Troublo in Georgia.
J^rom ,reports given in the Augus
ta papers, it seeins that a reign of
Aercor.ejcisle in a portion of Baldwin
and .Iiaucoek Counties, Ga., caused
l>y a gang of lawless men, Btyling
themselves "regulators." Dwellings,
gin houses, provisions and other val
uable property have been destroyed
by these men; negroes have been
whipped, and lives taken in the mo?.i
brutal and savage manner; officers of
.thedaw have beeil defied and justice
prostituted to subserve the vengeance
of a few despeiatc characters; and as
a consequence of this terrorism the
particular section of country where it
prevails has been abandoned by the
citizens to protect their lives, nor
,cnn they be induced to return unless a
sufficient force is furnished to insure
protection. It is understood that a
thorough investigation of the trouble
has been made, and every means will
.be employed by the authorities to re
store the section to peace and order.
The Governor has determined to ar
rest the band if it takes a regiment
of soldiers ; and with a purpose to re
sist the authorities the gang have for
tified themselves in an almost impen
etrable swnmp am? bid defiance to
sheriff and constables, The causes
which provoked these men to such a
lawless course of conduct must be
great, or the men themselves, losing
all the restraints of society, have be
come desperate in purpose and mean
to lead lives of crime regardless of
ftiie consequences. For the sake of
,the peace and order of society and
the prosperity of the countr)*, it is a
matter of interest to every' one that
the partieu lie arrested and mado toJ
.antler tho full vengeance of the law
they have violated.
A United Parly.
The present experience through
.which the Democrats of Charleston
arc passiug, and the troubles incident
to the split in the party of New York,
remind the citizens of Orangcburg,
who are looking on not as indifferent
spectators, that no good can come
out of a divided parly. The folly of
Mich a course becomes more apparent
in those states and counties where
elections arc close, and resolves it
ijolf into a crime in all localities
where the Radicals are in the majori
ty. In Orangcburg County our po
litical opponents are not only in tho
majority, but their leaders arc influ
ential men among the colored people.
.Some of them still linger in office
.even though the Democratic party
.control the government, and they
.will be slow to give up their seeming
.birth-right without a struggle. It is
.oasier to live off the pickings of a fat
ofllco than by the swoat of ones face,
und these gentlemen don'!, mean to
try it unless forced to do so. Schemes
ure being concocted and plang laid
by which theso offices might be re
tained for themselves and others if
possible obtained for their friendo.
We may expect, therefore, to have
stubborn opposition during the next
campaign, and if wc get them out at
all wc must be united and vole to-j
getker. Independence in politics out
side of party organization is a cheat
and a fraud. A united party in
JLhesc days can only be independent.
Surrender of Cornwallis.
At a recent meeting of the Gover
nors of the thirteen original colonies
J.o'.d in Independence Hall, Philadel
phia, it was resolved to have such a
celebration of tho centennial of this
occasion as shall be befitting its his
torical importance and the greatness
of the American States. Nine Gov
ernors were present, including Gov.
Simpson of South Carolina, and each
spoke in the highest terms of the le
ception and welcome they had receiv
ed wjiich gave birth to the hope that
|his meeting would exercise a power
ful influence in bringing about unity
of feeling and sentiment between the
North and South. This meeting can
not fail to call up its parallel qeea
sion when, in 18(!b* at the National1
Convention held in the satno city,
South- Carolina walked arm in arm
with Massachusetts, and thus laid
the foundation for hopes that have
not yet found their realization m fact.
Will it require another centennial of
the Yoiklotvn surrender for the seed
of good feeling sown to-day lo "ma
nure its expected fruit? When the
harvest time comes then we will
have emerged from the conflict ol
the "Lost C use," fo g?lten the mem
ories of the past *tnd taken up the
energies, the .social principles and
ihe political doctrines of the new
Our Annual Fair.
The lime of holding our regular
Fair is now at hand, and wo tafca the
liberty of calling the attention of our
reads! 8 to it, and of urging upon our
whole people the imp ?rlanee of sus
taining an institution which has done
so much to further the agricultutal in
terests of our County, and which has
contributed very largely to the social
enjoyment and improvement of all
who attend. It is ccrtaiuly a very
small matter for every formal* and
farmer's wife to bring something to
help out the exhibition, to say noth
ing of I lie chance of taking a premium.
A great many little things can make a
very large show, and we should all
contribute our mite to make the Fair a
grand success. Taken altogether it
has been admirably managed, and if
there has been some dissatisfaction at
the awarding of premiums, it should
be remembered that nothing of hu
man origin can be perfect, and that
as far as possible tho managers of
t he Fair desire that all shall have jus
tice. Thou let everybody turn out
and show that it does not need the
presence of a Governor to make us at
tend our Fair.
Go the first day for the exhibition,
the secone to sec the crowd, and the
third to hear the premium list read
The Ohio Reverse.
The Neioa and Courier thus moral
izes on the result of the Ohio election,
and thinks that the Republican boom
may even roach South Carolina, aud
warns her citizens to be on the alert:
"The Republican party clings to
the sectional issue. Upon that issue
mainly, it has swept Ohio ; and upon
that issue, solely, it hopes to carry
New York. It is certain that it will
make every effort to perpetuate, at
any cost, the political unrest at the
South at least until after the Presiden
tial campaign of 1880. South Caro
lina, we may be sure, will become not
the least important battle ground of
Republicanism in the South. The
Stalwarts insist that this is a Repub
lican State ; they mean to make it so
if they can ; and it will require cease
less vigilance, unflagging work and,
above all, adsolute unity on the part
of the Sourh Carolina Democracy, to
thwart the combination of influences
that will be enlisted for their over

John Quincy Adams.
At the late convention of tho Dem
ocratic party of Massachusetts this
gentleman received tho nomination
for Governor, and in his letter of ac
ceptance recognizes the impossibility
of his election, lie only accepts the
position because it is necessary, in
these times of political corruption,
that one, representing the ancient
principles of the party, should bear
the standard through the approach
ing campaign in a State where there
is such a departure from tho princi
ples that controlled the fathers. Mr.
John Quincy Adams is tho grandson
of President John Q. Adams, and
none is better suited to lead the for
lorn hope than he.
In regard to the Presidential nom
inations, the irrepressible and incom
prehensible Tlntrlow Weed is quoted
as having said to a recent interviewer :
"There are two facts well established :
one is, that. Tilden will not '?o a pow
erful candidate. 1( Cornell is elected
Tilden will fail to get even the votes
of his one stale ; aud if Robinson is
rcclcclcd, his chances in the Dem
ocratic Convention would not be mat
erially improved. The fact is, Til
den,s name docs not appear on the
slate ; he has been ciphered out."
Tin: Ralliraore American enter
tains hopes of a revival in tho Repud
lican party in the South. It says:
"Recent trustworthy advices from
South Carolina and Texas report se
rious dissensions among the Demo
crats of both states that may prove a
powerful force for party disintegra
tion. In Texas there is every pros
poet that two independents pledged
not to act with the Democrats, will bj
elected to the next Congress, and in
Soutli Carolina there seems to he no
doubt that tho Republicans will effect
a perfect organization during the
Fault-Finding at tho Fair.
The following essay was road to
the Chcmung Valley Grange, October
2d, 1879 : "Those of you who at
tended our late county fair every day
as exhibitors and competitors for pre
mium?, often, yes very often, heard
tho words from tho lips of visitors, "J
have better than that at home.'* I
>vus si'ting in one of the booths
watching and listening to the rematk*
ftom those who visited and inspected
tho different articles on exhibition
until at last patience was lost. A
lady came in and looked at the differ
ent articles, and then expressing her
scorn, said : 'Why I havo got bet
ter at home.' I sprang to my feet
out of patience, and exclaimed :
'Why didn't yon bring them, mad
am? Do you think it pleasant for
these exhibitors to bring their articles
here ami spend a week's time in
watching and taking care of them,
run the risk of their being spoiled,
damaged or stolen, and then to bo
obliged to listen over and over again
to the words you have uttered so
scornfully?'I have got belter at
There is a class of people, and 1
nm sorry to say they constitute quite
a large number, who make it a prac
tice to attend the fairs nnd pass
through the different departments
finding fault with everything. And
the disease is contagious, for Mr. A.
will say to his neighbor, 'just look at
those apples, you havo great deal
finer specimens in your orchard.'
Then this neighbor will go and find
Mr. C. and show him those apples,
and say, 'Why, what did they tiring
those apples here for? I wonder if
he expects to get a premium on
them ; why I havo great deal larger
applcB at home in my orchard.' Then
Mr. C. remembers that he has a very
fine yoke of oxen at home. So he
goes and looks at the oxen and tells
his neighbor what poor looking oxen
they are, and winds up by telling
what a nice yoke he has at home.
So I claim that this fault-finding dis
ease at our fairs is very contagious.
It is not only contagious, but it is un
pleasant and discouraging to those
who do exhibit; and it is injurious,
too, for these very same people will
go home hugging the delusion that
their products at home are a little
1 better than those at the fair. Nino
times out of ten they are deceiving
themselves, for wo cannot decide un
til wc bring our products together
and compare them with those of our
neighbors. This is the only true test.
1 inquired of a good many of my
friends what they were exhibiting,
and they answered 'nothing.' The"
in a low tone, and confidentially, they
would tell mo their grievance, how
one year and another they brought
such and such things to the fair and
failed to get a premium. The judges
were all wrong, they gave premiums
to the men who had the most inferior
articles, and since that time my
friends had censed to exhibit at the
To one farmer who talked in this
way I said : 'I want you to look at
this exhibition of potatoes, is it not
vciy fine? Here arc, say, fifteen en
tries, now only two of these can get
a premium. Would it be right for
the other thirteen exhibitors to get
offended and make the foolish resolu
tion never to bring anything to the
Hero, in every department, you
will find a great many different arti
cles, for which no premiums are offer
ed. They are simply brought here

Another well-to-do farmer said it
was nothing but a 'ring,' a regular
'machine,' and unless a man was in
tho 'ring' he need not look for any
I tried to convince this man that
he was prejudiced against the society.
I told him that I had just received |
the first premium in a class where
the number of tho entries and the
excellence of the exhibits had never
been equaled in the past history of
the Society, and that I was quite sure
that I did not belong to any 'ring' or
'machine' I do not say that the
management is perfect?neither does
the Society claim that it is in all its
work. Let us get out of this narrow
rut of selfishness and help tho Socie
ty on by our earnest efforts until it
shall come nearer perfection in its
11, :z said that our fairs do not
equal those of many of our neighbor
ing counties. Who is to blame? Is
it the Society? No, the farmers of
this county, this grange, yes, every
grange in the county. This grange
and each one of tho othor granges of
this county are able to offer a list of
special premiums at our fairs, that
would call out an exhibition that
would rival our State fairs.
There is another thing, while I am
criticising that I would say a word
about, and that is in reference to far
mer's eons and daughters exhibiting
at our fairs. While in conversation
with a lady, who visited both of the
great fairs held in Minneapolis and
St, l'nul, last year, she said one
ol their greatest attractions was a
youth's or children's department.
Thc80 departments were filled with
articles cither grown or made exclu
sively by children. Now 1 say, for
one, let us have n children's depart
ment at our fairs.
There Is one other department in
which the ladies are very much iutci'7
cstcd ; the ono Jn which fancy work
and domestic manufactures are dis
played, which sadly needs its premi
urn list' extended. It is all well
onough to give a premium for the
[best bed-quilt exhibited, but tho la
jdies say thej want a chance to com
! pete for something besides bod-quilts.
Several ladies signified their willing
ness to give special premiums in tins
department. J "Would suggest also,
that a committee of young ladies be
appointed " by the Society, another
year, to arrange the articles in this
department. A*" great deal of skill
and taste could be displayed in this
way, which would add largely to the
attractiveness of the exhibition.
Let 119 corantencc now, planning
and working for the next fair, and
when it does come, we will have an
exhibition for variety and excellence
that cannot be excelled by any of our
si3tcr counties. Fletciikh Carr.
The County Fair.
Editor Oraiigeburg Democrat;
The Agricultural Fair of our coun
ty is coining close on hand, and I
have made it my business to enquire
of its managers, the probabilities of
its success. The, Board of Directors
are greatly encouraged by reports
from all parts of the county, and ful
ly expect to have a heavy exhibition
and full attendance. Besides, this
information, I ' have been assured
from different parts of the county
that the people are taking the right
spirit to make it a success. From
the preparations, I see the Hoard of
Directors arc making every conccivn
ble effort lo give satisfaction to all
They have promised to pay the
premiums in silver coin, so that those
Tho win can purchase if they choose,
some article as a premium of the So
ciety. From what I hear from differ
ent parts of Uie county, (if the
weather be go\d), I expect the
grounds lo bpjjfepwdcd each day.
From inquiries, I find that the amuse
ments each day will be interesting
and novel, and the exhibition so va
ried aud full that it will take at least
three days to sec all?one to enjoy
the pleasures and amusements of the
occasion ; one to examine tho improve
ments- and ingenuity of our people ;
and one to enjoy the social pleasures
of each other, and see the curiosities
of nature. I know of several remark
able natural curiosities that will alone
be worth coming to sec. Then the
programme of the Tournament, the
Judges decked up in a fine carriage,
accompanied by the King and Herald
of the occasion, and a fine band of
music followed by fifteen or tweuty
knights each in their varied costumes,

company of Light Dragoons, to the
gionnd, there to compete and vie
with each other to crown the Queen
of Beaut}'. Who is it (then) that
would not leave off his daily voca

life? Who is it that would not send

Now in behalf of the Board of Di
rectors ami of tho efforts of tho Agri
cultural Society generally, I appeal
to tho fanners of the county to send
up contributions, and come with their
families?yes, tho last ono of them?
and patronize the Fair. You cannot
spend your money more profitably.
Again, I appeal lo tho citizens of all
other professions, especially the mer
chants and traders of our county,
who fatten and reap their very cxist
cuco from tho hard earning of the
farmer, to palronizo tho Fair. Re
lease your employees, pay thoir way,
and say go and help those that help
us. Why is it that the streets of our
town are sutdi thoroughfares at this
season of Ihe year? Because it is the
farmer moving his produce to enrich
your pockets ; yes, and often sacrifice
Iiis hard earnings to maintain Iiis
credit with the merchant. Who then,
in the name of common sense, can
pocket his profits without patronizing
iho fanner's efforts.
We hear of new county fairs to be
held in various parts of our State,
and as Orangeburg County has rank
ed high in the past among them in
that respect, let her still hold this
honoicd position for all time to come.

A Wonderful Discovery?A Panacea
for Cotton Mania.
Editor Oranyeburg Democrat.:
I am due you one more letter on
Oals, but you, in your editorial, gave
us such admirable advice on this sub
ject, that I thought] I would give
you a few suggestions under the
abovo heading, Cotton Mania. This
disease prevails to an alarming extent
among the cotton planters of Orange
burg County. It is deep seated, very
difficult to eradicate. I need not
to diagnose. As you pass along the
highways symptoms on the right and
lett prove that cotton is on the brain.
In my first letter 1 showed that farm
ers were in the last stages of the dis
ease. In this, I propose a remedy,
palliative if not curative. I would
class tins disease among the self-lim
iting diseases. It will run its course.
To convince a, farmer that it is more
profitable to plant oats on that rich
lot or productive field is impossible.
Cotton must grow there, it is good
for ten bales, 810 per bale. Wc
know wc can't remove these ten bales
from your brain, it is too cumbrous,
we wish to add 400 bushels of oats
more, if your cranium can toat it.
Sow one and a half bushels of red
rust proof oats per acre, after having
applied twenty bushels of cotton seed
mixed with two hundred pounds of
acid or four hundred pounds of ash
element per acre, as a fertilizer.
This will secure you forty or fifty
bushels of oats per acre. Leaving
the land in good heart with a little
'soluablo manure to make you your
ten bales of cotton. Now, brother
farmers, if you think your brain will
admit of more weight we would add
peas at the last plowing of cotton.
We have demonstrated this fact, the
present year, a good crop of cotton
and peas on the same acres. J. C. H.
will be at the County Fair, happy
to meet his friends and discuss the
present subject in detail. Very res
pectfully, J. C. H.
