That Dream Come True at Last.
You remember our dreant about our
. friend, Ben Mays, who kVes*down by
the angry waves of Horn's Creek-that
he sent us a very long and splendid thing,
we didn't exactly know what. Well, it
has come at last-the longest and most
splendid Watermelon that ever grew
this side of the Garden of Eden. We
had imagined that Ben's long thihg would
be a trophy of his gun, but it has turned
to be a trophy of his hoe. We are more
than satisfied ! .
The Episcopal Entertainment on Fri
day evening last, was, despite of sick
ness, postponement, and floods of rain,
an emphatic success-socially, artistical
ly and pecuniarily. Indeed had it-not
been for the rainy day and threatening
night, it is evident the Hall would have
been crowded to its utmost capacity. As
it was, the audience waslorge?and ele
gant. White dresses, summer flowers
and gay ly colored ribbons mingled in a
charming ensemble, and every one ap
peared good humored and willing tobe
pleased. The music was good, much of
it very fine indeed. Truth to say, finer
or mc e cultivated piano-playing would
be htt?d to come across in private life.
The plays were tastefully put upon the
stage, and, considering that amateurs
alone had them in hand, went decidedly
well. The evening was one of rare en
joyment to actors, musicians and audi
ence. And the ladies cleared Ope Hun
dred and Seventy-five Dollars. "All's
well that ends well."
The 96th aniversary of the glorious
Fourth passed off in Edgefield in pleas
ant and contemptuous silence. Som e of
our leading Radicals betook themselves,
we believe, to Aiken, some to Columbia,
some to a pow-wow at Henderson's
on Horn's Creek. A Radical pow-wow
on Horn's Creek ! What do we not live
to see in these days ? Let no one imag
ine however that Horn's Creek people '
ore turning Radicals. Ha, ha, ha! (as
they say in the plays) we could scarcely
conceive of anything more improbable
Senator Wigfall is an Edgefield man
though long gone away-therefore we
moke a local item of the fact that he has
written on able letter in support of Gree
ley. Hs lives now in Baltimore. When
Wigfall gives in, why need Bob. Toombs
to hold out any longer ?
To-day is Tuesday the 9th, and it Ijas
rained every day for eight days-and
heavily at that. ' And it is pouring in
torrents at this moment. And these
rains too, at least for three or four days
past, have been pretty general. Already
we have had enough to do for July. Com
and cotton hi our section are uncommon
ly beautiful. The gardens and pastures
ore renewed in greenness and strength.
Watermelons are abundant, and peaches
beginning to make a showing.
Even in the drought-ridden country
West of us, the rain has at lost come.
But, in many localities, too Me. Mr.
Mr. John Burns tells us this morning
that his cotton has only come up since
the late rains, and that he has ploughed
the land over and planted corn instead.
This extremity, however, is not the case
in a very large stretch of country.
Last Sunday was quite a Jubilee in the
Baptist Church-the first services since

They had every reason to feel so. And

organ we have heard but little. It has
rained so,, we have seen.no one. We
shall go and try it ourself, and then say
more about it.

Terrible Calamity to Edenfield People
in the West.
Some fifteen years ago, Henry M.
Quattlebum, Esq., of one of our most
respectable families, a brother of those
estimable citizens, still with us, Col. Wm.
and Capt. Peter Quattlebum, and of the
late Col. John Quattlebum, so long Tax
Collector of our District, moved from
Edgefield to the West. And very re
cently comes to us the fearful news of
the destruction of his home by fire, and
the perishing of himself and his daughter
in the flames. He lived near Pine Bluff,
Arkansas ; and on the night of the 29th
of June, his dwelling, a large two-story
building, was consumed by fire. Of his
six children, five were rescued from the
flames ; but a daughter of 14 years being
left bi the upper story, the unhappy
father went to seek her, and both per
ished. This is terrible and affecting!
Everything in the house fell a prey to
the devouring element. The widow and
five children are left alone. But not, it
would seem, without friends. On the
day of the funeral, the neighbors con
tributed among themselves $600, which
they handed to the unfortunate wife.
Truly God tempers the wind to the short)
An Edgefield Man in Aiken.
Our esteemed young friend, Dr. Han>
i met Teague, so deservedly beloved in
Edgefield, has been on a little summer
visit to his old home. Yes, Hammet
came and helped us with the Play. And
apropos, what a decided talent he has for
the stage. His "oldSwyzel" the other
night was in every respect worthy of the
real stage. We know of no one in pri
vate Ufe so gifted in this respect. But
our young friend can do more than play
in Plays. As a Dentist, be has made his
mark, vigorously and with extreme ra
pidity. We, are-glad to know that he is
doing well in Aiken, and have no doubt
the longer be is known there, the
more highly he will be appreciated.
The Five Great Feats of the Age.
Listen to them. They are edifying
and interesting. First, there is Gold
smith Maid, the famous'trotting mare,
who, a'fortnight ago,- trotted her mile in
the shortest time brion record. And then
there is Longfellow^ the Southern race
horse, who, the other day, beat the very
tail'off the- Norther*', favorite, Harry
Bassett. And then 'there is Madam?
Peschka-Leutner, the German prima
donna, who on the occasion of Horace
Greeley's visit to the Coliseum, ran up
a mile higher than any faro ale ever did
before. And then there v Stanley of the
N. Y. Herald, who, turning up his nose
at British stinginess and slowness, has
go pe and discovered Dr. Livingstone
straddling the equator. And last, ?rat
most important of aU-because-most use
fu'.-there, are S to vail ?'Hull, of Augus
ta, Ga., who have lately electrified the
whole earth (and-the* heavens above, and
the waters under the earth) with their
new Flour-" The Pride of Augusta."
Their first barrel they shipped to Cin
cinnati, where Gara eau, Hillard <fc Co.,
the greatest and grandest bakers in the
world, bought it for $250, made it into
crackers, and distributed the said crack
ers from ocean to ocean, and from pole
to pole, as samples of the very finest
Flour made by man.
.ind their second barrel they shipped
to the Advertiser. An extremely hand
some act ! And the Advertiser lifts its
hand, and solemnly afb rms that no such
Flour as Stovall <fc Hull's " Pride of Au
gusta" was ever made or tasted before.
**The Pride of Augusta," do they call it?
A better, name would be " The Pride of
. ".The Pride of Augusta."

An Edgefield Man in Americus, Ca.
We were pleased to meet the other day,
Mr: W. R. Dorn from South West Geor
gia, ason of our formerly popular fellow
citizen, Capt. James Dorn. Mr. Dorn is on
a visit to his friends and relatives in the
old land. He gives us a most gratifying
account of the status and success, . in
Am?ricns, of our old friend, Dr. Dan. P.
Holloway. Dan was always the soi? of
reliability. And as to Dentistry, why
should he not become eminent. Did he
not sit for years at the feet of Gamaliel?
And who is Gamaliel, pray, but that light
of the profession, Dr. Horace Parker?
However, the Dr. will not thank us, per
haps, for representing him as such a vet
eran as to have disciples scattered all
over South Carolina and Georgia. Well,
at any rate, they do honor to him and
his eminent teaching.
?Efr-An Edgefield correspondent of
the Columbia Unto*, over the surnature
of " Republican," thus alludes to Maj.
W. T. Gary and our Sabre Club :
On last Saturday a sabre club was
formed by the young men of our village
and vicinity. Major W. T. Gary was
unanimously elected President. It was
a compliment which the Major well de
served!, and from his well-known energy,
and the number of members already en
rolled, the ?ebro club of Edgefield bids
fair to rival any club already formed. It
is indeed refreshing to see the young
gents enrolling themselves in such num
ber:?, to perfect themselves in th? manly
?port of the sabre and horsemanship.
The Trial of the Murderer of Fisk.
The trial of Stokes is now going on in
New'York, and attracts universal atten
tion. It is conducted in quite a melo
dramatic manner, and the populace look
upon itas a grand show. Divers elegant,
stylish women (Mansfield among thom ;
appear upon the stand, giving much
spirit and zest to the entertainment. It
begins to appear that Stokes was forced
to shoot Fisk to keep Fisk from shooting
him. The probability seems to be that
Stokes will be aeocitied.

THE Undersigned having established his office at Edgefield, as General
Agent for' the Cotton St ?ate s Life Insurance Company,
invites attention to one or two of the advantages offered those wno may

The Board of Managers ata recent meeting passed unanimously the fol-'
lowing Resolution :
" Resolved, That in view of the fact that there are unusually large sumB

sums, being there invested, contribute to the enrichment of those sections,
whilst our own South is greatly in neei of cash capital to prosecute success
fully our Agricultural and Mechanical enterprizes ; it is ordered, that for
the purpose of retaining these sums in our midst, hereafter a certain pro
?or?on of the net cash receipts from premiums, amounting to not more than
0 per cent, of the same be invested in such manner as may be in accord
ance with the regulations of the Company, in those sections from which the
said premiums are attained."

AT THE COMMENCEMENT OF THE SECOND YEAR we offer our
thanks for the cordial and gratifying marks of encouragement and approval
which our first year's business has received. It was conceived and started
under the conviction that there was ample room in Augusta for a FIRST
CLASS MERCHANT TAILORING ESTABLISHMENT, and such a house
would receive the hearty endorsement of all who are wide awake to their
own interest. We found they were prompt to welcome the appearance of
such a house, devoted entirely to the business. We have earnestly labored
to meet their expectation, and we cordially state, as flattering as were our
hopes in the outset, success has, in all respects, far exceeded our expectation.
Also, on hand, a full line of GENTS' FURNISHING GOODS.
Thanking you for past favors, we hope you will continue to favor us with
