Intimations of a Hasty Jaunt.
From Edgefield to any part of Oconee,
atias Pickeus, alias Pendleton, theroute,
by private conveyance, seems long
enough to make tho most inveterate/o</y
sigh for a Rail Road and it is rough
enougkto try. the patience of Job. ;Jf
people would only work their roads, the
' troubles of travel, in ? great measure,
would instantly vanish. Self-respect and
self-interest alike demand that we keep
our highways and byways in good order.
Who would buy laud in a section of
country, where roots, stumps, rocks, and
gullies are encountered at every turu of
the wheel? Stringent orders from the
County Commissioners to a prompt, ac
tive and determined overseer operate
like a charm in tho matter of working
the roads. This has been demonstrated
with the most satisfactory results in
many neighborhoods. The Road Law,
I believe, is good enough, let it be wisely
and firmly enforced.
From sweet May until gloomy Novem
ber, the condition of tho crops forms a
universal topic of conversation. None
may ignoro this ail-important subject.
In driving ovor a hundred miles across
tho .'cotton belt," I saw some beautiful
lunns, and I talked with many a thought
ful plauter. Everybody sees now that
au average yield of the tleecy staple is
out ol' the question in South Carolina.
Au area equal to thc extra acreage planted
was given up, to tho weeds and grass un
account of tho excessive rains in the
spring. The balance ol' tho cotton crop
in consequence of the rust, the worm,
and the lack of proper tillage, will fall
short of the production realized iii former
The Great Air Line R ilroad, built
along thc base ol' tho mountains, con
necting Charlotte with Atlanta, has made
tlie wilderness and the solitary place clap
their hands for joy ! Vast sums ol'money
have been put in circulation, and every
industrious mau along the line has al"
ready got his share of it. A superabun
dance of tho finest water power, sur
rounded by extensive forests of valuable
timber, has beou suddenly brought to
t?e notice of the interposing capitalist.
Many a fertile and lovely valley, hereto
fore wrapped in profound seclusion, has
been opened up to the markets of the
world. A range of grand, old Mountains,
sanctified by tho very spirit of the beau
tiful, has been transferred, as it were, to
the temple doors ol' Fashion and Litera
A malignant typo of fever is prevail
ing in tho vicinity ol'both Pendleton and
Anderson. The disease, so unusual in
those localities, had its origin in some
rice fields hard by, which had boen
flooded at intervals during the " heated
term." Oilier parts of Anderson Dis
trict, remarkable heretofore for health,
havo been plagued this year with chills
and fever. Too much cotton, some say ;
others, who seem to chop the better logie,
account for this sad reverse, by pointing
to the creek and branch bottoms all sob
bed, and overgrown with the rankest
forms of vegetation for the want of prop
er drainage. Abbeville too, in some of
her most healthy sections of ridge coun
try, has been invaded by the miasm of
the swamps. .As one of the most salu
brious climes in ' the world, Walhalla
and its surroundings still maintain their
proud pre eminence.
One of the most desirable sections of
the "Palmetto 8tate," including the
whole of Oconee and a portion of An
derson District, is situated between the
Tugaloo and the Seneca. The inhabitants
of this rich and pleasant country are
making arrangements to become an in
tegral part of Georgia by the process of
annexation / Liberal subscriptions in
money have been obtained to. defray the
expenses of. transfer. " The Governor's
brother-in-law, who is a lawyer, has un -

At about half past -i o'clock, yesterd:
morning, thc steamer M. S. Allison arri
cd in the city from Edisto, having on boa
about 200 negroes from the island. Th<
were landed on the wharf and taken
chargo by some of the deputies or rullyi-i
and at once set about the business fi
which they were imported. They yob
early and often. Captain Toglio, the con

that she had brought about 200j uegroo;

will bc well for her, in future, to seek hei

whom her owners have helped to elect.
On Tuesday, the streets swarmed wit!
colored men from the neighboring islands
who had been brought to the city, ir
small boats and otherwise, to participate
in thc election. Those immigrants walkec
the public ways, with the rations of bread
and bacon, which had been, issued tc
them, in their bands, .some ol." them com
menting on the shortness of the supply.
Ex-Sheriff Mackey's house, in King street,
near Broad, was a great hostelry, and waa
crowded all day with those who had been
imported for the work. There were other
places, besides Mr. Mackey's, which shel
tered illegal voters, who had been inspired
with the idea that they, in doing what
they did, were discharging a sacred obliga
tion to the party.
Tue arrests made during the day num
bered about thirty, and were principally
for violations of the election law. There
were some arrests for breaches of the
peace, and, in one or two cases, for draw
ing pistols.' Most of V the arrests were
made by the deputy sheriffs, the majority
of whom had never before been invest?!
with authority such as they exerci-*d yes
terday. Had they been experienced offi
cers, the ' majority of the' arrests would
not have been made.
Lieut. Heidt was assaulted, very early
in the morning near the .race course, by" a
party of colored Radicals, who pulled him
from his horse and beat him in the most
unmerciful- manner.? They pushed 'his
head into the dirt,, and kicked him and
struck him over the back until ho was
badly bruised. The cause of the assault
was doubtless .his. vigilaucc in ascertaining

of Ward 7 was 652. This year it is far
greater. The vote of Ward 8, in 1871,
was 1,210; this year, thanks to the new
poll, it is 1,801. Very few split tickets
seem to have, been voted. The Conserva

Negro Rule In Alabama.
The Montgomery (Ala.) Advertiser,
edited by a son of cx-President Tyler,
gives the following sad account of the
condition of that negro-ridden State, and
shows the necessity for a white man's
government and a white man's party, to
avert from both races the evils that all
must suffer who are totally disqualified
to discharge the important duties of]
rulers. Tho Advertiser says:
"The white man's government party
has become an imperative necessity ! it
is now eight years since the war, and
Alabama is poorer to-day than eight
years ago in despite of all her labor,
sacrifice and suffering; Apparently, in
present results^she has produced noth
ing for eight yTars, instead of billions in
money. Every year in moral and social
virtues she is sinking lower and lower.
It is time the.-negro rule, under Radical
teachings, should end, or in a few years
there will be little left to admmister
upon. The friends of a white man's
government wish, and intend if they
can, to stop this material waste and moral
corruption. They do not wish and can
not if they would, deprive a single negro
of a single right, and the wicked white
and negro papers and politicians know it
well. But we are resolved if po.ssible.to
saveourselves, and the negroes too, from
tlie gravest evils. The question is not of
freedom or rights of any -sort. It is,
shall a white man's government or a ne
gro government prevail in Alabama?"
One of the most distressing accidents
we have ever recorded took place on Sun
day morning last, resulting in the death
of Mr. George W. Davis, a young man
about 22 years of age, who resided six or
seven miles west of this place. It seems
that he borrowed his father's double-bar
relled gun a few days before, and had dis
covered that one of the locks -.vas out of |
order. Anxious to apprise the family of
the condition of the gun, and to prevent
any accident that might be occasioned
thereby, hs sought the m-st opportunity,

SALE OF BONDS.-The sale o? bonds,
deposited by the Andes Insurance Com
pany, of Cincinnati, Ohio, was made yes
terday, by D. C. Peixotto <ii Sons, auc
tioneers. The company is said to have
owed about $S,000 for insurance in this
."?tate, and these bonds were advertised for
sale by order of the court, to indemnify
the losers, the company having become
insolvent, and several judgments having
been obtained against them. There1 was
considerably inquiry concerning the bonds
before the s-.de, but it was not very gene
rally attended. The bonds consisted of
eighteen one thousand dollar conversion
bonds, and foot five hundred dollar bonds,
issued for thc redemption of the billi ol
tile Bank of tho Stair. The whole lot
was put np ut once, and the bidding was
started at live cent- oh thc dollar. The
interest amounts to twelve dollars per

A suit, under thc so-called Civil Rights
law, was decided in Yonkers, New York,
on the Srd inst Oil Saturday allegro,
named William Jackson, brought sui:
before Justice Baird, in the City Court,
against Josephine Lewis, keener of an
ice-cream saloon, to recover ?500 dam
ages by reason of the defendant's refusal
to soil plaintiff and other friends ico
cream; on the evening of August ll
Ralph E. Prime, counsellor Mrs.'Lewis,
argued at some length that the defend
ant's saloon was not a vehicle of common
carriage, or a licensed theatre, or publh
place o? amusement, a common school,
or institution of learning, a place for the
interment nf dead bodies, or a hotel or
tavern, or in any way coming within the
construction of tho Civil Rights bill
John W. Graham, counsel for plaintiff,
argued that the saloon came within the
meaning of an hotel or tavern. Judge
Baird gave judgment for the defendant,
dismissing tho case with costs, and uig
ger Jackson and bis lady friends left the
court-room in disgust.
The Walterboro' News (Republican)
thinks thatasalargoamountof tho State
debt was illegally contracted, it would
be unjust for the people lo bo taxed to
pay the full face of the bonds, and urges
the General Assembly to agree upon
some equitable compromise with tho
creditors of the State whereby the debt
of tho Suito can bo fairly adjusted.
I would not give much for your re
ligion unless it can be seen. Lamps do
not talk, but they do shino. A light
house sounds no drum, it beats no gong,
and yet, far over the waters, its friendly
spark is- seen by the mariner. So let
your action shiiicout your religion. Let
tho main sermon of your life be illustra
ted by your coudiict, and it shall not fail
to bo illustrious.

%??r The St. Louis Republican, of the

affair which took place near Kingsbury,
Mo., some days ago. It uppears that a
young girl, whose name is not given,
living near the town named, was discov
ers i by her parents to be enciente. A
few days after the discovery they took
their daughter to a corn held near the
house and forced from her a living child.
They then threw the babe into a shallow
hole in tho ground and deliberately
stamped it to death, so frightfully mang
ling it that when they coniploted their
hellish work it was difficult to distin
guish the lloxh and bono from mud and
clay. Tlie parents were arrested.

Till; HOME IN THE MEADOW.
It stands in a lonely meadow,
The house so mossy and brown,
With its sombrons old stone chimneys
Aud ?Ls gray roof sloping down;
The trees fold their green armsaround it
The trees a century old
And the winds go chantingthrough them,
And ibo .sunbeams drop choir gold.
The cowslips spring in the marshes,
And Un; roses bloom on the hill;
And beside the brooks in tho pastures
The herds go feeding at will ;
Within thc wide old kitchen,
Tho folks sit lhere in the sun
Which creeps through tho sheltering
When the day is almost done. ?
The children have gone and left thom,
They sit in tho sun alone;
And the old wife's ears are failing
And she harks to tho well-known tone
That won her heart in girlhood,
That has soothed her many a caro,
And praises lier NOW for tho brightness
Her old face USED to wear.
She thinks again of her bridal,
When dressod in her robes of white,
As sbo stood by her gay young lover
In the morning's rosy light.
Oh! tho morning is ros2'as over,
But the rose from her cheek has fled,
And the sunshinr-still is golden
But it falls on a silvered head.
They sat in peace in the sunshine
Till the day was almost done:
And then, at its close, an Angel
Stole o'er tho threshold stone.
Ho folded their hands together.
Ho touched their eyolid? with balm :
Ana their last breath floated onward
Like the close of a solemn psalm.
But the shapes they loft behind them,
The wrinkles and silver hair,
Made holy to us by kisses
Tho Angels have printed there;
We'll hide away'neath the willows
When the day is low in the West,
Whore the sunbeams cannot find them
Nor the winds disturb their rest.
Perhaps in that miracle Country
They will giye their loRt yoiith back ;
And tho vanished flowers of spring time
Will bloom in the spirit's track,
But we'll suffer no tell-tale tombstone,
