The following highly important Cir
eular A Ill explain itself:
COLUMBIA, S. C., July 14th, 1869.
SiR : The Executive Committee of the
S. C. Agricultural and Mechanical So
ciety, having made the necessary ar
rangements for the annual fair to be
held in Columbia, on the second Wed
nesday in November next, now appeal to
their fellow-citizens to make the move
ment a success.
The development of the material in
terests of the State is conceded to be a'
matter of ignportance. It concerns the
dignity as well as the general welfare of
the people whom we represent that all
that all their resources should be fully
evoked.' Ve.have broken fortunes to
retrieve; reined industries to revive,
and a just influence to regain. To ac
complish this end, the necessity is upon
us, to move out upon the - industrial
arena and secure the reward of Energy,
Skill and Activity.
As a means to this end, citisens of the
State representing that portion of its
capital and intelligence devoted to in
dustrial pursuits. feeling that these in
telests are inadequately represented in
the present State government, (hence
the greater necessity to co-operate
among themselves) have formed an Ag
riculttiral and Mechanical Society and
established annual fairs. Its Executive
Committee, carrying out the order of
the Society, have arranged a premium
list and provi'bd for the annual fair.
lut one thing remains to be done.
Under the present regime, the Society
expects no aid fron the State treasury ;
hence the necessity devolves upon the
Committee to call upon the , ftend; and
members of the Society to make the re
quired contributions of money, and the
committee feel sati"fied, that the plan
propo-ed for raising the oecessary funds,
will meet the approval of those con
corned in this important movement.
The Committee will spare no efforts
to make the first annual tair of the So
ciety in all respects useful and cred
itable. They have invited a distinguished
speaker to deliver an address, they have
prepared a liberal premium list ; they
hve'arran e4 to have suitable buildinga
and-grounds prepared, and it will re
main .for the contributors to complete
the work thus-aliciously begun.
To provide the necessary funds the
following_srheme has been adopted, and

The high:excitement which has pravailed

tangible form, when 210 Winchester riles
with necessary ammunition arrived at the

some fifty negroes, appeared in Edgefield

TOURNAMENT AND BALL.
On the first of September, there will be a
grand Tournament at Glenn's Spring, which
will be followed at night bly a coAume-ball.
The.ocession is looked forward to by the
young-Knights of that neighborhood ; the
bright-particular stars; . the ladits, and the
gets with grea anticipations of a .perfect
success, while the preparations for both the
tilt and the,a: arc earnestly carried on.

Gendse Spring .Our Trip Home The Next
We arrived at home unexpectedly on
Thssday last, without an opportunity be.

corresponldenlce began at Cherokee Spring.
A sojourn of about twelve days at that
place proved of great benefit to -us, but a
restless feeMug which promnpted changes in'
duced us to try the Glenn's Spring. A few
days there evidenced beyond all doubt, the
effcacy of that water as a remedial agent in
our case. For liver diseases and dyspepsia,
the Glenn's Water cannot be excelled- and
we would not be doing "unto others" in
accordance with the divine injunction did
we not say to the afflicted, broken down,
emaciated dyspeptic, go there and be
healed. A number of chronic cases this sea'
son have already been brought away from
death's door almost, and now are able to
take their places among men once mote.
The case of Dr. J. D. Bruce of- Newberry,
who many of our readers recollect, left here
In a most precarious condition, is a remark
abli proof of-the virtues of that water. His
many friends will be glad to learn that he is
recovering his health.
The season there is just fairly opening, and
it is expected that a pleasant and lively
company will fil up the cabins and hotel
soon, and just here we would advise all who
think of going, to be on the alert before it
be.too late. A~few cabins are still vacant,
and may be haa on epplication to Mr. Aun
derson, the proprietor, who we'- are pleased
to state, we found a very cjevar -and oblIg,
ing gentleman Double cabins are $50, sin'
gle, $25 the season, and board at the hotel,
with good fare, $40 per- month. Private
'boarding at a distance of three quarters of
a mile from the Spring, at Mrs. Bobo's, may
be had for less. Mrs. B. is an excellent
lady, kind and attentive, and always ready
to gratify the wishes of her guests. For
convenience, however, the hotel Is much to
be preferred, on account of easy access to
the water, while for economy and domestic
retirement, families will fnd the cabin life
much the best. So much for this.
rhe journey down in company with Mr.
Henry Halfacre and his lady, who kindly
gave us a seas in their rockaway, was a
rough one, owing to the roads taken, which
being short cuts generally, so,called, proved
to be the longest in the end, and the most
broken. How we survived the jolting and
rubbing, and escaped with whole bones is a
marvel. We can safely say that our friend,
H., has bad enough of short cuts, and will
try the old traveled thoroughfares hereafter,
as we will. "Jordan's hard road" cannot
be compared to some passed over on that
occasion. Another serious discomfort too,
was the difficulty along the route of obtain'.
ing a meal's victuals, feed for mules. or a
place in which to rest our weary heads.
The historical dutchman had he been one of
our disconsolate party, would have ex'
claimed "mine Gott, vat a country." The
invariable answer to the inquiry, made al
siioat with a tear in the eye, "can we stop
for the night ?" was "go to the next
house," and in every instance the next house
was inhabited by just such another s'peci,.

reputation at home stood A 1. We can safely
say though that in every instance they were
satisfied to rest in blissful ignorance, and
showed no disposition to entertain perhaps
angels unawares. About 8 o'clock at. night
we stopped at the last of the "next houses"
we intended hunting up that night; there we
determined to abide if it took all night, and
a ground lodging in the end. Mr. H. argued

New York Fashions.
NEW Tonm, August, 1869.
The high still splendor of August days
finds few of the devotees of Fashion in
town. Yet much fashionable dressin'g may
be seen daily on the streets and i the
squares and parks. Ladies seem to 'ron to
eceru this season. Never before was there
seen so much unbleached linen and un
bleached lawn and silk_ dyed to the un"
bleached linen tint-that is dyed in a
tint which is the very ghost of a color.
A new lace-gaipure-of the same indef.
nke-sbade is used to frim linen and lawn.
The silk suits are usually 4rinmed with
many rows of black velvet ribbon laid on
flat, or else with pinked ruches of the same
material as the dress-this latter being much
the most 'stylish. Vish black (rimm ing
large hoops of dead- Jet are - worn in the
ears, large dead jet chains about the neck,
or elke the inevitable,bit of black velvet
with jet and dead gold locket attached.
Often, indeed, both are worn as ladies have
an idea that their necks are made to look
doubly nice and white by contrast with the
black streamer. On the contrary they all
look as if they were well nigh choked; and,
besides that, black veltet is really too hot for
mid-summer. With self-colored trimmings a
profusion of coral is worn; ecru and coral
color go admirably together, besides ,coral
looks and feels so cool and sea-breazy.
The newest thing in the way of trimming
is to flounce light colored silk with sheer
mulin, plain or embroidered. This is a
very old style revived, yet it has all the
charm of absolute freshness.
We saw lately at the Metropolitan Far,
nishing Rooms a most: poetic evening coss
tame which had been ordered from New.,

"get me up something new and white .for

success, everybody present almost died with
envy when I sailed in," wrote the beautiful
blonde to the Metropolitan Furnishing
Rooms. And as the.toilette was as simple
as it was elegant, and as any Jady of ingenu-.
ity can make one from description, we will
The dress was of white ta'rleton, and had
seven skirts, rising above one 'another like
waves of surf, the under skirt was imade to
-trail considerably; every skirt was gored 'in
-front and very full in the back widths; the
bottoms were ficed with :blas white satin,
which facing grew broader:till It reached
the under skirt where- it was two fingers
deep; the low corsage was-of silk and was
very_ curiously made, with a peak in front
and behind, being laced up the back with
white silk lacings; the. side pieces of the
body were cut a yard.long and trimmned
around the ends and'tip the sides as far as
the waist with tulle raches; these 'were tled
behind in a carelet's kot and caught up 'as
ifby accident, but realy -by the highest art,
two of the upper skirts forming a gacefl
and elegant panier;-above the low corsage
and attached to it e#s a ye,ke of tarleton,
covered with tulle ruchings, so. as. to corn.

Sabbath in the Thompson Street Church
and the Methodist Episcopal Church,
the other Churches were closed on ac
count of the absence of their pastors.
Rev. Mr. Martin preached at the Thomp
son street Church in the morning. We
regret that we were unable to attend,
but learned that although he is a .younig
man. and- quite recently licensed, he
prechedl an eloquent discourse, wIth
much ease and grace of manner.
The services at the M. E. Church
were held under the guidance of the
Pastor, Rev. 0.. A. Darby, who, in the
evening preached to the children of the
Sunday School and their friends, a very
able and happy sermon)t. We were glad
to be presente.-id although we thought
the discourse eminently suited to the
chilren we were forced to appropriate
it many excellenit precempts to ourself
and hope our adult friends did so too.
The music by the scholars and teach
ers was good but. we could not be Ip
thinking that the tunes were pitched a
little too high for their young voices.
