Murder in AbbeTile.
Hiram Wooms was shot through
the hoad and instantly killod, by Low
is Granrt, at Tabernacle (colored)
camp'mecting, at Abbeville C. I., on
ttrO' 14th ibst. The bullet entered
Weems' skull, just above the left oye,
ranging to to the right and down.
The murder is said to have been Un
provoked and brutal.
In the municipal election in Green.
ville on the 18th inst., the regularly
nominated ticket was elected, defent%
ing the Independent (mild term for
Radical) ticket, headed by Maj. T. B.
Ferguson for Mayor, by a handsomo
m.njority. Tho following is tho tickot
elocted: Mayor-W. L Mauldin; Al
dormon-G. G. Wells, It. A. Caublo,
Dr. Waddy Thompson, John M. Curo
ton, Henry Briggs and J. C. Boyd.
The disorganizors (Independents)
were completely squelched, and we
congratulate the good Domocrats of
Groenvillo on their success.
We publish on our outsido this
wook a lottor of a Charloston corres
pondent of the New York Sun, headed
"Moses in the witness box," which
purports to give some very interest
ing facts to the public, and makes
some statements about shielding Do
mocrats implicated in the frauds of
tho IRadioal administrations sinco the
war. These statements we did not
credit, and believed that in duo time
the falsity of the assertions would be
exposed. The able and vigilent Coluin
bia correbpondont of the News and
Courier has investigated the matter,
and here is what he has to say about
CoLUMBI, August 13.-The mom,%
bers of the Investigating Comuiitteo
assert, in the most emphatic terms,
that there is not one wvord of truth in
the letter of a Charleston correspond

New York Sun and which wvas repub..
lished ia the Newvs and Corier to
The statement that an attempt has
boon made, or will be made, to shield
.Uemocrats concernedi in the public
frauds is particularly denounced, in
plain terms, as a lie out of whole
cloth. The comnmitteou have expressly
declared their intention to spare no

It is probable that Lihe ~r os
pondent will be summoned at once
and required to give his authority for
his information. If there is a leak
the committee are determined to find
it, and if' there is not the correspon
dent will be placed in a bad light.
THE PICKENs SENTINEL comes to
us from the mountain heights of the
'Blue Ridge. This paper devotes some
space to locals, but keeps its main
.eye on the current matters of the
State and the nation. This paper is
nicely printed on lar'go typo. The
p)ublisher could give as much reading
matter on a smaller sheet and save an
item in paper bills these hard tim'es.
The editor is .D. F. Bradley, a staunch
Democratic Reproson tative in the
General Assembly from that County.
--Abbevillo Pross and Banner.
We wvould devote more spaco to
locals, but the fact iq, friend Wilson,
locals in this County havo boon about
as scarce as candidates for County
offices on the Radical ticket. If the
editor of the Press and Banner had
carried out the scriptural injunction
in his youthful days and took unto
himself a wife, he, in all probability
wvould r.ow have a half dozen, or a
dozen, grand children pratling around
his knees, and would be in favor of
typo as large as a Juno-bug, and a
paper as small as a shoot of' fools cap
writing paper. We are much obliged
jo the Press and Banner for its criti
pige, and as we are young, will try
to improve with increasing age.
The elections in Alabama last Mon,
daty week for county offleers resulted
in a defeat of the Radicals all along
the line. Mongomiery and Dallas
coun'ties for the first time, were carried
by the Democrats. Barbour', also el
outed the Democratic ticket.

Tho Turks havo again defeated the
Russians on the Osma, Qn i with the
news of the batbo como at of the
cold blooded, heartless 'A" inhuman
massacre of twelve orfliften thousand
Christians by tho Tuiks: We have
not heretofore taken much interest
in this war, but from now on
we shall watch its progress a great
doal mo,ro closely, and rejoice when
the complete triumph of the Russian
arms is announced. The Turks should

egraphic account of the massacro:
LONDON, Aug. 14.-The News' But..
charest correspondent telegraps as fol-i
lows: "I have written the following
as I received it, and from tho terriblo
accounts which the fugatives continu
ally bring over the Balkans, I fear it
must be only too true. On July 31,
the day of the Russian ovacuation of
Eski Saghra, the Turks ordered that
all Christians, men, womon and chil

houses. Those who remained within
woro burnt alive. Tio order was giv
en to burn down and destroy every
particlo or Christian property in the
place. Many leading Turkish mor

dispatched a large number of Bashi

This district is one of the richest in
that part of Turkey. It contains a
very large proportion of Christian in,

500 schools and colleges, all of which
have been burned. Tho destruction

from 150 to 200 families eich. Scurco.

The Bulgarian fugatives at Gabrova
and Solvi estimate that frcm 12,000 to

CorUMBTA, Auigust 15.-The Su

A new mode of running a foot race
was practiced at this place last Mon,
day. The race was between Messrs.
W. T. O'Dell and - Hollis. The
ground-one hundred yards--was
stepped off. Mr. 0. took position
half way betwveen; Mr. II. started at
the begining of the 100 yards and ran
with a fence rail on his shoulder; Mr.
0. started as Mr. HL. came oven with
him, but made only a slight effort to
run, for Mr. II. whized by him 80
fast that ho saw the race was hopeless,
dropped his head and turned back
to the great amusement of his friends:
It is said the man who cnrries the rail
and runs the hundred yards will al.
ways beat, for ha~ is running at full
speed when ho comes up eo en with
the man who is to run the 50 yards
and can get out before his opponent
can got under full speed and overtake

Pursuant to notice previously
givon, a ineeting was held in the
Court House on Saturday, the 18th
day of August, 1877, for tho purpose
of organizing a cavalry company.
On motion, D. F. Brudley, Esq., was

The Stock Law.
Tho election on the stock law in
Laurens County took plack on Tuos
day last, and resulted aa follows: In
Laurens township-yes, 92; no, 534.
In Souffletown township-yes, 63; no,
227. In Hunter township, there n as
no election, in consequence of the
managers failing to appear. The no,
groes voted solidly against the pro

The election in Chester county also
occurred on Tuesday, resulting in a
considerable majority for foncing tho
stock in every township. There was
great unanimity among the voters in
favor of the chnge, and Chcstcr will

This Sarsaparilla is a combination of
vegetable alteratives - Stillingia, Man

of Potassium and Iron, and is the most
efficacious medicine yet known for
the diseases it is intended to cure.
its ingredients are so skilfully com
bined, that the full alterative cffect of
each is assured, and while it is so miild
as to be harmless even to children, it is
still so effectual as to purge out from the
system those impurities and corruptions
which develop into loathsome disease.
The reputation it enjoys is derived
from its cures, and the confidence which
prominent physicians all over the coun
try repose in it, prv their experience
of its usefulness.
Certificates attesting its 'virtues have
accumulated, and are constantly being
received, and as many of these cases are
,publicly known, they furnish convincing
evidence of the supriority of this Sar
'saparilla over every other alterative
medicine. So generally is its superi

we need do no more than to assure the
public that the best qualities it has ever
PoSSessed are striCtly maintained.

A Result of Obstructed Digestion.
Among the hurtful consequences of obstruc
ted digestion, is the impoverishment of the
blood, and since a deteriative condition of the
vital fluid not only produces dangerous organ
ic weakness, but., according to tie best medi
cal authorities, sometimes causes asphyxia. it
is apparent that to improve the quality of the
blood by promoting digestion and assimila
tion, is a wise precaution. Hostetter's Stom
ach Bitters is precisely the remedy for this
purpose, since it stimunlates the gastric juices,
conquers those bilious and evacuative irregu
larities which interfere with the digestive
processes, promotes assimilation of the food
by the blood, and purifies as well as ent iches
it. The signs of improvement in health in
consequence of iing the bitters are speedily
apparent in an accession of vigor, a gain in
bodily substance, and a regular and active per
formance of every physical function
