Cumulative Voting.
That prospective curso for South Caro
lina, (if adopted,) Cumulative voting, re
ceives a telling stroke of disapproval aud
condemnation from thc Camden Journal
in thc article which we append below, and
to which we invite the attention of the
people of Edgefield. But we are pleased
to siate that the thinking men of our
District are utterly opposed to the move
ment, and will cast their votes accordingly,
if they have an opportunity. No cumu
lative voting for us-not if our remon
strance will prevent it. Read what young
KERSHAW, of the Camden Journal says :
G OMULATIVE VOTIKC-ASTOSITUTE PRO
POSED.
The great respect we entertain for the
gentlemen composing the Tax Payers' Con
vention, has induced us to consider the
subject of cumulative voting as a cure for
our political grievances, but we are com
pelled to admit thaUwe cannot see it in
that hight. If there were in the State
many shades of. opinion and varieties of
inte? ests, separating the people into seve
ral parties^ a representation of each cor
responding to their respective numerical
strength, might accomplish good results
to'minorities, if i combination of two or
moro of. those parties, not the strongest,
.would overcome the strongest ; but hore,
where there are. and can be at present,
but two parties, one of which outnumbers
the other as three to (wo at least, an
agreement on the part of the minority to
be content with only a proportional . rep
resentation, is nothing more or less than a
surrender ta the majority.
We confess we are not willing, being of
? tho minority, to give up the struggle. We
desire, to overcome the majority, and whon
we. get the .control of^ the State we will bo
prepared tb entertain propositions from
the other side looking to the permanency
of the then existing condition of things.
If we ara to form any alliances with those
shrewd gentlemen, who have heretofore
manipulated the. Radical party in tlvs
State,, let'us at least be able'to compre
hend the solid advantages which we are fo
derive from such alliances, and not be
misled by a mf?h. Let the advocates of
this measure show us how we are to gain
anything in the Senate by the cumulative
vote, and how iu-the election , of Governor
and all other Executive officers.
.The truth is, except that we might get
such a minority vote in the House of Rep
resentatives as would prevent the passage
of measures requiring a two-thirds- vote,
we can see no practical advantage in their
results. But it is- not at all certain . that
tjoo sama, result could not be attained by_a
fair and\square party vote. Indeed, wo
have nti-sort of doubt of it. But, we
wahdp^?nto th* .next State canvas, tc
vjif iMlwJ'or the supremacy .bf ?io^es
Ty, decency, .fair dealing, retrenchment and
reform. How is that to be done? We
admit it depends upon the colored people.
They alone can change the government ol
this State fbr the better through the bal
lot box. .They have experienced some of
tho evjjs of attempting to rule the ."State
withoutconsidering the interests or heed
ing the counsels of those who really con
stitute AeTnost important part of society.
Perhaps th%y may be now inclined to hear
those arguments "which thev spurned last
year. If BO. we would gladly aid them in
establishing a "better government. But,
any movement of this sort must come
from them: Our people will probably
never :again be induced'to go them with
overtures like those'rejected last year. As
good government, however, is our prime
nccessity','*w'e. doubt not Che ' acceptance
of any proposals coming from the other
side-giving promise of success, and upon
principles Dy which we can stand. As to
these, there can be but little trouble, since
ii is apparent that the National Demo
cracy will erect a platform on those ques
tions broad enough for all reasonable men
to stand upon. Still, we do not see, as
yet, any signs of that awakening of the
colored people to the necessity of concilla
ron which must form the "basis of any
c imbination between us. We do net
greatly hope to accomplish a victory with
out such combination, but arc willing'j
and prefer, ;o fight a square out and out
] ?emoeratie jutvty fight, to allowing the
lladicals to walk imo power withouttroub
l?\ Then- is something healthy in a strug
gle for thc right, even when we are beat
en; and. on the other ha il, a supine' sub
mission to wrong is enervating and cor
rupting. We believe there should now be
;;u organization of the Democratic party,
'?ompletc and thorough. We . are willing
to snape cur policy to the views pf a Con
vention of: that partv, properly organized.
J f that party should de??rmin'e to make
any compromises willi the colored people
from motives of .^tate politv, wc desire to
? ubmit an alternative basis of combina
tion to that of the cumulative vote, which
contents itself with a simple' proportional
numerical:'representation, and leaves no
room for expansion of the party -or the
.i.xcrcido .of th'oso powers which are the
fruits of intelligence, education, knowl
edge, experience and wealth. This sub
stitute we will announce hereafter.

I sit down, my dear old ;pattgr in the
midst of the most fiery and raging heat
I have experiencedv^s sujHflWtbwrf^
vou a sort of a letter." It nrutklbe short,
however, and very hig||edy-piggledy,
for I have been herc but one day; and
have as yet seen but little and heard
nothing. And.besides^-although as dry
and bony as Romeo's apothecary-I am
a constantly oozing sponge, and am " as
water spilt upon the ground that cannot

men and children are sighing to read
their title clear to an ice hut at the North
Pole.
But ?*top. What loyal Edgefleld mari
travels from Dan to Beersheba (the, Court
House to Ninety-Six) without drawing a*
picture of the crops ? Well, starting at
1 o'clock at night, we could see but little
until we reached' Mr." GEORGE STJROTH
KR'S. ; And from this point to Ninety
Six the growing stuff looks badly enough,
we can "assure you-poor cotton, and still
poorer corn. All this stre?oh of country
seems to have saffered severely jfroin
drought. On the large and splendid
plantation of the late Mrs. WHITFIELD
BROOKS, through which we drove, the
thoroughly blighted corn,, and almost
as thoroughly blighted cotton, presented
really a pitiable spectacle. On tho next
plantation eil route, Genl.DUNOVANT'S,
the crops looked somewhatbetter. While
on the next, Major GEORGE ADDISON'S,;

Arriving at Ninety-Six three solid
hours in advance of thc 'cars (they pass;

notwithstanding that our kind friend,
Mr. DICK SANDERS, took us all into his
store, and washed us, and ministered tv
us. After this- Samaritan conduct on
the part of DICK, WO stretched'out under;

voice, assuring a stout and resolutedook
ing gentleman that they were .newspa
per women, that 'they were used to all
the newspapers in the world, and enjoy
ed all newspaper privileges' without
money and without price. To our in
finite amusement and alarm, we found'
they were in the fangs of an.agenJof the
Atlanta Sun, ALEXANDER STEPHENS'
paper, who was about to make them sub
scribe at the point of the bayonet. Upon
this we turned our face to tho tree and
drew our last breath. We never expect,
to smile again. To start off on a sum

Up to Greenville by rail, was hot, dus
ty and uneventful. An elegant hew
coach, a Northern son bf President BUSH
for conductor, a good many passengers,
young men in linen dusters, and ladies
hr hideous bought drosses, very slow
traveling, gazing out at the new telegraph
posts, nice ice cream, and miserable
peachos, were the salient - Mints. ? At Wil
lianuston, which is a beautiful place, we
espied a considerable crowd on the pla!?- j
form. When we drew nigh, we were j
indiginmt to rind most of the gazers ne- j
gro women, with veils on their.heads,,
and but little else on their bodies. By
the-by, a veil is a very good costume for
this sort of wcathear- %
We have not visited Greenville in eight
years before, and in this time the town
has grown and spred. very much. But
we have not seen, it.fiiirly?yet. .We must
per force, send you a letter by to-mor
row's mail. Otherwise, as there is no i
Sunday train on the Greenville and Co- j
lumbia Railroad, it would notrea?byou
intime. Thc suburbs of Greenville are
beautiful. The country around is beau
tiful. In fact Greenville is, and always
was, beautiful.
There arc many strangers here, and ho
tels and boarding houses arc full without
being uncomfortably' crowded. Latein
the afternoon, when people make them
selves spruce and walk and drive in all
directions, the scene is very lively. The
only compatriot we have m?t-and
very pleasant oneh? is-is. Capt. GEO.
LAKE, who is here carrying tho war (the
Universal Life Insurance Company) into
Africa. He and his amiable lady aro at
tho Mansion House, the headquarters of j
fashion and bustle. And speaking ol
fashion, we have as yet met with no case
of-'" arsenical poisoning" as thc newspa
pers h ivo it. For does not poisoning
sf?cm to be the fashion ot' the day?. But
until the Yankee womoa begin, to cat
and drink with us we have but little to

Thc Cotton States ?MCchanics* and
Agricultural Fair.
. Dr. WM. H. Terr, President, in form>
us t?at the second grand Annual Fair ol
the Cotton States Mechanics' and Agri
cultural Fair Association, of Augusta,
Ga., commences Tuesday, October 31st,
and will continue for five days.
The President writes us as follows:
." Our exhibition this year will b'e on a
much moro extensive scale than that ol
1870. We are prepared with the best ar
ranged and most beautiful Fair Ground*
in tlie South, to offer to Visitors and Ex
hibitors all possible inducements for in
struction and display. Our object is to
establish our Association as a Cotton
States Institution-not confined to any
soction fi its aims-and for this purpos'e
we are substantially aided and sustained
by the Capitalists, Agriculturists and
Manufacturers of our section."
We have also glanced over the sched
ule of Premiums and Regulation's of the
Association, and are more than pleased
with the long list of extremely liberal
Premiums to be distributed, and the
excellent regulations for\;onducting the
Fair. 'We anticipate for this grand Fair
a grand success-ar d would advise ail
Edgefield to make their arrangements to
attend en masse.
The Association has invested some
Fifteen 'Thousand Dollars in' Premiums,
and in relation to this appropriation the
Augusta Chronicle & Sentinel says :
Tho contract for the medals and plate
to be given at the October exhibition of |
the Cotton States M. <fc A. Fair Associa
tion has been awarded to Messrs. F. A.
Brahe <fe Co., of this city. I. . ' .
The contract amounts to about the sum ?
of fourteen thousand dollars and amongst I
the bidders were several well-known
dealers aud manufacturers from New
York and Philadelphia. The best artis
tic skill that tho country can. afford will
be displayed in the designs bf the med
als ana plate. We congratulate our home
jewelers in receiving this contract, which
was awarded solely on the basis of merit j
and ocoriomy.
