actual cxistonco of a cotton factory
within her bounds?all due to the
vim nnd enterprise of one man.
Foun thousand and fivo hundred

It has been reported on the street'?
during the present week that there
were to be several arrests of managers
of election and other Democrats made
by the United States Marshal. As
yet every thiug in quiet and no arrest
have been made, nor do wo think like
ly to be soon.
? 1,000 Democratic majority for the
county ticket has so elated our popu
lar City Clerk and Treasurer, Charlie
Jones, that he iuvitcs all his friends
to Van Tassel's to smile with him,
and at the same lime secure big bar
gains in staple and fancy groceries.
Don't miss a good thing.
There arc a fjw colored men who
have 8lood nobly by the Democratic
party through the severest trials and
among these none has been truer

We learn from a reliable source
that a colored mac named Livings
ton, no kin to John 11., voted the
Democratic ticket at Cedar Grove on
the 2d instant and was seized by a
crowd oT negro radicals and threaten
ed most savagely because of his vot
ing. Had it nut been for the protec
tion given him by the whites present
the savage crowd might have put their
threat of killing in execution.
It is rumored that 1). A. Strukcr
has been tendered and accepted a po
sition in the Custom . House at Char
leston. At all events he has been
absent from Oraugcburg ever since
the election, which calls to triad a
remark of Lee on Ilngood's day:
"Watch Strukcr, he will skip the
town of Orangeburg as soon as the
election is declared." It is a happy
riddance for Orangeburg County.
Jack Minnicken, colored, who
voted the Democratic ticket at the late
election, was set upon aud niohhed otT

RAplCAL Election Tactics.?Near
Lawtonville, Hampton County, while
two gentlemen were reluming to tkc.ii
home late on Tuesday evening, some
villainous Radicals tired upon them,
killing Isaac Colston and his horse
nstantly, and wounded the hoi sc. ol
the other. Mr, Colston was a white
Democrat und an humble and quiet
citizen. Every elf.ut is being made
to find out the guilty parlies. The
Democrats are indignant at this das

to be also a fortune teller, was sent
for a few days before the election by
Corry Roach, a colored man living on
Mr. M. R. Ar.lloys place in the Fork,
to see his wife then sick. Alter treat
ing his patient, Postell, as fortune
teller, revealed the past and future
history of Corry for which he was
paid. That night a paity of negroes
consisting of Isaac Curry, Jim Simp
son, Shed Simpson, Gabe Jennings
and Freeman Lyons, led by a colored
preacher, named lluiglcr, armed with
ropes, knives and pistols, violently
entered Corry Roach's house, took
Postell out and, with threats of imme

: Canvassing tub Vote.?Tlio Board
of Commissioners of Election for Or
nugeburg County, composed of Capt.
P. M:. Wannnmakcr and Mr. T. 0.
Albergolli, mot in the Courthouse on
Tuesday last, and in the presence of
a huge number of our citizens of both
races and canvassed the election re
turns of the different precincts. The
violence acd lawlessness of the Radi
cals at a majority of the precincts
made it absolutely neceesary to ques
tion these returns, and for this pur
pose the law committee, composed of
Messrs. M. I. Browning, A. C. Dib
ble, W. J. DoTrovilio and T. B. Wha.
ley, were in attendance to represent
the Democrats and Messrs. Warren
R. Marshall and Abinl Lalhrop the
Radicals. Objections, upon strictly
legal grounds, were made to counting
the votes of tho Lewisville, Foit
Motte and Fogle boxes. These ob
jections were based upon the intimi
dation of voters by the Radical party
and the unwarranted interference
with the election by so-called United
States Marshals. Alter due conside
ration of every point the Board de
cided to reject the Lewisville, Fort
Motte and Foglc boxes. Messrs.
Marshall and Lalhrop entered a writ
ten protest against the general pro
ceedings and denied the jurisdiction
of the Board in the premises. The
report of the Commissioners was sent
up to the State Canvassers on Wed
nesday, by whom the returns will
again be considered and the fluni do
ci.-ion made. So far as the success ot
the Democrats is concerned, that is
assured. The Commissioners did their
work honestly and fcarlcsssly, and
merit the thanks of every well think
lug citizens of the county. The ob
jections to some of the boxes recount
ed the most outrageous conduct on
the part of a large portion of the
colored people, which can only be ac
counted for on the theory that such
men as Boliver, Webster and Straker
arc the authors of it, and, therefore,
the responsible parties. How long
will Orangoburg County endure such
The Row at Johnson's*?A corre
spondent of the Columbia Registern
gives the following account of the
dillicully at Johnsons on election day,
of which brief mention was made in
our last issue: Jesse Butler, a negro,
challenged the vole of another negro
on account of his youthful appear
ance. The young negro thereupon
declined to vole. Iiis falber Antuey
Miles, foo'i met Jesse Butler on the
street when a quarrel ensued, in which
Antuey' said, that with twenty ne
groes he could charge the box and
tuko posaesion of it, and immediately
began to put his threats into execu
tion. Bis movements upon the box
were promptly opposed by the white
and colored Democrats, when a regu
lar melee commenced. Those negroes
who were iu closest proximity to the
box (among whom was Antuey Mil
es), soon beat a retreat while the fir
ing was being principally done by the
negroes in the rear, wl o were shooting
over Ihe heads of their allies at the
white and colored Democrats in
front; and in this manner Antuey
allies lost hi i life, being shot by one
of his own parly who was trying to
pick oil the honest defenders of the
ballot box. Others were wounded
during the riot, but in the midst of
such contusion it was of course im
possible to tell by whose hands the
shots were Ii;cd."
Intimidation.?At St. Matthew's
on Saturday morning last Cap;. 1>\
M. Wannamnker found the following
notice on a tree at the entrance of his
avenue: "To Frank Wannamakcr: If
you do not declare the election in our
favor you will be dead and in bell in
three days." Underneath the notice
was a target completely riddled with
buckshot or pistol shots. If this was
an attempt to intimidate the Captain
.tin! Uiuko hi in declare the election in
any other way than as the returns
warranted, we think that the writer
has discovered by this lime thai.ho
woke up the wrong passenger.
