Longevity. – An old lady, aged 103 years, was in the Store of Messrs. Howard & Erwin last week, and sold them twenty-five pairs of men’s socks, her own spinning and knitting.  During the year she manufactured seventy-five pairs; she was born in Pa., in 1766.


Our town is in the ascendant; new buildings go up like magic.  Situated in the midst of the most fertile soil of Georgia, with stupendous water power, hard by, with daily increasing capital, and liberality, what shall retard her progress?


Our town authorities, we learn, have it in view, to enlarge at an early day, the boundaries of the Grave Yard, by the purchase of ten or fifteen acres adjoining, thus affording ample space for years to come, as a resting place for our dead!
