Newberry as it is torday--Its Business
and its Advantages.
Newberry is one of the most thriving
towns in the State. With an enterpris
ing and energetic population, backed
up hy a fertile conntry and industrious
and successful planters, she would long
ago have risen to the dignity and pro
portions of a city but for her lack of
railroad facilities. Her energy and
pluuk are shown by the manner with
which she has met and overcome mis
fortunes. A fire in 1865 destroyed
nealrv half of the business portion of
the town, but so conipletely has she re
covered that the fact is scarcely remem
bored. iarch 8, 1877, a terrible con
filagration swept away a large portion
of the business part of town. Starting
at Pool's Hotel, corner of Pratt and
Caldwell Streets, it laid in ashes every
store on both sides of Pratt Street for a
distance of two blocks. At present
there is nothing to indicate the ravages
of that fire except the handsome build
ings that have taken the places of those
destroyed, and the ascending walls of
what is soon to be one of the handsomest
hotels in the State. On the 17th of Feb.
18709, another great fire oecurred, sweep
ing away the entire block of stores en
closed by Pratt, CaIdwell, Friend and
Nance Streets. Already the entire
block is re-built, except the three stores
on the corner, which are now going up,
and the last state of that block will be
far better than the first. Newberry has
had several other fires of less impor
tance; but she scems to he imbued with
the qualities of Phoenix, and rises each
time from her ashes with fresher beau
ty and vigor.
As a cotton market Newberry has no
superior in the interior of the State.
Our lands are admirably adapted to the
ileecy staple. Some idea of~the busi
ness done here in that line may be ga
thertd from the following figures, show
in(Y the number of bales shipped from
this point for several years past, from
September to September:
173-4, ~25,52 0 116-7,, 19,395
174-5, 25,156 1S77-8,
1873-6, -1,855 I 1S78-9, 19,067
There are fifty-three stores in Newber
ry, divided as follows: Dry Goods 12;
Groceries 8; Dry Goods and Groceries
combined 6; Confectioneries, Cigars,
etc, 2 ; Bar-rooms 6 ; Furniture 2;
Drugs 3; Haxdware 2; Bookstores 2;
Millinery 3; -Bakery 1; Tinware 2;
Shoes 1; Saddlery and-Harness 1; Jew
elry 2. There are 2 Livery Stables, a
Thespian Club and Hall, a National
Bank, 2 Newspapers, 2. Trial Justices,
22 Lawyersf6 Phiysiciam, 3 Dentists.
2 Undertakers, 1 Marble yard, and 9
Uhurches,-6 white and 3 colored. Her
population is between 2,500 and 3,000.
.The healh of N 0wherry cannot h.ex
elled by that of any section of he State.
Her e~dcational facilities are of a very
superior character. The -Nowherrv
Coilege, under the auspices. of the Lu

that bear the pretentious- -and high
sounding title of "Colleges"
Taking Newberry all round, in her
social, religious, educaional and busi
ness advantages, there is not a more
pleasant nor desirable place anywhere.
This is abundantly proved by the fact
that very few ever leave her to hunt
other homes; if they do they soon re
gret it, and in nine cases out of ten
they are glad to return. To a Newber
rian it is emphatically true that "there
is no place like home."
