Very UnwUlingly DefeBred.
The publication of a large number of
communications, business notices, editori
al articles, &c, must unavoidably be post
poned until next week.
Within the past week we have had repeat
ed and heavy rains-the only really generous
rains we have had since -?he first of May.
They come almost too late-except for
turnips and potatoes. Ar>present the
weather is cold and windy.
On Sunday next the Episcopal Church
will be closed. And probably the Meth
odist also. We hear the painful rumor
that the Rev. Mr. Round has lost another
child-in Anderson, where Mrs. Round is
visiting her family. We earnestly hope
this may prove to be untrue. There
will be divine service in the "baptist
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. M.
.This will be an interesting occasion, call
ing into our midst many of the rery best
men and women of our County. The
delegates to the State Grange will be elec
ted at this meeting. 2*iie State Grange
holds its annual convention in November.
In our issue of this week will be found
three interesting documents, all bearing
upon one andjthe 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 eat. The
old tale-a sad and a truthful one too- -
that the late lamented Hardy Wall al
ways told. And in farther extenuation
of Albert's apparent want of care, wo
would state that 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
wn np the creek, and what mattered
the rest? Remember the man of the par
able who had " married a wife" and there
fore could not attend the feast-and be
lenient towards Albert.
There now remains but 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 man
who accepts an office the duties of
which he knows himself incapable to
perform. Go up head, Jersey. And bless
God, ye public officiate of Edgefield, that
your lines have not fallen to you in that
Twenty Dollare reward for Snipes
" alice." 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.
He 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 fly up the crt^k. Capt.
Clinton Ward and bis 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, ye offered moro than
half our space for original agricultural
communications from our own people.
But none have been sent us. We now
call upon that same friend to take the in
itiative. He is capable in every way.
And others will surely follow.
Our letter from London is elaborate,
polished and interesting-speaking, among
other thing?, of soma of the fine estates
in England that may one day belong "to
the Edgefield Jenningses.
The latest departures from our town
"Northwards, are Mr. W. H. Brunson, who
left us ten days ago to boy fall and win
ter dry goods in New York, and Dr. W.
A. Sanders, who designs swinging around
a hnge circle-New York, Phladelphia.
Baltimore and Charleston-buying every
sort of merchandize that human hands
ever made or human skill invented.
From Ridge Spring tb Graniteville the
talk is- of the. coming-Concert of th?
Brahma Pootra M.usuels. This is to

the Harmony section, departs for Louis

And now comes that experienced and

and claims a champion belt for improved

hang in our office. " Seeing is believing."

"o the Editors of thc Union-Her aid :
GENTS-AS ? have a few leisure mo
lents, 1 thought I would write you a few
nes, io let you know how old Edgefield
? gc. .ng along. The most interesting
berne in town this morning i? the escape
f more prisoners from the Edgefield jail,
n Wednesday night last. One prisoner,
y the name of ?Snipes, white, who was
.?rving out a sentence of thc court, was
ent out of the jail to the public well,
rhich is about fifty yards from the jail,
ar a bucket o? water for the other prisc
icrs, but, to the discomfiture of the jailor,
ic has not returned with that bucket
if water. I have not learned whether
he prisoners have been watered since ho
eft or not ; tho general impression is that
Snipes has flown up the creek. Gn last
light two other prisoners, confined on the
?Larg? of murder, left that lonely domi
lile, called jail, vfhey did not gp out of
he door'liku gentlemen, as Snipes did,
?ut, with a piece of hoop irou, they re
zoned an old hole in the wall, which has
)een kept for the use of prisoners who de
lire to escape from this lonely place, and
vhich has been used for that purpose for
he last year or two. This makes the
ifth squad that has escaped from thc jail
it this place within about twelve months,
naking in all twelve or fifteen prisoners.
The names of the last two that left were
?espectively Lang Goodman and Eas
Scott, both colored. Thc 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. il. Chamberlain. So much for the jail
at this place. The crops generally in this
COUTItT lYftYc been greatly Injured by the
drought. The county auditor of Edge
field county has got his books completed
[both auditor's and treasurer's duplicates),
and is now ready for the inevitable tax
I- vy. Gov. M. L. Bonham, the refe-ee
appointed by t' e court to examine and
have proved a'l claims against the coun
ty, has been hard at his duties for about
ten days. One would judge from the
amount of business done at the reference
lh.il there is a right smart chance of that
kind of naper Nmg around loose.
