The South Carolina Institute lor the educa?
tion of the deal and dumb and the blind, sit
nate near Cedar Spring, four miles south of
?partanburg Courthouse, yesterday gave a
-public exhibition and concert. At an early
"nour In the morning vehicles of every rjeserip
?lien, from the elegant carriage drawn by a
fr Dorti ve pair of bays or creams to the plodding
one-horse vehicle, were In active motion in
our streets, and wending their way to the
! festive hall for their inmates to witness the
! exhibition of the results ol the fidelity and
[ the proficiency ot pupils under circumstances
j of acknowledged difficulty. At about the ap?
pointed hour of 10 A. M. the exercises com
. menced, with an anthem ot praise from stu?
dents of the institute who were arranged lo
order OD tbe rostrum, in front, or a large and
: most attentive audience assembled from town

ness tbe performance ana improvements of
ttl Se unfortunate deaf, dumb and blind,
tjnter the anthem ot praise a prayer was - re
?I hearsed lo sign language by the principal,
[' Prolessor Boughten.
The department of the blind was then ex?
am! ned, commencing with those who bad
only been recipients of the benefits of thia
humane Institution for the past six months,
and dnishlng with the classes of longer j
standing. And then the examination of the
dent and dumb was witnessed, and both de-;
partm-nts exhibited no want or defect bo the
pan of their .Instructors in an almost opening |
the eyes of the blind and loosening of the.
tongue and opening ot the ears ol the deaf ]
. and dumb, for several ol tbe blind read with
more accuracy and speed than m?ny with the
same opportunities could do with open eyes,
r ana In other branches were readier In their
? replies than often heard on occasions ot rx
h amlnatloosat other schools, while the dear j
I and dumb exhibited to their spectators on
? their several black boards a B wi ti ness and ac
; curacy in calculation, In writing and In 'an?
swers to questions from the audience, that few
,? would realize unless they witnessed the scene.
. The examination of the several classes oc?
cupied ti 16 time, to the complete satisfaction'
3 ot all present, until about the hour of one
o'clock:, when a recess was given for one and a
5 half hours, which was spent by the several
I -v groups around under the cooling shade of the
-ft large and massive oaks, in demolishing the
many good things that this part of the colinty
I can supply, and few counties can supply more
p ur better of the substantials of life.
Alter recess the large assembly met again,
in the extensive ball of the Institute, which
was tastefully dressed in evergreens, to par
Ucipate in part second, which was the concert,
: and for hours were regaled with a perform
? i. ance ot rich and exquisite music from the pu?
pils of the Institute and tho exe'-lient or ches-i
- - tra. Some twenty-five well selecte.' and well ar
! ranged pieces were performed ia % masterly
manner and listened to with delight. Just be?
fore the last piece was performed, Professor
N. F. Walker, son of the founder ot this most
excellent and humar-? institution, gave notice
thal, aa part ot tnt ooard of trustees were
present, consisting ot his Excellency the
Gbrernor, Comptroller-General Neagle, and
State Superintendent of Education Jh>on, he
would be glad to hear from them. Each of
them responded briefly, after which, the clos?
ing piece, "the Village Festival," by the lull I
orchestra was performed, and the audience [
dispersed, feeling that ihey were richly re?
warded in what tbey bad heard and witnessed
Irom tbe pupils, and In the zeal displayed by
their Instructora to make all welcome, aud to
sbow that the blind could be made te see by
feeling, and the deaf and dumb to talk and
hear by seeing. The wonderful proficiency ol
the pupils certainly deserves a hearty "well
.lone" to their patient and' earnest as well a
I . zealous and competent instructors. MARSH.

Jost how this very-Important fact (If it bea.
tact) has been ascertained does not appear,
though the names ol' the arbitrators of that

show that the sensational special qispatcnes
from Geneva that fresh troubles have arisen
over th?* indirect claims questions are utterly
unfounded. On the contrary, it does appear
that they are even lobe made the subject of
future negotiations, though, thut point may
not be d-fluitely considered disposed of as an

Influenced In making their decision by any
consideration personal to myself, and If tbey
could be I'do not desire ii. Hence I have aald
nothing to any Democrat unless he first ad?
dressed me, and, even then, I have gone no
further than to say that, if I should be elected,
I would treat all those who supported me
alike, not asking whether they had been In
the past Republicans or Democrats. . ? *

out many a sailor upon the wharf, opposii
and a chorus of laughter echoed from tl
steamer as one bareheaded and humpbacked
nf shore-sleeved blouse, an apolog?tica! pair
pants and bare feet, began to caper Dlmbly
tho inspiring strains of the music! Loud a
planse followed each saltatory feat, and the n
couth figure was yet revolving like a spin nh
Dervish upon the poop of his vessel, as t
enthusiastic audience glided out of the doi
and down the river upon their swift steamer
TUB TRIP Ur THE ASULKT
was most enjoyable. A floe breeze upon tl
water made the decks of the steamer ad
lightful resting place alter tho march, ai
every bend of the bold river brought new at
varied scenes lo view, which afforded uncee
lng subjects tor comment and admirailo
The steamer moved rapidly along with 1
goodly company at ease, thelrjests and laug
ter being occasionally Interrupted by tl
sharp crack of a rifle as the sanguine mark
men broke rudely upon the meditations
some Indolent "poor Job" or alligator upc
the muddy banks ot ihe river. At th? fir
alarm scores of riflemen seized their shootli
Iron's, and formed continuous lines along boi
sides of the steamer. Cartridges were rammi
down, and woe betide, the unlucky " 'gate
wu lc ti-dared to show' the smallest particle
a snout above ihe water.- At a sharp ben
of the river, however, a veritable young 'gat?
was discovered snoozing in the sun upon tl
hard beach. The boat was almost npon tl
saurian, when a shout upon the larboard to
that a 'gator was at hand, and the s ta rb oat
line of rifles rushed over to the attack. Tl
small steamer careened over under the unu
ual rush, and a score of lilies were point,
downwards, aod a score of minnie bulle
went peppering the beach In and around tl
game. The enemy was thrown into COB!
sion at once, and the newly-awakened 'gan
instead of rushing into the water, run blind
high and dry on the beach.
A STEADY FIRE
was kept up at him uniil the boat bad left bl
frr behind, when the animal was seen to crai
slowly down to the water and swim off. I
was pronounced dead, however, and no lei
than eighteen marksmen claimed the hom
and scored their 'gator. As the river narrow
ed, however, dozens of the ugly animals coul
be seen, every one of which were greete
with a shower of minnie balls. This was kej
up until the sieamer arrived at Middleto
Place. The'gatorsmust hive suffered terribly
and their fossilized 'bones will form a valuabl
deposit for phosphate hunting generations ii
ages to come. After some difficulty in bring
lng the steamer up to. the wharf, on accoun
ot the very low tide, the riflemen effected i
landing and, crossing the small rice fields
entered the grounds of .Middleton Place, es
oorted by the hospitable proprietor himself
Here the marooners refreshed themselve
awhile among the shady walks, and rested be
neath the primeval oaks adorning the rive:
banks. One ol the moss-covered monarchs
with a rustic bench around his base, was i
magnificent, venerable old tree one hundrec
and seventy-lour years ago, when the place
was first settled by the original owner. Th?
buildings were all burned daring the war
and the massive wal's alone re.maln.standing
but the splendid* lawns, regularly laid on
grounds, the gardens sloping 1n terraces fron
the residence down to the river bank coull
not be removed or destroyed, apd yet re m ali
a source of pleasure to numerous excur

in position, a cask of beer was broached and
