SATURDAY, Aprlt~^7wTG. The Convention Last Saturday. ? ~< . As previousely announced the Con vention to elect fivo delegates to the Columbia Convention, which trans pireson the 11th inst., was held in this placo on Saturdny last. County Chairman S. L. Duncan called the delegates to order, and announced the object of .the meeting in a brief ad dress. Then came the fight for tem porary Chairman and secretary. Representative S. L. Duncan and Sheriff E. I. Cain, were put in nomi nation by their respective "friends for Chairman, and Representative W. H. Reedish and Mr. T. K. Sasportas for secretary. There being a contesting dclegatio." from Shcrifl Cain's pro cinct, it was ruled by the chair that if elected he could not take the scat. Hence Mr. Duncan was elected with out' much opposition. Mr. T. K. Snsportns walked over the track for temporary secretary, Mr. Reedish having withdrawn in his favor. After this a committee of thirteen on creden tials was appointed, of which A. F. Browning Esq. was chairman." All the credentials were referred to this committee, and the convention took a recess until such time as the Commit tee signified their readiness to report This recess was occupied by the sup porters of Cain and Duncan in but ton-holing delegates, and stuffing them with the merits of one or the other of these leader?. About 3 o'clock in the afternoon rumor was rife that Cain would be elcctod perma nent Chairman. It is but fair to say that'the Duncanitcs were equally as sanguine of the success of their cho sen one. The convention convened again a little after 4 o'clock on the niter noon when the committee on creden tials ?mode their report, seating the. Caldwell delegation. This sent Cain's stock up, and thu Cainitcs at tested their joy by shouts of "Hurrah for oux JSheriffl Cain, forever, hoys !" &c. A permanent organization was commenced by Cain and Duncan being put in nomination for the chairmanship. At this point Cain rose to a question of privilege and stated that there appeared a statement in the Free Citizen in [regard to him which was. false. The publication was made.;to injure him and to dc ceive^wlftadnds. After a good deal of wt angling and speech making, the vote was called and-resulted in favor of Cain for Chairman5 by a voto of 4S to 2G. The unnbuno'emcut wnsrcccivcd with deafening applause by the Convec tion. Hfr. T.*K. Sasportas was elec ted permanent secretary .without any opposition and-Mr. V. Culler Assis tant Secretary. Au'ele^'Ubri ior fivo delegates was then ^^Jinto, and duL of twenty-five or thirty nominations, E. I. Cain, S. Li. Duncnn, 1\ E. Jone?, Shed i nch Morgan - and John If. Livingston were chosen. The claims of Solomon Felder were strongly advocated by A. F.'Browning, Esq., hut there be ing so many candidates before the Convention the requisite' member were elected before his name on the roll was reached. Upon the whole of it, the selection made by the convention is a good ouo, being strong anil representative in character, and withal moderate but unflinchingly Republican. Sheriff Cain is certainly a very strong man, while Mr Livingston is a ti uc type of the advanced thinkers and intelligent whites of his party. Mcssrdf Lhincnn, Jones and Morgan are also hard workers, and have the confidence6f the people. Before-.closing it is but proper to say that the noise heard in ihc con vention, c?va^9 ..made principally by those who)were admitted upon the floor nS'tfpectatorg, and who violaled the privilege extended to them by endeavoring to participato in the proceedings of the Convention. Neeini! C. W. Caldwell and T. K. | Sasportas were elected alternates to the Convention. This is a good se lection. ( Tho answer to the rule for con tempt issued against W. A. Courtney, Esq., of Charleston, was heard on Wednesday" last. Judge Reed post poned further action in the matter to a day yd to be determined upon. From the Other Side. A correspondent writing to the Nctos and Courier, under date 1st. iust., hnB tho following to say in re lation to politics in this County. It is good sound rending for both parties, and should be pondered by them. We have always been in favor of minor ity representation and hope to sec it yet obtain throughout this entire country. iL puts n safe check upon rash ard con upt majorities, and al ways ensures "a hearing" to both sides. Tho Republicans of Mississippi, Georgia, and other Democratic States, would have been infinitely more com fortable to-day if they had adopted minority rule when they had tficpower to enact it. This paper will al ways be found in favor of fair play, and to that end we reproduce the following : "Whatever may be deemed exped ient in reference to the Stnte nomina tion, we don't think anything would be accomplished by u "straight-out" Democratic nomination in Orange burg County, except the consolida tion of the Radicals. Although "we speak without authority," not being one of the "knowing ones," we think the best thing for the Democrats of this county to do is to keep well organized, and give their two thous and votes to which ever wing of the Republican party is honest, fair and just enough to ac know* I edge the right of "minority representation." It is said that politics is a gamejn which equity has no p'acc, but sometimes it may hnppm that equity and policy run in the same groove, in which the best players will follow. In this county the Radicals arc about three thousand strong, and the Democrats two thousand. Tt. ere fore, by the system of "cumulative voting," the latter are entitled to one county com missioner and two representative.i. Now, if the Radicals nominate an honest ticket?if it starts the dead from the graves to cry but, "well done," by nil means let the Democ rats join in the chorus. This is all they ask. But if the Radicals will not nominate a decent ticket, then let it be known that two thousand Democ rata arc ready to unite with the hon est Republicans who arc unwilling to foster rascality. Considerations of party should always give place to the interests of good government." ? . ??. -. ?.? - - Go for him, Towser. The Constitutionalist and the Chron icle & Sentcriel of Augusta arc nt it agaiu. The latter journal accuses the Constitutionalist of conducting a dog-in-the manger policy in the house of its friends. The Constitution alist throws down the gauntlet to the Chronicle & Senlcnel, and the last named journal lakes it up as follows : "The dog-in-the manger policy of the Constitutionalist has dolie us no barm in the past; we do not think it can do us any in the future. As to M r. James R. Randall's vnporings I about ' bullies" and "chips," we care nothing for them. We treat them with the contempt which they deserve. We have not sought a per sonal issue with him or any one else. We shall certainly not decline one, and if he thinks lo the contrary he may be given ample opportunity to dis cover his mistake." Now if "My Maryland" is really longing for the smell of gun powder, it seems that abundant opportunity to satisfy his ol lac tori es has been offered him by Messrs. Walsh & Wright. Rut the >A cn\i and Courier, smelling the battle afar oil', advises these belligeiehls to adopt this motto : "Punch, brolhci*?, punch with care!" Upon which we would remark, keep cool, Messrs. Editors of the Ncics a:,d Courier; the Gcjrgia duel ists arc not likely to call upon you for a second. And if they do you can decline to act by falling back upon your religio us creed. So don't get unduly excited. - - - mm ? mm" Columbia Election. M r. John Agucw was elected May or of Columbia on the 14th inst, with the following board of Aldermen : P. F. Frazee, C, R. Minort, A. Cooper F. W. Wing, II. JO. Huyne, Win. M. Fine, G. A. Darling, G. Dicrcks, R. D. Seen, Fr.cn Stenhousc, Ii. J. Palmer and L ?->. Brown. Agnew's majority over Captain Stanley was only 23. Our sympathies were with the "Citizens Ticket,'' but if Mj\ Agucw and bis Council men will go to work in the interests of all the people of Columbia we shall not have much to com pi; in of. The citizens who make up our State Capitol have much to rejoice over in the defeat of the captious and ill-tempered Dr. FJnsor. His succes would have I oded i o good lo the taxpayers of Columbia. Connecticut has gone Democratic by over two thousand majority. This is claimed as a sct olf to the New Hampshire election. Mackoy. The Legislature will have a charcc to redeem itself alter tho recces. Resolutions will doubtless |bo intro duced again to inquire into the charges of alleged official misconduct against Judge Mackcy. Let every man who has a spark of h ve for the purity of the Judiciary vote for the investigation. Judge Reed was run down by a committee?and by the side of Mackey he is as white as driven snow?and it is but fair that the Judicial Devil among the Tailors of the Sixth Circuit should bo exam ined also. Let our members do their duty. If they do. not, ihcy shall hear from us. Correct. Otho writing to the AVies aud Courier from here, in relation to the contest between Cain and Duncan, has this to say of our neighbor aud ourselves : "Of our two newspapers, the Nkws and Tim; s has been quite non-committal, while the Free Citizen has espoused tho Duncan side quite warmly." Correct, brother Otho. What is the use to espouse Caiu's side when it sccnis that the people have taken that privilege to themselves? However, if it becomes necessary for this paper to take a stand on one side or the other, we shall not be found timid in declaring ourselves, nor backward in sustaining our side. Judge Carpenter. This distinguished jurist is strong ly spoken of for Governor. We have no particular objection to him, but wouldn't it be safer tokccphiin in the position of Judge for his term out? Sam. Mclt.m is more popular just now with (lie masses of the people in this State than any other white Republi can. Why not trot him out? We'll bet he won't defend a Mackcy nor connive at the escape of a Niles G. Parker. Whittemore. It is said that B. W Iii It; more is laying his plans to go to Congress again. If the people of Raincy's District arc foolish enough to vote for that scamp, Congre3; should nev er admit him. We'll vote for him to go to the Penitentiary but n vt4 a hit to Congress, No, no, "The negro is rather to he pitied J than condemned; all that he docs against the whites being at the insti gation of the scalawag and carpet bagger. Wo have these three?the negro, the carpet-bagger and the scalawag; but the worst of these is the?scalawag. He is the modern Jurfas, in th? presence of whom the negro is an angel."?-Alpha in the News aud Courier. And in the- presence of''Alpha" the scalawag is an angel. Treasurer Gordoza says he will he* able to pay during this month two thirds of* the school money due the various counties under the new ap portionment made by Superintendent Jillson. This is welcomo news to the hundreds of unpaid teachers who throne the land. Judge Cookc is a delegate from Greenville to the State Convention. Send him to Cincinnati, gentlemen? yon couldn't make a butter choice. Governor Chamberlain has been elected a delegate from Hurry county and Judge Carpenter from Edgcrtcid county to the State Convention. Senator Patterson is on fiom Washington t o watcfi the State Con vention. A committee has been appointed to investigate the alleged frauds connect ed with the Mississippi election.

Two sandstone bottles, half filled with wine and spirits, are placed upon the fire un til the liquid boils. The conteutsare then emptied, nud the red hot mouth of the bottle is applied to the bite, and held there until it is pursued with the other bottle. A decoction of rice, in which canthnrides have been boiled lor an hour, and then removed, is also given to the patient, who is required to keep perfectly quiet for eight or ten days. The dispatches relating to the flight of Don Carlos mention the fact that be nppcard to have an ahuudance of money. It is not likely that Don Carlo? viril' suffer from abject poverty, for bis uncle, the ex-Grand Duke of Modcna, who died not long ago left him a. fortune of $0,000,000, which will enable him to keep up a creditable style living in England. The Duke of Modcna was worth $40, 000, 000. Mrs. Pa ran Steens* house, in Fifth avenue. New York, will cost when completed about $2,000,000.

Mr. Paran Stevens, the maker of all this wealth, commenced business as a third-rate tavern keeper in Boston. There is no telling what hotel keepers can do if they do hot pay their taxes in bills of the Bank of the Slate. The editor of'the' Publisher's Weekley has been making quite a thorough comparison ot booksellers' "Order lists," to learn what biographical works are most largely read. The results arc quite unexpected an I cur ious. The biographical works most frequently bought arc Irving'* "Washington," and Forstcr's "Dick ens;" the form ?r was completed nearly twenty years ago, while the latter is practically a new book. Then, far above the works of the most popular modern biographers?above Motley, Carlyle, Part on, Adams, Abbott, Bigelow, and Head ley?stands Bosc; well's "Johnson," and Plutarch's ?Lives Governor Smith, of Georgia.
