The New York correspondent a
the Baltimore Sun writes that Mrs
Davis, the widow of the Ex-Presiden
of the Confederacy, since she came t<
New York, about a month ago, ha:
been living very quietly at the Nev
York Hotel. As she is not over
strong she had to decline the man,
social courtesies offered her and see
only a few intimate friends. All he:
time has been devoted to superintend
ing the memoir of her husband
which will be published about th<
first week in February. It will be ii
two volumes, the first containing
about 750 pages and the other abou
1,000, altogether about 300,000 words
Mrs. Davis does not intend to retur
to the old place at Beauvoir, nor t<
iaise anything on that farm next sum

w~here her eldest daughter lives, an<
spend the summer there.
A great many farmers in the coun
ty after disposing of enough cotton t<
meet the demands against them, con
eluded to hold for better prices. Th<
market, however, dropped, and con
tinned dropping until some becam<
price would go still Doi
having the nerve to hold longer
while the price was down to the vera
-bottom, but those that held right on
can now feel encouraged as the mar
ket is brightening up.
'Cotton is in demand again, and buy
era are searching around for invest
ments. When this is the case, the price
usually goes up,because the greater the
demand the greater the competition
From all parts of this county we learn
that farmers are holding cotton, ani
it has been estimated that there arn
*about three thousand bales lying ir
the farm yards unsold. When th<
market gets so that a farmer can sel
his cotton at a living price, the cottor
will be placed on the market, and the
proceeds will go towards buying sup
plies for the present year, thereb;
turning loose a good sum of mone'
with our merchants and making busi
ness better in every way, but as long
as these people are forced to keei
their cotton in their yards it amount<
to the same as if thie money wer<
(oeked up inan iron safe. The pro
Queer of the cotton cannot use it, no:
~ gy one else. The excuse for hold
ing will we hope soon be a thing a
the past, as the manufacturers wan
the cotton, and the farmers want th<
goney. We hope both will soon ge
what they want.
The Poultry Show.
We spent last week in Charleston on buE
jness and pleasure combined, and to sa;
that we enjoyed being away for a few day
from the cares of a bustling office like th
Toms is putting it mildly. Of course 'w
took in the poultry and pet show. Tb
110,000 dog was a red irish setter, mediui
in size, and, to the novice, ordinary in ap
pesrance. We saw several huge St. Bei
nards, weighing more than two hundrei
pounds, that we would have much preferrei
having. There were all kinds of dogs
from the little poodle that looked like:
small bundle of hair, to the huge mastij
. whose bark sounded deep and loud. Ther
was a wild cat on exhibition that attracted
considerable attention. Then there wer
squirrels, and rabbits, and doves, and pig
eons of a hundred kinds, and all kinds o
ducks, and geese and turkeys, and guineas
and chickens. We were surprised at th
large size attained by certain kinds of chich
ens, ducks, geese, and turkeys. Why ne
raise these large fowls in this county.]
san be done, and it looks to us as if ther
would be money in it.
On East Bay we found everything busy
The~ merchants and factors are prepared fc
a big business this season. There is, ho~
ever, a get scarcity of cotton seed meal
The artie ths year is very infenior, and
since "U~ncle Ben" said he is going to be s
strict, and if the guano did not come up t
the guarantee he would put somebod;
in the penitentiary, there is little inclina
nation to handle cotton seed meal this year
Our farmers will have trouble in getting i1
so they had better select some other guani
to take its ace.
Our friend, Moses Levi, was a conspicu
our, figure on East Bay, and his trade wa
eagerly sought for by the various wholesal
houses. He bought three hundred tons fo
cash, and thereby secured such low rate
that he willbe able to sell here just as cheal
as in Charleston, and still make a sma:
profit for himself. A man with the capitL

GEN. BONHAM'S SHORTAGE
Over Five Thousand Dollars-Report of
The examination of Gen. Bonham's books
has been completed. Expert George Sym
mers, who was engaged sevend days ago to
go over the books and accounts in the Ad
jutant General's office, has worked indus
f triously upon them and last night completed
his work and submitted his report to the
governor. After detailing various financial
matters, he concludes with the following
summary, showing the deficit to amount to
$5,528. The following figures are taken
Amount appropriated 1889...... $14,000.00
Checks issued during November
and December, 1890, to military
companies and paid the Caroli
na National Bank, as per re
ceipts on file in the office...... 8,472.00
Balance to be accounted for ...... $ 5,528.00
The $5.528 shortage is itemized as follows:
Check not yet issued but due the
National Guard............... V2,724.00
Checks issued and not yet present
ed for payment............... 948.00
Checks issued but protested...... 1,400.00
Balance that should be in bank,
but is unaccounted for...... 456.00
t Total....................... $5,528.00
From this statement it is seen that Gen.
Bonham's deficit is double the amount it was
a expected to reach.
3 Gen. Bonham's Explanation.
The News and Courier of the 17th inst.
t publishes the following statement from Gen.
M. IL Bonham:
To his Excellency B. R. Tillman, Gov
ernor of South Carolina-Sir: Through the
kindness of Gen. Farley I have been shown
a copy of a letter addressed by him to you
upon the subject of the disbursement by
me of the fundl in aid of the militia for the
year 1890. It it is the purpose of your Ex
cellency to make the same public, I beg
that you permit the publication of this
statement along with it.
3 It has been the custom in the Adjutant
f General's office to draw this fund from the
treasury and deposit it in bank and issue
checks against it, which custom was fol
lowed in this instance. Frequently, as you
3 may perhaps know, these checks are held
back by the ccmpanies to whom they are
sent for months, but when presented are
paid by the Adjutant and Inspector General.
- Under the stress of circumstances of a na
ture both painful and delicate, and which,
. therefore, I beg not to refer to here, I had
overdrawn my account at the bank, but had
made arrangements to meet these checks as
3 they were presented; but during my ab
- sence a number of them unexpectedly came
in and were protested for non-payment. As
Gen. Farley states in his communication to
you i went with him to the bank and there
made arrangements to recall these checks
and to pay them upon their return.
This is a frank statement of the case, adi
is not made by way of confee-n end avoid
3 ance, but that if it is your purpose to make,
r public these matters I desired that this
statement should appear also. I know full
well that I must bear the consequences of
my act at the hands of the public, but I de
g sire to meet every one of these outstanding
r obligations, and to that end I trust my ef
forts will not be embarrassed by any pres
ent publication of these matters.
I am, sir, respectfully yours,
