May showers of conjugal felicity
About sunset, on the evening of the
30th of April, a dlark and angry cloud
-olliig up in the West, struck terror1
in the bearts of our people; nor was
it lessened -when a violenm storm of
wind joined in and tore through
the trees of the towvn. The frequency
of cyclones and the disastrous results
following them, during the past year,
has aroused aright the-dread of our
people. It is not an easy mattel for
one to show forth his c~urage, wihen
houses and trees are careering around
his head, but the saifest place is home,
at all times and under all circumstan
ces. Flying from it often increases
the danger. The storm passed off with
out doing any damage.

though a small attendance was pres

much interest was shown in the recit

The most of those who enjoyed the
privilege of being in the State Con

great hopes for the future.
Mr. Tindal, the President, who was
also awarded the presidency in the

A DESPE~RATE LOVER.
THE ComssE oF TRUE LovE.
n the mcniing of the - 29th of
April, at Mr. Levi's place on Santee,
a terrible and bloody tragedy was en
acted. .bram Benbow, colored, wa
met by his father, on the public road,
near the residence of the latter, and
found to have been severely wound
ed; his throat bearing the narks of
great 1 -rat ion. On being question
ed, as o the cuise, he replied. that
some one had killed Rachel \lcDuliie,
(a colored woman,) and had attempt
ed to take his life-inflicting the
wounds upon his person.
The circumstances surrounding the
case do not bear out this declaration.
The woman, Rachel, when found, vas
lying almost lifeless from the effects of
several severe blows upon her head,
and near by was lying an axe with
blood upon it, and a pistol. The the
orr of those familiar with the parties,
wLo went there and made an inspect
ion is, that Rachel had played false to
her pliglited troth in more than one
instance, and the smitten and desper
ate Adam being one of those who
had poured out his soul to the false
enchantress, and smarting under the
pangs of unrequitted love, and heart
less coquetry, in a moment of frenzy
seized the axe, inflicting the deadly
wounds. Believing her dying lie at
tempted to complete the tragedy by
cutting his own throat. The unfor
tunate woman is lying critically ill,
and he, likewise, in a precarious con
dition. Neither is expected to recov

THE SOUTHERN BIVOUAC M0R MAY.
The SOUTHPitN Bivornc for May
closes the first volume of the new se
lies most credibly. The first artick
is an illustrated story by Dan. E.
OTSulivan, well told and dramatic in
movement and incident.
A paper of unusual interest is con
tributed by James W. A. Wright, on
prison life at the North, entitled "War
Prisons and War Poetry."
Miss Rowland's second paper on'the
"Virginia Cavaliers" is even more in
teresting than the first.
W. J. Oliphant tells the story of the
"Battle of Arkansas Post."
Will Wallace Harney concludes his
story of "Life in Florida durin: Ae
reign of the Carpet Baggers."
Richard H. Musser continues his
account of the "War in Missouri," and
this installment is accompanied by an
Judge A. E. Richards bas, in -the
Southern Bivouac for May, the first
of two papers on that amiable Confed
erate leader, General Turner Ashbv.

hese papers are of unusual value and
ave attracted much attention. The
last is illustrated' with a portrait of
ohn Breckinridge and by a picture
f his law office.
Twvo poems in the MIay Bivouac will
e widely read. One is an illustrated
oem by H. (2. Wright, of unusual im
iginative force. The other is a mem
orial poem by Mlaurice Thonmpsomn for
Decoration Day, simple but striking.
The first year's record of the South

cause they cannot get their cotton up.
The iemedy is to prepare, and plant
earlier, while the earth is moist from
he winter rains. God always gives
us the opportunity if wve wvill only
work up to it. Farmers, like politi

tickets for front seats in heaven they
would grumble if the drops didn't

how to shoot," to give us his views on
politics, and fishermen. We saw very
plainly that he had been thoroughly
initiated in that most deplorable di
lmma, a "fisherman's luck." We
met one of our friends the other day,
wvending his way homewvard with a
short string of fish and a long string
of- vivid imagination. But wvhile lis
tening to his big fish and snake sto
ries we noticed that all of his snake
bite medicine had evaporated.
A woman's noblest trait of charac
