Pol. J. T. Robertson Is si ill feeble from the
*?'.ta?'kof apoplexy which he had In Columbia |
h'nmc weeks ago. As reported In these col- j
ninns two weeks ago, he had so far recovered
as to be able to sit on the piazza. The fatigue
of the effort save him a backset front which |
he recovered but slowly until lie was able aj

Original Poetry.
We are in receipt of some beautiful verses,
which we arc requested to publish, but we
Invc long since adopted th ? rule not to publish
original poefry, although we may hare
made occasional exceptions. In this case the
merit of the piece strongly tempts us to break
our rule, but we hoi>e that the author will excuse
us, Under the rule some good poetry is
kept from the public eye, b jt we are saved the
disagreeable necessity of drawing the line,

The Jackson C?s?.
The conviction of Mr. Jackson, of Augnstn,'
on a charge or stealing money entmst-d to'
his enre, carries with it a sense of profound
regret. Mr. Jackson was honored an.I trust-!
<rd. ami for this reason had the opportunity to
commit the crime for which lie is sentenced
to the penitentiary. His responsibility is
infinitely greater than that of the sneak thief, i
or of the foot, pad, from whom, by reason of;
their needs and their associations, little of;
good Is expected. While, therefore, tiie conviction
of Mr. Jackson must move every one \
to a feeling or profound regrct.it is regret be- i
cause one who stood so liitrli has fallen, and
not because a Just punishment is!o he meted
out to the offender.?.Wirt <t>id Ojuricr.
Small (irnia.
The oat crop in this county, may be set
down as little belter than a failure. The.
grain Is heading very near to they round, and !
a great deal of It is too lo?v to he cut. Many
farmers will make but little more than the
feed which thev sowed last fall. The spring;
oats will not amount lo mncli.
The wheat crop is also short, but is better !
than the oat crop.
The area which was sown In barley and rve!
is exccedinzly small, our people have cot]
their cattle and horses so well accustomed to j

that they noeil nothing now hut a low hits of j

that the word through is used it is spelled thru, i,

As Ins been the custom for a nntnbor of.(
years, 1'rof. Hood took the junior c'a*s on!
thelratinitul botanical excursion last Friday.!
The objective point was Krwln's Mill on the,'
Saluda. The excursion was a little earlier 1
this year than usual, owing loan Invitation |
by the Temperance Iiivision of llonca Path :'
for him and the class to join the division in a j *
picnic party on the river, the 1 >th. For sever- ,
ill days before Hie appointed time a great Ural 1
could be hciird among the expectants about [
tlie line flowers that would be seen, anil the;'
fish that might probably be caught that didj
not live tn the river. <?n their return Saturday
afternoon they report all anticipations
more than realized. The picnic soems to have j
been quite a success. A number of speeches j
were mad", n nd no doubt some con tinned in;
habits o! sobriety, and others strengthened in j
their resolves to forsake the Inebriates cup. j
The division is earnest In its work, and Is j
doubtless accomplishing a reiormation. The
excursionists are loud i:i praises of the (rood
order, good dinner and prettv ladies. As Is
the case on all such excursions, the party re-j
turns delighted, not only with the trip, but:
with the uhboundrd hospitality ot Mr. Knvin
and his family. .Matters of camp comfort ami
necessity that may have been forgotten
or overlooked by the inexperience of the ex-'
cu'sionists arc supplied by Mrs. Knvin as
soon as known, and many things anticipated (
that no one can tell how she tinds out. If '
these young gentlemen have any poetic veins ! <
in them, would not I like to toss the papers j
over on their tallies In a day or two? \\ hat |
dulcet rhymes might be found to "The Water Falls,""'i'he
Klver's Hanks," "The Fair l'ie- j
nicer," and it may be a sonnet to the name {
that will rhyme with valle.v, and a stanza i
with lines jingling with rill, mill and liiil.!
A pleasant relaxation it is for the class to get
oil once in a course over hill and hollow, tield
and meadow on these charming rambles*

Ktlilor Pre* and thinner: j'
We were proud indeed to rc?.l the "strong J
communication" in last week's issue against; 1
the "monstrous tax" t<> build the Carolina, >
Cumberland (lap and Chicago Railroad. j j
(jiciiitiue Itaitle. | '
Really the article had the genuine rattle i
about it, and was powerful enough to earry , (
conviction to any unbnis>'d mind of the id>
surd folly of sueli an imposition upon tiie tax- j \
ridden people. |
We assert that any voter In Abbeville town- {
ship will be benefitted by reading the com-it
munieation, and we do lutpe it will have the t
ell'eet of opening our eyes to the great dauger |
ahead. ] f
How Can we I'a.V u Tax? I1
It l? an e:isy mailer to vote a tax, but to pay .
it i? distressing in many instances, especially i {
double taxes?yen, fearful. ; j
Object oflhe Tax. , i
Wc quote Col. A. C. ll-isk<*ll, President of J
the ('olumhla and (ireenviile II?ad and mhoI Ii- ;'
cr monopoly on this matt'.T, who savs thiitjj
'Towns and villages on linos of railroads.'
commit a groat error when expending largo j1
sums, or voting taxes on themselves, to build 1
new roads when they already have sulliciciu I
railroad facilities."
Col. Ha>ke!l has been placed high in railroad
circles, and is therefore aide to advise us,'
and perhaps wo had better stop and think jJ
seriously before voting, (if course our object \.
is to cut our way out of our sunken condition, J
but after reading last week's communication r
and learning Col. Haskell's views, we now {
think that. t'? vote a tax for the Carolina, J
Cumberland Gap and Chicago nonsense will J
hurry up aqulckcrand surer death.
The Itoutc Propose*!.
The route proposed by way of Allton, East r
and North, and through tunnels and over *
mountains and gorges. West, will never do- i
liver lis from our bondage. This proposed, (
route will start at no point to give us reduced |t
freights, much loss a reduction of passenger! I
fare. Great Britain may fnrnlsh a few liun- 11
dred thousand dollars ei?riy In the work, in I
order tosecure thvposition.*, hut we may dread 1
these Greeks hearing gifts. The poor man J
had better make '"ea-y places" for biinself In-!.
stead of "Palace cars" lor blood and )tohilU>/. <
We deprecate such sentiment, but now see;'
the tendency of drifting man touvre. Voters!!
beware! beware!
Tin- Way out of our Trouble.
While we are no champion of Greenwood, |
we claim to be a sensible man, anil now ad-:
vise the voters of Abbeville Township to
think about putting their tax money In going
to that point.
We again refer to Col. Haskell who said?
"Greenwood on account of Its eligible location
must become a strong point"?then why
not go there and let our tax ridden people
have a quid pro quo for their hard earned
Greenwood Koute.
We will present the ail vantages of the flrcenwooil
route next week,and hope your readers,
will hear us for our cause.
Let us also thank you for your manly pnd j
bold effort to save us from ruin, ruin, ruin. We
know your every thought in this matter is'
actuated by the sublimest motive and purest
patriotism. 1'. T. L.

xpressed in Abbeville that the Columbia*

liscontlnue the trains over tlic Abbeville i

i"as built to Abbeville, and you ask whether j
here is any ground fur such fear.
I answer, that no such course has ever been j
Ubmlttcd to our direction, and it would be '
ircmature for me to express an opinion as to|
vhat t heir action may be. I must say, how-]
(ver, that as the Abbeville branch does not t
tow pay expenses Incident to the running of I

iceessity be much reduced if its business is '

YO'.i ai-k my further views with regard to
iiiildliig railroads by taxation. I can L'ivc|
on but a summary of what I said at Lauren*;
n 1SS7:
1st. That it is unwise, because the State has 1
11 ready buried too much capital in railroads |
I'lic lines now in oneratlon can carrv flvei
tines the freight and travel tlie country is 11
io\v supplying. Tlio rales can only l?c re- j |
lueed in proportion as tiie population and L
iroduction increase and give more business,, j
A-tiieli win bring into play the capital which j,
s now deatl. i
I'd. 1 have always entertained the opinion
hat town, county or township taxation for!,
,Ills purpose Is unconstitutioiiafiand that the
legislation to that end is a palpable churl to
vadc the provisions of our Slute Cunstltuion.
:'.d. Kven if the measure Is not in words proliidted
by our ('onstituiion. it Is directly op>osed
to the fundamental principles of a,
democratic form of government, and is now,
icuvily oppressing sonic of the best counties:
nthe State. Knllroads are like every other j
iraiich of business. 'J'iiey ought not. to be;
milt unless they will pay, and the best rule]
s to let private individuals risk their own:
ncansand not get. it from the people by taxalon.

There Is perhaps no "country" Institute In
?outh Carolina, so well known as this, and
ret It Is Jusl about to celebrate the first deeaile
if lis existence. It was begun on tlio small
apltal of tlfty cents?the gilt of an orphan
?oy, but from that original fifty-cent piece it
ius grown until lis buildings are now the
nost prominent mark in the landscape of I he
,Milage of (.'Union, South Carolina, where the
Institution Is located. In these ten years
nany orphans have enjoyed its fostering esire
tnd a family of fifty is now sheltered beneath
is roof.
An ample fiirm of 12.">neres furnishes all the
Irownnil. nnstiirnirn. viMfi-tjihliXi. unit n tvirt of
,lie support. A large stone dwelling?the first
louse erected, conluins the girls, and "Faith
L'ottage" a neat concrete building Is the home
if the hoys. The school Is domiciled in n
landsoine house recently erected at a cost of
! '),(sod. Tfiere is also a solidly built house for
:he culinary and laundry 'work. Near by, a
new cottagc for another family of orphan
joys Is in process of erection.
The maintenance of this work exclusive of
[he buildings requires an nnnual outlay of!
\boutS3,500, and the mystery Is as to where
t comes front. As only poor children are rc-j
L-clved, there is no income from tuition ori
Lioard?the large majority of tlie orphans arc |
->C too tender an age to be able to do much to- j
w ards their own support. The older ones can i
.lo little more than to do all the cooking, ironing,
sewing, Ac.. for the establishment. This
lhoy do, runt fey do it with great regularity j

The President of tlie Institution tells us that,
"the Lord provides" for them, but the Lord

In oue of the colored churches in this city
something of a turmoil has lately been raised
aver the movement ou part of some ot the
members fora division 01 the membership on
Lhe .colored line. The project Is one of the
most remarkable that we have yet heard of,
Its aim being to separate the b'aelc skins from
the mulattocs, the ebon hucddesiring lo have
ii congregation all to themselves, anil the mulattocs
expressing a similar desire on their
nwn part. The subject wasdiscussed in a congregational
mcctinga day or so ago,and while
r?icli rmrlv vi*n? u-illimr fill* n (llviwimi tlio'
terms could not ho well agreed on. 'J'lie inln-!
Ister Is black sklntn d, and naturally enough !
the black skins laid their claim to him. In ad- I
lltion to the church and church fnrnlturo.!
Another trouble was the fact that some of tlie,
black skinned men hail mulatto wives ami ]
some or the black skinned women had tnulat-1
to husbands, and how to apportion them In
the proposed division was a subject that ere* j
uted a gooil deal of unsatisfactory discussion.
Hie dllllculty seems to be Insurmountable,
but both tactions are determined upon adlvls-j
Ion, and It Is believed that the Synod will
liavo to be callcd upon to act as a board of ar-1
Ditratlon. A thirddillleuity Inthewayof the;
proposed division lies In the I'acL that a smalli
portion of I he congregation iir(, neither blacks
;>r mulattoes, but come between the two, and
If the proposed color line Is stiictly drawn,I
they will have to be left entirely out In the
colli, and will have to seek soine other taber-i
nablc wherein such elevated ideas in regard
to tone and color do not prevail.
