Jefferson Davis has written a re
view of General Wolseley's life of
General Lee. Mr. Davis takes exZ
ception to many of the English Gen
eral's statements, and while not find

of Gen. Lee's military ability ex
pressed in the book, he shows very
plainly that he considers Gen. Wol

leaders unjust and unwarrantable.

Mr. Edward McCrady, .Jr., of
Charleston, thinks the number of Su

creased from three to four. We think
this would be a wise move. We be
lieve that after each term of the court,
when the cases heard are divided up
each j'ustice has about on an ave.rage
of one opinion a day to write until the
next sitting of the court. This is
too much work. How would it do to
let the circuit judges sit with the Su
preme Court, one, two or '.hree, at
each term and alternate, and increase
the Supreme Court in this way ?

of increasing the court, and the most

Engineer Charles Ellis, Jr., of the
C. N. & L. R. R., has finished the
prelimuinry survey of this road and
submitted his report from which we
make a few extracts. He says the
road has been located for a distance
of nineteen miles from Columbia
through Lexington to a point near
The road from that point to Pros
perity is being located. This point
of the road will be fed from the three
townships which comprise what is
known as the Fork of Lexington, and
from Congaree and Hollow Creek
Townships in Lexington County, and
Nos. 9 and 10 Townships in New
berry County. These townships
have about twenty thousand inhabi
tants, with more than 75,000 acres of
land in cultivation, upon which large
quantities of commercial fertilizers
are needed. They produce from
15,000 to 20,000 bales of cotton, and
wheat, oats and corn in proportion.
The report speaks of the fine tim
ber along the line from which no tur
pentine has been cut. Of the inhab
itants it says :
The inhabitants of this section are
generally of Dutch descent and are
industrious and frugal, and it is rare
to see a really poor man among them.

will-be some 30.000 bales. The re
port further says:

The estimated cost of the road,
ready for business, at the present,
price for such work, is $11,000 per,
mile, and Mr. Ellis thinks it possible
that it will be much less.
Along the line of the road great
interest has been manifested by the
peojle. As an indication of this the
townships interested have subscribed
in bonds to the am.ount of $145,000,
besides some $27,000 subscribed by
individuals. With the subscription of
Columbia Township (40,000) there
would be a grand total of $212.000.
Newberry will be asked to vote a
subscription of $10,000 or $15,000 in
orzler to senr the ror'l to this place.
Petitions will be circulated in a few
days to secure the signatures of the
regisite number of property holders
that the County Commissioners may
order an election.
President Moseley is very hopeful
for the early success and completion
of his road. Nevrberry cannot afford
to let the road be built, as we said
some time ago, without its touching
this point, and the road can ill afford
to leave Ne.wberry off the line. It
will be mutually beneficial and the
Iexpense should be shared. The
amount asked of Newberry is small.
President Moseley says if he does
not build the road he will be able to
return the money subscribed. That

One of the' great needs of tle
South, and, in tact.- the greatest need,
is for more si l manufacturing in
stitutions. We have all the natural
advantages for small ind ustries. Fine
timber and plenty of it, is to be
found along the swamps and rivers
of many parts of South Carolina. We
heard only the other, day where a
man in this county had a contract
with a western house to ship it
timb-r in the rough suitable for
wagons and plow stocks and such
things, and hi is now engaged in
cutting this timber and shipping it
in the rough to be manufactured and
sent back to us-in fact this same
gentleman, we were informed, had
just bought a car load of plow stocks
manufactured in a different State.
If these ianufacturing institutions
can make money by having the tim
ber shipped from us to them, why
should there not be money in a fac
tory right at the place where the
timber grows. It does seem strange
that we so long neglected to build
more factories, and not alone cotton
factories. If we ever expect to be.
come a rich and prosperous people
we must build more manufactories,
and not depend entirely on cotton
for our wealth. We do not believe
that cotton growing should be aban
doned, but we should build more fac
tories and give employment to morE
of our people.
There is to be found in this coun
ty fine timber suitable for wagon
and buggies and plow stocks. Wh3

and instead of having these article:

the disastrous earthquake on the 3d
instant at Batrispe, in the district of
Moctezuma, Sonora. by which 150
persons lost their lives. The ear hr
quake occurred at 5.30 p. in. At the
same time volcanic eruptions began
in the neighboring mountains, light
ing up the summits for a long dis
tance. The same afternoon earth
quake shocks were felt throughout
the State. The prediction is made
here by local scientists th.t Mexico
is about to undergo a general seismic
convulsion, and recent records of
earthquake shocks show that there is
widespread volcanic activity from one
end of Mexico to the other. Volca
nic outbreaks are occurring near the

other violent earthquake is reported
in San Jose Mountains, forty miles
south of Fort Iluachvo, in Sonora.
General Forsyth has sent an explora.
tion party to investigate. The party,
just returned from the Santa Catalina
Mountains, report that the canons
are full of water which were bfought
to the surface by the earthquake.
This is a great boon for that region,
as there are thousands of acres of
good farming lands at the base of
these mountains which only needed
water to make them valuable. An
other good effect of the earthquake is
the opening of two large gold veins,
which were discovered in the Santa
t Catalina Mountains at a point where
I the whole side of the mountain slid

He reports the earthquake fissure to
be not less than twenty-five miles
long. It extends from a short dis
tance below Benson to fifteen miles,
below Tres Alamnos. At the surface
the fissure varies in width from six
to eighteen inches. On one side the
earth has sunk several inches. At
places along the crack water burst
forth but afterwards ceased flowing.
The cra:k in many places is ,still
open to a depth of several feet.
From Empire ranch, seventy miles
south of here, a fissure is also re

that when the earth opened water and
mud were thrown to a great height.
One spring in that vicinity went dry
and two others doubka their volume
of water, but on the cessation of the
disturbance the dry spring com

for several years. when the business
was divided, Mr. Williams retaining
the Charleston business with r.

ist, Mr. \Vilcox taking the Augusta
business. This continued until the
beginning of the civil war, n.t w.ich

gestion o' Mr. Williams he ceiri
through the lines (belore they wcre
closed) and remained in the South 1
during the coutest. Various attempt, si
were made to confiscate his property,
and he was proceeded against per
sonally as an alien enemy, all of
which failed-Mr. Williams during
these trials standing firmly by his
old patron and partner. At the close
of the war Mr. Hand being now an
elderly man and wholly retired from
all rctine business went back to
his old home in Guilford, Ct., where
he has since lived. In the meantime
Mr. Willir.ms, as .a Southern man,
-had gone along with the Charleston o
buiness throughout the war, and ei
associated several junior partners
with him, Mr. Hand still leaving all
of his capital in the business entirely
in Mr. Williams' control. Some ten
years since Mr. Williams went per
sonally to Guilford and made his
statement of account, showing a large fi
indebtedness to Mr. Hand for original b
capital and its increase by accumulat- g
ed profits and interest, and funded
the entire amount in his own obliga '

Hand stood by his- friend, not only
refraining from pressing his own
superior claims or seeking any
security for them, but still leaving a
his entire capital with Mr. Wiliams
to enable him to weather the storir.

SriLVER P A TED WAR en. E,Pn
okand aiToancy Artlery,
In returning thanks to you for my miracu
lous cnre of eczema or salt rheum, I deem it
advisable to give you a detailed account of
my case. and as there is. and always will be I
a prejudice against advertised remedies.
you have my consent to publi:h this testi
monial. and :dl inquiries, by letter or in per
son, I will cheerfully answer. I do this that
people who go on year after year paying out
large sums of money to incompetent physi
cians and receive no cure, or even reliet, or
end in filling a premature grave, as was near
lylmy case may be induced to make trial of
the wonderful CCTICURA REMEDI::S.
At the age of three months a rash made Its
appearance on my face. A physician was
called, he said teething was the canse. he pre
scribed some coo.ing medicine, but the sores
spread to my ears and head. Another M. D.
was called. He professed to know all about
the case, called It "King's Evil," and pre
scribed gunpowder, brimstone, and lard
mixed into a salve, but the disease continued.
They could not do anything with it Another
prescribed borax water and flour; another,
linseed poultices. None of them did me any
good at all, but made mIe worse. The disease
continued unabated; it spread to my arms
and legs. till I wss laid up entirely, and from
continual sitting on the floor on a pillow my
limbs contracted so that I lost all control of
them, and was utterly helpless. 3ly mother
would have to lift tne out and into bed. I
could get around-the house on my hands amd
feet, but I could not get -ry clothes on at all.
and had to wear a sort or dressing gown. My
hair had all matted down or falien oir, and
my head, face, and cars were one scab. and
1 had to have a towel on my heat all the
time in the summer to keep the flies off. My
parents consulted a prominent physician and
surgeon here inChicago (the other physicians
before mentionad were or Dundas and 1am
ilton, Canada), he sa d he could do nothing
ror me, that the chances were that I would
grow out of it, or that it would strike inward
ly and kill me in 'ime. He wanted to cut,
the Sinews or my legs so that i could walk,
butI would not let him, for it I did get better
Iwould have no control of them.
The disease continued in this manner until
I was seventeen years old, and one day In
January, 1S79, in the Chicago Tribune, I read
an account of your medicines. They de
scribed my case so exactly that I thought, as
a last resort, to give them a trial.
When I first applied the CUTICCRA, I was
w and ble m scratching myself,
but when i applied 'it I went
mmediately. something. I hatd not dione o
ears, the effect was so soothing. .6
Of my immense stock of Spring ClotIh
ing for men', youths and boys. The
magnitude of my stock has never before
een equaled. My steadily increasing
business and the liberal patronage uponi
e in the past has justified me in select
ing this large and well assorted stock of
Spring clothing. The fantcy and plain I
heviot made in Square-cut Sacks, Cut
way Saeks, and the One add Four
button Cutaway Coat. You v:ill also
ind Serges. Cassimnere, Worst.eds, Wip
:ord and Corkscrews made i- the mall-;
nr as the Cheviot, elegantly made and
trimmed. These garments are guaran- -
teed to tit, and made eqnal to any mer-t
chant tailor garment. I have tax\ed my
best eforts in securing this class of
goods from the best manufacturers int
order to comp)ete with custom work, and
to sell you these goods at one-half their I
price. Many who have h-ad their clothes
made have been patronizing the Empo
rium of Fashion. "Whly?" Because theyi
get as tiue a suit, and will lit ats well,
and better trimmed, and equally as well
made, and at a considerable less lost.
The most important feature is that they
can keep trying on until they can get a
satisfactory fit and run no risk, as they
usually do wheni having them mnade to;
Thlis stock is complete in ever-y style
of Hat that a gentleman can wish for.
Among this stock will be found the cel
ebrated Boston Flexible Stiff Hat in all;
the latest Spring shapes, in the fashion
able shades of Granite, Pearl, Nutra,
Brown and Black, also Pearl Cassime"re
Hats. The celebr-ated Dunlap Stiff Hats
in the latest Sprinlg styles. These Hats,
as well as the Boston Flexible, call Only
be found here as I am the sole agent for
these manufactures. 1y stock of Straw
Hats is so l:arge, and the styles are so nut
merous, that it will be impossible to go
into details. Suffice it to s-iy that it
is complete in every respect in regard to
price and qutality.
My3 businesn this lin has iree
so that I have enlarged this departmentI
ii order to make room for- my la:-ge a- -
so-t ment of Gent's Fine Shoe-s for Spr-ini
aId Summer wear. Among the leading
mnakes the celebrated Bannister Shoes
may be found in all the latest shapes in
Congress, Lace and Low-quarter Shtow.
I have a be-autiful line of Shoes ini ail
styles, Hand-sewed, guaranteed for
$~5.00-the best shoe in the ci[y. Also
the celebr-ated I'otuglass Shoe, warra u t-d
