The Bannock Mills.
Stepping into the store of one of
our leading dry goods merchants a
few days back, oar eye fell upon
numberless bolts ol bea uti ful ginghams
--infinitely varied in their plaid pat
terns and bright colors, and as
smooth as muslin. ^ But upon taking
hold of them-our mere eyes would
have deceived us forever-we found
them tobe too thick and solid for
ginghams. They were what merchants
and manufacturers call " Domes lies."
Great and honest was our purprise.
And still greater was our surprise
mired with intens? pleasure and pride
-when we discovered that they were
the fruit of the new Sibley Mills in
Augusta. This is enterprise-and
honor ard worth and prosperity !-at
our very doors. Indeed we may say
AT HOHE ; for truly Augusta its home
to all Edgefield ; and Augusta honor
and enterprise are dear to Edgefield's
heart. We know but little about man
ufacturing matters and still lees about
" Domestics," but this outcome of the
Sibley Mills has set us to thinking.
It is a revelation to us. And we
begin to see.the time clearly when
the cotton of the South will be manu
factured at home. As regards the
name " Bannock Mills," we find out
that all great manufacturing establish
ments adopt some such distinctive
title-quite apart from the names of
the men composing the company. So,
fn future, when you hear of" Bannock
Mills"-and it will very surely be
come a household word-you may
know that it means the great Sibley
weaving concern in Augusta. And in
conclusion let us say that we are not
M puffing" the Sibley Mills. We have
no card from them and do not know
that we are even acquainted with
any of the company. We were struck
with unfeigned admiration by their
'beautiful goods ; and it gives us the
greatest possible pleasure and pride
to pay a alight tribute to Augusta

No Eitra Session.
There is a?nally no foundation for
the rumors sent^om here at different
times for the past ew weeks in regard
jto an extra session ?f Congress. Every
one knows that therevill bea special
session of the Senate. Even if the
tarin? bill fails to become a law the
President willmot call an e.tra session
of the House, for he like mary others
* believes that no special harm will be
done to wait until the time of the
"regular session comes, in December
cftxt.T->?? has been suggested to the
? President several times that he should
i call an extra session of Congress should
the tarin bill fail, but he has never
indicated that he regarded the sug
gestion of any value. Indeed, it is
known that he has stated that there
no special necessity for it.- 11

Messrs. Editors : Altar a Wandering
Jew life of eight weeks, I sleep to-night
for the first time under ray own shingles.
And nov.-, in compliance with your ur
gent request and my promise, and after
being such an important factor in the
events which have juut culminated, i
? will of necessity bc forced to use fro
quently the personal pronoun Ego. This
is from no egotism of mine, however
and it may be pronounced of me, judg
iug from my hurriedly written letter to
night, that Ego sum, stultus. I care noth
ing for this, though, as I do not presume
for myself the gifts which go to make
up a correspondent, and I write simply
because yon requested and I promised
and write M Paligmaty."-(don't consult
Webster.) Many may not know that I,
in the short space of one week, made up
my mind, came down here, bought, sold,
and was packing to leave Edgefield ; the
latter event being accomplished from
beginning to end in a drenching rain
enough to break the spirit of any one
horse fellow. Not once, however, did it
even bend mine. And here I am, trans
planted among strangers, who received
me with ''open arms." Of course ]
mean the men! All have been exceed'
ingly kind to me and mine, which I ap
prec?ate more than money. But as our
mutual friend, "Capt. Joe," once said
while suffering: "The half has never
been written about colic." I reckon not;
neither has it been about a change such
as I have just made. With the many
trials, Ac., that I have experienced, there
have been pleasures also. These good
people have been so exceedingly kind
that T forgot much of the trouble, and I
have found some new things-one of
which is that some of these good people
carry their hearts in their left breasts
and not in their breeches " pockets. Of
some people here, and this country, I
want to and will, D. V., write in future,
But before I quit this subject, lest some
wrong construction? bo made, let me say
without misrepresentation, that my most
sanguine expectations are more than re
alized. Wbat is in store for me I do not
know, but I hope and pray for an hon
orable and christian life, and money
enough lor necessities.
Churches and schools are convenient,
but I have attended religious services
but once. Then I heard the Rev. Mr.
Lacroix, of Edgefield, and was delighted
with the man, and simply carried away
with the preacher, in all that goes to fi^
him in the discharge of such a calling.
He does not allow any side-shows while
his services and duties are going on. The
congregation was large; and to say noth
ing of the ladies, the men, two-thirds ol'
them, wore as handsome as W. R. M.,
and tho otr .... one-third compared very
favorably with Co.-Com. W. E. D., my
friend. And they can teach a congrega
tion or two in Edgelield what good sing
ing is to a church. But all of these men
must be poor indee d, or stingj'-too close
to buy a pocket knife or pencil, for I lind
not a mark of the knife on ?ny pew in
the church ; nor have I been able to see
where they have written their names, or
drawn their faces, on any piece of church
property. They ar? uot fashionable men
either, for you cannot see them squirting
their tobacco juico all over tho church,
for ladies to wipe?op with dresses. This
is so forcibly impresseed upon me, and
with so much pleasure, that I aro obiigej}
to writo it down for the information of
some of my fast friends in Edgefield.
I am busy trying to get things to rights,
and having littie, and a short horse being
easily curried, hope to get through soon.
And the motives voluntarily assigned
for my leaving good old Edgefield, the
sarcastic wishes sent after rae, and all
other nonsensical rumors made about
me, so far from " face to face," to-the
contrary notwithstanding, I am perfect}
ly willing to dismiss them and proclaim)

Leesville and Its Educational Adran
Messrs. Editors : It wus my privilege
to pass one hour in Leesville, Lexing
ton County, last week, and I know of no
town in the State so delightfully situ?t
ed. It is on the C. C. & A. R. R., nearly
midway between Augusta and Colum
bia, on a table land as lovel as a prairie,
high, dry and healthy, with a genial and
mild climate. The buildings are stately,
the sheets are broad and straight, with
forest trees at equal spaces, symmetrical
and beautiful, casting their shadows np

has recently been erected and dedicated
to the cause of education, and is known
as the Leesville English and Classical
College Institute. The scenery and sur
round inga aro beautiful, fronting the new
portions of the town. The rooms for re
citation are large and conveniently ar
ranged ; the music department is sepa
rate. This Institution of learning is un

Busby, Principal, and Mr. J. G. Ether

The number of pupils is about IOC, in
eluding scholars from Orangeburg, New

A petition was sent to the Town
Council of Aifcen on Saturday the 17th
Feb., by the Hon. James Aldrich,
attorney for the Carolina, Cumberland

asking for permission to use certain
streets in that place for the purpose
of connecting the new railroad with

the Council heartily endorsing the
construction of the road and granting
it the right of way asked for free ot

assure the early completion of the

One Tear in Heaven
The second month of another year is
here, and will soon be lost In the chaos
of ages. How many changes have come
about in tho last twelve months ! How
many heart? have boen bleat, how many
been made desolate by the loss of dear
ones! Among the many hearthstones
saddened by death, is that of a loved and
valued friend, in the loss of a dear and
treasured daughter and sister, Mrs. MA
RY ADAMS, relict of the gifted young
lawyer and gallant soldier, Capt. CICERO
ADAMS, and daughter of Maj. JOHN H.
HUGHES, who died on the 16th February,
188?, in the 42d year of her age. Belong
ing to a family proverbial for its un
bounded hospitality, its kindness to the
sick and suffering, to the poor and needy,
our dear friend was a prominent mem
ber. No weary or care-worn pilgrim
ever crossed their threshold without tan
gible aid and words of cheer and com
fort. Devoted to the Church of her fa
thers and her love-the Methodist Epis
copal-she had been a worthy and cher
ished member since her earliest youth.
To her widowed mother she was com
forter, counselor and support ; to her
brothers, the idolized sister; to her sis
ters, ar adviser and solace; to her moth
erless nieces and nephews, a second
mother in very deed. And now she has
gone to her reward.
One year in Heaven ! One vear in the
city of our God, the Heavenly Jerusa
lem, where the crystal fountains dow
and the eternal hills are clothed in living
green ! In the celestial Eden rich with
fruitage of immortal growth, where the
dowers never fade! One year in tho
presence of her Saviour, of angelic hosts
of the redeemed, of the Triune Majesty,
where there is no more night, or suffer
ing, or death ; where no more tears are
shed, or burdened hearts are weary. The
loving care of her tender mother, devot
ed brothers, gentle and affectionate sis
ters and loving nieces could not stay the
hand of the fell destroyer, but God sent
a tender and ministering angel from on
high, who bore her to her homo above.
One year in heaven ! She has boen re
warded ten thousand fold, yea, ten thou
sand times ton tbousaud, for r" l<or un
told suffering hero.
Peace to her loved and r ..mem
ory ! It will be ever fresh aim green in
tho hearts of those who loved her.

The Ohio Flood.
The damage by the Ohio floods to
property is reckoned hyui^jrtBfc
olated dwellings an<fl|0 Ks,
as well as tow/j^>^re1ieved "rom tneff:
?PJTKas 10,000 people in urgent
(fed. Lawrenceburg, aplace of about
? ,000 inhabitants, is practically swept
way. When the water recedes and
incov^B the area the town occupies, :
t is considered questionable "wheth- i
r a single house will remain tenant- i
mle." The basis on which this con
ecture rests must be considered am- .
ile if it be trne, as reported irom the
ocality, that "people move about in
kiffe, searching for their homes, and
.nxiously feeling below the surface
if the water with rods and poles to
^certain if their houses lave with
tood the floods and remain in posi
ton. " Some eight hundred heads of
amilies in Lawrenceburg are depriv
d of their only source of income,
.ud for the time being are absolutely
lependent upon charity forthe neces
dries of life. Distress and want ap
>ear on every side. The damage
wrought in Louisville involves dis
rees to several thousands. Jefferson
rille, a place of 10,400 people, oppo
ite Louisville, is very nearly obhter
tted by the flood. Four-fifths of this
own are under water and at least
'?,000 of its inhabitants are without
loines and personal effects beyond
he clothes they wear. Half the bu
siness men of the place are ruined
inancially. 'There were situated here
extensive car-works, glass works and
shipyards, employing 2,500 hands,
nost of whom are now made depen
lent upon charity for sustenance.
Mew Albany, a city ef 10,400 people,
ikewise opposite Louisville, is also
n a bad condition. Over 300 resi
dences are overturned, factories are
stopped, and business is brought to a
standstill. The overflowing water
jxtends beyond the city rearward
tome four miles, taking in several su
jurbs. Lower New Albany, Port
[Inion and Falling Run are reported
is "absolutely wiped off the map."
Th" loss in the larger town is placed
it $1,000,000, and some 11,000 home
e-s people are reported huddled into
dose, uncomfortable and necessarily
mb eal thy quarters, many of them
icantily clad, the large majority pen
niless, and all out of employment,
with no prospect for work for some
veeks to come. A great many have
ost nearly all of their household el
ects and nearly all are dependent
ipon public charity." Aurora loses
?00 houses. Clarksvil e is under wa
;er and half the town ii washed
iway. Hendentown and North Rend
ire submerged to the roofs of the
louses, with what results to the peo
Die in the loss of property may be
magined. To be added to the losses
rom the flood are the depredations
if "pirates," who plunder partialiy
looded and abandoned houses and
;ven steal the ropes by means of which
t is sought to prevent dwellings from
bating away. As is ueual when
nultitude8 of people are thrown to
gether in uncomfortable and un
tealthy quarters, with insufficient
md unwholesome food, disease con
ributes its share to the terrors of the
ituation. While the water was up

MUTINY OF CONVICTS.
They Set Fire To Hie Missouri Peni
tentiary and Endeavor to Escape.
ST. LOUIS, Februaiy 23.-A tele
gram to the Post JDisjiatch, from Jef
ferson City, says the convicts in the
penitentiary had just returned to their
shops from dinner to-day when a
preconcerted mutiny broke out in
the harness shop of Jacob utrausa &
Co. Four convicts seized Vau Horn,
foreman of the collar nhop and told
him to remain quiet. Four other con
victs seized Snider, foreman of the
harness shop and stripped him of his
clothes. John B. Johnson, the ring
leader, a highway robber serving a
sentence of twelve years, ran into the
department where horse collars are
stuffed and set a lot of loose straw on
fire. In a moment the building, with
its three shops, harness, collars and
whip, was on fire. Great confusion
ensued. The guarda ran in with the
hose and were met by the convicts,
who cut the hose. The ringleader,
Johnson, then made an eflbit to escape
over the walls, but despite the fact
that he had a knife and club, he was
captured and put in a dungeou. His
seven companions were also confined
in dark cells. The fire was got uuder
control, but not until the following
shops were completely destroyed :
Strauss & Co.'s harness shop, collar
shop and whip factory-loss, $100,
000 ; Grenock's boot and shoe shop,
$30,000; the State weaving and the
State machine shop, $40,000. and the
Excelsior Loom Factory, $20,000.
The total loe3 with damage to minor
State buildings w.ll reach $."00,000.
The Fate of Marsh T. Polk,
CHATTANOOGA, February 21.-A
gentleman who visited Colonel Marsh
T. Polk yesterday in the Nashville
jail says that he can scarcely speak
above a whisper, that he has* not
eaten anything since last Tuesday,
and that if confined in jail he would
not live more than x month. It is
thought that he can not live more
than six months even if taken out of
jail and afforded all thc neces.wy
comforts, so completely had his sys
tem been depleted. It was also stated
thatthe stench arising from the river
into his cell was insufferable, and
that this alone wa3 enough to keep
one tick. Congressman Caldwell of
this city says he will die in twenty
days. It is understood thst Colonel
Polk's bondsmen have agreed to settle
Colonel Polk's liabilities by the pay
ment of $200,000 in " new issue."
