We make tho following extract;
from a letter received a few days ago.
As the writer is a young gentleman
of fine ability and education, wo ap
preciate the compliment It} contains
very highly : "On the improved ap
pearance of the Clarion, every man
in Orangcburg county should* con
gratulate you, a3.it is the (list time
since the war that our county has
been favored with a purely Democrat
ic, decent and Yesp< ctablc paper."
The colored people of Abbeville
had an agricultural fair during Christ
mas week. So far as we know this
is the only county of tho State where
the colored people have been go en
terprising. Their example is worthy
of imitation, and,.whenever attempt
ed, should be encouraged. The col
ored race are essentially an agricul- j
tural people, and, adapted by nature
to this pursuit, they should avail
themselves of this great source of

We have received the-Prospectus of

Messrs. D. Jj. Alexander, J. C. R.
Taylor and P. E. Parmelee, to bear'
the above title. It will be Democrat

business details. The subscription
rates will be $6 a year, ar.d by the

gentlemen arc practical men, and we
wish them the success that such au
enterprise will entitle them to.
In consequence of the genera1 de
cline in almost everything we have
concluded to reduce the price of our
paper from ?2.00 to $1.50.pernn
num. It is our object to build up
a good and cheap family paper, one
that our people can take a prido jn,
and to this end we most cordially in
vite the supt.ort and co-operation of
all who are favorable to the estab
lishment of a straightoui Democratic

county needs rA good paper, ancf
With the help of her citizens we pro
pose to supply the deficiency.
Friday evening before Christmas,
Mr. Florence Glover, near Lewis
villc, aged thirty-two years, cutcred
his room, brushed his boots, neatly
dressed himself, lay upon the bed
and deliberately placing a pistol to
his right temple destroyed his own
life. This is the third instance, of
good citizens committing suicide in
that section of our county within the
past two months. Troubles of vari
ous kinds, glowing out of the events
of the score of years just passe.d, is
said to be the cause. Would that
this period was blotted out of our
history and memory.
Messrs. Mcllichanip & Edwards
announce that they have purchased
the Orangeburg Times, and in future
it will be published by them as a
Democratic paper. We see no reason
why too well conducted newspapers
in as large a county as this should
not succeed, and, after all, iL may be
best to have "two vents" to public
opinion." If the sale is a buna-fide
one, and we have no reason to doubt

At n meeting of the "Eastcrlin

Dec. 7th, 1878, the following resolu
tions were adopted and ordered pub

Tin-; Orangeburg Agricultural So
ciety met . at the Fair Building on
Saturday, before Christmas. Not
withstanding the very unfavorable
weather there was a lino turn out and
an interc'sting meeting. The policy
of planting cotton to the same extent
as heretofore was fully discussed by
the members present, and Hie conclu
sion arrived at was pretty generally
in favor of planting it only as a side
crop, while the fanner should address
himself to a more abundant yield of
grain, and other crops of necessity to
the subsistence of the family and the
raising of stock. It was adjudged
impossible to grow the crop profita
bly at seven and a half cents per
pound, ami absolutely .so as a money
crop to pay debts. Other avenues
should be entered and other sources
for making money should be sought
after by our people. Heretofore we
have depended too much upon cotton
in the vain hope of getting a remune
rative price and thus pay oir the
debts we owe, but year alter year dis
appointment have followed the farm
er, and the greater efforts he made to
grow cotton the faster debts accumu
lated upon him, until now nine-tenths
find it impossible to meet their pay
ments. If it wero not for dobts a
man might make cotton at the pre
sent prices and live comfortably, but
at its present value, and the poor
prospects. of 'improvement in prices,
be had better plant such crops as will
enable him to live within himsetf and
I the little he receives for cotton can
be appropriated to diminishing the
