The Canadian Railroad Accident.
BELLEVILLE, June 22.-The unfortu
nate train contained many ministers of the
English Church rn route home from the
Toronto synod. About eleven miles be
low Belleville station the engine jumped
the-track, carrying death and fearful tor
ture to scores of passengers. The forward
car and baggage car, which remained on
the'track, telescoped into the smoking car
and svond-class passenger car, leaving
them, on the top of the engine exposed tc
. the escaping steam from the boiler. Here
the poor creatures were hopelessly penned
for some time, breathing vapors of death
and suffering all the agony of immersion
into a boiling cauldron of super-heated
wafer. An eye-witness says that imme
diately after the accident he went to the
second-class car. ? It and the smoking car
were telescoped, and .on the locomotive,
the steam from which issujng from the
cars was so dense that he could see noth
ing. One after another of the scalded vic
tims were crowding out of the opening.
Crow-bars were immediately put into re
quisition by the passengers from the first
class cars, all of whom escaped injury, and
openings were made. Many were found
entangled, and were extricated with the
utmost di?ficulty, timbers having to be
broken. Five persons were found dead
and were carried to the roadside, where
the wounded lay for nearly .three hours
in the most fearful agony. The sight was
one to baffle description.. The terrible
cries of the sufferers, rent the ears o? look
ers-on, who made every possible effort tc
grant their requests for water. Two first
class cars and a Pullman car were compar
atively uninjured, and th#passengers were
transshipped and went east this forenoon.
Sixty-five men and women were fearfully
scalded and otherwise injured, six of whom
died on the spot. Four more have died
and others are dying every hour. Not
more than one-third of the" injured will
live. The wounded and dying are lying
stretched on mattrasses on the floor of the
freight shed so much disfigured as to be

In the United States District Ku Klux

and a mistrial as to Py?ant and Smith
the jun* standing nine for acquittal and
three'for convicci?n. There were three

In the case of the Youngs and H?rkins,
a verdict of guilty was returned, and Neil
Harkins, R. G. Young and John D. Young
were sentenced to ten years confinement
in the Albany Penitentiary and $5,000
fine. Ringold Young was" sentenced to
seve : years and $2.000 fine. The Adver
tisei gives the following affecting incident
connected with the trial :
There was- an affecting scene in the
T.'nited States Court when the defendants
in the case of the United States vs. Young
cr al., were called up for sentence. The
verdict had been rendered hardly fifteen
minutos when the Court inquired if the de
fendants had anything to say why son tenet
should not be awarded against them, 'flu
old man Young, in a calm and. manly
manner, free from braggadocio, protested
li s innocence of tho charg but as he re
ferred to his wife and four daughters de
pendent upon him, now 03 years of ?ge,
iis voice was broken, and there was not
in the court room a manly heart but what
W33 wrung with sorrow as thc picture
arose before them of this aged man in a
far off penitentiary, and his now widowed

' . friendless, driven from their little home,
which the $5,000 ?ino wiii cause to be
sold, as well as tho little scanty pittance
which was all, this old man was enabled,
after a life of 'toil, to save from the wreck
of the war.
UNJUST PCNK-:?.?I3;XT.-Tho two freed
men, Meadows and Johnson, are still in
jail at this place, notwithstanding an or
der of the United States Court that thvy
should be admitted to bail. Their bail ft
and has been ready ever since before th?-?r
arrival here-?rom thc Charleston jail, yet
they are still in ?prison. These prisoners

Now, a3 lo the sejret of this unjust con
finement we think we know it. The two
negroes io question had the or?dit of uni
formly voting the Democratic ticket, thus
exercising their new rights as free citizens.
As for their connection with Ku Klux, it
is a base slander to charge that there was
ever such an organization in the Count v.
They should be set at liberty. It is "a
disgrace to the authorities having control
of the matter to keep the said prisoners
Lnger in .?jonfinement.
?mee the above was put in type, a let
ter has been handed to us, from which we
make the following extract. The letter is
written from Newberry, and is from un
doubted authority, yet for reasons uflne
C'ssary to be made known, we withheld
the author's name. This letter fixes the
blame, in part, at least, for thc detention
of the prisoners in question .nearer home
than we had anticipated. The public will
read and judge for themselves whethei
such cruelty should be tolerated without
the severest reprehension and punishment.
When thc orders of a United Statis Judge
and a United States Commissioner are set
aside or ignored by a little tom-tit of a
jailor, it? would seem that our condition is
deplorable in the extreme. The following
is. the extract:
"TheCommissioner (Runkle) teils me
that he sent an order Saturday, a week
ago, to have the prisoners brought down
by Leahy, who was then at Lam ens; that
Leahy presented the order to the jailor,
but he would not give up the prisoners."
SHACKING RAPE.-A horrid crime was
commited in Pulaski County* Georgia,
last ThrnVday morning, on the person ol
Mrs. Charlton Lovett, by a negro man
about twentv'-?ne J^5 ?ld, formerly
owned by Mr. Joe Philips, resining ten
miles below Hawki^aville. On Thursday
morning, vhis villain irent tb the house of
Mr. lovett, and finding -Mrs. L. there
alone, her husband being on a distant part
of the plantation, produced a huge knife,
which ne had just sharpened ic* fhe pur
post, and seizing Mrs. L. with great vio
lence, swore he would cut her throat il
she made the least noise or resistance.
Having accomplished his purpose, he fled,
but the alarm Deing given, ne was pur
sued by some thirty men during the day,
and captured and lodged in Pulaski Coun

toe affair throughout the County-the
victim being of a highly esteemed and in-1

Men Who arc in Prison.
Among the political prisoners in the
Albany Penitententiary, sentenced under
the infamous Ku Klux law, is a man by
tho name of Moore, and this i5 his histo
ry, as he gave it in brief, from his sick
bed, So the editor of the Utica Bee :
" Before, the war I was a well-to-do
planter in South Carolina. I owned many
slaves, which constituted my wealth. Tie
?vents of the war reduced me nearly to
poverty. At its close I gathered together
the fragments of my ruined estate, hired
\ lew of my former slaves and commenced
life anew. All went w?ll with me until a
month or six weeks ago, when I was sus
pected of, being a Ku Klux, arrested by
.a United States Marshal, given a hasty
.?rial, found guilty, sentenced, and two
weeks ago was brought from Washington
to this prison. My term is ten years."
The editor of the Bee adds : " The man
vowed upon his honor, and as he prayed
that it might be in his death bed, that he
was as innocent of the crime charged
against him as I was myself. He knew
nothing whatever of the "Ku Klux. I ask
ed him if- he had a family. The mention
of familv seemed to paralyze him with
?rief. He sobbed. bitterly, and between
the tears I heard him moan, 'Oh! my
ooor little bov-my poor wife.' I hasten
ed away, but, under the pretense of filling
his kid with wat ?r ; In ahalf hour I return
ed. He was still lying on his narrow
bunk, and, clasping a" Bible in his hands,
seemed deeply interested in one of the
Psalms of David."
There mav be, and no doubt are, here
and there in the South outlaws, as there
are in the North and thc West, who de
serve the prison ; but every form, feature
and act done une er the authority of the
.ui'amous Ku Klux act deserves the scorn
and condenation of every true freeman of
the land.-Baltimore Sun.
Sacrifice of City Bonds.
The sale, or rather the sacrifice, of the
bonds o'f the city of Columbia, S. C.. on
Wednesday lastl if nothing else, exhibits
bow utterly reckless of the financial inter
ests of the"city the Radical ring controll
ing municipal affairs have become. The
purchase of the Mayor, whose private for
vate fortune is limited, seems to point out
that functionary as th*" ?atspawof a ring
of gree ly Rameal plunderers, with whom
to wreck" the credit of the State and its
municipal corporations, to fill their indi
vidual pockets, has been and continues to
be the chief object of all legislation which
a corruption fund .controls against all the
better interests of the people at large. Of
$100,000 bonds offered, Major JohnuAl
exander took $90,000, and Clark Waring,
Esq., $lO,000--the prices paid being 60,
65* and 66. The auctioneer stated that
the" bids of the Mayor were private bids.
The Union says of this forced sale of' city
securities, that the bonds are well worth
90 cents, if worth anything, and further

city propertv thus to be sacrificed. Th?
city will realize ?.65..000 and a little ovei
for" which it will h?ve eventually to pay
$100,000, besides the interest at the rate
of seven per cent, per year till the bonds
mature. There is $3?",000 dead loss tc
the city to begin with ; by which loss the
city is made to pay a premium on the
amount realized, which is enormous, ano
interest on the amount realized at nearl\
twelve per cent, besides. Is this ? busi
ness like and honest transaction ? It is
wrong from beginning to end. At fbi:

It is a singular and pleasing fact that

Bring It By Edgefield.
' From the annexed extract from the
Constitutionalist it will ho seen that it is
ia contemplation to shorten tile Charlotte,
Columbia & Augusta Railroad some ten
miles by changing tho road bed at pome
point North of Pine House and running
thence direct to Augusta. Tf the Directors
really intend to make this change, re
gardless of the pecuniary wrong and in
convenience they would impose upon
the people who have settled around and
built stores and dwellings at Pine House
Depot, we think it incumbent upon tho
citizens of our town to take steps forth
with to induce the Directors to run the
new road as near this place as possible.
Indeed, we think the Road could be
brought righ* through the town without
prejudice to the interest of the Company ;
yea, on the contrary, decidedly to the
advantage of'the Company. For by
running the Road by this town would
add greatly to the transportation and
freight'lists of the Road, inasmuch as
hundreds of farmers North and West of
this, instead of hauling their cotton to,
and supplies from-Augusta, as they now
do, would ship by rail from this placo.
And we Edgefield people should and
doubtless would subscribe liberally to
wards paying the expenses that would
be incurred in -effecting the proposed
change in the route of the road. Let all
.concerned arouse to tho importance of
the contemplated'move, and let us with
out delay consult the directory of the
road, and see what can be done. The
Constitutionalist says :
We have been informed that the man
agement of the Charlotte, Columbia and
Augusta Railroad has under advisement
the prospect of shortenine the road ten
miles. Tnis project looks to the building'
of a line as nearly direct as possible from
the neighborhood of the Pine House to
Augusta, the road to cross the Savannah
River at the upper portion of the city.
This, of course, will necessitate the con
struction of a.new bridge, and in case it
is definitely decided to carry out the
project, an effort, which will probably
be successful, will be made to sell the
bridge now used to the South Carolina
Railroad Company. The building of the
new line to the point mentioned will not
only shorten the route ten miles, but
result in greatly lessening the expenses
of the road. The annual expenditure
required for keeping in operation each
mile of railway is said to b? about $3,000.
Besides this, every seven or eight years
new iron has to be laid at a cost of about
$8,000 per mile. By shortening the line
ten miles, therefore, $30,000 per annum
.will be saved iu running expenses, and
'about 880,000 at intervals of seven or
eight years for relaying of track. The
present line makes a detour from this
place to Pine House, while the route
proposed will be almost direct.

Mn. EDITOR:-If you have not already
been overwhelmed with notices of the
chaste and elegant little entertainment
which took 'place at the Ridge-" on the
night of the 13th, the following remarks
may not be unwelcome.
It was. conducted by the la?ies for the
benefit or" l'ie Ridge Spring Baptist
Church. Music, Tableaux and refresh
ments were beautifully and wisely blend
ed. The instrumental solos were exceed
ingly well executed, and the variety of
the music would have satisfied the most
fastidious. The chorus song, "When you
and I were young, Maggie," was par
ticularly admired ; the two Bass Solos
by Mr. James A. M., were exquisitely
rendered, and were indeed choice mor
sels. "The Old Sexton" (that universal
favorite) was one, and Mr. M. did jt full
justice. The temperance song by the
gentlemen waagi "happy hit," and was
heavily applauded by all of tho blue
teo-totallors of the Ridge.
The ladies were fortunate in securing
the assistance of Mr. Wm. M., whose
musical abilities render him an acquisi
tion on all such occasions.
During an intermission of several
minutes, the audience was regaled with
ice*-cream and cake, dealt out lavishly.
The Tableaux were all beautiful, and the
dressing in every one very appropriate ;
the parting scene between Dolly Varden
and Joe Willet, and the May Queen,
deserve more than a passing notice.
A hot supper concluded tho festivities
of the evening, at which the gentlemen
seemed to be immensely at home.
The audience did credit to the sur
rounding country ; the ladies heightened
the beauty of tho scene by appearing in
evening costume, and were as dressy
and tasteful as possiblo, whilst the gen
tlemen were dressed in the latest Paris
Let us hope that this will not bethe
last entertainment of tho kind we shall
haye. The ladies should feel encouraged
by their recent success, and the next
time undertake something in the dra
matic line instead of tableaux.
Such gatherings tend to heighten and
refine the tone of a community, and are

SALK OF THE LAURENS ROAD.-This
monument of the State's downward course
was given av. ay, yesterday, at public auc
tion, fior the pitiable'srim of $42,500. The
iron on the road is said to be alone worth
double thc amount; and-though thc State
is endorser on the bonds of the road to
the amount of some $150,000, yet there
was no effort made to protect her inter
ests, and wc have here ?100,000 more
added to the already incalculable public
debt. J. L. Ncagle, Comptroller-General,
who has already made his hundreds of
thousands within four years, on a salary
of less than $4,000 per annum, is said to
be the happy purchaser, though the bid
was made ostensibly by another.-Colum

A DESTRUCTIVE HAIL STORM.-Mr. H.
Craig, writing from Chesterfield Court
House on the 19th, says: "A most de
structive hail storm passed a few miles
North of this place on Saturday evening,
loth instant, accompanied with a tomado.,
prostrating almost everything in its track.
The crops of corn and .cotton on mar
ianus are completely ruined, houses' and
fences blown down, and large numbers of
poultry killed. Many of the hail stones
were as largo as tea cups/and generally as
large as guinea eggs, borne fine fields of
cotton, just beginning to bloom, are so
completely wrecked that not a green kai' j
can oe found on them. Severaleye-wit
nesses say that the bark was knocked off J
of large oak and pine trees by the ?ail."

THE attention ol' School Trustees is
hereby directed to See. 49 and GI of
"An Act to amend an Act entitled an
Act to establish and maintain a System
of Free Common Schools for the State ol
I South Carolina," approved March Cth,
The above-mentioned Sections of the
t said Act provides that " An annual meet
ing of each School District shall be held
on the last Saturday of June, of each
year, at 12 o'clock AL. uotico of tho time
und place being given by thc Clerk of
the Board of Trustees, by posting writ
ten or printed notices in threo public
placas of the District at least ten duy bo
l'orc tho meeting." It is further provided
in thc same Sections that "the inhabi
tants qualified to vote at a School meet
ing lawfully assembled," shall havo
power "to appoint a Chairman to preside
omr said meeting," "to adjourn from
time to time,* "to authorize the Board
of Trustees to .build School houses, or
erect the same," ?c.
Tho attention of thc Trustees is par
ticularly directed to ?he fourth daueo
ol' Section ;">!, wherein the inhabitants of
the School District so'assembled, shall
have power "lo raise by tax, in addition
to the amount apportioned by the State
| to their uso, 6uoh further sum's of money
as they may doom nropcrfor the support
of Public Schpols."
The Boards of School Trustees, through
theil1 several Clerks, will give due notice
of an annu:ri meeting to he held in tho
School District under their supervision,
on Saturday, the 29m day of June, 1872,
and to havo the panie adjourned from
time to. time'until they will bo able to
have a fair representation of tho citizens
of their respective School Districts, and
that the}- make a Report of the final pro
ceedings to this Office, ~<on or before tho
31st July next.
.1 deem it of groat importance to tho
success of.our Free Common School
System, that these meetings bo hold in
every School District, and that each Dis
trict raise a liberal ?ocal School Tax for
thc support of its Schools, for tho reasons :
1st, The Stato appropriation made for
Free Common School purposes, for the
current fiscal year, is insufficient to sup
pl}' the educational wants of the people.
2d-, The amount of Poll Tax collected,
is, of itself, insignificant.
I 3d, Tho Local School Tax is paid Into
thc County Treasury, and is directly sub
ject to tho order of the Board of School
This Special Tax, whi h will be assess
ed at tho District School meetings, will
I be collected with tho next general Tax.
If in any case the Clerks of the Bdards
of Trustees of any School District shall
not have sufficient time within tho pub
lication of this notice and the 29th June
inst., to give due notice for tho annual
School meeting, they will extend the
time of said annual meeting so that tho
inhabitants of said School Districts shall
have ton days notice.
