DEAT IN TUE FAMILY OF JUDGE OR.
By a private dispatch received in Colum
bia on Thursday we learn of the death,
at the homestead in Anderson, of Amelia,
a young daughter of Judge Orr, at the
age of twelve year,;.
The Tax Bll.
The tax bill as rep-rted by the con
mittee of Ways and Mea-is, is as fillows: C
Five mills for the expenses of the bscal
year, commencing November, 1S72;
two mills for schools ; fve mils for ae
ficiencies, and three mills for county t
Judge Orr Ministe to Russia.
T:'egrap!& dispatches state that Judge
Orr has been nominated by the Presi
dent as Minister to Russia, and the N t
Y. Tribune correspon-lent in Washing- i
ton, states that "the appointment by the
President of James L. Orr as Minister of
Russia, was made without the knowledge
of Mr. Orr, he not having been an appli- s
cant for the position."
Reidville Male High School.
We acknowledge receiving a catalogue
of the trustees, teachers and students of
the above scbool, this being the ffteenth
scholastic year. Reidville is in Spartan
burg County, the school being most
pleasantly situated, in a healthy region,
and easy of access. At the close of the
session there were Sfty-two students,
and we are pleased to know that our
young friend, J. L Keitt, delivered an
address on the subject-the "Influence
of Oratory"-at the late exhibition on
Governor ScoUs Valedictory Mesage
Is without any special interest. Its
arguments are not strong. Rather than
this they are in the main fallacious. He
acknowledges the dreadful increase of
the State debt, and of course tries in
geniously to throw the blame and bur
den where they do not belong.
The Carolinian says:
"The people are informed again, too,
of that insignificant amount of $45,
which was found ir, the State Treasury
when His Excellency took charge of af-.
"About this, we will only say that
$45 is more money than has been in the
Treasury to meet any honest demand
for two-thirds of the time during the
past four years."
It would be gratifying to state that
$45 are there now.
This body pretty generally appears to
be impressed with the necessity of re
forim in public affairs and retrenchment
in expenses, and very many bills and
resolutions have already been introduccd
looking to these greatly desired ends.
And on all sides the press of the State is
giving its meeds of p'raise and encour
agemnent of the signs of prom ise for the
tature. Whatever may have been the
desire for a different issue of the general
election, and the hope of another comn
plexion in the General Assembly, no ex
pressi'ons of disappointment are hear d,
nor complaints uttered, but rather the
reverse, and for the reason that the par
ty in power, or rather in office, nearly
all of them seem to be actuated by a
strong desire to amend the wretched,
ruinous legislation and rascality of the
past ; and true to the best interests c-f
the State and people, the opponents, so
called, have laid aside every other feel
ing in the hope or promise of amend
ment. And it could not be otherwise,
and will be, while the administration of
affairs are conducted with honesty r.nd
justice, bitter and vengeful republicans
to the contrary notwitLhstanding.
Among the noticeable measures pro
posed, is one to reduce fees "of county
Treamnrers; to abohmsh olfice of Audi
tors, and devolve the duty on the Treas
urers ; to repeal the Act to establish an
armed force ; to amend the code of pro
cedua ; to prevent County Commissioners
being interested in contracts ; to repeal
the licence law, already reported back
from committee for recommendation
that it do pass ; to repeal an Act enti
tIed "An Act to relieve the State of
South Carolina of all liability for its
gnaranty of the bonds of the Blue Ridge
Rtailroad Company," etc., etc.
Governor Moses' Irsugural
Was delivered before the tmembers of*
the Senate and IIouse on the third in-I
stant. The Gov. devotes the greater
part of his message to a revie'y of the
late unfortunate condition of affairs in
the State, and generally throws the bur
den of their existence upon the tax pay
ers; compliments the retiring 'Covernor
for his ''successful administration," and
eulogizes Mr. Greeley, which latter we
hope he feels, heartily.
The Governor says :
"While I shall not forget th.at, as a(
candidate, f represented in my person
the Union Re-publican party, whose ben
eticent principles are expressed in the<
doctrine of equal rights and exact jus
tice to all men-now incorporated in ther
funda:nentai law of the State' and nation
-and while, under any and all circum- t
stances, my duty of devotion and fideli-t
ty to my party shall be ever present to1
mymind, I tru-t that I many always re r
member that, as the Gi~ef Magistrate of
th-- State, I represe~nt all the people of
M,uth Cazro'lina,. and that the lines whic-h
limit may ze-l for their interest must, in I
honor, be co-extensive with her boun-<

presence of the assemblled la.v-maker, oft

my best efforts to insure that, during I
o r administration, "the Commonwealth
shall suffer no detriment."

Re-presentatives, let us rededier.te our

To those who deemed it proper to as
ail me, during the canvass, with unpar
lieled acerbity, I would say, ,in kindly
pirit, that the obloquy of their assaults
as been met and answered at the ballot
ox, and I do not desire to revive the
-ecollection of their defeat, save by prov
ng in my pablic conduct that their re
roaches were undeserved."
We do not like the general tone of the
xovernor's inaugural. The use of the
;ord rededicate is unfortunate. We do
ope that the Governor and his legisla
ure will "dedicate" their powers, as we
re inclined to think they desire, to a
ood policy, for they stand with "the
atb of office in all its solemn sanctity"
'resh upon the Governor's lips.
We shall at all times be more than
leased to give Gov. Moses and his leg
slature a full measure of praise for all
the good they do in behalf of our bur
ened and distressed Commonwealth.
Further Particulars of the Awassination of
John ,. Barre.
Since our last issue Mr. Mathias Barre,
atber of the lamented John J. Barre,
aas received a letter giving additional
particulars of the bloody tragedy, which
so recently occurred in Florida, and
hich has bereft him of a tenderly be
oved and loving son. The letter is
written by the father of James Birre, al
ready named as the other victim, and at
hose store the assassination it appears
ook place, and not, as stated, on the
aighway, arid is as near being a cor
rect statement of the distressing occur
ence as can be known. We make the
rollowing extract from it:
"It seems there was no one in the store
tt the time but your son and my son,
-hen, on bearing a g'un fired off at the
oor, Cousin John stepped to the door
nd was immediately sho't, my son im
rediately stepped to his assiiaance and
as also shot ; upon this, Mr. HTart ran
n to their assistance, and was shot in
the shoulder. Mr. Perry ar.d Mr. Far
al both ran in and no shot at. The
urderers, (five of them.) then took to
:he woods. It wams nothing more nor
ess than a cold-blooded ar-sassination~ and
nurder. The Jury of Inquest re:urmid
verdict that John J. Barre came to his
ueath from pistol anid gunshot wounds,
inflicted by W. J. Carroi!, C M. Carroll
aid J. D. Wingate. Cousin John was
not in any diflict,ity of iany kii:a with
these men that I could tind out. It
eeed to be the universal opinion of
the people, that the gun fired off first
was a decoy to bring my son or your
son, or some one, to the door, when the
murderers commenced the bad work.
Mly opinion, based upon what others
tAd me, is that the party did not care
ahorn they murdered; they had commit
ted murder only 2+ miles from the resi
dece of my son, only an hour or so be
fore they made the attack on our sons.
"Your son John and my son James,
were wounded Saturday evening, the 23d
inst., at half-past 4 o'clock, Cousin John
died 15 minutes before 12 o'clock Mon
day, my son died at 8 o'clock, Monday
Since the receipt of the letter from
which the above extract is made, we find
a version of the murder in the Charles
ton Daily News, taken from the Like
D~ity Herald. This account says :
"A t Ellisville, a small hamlet near the
outern horder of this county, a terrible
tr gedy was enacted on las~ Saturday
vening. John Barre and Jas. l3arre,
two :en in the vig.ir oif youthful man
ood, were shot down in col:l blood arid
rutaly murilered. The circumstances,
is we have been able to gather themi,
.vere as follows: There had been a feud
ir some time between a man named
Tharles Carroll and James -Barre, from
abich more than once serious results
nd been expected. On the afternoon of
he day named above, Chas Carr ol,
ecompanied by his brother William and
us brother-in-law, Daniel Wingate, visi
ed the store at Ellisville kept by James
3arre, Charles Carroll being armed with
double-barrelled gun. The other two
iad no visible arms. In a little while
furious quarrel sprung up between
Tharles Carroll and his brother-in-law
inzgate, and the party left the store
pparently in great anrger, for the purpose
f having a settlement. The two Barres,
rohn and James, followed almost im
nedi'itey afterward, for the purpose of
areentig, if possible, what threatened
o be a very serious diffcuhy~ between
he two brothers-in-lara, both of horm
vere known to be reckless anid desperate
ien. The two Barres, unsuspicious of
langer to themselves-for no word of
luarrel had passed between them andI
he other parties-had no so,oner emer.:ed
'romn the building than they were imme
iatel shot down by means of the double
aarreled gun in the hands of Chas.
arrol. James Barre received a charge
f seven buc-k,bot in the u per portion
>f his right breast, and .John Barre was
xounded with an equal number ot buck
hot in the left br east, the charge shat
:ering the upper portion of his arm to
:uch an extent as to render subsequent
imputatinn necessary near the shoulder
nint. Besides these injuries. whichb
ere the fatal ones, be t': men re :eived
rmuds in athei nnrtions of tbeir b-odies
from pist'lI shots, which they afterward,
ia their death.bed testimony, 6eclared
were inflicted on them by Wm:. Carroll T
and Daniel ingate, who, the- de
clared, came up and shot them with v
pistols after they had fallen. The quar- t
rel between Carroll and Wingate, it is p
now believed, was only a sham and in- r
tended as a ruse t, decoy the Barres out
of doors away from their arns where
they might be mo-e saf&ly slaughtered."
The Like City Herald makes the as
sertion, in continuati!)n of its account,
that Johh J. Barre was a fugitive froi
justice from this State, he having killed
a Deputy U.it:d Ss Mar.shal. This
is (enth ey u:. e. noI) D,putv Marshal I
