WEDNESDAY, MAY 3.
DEATii< OF CAPT. LYCURGUS
... ; CHARLTON.
"He seemed the thing he was, and
Each office of the social hour
To noble manners, as the dower
And native growth of noble mind,
And thus he bore without abuse
The grand old name of gentleman.'1
Died, at his home in this town,
on Saturday morning, the 29th ef
April, Capt. Lycurgus Charlton, iu
the 72d year of his age.
The demise of this honorable
and honored, and good and worthy
citizen, causes universal lament
throughout our town, and we all
feel and deplore his loss, and will
long miss byj friendly greeting,
kind word?, wise counsel and gen
tle admonition, tor we all loved
him-white and black alike-and
held him in high regard. Truly,
he was one of nature's noblemen,
and. more, "an honest mau-the
noblest work of God."
Capt. Charl toa was a native of
Tennesse, and when the civil war
began between the States, he
promptly allied himself on the
side of the Confederacy, and with
a regiment from his State, was as
signed to the Western army, where
his gallantry was conspicuous and,
at the battle of Shiloh, whilst
leading his company, he received
a around in the left arm necessi
tating amputation. But his ardor
for the cause and rights of the
South were as buoyant as ever,
and though he could not 1? nger
wield the sword, yet he continued
in the service, and was transferred
to South Carolina asa recruiting
officer. And whilst thus engaged,
he met the beautiful and accom
plished Miss L'izzie Dozier, daugh
ter of the wealthy and prominent
old Mr. Allen Dozier, of the Saluda
section, and ere long they were
happily married; and happily
they have lived and loved from
thence on, and on, and on, until
now alas ! stern cold death sepa
rates them ! A link in the golden
chain haE been broken ! But per
haps only for a littie while ! And
theii the re-union "on the other
side" will be a joy eternal, and
love for evermore.
"We must all die ?
All leave, ourselves, it matters not
Xor how, so we die well; and can that
Man that does so
Need lamentation for him?"
HELP ALONG EACH OTHER.
"If any little love of ours
Can make one life the sweeter,
If any little care of ours
Can make one step the fleeter,
If any little help may ease
The burden of another,
God five us love and care and strength
To help along each other."

We are delighted to state that Mrs
J. M.Jones, who it was thought had a
slight paralytic stroke some three
weeks since, is now up ?nd about, and
almost well again.
Senator and Mrs. B. R. Tillman were
in town on Sunday, and were present
w*ith che large audience, who had as
sembled at the Baptist church to pay
tribute to the memory of Judge L.
Dr. W. E. Prescot*, of the Red Hill
section, was on our streets on Satur
day last, and seemed quite hopeful of
a good crop year-and reported that
farmers generally in his nrighborhood
-white and black-were all working
with a .vim, and striving with might
and main for a big crop at gathering
Last week we had something to say
about one Rev. Wm. Peters on,, colored,
up in the Richardsonville neighbor
hood, inciting the negroes in that vi
cinity to riot, murder, utz. Xow, from
current reports, and from a card Rev
Teterson publishes in the Xews and
Courier, it seems there was no iounda
tion for the ugly rumors against bim.
and we are glad that such' is the case
Major M. C. Butler, (Cab), youngest
son of Gen. M. C. Butler, and brother
of our Dr. Frank Butler, holds an im
f jrtant ofljce under the United States
government in the city of Havana,
Cuba. His popularity is such that the
Cubans have named a brand of cigar
ettes after him, a package of which
lies before us at. this writing, the su
perscription on which reads as follows :

Mr. D. A. Tompkins, the cotton mill
and mill machinery man of the South,
was with us on Saturday and Sunday
last. He was in the main looking after
his milling interests here,of which he
is|very?proud, and of a right ought to be.
And he brought with him several very
handsome designs for our Confederate
monument, which the ladies are going
to build-in the "sweet by and by."
And further, we think thal that au
dacious little fellow Cupid has given
him a little personal affair to look
after. But-but-more later.
For the information of those of our
farmers-the all-cotton farmers-those
who believe in raising 4 cents cotton
-and buying 65 cents corn and forage
-we respectfully beg to state thar
merch.mt W. W. Adams has sold at a
Dice profit all the 30 tons of pea vine
hay he raised last year on a few acre?
of ground, and with but little work.
But that next year he will be prepared
to accommodate quite a number of th?
all-cotton fellows as he says, he can
beat 4 cents cotton with pea vine hay
at 50 cents per hundred. And gener

The regular quarterly meeting of

There will also be a barbecue dinner
on this occasion.

called "The Mouse Trap" and is a very
laughable play. General admission

duced the debt on the S. C. C. I. Brass

come out on the night of the 5tb, so
that the debt can be wiped out. All of

And would rise to remark, that of
all the abominable "Cheap John" af
fairs, called entertainments, or shows?
or concerts, or magic lanterns, or ne
gro minstrels, and so forth, and so
forth, that ever "bamboozled" the peo
ple of Edgefield, that "Edwin Rostell
in his Great Dramatic Sbakespcrean
Plays," on Friday night last, capped
the climax. A full bouse were in at
tendance-the bon-toos of the town
lawyers, doctors dentists, interspersed
with Baptists, Methodists, Presby
terians and Episcopalians, and bank
presidents and cashiers, and merchants
and clerks, and counter-jumpers-and
everybody almost-and tneir wives
and daughters and sweethearts-were
ail there, on the very tip-toe of expec
tancy. And then and there "Edwin
Kostell," the great, the famous Edwin
Rostell, proved a weakling of the first
water-a full 44-calibre ?fraud-a mis
erable failure. And now many so ab
hor him that forever hereafter his very
name will be a stench in the nostrils
of our people.
Plum Brauch on a Boom.
Our old friend, Mr. Marion B. Stur
key, of Plum Branch, honored our
sanctum with a visit on Monday last,
which we enjoyed very much. And he
told us many pleasant things concern
ing Plum Branch, au J its dear old
time people, and its promising pros
pective surroundings. He is emphati
cally a Plum Branch man-knows to a
dead certainty that the Bli.ck Diamond
is "going to split the town wide open,"
-that Dr. Joe Jennings and some
Northern capita?its are going to put up
an oil mill and a yarn factory very
soon-that Mr. T. W. Morton, the king
merchant and leader in push and pro
gress of the town, is preparing to put
in two or three of the round bale
Lowrey presses in his big ginning es
tablishment-and that some of the
Freelands will establish in the near
future a fruit anti vegetable canning
factory-and somebody else is going
to run an ice factory andan up-to-date
tannery "conjointly," and other im
provements that have escaped our
memory. In fact, according to friend
Sturk?y, Plum Branch is "out o' sight"

Cotton Anti Tea Farm? For South
Due Weet, April 27 -Secretary
of Agriculture Wilson is delighted
with his tour of South Carolina
thus far. He came through from
Charleston to this point today,
standing the long ride wc 'A. Mr.
Wilson was much gratified at what
he saw of the cou ni ry from the car
windows and platform.
Pie is an entertaining talker and
doubtless will be called upon at
tomorrow night's oratorical contest,
in which he is a judge, to make a
brief address to the audience.
Mr. Wilson expressed the deepest j
interest in tea culture
and is so much gratified at what
he saw of Dr. Sheppard's tea farm
at Summerville that today he said
he intended to join Dr. Sheppard
in his efforts, and proposed to have
the government take the matter of
tea culture up. He says the soil of
South Carolina is specially adapted
to the cultivation of tea and be
lieves the industry can be introduc
ed and made to develop as rapidly
as the beet sugar industry in his

Threatens a Race War.
New York, April 26.-At the an
nual conference of the African
Methodist Episcopal church in
Jersey City today, Bishop Walters
spoke on the recent burning at the
stake of Sam Hose, colored, at
Palmetto, Ga. The bishop assarted
that the charge of assault which
was put forward in justification of
the treatment of Hose was unfound
ed aud would soon be shown to be
false. He warned the whites of
the North that if the Negroes of the
South were not given fair treatment
a race war would be precipitated.
"The Cubans and Filipinos,"
Bishop Walters said, "for whom
we have spent so much money and
shed so much blood to free them
from Spanish oppression, were
never treated so barbarously in
time of peace by that government
as some Negroes have been in the
States of Arkansas, Texas, North
Carolina, South Carolina and
"Those who speak flippantly of
our extermination," he said, "will
find when that work is begun that
all the white people of America
will not be against the Negro any
