Dr. A. M. Suider's dwelling was

SIGNS OF THE TIm7:S-^~
We see that Briggmann &

over the door of their handsome store
on Mcroncya old corner, the sign
looks well, but does not look half as
well as the stock inside, or one quar

load up with their fall stock as they
expect to do pretty soon now. David

EXCITEMENT IN NEW YORK?
'We are ^ informed : by n reliable
gentleman,, that: there is n nervous,
and unsteady feeding, caused in the
New York markets, on account of the
heavy purchases being made by our
"mutual friend*' Jno. M. Dnnner. who
is buying a fufl strjuk for Mr. CJco. II.
CornelsOn.' 'il ls bad enough' for Mr.
Cornclsoni. to. cxcjte the .. people of
Onihgoburg county, by his handsome
display of stock, and low prices, but
to 'iend Donner on to stir up the New
Yorkers is very reprehensible.
AVe publish to-day n ticket for
Mayor and Aldermen that we cordi
ally rocominoud to the favor of our
fellow-citizens. The gentlemen are
all too well known, to require any
praise at.our hands, upright, Hobest;
sober and .successful business men,
they must make good officers if elec
ted. They |ia.ve done a great deal to
build up the tow:', nnd it would be n
graceful acknowledgment of the fact,
to jmt the-care of the town in their
bands for the next two years.
Is it not about t-inic, that the Town
Council began to look after the miser
able condition of the sidewalks from
Court house square down. Lumber,
bricks, old iron, piles of dirt, and n
variety of other matter obstruct the
way. And now that the business sea
son is -opening, foot passengers want a
clear road to travel over, as it is, you
have to climb overn pile ol dirt, twist
your ankle in going through a lot of
brickbats, stop on a pi^cc of hoop that
jumps tip and hits you on the shin,
and then he cure..'til tlmt you do not
fall over u piece of timber. Why arc
these things thus?
CO CUT UO CSE?
At n meeting-of the* County Com
missioners held on Monday last., it
was determined to front the new
Court House; oa Main,-or | Kussel I
street. We congratulate the Com
missioners on their good taste, and the
wisdom of'their choice. In that posi
tion it, will not only show off to much
better advantage, but will be far more
convenient to all parties having busi
ness there, tho matter being now de
cided, we hope that the contractors
will push on the work ns rapidly as
possible. Orangcburg needs this
building badly, and the citizens are
impatient tosco the work completed.
A match was made tip on Monday
last, between "Mollie Darling" and
the "Orangcburg Maid" fa trot from
Engine house to rail road and up the
new back street to Engine house again,
the race was pretty close until towards
the home stretch, then Mollie's driver
threw out his tobacco, gave a war
whoop,and straightened upon the lines,
tho Dulling came in just oue minute,
thirteen and a quarter seconds ahead
of the Maid, If there is any last
horse around this neighborhood, Mol?
lie would like to interview he, she or
it. If Bonner had time to bring
Dexter down here we believe Mollie's
owner would trot her against him.
Two colored men, January Evans
and Harvey Cousar, on Fry & Kce lib's
turpentine farm, about five miles frcm
this place, between whom there had
been ill blood for tomcttriio past, bad
an encounter on Saturday night Inst,
which resulted in the dealli of Janua
ry Evans, who was stabbed five times
by Cousar. It is said that January
and another, had sworn to kill Cousar,
and had hunted him up for that pur
pose, and Oousar in defending himself
inflicted the wounds. Ho fled, and
has not been yet arrested. Cause of
all ibis mischief, "woman." Wo get
the above facts from Coroner Ford

Cannot the Town Marshal put a
stop to this nuisance of horses and
mules occupying the sidewalks ? day
after day numbers of them are stretch
ed ncrus'i it, and passers by, particu
larly Indies and children, are com
pel led to resort to the street to get
around. There is au ordinance we
believe, forbidding horses being car
ried on the s/dewalks, and there npr
pears very little difference between
putting a horse there intentionally,
and tying him just on the edge nnd
allowing him to go o'i himself. The
ladies declare that the other half of
humanity shall not vote for this
Council again; unless this thing is

We h?Ul the pleasure on Thursday
of .-haking a "howdio do" with two of
our townsmen who have for the past
month, been enjoy'ng the various
pleasures of "a trip North." Col. W.
J. DcTrcvillc comes back with every
evidence of having been well fed, and
carefully looked after. If we were in
his place we would spend "a month
North" every week or two. Mr. C.
B. Glover also puts in an appearance,
and judging from bis "keltcr" we
don't know but what he ought to do
the same thing, he looks as if he was
just in trim to ruu that office of his,
und we would not fall into his clutches
now for all the snakes in Ireland.
We give th:m a warm welcome home.
The Oranges have challenged the
Athletics, of Aikcn, to a trial game,
which has 1 ecn accepted, and it will
be played on the grounds of the
Oranges at this place; on Tuesday
next. Success to our boys. This is
the last game the Oranges propose to
play this season and we hope they
may retire victors.
\Yc d'so learn that the Union Club
from the neighborhood of Easterlies
Mills have challenged a "catch nine"
from this place, and thai Ute trial of
skill will take place here on Thurs
day next. Almost all of our Drange
burg players are good, and while we
do not know who our nine are, we
expect a good account from them.

HOARD OF EXAMINERS?
The County Board of Examiners,
held a meeting here on Monday las?,
to examine parties applying for the
positions of teachers. We learn that
the examination was very rigid, and
that while over fifty applicants were
examined, a great many, warned by the
? diu res of those who had gone before,
quietly took the back track for home
to hunt up their old school hooks from
whith they had formerly gleaned their
knowledge of Pntholognomy, Astron
omy, Quantification Mineralization
Wo do not mean to poke fun at the
Board, they did their work well and
thoroughly, nnd many applicants went
off, believing that to be a teacher
now, they were required to know a
little more than they bad dreamed of
in their Philosophy. This is, as it
aught to be.
E'cven enthusiasticsportstnen, with
sixteen dogs, started out a few nights
since for a good old fashioned coon
hunt in the river swamp. Wearily
they trudged along, tho night was
passing rapidly away, and no sight or
smell of coon, to cheer either'men or
dogs. They had wandered far into
the swamp, and began to feel home
sick, when suddenly the well known
yelp was heard, and sure enough the
whole pack had n big coon safely
treed, but how to gel him out? the
trco was an enormous ouc, but they
buckled loo at it with their axe, and
after an hours hard work down it
came, and every one rushed for the
coon, he was not however tobeliad that
way, and made off, rapidly followed
by men and dogs. In a few minutes
after, that coon was entirely uninter
esting to that party, for eleven men
and sixteen dogs were fighting mud
nnd water and each other, in a large
gully into which they had fallen, fin
ally they got out, some on one side,
some on the other, some nil about,
each one started in a separate direc
tion for home. One of the party
found his way there, and sent a rescu
ing party out with lanterns to hunt
up the rest. All got home before day
light, but if you say "coon" to one ofj
them now look out for "assault and
?STATION NO. 2.
At a regular meeting held at this
Stntion President Gnberlunzic took
the chair, and sat down remarking
"ough." The Secretary tried to
sharpen his wits nnd his pencil, when
the old captain rose majestically, and
remarked ;n a very incoherent ramb
ling, and highfuluting way, that
Fritz wanted to be steward of this
club, so they let Fritz be. The Capt
ain continuing in his usual lucid and
incomprehensible style, proposed the
initiation of new members, "Smiling
Gus" in his customary idiotic way
tried to dip in here, but Gubcrlunzic
squashed him and "Smiley" hung him
self up to a limb of a scrub oak to lis
ten, (Fritzand "Sandhnss" now put in
like the old Scratch v/ns af'cr them,
and would hold to the one who talked
Last, Fritz beat, butSandhass was not
taken, he can be . nsily found when
wanted. Every body took sadawatcr,
and the meeting began again) the
Swede arose to explain, but somebody
pushed him, and he sat down in the
grass, and wiped his eyes, and blew
nose. The President then sent nil'a
committee of three to arrange for the
initiation ol the candidates, while they
were gone Smiley ran away with the
keg of sudawoter, caught a subl-j
gentleman, persuaded him to get on
all fours, put the keg on his back, and
dispensed the sparkling fluid. The
committee cn;nc out of the woods, the
"stand" got up, louk a glass, wiped his
mouth on his slcave and walked off,
committee reported ducking candi
dates, they objected, nnd other arrange
incuts were made. Fritz then picked
up the Swede and started for tho pond,
Swede .objected, and both laid down
in a gully. The President jumped out
of his chair, and Sand bass jumped in
it, cu led the meeting to order and
held the club spell bound for half
hour, with one of hi* usual charmingly
imbecile, and sweetly ambiguous
spcachcR, delivered in his well known
uninteresting way. Once the score
tnry suggested to "shut up," but every
body said hush?h-h, and he hushed,
them, the tall Yahoo said, now I dem
you keep still, and he kept still. At
the conclusion of the oration, several
remarks were made in high dutch, all
appropriate to the occasion, at least
the secretary thought so, but don't
understand dutch, then everybody
addressed the meeting in low English
and the secretary wrote with both
hands but could not keep up, then
Gabtrhiuzic j' rked Saudhass out of
the chair, and resumed, or tried to,
but Fritz, Saudhass and the tall Ya
hoo, laid out on the gras? and sang a
melting little piece of nursery Rhyme,
the club gavo them three cheers and
advised them to get up oil'the grass for
fear of cold (this wos sarcastic.) Busi
ness resumed. Candidate No. 1 was
asleep, and No. 2 was eating a piece
of bread ond ham, turned the wrong
way toward hiii'? Young Germany
said he wanted to go home, climbed
up in his buggie felt all over the dash
board for tho reins, and swore ho had
just harnessed the hoi so to that bug
gio, (then every body began to do some
thing and say something, somo talked
American, some German, some Swced
ish, some all sorts, wo repeated one of
Cicero's orations.) The club adjourn
cd at 4 o'clock subject to the call of
old Gaberlun/.ic. Arn JFVWl.
