A pleasant drive of forty miles brought
our party from Salisbury! to this place
yesterday evening, and-Wwerelotiuiate
enough to find comfortable quarters among
the crowd of visitors now gathered here. '
I hese bpnngs have not been well known
to our people in late year8,Jthougu a gen
eration or two ago they were very ipopular
and annually thronged with seekers of
health and pleasure from the neighboring
counties, and especially from South Caro
lina. A half century ago" the property
belonged to. a company of wealthy plan
ters, mostly from South ! Carol iua the
Williamses, McQucens, Steeles, etc. who j
resided liere several months each summer. I
It is stated . that the beautiful but ill-
starred uanghterof Aaron Burr, Theodo- f
sia," wife of Gov. Alstoii- of. S, C. so-'I1
journed in this place a season. In its5
palmy days there were; five hotels and
six stored on the grounds. jBut tile build-
ings, one after another, were consumed
by tire, and the deed by which the prop-
erty was held was lost or burned. The
dimnessof the title deterrell the Woprie-
tors from rebuilding. Au interest in the
property has of late fallen into tlie hands
of D. N. Beunett, Esq., and Rev. C. C.
Foreman, and tliey have erected buildings J
capable oflodgiug about seventy persons.
The buildings are perfectly

limits oi one eiguiti or an acre uieru are
three valuable sirings. ! i ;
Spring No. 1, is evidently chajyerate,
and is said -to contain also magnesia, aud
io viuvuiaivu cu. uvyiiviib ofjj vio it in
creases the appetite and aids digestion.
They say, that after drinking its' waters
one can eat six hard-boiled kegs for sup
per with impunity. I know that a fresh
visitor can eat two and sleep soundly all
Spring No. 2, is sulphur land iron. It
is recommended for dropsical affections
and kiduey diseases, j Constit utions
impaired by dissipations are restored by
its waters Wonder , if the constitution
of the United States would not be bene
fitted by a draught? Perhaps the "re
turning boards' of some of "our 6ister
States might be washed clean by ki pleu-
ntui appaicanou. ic is aiso reepmmen-
ded as an antidote to tlie whiskey thirst.
Wouldn't it be well to have a
office" of this spring opened up
in our j
towns jitMl villages, where .1Proh
is unpopular? -It might take the place
of a soda fountain or ice-cream saloon.
Spring No. 3-is called the Arsenic
Spring," though there are evident traces
of iron in .the sediment of this also. Tra- I
dition ays that Indians, in ijdd tinies used
this water ior cutaneous uiseases. ic nas
recently cured cases of tetter, scald-head,
and old sores generally. It is recOmmen-
ded as good for neuralgia. j
A second attraction of these Springs is
the cool and bracing nights jenjoytd here,
The country is very broken and hilly, and
forests cover a large part ol the territory
around. Rocky River sweeps arohnd this
region, Tike a huge half-moOu, a mile and
a half distant at the nearest point, and
rushes rapidly aud tumultuous! y over
rdeky slioals, audfaJJs here and there in
cataracts,80 that the voice pf the waters
is heard in the still evening air, as the
guests lounge in the Cool; porticoes, or
wander in the grounds.'
lhis jbelt of
country is designated by the btate (jreol-
ogist as the region of "liuronic blates''
lying between the granites I of th0 Fied-
mout section and the sandstones of the
lower Fefe Dee. Unlike the, red soils and
Lsluggish Streams of more tertile regions,
this does not generate miashia, and chills
Another pleasant circumstance
visitors to these springs may cojne and
return to their homes without change of
climate, and do not need to "stay until
frost," as they must do when going to the
mountains. They are also removed from

miles from Concord, oreighteen or twenty
from Polktou or Wadesbord, on the Car

Springs. The rates of boarjd also, are ex-
tremely reasonable, and suited to the
hardness of the tunes. hree dollars a
week will procure accommodations for
adults, and two for servants and larger

nor been here loner enough to- venture a
matured opinion, but first

Do not Mow Too Close.
There was true ecouomy in the advice
of the farmer who recommended that the
lower joint grass be left iu the field for
the old brindle cow rather than be cut
aua cured for her. He was one of tlie

tendency is, however, to cut close, and
many fiue n,eadows have been injuretl
Cjose observation has taught that tim-
othv cannot be cut low, iu dry weatiher
especially, without inflicting injury. All
atterunts at close shavinsr the sward
should be avoided. Many of our most
SUCcessful farmers cut timothy nearly or
Qr quite four inches from the ground
others in guaging mowing machines
this grass take care to run them high that
it will not be cut below the second joint

Close mowing of upland meadows onght
also to be avoided, as the action of
hot sun and dry weather following
harvest affects the roots of the grass !un-
faVorbly when left without some protect-
iorj. On the other hand low, wet mow-
ing grounds will bear cutting close

fllMmces which would dry and burn up an
npforid meadow. Again, where the pirac
tiCPt is followed of toD-dressinjr the mead

the mowing may be done low and j a

.Generally speaking, grasses cut two in
ches wiu start much quicker and
thrive better than wlieu shaved close to

when the season is not a very dry one,
can be cut lower with safety , than the
coarser sorts. .2Y, 1'. World.

! The Use Of Kerosene.
We are ajaib called upon to indite
a paragraph upon the proper use . of
kerosene oil- about the fowl-house
premises. This is a valuable article
iu its way, )Liit when judiciously han
dled and applied sensibly to the
clcdiiaing of nest-boxes, the roosts of
of fowls, anil for removal of scurvv
upon the legs of these birds.
But kerosene is a powerfully pun
gent substahcej and should always
be i used with care. For wash-
j ig the fowjl roosts occasionally noth
ing! is so certain to keep the perches
free fro ni 1 ice. j For the bottoms and
sides of box-nests, ; used either for
your layers; or sitters, there is no ar
ticle so good or so sure to disperse
vermin andj keep it away from those
frequented by the hens.
; But keroSeiie should be applied be
neath the nests, upon the wood-work
ouly. It isjtod strong and penetrating
as ' to be placed where it will come in
coutact with the eggs that are be
ing; set on or to touch the bodies
ofl i the fowls. And where it is
carelessly scattered so that the hen
sits upon it: or her eggs may be touch-
! ed with this liquid it does more
harni than jgood, often permeating the
shells and destroying the embryo
chicks, as we have known the instance
tp becur. j ;!
: We therefore suggest caution in the
uke of this jarticle, as we have done
btefore ou j repeated occasions. We
ki)ow of no agent more beneficial j
when rightjy used, than this is. But
if it be not prope?ly applied to the
purpose we! have mentioned it had far
better be dispensed with altogether
If eggs are smeared with it at any
tune when first laij, or while being
set on by the j hens their vitality is
as surely destroyed as they would be
if punctured or crushed in the shells.

and look out of this front window
with me. It is a bright da', and the
ladies are out in force.
Now, let tis notice how they 'walk.
Why, they don't swing their arms at
all ! Their arms must be laced down
upon their 6ides! No, they are hold
ing their arms Btill, and see, they have
tucked their hands into those large
fur rollers which they carry on their
stomachs. Their arms look, for all
the world, like the wings of a Christ
mas turkey, all tied down and ready
to be put in the oven.
It must be hard work to walk in
It is very hard indeed, and you see
they have to walk very slowly, arid
wiggle their hips.
What a funny motion that wiggle
is. I should think fastidious people
might call it vulgar and immodest, j
Oh, well, that depends upon the
fashion, That wiggle-waggle is all
the go now. j
i I should think it would lame them
across the back. j
it Hops r there is not a lady in

noon one or two of the the party were
completely used up, and the rest were
very filling to.take the cars, though
the fare took all their money. Mr.

the relief committee here, conferred
with Mr. Douglass and the travellers,
and it was decided that the route should
be changed, and Athens, Ohio, made
the objective point. Tickets for that !

a jbox 8 by 8 inches, 8 deep, con
tains one peck ; a box 4. by 4 inches,
4 deep, contains a half peck. The
standard bushel of the United States
contains 2155.4 inches. Any box or
measure, the contents of which are
equal to 2155.4 cubic inches, will
hold a bushel of grain. In measur
ing fruit, coal, and other substances,
one fifth must be added. In other
words.; a peck measure five
times even full makes one bushel.
Thje usual practice is to "heap" the

mind, hurried by her own ardor, to
anti views, neglects the truths that
ppen before her.

this capital and he would occupy the
upper story among lawyers a place;
that was never crowded; the lower

crowded everywhere. He acted -upon
this resolution, and he had the ability
