THE LEIPER-DAVIS QUARRIES.
Representing Northern capitalists,
Mr. George G. Leiper, of Chester, Pa.,
has leased the Leiper-Davis quarries,
in this consty. Arriving at Alston
quite recently with a carload of ma
chinery he has commenced the opening
of the Holley deposit and has already
made shipments of this unusually fine
granite to Philadelphia and other
paints in Peansylvania. Mr. Leiper is
a quarryman of lifelong experience,
representing the third generation of
his family who have operated the cele
brated L?ipar quarries at Chester, Pa.
H tvin' bad his attention directed to
the Leiper-Davis quarries he explored
them lait year, carrying h,)me with
him two c;r!oads of sample3. Wtile
the other deposits proved to be of fine
granite the specimens from the Holley
and Martin ledges were foand to e of
ertra fiue quality-the Helley granite
being prononaced the fnest in texture
and c )lor for monumental work ever
offered in the Northern markets-supe
rior to the celebrated Westerly stone
A striking characteristic of the noted
grnuite fields of Fairfl;ld County is
that tha quality of stone improves in a
westerly direction until the Holley
ledge is reached where the grade
shades off to the banks of B:oad River,
the Holley forming the apex of the
angle of quality.
Plenty of capital is behind Mr.
Leiper and the prediction is confi
dently made it there is no disapp oint
ment in the stone as the . ledge is
opened, that the commercial centre of
the granite business will shift from
the rock-bound fields of Massachu
setts to the red hi!ls of old Fairfield.
Mr. Leiper has with him Mr. Phi'.ip
Oglesby, of the firm of Rawtons &
OgIenby, who conduct a large stone
business in Chester, Pa , ant Mr. John
Daroty, qiarryman, wh- has bsen
"plugging" the rocks of Pennsylvania
far twentey-eears. .itr. O4,esby is
'iting up hispolishing machinery and
will cut, polish and engrave the hand
some stone at the quarries.
- Besides being an experienced quar
ryman, Mr. Leiper is fond of the
"Horse, the Hound and the Horn," and
at leisure time will awaken the old
*hills of Little River with the "mnusie
of the chase."
We extend to these gentlemen a
ie'arty welcnme to Fairfield, wishing
them, in their enterprise, a fall meas
ure of success.
THE opening up of the Leiper-Davis
quarries will furnish much needed
employment to local labor; already a
number of hauls are gettite work
THE -OLD ANDERSON PLACE.
One o'f the most interesting o'd colo
nial houses in these parts is the resi
dence of Mr. Thos. Anderson oni Lit
tie Rivar. Mr. Anderson's family is
the fourth. generation to ecoupy this
handsome old place which was settled
over a hundred and ten y ears ago. The
commodious dwelling, built of brick
and stock, is in a fine sta "f preser
vation, the plastering wi a un 'some
~ ceiling decorations has en reely a:
crack, except that caused by the carth
quake in 1886, and everywhere there
are evidenees of wealth with refine
ment and espicity to eDjoy it by those
who have lived there. From a small
-c'urt in the rear of the dwelling the
ground slopes away precipitonsly to a
creek. Built on the side of this slope
is the garden in thre3 terraces, the
walls of which are ten or t welves feet
- high, made of granite and beautifully
draped writh festootns of English ivy
and trumpet vines. On the upper
terrace shrubbery and flowers are
growing, the two lower being used for
vegetables. These terraces represent
the work of three genesatious; Mr.
Anderson's great grandfather having
built the~ first; his grandfather the
second, and his father the third. A
fourth terrace has been made by the
present occupant on the other side of
the bill, tons perpetuating the wot k of
his ancestors. A section of the wall
of the first terrace is formed by a h,ge
granite boulder, the fuat top of which
is level with the top of the wall. On
this boulder, which forms the fl->or,
stands the smoke-house, built of hewn
logs by ths great grandfather over a
century ago. This smoke-house is
used by Mr. Anderson to-day and the
legs are as sound as when put in the

A GREAT REUNION.
!r. Editor: On our return from old
Fort Johnson and surroundings, as re
lated in my last, one of our ladies
being tired and somewhat sickened by
the ride on the water, concluded she
would not risk another trip at once,
and so returned to our home to rest;
the others of our party decided on a
trip to Fort Sumter. I soon found at
the wharf a neat and trim little naptha
boat, called the E. H. Jackion, on
which we took swift and pleasant pas
sage. As we neared the old fort we
found another larger boat-the Planter
I think-at the landing; so our captain
steamed out beyond and up the chan
nel some distance until the other vessel
moved cut of the way, when we
turned and ran back and were soon
lashed to the pier. Here a new diffi
colty, unforsee. by the passengers,
presented itself, for our little craft
was so lo .th%t to reach the landing
on the wharf our gang plank had to
be laid at an angle of about forty-five
degrees as it seemed to me, and then
the lightness of our vessel, lashed as
it was by the advancing and receding
waves, made it so unsteady that I
was.ac'ually apprehensive of danger,
ecpecially to our feminine genders;
but with t wo men at the foot on the
boat and two on the wharf to hold
the plank s'eady, and plenty of willing
hand4 to aid, the landing wa; SOOn
saccessfully accomplished, indeed 1
believe our women showed less fear
than we of the sterr.er sex, for they
clicmed like they were used to it. Once
on top I realizsd a sensation never be
fo,re felt, for although I had often
passed near Fort Sumter, both in time
of war and peace, I bad never set foot
on the inside, and-in fagt can hardly
be said to have been inside yet, but
on top, for it is not now what it once
was; teno, the brick walls that were
so bat'ered and kno :ked down by
artillery daring- the war have been
rebuilt, so that the exterior looks
somen hat familiar, but the port holes,
which once bristled with big war dogs,
ready to belch forth fire and iron upon
the approach of a hostile ship are now
all filled in with brick, and inside the
walls have been filled in almost to the
top. I don't know what is the plan
contemplated for its completion, but
at present there ace no parapet guns.
Indeed there is only one gun mounted,
and that is far back from the south
eastern wall, and is so arranged as to
command the channel and indeed can
be turned west, south or east as oc
easion may require. It is a monster
of a gun, a short description of which
I made note of as given by one of the
garrison, to wit: a 12-inch breech
loading rifle, 38 feet long, projectile
weighing one thousand pounds and
requires a charge of four hundred and
eighty pounds of powder, can shoot
15 miles, average range 12 miles. The
diameter at the breech is I think
about four feet, and at the muzzle
mu.st be about twelve inches. I was
told by the eams soldier who detailed
these facts to me that by the use of
modern range finding and sighting
aparatus, an objset the size of the
lighthouse on Morris Island for in
stance, which is some five or six miles
away perhaps, could be hit almost
every time, and notwithstanding the
immense weight of the gun, I forget
how many ton's, a child's or lady's
tiny ,band can easily change its po
sition so as to bring it to bear on any
object within its radius, indeed our
woman tested it. There are prepara
tions being made for mounting another
of these monsters. I don't know how
many more are to be in position
when the fort is completed.
But the sound of the whistle ad
monishes us that our boat is ready to
leave, and without seeing half the
points of interest, I who have con
sumed the tiene examining the big
gun and asking questions, must hurry
away. Our women took in more, and
when again safely on board could tell,
me of their visit down to the water's
edge on the west side and of the
shells they gathered, and of their
going down into the msgazine, &c.,
&c., but as is often the case with
them, they were so long getting back
that I feared the captain would pull
of and leave them, but his patience
was eqnal to the emergency, and so
after awhile they wore all safely
lowered into the boat and we steamed
back to the wa-f. More anon.
