On Friday afternoon last, Richard Har
rison, colored, living on the premises of
Mr. Geo. Lanier, at Mt.. Vernon, in the
upper section of this County, whilst cut
ting rail timber, made a glancing blow
.with his axe, the blade of the axe strik
ing his foot near the ankle joint, and
coming near severing his foot from his
leg; from which blow he bled to death
before medical attention could reach him.
On Saturday night last a party of col
ored people were ont hunting in tho vi

down a tree in which it was thought a

name we have not been able lo ascertain
-who was'killed instantly.
A Fatal Affray in Granlteville.
We are informed that a little white boy
named Willie Howard, about 10 years
old, killed a little colored boy of about
the same age, in Graniteville, on Mon
day last, by outting the throat of the said
colored boy with his pocket knife, from
which wound he died in the course of an
On Sunday night, ihe 3rd inst, Wil
son Curry stabbed Gilbert Glover-both
colored, and one or both living on the
premises of Dr. J. A. Devore-the wounds
being so serious as to cause the appre

Glover was stabbed in the breast and in
the back. Curry delivered himself up
to Sheriff Wall on Monday, and is now
in jail. *s

Changed to an Evening Party.
On account of the very rainy forenoon,
and the promise of iurther rain, the
young gentlemen, managers of the Pic

to an evening party-Hop and Supper
in the Masonic Hall. Thin evening
(Wednesday-) of course, at "J o'clock.
On the eve of going to press, they beg
us to make this announcement-request

The distinguishing features of Sale-day
were the Railroad Meeting and a mag
nificent rain. And these came simulta
neously. Many country gentlemen, in
attendance upon thc Meeting, craned
their necks out of the Court House win
dows, in a manner both perilous and
amusing, to see if they were "getting
any." Did you ever note farmers watch
ing for rain-heavenly.manna?
Big rains again on Tuesday, and still
again on Wednesday. Even as we write,
it is pouring. And this is the day too of
the grand pic-nic gotten up by our brave

readiness, and everything in most liberal
style. Well, should the rain mar the
joy and success of the day, be it known
to the public-and particularly to the la

their part well, generously, gallantly.

A company has been formed, we un- j

The talk is now considerably of tur

to a young farmer, in his first season,
who was bragging of Iiis cotton pros

The Edgcfield and Pine House Rail
Two weeks back, we announced that
Mr. Ashmore, the experienced surveyor
of the Greenwood & Augusta Road, was
about to begin a survey of a route be
tween our town and the Pine House.
This survey, Mr. Ashmore and his corps
have now completed. And at present
they-Mr. Ashmore and Dr. R. T.
Mims-are preparing to make a Report.
The route is very nearly an air line, .and
the engineers pronounce it highly ad
vantageous and available for a Railroad.
And now the question is : What kind
of Road shall we build? Is it necessary
to build a first-class narrow gauge to an
swer our purposes? And can wo raise
the money (not less than ?60,000) to build
this kind of Road. Or would it not be
wiser under the circumstances, as well
as more practicable, to build a wooden
Road at a cost of ?25,000, which will do
our work equally as well asj.a first-class
Several of our correspondents have
written latel}*, intelligently and forcibly
in favor of the wooden Road ; and this
week we have an encouraging article oh
the same subject from no less high and
trustworthy a source than President
Magrath bf the S. C. R. R.
We are very much in favor of the
wooden Road, chiefly because we are not
able to build an iron Hoad- within our
selves, and have no right to expect out
side help-and no great probability of
And why no outside help? Simply
because the Road will be too short.
Capitalists will certainly not invest in so
short a-line, even were we able to rhise
a sufficient amount to build a first-class
Road for half the distance, and then give
a mortgage on the entire Road to com
pleto it. 'The probable income of the
Road would not justify capitalists in
making the venture.
From the undoubted and well-proved
success of wooden Railroads elsewhere,
we feel warranted in sa3ring that such a
Road, properly graded, and built of good
sbund timber, would:answer our pur
poses most 'satisfactorily-would trans
port as much freight as we shall proba
bly require for years to come ; and at
the same rates as an iron Road-possibly
And as to the oft repeated objection
that the wooden rails (4x5 scantling)
would last only one year-even granting
this for argument's sake-could they not .
bo replaced annually atacost not exceed
ing ?2,000-less by ?4,000 than would be
required per annum to simply pay 10
>er cent, on a ?60.000 iron Road?
Ari J further. Would it not be rath er
poor policy to tie up ?60,000 (as compar
atively dead capital) in an iron Road,
when, with a $25,000 wooden Road, we
can obtain exactly the same results ; that
is, transport all the freight and the travel
that our town and its section may de
mand ? !
Where the necessity for a four or six ,
horse, iron bub and axle wagon, when ?
one or two horse, wooden hub and axle
vehicle will do our work just as well
at one-fourth tho cost? As to the style :
and grandeur of tile thing, that is all
nonsense. Thc shabbiest sort of gentility ,
is tina which is above its business and '
above its means. j
When the Report shall be read and
considered, then steps will be immedi
ately taken to raise tho necessary funds.
And we beg our people to reinem
ber and to realize that the existence ol .
Edgeheld is now fii the deadly breach ol
uncertainty. With this Railroad she ;
swims! Without it she sinks.' '?}
And let every citizen of this town
and surrounding vicinity-rich or poor,
white or colored-feel that with himself
individually rests the building of this
Road, and enter his name upon the sub- i
scription list, when presented, for every ,
dollar possible for him to pay or work .
out, without regard to the amount sub- ?
scribed by, or the action bf, his neighbor j
in the premises. If we all thus act, our
individual efforts will be crowned with
success, and the Road will be promptly
