Sailing of Lynchburg Negroes for Li
beria—Thk Lynchburg Emigration Society.
—The members of this organization who left
this cily on Tuesday evening, October 31st
arrived safely in Baltimore on the following
day, and proceeded direct from the depot to
the vessel on which they embarked for Li-
Itcrin. Everything else being in readiness,
the H P. Russell left her wbiirf on Saturday,
haying be- n detained three days by the non
arrival of the baggage.
One hundred and seventy-four emigrants
were from Lynchburg and its vicinity, of
whom fourteen were but two years old and
under, Os the grown males, fifteen are far
mers, ten are tobacconists, eight are carpen
ters, six are laborers, five are shoemakers,
five are blacksmiths, and one each is a butch
er and a baker. They are die right kind of
material for a young country, aud we believe
will give a good account of themselves and
, of the land. Nothing occurred to mar the
v ifip to Baltimore, and they sailed in the best
of spirits. May Divine protection attend
them on the ocean and in all their plans and
The American Colonization Society pro
vided most liberally for the comfort and suc
cess of the party. They furnished several
with a suitable outfit, ana gave all a passage
aud support on tbe voyage—made usually
in about five weeks—aud will afford them
house room and subsistence for six months
alter their arrival. Each single adult is to
receive five acres of laud, and families ten
acres in fee simple.
Others are preparing to follow from this
city and other portions of the South, and a
large, work is opening up to the Society.
May it receive assistance sufficient for tbe
necessities of the case. —Lynchbnrg Virginian.
“Stood up is the Corner to Make
More Room!” —A woman who lived in a
small snug cottage in a village, was unfor
tunate enough to lose her husband, and set
about preparing for the tuneral obsequies.
A neighboring Mrs. Grundy, with her cloak
and umbrella, called to see thiugs, to oon
dole and to speculate. On coming into the
bouse she looked around, raised her specta
cles and her hands and said. “Why, Lor
• me! bow nicely you are fixed up for the
tuneral; well Ido declare, Lor Suz ! Dear
me! why do tell, you borried Mrs. Webster's
cheers aint you, aud Mrs. Stone's vases on
the mantel piece, they look right smart, I
declare—and there s a clock too—why where
on eartli did you get that I want to know.”
“Oh no my dear [with a solemn groan]
that's uot a clock, it smy poor dear depart
ed husband. I stood it up in the corner to
make more room.”
The Female Emigrants. —Mr. Mercer is
still busily engaged in prepaiing for the de
portation of his colony of female emigrants
from New York to Washington Territory.
He has purchased the steamship and is now
fitting her up for the accommodation of his
passengers. The party is mostly made up,
and the ship will sail during the last week
of this mouth, or the first of next. Mr. Mer
cer meets great encouragement in his work
from leading men here aud in Massachusetts.
The South Carolina Militia. —ln com
pliance with the suggestions of Gov. Perry,
a company of one hundred men was formed
on the 18th, at Kingstree, Williamsburg
District- Two more companies are in course
of organization in other quarters of the Dis
Thoroughly Tested. —Mrs. S. A. Al
len’s World's Hair Restorer and Zylo
balsamum has stood the test for twenty
years. Millions of bottles sold every year.
It is not a dye, and differs from all other
preparations, as it coutains the specific ali
ment which is the life of the hair. They are
unequalled for restoring.invigorating, beauti
fying, and dressing the hair, rendering it
soft, silky aud glossy. They cleanse the
hair, and impart to it a most delightful fra
grance. Every Druggist sells ‘.hem.
