actcristio sermons In me i-resn t-rnti
i i,..r... i..i umwiqv nieht. from Isainli 4!ith
chapter and 4th verse. The sermon was full
... ... ! ... Miurillnii truths, and was
encouraging to all christians. He spoke. of
the lamentations of the prophets and ol the
saints ol the New Testament as "the despair
.r humanity," and saiu mat it was uoi
.. i.. i. inn hut that the despair
in. uNiiii.sii i iiruimive in ihe Harden of
;..7ti.-i,i..!i.. wlien Peter, the tried and
tin..liil lrl..i,it llllll denied him, and when
Judas was standing around with the inteii-
li. in s.. Hi. or I he A asters ine ior money
ami when all Ills disciple had refused to
watch n iiii lil m In that trying hour, was
the same despair which had settled upon
Moses, Eiijah, Isaiah, Imvid,Holuinon, Ktiiil
it I :t rwn 4 urn i others hut that, as he and
hey triumphed, so would the christious of
in' iirt'Ki.iit iihv. lr inev woiuu rut uini

much he hud heeu encouraged while visi
ting tin; chnrciies.thlsSummer, with which
he Has f.imiliar in Virginia. That he had
loiiiid them as .calous as they were In tne
il.ivM.f old. At t he close of his sermon he
said tli it' In looking over the statistics of
I'm- church, he found that the church at o
lumli a hini paid more for peaching, with
Ihe exii ui ion of three others, than all the
other i-hurdies In the Presbytery, and that
i'nr oilier purposes conuected with the
-l:ureli thev iial paid one-tnird of the
whole aiiioiint collected. Tills was a good
show iim and n merited compliment to the
I'lt-shvicrian Church in this city, of which
w e are iiriiml. He admonished the mem
tiers to let the uood work uo ou, and that
I :icv should not despair. This is hut an

Of the sombre woods to-day;
Blessed with an unction, sweet,
For tlie pilgrim at their feet.
Here the moss is moist with dew,
All the livid day time through;
And all things invite repose,
Where the lady's sUp per grows.
Honeysuckles form a head,
On the overhanging ledge:
KissiDg us with fragrant lips,
And the pearly trickle drips;
As some great water-clock,
From the fountain of tbe rock
On whose eaves the nine-bark grows,
And the lady's sliprer grows.
Friend, I would that life like this,
Free from care and avarice;
Free from traffic's rush and roar,
Alight be ours for evermore;
Though the earth be bought and sold,
F'or a paltry bit of gold,
Man to mammon nothing owes,
Where the lady's slipper grows.
I am tired of sham and show.
Gilt above and dross below:
I u the parlor, on the pave,
At tue wedding aud the grave;
I'm grateful, to have found,
Rude and wild, this virgin ground,
When tueir no false-heart shows;
W here the lady's slirper grows."

It is pretty generally conceded that

uarrei tuis Fail, it seems like everytuiiii
mat the farmers raises for market Is at
very low price. This is hard ou that class,
who are in debt; especially so with those
who are paying ten per cent. The farmers
are not by themselves in getting small
prices for the fruits of their labor. The mer
chants are in the same fix; goods never as
low as they are at present. The merchants
and laboring men are in a still worse condi
tion. In all the large cities, thousands up
on top of thousands are out of employ
ment, and when they do get anything to do
it is at a reduced price, to what it formerly
was. we see mat tne railroads anu manu
facturing companies are constantly reduc
ing the wages of their employes: hence the
strikes. When we see farm produce, goods
and labor at such a low price, ought not the
of all other occupations come down to cor
respond? Lawyers, doctors and teachers
should come down in their prices. The on
ly practical remedy for our financial trou
bles is to follow tlie example of the Demo
cratic House of Representative, cat down
on living expenses. The farmers are begin
ning to make preparations to have their sugar-cane
made up. The crop Is larger this
year tlia i usual, and unless they get more
mills in the country a good deal of It will be
lost. The hay crop is so large very little
fodder is being pulled. Sweet potatoes are
going to be very Hue; the Irish are not so
good. Apples are plentiful and of a good
quality. Peaches are very scarce. Those
who have mule colts to seli have been try
ing for mine time to get the market open,
but so far they have failed; holders are ask
ing forty dollars for first-class mule buyers
want them for less.

The Texas fever is raging to a considerable

accounts of growing crops. They have put
a great many lu the notion of going. Some
portions of Texas are very mucii in wantoi
water. The old settlers who live on the

ally want to sell. The way they manage to
make new comers believe they have plenty
of water on their laud Is somewhat novel
and original. Pickens aud Bryant had an

The old dirt roads were much lietter fifty
A'ears ago than how. Then the surface had
been but little washed, and there werebut few
rocky ledges exposed: now, from tlie wear

rock are on the travelled routes.
Then there were no macademizetl roads.
These now ou the main roads are better
than any ot the old dirt roads.
The climate has materially changed, both
lu Summer anil Winter. When tbe country
was sun heavily timbered, aud particularly
ou tbe hills there) was much less breeze on
the surface, and tile Summers were more
oppressive from the want of air.
'ihe Wlnteis then were not so changeable
ai now. There were usually many snows.
aud when the ground was ouce frozen it re
mained cold aud settled for some time, and
there was not so much rain in the W tutor.
Then, when the rivers and creeks were
flush they remained up a long time. The
ground, being open ami porous, absortied so
much water it fed the streams some time.
Now, when there Is a flooding rain, com
paratively little is absorbed. The streams
rise rapidly aud soon run down.
There being now so much wind on the
surface, not only gives us keen, cold winds.

At an early day there were old-Held
schools. Reading, writing and arithmetic
were taught. Then the teacher was em
ployed for tlie year, and he hammered
away the whole year at $1 ier month for 1 11
ition; his board, ti per month. About lttto
English gram mar and geography were first
tuuiit, iu ine country, xueyear was men
divided into two sections ot five mouths
each. In MM commenced the first session
lu Pleasant Grove Academy, under the su
perintendence of Andrew R. Kerr. He had
been educated by (iaybrooke, at Hartle
inau's Cross Roads, and by great personal
exertion he had obtained a good classical
tducatiou. He was still a great student,
and had a happy faculty of imparting in
struction with perfect order aud system.
The Academy, after the first session, was
crowded to its utmost capacity of near lou
siudeuls. Mississippi furnished about a
dozen, a great many were from GUes the
Hul'ords, Wheelers, Flournoys, Hainey, Gor
don, Lane, Drs. Battle, Realty, Campbell
and others. Columbia was represented by
the Plummers, Smisers, Groves, Bookers,
Rhodes and others. Some were from Mar
shall. The country all around the Academy
was fully represented, and many of decided
prominence in our day were educated
there. Many intelligent farmers, doctors,
lawyers and ministers, all with pleasure
recollect the happy school-days at Pleasant
Grove. The teacher being so devoted a stu
dent even then prompted a pride and love
01 stuuy, and tne education 111 tne languages
ami sciences was thorough. About the
same time, James H. Wilkes,' our present
couuty superintendent, taught, just west of
Big by ville, a classical school of a high order,
where many eminent men were educated.
I was not so well acquainted witii this
Belvittere Academy as Pleasaut Grove.
Jackson College, north of Columbia, was
then a fine school. Columbia demanded
facilities, and Jackson College was moved
there, and furnished facilities of a higher
order of education than those earlier.
Cotton, in patches for family use, was cul
tivated by the early settlers. Its cultiva

built, probably, the first gin south of tlie
river, and packed In lon:; bags hung up,
