A Centennial Vision.
For the benefit of nu anxious pub
lic, I> George Washington Greene,
depose and state As follows: That,
on tho night of the 22d of February
last) I nttendcd n meeting of the mem
bers of the Utopinn Club, and thnt
there and then many pntriotic speeches
were made and toasts drank and the
'rosy* circulated freely.
Lato in the evening a gentleman,
evidently thoroughly acquainted with
geography, arose and slightly leaning
upon the back of his chair, to add to
the grace of his posture, proposed, in a
voice husky with emotion, 'The Uni
ted Stntcs of America?bounded on
the North by Canada; on the South
by the Gulf of Mexico; on the Fast by
the Atlantic, and on the West by the
Pacific Ocean.' And that this .stu
pendous toast was received with great
enthusiasm by the club, nnd that
ever}* glass was instantly emptied and
every voice raised in acclamation.
That immediately thereafter a mem
ber with a bald head and philosophi
cal face, and whose iuitials arc G. W.
G., arose and said; 'Gcntle-meu and
U-lophinns, I endorse the sentiments
of the preceding toaster, but, in my
opinion, his toast was noi sufficiently
buttered; iu fact he hits confined our
great country within .such narrow
limits that 1 already begin to feel
cramped lor room, and gcn-tle-men;
with your permission I propose an
amenclmert/ This was greeted with
prolonged applause and cries of 'The
amcti'dmen tP 'Give us more!' etc.
The sage of the Utopian then pro
ceeded : 'The United States of Aineri
ca; bound cd on ,hc North b}' the Nortli j
Pole, on the South by the euth Pole;
on the Fast by the Rising, and on the
West by the Setting Sun i V
That tre ri ndeus excitement cn
su. d, nnd that the members, ail that
were able, arose and gave three I imes
thrcc, nnd that ore the echoes had ex
pired, a young and ambitious man
who had apparently been suffering
from colic or a desire to be heard,
leaning across the middle of the table,
ga/.ed into vacancy, and addressed it
thus, while all the eyes that were not
dosed in meditation were aimed at
'Gentlemen, with all deference to
the distin-guished (.hie) Utopians who
have spoken, I must (hie) express
myself dissatisfied. In /act. no Ameri
can citir.cn has ever (hie), in my opin
ion, properly eonccived the extent of
hia country, and therefore I (hie) feel
it my duty to propose an amendment
to the last!!' With strong emphasis,
and in the midst of complete silence
?the Utopians being filled with awe
at the very thought of the unknown
vastness of their land?Gentlemen !'
then recommenced the young man,
speaking slowly and solemnly, an d
heightening the effects of his words
by a peculiar sound like the feeble
popping of a cork?a sound which, I
confess, he emitted with great frequ
eucj' and skill, 'our magnificent coun
try is bounded on the north by (hie)
the Au-ro-ra Borca?s, on tho south
by the (hie) processions of the Equi
nox-cs, on the cast by Ancient (hie)
Chaos, and on the west by the Day of
Judgment! !!' 'That then no sound
was heard, other than a feeble pop
ping of corks by several members, and
several other members were so much
overcome by tho sublime nature of the
boundary that they Rank exhausted
beneath the table; others wcro uncon
scious in their scats. That then the
deponent arose io depart, but even'he
staggered under the awful character
of that boundary as ho wended his
way to his hotel on Union Square,
while the hour of twelve boomed forth
from St. George's.
And further, that ho was much sur
prised at beholding a throng of men
and boys about the steps of tho hotel,
apparently deeply interested in the
remarks of a noble looking man, who
spoke with a lisping sound in conse
quence of the loss of 801110 of his tront
teeth, and whose form was clad in the
uniform of a general officer of the last
Approaching, I recognized the
Father of our Country, and instinc
tively glancing towards his equestrian
statue at the southern end of the
square, I saw that the horse was .rider
less. That then I was deeply impress
ed by the grandeur of the scene, the
beauty of the clear winter night and
tho delicate moral lesson conveyed by
the moon, which like a faithful deb
tor, was paying back its borrowed
silver to the earth. No sound broke
tho stillness but tho strong, sad voice
of George Washinton speakiog these
'Fellow countrymon, I am permit
ted to revisit the scones of my earthly
greatness. Again 1 am permitted to
gaze upon your vast metrcpolis, ah,
how changed from what I knew it;
but as I gaze a feeling of snduoss fills
me, for I know, though you have
many advantages over my contempor
aries, though you are more than forty
millions, though the natural sciences
light you on your road to wealth and
power, though your marvelous inven
tions, your railroads and steamboals,
your sewing machines and telegraph
tuny save you labor and comfort your
existence, your breach-loaders and
rifled cannon make you feared iu war;
still I would not I e happy among
you. I should be despised by your
business, laughed at by your politi
cians and wondered at by your pub
lie because?/ aamot tell a lie."
Theu I thought his earnest eyes
rested upon me. I attempted to as
cend the steps to tako the General by
the hand and give him my card, when
a sudden discharge of fireworks from
the gaslights at the sides of entrance
startled me and I sat down and closed
When I opened them George was
on his bronze horse and the crowd had
resolved itself into a policeman who
assisted ine into the hotel. ?,

Train od Journalist,
Mr. A. Marschalk, who is about to
start a newspaper at Cartersvillc, call
ed the Planter's Advocate, was literally
born in n printing office and cradled
on an old-fashioned press. Ho told
us the tale as related to him by his
parents. He is a man near fifty years
of age, an excellent and well educated
printer and ;a reliable, truthful man.
He bays fifty years ago his father was
a poor young man, just married, and
had got hold of a little typs and an
old press of the mos* primitive kind
and got a little room to put it up in.
His wife lived in the office with him,
did the cooking and washing there
and helped him at the case and press.
He had no other assistance, and very
little furniture, one bed, a couple of
chairs, a skillet and oven, arid a little
table furniture. Airs. Marschalk's
confinement!.was rather premature,
and the infant was wrapped in its
.addling clothes and laid upon the
bed of the j/ress, as there was nootlur
place to put it. The boy was raised
up a printer and received no educa
tion whatever, except from his parents
and the types. He sny3 his father
had forty-eight subscribers aud four
exchanges. % Tho subscribers paid
mostly in provisions, and th c family
relied upon ; tho legal advertising ol
the county- and an occasional job for
money to buy their clothing and pay
for house rent, and yet they got along
first-rate, and the Marschalks were
useful and valuable members of soci
A WiFivd Pow ii.?A good wifo)
is to a man, wisdom, strength and
courage; ab d. one is confusion, weak
ness and 'despair. No condition is
hopeless to a man where the wife
possesses drriiuess, decision aud econ
omy.' TheYo is no out ward propriety
which can counteract indolence, ex
travagance and folly at home. No
spirit can long endure bad influence.
Man is strong but his heart is not
adamant. He nee Is a tranquil mind;
and especially if be is an intelligent
man, with a whole head, he needs its
moral force in the conflict of life. To
recover his composure, home must be
a place of peace arid comfort. There i
his soul renews its strength, and goes
forth with renewed vigor to encounter I
the labor and troubles of life. Hut if
at home he finds no rest and there is
met with bad temper, jealousy aud
gloom, or asfuilcd with complaints
and censure, hope va nishes, and he
dinks into despair.

DEALERS IN FERTILIZERS.
Ciiai.ESTOK, S. C. November 1, 1875.
Having been engaged for twenty years in 1
the (iugno Trade with eminent success, 1
deemed it advisable to introduce Fertiliiera
under my own name and guarantee. I have *
made arrangements to have prepared a
Guano under my inspection and control,
called ROBKOX'S COTTON AND CORN
FERTILIZERS. This Guano is of tho
highest standard. It contains, among other
valuable ingredients, threo percent- of Am
monia, one am] a half per cent, of PoUsh,
ami fourteen) per. cent, of Av&lablc Phos
phate. I also have prepared for me a
COMPOUND ACID PHOSPHATE of the
highest standard. These Fertilizers are
eom]H)unded of the purest materials, and
arc manipulated and tested under the ?u
pcrvisinn of Dr. St. J* Ilaveacl, of this city
whose name gives a warrant for their high
character ami adaption for our soil. I offer
these Fertilizers to Planters on the follow
ing favorable terms :
RODSON'S COTTON AND CORN FER
Cosh $41 per ton; on time, $50^
ROBSON'S COMPOUND ACID PHOS
Cash, $28 per ton; on time, $33.
Planters ordering immediately will be al
lowed to the first of April to decide which
tbey prefer, cash or time. An order for a
car load of eight tons'will be sent free of
drayage; but for a less amount $1 per ton
will be charged. On orders for large lots
froth Grangers or dealers, a liberal discoun
will be allowed.
I take this occasion to return my thanics
to those who have so largely patronized the
Fertilizers hitherto ofTered by me, and in
soliciting their favorable attention to anoth
er, I pledge my best cfibrts to merit a contin
uance of confidence by keeping the highest
