All through, the 'country, from the
lakes t? tbs gal f, a ?d frot? the Atlas tio
fco the Pacific, Agrioaltaral and Meebani
oal Fairs are the order Of the day. They
are institutions in ibis laud. A few ge?
neral observations on thia subject VT i ll,
Uio?eipre, be. deemed appropriate. In
the r?ftt placer,' we' take ii that these State
Fair*sjgring iron? the laudable desire to
dsrrAbl* the material resource* bl a State.
Disconnected from party politics, they
arasdottbUess tbe offspring of that com
lltaBdabtS spirit which leads mon to im?
prove their own snbstanoe and thus aug?
ment the BUDStanoo of th? State. In the
second ?pisos,' as to tho mode of operating
these Fairs, wa ?re satisfied that the ma?
nagement should be in the hands of effi?
cient business men-mostly practical
agriculturists and mechanics, with A mix?
ture ot other employments. And we
further holdt that the Fairs should bo
made not only self-sustaining, but a
source of profit-which profit should go
to the improvement of the grounds and
the development of the scheme of the
sf an. '? tn the third place, as to the effect
of these Fairs, all will concedo at ence
that they are highly useful. They oxoite
a spirit of generous rivalry. They lead
to improved agricultural implomen ts; to
improved stock; to better farming; to
broader views; to scientific researches;
.to new fertilizers, and to a better agri?
cultural and mechanical system in gene?
ral. \ Nor are the moral results unimpor?
tant. These annual gatherings bring our
people together, and tend to bring about
that community of thoughf, feelings and
actions, which 'goes to make np State
pride and State strength and popular mo- ;
montura. Such are the considerations
which invest with interest and impor?
tance the Fair now in oar midst. Let
ns hope that it will bo fully sustaiued,
and made to fulfill its high mission. This
mission is to carry South Cnroliuu for
. ward to un era of solid prosperity. This
mission is to develop all our resources of
fertile soil nnd running streams aud
wooden and mineral wealth. Let the
good work go on. Let it enlist the ef?
forts and the sympathies of our mea and
women, and when tho next Fair shall
come round, let it bo shown prominently
to the world that South Carolina has
. taken np the industrial banner and in?
tends to carry it steadily forward. Thc
np-rooted palmetto of the State must be
planted ogaio, and the efforts of our peo?
ple must start it into n new and vigorous
Tb? Censas of Nine Coanttci.
"Corsair," tho ccrrespoudeut of the
Charleston News, shows some facts of
interest in connectiou with the census
returns in this Stato. It appears that
Anderson has 14,286 whites uud 8,587
colored; Chesterfield, 8,352 whites, 4,480
colored;Darlington, 8,432 whites, 11,929
colored; Horry, 5,561 whites, 2,398
colored; Lancaster, 6,054 whites, 5,743
colored; Marlboro, 5,373 whites, 7,061

colored; Spsrtanbnrg, 18,537 whiles,
8,882 &>ft>Ted;W?lliamsbnvg 5,187 whites,
10,802 colored. Ia Aaderson, Darling
. tou, Horry and Williamsburg, there has
beeu an increase, since I860, of tho
aggregate population. In the others
thoto has been a decrease. So that in
the nine Counties above named there has
been, since 1860, '? deoreaso of 1,941
.colored, and an iuciea.se of twenty-two
whites. When the full rot urns come in,

Tnfc VmoiNiA STATE FAIR.-We are
glad to learn that the Virginia Agricultu?
ral Fuir was a groat success. The. old
Virgioia spirit reappeared ou the field,
und the "Old Dominion" showed that
she intends to bc as great iu peace us she
was good in war. We aro gratified to find
that our sister State has entered so au?
spiciously upon tho present field of effi?
cient operations. Let every Southern
State go bravely to work to develop ?ts
resources. Let eaoh Stato acquire wealth,
and political power will bo found tho lo?
gical result of material strcugth.
Goon USE ron OLD CASTLES.-The
?aerease of crime ia Prussia is such that
there is no moro room ia the prisons,
and the government bas been obliged to
secare some old castles in which to ac?
commodate the surplus prisoners. Al?
though tho fact does not provo much iu
favor of the homo policy of Count Bis?
marck, still it is turning tho old estab?
lishments to good account. Tho spirits
of the old barons of the middle ages will
/doubtless be indignant at tho idea of
being thrown into tho company of cnl
'-.prits who have passed the ordeal of a
modern police court.

. Mu. Eprron: I regret to announce t$e
destraotion by fire of tho store o? Mosers.
Blnok Sc Osagbman, at Leesville, on th?
Columbia, and Augusta Railroad. Oh
the night of the 8th instant, at half-past
II o'clock, the members of the firm ol
J. S. Derrick Sc Go. and the family of
Mr.. D. C. Bhenlj were aroused from
their sleep by the distressing cry of fire.
All parties repaired to the scene of the
conflagration. Finding that the depot
was in danger by the fulling sparks, Mr.
John T. Dent- had a ladder placed
against it, whon somo colored men as?
cended to the roof, thereby saving it
from destraotion. We cannot conjecture,
the origin of the fire. Mr. Block's state?
ment is as follow? : I occupy a small
house- in the yard as my kitchen and
sleeping apartment. About half-post ll
o'clock, I was aroused from my sleep by
a noise in the front part of the store, as
the fulling of articles from the shelves,
Thinking that some one was trying to
force an entrance, I got up immediately,
and TTitli my gun Vf aiken to th? ntr?ro
which was 'bot a few steps, when I dis?
covered smoke issuing irom every cre?
vice. I immediately gavo the alarm. In
a few minutes, an explosion took place,
lifting the roof of the store, when every?
thing was wrapped in fiamos.
Tho loss is estimated at $8,000-unin?
sured. It in a sad casualty, and a heavy
loss, both to the owners and to Leesville,
which is considered by the traveling
public to be tho prettiest station on the
JUSTICE AND FAIR PLAY.

?^'?OB BOOK '^AIJL?.-By reference to
our advertising columns, it will be seen
that the iiiie??tu volume of Richard?
son's Law and the fourteenth volume of
Richardson's Equity Reports have just
been published by Messrs. Bryan &
Mc Carter. These two volumes close the
labors of tho old court of Sooth Caro?
lina. For the half of a century, the de?
cisions of this court have ranked high in
the estimation of (he beat lawyers of the
country. The names of DeSausaure and
Nott, Johnston and Harper, the Ward?
laws and O'Neal, Dunkin and others,
have ranked with the Kents and Story,
the Spencers and other Northern jurists.
Tho decisions embodied in the volumes
of the South Carolina Reports are of
high anthority everywhere, and are
sought for in the North and West, as
well as io the South, and of late orders
have been received by the publishers
evoo from England and California. It
is a matter of great moment to the bar
of South Carolina that many hundred
volumes of these valuable Reports (from
the year 1788) were saved from the flames
on tho night of the memorable 17th of
February, when BO many valuable libra?
ries, both public aud private, were de?
stroyed. Theao two last volumes will
complete the reporting labors of J. S.
G. Richardson, Esq., who for fifteen
years baa filled the office of reporter with
rare fidelity and ability. Let us hope
that the mantle, both of judges and re?
porter, will fall upon their successors.
Messrs. Duffie <fc Chapman have fur?

strained and nutiatnral picture of a
county family in England severnl years
ago, and consists chiefly of a string of
heterogeneous and improbable incidents
jumbled together in most inharmonious
confusion. In spite of tho long list of
the author's books quoted on tho title
page, wo cannot but think that he lins
decidedly mistaken his vocation. Of
course, opinions differ, nnd some readers1
may be gratified with the plot of tho
A new series of school-books has just
