the "Suner 1Ianner," I have only to say
that I have used all the exertiots that
circumtstances would allow, to rendiIr thlie
paper, what it -should be and in rctiring
and conveyinsg to others, the dities and re
sponsaibilities wihich I have attempled faith
filly to fulfill, I have the satisfaction of
knowing ihat I leave the concern in a more

This vexed anrd long liiigated aflThin noiw
undergo ig its secoind le-gal inves legationt
at WVashingtoni has been brougt to a stanul
by the unaccountable loss of t wo very im

" Man wants btit ittlc her.e hielow,

Th~e old quotation which we make above
mlay lie apli ed to manli, as an individuah'
and we have no objections to it, but. when
a body corporate is spoken of in connee
tion with its w-ants, the puzzle is .to kntow
where to begin, and whlere to end is a
problem for the next cenitnry to solveC.
The anntual election for town oflicers hasi
jutst been held, and conliding ini their lion
est desire of the newly electedl Council to
promote the interests of~ the town ; it may
not be anmiss to throw out a fewv htints as
to what might now and canl be done for the
welfare of' Sumnterville and athe comufort of
its inihabitants. Wee do this not as giving
advice, but. simply to call attent ion to some
facts andl induce discussion. T1hie town is
eut of debt ? This we are told tupon thu
street, foer no public stzatement of its fitnan..

fromt the (C/trleston Mlarket'. It (voul~d
aliso be an inducexne!t for neighboring
farmers to devote more attention to stock
raising, knowing they could find a regular
sale, and not have their meat carts on
one day surrounded with vulture looking
faces, and the next find every one supplied
and lie obliged to return as lie came. The
citizon fares likewiso, for tis feast one

The street, tlianks to good drainage and
a light soil, are generally passabl, but a
few hundred loads of saw-dust froi tlie
iighboring mill applied in wet weather
would not hurt.
A Town clerk iight serve a good pur

we 1must not be audacious.
The last want which we shall now no

gooc iupply of water, and surely the pre

is tendered a very necessary precaution
