Crops in this seel ion are not as
good as they were last year. Our
farmers seem to be in low spirits, but
we are blest now with showers, ami
all vegetable mailer begins to smile
and why not us? Is it because we
are afraid that we cm not meet our
indebtedness this Fall,or, is it on
account of so much cotton planted,
and such small fields of Corny I
think the latter is the cause; for how
can a man expect to have bread and
meat, uiile^s lie raises it? Can he ex
pect to prospct by raising cotton at
10 cents a pott lid, when bacon is
worth as much per pound as cotton,
and corn from one dollar to one and n
quarter per bushel? This sec ion has
bought more corn and hay this year
than it did the year after Sherman's
raid, and every year will gradually
grow worse by this plan of planting
cotton. Count up the cost and see if
corn, wheat, oats and rice do not cost
less than cotton.
We bad a very interesting series
of meetings in our neighborhood, one
at Hbcky (Srpvo ('Iiureh and the other
at Pleasant (lit) Church. The for

Friend MeSweency of the Hamp
ton Guardian thus .speaks in his pap
er of the visit of the Committee to
Orangeburg last veek:
"On Friday morning we visited
Mr. George Cornel son's store aud
warehouse, where we were taken in
charge by Mi'. Branson (who in the
absence of Mr. Cornelson is superin
tending the business) and shown
through the entire establishment.
The building constituting the store is
of brick, three stories high, and 50
by 100 feet?Mr. Cornelson being a
merchant, doing a business of over
$200,000 per annum, as well as a
manufacturer. We found here every
t hing that a farmer requires from his
merchant, including furniture.
After a rest and refreshment, w?
were taken to the factory and there
turned over to Superintendent Piercd
a Rhode Island man, who thoroughly
understands cotton milling in all its
details, from* the engine room to the
press, where the yarns are put into
compact bales for shipment to New
York, Boston and Philadelphia.
To say that we were pleased don't
do half justice to our feelings, and we
came away fully convinced that the
"world do move'' notwithstanding we
bad left home a little muddled as to
whether it was the sun or the world
that did the moving at the Court
House, being more than half inclin
ed to believe that the Virginia color
ed divine was about right when he as
sorted that "thesun do move," whetu.
er he could prove it or not. We will
leave it to TAe Guardian of the future
to prove to the good people of Hamp
ton the need for a clement attachment
and other progressive improvements*
that will put us nearer even in the
race with our sister counties.
The writer paid a visit to Orange
burg in 1871, ten years since, and
found what we considered as slow A.
town as existed in the State or out
of it, with only a few stores, no hotel,
no enterprise, no life and no nothing.
A greater change we never witness
ed. The place now docs more busi
ness than Columbia our State capital
with eighteen or twenty new build
ings going up, most of them brick
stores, two ami three stories in height
and all due to a few enterprising men
of the town and county, who with Mr.
Cornelson, have succeeded in making
Orahgeburg the pride of every citi
zen of the county aud second to no
eoiiuty town in the State."
