We have secured tho services of Mr.
ELIJAH KEKSE, well'known to tho peo
plo of Edgefield as a thoroughly reliable

On Sunday last, we departed for Ridge
S piing to'witness the baptism of many
old and valued friends, who have lately
joined the Church there ; but when
twelve miles upon our journey, discov
ered thai the "baptizing had been post
poned until the coming Sunday, ?and
that, owing to the session of a neighbor
ing Association, there would be no re
ligions services at all at Ridge Spring*
Being almost at the gatea of .one of the
most beautiful and hospitable homes
elong the Ridge-Capt. Clinton Ward's-,
we there sat up our rest for the day
' delightful andlnxnHo?srest it was!
and went with our host to see the glories
of the new Church at Span n's, and to
hear an excellent sermon from the Rev.
Wm., Thomas. This was the first ser
vice, if we mistake not, in the new
Church. -And " the . Congregation was
large, and evidently proud-and certain
ly most laudably so-of their model
house of worship. However, as the
dedication of this Church, is not to take j
place until the first Sunday in Novem
ber, we will postpone any further re
marks concerning it until after that oc
casion. Tho baptizing at Ridge Spring
-some twenty or twenty-five persons to
be immersed by the Rev. Mr. Pierson
is to take pince on Sunday next, between
12 and 1 o'clock.
Last Monday-Sale-day in October
tiougbt -out a considerable crowd of
our fellow citizens from the count ry, and
four or five of our business friends from
Augusta. Peoples' faces did not look as
. ? bright as we haye seen- them at this time
of year. The ' financial . panic was, of
course, the prevailing topic. From what
we gathered, those who owe money will
send forward more or less cotton ; those
who owe but little will be apt to keep
their cotton at home for the present.
The Medical Association held its last
meeting for the present year. Dr. W

Traveling along the Columbia Road a
day or two back, we were uncomfortably
impressed with the growing prevalence
of the worm in cotton. ? Half the fields
we saw seemed totally denuded of leaves.
Or is this worm the real thing?
Our friend Roady's (W. J.) cotton is
fine, and in some fields he expects to
make 700 lbs. of bay to the bale (of cot
ton) He let the hay remain in the cotton
because the rain ruined his fodder ! Vcr

were in town on Sale-day with a drove of |

of the day, our merchants were decidedly
and unreservedly down in the mooth.
Their sales and collections on this day,
as contrasted with past sale-days in Oc

not contemplate very serenely. Our
merchants are voung fellows and fine

Fell Among Thieves Who Stripped him
of his Raiment.
School Commissioner George Morgan
. goes from Edgefield to Columbia, and
falls among thieves who strip him of his
raiment. Commissioner Morgan who is
a fine-looking, polite colored man, sports
? afine watali, and dresses well, repairs
" 'tb the capital to attend a sort of conven
tion of his brother Commissioners. Upon
arriving- he goes straightway to Treasurer
Cardoso, who, although he has no money
on 'land.for School Commissioners, ob
liges him with a few dollars. He theil
meets his two colored friends, Col. John
Green and Nesbitt Perry, Esq . both o'.
distinguished Edgefield antecedents. iL'
accepts au invitation to sojourn at Mr.
Green's hotwe', and laying himself down
among friends and countrymen, shares
, Mr. P's bed.- At.break of day Commis
sioner Morgan hears Mr. Perry driving
a team in his sleep., He looks up, and,
discovering a window open near thc bedt
thinks it won id not be - unwise to see af
ter his watch. He looks, and rinds vest
and watch gone. He rises and thinks Uo
will draw on his pants and penetrate the
mystery. Panto gone ! Coat gone ! High
dress suit forever lost to hight i Eyes,
: -scarcely loft hi the Commissioner'? head !
He borrows a pair of pants from Mrs.
G. Whother they, were Mrs. G's own
pants or not is a qu?stion. However they
hide the Commissioner's nakedness and
lighten his blushes. But nothing doe-,
the Commissioner find. And again,
naked and humiliated, a victim of con
fidence in old friends, he repairs to the'
State Treasurer-and is again slightly
. "heeled" hy the same.
And now Commissioner Morgan is at
nonie again, with good clothes once more,
but cbagru^ad^wn^ to tile ground at his
inability totoB-hft -Winds the time of

Remarkably Worthy of Note.
During the past week, despite the
money panie? the large .humber pf men
women and children-especially ladies
and little ones-who have flpoked to Mr.
Manget's store, has been worthy of note.
Still more worthy of note however has
been the great and anani mous satisfac
tion expressed at the articles there ob
tained-at tho beautiful new goods, ai
the astoundingly low prices, . at the
charming behavior-'of-Mr. Manget and
Mr. Johnnie Bee. Were we in pursuit

given to the public by our young friend,
\ Mr. John J. Harrison (Johnnie) who has
set up a fine Grocery Store at Mr. Penn's
old stand, next door above Mr. Bryan's.
When Shakspeare, in Othello, gave the
world the same advice, there was no
financial panic in vogue ; times were
easy. Consequently Johnnie has hit the
nail more plum on the head than Shak

remember where to go to save money.
We are requested to state that the Rev.
Wm. Thomas will preach in the Metho

Barning of an Old Mansion in Ham
The old Stokes mansion, in a retired
part of Hamburg, near the river, was
consumed by fire on Monday afternoon
-with all its furniture and contents. It
was the home of the widow of the lato
Dr. Jeremiah Stokes, and of her grand
son, Mr. J. H. Thayer. An adjoining
house, occupied, but not owned, by Mr.
John Lyon, was also consumed. Mr.
Lyon saved bis furniture. We under
stand that Mrs. Stokes' loss is covered
by an insurance of $4 OOO.
A third house, adjoining Mr. Lyon's,
likewise fell a prey to the Hames. It was
valued at ?750.

A " Rebel'? Among the Wooden Nut
A young friend on a visit to friends in
Connecticut, sends us the following en
tertaining letter :
CONNECTICUT RI VKK YALLET, Mass.,
EDITOR ADVERTISKR,-Thinking a few
lines from this portion of the world may
prove of interest to your readers, I will
try to give an idea of what is going on.
The farmers aro all very busy getting
in their crops. The staple one is tobacco,
of which they are making quantities;
tho yield is from 1500 to ?SOO lbs per acre;
the price ranges from 15 to 23 cents per
lb. in the hand. Though tobacco is their
main cropAi may say that they raise al
most eveJ^hing except cotton.
Onions make a considerable crop with
these people, the yield being from 3 to
5 hundred bushels per acre. And I heard
? reliable man say that he had seen OOO
bushels gathered from an acre, the price
being from li to 12 dollars per bushel.
They realize from 4 to 7 hundred dollars
gross per acre, from nearly all the land
Farming land is worth from 100 to 400
dollars per acre. Tho farmers manure
very heavily, some of them putting as
much as 125 dollars worth of stable ma
nure to the acre. I paid a visit on yes
terday to the Green River works, the
great Table Cutlery Factory of J. Rus
sel tfc Co., and was introduced to the
president Mr. Chapman, who is always
on hand, and found him to be a very ac
oommoduting and courteous gentleman.
He took us through thc works and ex
plained everything in a very plain and
impressive manner, which he is fully
competent to do, as he has been connect
ed with the works for the last 35 years
The Company formerly manufactu' ?d
in Greenfield, but finding their water
power insufficient for their extensive
business, .they abandoned their buildings
there and removed to Turner's Falls on
the Connecticut River, where they have
a 700 horse power. They have "put up
two large brick buildings, each of which
is 600 feet in length, ono 60 and the other
i 35 in breadth ; besides which tficy have
about 200 feet of smaller buildings.
They generally employ fioo operatives,
! but have <?nly 450 at.this time.- They
employ a good many Trish and Germans.
Their business is immense, their usual
stock in finished goods being from three
to 4 hundred thousand dollars, bot the
-demand for their goods lately has been
so groat as.fco. reduce their stock to about
two hundred thousand. In short, J.
Russel & Co's. Cutlery Mann factory is
a perfect success, and persons dealing
with President Chapman, may feel sat
isfled that they aro dealing with an hon
The people here are both hospitable
and sociable, and seemed happy to ex
tend a hearty welcome even to a rebel
South Carolinian. Yet I must ?ay that
a good niany seemed surprised to seo a
peaceful and civilized man from our
State, and some would openly make the
remark tbat "he looks civil enough."
There are a great many who proclaim
loudly against tho present government
in South Carolina, and most of them
whom I,conversed with are.very bitter
against " Salary Grab," and T think the
latter maj' possibly have some force in
the next election.
I feel that I have already introduced
too much on your valuable time, so
hoping I may hare the pleaxureof meet
ing Edgefield friends soon again, I now
bid you adieu. E. A.

PACKING COTTON. HULLING COT

And for that purpose, have put up a
Steam Engino and Cotton Press, with
commodious Buildings, at Edgefield Vil
lage, and are now ready to receive Cot
ton, and hope by honest, fair dealing, to
merit a liberal patronage.
Our terras for Ginning aud Packing
will be One-Fifteenth of tho quantity re
ceived ; and if we furnish Bagging and
Ties, our charge for them will be $2.60
for 8 yards of best Double Anchor Bag
ging, weighing 2i lbs. to the yard,, and 6
Ties to the Bale.
We have put up two of Carver's Im
proved Gins,-famous for picking clean,
and line sample. It is a settled fact, that
cotton ginned by steam or water power,
will turn out 15 pounds more lint to a
five hundred pound bale, than that gin
ned by horse power ; and wo hope soon,
to convince the planters of this vicinity,
that it is cheaper to have us Gin their
Cotton than to Gin it at home.
We have not yet put our Huller and

so as soon as the Ginning season is over,
