Editor ?rangthnry Time?: The pie-nic on "Ascension Day," the 20th ult., at Pinckney's Landing, under the auspices of the Satiteo Base Bali Club, to which you were in vited and did not conic, was a suc cess. Your friends would, certainly, have enjoyed your presence, iudccd your name had actually been "put in the pot'' (if yon will allow a kitchen phrase.) and you have no idea the good things you missed by not being present. If the remaining portion left after the immense crowd had heeen led and feasted, was intended as your share, /" he continued at the t iUe, the Santo? folks have surely misjudged your capacity. To ueseribo the pie-nic grounds and their surroundings, requires the pen of an artist; and such I claim not to wield. To appreciate the hills ami valleys, the grand old live-oak trees with their low-hanging, moss covered boughs, aud other natural scenery in endless variety, one must ?io there ami see, to be thoroughly convinced of their beauty. '1 he forenoon was occupied by the young ladies and geh*.leihen in pro menading, boat-riiling aud prrhajt* courting. Your correspondent saw canoes drifting down the river,- each boat containing two occupants. They didn't seem to be alarmed, or anxious to lanu?and-but?the future will tell. The married gentlemen discussed the fence law anil crop*, and the elderly married ladies, always in dispctisible ai such plat es, prepared for?dinner. Before it wat announced however, anil while the crowd was ap pa rent ly at- rest, a few gentlemen made a happy hit by inviting to speak and introducing to the audi ence Maj. T. B. W ha ley who spoke as only the Majorenn upon such oc casions. He alluded very beauti fully to the day we were celebrating, reviewed in his eloquent style the political situation County, Slate and National, and closed with a moSt ap propriate and complimentary tribute to the fair ladies. To an appreciative mind his speech upon the whole was a rare treat. Next in order came dinner, fn ?-???.</, the event of the day. I will i < t say that the tal e ;roaund under its weight of good things, but bite variety ai d quality of the viands prepared by those Santee and Provi dence hulies would unquestionably make a nuta groan if he lingered too long, "r itind the festive board." At lit o'clock P. M.. the ??SanteeV ami "f?iltaw" Hase Ball Clubs were called >ut by their captains, and after the usual preliminaries the two "Nines" altered the ticld to contest for the ?hampionship. Mr. W. L. DeHay was chosen Umpire, and at the eiose of four innings the score stood: Santee, 20 runs: Kit taw 20 runs. Mr. V. B. Parier of the San tee; and M s rs. S. C. Moorer, L. Carsou of the IS u taw made each a clean score of [our runs. The announcement of the core, was followed by the hurrahs; md then drinks?of lemonade, Mr. Kditor, which could not be surpass _'d, were freely discussed. This lemonade feature of the pic-nic was indeed very enjoyable, and the young j*cnt lernen who originated the idea in 1 so successfully carried it out. do tervc special praise. Fortunately Jiis ice-cold beverage was dispensed by married ladies, else the rustic ?ounter of the bar would have been in all probability a little crowded. Five o'clock, and we saw the last boat full of excursionists land, the ladies on board cheering the gallant larsmcn with the song, "Pull for the Shore." To sum tip, Mr. Bditor, (lest 1 consume too much of your valuable space) the ail:.if, all in all, was a jjopd success, the make up and management reflecting much credit upon this thriving neighborhood, and will long be remembered by many ivho were present as a bright page in memory's book. Occasional. A physician was walking along a road in the country one day. He met an old man wh? had a bottle of whiskey sticking out of his coat pocket. "Is this the way to the poor house, sir?" asked the old man, pointing in the direction in which he was walk ing. "No, sirT'T answered the physician; "But this is " hiving his hand on the bottle of whiskey. That doctor was both witty and wise. - mmm *- mi - Boarding hou e brilliancy; ?Sweets to the sweet," said the funny, young man, as he handed the waiter girl a faded bonquet. "Beets to the beat," returned the girl, as she push ed him a plate of the vegetables. Cotton in Sumtor county, Ga., is half a leg high, and has well formed squares. Jamison, S. C, May 24, 1881. Mr. Editor: Jamison, while not known as a place of muoh importance in a com mercial point of. view, has ncverthe lc s, come energetic spirits, who con tribute much to ugriculture, aud the success of her more prosperious rivnls. The crops in this section are, Bay, corn promising; cotton where it was planted early is as good as last year. While there are a few who can boast as yet of a good stand o*'er their general crop, there arc many farmers who have a number of acres not up. As a general thing cotton is about two weeks later than the crop of last year. Some of our early plan ters will not get entirely through planting until in June. The oat crop, while in some places almost a failure, in others about a half crop may be depended upon. ? debating Society has been in progress here for some time, and every im: g:nable subject is compounded by the. old as well as the young seeker* of knowledge. The victories I under stand, are pretty well balanced, while the older minds on some sub jects bear aloft the bloodless banner inscribed upon its folds, '?victory"? them again theyoung sodier of the literary cause, recapture the fort, thus it go *s, first one,then the other wearing the victorious plumage. Mr. J.S. Crosby, a photographer of merit has been delighting the old as well as the young, the pale faces as .well as those of tulur, the good looking, the passable aud tin1?never mind, the bright and the illiterate have all had the same courage to bear the gaze of the man of nature and the thing of art, and Mr. Crosby with his machine has given general satisfaction. I judge he has been conducting a good business, has tak en about 170 pictures. He leaves for Ft. Motte next week, and I would suggest to the citizens of that place and the surrounding country to give him a trial ami I doubt not he will accord justice where justice is due.

There is a continual low growling in the community on this subject. It is notorious that the charges are altogether out of proportion to the time given, the work given or the consideration rteeived, and all kinds of vexatious obstacles are thrown in the way of any who seek to effect a reform in this respect. The fact is, fiat the ranks of the legal professin? arc overc. o\\ tied and are being added to year by year to an extent which the public interests by no means re quire. Yet the exclusiveness that obtains with regards to methods of procedure, and the stringent rules imposed upon all the members of the craft, prevent that wholesome com petition which exists in all other trades. The consequence is that the public are robbed, and that a com paratively few of the members of the legal profession obtain for themselves the chief portion of the spoil, while the great bulk of them struggle on as best they can. Our legal exchanges are filled with discussions on law yers' costs. The community are bouiid to hare cheeper justice, if they can.?Albany Times. JOSH BILLINGS' "TRUMP CARDS." After a man gits to heSSj-cars old he kant form any new habits much; the best he kan do is to st. er hiz old ones. Knny man who kan swap horses, or katch fish, and not lie al>out it, iz az plus uz men ever git to be in this world. The sassyest man I ever met iz a hen-peeked husband when he iz away from home. An enthusiast iz an individual ] who believes about four times as | much as he kan prove, and be kan prove about four times as much nz any body believes. Thoze people who arc tricing to get to heaven on their kreed will find out at last that they didn't have a thru ticket. Too long courtships are not alwuss judicious. The partys often tire out skoreing 'fore the trot begins. Young men, learn to wait; if you undertake to sett a henn before she iz ready yon will lose yor time and confuse the ben besides. * Said a Baptist toa Methodist: "I don't like your church government. Hisn't simple enough. There's too much machinery about it." "It is true," replied the Methodist, "we have more machinery than you; but then you see, it don't take near so much water to ran it." Jamison, S. C., 2G, 1881. ICilttor Oranijtburg Hmtk: On u quiet aud secluded spot in this County, aud on the dawning of the beautiful. Sabbath morning of the 22nd iust., peacefully passed away that noble husband, the kind and affectionate fatlier, and the brave aud worthy citizen, Mr. Robert Richards', formerly of Charleston. Many here with sad hearts fol lowed his remains to their last rest ing -place and beheld him consigned to the quiet grave in Orangeburg Village.. No doubt too, those, citi zens of Charleston who knew him in his young mauhood and pride, will likewise heave a sigh and deeply mourn' the death of this gentleman, expressly thot>e.of the A-'An Fire Company Mho can remember him while an.olllcer of that Company, and who by devotion to duty while in the Fire Department com para tl vly wrecked his health. While Mr. Richards loved hi? old home in the "City; by the .Sea," unhappy calami ties preventing him iil'itning after the war, since theu he has been re siding in Orangeburg County, where he leaves a family, many relatives and a large concourse of friends, who. while they are sad at his removal from among them, love and revereuce his memory. E. G. B. reverie of TIIeVeMAL editor. Miss Eva C. Kinney, on taking the editorial chair of the Ellis, Kansas, Hr.ntltitjltt, writes iu the following light headed way: "How glad we are we've got to bean editor at last. We always thought we knew just how to run a paper, and now we've got such a splendid chance. "We'll show those stupid men ex actly how it ought to be done. You won't eatc! u getting into any fu-s s, or rowB or any thing. No, indeed, we'll use tact, and tact, you know, is the pricipal thing in running a paper. "We won't meddle in politics, and that'will save the trouble with politi cians,, nnd we'll never swear?no, never. v For the life of na we can't sec the use of swearing in a printing ?dlitff!? it <lou't make typo set- itself up; it don't create items?unless you happen to hit somebody with a club and have to pay the costs?and it don't pick up pie half'Vo quick as lingers do. Yet the editors all think they cau't run a paper without it; but we'll show 'em. "We're so glad we're an editor, and we're going to make such lots of money; we won't spend it all for beer and cigars cither. No, indeed: we'll be benevolent and do good with it. We'll give lots to the missionary society?make presents to all our friends?buy books and flowers .for the poor, and?oh yes! maybe we'll build a church and endow a collage, and have our name painted on one of the windows, with a design. Yes, of course we must have a design on the window. Lei's see, a pair of scissors and a paste-pot would be approprite, would it not ? Or a boy, a roller?but then roller hoys always have dirty faces, and the artist wouldn't want to paint dirt, would lie? "It's such fun to be au editor Think of the sweet revenge we'll take when we stuff the products of some aspiring genius into fhe waste 1 nsk ct. Aud then with what an exquisite thrill of pleasure we'll take our pen and write the author a polite note, tolling him we would have been de lighted to publish his excellent arti cle if we only had room, and wouldn't he like to nihscribe for our paper, or get us up a club? Ah, we've had ex perience. That's the way the men editors used lo do by us when we were 'only a writer.' And sweeter still will be our revenge on those editors themselves, who used to crush our budding genius with their cruel ly polite stiic tains. There's that horrid old I ear of the Hay City ?nitinel, when he published our sweet little poem about "Birdie," instead of remarking on the smoothness of the measure, or pathos of its senti liient, he intimated that we'd been sighing for a lover. It wasn't true a hit; but ah! little did that rash m m think we were one day to be his?peer. "Oh, dear! it's getting late, and another column of type to go up, on copy ready, and ull these advertise ments behind time?but it's lots of fun to be an editor." An old woman weighing about three hundred pounds, fell in cross ing the street car track, and landed in the mud and water. It sounded liko dropping a enstard from a third story window. The driver of the street car held up his mule, and call ed ont, "Say, if you will get up and let me drive on. you cansitdowu again as soon as the cat vmsses." WOMEN?TUET ARE VAST FISBUW OUT. I believe there is more popper, more potash, more saltpeter, more tar, moro aquafortis and more pluck in womuu's nature thtiniu any other na ture extant. All these, however, lie dormant in a thin sack, woven of modesty; timidity, coyness and gentleness. Once shake them up und you may look out for a blaze, ac companied by a peculiar kind of thunder. Women's flesh is thought by some to be a confection, a comjMisition of sugar and molasses, or tome other saccharine matter. Grant that it bo all sweetness; yet I would have yau know that when the acid of anger, in sult or ill-nature comes in contact with it, such aii effervescence occurs as one never saw exemplified in ginger-pop, sod litis oreoda water. Winnen, when put out of tune, arc like summer storms. At ?rst they are cloudy?make no noise, but their thinking machines are busy in mo tion. Then comes the thunder?rip ping and tearing thunder! and the lightning that flashes from their eyes is enough to appall the stoutest of hearts. You tall back in wonder ment, if not perfectly uiuazed. Un willing to retreat further, and not having a chance or the courage to slip in a pitiful "boo!" you stand aud lake it like a hitched horse in a bail storm. When the wrath of the feminine i* uearly expended,you pluck up cour age anil are down on her with argu ment, reasoning and reprimand; but is ull this going to make her turn tail? not a bit of it. Having wasted her thunder and lightning, she be gins to rain; she knows what effect that will have. With impetuous showers she drenches the furious tire that burns in your bosom, aud a freshness to every bud und blusnom of feeling. Then you begin to give in?she begins to clear off?her sky grows brighter, she goes to the ex pense of a smile, her whole horizon, landscape and la 1\ scape, look charm ing, gay aud serene, and you can't help giving her a kiss, and acknow ledging beut. So you see, my friends, that the women are I oundtoget the better of us. In them you behold the wild cat, Ionb and dove. If they can ac complish nothing by letting loose their tin tame feline propensities, they give the. juvenile sheep a trial; and if that fails the3" rely upon the loving dove. With one of the three, they seldom or never fail to effect their purpose. They lire called the weaker sex; but with what propriety it is hard for me to imagine, for I know that many of them are strong enough to lift a barrel of beer and drink out of the tap. They can draw like hor ses. They draw us to church?draw us to the tluatrc?draw us from our business?draw us into trouble?and draw us to?well, anywhere.?Ex. TitAsrLAX'riN? in the Kionx.?A gentleman anxious to ascertain the effects of transplanting by night, in stead of by day, made an experi ment, with the following results; He transplanted ten cherry trees while in bloom, commencing nt four o'clock in the afternoon. Those, transplanted during the daylight >hcd their blossoms, producing little or no fruit, while those transplanted in the dark maintained their condi tion fully. He did the same with ten dwarf trees after the fruit was one-third grown. Those transplanted in the day shed their fruit;those transplanted daring the night per fected the crop and showed no in jury from having been removed. With each of these" trees he removed some earth with the roots. The in cident, if fully vouched for, ami if a few similar experiments produce like result, will be a strong argu ment to horticulturists to do such work at night.?Fhnol Cabinet. - The following lines were picked up on Russell street a few days ago, from a young lady to a young gentle men : ?'Silver shine <fc h> do tin I lie v ay i lore you is a sin," the rose is red the vile is blua the pink is pretty and -<> isyott. ifyou love tne asi love you no girl can cut our love in too Show as the grass grow* round the stump, & c'uise you for iny m.j?:ir lump, We live between Ute railroad and river *nd I will get married whenever yo.i ?sy.
