Chirography.— Prof. Walker’s class in Penman

writing is a gift, and not an art. If yoil want to

quire as much or more knowledge of the same as
could be obtained in a commercial college at an
enormous expense, pay a nominal sum, and go to
Prof. Walker, and we warrant he will give you
satisfaction. We understand that several young
ladies in town are desirous of improving their
hand-writing, and that Prof. Walker will, perhaps,
take another class.

When we arrived, we tound a large concourse of
people present, the most attractive portion of which
was a lively ingathering of the “fairest of the fair’ ’
of Cofumbiajand McDuffie.
The first thiug on the programme was military
exercise, and soon after we were on the grounds we
perceived the Huzzas in a “line of fight** and after
wards pass ng through the various evolutions of the
tactics, with all the grace and seeming ease of
bona fide “West Pointers.’*
After this heated exercise closed, Gen, A. R
Wright, of Augusta, was introduced to the audience

We were led to believe from his introduction,
that he intended to deliver an agricultural address*
but soon ascertained that he wa9 verging iuto Greeley
politics, aud that he had come prepared to advocate
the sime, with all the ardor and courage of anew
c onvert. •
His remarks were main’y directed at the anti-
Greeley element of his hearers who he declared
could not occupy neuiral grounds, but in their opposi_
tion to Greeley, were ind reelly supporting Grant.
He urged that every Democrat should obey the
action of the Baltimore Convention, and that no
one should back his ju dgement agaiust that of his

While lie claimed to be no eu’ogist of H. G., he
could not disregard the action of his party, and
the b ave words of such men, as Bayard, Hoffman,
Voorheeß, Trumbull, Stockton aud others.
Such was the tenor of his speech. A better vin
dication of the Greeley doctrine could not perhaps
have been made.
The speech having concluded, dinner was an
nounced. and every one present was accommodated
to a plenteous supply, of is nice “cue” as we have
ever seen. The dinner certainly did credit to the
managers aud we believe all present will agree that
