eart. I took care not to raise the patient's head, but left it low, and the blood soon flowed back to it. Consciousness returned at the same time. "Where am I! On the bed?" said my grandfather. "Certainly; you turned faint, and I thought it best to lay you there." "He brought me here! Heaven be praised for it! As I become weaker, he grows stronger, " he said. I knelt by the bedside for a while At last he consented to drink a little wine, and felt the better for it. January 1.--We have been keeping New Years cay as well as we could; my grandfather exerted himself to cheer up my spirits.--He tried to amuse me with conundrums and riddles. We feasted at supper on potatoes cooked in the ashes, toasted cheese, and toasted bread sopped in wine. The goat was not forgotten; I picked out the sweetest hay for her provender; she had a clean bed, a double ration of salt, and a triple allowance of caresses.

The Daily Dispatch: November 28, 1860., [Electronic resource], Sale of free Negroes in South Carolina. (search)
Sale of free Negroes in South Carolina. --The Charleston Mercury publishes a bill which is to be brought before the Legislature of South Carolina, proclaiming all free negroes to be slaves on and after the 1st of January, to be sold at public auction, and the proceeds to be applied to the tax funds of the various counties. The Mercury, however, accompanies its publication with the following remarks: We regard it as a measure harsh in its policy and wholly unrequired by the public exigencies, while it is mischievous in its effects, and remarkably ill-timed in its promulgation.-- The Legislature has something else to do besides the discussion of such topics as this, and we sincerely trust that, upon reflection, it will by tacit consent be consigned to the tomb of the Capulets. The measure must fall stillborn upon that body.
Calls accepted. --Rev. Joseph Sharp, of Baltimore, has accepted the call of the Baptist congregation of Berrysville, Va., to become their pastor, and will enter on his pastoral duties the first of January. Rev. G. F. Adams, of the same city, has accepted an invitation to become pastor of the Baptist Church, Hampton, Va., and intends entering upon his duties immediately.

Brooke avenue. --Any one who has been upon this much-used thoroughfare since the 1st of January, will agree with us that its residents have good reason to complain of municipal neglect. It is a complete bed of mud, which never "dries up" during the winter months, and when summer comes the dust is intolerable. The Council, at very small expense, could have the avenue gravelled, which is all the improvement asked for by the citizens of that neighborhood. Gravel can be obtained in abundance near the Branch, and the city carts in a few weeks might spread it the entire length of the avenue. It seems to us that the proposition ought to commend itself to the Council, and we hope some public-spirited member will introduce it at the next meeting. Its adoption would conduce to the comfort, convenience, health and safety of a portion of our citizens, who have a right to expect some legislation for their benefit.
