Gen. W. K. Kimball, of Maine,
who shot himself last week, left a let

he said that there was no need for an
inquest, and continued : "I am sorrow
stricken, heart-broken, and have vol

instead of waiting to be drafted by the

A philosophical farmer in Tennes
see has furnished to the Christian
Observer a statement of the results of
the late floods on his own crops and
land. The itemized account of dam
age done by the water to Timothy
seed, hay, fences, ditches. stock and
utensils foots up a total of $2,600.
On the other hand, the farmer gained
by deposit on five hundred and fifty
acres, from one to eighteen inches
thick, which he valued at ten dollars
an acre. His clear gzain from the
floods was 62,900.
At Niagara Falls, on Wednesday,
James Wood, formerly a sea captain,
his wife, and Capt. Jones, of New

the river at the entrance to Prospect

"Good-bye," and jumped into the

and barely escaped himself. The
body went over the American fall,
only a few feet from Prospect Point,
in sight of several hundred visitors.

Keely, of motor fame, looms up
again in the letter of a correspondent
of the New York World, describing a
visit to the remarkable man and the
appearance of his workshop. It was
strewn with broken models and pieces
of machinery twisted as though a
Titan had played with them. Being
asked what forces curled up iron in
this way, Keely recited the familiar
phrases, "latent power in water,"
"mzultiplication of force," "generation
of vapor"-leaving the questioner ex
actly as wise as he started. The
chiefly interesting part of the letter is
a passage concerning some bits of de
scription not previously made public.
Keely is forty-five years old. From
his early boyhood he has had an affnity
for mechanics. At twelve he made a
steam engine; at fourteen he made
another; then became a clerk in a
drug store, then a logomotive engineer,
and then a gymnast. He has been
blown into the water from a steamboat,
has made two balloon ascensions, lived
out West in Minnesota, has been a
rover, a troubadour, a restless seeker
after something new and strange.
With his friends he displays his spirits
like a fawn. He will toss a cigar to
the ceiling and catch the right end in
his teeth, fling across the yard a weight
that would break the backs of three
ordinary men, vault a fence, create a.
devil in his own workshop, and tran
qjuilly toy with him while confuting
and amazing with an iron logic the
opinions of a grey-headed engineer
who has dropped in to make fun of
the motor. He is, in fact. a queer
fellow. He may be the greatest dis

A PAPER FOR THE PEOPLE.

terests of the people of this County and the

Arrests in Laurens.
The latest news from Laurens is
that Washington and Walter Shell,
brother and nephew of the murdered
wan, have been arrested for the mur
der of Crews.
It is said that there are no less than
twenty-one warrants ready to be serv
ed. And now begins again the reign
of terror in that unfortunate County.
Room at the Top.
It was Horace Greeley who said
that "there is room plenty at the top."
Allusion was made to the avocations
of life. The bottom of the ladder is
crowded and all the intermediate way
from bottom to top is more or less
full, but beyond and on top there's
plenty of room. How true, and morc
especially as to professions. How
large the crowd which wake the start,
and how few arrive at any eminence.
The reason for this is plain, the large
majority mistake their calling, and
instead of filling useful positions as
farmers, mechanics or laborers, miser
ably fail as lawyers, doctors, preachers
and counter-jumpers. The failures are
legion, and society in consequence is
overrun with non-workers and non
producers. The widest field, and
which lies the most invitingly open,
is that of agriculture, and its skillful
and scientific pursuit promises the
largest yield. But it is a lamentable
fact that the majority of the young
men of the country who have been
bred on the farm fly it from and seek
their destiny in the professions, many
being influenced by fathers who are
fired with the ambition of seeing their
sons great lawyers with large incomes.
Alas, that it is so. The country loses,
fertile lands lie waste, and all branches
more or less suffer because the young
men, who should be rightly engaged,
are vainly endeavoring to reach pros
perity in mistaken channels. Our ad
vice to young men is to stick to the
farm, study the soil and the science of
planting, and success is sure to follow.
There are already enough makeshifts
and failures in the professions. The
busy, consuming world wants workers,
and men who by industry, perse
verance and intelligence can win their
way to the top.
Some time since a communication
appeared in our columns, from a plan.
ter in this County, in regard to the
cultivation of Jute as a substitute for
cotton, the writer stating that he was
then making experiments with the
plant, and had some thriving speci
mens of the same growing. We have
heard nothing more from that quarter,
however. In a late issue of the
Charleston News & C'ourier appears
some interesting remarks on the sub
ject, predicated on an article prepared
for the next number of the Rlural
Carolinian, the advanced sheets of
which were furnished the first named
paer. It is certainly an interesting
and important subject, and one which
should claim attention, and if it can
be successfully raised in the interior
of the State as well as on the Islands
of the Coast, its culture will open up
a new prospect to the farmer. We
deem the article of thle News and
Courier sufficiently interesting to copy
it entire :
"The writer notes the fact that the
crop of sea island cotton grown in
this State, which, before the war.
averaged twenity-five thousand bags
per annum, has dwindled down to six
thousand bags for the past year, and
the plantations which before the war
were among the most valuable in the
State, aTe now almost unsaleable ;
while planters and factors have been
sinking money every year since the
war in their efforts to keep alive a
dying industry. The causes which
have led to the present state of affairs
are too well known to all interested to
need discussion, but they are still ini
force, and while they continue we can
not look for any revival. It is there
fore urged that the planters of our
seaboard should look at once for somec
other product that can be cultivated
on these lands to advantage, and, if
necessary, take the place of cotton.
Rice, indigo, cotton, each in its turu
has been brought from the East In
dies, and found suited to our soil arid
and climate and added to the resources
of the State. There is still a fourth
product of the same country which
has grown into great importauce with
in the last fifteen years, and which
seems well adapted to supply our pres-,
ent want, and should it be found to
grow well here, it will repay the plan
ter well for the loss of all the others.
I This is Jute, which is now exported ~
'o largely from East India, both to
En-aland and this country. It is used
n the manufacture of baging for
-otton and grain, and is also mixed
ith wool, flax and cotton, in numerous
>ther articles. The importance to
vhich the trade has grown may be
udged of from thc! fact that the ial
orts into the U7rited States since
January 1, and the stock afloat up to
late of Jutc and Jute butts. amounts
1o two hundred and forty-four thous
id bales, and the stock on hand Jan
aary 1 was seventy-five thousand bales,
making a supply for the past eight
mouths of three hundred and nine
been thousand bales.
"its advantages as a crop for our
impoverished planters are as follows:
i-The small cost of cultivation, it be
ig only necessary to prepare the lamd

Dn the rich lands of our truck farms,
if sowu in June, when the potato
urop is taken out, it would doubtless
yield much more, perhaps as high as
ive to six thousand pounds, and prove
more profitable as a summer crop than
anything else that could be planted.
--A cir-uir, written by Mr. Emile
Lefranc, of New Orleans, and pub
ished by the Department of Agri
culture at Washington, shows that it
grows well in Louisiana, and from ex
periweuts made within the last few
years ou a small scale, we know it
urows well in our rice fields. As it is
important no time should be lost, it is
suggest.kd that the Agricultural So
ciety should take the matter in hand,
procure at once enough seed to have
it tested next spring on the islands
and main land, find out the cost of
growing it and preparing it for mar
ket, and if they think well of it,
have enough of land sown in it on
one of the islands, under the care of
some good planter, to justify them in
getting. a machine next summer to
prepare it for market. It would fol

raills would be put up to make bag

The question of removing the Asy

The propriety or necessity of this we
cannot understand. The Asylum has

and can be supported there at much
less expense thau at the Capital, and
tere it should by all means be allow

for such an institution, which latter
would become a ruin and loss if the
institution be changed. Something

The ghost of the defunct Ku Klux

This is a prejudiced view and much

prehension of the assassin, should so
far forget his position as a conservator
of the peace of the State, as to say
that "such an act tends in a special
manner to disturb the peace of the
State and to revive feelings and -prac
tices which have already brought in
calculable evils upon the people of the
State." Gov. Chamberlain goes too
far in supposing or hinting that
politics had anything to do with a
deed so dastardly in its character, and
insults the Conservative people of this
State, who it is safe to say deplore any
and all such deeds. If there was con

say that it was the work of Crews' own

Down the St. Lawrence.
MONTREAL, August - 1875.
"Hlow sweet it were hearing the downward
With half shut eyes ever to seem
Faling asleep in half a dream."
Ah! yes, to lean one's head .on the
railing that bounds the forward deck
of a sailing vessel, and with "half shut
eyes" to gaze on the broad expanse of
moving moon-lit waters, on the hills
that lay sleeping far, far away in the
dim, uncertain distance, and on the
ghost-like sails that ceep so silently by
on the bosom of the lake, is a joy, aI
sweetness inexpressible. All night long
last night we sailed over the burnished
waters of Lake Ontario.
'Twas a night of rare beauty; a night
such as we all have seen and almost all
remembered; a night half of light and
half shadow; one when the pale young
moon comes silently ont and floats on
clouds of fleecy splendor; when the
delicate crescent shape seems vague
and ethereal; and the light comes
trembling through the silent atmosphere
and falls upon the earth in softened
splendor; when the stars shine with a
sad, soft light, and the vapory mists in
the pale blue ether seem weaving them
selves into airy forms of silver lace.
When the winds blow soft and low, and
yet seem strangely calm and quiet;
when the murmur of the tossing waters
lays like spirit sighs upon the sweet
night air; when the earth seems sleep
ing a dreamy sleep and the clouds seem
moving to unheard music and the air
to be laden with an irresistible perfume.
A night when the tales of fairies, of
fays, of ghosts and goblinss eenr
strangely true and real, and when we
can understand man's desire to worship
a god that he knows not of. Holy nights
they are, which fill our souls with
solemn thoughts and nameless yearn
ings, and awake, that latent spirit of
nature which dwells somewhere within
us all. Nights which, thank God, shall
never cease as long as days of sad
reality precede. I sat dreaming far
into the night. Men and fair women
passed to and fro on deck and seemed
moving in a waking dream. T1he waves
beat in a murmuring monotone against
the sides of the vessel. The boats moved
by as if propelled by spirit hands. The
winds kissed the tall white sails and
murmured low sweet words as they
floated by. All the earth seem draped
in beauty and peace, and I thought,
"How sweet it were hearing the downward
With half shut eyes ever to seem
Falling asleep in half a dream."
I blessed Tennyson with all my heart.
I repeated v'erse after verse from the
dreamy lotus eaters again and again to
myself, and thought, Ah! how goodi the
whole world is.
I thought of our dear sunny southern
land, and how 01(1 Newberry to-night
would be wrapped in the silver light;
how the trees would cast their long
shadows on the grey earth, and how in
deep peace and quiet the little town
would lay sleeping, sleeping in the
shade and light, and how perhaps the
youths and maidens would in the mel
lowv light repeat in low tones the old,
old story, the story of love which shall
neerdi. Thought of the dear old
place, of the mkid friends there, of vdn
ished days, of other timest of joys long
gone by, and they filled my heart with
mad, sweet memories.

This morning were out on deck just
as the sun was casting his first rws over
the grey earth, tinting the air and sky
with a bright rose thush. The boat was
just entering that part of the river where
the first one of the Thousand Islands
stands an effeminate guard over lir
sisters who lay sleeping for miles down
the river. The river spreads itself here
to the width of 12 miles and is (lotted
with islands as thickly as 'the heavens
with stars. If one were floating there
in the blue ether as far up in the heav
ens as the white summer clouds, he
might realize the width of the river and
the number of islands. On earth we
have as little conception of the fact as
we have that the sun is a prominent
member of the "Milky Way."
Some six or seven is all that show
themselves at once, and the first so like
the others that you could fancy them
sailing along down with you, besides
which you are perpetually confounding
the largest or the farthest with the shore,
and so circumscribing things still more.
Though you have counted vaguely on
getting a bird's-eye view of the whole
thousand at one glance, and thus being
able to verify the account, you are some
how not disappointed. The trim little
islets look so fresh in their green tunics
of cedar and juniper that you can no
more find fault with them than with a
guli in her first ball dress.
We received on board at Clayton a
large crowd of tourists, all agog for
scenery, and the scramhle for chairs
next to the railing on the forward deck
was something appalling. Oh! snch
ebattering. "The Islands," "The St.
Lawrence," "The Adirondacks," "Mon
treal," "Quebec," "White Mountains,"
OHalifax," "Will it rain?" "Will it
shine?" "Willit be foggy ?" "Shall we
change boats?" "Where is my water
proof?"-a charming olla podrida. It
wvas one of those shady, quiet days
most favorable for spending upon the
water, and the baby islands each in its
best bib and tucker "showed off to ad
vantage" remarkably well. The great
iver here has worn its many channels
through a bed of solid rock and has
exposed to view, as it were, the grey
hairs of this, our old, old~ world, (and
At Broekville, which looks like an
ancient Old World town, we parted

start five miles below Prescott); Chim
ney Island is passed; the "Captin"
clibs up the front of the wheel house,
a keen, grey-haired sailor takes the
steeran's place and four lusty fellows
man the wheel; everybody draws near
the railing. The steamn is shut off and
the vessel seems to pause a moment to
gather strength, while a death-like si
lence pervades the crow I as the first
"slap" of the b)reakers is felt upon the
prow, but "Long Sault" is not what we
expected. We are not sliding down an
incipient waterfall, but are buffeting
with a stormy sea. The wind howls in
the rigging, great waves rise up and
break upon the vessel, dashing their
blinding spray into our very faces,
while the war of the surging waters
drowns every sound. No one speaks;
no( one even breathes, until suddenly
we hear a scream, every one then in
stinctively loosens tension; the spell
is broken and every one is relieved.

amidl a chorus of exclamations, Mag

tame and tedious after the perils of the
"Sault." The Colean, the Cedars and
the Cascades all come in due order.
Every one is delighted, but no one dumb

sure at the sight of the steamer
"Grecian" lying upon the rocks of the
Cedars, and a devout hope expressed as
the "Champion" tumbles down that tu
multuous stairway that she may not
meet with a like fate. The "Champion"
is an hour late at Kinston; the rosy sun
set louds which are piling themselves
so complacently above the blue mirror
of Lake St. Louis are all very lovely,
but strike us as a little premature, and
an ominous fog is gathering in the dim
distance where the Royal Mountain
rears its lofty head, Watches are here
anxiously consulted, distance computed,
and the captain nearly teased to death.
"Everything depends upon the, fog,
Madam," "Pray for a breeze, Miss, if
you wish to go through," were some of
the answers to the many inquiries as to
whether we would have to turn off into
the canal or go through the rapids. We
pass Caughnawatga and the canal, and
steam on. We take on an Indian pilot;
the steam is again shut off, again we
hear the first "slap" of the wheel; again
the breakers roar, only with a greater
force and louder noise. Truly the ex
citement of the passage is fully equal to
the most sanguine expectations. It is
a thing once seen-once felt, to be re
membered for a life time. The calm,
steady figure of the captain, upon whom
the whole responsibility rests, the dark,
stolid Indian, with his bead-like eyes
fixed upon some mysterious point in
