Rain —«Ve had a refreshing slower of rain on last Sun-lay evening. SsT Have your friends solicited you to become a candidate for the legislature yet ? Mr. H. A. Thomas has lost a mule. soe his advertisement in another column, and save the reward which he will give. School.—We refer our readers to the school no> tice ol Mr. T. M. Steed which appears in this is«uic. Mr. Steed is good a teacher, and from several years experience understands how “to teach the young idea to shoot-’* We bespeak for him a liberal patronage. Anniversary.—As we have previously announced, next Saturday will be the day of the celebration of the first anniversary of the Order of Odd Fellows at this place. Preparations are beii.g made and it is confidently hoped that the celebration w.ll a be a success. Personal.—Our fellow town man, J. E. White E<q., who lias been absent for several months on a vi it to Tennessee, has returned, looking considera bly recuperat'd. He reports crops in a flourishing condition n ihat Sta*e, and estimates that corn can be purchased there after the present crop is gathered at 20 cents per bush*d. Addresses. —Messrs. Casey and Hudson, of our town, delivered on Tuesday last the Commencement Orations before the High Schools of Hepsibah, county, and Stellaville, Jefferson couu t JL —Mr. Casey at the former, and Mr. Hudson at the jHtor place. We learn that their addresses were and delivered in a manner to both. —lt is our mournful duty to record the gggfeof Mrs. Hardaway, wife of our esteemed [’. 0. Hardaway, who died at her home ] 1 ice, <.n div last. She was an ex . wife, a tend, r and loving noth- r. and an WBF hri-vtian. Truly, -‘Heath a shinin- TANARUS" tile 1 er.-av. and and grief stricken our heartfelt sympathy. Surely our smrmitiral critic has ‘‘ woodbine I.’* |^^K : t be possible?—Thomson Advertiser. th« above deadly thrust was aimed at our Mfnble Pelves, we beg leave to “wood-bine” on such a case. “May be,”our books were different, and hence, as we observe from the above paragraph that our services are greatly needed in the field of Orthography, we shall for the present devote our selves to that department. iST We return thanks to Mrs. Jacob Printup for a fine cabbage. It was ideed huge in its propor tions, weighing nearly eight pounds, and tender and white as a modem young lady’s hands. Such specimens as this would do to send to a fair, and prove what may be done here iu gardening by using a little care and industry. But we will say “nothing more” till dinner, when we shall apply this specimen of dbassica to internal improvement. Turf—. Saratoga and Long Branch moved to McDuffie —Longfellow and Harry Basset nowhere. —Ou Saturday next the great mile heat between Lausdell’s “bay Gelding” and Wilkerson’s “Bucephalous,” will come off at Thomson. A forfeit is agreed upon by the parties should ei ther withdraw from the race. We predict that pools will go off on a lively scale. No one will be allow-d to bet more than one thousand •dollars. • Death of J.W. Me Cants. -.Mr. J. W. McCanfs of this county died of Consumption at hia residence giear B. A. Willingham’s on the 20th inst, Mr. McCants for several years, had been success fully pursuing the profession of teaching and at the time ofhis death had a flourishing school. We h*d known him for some time and from our business relations with him, always found him to be au honorable hightoned gentlemen. We regretted to learn the s&d news and tender to his wife in her bereavements our heartfelt sympathies. Chirography.— Prof. Walker’s class in Penman ship is rapidly improving, and his theory of in struction evidently explodes the old fogy idea that writing is a gift, and not an art. If yoil want to be proficient in the beautiful and useful art, to ac 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. Barracue vea* Cobbhah— Gen. aB. Wright, of Augusta, makes a Greeley Speech. On Sat urday last a barbecue was given near Cobbham about eight miles distant from this place, by the McDuffie Huzzas and a number of citizens in that (vicinity. The cavalry company cf Columbia bad been in vited to be present and participate in a general drill with the Hwras, but from ssme cause, failed to attend. 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 aud «ntertained them with a spsech of an hour’s length. 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 party. He was p-oud of those Democrats who had nobly fought Greeley up to the National Convention of the party, but now, all good men should desist, swallow G eeky and go with their friends aud not'their enemies. 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 a more quiet and orderly crowd rare’y meet on such occasions. The afternoon, as well as a portion of the fore noon was devoted by the young people, to a brisk and lively exercise of graceful motions of the b 'dy accompaiuied by soul stirring strains of music. Refreshments abounded in sufficient quantity for all. Thuspassed the day, though extremely warm we enjoyed it, and presume from pppearanco that all did the same. To the McDuffie Huzzas, we tip our halt in grftlL tude, with the belief that they are all wholesouled fellows. It is a mark of the unsuccessful man, that he in* variably locks his stable door when the horse has been stolen. Thiss rtof wisdom never thinks about bodily health until it is gon *. But just as much as any disease has become seated, the power of the system to resist and throw off is weakened ; lienee time is all important. For dyspepsia, all diseases of the liver, stomach skin A kidneys, & all that begin in vitiated blood, do not wait until the trouble is con frrned but attack it b'- a timely use of Dr. Walker’s California Venegar Bitters. tfommewml.
