We were glad to meet our worthy
friend Dr. W. F. Barton after his re
turn from a month's Btay on Snlh

and the sea air proved to be quite a
relief from the hot and sultry weath

Ebony Straker and Bolivor have

The Rev. Dr. Webster opened his
harranguc on Saturday by informiug
his colored hearers that he had no axe
to grind?in other words he did not
want an office. When it is taken into
consideration that this political par
son now holdo one of the best paying
otfices in the county his disinterested-,
ness can be fully understood and ap
preciated. There are a good many
more patriots like you, Doctor, in the
The factory buildings of' Mr. Geo.
II. Cornelsoif are approaching com
pletion. Beside the main factory in
which the machinery will be operated
thoro are tenement houses for the op
eratives aud a brick building for seed
cotton capable of holding five or six
hundred bales. The boiler and en
gine are already in position and only
await connection with the machinery
to give the long wished for hum of
tho spindle to our town. Would
there were more Cornelsons in
Orangeburg then the beginning of a
city might be dated.

occasion of a grand ratiOcation Mass
Meeting of the Stale to be hold at
Columbia. Addrosses will be delivered
by Senator Bayard of Deloware, Gov.
Vance of 'North Carolina and other
leading statesman of tbc South.
Those- gentlemen will loll our people
t hat the election of Hancock and Eng
lish means the deliverence of our coun
try from Radical thraldom, from tho
spoilings of corrupt officials and from
the deepest political disgrace that ever
rested upon the fair name of a noble
state. Representative!} from every
quarter of tho state and tho adjoin

Sheridan's Classical School will
open at the rooms in the Fair Build
ing on the first Monday in Septem
ber, at 9 o'clock a. tn. Pupils, both
boys ond girls, are requested to be
punctual in their attendance on the
flrstpJay of the term. This is (impor
tant in ordor to onablo the principal
to classify and arrange the grades.
The necessary assistance will be cm
ployed and every effort made to ad
vance tho pupils in their studies.
Tho reputation of the school for thor
ough teaching and strict discipline
will be maintained, and, by extra ef
forts, improved during the year.
The success of the past encovrages
the principal to hope for a liberal pat
ronage from tho public. Students from
the surrounding communities, and
other counties can obtain board in the
family of the principal, with Mr. J.
M. Danner or G. W. Brunsen. For
price of tuition, board and course of

At a recent meeting of tho board
of trustees of the Agricultural Col
lege at Columbia, complete arrange
ments were made to opon that insti
tution on the 1st of October next.
Tho chair of Geology, made vacant
by the declination of Prof. Joseph
LeConte, was filled by the election of
tho Kev. James Wood row of Colum
bia and late Piofossor in the Theolo
gical Seminary there, Sullicicnt
money was placed at tho disposal of
the Executive Committee to provide
for u successful beginning of the first
term, Mr. G. W. Connors, of Hamp
ton County was elected foreman of
the farm. Ail tenants, who have
been occupying the College buildings,
will remove forthw'th in ordor that
the rooms may be mai'e ready for
the students, who will be charged no
other fee than that of ten dollars for
room ren t. The name of the inslitu
lion is "'nie South Carolina College
of Agricultural Mechanics," and of
course degrees of graduation will be
conferred on all those who complete
tho prescribed course.
This is the first effort made since the
war to give tho youth of our country
a strictly practical education. The
prediction has gone forth that the
enterprise will be a failure, because
the business of a College is to train
the mind to think properly, whitest
to do, is the after work of the student
himself. We really see no reason why
a College may not learn a man to do
as well as to think?why not both.
Re-Union.?On Friday, the 13th
instant, the students and ex-students
of Newberry College from the lower,
portion of the State met at Trinity
Church iu Middle St. Matthews for
the purpose of organising a union
among them in the interest of educa
tion generally. After the usual pre
liminaries, a permanent organisation
was made by electing Prof. J. B. O.
Ilolloway, President, Rev. William
Stoudenmire, Secretary and Treasur
er, and the present incumbents to the
(Alier offices. Speeches were made
in behalf of general education by
Prof. J. B. O. Ilolloway, !J. G. Sheri
dan, Prof. Gco. B. Cromor and Rev.
S. S. liabn, tho two last professors of
Newberry College who made most
excellent addresses in advocacy of
col lego education as the best system
yet devised for training the mind and
preparing the studcut for future suc
cess in any of the vocations of life.
These gentlemen have inudc a most
favorable impression upon tho com
munity, and will doubtless widen
their sphere of usefulness in a field
where there are already many honor
ed graduates of Newberry College.
After a rpcess of an hour to partake
of a splendid dinner prepared for the
occusion by the citizens of the neigh
borhood,, tho Union reassembled to
finish tho business before it. Re?o
lutions of thanks to tho citizens for
their generous hospitality were unan
imously adopted, and, after tho bene
diction, a meeting of all the Sunday
School children from the different
churches was culled. C^uite a num
ber of schools were represented, and
Rev. Wm. Stoudenmire, Rev. S. S.
Ruhii and Prof. Geo. 15. Cromer en
tertained the large audience in their
happiest style. The occasiou was a
most enjoyable one all rouim.

der and, after an appropriate address
to the delegates present, requested
Mr. J. L. Heidlmao, Sect'y of Exec
utive Committee, to call tbe. list of
clubs and rolls of delegates and alter
nates. Tbe call having been com
pleted, objections were laised to the
delegations from Humpton and
Rocky Grove Clubs which necessita
ted tbe appointment of a committee
on credentials. One from each club
constituted tho committee and after a
'short absence reported the difficulties
adjusted. Tho Chairman announced
that the convention was ready for per

Scct'y & Mr J. L. Heidlman was ap
pointed Sergeant at arms.
Resolutions requiring all candi
dates and delegates to pledge them
selves to support tho ticket about to
ho put in the field wore laid on tho
table on the ground thai, it was un
necessary, the party being harmoni
ous and every delegate felt himself in
honor bound to support the ticket
with his best efforts, also to require all
caudidatcs for the legislature to ex
press their views upon tho subject of
whiskey and pistols, were unanimous
ly voted down. The President announc
ed that tho convention was ready to
unter upon the work of nominating a
county ticket and asked which should
be tho basis of election, a two third
vote of the delegates or a majority.
It was decided that a majority vote
.should rule and that ihr ?o minutes be
allowed for any speech putting in
nomination a candidate. Gen. Jus.
F. Izlav was upon motion unanimous
ly nominated for the position of State
Senator. Ten or fifteen geutlcmcn
were put before the convention for
the Legislature and on the first bal
lot Dr. J. W. Summers having re
ceived ninety five votes und Dr. J. ('.
Holman eighty nino were declared
elected. A motion was then made to
nominate the two next highest by ac
clamation which was aboptcd and
Capt. Augustus Fludd and Dr. B. 11.
Knotts were declared nomiued. The
Colored delegates, nine in number,
then presented the names of Alexan
der Brown and Aaron Simmons for
the Canvenliou to select one of them
as a candidate for the Legislature.
After the ballot the President de
clared that Alexander Brown was
The following gentlemen, after nu
merous ballotings, were nominated
for the county offices ;

ty Commissioners, Messrs. C. G.
Dantzler, J. C Fanning and Marsh
al! Jones, colored ; School Commis
sioner, Mr. Styles R. Mellichams, and
Coroner, Mr. J. L. Heidlman. The
delegates, having now completed the
work for which they were called and
a resolution of thanks to the Presi
dent having been offered by Mr. Jno.
H. Phillips, for the able and impar
tial manner in which he had conduct
ed the business of tho session, the
Convention was addressed by the the
President upon the importance of
Harmony and Unity in the party and
earnest effort on the part of every vo
ter in order to secure the election of
the ticket. The Convention after a
laborious session adjourned at half
past eleven o'clock P. M.
Thk syoophantish Bolivor advised
tho negroes last Saturday in his har
raugue to them to carry the election
by peaceable means if possiblo, and if
thev couldn't carry it by peaceable
means to carry it by some other.
Such incendinary Inrguagc as this is
calculated to brew trouble, and when
the "other means" is being used we'll
wager a hat that the redoubtable
George won't he there.

office on the occasion of a oull by Mr.
