all the virgin forest and even that
which is not virgiv, will soon have

in order to keep up fences. Shall we

ately weighed in the balances of every
clear and unprejudiced mind, the dos

law. The Banner says:
"The poor man who is unable to
buy timber to make rails to protect
his crop is absolutely at tho morcy of
his neighbors' cattle. The rich farm
ers who have large landed estates can
generally protect their crop, but the
poor main with a small track finds it
impossible to build fences. As the
lawv now stands it discriminates as
gainst the poor'. Thousands of acros
of land in Abbevillo county now lie
idle and non productive for the want
of timber to guard the cr'op against
the depredation of stock. The 1)001
of this county should *domand that

At 1 o'clock this miorning a special
session of the Cabinet was called. Al]

in Newv York. After a full confe~renc<
during which the loss of tihe groal

EF'ECT OF THE NEwsV.
The news of the (loath of. the Vicc
President, cast a gloom over the
whole community. His death affords
ed the absorbing them for discussion
in all the Executive departments. In
respo'ot to his memory, orders were at
once issuod to drape all the public
buildings in mourning and display at
ha'f mast, the American flag, all the
hotels and the District Government
buildings, also united in this tribute.
The death of Vice President Wilson
again raises the queston, "Who will
be President of the Sonate?" Thorc
can ho at the present time but onc
conclusion as to its~ solution. The
special session of the Senate called in
April last, after an exciting cauaus.
selected by a majority vote of one.
Thomas W. Ferry of Michigain, a..
gainst Henry .B. Anthony, of Rhode
Island, the competitor for the place.
There has boon no change in the. Sen
ators, since all the new members par
ticipated in the caucus deliberation
which broughat about the nomination1
Thero is no doubt that if the Senate,
at its next meeting, does not by sub,
sequent action, reverse its selection of
last April, that Mr. Ferry will be the
presiding officer'. There is a general
opinion, however, that the Senate will
select a newv President pro tern.

Of the students of the Pickens High
School took place on Friday, 19th
instant, which closod the scholastic
year of 1875. The public attendanoe
on the ocsion was small, owing,
doubtless to tlo incolemqeOy of the
woather,.and nOtto s,wan f interest
on the part of patro'ns or.the public
generally. The proficiency of the
several classes was fully equal, if not
superior to that of former occasions

The scholars, as shown in this ox,
amination, although, it was~nocossa
rily shirt, did themselves gre4t credit.
And we must say in this' 6onnection
to every body, who desires their sons
and daughters well educated, that we
know of no school in our country,
either as a preparatory school, or one
in which studonts can acquire a good
sound business education,. that offers
greater advantages than this.
The Principal is a teacher of long
and varied experience in his profos
sion, and, if teachers, like ghoso in
other professions, are to be "known
by their fruits," he unquestionably
will have to be favorably jjdged; for
this school now sends forth .9vo young
mon to college, who are prepared to
enter the junior class.
We could but remark the high
character of the school. To seo young
men and girls in their _tAhjnk t4'njlat

board correctly, is a IdaIMV rarely
seen in our preparatory schools. A

Owing to the late hour of com

large number of select and original
spechoe, and comipositions,.tltro was

more than a third of the classes of the
school. Tho examination, tlgorofore

Most of the boys, in our judgment, in
this ce orcise, as woell 'as in t extjm
inatlon, acenitted themselvS-hardd
somely. Where all did so well, it is
p)erhaps, invidious to maiko any dis

was so in kooping with the tone And
character of his subject that he exuit

Next followed the original comipo,

young, is highly creditable indeed.

the Southern States have renewed

It is believed that party organization

decided action should at once be tak

well to call a convention to meet in
