WALHALLA, S. C., August 27.-The weather
bah been very dry and hot here for several
weekai until yesterday, when we were favored
with a good rain. The crops are looking bad,
and there ia a great deal of complaint that
I there will be not mach eora made. Some far?

bot, as a general thing, those that are expect?
ing to make oom to sell always say that, al?
though I will admit that there will not so much
oom be made as there was last year.
Taxpaying is still going on, the time for col?
lecting having been extended. A great many
of those that make application for a redaction
. of their taxes, through the county auditor,
'tuve bad their taxes reduced, while some come
back disapproved. I am told that som? would
elose their petition by saying, "I am a good
Radical, and h*vS always been one," thereby
expecting to have a larger reduction made; but
the State Auditor should have said that politics
had nothing to do with that, and sent them
back disapproved. Pietty bard on Snider. As?

THE GEBAT BOAT BACE.
OXFORD WIN? Bf THREE LENGTH8.
A Graphie Description of the Straggle
and the Defeat.
The New York papers, ol Saturday, came to
us filled with telegraphic accounts of the Ox?
ford and Harvard boat race, which took place
on the preceding day. The telegrams pub?
lished lu THE NEWB have informed our readers
of the defeat of the Harvard by the Oxford
crew. The race was so grand and stirring an
affair that the particulars will be read every?
where with interest.
LONDON TURNS OUT.
A telegram dated London, Friday afternoon,
Over one million persons witnessed (be srcat
n tarnation al race between Harvard and Oxford
to-day. The excitement was unprecedented.
Loudon city was almost entirely deserted, and
business was totally neglected. Everybody
talked about tbe race, and everybody wore
either the Oxford or Harvard colors. From
early in the morning until lato in tbe afternoon
vehicles of all descriptions, heavily laden with
sweltering people, crowded all the roads lead?
ing to tbe course. Tho day was hot, and the
crowd was bot. Tho roads in the vicinity of
Putney, Hammersmith, Chiswick, Barnes,Mort?
lake, ore. were thronged with pedestrians. Tbe
railway companies found th msolvos almost
unable to provide cais sufficient lo carry the
vast numbers in waiting at tho depot. Dukes,
costermongers, princes, cordwainers, lords,
fishmongers, earls, and roughs poured to the
river bank in one conglomerated mass. Many
ladies were present. Booms commanding
views of the course were rented at fabulous
prices. Some brought as high as ?100.
MUH ON THE BITES.
The steamer London Pride waa anchored
abreast of the Thames Conservatory yaout.
The Prince of Wales, it is affirmed, stood upon
her deck surrounded by several members of
the royal family, all carried large lorgnettes.
Tbe umpire's boat was but a few feet distant.
Thomas Hughes, the umpire, was surroucded
by a group of distinguished gentlemen, among
them Mr. Gladstone, Bulwer Lytton, the Count
de Paris, John Stuart Mill, Charles Reade, and
others. The arrangements belne under the
directions of the Thames Conservators, that
body of gentlemen exerted themselves to the
utmost to insure "a fair field and no favor" for
the two crews. The captains of steamboats
on the river were served with printed instr ic
tiona forbidding them to come beyond a mark
mapped out by buoys across the river, and the
river police were active in keeping back and
arresting tbe progress of craft that now and
again shot out bey nd the prescribed limits.
In fact, the arrangements were as perfect as
mortal mau could make them.
CONDITION OF THE CHEWS.
Tho Harvards remained in their quarters
during the greater part of the day. A great
many American and Enghsh gent lomen called
upon them, but lew were admitted. It waa
freely asserted that the American crow wero
overtrained. The condition of Simmons and
Loring was the subject of frequent comment.
The former was suffering from diarrhoea, and
the latter was troubled with an angry boil. The
American crew, however, were quite confident.
Blaiklo and Josh Ward wote smiling faces,
and occasionally took tbe long odds offered on
tbe English crew. Kelley was cool and calcu?
lating, and Bald but little. Some of tho mem?
bers ot the Amer can Legation appeared des?
pondent, but with this exception, all seemed
confident of a riirht race, with a good square
chanco for an American victory.
During the day tbe Oxfords kepi quiet. None
but favored friends were welcomed to their
headquartere. A fow of the English nobility
and a half dozen boatingmen and collegians re?
mained with them until late in the afternoon.
All ot their friends were enthusiastic, and
freely offered two to one on their success. J he
crew were io tip-top condition. They based
thor hopes of victory upon their superior bot?
tom. lc waa generally conceded that Ha vard
would take the lead and keep it as far as the
Hammersmith Bridge. "But they can't stay."
said Yarborough, '-you may bo sure of it."
Ibis seemed to be the general opinion of the
vast masses of Englishmen that Hued the
banks of the river.
THE BETTING AND THE SPECTATORS.
The Thames was fringed with yelling spec?
tators. Every available boat and housetop was
covered with men and women. The betting
was heavy. The long odds offered on Oxford
was freely taken by tbe Americans and some
of tbe English. Kelly says that over a million
pounds sterling were wagered in London alone.
Many of toe ladies wore the magenta colors
of Harvard, and ventured sovereigns ou the
ski]] and endurance of the Americans.
THE CREWS OK THE RIVER.
The Oxford crew glided out of the London
boathouse at a quarter ot tour. Their appear?
ance tras the signal for an immense cheer,
which was carried op and down both banks of
the river for miles. As they paddled toward
the Star and Gaiter their long sweeping body
stroke elicited another cheer, and drew out a
thousand exclamations of admiration. The
sun was shining brightly, and tho water was
nearly as smooth as a mirror. Scarcely a
breath of air was stirring. The oars of the
sturdy Englishmen rose and fell like the steady
sweep of an eagle's wing. Their bodies were
bare and their skits were well tanned. Turn?
ing off at the Star and Garter, they swept
down (o the starting-post at Putney Bridge,
where another cheer mounted the air and was
wafted up the river. Their stroke was moder?
ate and their faces bore the calm, import ur bed
look peculiar ti English sporting men.
Five minn es elapsed. Tho Harvards spurted
out in the stream. Another cheer flew over
the vaet multitude, but it lacked the volume ot
its predecessor. Naked to the tva:st and
bronzed, the shoulder-blades of the Harvaids
rolled in their sockets, and their oars took the
water with marvellous precisi' n. Down toward
the 8take-boat they sped with the grace of a
water fowl. The multitude waved their hand?
kerchiefs, and sent spasmodic cheers in the
wake of the gallant crew. 1 he Oxfords spoke
not a word as Ibo Ha. vards ranged themselves
at their aide. The vast crowd became breath?
less with excitement.
"OFF, GENTLEMEN I"
The tioy sterns of the spear-like b >ats ware
ranged on a level. The crews held their oars
iu readiness. Not even a whisper was heard.
A slight nervousness, however, was observed
in the movements of Simmons. Loring sat
like a statue, eager-eyed and immovable.
Little Burnham furtively glanced at the Oxford
coxswain, and silently awaited thc word. The
English crew tat with their bodies bent to the
trout and arms extended, sUdd, and apparent?
ly indifferent. The Harvard crew had won the
toss for the position, and chose the Middlesex
side, tbe outside of the semi-circle. It was
five o'clock, fourteen minutes, and six and a
half seconds. The tide was sluggish, and a
light southwest breeze prevailed, with tbe wa?
ter aa smooth as a mirror. There was a mo?
ment of dead eilenco.
"Off, gentlemen !" said the starter, in a clear
And they were off-off like tbe wind. The
judges clicked the springs of their watches.
At the same moment an anxious spectator
knocked Tom Hughes' bat into tbe water with
his elbow. The Harvards were first to catoh
the water and took the lead, gaining rapidly
upon their opponents, making forty-five
strokes per minute against the Oxfords forty.
THE Ri CE.
There was a flutter amoag the vast multi?
tude lining the banks as the Harvards sped to
the front. A million eyes were fixed upon
their flashing oars. At Bishop's Creek, three
furlongs from the bridge, they had gained half
a length and were still gaining. Their quick
stroke seemed to sing a song of triumph. They
reached the Willows, and the stern of their
boat was even with the bow of the Oxford's.
Here there was au evident slack in their speed,
and the Oxfords crept up a quarter of a length.
A nest ot cheers from Beverly rang out a story
of Enghsh satisfaction. Three quarters of a
a mile was thrown to the rear, and still
the Americans held a good lead. At
Craven Point the Oxfords .doggedly main?
tained their provoking steady drag, while
tbe Harvarde spurted ahead like mid. Da
Wharf and Bose Cottage flew by. A atre
of daylight was opened between the t<
boats. Tbe gap was increased, until at Cn
tree, a mile and an eighth from the start,
tbe aqueduct the Americans were fully V
lengths ahead. They were pulling at the rt
of tortv-tbree strokes per min?te, tbe Oxfor
holding their own at thirty-eight strokt
Above the point, the coxswain of tbe Eat var
hugged the Middlesex thore, and the Oxfor
slightly quickened tbeir speed. At the so
works, a mile and a half from the aquedut
thev had closed the gap, and Harvard held
lead of half a length by the skin of their teei
Was dead abead, and both boats were going 1

was reached, and a subdued murmur from t
Bpectatora above reached tbe ears of the ro
era as they entered its shadow. From t
soap works to the bridge Harvard went wi
magnificent speed, but in shooting the brid
their distance was lost. Opposite the mide
wall the Oxiords spurted sod came up grad
ally to the Harvards, but when opposite "t
Doves," the boats were found to be too clo
together, and tbe Harvards gave way. .

On return the feeling between the adherent
of tho two sides was very friendly, on accoun
of the exlraordinary care taken by all, that tb?
Harvard should have nothing to complain of
WHY IT WAS.
There are various theories of tho cause o:
Harvards failures. It is rumored that tbcii
diet bas been lately vegetarian, but it ia no
true. Loring is criticised for not having Eng
Iish couching; Burnham tor bad steering, bu
minygooa judges declare that the race wai
almost a repetition ot the race between th?
English universities, and Harvard failed be
cause ita atyle ia that of Cambridge.
ODDS AND ENDS.
Among the Americios who witnessed) the
race were Consuls Dudley and Morse, the Hon.
S. S. Cox, Messrs. Wolker, Morgan, Hturgis
and Wilke?. The American press was large);
repiesented, aud a number of English literary
men were present.
A good deal of money wa-, lost by bets heine
taken when Oxford was behind. Tbe largest
loss by an American was lour hundred pounds.
An effort was mad: to ioul Oxlord. It will
be investigated. The individual was in dress
like a member of a famous rowing dub, aud a
lad was in hie boat. No one supposes it other
than an attempt to wi o a bot.
Mr. Simmons goes to Heidelberg to pursue
hie studies. He has gained much admiration
for bis beautiful rowiog. as bas Lorine for his
science. Thomas Hughes visited the eren
just before the race. He has dined with thc
Hall, the Oxford coxswain, who looks like a
boy of twelve years, receives much praise foi
Wormall editor of Bell's Life, attributes
much to wu Jan's four j ears' experience of the
course with the Cambridge races.
Kelly, the coach, declares that the lack ol
scientific rowing and bad steering Jost the
race. On the press boat there we-e only fifty
Bersons, to which tbe number was limited by
ie Thames Conservancy. Among those on it
representing American journals were Dicey,
Chickson, Kirwan, Smalley, and one Wilkes
was on the umpire's boat. No question was
raised before the umpires, who were Galston,
captain of the London Bowing Club, for the
Harvard crew, and Chi tty, for the Oxford crew,
Hughes being the referee.
Fay, of the Harvard crew, made desperate
efforts to alter the tide ot affaira, and although
I the coxswain threw water over his men and
roused them to fresh exertions every minute,
they gradually fell astern. Then they put on
another spurt, and rapidly drew up to their
competitors, but it died out, and Oxford pre?
served the lead.
A KEW RACE MOOTED.
One of the members of the Harvard crew,
in telegraphing the result of the race to a rela?
tive in New York, states that the complaint with
abich Simmons was Buffering both before and
daring the race manifested itself most strongly
when their boat reached the Soap Works, at
which time Harvard was leading by sometbing
over a length. Simmons did not pull with
anything like bis accustomed sweep and vigor,
and eeemed to be actually suffering. At the
finish, and immediately after V e signal gun
announced the termination of the race, he
staggered and fell back, and was only aa ved
from falling by being caught by a member ol the
crew. His illness, diarrhoea, was the cause,
and had during the race a visible effect on tbe
j decreased speed of the boat.
After the race a proposition waa advanced to
I have another trial m one week's time. The
Oxford partially agreed to the proposition, lt
is, however, a matter of great uncertainty
whether efforts to that effect will be successful.
THE NEWS IN NEW TOBE.
At the gold-room, in New York, the first dis?
patch received was from thc Associated Press,
announcing that Oxford had won by three
lengths. This dispatch was received with gen?
eral sensation and disgust that the members
took no pains to conceal. Short iv after a ru?
mor spread about that the dispatch bad been
incorrectly transmitted, and that it was really
the Harvard boys that had won by three
lengths. This announcement created toe wild?
est excitement, and cheer upon cheer rent the
air from tho assembled multitude. Abou" the
timo thia rumor had become well circulated,
and the excitement w is reaching a higb pitch,
a respectable and well-known member of the
boord rushed to the president's desk, holding
o dispatch in his hand. Tbe dispatch was at
once found to confirm the mm or that tbe Har?
vards bad won tho race. A sanguino opera?
tor offered $100 against $5 that Harvard
had won, and for some little time there
waa a rivalry among the gentlemen who were
thus expressing their faith in the plucky boys
across the water, lt was not until a letter was
received from Mr. Simonton, ex plain i . g that
the dispatch received etas a forgery, that the
excitement died out. In the stock room the
same scene was enacted. A similar dispatch
was produced and the aamo wild excitement
prevailed, and the esme feeling of disappoint?
ment pervaded the assembly when this dis?
patch was pronounced false. Last evening at
the hotels wealthy citizens, railroad men, and
others were consoling each other over the de?
feat of Harvard by plans to induce the Oxford
crew to come to thia country and row the Har?
vard crew in American waters under American
conditions as completely as our boys had ac?
cepted English conditions in visiting English
watos. Many were the boasts that the Ox?
ford crew without the coxswain would fled the
Harvard stroke too much for them.

COMMENTS OF THE ENGLISH PBK38.
The Eoglisb press on Saturday commented
on tbe race at length:
The Times, reviewing the contest, says:
"The inferiority of the Americans was in a
most pardonable point-the steering. Their
coxswain undoubtedly lost ground, but not
enough to account for the distance between
the boats at the end of the race. Until the
Amencaus retrieve this defeat, they must ac?
knowledge that our style of rowing is the best .
The Americans met with perfectly fair play,
and if the Englishmen go to America they will
meet with similar treatment. May all our
future international struggles be conducted in
the same spirit, and Thieu ever side wins may
the vanquished have as little reason to feel
regret for their defeat."
The News declares, if the Harvards did not
command success, they deserved it. and hopes
the American \ sch tm en on the Atlantic may
avenge the noble defeat of (heir countrymen.
The Star says: "The Americans will long
remember the chivalric bearing of their oppo?
nents, who, tbougb resolved to win, never for?
got that the Harvards were foemen worthy of
their oars. The strife between New and Old
England, on the river from which the Pilgrim .
Fathers started, has a historic side, and ap?
peals to the imagination of the youth of both
conni ries. If New England had won, the older
country would have shared in the triumph of
its descendants. The fates decided otherwise.

DARLINGTON, 8. G., August 27.-The cotton
crop in Darlington County ia fair, but the corn
ia much injured for want of rain. Cern will
have to be bought next season to some ex?
tent. TLeie are very few farmers coming into
town, as tbey are now gilding np tbeir loins
for the picking and stealing season. Cotton
is opening rapidly, and the thriftless negroes
have already commenced to sacrifice their
small crops by selling it in the seed. As soon
ts they gather a day's pickings, they obtain
from seven to ten cents per pou ad for it.
lc has become so much a matter of habit tor
our people to call themselves poor, that they
caonot give np this plea for the world's sympa
thy; but facts will tell, andas many, very many
of them have pone to the epringa. or to the
North, they must have some spare money, and
the probability of a good deal more from this
There are some evidences of life in this little
town, such as the building of a jail, townball
and market house. Tbe courthouse is to be
rebuilt OB the walla of the ground s'ory, which
is still standing almost intact. Io front of tho
ruins of the old conn house is a sycamore tree,
upon which a negro girl was hung during the
war foi incendiary language. Thia bas caused
this tree to be more than once stripped of its
leaves by the Yankee soldiery, wbo sent th m
North aa mementoes.
Soma ol' the merchants are adding to the
capacity of their stores. One of these, the vil?
lage baker. Schmidt, is putting an addition in
front of his store, fie occupies the second
story as a dwelling, aod last night, being un?
able to sleep from sickness, he heard some one
endeavoring to effect an entrance into his
store, fie raised one of the flooring boards
that bad not yet been nailed down, and shot
one of the party. As it was a moonlight mg ht
he could see indistinctly tbeir number, sex
and color, and says there was noe n?gro man
and either two white women or one white and
one negro woman. Schmidt had only one bar?
rel of bia pistol loaded, but he used this with
effect, shooting down the man, who recovered
from the acock, and, with the women, made
good hiB escape. A good deal of blood was
found on the floor, but no clue to identify the
The weather is still hot, with a alight shower

work for wan? of water. The ex-commissioner
in equity is just preparing to turn over his
papera, etc.. to the clerk of the court, who bas
not been able heretofore to tako them, through

SS-A CARD-SOUTHERN LIFE INSUR?
ANCE COMPANY, ATLANTA DEPARTMENT.
To the People of South Carolina:
The above Company was organzed in 1866, in
consequence of the wholesale forfeiture of Southern
policies by Northern companies. The unparalleled
success of the enterprise has forced several of these
companies to restore their Southern policies, from
the fact that they could not operate in our midst
without the appearance of honesty.
We keep all our money at home to build np our
impoverished country-every dollar of premium
being safely invested in the State from which it ia de?
rived. The institution is purely Southern, and hence
snould appeal with great force to the patriotism and
and sympathy of every Southern heart.
'Tis not our purpose to make war on other com?
panies, but to exhibit the special advantages offered
by this purely Southern Company-founded on
patriotism and solid wealth. Its ratio of assets to
liabilities-the true test of a company's strength-Is
second to none on this continent, being nearly $300
Whenever and wherever we have presented the
claims of this Company, it has not only enlisted the
sympathies of our people, but has also secured their
tai arty co-operation. We have secured 600 policies
in South Carolina since the 10th of February. We
number among our Directors General Wade Hamp?
ton and colonel Wm. Johnston, gentlemen well
known to every citizen of South Carolina. We ap?
peal personally to the people of Eouth Carolina to
assist in pushing forward this deservedly popular

MW SOLOMON'S BITTERS.-THIS PRE?
PARATION, compounded by one of our oldest and
most esteemed diugglsts, has, during the short tune
in which lt has been offered to the public, attained
a reputation which has almost entirely driven out of
mirket the various tonics sud stimulants which, for
a few months, by exorbitant puffing and heavy ad?
vertising, succeeded in building a profitable busi?
ness for their projector;.
Solomon's Bitters are not of the flashy style, de?
pending upon large ad ver ti sing, bought pud) and
fictitious recommendations for a aale to a gullible
public. Their composition is well known to and ap?
proved by many of our best physicians, and the pro?
prietors depend upon the intrinsic merits of their
medicine to make it as popular as it ls curative.
They do net pretend to offer a medicinal prepara?
tion that will cure all the Ills that flesh is heir to,
but they do contend that tho judicious use of these
Bitters will greatly alleviate kumin suffering, and
bring very many to a'state of comparative health
who have long been strangers to that gr?a' blessing.
One good genuine recommendation of any pro?
fessed curative is worth dozens or hundreds of
bought certificates, and the Messrs. SOLOMONS
have only published a few out of the hundreds of un
so'iclted testimonies which the have received. We
this morning give a copy of a letter from Hon. ALIX.
H. STEPHENS, whose peculiarly enfeebled condition
>or the past six months has been known to the whole
country. His few earnest words will go much fur?
ther to cenfirm the good opinion already existing as
to the beneficial qualities of this medicine than
would columns of stereotyped recommendations

A few doses is sufficient to satisfy the most in?
credulous sufferer of its virtue and worth. All
