Tu an interviewer at Washington, fien.
M. C. Butler, of South Carolina, said:
There is nothing surprising in Smalls' do
fe.U when you know the facts. Isn't it
asking a little too much, oven of the poor
darkies, to send a man to Congress who
is a convicted and self confessed thief, on
ly out of thc penitentiary by suilerance?
Would you blaine the people of Pennsyl
vania, for instance, for not voling for such
a man, or consider it surprising if he
were overwhelmingly defeated?

was the victor-the most perfect

this is saying a vast deal. For he did net

Congressmen-elect Tillman, of Edgeneld,
who succeeds the negro Smalls in the next
House, explains the change by saying that
his people are tired of being represented
in Congress by "big buck niggers," and
will have no more of it ; if the Northern
people want that Jori of representatives
they can send them, but the Southern
people have had enough of it.
The man who mortgages bis crop be

better sell what he has and hire himself

Judging from this, our old friend, Br.

of cutlery, jewelry, and other articles eas

and started in pursuit of the thieves, go

so quickly and violently he broke a blood

and ball of the Rifles will take place on
Friday of this week, as before announced.
The tilt will begin, we presume, between
10 and ll o'clock in the forenoon. The
gentlemen having the ball in charge hope
to make the occasion memorable in the
social history ot our tuwn-memorable
for its brilliancy and its delights. The
band-an accomplished and experienced
one-will come from Augusta. And the
military element pervading the whole oc

The following telegram to the Chronicle 1
and Constitutionalist will tell the fate of

ate the honorable settlement made by the
last Legislature, was killed by a vote of

settled, and South Carolina stands at least
for two years to come as a non-repudia i

Ltt us recommend to you a beautiful <
Christmas present for your sweetheart- J
or for any lady friend. At Penn's there '
are lovt-L new-fashioned vases for small 1
(lowers. They are bowl phaped and cup
shaped, shallow and graceful, made of fine
porcelain, in imitation of basket work.
Around them, or perched upon the rims, I
stand poetical figures or groups. These 1
vases are exquisitely colored; and any la
dy of rttined taste would be delighted to 1
set one upon her centre table or mantel- ,
piece. In price they range from $'? to.*?. '
But Mr. Penn has thousands and thou
sands and thousands of lovely things much l
cheaper than this. Indeed such an array J
of toys, candies, sweetmeats, fireworks, ,
&c , &c, &c, we have really never seen. <
Excitable children or young persons ,
carried to Penn's just now, would be pr?t- J
ty apt to lose their minds permanently.
Mr. Oscar Chcathara also offers his ]
house and lot in Buncombe for sale. This <
is a very beautiful place-the old Whit
field Brooks mansion-historical in Edge- .
The Collier Sabre Club, over on the J
West side, will have a tournament and
ball at Collier Post Office, on Tuesday, the .
24th instant. This Club was organized 1
only a few months back, but its members '
-the Adamses, the Butlers, the Patti- :
sons, the Garretts, the Mathiscs, the Ham- j
monds, the Holmeses, &c.-are old and '
gallant in the causo. The ball is to take 1
place at the hospitable residence of Dr. i
Henry Garrett. The brave bays have !
honored us with an invitation, and we
hope we shall be able to be with them. 1
Several of our gay boys-five-dollar <
fellows-are oil'on this morning's train to '
Augusta, to see Lotta on Wednesday I

The most attractive display of pianos,
organs and musical instruments we have .
ever seen in this city is at the music i
hall ofG. O. Robinson & Co. Their large
show window is elegantly arranged, con
taining full sets of silver and brass in
struments, with every variety of string
instruments, also clarionets, drums, cym- ,
bals, fifes, piccolas, flutes, accord?ons, har
monicas, tamborines, banjos, flageolets,
radiophones, music boxes, and in the
midst of all a fine organ, with an electro
magnetic sign just above it, constantly vi
brating T. M. H. O. T. .<. This new and .
beautiful style of advertising is pecnliarly
attractive at night, as this window is al
ways illuminated. G. 0. Robinson & Co.
have already sold several elegint pianos '
and organs for Christmas presents, andar?
fully prepared for the holidays with eve
ry thing in musical linc to make hornes
happy at wonderful low prices.
