A Happy Wew Year.
We send our greetings to iho ninny
readers ol the TlMKS in this first issue
of 1880, and wish one and all "a
happy New Year."
It is well at tho end of the old
year to lake our reckoning for the
past, and in the. beginning of the new
to re-dedicate out selves to the duties
of life, and to resolve, with help from
above, that we will become better
men and women. If, in reviewing
the past, we are not satisfied with our
progress, it is useless to despond.
True worth th is not consist in never
fulling, but in rising every time We
fall. Adversity is good for us. 1;
makes men ami w< men of us. The
man whose life has been a never on I
ing stream of prosperity, is never
worth anything. As the furnace [> I
rifies the gold, so adversity strength
ens and exalts human character. Lie
who has felt ti e arrows of outrageous
fortune, aud who makes his br ad by
hi? brawny arm, is the true man, an l
not the child of fortune, reposing in
his purple elegance and consuming
what Others have made for him.
If in our journey we sometimes
flip backward, we must press forward
But it is not our material progress
that should engage our best resolutions.
It is our advancement in those things
that make us bolter men and better
citizens. We must endeav r niorj
to relieve the wants of tho poor, and
to soften the pillow of.the afllicted; tu
excrciao a nioic exalted spirit of
charity and tob ration toward those
who difler with us; to forgive those
who injure us, and to feel a tricater
sense of our humility.
If at the cud of the yea r we can
feel that we have advanced in such
things, it will indeed prove to us "a
happy New Year."
An Outrageous Shame.

their ill treatment, Col. Lipscomb
und Dr. Trezcvant both wen* to the
spot to inspect for themselves, and
returned fully corrol orating the truth
of the rumors- The pens of the con

there was no comfort whatever for the
inmates. The sick were ::ot attended ,
and general suffering prevailed to
such an extent that out of 2s? con
victs assigned to this road, 11 1 died.

/? very I til 1 and cheering statement
of the material prospects of Orange
burg fur 1880 appears in tin- Nnr.
inn! ('??uric- trom the pen of "Quel
quofois," the regular correspondent ol
that paper at this place, from which
we clip the following as encouraging
New Years reading :
"In liSTd the change for the better
came. Taxes were reduced, lawless
ness suppressed, peace was restored.
In 1877 the prospects were better;
larger crops were planted and har
vested. Kighteeu hundred and
seventy-eight, though a year of finan
cial ruin at the North, found our far
mere weathering tho s'.orni. Tie;
past year, in its good crops, better
prices, and less outlay for phosphates
and provision-;, has set them, as a
general thing, on firm groun I. I in iy
safely say that the farmers of Or i ijgo
burg are out of the woods. A. strong
disposition is manifested to establish
and en courage home industries, an 1,
tinder the wise influence of their
Grange and agricultural associations,
they will nurse their savings for in
vestments. The colored pc >plo are
in many cases making money or a l
ding to their farms. In this small
town I know of thirty or more who
own snug farms and are doing well.
In a word, there is a vast change for
the belter. Harmony exists; credit
is easier; property has enhanced; im
migrants are delighted; and the dark
day of depression is exchange 1 for a

Ex President Grant passed through
Columbia yesterday on a special train
for Florida. The N<om anil (Courier's
correspondent says : He was met at
the depot by the Mayor o! the city, a
majority of the City Council, three
Northern and two .Southern holies,
Collector Bruyton, Col. Tom Sulli
van, a mail agent on the Greenville
j Columbia Kail road, who served
under Gr. nt during the war, and
Mnj. Hurry Noah, a revenue oflicer.
A crowd of negroes and a few young

Mayor Stanley ami Judges Willard
and Muckey met the Dictator at the
cars, anil invited him to a co Hat inn
prepared for him at one of t he hole's
but Ctesar stammered out, "No, 1
think not. 1 shall have to yo on."
Afler awhile the whistle blew, and
the General was seen in the distance
waving his hat to the curious and
inongtel crowd of sight seers.
The action ij the Mayor in ten
dering to Giant the hospitalities of
the town is generally disapproved.
The Revolution i t Miiru.
It seems that the Republican
teaching of Returning Board trick
cry in coming back upon that party.
Gov. Garcelon of Maine, in accord
ance with law and the constitution,
has sustained the Returning Board
who have Co a tiled our. the B-pubi
c.in majorities and counted in the
Democrats. The consequence is that
the Bepublicans are up in rehel'iun<
and the Govjrhor is hound to main

wl.it h we hope w ill open the eyes of
the North to what we have to bear
down South without revolution.
