A Happy New Year. We send our greetings to (lie many readers ol tbe Tjmks in this first issue of 1880, and wish one und all "a happy New Year." It is well at the end of tho old year to take our reckoning for the past, and in the beginning of the now tore-dedicate out selves to the duties of life, and to resolve, with help from above, that we will become better men and women. If, in reviewing the past, we are not satisfied with our progress, it is useless to despond. True worth dees not consist in never falling, but in rising every time we fall. Adversity is good for us. It makes men and v.< men of us. The man whose life has been a never on 1 ing stream of prosperity, is never ??.vorth anything. As the furuauc in rilics the gold, so adversity strength ens and exalts human character, lie who has felt the arrows of outrageous fortune, and who makes his br ad by hi-) brawny arm, is the true man, and not the child of fortune, reposing in his purple elegance and consuming what others have made for him. If in our journey we sometimes flip backward, we must press forward the harder. Hut it is not. our material progress that should engage our best resolutions. It is our advancement in those things that make us hotter men and better citizens. We must endeav r morj to relieve the wants of the poor, and to soften the pillow of.the afHietod; to exercise a moic exalted spirit of charity and tub ration toward those ?who differ with us; to forgive those who injure us. and to feel a meatex sense of our humility. If at the end of tho yea r we can feel that we have advanced in such things, it will indeed prove to us "a happy New Year." An Outrageous Shame. 'Ihe report of Col. Lipscomb, Su perintendent of the Penitentiary, re veals a nio.-t horrible state of things in relation to the convicts hired to the Greenwood it Augusta Railroad Company last August., Hearing of their ill treatment, Col. Lipscomb und Dr. Trezcvant both went to the spot to inspect for themselves, and returned fully corroborating the truth of the rumors. The pens of the con victs were oll? nsively unclean, and there was no comfort whatever for the inmates. The pick were r.oi attended , and general sii.Hering prevailed to B?ch an extent that out of 2S? con victs assigned to this road, 114 died. Puch is the reputed cruelty of one Capt. Cahill that there arc grounds for his indictment for manslaughter or murder. The good name of the State de mauds not only a most searching investigation, hut a just and decided punishment of the heart less perpe trators of such crimes. Let no such acts be tolerated under the eye of t!;e State. Why These Immunities? The Committee on frauds have made their report, by which it will I? ? seen that a long list of Radical light-, including ex Governors, ex Scnatois and ex Representatives, who pi tin dcrcd the State during the fat dais of l'adicaUsin, 1 ave been graute I im muni.its from their crini s.

A bridge over lliu Tayllivcriu Scotland fill in on Monday with a train carrying ."00 people, all of w ho n perished, without a single survivor to tell the story. A fire broke out in Hosten on Sun day, destroying property to the amount of a million of dollars. Orangeburg. A very lull und cheeringstatement of tlie material prospects of Orange burg for 1880 appears in the NVmm inn! Courier irom the pen of "QueL tpiefois," the regular correspondent ol that paper at this place, from which we clip tho following ih encouraging Now Years rending : "In 1870 the change for tho better came. Taxes were reduced, lawless ness suppressed, peace was restored. In 1S77 the prospects were better; larger crops were planted and har vested. Eighteen hundred and seventy-eight, though a year off! nail cial ruin at the North, found our far niers weathering tho s'.orin, Tho [last year, in its good crops, better prices, and less outlay for phosphates ami provisions, h is set them, as a general thing, on firm grout) I. I in i y safely say that the farmers of Or ?nge burg nie out of the woods. .-V strong disposition is manifested to establish and en courage home industries, an I, under the wise influence of their ?range ami agricultural associations, lliey will nurse their savings for in I vestments. The colored people are in many cases making money or a l (ling to their farms. In this small tew u I know of thirty or more who own snug farms and are doing well. ! In a word, there ia a vast change for the hotter. Harmony exists; credit j b easier; property has enhanced; i:n migrants are delighted, and the dark Jay of depression is exchange I for a bright greeting of 1880, when a stronger pull will be made to add to the material wealth of our growing t'ounty. Cscsar's March. Ex-President Grant passed through Columbia yesterday on a special train I for Florida. The Nn? ami (Courier's I correspondent says : He was met at (lie depot by the Mayor o.' the city, a majority of the City Council, three j Northern and two .Southern ladies, j Collector Brayton, Cob Tom Sulli j van, a mail agent on tbe Greenville it Columbia Railroad, who served under Gr. nt during the war, and Mnj. Harry Noah, a revenue ollicer. A crowd of negroes and a few young white nun were at tbe depot, at liacted by curiosity more than any thing else. Mayor Stanley and Judges Willard and Mackey met the Dictator at the ! cars, and invited him to a collation prepared for him at one of t he hotels I but Ciesnr stammered out, "No, 1 think not. 1 .shall have lo go on." After awhile the whistle blew, and j the General was seen in the distuitce waving his hat to the curious and mongiol crowd of =ight seers. The action oj the Mayor iu ten deling lo Giant (he hospitalities ol I he town is generally disapproved. The Revolution i t Miin.i.
