old Landrum place," midway between this and
Aiken, wai arrested, brought to thjs place, and
lodged in Jail. At the samo lime and glace, wer?
arrested six negroes, who are nlso in our Jail.
Tho charges against FOSKET, SO far as we can
learn, are that he keeps around him a gang of
negroe?, whom he has armed, and whom he con
stantly drils. That he hos incited these negroes
to kill certain of hi? neighbors. That the hou.-cs
<.f certain of his neighbors have been violeutly
a faulted nt night, and that these neighbors are
in daily fear of their lives. Th.it he has offered
.i white mau of good character, who is willing to
iwear to the fact, $ jut) to kill a certain well
known citizen of this placo. And that ho is a
mischievous man, and Coiner ts strife and discord
generally in tho section in which he liver. Ibo
six negroes are of thc said gang. FOSKRT bas

President JOHNSTON and Chief Engineer Moo
certainly deserve the thanks of all progress!
minds throughout the country fur the unce
quotable energy and zeal manifested by them
bringing this important Road so nearly to perfi
eompletion. They havo had manifold and i
mouse difficulties to encounter ; and through a
and ?hove all. and in spite of all, they have t
umphautly demonstrated that they have no s
periors as " Railroad men." And of Col. Jon
STO.v, President of the Road, with whom wo ha
the honor to he personally acquainted, we c
say further, that he has no superior as a gentl
man of large and libetal views, of honor, of i
telligenc*, education, polish ?nd affability.
Ia addition to the drawbacks of w?r, dcm]
tion, ruin and poverty, it is well known that tl
Road has had a net of legal technicalities throv
around it Tho South Carolina Railroad fit
contended that, by reason of an old chart
granted that road, no other could cross its trat
at or near Columbia, and resorted to the usu
legal remedies in order to enforce itt franchi:
Thc next impediment was at Orangeville, who
the South Carolina Road insisted that certa
trottle work (already erected) of the Columb
and Augusta Road, was an enftingemcnt of i
proprietary rights. These two difficulties, aft
an obstinate and determined resistance, wcroovo
come ; and, supposing that no other obstac
would be thrown in the way, the grading i
the rood from Qraniteville to Augusta wi
commenced ; and indeed is now well nig
finishod. But at this juncture, with tl
road so nearly completed, and to the rcgn
of our community, nnd of all well-wishers of tl
Columbia and Augusta Road, another injunctic
has been applied for by the Sooth Carolina Boat
upon the ground that the said grading is withi
? one hundred feet of its track and consequent
an infringement of its charter. This case wt
elaborately argued ten days ago before Associai
Justiec Willard, in Charleston. Justice Wiliar
lus not yet pronounced his decision, which i
anxiously looked for; but in all probability th
decidion will be in favor of the South Carolin
Road ; not that tho latter road needs one hun
dred feot on either side of its track, or will noe
so much fur fifty years to come, but upon strict!
We hope, however, that the practical >en?e c
the day and the progress of tho age will tend t
reconcile the contestants in these malters, an
that the Public na well as the Corporations of th
State will soon realize the -inevitable fact that th
Columbia ? Augusta Railroad mutt an I will b
carried through to triumphant completion.
P. S. Since writing the above, the Char loe to:
papers have brought us Justico Willard's docision
It is as follows:

BUTLER AND THE LOUISVILLE COURIER.
The Courier Journal, of yesterday, published
a private lutter from Gen. Butler, iu which
he says : "That we are politically opposed, I
think must arise from the different light iu
which we see the same thing. The South
hts no firmer friend than I am, and have
ever been. It is a pat t of my country ; and
although I may misjudge ia the best way to
prevent the South lrom the consequences of
what I must regard as a great crime, and
still worse,'a blunder, yet I would do any
thing if I could bo convinced that it would
tend to tho prosperity, quiet and regeneration
of the South, as a part of my country. I
bear no hatred toward the South, or South
ern men as such, if 1 know my own heart;
but I am opposed only lo those who still war
upon the best interests of the country, as I
understand them ; and tbat opposition, from
the very necessities of my nature, will be a
stern and unyielding one. I hope to see you
aud assure you, iu person, that I can be as
ardent a friend in peace as I was a determin
ed and uureleuting foe in war." The Courier'
Journal says of thia : "Aj a partisan we
have untiringly fired the heaviest guna io
uur battery at Gen. Butler. When he soars
so high, and demonstrates that his will U
equal to bis capacity for good, our guns shall
ail be spiked, ur turned upon those who may
assail his acts in our behalf."

_T.be New York Tribune says it bas been
asked to publish a call for a national con
vention o' Union men, to meet in Washing
ton eily December 9tli, then and there to
consider what legislative or.ptber action is
needed to protect the lives, liberty of loyal
citizens in the late rebel States.\ The Tri
bune then adds :
We decline to print the call, because.it is
not responsibly signed, and because we test
no such convention is required. The better
part of those at the South who supp rted S?fe
m?ur and Blair iuour late struggle seem nofl|
des i rou- to unite in i Hurts to secure peaces
and prosperity to the South and to the whole!
country. We trust those effort?, heartily^
seconded by ibose of General Grant and his
suppoiters, will prevail. At all events, let
us wait and note carefully the effect produc
ed at the South by General Grant's election.
Congress will need no prompting to do what
is right. Let us not provoke further turbu

PARSON BROWNLOW ON THE COLORED MAN*
-,: This question of race you call up >o Ute
lo settle to your satisfaction. Do you ask .ne',
to make a pointer out of a poodle ? Do yoc;
ask me to make a peach out of a crab apple ?
Can you change a carrot into a melou ? Can:
you grow an oak from a pea.nut ? Will a
donkey product an Arabian horse? Will si
polecat produce a liou? Can you hatch eu.:
gles by setting a iroose ott buzzard eggsi'
Most certainly not ! You cannot undo what;
God has intended shall never bo undone. It
i*, therefore, simply impossible for you to
clnugc an African into an Anglo-Saxon. It
is a question of blood-of race, as I have re
marked ; and a questiou far above the capaci
ty of those who abuse these Southern States
on account of African slavery."-\V. G.

D. Dorrick, T. G. SMITH, of Edgofield, and Min
MARY A. LEAPHAKT, of Lexington District,
DKI'ARTKU this lifo, on Saturday night, the 14th
November 1S0S, at tho residence of D. P.. DURI
soK, Esq., SALLIE, youngest, daughter of the
Inti- .Toii.v uud EK.V.NCES A. HARRISON, of this
Sh? was a lady of unusual amiability and love
liness of character; generous,_unselfish, and of
great kindness of heart. The best years of her
life wero spent in ?loepless aud untiring devotion
to an aged and afflicted mother; and ail who call
to mind now this holy and pious devotion, can
but think and say : " She has gone to receive her
reward. Sho has departed to be with Christ."
Ono j car ago, this mother was laid in tho grove;
and now the devoted daughter is culled to join
her io Heaven. In God's eyes bor work upon
earth was finished, and He bas garnared her up
among the best and noblest of bis kingdom.
But not only as a noble and devoted daughter
did she shino in life ; sho was likewise an ovcr
affeciionate and ever-thoughtful sister, a truthful
and loving friend. Wo all feol that a good and
gentle woman, a model of a daughter, a loving
sister, a worthy neighbor, and a genuine Chris
tian, has left ns. Prom her early youth she hod
been a straight forward and unswerving member
of the Baptist Church. For her, death bad no
terror. She was willing to remain and still bless
her family, or ready to depart and be with Christ
She might truly have expressed the sentiment of
the apostle : " To abide in tho flesh is more need
ful for you ; but to depart and bo with Christ is
far bettor for me."
On Monday the 16th of Nov., we deposited her
in tho grave, attended by the lamentations of
brothers and sisters, the tears of friends, the
prayers of all, the ill-will of nono. Her life
'oaches us not to live for self alone. Her death
tells us there is a hereafter, where tho good are
rewarded ; and we quit her with the words tho
Divine mersonger addressed to Daniel : " But
thou, go unto;the end and aim: there rest, but
rise up to thy lot in due time. Amen."
Dinn, of Consumption, on the 16th October, at
the rosidenco of her father, Mrs. MARY NEAL,
aged 27 years, wife of Mr. J. M. NEAL, of New
hurry District, and daughter of Mr. MARK ETU
KU Kn U E.
This estimable lady hus been tukon from us in
the bloom of life, but not without leaving evi
dence of those noble qualities which adorn the
female life. As a wife she was devoted to her
husband; as a daughter, she confided in the
counsel of her parents, always paying due respect
to their judgment; as a Christian, she exhibited
humility, piety and ma , i the graoes which are
worthy examples of t' .rue christian.
She leaves a IIu.j> uu, Father, Mother, Broth
ers and Sisters, ar j many frionas to mourn their
loss. They mourn as those who have hopo, for
she died expressing a willingness to go at an jj
time and be with Christ. II. B.
