The necessity for life insurance was never
so great as at present. The poverty of our
people is a strong argument to induce them 5
to husband their resources to make provision
for the necessities of their wives and chil- I
dren, and by no means can one so effectually t
make the provision as by a policy of life
insurance in a strong and reliable and well I
tasted company. Such a company we have d
in the Piedmont and Arlington. It has con
-ducted its business in this State for nine a
years, and secured a larger business than any a
other company in the South. It meets its
claims promptly; it invests its assets in soand b
securities; and altogether conducts its busi- i,
ness upon plans ascertained by long expe
rience to be sound and equitable. . (eow)

COURT.-The Court of General Ses
sions convened on Monday, Judge Nor
throp presiding, and Solicitor Fleming
in attendance. His Honor's charge to
the Grand Jury was clear and compre
hensive, and indicative of his purpose
to push - the work of the session in a
business like manner, and we take occa
sion to compliment him on the favora
ble impression already created. True
bills have been handed in in the case of
the State vs. George Washington for
burglary, and in the case of the State
vs. Jacob H. Boozer for obstructing the
public road. This latter case was the
first called and is now before the Court,
and is one which excites a good deal of
interest. The State is represented by
Solicitor Fleming and Maj. J. M. Bax
ter, the defence by Col. Y. J. Pope and
Geo. S. Mower, Esq. The Pomaria
murder and arson case will probably
come up on next Tuesday. From what
we can see and from information gath
ered, our new Judge means business,
and that he will not suffer valuable time
to be lost.

DOx PEDRO rN NEWBERRY.-The
Emperor of Brazil, who is travelling
incognito under the name of Dom Pedro,
is now, by special permission from his
wife, inspecting the Mormon establish
lishment of Salt Lake City. He is a
man of advanced ideas and a great de
sire to learn, so that by his gathered
knowledge he may benefit the people
of his vast empire. On his return from
Utah he is expected to traverse the
Southern States. We learn from the
Chronicle & Sentinel that an invitation
will be sent him to inspect the Augusta
Canal, with all its locks and sluices and
ingenious machinery. We are of opin
ion that Newberry can boast of evi
dences of modern improvement which
no other place in the United States can
offer, and we propose to send Dom Pedro
an invitation to pass a pleasant week'
in looking at those admirable improve
ments of which our city can boast.
First, we would mention our College
building which sits like a queen on her
raised throne. For comfort and safety
it cannot be equalled, and it deserves its
reputation of being the best ventilated
college in the Southern States; by what
ingenious contrivances the air gains ad- t
mission Dom Pedro and his engineers C
must see for themselves; we cannot de
scribe them. Next we have the model c
Depot platform of the world. The ele- d
gance of its mosaic flooring is unsur- I
passed; the artistic skill displayed in a
the manufacture of the baluster, which
protects the multitude from falling into c
:he yawning chasm in the rear, is wor
;hy of the handiwork of Benvenuto
Dellini; it is the pride of the city; the
irrangement of trap-doors by which a
>erson at any part of the platform may
>e thrown under the crushing car
wheels by the touch of a spring in the C
elegraph office, might prove of great
ise to the Emperor to get rid of any of
ii- unpleasant state officers; he would
imply send a message to the telegraph
ffice to touch spring No. 3 for some
incomfortable Brazillian Bristow. Next
ve have the great Sugar Mill-mostly
an by lawyers-who manipulate the
rocess of granulation with wonderful h
kill. The amount of sugar from d
orghum juice realized by this unique
rocess is unequalled in the world. The b
ugar is especially adapted to Rio coffee, p
nd the molasses candy made from its tj
eacle will quiet any Brazillian brat in
ass than two minutes. Then we have
hat enormous cotton factory in Prospect
>wnship, covering some five hundred
cres, with a capacity of three million
pindles, which manufacture long clothh
hat cannot be surpassed for summer
rear at the Amazon. One of the great
st inducements, however, for Dom
'edro's coming would be the Newberry
eef. It is so soft and juicy that we are sr
nly afraid that the Emperor might mis- si
ike it for some kind of brown butter. a
ome villamn has said that from what's
~ft at the table the best India rubber b4
rershoes are made; but that's a vile
ander. Then there is that beautifully p
id out park, superior to the Prater of p
ienna, commonly called Johnstone's d4
oods, designed by that colebrated
-ench landscape gardener, Monsieur g
indabout, who left his unfinished plans
the hands of the Town Council, who
o doubt would take great pleasure
it enough. Write to him, he'll come. n

To the Southern Press:
As this is certainly the quickest
and perhaps the only means to get the
above information, I should feel greatly
indebted to the press favorably dis
posed to gratuitously give this card a
fdw insertions. The importance to the
ladies in making public this matter is
conveyed in a single sentence in the
letter of this searching after truth. He
says: "To-day, I find in a small book,
entitled 'La Guerre et La Charite,' page
100, allusions to associations formed
in Carolina." This seems to be all he
has ever heard of these charities,
which certainly should have been
known wherever the history of the
late war has been properly promul
gated. Very respectfully, &c.,.
