We were glad to meet our worthy
friend Dr. W. F. Barton after his re

The Rev. Dr. Webster opened his

his colored hearers that he had no axe
to grind?in other words he did not
\yant an office. When it is taken into
consideration that this political par

offices in the county his disinterested

preciated. There are a good many

The factory buildings of' Mr. Geo.

cotton capable of holding five or six
hundred bale*. Tho boiler and en

await connection with the machinery
to give the long wished for hum of

Vance of "North Carolina and other
leading statesman of the South.
Theso gcntlcmeu will tell our people
t hat the election of Hancock and Eng

spoilings of corrupt officials and from
the deepest political disgrace that ever
rested upon tbe fair name of a noble
state. Representatives from every

The necessary assistance will be cm
ployed and every effort mado to ad
vance the 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 tho year.
The success of the past encovrages
the principal to hope for a liberal pat
ronage f:om the public. Stndentsfrom
the surrounding communities, and
other counties can obtain board in the

At a recent meeting of tho board
of trustees of the Agriculturcal Col

The chair of Geology, made vacant
by the declination of Prof. Joseph
LeConte, was filled by the election ol

ton Couuty was elected foroman of
the farm. Ail tenants, who have
been occupying the College buildings,
will remove forlhw th in ordor that
the rooms may be mat'e ready for
the students, who will ho charged no
other fee than thut of ten dollars for
room rent,. The name of the inatitu
lion is "The South Carolina College
of Agricultural Mechanics," and of
course degrees of graduation will be
oonforrcd on all those who complete
tho prescribed ooursc.
This is the first effort made since the
war to give the youth of our country
u strictly practical education. The
prediction has gone forth that the
onterpriao will be a failure, because
the business of a College is to train
the mind to think properly, whilest
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.
ReUnion.?On Friday, the 13th
instant, the students and ex-students
of Newberry College from the lower,
portion of the State met at Trinity
Church in Middle St. Matthews for
the purpooo of organizing a union
among them in l|te interest of educa
tion generally. After the usual pre
liminaries, a permanent organisation
was made by electing Prof. J. B. O.
Holloway, President, Rev. William
Stoudcnmire, Secretary and Treasur
er, and the present incumbents to the
oilier offices. Speeches wore made
in behalf of general education by
Prof. J. R. ?. Holloway, H. G. Sheri
dan, Prof. Geo. B. Cromer and Rev.
S. S. Uabn, tho two last professors of
Newberry College who made most
excellent addresses in advocacy of
col lego education ue the best systom
yet devised for training tho mind and
preparing ihc student for future suc
cess in any of tho vocations of life.
'These gentlemen have mude 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.
Alter a recess of an hour to partake
of a splendid dinner prepared for the
occasion by the citizens of the neigh
borhood, tho Union reassembled to
finish tho business before it. Reso
lutions of thnnks to the citizens for
their sonorous hospitality were unan
imously udoplcd, and, after the bene
diction, a meeting of all the Sunday
School children from the difTcront
churches was culled. C^uite a num
ber of schools were represented, and
Rev. Wm. Stoudcnmire, Rev. S. S.
j Ruhti and Prof. Geo. B. Cromer en
| tertained the large audience in their
I happiest style. Tho occasion was a
( most enjoyable one all round.

to the dclogatcs present, requested
Mr. J. L. Hcidlman, Scct'y of Exec

clubs and rolls of delegates and alter
nates. The call having been com
pleted, objections were laised to the
delegations from Hampton and

that the convention was ready for per

Scct'y & Mr J. L. Hcidlman was ap
pointed Sergeant at arms.
Resolutions requiring all candi
dates and delegates to pledge them
selves to support the ticket about to
be put in the field were laid on the
labic on the ground that it was un
necessary, the party being harmoni
ous and every delegate felt himself in
honor bound to support the ticket
with bis best efforts, also to require all
caudidatcs for the legislature to ex
press their views upon the subject of
whiskey and pistols, were unanimous
ly voted down. The President announc
ed that the convention was ready to
ontor upon the work of nominating a
county ticket and asked which should
be tiic basis of election, a two third
vote of the delegates or a majority.
It was decided that a majority vote
should rule and thatlhrjo' minutes bo
allowed for any speech putting in
nomination a candidate. Gen. Jas.
F. Izlar was upon motion unanimous
ly nominated for the position of State
Senator. Ten or fifteen gentlemen
were put before the convention for
the Legislature and on the first bal
lot Dr. J. W. Summers having re
ceived ninety five votes and Dr. J. ('.
Holman eighty nine 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. II.

Colored delegates, nine in number,

The following gentlemen, after nu
merous balloting8, were nominated

Coroner, Mr. ,1. L. Heidtman. 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 aud impar
tial manner in which lie had conduct
ed the business of the session, the
Convention was addressed by the the
President upon the importance of
Harmony and Unity in the putty 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.
Ttn: syoophantish Boiivcr advised
the negroes last Saturday in his har
rnuguc to thorn to carry the election
by peaceable means if possiblo, ?nd if
they couldn't carry it by peaceable
means to carry it by some other.
Such incendinary language 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 be there.
