Death of Two Edgefield Ladies in
the West. *
With feelings of deepest sadness,* wo
record the la& deaths, in Caddo Parish,
La., of two much beloved Edgefield la
dies, the widow and daughter ol' Dr. Ar
thur Youngblood, who, himself, died
there some four years back. Mrs. Young
blood was a daughter of tho late Col.
? Jacob Smith, and was aged, at tho time
of frer death, about forty-seven. Mrs.
Sales, her daughter, was but twenty-one.
Mother and daughter died within a few
weeks of each other. Of Dr. Arthur
Youngblood's family there now remains "|
but one little boy.
How About a Town Council.
How about a Town Council for-tho en
suing year? The time draws near for
the annual election-tho second Mondam
in April. See notice .of the present
Council. And by-the-by of the present
Council, whatupou earth have they to
say why sentence of death should not bc
pronounced against them ? They put us
in mind of the old negro's toast in Ala
bama, to some gentleman just going out
of office: "You como- into oftis wid
mighty little opposition, and you gwine
out widout enny !"
But back to tho main question. Let
us be up and arranging a. ticket. It has
been suggested that we try quite young
men this time. The idea is perhaps a
gcodbne. "We have a number of young
men in our tora who are decidedly en
ergetic and enterprising in their own
business. And they doubtless would
manage the public .weal equally well.
We have now but a short time to act in.
"A Short Horse Soon Carried."
But how about a long horse ? In fact
three long horses? We allude to the
three grand advertisements of Mr. J. H.
Cheatham, Mr. W. H. Brimson, and
Markert & Clisby. Read them well, and
do not attempt to make sliort work of it.
Con the lists, carefully. And then you
will know whero to go, and how to do.
Harbmsers of Spring.
Wre don't mean len hirondelles-the
swallows, nor auything bf that poetic
sort. We simply mean two very practi
cal and useful gentlemen, Mr. Lebe
schultz and Mr. 0. P. Cheatham, who
have just returned from New York,
where they have been to replenish their
respective stocks. Both of them are
tasteful and judif'irtus. So look out for
beauties and bargains when they an
nounce themselves ready.
Arrest of Mr. James Brewer.
The Graniceville case, in which ancoro
girl shot thc infant child of Mr. James
Brewer, was afterwards shot herself, and
the subsequent shooting of Mr. Albert
Turner, is still fresh in thc mind of the
On yesterday, to thc great surprise of
our community, Mr. Brewer was brought
to Edgefield to be lodged in jail, having
been arrested in Granitevitlc thc day be
fore, upon evidence pointing to him as
the person who shct Turnor. A strange
and improbable tale truly !
Under the new law, which allows a
prisoneu to be heard for bail bofore two
Trial Justices, Mr. Brewer bad a hearing
last night, Tuesday, 26th, before Trial Jus
tices Ramsay and Eichelberger. Messrs.
Youmans <v Sheppard and Maj. W. T.
Gary appeared for tho prisoner. This
hearing resulted in thc release of Mr.
Brewer upon bail. Mr. B. has returned
to his home. This evidence against Mr.
Brewer and his arrest sire ascribed, bj"

malice, ora malignant scheme. Truly
the -wanton shooting of au infant ly a

We allude to thc rigor of tiie weather.

The Great Eveut cf thc Year 1872

To this great opening, very many of

Of course slie does, naturally ; that is,
if she is a well-constituted and well

wish lo dre's well herself, but she.wishes
to dress ber children well, ber servants
well, and to store her closets with beauti

Favorable Decision o?' the Supreme

. [SPECIAL TELEGRAM" TO THE XEXVS.] .
WASHINGTOX, Monday, March 25.
Th? decision of the Supreme Court on
the motion of Messrs. Johnson and Stan
berry for writs of habeas cuijias and cer
tiorari, in tiie ease of T. Jefferson Greer,
one of tho convicted South Carolina Kn
Klux, was delivered to-day.
The Court decided to grant the motion,
and ordered "the writs to issue, making
them returnable on.tho 8th of April, and
setting thc ease for argument on thc 12th
of that month.
The decision of thc. Court' was some
thing ol' a surprise to tho counsel for the
Government, who confidently expected
a denial of tho motion.
It is stated that every ell'ort will bc
made, on the part of thc government, to
defeat the presentation of tho question
upon its merits when it comes up for ar
gument. There is great dread of thc re
sult of an inquiry, before thc Supremo
Court, into the constitutionality of the
Enforcement or Ku-Klux law, and every
opportunity will bo seized of evading
that issue.* .There is, also, a marked dis
position in official circles to avoid any
examination of tho proceedings of thc
Circuit Court in tho Ku-Klux cases. An
interestingdiscussion is anticipated when
the next move shall be made.

hotels, theatres, &c, became a law. A
negro and wife, tn test tho law, took a

der of Mr. lleyward, of Beaufort, and
who were sentenced to imprisonment in
the penitentiary, made their escape from
their colored guard at Summerville on
tho night of tho 20th instant. Of course.
We had tho pleasure of meeting in Ai

knew him years ago in thc good old town
of Fredcricksburg, Va., and were raised
with him ; ?md often, with kncelcss

have played-marbles with him. An ac
quaintanceship of more than twenty-live

resenting, as he does, this great Southern

A. MELANCHOLY BREAK-DOWN.-There
are lively break-downs that make an au
dience laugh, and there aro sad and sor
rowful break-downs that make the kind
hearted grieve. To the latter class be
longs tho enervation of body and mind
which is usually called "general debil
ity," or "nervous weakness," and which,
when neglected, too often terminates in
atrophy and death. A wholesome medi
cated stimulant is the ono thing needed
in cases of this description, and science
and experience unitoin pointing to Plan
tation Bitters as tho true specific. The
fact that it combines tho properties of.an
invigorant with thoso of a regulator and
alterative, in exactly the proportions ne
cessary to produce a radical cha tige in thc
tone of thc system, and thc action of thc
digestive ana secretive organs, is an un
answerable argument in its favor as a
