In addition to our club rates, published

A Happy New Year.
With this, the first No. of a r.e vol
unie, the lcraild gives greeting of a hap
py new year to its numerous readers.
To those who have stood, shoulder to
shoulder, by us from the beginning to
the end of the :ear just closed, and have
sustained us both by kind sympathy and
a material aid, we feel very grateful, as
well as to those who have but lately
ranged themelves under our banner.
We would have them all, and as many
more as possible, to travel with us an
other year's journey. The Herald has
had its troubles and difficulties in com
mon with its readers, the political and
social horizon has been and still is, ob
scured by dark and thre&'ening clouds,
but let us all feel that there is "sunshine as
well as clouds," and put on a stiff upper
lip. Never say die! Hoping dear read
ers that we may still be "right side up'
in January 'CS, we wish you a Happy
Our New Volune.
The present is the first No. of the new
volume for 1807, and the reader who is
not already a subscriber will be reminded
that now is the time to subscribe-the
beginning of the year as well as of a
new volume. A reminder is also given
to the reader whose time if not already
expired will soon expire, to be punctual
n renewing with the cash. It takes a co.:
sideraile amount of cash subscriptions
to bear us through with the publication
of our paper comfortably and with
satisfaction, and when so many lag be
hind as has been the ca<e in the past
year we are necess-arily more or less
crippled. We trust therefore that our
books for the present year will exhibit a
healthier condition, both in z1umber and
in quality. Don't wait reader for dun,
or cross mark, or anything of that sort,
but pay up your back dues, and renew
with the cash, and now is the time.
The January 1st No. of this welcome
visitor is at hand. The present No. in
point of typographical execution is far
ahead of its predecessors, and we are
pleased to see it in a new and much
neater title cover ; the old one did not
suit our fancy at all, but the literary
excellence cf its inside made ample
amends for any fault of the outside. We
commend the Galaixy to all lovers of
good reading. Subscribe for it either of
the publishers, Messrs. W. C. & F. P.
Church, 39 Park Row, N. Y., or of
Messrs. D)uffie & Chapman, Newberry.
Tn our last issue we alluded to the adl
jourmunent of the Legislature, and the
amount of work which had been done by
that body. Upon examining the list of
acts passed. (ninety-seven in number,)
we are surprised to find so small a num
ber of them o'any general in:terest. A cts
of Incorporati,m, or amending former
corporations preponderate in this list.
Local Legislationt seems to have been the
chief occupation, while measures of great
and general public interest have been ig
nored or rejected. The propositions for
the relief of the people were all defeated.
The Courts are now to have their r-egu
!ar course, and wvoe to unhappy debtors.
With heavy taxes to pay in addition to
their own liabilities, they are between
"the upper and nether mill stones."
The Governor re-conimnmed the abo!i
tion of imprisonmont for debt, an ame-nd.
mnent of the insolvent law, so as to dis
charge debtors from their debts, upon
making a full surrender of their pro;orty
and effects, also a homestead law, all of
which were defeated by a small majority.
It is very stange, thnat, while our coter
minus States, North Caroina and Ga.,
have both enacted laws, which are now
of force, for the relief of the people, our
Legislatujre should do nothing on the
subect. Arc our people in a bc tter con
dition than the people of those States y
D)id they make greater sacrifices during
the war, or lose a larger amount of prop
erty by its results? ,We have always be
lieved to the contrary.
A fearful responsibility rests upon
those, who, in the face of all the cir-cum
stances which surround us, have brought
the people to so sudden a reckoning.
Overwhelmed by embarrassments brought
upon them by no faunt or act of their
own, except an honest adherence to
what they believed to be right, and obe
d ience to thme demni: ds of the Govern -
ment, they are now at 'ince called upon to
pay their debts, even though it takes
their last farthing and turns thenm an-I
their f:unilies out of doors. A little time
to recover their losses, a little br-eathing
spell, after the stoi-m of wvar had passed,
spreading desolation on every hand, was
al the people asked. This has been
denied them, and they n' ill have a reckon
ing with those who have thus brought
still (lecher distress upon them. We are
glad to know that our own Representa
tives can render a good account of their
RuaoR.-It is rumored currently on the
street, and we believe that the rumor may
be relied on, that one of the candidates for
Sheriff, but whici one is not positively as
certained as yet, was on yesterday elected to
that very desirable and honorable position.
As soon-as the fact is established as to who
the fortunate individual is we will make
APoLoGY.-Our readers;must excuse the
appearance of the Ilerald this week, its
print is dingy, and l,ok: as if it had not
recovered from the dbsi :i+ion of Christmas.
The causes are many: intense cold, immense
snow, unusual quantity of nog~levil obstrep
erous, from the fact of having had a (lime
presented to him, pre-sm:I choked on a
turkey bone, foreman in swampo, and all
hands generally knocked into pie. We hope
by the "Middle of r xt wei' to be all
"setting up again."
Messrs. W IsKEMAN & WILnER-Have
laid us under obligation by a Christmas and
New Year's treat, such as is seldom enjoyed
by the press gang. It is not the first time
either that we have been so substantially
and handsomely remembered by them. It
is not our purpose to mention what the
present consisted of, for the express reason
that perhaps some one else contemplating a
new year's token to us might be in despair
in not being able to do so as nicely. Any
one locking over their stock of goods will
be surprised to cee the variety of good
things in the family grocery line so profuse
ly displayed by them. We advise the public
to call and be convinced, and if they go not
away satisfied, then write us down no judge
of what is good to eat.
Christmas week was a lively one here
abouts. The Thnder of artillery and the
rattle of musketry-alias fire crackers, rocks
ets, squibs, etc., was tremenjous. Dollars
and cents worth of which were burnt by the
boys in immense glee. The boys brought
out an old six pounder that used to boom
upon the ear during the days of the Confed
eracy. Her roar was terrific enough to
smash near $50 00 worth of glass out of
Messrs. W. & W's fine show windows.
The freedmen visited town in immense
numbers, crowded the streets and spent lots
of small change. They behaved generally
well. An immense fandango was given by
a popular sable Knight, which lasted, in a
jam, for 3 consecutive nights and day's,
whiskey awl pig, tobacco and ginger bread,
etc , circulating freely.
Our. Tows.-Our venerable friend, the
Charleston Mercury, in noticing a little
Buncomhe from Sumter, says "Blessed is he
that bloweth his own trumpet, for, verily,
then shall his trumpet be blow-ed," which
must be io, for having been born again, he
ought to know. Upon the strength of such
good authority we can safely blow our
town trumpet, and say that onr dear town
of Newberry is second to none in prosperity.
Her business is largely on the increase from
former years, and the town' improving in
every other respect. New buildings are
rapidly going up, new stores and new firms
constantly being proclaimed through the
columns of the Herald, while there is no
limit to the quantity of goods, wares and
merchandize in store. One glance in the
streets at the innumerable wagons which
block up every avenue would alone convince
the skeptical that Newberry is a town of
some considerable pumpkins, cert*inly next
to Charlestotn nnd Columbia in mercantile
During thme early holidays was bitter cold,
the therinomneter ranging from 25 to 30 deg.
on Saturday afternoon last it culminated in
a heavy fall.of snow, which con:inued nearly
all night, covering the earth to un average
depth of five inches. On Sunday morning
the scene was indeed charming, all external
things being covered by the beautiful sub
stance, rendering the perspective exceeding
ly picturesque. In some places everything
merging, with a slight difference of shade,
into one vast ocean of snow. The programme
for the day consists ofsleighing,snow-balling,
rabbIt hunting and sparrow catching, &c.

lorida. Mr. ALBERT MIOT. in the thitty
xth year of his age; a native of Charleston,
, C., but for several years past a citizen of
Raised under the religious instructions of a
ious mother, Mr. Miot was from his earliest
ears of unblemished moral character. It
as not until within the last five years that
e was led to feel the importance of personal
eligion; but for several years he had en,
>yed the comfortable hope that he had been
orn of the Spirit. Only about two weeks
revious to his death did he make a public
rofession of religion, by un iting with the
resbyterian Church at this place. Although
in very delicate health at that time, yet his
eath was not expected so soon. But the
ummons did not find him unprepared or
ause alarm. IIis faith w.is in the merits of a
rucifled Redeemer, and his hope strong,
ecause built upon the righteonsness of a
iivmne Saviour. IHence, without a fear, he
rould look beyond the grave, feeling that
ror him all was joy and peace. Truly his
;eitne55 and Ue$patcli.
