tlon-Qen. Karl y, or Virginia.
The South Carolina Survivors' Asso?
ciation will meet this morning, at 10
o'olook, in the court houBe. As dele
gates have been appointed from most of
the Comities of the State, we have rea?
son to anticipate a large gathering.
That the meeting will be earnest? influ?
ential and moat intelligent, we feel sore.
In the evening the gallant old Virginian,
Gen. Jubal A. Early, will address the
association. We take special pleasure in
presenting to this State and this commu?
nity this distinguished and patriotic sol?
dier. Let bim, as ho oomes in oar
midst, be greeted with a warm reception;
let him, as he rises to address his old
comrades, be welcomed with a hearty
cheer. Gen. Early waa, prior to Virgi?
nia's act of secession, j a warm Union
man of the County of Franklin, in the
"Old Dominion." He held that seces?
sion was not the proper remedy for the
evils of which Virginia justly complained.
In the Virginia Convention, he opposed'
the withdrawal of his State from the
Union. When, however, Virginia de?
cided to secede, and passed her ordinance
of secession, Gen. Early acquiesced,
like the dutiful son that he was of the
mother of States, statesmen and soldiers.
He returned to his County. His people
sustained bim almost with entire unani?
mity. He raised a. regiment and began
his career as1 a military man. How gal?
lantly be I fought and how nobly ho en?
dured we need not here detail. His mi?
litary record is before the country.
When, the war ended, he wore the s tura
of a high general officer. Now, after a
lapse of more than six; years, he appears
in the capital of this State to address the
South Carolina survivors, many of whom
so long and so gallantly fought or bled
or suffered under his command. We
need say no more. All that is womanly
in woman, all that is manly in man, will
respond to the memories that he may
evoke ind io the aspirations that he may
Auxiliary Joint Stock Company?
We dos ire briefly to bring before the
people of tho State the proposition
adopted at the last meeting of the State
Agricultural and Mechanical Society.
The question arose-how shall we plact
the society upon a better and more progres?
sive basis? The answer waa and stands
By forming a joint stock company, auxili?
ary to tho present State Agricultural anc
In this way it is proposed to angmenl
the revenue derived from the preaenl
society, by so much as may bo d?riv?e
from the joint stock investment. In thu
woy it is believed that the success of om
great enterprise will be no longer be con
tingent upon accident or occasional em
barrassments. In this way it is believer!
that the society will be enabled to enlarge
its operations and make the appoint
mente of our fairs, and tho fairs them
selves, more worthy of our peoplo, anc
more in keeping with our just aspira
tiona. We trnst, therefore, that the joini
stock soheme will be promptly taken oj.
and endorsed by the whole State-fron
where the sea sparkles in the sunlight tc
where the mountains rise in grandeur
from Charleston to Ooonee, and fron
Horry to Abbeville. Let us, if wo can
enlist the wholo State in this grand in
dostrial enterprise of our annual contra
fair, which, getting its tributary stream:
from all quarters of Soath Carolina, abai
bend to the development of all tho re
sources we have of mind and mat*er.
The shares aro $10 each. Subsorip

the work go on, Let tho amount wantei

REPUDIATION, as the only means of redres
left to an outraged and plundered people
EXCITEMENT IN AIKEN.-We learnei
at a late hour last night that mach ex
oisemont had been caused in Aiken o:
account of the shooting of a young gen
tleman named Turner, by a mob o
negroes. Tamer was wounded in on
leg, whioh was afterwards amputated
From what we could gathor, tho negroe
thought that Tamer was the father o
the obild shot by a negro woman a sbor
time aioce, and who was herself shot b;
an unknown person shortly afterward?
The act was, therefore, apparently don
in revenge for ber death. Turner, how
ever, was not the father of the child.
THB COTTON OBOT OP MARION.-Th
Marion Crescent says: "From oonverso

to hope that the ootton crop of this yea
?lay reaoh two-thirds of an average."

numbera of people visited the fair
grounds. Thc crowd, though not quite
aa large aa on wednesday, waa still very
great. The ladies turned out in great
numbera, attracted by the desire to wit?
ness the feats of horsemanship which
were in anticipation.
The first matter of interest was the
ploughing match. This attracted all the
farmers and planters, who are judges of
this important implement, and richly
were they repaid for the trouble. About
twenty-five different varieties of plows
were entered, embraoing every conceiva?
ble variety and improvement. The work
performed gave general satisfaction,
showing that perfection had almost been
reached in plows. Agriculturists derived
many valuable bints, and will carry home
with them some new ideas upon (he plow
The next matter of interest was the
awards of superiority to the oattle and
led horses. Tbe former were visited
at the stalls, and critically examined by
competent judges, who found no little
difficulty in coining tb a decision, where
all are so excellent. Among the finest
of the oattle we notioed the following:
Devon boll, three years old, entered by
E. S. Irvin, Greenville.

old, W. H. Framer, Edgefield.

There were others, bnt the above will

A match game of base ball was played
between the Palmettoes, of this oily, and
the Mutuals, of the garrison. The score
stood: Mutuals, 28; Palmettoes, 5; five
innings; four innings to be played to-day.
At 12 o'clock preoisely, notwithstand?
ing tho rain which oommenoed falling
gently, tho knights who had entered for
tbe sport of riding at tbe ring took thoir
positions. There were fifteen in all,
under command of Col. A. C. Haskell.
Several of the riders appeared in cos?
tume-one representing a zouave, an?
other tho black knight, and a third with
a full Confed?rate uniform, with trim?
mings and bars of a captain of artillery.
As maj be expeoted^ his appearance
elicited no little applause, and every one
wished in bis heart, if he did not express
it with his lips, that the gray would win
the day. The ridiug was very spirited
and displayed somo daring horseman
ship. Throe rings wero suspended from
mgm n ... ,, ,? . , ., , . , f .i^glfly^-w^vj^
sue? stretched eoross tb? track, ?bout
fifty feet apart. The rider, with fauoo in
1 haad, came rashing ?long at the loll
! speed of bis horse, and attempted to
carry off each of the rings, whtoh wera
not more than two iuohea in diameter,
apon the point of his lance, ile who
faded in carrying off any was greeted
with no applause; bat tho one who car?
ried off one, two or three rings, as he
rushed madly along, was greeted with
deafening cheers from the excited spec?
tators. After each rider had made three
attempts, in turn, to carry off the rings,
the result waa announced by the judges.
The first four, who alone were entitled to
receive prizes, were first and second A.
O. Hammitt, of Darlington, and M. ul.
Buford, of Newberry, tie; and third and
fourth, A. B. Joiner and J. F. Muldrow.
The first two entered the lints to decide
the championship. M. M. Buford, the
zouave knight, carried two rings, i'hun
followed A. O. Hammitt, the Confede?
rate oaptain, carrying away two rings
also, thus making another tie. Zouave
aiade another start, and carried off two
rings again, when on rushed the Con?
federate captain, carrying the three
rings upon the point of his lance, amid
vocif?rons cheering. The old gray was
once more victorious. Tbe prizes were
not distributed, bat will be to-morrow,
except a huge tin cup to Mr. Li. Levy,
for the poorest success. Mr. Levy re?
ceived his hard-earned prize amidst the
congratulations of his friends, and wore
it around his neck for the balance of the
day. Under the judicious management
of Colonel Haskell, this entertainment
passed off without anything ooourriug to
mar the pleasure of the occasion, and
every person expressed himself as highly
pleased wit h the sport and its result.
The drizzling rain drove all the ladies
and many of the gentlemen into the
buildings, which became so densely
packed as to render locomotion almost
impossible, but good humor and gayety
prevailed on every bund. Merry peals of
laughter rang out from happy heurts, and
pleasant conversation among mutual
friends whiled away the hours only too
The Bazaar, as usual, was the centre
of attraction. The Indies seemed to
have improved upon thejr experience of
the previous days, as their dinners aro
better and better every day. We do not

upon them. If anyoody does not be?
lieve what we Bay, let them order a din?
