The Cheap Cash Store at Johnston's.
This is Mr. George J. Tolley's; and if
the publie will^ead vkis very interesting
and explicit new card in another col um r.,
they w?l see that He ha? a vast variety of
goods to offer them "cheap for cash."
Mr. Toney after his long experience in
different mercantile lines-and especial
ly after his late valuable experience in
the great establishment of the Richards
Bros., Angust?-ought certainly to know,
(and does) how to conduct the business
wisely and well-as well for his patrons
as for himself.
"Say, My Heart, Can This Be Love!?

A Heavy Loss by Fire.
Abou? noon on Thursday last the dwel
ling ol Rev. David Harris, a hard-work
ing and thrifty colored citizen of this
town, caught on fire from a spark from
the chimney, and the bnijding being cid
and very dry was quickly consumed. In
fact, the flames advanced so rapidly that*
it was impossible to save but a trifle of
his furniture, provfekms, <fccl; and we
are informed that the family lost all of
their wearing apparel-not a single gar
ment being saved.
As soon as the alarm was given every
body, white and colored, rushed to the
scene of conflagration, and all worked
with a will to save the adjoining build
ings, which they finally, after a hard
fight, succeeded in doing.? We were
pleased on this occasion to see the honest
exertions of many white people present
to save 'the property of this colored man ;
and some of them, and among the num
ber we noticed Messrs. Ben. Rambo,
Glover Tompkins, Johnnie Harrison,
Jerry Gardner, Frank Sandland, Ben.
Covar, and others, who even outstripped
the colored people in.the contest with the
fiery element. This is as it should be
and ever let this spirit abide with us, for
under similar circumstances we are all,
without regard to color, certainly de
pendent upon each other.
Harris' loss is estimated at over $2,000.
And a colored widowed woman living in
the same house also lost everything she
had-clothing, furniture, &c.
We understand that a subscription list
is in circulation to aid the distressed, and
are glad to hear that maur have respond
ed with a liberal hand.
A Most Alluring and Seductive Panic J
In another column, Wright, Landram

what it is, but if there Ls any sort of
panic where Mr. Jas. M. Anderson is

turn out a delightful and advantageous
one for Edgefield people. Of course our
people know that Mr. Anderson is the

of Dry Goods, with all the old D. R.
Wright prestige around it. Read the

The Riuc Ridge Scrip Finally
On Friday last the .Supreme Court of
South Carolina filed its'decision iii the
Blue Ridge Scrip case.- The opinion wan
framed by Chief Jiwtice Moses, and un
equivocally declares the scrip illegal, as
being in violation of the provision of the
Jj. S. Constitution which declares that no
State shall emit bills of ?r?$i, which, the
serip is prp^ouueed to be.

THE PATRONS OF HUSBANDRY AT MEET
At " Dr. Clint's," an upper story is be

This Grange is the largest and most en

to be, considering that Clint is the Big

the numerous other enormous good

while he lived, went to tho Baptists, and

Business in Our Town this Spring.
Business in our town seems to have
opeued this spring with a perfect vim.
And cirta;nly our merchants seem to be
fully prepared for it in the way of large
and elegant stocks of ^oods of all kinds
for the spring and summer trade. Take
the dry-goods shopping for instance.
Never since the close of the war have
we seen the ladies of our town and the
8urrounging country buying their dry
goods, and even millinery, so exclusively
at hoine as this spring. For a long time
past it has been the custom to repair to
larger markets for the handsomer articles
of the toilette-the real high dress!-such
as silks, and' laces, and bonnets, and
hats, ic. But our young merchants hav
ing clearly demonstrated to them this
spring that such troublesome and expen
sive trips were entirely unnecessary,
they seem now to be-how shall we express
itt-going the whole hog hove at home.
For thc last two weeks not a day has
passed., except Sundays, on which we

ladies of the surrounding country going

stocks are not only full, but they are el

find them more complete, moro reliable,
