Chester Reconcilition
The gaiety of nations has re
ceived a most grievous wound.
bpIt is known of all the quick if
not the dead in this vicinity
that when times bec,)me dall
entertainment can always be had
by merely throwing a brick into
the camp occupied by the pros
perous towns of Chester, Rock
r Hill, Lancaster and Yorkville,
a Civic jealousy has been entirely
0 unknown among them, jealousy
a- being quite too pale a term to
. describe such a torrential emo
d'tion. No beligerently-inclined
citizen was ever disappointed in
Id any of these four communities if
1s he were judicious enough to say
n something nice about the other
. three. Such a remark inevitablv
, meant quarterless battle. Be-]
[ sides keeping ea2h of the four
towns awake about eighteen
hours out of the twenty-four in
order not to be surpassed, the:
nuardrangular bickering has
been af no small value as an en
tertainment fer both Carolinas.
It now appears that this con
)n dition of things is to pass. Mayor
a. Rodde., of Rock Hill, "journeyed

upon the excellencies of Chester
and the mutual advantages .f a

in courtesy. After they had re
