THURSDAY MORNING NE 29,
A fine mess of Irish potatoes and cu
cunbers came to hand Tuesday from
our highly esteemed lady friend, Mrs.
Dr. JNo. R, CooK, for which she will
please accep' our hearty thanks.
See austion advertisement of Messrs.
ELLIOTT & Co. in to-days paper, of sales
Also, a notice of the arrival of fresh
goods by the same firm.
e wil1 publish, on Tuepday morn
ing next, the remarks of thd Hon. W.
W. Bovoe, delivered in the Couri
House in Winnsboro on Wednesday,
June 21st, before the public meeting
held on that day. Thoso wishing extra
opies of the paper containing tl
speech, had best order them before pub
lication. All orders left at our office foi
the paper promptly attended to.
In our last issue we published a pam
graph taken from the -Raleigh Progrest
-wbich said that the Hon. LrewS E,
PAusoNs had beqm appointed Provis.
ional Governor for South Carolina, and
in an editorial on the subject we ex.
pressed the opinion that the Pog-rea
had made a mis-print in giving out
State a Governor. In order to be more
thoroughly satisfied about the matter wc
telegraphed to the editor of the Progress,
asking if it was not a mistake that Mr,
PARSoNs was appointed to the position,
when we received an answer that "there
has been no Provisional Governor ap
pointed for South Carolina." .
We said in the editorial referred tc
dat Mr. -PARSoNs had likely been ap
pointed as the Governor of Alabama,
and taking the matter in connectior
with the dispatch received by us froir
4C1e editor of the 1T-ogress,-it places the
matter beyond p do6n&t, that Mr. PAR
aSoNS is the Goverfioer of'Alabama.
This then settles the questioh. Mr
- PAEisoNs is the appointed Governor o
Alabaama and tiot of South Carolina
We hope to see the Hon. W. W
Bovon plkced in that position ovei bul

Will the Winnsboro News be so good

so many fluctuating teports, and nothing
authoritative, that the minds of travel.

may be well to report, from time to

our rilways, and the existing state of
travelling facilities. We are asked
about this very road a dozen times a

there it is likely to stick for some time.
As soon ai we can get any relable in
formation in regard to the road, we will
be enabled to give our cotem. the pro.
gress of work on it. At present we are
just as much in the dark as to the status
of the road as our worthy cotem.
No action whatever seems to have
been made to push rapidly to comple
tion the road,-why, it Is said, on ac.
count of the President and chief employ
ees of the road being unable to procure
labor and iron. We'll have to "wait
and watch," and hope for the best.
The Richmond Whigq says that Rev.
erdy Johnson, who appears in the con
spiracy trial at Washington as counsel
for Mrs. Surratt, it is said will confine
his argument to a denial of thejurisdiction
of the court taking the broad ground
that persons.charged with crime, who are
not in the army or navy, are only amena
ble to civil courts, where the latter are in
operation. It is'said to be replete with
hieoriua1 and leal prooodento.
Henry Winter Davis has lately em.
ployed the following'language with ref.
erence to the court:
AIt is not a court at all, but an un'
lawful combination of tregpassers, usurp.
ing the functions of a court, guilty of a
crime, and not exercising any authority.

RF.STORATION op QovrnNMErNT. -
We learn that Mr. Boyce. has returned
froyn his mission at Washington; that he
saw and was well received by the Presi,
dent, who declared himself in a friendly
and indulgent manner -as regards the
State, dud expressed the desire to receive
the early avowal of the people in favor ol

come.to us from trustworihy sources. Ii
respect to the popular movement in
South Carolina, we uned but add that,

information, we'are led to the belief that
the people are moving in every precinct
to the same end. The Hon. Mr. Gibbes,

was our pleasure,, a day ago, to meet on

of restoring the railroad and facilitating
the transportation of persons and freight.
Mr. Peake, the able Superintendnt, has
once more taken the reins in hand, and
his Uell kcown ability leaves is in little
doubt that, by autumn, the road, in its

the mostembarrassing obstacle at present;
but we trnst.that the cars will soon run

which will greatly lessen the present em
