THURSDAY, dEPT/. ,1881.
J. S. ALBERGOTTT.
B. Frank Slater,
G. W. Brunson,
I). E. Smoak,
The above ticket was nominated
by the Democratic party of the town,
and will be supported byr all Demo
crats who properly appreciate the
danger of division and boltiug in
their ranks. We can't believe that
a,ny of us will so early- forget the past,
and vote against the party that re
deemed the State. We must not
lose sight of the fact that a defeat of
the party at this time, aud at the
Comity seat, will have a most injur
ious effect upon the next political
campaign. We may talk as we
please about the matter not being a
political one; but it is, and we can't
shake it off. 11c who is not for us is
against us in this fight. But, aside
from the political question, the nomi
nees on the above '?ieket arc all in
every way acceptable. They are
enterprising, young and energetic,
and in every way suited to the neces
sities of our growing town.
Again, much is said about a citi
zens meeting, instead of a Democra
tic meeting to nominate candidates.
The fact is we believe it is all in a
name. The ticket nominated re pre
?cnts the citizens as well as Demo
crats, and we doubt not, if a citizen's
meeting had been called, if the result
would not have been very much the
same. The nominating meeting was
full and representative, of the best
citizens of Orangeburg, and the tick
et, as the fair expression of their will,
ought to be elected, and will be, it
every man floes his duty.
Storm ia Lharl: ston.
On Saturday, one of the "most terri
lie storms raged in Charleston that
has been known for a number of
years. White Point Garden was
completely submerged, and the Bat
tery broken by the power of the surf
in several places. Roofs were carried
away from some of the houses, and
trees and fences, ga'es and window
shtittersb token. OnSti'liva s Island a
number of bouses were undermined
from the action of the wind am', water
and left in a dangerous condition.
But the most serious and melancholy
incident of I he storm was the drown
ing of Mr. Thomas P. Lesesne, the
youngest son of Gl) ail eel lor Lesesne,
off the East Battery. He was the
book-keeper at the Hydraulic Cotton
Press, and, after paying off his hands
between six and seven o'clock on
Saturday evening, he went down to
the Battery in company with some
friends to witness the effects of the
storm. After getting there it was
proposed among the young men to
take a sea bath on the parapet of the
Battery by allowing the waves and
spray to dash over them. This amuse
ment was indulged in a long time,
.when suddenly it was noticed that
young Lesesne was missing. Upon
examination, it wss 'bum! that he
was struggling in the water below,
having evidently lallen from the rail
ings of the Battery. His companions
immediately procured a rope and en
deavored to save him, but. to no |. tii*
pose. In the llerceness of the storm
and darkness of the night w hich had
now approached, he could not be sen
and was soon lost and drowned in
the waters. He was a promising
young man, and the affair has cast a
gloom over the wdiole community.
Several other persons were report
ed, as drowned on the Islands around
ill "j'city. The storm has indeed been
a severe one to life and property.
The filoria Elsewhere.
The serious consequences, both to
ife and property, from the storm tlm
has jusf passed have been grcaic*
Jn Savannah the loss of property is
estimated at a half million of dollars.
Several houses and church steeples
have, blown down, and a number of
persons have been drowned or killed.
A house on the Savannah river near
the city was swept into the river and
all the inmates perished. Great de
struction has resulted from the level
ing of negro huts on the rice planta
tions. On TybeeIsland nearly every
house was greatly damaged or blown
down. One house was blown down
and caught afire, destroying most of
the inmates.' At Port Royal and
Bea:ii<ii\ t!., i-,^^, loiice wits the sinne
ami lives and property were lost;
Several houses were also destroyed at
Edingeville on Edisto Island. The
damage to shipping has been very 1
great at all the 6caports in the range
of the storm. It has indeed been a
trying time to the seaeoast.
In our last the prospect for the
recovery of the President was ex
tremely gloomy. We are glad to be
able to report to our readers that the
terrible relapse of iast week seems to
have been the turning point in his
case, and bright and well grounded
hopes are now indulged that he will
get well. He has rallied consider
ably; takes nourishment with relish,
and the latest is, that he is even get
ting off jokes on his poor wife. The
atmosphere around the White House
is now much happier and brighter.
We don't believe that a word is
necessary to our farmers upon the
importance of manfully aud prompt
ly meeting their obligations to the
merchants who have been assisting
them in their time of need. Any
other course would destroy the credit
of the farmer, would embarrass the
merchant and take awpy from him
the ability to help iu the future, aud
engulf the country in financial and
busiucss ruin. We kuow the far
mers have had a disastrous time and
we deeply sympathize with them, but
the only way to do is to be honest
nud square. Show by j-our actions
that you deserve help in the future.
Upon the colored people especially,
who have obtained advances in larger
numbers, we would impress this duty.
By every man coming up and meet
ing his obligations man to man,
whether between farmers, merchants,
mechanics or professional men, and
by the exercise of proper economy,
wc will be able to weather the storm
and come out all right in the near

A "stalwart" Republican assassi

other "stalwart" Republican, Gov.
Hawkins of Tennessee, proposes to
have his funeral before he is dead.
On Wednesday night of last week,
four burly negroes broke into a house
occupied by Ed Cherry and Mary

were beating Mary Jane, the others
were engaged on Ed., who happening
to be too sjLrong for them killed one

A writer truly saye, that there \8
nothing that wears away the braUl

whether he is writing at the time or

is imagined, and there is little or no
rest from his labors.
