AGITATE? GO TO WORK?DO
A dead calm, is to be deplored
either in nature or morals: in busi
ncss, amusement, or religion. To
rise from a state of perfect quiet, en
uulj or torpidity, is the highest duty,
as Well as the supremo privilege of
every man, church, or society.
What matter, then, that men
should rest on their arms, or sink
down to the low level of stupid inani
ty, we have thus stated. Rather,
act the better part of wisdom, good
will, self-interest?and even expe
diency?by coming up to the work
of reform which lies before us.
To do this we must agitate; raise
tho total abstinence ftsue anew: talk
about it; in the streets, in the stores,
in the shops, in the churches,; in our
homes; iudecd everywhere. Hold
Up tho dark record of cv.il, to
tho public gaze. Expose the wiles
and dangers of dram-drinking. Tear
away the yoil that hides its deformi
ties. Lift tho temperance banner,
and keep it flying. Extol tho virtues
of an honest, resolute pledge. And
keop talking reform, in soason and
out of season. Results will appear;
and a glorious roward will crown
your efforts for human good,

de A th OF AN estimable la d y.
On June 10th, 1877, one of the
mo.it widely beloved ladies of this
county bade adieu to tho trials nud
tribulations of this earthly sphere
We have reference to the death of
Mrs. Margaret Hydrick, daughter of
Jacob Hildebrand, and wife of our
worthy fellow citizen, Major J. H.
Hydrick. Mrs. Hydrick was born in
they tar 1819, and her whole life was
distinguished for its modest virtues and
Christian principles. With a mind
unusually active, she frequently com
mitted her thoughts and meditations
to paper to the delight and instruc
tion of her friends. For nearly two
years previous to her, death she
suffered untold pain and misery from
an ailment of the thigh bone; but
through it all she evinced that forti
tude and patience which can alone
characterize the conduct of tho true
Christian. And now that her life ha*
gone out; now that she has joined
that throng of Heavenly spirits of
.which she so loved to talk, it is meet
and proper that we should Bay "peace
be to her ashes."
To her bereaved husband and his j
interesting family,?to all thos* whi ,
mourn her loss iu lowly anguish of
spirit, wo extend our heartfelt sym
pathies. Emulate her example, and
you will meet her again where the
wicked ceaso from troubling and the j
weary are at rest.
'?UnveilI thy bosom faithful tomb,
Take thin new treasure to thy tru*t, \
And give the'sacred reiicYoom -.
To slumber in the silent dust.". .
XjNION sun da r SCHOOL PIC-NIC?
The Committee of arrangements is
certainly indefatigable. It is com
posed of gentlemen and ladies whose
motto is, "never fail." It is a real
nice Committee. Their motto is, nil
desperandttm; dum ?piro, spero I Tues
day next, 19th in at., that pic-nie will
be held, unless the fates are against.
Quite a number of private pic-nics
were given last Tuesday, but the one
next week is to be thepic-nic of the
season, ono that will not soon be for
The Committee on amusements
were full of fun on the 12th inst., and
serious doubts are entertained whether
they can hold in till the 19th, as they
are now nearly bursting. Every as
sistance will bo rendered them, how
ever, and tho little one) may take our
word for it, that the feast of fun to be
enjoyed on that day will last them till
pic-nic season comes again.
The following programme for the
day comes from those in authority :
Tho train will leave the depot a t
8J o'clock precisely, free passage
being furnished both ways. A Com
mittee will be at the depot at 8 o'clock
to receive baskets. All, who can, are
expected to carry baskets, in which,
beside the eatables, they are reques
ted to carry table-cloths, knives,
forks, opoonn and tumblers or cups.
All articles should be marked with
owners names, and a tag be attached
to each basket.
The Committee have madcatrrangu
ments to make the trip on tho cars
both safe and comfortable.
P. 8.?Since writing the above we
learn that h will not be certain that
the excursion train can be procured
on Tuesday. Information ou this
point will be given out in our

An Esaoy on Lawyers.
To write au essay on lawyers is a
hard thing to do, because lawyers are
hard subjects to deal with. But
lawyers are necessary evils, and
therefore should bo written of
whonover npportunity offers. I have
an idea of becoming a lawyer myself
some of these days Not ouo liko
Evarts, or Beach or Fullerton, but a
genuine veritable couutry lawyer,
such as may bo found in any village
or hamlet of the United States. Cou
siu John says I am almost a lawyer
now, but then I do not think he ex
actly know.-, and I am afraid to say I
am, until I can do so without the fear
of successful contradiction.
To be a success as a country law
yer, is my idea of the acme of self
importance, self-esteem and real and
personal dignity. Tho country law
yer, if he is really any lawyer at all,
is very much sought after. People of
all ages, classes,. color, and previous
condition, seek after him. He dis
tributes knowledge by ceptrifnga 1
force. Ho is a big sun flower shedding
effulgent rays upon everything about
him?that is, if sun flowers, Bhed rays
at all. Do you know, Mr. Editor,
whether they do or not ? Cousin Job u
says, they shed their leaves, but then
I do not know whether he exactly
knows or not
As I said, the country lawyer is as
docile as, .
"A little Israb', whose fleece wna white as
And everywhere that Mary went the lamb
wna sure to go."
If I did not say it, I meant it, so its
all the same anyhow.
The country, lawyer too, is a facto*
turn. He can do anything. As a
farmer, David Pickson is in his rudi
ments in comparison. He plants loss
and makes more to the acre than an y
other mnn. The meadows groan und er
his knowledge, aud the' hill sidos
laugh at his . touch- The lilly of the
fields holds up its tender petals at his
coming, and the rose bud blushes into
full bloom maturity in high born
respect. First the seed, then at his
bidding, "the blade, next the ear, then
the full corn ia tho ear." He can
make a half dojr,cn blades of grass
grow where* ..c.ftj,v peas were never
known to spro.ut. He'.discards cotton,
and raises ; tlie? .best-clover. Refuses
the superanuated: Jtyporphated ferti
lizers aud ? makes a double electrified
compound of his own. He makes more
on one strutting old hen and eleven
chickens in one season, than the aver
age farmer makes in an average life
He is also good at writi ng aud
The average country lawyer prac
tices law, farms, aud eats all he can
get his hands on. He can speak on
any subject at any time. Call on him
when you will, aud he is ready, willing,
and waiting to be heard. He is
an ubiquitious, spontaneous out
crop of all kinds of occasions. He is
perfectly at home at a fourth of July
celebration, upon nil of which occa
sions he airs his spread eagle oratory.
Such grand and momentous occasions
would suffer untold loss without him.
""The principles of 76 would have long
since perished, had it not been for the
persistent and indefatigable efforts of
the country lawyer. He it is, who has
kept them burning in the bosoms of
I tho American people for lo! these
J hundred years?who has caused them
I to echo from the lakes to the gulf,
I from the Atlantic the the Pacific.
Take from these occasions our coun
try fawyers, and you tnke away all
I their interests, and eventually from
the American people liberty itself.
Destroyed by worms. Can we
imagine a more horrible death :
and until tho vitals are eaten away.
