We went one day last week to try the
new Baptist orga^; It is of the Melodeon
family, and very . good. In tono, it is
quite sufficient fpr the building ; and in
touch,- it ls most excellent. In fact the
touch and action aro so good that one can
play sky-rockets upon it almost as easily
as upon the piano. It strikes us, how
ever, that the price given for it was# abso
The crape trees this season surpass all ?
they have ever heretofore done. Those
in the front yard of W. W. Adams, Esq.,
are the most beautiful we have ever be
held. They look as if fifty million wagon
loads of watermelon meat -had been
thrown upon their tops.
The Sabre Club meets for its first pa
rade and drill, on Saturday next. Knights
to the front! Maidens, prepare your
heads for the crown !
Grand Lecturer B. Rush Campbell, of
the Masonic fraternity, is present in our J
town, and the Masons seer < to be* having J
quite a time cfit. If we mistake not,
they hold meetings in the forenoon, in
the afternoon, and at night, and the work
of the Chapter is being exemplified to the
Companions, -and several have received j
the Chapter degrees. Col. Campbell is a
bright and shining light in Masonry, and
is in high esteem w"th his brethern of ?
the mystic tie in Edgefield.
And speaking of the Masons reminds
us of tho fact that the new-fangled Radi
cal society of United Brethren, now hold
their meetings in the former rooms of j
the Odd Fellows, in the third story of the
Masonic building-just opposite the Ma
sonic rooms. Verily this is a meeting of |
extreme*-a society on one side of the; j
passage, founded by Adam almost ; and
one on the other side, founded by Prince
Rivers. Bah! "what fellowship hath
Christ with Belial?"
And apropos of watermelons, what a feast
of them we are having ! And how fear
ful they are in sise ! And how inimitable
in flavor ! The Fine House region is, be
yond all cav il, the finest in the world for
watermelons. And peaches likewise,
although the finest are not yet ripe. And
as to okra, tomato, cabbage, green corn,
and Lima beans, the rains have caused
them tobe-magnificent in quantity and
quality. Indeed we do not remember a
season when the fruits of the earth were
in fuller hey-day. And thank God for it !
Our young friend, Mr. James Bonham,
son of Ex-Go v. Bonham, is just back
from the Military Institution at Lexing
ton, Va. And our. young friend Mr.
Ben. Bettis, Jr., son of tho veteran of |
the Fine. House, has recently arrived
from the Washington and Lee College,
of the same place. We have not had thc
pleasure, however, .of shaking either of j
these young gentlemen by, the hand.
We would be delighted if they would
step in, and; as the old-time people say,
tell us " their explites."
One of our sweethearts' (their hame is
legion !) has sent us a jug of sweet cider.
Think of a nice girl who plays on tLe
piano like Rubinstein and sends a poor
old editor sweet cider!- We drank until
we ' become quite jig-joggy. Perhaps
some people will imagine we are so now.
We would like another jug.
There will be no service in the Episco
pal Church on Sunday next. The Hov.
Mr. Walker goes to the Sand Hills of j
Augusta to preach for the Rev. Mnweed,

The Baptist colored women have had
pnother Hot Slipper for the benefit of |

Some cake sent us from it by our friend,
Margaret Lowe, was fit for a queen. Bet

Mr. Barney Ballent*:*3.aid others, now
in our jail, seem to be filled ever and

woe it lightens our burden.
The loafers haye found ont a bran new
loafing place. We see them th?s after

A young former, who is making his
mark, Mr. U. Brooks, sends us a stalk of |
cotton-a wide-spreading cotton tree !
with 160 bolls and squares upon it. And
Tom Jones, a colored tenant of the same
gentleman, sends, us a stalk of corn that
would positively reach upto the heavens ;
that if?, it is 15 feet high, and bas several
very fine ears. Three cheers for Turkey
Mr. Walter Reynolds, living two miles' |
West of this town, sends us a Collard
whrcb is an actual roof tree-at all events
an umbrella !-H} feet in circumference, j
And Mr. Ben Hatcher, who of all the
farmers and fruit-growers, is the most j
constant and profuse to the Advertiser,
sends us three Watermelons, weighing,
from 32 to 40 lbs.-more delicious than
was manna in the wilderness to the hun
gry Jew !
And last, but not least-on the contrary,
largest and longest !-Mr. Sam' Marsh,
the Harry Bassett of the Watermelon
world, sends us a fearful and beautiful
monster weighing 42 lbs.
Verily we faro well at your hands,
kind friends! ?

?SfX colored orator at the Radical
me?t?ng in the 'vicinity of Moore's, oh
S&tn?f?Y last? ff went .for" the "scala
wags'' with gloves off, and said "When
I see aCarolina white man making believe
he is a Republican, I knows right straight
that he is a lying hypocrite, and only
wants to fool us colored men, and cajole
us to vote for him, and put him into of?
fice. In slavery Bm es I always did des
pise low down " buckra men," and now
whenever I sec one of these honeyed
tongue; hdtae-raised white folks, stalk
ing around as a Republican, I always
think Of them " poor biickras" of slave
ry times,-and I aint got no usc for 'om,
now, henceforth and forever."
That fellow's head is " mighty level,"
and has an eminently correct apprecia
tion of the true status of thc so-called
South Carolina Republican, when he
classes him with anything that -he con
ceives vile and contemptible.

The Kn Kl ax War on Edge field Men.
. From the Columbia Phoenix, of Fri
day, we gather the following in reference
to the late Federal arrests in the upper
portion of Edgefield :
"United States Commissioner Boozer
had before him on Thursday the follow
ing citizens or Ed ?erleid, arrested under
the co called Ku-Klux act: Thomas W.
Blease, Dr. W. B. King, George Turner,
Williani Terry. J. O. Hamilton, R. S.
Towles, J. L. Terry, James P. Merchant,
Mack Smith, Sumter Turner, Jesse Bid
dle, D. A. J.-Bell, Wm. Wheeler. The
Srisoners were represented by Major
ames M. Baxter, of Newberry, and
Maj. W. T. Gary, of Edgefield. Waiv
ing an examination, they were bailed in
the sum of three thousand dollars each,
to appear at the special term of the Uni
ted States Court, which convenes in Co
lumbia on the first Monday in August
They were confined in the 'jail at' New
berry on Wednesday night. This was
particularly galling to at least one of
them, ~Mio was for four years a Confede
rate soldier, and bad never seen the .in
side of a guardhouse. Tho charge against I
them is a violation of the enforcement
?ct, on the 31st of December, 1870-near
ly two years ago-the actual crime, as is
asserted, being the riding on a rail of a j
disorderly colored man. Commissioner J
Boozer, we are assured, acted promptly
and consistently in the matter. The
Srisoners are under obligations to Mr.
I R. Franklin for courtesies. It is un
derstood that Judge Rives will occupy
the bench with Judge Bryan during the
. pending trials."
The Phoenix is mistaken in saying that
the cause of tho arrest was the rid ng on
a rail of a disorderly "colored mon."
The party ridden on a rail was'one Heck
Harris, white-an extremely miserable
and vicious renegade, whose unprovoked
vileness BEFORE and active- malice since
the deed (October 1870)-helped oh by
the unprovoked vileness and active mal
ice of others of his ilk-have led to these
arrests. White men in South Carolina,
when they take up with the Radical par
ty, and fraternize with the negro asa
; o?an and brother, ' straightway fair to ha
ting ali other white people who will not
do likewise. They feel that they have
degraded themselves, and their children
and grand-children after them, unfath
omably and irredeemably ; they secret
ly hate themselves; and their intense,
revengeful and unreasoning bitterness
to their former friends and equals, knows
no pity, no bounds.
And this very thing it is-aided and
stimulated largely, by the State and na
tional administrations, for party ends
which has caused the arrest, persecution
and imprisonment of so many good and
true citizens of South Carolina.
Our fellow-citizens above-named, are
good and trno men-true to their State
and true to their race-and God grant
them a safe deliverance from the suborned
witnesses .and packed juries to whose
tender mercies they will soon be exposed.

THE Undersigned having established his office at Edgefield, as General
Agent for the Cotton States Uifc Insurance Company,
invites attention to one or two of the advantages' offered those who may
desire to effect insurance on'their lives in a safe. Home Company :
The Board of Managers at a recent meeting passed unanimously the fol
lowirg Resolution :
" Resolved, That in view of the fact that there are unusually large sums
paid -for Life Insurance, to the Companies of the North and East, which
sums, being there invested, contribute to the enrichment of those sections,
whilst our own South is greatly in neel 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
portion of the net cash receipts from premiums, amounting to not more inan
70 per cent, of the same be invested m such manner as may be in accord
ance with the regulations of th? Company, in those sections from which the
said premiums are attained."
(Signed) WM. B. JOHNSON, Pres't.
GEORG? S. O'BEAE, Sec'ry.
In accordance with the above Resolution a Board of Advisory Trustees
has been regularly organized at Edgefield C. H., S. C., with the following
Officers, viz :
Maj. W. T. GABY, President.
Capt. B. C. BBYAIT, Vice President." . ,
R. 0. SAMS, Esq., Secretary.
This ?oard is now prepared to transact business, and invest the funds of.
the Company agreeable to the prescribed regulations,
j The Financial strength of the Company places it in high rank. Its last
Annual Statement shows that the Company possess, besides its large Guar

AT THE COMMENCEMENT OF THE SECOND YEAR we offer our
thanks for the cordial and gratifying marke 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 foll line of GENTS' FURNISHING GOODS.
Thanking you for past favors, we hope you will continue to favor us with
Yours, most respectfully,
