A Misapprehension.?We understand
that it has been stated that the
Town Council purpose to levy a special

tax upon every uaie 01 cuuuu uruugui

altogether a mistake. The Town Council
has recently appointed a cott.onw
gher, but we understand that there
will be no increase in the price heretofore
charged for weighing cotton. Indeed,
it will probably be smaller than
ever before. The report is calculated
to do harm, and we hope it will have
no further currency. Winnsboro expects
to be as good a cotton market as
ever before?indeed, her merchants
and cotton-buyers are always taking
measures to that end.
The Nominee.?The Union correspondent
of the News and Courier
says of Mr. Perry's nomination for
We put our best foot foremost in the
race Congressional and did our level

have no malice, however, and have no
trace of the sorehead. Content to believe
that we had the best man in the
field, we can abide our time. Meanwhile
Mr. Perry neefl fear no lukewarmness
here, bnt he may rest assurred
that his own county will not
sjive him a heartier support than he
will find in old Union.
While a writer from Spartanburg to
the same excellent journal says:
The nomination of Mr. Perry for
Congressman in this district will not
create much enthusiasm. Very few of
our citizens have seen him, but they
will vote for him all the same.

5totes about the Normal Instlfute-O r
Matters of Interest.
Messrs. Editors: Having just returned
from Spartanburg, where I had
been attending the Jsorraal Institute,
and not having seen anything in your
paper recently, either from that point
or "Bear Eivep," I have concluded to
give yon a few dots.
I went np to Spartanburg some ten
days since and found the Institute
"booming," under the able management
"of Dr. Joynes as principal, assisted
by his earnest and able co-laborers
composing the faculty. The Normal
of 1884 has been a most decided j
success. The faculty all unite, iu say- |
ing that the teachers in attendance this
year have been more earnest and enthusiastic,
and have been more constant
in attendance and devoted to the
worK man ever oeiore. vv jinouc
meaning to boast and excluding "ye
scribe," I think Fairfield may well be
proud of her delegation of teachers.
Though few in number, they were
able in attainments, zealous in spirit,
and above all proud of and devoted
to their profusion. I heartily wish
there were more such in our grand old
county and State, and would like to
say to all my fellow pedagogues in
Fairfield that, attending these Normal
Institutes will go far towards making
them just such teachers as those described.
Certainly they cannot reach
any high standard without the aid of
Institutes and Associations. So if we
do -not' wish to be ruled out of the
higher ranks of our profession, and
consequently from the higher salaried
positions, we will be compelled to
avail ourselves of every means?institutes,
associations, educational periodicals,
etc.?to advance and go upward
in our profession.
Before leaving the subject, I hope I
may be pardoned for my presumption
in offering jnst one adverse criticism,
as my appreciation of all ihe Institute's
many excellencies is so very high.
My "criticism is this: Many,"almost
all, of the professors - who lectured
there seemed to think it their province
to store the miuds of the teachers
forming: their classes with the facts
aud truths of the higher departments
of their respective studies rather than
with the best methods of teaching:
them, especially in the lower aud primary
departments. Should not a professor
in a Normal Institute presume
on his class's knowledge of the study
under consideration, and only refer to
facts as they are needed in illustration
of the best method of teaching such
branch? Who differs and who agrees
with me? I could easily say more of
the Normal?especially its social features
and convivialities, and fine lectures
at night from eminent educators
?but will desist lest I wean* you and
The Congressional Convention last
week added greatly to the interest and
excitement of the otherwise quiet
times. The candidates were numer
ous and strong and their friends tievoted,
enthusiastic and confident, but
as victory could only come to one the
others were doomed to disappointment.
and the greatest pity of all was
that our honored and promising candidate,
Col. H. A. Gaillard, was
among the defeated ones. He was
evidently the favorite of the Convention
by long odds (with possibly the
exceptioi/of Col. Munro, of Union,),
and one must needs have been present
and familiar wifh the whole secret
workings of the Convention to understand
why the strongest mau should
be defeated and the weakest (perhaps)
nominated. Though disappointed this
I time we hope to" see Col. Gaillard
i elected two years hence to Congress,
where we may safely expect from him
a long and brilliant career. In this
connection I would like to speak
of the speech of Mr. C. A. Douglass,
nominating Colonel Gaillard. It was
by far the ablest and most eloquent
made before the convention, though
it be compared with the speeches of
such able and trained men as Mauldin,
Allen, Jbiumoert or jonnsou. jluis is
not my individual opinion alone, but
tlie unanimous verdict of the great
numbers whom I heard commenting
upon it. Judging from iiis oratorical
powers and abilities otherwise, I predict
for him a useful and brilliant
career in the Legislature, and shall at
least expect him"to tread the honorable
footsteps of the noble man whom he so
felicitously nominated at the Spartanburg
Everything is very dull down here
now. The farmers are still engaged
in their crops. They are having good
seasons now, and as the crops are

Politics are looking up a little,, aud
candidates may look to be pinned
down pretty close by the "onterrified"
on any issues brought forward. Thesentiment

and those wishing our support for the

OPENING THE COUNTY CANVASS.
The Meeting at Jackson's Creek?A Large
Gathering?Speeches by Several Candidates.
* Messrs. Editors: In obedience to
instructions received from the County
Executive Committee, the Jackson's
Creek Democratic Club assembled at
Major Robertson's School Honse on
the loth inst. for the purpose of opening
the campaign of 1SS4. Long before
the hour of commencement the
roads leading from the surrounding
parts of the county were thronged with
vehicles and horses loaded with Demo
crats, Desiues mose wno camu iu uu
the "gravel train."
The president, MP. R. E; Ellison,
promptly at the supposed end of the
gathering, called the Club and its
friends, including the candidates, into
the school house. The meeting wascalled
to order, when the president of
the Club introduced to the audience
Mr. C. A. Douglass, our talented and
cultured young countryman, and a
lawyer of no ordinary' ability, practising
his profession in Winnsboro, to
shoot the first gun for the grand and
never to be forgotten Democracy of
Fairfield county, and well and ably did
the young aspirant.acquit himself. He
touched every issue with care, and
proved to the audience that if entrusted
with the grave responsibilities of a
egislator it would be done in the
interest of the commonwealth of South
Carolina, not forgetting the interest of
his own county. He was followed by
the eloquent young Rutland, who acquitted
himself in a manner that justified
the reputation that preceded him.
Then comes the practical Hoffman,
followed by Mr. Wallace, one of Broad
River's favored sons. Then Feastervilic
shows her colors, by the introduction
of Mr. J. Feaster Lyies, an
honored name in his native county.
Last on the Representative list is the
name of Titos. S. Brice. He comes to
us as a well known friend, having
served us heretofore in the Legislature,
we do not think an introduction to the
geutfeman necessary. We would add
that twe regret that time will not permit
us to quote some of the logical
points given to us by the above-named
talented as pirantsfor legislative honors.

in order is Captain McMeeUin, in an
essay-on.education. He handled his
subject well, and it must be conceded
that it was worthy of the gentleman
who rendered it.
Dr. Boyd, our present School Commissioner,
was next called upon, and
his past efficiency as an officer of our
pnblic schools is sufficient proof that
he gave us some good talk. He was
followed by Mr. Johnston, who sought
the suffrage of the people, but would
not detain the audience by a speech, as
the hour was late.
This brings us down to the wouJd-be
guardians of our county affairs, and
first on the list is our Hibernian friend,
Democrat and rebel, J. G. Heron, who
is always full of good humor and wit.
He claims, and justly so, that good

working of the present Board of
County Commissioners, with a reply
to "X Roads." ill*. Richmond entertained
us for a short time in a manner
highly crcditable to hiuiself and the
Board of Commissioners, of which he
is a member, and assured us pf his
continued fidelity if honored by a reelection.
Mr. Robertson comes next
with the modest request that the county
allow for once a commissioner 011
the other side of the railroad. The
true and tried Harvey, being at his
own club, declined to speak.
Our worthy candidates, Messrs. 1
Kerr, Neil, and Jennings, made an
agreement not to address the meeting.
But we were frightened by the announcement
that a^ candidate for coroner
was on the ground, aud worse so
when Mr. Smith announced that he
was the gentleman, and would take
pleasure in sitting on our dead bodies
in an easy way, and then give them a
"VVq cannot close this interesting
meeting witnoup noticing tne presence
of the larger part of the sheriff's office.
He was out in his usual pleasant role,
and is ever ready to help a friend or
catch an enemy." Our efficient Judge
of Probate lent us his presence, and
was taking his chances very quietly.
The candidates one and all acquitted
themselves in a creditable manner.
We feel prond of .the honor conferred
npon a?, and hope that all left with the
conviction that the banners raised on
Jackson's Creek and all other sections
of our county and State will be hailed
as the banners of victory, truth, justice,
honesty and good will to all ruen.

"THE S WITZERLAMJ OF AMERICA."
| What Some Travelers Satv at the Springs
I and in the Mountains of North Carolina.
Messrs. Editors: I will endeavor to
give your readers an account of our
i trip through the mountain region of
Western North Carolina, and describe
some of the* beautiful scenery, etc.
Our party, consisting of Mrs. G. C.
Bacot and daughter, Miss M. C. Aiken,
Miss L. Skinner and your humble servant,
left "Winnsboro 011 the 1st inst.,
stopping two days at Sparkling Catawba
Springs, near Hickory, N. C.,
meeting quite a number of South Carolinians
there. Being anxious to" view
the lovely mountain scenery, we hasfViTe
'/laHrfliffnl ennf TTnV
Lyil^U. LV/ lilAO. v*y. W|/Vfc
wood White Sulphur Springs, justly,
styled the "Switzerland of America."
The mountain scenery all along the
Western North Carolina Railroad is
perfectly grand, almost beyond description,
nnsnrpassed by any other,
particularly at and near Hound Knob,
where three or four parallel tracks can
be seen at one time as the cars wind
their way up the mountains. Just
west of Round Knob, we pass through
four or five tunnels, one of them being
nearly two thonsand feet in length.
The hotel at;Round Knob, where we
breakfasted, is a beautiful structure,
built after the latest style, with all the
modern conveniences. . The meals are
very good. Just back of the hotel is
an artificial lake, containing a fountain
which thows a jet of water at an attitude
of two hundred and sixty-eight
feer^which is said to be six feet higher
than any jet of water in the world.
All along , the line we see nothing
but continuous chains of lovely mountains
on either side of the railroad
until we finally reach Wavnesville, a
pretty little village- nestled in the
mountains. At Waynesville depot we
take, the omnibus for the White Snlphur
Springs, about a half mile distant.
Here we are literally surrounded
by the Great Balsam and other
ranges of mountains, whose peaks
tower five and six thonsand feet above
sea level, presenting the most beautiful
views in all directions as far as the
eye can reach. Truly, fair Nature has
made an extra effort to beautify this
lovely spot, which, I think, cannot be
surpassed in grandeur and sublimity'
anywhere on this continent east of the
jlcockv Mountains. mis piace .is uv?
hundred feet higher than Asheville,
with an average temperature' ranging
between fifty-five and ."sixty degrees
(and sometimes considerably lower)
during the warmest weather. Overcoats
arc in great demand and feel exceedingly
comfortable during the cool
nights and mornings. Numbers of
people are arriving daily, and (here is
a "big rush" here this month.
The young ladies outnumber the
young gentlemen about three to one,
and, as a consequence, young men are
at a high premium. Can you not send
us a detachment of the "G. L. I." to
help us insure the ladies a pleasant
time? Brass buttons, you know, seem
to have a large amount of magnetism
about them. ' We
have about two hundred souls
here now, and the number is increas
in-g- daily. A large number of North
Carolinians are here, including quite a
number from South Carolina, Louisiana,
Texas, Virginia, Georgia and a
few from the North.
It is a perfectly beautiful sight to
behold the snow-white clouds as they
occasionally descend far below the
mountain peaks, seeming as though
they would kiss the earth beneath and j
almost completely eveloping them.,
A few days a party of ladies and j
gentlemen, upon horseback, ascended
to' the summit of "Lickstone Mountain,"
whose peak* towers about six
thousand feet above the sea, for the
purpose of viewing the grand scenery.
They report as being able to see into
several States; including Georgia; and
that they encountered no bears nor
wolves daring the trip. "Wid." Hertford,
the celebrated bear hunter and
mountain guide, was with the party.
"Wid." thinks he has killed about
three hundred bears, or more, during
his life, and says he is ready at time
for a bear or wolf hunt in the mountains
with his old "trusty" rifle and his
bear dogs. He tells us he has had
several hand-to-hand conflicts with
bears, and has risked His life many
times while hunting.
These mountain rides are sometimes
dangerous, particularly while descending,
as the horses arc apt to slip and
fall. They are extremely hard on
horses as well as fatiguing to ine naers.
Too ranch cannot.be s$jd in praise,
of tbis charming pjace, completely
environed by beautiful mountaius,
with its exhilarating and bracing
mountian air, its scenery of uiisurpassing
loveliness, and its excellent
white sulphur water, possessing such
unusual curativa properties.
Mr. J. C. S. Timberlake, a Georgian,
is the polite, energetic proprietor
of the hotel. Sis taVes are bountifully
supplied with everything nice.
His gentlemanliness, accommodation
and general attention, to the wants of
his guests, are enough to attract large
numbers of people to this lovely spot,
very appropriately- termed the "Switzerland
of America," not to mention
the attractiveness of the place.
"While at Wavnesville, 1 met Dr.
J. D. Palmer, formerly a citizen of j
Fairfield, who now resides in this beau-'
tiful land. He is hale and hearty, and :
he desires, particularly, to be remem- j
