Tho Grand Jury's Report.
3y order of the presiding Judge we
publish the full text of this report in
to-day's issue, and we would call the
attent ion of the reading public to the
contrast between this report and the
one made by the same grand jury at
the last1 term of the court . There are
iive county officers lillcd by election
from the people: Clerk of Court,
School Commissioner, Hoard of
County Commissioners, Judge of
PrObaVe and Sliciilf. Of these the
two, Cleric and Sheriff occupied by
iho lingering1 Radicals, Messrs. Gco.
lioliVer and J. li. Livingston, arc
spoken of lightly but in eommcdalory
terms; those occupied by Democrats
'and elected by the people, one, the
School Commissioner, is reported
fairly kept, but his spelling is unne
cessarily ridicule I; the County Com
missioner's office is presented as be
ing in a state of confusion, no min
utes kept, and the Commissioners
themselves, reported for neglect 61
duty in the matter of roads; and the
other, Judge of Probate, is not so
much as mentioned by the Grand
Jury. Our county li nances' are in h
"dreadful condition," but the report
of the G rand Jury fails to assign a
cause for this condition, which we
think could be easily traced back io
the Radicul rogues who grew fat on
"the people's taxes before the Demo
crats obtained control of the govcrn
'mciit. It would have been well if
Ih'c Grand Jury had suggested some
way out of this trouble. The wonder
is that our officers have done so well
witli such a burden of debt as that
Ye ft upon our county by the Radicals
to contend with. In view of thp na
ture of this report, tho standing ol
Vhe gentlemen who constitute the
Jury, the charges upon Democratic
"officials,' it u influence upon t lip party
and the advantage it gives Um Radi
cals in the next election, we would
respectfully suggest that the County
Commissioners and those who have
charge of the Poor House demand
a searching and thorough investiga
tion of their official conduct and ac
lions, in order that the blame may
rest where it properly belongs, and
iiio party and the innocent officials
ho exonocuted. As a campaign doc
ument against the Democratic party

The Stale campaign of Oliio having
cmloij with a Democratic, discomfit
ure which, so far as Um calculation
of our success in the next l'reaiden
ti:il campaign is concerned, proved a
disastrous failure, and teaches us the
consummate folly of candidates like
Mr. Kwing, or canvassers as Mr.
Thurman entertaining and advoca
ting individual or peculiar views oih
I or than those endorsed by thp party.
Hal the campaign hcen confined
strictly to party issues, the result
might have beep dlirurent and our
success in the imtional campaign of
1880 reduced] to an absolute certain-*
ly. While the lailurc of the Demo
crats to curry Ohio, docs. not decide
I ho national election of next year in
favor of the Republican parly, it in
creases the probabilities of their suc
cess in proportion as it diminishes
that of the Democrats, and if they
carry New York because of the split
in the Democratic "party there, '.tlipy
will have in their favor all the moral
influence of two successes, and the
Democrats that of two defeats in eon
tests iceognized by both parlies as
an index of the result of 1880. It is
no use to disguise the fact that to
carry New York in this Slate elec
tion is essential to a Democratic suc
cess next ycni : tborcfore wc should
pursue the contest there now with
unparalleled energy because we know
the fight must be won ; and because
we understand its transcendant im
portance to an ultimate Democratic
success. Kvery movement known in
political tactics should be resorted to
and the combined sagacity of the
leaders of the party should be
brought to bear upon Ihn campaign.
The same necessity which prompted
the Republicans to such heroic cft'orls
in Ohio, and yvhieb raised a Stale
campaign to the dignity of a national
election, should prompt the Demo
urals lo win New Vork it matters not
what may oppose. Had wc won Ohio,
New York might be an indifferent
prize, l ocalise the success of the na
tional ticket would have been assured.
On the other hand if New York
should follow the example lead by
Ohio, the Democrats will enter the
campaign of 1880 not with the pres
tige of two political successes or the
influence of one even, but with a dc
dclerminhtion to perform their part
bravely; honestly and manfully in the
face of misfortune and to inaugurate
such an energel ic, enthusiastic cam
paign us will bring out every voter
who really desires an honest govern
or the people to a centralism in the
hands oT a few. We honestly believe
if the campaign of 1880 is confined
strictly lo party issues and is not dis
tmbed by local splits or quarrels, a
Democratic President can be elected
as certainly as Tildsu was in 1S70,
notwithstanding the reiults in Ohio
or New York.
The Mickey and O'Connor Contest.
Sometime ago the Radical Super
visors, appointed for the las', election
and other friends of Ilm Radical can
didate for Congress, were examined
by My. M.ickey and quite a volume
of testimony was gathered beating ou
the fraudulent conduct of llie election
by the Democratic party by which
thai gentleman was defeated and the
party of "new ideas" failed to secure
a representative in Congress. Since,
bowevor, the present Congross had
sealed Mr.; O'Connor it was hoped
that the furth?r prosecution of this
investigation would cease, and the
matter1 be allowed t > rest until Un
people at tho next election might de
clare tln-ir will. In the mean time it
becomes necessary to oh lain testimo
ny to rebut that given by the Radicals
in order thai the committee having
the mattet; in charge might have
something ehe for their guidance be
sides the ex jiurlc statement given by
Mackey's Iricuds. Hence a further
examination of witnesses was had
last week by Mr. O'Connor in the
presence of Air. Muekey which went
far lo upset the latter gcnllcmau's
hopes and to shake bis faith in the
existence of Democratic fraud, un
less, like every other Radical, con
viction against his will leaves him of
tin; same opinion still. Indeed Web
ster's bill, with three or four hundred
colored hoys and a hundred or so
women about him; is us near the
American Congress as Mr. E. W. M.
Maokey will ever get, and his only
reason for this investigation is the
hope of securing a ten thousand dol
lar gi ah like Cor bin in the las' Con
gress. If in tho course of human
events, Congress is ever again under
the control of tho Radical party, Mr.
Muekey will bo found in the lobby
assiduously pressing his claims upon
thai body lor invaluable services ren
dered the parly in bringing lo light
Ihc crooked ways and in exposing
the Tissue ballot dodge of the Demo
crat of Chat lesion and Orangeburg
Counties. Of course an even 810,000
pay pill will be decided little enough
to send Maokey after Qorbln to the
gqld Holds of Colorado. Tins is Mr.
Mackoy's duly hope.
On the 23d ijistant there was a
grand meeting at Salisbury! N. C, of
the Carolina soldiers of both armies.
Ten thousand persons were said to he
picsenl. before whom speeches were
made by the great ones counseling
iho same devotion to the Union Hag I
as was given lo that which lead eve
ry true Carolinian either to an hon
ored g aye or a glorious farad. Peace
and good will between the North and
South were the burden of every song,
while gay decoration of the town
with Union Hags inducted the fancy
away to dreams of bettor days, and a
sumptuous bhrbeciio dinner made the
heart for tho time forgetful of the
hardships that tried men's souls.
These centennial gatherings may be
all well enough in their places and
serve a laudable end ; grand decora
tions of Union Hags and brilliant
llreworks may enliven tho passing
moment; and eloquent speeches on*
peace and good will may please the
ear of those who never Buffered a
wrong or endured n hardship; but
associations cluster about the memo
ry of the "Lost Cause," and ties are
spun mound the Confederate; ting
"that cannot?will not bo undone."
The followiug card should have ap
peared two weeks ago, but having
been misplaced accidentally, was de
layed to this issue. We cannot avoid
expressing surprise that the necessi
ty for wiiling such a caul should
arise knowing Mr. Conner as we do.
The following is the card :
Information having reached my
ears that there is in circulation n re
port to lue effect that 1 have been
cheated or defrauded out of live hun
dred dollars by L. S. Conner in a
serlain real estate transaction, and
knowing the samo to be untrue, I,
therefore, take this method of inform
ing the. public that the same is a wil
ful and malicious lie, us in all busi
ness transactions that 1 have had
with L. S. Connor he has acted hon
estly and honorably.

How to Select a Husband.
Editor Orungcburg Democrat;
As I opened your paper of October
10th 1 noticed an article with the
above caption. As I had always un
derstood that tho ticketing was on the
"other hand," that uchteiico put a
thought in motion ; so 1 read on, and
what precarious advice you gavo "^us
girls 1" " ' ? V
1 happened soon after tobe with
several of my old school-mates who
had married within tho last year or
two. Tho firsl had married a mer
chant. In a confidential lete-a-tcte
ishe said to me: "If you ever marry
I want you to marry a storekeeper;
they are c.o thoughtful and good ; my
mantle is always fillod with apples,
oranges or something nice. And in
fact, J believe tiny uro better than
anybody else." Mentally, "I stuck
a pin there."
A short while afterwards I was
walking with another who married a
farmer last March. We bad left the
scuppcrnong vines, alter having en
joying a royal feast, and were stroll
ing toward the "cane patch,*' an 1
were indulging in all the pleasure and
beauty ofa rural evening stioll, when,
with all the gravity of a philosopher,
she said, "I want you to marry a
farmer! how happy and quiet and
bountiful everything is. Aud alto
gether, I think fanners generally are
kinder hearted, and more unselfish
than other people."
1 began t) be amused at the differ
ent advice my well meaning friends
were, favoring me with. When I ar
rived at homo I found a letter await
ing me. 1 opened it and found it
was from a third school-mate, and
very dear friend, who had married a
Methodist minister about two years
ago. In discoursing on her parson
age-home, and the happiness of help
ing a good man do good, she very
solemnly advised me to marry a
preacher. Or, if I hail pot made lip
my mind, lo pay her a visit, and she
thought she could convince mc that
prencbeis made the very best of hus
bands. I fell back in a paroxism of
laughter. Can't you imagine what a
turmoil of indecision my mind must
have been in V
What it different view different peo
ple from different standpoints take of
the same life !
1 felt really glad that thoy, having
taken chances in tho lottery of life,
had all drawn prizes suited to their
fancy. Still, Mr. Kdilor, as yd(i say,
wc cannot know till the fatal step is
taken, whether Wi, have drawn a prize
or a useless blank. 1 think / shall
still (fdherc to that old-fashioned
inclination, and not trouble at all to
select, for fear of drawing a blank, but
wait, and, if a noble "lord of crea
tion" thinks proper, be myself sc 'eclcd.
