Gaiteau on the Gallows.
WAsHINGToV, June 30.-Guiteau
was very restless -during most of the
latter part of the night, not sleeping
ina thai twenty minutes at a time.
Towards morning he fell into a wood
er sleep from sheer exhaustion. He
rose a few minutes after five and
breakfasted heartily. At 6.30, when
the cook took his breakfast into the
cell, Guiteau told him to bring his
dinner in at 11 o'clock promptly.
Rev. Dr. Hicks, who remained at
the jail all night, was called into the
prisoner's cell soon after he rose and
hold a conversation on religious sub
jects with him.
~ * $ * * .
While Dr. ic was i the cell at
11 o'clock Guiteau made some requests
as to the execution, and, having made
copies of his "last prayer," poem and
other writings, tore up the originats.
He had his boots blacked, and as the
doctor was leaving the cell his dinner
was brought in. Guiteau ate it with
much relish. When Dr. Hicks came
out of the cell he said the prisoner had
not the slightest fear. "We have had
a pleasant religious talk. He feele
now that his preparation is finished
and that he is ready for the last for
mality. He commits himself to God
with the utmost confidence. I think
he will shcw some emotion because
the nervous strain is so great."
Shortly before 12 o'clock Guitean
seemed to break down completely and
burst into tears and sobbed hysterically.
After the death warrant was read to
the prisoner by the Warden he be
came much more composed, and, tarn
ing away, begun to brush his hair.

** * *
Two minutes later the iron gates at
the end of the corridor clicked. Then
Warden Crocker made his appearance,
and a moment later the familiar figure
of Guiteau was seen. His face was
pallid and the tnusclesabout his mouth
moved nervously. Other than this,
there were no signs of faltering.
The procession moved quickly to
the scaffold and Guiteau ascended the
twelve somewhat steep steps with as
much steadiness as could be expected
from a man whose arms were tightly
pinioned behind him. At the last step
he faltered for a moment but was as
sisted by the two officers, who walked
one upon either side. Upon reaching
the platform Guitean was placed im
mediately behind the drop, facing to
the front of the scaffold.
* * * * *
There was a slight delay, while the
crowd of two hundred and fifty or more
spectators were pushing and jostling
through the door leading from the ro
tanda to the corridor, at the lower end
of which the gallows was placed.
Guitean meanwhile gazed upon the
crowd, looked up at the beam over
his head, and quickly made a survey
of all the dread paraphernalia.
As soon as the crowd had gained
access, General Crocker waved to them
to uncover and all heads were bared.
Dr. Hicks made an invocation in
these words :
* * * * *
During the prayer Guitean stood
with bowed head. At its conclusion,
Dr. Hicks opened the Bible and Gui
teau in firm tones said: "I will read a
selection from the tenth chapter of
Mathew fiom the 28th to the 41st
verse inclusive." He then read in a
clear strong voice and with good in
tonation, showing little if any nervous
nes. Dr. Hicks produced the manu
script which was prepared by the pris
oner this morning and held it before
him while Guitean read. While Dr.
Hicks was arranging the manuscript
Gintean exhibited a slight nervousness
and moved several times from one foot
to the other He soon recovered his
composure, looked over the sea of up
turned faces and said: "I am now go
ing to read to you my last dying pray
He then read in a loud tone and
with a distinct and deliberate emphasis
the following: "Father, now I go to
Thee and the Savior. I have finished
that work Thou gayest me to do and I
am only too happy to go to Thee.
The world does not yet appreciate my
mission, but Thou knowest it. Thou
knowest Thou didst inspire Garfield's
removal and only good has come from
it. This is the best evidence that the
inspiration came from Thee, and I
have set it forth in wy book that all
men may read and know that Thou,
Father, didst inspire the ac'. for which
I am now murdered. This govern

will incur Thi eternal enmity, as did
the Jews in killing Thy man, my Sa

came quick and sharp, and I know
Thy -Divine law of retribution will
strike this nation and my murderers
in the same way. The diabolical
spirit of this nation, its governwent
and its newspapers toward me willijus
tify Thee in cursing them; and I
know that Thy law of retribution is
inexorable I therefore predict that
this nation will go down in blood, and
that my murderers, from the Execu

Thy laws are inexorable, Oh, Thou
Supreme Judge. Woe unto the men
that violate Thy laws; only weeping
and.gnashing of teeth awaits them.
The American press has a large bill
to settle with the righteous Father for
their vindictiveness. Not.hing but
my blood will satisfy them, and now

him and saved his party and the land

will judge him. Father, thou know
est me, but the world has not known
me. And now I go to Thee and the
Savior without the slightest ill will
toward a human being. Farewell, ye
men of faith."
* * * * *
When he had finished reading the
prayer he again surveyed the crowd
.ad said, ptill with a firm voice: "I
am now going to read verses which are
intended to indicate my feelings at the
moment of leaving this world.
(The following lines are a specimen.)
"I am going to the Lordy,
I am so glad.
I am going to the Lordy,
I aus so glad.
I am going to the Lordy,
Glory, hallelujah !
Glory, hallelujah !
* * * * *
This closed the chant and then Rev.
Mr. Hicks gave to Guitean his final
benediction and farewell, saying:
"God the Father go with thee and
give thee peace forevermore."
The attendants then pinioned his
legs, placed the noose over his head
and carefully adjusted it about the

was touched, the drop fell at 12.40 P.
M., and Guiteau swung in the air.
The body turned partly around and t
there was not the slightest perceptible f
motion of the limbs or any evidence of
conscious effort to move them.
When the drop fell a yell was sent
up by some persons inside the jail.
This was repeated outside by over a
thousand people, who hurrahed lusti
ly. There was a general onslaught
by the populace upon the door, which
was so powerful that the officers were
unable to withstand it. Hundreds of
people crowded into the office and
there was a terrible crush at the door.
For at least forty seconds after the
drop fell the body hung motionless.
Then there was a slight motion of the
shoulders and legs, due to muscular

STATE OF SOUrH CAEOINA,
ExvTrva CaAMasa, -
COLUMBIA, June 27, 1882.
Senators and Represenatives:
In the Proclamation convening the
General Assembly in Extra Session, and
issued in the exercise of the discretion
vested by the Constitution in the Exe
cutive, I have stated the fact which con
stituted in my judgment, the "extraor
dinary occasion" requiring your pre
sence here at this time. Recent legis
lation of the Federal Congress, based
upon the relative advance of the seve
ral States in population, has entitled
South Carolina to two additional mem
bers of the House of Representatives of
the United States, to be elected before
the next regular session of the General
Assmblhy of this State; and it is incum
bent upon you, by z'uch legislation as
your wisdom may suggest, to give
effect to this increased representation
in the councils of the General Govern
In discharge of the further tiuty im
posed upon me by the Constitution of
recommending to your consideration
such measures as I shall judge neces
sary or expedient, you will permit me
to refer to one other and kindred mat
ter. The increase in population and
rapid development of material resour
ces in alsections of the State make a
readjustment, to a limited extent at.
least, of tbe Counties desirable in the
near future. The Constitution of 1868
authorizes the formation of new Coun
ties from time to time, but provides
that after the date of that instrument
no new Counties shall be formed with
a less area than six hundred and twen
ty-five square miles, and that each
County shall form one Election District.
Both of these provisions were innova
tions upon the policy which had so long
prevailed, and both seem to me injudi
cious. Several of the old Counties, and
same of the most thriving and well
managed, contain less than this territo
rial limit.. Besides, area is not the true
criterion in this matter. Where there
is the necessary population and proper
ty to meet the expense of the new or
ganization, the convenience of the peo
ple is the true test in the formation of
"these subdivisions of the State. Ncr is
there any necessary connection between
the Judicial and the Election District.
It may be preferable to retain the same
divisions for each, or it may he prefer
able as formerly, to have them in some
instances different. Certainly, provis
ions on these subjects find their proper
place in the Statutes, where they can
with more facility be modified or chan
ged. They should not be incorporated
as Procrustean rules in the fundamen
tal law. I therefore recommend that
at this session the necssry legislation
be had to submit to the qualified voters
of the State, at the coming election, the
question of a repeal of the provision
referred to in Section 3, Article UI., of
the Constitution. These restrictions be
ing removed, whenever .applications
are hereafter made from localities inter
ested in the formation of new Counties,
or in the etablishment of new Election
Districts, they may be considered by
future Legislatures upon their merits,
and disembarrassed of limitations with
out foundation in reason.
Called together upon the occasion of
a particular emergency, and at a time
so near the period when through the
ballot box the popular wishes will be
decisively made known upon questions
now occupying the public mind, no
other measures occur to me as necessary
or expedient to recommend to your
JOHNSON HAGOOD, Governor.

MElsas. EDIToR : If you have
space in your valuable paper I will
gi-; your readers a few dots. For the
past month the weather has been very
warm. It has put me in the notion
to plant King Cotton in the Quaker
City. I have it at present growing
nicely. 1 want to see if I can make
it a profitable business in the North
Since my arrival in the City I have
visited the largest Cotton Mills. The
buildings are elegantly constructed.
Business is carried on like clock-work.
The Mills are paying the stockholders
from 20 to 30 per cent. on their invest
went. It is largely accounted for why
there is so iuucii wealth North. They
understand business and it is carried
out to the letter. If the South will
change her mode of business she can
make the same profit, or more. We
have the advantage of cheap labor,
timber,- &c. If we will make this
change we will have a few millionaires

Princeton University in New Jersey.
I accepted the invitation. On my
arrival I found it a very desirable little

The College Buildings are located on
a rise, built of fine granite, very large
in size. The College has 400 acres of
grouud belonging to it, well shaded
with trees and cuvered with grass, &c.
All of this combined makes it a very
beautiful place. I don't think it can
be surpassed in America. The at
tendance was very large. It has 500
students. There were a great many
visitors. The fair sex were numerous
and were elegantly dressed. All of
this made the attraciion very great.

neighbor of his that he owns no other
property outside of Newberry County
than a $1,600 tract of land in Orange
I wonder why the man that juai
fied in 84.000. and pays taxes on only
$2,650. and had money on hand to
buy a $2.100 tract of laud ani make sp
other valuable investmet'ts, did not
pay taxes on that money. for the law i;
requires taxes to be paid on all moneys or

over and above his homestead and a'

I wonder why the man that justified ye
in 812.000 and owrs, as Ajax, Jr., A
says, that amount outside of the part- w
nership firm, does mot pay taxes out- ha
side the firm on one-tenth (1.10) of e
that amount. We may be groping in IB
utter darkness and unmindful of the
age in which we live, but with the 8

TEE TRUE PRINCIPLE OF TAXA- e
TlON.-The people demand a low in
system of taxation. No money must ki
be raised by law except for the sup- a
port of the government. Any addi- It
tional burden is spoliation. The aye- th
temn should be just and bear equally
upon all classes of our citizens. One -
body of our population must not be
forced to contribute to the luxury and
conmfort or the enterprise of another. J.
Equal burdens should be imposed SN
upon all. These are the principles of -
sound Democracy. It was by . the
strict adherence to them of our fathers *]
that this country became great and
prosperous. To ignore them is to sa
abandon all chance of permanent sue. Do
cess, to surrender lifelong principles 2
and defeat the will of~ the people..
