The Rev. Henry M. Mood in a com
inunication to the Abbeville Me
diua speaking of the Churches and
pastorate of Newberry, makes this
pleasieg mention of the Rev. P. F.
Stephens, who has been lately called
to the charge of the Episcopal Church
of t ISlace:
"Rv. P. F. Stephens has recently
accepted Ahe charge of the Episcopal
chuw)L,. We have no personal ac
qualatance with Mr. Stephens, but
know him very well b'y reputation. He
is a man of clear head, good heart,
and-liberal sentiment, and is certainly
an acquisition to the church at New
berry. The following well authenti
cated anecdote of him I beard siume
time ago. During Mr. Stephens's ab
sence during the war his house was 1
pillaged and, on his return after the
war toDtake charge of his flock, he
found it "filled with emptiness."
With the aid of his parishioners, he
procured by purchase and loan, what
ecessay to begin housekeepigD
agan but the general destitution was I
such that his house was very scantily
furnished: A few Sabbaths after he
had resumed the rectorship of his
church, he was in the woods busily
studying his sermon for the day when
his attention was attracted by a ne
gro man with his axe, who without
seeing him, knocked a large fat s:w I
in the head,.and with his knife stuck
it. Mr. Stephens, who was quite
near him at the time, approached,
when the negro in great excitement
raised his axe and threatened to kill
him, saying: "You will tell on me f
sir! You will te'l on me, sir, t
I will kill you." Mr. Stephens quiet- 9
ly bade him put down his axe, and
with eariest words portra3ed the
eharacter of the crime he had just
committed; the loss on the part of
the owner-a poor widow' lady-and
preaehed to him the rich pardon offer- 2
ed by Christ to the sinner. His hear
er became affected to tears. Mr.
Stephens then proposed prayer and
both knelt over the dead hog, while s
in devout entreaty the preacher beg- I
ged God's pardon upon the guilty act ,
just committed. They arose from
their knees; the negro was subdued,
convicted, and in penitence asked :
.-What shall I do, sir ?" "Take this I:
ho- to the owner," was the reply. d
-Tell her that, in the hour of tempta- t
tion gou yielded, and killed, but that
you now see the guilt of the act, and t
you have co'me to restore the property s
and make amends to the utmost ex- X
tent of your ability. The regrv did t
as he was bidden. Several nights af
ter, Mr. Stephens was at home with
his family, when he was startled by J
the entrance of several negro men. r
They declared themselves to be friends, ii
stated that they had learned of his e
eliristian dealing with the negro who
had killed the hog, that he had dealt
with one of their race as they believ- ~
ed no other white man in that country a
would, and that they had come to of- a
fer their services to. gather up his pro- a
perty, which was scattered among thet
colored people all over the country..
MIr. Stephens told them that he would J
be very glad to get back his furniture, i
&c., provided, it could be obtained a
without force, but that he could not
consent for any violent means to be
resorted to. They consented to the
condition, and being provided with
wa.;on and horses, they soon returned r
with a load, and then another ad an- 3
other, and Mr. Stephens soon found
himself supplied with the comforts eni
joyed before the war. Among the C
furniture restored was a valuable piano f
given -to his wife as a bridal present e
the night of marriage. We searcely a
need add, that Mr. Stephens occupied
a warm place in the hearts of the
colored as well as the white population
of that low country, and nmany were z
the sad hearts when he left for his up- t
country home. The people of .New
berry and Anderson will know how to
- appreciate him."
THE LAD~Y GRANGERIS ON THE t
IRTOrr TRACK.-There is one good e
feature about the Grangc m)ovemntI
it utilizes woman's capabilities for use
fulness. Give them a chance to be,
"useful as well as ornamental," and
they will not need the ballot to enforce
anzy political dogmas. In the late- n
meeting of the State Grange at Atlan- h,
ta the~y took part-they became enthu
siastic in the objects of the Order
and Mrs. T. J. Smith put this good in- ~
spiration into living hope, as follows:V

Ldvertising medium offers uhrivallid ad

We acknowledge receipt of a pam
hlet copy of the Rteport of the Attor
ey-General of South Carolina, Hon. S.
V. Melton, to the General Assembly,
t the regular session 1873-74.
Mr. W. H. McCaw.
The above named gentleman has
ecently accepted a position on the
ditorial staff of the News & Courier.
Ve congratulate the News & Courier
U, so valuable an acquisition. Mr.
IcCaw is an able, elegant and fearless
rriter, and in a short time has acquir
d an enviable reputation. He has
ar ,some time been a correspondent
a that paper from Columbia under the
iguature of "Qui Vive," and will con
inue to act in that capacity.
Trial by jury has become a farce in
'ewberry,. if we take as a fair sample
he jurymen of the last Court of Gen
ral Sessions, composed almost exclu
ively of colored men. It was truly a
nentable spectacle to witness the
tter unfitness of the great majority
f these men who were chosen to try
heir .countrymea according to the
xw and evidence. Some of the ver
iets reudered were in direct opposi
ion to the overwhelming evidence of
be guilt of the prisoners, as for in
tauce. in the case of the State vs.
Ldaw King, and iu plain contradic
ion of the law as given from the
sench. We charge the most of these
rors, not. simply with incapacity by
eason of ignorance, but with incapac
:y by want of the proper moral qualifi
ations. The law requires jurors to
e chosen who are "persons of good
ioral character, of sound judgment,
nd free from all legal exceptions,"
nd it was most shamefully violated
t the last court. Upen whom rests
be responsibility ? Of course those
arymen could not help being chosen.
Vhy, the responsibility rests simply
nd heavily upon the Jury Comniis
ioners, who seemed on this occasion
a have utterly ignored the fact that
utelligent and upright jurymnen are
eessary to the liberty of the people.
Ve have no objection to the selection
f negroes as jurors because of their
olor ; they have the right, if quali
ed, and they should be allowed to ex
reise it. But we do most seriously
bject to any one as a juror, whether
.e be white or b!ack, who is not of
good moral character, of sound judg
ent and free from all legal excep
ions." This is the law, and the offi
ers who fail to eicente it should be
eld to a strict account.
Trial by jury is the dearest right of
me citizen, the palladium of our lib
rties, what infamy then must attach
them who bring it into comtempt.?

Proposed Pension for Soldiers;
of the Mexican War:
A bill has recently been introduced
in each House of Congress, which pro
poses giving a pension to the survi
vors of the Mexican War. It is but
riaht that it should be done, and the
passage Uf the bill will give unqualified
satisfaction. The pith of the bill is as
"Mr. Logan's bill provides that a pen
sion of eiglit dollars per month shall
be given to each honorably discharged
surviving officer or enlisted man-in
eluding 11ilitia and volunteers-of the
military and naval service who served
sixty days in war with Mexico. and al
so to surviving unmarrieg widows of
such officers and so:diers."
Our Marion exchanges inform us
that Mr. Fillebrown, of the Comptrol
ler-General's office, gave close examina
tion. last Monday to the books of the
County Auditor and Treasurer and the
records of the proceedings of the Coun
ty Board of Equalization. le expres
sed himself as thoroughly satisfied of i
the justice of the complaint of the
citizens of Marion. We commend
the line of action resorted to by the
people of Marion. We also approve I
of the prompt steps taken by the
Comptroller-General and Mr. Fille
browne to make close personal exam
ination into the matter. Now let the
Legislature do its duty likewise.
And other Counties have a good pre
cedent set them in the prudent an1d
firm course of Mariou's men.
Our law makers are still at work.
We had hopes that the session would
have been over by this time, but we
are mistaken. The taxes not being
1eceived in full, there is, as a matter
I of course, a great deal of work still to
b. performed. The bill for the exten
sien of time for the payment of taxes
until the 1st of March has not yet
passed. This, we think, ,is a mis
chievous delay, since, if it fails to pass
be*ore the 5th of this month it will
not accomplish the object for which it
is designed, that is, the relief of the
taxpayers, as most will have been paid
by that time. -On the Uth ult. both

ere requested again to act.
The report of the Committee of three ap
>inted at the January meeting being ca:led
r, Mr. Wm. T. Tarrant, on the part of the
ntmittee, reported, that the County 3oard
Equlization was alone responsible for
e enormous aiiessment in this county, a,
e State Board of' Equaalation had not
ised the estimate of' the County lloard: that
Cy had been unable accurately to :;certai
what proportioni tile present asse<smenr
:eeded thatof lastyear; that in a conterence
d with J. D. Boston, one of the represen
Lives from this County in the .egislature,
had pledged himself to use every elfort to
ocure such action on the part of the Legis
ture as to effectuate the objects we had! in
ew. The report was received as informa

The tax-payers of Sou-kth Carolina ate
>w pa.yi.ng tax on double the market
due of their property. Lands are
fling at from $: to $6 per aere, and
erM a1SeiSseed ait flho-ze prices genieral
:t the last assessiment. The assess
ents were reiiilered inl oil oatli to be
m markettl! v:lue of the property.
ow is it le.-al that the assessment can
d1oubled-and the tax-payers subjected
pay tax on doulble the am111ouit of
operty possessed by them? There is
rea.-4on, there is no law, there is no
stice in the Case. Property should be
xed according to its market value.
he party in powe.r think this to be a
dden scheme to raise a large aMount.
at we are not deprived of reaon yet.
ihy not levy a tamx of 40 mills on the
>lar and give equamlity to every tax
yer-not double and, treble the as
~ssment. What does the Esjualizadon
vardl know its to the value of lands in
e different localities? Nothing butt to
mse the atmount equal to the deC
ands of their pockets. The State is
orse off to-day than when Sherman's
-myv crossed the Carolina line. The
ople under this high handed robbery
double assessments, will not be
le to meet the demands, consequtently
ey are not able to employ labor for

tisfied bec:ause they cannot get ad
meements, amnd are moving about ftomn
lace to p)lace, humnting some one to teed
ke. Patrons of Husbandry, we have
een laboring to advance the agriculta
d interests of our State; to-dlay stares
;it the face an insurmountable object
-property selling at from $:1 to $4 per
re for lands, and mules at from $75
$100 each, enhanced from the last
~.ular assessment to double anti treble
ese prices for the pups of filling
e pockets of our oppressors. We are
ft but one alternative; that is to enm
oy only white labor. Bring in immi
rants, rent, lease and hire until our
tate is filled with white voters of good
Ioor old Southt Caroli'na ! Let the ery
F distress go forth to every P. IL
iroughout the whole Union ; awl if
o relief can come, wve know that we
ave the symp)athies of our brethren,
hieh is some consolation.
Catn't the Governor see, and the Leg

isery and woe upon the latnd? The
ore the taxpayers are burdened with
