rew, and we clip from the Augusta
Chronicle. the origin au results of
the difficulty. The excitement through
ut the State has been intense, and
many of the militia threw down their
irms. But prompt obedience of the
Greenville companies speaks volumes
for the loyalty of the up country. At
this writing the State troops are in
possession of Dirliogton, and all is
auiet It has required the utmost
exertion of cool heads on both sides
to avert still greater calamities. The
dispensaries at Darlington and Flor
ence have not been sacked. The details
will be more fully given in the next
issue.
The following communication re
ceived here to day gives the first in
formation as to how the trouble star
ted at the depot in Darlington :
"A very sad tragedv occurred, at
the station on the C. & D. railroad by
which four persons lost their lives,
and three others were painfully
wounded " It began with an attack
made suddenly and unexpectedly by
Fioyd, the dispe'nsarj~ agent, on Youn'g
Rodgers, the clerk at the Entf-rpr-ise
Hotel. A young man rushed forward
to) stp the fight and the twenty con.
stables who were present covered him
with their guns and ordered him back.
The city marshal about this time,
with an assisetant, ca me up to quell
the fight, and the constables covered
him also with their '- mncheter's and
refused to let him interfere. One of
the constables, MicLendon, began
cursing Frank Norment, who wished
to stop the fight, and on his answer
ing back, shot him dead. The consta
bles then presented-their gun., and
two of them, Pepper and another
whose nanme I forget, fell.
Pepper was shot dead and the other
was mortally' wounded. The rest of
the constables hurried off a short dis
distance, faced about and flred a vol
ley and then broke and fled Louis
Normnent received a painful wound.
Our brave chief of police, in this part
ing volley received a painful wound,
and young Lewis Redmond was shot
deadj."
.The train that was fired into by the
citizens was seen this morning. It
showed that seventeen bullets hit it.
The constable, McLendon, I under
stand, was the man who killed both
of the citizens. I am told that he
emptied his Winchester and his pis.
tol bo0th before he -was downed and
himself killed.

DBFYING THE GOvERNoN.
Columbia, 8. 0., March 81.--The
governor has declared Darlinigton and
Florence counties in a state of insur
rection. He has also ordered the
railroad authorities not to transport
any bodies of men unless authorized
by him. The railroads have thus far
refused compliance. The governor
has also ordered the telegraph com-.
panies not to tr-ansmit any news of a
war-like tendency. Obedience to this
order has likewise been refused.
The Edgefield Hussars,-Gov. Till.
man's home company, will leave Edge.
field at 6 p. m. for Columbia. The
Sally Rifleti of Orangeburg and a
company from Aiken will also reach
hero to-night. TIhe ten Greenville
do.mnty companies are under arms and
awaiting orders to move. Telegra
phic response has been received from~
mnilitary companies throughout the
State, and during the night and all
tomorrow troops will be pouring into
Columbia. Th e situation is very
grave.
It is understood on the other hand
that citizens of Columbia have signed
a paper agreeing to go to Dar-lington
to asisiit the citizens who are after the
coustables. It is reported that an at.
temp~t will be made here on the arrival
of the Nowber-ry Rifles to force them
to return or prevent them from pro.
