. BASE BALL.-For 'some: time the
young men .of.our town' 'avo been
discussing thoesubject of organizing a
base ball club, and, ol 'Citosday
evening a meeting was hold in
L t,he Town, Hall for the purpose of
pdrfecting the organization of an
association. -Mr. J. IH. Cum
mings was called to the chair, and Mr.
11. T. Cawford acted 's secretary.
s After discussing several matters of
d importance, a committee was s,ppoint
ed to draft a constitution and by-laws
for the government of the assoctation.
A committee was also appointed to
solicit mmboership. 'Anothe: inept
in g will be hold in the Town Hall this
evening at 8.46 o'clock, when the
f pernanent .organization will be per
fected, and all persons who feel an
interest ii base bill are requested to
f be present and become nembers -of
the association. Winnslioro' has nero
tofore taken great interest in the
iiational gaine, and we fool Wuye that
those gentlemen who have the matter
in charge will make :a. success ot it.
We havo the material to make up a
first-class amateur team, and none but
the b'ebt players will be selected when
the club is formed.. -Keep the ball
A DOUAJLE W DId.
One of the happiest events of the
season occurred Tuesday afternoon,
the 24th inst., at the Baptist Church,
the occasion being a dual marriage.
Thqhappy partids to the contract wore
Misses Bollo and Luclo Boyd, the
charming daughters of our fellow
townsman and popular School Cqm
nissioner, Dr. John Boyd, and Messrs.
Geo. M. Hicks and R. 11. Browne.
t The church had been tastefully deco
6 rated with evergreens and floral de
l signs by the admiring friends of the
parties, itid everything 'wis in keep
ing with the joyous occasion.
At 6.10 p. in., marching"to the tune
of the "Wedding Quickstep," artisti
f cally rendered by 11. N. Oboar, Esq.,
- the parties entered the church; Mr.
Hicks and Miss-Belle taking tho right,
t and Mr. Browne and Miss Lucie the
. left aisle. A handsome arch was sus
pendeded of each side of the rostrum,
and the respective couples took post
tion under these while the pastor, the
t Rev. J. loward Carpenter, oflicially
tied the silken cord which legally
bound them in life-long union. After
the benediction the four who had been
reducel'to two retired in reverso order,
and with a'few friends. repaired to Dr.
Boyd's home,, where an elegant sup
per'was served and a most pleasant
1 evonjng. spent. Many valuable and
- b4auliful presents 'rwere received by
t the brides, and hundrede of hearts i'e
jdiced in their bright'futuro.

l eisri. .Editori: Several persons
madlo inquiries of me about conning.
I haye been engaged in it, and perhaps
can give some information. We have
a cannery at Houston-my home in
Delaware. We can peas, strawber
ries, raspberries, blackboirrles, sweet
corn ; of huckieborries, we ;have put
r up 1,600 cans in one day ; of tomatoes,
22,000 cans ,in a day. We also cami
peachies extensively. The estimated
Sannual requirement of cans of to
Smatons in the United'-States is about
00,000,000. The "tomatoe pack" of
1882 amounted to 55,000,000, of '88
a and '84 at about the same. In '85 it
t dropped ,down to 88,000,000. In '80
B it rose to 67,000,000. The price of
cans in 1877 was $1.70 per dozen, in
S'85, 75 cots; in '86, 90 cents. We pay
fo?tomatoeg $6, $7, and $8 per cwt.
S15 to 20 cents per bushel.
As I am about to leave the State, It
a gives me great pleasure to see the fair
r promise of crops after so many years
of failures, as well as the gradual re
,vival of business in the whole country.
There are many. persons In South
Carolina towards .whom I have a
i kindly feeling, who have done much
g in the past eighteen years to lesson
I the difficulties of a "trying position,"
y and should they visit mo at my home
r in Delaware they would meet a very
e. cdrd[al welcome, and I will showv them
as nice farms containing from 100 to
; 600 acres as can be found in most any
- part of the country.
We have in Delaware the advanitage
I of fruit raising, as our crops are now
t reliable,' and we have New York,
* Philadelphia, Baltimore and Boston
I for markets. In other, respects South
a Carolina stands No. 1. In educational
I advantages I find few places eqtial to
a good old Winnsboro, which has held
a up a beacon light for over a ceaftury.
B May coming deriturles feel its Itiflunce
for good as in the past.

J.ETTBR FROM LYLEM'8 FORD.
Messrs. .Editors: We have had
genial showers all spring. I don't
recollect a more favorable spring for
preparing land for the reception of
seed. Cotton ' i resents a vigorous
color, and stands complete. In early
planted corn, and on bottom corn, the
bud worm has depleted the starid on
the latter, and cold weather the former.
Planters are well up with their c1Jops.
Most of the cotton has been chopped
Wheat promises an average crop,
now rearly matured. Oats are short
in statue, but we hope the late rains
will so improve them that nearly an
average crop may be produced. Gar
dens, though late, are looking well.
Upon the whole crop prospects are
quite favorable up to this date. I
think we need not fear high freshets
or even low ones this summer, as I do
not recollect two consecutive annual
freshets in summer, except the August
freshets of 1852 and '53. Corn Is
looking well, and a larger area planted
in this section than for many years
Farmers are hopeful as to a good
crop the present year, and It is pleas
ant to notice their smile in recount
ing the present 'prospects generally.
So I am encouraged in the fond antic
ipation that the citizens of our county,
if a fair crop is produced, will publish
my "Reminiscences of Fairfield" by
all subscribing to it. . We think -of
sending out an agent soon to eanvaes
our county for subscribers to tlie
work. Old Fairfield possesses too
much patriotism to let this important
work fall of publishing, now that it is
nearly completed for the press, pro
vided we produce. a fair .crop th
present year. The fature respecl
are brightening for the SouL a .if
,blanters ate able to build tar d
and cotton mills, surely they canbny
a history for a mere pittance to inform
them and their posterity 'as to iho
their ancestors were, whether: gen.
erals, governors, statesmen, farmers,
mechanics, lawyers, doctors or preach:
ers of the Gospel. If they were eveun
honest and useful citizens, it would
afford them pleasure to hnve t~er
memories transmitted to later a'es.
They would also wish to know inci
dents of history relative to the early
settlement, etc., etc., of their county.
We wvill await the Issue and see.
P. S.-We were blessed with rains
yesterday, and farmers busily engae
this morning setting out potato sl,
of which there seems to be a plentit i
crop and of vigorous growth. I Sm
