TORE " STRANGER" COMIC AGAIN.
[Seene opens in piaza of Corar's Hotel.]
Ed. Ah my dearfullow! Glad to see.you amongst
as once more. How do you do, when did you arrive
and what's the news?
Straa. To reply laconically, in the up-country
style, I will say; "well:" "yesterday:" and "none at
all." The truth .is, I havo come here to learn the
news. You people of Edgefield, it is said, consider
your little town the centre of the universe, and should
therefore of gourso know more than all the rest of
us. The 'elatiale should have a wider scope of vis
ion than we of the common sort.
Ed. Now there, you are jeering us. Come, none
of that. To be sure Edgefeld is a great place; and
we are cognirant of most things, I admit. But there
are a few little circumstances of the outside world
which a cosmopolitan like yourself may be allowed
to be more familiar with than even we of Edgefield,
-such for instance as the price of maearoni in Na
p1es, the prospect of the fig-erop in Smrna, and a
few others less important particulars of intelligence.
We allow you that much.
Strcang. Upon my honor you flatter us,-you, who
have no railroad, no telegraph. and only a tri-weekly
mail communication with the rest of mankind !-you
who are isolated here and cut off as it were from
Rd. Iuld there:-why, sir, it is this very position
of things that gives us our peculiar character of ex
cellence, Celetial excellenee if you will'so have it,
We get the news only after it has been sifted and win
nowed by the coarser barbarians around us,-men
whose very complexions havo the dark tinge of their
steam-engines and whopse visions are dimmed by the
dust kicked up in their mad career. Thus we are
ever the favored recipients of the truet if not of the
"n,,.rest news." Like ]tasselas in the Happy Valley,
we also have space and leisure to inwardly digest and
properly appreciate the absurdities of the ignoble herd
of mankind, as they are revealed to us through this
filtering process. I need say no more, to show you
the decided advantages of our stand-point of intel
ligenee and observation.
Strang. And are you in earnest sir ? Do you real.
ly hug this fond delusion to your soul? Is it true,
that, on these pretentious grounds, your little town
here is to be kept immured in a slothful retirement
At only for Fee-jee Islanders? Can your people so
easily soothe themselves into indifference to the greal
race of progress and development which the descen.
dants of Alam are running on almost overy other
spot of the civillized globe ?
Ed. Tut, tut, man! Have I not said that this is
our special strength ? The rest of the world, sir,
are our laborators. We sit in judgment upon their
fast follies anmid the deop wisdom of our reflectivc
seclusion. We scorn the wealth and magnificenet
attained by them in their dirty turmoil. We have
our peaceful pleasures all to ourselves. Cold water
and vegetables (with chickens and an occa:ional bil
of mutton,) make up the delicious sustenance of our
physical man; And a charming repose of thought se.
cures our mental faculties from premature dohay.
But it is of no use to argue a settled point. Say nc
more,-our village fathers, with all the solemn force
of an intelligent loaferism, have decided that it shall
be so; and as well might you attempt to amend the
lans of the Mdes and Persians, or accelerate the
steady and d.gnified tread of the stately elephant.

edifice arising in your midst, which "mine boat" of
the Sa.na lMo:M:s has informed me is to be a veri.

Ed. True, sir, very true, with the exception thal
it is called a churcha and not a temple.

it is of the picturesque old Gothic style; hut as tc
all other points. Ifsancy it is a rerality.
Straang. OIf course, of course,-aud apparently a
very solid reality. It will at all events prove a very
handsome architectural addition to your town. Ought
it not, sir, to stir up the members of your Protestant
denominations to a 'little more munifience in the
end.,wment of their sanctuaries ? I have oftee
thought that the houses in which the worship of the
Living Go'd is attended to should be built of stone it
possible, or at least of more durable 'materials than
are commonly used in our country.
Ed. And why ?
Strrag. First, for thenanifest reason that it ic
due to Hlini that Jli churches should surpass in ex
cellence all the other buildings of earth.
Stag Secondly, it is better for the religious wel
fare of men that they should worship od where
their fathers worshipped before them. There ih
something imposing, in feeling that we knaeel where
our ancestors before us all likewise knelt. It essen.
tially paromu.tes veneration and religious fervor. liow
can it be expected that American Christians will
ever experienee this salutary influence, with the
fimsy and perishable manner of church architecture
still so general amongst us, especially in the country
and in country villages ?
Ed. Y'ou are entirely right, and I agree with you
that the present instance isa a good example set to all
Christian denominations. Puaritr'ndvn mnay ire against
you, baut Truth and fiuty clearly sustain your posi.
ion. Arid now, sir, yhall we not take a partial stroll

in the appearance of things since last you were haere.

which is far better, whlo will make themselves bless

that they are jewels. They are the traue grit, and so

A BIGE OF SORROW.
There's a voice from the visions of midnight arouhd
How solemn and mournful, how death-like the sound!
That breathes to my slumbers the woes which cur.
And echoes the words "all alone, all alone!"
There's a voice from remenbrause which breathes in
The pleasure I've witnessed, the rorrow I've borne,
I list to the fate which awakens a tear,
While hearing the accents "alone, all alone."
There's a voice from my fancy whos hopes have been
That weeps its illusion in heart-rending moan,
There's a voice from the sorrow of love unrequited,
Which tolle me again I'm "alone, all alone."
When I turn to the scenes of my childhood to rove,
And muse on the objects now faded and flow,
When I think of the few that are left me to love,
I then hear the whisper, "alone, all alone."
Vainly I knock at humanity's portal,
And ask for that friendship alas ! I have known !
The world shuns the prayer of the life-wearied mortal,
And mny heart sighs tde answer, "alone, all alone."
And while there are those who are seemingly dear,
There still is a voice whose serene gentle tone
Reminds me that tho' for awhile they are near,
At last I shall fnd I'm "alone, all alone."
Sadly I go to my own silent slumber
And kneel in my thoughts at a heavenly throne;
Sweetly I dream that 'mid joys without number,
I live, love and hope without hearing "alone."
And oh! if there be in you regions above
A place where the torments of life are unknown,
Where days are unnumbered and sorrow is love,
Surely there will be rest for the child of "alone."
THE Cnois.-The Lumpkin Ga., Palladium, of
the 2d inst., speaking of the crops in that sec
tion of the State, says: "Wheat is being har
vested, and despite the rust, we have been blessed
with a fair yield. Oats bid fair to be ruined by
rust. Corn and cotton is indeed promising. AN e
doubt whether a better prospect has been seen

\VIW .-The wheat in this section, (says the
Athens Ga., -u/ck'au, oftlie 3dinst.,) looks well,
and we think it is now-the most of it-out of
the reach of rust.
. Fon some time past we have had fine weather
for the growing crops, and we learn .from well
informed planters, that the prospect for a good
yield is most excellent. As yet nothing has
suffesred from dry weather in this section. The
wheat crop in this vicinity promises an abun
dant yield.--Georgia West Point Citizen.
Rrs-r rx Gnaz.--The wvheat and oat crops
throughout this section have been entirely de
stroyed by rust, and we learn that in some pla
eses it is lbeginuing its inroads upon corn. There
will not be sufficient wheat and oats made to
fur-nish seed for the next season, and it is great
ly feared that the corn crop, notwithstanding the
favorable season, will lbe very short.

with a number of our friends from various see

Ed. My dear sir, I perceive you are, as usual,
disposed to be severo upon us.
Strang. Perhaps it is because yiu are, "as usual,"
liable to criticism. But no:-I have no desire to
censure, except where it is palpably just to do so.
There are many features of your little town that are
truly pleasant to behold. There ii an air of neat
ness and comfort about it which certainly distin
guishes it above most other villages of my acqunin
'tance. Walking down your main street just now,
it was good to look at the proces of whitening up
the yard fences on both sides. Of.course all these
fences will be whitened now, to bein keeping. Other
wise the tot ensemble of the street will rather partake
of the shabby-genteel,-partly decent, partly dirty.
But with all renewed at the same time, the effect will
be very pleasing. And by this sort of. concert of ac
tion heroafter, the appearance of your "grand entry"
can always be kept uniform in it-s neatness.
Ed. Sir, you are 'certainly In the right again.
While you are partiular in your notions, you
are also sensible in your suggestions; ani I
wish our villagers 'could allrhear you talk. I am
sure they would heed what you say.
Strang. I hope so. The truth is I like old Edge
field, if she is a long way off from the big road.
This you know though already. -I only repeat the
expression of my regard, that you may not think
me cynical in any observations I have made or may
Ed. My friend, you are a fair and a reasonable
man enough; and I have great respect for your opin
ions. Give me now a succinet estimate of the good
and the bad you have seen about' town in our walk.
Strang, Certainly, without hesitation.-I will be

cellor's residence has been much improved,.I see. It
is but little like the barn it ised to be. Put that
Ed. Good ?
Strang. C'est cela niene. But the rocky road in
coming down the hill from his' house is still barba
rously rough. Mark that
Ed. Bad, of course.

the *gme, you may characterize any way you please.
Ed. Indifferent then.
Struaaj. Let It be as you say.
Ed. So there we have Buncombe, good, bad and
indifferent. Now come over the branch into the
Strunag. Well, sir, here's your fine looking Odd
Fellows & Masonic Building. Mark that "good."
Ed. Good. Go on.
Strang. Then hero's your.admirably expansive
public square-perhaps you may mark it "better."
Strang. And in the midst of this commodious
square is your beautiful little enclosure of trees,
now almost interlocking their exuberant branches in
seemingly affectionate contiguity. Put that down
Ed. Bert; Hurrah for us !
Strang. But, on the other haul, I must mention
your rather common Court House.
Ed. Shall' I mark it "bad?"
, Strang. Yes;-And there's that shocking street
that loads out by the big old Hotel, which may be
said to be " worse."
Bd. Worse ; well, sir.
Sgtrang. And lastly (Stranger gets up and edges
toirurde the door of the satasrn) here is this ugly,
dilapidated, crazy, dirty, disgraceful piata of your
abominable old Printing Offie,-and that's-(hoarse

would not likcely be a candidate before the Legislature
was fair and just, so that no charge oaf E.recuatire

Magistrate." His act is likewis'o correct, in view of
Col. HrAxxa's high character, respected age, and un
questioned gallantry of spirit.

.The attention of the farmers and planters of Edge

more citirzens will become members of this Society
before the Fair in October next. Whether they do
or not, it is earnestly asked that they will make pre
paration to become exhibitors on that occasion. Those
who mauy do so should read over the Premium List
carefully and choose at once the departments in
which they will compete for premiums. And here
we give the assurncee that these Premiums are not
imaginary.. Those given' out at the last Faair may
now be seen at this place in the shap'e of beautiful
ups (silver plate) of various sizes; the pitcher
awarded to Mr. Lou HiLLr, as an extr'a premium for
the haest Devon Bull, is as beautiful a prize -as any
society is in the huabit of giving. The premium plate
fortheo next fair will be still better; And we hope
all will come into this most useful competition. As
we may not publish the Premium List again, those
wishing t', have it for reference should preserve the

During the first rehearsal of the " Hunchback," a t

perintended the stage-directions was frequently an

very umuch doubted the success of the play. Clarless
Koblo thought the part, of Sir Thomas Clifford un
worthy of his talents ; he consented, however, to per.
form it, for his dlaughter's sake. This nettled Knowles,
who would not listen to a single suggestion.
"Give Sir Thomas Olifford another entrunco and

" I can add nothing mere," replied Knowles.
Hero the parties turned from each other, and the
business of the stage went on for a few moments lon

"IExeuso me, Mr. Knowles; but this part absolute-.
l requires an addition: a alight alteration would
render it more effective. You smust make another
speech for Sir Thomas."
Knowles colored, and, turning abruptly to "the
patrician of the stage," gave vent to his feelings in

" Nothing in the tert," said Kemblo; "but I'think

TRAGEDY IN TEAB.
BELTO%, Bz.i. Co., Texas, May 18.
I have to record an awful tragedy that occur- *
red in Brown county, in this State, last week.
Two entire families consisting of ten persons,
were all murdered in cold blood, for money,
with the exception of three children, the oldest
a little girl eight years old, and one an infant,
who was found sucking its mother's breast, 24
hours after she had been murdered. They were
murdered by four men from Lampasas county,
who professed to be out on a surveying expedi.
tion. They knew that those fashilies had money,
and they went disguised as Indians, thinking
that by murdering the whole families, none but
Indians would be suspected. The little girl,
however, recognized one of them, who had fre
queutly been at her father's house. She made
her escape into the field where her father was
ploughing, where she found him murdered. She
then went nobly to work with her little hands,
and completely covered him up with dirt, to
keep the buzzards off until she made her way -
to the nearest settlement, and gave the alarm.
The neighbors all then collected, and went in
pursuit, and finally trailed them to their homes
in Lampasas county, where they arrested them
after a desperate resistance by themselves. and
friends. The party were all men of property,
and respectably connected. The party having
them in charge passed through 'oyell county
last Wednesday, on their way with them to the
lace where the murders were committed, where
have no doubt they will lynch them. They
were securely bound, and guarded by about for
ty men. They expected that an attempt would
be made to rescue them; if so, they intend to
shoot the prisoners the first thing.
