A New Invention.
Rev. W. S. Martin, a young Metho

has invented a contrivance for detach

This contrivance obviates all danger in

possibly run away with the buggy.
Persons who have seen the apparatus
in use say it is a good thing. Mr. Mar

Do You Want Health ?
Why will ye die? Death, or what is
worse, is the inevitable result of con

flow. It is a condition which should
not be trifled with. Immediate relief is
the only safeguard against constitu

suspension or other irregularity of the
"courses," Bradfield's Female Regu
lator is the only sure remedy. It acts
by giving tone to the nervous centres,
improving the blood and determining

David R. Phifer in 1871.
The following letter was written to

practices which he then so vigorously
NEWBERRY, S. C., May 22, 1871.
MESSRS. EDITORS: You will much
oblige me by publishing in the first is
sue of your paper the following card to
From the revelations made to me, as
Grand Juror, of the fraud and corrup
tion committed by parties claiming to
be Republicans, and from the failure to
consummate in practice what seemed
plausible and possible in theory, I am
constrained to publicly sever all politi
cal connection with the so-called Re
publican party of this County and State.
And while I shall always admire and
reverence the theory and principles of
genuine Republicanism, I am firmly
convinced that it is not possible to prac
tice strict adherence to said theory and
principles, and at the same time give
that support to this down-trodden State
which its necessities demand. As much
for the happiness of those who are con
nected with me, and whose happiness
is bound up in my action, as for my own
decency, I desire no longer to be looked
upon as a Republican partisan, but as
one who yields to no one in good wishes
for the welfare of this State.
Hands off, less government, submis
sion to, and waiting on, the slow, but
sure progress of natural causes, proper
veneration for the wholesome influence
of wealth and refinement, will save the
State. I now distrust the extravagant
theories, and question the applicability
of the abstract principles of Radicals,
however ingenious and sound, and shall
hereafter support only measures of prac
tical utility, rather than plausible
schemes of regeneration, which are not
attainable in the existing state of know
ledge and public opinion.

Test of a Fire Engine.
We make the following extract from
a notice in the Orangeburg Democrat in
regard to a trial of one of the SilsbyEn
gines recently purchased. It will be
remembered that the Silsby Manufac
turing Company made fair proposals to
the Council and Town for furnishing
one of their machines. Nothing came
of it, however, and our town remains
in the same defenceless condition as
before the several fires which laid so
many valuable portions in ashes. The
notice appended will prove interesting,
as it shows what these machines can
After all the arrangements were made,
fire was kindled in the furnace at twenty
two minutes past 4 o'clock. In four
minutes ten pounds of steam was gen
erated and the whistle blown; in five
minutes, with twenty pounds of steam a
stream was thrown considerably higher
tnan the steeple of the Baptist Church,
130 feet high, through 150 feet of hose.
After this eight hundred feet of hose
were unreeled, reaching to Mr. Sco-.
ville's residence on Russell-street, and
through a nozzle one inch in diameter
a stream was thrown 180 feet. The
engine was then moved to the cistern
near Messrs. Strauss & Co.'s mill, and
two lines of hose attached 400 feet each
and through 3-4 inch nozzles two
streams were thrown simultaneously
170 feet; two other sections were then
attached and four streams were then
thrown up-hill simuiltaneously 135 feet.
These being removed a line of hose
100 feet long was attached and a stream
of water was thrown 203 feet through
a 1 inch nozzle, and then 191 feet
through a 1 1-4 nozzle both up-hill and
against the wind. At one time during
the test five streams of water were
playing at one and the same time, one
at the engine and four at a distance of
400 feet away. As far as we could
learn the test was perfectly satisfactory
in every particular and proved the en
gine to be one of great power, and fully
up to the standard guaranteed. The
engine is a fifth-class Silsbeith rotary
motion, nickel plated and excellent
workmanship, indeed a thing of beauty
as well as power and we congratulate
the Young .Americas upon their good
fortune in securing an engine that is
destined to be not only the pride of the
company but of the town. We trust,
that afrer this, there will be no trouble
Corn is King.
Far more bushels of corn are raised
in America than of all other grain
crops added together. For some weeks
now this will occupy most attention.
The American Agricuiturist for May
gives instructive results of hundreds of
careful experiments with fertilizers on
Corn during 1878 and 1879, and there
are some 130 other articles, and 75
original engravings, all useful and in
structive to every cultivator of a small
Garden or a large Farm. The Depart
ment of Agriculture gets a hard hit for
sending out some bogus seed. Ex
posure of Humbugs. Hints and Helps
for Farmers, various Dairy matters, etc.,
etc., make this a most valuable num
ber. Price 15 cents, or $1.50 a year.

This is the title of the new Prize
Story, the publication of which will
begin in the Charleston Weekly News

Miss Jeanie Drake, of Charleston, S.
C. The story begins in the Pryenees,
and the opening chapters contain some
graceful sketches of Pyrenean life,
which are deftly interwoven with the
beginnings of a charming love-story.
The scene afterwards changes to New
York, and is diversified by some lively
pictures of New York society. Later,
the Carnival in New Orleans is in
troduced, and is vividly described. The
story is artistically told, and the dram
atis persone are cleverly sketched. The
committee who awarded. the author of
When Sparrows Build the prize of one
hundred doilars in gold, offered by the
proprietors of The Weekly News, say in
their report that it is 'a clever and
charming tale, good'in incident, char
