Yorkville ladies go about preparing for a fes- i
tival, they spread a feast fit for the gods! Im- i agiue a profusion of viands to lure the taste; salads, cakes, creams, sweetmeats and confections, to tempt the palates of the old and bewilder the minds of the young; pyramids of luscious strawberries and tropical fruits; ice cream, cold as the lofty glacier's virgin snow; an ever-flowing fountain of lemonade, to say nothing of the thousand and one mi- j nor concomilauts going to make a bill of fare, and some idea may be formed of what the ladies of Yorkviilo spread upon their tables when they give a festival. The tables on this occasion were no exception to the rule, and while they groaned with luxuries and substantial, they were attended by ladies who did their utmost to please the public^ Cake was dispensed by Mrs. John J. Smith, Mrs. G. H. O'Leary, Mrs. John L. Starr, Miss Maggie Herndon and Miss Minnie Rawlinson. The meats aDd coffee table waB presided over by Mrs. I. D. Witherspoon, Mro W. R. Jones. Mrs. Rufus Moore and Miss Sallie May. The strawberry department, was under management of Mrs. J. T. Lowry, Mrs. J. F. Hart and Miss Hattie Crenshaw ; and the ice cream and lemonade, under direction of Mrs. R. Frank Clark, Mrs. William Steele, Miss Maria McPheeters, Miss Bell Crepps, Miss Rosa Snider and Miss Hannah E. Grist, who acknowledge able assistapce by Miss Corea Clark, of the M. E. Church, Dr. J. B. Allison and Mr. John R. Ash. Dr. Allison superintended making the ice cream, which would be sufficient guarantee of its quality. He seems to have a formula for the compounding of this delicacy not possessed by^ny other member of the profession. And Mr. Ash has a peculiar knack for raakiug lemonade, of delicious flavor and cooling qualities. Every goblet drawn was as cool and refreshing as if distilled by polar spirits. But in speaking of the bounteous provision of the ladies in catering to the wants of the inner man, it would be au omission, of which we cannot be guilty, to fail mentioning the fact that ample justic was done to all the tables. A liberal patronage, for which the sterner sex of Yorkville is no less famous, was bestowed upon all the departments of the festival, and from this alone, we learu a handsome sum was derived. The concluding part of the entertainmeut consisted of instrumental music by a number of young ladies. Several choice selections were rendered, among which were a duet by ? ' T T L _ | Misses Belle McUaw ana Jvaie donnsuu.-u duet by Misses Zoraida Ingold and Lessie Wither8poon ; solos by Miss McCaw, Miss ? Johnson and others. Altogether, the entertainment, from the beginning to the close, was a most enjoyable affair and a decided success. ^ [Communicated.] FOR THE LEGISLATURE. Editor of the Enquirer : The friends of Col.

Treasurer Mills opened his books on Wednesday for the collection of the tar for the fiscal year, beginning November 1, 1877. The entire tax levy for this county amounts to 14* mills?6* mills for State purposes, 3 for county, 4 for railroads, and one mill to pay the past indebtedness of the couuty. The pecuniary condition of the people is such that it is a matter of impossibility for them to pay this tax at the present time. They need the little money in their possession for the carrying on of their agricultural operations. And there are a considerable number who are compelled to give liens on their crops to obtain the necessary supplies. Our Treasurer will, consequently, have little to do in the way of collecting taxes until next fall. He will, Ka ;n k;a fnP the collection of uunovci, uv tu >M? v^vV __ moneys due the State. Our town was afflicted with extreme dullness during the past week. Main street, at times, presented a desolate look. Farmers are so engaged at home that they have not the time to come to town. This condition of affairs may be expected to coutinue for some time. The Lee Light Infantry, with their new and beautiful equipments, formed in line on Wednesday afternoon, and marched to the depot to receive the Yorkville Silver Helicon Band, expected on a special train from our neighboring town. The train arriving in due time, the Band was enthusiastically received by their Chester friends, and by them escorted to the Cotton Hotel, where they were well entertained. Under the leadership of Mr. Robert J. Herndon, the Band dispensed very sweet music during the course of the evening. They honored me with a serenade, for which - my hearty thanks are due. Sickness in my family prevented a proper enjoyment of the delightful music, and a proper acknowledgment of the honor conferred. Mayor Agurs and, probably, others, were musically entertained by our Yorkville friends. Long life and prosperity attend each member of the Band! On Thursday morning the excursion train for Gastonia took its departure, containing the Lee Light Infantry, the Yorkville Band, and a large number of ladies and gentlemen from this place aud Rich Hill. The engine was prettily decorated, and the train moved off amid great enthusiasm and rejoicing on the part of the lively excursionists, i was unavoidably prevented from being one of the ! happy number and, consequently, am unable to give an account of the gay trip. The Survivors' Association met in the Court House on Thursday. In the abseace of the President, Uaptain wiinam luc/uney, Vice-President W. C. MeFadden was called to the chair, and Mr. J. H. Buchanan performed the duties of secretary. The Association took action that will lead to a reunion of the survivors of the Chester and Fairfield j companies of the old Sixth Regiraeut. Ou the first Thursday in August a dinner will be given, at this place, by the Chester survivors, at which the Fairfield survivors will be invited to be present. Messrs. J. L. Agurs, j E. T. Atkinson, 0. A. Wylie, E. M. Shannon and Grandison Williams were appointed a committee to make suitable arraugemeuts for | the dinner. A speaker, to be selected from the Sixth Regiment, will make au address upon the interesting occasion. Messrs. W. T. D. Cousar, R. Brandt and Joel R. Simril were appoiuted a committee to secure a suita- j ble speaker. Mr. Calvin Brice, of Fairfield, was present at the meeting, and spoke of the formation of a Survivors' Association in that county. A reunion of the Chester and Fairfield survivors will, in all probability, lead to a reunion of the survivors of the entire Regraent. The Gastonia excursionists arrived at home about 9 o'clock on Thursday evening. A detention of some kind prevented their arrival at an earlier hour. They were highly delighted with their trip. The profits of the excursion enabled the Lee Light Infantry to cancel their indebtedness, and leave a balance in their favor. The Chester Democratic Club met on Sat-' urday. In consequence of the inclement weather, the attendance was slim. It was de cided to postpone a discussion of, and decision upon the primary election plan of making nominations, until the next meeting of the Club. Resolutions endorsing Hampton were adopted. A committee, consisting of Messrs. j T. C. Gaston, A. H. Davega, R. A. Love, J. S. Wilson and J. H. Buchanan, were appointed to draft a constitution for the Club, j The nest meeting of the Club will be on the j 18th of May. At a late meeting of the Democratic Club j of Blackstocks, Mr. R. T. Mockbee was elected President; Messrs. W. D. Simpson j < and ?. M. Shannon, Vice-Presidents ; Mr. J. j E. Craig, Secretary, and Mr. George Kennedy, Treasurer. Resolutions were adopted, j endorsing Hampton and the Democratic i members of the Chester delegation in the , Legislature. At a late meeting of the Democratic Club , of Lewis' Turn Out, Mr. S. J Lewis was elect- , ed President; Messrs. G. C. Gill, R. A. Crawford and G. H. Neely, Vice-Presidents; Mr. i J. M. McFadden, Treasurer ; and Mr. Octa- : vius Johnson, Secretary. Resolutions endorsing Hamptou were adopted. Consideration of the primary election question was postponed. It was my pleasure to spend the last two days in the vicinity of Lewis' TurnOut. The crops in that section are looking very fine. ' ? , O Mr. Kyan, wno is m cnarge ui xur. jjcucu o store, is selling a great many goods. He has my thanks for kindness extended. I met my old friend, Major W. P. Gill, at the Turn ( Out. He is quite interested in politics, but has no aspirations for office. He is satisfied with the past honors bestowed upon him by the people of Chester county. I was informed that the voters of Lewis' Turn Out i are desirous of sending Col. J. S. Wilson to ! the Legislature. He was a representative from this county in the Legislature before the war. He made an excellent member then, ' and he would make an excellent member j now. i Mr. R. H. Neely met with the misfortune of having his stables and several mules destroyed by fire on Monday night. It was the work of an incendiary. Qui. ' IMPROVEMENT OX *COTTON GINS. The Concord (N. C.) Sun of recent date furnishes the following interesting account of an improvement in cotton gins, which will be of interest to every person owning a gin : There has been quite a lively interest created in Charlotte during the past week by the announcement of a great improvement J which has been made in and is applicable to ' all styles of cotton giDS, which consists of dispensing entirely with the Bristle Brush < and substituting therefor a "Wiper," con- ( structed of leather, which thoroughly dis- ' charges all lint from the saws, as soon as they come in contact with this leather brush or "wiper," and blows it into the lint room. J It is the invention of Mr. Henry A. Walker, j of Steele Creek, Mecklenburg county, N. C., who obtained a patent thereon in March last, j He aud those to whom he granted licenses, have been operating wicn a ou men vjiuo since January last, amongst whom may be mentioned J. Starr Neely, R. G. Kendrick, ] Wm. Smith, H. N. Query, J. W. Potts, T. S. Cooper, W. M. Parker and others, whose cer tificates we have read over, and if what they have stated be true (which we cannot doubt? in the least?for they are the very best and most progressive citizens in the county, j and are endorsed by the acting Justice of Steel Creek, F. Lee Erwin, Esq., and con ( Grmed by the Clerk of the Superior Court, J. R. Erwin,) it is one of the simplest and most valuable inventions for the cotton planter, which has been gotten up since the original conception of the gin by Eli Whitney. For by its use, one-fourth of the power to run ' the gin is dispensed with, and it gins frust j bitten, rusty cotton and that fresh from the field, with equal facility?without napping S the fibre or gumming the saws, and yields a ? more silky looking fibre. It is estimated that ^ this and the other advantages to he achieved and realized by the planters, add fully $5 additional value to each and every bale of cot- i ton produced and ginned by Mr. Walker's arrangements ; and as there were some 4,500,000 bales produced last year, its general . adoption would have added 820.000,000 to the Southern plauters and more than enough to pay for all the fertilizers and other ex penses required for the entire cotton crop. c \Va 1 no rn that Mr 0!. C. CooDer. of Ran I * f? v .V.M v. ?- - " ? t I alesburg, Mecklenburg, N. C., owns the right for the sale of the above attachment in South Carolina, and for the information of those t owning, gins we give place to the above para- , graph Mr. Cooper will sell farm rights for ' usiug this invention, and will answer auy in t quiries coucerniug it that may be made of him by letter. Teachers' County Conventions.?The ' school teachers of the various counties of this ( State should at ouce go to work and organize i a county convention. Get all your teachers together for two days, and the benefit will be . invaluable. An exchange of opinioua as to methods of teaching, text books, discipline and the thousand other questions pertaining to the work of the teacher, would do much t good iu each county. r These conventions will greatly assist our 1 State Superintendent. He will be able to j see all the teachers, and particularly the c entry teachers, and impart to them his own views and enthusiasm. Ifthree working teachers will get up an informal meeting, and appoint a place and time for the convention, and then use the j couuty papers freely in writing up the conven- j tion and publishing the order of business, it . will be a success. These editors will do any- j thing to help the educational interests of the j State. o Should the teachers of any couuty desire f information as to details and plans, they can get it from auy of the Spartanburg teachers. They have held these conventions for eight years, aud would not give them up for auy ' consideration. Charles Petty. f Prejudice often rules in the physical treat- , raent of Babies.

The result of these diseases upon the masses of intelligent and valuable people is most alarming, making life actually a burden, instead of a pleasant existence of enjoyment and usefulness, as it ought to be.

The poor having the gospel PREACHED to them, was one ofthe eviden ces of our Lord's Messiahs hip. Well, if they do not, it is not the fault of Carriage Makers," for we offer good, respectable looking second-hand Buggies for $25, and new ones low in proportion. But it is not every family that can buy something to ride to church in, even at $25; and they live too far from a church to walk ; the delicate health of the mother, and the children too small to go by themselves, shuts them out of the Lord's House. Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature, was our Lord's command to his Ministers. If the Gospel was preached to every intelligent creature, once each two weeks, in York county, for even one vear, the unprofitable encumberers of the ground, dug about with kind and gracious words, enriched by passages from the word of truth, given encouragement and consolation and assured that Christ had died that they might live, the children catechised and told that they are heirs of a better inheritance than this world, and that sin alone can deprive them of it?criminals would only be known as has beens, jails would be empty, Court House officers' occupations would be*almost gone, and the money paid in taxes to convict and maintain criminals would be saved, and every family would be able to have a nice vehicle to ride in.

They are all twins. When the morning stars sang together for joy, the weather was one of the smiling audience. It brooded over the face of the deep in creation, and crowned the everlasting hills aj soon as the almighty fiat went forth, "Let the dry land appear." Although the most commonplace of all topics, it is vested with an importance that few appreciate. When all the systems of ethics and philosophy, that have so perplexed and distracted the human mind, shall have decayed and passed away, then this Omega, this last great subject, will loom up as the herald of the millennium?the one upon which the universe agrees. The weather also exercises a material influence over the physical economy, particularly at this season of tne year, as is seen by the many sufferers from depression of spirits, head-ache, loss of appetite, torpid liver, and its fellow?indigestion, poor blood, Ac., Ac.
