off 011 1st of September, and surpassed !

would again call the people of our ,
county to be up and doing in this I
matter. Let us have a show of Fair- j
field's fine stock.
?The gasoline lamps which have ]
been on trial by the Council have been (
removed. They gave an excelicnt 1
ligfct and in every way met the ap- ?
? . 1
proval of the Council, but the price
was rather large and they felt it would ;
be spending most too much when the ;
old lamps could be used. The com- ;
pany asked $7.50 apiece, for the lamps. ;
?A preliminary examination was 1
given to the colored regulators on
Wednesday in Trial Justice Neil's

?Mr. G. C. Bacot, of the firm of
Messrs. R. J. McCarley & Co., has just
returned from a business (rip to the
North, where he has made most satisfactory
arrangements for large shipments

have extended their business, and Mr.

their business at this point.
?Tlie public school for school dis

14th, under the management of Messrs.
J. (J. Cork and S. D. Dunn as principals,
and a full corps of efficient teachers.
There is propect of a large
attendance and with these talented
instructors there is no reason why this
should not be made one of the first
schools in the State. "We hope that
the Mount Zion Society will do their
best to aid in this work.
?The proprietors of the the popular
restaurant Old Fort McAllister, true
to their word, put the first oysters of
the season on the market on Tuesday.
It was thought by some that this was
on effort to force the season, as the
weather was rather warm, nevertheless,
there were a goodly number on
hand who were willing to take the
chances, and they have no reason to
regret. The dining room of the establishment
has been newlv furnished
with neat furniture, raid the polite
proprietors attend to the wants of their
guests with unswerving fidelity. The
thanks of this office are due to them for
a special invitation to partake of the
succulent bivalve on this occasion.
Besides oysters, all the delicacies of
the season will be kept on hard, and
served in the best style to the guests.
Personal.?Airs. J. E. Gilbert, of J
(jaltney City, is on a visit to leiauvcs j
and friends in town.
Mr. Mil'ett has returned to town
after an absence of several months in
Xew York city.
Dltv ok Tkiai. Justices.?The trial
justices of the county will do well to I
remember that under the law they arc j
required to send up their papers ten
days before Court. It is but little
mo than that time until the meeting I
of Court and we arc informed that j
very few papers have been sent in.
They will do well to keep this in mind j
and send them in at an early day.
Anothki: Boardkr.? Sheriff MeCarley
received another boarder on
Monday night in the person ot Belton j
Tobias, ilc is charged witn unrgiary
and larceny. lie has intimated that
some other paities were with him
when he broke in Mr. Blair's store
situated 011 the line of theSpartanburge j
& Union Railroad, and the constable I
who brought him down expects to j
have the ot^ier parties down in :i few !
days. As (he time for Court up-!
preaches criminals increase.
A Fok.mek Citizen of Faiufield j
IIoxoiied.?The many friends of Mr. j
W. II. Lylcs, will be pleased to learn
of his nomination to fill the seat in the
Legislature made vacant by the resignation
of Gen. Youmans. Mr. Lylcs j
was formerly a citizen of Fairfield, j
where he has a host of faiends who j
arc always glad to hear of his success, i
lie now ranks as one of the leading I
members of the capital bar and will i
doubtless fill the position to which
lie aspires with honor to himself and
a D\?t\ifnr.y Deed.?As the down
freight train which arrives at this place
about half-past three a. in., was passing
a point about a mile above Blackstock,
four negro men were standing
near the road one of whom fired into
the conductor's cab. One of the train
hands, sitting in the side door,narrow-1
ly cscaped the bullet, as^it lodged in !
the side of the door. No efforts should j
be spared to bring these guilty parties
to justice. The fact of being out at
that time of night shows that they were
up to no good. It is to be hoped that
they will be captured, and that justice
meted out to them which this da=tardlv
deed so well deserves.
Deaths.?It is with feelings of the j
deepest regret that we announce the
death of Mrs. Mary E. Roddy, of this
county, which occurred on Tuesday
last. She had been in failing health ;
for some time with that dread disease :
iwisnmntiou. but her friends did not j
think the end so near. She was a;
daughter of the late John Simonton, '
and from her early childhood had been j
a member of New Hope church. She I
was kind and gentle and her whole life !
exemplified the true woman in its;
broadest sense. She leaves a son and j
two daughters, besides a host of friends, I
to mourn her loss. To these be-j
reavedfriends we cxlcnd our heartfelt j
sympathy in this their hour of afflic- j

regular monthly meeting of this club
was called to order by the President
at 12 M., oh Monday. Xo quorum
being- present, the club adjourned to
meet 011 the 1st Monday in October.
This failure of a quorum to be present,
at an important meeting: of their club,
is on evidence of that deplorable lack
Df interest and enterprise among- the
farmers of Fairfield. Every one admits
the fact that concentration of
thought and action is needed among
the farmers, yet when a movement,
such as this, which must inevitably
result in good to all is set on foot, the
farmers, the men most interested,
allow the movement to come to naught,
[t is time that the farmers awaken
from their sleep and profiting by the
examples set by more enterprising
brethren make some effort to better

Colored Regulators. ?.On last
Fridry night about the hour of midnight,
the house of Satn Bricc, in the
Jackson Creek neighborhood, was visited
by an armed mob to wreak vengeance
upon him for one cause or
another. It is said that they called Sam
to the door, but instead of opening to
thorn, he went to a crack to parley
with the mob. No satisfaction being
given, the mob proceeded to break
down the door and fired upon the
inmates. Sam was shot in both legs.
One story says that some guano was
stolen, which excited the righteous indignation
of the colored brethren, who
it seems have determined to take the
morals of that communitv in their
own charge. The other story alleges
that Sam's two daughters were not
examples in any way to the community,
the colored mob preceeded
to impound moral ideas into them
through the agency of lead. Sam
says he recognized four of them
undisguised. A hearing has been
given and three men have been committed.
A further hearing will be had today
when further developments arc expected.

the holy bonds of matrimony. Promptly
at the appointed hour, 11A o'clock,
the bride and groom appeared and
were married by the Rev. Jno. T.
Chalmers in a beautiful and well
chosen ceremony. A large number of
the friends of the bride and groom
were present who congratulated them
with the heartiest good-will and
wishes for future happiness. The
presents were many and varied, all
being beautiful anu valuable indeed.
Refreshments came and a* quickly disappeared,
when nil mingled in animated
conversation and all went merry to
the end. Every one enjoyed the occasion
to the utmost. But every joy lias
its sorrow, and Winnsboro will sorely
miss this beautiful and lovable bride.
What is onr loss is Mr. Me Alpine's gain,
who is to be congratulated in gaining
his worthy bride. Thev left on the
north-bound train for their future
home in York, followed by the best
wishes of a host of friends. May happiness
attend them through the voyage
of life, and may Providence shower
upon them its richest blessings.
Dull Timks.?The r?oro is in need
of something new to stir it up. Merchants,
lawyers and mechanics are
gradually sinking inlo a hopeless state
of inertia. If is better to wear out
than to rust out, but it seems that we
have determinded to adopt the former
means of exist from this mundane
sphore. A newspaper is a chronicle
of the events which occur in a community,
but here the newspaper man is
forced to draw upon his imagination
for his facts and his memory for his
wit, and we alas have but a scant
store from winch to draw. We arc
willfntr to make oath that not even a
clog fight lias occurred within the corporate
limits during the hist three
weeks, to disturb the overwhelming
tranquility which has now settled
upon our town. We heard a minister
not long since refer to the hum of busy
life which could be heard upon our
streets, and we wondered if this was
not intended as a little pcace of ministerial
irony, for \vc listened for the
hum but failed to hear it. Other towns
build opera houses, school houses,
factories, etc., their merchants get rich
and break, and then begin over again
break and get richer, butoursjust hold
to the even tenor of their wav and
never fail or do anything else that other
WUIl l'u^uiuiuu iuui uuuuia uv. v.viiTw
qncntly our lawyers liavo no big law
suits to light, or big estates to settle
up, the newspaper has 110 startling
failures to announce. In view of
these facts we conclude that Winnsboro
is a peculiar town and .so remarkably
quiet that a newspaper
man's lot is not a happy one by any
A REPORTED OUTRAGE.
A White Man and Ilis Wife Alleged to Hav?
Been Whipped by "Regulators".
The Columbia Daily Record of
Wednesday last contains the foliowi
The Record learns from Mr. T. A.
Strickland, a resident of the neighborhood
where the outrages have been
committed, that Monday night of last
week a party of seven disguised men
visited the house of Mr. Henry Cook,
in the lower part of Fairfield countv,
ni..it j *.u^ 11 ^
near x>iymewuuu, uulwcuh mc jli p. m.
and 2 a. rn., when thcv burst open the
door with an axe, dragged Mr. Cook
irom his bed, beat him severely with n
whip of some kind, struck Mrs. Cook
over the head with a club, and then
inarched off, leaving their unfortunate
victims writhing in pain.
It is stated that these outlaws call
themselves regulators, and have undertaken
to manage things in that section
to suit themselves.
No cause has been assigned for the
brutal outrage on Mr. Cuok and his
wife. Mr. Cook, who is a survivor of
the Twelfth Regiment, S. C. V., is said
to be a peaceable, law-abiding citizen
?in fact the most inoffensive resident
of the neighborhood.
Mr. Strickland further informed the
Record that the people in the neighborhood
are very much alarmed, in consequence
of this outrage and the threats
which have been sent to others. Last
Thursday he picked up a card bearing
the following threat:
On the reverse side of the card,
which has scalloped corners, was the
picture of a rose twig, with blooms in
red and the stein and leaves in black
pencil. This may prove to be a cine
to the perpetrators of the crime.
Mrs. Cook, it is believed, can identify
several of the'assailants of herself
and her husband, but she has been so
terrified by these so-called regulators
that she is afraid to disclose her knowledge
These outrages should be inquired
into by the State and county authorities,
and if found to be true, the perpetrators
should be hunted down and
punished to the full extent of the law.
How far the information given to
the Record may be correct?how far
Mr. Strickland himself may have been
misinformed?we cannot undertake to
say. Certain it is that he makes very
grave charges, and, if they be correct,
no good citizen will withhold his
hearty condemnation of the conduct of
the so-called "Regulators".

NOTES FROM LYLES'S FORD. !
i Jlessrs. Editors: As 110 one gives (
| you the news of late from this section
! of our county, perhaps a few items
j from an octogenarian may not be amiss ]
j for your readers. i
First, I am pleased to say that in our (J
: immediate vicinity we have not suf- ]
! fercd fur want of rain to the extent of *
j other section in our county. Yet the (
I ell'ccts of the late drought has been 1
j almost universal. We were visited by \
] light rain 011 yesterday which, no ]
j doubt, will facilitate the growth of late |
! planted corn, potatoes, peas and gar- '
j lien vegetables, and give us-an oppor- *
| tunity of sewing turnip seed, but too .
j late for the cotton crop.
i I notice tho agricultural reports, so
! far, arc high as to the cotton crop mis
! year. P is, no doubt, exaggerated.
i The late drought has curtailed the
| yield immensely in nearly all the cotj
ton States. I read a letter yesterday
| from Texas, stating that three-fourths
i of the <rolcon was open, and not more
I than half a vield -would be realized in
i Brazos couuty and vicinity this year,
i I take a Texas paper, which coroli)- '
1 crates nearly the same account in genj
eral in that State. From all that*we
I now see and hear, the present cotton
crop will not exceed that of 18S2 but
I little, if any. .
The prospect for a corn crop, so far,
j is propitious. Our State should no
J longer buy corn or flour; neither
should we be indebted to the West for
j much bacon or hay. We can produce
: all these here. No State has more
facilities for self-reliance or sustenance
than ours. I have traveled over many
of our Statos and have never found
one in which so many natural advantages,
comforts and facilities exist as in
our old Palmetto State. Stay here,
improve your soil and be content to
bury your bones with your worthy
ancestors, who sought a home in the
happy South from religious and political
persecutions m olden time. With
industry and economy we can yet be a
happy and prosperous people.
We have not as yet had much sickness.

THE STYLES i
YOUNG MEN WANT
Are those handsome Four-Button Cutaways
in white cord, in all colors; Sack A
Suits, Suits of Cheviot, Cassimcres, Worsted,
Seersucker in fancy and plain patterns.
The custom-like appearance and elegant
style of KIN ARB'S TAILOR-MADE
CLOTHING is so well and widely known
that for me to state it is far superior? ,
especially in quality and fit?to any offered L
for sale elsewhere m the city, is quite admissable,
for it is a confirmed trutn. The
class of merchandise >vhich I have for sale
is not kept by small dealers in small cities ei
and towns; therefore, in soliciting mail
orders I do not conflict with the numerous G
country merchants. My establishment
being the most complete emporinm for the
sale of Men's and Boys' Fine Clothing,
there is 110 clothing house in the State that |
is better prepared to meet the wants of the I
public than this Fashionable Clothing Emporium;
and persons residing at a distance 01
who may wish to purchase Clothing 01 Furnishing
Goods, and Gents' Fine Shoes in
Gaiters, Low-quarters, Slippers and Dancing
Pumps, and Gents' Neckwear, Hats, C(
Satchels and Fine Trunks at honest prices,
