FOR THE HERALD.
I am crying, mother, crying;
Ebbs the crystal tear-drop fast.
'Tis no dark Plutonian lying,
But a real genuine blaz.
Lot thine arm, mamma, support me,
Calm thy fears and bow thine ear;
Listen to the awful secret
Thou, and thou alone, must hear.
T,'ough my scared and trembling playmates
Shnw their faces here no more,
And my boyish goods and chattels
Lay all scattered 'round the door.
Though no yelling boys surround me,
Prompt to do their leader's will,
I must show that I can stand it
That I am their leader still.
Let no saucy boy now jeer me,
Mock the lion thus laid low;
'Twas no rival's hand that felled him
Bat a goat that dealt the blow;
Here, then, on my Sunday breeches,
Whilst so busy at my play,
He, who, mad at my restrictions,
Wildly threw his head away.
But he flung his body with it,
In a way that made me feel,
Just as if a mighty cannon
Shot me with a ball of steel.
Seek him! Say that I have told you,
That he'd better leave the ranche;
For as soon as I am able,
I will make him rue the launch.
As for thee, my sapient mamma,
Glorious doctress of the sick!
Make a pepper poultice for me,
Make, Oh! mamma, make it quick;
Give that goat no hay or fodder,
Let him pad the hoof again.
I will let him know what comes of
Giving me this awialI pain.
I am crying, mamma, crying,
Hark! the insulting billie's bleat!
le is coming! Quick-the door mam!
Shut it 'fore it is too late,
AM no more he'll get to battle
1is old brow against this swell;
HtLre you shut it? thank you, mamma;
N,ow, Sir Billie, fare thee well,

Mr. Potter's Resolutions.
Whereas, The State of Marylaud
has, by its Legislature, formally de
clared that due effect was not given to
the electoral vote cast by that State,
on the 6th day of December, 1876, by
reason of fraudulent returns in the
electoral votes from the States of
Florida and Louisiana ; and
Whereas, An affidavit by Samuel
B. McLin, Chairman of the Board of
State Canvassers of the State of
Florida, for the election held in that
State in November, 1876, for-electors
of President and Vice-President, has
been made public, alleging false and
fradulent returns for votes for such
election in that State, whereby the
choice of the people of that State was
annulled and reversed, and tbat the
action of the Board of State Canvas.
sers in making such returns, was in
fiuced by the conduct and promises
of the lion. Edward F. Noyes, now
Minister to the Government of France;
Whereas, It is alleged that a con
spiracy existed in the State of Louis
iana, whereby the Republican vote in
all the precincts of the parish of East
Feliciana and in some precincts of
West Feliciana, at the general election
in November, 1876, was purposely
withheld from the polls to afford a pre
text for the exclusion by the Return
ing Board of that State-of the vote
cast in those precincts for electors of
President and Vice-P-resident, and
that James E. Anderson, the Super
visor of Registration of East Feliciana,
and'D. A. Weber, Supervisor of Reg
istration in the parish of West Fel
icin n, in that State, in furtherance of
that conspiracy falsely protested that
the election in such precincts had not
been fair and frea, and that the State
Returning Board thereupon falsely
and fradulently excluded the vote of
the said precincts, and by means
thereof and other false and fraudulent
action by the said Beturning Board,
the choice of the people of that State
was annulled and reversed, and that
such action of the said Weber and
Anderson was induced and encouraged
by the assurances of the Hon. John
Sherman, Secretary of the Treasury of
the United States ; and
Whereas, The gravity of these
charges, the nature of the evidence
upon which they are reported to be
based and the official dignity and
position of the persons named in con
nection with the said frauds make it
proper that the same should be in
quired into, to the end that the honor
of the nation may be vindicated and
the truth as to such elections be made
known; therefore, be it
Resolved, That a select committee,
consisting of eleven members of this
House, be appointed to acquire into
the foresaid aliegation as to the, per
sons in office aforesaid in respect of
the said election, and into the alleged
false and tradulent canvass and return
of votes by State, county, parish and
precinct officers in the said States of
Louisiana and Florida, and into all
the facts which in the judgment of
said committee are connected with
or pertinent thereto, and that said
committee for the purpose of exe
cuting this resolution, shall have
power to send for persons and papers,
to administer oaths and to take testi
inony, and, in tbeir discretion, to de
tail sub-committees with like full
authority of said committee in every
particular, and with. power to sit in
Florida and Louisiana, which sub
comnlii3ttee shall be committees of this
House, and the Chairman thereof
shall be authorized to administer
oaths ; that the said committee and
sub-committees may employ steno
pr-aphers and be attended each by a
deputy sergeant-at-arms, and may sit
duzring the sessions of this House and
during the vacation, and that the said
committee proceed in this inquiry and
have leave to report at any time.

A Very Valuable Work.
The Picto,ial History of the World, em
bracing full and authentic accounts of every
nation of. ancient and modern times, and
including a History of *he rise and fall of
the Greek and Roman Empires, the growth
of the nations of Modern Europe, the Mid
die Ages, the Crusades, the Feudal System,
the Reformation, the discovery and settle
ment of the New World, etc., etc., by
James D. McCabe. Published by The
National Publishing Co., of Philadelphia,
Pa', Chicago, Ill., St. Louis, Mo., and Day
It is a well-known fact that the great
mass of the people are compelled to rely,
for their knowlege of history, upon the out
line works intended for the use of schools,
which by their nature are brief and only
designed for the comprehension of chil
dren. There has long been felt a genuine
want of a more elaborate History of the
World, covering th, whole period from the
creation to the present da.v, and presenting
in a succinct and entertaining form the his
torv of the various i ations of the world.
This demand we are happy to say is being
met in "The Pictorial. History of the
World," a work which issdestined to take
rank as a Standard History. It is from the
pen of JAMES D. MCCABE, a well-known his
torical writer, who has devoted years of
study and research to the production of this
great work. The book is literally what it
professes to be-a complete History of the
World-for it gives a clear and concise ac
count of every nation that has ever flourish
ed upon the globe. The history of each
country is related separately, and in the
clearest and most comprehensive manner,
and the deeds of all the great actors in the
events of ancient and modern history are
brought before the reader in the most
vivid style. Ancient history is related in
full, and the accounts of the Middle Ages,
the Crusades, and the great nations o
modern times, are equally complete and in
teresting. There is not a dry page in the
book. It is as fascinating as a romance,
and at the same time one of the most val
uable works of reference ever published,
We are constantly called upon to discusE
the great questions of history, and thE
wars and quarrels of the nations of the o
world requires us to be continually refresh
ing our historical knowledge. So man.
discoveries have recently been made, sc
many of the old ideas and traditions hav(
been exploded and shown to be mer(
myths and legends, that the subject of his
tory may be said to be almost entirely new
atd be who was well informed twent3
years ago will find himself unable to dis
course intelligibly upon historical subject
now unless he has kept up with the ad
vance of historical research.
The mechanical execution of the bool
fully sustins the high reputation of th
publishers. It contains 1260 large double
column pages, and over 650 fine engrav
ings, embracing battles and other historica
scenes; portraits of the great men of at.
cient and modern times, and views of th<
principal cities of-the world. The engrav
ings in this book are genuine works of art
and were made at a cost of over -25,000. Th<
great number and high character of thes(
engravings make this the most valuable ar
publication of the century. A prommien
feature of the work is a full History of the
late War between Russia and Turkeyv.
This is the most complete and valuabi
History of the World ever published, an<
agents who take hold of it will reap a riel
harvest. The price is so low that ever,
one can afford to purchase a copy. It i
sold by subscription cnly, and the publisher
want Agents in every county.

Several citizens of Walhalla form
ed a company a short. while ago to
establish a cotton factory. They
have just got the machinery and
begun operations on a small scale.
The Keowee (Walhalla) Courier thus
I speaks of it:
The Westminster Mills have two
spinning frames with 264 spindles,
one.fourth of which are not yet run
ning for the want of some necessary
equipments.. They expect to. start
them soon. They are now turning
olt from 22 to 24 bunches of yarn
per day and expect, when the other
spindles are started, to exceed 30
bunches per day. They employ
eight operatives, seven females and
one male, which will be ample to
run all the machinery. They started
with only one experienced hand,
but all the operatives are now well
up to their business. They have as
intelligent and neat a set of em
ployees as we have ever seen, all
appearing to be healthy and in
good spirits. The company have
built several neat tenement houses
and a cotton house and everything
looks thrifty and business like.
The cost of the cotton machinery
proper is about $2,500, the build.
ings being a matter of fancy. The
company has on hand about 75,000
pounds of seed cotton, enough to
run them until the new crop. They
will spin annually one hundred and
fifty to two hundred thousand
pounds. To this time they have
spun about 12 bales of yarn which
they retail at 90 cents a bunch
There is obliged to be money in
this business for the stockholders
and also for the county. It is with
in the reach of three or four citi
zens in every neighborhood, and
we would like to see the business
extended. Col. F. E. Harrison
started the first one near Anderson
ville and the Wesminster Company
has now put a second in operation.
The machinery is simple. - This
company was assisted in putting up
their machinery by W. L. Perry, of
Andersonville, and by a man named
Hicks. It will hereafter be easier
to start other mills, as the ice has
b been broken and it is easy to get
men to direct the starting of it.
This company deserves credit and
encouragement for their enterprise,
Tand we hope their example and suc
cess will stimulate others to invest

Sall our seed cotton can be sold and

of appetite, sleep and strength, and a sensa
