LETTER FROM CHESTER. Chester, December 17, 1877. A copy of the proceedings of the stockholders of the Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta Railroad Company at their late annual meeting, held at Columbia, was sent me by some unknown friend. The object of this attention was, in all probability, the giving of a statement by me of the more important facts in reference to the company in the columnsofthe Enquirkr, so that the large number of stockholders in this county may be informed in regard to its condition. The mortgage debt of the road, as stated in the President's report, is as follows: Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta 1st mortgage bonds, $1,810,500: Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta 2nd mortgage bonds, $500,000; and Columbia and Augusta 1st mortgage bonds, $189,* 500 ; making a total of $2,500,000. The first mortgage debt is $10,256 per mile, and the second mortgage $2,564 per mile. Cost of road and prop? A*rv"f All fho hnnrla hftar t.hA ony, pci uuroi i&u ?uw w.v.w vvw. same rate of interest, viz.: seven percent per annum. The road has not done a large business during the past year. The President, in his report, says: 4,At yonr last meeting the hope was expressed that the period of commercial depression that followed the panio of 1873 had reached its termination, and that a new and improved business era was at hand. This hope has not been realized, and we have had to submit to a still further decrease in our receipts, which we have met bv a still further reduction in our expenses." fu addition to the great commercial depression, the falling off of receipts is due to the competition in the carrying trade, which, as the President says, "had been waged to such an extent, that rates of freight have become almost nominal." The injury occasioned by cojn\ petition had become so great that Southern ro&ds were compelled to join together for the purpose of maintaining rates. The association had not aecopnptiahed what was expected of it. , President'Palmer defends the Northern "gentlemen, who own a controlling interest in the stock of the road, from the charge commonly made against them, that they run the road entirely for the advancement of their own interest, without regard t>, and detrimental to the interest of other stockholders. He states, in his report, that "the rumors that, from time to time, gain currency to the effect that the larger shareholders in this road are unwilling to accord to it that consideration to which ' its trA.tfirranhical nosition entitles it, do the gentle- I men referred to* great injustice.'* -In managing the road, he has had "their most earnest and active co-operation." To thebnilding of new roads, . especially the Atlanta and Richmond Air Line I and Chester and Lenoir Railroads, is attributed r the decline in business, both passenger and freight, and not to the influence and action of those holding a majority of the stock. The earnings of the road, for the fiscal year just ended, were $497,156.92; for the same period last year the earnings were $524,562.66, making a decrease of $27,405.74. The operating expenses, daring the fiscal year Just ended, were $294,668.14, making an excess of receipts over operating expenses of $202,488.78. Operating expenses for the last year were $321,235.00, making an exoess of receipts over operating expenses of $203,327.66. While the receipts were considerably greater last year as compared with this year, the expenditures have been considerably less this year, showing a difference between the two years of only $838.88. The number of bales of cotton shipped from Chester on the Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta Railroad during the fiscal year ending September 30th, 1877, was 6,865. As many bales, if not more, were shipped from this point during the same time on the Chester and Lenoir Railroad. The number of bales shipped from Rock Hill on the Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta Railroad during the same fiscal year, was 7,823; the number of bales shipped from Blackstocks during the same time and on the same road, was 2,113; the number of bales from Fort Mill was 1,802; the uairiber of bales ft-ona Woodward's was 1,817, and the number of bales from Winnsboro was 9,361. A destructive disease is prevailing among the cattle and hogs in the vicinity of Pleasant Grove Church in this county. Mr. R. L. Miller, Mr. **" Robert Douglas, Mr. Israel Hood, Mr. John Hood, and others in the neighborhood have suffered coni siderably from the loss of both cows and hogs. f The disease is spreading, and, unless stopped, will occasion heavy loss among the farmers. A larare Quantity of land in this county will be sold by the Sheriff on next sale day. The tine plantation of Mr. Joshua Walker, containing 509 acres, with residence and necessary outbuildings, and within a short distance of town, will be sold to foreclose a mortgage held by the Commissioner in Equity of York oounty. 750 acres of Broad River land, belonging to E."J.

The following circular from PostmasterGeneral Key is of interest alike to postmasters and the public generally : Postmasters are required to keep a complaint book, in which all letters reported to them as lost are entered, and, after making examination in their offices, they are required to report the loss, with all particulars, without delay. The public are also invited to report promptly all losses or irregularities in their correspondence to the chief special agent, postoffice department, Washington, D. C., and investi gation will follow. If all losses should be promptly reported, it will be the means of correcting the irregularities, and the interests of the public, as well as the efficieucy of the postal service, will be enhanced iu a most important degree. The omission of the county iu the address of letters, is one of the great causes of delay ^ and missending. jo?"

WHAT TO DO " "S to me. as Book-keener for W. H. A J. P. A HERNDON, a question hard to solve. We have sold goods to parties who promised faithfully to pay by November 1st, ana the time is gone, and no pay yet. It is not right for a man to make promises and not fulfill his "word unless he had a good excuse. And some would think it hard to e refused credit. The reason they are refused is that they do not perform their part of the contract. We have done our duty by you, and now we ask you to do yours by us. Your promises do not pay for goods in Northern cities, and how are we to keep up? Interest is running and some, do not like to pay it. But still they will let it accumulate, and make their notes larger. Those who have done their duty, as men should do, we thank; and will be very thankful to those who do theirs in the future. We only ask for our kindness to be reciprocated in Gold, Silver, Greenbacks, or Cotton at a good price. We will give a good price for Cotton to those owing us, and pay them the balance in money, should the Cotton overpay their note or account. Please be certain to close your account before the year goes out, and say you and the Herndons are 0. K. W. H. A J. P.
