CHEAP COAL.-The consumers of
coal have great cause for congratu?
lation over the prospects of cheap
fuel during the coming season. The
dealers and monopolists, it is very
evident, have had their day, and
have exhausted their ingenuity and
power to keep coal up to the standard
of high prices, and they must now
succumb to the influences of events
which favor tho consumer. The
wages of workmen at the mines have
been reduced from four to five dollars
per week, the canals are about to
open with freights fixed far below
those of last year, the Heading Hail
road Company have revised their
tariff of charges ?or transportation,
and have ascertained that they can
carry coal at a much less rate than
they have heretofore been doing; but
whether the fact that the Pennsyl?
vania Legislature has just given au?
thority to a new company to gridiron
the coal regions with rails and for?
bidding a greater charge for trans?
portation than two and a half cents
per mile has had anything to do with
convincing the Reading corporation
that they could carry coal for less
than double that price, we are not
advised. The effect of these circum?
stances combined has been seen in
#ie recent auction sales of coal at
Elizabethtown, where a reduction of
three dollars per ton in two months
has been submitted to.

A NEW RAILBOAD BRAKE.-John
Mitchell says in his last Paris letter
to the New York News that M. Au?
guste Achard has just been awarded
the Montyon prize of the year for the
discovery of his electric railway
brakes. This apparatus places at the
immediate disposal of the engineer on
the locomotive complete control of
all brakes of the train at once. With?
out any assistance, and by aid only of
a handle or winch, and of an electric
wire, he can tighten all the brakes in
a second. It has been proved upon
the Strasburg and Paris line, with
trains going at eighty, ninety and
even ninety-five kilometres an hour,
this method will bring the train to a 1
stop within a distance of two or three
hundred yards, whereas the old me?
thod required twelve hundred yards |
to stop a train going at such a speed.
The electric brake is also in use in
Belgium A kilometre is about 3,280
feet A distance of ninety kilometres
is, therefore, about fifty-six miles.

students are not from the Southern
States alone, but many come from

CHICKEN HATCHET) BY A WOMAN.
The Weston Herald says that a negro
woman of Weston, Lewis County,
West Virginia, hatched a chicken by
keeping the egg warm in her bosom,
and the little chick follows after her
as if it understood the cluck. The
question for discussion is, which is

EXTRAORDINARY DOUBLE APPARI?
TION OP LIVING PERSONS.-Some two
weeks since, a young lady of this
city, whoso father is engaged in mer?
cantile business here, awoke from a
sleep, feelings distressed and alarmed
from the effects of an unpleasant
dream. The gas-light was burning, j
but had been turned down to tho
closest point, thus making a dim
light in the room, and rendering por?
tions of iL almost dark. Soon after
awaking, the yonug lady's attention
was attracted by the well-defined
figure of a lady of her acquaintance
moving from the door, rome ten feet
from the foot of her bed, toward it.
Impulsively, she called tho figure by
name, on the instant forgetting the
improbability of the friend being in
the house, and the fact that she was
not a resident of the city, but resided
in St. Louis. Soon, however, all
this recurred to her, and the figure
already neared tho now alarmed girl.
The form and features were perfct
and distinct, the expression one of
cheering greeting, and as it approach?
ed closer and closer to her side, it
became dimmer and dimmer, and
finally disappeared entirely, when it
had advanced to about half the length
of the bed. The nervousness induced
by the incident, naturally enough,
induced the young lady to arouse the
family, who ascribed the matter to
excited imaginings. But there is a
singular sequel. She had forebod?
ings, despite all that was said to calm
them, and the next day wrote her
friet 4 Retailing the incident. An
auswtrr *w?s promptly received, an?
nouncing the good health of the
writer, and the fact that, on the same
night and at the same hour, she had
been visited in precisely the same
manner by the semblance of her
friend in Albany, and been alarmed
thereby, lest it was the forerunner of
evil. The mutual revelation was a
relief to both. The circumstance, we
think, has few ii* any parallels, and
can partially be ascribed to fche love
the two girls have for each^ther,
and of active nervous temperaments.
But as to an entirely satisfactory ex?
planation of it, none can be given.
O CTR AG ES IN TENNESSEE.-The
Nashville papers are full of news
items pointing to great social disturb?
ances and lawlessness throughout Ten?
nessee. In Fayetteville, a lady was
dragged from her horse and horribly
treated by some unknown person. In
Chattanooga, a white girl was shot
while cooking supper in one of the
camps. In the Jackson Whig, of the
10th instant, we also find the follow?
ing: ''On hxst Saturday night, al
negro staggered^ up to Mr. John Fry I
and told him that he was stabbed to |
the heart, and fell dead. It is not
known who did the deed. We learn
ed on yesterday of another murder,
where a negro boy was hocked in the
head by another negro, and instantly
PROSPECTS IN FAIRFIELI>. -The
Winnsboro News says:
In this District, preparations are
making for a very huge cotton crop.
So far, the main source of labor se?
cured are the freedmen. One advan?
tage of the present over the former
system of labor is that planters can
select their employees, and we have
heard some cotton growers say that
they had made good selections. Al?
most every one has an entirely differ?
ent corps of workmen from those
that belonged to him before emanci?
pation. In some few cases we have
heard of, the original hands are re?
maining with their former masters.
Too GOOD TO BE LOST.-When
General Butler was recalled from the
Department of the Gulf, and super?
seded by General Banks in the com?
mand of New Orleans, the Mayor's
office was tendered to him to take his
conge of such persons as felt desirous
of paying their respects previous to
his departure. As may be supposed,
there was a rough gathering of the
lower orders, male, female and juve?
nile, and among them several Hiber?
nian ladies, with their unwashed ba?
bies, who came to shake hands with
the General. One Irish woman hand?
ed her baby for a kiss, and taking the
General by the hai:d, addressed him
j as follows:
I "Good-bye, General; I'll say this
j for ye-that ye never stole anything
j from me. Good-bye, General."
"BLESS GOD, IF THLS AIN'T MASS
1 JEFF."-A colored man, a true and
' faithful servant, now in the service of
Capt. Thomas Jett, an old and es?
teemed citizen of this County, came
1 into our office yesterday, to get Capt.
1 Jett's papers. In looking around, he
espied a picture of Colonel Jefferson
. Davis hanging on our walls. He
. walked up to it, and exclaimed,
"Bless God, if this ain't Mass Jeff."
Upoi inquiry, we learned that the
man had formerly belonged to Mr.
! Laughlin, a connection of tl e Davis
family, and knew Mr. Davis well. He
left our office with tears in his. eyes.

1 MILITARY ARRESTS.-On last Friday
morning, a detachment of cavalry
arrived in our village from Augusta,
with them Mr. Wilson L.
Coleman, of this District, who had
been arrested some ten days previous,
and a Mr. Powell, from near Ham?
burg, also under arrest. This detach?
ment went into camp at the Fair
Ground, near the village, and since
then, they have arrested Gen. M. W.
Gary, S. B. Griffin. Esq.. Jesse Go
million, Emsley Lott, Julius Day and
son, James Day, Capt. James Mitch?
ell and David Strother. All of the
above-mentioned gentlemen, we un?
derstand, with the exception of the
four latter, left here for Columbia
under guard, on Sunday night last.
Why they were arrested, is beyond
our conjecture, for they are well
known citizens, and have ever been
esteemed honorable gentlemen-men
incapable of intentionally doing
ought that would blemish the cha?
racter or in the least affect the true
dignity of the good citizen and per?
fect gentleman. Feeling satisfied
that these gentlemen will be able
speedily to exculpate themselves from
the charges, whatever they are, under
which they were arrested, we hope
very soon to welcome them all home
A son of V. A Healong was also
arrested one day last week, and sent
to Columbia.-Edgefield Advertiser.
PROSPERITY OF NEW ORLEANS. -The
following, which we clip from the
True Delta, shows that New Orleans
bids fair soon to rival New York in
The inevitable business prosperity
which awaits New Orleans has not
escaped the heaviest of the New York
capitalists and merchants. As our
readers have been informed, Mr. A.
T. Stewart and Messrs. Mellen, Claf
fiu & Co. have purchased sites on
Caual street, where they intend erect?
ing magnificent stores. The place
contended for by both parties-the
Christ Church property-was finally
obtained by the latter fir for, we
learn, the sum of $160,000. Mr.
Stewart thereupon purchased tho en?
tire block bounded by Canal, Com?
mon, Rampart and Basin streets, and
is to erect a large block on the spot
where the rows of one-story brick
houses now stand. The building will
be occupied as a dry goods store, and
up stairs a magnificent public hall
will be arranged and elegantly fitted
up. Such is the programme as stated
to us. We wish the efforts of all who
invest their capital in our city to be
crowned with success.
THE BALTIMORE FAIR.-The great
fair for the benefit of the poor of the

auspices of a large number of the be?

Maryland Institute, on the first Mon?
day m' April. Contributions are being
made on a most liberal scale, espe?
cially by merchants throughout the
North. Mr. A. T. Stewart alone has
given thousands of dollars worth of
goods. Some aid, as we learn from
a recent article in the London Times,
may also be expected from England.
The fair will be kept up for ten
days, and it is behoved that the re- j
ceipts will be between $75,000 and
In aid of the fair, and during its
progress, a series of dramatic enter?
tainments will be given at Concordia
Opera House, Baltimore, by the Bal?
timore Amateur Dramatic Club, com?
posed of some of the first ladies and
gentlemen of Baltimore.

Died, afc her residence, in Richland Dis
Itrict, on the 6th instant, in tho sixty-first
year of her age, Mrs. SARAH E. MYERS,
daughter of the late Coi. Austin F. Peay,
of Fairfield-some years Senator from that
Dist '"t. *
It io rather for the purpose of paying a
tribute to the memory of a departed friend,
j than with the expectation of doing justice
I to the subject of this obituary, that wo
have taken our pen. The truly excellent
lady whose death our communication an?
nounces, was a person the value of whose
character all who are capable of appreciat?
ing worth most sensibly felt, but which it
would be difficult to describe. Her modesty
concealed much that would have com?
manded the highest admiration had it !
been brought more prominently to view.
Possessed of a discriminating mind, a re?
tentive memory, a refined and cultivated
taste, and blessed with a liberal education,
she added industry to the advantages
which nature and opportunity had given
her, and laid up a store of information,
which, combined with her gentleness of
manner, made her a bright ornament to
society and interesting on every subject on
which she conversed.
The face of Mrs. Myers was an index to
her noble character-it expressed intellect,
kindness and endurance. That she was
eminently possessed of these qualities, her
life fully prov ?d. She endured the severest
afflictions-not the least of which were
those peculiar to the times in which we
live-with tho fortitude and resignation of
a Christian martyr. Whatever was the
anguish of her heart, she bore her griefs
in such a manner as not to make others
partakers of them. Nurtured in the bosom
of the Episcopal Church, in 1857 she be?
came a member of its communion, which
she adorned through the last nine vears of
her life-enjoying on her death-bed the
unspeakable comforts of its holy religion.
A large circle of relations and friends
mourn the loss of this lovely Ir.dy; chiefly,
a famUy of five sons and three daugbti rs.
In answer to her earnest prayers, l.er
daughters were at her bed-side in her last
moments, to perform the kind offices of
filial love and to receive her dying benedic
