Our Church Union io Augusta Co., Va.,
has just been bereaved of its pastor, the
Rev. J W L'fferty, by his transfor to an
other charge. As ba is a son of North Car
olina, it may interest you to know some
thing of his first brief pastorate of two and
a half years. The dissolution took effect
on last Sabbath, the 9th inst. The usual
formal resolutions on such an event, ordi
narily pass away into foigetfulness. But
in this case there exists an abiding interest
and lovo thac shall oont ; nue and be perfect
ed in the world to came. As a preacher,
he has been clear, sound, aud forcible, in
his expositions of the Word of God; faith
ful in rightly dividing it and applying its
teachings to the conscience as to the inner
and outward life. As a pastor, he has
been diligent in attending to the spiritual
interests of each individual, atd the same
teuder, sympathizing friend alike of
tha humblest in the community as to
the most conspicuous, And iv the
administration of these duties of his office,
his life has manifested that his greit aim
was to be assimilated in all thing* to the
example of our Divine Redeemer. Tho
earlier period in this church's history itsstate
was very peaceful; but for some years it has
had sore trials, and its present condition of
peace and advancement is au attestation of
the ble33ing of God npin the work of his
serv.aut which we fail hope and pray may
not he obliterated by tha evil one More
could ba said, bur, we send t.he3o few words
es a sincere and just tribute.
A Woodstock Boy Perpetrates a

Woodstock Virginian says: —

Tho controverted question in the caaa, and
to which the argument, in the naio, was
directed, was whe'her, tinder the contracts
made in 18-tS, between John Williams and
A. T. Caperton, the estate of John Wil
liams is now entitled to oue-third of the
gross or one-third of the net proceeds of the
sale made to Camden, the amount involved
bemg about $15,000, with one-third of
which Williams' estate would have to ba
charged in case tbe Court should hold that
he was entitled to one thiid of the net pro
ceeds only. Taxes, costs, &}., paid by Cap
erton, whilst he held the lands, made this
difference of ab >'r.t $15,000 betweon the
gross and net proceeds of the sale."
The court decided that Williams was en
titled to one-third of the gross proceeds.
The case was theu referred to a commia

It seems that Mr. Witiiams waa on bis way

without, any provocation emasculated him.
The uegtoe3 made their escape, leaving
their victim to suffer in tbe road. The
friends and neighbors of Mr. Wiiliam3 are

Shout Sellino ou Options on Wheat.
: —Some years ago when illegitimtite trading
la bteidstaffi and provisioos was more dis
cussed than has bsts the ess-* of lite, w3
embraced the opportunity to present the
vfewi of the conservative and experienced
observers of such matters, especially us to
tha effect producsd n ;t ouly at tao scats of
trade aud commerce, bat also as it concern
ed the iatetiof producer and miller. Very
ofte-i our formers have realized tha sing.:
lar foot, that the demand for wheat wis ac
tive without tha leiat agination raspeeii:!>r
an ad ranee in price?, but oould not, trace
(be cause for taob a re-att. Most general
ly it, Uas hyea supposed Mitt options t ent
ers had the effect only of spasmodic imv,,
raonta or cessation of activity in prices c .n
--troQing the real as wall a* tha option ot
marginal ttutaacttaM wh ; c'* did aot move

that result was only far a season.
Ths great Mioneap .lit miller, Mr.
C- ; ; l-' A. Pillsb-iry, writes a letter to
Bcidstrtefs whioh appears in that journal
of the 12' h lis -.:•!, i.i it pr.j-o ■ -- s HBe oa*s
viaws aud shows tbat disasters will coutin
ua in after years to follow tha reprehensible
mode whicb has baen practiced.
It sterns to U3 that our producers of
grain, who have a surplus lo sell, should
have the oopo'tunity of reading the views
and conclusions of one who doubtless is
better prepared to investigate this question
of trade thau any other man, —especially as
bis cj-iciusio is, deeply oonsern not only
the future of their toil, bat r.ises the ques
tion as to the extent of tima our agricultur
al industry is to exist under the influences
that have so deeply wronged it.
To the Editor of Brads/reefs.
Sia—l believe that the system which has
come so generally into use in the last four or
Aye yeiirs, of selling grata short, is more re
sponsible for the present low prices or wheat
than all other causes combined. My reasons
for believing this are based on both theory and
observation. The .heory on which I believe it
is, that future sailing was first established an a
raean3 through which a party could absolutely
sell for future delivery wheat he had on hand
or had contracted for; that lately, however, the
mania for short selling has so increased that
probably 99 per cent of the short sales are not
made against actual wheat, but are made by
parties who b9lleve tbey can make money by
depressing the market by selling for future df.
iivery. There may he a sufficient number of
people who believe In wheat, and ara willing
and financially able lo buy ail the legitimate
su plus of wheat at fair prices, but when they
are cal,ed upon to buy millions of bushels Cf
wheat which does not exist and to put up mar
gins on the same they thro»v up their hands in
disgust, aud down go the markets. Thus It in
terferes to t'ua detrimont or the naturai laws of
supply nnd demand.
Now as to observation: I think no oue will
claim that tha crop? ol wheat for the last five
years have been excessive, Tais is proven by
the following facts:
It is well known that almoit every miller,
both lv Europe and America, and every flour
dealer and baker used to carry Inr-te stocks of
grain and flour. If any of these parties now
carry slockd of grain and flour to any extent
beyond their present and actual needs It is the
exception and not the rule.
It is well knoivn that the amount ofwheatin
sight la less to-day than it has been for many
yeirs, and when you take into consideration
the fid that Bu-siii. Austria, Australia and
South Ameriaa had very much lighter crops
ta in usual, and no country in the world hud a
very much heavier crop than usual, it must be
evident that tho stocks of wheat in farmers'
uanda, or the invisible supply as It la termed,
must be lighter than usual. It Is well known
thut the visible supply or amount afloat is
smaller than usual ta dealers' and millers'
If we admit tha above facts, that the stocss
of wheat and flour are smaller than they used
tobe, and tbat tha visible aud invisible supply
is smaller thau usu il, it follows of course that
the consumption during the last Aye year 3 hai
been larger than tha production.
All statisticians substantially agree as to the
following facts:
First, That the amount of wheat raised dur
ing the last five years haa not been as large as
was raised during the five years previous,
S ciud, That the consumption of wheat
during the Sanaa time haa baen much larger.
In the meanwhile prices bave baen ruling
much lower. There 1. no question In my mind
that ehort-salllui is largely responsible for
rhis condition of affairs. It usad to ba a com
mon thing fir grain dealers and millers to buy
their stocks of wheat when the farmers were
parting with their crop very rapidly, just after
harvest.aad carry tha s.ame over until the m-xt
soring or pummer, and this was almost always
done at a profit,, lint since this short-selling
mania has struck almost, every speculator In
the country the man who do ,s this thing is
sure to lose money Of course there will bo an
end to this sima'.ime, but the question is
whether the farmer will not be about wiped out
before this relief comes. When it does come
ir. is likely to. b9 rapid and violent. In the
raeanwblla I cannot escape tbe conclusion
that, short sailing is now aad has baen for the
last five years the cauae of the ostremeiy low
prices that we have scan from time to time.

Finishing up the sowing of oats and grass
seed anil the planting of corn, as well as the
general activity on the farniß, has restricted to
some extent the delivery of wheat and other
products usually marketed at this season oj
the year.
The upward tendency of wheat during the
past two weeks has been maintained, and we
quote good wheat higher now than It has been
duringthe season. The circumstances govern
ing our own market, though a small one com
pared with larger centers of trade, is about
tho same as these which govern other
markets. There are two causes which have
stimulated prices and that may continue to
hold good, and, if so, will cause a
advance during the balance of the season. One
cause Is the need of mii'ers everywhere for
good wheat, aud Ihe generally accepted opin
io; et the parti .1 failure of the growing winter
wheat In its maturity. Tho advance, however
wat rnpi.i, and characteristic of other depart
ments of trade in which short or margin soil
ing is practiced. Why prices should have
ruled so low for many months pant when tbe
supplies of the world were known to be short,
and the demand of the purchasing countries
more urgent than previously, was a problem
which was hard to solve, and now that the
long dtlayed reaction h-'S come to pass, Its
permanency may bo established In Increased
growth anil firmness. We quote good wheat
to-day trorn 86 to SS cents.
There appears to be a better feeling in some
of tho loading markets for hay, but only for
prime quality.
