Mxaau. EDITORS i Having recently
had occasion to maka a short tour among
those hospitable people of Shatterfield,
* in the upper portion of our District, I
thought it might not be altogether unin
teresting to yon and the balance of man
kind to hear something about them. Bat
justas we begin to enter the suburbs of
that place v/e will find living at Shin
burg, just beyond Liberty Hill, Mr. W.
I?. Yeldell, (more familiarly known as
Pony Yeldell) one of Gov. Hampton's
Trial Justices, who though young in
years seems to be tho right man in the
right place-the more so because he did
not seek the office but the -lice sought
him, and because "he is not hunting up
a id encouraging litigation and difficul
ties bet wee.i neighbors, but is trying to
have them amicably settled. He isa
son-in-law of our highly and^m?*1?^0^
of lifD?rty Hill, than whom it Ls said no
more honest man has been made. And
without-detracting, or even wishing to
detract, one single iota from the honesty
of pur friend Sheppard, it may be truth
fully said, that our friend Poney is just
as honest as his Father-in-law can be.
But I have digressed. Let us return to
Shattorfield. > Beyond Shinburg you will
begin to enter Shatterfield. There are
the Edwards', Stones, Hendersons, Mi
nors, Hancocks, Hollingsworths, Rush's,
Johnsons, Flinns and Quattlebaums, and
a host of other good citizens toe . uiner
ous to mention-all well to do farmers
whose farms are generally in repair, with
a3 good small grain Crops as any I have
seen in the District, and the first cotton
I have seen up this spring.
Although this land is not so good as it
is in some other parts of the District, its
owners know how- to. manage it ; and
this brings to mind the old adage which
says " there is more in the man than
there is in the land," and this is literally
true of the people of Shatterfield ; for
besides their own home-made composts
they give it just wha1. it needs and that
is plenty of good elbow grease, and.ai?
-?orso?rching it to doafcb-with commer
cial fertilizers. They also have but few
if any free negroes to be bedeviled with
and like the little boy who said he had
no bread and did not want any, and if
they have no free negroes neither do I
believe they want any. Let it be ex
pressly understood that that little boy
did neither grow or live in Shatterfield.
They also raise their own provisions and
do not keep their smoke houses and corn
cribs in Augusta or any other foreign
market, and their by-word is, " I live at
home and board at the same place."
They also raise their own stock-horses,
mules, cows, sheep, <tc. From one to
three colts may be seen at the same farm.
I have visited Shatterfield at intervals for
gretting that I had gone there, for those
people, plain and unassuming, always
have something good to eat, and havo it
so bountifully and are so kind and hos
pitable with it if you are not a good hand
to say no and to refuse a good offer, you
will eat more than you want or ought to
eat before you know it. Shatterfield is
also a good place for longevity. For
instance, old Mr. Henry Rush and his
wife. He having lived his four score
and four years and she nearly four score
having lived together over fifty years,
and tc see their great grandchildren
growing up around them. He is now
afflicted with paralysis and dimness of
sight, but she seems to be lively and
cheerful and as active as many not more
than half her age. Then there is old
Uncle Billy and Aunt Polly his wife who
have long since lived ont the allotted
time to man on earth-being each above
four score years of age, having liv od
together nearly if not qnite three score
years. Rush and wife are Baptisis ;
Johnson and wife are Methodists ; ard to
find more pious and better people than
these I would not know where to go
And there is Mr. William Flinn, although
above three score and ten years of age,
at times almost as sprightly as a man of
twenty years, and but for his gray hairs
would not be judged to be over forty or
fifty years of age ; and his mother (by
the woy who was the the grand-mother
of the youngest Mrs. Christian at Edge
field C. H..) who departed this life a few
years ago, was nearly if not quite one
hundred years of age at ber death.
When our troubles with the Northern
States were about to commence Shatter
field withheld not her choicest sons, but
seht them forth at once to the front and
many of them came back home no more,
but died at their posts with their armor
on, fighting the battles of their country
and filled soldiers graves as all true sol
diers will do. And it is well known how
nobly and promptly Shatterfield acted
when our struggle commenced last sum
mer for home-rule and honest govern
ment ; and hist but not least we all know
how firm and manly one of her leading
spirits, viz : Capt. James Callison, now
stands upon the watch tower of his
country at Columbia, still battling for
the good of our common canse and
country. So you may weigh Shatter
field in the balance whenever you choose
ahd she will never be found wanting.
Concerning the curious superstition
about thirteen at dinner, we have just
come across this singular incident in
a Tecent English book. Some years
since, poor Albert Smith gave a sup
per of thirteen that discredited the
superstition in a remarkable manner.
H mself on the point of starting for
China; he entertained twelve friends
who were bound for the Crimea, to
encounter the perils of war as milita
ry officers or as journalists reporting
the incidents of the conflict. Deeming
it in the highest degree improbable
that they would meet again on Eng
lish ground when they had once start
ed for the scene of danger, the twelve
guests met their host with light hearts,
and laughed about the fate which
some of them wculd of course enconn
ter in a few months. Strangely
enough, all twelve returned from the
war in perfect health.and supped
again at a table ol *hirteen with the
humorous lecturer.-Harper's Maga
The following conversation took
place recently in a hotel : " Waiter 1"
"Yes, sir." " What's this?" "It's
beau wop, sir." -'^o matter what
it h is been, ine rjueetk*. is?*Wfl*fc4s<

I Tbs New Egyptian Cotton.
A few days ago mention was made
ID thus journal ul'a new species of
cotton plant 'recently discovered in
Egypt, which promises to produce
remarkable results. We are able to
furnish some details in regard to the
advantages claimed for the new cot
its value is in i^^emarkable pro
ductiveness. Eight acres of this cot
ton which \VHP cultivated by the
English 'engineer on un*.of th^ Vice
roy's great i-ugnr. plantations, pro"
duced twenty thousand pounds of
seed cottou. This gentleman says
that " on the beat lands of the Ameri
can cotton belt the yield would cer
tainly be not less than five times the
quantity grown from the ordinary
He describes it aa growing to the
height of ten feet, having a straight
vertical main stem, with few branches
and sparsely leaved. Seventy bolls,
of larger size than ou ordinary cotton
plant, is not a remarkable number for
a single branch to bear. He planted
the stalks from which the "results
mentioned were attained half & yard
apart. The season which suits it
bast ii a spring damp and warm, with
showers or irrigation, that the plant
may receive a good first growth.
Then a summer with bright, hot days,
and nights cooler, with moist evap
orations and heavy dews. The Egyp
tian autumn, which is dry, permits
the fullest time for the maturity and
gathering the crop.
The Viceroy has used every pre
caution to prevent the seeds being
exported, as he desires to retain so
valuable a ?>lant exclusively in his
own dominion. Where the new
plant originated is not known. It is
thought to have first been brought
down the Nile from some of the
jjins-^trder the" equator. The seed
is worth in Egypt fifty cents per
pound, and will not be sold at all for
As the climate is very like that of
our cotton region between this city
and Vicksburg, we have no doubo it
would do quite as well here as on the
Nile, and under the intelligent, thor
ough culture of American planters,
would certainly produce results at
least equal to those attributed to it
in Egypt. An attempt should be
made to obtain sufficient of this seed
to give it a fair trial.
The best wa/ to accomplish this
would be through the American State
Department. Mr. Evarts would no
doubt instruct the Consul General at
Alexandria, or the Consul at Cairo,
to aid in the matter. It is certainly
worth. while to try it. The Times
?rill be pleased to aid in presenting
ihis matter to the State Department,
f any of our planters will co-operate.

Relapsing into Barbarism?
An outrageous case of superstition
3 creating great excitement on Coo
;aw Island, and it is feared bloodshed
nay result before the interested neigh
bors are convinced that they are the
rietims o? their own blind faith in
he supernatural. It seems that a
nan named Snipe died a short time
igo of consumption, and on his death
>ed remarked that if he died his
ieath would be owing to the influence
?f one Dago Hagood who some time
ast January came up behind- him
,nd putting one hand on each shoul
ler, asked, " Who is it?" a common
ustom among all classes. The cir
umstance was forgotten by both, and
mt for the death of Snipe would
robably never have been recalled
ad notjSnipe bef .re .hig^dea^h pro
o him that Hagood's playfulness had
een the cause of his sickness.
The friends of Snipe believing that
is dying declaration must be true,
ent to Dr. Johnson to hold an inquest,
nt the Doctor, after hearing the par
iculars, declined to do so. Snipe's
ither then threatened that if the law
rou!d not punish Hagood that he,
limself, would shoot him on sight,
.ne neighbor again came to Beaufort
or a coroner and after consultation,
lr. Carleton concluded, for the sake
f preserving the peace, he had better
?o ; and went and held an inquest,
.ut no further testimony could be
licted, and when the jury retired to
leliberate he told them that no ver
lict against Hagood could be render
id, as there was nothing to implicate
lim in the death of Snipe. The jury,
di colored, after a Tong deliberation,
efused to render any other verdict
han that of murder against Hagood,
ind so the case stands at present.
Since the above was written we
lave seen a copy of the verdict of
he jury which is worth preserving
md is as follows : " That Adam Snipe
:ame to his death ai, Coosaw Island,
n Beaufort County, on the ll th day
)f April, 1877, and that his death
firas caused through one Dago Hagood,
ie having some time previously put
lis hands around deceased's neck pro
lucing a cough and poisoning said
kdam Snipe, thereby wilfully, un
awfully and feloniously causing the
leath of the said Adam Snipe con
trary to the peace and dignity of
Mr. Carleton very properly refused
:o commit Hagood on such an absurd
marge.-Beaufort Tribune, Alk inst.
The Port Royal Advertiser says
mat the jury brought in the same
verdict three times, and that Dago
Hagood is now in jail.
And now here's another argument
tn favor of stealing. A Connecticut
boy was kicked by a horse the other
day, and he would have been killed
had not the force of the kick been
broken by some stolen apples which
he had secreted in his hat under his
A HEN STORY.-A brother-in-law
of a well-known New Haven gentle
man, engaged in the gun business in
this State, dropped a pistol cartridge
in the yard of his . .-sidence at Mid

found out where it went to. One
ol his hens, not at all apprehensive,
picked it cp, and got down the wrong
kind of a shell,-not favorable to egg
making longevity,-for a day or two
afterward she was blown into mince
meat by the explosion of the cartridge
inside of her digestive apparatus.
This is fact.-New Haven Journal
