DEcIsxoNs OF THE CouaTs.-Auy perso
who takes a paper regularly from the Pos
Office-whether directed to his name or an<
ther, or whether he subscribed or not-is r(
sponsible for the pay. If a person orders h
paper discontinued he must pay all arrea:
ages, or the publisher may continue to sen
it until payment is made, and collect th
whole amount, whether it is taken from th
office or not. The Courts have decided ths
refasing to take newspapers and periodical
from the Post Office, or removing and leav
jug them uncilled for, is prima facie evidenc
o intentional fraud. 44-tf.

on a Thursday, and about half past f

sufferers are neighbors living immedi
ately opposite each other, and both
members of the Masonic fraternity.

SAD ACCIDENr.-We regret to say 0
that our townsman, Mr. J. 0. Peoples, D
sustained serious damage on Thursday ti
last by the double fracture of his left g
leg below the knee. He was in the act I
of taking a seat in Dr. 0. A. Norris' V
wagon when the mule attached to it 5
became frightened at his open umbrella, il
and darted off. While in the attempt c
to let the umbrella down, the wagonb
struck a curb stone, and the danger be- b
coming more imminent, Mr. P. jumped il
out, and unfortunately with the result t
as already stated. We are pleased to ~y
say that his physicians, Drs. Mayer & v
Mayer, give him the promise of being 1:
on his legs again in a short period, and s
we trust the promise may be realized, a
as it requires a large amount of philoso- d
phy to bear confinement to bed during ~
the sweltering days of summer.
To HOUSEKEEPES.-With the open-- c
ing of Spring, housekeepers find that, t~
besides the wear and tear and smash of a
the winter, which makes an addition to a
their stock of kitchen and dmning room s
chattels necessary, there are many arti- a
cles peeuliar to the season which must be s
had, and where to find them readily and y
cheaply is the onestion. Messrs. Kings
land & Heath solves the problem by in
viting all per'sons in need of china, e
glass, stone, wood, iron and tin ware, to d
visit their store in Columbia, under the t
Columbia Hotel. 16-tf 6
EVERY ROSE HAS ITS IQRN.-So- I
ciety has been lately shaken :.0 its very i.
depth. Husbands of large wives and 3
fathers of many daughters have felt a s
spirit of refreshing at the glorious in- c
telligence that calico, which will stand t
washing, could be had at six and a quar-i
ter cents per yard. -Yes 'tis even so. ]
But, alas, every sweet has its bitter, for t
it is discovered that instead of ten yards a
being enough to enclose the form di
vine fifteen will scarcely do, and for a I
~good flowing fit twenty yards are neces
sary. Oh, ye gods and little fishes,
what is to become of the heads of fami
lies. Twenty yards of calico, the half
of a bolt. If there is not some special
s enactment made to meet this great evili

to programme Prof. Milam's prepara
tions for the grand Skating Tourna
ment were all completed and in time
forthe large and brilliant company of
ladies, gentlemen, misses and youth
which assembled at the Hall on Thurs
day evening last. The well dressed
ladies and gentlemen, the bright lights,
and the bewitching music of the' Cor
nets all conspired to make the scene
particularly attractive. Absence from
the city prevented our participating in
the enjoyment of the occasion or of see
ing for ourself, but the description given
to us by one who was there afforils sat
isfactory data for a local. We imagine
that a tournament by night, under the
influence of bright lamp lights and mu
sic, without the disturbing and annoy
ing effects of a sweltering sun, or clouds
of dut, wild and reckless dashing about
of horses, rolling of vehicles, and the
awkward and sometimes painful acci
dents which occur, must be an enjoy
able affair. So it proved in this in
stance. .The ladies looked their pret
tiest and the gentlemen had nothing
else to do but to play the agreeable
hence Milam's tournanment was a suc
cess We learn that the skating was
capital, both ladies and gentlemen ex
hibiting marked proficiency.
In the contest between the gentlemen,
Mr. A. Foot, as Knight of Newberry,
succeeded in taking the prize, a fine
pair of skates, with the privilege of
crowning a Queen of Love and Beauty.
His choice was made by selecting Miss
Lula Greneker, and the pleasing duty of
crowning her was performed by him with
his usual graceful dignity. The next
in order were Mr. Harry O'Neill, Knight
of Chesapeake, whose choice fell upon
Miss Sue Dansby, as First Maid; Mr.
James Milner, Knight of Georgia,
Miss Mamie Pool, as second; Mr. J. B.
O'Neill, Knight of Maryland, Miss Car
ro Motte, as third: and Mr. Ed. Stod
dard, as Ivanhoe, Miss Fanny Chap
man, as fourth. There were two other
Knights only, Messrs. P, T. Brew
er, as Columbus, and Ed. Scholtz, as
Prussia, who bore their .disappointment
in not being privileged to crown ye
fair lady as became true Knights and
After the tilt, and the interesting
ceremony of the crowning, ladies
and gentlemen took the floor and a
lively time was had, wvhich did not
terminate until the witching hour of
twelve, when each one of the charmed
and charming circle returned to their
homes well pleased with the entertain
ment afforded by the Professor.
We forgot to mentioni in the proper
place that much of the enjoyment of
the evening is attributable to the gal
lant attentions and efficient labors of
the judges-Messrs. Silas Johnstone,
Y. J. Pope and WV. F. Nance.

CANTuTA o1r QUEEN Esn1gR..-The
Court House was filled to its utmost on
Tuesday night last by a highly pleased
and apprcciative audience, and we are
proud to say thiat the rendering of this
exquisite Oratorio gave evidence that
we have a large amount of talent in
our town. The entertainment on this
occasion was .new and novel for this
latitude, and of a character calculated
to impart a good influence, for unlike
the general run of floating amuse
ments, there was nothing impure or
triling about it, and we haiil this effort
we might say sacrifice-on the part of
the young ladies and gentlemen of our
town as a hiappy augury of the future.
Nothwithstnding the heat of the eve
ning, the crowded condition of the
rooml, and the awkwvard arrangement
of some of the seats, each one of the
1large audience seemed, long before the
stubborn red curtain was raised, to be
en~ rapport with those behind the scenes.
It was not strange, then, that the ele
vation of the curtain brought out a
lively greeting. The acting generally
was good and the solos and chorusses
excellent, much better than could have
been expected. The costumes, also,
were in good taste and showed to much
f advan~tage, It would occupy too much
>space to particularize each one of the
.characters and the parts sustained by
them, nor will we attempt it, but wve
cannot help saying that Miss Carro was
a charming and perfect Queen, and her
r' voice, tremulous in the opening and
t naenl too-, n weak, soon swelled into
mellifluous strains, and their graces o
person to the scene, will allow us to sa:
that Dr. Ed., as the King, filled the bil
entirely. Ie was every inch the char
acter he represented, and looked as i
he had been enjoying a kingly life o
luxury for, lo, these many years, th<
effect of which had made his voieC
round, mellow and impressive. Th<
character of Haman was well persona
ted, as was that of Mordecai, and the
only fault which can be found with
either is that they would sometimes
help to let down the troublesome red
curtain. They made themselves useful
as well as ornamental. The semi-cho
russes of children in the fifth act was de
decidedly good-and brought down the
house in a storm of applause, loud,
long and continued, until it had to be
Take the Cantata altogether it was a
decided success, and we congratulate
the community on their good fortune in
having so much talent and beauty in
its midst. Hereafter we need be under
no obligation to the outside world for
entertainments when we can get up
one so good at home.
By request, the Oratorio was repeated
on Monday evening to a well-filled
house, and in the happiest style; and it
is thought by some that it was better
than on the first occasion; it could
scarcely have been so, however, for ex
cept that the audience was better able
to appreciate the singing and acting,
we could see no difference. On both
occasions we were filled with delight.
We omitted mention above of Miss S.,
who, as Mordecai's sister, gave proof
that she has a sweet and cultivated
voice. We would like to name several
other young ladies who performed their
roles in a charming manner and sang
delightfully, but space forbids.
The proceeds of the first, amounting
to .$125.00, will be appropriated to the
Episcopal Church of this place, and
that of the second to the State Monu
mental Association. To Miss Mary
Motte and others, who were largely in
strumental in getting up the Oratorio,
and whose labors were very great, much
praise is due.
