Speech of Hon. M. P. O'Connor.
Below we publish in full the speech
livered at the Baltimore Convention
Hon. M. P. O'Connor, ot' Charleston,
reply to Senator Bayard. Tlie sp?
was received with loud applause by
Convention, and has been most fa vom
noticed by Northern journals :
Gentlemen of the Convention: 1 j
foundly regret that there should lie
division of opinion,' either upon tho p
form of principles or upon our candida
in the Southern juncture of our Natic
affairs. ' [Applause.]
The whole nation is at the present t
in a .crisis, when- all issued should
mergvl'Ih the one great and overshadi
ing issue of the defeat of the present 3
tiona! AdraHwstrati?n, which is work
? such detriment to .th e. Republic.
Mr. President and gentlemen, the gr
changea that have taken place in tho 1
eight years, tending to the complete c
tralization of this* Government in- al
v its departments, have: emboldened an i
scrupulous Executive to the cpmtm?s
of acts of usurpation and tyranny t
now endanger the very foundations

plause.]' "
In the rapid march- bf events mam
the anweht landmarks of all political,
ganizations have been swept away i
entirely forgotten, while many of .th
landmarks have been comparatively mc
tied and changed to suit.the creative si
tion of things.' The reconstruction a
which in, 1868, were, by this Conventi
denounced as unconstitutional* and vc
have been accepted by nearly all the St
Conventions as fixed facts (applause ] J

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
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. '

nave heretofore referred to the system, ol I
judicial raids by deputy marshals andi
blank warrants, a ?\ stem in open defiance j
of all law and justice, and which scatters j

Tlie Baltimore Nomination.
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.

i ? . .' Cotton Prospects.
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
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.
Another Vile Political Feature K.\

greatest Radical of them ali, ami one
who has worked harder than any man
living for social and political equality for

"1 think, on reflection, yqu will not

What Grant ?Said to Tom Mackey.
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. Grant (tho}
say he was originally named Hiratr
Ulysses Simpson) have been rather*vari
cd. Ho hits been an officer in the Unitec

Army, was a Democrat, isa Katti cal, wa;
a G euora!, then President, and now
wonderful to relato, is au L.L. D.' Har
vard College has bestowed upon him the
last ridiculous and uumeaning compli
ment* And tito press throughout th(
country aro making merry over it. Ont
paper is sharo iu this stylo: ' .
"GRANT, LL. D.-Most of the press
people are making objections to tho ro
I cont conferring of tho degree of Doctoi
of Laws on General President Grant, hy
old Harvard. Thia is all wrong. If evoi
a utan has doctored tho laws, without
degree, for years, that man is Hiram
Ulysses Simpson, ne Grant. And hadn't
everybody conferred something upon
I* him before ? Then, whynot Harvard?
"One degree more will be conferred
next fall. That will be ex-P., by the
Electoral College."
The Mobile Tribune puls-the following
query :
Harvard'University has given General
tirant the degree of LL. H., and Grant
. has accepted .it-rs he does everything
else that is offered to him. But what
will he do with it ? It will buy ueither
a dog-cart, nor a fast horse, nor a bottle

Our peoplewellTemeuiber the villanous
Act of the last Legislature which gave to
the villanous.Blue Ridge Ring ?1,800,000
in bills of crpditof theState, to be known
and designated as ' 'Roven ue Bond Scrip."
This $l,800;00O-wa4 givcnin exchange for
for four millions- of guaranteed bonds,
for which the State was'not theft liable,
and which were worth not one cent to
the dollar. > i ' . . .
And now comes State Auditor, Edwin
F. Gary, and asks of tho Supreme Court? |
that Niles G. 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.

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*.
They are all tarred lo tho same stick.

Commencing at Body's Mills, on Chin

the line runs in a S. W. direction to the
mouth of Foxes' Creek-leaving Bethel
Church ? mile from line in Edgeiield,
and running within a few hundred feet
df the C. C. & A. R. B. for onp and a half
miles-leaves Watson Perry's half mile
to right In Aiken county ; passing through
the. barns ?ind .fields of Wm. .Afelpas,
leaves Thoa. Smith'sinEdgefleld.co'??ty;
next it goes by Watson's Mill and farm
of A. Horn, and crosses little Edisto
River two miles below Rocky Creek,
.Shaws Creek 2h miles jibove Seigler's
Mill, and the Edgefield Road i mile to
the left of Dr. Courtney's new house ;
then the line crosses the C, G. <fc" A, Rail
road one mile from Miles'Pottery ; leaves
Mt. Zion Church about a half mile in
Edgefield Co., crossing the plank road
2i miles above Cherokee pond and pass
ing within 200 feet of the .Sweet Water

whites bc aroused and united, the chan;
ces are not so? desperate. 'Conceding that,
there are 300 white radicals in the new

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

THESE GINS were sold the past sea
son for, tho first time. They are
made under Mr. Gullett's personal su
pervision, who ?ever allows one to he
?sent from his works until- it has- been
rally tested, and made to sin perfectly ia
every respect. This mode of testing is
very important to the purchaser, ashs
does not run tho risk of receiving and
setting up a Gin to find it, on trial, to be ,
imperfect " 1
The IMPROVED GIN differs materi
ally from the Steel Brush Gin formerly
sold by us, inasmmm as the Steel Brush,
has three brushes, while thenew Gin has
but one.
We guarantee every Gin to bo of very
right draft, to thoroughly clean the seed,
and make a superior sample. Besides,
it is simple in its construction, easily ad
justed and gins very fast.
We respectfully refer to all those who
have used the Improved Gin the past
Plant?is wishing Gins will consult
their own interests, by either writing to
us for our Circular with Certificates, or
calling'at our office and examining for
themselves before purchasing elsewhere.
0?? We will take bask every Gin
which does not work well when fairly
tested, and pay all expense* incurred by
the purchaser. . ?
