mr friend, L., for the meeting of the
Pomona Grange at ML Y/illing. Our
friend, who is a high official in the

forking man, has a bad habit of not
?tarting in time. And before we get to
Tohnston be Joses u}s overcoat, which be' j

of Mr. Frank Boyd, two miles from Mt.

[long snake, and its business men sit in
their front piazzas with an air which

nth unfeeling malice, that Mr. Boyd

listen like fruits, of gold. Johnston

?r the most generous breakfast we have
in roany a day, v/e start out to look
I Mr. Boyd's broad bottoms, on a branch
Richland Creek, and to see the old
iveyard. Mr. Boyd is a famous corn
rmer, and, we understand, has not
fught an ear in seven years. And judg

is Mrs. Boyd packing a huge bask?
much larger than a child's crib !
And now we cross Richland Creek an
are at the "Mount." This is old Mt Wi
ling-almost historic-where Col. Jaco
Smith lived in old times, and dispense
an elegant hospitality ; .and where bal
talion musters were held annually-?
.which men fought, and bled, and diec
for mere pastime. Col. Smith's house
now occupied by Mr. Ay cock, is mue

tko pic-nic. The hill literally swarm
with men, with women, with chi.dren
with horses, and with vehicles. Tw<

is filled, below and above, with youth

But the Pomona Grange officials, wit!
the exception of Master T. H. Clark anc
one o- two others, are not present Theil
homes are too far distant to make theil
attondauoo very practicable-some ol
them forty miles. The Pomona Grange
will never be a success until its place oi
meeting is set and fixed-and at some
central and accessible point. Nor is
State Lecturer Lipscomb on hand ; he
has an engagement elsewhere. Isaac
Edwards, Esq.. Master of Little Saluda
Grange, is active in hospitality and zeal,
and has made every preparation to give
his follow grangers from all quarters a
Saluda; welcome. But the social element
I of tho day predominates over both hus
! bandry and politics. The dinner is
grand ; it is like an inexhaustible gold
mine. Never have our eyes beheld a
longer one or a finer one. Our friends,
Mrs. Boyd, Mrs. Mahlon Padgett and
Mrs. Major Padgett pay us kindly atten
tions at table, and we fare royally. They
ask us many sly questions about " Mrs.
Hatcher's chicken-pie at Pine House,"
and evidently look upon ns as a man
who would not know truth if we met
her on the highway. And we find out
that Mrs. Major Padgett has a pie of
pretty much the same quality and di
mensions-perhaps a few feet deeper !
And now we are introduced to Mr.
Ayoock and hjs hospitable and refined
family. He-is a courteous and intelli
gent gentleman. His turpentine works
are four miles off; and it is said that he
turns out daily 6 barrels of pure spirits
.and SQ of rosqu or gum. Wo hope to visit
him before tho summer i? done, and to
be able to give an interesting skp^?h of
his enterprise imd gf?fjf?j o?p;ap,$i.

say to ourself, what, after all, is human
honor and glory ? To have fought, the
great straight-out light as we have, and
then be spoken of as " the head of the
printing machine." lt is well however,
that human vanity should be taken down
now and then.

"Dearing place," now tho property and

House friend, James L. Mathis, Esq.
Six miles lie between us and our goal.
We reach the old Dozier place, now own

I luxuriant vinos and exquisite flowers
winds in and out among these lowlands,
giving the whole scene the character of
a Ked River landscape. Acres and acres
j of corn, green until it is black, tall until
it emulates tho mast of a ship, and laden
'until it almost sinks from the weight of
a single ear, dot the vast expanse, while
he;*ds of lowing cows and grazing sheep
roam herc and there at will. This is tho
most splendid plantation in our County ;
it contains 1285 acres, equally divided
between uplands and bottoms. Such
corn as Mr. Matins's we have simply
never seen before in our lives ; no>* do
we believe it could be matched this side
of Red River. Nor is his cotton a whit
behind his corn.
And now we cross a bridgo in a very
romantic spot, and draw near the Dear
ing mansion. It is on a hill embowered
in lofty trees, and is a mansion fit in size
and style for an English duke. Indeed
as we sit in the vast piazza and gaze up
to the tops of tho lofty fluted columns,
we imagine ourself at the White Sulphur
Springs in Virginia. And our welcome,
too, and our entertainment, befits an
Enciish duke. And the ladies of Mr.
Mathis' family-beautiful, refined and
musical-add their charms and their
amiability to the occasion. And we
spond the evening in music and the
dance, and sleep in an airy upper cham
ber that seems a hundred feet above the
ground. Really a visit to the Dearing
place is equal to "going to the springs."
And verily it delights us to see our old
friend so prosperous and so happy in his
Saluda home. God knows, though, it is
by no means hard to bo happy in such a
homo as that !
And now, morning come and break
fast over, we walk through countless
acres of magnificent corn and cotton,
and look into a barn where lie 750 bushels
of threshed oats, and then prepare, un
willingly, to make our adieux. And
again we hear the order : " Put a dozen
big ears of corn and Jots of oats into
those gentlemen's bug?jy;" and when
we get Into the vehicle ourselves, we
find a box that soon tolls its own tale.
It is a lordly lunch ; and just before we
reach Johnston we stop in theshade, and
all three, men and beast, gorge like
And now, having got so noar home?
our tale is done.
As regards the growing.ppnvandicot

l? say that in riS'ycaf Kihee the war have

ing: to see that our farmers on the hills

only as a surplus 'crop. As things are
going now, we will no longer keep our
corn-cribs aud wheat granaries in St
Louis, and our smoko houses in Cin

The roads up the country are in as

FROM the Annual Report, for 1&75, of Hon. STEPHEN IL
MODES, Insurance Commissioner of Massachusetts.
"T is becoming'more apparent every day that a radical change in tue plans
.of Life Insurance is demanded.. What the Public require, and will have,
is a form of Insurance adapted to their necessities. * * It is ? matt?
of surprise that our leading Companies have not made greater efforts to
enlighten the people on the merit ol'Term Insurance. :;: f, Level pre?
niiams, extending beyond the producing age, and Endowments burdened
with enormous expense, will not meet these .want.-."
The MOBILE LIFE is now issuing to the people a New Policy, and-one
that is adapted to their wants and necessities Not only those wanting
new insurance, but those already insured', would find it to their inter?s* to
call on the undersigned.
