Mr. Editok: A party very pleasn.n11

tlio morning of tlio 13.li May, to attend
a picnic at or near Piorcotown,
Anderson couity, but thero being
another picuic at Slabtown, a few
miles distant, ti e citizens of Pierce*
town and vicinity, deemed it prndont
to postpone thoirs for a (uturo time.
Hut Mr. Editor, it was quite a treat
to the party, or at least a portion of
it, f r we never before had (lie pleasure
of passing through that country. |
Wo passed a great many boautiful 1
residences and delightful farms in n
liigh Qtato of cultivation. Cotton is
looking line, receiving it6 first plowing.
Corn crops promising?wheat
crop as line as we ever paw. Traveling
a beautiful road we passed
many beautiful flower gardens, which
sent lorlh their sweet perfume*,1
making everything lovely, and thore
being only one or two 6inall rivuleti

great hospitality and kind noes by
Mrs. Neal, Mr. Neal being absent
on our arrival, but retained boloro
wo took leave of his pleasant borne,
and we were made to feel pleasant
wimo enjoying ins company and
hospitality. To add interest and
plcaBuro to our party, wo had the
oxqnieit pleasure of meeting Mies
Salic Neul there, wh^jh added much
to the pkasurea ot our party. Soon
after our arrival at Mr. Noal'a, wo
hoard that there was to he a meeting
of Good Templars near there in the
alternoon, and wore strongly solicited
to spend i lie. evening, it wo were

incuts that could bo jetton tip, but
our visit was a hurried one, and wo
reluctantly declined the kind invitatiiii.
Wo learned that the Lodge
had boon organized iccenlly, and that
it numbered about seventy live or
one hundred n.embers, and was in a
growing and prosperous condition.
Ono of our party, ho*vover, not bo~

for the Legislature from L'ickeno,
and aIbo a catulidalo at largo tor

fair eox, at least so much bo that they
being Good Templars, ho has since
joinod tho Older himself. He will
willingly content himself with one
vote at large, l>nt t >r the Legislature.
ho wants nil ol Pickona.
On taking our leave of Mr. Noal's,
wo soon found our solves at Piorcctown,
some five or six miles distant,
where wo found a Democratic Club
convenod, and being strong Democrats,
we wero constrained to stop
and give our feeble ell'ortH in pros
muting democracy. On taking oui
loavo of tho club meoliiig, our attention
was noxt drawn to' tlio fino
looking orchards uonr cach rcsidoncc
on the way, but noticed that there
waa but lit'lo fruit. No peachoa ot
