The Fair commenced under favorable
aus.pices on the evening of the 9th, and
continued wvith succe-ss through several
successive evenings. The tables were
ornamented with beautiful wreaths, which
served as frontal canopies 'for the fair
presiding queens, and were profusely co

use. wvhioh tried the genorosity of the vis

NEW POST OFFICES..
Three new post offices have lately been
established in this district, Shiloh, Taylors
ville, and Wright's Bluff;-the two first be
ing on the Bradloyvillo route..
Thy woll known temperance lecturer do-.
livered an address on the subject, on the eve
ng of the 13h, at the Baptist church in this
place. On so hackneyed .a subject, little
that is new can be produced; his audience
however were gratified by the earnsesss;
arguments, felicitous manner and sentiments
of the orator.. .....
In the course of-thie beansination of a wit
ness in a case tried duriuig the present term
of the court the witness testified that he vo
ted at the late election, though not of the age
of 21, by putting a piece of paper, with 21
written on it, in his shoe, and so voting,
"being,"~ as ho -said, "orer 21."
JTrhe Judge commented very severely on
this fraud on the election, and so treated t
without an indictment, whtich, however, he
ias very strongly mclined to set on foot.
If this had been done, the witness would
have fared badly, and his vote would have
cost him dearly.
