Mr. Andrew Laughlin,. a clerk
in the office of Commissioner Coit,
at Columnbia, was arrested the 1st
instant, charged with grar'. larce
ny in abstracting Bills of the Bank
of the State from packages present
ed for cancellation. By a recent
Act of the Legislature Mr. Jas. C.
Coit,of Chesterfield, who is'the can
4idate for Comptroller-General on
the Democratic ticket, was selected
to fund the Bills of the Bank of the
State. Parties holding these bills
were requested to hand them to the
Uommissioner, whose duty it was
to pass upon the genuineness.of the
Bills, and to fund those that were
genuine. .For the purpose of .dis
tinguishing the genuine from the
.eomnterfe.it,he employed M~r. Laugh
lin, as an expert.
At the preliminary examination
of Mfr. Laughlin before Trial Jus
tiee Fiekling, Mr. Coit testified
that he snapected nothing wrong
till he was sent for by Gov. Simp
son the 29th of June, who told him
there was suspicion of irregulari
ties, and that one of the packages
that had been examined a.nd sealed
?ip by Mr. Laaughlin did not coptain
the amount it was certified to con
tain. Mr. Coit counted a package
certi.fied 82,015.35, and found it to
contain only $1,616.10. He then
s ou.nted several others-some were
found all right, others short. He
then had Mr. Laughlin arrested ;
upon the preliminary examination
he could give no satisfactory expla
nation of iMb discrepancies, and
was bound oyer to appear for trial
at the July Court of Sessions.
The amont of Bills that have
passed through the hands of Laugh
lin is $600,000 ; there is no telling
the amant of the deficiency, and
it will take two or three months to
recount all the packages.
Judicial Convention at Spar
~The Chairmen of the Executive
Committees of Newberry, Lsaurens,
Spartanburg and Union Counties
met in Spartanburg the .1st inst.,
and decided to hold a~ Convention
at Spartanburg the 13th inst., at

for the Sevent h Judicial Circuit.

after the unveiling of the Newberry
Monument, contained a very accu

the poem, the speech, the 471 names
on the monument, &c., the whole
occupying nearly eight columns of
small print. This report, gotten up
by Messrs. C. H. Beard and Arthur
C. Moore, has received very high
praise, as it well deserves. We

The Republicans are trying to
make capital out of Hancock's con
nection with the execution of Mrs.
Surratt. The Boston Pilot says :
"Our Republican friends will stop
the Surratt question when they re
member that, although Gen. Han
cock was the officer in charge of
the execution, Gen. Garfield was
a member of the Board that con
demned her to death."
The Trip to Cincinnati.
The ride from Greenville to Atlan
ta was made in the company of Maj.
W. J. Houston, one of the politest
and most entertaining railroad officials
it was ever our fortune to meet. Maj.
II. is the general ticket agent of the
Piedmont Air Line, and was regularly
accredited by Col. G. J. Foreacre to
go with the Association and see that
no member got off the track, and to
make himself generally agreeable.
Truly the lives fell unto us in pleas
ant places, every inch a gentleman,
genial, attentive, entertaining, no one
better qualified could have been selected
to fill so responsible and arduous a posi
tion. To the officers of this superb
road the Press Associatiou of South
Carolina are largely indebted for dis
tinguished favors not only on this
recent occasion but in the past.
Their whole course has been liberal,
magnificent; and to them also are we
indebted in negotiating our way over
the Western and Atlantic and the
Cincinnati Southern roads: The Air
Line is exerting its powerful influence

world of other things so hindered that
the smoke covered city was not enter
ed until eight o'clock-the time was
rapi;. .,; m iles in 10 running hours.
This was .1.uday night, and the next
consideration was our lodgings which
had been represented to jus on paper
as pleasan.t, comfortable and perhaps
rooly. Assigued at the depot,the party
'bussed (dry bus) it to o75 Elm Street,
and forty.ive men were ushered into
an ordinary sized sittirg room denu
ded of furniture and laid out with ten
white spread cots, in the most hospital
wauner. Oh ye gods, faucy the feel
ings of the forty five ! it is no wonder
that one coinpleteiy impressed with the
situation ejaculated in forcible lan
guage. It was not so bad as it looked
however, there were other roous, none
of which were so crowded as the first
one entered, then they were clean and
bright as a new piOn, the bedding ditto,
and a plentiful supply of iced cistern
water. Our landlady, a middle aged
widow lady, was charmingly pleasant,
and blessed with two accomplished
and handsome daughters, for either
one of who:n ieSweeuey, Todd and
Wilson would have died. The latter
rather had the inside track by reason
of the cuormous size of his valise,
which it was thought he carried to
hold samples of patent insides, but
which we think contained currency.
1n proof of its size a negro who under
took to tote it brealing down asked a
draynan to give him a lift of 'dis lit
tle grip sack' as he pleasantly calied
it, to which the other responded by
asking what was the size of a trunk.
Quartered, too, near Music Hall,
where the Convention was held, Made
it lively in the extreme. This build
ing is said to be the largest and haud
somaest in the United- States ; it is cer
tainly the largest we have ever seen,

grand and beautiful, a perfect sea of
faces mieetiag the eye. and forming a
sigh t albuust indescriba ble ; t housads
of waving fajis .and handkerchiefs,
swaying bauuers, the mnultitudiaous
sound of eager, expectant voices, the

siht not witnessed every, day. But
wve do not propose to do the Conven
tion, that has been already done.
In the afteruoon, Mr. J. F. Blackburn
still act ing for the Cincinnati Southern
gracefully invited the Association to
place itself in his charge the following
day with the reservatior that no ques
tious be asked. Wi'.h the jrn:Ct
trust of sucklings Unanimous assent
was made. The Press gang were de
termined to show their bringing up

found us on the qui vive, and at ten

position around 375 .Elm, harnessed
to which were uine pair of tuilk white
hores, the tenth being drawvn by jet
blacks. Seated, the procession nmoved,
and'a pretty sight it proyed to ti;e
crowd assembled on the streets, many
of whom no doubt thought that the
dark horse of the Convention occupied
the carria ge drawn by the blacks. With
a thought of the 'forty grey horses
all in a row," which landed some one
"on the other side'of Jordan," we
imagined a similar destin.ation ; but
not so, for the first place stopped at
was the immense brewery of Mr. dohn

much lagered. 'This estabhihment

This speaks voluwes for Cincinnati

be said of other places we know. To

of Mr. }Bluekburn, who act ini in the

and pleasure. As a slight apprecia

The sentry walks upon the frozen ground,
Silent and sad amid the dark profound.
At drear outpost the lonely picket stands,
Grasping his rifle in his aching hands.
He listens, and be strains his weary eye,
Till every bush becomes an enemy,
Till every wail of wind becomes a cry.
Shivering and fainting at his post he stands.
Across the stream he hears the distant bands,
Making glad music to the prosperous foe
Music despite the winter's wind and snow.
He hears the sound of distant revelry:
He hears the laugh, the choral song grow
While he is wretched, sick, and like to die,
Benumbed with cold he drowses. In his
A bright room shines, a blazing hearthstone
The clock ticks cheerily; the clear lamps
Women and ctildren welcome his return.
He seats him joyous at the festive board ;
Partakes the viands of the housewife's hoard;
Quaffs strengthening wine, and all his heart
As merry talk, and song, and laugh go
And blesses heaven that rest at last is found.
He wakes with sudden shock and sharpest
The night-wind pierces all his soul'again:
His dream is fled : the respite all in vain.

Behind the crumbling fortress wall
Confederate Boldiers fight and fall.
'lid air befouled and se thing hot,
'Mid screaming shell and crushing shot,
'Mid heaps of dead, 'mid groass of dying,
They sternly stand, the dread work plying.
By day, by night, by land, by sea,
A thousand guns relentlessly
Rain down their bolts at every breath,
And hold the carnival of death.
So days and weeks of torture pass.
The fort becomes a shapeless mass
Stones, timbers, cannon, earth, all piled
In mounds confused, iin phaqs wild.
All else gives way; all else goes down;
The soldier's heart survives alone.
No rest they seek, no quarter crave,
Resolved to fix there in the wave
Fair freedom's home or freedom's grave!
* * e* * * * '* * *
The mind grows weary, and the heart grows
As fancy seeks these wofql scenes to paint
Unceasir.g labor and uniceasing care
No i'rdedom and no respite anywhere
Long, dreary marches, hunger, drought and
All pangs the pest-house yields or prisons
Watching and strife and dar,ger without end,
~illions ;gaiist us and no man our friend.
Our arinies waste and languish, and at home
Want, care, bereavement wrap the land in
Our rulers pass the time in vain disputc:
The people's heart's are still, their voices
Fresh thousands to the foeman's standard
As clou4s pour forward to the gathering
All natu?e seems to shudder, and await
The last prodigious thunderbolt of fate.
Vast navies gird and hover round the coast,
And hold the stream that cuts our land in
Forts1 citips, states, successiyely' gre lost
/gihopes deceive, hail struggles seem in
They harry all the Imnd with sword and
Their legions crowd from mountain to th e
They giju their rage in every deed of shame:
Their path is marked with ashes and with
Two armies dare to face these thousand still
Weak, wasted, starving, worn with care
But bearing ys' tl. -niconquierable will
To battl~tothe'la a breath of life.
They know their sufferings and their dangers
They see the trials and the terrors nigh:
They seem to hear the nation's fgngral knell:
And yet tyey spora to pitrley or to fly.
The pulse of spring that stirs all nature's
Moves the beleaguering myriads day by
They fill the air wjh ing and hoarse ac
They spread abroad their glittering, stern
They sweep along through haglg gd
They printge sselft rivers, floor the deep
Abattis, breastwork, fortress all go down
Alike in rack n~d ruir as thag~ppass.
The land is gooded with a living tide:
Great armies pour their thousands far and
They smite our feeble band on every side:
They storm with fury front and flank and
The dawn is ushered in with cannon's roar, .j
The day drags on in tumult and n gght,
The sun goes dpWar~nOr sees the conifhet o'er;

Our soldiers battled long and well,
And perished in a cause sublime.

We give at least our praise, our tears,
To all who strive our rights to guard.

Th' example, full of strength and grace,
By which all men their lives should mould.
And should fierce faction o'er divide,
Cr treason's assassin face appear;
When we shall gather side by side,
Treason and strife must perish here.
For here our common mother shows
Her care, her love for every son,
And tells that all our joys our woes,
Our aims, our lives, our fates are one.

They have crossed the river and stand on the
