The Attempted Murder of Mrs. Barker.
The public generally have heard many
different rumors of this affair. The sum
of the whole is this "Riley Barker, a
man of life-long bad character, coward
ly, br mal, and without an idea of honor
or morality, knowing or:thinking that
his sister-in-law, the wife of John A.
-Barker, had money, determined to rob
her. He went to her house, some five
miles above Duntonsville, and demand
ed it of her. Mrs Thurmond, a sister
in-law of Mrs, Barker, with her at the
time, assured him sha had nona, and
that there was nono ?in the honsi); and
terrified at his brutality, rushed oat and
hid herself under the dwelling., After
breaking open Mrs. .B's trunks and
searching vainly for money, he pursued
her, she having fled from the house, and
attempted to shoot her. His gun mis
sing dre, he cast it aside and assaulted
her with a piece ot plank. At this time
?she was near the edge of the wood*
w hi ti mr she had attempted to escape.
A fierce blow upon ,the head laid her
senseless, and the brute thinking her
dead, turned and tied. In the meantime,
however, a negro man had come to the
rescue, and been attacked and put to
flight by Barker. Mrs. Barker lett alone,
crawled through the WOOOJS to a neigh
bor's house, a mile oit', reaching the
house at cJdnight. She was eight hours
in making the mile. Her husband was
absent in Columbia, at the Legislature.
. Owing to the energy of Mr. J. W.
.Thurmond, of Augusta, a brother of |
Mrs. Barker, who rushed post-haste to
the scene, Barker was arrested by Sheriff
Wall, on Saturday, at thc house of Mr.
John Terry, brought hither, and lodged
in jail. Mrs. Barker is recovering.
And in conclusion we do not hesitate
to say that this was a fitting occasion for
a little Lynch law. What is the life of ?
such a wretch but an unutterable curse
and reproach to his kind !
Homicide In Beech Island.
On Sunday night - last, Mr. Barney "M.
Lamar, an old arid well-known citizen of j
Beech Island, shot and instantly killed
a negro man named Wm. J. Heyward.
On the following day Mr. Lamar repaired
to Aiken and surrendered himself to
Sheriff Jordan of that County. There
being no jail as yet in Aikeu, Mr. La
mar was brought to this place to-day
(Wednesday) by Deputy Sherill' Jordan
and lodged in our jail.
The cause of this fatal affray we under
stand originfced from suspicious circum
stances tending to implicate Heyward
with the domestic relations of Mr. La
mar. Further particulars next week.
tg"T From Dr. W. D. Jennings we are
pleased to learn that Capt. E. A. Searles,
of the Dark Corner, who was taken quite
ill whilst on a recent visit to Augusta,
and is still in that city, is rapidly conva
lescing, and will soon be able to return
to his home and family.

A Lamentable Result cf Republican
Years and years agone, when honest
officers were in charge of our District
monetary affairs,-officers who were more
watchful of the public interests than of
their individual pecuniary, profits -a
handsome sum of money was judiciously
invested by the Commissioners of the
Poor for a valuable tract of land and the
erection of suitable buildings thereon ior
the better protection and comfort of the
destitute poor of our District;-and for
years and years this home for the poor
and infirm was watched over as a sacred
trust, whilst the inmates were abundant
ly supplied with everything requisite to
their comfort and gratification. But alas !
since a blight has fallen upon our land,
and in the grand upheaval which fol
lowed, Republicanism obtained the asT
cendency, and the veriest scum of that
upheaval-vile and despicable scamps
floated to the surface, and were put into
office by the Republican party, and have
held the reins of government and had the
disbursement of the public funds, our
j destitute and unfortunate paupers have
been robbed of their comforts and made
to feel the change of their custodians ;
for time and again have they been on the
eve of starvation, and compelled to sub
sist on bread and milk alone. And now,
as-will bo seen by reference toouradver
tisirg columns, this once "haven of rest,"
-our County Poor House-is about to
pass under the Sheriffs hammer in pay
ment of a long deferred and just debt
' due by. the County for services, rendered.
I Yes, our County Poor House is to be
sold by the Sheriff to the highest bidder,
because, forsooth, the Republican party
have sought ont, with only a few hon
orable exceptions, the veriest riff-raff
soulless scoundrels-and placed them in
office, and through whose imbecility f
theft and plunder, the enormous sums
extorted from the tax-payers, (under the
pretence of levying a fund to procure
supplies for the poor) have beert reckless
ly expended. Verily, Republicanism,
as appreciated and carried out in this
section of Grant's dominion, means sim
ply to steal and plunder-plunder the
rich and plunder the poor-yea, and to
rob the very pauper of his daily bread,
and cause him to be driven from his only
"Home" on earth, out upon the cold
charities of the world. Shame ! Shame !
.The present County Commissioners, it
is but .fair to state, are not at all respon
sible for the deplorable condition of our
; County finances. It is due to the rascals
who preceded them in office. And we
understand the present Commissioners
are making energetic efforts to save the
Xounty Poor House, and in due time will
try and obtain an injunction restraining
.he Sheriff from selling in the case ad
vertised. We hope they will succeed.
For the Advertiser.
Public Schools. .
Being a graduate of the District School
of Kew England, I was naturally pleased
to read in the late Message of the Gov
\ ernbr of South Carolina the following
M An excellent svstem of public schools,
modelled upon that of New England
the land of the school-house-has been
thoroughly organized in this State, and
the facilities for free education, as. de
signed by the Constitution, are now af
forded our people."
The more prominent features of the
New England system of Common Schools,
so far as the district is concerned, will be
presented by the following outline.
The citizens of a township, in annual
meeting assembled, divide tho territory
thereof into, say half a dozen, more or
less, School Districts, as will best accom
modate the inhabitants of the several
neighborhoods, and authorize certain
residents to call a meeting of the legal
voters residing within the limits of thc
district. Thus "set oft'," each district
becomes a body corporate, nuder a law
of the State, with tho necessary legisla
tive and executive powers for the man
agement of school affairs. At meetings
duly warned the electors appoint a treas
urer^ collector, and-a committee, and as
sess the amount of money necessary to
defray tho expenses of the schools of the
district, on the "grand list" of all the
inhabitants of the district. This money
is collected and disbursed bv officers of
their own election. In some cases, how
ever, these districts are entitled toa small
dividend from the State school fund, de
rived from the sale of certain lands re
served in each township by the original
"proprietor's grant," The school com
mittee are charged with the care of school
houses, the general management of the
school, tho hireing of teachers, Ac All
of which duties, as well as those of tho
other officials, are performed gratuitous
ly, with the understanding that those.re
sponsibilities shall - be assumed by, or
rather be devolve? Upon, tho different
members of the district in rotation.
Hence, so far as school interests are
concerned, each district is'an indepen
dent municipality;-a pure democracy.
The people meet in council, discuss the
important questions .which pertain to the
education of their own children, and
those of every family in thc district, and
adopt 8ueh measures a* shall secure
the most economical administration of
its educational affair?. If the school house
needs repairs, if a new one is required,
..many men of miuiy minds" express
their views with perfect freedom, and
such course as rho majority decide on
is adopted, and the whole wealth of the
district is assessed and collected to foot
the bills incurred.
Now, Messrs. Editors, the late procla
mation published in your columns, by
tho County Commissioner of Schools, in
which he appoints, or nominates, three"
School Commissioners in each township
or "school district" of the county, with
'out any action ' on thc part of the people
of these townships, excites my fears that,
if Governor Moses is correct in the state
ment I have quoted from his message,
those who did the 'j-moddling" referred
t> were rather unsuccessful in their at
tempt to copy tho New England system
of public schools.
Take the election of the School Com
mittee from the legal voters of the school
district of New England, and place their
appointment in the hands ?f some high
official, domiciled in the " Shire" or
" Court House" of the Countv, and what
would thoro be left of the New England
