Killed hy Lightning.
Ou last Friday evening about dark,
Mr. John Hull was killod by lightning
ut his homo on the plontutiou of 10. W .
Goodwin, I0sq , iu thh County. The
circumstances as related by Mrs. Hall
are us follows: At that timo she nnd
her husband were standing in the door
looking out, wheu the chimney of the
house was struck by lightning. She
fell outside of tho door. The last thing
blio remembers was a jarring sound
nbout the head. Alter some length of
time she partially recovered conscious
ncss, crawled iu the houso and wcut to
bed. After getting iu bed sho saw by
the flashes of the lightning tho body of
her huBband lying near where he was
(standing iu the door. She now, for the
Grst time, began to rcilizc the situation
nnd wcut and iu formed the neighbor.?.
At the lime the house was struct, two
childrcu were on the inside, and 0110 of
them, perhaps both, near the fire place,
but neither was injured. A plate out
of which one of them w?s eating was
broken perhaps, by a falling brick.
The deceased was burnt on right log.
The leg of his pantaloons and also the
fIioc corresponding were torn or bursted
There wore no other mirks of violo:ico.
Mrs. Hall was also burnt slightly,
An inquest was held on Sunday by
Coroner Dristuw, Dr. Vidal making the
posl moricnt examination. The verdict
of the jury was that deceased catnc to
his death by lightning, according to tho
facts above stated.
This is the third Corouer's inquest
in this Couuty ou Sunday, within the
past three wcck3. One over the remains
of lligdon Dudley was held on the 2nd
inst ; ono over the remains of A a ou
Clark was held on tho 9th iustaut, nud
one above mentioned makes the third ?
The lime is Coining.
It is extremely refreshing during
these exceedingly hot days of August to
read tho disinterested words of advice
offered to the Republican part}' of this
Stato by its quite natural allies aud
warm friends (!) the Democrat ic news
papers. From tho mountains to tho
seaboard como flaltoring words ot com
roendation, and we are only surprised
that the Republicans havo held out bo
long from the proffered embrace. These
patriotic and politically pure public
journals, interested iu nothing but the
advancement and prosperity of the
State, would scorufully put asido auy
promise of pecuuiary support from a
corrupt administration. Tl cir columns
would teem with denunciations of any
party which would offer to shaic with
them in the public robberies of the
The News and Courier and the
Phamos, notably of all others, would
not touch the radical pitch for fear of
defiling their virgin white Democratic
fingers. Oh no!
The handsome buildings from which
both these journals send forth their
fiery lulminatious? against Mr. Chamber
h\\o i,n particular aud the Republican
party iu general?were erected from the
profits of a legitimate newspaper busi
nes*; at least wo arc told so?but then
it is human naturo not to believe all
that one hears nor all he sees. Just
now both those papers have taken upon
themselves the herculean task of dotnol
isliing one man in the interest of some
other man. What their motive is cau
not be judged from their published
words. They kuow that with Mr.
Chamberlain in tho Executive chair
public pap to Democratic newspapers is
at an cud, and they further know that
no nioacy from tho State Treasury
would be used to control Democratic or
uny other newspapers in the iutcrost of
any clique, faction or party. Ttoy
fully realize this fact, aud act accord
ingly. Let Mr. Chamberlain be elected
Governor of this Stato, nnd wo will
mako tho prediction that the Charleston
News and Courier will not be offered
auy sum of money, largo or small, to
keep silent upon any point. .Neither
will it bo made an official paper in
order to draw its sting. Those days
have gono by, and no more money cau
be mado in that way. The time is
coming when even Democratic news
papers will be compelled to care more
for principle than for money. It has
been a long time since such a state of
afTuirs existed in this section, but it is
coming, just as sure as fate. ? Columbia
