E. KEE3E, Corresponding Editor. Edgetield, S. C., May 15, 1881. Defeat of the Morrison Tariff Sill. On Tuesday of laet week the Mor riso? Tariff Bill was defeated in the National _ House of Representatives -a result which adds materially to the strong probability of the next President being a Republican. Upon the motion to strike ont the enacting clause, the, vote was 159 yea9 to 155 nays. South Carolina's six Democrats all enrolled on the right side. Till man, Aiken, Dargan, Dibble and Hempbill were solid for the Morrison Bill. The negro Smalls voted ofcourBe for its defeat. Democratic Principles and Honest Measures. Oar County Convention will meet on Friday of this week. Let no per sonal bickerings ncr unpleasant issues come to the front in this important meeting. Let personal views and in dividual choice give way to Demo cratic principles and honest measures. And, to come down to literally prac tical matters, we beg the delegates, even from the greatest distance, tobe promptly on hand at an early hour. The Convention ought to be called to order"at rl-o'elock, A M., and pro ceed at once to work. As Secretary of tho body, weT remember well in the pasfc'bow many; illa and how much dissatisfaction have resulted from as sembling the Convention too lute, thereby causing the closing hours to be scenes of confusion, desertion and irregularity._ Charmin?

The facilities for travel at the pres ent day-are truly marvelous as com pared with those ol' a few years ago. You may dine at home in Johnston or Batesburg to day and in Baltimore to morrow, or by delaying dinner just a little, you can eat it in the city of Brotherly Love. Our party left Batesburg on Tues day, one d?y later than we expected, but it waa. fortunate that we did so, as the train the day and night be.iore waa crowded to the discomfort of everybody. Nothing along the line of the G. C. & A. R.

From Charlotte to Greensboro, and thence over the Va.

The Convention of Southern Baptists meets with the 7th Baptist Church. About six hun dred delegates are enrolled. South Carolina is about PO strong. There are present from the Edgefield Asso ciation : H. A. Whitman,W.B.Shaw, G. W. Busa?k'J. K. Fant, J. Ii. P^ce, D. P. Hartley,' N. N. Burton, G. F. Williams and W. L. Durst. Six of these are pastors, whose expenses were paid by their churches. Hurrah for Edgefield 1 - P. H." Mell, of Georgia, is elected President-; Lansing Burrows, of Au f;u8ta, and O. F? Gregory, of Char btte, Secretaries. The Correspond ing Secretaries presented their re porte. The Foreign Mission Board reporiB a little over $80.000 raised since the last Convention; and the Home Mission Board about $65,000. While these sums fall short of what we set out to do, yet it ?3 very grati fying to know that they are consider ably in advance of the 1 seipts ?J any one year since the war. ' Tb utmost harmony prevails throughout the ses eionB of the Convention. There are quite a number of visit ors from the N?>rth, among them some of the foremost men, both ministers and laymen, such, for instance, as Rev. E-'ward Bright, of N. Y., Rev. J. B. Thomas, Brooklyn, Rev. Mr Stockbridge, of Rhode Island, and 0. B. Fuller, of Boston. It is truly refreshing to hear the speeches made by these brethren, and to witness the spirit of fraternal good cheer which characterizes the inter course of the leading men from the two great sections of our common country. Able and earnest addresses were made on Thursday morning by Dre. J. P. Boyce and J. A. Broadus in the interest of the Southern Bap tist Theological Seminary. About $4,500 wes secured for that institu tion. Quito a number of good speeches have been made during the Conven tion, notably, those hy Dr. Curry, of Va., Dr. Hiden, of Ky., Rev. C. A. Staksly, the youthful pastor of the Citadel Square Church, Charleston ; but the speech of the Convention was made this morning by J. C. C. Black, Esq., of Augusta, Ga. lt is not yet settled where the next Convention will be held. Augusta has applied, and so has Louisville, Ky. The probability is that it will go to Augusta, as next year will be the 40th anniversary of the Conven tion, it having been organized iu that City in 1845. This letter ia already too long.

EDITORS : Job, the patient man of Uz, when beset by an "evil spirit," moredreadful and more dire than that of an imagiuary Don Quixote, scraped himself with a potsherd, as he listeued to the cavils of enemies, and to the advice of false friends who asked him "to abandon his taith, curse God, and die. It w?s theu tbat, in tbe acme of his confi dence in his own integrity, and in the righteousness of his cause, he ex cia med. " 0 th?t mine enemy wouid write a b >ok." When Ire*J the la^t effusion of No. 2, I felt like exclaim ing, 0 that he had stuck to his text, and given us some facts and hideous expoeures, instead of stale platitudes, which when viewed in relation to anything I have written, are as mean ingless as the jibberiugs of a Borneo monkey. I at once saw that elimi nated of its verbose redundancy, it a6 "iittl-3 relevancy bore" t '.'hut I bad written as did the first utterances ot Poe's Raven to his questionings when it croaked " never more." I can safely challenge No. 2, or any one else, to point to, or repeat, a word that I have written or spoken that indicated a preference for PJu rality, or that I indicated opposition to majority. I have opposed, and do oppose, the Convention plan, without reference to either one or the other. If the people want the majority plan, it can be had in connection with the Pri mary, as well as with the other. Let them decide the question; I have not touched it. I considered it cf very email importance when * compared with the vital question of Primary or Convention. Thus it will at once ?M?&m&&UM y iiuftnf, " api cten eggs, porcupines, botf&mlees tub pills, unreliable ways, &C., &c ," isa gasconade, ami does not refer to tl question I have dmeui??d^-.He knov who I am.

Why, oh! why, W? be so recreant, to high trusts and ii cruelly unjust to his own fame ?

And I Lave, a light to criti eise Ute actions and sayings of all mei upon questions of public policy, shall continue to do so, but I shall id ways endeavor to be rieht, and strivi to be found on the side of humanity and justice, as I have been in iii discussion. Another question. Why, did you No. 2., leave your stronghold, fron which you claimed you could " ful m?nate destruction" upon the Prima ry plan, and upon plurality, &c , and fall back to such an unimportant po Fition, to make a ttand ? And whv did you set up an imaginary oppo nent, christen him " Fair Play" and open a fuBilade upon him? Ob, fie! fie! tut I tut! No 2. ii does not look well, it looks really ibby, to open upon me at a point where you knew I was not and had not been. Was it an artful doage on j your part to cover real defeat? Such I tricks are too thin and too " stale" to j be enjoyable, and the manner of your doing it savors more of " extreme bombast" than any thing I have seen lately. In fact euch swelling is ex tremely dangerous. Does No. 2, re member the ambitious frog of the fa ble that burst his skin and ppii=hed ? It will take you, No. 2, more than a life time to weave such tricke into "substantial reality." Dodging and fallacy are too patent, and the people of Edgefield will not swallow 6uch " pills" worth a cent. Let us adj urn our Phi I i jipi to some "Sunday School Convention," where you will address the crowd upon Missions and the fundamental doctrines contained in Holy writ, while I, dressed iu my homespun, with brogans on (I have no others) will utter a silent, fervent prayerthat you may be more successful in your new "role" than you have been in this. FAIR-PLAY. -??-----1-Jg?fU For the Advertiser. Let the County Commissioners Pay Their Attorney Out of Their Own Pockets. MESSES. EDITOES : Aa the.time is approaching to select candidates to represent us in the various County Offices, I write this communication to call the attention ot the people to what I consider one of the most im portant offices, if not the most impor tant, that the " dear' people have to fill, and one in regard to which, here tofore, the inference seems to have been that anybody could fill. I refer to the office of County Commissioner. The County Commissioners are really the Financial Board of the County They make the tax levy, approve al) County claims, and order the Bame paid ; and thus you can readily see the great reeponeibility of the office. Therefore we should select for our County Commissioners the ablept financiers of our County, to discharge the responsible duties of this office. And more especially should the Dem ocratic Party select men who are competent to diecharge the duties themselves; or at least if the duties of the office are so intricate as to ne" ce8sitate the services of a lawyer, the County Commissioners should employ one at their own expense and not at the expense ot the County. We should recollect that the precedent of emploving counsel at tie public ex pense was established under the ar bitrary ruling of ex-Judge R. B. Car penter, uuder the infamous Radical regime, aud at that time wasdenouac ed generally by thc white people of our County, as it should have been. It- is to be boped, therefore, that the Democratic Party in the ensuing campaign will take a decided stand on this importaut matter, as it ie not only a grave injustice to the tax pnyers, but unjust to discriminate thus betweeu our County Officials. If it is absolutely necessary that the Board should have the services of an attorney at their regular meetings, it would be better to elect one mem ber of the bar on the Board of Coun ty Commissioners to obviate the ex peuse of employing counsel. What say yon, fellow Democrats? PRO BONO PUBLICO. For tuc Advertiser. Celestia Woos the fandidates.-Dry Land Fishing: and Big Fish at Dyson's.

Whether the young me caught any of similar weight, I cat notpresui-. to dc. ide. The tisbin continued until about 4 o'clock p. m about which time the sound of a ancient violin was heard.

When will cease the prostitution o our public journals to the service o maiconteuts and designing schemer, who hide behind noni dc plumes? W e have at various time3 and in diver. manners cxpreseed our disapproval ol the practice, so common throughout the Sta e, of newspapers publishing anonymous communications criticis ing public men and rn-azures, for the reason that the writers of such so of ten ake the advantage of their con cealed identity to utter statements that they would not utter before a public meeting or under their known signature, to the unfair detriment ol the party ciiticised or the measure commented upon, and for the lurther reason that ?ne reader has a right to k: ow who it is attempting to influence his action or affect his opinion. Our attention is called to this matter again by the publication in the supplement to last Saturday's issue of the Char leeton News and Courier of a commu nication striking an underhanded, left-handed blow at the character and reputation of Lieutenant Govern or Sheppard, the writer of which neither has the courage to sign it with his uame or date it at his home. He simply uigns it "Citizen," without a place of residence or place of busi ness, and while he would have the public believe that bia disquisition comes from a reputable source, it ia as fair to presume that the author is a gntteisnipe whose name would cause hi utterances to pass unnotic ed. Mr. Sheppard needs no defence at our hands and we are not his ?ti apologist-in fact, public man as h is, our columns are open to any on who wiehes to criticise him in a fai and legitimate way, ba we wouh close our office and suspend publice tion before we would all w him stat bed unawares through our column by a cowardly anonymous writer. J " Citizen" is a man of standing-ant wishes to take part in public matters why doesn't he come out openly lik a man and make known his opinions AB it is, his article is unworthy o notice, end we hope noone will at tempt a defense of Mr Sheppard ii the face of it.-Anderson Journal.

This part of their territory was assigned to Miss Jennie Quattle baum, the noble and patriotic daughter of Gen: Paul Quattlebaum, through whose untiring efforts and patient} working the Association has received a handsome donation from our gener^ ous and patriotic community. Last Thursday morning the ladies of our town laid aside their home and do" mestic affairs, and with their heads and hearts bent on success, prepared a hot supper and strawberry festival, unequaled and unsurpassable by any country town. At 7 P. M., in the? unoccupied store of Mr L. Hartley, were assembled the aged, the youths and the beauties o' Batesburg audi surrounding country-" old men and maidens, young men and children" and they did then and there partake, of luxuries and pleasures that occur only very rarely in the lives of men and women. The young ladies who ministered to the wants of the people, deserve infinite praise and admira' tion for the courteous and kindly* mauner in which they performed their respective duties. After all appetites were duly ap peas d, it was announced that there were three huge and beautiful cakes yet on hand, and that they too, with all their splendor and evidence oj, perfect skill, should go to commemo rate the lost cause. Tney were dis posed of ia the usual way, Dr. T. S Fox and Jimmie Bates being the1 successful compeiitors. We congrat ulate you, Dr. and Jimmie, on your success, but confess it was very pain ful to stand " so near and yet so l?r': and see our own fond hopes perish; The proceeds of the evening amountj ed to $43.30. This, together w^ previous contribution0, will make nearly $70 from Batesburg. Miss Quattlebaum is still soliciting contributions, and we hope at an ea ly day to see at Lexiugton jCou House a befitting monument to oi Confederate dead. Now, Messrs.
