Editor Orangthnry Timm:
The pic-nic on **Ascension Day/1
the 20th ult., nt Pinekney's Lauding,
under the auspices of the Santce
Base Ball Club, to which you wore in
vited and did uot conic, was a suc
cess. Your fricudo would, certainly,
have enjoyed your presence, indeed
your name had actually been "put in
the pot" (if you will allow a kitchen
phrase.) and you have no idea the
good things you missed by not being
prescht. If the remaining portion
left after the immense crowd had
beeen fed ami feast*, d, was intended
as your share, o> be ran*umrd at the
i'ftVe, the Santo? folks have surely
misjudged your c?/?rc/Vj.
To describe the pic-nie grounds
and their surroundings, requires the
pen of an artist; ami such I claim
not to wield. To appreciate the hills
and valleys, the grand old live-oak
trees with their low-hanging, moss
covered houghs, and other natural
scenery iu endless variety, one must
oo there and see, to be thoroughly
convinced of their beauty.
'1 he forenoon wus occupied by the
young ladies and gen'.lcmcn in pro
menading, bout-riding and perhtpt
courting. Your correspondent saw
canoes drifting down the river,- each
boat containing two occupants. They
didn't seem to he alarmed, or anxious
to land?and-hui-the future will tell.
The married gentlemen discussed
the fence law anil crop.v, and the
elderly married ladies, always in
dispcnsible at such plai cs, prepared
for?tinnier. Before it was announced
however, and while the crowd wnsap
patently at rest, a few gentlemen
made a happy hit by inviting to
speak aad introducing to the audi
ence Maj.T. B. Whiilcy who spoke
as only the Majorenn upon such oc
casions. He alluded very beauti
fully to the day we were celebrating,
reviewed in his eloquent style the
political situation County, Stale and
National, and closed with a most ap
propriate and complimentary tribute
to the fair ladies. To an appreciative
mind his speech upon the wdiole was
a rare treat. Next in order ean'i
di niter, f? mmom/, the event of the day.
I will lit say that the tal e 4 roan ad
under its weight of good things, but
the variety ai d quality of the viands
prepared by those Santee and Provi
dence ladies would unquestionably
make a man groun if he lingered too
long, "rmiid the festive hoard." At
Ik o'clock P. M.. the "Sun toe" ami
"Kilthw" Hase Ball Clubs were railed
out by their captains, and after the
usual preliminaries the two "Nines"
entered the held to contest for the
championship. Mr. W. L. DeHay
was chosen Umpire, and at the eio.se
of four innings the score stood:
Santee, 20 runs: Kutaw 20 runs. Mr.
A. B. Parier o." the Sun tec, and
M s .rs. S. C. Moorcr, L. Carson of the
Kutaw made each a clean score of
four runs. The announcement of the
core was followed by the hurrahs;
mil then drinks?of lemonade, Mr.
Editor, which could not be surpass
cd, were freely discussed. This
lemonade feature of the pic nic was
indeed very enjoyable, and theyoung
gentlemen who originated the idea
in I so successfully carried it out de
serve special praise. Fortunately
this ice-cold beverage was dispensed
by married ladies, else the rustic
counter of the bar would have been
ill all probability a little crowded.
Five o'clock, and we saw the last
boat full of excursionists land, the
ladies on board cheering the gallant
oarsmen with the song, "Pull for the

Jamison, while not known as n
place of much importance in a com
mercial point of. view, has ncverthe
le s, pome energetic spirit*, who con
tribute much to agriculture, ami the
success of her more prosper ions
rivals. The crops in this section
arc, say, corn promising; cotton where
it was plante! early is as good as last
year. While there are a few who can
boast as yet of a good stand over
their general crop, there arc many
fanners who have at number of acres
hot up. As a general thing cotton is
about two weeks later than the crop
of last year. Some of our early plan
ters will not get entirely through
planting until in June The oat
crop, while in tome places almost a
failure, in others about a half crop
may be depended upon.
A debating Society has been in
progress here for some time, and every
ihn g nable subject is compounded by
the. old as well as the young seekers
of knowledge. The victories I under
stand, are pretty well balanced,

inscribed upon its folds, ''victory"?

are in most danger of coming lo"

There is u continual low growling iu
the community on this subject.
It is notorious that the charges are
altogether out of proportion to the
time given, the work given or the
consideration neeived, and all kinds
of vexatious obstacles are thrown in
the way of any who seek to efl'ect a
reform in this respect. The fact is,
fiat the ranks of the legal professin?
arc ovcrc.owded and arc being added
to year by year to an extent which
the public, interests by no means re
quii'e. Yet the exclusivencss that
obtains with regards to methods of
procedure, and the striugent rules
imposed upon all the members of the
croft, prevent that wholesome ' com
petition which exists in all other
trades. The consequence is that the.
public arc robbed, and that a com
paratively few of t he members of the
legal profession obtain for themselves
the chief portion of the spoil, while
the great bulk of them struggle on as
best they can. Our legal exchanges
are filled with discussions on law
yers' costs. The community are
bound to have cheeper justice, if
they can.?Albany Times.

On a quiet and secluded spot in this
County, nnd on the dawning of the
beautiful. Sabbath morning of the

that noblo husband, the kind und

and worthy citizen, Mr. Robert
Richards', formerly of Charleston.
Many' here with sad hearts fol
lowed his remains to their last rest

to the quiet grave in Oraugcburg

hisypung manhood and pride, will
likewise heave a sigh and deeply
mourn tho death of this gentleman,

Company who can remember him
while un.olllcer of that Company, and
who by devotion to duty while in the

Richards loved his old home in the
