[Great applause.] iltu-ace Greeley Accepts the- Demo cratic Nomination. NEW YORK, July 12: The committee appointee] by the Balti more Convention to communicate to Mr. Greeley his nomination, consisting of ex Senator Doolittle, of Wisconsin; .Tamos S. Thayer, of Now York ; Judge Abbott, of Massachusetts : James Chesnut, of Sooth Carolina ; John C. Burch, of Ten nessee, and A. A. Miller, of- Illinois,, ar rived at the Fifth avenue Hotel, every member being present. Roon after twelve o'clock the committee proceeded to the Lincoln Club room to meet Mr. Greel-jy. who was preseut with two or tlire? friends'?5 receive them. Sen ator Doolittle, addressing Mr. Greeley, said the National' Democratic Convention had devolved upon thc committee now present the pleasing duty to wait, upon him in person to notify him of bis unanii mous nomination for the Presidency by that convention, the official n?tificatiop of | which h? 'now ' presented to bim.' 'The published report of the proceedings show ed that there was great unanimity,, but j only those .who took part in them had any idea of the enthusiasm with which it was determined to sustain the Liberal repub lican movement, a'r.d to support the prin ciples contained in the Cincinnati plat form, and they felt that thc surest means of doing so was to nominate and elect the same candidates. The senator...th?p .in troduced each member of tne committee 'to Mr.,firceley. who, after a cordial greet ing replied to the announcement. . Gree ley said that perhaps it needed more time and consideration before replying*fully to such.an important communicatioa. It may bc 'that ha should, have replied ia witing, but, inasmuch as he had address - ed a letter to a committee of another con vention which had been extensively pub lished, perhaps it was not necessary that he should, at this time, make a formal and full reilly. Ho "accepted the nomination-," he paid, and? " with more pleasure from, the/gratifying spirit with which it was. .resented." His " position* was a proud one, and it was nevertheless an. embar rassing one, but lie trusted this embarrass ment was only temporary, It subjected hitnttto misconstruction on tho. part of'val ned and life-long- friends,-but he'was as sured'that tinte only was necessary to vindicate his motives, and the^disinter-, ested and patriotic course he had deter mined.tp pursue before he received such hearty co-operation, while you," said Mr. Gr?il?v " in making this nomination are [notless Democratic, but even more so than had you taken the opposite course. 1, j in accepting rt, was as much a Piepublican as I ever was.'- [Applause.] " He was not flinch accustomed, he said, to receive nominations for President ; if he ba l been, probable- he should have responded more fitly This was all he had to say, except j to ihvire'the members of the committee, or aa many of them as could make it con venient, to visit hun at his farm at Chap paqua. He could assure them of a warra wefcome. He should be there to-morrow, and they could' then consult and confer more freeley than at this time." . The committee ' then withdrew, and . Greeley made & brief visit to the national committee of the Liberal Republicans. Movement of South Carolina Bond Owners. NEW Youie, July ll.-An adjourned meeting of tho South Carolina bond-hol- ! flers was held 'te-day. The object of the meeting was to take concerted and imme diate action to compel the payment of ac crued and unpaid interest on the bonds >f that State. The . meeting was much arger in numbers than the ono previously held-not less than 8400,000 of bonds be ing represented. The folio > ing resolution ' ivas presented : Resolved, That a committee of tb ree I persons, to consist of E. A. Quintard, .E. B. Weary and A. A. Drake, be appointed to solicit the co-operation of the owners and holders of bonds pf the State of South Carolina in the attempt to coller, past 'lue coupons, with authority to engage counsel to commence regal proceedings against the officers' of the State or its le gal financial board. Also, to raise funds hy subscription to promote such proceed ings without delay. Be it jurtlter resoleqd, That all parties interested be earnestly requested to as sist said committee by as carly subscrip tion as possible. A substitute offered clothes the com mittee only with power to confer with bondholders not herc present, and farther, that tho Chair appoint the committee, himself to b>' a member. The substitute prevailed. The cumuli! tve was authorized lo col lect subscriptions, for h-g*M expel., es. On motion, the committee was further umpowored to employ eminent counsel, '?'lier which the meeting adjourned till Thursday next. ' ISTJMWATIOS IS Noi:TlI C.\?ol.IN.\.

A week ago the actual endorsement of the Cincinnati nomination and platform by the Baltimore .Convention,, was an nounced to the public of this great and expectant country. Our columns this woek.aro full of details of the momentous meeting of the national Democrats The vote by which Greeley was nominated was 68G against 3$ scattering. Tho plat form'was adopted'by 070 to 02. And now that tho Democracy of the country have said that Greeley and Brown are the men to lead us on to victory over the heretofore.invincible legions of the .despot Grant, wc may, with redoubled zeal and vigor, join hands for the great struggle, and vie with each other in our efforts to break down the centralized des I potism at Washington^ A century of I possible despotism- perhaps an eternity of crime and wrong-will be avoided by the glorious *vork o'f the late Convention, for we feel that Ave shall Win the fight in November-because the peoplo of the whole land arc in arms oh the side of j truth and right. - The Candidates ?of ih? Uoi'nbl?ed lib eral-Republicans and Democrats need no introduction. For threo months- they have stood before tho country"and been thoroughly winnowed and sifted. Their nomination, and thc unanimity and.cor diality wjtii which ?it Was made, and af terwards endorsed, givo confident assu rance of their election. And their elec tion gives cpnfidcntassuran?e of a return to Constitutional Government. And a return to Constitutional Government, in which the,ci,\*il law and.an honest un partisan administration of justice shall preyaii", gives confident assurant J that tho outrages"that have been for sdjdong a time inflicted. upon our people through cor nipt Federal Judges', packed Federal I j^ies, lying Federal spies, and lawless Federal Marshals; will come suddenly to an end, and that peace, plenty and pros perity'will once more bless our land.

From Alabama, up to the'loth, we learn that the recen* rains have caused the overflow of the Alabama river and its tributaries, tearing up railroad tracks and.destroying the cotton and corn ?-ops to the value of ?1,000,000 or more, The ravages of the caterpillars continue. The winding boll-worm is a!so appearing in certain localities. The Charleston News, of the 15th, says: 'Private advices continue to. report the presence of the worm in greater or less numbers generally along the . Carolina coast." Under the head ol'"Spreading," the Eufaula (Ala.) Times, of the 9th instant, says: "Recent advices from Jackson County, Florida, and from the lower part of Henry County, Alabama, establish the fact that the cotton caterpillar is to be seen on most of the plantations on the rivef in increased and rapidly increasing numbers. They aro to be found in the web and from that to full grown, with all the intermediate ages. They do not cou line themselves to the Alabama and Florida side ol' thc river, but crops on the Georgia shore are equally ravaged. Near and below Gordon, in this S.tate, some of the fields are reported riddled already. A very short while since scarcely longer than a few days-the prospect was nevermore flattering. Now from all rich lau^s, where the growth is rapid and tho weed large and tender, we have accounts of this fearful bliglit. Tho caterpillar is said to be destroying the crop in Sabine and Liberty counties, Texas, and it is feared that the rains now falling there will develop the caterpillar rapidly in many portionsof the'Srate. In Louisiana, on thc Red River, the . cotton worm has put in an appearance, md great damage is apprehended. The Status of thc Treaty. In the midst of thc fast rising excite ment cojlscimeut - upon tho.' rapidly-ap proaching State and National elections, thc Treaty between England and the United States ba's been well nigh forgot ten. * It will bc remembered (hat sonic three <>r lour weeks auo, Ul!? Treaty was in danger of being broken oil', owing to American persistence (thu arrogance mid inefficiency*of Grant ami Iiis Secretary of Stale, Fish,) in exacting a settlement on tlie basis Ot* ?ntliiieet damages. Um matters have beeil considerably straight ened out-by the backing down ol' Grant and Fish !-and tho Treaty is now ami cably proceeding. The Board ol' Arbi trators threw out the indirect claims al together, and thc American government having virtually abandoned them In the new supplementary treaty, lhere was no ground uplm which there could arise another serious hitch in tlie negotiations. And so they proceed on thu busis/mly ot the direct claims.

There was a grand Radical glorifie, tion at Chester on the 4th, and at th glorification Judge Mackey-the illustr ous Thomas Jefferson Mackey-was tl orator ol'the day, and in tlie course i his speech, we learn through the Chestt Reporter, the Judge talked thusly: Alter the usual and always proper Iril ute to the memory of the fathers of th I Revolution, and amid numerous laud; j lions of " tho old flag," he proceeded I ilenoiu.. in the strongest terms (he inf; inous corruptions and villainies of on present State government, and urge upon his colored auditors the n'ecossit of prompt and thorough reform. He said to them that in a recent con vernation with President Grant, the Pres: dent told him to say to the Republican of South Carolina that he lind sent hi infantry, his cavalry and his artillcr down here to protect thc people in al their rights of citizenship, but that un less there was a speedy chango for th better in thc allah's of the State, hcwouli come with a ..stronger power and wouli thoroughly cleanse the Republican tem plc herc (d'thc thieves and robberswhlcl now infest it to thc shame of tho Reputo Llict\n party, and would if necessary rc I maud the Suite back to a provisional gov cr?ment. Pretty strong language this even for the soldier President. Thc Judge, however, was very mucl I in earnest in his condemnation of cor I ruption and inefficiency in office, ant equally as much in earnest in impress big upon his fellow Republicans the lac that tho remedy was in their hands, ant if they failed in the discharge of thci duty, in electing honest and capable met to office, tho responsibility was theirs and the consequences above thrcatenct they might expect. i ' Doctor of Laws or Horse Doctor f I The fortunes of Ulysses S.

"One degree more will be conferred next fall. That will be ex-P., by the Electoral College." The Mobile Tribune puls-the following query : "WHAT WILL HE DO WITH IT ?

Parker, the State Treasu rer, be restrained from either paying out or receiving for taxes this Revenue -Boni | Scrip. This*- is justly to ben considered one of the most important legal ques tions that has been brought up before the Supreme Court since the war. It w*8 argued on Thursday last in Columbia, before Judge, Willard, by Messrs Pope and Haskell, fer tho Plaintiff, and by Judge Magrath, who represents a Mr. Wesley of New York*, whoihas advanced; a considerable amount of money on this "Scrip" as collateral. And on the day following, Messrs. Melton & Clark and Mr. D. H. Chamberlain^ Attorneys for Parker, declined to argile thc question at all. This leaves tho case before Judge Willard. And he, it is said, has already indicated that his opinion will be.adverse to the validity of the Scrip. Consequent ly tho resultof the Auditor's suit will be to/invalidate the Scrip, and thus save the State from the payment of nearly two raflions of dollars, for which she has never received tho . slightest considera tion. Tho greater part of these bills of credit arc still inthe hands of the Riug, and on them-we aro delighted to say loss will chiefly fall. Concerning Judge Willard's opinion in the case, the'Columbia correspondent of tho Charleston Rews writes as follows : ?< Mr..Pope made, a very strong argu ment against the validity of the scrip, and Judge Williard intimated very clear ly that he'heTu thb act to be unconstitu tional as authorizing the issue of bills, of credit,, which the Constitution.-of the United States prohibits, and" also upon other grounds, such as a want o? consid eration to the State for the gl,800,.000.of serin which the act authorizes to be is sued. ''M* Scott Robs us of Our Money-Orr Would Rob us of our Good Name. The" Editor .of the Lancaster. Ledger, with the renegade Jas. L. Orr as his subject of comment, talks out truthfully and boldly, and in a mnnner that, must please all who love South Carolina and South Carolinians. His /'language is plain," and cuts to the quick ; and he has no hopes of reformation in the Radi cal ranks under the leadership of the in famous Orr. ' From the Ledger of the 11th, we quote as follows : A correspondent of the Charleston News sets forth* the opinions' of Jas. L. Orr upon.tho.present and future condi tion of thc State. Ho takes decided grounds against the present corrupt ring of thieves mtjolambia, and seeks to in stitute a reform 'in tho Radical party |-which will lead to their overthrow. All that Judge Orr says Is, no doubt, true, and then the fiftieth part is not told ; bnt tho difficulty with which the Judge will have to contend is, to make his own, or any considerable-portion ol' the Conser vativo party, believe that kc is any better than Scott or.Neagle. Orr is a white mao. Ho unnaturally joined the negro race in the persecution of the very citizens who had conferred .upon him "distinguished honors-and this act ol' his, heindirectly admits, was for office. Orr has always beeii an office seeker, and, as ho says, an office holder. He never had'arre principies' but what bc would chauaO'?P-.tha cdur?? of a day. in order to ""secure "an office. flo nover could be relied lipon t wenty-four hours at a time-hence, it appears rather singu lar that a paper With such a distinguished record as .-thc Charleston News, should regard tlie opinions of the Judge with more than ordinary interest. If there had been left in thc' bosom ol' the white citizen the least respect fur this notorious renegade, his speech at Philadelphia, de faming their character, and, as sri midnight assassin, stabbing them ?o tiic heart, his s?lf-respect would have repelled it. Be tween Orr and Scott wo see no difference. Scott has robbed us ol' our money-Orr maile his greatest effort, before ihn as sembled States, lo rob us id'our good name. Those who value their character more tli'an trash would not hesitate long. We never expected anything from Scott ami his thieves, but wc did, though the. mighty had fallen, ex]>ect bettor Ulinga froni Ex-Gov. Jas. L. Orr than his de famatory speech at Philadelphia. Wo favor reform, and we arc frank t? admit, thotrcforin in thirStatc must como from the dominant party-but we "can't sec it" in JamesL. Orr. . -. .-?z?..- ? - A Pertinent (Question. Alluding to the pillage of tho ten South ern States since the war, Theodore Tilton, rn thc (Johlen Agc, very pertinently asks : " What has become of all this squan dered money? Nobodv knows-except the purloiner.* of it, who aro the carpet baggers themselves. They can toll where it is-but nobody else can. They have stolen it from au impoverished people and used it to enrich themselves. Their administration, beginning in usurpation I and ending in rapine, constitutes one of thc blackest blots on modern civilization. If the Southern people are to get nd bet ter idea ol' the North than is reflected to them from the hideous spectacle present ed by these swindling and thieving car pet bag Governors and Legislatures with their rings, and rings within rings -they will never cease to hate us These wretched and damnable SUtto adminis trations should be swept away like the Tammany regime-cleansed like the Au gean stables-expelled like thc money changers from tho Temple. Every vote for Grant is a vote to sustain these villains and their villainy. Every votcfor Gree ley ls a blow fortheir destruction." "All Tarred to thc Same Stick." Thc Fairfield Herald, noticing the celebrations on thc 4tJi by " tho loyal'' throughout the State", says : " Orr and Corbin let loose " the vialvof | their wrath" upon Scott & Co., at the meeting in Greenville, but their addros ses were exceptions to the general char acter of thosoTlclivcrcd in other Counties, our private opinion is that if Orr, Cor ian, and Scott, were put in a bag togetb?r and well shaken, it would boa difficult matter to tell which would drop out first*.

We publish an ab stract taken' from the map furnished by the Surveyor employed to mn the line. Commencing at Body's Mills, on Chin quapin Falls Creek, (Norris Township,) the line runs in a S.

Jj yet but little interest is manifested *y the- whites in the election, it being t nerally thought that the Republican party, wifh ita thorough organization, , can commandan overwhelming majority in the new County. However, could th? whites bc aroused and united, the chan; ces are not so? desperate. 'Conceding that, there are 300 white radicals in the new County, there must unquestionably be a large number of blacks who are having their eyes opened to the frauds commit ted by the leaders of the Republican pari ty, which would more than offset the number of white republicans. * * For the Advertison . MR. EDITOR-Tho Oat crop seems to be attracting the attention of the good people of this vicinity as of vital import to their future success in farming; and indeed we can plant no crop in this sec-. tion that will so amply repay the farmer for his labor. Our particular friend Mr. D., and his prolcge Mr. L., have been terribly successful with their high-pres sure, double-jointed, Red Rust Proof Oats this year. We admit thc fact. But there are others who have been equally successful by sowing oaks among their cotton when plowing tho last time in August. And j*et they do not hang ont such a Drummond light as our aforesaid friends. But still we do liUo for men, and women too, fo "let their light shine." Mr. Editor, what I want "to be after telling you" is "what I know about raising Oats." On the 2oth of last March a friend of mine found a low bushels of black Oats stowed away inclose prox imity to a tou of Soluble Stouo Guano; the horses refused to oat them, as they luid,*-*'a very anoieut luid t?eklike J3nioLL)'' conscqueutly they wore sowed on very poor kind about the last of March ; they came up well, grew off rapidly, and made a very lino crop, notwithstanding thc drought in April and May. The escaping ammonia from the Gua no was absorbed by the Oats to such a degree that tho application of it in bulk was entirety superseded and his guano saved to farther fructify corn and cotton., Now, Mr. Editor, if our great Oat men would always keep a ton or two of the above named guano, or some other sort equally ?us sensitive to the olfactory, and house their seed Oats with it, they could sell them at a high price, and insure the purchaser from thirty to forty bushels per acre on any land that will grow the Oat.' Look out for a great decline in Oats and Kinard's Improved Cotton Seed, at SHATTERFIELD. .OBITUARY.
