Last week we published the call of ] County Chairman Bettie for a Con vention on the 16th May. And we beg oar people to remember his or geat words apon the great importance of thorough organisation and com plete preparation for the conflict. President, Congressman," State and County officers are to be elected ; and the Republican party, now dominant in the national councils, and unscru pulous1^ its methods, will use every means within its power to retain its ascendancy. Already the skeleton of the party___iu our own County has -'evinced sufficient evidence of vitality to send a full delegation to Columbia. From this time forth they will doubt less endeavor to increase their strength in the County, with the hope of car rying the State for the Republican ' 'candidate for President, and perchance the election of State officers, and a Congressman in the 5th District. We wonld admonish you not to be luke warm in national politics; for the election of a Democratic President and the appointment of Federal offi cials in our midst whose politics and sentiments would be in accord with our own, are considerations that should command the earnest and undivided support of every Democrat in the County. And while this is true of Federal politics,-we wool.d have you to keep in mind the supreme importance of | the maintenance of honest govern ment and white supremacy in the State. We hardly deem it necessary to remind you of the flush days of j "good stealing," when your legislat ive balls were filled with ignorant, corrupt negroes and thieving carpet bagger?; when corruption was the rule and honesty the exception ; when taxation almost amounted to confisca tion, and the public debt was in creased from six to eighteen millions; when society was subverted, and vir tue and decency were subordinated to vice and corruption ; and when white men had no rights that carpet baggers and negroes were bound to respect. These matters are fresh in the memory of all; and no man of | sense or principle desires, or jpo?ld eubmit to, a return of sucha state of j affairs. The Democraticjjafty has now been in power some/seven years, and by its acts let us judge it. Taxation has been reduced about two thirds; order has been brought out of chaos, and our securities that were nearly worth less-are now selling above pai; our fe?gislatiy?, Executive and Judicial officers are capable and honesty the courts are open to all of our citizens where their rights may be maintained and their wrongs redressed ; the in crease in our manufacturing indus tries has been almost magical In deed within the last eight years the increase in^manufactures, machinery and improved agricultural implements amounts to millions of dollars; and our development is only fairly begun in that direction ; our laws, as a whole, have been wise and beneficial. The disaffection caused by the pass age of the Stock Law and the Regis tration and Election laws has been, we believe, entirely healed. The prac tical operation of thes3 laws has de monetr?ted their benefits and the wis dom of their passage. We now have no cause for local dissension ; aud we trust every Dem ocrat will take an interest in his club meetings, and in the election of our standard bearers. See that all Dem ocrats that have come of age since the last election are registered ; and let all who have lost their certificates have them properly renewed. Let as have no bickerings, but let us close up our ranks, and, with an elbow touch all along the line, cast a solid vote, when the.time comes, for huntst government and Anglo Saxon civil ization. Cessation of Political Persecutions. The United States Court is now in session in Charleston, but no election cases will be tried. On Thursday, the 17th, a motion was made by Dis trict Attorney Melton to dismiss all cases on the docket involving charges of violation of the election laws of the United States. The motion was granted and all the cases were strick' en from the docket. In making the motion, Mr. Melton reviewed the his tory of the cases. He stated that when he had come into office he found about two hundred cases on the dock et; realizing that all could not be tried, he had obtained permission from the Department of Justice to se lect the most serious and discontinue the others. The cases so selected were worked up by Special Agent Sanders, appointed for the purpose. The result of the trials was one con viction and one plea of guilty, the other cases resulting in mistrials. This is an event of considerable importance to the people of South Carolina in their feeling of security at home, and in their relations to the National Government. And simultaneously with this ces sation of persecution of Democrats, begins the prosecution of ex United StateB Marshal Blythe and his Depo ty Marshals, for the presentation of horrible and unlimited fraudulent claims. True bills have been found against six of them; but, unfortu nately, it is not probable that the cases will be beard at this term of the Court. Subscribe to the ADVERTISES. The?eople Whom we are Impov erisbiog Ourselves to Educate! The Lff-roes, whom we white peo ple of South Carolina are impover ishing ourselves to educate, met in Convention in Columbia last week, and, even more perhaps than in re? construction times, evinced theirdead ly and undying hatred to the white race. The object of the Convention was to elect eighteen .delegates to the Republican Presidential Nomi nating Convention to be held in Chi cago on the 3rd June. Miller, a yel low man of Beaufort, whose duty it was to call the body to order, made an opening speech of bitter and threatening malice. The convict and perjurer Smallf was made Chairman. Edgefield County was represented by the following delegation : Paris Sim kins, David Harris, ]r., Bristow Yel dell, Alec Raiford and David Gra ham. The Arthur banner was the one that seemed to wave most promi nentiy. ; Paris Simkins introduced the following, which was Adopted : Resolved, That in view of the embar rasaing circumstances growing out of the aRsaFsination of the late lamented President James A. Garfield and the extremely delicate position in which the present incumbent President Ches ter A. Arthur was placed, we, t1 e. Republicans of South Carolina, in Convention assembled, do be-rtily endorne the administration ot Presi dent Arthur as wise, economical aud just, without reproach or stain, and perfectly harmonious in all its depart menta. The delegates at large chosen by this Convention are : E. M. Brayton, Robert Smalls, W. N. Taft and Sam uel Lee. The following District delegates were elected : 1st District-J M. Freeman, col ored, of Charleston ; E. A. Webster, white, of Oranpeburg. 2d District-Paris Simkins, colored, of Edgefield; S. E. Smith, colored, of Aiken. 3d District-E. F. Blodgett and R. W B lone, both white and bot h from Newberry. 4th District-Wilson Cook, colored, of Greenville; C. M. Wilder, color ed, of Richland. 5th District-C. C. McCoy, white, of Chester; E. H. Dibble, colored, of Kershaw. 6th District-D T. Corbin, white, of Charleston ; E H. Deas, colored, of Darlington. 7th District-T. B Johnston, white, of Charleston; W. H. Thompson, colored, of Berkley. A large portion of this noble eigh teen, who will go to Chicago, are of freeholders under Arthur. This Bhows how their first vote will be ; and after ? that they will be governed by the strongest developments. The Knights of Honor. Perhaps few persons outside of the pale of thia worthy institution are aware of its extensive membership and the wonderful amount of money that it has paid in death benefitb to the families o? deceased members. It wa8orgahized at Louisville, Ky., on June 30, 187^, consequently IB a little over ten (10) years old, and now has on its rolls throughout the j United States over 135,000 members, and has paid over eleven and a quar ter millions of dollars to its oenefi ciarie8. Never a benefit certificate has failed of prompt payment, and many ?re the widows and orphans whohave bler6ed the name of Knights of Honor. Death of Dr. Uidemau. An Abbeville special to the Reg ister, dated the 17th inst, says : "Dr A. T. Wideman died suddenly at bis home, near Troy, in this County, last night. The cause of his-dea*li is r.it known here yet. He was in town on Monday last, looking well and er ron y, and yesterday accompanied bi? "daughter to the train to Fee ber i ff to Baltimore. When he returned home he was suffering from giddiness and could not stand well. Dr. Wide man was an influential man and u man of means. Abbeville has io-t "ne of her best citiz?ns." . The Cherches Should Pay I heir Expeuses. We copy this most excellent article from the Union Tunes, and recrm mend it to the consideration of all our churches: We have noticed the name6 of Revs. C. T. Scaife, T. J. Taylor and G. W. Gardner among the delegates ap pointed from this county to the South ern Baptist Convention which will convene in Baltimore early in May. The whisper has reached our ears that the Baptist Church in this place will pay their pastor's expenses to the convention. This is a move in the right direction, and we hope the churches of which Messrs. Scaife aud Taylor are pastors will raise funds to pay their expenses also. It will help the pastors and through them their Churches, end we hope their chuiches will send them. The cost of the tr ip will not exceed thirty dollars. Pastors, particularly those of coun try churches, seldom receive from their congregations more than is nee e3sary for the actual wants of them selves and families, and when the duties of their high calling demand their attendance et the high courts of the church, as representatives of their separate pastoral charges, the churches have no more right to expect them to pay their expenses out of the lim ited amount usually doled out to them, specially for pastoral services, than a State has to ask the represent atives of the separate counties to de fray their own expenses as members of the Legislature ; and ecclesiasti cal assemblies are as necessary for the good of each separate pastoral charge as the Legislatureis for the good of each county in the State, and the necessity of repreteutation should be considered as equally Irmperative. If the Directors of the C., C G & C. R. R. met in Aiken on the 15th, we have never been able lo hear of it,1 A New Rouie, via Rdgc?cld, to Charleston. We copy the following encouraging article from the Greenwood depart ment of the Abbeville Press and Banner, and we believe it to be in spired by Senator Call?6on. Let us hear from you on this subject, Sen? ator : ? , We are informed by representative men from Edgefield county, that there is a iively agitation of the subject of building a connecting line of railroad from Greenwood to Edgefieiil Court Houfie, with a view of extending it to Aiken by the line that is already graded from Edgefield, by way of Trenton : thus making a direct line to Charleston. It is claimed that it will be forty miles nearer to Charles ton, than either of the other linea, by Augusta or Columbia, from Green wood. , The distance to Edgefield f'onrt House about thirtv-thi ee miles This ?R the route recommended by John C Calhoun years ago, as design ed by nature for the location of a railroad, and that it would be built, That, prophesy is about to be fulfilled. It is a level ridge from beginning to end without, a running stream across it lt. will develop a large and fertile section of intervening country, and when connection is made at Edgefield it. will utilize the road already graded from that, point to Aiken and not likply t'> n? of Rerviee in any other connection. We have often called the attention of our friends at. Edge field to the importance of making this connection, and now the matter in to be urged upon them in a more substantial way ; if they are wise they will not lose the opportunity of effecting it. The South Carolina Railroad should lend a heir ing hand, and so should Charleston lt. would bring into enmpptition a third line at thin point of intersection of two great rival lines. The importance of con necting at this point is enhanced by the prowpecta of an extension across the mountains to connect, with the great Systems o! road running north west and northeast. Our Edgefield friends need rely no longer on any other outlet. ; if any other waR proba ble it moet be a very remote period, while this p within their reach, and can be accomplished at an early day. ( ol. Cash's Account of the Miller in? Poor. COLUMBIA, April 19.-Various ru mers are in circulation to the effect that in several c unties in this State great suffering prevails among the farmers an account of the prolonged drouth of last fall, and that in some instances starvation is imminent. The most- of these reports come from Ches terfield county, in the following letter, which has been received at the Register effice from the noted Colonel Cash : CASH'S DEPOT, S. C., Ap.il 18. Editor Columbia Register : There is now and will be great destitution and suffering among ihe poor people of Chesterfield County, and already there is a cry for bread. I foresaw what was to be our situation and made arrangements with bankers in your city for a loan of $5,000, that I might be in condition to assist those in need ; but after my son shot the policeman my bankers broke their en gagement wkh me without assigning any valid, r?aaon for - their course. Since then I Yiave tried in vain in eve ry-qnarter where I supposed money could be borrowed to obtain a loan, but bankers seem "Bjmb Proof against my applications I now ap peal to the readera of your "paper, and beg the loan of $5,000 or one thousand dollars. My note or laud is good for thousands of dol a >, and every dollar borrowed shall be re turned with interest before the end of the present year ; and every dol lar borrowed shall be given by me. and at my expense, to the poor. I Hsk no man to give, only lend, that I may give that that cost, of the lend er nothing.

Tho House committee on the judi ciary Tuesday adopted Representative Maybury'a adverse report on the joint resolution propoaiug a constitutional ?.mftidment togive women the right of suli'r'.ge. Dr. Doraheimer agreed to the report on the ground that it is inex pedientto extend the right of sutTrage now, but he waa of the opinion that it. will be advisable at some future time to give women the right to vote. R-presentativea Reed, Brown, of In- \ diann, and Taylor, of Ohio, will sub mit a minority report. Thc wickedest thing they say about , Biaine now is that he left the Catho lic Church after the publication of the Mulligan letters because he was 1 opposed to auricular confession. ' I For the Advertiser Tbe lion. H . H. Ti m m erra an I plies to ">avanua? River." ME"SR3. EDITO?S : I had not pected so soon to appear again your columns, but "Savannah 1 er's" article in your last ?8soe| manda some remarks al my hoi Freedom of speech is one of the bfi ed rights of American citizens! The Commonwealth of South Car na, in her Declaration of Rig Dis section 7, says : " All personage freely speak, write and publish^ sentiments on any subject, being ;pon8ible for the abnse of that rjgi but no laws shall be enacted ip stiain or abridge the liberty of epei Dr of the presa." Now, it seems tl " Savannah River" is willing "cemp outside of the Constitntic in order to abridge my right to xvr ind publish mys sentiments 'op measurpa involving the public int sets of the Democratic party of Edj 5eld County, because, forsooth^ I i candidate before that party for 1 nomination for the State Se?ale, was surprised to hear from that?oui that it was so "especially out of plac lor a candidate to discuss matters public policy over his own sigjjatu cot boastfully, but, ns I tboug courteously and fairly. Itisitak [or granted that men who dfeire repr?sentative positions shouJ^p' 3ess ordinary intelligence, andeh?i] feel such inter? st in public mattera to justify an expression of cpini thereupon. And regardless ?f t interdiction of "Savannah Rivei [who seems to bethe oracle -^or 1 "whole section,") I trust that?cant date or no candidate, I shall jalwa have the manhood and independen! wheneverl bave clearly define^ vic on questions of public policy br pri ciplea, to express them undisguised in propria persona. Ido noe clai; nor have I ever claimed, inftplibili of judgment. I am aa often jwror doubtless, 'as others, in my opinioi Interchange ol thought andWpinii enables men to draw wisemans prop conclusions; and it matters litl whether they Mu expressed jin eoci gath rings, in public assemblies, through the presa. S I neither ask nor desire that t amendments, suggested to ou>* Coon Constitution, shall be adopted as personal favor to me. All that I d aire is, that they be considered upc their respective mente, expedier and practicability. " Savannah Ri er"say8: "If the people want a Co venlion, let them have it. : If th< want majority instead of piuralit fpf them have it." So say f And go further, and say, if tb* peop want plurality instead of m?-jorit let them have it. If they want vii voce instead .of ballot, them^ have i and they will have what they wac and I shall be the last man-to coi plain of their chcice. . 1 "Savannah River" aeemito mal much a dat over my boldness* 1 cann divine woy, unless 'he ?eancroSi'cw?^ will rob him or his next friend of h prestige. I do not like thayi, and e pecially when applied to viivavocc vo ing for men. There is a*"degree i modesty and civility due Jrom ot gentleman to another. There ia certain incivility and want of mo( eaty in the act of boldly fUuntin your^viva voce vote in the face of ft low citizens, to which I don't aepir and which I will never comment The analogy doea not apply in tl case of a writer, acknowledging h autLorsbip of an article, toucbin pubiic meatures, by subscribing h: uame thereto, and that of castiug vote in the selection of men for poa lion, viva voce. If an, then .why nc ask each voter in the primary ele< tion-; to come forward and nead on the men of his choice? Woj^d "St v;mnah River" advocate that? Wuul not his temerity feil him lhere? Tht let us be contisteiit. Balloting i primary elections ia nothing\ut bal loting in genera! Convention of th pcopie, congi egated at different point for convenience. The principle is th same. As to majorities, "Savannah River asks the question : " Would that b Democratic, to threw out a half doz en and run two favorites?" I an ewer yes ; it has the sanction of hir.1 precedent, in the manner of electioi of President of the United Sta!ei when any one fails to receive a ma jority vote in the Electoral College But I would ask whose favorites wouic be left out? A plurality vote hat not made them the first nor eeccuc choice, 80 they suffer LO detriment thereby. But they have theadvan tage and satisfaction of a second choice, which is certainly worth some thing. I rea6Btrt what I said in my former communication, that a nomi nation by majority ?8 always Demo cratic, and add that it is a declaration which cannot be controverted. It ia an established principle in the equi ties of politics, and hae the sanction and vindication, as a sound trinciple of democra y, of that great states man, brilliant acholar and noble pa triot, Thcmaa Jefferson. But "Savannah River" aays, "No; the people do not want a Constitution, al Convention; consequently they do not want the majority plan, because it goes along with the Convention plan." That sounds to me more like the cry of the demagogue than the utterance o? the statesman. Thejr?eo ple of Edgefield County are too in telligent not to be able to draw a ^dis tinction between Convention and pri mary majoiity. But again, he sayB that the people want the plurality. Now how does he know what the peo ple want? Is he their oracle? Or ia it the power behind the throne? Or is bethe Great High ' Priest, to whoiii the people have made confes sion? I acknowledge that I do not divine what the people desire as to these mattera. They are competent io speuk for themselves, and will sp -ak when the proper time comer. I do not eFsay to be the mouth piece for the feople; no. not for those of my own section. I only presume to speak f> r nyself HS sn individual, .lolhe.l with the same rights and nrivilfgea of eveiy other ci'izen of j Edgefield County. This, and no more. W. H. TIMMERMAN. il Bridge Across Saluda. The merchants of Newberry are waking up to the importance of put ting themselves in more convenient reach of the prosperous and clever Edgefielder-i that dwell just over the border, beyond, in the poetical lan guage of J. Y. C., " the waters of the blue Saluda." A meeting of tl e Merchants' Protective Association waB held Tuesday night to take the matter into consideration. Much interest was manifested. The Association dis cussed, among other things, the ques tion of the best place .'or a bridge Bouknight's, Kinard's or Cannon's Ferry. A committee was appointed to visit the several localities and ob tain information regarding location, probable cost and the feasibility of | raising the necessary funds. The fol lowing merchants compose the com mittee : B. H. Cline, chairman, Geo. McWhirter, J. N. Martin, W. T. Tar rant and S. P. Boozer. This commit tee will report to a meeting to be held two weeks hence.-Newberry Observer. Senator Butler does not display many symptoms of being frightened by either the prohibitionists or our esteemed Charleston cotemporary. It will be demonstrated after a while that an honest and nervy man may oppose the " predominant sentiment" of this State and continue to exist. The population of South Carolina is 2 per cent, of the United States and Territories. Her illiteracy is three times the average illiteracy of j the States and Territories. Her pro portion of the educational lund under the Blair bill would, therefore, be G percent. If the Blair bill pas6 the House and become a law, it will ^|i ve South Carolina the first year about $100.000; second, $000,000; third, $900000; fourth. $780,000; fifth $GG0,O00; sixth, $540,000; Beventh, $420,000-and (hen stop-making $4.300.000 for this State. The Marquis de Louisville, now in New York, (and who ia to many Mrs. Frank Leslie) is described as .the most gorgeous specimen ot the Eng lish dude ever imported. Ile is rather thickly set and about the me dium height, but his waist is com preesed by corsets, while his shoul dere are disproportioued by overpad ding. He ha-", a tremendous black beard, and hishair is artistically puff ed. Carefully cocked on his left ear is a bell-crowned hat of a grotesque pattern, and altogether it would be quite unsafe foi him tc encounter a crowd of American gamins. Gen. Grant is said to be thoroughly in earnest in his efforts to restore har mony in the Republican party, but he wants to so shape it that the party will harmonize on Gen. Grant as its candidate for the Presidency. He is said to be already ac?vely at work through friends to win the support of the Grand Army and other soldier organizations. The work is not ex pected tobe done in the primaries, but his,hopes are based on the proba \ft?t?tj eft a deadlock at Chicago, and he wants to carry the key in case of such an event. An exchange says that the elec tions for delegates to the National Republican Convention have so far indicated that Arthur, Logan and Edmund? stand no chance cf a nomi nation. The issue seems to be be tween Blaine, Lincoln and a dark horse, with chances in favor of one of the two latter. Blaine always has a strong following, but is never strong enough to be nominated.
