Pleasant River issues from a
spring on the mountain side. It
trickles down until it meets other
strcatMs tts small as itself. They
unite, and go dancing fjn tlrtur way
as a rivulet.
Its course Is on ward??ever oiuntaYd
until it assumes the proportions of a
river. It Hows through fertile vales
and grassy meadows; over pebbly
bottoms and by rustic cottages*
Little children wade in its waters,
and stiil their miniature boats on its
It continues to llow enlinVy jfor
miles, until suddenly it: falls, some
three or four feet over a ledge df rocks*
The fall of Pleasant Riveris not
a Niagara, but it has its own pie
tu rest} 116 beauty. Instead of the
granite cliffs of Niagara, we see a
pine forest. Instead of rainbows pro
duced by the reflection of the still's
rays on the columns of spray, we
see the vines of the yellow jessamine
climbing to the topmost branches'of
the trees. The song of the mocking
bird is beard above the noise of the
falling water. ? '
A short distance below the Falls,
some capitalist hasei'ected aji exten
sive mill, and will no doubt maki a
fortune, but with that we have noth
ing to do.
We will go on a mile further to the
lit'Je town of I loasuntville, which
takes its name from the river, aud an
appropriate one it is.
The st,roots nro not numerous, but
they are wide and well shaded. The
dwellings are Jllbstly cottages; there
are it few houses of greater propor
tions, and all have wide pnazzas and
tall shade t reci*.
On a retired street, where the
elms rival those of New Haven, is a
particularly pretty cottage. Its flow
er garden and every thing around iti
is in t he neatest order.
Two ladies are sitting on its vine
covered porch, enjoying the perfumed
air. The sun has disappeared be
hind the pities, and a Servant comes
out with a tray, and places it on a
table near them, dust at that mo
ment 11 buggy Stopped at the gate, and
an old gentleman with white hair
and beard, comes up the guidon walk.
Roth holies arose to meet him.
'I am very ghul to see you Dr.
Simpson.' said t ho older lady.
'It is such an unexpected pleasure,'
the young lady said.
''Phis is not a professional visit,'
said Dr. Simpson, 'I do not think
either of you can need medicine, when
you are utbout to partake of such a

'Certainly Mrs. Gray, 1 will not
object to a cup of tea aud a taste of
your nice cake,'
After chatting awhile, the Doctor
said, 'this porch is so delightfully
cool, and the company so agreeable,
I had almost forgotten what I wanted
to say, when 1 came in.

?I am not as strong as I used to be,
and I need rost.'
'1 must have help, and 1 have made
arrangements with Dr. Cole to come
und ?malst me. 1 expect my patients
will rebel at llrst, but after they be
come well acquainted with him, they
will give him the preference.'
'I must beg you Doctor, never to
send that young man to me, I want
some one of more experience when I
am sick, and I tell yoii once for all,
I cannot employ a young Doctor.'
'My dear madam, if every one were
of your opinion there would be no
experienced physicians. How can a
young man become experienced, if no
one will employ him?'
'Pin ning to the young lady he said,
'I do not think Miss Paq'itfe will ob
ject to young Doctors.' .
Yes sir I do, and if I Should he so.
unfortunate as to require medical
treatment, I hope you will send no
j one in your place/
I 'When do yon expect your assist

'To-morrow, or lie may possibly be
I here to-night.'
'J taust be goiug, nnd in n few
"months hence, I will expect both of
you to entertain a very different opin
ion of Dr. Cede.'
Mrs. Gray was the widow of ?
clergyman. Soon after her husband's
death, she made her home in Peas
antvillo, and devoted herself to the
education of her daughter, who was
a child of more than ordinary intel
lect, and Mrs. Gray was fully compe
tent to the undertaking.
The years had passed happily, and
Pansie was now a young lady, as
bright and beautiful as the flowers
for which she was named.
Who does not love the dear little
Pansies. They are the first to greet
us in the early spring; and when we

'I see ah object outside the garden,
I might imagine it to he a fairy, but
its doos not look very elfish.'
?No, that object is too corporeal,
to be a fairy,' Said Mrs. Gray. 'You
will have'to recall your thoughts from
their wanderings, and bring them
back to reality, for bore comes your
old friend Robert Morton.'
'J did not know you bad returned,'
said Pansie, after salutation's had
'1 arrived last night, and am glad
to get home again.'
'I am very.glad to have you back,'
'Are you really glad Pansie?'
'Certainly I nin, just as glad us if
you were my brother.'
'We always iniss^ you when you
leave home,' said Mrs. Cray.
fl did not think 1 was of sufficient
importance, for my absence to be
noticed by .any one.'
'What an humble opinion you have
of yourself. I did not know that
humility was one of 3*011 r virtues. I
hope you have been enjoying your
self. Did you make the ucqunutuuee
of any young ladies?'
'No, I did not. I went on busi
ness, and when that was accomplish
ed, I turned ray course homeward.'
?That was a foolish question for
me to ask,' said Pansie, 'when I know
you care so little for ladies' society.'1
'Have 1 ever been wanting in iny
attentions to you,' asked Robert.
'Oh! no,' replied; Pansie,)you have
always been a dear good brother. We
never disagree, but you and Jessie
are constantly disputing.'
'It is because, Jessie teases me,' and
you do not; and she is too inquisi

Jessie Falkner was Pansier** most

in teasing Robert, just because she
knew it annoyed him.
Mrs. Morton, (Robert's mother)
was the first friend Mrs. Gray made
in Pleasantvillo, aud, their, children
grew up like brother and sister.

* Since the war our people had more
to contend with than any otheoiCoun
ty in the State, f be frauds com

Radicals' and Carpet-baggers was
enormous; the people were crushed
down by taxation. Even'at this pre
sent time, our political condition is
far from being satisfactory. To
make this communication as.short as
possible, T will give the business out
look of this place.
We have Bevern! huge stores, who
keep general merchandise, among
which are two "of t he handsomest and
extensive dry goods stores, kept by
two young ami enterprising gent lo
men. Theodore Kolui and Henry
Mr. < L IL Cornols?n has the larg
est and most extensive store that is
kept in any inland town in the State.
His sales cannot amount to less than
$100,000 per annum, nmPmiiy reach
$200,000. Mr. Cornclson employs
10 clerks and besides about f? porters
and teamsters. This present sea
son he. has already shipped 1100
bales of cotton, and will by the end of
the season have shipped from 0 to
8000 ba.hs. Mr. Gornolsoifs store,
factory und outbuildings occupy al
most a whole square. He has just
completed several brick buildings
intended for :i cotton factory. All
that is wanted now is the machinery.
When the factory goes into opera

bands. Air. Coruclsott is a man of

Within a few days past some very
valuable property has changed
hands. Mr. .1. (..'. Bike purchased a
lot whereupon he will at once erect
a large brick store, and on the oppo
site corner Mr. T. D, Wolfe will also
put up tin extensive brick building.
Another gentleman purchased a large

w.lh the intention of erecting stores.
Capt. Bell has just finished 3 brick
stores, which are all rented.

1 would also mention that there is
a large business done in this County
in making Turpentine and Rosin, nil
of which is shipped from this point
to ('\n\ r lest on.
In conclusion, T would s.'ty we want
enterprising men to come here; where
they can employ their capital to ad

As to their political status, we can
only say, that their political opinion
will make no difference, as long as
they art; law abiding citizens. They
will find that they will be respected
and well eared for.
We have one very peculiar estab

from any Other in any country town.

'to Iveej'i wiitei. M'lic < Oi.Ji. .......
appointed ('apt. A. E. *C ilchrist a
sergeant at arms to eject the tlnrflly

others, he did.
For this discharge of his duty Air,
Evans, after the Convention, sent a
challenge to ('apt. Gilchrist for mor
tal combat, which the latter promptly
and peremptorily declined.
As soon as the circumstances be
eante known, the citizens of Reaves'
Township held a public meeting, in
which they drew up resolutions de
nouncing the conduct of Mr. Evans,
and highly commendatory ofCapt.
Gilt brist for bis action.
One of the resolutions reads as
"Wo heartily endorse the high
