Since our good old,city-by. the sea first
commenced her municipal career, which
was, as wo are informed by ari: pld and
reliable citizen, nearly .203 years ago?
"St. Patricks"-day, (the 17th March) lias
been among the" lilost prominent holidays,
and a day dear to - tho heart of every
Irishman, only during the war was its
enthusiastic celebration interrupted for a
season, to be renewed.however s.tijl more,
joyously in time of peace. The blessed
old saint Vftioeo personal history, like
that of moat other (divinities is shrouded
in a .veil of;mystery?lived about A, -D,
372, anel is said to have built several re
ligious bouses, outside of this, little is
known of him, eccept, that some one once
8aid he drove all the snakes out of Ire
laud, but as neither the snakes nor St.
Patrick are hereto testify, this statement
must be received with caution.?1
The Hibernian element is pretty strong
hers, findlVPot" isTnoVonly always fendy.
but always determined^-to have a good
time, whenever a chance occurs. Tho
old gentleman him&elf, old St. Patrick,
would have been delighted at the dis
play which was gotten up in his honor
on Monday lust, four clubs of Irish Rifle
men, with much music, and many flags,
paraded through the streets, making- a
nautical display, which did credit to its
organizations, while solemn service, with
a discourse concerning the saint, took
place in tho Cathedral. . And in the
evening great was tho culinary arrange
ments, for your dry St. Patrick is not
tolerated, (tftd dpep and overflowing are
the cups quaffed to his biessed: memory.
What the Shutzcnfcst is to a German,
St. Patricks day is ,to n native of the
Green-Isle; tho only difference-being,
that "Old Rye" carries the one, while
?'Lager" conducts the other.
The Music Loving portiofi of our com

well performed even by professional*.?

The days of glass-cutting with the dia

close. The most wonderful "glass man"
has lately "turued up" in our town. lie
uses a litilc tool ^ery similar to the old
"diamond cutter;" but ih plhco of the
stone is a small wheel, which, as it re
volves, separates ibe glass, much more
effectually than the old process. Com
plete circles of glass, as well as every
vai;t,y of figure, are mado almost as rap

Farming as a Business.
A man who is not smart enough to run
a store is not smart enough to run a farm.
Farmers are not to,be .maderoUt of wblit
is left after lawyers, doctor?, ministers
and merchants are sorted and picked out.
And if a man fails on a farm he is not
likely to succeed in a store, for it requires
more talent to be a thriving farmer than
to be an average merchant. The one
great failure . is the disproportion . be
tween a man's farm and his capital. A
farmer's capital is skill, labor and his
ihonoy. If he has little cash, lie must
haveinb Jhbre linti tbah he can thor?ugh
ly manage by his personal labor. Every
acre beyond that is an'encumbrance.
One acre well worked is moro profitable
than twenty acres skimmed over. It is
this greed of land by farmers that have
ndt the capital td work it; that keeps so
many poor. Small farms are better than
iarge ones, simply becauso they are bet
ter suited to the capital of common far
How, Ho Earned A Wife.
BY MART GRACE iiAf.PlJtf.
"And so you want to marry my daugh
ter, young man ?" said farmer Blif kius,
reihoVirifg the pipe from hirf' mouth nnd
loxddng at'the young fellow sharply, from
head to too.
Despite his rather indolent, effeminate
air, which was mainly the result of his
education, Luke Jordan was a fine-loo!i
ibg fellow,*and not easily n^bVed'from his
self-possession, hut he colored and grew
confused beneath that sharp, scrutinizing
'..Yes, sifY I spbkb to Miss Mary last
evening, and she?she referred me to'
The old man's face softencdl
"Molly is a good girl?n very good
girl," ho said, stroking his chin, with a
thoughtful air, and she deserves a good
husband. What can'you do ?"
The yquug?man looked rather blank at
this abrupt inquiry.
"If you refer to my ability to support
a wife, I can assure you?"
*T know that you uro a rich man,Luke
Jordan, but I take it for granted that
you ask my girt to marry you,' uot your
property. What guarantee cap you give
me,.iii case it should be. swept away?as
it is in-thousands of instances?that you
could provide for her a comfortable home ?
You hnve hands and brains?do you
kuow how to use them? Again I ask,'
what can )*ou do ?" . ,
This was a stylo of catechism for which
Luke was quite unprepared, nnd he star
ed blankly tit the questioner without
. '*I believe you managed to get through
college?have you any profession ?"
"No, 6ir; my father thought that, with
the wealth.I should inherit; I shoal., not
need any." ' -
"Your father thought like a fool, then.
He'd much better havo given you some
occupation and cut you off with a shil
liug?it might havo been the making of
you. As it is, what are you fit for ??
Here you are, a strong, able-bodied man,
twcnty-foiir years old, nnd never earned
a dollar in your life! You ought* to be
ashamed of yourself."
"Now, I've given Molly as good ad
vantages for learning aa auy girl in town,
and she hasn't thrown 'em away ; but if
she didn't know how to work, she'd be no
daughter of mine. If I choose; I could
keep more tban one servant; but I don't,
uo more than I choose that ray daughter
should be a pale, spiritless creature, full
of dyspepsia, and all manner of fine lady
ailments, instead of the smiling, bright
eyed, rosy-cheeked lues she is: I did say
that she shbuld hiariy ho lad that had
beeu cursed with.a rich father; but she's
taken a foolish liking to ye. and, I'll tell
ye what I'll do; go to work, prove your
self to be a man ; perfect yourself in some
occupation?I don't caro wlidt, bo it be
honest, then como to mo, and, if the girl
is willing, ebo is yours." ?
As the old man said this, he deliber
ately knocked the ashes out of his pipe
against oue of the pillars of the porch
wbVre he was sitting, tucked it into his
vest pocket and went into the bouse*
Pretty Mary Blifkins was waiting to
sec her lover, down nt tho garden gate,
their usual trysting place. The smiling
light faded from her eyes as she noticed
his sober, discomfit ted look.
"Father means well," she said, as Luke
(old her tho result of his application.?
"And I'm not suro but what he is about
right," she resumed, after a thoughtful
pause, "for it Seems to mo that every
man, be he rich or poor, ought to have
Then, as she noted her lovers grave
look, she added, softly:
"Never mind, I'll Svaitfbr you. Luke."
Luke Jordan suddenly disappeared
from his Accustomed haunts, mdch'to fhe
surprise of his gay associates But,
wherever he went he carried with him, in
his exile, these words, and which were
likoa tower of strength to his soul: "I'll
wait for you, Luke."
One pleasant, s?iish'iney morning, late
in October, as farmed Bliftihs Was prop
ping rip the grftpo vibe, in tfee front vird;
that threatened to break down with tho
weight of its luxurious burden, a neat
cart drove up from which Luke Jordan

"Good:morning, Mr. Blifkins, I'uhder?|

some. .Here tliat will suit you.".
"Whose make are they?" inquired the
old man, opening the glfctfcVhe paused by

"Mine," replied Luke, with an nir of |
$ttrdoriable pride, and JL: challenge;any

Mr. Blifkins examined theui.criticnlly,
pne by one.
> "They'll do," he said, coolly, as lie set
jlown the last of the lot. " What will you

. "What I nsked you for six months ago

As Mr. Blifkins mid this; he consider
ately stepped out of the room, and we
will follow hi? example. But the kind
of bargain the young people nmdc can
rendily be imagined by the speedy wed

Luke Jordan turned his attention to
the study of medicine, of which profes
sion he became a useful and influential
member, but every year, on tho anniver
sary of his marriage, lie delighted his
father-in-law by some specimen of the
handicraft by which be won what ho de
clares to be "the best and dearest wife
in the world."
Tho Beginning of tho find.
Practical. Emioratio? and Immi
gration.?The exodus'of laborers from
our Slate to the West continues. A day
or two since, we noticed some twenty or
thirty leaving by the C. and A. train for
Musfcsippi? and we arc informed that
tirtothcr company of about one hundred
and twenty more arc expected to leave
to-morrow. . They are from the counties
of Union, Laurens, and Newberry, and
'go west" for tbo purpose of improving
their couditiou in that moro fertile re
gion, where they can "make a bale of |
cotton to the acre without any trouble."
As an offset to this, wo learn that the
firm of Monteith, McMpster & Co., havo
contracted for thirty whito laborers, for
eigu immigrants, mostly Germans, to be
employed at thestavoand shingle factory
of the firm in the Fork of Richland, and
the immigrants are now on their way to

While the schooner Watauga was run

seven knot breeze a sudden and heavy
shock and jar was felt, and all. supposed
that the vessel had scudded into a sei

of whales were seen close alongside ti
