Am getting very anxio'is to get
away from here. Can't keep that
and my condition off my mind. It
is impossible to get the diet best
suited to me; have to wait some
times till nine o'clock lor breakfast.
Very gloomy to-day. Rained a
cold rain all eveuing. Have been
waiting some time for a clear day
to go to Clinton where I can rest un
til I hear from my application. I
have remained here now until I fear
some permanent organic disease has
taken hold on me. Learn that the
gunboat which passed Vicksburg is
coming to the mouth or the Red
river. Wagons have been ordered
to haul provisions across from the

Sunday, Feb. 8. Haven't heard

The petition from the saloon men
reads as follows:
"To the honorable Board of Mayor
and Aldermen of the City of Colum
bia: We, the undesigned wnlsRey
dealers of the City of Columbia, do
hereby respectfully beseech and
petition you to amend tne ordinance
requiring all saloons and stores
handling whiskey to close at 10
o'clock at night, except on Saturday
night and then at 11 o clock, so as to
read that all saloons and stores
handling whiskey be made to close
at 12 o'clock each night during tne
week. This petition is offered for
the reason that the hardships on
such dealers has been great; their
taxes are as large as ever,' and the
times have been dull and business
poor, so that under the present sys
tem it is almost impossible for a
dealer to make expenses, and we
believe that justice and rights de
mands a remedy ; and, tnererore, as
citizens and tax-payers of this
municipality, we petition you to ex
