How does the above letter correspond
v.ith tho information furnished us, {
(which came from a source as high and as I
credible as that of General Izlar,) tin-j
<ler date of Sept. 17 ?
"Tho State Committee regard tho Con- j
"stitutional amendments as party meas-!
"tires and have instructed" tlie printer J
"to print tho ballots with tho word,;
"Yes," only. So that the ballots issued:
"by order of the Kxecutivo Committee,
"will all be in the atllnnalive."
And under date of October 4th, we are
informed by one who is equal of authori- j
tywitliGoncr.il Izlarlhat j
"It was necessary for the Slate Com- j
'mittee to print the ballots oneway or;
"the other; and they could not possibly i
"have printed them in the negative with"outgoing
counter to every expression
"which could Uo considered authorita-l
"live." J
We make these extracts from private!
letters in rindication of ourselves, and to
show that \ve had authority for saving in !.
ihe Press ami Banner of a recent date: '
"So determined arc the State Democrat-; ]
ic Executivo Committee to force all these ' ]
amendments upon us, whether we want!
them or not, that they have determined
to print but one set of tickets, and that]'
yet being exclusively for the use of those j |
favoring the adoption of the amendments, | j
while those of our citizens who do not
approve of those measures will be furnished
no opportunity to voto their senti- <
incuts. Under such a system it is practically
proposed to disfranchise a large pro- i {
portion of the white men of the State, j
nnd we think we are safe in saying that!
two-thirds of the white men of Abbeville i1
'o?nnty are opposed to the division of thisj1
bounty, and would, if the Executive Com-,(
inittefr permitted them to do so, vote;5
against the Constitutional Amendment!1
reducing the area of counties. If we tin- j'
tlerstatui the spirit and temper of our fit-11
izens who want new Court Houses in j1
their respective neighborhood, they)
would scorn to take the advantage ofi J
their neighbors in this way. The people [
in this county who want to divide the J
county are honorable men, and we can- '
not beliere that they waut any unfair ad- !'
vantage. 1
"We believe the Executive Committee ?
should represent and act for the whole j J
Democratic party, and if they persist in ] I
nifir uciiiui m lurnisu uckcis 10 mose 011 '
our citizens who would voteagaidst these !:
amendments, the public will know how j *
impartially and how faithfully they have j ?
ti'.scharged a trust of honor." j1
We desire to ask General Izlar a cate-; f
garical question, and we hope that hejt
may feel warranted in giving a categarical
answer: Will he state if the Exccu-j t
live Committee intend to distribute an j r
equaln umber of "Yes," and "No" tickets I
/ to the different counties^ irrespective ot v
any action of any County Chairman ? t
Wo ask the above question because we \
know that the different counties have r,
been called on (or will bo called on) for j t
estimates of the tickets wanted. We al- 1"
t?o know tlat the County Chairman of it
/ Abbeville has ordered an equal number p
i of each ticket?"Yes" and "No"?and v
Jj we also have it from good authority that
^ the County Chairman in at least one'I
county in response to the request of the11
Executive Committee for a bill of tickets, j 1
ordered all the tickets, for his county to j li
be printed "Yes." j fi
The plan now seems to be, if the Coun-11
ty Chairman, will order tickets, that as a; p
special favor, they will be grauted, butjfi
that for those counties whose County
Chairman does not order otherwise all; p
the tickets will be sent "Yes." Be-ii
#? : , _ tween the two sets of trusted officers, are: s
we to be cheated? We say "watch the' p
. S?v-V* Executive Committee," and "watch the ^
Countv Chairman." I a
. * I
Ah to the authoritative expression, we c
presume the action of the Legislature is; f<
referred to. In reply to this, wo will say' t
that we believe it absolutely and positive-1
Jy true that auy member of the Abbc-f
ville delegation who may have voted for
that Amendment, misrepresented threefourths
of the Democratic voters of Ab-'
boville county, aud if we are allowed a]
free aud fair ballot, wo are confident that; n
the election returns will prove the cor-1 ^
rectuess of this opinion.
We shall "watch tho Exccutivo Com-j '
mittce," until they make some positive
and unequivocal expression as to the *
manner, mode and number of tickets to .

Izlar's letter to the editor of the Yorkc
!ville Enquirer is anything else than satis- t
factory to us. If tho Committee intend v
to treat us fairly, thov owe it to tlieinJ
1 * Q
selves and to their political followers, ^
who should have 110 reason to distrust)
1 ti
them, to state in clear and unmistakcable j ^
terms what they intend to do.
Wei certainly have difficulties enough, { .
without having the Executive Commit-!
? a
tee to create a feeling of distrust and fear!
in the minds of our people, and the soon-1
^ er they make honest, unequiy j&l.atidJ
cluar public statement, Yhe better it will I
be for oLV parties interested. Their silence
at this time does as much as any-L
tbing else to create distrust.
Facts in the Cnse. li
To show how much reliance It is safe If
for our people to place in the Executivep
Committee, and to show how much the a
promise of the Chairman of the Execii-|a
tivo Committee is worth, wo herewith jn

this county, which has come into our'P
hands since the above article was put in J u

Chairman's promise, and to know!''
how the wishes of the Democracy are re- j8

it will be o'nly necessary to state that

The greater the number of education-faal
centers, tho greater will be the stu- Ci

nary in Virginia last year had 45 stu- Vc
dents.. The Columbia Seminary was u,
opened this Fall with 22 students, and th
the Virginia Seminary opened with 47, i pr
, and a protective increase of 8 more, j j,Li
Thus giving a net increase of 32 students.: k,

.'ommiiteo have entered into a conspira- ]
v to force ibis amendment upon them
lolcr.ti volfns. It would be more becom- !
ng in journal opposed to tho change of
ho law, and opposed to allowing persons
iving ^0 miles away from county seats
elicf in tho premises, in discuss this
luostioii 011 its merits than to attempt to
jring odiuiu upon the Executive (.'oninittec
and upon the leaders in the Duni-;
>cratie party. j
"If this unreasonable clamor came from
lie Radical party, four-lift lis of whovi j
annot read their tickets, there might bo j
some ground for it. IJuteoming from in- j
elligent Democrats it is hard to conceive
hat their true motive is simply t<> have a!
air expression at the election. We give j
lore some extracts from the columns of
lie Press anil Manner which have been i
;opied by others and enlarged upon to
how the unfairness charged upon the]
Committee, but which must, when exposed,
reik-ct more strongly upon themtelves."
We have no objection to discussing the i
bounty question. That subject has been ;
rully ventilated by tho Press and Banner, j
md we have now come to the time for j
rating on the question, and do not intend '
o quietly submit to tho withholding ofi
ickcts from a majority of the Democrat- j
c voters of the State. If the Executive j
Committee did not intend to force the new |
ionuties on us, why did they not order]
lie necessary tickets, to ascertain a fair
jxjircssion ? The insinuation that
he editor of the Marion Merchant and
Fanner was deficient iu the ability to
'conceive that our true motive is simply
to have a fair expression at the balot,"
is of 110 consequence to us. DemoTat,
or no Democrat, wo believe that a
arge majority of tho respectable white I
jeoplc of Abbeville county, who claim to j
>e as good Democrats as any member of j
he Executive Committee, will vote "No" i
)n the County question.
The Merchant ami Farmer further
lays:
"Believing that most of the Democrats
.vould favor the Constitutional amendments
proposed the Committee instructed
them printed in tho affirmative?after
stating the proposed amendment, 'Yes' is
idded ; knowing full well that any one
.vishing to vote in opposition thereto
,vould only have to scratch the word 'yes'
md write 'no' opposite.
"On tho other hand If these arr.ondnents
had been proposed against the inerest
of the party these words would
hen have been reversed, and 'No' would
lave been used instead of 'Yes,' as has
ilways been done in such cases. There
s no requirement in tho election law in:onsistent
with the cour.so wo propose,
['he Committee disclaim any intention of
lartialitv or unfairness in what they did,
md we have no doubt that they will lurlish
tickets on both sides of the question
f it be made to appear that any considerible
number of Democratic voters dwsire
t. One-fourth of the money spent iu
ailing at tiie Committee would have paid
or printing all the tickets needed by
hose voters who wish to vote 'No.' "
If the scratching of a ticket issoJittle
rouble, why not let the Executive Comnittee
print them all "No'" If it would
>e good for us to have them all printed
\ess and Banner. Although opposed |
o the formation of new counties he pro- ]
loses to vote with the majority. Abbe-|
ille county is uncompromising opposed j
o new counlics, but strange to say that,
uring the primary canvass, while war j
ras being made upon a College and ouri
ducational standards, nobody thought of
he proposed constitutional amendment'
.liich would make two or three counties
ut.of Abbeville and double our county
ixes. While a great noise was made
bout appropriating $10,000 or Sl'0,000 for
:io higher education of our own in?tv:>
orn white boys, uobody seemed to pay
ny attention to tfc/a proposition to levy
n annual tax, in fees and salaries, of
\o\ naif a million dollars to support new
iflicers. \\ hile this great fight against
ur higher standards was going on, it is
telieved, with one or two exceptions, that
ur legislative delegation quietlj' promHod
to vote against the wishes of a con
miiouu} Miiu wuiuu noi, in our opinion, |
lave elected any one of them on that|
uestion, if that question had been pubicly
raised, and if men otherwise acceptble
had offered for the places on the negtive
side. If our own delegates vote
gainst us 011 principle, and other deleates
votes against us because it may be
opular In their own counties, wo are
ndono. Our only hope is in tho people I
liemselvcs. They must take caro of!
heir rights. Let tho people themselves
ettle this matter now and forever.
Who Will Take the Lead 1
Now that our railroad prospect is so
rell assured, we deem it our duty toj
teadily advocate the establishment of a!
Junk at this place, and to press the lie-!
essity and wisdom of the same. As to j
he advantages of a Hank, especially to]
he farming interest, we think there*can|
ie no question. We mean a Bank in the j
iroper sense of the term; not a mere j
lawnbrokerage or shaving shop. Jtj
hould be eo managed that the farmer;
an obtain money with which to pay cash '
r>r articles of prime necessity. To do j
his he must be able to obtain money at I
living Interest, both to the borrower',
nd to the lender?each must live. If 1
he farmer could pay cash for what he
iuys it would be better for him and bet-1'
cr for tho merchant. The farmer would !1
>e able to buy chcaper and the merchant |'
rould be able to turn his money over tho (
ftoner, though ho make but a small j
irotit in each transaction. We think P
here can be no question as to tho necessi- i'
V of a Bank for this place and county, j'
V'lio then will take tho lead in the mat-'|
,-r, hiiu wiiu >vui lunowr?JMyefizld A<l-\

We care not who takes tho lead in the I
ankhig business at Edgefield. What'1
e want to know is, who will tako tlie|]
iad in securing the location of the rail- j
>ad work shops at Abbeville? Abbe-'i
ille is a central place, and the largest j'
iwn through which the Railroad will I,
in, that lies any way near the half way!1

ould that authorize the Executive Com- 1

| We kn >w the Mxeeutivo Committeo aro
triu* u:iJ l<;y:i! u?en to '"the party." Their
! every action proved Iliis. And their zeal
is commendable mid worthy of a p?od
j cause. The only ditliaulty about tLioin is,
I iu our opinion, they are laboring under a
! slight delusion as to whoare "theparty."
! Their action, which speaks louder and
j moro forcibly than words, would indij
catc, beyond a doubt in our mind, that!
, nicy regaru uiu panv i?j uu uiw fjuimu-j
| men who engineered tho Constitutional i
; amendments through a caucus, and which ]
! caucus in turn forced them through the j
Legislature. As yet the people who, j
under ordinary circumstances, are adni
it ted to be part of the Democratic par-j
ty have not been consulted about this;
most important measure, and the Coin-j
inittee, who are working for "tho party"
would deprive us of our birthright.
We are of opinion that "the party," to |
which I lib Committee is so loyal, docs not!
consist of more than half dozen names, |
all of which wo will take great pleasure;
in furnishing to our readers, as soon as'
they are obtained. To have a full list of
"the party" of gentlemen who have such j
absoluto control of our Executive Com- I
mittte would afford interesting reading
for tho great mass of our Democratic
brethren who have heretofore been presumptuous
enough to think that they
had tho right to vote as their conscience
dictated.
The Political Outlook?Arc New Counties
to he Named for onr
Hull dozers.
So far as we have been informed there
seems to l?e litLlo change in the political
situation hereabout since our last issiie.
The question of which we now hear most
is the new county movement, and the
quiet manner in which the Executive
Committee have acted in reference to the
Wlmn nnnvf innu nf Qilr?h vital l
interest are at stake, and when so much
depends upon a faithful performance of
their duty, it is wonderfully strange that
nothing can move the Executive Committee
to break their silenco by a fair
and manly statement of what they intend
to do, and what we may expect of them.
It is idle lor the Executive to think that
j wo in Abbeville are such fools as to be
satisfied jnth tickets in tho negative on
constiutioual questions, when the necessary
tickets are denied to tho people of
any other county. We want a full and
fair voto, even if each of the different
members of tho Executive Committee!
should fail to have a new county named
for them. Tho gentlen^n who engineered
the movement through the Legislature,
as well as the gentlemen comprising
the Executive Committee, will have
to seek some other mode of perpetuating
their names. Wo cannot afford this expensive
plan. There would bo about
enough new counties under the proposed
constitutional amendment to immortalize
these gentlemen, with a few left over for
special charity favors. We believe that
"Tom" can do us but little harm now.
It is the Executive Committee that we
should watch.
IVt.A 4 .. DM
vrong, it would certainly be as well for
bose who want to voto "Yes."
As to whether the proposed aniendnents
are good for us, we propose to be
he judges, and want no bull-dozing, unlirness
or instructions from the Kxocu- j
ive Committee. Only let the Committee j
>rint the proper tickets, and they will be i
oted.
We are glad that one member of the j
Executive Committee disclaims any in-j
ention of "impartiality or unfairness."
f he will tell us exactly what wo will
iavo to do to make it appear to his satisiction
that any considerable number of
)emocrats desire to vote against tho proiosed
amendment, we will undertake to'
urnish tho proof.
In conclusion, if it is a matter of cxicnsc
that deters tho Committee from be-'
ng just in the matter of tickets, we will
av that if they will order the tickets
irinted "No" on tho Constitutional j
Intendment in reference to the counties, j
tul distribute them proporly in every!
ounty, that the Press and Banner will |
->ot the bill, if it takes so much money j
o Induce the Committee to treat us fairly.}
tight, Conscience and Good Judgment;
to he Goyerued by Majorities.
Our friend and neighbor, the editor of
he A nderson Intelligencer makes a reaarkablo
statement in his article which
nay L*e found in another nart of the
iruu uiv -me ran J I"
Last Winter in deferenco to the wishes
of a few prominent gentlemen, (who, we
hope, were not seeking cheap immortality
in tho matter of new counties,) the
Democratic members of tho Legislature
met in secret caucus, and without respect
to the wishes of their constituents, and i
by a vote of the majority of that dark J
meeting, bound tho minority to remain
silent when the question should come up
in the Legislature. The Constitutional
amendments it was pretended at the time
should bo fairly submitted to the people.
Hut now the "State Democratic Executive
Committee regard the amendment
as a party measure." What we want to
know is, who arc the "party?" Is it
these three or fuur very wise gentlemen,
who would not have counties named for
them, or, is it the Executive Committee?
The "party" referred to are certainly not
the people of the Stato. In proof of this
it is certain that the "party" is throwing
every obstacle in the way of the people
who are under a normal condition of affairs,
supposed to be at least a part of the
Democratic part}'.
As to Independents.
We think there need be no lear of In- j
dependents at this electiou. The history'
of all men who quit the Democrats to go
with the Republicans, and tho remembrance
of tho present position of those
who left tho Republican party to help us,
will surely be enough to restrain any Independent
from coming out at this time.
Even if the Independent should be elected,
he will bo laid aside after the expiration
of hts term, an outcast and an alien
from decent society. People sometimes
love the treason, but they always have a
<;< ntompt for the traitor.
If the opening of tho State University
docs nothing more than to stimulate the
different churches to renewed effort to
build up and improve their peculiar institutions,
the benetit to the country will
be incalculable.
Lkt every man constitute Vnmself a
committee to push forward some institution
of learnings by doing what he can
for it. and not devote himself to pulling
down- other institutions. It is easy to
putt down but hard to build up.

i Chatties, and the question of creating Iltiy
new counties in theUtate, whether a incjorl-|
ty ol' the people doslre them or not. in begin- j
ning to bo viewed by the press with the He-1
; rious consideration it demands?a question
involving as it does so many points affecting
the material and political welfare of the
[State. The question is not wiewed with
favor by a large portion of the press, and as
has been truly remarked, simply liceausc Democratic
Legislature submitted the proposition
to be voted upon itiloo-* not lot low that
that it must be voted affirmatively as a purely
Democratic measure. The presumption is
reasonable that Democratic Senators and
Itcpresentativcs til the last (Jenoral Assembly
voted in favorof submitting the proposed !
amendment to the people, when at the same!
time the members themselves were oposed to
to tiie anoption of the nmsndment. How j
many many there are of this opinion we do;
not know; but it is talr to presume theifi'
w^re some; and again It is eminently proper;
to remember that the queslIon was engineered
Ilirough a special session, hastily conven-j
eil for an.ither purpose, the members hurrying
through with the business before them,!
that they might return to their homes. Atl
the regular session, when the members were)
working deliberately, and when, perhaps, no;
undue outside influence was brougiit to bear'
upon them by wire pullers and tricksters (we |
do not mean to impute the money potency of .
a lob.v) the proposition as submitted by lh.;|
joint commission, was rejected, it would j
have met. a similar fate, we doubt not, had it j
been again brought before a regular session ;
ol thosame men Iters?or even if there bad
been more time at the disposal of the dlspo-j
sal of the special session.
Democratic voters should remember that,
the question Is not one implying an affirmative
vote from Democrats sltiiply because aj
Democratic Legislature submitted it and;
they hesitate long before voting IV.v upon it; j
and we are glad to be able to state, on an an- j
thorlty of Col. Ixlar hlmsslf, as will be seen i
from his letter published at the of this eol-j
until, that contrary to the practice heretofore]
with the Democratic KxeutiveCommittee, on I
on questions of this nature, voters will fur-|
nished the opportunity to vote 011 citneri
side.
We print, to-day several appointed edtorials j
from the Abbeviilo IVcxi anil Ilannrr, showing
the fallacy of this movement, and we In- |
vito our readers to give then) u careful p?-r- j
nsiil, also tiie following from tho Walhallal
Outlier. Afterqtioting a portion a portion of
tho speech deli vered by Senator hart at Hickory
Orove with such "surprising" cfl'ect the
(Vmnvr says:
Viewing tills amendment in n political light
are not these views of a Senator who ought
to know the motives of tin*amendment, both
sound and sensible, and (io they not demonstrate
that ifatiy people under the sun (should
oppose it. those of tho upper enmities should, j
both forlhe sake of good government and for
Ibesake oakd of preserving their present influenceln
the General Assembly? Are they
not facts which cannot be denied or controverted?
Do our people desire not only to put
It in the power of the lower counties to Increase
the negro counties of the Slate, but
[also totakeawuy Iroui us any '.ntluencc in
legislation? It is tha height of folly to suppose
the smaller and less populous upper
counties only be divided and the largo connties
of the seacoast left as they are. Local
consideration will govern there as here
and rival communities there as here will
will strive for thecouri house town.
We see Seneca City and i'endleton each looking
for a court house, and so will it be with
towns below. We did not Jump the question,
as our correspondent "S" insinuates. We
thonfht. and talked of the very point "S"
makes, but to us it appeared so absurd, In
I view of the large and populous counties

sucli a reason. We can hardly nee how any
one can so look at it, and II" our solons passed
the Joint resolution with this view, they
showed as little wisdom as our people once
did in seceding. Preserve the eontroll of the
Senate indeed! It Isa sure step to loovo both
the Senate and the House, as well as our
present up country influence legislation. At
present we have eontroll of both houses and
expect to retain 1l if our people are content to
let well enough alone.
It is useless for us to farther discuss t lie financial
view of dividing counties. Kvry
county is an integral part of the.State and It
is the duty of the State to so protect its in-1
tercsts as that no portion of her people shall
be over burdened with taxes. The counlics
have local governments with some legislative
powers and all those must be provided
for. Every new county calls lor iis new
otllcers doublihg tho expenses. Fifty new
couutles with their 6UU olllcials, their fifty
Senators and their court houses, jails ami
poor farms, would cost a va-t deal of money |
annually. Besides It would take froin Ihej
walks of productive industry UW Intelligent
men, who, instead of adding to the wealth ofihe
State, would create nothing but simply
suck the public teat. Is this wise, aspeeially
at this time? That government is the best
and that State is the best governed which employs
as few but perfectly competent men, to
run the government as are required to do so. |
With this wiew counties should be as largo as
consistent with tho oonveulenee of .tlie people,
both to secure good and competent otllcers
and have as few of them ns possible consistent
with the prompt administration of the
laws. We have shown our county is small
enough and that, the people would not be
convenieneed by dividing it and we again advise
all our readers to voto agninst the
amendment as a state measure and tor the
interests of the w hie State. .
{Anderson IiUclligcncrr.]
Among the Constitutional Amendments
submitted by the last legislature to the peopleof
the.'State for theiradoptlon or rejection,
Is one relative to the formation of new t'ountles,
and as numerous enquiries have been
made of us concerning the pusposcs and the
etfectofthls amendment we propose, without
espousing cither side of the quest ton, to
give the views of both parties, as far as wo
we know them, in order that the people may
properly understand tho vote they are culled
upon to cast. The Constitution as it now
stands forbidden the formation of new County
ot an area less than six hundred and twenty-five
square miles, orif arranged in asquare,
of twnnfl'.flvn cnnni'n mllue *??
amendment proposed allows the formation of
new Counties with an area of four hundred
square miles, or arranged in a square, of
twenty in lies to each side, provided that no
new County shall bo formed with a population
of less than one-hundred ami twentylourtti
part of the population of ths .state.
The new arrangement proposes to reduce by
more than one-tlilrd the area at present required.
Tne flfiends of the proposed change
claim that by the formation of new Counties
In the Democratic portions of South Carolina,
lliey will be en id bed to make the Senate
secure to the Democrats for many years to
come. They also claim that the building of
new Court Houses will develop the property
of theqstate, give new impulse to and create
new centres of business, build up aditloual
educational and political centres of Influence
and promote the convenience of the people.
They argue with much force of the trouble
and Inconvenience of persons living from
twenty to thirty miles fsom the Court Il<>u-e
having to make this long trip every lime they
wanttoseeu pudllc oineer or consu t their
lawyer. They ciolm that having a Court
House nearrer to oil parts of the County will
save the people remote from those now erected
a great deal of time, which is equal to no
luconsidcrable sum of money. We believe,
however, that they claim the political t'.uvantage
of buing able to creato new Democratic
Counties as the great reason foe the change
they propose.
Theodponeutsof thennsendment iiiFlst that
the political advantages arc not so certain, as
a mojority of the, sections now seeking for
new Counties yiiil contain a larger colored
than while - population. The low-country
has more.Uftritory thau the up-country and
chnseoviently can make more new Counties,
and experience has shown that they are slow
t j give any advantage they psess; and
lieuce the opponents of the umcditment predict
that there will be more new Counties
made below than above Columbia, and thai
the tendency will be to Increase the danger of
losing the .Senate. They also say that an increase
of the Counties will be necessitate
more Connty treasurers, auditors, clerks,
sheriff, County Commlssioneas Ac. That
there will be more Courts, and hence more
Judges, and the expenses of County government
will be greatly increased. They think
that dividing up the Counties will tend to
hi ll/l i.r> cm,.II
lew largo ones, so that really the commercial
development of the State will be impeded
Instead of advanced. They point to the experience
of (ieor"ia, where their new Constitution
prohlbltsthe inakingof new counties,and
they claim tbatsmali Counties tend to produce
family feuds, an intluence that is hurtful instead
of beneficial. They admit some of the
inconveniences of lar^e Counties, bo contend
that, taking everythlnu Into consideration,
the present area Is greatly preferable to the reduction
proposed.
In the last Legislature the editor of the
IntclHgeiiccr, as n member of that boily, voted
nguinst the amendment; it lias, however,
been submitted to the people of tin* Htalc, and
and in the next Legislature wo hold thai the
delegation from this County should vote tor
L>r aualnst ratitvinir this amendment. accord
Ina to the result from the election on that
question in this County. If u majority of tin:
people of tliiK County vote for the amendment,
the delegation vote for it, and if a majority
voteagainst.lt the delegation should do
so also. Therefore our people should think
the matter over and vote as their judgemeht
tells them is best tor the* County aud lor the
(State.
[Kcowee Courier.]
We see frotn tlie Abbeville Press and Banner
that the state Kxecutlve Committee of the
Democratic party propose to print thetiekels
lor the general election with the word "Yes"
opposite to each of the three constitutional
amendments. If such be the case the committee
do not rellect the sentiment of the people
of this county, and, in our opinion, of the
state, nor will such action on their part give
the voter a fair chance. A matter affecting
the bulwark of our liberties Is loo Important
for a few men to stereotype, as it were, the
opinions of our people, what do the memheis
of that committee know of the wishes of
the people on these questions, and not knowing
them, what righl have they to send out
tlckcts tilled out on these grave question*?
We can tell them we do not believe tliat twenty-five
Democrats in tills county favor the
iimcndmeut proposing to reduce the area of
the counties of the State. Do they intend or
hope to carry this measure by the oversight
or Ignorance or a large number or voters? ir
so, Ihey a 10 widely mistaken, for our good
people will feel It their duty to suppress such
tickets before tlicy are voted. We want none '
or your tickets If, our sole and whole prl vllejje
consists In putting Into a box a vote prepared
for us In Charleston or Columbia. We
lavor the amendments disfranchising voters
i>n conviction of certain crimes, and also separating
the Ktuto and national elections, but
others uiay differ with us on these amendments,
and they should liavo the privilege of
[*x pressing on their bullotsthelrown opinions
ind not those of the Legislature or Executive
Committee. We oppose reducing theareu of
;ountl?s, but others may favor it, and we
tvant them and not the Executive Committee
to express on t heir ballots their real opinion.
Why submit the question to the people, If the
vote Is to be printed? Leteveiy inan oxer;ise
Ills Judgment and write the Utile word
Yes" or "No" according to his convictions.
When tills is done our liberties will be secure
ind our constitution will be, as It Pas been, a |
protection to us. We hope the committee lias I
lotconm to such a determination as alluded [ a
,o, und If they have, we trust they will reconsider
their action and leave the vote on the!
imendnients open. If this be not done, wo
ivlil have something farther to Euy In behalf
)f ourpeopleand their rights.
[Anderson Journal.]
There Is a very wide dlflereuco of opinion
n the dlU'erenl newspapers In tills .State as to <
idvlsability of adopting the proposed const ituional
amendment authorizing the formation
if new counties with less territoiy than prescribed
In the constitution as it now stands,
Liid in the discussion there has arisen tlie
luestlon as to whether or not the Democratic
itale Executive Com ml lee will allow lor the
iltlernnce of opinion and furnish tickets for
10th afllrniatlve and negative votes. It Is
f.r.ted that this will depend upon the |
irders for tickets by the respective County I
Chairman, but wc are of the opinion that tlie
executive Committee had better furnish an
mplo supply of each to every county or;'
nave the question blank on all the tickets. _
he proposition to amend the constitution

Jewish Marriages.
Formerly, marriages between Jews and
Gentiles were rare, but there are signs
that this cxelustveness is giving away.
The modern Jew is becoming liberalized,
and may soon intermarry with the Gentile.
Tiie great Rothschild family has allied
itself with many noble li aises in
England and Franco. I n the lastaeeounts
from Europe, the betrothal is announced
of Mile. liertha von Rothschild, youngest
daughter of Huron Meyer Charles von
Rothschild, and Prince Alexander von
Wag rain, son of tlio Duke Napoleon von
Wagram, Prince of Ncufehatel, and the
Count ess Zenatda von Clam, nieeo of
King Iiernadotle. The prospective bridegroom
is a brother-in-law of Prince
Joachim Mil rat. The conversion of the
bride to the Christian religion will occur
immediately before the wedding. It was
Fierseeution which made the Jews a pecuiar
people. Great wealth is now theirs,
and thoy may merge their identity with
the rest of the population of this country
and Europe.?Demo rest's Monthly.
A sr.kiiit Mistake.?It is said, with
more truth than pootrj', that mistakes
will occur in the hest regulated families,
and where there are no serious results,
they are usually taken in good part, and
allowed to pass off for what they are
| worth. One of these episodes wheih go
to break the monotony of every day life
j occurred the othervlay on the Sniith Carolina
Railroad. We all know there are
such things as railroad acquaintances
formed for the time to while away the
h"urs of dull and tiresome travel, where
the parties may never meet again, and
never think of the matter afterwards beyond
the purposes it amswered for the
moment.
One of these litllo by plays in the drama
of life, which might have had a romantic
termination, had there not been
insurmountable difficulties in the way,
occurred tlio other day. A gentleman
fiom tiie West met a lady of this city on
the cars, and, as is often tlio case, they
soon found a sparkling acquaintance, and
cue gentleman uecame ueupiy iiubicticu
in his fair companion, and before thoy
parted he hinted that a further acquaintance
would bo agreeable. He received
| no encouragement beyond a sprightly,
agreeable and attractive manner which
! was perfectly natural. The lady, who
was married, doubtless detected his weak
point and in a coy, deferential manner,
encouraged him, or lead him on, just for
the fun of the thing. He asked her
naino, and she cave her maiden name.
Thev parted at JJranchville, he going on
to Charleston, and she coming to Columbia.
Ho wrote to a friend bore to enquire
for the young lady and intercede for him,
or at least to ascertain, if possible, his
chances of succoss, Tho friend addressed
her a lotter in the namo which she
gave her new admirers, proposing an interview,
when tho eyes of both parties
[ were opened to the real condition of the
things, .and the innocent and amusing
llirtation ended.?Palmetto Yeoman.
