when I knew, all about it; and I don't

villain and leave her. As he said, if
it hadn't been for the driuk, he

now. It's a bad thing for a man not
to be able to regulate his drink;
causes him lots of misfortunes.
Chaps like him ought to leave it off
altogether; still it's a hard thing to
see fellows jolly, and not join; makes
a fellow feel like a wet blanket to his
mates -they're so jolly and merry,
and he drinking his lemonade or
water. It's rather hard, I should

sail! A sail!' He was gone cranky,
you see-didn't know where he was,
and weak as an infant-couldn't eat;
so I was obliged to boil the seal-beef
and give him the gravy by spoonfuls.
Just like a child he was, and, when
he hadn't got the spoon to his Ups,
kept saying, 'A sail! A sai!' as if he
hadn't said it five hundred times
"It was hard work, for I was get?
ting weak, and so sore ronnd the
waist, ankles and neck, I could hardly
bear to move; and you see I couldn't
let Sands lie there right in the boy's
sight, so I took him round to the
other side. It took me about three
hours to get him there. I might
have thrown him off altogether, but
I didn't want any suspicion of foul
play, and there might have been if
he'd been missing when we were

waterfall all day and all night. I
could almost tell the time of day by ;
the sound of the falling water. Mid- j
day it was a regular roar, and then
about three or four o'clock in the
morning it was almost still. You
could almost see it melt Two or
three days after this the boy still

towards evening, for the sound of the
fall was less; but I couldn't move to
give the boy anything nor to get
anything myself; indeed I didn't
seem to care about it, nor about him
neither, for that matter.

THE undersigned, WHOLESALE DEAL?
ERS, advise you of the fact that
Ch&ileston is again a mar-net for the pur?
chase of goods; and in view of the early
opening, of tho Spring Trade, wo beg to
solicit ibo resumption of tho patronage so
liberallv extended to this market in the
past. We are awaro that many ola and
respected firms will bo missed froth our
number, but many familiar names will be
found in new associations, ready to supply
the wants of the trade as of yore, and other
old and new firms will bc added to out?
number at an early day.
The cash and short credit system having
been universally adopted in all the S?rth
fern markets, we are necessarily compelled
to adopt a like system as tho only safe one
on which to conduct business," and the
heavv per centage once necessary to cover
bad debts will now be avoided. Small pro?
fits and quick returns will bc tho rule, and
under its working we hope not only to
restoro to our ancient city its former pros?
perity, but to extend her trade to the full
extent of the capabilities her exce?ent
geographical position and natural advan?
tages afford. Our interest and ambition :
combine to stimulate us in attaining this

to Columbia, and its President has officially
informed u?s that the Augusta line viii be
completed to Blackville this mouth, and
that on the first of February he will receive

steamers to Savannah w?l afford faculties
for shipping in that direction. It ia our
purpose to have in storo, Ly tho last of
February, a complete and varied assort?
ment of goods in our respectivo Unes
adapted to the Spring Tracie, and every
exertion shall be made to promoto your
