Death of a Little Child.
Ou Saturday morning last, the infant
child of our beloved young friends, Mr.
and Mrs. W. F. Dobey, was laid to ever
lasting rest in our village cemetery. This
dear little child was an only ore, and,
therefore, an unspeakable loss to its fond
parents. What is woe for them, however,
is bliss for the child. When we look around
and see the evil wave ci" men, it is a bless
ed thought that we have children in Heav
en and not on earth.
Death of Jamis E. Cook.
On Wednesday, the 3rd instant, as our
last issue was being printed,' Mr. James E.
Cook, of Granjtevilie, whil\ in Augusta,
was stricken with paralysis, and after ly
ing*! for an hour or two, prostrate ar d
"speechless, in the Globe Hoto!, died at 1
o'clock p. m. James E Cook was an
Edgefield man, a native.of the Mountain
Creek section. From his earliest man
hood, however, he had lived in Granilc
ville, where he acquired a fortune, and a
name ?.nat was a synonym for piety, hon
or, honesty, enterprise, public spirit, and
benevolence. Indeed, throughout his life(
James E. Cook was such a man as we are
delighted to write down asa native of
Edgefield. We knew him well ; and in
our life we have known no better mau.
We hope-and we believe-that his soul
is with God.
Death ot' Mr?. Emily Doro.
This widely-known and widely-beloved
lady, the wife of Capt. James Dorn, of
Webster County, Ga., and the mother of
our honored townswoman, Mrs. Dr. Par
ker, died, at her home, on Sunday morn
ing last, after a lingering illness of several
months, aged, we think, about seventy
years. Mrs. Dorn was Miss DMW, of
Sleepy Creek, an elder sister of Messrs.
Aarou, Marion and Rufus Dean. Until
twenty years back-when lier husband,
comparatively broken np by the vicissi
tudes of the war-removed lo Georgia
of cenrse she had lived all her life in her
native section, where she was ever noted
for piety, benevolence and very unusuaj
purity of tone. Three of her children are
aUll living in Edgefield. To these-lober
aged and bereaved husband-aud to her
troops of devoted relatives in many paris
of our County-we beg leave to offer our
most genuine sympathy, in tltis their sad
and grievous bereavement.
For the ?Ivertiaer,
?IAXUS?AH ??Fr.TT.tn.-. tr
editor of the Monitor clings to what
he said as regaids the* top of the
wheel's moving one hundred and fifty
times faster than the bottom, and
calls our attention to the fact that the
bottom of the wheel is the centre oi
motion, which fact we fail to recog
nize, and must insist that the centre
of wheel is centre of motion. To
prove that we are correct, we bring
before him a wheel of twelve spokes;
number the top Broke 1, next 2, next
3, and so on till we reach the twelfth
one. We will begin with No. 1 at
the top, which will throw No. 7 at
the bottom; now turn the wheel just
oae spoke and we will lind No. 2 at
the top and No. S at the bottom ; turn
it one more spoke, two more, or three
more, and we will find No. 1 always
directly opposite No. 7 ; No. 2 oppo
site No. 8; No. 3 opposite No. 0, and
BO on, proving that the bottom keeps
exact pace with the top. We agree
with the Abbeville Press and Banner
in saying that "the top goes forward
while the bottom does not;" since
v/hile the top is going down, the bot
tom is coming np; but still every por
tion of a wheel at the same circnm
ference moves alike. We hope wo
have made onrselvesclear to our friend
of the Monitor. Yours truly,

Strange Relic ol' a Famous Hail
Mr. John H. Simons yesterday sent
to the ellice ol the j\m-s and Courier
an ounce and u half vial filled with
water from a single hail stone that
fell here during the terrible storm ol
June 5, 1 ri 10. The vial has been
hermetically sealed for the last forty
five yeats. The water is compare 'i vely
clear, though of a brownish tint, and
in it is a brown spongy looking sub
stance very much resembling an or
dinary sized tadpole. The bottle was
shown to one of the leading chemists
ol' the city who p.ve ?tas his opinion
that it. contained n Jaige amount of
unusual mineral matter. Several
scientific gentlemen stated that it
would be a great curiosity to have the
bottle opened and the water analyzed,
but in the absence of Mr. Simons, who
had not given his consent to such a
pioceediug, this cf course could not
ie done. Some ol the gentlemen
referred to said that the water, as
Boon an the cork wool 1 be removed,
would become o Henni vely putrid, and
probably turn as black us ink.- A'civs

A Dlfgiislliiir Scene'at Mr. Nei
-lion Last Friday-White
From thc Hampton Guardian.
Last bYiday "morning's Auguata
bo'und train roiied up to the depot at
McNeills on time, and the passengers
and those of the citizens congregated
there for business witnessed a sight
that either froze them with astonish
ment or made them very sick at their
stomachs. As we are informed, the
two Massachnsetts schoolmarms were
at the station to hoard the train, hav
ing determined to go "Narth" to
spend their summer vacation..? The
platform was black and redolent with
negro men, women and children, the
latter composing the scholars of the
institution presided over by these
schoolmarms. The hour of parting
having arrive 1, the good-byes to the
adults were most affectionately said
as the hearty hand-shaking went
round, and sorrowful adieus were bid
den. So far the scene waa interesting,
bu-, when the teacheis reached the
scholars the exhibition became nau
seating to those witnessing it. j The
school marms began to kiss the little
negroes .with a relish, and for a short
time the business like "smack! smack!
smack !" of osculation went on, until
the ruby lips of the white inetr.uc
-tresses had sipped the nectar from
the capacious moutbs.of every bbssed
little African on the platform ani be
stowed a number of "busses" on the
shining black faces of negro warnen.
The "toot toot" of the steam wiistle
resounded above the kissing throng,
the females Btepped ou board the|cars,
and the train moved efl'. If ifc,was
the inteution of theae females toAiis
gust the passengers and citizens by
this spectacle, they succeeded. Such
sights are new to people in South
Carolina, and they are not disposed to
endorse,- aid or abet the performers,
The business of teaching negroe3 is
not a very creditable one for the la
dies to engage in, yet if. may no?; be
repulsive to a class of people who
have been taught that the negro ia
superior to the white, and who carry
th? ir puritanic fanaticism to extremes
for the purpose of irritatingselfrespect
ing citizens of communitir-s in which
the school's are localed. These female
teachers are, respectively, aged about
]9 and 22 years. The name of one
ia Miss Carrie E. Warren, of Newton,
Muss., and the other hails from El ving,
Ma.'H., aud ia known aa Mies Oiara
Belle Simouda. They are employed
by tome benevolent society in the
North, and no doubt regard them
.selves as missionaries io a benighted
and ; but, for the sake of decency
ami good order, they should' not give
any more public exhibitions of their
lovn for I h? negro or practical lessens
in social equality. We do not think
the society which employs them willi
approve of this method of enlighten
ing the blacks, and we are not quite j
prepared to believe, evan after thc
dix.guatiug performance at McNeill'*
station, that the people of Maasachn
netts, aa a whole, are so fond of thj
