there is so much in thc world. But
stead of that, like almost everybody t
now-a-days, they have taken up with

that could be nastier than Moody and
preaching, it is Sankey and his songs.

The hanging of the wretched negro,
Cusb Harris, is to tak* place on the last
day of this month. Sheriff Gaston iu
forms us that he has not yet decided up
on the spot for tho execution. In the
meantime tho condemned man makes a
confession to Mr. Gaston that he alone
devised the murder of Mr. Holloway
and perpetrated it, no one assisting him,
and no ono being privy to the deed. This,
however, is clearly not true, as any sen
sible man may judge who heard tho evi
dence upon the trial-particularly Wince
? Caldwell's. Before thc final hour, Cush
' may probably tell another tale.
" When an ass is going to bray, be al
ways begins by raising his tail, aud he
keeps it extended horizontally as long
as his song lasts. To insure his silence,
you have only to tic a large stone to the
end of his tail, so that he cannot raise it."
Oh ! that public speakers, senators, rep
resentatives, lawyers, and, alas! preach
ers and editors, had tails! Bray an ass
in a mortar and his foolishness will not
depart from him, but tie a reek to his
tail aud you have yoi him.
We have spent a couple of days at Pino
j Uouse lately and we think it decidedly
I the most delightful place in the world
far preferable to the White Sulphur
Springs. And of course it is the po'pie
that make the place. What would even
Paris be without its people ? Please won't
somebody give us some sort of position
at Pine House? No matter how humble,
so it enables us to live there.
But we cannot become reconciled to
tue site of Ebenezer Church, A horrid
sand bed, without even a sprig of night
shade. Tho projectors of this church
must have been raving distracted In
stead of Ebenezer,, it should be called
Sahara. When we went to Mr. Horn's
singing school, we gazed at the sun and
tho sand until we fell into a day trance,
in which the buggy horses out-ido thc
church were changed into camels, and
Mr Horn and his pupils into traveling
Arabs journeyiug to Mecca-whilo the
shady and beautiful home of our young
friend, Armand Etheredge, some 500
yards away, looked like an oasis in the
waste of sand, an oasis in which there
might bo a palm tree, a spring of water,
and a bird of paradise.
We even love the dogs at Pine House!
Yes, even the dog* are amiable and ac
eunplishea. And let us tell you a tale
of one. In fact in those days v. hen men
and women aro so slippery, it is not im
! wisc to turn from them now and then
i and c intcmpiato the faithfulness of dogs.
II will do us good. Our dog is named
I "Monkey*' and he belongs io thc Bettis
household. He is a pointer, and the most
beautiftd one we ever saw. Before ro
tiring up stairs to heil, one of the young
lady guests of the family pulled oil* all
iier '*tbings"-breastpin, ear-rings, brace
lets, sash, necktie, fan, Ac, (Sc., and laid
them on the piano, whore she left them.
Early next morning, while we sat at thc
piano, the ladies not having come down
M >nkcy carno to us with anote in his
monti), in which wc were instructed to
wrap np certain things in paper, put the
parcel in his mouth, and bid him "carry
it li]) stairs to bis Miss." We dill as di
rected, and away sped Monkey up stairs
and delivered his burden. And then bo
came again and again until all the young
lady's things were safely delivered to
her-including the jewelry. Sometimes
Mr Bettis, sen'r., wandt'Syinto the fields
before sunrise without hat orgloves, and
if the sun shines out too brightly before
his return, the ladies of-the family put
his hat and gloves into Monkey's mouth,
who understands his errand perfectly
and bastes away to lind his master ho
matter w herc thc latter may be. So when
you hear of beautiful and useful dogs in
future, always think ol "Monkey Bet
Rea l tho account on our 1st page of the
arrest of ex-Gov. Moses in Charleston.
He is now in jail in Columbia. It is
said that w hile his family live in Colum
bia, in the elegant Presten mansion, he
runs a gaming table in Charleston.
One of the negroes condemned to be
banged-not Cush Harris, but the other
one-was baptized in the jail a day or
two ago.
Our section was visited by a very line
rain on Tuesday last. Previous to this
for some days-the heat had been per
fectly unparalleled.
The inevitable penalty of matrimony
now a-days is twins. And a fearful pen
alty it is! A solemn and terrible warn
ing ! Within the course ol' bia* months,
seven pairs of twins have been born in
our town aud vicinity. Right in our
midst-only ~> days back-two whopping
male infants were dropped from the
heights above. In such days it is cer
tainly tho height and depth of wisdom to
keep on the outside.
" Where Arc You Going To, My
Pretty Maid?"
"I'm going to Oates', sir, she said."
Tiie popular Music House of Geo. A.
Oates, Augusta-the oldest establish mont
of the kind in Georgia or South Carolina
-comes to thc front in this week's Ad
vertiser with a very cunningly devised
card, in which our old and esteemed
friend, Mr. Oates, enum?rales in part
the many advantages ho oilers to thc
public. Mr. Oates now, as for forty years
past, sells Piano Fortes emanating only
fruin the very best makers-Checkering,
Steinway, Weber, Knabe, Hazelton, ?fcc,
tte., Ac.-and sells them as cheap as they
can possibly be bought this side of the
factories And exactly so of Organs. But
to be sotting forth Mr. Oatd' experience
ami merits asa piano dealer, is really
[?ko treating anew of one of tho "over
lasting hills." Our people know him
well and trust him perfectly. And this

ablest papers in tho United States ; and
though a Libera' Republican, it proved
itself in the late i'aign an invaluable
ally for the South-so much so, that Re
publicans have classed it amongst Demo
cratic papers. See the prospectus of tho

Riding thc Crest of thc Wave at Pine
The wave of tho drama-the wave of
plcasuro-tho wave of hospitality-the
wave of good cheer ! This is the wave
upon whose crest wo rode triumphantly
for two days and nights during the past
?week. Pine House was alive with Mr.
R. P. Henry, his pupils, his amateurs,
his musicians. If was delightful, intel
lectual, gay, lippy, sumnioiish. On
Thursday night carno thc School Exhi
bition. Beautiful stage on the spacious
platform of tho depot building. Sides
closed in with bagging. Comfortable
benches a; .1 chairs. Brilliant lights and
tasteful stage decorations. Thrco million
people present, "old men and maidens,
young men and children," beauty, gal
lantry, fashion. Old people-time-strick
en Hatchers, Swcaringens, Etheredges,
Kirkseys, Marshes, dfcc-who we know
had not left their homes at night in a
thousand years. Horses, chariots, bug
gies, extra trains, negroes, dogs, melons,
peaches, grapes, Howers, ice-cream, lem
onade. Lively and witty charades. Ex
quisite tableaux. Stirring recitations.
And last but not least, that inimitable
satire upon shoddy high life in New
York entitled "Our Best Society," in
which young Millers and Wises and
Kirkseys and Smiths and Harrises and
Longs and Lees aud Ivcys and Holds
and Meachunis and SwearingCus and
Lo tts played as if they had been accus
tomed to tho stag-, all their brief lives.
A perfect success; indeed a wondorful
success! Everybody delighted beyond
measure !
And then two days of dolec far nicntc
-waiting for Saturday night and "Ar
mand." And when it (unne, how beau
tiful it was ! Mr. B. C. Ethercdge in the
titlo role-young and handsome, and
playing his intensely beautiful and in
tellectual part with a combined tender
ness and manliness truly admirable
Miss Lizzie Kirksey, as " Blanche," the
true and bigh-souled heroine-lovely in
person, graceful in movement, and
evincing the most intelligent and woman
ly appreciation of her noble and impas
sioned role. Miss Lizzie Sease, a bright
and pretty brunetto of sixteen summers
transformed into " Dame Babette" an
old and wrinkled French peasant-in
many respects the most difficult part,
but rendered with a naturalness, a quiet
and quizzical humor, and an originality
of manner, that betokened very uncom
mon intelligence and aptitude. Mr. ll.
T. Henry as tho Duke do Richclicu-a
crafty courtier, bold, subtle, unscrupu
lous, with but one soil spot in his heart
-love for his daughter-played by Mr.
Henry with a felicity absolutely worUiy
of tho legitimate stage. Mr. Luther
Sheppard, as Louis XV, a weak and
licentious mona?ch ; Mr. Sheppard has a
handsome presence, a voice not only of
rare power, but of rare beauty, and made
the very utmost of a very ungracious
role. Mr. E. G. Crouch, another very
handsome yourie; person transformed
into the aged and dc-repid Duke D'Antin,
a man of sorrow ai.d di appointment,
devoting his lifo t?i .schemes of revenge
n pon the bet ra*, er of his daughter-an
other ungracious role very linc!}' played.
Mr. Joe Kirkley, as " 1 e Sage" a shrewd
and witty atlacheo? thc Duke D'Anthl
the comii- character id' thc drama-given
by Mr. Kirksey willi a great deal of
humor and mock wisdom. Miss Pct
Harris, a little girl of 1:1, as " Jaquelinc,"
a young peasant maiden-as bright and
stuart and ready as if she had been
trained by Lester Wallack. Master
.Josey Lee, a handsome boy of 13, tis
"Victor" the page-a perfect courtier in
miniature-manly ai d graceful and
knightly as a young troubadour. And
peasant maidens, and peasant youths,
and .soldiers, and guards-all young, and
gay, and fit!! >l intelligent animation
And the bright may-pole scone ! Anil
1 ame Babette courtesying to thc king !
And thc tender and mournful scene of
Blanche on thc bier! Ami thc revelation
of Richelieu as tho father of Blanche!
And thc breaking of thc sword by Ar
mand ! And the final reunion and em
brace of Armand and Blanche! Beau
tiful, emotional, intellectual !
And then the band! What arc their
D'unes? Young Armand Ethcicdgu, and
Mr. John Cahill, and Mr. Langdon Miles,
and Mr. Bin Hughes and sometimes Mr.
Frank Betlis and Mr. John Miles They
played charmingly, and wc venerate
them. We venerate all the children of
music. We would tcuderly embrace a
dwarf that played on a corn-stalk liddle!
But the lugh wave has ebbed, and we
have fallon oil' the brilliant crest into the
dat and heavy waters of tho Advertiser
office. Such is life! On tho wave to
day; in the bog to-morrow! We feel,
however, that tisis wave will again conic
to Hood time. And then-especially if
it dows towards Pine Jloutc-we shall
again leap upon the crest and be there !

incertain labor now employed. I annex a few Certificates to show what

learly tn the huhs, it did the work perfectly, much to the surprise and wonder ot"
hose who witnessed it, and without once getting one of order I feel satisfied that
io machine has been introduced into this State that will give more universal sutis

CAPT. T. WATSON.-Dear Sir: Your Reaper cut my Oats beautifully, notwith
ianding tho rough character of the land. Tho Oats were planted in drills and

ret tho Reaper cut them admirably. Yours, dre,
