the sight being a grand one, as, in the darkness of
the night, the lava was seen pouring in an appa?
rent cataract au unbroken sheet of doop fiery-red
molten liquid, for a depth of some hundreds of
feet, when it could be seen running off lo thc
right, lound and down thc. mountain, in a cut in
the side of the mountain, from which fissures here
and thef? gave us an occasioual glimpse of it. We
continued to soe it tho three following nights,
since which it has disanpeared. On thc first night
it appeared larger than on tho two last seen. On
tho afternoon and night previous to its boing seen
we had much rain, accompanied by a continuous
heavy storm of wind from thc mountain, which
came in heavy gusts, with occasional light lolls of
a few minutes between, and such a furious and
long-continued storm was unknown hero before."

LETTEl: FROM G. W. W.
NEW YORK, July 25.-Messrs. Ediion :-I am in
this great city seeing what I can soe. Tho feeling
hero toward tho peoplo'oi tho South is that of
kindness and sympathy. They aro moro than
anxious to seo tho old StatcB back again into the
Union. They know their commercial and political
value to tho wholo country, and they aro feeling
keenly in their finances and trado tho effects of thc
disorganization and anarchy which prevails at thc
South. As soon as wc aro reconstructed, piillions
of mon and money will pour into our impoverished
land, and aid in building up our wa8t9 cities, and
iu cultivating thc fields that aro now growing up
in thorns and thistles. Now York comparatively
is almost as duli as Charleston. Those who aro so
fortunato as to have a fow hundred pounds of ster?
ling have gone to tho Paris show; others have de?
serted their comfortable homes, and are ' 'cotting"
on tho 8oa sido, Saratoga or Niagara, leaving the
town in tho possession ot the sharpors of both sexo?.
1 have novcr seen so few people hore from tho
South. Alas ! Confederate currency don't pay
railroad fare and hotel bills. Tho wheels of com?
merce soem8 to havo como to a dead lock in this
groat metropolis. This state of thingB cannot
last much longer without ruining two-thirds of the
merchants. There have already been several fail?
ures among tho dry goods houses in the jobbing
and importing trade, and tho ond is not yet. The
peoplo will have to look a little more closely into
tho laws of political economy, and they will learn
that fortunes aro not mado in a day, but by years
of toil, labor and economy. The vast volumo of
paper currency-the result of tho late war, filled
the land with wild and reckless speculators. Tho
doairo and facilities for making monoy rapidly
found ita way among all classes and professions;
fortunes woro made in a few months, and aro be?
ing lost in as many days.
Tho peoplo are realizing that '-riches have
wings" even in New York, and "he that has to th to
bo rich, shall not bo innocent." Tho tendency
hero is for tho largo houses to monopolizo trade,
and thereby crash the smaller. How much better
it would bo tor tho city to have ono hundred
hoasss sell in tho aggregate a hundred millions of
dollars, than to have that amount of business ab?
sorbed by STEWART andjCLAFLiN. STEWART bean
boro with less than a hundrod dollars capital, and
in forty years has become the richest man in
America, if not in the world. It ia said his heart
is as cold as the marble palaces in which he has
amassed his colossal fortuno. Tis said no mer?
chant in New York has boen so hard on his unfor?
tunate Southern creditors as A. T. STEWART. Now
York is one of the most expensive cities in tho
world. There are a Diimb?r of houses here th at
pay $50,000 per annum rent, and aa much more
for clerk biro, personal expenses, etc.
You can readily perceive what a large amount of
business must bo dono to pay expenses. Rents
aro enormously high, and yet there, are more
houses '-to let" than has been known for years.
The un gato banking capital of New York city
is eighty-five millions of dollars, with liabilities
amounting to three hundred and fifty millions !
A large amount of this money ia doe to individual
depositeT, and country banks and bankers.
These deposits aro loaned by the. banks on "call."
If there should be a commercial panic, it would
be like calling tho spirits from the vasty deep.
The banks have less than ten millions gold, but
not one dollar in ten of this sum belongs to them.
So long as Government bonds are good, tho
$33,000,000 circulation will be redeemed. I tell
the financiers hore that if they don't want Sambo
to voto for repudiation, they must take off the tax
of 2h cents per pound on cotton and 40 cents on
tobacco. Would the fai mere of the Empire State
of New York stand such a tax on their wheat,
corn, h av, etc. ?
I think not. Why then impose this tax on the
labor of the poor colored and white peoplo of the
If there over was a time when they required
light taxation, now ia the time, when they aro
straggling for mere existence.
The dtmmerce of this city is immense, and tho
vast accumulation and concentration of capital
here must ever make New York tho great commer?
cial cou tre of America. The excessive imports at
this city in 1866-66 resulted in heavy losses, not
only to tho importers, but also to thoso who had
large stocks on hand. The declino on many de?
scription of goods was fifty per oent. Tho imports
into New York from July 1865-66 was ono hundred
and eighty millions of dollars ($180,000,000) against
one hundred and forty million ($140,000,000) tho
present year. Tho above figures represent gold
valuations. When reduced to paper currency, with
tho duties paid, of com so the amount is largely in?
creased. The exports of domestic produce tho
present fiscal year from New York was about one
hundred and seventy-four million, currency value,
and forty millions gold and bullion.
Tho merchants and bankers horo aro
looking with great interest to the industrial
developments of the South. Want of capital is a
great drawback to rapid progiesa, but what wo
lack in capital should bo made up in industry and
capital will flow into tho South as soon as recon?
struction and confidence aro restored, but never
while we remain in tho present distracted condi?
tion. Then let our people push on reconstruction.
Delay is fatal to our best interests. G. W. AV.
[FOB TUE DAILY HEWS. |
Afr. Editor.--I think you aro entitled to the
gratitudo of every friend of bis country for tho
manly, consistent; and straightforward manner in
which you havo treated tho vexed question of re?
construction. That patriotism ls cheap which
finds its reward in tho ephemeral plaudits of tho
unthinking multitude. Rut the man who, in the
hour of peril, boldly steps forward, submitting to
the scoffs, the jeers, tho derision of demagogues
and their abettors, an i in the faco of public
opposition and private inicrcat, proclaims his
views on questions that agitate the'public mind
and vitally affect tho public welfare, of tho sincer?
ity of which the clamor they excito ia a sufficient
guarantee, such a one indeed deserves well of the
Republic, and particularly in those times, whon so
few are found with tho moral courage to breast thc
surges of popular passion. These are times that
try men's minds, when the timid and time-serving
skulk into corners out of public view, awaiting the
turn of the tide, which they hope will bear them
on to fortune ; and tho despairing make ono last
desperate dtfort to regain their lost supremacy.
But in such a crisis only men who can accommo?
date themselves to the altered condition of
things, who five in the present, whoso minda and
affections arc not irrevocably weddod to old
prejudices and past associations-only such aro
proper to be trusted with the leadership.
Let those who would perpetuato tho servi?
tude of tho white man lather than re?
linquish tho domination of tho black man,
at least not endeavor by their example, thoir influ?
ence and thoir teachings to sway tho minds of
their fellow-citizens who aro more practically dis?
posed. They cannot meet the public expectations,
they cannot know the public wants, tho require?
ments of tho times; the lesson taught by tho bitter
experience of tho last six yeara they have yet to
learn; they do not underatand that now isBuea
have ariacn, iaaue8, too, on which wo cannot
afford to be divided when every man is expected to
dc his duty. Thoy take their stand on the old
battle-ground and engage every foo, imaginar}' or
real, who crosses their path, and being deprived
of the light of past experience, which they ignore
thoy are totally incapable of reading our future.
In time8 of doubt and anxiety like the present,
tho peoplo look to the public press for guidance
and advico, and if, while all tho rest pander to tho
popular passions and foster tho popular preju?
dices, there bo found one with tho honesty, the
integrity, the disinterested patriotism, to place
beforo the peoplo their true interests in their
proper light, ono who haa tho moral courage to
show the people whero thoy err, and endeavor to
Bet them right, unawed by power and unappallcd
by fear, such a journal doaerves and has a right
to expect the support of evory honest man.
A WRITER D? THE Memphis Bulletin thus speaks
of tho aermon of our anciont friend, Dr. T. O. SUM?
MERS, at the Commencement of tho University of
Mississippi, at Oxford: "The Commencement ser?
mon waa preached by the ROY. Dr. SUMMERS, of
Nashville, one of tho most accomplished pulpit
oratora of tho South, and among the most eminent
of her acholare. The subject was, 'Thc dignity
and ucccsaiiy of labor,' and waa taken from a
verse in tho Epistle of ST. PAUL to TITUS. It
was very ably and elaborately discussed, and
Theology, Philosophy and Poetry exhausted in its
exnositional illustration. Tho field of Theology
was swept from ST. PAUL to BEACHER-of Philoso?
phy, from SOCRATES to HAMILTON-of Poetry, from
HOMER to LONGFELLOW, and tho gems of earth
and all scattered in munificent profusion, and with
dazzling effect. Tho display of erudition was ap?
palling to tho most of us, and we coidd but wish
for tho presence of Edna Earl and her husband St.
Elmo Murray, to enjoy tho rich feast with us, and
to talk with them about it afterwards. But, ns it
waa, wo were all profoundly impressed with the
speaker and thc subject."

LAOTIENS C. H., July 25th, 18C7.
ii Mr. Edilor : I have a few words now to say
concerning railroads and their influonco on and
connections with the sections of our Stato through
which thoy extend. I dosiro to interest tho Board
of Trade in this matter, so that thoy may take ac?
tive and practical measures, not by passing un?
meaning and useless resolutions, but by moving
with all their influence at ouco upon points which
may be roached by them. Tho trade of Charles?
ton is sapped at moro places than one, and
in somo almost incredible ways, and if the
process goes on much longer the trade of tho city
will be limited in this Stato to a few middle Dis?
tricts, with tho lower and portions of the south?
west Districts. Tho policy of tho Wilmington
and Manchester Company is to turn cotton,
and consequently trade toward Wilmington. The
tari? of freight loads to this of necossity. For
instance, it costs about as much to send a halo of
cotton from Sumter to Florence as it docs from
Sumter to Wilmington. So too the charge from
all way stations to Floreuce is quito enormous in
proportion to the ratos to Wilmington, consequent?
ly cotton w^uld all go to Wilmington were it not
that the Northeastern Railroad Company reduced
their rates from Florenco so that the delivery in
Charleston may bo nearly as choap as to Wilming?
ton. Tho consequence of ali this is that a great
deal of the trade of Marlboro', Chesterfield, Mar?
ion, Darlington and Sumter Districts, is turned
from tho city because it finds choapor transporta?
Pass on to the lino of the Charlotte and Colum?
bia Railroad, and we find a similar, if not a worse,
state of things. Every inducement is offered in
tho way o? cheap transportation, to carry trade
through Charlotta to Baltimore and other Northern
cities, via Norfolk, and now a very large part of
tho business of Lancaster, Chester, Fairfield and
York Districts is turned from its natural channels.
No ono can imagino the oxtont of this diversion
without going o'er tho ground carefully. Winus
boro', which ought to be in close business rela?
tions to Charleston, seeks her supplies and makes
her shipments largoly through Norfolk, via Char?
lotte Let mo give you one specimen of the
freight tariffs by which this condition of things
has been brought about. Tl ie Columbia and Char
lotto Company chargo for freight on a bushel of
corn from Columbia to Winnsboro' ton cents-a
distanco of thirty-seven milos. The freight from
Charlotte to Winnsboro'. seventy-four miles, ?B
also ton cents. One of tho loading merchants of
Winnsboro' told mo that ho had not been to
Charleston sinco the war closed, and that all his
trade was now with Baltimore, because he could
lay his goods down cheaper than from Charleston.
Passing now round to Laurens wc find, from
Newberry, a wretched affair of a railroad of 82
miles in length, the average speed upon it being
six miles an hour; and when we reach this placo
which ought to command a largo trade, wo aro
confounded on being told that the great bulk of
the planters are hauling their cotton to Augusta, a
distance of 76 miles, and that oven from 30 miles
above and on towards the Spartonburg and Union
Railroad the samo thing is done; and thus a great
deal of the cotton and trade of Laurens, Spartan?
burg, Abbeville, Anderson, Edgefield and Barn?
well Districts is lost to Charleston. And tho peo?
ple here say there can be no help for t his strange
course of trade unless tho South Carolina, Green?
ville and Laurens Railroad Companies will tako tho
thins; in hand and apply the corrections. Our rail?
road companies seem to think that trade must go
over thom at any price they choose to charge, but
this is a mistaken theory, and hundreds of thou?
sands of dollars are annually lost to them and to
Charleston by peraijting in it.
The Board of Trade had botter appoint men to
take this ma.ter up, investigate it and make a full
report. A. B. C.
Arrest for Distilling'.
Captain Frauk Arnim was recentlv arrested in
Hamburg, 8. C., and brought before Jamos Birnio,
Esq., United States Commissioner at this place,
on a charge of violation of tho Internal Revonue
Laws in distilling spirituous liquors without a
license at a vinegar distillery near Hamburg.
After a preliminary examination before the Com?
missioner, an order was issued requiring tho de?
fendant (Arnim) to give bond, with good sureties,
for his appearance at the next term of the United
States District Court, to bo held in Greenville. He
was unable to do so, and was committed to jail to
await his trial. Messrs. Cramp and Davison, of
the houso of Crump, Davison & Co., of Augusta,
Ga., wore also arrested on the samo warrant, and
carried beforo the Commissioner at Augusta, when
thoy gave bond for their appearance at tho same
term of thc Court.-Greenville Mountaineer.

A correspondent of tho Louisville Journal writes
from New Orloans, ofter making a trip down tho
Mississippi, as follows:
In coming down tho river I made it my special
business to obtain information in reforence to tho
crops and tho freedmen, as well as tho situation
gouerallv, and tho result is more favorable than I
had anticipated. The corn crop was everywhere
represented as virtually secured, and lo bo mag?
nificent. There is a single field o* this valuable
cereal in Bolivar county, Mississippi if G00O acres.
Cotton was looking weil, but in som ocalitios the
grass was growing, and the rains Bin must have
mado it worse. The cotton crop dopent of course,
upon tho part of tho soason yet future It is ad?
mitted on all hands that, should tho wu -cr prove
favorable, half a crop, as compared wi that of
18G0, will bo made, which at present or p is like?
ly to rule, wul bring as much as a whole v p did
beforo tho war. Thc hopes of the Southern "opie
aro suspended, so to speak, upon a fair cu' ton
crop. As tho prospect for this grows bright or
gloomy, so will tho hearts of the tillers of the soil
swoll with exultation or sink into something akin
to despair. On some plantations that foo to thc
crop, the worm hus appeared and his ravages aro
dreaded. Tho worm flourishes tho most vigor?
ously iu cold wot seasons.
As wo took in and landed passengers at nearly
eveivstopping placo, 1 had good opportunities to
couverse with different classis of persons from the
interior, and almost without exception found them
cheerful and hopeful -moro so than I expected.
Little interest iu politics seemed to bo taken. Tho
subject, in fact, was rarely introduced, unless I
did it myself. To tho question, how do the freed?
men work ? tho answer generally was that they
were doing well-much better than last year. Ou
thc plantations of the Messrs. Hampton-Wade
and Christopher-in Mississippi, tho frccdmon
have half the crop, tho employers furnishing the
supplies at a slight advance upon tho original
cost. This appears to be the rule generally

To the Editor of the Dn?y News :
WOLTESVILLE, UNION Co?NTY, N. C., July 25.
Farmors in thia county lastj-oar failed toraiso
sufficient breadstuff's, and the past ecason baa
been ono of siiffenng among the poor whites as
well as blaoks; but tho present prospect for
corn the ensuoing fa! is more gloomy than at tho
samo season of hst year. The spring floods were
continued nearly thrco weeks later, leaving low
lands unplanted or drowned out, and every kind
of crop in tho grose. Sinco tho floods abated the
weather lias boen intensely bot and dry, the earth
is dry and bard, and vegetation is dying in tho
field. Cotton is looking better than corn, but
most of that was injured by tho rains and tho
grass. Tho wheat crop was moderately good; but
without a material and speedy change in the as?
pect of affairs for tho bettor, this section of coun?
try is doomed to a greater destitution and suffer?
ing than we have yet experienced.
The gold mines being worked in this county
givo employment to considerable numbers who
could not otherwise survivo tho pressure of
famine, but the high price of provisions,
and the difficulties of transportation, render
them less profitable than formerly, especi?
ally as operatives cannot be secured without a cor?
responding rise in wages. Gold is not bread, how?
ever, and comparatively few are in a condition to
break np from homo and dig in the earth.
I am in a position to know that our people were
all in favor of reconstruction upon thc basis of tho
Military Bill ; but sinoo tho lrst meeting of Con?
gress they aro at a stand-still, and we now bear tho
Suestion ropeatcd with increasing emphasis every
ay, "Is there any use in doing anything ?" Surely
the men who express so much sympathy for tho
Irishman, and are so horrified with Moxican cruel?
ty, have forgotton that tuero aro human beings at
tho South, excepting 01 ly Africans. Aro they not
mad ? But who and whero is thc physician to ad?
minister for thc removal of their malady ? W.
Union Rcpnblican Convention.
THIRD AND LAST DAY.
(From fae Fhccnix)
Tho Convention assemblod about half-past 10
o'clock. After prayer by Kev. David Pickett, the
journal was road and confirmed.
A communication was received from Mr. L.
Boozer, of Lexington, regretting that tho state of
his healih prevented his attendance at the Conven?
tion. He rudy endorsod the movoment, and re?
gretted tho disruption of thc Union and tho lato
bloody war consoquent. Tho lotter was filed
among tho archives of tho Convention.
President Gloavca announced tbat tho Conven?
tion had proceeded thus far harmon-' >usly and
pleasantly. All members had an opportunity of
expressing themselves freely. They had Deon
sent here, ho said, to establish a platform co?
operating with the great Republican party of tho
country. As tho ...orncr-etone of tho great struc?
ture which they had laid was dono, alter invoking
Divine assistance, he believed it bad been pat
down so firmly that it novor could bo takon up.
The platform adoptod was democratic, not aristo?
cratic ; it was for tho benefit of tho poor man as
well as the rich man. Stand up for tho platform.
Tako up a man, not for his color, but for his
ability. If a man is found incompetent, when his
one-year term is out, upset him ; don't lot tho
worm of corruption inj uro him, Organizo leaguos;
induce every ono to attend. So act that, when
oar State is again brought forward for admission
to tho Uuion of States, she will be received with
open arms. As education was tho great necessity,
ho advised that one and all use their utmost en?
deavors to improvo themselves, and moro particu?
larly the rising generation ; send tho children to
school. In the further proceedings, act as men,
and act as Republicans.
During a debate. Mr. Bowen reflected on tho
position ocenpied by Unitod states Marshal Ep
Sing; to which Mr. E. roplied that he was not
?ero in any other character than simply Mr. Ep?
ping. Mr. B. said, in responso, that no would
only quote from a Georgia senator : "That if you
shot into a pack of dogs, you can tell which one
has been bit by the noise he makes."
The Committee on Nominations, through their
Chairman, reported tho following
President-B. F. Whitteiirore, Darlington.

Thc report and recommendation of tho Commit
too wore adopted.
Mr. Leslie, who mado uso of expressions yes?
terday that were construed into an insult to*tho
Convontion, after permission grantod by tho Ch air,
apologized.mnd was readmitted. He was thou al?
lowed to moko a fow remarks, in which bc assert?
ed that he had "been persecuted and howled at by
all tho "robols;" attempts bad been mado to mul?
der him-mon, with five revolvers buckled around
them, being on his track : his fences wcro burned,
and ho was finally forced to tako refuge in thc
swamp, and bis plantation-a most valuable one,
well stockod-was noarly ruined. Ho was a friond of
tho colored man. .* H for his complicity with thu
corn question with which be had boon charged, ho
wouldstato that, after bo found that the officer in
chai go of tho com which was to ba distributed to
tho poor of tho District, was confining his contri?
butions to tho whitos alone, he proceeded to
Charleston and obtained another supply, which, to
balance thc account, he distributed to tho blacks.
Ho was satisfied tho members ot tho Convention
from his District would certify lu his statements.
Tho Chairman hero again requested the Finance
Committee to make a call on all persons present
delegates as woll as visitors-to. contribute their
mites towards "greasing tho machinory;" when
tho Committco at onco prococded with, tuojmattor.
After which the Convention adjourned, to meet
this afternoon, at 4 o'clock.
Tho Convention reassembled at 4 o'clock, and
business was proceed with.
Tho following communication was read:
To the President of the Union Republican Parly
of South Carolina :
Sm: I am suro there is no ono more sincerely
attached to tho principles of that great National
Union Republican party which has Bavcd the na?
tion from dismemberment and now presides over
its dostinios than I am. Its great idea of entire
equality for all in tho eyes of thc law. regardless
of race or color, I most heartily endono. But
there has boon a spirit of violent radicalism mani?
fested in tho Convention of South Carolina that I
regard far from tho principles of tho party wc
aro expected tn act with, aud whose
principle.! wo ought simply to have adopted,
lhere aro several articles in tho platform
which I consider simply impolitic, and
moro likely to iujuro tho party than to
benefit. 1 believe thc policy of thc Convention
should have been ono of moderation and concilia?
tion, instead of ono of violence to open old wounds.
Jut if Article No 4, onco defeated and then brought
up again at a moro favorablo time, moans any?
thing, il means what no lover of law, order and
justico to all men can possibly sanction. As it
would be impossible for mo to pledge myself to
support any man as a candidato who endorsed tho
princip' ,s of spoliation indicated in that articlo, 1
feel that I cannot, consistently with Article No. 13
of tho platform, remain a member of tho Conven?
tion. I thercforo very respectfully roquest that
my name be struck out. Most respectfully, your
B. 0. DUNCAN, of Newberry.
Columbia, Friday, July 26, 1807.
Thc letter of resignation was accepted, when
the President stated in reply that ho was glad tho
Convontion had such a platform, that no Judas
Mr. J. J. Wright offered the following prcample
and resolution, which wcro luianimously adopted:
Whereas it is alleged by thc opponents of repub?
lican liberty and congressional reconstruction that
the Union Republican party of South Carolina is
organized by and in tho exclusive interests of one
Resolocd, That we, in Convention assembled,
hereby declare such sentiment entirely without
foundation; that, on tho other hand, all citizens of
South Carolina loyal to tho nation and tho princi?
ples of tho national Republican party, arc cordial?
ly invited to co-opcrato with us in placing South
Carolina in a proud position among thc States of
W. J. Whipper introduced a resolution, which
was adopted, that the thanks of thc Convention
be tendered to thc Columbia Pheonix, for thc faith?
ful reports of the proceedings published every
Resolutions were offered and unanimously adopt?
ed, returning tho thanks ot tho Convention to the
Sergcant-at-Arms and Secretario ?, for their ser?
vices gratuitously rendered.
The oommittoc on Finance reported that the ex?
penses of thc Convention amounted te only $36.25
-$35 for rent of hall and $1.25 for stationery; that
tho collections amounted to $10".

MAMMOTH SQUASH.-A few days since wo were
shown by .Mr. John M. Rawlinson, of this ! place, B
Mammoth Squash grown in his garden, which is
rather ahead ot'anything wo have ever seen. Its
weight is thirty-three pounds, and it measures a
fraction over lour lect in circumference, and is
about sixteen indies in diameter. We do not know
tho name of this monster variety, but learn that
the seed from which it was produced, were pr?
cured from tho Agricultural Bureau at Washing?
ton, - Yorkoi&B Enquirer,
MILL BURNT.-We regret to learn that the flour
mill of Mr. Jas. R. Massey, situate on tho Catawba
River, was destroyed by ure on tho morning of tho
18th instant. It is believed to have been tho work
of an incendiary. A considerable quantity of grain
was also consumed. Estimated loss between five
and six thousand dollars.
Wo understand that it is the intention of the
proprietor to rebuild it as soon as circumstances
will permit.-Lancaster Ledger.
COTTON BOLLS.-Our much esteemed friend,
Col. B. S. Jones, near Clinton, forwarded to us,
ksomc ton dava ago, a couple of tb o largest cotton
bolls wo havo scon this season. To give an idea
of their size, v o will say that they were nearly as
large as a guinea egg, and wore almost at tho
point of opening.
Wo learn, with ploasuro, that tho Colonel has a
largo and most promising growing crop of cotton,
and intends to provo the fact that good cotton and
largo yields can still bo raised ha Laurens District,
free labor and poor land to the contrary notwith?
standing; and that it is not necessary to desert, in
too great haste, our old red hills for those of more
fertile, yot, perhaps, far less healthy regions of
tho Yfeat.-LaurensviUe Herald.
THE Cnops.-WO have convereed with several
intelligent farmers fruin this district, and from all
quarters we have tho samo cheering accounts:
that tho corn and cotton are doing well. The
prospect of an abundant harvest makes our sturdy
humors cheerful and happy. After a year of des?
titution and want, nothing can add more to the re?
lief of our whole community than a plentiful pre?
nsi?n crop.-Orangeburg Jyews.
GOLD Dioomo.-WO learn that considerable ex?
citement with rogard to cold digging exists in the
neighborhood of tho "Little Mountain," about six
or seven miles below tho village, and the fever
seems to bo extending fast through this commu?
nity. Some very rich specimens or gold oro have
been obtained from landa owned by Mrs. Wil?
son, of Greenwood, and very thorough explorations
arc now being mado into their mineral resources,
under tho supcrviaion of Mr. Cloud, an experienced
and competent metallurgist. Tho indications, we
learn, are encouraging, and, wo truat, will roward
tho explorist8 with abundant success. Nothing
could bo more opportnno than tho discovery of a
rich gold mino in our District at this time, and it
would give a new impetus to thc development of
our resources, agricultural, mineral and manufac?
Tho Bennetts ville Herald says that thc Bacon

have been receiving Corn, on Monday, tho 29th.
Tho Commissioners state that par des must apply in
person, or they cannot obtain a supply.
Mr. Hiram Feaster, a skillful farmer in the Mt.
Tabor neighborhood, sent to us some ten dava
siuce two very flue stalks of cotton, over waist high,
and well lilied with squares, blooms and bolls.
