THE SOUTHERN GUARDIAN.
The Columbia Phoenix having stated that the
publication of the Guardian was "indefinitely post?
poned." Mr C. P. Pelham addresses a note to the
editor of that paper, informing him that the Guar?
dian will appear in due season and that its publi?
cation is a settled matter. Owing to a protracted
illness and the necessity of arranging other busi?
ness, Mr. Pelham has been delayed in meeting ibe
demand for an enterprising and independent news?
paper at the capital. We are glad to know, how
ever, that he has not relinquished the idea, and
that in good time the Guardian will be sent forth
to its thousands of old admirers all over the State
We have heard of a gentleman, in an adjoining
county, who proposes to subscribe for one hundred
copies when it appears. This sort of encourage?
ment will place the Guardian upon a safe footing
at once, and will build uj, and establish an organ
worthy of support from the intelligence and re?
spectability of the State.
THE SOTJTHEBN RAILROAD.
The Atlanta Intelligencer of. last Saturday pub?
lishes a telegram dated Cincinnati, June 4, te the
effect that the City Council had adopted Chatta?
nooga, by an unanimous vote, as the terminus of
the proposed Southern railroad. As the Charles
ton Neu* remarks, this decision is not final, as the
action,of the Council must be submitted to the
people for approval. ' It is probible, however, that
tile prtssure of private interests will cause the
Chattanooga route to be permanently adopted.
This action upon the part of Cincinnati, al?
though unexpected from her ancient promises, will
not affejt unfavorably or delay 'he completion of
Ute Blue Ridge Railroad. Within the list week,
Msumnce? have been given that Louisville will tit
ance extend her system of railway to the Tennes
* see line in the direction of Knoxville, and that the
Xnoxvile and Kentucky Road will connect with
Louisville in eighteen or twenty months, thus af?
fording connection with Louisville and Cincinnati.
IMPORTANT TO HOLDEBS OF BANK BILLS.
An exchange gives .the following list of Brinks
in Sou'h Carolina now in course of liquidation,
namely: Bank of the State of South Carolina,
Bank of Camdeo, People's Bank, Planters' nnd
Mechanics' Bank. The Farmers' and Exchange
Bank has been closed up, and its bills are conse?
quently worthless.. Under an act of the Legisla?
ture, all of the- Banks in. this State are required to
wind up their business- ty the first day of Decem?
ber next, and many will be settled, up very Boon.
As the notes not presented before that time will he
lost altogether, it is important that holders should
make some disposition of them and endeavor to
realize their value at this time.
The following Banks i i Georgia are also in liqui?
dation, viz: Bank of Columbus, Bank of Com?
merce, Bank of Savannnh, Bank of the State of |
Georgia, City Bank of Augusta, Farmer's and
Mechanics' Bank. Planters Bank of Savannah,
Union Bank. The Bank of Augusta and the Au?
gusta Insurance and Banking Company have been
settled up, and their notes now out are valueless.
NEWLY ELECTED DEMOCRATIC MEMBERS OF
In the recent county elections, we observe the
gratifying fact that the Democratic members of the
Legislature are to be strengthened in their efforts
to resist the tide of Radicalism. Abbeville and
Pickens counties are contributing solid material to
fihis end. Our worthy friend, James E. Hagood,
Esq., has blfn elected Representative from Pick
en?> to supply a vacancy caused by the resignation
of Dr. W. T. Field. Mr. Hagoou's qualifications
as a business man are widely known, while he is
endowed by Harare- with ao even temper and a
goodly share of common sense. He will make a
true representative of bis native section, jealously
guarding its interests, and firmly npbolding prin?
ciples of justice and right. We congratulate the
voters of Pickens upon their choice. In Abbeville,
Col. James S. Cothban was elected Senator by a
small majority. It will be remembered that this
county has not been represented as yet in the
State Senate, owing to the rcfusual of Mr. Vor.su
to qualify. The election to fill the vacancy was
closely, contested, and we learn that the Radicals
' afterwords oought to nbow "fraud and violence''
on the port o? ibe Democrats. In this they failed,
notwithstanding aa investigation by the Commis?
sioners of Elections, lasting ?e vend days, and they
were finally compelled to declare Col. Cotbkax du?
ly elected, although they reducod his majority to
almost nothing. His peat will probably be contes?
ted. We rejoice, however, that there is even a
small chance for gallant old Abbeville to be repre?
sented by one o'' her truest sons and ablest defen?
ders. Wc know him well, and have a high appre?
ciation of the manly character and brilliant attain?
ments-of Cpl. ContUA.v. If permitted to t/tlce his

For the Anderson Intelligencer,
JJu. Editor: Having been bo fortunate as to
attend a Fishing Tarty the other day, I thought a
short account of it might not be uninteresting to
some of your many readers.
The plaoe seleoted was the Mill of Mr. A. C.
Jackson, on. Rocky River, twehe miles below An?
derson. It -was on Saturday, June 5th, and I
don't think we could have been better suited-in
the weather if we had been permitted to order it
ourseLvcs. Dame Natare did her part well. The
scenery, was very good, indeed- On (he one hand,
the wood covered' hill-side, broken with its ravines
and hollows was indeed beautiful to behold; on
the opposite side, the scattering growth o( trees
made it moro easily traversed, and yet it was sha?
dy enough to make it comfortable. Nature did
not furnish us with a water-fall, but the mill-dam
was a pretty good substitute ; over it an immense
amount of. water poured, with a loud roar, and
wenLoff in a ewcepiug current.
The crowd began to assemble before nine o'clock.
?The fishing began about eleven. Then you could
have seen a couple, with rod and line, going up
the 3tream, nnother down?in fact, in every direc?
tion. Seldom would you see more than two to?
gether ; but that <s not strange, you know. I
don't think there were many twimmera caught, or
at least 1 didn't see many ; but I did see some big
walkers caught, and without much trouble, too.
At two o'clock we were all called to a beautiful
grove, where we found a bountiful dinner spread
upon the grass, for whiob the ladies who got it
up deserve many thank*. We discarded knives
and forks, and as to tables we had none ; all of
which 1 liked much better than if we had had all
the conveniences of a well ordered household,, as
it made it seem more like a dinner in the woods.
In looking over the assemblage while they were at
dinner, I was satisfied there was at least one hun?
dred and twenty-five persons present. After din?
ner the crowd again dispersed?some few to their
homes, but nearly all remained for some hours.
In the afternoon fishing was done on the hillside?
in buggies and other like places. At five o'clock
the party was entirely broken up, or nearly so.
I think all went away well pleased, unless it was
dome bashful swain who had been "cut out" by
some one of more courage. I never in my life
beheld a more interesting assemblage of young
people, especially the fair sex. I thiuk that sec?
tion of our county is greatly blessed. When I
left I came to the conclusion that the various tribes
of the fish-kind bad not been disturbed very much
during the day; but I know that tne bachelor fra?
ternity sustained some very heavy losses, or at
least it will by this day's frolic.
What meaneth this? A wood, a river!
And see ! there's a gay crowd by it.
Wi.o are these bold ones ihiu dare to rob
This place of its wonted quiet ?
Ah, I see! 'Tis a few gay ones who
Have assembled to-day to fiah ;
And well may I call it a gay crowd,
For 'tis as gay as heart could wish.
New, see! they are all off to their work,
And drop their books in the water;
There they sit?a youth, with smiling face,
Whimpering to somebody's daughter.
Metbinks the fish may feel very safe
It fishers are not more zealous ;
"Yes, yes," some are beginning to say,
"He is indeed very jealous."
Ah! there's a party down by the bridge? i
One of them has a dress of pink;
She has succeeded in hooking one,
And has thrown him far from the bvink.
But she has been more successful still*
And I am firm in my belief
A certain young man has lost his ueart,
And I think that she is the thief.
I've been told that there's a cruel god,
Who is blind and uses a bow ;
And I know that he is here to-day.
As (he future, I'm sure, will show.
But if 1 write here all that I see.
I will not get through very soon ;
Tet I will say that few who are here
Will forget the fifth day of June.
For the Anderson Intelligencer.
Pleasaxt Home, S. C, June 7, 1869.
Dear Sir : Thinking that the numerous readers
of your valuable paper would like to know some?
thing of the farms and people of the Northern
portion of Anderson County, actuates me to con?
tribute an humble article.
First, we will notice the farm of Mr. J. B. W.,
one mile North of Concord Church, which we find
to be a model farm. The wheat crop very good,
?and corn looks well; in fact, the prospect for
breads!uffs are very flattering, which we should
consider a great blessing and ever be thaukful,
knowing as we do that since the days that Joseph's
brethren went down into Egypt to buy corn there
has been a great struggle with the human race to
make bread ; and it seems as though the land
has about consented to pay homage to "King Cot?
ton" once more. The farm is under good fence,
well stocked, and in a thriving condition.
We will uext notice the furm at Hickory GroTe,
where every excellence seems to have gathered,
and order (which is the first law of Heaven) rules.
The. grove is a perfect bower, a?d lovely, too?
shaded by majestic hickory and stately oaks ; the
residence elegant, the inmates intelligent, inter?
esting and clever. The farm ia under the super?
vision of Mr. L., who seems to understand his
business. The Grove is six miles from Anderson
C. H., where the Hamburg and Wiison Ferry roads
The farm of Mr. F. J., nine miles from Ander
con, though not on so large a scale, seems to be
conducted with science and judgment. Hia cot?
ton looks promising and his wheat, the best I have
seen. I think I can safely say it will make twen?
ty bushels per acre, without any fears of having
my judgment called t? account or my veracity any
The farmers seem in much belter spirits than
they were one month ago, as the warm rains and
hot sunshine have started their crops to growing
very fast. Even formers have some pleasant
times. Of course they wi'l, under tho most sys?
tematic And well arranged administration of
affairs, meet with annoyance and disappointments.
What condition of life or business calling is ex?
empt ? But their minds are comparatively free
from care compared with those engaged in trade
and other pursuits of industry. In the enjoy?
ments of the fanner consist the charm of rural
lite. They are the outpourings, the gushing of
good feeling. ?8 contrasted with artificial city life,
where the card is made to represent the counten?
ance, and a call within prescribed hours is the ex?
pression of friendship.
The people of this section arc generally intelli?
gent and weil posted. I suppose the Intelligencer
is a regular visitor to every family. If it is not,
they only need to be reminded that it is still pub?
lished at Anderson, at the very low price of two
dollars and a half per annum. I think that at
any o4 blie gatherings of the people around here,
if you were present, you could get a score of sub?
scribers. I don't ineau at preaching, for I don't
know that an Editor ever goes, but public meet?
ings ot a business character.
1 was bo very fortumue as to be at a Fishing
Party on the 5th of June, at Mr*. .Morris' bridge
across Six uud-Tweuty, where we had a very gay
time. Fished until all were tired with fishing and
fish, then repaired-to the house of our friend J.
H., where we had "music sweet," and a few of us
joined in the mazy dance to drive dull care away,
after which we returned to the creek and fished
until all parties were satisfied, and adjourned sine i
\die. OCCASIONAL. 1
OUB CABPET-3AG GOVEBNOR EXPLAINS TO
HI8 OWN SATISFACTION.
We find the annexed article, from the Paris
Free Kentuchian, going the rounds of the press :
A Political Martyr?Gov. Scott, or Soutit
Carolina, Explains Why he is Governor,?Be?
ing introduced, while in Cincinnati, to the gentle?
man who signs himself as above, and being im?
pressed with his fine appearance and pleasant
manners, we wondered why a mau who comported
himself so agreeably could find the amount of
pure brass necessary to fit him for the position of
carpet-bag Governor. To satisfy our curiosity on
this point we approached the subject as delicately
as possible, and after politely explaining the fa?
vorable impression he had made upon our mind,
we said to him :
?'Now, Governor, we would really like to know
how you, a native of Pennsylvania and a citizen
of Ohio, can have the cheek?excuse the slang
phrase, out it is expressive, and not intended to
offend?to set yourself up as Governor of the
proud, aristocratic State of South Carolina, and
wear the honors and emoluments of the office
"Well," was the answer, "I have no doubt that
from your stand-point I must appear in a most un?
enviable light?very much like a scoundrel, in
fact. But this is my side of the story: I was
taken to South Carolina against my will, having
been captured during the war. I liked the State,
and at the close of the war I invested largely in
real estate and settled among the Carolinians. I
did not desire the position of Governor, and was
induced to take it only by the earnest entieaty of
many of the native citizens, who merely preferred
me to other carpet-baggers. I am now a bona fide
citizen of the State, and am here to advance her
interests by securing, if possible, another railroad
connection with the North and West."
It will surprise tho decent people of South Car?
olina to know that "many of the native citizens"
earnestly entreated the modest and immaculate
Scott to tako the position of Governor?a posi?
tion evidently going a-begging, according to his
side of the story. It will further surprise them
that he "invested largely in real estate" at the
close of the war. They will likewise be astonish?
ed to learn that "he did not desire the position of
Governor." According to the other side of the
stery, which has never been successfully contra?
dicted, Gov. Scott sought the nomination, and
even went so far as to- spend hundreds of dollars
to secure this-boon from the native negroes and
renegades who composed largely the nominating
caucus; up to thai time, so far as we havis learn?
ed, he had never invested one dollar in real es?
tate, and has since only bought some cheap prop?
erty with the pickings of bis oSke. As to the
native citizens, only scalawags and negroes have
ever owned "the soft impeachment."
A FIRST CLASS BOARDING SCHOOL IN NEW
A correspondent of the Edgefield Advertiser,
over the signature of " Mavourneen," writes
charmingly as to the appointments and round of
duties in a first-class Boarding School in New
York. The head of tho establishment is a native
ef this State, and as some our readers might wish
to know the location and merits of such a School,
we give the concluding extract from the letter re
ferred to, wherein the accomplished principal is
And, now, who is at the head of this thoroughly
useful and elevated school! She is Mrs. Edward
B. White, of Charleston, S. C. Col. Edward B.
White and his brother, Dr. Octavius White, both
now living in New York, are natives of Charles?
ton, where they lived until within a very few
years past, and where their social position was
always of the highest. Mrs. White being broken
up in her old home by the fortunes of war, and
having influential friends in New York, has come
hither, and established the School of which I
write. She is a lady of the most thorough educa?
tion, a fine and experienced musician, an accom?
plished linguist; and, more than all this, a soft,
gentle, pious, conscientious woman. 1 know that
in the South now there is a deep prejudice against
sending young persons to Northern schools. As
regards this prejudice, I say nothing. But should
there be those in our State who would like to Bend
a daughter to New York to school, they would be
wise to consider the claims of Mrs. White, of
Charleston, No. 2, West 43rd street.
AFFAIRS IN CUBA.
Washington despatches state that the force un?
der Gen. Jordan had succeeded in joining the
Cutfon forces, after several fights, in all of which
the Spaniards were repulsed with serious loss.
Gen. Jordan's loss was slight, not over forty-five
in killed ar-d wounded. lie saved his artillery,
arms and ammunition, and had with him 1700
new rifles, of the most approved pattern. Anoth?
er expedition left the Southern coast on the 29th
u.U., numbering 475 men, for the purpose of join?
ing Gen. Jordan's command, and all of them were
ex-Federal and Confederate soldiers. From telia
ble information, it is stated that the men and muni
lions of war have safely landed and are now with
the Cuban army. The expedition was in charge
of Col. De Rcsst, formerly of the Confederate
tinny, from Louisiana. The general news from
Cuba is unimportant.

LOCAL NEWS IN BRIEF.
Keese & McCui.lt.?This firm will continue to
buy and sell Real Estate, gold and silver, old bank
bills, &c. Persons iudebted to them are notified
to cnrll and settle without delay. Office, No. It
Granite Row, up stairs.
Saleday.?The few persons in attendance on
last Monday suggested the thought that the peo?
ple were not apprised as to the time when saleday
arrives. We prefer, however, to account for the
sparse attendance on the ground that the farmers
were too busy in their wheat, cotton and corn
fields. One tract of land, containing 394 acres,
was sold by the Sheriff, and brought $1,250.
The Weather and Crops.?The heavy rains of
last week resulted in no serioos damage to the
crops, we believe. HarvesL begun this week, and
there is every indication of an average yield of
wheat. The cotton prospoct is better, and we hear
some farmers regretting that they did not wait
awhile before plowing up their early planting.
Corn is highly promising and.growing vigorously.
New Firm.?The announcement is made in to?
day's issue lhat Messrs. Cater & Martin have pur?
chased the stock of Keese & McCuiAY, No. 10
Granite Row, and will henceforth be found ready
to supply the wants of friends and customers with
everything in the way of general merchandize.
We wish the young gentlemen abundant success,
and bespeak for them a liberal share of patronage.
OrrERS to Sell Cheap.?At the comer of the
old Anderson Hotel, Mr. C. A. Reed offers to sup?
ply the people with every variety of goods at the
lowest cash, prices. His stock is complete and ex?
tensive, and we are confident that purchasers can
obtain bargains from bim. Remember, however,

Captored and Abandoned Property.?In June,
1865, there were received at the Treasury Depart?
ment three large wooden boxes, said to contain
valuables, turned over by the War Department for
safe keeping. These boxes have been lying ever
since in the vaults of the Treasury, Wut. were to?
day opened through the efforts of a United States
Senator, some of whose constituents were suppos?
ed to be interested. A committee, composed ot
officers of the War and Treasury Departments, wit?
nessed the carrying out of the joint order of the
two departments. The boxes were found to con?
tain exceedingly valuable invoices of diamonds,
pearls, necklaces, watches, car-rings, hrouches,
rings, chains, seals, and all manner of rare and
expensive jewelry, to the value of many thousands
of dollars. The most valuable property, however,
which the boxes contained was a very large amount
of gold and silver plate, consisting of pitchers,
salvers, spoons, knives, urns, kc some of which
was thought to have been more than a hundred
years old. One of the boxes contained some very
rich wearing apparel for ladies?silks, velvets,
laces, kc, besides an incredible amount of Con?
federate notes and bonds, and notes of State banks.
There was also a small amount of specie, both gold
and silver. The boxes were about the size of or?
dinary dry goods boxes; and the value of their
contents is variously estimated at from $20,000 to
$100,000. Many of the articles were stamped
with the family crests, initials, or monograms of
the owners, and all were of the finest and most
costly description. The boxes were sent by the
Provost Marshal General of the Army of the Ten?
nessee to the War Department in this city, and Sec?
retary Staunton turned them over to Treasurer
Spinner, subject to future action. The valuables
are supposed to have Leen taken possession of by
Sherman's men in Georgia and other States, where
they had been abandoned by fleeing inhabitants.
In some cases they were taken from banks, which
had ceased to do business upon the approach of
the Federal army. The officers of both depart?
ments are uncertain of their duty in the matter of
the disposition of this property. Some hold that
it should be returned, under proper restrictions
and proof, to the owners, if they can be found.
Others believe the articles belong to the Govern?
ment, under the laws of Congress, and that they
should be sold, and the proceeds placed in the
Treasury: while still others affirm that neither ihe
War nor the Treasury Department has any authori?
ty in the premises, and that a special act of Con?
gress should be called for. Nothing has yot been
done, and the valuables have been returned to the
vaults of the Treasury.
A Negro Insurrectionist Killed.?From the
Elberton Gazette, we learn that a negro man was
killed near Lexington Court House on Friday, 28th
ult. It seems that he, in connection with a num?
ber of others, had entered into a plot to massacre
the inhabitants and then bum the town of Lex?
ington. One of their number, from some cause,
exposed the hellish plot of these fiends, where?
upon warrants were issued for the arrest of the
guilty parlies. The Sheriff, with a posse of men,
attempted to arrest some of the negroes, wheu
this one refused to surrender himself, and defied
the authority of the Sheriff by attempting to
shoot some of his party, when ho received several
shots in his body, which resulted in almost in?
