socially, municipally, commercially
religiously, ie pure and proud. Som
idle and ignorant miscreant maj

pr?tent tone or past record. Our co
temporaries who. haye Bpoken some
what harshly in the premises, will,
we know, copy the prompt, manly
ffipd moat truthful ' refutation of In
ear Edgefield Biga School.
We are delighted to chronicle that
the persistent and laudable efforts of
our Male? Academy trustees for the last
too days, have been crowned with
Sattering success, and that the pros
pect for a high-grade school for boys
tod girls io obrNnidst is now ex
tremely good. The trustees have en
gaged Prof. W. D. Seymour, of An
gosta, a popular, experienced and
. advanced educator, who will open
" the school, on the 1st October. A
lady assistant will be engaged; and
vary soon, if our .people do their du
ty, we shall have a permanent and
well-grounded central school which
will be an infinite blessing not only
to cor town but to our whole section
The trustoea have exhibited unwonted
spirit and tenacity in this matter and
' deserve the gratitude^ the public at
large. Let that gratitude be evinced
by a constantly growing interest in
the school-by generosity, active
.sympathy, practical help.
* Col. Join P.? Abney and the Hon
Two or three weeks back, the Hon
. Patrick Walsh, of. Augusta, who is
the Georgia member of the National
Democratic Executive Committee, and
who had been spending a couple of
i npnths in New York, wrote to his
\ paper, the Chronicle and Constitution
alisl, a very sensible, timely lottert
deprecating the violent and unrea.
. aoning casting off of the great Tam
many Organization of New York by
the Democracy-the oldest political
organization io America-and always
Democratic. Many Southern editors
assailed Col. Walsh bitterly for say
ing-as they erroneously construed
him-and persisted io erroneously
construing him-that the Democracy
could not win io the coming Presiden
tial contest without Tammany and
Johfl Kelly. Time-and a very short
tim? at that-bas fully vindicated the
Wisdom and patriotism of Col . Walsh's
letter. Aod we are glad to see that
oar popular compatriot, Col. John R
Abney, now a citizen of New York,
warmly espouses Col. Walnh's de
fence, and applauds his conrad. These
are two level headed men-of purest
patriotism and truest democracy. In
deed when either the purity or the
wisdom of Patrick Walsh's democracy
fails, then may the heavens be ex
peeled to fall 1 Time has broug!

who seem to make a joke of the whe

A Shocking Crime ID Augusta, j
An Old Man Murdered -md His Body
Barned to Hide Evidence of the
AUGUSTA. QA., September 12 -
William Vales, an old maD, employed
aa night watchman in the office of the
Augusta and Summerville Railway
Company in this city, was found dead
in the office this morning. There
was a fearfal contusion on the back
of his head and his body had been
burned to a crisp. Close to the body
were found a pickaxe and an oil can,
the former having evidently been
used to commit the murder and the
contenta of the latter to hide evi
dence of. the crime. The body had
been saturated with oil and then set
on fire. The floor had burned in
boles beneath the body, but the pools
of blood which saturated the space
aboul the corpse had prevented the
building from catching fire. The desk
in the office had been pried open and
$38 stolen. Vales had, it is suppos
ed, been making a tour of the prem
ises and probably waa about to wind
the indicator, as the last puncture in
the dial had been made at l l 30,
when the murder was committed.
There is no clue to the murderer,
who evidently waa some one acquaint
ed with the place. There is much!
indignation in the neighborhood. The
Coroner will hold an inquest to-mor
row. . _
Aiken's New Council.
Special Dispatch to the News and Courier.
AIKEN, September 8.-Oar aunual
town election is just ever, resulting
as follows: Intendant, W. Quitman
Lbavis; wardens, H. F.Warneke, J.
Zed Dunlap, John B. Heriot, Robert
A. Chafee, John Phillips and I. A.
Givens. The two latter are colored
men and the only members of the old
council who go into the new, the
balance of the ticket being an entire
new deal. This ticket was nominated
at a citiz n6* meeting held on last
Wednesday evening in the Court
house. A purely local issue brought
out one more candidate frr warden
than on the regular ticket, and this
waa the only opposition and the qply
excitement "of the election. The regu
lar ticket elected is a good one. Mr.
Davis has been in the intendant's
office already aa intendant in 1882 83,
and he will serve in that capacity
with his usual firmness and ability,
The four new wardens are young and
progressive men, and will look closely
after the material advancement ano
improvement of our already thriving
county seat. The election passed of
very quietly and peaceably.

RIDDLED WITH BUCKSHOT.-The
body of a negro named Charles Ward
was found cn the Beach Hill road,
in Beaufort County, South Carolina,
opposite Savannah, on Monday morn
ing. The cause of the man's death
was very evident. A frightful wound
in his right side was filled wi h buck
shot, some of which had passed en
tirely through his bedy. Trial Jus
tice Pelot held an inquest during the
day, but it was impossible to discover
any evidence relating to the matter,
and a verdict of " killed by unknown
parties" was rendered. It is aaid
that on Saturday several weeke ago
Ward and another nego entered a
store in the neighborhood and com
menced beating the negroes who were
in the place tiaiing, and threatened
to kill 8omeof thtm. It is supposed
that some one whom he maltreated
at that time killed him. Ward was
from the Combahee River, and waa a
worthless negro, who lived upon his
more industrious fellows.--Port Poy
