Tho L) posit (X. V.) Cuiii'k-r is resp*
ble for the following marvelous stu.-y :
lu the vicinity of Spoon river in Illir
's a cbiid that was boin and bus lived
yean without a bead. Mrs.-, the tn
tr, i* the widow ol' a soldier, formerly iii
lu Marshall county, who enlisted in the
ty flub er Scotch regiment, and was killet
the battle ol' Lexington, Missouri. She
studding beside ber husband during an
gugement, when a cannon ball carried
bead completely away, his budy fulling
her arms aud covering ber with blood. c
shock alketed ber greutly. When ber 1
was bom there was not the^nibJatiee <
head aboul it. The limbs aBBperleotly
veloped, and tba shoulders wR tbe h
and neck should be are smoothly rounded
But the most surprising thing of all is t
tbe lace is situated iu the breast. Of cou
there being no neck, the po-wcr ol' turning
head is wanting, except as the whole bod
moved ; but this dilliculty is overcome by
singular faculty it possesses of turning
eyes in their sockets, enabling it to sec qt
as well on either side as those more perlec
framed. The upper poitiou of its body
white as the purest Caudsian ; from
waist downward is blood red. This strai
creature, now an active boy of live years c
as if to compensate for bis deformity, posses
thc most clear atid bird like tunes ever
ter.cd to, singing with singular correclu
everything it may bear, and its voice at t
early age accomplishes two octaves easily.
Ax Ei'isoDK.-A few cveniugs SIDCO :
usual quiet which prevails iiear the juncti
of St. Anne and Peters streets, was fearfu
disturbed by the frantic Wallings of a won
uvidenlly in distress. The cries prccecc
from a second story roj:i, fronting on a o

diately rushed to me place. Ascending b
lily a flight ol'steps, they knocked loudly
admittance at thc first door, lt was secu
ly locked, how ver, and no attempt was mt
by the inmates to undo the fastenings. T
cries continuing, the door was burst op
and the men sprang into the room, lien
sight n.e. their eyes which even their bea
were in lido to contemplate with indifleren
The room was inhabited by an organ grinc
and bis spouse. The woman was scated
a low chair, bugging frantically to her bose
a sick monkey ; and her husband, ou bis kne
was besieging every saint in the calendar
spare the expiring animal's life. The fiat h
gone forth, however, a:;d even as they i
?lortuned, the unhappy monkey became d

The New Orleans Crescent of thc 13th insta
says : " Thc famous duelling ground on t
Mctaire ridge, known as The Oaks, was tho scei
yesterday morning of a sanguinary duol betwe
two young tuen of this city, which bas rarely h
its parallel in tho annals of the code either
this country or in Kurope. Tho antagonists if)]
the one ? native Creole of New Orleans, the oth
a Frenchman by birth; thc provocation a blow
thc face, at the hand of tho Creole; thc weapo:
wera broad-swords ; the hour daybreak. Arm
on ibe Celd, accompanied by their seconds, tl
combatants stripped to the waist, and sword
band, in tho freeling air of thc morning, sprui
at each other like tigers. There was no hesit
lion or playing to try each other's skill. A fi
lunges and cuts were successfully parried ; win
suddenly an up cut from the Frenchman's >wo:
wounded his opponent in the right arro. Tl
riposte from the Creole laid open thc Froticbmir
lift cheek, laying tho inside open and exposit
his teeth. Nothing daunted, the wounded ni:
stepped back, had a handkerchief bound rout
his face und again put himself in attitude of c
fence. His lirst lunge penetrated the broast
bis antagonist, between thu rib and the skin, bi
it was made with tuch relentless foreo that
passed also through tho >.::" arm. An attciopt wi
made at this moment by tho seconds to itop tl
matter ut that point, but the man with tho bani
kerchief around bis jaws rushed at the second wi
was most anxious to settlo tho matter, sword i
hand, asseverating that naught should ijuiet h
unimosity except a cut across bis throat. Tl
battle was renewed and lasted untii the Creo
received eight wounds and thc other six-all si
vere and painful, but none, it is hoped, da^
rous, Doth ni?U displayed extraordinary coumg
animosity and endurance; and di ring tho coun
of the bloody eucountor neither was willing I
give up the contest until both bad to let the
hands fall helpless to their sides from loss i
blood and thc \ *in of their wounds. Tho partit
?ere carried home, aficr having their woune
dressed; and tho lgh tho Creole had two moi
wounds, his situation was more comfortable an
loss critical than that of h'n antagonist."

Communications for the Now Year.
Wo have on hand several original articles
well-written and interesting, the | nblication of
which wo wil' eommence in our next issue.
Tho Greenville papers contain tho an
nuuniemeut of thc death, on Monday 2lst, at thc
resideucc of bi. son ia that place, of tho Rev.
Basil Manly, Sr., D. D., iu bis seventieth year.
Dr. Manly was universally known throughout tho
Baptist denomination of the South, and had been
serving in tho ministry for over forty years.
A Gilled Agricultural Editor.
Our highly-esteemed cotcuiporary, tho Augusta
Chronicle it Sentinel, bas secured thc services of
P. J. BEHCKU ANS. Esq., owner of the famous and
beautiful model farm neur Augusta, os Agricul
tural Editor, und will bcrcuftor give prominence
to tho Agricultural Department. We consider any
journal most fortunate which can securo thc aid |
of sn accomplished a gentleman and so scientific'
au Agriculturalist; and we heattily^obnjpratulatc
tho Chronicle <fc Sentinel upon the brilliant pros
pects of its Agricultural Department under such
Thc Erection of Townships iu Edge?
Wo would call tho attention of tho people gen
erally to an important notice, in another column,
from the Board of County Commissioners. This
notice explains itself. It will be perceived that
three Electors are to be appointed tn each Town
ship, by the County Commissioners. We would,
therefore, advise the people of euch und every
Township to loso no time in nominating to said
Commissioners three of their most intelligent and
reliable citizens, as best fitted to receive such ap
pointment Thc election in each Township is to
take placo on ibo ISth day of January I SOU.
By instruction of the County Commissioners, we
sbaM next week, far the benefit of tho people at
largo, publish, in full, the " Act to organize
Townships, and to define their powers and privi
leges," and tho "Act to doGue the jurisdiction
and duties of County Commissioners."
This body, liko the worshipful Legislature of
South Carolina, is now enjoying a recess. They
dismissed on tho 21st inst, and will ro-assemble
on thc 4 th January. Many hills of national im
portance have leen introduced, and thc various
committees arc busy making arrangemants for
active work on re-assembling.
Thc cluims of Mcnnrd, the colored Representa
tive from Louisiana, have been referred to tho
Committee on Elections, which Committee have
given him oxtrcmely cold comfort concerning his
probable (or rather, improbable) admission to his
scat. Ile was elected to fill some unexpired term,
and his time will bo out on tho 3rd March next.
Of course ho will not bc allowed to tako his seat.
If the Radicals in Congress can exclude a North
ern white Congressman who has been elected by
a thousand majority, they can more easily reject
a Southern negro who has been olected iu a State
nuder military rule.
The improvement in Agricultural Tools within
thc last few yours, utmost passes belief. Wo ha\o
just got up from reading a descriptive catalogue
of Messrs. JOHN A Tnos. A. BONES, tho widely
known Hardware Dealers of Augusta; and, real
ly, wc cannot help wondering that our farmers
arc still so behind hand in availing themselves of |
the many admirable improvements described in
said catalogue. Among many implements highly
recommended, wc would incition Collins' Solid
Cast Steel Plows, aud a certain kind of new Har
row which revolves and goes ahead at tho same
time. Our farmers and planters would do woll to
consult our new advertisement from the Messrs.
A Negro Magistrate.

After tho beautiful ceremony of Constituting

We see nothing to prevent Hampton L?thje be

Officers, und a plenty of good and true men in its

however to lose no time in procuring a suitable
building for a Lodge Room, wbieh is now its

Happy New Year.
Onco nguin thu old year is drawing to a closo;
its labors uud anxieties, [ti hopes and disappoint
ments, its j'.ys und sorrows, are passing away,
und iu u lew more days it will exist only in tho
ree lleetions of the past. To how few will those
reelections be all of j >y ; to how many will they
bring much of sadness ? How many-will remem
ber some labor that bus proved fruitless, some
hope that has been blasted, sumo joy that has
been turned into sorrow '! How many, who com
menced the year cheerfully by tho love of a dear
friend, a beloved partner, or a darling child, will
over look buck to it with s.vdness for the void
which it b is left in their hearts?
But time, though it does Dot ulwuys cure for
row, enables us to cuduro it; and even sometimes
enables us to see that tho sacrifices of care, disap
pointment and sorrow, which it exacts from ns,
however at first they may be bitter to the heart,
in the oud are generally wholesome in their ope
rations 011 the spirit. Affliction, if it does not ul
wuys make us wiser, sometimes makes os bator
But God, in bis mercy to man, endowed him
with that elasticity of the spirit which we Cull
hope, without which, existence ia this world
would scarcely be endurable. From the grato of
every buried hopo si mc new one arises,' like the
fabled bird of old from tho ashes of its progeni
tor, and thus mun travels on his pilgrimage
through lifo ever hopiog to the last.
The dcuth of tho old year is a time for Wnp
serious reflections What is past, is past. Whit
tier disappointments or sorrows we shared darinji
its briet existence, may now be coniidoredSst
passed away with it ; and a New Year is ujM&jqT
with new hopes and new promises. The o?Bo?
ye ir may make up for tho fuiluros of thc pair',
and hopes may bc roalized, and pr.-mises fe ?1
which, hitherto, we have looked for in Viii2. Hut
while we look forward to tho future, lot us not for
got tho pust. If tho recollection of'our failures
and shortcomings doos not make, vs wiser, let
that of our errors, at least, tanke us better.
To tho old, over whose heads many years boy.e
passed, each New Year'sjDay satins to bring'them
one milc stonojmrJMvto' thjrgri^^eyond which
all of hopo 'that, npw.remains to them, extends, j
Tho remnant of lifo still left has little to offer
thea; nothing to promiso ; but, beyond, is a hope
greater than all oarth can give ; which tho good,
by God's mercy, may, but which the wicked never
But the young think not so seriously. Their
thoughts lie moro with tho immediate than the
distant future. To them tho New Year comes
full of hopo and promise. 'Tis morning with
them, tho air breathes fresh around them, their
skies are full of sunshine, and even thoir cloud,
are ge-ldon-hucd. They havo not yet loamed to
realize care, anxiety, caro, disappointment or sor
row ; and though of a surety all (hero will como,
long may it bc before they do ! To tho young,
then, with all our heart, we say Huppy New
Year! And to tho old we say tho same, because
it has brought them ncaror thc realization of that
blessed and ho,y hopo which tho Redeemer has
left as an inheritance to us all. >

tho United Stutcs. For a number ~of years there
has been no edition, we know of, published in
the South ; and to note now thc changes of those
years, as rendered in Geography, is matter both
of interest and profit.
Th? most vuluablo maps of thc day arc, with
out doubt, Lloyd's. Ihe one to which wc par
ticularly refer is Lloyd's Double Mnp of North
America and tho Southern States. Wc have late
ly received one from tho bands of an accommo
dating Agent, and wo now make our acknowl
edgement'! for so reu Hy valuable a present On
one side of this Map is to bo found North Ameri
ca in full ; on the reverso side, tho late Confede
rate Stutcs. And with tho Map, aro various ap
pliances-books, cords, pulleys-for suspending
und reversing it. The arrangement for reversing
thc Map is wonderfully cunning and effective.
Coucoruiug tho perfectness and uccuracy of this
Map, we have only to say that every Railway
Station i: laid down; and that in Kdgcficld Bes
tritt every country locality is properly named
and placed. And all that vast region betwoon
tho truns-Mississippi aud tho Pacific, which wo
remember oigbt years ago, as marked only hore
and tbcro with some lonoly river, some sterile
desert, or some mountain range, with no sign of
lifo save the nemo of some potty fort, or roving
tribo of sa vages, is here, on Lloyd's Mop, divided
by lawful metes and bounds, dotted with towns
und villages, marked and intersected by railroads
(especially the groat Pacific Railroad) and with
every here and thoro the domo of somu State
Capitol rising high in air.
Wo would honestly advise all persons who do
not wish to fall entirely behind the ugo os regards
.?he geography of the country in which they lite,
to buy one of Lloyd's Double Maps of North

.General Amnesty Proclamation by thc
WHEREAS, Tho President of tho United States
bas heretofore set forth several proclamations
offering amuosly and pardon to persons who hud
bean or were concerned in thc late rebellion
against the lawful authority of the Government
of tho Unitod Stutcs, which proclamations wc ie
severally issued on the Sth day of Dec. 1863, on
tho 26th day of March, IfM, on the 20th day of |
May, 1865, on the 7th day of Sept. 1867, and on
tb 3 4th dav of July in the present year :
And, whereas, tho authority of tho Federal
Government having boin ro-cs'ablis cd in all the
Stalos and Territories within tho jurisdiction of
th? United States, it is believed that such pru
dential reservations and exceptions as at the
d?: tes of said several proclamations wero deemed
necessary und proper, may now bo wisely and
ju-tly relinquished, and that an universal amnes
ty and pardon for participation in said rebellion
c:, "ended to all who have borne any part therein,
will tefld to socuro permanent peace, order and
prosperity throughout thc land, und to renew and
fully rcstoro confidence and fraternal feeling
among thc whole people, and their respect for and
attachment to tho National Government, dosiguod
by its patriotic founders for general good.
Now, therefore, be it known that I, Androw
Johnson, Prosidont of tho United States, by virtue
of tho po (vcr and authority in mo vested by the
Constitution, and in the name of the sovereign
people of thu United States, do hereby proclaim
arid declare, unconditionally and without reserva*
"ti in,, to all and to every person who, directly or
-indirectly, participated in the late insurrection or
rebellion, a full pardon and amnesty for the of
fense of treason against tho United Stator, or of
adhering to their encmios during tho lato civil
w ir, with restoration of all rights, privileges and
immunities under tho Constitution and the laws
vi ji?h have been made in pursuance thereof.
In testimony whereof I have signed these pres

Miss Bum hogs to say that she hopes to bc able
to placo education in roach of many wishing an
education, but, who, owing to tho distressed con
dition of th? country, hu ve not been able to go to
school and pay tho high rates askod every where
in the first class Schools. It is the duty of all
pi. rsons of intellectual culture, to give tone to the
sentiment and feelings of the community in which
they live, and awaken a spirit of inquiry for
leuning and refinement. Education is power; it
is wealth. It is a duty wc owe to society, to give
ail to enlighten its humblest members. Let us
of the South build up our own institutions, and
mike them an honor to tho Stute. With a united
co-operation, and a proper endowment of our
schools, we may hope that the machinery of edu
cation will movo on with regularity, accomplish
much good, and afford tho means of education tc
