Deat o Dr. Winimith.
We regret to learn of the death of this
* gentleman, which occurred a few nights
since. Strong hopes had been enter
* ained of his recovery. The Spartan
says the wounds received by him were
Oe'en, one in the side and abdomen,
either of which penetrated the cavity, -
euro in one arm, arid the others in the
legs. Two of the wounds were consid
ered serious. This our readcrs are aware
l the result of the recent outrage in
8partanburg, committed by a party of
disguised and armed nien. It is said
that the party of men told the Doctor
chat they meant him no harm, and only
wished to talk to him, but whether this
s said before or after the shooting is~
sot known. They called him out from
his house, however, and immediately as
be opened his door he commenced Ii. ing

Gat the last feather is added, a great
opirit of unrest takes possession of the
people. A relief is being determinedly
hoeked for. That the present condition

dullest mind-some remedy rimst be
emght for and applied. And this is not
the least of the evils. In applying the
semedy to this, however, other evils
may, and no doubt will, be overcome.
The tax now is seven times greater than
boere the war, when there was more to
pay it with, when the State was pros
perous, and the people contented. This'
is the State tax alone, to which may he

The grand total of which is $,095,O47.
This enormous tax is paid without rep

body or legislators, the majo)rity of whoni

Mr. Meatmimger, in his letter to Gov
