Death ot Mr. Manchester Padgett.
Mr. Manchester Padgett died at his
home on Cloud's Creek, at 5 o'clock on
Monday morning, aged 70 years. Mr.
Padgett waa stricken with paralysis many
months ago, bnt partially recovered, al
though his condition had since then been
quito feeble. A false report got out last
fall andgot into the papers, that he was
dead. Before enfeebled as above, Mr.
Padgett was one of Edgefield's most en
terprising and successful farmers ; one who
"lived at home" and who enjoyed the
fruits of his mast excellent system of
agriculture. As a citizen and neighbor he
was just what might have been expected
of the christian man and p"Titlfm,in *bW
r'had ever been. He leaves a widow anS
several children end grandchildren to
mourn his loss.-Monitor 23rti till.
Fur the Advertiser
lu Memory of Manchester Padgett.
In memory of our highly esteemed
and honored friend, MANGU ESTER PADG
ETT, who, after years of .suffering, de
parted this life on the 28th July. His
was the life of a true Christian, and
Liko a mournful wail of music,
Or a tender sad refrain,
Came to him a sweet voice saying,
Loved one leave that world of pain.
Patiently he had awaited
Long the summons from above,
So that ho might dwell with Jesus,
lu that land of light and love.
Though a light has gone from earth,
There Ls an angel fur the throng,
That round Jehovah's throne gives birth
To harmonics of harp and song.
Ere be reached that cold dark river,
.Fanned by Death's mysterious galo,
He saw crossing the stream to meot him,
Tho aged ferryman, grim and palo.
Life for him with its toils are over,
He is now forever blest;
TheSavior's voice has sweetly called bini,
To como np there and be at rest.
Gently bo called his loved one home.
Finished the task which Ho had given,
His woury feet no moro shall roam,
His work is done, he rests in Heaven.

which took place at Clintonward on the
night of Tuesday, th* 4*li instant, in which
Mattie Isaac, a young negro woman, stab

persons, with others, were returning linnie
at about midnight from a colored church,
On Thursday, the Ct h, the woman was

Preceedlugs ol' Court.
We mention'.he most important c-.scs
alnudy disposed of, or to be disposed of:
Young Glenn was not tried last week as
had been decided upon, but will probably
be this week. Joe Moore, the negro fellow
accused of arson, was copricted, and re
commended by the j arv ?. mercy. In the
case of tho State against Hinch Hughes,
for assault and battery and carrying con
cealed weapon, the accused was pronounced
not guilty. Goode Head, the young white
man tried for murder, was found guilty of
manslaugber. A young white man named
Snipes, accused of assault and battery with
intent to kill, was found guilty of assault
and battery and sentenced to six months
in thc county jail or n fine of one hundred
dollars. A young white man named Yonce
accused of assault and battery, was cleared.
Falkner, indicted for aggravated assault,
was found guilty, and sentenced to pay
?200. He paid it and depailed.
In the beginning of the second week,
and with the jury of the second week,
Sheriff Ouzls was cleared of the charge
of allowing prisoners to escape. Or in
plainer English, the jury acquitted him
of evil intent in allowing certain prisoners
too much liberty and too many privileges.
Of course we all understand and appre
ciato the fact that it was simply too much
kindnesss of heart that led our good-Sheri ff
into this error, if error lhere was. On Fri
day, Mattie Isaac tho reputed Clinton ward
murderess, is to be tried. The case of the
State va. Joe Whilo and two other negro
men for riot and murder-the Datk Cor
ner negroes implicated in the riot at the
time of the killing of young Blackwell-,
has been continued until next term.
Goode Head and Joe Moore havo not
The J udge has instructed the Sherill
and his constables to allow nono but at
torneys and officiala of the Court to enter,
or at all events frequent, the bar. In
such weather os we have now, the said
bar often becomes very uncomfortable
trom bein?; too crowded.
The Courier-Journal publishes a
letter written fifty years ago to Geo.
D. Prentice, savagely attacking him
for objecting editorially to Richard
M. Johnson because he had a negro
wife. The irate correspondent says:
" Did not the President who gave
ne our best Administration do the
same? Was not Thomas Jefferson
charged with keepng a negro wife,
and did he not make a good Presi

(if fault it be) in a man's private do
