Mr. Lucas Iias submitted a plan for the
new Court House to tho County Commis

payers aro interested, we Buggcst that it be
submitted to the tax "union with a request
that they make any suggestions they may
have. As the Court House will stand per

Was in town on Wednesday last canvass

Legislature. He lias developed considcra

Illings now look, has the inside track fur the
House. Wo have no particular preference
in this matter, but the majority of tho peo
ple seem to say that ltccdish is the man.

were present nt seven 1 of bis speeches, nnd
they were always temporals and cone-lint iry

give mty such ndvice to the colored people,
and we are glud that he has given the ,4cJr

we never believed it from the beginning.

Not Iho cily, but a big pile of its many

A VISIT TO HR. RIG GS' SHOPS?
A. few days ago wo paid a visit to the
carriage csiabalishment of th's gentleman,
and Iho bustlo nnd noiso which made the
p'neo Pvely, ovMenced tho fact that worn
was &oing on around us. Mr. Itiggs' wood
shop is a J-i"go two siory building, in which
he has a number of Amt class workmen,
hard nt it every day, except Sunday. Mr.
P.e.till B?pci'.'iilumls this doportmctit nnd
ects to it that everything that comes from
1. s hands is put up substantially. If a buggy
or ca? riago, it goes from him to tho black
smith shop, where it is ironed by experienced
workmen, in that line, and is returned to
tho wood shop and carried up siairs, where
it is trimmed and painted. There we found
our old friend, Mr. J. A. Williams, with his
"brush and paint, always ready to put on the
finishing'touches; and you may hot that wdien
ho gets through with his part of the job, that
an unsightly looking buggy stands forth
??a thing of benuty." Jim does such pretty
work sometimes that he cannot help but
soliloquizing to hims If, "How did 1 learn
to do that so well ?" The fact ?f it ie, he ]
can paint a buggy in a slyle to suit the
most fastidious taste. From hero wo wont
(o the shop where Mr. KiggB stores bis
ready mado buggies and ca iages, and
took a look at several neat jobs. A goo 1
quality about his work lies in the sound
quality of the malrials used, in the budding
of buggies, i.e. He Uses nothing for wheel*
but the best white hickory, and other woods
equally us g?od. Next we went to the big
establishment, where a steam engine drives
co.ion gins, plaining and tut ning machines,
grist and Hour mills from morning till
night, without any signs of fatigue. Here
each man seems to understand bis business
pcifcctly. Some arc ginning cotton, whi'e
o he. s are feeding the plaining machine,
which tongues and grooves from six to seven
thousand fecet of lumber n day; Mr. Riggs
showed us plains of his own manufacture,
ior the making of moulding of any size or
shape. A peculiarity about Mr. Rigg1*
cotton gin is that it improves the quality
of cot.on in passing through the saws and
brushes, which makes it sell for one and a
half or two ncnts more on the pound The
f.rct of r hi, the work carried on by Mr.
Ri;-.gs is hum en SC, and a visit lo his estab
lishment is really a pleasure. Everything
goes on there like clock work, nndthc work
if tied oiu its oV a superior quality.
