THOS. J. ADAMS,.EDITOR WEDNESDAY, NOV. 7,1S94. Gen. Hampton has found his registration certificate and voted in Columbia yesterday. About 5,000 gallons of illicit whiskey was reized in Columbia last week, and no owner could be found for it. The most deusely settled State is Rhode Island, the second is Massa chusetts. The former has 318,44 inhabitanfs to the square square mile, the latter has 279,48. Australia is a country without orphan or an orphanage. Every waif is taken to the receiving house, where it is kept until a countrv home is found for it. An agricultural society offered a premium for the best means of ir rigation. A farmer reading it ir ritation, took his wife to the fair, feeling sure he would win the price. Alexander III, Czar of Russia, is dead and his son Nicholas has succeeded to the throne under the title of Nicholas II. The new Czar is soon to marry Princess Alix, of Hesse, a granddaughter of Queen Victoria. Hon. W. J. Talbert proposes to canvass the State next year after the adjournment of Congress for the Alliance principles. He is confident a general revival and firm up building can be brought about. This canvas he proposes to make at his own expense. Two violent earthquake shocks were felt in the city of Mexico on Saturday afternoon last at 4 o'clock, with four minutes intermission. During the vibrations the earth seemed to rock like a ship on the ocean. Natives fell to their knees in the streets praying frantically. Gov. Tillman has decided to have the face of the male figure of the State seal hereafter to be made in the likeness of Gen. Moultrie, and that of the female figure a likeness of the face of Miss Geiger, of Lexington county, a descendant of Emily Geiger, the Revolution-j ary heroine. President Cleveland sets apart Thursday, Nov. 29th, on which to give thanks to Almighty God for our preservation as a nation, for our immunity from disease pestil ence, for the harvests that have re warded our husbandry, for a re newal of national prosperity and for every advance in virtue had in telligence that has marked our) growth as a people. One hundred and two students have matriculated at the South Carolina College, and the total nvmber of students now on the rolls is 142. The denominational tendencies of the students are as follows: Presbyterian, 40; Meth odist, 44; Episcopal, 27; Baptists, 20; Lutheran, 6; Associate Re formed Presbyterian, 4 ; Catholics, 3; Hebrews, 2. There are four young ladies attending classes. Application will be made to the next Legislature for the creation and erection of four new counties in South Carolina. Two of these are to be made out of Edgefield county. It will be well for our people to remember that ir. union is strength. Disintegration is the forerunner of dissolution and deg radation. Big counties make big men; little counties make min ows sparrows and tomtits. AWAKING TO THIS SITUA TION. The New York World says : "The price of cotton is so low that its continuance will cause suffering in New York City as well as in the South. Wheo the price of the crop on which we rely so largely to settle our debts with Europe gets below the cost of production we :nust either do something to stop it or suffer for not doing it."

THERE IS NO USE TO KICK Any Longer-Negroes Vote for! the Recalcitrant and Pertina cious Pope, But Even the Little Towns Sit Down on Him, and Give Evans a Majority. From all we can gather at this writing, Tuesday night, there is-no doubt but that the regular Democratic ticket has carried the State by a hand some majority. . Our advices arc almost altogether from the towns and cities, and except ing Columbia and Charleston, Evans has beaten Pope in these, which were supposed to be his, Popes, strongsholds. For instance in Abbeville, Camden, Newberry, Cheraw, Rock Hill, Batesburg, Green wood, and Aiken, Pope re ceived 1209 votes, while Evans received 1778. Calurn bia gave Pope 600 and Evans 100. In Charleston the vote was very light, but no figures are given. . We have no advices from the precincts in the country, but the smaller towns give Evans a majority. There is no question as to the fact that thc whole State ticket has peen overwhelmingly elected. LATER. 9:30 Wednesday morning ing. Through the kindness of Agent Taylor we are shown the following telegram: "Evans beats Pope by 3 odds. Constitutional conven tion doubtfnl. Hill, of New York, beaten by one hundred thousand votes. Black beats Watson in Georgia. [For the ADVERTISER. Now and Then. The big meetings and the camp meetings of the olden times were enjoyed and participated in hy almost the whole country. At Gilgal, Mt. Enon, etc., were large gatherings of the Baptist per suasion. The Methodists had their annual meetings at Moore's, Mt. Vernon, and Bethlehem. Having attended most of these in person, I think much good re sulted therefrom. A week and sometimes more they continued and ministers from farand near were in attendance. The gathering of the tribes were both pleasant and social, helping to keep up kindly feeling among the people. The hospitality and good feeling was remarkable, and in contrast with the now, then compared favorably. With our old time preachers we had as much zeal, and perhaps less learning. Dr. Johnson. Manly, Chiles, Trapp, Branson, Peterson, and others among the Baptists, and Townsend, Moore, Pickett, Danily, etc., of the Methodist persuasion. Now wa have fine houses of wor ship and more show, but have we more religion? I doubt it. Then a man's word was about equal to his note of hand, and reliance was placed each on the other, and sel dom was it ever mipplaced. Things, of course, have changed. Times .ire not what they "useterwas," but :;he cry of business is such now that twists and turns are made in place of reliance and patience be tween man and man. With the present price of our staple, cotton, what are the people to clo, unless mutual forbearance is used? Pay all you can and trust to the Great Giver of all good to help in the future is the only chance. OLD REGIME. Facts About the Tnormvell Or phanage. It began operation twenty years ago with a half dollar in the treas ury. It is now supporting over one hundred and thirty orphans, an nually, at a cost of one thousand dollars a month. The orphans are from the Pres byterian, Methodist, Episcopal, Lutheran, Baptist, and six other denominations, from every South em State, and some Northern; from every profession and station in society. They are educated religiously and intellectually by the Institu tion ; and in addition every boy and girl is qualified by learning some trade, to support themselves. Their support comes from the voluntary gift of God's people. Provisions and clothing and money -all such gifts make up the sum annually needed. Yes, help is needed now. On the 1st day of November there was not one dollar in tha treasury, and none expected save from the hand of the Almighty Father. The Orphanage is located at Clinton, S. C. The town has three railroads to carry in gifts of pro visions. Rev. Wm. P. Jacobs is its head, to whom gifts of money may be sent. This is the mouth for the thanks offering. Next month is for Christ mas offerings; and the next for New Year's offerings. Which shall it be? Prospects Good. DALLAS, Texas, Nov. 5.-The cot ton situation continues to favor the biggest crop ever raised in Texas. Thc weather is still bright, balmy, warm, and perfectly clear. Bottom, middle, and top crop seem full. Many farmers speak of abandoning what is left. They say it will scarcely pay the expense of picking, packing, ties, ginning, and marketing. They scantly know what else to do unless the price is considerably raised. It is certain that thousands of bales raised will never betaken from the stalks. Just about now everybody is swearing that he will not plant a seed of cotton next year. Almost any of the common products of the soil of Texaa will pav better, such as corn, oats, or wheat. As proof this three or four times the usual area of fall wheat is being sown. Assassins in Greenville. GREENVILLE, NOV. 3.-About sun down this evening a cold blooded attempt to murder was made about tws miles from Greers on the Southern Railway. William Pear son, a well-to-do-farmer, was am bushed and shot three times, two bullets entering his side and one j.assiug through the arm. For some years a grudge has existed between the families of Pearson and Duncan, who live only a mile apart. Three months ago Pearson and one of the Duncans had a quarrel over the old family feud which resulted in a fight and Duncan got whipped. This after noon three of the Duncans were at Greers heavily armed. Pearson was also in town. The Duncans started home and had time to get to their home before Pearson left. Pearson started home and when two miles from town was ambush ed and shot. There is very little hope of his recovery. The Dun cans made their escape. STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA, EXECUTIVE CHAMBER.
