An Agricultural College.
We see by the papers that a Mrs. Wal

aceres of land lying in Pickens and An
derson Counties for establishing thereon
an agricultural college. The land is said
to be level and beautifully situated and
well adapted to experiments in agricul
tura-l persuits. It lies Northeast of
Pentdleton seven miles and East of Cen~
~tral six miles. T~he trustees held a
mneeting on the 9th inst., and took the
Snecessary initiail steps towards the es

Tracing a Bale of Cotton.
This is the article that the Obserrer
declined to let e's have la;t week. We
(cmlense it to suit our time and space.
La=t year while Capt. M. M. Buford was
packing a bale of cotton he put a note
in it re(u esting that the manufacturer
into whose hands it fell would notify
him of the fact. The bale was sold last
April to Mr. W. T. Tarrant, who shipped
it to Robert son. Tavlor & Co., of Charles
ton. A week or two ago Capt. Buford
received a l-tter from the Jack4on Con

hail so muich trouble with unripe cotton.

how in the world everything is

clock is watched in distress as its mo

body. We are wrong to drive ourselves
with whip and spur in this way. Each

and we must not we.'r ourselves out by
crowding two (days' task into one. If

BROOKSVILLE, MIss. Oct. 9, '84.
Messrs. Editors:-I s:nv you did not
p)ublish the last letter I se nt you, but it
suited ine very wvell that it should not
be published for a specil reas~on. I
l:esitat'd about sending it and rither
regrette(d it after I did send it. As I amif
writing to you and my subscrip)tlin will
be out November 22nd, I will t'ake this
opportunity to request you to discon
tinue sending it when the time expires.
If I should wish it renewed I can wvrite
to vou in time, but I see the Oserve is
v'ery much commended as the best local
county paper in the State, and a "opy of
it was sent me this week for a special
puripose, I expect to take that paper,
seeing that it fully deserves the reputa
tion it has gained.
SIME ON PR ATT.
P. S.-My subscription for the Vetes
does not expire for about a montlh after
the HERALrD, if I remember right, and
you must do as you choose about send
ing the double paper to me for that
much longer or for half that time.
The letter referred to by our highly
'steemedl correspondent was a lengthy
description in hieroglyphic chirography,
"if we remember right," of a pic nic in
Mississippi. Leaving out the question
of an editor's inalienable right to bring
his waste-basket into use, we considered
our space more valuable than to have it
filled with the said matter-only this
and nothing more. We do "do as we
choose" in our "double paper." Al
though our now more highly 'steemed
correspondent says he is glad we dIdn't
puiblish his letter, he shows that he is
madl all the same-or, he has a curIous
wa*y of expressing his joy-by ordering
his paper stopped. We won't be tnean
enough to retort that if another half
year's subscription depends on such let
ters as that under discussion, otir nIOW
most highly 'steemed correspondeiit is
welcome to the change. Oh, no, we
won't even insinuate such a thing; for
haven't we always given a place in our
columns to "the writer," "S. P.,"' withi
his invariable P. S.? But doesn't hie get
away with us nicely, though? Such a
ood joke. We have to laugh. Ha. ha,
ha ! Ha. ha, ha ! We will tell it before
any body else has a chiance. He saw by
the HERALD AND NEWs that the New
berry Obserrer was very much commend
ed as the best local cotuty paper in the
State,'' and lie would take that paper.
Little did we know when casting that
piece of bread upon the waters that it
would return beftore many days. andl on
Mississippi waters at that. Oh ! S. P.,
thou hast wounded the spirit that loved
thee. But it won't be alwas thus. In
the sweet by-and-bye, when thou art
meditating along the banks of the ma
jestic Mississippi, there will come a
tlood of memories o'er thee, like the
rushing of many waters, carrying thee
back to thy sunny home, and, like Da
vid of old, thou wilt sit thee down and
weep, yea. thou wilt weep, when thou
rememberest all these things. But, fare
wvell !and if forever, still forever, fare

Constitutional Amendments. Th a News
and Courier says :
It is of the greatest importance and should al
ways be borne in mind that the vote for .t-resi
dential electors is a general vote, and that the
entire electoral ticket is to be voted by each
voter without regard to the particular section of
t he State or the Congressional district in which
hec resides. In other words, the voter in the
First Congresional District should vote not only
for' the nominee for elector from the First Dis
trict. but also for the elector from each of the
other Congressional Districts in the Stats as
well as for Fresidential electors from the State
at largi. There shoud be DO mistake in this
matter, for the fall emportance of the comin
election in this State hinges upon the election of
the full Democratic electoral ticket.

An Air-Line from the Mountains to the
Col. J. S. Jordan, of Phoenlx, wrote 1
an article to the Charleston Kews and
Courier on this contemplated new route.
We quote a paragraph :
That outlet is offered by a rail line
from some point on the Charlotte and1
Greenwood Road between Greenwood
and Newberry, to Augusta, and thence,
by river or rail, to the sea. That line
will be built. We can prevent it from
draining the northwestern coulnties of 1
South Carolina into the lap of Georgia
in but one way, and that one way is]
practicable, easy and economical. It is
to open a rail line from the northern
most of these points through the heart
(and county seat) of Edgefield to a point
(say Aiken) on the South Carolina Rail
way. Trhis will bring our entire north
wvestern section, and of course the
Northern and Western States as w"' ,
forty miles nearer to Charleston than it
now is by any line within our State, and
will make that practicable which other-)
wise will be impossible, viz: that we]
shall be tributary to our own queenly
metropolis rather than to any other.

Having spent much of my time ibr the past
three years In and near Albany, Ga., I had
gradually absorbed malaria Into my system,
and my general health was compietely broken
down ; this poison culminated last N'ovember
in a conjestive chill, and I was confined to the
bed and house for fie months; was treated by
the best physicians, by all the approved meth
ods with no benefit; my health was awfully
broken down ; my skin almost as yellow as a
pumpkin ; a thick heavy coat on my tongue ;
no appetite ; and In a miserable fix generally.
I was induced in April last to take Swift's
Specific, and the first few doses convinced me
that it was what I needed. I continued until I
had taken seve:al bottles, and am a well man,
the poison has all been driven out of my sys
tem by Swift's Specfic, and I have gained
thIrty pounds in weight. C .CAK
