aim on sight.
Elliott is a Massachusetts negro. Kavanaugh
came down South with the Union army, and is a
hanger-on to the Radical ring.

Bannasch have been sent on for trial. The United
States District Attorney urged that heavy bail be
taken, as the principals of the gang would take
thc prisoners out of jail if twenty thousand dol?

fixed at ten thousand dollars, which Bannasch,
whose factory was seized to-day, gave at once.

THE AGRICULTURAL FAIR.
At the meeting of the Executive Committee
of the State Agricultural and Mechanical So?
ciety, held in Columbia, on Wednesday, it was
determined to issue family tickets of admis?
sion to the grounds during fair week, at $3
for annual and life members and $5 for other
families. Such tickets can, by the 28th instant,
be procured from Colonel Aiken, at the secre?
tary's office, in Columbia.
The following resolution was passed:
Resolved, That the secretary be Instructed
to reqnest ail the newspapers of the
State, to notify their readers that all arti?
cles Intended for exhibition at the approach?
ing fair, will be sent to and returned from Co- j
lumbla by all the railroads in the State, free of |
charge, and all visitors passed to and from Co?
lumbia for one fare.
AU the papers in the State are requested to
extend this notice.
Colonel D. Wyatt Aiken, the secretary of the
The pubUc are assured that the prospects of |
the approaching fair are most flattering. The
old Fair Grounds have been procured, build?
ings are being erected and will be completed
by the time of the fair, and encouraging re?
ports come from ail sections of the State, as to
the Interest manifested in our success, and the
quantity and variety of articles to be exhibited.
ARTICLES FOR EXHIBITION*.
The Columbia Phoenix says:
We learn that the secretary has received a
number of applications from this State and
abroad to rent certain spaces in the building
for exhibitors to show articles not of their own
manufacture. On this subject the committee
decided to make no assessment at this fdr,,
but to allow all such persons the privilege of
exhibiting their articles upon the same terms
as all other^Xhibltors. But hereafter, thc
committee would deem it proper to rent
spaces in the hall to such persons as may not
have articles of their own produce and manu?
facture, but at the same time may be wiUing
to pay for the privilege of exhibiting such gen?
eral articles as they may be interested in.
This is a feature that prevails in the Northern
fairs--is a source of* income to the fair, and

By the following announcement lt will be
seen that there is to be a grand tournament, jn
Columbia during the fair :
The committee to which has been assigned
thc task of arranging the programme and in?

to be held at the approaching agricultural
fair-and at which "the Knights of South Caro?
lina*' will contend pour l'honneur Vamour et les
beaux yeux dis dames-announces the notice
and rules as follows :
The tournament will come off on such day
as may be most comfortable to the general ar?
rangement of the fair-probably the last day.
AU who deidre to ride will forward their
names, the entrance fee of $5 each, and the
^Character he proposes to represent, to R.
I 0*Neale, Jr., Leo., secretary, Columbia, 8. C.
The course will be in length about 150
yards; this distance must be ridden in nine
seconds; the weapon wUl be the sabre; the
first post (the posts will be about di feet in
height) wlU be fifty yards from the starting
point: the next post and the ring will be at In?

wUl be at first head "right cut against cav?
alry;" second head "point;" and third at the
ring, 2? inches in diameter, "tierce point."
The name of the knight wiU be caUed-he
will answer instantly-the bugle will sound
and the watch be sprung ; and If he makes a
a false start he loses his ride. After the an?
swer to the cal! and the sound of the bugle,
no accident will entitle the knight to a new
ride. These rules are essential to secure time
The first, second, third and fourth prizes
will be announced at a later day.
These four successful knights* will crown the
queen and elect the three maids of honor.
At a general meeting of the knights, to be
held in Columbia, the judges, committees, Ac,

The Hardwick Affair.
The Chester Reporter says: "As we stated
last week, James Hardwick disappeared im?
mediately after thc fatal difficulty with Woods.
Hubbard and his constables have made earnest
efforts, so we hear, to discover his whereabouts,
but so far without success. On Wednesday last,
Wm. Hardwick, father of James Hardwick,
was arrested upon the charge of aiding and
abetting in the killing of Woods, and on
Saturday the case was before Magistrates
Cornwell and Heister for examination. The
evidence was conclusive that Wm. Hardwick
was in no wise implicated in tho affair, being
at the time of the difficulty at least a quarter
of a mile distant, and not appearing upon the
scene until the tragedy was accomplished. He
was accordingly discharged. "
At a meeting of thc citizens of Sumter, the
following resolutions were adopted:
Resolved, That those who engage in the
iniquitous traffic in seed cotton, and who shall
persist in thc same, can only be regarded as
enemies to religion, morality and the best
interest of the community which they disgrace,
and shall be treated accordingly by us.
And feeling that this matter should be
reached and controlled by law.
Resolved. That application be made to the
next Legislature to enact such laws as shall
arrest this nefarious traffic-making it a penal
offence, or by taxation so heavy as to amount
to absolute prohn^on.
And as this is a matter which greatly concerns
the welfare and best interests of agriculture at
Resolved, That thc State Agricultural Society
is requested to take such action in the premi?
ses, as it in its wisdom shall deem best.
Resolved, That aU our merchants throughout
the county be requested to devise means to
protect the planting community from the evils
complained of in the foregoing resolutions.

been victimized (or at least the State has) by
these sharpers. Has Senator Sprague any

THE CITY OF LIVERPOOL.
An Interesting Sketch-Solid Aspect of
the Place-The Greatness of Liverpool
Founded on the Negro-Americans and
American Manners-C u r i o u s Con?
A correspondent of the New York Times
sends to that paper the following very pleasant
Bketch of the great cotton market of the
world, which thousands of our own people will ,
read with interest : i
I have visited and written letters from most '
of the important towns in thc United King?
dom, but this is my first visit to Liverpool, 1
with the slight exception of once passing
through it on my way to Ireland. Most Amerl- !
cans who visit Europe also pass through Liver- .
pool on their way to Paris. They may stop for
a day or two in London. Very few, I believe. 1
make any stay in one of the most Important ;
commercial cities In Europe.
It is natural enough, out still a mistake. 1
Liverpool is New York over again, but with a
difference. And lt is worth seeing. Liverpool
and Birkenhead lie on the shores of the broad !
estuary of the River Mersey, Uko New York
and Brooklyn on the East River; only the river 1
runs nearly due north into the Irish Sea on the 1
west. Steam ferry boats cross the river and 1
run to the villages along sh^re. There ls a
brown stone fort at the rour.h of the river. 1
surrounded by water at high tide, somewhat :
like Fort Lafayette, anda lighthouse; but the 1
entrance to the roadstead is low and unpictur?
esque-) The river Itself, however, ls a very 1
grandaud lively spectacle. A hundred Bhlpa 1
and steamers of all nations lie at anchor or are I
arriving and departing. The American sees
the stars and stripes floating from the tall ta?
pering masts of the finest vessels in the har?
bor. "A fresh breeze from north to west gives
enough motion for comfort, and along thc
eastern shore of the river lies the town of Liv?
erpool, fringed by five miles of the finest docks
in the world, where a large part of the world's
shipping lies packed close as herrings at the
high tide level. The lover ol' water craft, can
wander here at will, and have no end of cn*
he town rises with a gradual ascent from
the water to the breezy heights of the eastern
suburbs, so there can be no excuse for bad
drainage. The formation is brown sand-stone,
covered along the shore with a yellow sand so
fine that it drifts like snow. The water ls soft
and pure. I see no reason why Liverpool
might not be one of the healthiest towns In the
world. The sad truth is, that Its death rate is
the highest In the United Kingdom-and this,
in spite of the fact that a large portion of it is,
in a sanitary point of view, everything that
could be desired. Three-fourths of Liverpool
have wide streets, good air, good water, good
drainage, everything but parks, squares, and
open spaces-so much neglected In most com?
mercial towns. Liverpool 1B about as solidly
built over as Cincinnati, without the excuse of
Most English towns have antiquities; old cas?
tles, churches, Roman remains, a dignifying
past. Liverpool has none of these-not ari old
wall, tower, street, church, nor an old building
or ruin of any sort. There was a fishing village
at the mouth of the Mersey at an early period,
no doubt. In the time of James 1,1C18, Liver?
pool owned twenty-four vessels, whose united
tonnage would scarcely equal one good ship of
the present day. The real trade,growth and pros?
perity of the town began about 1710. when Liv?
erpool became one of the mo6t active ports en?
gaged in the b'.ave trade. In 1760, Liverpool had
ninety vessels engaged In this trade. They could
carry about 25,750 slaves. These negroes were
brought here in great numbera and sent to
America and thc Weet Indies. The trade was
then considered highly respectable, was carried
on under Royal chartcrs,and made immense for?
tunes for those engaged in it. The merchants
of Liverpool were also celebrated for pri?
vateering, blockade running and similar enter?
prises. When the slave trade at length be?
came unfashionable, Liverpool still flourished
on the products of slave labor, and became
the chief entrepot for cotton, sugar, tobacco,
&c. The negro, in fact, has built Liverpool,
and given to lt its solidity, its grandeur, Its
wonderful prosperity. Liverpool has doubled
Its trade and population every sixteen years
for the post century, and though Lancashire
is now under a cloud, and cotton, If king, is
like some other kings,-?tn difficulties, there
seems to be little check to its growth and
What we of our shingly, make-shift new
world have to admire in Liverpool is the mas?
sive grandeur and solidity of Its works. The
merchants of Liverpool, If they got their
money by the slave trade and other forms of
what the world now calls piracy, built for pos?
terity. The five miles of stone docks, making
perhaps twenty-five miles of massive masonry,
which shelter the mercantile navies of the
world, constitute a work of which any nation
might be proud. They make the rotting wooden
piers around New York seem very shabby.
And thc public and commercial buildings of
Liverpool are of corresponding grandeur. The
older ones, it is true, have not much architec?
tural beauty to boast of ; they are about as ugly
as they can be, but built of stone, mas
sive and capacious, am inc newer ouuo
ings are as beautiful as they are grand.
Edinburgh ha? finer sites, more pic?
turesque localities, a mingling of antique and
modern-historic memories-but no town in
England has such public and commercial edi?
fices as Liverpool. Those of London do not
compare with them. They arc vast, enduring,
magnificent. And when you consider that
here Is no capital, no seat of government,
simply a commercial seaport, and that the
town "has been built by Individual merchants
or by the same men as members of a corpora?
tion, it ls really wonderful. The line of docks
and shipping, the Exchange and Its surround?
ing edifices. St. George's Hall, Brown's Free
Public library and Museum, are each and all
worth coming to see-assuredly worth stop?
ping to look at, when you have crossed the
Atlantic; for you may gravel over Europe and
see nothing like them.
The public spirit which has built those monu?
ments of commercial enterprise and prosperi?
ty h as done many other things, perhaps even
more ad ml: able. The corporation baths, snp
plled with fresh and salt water, in different
gatts of the town, give swimming and other
aths at prices to snit all classes, and some of
these are so large that public swimming
matches are held in them. Liverpool has the
most famous gymnasium in England, with pub?
lic exhibitions three evenings a week. Its
principal theatres are so good, and tho audi?
ences so appreciative, that It has been for sev?
eral years the practice to bring out new pieces
here'before producing them in the metropolis.
The reading room of thc Merchants' Ex?
change is one of the -finest In the world,
and the free library given to the town
by Slr William Brown, one of 1rs great
merchants, Is the largest of the kind,
and such an Institution as does not exist In
London. The museum, which occupies nearly
the whole ot the large building, also given tb
the town by thc same munificentfPenefactor,
ranks next to the British Museum in its extent
and completeness, and is much better accom?
modated as to ?pac? When will any Ameri?
can city of half a million population, when will
New York Itself, have such a library and such
a museum ? I do not forget thc Astor Library
nor the Cooper Institute; but the Astor Libra?
ry Is not for the masses of the people, and I
have never seen a decenMnuacum In America.
There are fragments hewand there, but a free,
Fublic museum, open to the whole people, is,
believe, something yet to be begun in our
St. George's Hall stands In an open space In
the centre of Liverpool-an edifice In thc
Corinthian style, 465 feet in length, with hun?
dreds of Corinthian columns of the most
exquisite proportions, and the whole edifice is
one of great beauty. It is BO beautiful in its
symmetry that it does not seem large. Yon
can only see Its real size by contrast with
some other building. Near It on one side is a
church,.Georgian Gothic, of ordinary dimen?
sions, about the size of an average New York
churth. lt ls so lost, so utterly dwarfed by St.
George's Hall, that it looks like a toy church.
The iHusion is complete. The houses on the
Hudson, at thc foot of the Palisades, fro? the
deck ot a steamer look like bird cages. The gran?
deur of SL George's Hall produces the same
effect, fne building contains the law courts,
a concert hall 75 feet square and 40 feet
high, an immense hall for public meetings
109 feet long, 75 feet 9 inches wide, and 87 feet
6 Inches high. This room contains one of the
largest organs in the world, which is played
upon twice a week for the public, by Mr. Best,
the corporation organist. Besides these great
hails there are in the edifice, as a guide book
informs me, -'numerous suitable apartments
for the convenience of parties engaged in any?
thing that may be going fonvard." These will
afford excellent accommodation to the various
sections of the British Assoc'a lon, which is
to meet here next year, under the pr?sidence
of that must distinguished descendant of the
chimpanzee by natural selection, Professor
Huxley; naturally selected by the Darwinians
as, considering "man's place in nature," the
fittest to preside over its deliberations. I hope
Professor Agassiz, who claims a less distin?
guished descent, will find it convenient to be
present en that occasion.
Liverpool Is more like New York, more Ame?
rican in Its manner? and customs, than any
European town. There must be at all times
some hundreds-perhaps I might say thous?
ands-of Americans along the docks and gath?
ered about the centres of business. You see
everywhere American faces, and hear the va?
ried American accent ranging from Bangor to
Galveston. Yesterday on 'Change a swarthy
Southerner lounged up to an Epgllsh mer?
chant or cotton broker. "Look here," said
he "don't you know anybody that's got some
New Orleans papers?" "Yes, I have got
any quantity of them." We'l by-! I'll
come up to your office and see them."
There was not much in that short dialogue ;
only I have never met au Englishman,
with the least claim to be considered a gentle?
man, who would have compelled me to use a
dash In reporting such a conversation. Eng?
lishmen above the lowest class no more swear
than spit. It is very rare Indeed that a well
dressed Englishman is seen in the least intoxi?
cated. I have some hope that the lower classes
?viii soon Imitate their betters in the latter re?
spect, as they have in a great degree in the
former. Anti I wish that Americans who come
to Europe, go on 'Change, and mingle else?
where in European society, would devote a
month or two before they start to as much spit
ling and swearing as would last them till tbov
get home again to the land of the free, wileri
no one has any objections.
The Americanism in Liverpool is generally
a matter of pride-but it is in some things a
matter of mortification. Out of regard to our
national habits, the public resorts of Liverpool
are furnished with spittoons, which are never
seen in other English towns, and American
visitors to the Liverpool bathing village of
New Brighton have compelled thc authorities
to place all over their elegant promenade pier
thc following notice-the like of which I nave
not seen before in Europe : "Gentlemen are
requested not to suit on the floor of the prome?
nade." And visitors are obliged to have this
staring them In the face at every turn-or
worse. And Mrs. Trollope is gone, and Mr.
Sumner ls still making speeches about the
There are other contrasts, but they are com?
paratively slight and unimportant. The Eng?
lishman is always brushed and combed, and his
boots shine, ant] lie has the general air of hav?
ing Just stepped out of a bandbox. If an
American is drawn In Punch, his nationality
consists not more in his long nose and neck,
than his slouching and frowzy appearance.
There ls a museum of Greek statues, wax fig?
ures, Ac, in Liverpool, which includes kings,
queens, murderers, revolutionists, philoso?
phers, bandits-some hundreds of attractive
personages; but I noticed that even In the cave
of horrors, with long lines of murderers pin?
ioned for thc gallows-this saves hands-every
wig was well brushed. The pirates and ban?
dits have long black hair, but it is smooth
and glossy. There are only three person?
ages who look as if they never saw a comb;
these are the late President Lincoln, on the
lett of St. John the Baptist, and Generals Grant
and Lee on his right. As Wilkes Booth is
down stairs among the murderers, his hair ls
as smooth and glossy as the best of them. By?
ron finds himself, thanks to Mrs. Stowe, once
more an object of interest. He waked up one
morning and lound himself (In) famous. In
wax-works lt does not matter much. Two
shilling cditious of the Byron controversy are
out, by the editors of two London weeklies,
and the St. Giles Press has its catchpennies for
the million; so there will not be, thanks to
Mrs. Stowe once moro, a man, woman or child
in this countrv not perfectly familiar with the
"True Story of Lady Byron."'
But this is a digression. American manners
have made their mark on Liverpool-not the
bad manners we really must mend when we
can lind time, but the good. There is a kind?
liness, a sociality, an independence of feeling,
au admitted equality here, not seen elsewhere
in England in the same degree. You have It
In Manchester, no doubt, and over Lancashire
generally; but it seems to me to culminate in
Liverpool. Nowhere are the poor so little
cringing and obsequious; nowhere are the rich
so little overbearing. Thc typical Englishman
cringes to all above, and kicks all below him.
Liverpool has no aristocracy but that which
has come from work. Labor, business, trade,
have made all the great fortunes; and those
who are not rich may be. There is, therefore,
a friendly good fellowship among all classes
very pleasant, aud very American-though,

j?&B-ROSADALIS ?-BALTIMORE, MD.,
MARCH 4,1867.-My daughter having been cured
of a deeply seated disease of the Lungs by your
"ROSADALIS,'' 1 feel i^ny duly to make the fact
kuown to you for the benefit of others. She suf?
fered nearly two years with a hard cough, which
troubled her day and night; at last the emaciated
form, glassy eye, uight sweats, together with the
cough, told too plainly that it was Consumption,
beyond question, eating at her vitals. Our physi?
cian's remedies brought no relief. She was ad?
vised to try your ROSADALIS as a Tonic, which she
did. Imagine my surprise and gratification when
I found her appetite returning. Slowly she re?
gained her strength, her cough and night sweats
gradually ceased, and she is now, after taking
Ave bottles of your medicine, apparently as well
as ever. Yours, respectfully,
- MRS. ANN E. SMITH.

JPJT-A BUSY MAN IS A LOCOMOTIVE,
and life a track. Every night he drives into "the

anew, and away he goes switching off In one di?

business, he forgets that the physical organiza?
tion is'of the most delicate kind. If a hard Iron
locomotive needs constant care, and to be well
oiled up and rubbed off every day, how much
more necessary is it that all men and women
should usc PLANTATION BITTERS, which are the

TER'S STOMACH BITTERS may be truly said to
have enjoyed unnvaUed popularity. Many prep?
arations have been got up to compete with it.
bat they have all fallen into Its wake or sunk
Into oblivion for lack of patronage. From the
first, this now world-renownod Vegetable Tonic
has been both medically aud financially success?
ful. Every year has added to the number of its
friends, and the demand for it, based solely upon
the experimental proofs of its excellence as a pre?
ventive and curative, seems to have no assign?
able limit. Thajpedlcal profession sanction and
approve its uso, and it ls now at the head of the
class or medicines to which it belongs, the ad?
mitted, undisputed sovereign tonic of the age.
The statistics of the United States Revenue De?
partment will verify the statement that it stands
alone and unapproached in the magnitude of its
sales as compared with those of any other pro?
prietary remedy advertised on this side ol the At?
The explanation of this fact may be comprised
In a few words. HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BIT?
TERS is at once the purest, the safest aud the
most potent of all vegetable tonics, aud the best
antidote to every variety of malarious disease.
Hence it is especially adapted to the present sea?
