Sec. 1694. It shall not be lawful
for any person in this Stato betweon

Tiib Market.?Cotton is now coming
in. town in considerabl6 quantities
every day, and it is selling very well
and at moderately good prices. It is
claimed by somo peoplo that Winnsboro
is not as good a market as somo
of tho neighboring towns. "We believe
that our friends aro incorrectly

What Wilt- Tiiey Do??It is now
tho subjoct of much speculation among

Tub A. It. Synoi>.~TIio Synod of
tho Associato ltoformed Presbyterian
Clin roll of tho South met in Loxington
county, Virginia, last week. Tho
Rev. R. G. Miller, pastor of Now
llopo church in this county, was elected
Moderator, and his bearing as presiding
oftlcor of that body was tho subject
of many llattoring comments. Mr. Millor
was very happy in reply to tho
address of the delegate from the Unitod
Presbyterian Church, ond lie is deservedly
esteemed one of the most
talented and promising young ministers
in his church. Tho meeting was
very largely attended and generally
regarded as one of the most interesting
for a number of years. Wo aro
sorry that wo cannot give a full account
of it. Tho Synod will meet

The Issok Squarely Made.?'Tlio
Republican Convention, recently in
session in Columbia, has nominated a
full State ticket and very properly
turned its back on the Fiddlers. Tho
following is tho ticket nominated: For
Governor, D. T. Corbin, of Charleston;
for Lieutenant-Governor, D. A.
Straker, of Columbia: for AdjutantGeneraj,
Gen. Carlos J. Stolbrand, of
Columbia; for Treasurer, C. C.Macoy,
of Chester; lor Secretary of State,
R. L. Smith, of Charleston; for Superintendent
of Education, tho Rev.
Joshua Wilson, of Florence; for Attorney-General,
Samuel W. Melton, of
Columbia; for Comptroller-General,
E. J. Sawyer, of Benncttsville. Tho
ticket is perhaps as good as could have
been nominated, considering the mateotnl
11UI I1VIU >v JI toil (I OU1VUL1UU UUII1U uu
made. Of Mr. Corbin it might bo
said that ho is a man of more than
ordinary ability and a known and
recognized partisan. It will be remembered
that this is tho samo Corbin
that unsuccessfully contested Senator
Butlor's scat in the United States
Senate. With tho exception of Mr.
Melton, and ho is a man of considerable
brilliancy, there is but little ability
represented in tho personnel of this
ticket. AVc are lmppy though that
this Convention saw proper to nominate
a ticket. It will fire tho Democratic
heart, smother the factional
murmurings of malcontonts and teach
the friends of our civilization to rally
to the standard and cause of the Democratic
party. Let every Democrat
wake up and see to it that tho State
and county canvasses are lifelike and
The Day of Atonement.?Yom
Kippur, or tho Day of Atonement, the
holiest day. in the calendar of the
Israelites, began at sundown on Sunday
evening, and closed at the same
hour on Monday. The stores of all
the Israelites heroworo closed, and the
day was duly observed by them. The
day is especially sacred among all the
faithful, and is always carefully observed.
Although God has declared
that on the Day of Atonement man

and sages of Israel show that the
declaration refers only to transgressions
of tho Divino law. Sins between
man and his fellow man are not forgiven
unless every reparation 1ms bcou
made to tho wronged party. It is,
therefore,, obligatory upon every son
of Israol who has wronged his neighbor
by word or deed to solicit his forgivncss
before the advent of the Day
of Atonement in order that ho may
appear in the prcsenco of bis God with
I n_ aIoai* vai/1 4a
| t? vav??k vv/???jv*vii?vuj T VUi VI VilV/UVyV IV
his fellow man. It is also the duty of
every man to forgivo those who nek
it, for if ho is not lenient to the feelings
of others he cannot expect that
tho Almighty will extend mercy to
him. God has proclaimed that on this
dny Israel ''shall afllict his soul;" that
ho shall bo dotachcd from all sonsual
onjoyment; that ho shall abstain from
food and wator for twenty-four hours,
and also from all association with
worldly affaire, and that his soul shall
bo wrapt in holy communion with its
Maker, and pour forth its tribute of
slnore repentance unalloyed by any
feeling that may diminish its purity.
It was on this day that the High Priest,
clothed in white robes, cmblomatio of
purity, ontorcd tho sanctum sanctorum
of tho Temple at Jerusalem, and
with oyes raised to heaven and hands
to the forehead, forminc thof peculiar
flguro of tho priesthood, invoked for
tho assembled thousands of his peoplo
that sacred benediction which has
boon incorporated into tho liturgy of
almost every religious demonination.

lie enmn robbed of his terrors. Endowed
with a voice of great sweetness, sho had
learned to sing some of tho "Sweet Songs
of Zloii" with surprising power for ono so

thought, that joined with that "choir of
ton thousand times ten thousand, and
thousands of thousands," sho now stands
before tho Groat "NVhlto Throne, singing tho
praises of hor Kedeoiner. M.

I The .living waters he has quaffed?

Not doadt not dead! ho has but passed

And, gone boforo you, smilingly;

Then let your tears bo holy tears,

Yes, fot her, her work Is done;
Sho has fought her light and won;
Only one thus wearied knows
Such ineffablo repose."
On Thursday, tho 28th of August, was
tho sad occasion of tho death of Mrs.
Elizabeth K. Andekson. Sho had |
reachod the advanced ago of seventy-three
years, and tho greater number of these j
years were snout; ill her ancestral homo In
Fairilold, amid relatives and friends, who
know her but to lovo her. It was a largo
crowd, who sadly followod her earthly remains
to tho old Brick Church (Ebenozer)
on tho 29th of August. Thoro a good sermon
from tho ltov. J. K. McCain was attentively
heard. Then wo saw her "laid
to rest." There was and is much sympathy
felt for her only sister and son and
four little motherless grandchildren, who
so sorrowfully stood around tho open
grave. It will bo sweet for them to remember
their dear one's affection for them,
and theirs for her; for tho memory entertained
for a relative or friend deceased, so
rlifTnrmif. fmm mmr it '
seems to speak in tho heart, in truth It is
tho memory of the heart. IIow many
things around thorn will touch tho strings
of those melancholy musings. They will

the room, they will see that exquisite piece
of work that was done by tho one tlioy
loved. Tliey are all memorials of their

By birds and blossoms bo forsaken,
But, oh! wo griovo for voices hushed,
That never, never shall awaken.
Wo miss tho eyes that nevermore
Shall Hash their love-li^ht into ours;
We sigh because they come no more,
In time of frost?in ?ime of ilowers."
Mrs. Anderson was the eldest daughter
of Col. Win. Kinenid, and she was tho last,
but one, in tho State, of the proud race
who love that name. About fifty years
ago sho was converted, and lired such a
lifo that death found her not unprepared.
She had many noble qualities as a Christian
woman, among which wore her kind
hospitality and exalted power of entertaining.
Long will her relatives and friends
cherish in tender remembrance the silver
treasures of her timely words. The Heavenly
wisdom that controlled tho heart and
tonguo of our friend was "pure, peaceable,
gentle, easy to bo entreated, full of inorcy
and good fruits, without partiality and
without hypocrisy," She bore her sufferings
