cluded not to delay any longer.
We had the heaviest rain here
the jOlh, tilt., that we have had
since spring, which was very ac
ceptable, though we have not suf
fered liom a drouth this season.
The farmers say, as far as I have
heard, that the crops in this section
are in an excellent condition,
thought the cotton is smaller than
usual at this season of the year and
the corn prospect is not Haltering.
The comet that is visible soon
after sunset is creating some in
terest ; some think there arc two
as it is seen west of north in the
early part of the night and cat of
north in the latter part ; others that
il will fall into the sun and so in
tensify its heat by adding fuel to
it, that our world will be consumed
bv its flames, or will strike our
earth and destroy it.
Among the ancients comets were
supposed to be precursors of some
great misfortune such as famine and
pestilence j therefore, they were
regarded with superstitious terror.
The fear of a collision in more
modern times made them formida
ble objects ; the discovery of this
great rarity has dispelled that fear.
A collision would probably do lit
tle injury to a solid body like our
globe, however latal it might be
to the coinut, as its matter is vapor
or gas cxcecdinglysthin, so the
present writers or astronomers
teach. The eclipse of the moon
caused quite an excitement here
among the colored people. One-
old colored woman said, she sat
up all night, "saw her rise, and
she was red, and she was !on r.vA
a setting on a stool and looked
mighty chronicle." They thought
that the day after the eclipse was
to be the day of all days.
We had a very unexpected visi
tor in our village a day or two
since 5 he was not received with n
great deal ot honor, for as soon as
possible a crowd of hunters und a
goodly number of dogs pursued
him, as be was a lawless bear
walking on forbidden ground.
Their ttlbrts were all in vain, for
the bear outstripped hunters and
hounds, and they returned in the
evening, thinking what a pleasant
time they would have had if "it
might have been."
Blackberry hunting is raging
out here. We are preparing to
live sumptuously during the win
ter months on blackberry cordial,
jam and pies.

There were many pleasant faces
und sunny smiles at a social gath

to say that the time was pleasantly
spent, as that is a very common
occurrence for this place.
