BASE BALL? \
It is vory evident from what the
Branchvillcra have to aay this week, that
(heir Base Ball Club doesn't mean to be
always beaten by the AJrangeburgers.
We advise our boys to be on the lookout.
Let them keep well in practice lest some
fine day the ohampionship be suddenly
transferred to the plucky little town at

"There's an awful dearth of local news

on us and build a new church or start a

We call attention to the notice in
another columu by which it will be seen
that Judge Andrews has been ap pointed
chairman of the Republican party of
this County We endorse fully the
opinion cxprcsod by Mr. KUiott as to
I Judge Andrews' qualifications for this
important position. Since the birth of
the Republican party iu this State it has
had no warmer friend, no siuccrer mem
bor and no more vigorous adherent than
Judge T. 0. Andrews.
Candidates for the vacant Senatorship
are thick as blackberries. Among the
tuost prominent are Ja??* T. C.
Andrews. V. R. MeKiulay, Samuel
Duncan, C. W. Caldwcll J. H. Livings
ton, Dr. J. A. Keller, Beojaroin Hyas,
Hnrpin liiggs, Dr. O'Caiu, and others.
Wo write front tuenaory and may have
omitted the names of some whu would
like to appear in the list. If so, jutt
let us know and we will rectify the matter
Judge Andrews eoems to have the
inside track so far.
The merchants have been jolly this
week. You could see thorn at rho door
of every store in Towu watchiug, with
eager eyes, the numerous bales of cotton
that have been coming iu For the last
lew days, and anxiously wondering
where the owners of the snowy fleece
were going to "'pull up." If a waggon
passed tho dowu Town stores, every
body in that quarter looked miscrahle,
while tho faces </f the up Towuers
I looked like ao many happy half moons?
and vice vertu, if the cotton came in
from the other end of the street. Rut
; enough came to give every ouc a
fair share and so, as we have raid, there
' has been a jolly lot oi merchants hero
I this week.
Considering the dry nature of geome
trical figures?squares, circles, and the
like?our friend S. R. Melliohamp,
K-q., furnifhes a very lively communi
cation upon the question \% to what is
the true shape and form of Lewisvillc.
Our readers will remark that Mr. Melli
champ docs not din put o *tho position
assumed by m iu faVor of tho circular
shape of our sinter municipality.
Wo do not see how there can bo two
opinions upon tho subjeot. The act
deolares that the town shall extend ouo
third of a mile in ear h direction from
II. IIcnnon'8 store.
I Tho centre being determined, it only
remains to inquire how many directions
there are, the answer to which is,
that from any given point there are as
many directions as there arc points iu a
oirclu?and the number of these, as
mathematicians know, is infinitesimal.
A<ad all the Unas ot direction being of
the same length, tho result is, necessa

HON. THOMPSON II. COOKE?
Judge Thompson II. Cooks in enjoying
his summer vacation at Caesar's Head,
in the Rlue Huge Moaotains. In a
private letter to us, hia Honor aaya>:?
"You eao give your readers no better
advice thau to visit this mountain . The
air is perfectly salubrious, and the
aater is unsurpassed in this or soy
other oouotry for ita purity and mine
ral properties. The thermometer,
ng< d ioto the eold spring, descends
rapidly to rorty two degrees. Thie it
oertahJy cool enough." And so' it is,
may it please your Honor; but, with our
mercury lost in the nineties, it awakene
within us most un-christiao feelings of
envy to read of snob cool springs and
delightful atmosphere elsewhere. Here,
we are only about a half degree shert of
the roasting poitit. What will oone next,
Heaven only knows.
W* regret to learn that Judge Cake's
hoalth is not good; but hope that the
oharmiog climate he is now enjoying
may soon rtstore him to his accustomed
strength and vigor.
DON'T ?LISTEN TO TBE HOOKING
A geutloinnn who has been trav
elling iu Virginia recently, in a part of
the country where mint juleps and
mocking birds are plentiful, says he has
often heard those appreciative birds
singing the following soag of a mom
?'Getting late ! getting late !
Get up ! get up! get up!
Ji< lip, iu lip, Ju Hp, J ? lip!
Sweet, iwtet, sweet, sweet, sweet !
Taste, taste, taste, taste !
Get up, get up !
Ju lip, Ju lip, Jti-U'l'i'i-i-p.'"
Our traveller goos ou to say that the
imitation was altogether irresistible and
j that the mncking bird is, really, a dan
gerous animal. As we reflect upon it, it
docs seem to us that this ia as near what
the mocking bird aays as anything we
have ever seen in print, and that he
ought, certainly, to be looked after.
Consequently we advise the Suue of
Temperance to lay in a supply of fowl
ing pieces and ammunition and to "go,"
generally, fur the mocking bird.
BRA NCR 7 ILL E ITEMS?
That largo, unsightly ditch running
alongside Main Street, iu Brauchrille,
h is been boxed and covered over with
earth, adding much to the health and
appearance oi the town.
Mr. A. l.oryea, one of the bebt and
must enterprising merchants of Braue h
ville. has just bad completed one of the
largest and best arranged store houaes
iu the town. ,
Mr. K.T. K. Sntoake was the builder,
aud receives much praise for the me
cbauicsl skill displayed.
The ?? Palmetto State Baso Hall Club
of Branch rill?" has ro organized and has
refused to discuss any subjeot uueounee
ted with "future victories."
The crops in the vicinity of Branch
ville are generally good.
There was a lively row in our Streets
lust Monday. Peter Brown, acting as
couatuble, endeavored to arrest lsaao
Whitmorc, who demanded Peters au
thority. No warrant being forth
coming, Isaac struck out lustily for ''life,
liberty and sacred ?ouur." Mr. Mao
beth came hastily aud manfully to
Isaac's rescue, but the constable bad
already buert re enforced aud a pitched
battlo began, Isaac and M; cbeth
loprcseuting nue of the bclligeret.1
factions and a whole army of countable.*,
with tho posse, the other. Joe went to
grass at an early date but recovered his
pins and succeeded in drawing a liberal
supply of claret from the nearest man.
Isaao got in heavily on a neighbor, but,
being seized by a half dosen of the ene
my at one sod the same time was obliged
to succumb, nut iogloriously, to superior
numbers. A diversion ia tho enemy's
flank permitted him to rally, and support,
for a moment,a "reconnoisaanee in force"
which was at that junoture advanced by
his trusty helpmate, but the Cannon of
tho Town Council wheeling into sight
just then, lease surrendered at discre
tion The Marshal of the day deposit
ed him in the guard house for sale
keeping, but the town authoritiee, upon
a council of war being held iu regard to
the easus belli deeided that they had ne
jurisdiction and Isaac was dismissed
A correspondent (' M") of the Times
says with reference to ths New Street,
"We don't see the names of Judge T. W.
Glover, M. Gloeer, N. A. Bull aud W.
N. Scovill, on the petition. Tb?y are
the grntletneo who will be apt to be the
most HURT Of BKKEF1TTBD by this pro
posod New Street. Let as consult their
wishes first, sod if they say yes, well it
is all right"
Wh*rrupon, with all due respeet for
the four gentlomea whose ?tat? aro io j
unnecessarily brought forward in this
natter, we have to observe that there
are probably some 1496 other resideals
of Oraogeburg who axe entitled to a
moderate sharo of consideration lo pub
lio affairs, some of whom might find it
inconvenient to be always taking these
gentlemen's permission to do anything.
"M." further tays that the Nxwa was
mistaken in stating that dipt. Islar was
the first to suggest the opening of the
last oew street. Our informant ws< an
old resident of Oraogeburg whs, We
supposed, knew all about it. Upon
further ioquiry, however, w? bulicve we
were mistaken. We cheerfully make i
the acknowledgment, and accord to j
Capt. Briggmanu the praise which is so
justly hia due.
The aame correspondent advises the
Time? to "treat the Street matter with
contempt," and to go in heavy ou Agri
culture. This is good advice, and we
hope it_wi 11 be followed. Our neighbor
is well posted iu regard to the orops, the
last of the 10,000 recipes for pickles,
Ao., and manages to run a very enter
taining and excellent Agricultural ool ?
umn. But it isn't atroug in other
mattera, evidently. Let it follow "M's"
advice and retire from public life to the
leaa brilliant but equally honorable
and far more comfortable sphere of
?The Farm," "The Gardeu" snd
"Household Economy." *
