established in the city of Green

we have our doubts about it.
The Georgia Impeachments.
The Legialatr-e of Georgia seems
to be in the mood for impeachments.
Comptroller-General Goldsmith and
State Treasurer Renfroe have been
impeached; the former for irrega
larities and peculations conceining
the wild lands of the State, and the
latter for drawing and pocketing
interest on the State's money. They
both sent in their resignations
when matters began to grow wain,
Renfroe proposing to refund the
interest ; but Governor Colqr tt re
fused to accept their resignations,
and the impeachments go on, with
the prospect of both being comict

The Charleston MayoraltY.
The Charleston Democracy is
badly split on the municipal cam
paign. There are three canc'dates
f'or Mayor ; Capt. W. A. Couirtenay,
W. W. Sale, present incumbent, and
W. J. Gayer. The fight seems to
lie between Cotn'tenay and Sale,
the latter of whom is playing a role
that is a sort of compromise be
tween John K~elly and Dennis Kear
ney. He is working and coquetting
for the support of the "working
men", so-called, and declares his in
tention of iuening whether nomi
nated or not-if he be not nomina
ted he will attribute the fact to
"political trickery", the offie-seek
er's invariable excuse, and will not
consider himself bound by it. From
present appearances Courtenay has
-the inside track, and is likely to get
the regular nmination. Sale's off
cial conduct as Mayor has not been
satisfactory to the best element of
the Charleston Democracy, and
strong efforts will be made to de
feat him. In the heat of the con
. test party victory has been lost
sight of, the campaign being rather
personal than political
SThe McNinch case---Verdiet,
On Sale-day in December last
Win. C. Kilgore was shot and killed
in the streets of Laurens. Alfred
McNinch was charged with the k11
ing, and was indicted for murder,
Jno. L. M. Irby and Jno. Blackwell
being indicted as aiding and abet
ting. At the February term Mc
Ninch was triedI. He was repre
sented by Messrs. Baxter, Caldwell
and Pope, of Newberry, while Col.
Ball, the Solicitor, was assisted by
Messrs. Todd & Ferguson and Gen.
A. C. Garlington. The jury at that
trial found McNinch guilty of mur
der. His counsel moved for a new
trial, and being overruled they ap
pealed to the Supreme Court, which
overruled the decision of the Cir
cuit Court and granted a new trial.
The case was called again Tuesday,
the 16th instant, Judge Thomson
presiding. There was considerable
diffculty in getting a jury ; the
panel was exhausted, then the "five
mile box", and several additional
jurors had to be obtained from the
County at large. The jm-y was
completed Thursday morning. .The
evidence was finished Friday after
noon, and speeches made that clay
by Messrs Todd and Garlington for
the State, and Messrs. Caldwell and
Baxter for the defense. Satnrday

Messrs. Jno. J. Dargan and Jo
seph H. Earle, of Srmter, both law
yers and also members of the Legis
lature, have had a falling out about
something that occurred dpring the
last session. Y-. Dargan chal
lenged Mr. Earle, and they agreed
to fight at Sand Bar Ferry, near
Augusta. The Sheriff of Sr-nter
got wind of it and arrested the
principals. Mr. D. was put under
bonds to keep the peace and Mr. E.
escaped, and went on to Augusta
Thursday night, with his second,
W. D: Blanding, being followed
next day by Mr. D., and his second,
Guignard Richardson. The Au
gusta police had received descrip
tions of the parties with a request
to arrest them. Mr. Dargan was
arrested on the train as soon as he
reached the city. The police went
to arrest Mr. Earle at the Planter's
Hotel, but had no warrant and Mr.
E. refused to be arrested. While
the policeman was gone for a war
rant Mr. E. escaped over into Ham
burg. Mr. Dargan gave bond and
left. It is thought the parties will
have a hostile meeting yet, probably
in North Carolina.

term, the Bar had i-equested Gene
ral McGowan to act as their spokes

his Honor. At the proper time
General McGowan rose f-om his
seat and said:
"May it please your Honor, this
being your first term at this place,
I have been requested in behalf of
the members of the Bar, to thank
you for the ability with which you
have discharged the duties of the
high and responsible office of Judge,
as well as to thank you for your

thing of nervousness, interrupting
the General, said:
"I have made it my custom, Gen
eral, to rule all such proceedings as
out of order, and I must insist upon
adhering to my custom in this in
The interruption was so raex
pected t.hat the General was much
taken aback, and as he took his
seat, only added:
"There was no harm meant."
The custom of lauding public
officers, especially Judges, for doing
their duty is a very reprehensible
one, and we hope the prompt and
decisive action of Judge Pressly
will have the effect of putting a
stop to it.
Some Good Suggestions.
The Grand Jury of Fairfield
Cou"ty tecently made the following
suggestions in their presentment,
which are worthy, we think, of care
ful consideration :
Tne spirit of litigation, we think,
is on the increase, especially upon
the part of the colored portion of
our citizens, and some cases are
sent up by trial justices that might
be dismissed and no harm to the
public result. The fees to trial
justices are too small for the ser
vices required in many instances,
whilst the costs in the higher
courts are still exceedingly high.
The true philosophy of life is to
adapt ourselves to surrot"iding cir
cumstances-a poor people must
have cheap rates, and as litigation
seems a necessity rather than a
luxury, we recommend a lowering
of its prices.
Under the old law lands could
only be sold for taxes for a term of
years not exceeding seven, when
they reverted to their former
owners. They are now forfeited
indefinitely, if not permanently,
when sold upon this account. Be
fore the war the proposition was to
sell land upon tax account to the
party who would bid the least num
ber of years for its use ; now the
plan is to sell the least number of
acres permanently, if not redeemed
in a certain time, so that many far
mers are unable to raise the money ;
aidd it frequently happens that
large tracts are purchased for a
nominal amount of taxes, which it
is believed can never be recovered
by their rightful owner-s. We re
comniend the abrogation of the
present law and a return to the old
one for two reasons: 1st. Our
famer and land-holdrs, by being
reserve funds for the purchase of
forfeited lands. 2nd. The present
law is a relic of Radicalism and
was designed by the vile thieves
who were permitted for a while to
rule over us for the destruction of
every honest farmer in the State;
and for this reason if for no other
we deem its repeal eminently ap
propriate, now that we are retvua
ing, though slowly, to the pristine
purity and simplicity of those ages
which made our country respected
and admired by all the nations of
The practice, too prevalent, of
compromising with violators of
the law is earnestly reprehended.
Many instances are noted where
thefts have been comwitted in the
town and country, and the perpe
trators allowed to escape by pag ng
exorbitant charges for the ar+cles
stolen. The results to morality are
disastrous, and additional incentive
is thereby given for more extended
depredations upon the community,
in order that these losses may be
made good. Citizens should re
member that the country at large is
interested in the detection and pun
ishment of crime, especially in the
suppression of theft, which we are
pained to state is largely on the
increase; and we recommend the
passage of more stringent laws
against it and also a law requiring
parties who detect it to prosecute in

Sept. 17, 1879.
Leaving the noise, bustle and hurry
of New York City behind, and its ever
varying multiplicity of excitements
and enticements, we have nestled down
in quiet Stratford, with its aged els
and clean cut grass borders. There
is a deliciousness in and about the air,
surroundings and people here which
is refreshingly restful. In New York
the mind is ever on the stretch. Eyes
and ears are kept busy, there is no
rest. On the streets the human njass
is at flood-ride always, hotels and de
pots empty and fill with wonderful
quickness, 'busses, street cars, cabs,
carts, wagons all filled pass up and
down, in and out and across, through
crowds of people on foot, hurrying,
skurrying, here, there and every where,
and happily everything and everybody
gets through, an accident seldom oc
We pause at some one of the many
intersections ou Broadway near the
Post Office and wonder what would
become of one of our home drays if
set down in such a vortex. Our Jehu
would scarcely bring his wagon
through in safety. lie would wait
no doubt until the crowd passed and
the hurry is over. The sun might
stand still, but the tide of Broadway
must go on and on, and the end be as
far off as ever. Even at night there
seems to be no rest-one supposes that
there is no such thing as sleep there,
but all do sleep, only that all do not
indulge at the same time in "nature's
sweet restorer." At no hour of the
night does any degree of quiet exist.
The rumbling of 'busses and street
ars never ceases altogether.
But we are out of all this and in
quiet Stratford, where we arrived on
Thursday evening, happily finding our
friends, Mr. and Mrs. Hurd and fami
ly, well and full of that kind and pleas
ant hospitality for which they are
noted. Friday was laid out as a day
of rest, but kind friends picked us up
for a trip to New Haven, fifteen miles
distant. A half hour's ride, at an out
lay of 45 cents, and a delighted party
of Lhree ladies and ourself were landed
in the handsomest depot on this line
of road. It is worth the cost of the
trip to see this if nothing else-for it
is not only beautifully built, but so
conveniently arranged that no want of
the traveller, male or female, but is
considered. The scene presented here
is one of liveliest interest, the elegant,
large hall, appropriate furniture and
conveniences for ladies and gentlemen,
the large circular refreshment stand
occupying the centre, presided over
by pretty girls, filled with every kind
of food, (not the girls but the table)
from the common 10 cents sandwich
up, the constantly changing crowd of
men, women and children, make up a
picture highly enjoyable. No travel:
ler should come this far without visit
ing New Haven, by far the handsom
est city we have ever seen, with its
beautifully laid grass-bordered streets,
stately, branching old elms and hand
some dwellings. In many of the
streets, although 150 feet wide, the
elms interlock and form an arbor, giv
ing a shade even at midday. Here is
situated Yale College with its 700 or
800 students, just moving into their
rooms. The buildings on the campus
are immense in size and numerous.
Space forbids an extended notice of
this charming New England city, over
whih the p1leai of a three hours
Our lady readers will be pleased to I
learn that the handsome stores with
their beautiful wares were not over- i
looked, and that the prices of very i
many articles displayed in window and 1
door fronts were low enough to run an
impecunious editor wild. This re
minds us to say one word as to the
fruit, which is as various as abundant,
delicious Bartlett pears, luscious peach
es, grapes, bananas and red cheeked
apples tempt you at every step of the
way, either in windows or street stands.
At five we turn toward the depot, and
once more become interested in the
scene there presented-the hall is
again crowded. but with another set,
and soon they are gone, together with
the writer and the fair ladies above
mentioned, and in a few minutes we
are in Stratford once more.
Forming the acquaintance of a
young farmer, Mr. Charles Stagg, a
delightful ride was afforded by him
through the town, to his truck farm,
in which we saw among other growing
vegetables a patch containing 17,000
heads of cabbage! A sight which
would give delight to some of our krout
makers at home. From thence through
the salt meadows and mosquitoes to
the beach on the corner of which
stands a prominent and important
light house, all along the beautiful
sound, in lively motion from the stiff
easter, crafts of various shapes and
sizes were making their way into port,
and in the far distance, stretched out
like a curtain of mist, lay Long Island.
We were pleased to find our young
farmer friend as intelligent as ener
The farms here are models, in high
cultivation and very productive-corn
looks splendid and the pasture lands
make glad the heart. Cattle are fat
and sleek-and the milch cows are of
the finest kind. Much of the plowingl
is done by oxen, huge and well train
ed, and the ground is turned over just
as it ought to be-no skimming.
A day in East and West Bridge
port,'down among the factories, fills a
part of our experience. Here is the
great Wheeler & Wilson Sewing Ma
chine Factory, employing about 1,500
hands-Mr. H. is engaged in this
busy hive, as also Mr. Capers, former
ly of Newberry-took dinner with the
latter. Phineas T. Barnum, the great
showman, also lives here-saw him
and his wife. But we must take the
5 o'clock accommodation train back
to Stratford and get ready for a home
ward movement, and we take leave by
adding that while the quietest place
in a business or social point of view,
it is the noisiest and quickest, by rea
son of the number of trains-fifty-two
-which pass through here every day.
We have counted six inside of 15
minutes, going and coming, there be
ing double tracks. The Express trains
go by with a whiz, comet like in ap
pearance-indeed the scene is a lively
one. And now having already spun
our letter into too great length we
will close by adding that the visit to
the green hills and verdant valleys of
Connecticut, and the meeting of old
friends, among whom we include the
distinguished artist Mr. Curtiss, and
his accomplished wife and daughter,
Miss Lilla, was one of unalloyed pleas
ure. Two days more in New York to
wind up, and-this is all.

Our Washington Letter.
WAsHINGToN, D. C.,
Sep. 17, 1879.
The entire Radical press is com
plaining of the acquittal of Gully for
the murder of Cornelia Chisholm. The
entire Republican press may be right,
but the subject should be considered
fairly. Gen. Woodford, of New York,
who attended the trial for the purpose
of observing it, says that all the forms
of law were adhered to, that the jury
was fairly and impartially drawn, and
that the Judge, if partial at all, leaned
to the side of the proseuution, and
ruled against the accused. With
these facts, it is alleged that the ver
dict was against the law and the evi
dece. This, as every one will see, isi
merely a difference of opinion between i
the jury who tried Gully, and some
other persons, such as occur in all
criminal trials everywhere in which
the public take much interest. The
effort to make political capital out of
this trial in Mississippi is as ridiculous<
as the same effort would be over a like i
trial in Massachusetts. The adminis- t
tration of justice by criminal courts 3
should be exempt from all political in- t
fluences, of course, and it is as much I
for the interest of one party as ano- e
ther, and one section t' another, to (
make it so.

The Common School System of
In the present article, we crave the
indulgence of our readers whilst we
proceed, against our every refied sense
>f propriety, decorum and decency, to
%nswer "Quaker's" scurrilous diatribe
in last week's paper. Solomon says,
"Answer a fool according to his folly,
lest he be wise in his own conceit."
The rebuke of a profound and contin
ed silence would suffice for a wise
man; but that of the plainest words
must be used on the silly. For your
benefit, then, my well-bred (!) Quaker,
ind for that of the public press which
it is hoped you may not again outrage,
[ shall answer, that I hear you. To
the gratification which may fill your
bosom at this condescension, we bid
you welcome ; but it is the last you
will ever receive. I shall give you a
little of my private history, which is
most unhappy. Born under a most
inauspicious star, these four fatalities
have marred my life from its earliest
1st. I have never been able to go
inywhere, either at home or abroad,
nder the glaring rays of the "King
of Day" or through the deepening
gloom of the evening shades, but by
some strange fatality or other my per
onality and presence have been im
mediately nosed out and made the ob
jective point of a "world-of-barking"
by whatsoever little, narrow-minded,
ontemptible, bench-legged fiees were
around that way.
My second fatality is always to be
misunderstood, misrepresented, reviled
and slandered, especially by those of
juvenile years, whose mind unmatured
is the sport of their passions, and
whose judgment undeveloped is as
akle as the wind.
My third fatality lies in the posses
ion of a sympathy as boundless as the
armament and as restless as the sea.
Stretching out towards the poor and
he ignorant and unfortunate every
where in the world, it embraces you
rd attends your cries. That doleful
amentation at the fear of becoming
~ddle-pated shall not escape its atten
ion. God forbid you should become
my worse through me ! The "con
andrum" shall be solved, if you think
t will save you. "Why did I choose
~hat singular peroration of the don
~ey ?" Because I was hunting up
he game that infested the public do
ain-the lions, and bears, and wolves,

y, however, to have found you brows

nent of the same and a danger to the
~oung who go there. You don't n
erstand my repetition of the "asses."

mwillingly compelled to adapt our
anguage to the taste and comprehen
'ion of those we assail. Otherwise,
e would get no hearing. You your
elf essentially confess, that you would
iave gone on browsing to the ignoring
f my pieces, had it not been for your
emarkably strong predilection for
hose "asses" and its synonymn, which
ou have tastefully used about fifteen
imes. Don't you see it?i This herd

not advocating the establishment ol

and exclusive dedication to the work
of breaking down, overthrowing, and

iug into print. It is quite refreshing
to be taught logic by a young sopho
moric, not yet beyond the use of "dia
lectics," and that silly little, puerile
line of verbal reasoning which is based
upon your "italics." Yeu remind me
of that '-distinguished" Professor-all
"Professors" are "distinguished," not
excluding "corn curers"-who once
quite foolishly undertook to demon
strate certain laws of gravitation by
leading a heavy carriage down a bill,
himself between the shafts. In a lit
tle less than no time, he generated
many a hyperbolic curve, many a trans.
cendental in-equation, and was landed
ingloriously in the mud. It was emi
nently proper that you should take a
hippogriffic flight into Mexico and
Italy, "those lands of hybrids". Sea
traveling was the very thing for your
malady, if accompanied with bathing.
Besides, a sojourn abroad has a ten
dency to expand our views. Bell the
cats, if you wish. I never fail to in
dulge my boys in such little harmless
recreations. But your complaint is a
strange one! Let us hear something
more about "the beautiful waters of
Lucerne" ! Is the pond large enough
to wash in ? And now let us hear
the rest of my history. My fourth
fatality, then, consists in my having
been indissolubly wedded by the star
of destiny to an honesty unswerving
and a truthfulness unvarnished. These,
sir, are the only serpents that inwrap
Laocoon and render him set apart as
unworthy and hateful in the eyes of
his people. These are they that pre

you seem to have done. But let this
suffice-it is the only explanation you
can publicly receive : Not on the
