The Barbecue at Prcspeci. j
According to previous announcement, a j
special train left Pulaski, at about nine j
o'clock Thursday morning last, for Pros
pect, bearing ilia .Pulaski Division and nu
merous l.idies ind gentlemen of th'i3 vicini
ty, Vj j An in the gr-tnd temperance jubilee
at that place, and to partake of tho rich
barbecue prepared for the occasion.
The train, under the conductorship of
Mr. Stevenson and Capt. Abe Frizzell,
without accident or nota-worthy incident,
arrived at Prospect at about 10 o'clock,
when the Pulaski Division, by invitation,
repaired to th hall of Prospect Division and
joined them in the march to the grounds
selected for the occasion.
1 The speakers stand, surrounded by com
fortable 6eats for the division, and the la
dies, was located upon the hill half a mile
south of the station and about one hundred
yards east of the railroad, in a beautiful
grove of forest trees.
The dfcercises commenced by singing the
opening ode, and prayer by the Rev. Mr.
Brown. Rev. John A. Thompson, io beh. 1
of Prospect Division, welcomed the broth
ers of Pulaski Division, f hich was respon
ded to by W. P., Wm. II. McCallum, in be
half of his brothers,
Mr. Thompson then led off in a beautiful
and impressive address, a synopsis of
which, nor none of the speeches delivered,
will we attempt to give, as they were nu
merous and too lengthy for our limited
epace. After the firfct addresa, which last
ed about an hour, Mr. Jno. Meadows deliv
ered a short but pithy extemporaneous ar
gument in behalf of the cause.
Then followed Rev. Mr. Brown, who
seemed perfectly at home on the 6tand.
Then our young friend Hawkins West
moreland took the stand, who displayed
great powers of oratory, both argumenta
tive and humo?oU9, After which, that old
champion of every good cause, Rev. W. G.
Hensley, was called up and entertained the
audience until dinner was announced, when
the Divisions formed into procession snd
led off to the tables, which were erected in
the shade close to. the railroad and n ar a
We shall not attempt to do justice to the
liberality and good taste of our Prospect
friends-by-a description of the splendid
USrbecue spread before us. Suffice it to
siy, a euper-abuDdance of every thing
which that fertile country can produce and
served in the very bsst style known to the
culinary art was spread before the immense
assemblage, and the host system and order
prevailed throughout tho feast.
ton, f-hoat, ham, chicken, vegetables of all
kinds, and desert ia great profusion and
variety, continued to be placed ou the
groaning tables as fast as they were clear
ed, and if any were Dot satisfied it wae
clearly their own fault.
After the feast, the crowd re-assembled
at. the $tand and were favored with one or
more addresses, but as this reporter had
found a delightful seat in the shade with
some of the fair ones, for which the Pros
pect neighborhood is famous, further pro
ceedings at the stand were not noted. At
4 o'clock, the unwelcome toot of the Rail
road whisila reminded us that the time for
our return bad arrived, and reluetantly the
excursionists from this locality bid farewell
to tiieir hospitable frieuds of Proapect, and
re-embarked for home, where we arrived
about G o'clock.
Again in., behalf of the Pulaski Division,
and expressing the sentiment of the visitors
from this place, wo return thai.k3 to the
fair and hospitable ladies and liberal heart
ed gentlemeu of the Prospect vicinity for
their kindness and hospitality on this occa
sion. The his.68 meeting Saturday will be com
posed of men from every district, represent
ing the sentiment aud wishes of their res
pective neighborhoods, and we suggest
that it would be an appropriate time and
place to adopt a memoiial to the Legisla
ture, respectful but determined in its tenor,
asking, in the name of the peonle, a call for
a State Convention, or a repeal of the odious
franchise laws of the State. We believe
that buch an appeal, coupled with the known
determination of the people to resist Brown
low's encroachment in the future, will have
a salutary effect. Let U3 try it.
An Item or much lNTEKfc6T to All. The Ur.i-
tod States Congress hiis authorized Messrs. J. I
Uromgoole & Co., regular practicing physicians. of
Memphis, Tcnn., to prescribu for tho various dis
eases of the country, and after a long bedside expe
rience thor now offer tho public a class of Family
Medicines winch for merit, beauty and cheapnes?,
cannot be excelled on this continent. These medi
chics are neither seerets nor paUinls, and a physi
cians everywhere use them iu their practice they
immediately command public esteem and ccnfi.lmcc.
They are highly eulogized, sell rapidly at all points,
and we eurr estly advise every family to buy a sup
ply of th valuable remedies. See advertisement
in another column, beaded "Great Southora Pre
paration." Numerous anonymous letters have been
revived through the Columbia post-ofHce
within the past few days addressed to vari-
j ou9cilizene, and containing fiendish threats
of burning the town. Great excitement
prevails, and should such a calamity occur
the people are firmly resolved to try the
virtues of hemp, steel, and lead as antidotes
to negr- inceudiarism.

Giles County Eesponds.
The citizens of Giles will meet those of
Lawrence and Wayne counties at Boden-
hauler's mills, on Thursday 23d inst., io

Railroad from here to La wrence and Wiyne.
Addresses mny be expected from Gen Brown
Maj. Jones, Gen. Gordon, Col. Rose, Hon.
J. P. C. Reed, Jno. A. Tinnon, and distin
guished orators from Lawrence and Wayne.
A preliminary survey of the road will be
made previous to that time by Mr. T. M
Topp, Gen. Geo. W. Gordon and assis
tants, and a report made at this meeting.
We hope Pulaski will be fully represent
ed in this meeting, as her interests are to
be greatly afi'ected in the location of the ter
minus of this road.
A Negro Butchery.
Three Men Killed tf Negroes.
On Sunday night, two or ree negroes
entered a room in which a young man nam
ed Fi eeland was sleeping, oa the farm of
his father, James Freeland, eome three
miles from Columbia, and before he could
make any resistance, buried their knives in
his throat, culling it from ear to ear, and
then-proceeded to mutilate his body in a
most horrible x manner, afterwards escapes-
Monday morning a negro man and a ne
gro woman were arrested and brought to
Columbia, on charge of having murdered
young Freeland. The woman ,is said to
have been lodged ia jail, but her accom
plice was immediately seized by a party of
white men, who carried him out of the
place and are believed to have lyDched him
somewhere in the woods not far from town.
One of the negroes supposed to have been
concerned in the murder of young Freeland
is still at large.
Two other white men, it is alleged, have
been similarly murdered since- Sunday
J. L. Peters, music "publisher, .'New

the ballad line and will soon be popular.

9 The Glee Hive contains fourteen pages of

glees, trios, quartettes, opera choruses for

niments for the piano. Price $3.
We wouldn't be without the "Parlor

the best writers, arranged for flute and vi
olin, with piano accompaniment. It is a

lin player should subscribe for it. Price
