Fragments from Foreston.
Fonss-os, Nov. 27.-Rah! for Foreston!
Why? Because she furnished about twenty,
five visitors to the Charleston Gala, and
while she put in the visitors she was not
slow in putting in something to feed them,
having contributed no less than seven rAice
beeves, besides pork, chickens, and eggs
All those who attended from here express
themselves as highly pleased with the
sights, indeed I might give several funny
Istories from some of those whose first trip
it was, but forbear.
While we look with pleasure on our visit
to the city by the sea, and upon the good
ness and mercy which ever crowns our days,
yet in the midst of pleasure comes sorrow.
11r. Porter, our depot agent, who has been
here as long as any of us, and whose heart
has been entwined around ours, has been
relieved, and must leave us. His place has
been filled by a Mr. Hall, of Kingstree, S.
C., a brother of the agent at your place.
Mr. P. leaves to-morrow for Raleigh, N. C.
Mr. 0. F. Goodwin, formerly of this town,
but now of Charlotte Harbor, Fla., has been
here for several days, closing up his busi
ness. He sold his place, four miles from
here, to Mr. W. P. Roberts.

. In. Enrron: That postal-thank you
kindly; it was a happy reminder. I would
feel better if I had done better. The re
view of the year is not very comforting to
me, and it ought not to be. If I had been
more diligent and faithful to duty the re
sult would have been different. There is a
shortage all around this year. Like old
Cudjo, the corn is short, the potatoes is
short, but "de sun broke tr de cloud an
gin we something once mo." So you see
there is room for grunting where there is so
little prosperity belonging to my charge.
The Lord only knows who is to blame. One
thing I do know, he will measure responsi
bility with an even hand.
Your editorial pathway is rugged, pester
ed with thorns. It is so I suppose with all
editors. At times they are as snappish as
minks, constantly dunning delinquent sub
scribers. Why do this? Do you not help
to give a free and gratuitous literature? The
last visit I paid Manning, I saw an editor
hunting up locals, his face wore frowns of
toil. 0! how I longed to edit his paper, so
much to write about. Manning was so full
of good and pretty things. I had great
anxiety to be an editor, to tell the county
folks what I saw. It was gala week, Man
ning was in her glory, with a strain of mag
nificent music marshaling her beautiful
streets: but I will hush as that part of the
program belongs to your local. It was gala
week, therefore most if not all of the Court
House hunkedoreys were on the breeze, I
only had the pleasure to see your popular

"Hew to the line. let the chips fall as they

A recent visit to 'Vance's gave me an op
portunity to look at the wiecked bridge.
Vance's is a small but growing town on the
Eutawville & Elloree Road. At this june
tion the road from Sumter will connect.
Several months must elapse before the
bridge can be made available. The bridge
disaster was a serious end fearful loss to the
company, involving the necessary addition
al expenditure of $15,000 or $16,000) to re
place the damage. Mr. Pregnal is hard at
work with a double force of hands taking
down the ruins, dredging the channel in
removing its wreck. The trains run daily
from the jurnction to the river, which is one
mile and a half. This is a smooth, level
rad, and goes to show the rapid stride
which must soon span the river and conn-ect
Orangeburg and Clarendon.
Some months ago while canvassing the
Deep Creek section -I made a jocular re
mark that if elected to the office of county
commissioner I would use my influence to
give to the people of that locality a public
road from Jordan to Foreston. I have re
ceived several letters reminding me of my
prms.My traveling companion, a two
hundred pounder, felt the weight of the ar
gument, He would tighten on me at the
jolt of every root. I have wondered since
if he has forgotten the ride from Foreston
to Jordan. I rwnot as his genmal life
will never fade from the memory of the
