In P+long and pleasant conversation
' econtly with a 'distinguished friend
.,Whose inind is rich with the rocollee
'tions of the past, we gathered many
tiients, not the least interesting of
Vhich was the following :
At the session of the South Catrolina
Legislature in 1814, the inembci-svere
perplexed forla suitable mat; to elect
Governor. The d fiiculty-didriot arise
from an'y scarcity of eandidates, 'for

The matter became 'worse as the time

jectionable candidate seemed inevitn
ble. .One day, however, as several of
them were couversing upon the niatter
J'udge O'Neitl, then a young man and
,present by invitation said.
"ontlemen, why not elect General
Daivid Rt. Williams ?"'
'David R. Williams lie's our man
he's the man,' they all exclaimed as
they began to scatter to tell the news.
The day of election came. on, and
Gen. Williams was elected by a large
vote. A messenger was at once -dis.
patched with a carefully prepared let.

request, this acceptance, and .hoping hei
would name the day on whichhlie wouW
take the oath or oflice. After a long
hard ride, the messenger stopped at
the generals residence in Marborough
District, we believe and .inquiredlif he
was in. He was told that WMr. Wil
liams was over at his plantalion. The
entleman said lie would ride over as
'he had a note to deliver to him as soon
'as possible. When about half way he
:met a'fine lo'king man dressed in phlain
ihomespun, and driving a teai of
'Am I on the road to the plantation
of Gen. Williams ?' asked the niessen
'Yes, sir; it is a mile further on,' was
tie reply.
'Is the General at hon.'
'No sir.'

'I am Gen. Willimins.'
'You Gen. David R. Williams ?'
'I am the man.'
'Don't deceive ine. I have an im
portant letter for Gen. Williams. If
that is your nanie,' said the doubt ing
rneisanger, -here it is,' hand'ng the let
ter 'to him.
MLr. Villiams 'opened the letter,<nd
found to his utter .astonishment. that
without his knowledge or consent, he
had been elected Governor of South
Carolina. Ile took thd ihessenger home
and entertained him for the night, pre

on which he would be in Columbia.
Tbe messenger returned.
On the appointed day, a few minutes
before 12 o'clock a man dressed in
homespun, and on horseback, rode in

made his way to the Capitol, where he

of the ,ocaker had struck the hour of
twelve tne gendral arose and delivered
the most masterly speech that had ever
been delivered there on any former
occasion. The farmer-statesmani en.
tirely electrified the assembly. i~e
made an excellent Governor.
This thing conveys a beautiful idea:
Here was a farmer elected; lie accept.

This "conical" iill is intendedto ob

beneficial changes eected may be sac
cinctly enumerated. First, the redue

from 14 'cwt. t-o 1 1-2 vwt., by 'placing
it beneath instead of tupon the fixed one.
second, the reduction of the size of the
stones in the proportion of 3.34 to 1;
and thir'dly, the giving to the Stones a
new form-that.ut the frustoin to a
