The pic-nic announced to ocur at
Mr. J. W. Scott's grove under the
auspices of Mr. Pinckney Hipp's
school, on Saturday the 7th, caine ofl
on that day. The^ pic-nic had been
looked forward to by th~e spirited
young men of Larens, Unioni and
Newberry Counties, and with equal
interest and expectation by lier
"Beauty;" and Ichronicle with pleasure
that they were not disappointed.
Early in the day carriages, bugges
and wagons began to drive in, and
persons to gather at the grove at Mr.
Scott's residence which was the seene
of 'his interesting occasion. It will
be impossible to give an account ini
detail or merited praise in eve;ry parti
ular, and it will not do to dilscriminate,
so I must omit some things I would
like to say. I must say the perfection
of the music, instrumental (piano,
violin and accordeoni) and vo zal, reflect
ed credit on the performers and called
forth the highest praise.
At twelve o'clock a magnificent
ovation was served wvhich was unani
mously and spiritedly enjoye d. the fea.M
did honor to the tasteful h<at undier
whose auspices it was served. After
the feast wa.s ove'r the amusements ol
the day were resumed, viz: Blackberry
Pie, or Whipping the Fellow around
the Stump, -Stag Danice, Courting,
Social Chatting, Favorite Game of Mr.
W. C. Cronier, Leap Frog, Courtish
Buggy Rides, and various other social
amusements. At a late hour in the
evening the notes of the music died
away, the noble and graceful forms
faded ini the evening's duskand melted
like dreamns of the past. All was hush
ed at and around Mr. Scott's. I cain
not close this aceount without mention
of th~e cordial hospitality of the citizens
of the surrounding country upon this
splendid occasion, and the good order
observed; I never saw better, and I
must compliment the managers for
their promptness, viligance and excel
lent judgment, Our friend, Mr. J. W.
Scott, also deserves his nined of praise
for the ample preparations made at his
residence for the accommodation of
te pic-nicers.

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 t7erp to pure the worst cases of
dyspepsia, rheumatism, kidney diseases, dys:
entry and diarrhea; 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
ef'ects of time, disease, and labor.
The Ga-many School Pic-Nic
Came off on Wednesday, the 4th of July,
and it has seldom been our privilege to
witness so pleasant an occasion of the kind.
This school is presided over by bir. J. G.
Martin. There had been some arrangements
began for some exercises in the school and a
program had been contemplated, but owing
to the sickness of Mr. Martin's wife, the
school had not met for some days, and the
program had never been completed. We
had hoped to see Mr. Martin take his school
through the daily routine of exercises in
their regular order, but owing to the misfor
tunes as stated above, there was only singing
and speeches by some of the scholars, we
did not get In in time to hear all the speak
ing, only four or five of the boys spoke
after our arrival. Their speeches, we
thought, were well put, with evidences of un
developed oratorical powers.
Mrs. Texie Wilson, with her organ, render
ed the music and gave an interlude between
the speeches. After the pupils had spoken,
Major J. K. Nance was called on fora speech,
and with his usual suavity, responded by
complimenting the children for the rapid
strides they have made in their literary at
tainments, and a flattering compliment to
their teacher, for his proficiency as an in
structor. He said that his own children had
made more progress in five months under
Mr. Martin's care than for any two years
previous under other teachers. Major Nance
closed by introducing Mr. Henry Boyd of
Prosperity. Mr. Boyd catechised the chil
dren a little on the historical events of 1778,
showing why the 4th July in each year is
commlenlorated as th~e birtliday of our inde
pendenee, and is a national holiday. He
then made a brief speech on Southern litera
ture and showed very clearly how important
It is for parents and instructors generally to
keep trashy novels ahid worthless literature
out of the reach of our children and young
people generally, but rather place in their
hands good books of Southern production,
something substantial. en tertaining and true.
I hope Mr. Boyd wilt band i:is manuscript to
ye editors for publieation. Mr. Boyd certain
ly reflected great credit on himseir. We bc
speak for bh'n a successful future. He is
undoubtedly a young man of fine brain and
high attair ments, for one so young and yet
so unfortunate.
Our County School Commissioner, Rev. J.
C. Boyd, was then called on, and responded
in an address of thirty minutes. He spoke
of two difficulties in his way; one was the
fact of having two races to deal witlh which
hae said s a hindering cause; the other was
the very limited amount of money appropria
ted for the carrying on of the free common
schools. Mr. :oyd, I have no doubt, sees
the first difficulty of which he spoke; but he
failed enutrely to show us where the diffleulty
lies. The other trouble is quite manifest,
we can all see thatt and do feel it sensibly.
He gives te average appropriation per
capita, for Newberry County at three dollars
and forty cents ($3.40); which, he says, and
we all know, is entirely insufficient; and re
commends ihat the people do supplement ta
with an amount sufficient to run the schools.
He advises the employment of good teachers
only. Mr. Boyd further said that in his
opinion no one should be allowed to send to
the public schools, who did not pay some.
thing themselves. We think Mr. Boyd is
wrong there, for we all know, (Mr. B. not
excepted) that there are a great many people
in our County, both white and black, who
are not able to pay any thing for tuition, and
that would totally deprive all such of giving
their children any education at all, that
would be wrong, abd to say the least very
uncharitable. He did not speak as having
any hope for the success of our free comillon
Mr. Boyd then eulogized Mr. Martin as a
teacher, in the very highest terms. He
spoke of him as being a ripe scholar, a man
who h'ad educated himself, had acquired his
education at home, had devoted the prime of
his life to teaching, and as having his whole
soul enlisted in the work. A moral man, a
man of brain, and a man who does his own
thinking. And finally said that if Mr. Mar
tin was not present, he would speak at some
length about him. We feel at a loss to
know what more he could have said to Mr.
Martin's credit, had he not been present.
Mr. Boyd then congratulated the people in
having such a teacher. He said much had
been said of late about new methods of
teaching, but that there was much more in
men than modes of instruction. He conclud
ed by advising the patrons not to let their
teacher pass from them.
Mr. Martin then made a few remarks
appropriate to the occasion; and expressed
himself as having no fears for the future of
his pupils. He hoped to see the public school
system a success, and believes that it will at
no very distant day be the pride of the land.
He thanked his patrons for their co-opera
tion which is a great help to teachers, and
thanked the audience for their genteel deport
ment during the exercises. He gave us a
cooter tale, and closed until dinner could be
set. I now come to the part that everybody
Is always interested in-dinner.
The best shade had been selected, and Mr.
H. C. Wilson called out lustily for everybody
who had a basket stuck about anywhere to
bring it there. Strange how quick the
call was responded to, for in less time than
it takes to write it, a long table was spread,
well loaded with the best of viands when,
after a blessing by Rev. Mr. Boyd, a general
attack was made all along the line. The
engagement lasted near an hour when the
attacking columns all fell back, leaving un
mistakable evidences of dreadful carnage.
One poor fellow was heard to say as he re
tired, that he did not fcel one bit hungry.
There were more than 130 people well fed,
and plenty left for 70 more. After dinner
the old people gathered in groups in the
shades, and engaged in social conversation;
while the young folks repaired to the school
house and enjoyed themselves tripping the
ight fantastic. ThLa we celebrated the
fourth of July with as much general enjoy
ment as you ever see in so large a crowd.
