THE PROSPECT OF THE CROP.
Of cotton is far from encouraging.?
The' summary of intelligence, sets the
probability at one third decrease. Corn

cotton droops in price. A largoradvauce

year will see the country drained of moneys

in one lot, which was sold by tho gentle
man with whom ho worked last year.?

against one of tho box cars. The un

expletives not lajd down in Webster,
although specially designed for a gentle
man of tho same name. Tho mystery
was easily explained ; the blue jays are

OUR FIRR DEPARTMENT.
There is perhaps iro community of the
same population, and whose young men
are so thoroughly engrossed in business,
that manifests a deeper interest in its fire
deportment, than that of Orangeburg.?
The espbit du corps is not of'that Phil
adelphian,and "Federal Hill" order that
required a conflagration that devastated
millions of property-to maintain a volun
teer fire brigade. Fprtunately for those
cities, a paid department, has lessoned
the numbor of fires, done away with ap
palling street fights, and restored com
partitive peace. Our town has been sin

We urged a short time since, that our
towii could with the proper effort be
made a successful rival of Aiken or a,ny
other resort for invalids.. Since then a
gentleman who has fully acquainted him
self with the properties of our :.climate,
has had a conference" with the view of |
carrying iuto effect'our proposition, viz:
a hotel and conveniences of recreation,
and comfort for invalid guests. Such an
enterprise must prove largely remunera

sirable to our people. And we earnestly ]
hope that the project will be carried out.
