':? * '<jtH%9?t%%? FoU-Ftrnt Day. .
Tho 8tato Fair opened auspiciously on
yesterday. We observe that almost
every, part of the State is well repre?
sented at the capital on this occasion.
The prpiirammn for the day was carried
out. The display of horses, cows, goats,
sheep ,and ? a wino is satisfactory. Thc
cereal -department is well represented.
Tho ladies* department, as usual, evinces
much taste and skill. We noticed a num?
ber of agricultural implements. Tho
mcohanieal department is respectable.
Some very fino fowls and ducks were ex?
hibited. The fine arts were not iieglect
ed. ' Messrs. Weam Sc Hix show rare
specimens of their artistic excellence.
Some of our merchants have placed very
handsome articles on exhibition. The
band, composed of yoong men of this
city, under Mr. LyBrand's direction,
gave excellent music. The grounds pre?
sented b very lively appearance. The
trotting match excited much interest.
To-day,, it is thought. ths? the crowd will
be much larger, and the attractions will
certainly be greater.

TERRIFIC BOILER EXPLOSION.-One of j
tho boilers at the Charleston Steam Saw !
Mill, more generally known ns Stein
nieyer's Mill, exploded Monday morning, j
at about half-past 10 o'clock, completely
demolishing a two-story building and
causing other damage. One pie?e of the
boiler, about five feet long, was thrown
a distanco of about 150 yards, and par?
tially buried in a lot on the South side
of Beaufain street. Tho other ond,
about twenty feet long, was thrown about
forty feet, tearing its way through the
heavy brick-work surrounding it, cutting
away the massivo beams supporting a
largo water tank, destroying a brick
chimney seven feet square at its base and
eighty feet high, and throwing a large
boater upon tho engino which stood
within tho main building, damaging both
considerably. Tho only parsons injured
wero Norris Huggins,*a* colorod man.
who was at work iu tho room over tho
liro-house, sharpening saws, who was
very badly bruised and scalded, and ono
of the firemen; also a colored man, named
Grant, who was slightly scalded. There
is no clue whatever to the cause of the
accident. Mr. George E. Stoiumeyer
had tested tho water in tho boiler not
iivo minutes beforo tho explosion oc?
curred, and states that they were well
supplied, Tho loss occasioned by tho
accident will probably reach $3,500.
A Prussian hussar, getting his horse
$hod in a French smithy, was killed by a
blow of the blacksmith's hammer. His
comrades attacked tho smith, who was
shielded by tho villagers. A severe fight
and tho buming of tho village resulted.

MR. EDITOR: It is well understood in
commercial circles that tho determina?
tion of tho merchants to re?oive only
"bankable currency" for their wures, Arc,
has reference to the city money. The
action of the merchants has been caused
by the refusal of the banking institutions
to reoeive it ou deposit. At the present
time the circulation is very light, and
will, no doubt, be absorbed by tho pay?
ment of the taxes to be levied next
spring. If the circulation had been ns
largo as on former occasions, it would
have worked great inconvenience on the
laboring duse of thu community, as this
currency is used almost entirely in pay?
ment of tbe'laborer and mechanic. The
mercantile community deserve the thanks
of thc working-man for their action at a
time which leaves but little in the hands
of tho laboring classes. Tho merchants
are the most prompt tax-payers, aud, in
this view of the cuse., are" the best sup?
porters of the city finances, but self-pro?
tection requires that they should sell
their merchandize only fur such funds as
they can use to pay for them. Northern
creditors and railroad companies will not
I receive city money. MECHANIC.

COLUMDIA, S. C., November 8, 1870.
A meeting of the merchants of this
city was held this evening, in the Pal?
metto Engine Hall. On motion, Capt.
R. D. Seun was called to the Chair, and
Mr. S. C. Peixotto requested to act us
Secretary. The Chairman stated the
object of the meeting to be to consider
tho action necessary in reference to un
current mouey afloat, inasmuch as there
is a redundancy of tho same now iu
circulation, to the detriment of the mer?
cantile community. The following reso?
lution was offered aud unanimously
agreed lo :
Whereas the finances of the country
arc somewhat unsettled at present, and
the banks are refusing to receive any
other funds on deposit except United
States currency, we, the merchants of
tho city of Columbia, do hereby pledge
ourselves to refuse to receive any other
but bankable money for any goods, wares
or merchandize, or in any transaction of
a legitimate business character, until such
time as the banks will receive suoh other
issue as may be offered on deposit.

EXECTTION IN NORTH CAROLINA.-Wm.

yesterday, for an outrage on an old white
laily. Like all murderers hanged, ho
felt good, considered himself suro of
heaven, and consequently felt entitled to
advise and couusel all the people who
had como to see. A very vivid impres?

mitko a row about it, there staud tho
United States marines to see that the
negro is uot interfered with, and that he

BOUND TO DIE.-This is a fair speci?
men of the vengeance with which they
commit suicide in Kansas City. A man
in the third story of a hotel fastened one
end of a leather strap nround his neck,
and ticing tho other end to a bed post,
sat far out on the window sill and shot
himself. Tho wisdom of this plan is evi?
dent, from the fact that if the shot fail eil,
he would have fallon out of the window
and be hanged by the strap, and if the
strap broke, he would have gone to the
pavement and been a bad mess for the

two children died, had them salted down.
