ON TUB WINO.
DABLINOTON C. H., S. C. July.
On Sunday last I had the pleasur e of at?
tending service in the Methodist church in this
place. This being the time for the quarterly
meeting of tho circuit, the Presiding Elder,
Rev. J. R. BOYD, preached. The life and
character of JOB formed the subject of his very
interesting discourse. Warm as it was, I
listened for one hour with unflagging atten?
tion, wondering all the while that the idea had
never struck me before of considering JOB as
one of Us-a Southern man. Dr. B. drew a
striking analogy between the fate of the man
of Uz and of our country, between Ins friends
and comforters and ours. By the latter I
presume he meant the 'Democratic'party,
though he did not say so. May the parallel
hold good in the part for us yet to come, and
our latter end be more prosperous than we
were before the .misfortune of war overtook us.
The Methodist Church in Darlington is a
large, commodious, and handsome structure,
presenting both within and without a neat and
tidy appearance. They have an excellent
choir here, supported by a melodeon, which
was skilfully played by a lady formerly of
Charleston. Of religious denominations the
Baptist, ' I believe, takes the lead; being the
first established and the most numerous. They
also have a handsome church, but are at pres?
ent without a pastor; the Rev. Mr.. BK.ALEO,
who for a number of years had sustained that
relation to the congregation, having recently
accepted a call from Norfolk, Va. The Rev. A.
J, STAFFORD a graduate of Wofford Collegof
S. C., is the pastor of the Methodist Church;
and the venerable Rev. WM. BBEABLY has for
years been the shepherd of the Presbyterian
flock at this place.
The colored people have two churches of
their own, one Northern Methodist and one
Baptist. The black sheep appear to have no
predilection for white shepherds. On the con?
trary they are decidedly homochromatic in
their tendencies, believing that a colored
preacher only dan fully appreciate the doubts
and perplexities that harrass the colored mind;
he alone can minister comfort to the troubled
colored soul. Owing to the foreign influences
that have been brought to bear upon the ne?
groes, they have almost .everywhere become
entirely alienate d^from their former pastors;
especially is th is the case in the Methodist
Church. There are, however, two pretenders
to the vacant throne: Northern Methodism on
the one hand, ?nd African Methodism on the
other, both of whom are industriously present?
ing their several claims. The former has the
advantage of superior organization, and an un?
limited command of men and means, counterbal?
anced, however, in a great measure, by the
prejudice in favor of the color of the African
M. E. Church. It is fair, therefore, to as?
sume that as soon as the students of the colored
Theological Seminary in Charleston (under the
auspices of the white Northern Methodist
Church) shall go forth, the field that is black
for tho harvest will be almost exclusively
There was a good academy here formerly ;
but the building was seized by the military as
public property on the occupation of the vil?
lage, and the teacher and school turned out of
doors. It has served as a barracks ever since.
A large and handsome United States flag is
floating to the breeze in front of it on top of a
tall liberty pole. .
Like every visitor to his town, I was struck
by its many large and handsome shade trees.
Such oaks (water and willow oaks mostly, I
believe), are rarely to be met with away from
their native forrest. These trees are seen all
over the place, in the front yards of the private
residences, and on the public square. Some
of them, we were informed, had been trans?
planted hither from their native seaside soil in
Christ Church Parish. For the comfort of
the Dryads which remained behind, we will
here state that the emigrants are in a most
thriving and flourishing condition in the home
of their adoption. A few trees were destroyed
by the fire last year ; others have been planted
in their stead, in greater number and regulari?
ty, and in a few years this square will present
one of the finest oak groves in the State.
Darlington is the military centre of the Rast?
ern sub-District, and the headquarters of Capt.
H. S. HAWKINS, of the Clh U. S. Infantry. The
garrison is composed of one company. The
men arc said to be very orderly and under ex?
cellent discipline. Indeed I should have been
surprised to have heard any other report of
any part of the regiment commanded by Gen.
CLITZ. Captain or Major HAWKINS (I forget
which is the correct title) ; is very much liked,
spoken of among the citizens as a high-toned
gentleman, and as offering a striking contrast
to some of the officers who preceded him.
The notorious Rev. WHITTEMORE has his
headquarters here. I did not learn his exact
position. But from all I could gather, I came
to thc conclusion that he sustains the triple
character of preacher, teacher and bureau
agent, and is ambitious, moreover, to engraft a
fourth role-that of politician-upon his already
multifarious engagements. I was told that he
is the superintendent of a large and well-gov?
erned school, taught by several Northern ladies.
Mr. W. is active and energetic, and has given
proof of considerable talent for organization in
the establishment of schools. That his effort
at religious propagandise, have not been crown?
ed with equal success is perhaps due, first, to
the fact that he is of the wrong color, as wc
have already intimated above; and perhaps still
more because his aim is not single, as is ex
pected to be the case in a religious teacher.
In short, Mr. WHITTEMORB wants to go to Con?
gress, and from what we have recently seen by
his tour to Bennettsville, he clearly prefers the
African route. He is conscious of being of the
wrong color; but if there is any cure for leuco
phobia, Mr. W. is determined to find and
He eschews all intercourse with "plain"
people, associates, eats and sleeps exclusively
with the newly enfranchised-at least he does
so wheu on his travels-leaving nothing un?
tried in order that he may overcome this unac?
countable prejudice of his friends against raen
of white complexion.
Poetic justice requires that such assiduous
devotion should not go unrewarded ; but, alas !
that we should be compelled to say it, the sky
looks dark. Mr. W. will not find the canvass
as smooth sailing as he had a right to antici?
pate. The primeval curse will often suggest
itself to him, apropos of his new-born oppo?
sition, "In the sweat of thy brow," etc. There
is in the northwestern part of Marlboro Dis?
trict an old colony of free negroes, who have,
for three generations, enjoyed all the privi?
leges and immunities of their white neighbors.
One of these has taken tho stump for Congress.
Aaron Sweat is the name of this colored Moses,
who is to take his people unto the promised
land. And by way of fully acting out tho an?
alogy, it is understood that he tells his igno?
rant and credulous hearers that they are thc
people of God, and we the Canaanites, who
must be dispossessed from the land and exter?
minated. This is a formidable opponent, cal?
culated to throw a damper on the ardor of the
too sanguine WHITTF.MOHE.
I would not wish to be misunderstood. Mr.
W. has a right to run for any office ho likes,
and to choose his associates, wheresoever, and
from among whom he pleases, and what I have
said above, Mr. EDITOR, is merely for the in?
formation of jour readers, who I think should
be pul in possession of every movement of a
political, or even quasi-political character.
More anon. TRAVELLER.
IGNORANT PEOPLK are always prejudiced
against what they do noi understand, and not
unfrequently conceive a supci ?tit Lous antipathy
to things very innocent in themselves. We all
know the difficulties of the census takers.
SAM. LOVER tells a good story in his "Irish
Legends," illustrating this point: He took a
sketch of a pretty group of dogs at an Irish
Country inn. While doing it, noticed the peo?
ple of thc house looking mysteriously at each
other, and then at him ; but be paid no atten?
tion to it. In the evening, when he returned
from his day's jaunt to this same village and
inn, he saw a number of dead dogs hanging
from trees. What could it mean ? He inquir?
ed, and, after considerable trouble, ascertain?
ed that he had been the innocent cause of this
murder of canine innocents. The people who
saw him take his note book, and "take down"
the dogs in it, instinctively came to the con?
clusion that he belonged to the "Internal
Revenue Bureau," and was going to report
them for a tax. This spread in the village,
and so all dogs that were not "down" already
went "up." The London Times notices the ab?
surd and unreasonable prejudice of farmers
against statistics of stock, crops, &c. England
has to thank the cattle plague for getting rid of
some of this prejudice. Farmers saw that if
cattle were dying at a frightful rate, and if
Government had to see to compensation and
face the gap in the supplies, it had a right to
ask for figures. So they returned their cattle,
and by this time they are sensible of the fact
that no harm has come to them in consequence,
the real confusion in their minds has always
been that they could not distinguish between
general and local information, and imagined
somebody wanted to pry into their private
affairs, and to turn the knowledge against
them. They did not see that all the returns
would pass through one office, and come out
in comprehensive results, that would do nobody
any harm, and might do everybody some good.
Indeed, there is no one who is so much in?
terested in knowing the prospects of the har?
vest as the farmer himself. Of course he
.vants to know whether to sell or not, and
what crops to try his luck with next year.
TUE CROPS.-The accounts that reach us
from all parts of the District in relation to thc
crops, since the recent rains, are very discour?
aging. In some sections of the District the
prospect is represented to be less favorable
than at this time last year. The corn crops are
said to have sustained great damage by the re?
cent prolonged season of wet weather, and lt
is estimated that this crop will fall at least one
third short. In the neighborhood of Black
Mingo it rained fourteen days consecutively,
and the water reached a higher mark in Mingo
Crc k than has ever been known before by the
"oldest inhabitants." In this section particu?
larly the crops are greatly injured.
Rev. Dr. Whitefoord Smith, delivered an ap?
propriate and very eloquent discourse, on Sun?
day last, in the College Chapel, to a large and
appreciative audience, on the above occasion.
The text was taken from Proverbs, 19th chap,
and 27th verse. " Cease my Bon to hear tho
instructions, that causeth to err from the
words of knowledge.-Spartan.
COMPLETION OP THE CONOAREE RAILROAD
BRIDGE.-We have received an invitation from
the "venerable" Mr. Thomas W. McKewn, and
Mr. J. W. Lassalle, one of the contractors, to
be present this morning, at 9 o'clock, and wit?
ness the crossing of the passenger train over
the new and substantial bridge which has just
been erected over thc Congaree River for the
South Carolina Railroad Company. A barbecue
is to be given on the occasion, and we have no
doubt that a pleasant day will be spent. In
our next issue we shall endeavor to give a full
description of the bridge-likewise the bar?
AN UNFORTUNATE STRANGER.-We arc inform?
ed that, some ten days ago, a man named Mc?
ilwaine was found lying nt thc gate near the
residence of Rev. J. R. Mulhouse, on the Pen?
dleton road, evidently poor and in a distressed
condition. He wus quite ill, and was taken
into the house and was cared for by Mr. Mill
house and family. On Sunday night last the
unfortunate man fell from an up-stairs window
and dreadfully broke and mangled his thigh,
and consequently greater attention is requisite
than before.-Anderson Intelligencer.
MELANCHOLY ACCIDENT.-We regret to learn
of tho death by drowning, of two young ladies,
which occurred on Saturday last at St. Johns
Mills, about two miles below Jacksonville.
The sad particulars, as communicated by tele?
graph, are as follows :
Miss Loula Poullen, the only child of Mr. F.
A. Poullen, formerly of Savannah, but now an
officer of the Augusta and Savannah Railroad,
and Miss Rosa L'Engle were bathing nt thc
above named place, when they unfortunately
got out of their depth and were both drowned
before assistance could reach them.
Their bodies were recovered, and buried on
Dr. STONE, late of the Park street. Church,
Boston, has a liberal congregation in San Fran?
cisco. His salary is $7200 a year in gold. On
the anniversary of his arrival, the other day,
his house was filled with members of his
Church, who gave him a purse of $250 in
gold, and announced that hereafter the Church
would pay his house rent. Mrs. STONE was
presented with a silver service.
Letters from Rome state that the excavations
at Astria, which have been carried on princi?
pally at the Pope's expense, have lately been
rewarded by important discoveries. These in?
clude seven marble statues of great beauty,
and a variety of ornamental sculptures.
The English Money Market.
Neither the favorable harvest weather nor tho
arrival of a farther quarter of a million of gold
from America have baa thc sliehtest influence on
tho funds. Tho public, who purchased largely a
month ago, ore unable to resist the temptation to
realize the five per cent, profit that has accrued,
and are satisfied for the present to let the proceeds
lie idle at their bankers', who in their turn find it
difficult to obtain employment for it at two per
cent. Thus far it is evident tho reviv il of financial
confidence has scarcely ma Jc any progress either
in Paris or London. The unparalleled accumu?
lation of bullion, and the low rates of discount,
have rendered it impossible to obstruct a certain
advance in the prices of tho fonds ; but the inhe?
rent feeling of distrust is almost as strong as ever,
and consequently when holders ciscover that they
can actually obtain a fair profit on their original
investments they rush to secure it &s if there
could be no hope of its permanence. A similar
tandency pervades every department of trade, and
by checking all orders for foreign goods, except
such os aro indispone able, increases tho prospect
of a large continuance ot the influx of bullion.
The possibility of another indifferent harvest
constituted tho only apparent contingency that
might be likely to tura the tido, and now that
the promise of abundance seems to be daily
strengthened tho problem as to the point the
plethora in the money market is likely to reach,
and the mode in which it will ultimately find de?
velopment, becomes more than ever interesting.

COST OF THE EMPIRE.-According to French
estimates submitted to the Corps L?gislatif,
the whole expenditure made in the attempt to
