His real Amy was to collect political assessment* from the poorly. paid ■openers and packers in the appraiser’s department. The laborers complained greatly of the tyranical manner in which he exacted a part of their monthly stipend, but as Harney was looked upon as Darling's second self, they did not dare to grumble in ills presence. These intimate relations continued through Darling’s appraiser*}}ip. These explanations are given for Harney s.course by those who know the parties. One is that the committee now cegscod investigating the custom house and the appraiser’s department are on tho eve of grand developments. avid that Harney desired to dull the force of the blow bv accusing a prominent Democrat of fraud. The ot her is, that Harney feels that Darling’s influence can no longer sustain him, and he desires to win the gratitude of his partisans, die Radicals, by doinir them a signal service.’ v A MISCIilEF-^^„„. , Great complaint Is 1110^ ^irorthy citizens in the lower part of die county, OU 'the line of the Port $oyal Bit broad and eteeiMie^ thafctJlostor Holbuidi* p goingaround all over tho country inciting and stirring up tremble between tha whites and negroes, I ■ As Holland is a Trial Justice his opportunities for making mischief are manifold.

Governor Chamberlain, ha Chief Magistrate of the State, has issued a proclamation, calling upon all the officers and agents of the law to bring to just account those who have dared to usurp the awful prerogative with which the lawfully constituted representatives of public justice are alone invested. Al the flame tittie, in a letter to Judge Carpenter, the Governor suggests that meas ires be adopted to bring to justice the two women, Matilda Holloway and Betty Perrin, who are still at large, and were charged by the Coroner** jury as being accessories to the murder of the Harmons.

Evening Best, Iud.3 The recently developed opposition to Governor Tilden in his own party in this State is curiously significant of certain things whioh are worthy> of earaftll* study, and especially worthy of consideration by honest and sincere Democrats outside of New York’ ** There are two “wings,”, sq' to speak, in that party, and Governor ^Tilden represents one of them, while1 the' persons who opposes him constitute Ma other, It is natural enough that Httflptol Ring and its followers, Tam many ®! Its adherents, and time aret of Delancrats who are commonly callat Bourbons, should labor to defeat the ^^nafjjon for higii office of the man wiy* represents everything that they oppose, JnrqJ opposes everything that tbeyreprosoet, but it will be a discouraging thin**’ to every person who hope* for good astite hands of the Democratic party, and every man in that party who sincerely seeks to make it the instrument of govermentai purification and a return to sound principles and honest methods, if such opposition is permitted to prevail in its councils. Governor Tilden represents all that there is in the Democratic party which the public are at all disposed to trust; his opponents represent that w’hich the people just now most earnestly dread, and the development of the of the opposition in these circumstances affords that party a precious opportunity to strengthen itself and win something of that popular confidence which it badly needs by placing itself fairly upon the side of the right. It Xviii not be easy to close the breach The Bates & Lock Advertising Job.—Gov. Tilden declares that he h *»s no hand in the Bates & Lock advertising D job We never supposed for a moment that he had anything to do with it. It was a device of the enemy, gotten up by Petroleum ><!

A knowledge, I have wcmclnded lo give thaw SOHM account* ' of tho Tillage of Lindley, 8. 0., which, within the past few years, has sprung into existence where a ffew year* £go wa* only an un-improved forestand unreclaimed swamp, through which flowed tike sluggish wa— ters of Great Horse Creek. To-day it attracts the attention, of the tourist Or stranger, as he passes on the South Carolina ar Charlotte, Columbia A Augusta Railroad. A beauti ta1 lake first appears covering in extent seven or eight hundred acres of what formerly wa* a worthless swamp then suddenly a village of gothic houses comes into view, whioh, from their locality: on fining ground, presents pleasing prospect-— laid out,*® it ie regularly, with streets adorned with shade trees,iwhich in a few years will afford Ample shade to the^ town.    ; In piroyimity bo the wajcr, is the cotkia^iilll of the- Langley Manufacturing Company, the symmetrical proportions of which—ample yard room and general surroundings—often calls from the northern traveler remarks of surprise, that in South (’arollna so much of thrift and enterprise is displayed.— The first projectors of this manufacturing enterprise were men from Charleston, S.O., whose .zeal for the business far surpassed their knowledge of it. They commenced their organization in 1865, and a Aer an expenditure of nearly half a million, they failed for want v»f funds to carry on the work—not having started-or put in position a single loom. Having borrowed largely from Messrs Win, 0. Langley & Co., of New York. and mortgaging the property to secure them, it eventually foil into their hands. this State, for the reason that it is never cA<y to reconcile an honest desire to do right with a set purpose to do wrong; and it will be difficult to arrange a compromise which shall not seem to be a mere bargain. Governor Tilden has fought manfully for hard money and hones* government. It is impossible to mistake his altitude on these questions ; and. if at this juncture the party yields to t he d ctnandsof the men in New York who oppose him, it can scarcely hope to escape the reputation of ’-aving rejected those principles and written hostility to them upon its banners, whatever clever devices it may hit upon for concealing tho fact under formal declarations of doctrine. His name has bein put forward too far to be withdrawn now without a practical declaration of hostility to the principles which his name has come to represent. The country is asking the question, “Can wo trust the Democratic party ?” and it will take Its answer, very probable, A resident of Stamford, Conn., is in possession of the original manuscript of the general orders issued by Col.

Ga,, and interested several of the prominent citizen * of that city in the enterprise of organizing a company to iompieta the works and start manufacturing, whioh plans were subsequently carried out, and in March. 1871, the first cotton goods were turned out. Although the enterprise has been a success to the present company, they have been unfortunate. Hardly four month h oi elapsed after starting manufacturing, before a terrific gale unroofed the extensive skylight on the factory building, and soon after a portion of their mill dam was washed away, which stopped their works for several weeks, and incurred heavy expenditures in repairing the damage.

This fire was soon subdued, and the loss was compari-tively arnatto I he loss by tho first fire, the total loss. o£ the two fires amounted to 618,909.48,1 Which was wholly"' borne by the Langley Manufacturing Company, as they carried no insurance at that time upon the warehouse. The capital stock of the Langley Mannfac- 5^* taring Company is four hundred thousand dollars, and they own hi this neiglw bor hood over 4,500 acres of land, neatly covered with wood, and their machinery. together with the cotton mill, buildings, o grist mill and village of over one hundred houses, which afford homes to a population of over eight hundred inhabitants. The product of cheir manufacturing for the year ending January 1st. 1876, was 5,723,671 yards of tshcefcifig, shirting and drills, weighing 1,889,127 pounds, at a cost of 8433,764 27.
