A GERMAN FESTIVAL.
The German citizens of Orangeburg,
according to their preparations, gathered
on Wednesday lest for one of those
happy merry-makings for which their
nationality is so justly Iu nous.
The day was not suspicions but thu
lowering clouds hud no effect to damp
the srdor of the pleasure seekers.
At an early hour in the morning gay
groups were gathering, und by vehicle
or by the bout of Capt. IIalley, were
eoou conveyed to a beautiful spot on the
tuiwk of the river, ucar thu Andrews
Fish trap. ?
The sceno was one of rare bouty. The
dark greenwood, somhre tinted from the
el.Hided sky, forming the background to
in pieturo of festal reunion and huppi
tuces. Tho rustic table und seats, the
groit| ? ill bright utlire seatod iu '
- 4wn* fouri clusterings and in every ]
variety of xttitude, all expressive of re
jkisc and all going to make the hartnon
tons wholo of S most beautiful and peace
r'ul picture. No or augemcnt hud been
neglected, every prcp.irution for convey
ance, for provision, for enjoymeut was
complete and ample. The hum of mer
ry voices soon made the shaded recesses
ol the forest resound with laughing, sil
ver ?ehoe? that floated dofrti the waters of

to the happy scaoc. v V
Under tho tree* the violiugavo forth
soft melody s^d Voices mingled in the
songs of Fatherland. Oh ! how dour
the associations that were atirrcd be
neath those Germau hearts as tho songs
of their native hills, sung in a straugu
laud rose and swelled through the forest
and nwoke to thrilling life the memories
of the far away.
The morning hoars sped away beneath
these influences most happily, and Din
ner was announced. Jl is unnecessary
to remark fliut 'his was a most subs taut
ial, ahum-ant and delightful affair, und
wus enjoyed to .the lullest extent.
Hut alas ! tho clouds, which all the
morning had been tinging the latidicipe
with a dull, lowering, lo ideal tint, were
unable longer to contain themselves or
to refrain from a closer narticipatiru in
the festivity and rushed down most en
thusiastically und mingled most
familiarly with the celebrants.
Of course there was cringing aud
crumpling of attire and soon the bright
V-isious of loveliness which a moment be
fore lighted the landscape with their
beauty, seemed to have melted like so
much sugar from the earth.
It was tuuiultuously resolved to ad
journ to meet a-.'in in the Elliott 11 ill

the bright party scattered aud by jou
vcynueo or by boat returned to the city,
damp in pcrs n but with no damper on
their spirits or resolution to carry out
the ptogramtue ol* festivity.
At an early hour in the evening the
Klliott 11.ill, which had in the interval
been transformed from a court
room into n brilliant scene adapted for
the unity revels of Terpsichore was
ablate with illumination mid tilled with
j a bright tompunv awaiting the signal

I . 'Turns not lone hefVY- the music ii'vl.

and tho invitation was Accepted C'oh

'Ihe programme of the evening was
varied by SOnga aud speech.
German songs again were sung to
pleasing accompaniment im I at an inter

DKSTttvoTtVR Ham, Storm.?A
fearful hail storm passed in the vln'nity
of Hennettsvill, cm Sunday, the 11th
instant. The stones were very large,
varying in size from a bird'.-* egg t>> a
gnnse egg and great damage was done.
The wheat crop socmt to have suffered
tuo>ta hogs i ecse, chickens and turkeys
wen killed, glass windows wore broken,
the fruit was nearly nil beaten from the
trees, groves were trimmed up, and pine
limbs were cut from the trees. The
storm arose in the Wast and moved
Katstwaid over a track about, three miles
wido. Some of the stones wore as large
us eight and leu inches in circumference
They struck the ground with such force
that they would be buried several inches
in the earth All accounts agree that it
was the severest hail storm ever kyown
in that section of country.
At a rehearsal for ?un entertainment,
some time since, a little five-yoar old
Besssc was placed upon a p at form to
reei c a short .poem. She conimonded
very drnvely, but her eyes wanderroh all
around the Church gathering more aftd
more of disappointment info the face.
Sunn the lips began to vniver. and the
little form shook with subs. Her father
stepped frnni behind n pillar, from
whence ho had bedn watching her, and
taking her into his arms said
'?Why, darling, whaj is the matter. I
thought my little my little know the
vcyscs so well.',
