properly opposed, iorcscoing that tho

financial ruin and disastor to every
branch of industry, and produce one
oi mo greatest panics ever known in

Job Citbws Shot.?This 6omewliat
notorious gentleman, who is now a
Representative in tho Legislature
from Laurens county, was waylaid
and shot, lour miles trom Lauren6
Court House, on the morning of tho
Slh inst. Mr. Crews was shot with a
double barreled shot gun, fivo buck
shot taking effect, four in tho back,
two on either sido tho back bono.
Mr. Charlio Boll in, wiio was in the
buggy with Crews, received a slight
wound in the shoulder. Tho latent
accounts had from Crows represent
liia condition as a critical aud dangerous
one ; the balla having been
probed for to the depth of four inches
and only ono extractod; and afr
was escaping from tho lurgs thrcugh
ono of the wounds. Ilis recovery is
despaired of. Gov. Chamberlain has
offered a reward of ono thousand dollars
for tho apprehension, with proof
to convict, of tho parties who did the
shooting. Crows had many political
and personal enemies in Laurens
county, but it is not said upon what
ground* the shooting was done, but,
like all other unfortunate and often
individual affairs, the Radical party
aro trying to niako political capital
out of it and have commenced, in
certain quarters, to hold up the
"bloody shirt" to tho public gazo.
Wo haidly think Crows was shot on
account of his political principles,
but, rather, on account of some poreonal
lie has been the means of driving
many crood citizens from their liomm

having some killed by hired tools,
and that a desire lor revenge, which

which are soon to take place

An extra edition of ti:o Herald
gives tho following account of the
disturbance at Clinton :
Ttie origin and j?articttlai s of the
riot at Clinton on Saturday evening
liavo boon variously stated. After
hcai ing all (ho statements, we think
tho following about correct :
There is a law prohibiting tlio sale
of liquor in Clinton. Some young
men from Kayinond brought a bottle
with then), and while tho speaking
was going on, Martin Sively and
jonie of Im friends wont off a short
Jistance to take a drink. The colored
marshal for the occasion up
l>roacl>ed thorn and forbade their
Jrinking. Tliia oidor was not regarded,
and when the marshal at( mptcd
to take tho bottlo out of
Sivtly's handjSive!)' etruck him over
the bead with it. Sonator Caldwell, J
colorod, started to settle tlio difficulty,
and whs followed by some
twenty negroes, whom lio orderod
back, but abottt oivo bund rod more
came rushing on. SSomo one tired a
shot which was followed by general
tiring and a stampede. Sivoly tired
all tho barrels of his pistols, and the
nnirrnab dnmonilnfl ln'a
dor. lie surrendered and gave up
Lis pistol, after which ho was shot
and his brainn knockod out. IIo
was then robbod of Lis clothing, and
a finger waB cut off in order to got
his ring. Tho infuriatod mob found
Charles Chilton in his yard, and
shot and killed him in tho presence
of bin fjirriilv. TiVnnt Tlirtmirina/xti
.a promising young lawyer, was shot
from liis horse u mile ami a lialf from
tho bcono of tho conflict, unl after
falling, tho savages drove their
knives into hid body in many places.
John Ncal was fatally shot in the
loft lung in the town and Waddy
Rico seriously in tho hand. Four
negroes wore found on the field, and
two who were mortally wounded.
Six ncgroos have boon found dead
about Clinton, since the whito men
of Clinton were organized at onco for
self protection, under Colonel Ilanls
ing, and telegrams woro 6ont hero
tor assistance. Fifteen minutes aft or
the receipt of tho Urat dispatch, 150
mon were ready to march and took
a special train, which reached Clinton
about 7 o'clock. About 10
o'clock mojo reinforcements came
from Jackson roads, and woro
picketed during tho night. This
closed the i iot on the first day.
