son of Israel Carrigan, on last Friday night,
about five miles west of this place. The

influence of liquor, near sundown, having
M'ith them a bottle of liquor. It is stated
that on the way, a dispute arose between
them as to who should have the bottle after
the liquor was disposed of, and the result
was the killing of lieniield, by young Carri
gan, who has made his escape. Israel Car
rigan was afterwards arrested and lodged
in Jail as implicated in the murder, but upon
beiiij brought before Jml'ge .Mitchell at
Chambers for examination, he was released.

Death y Cni.onoi-oK.v, A voungman
of about eighteen years, Francis AYatts, the
son of a prominent phvsician of our county
died suddenly in lU'ainston, on Thursday
night, the -2 November, under the influ
ence of chlorofon.i. 1'oor Frank had been
subject nearly all his life to severe attacks
of nervous headache. Chloroform was the
only remedy that could be found to relieve
him; consequently he had become so accus
tomed to its use that lie would frequent 1 y
administer it to himself, without the advice
or ajd of a physician; and this sometimes
when alone. L'po;i the evening of the fatal
accident he exhibited, in the society of his
young friends even more than his usual
cheerfulness, until about nine o'clock, when
the dreadful headache came on, and he re
tired to bed. His brother, Air. John U.
AVatts, the Druggist, with whom he slept,
soon after left the room to watch beside the
dead body of a friend, lie was not gone
long. Ueturning sooner than he intended
he found Fia ik lying too much in front of
the bed. ishing him to make room, he
put his ban. I upon him, and called out,

motion, and no response. Becoming alarm

the sleeper. 77- boj mux th-ml f A hand

pressed closely to his nose, told the sad tale.

and 20,418 children were dependent upon j
the public for support. In the lihgnish pro
vinces there were 14,312 married women
and 20,fiG fatherless children who were ut
terly destitute. Thus, in only three Prus
sian provinces, there were, last October, .35,
753 women and 78,750 children in a condi
tion of misery and want, and it is believed
that destitution to the same extent prevails

South Carolina Election Experience.
The Hon. C. C. loven, who arrived re
cently in Washington from South Carolina,
claims that he has the strongest case of a
contested election ever brought before any
Congress. The Washington correspondent
of the New York Tribune says:
"He says that the worst election frauds
in New York are not to be compared with
those perpetrated in every part of South
Carolina. The State election law, which
was enacted last March, affords every facili
ty to dishonest managers and supervisors of
election. Hy its provisions, the Governor
is directed to appoint in each county a su
pervisor of elections, who, in turn, appoints
three managers in each election precinct.
After the polls are closed the managers are
allowed to have the custody of the ballot
boxes for three days, at the end of which
time they must make a return. In many
cases in South Carolina the managers of
election were candidates for the Legislature
or for county officers, and could, therefore,
during the three days that the ballots were
in their possession fix them to suit them
selves. 31 r. Howen says that he can prove
in many precincts the ballots cast by the
people were taken from the boxes by the
managers and others substituted for them
before the count was made, and that when
it was found that even then their opponents
would not be defeated, they scratched the
names of the latter from the ballots in other
districts and substituted those of their own
candidates. The only place in South Caro
lina where an honest election was held was
Charleston, and there it took place under
the provisions of the new Fnited States
election law. In 1808 .Mr. Howen's majority
in Charleston was about J,GO0. This year
it Mas more than 3,000, and yet, so great
were the frauds in the country, that he was
'counted out.' He estimates bis rightful
majority at about 10,000. He thinks the
republican majority in the State is about
8,001). The majority returned is about 30,
000. The people of South Carolina are very
indignant that they have no redress.
Or it Tkijuitouiai. Area. The area of
the organized territories of the United State's,
including Alaska, is greater than that of all
the States which have been admited into
the Union. There are nearly 1,000,000,000
acres of land in these territories, and not
over 50,000 white inhabitants. In natural
resources this territorial domain is richer
than the area included in the States. The
latter contain say 40,000,000 settlers, and
and even these would hardly be near enough
for neighborhood purposes. Uailroads will
open up the country and bring population.
What a magnificent country to carve into
homesteads for 40,000,000 landless people !

What is Home.
"Home, says UoIerston, in li:s sermons,
"is the one place in all this world where
hearts are sure of each other. It is the place
of eoniidence. It is the place where Ave tear
off that mask of guarded and suspicious
coldness which the world forces us to wear
in self-defence, and where we pour out the
! unreserved communications of lull and con
fiding hearts. It is the spot where expres
sions of tenderness n;sh out without any
j sensaiion of awkwardness, and without any
dread of ridicule. Let a man travel where
he will, home is the place to which "his
heart uiitrnnuled fondly turns." He is to
double all pleasure there, lie is to divide
all pain. A happy home is the single spot
of rest which a man has upon this earth for
the cultivation of h's noblest sensibilities."
