Captain F. II. W. Briggmann
greets his many friends through the
columns of this morning's Times.
The Captain is well knowu to our
people, and needs no introduction
from us; but as he has such an excel
lent restaurant we tin tight it would
not be out of place to hint to our
friends to drop in and take a plate of
oysters, &v. His place beats any
thing of the kind in Charleston.

Who is it that docs not know this
gentleman, by reputation at least ?
It was he who kept us from dying of
anxiety during the weary days of
South Carolina's dual government, by
his full and 'complete reports to the
Ne/rs and (jfturt'er of the events then
transpiring in Columbia. It will be
remembered that "J. K. B." furnish
ed us each day with tho proceedings
of Bond's Court, the mimics of the
Mnckoy House, the attempted legis
I lation by the Senate, and tho lofty
j and dignified hearing of the Wallace
! or constitutional House of Rc.presen
I tatives. '1 hh was heavy work, and
j how "J. K. B." got over bo much
ground upon such short legs is enex
plicable to us. But ho did it, and
who is it iu Orangeburg County
that would not like to shake warmly
by the hand this enterprising repor
ter, and bid him a God-speed. He
is now in attendance- upou Judge
' Cook's court.
Accommodation that is not accom
modation is that practised by the
poutli Carolina Railroad. They en
gage to take yon to Charleston and
back on excursion trains for ono faro
of $3 50. Thi% is thought..to be,a
great point with impecunious persons,
but you can go to Charleston and re
turn any time for the same price,
On the regular passenger train, the I
faro io ride in a second-class car to
Charleston and back is $8 50. The
same kind of cars arc run on the
excursion trains. There is no dif- !
ferciice in the price. It is only in

A. J. E. Mingo, Lewis End?, Mt-lch

for grand larceny at the May term of
the court for this year, and wore tried,
but a mistrial (in their ease having
been reported by the petit jury, the
matter came jup again on Thursday
The defendants were represented
by Know!ton & Wannamaker and
! the State by Malcolm '. Browning,
j Esq. Judge. Knowlton's speech is
spoken of as ingenious, eloquent,
and effective. After an exhaus
tive effort on the part of Mr.
Browning for the State, the case was
given to the jury on Thursday about
one or two o'clock 1*. M.. which sat
the day out and all of the night fol

"not guilty" as to all the defendants

"lleavcu lies about u.s in our iu
faiioy,"? ? Worthworlh, And, on the
oilier bund, the. world lie about us
when wo grow older. Did ? ur read
ers ever think how willing people are
to speak just as bad as they can of
others, though when they themselves
get into some little trouble, they are
a.-toni>hed if others speak of them,
just as they have done of others all
their lives. "Ci: ctinistauccs alter
cases," and people bcldom think ol
other's feelings, but are ready nt all
times to put the worst possible mean
ing to everything in speaking of the
unfortunate. While Heaven Mioylie
about us in our infancy, everyone
knows that almost everyone elso is
ready to lie about us us we grow older.
Suth is human nature, and Mich has
it always been. What a world this
would be would everyone mind his
own busiucss. What a world this
would be would each have more
charity; put themselves in their
neighbor's plnco, and, when speaking
of others, tell the truth, neither add
ing to or taking from what they know
is the truth. And then how ugjy it
is to be showing the blackness of
your soul by retailing lies from bouse
to house. "I wouldn't do so and so,"
whereas if the truth could bo pub
lished you have done worse. Women,
too, fair ns some of them are, are
newsmongers and liars, and their
houses "the way to hell, going d > wn
to the chambers of death."
It is with pleasure we call the at
tention of our people to the double
column advertisement of the South
ern Calendar Clock Company in this

know we have dealings with gentle
men that arc recommended as high

Fngman that the whole force which
has been working iu this Section fir j
the past ihice months, introducing
this populur clock, will remove their i
headquarters'to Blackville, S. S., the \
j^cscnt week. Mr Fngman and his ;
pIcitFnnt family have become as."our
own. people" during their sojourn
here, and it will be like the depar
ture of old friends to see them leave.
The same may be said of the agents
of the company, who have by their
curtesyaud general cleverness, made
many friends all through this and the
Since coming to Sparta, about
three months ago, this company has
disposed of about four hundred of
these splendid (docks, and we hear
the most favorable reports from them
in every quarter.< We have one in
our office, and onetour residence an I
don't Dee how we could get along
without them. They are easily regu
lated; and give ^us a time-piece that
we. can always rely on for correctness.
And then the calendar is such n
great convenience. V '?y, some
people loose time enough looking at
the almanac in a few years to pay
for a Fashion Clock.
From the tone of the press of oth
er sections' in regard to this compa
ny and their clocks, we were 1c 1 to
speak in very high terms of both
when they first made Sparta head
quarters; and we haven't goto word
to take back. For business tact,
sobriety and gentlemanly benring we
have found all of them to'come up
to the highest standard. They arc
Southern raised gentlemen; the
company is a Southern institutiui,
and they work for permanent repu
tation iu their section. It is quite
different from the work of Northern
adventurers, who from time to time
swoop down on our unsuspecting
people, gobble up a fortune by Fomo
humbug, and then hide away up
North again, out of reach, when re
dress is sought.
Wi heartily commend the rep re
seid a lives of this company to the
people of our sister State, and can
assure them that they can find in
their Superintendent and his excel
lent corps of travelling agents gen
tlemen in every sense of the word
courteous, clever and reliable on the
transaction of their business, and
well calculated to become popular iu
the social walks of life. We only
hope they may make as many friends
everywhere as they have in our town
The company has most favorab'e
testimonials from many of our best
citizens, which, when the list is more
complete will he published.
