Their agent, Mr. Hood, reported that imme
diately after receiving his appointment hy the com
mittee, he set out in discharge of his duties, and
visited those portions of the county which had not
before received attention from Bible agents; that
he had been received with kindness by the citizens
wherever he went, and that the poor who were
unable to purchase copies of the Bible received the
donations of the Society with gratitude ; that the
proportion of the destituie in the families which
he visited was about 1 in 15. That he had met
with a number of slaves who could read and who
were eagf r to obtain the word of Truth, and that
their owners in every instance but one without
hesitation, paid for the Bibles desired by their
slaves, and iu thai instance he donated a copy in
the name ol the Society. He farther reports that
there yet remained a small section in the North
East part of the county unsupplied, which he de
signed visiting at an early duy, without farther
cost to the society.

Fexale Loveliness. Female loveliness never
ppenrs to so good advantage as when set off with
simplicity of dress. No artist ever decks his an
g4a with towering fenlhers nnd gaudy jewelry ;
and our dear humn angels, if they would make
good their title to that name, should carefully
aoid ornnnvmis. which properly belong to squnvvs
and Africnu princes. These tinselries m.iy serve
o give efiVcl on the stage or the ball room floor,
but in du'ly life there is no s-.ibsti'u o f.ir the charms
of simplicity. A vulgar taste is nut to be Jinguised I
Ly gold and diamonds.
Paris Fashions.
Summer fashions have assumed a definite form,
but although general rules exist, touch id left to
fancy and taste, in order to vary the monotony of
style and accessories. Formerly but :ew of our
most fashionable motiittn would care to introduce
strongly contrasting colors ; our eyes are now,
however, so accustomed to the mixture of green
and yellow, scarlet, black, she, that we are no
longer slurtled bv the appearance ol the most i
striking contrasts, but, on the contrary, seek them
as most desirable. Thus, if black is in great favor
as on accessory, red has numerous partisans
not the groseillc worn during the winter, but the
real poppy ; chesnut, brown, violet, cobalt blue,
are the other colors generally preferred. Bonnets
are still very small, and the crowns are so com
pressed and thrown back on the nei-k that they
aro almost hidden by the enormous bows with long
floating ends which ornament th m ; the bonnets
are allowed merely to rest on the back of the head,
and are ornamented either with flowers or feathers
mixed with lace and bows of ribbon. The insides
are trimmed with profusion of flowers and Monde.
Some ladies may be seen with immense moss roses
with their leaves, and even peonies in full bloom,
surrounding their luces. Straws especially a
tissue ol straw worked by a new process, which
is sold by the yard are much in vogue ; and it
must be admitted that it is much easier to work
this material into various forms than the original
lancy straw, which requires much skill and dex
terity to lold the many designs now to be seen in
these light and graceful bonnets. It was expected
that we should hear no more of I be pelisses this
summer ; and small manlulets echarjes and some
talmas for children and young ladies were the
only styles ventured upon; but, contrary to the
opinion decidedly given, Usejxfttte, though, it must
be acknowledged, in a lar prettier and more be
coming form, is now to be seen ; it is oolite loose,
and open in front, leaving the bust unconiined,
and consequently without the inconvenience pro
duced by the plaits, or which the former pelisse
was so much disliked. The greatest variety in
the shape of mantelets is now displayed.
Some are completely covered with narrow laces,
placed in cross lines, and a new kind of passemen
terie, of stamped plain velvet upon a taffetas
ground; others of black moire antique, bordered
with a passementerie of blue feathers, between
rows of bhick velvet, and terminated by a deep
lace. Another novel trimming is composed of a
new style of fiinge or passementerie, being a suc
cesion of handsome tassels. The usual number
of rows on mantellet in three. Some ladies adopt
the ruche a la vi'ilr, placed in bias linps half way
up the mnnielet from the other edge. Dresses are
worn with flounces of all description ; as many as
thirty-two narrow frills or flounces may be seen
upon some skirts, but by far the greater number
have been three or five flounces. Poplins iind
toff'itulints are mndo with plain skirts. The
n-jUnces are Irequen'ly ol a uihVrent nature or
texture to th-: rob'1 ; snd we of;en see flounces with
thick satin stripes, cdocd with a narrow fringe,
upon barege skirts. The scarf mantelet is fb?h
ionable this season, but in order that it may to
graceful, it must reach no lower than the waist,
and he qtii'e degnge on the shoulders. It is
trirrmed with one or several frills ol luce in flutes,
edged with fringe or plaited ribbon.
From, the Winnsboro Register.
The Rescue Gras?.
Mr. Editor: The extract bel.ivv is from a pri
vate letter of Col. B. V. Iverson of Columbus, Ga
in reen nee to his Rescue Grass. You will see,
according to his account, that it is the one thing
needlul in the Grass line. Two Agricultural
Journal, The Soil of the South and The Cotton
Planter, both speaks well of it. As an earnest of
Col. Iverson's faith in it, he proposes to refund the
price paid, in every instance, where cultivated as
he direct, if it shall fall short of his recommenda
tion. I hope Col. I. will excuse the liberty I have
taken in publishing this portion of a private letter
to myself.
l nm happy to say that m Rescue turned out
well. It is without mistake, the greatest grass
ever found, and I trust it may do as well wiih you
as here and in Alabama, Louisiana nnd Texas,
l where I have had it trnd. 1 sh ill lie able to fill
all orders. It makes on very rich ground one
hundred and fifty bushels of seed per acre. What
think you of that ? And so heavy, growing 4 ftet
high. We can beat the Yankees to death in the
Hay business, if we wish, nnd give them 2 or 3
tons to start on. We can beat the world with this
grass in fine cattle, mutton, pork, &c. We can
beat gonno with this gras nnd our pen in enriching
our fields. These we have without price, and
these will be out in our fields, not to be made in
barn and stuble yards thence to be hauled out and
spread.
The botanical name of ihia grass is Ceratochloa
Breyiaristata, Horn or Rescue Gross. It is said
lo be n native of the Pacific coast of South America.
Dr. Bichman, whose authority upon all such mat
ters is unquestionable, says of it : "I have not seen
this grass cultivated. It is a native of a soil and
chmite somewhat similar to our own, and merits
our attention from the high encomiums bestowed
upon it."
The italics in the above extract are my own.
If any of our friends are disposed to give it a
trial, the seed can be obtained next month from
Mr. Edward Hope, merchant, of Columbia, who
is agent for Mr. Iverson. The price is five dollars
a peck, or twenty dollars the bushel.
II any of our readers have tried this "Rescue
Grass," they would oblige us, and perhaps "do
the Suite some service," by publishing their ex
perience. m
Withdrawal of the African Sqitadhon
The Washington correspondent of the New York
Times writes :
Senator Slidell, in Executive Session to-dav,
reported from the Committee on Foreign Relations
a proposition giving notice of a termination of our
treaty stipulations, binding us to keep a naval force
on the coast of Africa, to assist in preventing the
Slave-Trade. The ostensible reason for this ac
tion is, that the present force occasions great ex
pense of property and life, and an increased rigor
in the Slave-Trade, wit boat beneficial results.
The reul object is to concentrate a naval force
around Cuba, to overawe Spain ond the Allies,
ntiu pertiap
Trade.
eventually to re-establish the Slave-
Japanese "Progress." The J.ij nncsc seem to
have tiiken to the ways of their enterprising Van
kee visiters with great good nature. At an enter
tainment given by Capt. Buchanan the Governor
ol Uraga at once fell in with foreign observances
in toasting and speechifying. Cant. Buchanan
proposed the health of tho Emprror ot Japan,
which was drank standing, "with all the honors,"
and was acknowledged by the Governor, who in
return similarly proposed the health of the Presi
dent of tho United States. The Japanese, says
the narrator, took their liquor freely, especially
champagne and liquors, greatly admiring the
glassware that contained them, nnd expressed a
hopf that the time was nt hand when iln-y would
be ot liberty to visit foreign countries in steamers
ai-d ships of throe masts. We trust that thir as
pirations in 'he la'.'er reaprcl will m gund tine be
as fullv realised ns litcir florfa til riviluwd post

The Fillibttsters.

the republication of a communication from the'
Washington Union, utterly denying that General j

which it was alleged was fitting out to invade Cuba.
We had hoped this was correct, but, hi ! juts fad
the following despatch from tho gallant general
himself. It evidently is significant ol the truth of
the first numor, or if not, it is merely an admoni
tion for people to mind their own business :
Washington June 17. The Union of this mor
ning publishes the following despatch received by
Hon. H. Harris from General Quitman, in relation
to the statements connecting him with rise filibus

Life in Boston. In the Police court of Boston
on the 14th inst., Catherine Walsh was sentenced
to five months in the House of Industry as a com
mon drunkard. Her two boys were sent to House
ol Correction as vagrants. Her husband has
been in the House of Correction for a year and a
half.
The great bestobative. Fever and Ague
Cured by Dr. M Lane's Liver Pills.
(ttr Mr. Jonathan Houghman, of West Union,
Park County Illinois, writes to the proprietors that
he had suffered greatly Irom a severe and protrac
ted attack of Fever and Ague, and was complete
ly restored to health by the use of Liver Pills alone.
These Pills unquestionably possess great tonic
properties, and cn be taken with decided advan
tage for many diseases requiring invio rating reme
dies ; but the Liver Pills stand pre-eminent as a
means of restoring a disorganized Liver to healthy
action ; hence the great celebrity they have at
tained. The numerous formidable diseases aris
ing from a diseased Liver, which so long baffled
the skill of the most eminent physician of the
United States, are now rendered easy of cure,
thanks to the study and perseverance of the dis
tinguished physician whose name this great medi
cine bears a name which w ,11 descend to posteri
ty as one deserving of gratituiie. This invaluable
medicine should always be kept within reach ; and
on the appearance of the earliest symptoms of dis
eased Liver, it can be safely and usefully admin
istered. 07" Purchasers will please be careful to ask for
Dr. Mc Lanes Celebrated Liver Pills, and take
none else. There are other Pills, purporting to be
Liver Pills, now before the public. Dr. McLane's
Liver Pills, nlso, his Celebrated Vermifuge, can
now be had at all respectable Drug Stores in the
United States and Canada.
