Sooner or Later.
fooner or later the storms shall beat
Over my slumbers from head to feet;
Sooner or later the'winds sh ?J i rave

I shall not heed them where I lie,

Sooner or la'er the sun shall shine
With tender w armth on that mound of mme;

The sheeted light fall over mi breast,
Nor ever noto m those hidden hours

Sooner or later tho stainless snows
Shall add their hush to my mute roj'.se;

And heap my bed with dizzluig drift.

That reeks not the sweet aud sabred dread

Sooner or later the bee shall come
And fill the noon with its golden hum ;

AFFAIRS IN THE STATE.
Tbs News says: Monday last being the re?
gular sheriff's sale-day, Sumter was crowd?
ed with people. The freedmen turned out en
masse, each mon wanted a mule or a horse,
wherewith to raise a crop of cotton in the com?
ing season. Many and bright are the hopes of
these poor people of prosperity to come-alas,
we much fear that these hopes and anticipa?
tions are doomed to disappointment. Many a
mule and horse will die for want of ' proper
food and attention in the hot months-and
many a small crcp of cotton will grow to grass
and be lost from the laziness and slothfulness
of the colored people.
Mr. A. J. Norris, a respected citizen, has been
appointed a magistrate by Governor Scott. ?**
Mr. John Glover, a respected citizen of the
Beech Island section of Edgefield, was found
dead in the public road about two miles from
his residence, on Thursday last. He had left
his house on the day before. It is supposed
he died in a sort of fit, as no marks of violence
whatever were found upon his person. The
deceased was about forty-seven years of age.
Andrew Ramsey, clerk of the court in t dire
field, has been served with a notice that the
South Carolina Railroad Company will make
application to Bet aside tho verdict of the jury
given on Saturday in the great railroad case.
Mr. F. R. Durisoe is now the sole proprietor
of the Edgefield Advertiser-having purchased
thc interest of Mr. Elijah Keese. Mr. J. T.
Bacon retains editorial control.

with the paper as as son to editor.
About the first of December last, a man by
the name of Experience Moe, hailing from New
Jersey, arrived in Walhalla, and set about pur?
chasing land, offering in pay therefor bonds of
a company entitled the Brooklyn Steamship
and Emigration Company, and suejeedeu in
making several tinr?sa with unsuspecting citi?

the value of said bonds, iaquiry was made at

ascertained that no sue- bondswp known in

pany, will, by special invitation, address the

at Yorkville, on Wednesday, the lath instant.
Of sale^lay in York*iite the Enquirer says:
ComptroHer-Goheral Neagle having tempora?
rily prohibited the sheriff from selling prop?
erty adverfased for taxes, the latter offioer bad
bat little to do, and only disposed of two
small parcels of land under execution. A
tract belonging to the estate of Philip Wil?
liams, deceased, containing nine hun?
dred and forty-seven acres, was sold for
$110, and a tract of twenty acres, belonging to
J. B. PaDkey, was bid off at fifty dollars. The
sheriff sold, for the Judge of Probate, a house
and lot or Main-street, known as the "Davis
McLure" lot, belonging te the estate ot George
Steele, deceased, at twelve hundred and fifty
dollars, on a credit of twelve months. We
conversed with a number of persons from
various sections of the county, and were much
pleased to find that the majority of our people
are hopeful of the future, and that the "good

A meeting of the Democratic Clubs of Abbe?
ville District was held on Monday last, for the
purpose of concerting measures which would
best secure the peace and goad order of tho
community, and express the public disappro?
bation of all acts ot lan if ss violence. William
BL. Parker Esq., ptcsident of the district club,
assumed the chair, and W. A. Lee Esq., was
requested to act as secretary. Resolutions
were introduced by General McGowan, and
after being advocated by himself, Colonel Fair
and others, were unanimously adopted. They
deplore and denounce in tho strongest terms,
all excesses a nd breaches of the peace, whether
exhibited in incendiary harangues, midnight
burnings, or open violence, expresa an honest
aud unreserved acquiescence in the present
political situation, and conclude as follows:
"The recent heated political excitement being
now over, and tho bureau and the garrison
having been withdrawn from Abbeville, gradu?
ally produoing quiet and restoring the com?
posure of the community, we invoke all good
citizens to use even more than ordinary efforts
to mai tain peaoe and secure order, and thus
repel in the most effectual manner, by their
conduct, the false charg?e brought against;tho
whole community of violence and lawlessness."

How our Crops Affect tbe Money-Bags of
New York-The Sudden Hage for
Southern Investments-True Policy of
tbe Newspapers.of the south.
A New York letter (January 2) to the Au?
gusta Chronicle, evidently written by ?orno ono
who i knows whereof ho writes, gives us thc
following gratifying intelligence :
The 8oath is at present playing the wild in
Wall-slreet. In tho first place, the heavy drain
of gold an i greenbacks called for by the crops
bas, in conjunction with the sLock gambling
operations that have been so nie of hte, made
money very tight-so much so, indeed, that
what is called "drug" paper, or you may, peri
baps, better understand it as "gilt-edge,"" nas,
on several occasions, gone begging. The
banks, being heavily drawn on, have been un?
der a pressure to meet their statements in
good form, and so, with the banks tight and
the best paper very heavy, you can judge
at least one branch of the"monetary excite?
ment the South has, of late, created-the
South being saidto have caused this Ftringen
cy, inasmuch as the stock-gambling opera?
tions, whi?h have heretofore made money
tight, have, on this occasion, beou of very
secondary importance indee J. Tho next ele?
ment of ?utere t presented by the South is in
the saturo of investment, the'adm'i abie oppor?
tunities there presented becoming now pretty
generally known, and receiving wide attention.
Something very like a furore prevails upon the
subject, and one account puts the amount, dai?
ly going Southward for investment', chiefly in
land, at $3 000,000. A more moderate estimate
puis tho sum at $1,000,000 per week, but the
probabilities ard that the cue is as much too
low as tho other is too high, and that tho
weekly outgo is about $1,250,000. Beal estate
is the object chiefly sought; but raUroads are
also receiving attention, and some are even
disposod to take tho risk of putting their
money in reconstructed bonds. It is 6tated,
and I think with considerable justice, tbat
those going or sending South to invest, are
very much mere anxious to buy than they aro
willing to have appear, and that it is quito
likely they will try to purchase at 1866 prices,
when, on the average, those rates are not
above one-fourth ot what they are willing,
rather than forego investment, to pay. This
statement coming to the writer oa very good
authority, is respectfully communicated to
whom it'may concern, with thc accompany'ng
moral, "Don't sell too low." Sprague's reported
tribute to tho superior management of the
Augusta factory, which ho is said ttl have
stated to be tho best of its kind in t!ii?
country, is coing: the rounds of tho Northern
presp and eliciting such a strain of comment
as niuke3 one smilo to sec how exceedingly ig?
norant these folks are of tbo real South. To
the averago Northern mind, tho mest favored
region of this continent is tm alternation of
cotton held, swamp and wild wood laud, ten?
anted alone by the poor, down-trodden nigger
and a fierce abd treacherous race ot white men,
who swear by knife and pistol, and bato "thc
great heart of thc nation" and its gizzard, and
its lungs, and its liver and lites, and aft other
such intestines whatsoever .vith a hate that
is altogether disloil and "rcoei" beyond hope.
That in this land there are noble and beautif ul
cities, a sweet and tender climate, deep har?
bors, and fine rivers, aud sublime mountains,
and healthful air; that herc is a civilization
quite as old as their own, and greatly more
pure; that, in one word, God has blessed this
heritage, and that there's life in the old land
yet, are things that seldom cuter the ordinary
brainpan of the trooly loiL Once in a while",
though, a dim presentiment that all is not
quite as Peter Parley and fcneak Sumner and
their bkiod-euilfy parsous tell them, seems to
interpenetrate them, and some such shaft of
truth appears tobe opetating now. All of a
sudden they have waked up to the facts-first,
that the South is not altogether given over to
fever and atuo. and yellow jack; and, second,
that the Southerner is apt to be, atter ah, a very
pleasant kind of man, and, acting iu this sud?
den influx ot ligbt, are now greatly exercised
on the subject of investment in this new found
land. To encourage this conversion it would
be well for the Southern press to taper off |
somewhat in politics for a while, and give plen?
ty of information, the more specific tho better,
as to the wonderful resources of their section.
Negro suffrago and reconstruction are things
that may be called factitious imposthumcs in
healthy skin. Neither of them can last; ono
good puff of wind would blow the whole fab?
ric of reconstruction, with every chinch that
crawls within it, to the devil, whence the whole
thing sprang; while as to negro suffrage, it is
but the sport of an idle hour, and will be
laughed out of court before heads that are
now gray can turn from silver into Bnow. In
du8trtnrwritinsr is the thing needed now-full
of facts, figures, thoughts, suggestion, and
pregnant hint. Politics, of course, as matter
of news, must have atteution, bnt for the im?
mediate present it would help things wonder?
fully, by way of informing and attracting capi?
talists, to give industrial themes the larger
scope. VERB. SAP.

PHYSICIANS wonder at the extraordinary power ot
BADWAY'S BENOVATTNG HES OL VENT in curing
the worst tomas of Scrofulous, Syphiloid, Ch ronlo
Skin Diseases, and ita marvelous power in resolving
calculons concretione, affording i mmediate relief ana
consequent cure of Diseases of the Kidney, Bladder,
Liver, Lungs, Pancreas, Spleen, Its rapid influence
in the cure of Diabetes, Incontinence or scanty, to
bid, albuminous, cloudy urine; its almost instant Jf.
flcacy In stepping itching and painful discharge of
urine, and ils singular power in curing discharges
from tho Uterus and Urethra, LVmcorrhoea, Bloody
Urine, and other unhealthy and weakening dis?
charges;-and inquire wherein the S ABS AP AE EL?
LI AN used in the Renovating Resolvent differs from
ordinary Sarsaparillas I S OTE, parti lian fa the only
principle in Sarsaparilla 'that possesses curative
properties; all other parts of the root are inert and
useless. One ounce of the extract obtained under
Dr. Bad way 'a new process for extracting the curativo
properties from vegetable suba tances,, contains mare
of the true principie of care than twenty poonda pf
thc ordinary roots.
SARSAPARILLAN is only one ot the Ingredients
that forms this truly wonderful medicine; and it is
the only compensating remedy that communicates
its purifying, cleansing and reinvigorating proper?
ties through the BLOOD, SWEAT, URINE, and
other secretions, securing a harmonious functional
action of every depraved organ and gland in the sys?
tem, if the blood is corrupt, the Resolvent will
make it pure. If the Lunns are ulcerated and sore,
secreting thick phlegm and prurelent matter, tate
Resolvent will loosen thia deposit and repair the
wasting lung with BOUL?" and healthy material. If
the Skin ls covered with pimples, spots, postul?e,
sores, ulcers, Ac., the Resolvent will quickly remove
these annoyances. If mercury is deposited in the
bones and bas accumulated m the sjptem, the Re?
solvent will drive lt out If the Tbroat or Bronchial
Glands ore ulcerated, the Resolvent will care these
signs ot an early waste. Direct remedies, possess?
ing only exclusive properties, aro hurtful, aa they
Increase the functional secretions of on*- organ by
suspending the constituent secretions ol others;
hence, a compensating remedy lt?e the Resolvent ls
tho only means of a permanent cure.
BEAR IN MIND THAT EVERY. DROF OF BLOOD
Impregnated with the Resolvent and absorbed io
supply the waste of tho body, will make pure, sound
and healthy flesh and flhr*>. The first dose that' is
taken commences ita work of purification and m.

Important to Know now to Use "Rad.

and Dangerous Attacks 1
ur OWN CASE.
On Saturdav nl^ht, tho 13th, I was violently -re teed
with Congestion of the Lungs. For a few days pre?
vious I felt a dull pain over my left lung, with
occasional coughs, bul being actively engaged, paid
no otteutioii to it. When seize?, the pam was sa
piercing, cuttins and excruciating, that every breath
drawn was like a red hot kuite cutting my lung. Be?
ing absent f:om home, I sent out for three bottles of
BADWAY'S RELIEF, applied the entire lot to my
luum, bock, shoulders. Ac, and in a few momenta
got up couuter-irritati'ju. Respirations were easy,
and, as thc skin becatnn red lened, all pain ceased.
In half an hour I was frc from ;>ain, nd all signo
of Congestion, Ind. mmarion. *c, gon\ This ls an
important cure. It is well tua; c cry oue should
know how to use this remedy iu vere attacks. The
same rule holds good in cates of Inflammation of
tho Loins, Rowel3. Kiducy- and Stomach. Apply
the RELIrF freely; soik ..e 6kin wit!-it. It will
instantly uceare the wii:v rawal of the in^ammation
to the suriace. aud > rsous uow suffering may, in
Towry MINUTES, bj oree, from pain.
Bi cases where inflammation has existed for a
length of nme, in addition to the RELIEF, take si*
ol JUADWA?'S PILLS. Powder them, in half an
hour, iu most cases, they will operate. If not, re?
peat the dose Lu one or two hours at the furthest
thfv will operate, and thc patient soon get wed. In
Bilious, Typhoid. Fever and Ague, tats treatment is
sure to cure. Let it be tried.
