We have heard, in the past few days,
many reports and rurnors that would
be hard even for the reliable gentlemen

One to receive rumors or reports with
imany grains of allowance,
This was the case on Wednesday
night last, to which we briefly alluded
in our last issue. A report was brought
into our town that the enemy were at
Poplar Springs-every one in the con
inunity, knowing where our Poplar
Spring was located-about 9 miles
:fron Winnsboro,-camae to the conclu.
sion that the enemy were again upon its,

Thus it is. A report is heard of one
thting, and in order to give as mnch self
importance . to its second retailer as is
possible, it receives a thorough coating
over to make it more re li-able. Wher
will these nny rumors cease? Al:
should receive everything they hear,
that is the leaqt sensational, with doubt
and frown down upon every oue found
giving publicity to such reports. They
