FI?DAY, JANUAKY ?0, 1880. ~ Selecting Public .Servant*. Yt"e heartily endorse the sentiment of the Palmetto Yeoman that in se lecting our public officials it is a mis take always to take up the Generals and Colom Is in preference to the private soldiers who fought in th-? ranks. The Confederate army was different from most of the armies of the world. Intelligence and worth hero were not measured by rank. Men enlisted not for mercenary purposes, but in defence of all they held dear. There were just as good and able men in the ditches or keeping sentinel on the picket post as in the military councils, lnllueuce, fortuitous circumstance* and accident often put the stripes on the arms. Having gone through the war ourselves we know whereof we speak. We are not opposed to rewarding men who have attained oflico or rank from meritorious services, but wo l.l:_ .11? ? - i <?* i.:..l. novel 'Mnnnj regaij oiueo or myo position as a certain badge of worth. In selecting a public servant wc want the most worthy, no matter whether he "ere s sword or carried ? musket. Unfortunate. The difference between Gen. Gury and Senator Hampton we regard as exceedingly unfortunate for the Democratic party and the State, and -y decidedly injurious to the reputation ** of both tho distinguished [jartici pants. 'Ihe agitatiou of the question just now has the appearance of political maneuvering. It is kuowu that Gen. Gary is spoken of by some of the papers lor Governor, and that Senator Hampton and many prominent papers are op posed to him. The people are divided in opinion as the merits of the controversy, and the more that is written on each side the more probably will the truth be enveloped in mystery. One thing is very certain, the State and the Democratic party is more important than either Senator Hamp ton or Gen. Gary, and we would thank them both if they would keep their personal dilliculties to them selves, and cease burdening the pub lic with thorn. Charleston, We have been noticing with no small degree of interest tin figh o' the Railroad kings, mill it i.- a source of much comfort and gratification to know that the latest combinations are tending to tho prosperity of the old "city by the sea." The prosperity of Charleston is the prosperity of the State. Every citizen of the State feels an interest in her welfare, and many of us are bound to her by stronger ties than those of material considerations. Her sons are scattered everywhere, and howover s-parated, their hearts throb for their venerable mother. Her grand old history is the pride of every South Carolinian whose purest desire is that its future pages should be as bright a-; its past has been honorable. We trust the signs of the times are correctly interpret ed, and that the wheel of fortune has truly turned in favor of this good ol d city. The Kxtrn NchhIoii. Tho Supremo Court has reached a decision on the supply act. A ma jority of the Court reached the con clusion that the error ol substituting 4} for 4) mills is fatal to the vali lity of that section; and all the judges agreed that, the section which makes provision for thatCharlesion military is without force of law. hi accord ance with this decision Governor ?Simpson will issue his proclamation, and tho General Assembly will con vene in extra session on the 10th of next mouth. Tbc Maine mittle. ?ii:,- Supreme Court of Maine haa uguin decided squarely in favor ?f its own parly, th^ Reno, licaus. The Fuaionists are therefore discouraged, und are gradually yielding. The end of tho dunl government is near at bund. Tlic Hampton (inry Embro gllo. Tho publication in the Abbeville Medium of an interview of a corres pondent of that paper with Gen. Gary on January 3rd, and a letter in the Nri/ s and Courier on Wednesday in answer to it from Col. J. C. Hask ell, a Bon-in-law of Sonator Hampton, lias reopened this unfortunate etn broglio. In order that ihn public may form a correct judgment as to the que.s lion at issue, wo will endeavor con cisely, but fairly, to give each si le of thcttory. The foilow is OKN. OARY'h SIDE. In answer to the persistent entrea ties of his interviewer who sought him out in his home in Edgefiehl, the "Bald Eagle" speaks Substantially as follows : 1. That many of the papers of the United States had charged that Til den and Hendricks had been sold out b) Southern leaders, for the sake of South Carolina, Louisiana and Flori da. 2. That Hampton submitted to him the proposition to withdraw these eleett r8 at the mass meeting iu Abbe ville which he, Gary, ignored. 4. That this proposition was ilia? cussed at a meeting held for the put pose, at Mrs. Norwoods' residence, at which meeting Hampton, Toombs, McGowan, Cothran and others w ere present That McGowan win not in harmony with the rest. That these facts arc corroborated by the state ment of McGowan a:ul the admission of Hampton himself. ?. That further the facts are cor roboratcd by the appearance of Judge Mackay ami Judge Cooke immedi ately after this secret meeting at Mrs. Norwoods', on the same platform with the Dcmdcrnts, advocating tho* elec* tion of Hayes and Wheeler, which, if Hampton was true to Tilden, he would never have permitied; nor would he have written his letter to Manton Marble, asking him to cut loose from the Democratic party. G. That thero is the folio wing ad ditional proof of the charge: Hamp ton's sending Judge Mackay to seo Hayes at Columbus Ohio, which Mackay avowed time and again to be true; Hampton's advocacy of the Hayes' Southern policy and travell ing all around the Northwest and South with him; ami last Hampton's advice to Col. Win. Wallace and Col. Harrington, two ol the Tilden elec tors, not to cast the vole of tii ? State fir Tilden and Hendricks. IIAMI'TON'h SIDK. Col. Haski li in his letter not only flatly denies every one of the above chargcH, but oill-rs to prove by Gary's own wi ne.-ses thai they are :?? ? thill instead ot Hampton proposing to declare the 11 ayes electors elec od Gen. Gary urged the a loptioa >; mis course after Hampton had indignant ly refused this proposition of Dennis and Settle, tho Grunt emissaries (JoI. Haskell goes further and oilers to prove the following facts against Gea. Gary : 1. That he used his best efforts to get the Taxpayers Convention to en dorse the bonded debt of the Stale, both honest and fraudulent. 2. That he received a fee for ad vocating before the same. Convention the, claims ot the Blue Ridge Rail road, although he refused to redeem his pledge. !>. That he was the constant de fender of McDeWitt, the liuli al Treasurer ol Edgelioltl. 4. That because Gun Butler had btal-ii him for U.S. Senator, ho ad vocated the removal ol Butler an 1 the putting ol Whiliemore in his piaco. ? . i, . . . in m A gala time may be expected in Charleston next week.

Editor Orttngebwa Times: On Saturday night last at the Mil house pi ice a sf.rious and fatal row occurred, in which a number of tur pentine and farm hands were engag ed. It seems l hat on that uig 111 a party was given at the above placo by some colored folks, and it was that which drew ihe crowd together. And while playing ?hat is known in coun try parlance as "steal partners," a dusky Lothario snatched an ebony damsel from a laborer on Kxom's turpentine farm, at which the latter became enraged, and drawing bis knife said, "You d?n a?o? b?, you stole my partner," and went at once to cutting his supposed rival. As soon, however, as the colored man thus endangered realized his sittta- j lion, lie adopted Shakespeaie'. coup let which rum , "ll>- i:: I figlit.-i .iii.I rum :iwa\ M ili live i'? light another day but the hope lu re held out was not realized in this instance. Death fol lowed close thu first stab given. As the wounded man was climbing a fence about twenty or thirty yards from the house in which the frolic took place, with the hope of making good his escape, he was hit in th c back of the head with two pistol balls, producing almost immediate death. It seetus as> he left the house ten or twelve turpentine hands pur sued him, with what purpose the ae qual proved. But the Bhooting of the man to death was not all. After life was extinct, the infuriated mob, I understand, fired ten or twelve balls into his dead body. Six of the guilty culprits have been a:rested, and while I write this all aie uudergi iug an examination before Trial Justice lOlmoy. The well dis posed colored people of the community arc \ery iudgnuut at the outrage, and a number of them were heard to eay on Monday, that if one or two decent while men would lead them, they would organize and take auitt mry vengeance upou the perpetra tors of this most cold blooded and unjustifiable murder. The farmers are glutting their gijounds ip mill i I'UiltjJIllljL 'l' crop; aud to judge from the start already made, ihey intend that i8S0 shall be a year of abundant harvest. Wild cats aud foxes have but little t.me to rest in this community now. I have been on teveral interesting aud exciting hunts recently with Messrs. Joe Kennerly, W G. Jackson J. \V. Gibson, J. S. Livingston, J. F. lion nctt and others, each of which result ed in the catching or killing of a fox or cat. 'I hero are some splendid hounds up here, nnd it is indeed fine sport to hear the cry of three or more packs behind a cat of a cold crispy morniug. We are having plenty of rain and cold just now, aud the people arc felicitating on pudding and ?ansage. Moli e A NUN. -. - . <?? i ? Forked Flashes.

A great many planters who butchered before the warm spell .set in have lost theii meat. This is to be regretted as every pound of bacon saved is eight cents in the pockets of the consum ers. In this County the consumers of bacon is named Ley ion. Lrt the Legislature piss the fence law and the demand will be less; or if the Legislature will not pass such a law outright, let il enact a law that will leave the test in the hands of the land owuera. There is a great cry for farm laborers. The rise in the price of cotton accounts in a groat measure tin- the increased demand, fhere has been no exodus, and yet farmers liml great difficulty in getting bauds. The deficiency in the supply seems to be greater, and tho demand larger than for seveial years. The system of renting lands ha.s destroyed the availability ol a great portion of the labor, while the young men who are marrying and settling to themselves every year increase the demand. Wages are twenty per cent, higher than last year. Mules and horses are also in great demand, and the West is reaping a good harvest in ihe sale of stock in this and (ho adjoining County of Barnwell. Every man who made one blade of grass grow last year wants to make two blades grow this year whero one grew before. The littlo advance in the price of cotton has turned tho planters topsy-turvy. A large number of mules and horses have been sold on time, und a decline to eight cents per poun I for cotton noxt season will leave many in tho lurch. The corn to lecd this stock with will also have to be imported. Some farmers are buying corn al ready. Mules, corn, bacon, and Hour on credit, with a prospective high price for cotton is tho way the aver age South Carolina farmer gets rich. In France such riches arc called Chateaux en Etpayne. Every now and Iben a case of hydrophobia breaks out in the neigh borhood. Not long since a rabid cur put in an appearance, bit several other curs, as many hogs an I cattle, aud after a chase of three or lour miles by several inun was killed.

We guess not, as dugs arc more valu able in the estimation of the average South Carolina legislator than sheep. To talk of sheep husbandry where there arc so many thousands of half perished canines is to offer a premium on?on ? I know no: what, Harrier, cur, or terrirr. I know they are? What they arc not ? I)oy-< of good behavior. This is my first attempt at poetry since that girl kicked it all out of me ?>e vein] ytnts ago, ami if you will for give me this time. I will not make another soou. It required a groat deal of thought to get that off, and while you may not he ab e to appre i ciatc the poetry contained in those ; lines, if you but knew the time spent I in their production, you would cer tainly .sympathize with the effort. My own private opinion is that a few lib cats would pay belter than cither dogs or sheep. l'AYSAff. ? It seems as if the spirit of enter prise is taking hold everywhere in the State. Greenville has her facto lies. Columbia has her canal. Char leston is indulging in visions of rail road connection, ami the Neck Canal seems to be a certainty. But what is Orungeburg doing. Is she going to lag behind in ihc race? We hope not. Everything is encouraging to our town. All that is needed is en terprise. We hope to see this latent spilit aroused in our people and an effort made to develop our resources. We need factories, and with them immigration and general progress may be expected.
