Several members of our bar and a
number of our citizens have gone to
Newberry to attend the Glover trial. This
case, it is thought, will bo caded this
morning, Wednesday--the 24th.
Among the attorneys gone to the Glover
trial, is Maj. Wm. T. Gary ; and wc aro
exceedingly sorry to announce that this
gentleman will not return to live among
us. He hrc- decided to remove to Au
gusta, where he will continue thc prac
tice of his profession. And to the people
of Augusta wc very honestly give our
congratulations upon the addition to
their societ3rof a gentleman of such high
culture and eminent professional attain
ment. All who know Maj. Gary admire
his high character, his varied intellectual
^acqmj^omepts, and tho careful training
with which lie has prepared himself for
the discharge of thc duties of his pro
fes?ion He carries to his new field a
reputation, in all respects, seldom en
joyed by one of his age, and we venture
to predict for him great success in that
wide field for professional effort upon
which he has entered. He carries with
him tho best possible wishes of the peo
ple among whom ho hus lived. In the
society of Augusta we could not have a
better representative. In tho Courts of
Augusta our Bar could not have a more
courteous or able brother. We wish him
the great success he deserves and will
achieve. And we hope that thc place
which has known and loved him so long,
will still know him over and anon.

Cunr.YTOX, March 14th, lf-75.
Mrssns. EDITORS: On yesterday i
was my sad fortune to make a post mor
tem exaniiuation of the body of Mrs
Eliza Floyd Foster, tho wife of Robt
Fosier, one of our neighbors.
The circumstances connected with th!
sad death, as elieited by a jury of in
quest, are as follows: On Friday last, tin
12th inst., Mr. Foster, with his two litth
sons, and his wife's father, Mr. Jame:
Floyd, left his house as usual, to attenc
to-the busiuess of tho farm. Just befor<
night, ono of his sons, about eight year!
of age, returned to the house arid fount
his mother lying on the iloor dead, sh<
having been burned almost to a cinder.
At first it was thought to be the resul
of accident, but after examination, t
severe wound was found on tho back o
the head which had produced a violen
laceration of the soft parts. lu additioi
to this, ty was evident, from the positioi
of the biily, accumulation of tte a^lie?
of the burnt clothing and other chanel
material, that tho body must have beer
in an insensible couditiou during thc
timo it was being consumed.
The judgment of thc jury was, thal
Mrs. Foster came to her death, directly
or indirectly, by this blow on tho head,
and that tho lire was thc work of thc
assassin, to finish and conceal this fear
Mrs. Foster was a quiet, good womau ;
and after inquiry, ? learn from the fami
ly that she had had no difficulty with
any one to account for this sad affair, awl
that they have not even a vague suspi
cion as to who is the guilty one.
Our community is much excited about
this sad death, and at a meeting of thc
citizens on yesterday, it was determined
to offer a reward of Ono Hundred Dol

For the Advertiser.
MESSES. EDITORS : Sincerely craving
yonr patience and forbearance, I again
ask a place in the Advertiser for a reply
to thelast communication of "A Widow."
There is strong internal and somo cir
cumstantial evidence that " A Widow,"
sustains only the relation of sponsor to
the two bantlings christened with her
name. Through her thin veil, I can,
methinks, distinctly discern the mark
ed, features of the real author of their
being. I therefore, take leave of "A
Widow" with my most respectful obe'
sance, and pay my regard to Mr. Ether
edge iii})ropria persona.
In his lirst article, Mr. Etherodge as
serted substantially that he had, since
the war, loaned tho Grauiteville Compa
ny about ten thousand dollars at seven
per cent, per annum interest ; and cited
thc fact as one of his g^od deeds which
had contributed " to tho relief of widows,
orphans and other poor laborers" in
Grauiteville. To this, at the suggestion
and by the authority of ProsidenUHick
man, I replied that, " Mr. Etherodge has
never loaned thc Granitevillo Company
one dollar; nor has the Company ever
asked a loan from him." Of course, the
denial is limited in all ita terms to the
time embraced in tho allegation, and
cannot bo forced to include the whole
financial history of the Company since
its organization. In his reply, Mr.
Ethcredgo repeats his allegation ; and,
bj- the same authority as before, I now
repeat my denial*
Mr. Etheredge affects to ridicule the
idea that there is any substantial differ
ence between a deposit on call and a
loan. " Practically" ho says " the differ
ence is about that between tweedledum
and tweedledee." Is lie so ignorant of
" the technicalities of banking phrases"
-to uso his own words-as his language
imples ? Surely not ; and I do him no
wrong and cas,t no imputation upon his
good name, when I say that, if one
should present himself before him in
the character of a borrower, ho would
soon teach such an one the wide differ
ence between a deposit and a loan. Lend
er and borrower arc the correlative terms
in thc one case; depositor and receiver,
in the other case. The lendor usually
dictates tho terms of a loan ; the bor
rower is generally forced to accent those
terms. Tho depositor, on thc contrary,
usually accepts" tho terms dictated by
the receiver. Loans are secured in this
age by good collaterals; deposits hare
for their security only the confidence of
depositors in the integrity and solvency of
receivers. Moreover, a large part of Mr.
Ethcredge's deposit account is the pro
ceeds of cotton sold by him to tho Grau
iteville Company. Did ho sell his cotton
that he might accommodate the Company
with " his money at a low rate of inter
est, where it could benefit in some de
gree tho needy-nothing more?" Credat
Judieus Appella, non ego.
Now, as to the amount of this alleged
loan, Mr. Etheredge has manifestly look
ed only at thc credit side of his account,
ignoring the debits altogether. It is true
that all the deposits, made at various
times since thc re-opening ofhis account,
with the compounded interest accruing,
do in fact aggregate the sum of $11,703.87
Arc we to conclude from this fact that
this stun is the true amount of his ac
count? If, on the contrary, we look
only at tho debit side of his account, and
add together th?: several sums of money
paid him at different times, it would*ap
pear that the Grauiteville Com pan j'has
loaned him ?6,723.40. Thc latter conclu
sion would be just as true and correct as
'tile former. Neither of the two conclu
sions would be correct. The true amount
of an account, at any specified time, is
the balance at debit or credit at that time;
..ni' I. for the whole period of itt existence,
thc.average balance. Taking this as the
indy correct view, I fearlessly assert with
TTC'Tnni^TTr^^^ Mr. Ejhercdge>J
deposit does not mu^k; exceed one third
of ten thousand dollars.
With regard to thc low rate of interest
allowed Mr Etheredge on his deposits,
I haye only this much to sa}-, that it is
much higher than the interest allowed
on snell accounts by any of tho Banks
in Augusta save only one, or by any of
tho brokers, so far as I am informed.
To conclude tho whole matter, Mr.
Etheredge is in gross error aa to tho
average amount-the only true one-of
his deposits. He is in error in calling
his call-cleposits a loan, and by necessa
ry implication, if not in direct termsi
presenting thc Grauiteville Company
before the public in the attitude of a bor
rower seeking his aid in running the
factory "on full time and at full pay."
This is tho gravamen of 1113' objections
to his two articles. If ho had put the
matter in ils true light ; if he had stated
that tho Grauiteville Company had re
ceived his deposits for his own accom
modation and convenienco and at his
repeated solicitations, after repeated
refusals, and allowed him a liberal in
terest therefor, then I would not have
penned a word in reply. Ho did the
Company great injustice in return for a
greet f:>--^?-unhitentionally I doubt not
-aAd -? havjffiifiv^attempted to set the
trdnsacliou^Hts true lignt-a - - ^
Mr. Etheredge has, without .a. doubt,
done many acts of great liberality and
kindness, of charity and, benevolence,
aad I would not willingly offend him. I
have carefully avoided inditing a single
word that would give him just cause o?
offense. But I must be permitted to
say, with all due respect, that his alleged
loan is not one of his deeds of charity.
