A Happy New Year.
We send our greetings to (lie many
readers ol tbe Tjmks in this first issue
of 1880, and wish one und all "a
happy New Year."
It is well at the end of tho old
year to take our reckoning for the
past, and in the beginning of the now
tore-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 dees not consist in never
falling, but in rising every time we
fall. Adversity is good for us. It
makes men and v.< men of us. The
man whose life has been a never on 1
ing stream of prosperity, is never
??.vorth anything. As the furuauc in
rilics the gold, so adversity strength
ens and exalts human character, lie
who has felt the arrows of outrageous
fortune, and who makes his br ad by
hi-) brawny arm, is the true man, and
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
Hut it is not. our material progress
that should engage our best resolutions.
It is our advancement in those things
that make us hotter men and better
citizens. We must endeav r morj
to relieve the wants of the poor, and
to soften the pillow of.the afHietod; to
exercise a moic exalted spirit of
charity and tub ration toward those
?who differ with us; to forgive those
who injure us. and to feel a meatex
sense of our humility.
If at the end of tho 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.
'Ihe report of Col. Lipscomb, Su
perintendent of the Penitentiary, re
veals a nio.-t horrible state of things
in relation to the convicts hired to
the Greenwood it Augusta Railroad
Company last August., Hearing of
their ill treatment, Col. Lipscomb
und Dr. Trezcvant both went to the
spot to inspect for themselves, and
returned fully corroborating the truth
of the rumors. The pens of the con
victs were oll? nsively unclean, and
there was no comfort whatever for the
inmates. The pick were r.oi attended ,
and general sii.Hering prevailed to
B?ch an extent that out of 2S? con
victs assigned to this road, 114 died.

A very lull und cheeringstatement
of tlie material prospects of Orange
burg for 1880 appears in the NVmm
inn! Courier irom the pen of "QueL
tpiefois," the regular correspondent ol
that paper at this place, from which
we clip tho following ih encouraging
Now Years rending :
"In 1870 the change for tho better
came. Taxes were reduced, lawless
ness suppressed, peace was restored.
In 1S77 the prospects were better;
larger crops were planted and har
vested. Eighteen hundred and
seventy-eight, though a year off! nail
cial ruin at the North, found our far
niers weathering tho s'.orin, Tho
[last year, in its good crops, better
prices, and less outlay for phosphates
ami provisions, h is set them, as a
general thing, on firm grout) I. I in i y
safely say that the farmers of Or ?nge
burg nie out of the woods. .-V strong
disposition is manifested to establish
and en courage home industries, an I,
under the wise influence of their
?range ami agricultural associations,
lliey will nurse their savings for in
I vestments. The colored people are
in many cases making money or a l
(ling to their farms. In this small
tew u I know of thirty or more who
own snug farms and are doing well.
! In a word, there ia a vast change for
the hotter. Harmony exists; credit
j b easier; property has enhanced; i:n
migrants are delighted, and the dark
Jay of depression is exchange I for a
bright greeting of 1880, when a
stronger pull will be made to add to
the material wealth of our growing
Ex-President Grant passed through
Columbia yesterday on a special train
I for Florida. The Nn? ami (Courier's
I correspondent says : He was met at
(lie depot by the Mayor o.' the city, a
majority of the City Council, three
j Northern and two .Southern ladies,
j Collector Brayton, Cob Tom Sulli
j van, a mail agent on tbe Greenville
it Columbia Railroad, who served
under Gr. nt during the war, and
Mnj. Harry Noah, a revenue ollicer.
A crowd of negroes and a few young
white nun were at tbe depot, at

Mayor Stanley and Judges Willard
and Mackey met the Dictator at the

prepared for him at one of t he hotels
I but Ciesnr stammered out, "No, 1
think not. 1 .shall have lo go on."
After awhile the whistle blew, and
j the General was seen in the distuitce
waving his hat to the curious and
mongiol crowd of =ight seers.
The action oj the Mayor iu ten
deling lo Giant (he hospitalities ol

The Revolution i t Miin.i.
It seems that the Republican
teaching of Returning Hoard trick
ery is coming back upon that party,
(lov. Garcelon of Maine, iu ace >r 1

has sustained iho Returning Hoard
who have counted our. the R.'pub i

which we hope will open the eves of
the North to what we have to heir
down South without involution.
