"Sir, let the system (of the gold
trust) go on, and we shall soon not
know our country. We shall see a
new America. On the map where
these United Slates have s'ood wc shall
soon behold a country that will be
strange to us. We shall see a class
of idle rich ana a class or ia:e poor,
the former a handful, the latter a host.
We shall no longer bahold a community
of men with spirits all active
and stirring, contributing, all of them,
to the public welfare while they partake
in it, pushing on their fortunes
and bettering their own condition and
helping to swell, at the same time, the
cup of general prosperity t? overflowing.
We shall see no more of that
credit which reaches out its hand to
honest enterprise; oc that certainty of
reward which cheers on labor to the
utmost stretch of [its sinews; of that
personal and individual independence
whieh enables every man to say that

ruin or occupation; distress for present
means; the prostration of credit and

of improvement or change is a state
of things which uo intelligent people

heard the following fact9 concerning
it. Captain Buchanan, of Revolutionary
fame, and great uncle of our
esteemed townsman, Mr. G. II. Monaster,
owned a negro slave narnel
Fortuue. He accompanied Captain
Buchanan during the Revolution as
his servant, and at the time ot Lafayette's
landing at Georgetown, he made
himself necessary to that officer by
performing the duties of valet, Captain
Bnchanan being stationed there at
that time. On Lafayette's return to
the United States in 1825, For une
heariug of his being iu Camden saddled
a horse and went to that to^n.
He insisted on seeing Lafayette, who
recognizing him, invited him to join
him in a glass of wine. When Fortune
retarned to Fairfield he cultivated
the land near the spring which now
bears his name. Ever since that time,
about 1825, the spring has.been known
to the inhabitants of the "Granite
City," as "Fortune Springs," and
even the surrounding roads have borrowed
the name?wbile tbe rising
generation call the locality "our park,"
those of older growth designate the
woods with the name of one of
Winnsboro's oldest African residents.
Oar farmers have about finished
harvesting their crops. Most of them
made very good crops this year. The
price of cotton though is so extremely
low that they will realize very little
for it. Our advise to them is to plaut
less cotton aDd to strive to make their
supplies at home. Then, and not.nntil
then, will they improve tiieir condition.
More oats have been sown here
this fall than has heretofore been the
ca6e in years. Some wheat has been
sown also. ' Most of oar farmers have
got good turnip patches.

informed by a citizen living near there, j
that about four hundred yards from

Mobley's Meeting House seems to
have been a place of rendezvous for
Tories and British in 1780. In Draper's
