Death of a Little Child.
On 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 lit rle child was an only one, 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 ways of men, it is a bless
ed thought that we have children in Heav
en and not on earth.
Dettth of James E. Cook.
On Wednesday, the 3rd instant, as our
last issue was being printed, Mr. James E.
Cook, of Granjteville, wkile,^ in Augusta,
was stricken with paralysis, and after ly
lng'for an hour or two, prostrate ard
u-speechless, in the Globe Hole!, 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 bad lived in Granite
tille, where he acquired a fortune, and a
name that was a synonym for piety, hon- J
or, honesty, enterprise, public spirit, and
benevolence. Indeed, throughout his lifei
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 man.
We hope-and we believe-that his soul
is with God.
Death of Mm. Emily Dorn.
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 Dean, of
Sleepy Creek, an elder sister of Messrs.
Aaron, Marion and Rufus Dean. Until
twenty years back-when her husband,
comparatively broken np by the vicissi
tudes of the war-removed to Georgia
of course 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
aiill living in Edgefield. To these-to her
aged and bereaved husband-and to her
troops of devoted relatives in many parts
of our County-we beg leave to offer our
most genuine sympathy, in this their sad
and grievous bereavement.
editor of the Monitor clings to whal
he said as regalds 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 tht wheel is the centre ol
motion, which fact we fail to recog
nize, and must insist that the centre
of wittel is centre of motion. To
prove that we are correct, we bring
before him a wheei of twelve spokes;
number the top stoke 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
one spoke and we will find 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. 9, and
BO on, proving that the bottom keeps
exact pace with the top. We agree
with the Abbeville Press and Panner
io saying that "the top goes forward
while the bottom does not;" since
while the top ia going down, the bot
tom ia coming np; but still every por
tion of a wheel at the same circu?a
ference moves alike. We hope wo
have made ourselves clear to our friend
of the Monitor. Yours truly,

Strange Relit of a Famous Hail
Mr. John H. Simona yesterday sent
to ihe cilice of the New* and Courier
an ounce and a half vial filled with
water from a single hail stone that
fell here during the terrible storm ol
June 5, 1340. The vial has been
hermetically sealed for the last forty
five years. The water is comparatively
desi-, though ol a brownish lint, and
in it is a brown spongy looking sub
stance very much resembling an or
dinary sized tadpole. The bottle was
shown lo one of the leading ebemists
of the city who gave it. as hie opinion
that. it. contained a large amount of
unusual mineral matter. ?Several
scientific gentlemen stated that it
would be a great curiosity to have the
bottle opened and tho water analyzed,
but in the absence of Mr. ?Simous, who
bad not joven his consent to such a
proceed i ug, this of course could not
be done. Some ol the gentlemen
referred to said that the water, as
soon an the cork wnnl 1 be removed,
would become offensively putrid, and
probably turn as black as ink.- Netos

-lina Laut Friday-White W
From thc HamjHov Guardian.
Last Friday "morning's Augusta
bound train rolled np to the depot at
McNeill's on time, and the passengers
and those of the citizens congregated
there for business witnessed a sight
that either froze them with astonish
meuL or made them very sick at their
stomachs. As we are informed, the
two Massachusetts schoolmarms were
at the station to board the train, hav
ing determined to go "iNarth" 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
roun i, and sorrowful adieus were bid
den. So far t he scene waa interesting,
hui when the teachers reached the
scholars the exhibition becamenau
seating to those witnessing it. j The
Schoolmarms began to kiss the little
negroes with a relish, and for a short
time the business like "smack! soack!
emack I" of osculation went on, intil
the ruby lips of the white instruc
tresses had sipped the nectar from
the capacious moutha of every biassed
little African on the platform anil be
stowed a number of "busses" on the
shining black faces of negro women.
The "toot toot" of the steam wnistle
resounded above the kissing throng,
the females stepped ou board thecars,
and the train moved iff. If ikwas
the intention of these females to^dis
guet the passengers and citizens. by
this 'spectacle, they succeeded. Such
eights are new to people in South
Carolina, and they are not disposed to
endorse,- aid or abet the performers,
The business of teaching negroea ia
not a very creditable one for this la
dies to engage in, yet it may not be
repulsive to a class of people who
have been taught that the negro is
superior to the white, and who carry
tht ir puritanic lanaticism to extremes
for I he purpose ul irritating Helfrespeot
ing citizena of communities in which
tbe school's are located. These female
teachers are, respectively, aged about
19 aud years. The name of one
is Miss Canie E. Warren, of Newton,
Mass.] and the other bails from Ei ving,
Mast., and ia known as Miss Clara
Lidie Simouda. They are employed
by tom?s benevolent society in the
North, and no doubt regard them
selves as missionaries in a benighted
?nd ; but, for the eake. of decency
and good order, they should' not give
any more public exhibitions of their
love for Ibo negro or practical lessens
in social equality. We do not think
the eociety which employa them will
approve of this method of enlighten
ing the blacks, and we are not quite!
prepared to believe, even aiter thej
lisguatiug performance at McNeill'fi
station, tbat the people of Massachu
setts, as a whole, are so fond of th
Southern black as these "down east
Hohcolmarms seem to be. If so, the
wc most fervently beseech the gou

lo migrate Southward, only let a fJ
