The Meeting rs ComiiBrA.?The

Heretofore the trials have taken place
on Robins Island (just ofi- the coast of

which contains about six hundred
acres, and is owned by the Eastern
Fields Trial Club. They were
induced to come South this year, and
have leased the hunting privilege on

Firemen's Paraded?The colored
fire company were out on parade on
Friday afternoon, under command of
President John D. Smart. The engine
and reel wer^-both in fine trim, and
the men were out in good force. Their
uniforms are new and handsome. After
parading through': ttev principal
streets, the company then made a halt
in front of the engine-house and prepared
for practice. This was to make
a run to the cistern near the courthouse,
reel off fifty feet of hose, and
throw a stream fifty feet. On the first
trial the run was made in line time,
and everything at the engine was ready
iu a few seconds, but unluckily there
was a delay in attaching the pipe,
owing to the fact that the wrong coupling-head
was forward. It was therefore
concluded to try again, and this
time everything worked linelv. We did
not note the time, but the run was excellent,
and there was no time lost at

McLank's Bright Hopes.?Mr. J.
Hendrix McLane is very sanguine in
his temperament;, if;'we may judge
from what he told a reporter a lew
oorn TJip f?nriv?snrmdimt. of thf>
JSrews ajuisCourier furnishes the . following:
Columbia, November 4.?J. Hendrix"
McLane has returned from Charleston. He
was interviewed this morning*by Mr. J. L.
Weber, the representative of the Cincinnati
Commercial, and made many jistounding
statements.- He said that the News and
Courier's report of the Greenback demonstration
in Charleston last night was not
correct; that the meeting was a grand success;
that the people turned out in large
numbers? that he would not give any estimate
of the crowd, but that there was a
dense throng, and that any impartial observer
could have seen that the Greenback
ers would carry Charleston county by a
large majority. He said that he would be
elected Governor of South Carolina together
with his whole ticket; that the Greenback
nominees for Congress would be
elected in every district, and that the
Greenbickers would undoubtedly elect a
working majority-in the Slate Legislature.
He declined to-give any figures, but said he
was sure of success. He also said that the
Greenbackers are thoroughly organized and
at work in every count}'; that they have
30,000 white voters on their club rolls,
and that they would get in the election
on Tilesday an almost solid colored
vote. He said the Bourbons in Camden
and Spartanburg admitted in confidential
talks with prominent G-roenb&ckers that the
result of the election is very doubtful; that
in OcnnAP. VnrV TTmnnfcnn and Williams
burg the Greenbaekers are almost solid;
that he addressed a meeting at Graham's
Cross-roads, in Williamsburg count}-, at
which were present fifteen hundred voters
?not women and-children, as the Democrats
count, tlie^r crowds?of whom notmore
tlian forty were Democrats.
Mr. Weber declares that McLane was not
drunk when he was interviewed.
THE. TRIBUSE LIE X AILED.
A?ensational Story Manufactured to Help
a Failing; Cause?Something about the
Alleged Kaid upon a Federal Spy.
There has-been considerable talk, in
this county and elsewhere, about an
alleged attack upon one Williams, a
deputy collector of revenue, while
traveling on the cars, and a subsequent
raid upon his house. As we had 110
direct information, and as susaSoccurrences
are always exaggerated, we
thnnorht it hp>st tr> await fuller informa

tion. Since then two versions of these
aiBSrs have appeared * in print?the
one in the New York Tribune (which
we have already published) and the
following in the Nates and Courier of
Columbia, November 2.?On last MonI
day the News and Courier republished a
' special dispatch to the New York-Tribune
; giving an account of an outrage-recently
| committed in Fairfield county upon John
| C. Williams, a deputy United States marshal,
and stating that "the RecKshirt Democracy
of Fairfield county ate again on the
war-path*" It is tru.e that WilHains was
assaulted and forced to leave the train, and
it is also true , that he received a written
notice warning him to leave-the county
within five days, but. it is not true that his
house was surrounded bv .thirty xliscruised
: wiuwi men, ana lire statement, conxainen in
1 the Tribune dispatch that, "the hostility of
| the Red-shirt ruffians to him is because of
; his political sentiments and the position he

tionsat his precinct is proiuiinced by those
j who are acquainted with ail the circumj
stances of the case as "a lie out of the whole
! cloth." "The Red-shirt ruffians" had
| nothing wha ever to do with the attack

j visit to his house. A purely personal affair

; the cunning of the Tribune reporter, a.- the

Scvvira! weeks, si nee a difficulty occurred
| between Mr. J. W. Taylor, the postmaster
< atJBlythewood, and 5lr. W. J. Johnson, a
j merchant at the- same, place. Taylor, bnvj.ing.a
letter of Johnson's in the postotfice
j on which three eenfcs was due, declined >:<?.
! mail it unless Johnson would pay the postj
age due. He sent Johnson word to this
j effect, when Johnson went to the postoffice,
I and. after cursing and abusing Ti'jlpr, left
the office and went' back to his store. Tay!
lor finally concluded to forward the letter,
and did so. After some hours Johnson
went back to the postoffice and assaulted
Taylor, demanding the return of the letter,
j and, drawing his pistol on the postmaster,
threatened to shoot him. Taylor.is alfiicted j
with paralysis,. and to get even, with his
assailant reported'to United States Marshal
Williams that Johnson was selling .certain
tobacco samples which had been sent him
by a Lynchburg liouse for gratuitous distribution,
and in this way was violating the
revenue laws. Williams procured a warrant
from United States CommissionerPreston
L. Melton, at Columbia, and arrested
Johnson, who was brought before
the commissioner, and after examination
was bound over for trial in the United
States Court. After the preliminary hearing
Johnson and two friends, who am said
to have been badly under the influence of
liquor, aud Williams started back to their
homes inJiairfield county on the same-train
011 the Charlotte, Columbia & Augusta
Railroad. On the tiain Williams wjis assaulted
and forced to get off the cars before
he had reached his destination.
A fr<-r these occurrences a note, written in
a disguised hand and signed "Winn.-boro
Kuklux," was .dropped into the postofliee
at Blythewooa, warning Mr. Tay.lor. to
leave the county, within five days or that he
would be visited; and on Wednesday night,
October. 18,.. Deputy Marshal Williams's
house was raided by seven men, instead of
I thirty as the-. Tribune has it, and. a notice
[ similar to that iierved upon Postmaster
I Taylor was .left.for. him. While the midI
inflr nor+v worA-An thft WflV t?A Wlllifl TW'si
house they stopped at a wliite man's house
and at a negro's, house and behaved in a
; most outrageous manner, cursing, shooting
their pistols and calling the men out of
their houses to draw water for them. No
aetural violence,-, however, whs done to any.
one either along the route or at Williams's
Those who were engaged in the raid are
well known. There were no politics in the
matter, and outside of a very small circle (
at Blychewood, tie entire community of (
respectable, law-abiding people,, and all ,
good Democrats, disapprove of the outrage '
from first to last. The whole matter will 1
be in court for investigation. The "Winns- 1
boro Kuklux" luid nothing to do with tlie 1
matter, for there are no Kuklux in Winns- ;
boro, and the Democracy of Fairfield can- .

for the lawless acts of a few individuals. ,
The following statement made by Mr. \
Taylor will show how the whole difficulty
originated and that- it was prompted by
personal and not political considerations:
Bltthewood, S. C., November l. 1SS2.? \
I do hereby ai-Lan and declare that the dif- 1
fieulty between W. J. Johnson and myself ,
(into which .John Williams was afterwards ,
drawn) originated from his refusing to pay
three cents due on a letter of his and his subsequent
attempt to shoot me; that it is ,

and intended to do justice, may be 1
inaccurate, we cannot undertake to ]
say. But it is usual that such things
grow as they are talked about, and !
accounts must generally be received ,
with-some grains of allowance. It is 1

[ ?Take your county paper, and learn [
whatis going on at home. .
Messrs. Editors: I notice in yonr
paper some comments on manners, .by
Maj. T. W. Woodward, in his very
able letrer lo the "Washington Rational
liepitblicart,.teiiY\ed "plantation manners."
NowrMessrs. Editors, I would
like to inform the Major that tnc
writer is aware of there baiiig: more
than one stamp of manners in existence.
In the first place, I will say, if
town or sitv manners deiuautl the
slightest degree of politeness shown so
contemptible, unprincipled, traitorous
a character as J. Hcndrix McLane, I
wish it distinctly understood that I
don't take any of the aforesaid town
or city "spikcn" iii mine. Furthermore,
should the unpleasant duty of
quieting the nerves and et'mulcting h
courage of a lladical gubernatorial
candidate to speaking heat in "Winnsboro
ever devolve on. your humble
servant,-1 think I should stick to my j
red-shirt, as I've always thought, until
recently,-that there was some magnetic
charm about the color for MoLane's I
race, but it struck me in Winnsboro,
judgiag>*frotn McLane's, Dave Elkin's
and Foil Cat Durham's actions, that
they couldn't sec any Greenbacks in
red with good Democrats- inskie of-' it.
We are looking forward with pleasure
to the 7th of .November..
Too Late.?The- managers o:* ths
State and eoivuty elections in Kichland
county were appointed on Thursday.
About an hour after the appointments
had b-en made the commissioners
were furnished with- a list of twelve
names by J.-C.-C-. Feaster, county
chairman of the Greenback- party,,
with the request that they be^appainted
as Greenbaek-Labfrr mauagen of
election for Richland county." Ssven
if the mnnfttrprs recommended bv the
Greenback chairman are- said-, to be
rlycd-in-the-wool Radical netrroes.
None of the men recommended by the
&Vec>n backers were appointed because
their nair.es had not been received until
alter the board of commissioners?
Iiad finished their work and adjourned,
rhe Greenbackcrs were notified on
last Friday to submit their list of n-imesby
Tuesday of the present week- - They
got left," and have nobody to blame
bat thuraselves:?JVews and Courier.
To Promulgate the Truth.
Tlie way to pet a thing believed by the
public at large is to first have a truth to announce
without any doubt or suspicion as
to its being the truth, and then to keep on
fc?Uin?- 5iv si)p?ch and lien, bv tvne and fur
urc, in every way repeating "it'constantly.
Thus it was that when The Louisiana State
Lottery was incorported in 18<>S at New
Orleans, for charitable and educational
purposes, there was a doubt that the managers
would act as l'airiy as they announced,
nit the fact that Generals G. T. Beauregard,
of Louisiana, and .Tubal A. Early, of
Virginia, have the sole supervision ol the
lira wings, removes this suspicion, and it
lias been proven up to the 150th monthly
drawing on November 14th, that millions
liave been distributed to parties applying
to M. A. Dauphin, New Orleans, La., in
wins ranging as high as $100,000, and so on
ilown. Tickets cost ?5, but fifths are sold
it Si each, and the certain ty-c.f the event is
supplemented by the knowledge that some
lie will get ?75,000, or fractional parts
thereof. Who will it be?' (Adv.)
