VThe-jjv IPednesday night of last

the great event and all absorbing topic of

In many respects. In the number and el

theyoong gentlemen. It haa -never been
excelled, if Indeed it haa ever beeu equaled.
Ths music and prompting were good, and
the dancing was exquisite, and fully np to
the latest style of tbe art. Waltzing is be
coming a much more fashionable, as it has
ever been a most fascinating amusement
than formally, and as the lovers of the
dance became more familiar with the evo
lutions and involutions, and the intricacies
of the Intertwining gyrations and giddy
mazes of the gliding, whirling, clasping and
turning 01 ine rouuu uance, nice snases
peare's Adonis, many a fervid young man
wishes tiiat it would never end, and as he
rushes it) to the arms .extended--to receive
bini, he fancies that he reads thoughts like
these: , -.
"Even thus, quoth she, the war-like god
And then she clipped Adonis In her arms;
Even thus, quoth she, the war-like god un
As if the boy should use like loving
Even thus, quoth she, he seized me on my
And with her lips, did act tbe seizure;
And as she fetched her brjath, right iu he
-And takes her meaning with all Us pleas

Is not iu the programme, hut clasping, or as
Shakespeare has it, "clipping' Is. One
young man, who did not taste, but only
looked on, said the very sight carried bim
to tbe third heaven of bliss, and like John
In bis npacolypt.ic vision, he saw sights
which I'll is not lawful lor a man to utter."
The young men enjoyed It, and the married
men who were present, seemed to relish It,
too, with all the freshness ol a first taste.
The young men will have to look to their
laurels, or else these benedicts will outstrip
them (not literally 1 lu these scenes. One of
these was so fascinating In his attentions to
a young lady that 'tis said she fainted when
learned that he was a married man. One
other, an old stager at hope, though still a
young man, is .a gentleman of princely
manners, and knows exactly where and

people. They hnd a meeting a few nights
ago, In one of our palatial mansions, aud
one or more mediums being present, they
had a lively time. The circle assembled
around tbe table, placing their fingers upon
it, aud soon il rose from the floor, and an
attempt, to pull it down by the legs olthe
table resulted in pulling them off, while the
table still moved on, floating as it were, on
ly touched by the tips of tbe Angers of tbe
party; which it contluucd to do until tbe
charm was brokeu by the uproarious laugh

of the p'rty, i

One of our official functionaries, who has
been su Bering lately with colic, was advised
by Bill McM., or Carter's Creek, to try stand
ing ou his bead whenever a spell came on
him. He didn't have to wait long. Ho was
attacked one night la-t week while in bed,
and circumstances being favorable for an
experiment, he placed his head upon the
bed and turned his heels up In the air, but
losing bis balance he fell overboard, wltu a
tremendous crash, startling his wife from
her slumbers, and nearly breaking his nt rk.
She called to him 10 kuow what was tne
matter, and with his usual readiness In fix
ing up things, he said robbers had broken
Into ine house aud knocked bim down.
The next day he "acknowledged the com,"
but not tbe juice of it; bat says now he
doesn't know whether It n standing on
his head or the fail that knocked the colic
out of him.

That Jim Andrews is a sky scraper may
be ebseryed by the cut of his bair. It may
be said that Duncan Dorris cf the tinci-iom
may also be so judged, for recently It Is aaid
be had bis auburn locks removed close
dawn to the cranium. But there Is a mean
ing In all this an explanation. Jnat one
year ago, in the balloon Buffalo, they started
for the North Star, collided with that luml
nary, causing the immediate rubbing aff of
the bair down to tbe timber line. The bal
loon was not damaged but the planet
knocked considerably out of place, which
accounts for another strange phenomena to
saiiors, whose magnets have failed In sever
al instances loguiae tuem into uarnors nev
er belore discovered. They first set sail
June l.s, aud singularly enough have been
going up ever since. Andrews weighed 186
pounds at thatdate, now ne pulls down the
scales to 21b. Dorris started out with 1X1
pounds avordupois, aud now reacbea pat np
to 1WI pounds. The question bothering the
minds of scientists is whether they ought to
be appointed to conduct the new flying ma
chines now about being brought out in the
East. Both have expressed eagerness lor
another voyage. We might here .slate, how
ever. Hi at since Andrews' brave hearted
bride saw him off, as she feared, for the last
lime, sue has accepted his company, not In
a balloon, but lu a very pleasant residence
in Columbia for life, and he is happy. Dor

saw him off in the Buff.ilo, congratulates
herself that balloon voyages are not made

Prof King has since delighted visitors te

would doubtless make an ascension at the
stale F'air next fall if the proper effort were
put forth to get him there, il we bad "gas"

ago Mr. Joseph N. Walker's mind became
temporarily deranged, on tne su til eel or re
ligion. He was sent to the Asylum, and was
soon apparently restored, ana escaped and
came uoine. Excitement made him worse,
and last week he was placed In Jail, as a
piace 01 connnement, tne county naviug no
more room in me.yiuni. The concert lo
nignt is to make money to seep film in a
private asylum. The object Is one that up
peals to everybody's sympathies. Not l

community, nut we Know me people will

ment of t his community, and that of wblch
lb e gentleman whose name caption this
notice was more immediately connected,
when we ex press regret at hisdrparture Irom
this to another field of labor of his Master's
cause. Mr. Mack haa beeu pastor of Wax
haw and l ulty Churches for two and a hall
years, and during that time has doubled the
memoersnip 01 waxnaw 1 nnrrn ana done
faithful and efficient work In other portions
of this section. Though not of the same
deuomlnotion, we never failed to hear htm
when opportunity presented; aud while we
regard him as among the most profound in
tellects of the pulpit, be Is also a truly pi
ous, humble Chrlsilan. He has accepted a
call from (he Presbyterian Church at t'o-
lumma, auu in leaving us uelakes with him
the prayers and tbe warmest sympathy of
all Christians. LancatUrr Lrdyrr.
