to this veteran Minister. His sermon
was of a high order of merit and deliv
ered in a forcible and pleasant style.
We concluded that perhaps it was the
best sermon of the day, but in the after
noon the different pastors getting to

Fair maintaining that the one delivered
for him by Mr. Lander was the sermon
of the day, while Mr. Broaddus and Mr.

CHARGE TO THE GRAND JURY:
Ma. FOREMAN AND GENTLEM1EN OF THE
GRAN Jiar: As you are familiar with
your powers and duties it will be unneces
sary for me to charg3 you at length. You
will make such exa-nination into the ad
ministration of the public offices as you
my deem necessary and proper. These
ofices are public trusts to be executed for
the benefit of the people. The law pre
sumes that every officer does his duty.
This presuinption might have been deemed
a very violent one at a former period in the
history of your County ; it is happily so no
I deem it my duty to invite your atten
tion to the practice which prevails general.
ly of carrying concealed deadly weapons.
This fatal habit is sprinkling with blood the
walls of our homesteads. Combined with
the free use of intoxicating liqu,,rs, it is
im.eaching our very oivilization. The sym
bols of intemperance are the prison, the
poorhouse, the scaffold and the grave.
When the free use of intoxicating liquors
is united with the carrying of deadly wea
pons, the man whose brain is inflamed with
strong drink is quick to conceive himnseif
injured or insulted, and prompt to resent
the real or fancied wrong with a shot or
blow from the convenient weapon, and the
shadow of the scaffold is thrown across his
path, or his estate is consumed in making
a successful defense. I invoke your aid to
check this practice. You should recom
mend to the General Assembly the passage
of a law to punish with severe penalties the
carrying of concealed deadly weapons in
the communities of this State, and restrict
ing the sale of intoxicating liquors. In the
meantime, I advise you to recommend to
all the municipal governments within the
limits of your County to enact ordinances
immediately prohibiting the carrying of
concealed deadly weapons within their cor
porate limits. Every municipality within
the State has authorIty to enact such an
ordinance under the general power to main
tain order and to guard life and property
within its limits. Such an ordinance is now
in force in the town of Chester, where a
penalty of ten dollars is imposed upon ev
ery pe~rson detected in carrying concealed
deadly weapons, one-half of the fine being
paid to the informer.
I speak from the attested record of crime
in this State when I say that ninety-five per
cent. of all the crimes committed against
the person in South Garolina is due to the
free use of intoxicating liquors and the hab
it of carrying concealed weaipons ; and it
is the duty of the Grand Juries of the State
to exert their powers in applying a remedy
for the evil which is clouding the very civ
ilization of this beautiful land in which we
Iive, and is daily visiting the most serious
calamities upon individuals and increasing
the cost to the public of administering the

Fashion Qarterly for the present Sum
mer presents its readers with a beanti
ful chromo-lithograph, illustrative of
the Fashions of the season. Unlike
m1ost fashion plates, whieb are merely
creations of the artist's brain, the pre
sent is :i faithful reproduction of ac
tual, existing costumes, of which not
only the full descriptions, but the s:es
as well, accompany the plate. 'or the
benefit of our lady readers we append a
brief summary of these costumes, ex
tracted from an advance sheet fur
nished by the publishers.
No. 1 represents a walking costume
in brown, of summer camel's hair cloth
and polka dot satin. The front is of
satin arranged in soft folds, with side
draperies of camel's hair, edged with
silk and tape fringe. The back of the
skirt is of camel's hair, divided from
the side draperies by broad bias bands
of satin, and ornamented with satin
bows. The basque is made in French
coat style, with broad hip pieces of the
polka dot material, and tastefully trim
med cuffs and collar. Price, $47.00.
No. 2 is a second walking dress, ap
propriately named the "Sunrise," and
made of gend'arme blue French bunt
ing and silk brocade. By an ingenious
arrangement of the two materials, the
front is ornamented with the represen
tation of a sun with rays; the side
draperies being of bunting meeting at
a point below the basque, and drawn
to either side of the central design of
the front. The basque is of bunting,
cut long and round, and appropriately
trimmed with the brocade. . Price,
The third .iigure in the illustration
represents a combination dress of silk
in two contrasting shades of drab. The
underskirt in front is made of alternate
strips of the two materials laid in kilt
plaitings, the back being of a single
shade, plain and full. The overskirt is
trimmed across the bottom with revers
of contrasting silk, neatly draped. The
basque is made en panier, trimmed to
correspond with the lower part of the
costume. Price, $28.50.
The last figure is that of a dinner or
reception dress of garnet colored satin
duchess, elaborately trimmed with
cashmere bead fringe and passemen
terie. The skirt is arranged in a dou
ble scarf, on which the trimming is im
posed to great advantage;~ while the
back drapery is formed of a double
box plaiting extending from the wvaist
downward. The basque is cut with
a coat back elaborately trimmed. The
sleeves are open on the upper side, and
laced with cords of satin, with bands of
passemienterie on either sie; the lower
part of the sleeves, as well as the trim
ming of the neck, being finished with
ruchings and plaitings of lace and satin.
