Senator Andrew? und Hum
Wo happen to know something more about
that tcrriblo blast which appeared in tho
Neica and Courier of Monday lust as reforing
to Scontor Andrews, than many of thoso who
regard what it contains as being tho truth.
Wo know something of tho influences
brought about to get that confession manu
factured. Wo happen to be in possession
of information sufficient to warrant us in
saying to Sonn tor Andrews' friends, "Ho
cool." Ho is as calm as the waters of t c
sea when at rest, and as djfl.aut of his ene
mies as one girded around with the armor
of innocence can be. \Yo say again to his
friends, "Keen cool." Tho Weios and
^Courier has got all it wanted out of II.Hu
bert, and Humbert has tried to do a man who
lias endecvcrol to help litn nil the
injury in his power.
The proofs ! tho proofs ! ! are what wo
Avant now, and that is just what Senator
Andrews hns got. And they are such a<?
?will not lie. Rut they nrc not of the char
acter that Senator Andrews' enemies would
lik?! them to bo. It was his intention to
make n full and complete answer to the
chnrges made by Humbert against him, but
ns he hns been legally advised not to-do si,
and ns ho.designs to court, nay, dein in I a
full investigation at this Term of the
Court, tho public will get no answer from
him just now.

OMITTED ON ACCOUNT OF NEW
The annual statement of the Board of
County Commissioners, for the year 1S74,
is before US, but owing to the press of other
matter, and it being the new year,of 1873, we
h?yu to omit j ublishing the same until next
?..eck. Tiic report speaks well for the re
tired Boaid of County Commissioners.
If we remember aright, there is an Ordin
ance of tho Town making it puulshablo with
a fine ui on any one who allows his horso or
mulo to occupy, for an hoar or so, n whole
side walk. It is a dangerous practice, and
puts pedestrians to a great deal of incon
venience. 'Twere better to have no si le
walks at nil, if, on busy days, the hind feet
of a mule or horso are to render them im
passable, save at the risk of life.
THE ? NE W S TU EE T?
A number of our citizens nie eternally nt
us to 4*go for that new street." Wo tell
them that our compliance with their re
quest wont accomplish what they want. It
is the Town Council ih ey should ask to "go
for tho new street." Then they will have
it, ami not until then. Come, City Fathers,
givo us more room to walk an I ride i n.
There are some fast horses in Oraagjburg,
and they should have more than one street
to show their stiee I in.
Mr. J. W. Mosel ey will accept the thanks
of tho Nr.ws for favors. The year of our
Lord inic thousand eight bundled and
seventy-four is gone, but the liberality of
our friend Moseloy still ?ourisheth like a
green bay tree. With new hopes an I new
resolves lib starts with the new year to keap
up his reputation as nn honest and enter
prising merchant. Iiis euitonnr.s swear by
him, and the wish of tli3 Nr.ws is that when
this year shall have pissod th.it the store, of
Mosel ey fi Copes will he iiuira popular than
to-day. lie hui the best bran !y in the
world, says our neighbor.

Ou Christinas night while Mayor Mosoloy
was onjoying his Havana, and talking over
the good old days gone by, an inquisitive
personage, burgluriously inclined, entered
through the back window of his st oro (sit
uated on tho corner of Market and R?ssel
Streets) and spirited nway an unknown
amount of clothing and shoes. Tho thief
cutaway half of a window sash, then bont
one of the iron bars sufficient'y to get the
bottom end out of tho sill w hich he'd it.
This done, by slightly ben ling tin ono next
to it, a place was m ido largo enough for a
ninn to enter. Mr. Moseley does not know
exuctly w hat all was taken, but is satistio I
that the thief helped himself.
