considerate ol us when it
allowed insinuations to go into its
columns, tho effect of which was to
lead tbe public to believe that we
were implicated with another Kadi*
Tbe third fittnek of the editor of
the Democrat t to use his own langu
age "only shows to what extent some
people will go in their wild attempts
to injure their neighbors." Jnhis
vain elibrls to implicate us in Radi
calism he catches at straws, atld jubi
lantly refers to our editorial ujiiiioi).
lion with the Clarion under T. C.
A ml re ws.
Il the editor of the Denvtcrat
would take the trouble to exam
ine our Democratic Club roll, bo
would fiii11 the name of 1\ C. An
drews signed in his own hand writing,
when he came up in the presence ot
many witnesses, repudiated his party,
and cast his fortunes with the Demo
cracy. It will be remembered too j
that in '76 he did effective work for
Hampton, carrying many votes for
us, and in '78 he wore the rod shirt,
working side by side with other
Democrats against. the Radical
knaves. Besides this he purchased
the printing material which he turn
ed over to Mr. Jas. 8. lleyward to
run a Democratic paper, and labored
faithfully as printer in getting it out.
He therefore cannot be placed poli
tically in the same category with
Boliverand the rcstof the "stalwarts'"
who have never repented, or turned
from the error of their ways. If wo
are to treat new converts in this way,
we don't see what will be the pros*
1 pect of increasing our ranks.
We thcrelore boldly and defiantly
reassert our declaration, that, "wo
have never edited for a Radical anil
But the editor of tho Democrat goes
further. He tries to make it appear
from the fact that the papers for the
printing material over the way were
made directly from Webster to the
present proprietors; of the "Demo
erat", thai Andrews'tenure was of a
doubtful naluic. It was right shrewd
ly put, and not thinking ol it. before,
knowing that Mr. Hcyward who con
ducted the Taxji'tyer was too honor
able a man to conduct it under a
doubtful tenure, we took the pains to
examine the records, und we find tho
papers are male between Mrs. H. M.
Andrews and Dr. Webster, and that
the tenure, so far a| wc are ablo to
judge, was just as giod as that by
which ihe present proprietors of the
Democrat now hold from D:. Web
ster. Of course as editor of th.."'
Clarion we hal nothing t> d> with
the title, but this cunning attempt to
bring us in contact with another
Radical falls to the ground as com
pletely as all the other wild ravings
of this air-beating editor.
The last attempt of the editor of
the Democrat is, to injure our busi
ness by publishing that "tho suit"
against the Timms "is still pending,
and no legal disposition can be mad e
until the Court decides who owns it."
.Now the best evidence of our
neighbor's disbelief in h.s ow.i
Blatemeut above quote 1 is r is
action last January in seeking
to buy the Timms to consolidate
with the Democrat in order to
j essess the whole field, anil have but
one paper in the County. The. whole
truth is, the so called suit against the
paper is all smoke, and never will
conic to any thing,and, the attempt ot
tho Democrat to make a scare-crow
out of it, is in perfect keeping w ill) all
the rest of the boasted "charity" of
this saintly editor.
Ths public need have no fears, and
our neighbors over the way may as
well moderate their rejoicings on this
head. ThcTlMKH is going ahead, ami
there will be no interruption.
JN'carly a year of our proprietorship
has passed, and we have every en
couragement tor the future. Our
largely augmented subscription list is
the best evidence of the public ap
proval of our conservative course.

The Governor's Message.
Gov. Simpson's message presente 1
to the General Assembly on Tuesday
contains some important suggestions
The stock law is touched upon, aud
highly commended in the Counties iu
w hich il has been put in operation,
and it is suggested to the wisdom of
the Legislature whether it miy not
be advisable to extend it to ths (Joan
ties in which it is not yet introduced .
The reprehensible habit of carry
ing concealed weapons is also justly
inveighed upon, ami a Strong app.wl is
made for the enforcement of existing
laws upon the subject, an 1 t'tu arms
ing of public opiuioa agiinstit.
Un the subject ot" finances the Gov
ernor makes an important recom
mendation, that the Cjunty C>m
missioners Report iu the various
Counties should be published in the
County papers just previous to the
sittings of the Court, and be examin
ed by the Court and Grand Jury,
instead!)!*, as now, by the Legislature.
A very important contrast is shown
between ihe Legislative expenses
under Radical rule in 187?, and the
Democratic in 1879 as follows:
Radirai (187?). 8351,000.
Democratic (1870;. $1*24 80?
Democratic saving. $226,200.
Upon the school question the Gov
ernor is very full and satisfactory.
On this point we give the following
short extract from his vainwlc mes
sage: ^ I
"A perfect school systenlnvould l)e
one. which, hy its own machine!y,
would bring into the school room all
the youths of the State between the
proper ages, and subject them for the
greater part of the year to the tuition
of thoroughly competent and pro
fessional teachers ?competent to in
struct and discipline tue min I as well
as develop and discipline the charact
er?this last being, in my judgment,
as important, if not more important,
than the first."
Speaking of the schools for the
colored race he says :
"The improvement in the schools
for the colored race has been marked.
It is worthy of note that since lfS7t>
the average increase of attendance of
colored pupils has beeu more Lhao 40
per cent, greater than under the Re
publican ad minis t rations."
There are many other points iu the
message upon which wo would like to
touch, but time and space forbids
this week. It is an excellent docu
ment, and will he of great benefit iu
guiding the counsels of our law uiak
If there is one characteristic of our
