Deep Creeker Again.
DEEP CBEm, Aug. 7.--While I am
under many obligations to Maj. R.
R. Hudgins, of Foreston, for his
prompt courtesy in replying to my
communication in your paper, I do
not know which I am more thankful
for, his information or his advice. I
am satisfied that the farmers of the
county will be greatly benefitted if
they plant after the manner prescrib
ed by him, and I hope that all the
"Creekers" will follow his instructions
in preparing for another corn crop.
It is very kind of the Major to teach
us how to raise the "staff of life," but
when he advises us, in case of failure,
to go to Liberia in search of that
highly flavored fruit, the succulent
bananna, he is either trying to guy
us or else his pomological knowl
edge is somewhat "abreviated." If
I am not very much mistaken the
1uscious laxury alluded to is about as
scarce in Liberia, as one-hundred
bushels-to-the-acre corn is around
Forestog. The Major's allusion
to my hunting and fishing to
the nelect of my farm was en
tirely gratuitous as it is well
known to all my neighbors that I
posses zither dog, gun, nor fishing
tackle. I will, however, pardon him
for the accusation if he will tell me
whether it is best to gather corn
*while it is silking and tasseling or
wait until the ear is matured. I
believe he has tried both plans.

Wu.sor's, Aug. 7.-A tnatch game of base
ball was arranged to take place at Capt.
Coskrey's, on Saturday afternoon last, be
tween the Brewington and the Coskrey
clubs, but owing to the inclement weather
both clubs were only parthidly represented.
As quite a number of people had ass'em

taken from the spcctators and the fun com
The contestants were all very much in
earnest, and with the bright eyes of several
young ladies to urge themn on to victory
they put in some good work, and made tL~e
game a very interesting one. The score
stood 13 to 11 in favor of the successful
nine, Mr. Edgar S. Plowden, captain. Af
ter the combat ceased a water-mnelon feast
was participated in by the crowd, and the
afternoon, notwithstanding the rain, was a
very enjoyable one. I do not know any
section of the county that can boast of as
many lovely and beautiful young ladies as
are to be found in this neighborhood, and
after spending the afternoon in their charm
ing society I canre home to dream of huge
melons being opened by glances from the
brightest of eyes, sliced up by fairy fin

The Town Hal!.
For a time previous to our recent
municipal election, the question of
building a town hail was warmly a:
itated; and so fervent appeired the
advocates and so united the sen
timent we believed the accomplish
ment sere near-even at.the door.
The only source of disagreement was
the location, the most suitable place.
Here the different sections "drew
sword" in friendly contest-for supply
ing a site, upon which to erect the cdi
tice. But since the election, very little
has been said upon the subject; and
why ? The people of our town should
not allow minor differences to strangle
in the hour of its birth an enterprise,
the advantages of which to place and
people it would be difficult to enum
erate; nor is it necessary that these
results should be here recounted.
We all know them; we all admit them
in the main. It is earnestly hoped
that the people will lay aside person
I al preferences, and all work for the
"Hall." Our Council is composed of
men willing to advance the public in
terest; and if aided by a united senti
ment will go to work, and set the
ball in motion, and keep it going, -
til we shall have a hall worthy of our
The Mannin: T!lk.
The fall of the ver comes on ,apaen, and
with its golden harvests and whitening
nelds, we are retninded that the b~usy bus
le of barter anl traflie will soon again
claim our thiats and attention. In view
of this opening trade. our miands naturally
turn to blusiness needs.
While taking a careful survcs of the
field, no sy4ect directs our attention with
more force, than that relative to the oft dis
cussed one of the bank enterprise. It
would prove a work of supererogation to
name, in an age like this, the advantages
resulting from such an effort. It is not one
of theory or speculation. not a doubtful in
stitution. 'It is ever one of the attendants
n prosperity. activity, enrligltenment, and
wealth. Is it for the rich alone? PBy no
means. It comes as the st rvants of all
farmers, mechanics, merchants, lawyers,
and doctors. The shares are in reach of the
slender purse of the poor, and can relieve
the plethoric pouches of the wealthy. As a
business venture it pays elsewhere, and
why not in the beautiful and stirring town
of Manning? The prospects must bave
been inviting in our sister city of Sumter.
Notwithstanding the staggering blow sus
tained, scarcely had the requiem been
chanted over the departed chashier and the
dead bank, when the vaulted capital from
there and other places sought exit through
the paying teller of a new bank; and busi
ness progressed as though it had received
no shock whatever.
Let our leading business men here take
the initiatory steps; and if they only lend a
part of theii- means, and a goodly portion
of the energy that has made Manning what
it. is, it needs no prophetic vision to fore
tell that success is assured, and a lo jll
wad supplied. -
The town and surrounding country
has been visited in the past few days
by delightful health-giving showers
of rain, much to the comfort of our
people, who had bee sweltering!
amid the sweeats of a thernimeter at
95 degrees. -
The effect of this intense heat and
long continued drought, in many sec
tions of our county, has been to par
tially destroy the corn crops, and
damage very seriously the cotton.
We trust, however, that these recent
heavy rains, though late, will revive
the drooping crops and spirits of our
Notwithstanding these heavy show
ers, the heat still continues up) to a
point almost beyond endurance. '.The
nights with their usually cooling
shades appear to lend full force to
the oppression of the day, the ra
diated heat, almost equaling the temn
peraure of noon, with the thermome
ter slightly fallen.
We have been told that a colored
man by name of Grant had a pint of
liquor offered him by a lad, from an
adjoining county, if the former would'
drink the same at one "setting down."
The terms proved, apparently, very
agreeable and acceptable; but very
sortly after taking down the "chain
ed lightning"-found in barrooms gen
erally these days, the man collapsed
so completely as to lay in a stupor,
from which it was apprehended he
would never awake. But active emet
ics having been given him, the
deadly stuff was partially discharged
and relief afforded. Horrible indeed
must be the slavery that drives one
to such extremities.

Cj1.uu.FLsrox. Aug. 4.--The demo
cratic mass :neetiug, called by the
State executive committee, came
of in front of the city hall last
night. Gov. Richardson was the first
speaker. He entertained his audi
ence in his usual eloquent style.
Lieut. Gov. Mauldin made his bdst ef
fort since the campaign opened. His
strongest point was in support of the
acceptance of the Clemson bequest.
The little white-haired, clean-shav
ed, one-eyed farmer from Edgefield
dispelled their eloquence with a state
ment of such an array of uncontro
verted facts as carried conviction to
the hearts of every true democrat
present that a careless want of econo
my has crept into our administration,
though we prefer not to hear of it.
Comptroller General Verner was on
hand for the express purpose of re
futing, with the records, Tillman's
charges, but signally failed; many
were not even contradicted savo in an
Your correspondent is not in full

be deceived by the report of last
night's meeting contained in the Necs

ton, judging from that assemblage,
stands. The meeting was a large rep
resentative body of intelligent white
citizens, and by great odds a Tillman
sympathising audience. The masses
seem to realize the strangulation they
have suffered at the hands of the po
litical rings and packed conventions,
and it does not take the eye of a
prophet to see a storm coming that
wil raise the negro vote to an exceed
ingly important factor in our State
election twvo years hence, if therc is

in authority don't direct their thoughts
more to the needs-:iay, wants-of the
gricultural class of our' citizens there
ill be no mistaking where to place
the responsibility when the crisis

gerous. A change of leadership with
it, means a change of government for

A month or two since, some parties
passed throug this county with a
umber of fine horses for sale, and
succeeded, in a manner, no doubt,
very gratifying to themselves. But,
to the discomfiture of the purchasers
here and elsewhere, it came to lighti
last week that the horses were under
mortgage in another State; and the
irate mortgagee has turned up as
claimant. We learn with regret, that
one of our leading lumber men bought
perhaps the best horse of the lot, and
will most probably have to maintain
his purchase before the courts. It is
reported, and very likely true, that
others in adjoining sections, have sus
tained even heavier losses. As usual,

We had intended making a full re
port of the Greenville Encampment,
but other matter crowded it out last
week. The encampment was a suc
cess. Every body appeared to be in
a good humor, and we did not, on the
entire trip, or during our stay in the
city, see anything like rowdyism.
The Manning Guards did themselves
credit, and had all the fun they were
looking for, too. Their tents were
placed at the entrance to the encamp
ment, next to the city, and as
every body generally passed in that
way, almost all the mischief done in
the camp was charged to their account.
A crowd of other fellows would come
in from the city, at a late hour of the
night, and managing in some way to
overpower the "sentinel on his lonely
beat," would with a wild "rebel yell"
rush into *quarters. The Manning
Guards got all the credit for tbis, but
we are assured by the officers that
they were not ir fault. Our boys
were not as well drilled as some oth
er companies, but we hope that by
the next encampment they will be up
with the best. Our merchants should
encourage them by giving them a lit
tle more time in the afternoon.
Greenville is a growing town, and
has been christened the "Pearl of the
Piedmont." Hundreds of acres of
grapes are in cultivation in and near
the city. Other fruits are cultivated
largely. Railroads and manufactur
ing enterprises are building, and on
the whole it is a thriving, bustling,
booming, busy town.
The balloon ascension was an inia
ted failure: it refused to act, as the
small boy would remark. The fire
works were very good, but an admis
sion fee of fifty cents was charged,
and as every body expected it to be
free, there was some little grumbling
