Correspondence of tlie Yorkvllle Enquirer. Gastonia, N. Cm May 5.?Nearly all of our town went over to hear Rev. Sam Jones last week, and no two were impressed alike, and no one is qnite sure how he was impressed. , Some denominate him "The Great Pulpit Comedian others "The Great Preacher of the Century;" others "A Daniel Come to Judgment," Ac. However much they differ in regard to Sam Jones, there is but one opinion as to Rev. W. P. Fife, who is conducting a protracted meeting in our town. As your correspondent before stated, a large tent, the same used at the Pearson meeting in Rock Hill, has been secured and erected near the Methodist church. Rev. Mr. Fife came here from Charlotte last Saturday evening and began services on Sunday morning. On Sunday he held three services and two on each of the following days?at 10:30 a. m., and 8 p. m. While the weather is not at all favorable, there has not been a single service that has not been well attended, and as he himself says, the meeting has opened most auspiciously. Mr. JP'l 16, irom mo nrsi, uas impressuu uia hearers with his sincerity, earnestness, zeal and thorough conservatism. His poweY lies in his intense earnestness and his proving every assertion by a ,;Tbus saith the Lord." He is a man of commanding appearance and has a magnificent voice. He makes no attempt at oratory, but often his flights are grand and touching. There are times in every service when every face manifests the deepest interest and many eyes are bedimmed with tears. Then are a number of visiting ministers with us and others are expected. The music furnished by the union choir, is excellent. Capt. Holland, of Dallas, with his cornet, contributes much to the music. An election was held to-day for town authorities, which resulted as follows: B. G. Bradley, mayor; T. C. Pegram, Geo. A. Gray, A. M. Smyre, Mc. Morris and K N. Lineber.,vge& aldermeD. There were two tickets out? on? in favor of tho recommendations mentioned in my last, called "high tariff," and the above named opposed to everything known as "low tariff." The vote stood 59 to 47. While the town was divided there was no "bad blood" up. The above is a good ticket, and I think every one is perfectly satisfied. Your correspondent has learned that Mr. Pegram was offended at being called a "gentleman of leisure." This does Mr. Pegram a great injustice, for the "checker seasou" has opened, and he is one of the busiest men of our town. Mr. Tom Craig is lying sick in Charlotte with erysipelas. brkt. LETTER FROM LANCASTER COUNTY. Correspondence of the Yorkvillc Enquirer. Craigsvillk, May 5.?Our farmers have made good progress in planting. For a week past some of them have been harrowing and barring off cotton, and a few have chopped some. Most of them seem to be trying to raise bread for next year. The season has been favorable for planting of corn, and most of it has been put in good condition. Some of our people are so well advanced with their work that they hunt squirrels and rabbits and occasionally go fishing. Some timo since some young men saw a squirrel run into a hole, at a considerable height in a tree. After vainly trying to entice him from his castle, one of the young men climbed up the tree to the hole, used switches to twist him out and tried several methods to get him out; but the squirrel refused to come. At length he fired into the hole, in an upward direction, with his pistol, and some blood fell on the weapon. He was jubilant and told his comrades that he had surely "got him this time." But his joy was suddenly changed. Following the biood came a big, long, black snake, writhing and twisting in agony so as create the impression that it was striking. The young man fired again at random and made excellent time towards the top of that tree, while the snake made its way to the ground and died. There is no telling how high the young man would have gone. He said afterwards he would have run clear out at the top of that tree rather than closed with thesnake. Buthis friends stopped his ascension by telling him that the reptile was not pursuing him. I should willingly bet a barrel of tar against a barrel of soft soap that that young never will be caught in such a snap . again. Fruit will be scarce this year. Strawberries are only moderately abundant. Pies have been on the bill of fare for seyeral days. Plums are a failure. Apples are tolerably numerous. A few peaches in protected spots promise to keep us from forgetting their taste. Cherries are fairly plentiful. Some of our farmers were waiting for rain to bring up a full stand of cotton before chopping. They have it now. A lino season came Saturday afternoon and night. Gardening was set back by the the two cold snaps, a good deal of truck being killed, but late planting is growing nicely, waxhaw. LETTER FROM UNION COUNTY. Correspondence of the Yorkvilte Enquirer. Etta Jaxk, May 5.?Capt. S. S. Walker, of Sunnyside, died at his home at 2 o'clock this morning. He had been quite unwell for several days. The immediate cause of his death I am unable to give, but suppose it was Bright's disease. Capt. Walker was the last surviving member of one of the oldest and most influential families in this community. For several years previous to his death ho has been spending his life quietly at his home and looking after his agricultural interests, lie will bo buried at Skull Shoals to-morrow, fith instant. He was a brother of Capt. J. Felix Walker, of the 18th S. C. V., who was mortally wounded at Second Manassas, August 30,1SG2. Last Saturday our soetion Was visited by a fine rain that has put now life into the growing crops. Our farmers will have much to dojiow to keep ahead of the grass. The oats were suffering more than any other crop. They are heading out too low to cut, but we may expect great improvement on them from tho rain that has fallen within the last two days. The railroad force are getting down to their work in earnest. Most of tho line from Mer cer 8 i>iin in union, u. n.t win no uaupiou ?j the last of this week, perhaps with snilicieut forces to push the work through to completion by the end of the present year. Messrs. Jones it Co., and Smith it Gaston have the contract for grading along the Broad River valley, a distance of about twelve miles on this side of the river. T sioma. LETTER FROM BLACKSTOCK. Correspondence of the Yorkville Enquirer. Blackstock, May 5.?The splendid rains that visited this section on yesterdav and the , day before will insure a fine stand of cotton for the farmers, and will help the small grain very much also. Last Saturday was the day of the big picnic which is heldannually at Catawba Falls. Only two or three from this immediate neighborhood braved the threatening weather and attended, and they report rather a poor time, as the attendance was.small and the rain made it very uncomfortable for those who aid venture , out. Our citizens here seem very much interested in the Tillman campaign, though none made it convenient to attend the opening meeting at Ridgeway, last Saturday. On Thursday last the Ladies' society of the Presbyterian church held a very interesting anniversary meeting at the manse. The members took baskets and spent the whole day, passing the time in quilting and other ways that combined pleasure and profit. There wero several additions to the membership, and the condition of the society is now a most nourishing one. COULD NOTES. Correspondence of the Yorkvillc Enquirer. Gould, York County, May 5.?Our section was visited with a good rain on Wednesday, which was badly needed. Cotton and corn are about planted. Earlv corn has generally a good stand and is now being worked the iirst time. In all probability there will be no complaint of a stand of cotton, as there is a good stand now on fully half the crop. Oats sown before Christmas or during the fall will be generally good; in some instances they will be tine. Later or spring sowing has como out a good deal, and with favorable seasons may make a fair crop. There is some complaint of rust on wheat, but with the season that is now in the land it is not too far spent to make an average crop. The fruit crop will bo small in comparison with last year. A great many of the fruit trees have died, both peaches and apples, and without a change farmers may go to planting orchards. Our farmers are at least two or three weeks ahead of last year with their work, and with a good outlook for an oat crop and home raised corn to feed their stock until oats come in. We are in a better condition than we have been for several years, ir. f. LETTER FROVLOWRYSVILLE. Correspondence of the Yorkville Enquirer. Lowrysville, May 6.?Communion services were held in the new church last Sabbath. The pastor was assisted by the Rev. J. L. McLin. The morning was very unfavorable, rain falling until iu o ciouk, wubu n. uicaiou otf and was pleasant for the remainder of the day. We have had more rain for the past few days than for a long time. The deepest gloom overshadows this community to-day. Mr. W. N. Guy is at the point of death with dry gangrene in the foot, which is spreading to the leg. Amputation was decided upon j'esterday. The operation was performed as a last resort by Drs. Anderson, Brawley, Devaga of Chester, and Love and McConnell, of McConnells'ville. The operation was successfully performed to-day, and the leg taken off above the knee; but I am informed there is very little hope entertained of his reeovory, as the main artery did not bleed, an indication that the disease has probably progressed above the point of amputation. The prayers of this community are ascending for his safety and restoration to health. w. o. o. LETTER FROM HICKORY GROVE..' Correspondence of the Yorkville Enquirer. > Hickohy Grove, May 5.?Messrs. J. -H. Wylie and W. H. Whisonant, of this place, sold last week to Messrs J. A. Carroll and S. S. Ross, of Gaffney City, 200 acres of land three miles north of this town. They obtained the sum of $3,000. The purchase was made with a view to working the gold mines which are on it. The work will begin soon. The farmers report a fine stand of cotton which is looking well. A great many are plowing their cotton already. The Thomas harrow is being used by many. The prospect for a corn crop is good also, though the cut worm is doing some damage. It is hoped that a good crop will be made this year, as there has been a great deal of guano used in this section. A short crop would put the farmers in a worse condition than ever. " Mr. T. M. Whisonant made a trip to llutherfordton, N. C., last week on special business. ><Mrs. Dr. Caldwell is on a visit to her parents and relatives in Columbia. She will be away about two weeks. .rex. LETTER FROM"CLAY HILL. Correspondence of the Yorkville Enquirer. Clay Hill, May 5.?In company with a friend, your correspondent made ajly ing trip over to Charlotte to hear the itev. Sam Jones. Any attempt on my part to give your readers a clear idea of the manner and style of this famous preacher, I would likely be in vain. To have an audience of five or six thousand in uproar of laughter and cheering one moment, and weeping and crying the next, is a mixture of strange extremes I had never witnessed. To address men of intelligence and education as "disreputablescoundrels" and "blathmouth fools," and then see them alternately laughing and crying, is evidently a sad commentary on the weakness of thehuman mind. "Otemporal Omores/" This being my first visit to Charlotte for some time, I was favorably impressed with her rapid improvement. I noticed a great many magnificent, private residences have been built within the last few years, also business establishments, and other enterprises denoting progress and life. West of the city, between the Carolina Central and the Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta railroads, are the imposing buildings of the "Anti-Trust Cotton Seed Oil company," with a capital of $200,000, making twenty barrels of oil per day, and have sold ten thousand tons of fertilizers this season. Charlotte has also four cotton factories, a large knitting factory, spoke and handle factory, furniture manufactory, canning factory, etc. Seven hundred pupils attend her graded school. The Christian association building cost twenty thousand dollars. Twenty thousand dollars has been subscribed K*i lsl rtr? a f o T .ntKoron oominorir I lu tlic uunuiu^ \ji u juuiiiviuu uvj j and onward and upward seems to be Charlotte's watchword Now, what we want and must have, is a railroad, running from our beautiful, progressive little city of Yorkville, to Charlotte. No section of the county can present stronger and more incontestible claims, in point of natural resources and advantages, than the north-eastern portion. We have right at our door an inexhaustible supply of ore, pronounced by competent judges unequaled in the State. Look at our water power?Crowder's and Big Allison creeks and Catawba riversufficient to run any number of factories and machinery of every kind. If we had the railroad, these country-developiug enterprises would spring up immediately. The people of Mecklenburg county want a road and are at this time agitating the subject. Our farmers are greatly enlivened over the recent copious showers of rain. The stands of both corn and cotton is good. The wheat crop will be almost a failure. Also the late sowing of spring oats. The health of the community is remarkably good since the disappearance of the grip. Our old friend, Mr. Osa Choat, has been in feeble health for some time, but is much improved at this writing. He is now in the ninety-second year of his age. J. D. Currence, another old man, has been in declining health, but I am glad to note is improving. The installation of Rev. McLain will take place at Allison Creek church, the third Sabbath of this month. Dr. Jordon, of Winnsboro, and Rev. Anderson, of Rock Hill, will officiate. pilgrim. SOUTH CAROLINA NEWS. ?

Murray, county treasurer of Aiken county, is believed to be from $17,000 to $18,000.

Six white prisoners escaped from the Greenville jail last Friday night. They cut a hole in the ceiling of their cell and pulling up through it walked between the roof and ceiling until they reached a noie over a dungeon, which had been made by fire about two years ago.

IN Yorkvillo MAY <fc MAY are the LEADING DRUGGISTS. We do not lead simply because the sonior member of our firm is the oldest druggist in Yorkville. We do not lead "by right of possession" or through the "priority claim," out we are the Leading Druggists through DESERVED MERIT, UNTIRING ENERGY, CARE IN COMPOUNDING AND QUALITY OF INGREDIENTS. This is one of the many reasons why our Drugs business extends over such a vast territory contiguous to Yorkyille. Another reason that we are the Leading Druggists is that we carry a splendid line of everything that you would expect to find in a first-class Drug Store, and at prices commensurate with the quality of the articles sold. It is impossible to enumerate our stock?it would requireawholepage of this paper?consequently it is necessary to give only a few notes on our latest purchases. Wilber's Breakfast Cocoa And PHILLIP'S DIGESTIBLE COCOA for Dyspepsia are highly recommended by every one. If you aro suffering from Indigestion buy it and try it. TARITE. Tarite is something new in this market, but is one of the best disinfectants for exterminatings Moths, Ants and all kinds of insects ever known. It is made to bo used in packing away CLOTHING, BLANKETS AND QUILTS, or anything that is likely to be attacked by moths or insects, and it will preservo them and keep them just as good as when packed away. Moths can't live where Tarite is placed, and you can have no excuse for having your wintor clothing ruined when a small outlay will save them. PRATT'S CHLORIDE Is a magnificent disinfectant for Out-houses, Sinks and Back-yards, and now while the Sauitary Committee is on duty, is the time to use it. But it should not only be used when the Sanitary Committee is on duty, but during the entiro summer. Always keep it on tlio premises. Canary Bird Seed.

OUR GRAND CASH SALE STILL CONTINUES and the jamb of last Saturday was a little more than remarkable. People crowded into our store declaring vengeance against our shelves and vowing that they must have some of the "Old Reliable's" goods. And they got them too. It was a general gingling of Cash for the day, and when night came our most efficient corps of clerks yielded to the fatigue of the day. It was Clothing and Dress Goods here, White Goods and Millinery there, and in our Millinery department alone, ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY HATS were sold for the week?an average of twenty per day. OUR GRAND GASH SALE, Which was commenced on last THURSDAY, APRIL 24TH, WILL CONTINUE FOR mtttnrnv t\ a vci axtt vi /-a..? ? ? ~ j.njli\j. i juaio \jixui j uur purpusu 111 inaugrating this sale was to introduce the quality of our goods into every home in York county and bring about comparisons and awaken the people to the realization of the fact that QUALITY IS THE WATCHWORD and that LATIMER'S DRY GOODS STORE IS THE PLACE TO GET ONE HUNDRED CENTS ON THE DOLLAR for your hard earned money. In order to introduce these goods in so many homes, it will necessarily be at a great sacrifice to us, involving the loss of many dollars, but it will bring new faces from abroad and familiarize them with the quality of goods that we handle and acquaint them with our methods of handling goods. Don't forget that OUR GRAND CASH SALE Is NOW GOING ON, in the height of theseason, and will continue for thirty days only. Every body should avail themselves of this sale and secure bargains that can only be obtained at LATIMER'S.

We expect to dispose of a great number of bargains at a sacrifice, but the goods thus sold will spoak words of praise for years to come and add wonderfully to our already enviable reputation as dealers in reliable merchandise, which in due course of time will remunerate us for the pecuniary loss thus sustained by OUR GRAND CASH SALE. Bargains are what the people want and bargains are what they shall have. We mean to sell these goods to whoever may want them; we propose to sell them to those who come for them first and at a uniformly low price. Think of Shallis at 6 per yard ! FINE GINGHAMS. We believe wd have the finest line of Ginghams ever brought to Yorkville, and we have them at any price that a customer might like to pay, which argues very strongly that you can expect to secure full yalues in this line only when you are dealing with reliable, experienced merchants. We have been tola by drummers who yisit every town and city in the State, that we have the nicest, largest and best line of Ginghams that they have seen and that our prices are from 1 to 124 cents per yard cheaper than any that they had seen. im ufuitc ennno Ill VTflllC UUUUO We have always been the acknowledged leaders, and are now the great headquarters for a vast territory adjacent to Yorkville.

RIDDLE. THE PERFECTION SIDE HARROW. DURING the past ten or twelve years the use of the side harrow for the cultivation of cotton, has become almost universal, and it is to-day recognized as a necessity by the farmer. Until the past three or four years this branch of the agricultural implement industry has been neglected by the manufacturers, and up to the time mentioned every fanner made his own harrow, and often the result was a clumsy, ill-proportioned, unsatisfactory implement. Wo havo recently found a manufacturer who knows exactly what a Side Harrow should bo, and lie also realizes that they must be sold at a close figure. Wo now have on hand a limited supply of the PERFECTION SIDE HARROW, and would respectfully ask tho farmers of the county to call and examine them and get prices. The price is so small that you will hardly believe we mean what we say when we tell you what it is. We hope that all farmers who want harrows will call at once, for if the matter is postponed until the harrow is needed the demand may exceed the supply. ABOUT SOMETHING ELSE. We havo a large stock of Plows, Plow Stocks, Trace Chains, Ifames, Hamostrings, Leather Backhands, Plow Lines, Bolts of various lengths and sizes, Nails, Ilorso and Mule Shoes, and wo know that prices will please purchasers.

And since throwing its doors open to the public, It has been a howling success; attracting customers from every direction, who will testify to the consumers of the world as to the remarkably low prices and quality of our goods. A thousand, yea tens of thousands of people will bear substantial testimony to the great benefits which have been derived from the New, York Racket Store under the supernatural management of Messrs. A. Y. CARTWRIGHT A CO., the Original, Pinoneer, OnePriced Cash Store of Northern South Carolina. We do not propose to waste our time in telling customers what we have accomplished in their behalf, for it is still fresh in their minds ; and besides they have already paid us all we asked. We intend to keep you posted on what we expect to do, which taking our past achevements as a guide, you can form only a faint and indistinct idea. As we said before, we are going to lead, and and to lead the merchants of this section is a task only to be conceived of by customers who have been trading in Yorkville since our store was opened. We are now carrying a tremenduous stock of WHITE GOODS which is attracting universal attention among all classes of tasty buyers. We don't believe there ever was a better, prettier and cheaper line exhibited in a retail store in the State. Crowds of ladies have bought from us and they substantiate what we say.

We are up to our business and can furnish you these Shoes in Lace or Button at $1.00, cash. We have a few Trimmed Hats for ladies that we will sell so cheap that the customer will think that our charges were only for wrapping them up. A. Y. CARTWRIGHT & CO.

TWO things are necessary in order to do a successful business in our line, and it is our constant aim to meet these requirements, and we think we have succeeded. The first requirement is to have the kind of Vehicles that the public want, and the second is to sell them at BOTTOM PRICES. We rarely ever fail to pleaso in both these particulars. We always try to keep on hand a large and varied stock, consisting of CARRIAGES, PH/ETONS, SURRYS, BUGGIES AND CARTS, and our object in having these Vehicles is to meet the demands of the public in our line. Wo now have on hand a very fine selection of the Vehicles above named, and should we be unable to please purchasers with what we may have in stock, our facilities for manufacturing are so complete that we can turn out any style of Vehicle desired ON VERY SHORT NOTICE. We propose to sell Vehicles and lots of them, and we propose to compete both in quality of work, style and prices. We do not ask patronage because we are running a "Home Enterprise." Oh! no, wehaye long since learned that that kind ofa plea is n? g?. and that in order to do business, business methods must be used, and thus compete with all others in the same line. Come and see us and talk Buggy to us. We like to talk Buggy talk, and are confident we can interest you. We will now say a few words about WAGONS. We don't manufacture the Wacons we sell, but they are good Wagons just the same. We know they are good, because they have been tried by hundreds of farmers and others in this section and pronounced to be the best. We sell the "OLD HICKORY" and "TENNESSEE." They are first-class Wagons, and at the same time sell at a very reasonable figure. Don't think of buying a Wagon until you see what we can do for you, and if our prices are net as low or lower than anybody's, we will cheerfully submit to our competitors' making the sale. Now, give us a showing. REPAIRING. All repair work entrusted to us will be done promptly and in a.proper manner. We solicit this class of work and feel sure that we can give satisfaction every time.
