GnArES.?The grape crop is repor
ted to be abundant in some portions
?of the country, and might be made
^profitable to the growers if p opercare
were taken to prepare it for market,
-or to convert the grapes into wine.
With our soil and climate, nothing
^prevents the growing of grapes from
jbecoming an important industry, and
,it is a wonder more attention is not
?ived to the crop.
Cnoi'3.?The crops between Orange
?b?rg and Cattle Creek Camp ground
are below the average for the flection
,ofcountry. Corn will scarcely meas
tire more than half the usural quantity
while cotton is small but well fruited.
Signs of the drougth are every where
?acen, ami even now after all the rains,
the branches aud creeks are still dry.
The farmers here, wc judge, will look
well to the o it crop to supply tho de
ficiency in corn. We hear of other

Death of Mas. Derby.?We re
gret to announce the death of Mrs.
Capt. Andrew Berry which occurred
near Branchville on Friday evening
last after a short illness of two days.
Mrs. Berry bad reached tho age of
seventy five years, more than the
number usually allotted to human life
und this entire period makes up the
record of a noble Christian life,
isiessed with a warm and sympathetic
heart, she was ever engaged in good
works, ministering either to hor fami
ly, friends or neighbors up to her
death. She was a devoted Christian
and exhibited her piety in all the cir
curastancas of her life. Religion with
her was a principle by which she liv
ed and her strong support in the
hour of death. To the bereaved fam
ily we offer our warmest sympathy.
Picnic- Our reporter from the Ebe
nerer neighborhood writes that a
splendid Sundny School picnic was
given on the loth of July at the
church, which was largely attended
by citizens from tho surrounding
communities. Excellent and appro
priate addresses were delivered by
Rev.J. C. Bissell, the pastor, and
Prof. M. C. Connor before the chil
dred of Ebcnezer, Sbiloh and Walnut
Grove Schools, and it is hoped that
the advice gived by these genLlemen
will not be soon forgotten by children
or parents. After the speaking a ta
ble was spread and loaded with every
thing found indie whole catalogue
of edibles, of which all were cordially
invited to partake. The occasion was
one of general reunion between old
friends ond neighbors, which is not
likely to be forgotten soon. The
pleasures of the day wore not ended
until late in the artemoon, when every
one repaired to his home.

Base Ball.?A Match game of
base ball was played last Tuesday at
Lewisvilie between the Junior Base
Ball Club and the Lewisvilie Club.
The Juniors gained an easy victory,
the score standing at the end of the
ninth inning 44 to 14 in favor of
that club. The Lewisvilie boys took
their defeat philosophically and ex
pressed a determination to iry it over
at an early days After the game was
concluded the Lewisvilie Club invited
the visiting club aud their friends to
a collation, which was enjoyed by nil
who participated. During the garre
the Lewisvilie boys "whitewashed"
Uie Orangeburg boys three limes,
which greatly encouraged them, but
to no purpose. Mr. E. N. Scoville
made a home run, the only one made
(luring the game. Mr. B. Frank Sla

shooting match on Monday evening
Mr. P. G. Cannon won the first prize,
Mr. N. II. Bull tho second and Dr.
M. G. Sallcy the third. The silver
pitcher was won by Mr. J. A, Salley.
Death ov Mrs. Webster.?It is
with deep regret we announce tho
douth of Mrs. E. A. Wcbstor, which
occurred ut ten o'clock last Wednes
day night at the residence of Rav.
Dr. A. Webster, where she lived with
her husband. Mrs. Webster was a
native of New Hampshire, and came
to this State some years ago in the
midst of a political revolution to
share the fortunes of her husband
among s'rangers and in a strange
land. Naturally sensitive and refin
ed by a superior education, she was
ill prepared to battle with the stern
realities of her new lifo, and her ex
cellent qualities of bead and heart
therefore were confined to the limited
sphere of her family and immediate
friends. Through all the circum
stances of her life she enjoyed the
esteem and confidence of her neigh
bors, and before them exhibited that
sincerity and candor which is ever a
noble trait of the female character.
In her conversation and daily deport
ment she manifested a typo of piety
that bore the impress of a pure
Christianity too plainly evident to
bo misunderstood. Her end was
peaceful for she died as one that i'ocs
sweet to sleep. Mrs. Webster's re
mains we learn will be interred in our
Row in a Church.?Two dusky
damsels, Lizzy Hamilton and Hager
Brown, while in the colored Metho
dist Church on Wednesday evening
attending a prayer-meoting, got into
a row which for the lime being con
verted the sanctuary into a hellish
pandemonium. Cursing and other
obscene language drowned tho gospel
warnings, while knives and bludgeons
were freely used, adding greatly to
tho horror of the scene. Nor was or
der completely restored until tho po
liceman's whistle reminded the infur
iated demons that there were other
public buildings in town besides
churches. Nobody seems to have
been desperately wounded, save Ha
ger Brown, who received an ugly
gash on the face with a knife. Trial
Justice Glover has taken the matter
in hand, and will investigate it.

For some time past it has been sus
pected that the Republican party in
South Carolina would take, advantage
of the fact that this is the Presidential

the hope not so much of electing their
candidates as of adding strength to
their county tickets. These rumors
have now taken shape, and it is posi
tively certain that n Republican
State ticket will bo placed in the
field. Tho State executive commit
