Newberry and Augusta.
From the Newberry Observer.
Mr. B. F. Sample of the Saluda
section of Edgefield County, was in
Newberry on Monday and Tuesday
sounding the sentiment of the people
on a narrow gauge railroad from New
berry to Augusta, by way of Edge
field C. H., for which a charter was
obtained at the last session of the
General Assembly. Mr. Sample re
presents the people of his section, and
of Edgefield County at large, as very
mach in favor of the road. On his
way over to Newberry he stopped at
Gen. Hagood's and had a talk with
him on the subj ect. Gen. Hagood fa
vora the project sod has been looking
forward to it for some time, only wa t
ing to see how the Cumberland Gap
subscriptions would pan ont. Recent
elections had assured him of its sui
cese, and he is now looking in this di
rection. Gen. Hagood says he wants
only $100,000 from Edgefield County
for the Newberry and Aogosta nar
row gaoge. AB the line in Newberry
woold be about one-fourth as long as
in Edgefield, we pr?same $25,000
from this side woold be sufficient; and
there surely would be no difficulty in
raising that. Let os have the New
berry and Aogosta, by all means.

Validity of Roman Catholic Bap
tism Among the Presbyterians.
In the General Assembly of the.
Northern Presbyterian Church, held
in Cincinnati lately, the Rev. Dr.
Philip Schaff, the foremost of the
American revisers of the Old and
New Testaments, offered a resolution
that the baptism of the Roman Catho
lic Church is a true and valid original
baptism which ought not to be, and
cannot be repeated. And almost
simultaneously, Dr. Adam Stuart
Muir, a distinguished preacher of the
FreePresbyterian Church of Scotland
wa? expelled from that Church for
popish practices. Dr. Muir was ac
cused cf teaching baptismal regenera
tion, worshipping God in nightly
prayer before a representation of j
Christ on the cross and sanctioning
the sale of his own portrait in an at
titude indicating approval of popish
doctrines and practices. Ile defended

would the Divine Master withdraw
from ber presence."
In concluding he produc. d almost

Pundit Pledged to Carry on the Exhibi
tion Another Year-The Reopening
to Occur in November.
NEW ORLEANS, June 4 -It has
finally been determined that the New
Orleans World's Industrial end Cot- i
:on Centennial Exposition shall be con- |
.inned another year, opening in No- c
/ember. When the proposition was t
irst made it was believed that the o
Jnited States Government would al- r
ow the exhibits of the various de- t
)artment8 and bureaus to remain r
lere. The idea of a continuance met b
vith great enthusiasm, and the Bub- b
cription8 needed were given in a b
auch shorter time than the original I
ontributions, but conditional upon
he government's exhibits remaining
1?re. When, therefore the President
efused to consent to this, the whole
.roject Beemed tc fall to pieces. It o
ras not abandoned altogether, how- n
ver, and an investigation was order- p
d to see whether it was not possibie w
o reopen the exposition without the rx
id, assistance, or exhibits of the tl
overnment. The commissioners of p
be various States, and the foreign w
nd domestic exhibitors, seemed well tl
ispo8ed toward this project, and it tl
?mained only to collect sufficient ot
loney to aesure success. Yesterday sr
recanvasB of the city waa made, and M
ll those who had subscribed toward w
i-opening conditional upon the gov- tc
-amenta exhibits remaining, were es
iked whether they would repledge of
leir subscriptions without this con- pc
tion. Ninety-nine out of a hundred ff
'reed to do so, while several in- hs
eased their subscriptions. At a ea
eeting of the citizens' committee th
st night it was officially stated that of
fficient money had been pledged,
id that the exposition, in consequence,
auld reopen m November. To-day es
e United States Commissioners for Bj
e various States met to consider the en
oposition. The citizens' committee wi
fered to pay $18,000 each month ga
iring the sommer to maintain the be
hibits of such States as would form- frc
ly accept the offer to take part in vic
the exposition. The proposition was
accepted by the commissioner, who
promised to do all in their power to
secare the indorsement of their Gov
ernors. In two weeks, as soon as the
present board of management shall
have completed the liquidation of the
affairs of the exposition, a new board
will be created, which will begin the
work of preparation for the exposition
in November. A large number of ex

A Shocking Accident.
AUGUSTA, GA., Jane 5.-Some days
ago a large piece of the coping of the
city hall fell to the pavement below,
and narrowly missed the Hon. A.
Brandt, a member of the Legislature,
who was passing at the time. Council
thereupon determined to have all the
coping, which was of sandstone, re
moved, and the work was commenced
yesterday. This morning, while ten
men were detaching the stone from
the top of the building, an immense
mase of it suddenly gave way, carry
ing with it one of the workmen, a
colored mannamed Prince Harris. It
fell upon the roof of the front porti
co of the hall, and in a moment the
portico waa in rains and Harris was
lying dead among the debris, horribly
crashed and mangled. He had stated
,to his brother workmen early in the
morning that he dreamed the night
before that the wall fell and he was
killed. They advised him not to go
to work, but he insisted upon doing so.

Toombs on the Negro.
The Black Race, He Says, Will Die
Out Because lt is a Scrub Race.
The Atlanta Evening Journal pub
lishes an interview with ex-Senator
Robert Toombs on the future of the
negro. They are his views as they
would have been given in the North
American jRcvicioa&d not bad health
prevented the preparation of an arti
cle for that periodical.
He says that Li's speech on slaveiy
in Tremont Temple, Boston, is as true
to day as it was then and will be for
all time. The negro race is au infe
rior race. Ho was so created, and if
God bad not intended to make bim
inferior to the white man He would
never have created him black. All
history shows him to be incapable ol'
governing himself. He cannot, there
fore, govern countries or anything
else. The position of the Kev. Dr.
Haygood that the two races must rise
or fall together, he says, is very fool
ish. The negro race is dependent on
the white for everything. He does
not think they can be educated. It
will be found in the end that as a
race they are uneducationable. He
says education is increasing crime
among them. A negro is out of his
element at the blackboard. Hie natu
ral home is the cotton patch and the
plow. There he has alway? done best;
there he will always do best.
As to the future of the negro race

jst thing in the world, he will die out.

)eople in this country. The negro is
lying out as a race; he is bound to
lie out. That is what will become
if him. It is the history of all infe
ior races, and here is the broad dis
inction. The negro race is a scrub
ace; the white race isa thorough
>red race. In time the scrubs are
ound to die out, but the thorough
reds live on to procreate the species,

Grand Display Spring & Summer Goods

opened ?nd are now ready to exhd.il our COMPLETE LINK OK SPRING AND
SUMMER GOODS. AU Ol'which are entirely new, having been selected with the
greatest care, and purchaser.-..will find it to their interest tn pay us a visit of inspec
tion. 1 om satisfied that I can safely say that I have the Largest Stock of Goods ever

for 8 and 10c.
PIQUES for 5c per yd. that sold last season lor 8 and 10c.
WHITE LAWNS for 8c that sold heretofore at 10 and 12k, and a real nice
quality for 10c that nevei sold for less than 15c heretofore.
I have a magnificent line of WHITE GOODS, and at astonishingly low prices.

Nainsook, India Linens, Plain and Figured Swiss, <tc.

Q TT/^TT'? - Our large sales on Shoes during the past winier caused me to
O?VyJliiO?-select with more care and lo buy a much larger stock than ever
before. Our stock of ladies' Zeigler Shoes is very large. It is useless to say anything
in praise of these Shoes, as they are too well known. Afier selling them for several
years, I have yet to hear of a single complaint about these Shoes. We have other
Shoes that are cheaper, that we guarantee, and if they prove inferior you can get an
other pair in exchange by simply returning them to the Store. We can please any
one in Shoes.
Quite a large stock of Gen/s' Clothing, Hats, Stationery, Saddlery, Fancy Groce
ries, Cooper's Ware, Crockery, Hardware and Tinware at very low prices.
Every promise and guarantee made by any salesman in my store will be strictly
carried out. My stock is composed of entirely first class goods, bought aa cheap as it
is possible to buy them, and I can afford to sell them with very small . profits, so I
know that 1 can sell an entire bill as cheap as any house 'in -Augusta can sell the
same goods. It is impossible to give anything like a correct idea intm'intd^ertisement
of the immense quantity, superior quality and the astonishingly low prices^/ our
stock ; we therefore request that you call, examine and be convinced of the truth of
