DEVELOPMENTS OF THE C. C. G.& C
C. R. R.
The directors of this enterprise
met. at Abbeville last week. Noj
elaborate report has been made t
concerning their meneting, but some
Iavorable imformatlon has been
received, regarding the success
with which the financial agent in C
Europe hopes to meet. The town- s
ships will not be called to vote up- )
on the subject of subscriptions un
til next Fall. The result of the r
European agent's efforts will have
much to do with the vote of
the townships along the line. Sol(
in a great measure the conple
I ion of this road depends uPoll oth- b

A LITERARY FEAST.
Prof. C. W. Moore, Principal of
ihe Etsley Academy, favored thegi
&itizens of our town anid the sur-l'
rounding country, on last Friday C
Iight, with a truly rich literary 4
feast. Information was given se
t hrough the columns of the M Es-Is
sExoxa that there would be a
speech given to be accompanied by W
music. The large Hall of the l
Academy was nearly filled, and th
lie large audience that assembled
knew just what to expect from soig,
eloquent a man as Prof. Moore.
The only thing needed to insure a1 fo
large assemlbly of' people is the do
inere mention that Prof. Moore ai
will deliver an address. His pow- 0'
er to entertain an audience is alto- IS
gether without measure, and the'
trieat that he gives to a commliuni
ty, fond of hearing at fine speech, is tlh
'one well worthy the sincerest ap
prleciation of every one. His sub- he
ject last Friday night was: Schools Y
andu their uses. H is subject though.t i
seemingly an old one, was ti eated Cf
in a manner well calculated to in- at'
terest the profoundlest thinker of at
he 19th century. His ability to i,
take hold of' a suibject and to di- W
gest it, is decidedly marked. lie
spoke of the relation of' education. th
to christainity, andl assumed1 that
while the one could exist without m
the other, there was a connection
between the two. lie spoke flu- rm
ently with regardl to the (lead lan- a
guages and higher mathematics. al
lHe is a strong advocate of each, i.
and properly so. He 1holds that S(
the so-called dead languages e<
ar'e not (lead, but they are the liv-a
ing languages of dead nations. ni
We hope at some futnre time to et
print his speech in full, so that
