DEPARTEIV^IS li'.e, June 23d, near Shrove
port, Louis'ian.-. EUGENIA H., third daughter
of Dr. WM. M. BURT, ngod seventeen. "Blessed
are the pure of heart, for they shall see God."
Among the vanished things of earth,
My precious child, thou 'rt now ;
Far from the land that gave theo birth
They've made thy grave so low !
Like the dow-drop on the flower,
Or the blossom on the wavo,
Thou hast passed in youth's first power,
To thine early, early grave.
Far, far from home's dear haven,
By Bed B iver's turbid stream,
Thy soul to God was given
In thy womanhood's first dream.
GEXIE, darling, oh how sadly,
None may ever, ever know,
Our poor hearts yearn to pres3 thee,
As tbe scalding tear-drops flow ;
Wrung from these hearts, as soft,* and low,
Thro' mem'ry's silent cell,
Comes echoing down thy voice e'en now,
As when the sweet notes fell 1
Ere thou had'st left tho parent nest,
On new, and untried wing,
My bird, how soon that wing would rest
In youth's first blushing spring,
We recked not then, but God's decrees
Caa human means avert,
To raffle the cup, but ?cave the lees,
Turn from the band of Fute? 1
Ah, no ! tho' bitter it will be
To bow beneath His rod,
Wo know thou 'rt blessed now for aye,
Thc " pure of heart" seo God !
For Little Loudon.
INSCRIBED TO DIS HEART-S TRICKEN PARENTS,
" Lovely and pleasant in life, in death they
were not divided."
Gathered to the arms of the " Good Shepherd,"
who hath saioT" of such " is the heavenly fold, on
the 26th June, LOUDON A., only child of Capt.
and Mrs. A. P. BUTLER.
How fast from " love's circlo thc gems drop away,"
Tho brighest, the purest, how brief is their stay;
We count our sweet troasures, and call them our
E'-e tho words leavaour lips, God has summoned
We iook on tho lustre that gathors its ray
From the gom that's enclosed* in its frail form of |
Wc clasp the dear treasure of beautiful dust,
Forgetting 'twill crumble and fall,/or it mutt.
Not fate's stern decree, buttha soft chords of lore,
That draw earth-bound hearts to " Our Father"
Where shining 'mid :;ays of His life-giving light,
Their gem is ro-set where there cometh no night.
Grieve not then, thou heart-stricken ones, tho'
. thine all,
Thy one little lamb,-beard ?ti Shepherd soft call,
And is clasped to Hii breast who hath loved it
Nevermore in tho world's tortuous paths to beloit.
Raise up your fond eyes tho' thc blinding foars
For awhile thc bright light that ba? gathered
It? radianco will shine all along your life-stream,.
Till that life too has vanished away as a dream.
Mt'RnFR OK B. S. RHETT, SH.-We are
pained to learn that this gentleman.was foul
ly assassinated on yesterday afternoon, just
after entering his farm near the.'lace Course.
So far as we can learn it appears that Mr.
Rhett was riding along a causeway, ou the
si !e of which the murderer had concealed
himself, under cover of an undergrowth of
brush~and that after passing a distauce of
ten feet, he was shot from the rear with a
double-barrelled gun loaded with duck shot.
Mr. Rhett was struck in the left arm and
side, the shot apparently penetrating the lung.
He rode but a short distance before falling
from his horse, and died where he had fallen,
in about three quarters of an hour. He gave
no clue to the murderer. Drs. Mitchell and
Geddiugs, who were in the immediate vicini
ty, could discover no trace of him.
An inquest will be held by Coroner Whil
ing to-day.-Charleston Courier. 4th.

By his Excellency J AilES L. ORR, Governor and
Commander-in-Chief in and over thc State of
WHEREAS Mnjor-Genoral Sicklos, com
manding Department of tho Carolina?, en
tko 26th inst., by Special orders No. 19, has di
rected that white persons in military custody,
charged with felonies or misdemeanors on the
persons and property of colored persons, should
be turned over to the* civil authorities for trial,
and that like cases arising hereafter will be dis
posed of in the samo manner;
And whereas this' order-so gratifying to the
feelings and sentiments of the people of this
State-is based upon the logal opinion of Chief
Justice Dunkin, given upon the urgpnt request of
this Department,. and communicated to Gen.
Sickles: 1st. That persons of color, under the
2?th and 30th sections of the "Act to Organize
District Courts, are competent witnesses in tho
Court of Sessions in all cases of felony committed
by whites on the person or property of a person
of color. 2d. That they aro competent to make
affidavits and sue out warrants.against whites in
felonies and misdemeanors, and'also to testify be
fore Grand Juries in such cases, as woll as on
the trial before the Petit Jury.' And 3d. That
until the District Judges- aro commissioned, the
Court of General Sessions retains jurisdiction of
cases of misdemeanor committed by whites on
the person or property of colored persons. Chief
Justice Dunkin says: "The Court of General
Sessions had always cognizance of offences com
mitted by white persons against the person or
property of a person of color. In the case of
'State vs. Hill,' 2d Speer, 150, which was an in
dictment against a white person for assault and
battery on a free person of color, it was ]m only
so ruled, but recognized as well-settled law for
moro .than half a century. The District Courts
of December, 1SC5, not having been putin opera
tion, I suppose the general jurisdiction of the
Court of Sessions remain ; and I understand that
such bas been the ruling of the Circuit Judges in
rcferenco to cases of bastardy and vagrancy
which have como before them. The 30th section,
Act lSt>5, provides, 'That in-every ?ase, civil and
criminal, in which-a person of color is a party,
or which affects tho person or property of a per
son of color, persons of color shall bc competent
witnesses.' It is a remedial statute and mast be
construed in reference to its object My opinion
is, that porsons of color aro competent to testify
before Grand Juries and Magistrates in criminal
cases touching the porson or property Of persons
And whereas thc security of the liberty of the
citizen arising from hi;: right to be be tried by a
jury of his peers, can only be retained, in the
present anomalous condition of the country, by
the civil officers of the State executing the prin
ciples contained in tho opinion of the justly dis
tinguished Chief Justice, in good faith and with
m earnest desiro to give security and protection
to thc persons and property of the colored popu
And to tho end that this high privilege may be
retained by tho good people of this State, I,
JAMES L. ORR, Governor of the said State, do
proclaim and declare, that it is tho duty of every
civil Magistrate to give careful consideration to
avery complaint inado to him by a person of
eu lor against a white man for .my felony or mis
demeanor alleged to have been committed against |
the person or property of a person of color; and
if ho, upon such consideration, concludes that
lhere aro -reasonable grounds for such complaint,
?aid Magistrate sbi.ll take the affidavit of such
person ol' color, and issue his warrant against
:ho offender, requiring his arrest and recognizance
:o appear at tho next torm of the Court of Gcn
sral Sessions, just ns ho would do if the party
halting the complaint were a whito man; and he
.viii also recognize all witnesses hy whom the
romplnir.ant may desire to prove the charge, as
s now provided by - law, for securing tho atten
iance of State witnesses. All Sheriffs and Con
itables will promptly, faithfully and fearlessly
izeente all such warrants as may be placed in
Aud 1 cull upon all good citizens to aid in the
fair and faithful execution of tho laws of this
State, as expounded by the Chief Justice; and
. cry soon the earnest wish expressed by the com
nanding General in Orders No. 10, (published
icrewith for the information of tho people,) " that
t will not bc long before it may be truly said
hat no offenco against the peace, and . no injury
o the person or property, of even tho humblest
nhabitant," mi y bc committed with impunity in
he State of South Carolina," will be happily
Jiveu under my bund and the great seal of the
State, at the city of Columbia, the 30th
'L. s.] day of June, 1SG6, and in thc ninetieth
year of the independence of the United
States of America. ,

that it "will not bo long before it may be truly
