A Jolly excursion party boarded
a special conch at this place on
Monday last, 14th inst., bound for
Port Royal, where they proposed
to camp for several days and in
dulge in that recreation which Dr.
Boteler describes as tho most calm,
quiet and Innocent, God over made
-angling, it is doubtful however
if this calm and quiet view would
have been expressed if Dr. Boteler
had benn a member of this partic
ular fishing party. The veliant
crew who venta.ed 208 miles from
home on this expedition, consisted
of A, W. Anderson, C. W. Tune, M.

Hitched to tim passenger train,
at .'ir* miles to thc hour, we dash
ed along that road which is
familiar to most persona in Ibis sec
tion to Augusta, with ao incident
of special Interest, except tho lam
entations of some man who had
ventured to ?nit his head out of the
window w ithout thc precaution of
holding on to his hat. Reaching
Augusta, nt near ll o'clock in tin;
night, a special train was made up
by that most clever and aecomoda
ting ol all railroads, the Central,

without a dolay,'! reaching thc de

Having provided ourselves with
provisions fora three days journey,
with tho necessary cooking uten
sil, and a cook, wo hoarded two
splendid little sail boats, Hm "Yum
Yum," which was kindly tendered
the part y by Capt Hubert Jenkins,
who also accompanied us on our
voyage to Hay Point, twelve miles
from Fort Royal, on St. Helena Is
lam). Capt Jenkins, and bis broth
er John Jenkins with half a dozen
of tho party occupied this bond, and
started out bravely on a smooth sea.
1 [alf an hour later thc "Mayflower,"
Which is to may of us as memora
ble as her snintod mother, who
landed the Puritans on Plymouth
Rock launched forth in the seething
water. Tho gently flowing waves
bore us slowly ulong, but having
scarcely n trace of wind tho pro
gress was almost ?imperceptible.
Thc boat left tin; dock at 8:80 p. m.
and after bair hours the Captain in
formed us we were two miles from
Fort Royal. It was evident that
unless tho wind ^should risc, wc
must spend ono night upon tho wa
ter. As wc stood on deck ami wit
nessed the lasl rays of thc setting
sun, a finding of utter loneliness
seemed to creep over tim party,
and now and thou some one on
bead would suggest a return to
Fort Royal. At length the wind
?lied away completely, and the talc
being against us, at 9 o'clock WO
wore compelled to drop anchor for
the night. The "Y'um Yum" being
a lighter boat bad steadily gullied
on us, ami was now completely
hidden from view. A lantern was
hoisted us a signal from our boat,
Which was caught by the "Y'um
Yum" who sent out a courier to us,
which raised thu drooping spirits
of our crew several degrees,
At nine o'clock at night thc scene
was grand,-more wild und waste
and desolate, never rose before ti
party so 111,-nccustomed to tho
bring deep- W Ii i le one of thc par
ty rocked ia tho cradle of the deep,
had fallen into the arms of Mor
pheus, another was raising a strong
protest against a mariners life, ami
a thin} declared that in thirty min
utes be would shu fl] o oft*those mor
tal colls; ami yet a fourth and fif
ty invoiced the speedy aid of a dis
ciple of thoplll-boxj while a sixth,
Wno sat mute and witti extended
arms as if endeavoring to break
tho fury of tho surging waves, af
terwards declared that ho was all
?ho offering such prayers as must
have battered thc gates of Heaven.
It was agreed by all on board that
it wits a long time between meals.
With the llrst dawn of morning,
our dusky captain, wllO30 lingo was
scarcely intelligible, made signs of
hoisting sails, ami with a wild mad
dash the faithful "Mayflower" sped
onward in her course. The tide
was once more with us and tho
wind, Which was now nearing a
gale, moro favorable, so that wo
had an entirely new experience.
Onward we rushed,-now riding on
tho crest of a foaming White cap,
now hidden in thc yawning gap it
left, so that in less than an hour
and a half we lumbal on thc sea
girt iles, Ht Helena.
The dolay occasioned by the
calm on the one hand, ami the ex
ercise afforded by the blow which
followed, conspired to produce a
set of hungry men, so that fat ba
ron mid corn bread was to many
the heat hrcnkfnst of a lifetime1.
Breakfast over, we sot to work lu
earnest, and caught a goodly sup
ply of Ano fish. Hero wo lingered
for a day and a half, having found
quarters in a number of comforta
ble cabins. Thc air was pure and
bracing. Not a Hy or mosquito dar
ed disturb tho slumber which'was
lcd on by tho Hound of (he gurgling
waves Just a few feet lu front of our
dumb il.
Tho hours passed in strolling over
tho isle, which at that time contain

day all hands and tho cook went a

hour and forty minutes, and weare
constrained to holievo that many
of the pledges and promises brought
out by tho Atorm, woro forgotten;
but ono man insisted that nothing

upon tiie "Mayflower."
Ono hour later found us ahoad
our couch, bound for Yemassec, a
station .it", udlcs from Port Royal.
Wo had determined now to test
tho merits of fresh water Ashing by
trying tho flah of tho Bulkehutchlo
Uiver. As wc pulled up to the de
pot at Ycmassec, tho Kngineer
Conductor and train hands were
engaged lu a baud to hand light
with a highland moccasin, while
passengers in the rear coach amus
ed themselves watching the mano
uvres of a school of water-mocca
sins in a pond bard by.
Wo wen? side trucked and a par
ty of which tho writer was a mem
ber, shouldered arms, and declared
war on Alligators. We had gmo
fi ft v foot, when tho w ri tor discharg
ed a load of buck shot into the
lu ad of a klug snake and thc quick
report of another gun brought low
a Coach Whip and In six inches of
his head was a Black Snnko of un
common dimensions, Darkness be
gan to gather and put an end to our
hunt for Alligators. After finding
that tho fishing grounds lay seven
and a half miles from the depot,
and no conveyance could be had,
we determined to leave tim scaly
inhabitants of the Bulkehutchlo to
the teodor mercies of n party of
Augustinian who were encamped
ou its bank.
Nothing of Interest happened un
til we roached Augusta, Thor? we
remained half a ?lay, ami started
once more in tho direction of home,
having our coach hitched behind
two heavily loaded freight boxes,
and two Huts of lumber, and in
front of sovon passenger coaches
which contained an excursion par
ty from Bradley, When wo had
gone .about H milos from Augusta,
a freight car jumped the track, and
tho train wits Stopped within thirty
teet of a trestle, which was at least
50 feel high ?ind 200 yards long. The
freight box was badly shattered,
but was bitched on, and thus it was
with many doubts and fears we
crossed the Savannah Uiver. There
it was side-tracked and our jour
ney home was speedy ami pleasant
arriving ?it Laurens at ll o'clock p.
Boforo roaching the depot a
meeting wita call atula resolution
passed unanimously that tho

who aided so materially in making
nar trip pleat ant from Hort Royal.
When it is known that the railroad
ran throe extra trains for our bene
fit, in order to prevent delays, ag'
gregating nearly two hundred
miles of extra running, the great
big heart'of this corporation is seen.
Resolutions were also passed in
favor of repeat log the trip next

Others ure dispersed over tho plain in
overy direction, racing, breaking rough ?
horses, or simply larking with ono an
other. If n mun has an especially had
horse, ho usually takes such an opportu
nity, when ho has plenty of time, to rido
him; and while saddling he iii surrounded
by a crowd of most unsympathetic asso
ciates, who greet with uproarious mirth
any misadventure. A man on a bucking
horse is always considered fair game,
every squeal and jump of tho bronco
ticing hailed with cheers of delighted
irony for tho rider and shouts to "stay
with him."
Tlic antics of ft vicious bronco nhow in
finite! variety of detail, but all nro mod
eled on ono general plan. When tho
rope Bettles round ids neck tho fight bo
gins, and it is only after much plunging
and snorting that a twist is taken over bia
nose, or else ft hackamorc-a species of
severe halter, usually made of plaited
hair, slipped on his head. While being

feet, and perhaps has to l>o blindfolded
or thrown down; and to get tho saddle
on him is quite aa dillie ult. When sad
dled, ho may get rill of his exulierant
upolu by bucking under tho saddle, or
moy reservo all bbl onorglos for tho rider.
In tho Last caso, tho man, keeping tight
hold with Ida left hand of tho cheek
strap, so ns to provont tho horse from
potting his head down until he Is fairly
seated, swings himself quickly Into tho
saddle. Up rlsc9 tho bronco's back Into

Tho Ftroii? presumption la that much
of the afiliction is caused by what aro
called modern improvements in heating
houses. Nothing has taken adequately
the pince of the chimney as a ventilator.
Open flues have grown fewer and fewer,
and tho oven principle has been substi
tuted in tho halls ns well n3 tho rooms of
tho average ill ventilated household. To
walli outdoors is to suddenly transfer
tho individual to another climate. Tho
over or ill regulated heating hos Inion ac
companied hy an increase of closet and
other drains that tho utmost caro ap
parently cannot prevent from affecting
tho Interiia- atmosphere. Our peoplo
havo l>een made physically moro tender
in valions ways. They ride In warm
cars moro and wnik less than formerly.
Tho elevator has robbed them of salutary
excrcLso they used to take. Modern coin
forts, no called, and conveniences aro
probably lieing bought too dear. They
should either bo made better or usodksa.

Itnrnlntj Polld Petroleum.
According to Tho Revue Scientifique,
Dr. Kaufmann has succeeded in solidify
ing petroleum by heating it for tlio space
of half an hour with from 1 to 8 per
cent, of common soap, until tho latter
has quito dissolved in tho petroleum,
forming with it a homogeneous mass of
tho consistency of tallow, Cut up in
cubes, this compound can be used an fuel
for heating pnrpoaes. It does not ignite
easily, but when once net on Aro it burns
steadily, nlowly and smokolessly, leaving
a carbonaceous residuo of about 2 per
cent, of its weight. Solid petroleum
burns three times ?lower than coal, but
yields n greater beat than tho latter.

This ia ? l>ctter mucllaga than you can

CauM no.l KftVct.
No vor ha<l a party a better chanco to
rovolullonl/.o a Btato th tm tho Republican
party havo Just had In Louisiana. Hut
Democrats who had property Interests
threatened hy Democratic legislation, and
Democrats who hoted eaeh other, allko
forgot ovorythlng In view of tho outside
pressure that tho Republicans brought
upon their utato. Thoy would not rubel
and thoy wottld not divido whllo tho
eitomatlvo was In accepting a party which
kopt up on assault against their state on
sectional grotintls. AH to Virginia, tho
Republicans mado tho inlstuko of allying
themselves with dlshonosly there. As re
gards tho whole south, their attlttido ls
eno of soctiomd hostility, lite density of
prejudice that ls Htlll unconvinced of tho
futility, If not of tho Injustice, of this
policy ls amazing. Sherman, (.'handler and

Tho original t?ctica lu this respect, ns
ortglnatod hy Mr. Dlalno in 187?5, woro to
disregard the south as a voling popula
tion-to abuse lt, lu fact, unjustly, with
a viow of gaining Ibo north by appeal to
a spirit of animosity, tho remnant of the
war, toward that other section. As s
cold blooded politician's policy this might
havo had somo reason then. It has none
left now. Wo doubt If a voto st tho
north ls to lw gained hy bloody shirt ?p
poola which ls not moro than neutralized
by two votes repelled by such methods.
Ordinary sagacity, therefore, should havo
soon that whllo everything ls repelled at
tho south moro strongly, If possible, than
ever, the timo has como when nothing bi
obtained at tho north to offset lt. Dut In

too much for Dotirbou politicians. They
