The Richmond Dispatch says of Gen?
eral Preston's address:
"Last evening, at 8 o'clock a very largo
select aa di ance assembled at the Brond
streotj-Methodist Church to hear the
address of General John S. Freston, of
Colombia. B. C. The orator, who is a
gentleman of very commanding appear?
ance, was listened to with great atten?
tion, and, delivered an address full of
classic eloquence, and which waa made
doubly interesting by the earnest and
beautiful delivery of the speaker. He
reviewed, ita-the'liveliest manner, the
noble-efforts oE our ancestors in the es?
tablishment of the right of self-go ve m
meat and the suppression of tyranny,
and pointed to tho duty of the present
generation in the accomplishment of the
glorious future promised to Virginia.
He spoke for about an hour and a half,
and kept bis audience very much inte?
rested. At thc conclusion of his address
Mr. Lyons moved that a vote of thanks
bo tendered tho speaker, and that he be
requested to furnish the Society with a
copy foi publication. Tho motion was
carried unanimously."

Hy hi* Excellency HO Ii SH TE. SCOTT, Go?
vernor of the State of South, Carolina.
WHEREAS, information has been received
at this Department, that portions of
the Couuty of Sumter, in said State, sue in- i
fested by bands of lawless aud unprincipled |
men, who, under pretext of suppressing illicit j
traffic in cotton, have wilfully and maliciously
set tiro to and consumed the storehouses of |
citizens, and openly avow their determination |
of perpetrating similar outrages upon the pro- j
porty of others, unless the threatening notices
served upon them by theso wrong-docra aro
promptly obeyed; and whoreas, these unlaw?
ful parties are regularly organized, armed and
mounted, and, disguised in fantastic cos?
tumes, prowl about at night, in bodies too
slroug to bo confronted or arrested by the
peace officers of the Countv, and this, in dero?
gation of the laws, in violation of the peaoo
and good ordor of the community, and tho jeo?
pardizing of the lives and property of the citi?
Now, therefore. 1, BOBEBT K. SCOTT, Go?
vernor of tho Stato of South Carolina, do hore
bv issue this, my proclamation, enjoining and i
I directing all Magistrates, Sheriffs, and other j
j officers of tho peaco, in said County of Sumter,
to bo faithful, vigilant and active iu the up?
holding of tho laws and in tho discharge of
their duties, and especially in ferreting ont,
and bringing to punishment, the perpetrators
of these nefearious outrages; and I would I
earnestly invoke tho aid of tho law-abiding j
citizens of tho County, of those who have an
interest in its reputation and prosperity, tln.t I
they all discountenance ana discourage all
measures and proceedings tending to violence |
and insubordination, and especially those
which would substitute for the peaceable pro?
cess of tho law the torch of the incendiary. i
Incendiarism, at all times and places, is a
erimo of tho gravest magnitude, but it? terri?
ble teachings make it doubly dangerous in a
community liko our?. If thoso who pie tend to
possess the property, tho intelligence and tho
morality nf the community resort to it, under
tho pretence of enforcing law, or punishing
dishonesty, they moat not bo surprised if
others, not so favored, smarting undera senso
of injustice and wrong, by which, perhaps,
they nave lieen defrauded of the hard-earned
proecods of their labor, ?nd their families de?
prived of food, clothing and shelter, (and BUch
cases aro not nnlroquent. ) should resort to tho
same summary process for redress. Tho pro?
tection of law being withdrawn from property,
sud a self-constituted and irresponsible body
of individuals assuming to ihemselves the
power of pronouncing upon the guilt or inno?
cence of individuals, alleged to bo dishonest,
but too frequently because they aro personally
or politically obnoxious to their accusers, the
dood-gates of anarchy and crimo aro at once
opened; antagonistic associations will be or?
ganized, and tho community becomo the prey
of hostile factions, (primarily excitod hy re?
venge, but which will eventually be character?
ized by plnnder and license, and tho exhibi?
tion ot tho worst passions of human nature.
Tho lurid glare of tho mid-night torch will
light np many a peaceful neighborhood to
scenes of desolation and plunder, and to at?
rocities, at tho mero allusion to which hu?
manity shudders, and which every good citi?
zen, every lover of his kind, all who valuo and
honor tho reputation and prosperity of the
Stato, should ardently deprecate and devote
their most strenuous exertions to prevent and
{(Sit is my duty and determination to uso all
' Ibo measures at my disposal to put a stop to
j proceedings that may lead to such deplorable
1 results; and with thia purpose 1 have sum
! monod to tho aid of tho peace offiers of said
County the armed polico of thc Stato. Should
I this bo insufficient in arroeting and anppress
I ing theso ?Mogal proceedings, howovor much I
may regret tho necessity, I shall placo the
County of Sumter under martial law, and in
voko tho entiro povrer of the Stale in re-estab?
lishing tho supremacy of tho laws.
In testimony whereof, I havo hereunto set my
hand, and caused the groat seal of tho
' Stato to bo aii'u 'ul, at Columbia, this 8th
day of Novomber, A. D. 1869, and in the

TIVE COMMITTEE.-Quito an interesting
incidont occurred yesterday afternoon, at
tho Fair Grouuds. This was tho formal
turning over of the grounds and buildings
by the City Council of Columbia, to the
Executivo Committee ol" the Stato Agri-1
cultural and Mechanical Society. The
Mayor and Aldermen were present, and
of the Executive Committee, were,
General Hagood, Secretary Aiken, and
Messrs. Wallace, Palmer aud Thomas.
1 The Mayor made tho following remarks:
Mr. Presiilcnt, and Members of the State
Executive Committee.
Allow me, gentlemen, on behalf of the
city of Columbia, to transfer to your
keeping the buildings and grounds for
the use of tho Stato Agricultural and,
Mechanical Fair. They aro not what tho
city would desire; you must take the will
for the deed; such as they are, the Socie?
ty is made most welcome I need not
dwell on the poverty of our city; that you
may bo conversant with, for every South
Carolinian knows full well how our city
suffered. Property-private, as well as
public-was destroyed ; the finances at a
low ebb; the citizens, for over three
months, fed at ration houses, contribut?
ed by tho State, and our neighbors of
Georgia; in fact, we were reduced to
pauperism; but thanks to Him who rules
the destiny of men ns well as nations, for
planting in tho hearts of those of our
citizens who survived tho tried ordeal
through which they had to pass, a deter?
mined spirit, joined with manly energy,
resolving in their minds to rebuild and
recuperate this our fuir city; and, Mr.
President, considering tho disadvantages
under which they labored, tboy have per?
formed wonders; our streets have put on
something of a business aspect; and time
nnd opportunity is nil that is required to
placo our Capitol where was her wont, as
? fuir and beautiful as any in the land. Our
I citizens' cnorgy has been exemplified in
erecting this building and laying out
these grounds. Tho Fair was folked of
at a late day, and tho citizens called upon
thc City Council to take tho matter in
hand, and they did. Tho only excuse,
gentleme.n, we have to offer for tho uu
linished state of tho building, is a want
of means-time and means-two very
important levers to work with. Such as
they aro, you aro welcome, thrice wel?
come; and may tho undertaking in which
you are engaged be crowned with that
succoss to which you are justly entitled,
and may it provo tho harbinger o?a glo?
rious future.
General Hagood, President of the So?
ciety, replied as follow?:
Mn. MAYOR: It is with great saUsfution
and something of surprise, that I receive
at your hands the very handsomo con?
tribution which Columbia has made to
onr great Stato enterprise. I say sur?
prise, for, sir, I have been familiar with
effort in the last four years, and T know
tho difficulty with wbioh anything is now
accomplished, with our crippled re?
sources. The grounds you present us
with are ample for our purposes, and
more, thnn wo expected. Something has
been said before this of making tho State
Fairs movable from plnco to place; but
Columbia has nailed tho fact to tho
counter, and nothing will be heard in
tho futuro of South Carolina State Fairs
anywhere but where this is held. I hope,
sir, that you and I will both see tho day
when our State Fairs will rival their pre?
decessors in completeness, and Columbia
will be tho Columbia of former days.
We feel it but right to add, that much
credit is duo to the City Council for their
efficient and liborul course in this matter.
In a short time, and with limited means,
they have erected a handsomo and com?
modious building; have put up the stalls
needed, and placed the grouuds in an ex?
cellent condition. We doubt not that
tho investment will provo an ndmianble
one to the city.
