A PAPER FOR THE PEOPLE.
The Herald is in the highest respect a Fam
ily Sewspaper, devoted to the material in
terests o. the people of this County and the
State. It circulates extensively, and as an
Advertising medium offers unrivalled ad
vantages. For Terms, see first page.
Is now in session, and much interest
will be manifested as to what is to
come of it. The commou opinion is
that it will be an important session,
and that many of the reforms promised
so readily and frequently will be car
ried out. This is the hope, and we
trust that it may not be disappointed.
We confess that our faith in the pro
mises made is not very strong, still we
hope. The position taken by the
Governor is encouraging, and the con
fidence reposed in him leads to the
belief that he will not forfeit his
plighted word, to.do all in his* power
to retrieve some of the evils under
which the State labors. We hope
that he is sincere.
Blue Ridge Railroad.
At the meeting in Walha'la, on the
2d instant, in the interests of the
Blue Ridge Railroad, resolutions were
adopted which embody a plan of ac
tion to promote its construction. Ap
plication is to be made to the Lsegisla
ttires of the several States for per
mission to make subscriptions. A
mass meeting was agreed to be held
in Knoxville, Tennessee, on the 10th
of January. An executive committee
was appointed, and also a committee
to presert the claims of this road to
Congress. Several gentlemen addressed
the meeting, and letters were read
from Governor Chamberlain, ex-Gov.
Perry, Hon. J. L. Robinson, Speaker
of the House of Representatives of
North Carolina, and Judge Reed.
From Mr. Robinscn's letter we take
what we regard as a practical sugges
tion of value. He writes:
The State of North Carolina has
near 600 able-bodied convicts that can
be employed on the public works. She
will in a short time have near 500
of them at work in Western North
Carolina. With the labor of 100 con
victs furnished by each of the States
of South Carolina, Georgia, North
Carolina and Tennessee, the grading
of this road in these States respective
ly might be done in twelve months,
(excepting the heaviest tunneling.)
Could not Anderson, Oconee, Rabun
and Macon, with some assistance from
the counties adjacent, feed, guard and
provide for this labor for time neces
sary in prosecuting this work ? It is
apparent, gentlemen, while State credit
is prostrate, that we must rely mainly
upon local and private effort. If we
do not show a disposition to act and
help ourselves we need not expect
anything from abroad.
Mr. John R. Cochran, Senator from
Anderson County, offered resolutions
looking to the use of convict labor,
which were adopted:
Resolved, That in the judgment of
this meeting the convict labor of this
State should be utilized for the public
benefit; and should be used in aiding
the completion of this road, in which
the people have so large an interest.
Resolved, That the Legislature of
this State be memorialized at the
coming session, to allow the labor of
the convicts to be so applied, and that
the Governor be requested to recomn
mend such application, if in his judg
ment it is wise and proper.
This is an important interest, and
the action taken at the above meeting
is significant and to the point, and
shows that the necessities which de
mand the accomplishment of so great
benefit to the State are being appre
ciated. It is hoped that no effort
will be spared, now that the ball is set
in motion, and that all the help possi
ble will be given. We believe that
the people of this section realize the
importance of a connection of this
kind with the great West, and that
they will not prove laggards.
The Netcs & Courier correspondent
says that Mr. Jas. A. Hoyt has sold
his interest in the Anderson .lutelli
gencer, to Mr. Preston Butler, and
that it is his intention to remove to
Charleston. This needs confirmation.
A bbevillc is to be blessed with the
music of a Silver Cornet Band, the
musicians now being engaged in prac
ticing. If they do not hold together
better than the Newberry Cornets,
their labor will be in vain.
The Spartanburg ilerald of the
17th says : Since last Thursday night
the town of Due West has been pick
eted by a large force of her citizens to
thwart the designs of a set of scoun
drels who have' threatened to burn up
the place. This threat was made
known in an anonymous letter to one
of the prominent citizens of the place
under postmark of Abbeville. Seve
ral theories are entertained.
Col. Henry I. Caughnman, of Lex
ington, died on Saturday, the 13th,
at the advanced age of 75 years. He
wds a native of that County, and
practiced as a lawyer many years. He
served in the Mexican war. under un
der Capt. DeSaussure, of Richland,
prior to which he was honored with a
seat in the State Senate, and subse
quently served as a member of the
House. He was a brave and gallant
"Three hundred barrels of whiskey"
are advertised in a city paper, "war
ranted to give satisfaction," and we
have no doubt but that it will to those
who drink it. But the question is will
the satisfaction be general, will the
wives, daughters and friends be satis
fied. Warranted to give satisfaction
-in a horn, and only to those who
take a horn. No one doubts the puri
ty of the whiskey or its value, but it
cannot give general satisfaction. Some
body will come to grief.
A terrible accident occurred on the
Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta
Rail Road, on the night of the 18th.
The night passenger and a train of
empty cars were proceeding in the
same direction at the rate of twenty
miles an hour, the passenger train
in the lead. When -near the Pine
House the passenger train stopped at
a sideling, when the other bulged on
and the engine telescoped the ladies
car, killing one, a bright and beauti
ful child, six years old, a son of Wm.
Nightingale, of Georgia, and inflicting
severe wounds on many others. It
was a miracle that no other lives were
The letter of Senator J. R. Coch
ran to the General Assembly, which
will be found in this paper, meets
with pretty general approval. It is
an important letter, and the measures
proposed by him cannot fail to impress
the minds of those to whom it is par
ticularly addressed. The suggestions
come in good time too, perhaps better
now than at any period in the late
past, and judging from the reception
the letter has received, it is augured
that it will be productive of good.
The demand for a better government
is growing stronger. The party in pow
er acknowledge it and see that with
out change for the better their
waning power will be gone forever.
If the Senator can work his spirit into
his party he will do good.
Several of our exchanges say that
the reason why the State Fair did not
succeed better is that the management
was afraid to use printers' ink. We
are slightly inclined to -the same opin
ion. Another assigns as a reason, the
absence of horse racing. Others that
money was scarce, and that the various
County Fairs had exhausted the means
and dulled the interest, and that rail
roads did not do the right thing by
reducing fares. Only one advertised
a reduction. The Register says that
saw dust shows are afforded more fa
cilities than agriculturists and - me
chanics, and it is even so. The mem
bers of the Legislature for four years
have enjoyed free passes, the roads
being put at their disposal. And
then the business men of Columbia
did not put forth proper efforts to
make the Fair attractive or to attract
visitors. All these things combined
with the absence of printers' ink,
made it a failure.

CAIRO, EGYPT, Sept. 20, '75.
DEAR FEIEND:-No doubt you think I
have forgotten my promise to write occa
sionally to'your Society. But I have not.
My opportunity for seeing the natives and
the progress and character of the Mission
Work among them, as you know, has been
quite limited this summer, owing to our resi
dence among the English in Ramie. Conse
quently I preferred to wait until I saw some
thing of Egypt proper. I am now in its
Metropolis, and my eyes look on many
strange sights every day. Perhaps I could
not do better than to give my good sisters of
your Society an account of our work and
employments for to-day. One day is very
much like another, so when I have taken you
through one twenty-four hours, you will be
able to form a tolerably correct idea of our
Some of you know that I have not been
assigned to a particular Station as yet, owing
to the fact that several of the Missionaries
are temporarily out of the field. When
those in Syria are able to get through the
Quarantine the new Missionaries will be dis
posed of at least for the winter. The interim
I am to spend in this city with the two ladies
who have charge of the Girls' Boarding
School. Their house is in the third story of
a large building, and Dr. Lansing's, with
whom we take our meals, in the second. We
are ready for work in the morning by about
half-past six. By that time the girls' break
fast is ready and at the ringing of the bell
they take their places round the table, stand
ing. Miss Johnston asks the blessing, and
then we leave them in charge of the woman
who does the housekeeping, to go to our
own breakfast. We go up twenty-five steps
to the roof or terrace, and there we have
spread out around us one of the finest pano
ramas I have ever seen. Besides this great
Mohammedan City with its mosques and
minarets, there are the Palm groves and
mountains on ofie side, and the beautiful
open country with its green fields and Acacia
trees on the other. We stop to look over and
admire it every morning, but after a little we
get across the terrace and go down fifty steps
to Dr. Lansing's. Immediately on coming up
I have my Arabic lesson, and then go to the
school room to morning prayers. These over,
Miss Thompson goes out to a distant part of
the city to look after Miss Smith's day
school, where she spends about two hours.
Daring that time a teacher of Arabic pen
manship has come in and given the girls a
lesson, and Miss Johnston and I sit and write
with them. This exercise over, Miss J. gives
the whole school "the Bible lesson," which
is a chapter, and a running commentary and
questions on it. Then come ordinary school
recitations in Reading, Writing, Geography
and English. I assist as I am able, with
two or three little classes in Arabic and some
in English, sitting always in the same room
with Miss Johnston, so that she can give me
the words I want in tiying to talk to the
gtrls. At half-past ten, Miss Thompson is
back and ready to take charge of the school,
so that Miss Johnston can go to her day
school. This morning I went with her. As
we west down the street we met, of course,
all sorts of characters. It is one of the
favorite drives, and has wide, nicely-paved
"sidewalks," in which Acacia trees are plant
ed at regular intervals. The flags in the
pavement do not come up to the trees quite,
a sufficient opening being left to admit the
sunlight to the roots, and also to form a little
basin for the water, which is turned on every
morning. It had just been turned on when
we went out, and all along the street the
people were drinking out of these miserable
holes. It is true there are no pigs here to
revel in such places, but there is everything
else under the sun that is repulsive. These
people were natives, of course, of the lowest
class, but it is nevertheless a very largq
class, and one which is totally destitute of
any iiea of cleanliness. We passed through
part of the Coptic Quarter, with its dark,
nrrow streets, in which, if the windows
could be opened in the second stories of the
houses, you could step from one side of the
street to the other, from the house on one side
to the opposite one. Of course the sunlight
never gets into the miserable thoroughfares
except for a few minutes at noon, and they
are always damp and slippery from the water
thrown out of the houses into them. Some
times too we need to exercise a little care to
keep our heads from getting an undesirable
bath from upper windows, but .to all these
little things one soon gets accustomed. We
thread our way throughi these dingy, dirty,
crowded alleys without the least apprehen
sion of danger, and with but very little of
the feeling of contamination which we would
experience at home.*
The school is in the third story of a dark,
gloomy . old house. We climbed up the
narrow stairs and into the main school room.
Before opening the Boarding School, Miss
Johnston had spent the greater portion of
each day in this school, and then, she said,
there was better order in it than we found
to-day. The head teacher was sick and ano
ther had been dismissed, and the whole four
put together would not make the commonest
kind of a teacher at home. Yet, compared
with other women around them, they were
marvels of wisdom, their more ignorant
neighbors wondering "how one small head
can hold all they know." There were seven
ty-six girls present. After we had been
round all th e rooms the whole school was
brought together in the large school room,
and Miss Johnston gave the daily lesson
from the Bible, sometimes reading herself,
and sometimes making the larger girls read,
asking questions and commenting on every
verse. She closed with a psalm and prayer,
and we took c'ur leave to make some calls,
The house of the wealthiest member of the
church was near by, and we went up in the
hope of securing a little girl for the Board
ing School. After we got on the th ird floor,
things began to look pretty clean and corn- 1
fortable. The drawing room was handsome- 1
ly furnished, and the ladies of the family
the wives of three brothers who all l ive to
gether-were neat and clean. Their dresses
were made with tight waists, which is a great
step forward, and also had a little trimming
in the necks. Native women never dream ]
of wearing a collar. Their dresses are made
lower in the neck than ours and simply hem
med, even if it is the handsomest silk, and
then they will wear perhaps three necklaces.
Two of Miss J.'s teachers had diamond
rosses suspended on one of theirs, but these
ladies only had on heavy strings of large
gold coins tied together so as to form a flat
circle, and handsome chains to their watches.
Black coffee was served, and they read and
talked a little, but,we had to leave without
the promise of the girl. It is such a terrible
thing in Egypt for a girl "to go out of the]
ose"-that is, to spend a night away from .
Our next call was on a right nice family in
good circumstances, but living in a house I
where you felt tha t it was poison to breathe
the air for five minutes. A few doors further
on lived a family from which Miss Johnston
had taken a blind girl to educate for a Bible]
woman. We wvent in through a narrow pas
sage into the court, which~ is open all the
ay up, and admits the only light to a large
umber of rooms. It was about ten feet
quare, and in the middle was an excavation
foot or two deep, into which all the refuse I
wter and dirt of every kind is thrown from
al h om hc pno ti h w
ltothes rove. whe oend oor in uh w
--- am The ernnnd floor in such (
bouses is never paved, and in this court there
was everything disagreeable. But on one
side the house had been cut away in the
lower story and a room about ten feet square
added to the court. In this place was an
Dven-that - is, a dirt oveu-in whicfi the
baking is done after the fire is swep; out; and
two women were busily employed in attend
ing to it. They looked about as well as one
ould expect in such a place-that is to say,
their c!othes looked sticky and their hands
relt so, but they came tanning forward and
kissed us both on each cheek. While they
talked to Miss J., I looked around me. I
knew that they were not baking for them
selves alone. Bread is always "sent out" to
be baked, as private families cannot afford
to keep their own ovens; and quite possibly
this bread was intended for the market. The
bread itsel is of a kind not known in any
other part of the world. It is the native flour
made into a batter a little thicker than for
cake with us, and beaten until it looks almost
like it would froth. It is then sent to the
bakery. These women had spread a dingy
sheet on the ground in front of the oven,
sifted flour thickly over it and then poured
the batter over it in small cakes, where it
stands a little while "to rise." There was
"a swarm" af flies, of course, besides half a
dozen sooty-looking children of various
ages. Just at my feet was a bay of seven
or eight months, lying in the dirt when we
went in. While the women were talking it
had rolled over in the bread, terribly disfiga
ring some of the cakes with both hands and
feet. The mother caught it by one hand and
swung it off a little further, but without
seeming to think there was any harm done.
Just then she turned to take out what was in
the oven. The door was not very large, and
the bread was taken out with a crooked stick,
with which each cake was dragged to the
door and tumbled down on all the rubbish
which was below, to go rolling as far as it
pleased on that horrid ground. When all
were out, she took up the cakes so sadly
marred by the baby's feet, mended the rents,
smoothed out the dints and put them in to
The other woman was begging Miss John
ston to take another girl, and had grown so
eloquent in her pleadings that the people up
stairs found there were visitors below, and
forthwith every window on the court was
crowded with dingy faces, and some of them
commenced crying down, whereupon we
took our leave.
When Miss J. took the blind girl eight
months ago, Dr. Lansing said she was more
a beast than a human being in appearance.
Now she likes her bath and clean clothes,
clean bed and her food taken at the table,
and she reads very well, almost as rapidly as
those who see. It seemed plain to me to-day
that Boarding Schools were the only hope,
almost, for the women of Egypt. It is vain
to expect much from girls who live in the
same room with donkeys, cows and pigeons,
wear such clothes and eat such food as we
saw in the last house we visited to-day. But
Boarding Schools, even with expenses re
duced as low as they can be, are still expen
sive, and cannot, therefore, be conducted on
any but a very small scale. So we both came
home feeling sad and a little disheartened.
With men and boys it is different. They
are bright, intelligent, quick-witted and hand
some, while their mothers and sisters look
as if they belonged to another race. We
came up, however, looked at the girls who
have been here a year, and took heart again.
Our walk had been a long one; it was quite
warm in the sun and we felt weary. But
dinner reinvigorated us, we came up, and
Miss Johnston set the girls to work. The
afternoon is principally spent in teaching
them to sew, make their clothes, &c., and
acquiring English penmanship. I studied
my evening lesson in Arabic, staid in the
school room until four o'clock, and then
commenced my writing. At five, my teacher
came and I read until half-past six. We then
had Arabic prayers, and went over to Dr.
Lansing's to tea at seven. It is now half-past
nine, and I begin to feel a little wveary.
You see every moment is filled up, and
Sabbath is as busy a day as any other. So
our lives seem to pass very rapidly. Older
Missionaries often speak of the way the
years go round, and I cannot realize that I
had been here six months. When I have the
laguage and can work with the others, time
will seem to .pass more rapidly still. May I
do good in the coming years! Then I am sure
I will never regret the long, busy days, let
them be many or few. I would like to be with
you at your next meeting, but of course that
is a vain wish. Give my best love to -
and. all., who know or care for me, so far
away from you all. Many thanks for the
assurance that I am not forgotten. Write to
me whenever you can.

A GREAT INVENTION.
One of the greatest inventions of the
)resent year is the "Reynolds' Fruit and
7egetable Evaporator-," By the process
yhich Mr. Reynolds has adopted, fruits
md vegetables can be preserved in their
tatural state for any length of time
jithout destroying the natural taste or
lo. of the produt. By this process
the farmers of tie rural districts will
now be able to save their fruits and find
an unlimited demand at good prices for
the same. Only one hour and a half is
required by this process of evaporation
to preserve the fruit. A factory has been
in operation in this city, during the past
summer months, that turned out one hun
dred and fifty bushels per day, and yot it
has not been able to meet the demands
of this market. These machines should
be in every county in South Carolina.
They can be built for a small expense,
and by their use thousands of dollars
can be saved that are nowe allowed to go
to waste. Let those who take an in

Having been engaged for twenty years in
the Guano Trade with eminent- success, I
deemed it advisable td introduce Fertilizers
under my own name and guarantee. I have
made arrangements to have prepared a
Guano under my inspection and control,
called ROBSON'S COTTON AND CORN
FERTILIZER. This Guano is of the high.
est standard. It conta ins, among. %Qer
valuable ingredients, three per cent of Am
monia, one and a half per cent. of P4tash,
and.fourteen per cent. of Available Phos
phate. I also have prepared for me a
COMPOUND ACID PHOSPHATE of the
highest standard. These Fertilizers -mr -
compounded of the purest materials, and
are manipulated and tested under the su
pervision of Dr. St. J. Ravenel, of this city,
whose name gives a warrant for their high
haracter and adaptation for our soil. I
offer these Fertilizers to Planters on the
following favorable terms:
ROBSON'S COTTON AND GORN FER
Cash, $44 per ton ; on time, $50.
ROBSON'S COMPOUND ACID PHOS
Cash,".28 per ton ; on time, $33.
Planters ordering immediately will be al
lowed to the first.of April to decide which
they prefer, cash or timie. An order for a
car load of eight tons will be sent free of
drayage ; but for a less amount $1 per tan
will be charged. On orders for large lots
from Grangers or dealers, a liberal discount
will be allowed.
I take this occasion to return my thanks
o those who have so largely patronized
the Fertilizers hitherto offered by me, and
in soliciting their favorable attention to an
other, I pledge my best efforts to meet a
ontinuance of confidence by keeping the
ighest standard of Fertilizers adapted to
otton and corn. .Nov. 17, 46-6t.
