TWO DOLL AUS PER ANNUM, y I, , .. I VOLUME 8. GOD' A.JNTD 0]CJT^ COTT^TItYV ALWAYS IN-?DVANO E. SATURDAY MORNING, AUGUST 8, 1874. NUMBER 27 IN MEMORIA?. Mus. Ella M. Frederick, the ber loved wife of John P. Frederiek Esq., %ho died in Oraugoburg CJouuty, on *tho Mth of July 1874 in the 30th year of hor agc.^ Expression has no holier office than eulogy. A'human death is distinguish cd from tho universal dissolution arounil it, by the cherished memories which find utterance in post funebriul tributes In this consists our lower spirituality, our earthly immortality, in this memor ial incident, and character. The truth ?of the religious sentiment, that <lit is not nil to die" is here bcuuteously por 1 rayed in the being remembered and unourned lor after douth. Uuliko tlic ccasoless death of Natura, of which it has btcn said that "the cxiiuustless -nutriment of oxistence is decay," our humanity dolioatcly but imperiously msserts its individuality in that each ?closed life in loved a.id lamented for its ?own peculiar features of loveliness und worth. Shakspcnrc, who touches so, dexterously the springs of human ?cumit ion, says: ( . ? Praising what is lost e"<1 Makes tlie remembrance dear. and it is a truth that the rarest (lowers < f Poetry the most polished -periods of " rhetoric as well as the cost liest and most elaborate monuments hive seived to perform the offices of panegyric. The glittering gems of thought set in poet ics caskets of diction, as well as the hypopeum, the obelisk and the pyra mid have lent their amplest efforts tu eulogize the. dead. Is this not well/? TJsc ju^snn j)f iyii veisal truth, so hard to take to heart, which is taught by all vuoh deaths as this, is better learned and pre.-c ved in the memorial tribute. 'vTVlien l> nth ?itrikcs down the iuuoccut and go ul, from every fragile form, from whieh ho ?sets the parting spirit freo, a'huudrod Virtues rise, in shapes of mercy, charity ?Vnd Iqvc to walk the world and bios it Of every tear that j sorrowing! moft ils shed on such preen graves, some good is ..? I /T It, it in r Ltrn, some gentler mittlre comes. In the Destroyer's steps there spring up bright crcatious that defy his power and 'his dark path becomes way of light tu ?lcaycn." Distant lionrts unite in mourning for 'our dead. - Tho ecottcrcd. wail's of a 'dhmemborcd , household gather with 'those, with whom she was latterly more . nearly associated, around her bier, and weep tributes of praise for all her gentle ?goodness. IJer grave becomes a shrine .'nrtKind which, scattered wnuderers on , the changeful sea of life, and a widowed heait that' yearned with Motherly ycarnings for tho long absent, once,n part of her olden home, meet and kneel together in token of their grief and love. Never has a Jife exhibited through ?a change (til mid cliecqucrod course so. '.changeless a character of unselishncss, g?ntlenes& and affection. In her homo of the o)dcn time these traits made her the patient Iriend, the unwearied confidant, the kind nurse, the affect it.n >ate child and companion; in her asspoiu tions with tho young in after days as their teacher theso traits made her the kind elder sister to the little ones, and tendered '"'love the law of the school;" in her late rclutions and associations these truits mado all her friends, hor kindliness begetting love iu all arouud her; these traits endeared her husband to her with a tenderness of a fleet ion laicly seen eveu among those whose n.juried lifo is cemented by unfaltering love;' these traits of gcntlo affection, of ur.fclftb sj input by Li ought her close to 'the hearts of ull her associates; und 'these traits end aim her memory with ?etetly fiaukinccosc of Jove. The power ?of nitrrction iu her affectionate nature to call foilh and secure reciprocal love was n ost conspicuously shown, where it naturally tdionid liavo been?iu tho regnid of her devoted husband. ' The butkling on if I he knight's armor by His lady's band wns no mere caprice of lomuntio fashion. It is the type of an i teirml truth that tho soul's armor is never wtll set to flic heart unless a wo F ?maik'trhhMdhas biiicqd it, and it is only f wfhi thki it loosely that the bun or of manhood fuils." Truly tslic seemed to have brncod the .armor to meet life's battles around her .built lcJ's hmt. He wns ctrcng in tho etreugtb as he was rich in the wealth of her outlasting love. Never moro- admirably was seutimool illustrated thau in hor : (dan's love is of man's life, a thing apart, 'Tis woman's whole existence. Crowned with woman's starry crown of Honor?tho fulfillment of her miss iou in the sphere of home; honored ami blessed with a noble husband's love, fthe has died the highest style of woman. One of "the noble army of Mothers' her little one is left to lisp aud to act out the lessons of her lovo. Frou Heaven, where she stands nnnd the throng of sainted Mothers, high among the Seraphim, near tho Holy Mother of Jesus her spirit, 'he Guardiau Angel of her boy will come to hover around his path and save him from the harming evil. Into his grief, who has left to him but tho phantom Memory of her great live, footsteps of angels will come, and with tlioni a sainted spirit to bless with hallowed influence. Ami her boy! Left to niu^o ami miss the infant, impression of its Mother's caress?hor goodnight kiss ! True is it, that "the shadow of a .mother's tomb grows darker and longer as the idiihl walks on in tho pith her care would have smoothed ! But tuny we i.ot think that tho child who has lost his mother is tho peculiar care of 1 leaver,:'' No life so good and kin 1 and gentle is in vain. Its influence brings bettor thoughts and gentler words and thus hor life has I pen a blessing sadly rc.iliv.cd in her death. X.uvro preaches conso'atim in her h;rdd?f:t v'niood ; sho coveri even'graves with flowers. These speak pjico and im-Yuirtulity.

The best kind of a salesman for thorn dull time-; is an advertisement in a newspaper. It never tiros in its labors, and never shirks^ its duty; it talks to customers when they aro in the be.-d mood to be favorably impressed. It has access to the merchants, the scholar, tho artist, the morchanio and the farmer. It goes unquestioned into tho most private and sacred of retroats. Tho lawyer listens to it while working up his case ; tho doctor dives into it when not divin ing diseases ; tho ladies havo it in their laps whilo leisurely lolling in their boudoirs. It is prcscut in thousands of places ut the same moment. Wcateru New York is raising two crops of potato bugs. Solicitor G W Butte A reporter of the Charleston Daily Sun lms been interviewing Solicitor Buttz. Wo make the following extracts from tho report: Reporter. Major, owing to tho vig orous, prompt and faithful manner in which you have discharged tho duties of your office, since your election there to, two years ago, the proprietors of tho paper I represent, desire to obtain your views upon the political and financial situation of affairs in this State and es pecially in this count)'. Havo you any objection to stating them? MAJOR liUTTZ'S PERSONAL KXM.AN$ TION. Solicitor. I have an objection in I speaking of State nflairs, because 1 would bo required in divulging the truth to condemn tho conduct of so j many men of my own party, that 1 j would destroy my influence to do good with those in power, us well as with j some of those scekkg places at the coming election. And then I have had quite a hitter experience in Virginia,: endeavoring to prevent the bad men of i our party from obtaining control of the same. In th" vcar 1SGS, the Kcpubli cans in \ irgiuia. dufiiVg my absence in Europe, placed tin objcetiohoblo ticket in the field, and upon my return, tho election having boon postponed until lSt'D, 1 advocated a new coiivcnlion and the nomination cf other men. A new I convention was finally called; the result was a disgraceful light it the convou j lion by tho bad men in the party, and I bo nomination of two tickets, ouc I headed by ^11 11 Wells, and the other I C C Walker, for (inventor. I brought into existence the Walker [?ckot, bo i lieving each man on it to be good Ke publicans. The Democracy had their ticket iu the field, headed by Col Withers, of Dynchburg, now -United States Senator elect from that ?State, with but little prospect of success. The)*, however, soon observed their, golden ipporluuity to obtain control of the State by making arrangements with Walker to net with tho Democratic party, tiild thereupon they. Withdrew Col Withers and voted for Walker. He was elected, they treated him kindly until they were in power, and thou saou gave him the cold shoulder. He made a good Governor, but I do not thiuk the Democracy would elect him t3 tho office of constable now; they used him, but have no gratitude. Whcu 1 found tho result of my action at the Peters burg ooureutioD jwas to assist the Democracy I withdrew from the ticket, where 1 had been placed for Congress man at large. In addition to what 1 have stated above, I will add that iu 18G-1, 1 was a delegate to the National Convention that, met in Daltimorc, and which Convention nominated Liucoln for the second time for the Presidency; at that convention a desperate fight was made to have llamlin also rcnoniiuated for Vice President. I took sides in favor of a Southern Union man; the result was, we nominated Andrew John ton for the second place, and when the opportunity arrived he also acted with the Democracy. 1 therolore do not feel as though I .should undertake again to assist in naming the coming man or men, in tho ensuing campaign. I pro pose, however to do all 1 can to advance the interest of good government, aim the claims of honest men. The people are certainly entitled to a justuduMuis tration of it flairs, as they havo been patient and borne the burdens of mis rule to an extent that ?'pationco has almost ceased to bo ;i virtue", Reporter. What about tho political situation of the county ? Solicitor. The most important office in the count y is the Solicitor h office; 11 he dues his duty faithfully, ho can make it very hot for evil doors; but it is a thankless office Every person you prosecute, as well as tho relations of tho defendant, become, und very unjustly to tho personal enemies of tho Solietor; while the honest, law abiding citiy.cn simply says, be is only doing his duty, we pay him for it. Reporter. When will your term cx pirc y Solicitor. The sheriff, coroner, clerk ol court, and myself, were elected lor lour years; wo havo two years from November to servo. BOWEN Ktfh MACICKY. "Reporter. Is it true that Bowen and 51 de key have become 'political friends 'i Solicitor. I have no confidence in it, because it is too woll knowp in the community that Mnckey pursued Boweo beyond a mero political controversy. 116* desperate effort to crush Bo wen was of a strong and personal character, cou eetiuenily I do not believe that Bowen would ever consent to aid Mao key to be Uis'successor in Co pgr ess. Reporter. It is very important to secure intelligent men for jj, THE LEQITL.4TI.tR8. Do you believe there vriil be an improve mcnt this fall ? ?Solicitor. I hope so; avc have cigh tc. i members of the lower Mouse, uud ou?! Statu senator to elect, ami I am sa isliod that not more than four or live of the present members will be re turned. The two most prominent cau djuatcs for State Senator arc S K fiuil lard, the present 'member, and W 11 Thompson, one of tho county commis signers; both are black men of limited education., I believe, however, that XjjbinpHoq will be elected, und if so lie w'xil make a fair rcprcscntali?c\ There is a strong disposition among the more t lioughtiul'Tbd intelligent He piidicans to place on the ticket for the fiMmldre, Iloiiorablus M V, kKCuuuor, licury J!uist and T Y Simons, all three of-whom are regarded us men who Wpuid take a liberal view of the rights <>Y nl) persons and be of humous.: asiUt aiice in bringing about reform In* tho Slate; the only argument I hear against it is that their position would ,60 far restrain them from fully acting with the party in p-iwer that little would be ae c njplishcd by them. t TUE T'*.IAL JUJsTitjKS. . ? Reporter. Is there any truth in the I Teport illiit several of the triul justices in the county cannot write their names ? Solicitor. There arc sis who cannot write a warrant or a correct affidavit for the i.-suiug ef a warrant; they have learned to write their names after u fashion. The trial justices as a class, have very little education and know nothing about law; of course there arc several honorabio oxceptious. 1 lie law limits tiie number in the county, but the Governor has forgo tt-.n the fact and appoints every local politi cian a trial justice. A a great many of them do not understand the difference between a civil and a criminal case;, -a majority of them, however, nro honest in their intentions; but their opportuui ties for educntio'i have been so limited that they have not tho requisite quulifi cations. Hon. .1. JT. It-timicr's Speech. AT Lkwisvillk, OaANdEBUita County'. Mr. Rausicr said that he accepted the unexpected invitation to spoak at the meeting with much diffidence, it be ing about the first, in tho opening cam paign?a campaign of more than ordi nary moment to every man, wo n in and child iu tho State, of whatever political opinion, of wh atever race, or color, be cause importance might be attached to what he might say, owing to the position ho holds; yet he had a 'duty to perform in the interest ofa'l chisus in South Carolina, as a lie pu bit can and a citizsn which he would endeavor to discharge, as l.o has always done. lie said that ho was no 'stranger to the people of Uruiigeburg county, nor to the people of the Statu, that be has held important, positions in the State for tho past nine years, and though he was a poor man to day, with a large family, no man dare sty that he has ever prostituted Iiis ottloo for pri vate gain, or made a dollar "dishonestly out of tho people, or that he wad un mindful Of the rights of politip.ll oppo neiits whilst contending 'for the rights of his race, and advocating the princi ples ofhis? party; thru if tho people thought him unlit for tho discharge of any duty attach to any office to which he might, aspire, it was their duty to ro fuse to voto (or him: for if there evyr was a time in the, history of South Caro lina that the people should refuse to vote for Etfoso whose character 'and an tcccdctits would not afl'jt l a 'reasonable guaranty of security to South Carolina better government than that which cur sos us to day, that time is now. Ho referred to the wort and mission of the Republican party, and quoted from,the address of the National Con gressional Committee to prove*that the work of tho Republican party Jwas not yet finished. He then dwelt at length on the affairs ot the State and the abso lute necessity, for the sake of decency and in the interest of tho black man, as well as tho white man, the non tax payer, as well as the tax payer, and iu the interest of the life of tho Republi can party iu tho Stato and country, of an honest, earnest and united enort to lilt South Carolina out of the unenvia blc position she holds "to day in the eyes of the country. Ire quoted from tho address of the Executive Committee of tho Republican party, and appealed to the colored peo pie to lilt from them, in self defenso, I the .very strong suspicion that thoy arc incapable of good government, J and ask them not to consider for a moment whether a man if a candidate for office was a white man or a black man, a na live of tho State or a m m of Northern birth, but to chooso from them those whom they know to be honest, and whom thoy believed would give to * our State a batter condition of affairs. He said that, after all that is said of the grumbling and bitte- ' complaints by the tax payers of the ^vate, gas he un derstood it, it was not so much our rates or system of taxation of which com ! plaints are made, but the purposes for which the money so derived is spent, njudtthc fact that the people derive I therefrom no proportionate benefit; that j whilst our rates of taxation are high) our public institutions dcpcriditlg upon t his source for support, are but poorly maintained; our educational and other important interests languiih; wc fail to pay the iuterest on our State debt, and have therefore, destroyed confidence in uot only our ability to moot these jnst demands al a State, but Jiu the person al honesty and official integrity of these who make and execute our^ laws. lie said that the sooner wc begin to realize I the situation and to look at those most important issues, not as mere questions of politics as understood iu a contracted sense, bat as vital, material issues, in which the whole comtrou wealth is in terested, irrespective of partia-t, and ap ply the remedy now in our own hands, namely, the eloction of honest, reliable men to office, in whom the people of the State ami the county have confidence, the better for South Carolina, and tho better for all her peoplo. There was an eld couple at the ccn tral depot yesterday waiting to go through to tho West, and thoy seemed loving enough until the old man went out and returned smoking a five cent cigar and with his hat slanting over h*i9 left car. The wife looked at him twice before she could recognize him, and then opened her mouth and said : " What'd I tell ye, Philletus Remington, before we left Now Jersey ? Didu't I say you'd go and make a fool of your self the first chance you got ?" He tried to pacify her by saying that the cigar only cost fivo cents, but she shouted : "You teased and teased till 1 let you git your boots blacked ; then you wanted some soda water ; then you bought apples ou the train, and here's another five cents thrown away ! It all counts up, aud if you dou't die in the poor house thou my name hain't Sary !" ? Detroit Free I'reui A certain "Uncle James of our ac quaintaneo, whoso execution is not quite equal to his prcforoucc for the violin, was paid a delicate lcft^iandcd compliment the other night by his little niece, on being awakened soaio time in tho small hours of tho night by tho hideous performances of two lcliues under the wiudow, naibcly remarked, ".Mama, I don't like to hear Uncle James play on a violin." Alter the proscouiiou attorney had houped vituporation upou tho poor pri souer without counsel, tho Judge asked him if he had auythiug to say for him self. "Your houor," replied the prison er, "I ask for a postponement for oigh tccn days, in order that I may (in 1 a blackguard to answer that ono there." j Obituary or A Western Editob? ?

A Worcester bby was engaged in nocturnal cherry stcaliug a short time ago, and was observed by the owner of the fruit, who, unnoticed by the young robber, placed a large stuffed dog at the foot of the tree and retired to watch tho result of the strategy. The boy descend iog observed the dog, und then the fun commenced; he whistled, threatened uuavilingly, the animal never moving, and finally tho youth accepting tho inevitable, settled down to passiug tho night in tho tree. After some houri had passed wearily enough to the lad, morning dawned, and the proprietor of the. tree coming from the house, aakc4 him how he came to be in the tree, to which the boy answered that ho took to it to save .himself Jfrom the dog, who had chased him quite a distance. It isn't healthy for Ja, smaller boy to say stuffed dog to that youth now.
