;&0- Owing to the crowded stat., of our advor.

pelled to defer the publication of APrepo," and
other original articlea until the next Issue.

The Wheat Crops.
The accounts of the wheat crop, brought in by
candidates, are very cheering. Although the rust
has done some injury in a few localities, yet the
prespect, generally, is thought to be rather better
than It has been for some years past. This is
truly cause of rejoicing.
As the cry is pretty universal for corn, meal,
tour &c., we wish to tell everybody that an al un
dance of all these artiOles,.and of superior quality,
can be had at Mr. S. W. NeuoLrsoN's, nine mllet
above this place; and his prices are not such as t,
scare away customers. Neither are his terms
either tight or urgent. He proposes to sell 1000
bushels of corn out of what he has on hand, and
does not intend, war or no war, to ask more than
a dollar per bushel. So with his other commodi

elodutionary powers. We regret that the professor
happens amongst us at a time when several causes
combine to make his audiences smaller than touldi

terms by the press wherever he has been. Those
who have beard him here testify to the correctness
of the general opinion in regard to his merits as a
lecturer and portrayer of character.
PaitoFEsou RYAN lectured Monday night for the

They efected their self-deliverance by means of
a small surgical knife and a file with which they
cut the bare of a window until they could get out,
letting themselves down to the jail-yard by meant

our.jailor has offered a handsome reward for their
re-capture. The general expression seems to be
"let them go provided they will stay gons."

The Penadleton Messenger.
We regret to observe in the last number of this
very spiritod sheet the following :
."*With 'this issue closes the first and last volumne
of the Pendletom Jfeseunger. One year ago with
what we considered flatering prospects, we, with
fe.-ling of no ordinary embarrassment, donned the

"'Editorial harness." The week that our paper

weekly" railway first commenced its trips; we
thmen predicted a brilliant future for old Pendleton;
the prediction, we must acknowledge, was false,
for no place can expect to be brilliant in the future,
that cannot supp~ort one paper. Seven or eight
years ago the lamented Burt was compelled to sell
the paper for want of support; to-day we close for
the same reason, but it will ouly be for a short
time. We hope, under better auspices, to start the
publication under a new name, at the rising and
flourishing town of Hartwell, Georgia."
Found it Out.
By the kindness of Mrs...C. B., one of our moat
sueeessibl* foriculturists, weohave just found out
what that dladiolus is, about which we were in
quisitive some time ago. It is a magnificent flower
of the Lily family, as the splendid specimen be
fore us shows. A bunch of Irnmorrelles and a
sprig of Ponciana, beth rare and admirable plants,
accompanied the Gladiolus to our sanctum. We
are the more obliged to Mrs. B. for her remem
branee of us, as It discloses the name of a
choice lower in our own garden which we confess
not to have knowa before as the Gladiolus. But
ours is not so brilliant as Mrs. B's.
The Cape Jessaminea.
The present is the peculiar month of this queen

their display of beauty, the Cape Jeasamine comes
.to enact its part in the D~rama of the Flowers.

The voice of the people of F oith Carolinsa appears
evidently to favor the establishment of a Peniten
tiary. We judge by the presentments of Grand
Juries and by the expre.esions of the Press. The
feeling is, that there Is a class of crimeiwhich go
half-punished if' not scott-free under our present
criminal system. Rather than hang for certain
high misdemeanors, our juries, thinking that de
gree of punishment a little too severe, prefer often
to turn loose upon the community characters of
the most vicious stamp. With a penitentiary,
this defect would Ie remedied, and a way he pro

Many charitable ladies of New York have com

appreciate a sentiment once given in this place at
a public dinner, by an individual of a peculiar

" The widow, the wife, and the maid: Bright

Mt. Willling--Thse Battalion Mhuster.
A pleasant drive of three hours the other morn
ing, Mr. Em'rron, brought me and my friend, M.
C. B., to Mt. Willing. This wus a place of some
importance many years ago; an active trade was
carried on there, and this was the chief pocint for
the bausiness of Saluda: eight hundred votes were
polled there, ad the names of some of our first
men arc intimately associated with its history.
Around it cluster some pleasing reminisences of
days gone by. It is now almost in ruins, and its
only attraction Is the Batalion Muster which occurs
there every Spring.
We attended the one which came off there on
Saturday, and were agreeably surprised at the
promaptness and precision with which the various
evolutions were performed. We have attended
many Battalion Musters In Richland and other
Districts, and are compelled to say, this was ue
of the best we have ever seen. Much credit is
due to both oeers and men. Col. Bavax Dxatx,

Louis Napoleon's Plan of Finance.
The advices by the Vigo show the plan that
Louis Napoleon has determined to adopt in
his financial policy, and it forms a strong
contrast to that of Austria, which we recently
exposed. He neither seiles the specie re
sorve of the bank, nor- issues irredeemable
paper, like Francis Joseph, nor do is he follow
the practice of England, and call the great
bankers to his side to aid him in raising
money. But he has determined to open a
natioual subscription to a loan of one hundred
millions of dollars. .This is the same plan
which he successfully pursued in 1855 for the
loans raised to prosecute the Crimean war.
At that time the bankers were greatly angered
at losing their customary commissions and
profits, and loudly prophesied that the new
stock had been taken by thousands of people
who could not carry it, and who would soon
have to throw it upon the market, th-e causing
a decline and ruining the creditof the Goveri..
ment. But nothing of the kind occurred; and
now we find the French Emperor adopting the
same plan upon a much larger so.de. Such
a step demonstrates his confidence in the
pecuniary resources of France, and the policy
will no have small political effect on the pros.
pects of the Napoleonic dynasty. There is no
stauncher supporter of the throne or more
deponent enemy of revolution than the holder
of government stocks, The very debts of the
nation are converted into bulwarks of order,
as is the case in England. In creating a
large public debt, held in smill sums among
the minor capitalists, Lxuis Napoleon will
erect a strong defence of~ his throne, so long
as he does not go bntyond the ability of France
to par theinterest withou~t oppressive taxation.
The high war feve~r that now has possession of
the French people will no doubt lead them to
take the loan with th~e same avidlity that they
did that for the war in the Crimea.-New

THE McKEZxxA WuIL.--We promised t<
keep our readers a~dvi.ed of the progress a1
affairs as respects this will, and it seems that
matters have arrived st a point that wil:
justify us in mnakinag another report. W<
stated that the Ordinary hiad.receiired notici
from, Mr.. Mittag that she required the will
to be proved in sokam~i form, which notie,
has sinace been endeorwd by her husband, Dr
J. F. G Mit tag. The Ordinary then, as ii
usual in such cases, gave the qualified execu
tors notice to prefer~ their petition to hinm tc
prove the said will in due formz of law. The
executors a ppeal froma this requisition of the
Ordinary, on the ground that there is nce
proof b~efore him that the parties requiring
the will to be proved in solemn form a
competent to give such notice-in other words,
that the said parties would have been inter
ested mo the e.,tate had the c~eceased died in
testate. This appeal from the Oa dinary will
go to the Court of Common Pleas, whicl
does not sit here until October. The mattel
does not rest here, however, for the Ordinary,
in the face of the notice of appeal fiomi the
executors, las summoned all the parties be.
fore him on Monday, the 18th July next, te
p roceed to prove the will in solemn form.
How these cross notices and exceptions are
to be reconciled, we must be content to re
gard for the present as one of the uncertain
ties of the future.-LancasterLedger.

fact that he is selling Goods as LOW as they can
possibly be afforded this side of New York.
