The worthy and efficient agent of
the South Carolina Railroad at this
place, Mr. T. ?. Dawaon, deserves
the thanks of the excursionists on
Wednesday lor his unremitting efforts
in behalf of their comfort whilst in

cially just when it is considered what
an amount of labor is involved in

Mb. B. M. X'ulsificr, of the Bostou
Herald quotes the statement that the

000,000 a year for spirituous and fer
mented liquors aud only 095,500,000
for education, and 818,000,000 for
religion. "I had no idea we were
such a thirsty people," he says ; "but
I have heard a good deal of viituous
indignation expressed because church
property is exempted from taxation,
and some of the States have come
very near ruining themselves with
expenoivo common schools. Sup

The revival which lias been in pro
gress at the Methodist Church in this
place was brought to a close on last
Wcdndcsdny night amid the most
solemn scene it has ever been our for
tune to witness. So deeply was the
people impressed with the sermon on
"Bo ye also ready," preached by the
Rev. Manning Brown, that when the
call was made for penitents, very
nearly half of the congregation went
up for prayer and one joined the
Church. Wo rcgrot tho necessity
which closes a meeting so full ot
promise for future good, but we trust
tho work begun may continue until
every one is brought within tho pale
of the Church.
Said a young lady to the editor a
few evenings since, "My sweetheart
is a farmer and has great, large corns
in the palms of both hands. But
though his hands arc hard, rough aud
tanned, he has a kind and noble
heart." Wo asked if the young swain
had one hundred acres and a mule of
his own. Tho reply was that he had
two hundred acres and two mules.
We pronounced him a bonanza king,
and told our fair friend to catch him
if she could. We advise all our lady
readers to be on tho lookout for all
such chances. Theso hardy plough
men arc the independent sovereigns
of tho land, and the salt of the eaith.
Would there were more of them.
How to Keep Up a Town.?Sell
your building lots at reasonable fig
ures ; if you can afford to do so, do
nate a building lot for somo large
business enterprise, and thoroby en
hance the value of town property ;
induce business men to locate in your
own town ; patronize the merchants
of your own town; speak woll of
worthy public enterprises; if any
thing should be undertaken that may
bo of benefit to the town, do not
speak ill of it to others because you
happen to bo prejudiced against it;
speak well to strangers of your town
and its people; encourage your local
newspaper by subscribing for, adver
tising iu and paying for it.
About twenty-five of our citizens,]
ladies and gentlemen, joined tho ex-1
eursion for Iho up-country and moun

among diem the venerable Dr. KUiolt,
and trust that the strengthening at

We learn that Maj. J. J. Sallcy
visited the counties of Lexington,
Edgcftold and Laurens last week and
brings back flattering and cheering
reports of matters and things general
ly. Both cotton and corn are small
but the former has time enough to
make a satisfactory yield. Maj. Sal.cy
reports the farmers of tho up-country
as being highly pleased with the "No
Fence Law.'' The peoplo make inore
milk and butter than they ever did
before. One of the blessings of the
law, not a mean one eithpr, is that
one knows exactly where to find his
cows without losing ever so much
time hunting then). One man will

ato because of the simplicity that
characterized them, and of a history
which is the foundation stone of our
present civilization qnd material
progress. To uee and live oven a
few hours amid such surroundings
was worth tho fee charged for admit

ed the couccrt considered it. We
have heard no other opinion express
ed but that it was "a grand affair,"
("brilliant success," "happily con
ceived," and "did credit to tho noble
actors who took part in the atTair and
sustained those parts bo creditably
throughout tho evening. Of course
the community is indebted to Mr.
Obidiah Primrose, whoso musical
genius could be seen in every one of

"Songe Teacher." The community,
however, will pardon us for our mak-;
ing special mention of Mrs. J. A. II.
and Miss B., whoso voices wore plain
tively sweet a"d wonderfully full yet
musical throughout their pieces. We
don't know that we have ever heard
better singing and so general through
out tho company. Tho little boys
and girls deserve special mention for
tho excellent manner in which they
