Shoe Shop Broken Open.
- The shoe shop of Peter Simmons was
- broken open on Tuesday night by priz
ing the doors, and all of his best tools,
a gold -watch and chain, several pairs of
boots and shoes left there for repair,
and some jewelry in a trunk in the shop
taken away. Some persons live under
the shop, but as Simmons naually works
there late at night the noise did not at
tract them as anything unusual. Sim
mons was in the shop until 11 o'clock
Tuesday night. The watch was in a
vest pocket hanging against the wall.
No clue to the guilty party or parties.

powerless he is, let him be placed in uld
Ocean, far from land during a storm. A
s grand time to contemplate the Omnipo
tence of Diety. Man may battle with
man, and with all other elements, but all
these vanish into nothing beside the fury
of the winds and the waves. How futile
it seems, that Alexander, King of Mace
, donia, should have commanded the waters
of the Pamphilian Sea to recede from him.
? After a stormy passage we arrived in
safety, at South Island, at 3 p. m., and at
once proceeded to the residence of our old
friend Dr. J. Wm. Folk. The Dr. was
not at home but his genial, hospitable
wife and little ones (five) were at home,
and we were happy. The Dr. soon came
in loaded down with rice birds. No one
who has not eaten the rice birds, can form
any idea how delicious they are. We
e spent just a week with the Dr., and his
t. family, and we have never spent a week so
's pleasantly from home. The Dr. and his
good wife vie with each other in their
e efforts to make you happy. We fished,
t oystered, shrimped, and crabbed, all the
u time, and such delicious eating-crabs,
r shrimps, oysters, and fish, that we almost
d went into ecstacies, notwithstanding there
a were plenty of interludes by the Santee
mosquitoes. This is a very fine country
t for fish and game. Fish at any and all
e seasons, ducks in their time, turkeys in
d their time, and 'deer in. their time, and
- numerous flocks of marsh hens and other
r edible birds. One day we rode to the rice
e plantations on the Santee. We would
Lil like to'give a description of these fields,
t and the rice culture but both time and
, space forbid. These plantations are very
a large. One planter has 1,500 acres of rice
>f in one body, just think of it, 1,500 acres
r which will average forty bushels to the
acre. This plantation will make a net
- profit of at least $20,000. It is an expen
y sive crop, costing on an average $20 per
r, acre to prepare, cultivate and harvest.
Lt Bird minding alone costs $12 per acre.
L1 Sometimes the whole crop is lost by over
- flows. Dr. Folk is the happiest man we
, have ever met. He has every good thing
d he can wish, and the beautiful part is that
n he is not selfish in his happiness, he has a
way of imparting it to others. He has not
a I even in the midst of all these good things,
neglected his education. He can say
tops'l, mains'l, buckra, and ona very plain
g ly, in fact he speaks the rice field dialect
n fluently. Soon the time came for us to
a part. Oh how short it was ; but the fates
h had decreed, and we obeyed. There
1e was only one thing wanting to make me
k completely happy, and that was to have
ie all the little boys and girls in Newberry
n with me "to gather up the shells on the
n sea shore." Pleasant memories of a pleas.
L ant visit, to a very pleasant family on
South Island,will ever linger in our breast.
We may have something to say of the fish
law and its operations in Georgetown
