are striking, ia regard to Charleston as

our pre-conecived opinions and feelings
in regard thereto. Let us build up our

The Charleston merchant should also
give heed to what .is said about adver .

in tbe-adjoioing county of C^rendoi,
producing more or liss agitatfn of the
We have been at some pairj?to get as
near as possible tc tho troth irjregard to
what occurred,, in order tot qniet'or
satisfy toe public mind ia re?rd there?
to. -'-. ... J
On Wednesday afternoon fest, before
nigh t,Peter LEMON, ? bIoc!f|nac, anda
County Commissioner of Cla?ndon, was
assassinated m his boggy, ca the public i
road, about 1\ miles fron] Manningf]
The assassination took placejat or near a
branch or swamp thicket. ,; Buck shot
entered the legs, stomach J breast and
head of ?be unfortunate maf, .which, iti
is believed produced instant death.
Nothing satisfactory has ?me to light
in regard to tho assassins,' but neither
the whites or negroes belfcve that any
such order as the Ku Kwx had any?
thing to do with it. Lenio? was a turbu?
lent and offensive negrij-notorionsly
so-and had been once or.twice shot at
-once by . colored raan,; whose sister,
it is alleged, be had ratished. m And
some of these parties, (probably white
and colored) moved entirely by feelings
of personal revenge, are-?elieved'to have
taken his life. Lemon was returning
from Manning, where, i:4s reported, he
bad made some disturbance and had
some difficulty, on thc day of his death,
ile is said to have baen in a state of j
intoxication, and to hale driven back
into Manning once orj twice, before
finally taking his leave. : *
On Satuday, thc negt?es, armed, to
the number of three or ;four hundred,
rendezvoused at Fellowship Church,
(near thc place of tb? killing) and
about one hundred of ?em proceeded
to Manning, threatening to take the
lives often white men ??i to barn the
town. There wer? butjew white men
in towa, but messenger ware dispatch?
ed, and thc handful wes speedily
augmented, until", probtbly, some two
or three hundred, at different times,
The Sheriff and Intendant, wc learn,
requested Col. H. L. BENBOW to act.
A parley ensued-the cha; actor or par?
ticulars ot which wc hare not learned
and both sides fiually dispersed, after
two days. The leading11 whites acted
with promptness, but ?ii calmness and
prudence, and but for tais there must
have oeen a bloody collation.
At one time thc ne^rofs seized a
colored man, named EO?ERT NELSON,
whom they s?-?pk-imed, intending to
put him to death, lletas tescucd by
tbe whites, who declare?] that he should
not die without a fair t?al.
Thc negroes teem tolavc been great?
ly excitca, and greatly^n confusion ts
to their suspicions or information and
counsels. They rctirtfi with threats'
against certain parties ^suspicioned by
them, aod thc end ot the difficulty is
probably not yet. Tiiewhkcs are calm
and determined, and whilst they will
neither seek or encoaj gc a difficulty
with them, will nd hesitate to
strike telling blows in ? ifeace, if a col?

COUNTY POOH HOt'4*
Our attention Las b'A mote 'than
once called, within a wi t or two, to
the fact that thc present cting Soper-,
I intended of the Count) Poor House

?otumissioners; and kl t *<rc? strong
<:omplaiuts have, been ml e.,to 0?, and

propose io allude to thd calmly and
free frc OJ feeling-in ai rle io which
we think all oar pablio rievtocea and
wroDga should be dise?e dand exposed
-knowing that no bou man, be ho
white 01; black, Jpepoofl or Bepublt
caa, can object to a fair td legitimate
criticism of p'ubj?o af ?ir . Thea .to th e
points io question :
It is urged primarily : That tbe late
Board of County Commit Wrtr&i h| tjbe

j election and qualtficalioqef their ano*

they would ^ ultimately quality. The"
time fixed" by former Act of th e .Legis?
lature within which they Wettf required
to qualify- had expired, and tb?ii ?ltV
oate qualification was only dndcr a
subsequent toabl?Dg Act, extending the
The afition, then, of the 0}? Board,
in electing and putting in ^office a Su?
perintendent of the Poor. House,, it is
alleged, wai legitimate anti neces?&ry,
inasmuch as the term of- the incutoheht
expired previous to the time, at which
?.hey vacated their offices, and action io
the premises became imperative. *
Assuming that the election was legiti?
mate, find that the late Superintendent,
Mr. TRO?JBLEFIELD, was properly and
legally in the discharge of the duties of
the position, and had entered upon the
same for the term of one year, for which
he had been so elected, the question is
raised, sad we think naturally, as to
hdwhewas displ?c??j or induced to
relinquish his rights and duties in the
premises,? Statements have been made
to us, as to how this waa accomplished,
some of Which are prejudicial to up?
right bearing and ho nest ad ministration;
but as wc cannot.speak from the record
upon this point, we pass it by, with this
"rennrk : That had the incombent been
removed, and another, an outsider, nnd
not a member of the Board, been in?
stalled io his place, there would have
been but comp?ratively little ground
for unfavorable criticism,, however much
basis there might have hean for legal
But the ipcumbcot^-an honest man,
and a successful and acceptable Superin?
tendent, as far as we have learned-was
removed, and a member of the Beardy
one of the County Commissioners, now
occupies his place. This is fact, and
speaks for itself. Whether the former
officer was removed bj the Commis*
sioners, specifically to the end tliat one
of their number might talec his place, we
shall not undertake to say.
But the fact is apparent, at least,
that the Commissioners did vote for and
elect one ; of their own number to the
place, and that the member elect roted
for himself Wo here also pass over what
might be urged in arraignment, tn foro
conscienti3t~-what might be Bsid about
thc delicacy or difficulty, of taking
position which involved one's own vote,
when but three votes conid be cast.
And wo come, now, to probably the
leading point of objection urged : The
fact that thc Superintendent of the Poor
Jloi'se-and Parin, ns Such, and by virtue
of bis additional authority as CcuDty
Commissioner, makes sill purchases of
supplies, stock, implements, &c, for
running the same, and, as Count:/ Com"
missioner, approves his own bills, or the
bilis rendered for his own purchases.
Here, it is urged, isdelicacy of situation
and facilities for fraud sod improper usc
of the people's money, such as should
not be encountered oo the one hand, or
permitted bri the other, by or to any
public officer. And it is not within a
reasonable calculation, to suppose that
the pebplri could or should ".be satisfied
with such an administration of their
