"The Humaa Face Divine.''
Every face, the .homely no less than
the beautiful, is 11 divine'' to some one.
And of these divine faces (we combine
business -with sentiment) Mr. Robert
Minis will now take four for One Dol
lar. Four ferrotypes for One Dollar!
And they "are beautiful too. Dozens and
dozens o? persons are now daily availing
themselves of this fine opportunity to
secure good pictures of friernls and rela
tives. But-s?e Mr. Mims's new card in
A Landmark Gone.
Who remembers the day -when old
Toi. Frazier, the colored harness msJcer,
was not here? Toi. camein, we opine,
with the beginning of the century ; but
now he is gone to his long home. He
departed this life, bi the midst of kind
friends and relatives, on Sunday last
Peace be to his ashes !
Around and About Town.
. The weather is.so fine that all the talk
is about garden seeds, and manure, and
wheelbarrows; and such like things?
Sore is the perplexity (except with the
everlasting knowing ones) as regards the
best kind of Irish potatoes, and exhaus
tive is the weighing of the comparative
merits of different species of snap beans.
We bought our garden seeds yesterday,
and the proceeding cost us fearful pangs.
But how much more fearful will be the
pangs in dieted upon us by the colored
man, or men, who shall work the garden.
There are no more unfeeling tyrants rn
these bitter days than the men who make
your garden for. you-who come to you
at 9 in tho morning, and, resting six
hours at noon, leave you at 4 in the after
noon, and tell you all the time that you
know nothing about the matter, and that
they cannot do i< right if their system
is interfered with. God alone knows
what a cross these colored garden-ma;
kers arc to us ! And as to wheelbarrows,
Mr. Sams has lovely ones, and sells more
than ho eau order.
Court will assemble on Monday next,
and the term bids fair to be a long one
There is a press of business on hand,
for it must be remembered we have had
no grand jury since March 1871, and
even then a number of cases were con
tinued on account of absence of witness
es. If we mistake not there arc as many
as eight or ten criminal cases to come
before the Court. There are the six men
indicted for the shooting of the negro
girl at Granitevillo-tho girl who shot
Mr. Brewer's baby. And there is the
Blair case. And the ease of the negro
woman who poisoned her husband. And
the case of the old negro woman who
wrung ber grandchild's neck. And the
Flint and Sharpton ease. And-but it
does'nt matter to mention any more. As
regards thc Jury for thc coming Term,
it is all arranged according to law. Wc
have seen the lists and thc names upon
each ar? good ones. Upon the Grajjd"
Jury there arc 13 white and 5 colored
men. Of the Ort Petit Jurors 20 are white
and 16 colored. It is most earnestly to
be hoped that fhe citizens drawn upon
these Juries will be prompt in theft-at
tendance. It is a cinty all men owe thc
country-and especially now when the
course of justice has been donged and
delayed for a whole year. Judge Moitun
will preside us usual.
We have no internal Improvements in
our town to note, save thc rehabilitation
of tho old Frazier store, which is to In
occupied, on one side, Ly Mr. W. H.
Bronson, and on the other, by Dr San
ders. The latter is already mov?as into
it. Our merchant', will soon be ol?* for

Miss Mary Ann' Buie, the Confederate
Soldiers Friend, who is now a citizen of
Augusta, writes us and says "my'non
nense ended with 1871, :uid I am now
hard at work establishing in this city a
gigantic female institution to be called
the Stonewall Jackson Female College."
How happy a thing it must be to feel
able to announce that one's '* nonsense"
is ended! God help us all to emulate
Miss BuieN example ! ?
Ninety Partridges, Three Rabbits,
and sn Owl !
That sounds like thc caption of one of
Esop'-S fables. But there is no ?able about
the matter. It is simply the grand total
of a day's shooting-last Friday-by a
party of live gentlemen"of our town and
vicinity. Yes, they bagged 00 partridges,
ii rabbits and 1 owl. Our tw > handsome
friends-or at least they bear traces ot
former beauty, (how angry with us theil
wives will lw!)-Messrs J. A. I), une
O. F. C. wens tho heroes of thc party
But O F. was tho biggest hero. H<- 5rtg
ged ."7 birds, besides bel?g unable to lind
several seen to fall. J. A bagged 25.
Now considering that only 2s hirds, t
rabbits and 3 owl nrc left as thc trophies
of the other bree hunters, who care? V
hear their dishonored names? We and
ably refrain from holding them up to
public scorn It is whispered that oui

Confiscation is the Aim of .the Radi

? From the Unionville Times.
' .Taxea-W^axes ! Taxes! Nothing but
J Taxes. .The'- -people of the South have
done moro, - suffered more, submitted to
more indignity and corruption than we
ever supposed the)- could or would, in th?
Viinhope 'otrestoring peace and tran
quility. Policy, policy, has been the cl
ever since the war closed. "Don't op
pose the ruling powers," has been dinned
in our earn.so continually, that we begin
to think w? have no right to open our
motiths or-write in defence of our liber
ties, oiir person, or our property. Have
the Radical party determined to' force re
sistance to their oppressions and villanies?
It certainly appears so to us, for notwith
standing the appeals and complaints of
the taxfpayers against' the extravagance
of Oie State governments and the enor
mously high taxes levied, we find State
officials asking the Legislature to increase
the taxes from 10 nulls to 25J mills on the
dollar. IE the people were advancing in
prosperity under the heavy burden of?
taxes, or saw their money judiciously ap
propriated for the public good, we should
near no grumbling about heavy taxes,
but they are realizing the fact that'eveiy
succeeding year they are growing poorer,
while those into whose hands the. taxes
are paid are growing voluptuously rich,
arrogant and indecently exacting in their
It is our candid opinion that this can
not last much longer. The people have
become faint and tired of the load placed
upon their backs by. those who J have no
feeling for them or interest m their pros
perity,, and have-but little or none. of the
burden to cany.
There can be no doubt that the Federal
bayonets were placed in the South, not
merely to arrest Ku Klux and protect
"loyal" people in their rights, but to em
bolden unscrupulous partisan governments
in their acts ot' oppression upon the white
citizens o! the South, and aid them in "en
forcing any and every ' iniquitous demand
tiiey may see fit to make through their ig
norant and misguided tools in the Legis
lature. It is nothing more nor less than o
rod of intimidation, held over the peopl<,
and intended to strike them down if they
dare attempt to assert their rights in op
position to the pets of the party now in
power. Confiscation by taxation is prob
ably thc aim, but before that can be ac
complished wc feel confident a terrible
struggle will take place to prevent it.

I have used commercial fertilizers for
Heyend year?, and this year, with other
kind-, used thc Wando, giving it, I think
a lair trial. In my opinion, the Wando
gave more remunerative results than any
other kind used by me.

This is to certify that j have used the
Wando (4ur.no for two years with thc
happiest result-quantity applied 200 lbs.,
with 15 Bushels Cotton Seed per acre
with this manuring I increased thc viel J
of seed Cotton per aero about six hun

?made a bale per acre on twenty acres
with above manuring.

13DOEFIELD, 8. C., Dec. 30th, JS71.
This year I .planted eighty-five acres
in Cotton, poor land, and used three tons
of the Wando Guano. I made, packed
and sold forty-eight bales, weighing 400
pounds. Tho three tons were applied to
45 acres, which produced 31 bales For
ty acres, bettor land, was unnianured,
and tho result was only 17 bales. Tho
cheapness, and the intrinsic worth bf thc
Wando, places lt upon a nionied valua
tion. E. H. YOUNGBLOOD.
EDGEFIELD, S. C., Jafi.lOth, 1872.
I havo used tho Wando Fertilizer for
two years, and willingly testify as to its
merits. Taking into consideration its
cost, it paid me better, as an investment,
than Peruvian Guano, andiseqnal, if not
superior, to any fertilizer in tho market,
of which I have an v practical knowledge.

under the name of
COTTON FOOD I
Which they claim to be of the highest grade of Fertilizer sold in the South
and guaranteed to equal in its results Peruvian Guano, pound for pound
and to be of more permanent benefit to the soil.
It has been used by SEVERAL HUNDRED PLANT
ERS in North and South Carolina and Georgia for
two Seasons with the following result?:
It increases the crop from 100 to 200 per cent.
It resists drought in all cases. The crop is not affected by rust.
It matures the crop three to four weeks in advance, thus insuring the
crop against early frosts, or in the event of a backward season for planting
j enables the planter to put in his crop three or four weeks later, even as late ?
as the 1st June, with a certainty of success.
It produces a better quality of Cotton.
Looking at the low price of Cotton, the intelligent planter will readily
comprehend the necessity of using nothing but the highest grade of Ferti
lizers, ?nd of strictly avoiding those whose value has been reduced by adul
teration or the use of cheap materials under pretence of meeting the low
price of Cotton,
It' his rrop is only doubled by the use of "COTTON FOOD" it will give
him from one to two hundred per cent', profit on hie outlay, with Cotton' at
Yl\ cent- per pound, and it will enable him to plant fewer acres with a cor
responding redaction of labor .ind expense with better results.

44 I used three tons 4 Cotton Food,' manufactured Dy the Maryland Fertilizer Com
pany, of Baltimore, applying -00 lbs. to the acre. By the side of it I applied 2C0
lbs. Peruvian Guano to the aere."
"The Cotton manured with the 1 Cotton Food' grew off more promptly and vig
orously, and whilst I made no comparison of the results, Tam sure the preference
was in favor of the 'Cotton Food,' and so much am I impressed with this belief I
shall use it exclusively this year in preference to all others. Tho Cotton manured
with it was not affected like the others by the drouth, and matured three weeks
earlier. I also applied it in a small way on Corn with the most satisfactory results."
J. H. HOLLINGSWORTH, Edgcficld, 8. C., to GRAHAM & BUTLER, Augusta-.
"I ased 100 lbs. 'Cotton Food' to the acre, in the drill, on Mulatto Land, mixture
of sand, it increased the yield one hundred per cent. I used several other kinds
the year before and I decidedly prefor tho '.Cotton, Food,1 It gave perfect satisfac
tion, so much so that 1 shall use it entirely anoiiher year.
H. W. ADDISON, ta GRAHAM ?fc BUTLER, Augusta, Ga,
"I used 75 lbs. 'Cotton Food' in drills on light red land, which produced 13)1
pounds Seed Cotton to the acre. It compares favorably with thc best Fertilizers i?
the market. My crop was increased .about 50 per cent, and'gathered by 15th Nu
vembcr. I am well pleased with it."
J. L. ADDISON, Edgefleld, & C., to GRAHAM it BUTLER, August**, 6Vf.
"Xu'sod about 266 lbs. 'Cotton Food' per acre, one-half in thc drill at time of
planting and one-half in the first furrow, secoml plowing in June, on sandy land,
clay subsoil, very poor old field, a portion taken in last year and a portion this, ic
produced twelve bales on fifteen acres. It has paid bette* -than any Fertilizer I
havo ever used. Have been using Commercial Manures ll years. Do not think
the land without manure under best cireun\stanoefl would have producen! 5 bales,
Most of my Cotton was.gathered by thc a?Hi of October, and had no Yellow Cotton. '
I have talked with several of my neighbors, who amie witn mo in saying, there is
no better manuro for th? Cotton Plant. The ' Cotton Food ' has paid better than
Peroyia.n Guano previous to the war."
