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.

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

lemonade feature of the pic-nic was
indeed very enjoyable, and the young

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.

place of muoh importance in a com

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.

TOO MANY LAWYERS AND TOO
The rock that the legal profession
are in most danger of coming to"
wreck on is that of excessive charges.
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.

still will be our revenge on those
