COLUMBIA, g; C.
Friday alorninr?, November 10.1871.1 Tb? Boatil CarollDb SarvlToir?' Asaoelev tlon-Qen. Karl y, or Virginia. The South Carolina Survivors' Asso? ciation will meet this morning, at 10 o'olook, in the court houBe. As dele gates have been appointed from most of the Comities of the State, we have rea? son to anticipate a large gathering. That the meeting will be earnest? influ? ential and moat intelligent, we feel sore. In the evening the gallant old Virginian, Gen. Jubal A. Early, will address the association. We take special pleasure in presenting to this State and this commu? nity this distinguished and patriotic sol? dier. Let bim, as ho oomes in oar midst, be greeted with a warm reception; let him, as he rises to address his old comrades, be welcomed with a hearty cheer. Gen. Early waa, prior to Virgi? nia's act of secession, j a warm Union man of the County of Franklin, in the "Old Dominion." He held that seces? sion was not the proper remedy for the evils of which Virginia justly complained. In the Virginia Convention, he opposed' the withdrawal of his State from the Union. When, however, Virginia de? cided to secede, and passed her ordinance of secession, Gen. Early acquiesced, like the dutiful son that he was of the mother of States, statesmen and soldiers. He returned to his County. His people sustained bim almost with entire unani? mity. He raised a. regiment and began his career as1 a military man. How gal? lantly be I fought and how nobly ho en? dured we need not here detail. His mi? litary record is before the country. When, the war ended, he wore the s tura of a high general officer. Now, after a lapse of more than six; years, he appears in the capital of this State to address the South Carolina survivors, many of whom so long and so gallantly fought or bled or suffered under his command. We need say no more. All that is womanly in woman, all that is manly in man, will respond to the memories that he may evoke ind io the aspirations that he may suggest. Auxiliary Joint Stock Company? We dos ire briefly to bring before the people of tho State the proposition adopted at the last meeting of the State Agricultural and Mechanical Society. The question arose-how shall we plact the society upon a better and more progres? sive basis? The answer waa and stands By forming a joint stock company, auxili? ary to tho present State Agricultural anc Mechanical Society. In this way it is proposed to angmenl the revenue derived from the preaenl society, by so much as may bo d?riv?e from the joint stock investment. In thu woy it is believed that the success of om great enterprise will be no longer be con tingent upon accident or occasional em barrassments. In this way it is believer! that the society will be enabled to enlarge its operations and make the appoint mente of our fairs, and tho fairs them selves, more worthy of our peoplo, anc more in keeping with our just aspira tiona. We trnst, therefore, that the joini stock soheme will be promptly taken oj. and endorsed by the whole State-fron where the sea sparkles in the sunlight tc where the mountains rise in grandeur from Charleston to Ooonee, and fron Horry to Abbeville. Let us, if wo can enlist the wholo State in this grand in dostrial enterprise of our annual contra fair, which, getting its tributary stream: from all quarters of Soath Carolina, abai bend to the development of all tho re sources we have of mind and mat*er. The shares aro $10 each. Subsorip tiona have already been started here. Le the work go on, Let tho amount wantei be raised. On this (Friday) evening let the joint stock company be organized The State Agrioultnral and Mechanics Society needs an ally. Let it, on thi ovening, seonro one in the formatioi of the auxiliary joint stock company. The Charleston Courier, referring t the State debt fraudulently contracte* by the Scott administration, advocate REPUDIATION, as the only means of redres left to an outraged and plundered people EXCITEMENT IN AIKEN.-We learnei at a late hour last night that mach ex oisemont had been caused in Aiken o: account of the shooting of a young gen tleman named Turner, by a mob o negroes. Tamer was wounded in on leg, whioh was afterwards amputated From what we could gathor, tho negroe thought that Tamer was the father o the obild shot by a negro woman a sbor time aioce, and who was herself shot b; an unknown person shortly afterward? The act was, therefore, apparently don in revenge for ber death. Turner, how ever, was not the father of the child. [Augusta Constitutionalist. THB COTTON OBOT OP MARION.-Th Marion Crescent says: "From oonverso tion with many planters we are incline* to hope that the ootton crop of this yea ?lay reaoh two-thirds of an average." Notw#hsUu<ljiog; IhfVolondy' aptoear., anco of the sky yesterday moi^?ngTlArge. numbera of people visited the fair grounds. Thc crowd, though not quite aa large aa on wednesday, waa still very great. The ladies turned out in great numbera, attracted by the desire to wit? ness the feats of horsemanship which were in anticipation. The first matter of interest was the ploughing match. This attracted all the farmers and planters, who are judges of this important implement, and richly were they repaid for the trouble. About twenty-five different varieties of plows were entered, embraoing every conceiva? ble variety and improvement. The work performed gave general satisfaction, showing that perfection had almost been reached in plows. Agriculturists derived many valuable bints, and will carry home with them some new ideas upon (he plow question. The next matter of interest was the awards of superiority to the oattle and led horses. Tbe former were visited at the stalls, and critically examined by competent judges, who found no little difficulty in coining tb a decision, where all are so excellent. Among the finest of the oattle we notioed the following: Devon boll, three years old, entered by E. S. Irvin, Greenville. Short horn Durham ball, three years old, W. H. Framer, Edgefield. Durham heifer, two years old, B. A. Griffin, Abbeville. Aberdeen oow, three years cid, B. A. Griffin, Abbeville. Durham cow and heifer, by same. Durham cow, Durham heifer und calf, J. W.

Harness ox, J. G. Lykes, Riohland. Heifer calf, six months old, John Alex? ander, Richland. There were others, bnt the above will suffice to give some idea of tho kind of cattle on exhibition. Among the horses, wo notioed particu? larly: One pair matched mares, Sonth Caroli? na raised, mule colt, T. G. Strauss, Abbe? ville. Two year old filly, S. M. Rice, Union. Brood mare, J. F. Oxen, Newberry. Brood maro, jock, South Carolina raised, T. J. Bynum, Newberry. Thorough-bred Morgun stallion, W. A. Beatty, Union. Thorough-bred filly, two years old, by same. Thorough-bred mare, J.

Suddle horse, light draft filly, pony mare, saddle pony, and saddle horso, by D. Wyatt Aiken. There were a number of others, but our space will not permit us to mention all. A match game of base ball was played between the Palmettoes, of this oily, and the Mutuals, of the garrison. The score stood: Mutuals, 28; Palmettoes, 5; five innings; four innings to be played to-day. At 12 o'clock preoisely, notwithstand? ing tho rain which oommenoed falling gently, tho knights who had entered for tbe sport of riding at tbe ring took thoir positions. There were fifteen in all, under command of Col. A. C. Haskell. Several of the riders appeared in cos? tume-one representing a zouave, an? other tho black knight, and a third with a full Confed?rate uniform, with trim? mings and bars of a captain of artillery. As maj be expeoted^ his appearance elicited no little applause, and every one wished in bis heart, if he did not express it with his lips, that the gray would win the day. The ridiug was very spirited and displayed somo daring horseman ship. Throe rings wero suspended from mgm n ... ,, ,? . , ., , . , f .i^glfly^-w^vj^ sue? stretched eoross tb? track, ?bout fifty feet apart. The rider, with fauoo in 1 haad, came rashing ?long at the loll ! speed of bis horse, and attempted to carry off each of the rings, whtoh wera not more than two iuohea in diameter, apon the point of his lance, ile who faded in carrying off any was greeted with no applause; bat tho one who car? ried off one, two or three rings, as he rushed madly along, was greeted with deafening cheers from the excited spec? tators. After each rider had made three attempts, in turn, to carry off the rings, the result waa announced by the judges. The first four, who alone were entitled to receive prizes, were first and second A. O. Hammitt, of Darlington, and M. ul. Buford, of Newberry, tie; and third and fourth, A. B. Joiner and J. F. Muldrow. The first two entered the lints to decide the championship. M. M. Buford, the zouave knight, carried two rings, i'hun followed A. O. Hammitt, the Confede? rate oaptain, carrying away two rings also, thus making another tie. Zouave aiade another start, and carried off two rings again, when on rushed the Con? federate captain, carrying the three rings upon the point of his lance, amid vocif?rons cheering. The old gray was once more victorious. Tbe prizes were not distributed, bat will be to-morrow, except a huge tin cup to Mr. Li. Levy, for the poorest success. Mr. Levy re? ceived his hard-earned prize amidst the congratulations of his friends, and wore it around his neck for the balance of the day. Under the judicious management of Colonel Haskell, this entertainment passed off without anything ooourriug to mar the pleasure of the occasion, and every person expressed himself as highly pleased wit h the sport and its result. The drizzling rain drove all the ladies and many of the gentlemen into the buildings, which became so densely packed as to render locomotion almost impossible, but good humor and gayety prevailed on every bund. Merry peals of laughter rang out from happy heurts, and pleasant conversation among mutual friends whiled away the hours only too rapidly. The Bazaar, as usual, was the centre of attraction. The Indies seemed to have improved upon thejr experience of the previous days, as their dinners aro better and better every day. We do not believe they can improve much more upon them. If anyoody does not be? lieve what we Bay, let them order a din? ner for to-day, and judge for themselves. We noticed quite a general displuy at one table, no less than four ex-Confede rate Generals being there Heated, enjoy ing their dinner us mnch os though ii was bacun and hard tuuk, eaten under ax old tree, or in the saddle, after twenty four hours fast. In the mechanical department quite i number of additions have been made, it the way of labor-saving maohinery. Tin Messrs. Sprsgue, of lihode Island, ex hibit specimens of hammered horse shoes made by the Perkins pattern. There ari twenty-eight samples. They have takei the prize in quite a number of fairs thi season. Tho various cotton gins were pnt ti work by steam, and attracted much ob servation from plantera and dthers inter ested in the staple. They all did thei work admirably, and the judges had m little difficulty in deciding which was th beat. A turbine water-wheel was exhibitei by Dr. C. J. Fox, of Charlotte, N. C. the patentee. This is a new wheel, pa tented within the past year, and claim many advantages over all others, esp* ciaily in simplicity and in cheapuest There are but four castings, and the en tire cost is only $150. The household pet is exhibited b Capt. F. Watson, Jr., of Edgefiolt? Capt. Wataou has but one hand, but ha already invented and manufactured sc veral important machines, of whioh thi is probably tho most valuable. It i eminently a labor saving machine, an is intended to bluck boots, clean silvei knives and forks, grind knives and sci; sors, kc, kc, aud all by turning handle or working a troddle. This i just tho thing to have in the house, i tho out-of joint times, when servants ar so hard to get. The Harrisburg family corn sheller i exhibited by Chipley k Hutchison, wb owu the right for the State. This lit tl machine costs $2 50, and will shell frot five to .six bushels of corn in au hom with case. The little hand machine costing sixty cents, will do nearly it well. Hero is a lino chance for partie wishing to buy County rights and muk their fortune, for every family needs one The Messrs. t?prugue also exhibit, un der a tent upon the grounds, their unri valed mower, which bas taken thu priz over all others at every fuir whore it hu been exhibited this season. It is a pei feot pieoo of machinery, simple in con struotion, durable, easily understood an worked, and will last, with proper care for many years. It is tho very thing fe our fiat oouutry. They also exhibit th most complete stove, that has been see in this city for many days. It combine many advantages; hus patent extensio legs, patent tea kettle, and every othe convenience, and is sold at remarkabl low prices. We are glad to see thea gentlemen taking so much interest in al fairs in this Stute, and hope they wi feet that they belong to us here, aud wi! lend us their valuable aid in re-boildin, our waste places. The finest race of any whioh has oe curred this year came off yesterday The horses were Hickory Juck, by J. A Chambers, and Rip-rap, by Boy oe k Cc Trotting mile heats, bust three in five The running was exceedingly close Hickory Jack won the race; time, 2.40 2 53, 2 51 and 2.51. Rip rap madespleu dui time, but Hickory Jack kept dos down to his work, without break-up, an won the raco by hard, steady work. Everything passed off pleasantly, an nothing occurred to mar thc pleasure c the day, excepting the rain, but tim only served to intensify tho pleasure in doors. To-day promises to be the great day of the fair. There will be a grand dis giay of riding and driving in the arena, ingle and doofble teams Ufad ?addle ? hones will all be shown off 'to th s beet advantage, and some exciting soen?? will be witnessed. fc .- -* - . A novelty, in the shape of a bull raoe -the animals to be hitched to buggies will add to the variety and tend not a little to the excitement cf the day. Se? veral races will ? also be run, for which entries have already been made of sohle of the fastest horses in the State. The attractions iuBide will fully com? pensate for the rain outside, should wo be visited with any, and we can assure everybody that they will enjoy a happy day, among all the mutters of interest aud peoplo o? interest crowded in the buildings, so there is no necessity for permitting tho rain to keep oue away. Tho committees will be busy to-mor? row examining the varions articles and awarding the premiums, which will be given out on Saturday. -? < ? > A correspondent of tho Ohariesiou News writes as follows : ?'Go ver ti or Scott accounts for the isBue of twelve millions of bonds by enumerat? ing the various issues ordered by the Legislature, including the redemption of the I illa receivable, the past doe in? terest, the t- easury relief, the land com? mission, the fifuding of the bills of the Batik of the Stato, the eterling bonds and misprints.

KEROSENE EXPLOSION.-A kerosene oil lamp exploded last ereniug, about half-past 9 o'clock, in the house of Mr. James Burke, in Anson near Cal? houn street, very severely burning his wife and daughter.

His father hud been in prison for several days. The little fellow's request to be put in the same room with his father WHS denied. No comment could put this outrage in a darker light. BUBNIKO OF Dn.

Two little children in Henry County, Virginia, while playing under the body of a wagon, were terribly wounded by the fall of the wagon body upon them, crushing them tn the earth. The younger of the two died immediately, while tho other is not expected to eur? vive. Tho Chester Reporter records a con? science case.

It is somewhat strange that a man who eau neither read nor write is one who is bound to make bia mark. We regret to see that the Savannah Republican, the oldest daily newspaper in the South, has been sold under the sheriff's hammer. The failure of the Charleston Mercury a few years Bince is another instance of the uncertainty of journalism, even when baoked by old age and reputation. No nailing, perhaps, requires more industry, tact and cease? less vigilance, than journalism. Espe? cially is this the casu with daily newspa? pers. Tho Columbia Hotel was forced to close its register yesterday-the house being packed. More pocket-picking, yesterday. Se? veral ludies at the fair grounds lost watches and purses.
