was appointed to draft a paper setting forth
the purposes and advantages of such an or

Col. R. R. Eudgins, of Foreston, lost two
tenemental houses by fire last week. They
were situated on his tram roid, about two
miles from Foreston, and about a half mile
apart. The burning was the work of an in
cendiary. Col. Hudgins says he will give
$25 for proof to convict the miscreant.
GREELEYVILLE, Nov. 9.-The gin house
belonging to Messrs. T. P. Gamble and
Willie O'Bryan was destroyed by fire night
before last. Cause accidental, supposed to
be fire dropped from a pipe into some cot
ton hauled to the house a few hours before.
Value of house and contents about $2,400.
Some of the cotton belonged to other par
ties, and-some will be saved from the ruins.
Engine and machinery not burned.

The commissary of Mr. Pinckney Rich
bourg. who lives in the Santee section, about
five miles from Jordan, was burned Friday
night, Nov. 23rd. The loss was about $200
or $300. Mr. Richbourg thinks the house
was first rotbbed, and then set from behind.
The fire was beyond control when discov
ed. During the past five years Mr. Rich
bourg has suf'ered heavily from fire. First
his dwelling was burned; then his ginjhouse,
a wagon and two mules; then a stack of
fodder in the field; and now his commisary.
He feels confident that he will be able to
bring the last crowd to justice, and it is
very probable that the same party has done.
all the work. Some of the better class of
colored people in that neighborhood have
promised him their assistance in ridding
the community of such a fiend.
Pioo.&, Dec. 3.--On Saturday by request
we paiid Rockhind, the palatial residence of
Captain A. L. Lesesne, a special visit. The
Connor Mounted Rifiemen had appointed
that day for a company drilL. Those of us
who are familiar with the origin and history
of this grand old company must ever cher
ish the name and memory of the lamented
Capt. Brown Manning. Capt. Manning
was a gallant soldier and officer of the Con
federate army, commanding a company from
Clarendon, a part of the Hampton Legion.
At Lee's surrender he returned to his native
eonty, conquered like all her people, to
ada Pt himself to a new order of things and
battle asothers did with a horde of scala
wags, carpet baggers, &c., who had formed
a government and code of laws too dis
graceful in the State ever to be effaced from
memory or-vision. Through his efforts the
company was put on foot. It was the pride
of the county. Its name after one of South
Carolina's most distinguished generals,.will
lie in the history of this nation, especially
in Carolina, for generations to come.
Since his death the company has been
commanded by J. C. Manning, James Weeks,
and W. S. Briggs. The latter having re
signed some weeks ago, our young friend A.
LaMotte Lesesne was unanimously chosen
Captain. The company has never had a more
efficient corps of officers. The drill lasted
three hours. There is a determination tomake
this an effective corps. They are well uni
formed in accordance with State's regula
tions in all minor points. The present of
Ificars are aiming to place the Connor Mount
ed Rifles upon a solid footing along with'
th best cavalry companies of the State. At
the close of the drill Captain Lesesne's
seech was received with vociferous ap
pause. In his humorous style he spoke
of the bountiful supply of turkey, rice,
pork, sweet things, &c., that was prepared
frthe occasion by lady friends .1 the coxn
