.JTHK COMING SPRING?
For some days, or weeks past, we
have haJ charming premonitions of the
coming lovely spring time. The balmy
breath of Heaven, warmed into softer
aod sweeter zephyrs by the glorious
t-un. The gentle springing grass
peeping from neath the dead garniture
of thc fields, (promising again the
expanse of emerald meadow,) and
fringing the side walks. The feathered
warbler, as he greets the morning light
with his inimitable song. The burst?
ing buds, and the modest peach and
plumb blossom, scenting thc air, with
their perfume of promised fruit. The
gentle showers, and the milder voice of
"Jove's dread thunders.'' All these
cow tell that nature is preparing to
merge from her seclusion, and come
forth again, clothed in her gorgeous
robes, to adorn the earth, and gladden
the heart of maa-like a bride arrayed
for her lord. And should not man's
emotions move with responsive impulse ?
Should he not look into nature's smiling
face, and there see reflected the benefi?
cent smiles of Nature's God ? And
?i rec ting Lis glance upward to the
"bespangled heavens," discover pictured
there thc wonderful majesty and per?
fection, glory and power, love and mer?
cy of the Creator?
Let not mao, then, bow his head with
fear and dread ; but, conscious of his
integrity, cf the image in which he was
created, and of his immortality, of hts
intellectual powers, of his high and
noble calling, ?nd of thc superintending
love and care of the Great Father above,
move cn to life's labors and strussles
and disappoint nts, with energy and
with manly courage and with hope and
faith. As the spring time surely comes
to smile upon thc earth, and drive away
thc sombre garb aud chilling blasts of
winter-as sunshine succeeds cloud, so
may mac's heart ever and anon merge
from gloom and sadness and come again
into thc ble&icd experience of joy and
Monday last (sales-day) the crowd in
town was comparatively small ; but we
beard more about iiard times and thc
scarcity of money than have greeted
our ears before for some time. It
seemed to bc almost thc universal cry .
and we could but feel a deep sympathy
with the people. Applications for
"advances" were never more numerous
since the war, our merchants tell us,
with Irss ability to meet the demand.
Surely our people should take heed to
their course, from thc present ex?
HACKING SHADE TREES.
Wc regard this as nothing short of
barbarity. The individual who could
deliberately hack and mutilate, and scar
and wound the lovely oaks of our town,
bas no soul to appreciate the sentiment
or music of " W cod man spare that tree,"
and to render it to the ears of such
would be like "casting pearl before
swine." We are glad to see that our
"City Fathers," watchful of the beauty
and comfort of the town, have put forth
theirprmiunciammto on the subject.
Let the penalties thereof be swiftly
visited upon all offenders in this direct?
NEXT YEARS 21 EAT Ul THE PEN.
Said a substantial, well-doing farmer
to us the other day : "My hogs for
next winter's killing are now in thc pen.
We cannot depend upon allowing our
meat hogs to run out. When I empty
my pens for the smoke house, I put in
at once for the next year. I keep my
pens well littered, and I believe that
the manure taken from those pens and
applied to the soil will make as much
corn as my hogs consume between what,
is known as the fattening season."
Here was a fact, thought we, and an
idea, worth knowing and acting upon
generally in this county. The country
is now actually suffering for tho want
of bacon, with little or DO money to buy
it, and yet the means of borne supply
and independence in this respect are
within the grasp of every farmer. The
gentlemen alluded tp always raised
bis bacon, and .bad enough of it.
PR EPJRATTONI FOB PLajTTTNG
Aie generally behind ia thia section,
and yet, we learned, on Monday, that a
certain planter near Bishop vi i le, began
to plant oom on that day. But Bishop
op ville, yea know, good reader, is always
ahead in snob matters.
HcKAGEN'S DBCG STOKE.
The decided improvements recently
made at this establishment, we doubt
not, ha7e been observed by many. The
neat arrangement around the shelves,
and tbe convenient facilities for com?
pounding Medicines. Thc stock, too,
which has been largely increased. Mr.
GEO. P. MCKAOEN, recently or Man?
ning, returns again to the business at
Sumter with his brother and may now
be there found.
NEW STYLE WINDOW SHADES.
Mr. J. E. STJARES, Furniture Deal?
er, has some new Window Shades,
advertised by him on another column,
that are worthy of notice. They are
handsome and convenient. He keeps
up his stock of Furniture, also his gen?
eral Stock of Merchandise.
THE CAROLINA FERTILIZER.
The pamphlet issued the present year
by Messrs. Geo. W. WILLIAMS & Ce.,
the proprietors of this popular fertilizer,
contains much scientific information in
regard to the pbosphatio deposits from
which it is manufactured. We are in?
debted to them for a copy of it.
Their supplement, distributed through
our circulation last week, was also
worthy of notice, and we beg now to
refer our readers back lo it.
LOSSES PROMPTLY PAID.
We learn that Mr. A. WHITE,
Agent, at Sumter, for the Germanic
Fire Insurance Company, of New York,
promptly paid to Mr. DANIEL FOX
WORTH, the amount of loss recently sus.
taiued by the burning of hisgio bouse, a
few miles from Sumter. The payment was
made in less time than tho limit fixed.
COST OF RAISING COTTON.
At the New Orleans lair last April,
the cost to produce a pound of cotton
was discussed. The conclusion reached
was, that on the best alluvial soils, in a
good season and with close management,
ten cents will make a pound ; but on
the average upland, and with the
average economy the planter looses when
he does not receive ld cents per pound.
ADJOURNMENT OF THE LEGISLA*.
Tuesday, the 7th (yesterday) was
fixed upon for the adjournment of the
Legislature. Up to the time of going
to press, we see nothing about an ex?
tension of thc time again, and suppose
that our legislators have let go the
public teat for a little while.
SUPPLY AND CONSCRIPTION OF
The Savannah Morning News, of
March 3, contains an able article on
this interesting subject, from tho pen
of Mr. J. N. CARUOZO, whose articles
un subjects pertaining to political
economy, finance and iuterna'.ional poli?
tics, have through many years been
recognized as among th? ablest con?
< ri butions to tho Southern press. Our
om humble columns have given forth
the scintillations of bis genius, ?ad we
hope soon to be permitted to greet other
original communications from him.

of the Baltimore Episcopal Mctliadist,
announces the death of the venerable

Thc extensive use of these watches for tho laat
fifteen veers by Railway Conductors, Engineers
and Expressmen, (he most exacting of watch
wearers, has thorough!/ demonstrated the
strength, steadiness, durability and ?cuuracy of
th? Waltham Watch. To satisfy that class in all
these respects, is to decide the question ss to the
real vale? of these time-keepers.
Vere thea 509,000 of these watches are now
speaking for themselves in the pockets of the
people-a proof end a guarantee of their snperi
o: ?ty ever all others.
The soperior organization and great extent of
tba Company's Works at Waltham, enables them
to produce watches at a price which renders
competition futile, and those who buy any other
watch morely pay ?from 25 to 50 per cent more
for their watches than is uecessaay.
These time-pieces combine every improrement
that along experience has proved of real prac?
tical ase. Having had tte refusal of nearly
every invention in watch-making originated in
this country or in Europe, only those were finally
adopted which severe testing by the most ekil
fall artisans in oar works, end long use on the
part of the pablie, demonstrated to be essential to
correct and enduring time-keeping.
Among the many improvements we would par?
The invention and ase of a centre pinion o
peculiar construction, to prevent damage, to the
train by the breakage of main-springs, is original
with the American Watch Company, who, having
had the refusal of all other contrivances, adopted
Fogg's patent pinion as being the best and fault?
Hardened and tempered hair-springs, now
universally admitted by Watchmakers to bo the
best, arc used in all grades of Waltham Watch?
All Waltham Watches have dust proof caps,
protecting the movement from dust, and loosening
the necessary of the frequent cleaning necessary
in other watches.
Oar new patent stem-wind jr, or keyless watch
is already a decided aaecess, end a great im?
provement on any stem-winding watch in tho
American market, and by far the ebeapest watch
of its quality now offered to tha pablie. To those
living ia portions of the United States where
watchmakers do not abound, watches with the
above mentioned improvements which tend to
ensure accuracy, cleanliness, durability and con?
venience, must prove invaluable.

the Company are as follows :
