"That man shall surely die !"
Look !the brother springs forward
to plunge the knife into the inurder

clings to the widow's knees. Ho begs
that one more trii may be made by
the little girl, that of five years, with
golden huir and laughing eyes.
The widow consents. There is an
awful piuse. With a smile in her
eye, and without knowing What she
was doing, the little girl opened the
Bible as it lay upon her mother's
knee. She turned her face away, and
planed her finger upon a line.
The awful silence grows deeper.
The deep drawn breath of the brother
and the broken gasp of the murderer,
ailone disturbed the stillness. The
widow and dark haired boy are
breathless. The little girl, as she
uaught a feeling of awe from those
around her, stood breathless, her face
turned aside, and her ttuy ingers res

Mr. James Chiappell. who had a dii
culty some days befre with a negro
who he was desirou( (if driving off the
plantation of 31r. Moses And tor. on, at
the, latter's request.. The d ifliult y, we
learn, had been settled, however, at
terwards. Nl r. P..y.,iag r, 11 sheo i !I1,
proceeded to thespot. anil there learn
ed that a party of sixt.y colorod men
had gone to the house of Mr. Ander
son, where Chappell was, and Mr.
Win Satterwhite went ont and asked
what was wanterl. IlIe was told they
wanted Mr. Chappell, that they were
going to hhiig him. Mr. Satterwhite
said it could not be. They then
threatened to kill him. The party
in the house then cime out, live in
oumber, armed, when the 'negroes
went off and were joined by othere,
altogether utiki ng a large force.
The citizens, in the meantime, tOrn
ad out, and both palt ties, as night. had
come on, remaincd in poition about
two miles apait till mornin-1 r.
l'aysinger with tle company o citi.
zenti. Next morninig, having busincss
in town, Mr. Paysiiiger started back,
taking Mr. Cliappell along under ar
rest to carry out the law in his case
Mr. Jack IIendersm in company.
On the road, near Lonigshore's store,
they were stopped by a comipany of
armed negroes, frimed in line. Th is
party threatened to kill the Sherifl,
but finally eoisttcd to let him and
and the two others pass. On being
ordered to disperse, and, if not peacea
bly, they should be forced, they re
plied there were j.ot itien enough inl
Newberry to disperse then.
Returniig to the Fceene of action
near Belimwt, in company with two
young men, Mr. P. overtook a force
of con-t-bulary and colored in-rn from
town, going in the aenni diretion.
These he directed to go and nmet. the
hostile negroes, and tell tliei thit
peace had to b' preserved ; that he
would meet them, naId see what was to
be d.)ne, or what wanted. lie want
ed then to disperse, but if they want
ed war, and would have it, they
should be gratified. Arriving on the
ground, he found a large force (per.
haps600-or 800 in number) of white
men, mounted and armed, who had
gathered in his absence ; havimn"
heard, besidIe, that Crews, with it
force front Laurens, were on the way
to reinforce the Belmont outlaws.
Mr. P., then, with three or four lead.
ing men of the nieighborhood andvane
ed to the hostile party, and demanded
to know what they, wanted. The
answer was: ":Jwni6.'' 1They were
told they should have it, but they
tuu-t disperse, Mnd also give tip the
sixty who bad threatened Mr. O.'s life,
and to born his premises. After
considerable denur, the demand was
wisely agried to, but only twenty
three of the offenders could be four-d ;
these were given up and placed under
arrest. The armed party of white
mounted men, who had thus far been
kept in the background, were now
ordered up, and filed past in review,
when tie negroes quietly dispersed,
promising to go to their homes. Tfhe
town party then started on their re
turn home with the prisoners..
In the ime .time, a negro came
into) town shot in thme arm-n, and report
ed the wound inflicted by Mr. George
Johnstone, who was with Mr. Paysin
ger. A howl was at once raised, and
a party of infuriated colored boys and
meni started to take Mr. J1. These
self-appoin ted judges, and would-be
excouttoners, met the returninig Slher
if's party arid were very violent in
demonstration against Mr. J. ; in fact,
fired one shot at him. The insulting
language and threats were hard to
boar, but they wet e borne patiently.
It was ascertained, finally, that the
party suspected was not the one ; and
t~e companay of peace-makers reached
town'safely. Ihere the scene baffles
description. The town was in a up
roar-that. is. the colored portion
and pothming but'the quiet determina
tion of' the white cit izenis, and their
great forbearance, kept off a collision.
Tihe prisoners wecrd ph:eed under
guard, and finally gave bond for ap
pearance at court, which is now -sit
ting. At night, a force was put on
guard, as a necessary prccaution
against the tha'eats andl violence of
the afternoonm. Nothing transpired
during the night to disturb the quiet,
arnd in the morning no sign of thedis
tur bance could be seen.
It may be mentioned that the
mounted citizens instead of coining
towardls town moved in the direction
of Edgefield, as it was reponted that a
large force Qf negroes were near the
Saluda River, and about to cross to
join issue with the Belmonters, buat the
result of this we have not ascertained.
This is a~ plain unvarnished aceouint'
of the whole affair. 8o far as we can
learn, the negroes were wholly in the
wrong. Itf Mr. Chmappell commmritted
an offopce againa't the law, in striking
a man who grappled with him to the
law reeourso should have been had.
But this seema not'the advice of par
ty radioal leafters ;the puirpose evi
denmtly is to bring on a collision, and
the colored people are foolish enough
in be led into the trap. We don't
prevmt.t it ; but jttien a vill sooI I

bhilided coloredl p ople are deote!rmiined
to precipitate it, they will et it, WO
