MARCH 1. 1!H. EDITOR'S COKRKKPOSIDKNCK A new More Notes on the Fair HomethtiiK About the City. Nkwiikrx, S. C, February 26. The fuir still continues in its attract' iv. n. sH nml the iiiu-iiiIiiikc was much in- crc.iscil bv iiriivula by ritilroiiil so that the buildings were well lillcil nil nay. n is not the lamest fair by nny means 1 have ever attended, but it is much the most pleasant and instructive. Every thin", is arranged with jierl'ect judg ment, and where the ladies control, with exquisite taste; and when it is known how enthusiastic the ladies have Isvcn, it will lie understood how prevalent is their hnppv influence over everything in doors. Tlie exhibits, while not so large as those at the Slate fairs, are very com prehensive and instructive, und the ab sence of a dense crowd erinits every thing to he thoroughly examined. The floral department is one of exquisite benutv and fascination as viewed while'winter still nominally reigns. It does uot. in fact, tin so since I huve been here, mid cvtrvtllim! tempts to open windows and outdoor life. The fish sup ply was renewed to-ilny and calls lor re newed observation, though no new 8ee imens had lieen ndded. 1 overlooked one drimrunrnl vcsteriliiv which I lcis- urelv inspected uiidct the guidance of the umiable and highly intelligent lady who oresu es over it. That was me tiepan meut of autiiuities and relies. Among these was u chair once owned nnd used liv Lord Cornwnlhs. a clock w Inch once uilorned the mantel of the Trvon palace, a gun used in the revolution by the lather of Mr. Uraham Iavis, ail anow which had been drawn Irom the body ol one ol the whites killed in battle by a Tuscii rora Indian in the early ilnysol Xewbern, many old domestic utensils used iu the last century, n silver tankard with the date of 1 7:iti, a canteen used by a revo lutionary soldier, and numerous other things of interest. Among the relics was a miniature of a lady whose lace is Isriiti tilul. and whose coilYure and dress la-tokens n long time ago. It is set in a gold medallion frame. It was found on llat tcras beach, but how long it had Ihyii there no one knows, washed nshorc in some storm alter shipwreck, and il it could speak might tell the story ol storm and the engulliug ol ship and crew and passengers, ktIi.-i)is of some high born lady on a foreign ship: lor there is noth ing Anglo Saxon about face or dress. Another interesting relic of the sea is a mass of dinner plates, lirst ernivuted to- gcilicr by lire and then as they lay on the bottom of the sea. still farther made last together by oyster shells. The bot toms ol the plates are painted with de signs very old. and very pretty. The burned ship may have Isren one of the numerous ucls of piracy, plunder and de struction which mr.rkrd the career ol the Irerbootcr Hlucla.-aru' along this coast. The mass has no slorv it can tell, and fancy must 1 1 1 1 up the outlines of the story suggestt-il by the relics. Dili 1 must leave the lair. Ncwbrrn is situated liciwccn the Xeuse und Trent rivers which here expand to ti e width each of nlmut a mile, and unite to lorm n la-iiiiiiliil bay, the lower end of which extends down towards the distant low shores until it is like look ing out to sea. Il fo ins a pretty har bor, but il is not a lively one. A lew lurge strainers ply between here and Nor folk, nnd smaller ones to the ports on the rivers and sounds. 1 lie outside com merce is small, and nt present almost the only thing like shipping to Ik seen are thr corn laden schooners from Hyde and I'anihco, nnd the numerous fishing and oyster crafts, the former now open ing in their busiest season. The streets of New U rn are nf good width, unpnved. with excellent side walks, and they generally cross at right angles, though ihere are some nleusant deviations from straight lines, anil stTcl shoot off sometimes nt most pleasant angles us if wearied of the monotony of nil the time going one wnv. Thev arc almost all tlmdetT with well grown elms which stretch their botiuhs across so n to inter lace and form long grateful vistas of shade so us to almost embower the city. The bouses are well built, tasteful, and a little oltl-lnshioned ; for ijuren Anne has not yet, to appreciable extent, obtruded her styles; and with few exceptions they arc surrounded with shrublirry and a profusion ol flowers. The streets are sandy, but not heavily to, and all of tnem, except I lie business ones are coated with grass with the exception ol one or two carriage ways, tin: mult being a quiet that is agreeable or oppressive ac cording to teniernnient. There is one notable and admirable exception. A broad street lending to the nnlional cemetery is finely inarmlamited with tlie crushed shell rock, silicate of lime quar ried algive the city on Trent river, and forms the best road I have ever travelled over, hard nnd smooth. It is one ol the streets lending out to the fair grounds, and I have been over it frequently. Such material accessible to Aslieville would speedily decide the question of street pavement. On the opposite side of the street Irom the fuir ground istliccityceinetey. This it surrounded with massive wall of this shell rock, cut and dressed as smoothly at the material will permit. Iking coin Mtrd of aa agglomeration of shells ol nil sites, the tuilnce admits no perfect smoothness. It it an admirable material for massive architecture, and 1 am sur prised to see to little of it in use, for this wall, which encloses ten acres or more, is fine object lesson. The great archway leading Into the cemetery it a fine siiecl men ol that kind of architecture, Irom its height and width, and of itself should have been suggestive of more general uses. I find.lt Impossible to more than touch nnon what I have tern and learned. It it embarrassment that it unpleasant, be tween selection and omission ; but It it unavoidable, and therefore 1 mutt use what space permits me to use. The population of the city It about M,(XK), of which the negroes constitute tbt larger part, Iwsidct which they have an exclusive negro town on the other title of Trent, known as Jamestown, which it one time bad at many at 6,(KM) Inhabitants, but It It much less now. The mercantile bueiuett) appear to be large j if the number of storct is it lair criterion. Many ol them ure as elegant nt to lie seen elsewhere, nnd some ol them do n lurge wholesale business. There are be sides, an infinity of small stores and shops. I find uo esiieciul market place, except the fish market, in the vicinity of which everv snop is a mai nei wuu iiuun dnut supplies of good Iwef, mutton, poul try, wild fowl, vegetables, etc, The fish market, while neither large nor attrac tive, is interesting, for there are con stantly arriving from the waters below the eitv, liltle tcnoouers loaoeo uowh with sliad und herring, slieepshead, spots, great wideheaded catfish, sturgeon, and other less important varieties. Ik-sides these are the little oyster vessels which discharge their cargoes ut once into the market, nnd sold by the bushel or the barrel, or they ure "shucked" by n long ill,, nf men nml bovs. and sold to till or ders of housekeepers or holds, and n ,.r,.i,t iniiiiv are sultl and consumed by invert on t he snot, culler served up wuu crackers and condiments, or eaten from the half shell, which is the H ue way to learn what is the real oyster flavor. The price of hsh. sliad especially, is regulated bv the demand from abroad. Shad sell nt"the wharf higher than could be exK-ctcd just when they arc taken from the water. Fine roc shad are 75 cents to $1,110 a pair; bucks from 50 cults to "" cents. There is good local demand; but thclargcrquautitv ispucked on ice, and shipped Xorihorseut through the State. And this is the case also with i lie ovster. 1 visited one ol the fish pack- iiiL' establislimeiitslliisalternoon. Theic in l.'iri'v ovster ciiuuerv which I did not have time to visit. Nor did 1 visit other industrial establislunests, U-cause my time was otherwise occupied. One ol these is devoted to the making of the wooden nlates wlueli are now so wiiiciv Thev are made from the sweet .inn in, as is also the wood pulp which this cstalilislimeiil produces in large qiiautilv lor piiier stocs. inert- is u large teruuzer laeiory acre in which im and fish offal is largely used, several large steam saw mills, a furniture factory, mid perhaps other itiduslrics. The irreat iiiibistrv ol the city nnd entity is truck fanning which is carried mi on n si-air to nic stupendous, lien- end Robert Ransom took me out through the truck larms this alteinoon. nun I was amazed at the extent ol the area ,-ovi-red as well as the magnitude of some of the crops on the verv outskirts of the citv, mostly on the Trent side. Weliegitn to 'cuter the trucking area, and then for live miles, with small intervals were in it The onlv crops vet seen to great extent are garden K-as. all in bloom nnd most ,,1'ilu-m lienriiiL'. and earlv cabbage most of which is heading or headed, and at Mr. loe Rhems place a large part ol the crop' is already cut and slupH-d. I'eas and cabbage were in sight all along the road ill lielils Irom live to lorty acres. This was the case al Messrs. Ilackbiirn & Willet't, as this was the only point at which we left the vehicle, I will sjieak more esacially ol it. The principal truckers are Mr. Joe Klieui. one ol me largest, n not mc larg est. Ilackbiirn iv. Willct. Win. 1 mm. pres ident of the lair. Crockett, li. K. lindlcv. colored, once It meinlier of the legislature, and a very prosarons far-im-r W. II. lirav. and I'M. Cox. The ioiut area ill cultivation is about ti.Oi 10 acres, all ainiaientlv in one field lor there are no lenccs, mid only divided bv one large creek and a lew strips Hwamos. The sod is a hulil miiiiIv loam apparently hoR-lcssly barreii, and was III lact so regarded mini witniii me nisi two or three- tears. Thorough drainage bv ditchim- has prepared it lor the plow. niid heavy manuring nnd good culture has done the rest. At ll.-ickbiiru iv. Willet't a long clay ridge a hundred or two yards iu width, protrudes Irom I lie level, and on it his houses barns, stables and dairies art placed. This ridge is covered with fine oaks, iitcKories ami popiars. Here we alighted, and the English manager kindly gave the information we sought. And we at once found that everything was done on a very large ovule and iu a systematic maimer. We entered n building on the road side in which hands were employed in slicing by a Hiwerliil machine the large rutalK-gn turnips which are immediately placed in a steaming vat preparatory to being mixed with bran ami cotton seed meal and taken to the cow stalls lor the cows, n hall bushel tub lull Uuig the allotted meal. In the rear of the slicing house was the house liirthe steam enuine which in addition to its other woik, drove a saw which provided the lumber for Un boxes mid crates in which the products of the farm ere sent to market. Then we visited the barns in which were stalled nlHiui forty milch cows of the finest breeds, and which furnished the milk wilh which Ncwla-rn is largely sup plied, the studies in which were it large numlH-r of work horses, and n uuinlier of fine mares and colts, then to the dairy, under the charge of n neat and pleasant colored woman whose charge was n model of neatness and system, and then back to the road where our English guide cave us some partieulais. He has plained for his employes this teuton lour hundred bushels ol Irish po tatoes from waich he exavtt to dig six thousand barrels He has now reaching maturity fifty acres iu cabbage Irom which he expects to rul 1(1,000 heads. He has many acres iu h-us, we did not ask how many. He has used already $5,IKH) worth of commercial lertiliiers, or from l.ooo to l,.riin ihhiiiiIs in-r acre. He has a large area iu clover and onts, ami will lollow the example of hit neigh bor iu raising many acres of cucumbers, melons and brims. "one ol the largest and most profitable crops. On one of the liirmi we passed a field of many acres in asparagus. With the exception ol the green of the cabbage, the pens and the oats, all this great ex panse of truck farm was burr, and its niidv toil suggested bnrrcneto. Hut the whole aspect will Ik changed in the gen eral wnrnilh of spring, and then it will present a tight ol gnat beauty, for sys tem and symmetry is u ten I lire of this flat and light land, and the furrows for a mile are at straight as an arrow.
