Will Grant be Nominated?
According to calculations based
upon tho best Republican authority
as well as others directly or indirect
ly interested in the nomination ol
Gen, Grant at Chicago, we arrive at
the conclusion that ho will be the
next candidate for the Presidency of
the United Stales. There arc but
three hundred and seventy-nine votes
needed to secure this.- result. Of these
ho will receive from New York the
entire vote of her delegation which
amounts to seventy in all. Pennsyl
vania will give him fifty-eight, and
forty-two voles from Illinois, together
with two hundred and sixty-six from
the "solid South" will giv^ him more
than the number necessary and leave
:t large margin for anti-third termers
to operate upon. There arc othor
Western apd Northen: Slates equally
certain to give hiur solid delegations
which will put his nomination beyond
the shadow of a doubt. Indeed so
determined seem tho body of the Re
publican party upon Gen. Grant as
their candidate that his nomination
may be made by acclamation. Many
Democratic leaders and a large por
tion of the press arc disposed to look
upon Grant as the easiest of all tbe
Repuplican aspirants to bo defeated.
This may or it may not be, but U
does not accord with our past experi
ence with the Republican party.
Party allegiance with them is the on
ly Controlling principle in politics,
and with the unity which has hereto
fore characterized that allegiance the
opposition of third-termers docs not
furnish sufficient reason upon which
to base a split. Nor is il at all prob
able that enough of those, working
against a third term, will pctsist in
their opposition to defeat Iiis election.
There arc in every Northern Stsile a
number of Republicans who act from
principle and will oven vote for a
Democrat if ho be a man of as pure
a record a3 Senator Bayard or even
Judge Fields. But this number is
scarcely sufficient to warrant us in
expecting any thing like a disastrous
split in the Republican ranks. Jt
therefore becomes the duty of thVf>SN<i
lional Democracy to abate not one
iota of their zeal even if Gen. Grant'
should be the nominee, and the way!
to success seems easy and sure. j
Senator Hoar's burning indignation |
against the white cadets at West
Point, tor their ostracism of Whilla
ker electrified his fellow-Republicans
all over tho country. But a corre
spondent of the Washington Republi
can takes the wind out ol Hour's sails
with the following suggestion : "Sena
tor lirucc is worth a hundred Whitla
kers, and his Senatorial and social
ostracism is, from his position, a
thousand times more offensive than
Whitlaker's. The "Hon. Mr. Hoar, of
Massachusetts, made a telling speech
the other day on Cadet Whillukor
bel?g left to himself, but the honors;
blc Senator did not think how severe
ly lie has left Senator Bruce and bis
charming wife alone." Now, this
correspondent is extremely verdaut
if ho expects the colored man to be
received on social equality with the
white Republican;-?. Here, in Orange
burg, whore the 'negro does all the
voting and where the few while Radi
cals manage lo gobble up all the of
fices, wo never hoar of a social gath
ering at which the white and colored
brethren meet together on perfect
equality. Let the negroes think of
this, and insist on being recognized
socially by those men who expect lo
ride into fat positions by their voles.
Tho Columbia Register says that a
private letter received* in Columbia
announces the fact that ex-Gov. D.
H. Chamberlain has boon pronounced
insane by hi;; physicians in New York.
When ox Cov. Chamberlain wao in
politics in South Carolina wo opposed
him from first to last, because wo be
lieved him lo bo 03 bad as any of the
venal and corrupt gang with whom
be was associated, but now that the
heavy hand of afiliction has been laid
upon his brew, depriving him of the
reason with which God had so mag
nificently endowed him, wo forgive
nil, and entertain for him nothing
but sympathy and kindly feeling.
Tho Poll Tax.
During tho tlnys of Radical misrule
and plunder tho poll tax, which is
provided for by tho constitution, re
mained uncollectcd from the colored
people. Whito citizens paid very
nearly the entire taxes of tho ?State
which run tho government, enriched
Radical olllcials aud educated the
children. They wcro obliged to pay
it, poll tax and-all, boenuso their
landed estates would pay the forfait
through executions and sale. The
hu ge majority of colored* people would
not pay one dollar of tax, not oven
tho poll which was appropriated ex
clusively to the education of their
children. To enforce tho payment of
this tax the Legislature a few ses
sions ago passed an Act making im
prisonment the penalty of non-pay
ment of the poll tax. The work
ings of this law brought thonsauds of
dollars to tho school fund and iruj
prispucd hundreds of colored people
througout the sidle. This last, feature
made it unpopular and several at
temps were mado lo tost its validity
before the court but signally failed
until quite recently twelve colored
men who had boon confined in the
Charleston jail for non-payment of
the poll tax were brought before
.Judge Prcsslcy on a write of habeas
corpus. The prisoners were ordered
by the court to bo tVscbargcd on tbe
ground that the act prescribing im
prisonment for non-payment of poll
lax is unconstitutional. J udge l'ros
sley, in delivering his judgment,
took the position that the poll tax is
a debt and that the constitution ex
pressly forbids imprisonment for debt.
It also provides that the penalty for
non-payment o( taxes shall bo equal;
whereas this la v prescribes imprison
men for a poor man who fails to pay his
poll tax, aud a dilTcrcut punishment
for a rich man who fails to pay bis.
While this ruling of Judge Pressley
may be strictly according lo the writ
j leu law, it will certainly operate dis
j astcrously against the school fund.
Colored people will not pay
their poll lax if they know its pay
ment cannot be enforced. This will
again throw the burden cf taxation
upon the white citizens and tho^o of
our colored people wiio own property
liable to sale. Orangeburg county
will in all probability lose live thous
and dollars by this decision. It will
therefore become tho duty of the next
Legislature to enact such a law as will
meet the demands of the constitu
lion and at the same time bo effec
tive in enforcing tho payment of the
poll tax. j
Tho Floral Fair.
According to tho announcement of
tbo Directors of tho Urangeburg
Agricultural and Mechanical Associa
tion the annual spring Floral Fair
will bo held at the budding on the
1-lth instant. All the previous exhi
bitions of this character have been
very creditable to both town and
country, and it is expected that the
tlowers and the garden products of
the county will not fall short either
in variety', quality and quantity of
past years. The Directors arc mak
ing ample preparations, but tho suc
cess of the Fair will depend ma nly
upon the interest our people lake in
the matter. No county in the State
has built up more rapidly from the
ruin of the war in tho essential ele
ments of material prosperity than Or
angeburg ; and this progress has been
noticeable in no feature more thm
in the Floral Fairs hold year alter
year. Wo have hoard of excellent
gardens throughout the county which
is doubtless attributable as much to
the industry of the people and climate
of the country as to the very favora
ble seasons of tho winter anil spring.
Let lite products of the garden, both '
useful and ornamental, be collected !

success of this exhibition the ladies

the Directors that tho Fair may be a
grand success, and eclipse any one of

A Move in the Right Direction.
In their report to the Court on
Wednesday, besides the matter "usu
ally presented on such occasions, the
Grand Jury recommended that all
persons who wish to deal in the li
quor business be required to pay a li
cense pf 81,200 per annum for the
privilege. This virtually closes the
business to all dealers in tho county,
except in incorporated towns, as the
jury has full power in tho premises.
If similar steps could bo taken with
reference lo carrying concealed wea
pons wo would soon witness a belter
state of public morals among our peo
ple. Tho Grand Jury deserve the
thanks of the people for this long
stiido in tho right direction.

Our Stale exchanges report county
after county falling iuto line.and en
tering the campaign with full ranks
and a united party. In a few sections
local troubles seemed at one timo to
threaten division in the ranks of the
party and lndependenlism as an in
evitable result, but these troubles
have becu adjusted and perfect har
mony now reigns throughout the
I Slate. Pure Democracy is the con
I trolling principle, straight-out candi
dales for otlice is the ruling policy,
and no compromise with Republican
ism or tampering with galvanized
Radicals is the pass-word of this cam
paign. In view of the opposition to
be met and the great importance ol
success to the Democracy and the
well being of the Stale, the campaign
should be short, sharp and decisive.
To consumalc Ibis end every Demo

Tho Moral Sublime.
There are many instances on re
cord of generous self-sacrifice in be
half of others among the white race
in every age of the world, but we
know of none which excites more ele
vated ideas of the moral sublime than
the noble act, recently witnessed in
Charleston, of the three colored men
who gave up their lives without hesi
tation in an attempt to save a friend.
Such an instance of heroic daring de
serves the highest commendation from
every intelligent man, and we ore
glad the citizens of Charleston have
given a tangible proof of their appre
ciation of the doed by subscribing
liberally to a fund for tho benefit of
j the families of these brave men. Few
j persons, even in the most refined
state of society, mveh less among the
colored people, can so far forget all
selfish interest as to devote their
! lives to the salvation of another. The
spirit that dares such deeds must
surely be the prompting of inflexible

President Hayes returned to Con
gress the Deficiency Hill with his
veto attached. The ground taken is
that tlse bill contains general legisla
tion to alter cxj^Ul'g laws. The.in
tention of the veto ra evidently to de
feat the proviso which requires the
special deputy marshals for elections
I to be appointed by the -Judges of the
i United Stales Court in equal numbers
from tho two political parties. l>y
this act, President Hayes gives an
additional proof that he is nothing
!but the wretched tool of a mean par
it 3*. .It is thought that Congress will
embody the proviso in a distinct and
separate bill and thus avoid the pre
sent objections to the measure. It is
! not the intention, however, of the
Republicans to allow a measure so
; fair in its provisions to pass. Other
j specious objection will be brought
forward by the parly and other pre
test found for Mr. Hayes to veto the
j independent bill. We shall see.

HARD TIMES BE CONE!
TT AVING been watching for some
JLJL time pnfitt tho financial pulse of the
country ami the ever varying events of
tho trading world with a view to the in
crease or decretive our weekly purchases,
we are prepared to announce to our num
erous patrons that our Investigation of!
these subjects bus been perfectly satisfac
tory und that we have as a consetpu neu
forwarded larger orders than ever be
fore to our New York agency.
Tho year 1S8? therefore begins with
llatlering prospects for farmers, mechan
ics and idl other laborers alike. The
financial pulse of the country is steadily
improving and having returned alinosl
to a huru money basis, wo shull gradu
ally but Mirely recoyer our former pres
tige and the so long declining prosperity
of our beautiful Southern land. Being
(irmly impressed with the fore-shadow
lllgs of these approaching events we have
made arrangements commensurate with
the demands they will disclose.
Our Agent in New York is already in
receipt of our instruct ions directing id in
to be on the alert for every sale and fail
ure as well as eve'"V house tottering on
tho brink of bankruptcy, so that he. with
cash ill hand may take in every bargain
and thus enable us during the present
year not only to increase our own re
sources, but, to become also a never
changing source of assistance t<> our
friends by selling them goods far below
the wholesale market of New York.
It was the credit system that paralyzed
our Industries ill the phst and caused so
many interests to droop and witiier while
every arliele needed for family consump
tion doubled in value. Thus while labor
was inadequately compensated, goods ot
every description approached almost fab
ulous prices and the daily sweat Ol a
man's brow barely obtained for himself
and family the commonest necessaries of
life. Too much credit will always create
demands greater than the sources of sup
ply will satisfy, bonce everything takes
sin upward tendency under its operations.
Oil the other hand cash transactions will
make the supply larger thau the demand
and consequently goods fall to bottom
prieos when I hi* rub: prevails. We long
ago adopted this system and find that it
works splendidly in all its hearings. If
you follow it 3-ou will be sure never to
buy what you do not want, and in this
way keep you from the iron clutches of
We paj' cash lor all our goods before
they h ave the place bought from. Hence
our ability (independent of our unrivaled
facilities for buying) to outstrip and un
dersell all nur competitors. The mer
chant who buys on time, (and who ot
theill doesn't) not only has to pay the high
est prices for what /hey gel but also the
a Idilional percentage added on all credit
stiles. Now ail this comes out of tho con
sumer, the man who patronizes the time
merchant at home. It will at once be
perceived thai the dillercncu between us
is vast indued, and that the buyer on
credit system cannot purchase goods at
market prices, w hile we. by paying cash,
get the most extraordinary bargains at a
large discount oil wholesale cash prices,
it is therefore quite easy lor us io sell
below oiher merchants and guarantee
perfect satisfaction in every case.
Our system is one of our own. and has
man}- advantages which we shall not ex
plain, but let it sufllu* thai the larger
portion of the benefits arising from il are
reaped by our friends and patrons, and
} by il we have established n reputation
near and dear to us. With honesty, fair
dealing, quick sabs and .-mall profits as
our watchwords we have conquered the
demon of high pi ices and forced from
him the acknowledgement that he has
been systematically swindling and de
1 lauding the people.
VYe have demonstrated to thousands
in this and other counties that it is pos
sible when dealing with a fair and honor
able merchant who buys strictly for cash,
to purchase goods at prices which were
current before the war. To buy and sell
goods does not necessarily imply that to
[ bo successful one must either be a con
scienceless extortioner or a ^rasping
j Shylock, as in every other calling tin;
merchant can dignity and ennoble his
j profession or he can sink it into iniquity
I and trail its courtly garments through
cesspools of deceit, dishonesty, fraud and
double distilled misrepresentations. He
can be a blessing or a curse to bis coun
try. As lor us we prefer a good name
with a slow but steady Increase inbnsi

one merchant rieb to-day mid a thousand
poor farmers penniless and brcadless to
Ours is the true plan, by adopting it

insure satisfaction, increase your wealth
and general prosperity. Week alter

spread daily upon our counters a stock

I We will sell tor one dollar cash what
