THE WETKLY HERALD.
NEWBERRY, S. 0.
- WEDNESDAY XOEWING, JULY 19, 1865.
To the Ladies.
It is Pefreshing in these times of drouth, heat
ant money-scarcity, to meet with good fribnds
particuarly among the ladies. May angels and
ministers cf grace ever defend and cherish them !
We are largely indebted to our lady readers,
naiy of whom bive promptly responded to our
call, and with such charming grace and kindness
of tone, that we cannot r'efrain from this expres
sion of admiration. Mrs. J. R. W.t of Doaalds
ville, and Mrs. C. G. C., of Due West, will please
accept tbanks as being the first, also for their
kind wishe. With the ladies on our side, we
rest-not from our labors.-but ccutent; ho-ping
that a better day will dawn upon this unhappy
world, and that the Herald will grow into larger
and fairer proport:ons, and in the estimation of
Our Provisional Governor.
Sooner perhaps than was expecied, President
Johnson has responded to the call of South Caro
e " ina, and given her a Provisional Governor, iu
the Hon. B. F. Perry, of Greenville. No better
efioice could have been made. He has good,
practical sense, and a clear, active mind. - We
hope that he will speedily restoie us to our for
*mer condition, bring order out of chaes, and
- -peace, quiet, industry and prosperity to our
troubled and disquieted State. Mr.- Perry was
born in. Pickens District, on the 20th November,
1805. He graduated It the Wr in 1S27, located
at Greenville, and has ever since'lived there.' He
was three times an unsuccessful candidate for
Congress. In 1834 he was nominated by the
Union party, and was defeated by the Hon. W.R.
Davis, by a small majoi ity, and again, by Gen.
Waddy Thom,spon. In 1848 he was again a can
didate, advocating the claims of Gen. Cass, as a
democrat; his opponent Colonel J. L. Orr, the
election of Gen. Taylor. From his entrance upon
manhood he has served in either branch of the
General Assembly, and has been-prominently cone
neeted with nearly every public movement in the
State during the p.st thirty years.- The G. & C.
R R. B., is largely indebted to his exertioni in the
legislature, for its construction, and his life his
been devoted to the-devejopment of the State in
- all internal improvements.
A Greenville correspondent writes to us as fol
lows : I am truly glad to inforthx the readers of
the Herald that on my visit to Greenville Dis
trict I learned, that everything was pretty golet
there. Abo.ut the only- disturbance I hxeard of
* has been caustd by some men who, pz.asing
* themselves off' as Yankees, went' to the house of
an old citizen, demnaeded his money, and on his
* - denying that he had,any specie. nnazo- to
'sompel liiii), y- iTugan-is ii~an hip him
most shamefully with a haicko-ry. These' men
.*ent to the hrouses of two other citizens to-phm-'
der. The.,effort to. bring the accused to justice
* has caused a good deal of excitement in the up
per part of the district. It is hoped by the citi
zens of Greenville, that the people ab?oad will
* inot sippose from rumrs that there is anything
of-civil war existin; within her limitrany. further
than may' relate to the above -named cilse. I
could hear nothing of any murdering, &c., the
people, seem anious- there as elsewhere Ito have
peace and quiet. Crops look gencrally well.
* ExzcTmoN oP THE Asssiss.--We hav# ad
* ices, saya. the Phanis, of. the execution, at
Washington, on the 7trh in'stant, of Mrs. Mary E.
Sarrat, Lewis Thornton, (othxerwise P'ayne,).Da
iid E. Harold and George A- Abzerodt, conidem
. Ded by a military court, fQr the murder of Abra
ham L'ncoln. They are all described as dying
penitent. Mrs. Surratt made a confession ; she
died firmly and quickly, withou't any struggle.
Payne died a horrible .death, the knot having
agpped from behind his ear to the baok of his
neck, so that the suffocation wrs a,slow process,
*and the neck remained unbroken. Harold suf
fered also, and iL is. said -his neck was unbroken.
Abzerodt 'died easily. The execution seems to
have been a very bungling and cruel perform
Arnold, Dr. Mudd and McLaoghlin are to be

Captain T. C. Lewis, Harbor Master of the

be carried with great regularity, the routes are
opening to nearly alt the divergent.points, and,.?
with very little delay the Phoncxix can riow be
made to reach every district in the State. Our1
country friends, accordingly, will do well to se
'cure themselves, by- prompt subscriptions, the
benefits and blessings of the only daily paper in
OwR GoEos.-Gov. Perry arrived hers on
Wrsdnesday last, e. route for Washington, where
he has gone, it is presumed, to receivo instruc
tions as regards his oice.
Maj. J. H. Williams, delegate from Newberry,
and non. Armistead Burt, of Abbeville, also left
at the same time.
Tix WzArsra.-We gladly report a change
in the weather. Fine rains have falfen, and a
grateful change hhs taken place g the atmos
phere, and' the consequence i., that breathing
freer, we are in a pleasanter frame of mind and
body. The crops so long suffering will now re
vive, and it is yet hoped will yield r bundantly.
A daring robbery of Mr. J. C. Martins stors
was committed last Wednesday night. Several
hundred Jounds -of bacon, bolts of bomespun;
calico, etc., were stolen. No clue I as yet been
had of he parties.
Tas individual who upset.White's ink'on-Mon

it, had better look out when he enters his shop
again. We know.Zed well, he's from the 'land

A party who has patiently read the entire

chell is' treated very much in the style of the
more important rebs. He subsists on govern
ment army' rations, is closely guarded, and is
not allowed other rending mnatter than the
Bible and afly prayer book that he desjres.
He wiles away the weary hours of .bis pi son
life by smnoking. He brought a puipe with
him and is allowed tobatec. Nio conversation
is- permitted with him nor does he court any..
Thus far hd has.shown himself raher taciturn
than otherwise. Ck-m Clay smokes:with phi
loSophiC indifference. He occasionilly ad
dcesses a pleasant remark to his guards: As
a prisoner he has given very little trouble.
From the beginning he. has su.bsisted on the
army ration. . Hie eats but little,. smokes a
great deal, and has evidently niade up his
mind that neither tretting nor grumbliing will
help his case, and the 'best course to be pur
sued is to take things easi.ly and quietly. Mr.
Davis hss ici1ly recovered his health. He has
not.fet been' returned to his first diet, the
army ration.: His food is rescribed by B~r.j
