People will buy in the cheapest
markets as a general rule, but is that
the safest way? Would it not be best
to buy at home Instead of going to
Northern and Western markets, even
if the latter offer cheaper terms? Rail
road and other expenses may leave
only a small margin of profit, but the
chief objection is losing the advan
tage of capital at home. Millions of
dollars gent to bther sections for corn,
wheat, meat, flour, and other things,
is bad policy in the long run. Raise
them at home even if there is an ap
parent fraction of gain by sending
abroad for them. By proper atten
tion to all the industries, home rais
ing and home markets will be for the
best. Diversity of crops and pursuits
at home, will in the long run give the
greater prosperity to a people.
The Charleston Courier publishes
the correspondence of a writer for the
New York Herald. He says the loss
in Charleston, caused by the earth
quake will be from five to six
millions of dollars. The heaviest
losers can take care of themselves the
others will need help. This brings
down the whole loss to but little over
a million of dollars in excess.of one
half of former estimates. This is a
gratifying report. With but about six
millions instead of ten, the troubled
prospect is greatly re ieved. Com
mercially, the writer says, “Charles
ton is all right.” There is a disposi
tion to aid Charleston and tonnage
will not be wanted whether for home
or foreign markets. Work is going
on in building and repairs to the ex
tent of the means in hand, and the
workmen that can be employed. All

MARY’S BRAVE EXPLOIT.
THE HEROIC ACTION OF A CAROLINA
GIRL AT THE REVOLUTIONARY SIEGE
From the London Lilly Leaves.
During the war between England
and America, in 1779, ‘General Pre-
vost marched from Savannah and
laid seige to Charleston, but hearing
of the advance of General Lincoln, he
struck his tents and made a rapid
night retreat to Savannah; then cross
ing the Stone ferry, he fortified him
self on the beautiful Island of St.
John. On this Island stood a splendid
mansion, surrounded by extensive
pleasure grounds, made beautiful by
tropical vegetation, and where the
voices of the birds were rivalled by
the laughter of happy children at
play. For in this house there lived
fifteen children, eight of them having
been born there: the other seven lit
tle orphan cousins, adopted by Mr.
and Mrs. Gibbes on the death of their
mother, Mrs. Fenwick.
Mr. Gibbes was an invalid and a
cripple, who could only be moved a-
bout the grounds in a chair on wheels;
but he seldom required the attendance
of his faithful black servants, for the
children frisking around him, always
furnished a spirited team from their
own numbers. Only he had sometimes
to submit to the sudden desertion of all
his steeds, and entered merrily into
the general conversation and fun
when his carriage was brought to
an ignominous standstill, whilst from
behind the great trees peeped laugh
ing faces, with cries of “Papa!” “Un
Over all this social brightness and
joy the neigborhood of hostile sol
diery brought a Strange terror, which
was increased tenfold when General
Prevost selected the ground floor of
Mr. Gibbes’ beautiful house as quart
ers for his troops, leaving the family
to crowd themselves as best they
might into the upper rooms. No
more games at hide and seek in the
park for the children now, nor excur
sions in the bath-chair for the invalid,
and all feeling of home was taken
from a house shared with such in
Mrs. Gibbes was obliged to take
her husband’s place in managing the
estate and domestic affairs, leaving
the entire charge of the children to
the eldest daughter, Mary Anna, a
girl only thirteen years of age, whose
calm bravery made them all feel less
frightened in her presence.
St. John’s Island was onlv thirty
miles from Charleston, and when the
American officers heard that “Peace
ful Retreat,” the name of Mr. Gibbes’
house, was in the hands of the enemy,
they determined to rescue it, and two
galleys were at once dispatched up
the river with orders to dislodge the
enemy, but not to fire on the man
sion. A thick plantation skirting the
river was the point beyond which
they anchored, and then the darkness
and stillness of the night were broken
by the flash and roar of cannon
booming on all sides of the British en
“Officers and men, suddenly aroused
from the sleep they had thought so
secure, were rushing about in dismay
and confusion, and you may imagine
the terror of the family up stairs
when awaken to the horrors of a mid
night attack. They soon found that
it was conducted by friends, but they
knew nothing of orders to preserve
the house, and thought it best to
make a rapid escape. So the poor in
valid was carried into his chair, and
the household crept out by a back
door, brave little Mary carrying one,
and sometimes two, of the terrified
It was a new experience for them to
be wandering in the darkness, with
only the few garments* that they had
hastily dressed themselves with to pro
tect them from the pitiless rain, the
little ones stumbling in the deep mud,
and crying in their childish helpless
ness. "But it was worse when the
road at the back of the house, which
they had chosen for safety, brought
them near the river and exactly with
in the range of the guns. The shot
rattled past them, a ball crashed
through the trees close at their side, a
charge of grape-shot cut the boughs
overhead,’ but Mrs. Gibbes and Mary,
each staggering beneath their burden,
cried aloud to the Father in heaven to
be their shield, and most wonderfully
He protected them, so that they had
passed unhurt through the terrific fire
storm and reached at last the house
of one of their field hands, quite out
of reach of the guns. Into this little
place they thankfully crowded, and
Mrs. Gibbes, in a state of utter ex
haustion, sank upon a low bed; but as
the children clustered round her she
started up, the mother's eyes missing
one of the fifteen.
Oh, Mary! where is John?”
The poor little girl looked round,
and then, with a moan of anguish,
“Oh, mother, mother! he’s left!”
That was the worst moment of
all. The little child was one of the
orphans and very dear to them.
Mr. and Mrs. Gibbes, mastering their
emotion, consulted earnestly togeth
er, and then their attention was turn
ed to Mary, who had knelt for a mo
ment in prayer at the side of the bed,
and then arose with a calm, steadfast
“Mother, I will go for baby.”
The mother thought of the house,
perhaps even now in flames or filled
with bloodshed, but to aU she only
answered: “God will take care of me,’’
and pressing her child in a passion of
tenderness to her heart, the mother let
her go forth in charge of this Divine
“Cannon to right of herl
Cannon to left of her!
Volleyed and thundered!”
But unimpeded now by any burden
the brave girl sped along the danger
ous path, God covering her head in
the night of battle, and came at last to
the old home and to the room where
this boy had been sleeping, and open
ing the door she saw him sitting up
in his little cot, stretching out eager
hands to her and cooing with de
Only a few minutes more, and she
came for the third time into the ter
rific hailstorm of shot and shell; but
rushing through it as though she
bore a charmed life, and clasping the
child with a clutch that almost fright
ened him, she came out of the range of
the guns, and within range of the many
eyes that .were straining themselves
for the first glimpse of her.
“Out of the jaws of death” she was
welcomed with thanksgiving too deep
for words. The boy thus nobly res
cued lived to become General Fen
wick, famous in the war of 1812.

Sarah Gibbes stands now on the wall

A Remarkable Woman.
Reading, September 13.—Miss Pol
ly Gehris, of Washington township*
who died to-day, aged eighty-four
years, was the most remarkable wo
man in eastern Pennsylvania. She
was stoutly built, and possessed great
strength. In many ways extremely
masculine, she retained, neverthe
less, many of the best traits of woman
hood. She had a kind heart, was-
charitable and had many warm
friends. During sixty years she chew
ed and smoked tobacco. She attend
ed personally to her farm woik, doing
even the heaviest work with her own
hands, not excepting the quarrying
of stone when that was to be done.
It was nothing for her to slaughter a
half dozen pigs before breakfast.
Miss Gehris had good business ideas
and worked as she did, not because she
was obliged to, but because she liked
It. It was one of her delights to teach
young women how to become inde
pendent workers, and she contended
that women would live much longer
and be far happier if they would take
up outdoor work.
Miss Gehris was never married. It
was one of her sayings that she never
had time to devote to love making.
Hence she never wanted a beau. She
was long one of the best horsewomen
in this section. She leaves considera
ble of an estate.
Statesmen vs. Demagogues.
From the Philadelphia Record (Dem.)
For nearly a year demagogues in
and out of Congress have been pois
oning the public mind in order to
prevent a settlement of the fisheries
dispute with Canada. In the mean
time the governments of the united
States and of the United Kingdom
have been negotiating a treaty ot re
ciprocity that will put an end to this
controversy. The interests of both
the United States and Canada demand
that this question shall be closed as
speedily as possible, and reciprocity is
the only feasible inode of settlement.

In reciting some of the advantages
offered by Atlanta as the home of the-
new school, we stated that experience-
had proven it unwise to attempt to
carry industrial education hand-in-
hand with what is called a liberal or
classical education. We instanced
the outcome of the experiment of the
agricultural fund at our own State
University. We held then, and hold
now, that the attempt to combine
an agricultural college 'with a classi
cal college neither benefitted the lat
ter nor met the purposes of the form
er. The industrial education was, as
it always will be, subordinated to the
liberal education, and especially so in
the estimation of the students. We
can see no reason for doubting that
the technological school would meet
the same fate.—Constitution.
One of the Oldest Men Alive.
There is still living in this parish
one of the oldest men in America or
perhaps on the globe. He resides
near Week's pasture and papers show
that he was baptised Aug. 31, 1760.
and was a lad sixteen years old
at the date of American inde
pendence, and was admitted to bis
first communion in 1775. His name
is Henry Meyers and the land of his
nativity is Holland.
His documentary proofs are no
questionable, and were* thorough!*-
examined by Mr. Robert Brown, our
assessor, who has kindly furnished izs
with the fact. It will thus be seen*
that this venerable patriarch of the
past century is now 125 years and 3
months old. But for a terrible c&neev
which attacked him last year and has
eaten off half his face on one side,, bis

Parr in longevity. He resided for
many years in the first house this side
