As this ia likely to be the caso it is
I the duty of the Republican "party to be
I gin now to prepare for the contest. Our
I house should be put in thorough order,
I our armor burnished up, and our eyes
H sot firmly upou victory for our State
H and National organizations.
It will not do for this country to be
I turned over to the Democracy. The
I mission of tho Republican party has not
I yet been fulfilled, nud wc arc quite suro
I that it never would bo were tho Demo
I crats to attaiu to power just now. The
H colored man needs to be hotter oducated
H and made stronger in his power to pro
I tcct the rights of his race, before turn
I ing over this government to his enomies
I Once this is accomplished it will not'
I matter so much whothtr there be any
I party at all or not. The colored people
H will then have become sufficiently euligh
H toned to take care of themselves. But
I now it behooves them to stand firmly
I by tho priuciples of their party, aud soo
I to it that its banner shall not be trailed
I in tho dust in cousequcuco of lethargy
I on their part. Party lines should be
I strictly drawn and uouo but faithful
H Republicans bo put ou guard. Traitors
H should bo driven from- our ranks, aud
I .thus purified wo should continue stoad
I fast in our devotion to tho party. Wo
I should considor it a crime in a member
I to'desert its organization upun any ab
I struct question or in allowing himself to
H become indifferent iu cousequonco of
H tho disappointment of some petty umbi
I tion. Iu this State wo havo every reason
I for supporting the Republican party.
I It has been shown by Gov. Chauiburlain
I that Ropublieanism is not inconsistent
I with good Government, and that all
I tho people prosper alike whore the laws
I are properly administered. We do not
I believe tho latter would Do tho case un
I dorn Democratic administration. Clover
I nor Chamborlaiu has brought quiet out
I of confusion and has dono much towards
I restoring iho credit of tho State, which

Iu view of the same showing, two of

tion recommending censure to be
passed on him. Now, for what ? No
charge of atealige, no uvidence to prove
crime. There was owideuco iu An

pay certificates and the} like. Uufortuu
ately, not only he, put many other
worthy citizens, mercjbants, Ac, have
dealt in these trudeublet papers to their
financial injury. This, whole question
was elaborutely discusUcd. The main
point of difference bejing, whether to
cupel or censure. The v!ot-j was taken to
expel first. There were 19 votes against
expulsion, of these the ;e were 4 Cou
?ervatives, myself amo ig thorn, nod
two of these were emiujeut Democratic
lawyers; in favor of expelling thoro were
12 votes, throe of these; arc Democrat,
tho remainder, 9 are Kk'publictina, two
were absent. It would pave taken 22
votes to hbvc expelled. We were
expecting to voto on the resolution to
censure the Senator. On this point
thcro was considerable diobatc whether
to censure was rquivuleut to oxpul
uiou or not. A few Senators thought it
was not. 1 took my part in this dc
bate, lavoring the resolution to censure,
and closed by toying, "if 1 err in this
vot e 1 pref er to err on the side of mercy
and justice, rather than soil my con
science in aiding to fix infamy on a man
a nd his family on unsatisfactory
grounds." In the confusion of tho do
bate, this resolution was withdrawn, aud
the Senate adjourned, aud so no direct
voto wns taken.

Well the News and Courier is brought

only Conservative voting with the ma
jority, I would huvo a special uotiee,
but us there were more I thought that
not much would bo said. This was a
reply to a question asked me about it
by some one. It to turned out, ns usu

But of mo they expect nothiug," of
course not. I have fully provod to them |

A Tournament.
Editor Or ongeburrj lVctc8 :
I sec in the JVeus and Courier of the
30th of December 1874, a correspond
ence signed A M B, which preteuds to
give a detail of a Touruament that came
off on that day at tho lovely ami pleas
ant little village of Hamburg. Now
Mr. Editor, I think that tho correspond
cut must havo had something in viow
more thnn some other persons who wit
nessed the scene. I know for ono that
it is in Bcveral instances wrongly repre
sented, for what purpose I do not know.
Perhaps the correspondent is one of the
fair sex and bad gone there with the
expectation of being cr?wned Queen of
love nnd beauty. Tho correspondent
said that much "di-satisfaction was
caused in the awarding of tho first
prize, a ud that there was scar, e'y one pre
sent but who was fully convinced that in
prize it belonged to the gallant Knight
ol tho West. Mr. Editor, this is a
mistake, for I am fully conviuced that
the majority of tho spectators were of
opinion that the Knight of the flook
and Ladder was fully entitled to the
honor thut was awarded hitn. In the
next place A M B says that in taking
the ride over on account of the twisted
track he took three rings. I say ho
only rede 1 or the one and took it. Ths
judges then announced a tie between
-the .two Knights viz : Hook aud
Ladder aud the West. The next ride
decided the question, the Knight of the
Hook and Ladder taking nil three rings
and the Knight of the West, I think,
teok only one. Mr. Editor I cannot
think it possible that such honorably,
straight forward gentlemen, its tho
judges seemed to be, would be so much
biased us to give un u jubt decision in
auy nhtlter, especially such an impor
tant one as that was. Mr. Editor,
allow tue in conclusion to give niy opin
ion why A M li attempts to try to
mistily the public and toko lb;; honor
from oue Knight and bestow it upon
another, and that is this: His (or her)
preference was so biased in favor of
that sociable, pleasant, loviug little
village, that he (or she) could not bear
for n Knight of Orangcburg County to
have the honor of bearing off the first
_?_-?Tr-T"-???_ i_Hi .?
Numerous coniplnints with regard to the
l'ost Oflice under my control, having come
to my ears, it is due to the public and to
myself that nn explanation be made.
On account of bad health, which disabled
me, nnd on nccounl of the loss of the valu
able services of Mr. J. S. Bull, whoa system
and ability, ensured my respect and con
fidence in the entiro manugment of the
office, 1 was obliged to obtain a
Deputy familiar with the routine of
business, and securing Mr. Ezokiel, removed
the ollice to bis store, that he might give
the more undivided attention to it.
Had Mr. Hull not received a better offer
thnn I could afford tomako I would atil|
have had his valued help. And bnd he
remained with mo I would not havo re
moved tho oflice. Had my own health been
better, I might have seen less occasion t o
move the oflice.
