Ifr The length of the Sheriff s Salen
(now published officially in the Watch

other matters, to which we will give
place next week. _
gST The atteotioo of oar agftrfulturel
readers is particularly directed to the
notice addressed to then by Messrs.
WILSON & SELBY, of Baltimore, and
priuted oo another column.

the Planters' Warehouse, with ita enu?
meration of good things for Christmas,
wil! be sure to catch the eye of the
readers of this issue.

merited UB with a monster Turnip, of j
the Golden Ball variety-5 lbs. 5 os. It [
i-oot only a monster but a beauty.
Tbe seed was obtained at Dr. China's

The public road at DeSohamps' (late

of the County Commissioners is respect?

?A Beraarkable Boy Meeaaatale.**
This is tbe heading given by the
Scientific American of Nor. 25, to a
paragraph highly complimentary of our
yooog iriend CHAS. T. MASON, Jr.
The allusion is to a working model of a
b-riaontal steam engine, with tubular
boiler, sad of the locomotivo type, coo*
grated ia 1869, when the ''remarkable
boy mecbaoic" was but fourteen years of
age. We shall take pleasure io publish?
?og the remarks alluded to io tiur next
Mrs. 0. H. MOSES gives notice that
OD Wednesday, 27th inst., she will give
the first of a scries of Theatrical En?
tertain ru en ts for the benefit of the
Ladies' Monumental Association of
S om ter.
We make no doubt that, as amateur
performances, a high grade of merit
will characterise them. Ssmter has
taleot of this sort, that has met high
compliment io the past, from cultivated
lovers of the drama. And on the occa?
sions referred to, it will doubtless be
greeted by flowing bouses.
Sumter 2Hoa timen lal Aaaoelaiioa.
The communication of Mrs. OCTAVIA
H. .MOSES, and that addressed to her
by K W. .MOISE, Er-q., printed in this
issae. will be found to contain matters
of interest to the Ladies' Monumental
Association of Sumter.
Mr?. MOSES, the President, invites a
meeting on Friday, the 29th inst., with
the view of selecting a design of the
Monument to be erected. We hope the
numbers in attendance upon this meet?
ing will remove all cause for complaint
sich as that contained ta ber commuai
The information communicated by
Mr. MOISE shows that there is now no
longer cause for delay, from monetary
difficulties, and we earnestly urge that
the work be commenced at once. His
liberality, too, will be appreciated, aud
should incite others to further assistance,
that we may build a Monument worthy
the ooble dead of Sumter.
Klug.' Hoaatala in ll Ita ry Se hool.
We beg to direct particular attention
to the notice of this excellent School,
printed on another eoumo. A private
note from Col. A. Coward, the accom?
plished Principal and Proprietor, in?
forms us that tho coodition of public
affairs ic York County bas not in the
slightest degree affected the management
and operation of the School. The pu?
pils are kept so entirely aloof from all
local excitements, by the situation and
discipline of the Institution, that they
are probably safer there than they would
be at their own homes.
It will be sceo that the first session.
the next scholastic year will open 10
February and cloee in June.
