F.<-jm thc Abbeville Banner, 2nd inst.
Our Distries was visited on Friday last with
4.e most disastrous freshet ever known in this
region. The los-s of pr.operty in Crops, Stock,
BrIdges and Mills, we are satisfied will not fall
short of half a million of dellars. Scarcely a
bridge has been left in the District, and commu
nication in many parts entirely cut oil. Of the
mills we have heard from, appear to be all more
or less damaged, and only two or three can do
grinding up to this time within twenty miles.
Several fine merchant mills have been swept
entirely away, and others irreparably injured.
'.his itself is a calamity upon the people, and
- the difficulty of getting grinding is great. The
destruction to the Corn crop upon bottom lands
is immense which will have the tendency to keep
up the price for twelve nmonths more; from all
we can learn, lifteen thoirsand dollars will not
rebuild the bridges that hu.ve been taken away.
During the rain a whirl- wind passed over the
edge of our Village and. completely destroyed
the house of Mr. Willie m Knox whicli was a
frame building and reeer.tly put up ; Mrs. Knox
ivas in the house at the: time and much injured
ty timber falling upon her. Some of the sta
bles and out-houses of Mr. Joseph Moore was
also much injured. This rain although it lasted
but one day fell in torrents. and the very win
"dows of heaven seeied opened and to threaten
us with another general deluge. It will long
be remembered as one of the must extraordina
ry freshets that has ever been known, in this
edistrict. We trust that the fenrs of our farm
ers have caused them to represent their losses
far greater than they will be found upon further
examination. Onr people were but illy pre.
pared for such losses in thefr crops. God grant
that it may be long before similar scenes are
Since writing the above we have been enabled
fo gather additional particulars of the destrue
tion caused by the freshet, and every item goes
te confirm waint we have heard and stated. We
are informed 'by lion. D. L. Wardlaw, who has
a plantation immediately on the bank of Little
River, that his prospects for a crop are entirely
blasted. The damage done to his fencing and
land is very great i he thinks he will not be able
to replace his fencing until after the gathering
of what may be left of his crops. Ile further

up on the river, Col. Martin and Mr. Jas. Faii

to the extent reported elsewlhere. 4
The prospects of upland erops, particularly
of cotton, are also much crhanged by reason of
the continued rains and cold nights. Very little
progress has been made in the curing of fodder,
althosgr the season is now pretty well advanc
ed. Few have succeeded in properly curing
any portion of the crop, whilst the most of that
whiei has been pulled is much damaged or
Since Satutday evening we have had clear
and pleasant weather; and it is hoped that the
season will prove more favorable fur the na-.
turing and gathering of the crops.
We are gratified to learn that no damage has
resulted to any portion of the Charlotte and
South Carolina Railroad from the recent
freshets. It was reported on Saturday that the
bridge over one fork of Fishing Creek was
carried away; but the whole damage appears to
have been in the sinking of one or two of the
posts of the trestle. It was remedied in time
I for the train to pass over that evening.
DISASTrnous FAESNET.-During the past week
i':ere war an almost incessant fall of rain, in
conseqnence of which, the streams of our Dis
itiet are swollen to- an extent hitherto uneqalled.
The Cotton crop- is injured considerably, and
we think the low-ground corn crop entirely des
troyed. Corn lands, which promise to' yield
thirty and forty bushels to the acre, were for
two or three days covered by water-the tassel
just appearing above it. Tfhe Saluda tiver,
while we write, is seven feet higher than it was
in the great Yazoo freshet of '96-or has ever
been since. Dwelling houses, mills, bridges,
all have been swept away by this tremendous
flood. The bridge belonging to the Greenvilt
Rail Road Company across the Saluda is still
standing-ainyost "-alone in its glory"-for in
deed it is the only one that we heard of as yet
that has not beaen washed away-even that
beautiful bridge, belonging to the same Com
pany, across Broad River, at Alston, which was
so generally admired-it too has gone. Consi
derable damage has been done to the trestle
work beyond Broad River-but to what extent
cannot be ascertained.
Thus we might continue to write, for almost
every moment we hear of some new disaster,
but we will desist. The dinage to the District
is indeed immense. The loss to the R-til Rload
Company cannot at present be estimated. But
can you not foresee some of the consequences
to o'ur Town? We like not to grunible-so
will cease our complaints, trusting that soon
the road will be rebuilt, and the injuries, its far
as may be repaired. There is orne at the head
of the Company, who was never known to give
up to despair. . He, we know, with his indomii

adit must be consolatory to hsfriends and
relatives to know that the strongest sytmpathties
of our community were manifested throughout
these days of suspense. Three sepatrate parties
of our citizens, on Tuesday night and WVednes

that devolved upon him, and his energy arid

they will not be able to supply.

hogs in every region of Kentucky and In-diana,
as largely increasing in n umbers and of better
quality, and adds:
We hear but little front Illinois, Town and

seaison, it in more thtan probable there will be an

Throughout Ohio we learn that more young
hogs are being fe?d than usual, atnd in many see

The highl price of ptork has caiused the farmuers
through~out the WVest to bestow as much care

their chtildrent. Throughout mtany sections of
the South, the planters are making strong ent
deanvors to "grow their own meat."
We hear of contracts by the packers for the
future delivery of some 20,000 hogs, to be fat

Several thousand have beent entgaged by- Madt

TIlE RECENT GREAT FRESIIET, C
Foa accounts of the destructive floods of water a
which have lately inundated almost every part of the t
Southern Statee, we refer our readers to the extracts e
from various authentic sources which we publish this f
week. The conclusion is that this Freshet, although
exaggerated as to certain localities, is withal the most
disastrous ono ever experienced among us. In our
own State, immense injuries have been sustained by
many planters. Such however is the abundance of
our provision crops all ovet the country, tdiat these
disasters, however trying upon individuals, will not
perceptibly aflect the general weal.
The Rail-Road Companies have suffered, in some
instances, very seriously. We fear it is a sad blow
to the Greenville and Columbia Rail-Road Company,
struggling as they were to carry on their enterprise
to success. The boss of their Chief-Engineer, Col.
Baow.N, is even more unfortunate for them than their
pecnniary loss. For lie was the very soul of this
undernaking almost from its commencement, and we
imagine it will be most diflicult to supply his place.
It was indeed a inalancholy circumstince, the unfor.
tunate death of this enterprising and talented man,
in the very meridian of life, his labors after distinc
tion in his profession just crowned with success, and
lorked up to by a young and dependant family. They
have our warmest sympathies.
Wishing that it mtay be long before we shall be
called upon to record so much of destruction and
suffering again, we point our readers to the selections
we have made for their information upon these points
and leave the subject.
OV'R ADVERTISING COLUMNS.
We would respectfully call the attention of the
business public to the extent and neatness of our
advertising department. Without boasting, we assert
, confidently that no typos surpass our own in that
taste of arrangement and skill of execution, necesary
to give completeness of finish to every portion of a
paper, and especially to set forth in handsome promi
nence the publication of advertising notices. In this
respect we are willing to stand the test of oomparison
with any sheet in the State. When we add to this
that there are not perhaps a half dozen of our Caro
lina cotemporaries which equal us in extetit of eir
culation, wve think we may safely recommend our
paper to business men at large and particetlarly to
those of our own section, of Ihamiburg and Augusta,
Iof Newberry, of Columbia and of Charleston, a. a
most valuable advertisiung medium. It is with grati
tude that wye acknowledge the patronage of this

sible liberality Ly.,saw-e..[fjutfa ""'

COTTON PROSPECTS. ma
I-r is more thtan probable that the cotton crop now
coming in will commnid an amply remutuerative
price. Steh seems to be the opitnion of financiers
tonerally. The leading paper of the Union (te New ral
kork Iferadi) centers into an elaborate and most inge- tiv
ious argumetnt to prove that such will be the case, ed
.nd in fact that our great staple nmust henceforth oc- e
upy a batsis of exchanigc so firm and imperative as to T
scape entirely the fluctuationsa to which it has been qui
'ithierto subject. The only impediment to thu con- dol
ummnation of this condition of thitigs is the spirit of see
bholition, which still rages with unabated fury and of
ilikely to do so for a season. This overcome, (and spa

The first four or five mnnths of thie session was
Lsed in long and elaborate speeches upon questions,
not foreign to the business of either house, at least
ich as might have been disposed of in quick order,
id with little or no discussiun. ICossu-T nnd his
ttriotism, Hungary and her wrongs occupied, we
tn safely say, two months of the session, and al
iongh the question involved, il relation to the Great

ere entirely extraneous to the purposes for which
ongress had assembled, yet Jore time, labor and
rgument were expenled in upm intervention
inn any other single subject o0teo session. To this
iuse, however, we are indebted for some remarkably
ne speeches, perhaps the best of the past Congres
The interminable printing question and the Presi.
ential election contained in them the germs of nmuch
hicanery, bargain-making and arty electioneering
irsomuch that the speeches thetn, although care
lly preptred and delivered e a set phnise of
peech" reflected no credit ipon their authors-in
eed the subjects were ordinary, and the remarks in
elation thereto did not rise above them. Thus the
rst part of the session, crowded as it was with such
ever-ending discussions upon uninteresting and, to
.cry many, unintelligible questions, progressed bitt
lowly. It was impossible for i to rid itself (if tho
iass of unimportant debates with which it was en
umbered, and therefore was compelled to grope as it

The great celerity, however .witli which both

The immense rush of business towards the close of
