residence on Thursday last. Mr. Rabb
was afflictcd with Brisrht's disease of
the kidneys aud had been for some
weeks previous to his death confined
to his bed, during which time he suffered
much pain. The deceased was
about sixty years of age and left a
widow and a large family ol children
and grandchildren. Mr. Rabb was an
energetic, honest and skilful planter,
and in his death the State loses a useful
and active citizen, and his family
and relatives, an affectionate and trusted

with friends and kindred, all who
knew him will nnite to lament his

The New Rates.?The Charlotte,
Columbia, and Augusta Railroad, with
its branches, has gone back to first
principles and resumed the sale of
thousand mile tickets on the same conditions
and at the same prices as heretofore.
The passengers rates under
the new laws are 3$ cents a mile for
1 first class and 3 cents a mile for second
1 class tickets. The same road has also
submitted to the Commission the new
> rates on cotton and fertilizers, and they
have been approved and went into

No other classes of rates have been

change in the cotton rates agreed upon.
Fire in Columbia.?Columbia was

volumes of smoke pointed to the fire
on the most central and closely packed
block on Main street. The block contains
the Columbia Hotel and others i
of the finest buildings in the city. The
! fire originated in the rear of the
second-story building occupied by
Richbourg's jewelry establishment and
Mr. Hennies's photographic studio.
The fire was shortly extinguished,
after doing considerable damage to the
building, but little or no injury resulted
either to Mr. Richbourg's or Mr.
Hennies's ?tock. It was fortunate indeed
that the fire was gotten nnder
control just when it was, and Columbia
is to be congratulated on the escape.
Death.?Mrs. Malinda Keith, of
this place, died at the residence of her
; daughter, Mrs. Priscilla Eetchin, on 1
' last Monday evening1, the 21st inst.
Mrs. Keith was in the seventy-eighth
year of her age, and general feeble1
uess together with a probable paralysis
I of the heart was the cause of her
death. She was, on Monday morning,
op and about as usual, and at one
o'clock was taken suddenly ill, and
died in the afternoon of the same day.
^ Mrs. Keith had lived for many years
iu Winnsboro, and many friends and
relatives are left behind to mourn her
departure and keep fresh the memories
' of her exemplary life. The remains

: Scion Presbyterian church on Tuesday,

the Rev. D. E. Jordan, assisted by the
^ Rev. John T. Chalmers.

term of the Conrt of General Sessions,
t of arson and sentenced to life imprisonment
in the State penitentiary, was
? on Tuesday, the 22nd inst., pardoned
[ by Governor Thompson. He returned
) home on the up train on Tuesday. The
facts and circumstances of his trial are
fresh in the memories of all, and it
5 will be/emembered that the evidence
i upon which he was found guilty was
entirely circumstantial; and although
i none have questioned the integrity of
5 the jury, yet doubts of guilt were entert
tained by many theughtful and cou
scientious men who were present
1 throughout the entire trial. The exi

of their stock have been tracked to

experienced burglars and

burglars are all' colored and are
strangers in this section of the country.
The Observer of Thursday says of the
arrest and of the goods found :
The police "were busy all day yesterday
in hunting up goods that had been
stolen by these thieves, and succeeded
in finding quite a quantity. All of the
goods recovered arc in the hands of
Chief of Police McNinch, waiting
identity by the owners. Among the
Jot are several suits of ready-made
ciothing, ladies' and men's shoes,
cloaks, underwear, jewelry, three
watches, two bottles .of morphine and
various other articles. Mr. Baxter
Caldwell identified one of the watches
as the same that was stolen from his

The following is a complete list of
the articles recovered from the burglars:

TBE CRIME OF Alt SOX.
Messrs. Editors'. The crime of arson
is punishable capitally, unless the
criminal be recommended to the mercy
of the presiding judge, in which case
life imprisonment is the penalty. This
is statute law. The following is a
recent amendment: If the convict is
recommended to the mercy of the
Governor, four months' imprisonment
is sufficient to wipe away his sin,
though he has burned the humble
dwelling of a poor negro widow. I
would respectfully beg leave to offer
another amendment, viz: If the prisoner
be recommended to the mercy of
the President, he be set free and granted
a pension for life. Lex.

twelve of our best citizens and found
guilty of the burning of the dwellinghousj
