Was committed near the banks of tho
South Edisto lliver in this county on
the 2d of this month. It seems that a
white man named Phillips had boon l.v
ing with a mulatto girl nbmt 15 years
of age, and being threatened with
exposure, determined upon murd-jr.
This ho accomplished by inducing his
victim to follow him in tho diro'tian of
Aikeu county, under the promise that
he would "fix her all right." Having
got her near the river where his colored
men hud been stationed to assist hi n i u
his hellish design, ho got out of his
buggy, directing the gill to do likewise
and shot her. She fell but was not killed,
lie then instructed h's colored accom
plices to finish hi.s work. They shot
her then until she was dead. During
her death agonies she was deliver cd of
the child begotten by this fiend, Phil
lips. These blood hounds having com
mitted murder, set about then, as all
incarnate devils do to secrete tho evi
dence of their ghastly dood. The wo
man and child were tied together, and
hung about with irons and thrown into
tho river. On the 4th of this month,
however, they were discovered in a cove
by two men who were out fishing. The
body of the murdered girl was at once
recognized, and the seducer and nur
derer tmpected. Steps were taken by
Trial'Justice Phillips and others which
led to the nirct-t of all three of tho
parties. T'he colo red men confessed
their guilt, ftnd that they were to rc
coivo one hundrpd dollars a pioco for
taking a human lifo. May a speedy

est, of the North is determined that
the next crop of the South shall be a
large one. They have even discovered
that what tipj car to be misfortunes are
really blessings in disguiso. The great
flood iu the Southwest, last spring,
which covered thousands of square miles
of the littest cotton lauds in the country
and reducod thousands of agricultural
laborers to the point of starvation, has
really brightened the prospect ol a large
yield of tho staple. The New York
Daily Bulletin has the amusing effrontery
to assert iu this connection : "But
experience has demonstrated that in
undations aro not always calamitous;
but that, nn the countrary, the South is
actually benefited by them." The
bears will infor m us after awhile that
caterpillars and the army worm are the
uccessary adjuncts of a large crop.
