The first cotton bloom for this season was sent to onr office on Monday, and came from the crop of Mr, J. M. Town-. send, of Savannah Town ship. It bloomed Monday morning. Shortly after its arri? val, we received another bloom from the farm of Mr. D. A. McAllster, near Mof fattsvilla It. bloomed on the 16thinst, and was taken from a stalk having twenty forms and another bloom nearly open. Mr. Mc Allster's crops of corn and cotton are fine and well worked, and are said to be above the average in a neighborhood of good crops. Ike Lankford and B. B. Tucker, two negro musicians who claimed to be from Asheville, N. C, have been loa&ng around the city for several days. On Sunday they became involved in a row, when Policeman McEiuney attempted to arrest them. He captured - one of them, and the other fled,' bot was pursued and was captured finally after a race of a half mile. They were brought before the Mayor Monday under a charge of carry? ing concealed weapons and disorderly conduct,' and were fined $15.00' each. They paid up.

The Inter-County Normal Institute, for white teachers, to be held in Greenville from June 25th to Jnly 6th, promises to he one of the largest and most successful Institutes ever held in the State, and none of our teachers can afford to miss it. In the selection of the Faculty, great care has been taken, to secure the best and most practical lecturers. Railroad rates haye* been reduced to four cents per mile for round trip to teachers presenting teachers' certificates to depot agents. Board can be had at 50 cents per day in private fami? lies. Our School Commissioner is very much interested in the Institute, and will give any information in reference to it. The Greenville Entfyr?c and Moun? taineer, of last week, says: "J. G. Clink scales, the present School Commissioner of Anderson County, has published a card in the Intelligences stating that he will not at the coming election .again offer for the office. This determination on the part of Mr, Clinkscales is to be regretted, as he is a most efficient and useful official. ?The pablio service, we fear, will Buffer by his retirement. It is our opinion that by his industry, energy and zeal in the cause of popular education, the system of pub? lic schools in Anderson County has been greatly strengthened and elevated; hence onr regret at seeing him retire from the office at this time." Last Friday morning the case of the City Council of Anderson vs. James Dun bar, of Newberry, charged with gambling on the night of the 12th inst, was called for trial before Mayor Tolly. The City Council was represented by W. S. Brown, and Dunbar was represented by Harry Blease, Esq., of Newberry. After tho Council had closed its evidence, the defen? dant was put on the stand and testified to the effect that the witnesses for the Coun? cil did not see him gamble, and that he did not gamble while they were present. Mr. Brown then, asked Dnnbar if he played cards that night for money. To this his counsel objected, as it tended, or might tend, to criminate himself. Mayor Tolly ruled that the question was a proper question, and that Dunbar should an? swer, whereupon Dunbar said, ''Well, yea, I did play for rn oney, but these wit? nesses did not see it." He then went on to say that be had come here and pro? cured a room, and fixed up two tables with a Faro Bank and Red and Black, so that if any of the young men wanted to try their hanss he'd be ready. The Mayor found him guilty of the charge of gambling, and sentenced him to pay $75.00, or work on the streets thirty days. He appealed to the full Council and they sustained the Mayor, and an appeal was taken to the Circuit Court, Excursion Tickets. There will be on sale at the R. & D. de? pot, in this city, until September 30th next, summer excursion tickets (gqod to return until October 31st) to the folio wing points ; at prices named: All-Healing Springs, N.

First Annual Commencement?Speeches by the Ondots?Sermon by Rov. Mr. Culhbert, and an Address by Kev. Bili? san Capers, etc. The first annual commencement exor? cises of Patrick's Military Institute began last Friday evening and closed on Tues? day, and throughout has been an exceed? ingly interesting occasion. Those com? mencement seasons are always looked forward to with much pleasure, as they bring together many friends and former associates. The past week has been a gala one in Anderson, and everybody was absorbed in the Tournament, but not? withstanding this fact, the Institute Com? mencement was not foigotten, and at an ealy hour last Friday evening many per? sons could bti soen wending their way to the Institute buildings. The clouds were gathering, and just before the time for the exercises to begin the rain came down in torrents, but this did not keep the people away. When we reached the building we found the spacio d chapel comfortably filled with an intelligent audience. The chapel presented a very pretty scene. Tfes Cadets, with the assistance of their lady friends, had tastefully deco? rated f he walls and the platform with ever? greens nnd beautiful flowers. On the platform were eight stacks of guns, which were almost covered with wreaths. The Young America Cornet Band was present, and at intervals during the even? ing rendered some of its excellent music. After an appropriate prayer by Rev. T. F. Gadsden, extract speeches were delivered by the following cadets, in the order named, on the subjects quoted: "Voyage of Life"?Theodore Stone. "Boy's Rights"?J. C. Allen. "Eloquence?'?Fulwer Watson. "Pursuits in Life"?A Dialogue?Thos. Maxwell, Joe McCully, J. W. Prevost, A. 'P. Cater, Samnel Payne and Waller Nar? din. "The Village Preacher"?C. G. Sayre. ?Small Beginnings"?Durant Earle.

Drummond. - "Robin Roughhead"?A Dialogue Charles Stone, Benj. S. Patrick, and others. Each one of the Cadets acquitted him? self well, and received numerous beauti? ful floral tributes from their fair friends. On Sunday morning, at 11 o'olock, the Commencement Sermon was preached in the Baptist Church by Rev. Lucius Cuth bert, of- Alken, S. C. His text was: "And the Angel of the Lord appeared unto him, and said unto him, the Lord is with thee, thou mighty man of valor."? Judges 6:12. Gideon, of whom the text speaks, was taken as the hero of the ser? mon, and presented to the young men, es? pecially, for their admiration and imita? tion. The preacher called attention to the fact that the Angel addressed Gideon as a man,' a mighty man, a "mighty man of valor." He said the need of the times is for men, mighty men, and men of valor. Edu? cated, brave, moral, industrious men. Men who will know the right and dare to it; men who will take God's standard .as their standard, and His will as their will, and live by it and die by it. Especial at? tention was directed to the fact that Gid? eon was energetically doing his doty when called by God to save Israel. It is not the idle man that God wants for his noble and grand purposes, but the busy, industrious, energetic man, who will do what his hands find to do faithfully and indus? triously. This was illustrated by the call? ing of the busy fishermen, and by several old Testament examples of men who were called from well-performed duty in small things to some great and grand work for God and humanity. Some of you young men may be called to the plow. If so, plow the deepest furrow, turn the subsoil up the best and do the best and most faithful service of any plowman. Others of you may be called to drive the plane or saw or wield the hammer. If so, do it well and faithfully. Some of you may be called to stand up in our Courts of Justice. If so, do your duty to the best of your ability and faithfully as in the pres? ence of God. Perchance some of you may be called to occupy the sacred desk. If so, let the love and glory of God in? spire every effort. He desired his hearers to notice Gideon's absolute obedience to God's command. This, he said, was the most striking feature of Gideon's might. Gideon recognized tbat the "ill of the Lord must be done, so he went forth in the strength of the Lord. Gideon had as? surance of success, and this is an import-, ant factor in moral might. To hesitate Is to give up the struggle. Have a definite purpose, the speaker urged, and never for? sake it. With singleness of aim and pur? pose, Gideon, pressed forward to success. He recognized that a strict compliance with the conditions of success was' essen? tial to a mighty influence for good. Life is but a series of competitive examina? tions, and we in,ust be ready to meet then). Feeble and futile are all our efforts unless God is our helper. Gideon enjoyed this advantage. It was the sword of Gideon and the Lord that conquered. We are often called to attempt what seems Impos? sible. There is a daily conflict against the world, the flesh and the devil. Let Gid? eon's example cheer you in the conflict Gideon's valor was shown by beginning promptly this unequal struggle. He did not hesitate, but persevered. Many men fail because they don't know how' to fol? low up the viotory tljey have already gained. Yoqng men, follow up, your advantages if you would succeed. There must be no let up in the conflict botween right and wrong. Whatever you under? take in life, young men, remember to fol? low up Gideon as he followed his God. This brief synopsis does not do the ser? mon justice, The spacious auditory was filled to its ufcniogt capacity", apd every? body gave earnest attention to the able and eloquent speaker. We haye never heard or iead a more appropriate com* monooment sermon. Monday evening was beautiful and dear, with the moon shining in all its splendor. For this evening a very inter? esting programme had been arranged, and long before the appointed bouj for the exercises to begin,' it was evident that ths: Chapel would be inadequate to accommo? date the crowd. This proyed true, for when the exercises opened, there was not standing room in the Chapol, and many were tnrned away. The audience wag made up of not only our own people, but of visitors from va? rious sections of the State. Tho programme for tbu evoniug wan under the auspices of the Calophomian and Polyhymnian Literary Societies of fie Institute. Cadet M. A. Dean, of the Polyliymnian,Society, presided through? out tbo evening and introduced the speak? ers. Tho exorcises were opened with prayer by Rev. Dr. Frierson, after which Presi? dent Dean delivered a Bhort, address of welcome, and introduced the declaimers, Cadets W. C. Pearman, of i>derson, and T. G. Talbert, of Edgefield,N'of whom acquitted themsolves admirab-y. Next on the programme came the origi? nal speeches by the following Cadets on tho subjects quoted : "Integrity''?W.C. Broyles', of Broyles, S. C. "Young Men"?F. L. Brown, of An? derson County. " Rolling Stone Gathers no Moss"? T. W. Gary, of Newberry. "Something"?Percy Sharp?, of Ander? son County. These speeches were well delivered, and were very good productions. The debate followed next, on the sub? ject : "Resolved, That the masses are gov? erned more by Fashion than Reason." The affirmative side was represented by Cadets W. H. Geer, W, F. Anderson and M. 0. Ligon ; the negative by Cadets W. T. DuDcan, J. B. Townsend and G. A. Miller. The subject was ably handled by both sides, two or three of the speeches, espe? cially, being exceptionally good. The debates showed a thorough training of the mind, considerable powers of analy ays and clearly defined ideas. The even? ing's exercises were highly enjoyed by the large audience, who showed their appreciation by frequent applause. The speakers were the recipients of many beautiful floral tributes. Tuesday morning the commencement exercises were opened with prayer by Rev. A. P, Nicholson, after which the following declamations were had: T. G. Talbert, 0f Edgefield, his subject was "Do It yourself." J. D. Brown, of Anderson?subject, "In? temperance." J. M. F?nt, of this County?subject, "Sorrowing for the dead." Next came the farsical debate. Ques? tion : "Whether at public elections the votes of factions should predominate by internal suggestions, or the bias of juris? prudence." The debaters were R. E. Lee, B. W. Drummond and W, A. Meyer, all of Barnwell, and G. A. Tribble of Ander? son. This was well enacted and highly enjoyed by all present. Next were declamations by W. S. Brown, Jr., Anderson, on "Eternal Justice." B. E. Miller, Barnwell?subject, "Fam? ine in Ireland." R. E. Burriss, Anderson, on the "Sailor Boy's Dream." . A dialogue came next. It was "David and Goliath," in which W. P. Nicholson represented David and P. L. Brown the Giant. Probably the most amusing part of Tues? day's programme was "The Rival Speak? ers," in which D. M. Johnson, of Barn? well, and Ben. S. Patrick, of Anderson, appeared. This was certainly well done, and exceedingly amusing. . . Fred. W. Nardin deserves special men? tion for the beautiful manner in which he recited the "Maniac' The same might be said of S. B. Hair, whose subject was, "Asleep at the Switch." The following orations were delivered: J. D. Lowrance, of Columbia, on "Am tlon/' J, H. Earle, of Anderson, on "The claims of the age on the young men of America." C. A. Milford, of Anderson, on "Effects of immoral Literature on the minds of the Young." A. C. Tribble, of Anderson, on "Gran? deur of Self-Sacrifice." All these orations were well prepared, and showed careful study and good minds, At this stage the Rev. Ellison Capers, of Columbia, was introduced as the speak? er of the occasion. His subject was "The Guarantee which a True Manhood offers to the Boys." He said : There is ever in the human heart a ready response to that which is true and good and noble. Your callings are the high callings of your God. Generations seldom appreciate their influence on the generations to follow. The real aim of life should be the attainment of a true manhood. This is not given simply by the asking?you cannot take it from oth? ers. The heart of each separate man must work out his own manhood. The first step in the formation of that manhood is the selection of the success you expect to attain. Remember the house that was built on the sand and the one built on the rock. That house is character, and that rock is Christ. How bitter the satire of the modern infidel when he tells that he considers himself as one of a myriad of horses to help draw on the wheels of time. Such will be rhc end of e cry one who has no hope beyond this life. One very sweet thought concerning this race is that none who ever enter the true race of life shall fail. The glory of a true manhood is a common possession in which all are inter? ested. The ship's destiny will be in your keeping, young men, when those who now have charge of it pass from the stage of action. The future shall not shake your, unalterable purpose to be true and noble men, and if you live to a true and noble purpose, with the best aim, no temptation shall overtake you, except such as is com? mon to man, and you shall not be tempted above that you are able to bear. 1 amble minded, pure' hearted, courteous and true boys do us the best service. We want men whose unalterable purpose is to do right; men who cannot be bought, and who can? not be seduced from the paths pf right and' rectitude by any illusion. The govern? ment is neither better nor worse than the people who make it. You cannot sepa? rate a man's character from the work he is doing. Our lives are bo many statues that show our character. Remember that it is a rule that those who are not faithi * in the common-place things of life wn. not be faithful in matters of great moment and intense importance. Host of you be? fore me will die without much distinction, but if there should be in this audience a President, he will be a very poor President unless he has been faithful and true in the discharge of duties in the Putrick Military Institute. The future waits on this pres? ent hour. What shall that future-be? Just what you determine to make it This ia but a feeble effort to give an idea of Gen. Capers' address.' To have been appreciated it must have been heard At the conclusiqn of 0,60. Capers' ad? dress, thp following prizes were awarded: Prize in cpmposition, awarded by J. L. Tribble, Esq., to A- V- Cuter. Jn advance composition, the pritsewaB awarded to Capt. J. D. Lowrance, ol Columbia, by Ool. J. G. Olinkscalos. In book-keeping the prize was won by D. M. Johnson, of Barnwell, to whom it was delivered by Gen, Caners. In penmanship, thp gold pen was awarded t:o H. 8." Dowlirigby Gep. Capers. Certifi? cates of proficiency in book-keeping were issued to eight or ten of tho young men, whose names we did not get. The roll of honor was then read, with many naraos on it who had ended the session without a de? merit ; also the roll of honorable mention, and roll of conduct, after which the bene? diction was nronoqnced by Rev. A. P.. Nicholson, ^nd the session of 1887-8 of the Patrick'Milifary institute was ended. ' Anderson naturally and ju?tly reels proud of the ''Patrick Military Institute." The first session has just closed, aud the patrons are entirely satisfied with the very able manner in which it has been so sue cessfully conducted. Ca.pt. -John B. Pat? rick, the President of the Institute, is a man of such acknowledged ability and character, as to need nothing to be said by any one iu bis behalf. He graduated at the Citadel* after four years attendance, with honor and distinction, and without a single demerit. He Is a man of pure Chris? tian character, that shines through all his work, and tends to inspire the young men to a true manhood. Prof. W. J. Ligon, one of his assistants, is too well known for us to undertake to pass a eulogy on him. He is undoubtedly one of the best educators of young men to be found in the South. Lieut. John M. Patrick is a chip off of the old block, and takes very much after hh? father in many respects. He is certainly a young man of very great promise, endowed with those qualities which ensure success. With such a corps of teachers may not, and ought not, Anderson to proudly point to the "Patrick Military Institute," as the leading school of the up-country for the education of young men. More than a hundred names appear on the roll of attendance, and it is confidently expected that the roll of the next session will be-considerably larger. ' Long live the "Patrick Military Insti? tute." Conclusion of the Tournament. Anderson' great Tournament is a thing of the past, and our quiet little city has settled down to its normal condition. Our report last week concluded with the programme of Wednesday, and as we went to press preparations lor the Ball, which took place Wednesday evening, were going on. The Ball was given in Bleckley, Brown & Pretwell's large brick building, on East Benson street, and is pronounced the largest and most brilliant Ball ever given in Anderson. The spa? cious Hall was tastefully decorated and brilliantly illuminated, and the floor was waxed until it fairly glistened. Bear den's Band, of Augusta, furnished tbe music for the evening. The dance opened about 10 o'clock with the grand march, led by Mr. Mr. T. S. Crayton and Miss Maggie Evans, in which about thirty couples participated. Tbe dancing was continued until the small hours of the morning. There were a large crowd of spectators present, among them Qov. Bichardson and Gen. Bonham. The merry participants as well as the lookers on enjoyed the evening in the highest degree. Tbe management of the occasion could not have been better, and the An? derson Dancing Club is to be congratula? ted upon tbe success of its Fifth Annual Ball. At an early hour Thursday morning it was evident that interest in the Tourna? ment was not waning, and by 11 o'clock there was as laige a crowd in the city as there was on the preceding day. / The programme for the day opened with the Hook and Ladder Truck contest, the.time judges being Messrs. J. M. Hub bard, of Anderson, Wm. Meredith, of Belton, and Chief Jones, of Newberry, and the ladder judges were Messrs. McDowell and Dorsey, of Athens. There were only two entries in this contest, the Independents, of this city, and the Pio? neers, of Greenville. In justice to the latter company we would say that they did not come prepared to enter tbe con? test, but were prevailed upon after their arrival to enter. The Company used the Independent's Truck, and despite - the fact that, they run in heavy shoes and parade uniform, they made the rnn in 421-5 seconds. Capt. Regan has a fine set of men, and received many compli? ments from the crowd. The Independents then appeared in white tights with velvet trunks and red caps. They took hold of their Truck, and as they marched up the track to the start? ing point, it was the general verdict that no finer looking team had appeared on the track during the Tournament. Their climber, Ben. Fant, had come out of a sick bed, and was very weak, but the team was confident of success. The word "go" was given and down the track the boys run, scoring a record of 34 seconds. The boys had frequently beat this time In practicing, and had it not been for the sickness of their climber, they wonld have reduced the time at least two seo onds. The Independents were given the first prize, $100, and the second prize ($50) was given to tbe Pioneers of Greenville. Tbe next feature of the day's programme was tbe foot race, and it proved to be the most exciting event of the Tournament, The Judges selected were Messrs. F. A. Spellman and L. E. Norryce, of Ander? son, 8. B. Jones, of Newberry, and W. A. McDowell, of Athens. There were twelve entries for tbe con? test, as follows: Bloomfield, No. 4, of Athens, Cbas. Dottory; Pioneer, No. 5, of Athens, G. R Nicholson and W. A. Beeves; Pioneer, of Anderson, Will Branch and S. C. Baker; Independent Hook and Ladder, Anderson, H. W. Ste? phens, Will. MlUfcird and J. flf. Bell; South Carolina, of Anderson, Geo. Miller and B. A. Daniels j Excelsior, of New? berry, 8. T. Mc^xughrin and H. T. White. The Athens team objected to Mr. Stephens being entered, as he had not participated in the parade of Tuesday, as the rules required. Mr. Stephens had been excused from the parade on account of sickness. After a delay of an hour or so, tbe Jndges decided that Mr. Stephens was entitled to enter the contest, as his excuse for not participating in the parade was a valid one. When the rquceiS appeared on the course, loud oheers went up and excite? ment ran high. It was soon evident that Messrs. Stephens, Nicholson and Reeves were the favorites, and bets were freely offered on each of them. The run was for 100 yards, and in addition to the prize of $10, Messrs. Hubbard & Bro? our popular young jewelers, offered a fine gold watch to the successful man. The runners were strung out in a line, and at the report of a pistol. they all started down the track together, the crowd ye'-Ung and cheering as they fan. R was a close race, and the friends of Messrs. Stephens, Nicholson and Reeves claimed that each had come out ahead. There was considerable ex? citement at the time, and in the meantime the judges retired to decide who was the winner of the prize. They were closeted for two hours, but could not agree, and finally decided to let the three gentlemen named above run the race over. Reeves declined to enter the second race, and Stephens and Nicholson had the race between themselves. The friends of both were confident of success, but Stephens crossed the line fi,rst, and wa-i declared the winner of the race by at U<ast two feet. The crowd then went wild for a few min? utes, and Mr. Stephens was ce. tainly the hero of tho day. This race makes Mr. Stophena the champion of North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia. The steamer contest came next. There wcro only two entries, the Hope, of Athens, and the Pioneer, of Anderson. Tbe Hope steamer made steam in 5 min? utes and v seconds; filled and emptied the bucket in 2 minutes^ and threw a stream a distance of 109J feet, The Pio? neer steamer is much larger than the Hope steamer, and It was decided not to enter it In the quick steam contest. In filling the bucket, tho Pioneer refusied to work about the time the bucket was half filled, and that contest, as well as the djis tanco contest, had ;o bo. abandoned. Tbe South 'Carolinas, of this city, entbred the bucket contest and captured the prize, filling thft bucket In 1 minute and 15 seconds, the best time on record. The Hope steamer was given the first prize ($100) in tbe steamer eeriest, ana,' the prize ($10) for filling the 'bucket was' given to tbe South Carolinas. In the Band contest, the Young Amer ica Cornet Band, of thts city, had no com? petitors, and tho boys wore givou tho prize, which thoy would have won any? way, even if there had been six or seven Bands in the contest. Thursday evening the Banquet was given In tho same Hall where the Ball took place. It, too, was a big success. There were between four and five hun? dred guests present, and everybody seemed to enjoy the evening very much. Gen. Humphreys presided. The feast was a fine one, and the committee in charge of it deserve much praise for their excellent management of the occasion. The follow? ing were the toasts: 1. ?Proposed by Hon. E. B. Murray. South Carolina?Before the war tho constitutional thinker of the South; in the present, loyal to her time-honored principles?zealous in progressive move? ments. Response by Gen. M. L.

Responded to by S. J. McCaughrin. Thus the Tournament came to a close, and everybody records it a success from the beginning to the close. Denver Items. The farmers are still warring hot and furiously against Gen. Green. Whilst victory seems to perch upon the standard of some, others will have to make several more charges of the "Light Brigade" before the exultant shout goes up that the battle is fought aud the victory won. One of Denver's most respected and venerable citizens is something of a dreamer. A few nights ago he dreamed he was being hotly pursued by dogs, and his only way'of defense was by throwing rocks at them. In a supreme effort to hnrl consternation in the ranks of his pursuers, he made a big surge and leaped from the bed and landed kerthug on the floor. That he speedily awaked goes without the saying. Some time ago Mr. W. E. Eskew bad occasion to carry home a very large and fine chicken rooster. To make assurance double sure, the rooster had bis legs tied together and was then put into an old sack and it tied up with just a hole in it for tbr chicken's heal to be out On the homeward jonrney Sir Chantioler got tired of riding and jumped off. Diligent inquiry failed to reveal bis whereabouts until the lapse of eleven days, when some children found him in the woods about a hundred yards from the road. He was still tied and still alive, but bis legs were somewhat the worse from being in limbo so long. Several poisons ave visiting friends and relatives near here this week.

From an interview published in the Evening Graphic, of Athens.', Ga., it seems that some of the Atheus Firemen were not pleased with their trip to Anderson, and especially with their ontertainment and ac? commodations while here. The Graphic reporter alleges to have interviewed one W. F. Dorsey, of the Athens Fire Depart? ment, who, after saying all the hard things he can about Anderson, her firemen and hotels, says the Tournament was not con? ducted fairly. The Intelligencer does not care what he says about our town, our firemen and hotels, but when he says the Tournament was not conducted fairly, he simply misstates the facts. The managers of the Tournament, and all of the judges of the races, with one exception (and that exception is a Georgia man) were high toned, honorable gentlemen, who did their duty faithfully and conscientiously, and i who would not do otherwise under any conceivable circumstances. Dorsey says that our firemen did not pay any attention to the Athens firemen. In reply to this we would say that our firemen did the best they cenld, and if an Athens firemen did not receive any attention from them it was his own fault. Upon their ar? rival in the city they were met at the depot and escorted to the Pioneers' Hall, where they were served with ham, chicken, salads, sandwiches, cake of various sorts, ice cream, lemonade and cigars, and of all these there were an abundance. There was no whiskey or beer. In the Independents' Hall there were also an abundant supply of tho same eatables. These Halls were open day and night during the Tourna? ment, with negro porters always there ready to serve the visiting firemen in any manner. The firemen were invited to visit these Halls at any time. What more could our firemen do? In reply to what Dorsey says about the sleeping accommodations, we would say that it is the general opinion that some of the Athens firemen, during their stay in our city, were not in a fit cohditition to tell whether they slept on corn cobs, straw or feathers. A few of them, we are told, occupied the gutters one or two nights. Perhaps when the Graphic reporter met Dorsey, he (Dorsey) had not recovered from the too liberal use of "agaric" and "corn milk.'; ~ We had the pleasure of meeting a num? ber of the Athens firemen during their stay in our city, and found the majority of them to be true gentlemen, and we do not and cannot believe that all of them will en? dorse what Dorsey says. Before the first day's programme of the Tournament was over, our firemen found out that among the Athens firemen there were some "chronic kickers," and that nothing that could be done would satisfy them. The rules did not suit them in sev? eral instances, and they were changed three times to accommodate them. There are many other little incidents that we could mention to prove that a few of the Athens firemen were about the most contentions men that ever participated in any Tourna? ment, but we forbear. We regret to write this article, but in justice to our city and To ornament we are forced to do it. Athens' Mayor pro tern, Hon. W. A. Mc? Dowell, was here throughout the Tourna? ment, and we believe he will substantiate what we have said. Fork. The oat crop is a fair average, but the wheat crop is a failure. The sunshine of the past several days . has been well utilized by onr farmers, and the condition of the growing crop has materially improved. Mr. W. J. Comp ton, one of our popular teachers, is employing the interval of vacation profitably in canvassing the County for a patent self-heating smooth? ing iron. Look out for him. Married, by W. A. Dickson, Notary Publio, at bis residence in Townville, on Sunday morning 10th inst., Mr. Nathan Queen to Miss Tallulah MoOrary, all of Anderson County, Mr. Henry Cole, the oldest citizen of this Township, died at his residence on Sunday morning, last. A written record of Mr. Cole's age had not been preserved, but it is known that he llved.to the ad? vanced age of about 100 years. He had always enjoyed robust health, and it is worthy of mention that though he had survived three generations, yet he was able until recently to walk a distance of several miles. The deceased was never a member of any church, society, or or? ganization of any kind, but whatever might be said of his frailties, it may be truly said that his honesty and integrity of character was never questioned. His remains-were interred at Double Springs on Monday following. Vox, A good second h?nd Piano for sale, cheap at the Anderson Musio House., To Hint*?A comfortable house on West Market street. Apply to 34 R F. Diwf.r. Gen. James W. Harrison. Gen. James W. Harrison, whose death was published last weck, was at the lime of his death about seventy years of age. He was the last surviving member of the family of his father, Mr. James Harrison, of Andersonville. His brother, Col. Frank Harrison, died about ten years ago, and his sister, Mrs. Judge Whitner, about two years ago. In early life Gen. Harrison married Mary J., daughter of Mr. E. B. Benson, a prominent citizen and successful merchant of Old Fendleton, who survives him. Together they reared a large family of sons and daughters, who mourn their father's death. Having adopted the profession of law he resided at old Fickens for two or three years after his marriage in the active prac? tice of his profession. In 1843 or 1844 hs returned to Anderson, entered into part? nership with Judge Whitner, then at the bar, and from that time resided here almost continuously up to within two or three years preceding his death, when he re? moved to Walhalla with his wife and youngest daughter, to be near two of his married children who were living there. He was at one time part Owner, with the late A. 0. Norris, of the old Anderson Gazette and its editor. He had a peculiar talent for journalism, and was recognized as one of the most graceful and forcible writers in the State. Although actively engaged in the practice of his profession, he represented for several years the mu? nicipal corporation of the Town of Ander? son as Intendent, and always with satis? faction to the corporators. He also before the war represented Old Fendleton District in both branches of the Legislature?first in the House and afterwards in the Sen? ate?and was Senator for Anderson, after the division of Fendleton District, when the war broke out. He was at this time in tbe prime of life, and was justly regarded as one of the leading men in tbe councils of the State. Conservative in his views, earnest in his convictions and sagacion in counsel, he rose to a position of great usefulness and influence in the legislative halls. He was an active friend and co laborer in projecting the old Blue P.idge Railroad, was during its active prosecution np to 1860 one of the chief Counsel of the Company, and abandoned his profession after the war to become its President. He earnestly desired and strove for its comple? tion as a State enterprise, and a large issue of bonds was authorized for this purpose, but he soon found himself unable to cope with, and still less to assent, to the disre? putable methods of the men who con? trolled the State government and the road? the carpet-bag host?and retired from the presidency of the road in disgust, with his labors unrewarded and his character un smirched. Disappointed in this his last ambition, with impaired health and a for? tune scattered by the results of the war, Gen. Harrison thenceforth withdrew him? self from the public gaze and lived in re? tirement. But it was as ?*lawyer that Gen. Harri? son displayed the most marked ability, and achieved his greatest distinction, and espe? cially in equity practice. Quick of dis? cernment he seized upon the strong points of a case with almost unerring judgment, and applied to them the principles of the law with a rare discrimination, As a counsellor few were his equals and none were his superiors, and among his profes? sional brethren his judgments ranked as the highest. Possessing a weak voice and a persuasive style of speaking, he never rose to the heights of eloquence as an ad? vocate, but was so wary and acute that he often surprised and put to flight his adver? sary by some coup d'main that won him the victory. Gen. Harrison was a man of decided lit? erary tastes, and being of a retiring dispo? sition those who knew him well were not slow to perceive that he found more real pleasure in general reading and literary culture than in the active pursuits of his profession. But it ia as the genial gentle? man, and fox his many private virtues, that his friends will most delight to re? member him and to honor his memory. Amiable in disposition, of a gentle courtesy and great kindliness he had few, if any, enemies, and was greatly beloved by his friends. Generous to a fault he gave as long as he had anything to give, and would forgive a debt rather than enforce its col? lection, and of such a large-hearted chari? ty was he that be rarely spoke censoriously of another. Yet was he steadfast in prin? ciple, despising whatever was mean and despicable, and regulating his own conduct by the highest sentiments of truth and honor. Though never allied to any of the Christian churches, in outward conduct he possessed many of the noblest traits of a Christian gentleman. ''Whatsoever things were true, whatsoever things were honest, whatsoever things were just, whatsoever things were pure, whatsoever things were lovely, whatsoever things were of good re Sort," on these things he thought, and en eavored to practice them in his daily life. Deeply imbued with these Christian vir? tues who shall say that he had not in his heart that love of God and Iiis fellow-man that make up the Christian character ? A Sound legal Opinion. E, Rain ridge Monday, Esq., County Atty., Clay Co. Tex. says: "Have used Electric Bitters with most happy results. My brother also was very low with Mala? rial Fever and Jaundice, but was cured by timely use of this medicine. Am satisfied Electric Bitters saved his life." Mr. D. I. Wilcoxson, of Horse Cave, Ky., adds a like testimony, saying: He positively believes he would have died, had it not been for Electric Bitters.
