To tlw Honorable County Board of Altiamttr
Gkntlemkn You axe aware that this
county has bad a claim for and on ac
count of swamp lands within her bound
aries, underact of Congress of September
z, lsou. auu acts amendatory thereof,
auu acts of the ueneral Assembly of this
State. One or two attempts have been
made lu the prosecution of this claim, but
nothing was ever accomplished. Judge
Olney entered into a contract with the
county in injO, tlie terms or which crave
him one-third of what he should be able
Being in business with Judirc Olney, I
had occasion to examine fully Into the
matters in nuestiou. auu lu tne course oi
Investigation I tpent several days at the
Auditors ouice at bpnngnclu, ami louuii
the .questlous sxceedlagly complicated.
Whatever Judge Olney did, uothlug
seems to have been accomplished In the
way of obtaining money, scrip, or any
thinirelse. 1 make this proposition to your honor-
ame oouy.uiat i win undertake tne pn
ecutlou of the claim, proceed with it with
out unnecessary delay and carry It
through, without auv exDense. cost or
risk whatever to the county, for oue-balf
ol whatever may be recovered.

Tho nbove proposition was accepted
by the Commissioners, aud the following
order entered of record :

nois donating the interests of the State
In swamp lands to the counties of the
State ; aud that he bo allowed to retain as
and for hit solo compensation one-halt

Thelalr and festival lieM on Thursday
and Friday nights, under tiro auspices of
the ladles of the Episcopal church, was
ono of the most enjoyable, as well as one
of the most profitable events of the kind
that has aver taken place la this city. On

the Ulnereut stands and tables, aad swell

fair are highly deserving of credit and
especially docs Mrs. Dr. Dunning, who
labored attidlously for the good of the
event, both night and day, deserve praise

The principal event of tbe entire affair
was tho balloting lor the quilt, manl'ac-
tured by the ladles' Sewing Society, and
presented (o the lady who received the
most votes as the most popular among
tbe people of tbe city, and for which
Mrs. Charles Galllgher nnd Ml?g Josle
Phillis were the candidates.
The struggle between the friends of
Mrs. Galllgher and Miss Phillis was an
imated and very exciting, though very
amuslnir, It being marked by the most
friendly feeling on both sides. It was a
race between the married and unmarried
ladies and gentlemen and the vim and de-
trrmluatlou displayed by the electioneer-
crs would hsve done credit to many of our
noted politicians. After a hard raw,
however, the younger portion of the
community proved too much
for their older adversaries, aud
when the votes were counted each one
of which threw twenty-five cents lato
the treasury fund of the church it was
found that Mias Phillis had carried off the
prize by a majority of one hundred and
nine votes against eighty-nine for Mrs.
Galllgher. The result drew forth many
congratulations to the fair victor from all
present, and she may well feel, as the un
doubtedly docs, highly compllineutcd, lu
wlunlng so beautiful a token .of friend
ship and esteem front so deserving a lady
ront so detenu
