Vo. 1.-The County anil Town of Newberry.
To ITS CITIZENS : We are always re?
joiced at seeing articles of a common sense
character, free from politics, free from preju?
dice, no matter by whom written as long as
they are calculated to inspire the people
with earnest hopes and buoyant feelings in
regard to the future of our common State.
We were glad, heartily so, to seo u writer
over tho signature of "Virgil" sometime
back, inditing a series of articles on the bu?
siness and business prospects of Columbia.
Wo bavo no objection to tho prosperity of
Columbia. Tho writer confines himself to
that one locality. But we, thank God, we
belong not to that class of narrow-raiuded
pint bottles of humanity, who, if a man
speaks up for his own immediate soctiou,
somewhat to tho exclusion of others, arc
ever ready and prompt to speak contempt?
uously of his efforts, to abuse his views, and
to criticise his motives all through the sheer?
est envy. We are not of that gonus; we bo
long to a progressive, liberal-minded ordei
of beings, who believe that if one portion o:
this State is improved, that advantages to i
greater or less extent will accrue to itt
length and broadtb. Like the circle of wavei
formed on a body of water by the droppiuf
of a pebble, and which continue to spreai
and spread uutil they reach tho farthes
shore, so, whatever benefits Columbia iu tin
way of business, will bo felt from the sea
board to the mountains, and Newberry wil
and must bo embraced within the circle of it
We go in not for tho few, nor for tb
greatest good to the greatest number, bu
the greatest good that oau result to all, mau
woman and child, irrespective of classes.
We would respectfully suggest to tin
people of Newberry to ask themselves, " Ar
you, as a people, collectively and individ
nally, doing the legitimate proportion of bu
?mess to which your position and facilitie
entitle you ? Are you doing all that lies ii
your power ? if not, bow aro things to b
recuperated, and eventually remedied ?
You must not as tho wagoner, when hi
wheels stuck in the mud, fall to praying t
Hercules to pull you out. No, you mus
put, manfully and earnestly, your shouldci
to the wheel. Grumbling and simply cal!
ing upon Providence is of no earthly usc
Providence only helps those who help then
selves. Yon must not sit down aud wee
over your losses, and see your populatio
and wealth depart; like men, you must ri
Bolut?ly seize upon the means within yoi:
reach, and win supremacy, because yo
have deserved it. There is no royal road t
wealth in these iron days-it comes froi
hard blows and ceaseless struggle.
We have no desire to recall painful rem
nioenoes. This is not tho place nor tho tin
to review the sad events of tho past. Tr?b
a disastrous war loft you with desolate mil
on every side; agriculture was puralizei
commerce languished; mechauics were witl
out employment; a well regulated labor ay
tem grown venerable in its usefulness, ax
its humane tendencies was suddenly an
violently destroyed, and tho public mit:
weighed down by a depression wit hoi
precedent in tho history of nations,
train of evils and difficulties, mournful ai
lamont able in their nature, bofel you, mo
serious than had ever afllicted a civilizi
Surveying this picture, muuy of yon sn
not at first, but ouly after tho passage of
few mouths tho truthfulness of your po:
tion, and that it waa your policy to ada
yourselves to tho circumstances of the timt
Obstinacy brought no consolation. St
neckedneas only increased tho pressure th
wa? urging on destruction. Maoy practici
sound-8onsed mon determined that wL
human energy and bum?.u industry had i
compliquai elsewhere, could be effect
hero. It was a commendable spirit.
We have hoard it remarked a tbousa:
times that the country was ruinod; we ha
been told that it was doomed-that all i
tempts tb bdild up the State or this Cone
would be useless. But these deolaratic
we View as Cassahdraiems. TL.ey do, i
tend to discourage us, and sho^?d not d
courage you or chango your doterminatic
No failures, however signal, should open
otherwise than to impress you with tho
same spirit of perseverance, that tho simple
spider aroused iu the bosom of a Bruce and
the necessity of the hour tell you to resolve
that in your determination and enterprise
iu restoring this County, there should be no
such word as "fail."
Wo Bay, without tho fear of contradiction
and in the spirit of prophecy, clear to sense
to be fulfilled, our firm and unshaken con?
viction is, no matter what may bo said to
the coutr.try, with a country 6o bountifully
blessed by Providence as is ours, is a geo?
graphical position without a rival in the
State, that neither previous desolation nor
despair, nor tho overthrow of your ancient
institutions, though they may retard you
Borne, can ever permanently arrest your on?
ward progress and future prosperity.
"Let us, then, be up and doing,
With a heart for any fate;
Still resolving, still pursuing,
Learn to labor and to wait."
Gen. Michler, Superintendent of Public
Buildings, on Friday last, made a requisi?
tion ou the Treasury Department for the
sum of ?25,000 for furnishing the Executive
Mansion, under tho sundry civil expenses
bill passed at tho late session of Congress.
It was decided that the appropriation waa
not available until tho 1st of July next,
whereupon the Secretary asked Congress to
make tho appropriation available at ouce,
whioh wns immediately doue.
Mr. Burliugame seems to bo very popular
in Paris. He is looked upon as beiug the
best authority there upon American mat?
ters. He is an enthusiast in his mission,
and does not disguiso his feelings as nu

calculated to carry the American institutions
and ideas into the Orient and to mako

In Syria, they fatten sheep by stufling

Globe Mutual Life Insurance Co., of N. T. |
CASH ASSETS JANUARY 1, I860, tl, 171,000.
Has been in operation hut lour years, during!
which time il has assured a larger amount than
any Company in tho United States, during a cor- I
responding period ol existence Ono of the chief
causes of its organization, was the forfeiture by
several Northern Companies of tho policies of I
Southerners, during tho war. The leading oflieers |
of this Company protested against this injustice,
and on its consummation, withdrew and orga?
nized tho "GLOBE MUTUAL," on principles moro
liberal and just than those yet adopted by any
other Insurance Company. In tho event of death
in battle or in a duel, tho equitable value of the
policy will be returned to the heirs. ALL other
Companies forfeit it. In case of suicide, tho
FULL Policy is paid. No restrictif.:: ou travel.
This Company has, in its ?uaranteo fund of I
$500,000, an element of streugth possessod by no
Other Company. It offers the entirely new feature
of Probability Endowment, which gives thc
largest possiblo sum for the premium paid. No
other Company possesses this feature. Insures
children of any age. In the moderation of its
premium rates, in tho variety of its tables, in its
dividends and in tho security offered insurers,
invites comparison with nnv other Company.

tOUXSEl, FOR THE CARELESS.-Thu
body is a machino, and carelessness in it? manage- I
ment in as sure to lead to evil result H ae careless-1
ness in the management of a steam engine. Yet )
tho last thing that most people think of is the !
protection of this delicate piece of the Creator's
handiwork from tho snbtle causos of dieease by j
which it is surrounded. It is no easy thing to re?
pair tho system when iu ruins; but there in no
difficulty in fortifying it against many of the dan?
gers to which it is exposed. Guard ayainst nervous
debility. At the first symptoms of this fore-runner
of more serious ailments, sustain the flagging
onorgioBoinature with HOSTETTER'S STOMACH
RITTERS. Take it regularly aud persistently,
until bodily vigor is thoroughly restored. It cre?
ates an appetite, promotes-or, it might as pro?
perly be said, compels-tho completo digestion of
tho food, regulates the secretivo action of tho
liver, tones and invigorates tho bowels, improves
the condition of tho blood, and gives firmness to
tho nerves. Upon a Bystcm thus strengthened
and regulated iu all its important functions, tho
fogs and exhalations of autumn, pregnant with
tho clements of intermittent and remittent fover,
can make littlo or no impression. "Whoever sup?
poses that fever and aguo ia an unavoidable evil in
certain districts, at this season of the year, is
egregiously mistaken. As effectually as a draught
of cold air is shut out by tho closing of a door,
thia complaint, and all disorders of a miasmatic
tvpo, may bo prevented by tho uso of tho BITTERS.
When sickness can be avoided by a means so safe
and simplo, is it not tho merest fatuity to neglect
tho profferod antidote? Regarded either as a pre?
ventive or a caro for dyspepsia, biliousness,
intermittent fever, nervous uisordera, general
debility, or constipation of tho bowels, this pure
vegetable preparation stands alone.
