Thursday Morning, July 1st, 1869.
We are requested to state that there will
be Divine Service in the Presbyterian Church at
this place on next Sabbath, at 10} o'clock a. m.
We understand that tho Surveyors of the
Air Line Railroad are now encamped within a mile
or two of this place. We were not apprised that
a survey of the Route in this county was intended
to be made so soon, and have not now the time to
ascertain any particulars.
THE WEATHER.
The Thermometer yesterday, in one of the cool?
est rooms in town, and beyond the influence of
reflected heat, stood at 91?. To-day, at 9} o'clock,
it reaches 86?.

CIRCUS AND MENAGERIE.
Our circus going fxiandsvwill be pleased to learn
that on Wednesday, 7th of July, Col. C. T. Ames'
mammoth New Orleans Circus- and Menagerie,
"four thows in one," will exhibit at this plaoe.
Oar exchanges speak in very high terns of this
sompary, and the collection of wild animals is
said to- be fine. Remember the day and govern
yourselves accordingly.
A REMARKABLE MEMORY.
There is a young lady residing in this Villrge,
about. 16 or 17 years of age, who has memorized
"The Lady of the Lake." That famous poem by
Sir Walter Scott seems to be a favorite of the
ladies. It is a very remarkable instance of the
retentneness of memory, and although most read?
ers would have been contented with memorizing
its most striking passages, yet her fancy seemis to
have embraced the entire poem. We understand
that its recitation takes her seven hours, and we
venture the assertion that this was more than Si
Waltxi: Scott could have done himself after
writing it.
COMMENCEMENT EXERCISES IN DUE WEST.
We learn from the Abbeville Banner that the
"Examination in the Colleges at Due West will be?
gin on Friday, July 9th, and close the Tuesday
following. The Annual Sermon to the Settior
Class in the two Colleges will be preached by Rev.
D. 0. Puilxips, of Louisville, Geo., on Sunday, the
11th. On Tuesday night, the diplomas of the two
literary societies in Erskine College will be deliv?
ered by their respective representatives, with the
usual responses from members of the class. The
Annual Address before these Societies will be de?
livered by Gen. John S. Pbesto.v, on Wednesday
morning, the 14th, which will be Commencement
Day in Erskine College. The Annual Essay of the
Alnmnsean Association of the Female College will
be read by Miss Corbie Watson, of this village.
Immediately after the reading of the Essay, the
Address of the Alumni Association of Erskine
College will be delivered by Rev. R. W. Brice, of
Chester. The Annual Address before the Amelian
Literary Society of the Female College will be de?
livered by Rev. W. W. Hicks, of Charleston, on
Thursday morning, the 15th, which will be Com
mencement Day in the Female College. This pro.
gramme indicates a rich feast of reason, and the
occasion promises much interest and attraction.
HABEAS CORPUS.
' Col. Jesse McGee, William A. McGee, and
Wji. Cuamblee, who were recently arrested by one
Jerry Hollixsheao, a deputy constable of the
State, for the supposed murder ot Charity Norris,
otherwise called Charity Long, a colored woman,
were to-day brought up before his Honor Judge
Orb on habeas corpus. The McGee's were repre?
sented by Messrs Reed & Brown, and Chahblee
by Mr. B. F. Whitner. The deputy constable
had been notified that the application would be
made, that he might be present and make any
counter showing, as were also the Chief Constable
and the solicitor, but none of them were present.
The parties were detained, as it would seem, upon
the affidavit of the deputy constable, who is a
stranger in this county, that he had reasonable
grounds to believe that the parties charged were
guilty; but what those grounds were, are matters
of conjecture. The affidavits submitted by the
counsel for the defence, showed very conclusively
that the prisoners could not have been guilty of the
offence charged. This was an aggravated murder,
and it is to be hoped that its perpetrators may be
discovered and brought to punishment; but in this
instance we think the constable has been mista?
ken. The testimony of the husband of the mur?
dered woman, as read on the above application,
Was that the murderers of his wife were negroes.
Judge Orr, under these circumstances, admit?
ted the McGee's to bail, each entering into bond
in the sum of $500, with two or more sureties in
the sum of $500; and Chambi.ee on his entering
into bond in the like sum, with two or more sure
lies in the sum of $1,000. The reason of the
distinction was on account of the minority of
Chamblee.
ANOTHER IMPORTANT LEGAL DECISION.
The Supreme Court of Georgia has ciecicled that
the code of Georgia, adopted by the new constitu?
tion, forever prohibits the marriage relation be?
tween white persons and persons of African de.
scent, and declares such marriages to be null and
void. The opinion says that this sec tion of the
code is not repealed by, nor is it inconsistent with
ahat part of the constitution which declares that
the social status of the citizens shall never be the
subject of legislation. That clause of the consti?
tution absolutely denies to the Legislature the
power to pass laws iu future regulating the social
stains or compelling the two races to unite in social
intercow.-io. Ab the laws then in existence allow?
ed churches, far instance, to determino for them?
selves who should occupy their seats and wli are
they should sit, and permitted railioads and steam?
boat companies and hotel keepers to classify and
assign places to those using their accommodations
according to social values and grade as they might
think proper, the constitution puts it beyond (he
nower of the Legislature even to enact any liw
compelling them to make difficult classifications or
to group together in social intercourse those who
d?s not recognize each other as social equals. As
the social relations of citizens arc not the proper
subjects of legislation, the coosliluiioa has wisely
put the matter at net by denying to (he Legislature
the power to repear or enact laws on that subject.

MASONIC CELEBRATION.
Thursday, the 24th instant, being St. John's
Day, was celebrated at (his place by quite a num?
ber of Masons from the Lodges of this and the
surrounding counties, who had assembled to join
in the "esfivities of the occasion. Fortunately
the day was calm and clear, and but for the ex?
cessive heat of the weather, the ceremonies would
havs passed off pleasantly. At an early hour the
large number of spectators who were in atten?
dance began to assemble, and we were pleased to
observe quite a number of the fair sex present to
grace the occasion, with their charms.
The- Masons assembled in the Masonic Hall,
and about li o'clock were formed into procession
by Major W. W. HOMPfHETS, and headed by the
Brass *'3r.nd of Anderson, marched to> the Baptist
Church, where the speeches were to be del^rercd.
By the time the audience was seated, the' church
and galleries were filled to repletion. The ora?
tors of the occasion were tho Rev. S. A. Webber
and Warken D. Wilkes, Esq. It was our misfor?
tune to be so situated as not to hear distinctly
all of the address of the first named gentleman,
which we are satined was alike creditable to the
head and heart of its author. His delicate health
/rendered the task of making himself audible in a
room so large and densely crowded*, one of groat
difficulty, and before he was done, he betrayed
evident signs of exhaustion-. It is to be regretted
that one so young ami promising should, find such
a difficulty interposed; between him-and the sphere
i of usefulness-to> whfefi. he aspires.
He wts followed-by G?L Wilkes, whose speech
was short, well conceived and well delivered. It
was among the best of his- efforts.
After the speeohes were over, the Masons were
reformed into a procession at I he churoh, and
, marched-back to-the Masonic Hall, where an am?
ple dinner was in readiness for them.
Much credit is due to- the Andcrsoa Brass Band,
which volunteered its services for the occasion.
The day passed off pleasantly and quietly, and
reminded us of the social gatherings of our peo?
ple in dr.yf which have long since passed away.

THE ALB LINE RAILROAD.
The Greenville Enterprise of last week contains
an article, showing that the people of that town
are going forward in their efforts to secure the Air
Line Railroad. The subscription by the City
Council 'f $100,000 is an evidence that they are
in earnest, and our cotemporary is sanguine that
efforts to that end will not be limited to the action
of the authorities. The people are alive to the im?
portance cf at once pressing onward, and are
showing their faith by their works.
We ca'.ied the attention of the people of Ander?
son to tlrs great enterprise only a few weeks ago,
but then.- has not been a single response to that
editorial, and apparently there is great indifference
to tho project. We feel confident that this is
not really true, and that our people do wish to
see the Air Line Road located advantageously to
their interests. But they remain absolutely quiet
on the subject, while others are urging adverse
claims and backing their pretensions by liberal
subscriptions. ShaU we continue listless and in?
attentive, and allow the project to drift into other
hands ? We quote from the Enterprise :
On Monday, our City Council had a meeting to
consider ihe propriety of subscribing for stock in
the Air Line Railroad, on the condition of its pas?
sing through the place, and we rejoice to announce
that it was determined to sub-scribe the sum of one
hundred thousand dollars by the corporation. The
Council went the whole extern of the limits of the
charter, ;.ud we commend theni for their enlight
eued patriotic action, aud it must be highly grati?
fying to them to know that the citizens of the place
most heertly approve what has been done.
The eiforts of the people of Greenville will not
stop at the action of the Council; arrangements
are already adopted to procure individual subscrip?
tions of block on the same condition', which must
succeed in raising a very large additional amount,
not only in the limits of the City, but throughout
the County. Every citizen, be he land holder,
farmer, merchant, mechanic, or professional man,
can afford to make the most liberal subscription of
stuck, and gain in every way by so doing. In the
first place, the instalments will not be called for
till the location of the Road is made through
Grecnvilie and work. of construction commenced.
This will immediately raise the value of nil prop?
erty and stimulate every business, and the Koad
will thus remunerate the stockholders at once and
enable them easily to raise the mouey from time to
time as it may be wanted. Iu the second place, the
stock it ,e.'f will be valuable, no subscription can
be considered as a donation. The Air Line, when
finished, will connect North Carolina. Virginia,
Maryland, Washington City, Philadelphia, New
York and Boston, with Georgia, Alabama, Missis?
sippi, Louisiana with her great City of Orion", and
Texas. At will constitute the straightest and, of
course, the quickest and therefore the best route of
travel for the immeuse populations of the States
and cities we have mentioned, as well as for busi?
ness purposes. The stock will pay, and in all
probability will be nbove par. The benefits the
Road mu -i bring to Greenville and all this section,
have been so frequently insisted on that it is hard?
ly necessity to reiterate, and the common sense of
the people perceives also that a failure to secure
this Road will be disastrous to every interest of the
couutry, and place Greenville in a position of in?
feriority that would be permanent. It will not do
to think of losing the Air Line. We trust that the
enthusiasm of a number of our citizens may be
caught by every man, and that "with a long pull,
a strong pull and a pull altogether," the trains of
the Air Line may be brought smack up to our
' Queen City of the Mountains."
The people of Greenville in urging the location
of the Air Line Road through the City are much
encouraged by the fact that this place is just about
on the most direct, and at the same time best route,
and we think cheapest that could be selected. The
Company would be, it seems to us, a decided gain?
er by the location, on accouut of these considera?
tions and for the reason that it would build up a
flourishing city on its route, with all its additions
of business. Besides, the location through Green?
ville still keeps the route on a line with Spartan
burg, which would also be a place of decided im?
portance, aud which will doubtless do her part to
secure the success of the Road. It cannot bo expec?
ted, however that the Uoad will come to us unless
we show our faith by our works. Every man
should subscribe for stock according to his utmost
ability.
? The statistics of immigration at New York
are still astounding to all who examine them, in
comparison with the figures for previous years.
Up to June 16, there had been landed at Castle
Garden 124,088 foreigners during the present
year?more by thousands than ever before during
the same period, and nearly 30,000 more than du?
ring the same time last year. From the lGth to
the 22ud of Juno the arrivals numbered 8,074?
making the total arrivals for the three weeks in
June, 34,596. The number of Germans is the
greatest-?40,956. Ireland follows with 20,354,
the latter figures being for tho time up to the 16th
of June. There is something significant in the
movement of Swedes. In 1866 the whole number
of natives of Sweden who came to this oouniry
was but 109. For the twenty years between 1847
and 1867 the whole number from that oouutry
was 26,565. In 1867 the number was 1,605, and
iu 1868 it was 14,520, and during the time up to
(he 16th of Juno of the present year the Swedes
have already numbered 14,429. One thousand
more of the same nationality arrived during the en?
suing week. It is estimated, from carefully pre?
pared data at the statistical bureau of the Treas?
ury department at Washington, that during the
part thirteen years we have received and assimila?
ted tWQ W& a half million immigrants from other
For the Anderton Intelligencer.
Md. Editor: One again upon the "Rust"
subject. My object in my first comtrunicdfion
was to draw out some of the farmers ami investi?
gate that evil, so as to arrive at a remedy, and
some have been drawn out on the subject. I no?
tice a communication from "Hazlewood." lie has
given us some additional ideas which I like, par?
ticularly where he sets forth the cause of the de?
terioration of the wheat plant, and the manner in
which we should select our seed.
I also notice a communication from "M. H."
which I like, with one exception ; that if where he
refers to the article I wrote. He has not given
credit for what I actually wrote. He says I nei?
ther told what rust was, nor gave a remedy. If
lie will read my article again, I think he will see
that, after stating the causes nnd the manner in
which rust developes itself, I stated uhat rust
was?that is, I said what I thought it was, and
that is all he has been able to do. "M. IL" has
given us the botanical name of the thing, which is
derived from a foreign language. In pliin Eng?
lish, as that is the language our brother farmers
are best acquainted with, I said rust in wheat
was the copious liquids of the stalk, a super?
abundance of 3ap, which, when heated by the hot
sun,.expands, splits the stalk, runs out, is dried
by The atmosphere, and changes its cs-ler to a
brown spot. "M. H." says "it is a parasite," a
"lichen," called "cryptagamia," roafces it out a
living plant, having roots. Well, the- idea of a
living, growing plant existing within another liv?
ing, growing plant, at the same time, is a lUtte far?
ther into the vegetable kingdom than I have ever
been. So I will let it pass. And as a remedy for
the evil, I suggested early Bowing, high manuring
and a proper selection of seed, as he will see if h*
will again read. ' He has given an additional item
as a remedy which I am persuaded would be effec?
tual. Deep tillage would let the heavy spring
rains sink down into the subsoil, quite below the
roots of the plant, as it is known thai: the roots of
the wheat plant at that season of the year are to
be found near the surface of the so .1. The soil
being pulverized to a great depth, the water would
be sunk, the plant would not be surfend with
water, which would act as a check upon the pri?
mary cause of rust.
As a remedy for the disaster is the gist of the
whole matter, I again state I believe early sowing
and high manuring would be effectual against
rust; because, since writing you first, I have been
in conversation with some of the old fathers of
the land, and they invariably tell me that in the
days of their youth wheat was sown immediately
after fodder-pulling, between the cor a rows, and
at the gathering of the corn the wheat was several
inches high, and in those days rust was not
known. But they were driven from this practice
by the fly in wheat, which was very disastrous.
It now seems as if that evil had passed away and
is not known; therefore, it would probably be
safe to return to the practice of early sowing
again. We would have but one difficulty to con?
tend with?that is. late frost in the spring, and I
would rather risk the late frost in the spring than
the rust, as in all probability we would not have
the late frost more than once in five years, and we
have had the rust every year lately.
Well, we have four different items now t et forth,
making up a remedy :
1st. Proper selection of seed.
2nd. High manuring.
3rd. Deep cultivation.
4th. Early sowing.
Brother farmers, let us try the remedy if we in?
tend to raise wheat at all. We will lose nothing
by the experiment, because in the application of
the remedy as set forth, we will increase the quan?
tity and quality of the grain and will improve our
lands.
And, Mr. Editor, I hope in the next twelve
months that we, as farmers of this county, will be
able to communicate to you that we have tiucceed
ed iu checking the rust in wheat, and as % result
have plenty of good buiscuitfor the table.

THE BLUE RIDGE RAILROAD.
Tho "act. that Governor Scott is advertising for
contracts in connection with this road, says the
Charleston Courier, givss rise to a reasonable pre?
sumption that its completion may be looked for at
an early day. A gentleman of some experience
in such matters, writing to the Courier, suggests
that a great portion of the road can be built, and
that speedily, with convict labor. The many con?
victs that now fill our jails, work houses and pen?
itentiary can be made a source of revenue to the
State, as our neighbors on the Savannah. River
have done. General Ruger, while Military Gov?
ernor of Georgia, leased the penitentiary convicts
of that Stale to parties who obligated themselves
to pay ten dollars for each one per month, feeding
and clothing them. Tho convicts built the greater
portion of the Selma, Rome and Dalton Road from
Gross Plains to Rome, and are now building the
Dalton Branch. Some two hundred and f fty are
also at work on the Macon and Brunswick Road.
The contractors find them the best labor they can
get, and prefer them to free labor; while the con
viots prefer laboring in the open air to being shut
up in cells, by which means their condition is
ameliorated. Let Governor Scott follow General
Ruger's example, and hire out these convicts, and
not subject the impoverished tax-payers of our
Slate to the additional expense of feeding them.
If the thieves and robbers who infest our State
and rob and plunder for a living can be captnred
and convicted, and put to this work, it will not
only save the State many thousand dollars, but
altio make them useful members of a community
in which they have forfeited th?ir privileges. The
project is worthy of a trial.

Cube fob Small-tox.?As the season for small?
pox is approaching, we would call attention to the
following cure for that dreaded malady, which is
communicated to a German paper in New fork by
a correspondent in China. It is said to have been
discovered by a surgeon in the British tirmy on
duty in China. The mode of treatment is as fol?
lows :
When the prececding fever is at its height, and
just before the eruption appearp, the chest is rubb?
ed with croton oil and tartaric ointment. This
causes the whole of the eruption to appear on that
part of the body, to ilie relief of the rest. It also
secures a full and complete eruption, and thus pre?
vents the disease from attacking the internal or?
gans. Tins is said to be now the established mode
of treatment in the English army in China by gen?
eral orders, and is rogarded as a perfect cure.

THE LATE HENRY J. RAYMOND.
The leading newspapers of New York, and in?
deed of the whole country, unite in warm tributes
to the life and chnracter of the late Henry J. Ray.
Most), cditoT of the Times. A remarkable instance
of his working ability and great powers of endu?
rance is related as having occurred upon the death
of Daniei, Webster, a statesman for whom Mr.
Raymond had the greatest admiration. The intel?
ligence reached New York on Saturday, and on
Monday morning the Times contained an admira?
ble biography, covering twenty-sis columns, aud in
addition three columns of editorial on the same sub?
ject, all from the pen of Mr. Raymond, who wrote
sixteen columns of this extraordinary biography
without stopping a moment to rest. As a feat of
journalistic labor, it has probably never been
equalled. From the numerous of flattering trib?
utes of the metropolitan press, we select the con?
cluding portion of the glowing eulogy in the TriM
bvne, whose chief editor first encouraged the talent
of his now departed confrere:
While his hands were full of business and his
life- full of activities, the strange, swift OTdcrcame
to him to leave all this for larger occupation.
There was no time to say his farewells to old asso?
ciates, but they crowd to say a tender farewell to

epitome of his power is written thus. Pure sun?

Greenwood, where his eyes laat looked on it. The
golden mist will float above a new grave, where he

DSATt? 07 a MlSER?HoW He accumulated
Wealth?His Collection of Treasures.?There
died in Baxter-street, yesterday morning an old
man, 78 years of age, who, although he breathed
his last breath on a heap of dirty rags and sur?
rounded by misery and squalor, such as one can?
not find outside of the above dirty thoroughfare,
was worth a handsome fortune. Person? who have
been accustomed to perambulate the streets ontbe
East side of the city during the past few years are,
no doubt, familiar with the sight of this old man,
! and have, no doubt, often stopped and watched
his movements with pitying interest.
This odd character was a ragpicker, aud a'lmest
any morning during the past ten years, could be seen
busily engaged in overhauling the garbage boxes
and gutters along the Bowery and adjacent streets^
Dirty and dilapidated, his clothes patched and
pieced in most grotesque style one would suppose,
upon meeting him, that he was a man against
whom Dame fortuno had an eternal spite, and who
was persecuting him unrelentingly. Yet this old
man was worth a fortune. 'Twas curious how he
laid the foundation for his wealth. While raking
among the filth of a gutter in Prince-street one
morning about ten years ago, he found in the mud
a valuable diamond, which he sold to a pawnbroker
for several hundred dollars. This brilliant soli
tarie was the nucleus around which many subse?
quently clustered. Rumor had it that the old man
was not honest, that much of the wealth which he
had secured had been obtained by pilfering. But
this was only a rumor, and although it was known
that he possessed a valuable collection ef miscel?
laneous jewelery and other valuables, still no theft
was ever traced to him, and he was allowed to re?
tain undisputed possession of his wealth. Once
the police searched his old hovel for a stolen ring,
and during tho hunt they found under the floor,
buried in the ground, an old coffee-pot, containing
jewelry and gold of great value, but the missing
ring was not in the collection. The old man howl?
ed like a maniac when his treasures were unearth?
ed, and the story is that upon the departure of the
officers he disposed of his jewels to a Chatham
street pawnbroker, securing for them a handsome
sum which he invested in real estate.
