All the questions discussed during the extra session of Congress seem to have found their proper political lev el, and will not he disturbed save by pedagogues until the opening of the next campaign by the great political parties, except tho .Silver question which la of so gieat importance as to excite much iutercst among the speakers and writers of the present day. Because of the prominence giv en Lids qucBtiou wo propose to give a statcmcut of the facts of chief inter est involved in it. At the beginning of tlie govern ment our legislators very wisely adopted a metallic standard of values, and silver and gold were used for this purpose, with a dollar as the unit of., value whether gold or silver. A coircct silver dollar contained 412 1-2 grains of that metal and a coriectgold dollar conUaipcd 27 grains <i( gold?the proportion between the two was about fifteen to one. It was afterwards ascertained that by the French, Government, with which we occupied more intimate relations than any other of Europe, the value of silver to gold, was fifteen and a _biuXto>o?e.?Thia proved that-the un coined value of the two,metals in the United States was not the same, that a gold dollar was worth more than a silver dollar and that it was necessa ry to make them equal. In 1831 gold was reduced to 2f>.8 grains which was about sixteen to , one, and a silver dollar was consequently worth more than a gold dollar. This proved the French proportion more nearly cor rect and it was adopted. Ever since 17?2 these metals made the legal money of the United States and the free coinage of hoth was pro vided for by law. Mints were loca ted where citizens possessing either gold or silver in mass could have it coined free. So stood our silver and gold dollar until after the war. In 187C silver was demonetized and the gold dollar remained the unit of value. Its ficc coinage was prohibit ed und it was pronounqed by law no longer a legal-tender. In the mean lime a very important trade sprung up between the United States anil China, and our merchants on the Pa cific coast were forced to buy Spanish ? and Mexican dollars at 8 per cent, to meet the demand of the trade. To remedy this evil, by an act of Con gress, the Secretary of tho Treasury was* ordered to purchase silver in mans and coin a dollar containing 420 grains of Standard silver to be known as tho "trade dollar," and one year afterwards these trade dollars were made a legal tender in sums of 85.00. Jiy the law Lhiity-six million of these dollars weie coined. Two years later their character as legal tender was destroyed, and by law their coinage left to the judgment of the Secretary of the Treasury who forthwith caused it to cense. After the silver mines of Nevada and Colorado bad been discovered and put in operation, the old silver dollar was again remonctized and made a legal tender. The Secretary of the Treasury was ordered to pur chase bullion and to coin a large number of dollars bearing the stand . aid weight of 412 1-2 grains. At the late extra session of Congress it waa ascertained that a ucass of silver weighing only 412 1-2 grains brought in the maikct only 85 cents, therefore to isBtie such a dollar was to issue a fraudulent dollar. To correct this evil a-bill was introduced to equalize the money value of gold and silver and to do so as soon as the European nations which had demonetized silver might rcmonctizc it. The metallic money question, there-1 fore, before the country nt the present! Umo seems to bo Ibis : Whether we shall make tho .money value of silver and gold precisely equal, or adberc to tl^u old standard dollars of 412 1-2 grains to the'doFlar of silver and 25.8 grains to the dollar of geld. The latter has always varied from 1792 to the present, from 2 to 3 per cent. Whether this question is of sulli clcnt moment to become an issuo be tween the contending parties, and to be made so by the National Demo cratic platform is a matter involving grave doubts. If it be not made, there will be no issue to divide the people save the great constitutional questions discussed at the extra ses siou of Congress, and the larger por tion of the Grcenbackcrs will unite with the Democrats and together win an easy victory for an honest govern incut und equal right to be adminis tered by Democratic otlluiajs; on the other hand, if it he made, the majori ty of the Greenbackers will join the Kadicals to defeat the hard money policy. This seems to us to be the proper outlook and it needs but a glance to discover the better policy for the Democracy. ? i ii - The Ohio Contest. The contest between the contend ing pnrties in Ohio is rising in impor tance and interest not only in that Stato and its associates of the West but is assuming a national impor tance attached heretofore to few State elections. In Maine, Blaine is stumping the Stale, and other speak ers, both Democratic and Radical, are add'ng their mile to tho excite ment which had its origin in a split of the Radical party. In Ohio, how ever, the battle to be fought in next October is for our entire people. Gicat political questions are to be determined ; the fundamental princi pic of a fair jury, an honest ballot, and protection from tho oppression of class legislation, make up tho issues involved in this struggle, and to pre serve and perpetuate which the talent of the whole country from both par ties have been called into requisition. The fight therefore is to be hotly con tested ; every national bank at the North and West stands at U12 back of the Republican party, and all the olliclals in the Executive department of the government will lend their aid and intlueuce, knowing that the next Presidential election in 1880 hangs upon this battle to be fought in Ohio iu October .nex,L__. OnJjie part_ofl Jthe Democracy we enter the field with equal determination to succeed?to ' win a position that will enable the party to lead the way next year to a glorious national victory. Tbe icsult of tbis contest doubtless will go far to shape the political plat form for the coming Presidential cam paign which should be done before the individual States do anything. It must be fought on national princi ples not Stale issues ; and our people will do well to address themselvcss and to devote their time to the im provement of their condition and the building up of their fortune. A Monstrous Wrong. We sec by the Ntios and Courier of yesterday's issuo that certain par ties in Charleston, holders of first mortgages on railroad lands in and near Uranehville, have notified land owners of that town that they are about to institute measures to assert and defend their right to auch proper ty. Who is to blame we know not, but there has been a monstrous wrong perpetrated on innocent citi zens by a corporation, some members of which certainly knew of the wrong when it was committed. Surely there must be somo redress in the law? somo way of protecting our honest citizens in the enjoyment of property fur which they paid its full value in money. If corporations have the power to commit such frauds who is safe from their tyranny and aggres sion? The individual members of the company or stockholders ought to bo held responsible for the acts of their agents. Let tboso interested t?Bt the matter. - m ? Hon. Jefferson Davis, Every Southern heart will rejoice to know that this patriot and hero of a lost causo has at last, by the mu nificence of a friend, been put above want and care as to his short future on earth. Mrs. Sarah A. Dorscy, a rich lady of Mississippi, in testimony of her appreciation of his services to the lalo Confederacy which she loved, and as a tributo to his devotion to its cause, bequeathed her entire property consisting of two plantations and a delightful home residence to Jefferson DaviH, ex-President of the Confeder ate States. Mr. Davis }s now in re tirement at this home, engaged in writing a truthful history of the Con federacy at the head of which ho stood, and it is n source of gratifica tion to know that this work can be prosecuted to its completion without four of interruption. Editorial Notes. Notwithstanding the unfavorable aspect of the weather wo started on Saturday rooming in company with out'worthy County Auditor; Col. D. K. Burton, whose kindness furnished tho vehicle, for Cattle Creek Camp Ground. A drive of three hours, mado delightful by promising crops and comfortable homes at convenient intervals along the road,.brought us to the Camp Ground in duo time for the first morning service. Tho farm of George Garvin, a colored man, de serves .special notice in this connec tion, because of the general appear ance of thrift so unusual for farmers of his race. We notice here more than ordinary interest manifested by ihc proprietor in tho appointments of his home, success of his furm and commendable economy in its general management, and the success attend ing his labors should be a source of encouragement to others of bis color, similarly situated. Tho crops, with a few exceptions only, arc good and will doubtless meet the expectations of the owners. We learn, however, that the drought has been disastrous in its effects upon the crops about tho Camp Ground and, indeed, throughout the Branchvillc section, cutting the cotton short lull one-half and corn probably more. The farm ers, however, true to the magnanimi ty of their natures are not discourag ed, but in hope8of a more prosperous future, will enter immediately upon preparations for another year. After seeing our nag properly cared for (and she deserved it,) ourselves refreshed by the generous hospitality of our mutual friend, Mr. A. M. Cox, whose tent wc made our home, and a casual survey of our surroundings with a cheerful greeting here aud there from friends, wo bad almost forgotten, we began to feel at home, to experience that unalloyed pleas ure which springs from the renewal of old associations and to enter upon tho enjoyment of the religious ser. vice's of the occasion. It. has been said that campmcetings, having serv ed the purposes for which they were instituted, should be abandoned and protracted meetings substituted in their place, but tho results at Cattle Creek prove that they, by the proper effort on the part of both preacher and people, may be made effective for good-even in this advanced period of refinement. As centres, from which eradiate wholsomo religious infln enccs, no meetings can equal these, reaching communities often widely separated from each other that could not otherwise be successfully reached. The want of fruit in campmeetings is due rather to . tho sparse population of the section in which, they are lo cated rather than the failure of the peculiar kind of meetings to meet the demauds. They should bo located in neighborhoods thickly populated with live Methodist families,the heads of which arc willing to yield their in dividual uolions and to make the proper sacrifices for the good of their church. We are aware of no peculiar combination of circumstances which made this meeting a successful one, yet twenty-four conversions, a dozen accessions to tho church and a deep, all-pervading religious influence through a large crowd collected from various sections of the county, may bo set down as tho results of Cattle Creek Campmceting. Such results, apart from the social features of the occasion, the communion of thought, and the generouB hospitality which give character to a people abroad, make campmeetings us potent for good as in the days when our pioneer preachers made them subserve so ef fectively the aggressive policy of Methodism. We have seldom had the pleasure of listening to a series of sermons better calculated to accomplish tho purposes intended than those preach ed by the ministers on this occasion. Prof. Duncan beside his effort in be half of Wofford College, was a zeal ous and eloquent worker for the sal vation of souls and doubtless his stir ring sermons bore their full share of the fruit of the meeting. The period of campmeetings is not passed, nor will be, so long as people will assem ble in mass to hear tho gospel. Before closing these notes wo will express our grateful acknowledge ments to our friends for the words of encouragement everywhere given concerning tho Democrat. Wo are determined that the paper shall suc ceed?and succeed upon its merits only; therefore such words ns wo heard spoken daring tho meeting, serve to strengthen as well as en courage us. As the people's organ, wo offer them a newsy, reliable and well printed paper, and, by the help of their continued patronage, wo hope to make it the equal of any country weekly in the State. The Fair. The attention of our farmers and citizens generally is directed to tho communication of Dr. W. F. Barton in another column on this subject. At this season of the year while the. crops arc standing in tho fields, it is an easy matter for the farmer to se lect bis best acre of cotton or corn with a view of sending tho product to our County Fair? 'Wo hope it will bcj done;-' and-our fall exhibition will stand without a parallel in the quan tity and quality of farm produce: This is also the right time for the la dies to begin their needle and rag work, their preserved and canned fruits, and their wines and cordials intended for tho Fair. Garden vege tables and llowera may also receive extra attention, so that the best vari eties of these may be pub on exhibi tion. If the proper interest be mani fested by our people, and especially the farmers and their wives, the County Fair next fall will bo the grandest success hitherto achieved by tho association." The indications so far are satisfactory and the out look promising, notwithstanding the disastrous effects of the late drought upon the crops in many sections of the county. Let this interest bo not only kept alive but increased by the friends of the enterprise, and a most gratifying exhibition will be the result. Ol>it,un.vy.
