GOV. B. GRATZ BROWN,
Good words from Grats Brown: "We

The DHalmgto Agialtural and Xehani
Mr. Edward McIntosh, President, and
W. E. James, Esq., Secretary and Treas
urer, have issued their annual Premium
List for the second Annual Fair, to be
held at Darlington, C. H., commencing
Oct. $0, and closing 1st Nor., 1872. The
Company offiers over six hundred dollars
in the way of Premiums. The Darling
ton people have organized their Society
as a joint stock Company, the citizens
generally throughout the County are
stockholders, which places the Company
on a sure footing. In Abbeville and
Barnwell are two flourishing Societies,
in which the citizens of their respective
Counties interest themselves; thus an
nually they are drawn together with
samples of the various field crops and
animals for competition; the artisan the
result of his genius; the garden, the
household, needle and fancy work, paint
:ng, &c., of our fair country-women, at
test also that they too are always present
to add interest to eccasions so important
to the welfare of our country. We feel
sad indeed when in Newberry no sucb
organization exists-a section once noted
for its flourishing Agricultural Society,
and also "r the intelligence of her citi
zens. Should she be behind her sister
Coonties in an enterprise so important
to the prosperity of our people?

We tranfer to our columns from the
Charleston Courier the following notice
of the death of this estimable gentleman.
Captain McIntosh was the brother of
our respected fellow citizen, Dr. James
McIntosh. Our community sympathizes
with him in his berexvement:
The Eastern section of our State has
sustained a loss, by the death of this
most estimable gentleman, which will be
felt fr years tocome, by all those who
know and appreciated him. lHe has left
behind him foot prints on the sands of
time, which cannot easily he obliterated,
and which the rising generation may
follow with credit to themselves.
Capt. Mcintosh prepared himself for
the duties of life by a thorough course of
study in the South Carolina College,
where he graduated with distinction in
1859, taking the first appointment in
his class He at once turned his atten
tion to agriculture, but was allowed only
one year's devotion to his profession ere
the State summoned him to aid her in
the great war for Constitutional Co,
ernent. Nobly did he respon.d, and
nobly did he serve her throughout the
struggle. It was his privilege to be of
the Army of Northern Virginia, and he
proved himself worthy of that distinc
tion. Since the war he has given his
chief attentii,n and ntiring energy to
planting, and to the development of the
material interests of the State. lie wa
one of the ounders of the Pomological
and Farmer's Club, of Society Bill, a
leading spirit in the Darlington Agri
cultural Club, and an active member of
the Executive Committee of the South
Carolina Agricultural and Mechanical
Society. More recently be organifed the
Agricultural and Mechanical S->ciety of
Darlington as a Joint Stock Company,
and was its President at the time of his
Notwithstanding his thorough iden
tification with the farming interests, he
did not fail to dischanrge his duty to the
Church or the State-in fact duty was
his guiding star. He fully realized the
fact that the "the duties of life are rwore
than life," and exemplified it through
out his brief career.
"ewas a man, take ihim for all in all,
We shall not look upon his life again."
Th Boo Jubilee.
The great International Peace Jubilee,
now being held in Boston, is one of the
greatest performances in the musical
line that har ever taken place in this
country, and is proving a great success.
Some of the most celebrated mnusicians
andi aingers in the wo,rld are connected
wtith it. Amoeng them is Strauss, the
celebrated German Composer, Ma-lam
Leutner, Madaum Goddard, Madam Ru
de,dorff, Franz Abt, and many others of
The Jubiieo is held in a monster
building called the Coliseum, covering
tivri acres, and capable of holding one
hundred thousand people. The interior
is beautifully decorated with flags,
streamers, and various emblems. Two
acres is set apart exclusively foir the
Orchestra and Choir. There are fifteen
hundred instruments in the Orchestra,
and over fifteen thousand singers in the
choir. Several foreign hands are there.
The Grenadier Band of England, uno
bering seventy-five instruments, under
the leadership of the celebrated God
frey, is said to be one of the Sonest bands
in the world. Also bands from France,
Austria and Germany ; the latter went
into the battle of Gravelotte as an or
ganization. The drum of the .English
Grenadier Band is inscribed with the
names of the battles ini which the reg
iment has takea part, aely, Waterlon,
Conosa Laau t$rn, Penine
lar, Inker man, Schitopo, and the
LL-tti is, "Dieu et mon Dr-m."
The Jubilce is conducted by Mr. Gil
muore, of Bustin. One very curious add
novel featuse of it i- a cannon chorus,
=omposed of several large cannon, which,
with the fiftein hundred instruments,
and the fifteen thousand choir, must
make lively musical times for old Bos
ton, and we would think extremely dam
kging to weak nerves.
Last Wednesday night, a Grand Inter
national Ball was given in the Coliseum;
music by the combined binds of Eng.
land, France, Austria, Germany, and the
United State, all under the direction of
the great waltz composer, Strauss.
The Jubilee commenced June 17th,
and is to be continued until after the
Ca. Amen and the Orange.
This gentleman spoke freely and flu.
ently Monday morning last, in Mayes &
Martin's Hall, to a large audience of gen
tlemen. Mr. Aiken began by telling the
gentlemen of the agricultural cowiuni
ty t!.t they were not as well informed
as they might or should be, in their pur
suit. That they should read more earn
estly, investigate, experiment and make
a practical digest of their expeiences.
That the agricultural art, or the science
of agriculture, is both noble and enno
bling, when treated with its entitled re
spect. That the tiller of the soil should
be conversant with all the principles,
forces and collateral agencies which build
up the science in all its metes and bounds.
That those who are willful laggards must
reap the dead fruits of their thriftless
ness. To this end he forcibly urged the
claims of agricultural papers, and paid a
deserved tribute to the Rural Carolinian.
Mr. Aiken's remarks about sheep rais
ing were as good as gold, and should be
heeded right now. The advantages of
the swivel plow were poorayed and
doubtless highly appreciated. The fool
ish prejudices against book farming or
progressive intelligence, rather, were
One of the best ideas advanced by Mr.
Aiken, and one frequently urged, was
that the farm or plantation should be
self-sustaining, which would make the
cotton supply a surplus of wealth.
Should thi* practical principle obtain
among our people we are persuaded there
would be little use for ri)g!: -;r granges
either in the commercial or agricultural
world, other than those which foster a
community of honorable interests, in all
the professions. Cotton is the most potent
agent in the world's highway of traffic,
and the producer could, with concert of
action, command the markets of the
With reference to the Grange, which
is of Welsh origin representing a farm,
Mr. Aiken states that nine males and
four females constitute a Grange; that
tho State Grange is composed of not less
than nine local Granges, and its officers
taken from the masters of the local
Granges, and so on with the National
Grange, which has its head at Washing
In a deserved tribute to women, Mr.
Aiken told very clearly why women
should be members.
From Mr. Aiken's remarks we deduce
that the grange is simply for the moral,
social, pecuniary and agricultural in
provement of the people, then why is ii
a secret society ? Of course, as be cierr
ly stated, there is more or less secrecy
in all the vocations and relations of life.
Between families even of the most cor
dial social intimacy, there is no divul
gpnce of the sacred relations of the inner
sanctuary, bat these things are not re
ferred to. All societies, sacred and pro.
fane, have more or less priYacy of course.
The church holds its private meetings in
which the outside world is not directly
interested, and yet the church makes no
mention of its secresy. No man nor cor
poration should carry his heart upon his
sleeve for daws to peck at, &c. Boards
of Trade and Ghamnbers of Commserce,
&c,are not rcally secret societies, and
yet outsiders have no right to intrude.
We shall refer to this matter again.
A BEAUMI, SIMU..-Ina the course
of his remnarks made at Frascati, n.ear Mo
bile, on Tuesday evening, before the
guests of the "Ladies' Monumental Me
mnorial Association," Father Ryan said,
pointing to a bank of heavy clouds just
rising in thse west and obscuring then
setting sun, and amnong which a vivid
lighatming was incsantly playing:
"As yon sun goes down behind a dark
cloud, so went down the hopes of those
en.gaged in the unequal struggle fors
Scuthern liberty; as you now see the
lightn.ings flashing and tlaz.ing athwart
the face of that cloud, so leaped the
bolts of hate and persecution. But behind
that clou' the stars are still shining, just
as the star of ;ope is still lighting up then
hearts of our people; and as the sun will
rise again on the morrow, so shall even
tually rise up inl all its splendor the now
down-trodden and partially obscured
cause of right and justice."
A TIMErs PREzcAuvo.-The Common
Council of Chicago have passed a perenmp
tory resolution heading off the prospec
tive exploder of guns, toucher-off of
squibs, and general flinger of fire-crack
ers on the 4th of July. The action of the
Chicago Council might well be adopted
by the City Council of Columbia, as far
as our principal thoroughfare Is concern
ed, at least. The reckless manner in
which pistols and crackers itt.fired on
the 4th of July renders it dangerous to
promenade Maina street.
We agree with the Phcenix. The pre.
caution is timely, and should be adopted
in every community.
Tar Fas -rO INFoaens.-Inforn'5r2
fees are to be abolished after the 1st of
August next, so far as internal revenue
is concerned. The commissioner will
have a fund for disbarsement among
such officers as may deserve special re
ward. This action will have the effect
of reducing the vigilanacecof the detectives
to a miiiuma.stantdard.

All About the Edgefield Arreits.
NEWBERMY G. H., S. C., June 24, '7.
To the Editor of the Daily Union:
Deputy United States Marshal James
Maloney brought here this moruing and
confined in jail one Tol. Perry, arrested,
charged with having violated the enforce
ment act. Tol. Berry, Daniel 3. Ward
and John Barre, (the latter two merch
ants of this place,) were at the house of
Mr. Thomas Blease, in Edgefield county,
about twenty miles from this town, lying
rmt as officer Maloney has been wanting
to see them for some time; they all being
accused of having been very active
members of the Ku Klux Klan of this
county. Marshal Maloney received in
formation Sunday afternoon that these
three men with others were going to be
at or near the store of Thomas Blease
that night. Summoning two colored
men to go with him as guides and as
sistants, Maloney started that afternoon
and reached Blease's at about dark. On
riding up to the gate they discovered the
men, Ward, Perry and Barre,sitting with
Mr. Blease, out on the front piazza. The
two parties espied each other about the
same time, and there was a simultaneous
rush-Ward, Harre and Perry out the
back-door, Maloney and his %men after
them. Ward was ahead and after getting
into the back-yard turned and fired at
Maloney; some one of Maloney's party
returned the fire, and John Barre fell,
wounded in the thigh. Meantime Maloney
gto hold of Perry and at once secured his
weapons and turned him over to his
assistants. Having secured the two they
had captured, they made a further search
for Ward, tut the darkness of the night
and denseness of the woods rendered it
impossible to find him. They brought
Perry along mith them to jail, and left
Barre at Mr. Blease's house For a few
days until the condition of hi: wound
wiil adrit of his being moved to town,
Mr. Blease standing security for his sai
keeping until that time. W.
DEPUTY MARSHALL MALONFT informed
us that at noon of the day of the occurrence
Sundamy) he was told that Mcssrs.
Ward and Perry would be at Mr. Blease's
that night, and that he took three men with
him to make the arrest. Twenty miles from
town they stopped and secured their horses,
and went to Mr. B.'s store, but found no one.
Then went to the dwelling-after supper; the
night was clear; saw persons seated on the
piazza; sent men around to the rear with in
structions to shoot any escaping after being
halted. That Mr. Ward was the first who
ran, firing his pistol at the party as soon as
be left the door, whereupon some of his men
returned the fire, with the result of shooting
Mr. Birre, who was also making his escape.
Mr. Maloney says that the instruction to
dire upon any one escaping after being hal
ted, was given in a load voice, so that those
in the house might hear and be deterred
from escaping. Also, that he had given
private and positive counsel to the men not
to fire upon any one unless fired upon; and
that the wounding of Mr. B. was purely ac
cidental; that he was not looked for, nor
was he expected at the house.
Riot, Assalt and Attempt to Eill-Sick
Chamber of a Dying Wom.a Disregarded,
&c.-Near Moese's N Roads, Edgefield
Couty, 8. C
Massus. EDmrons: On Sanday, 23d June,
1872, (I am thus particular in giving day,
date and year, bane I expect to watch the
end of this matter.) If the Presiden t of the
United States, Senators, Congressmen, Gov
ernors of States, Legislators, Marshals, and
all others in offBee, permit these things to
pass without rebuke, they deserve to have
their names written In infamy en the same
roll with the assassins that perpetrated the
deed. One James Maloney, who is reputed
to be Assistant U. S. Marshal, accompanied
by Peter Simmons, (A BLACK "NIGGER"'),
Oscar Cannon, copper colored, (a pen itentia
my b!rd,) and Willis Johnson, ("yallow nig
ger,") went to my store at the Cross Roads
and ordered a lad, Master Wells, who slept
in the store with my son, a fourteen year old
boy, into the store, stating that he should
shut himself in, and if he came out that the
guard that he i Maloney) was going to place
around the house would shoot him. Mr.
Smith, who was paying a visit to Wells, was
then rudely assaulted, and ordered to march
to my dwelling house (about a half mile from
the store, each of the cowardly fellows sin
gle filing behind him as close as they could
walk, (lock step.) Smith's life was threat
ened, and he assured that if he made any
noise whatev.er that he would be shot. Abort
half way between the store and dwelling
(my: ton going from supper to the store,
where he an Master Wells slep:) -was
noenced upr*: by two "Nig ntigrers," who
held his arms behind him whils: Ma'loney
stood in front of him with a pistol presented
to his br-east, swearing that he intended to
shoot him throggh, after he kept the bey in
th is positiorn until the cowardly, tormenting
evii spirit was sati-fied, they tarned hin'
loose, telling him to keep in the patht to the
store; that if he turned to the right or ieft
lhe would be shot biy men stationed in: the'
wooda for tLe purposc. The file bing r-ar
ranged as before, with Smith being forced to
lead, the night being darle, and the foliage
of tihe oaks lbeing dense, they camne in to my
yard near the piazza, where Mr. John J.
Barre, Mr. D. 3i. Ward, Mr. T. T. Perry and
myself were sitting, (my wife was in her
room at the point of death, having been
quite ill for some time,) and they shouted to'
our surprise, shoot every damned ralsa that
comes out of the house. Shoot, shoot, I did
not know whast it meant. Robbers, Lowry's
band, everything flitted across n:y brai-u.
The shouting. shooting. all, all, what does
this mean? I advaned to m'eet them at the
steps, Perry was with me, Barre and Ward
jumped into the yard; Barre received a se
i-ere wound; several attempts were made to
shoot Ward but failed. The alarm to my
wife was so sudden, and when Barre said, 'I
amt shot," she thought it was the voice of
our eldest son, and became so frightened that
her recovery is now hopeless. As soon as I
could, I a.scertai2led what was the matter.
Maloney said that he had a warrant for
Ward whom he had failed to arrest. What
Ward was charged with he did not make
known. Said he hiad a warrant for Perry,
Perry said, "If you have I am ready to go
with you." Bat he, Maloney, apologized to
Esag; "hse was very sorry that he got

A mnagnificent dinner was spread in a beauti-.
ful grove, neat the house, of which all par,
took withs apprciation. We approve of
temperate pleasures; they do us good by~
driving us for a timte away from work and
dull care, and by making us forget the anx

Mu. Ca'lDwFtL's LECTURE.-The third
lecture of the course,by J. F, J. Caldwell,Esq,
was read last Thursday night. It was a
elaborote argument, and began with a run
ninig summary o1 v:oman's capabIlities either
of living an epic or pursuing a path of infa
ey. Thle tlienge, as our readers are aware, I
was "T he Legal Satus of Womag izn Soutl, L
Carolina," and the disasslon of the subjeot
which occasionally r.parkled wi:h humor,
gave evidence of ripe scholarship. We most

about woman's rights-so called, the home

SiGms OF iaPovBEET.-Newberry has I
ow a spacious hall with comfortable seats
or three to five hundred persons. Lectures
Lave recently been delivered therein by three

LCademy, and more are to follow. Those I
Iready delivered have afforded a great deal
'f pleasure and instruction to all who have

The lectures already delivered have been
f no ordinary character, and it should be a
ource of pride to every citizen of Newberry
hat they have amorg them gentlemen so
tell qualified by education and culture, to
ntme.-et and instruct them.
The next lecture of the course it is under
tood will be delivered by Dr. Mayor, whose
rell known talcnts and accomplishments
hould secure a large audience.

W- MIDSUMMER 3 A L A -
)IES.-The hot solar rays that ripen the
arvests generate many distressing dis
ases. If the liver be at all predisposed to
rregularitie., this is the season in which
>illious attacks may be anticipated. A
reak stomach, too, is weakest in the sum
aer months, and the loss of vitality through
he pores by excessive perspiration is so
reat, that a wholesome tonic, combining
)so the properties of a diffusive stim
lant and gentle exhilarant, is in many
as,.s necessary to health, and under no
ircumstances should be dispensed with by
ickly and debilitated. Of all the prepara.
ions intended thus to refresh, sustain, and
ortify the human frame, there is none that
viil compare with Hostetter's Celebrated
komach Bitters. They have been weighed
a "he balance of experience and not found
ranting; have been recommended from

i a beverage, and in spite of interested
pposition from innumerable quarters,

omplaints of the stomach, the liver, the

very rpecies of intermittent or remittent

r!CLs, place the most Implic-t confidence

se- STARVATION IN THE
[IDST OF PLENTY.-A living man is con
nually exerting mechanical force and
iving off heat; and in proportion he is
otinually und-rgoing a loss of weiht
lat is to say a loss of substance. This
fe-long production of heat and of me
hanical force is not stispended even during
leep. Not to go farther, sleep does not
iterrrupt respiration-a clearly 'mechau
-a! function. As to the generation of
eat it is unnecessary to insist. It is plain
hat this ceaseless i?nifesting of vital force
rith its accompanying and strictly propor
ioned wasto could not continue forever.
'he taan would dwindle to nothing. But
ang before the effects of this graduel dimni
tion beconme appparent, they are felt in
he form of the two in'nerious sensations
unger and thirst. To etill these eravings,
o restore the lost weight, and to put the
tan in a position still to keep on losing
reight (as the price of keeping on produ
ing heat and mnechnical foree) it is ne
essary that he should be supplied v:ith
bree things-air, water and food. Now
imply receiving food into the stomach is
ot truly receiving food into the systema.
strtctly speaking, food lying in the stomn
ch is as truly without and not within the
>ody, as is food held in the hollow of the
hosed hand. Only when it has been
horoughly digested and assimilated can it
Le said that it is really received into the
ystem. But how seldom is the organism
iia position thoroughly to assimilate muffi
jent food! What are the consequences?
~he outcome exceeds the income and the
odily strength fails because the system can
0 longer keep up the mutually balancing
raste and renovation. Here it is that a
olsie stimulant (such as Dr. Fisch's Bitters)
roves so beneficial-it might almost be
aid, so indispensable.
