Trip to Columbia.
Acting on medical advice we visited
Columbia last week, for the recreation
promotive of bealth. -. The advice was
good, the trip beneficIal. There are va
rious ways of getting to that city, and
the traveller uses his vption whether he
iakes paisage by railroad, the people's
line, known as shanks mare or footback,
private conveyance, &c. We chose the
former as the most expeditious, easiest,
cheapest--complimentary ride-and the
best. The reader is forced to exclaim
what a sensible man, editors do know a
thing or two after all, even if running "a
little country paper, or a one-horse ma
chine." The ride was quick and refresh
ing, and the visit though slort, pleasant
ly interesting, and we returned with
lively recollections of the warmest of
welcomes, and the many kindnesses
showered on us. It was always thus
though in Columbia. Avoiding all scenes
calculated to excite. or disturb the se
renity of our mind-such as the general
assembly, &c., the time passed off pleas
antly in the re-union with old friends,
and the cultivaion' of new.
Columbia is improving, but not so
fast as might be wished just nov. In a
few years, however, she will take her po
sition as one of the first cities in com
mercial and manufacturing importance,
and -her waste places once more be built
up. One among the striking features is
the immense establishment of R. C. Shi
ver, the youngest and certainly the most
successful merchant of that city. It is
not our purpose now to give in detail a
description of this elegant dry goods
house, or of the rise and progress of its
energetic, youthful proprietor, but will
do so at another time. Suffice it, a visit
to and through Mr. Shiver's Store % ill af
ford much pleasure to our friends of the
up country, and we advise them to do so
on the first opportunity. As an evidence
of its prosperity, we feel at liberty - to
state that its cash sales for December
were over $10,000, and that an insurance
of $90,000 is held on its stock. Leaving
Mr. S. for the present, we review a few of
THE PEACE MAKERS.
And of all the modes adopted to main
tain or establish peace, the knock down
argument is the least to our taste. "Our
late unpleasantness" was brought to a
close by the hardest of blows, and now
we have peace it is true, and a consunm
mation heartily enjoyed, but at what a
cost ! The blows were too hard. Take
for instance, Sherman's burning. But
let him alone, he'll find the way HOME
where, the reader can easily imagine.
We all remember the big gun cast many
years ago, and which was styh d the
"peace maker," because of its frightful
proportions1 and the immense number
of human beings it was estimated could
be an,niluiyted at each breath of fire
from its ugly nozzle. Peace maker for
soothr, 'depopulater rather. and heart
breaker. With our old Prof. Schmnitt,
now roaming no one knows whero, we
say we "no like dese." There are other
modes, and all prferable to the peace
brought abootk by war. As a proof we
mentiou a few of the peace-makers with
wom we came:in contact on the recent
That eminent wholesale store dealer
Mr. A. Palmer, and hiis wholesouled
assistant and right, b and man, Capt.
Brown ; for their peace-offerings and the
favors shown, we cherish a lively re
membrance; may their :shadows never
grow less, and their substance iuc:ease.
Mr. Bobt. Uamilton, prime. minister
and manager of the Lanier House, a
first class anid elegant Resiaurant, who
supplied the Wants of onr inner man so
abundantly, will, accept our acknowl
edgments, and good e ishes.
Next in order. and in goodl order too,
we found our old fiend John Seegers. a
capital: fellow, lively and gez!erous. His
offering is "all setting,'' right side up
with care. Mmny thanks,~ John.
Capt. Heise and son John, also laid
us under obligations of the '-sweetest"
kind.- Their establishment is now on
Main street, and although not complete,
will soon be one of the finest confection
ery resorts in the city.
Nr shall we omit our particu'
friend, W. J. Duffie, in the book lin.
His establishment is a .handsomne one
and large; over its doors is the promi
neat sign of Duffe & Chapman, the
fontain head of our branch- concern
be. Their Columbia stock is exten
sive, and their offering very acceptable.
Last, though not by any means the
least comes Dr. E. E. Jackson, who in
his usual royal style made a prince of
us, treating us to the best-not in drugs
be it understood though. The Doctor
though ale-ing, is in robust health.
Who will not agree with us in saying
that the above are the peace-mikers. A
wholesale reconstruction follows such
kindneses. We will war- no more
Other establishments were looked
into and found in good condi,tion, among
which we menti'on'the dry goods house
of Messrs. Henry & M. Kinard. They
do a capital business.- Hardy Solomon
in the grocery line has a fine run.
While W. & R. C. Swaffield seem to sell
all the clothes which are worn in Colum
bia. We might -go on .in enumieration,
but want of space forces us to desist
antil another occasion. The beautiful
weather, the deep blue skies, the silver
moon, shining, twinkling stars, and
elaborate descriptions 6f the same, the
previling styles among the ladies,
which embrace the bend, the broad back,
the full breast (much fuller than of old,
and which may have something to do
with the -price of ootton) and from
hence dlownward small, a very collapse
:,. coparisn with the old, esteewed.
and gracefully rnunded full skirts, will
not be touched upon here ; nor the fine
get up of some of the colored represen
tatives with their sooty wives who take
to the fashions, like a -hungry cat-fish to
a grub worm. Nor the ride back,
with bundles, bales and boxes, which
the very polite c'nductor Mr. McBee
helped us through with, all these and
many others, with a hop, skip and jump,
we clear ourself of, and conclude by say
ing that we shall soon repeat the dose,
by visiting the city again.
Exchanges and Publications.
The "Riverside Magazine" for February,
opens with a fronti.piece by that established
favorite, II. L. Stephens, who gives in a
series of scenes the well known story of the
"Three Little Kittens that lost their Mittens."
Mrs. Weeks's story of "White and Red"
introduces the historic character" Hole in
the-Day," whose picture is given. F. R
Stockton, whose story of "Ting-asling" in a
former number has not been forgotten,
follows the adventures of the little rogue and
and his burly friend furilira, introducing
also five new characters, magicians of un
common readiness. Bensell's pictures, seven
in number, fit in with the text admirably.
F. R. Goulding has a curious matbenjatical.
story. .Abby Sage, the welcome relater of
stories from Shakespeare, begins a new
series of similar stories from Chaucer and
others. Phcebe Cary has a poem; a short
paper on how to cut out likenesses, supplies
the mechanical element, and then at the end
of the number comes a very large mouthful
in the shape of a ten page story by Hans
Andersen, "ihe Dryad," atale of the French
Exhibition, which is published here simul,
taneously with its appearance abroad. It
has the fervor and fancy of some of Andersen's
best work. Published by Hurd and Hough,

for', Conn. J. B. Burr & Co. 1869.-This live
book, issued by the enterprising and successful
publishing house of J. B. Burr & Co., of Hart
ford, Conn., is one of those really valuable
works which from time to time burst upon the
pub:ic, and carry their publishers on to deserv

not only readible, but profitable, it mu-t find it
self in the hands of everybody. o'd or young,
who has ever been in New York, or expects or
desires to go, or who would learn the whole
C::untry by the pulses at its commercial heart.
Ninety,two separate chapters constitute the book
covering an amount of facts never before collect
ed upon the like subjects, and holdinr up the
City of New York as in a mirror, revealing its
worst and its best aspects at the same time, and
letting the reader into the secrets which have in
spired thesuccesses of its noblest men, as well as
lifiug the veil which hides from the observation
o, most, the reek ing sins and infirmitie of the
mighty metropo.is of America.

make it the special order for T1hursday.
In the Senate;' the New York Chamnber

'The Judiciary Committee reported a

DIED at Newberry C. H., on Sunday
evening, 3rd January, inst., Maj. HENRY
SUMMER, in the 60th year of his age. In
penning a brief sketch of the life and charac
ter of the deceased, the writer purposes to
avoid every thing like fulsome pan: gyr:e,
and to deal in simple truth ; for any thing
else would be inconsistent with that life
He was horn and raised in Lexington
District, and after completing his education
at the South Carolina College, chose the law
for his profession, and after being admitted
to practice, settled for a short time at Lex
ington Court House; soon after, however,
he removed to Newberrv C. H., where he
spent the remainder of his life.
To a man of his character, and disposition,
a literary life would have been far more
congenial. fnsuspecting, confiding, truth
ful and cotrscientious, he was poorly pre
par d to struggle with the world, and was
consequently often deceived, by what is
termed the sharpnes. of others. But,
though often deceived, he was never the de
ceiver; though betrayed he was never the
Although modest, and unassuming, he
nevertheless was frequently thrown into
public life; for a- t'me he represented his
District in the Legislature ; int many of the
political assemblies of the State, he was a
n,mber; and at his death held the office of
Register in BankIuptey. At the Bar, and
in public assenblies, he frequently spoke,
and'his speeches were always to the point
clear and forcible.
During the esi.tcnce of the Lutheran
College at Newberry, he was one of its
most ardent friends; was the Secretary to
the Board of Trustees; and contributed all
in his power to make it succeed.
But while his profession and public du
ties pressed heavily upon his time, he would
take some moments for literature. He con
tributed many valuable articles to the
Southern Review; and recently wrote a
series upon the uses and importance of his
tory, which he intended perfecting and pub

For his friends, he had the strongest at
tachment., and the tongue of slander never
had the effect to wean him from them ; the
friends of his childhood and earlier years,
were his friends through life, and at his
death. Those, who knew him best, loved
him most; and it'is not s.tying a little for
him, that he enjoyed the esteem, confi
dence,"and friendship of those great and
good men, Judge O'Neall, and Chancellor
Job Johnstone. Differences of opizion,
and heat of political strife, bad no effect in
3lienating him from those he loved ; and
while he was free, frank and candid in ex
pressin, himself, lie was kind and tolerant
towards those who differed with with him.
All'his public duties he performed faithfully,
promptly, honestly aid conscientiously, and hit
private life was one of the strictest purity. But
the crowning beauty of the whole is, that ht
was an humble and devout Christian. He en
deavored to shape his course through life by the
teadhiugs of his Divine Master, and faith in hi,
atonement was his stay and staff in death A
day or two before he died, feeling assured, tha1
his stay on earth coold not be long, he called hi:
wife and children to his bed-side, and after tell.
iag them calmly, that probably before the set
ting sun be might be called hence, he spoke o
the comtorts of his faith:-he knew in whom h.
had trusted, and added "I see my way cieurl)
before me-I fear no evil."
His end was peace-his death triumphant
what a befitting: close to a life so well spent
