New Cloud's Creek Church.
On Tuesday last, we had a vary pleas
ant visit from our honored friend, the
Rev. Mahlon D. Padgett, who, in these
days, very seldom comes to our town.
Mr. Padgett informs us-and we regard
the fact as an extremely happy one-that
the Cloud's Creek church organization
known in old times as West Creek-have
erected a new building to the worship of
Almighty God. This new building-large
and commodious-is to be dedicated on
the 4th Sunday in the present month;
and the Rev G. F. Williams, of Ridge
Spring, will preach the dedicate sermon.
Other clergymen, incfuding Mr. Padgett,
who is pastor of the church, wiil Be pres
ent. Besides the dedication ceremonies
and sermon of the forenoon, there will
also be cervices in the afternoon. It is a
matter of great and high rejoicing to see
new and worthier temples lo tho Living
God thus rising here and there in our
Batesburg's New Preacher.
m Kev. J. K. Pace, lately of Mayesville,
Ky., has accepted the invitation of the
Batesburg Baptist Church to become its
Sastor, and will shortly return to South
arolina, where he bas so many friends.
Mr. Pace will devote one week in each
month io missionary work in Lexington
County, in the employment of the State
Board. We are rejoiced that Batesburg
has secured so valuable a man. who will
be cordially welcomed to his new home.
A New Presbyterian Church.
It gives us the profoundest pleasure to
chronicle the fact that a new Presbyterian
church will, in all probability, spring up
in our Southern borders very soon. The
leaders in this good move are Mis. Simp
son and Mrs. B. R. Tillman. Mrs. Simp
son is a widowed sister of the Hon. G. D.
Tillman, and lives at the old Tillman
homestead on Fox's Hill^ And very near
this old homestead the new church will
be located. We understand that Capt.
Ben Tillman, Capt. John C. Swearengin,
John A. Wi6e, Esq., and the Hon. G. D
Tillman have already subscribed liberally
to this most praiseworthy undertaking.
For eight or ten months past, the Rev. S
L. Morris, of Trenton, has been preach
ing one Sunday afternoon in each month
in the old Tillman-homestead locality
sometimes in the Hussar Pavilion. And
to his zeal, ably seconded by Mrs. Simp
son and Mrs. lillman, is due the promis
ing effort now being made.
Looking After His Fences.
Senator M. C. Butler, after illustrating
South Carolina right nobly at Washing
ton, has returned to Edgefield for a few
weeks to look after his fences-not politi
cal, but agricultural ones. The sight of
his old Edgefield home and neighbors bas
a tonic effect upon him. The grandeur of
the Federal Capital is not to be compared
in bis mind with the pjainest prospect in
South Carolina.-Augusta ''hroniHe.
The carp fever has reached the Mine
Cr?ek section, Mr. Thomas Whittle being
the pioneer. He already has his pond
stocked with two-pounders from Capt.
.Bates' pond, at Batesburg. Others are
literally "moving the mud" in the fish
pond matter, and ere long the man who
cannot boast of his' carp pond will be the
man who has no mud hole to scoop out.
And we say, go on with your fisheries,
and let this be the motto of every farmer

cotton; more carp and less carping,-Mon
