Our thanks are due Mr. J. C.
Peers for a package of very fino

There was a pretty general row in
the street between Dr. Wannamak

day night last. Several heads were
broken, considerable blood spilt, a
policeman handled pretty roughly, a

a trial and mistrial, a severe repri
mand or reproof and an adjournment.
The very best quality of family
groceries and provisions can be
bought at the well known store
of Mr. Charles Bull, on Russell street
near the Railroad. He receives bis
goods weekly and Is therefore able to
sell them fresh and at Uie lowost

goods and prices, you will be pleased
and go again.
People will not behave themselves,
and in the best of communities there
are law-breakers which necessitates
tha!: very worthy class of business
men known as lawyers. If our read

Mr. Samuel Dibble or Knowlton &

Rkv. T. S. Hallman, of Middle St.

remarkably low prices.

Quite a fashionable wedding took
place at Lewisville on the 12th in
stant. The contracting parlies were
Mr. S. Llocsser, of Louisville, N. C,
and Miss Fannie Redlick, niece of
Capt. L. Rich, of Lewisville, S. C.
The ceremony was performed by Rev.
Henry Steele, of Columbia, S. C, in
the Masonic Hall, and the banquet,
which was a superb affair, was serv
ed up at the residence of Capt. Rich.
I We extend our congratulations to the
I happy couple.
Ouit thanks are due the Rev. S. T.
Hallman for "A Form of Service for
Opening and Closing Sunday Schools,
suited to all Kvangelicnl Churches."
Tho pamphlet containing this form of
service is well gotten up, and the
service itself is an admirable produc
tion and will meet a demand long
felt in our churches. The opening
service contains but a few ideas, inti
mately connected and, adapted to the
child's understanding. The author,
Rev. S. T. Hallman, belongs to our
county and deserves not on.ly credit
for his work, but the. thanks of the
church. We hope the service will bo
adopted wherever it may bo. needed.

The noise .at J4*o negro engine j
house on Tuesday night last was be
yond all endurance. The whole
neighborhood was disturbed until 2
o'clock Wednesday morning by sav
age yells and dancing. We learn
that Alderman J. S, Albergotti has
informed the Board of Fireraasters
that if this nuisance is not abated the
charter would he withdrawn by the
City Council. This is as it should
be, and we hope it is but the begin
ning of the end of a terrible outrage
upon a pcacoable community.
Messrs. J. C. Pike, C. I). Kortjohn
and P. W. Hull left our town on
Tuesday last for New York, where
they propose to lay in larger stocks
than ever of general merchandize for
the fall and winter trade. We also
learn that Messrs. T. & II. Kohn will
leave on the 20th or 22nd for the
same purpose. We hope our enterpris
ing merchants will meet with every
success, and the trade of the approach
ing business season will be one of un
paralellcd success both for the mer
chants and farmers of our county.
We learn that there is a party of
gentleman, very worthy farmers of
St. Matthews, who have gone on a
visit to Charleston County with the
intention of purchasing lands on the
Northeastern Railroad. We regret
this step, because we need all the
good and industrious white citizens
we can get to develop the resources
of every section of our county ; and
wc fear they will regret it, because
they leave a home they know and
where they have done well, for a home
they know not of. It is always the
better part of wisdom to let "well
enough" alone.
We arc in receipt of a very neat
pamphlet containing the premium
lists, &c? of the Sixth Annual Exhi
bition of the Orangeburg Agricultur
al and Mechanical Association for
1870, which will commence on Wed
nesday, October 29, and close Fri
day, October, 31, 1870. These pam
phlets should be in the hands of every
farmer, gartlucr and mechanic in the
county in order that tho chorda put
forth by the Directors might be
crowned with abundant success. We
hope the patronage will be general
and the exhibition accomplish great
good both for the Association and
the public at largo.
We regret exceedingly to hear of
the death of Rev. Peter A. Buyck
of the Baptist Church, which occur
red in St. Matthews last week. Thus
another of the links that held the
present generation in close contact
witli the virtues of tli3 last, bus dis
appeared, and in this, as in the death
of every good man, wc are the sad
losers. Few men fill up the entire
period of their lives with more of
good works for their fellows than
Mr. Buyck, and the example of few
men shall bo regretted more deeply
than his. Hundreds of friends will
receive the announcement of his
death with sadness.
The circulation of the Democrat
has now reached a very satisfactory
number and found its way into every
section of our county. From the date
of its first issue to the present, every
week has made new accessions to our
list, and we expect to receive a large
number during this fall and winter.
We, therefore, offer L\ie columns of
the Democuat to the enterprising
merchants of Orsngeburg County,
with tiie assurance that liberal adver
tising with us wiii prove a profitable
business. Our splendid circulation
will carry their wares into the homes
of a large majority of the buyers of
our county.
The public will remember that the
exercises of Sheridan's School will
open at his rooms in the Fair Bui hi
ng on the first Monday in September
next, which will be the first day of
the month. The >? Principal, by cm
ploying a full corps of teachers, will
make an effort to meet every demand
of the public. Each pupil, however
small will receive a full share of at
tention. Ample time will be allowed
for instruction in every branch. The
blackboard, as heretofore, will be
used for illustrating and explaining
the principles of the languages and
sciences. Indeed, every appliance,
within the reach of tho Principal, will
be employed to make the acquirement
of knowlcdgo easy, interesting and
successful. Qerman is added to the
list of languages taught, see adver
tisement. A liberal share of public
patronage is solicited.
Bhanchviluk, Aug. 12th, 187}).
Editor Orangebxung Democrat:
Regarding your paper as the organ
proper, of the Democratic parly, I
beg for a ?mall Bpacc in its columns,
especiuMy as the subject which I pro
pose to discuss is one in which the
editor is deeply interested. To begin :
No one would imagine that there
could be found one man in Orange
burg County who would place himsolt
in opposition to a system which has
received the sanction of our best
minds. I have reference to our Free
School system. Ignorance has been
such a banc in the past that it was
thought all would be in favor of edu
cating the masses.
Who would daro place himself in
opposition to the plans of our accom
pjj*i?'jd Superintendent and his able
assistants? Who would try to stille
learning, and keep in ignorance the
young minds of our land, by making
it prnclioable for them to get
a house in which to learn their A, B,
C'8? Alas I for Branchville, it was
lefo for her to answer this question.
Recently it was ascertained that there
was a small amount of money in Hie
treasury coming to this township for
free-school purposes. Being without
a school house, a number of our best
citizens sought to procure a building
in which to put a teacher. Where
can we get it? the answer came quick
ly, the "Town Hall," of course, it is
idle, besides it is public property.
But to what better or noblor use
could it be put, than lo-dcvole it to
the instruction of the youug? Appli
cation was made to the honorable
Town Council lor the use of the build
ing ; with one exception the reply was,
"You can have It for three dollars
per month." Now the money com
ing to this township, or this school in
particular, is too small an. amount to
pay* teacher and rent both, so we are
forced to bo without a school, simply
because, by accident, men governed
by prejudice, have under their control
property which belongs to the public.
But this is not all, about this time ap
plication was also made for this hall
for "terpsichorean" purposes. The
Councilmen rented it at. onco to the
applicants, at two dollars per month,
and daily and nightly, note*, can be
iieard the violin and the stentorian
voice of a burly darkey?yclept
dancing master?ringing through tho
circumnmbiant air.
Instead of many budding minds,
catching objects yet p?w to them, in
this public edifice-, *he&..is a strange
negro leaching our so/iiie young men
how to dance, and leaching tbera the
graces of the gentleman. Shade of
Chesterfield, of Martin and all the
couitly knights of politeness gone
before, whither ! Oh ! whither are we
drifting 1
We arc without a free-school, Mr.
Editor, and as our people are anxious
to get one, 1 have been approached
to invoke your advice in the matter.
Can you make any suggestions?
It is the duty of the Trustess to
provide a school room when they
have funds in hands to do so.?Eoi
Ton Democrat.
Notes from Fori Motte.
Fout Motte, August 10, 1S79.
Editor Orangeburg Democrat;
Thinking you would like to hear
from this section once iu a while, I
have concluded to give you a few
"jottings." Our crop prospect is
very poor. Corn, that staff bo many
lean upon, is almost a total failure.
The wheat yield was very meagre.
There was a splendid crop of oats
harvested which will help tha farmers
a great deal, and remind them that
they must seed in a good acreage
again to help out the scanty corn crib
next senson. The cottou crop is fair,
compared with other seasons. There
will be two-thirds of a o op made.
These are, I think, tho finest cotton
lands in the State without doubt.
We havo some extensive planters too,
among them I will mention Mr. Fc
tcrkin, who owns the McCord planta
tion, known ajg ^Lang Syne." He
plants about three hundred acres in
cotton, corn, oats, &c, in proportion.
Estate of De Yeaux. (True Blue,) un
[der the supervision of Mr. Wienges,
ships several hundred bales of cotton.
Maj. W. C. Hano, J. K. Haue, Col.
Goodwyn, the Messrs. Bryan, ClarToy,
Trezevant and others who are practi
cal farmers.
Mr. J. C. Harmon has recently
purchased the Belleville farm and is
putting extensive improvements there
on, and will soon bo one of our most
enterprising farmers, n
Qf our little Fort I can't say much,
We are still under Radical rule-. Our
Intendant, a ginger-bread darkey,
claims to be a minister of tho Gospel,
professor and teacher, whoso igno
rance astonishes the natives who
placed him in bis high office. The
council wrangle and. twist each other
until the whole incorporation has the
??pr of "ole^cheese. Elect and resign
seen) to bo the order of the day here.
By the time this sees the light of day
in your columns this town will have
spent $24 for elections since the Olli
day of May. This way not seem ex
travagant until you learn the popula
tion of our "city," which stated in
round numbers reaches the enormous
sum of twenty inhabitants, mostly
white and black. But for all tins our <
metropolis improves. Mr. D. J.Car
roll, who lost his fine mill, gin, &c,
last winter by fire, nothing daunted,
has just completed a finer one, and is
awaiting the arrival of the fleecy sta
ple to commence the music. Other
improvements, such as building stores,
dwellings, &c, have gone on aud upon
the whole,the place does well enough.
We have about eigltteen Republicans
to convert to* the folds of the Democ
racy, then we will have a good gov
I see in.your issue of a few weeks
back a notice of the Dixie Combina
tion Hoe, Rake, cfcc, invented by our
worthy Section-iuastei, Mr. Ilowell.
It is without doubt one of the most
complete arrangement that could be
thought of and surpassess auy of the
late inventions I have seen. A child
can arrange it, and from the way the
inventor is taking orders for them we
premise it will pay him well. I un
derstand that he has orders for about
live hundred sets, and applications
for the rights of several counties.
He should let the people know of its
merits through your columns.
Wo are now having good Reasons,
but the weather is very cool for Au
gust. Wishing the Democrat a glo
rious future, I am yours, &c,
