Christmas is coming, and so is New
Year, and it is well to be prepared for
these festive occasions. Many .tbings
which are dispensed with at other times
are indispensable at this time. The

wife and mother looks sober, husband
and father looks cross-eyed, and the
shouts of the little ones are hushed.
Chase the shadow from every brow,
then, by getting something appropriate
for these occasions. We advise our
readers to look through the advertising
columns of the HERALD and note what
the merchants have in store for the de
lectation of young and old.

a multitudinously interesting time see

visited was Sullivan's Island. We re
gret to say that there they met with a
mishap. They wvent over in the 10
o'clock boat intending to return at 12,
but the fine stretch of beach beguiled
them and they missed the boat by two
minutes, and had to remain until 6,
Iwhat made the matter more deplorable
Iwas that they had no dinner. When
they returned to the city and the shel.

need hardly be said that supper was
disposed of with zest.
Mr. J. C. Koon, of Smokey Town,

also has fire-crackers for boys who -re
not happy unless they are making a

C. F. Jackson, of Columbia, is not

Mobilibus PoMARIA rivs."-Hor-A:.
About the year 1790, the first 'ost
office for this section of country ww- es
tablished on "Tanner's Hill," near the
present depot. John Folk, son of Ja
cob Volk (as the name was then writ,
ten), one of the original settlers, a tan
ner-from whose vocation the .hill re
ceived its name-was appointed post
master. The mails at that time were
monthly; then, semi-monthly; then,
weekly; and were conveyed on horse
back from Ninety-Six, Greenville, and
Spartanburg to Columbia. Peter Dick
ert, whose writings still attest his ex
cellence in penmanship, acted as deputy
post-master, mailing the letters from
time to time as they accumulated in
the office. Of him, the following an
ecdote is still related: The Post Office
Department. having observed the chi
rographic skill displayed in the office,
wrote to Mr. Folk, stating that it per
ceived he had a clerk, and that it could
not afford to allow him salary. Squire
Dickert replied, in substance, "that the
Department need give itself no unne
cessary uneasiness, as his only expected
salary was a peck of chinquepins, when
ever picked and bulled by himself."
The office was continued at this place
until about 1817, when it was located
for a short time at the store of Solomon
Suber's, on the spot now occupied by
Dr. Berley's medical office. Thence
it was removed to Col. Jacob Counts',
where it received the name of Counts
ville, and where it remained until the
death of Col. Counts in 1826. Thence
it was removed to Col. William Counts',
where it remained until October, 1831,
when it was transferred to Capt. John
Summer's. Here it remained, under
the name of Countsville, until about the
year 1845, when our venerable fellow
citizen, Wm. Summer, Esq., established
the Pomaria Nurseries, and, with a fine
classical taste for which he continues
admired at home and abroad, baptized
-oth with the name POMARIA, unparal
pled perhaps in beauty.
During the time the office was at
Col. William Counts', the mails were
sipplied semi-weekly with a two-horse
hick; whilst at Capt. Summer's, there
sns a tri-weekly transit in four-horse
stiges. Thus it continued, until early
in 1851, when William Summer, Esq..
khdly consented at the request of Col.
William Spencer Brown, to transfer
both name and office to the railroad de
po; established here.
it remains only for us to express the
ho>e that our fellow-citizens will re
manber its origin, its meaning, and its
hisory, and see that this beautiful name
shll never become a pseudonym.
ON GRAIN AND TURNIPS.
BY OUR POMARIA DOTTIST.
Too many of our people are, we fear,
rater negligent about sowipg grain
adl turnips. For their benefit, we re
spectfully tender the following as the
results of certain scientific investiga
tiaas recently made, regardless of time
and trouble, by the writer:
1st. That the trees next Spring pro
bably will not beair a more bountiful
supply of biscujts than hleretofore.
2nd That hogs will respectfully de
cline turnips as an article of diet-un
less they are procurable, in which case
they will be found a sovereign remedy
against the cholera.
3d. That horses and mules will just
as willingly eat oats next Spring, as to
naw their troughs and meditate on
the utter vanity of human forethought
and human providence.
4th. That our cows are not going "to
chew the cud" of contentment the en
tire Winter, unless they succeed in se
curing a bit of something more digesti
ble than mucky oak leaves and cockle
5th. That our hogs, the loss of an oc
casional bouquet of turnips notwith
standing, will i>robably remain fat and
happy, having at last discovered, after
many long years of patient investiga
tion, wbilst thrown upon their own re
sources, that it is at least possible to
live on pine roots, which are moreover
healty-in the absence of everything
else-and, "providentially," too difficult
to be dug and stored away by man.
6th. That our sheep and goats, which
are highly jubilant over the possession
of stomachs as kindly accommodating
as that of an ostrich, may possibly sur
vive the Winter and Spring -by eking
out an existence on such delectable tid
bits as they may anywhere discover un
appropriated by other animals, and for
tunately overlooked by the provident
eye of the owner.
THE 1IZzY~ BLONDE~S.-Thursday a
strolling company came in unannounced
on the train and scattered bills of a
mysterious character around the streets.
Soon it began to be whispered that the
celebrated "Dizzy Blondes" had come
and would exhibit in the Town Hall at
night. Some who had read and heard
of their performances in Charleston and
Columbia were indignant, and said the
Intendant ought not to allow it-in
wardly hoping, however, that he would.
When the hour for the performance ar
rived a crowd of boys rushed in; but
not so with the older ones. They stood
on the corner-waiting, watching,
scheming. There were two or three
dozens standing there--all by chance;
one was froing home from his store,
another had come to the drill, others
were "just walking about." Nobody
intended to go. "No," said one, "'taint
fit to be seen," and then walked off,
dodged around the corner, and in he
went. When the reporter entered .he
found every man there who didn't in
tend to go. There were old men whose
saintly faces on Sabbath days adorn the
front pews of our churches, young men
of the Y.~M. C. A., and boys in their
teens, all crowded in a mass as near as
possible to the stage, with eager eyes
expecting the dizzy blondes. The cur
tain rose and-such a sight !-a girl, of
apparently sixteen, dressed-shall we
tell ?-like a country miss at a Sunday
School picnic. She was'nt dizzy, and she
wasn't blonde. Then those indignant
young men were disgusted. But they
waited to see. A negro, with a calico
suit and red cap, came out, and per
formed several wonderful feats of leger
demain-and the performance closed.

Communications designed for this columri
to be directed to the Editing Committee,
Newberry, S. C.
We are pleased to observe that in regard
to the college, the aspect of affairs is any
thing but discouraging. The Faculty and
students have labored under great disad
vantages since the opening on the 19th of
September. These inconveniences will be
removed within a month. The tenth of
hnuary next will, it is hardly to be doubt
ed', find the college in the college building.
We'shall then expect a new impetus to he
givetn to the progress of the college by the
citizens of Newberry. This expectation is
founded on the belief that the good people
of this town and county are not ignorant
and careless of their interests.
In this connection, we would most re
spectfully state that a division of labor is in
order, and on this division depends the for
tune of the college. Responsibilities rest
upon the Lutheran Church, the Faculty of
the college, and the citizens of Newberry,
and there can be no shifting of these re
sponsibilities. We do not feel called upon
or competent to enter into a discussion of
the action of the Lutheran Synod in placing
the college on its present basis. It is enough
to know that, for the present, its fortunes
rest with the Faculty, and the people of
Newberry ; though we cannot refrain just
here from reminding the members of the
Lutheran Church in this State that they
have not displayed that zeal for the college
which might reasonably have been expect
ed. Too many, instead of exerting them
seives to send students to the college, have
been content occasionally to carp at the
Faculty for supposed failures to discharge
its duties. In short, the Faculty of New
berry College has at various times and by
prominent and influentit members of the
Lutheran Church, been seriously charged
with not having wrought miracies. A
strange idea sr.enhs to prevail among a cer
tain class, that when a man is elected to a
professorship in an institution of learning,
and especially in Newberry College, he is
at once to saddle upon himself all sorts of
labor, fit or unfit, while others, who should
feel and take equal interest in the work,
stand by only to applaud or deride accord
ing as he succeeds or fails.
We would now appeal particularly to the
good sense of the people of Newberry. The
mere removal of Newberry College from
Walhalla is, of course, no guarantee of its
success. It has only undergone a new birth.
All available and proper means should be
employed to promote its growth. It is now
with the people of Newberry. If they do
for it what it is in their power to do, its per,
manent existence is certain ; otherwise, ia
untimely death is not less sure.
-Now is the time for the people of New
berry to act. Delays are dangerous and
fortune must not be dallied with. The world
moves and it moves fast. What is easy of
accomplishment to-day, may be past possi
The Faculty will employ their time and
talents to make the college in every way
worthy of patronage. They consider it
their highest duty to adopt such methods
of instruction, as are favorable to a rapid
development of the mind ; and recognizing
the fact that a college, not characterized by
practical progress is unworthy of the pres
ent age, they make it their constant en
deavor to give such education as the times
The benefit which the people of Newberry
will reap from the permanent establishment
of Newberry Co.llege, cannot be easily over
estimated. The adva~nced standard of in
telligence will in itself be ample compensa
tion for the liberal part they have done,
and whatever in the future they may do, to
make it securely their own. H.

WASHINGTON, D. C.,
Dec. 12, 1877.
Yesterday was one of the few days since
October 15th, that this Congress may justly
be proud of. In the House there was a
dignified debate upon the Mexican question,
and members of both parties united in what
must be considered a warning to the Ad
ministration against plunging the country
into war. Your correspondent has not fail
ed, from the first, to expose what ne be
lieved was a wicked as well as formidable
effort of certain powerful gangs of specula
tors and adventurers to involve the two
countries in hostilities. There was never
more danger of the success of such a scheme
than on yesterday, and it is to the infinite
credit of Representatives Hewitt, Hale, Ste
phens, Garfield and others that they said
and did what will certainly cause the Ad
ministration to halt if it was, as feared,
about to take steps which could only end
In the Ser.ate, Mr. Eustis, of Louisiana,

For the record of yesterday, so far as
these facts go, the House and Senate are
entitled to the thanks of the country.
Senator Mathews spoke in favor of his
resolution, which is to the. effect that all
debts of the United States may be paid in
silver dollars of 412j grains each. The
speech of Mr. Mathews was an able one, but
the most interesting portion of the debate
was the unreserved manner in which Mr.
Thurman advocated remonetization of sil
Justice Harlan, of the Supreme Court, was
yesterday sworn in and took his seat. The
way Edmunds was beaten in this case is
amusing. He was well known to be op
posed to confirmation, and it was thought
if he was present when a vote was to be ta
ken, he would, without making himself con
spicuous in the matter, set the party ma
chinery to work to cause a rejection. So
the friends of Harlan called up the subject
in Executive Session while Edmnunds was
taking a needed repose after the Butler
Kellogg contest, and confirmed their man.
Then they made a motion to reconsider the
vote of confirmation for the reason, as they
said, that "Senator Edmunds, Chairman of
the Judiciary Committee was absent." If
Harlan had been rejected after that the re
sponsibility would have been on Edmunds,
and therresult shows that he did not care to
have the subject go to the country in that
An instructive statement of the cost of
public printin~g in South Carolina for two
years is made. One year was under carpet
bag rule when Chamberlain, Patterson and
the rest had the State by the throat, and
the other is for the current year. The car
pet-baggers took $250,000. The cost for
this year is about ~6.OOO. All your readers
lation say to an annual printing bill of a
quarter of a million.
It is now understood that Mr. Morrison
will be Chairman of the Committee on Pa
cific Railroads. Mr. Potter declined this
Chairmanship on account of his business re
lations with those prominently interested in
the Texas Pacific. All the bi:ls so far pre
sented giving subsidy to this latter road
have pre--isions Tzrding Government in
terests more carefully than in previous sub
sidv bill,. It remains to be seen whether
