of the Bethel Church Sunday School
located twelve 'miles southwest of
Wimisboro. For -some time past at
deep interest has been manifested in
the Sunday school cauiise and 111)
class, which las proven thus far an
entire success ; as both studelts and
Uichers have einced an carnest und
commiiendable zeal 'in the disobairgo of
of their duties, We knoiw of no comi
munity that takes a livlior interest in
thd mioral training of the youth, and
have seldom been ' permnitte'd to hiavo

'mgspetaelo than we did at the pie

filled and the services oodlmnced with
ani -anthleml by the choir. From a
knowledge we had of the fine attain
monts in vocal music of some of the
choir we anticipated something rich.

sanguine expetaltionis. After other

on this Ocansion lhe seemied to be in

handsomeo complimnent to the choir lhe
said, that it was far from his intention
or desire to mar the festivities of the oc

-their names would oveor liveo fresh and
greon, insoribed 'oh the tablots. of rue..

feeling and touching produced quita a
sensation, and caused many a tear-to
course its way down the cheeks, not
onily of the tender, lovely female, but
those also of the sterner sox. Thmo
speaker then panod on to set forth tihe
great honefits whinh a accru.d to
society from a proper conductance of
Sunday Schools and highly lauded the
institution which has contributed so
much kto *-advance, intellectually and
morally the great mass of our people.
In conclusion he addrdssed himself
particularly to the ladoles and endoav
ored to impross on thom that their's
was a great responsibility, in as much
as the mother, nino casds out of ton
held the destinios of the child in her
own hands and showed conclusely by
several true and leautiful illustra
tions that first impressions were gonor
ally most lasting. But we are doing
iiijistico to the speaker in atteniptig

Their is such an carnestness of -nan
ner about him that we are borne along
with ihs remarks almost unconsciously.
There were other speechos mado
also by the Rev. Gee. Boggs, Rev: J.
A. Cauthern, and Col. Finley. We
regret that we have neither time nor
space to give even a synopsis of thoir re
imarks, suflice it to say they wero very
appropriate and well received, after
the speaking was concluded and tho4

formed and cond-Acted to the table
which was as is usually said (groaning
under the weight of good things.) But
in this iinstance Mossrs, Editors we as
sure you it was literally true, the sup

whole brigade.) We ' never saw a

We are glad to see . that although
the citizens of this section were so un
fortunate as to live -within the belt
through whic ih the arch incendiary
passed and were. in niany instances
completely burned out and robbed of
everything they posssessed .almost,
still .they exhibit that chcorfulness of
spirit, that nobleness of hoart, that
rises superior to every unavoidable

those generous and noble inpulses that
were over characteristic of true South

Tire Present Situation,
MI~ss~s. EDITons : A few weeks ago
I wrote for the IlIntn a fc*v items on
the "popuhttion, era, &c., of Fairfield.
Seone of these I may have occasion to
refer to again in the course of soe
observations on the p'resenmt condition
and future prospects of jhe Districts.
Allow me here to correct an error in
the last sentence of the artiele alluded
to. ThPle sentence should read " The
amnouint of cotton raised in the State in
1860 was 200 pounds per head, this
District no doubt raised mnore; per
haps twice this quantity."
Then (18630) we ivce einjoying a de.
gree of prosperity rarely surpassed,
,but, how changed ! Since thiat time
prod uction~ has dinmin ished, taxes have
increased, the District has lost, aecordd
lng to an estimate, the dotnils' of
which it is not necessary to'givo.horo,
emancipation out ofvi'w, three mil
ion dollars, and many of tiro most ac
tive zfad useful citizens have porished,
leaving behind them helpless widows
and orphans with ve'ry slen lor means
In addition to the mnateital losses
many individuals are dispirited' to aw
extent that aiounts almost to do
spondoney and, thbugh it eannot be
doied that the jiropect, all things
considered is rather discouraging, de
cidedly so in eomparison . with the
p~ast, yet it is eltto encourage such a
feeling as little as possible, for it wihl:
necessarily effect injuriously theo ma..
trial prosperity of the country. In.
avoidhing this it is. well, in order to*
avoid likewise the other extreme to
look the subject full in thefaco- andl
with both eyes open.
,What then is the situation, wfIat aro
the difficulties, and whate the reniedy ?
,A people impoverished by war and
invasion, one-half of -the iinpwoved
lands reduced, by the system of culti'
vation heretofore pursued, to a situa
thon in which they are utterly valuwa
less, -The system- of -labor to which we
have boech nomistomod completely
revolutionized, a country in a measuare
desolated by the destruction Qf im
provements, the social effect of the
oceurrences of the war, and finally the
crops of the present year almost a fail
nrc, are the- chief of the zidvorse fea
turns of the situation. On .the other
hand theo intelligence and energy of a
people anmong whom personal industry
and economy have become more r'epud
table, a soil yet capable, albused as it
has boon, of smmprtin tre ..n
its present population, the faoilitios
natural ind artlcial, for manufactu.:
ing sucessfully, and.ltst, though por
haps not least, the fact that tho'hills
and valleys among the rooks a'nd
streams of which we sported in child:
hood, have begotten associations 'that'
will- oporate against emigration, and
stinultte to. exertion here ; those are!
the hopeful features in the ease, and'
these render it possible that with the'
prper exertion we may yet surpass our
foriner prosperity. zv is. -
