TURSDAY T NOR"C, OGT. 23.
The First Day of the Fair.
Notwithstanding tWe6ad condition. of
the weather, the Fair opened yesterday
under ver favorable circumstances.
The number of entries amounted to
nine hundred and fifty-eight, and the
articles on exhibition are very good.
The greatest display is in the Stock de
partment, the department which the
country at-large is most interested in,
and ths cultivation of wbich is chiefly
ealculated to develop general prosperi
ty. There is a considerable sprinkling
of blooded stock both among horses
and cattle. The display of South Caro
lina raised horses is fine; the colts es
pecially N. The next highest number of
entries is in field crops and vegetables,
-100 entries. As you enter the first
floor you find cotton in bales, cotton
stalks, (some six feet high raised on up
land,) pumpkins of wonderful size,
huge beets, (no "dead beats,") a splen
did collection of second crop Irish pota
toes, sugar cane grown in this county,
that looks like it might have been grown
in Florida, rice grown in Newberry,
cabbages, and many other things too
numerous to mention-all well worth
seeing, showing what wonders can be
accomplished on our lands by proper
cltivation. Up.stairs is the display of
household and fancy articles. &c.,
pickles, wines, lard, vinegar, soap, jel
lies, preserves, cake, bread, in delight
ful profusion. And then the fancy nee
dle work-one could linger over this
for bours, and could almost wish he
were a woman that be might make such
pretty things. Some of these are near
ly as pretty as the dear creatures them
selves. Could we say more ?
It's an abrupt change; but the dis
play of sheep, goats, swine and poultry
is first rate. Indeed all departments
are well and fully represented.
