Pd-Nic BT Tim FREEDXEN.-On Saturday
afternoon in company with several gentle
men who were invited guests, we repaired
to the beautiful grove in rear of Mr. White's
house, to attend a pic-nic given by the
Freedmer. of this place. The long proces
sion which had been formed at the Court
House and marched up Main-street, was al
ready upon the ground in open rank, form
ing two long lines of both sexes, arrayed in
all attire peculiar to that race. The white
guests, headed by one of the Marshals, were
marched through these open columns with
uncovered heads, and conducted to a stand
erected in the grove.
Mr. S. Bobo was then called upon to ad
dress the large assembly. He spoke
in true pat:iarchal style, with plainness,
earnestness and sincerity, laid down some
wholesome maxims for the government ot
their conduct, and urged upon them the im
portance of being constantly employed,
whether the coin,ensation was much or
little. "Six da.ys shalt thou labor and do
all thy work," was his theme, which he en
forced and i lustrated to the edification of
his attentive audience. The address was
kindly received *and loudly applauded. A
neat and well furnished table was set apart
for the invited guests, with attendants to
wait upon them, w hile the freedmen were
summoned with everythin. that could tempt
the appetite. The managers performed their
duties well, preserved good order, and con
ducted everything with propriety.
With this creditable exhibition of their
hospitality, good feeling and thrift, we hope
that the freedmen of this community will
not permit these social gatherings to degen
erate into licentiousness, by frequent repe
titions, but will betake themselves to their
respective duties arid engagements, and
show by their industry, perservance and
good conduct that they merit the esteem
and patronage. which our people are dis
posed to accord to them.-Spartanburg Ex
RESoUncES TO BE DEvELOPED.-There are
four distinct coal fields in the Piedmont
region, traversing Virginia and North Caro
lina-the Richynond, or tide water coal
field, crossing the James river thirteen
miles uest of Richmond; the Piedmont
coal field, crossing the App >mattox and the
Southside railroad in the vicinity of Farm
ville, Va, a.id ending near the James river
to the North ; the Dan River coal field near
the North Carolina line, and on the river of
this."natne; and the Deep River coal field,
on the Deep River, in North Carolina. The
total productive area of these four fields of
coal is about 5ou square muiles or 320,000
acres, which at 20 feet workable thickness
of coal, will produce 6,400,000,000 tons of
coal, or about one-third the estimated pro
duction of the Pennsylvania anthracite coal
fields. The proper and practical develop
ment of these coal deposits would not only
be of immense local value to the soils and
minerals of the interior of these States, but
would also command an export trade in coal,
and the productions facilitated by the abun
dant supply and use of coal. The primitive
*dimestone range is in close proximity to the
!Piedmont and Dan. River coal fields, con
:sequently liume may be produced for manure
.at low and available prices ; while Ravlini
.fire glay,s, plumibago, garnets, and soap
sto&tes are abundant, affording ample op
portunity for many of the most profitable
.. hI'e great "gold belt" of Virginia and
North Carolina also traverses the Piedmnon
districts near this coal deposit, and in in
'timate connection with the gold quartz are
-rich and valuable deposits of copper, silver,
lead, and sulphur.
RENs.-The subject of rents is one in
which a very large portion of our commu
ity is interessed. It is not only of impor
tance to the poor, or to those who own no
residences, but to the whole community
-to the real estate owners as well as those
who have no property. if rents are ex
travagantly high, strangers are prevented
from coming into our midst ; and parties
with small capital are excluded from engag
ing in business. Thus by establishing high
rents, a serious injury is done to the whole
community. If, on the other hand, rents
are moderate, and great inducement is
offered to the merchant, the mechanie, the
artisan, to settle here. They may do .but a
small business, but still they add to the re
sources of the city, for the miore enterprises
we have in operation, the more attractive
will the city be to our country friends. If
there are but few mn chanies or merchants
able to pay enormous rents, their work
and their goods must be proportionately
high, which will drive away trade and cuis
tom to more liberal and inviting comnmuni
ties. If, on the other hand, we have mod
erate rents, we induce compe'iton, we se
cure reasonable prices for go'ds and work,
and thus, trade which nouzld gro elsewhere
is stopped here, enriching all parties ami
improving our city.
We have been led into these riEections
by a report which has reached us to the
effect that for next year, rents are to be
more than double on the present rates.
We hope that this is not so, for it is ex
ceedinig difficult to pay~ the present exorbi
tant prices; and it can scarcely be possible
that our property holders would stand so
much in their own light and in the way of
the City's progress, as to sanction any
such unwarranted incRrease. -A ugustaPress.
A WONDER OF THE AGE.-We had some
thing to say recently about "the age of
wonders."Now we have something to say.
about "a wonder of the age ;" and this is a
colored baby, only five mouths old, which
speaks! The mother, who is a fine, healthy
looking woman, was out in our streets ont
Thursday morning last, and was quite a
centre of attraction. The baby is very
lively, and didn't seem to feel alarmed
about the crowd around it, only repeating
frequently, "I call daddy !" This amused
the audience very much, and they followed
the womau, wondering at this wonder of the
age, for such, indeed, it is.-Aug. Press.

OUR COTEMPOR A RTS.
As it may be agreeable to the citizens of
Newberry to read the expressions of sympa
thy manifested by the State Press toward
our town and its unfortunate sufferers in the
recent terrible fire, ns well as the kindly
courtesies of the "corps editorial" to our
humble se.ves, we publish to-day the follow
ing notices; regretting however, that the
list is not complete, inasmuch as several
were inadvertently lost or mislaid. We take
this occasion to renew once more our as
surances of heartfelt appreciation. We
have also received private notes from various
portions of the State, offering substantial
help-here a little and there a little ; fonts
of type from one, mallet, plainer, quoins,
shooting stick, etc., from another. Print
ing furniture here, and paper, &c., there.
Now, when we remember that the State
Press was almost entirely suspend%d, anni
hilated, impoverished during the war, an I
while the managers were absent in service,
the enemy not unfrequently knocked their
offices into worse than "pi," leaving thiemi
(the editors) poor, but "brave and proud."
we have only to put on record the fact that
the editors of the Press of S. C., wear their
hearts on the "right side of their shirt but
tons." But we cannot and dare not impose
upon them all, and with the help of neigh
boring confreres, a numrber of new cash
subscribers, cash renewals, and a little
healthy labor., we have improvised a snug
little office, (which we cannot help admiring)
with its neat little pulpit-like stands, made
of dry goods boxes! and clean floors and
polished windows. It gives us a cheerful
view of things, so we'll take heart, with a
larger start, remembering "that nothing
is troublesome that's done cheerfully."

LITTLE BOY KILLED.-We regret to learn
that a little white boy whose name we do
not know, accidentally shot himself io death
last week, near Frog Level. It appears he

him back, when the contents were discharg

INDECENCY -Our worthy neighbor over

lengthy an eloquent protest against the im
mode-t innovations of fashion in the shape
of "false calves" and '"tilting skirts"-a prox

alluded to these immodest contrivances, and
asserted that they would not be tolerated in

said but little of them, because we did not
fear to trust tne women of Augusta against

much virtue, too much modesty, too much
innocence here to tolerate the adoption of
th, s- wic%ed inventions of the age. We
doubted dr right, as an old hatchelor, to
discu,s this subject; hut a friend has con

and our sense of ud-t orial dury convinces u.;
of our right to denounce them. Hence it is
that we join our brother of the Constitution

call upon the ladies of Augusta to sustian
the character which we here publicly assert
for them. Our mothers, sisters, wives and
daughters must be protected against this
insidious foe of virtue, coming in the comely
and fascinating garb of fashion. They will,
we hope. need no persuasive eloquence, no
ela borate argument, to co,nvince them of the
shame which lies in this evil doing We
reiterate our confidence in the virtue and
modesty of the women of Augusta. Despite

will frown down these rnor!ei inventions,

also to Augusta and Savannah.

and have an industrious and thriving peop'e.
Though depressedty.the effects, there are
energy and spirit enough in the people to
recover from that depression.
Now let any one examine a map of the
State and see the connection which could
be m ide ih the way suggested, and he must

nections ana the benetits which would re
