Terrible Ku Klux Outrage.
So general did we think was the desire
for peace since the election, and more
particularly now that the man of peace,
whose only cry has been the ever and
oft repeated one-"let us have peace,"
has been successful, that we earnestly
hoped the unhappy bands of bushwhack
ers and.Ku Klux-ers were laid, and num
bered with the things of the past. The
following record however shows the con
trary to be the case, and that another
horrible outrage has been committed.
Our informant is a reliable colored man,
who heard the particulars, from a mem
ber of the "loyal league," who got his
information from a fellow who lost a
cousin in the late war.
It seemed that a Mr. Carpet-Bagger
was attacked in his own house by 1,632
Ku Kluxes, armed with double-barreled
bowie-knives. They slaughter ed and ate
nineteen of Mr. Bagger's children before
his eyes, and compelled Mrs. Bagger to
cut her own head'off, and hang it on a
hook in the cellar. She was then order
ed to keep still upon pain of instant
death. She happened to sneeze, and
the leader of the dastardly machine set
up and run Mrs. Bagger through. It's
very doubtful if she recovers. Mr. Bag
ger was then forced to swallow four
tons of gunpowder and a handful of nitro
glycerine.. He was next placed on live
coals until an explosion took place,
which subjected Mr. Bagger to such in
tense pain as to almost deprive him of
reason. The sends then shot him full
of holes, made him hurrah for Jefferson
Davis and Horace Greely, and finally
inoculated him with the small pox, and
soaked him with strong lye. He was
threatened with instant death if he re
vealed the names of the perpetrators of
this outrage, all of whom are neighbors
of Mr. Bagger, and who bate him because
Mr. B. was a loyal sutler and cotton
speculator during the war and now lives
on a confiscated plantation, with enoueh
niggers to elect him to the T":gislature.
It is feared that Mr. Bagger has sustained

able to appear at a witness at the mili

gin house onl the plantation of M. Rogers,

bags of cotton belonging to Mr. Ferguson,

barn of Mr. James Wideman, with corn,
fodder, and thirty bags of cotton, was
also destroyed by fire. On the same
night the woods upon the Little Mountain
were fired. Fortunately no other des

DEAR HERALD :-Your correspondent
recently left Halcyon Grove bound Char
leston-ward in the ROLE of nurse. The
trip per Railroad might have been mono
tonous, but that a Mr. some one,-can
not recall his name,-who, having no
thing else to do, beguiled the closing
hours of the day and the vigils of the
night by a recital of matters historic, bio
graphic, philosophic, &c.; and gave me
travels and trial and ttiumph, by land
and by sea, with most remarkable ele
gance of diction, perspicuity and terse
ness. le was a venerable personage,
and for aught I know may have been the
wandering Jew. Had I not been some
that familiar with a moiety of the inci
dents, figures and tropes under review,
I would have taken him for a veritable
Baron Munchausen ; but he was no less
honest than learned, and as urbane in
manner as he was brilliant in speech. I
could only sit and wonder when and hov
he had gathered in such an universe of
thought, as I drank in his rich and
rounded sentences, replete in beauty,
profound in wisdom, and never wanting
in the sweetest charity. le was most
truly a cosmopolite. Grandly familiar
with the vulgate; lie also explored the
fields of celtic and latin lore, and ran
through modern authorship with an
evenness as remarkable as it were fleet;
pointed me to the lights and shadows of
Ecce Homo, as I had never seen them
dwelt upon materialism and the infidelic
tendencies of the age-the revolutions of
Church, State and society-and out of
the seething cauldron of American and
European Doiies, showed me the horns,
" the hoof and the tail of the demon of dis
sension,which make up the fearful imbrog
lio ; and to the mighty rushing together
of the IDES of March and Noveniber,
which have piled for us the agonies of
Pelion upon Ossa, until very nihilism al
most prevails. Finally taking my men

and pollox, the pleiades and the hiades,
along the golden stair-case leading .to
good old Jupiter, and after revolving and
careering and traversing through im
mensity, he descended to terra firma via
the gloaming corridors of the east, just
as the grey of morning heralded our ad
vent into the ultima thule of my dreams;
and at 7 1 bad reached my objective
point for the moment, the goodly Pavil
ion,-where, in a warm and, comfortable
c'hamber, your editor-NURsE deposited
five little beads upon their soft and wel
come pillow. .
The weather since I have been here
was charming in the extreme till yester
day, and under its inspiring infiuencer,
I have discovered a fresh well of delight,
in introducing a motherless brood to the
sights and sounds of what was once the
queen city and its environs. They came
hither to escape tihose sad chills, by
drinking in the salt air. I wonld be un
grateful indeed did I not feel proud and
happy oecause of the very kind and dis
int rested treatment my little charg& re
ceived, -at the very threshold, at the
hands of the tender hearted and motherly
I oStess of the Pavilion Hotel. One
of the most coinfor'table chambers
in the house, opening'upon a spa'ious ye
randat, was given them, from which much
of the present beauty, fashion and busi
ness, as well as the grotesque, and ludic
rous of the.city was seen. A moon-li;ht
night upon thei battery, with its prome
nade walks, the rippling waves of the il
lumed b>ay, a-nd the beautiful confluence
ot' the Ashley and Cooper rivers, fa
ship at anchor, the island with its peariy
beech*, the murmuring -tides, frowning
Sumter, the market with its quizzical
venders of fish, flesh and fowl, &c, a ride
in the natty little street cars, the sweet
chimes of ola St. Michael, the city park
wit'i its-tame deer, citadel square with
the soldiery at dress parade, half-tuxn
battery, the beautiful and mellow vesp~er
services of the Cathedral Church, reli
gious exercises in the orphans' chapel,
and a ride over the shell road to Magno
lia Cemetery with its weird old pines and
oaks, draped with pendant moss, and
ever singing persive requiems, o'er the
dead. Magnolia, with its serpentine
walks, miniature lakes and islands, chapel
and vaults, beautiful shrubbery, and the
the long lines of Gonfederate and Federal
dead, and the thousand and one .bappy
designs whiich affection has .placed over
the remains of departed loved ones. All
of these have wondering little eyes looked
upon and admired. Pardon me for a re
citid of some of my duties in the com
bined roles of cicerone and nurse, for
-with the acknowledgement that friends
have been truly kind, and extended cour
t sies unnumFe- ed, I shall leave the
little sleepers and return to some of the
incidents of the day.
Among the many gentlemen, I have
been pleased to meet with here from
good old Newberry and the regions be

Agent of the Baptist State Convention,
making a tour of the State on mission
work. He was in fine health, and I
learned from him that he had met with
courteous treatment and success gener
ally. The benevolent citizens, of New
ber'ry, proverbial for their good works,
need only be told that he is on duty.
Their response is sure to follow. Mr.
Paxton, formptly of the Charleston
Evening News,, now of the Sumter
Watchman, wvas also here, as genial and
young looking as he was 10 years ago.
He gave me the light of his countenance

The annual communication of the
Grand Lodge, A. F. M. of South Caroli

Tuesday, and closed after a harmonious

sembled in Charleston.
The S. C. Conference has lost another
of its able ministers-Rev. F. A. Mood,
who has accepted the Presidency of
Soule University, Texas. His late charge
was Trinity Church, in this city.
Had you been here recently you could
have witnessed the interesting ceremony
of installing a rabbi-Rev. Chumaceiro,
at the Synagogue. h1ebe services were
in Hebrew and English, and very inter
esting. How sublime the grand old He
brew tongue, when uttered by a fluent
and an impassioned speaker. It is just
such an one bs Jehovah would select in
speaking to the children of men.
The banana, the orange and the sweet
lemon grow here, and from the garden
of a friend I have plucked several of the
latter for you.
As an incident of the late election, I
saw a negro radical procession, which
for all the "fantastic tricks before high
heaven," and wild jargon of maudlin
voices, could not be beat. It was com
posed of men, women and children, in
which, clubs, sticks, brooms, &c., were
displayed. A terrible rabble. The wo
men danced, and the men shouted, and
the urchins chimed in-"wboraw for de
blackberry 1boys." Well, this is the
moral which adorns the fate of manhood
suffrage. One of. the ludicrous scenes
was the game.cock of -be News, which
crowed too early in the morning, and
got its neck craced for its audacity,
and was then suspended to Ia. pole, and
paraded through theftreets.

The moon climbs up in silvery state,
In royal splendors.bound in fate,
While stars bedeck the azure plain,

And though alone I'll watch and wait,
And see if all's eternal fate.

I'll ask those winds, so calm and tree,
Go kiss sweet Liszie's hand for me.

Ye happy winds go seich and see,
And bring a sweet good-night to me.

Through boundless space this message bear
Tell her that in the morn I pray
That God may keep her through the day.
Bnt now 'tis night and lo, she sleep.,
But tell her that her lover weeps,
And prays, that through this night forlorn,
The Lord may keep her till the morn,
My lone heart now shall turn to rest,
Trusting in God to yet be blest;
But once again I'll whisper clear,
Good night, sweet one, though none can hear.
A curious letter of Napoleon I to the
Empress Marie Louise is published in the
twenty-fifth volume of his "Correspon

chere ami : 1I have received a letter by
which you inform me that you have re

My desire is that you do not receive any
one, whoever they may be, while in bed.
That is only allowed to those who have
passed their thirtieth year."

great conflict 672 guns on the side of the

PEACE BREAKERS.-Our out-door per
ambulator, reports the arrest of peace
officer, Tom Sullivan, right hand sup.
porter of Constable Hubbard, for breach
of peace, in molesting colored citizens,
(and shooting, if we remember report
correctly,) on Saturday last. Aforesaid
"peaceable" man is under arrest for this
contempt of the peace,.order and dignity
of our town and-beloved State, so-called
by Gov. Scott.

Character of offence in these two cases,

We return thanks to our street peram

will hunt up and report all future cases
promptly. Let us have peace.
ARREST OF CONSTABLE HARRIS.-Messrs.
R. V. Gist and J. W. Caldwell, citi
zens of Newberry, two quiet and re
spectable gentlemen, it will be remem
bered were arrested by W. P. Harrisdnd
two United States soldiers, about the
time of the killing of Lee Nance. Both
arrests were made under aggravating
circumstances, and as to be shown, with
out rightful authority, or just grounds.
Mr. Gist at his home, and Mr. Caldwell
on the highway, the latter being fired
upon. After unwarranted confinement,
they were conveyed to Columbia, and
subsequently bailed. On Wednesday
last the 18th, these gentlemen each niade
full and positive affidavits before Esquire
Peterson, of false arrest and imprison
ment at the hands of Harris, upon which
he was arrested and committed to prison
to await a hearing. The biter sometimes
gets bit, as is now shown.
PLANcHETTE.-Much interest has late
ly been taken in the little contrivance,
bearing the name of Planchette. It is
somewhat on the order of spirit medi
urns, and as a game, to while away the
long winter evenings, may be indulged
in at small cost. It will tell fortunes,
and for bashful lovers who wish to knew,
and are too timid to ask, the all-impor
tant ques'tion,we commend Planchette. It
is a %igle board about six or eight inches
long and five or six wide, triangular or
heart-shaped, with two legs with rollers
at the rear oz lar-ge end, two~inches in
length, a hole in the front end, through
which n lead pencil is pushed about two
inches, the length of the legs, and Plan
chette is complete. The miodus operandi
is as follows: A piece of white paper is
placed on a table, Planchette on the pa
per, two persn~ place their finger-tips
lightly on the little joker, and keep them
tEiere until it liegins to move upon the
#per.- Then somebody may ask Plan
cheLte a question, and the answer will
be given under the pencil.
We give an example: An engaged
couple are said to~ have amused them
selves asking the following questions
and receiving the annexed replies from
Planchette :-The manipulator being a
young lady, ber first inquiry as a matter
of course was, "Shall I ever get mar
ried ?" "Yes," promptly came from Plan
chette. "W hen?1" "Two years." "To
whom ?" "S---B---." This was
entirely satisfactory, as it included both
the par!i rnresent. "Shall we be hap
py 7" "Perfectlv." Not' followed a
question to whic'h the young 2. desired
a faithful solution, as it appeared to her
the consummation of earthly bliss.
"Shall we have children ?" "Yes." "How
many ?" Planchette was deliberate,
evincing no haste, desirous of making
no mistake in the tigures, but wrote with
considerable distinctness, "S-e-v-e:n-t,"
when the young lady shoved the instru
menit from her with such force, that it
fell ui on the doQor, and it was divided in
halves by the fall. Whether planchette
intended "seventeen" or "seventy" was
not determinoed, and we presume time
alone can discover the entire answer.

NEW GROCERYT SToRE.-MesSr-s. Pay

stock of Groceries at the store room last

flaming advertisement announcing their
readiness to supply any and all demands.
DIRECT FROM NoRFo.K.-At the close

in quarts, half and whole gallons. And
lovirs of fine bivalves are urged to in

RESORTING TO TRcKS.-Heading an ad
vertisement with, the Circus is coming,
a man found dead, or something else
equally as startling, as some men do for
the purpose of attracting attention, is
neither more nor less than resorting to
tricks, or trying -to catch old birds with
chaff. It is all wrong ; it is best to be
plain and honest, and for instance-to say
that no family should be without one
of W. T. Wright's cooking stoves, Any
pattern required, can be obtain'ed of
Wright, besides all articles in the tin
furnishing line. Look into his establish
ment, and1 be convinced.

We are requested to state that Mr.

leave for New York on the 8th of Decem
ber. He requests that all orders for
laborers be left with him on Sale-day
SEEIN Is BELIEvING.-Look in at
Lovelace & Wheeler's store, and you
will see an animated sight, from early
morning till night closes the scene. Its
an all day rush there, and why ? Simply -
because they have a large assortment of
goods, % hich they sell at easy prices,
and withal they make it a point to please
every one who goes into their store,
whether to look or to buy. Seeing is
believing. Go there, and no doubt will
IN THE SHELL.-Our friend Lawrence
Marshall, who keeps store over the way, a
(every one knows that, however,) and
who has a stock full of variety and ex
cellence, is a waggish fellow. For a time'
back, he has served the community with
the general favorite and,delicious bivalve
-oyster, open, and ready to swallow.
They have been swallowed to a great ex
tent, and for one reason, that being open,
there was nothing to do but to buy and
eat. Lawrence has determined to change
the programme, he says that it being
enjoined to eat bread by sweat of brow,
his oysters on Wednesday will be in - the
shell, and the man who eats, will have to
open. There being no remedy then, we
will take oysters to-day on the shell, for
so says Marshall.
P. S.-And further says the same in
dividual, a fine lot of "illigant praties,''
of the Irish persuasion has just been re
ceived,. to: be sold immediately. Call I
soon if you want any, for they are beau- I
ties. e c
A FINE TREAT.-Not a week but some
favot is kindly sent, and gratefully no
ticedr True, sometimes it is a radish,
as was the case last week, which was
only fit to look at, and hardly for that,
as a mere glance at it was sufficient to
produce severe indigestion. But its not
always an indigestible monstrcsity, as
we will prove. With profound satisfac
tion, intense admiration, and lively grat- b
ication, we acknowledge a delicious, r
huge oyster pattie from Mons. Schootair, f
big enough for a funily of twenty hear'y t
eaters, into the which our dear eleven, f
three of the church elect, and six chosen (
friernds, made incursion, and were comn
fortably and happily filled, It was the
handsomest looking piece of pastry our
eyes have beheld, since the last favor
from the same artistic hands. Thanks.
monsieur, may your shadow dever groei i
less, and your pastry ever be as good. d
PRooRSS.-Columbus sailed to the
American coast in a four hundred ton '
ship, and first landed upon the i.sland of
St. Domingo. Last week a vess~el from
St. D)omingo unloaded in New York over
four hundred tons of St. Croix Rtum for ~
P. II. Drake & Co., of that city. This
is but a few weeks' supply of this article
which these gentlemen use in the mann- -
facture of tbe celebrated Plantation Bit
ters. We are infortned by an exchange
that Messrs. Drake & Co., have not ad- (
vcrhised a dollar for a year, but that the
sates of this article continue at the for
mer enormous figure. In 1864, the re- II
ceipts of the Plantation Bitters were t
equal to those of the New York & New
