ked us why the County Corn

?1i9 optiidonthatthese boards should
be erected is shared by all who
have experienced the loneliness
which never s0 opyresses the lost
traveler as when he -reaches the
potin at which the road forks. and
rids hoth idto indicate the right
direction; aid the matter~is of suffi
cient importance to have engaged
the. attention of our' law-makers.
The Genei1a Statutes contain this
provision: "The Superintendents
of Highways shall cause all the
roads in theirrespective districts to
beposted and nubibered, and. at
eaeh' fork of said roads, a pointer
to be placed declaing the direction
of said Toads." Any Superintend
ent of Highways neglecting to cause
sai .roadto lie posted and nun
bered; and td have pointers-erected
as afdresid, shall be liable to pay
.the sum often dollars for each and
every snchiegleet." This, like the
rest of the iaw'relating to the public
roads is practically a dead letter.
We canot say why the pointers
have not been "placed"; we can say
that tiie Superintendents have left
indor e what ought to have been
dbne. Tliey may be waiting to see
'hether the public highways-will be
dispensed- with, or whether a new
road lai will be enacted by the
next Legislature; or, to take a more
charitable view, they may be ig
norant of the present requirements
of-the law. At all events, the course
that -they -may hereafter pursue,
Swill be a matter of interest to coun

LoDs August 29.-A dispatch
from :Batavia, Java, to Lloyd's
says: h on of Anjier, Tjiringin
and Telokbelong have been de
stroyed by volcanic eruptions. It
also says that all light-houses in
the Sunda Straits have-disappeared,
and that where the mountain of
Kramar formeriygtood the sea now
flows. The aspect of the Sunda
Straits is mch changed and navi
gation is dangerous.
BA'rATrA, August 29.-The tidal
[waves completely ,destroyed Anjier.
Many persons there were killed and
the loss of life among both Europ
eans' ad natives at North Lzntam
was enormous. Since noon ""ester
day everything has been quiet, the
sky is clear and communication
with Serang has been restored. The
temperature fell ten degrees on
Monday, but it is now at its normal
height. The town is covered with
a thin layer of ashes which was so
hot when falling that it killed birds.
Telegraph linemen report that while
they were at work repairing the line
near Anjier early Monday morning
they saw a high column of the sea
approaching with a roaring noise.
They fled immediately without
learning the fate of the inhabitants,
and all the people of the place

report no damage. Our July report
indiexted a decreased yiefd- of cotton:
as- compared with last year of 12 per
cetit., owing to the causes alluded to
above a summary of the responses up
on which this report is based points to
a deereise in yield of fully 20 per cent.
The hot dry days and cool nights
which have prevailed for the past two
weeks have virtually closed the grow
ing season by promoting rust and shed
ding, and nothing now remains ex
cept the bolls already formed to ma
turity. Picking will become general
throughout the district by September
15. -'I he following is the aggregate of
the three huidred and sixty-two re
sponses: Twenty-eight report the
weather during August as having been
unfavorable to cotton, one hundred
and fifty-six favorable, two hundred
and four less favorable than last
year, one hundred and two more fav
orable and fifty-six about the same,
two hundred. and fourteen report the
plant fruiting well and one hundred
and forty-eight not so well; sixty re
port the plant in good condition. and
better than last year; two hundred
and' eight not so good and ninety-four
about the same ; forty-four report
pieking as having commenced and
three hiundred and eighteen not com
meneed; three hundred and twenty
six report injury to plant from drouth,
rust and shedding, and thirty-six no
injury; dighty report. a prospect of a
greater yield than last year, two hun

and sixty-eight about the same.
A.SU ESrIox.-If we may be per
mitted to make a suggestion to our
Georgia neighbor, the Augusta Chron
ide and Constitutionalist, we would hint
to him that he would render to
Georgia a greater service if he could
secure the passage of the stock law for
that State, as. we have it in South
Carolhia, thalf he would do if he were
to line the whole seven miles of the
A ta canal with nagnfleefit cotton
.The stock law is based upon
equity and strict justice to all parties.
Contrary to the expectation of its op
ponents in this State, it is pre-emi
nently a poor man's law, and above all
other laws, it benefits more than any
body else, the poor widow who may be
unable 'to- have rails to split to fence
her crop. In fact, every objection
which was urged against the passage
of the law has been proved, by actual
experiment, to have been fallacious.
All the laws on the statute books of
Georgia hre not worth to the farming
interests of that State half as much
as would- be the abolition of the pre
sent iniquitous and monstrous law
which requires a man to build a barri
cade. around his farm to prevent the
depredation of his neighbor's rasor
back hog. If any Georgian objects to
the stock law the probability is he
wants to let his cow browse on some
'other man's hill,; or feed upon the
crops of a ndighbor whose fence is un
able to withstand the~ attack of his
vicious ox.--Press and Banner.
PosTAL NorEs.-The post office at
Columbia yesterday received 3,000
postaf notes. The notes are hand
somely gotten up, and are for the pur
pose of sending.sums less tha,n a dollar
through the mail, but they may be
used for larger aniounts, if you are
"green." enough to do it. These notes
are always payable to bearer, and if lost
and found the finder can draw the
amount called for. No duplicate will
be issued for a lost note. They are no
safer in even dollars than if you sent
greenbacks in a letter. As far as safe
ty is concerned, the postal note is a
humbg as a convenient risk it is
handy; that is, if.at the risk of the
payee; it is all right with the payer.
In sitding one dollar or more the'
postoffice money order can't be im
proved. on, unless the postal notes are
made payable to order and duplicates
issued for 16st notes. However, as we
have iaot been elected to Congress as
yet, and the gove'rnment has thus far
been successfully- run without any sug
g estions from us being called for, uo
doubf the postal notes will find eus
tomers.-Columbia Register.
NEW ARRIVA.s.-The bad crop
year d1oes not seem to have much
adveree influence upon the popula
tion of A bbeville, for it is increas
ing. Several of our junior married
men have a broad grin on their
countenances. M. L. Bonbam Jr.,
Esq., will -have to furnish shoes for
another boy, it will take another
biscuit for G. H. Moore's second
girl and Chaucey Miller will have
to jump up many a cold night to
wait on his girl. We can see them
now in the eye of imagination.

MESSRs. EDftoEs:: I returned home a'ew
days ago from Glean Springs, health much
Improved from drinking that powerful and
great water. The Srst thoughttlhat struck me
after getting home was to go over to the
depot where tbdNewberry Cotton Factory is
located. and see the progress during my
absence. I found that work was moving
on very rapidly-I might have expected
nothing else, knowing the President of
the faetory. Robt.- L. McCaugbrin, as I
do-he moves every thing in a quiet
manner. that be undertakes, and with speed.
Th is Factory is 204 feet long, 100 feet wide.
and is to be a 10,000 Spind:e Cloth Mill
-Coatractor.1. -1..Davis, Saperinteudent of
building, and C. H. Holbrook, two gentlemen
otligh standing as Factory Builders. Messrs.
Leavell :& Epeers are- the contractors for fur
nishing the granite for foundation and doing
alLgsaite. work.. The Jendation will soon
be completed, and appears to me a power
fully strong .loundation; with the bemuti:al
split granite got near. the Fac:ory. I have
been taught that In bnilding care should
be taken to build on rock foundations,
a.d this Factory is so built. The contrac
tors for furn&shlng the bricks are T. C.
Pool & Co., already they bare 500.000 on the
ground of beautiful pressed brick. The
Stockholders arc all Newberrlans, and very
nearly all iit the corporate limits of town.
It wIll be considered by town and county the
banner factory of the country. This Factory
will add very much to the wealth and pros
perity of Newberry and surrounding country.
I also found on my return that our hon
orable and respected Mayor and Wardens
have purchased a Fite Engine at large cost,
from the La France Fire Engine Co., and
that they have sunk two cisterns full of
water, one in rear Court House, holding
60,000 gallons, and one on Thompson Street,
holding 30,000 gallons water. I have been
told that the Engine is managed by experts.
The fire fiend will find more trouble to set
fire and burn up our beautiful town after
this. Mollohon Block which was destroyed
in my absence is still lying in ruins,
except the two stores started previous to
last fire, by our enterprising townsman Al
fred Crotwell, they will soon be completed by
Superintendent O. S. Wells. In visiting
these stores I pronounce them the most
beautiful stores ever built in this town. I
understand the other stores on block will be
built as soon as briek can be procured. .
From what 1 have seen of farms of th is
county and talks with good many farmers,
the crop is much better than I have seen in
my travels over the up country, I think from
what I have seen and learned, this county
will make fully three-fourths of crop of last
year; some portion of county will make an
average crop. The 50,000,000 of people In
these United States are dependent on far
mers for a living. As soon -as it rains go to
sowing oats till last Oct., and then com
mence sowing wheat and keep on sowing un
til December. The farmers of this county
are not despondent, those I have seen and talk
ed with appear to think from old corn and oats
saved over from last year by growing small
grain largely this Fall, will be able to ran
their fhrms next year and will be able to pay
for their fertilizers and supplies used this
year, and have surplus over to deposit in
Bank of Newberry for safe keeping. Liens
given in this county this year are small.
