We are sorely tempted sometimes to use our prerogative a the editor of a great newspaper to give a very ridiculous account of the antics of the men who undertake to carry around the street of Farmerville too big a load of old John Barleycorn; and a ridiculous and sufficiently accurate description of the physique of the person who thus makes a public spectacle of himself to give the reader good guessing ground as to the identity of the individual. A second dose we believe would send him to the woods with his jag and jug.

Smith and Steele’s Withdrawal. As stated in a dispatch in this paper last week, Messrs. J. M. Smith and O. B. Steele have taken down the money they had deposited to guarantee their names being put on the ticket for a second race. The enormous cost to each in case of the second primary brought about the above result. Each was required to put up $9,100 – almost as much as the office would pay in the four years’ term–and they acted wisely in again pocketing their money. The matter was left for the new State Central Committee to decide. They will make the nomination immediately after they meet and have organized. The two gentlemen above named will probably be the only candidates before the committee and of right should be, as they were at heavy expense in the first primary election. The old central committee foresaw the possibility of just such a contingency as has arisen and provided the above manner of nomination. The friends of both candidates are very sanguine of the success of their favorite.

A remarkable feature of the late flurry in the cotton future market is the fact that practically no failures resulted, when the occasion seemed to call for a general collapse, the price falling no less than 480 points within three days, calling for the exchange of millions of dollars, which were readily found and paid over without any financial disasters of note, all of which indicates the great business facilities and wealth of our country. Following this came the disastrous fire in Baltimore, in which $90,000,000 more were swept to destruction, and even with this no visible effect was apparent in the money market of the country. A great nation, this. – Ex.

He owned and occupied alternately five mansions worth three or four million dollars which would have been called palaces in Uurope. — Ex.
