? 7l' 'NOfifierii Humanity.
, Tlm^ responsibilities of the duties
<:i human life arc always modified bj'
the circumstances which surround
-men?tljc state of society and the
I light which they have to guide them
in their performance. The nuler the
^formcrnnd the more obscure the lat
ter, the more excusable arc the
irregularities and the less of crime in
human conduct; oh the other hand
the more refined and cultivated the
fofmcr and the more generally dif
fused the latterj the less excusable
, and the greater criminality of human
conduct. Judging from these modi
fying conditions of our actions we
? are. lead to conclude that people to
be greatest both as individuals and
public benefactors wlio do the largest
portion of public good according to
the shite of society in wlrch they
may be called upon to act. In the
Iude ages when light was but ecanti
y distributed, every principle of gen
uine viitue i e verted, and the human
mind locked up in ignorance, the
niost superstitious man was the great
est. AmoDg barbarians where neith
er law nor society is recognized, and
virtue and morality are unknown,
.the most cruel savage who
wields the heaviest tomahawk, or
counts his noble deeds of daring by
liie' greatest number ^of innocent
scalps, anrT- whose savage heart de
lights most? in the shvick3 of tire-dy
ing or the t stench of the dead, is the
greatest; So in a land of fr< edom
and an age characterized by light and
action?an age of science and art, of
civil and religions liberty, of popular
education, and of common and gener
*il improvement, that man is greatest,
? who, as a scholar, subdues the ele
rhents and'makes them subservient to
human will; or as a clliVen, plans
1 and executes the best scheme to di
minish crime and benefit civil socie
ty ; as an educator transfc rms the
rude oshlnr in the brain Of the child
to the magnificent genius to direct
States and bless his kind ; or as a re
ligionist,enthronC8 virtue in the hearts
' of men and thus exalts his being and
' makes him answer to the great pur
poses of his creation.
Such an age is the nineteenth cen
tury and such a land is essentially
the United States of America.
What are we to say, ic the light of
these propositions, of Northern IIu
roanity, when her education yields
such a brute as A. Webster, a Profcs
sor at Philadelphia, who murders
Parkman, and, to hide his savage
crime, cuts the flesh from the bones
and burns it; of its religion, which
tolerates Henry Ward Beeeher, of
, Brooklyn, lauds the man and magni
fies imaginary virtues to obscure the
enormity of his guilt; of its states
manship, which conceives und exe
cutes the Reconstruction Acts in the
South whereby the intelligence of
eight millions of American citizens
is put' under the domination of the
ignorance of four million African
slaves for political purposes?to per
petuate the power of a party which
wilhont it is a failure ; of its civiliza
tion, which hangs Benjamin Hunter
in Camdcn, N. J., whon in the act of
dying-?not only hangs him, but, in
their brutal haste to executo the mur
derous act, the .officers of the law
seize the rope to which the weight
is attached, pulling hard draw the
body several feet in the air and there
hold it until strangulation ends the
.unconscious man's life ; and of its hu
manity, when socioty oan brook the
brutality of these and other crimes
without making a single successful
effort to prevent them.
The enormity of any one of these
crimes is enough to damn an age ;
but their multiplication assigns the
people, though educated and profess
edly refined, among whom they arc
perpetrated, the highest position for
savage brutality in human society.
The question naturally* arises:
Who is to blame? Is the cause to
be found' in any one element of their
Bocretjvof education*, of religion, or
of the climated J& iV not the result
of a corrupt body, some of the limbs
of Which are healthy and sound
though tho body be diseased ; or is it
the mature fruit of a coriupt tree?
Were such crimes com milted at
the South and particularly in South
Carolins, a hundred news mongers or
political capital gatherers of the
Northern press would weave together
as many fabrics of shoddy morality
ami falsa humanity to poison the
heart of every good thinking mind
in New Eugland against the people
of the South ; yet. the brutality in
Benjamin Hunter's hanging finds ex
pression only iu a highly colored ar
ticle of the New York Sun and other
sheets.to pardon a vicious taste rath
er than condemnatory of tho act.
Who docs not thercforo tear for
Southern humanity when such a cor
rupt clement has been engrafted upon
it as that represented by the thousand
carpet-baggers and political cmisarics
who were busily engaged for eight or
ten years sowing the seeds of North
ern humanity in our Southern soil.
Already we see its fruit among us in
tho absolute impossibility of bringing
corrupt Radical officials to justice, in
the willingness of our peoplo to for
get and forgive the crimes of those
who used every effort to slander and
io plunder our citizens and to bring
ruin upon our society, and in the
doubtful propriety, to say tho least
of it, in many of our leading Demo
crats of pandering to leading Radi
cals because of their support or of a
questionable past connection with
them. Such is the case in many of
our counties to-day notwithstanding
the monuments of Radical trickery
are everywhere about us and express
their guilt as plaiuly as the hand
writing upon the wall. To keep our
citizens pure, all tho elements which
make up a correct civil society must
be fostered and cultivated by our
people. Our schools must be taught
and the chairs in colleges filled by our
own educated young men that our
youth, both white and colored, may
be properly instructed and such ele
ments cultivated an will give them a
just conception of the relation they
sustain to the State and to one an
Before the war. Presidential Elec
tors wero elected*^- the General As
scinhly of this State, so likewise were
the Governor, Lieutennnt-Governor,
Judges and chiefs of State Depart
ments, and never did a State enjoy a
better government, or was blessed
with officers of a higher order of tal
ent and purity of character than
South Carolina. Since the war the
election of these officers has been sub
milted to the people, and with the
change has been introduced a thous
and and one evils to corrupt society
and so vitiate the political life of our
people. Not the least among them
is the electioneering trickery which
divides our citizens and keeps them
divided, and which brings them in
contact with the moot corrupting in
fluences known in the catalogue o(
political crime: deception, persecu
tion, slander, bribery and even vul
gaiity. Familiarity with which can
not but corrupt the purest chnracter.
We do not desire to be charged with
the imputation of fogyism but con
fess wc would rejoice to see the good
and tirae-honored modes of ante-bel
lum days re-instituted here, Ala
bama has in part adopted them and
shows her wisdom in doing it, not so
much in freeing herself from Federal
influence on election occasions, bu
in seeking to protect her citizezs from
the corrupting influences incident
to exciting general elections. In
this State the Constitution provides
otherwise, hut every consideration of
policy as well as principle points out
the necessity of amendments to that
instrument, and the quicker those be
made, the belter for the honor of the
Stale, the purity of her citizens and
the prosperity of both.
A special dispatch to the News &
Courier from Columbia, under date of
January 22nd, says: "Governor
Hampton to-day revisited the State
House for the first time since his ac
cident. He sat for some timo in his
office, together with Governor Simp
son, and was then called upon by the
beads of departments and many other
gentlemen, who hastened to pay their
respects upon hearing of his presence
in town. lie has not yet fully recov
ered his strength, but is looking well,
and is surely, if slowly, improving."

Reply to Farmer.
Editors Orangeburg Democrat:
The writer, a farmer, whose arti
cle appeared iu the Democrat of
Jauuary 3d, is mistaken as to the
conclusions ariived at by the Agii
cultural Society at their meeting on
December 23d, 1878. I claim ?to be
a member of that body, and will say
that we did not counsel, as your cor
respondent said, to raise stock and
provisions to pay debts and to plant
a side crop of cotton, but wc did
advise the farmer (if mistaken I wish
to by corrected by sonic biolher mem
ber) to raise plentifully everything
needed for the real comfort and sub
sistance of their families and benefit
of their places, und then to make all
the cotton possible to pay debts.
Now, Mr. Farmer, you have the
conclusion of the Society, as I un
derstood it, in a nut-shell.
I find it not so difficult to know
what to do to run a place success
fully, as to know how to do it with
the proper will, energy and tact to
carry.it out. This last is the most
important as well as most difficult
" part. Now, Mr. Editor, I will give
you my views?why the advice of
the Srcioty is good and the manner
in which it may he carried out, more
or less successfully on a large, as
well as a small scale.
It is good because every article
produced whether for profit or con
sumption is low down and on a firm
er foundation. Money and specula
tion are lower, and all we have to do
in debt or out of debt, is to uurrow
down our habits and frugal wants to
the times, and always make before
wc spend or speculate. It can be
carried out because I know instances,
both on a small and a large scale,
where it has been done with success
even with all the past extrnvuganco
hanging around them ; 3'ct, at the
same time, I admit there arc more
failures than successes but the fault
lies in the management.
Your correspondent does not seem
to trust the Society in carrying out
its counsels. Wc do not pretend to
hold up to the country that we al
ways work to the best advantage;
I can cite the writer, however, to
many men both out and in this so
ciety, known to him, who have suc
I cceded, but because one succeeds and
I two fails he condemns all as failures.
The point, Mr. Editor, is not so much
to make, but to use what is inado to
Allow mo to go back to 'GG when
wc were left bankrupt by the war
with every thing iu confusion. From
tha' period to '77 we struggled un
der the most infamous and destruc -
tive government on earth, yet wc
soo thousands of money and other
values have passed through our peo
ple's bands nud to-day, in 1879, the
whole cry is poverty, want and ina
bility to pay debts.* What is the
cause of this si tic of things except,
rtmply,-?'waste of our lime,-** waste
)flabor and indulgences in social
extravagance that blinded our scnucs
md prevented us from laying: op for
i rainy day. Wo cannot bring back
die past, I will bluntly say, tberefore
\i> was our own fault?*our want of a
proper management/ Debts were
contracted when cotton was high and
the money wasted. Some, yes many
up to this time* have not paid up and
now cry out because cotton is down
to 7 or 8 cents per pound: "We
cannot pay debts." What strange
inconsistency, I can take a bale of
cotton at 8 cents per ponnd and buy
more than when it sold at 16 cents.
If one has tbo will, tho energy and
manages properly, I say a moderate
debt can be paid. I will suppose, or
?suggest, as an instance, a family of
a working man with wife and three or
four children 'paying a tax on ieul
estate and personal property, and
plantation necessaries worth $1,000
or $1,500, who has a debt of 8500
hanging over him. He wants to pay
the interest, 8100 on the principal, his
taxco and support tho family in a
healthy, not extravagant, condition.
Extravagance heretofore has swal
lowed up the earning that should
have gone to the payment of debts.
To do this, he should immediately do
away with all luxuries, cut loose
from all lime killing and extravagant
company outside of sociel neighborly
business, simply because the interest
of his family is dearer to him than
anything else. He should hire^thrce
hands beside himself at 360 each and
utilize his and their time to advan
tage, because time lost is money
thrown away. Like the slow drip
ping of water, it wears that away
which can never be ir? placed. The
proper employment of time is the
more necessary because careless and
speculative management brings on
accidents that generally cause ex
pense and often destroy the profits,
With this precaution, judicious man
agement, hard work and ordinary
lando.and seasons, he should make
twenty bales of cotton, four hundred
pounds each, 250 bushels of corn, 60
of oats, peas, rice, chuffas, potatoes,
fodder and turnips in propo rlion.
This, I aay would be an average
Now, Mr. Editor, let us see if he
can clear expanses and meet his pay
On the debit side he has.

On the credit side.
Twenty Bales Cotton.8 640 00
Turnips, potatoes and butter... 20 00
Total made.8660 00
Clear Profits.8200 00
This amount of clear profits will
more than meet his payments.
Now, Mr. Editor, another great
advantage such a man would have,
is the sympathy of the whols commu
nity, because every effort of his
shows a willingness and promptness
to pay up. But how, some will saj',
if he has no horse or real estate of
his own. Why, then he must rent
and manage the same way. He must
exerciso greater patience and perse
verance, economize more closely and
lime will work him right 4 times out
"A Farmer" does not seem to have
much faith in our Society carrying
out its advice. Ho imagines every
one is in the same fix, and that may
be, but he knows that does not justify
him in his inconsistency. He writes
as a member but I dont taink, if a
paying member, he attends often
enough to reap the benefits, and
therefore has go'ten himself into
trouble with cotton down. If I know
"A Farmer" and I think I do, ho
should not to-day complain of one
doiiar'8 debt. He got in and stayed
in by not managing as I have direc
ted after it was made. He finds now
there is no other chance but to make
save and pay out, and will plant a
both-side crop?right and left?to
make sure work. I trust he will
succeed and be able soon to enjoy
the pleasures of cash trade.
Our people have become accus
tomed to lieus and advances, and
have lost sight of the pleasure of a
cash trade. A Member of the

January 10,1879, YaraG., second daugh
ter of i>. C. and A. C Stoudenuilre, in
her ninth year.
Only three days before her death Vara
met and mingled in childish glee with
her young friends and companions at
school, and shared in the happy days
and joys, which are peculiar to the*
young, but suddenly she ceased to come
among us, '"turned and sought her
couch to lie down and die.''
Taught by pious parents from her in
fancy to "do good und eschew evil," she
exhibited, in a marked degree, many no
ble traits, which go to muke up true
character; prominent among which were
integrity of purpose, gentleness of dis
position, and kindness toward those with
whom she associated. Truly the ways
of Providence are mysterious, in calling
one to die, who promised so much. Yet
we bow In submission, and remember
that "it is sweet in childhood to give
back the spirit to its maker, ere the heart
bus growu familiar with the paths of
sin, and sown to garner up its bitter
fruit." To the afflicted parents there
comes the consoling recollection that
"She is not dead, but sleepeth,"
''Asleep in Jesus ! peaceful rest I
Whose waking Is supremely blest;
No fear?no woe shall dim that hour
