SuRIous AOOIDENT.-On Saturday
evening, as Monroe Liston, colored,
w%s bringing a pitcher of sulphuric
ao.d from Mr. A. P. A1iller's cellar, the
K liquid splashed, and part of it went
hto his eye, eating it out nearly to
the brain, besides severely burning
his cheek. His sufrings were in
tense. He is, however, recovering.
A call for a Democratic county
convention, to be held on the 15th
K. of June, appears in another column.
It is hoped that there will be a full
attendance of delegates from all
the clubs. Under the constitution
already adopted, each local club is
entitled to one delegate from the
club at large, and one additional
delegate for every twenty-five mem
bers-that is, a club of less than
twenty-five membors is entitled to
one delegate, a club of twenty-five
members, to two dele;ates, a club
of fifty to three, and so on. Every
club organized since tha adoption
of the constitution is required to
have at least twenty-five members
enrolled, in order to entitle it to
representation in the convention.

day evening, which was at

The members of the corps were in
full uniform, and the epaulets and
buttons and lace flashing in the
light of the chandeliers were a
pleasing accompaniment to the
beauty and grace of the ladies. The
entertainment opened with a grand
march to the inspiring straiirs of the
Cornet Band, after which the regu

Quadrilles, waltzes, lancers, glides,

FEAsTERvILLE, My 23.-Since my
l.ist report the Feasterville Demo
cratic Club has had two meetings
the first of which was called for the
pirpose of reorganizing. V. P.
Clayton was elected president, and
upon being conducted to the chair
by a committee, appointed by the
retiring president, made a very
appropriate impromptu speech.
T. W. Traylor was elected vice
president, W. B. Estee, secretary ;
and J. Hendrix McLane, a member
of the County Executive Committee.
At the second meeting which was
held on the 18th, and was very
harmonious, the following namod
members, J. Hendrix MeL.e, V.
P. Clayton, J. Feaster Lyles, H. C.
Coleman. J. F. V. Logg, Wni. J.

There are four white schools in
the township. One is conducted
by the Rev. J. D. Mahon. Miss
Bettie Mobley, who is perfectly
accomplished, has charge of the one

finement, the third, and Mi- s
Shelton, an amiable young lady, the
fourth. You can easily see, since
there is so much attraction and
temptation connected with three of
these schools, why it is that so
