Some people arc opposed to round
dancing. One authority says: "There
is no pleasure which so completely
sets at defiance the laws of propriety
and decency as round dances do "
"The dance in the parlor will soon
, be substituted by the protracted and
j exciting dissipation of the ball room.
The fondness for the dance becomes
n passion, and may lead a woman to
to iK? devil." Why not say that it
may lead a man to the devil too ? Ot
is it that the latter animal undergoes
no danger while going through the
mazes of the dance ? We kuow one
authority, however, who favors every
variety of round dancing, and paints
the charms of on a of them in the fol

"Wade Hampton, Governor of
South Carolina," is the subject of an
exquisite life-size engraving, just
published (and now ready) by our
enterprising friends, Walker. Evans
& Cogswell, Charleston, S. C. We
congratulate these gentlemen on the ,
grand success they have made of so
noble a subject. As a work of art it
stands unrivalled, but still its chief
merit lays in its i'cing a lift-like por
trait. It is the first product, on so
large a scale, of a new and secre'. pro
cess based on photography, having
the advantage of great tru hfidnc**.
As the photograph has sit pcrsedod the.
oil-painting, because of its exac re
production of the subject,so thin pro
cess is bound to take the place of
steel engraving, or any method which
depends upon artistic conception and
execution for results?we mean for
the production of portraits. What
the people want in a portrait is truth
?they do not wish the artist's con
ception of a man, but the face and fea
tures of the man as he is?and by no
means can this grand result bo bettor
attained than by tho means of photo
graphy, and this new process based
thereon. But while these great ad
vantages arc secured, it admits of the
embellishments of art, aud a portrait
is produced possessing all the truth
fulness of a photograph, with the
artistic effect of the steel engraving.
The publishers have been cxtrcmoly
fortunate in tbeir selection of tho
mode by which they give to all ad
mirors of tho great statesman tho
noble, generous, manly features, which
speak so plainly, the great mind, ole

TEN NIGHTS IN A IIA II-ROOM.
We naturally feel some hesitancy
in treating amateur representations.
It is questionable whether it comes
within the legitimate province of
newspaper criticism to speak harshly
of amateur performers. It is like
looking a gift-horse in the mouth.
In the present instance, however,
we have a lot of pleasant, things to
say concerning Prof. Berg's Glee
Club, ami their creditable rendition
of this somewhat difficult drama at
Masonic Hall on Wednesday and
Thursday nights of this week.
"Ten Nights in a Bar-Room" was
dramatized for the purpose of placing
before the public in a conspicuous
and convincing light the evils atten
dant upon dealing in or drinking
ardent spirits. It conveys with dra
matic force the beauty and loveliness
of sobriety ou the one hand, and the
hideous arid ghastly spectacle of a
drunkard's life ou the other. The
career of the erring inebriate is faith
ful ly tlelincntid from the time that
the first social glass of whiskey is
taken up to the p int where he de
scends to the bankrupt in character
and the brute in disposition. It ex
hibits also hi undisguised and repul
sive tongue the lives of those who
make their living by dealing out this
liquid poison to their fellow men, and
portrays in eloquent representation
the terrible truth thai liquor selling
is a bane to society, and that the for
tunes made by it will in the end bring
trouble and disgrace upon those who

trionic power in the roles he assumed,
and went through them with marked
success, considering the number of
times he embibed at Sladc's bar.
The landlord, "Simon Slade," and
his son, "Frank," performed their
parts with a great deal of natural
ease, and afforded a striking cxamplo
of the absence of conscience from the
characters they represented.
"Mrs. Slade" won encomiums from
all aides, aud elicited much admiration
b) the manner iu which she declared
her preference for the humbler walks
of life, to those enjoyed by tho wife of
a landlord who rondo his livelihood
by selling liquor and cheating drunk
"Joe Morgan" delincnted tho sad
phases of the drunkard's lifo to abso
lute perfection, and gave cvidenco of
tho lact that ho was not a stranger to
thc*tagc. His wife illustrated the nev
er-dying devotion of a true woman, and
in tho anguish of her soul gave force
ami siguificauco to the words "for
better or for worse.'' Their little
daughter, "Mary Morgan," was full of
paternal love, and, despite her father's
disgrace, clung to him until she died.
AH unite in saying that "Mary's"
acting was a marked feature of the
performance. With a voice of rare
sweetness, sympathy, melody and
freshness, "Mary" attracted and won
the plaudits of tho night.
"Harvey Green" was true to his
character and took off the gambler in
handsome style, while "Willie Ham
mond" acted the role of the rich, un
guarded young man to thesat isfaction
of the entire audience, and succeeded
rcmarkab'y well in bringing his
father to poverty. "Harvey" and
"Willie" were faithful to nature, and
showed no signs of stage timidity or
"Ten Nights in a Bar-Room" is a
melancholy drama. Full of misery
and death, it yet teaches a us ful
lesson and imprints itse'f in indelible
characters upon the mind of every
one who sees it enacted It is the
most eloquent temperance lecture
ever Fpokcn, and paints the drunkard
and ihc liquor dealer in their separate,
distinct aud personal roles.
In conclusion, we have to thank
Prof. Berg and the Glee Club for the
pleasure afforded our citizens in the
presentation of so instructive a
drama. We have the talent here,
which, when properly cultivated, will
reflect credit on Orangeburg, and
furnish all the amusement our citizens
desire. Let Prof. Berg persevere in
his present course and he will become
indispensable to the enjoyment of the
