the Sunday School Missionary So

will be held next Sunday afternoon
at five o'clock. The teachers and

requested to attend. The public arc
also cordially invited.
We learn that the popular house

a wide circle of relations and person

the business of his employers.
Tub Edisto River at this point is

home manufacturers refused to supply

cents per ounce, and will undoubted

We hear great complaint about
sore eyes. This troublesome and at
the same time painful disease seems
to bean epidemic in the county. Wr
have heard of several cases where
temporary blindness was produced.
The dusty state of the atmosphere
has, doubtless, much to do in caus
ing so severe a type of the disease.
We hear fire has been burning In
the woods in several localities of the
county. In Middle Su Matthews in
the neigborhood of Messrs. David i
Rush, M. T. Keller and J. L. Rush
about 2,000 acres of woods lands wore
burned and four or five hundred
panels of fence. The fire was occa
sioned by the carelessness of negroes
while hunting at night.

Reports from all parts of the coun

An old man fell dead in Mansvillc,
Pcnn., one Sunday night recently,
while sitting in the parlor where his
daughter and her young man were
sparking. It. may bo that the con
duct of the young couple .sickened
the old man and caused his death,
but it will do no harm, and perhaps
much good, to cut this paragraph out
and show it to the old folks who arc
addicted to slicking in the parlor on
Sunday evning when their daugh
ter's beau wants to tell her a great
many secrets, and so forth.
We learn that Dr. E.?Cookc, Presi
dent of Clallu University, will return
to-morrow and that the exercises ol
his College will be resumed on the
7th of October iicx'. Aftern three
months' visit to his Northern home
and friends, he returns to Iiis field of
labor refreshed and better prepared
for the arduous duties of his ofllcc.
Dr. Cookc is doing a noble work lor
the colored race and by an eminently
consistent, course of Christian conduct
has won l oth the confidence of the
colored and respect of the while peo

Sheridan's Classical School, was sent
for on Tuesday night last to attend
Ins mother in her severe illness. We
hope he may be ohlc soon to return
to his post and duties.
Mit. J. C. Tike's store is full of

For the Teeth.?Many of the
powders and pastes now in the mar
ket contain ingredients like pumice
stone, charcoal, &c., which ought
never to bo used for the purpose.
The Saponaceous Tooth Powder is
warranted to contain nothing in the
least injurious, and has no equal for

is perfectly soluble in the mouth, and
contains nothing gritty or rough for

Commissioner Ilaydcn has been at
work during the week on the River
Swamp Causeway, and will soon
have a dry passage over that hither
to wet and rough section of the road.
We learn that the Commissioners are
paying special attention to the loads

in better condition now than at anypc

Ik you have cotton to ^.ell bring it
to Orangeburg, and you will not re

to Orangeburg. Our merchants, ever
alive to the progress of the times, are

advantageous terms as any mer
chants in the Slate. We extend a
cordial invitation to every farmer in
Orangeburg and adjoining counties to

KottTjoun's store is full to over
flowing both with goods and custom
ers. During the week he has received I
large consignments from New York,!
Baltimore, Iloston, Charleston and!
August a, .".iid are offering them low
down?in fact cheaper than they can |
be made ; but when Iiis orders arc to
"sell nt once as we need the money,"
of course he has no alternative, and!
away they go to delighted buyers at|
half their value. Fanners, their
sisters and aunts are advised to call
early and secure some of these un-'
heard of bargains. His Five Cent
Counter, that new idea in the busi
ness world, is replenished eveey day
and articles sold by regular" dealers
at twenty-live cents are found on
this counter at live. No toys or use-j
less things, but good substantial use-!

is kept busy from morning 'tili I
night waiting on customers in this
Ox Thursday morning, between
the hours of 7 nnd 8 o'clock, when
Mr. Fred. Livingston, the jailer, un
tucked the first door on the second
floor of the jail to see if the cells had
been attended to, and while standing
in the door, Adam Green, a colored
prisoner concealed behind the door,
struck Mr. Livingston a severe blow
in the face with his fist. Before he
could recover from the blow, Green
and two others jumped upon him
[dealing blow after blow and attempt
ing at the same time to wrest the
pistol from the .hand of the jailer.
The seuillc continued down the fiighl
of steps to the lower floor where the
door was locked, when Mr. Livings
ton Ii red four shots with the hope of
doing some execution. Already ex
hausted, however, his aim was of no
lolled, and the ruffians .succeeded in
! obtaining the keys, and, unlocking
the door, two of lliein made their es
j rape, the third Mr. Livingston forced
to return to his cell. Several citizens,
white and co'orcd, were attracted to
the &ccno anil made immediate pur
suit, which was followed up until one
of the ruffians was overtaken in Mr.
Pike's stables and brought back,
j This man had a wound in the palm
of his loft hand, which he said was
made by one of I he shots fired by
Mr. Livingston in thoscufiie. Adam

bad character, is still at largo. We

banks of blankets, shawls ind cloaks ;
upon our right on rulers wrc saddles
to supply every horscnan in the
county, and further on, larness for

splendid assortment of hardware was
