Yt"e heartily endorse the sentiment
of the Palmetto Yeoman that in se
lecting our public officials it is a mis
take always to take up the Generals
and Colom Is in preference to the
private soldiers who fought in th-?
ranks. The Confederate army was
different from most of the armies of
Intelligence and worth hero were
not measured by rank. Men enlisted
not for mercenary purposes, but in
defence of all they held dear. There
were just as good and able men in
the ditches or keeping sentinel on the
picket post as in the military councils,
lnllueuce, fortuitous circumstance*
and accident often put the stripes on
the arms. Having gone through the

'Ihe agitatiou of the question just
now has the appearance of political
It is kuowu that Gen. Gary is
spoken of by some of the papers lor
Governor, and that Senator Hampton
and many prominent papers are op
posed to him.
The people are divided in opinion
as the merits of the controversy, and
the more that is written on each side
the more probably will the truth be
enveloped in mystery.
One thing is very certain, the State
and the Democratic party is more
important than either Senator Hamp
ton or Gen. Gary, and we would
thank them both if they would keep
their personal dilliculties to them
selves, and cease burdening the pub
lic with thorn.

of much comfort and gratification to
know that the latest combinations are
tending to tho prosperity of the old
"city by the sea." The prosperity of
Charleston is the prosperity of the
State. Every citizen of the State
feels an interest in her welfare, and
many of us are bound to her by
stronger ties than those of material
considerations. Her sons are scattered
everywhere, and howover s-parated,
their hearts throb for their venerable
mother. Her grand old history is
the pride of every South Carolinian
whose purest desire is that its future
pages should be as bright a-; its past
has been honorable. We trust the signs
of the times are correctly interpret

In answer to the persistent entrea
ties of his interviewer who sought him
out in his home in Edgefiehl, the
"Bald Eagle" speaks Substantially as
1. That many of the papers of the
United States had charged that Til
den and Hendricks had been sold out
b) Southern leaders, for the sake of
South Carolina, Louisiana and Flori
2. That Hampton submitted to
him the proposition to withdraw these
eleett r8 at the mass meeting iu Abbe
ville which he, Gary, ignored.
4. That this proposition was ilia?
cussed at a meeting held for the put
pose, at Mrs. Norwoods' residence,
at which meeting Hampton, Toombs,
McGowan, Cothran and others w ere
present That McGowan win not in
harmony with the rest. That these
facts arc corroborated by the state
ment of McGowan a:ul the admission
of Hampton himself.
?. That further the facts are cor
roboratcd by the appearance of Judge
Mackay ami Judge Cooke immedi
ately after this secret meeting at Mrs.
Norwoods', on the same platform with
the Dcmdcrnts, advocating tho* elec*
tion of Hayes and Wheeler, which, if
Hampton was true to Tilden, he
would never have permitied; nor
would he have written his letter to
Manton Marble, asking him to cut
loose from the Democratic party.
G. That thero is the folio wing ad
ditional proof of the charge: Hamp
ton's sending Judge Mackay to seo
Hayes at Columbus Ohio, which
Mackay avowed time and again to be
true; Hampton's advocacy of the
Hayes' Southern policy and travell

South with him; ami last Hampton's
advice to Col. Win. Wallace and Col.
Harrington, two ol the Tilden elec

Letter lrora tho Fork?A Murder!
Fork of Edihto, Jan. 27, '80.
Editor Orttngebwa Times:
On Saturday night last at the Mil
house pi ice a sf.rious and fatal row
occurred, in which a number of tur
pentine and farm hands were engag
ed. It seems l hat on that uig 111 a
party was given at the above placo
by some colored folks, and it was that
which drew ihe crowd together. And
while playing ?hat is known in coun
try parlance as "steal partners," a
dusky Lothario snatched an ebony
damsel from a laborer on Kxom's
turpentine farm, at which the latter
became enraged, and drawing bis
knife said, "You d?n a?o? b?,
you stole my partner," and went at
once to cutting his supposed rival.
As soon, however, as the colored man
thus endangered realized his sittta- j
lion, lie adopted Shakespeaie'. coup

but the hope lu re held out was not
realized in this instance. Death fol
lowed close thu first stab given. As
the wounded man was climbing a
fence about twenty or thirty yards
from the house in which the frolic
took place, with the hope of making
good his escape, he was hit in th c
back of the head with two pistol
balls, producing almost immediate
death. It seetus as> he left the house
ten or twelve turpentine hands pur
sued him, with what purpose the ae
qual proved. But the Bhooting of
the man to death was not all. After
life was extinct, the infuriated mob, I
understand, fired ten or twelve balls
into his dead body.
Six of the guilty culprits have been
a:rested, and while I write this all
aie uudergi iug an examination before
Trial Justice lOlmoy. The well dis
posed colored people of the community
arc \ery iudgnuut at the outrage,
and a number of them were heard to

There is a great cry for farm
laborers. The rise in the price of
cotton accounts in a groat measure
tin- the increased demand, fhere has
been no exodus, and yet farmers liml
great difficulty in getting bauds. The
deficiency in the supply seems to be
greater, and tho demand larger than
for seveial years. The system of
renting lands ha.s destroyed the
availability ol a great portion of the
labor, while the young men who are
marrying and settling to themselves
every year increase the demand.
Wages are twenty per cent, higher
than last year.
Mules and horses are also in great
demand, and the West is reaping a
good harvest in ihe sale of stock in
this and (ho adjoining County of
Barnwell. Every man who made
one blade of grass grow last year
wants to make two blades grow this
year whero one grew before. The
littlo advance in the price of cotton
has turned tho planters topsy-turvy.
A large number of mules and horses
have been sold on time, und a decline
to eight cents per poun I for cotton
noxt season will leave many in tho
lurch. The corn to lecd this stock
with will also have to be imported.
Some farmers are buying corn al
ready. Mules, corn, bacon, and Hour
on credit, with a prospective high
price for cotton is tho way the aver
age South Carolina farmer gets rich.
In France such riches arc called
Chateaux en Etpayne.
