Again the Democratic party has
opened t he door of the party to the
colored people, and invited them to
come in and help to build up the
country and heiter their own condi

Saturday passed a resolution invit

A NEW I'NTKltL'ltlSE.
It was our pleasure on Wednesday,
through the courtesy of a friend who
furnished t he conveyam e, to visit t he
rice crop of Mr. ('. J. Stroinan on
Denn Swamp. This crop is eullivat
el entirely by water, which is a new
departure in agriculture in this sec
tion, being, from all accounts, the
tb'st attempt o!' the kind made in
Orangeburg (.'ounty, and promises, if
successful, which seems now beyond
cavil, to work a revolution in this
[ line, at least, of agriculture. It is,
J for this reason, a matter of public
interest, aud we have therefore visit
od t he fields for I he purpose of giving
the rea ler- of the TiMi-:s some ac
count of what is going on in their
midst, and encouraging the spirit of
enterprise among our fa run rs.
The rice fields we speak of are sit u
a ted" on the west side of Dean Swamp,
extending- from the public road,
about :i mile in length along I lie side
of the creek, and averaging in width
alum I :;imi yards. \\ e me told I hat
the land, before it was reclaimed,
would produce nothing- Mr. Stro
inau saw no reason why rice could
not lie cultivated here i:i the same
way as on our coast lauds. Iiis ideas
were thought by some to be vision:t ry,
hut he determined to make the ex peri
incut. Last year, or year before last,
he constructed the dams und docks,
und planted about one third of the
area now under cultivation: and the
, result was a complete success. Un
coil raged by thi<. he increased the
area, until he now has about lot)
acres in a splendid state of cultiva
tion, und at a comparatively small
cost for working and attention.
The original and entire cost of the
ilains. Hood gates, docks Are. amounts
to i?loOt)., which of course goes un
der the head of permanent improve
The crop now in the Held is good,
upon the lowest calculation, for 15000
bushels of rice, which tit $1,2.*) per
bushel will bring $7."><>o.. IK .luct
the cost of working, ?!???'>. and one
fifth of the cost of permanent improve
incuts $300, making total expenses
$S00, and there is !. !*: a (dear gain
of $0700, or nearly $ ifi, per acre
This scents to us to be more than
can he made per acre on any other
crop, and when it is considered how
many thousands of acre? of land
along our creeks an I river bottoms
can he th'i utilized, we see the im
port a nee of t lie i iepa rt uro.
Mr. Slronian gets the water to
cultiv ate his crop from his mill pond
on Dean Swamp, which is i<-d by a
main canal, along the higher part of
the rice Held. From this tuain canal,
and dam, perpendicular dams are
made across lo the dam on the creek,
the whole ground being thus cul up
into small squares of different eleva
tions which are all watered from
the main canal without any trouble,
and the rice kept in water to any
depth that may hei'eurod. The wal r
is changed or let oil'st any time by
means of waste gates lit the creek.
The system is simple and perfect,
and the cultivation easier und less
expensive than other crops.
Mr Stroman deserves a great deal
of credit for his enterprise and pluck,
and we hope that his experiment may
result in much good to our county,
lie iia^ also prepared 20t) her? s in an
other place :tl a considerable outlay,
which he expects to plan) another
year. Tlteonlv question i->. whether
the extensive cult i vat ion of I his a i t i

Tili: RADICAL CORPSE.
An attempt was made at Blnck
ville to resuscitate the corpse of
Radicalism on Tuesday. The
speakers were the old hacks, Whip
per, Smalls, Brayton, Tall and Col
lins. In point ol* numbers and
cntlisiasm the meeting was a failure.
Thcspcechs, be it said to their credit,
weif of a milder tone than usual.
The whites made no interference in
the meet i ng w ha I ever, ami free speech
was the order of the day. A big
dinner was expected, but tin* poor
fellows, many* of whom had walked
twenty miles, had to go home and fall
back on Democratic rations.
THE PRIMARY SYSTEM.
The "News and Courier" of last
Monday iu discussing the merits and
deinercts of the "primary" and "Con
vention" systems of nominations
"There is nint h to he said on hoth
sides of t bis question, but, if properly
conducted, under Wise restrictions,
the primaries seem lo us to lie the
fairest way of ascertaining the popu
lar will ami contributing to the real
st i rag I h of the party and the security
and w olfnre of t be State."
Tin1 subject was considered in
Oraiigohtirg sOme years ago. and
whether the decision was reached
upon the merits of the quest ion, or
upon t he popularity of the advocates
on one side or the other, or not, the
"primary system" was rejected by
the people, and the "Convention"
seems to be mil hxOd mooe ol
