The stalwarts of the North were not satis
fied with the census returns from this State,
and caused the department to send back the
third time to make the enumeration in town
ships which they declared were fraudulently
returned by the first enumerator. The cen
sus bureau makes the third report which
show, in the eighth township re-enumeratad,
an aggregate population of 17.372 against
16,993 reported by the local enumerators in
June last. Under the new apportionment,

The llonid of Directors of the South Caro
lina Pnitentiary at their recent ineeting,
hired owt 125 convicts to a phosphate conpa
ny at ',10 per month each. Another phos
phate company has 72 at the same figures.
This includes, board, clothing, guarding and
medical attention. The hire of convicts to
railroads was raised from $5 to $7 per month.
The Directors also have a $16,600 contract for
getting rock for the Charleston jetties. They
expect to make the institution self sustaining
and will not likely call upon the State for a
cent of appropriation next year.
The Stock Law.
At the late session of the Legislature, the
Stock law was extended to the entire coun.
ties of Marlboro and dumter, and to a por
tion of Edgefield, Orangeburg, Oconee and
Greenville (in Greenville county the fence
was put to the North Carolina line). In
Oconiee the law extends from the Keowee
iver, where the line fence of this County
goes to the river to Jarrett's bridge on the
Tugaloo river. Nothing was done with the
law in this County, thare being no petitions
asking it sont to the members notwithet and
ing, we understand a majority of the land
owners outsido of the "hog up" desire the
law extended to the North Carolina line. This
law wherever tried gives almost universal
satisfation and grows constantly in public
favor. We believe it is only a question of
time when it will be made a State law, and
would advise our people to make their pre
AtL the last session of the Legislature
the time for holding Court of General
Sessions at this place was changed to
the Second Monday in .Janury, First
Monday in June and Third Monday
in September; and the Court of' Comn
mon Plens to tho Wednesdays next
following Lbe Second Monday in Jan
uary, First Monday in June and Third
Monday in September. Last Monday
was the itime that the first Court
should have been hold under this new
law, but the officers of the Court and
others at this place were under the
impression that the law did not take
effect until twenty days after its ap
proval by the Governor, and as the
bill did not pass until about the close
of the Bession it could not take effect
until after the time fixed for the hold-.
ing of' the first Court at this place
hence no juries wereodrawn. But the
Act provides that "from and after tho
passage of this Act" the Courts
shall be held, &c. Under this clause
it scorns that the Act took effeot im,
mediately after its passage. Judge
Kershaw and Solicitor Coth ran so con..
strued it and camne up to .Pickens last
Sunday for the purpose of opening
Court on Monday, but finding no ju..
ries they loft on Monday, and we will
not have a Court until next June.
The lawyers, we understand, on aos
count of the short time from the pas
sage of the Act until the first Court
should have been held, were not pre
pared with their cases, and if the ju
ries had been drawn nearly all of the
oases would have been postponed
until the next Court, consequently no.
body is hurt, but the County Is saved
the expenses of one Court which would
have amounted to a coosiderable sum
and It is really an advantlage to the
tax payers of the County that no Court
coulid be held.

Killed by Maeck Gowan, colored.
On Sunday night, the 12th of December
last, Andrew Anderson, white, and Mack Gow
an, colored, (known by some as Mack Blythe)
both tenants of Major J. H. Ambler, got into
a dispute in the kitchen of Major Ambler,
about seven miles North of this place, which
resulted in the killing of Anderson by Gow.,
an with a piece of lightwood. Coroner Park
ins held an inquest, and Dr. G. W. Earle, og
this place made the post mortem examintion.
AnderS)n was intoxicated at the time the
difficulty occurred, and lived twenty-three
days after he reeeived the blow. The skull
of Anderson, Dr. Earle says, was fractured,
which caused his death. Gowan has been
arrested and lodged in jail to await his trial.
The following Is the tessimony taken at the
Jacob Lay, colored, sworn, says: I live in
Pickens County; know the deceased. On Sun
day, Dec. - 1880; I was in Maj. J. H. Am
bler's kitchen. Mr. Anderson went in and
called for me, and when he got to me caught
me by the hair of the head. Says, "where is
that G-d d-d nigger," and struck Mack
Gowan on the shoulder. Mack moved his
chair, but said nothing-reached over and got
a piece of pine and struck Mr. Anderson, who
fell on the floor-struck him on forepart of
head. Mr. Anderson lay about a second or
more and, trying to get up, caught door and
it gave way, so he fell out at door backwards
on his head-door about three feet high-was
a rook and block at. door, but do not know if
he struck either. Have seen him several times
at his house since that; about three weeks
since he was struck.
Alfred Price, colored, sworn, says: I live
in Pickens County, with Mr. Ambler. I know
the deceased, have known him six or seven
years. I was in Mr. Ambler's kitchen on
Sunday night about three weeks ago and Mr.
Anderson came in and got after Mack Gowan
for some money he owed him. Mack told him
he did not have it. He came into kitchen the
second time and after taking hold of Jake and
me lie asked for that "damned nigger" and
bays, "Here he is," and struck Mack on the
shoulder. Mack moved his.chair and took a
piece of pine and struck him on the head-on
the front part of his head. Mr. Anderson fell
on the floor, and Mack walked out of the door.
le lay about a minute and got up. I did not
see him fall out of door, as I walked out. Have
seen him several times since, It was three
weeks last Sunday night since he was struck
by Mack. Mr. Anderson acted as though he
was drinking, and seemed mad at Mack. When
Mack struck he was standing and broke the
pine in striking-stick about size of my arm.

Mack got a piece of pine and struck him on

in the house, and when I came back out Mr.
Anderson was falling out at kitchen door. I
afterwards went down to M1r. Anderson's
house and he was down in floor and seemed to
be suffering a great deal. Stick was about
the size of a man'swrist and broke in three
pieces when Mack struck. I think Mr. An

The Btringent Whiskey Law.
MR. EDITOR : I hail with gratitude and
pleasure the law recently passed by the Legis
lature respecting the whiskey trafio. It Is
certaiuly a step in the right direction, andI
hope that it is but initiatory to a more exten,.
ded and stringent enactment. Whiskey and
like intoxicating beverages, have wrought in.
calcable damage to our country. It has ruin
ed some of the best talent, and brought shamie
and disgrace upon the most honorable families
of our State. We are glad, indeed, to see that
the aut horities of the State have at last awak
ened to the Importance of suppressing so dis
tructive an agent. Some, I know. will con
demn this action of that honorable body, but
the good peoplo of the State will applaud.
Pickons County will be largely benefitted if
her good citizens will profit by the law. In
this County It amounts to a prohibitory law
for the County, as no man in the County has
a right to sell it in any shape whatever, since
It is prohibited at Liberty and Central. It
was wise to include Bittern made with intoxi
cating liquors, as these, for the most part, are
disguised with some kind of drugs stmply to
obtain a patent, and do not possess any medi,.
cinal value. Miany of them are gotten up by
bar-keepers who make no pretension to tbe
knowledge of the science of medicine. It re
quires no chemist to determine their worth
lessness. Each bottle has upon its label the
times a day Is suficient to secure its medicinal
efect, (which Is usually the dose.) then a
whole bottle full drank at once (as it often is)
would produce other effects than mere drunk,
ness. This of itself is sufficient proof that
they possess no medical worth ; and the sell.
Ing of them, in a moral point of view, is as
condemnable as the selling of whiskey or oth
er intoxicating drinks, which Is nothing less
than the price of blood. When men have no
more respect for moral obligation and charso
ter than to make and vend such a gigantic evil,
and thereby Impose such suffering and sorrow
upon a peaceable public as necessarily follows,
it in prudent and right that the law-making
authorities of the State should, by special en
actment, suppress it. It is also right and the
duty of every good citizen to aid in carrying
the law into effect. On the 14th day of this
month the act referred to takes effect. Let
every man promptly enforce the law against
all violators, without respect to persons or
position, so that the still houses as well as the
bar-rooms may be closed up and Pickens
County be freed from a curse and reproach
she has long endured. Should we be silent
and allow persons engaged in this vile traflo
to ignore the lar, and neglect to avail
ourselves of its benefits, the law will be
repealed and the future of the County will be
darker than her past history. Let us be free
from this curse while we may. SrMA.
