With this issue of the Herald my edi
torial connection ceases, and my talks
with its readers are at an end. If the
paper has at times lacked force and en
ergy, it was during the absence of its
senior or chief: on which occasions I
have remembered that silence is better
than indiscreet speech. I have not been
anxious to compromise him, and have
also tried to be reticent for the reader as
well, by avoiding words which are as
often idle and impotent as they are
abundant; and not unfrequently the
froth of conventionalism-"used to con
ceal the t;uth rather than to establish it."
In parting with our readers and the
press fraternity, I am pleased to say that
we have bad no antagonisms, no bitter
words, no heart-burnings. This acknow
ledgment may bring the verdict of weak.
ness,-be it so. To us it is a pleasant
It is to be hoped that the day is not
distant when there shall be more unity
and less disintegration-more sympathy
and less selfishness among the people at
large. But at this transition period the
editorial life has few charms.
With this brief valedictory, we bid
our friends farewell ; gratefully reiem
bering their patronage and courtesy, we
trust the same cordial relations may ex
ist between them and the present sole
editor of the Newberry Herald.
Respectfully and fraternally,.

A N6rth Carolina authority thus tells
what he knows about cotton ploughing:
He says that as soon as the cotton gets
arge enough to plow, he runs one furrow
is near the cotton as possible, in each
row, and only one. He then makes the
"chopper" stand on the side opposite
that plowed and chop the cotton towards
aim. At this season of the year, the
grass being young and tender, the hoe
takes as much of it up on the side not
plowed, as on the other. Another advan
tage is that by this process, the cotton
does not fall do.%n soi much, as when
plowed on both idcs. Anoth,r advan
tage is, you can "get back" for the %econd
plowing as soon again as in the old' way
of plowing both sides.
The bill lately introduced to grant
immunities, aid and encourage manufac
turing enterprises in this State, is already
showing practical and >eneficial results,
as we see by the Phon:ix, that Mr. Davis,
Representative fron Yomk, introduced,on
Tuesday las:, a bill to charter a cotton
and woolen mill, to be known as the
Yorkville Manufacturing Company. It
gives authority to Messrs. James F.
Hart, T. M. Dobson, L. M. Grist, and
George R. Ratchford, as incorporators,
to establish a manufactory for spinning
and manufacturing cotton and woolen
fabrics, at such locality in York County
as they may decide upon. The capital
stock is fixed at $800,000, in shares of
$100 each. Authority is given to com
mence operation as soon as $50,000 shall
have been subscribed. Notice of the
introduction of the same bill was also
given in the Senate. Another bill, to
incorporate the Edgefield Cotton and
Woolen Company, has also been intro
duced into the Senate.
The facilities for manufacturing pur
poses in this county are considerable
and we suggest that our enterprising cit
izens consider the question. Nothing so
materially, largely and rapidly builds up
a place as manufactoties, and it is to be
hoped that the favoroble opportunities
now presented will be made available.
It will be eemernbered that the bill al

They have entered upon and discharged,

ties Incumbent upon themf, and woMl give
the result of their long and protracted labor,
in as few words as possible, and as theirI
duty to their country will admit.
The County JajI was found in a very inse
cure condition, and should at once be re
paired;--the prisoners-in confinement seemed
to be well cared for. The store in the pas
sage betwen the cells, this Grand Inquest
would present as very dangerous. as all pris
oners have access thereto, and if so disposed
might set thejail on fire. They would fur
ther recommend that the ftncini around the
jail be repaire,l that a stable be built on the
lot, as the one no%v used is rented. They
find too that the jail fence in one place is on
the lands of '. BI. Smith, and as said fence
suits better the.e than where it formerly
was, they most respectfully recominend that
arrangements be madre in writing by the
County Commiksioners to estalih the line
at its present locatij.
The two Petit Jar- Lt-u:ms in the Court
House were fonatd scatily furnished and
not in a very cleanly conditi-su, they would
.therefore recommend that they be thorough
ly renovated and provided with suitable seats
and a table each.
The County Sheriffand Clerk of the Court
complain of not having sufficient room to
deposit old papers and records; this Grand
Inquest therefore recommends that suitable
arrangements be made by County Commis
sioners for that purpose.
The Poor House and tenants were found
in a better condition and living in more com
fort than has been the case for many years.
Complaint wasmade, however, by the keep
er, of not having sufficient house room, es
pecially for the sick; this Inquest recom
mends that the above be at once looked af
ter by the proper authorities; and that the
farm attached thereto, not being self-sustain
ing, as it is very poor ground, with the
fencing in a dilapidated condition, be placed
in proper repair or the same abolished.
As to the roads and bridges in said Coun
ty, this Grand Inquest hears complaints
from every quarter-this they present as a
great public nuisance and a very sad neglect
of duty on the part of the parties whose du
tv It is to look after the same. The road
working laws of the Co-nty, they most
heartily recommend, should at the proper
time, be strictly complied with.
As there is but one Trial Justice in town,
this Grand 'nquest respectfully suggests, that
the proper steps be taken to have one or two
more cotnp(tent Justices appointed, for this
they deem a public need, as many cases
which now appear on the Sessions Docket
could be tried in an inferior Court before in
telligent Judges, and thus save the County
an enormous annual tax for the support of
the same when carried to this Honorable
It has also been brought to their notice
that the Grand and Petit Jurors, as well as
the State witnesses for the last Term of the
Court, have never been paid; and further,
that the present incumbent as School Coin
missioner, Munson S. Long, is holding an
office both of profit and trust, after having
been convicted of an offence which, under
the lawrs of our Smate, utteriy disqualifies
him forever from holding the same; both of
the above are respectfully presented to this

A NEW ENTERPRISE. C
Seven years ago we adopted the plan of

travelling salesmen, in order to supply a
want long felt in the -outb, and that each

if not purchasing one of these indispensable
household articles The abundant success
of our enterprise thr :ughout the State2 of
Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee and Georgia,
and the universal fAvor wvith which our
Stores are re,-eived everywhere, convinces
us that in order to supply the continued
growing demand, nv must largely increase
our fosces at the Foundry ; hence we have
increased our daily manufacture of this one
pattern to thirty, and %%ill still further in
crease it to 51t if our trade contiinues to
demand it. Our salesnev, who will visit
you, are authorized to give the same terms
as though you made *the purchase direct

cessfully. It is ver; heavy ani made o-ly
of the best qualities of new iront so mixed
as to secure a togh, strong plate, which

Also, on the 22nd of January-, of the same
dreadful disease, Mrs. LURA C. L.ARK, wife

IIow sad is the record! An affectionate,
obedient, promising son, a loving, tender
mothter, unuited in tle, and not separated in
death. Who can fathtom thte providence of
God! Mrs. La C. Lark was the daugh ter of
Mr. Washtington Floyd, and was the only
surviving member of thaut fatmily, and an
amiab)le, interesting laudy. In early life site
tattached hterself to thte Bush River Baptist
Church, in Newberry Counmty, and from that
time lived in the enjoyment of the consola
tion~s of religion, antd up to thte tenets of thte
Chturcht of her chtoice, ad filled all thte rela
tions of life in an exemplary manner. In
her sudden, unexpeeted death, a great void
is left, which none but tie who titus visited
the bereaved and sadly afflicted family can
fill. To her itmmediate faumily the loss is
most'grievous, in thtat three te'nder childrett
are bereft of a fond mother's care and loving
sytmpathy, for intdeed it is said with truth
that "nto love like tmother love ever wvas
known." Great is their loss. And tlte hus

lhinm, to be thtua doubiy bereft, of a tettdcr
wife, his life compantion, the .shater of his
joys, the sy mpathizer of htis cares, and of a
promising son. P'ast finditng outt are theI
w~ays of God; He givetht antd lie taketh
awny. bttt not without a pturpose; that ptur
pose is bey ond our un'derstattding, and thap
