All the questions discussed during
the extra session of Congress seem to
have found their proper political lev
el, and will not he disturbed save by
pedagogues until the opening of the
next campaign by the great political
parties, except tho .Silver question
which la of so gieat importance as to
excite much iutercst among the
speakers and writers of the present
day. Because of the prominence giv
en Lids qucBtiou wo propose to give a
statcmcut of the facts of chief inter
est involved in it.
At the beginning of tlie govern
ment our legislators very wisely
adopted a metallic standard of values,
and silver and gold were used for
this purpose, with a dollar as the
unit of., value whether gold or silver.
A coircct silver dollar contained
412 1-2 grains of that metal and a
coriectgold dollar conUaipcd 27 grains
<i( gold?the proportion between the
two was about fifteen to one. It was
afterwards ascertained that by the
French, Government, with which we
occupied more intimate relations than
any other of Europe, the value
of silver to gold, was fifteen and a
_biuXto>o?e.?Thia proved that-the un
coined value of the two,metals in the
United States was not the same, that
a gold dollar was worth more than a
silver dollar and that it was necessa
ry to make them equal. In 1831 gold
was reduced to 2f>.8 grains which was
about sixteen to , one, and a silver
dollar was consequently worth more
than a gold dollar. This proved the
French proportion more nearly cor
rect and it was adopted.
Ever since 17?2 these metals made
the legal money of the United States
and the free coinage of hoth was pro
vided for by law. Mints were loca
ted where citizens possessing either
gold or silver in mass could have it
coined free. So stood our silver
and gold dollar until after the war.
In 187C silver was demonetized and
the gold dollar remained the unit of
value. Its ficc coinage was prohibit
ed und it was pronounqed by law no
longer a legal-tender. In the mean
lime a very important trade sprung
up between the United States anil
China, and our merchants on the Pa
cific coast were forced to buy Spanish
? and Mexican dollars at 8 per cent, to
meet the demand of the trade. To
remedy this evil, by an act of Con
gress, the Secretary of tho Treasury
was* ordered to purchase silver in
mans and coin a dollar containing 420
grains of Standard silver to be known
as tho "trade dollar," and one year
afterwards these trade dollars were
made a legal tender in sums of 85.00.
Jiy the law Lhiity-six million of these
dollars weie coined. Two years later
their character as legal tender was
destroyed, and by law their coinage
left to the judgment of the Secretary
of the Treasury who forthwith caused
it to cense.
After the silver mines of Nevada
and Colorado bad been discovered
and put in operation, the old silver
dollar was again remonctized and
made a legal tender. The Secretary
of the Treasury was ordered to pur
chase bullion and to coin a large
number of dollars bearing the stand .
aid weight of 412 1-2 grains. At the
late extra session of Congress it waa
ascertained that a ucass of silver
weighing only 412 1-2 grains brought
in the maikct only 85 cents, therefore
to isBtie such a dollar was to issue a
fraudulent dollar. To correct this
evil a-bill was introduced to equalize
the money value of gold and silver
and to do so as soon as the European
nations which had demonetized silver
might rcmonctizc it.
The metallic money question, there-1
fore, before the country nt the present!
Umo seems to bo Ibis : Whether we
shall make tho .money value of silver
and gold precisely equal, or adberc
to tl^u old standard dollars of 412 1-2
grains to the'doFlar of silver and 25.8
grains to the dollar of geld. The
latter has always varied from 1792 to
the present, from 2 to 3 per cent.
Whether this question is of sulli
clcnt moment to become an issuo be
tween the contending parties, and to
be made so by the National Demo
cratic platform is a matter involving
grave doubts. If it be not made,
there will be no issue to divide the
people save the great constitutional
questions discussed at the extra ses
siou of Congress, and the larger por
tion of the Grcenbackcrs will unite
with the Democrats and together win
an easy victory for an honest govern
incut und equal right to be adminis
tered by Democratic otlluiajs; on the
other hand, if it he made, the majori
ty of the Greenbackers will join the
Kadicals to defeat the hard money
policy. This seems to us to be the
proper outlook and it needs but a
glance to discover the better policy
for the Democracy.
? i ii -
The Ohio Contest.
The contest between the contend
ing pnrties in Ohio is rising in impor
tance and interest not only in that
Stato and its associates of the West
but is assuming a national impor
tance attached heretofore to few
State elections. In Maine, Blaine is
stumping the Stale, and other speak
ers, both Democratic and Radical,
are add'ng their mile to tho excite
ment which had its origin in a split
of the Radical party. In Ohio, how
ever, the battle to be fought in next
October is for our entire people.
Gicat political questions are to be
determined ; the fundamental princi
pic of a fair jury, an honest ballot,
and protection from tho oppression
of class legislation, make up tho issues
involved in this struggle, and to pre
serve and perpetuate which the talent
of the whole country from both par
ties have been called into requisition.
The fight therefore is to be hotly con
tested ; every national bank at the
North and West stands at U12 back
of the Republican party, and all the
olliclals in the Executive department
of the government will lend their aid
and intlueuce, knowing that the next
Presidential election in 1880 hangs
upon this battle to be fought in Ohio
iu October .nex,L__. OnJjie part_ofl Jthe
Democracy we enter the field with
equal determination to succeed?to
' win a position that will enable the
party to lead the way next year to a
glorious national victory.
Tbe icsult of tbis contest doubtless
will go far to shape the political plat
form for the coming Presidential cam
paign which should be done before
the individual States do anything.
It must be fought on national princi
ples not Stale issues ; and our people
will do well to address themselvcss
and to devote their time to the im
provement of their condition and the
building up of their fortune.
A Monstrous Wrong.
We sec by the Ntios and Courier
of yesterday's issuo that certain par
ties in Charleston, holders of first
mortgages on railroad lands in and
near Uranehville, have notified land
owners of that town that they are
about to institute measures to assert
and defend their right to auch proper
ty. Who is to blame we know not,
but there has been a monstrous
wrong perpetrated on innocent citi
zens by a corporation, some members
of which certainly knew of the wrong
when it was committed. Surely there
must be somo redress in the law?
somo way of protecting our honest
citizens in the enjoyment of property
fur which they paid its full value in
money. If corporations have the
power to commit such frauds who is
safe from their tyranny and aggres
sion? The individual members of
the company or stockholders ought to
bo held responsible for the acts of
their agents. Let tboso interested
t?Bt the matter.

Hon. Jefferson Davis,
Every Southern heart will rejoice
to know that this patriot and hero of
a lost causo has at last, by the mu
nificence of a friend, been put above
want and care as to his short future
on earth. Mrs. Sarah A. Dorscy, a
rich lady of Mississippi, in testimony
of her appreciation of his services to
the lalo Confederacy which she loved,
and as a tributo to his devotion to its
cause, bequeathed her entire property
consisting of two plantations and a
delightful home residence to Jefferson
DaviH, ex-President of the Confeder
ate States. Mr. Davis }s now in re
tirement at this home, engaged in
writing a truthful history of the Con
federacy at the head of which ho
stood, and it is n source of gratifica
tion to know that this work can be
prosecuted to its completion without
four of interruption.
Notwithstanding the unfavorable
aspect of the weather wo started on
Saturday rooming in company with
out'worthy County Auditor; Col. D.
K. Burton, whose kindness furnished
tho vehicle, for Cattle Creek Camp
Ground. A drive of three hours,
mado delightful by promising crops
and comfortable homes at convenient
intervals along the road,.brought us
to the Camp Ground in duo time for
the first morning service. Tho farm
of George Garvin, a colored man, de
serves .special notice in this connec
tion, because of the general appear
ance of thrift so unusual for farmers
of his race. We notice here more
than ordinary interest manifested by
ihc proprietor in tho appointments of
his home, success of his furm and
commendable economy in its general
management, and the success attend
ing his labors should be a source of
encouragement to others of bis color,
similarly situated. Tho crops, with
a few exceptions only, arc good and
will doubtless meet the expectations
of the owners. We learn, however,
that the drought has been disastrous
in its effects upon the crops about
tho Camp Ground and, indeed,
throughout the Branchvillc section,
cutting the cotton short lull one-half
and corn probably more. The farm
ers, however, true to the magnanimi
ty of their natures are not discourag
ed, but in hope8of a more prosperous
future, will enter immediately upon
preparations for another year.
After seeing our nag properly cared
for (and she deserved it,) ourselves
refreshed by the generous hospitality
of our mutual friend, Mr. A. M. Cox,
whose tent wc made our home, and a
casual survey of our surroundings
with a cheerful greeting here aud
there from friends, wo bad almost
forgotten, we began to feel at home,
to experience that unalloyed pleas
ure which springs from the renewal
of old associations and to enter upon
tho enjoyment of the religious ser.
vice's of the occasion. It. has been
said that campmcetings, having serv
ed the purposes for which they were
instituted, should be abandoned and
protracted meetings substituted in
their place, but tho results at Cattle
Creek prove that they, by the proper
effort on the part of both preacher
and people, may be made effective for
good-even in this advanced period of
refinement. As centres, from which
eradiate wholsomo religious infln
enccs, no meetings can equal these,
reaching communities often widely
separated from each other that could
not otherwise be successfully reached.
The want of fruit in campmeetings is
due rather to . tho sparse population
of the section in which, they are lo
cated rather than the failure of the
peculiar kind of meetings to meet the
demauds. They should bo located
in neighborhoods thickly populated
with live Methodist families,the heads
of which arc willing to yield their in
dividual uolions and to make the
proper sacrifices for the good of their
church. We are aware of no peculiar
combination of circumstances which
made this meeting a successful one,
yet twenty-four conversions, a dozen
accessions to tho church and a deep,
all-pervading religious influence
through a large crowd collected from
various sections of the county, may
bo set down as tho results of Cattle
Creek Campmceting. Such results,
apart from the social features of the
occasion, the communion of thought,
and the generouB hospitality which
give character to a people abroad,
make campmeetings us potent for
good as in the days when our pioneer
preachers made them subserve so ef
fectively the aggressive policy of
We have seldom had the pleasure
of listening to a series of sermons
better calculated to accomplish tho
purposes intended than those preach
ed by the ministers on this occasion.
Prof. Duncan beside his effort in be
half of Wofford College, was a zeal
ous and eloquent worker for the sal
vation of souls and doubtless his stir
ring sermons bore their full share of
the fruit of the meeting. The period
of campmeetings is not passed, nor
will be, so long as people will assem
ble in mass to hear tho gospel.
Before closing these notes wo will
express our grateful acknowledge
ments to our friends for the words of
encouragement everywhere given
concerning tho Democrat. Wo are
determined that the paper shall suc
ceed?and succeed upon its merits
only; therefore such words ns wo
heard spoken daring tho meeting,
serve to strengthen as well as en
courage us. As the people's organ,
wo offer them a newsy, reliable and
well printed paper, and, by the help
of their continued patronage, wo hope
to make it the equal of any country
weekly in the State.
The attention of our farmers and
citizens generally is directed to tho
communication of Dr. W. F. Barton
in another column on this subject.
At this season of the year while the.
crops arc standing in tho fields, it is
an easy matter for the farmer to se
lect bis best acre of cotton or corn
with a view of sending tho product to
our County Fair? 'Wo hope it will bcj
done;-' and-our fall exhibition will
stand without a parallel in the quan
tity and quality of farm produce:
This is also the right time for the la
dies to begin their needle and rag
work, their preserved and canned
fruits, and their wines and cordials
intended for tho Fair. Garden vege
tables and llowera may also receive
extra attention, so that the best vari
eties of these may be pub on exhibi
tion. If the proper interest be mani
fested by our people, and especially
the farmers and their wives, the
County Fair next fall will bo the
grandest success hitherto achieved
by tho association." The indications
so far are satisfactory and the out
look promising, notwithstanding the
disastrous effects of the late drought
upon the crops in many sections of
the county. Let this interest bo
not only kept alive but increased by
the friends of the enterprise, and a
most gratifying exhibition will be the
