The Delay
In our paper has been occasioned by
the non arrivd of paper from Charles

of Clarendon County.

Thirteen months since 1 assumed by in.
vitation the editorial charge of tihe "Jan
nrr" during that time my reiations with
the 13rdss of the State has been of the moost
aigreablo and harmonious character, and
now in yielding up the trust onlided me,
I iaya notlihig to regret, save the sever
ance from a fraternity, which I have
-nt to regard and respect, and whic:h
m the high toned ionor nad courtesy
which. hiost universally anid mark their
contreversies justly entitled them to lie
respect of tIhIe world. To the patrons of
the un/er Winner," I have only to say
that I have used all the exertions that
circunistances would allow, to render tle
paper, what it should h and i retiring
and conveying to others, the duties and re
zlponusibililities which 1 have attempted failth- i
hilly to fulfill. I have the satisfaction of
knowinr thtmnt I leave lie concern iii a more
pros4perous condition, than I found it, and
in.the hands of those who are able and
willi!g to do everything to promote its ad
vanucenicit anrd the prosperitof the Dis.

" Man wants biu, little here below,
Nor wants that little tong."
The old cquotation wvhich we make above
may ihe applied to mian, as an inidividhual,
and we have no objections to it, but when
a body corprorate is spoken of in connec
tion with its wvants, tire puzzle is .to know
where to begin, and where to end is a
problem for thre next centurry to solve.

facts and induc dIt(iscuission. Th'le towvn is

a bso be an inducement for neighboring
farimers to devote more attention to stock
raising, knowing they could find a regulai
sale, and not have their meat carts mta
one day surrounded with vulture looking

and lie obliiged to return as he caune. Thc

The last want which we shall now Io
