THE MUNICIPAL ELECTION.
Our people were very much ex
vreised on Monday last over the e
lection for Intendait and Wardens
for another year. Tuere were two
tickets in the field, the advocates of
each striving to elect their men.
One ticket was headed by 11. J.
Gignilliat for Intendant, with the
following gentlemen for Wardens:
A. G. Wyatt, J. N. Ioward, A. M.
Runion and J. B. King. The oth,
er ticket was headed by W. H.
Nix for Intendant, with A. G.
Wyatt, J. N. Howard, C. P. Run
ion and J.M.Rampey for Wardens.
The contest was a heated one, and
great interest was manifested on
both sides. The polls opened at
7 in the morning and closed at 6
in the afternoon. A constant rain
fell all day, but the work of vo
ting di(d not cease. There were 80
votes cast, and the race was a
close one. Tie Gignilliat ticket
was elected, he himself receiving
44 votes out of the whole number
The new council were sworn in
on the morning following the elec
tion, and the great interest exhib
ited in their election, will act as an
incentive to the "city fathers" in
their dispensation or good to our

gentleman, and seems ever ready
to advance the interests of the
South. Read what he has to say:
Easley is a beautiful little vil

lovely landscape of wood and vale,
undulating picturesquely. It is a
thriving place with fresh looking
houses, the most conspicuous and
modern of which is a handsome
