Ouii Nominating Convention which
iineels next Wednesday should re
meniber that offices are not. intended
as rewards for individuals, or as
prizes' to be contended for by ambi
tious or impecunious citizens. Of
fices of trust, should be dispensed
solely lor the public good, independ

Capt. F. V/. Dawson and Gen. J.
D. Kennedy iiaVe been selected as
>tnembtirs' of. the National Finance
Committee of the Democratic party
for South Carolina. The names of
these gentlemen are a sufficient guar
antee that every effort will bo mude
to secure the complete success of the
Democratic p?tty.at the next elec
tion, both state und nutiocal.

And now comes another fasting
man named Hymon, at Dallas, Texas.
He has , been going now for sixteen
tiays, without food. Well, our sphyg
mograpb, dynompmeter, holograph,
bolacAust, sanhedrim, hungrygraph,
and gyroscope are all loaued out to
another fellow who is eating ngcinst
lime, and Hymon may goto Halifax,
or wait till our man gets through.
Did any army ever go into battle
without a flag? Let the men of Or-'
angeburg County decide first what
flag they propose to fight umlcr and
then follow it aggressively till the
convention settles the battle. After
that let every Democrat fall in to the
charge bayonets on the euemy's line,
with tho black flag flying. We must
let the Radicals know that we neither
ask nor grant quarters in this fight.
A correspondent of the National
liepublican has got it "real bad." Be
cause some of the department clerks
are supporting.Hancock, this blalbcr
skito wants to know if tho govern
ment is going to continue to employ
men. who are trying "to undermine
the nation, bankrupt-its treasury,
pension its enemies, and play the old
fellow generally. Verily, these Demo
cratic employees arc wonderful fel

Truly the love that our neighbors
North of Mason and Dixon's line feel
for their colored brethren is rapidly
on the increase. John H, Harris, a
colored Democratic " speaker from
Virginia, ultempted to make a speech
at Newcastle, Delaware, on the 31st
ult., but was stoned by a Republican
mob and forced to seek the protec
tion of the Sheriff. Won't some of
our Republican filends explain this
Tue Iladiculs. have called a conven
tion to meet in Culumbia on tho se
cond ?f September. The 'supposition
is that tbey will nominate an entire
Stale ticket, and exert their most
strenuous efforts to secure its election.
This is about the best thing that
could happen for the Democrats. It
will have the effect of restoring union
in the party, where it may now be
?wanting ; and will arousn the Democ
racy to such a sense of the importance
of victory that independentism wilt be
Bwept away like chaff before the
wind. Tho Republicans will mnkc
one more effort to regain power in
this State, and then they will "yield
up the ghost."
Tins ht v hat a prominent member
of the Republican National Commit
tee at a meeting in New York on the
jGlh, hod to say of the Southern peti
tioners: "They are simply trying to
make all they c m out of the fact that
they ore Republicans in the South and
lo enrich themselves with money beg
ged to help in the elections. These
fellows look upon the campaign as a
harvest time, just as the delegates
from the South did on tiic Chicago
Convention." Now this is pretty
heavy on Strnkcr, Webster &. Co.,
who were delegates to the aforesaid
convention. We suppose, however,
that the cominitteeman knew what lie
was talking about.
"T/r* Court House Ring."

b?V? Coli it lldtiso, wo assure par.read- j
era and the piddle, ihnt we have been |
unnhle to discover the fact, or to find I
out the members composing said
,4Kiii?." lint, ns usual, on the np-j
proucli of n campaign or election, the j
cry bi<s hi en raised, "Beware of the
Rings." Wiethcr their is nny foun
dation for this "hue and cry," which
has been raised, and the great anxiety
manifested by some, wo do not un
dertake to asset I positively, bGt, after
careful observation, we are inclined
to believe that there is none, and
that the so called "Ring" oxists io
the imagination only of a few "sore
bonds" and defeated political aspi
rants, who would prejudice tho mind
of the masses in order to advance their
own interest or gratify some unworllvy
spirit of revenge. We are opposed to
* Rings" and political combinations of
this kind, in totoy and if convinced
that such exist among us will go as
far, fight as hard, and sacrifice as
much as any one, to effect'their over
throw,'and dcfeattli'c diabolical ends
for which they are instituted. The
grond object of DemOoracy is to per
petuate good 'government, better the
condition of all classes of the people
and prcscive pure artd inviolnhlo our
civil and political institutions.- This
can not be accomplished by political
rings and cliques. Men of intelli
gence, who have studied life impor
tant quest ions of the day, and who are"
necessarily constituted leaders of the
parly to which they belong, have
a right, in a largo measure, to suggest
the policy and plans to be adopted
and periled ly their party. They
should be judged by the sincerity and
faithfulness with which they discharge
the high responsibilities and sacred
trust committed to their keeping.
When they traj'sceml proper bounds,
or form themselves into combinations,
lings and cliques for self aggrandize
ment, and thus conspiio against the
interest of the masses, they are no lon
ger worthy to be the custodians of n
peoples' lights nnd should bo hurled
from places'uf trust, and subjected to
the disgrace and c?iiilutncly which
iLcy ricblv dt servo, for there is noth
ing which so degiades a man and cov
ers him with shame, as to he fouial false
and perfidious. Let us be sine that
we do no one an injustice. But by
no means will we have any rings.
Preparing for Defeat.
The Republican forces have be
come so demoralized from straggling
and desertions, Hint Gen. Gaifield
was ordered to ride along tho front to
rally and encourage the broken batal
ions. The leaders have held a council
of war ; hut the chief was not invited
to participate. If ever a council of
war gave token of defeat, theirs sure
ly did. Each leader regarded his
own purt of the line :hc weakest ; and
each clamoicd for reinforccuieuts.
The crushing defeat in Alabama has
well-nigh produced a panic. While
the orders arc issued for an advance,
the stores are being moved to places
of safety ; and the trains put in order
for a sudden and hasty retreat. Jew
oil .proclaims that the party coffers
arc full; but his hired Hessians will
only add disorder to the final rout.
As announced, the Convention for
nominating county officers meets next
Wednesday. Tue- buccoss of Democ
racy in Orangeburg County depends
largely upon that day's work. Har
mony and concert of action will in
sure the success of the party ; dissen
sions and discord may cause defeat.
In view of this, we say to every one
remember what we have at slake.
Let every one resolve to yield indi
vidual preferences where the good of
the party can bo subserved. The de
feat of any individual candidate is a
small matter compared with what
mus.t result from tho defeat of our
party.' Again, we say to the dele
gates (composing the Convention.
Let harmony and concert of action
characterize your cveiy act.

Berry from childhood i feel safe in
saying that should he receive the
nomination at, ihe convention lie will
not be a load to ihe party, but will
carry his own weigh}. A gentleman
of a high sense of honor, he never
fails to make friends of those with
whom he comes in contact. Although
quite a young man he is extensively
known throughout our county for his
business integrity. Our section ol
the county (and we have next to the
largest roll in the county) has had no
representation in public matters since
the dark days ol Radicalism; We
uow put forth our claim and our
man?one that none can object to on
priuciplc, and ask a hearing. We
pledge our candidate to abide the ac

choice of that body will work lor the
success of our cause with unswerving
zeal until victory is proclaimed.
