Progress of the Court.
As we went to press last week, the case
of the State against Flint, for the killing
of Sharpton, was being argued before
Ju?ge Melton. In this case Messrs Yoo
mans cfc Sneppard appeared for the De
fendant, Mr. Barnwell, for the State ; and
all made earnest and able speeches. Flint
was acquitted. *
The nex t case tried, of any impor
tance, was that of the State vs. Brewer,
of Granite ville, charged with the killing
of the negro woman who shot his (Brew
er's) child. Messrs. Gary & Gary and
Youmans & Shep iv xl for the defence,
Mr. Barnwell rep.osenting the State.
The State, however failed to make out a
case, and the Solicitor gave the matter
np and the case was dismissed, Mr.
Brewer, for whom great sympathy was
felt, departed for his home on the same
On Friday afternoon the Court of Ses
sions was adjourned. And Judge Mel
ton dismissed the Juries-not retaining
them for civil business this week.
On Monday morning, the Court began
with Calender No. 2, putting aside Cal
der No. 1., which requires a jury. No
business being ready, however, an ad
journment was made . ^until Tuesday
morning. On Tuesday and Wednesday
certain civil business was dispatched
-not of interest to the general public.
On Tuesday we Vere pleased to see at
our bar .one of , the most; distinguished
members of tho legal profession, in South
Carolina-Mr. Thompson, of Abbeville.
Genl. Butler, of Columbia, and Major
Baxter, of Newberry, have also been
present for a short time during the ses
sion. Genl. Butler was to have returned
this week, but ie detained in Columbia
by the Democratic Convention, to which
he is a Delegate from Richland County.
A pleasant feature of Tuesday morn
ing's session was the appearance in Court
of our gifted and popular townsman,
Thomas P. Magrath, Esq. This sound,
able and experienced lawyer, though
much confined to his office now-a-days
by ill health, is as vigorous and trench
ant as in bis palmiest days. Many friends,
who had not seen him tor some time,
were delighted to greet him on this occa
And in this connection, we would re
fer to the bold, concise, truthful and con
scientious Report of the Grand Jury,
which we publish this week. We haye
seldom read a Report of this kind so cal
ciliated to open peoples' ey?s to many
public abuses, and to set on foot meas
ures for the correction of tho same. Our
citizens will no doubt mark well the
words of the Grand Jury in regard to
s the sale of lands for delinquent taxes.
On Friday tho County Commissioners,
through their attorneys, Messrs. Gary &
Gary, submitted a lengthy report of their
official actings and doings in answer to a
Rule of last Court* to show cause why
they should- not be indicted for neglect
of their official duties. The report was
very elaborate, Very plausible, and
in the main a much better showing than
we thought they could possibly bring

grand success. We really speak the ab

A Sort of Kidnapping Case.
On Tuesday last two little negro boys;
Joe and Ezekiel, aged respectively about
12 and 14 years, were brought to our,
town by an officer of the law, who had
taken them on writ of Habeas Corpus
from the possession of John Gillion,
Lemuel Gillion and Lark Rodgers, citi
zens, if we mistake not, of the Min?
Creek section. The mother, Kitty Jack
son, lives on the plantation of Mr. G. M.
Broadwater, and avers that the aforesaid
persons toc?k the children from the afore
said plantation without her consent. She
then wertt, and, getting hold of them,
brought them back home. Subsequent
ly, the Gillions and Rodgers again took
them away forcibly. And now the mother
has them on Habeas Corptut. We hear
the boys hired themselves without the
mother's consent. One of the boys looks
ragged and worse for wear. As we have
heard it, the tale makes Rodgers and the
Gilleons appear decidedly -lawless and
high-handed, and all good citizens will
discountenance and disapprove of their
Thc caso was heard on Tuesday evening
before Messrs. Ramsay and Harris, Trial
Josi ;es, and the children remanded to
uheir mother, as'they doubtless should
have been. r ,
Last week we commented in a mild
way on a pair of contemptible Radical
pimps who had been writing malicious
lalsehoodn to the Scott Ring organ in Co
lumbia, concerning thc Advertiser in
particular, and slanderously abusive of
the good people, in general, of Edgpfield.
And we here state for the edification of
these maliciously inclined scribblers, that
.whenever they attempt through their
dirty organ to misrepresent, and malign
the good people of Edgcfield-ns honora
ble and gallanta people as ever lived-we
shall, without regard of the consequences,
come to the defence of the latter. Our
motto is: We will stand up for Edg?field
and Edgcfield people forever, if right
but right or wrong, wc are of them, and
for them, and will silently suffer none to
defame them Therefore, if the Radicals,
like their master, Grant, cry ont "Let
us have Peace," we answer, Hands off
let us alone-and meddle not with tilings
that do not concern you.
And once maro, to close with. Radi :
cal pimps and underlings-or Radical
magnates either-may write their vile
slanders concerning Edgefield and her
people, but they may rest assured we
shall sparc no pains to unmask them,
and to smite them hip and thigh.
The Lowe Bridge. '
We have been requested by interested
citizens to eall tho attention oZ the County.
Commissioners to the almost impassable
condition bf the Lowe Bridge, on the
Liberty Hill road, and to suggest to tho
Commissioners the importance ofhav
ing said Bridge repaired without delay.
We hope Mr. Hailing, the Chairman of
the Board, wi ll take tli is matter in hand,
and have the repairs attended to, as this
Bridge is on a much-travel od thorough
fare, and it will be agreat convenience
to the people to have it putin passable
order. Weare informed that but little
money is needed to do the necessary
work, and if repaired soon may be tho

gentlemen-practical cotton planters
?will shortly take atrip of some seventeen
miles over on the "Dark Corner" sido
of the District, to witness an unusual
anomaly in the cotton plant thus early in
thc season, Which we are assured by Mr.
Press Blackwell, and other reliable gen
tlemen, is already bursting its bolls and
will soon be ready for the nimble fingers
of the cotton pickers. We hope tosend
a reporter with this bight-seeing and in
vestigating Committee, and will present
our readers with a full description of this
new species of cotton, which is now ex
citing considerable comment among cot

seed of this wonderful cotton have been
engaged at fabulous prices.

therefore, to ponder long and well over
the merits of the Gullet Cotton Gin.

. -A Great Storm*
CHICAGO. June 8.-Further reports con
cerning the great storm of Thursday night
in central Illinois,- show that an immense
amount of damage was done in Peoria,
Fulton, Knox and other counties in that
section of the State. The destruction of
the bridges on the country roads has bt en
almost universal. 'In the city of Peoria
fences and trees were blown down and
cellars were filled with water. Every rail
road leading out ot the city suffered more
or less, and no trains left there yesterday..
CHICAGO, June 8.-The Burlington and
Quincy Railroad had about four miles ol
its track andlhany bridges swept away.
The Toledo, Peoria and Wabash Road also
suffered severely, losing one bridge of 150
feet in length, and thc entire road bed ir.
a number of places. A large number of'
men have been set to work repairing dam
ages, and there will be but little interrup
tion to train?. In the town of Hilton the
damages are ?fearful, and the town is al
most entirely under water, and barn's,
stock, &c, have been swept miles away.
The most singular circumstance of the
storm is the running up-stream of the Il
linois river. The immense volume of wa
ter that poured into the stream has created
a backwater, and there is a strong current
running northward. The river last night
was still rising rapidly, and fears of seri
ous damage from thin nooroo woro enter
THE CAUSE OF THE ADVANCE IN COT
TON.-Thc Financial Chronicle, of May
31, attributes the advances last week to
the very small receipts at the United
States ports, together with the lmprove
I ment at Liverpool, which, in a limited
[ way. revived the demand for export, and
enabled the bulls to. get a twist on the
shorts. Although the advance is the re
sult of theiact that the shprts have been
cornered, the movement bas been helped
'forward by the steadiness of the legitimate
demand from American spinners and from
shippers leading to a rapid reduction in
stocks'. The Chronicle thinks the advance
'is not mainly due to speculation. \
The same paper makes' the visible sup
ply 2,'250,'?75, against 2,098,335,' showing
an increase of .the cotton in sight on May
31st 152,240 bales more than at the same
date lost year. The American cotton in
sight was 695,275 bales on May. 31st,
against 1,165,245 same date in 1871, show
ing a decrease of 460,970. The India cot
ton is so much larger than last year as to
make-the total suppiy larger.

The Germans of Nashville, Ten
nessee,, held an enthusiastic Greeley
meeting on the 25th' ult., and adopted
resolutions renouncing former alliances,
and assuming a neutral position until a
, party shall offer based upon the principle
I of honesty in government.
?ST J. Henry Burch, a colorod delegate
from Louisiana, now in Philadelphia,
who has boen Interviewed, says, " War
moth, who leads the Greeley interest
there, has been nominated for governor,
with Pinch back for lieutenant-governor,
which virtually places the State in the
possession of the Greeley party.
?sr- Tho Milwaukee (Wisconsin) News,
the leading Democratic paper of that
State, which at first pronounced against
the Liberal ticket, has changed its viewB,
and now advises the endorsement of
firceley xt Baltimore. The Chicago Times
says that Wisconsin will send a Greeley
delegation to the Baltimore convention.
?Sf The Democratic and Liberal Re?
publican conventions of Illinois both
meet at Springfield on June 20, and will
nominate a State ticket in concert. Sena
tors Trumbull and Schur?, Governor
Gratz Brown and Geo. H. Pendleton, of
Ohio, have been invited to speak, and a
great demonstration is expected.
?f*r- The Judge Advocate ol the Bueil
Court Martial was Don Piatt, and hr
declares tho testimony produced at the
trial was very damaging to General
tirant;, and this is? probably the reason
why tho record wan stolen from the War
J Department. . In the official report of
I thc battle of Inka, General Grant was
I accused of willful uiisrepresention, and,
t what is more to the purpose, the charge
is proved, according to General Rose
eranz. This report is also missing.
Tho famine in Persia, which now
seems to be drawing near its close has
boen productivo.of an amount of misery
almost unparalleled in modern times
'Captain Pierson, an Englishman, who
has recently travelled in that unhappy
country, describes tho last stage of the
famine as worse than thc first. On his
journey from Shiraz to Tehoran he found
the road strewn with half-eaten corpses;
cannibalism was very prevalent, and
s tar v at i OH had aroused the usually peacea
ble inhabitants to despair, and brigandage
and other crimes of violence were rife
all along the roads, In the capital alone,
ont of a population of 80,000, at least
20,000 had lallen victims to the famine
and ita attendant diseases.
