Poisoned with Quicksilver.
Monday night Mr. George Boozer
and two of his children were poisoned
by drinking milk that contained quick
silver. They discovered the poison in
the glasses from which they were
drinking, and by immediately taking
an antidote and producing vomiting
they prevented serious results. Quick
silver was also discovered in milk
given to a negro man. On Tuesday a
negro boy who was living on the place,
decamped, leaving no doubt that he
was the fiend who poisoned the milk.
It is supposed that by the assistance of
an a?sociate he got possession of a' bot
tle of quicksilver that Mrs. Boozer had
in the house.

A Perfect Remedy in 20 Diseases.
I am verging on eighty years, and deem it
my duty to suffering humanity to say that
my long life is due to BRANDRETH'S PILLs
which have been my sole medicine for half a
century. I know the last forty-three years of
my life is owing solely to their use. Your
PILLS saved me many times after the best
medical skill in several States had given me
up as hopeless. I have had many converts
to purgation with BRANDRETH's PILLS, and
have seen them perform almost miracles of
cure. For children, a few doses have cured
measles, searlet fever, and whooping cough.
In all female troubles and weakness I have
never known them to fail. In adult males I
have known them to cure the worst cases of
dyspepsia, rheumatism, kidney diseases, dvs
entry and diarrha; even dropsy, paralysis,
and apoplexy have yielded to a persistent
course of BRANDRETH'S PILLS. In fact I
have found them the true Life Elixir. They
act as continual preventives against the
effects of time, disease, and labor.

Grand Recepttn--Feast of Reason
and Flow of Soul--Every one En
On Friday morning last the proprie
tor of the HERALD issued gilt edged
cards of invitation to his friends, to
meet at the office at 8.30, sharp. This
was done in honor of the completion
of the annex to the building in which
the HERALD, and its fine class of Job
work is printed, and the response was
gratifyingly large. The office. in fact,
was filled, seats being arranged down
the main aisle, between the composi
tors' stands, around the imposing
stoie, and ii every nook and corner
where a chair, stool, or box, could be
insinuated. The large imposing stone
served appropriately as the table upon
which were spread the refreshments.
All being comfortably and quietly
seated, the beautiful goblets-kinudly
loaned for the occasion, by 31r W. T.
'1'arrant--were filled and passeto each
guest. The objeet of the meeting be
ing asked by the chairman. Mr. T. S.
.Ioorman. the proprietor arose. and in
tre mulous tones, stated that he was in
a fin:ncial strait. superinduce"d by the
great expense of building the annex,
and that he had adopted the idea of
calling the wealthy and Influential cit
izens together. and appealing to their
I sympathy for aid. The explanation
had a dampening effect for a moment,
involuntarily however, a large number
of hands sought pockets. while a few
seemed ready to render assistance to
the embarrassed proprietor, with his
elephantine annex. It took another
moment only to show that the proprie
tor had perpetrated a dry joke, and as
the company were pretty dry by this
time. they sipped from their glasses,
and then commenced a delightful sea
son of generous sentiment, a feast of
reason and a flow of soul, the proprie
tor and his pet, the lIERALD, receiving
many compliments and earnest wishes
for its prosperity andeontinued success,
Short and witty speeches were made
by Messrs. T. S. Moorman, Silas John
stone, W. II. Hunt, Revs. Stuart and
Holland, and J. 0. Peoples, L. Sim
kins, C. H. Suber. N. B. Mazyck, Dr.
S. Pope, G. G. Sale, D. 0. Herbert,
J. K. Goggans, R. W. Boone,
andI W. T. Tarrant, even our
faithful colored attache, Hart Cald
well, who for ten years has turned the
wheel which grinds out the news, put
a spoke in the convivial wheel. Sun
dry responses were made by the grati
tied proprietor. If the HERALD reali
zes one hundreth part of the kind wish
es expressed on this occasion, it will
spread into the proportions of the
Green Bay Tree. The whole affair was
replete with happiness,every one enjoy
ing it, the only regret being felt by the
proprietor that in the hurried manner
in which the cards were issued some
good friends were overlooked. Similar
entertainments will annually be given,
when no friend will be overlooked,
A Sniffles Reminiscence.
It was in the delicious month of Ap
ril, 1862, that the old 13th Regt., S. C.
V., under command of the gallant Ed
wards was stationed at Green Pond in
this State. The boys were hungry to I
be led into the deadly breech--and for
rat ions. Soldier:s are proverbially hun
gry. Co. D. particularly so, and no
wonder they were hungry, for rations
were tantalizingly short, and they had
nothing to do but think of imaginary
feasts. Capt. Hunt hearing of a comt
fortable farmer, not far oft, whose
store houses were running over, and
who was reputedl, strange to say, to be
filled with benevolence to the Confed
erate with mUoney~ in his pce,detail
ed Private Sp:rks and myself, with at
two horse wagon to go for him, and
we went. S. dIrove. An early start
was made, the morning air delicious,
andi freighted with the scent of the
yellow jessamine which clambered in
p>rofusion over tree and shrub in ev.ery
direction. We two became confiden
tial, we spoke of love's young dream,
a subject as dear to a Confederate heart
as rations to his stomach. In this way
we journeyed, tilled with past bliss,
and the hope of something ro eat, be
fore night spreadl her sable mantle over
nature's loveliness, and enveloped two
weary, hungry soldiers in gloom. At
length but long before it was looked
for, the house, of which a description
had been furnished us, appearedl in
sighmt. The approach to the honse was
thriough a long avenue, dheeply shaded,
it was a restful, hopeful place, visions
of cookeries floated before our mental
vison,e fet h generous biscuit
duing pie. following each other downi
our throats, and meandering about
seeking app)rop)riate space in .the spa
cious void below. I suggested to my
companion, as my coat had less grease
sp)ots thian his own, and furthermore
had more buttons, and I could bet
ter hide the soiled linen, which was dis
playedl by both, that lie remain to mind
the team while I wvent in to reconnoi
ter. With elastic step I neared the
house, ascended the steps, and saw a
charming woman tripping lightly thro'
the spacious passage. There has ever
been an atlinity between Ine and wo
man, we therefore lessened the space
between us, we dIrew closer, her bright,
penetratinig eye quickly discovered in
the greasy soldier, tihe immiortal, long
lost Sniffles, who though lost to sight,
to memory was still dear. I pass over
the exstatic joy of that meeting. Tfhe
last time I saw lier she was a little teii
year old girl, in the rose bud period,
and now a charmingly developed,ifull
blown rose of a woman. The thought
of that meeting comes over me nowv
with a deliciousness which requires too
many words to express, is it any wvon
der then, that as she led me gracefully
into the parlor, I forgot Sparks
and the wagon. In the parlor were
other girls, and it being spring time,
they were lovely in muslin and ribbon.
My heart melted, my eyes suffused, my
stomach had long since collapsed. I
asked for music. and got "Polly put
the kettle on," anid "Uncle Ned," and
when they came to "lhe had to let the
corn cake be," the girls saw that I was
overcome with eniotion, not knowing
that it was produced from hunger, and
their allusions to tea and corn cake.
The character of the music was chang
ed. I revived, minutes flew on golden
wings, they grew into hours. The uin
mistakable souinds which precede the
approach of dinner, struck my tympa
num, madle b)y the rattle of knives and
forks, the clatter of plates, followed
b)y savory smells of roast, boil and fry.
I[felt trainsported, I floated through the
seventh heaven. I thought of woman
as at ministering angel, and all this
time Sparks was out in the sun, the vi
till spark miay have lied, while I wvas
sparkiing inside, under the combined
influence of woman, muslin, andi sweet
smells. The dinner bell sounded, and
it seemed like the soft peals of a con
vent chime, I could not resist it, I was
always susceptible, and easily led--to
dinner. Going in I found Sparks en
tering b)y a side dloor, the farmer had
rescued himi from an untimely death,
and brought him in. He sparkled with
delight, the dininer was before us, there
was no time for recriminiation, we ate
and were thankful. After dinner the
w'agon was loaded, paid for with an I.
O . U., a little more music, tender
adieux, and back to camp we went. I
have since met that lady, but alas, my
friend Sparks yielded up his ticket of
