Of Mr. Miles we will say what lie
could not say of himself that ho is a
gentleman of ability and Mar more than
ordinary culture. 'Before the war he
made one of the best mavors the city
of Chaeleston ever had, and he repre
sented with honor the Charleston Dis
trict in the Federal and Confederate
Congresses. Hie is fully master of his
department, and his executive ability
has already been proven.
le thus speakb of the qualifications
of his associates:
Of Prof. Woodrow It would be
enough that Prof. Joseph LeCoiite
pronounced him "quite as competent
to fill his chair as he (Prof. LeConte)
was." (This was when Prof. L..
after holding the matter under advise
ment for some time, declined to leave
his high and liberally remunerated po
sition in the University of California,
and come to'us-uncertain as to wheth
er our State really was in earnest, as
are all her Southern sisters, in the de
sire and intention to build up the State
i1stitution of learning.) Prof. Wood
row has enjoye(l all the 'advantages of
the best German Universities, .is an en
thusiastic student of science, and wide
ly known for his extensive acquire
ments II those special branches upon
which he lectun'es.
Prof. $lao ia a dlatinguished 'cradu
ate of West Point, where he took very
high rank--among the first in his clas's
-and has been a sucessful professor
in one of our sister colleges.
Prof. Burney, with uncommon zeal
in the prosecution of chemanical research
es, has had the fullest traitadng under
the most celebrated German p~rofes
sors, and has been (in itself a high
testimonial) a Fellow of the Johns
OfPro. Faber, as an instructor in
modern languages, It would be super..
fluous for meo to speak, so widely aind
favorably is he knaown as an adnmirable
and successful teacher- particularly of
German and French.
Prof. Fingerlin, a graduate of a Roe
man college, has the highest endorse
ments as a competent instructor, in
both ancient and modern languages,
and testimonials from many' of our
best citizens, in whose families lhe has
For enabling our students to acquire
practical acquaintance ith planting
and farming, and the methods of culti1
vating our staple crops, we have an
ample area of Iand, where Mr. Con
nors-ourm farmer, an ex perioeed
and skilled agriculturist-gives his
undivided attention to field1 and gar
dlen operations. Here the lectures on
Agricultural Chemilst ry are supple
miented andl illustrated by the test and
comparison of various fertilizers on
growing cr~opa. We do not propose
to make our farm an "experimental
farm ," as that term is usualy uinder
stood, I. e., as a collection of little
minute squares of ground, where cu
r'ious and~ fanici experiments are to
be made; such as Liebig mig ht have
mnade in lpots of earth in his laboratory.
We wvill, rather, aim to teach our
young men, who pr~opose to follow

of our State. Our gifted and distin
gutished fellow citizen, D~r. St. Julien
Ravanol, has demnonstrated by repeat
ed t rials, that sixty or seventy bushels
of oata-and other grain proportion
ately-and from four to five tons of
hay may be raised on one acre of land
-(by p oper treatment an an applica
tion o by no meanas expensive fertil
izers) whtere, without such treatanent
and application, hardly a tenth of such
yield could be had. "tiermuda Grass"
may yet be destined to work a revolu
tion ini oar. agricultural industry. It
is now indigenous to our soil thor
oughly acclimated, indestructible by
winter frosts or summer suns andt
droughts, requiring but moderate care
tonurseitiuntoa luxuriantgrowth, with
which "Timothy" cannot compar. The
marked success which has attended Its
culture, on a large scale, by Governor
Hagood-one of our most enlightened
and editoated and, at the same timce
p)racticai farmers--has long taken this
question of Bermuda Grass hay out of
the hands of tihe experimenter and the
domain of theory. And in this connec
tion I may be permitted to add that
Governor Hagood, as chairman ex

not only a do interest in our frmin

of mAchanics as may prove practically
useful to them as planters or farmers.
When our people shall have become
thoroughly awakened to the necessity

latures of our sister States of the South,
making provisiou herself, in addition
to the Congressional aid by which we 1
are at present solely supported, for en. v
larging the scope of instruction in our

Caro i - an institution of high and
liberal culture, of which her people
may justly be proud, and fir which un A
born generations of her sons will be .
grateful. Perhaps I ought not to con- ,
elude this communication without 1
some allusion to what, I am told, is an
obstacle in our way. I refer to what i
l considered the hostility, or at least 0
opposition, to "a State .College, .i
the part of the local colleges of otur b
State. I trust that this is, if not alto- "
gether An err'oneous, At any rate at) ex- p

LOOK WITH JEALOUSY a
upon any new sister coming to her side a
as a coadjutor in the great task of pop- ~
ular enlightenment? Is there not room
enough for us all to work in our ap'
propriate spheres? Indeed, I think hi
there is room enough and to spare. 1
Our young men are growing up In a to
sadly de1ent state of intellectual de.- ,
velopment and mental training for the 'i
great duties of life. The proportion of ea
tiem i who go to colleges at all 1a very ci
small. I repeat, there is roor, for all
our colleges. Let there be only a g i . -
erous rivalry among us to see how
much each of us can do towards stimu
lating the 46uth of ur State to the dc
sire for, and the pursuit of, that "high
er educabtion," without which a pcoj>le
must inevitably retrograde, not only
in itellectual 'but material progress.
For if there be one thing in the present
age of the world more certain than
another, it is that mind rules not only
the forces of the social and political k
world, but, to an even greater exient, 0
the forces of Nuture. Shonw Ine the 0

best selection and can buy cheaper. Bear in mind that I ship goods to Ridge
wa , Blythewood White Oak, Woodward's, Blackstock, anu as far as Chester
an York. This ?s a recommendation of the quality and price of my goods.

puffed have but little merit. The one you want is the one that will save yol
time and vexation is noiseless, runs light and will last a long time. I have
it. Remember the Eold Medal was awarded to one of the Machines I represent,
ver eighty competitors. I can refer you to many that are using it, and it has
always given entire satisfaction. Remember that I am agent for a Door and
