To New York Advertising Agents.
Two-thirds of the propositions made us by
advertising Agents at the North are on such
low terms that it is impossible to entertain
cr accept them The character, too, of some
of the adverti6emews are objectionable. As
we are almost daily in receipt of some such
propositions, and neither have the time or
inclina,ion to answer and state reasons for
not zecepting, we make the notice, that when
no attention is paid to letters of this kind,
the gentlemen will understand that their fa
vors are not appreciated, for one or the
other ot the following reasons : First, that
-with one or two exceptions-we have been
egregiously taken in in the past, and here
after quarterly in advance payment must in
variably accompany an order; and second,
the advertisement must be unexceptionable,
gift concerts, &c., will not be published. tf.
Vick's Floral Guide.
Unce more are we indebted to Mr. Jas.
Vick, the great Rochester Florist, for
a copy of his Floral Guide, for the
year 1873. It is most artistically de
signe, and beautiful as a specimen of
typogr..;hy, aid we are pleased to say
that it wiil be issued hereafter four times
instead of once a year, and at the very
small price of 25 cents. Send 10 cts.
for a copy, and see what this beautiful
Guide contains, and the valuable infor
mation given by Mr. Vick, who is expe
rienced in all that relates to landscape
gardening, fruit, vegetable or flower cul
ture. Address Jas. Vick, Rochester,
Lessons from Adversity.
In the burning of Chicago the Donel
son pavement, made of blocks of wood,
cemented, was proved a complete failure.
It burned readily, and was a terrible oar
to the work of the firemen and the pas
sage of citizens. And so the Mansard
roof, in Boston. It will not do, and the
Boston authorities have prohibited them
in the future. What good will come of
the epizooty ? Shall it result in a better
hygiene for the noble and useful animal
on which it now preys? And will it
lead to a greater economy in steam and
motors generally ? Such for instance as
the dummy engine for street cars, &c.?
An Interesting Hymenial.
The Jun,ior of the Abbeville Press and
Banner gives a pleasant account of a re
cent finish of or.e of Cupid's little jobs,
in the marriage of Mr. Robert G. Wil
liams of Newberry County, to Lidie S.,
t'..- accomplished, beautiful and only
daughter of Colonel Robert McKay, of
Greenville. The marriage ceremony was
performed in the Baptist Church of
Greenville, by Rev. Dr. Williams, and
the setting of the picture around the
fair bride and happy groom was made up
of twelve fair and dazzlingly dressed
bridesmaids and as many weli-appointed
grooms. After the ceremony at the
Colonel's, the occasion is described as
being as happy as a marriage bell, and
the bride beinzg the only child, no ex
pense had been spared to render it so
The number of bridal presents was very
large and in good taste.
The junior of the 'Press' is right in
being happy, and the newly wedded pair
will accept our felicitations.1

We Ask for Information.
Weare not positive, but believe that
in Charleston and Columbia, and other
cities, Express packages are delivered as
soon as they are received. B-y dloing this.
the Company are indeed express car
riers, otherwise they are not. Mr. A.j
has a package of perishable goods sent
him by his friend B., which, to insure
qiuick transit and immediate delivery, is
sent by Express, but he is not looking
for or expecting anything, and having no
bineflss at the depot, knows not of the
package, and it may be days ere he does,
and the consequence is it is valueless.
(lr documents of important character,
which demand immediate attention are
sent through the same channel--but a
day or two elapses, and valuable time is
lost. A. may stroll down about the Ex
press Qflie and by accident get the ar
ticles in time, or he may not and there
ly sustains a loss. The Express Compa
ny- is no more expeditious then than the
slow andI sure hecight. We have heard
of no complaints, and don't know whether
any body's oranges have rotted, fish havhe
spoiled, or papers been deiayed, and
don't know but that everybody is in 'he
habit of going or sending to inquire if
there is anything by Express, but we
do want to know if the Company, through
its agent, is not bound to deliver to, or
notify, persons, when anything conies
for thetm. In the same way might Tele
graph operators keep all comnmutications
till called for. One is as reasonable as
the other. We ask for information, and

Death of Horace Greeley.
This distnguished representative of
the Eepublican pa tv departed this life
last Thursday nihli. Mr. Greeley was
a strong advocate of philanthopic theo
ries, and a vigorous worker in the cause
of the humanities. As our readers are
aware he had b--t returned to his edito
rial duties from an unsuccessful presi.
dential contest, when he met with the
loss of all lo.sses-that of a devoted wife.
Mr. Greeley was a liberal and kind
hearted man. And though he had
crotchets and made errors in his jour
nalistic life, they were errors of judg
ment, which many men make. Ilis arge
heart was generally right. Th1:e liberal
principles he lately songht to bring to
practical solution, werc wor.hy of suc
cess, but they failed, ai d1 w i,h their
defeat'has p.,.J a y their les'r.
Mr. Greeley vas the ch.anpion of the
argument is defence of tmancipation,
and the treatment he received at the
hands of the colortd peIl,le doubtless
added much to the g-ief caused by the
death ot hjii wife. IL was a trenchant
writer and had retaried to his paper
with a chastened and liberal s,.irit, but
his race was run.
This eminent educational institute,
situated in the beautiful Roanoke Valley,
in the town of Salem, on the Atlantic,
Mississippi and Ohio Railroad, and at
the terminus of the Valley Railroad, now
under contract, offers advantages to the
student. Salem is a refined, intelligent,
moral community of about 2,000 inhabi
tants, surrounded by charming moun
tain scenery. The temperature of the
country is equable, and its mineral wa
ters healthful; the soil fertile and exempt
from the causes of malaria.
The 20th session of this College began
on the 4th September. The session is
divided into two terms, of five months
each. Students tay enter at avy time.
The expenses for a session of ten months,
which includes board and tuition, is
The College has a superior faculty
with Rev. Dr. Bittle at its bead ; a well
appointed Atheneum; Library contain
ing 8,000 volumes; Chemical and Philo
sophical Apparatus and Cabinet of Mine
rals; Literary Societies, &c. A Normal
Department for instructi)t in the Art of
Teaching has been established. Book
keeping and penmianship with all the fa
cilities for a good business education are
taught. Such studies as the student
elects may be pursued. The course of
studies at this College is of a high grade.
The universal prevalence of this dis
ease and its rapid spread, proves conclu
sively that it is an epidemic. A strunge
form of catarrhal influenza, or influence
of the weather. While in some places
it is presented in an aggravated epidem
ical form, in others it is sporadic. An
epidemic may or may not be contagious
The wide sweep of this disease, and
the singular forms, aggravations and
modifications which occur in the devel
opment of the malady, seems to warrant
the opinion which obtains-and that is
that the affection is caused by the disa p
pearance from the atmosphmere of some
one or more of its elements. The
mild or virulent phase of the disease in
different sections may be induced by this
atmospheric vicissitude as it happens in
greater or less degree, and disturbing
the health of the entire animal kingdom.
It is reported that several deaths have
occurred among men who have, while
treating their horses, permitted the exu
dation to get into wounds upon their
hands. The :ratter from this distemper
is said to be poisonous to the human
system. If this be true, too much care
cannot be exercised.
Moore's Rural New Yorker says:
"Saline medicines are regarded the
most useful in this disease. Either of
the following will answer: Chlorate of
potash, muriate of ammonia, or hypo
sulphate of soda. As an anodyne to re
lieve the cough, fluid extract of be!!adon
na may be added. The propc'r dose or
either of these medicines may be rubbed
up with two or three ounces of honey
or molasses, and these poured into the
mouth from a small bottle or placed on
the tongue with a spoon. Given in this
way the medicine will be readily lapped
up and easiiy swallowed. But little trou
le is required to give it, and no danger
of getting any mnedicine in the trachea
will be incurred by t his mecthod."
A. Liantard, V. S., says: There is in
the treatment of the present epidemic a
very essential point to be taken into
consideration wrhicha relates to the hygie
nie. attendance of the affectedl animnals.
!est, as soon as possible, is e-ssential, as
if the animal is kept at work the disease
will progress and prove fat-il in a few
hours. This is a part of the treatment I
think veterinarians ought to insist upon
very firmly. Good hygiene by the pro
per and comfortable tetmperature of the
stables, blanketing according to the con
ition of the ambient atmosphere, banda
;ing of the extremities after a good rub
bing: wiping of the nostrils with vine
ar and water is also recommended.
Leeding of course requires much atten
tion and careful handlinag. and warm
gruels, scalded mashes, and Oats mixed
with llaxseed may be used. In a few
:ases roots, carrots, turnips or fruits
nay be given, according to the condi
tion of the bowels. I would also high ly
recommend proper ventilation, cleaning
:>f the stables, of manure pits, wvhite
washing of the stables, and the free use

A Change for the Better.
We are rejoiced at seeing that some
reforia is being etfected. It is the inau
guration of a better time, we hope. It
farebodes something. At the last ses
sion 5>7 pay certificates were issued.
This legislative body commences lop
ping off attaches. Tn the Senate they
have agreed upon fifteen: 4 clerks at
$5 a day each; 2 messengers at $2 per
day, each; 4 pages at $1.50 per day each;
five laborers at $3 per day each. In
the house fhey have agreed upon 24.
This is decidedly a mighty fall frum
56 7. Not as much as we would desire
to compare with the past, but it does
well and augurs well. It will be tle
saving of many thousand dollars. We
would, however, warn the honest mem
bers of each house. to have an eye out,
and see that the Treasurer of the State
be (tily warned of the numbers and
names. and that no additioual ones be
foisted onl then other tl an those ap
pointed. Keep yonr eye upon the wea
ther *ide of your ship of State, Conser
vatives and pure Republicans or some
one will ,lip upon your lee side. See to
this thing. Watch as well as retrench.
Don't cease to look out for the breakers.
There are other retrenchments or cut
tings down of salaries essential-to wit:

We would respect fully call the atten
tion of the genttlemte of the house and
senate to be fact, that too mouch is paid
to Auditors and Treaw:rers. Thte present
salary of thf Auditor of this County is
$700. That of the County Treasurer
will be this year $2500 commtlissions.
Weigh this matter :$4,200 for two of
fces, which any competent business
man in the County can fill easily, and
would willingly and gladly do, for two
thousand doilairs. Let us see: Thirty
two County Treasurcrs, paid at least
$65,000. Thirty-two Auditors paid at
least $54,000 ; aggregating $119,000,
when $64,000 will obtain the services of
thirty-two of the most competent men
in the State, men who would do the du
ty efficiently, ably and honestly. IIere
would be a saving of $34,000. As to
School Commnissioners, it could be done
for $10,00", easily ; leaving $22,000
clear gain to the State,--formning ain ag
gregate of $71,000, which could be ap- I
propriated to the more worthy andi
noble purpose of educating the blacks<

I;AlIRSVILLE, FLA , Nov. 27, 1872.
IATRIAS URE, EsQ., Newberry, S. C.
Dear Uncle: It becomes my painful duty
o convey to you and family, the sad intelli
ence ot thedeath of your son, John J. Barre.
le and my brother, -James D. Barre, were
ssassinated by a pary of desperadoes.
7hev were each shot at the same time and
lied yesterday-they were shot on last Sat
Lrday evening. I was telegraphed immedi
aely of the fact. My father, Win. J. Barre,
nyself and my mother, left immediately for
hem. Barrsvilic is 46 miles (private con
"eyauce) to Micanopy. When we reached
hem on Sunday we found them siuking rap
dly. John was shot in tha left arm and side,
trin entirely shattered, lie was hit with 7
)alls and shot; his arm was taken off assoon
is possible, but he sank rapidly until he died
)n Monday. His dying moments were
outhed by his relatives and friends, who
vere endeared to him by his many noble
raits of character. A braver, truer or no
ler man never lived. To you and family I
eg to offer my heartfelt sympathies in this
;adden and unexpected affliction, and to his
jeloved mother I would say that his last
vord was "mother", and his only desire to I
tay here longer seemed for his parents. Ile
iad every attention that could possibly have
)een given to him-the best Surgeons the
3tate could afford-and any and everything
hat could have been done for him was done.
Iy brother James was shot in the breast
vYith 9 balls-any of which would have kill
d him. I had John buried at the Lutheran
Ahurch near this place, in as nice manner as
ould be done here. There were many of
four old friends, who were here, who assist
d and did all they could. If you think bes:
L metallic coffin can be sent and I will carry
iis remains at any time to you all. I would
tave carried it to-day but could not get a
metallic coffin, aud could not have taken him
Pvithout one. Father was here and carried
him's remains with him. Any information
rou may wish in reference to the matter can
)e obtained from him at his house near Lees
rille, he will write you in reference to the
natter anyway. Write me at Micanopy for
my particulars you may wish. Why John
tud Jim were killed by these men I cannot
Ind out. They have escaped. I have offer
d a reward for their arrest, and have done
tud will continue to do all in my power to
,atch them. I will send, per Express, John's
;runk, and will also send a statement of the
ndebtedness of his estate here-for surgical
tid, funeral expenses, &c. I will pay,in fact,
iave paid all expenses.
John has been with me, enjoying himself
inely, since September. A few days before
lis death he left Micanopy fo: this place on
L visit, was met here and killed by a party
> regular radical outlaws, what for I cannot
;ay-no, nothio. Two nobler men thau
lohn and Jim never lived or died. May they
-est in peace!
I will write you again in a few d.ys. I
vould have telegraphed you when I found
rohn was shot, bat he positively fotbid it,
mnd begged that I should not.
