Pic-Nic at Williamson's Mill.
We are informed that some of our noble young men have a Pic-Nic on foot, to come off at the mill of Micager Williamson, Esq., some six miles from Jefferson, on Saturday, July 10th. Everybody is invited to be sure and have plenty of the "substantials" on hand -- and then to be there and help "put them away."
