The Baltimtore Eye and Ear
This institution, which has now ac
:uird a national reputation, and to
vich patients are attracted from all
arts of the country, was organized
our years since under the immediate
~harge of Professor Julian J. Chisoim,
I. D., Professor of Eye and Eur Dis
ases in the University of Maryland.
?rof. Chiselni is a South Carolinian
> birth, and before moving to Balti
uore occupied the position of Professor
f Sargery in the South Carolina Med
cal College, and presiding oflicer over
he Medical Faculty. When the late
rar left his State in ruins, he was in
lued to become an adopted citizen of
darland. He came to Baltimore
vith' an extended reputation, and was
vited to accept a professorship in the
niversity of Maryland, and being
leted to the Deanship of the Uni
ersity, was put at the head of the
edical Faculty. From the known
eputation of Prof. Chisolm, as one of
ie leading oeulists of the United
tates, the Baltimore Eye and Ear
nstitute. became a success from its
-ery commencement. The last pub
ished annual report which we have
iefore us exhibits two thousand and
ine.y-sven patients seeking treat
ent at the institute. Of these, fifteen
unndred and eigthty-two were persons
aiffering from eye disease. and five

NEWBERRY, S. C.
WEDNESDAY, APR. 7, 1875.
A PAPEE FOR THE PEOPLE.
The Herald is in the highest respect a Fain
ily Newspaper, devoted to the inuterial In
terests of the people of this County and the
State. It circniate% extensively. and as an
Advertising medium offers unrivAlied ad
vantages. For Terms, see first page.
The demand for cheap things is
growing to be ar evil, and light
wlights and shoddy articles aie manu
factured extensively to meet this un
h.-althy demand. Were the evil made
to fall on the class of people who
ereated it. it would not so much mat
ter, for they deserve to suffer, but to
so great an extent is the inanufacture
of such goods carried that the inno
cent are too frequently made the
victims. We are not uncharitable
enou,gh, though, to wish the seekers of
cheap things harm, but would rather
the practice could be stopped for their
sake as well as others. There is
searcely an article of food which is not
susceptible of adulteration, and to meet
the great want they are exte4sively
fixed up for the trade. If the cheap
man or woman would only reflect for a
mome nt that the cheapest articles are
adways the dearest and most worthless,
and determine to buy only the pure
and the best, they would soon find
themselves better off in pocket and in
health. Cheap thiugs and spurious
things are the bane of society.
The True Woman.
The best savings bank known is an
economical, frugal wife. She sways a
sceptre potent in its influence, and
which produces the best of results.
Happy ;s the man who possesses such
a treasure, and happy. the family over
which she. presides. There arc no
wastes about her household, for her
watchful eye and provident hands are
over and on all things, and the conse
quence is that peace and plenty abound.
And the world is full of such women,
too, making glad the hearts of house
holds and friends, and whose care of
little things as well as big help to
make success. It is their mission, and
wts so designed from the beginning.
Some may say all are not of this kind,
and we admit there are exceptions to all
cases, but we are not writing about
the exceptional ones now, but rather
of the household deities, the bright
particular stars who carry ligh. with
them, and who dispense joy and glad
ness and prosperity all around. The
wife and mother has a large, wide and
varied field to labor in. her dutids are
many and frequently trying, but if she
be the woman we picture she is equal
to the emergencies whi'ch daily arise,
aud comes out more than conqueror,
satisfied if her sacrifices give pleasure
to those for whom she labors. Thrice
happy is she in making others happy.
She wants no other reward than) "well
done." In the matter of eeonomy
how much she helps to build up the
fortunes of the husband, and how many
men to-day bless the fate which in
fluenced them to link their lives with
such womuen. The prudent, econom
ical, thoughtSl wife can see where the
shoe pinches and she comes to the
rescue. and ten to one she is able
to make things right which before
were wrong, and which looked gloomy
General Francis E. Spinner has re
siged his office of Treasurer of the
United States. This is what the Sun
says on the subject:
So old Gen. Spinner has stepped
down an;d out. and they say a fellow
from Indianapolis namned New is to be
his successor. Well, Spinner has been
there a good while, and has seen a
great man y changes. Hie camne in
with Lincoln in 1861, and why in the
world couldn't lhe have been allowed

with a great deal of human nature in
him; and having been a Hlerkimer
Demorat for about sixty years of his
life, he turned Republican and was
made Treasurer of the United States.
He has had splendid apartments in
the Treasury building for t.hese fifteen
years past, and a great deal of society.
Anig the women clerks of the de

on this side of the Atlantic ? Has he
the effrontery to have that idea about
Conlsttions, and hornets, and spider
webs suggested to him by our kings
and statesmen? The notion that our
President would go through the web
of our tough-wove Constitution as a

can entertain, he won't attempt to
sneak through its meshes. But won't
he go through it as a king, a royal
hornet with his sword for a sting ?
The interest in the Beecher trial is
culminating. Beecher took the stand
on last Friday. He refused to be sworn
on the Scriptures, nor did he choose to
affirm, but desired to take the oath in
the New England form:
"You solemnly swear by the ever
living God that the evidence you shall
give in this issue, joined between Theo
(lore Tilton, pl:intiff, and Henry Ward
Beecher, shall be the truth, the whole
truth and nothing but the truth."
- The New York Herald then goes on
Mr. Beecher, unlike any other witness
who has preceded him, and with most
reverential how, his eyes cast down,
answered, "I do."
If any of the auditors anticipated any
thing tremulous in his tones they were
disappointed. Once the reporter thought
he saw his uplifted hand tremble as he
took the oath; bat it was probably imag
ination. His voice was as unchanged
as his habit and his look, and when he
had dropped his hat, and taken from his
shoulders his cloak and thrown it aeross
his left arm, it was the same familiar
face that is seen on every Friday eye

CHARLESTON, S. C., April Ist, '75.
An augur, of fair weather, it is hoped,
is the da- ..ing of this lovely first of
April. In common with all other parts
)f the coumtry, Charleston has had her
share of rain, and a sunshiny day
brings to the surface everything that is
bright and cheerful. It will not be
trange then if everf man and his wife
turn out, and more particularly, as this
is Easter week, and the grand gala oc
asion of the Easter Fair of the Wash
ington Light Infantry.
It is pleasant to sojourn here when
aircumstances are favorable, for there
3re a thousand and one things to enjoy
in this City by the Sea. On a bright
day like this, King street is at its best;
the beautiful, tastefully dressed ladies,
the well arranged exquisite, the school
boy and girl, the ragged urchin, the
himney sweep, the organ grinder and
his monkey are all out to make the
most of it, and added to these the dis
play of bright colors in the windows
%nd doors of the dry goods houses, the
tempting show of nice and pretty things
in the candy, fruit and toy shops all help
to make it a panorama of wonderful
beauty and attraction. The other busi
ess streets, such as Meeting, Hayne,
Narket, Broad and. Bay are not less im
portant, but they are on the heavy
order, and not at all like King, for in
this street the ladies principally con
gregate, make their dainty purchases
nd show off their charms.
We have so frequently expatiated on
the Market, the Battery and other
prominent points, that it might be well
to omit particular mention in this brief
letter, but an up-countryman can hardly
fail to experience a degree of ecstacy at
the sight of the former. The people
here, many of them, complain of the
scarcity of meats, poultry, &c., but they
have no reason to do so, and were they
to visit the interior and remain long
enough to undergo a hungry spell, they
would very soon change their tune.
Grumblers, however, exist everywhere,
and it is not strange to find them here.
It does one good then to stroll through
the meat market, and see the great
quantities of fat beef hanging from
hundreds of hooks, and the white
aproned, smiling butchers, with keen,
glittering knives, ready to serve you to
any part which may be desired. It is
: treat to see them cut a steak. And then
the veal, mutton, pork, corned meat,
sausage, &c., it is indeed a pleasant and
satisfying sight, and one might well be
excused for wishing as did the preacher,
when he asked a blessing, for a "greater
capacity." The vegetable market for this
season makes a good display; there are
no peas yet, but some of the farmers
saiy they will be able to pick this week.
We heard of a sale of peas yesterday,
the entire crop, at a price two or three
times greater than could be realized
from the same number of acres in cot
ton, the buyer taking all risks, the
grower only having4o pick as the pens
ripen. This is better far than cotton.
A visit to some of the truck farms is
a treat which should not be missed at
this season of the year. How well they
are laid out, and how carefully p)re
pared; there is no waste, no ugly fence
corners with wildernesses of briars and
other growth, no washes, no mud holes,
but everything level, clean, and every
foot in cultivation. On Monday we had
the pleasure of visiting the farm of Mr.
Mazyck Simmons, one of the best truck
growers on the Neck. He is a perfect
model of neatness, energy and liberality;
in this latter his example is worthy of
imitation, for he puts back on his land
in fertilizers in generous measure. His
entire farm is drained by ditches which
intersect each other -at every proper
point, and the consequence is that
drought does not affect him as it other
wise might. He has oodles of peas,
aeres of potatoes of all varieties, and
other things in like quantities, while his
strawberries are a delight to look at.
He of course is not the only one de
serving of mention, for there are many
others whose names we would like to
mention, but space forbids. It is said
that at least eighty acres are in straw
berries this season, and the picking is
A visit to the Atlantic Phosphate
works, in company with Capt. Sigwald
and others, satisfied curiosity if it af
forded no pleasure; it was a sight
worth seeing-th3 immense 80 horse
power engine, which propels the whole,
the piles of crude rock, mixed with
fossil remains, like quantities of sulphur,
the immenlse furnace burners, the crush
ing stones, mixing apparatuis, and then
the vast acid chambers, are wondlerful
in extent, but all these were viewed at
the expense of our olfactories, the odor
was villainous, and the effect of the acid
on chest and lungs severe. This recep
tacle of ancient bones and other more
recent collections was left without any
regret. The ridle there and farther up
on the plank road, with the exception of
the jolting, was quite pleasant, for the
season being in advance of our region,
the woods on either side were fragrant
with jessamine, shrub and other wild
lowers. But we must close, after a
brief remark or two, and to do so get
back to the city.
The W. L. I. Fair, alluded to above,
is in full blaze, it is continually crowded,
and is an affair which will long be re
nembered as one of the many brilliant
successes of this fair city.
Business here is not so brisk as it
hould be, and the depression is felt
verywhere. The South Carolina Rail
road Shops are only working on three
ourts time, while many other large
interests are reducing time, wages and
orce. This falls heavily on the class
east able to bear it-the laboring men,
md it is greatly to be deplored. The
lity Railways are doing well, the con
reniene and cheapness of riding mak
ng the large majority take advantage
>f this mode of transportation. Such
s. tm.e forc sofai that eole who
monkey have sought their boles, the
cheerful note of the sooty sweep is still,
and the l:dy shoppers are in despair.
Alas, how soon the scene is changed; a
few hours ago the picture was bright,
now the bea :tv is vanished, heavy
clouds, rain, wind, slop are the order.
This was the day we were to start home
ward, but we have had no peas nor
strawberries yet, and the promise being
held out that both will be served in a day
or two, we yield to the pressure and de
fer starting till after that happiness is
experienced. And here we close.

treasury begs a "crumb" to satisfy its
hunger. Will not some noble, gen

soon her advocates will be enabled to
exclaim, "The night is passing away,
behold! the morning cometh."
How many hearts were made glad
some few weeks ago when the various
papers heralded the news that some
gentleman of Pomaria had contributed
$5,000 for the support of the College.
Here and there was whispered the
opinion that the news was "too good
to be true ;" while some still think the
report to be a forerunner of its fulfill

My limited sojourn at Walhalla gave
me an opportunity to be present at the
Auuiversary Celebrations of the two
Literary Societies (Phrenakosmian and
Excelsior) of Newberry College. A
brief sojourner is not often so fortu
nate. The Phrenakosmian Celebration
came off on the 19th of March. The
introductory remarks were made by
Mr. C. W. Moore, of the Senior Class
in College. Mr. Moore is a good
speaker, combining the elements of
humor with sound logic. Mr. J. C.
Watkins delivered the annual oration
with a forcible and pleasant effect.
His subject, "Life is a Conflict," con
tained much practical food for diges
tion, and evinced a mind well-trained
and carefully cultivated.
The Excelsior Society celebrated its
16th anniversary on the 26th. Mr.
F. B. Doyle addressed the audience as
President, briefly surveying the past
trial of the society, and its present
condition. His allusion to the brave
members who fell in the defense of
Southern rights was peculiarly touch
ing. Mr. J. B. O'N. Holloway was
introduced as orator for the evening.
He based his remarks upon the sub
ject, "Life and its Aims." This young
man, though a mere youth, appeared
composed anid delivered his speech
with much credit and honor, not only
to himself, but to the society which he
The friends and former members
will be glad to learn that Rev. F. WV.
Conrad, D. D., of Philadelphia, has
kindly consented to deliver the Annual
Oration at the June Commencement.
Much interest is manifested, and bright
anticipations aroused. Doubtless Wal
halla will be thronged with those who
seek a participation in these exercises.
These crowds not only add to the in
terest of the occasion, bat inspire the
faculty and stndents with fresh hope
and greater encouragement.

DEAR HERAI.D:-I see in different
County papers that people are giving
accounts of their several Granges. This
has led me to give you a short sketch
of ours. 'Twas organized by Dr. B.,
lived a few weeks and "died the death,"
The Doctor had a hard time organizing,
as we were very dull and his time
limted. In the midst of the initiation,
some one knocked for admitta.nce, it
proved to be Mr. C., a worthy member
of the P. R. Grange. After he had
been "vouched for" by several members
present, the Doctor gladly admitted
him, tening us he would nowv give us
some illustrations that would teach us
better than all his words could: How
do you do, friend C., am happy to make
your acquaintance. Thanks, I'll assure
you the happiness is mutual. But
friend C., it seems as if we were old
friends, where have I met you before?
In place of saying in the Grange, Mr.
C. innocently answered, on the cars.
This was too much for even our dull
minds, and the good Doctor readily
joined in the roar of laughter which
followed. All parties took it good
naturedly, it being proved that Mr. C.
and the Doctor had met some months
before on the train.
Farming is progressing down this

weeks since, but the patch is now a

A LrrrLE DAUGHTER'S LETTER.
The following letter was found crumpled
in the hand of a French captain who
died on the field of battle, and was pre
served by a sub-officer of the 2d Regi
ment of Thuringia, on whom devolved
the task of seeing the dead buried at
Woerth:-"My dear papa,-Since you
went I have done nothing but think of
you. I am so sad that I cannot see you
and kiss you every morning, but I hope
God will preserve you in health and
safety, and that you will soon come
back to embrace your little daughter.
I have been very good in order to con
sole mamma a little for your absence.
Adieu, my dearest papa. I send you a
thousand kisses. Your loving daughter,
Marauerite." Alas! how many Mar
guerites h:ave written such letters!
how many locks of hair stiffened in the
blood of the beloved!-how many ten
der memorials have been torn away by
the hands of the spoiler, or trampled
I into a hasty grave! How many father
less and motherless children have tod
died about in gore !-how many women
have died of fright, and of hideous
gashes, "lacing their silver skins."
MR. JEFFERSON DAVIS' TRIBUTE
TO JOHN 11ITCHEL.-The Hon. Jeffer
son Davis, who is on a visit to New
Orleans. sent the following telegram
to a meetirg held in Memphis, Tenn.,
to express regret at the death of John
Mitchel, the Irish patriot: 'Unable
to be with you, I send my heartfelt
sympathy in your proposed tribute to
the patriot and devotee of liberty,
John Mitchel. Together we strug
gled for State rights, for the supre
maey of the constitution, for com
munity independence, and, after de
feat, were imprisoned together. As
my friend, I mourn for him, and re
gret his death as a loss to mankind."
A woman rode home from a ball in
Boston on a recent cold night, and the
driver, upon hearing the door of the
carriage open and shut, supposed she
had alighted. He drove -away, with
out having got down from his seat,
and left his carriage standing as usual
outside of his stable after caring for
his horses. The woman, who had
been drinking freely, had not got out
of the carriage, and was found in it
the next morning frozen to death.

DEAR SIR: I have been informed
that there is always a brisk demand
I for good poetry I have long been
inclined that way having studied
in the best schools-You may have
seen my ode to the comet which
was published last summer in two
of our local papers-I send you a
piece which is in my best vane and
which is entirely at your service. I
should like to see it in your paper for

I don't know what your custom is
as regards compensation-neither do
I care; faiin is what I write for and if
I could by my own unaided efforts
reach the piniele on which Shakspeare
stands I would die content. Do you
not think that the unrestricted air of
the vasty prairie conduces to poetry ?

who had volunteered for the war or per

We are sorry to say that the Tribune
was hard-hearted and short-sighted
enough not to accept the offer of the
poet of the future and to tell him
to offer his "metrical merchandise"
(shocking) to some local paper. Now
we will show the Tribune that she is
not the only metropolitan newspaper
in the United States. We offer to
place him through our own editorial
influence on as high a pinnacle as
human aspiration can desire. The
"Comet" shall not be lost again like
"Encke's." for which astronomers have
been hunting for the last twenty
years; and we will be liberal and charge

SELEeTED FOR THE HERAL,D.
A Profitable Wife.
I have been married twenty-two
years. The first four years before I
was married, I began farming with two
hundred and fifty acres in the Blue
Grass regions, Kentucky. I handled
cattle, hogs, sheep and hiorses-princi
pally thme first two named-and lived, I
thought, tolerably economically; spent
none of my money for tobacco in any
way; neither betting a cent nor dissi
pating in any way, and yet at the end
of four years I had little or no money.
I then married a young lady of eigh
teen years of age, who had never done
any house-work, or work of any kind,
except to make a portion of her own
clothes. She had never made a shirt,
drawers, pants, or waistcoat, or even
gwed a stitch on a coat, and yet before
we had been married a year, she had
made for me every one of the articles
of clothing named, and knit numbers
of pairs of socks for me-yes, and
mended divers articles for me, not ex
epting an old hat or two. She ha&
also made butter, sold eggs, chickens,
and other fowls, and vegetables, to the
amount of nearly six hundred dollars
in cash, at the end of the year, whereas,
during the four years that I was single
I had never sold five cents' worth
besides making me purely happy and
contented with my home, And so far
as to making money, we have made
money clear of expenses ever since we
have undertaken the farm, and she has
made three hundred and fifty to five
hundred dollars every year except one,
during the time selling butter, eggs,
and marketing of different kinds. My
yearly expenses of fine clothing, etc.,
before I was married were more than
my yearly expenses were after I
was umarried, combined with the ex
penses of my wife and childreia;
and our farm has increased from two
hundred and fifty to five hundred acres;
and I believe that if I had not married,
it never would have increased but little,
if any; and I have never been absent
from home six nights, when my wife
was at home. since we wvere married,
and her cheeks kiss as sweetly to me
as they di the morning after I was
