An OfRodal Paper of the fifth
Jutoial Circuit.


The Cheapest Manure.
If any thing has been made clear
by dear bought experience of the
past few years, it is that our inm-
poverished soils will no longer give
us renumerative crops without
manuring. How to restore aqd
maintian their fertility is then a
question of vital importance. A
writer in the country Gentleman
only confirms what has often beer
claimed in this journal when he
says, that the cheapest manureY
obtained undoubtedly is in gree ir
crops turned down. It isalso oner
of the best of general fertilizers
and is what is usually wanted;
this is dear from the fact that it
is reproducing a crop.
The difficulty in the case, ae
says, is that the land too often is
run down so as to be incapable of
growing a heavy yield. Land
moderately rich, therefore is ap
advantage. It requires a pretty
good soil to grow a heavy crop of
clover, peas, corn, the grains, an1
other products, without any aid'

to rye, and turned down is the
spring for corn. The corn is an
usually good stand, growing two
ears to a stalk. It was done by
one of my neighbors, a mar:pt
gardener, who had occasion to use
large quantities of manure, which
he obtians the best way he can--
usually by purchase; a little he
also makes himself.. But the
cheapest he says is to turp down
green crops, clover, rye, etc; and
he is a very careful observer.
But there is an insae f still

for over twenty years, I am told,
without manure, exhausting the
land at last, so that in working it
farther with broom corn. it proved
a loss. It was, therefore, deter-
mined to change the crop, and
oats were put upon eight acres of
the land, which was then seeded
to clover to enrich it. The crop
of oats was a fair one; the clover
took well, and covered the ground
well by fall. In the spring (the
latter part of May) the land was
ploughed and put with the rest of '
the island, to broom corn. This

Where is Home.
'Tis home where'er the heart is,
Where'er its loved ones dwell,
In cities or in cottages,
Thronged. haunts or mossy dell,
The heart's a rover ever,
And thus on wave and wild,
The maiden with her lover walks,
The mother with her child.
'Tis bright where'er the heart is,
Its fairy spells can bring
Fresh fountains to the wilderness,
And to the desert spring.
There are green isles In each ocean,
O'er which affection glide;
And a heaven on each shore,
Where love's the star that guides.
`T's free wherever the heart is,
Nor chain nor duuga-con dim,
May check the minds aspiring,
The spirits pealing hyo- -
The heart gives life is beauty,
Its glory and its power-
'Ts sunlight to its rippling stream,
And sot dew to its flowv -.

Wisconsin, Illinois, Kansas, an
other States have seasons of with
ering heat, but here the weather
was thoroughly enjoyable. Ther
was an abundance of rain whe
most needed, but no superabun
dance. The rainy season is ii
summer. The heavens do no
then assume a sullen scowl fo
weeks at a time, now drizzling
and now pouring forth its water
in toi rents, but the rain visits yo\
like a jolly old friend. Youe ar
glad to see it come; you feel re
freshed and chereful when it leaves
In the morning the sky is cleal
and the earth bathed in sunbeams
About 10 or 11 o'clock the sky i1
overcast with friendly clouds, and
a lively rain patters over the land
Then the clouds hie away with E
smiling promise to "drop dowt
upon you to-moirow." The ail
caresses your cheek with grateful
coolness; beautiful flowers, glis-.
tening with crystal drops, "open
their fragrant petals to the sio,
while tree and herb, rife with sap
put forth a vigorous growth. In
other States grass and tender
herbage may be seen scorched by
theburning July sun until they
are brown, and crisp as autumn
leaves, but here Nature is decked
in richest green throughout the
summer months. Summer glides
into winter as imperceptibly as
time flies when life is fullest of en-
joyment. Nearly a week of frosty
nights in December nipped the
tender shbots that were growing
luxuriantly. But little harm was
done, however, and now the days
are as warm, reposeful and dreamy
as the most perfect Indian-sum-
mer day of the Middle States, but
without its haziness. What could
be more delightful? Verily the
climate of Florida is an unwritten
idyl. RAMBLER.

Let Mississippi Alone.
Redfield, the well known cor-
respondent of the Cincinnati Com-
mercial, makes the following fair,
frank and, we have no doubt truth-
ful statement of the situation in
Mississippi and the practical re-
sult of the interference with the
late election, proposed by Morton's
I fail to see what Senator Mor-
ton can accomplish by sending an
investigating committee to Mis-
sissippi. The committee, if ap-
pointed, will probably consist of
three Republicans and two Dem-
ocrats. They will take an im-
mense mass of testimony, and
bring hr a majority report and a
minority report. The Republi-
cans on the committee will report
fraud, violence, intimidation and
terrorism, and the Democrats will
report that the election was per-
fectly fair and all is lovely.
That is the way with investiga-
ting committees sent to the South.
It is invariably so. There is alh-
ways a majority report and a mi-
nority report, and you can pay your
money atod take your choice.
I was in Mississippi during the
latter part of the campaign and
until after tbe election. The sum
and substance of the whole thing
is this: The blacks are notorious-

ly incompetent to govern wisely
or well. They elevated a misera-
ble set to office, and all the inter-
ests of the State suffered. County
officers were rascally and incom-
petent in proportion to the pre-
ponderance of negro voters in such
counties. A stream cannot rise
above its source, and a voting pop-
ulation as densely, incomprehen-
sible ignorantas that in most of
the counties of Mississippi cannot
elect decent men to office. Mis-
sissippi has been on the down
grade since suffrage was conferred
upon the blacks, simply because
that class of people, who were in

d the majority are incompetent to
- judge of qualifications for office.
r Look at tht officers in Vicks-
e burg and Warren counties for I-
n stance, before the whites obtained
- control of city and county. Look
n at the judiciary of the whole State.
t Men were made judges who never
r read a law book. The whole thing
, down there is a traversty on the
s very name of government. It ex-
u isted only by toleration of the
e whites, and in the late campaign
. it became a question of self-pre-
. servation, and the property hl1d-
r ers arose and turned it over.
. There was no fraud or ballot
s box stuffing, but there was an im-
Smense deal of quiet intimidation.
The blacks were given to under-
stand that they must elect a bet-
ter set'of men to office, and they
r did it. The Legislature elect is
I as superior to any Legislation
Mississippi has had in seven years,
as civilization is superior to the
lowest ignorance.
A well regulated citizen, not
burned to the marrow by partisan
virus, could not look upon the last
SMississippi Legislature without a
feeling of disgust. How such a lot
of woolly heads and thick skulls
could govern a great State wisely
or well, surpassed his comprehen-
Let Mississippi alone; let her
work out the problem, and see
what she will make of it.

S Healthful Beds.
Germany excels any county
with which I am familiar in the
cleanliness of its beds. It seems
as much a part of yearly house,
cleaning with them to have the
hair removed from the mattresses,
to have -it well beaten and sunned,
and the cover washed, as it is with
us to have cafpets whipped and
freed from their disease-besetting0
dust. I grant that it would be a
difficult and expensive undertak-
ing for an American housekeeper,
for skilled laborers are rare, and
when found must be well paid, as
they should be. Knowing the
obstacle then in the way of a
thorough renovation of our beds, we
should take all the more care to
protect and air them. Every bed
should have especially made for it,
. the size of a tick, a white tacked
comforter, not too thick, so as to
be unmanageable in washing;,over
this the sheet is spread. Every
bed in daily use should be subject-
ed to the purifying rays of the
sun at least once a week, and
should be left open for the recep-
tion of air and light somhetime be-
fore being made up. Beds not l
frequently used are often found ]
very musty and disagreeable to 1
guests. The parlor beds that
swallow their own contents by a
magic touch, are fair without, but 1
in time, for the lack of prIper .
airing, they become foul within s

Mother thus writes:. Once a

week invariably-and it was gen- b
erally when we had cold meat t
minced-I gave the children a s
dinner which was hailed with de- r
light, and looked forward to-this s
was a dish of boiled onions. The

little things knew not that they b
were taking the best medicine for .
expelling what most childern stf- 1
fer from worms. I believe mine
were kept free by the remedy alone.
Not only boiled onions for dinner,
/but chives also they were encour-
aged'to eat with their bread and
butter, and for this purpose they t
had tufts of chives in their little i
gardens. It was a medical man t
who taught me to eat boiled on- e
ions as a specific for a cold in the
chest. He did not know at the r
time, till I told him that they
were good for anything else.

years had been passed in Arkansas,
Texas, and other States, without
realizing my ideal of a perfect cli-
mate. Texas is a broad and beau-
tiful land, vast enough for an em-
pite, and possessing many re-
sources, but the freezing "north-
ers" that sweep down to its south-
ern extremity in the midst of most
beautiful weather, its parching
droughts and devastating floods
counterbalances its better qualities.
Other States have their faults,
more or less grievous, so, at
length, it was resolved to visit
Florida. Early in September,
1874 I lft Wisconsin. The
weather was unusually warm for
that Northern latitude. Friends
argued,' "If it is so warm here
you will find the heat unendura-
ble in Florida." But what was
the fact? The weather was ap-
parently as mild here as it had been
during early in September in Wis-
consin. During a short stay in an-
other State, it was remarked, "You
will arrive in the sickly season, and
will suffer for your imprudence."
It may have been the sickly sea-
son, but no one was sick. On the
contrary, the inhabitants exhibit-
ed as many portly figures and rud-
dy faces as would be seen in any
other State. However, it is not
to be recommended, perhaps, that
strangers should come here so ear-
ly in the season.
The winter that followed was
the most charming: that I ever
saw. With the exception of a re-
freshing shower that nowaind then
fell, the sky was almost -always
clear, and the breezes were as soft
as any that ever fanned the earth.
Two or three frosts, so fight as to
be utterly powerless, were but
faint reminders of rigorous winters
before experiencedd. Deciduous
frees were, by force of nature re-
luctantly compelled to drop their
summer foliage, but the more nu-
mierous pines, live oaks, magnolias,
bays, and other evergreens furnish-.
ed a verdure everywhere mingling
and contrasting with the brilliant
hues of falling leaves. That
graceful air-plant called "Spanish
moss" waved its long gray locks
in the breeze, or hung in festoons
from bough to bough. Sometimes
a tree-top thus draped would be-
prinkle the gray festoons with its
own flame-colored leaves, forming
a combination that would delight
an artist. That most lovely of
all trees, the orange, delighted the
eye with its mingled richness of
glossy, dark-green foliage and
golden orbs. The banana waved
its great tropical leaves over huge
branches of lascious fruit, and
last, but not; least, the vegetable
garden yielded a bountiful supply
of its varied growths. Winter
clasped hands with summer, and
I looked in vain for the extreme
heat that Northern and Western
people believe must exist here.

*"Live and let Live," Its Motto.
It has seemed to us for the past three
years that there is a field for successful
journalism in this city and State which
has only been partially cultivated, Or
spasmodically occupied, and that the
time has now come for a more determin-
ed effort in thii direction The unoccu-
pied fleid alluded to is that of Independ-
lent, honest, unbiased, and frank critic|
cism of public men and public measureil
in'the interest of sound morals, good
government, and a higher civilization. I

has been wrong in action or in party pol-
icy, may have been partly the necessary
outgrowth of the stirring and exciting
times just succeeding the warand ofre-
construction, and also of the dividing
of parties on new and living is-
sues. Without discussing the past
too closely, or seeming to criticlse
its salient, points too freely, it is sate
to assume that Ahe tlm' has now
come to "turn over a new leaf in our
methods of conducting politics and in
the selectingrof public servants. If par-
ty politics'in the past seemed narrow and
bigoted, and our public servants in all
the essentials that in well regulated com-
munities are deemed indespensible, have
been lamentably deficient, the occasion
no longer exists, for the Statei is rapidly
filling up with first-class men-men who
do their own thinking and their own vo,
ting, and who will be satisfied only with
a State Government that shall be hon-
estly and econonmically administered.
If the Republican party in this 'State
to-day is the synonym for honesty and
ability, and for right party ,action
and a "liberal. policy with regard to
men and measures, then let it henceforr-'
ward be sustained; but if, on the contra-
ry, it is ruled by those who care not for
the public welfare, nor Republican tri-
umps, but who merge all in personal ag-
grandisement or Individual success,
then let the new settlers, whose pros-
perity in their new homes depends so
much on good government anti honest
public servants, unite with those who
think aG th y do, of the older citizens, to
demand a recognition of the principle
that the State. is above party and the
people above all. Party triumph 1s.
meaningless and worthless unless it
brings with it public good; and the mere
success of individuals, irrespective of
public benefit, is not an object to call
forth the highest efforts of party men, or
of party organization; and It will not In
the future, for this would be just the op-
posite of the older and true idea of the
uses of party.
It seems to us now, as before observ-
ed, that there is not only room and the
opportunity for an independent newspa-
per in the State, but also a necessity for
one. This need in Florida Journalism
we propose to supply by the publication
in this citytofa Tri-Weekly and Wqekly
newspaper,.to be called "THE FLOICIDA
SuN,"' the first number to be issued on
Saturday next (January 22d). It will. bN
printed on good l.'aper.-and made as at-
tractive as good workmnnship careful
supervision, and large experience ean
make it. It will be devoted to Flurlda
matters especially, political, agricultur-
al, and industrial, thrcby furnishing a
medium of communication for new set-
tleri and the old citizens of -the State,
with friends in the North, and West, and'
the outside world generally.
The SuN will be devoted to the pecu-
liar interest of no one party, indi dual,
class, or seci ion, but the friend of all who
labor to build up the State and the na-
tioi, to make men happier, more intelli-
gent, more public spirited, and therefore
better citizens, and better1united.+-
Without ;the wish rr the purpose in tihe
least, to interfere with any other publi-
cation, may we not ^confidently appeal to
tlhe reading portion ot our State, to give
us their confidence and their patronage
in this new enterprise?
We hope to make our paper so much
of a necessity, and such a true exponent
of the progress and of the better feelings
of all/zood citizens, at tlhis Centennial
p riod in our~history, that all subscrib-:
ers et the New South, will not only re:-
new their subscription, but commend it
to their neighbors .

[From the Savanah News.
To the People of Florida.
The approaching Gubernatorial
contest in the gallant but misgov-
erned State of Florida demands
the profound consideration and
thorough preparation of its Dem-
ocratic and Conservative citizens.
Emancipation from the thraldom
of a corrupt, unprincipled and
reckless party is the prize for
which we must struggle, and
which, if the glorious examples of
Georgia, Arkansas, Alabama,
Texas and Mississippi be emulat-
ed, is surely within the grasp of
victory. But whilst there is
everything in the triumphant re-
demption of our fortunate sisters
to encourage us, it is well to re-
member that we have to contend
with no ordinary enemy. Subtle,
shrewd, politic and skilful, as it is
bold, prompt, vigorous and tena-
cious-corrupt, yet prating of
truth and justice-extravagant,
yet affecting economy and re-
trenchment -pilfering and plun-
dering, yet a hypocritical preten-
der to honesty, justice and phil-
anthropy--grasping alike the
purse and the sword-clutching,
with evil hand, the regrestration
list and the ballot-box-fertile in
expedients, and prodigal of its ill-
gotten resources-this demon of
darkness boldly proclaims itself an
angel of light, and even challen-
ges to the conflict the people
whom it has outraged and op-
It must be evident, indeed,
that this will be no ordinary strug-
gle. If we wotld vanquish and
destroy the odious tyranny of
Radicalism, with its paristical car-
pet-baggers and its despicable
scalawags: determination and en-
ergy, union and harmony, vigi-
lance and skill, are absolutely nec-
This is no time fo~r irresolution
and inaction. Let the battle-cry
of Nelson at Trafalgar--"England
expects every man to do his duty"
--be our inspiration. In this crit-
ital junction Florida expects every
citizen to do his dutyl Let those,
who have failed to register, hesi-
tate no longer. Look at the won-
derful redemption of Mississppi!
Even South Carolina is convulsed
and aroused! Shall Florida still
slumber in her claims? LET E.V-

This is no time for division and
discord. Discord and discordant
counsel only weaken, and -to be
divided in the face of the enemy is
to be beaten. Rally around the
colors; unitedly meet the issue-
an issue simple, yet powerful,
strong enough assuredly to unite
all true Floridians. That issue
ANARCHY. It is the weak point
of the enemy. Marshal the masses
upon this issue, and the enemy
must be overwhelmed.
This is no time for carelessness
and blundering. If it is vitally
necessary that the battle should
be resolutely and unitedly waged
upon- an open and direct issue,
surely it is of the utmost impor-
tance that our leaders should be
well chosen, the ablest and strong-
est who can-be selected, and that
our dispositions for the conflict
should be judiciously and skilfully
made. Especially is the selection
of candidates a serious matter.
This is no time for experiments.
The hour for policy has forever
passed-clear the decks for decided
characters and close quarters.' To
put forward a man, who, however.
capable, is yet weak in character,

vast association with the enemy,

To th4 dor of ahe Bann.:
I left New Orleans the 30th of
December, per rail via Mobile, on
the Mobile river, which is formed
by the Alabama and Tombigbee.
Pawed Montgomery, the capitol of
Alabama, on the Alabama river;

Arrived at 2 p. m. at Palatka;

humkee via Welaka twenty-five
miles, one hundred miles from
Jacksonville and one hundred and
twenty-five miles from the mnuth
the St. Johns river; thence up and
through the weird Ocklawaha, a
narrow clear stream, hemmed in
with bushes and trees and strewed
with yellow pond lillies, with room
and at times hardly room to let
the little steamer pass. It is the
resort of aligators, water-fowl,
birds, game, &c.
It is attractive and the upper
part, at times, beautifully so. The
grten palmettos, vines and shrubs,
moss grown forests and mammoth
trees are reflected in the crystal
water of the fairy stream. Pal-
mettos, dwarf palm, the bay tree,
and a variety of green shrubs,
.vines, &c., grow along the river
course. Tall, green palmettos ob-
trude the forests, which, as far as
visible, are crowded with decidu-
ous trees, now leafless, woe-begone,
and monotonous, draped with moss
as colorless as themselves.
A great nuisance on board the
steamer was the firing of guns,
otherwise we enjoyed it very much.
The weather was bright and beau-
tiful, provide excellent and better

stopped occasionally to -take in

There is no appropriate stopping
place, and but three poor, incon-

venient boats, dirty and full of
water, to be seen on the premises.
It forms a natural basin of about
two acres. The bottom is beauti-
fully varied and fringed with long
green grasses, floating gracefully
toward the surface. Adhering
to them are thousands of tiny
shells; through these masses are
channels where innumerable fish
sport to depths of twenty, sixty,
and eighty feet. In this beauti-
fully translucent water the refrac-
tion of light surrounds all sinking
objects with prismatic colors. On

vered'by crystalized lime, shells,
and innumerable pebbles, the

smallest object is distinctly seen-

To te Editor of the Banner:

Saturday to witness a novel sight
for our parts: the launching of a
We are all interested in the
progress and welfare of our State
and particularly our county and
neighborhood. We feel it our
duty to eccourage industry and
enterprise wherever found. This
being the case we come to the
front with a communication from
Moss Bluff.
Our enterprising friends of this
place, Messrs. 0. F. & E. F. Wa-
terman have, within the short
space of a few weeks, nearly com-
pleted a snug little steamer de-
signed for the upper Ocklawaha
trade. She seems staunch and, if
properly finished, she will be a
beautiful little steamer and the
very thing we need. The launch-
ing took place about three or four
o'clock, p. m., and was witnessed
by over sixty persons. The weath-
er being mild and balmy, the fair
sex were well represented. And
though they did not pull the ropes
they cheered with smiles of appro-
bation. Mr. Waterman, jr., chris-
tened the boat, as she gracefully
glided into the rippling waters of
the Ocklawaha, with the euphoni-
ous name of Ponceana.
As soon as the infant Ponceana
was safely moored, Captain
Charley, politely invited all to
come on board and take a ride
down th6 river. Ladies, gentle-
men and children were soon on
board and we were taking a pleas-
ant ride down stream, and the
new christened Ponceana was
gliding along like a thing of life.
After a very pleasant ride, which
all enjoyed, we were returned to
Mr. Morrison's ferry, and with
many thanks and good wishes for
the success of the owners of the
Ponceana we returned to our res-
pective homes.
This boat is built to suit the.
times: the low water of the river.
Her dimensions are 55 ft. long and
10 ft. wide and of very light draft.
When her machinery and load is
on she will probably draw twelve
or fifteen inches water. This will
enable her to ascend the Ocklawa-
ha as far up as Leesburg.
The owners think she will be
ready for business in two or three
weeks, when the voice of the
steam whistle will once more '"re-
"reverberate over our hills and
The owners of' the Ponceana
deserve success as a reward for
their energy and enterprise and
we hope their foudest hopes may
be realized.
Yours, very truly,

lo the E~ditor of the Banner:
I have been in Florida for about
six weeks and in that time have
found much to admire: beauti-
ful lakes, bountiful groves of

young orange trees, and some load-
ed with delicious fruit, and a
climate as wonderful to a stranger
from the cold, snowy north as a
vision of fairy land. But I have
also found a few things to find fault
with and with your permission
will mention 4ome of them.
I do not like the crooked, miser-
able roads of this State, and worst
of all there are no guide-boards,
and many times I have been sore-
ly puzzled to know which way to
go when I came, as I often did, toi
places where the road divided into
two equal parts. A small guide-i
board put up at such places would
cost but little and would be a
great benefit to strangers.
I do not like to see hogs run-
ning at large in the towns and vil-
lages. I consider them worse than-
useless anywhere, but especially
are they disgusting objects when
at large in a village. At all events ,
it looks strange to a person accus-
tomed to the neat, clean, villages
of the North. -
I do not like to see so much
drunkenness and the fact that in ,-
toxicating drinks are sold as free-
ly I consider the most discouraging ,
thing about this State. There !

J. J, Finley, of Jacksonvylle, and
-Samuel B. Stephens, FAR., of
Quincy, as suitable gentlemen to
serve the people of this State for
Governor and Lieutenant Gover-
nor and the most likely to carry suc-
qes to the Conservative party.
We hav'nt the time nor the space
Bow to dwell at length upon the
fitness of these gentlemen for these
important positions--peculiarly
S important at this juncture of our
afairs--we have time only to say
that in oar opinion the tight men
have been found. They will give
tone and dignity to the positions

emnent to the people. All good
citizens, who desire to see the
State wisely governed, can give
these gentlemen a cheerful
and cordial support. WVe trust
the premature suggestion of their
mames will not impair their chances
Before the Convention.

What He Thinks of It.
Mr. F. A. Hagnauer, the special
correspondent of the Florida Ag-
r ikuftr, in summing up his
travels on foot through the coun-
ties of Alachua, Marion, Sumter
and Hernindo, says:
Summing up the delineations
of my foot travel over Alachua,
SIumter, Marion and Hernando
eountes, certain readers will charge
me.--and they are right in their
notions--that description runs too
"uch Into details. For them J will
Bkow condense all in a sort resume.
As I have-frequently heard peo-
"ple speak in praise of this section
of Florida as a really good country
ofeligible lands with fertile soils,
I resolvedto convince myself by
personal inspection, and I found
ft the best tract ,I hove seen in
Florida, most attractive for every
agrculturai pursuit, be it fruit
and wine production, truck-farm-
iagvgrowing of cane, cotton, corn,
potatoes, and tobacco, or stock-
raising, of cattle, horses, and sheep,
and at the same time not lacking
ii 'pleasant, even delightful, in-
land scenery, and what's of vital
importance to, agricultnrists,
tnronghout healthy and salubri-
ous; and, with the few exceptions
of low regions, thoroughly free
from mosquitoes and sand flies.
YNqmberrbf olk cultivated farm
,__JaWds now lying idle and waste,
W-tbe had at cheap prices, and in-
viting the plow to turn at once,
will form another attraction. But
of the greatest advantage-and
the time cannot long delay-it will
prove that all this extensive ham-
moek belt is of easy access for
railroads, which will give to its
rich crops a ready and quick out-
let, north and west, to the great
markets of the Union, so as to
transfer thither in a few days even
the very, earliest produce of the
truck-farmer in a condition fit for
a profitable sale. The large num-

Bell Boyd, the "Confederate spy,"
will lecture in Ocala on next Monday
night in the Court House. Miss,;Boyd
will give an account of her adventures
during the late war, and promises that
they will be amusing as well as histor-
i ical. She was wounded five times and
was a prisoner of war three times and
is styled the 'heroine of the world."
Many of our citizens have an opportu-
nity of witnessing what they have nev-
er witnessed before: a female lecturer.
Admission 50 cts., children- 25 cts.
The lecture will commence at 8 o'clock.

wound, on himself *v$,'7- out rabbit
hunting with a pistol which he had
cocked in his pocket-the ball entering
the lower part of the abdomen. We
understand that he is ifn a fair way of
recovery. We have called, attention
time and again to the dangerous habit
of allowing boys to carry fire arms, but
it appears to do little good-and we
believe that a pistol is now as much a
part 6f the equipment of the average
boy as is a coat or a pair of trowsers.

A, party of tourists, consisting of
twelve or more persons, under the
chaperonage of Capt. William Ken-

Wednesday last. They paid a visit to

gee, and spoke in high terms of what
his energy and perseverance, .has ac-
complished at his place. They each
procured a bottle of Mr, Eichelberger's

evening they resorted to Mrs, 1. A.

S01 Benjamin-to see the night. bloom-

Two of the party purchased the
Benlissa place on Lake Harris in
Summer county, and the whole party
left for that vicinity last Friday. Capt.

on his return it is hoped that lie can be
induced to lecture at Vtis place and tell'
