THE NE W Oil A IRMA N?
We call utteution to the notice in
another columu by which it will be seen
that Judge Andrews has becu ap pointed
ehuirman of the Republican party of
this County We endorse fully the
opinion expressed by Mr. KHiott as to
Judge Andrews' qualifications for this
importaut position. . Since the birth of
the Republican party iu this State it has
had no warmer friend, no sinecror mem
ber and oo more "igoroua adherent than
Judge T. C. Andrews.
THE SENATORS HIT?
Candidates for the vnoant Senatorslr.p
are thick as blackberries. Among th*
most prominent are Jadgc T. C.
Andrews, F. R. MeKiul&y, Samuel
Duncan, C. W. Caldwell J. II. Livings
ton, Dr. J. A. Keller, Benjamin Byas,
Harpin Higgs, Dr. O'Cain, and ethers.
Wo write from memory and may have
omitted the names of some who would
like to appear in the list. If so, just
let us know and we will rectify the uiatler
l next week.
Judge Andrews seems to have the
inside track so far.
The merchants havo been j<dly this
week. You could see thorn at tho door
rf every store in Towu watching, with
enger eyes, the numerous bales of cotton
that have been coming iu for the last
.few days, and noxiously wonderiag
where the owners of the snowy fleece
were going to *'pull up." If a waggon
passed the dowu Town stores, every
body ia tlrat quarter looked miserable,
while the faces of the up Towuers
looked like so many happy half moons?
and vice versay tf the cotton carre in
from tho other end of the street. But
enough came to give every oue a
fair share and so, as we have said, there
has been a jully lot of merchants here
Considering the dry nature of geome
trical figures?aquarea, circles, and th*
like?our friend S. R. Melliohamp,
Esq., furnishes a very lively communi
cation upon the question ae to what is
the true shape and form of Lewisville.
Our readers will remark that M-. itfelli
champ docs not dispute 'the position
assumed by us iu fWor of the circular
shtipe of our sister municipality.
We do not see how the can be two
opinions upon the subjeet. Th* act
declares that the town shall oxtcud oue
third of a mile in eac h direction from
II. Ilcnuon's store.
The centre being determined, it only
remains to inquire how many directions
there are, the answer to which is,
that from any givon point there are an
many directions as thero are points In a
oirole?and the number of these, as
mathematicians know, is infinitesimal.
AsA all the lines of direotion being of
the earn* length, the result ia, nooessa
?lgr, a carrier boundary.
We were satisfied from the first that

BON. THOMPSON II, COOKE?
Judge Thompson II. Cooke is enjoying

private letter to us, his Honor say*,:?

sti^engtli and vigor.
DON'T "LISTEN TO TffS MOO KINO
A geutltunnn who has been trav
elling io Virgiuia recently, in a part of
the country where mint juleps and
mocking birds are plentiful, says he has
often heard those appreciative birds
singing the following song of a mom
?'Getting lata! getting late !
Get up! get up! get up!
Jti lip, Ju lip, Ju lip, Jw lip!
Swert, sweet, aweet, sweet, sweet!
Taste, taste, taste, taste !
Get up, get up !
Ju lip, Ju lip, Ju-u-l-Ui'i-p ."'
Our traveller goes ou to say that the
imitation was altogether irresistable and
that the mocking bird is, really, a dan
gerous animal. As we reflect upon it, it
does seem to us that this is aa near what
the mocking bird aaya aa anything we
have ever seen in print, and that he
ought, oertaiuly, to be looked after.
Consequently we advise the Soue of
Tempirance to lay in a aupply of fowl
itig piccea aud ammunition and to "go,"
generally, for the mocking bird.
That largo, unsightly ditch running
alongside Main Street, in Brauchville,
has been boxed and covered over with
earth, adding much to the health and
appearance of the town.
Mr. A. Loryea, one of tho best and
must enterprising merchants of Brauch
villa, lias ju?t bad completed oue of the
largest and best arranged store houses
iu the town. ,
Mr. K. T. R. Smoake was the builder,
aud receive* much praise for the ma
ch amoxi skill displayed.
The ??Palmetto State Base Ball Club
of Braach ville" has ra-orgauited and has
refused to disouas any subject uuconttec
ted with "future victories."
The crope in the vicinity of Branch
villc are generally good.
There was a lively row in our Streets
last Monday. Peter Brown, acting as
constable, endeavored to arrest lsaao
Whittnorc, who demanded Peter's au
thority. So warraut being forth
coming, Isaac etruck out lustily for ''life,
liberty and sacred honor." Mr. Mac
beth came hastily and manfully to
Isaac's rescue, but the constable haJ
already beta re enforced and a pitched
battle began, Iaaao and M; obctb
representing nuc of the bolligoroLt
factions and a whole array of constabUi,
with tho j>osse, the other. Joe went to
grass at an early date but recovered his
pins and succeeded io drawing a liberal
supply of claret from the nearer man.
laaae got in heavily on a neighbor, but,
being seized by a half dosco of the ene
my atone and the same time wsa obliged
to ?ucoumb, not inglorioualy, to superior
numbers. A diversion in tho enjmy's
flank permitted him to rally,and support,
for a moment, a "r%connoisssnce in force"
which was at that juncture advanced by
bia trusty helpmate, but the Cannon of
the Town Council wheeling into sight
just then, Isaac surrendered at discra
tion The Marahal of the day deposit
ed him in the guard house for safe
keeping, but tbs town authoritiea, upon
a couneil of war being held in regard to
the catu* btlli decided that they had no
jurisdiction and lsaao was dismissed
A correspondent ("M") of the Times
says with reference to ths New Street,
"We don't see the names of Judge T. W.
Glover, M. Glover, N. A. Bull sad W.
N. Scovill, on the petition. They are
the gentlemen who will be apt to be the
most hurt or ben tritt ep by this pro
posed New Street. Let as coaault their
wishes fist, sad if they ssy yes, well it
is all right."
Whereupon, with ?11 due respect for
the four geotlomen whoee names are So
unnecessarily brought forward io this
matter, we have to observe that there
are probably some 1496 other rcsidesls
of Oraogcburg who are entitled to a
moderate ?bare of consideration It* pub
lio affair*, some of whom might find it
inconvenient to bo always taking these
gentlemen's permission to do auythiog.
"M." furthcrtays that the Nswa waa
mistaken in stating that Gapt. Istar was
the first to suggest the opening of the
l**t oew street. Our informant was an
old resident of Oraugebufg whs, we
supposed, knew all about it. Upon
further inquiry, however, oliove we
were mistaken. We cheerfully make
the acknowledgment, and accord to
Capt. Briggmann the praise whioh is so
justly his due.
The same correspondent advises the
rimes to "treat ths Street matter with
contempt," aud to go io heavy ou Agri
culture. This is good advice, and we
hope it will be followed. Our neighbor
is well posted in regard to the crops, the
laat of the 10,000 recipes for pickles,
&.o., and manages to run a very enter
taining and excellent Agricultural col -
umn. But it isn't atrong in other
matters, evidently. Let it follow "M'a"
advice and retire from pul c life to the
leaa brilliant but equally honorable
I and far more comfortable sphere of
"The Farm," "Tho Garden" and
Household Economy." *
