Within the past week we have had repeat
ed and heavy rains-the only really generous
rains we have had since the first of May.
They come almost too lat?-except for
turnips and potatoes. At present the
weather is cold and windy.
On Sunday next the Episcopal Church
will be closed. And probably the Moth

that the Rev. Mr. Round has lost another

We are requested and authorized by B
J. Bouknight.Esq., Secretary, to announce
that the Pomona Grange of.- Edgefield
County will meet in our town on the sec
ond Wednesday in October, at 10 A. Bi.
.This will be an interesting occasion, call
~ing into our midst many of the very best
meu and women of our County. The
delegates to the State Grange will be elec
ted at this meeting. ??oie State Grange
holds its annual convention in November.
In our issue of this week will be found
three interesting documents, all bearing
upon onear.djthe same subject ; viz., a Let
ter from Edgefield to the Columbia Union
Herald, the Report of the Committee
who have recently visited and examined
the jail, and the Card of Albert Jackson,
our colored jailor. The letter to the
Union-Herald is lively, and saves us the
trouble of telling the tale. In his card,
Albert says that at the time Snipes fled,
he was deviling the County Commission
ers vainly-and McDevitt also we guess
to get a few dollars with which to buy
something for the prisoners to cat. The
old tale-a sad and a truthful one too- -
that the hate lamented Hardy Wall al
ways told. And in further extenuation
of Albert's apparent want of care, we
"Would state ths ' at the precise hour the
two negroes escaped, he (Albert) was being
married. In the first tumultuous joys of
a fast-coming honeymoon, who would
be so groveling as to give a thought to
negro jailbirds ? It is too much to expect
; of a mortal man ! Snipes had already
-"flown up the creek, and what mattered
the rest ? Remember the man of the par
able who had " married a wife" a ad there
fore could not attend the feast-and be
lenient towards Albert.
There now remains 1 ut two prisoners
in the jail-a young white man whose
name we forget, and Henry Kilcrease, the
famous negro who so horribly murdered
his wife two years ago-and who was
sentenced to be hanged, and has not been
hanged-and who does not get a new
trial-and who broke his leg in escaping
last winter-and who now lies there in
definitely, a half starved cripple.
If there was ever a spot upon God's
earth where negroes and Radicals have
had a fair chance, and proved themselves
wanting, that spot is assuredly Edgefield
County. When negroes in Edgefield
County complain of not having a fair
chance, then absurdity and want of rea
son reach their climax.
" Thirty-nine lashes on the bare back"
is proposed in New Jersey for any mau
who accepts an office the duties of
which he knows himself incapable to
perform. Go up head, Jersey. And bless
God, ye pubiic officials of Edgefield, that
vour lines have not fallen to you in that
Twenty Bollara reward for Snipes
" alive." That is good. Take notice that
the dead body of Snipes has no money
value. However, we should not speak
idly or unfeelingly of poor old man Snipes.
Ile got into trouble by means of two
wild and unruly sons, and had already
served out seven of his nine months sen
tence. For God's sake let him alone. Let
him continue to fy up the creek. Capt.
Clinton Ward and his neighbors have
charitably cared for the old man's family
a long time. .Let Snipes fly to his own
and rest with them.
According to the suggestion of our
valued agricultural friend, published some
three weeks back, wo oi?w&d moro than

But none have been sent us. We now

And others will surely follow.

Letter From Edgeficld-Morc Pris
EDGEFIELD C. H., Sept. 17.
To the Editors of thc Union-Herald :
GENTS-As I have a few leisure mo
ments, i thought I would write you a few
lines, to let vou know how old Edgefield
is.getting along. The most interesting
theme in town this morning is the escape
Di'more prisoners from tue Edgefield jail,
on Wednesday night last. One prisoner,
by the name of Snipes, white, who was
Serving out a sentence of thc court, was
sent out of the jail to the public well,
which is about fifty yards from the jail,
for a bucket of water for the other priso
ners, but, to the discomfiture of the jailor,
he has not returned with that bucket
of water. I have not learned whether
the prisoners have been watered since ho
left or not ; tho general impression is that
Snipps has flown up the creek. On last
night two other prisoners, confined on thc
charge of murder, left ?.hat lonely domi
cile, called jail. JtThey did not gp out of
?be door like gentlemen, os Snipes did,
but, with a piece of hoop iron, they re
opened an old hole in the wall, which has
been kept for the usc of prisoners who de
sire to escape from this lonely place, and
which Las been used for that purpose for
the last year or two. This makes the
fifth squadlhat has escaped from thc jail
at this place within about twelve months,
making in all twelve or fifteen prisoners.
The names of the last two that left were
respectively Lang Goodman and Eas
Scott, both'colored. The last named gen
tleman was but a short time ago arrested
in Augusta, Ga., and brought to this state
upon a requisition of his excellency Gov.
D. H. Chamberlain. So much for the jail
at lins place. The crops generally in this
rotmfr hnvc been greatly Injured by tho
drought. The county auditor of Edge
field county has got his books corapieted
(both auditor's and treasurer's duplicates),
and is now ready for the inevitable tax
levy. Gov. M. L. Bonham, the refereo
appointed by tho court to examine and
have proved all claims against the coun
ty, has been hard nt his duties for about
ten days. One would judge from the
amount ol' business done at the reference
I hat there is a right smart chance of that
kind of imper Nmg around loose.
