RUTAL MtUDER.-OIe of the nost ter-v
lie crimes that shock and appal a whole
community, was perpetrated near this town
on the night of the 22d inst. The circum,
stances are briefly as follows. Mr. Alex. D.
Walker, residing within half a mile of the
corporate limits, was roused from his sleep
about 12 P. M., by a negro man who stated
that a Mr. Owens, of Spartanburg, camped
near the bridge, was very ill and desired
some tea. The tea was prepared and sent to
the supposed sufferer. In twenty minutes
:after. the same negro returned, with the in
formation that Mr. Owens was dying, and
requested Mr. Walker to accompany him to
the camp. Mr. Walker at once arose andim
company with Butler Estes, his cousin,
obeyed the summons, After proceeding
some distanee, the party was hailed by a
man in the woods and informed that the
wagon had been moved some distance back.
They retraced their steps and were joined by
a second negro. While walking in the di.
rection of the supposed wagon, the two white
men somewhat in advance, Mr. Estes was
alarmed by a half,stifled shout, and on look
ing back perceived that Mr. Walkr was in
the grasp of the negro who first visited the
house. At the same instant the negro who
had joined them on the road attempted to
seize Mr. Estes, who, being unarmed, fled
to the house. lie outran his pursuer and
before reaching the house, heard the dis
charge of a pistol. Fifteen minutes after
wards the front door was burst open by the
same two negroes, one of whom discharged
a pistol, the ball from which narrowly es,
caped striking the aged mother of Mr. Walk
er, who was lying in bed.
They then ransacked the house at their
leisure, remaining for an hour or longer,
and selecting such articles as suited their
inclination. The body of Mr. Walker was
found early Monday morning, lying in the
centre of the public road. A pistol ball had
entered the right temple, traversing the brain
and producing instant death. No -other
wounds were discovered. Mr Walker was
one of our most esteemed citizens and his
untimely fate has elicited general sympathy.
The two murderers are still at large, and ap
pear to have been complete strangers. One
is described as a stout, black fellow, twenty
one or two years of age and of quick speech .
The other is copper-colored , taller and
heavier than his companion. Both were
armed with pistols. Col. Bliss, the Come
mandant of this Post, in conjunction with
the citizens has spared no efforts to secure
the arrest of the villians. The murder was
most boldly planned and deliberately execu,
ted and has occasioned an intense degree of
excitement. It is sincerely to be hoped that
the scoundrels who committed the atrocious
crime will speedily be captured and brought
to jurtice,.-Chester Standard.
A STABTLNG . EnroSE-DRUNKENESs
AMONG WOMEN.-The Round Table publishes
a startling article upon drunkenness awong
women. It says the vice is prevalent among
fashionable ladies, and that some of the
f most elegant of them will pass this summer,
not at Saratoga or Newport, as usual, but at
an asylum for inebriates. The writer mnti
mates that the vice of fashionable drinking
is, now more prevalent among the ladies than
among the gentlemen of this country, and
-certaim dress makers m. ke it a point to fur
nish their customers with drink, while -in
some stores bottles of wine are also kept on
hand for lady shoppers, and in others the
merchants allow their boys to go to the
nearest bar-room for liquor when the ladies
desire it. Whiskey and brandy are the fa
vorite drinks of these ladies, and as some of
the saloons they freqnent do not have these
liquors on the bill of fare, a neat little sign
"If you do Dot see what you want, ask for
it," gives the hint to the initiated. In
dress makers' bills the significant item
"small trimmings" often covers up the ex
- - pense of liquors which the lady has ordered
through the modiste who panders to her
-vitiated taste, while at the watering places
a bribe to the waiter procures a secret sup,.
ply of liquor, w hich, by the connivance of
the landlord,is charged as "extra luncheons "
It is asserted that girls of eighteen, daugh%
ters of most respectable New York mer
chants, have been seen grossly intoxicated
inl Broadway stages and upon the public
streets, and that no superiority of intellect
or social position is sufficient to guard a
lady against this vice,
WHOSE CHIIJ Is IT.-When Sherman's
army stopped at Smithfield, N. C., about
fifteen months since, (says the Charleston
Courier,) there was found with it a little girl,
five or six years of age, of bright counte,.
nance and pleasant ways, evidently well
bred thus fair, who, the .soldiers said, fol
lowed them from South Carolina, Georgia
or Tennessee. The corps to which the little
girl seemed attached camped near the house
of a lady who had a little girl of nearly the
same age, and the two little ones became so
fondly attached, that the lady induced the
soldiers to give the child, to her, and she has
been with her ever since. The Child has
dark eyes, and is quite pretty. She had been
so long with the army that she could give no
intellig ble account of her home. The lady
who has possession of this little wanderer, is
very much attached .to her, and treats her in
every way as her own daughter. P'arties
interested are referred to the "Baptist Min
ister," Smithfield, Johnston county, North
Carolina. The papers of South Carolina,
Georgia and Tennessee are requested to copy
* .this information.
GEN. II. W. GARY.-From the Richmond
Examiner, of the 26th, we copy the follow'.
ing notice of Gen. Gary.
We were gratified yesterday to receive a
-visit from General M. W. Gary, -of South
Carolina, a cavalry officer of merit and dis"
tinction during the late war. At its out,
break he raised a company, which he come
manded, and.at the first battle of Manassas
his command fought with conspicuous brave
ry captu.ring a number of guns from the
enemy. From the position of Captain, Ga
rey rose through all the intermediate grades,
was made Brigadier,General, and placed in
command of a brigade of cavalry, which
participated in many of the hard'fought
battles waged for the possession of Rich
mond, and repulsing, single,handed, severali
advances upon the city. General Garey, re
posing upon his well-earned military laurels,
has entered upon the practice of law at Edge
field Court House, South Carolina.
4 TERRIBLE TRAGED.-Bud Hammond, a
son of M. C. Hammond, of A tlanta, Ga., was
brutally murdered by two negroes on Satur,
day last. A slight altercation had occurred
between young Hammond and a black boy
in the employ of his father, but a settlement
had been made, and no further difficulty was
anticipated. At night, however', as young
Hammond was in the rear of his store he was
seized by the mother of the boy, a stout
woman, and held firmly,until hi3 throat had
been cut by her son. Both of the parties
have been arrested.

TURNIPs.-The farmer is admonished to
sow plentifully for turnips. Ruta Baga
sown in drills produce well and can be sown
to advantage from now to first September.
The white varieties are , already well known
and their qualities.
KILLED.-Amos Wesley, a freedman, was
shot and almost instantly killed last Wed
nesday night, by some person or persons un'
THE WEATHER.-The heated term and
the drouth are alike broken, and blessed with
copious and delightful rainy seasons a gene"
ral refreshing is felt. The desponding farmer
is hopeful. To a portion of the corn crop
the favorable changc comes too late, but to
the general crop incalculable good has fallen.
Except that the cotton plant is small and
not advanced, the crop has experienced no
other injury. The rains seem to have been
general as beard from various quarters.
THE GALAXY.-The August 1st number
of this excellent magazine is on hand. Its
table of contents is varied and good. It will
be remembered, the Galaxy is published
fortnightly, at 25 cents a number, or $5 for
the year, $3 for the half year. We recommend
it to the reading public. Address W. C. &
F. P. Church, No. 39 Park Row, New York.
The Atlantic Cable
Is successfully laid. Art and science are
culminating! It would seem that the annihi
lation of time and space are typified by
steam and electricity. What next? Mes
sages are received on this continent in eight
minutes after they leave Europe. Think of
this! The first regular message from Eu%
rope was peace between the beligerant Ger
mans. We trust it may be the preeursor
in the near future of universal peace-when
"holiness shall become triumphant through:
out the world."
The reader is referred to the card of Messrs.
R. S. & J. W. Goodgiori, wool carders, 9
miles west of Laurens C. H. Specimens .of
the wool carded at their mill have been left
with us and at the store of Carwile & Mc
Caughrin. The specimens exhibited are pro
nounced very superior, being free from nap
and of great length of roll. From what we
learn the machinery employed is entirely
new and of the latest and most approved
patterns; and the superintendent of the work
is a man of large experience, having been
engaged for thirty years in the business.
Wool left at Carwile & McCaughrin will be
taken to the mill and returned in ten days.
The Barbecue of Messrs, Hunter and Dirge
came off on \Wednesday with considerable
eclat. Perhaps not -as many were on the
ground as were looked for, but enough we
hope to keep the energetic gentlemen from
loss. It was decidedly the most orderly and
best arranged barbecue we have ever attend,
ed. The dinner was ample, the meats capi,
tally served, and the fixings abundant. One
of the Leatures was the number-of ladies who
graced it with their presence and who we
are satisfied enjoyed the feast. -As a conses.
quence of freedom a large number of ladies
and gentlemen of color filled up the outside
settng, forming an artistic ebony frame
work to the picture.
FIRE.-An attempt was made last Satur
day night, between 11 and 12 o'clock, to fire
Capt. W, H. Webb's premises, on Caldwell
st., gt owing to the salutary effect of a co
pious shower of rain during the early part of
the night, and the timely assistance of seves
ral neighbors, it was happily frustrated.
There seems to be an evident design to de
stroy the town, and it behooves the citizens
to be on the alert. Would it not be well to
establish a permanent and efficient police
force, and, in the absence of a fire departs
ment, organ ize a hook and ladder company.
A real alarm bell, too, one that would arouse
the citizens in every section of the town. and
suburbs, is needed.
THE PROTRACTED MEETING.-The meet
ing at the Methodist Church, we are pleased
to say, shows no sign of abatement. It is
now in its third week, and the interest mania
fested in the large nightly .attendance is
worthy of a christian community. The
number of penitents is large, and gratifying,
alike to pastor, and his able helpers ; while
several have added themselves to the.chr.rch
membership. No more fitting period could
have been selected for this protracted meet*
ing; while violence, demoralization and sin,
of every character, teems through the length
and breadth of our land, a counter influence
should be brought to bear by the religious
and well inclined to arrest if possible this
re'ignof sin. The vials of the divine wrath
are now poured out upon us, and we are
afflicted and humiliated, for an all-wise pur
pose, and the good and true of all branches
of the christian church should realize this
ondition and set an example by precept and
practice for good, that we may come through
it purified and worthy of the blessings God's
mercy has in store for his people.

Mr. Lemnuel Lam, of this district, was.bru
tally murdered lait Friday night, by a num
ber of freedmenj together with one or
two white men,! as we are informed.
The instrument used was -'an axe or
hatchet. It appeirs that he was asleep un
der the shade of t large tree near the door
of his dwelling, with a little son by his side.
The party stealtbly approached the sleeper,
and with one fell blow despatched the un
fortunate man, who passed, apparenly,with
out a groan or mtrmur,to the eternal world,
-for his little son slept calmly on, uncon
scious of his fataer's cruel fate. Mr. Lane
had in his possession between eight and nine
thousand dollars in gold, which was the key
to this attrocious design. His daughter, el
dest son and Mr. Heller, a guest, escaped.
The two latter were carried some distance
and tied, but suceeeded in liberating them
selves. It is beieved that the party, after
getting the gold,iade a general distribution,
then stealing a quantity of meat, whiskey
and two mules, went in the direction of Co
lumbia. Before daylight, Saturday morn
ing, as soon as a few men could be got to
gether, pursuit was made. But strange are
the ways of Providence. It would seem that
two of the party, arriving near Columbia,
met several little boys at play, and accosting
them. asked if there was not a nigh cut
across to the Charlotte Railroad, which
was answered in the affirmative ; also if
'there was not a spring near by. The boys
went with them to point out the spring,
when, in stooping to drink, a bag of money
fell from one of the party, which excited an
exclamation of surprise from the boys. They
were hushed up with an oath and a threat.
The men then left the spring, and the boys,
alarmed, went home and informed. Pursuit
was them made by several citizens of Colum
bia, whereupon the party discovering their
pursuers,instantiy ran in opposite directions.
They would not halt. One was shot and the
other captured. The man shot was recog
nized by a colored boy who formerly lived
here, as John Counts, alias John Dawkins,
the other was confined in the Columbia jail.
John Counts had eighteen hundred dollars
in specie abont his person. The other, who
gave his name as Cook, had a small amount
of money,and a pistol with Mr. Lane's name
engraved thereon. We understand that
tvelve or thirteen are under arrest here sus
pected of complicity in the murder.
A NEW ENTERPRISE-ZOOLOGICAL GAR
The burning of the American Museum in
July last has afforded Mr. Barnum an oppor
tunity to inaugurate a long cherished enter
prise, that of arranging a permanent and ins
creasing zoological garden in connection
with his museum. The public will learn
with satisfaction that it is an accomplished
fact. Combiniing his museum with Van
Amburgh's famous menagerie, and an asso
ciation with a capital of two millions of dol
lars, the great experience and wealth of its
projectors entitle it to rank with the institu
tions of Europe. Thirty acres of ground
will be taken up with buildings &c., for the
breeding and care of rare animals, andbirds,
and for training some of them for public
performances. It is scarcely possible in a
limited space to give a correct idea, or an
enumeration of all the curiosities, the won
ders collected from all parts of the world, of
the rare anim'als, the livirig and the dead
which will help to make the great combina
ton the wonder of the w~'orld; suffice it earth,
air and water will-be laid under contribution.
Mr. Barnum sailed for Europe on the 18t.h of
July to secure curiosities, and to confer with
agents, some of whom have already traversed
large portions of Africa and Asia in 'search
of rare animals and other novelties. The
combination will be known as the "Barnum
and Van Amburgh museum and menagerie
company,'' and those two .establishments
will form the nucleii about which is to be
reared the most comprehensive place of
amusement and instruction which has ever
existed on this continent.
THE POPE.-It is announced that for some
time past the health of the Pope has ap
peared to be failing, and his condifion causes
no little anxiety to his Cardinals with whom
he speaks frequently of appzoaching death.
Pius IX., the present Pope, was born in May,
1792, and is 74 years old. He ascended the.
Papal throne in 1846, and has occupied it
twenty years. It is stated' that there is a
general feeling in Rome that no Pope will
hold his- office longer than did St. Peter,
who is said to have governed the Church for
25 years. Adrian I. was Pope nearly 24
years; Pius VI., 24 years, 6 months and 14
days; Pius VII., 23 years, 2 months and six
days, whilst several other Popes governed
the Church for 21 years. It is generally
agreed that the whole number of Popes was

LIVERPOOL, July 21.-The announcement
that Austria had accepted the .proposals for
a suspension of hostillities has caused great
buoyancy in all the markets. The prevailing
opinion especially among Germans being
that peace is almost certaiu to be concluded,

not yet been received. There were no
r--ports of further fighting.

IN AtEMOT.-It falls to our unhappy lot
to chronicle the death of Cnoss, dog- Cross,
the property and friend of C. Chap Richard
man, who was assassinated on the 23d -July.
Cross was pupped in Mai-ch, 1859, and living
from puppyhood, t,hrough the succeeding
years to the unfortunate date above,:he' -was
8 years and 4-months old. Passing through
the eventful period of secession and conse,
quent war, his character, though otherwise
exemplary, took awarlike turn, which was
shown more particularly to the enemies of
his master's household. Corning from good
stock ana falling early into good hands, much
was expected of igim, which in a large de%
gree was realized. His reputation was not
confied to the limits of his native town, for
he-was made the subject of honorable' notice,
in a communication to this paper from the
famed city of New Orie'ans, not long since,
in which he was compared hfatteringly supe%
ror to the dogs of that city. Like other
dogs he had four legs, two before and two
behind, a tall of fair proportions, the usual
copleentof ears, and a mouth full of
teeth, long and -sharp, and a body of large
size and strength. His love of beef was only
exceeded by his aversion to boys and gentles
men of African descent. His master's chick,
en roosts and premises were never intruded
upon, but always held as sacred precincts,
while under the watceful guardian,ship of
Cross. Little children's mothers and little
girls, always crossed the streets when Cross
was abont, and with palpitating hearts has
tened from the neighborhood. Delighted
with these splendid qualities, his master's
love kept increasing with his years, while
his pockets grew lighter from the amounts
spent with the beef mian. To his master "he
was ever gentle and kind," and while "his
tail stood out behind," it always wagged
with affection; but now he is a dead dog,
his bark is hushed, the chicken roost has no
sentinel, his tail can wag no more, nor can
the call of "beef, Cross" arouse him; no
terror now at the corner, old wives, maids,
young mothers and little children have no
more dread; cats, boys and freedmen prowl
about with impunity, because the place that
knew Cross knows him no more, Alas, alas,
great is the grief of his friend and master,
and tears are shed over his untimely and
cruel murder. It is gratifying to know that
he was cared for to the end and buried in a
three foot hole, in the family collard bed,
wraped in cotton. His memory will be
fresh while collards last, and each cabbage
'head taken from that bed will be seasoned
with thoughts of Cross, and the tears which
fall will freshen the stalk and cause it to byd
and grow afresh. Green grow the colIgrds
which mark the resting place of Cross.

An Appeal to my Friends-Wil they aid me?
According to the accounts of the office, while I
was Postmaster, there was due to the Post-office
Department, at Washington city, the sum of
one thousand and ninety-four $1094.00 dollars,
when mail communication was stopped with the
State by the United States Government on the
1st of June, 1861. The Confederate States Gov
ernment took possession of the mail arrange
ments and post-offices in this State at that time,
and ordered 'me to pay over to the Post-office
Department of the Confederate States,the money
on hand in the Post-office, at Newberry,amount
ing to three hundred and flfty-four [354.00] dol
lars. And to return the postage stamps and
stamped envelopes on hand in this office.
amounting to seven hundred and- forty-two
742.00j dollars, to the Post-office Department at
Washington City. I can prove by responsible
and respectable, persons, that I sent from the
post-oflee at this place-and that evidence I sent
by affidavi* to Washington this spring-the
postage stamps and stamped envelopes, as above
stated, to the Post-office Department at Wash
ington City, but the Auditor at Washington
City, statee,iu his communication to me,f,May
24, 1866,'that the facts stated by me to *hemn,
"do not presenft a case in which.,by law a credit
can be given" me.. The money in the office at
the time, 1861, three hundred and fifty-four
--854.C-dollars, I paid over to the P. 0. Dept
of the Confederate States, as directed above.'
Under' these .circumst?ces I am called upon
fortriwith to pay the whole. of the said sum of
one thousand and ninety-four-1094--dollars,
and amu.nable to do so. It will take all my pro
perty to pay-it. and then the demand will not be
liquidated. 1 therefore mnake this appeal to my
friends, and solicit them-to aid me as far as they
may belable andlare willing, 'to settle up the de.
mand'of the United States .against me as Post
master at this place, as is above set forth. 'I acted
in good faith, and obey'ed the instractions I had
from the powers in authority over the State.
Any assistance rendered me in this matter, will
not only-be~ thankfafly'received, but most grate.
fully remiembered. .S. P. KINARD.
