GOL.D-DIGGING.-We learn that con
siderable excitement with regard to gold
digging exists in-theneighbo~rhood of the
"Little MIountain" about st or seven
miles below the village, and the fever
seems to be extending fast through this
community. Some very rich specimens
of gold ore have been obtained from
lands owned by Mrs. Wilson, of Green
wood, and very thorough explorations
are now being made into their mineral
resources, under the supervision of Mr.
Cloud, an experienced and competent
metallurgist. The indicatio,ns we learn
are encouraging, and, we trust, will re
ward the explorists with abundant suc
cess. Nothing could be more opportune
than the discovery of a rich gold mine
in our District at this time, and it would
give a new impetus to the developement
of our resources, agricultural, mineral
and manufacturing.-Abbeville Press.
On Saturday evening a son of Andrew
Jackson, who resides at Centre Hill, near
Hudson City, N. J., was charged by his
mother with stealing twenty-five cents,
and the father, in chastising, had odfly
struck the second blow when the boy
sank downi and almost immediately expir
ed. The boy was but nine years old.
The grief of the father is intense at the
fatal result of what he' intended for the
boys reforwation. -A diversity of opinion
exists as to whether death ensued from
the severity of the blow or was the result
of the sudden terror which seized the
boy, as no marks of violence were visible.
Coroner Warren viewed the body and

MESSRS. EDIroRS :-While on a visit to
Madison C. H., Va., recenly, I- was d.
tained 24 hours at Gordonsville, and
being informed ~that many Confederate
dead were buried there, I, in company
with Rev. Dr. Handy and &v. H. M.
Linney, visited their neglected graves
for the purpose of dropping a tear of
sorrow over the resting place of. my
brave and honored countrymeri, a tear of
regret over a lost cause, and a tear of
sympathy for the relatives and -friends
of these heroes of the South.
We found these graves so much neg
lected, the head-boards so rotten, and
the marking so defaced, that it is already
impossible to read the names of many .of
them, so 1 thought it would be a good
work to gather the names of all the South
Carolinians I could find, and publish
them for the benefit of friends. In a
short time it will be impossible to find
any particular grave.

A dica, - beloved friends,-and may
posperity - attend your path through
life-arnd to-know this, will, be one great
pleasure of my subseq.uent days, w hich
ean be but few. For tarelve years I have
enjoyed the privilege of praying for your
peace, prosperity and salvation, and it
shall be my pleasure to continue tho'se
supplications, tbough far away. I trust
they may be reciprocal prayers-and
though separated in body, I trust there
will be communion of--spirit, until we
meet to commune together in glory.
One of the great calamities that befall
men in this life is, to have their peace,
their rights, and their privileges assailed,
broken up, and encroached upon. But
such is the disorder and corruption of
human nature, that we are often called
upon to endure these things. Such have
we been suffering for the last six years,
and yet the clouds of adversity lower,
and the. storm bests vehemently. Let
us still .be. patient ; "the clouds ye so
much dread, are big with mercy and will
break in blessings on your head." Then
cheer up my countrymen, the heaviest,
and fiercest storm that ever visited ~a
sin-stricken world, has spent its fury,
and a great calm has -succeeded. Trust
in the Lord, and he will bring it to pass.
The same gracious Providence that rules
the raging storm, governs the nations of
the earth and the passions of. meu. He
makes even the wrath of man ~to praise
him, and the remainder of wrath he
will restrain. I may not live to see it,
but some of you and your children, will
live in the day of great prosperity. This
the Lord can and will do for penitents.
Once more my friends,;a hearty-Fare
well-the hand that moves this pen and
the heart that indites this adieu, will
soon, yes, very soon, be still, and the
places that have known him, know. him
no more. But my prayers shall be in
your calamities, and God's own hand
shall wipe away your tears, and dry up
all your sorrows, and you again sit un
der your own vine and fig-tree, and none
to ma~ke you afraid ; for. these things

F[RE.-By'. A letter -to. Mr. W. W.

living in Laureus District, on the Jine
of Newberry, sustained a serious loss by.
fire; on Friday night, the 26th oIt., in
the burning of his dwelling, kitchen and
lumber h3use, together with their con
tents,. with only the. excepton of. his
cooking utensils, one-old bed anda quilt.
and the clothes in which he and .his
family slept. -, This is ainost.seHous loss
to Mr. Farrow, whr is. now reduced to
absolute want. He makes an appeal to.
Mr. Houseal to: endeavor if possible to -
raise a small subscription.in the way of
groceries, bedding and clothing, and if
ihere be any disposed to as;ist him, the
articls-contributed may be left with the
gentleman named, .who will recive and
for*sed the sgnie, TI is not vndntioned
kow the fire occurred.

The erJoyment ras huge, and in propor

the happy, choice comiany asserabled ti
d.us so high an- honor. .Leiving outbhe
long tramp to the creek, tn which out
legs suffered to an extent not conitem
plated, we would like to give a full des
ription of the time, the place, the jovial
spiits assembled, the fun and f, olic, the
number of fish caught, the coldness of
the creek water, the blue gills of the
working party, the cooking, the dinner,
and the enormous feeding capacity of the
whole company, but the number of other
"fish to fry" deny that pleasure. Suf
tce it to say, it was such a rare old tispc,
that the very creek took a livelier motion,
and the 'skeeters sang in unison while
put ting in their bills, to the merry tale
and laugh, and that little 'smile' of T. A's
nearly upset'old nature's gravity. The
dinner was thoroughly fishy in its charac
ter, with the exception of a yellow looking
compound which may have been better
to the palate than the eye, but we doubt
ed its adaptability to our stomach and
gave it a wide berth outside. sWith the
disappearance of the dinner, appeared a
shower of rain, the only dampor on this
occasion, when. the party took the return
tramp to the hospitable new mansion of
Dr. C.'s to wind up on melons.- Some of
the party that night dreamed of being
in the whaT'e fishery, and that they were
murdered and ship-wrecked, and sol for
slaves, besides meetfi'g on dry land with
watery graves, superinduced by the in
troduction of that yellow conglomeration
aforesaid, which coming into contact
with the fish caused soch a violent sto
machic convulsion as to give'these unfor
tunates an attack of fish on the brain.
