The committee on fertilizers sub
quitted the following report, winch
was taken up and adopted seriatim :
Your committee to whom was re
ferred memorials and rcoolulions
from Subordinate Granges in regard
to fertilizers, beg leave to report:
1st. That the State Grange solemn
ly and earnestly remonstrate against
the wrong in advancing tue price of
fertilizers, which is an article of com
mon use, and just after the adjourn
ment ot the .State Legislature.
. 2d. That we intend neither hostili
ty nor combination against the man
ufacturers of fertilizers to impose any
damage upon them, but simply to ex
press our mature conviction against a
common oppression, so ruinous to
the vital interests of the eutire State.
3d. That we advise our Pomona
and Sudordinate Granges to take im
mediate action, through their sepa
rate executive committees, upon this
?ubject, which will? present light will
accomplish all we desire.
4lh. Th; t the delegates present
will immediately advise their respec
live Granges of the information ob
lainrd at this meeting, so as to facili
1ale the perfecting of all arrange
ments necessary for relief.
5th. That the action of the State
Grange on this whole mutter, and all
actions, communicatio* 8 and corre
spondence of Patrons, Granges, Sub
ordinate Or Pomona, also of all au
thorized agents, are to bo strictly
confidential and under the strictest
bonds of secrecy, in accordance witli
"obligations of our Order," and un
-derseal. % J
6th. That the report of Bro'. Feld
er be received, approved and spread
? upon our minutes, and the thanks of
this State Grange be returned to him
for his valuable counsel, and we also
earnestly commend hiin to the pat
ronage of our Order.
The above is the full text of the
resolutions adopted by the Slate
Grange at a meeting held in Charles
ton last week.
It is not unnatural that complamts
should arise from the planters when
the price of uu article, which they
have regarded as almost indispensa
ble to the successful management of
their farms-, is advanced. But whence
t-he necessity for such action as has
been taken in several counties of this
Stale, or what benefits are to be ob"
taincd we utterly fail to discover. If
the manufacturers of commercial fer
tilizers are determined, by concert of
action, to demand a given price for
their matures, it is evident there arc
but two plans for tho farmers to adopt,
either pay the price or let the fertil
. It has been demonstrated conclu
sively by practical agriculturists that
. Ahe highest degree of fertility may be
artificially induced as well by the uee
of compost manures as by the use of
guanos, and by some it is maintained
that lands strengthened by the use of
%))t former, retain their fertility for a
longer period than those upon which
the latter have been used, if this be
true and we do not doubt but it is, it
is a bit of information which Our
planters would do well to avail them
Balves of in this conflict with the fer
Our forests arc abundantly strewn
with leaves and straw, they border]
nearly every field and may ho hauled

The press nil over the land is teem
ing with advice to the farmer to phint
less cotton, make more corn, improve
lands by plowing in peas and the use
of compost manures. Experience,
dearly bought, has convinced many
that there ia no profit in growing cot
ton at tho present prices and yet
there are but few who turn their ex
perience to good account. Why this
tardiness to learn the cost of produc
tion we cannot understand. We
hope that thoy will now awake to the
importance of doing something to
protect and advance their interest,
and thut something, in our opinion,
is to let commercial manures severely
alone, and produce in great abun
danco those things which are needed

Senator IV?. C. Butler's Seat.
The Committee on Elections in the
United States Senate by a majority
eport decided that 1). T. Corbin was
dectcd a Senator from South Caro
inn to the United States Congress in
December, 1870, and is entitled l<
have the oath of olllco administered
to him. Tho minority, Democrats,
take directly opposite grounds and
bnsu their report upon the fact that
Senator Butler wns elected by the
legally constituted Legislature of the
The issues involved in this elec
tion were thoroughly discussed in
open Senate during lust November,
and that body, after elaborate de
bate, determined that Gen. Butler
was the legal Senator, and, accord*
'"^ly, w'is sworn in as Senator for
ihe time in question. The majority
report of tho committee, made by
Republicans, culls upon the Senate to
re-vote and undo its previous action,
a requirement never heretofore re
cognized by any legislative body,
and if persisted in will revolutionize
established precedence in such cases.
Senator Blninc", who is more of a poli
cy monger than a statesman, sees the
issues involved in this measure and
declares he will not vote to unseat
Senator Butler. Senator Edmunds
is ,believed lojbe of the same opin
ion, and will make every eh*brt to de
feat tho measure.
The course Mr. Blainc will pursue
is based upon his belief that the con
summation of such a measure, in its
re-action, would be more disastrous
to the Republican parly thau to the
Democratic in the future. At uo dis
tant day the Democratic party will
be in complete control of the Senate,
and if this report be adopted Kellogg
and a few other worthies ma}' expect
decapitation without mere}', and the
Republicans know it.
Our Next Fair.
On our first page will be found the
full pioceedings of the annual meet
ing of the Ornngeburg Agricultural
and Mechanical Association, held at
the Fair Building on Saturday last.
These show that discouragements ex
ist among some of the members even
to the extent of selling the property
and abandoning an enterprise which
has had- more to do in moulding the
character of the Orangeburg farmer,
and advancing his interest to a satis
factory success than any other, in the
same time, could possibly accom
plish. There is no doubt that luke
warinness on the part of stockholders
is at the bottom of the whole matter.
A few enterprising persons have
worked faithfully and earnestly so
long until their zeal has given place
lo discouragement, and the scccess
attained does not seem to them com
mensurate with the labor expended.
Were the enterprise abandoned
now, uli that past successes have ac
complished will go for naught, and
tho Association would bo in a worse
condition than if they had never en
tered upon the work. To sell now
would be to sacrifice the property,
and to abandon the Fairs would be
to ignore the value of a three days
exhibition of mechanical and agri
cultural skill, worth, more. to the
farmers of Ihe county than the value
of the euiire properly. Besides the
Instruction imparted and the spirit
of a worthy emulation instilled dur
ring this period of social intercourse,
is worth to every industrial interest
more than the trouble nnd expense
Let the Fairs by continued and
every stockholders determine lo olfer
oppisilion no longer to its succesVby
a careless indifference, but use every
effort by contribution and palrpnago
lo make it a living enterprise, and
success is assured.

Hon. Samuel J. Tilden.
During the examination of Manton
Marblo beforo the Potter investiga
ting committee, a note wns received
from Mr. Tilden requesting that an
opportunity be afforded him of ap
pearing before its members to submit
testimony pertinent to the matters
then in hand. Accordingly, a few
days later, the victim of Republican
fraud appeared In company with his
brother, apparently deeply impressed
with the solemnity of the occasion.
Mr. Tilden occupied the earnest at
tention of tho committee for more
than two hours, whilo in a quiet,
calm, dignified and at times in a sub
lime manner, he protested his inno
cence ol all knowledge of the cipher
dispatches. The room in which the
committee held its sessions was full
to overflowing with anxious specta
tors, and tho fervor of the speaker's
zeal often elicited outbursts of ap
plause, showing that their sympathies
were entirely in his favor. Even the
Republican members, who were met
cilcss in their treatment of other
Doinocrntlh witnesses, treated him
with marked consideration in their
cross-examination. Air. Tilden was
armed with Justice and truth?eiTec
tivo wenpons in the hands of honesty
against siandef and fraud.- The
victory may bo one of time, "bnt it is

France is again in a slate of resolu
tion. No country in all Europe can
number more somersaults than this ec*
centric people. Her history is full of
them ranging from those terriblo up
heavals which deluged the land in the
blood of her citiacns to those petty
differences which often effect more
than their importance would warrant.
The Franco-Prussian wnr unseated
the Emperor and inaugurated Ahe Re
public over which M. Thiers presided
with changing fortune not unbooked
for from a people just emerged from
despotism. Dissatisfied with the
fickleness of bis countrymen, this
able ofilecr voluntarily surrendered
the Presidential chair. To succeed
him Marshall MclMuhon was elected
with the pledge of serving the Repub
lic for a term of seven years. Unsta
ble himself, his re-actionary course
kept France in a constant turmoil,
until the necessities of the nation
forced his resignation. His succes
sor was chosen a few weeks since and
the troubled spirits of the Frenchmen
arc subsiding under the promiso of
the new President's past history. A
veteran politician, and opponent of
socialism as well as of Bonapartisin,
AI. Jules Paul Grevy's Republican
policy.may be so consistent and effec
tive as to put France on the road to
political prosperity as a Republican

Grant's Welcomo Home.
It is understood that Messrs. Ba
ker and Childs, of Philadelphia, and
the "Sweet Singer" of Michigan, are
competing for a prize offered by
Messrs. Belknnp, McKee and others,
for the poetical welcomo to Grant.
The following extract from Mr. Gco.
Washington Child's offering has the
true ring, and exhales the genuine
flavor. It is to be sung as a duet by
Belknnp and McKce:
"Oh! welcome home, thou might}* chief;
Permit ench pardoned whiskey thief,
Who but for thee, had died in grief,
To meet und greet thee on the'strand,
And proudly lake tln-e by the bund.
Thrice welaouiu to thy native laud!"
Sam Lee, the unscrupulous agita
tor and Radical Ore eater, of Sumtcr,
has at last come to grief. At the last
court held at Surater, Judge Mackey
presiding, a true bill was found
against him for oilicial misconduct,
and the case was tried before a jury
composed of eight white and four
colored men, which, after two hours
absence, returned a verdict of guilty.
Lee could not be found, bu' Judge
Mackey decided that a party, evading
arrest to avoid trial, may be tried in

Commercial Fertilizers end Cotton,
Will the high-priced fertilizers pay
with cotton at 8 cents per pound?
I answcY no. Will the continual ap
plication of commorcial fertilizers to
our thin sandy soil, planted in cot
ton without rotation of crops, materi
ally enhance the product of cotton or
improve tho soil? I answer from sad
experience of ten or fifteen years, no.
Why will farmers persistently con
tinue to apply them to cottou when
tho rcsilrHr-will evidently be to their
injury? I answer, they arc decep
tive. They give the cotton a vigor
ous start, and a llattering promise in
May and June, and if there is not
plant food otherwise in the soil the
inevitable, result is rust or shedding.
I saw in the editorial column of the
Charleston News and Courier an ex
tract from the Darlington Njws about
these fertilizers. I adopt his words
as true and good ns far as cotton is
the crop. These are his words: "At
the commencement of the-new year
we again warn our farmers against
the improvident use of commercial
fertilizers. We do not aay that there
is no profit in the judicious use of
them on soils already euriched by
home-imnle manures, but we no say
that their customary application to
our thin soiled and worn-out old
fields is tho main cause of the pover
ty and. insolvency of our farmers.
They are meant to stimulate fertile
lands. Thoy cannot make soil. The
temporary stimulus they give to a
thin soil only hastens the utter cx
hauolion of its plant growing proper
ties." The editor of the Charleston
hews and Courier pitches into him,
and says: "The commercial fertiliz
ers to-day are the product of the
chemical skill of the age and contain
all the essential elements of phut
life; such as phosphoric acid, potash,
lime, magnesia, sulphuric acid and
ammonia. It is a fuct well-known aud
easy of experimental demonstration
that a judicious use of the fertilizers as
at present prepared, healthy plants
can be grown on absolute sand." He
further says that "the old Peruvian
guano is .open to the objection urged
by tho writers." Hero are two edi
tors writing upon a subject of
which neither has any experimental
knowledge. The Darlington News
says he expresses the views of the
intelligent farmer. The Charleston
Newa and Courier expresses the
views of the scientific men of the
present age. Which are we to be
lieve? If the commercial fertilizers
contain phosphoric acid, potash,
lime, magnesia aud ammonia in prop
er proportions it could not fail lo im
prove the soil and produce remunera
tive crops. I know no intelligent
farmer who acknowledges that the
commercial fertilizers used by itself
improve his sandy laud cultivated
with cotton. I have applied it, 200
pounds per acre, for live years in suc
cession. Result: first year 800 pounds
seed cotton ; last year 351 pounds per
acre. I have used it on new lands
upon which pea vines have been left
to rot witli good results. It has paid
tnc handsomely combined with slublc
manure, cotton seed and Peruvian
From my experience I am forced
to believe that the manufacturers of
theso fertilizers do not put in ammon
ia enough. I have heard it said that
they make the ammonia out of one
house cot bofllcc for three tons. The
editor of the Charleston News and
Courier says that the old Peruvian
guano is open to the objection of the
writer. I ? deny this. The old Pe
ruvian guano has proven to he a
powerful fertilizer for all agricultural
products in every soil and climate.
Enough for this time.
I may write on this subject again,
and show how wc may improve our
land by tho use of commercial ferti
lizers. J. C. H.
