Mr? Lebeschultz's Masculine Raiment.

Murder on the Ridge.
On Tuesday last, on the plantation of ]
Mr. Wm. Watson, living near Ride Spring
Depot, Elbert Raiford and a man by the
name of Brooks, both colored, got into a
quarrel which resulted in a fight-fence
rails and rocks being the implements of |
war. Brooks pounded Raiford severely
with a rail and afterwards with a rock, from
which blows and contusions Raiford died
the next mornhig. Brooks, who was
clearly the aggressor and fomenter of the |
strife, made his escape, and has not }*et J
been arrested. Raiford was au excellent
blacksmith, and had, we understand,
the full confidence and patronage of
the people of the community in which
Let us Have a Fire Engine.
A Fire Engine, so indispensable to the
safety of life and property in our com
munity, is not now among us, but we
are glad to say that there is a good pros
pect of our having one soon. The gen
tlemen of our town-mostly young men,
strong and brave-who have enrolled
their names as members of a fire com
pany, held a meeting in tho Court House
on Monday night last, and besides otner
important preliminary business, appoint
ed Committees to solicit subscriptions
towards the end in view. Of course an
Engine, and the other accompaniments,
will cost a very considerable sum. But
then only comparatively a small moiety
of this will be collected by subscription
if-as we understand it will-the Town
Council should doits duty in this matter.
Of the twelve or fifteen hundred dollars
paid annually to the Council by the cor
poration, an important sum might well
be donated to this AV eighty and crying
necessity. ' Indeed, let.us have little or
no road-working this yeer rather than
that 'the present fire-protection spirit
should be chilled. A fire anywhere and
under any circumstances ip terrible
enough, but, as we have often beforo ob
served, should a fire break out and gain
headway on oar public sqaare, where
would our calarrity and desDlation end?
A year thereafter it might be written of
Edgefield, ?? Ubi Troja fuit nunc cst

now a cornfield!

Even Scott is Alarmed.
Ex-Oov. R. Kt Scott remarked the
other day in the presence of a prominent
Republican of this County, with appa
rently considerable alarm, "lil be U-d
if Frank Moses and his ' Ring' hav'nt
stole moro money during tho past five
months of his Gubernatorial administra
tion, than I and my administration did
during my four years reign as Governor;
and by the Eterna!, I can prove it.4' And
perhaps Gov. Scott is right-and as he
he Avas "some'' on the steal himself, we
dare say Frank Moses, a profligate
spendthrift through he bo, is to-day
worth a cool half million or more. Scott
at tho last count only claimed to have a
quarter million of the South Carolina
ill-gotten pelf. Frank, please "rise and

Milledgo W. Turner and William Park

0T Tho New Orleans Picayune, of the
23d instant, speaking, we suppose, Avith
especial reference to operations in the
Western cotton- Stages, says : " It is yet
too early to form any estimate of the
planting, but tho general impression is
that a larger area than last year has been
put in. The l3te frosts have rendered re
planting necessary to a considerable ex
tent in some sections."
Adview from the seacoast section
of this State report tho disastrous result
to the crops from the killing frost of Fri
day morning; much of the cotton will
have to be replanted, and the injury to
tho early vegetables is irreparable. No
frost so late has occurred fn this region
for fifty years.
p?T In North Carolina, Tennessee, and
the uj>per portions of Georgia and South
Carolina great damage was done to the
corn and cotton crops, and the frnit crop

frost of toe 2?h. 1

On Sunday morning last, Father Folchi,
a-young Italiaapriest o!" Charleston, who
now does missionary service in Edge

large congregation assembled to witness
the beautiful and solemn-rite of adult

made* lately upon the roo^ and other
parts of this handsome Church, andan
elegant new carpet has been laid upon
the floor of the chancel. On the 4th >**f

Folchi will again be in Edgefield, when
a solemn Requiem Mass for the soul of
the late Dr. Bermingham, who may be
called thefather of the Church, will be
?The Sabre Club held' its monthly drill
on Saturday last-a good turn-out and a
lively day. No races however. In the
afternoon, amid much fun and merri
ment, a indi was raffled-quite ?.fine
looking bull. Young Atkins, one of the
leading Sabreurs, won him ; and strange
to say, he turned out to be not a bull but
a steer, which is only another proof that
" all that gritters ' is not gold." In the
latter part of May or first of June we are
to have another grand Tournament and
Ball. Something to look forward to !

from youth to hoary age, is now the

M. A. Markeri, one of our most esteemed
and popular citizens, designs making the

few days for New York, whence he wiU
sail to Liverpool or Havre. It is Mr.
Markert's iutention to be absent some

so, but we, hope-and we know every

Friday night last was severely cold,
and Saturday morning disclosed a heavy
frost, thick ice, and gardens terribly
damaged. Irish potatoes universally
cut down ; beans, squashes, and cucum
bers killed outright ; corn blighted, and
everything yellowed and set back. Cot
ton a good deal injured, but not disas
trously. And so also of fruit. The de
mand for fresh garden seeds within the
last fonr days has been enormous.
A few days ago, we are told, Milos
Yeldell, the yellow man who is in jail
charged with stealing Mr. L. R. Tillman's
money, and who still swears vehement
ly that ho " found it," espied on the pub
lic square our late County Treasurer, and,
standing in close proximity, the present
County Treasurer. Hereupon Miles,
leaning against the iron bars that so ter
ribly wound his pure soul, sang out in
lastly tones that reverberated magnifi
cently around the square: "Here's the
place for you County Treasurers ! Here's
the place for you !" This was a sort of
vulgar rebuff to the Treasurers, and they
incontinenti"? had business in other quar
ters of the town. Miles "knows how it
is himself,"-and many who heard his
exclamation remarked that, for once, he
was not far from the truth.
Capt. Eichelberger, ex-County Treasu
rer, has returned homo from Columbia.
We understand that he has made a par
tial settlement with Treasurer Cardozo.
On Monday last, just as the dry weather
had begun to tell oa growing stuff, there
fell a gentle rain. Ou Tuesday we had
still more-falling beautifully. And as
we write, Wednesday forenoon, it is
cloudy and damp, with every prospect
of further showers. So the season may .
be called a fine one hereabouts.
The Case of Capt. Bart. N. Blocker.
Our compatriot, above named, for years
past a citizen of Burke Co., Ga-, had a
hearing before the U. S. Court in Savan
nah on tho21st April. It will be remem
bered he was arrested some six weeks
back upon a charge of Ku Kluxism.
However, we should not say "had a
hearing," inasmuch as the Grand Jury
found " No Bill." The' negro witnesses
failed to link their lies, and Capt. Blocker
returned quietly to his home Our friend
was mu'jh favored in this matter by able
legal advisers-eminent lawyers giving
him the benefit of their time and talents
without fee or reward. .
