Tne Black Belt in Virginia.
A County to Which White Men and
Women Have uo Rights Against
Cor. of the N. Y. Sun.
RICHMOND, Sept. 29.-Mecklen
burg county is in what is known as
the Black Belt of Virginia, the ne
groes largely outnumbering the whites,
and Mahon e's great strength is in
this district Since his advent the
blacks have become so insolent and
riotous that many whites speak of
leaving the county. A letter from a
man in Mecklenburg says that a white
woman, with a bedridden husband
and three-small children, was culti
vating a small tract of land. Near
her lived a thriftless negro, who
made a practice of pulling down her
fence and turning in his hogs to feed
on her crops. She complained in
vain, and her isolated position made
her powerless. At length she got a
dog and drove the hogs out. There
upon the negro assaulted her, and,
with foul epithets, threatened her
with death. She applied to a lawyer,
and he said if giving her $100 would
secure the punishment of the offend
ing party for the wrong and insult
he would cheerfully give it ; but that
unfortunately her skin was white,
and thit ol' the offender black, and
for that reason he was compelled to
advise quiet submission to the wrong;
no white man or white woman hav
ing, in his opinion, any practical ?
rights agninst a black man or black
woman in the county of Mecklen
burg. The letter says: "Negro
mobs have forcibly taken colored
prisonei s charged with crime from
officers of the law. White men, offi
cers of the law and conservators of
the pea^?av?'bee'n^reated with hoi
;erapt\?nd stricken -down by these
nobs/for co other offence ?than^ that
edings, "and to asserc in n proper
^^Ber the supremacy of'thelaw."
Upon an application for bail recently
made for a white man, a negro Jus
tice of the Peace, in announcing bi-*
decision, said : " Send him to jail ; he
ought to be sent to hell."
? ? . ? y - .
If any white man is reckless, fool
ish or wicked enough to wish for the
suecefs of a Mahone movement in
this State, he ought to read the ac
count of "The Black "Belt of Vir
ginia" published elsewhere to day and
remember that what is now in the
Old Dominion miy be in the Palmet
tb State. The black man will inevi
tably rule the party of which he is
the strength, and our experience of
the black man's rule here is still fresh
in our memories. .We know how
true the sketch of the situation in
Mecklenburg county is because we
have recently undergone similar
: The white man who harbors thoughts
of opposing the Democratic [arty,
harbors treason to his State, his race,
his family and civilization.
The Cowpens Monument.
A monument has been erected in
South Carolina to celebrate the famous
battle of Cowpens. Geoi gia is on that
monument memorially as one of the
glorious thirteen orginal States, and.it
was understood that our people would
contribute, thronen their Legislature,
$250 toward sharing the expanse of
the monument. Virginia promised
?1SO[$250, but nothing has come of
the ol ligation since the poor old com
monwealth Jell under the domination*
of Cameron, Mahone and the. Black
Bridge. Georgia should not stand in
such a relation to Virginia^ vsjid yet
she -must endure that association for
a time at least. The monument was
built, under pledges presumed to be
binding, that Georgia whose name in
bronze is inscribed upon the shaft,
would, be good for $250. All of the
old thirteen original States have sent
their quotas, with tho exception of
-Georgia and Virginia. We understand
that there is a constitutional inhibi
tion against a subscription of this sort.
If so let the people, at least, make up
the paltry sum required. We urge
this, with the more earnestness, be
There are ten cotton factories with
in a radius of thirty miles of Char
lotte, North Carolina, and nine gold
mines in operation. It is safe to say
that more gold is dug out of the mills
than out of the mines. The produc
tion of gold in the State of North
Carolina which has passed through
the United States mints . amounts al
together to $10,736,316, as" we learn
from the Charlotte Journal Observer.
How much it c ost to get this , gold
out of the ground is not ' known.
Probably more than its value.
" How much is thi? leg of mutton?"
inquired a sleek-faced chap of a
butcher. ".Well, sir," said the knight
of the clever, "'I shall chargo you-1"
" All right," exclaimed the stranger,

of the past, and that the people of the
South are ready to welcome and shake
in friendship the baud ol\those who
wore ti?'efcltw i&th?d?ys of-civil strife,
is a glorious - truth. But wbile this
is'true there is no reason why they
should have any desire for Mr.'Beech-.
er to visit them. A few years ago,
when> th;^ dr^adfujh? yettow-rfey^t
fccprrrge was depopulating*- thentities
of New Orleans, Memphis; land other
smaller places Beecher was lecturing
ip ibis city. . At that time contribu
tions were being raised and forwarded
all over the country to sufferers along
the Mississippi' T? vet. ? proposition
was made to Breecher by a number
of distinguished citizens of San-Fran ,
cisco to deliver one lecture ibr-tlje
benefit o: the sufferers.
' -He refused to lecture unlees paid
$i,500. Just tbink of it. A professed
Christian and renowned preach?r, who
had wfp^.andjprayed over the ? ursa
of African slavery for forty years, re
fuses to wag his tongue in behalf of a
Bick and- dying; people unless soiled
with $1,500 in gold. Again, when
Congress passed t he Chinese-restriction
bill, this same humanitaria^ gets cn
his knees at the ffeet of President
Arthur, and implores him, in the
name oi 'l'theT f^herhood^of God and
the brotherhood of man,,r topeto the
bill. Hii pret?nd?d"'love for the seri's
of Asia is no lesa hypocritical than
was and is his pretended sympathy for
the negroes ol' the South. Were it
not true that he was the authoi of
one of the most'damning scandals that
ever disgraced "the courts of the
country, he would to-day be:the most
dangerous man in America. ?
lu jjsis lectures delivered, in this
city, ?b?iit a week ago,- he .in sub
stance declared that'he was the friend
of the rich and an enemy of the poor ;
that competition between the degraded
slaves ol China and the white laboring
men of America would be a blessing
to our country. He practically .went
.is far in ridiculing and repudiating
the divinity of the Bible as did Vol
taire or Tom Paine. Indeed, it sounds
strangely to hear the Banner speak
3t him asan " eminent divine." . ?
To speak of him as a lecherous
mountebank who keeps his tongue"

Tbe Pride and Unanimity of Edge

Editor Press- and. Banner.: Ther

as truly delightful, and; -this time ha
been reached, and the ioc.caajon'truf
appreciated by the six young gentle
men mentioned in your last issue, wh
attended the ball for the purpose
chronicled in your last paper. The;
-left Abbeville in all the style that yoi
have published and maintained tha
same arrangement' throughout thei
trip. On passing Hard Labor creel
a.6heer was given for Edgefield county
and a blaBt from the horn that the]
bore was cheerily given to our neigh
boring county, and all recognized thai
**??-fir.eat. distinction due Edgefielt
waa chiefly due to its near 'approacl
to our grand old county ofJVbbeville
>' ."We reached Edgefield village ic
due time when " we were taken ir
charge by some its most prominent citi
zens, and every courtesy and the kind
est attention was shown us: After ?
refreshing night of sleep,, and the
next day after seeing the-di?ereal
places ol'interest and witnessing th?
review of the military by Gen Maui
gault and a tilt by the Edgefield Ran
'gen, we" pr?pared "ourselves for~t?e
chief attraction of the occasion, thc
.ball, and :i was a ball such as we an
not accustomed to in this community,
.While we are not deficient in elegant
and refined1 ladies, we; do lack thc
delightful music that was discoursed
on this occasion, and I was impressed
with the. contrary custom that ob
tains of having ladies, cavalrymen,
soldiers and citizen from all parts ol
the county, all of whom felt the most
intense interest in their different or
ganizations and the kindest and best
wishes for the county, coupled with a
pride in their orgauizitionp, their
county and their village, all ot' them
appeared perfectly at home, and
among their bosom fiiende and com
panions. Whereas in Abbeville- we
are . divided into cliques- and: each
hamlet has its advocates to the detri
ment of other localities. In Edgefield
the command and military companies
are made up of members from all
parts of the county and from/diversified
interests. Why cannot we in Abbeville
get up the same pride and the same
unanimity of opinion ?
At the ball, with the inspiring
mutic, beautiful ladies, , and the kind
attention oQMrs. Pickeus, we felt at
borne. Mrs. Pickens is making great
efforts to put the South i^rolina Room

ONE or THE SIX.

. . [Cor. af The yews and Courier.)
GREENVILLE. Oct. 3 -Anothei
death occurred to-Jay in the Teague
family, making the sixth since JnJj
14 h last. The iden ol the lever orig
mating Irotn a local' c-tuae is at onct
.suggested, and is doubtless ti tie. The
building, the Greenville Ho'.el, i.
situated in :i: very., he iii hy locality, ai
a considerable ?leva i n ab^ve ne gh
borbood streams, aud the natural
drainage of the vicinity ifkciively
carrits away filthy accumulation?,
except Irom the premises'ol' the hotel,
which are enclosed. It is ?ftutted
in a populous portion of the city on
one ol the principal thoroughfares ol
West Greenville-Augusta . street
and in the immediate neighborhood,
where numbers of families reside,
there is no sickness at.all. These
facts point conclusively to a local
Since the first death of the six the
j premises have uudergone renovation
in the way of a general cleaning up
and removing of everything in the
shape cf decaying matter, but the ill
ness of the other members of the
family followed one after another in
quick succession, showing that the
germ of the disease- was formed be
.forehand. The building has an exten
sive basement which is underneath the
?enrface ol the ground several feet.
The basemen! floors, made of plank
are upon sills which lie on the ground,
and beneath them there is no ventila
tion. The floors are therefore more
or less damp and the silla i doubtless
in process ot decay. Mr. Teague with
his family came lrom Laurens County:
in January last and succeeded the
former occupant as proprietor of the
hotel. Having no use for the base
ment part of the building he rented
it to negroes tojiia.io. Eight families
of negroesTi?ve been residing-therein
afThe same time. The well of water
in the back yard of the NUel, which
has heretofore been notod tor its puri
ty and sweetness, ie said to have be
come impure and undesirable as
drinking water. All these things
point to probable cause for the disease,
which is pionounced a very malignant
form of typhoid fever. The health of
the city is and has been fully up to
its well known standard of excellence.
The deaths reported include the moth
er, a daughter and. four sons. Three
of the remaining four children ?re
still ill with the fever, one of th=m
seriously. Of the family of eleven
who came to Greenville in January :
all have been attacked with fever ex
cept the father and one of the sons.
Mr? Teague himsell has been ill. but
probably from nervous exhaustion, j
The theory is held by. some ?hat the '
disease was brought with the family
from Laureus, but as to this 1 have

For LOY? of a Little Child.
Io a factory io Cincinnati there ii
a workman who had one small inva
lid child at home. He wrought a
his trade with exemplary fidelity
being always in the shop with th?
opening of the day. He managed
however, to bear each evening to th?
.bedside of his " wee lad," as he callee
him, a flower, a bit of ribbon or ?
fragment of crimson glass-indeed
anything that would lie out on the
white counterpane and give a coloi
to the room. He was ?. quiet, un
sentimental man, but never went
home at night withou i something that
would make the wan face light up
with joy at his return. He never
said to a living soul that he loved
that boy so much. Still he went on
patiently loving "him, And by-and
bye he moved that whole shop into
fiositively real, but unconscious, fel
owehip with him. The workmen
made curious little jars and cups
upon wheels, and painted diminutive
pictures down their side s before they
stuck them in the corners of the kiln
at burning time. One brought some
fruit in the bulge of his apron, and
another engravings in a rude scrap
book. Not one of them whispered a
word, for thia solemn thing was not
to be talked about. They pu* them
in the old man's hat, where he found
them, so he understood all aboutit;
and, believe it or not, cynics, as you
will, but it is a fact that the entire
pottery full of men, of rather coarse
fiber by nature, grew quiet as the
months drifted, becoming gentle and
kind, and some drooped swearing as
the weary look on the patient fellow
worker's face to'd them beyond mis
take that the inevitable shadow was
drawing nearer. Every day now,
some did a piece of work for him and
pu tit on the sanded pLnk to dry so
that he could come later and go ear
lier. So, when the bell tolled, and
the little coffin caine out of the lowly
door, around the corner, out of sight,
there stood 100 stalwart working
men from the pottery with their clean
clothes on, moat of whom gave half
a day's time for the privilege of tak
ing part in the sirapleproceesion, and
following to its grave that smalt bur
den of a child which probably not
one had ever seen.

The Charlotte ..Journal .Observer ol
the Ooh ioBtaou is responsible for the
following yarn :
One of tte cases before fhe'Mayoi
yesterday morning was that of Rufas
Reed, colored, who wae'eharged with
an affray with Sella's little elephant,
and the facta brought out af the'trial
proved that the fight between the
elephant and the man Vas ? severe
one and that the mau whipped the
elephant. Reed had been giving the
elephant a few apples, Lauding it all
except one, which he put in hia vest
pocket. While his attention was
turned the elephant re ched out it-?
trunk and, getting hold bf''Rufus"*
pocket, tried to pull the apple ?ut,
tearing the vest nearly off bet?re'tb-?
wearer's attention was turned'to the
elephant's prank. Seizing the ele
phant's trunk (" snoot ' Reed called
it,) he tried to wrench his vest and
the apple away from ir, but the ele
phant drew its trunk from Reed's
hands and swinging j4 around gave
Reed a terrible blow on the side of
the head. Reed drew back and felled
the elephant to the ground with a
blow from his fist delivered" over thc
eye. The elephant's keeper then at
tacked Reed and R?ed knocked him
down. In the meantinu the elephant
had regained its'legs and gave .Heed
another blow on the side. Recd was
now thoroughly exasperated and sc
tually knocked the elephant ever on
itp back and then left the tent. As
the elephant had left the city and
could not appear in Court, the Mayor
took Reed s stateti nt and let him off
lightly, feeling that the elephant'de
served the flogging. R^ed is a pow
erfully built man and is something of
a giant in proportions. He is the
same man who had the fight with the
heur, in which the bear was killed,
at Lowell some months ago. Hi.-:
fight with the elephant was w.tnessed
by a number of our citia-ns.
